NOTICES OF THE ACTS AND MANUFACTURES, AND A RECORD OF THE
EVENTS OF THE TIMES.
H. NILES, EDITOR.
Hec olim meminisse juvabit.—VIRGIL.
FROM SEPTEMBER 1812, TO MARCH 1813.-VOL. II.
PRINTED AND PUBLISHED EY THE EDITOR,
at the Franklin Press,
SOUTH-STREET, NEXT DOOR TO THE MERCHANTS' COREE-HOUSE
ON CLOSING THE THIRD VOLUME OF THE REGISTER.
After a delay much greater than was anticipated, the editor has at last the pleasure to present his readers with the Index for, and a voluminous Appendix to, the third volume of the WEEKLY Register. He flatters himself that the index will be found to answer all the purposes designed; for, considering it of the last importance to the utility of the work, and feciing the too general imperfection of things of this kind--a plan, differing in some respects from that hitherto pursued, has been adopted, which appears to combine simplicity with clearness. In the choice of matter for the APPENDIX we were chiefly guided by the will to add value to the Register as a common reference and whatever may be thought of the selection, we claim this merit, that the gratuity cost us $ 600.
At the 70th number we suspended nearly 500 papers for the want of attention to the terms on which it is published. This was thought a harsh messure by some ; but it should be recollected that the validity of every periodical work depends-not upon the number of its subscribers, but upon their punctuality. Notwithstanding this procedure the list of our names has increased.
With an honest pride, sustained by the favorable manner in which the WEEKLY REGISTER is received by the public, the editor will zealously pursue the general plan of the work -and while he shall refuse to interfere in any of the party disputes of the times, do his best to maintain the cause of the republic against all its enemies : foreign and domestic. But the leading object shall be to collect and preserve an honest history and record of the events of the times, documental, military and miscellaneous,
We have only to add, (for it will give pleasure to the friends of the work) that if the ReGISTER yields to no work in America as to the number of copies printed, it has equal high ground in regard to the respectability of its subscribers ; and that, lately, many oi the most prominent characters in the United States are added to its patrons.
