EXCELSIOR:

HELPS TO PROGRESS

IN

RELIGION, SCIENCE, AND LITERATURE.

“The shades of night were falling fast,

As through an Alpine village passed
A youth, who bore, 'mid snow and ice,
A banner with the strange device,

Excelsior!"

LONGE ELLOW.

VOL. I.

NEW YORK:
A. D. F. RANDOLPH, 683 BROADWAY.

1854.

[merged small][merged small][ocr errors]

VERY gratefully do the projectors of this series acknowledge the kindness with which it has been received; and, through the assistance promised by friends eminent in literature and science, they confidently hope that future volumes may win a still larger share of public favour.

At the end of the third year, when the work is completed, it is intended to give a classified index of the subjects discussed, together with the names of the principal contributors.

In the meanwhile, it may be right to mention, for the information of those whom it concerns, that, although some of the articles are written by foreigners, they are all copyright, and have all been prepared expressly for the

pages of “ Excelsior.”

June 1, 1854.
