NotwithSTANDING the innumerable obstructions which are

continually opposed to literary undertakings, the difficulty of continuing novelty when curiosity is once roused, and of furnishing 'måtter of entertainment to learning and to taste, The EDITORS of the ANTHOLOGIA HIBERNICA are at length enabled to present to the world the THIRD VOLUME of their work. At the present period, however, when they have just completed the basis of their edifice, they pause for

moment from their work of industry, and, conscious of obligations which they are proud to acknowledge, turn themselves to those patrons of perseverance and desert, wherever found, whose countenance has facilitated their labours, and is at once the most apparent proof of their own worth, and of the estimation with which they regard those labours they condescend to proteci. Animated with the flattering prospects of future support, they no longer decline a task at which many have shrunk: they will ransack with vigour the laterit vo

repositories of science, and gather strength in bearing away materials for the future embellishments of their pages.

On the nature of their plan and its utility they shall make no disquisition : but, while they forbear the indelicate employment of self-panegyric, they cannot help congratulating themselves on having engaged in the laudable: attempt of diffusing knowledge in their native land.-- Too long has Ireland been flumbering in inactivity, and has suffered her geniuses to be transplanted to other climates for that nurture which has been refused them at home!

-Hitherto she has been the passive pupil of Science ; content to draw knowledge from foreign sources :—but the voice that drives away her slumbers, shall aroufe her to emulation; and Ireland shall disdain to borrow

what she herself can so copiously supply!

As the Editors have begun this work, so shall they still continue ; and trust to public favour and public discernment for the recompense of their affiduity.

Sanctos, recludere fontes.

to mcrit the approbation of the learned and the wife shall be the object of their labour, and the end of their ambition :an ambition which virtue will not fail to commend; and a

labour in which defeat itself is not shameful.
