MONG the many advantages derived to fociety from the invention of the Art of Printing, perhaps the pubEication of Periodical Repositories for Fugitive Pieces, and the first efforts of dawning genius, is not to be efteemed one of the leaft. The variety of literary amusements, which, when properly conducted, they contain, cannot fail to furnish fomething agreeable to every tafte, which may convey instruction without the trouble of laborious ftudy. Whatever exercifes the mind, tends to expand and invigorate its faculties, and that mental exercife which is required for the perusal of a Monthly Miscellany, will neither cause any great confumption of the time of the bufy, nor exhauft the patience even of the

idle.

· Such Publications, however, notwithstanding their avowed miscellaneous nature, are ufually adapted to fome particular clafs of readers. The politician, the antiquary, the artist, and the man of fashion (a term too often abused to fignify the libertine and the debauchee) are accommodated monthly with their respective Mifcellanies. The agreeable province which we have affumed to ourselves, is to compile one appropriated to the Ufe and Amusement of the FAIR SEX. From this, we would exclude the dry and lefs pleafing details of the B 2

arts,
