THE termination of the Second Volume of the Annals of Philosophy will enable our readers still more completely to understand the plan and the object of the work, and in what particulars it differs from other scientific journals, - o - It will be admitted, we conceive, without hesitation, that the second volume is considerably more, valuable than the first; a sufficient proof that the attention of the Editor has not relaxed, and that, more copious sources of information have been continually opening upon him.
The great increase of original communications from men of science, sufficiently conspicuous in this volume, has rendered it necessary to deviate occasionally from the original plan, as far as regards the regular insertion of the analysis of a scientific book in each number. Such deviations cannot always be avoided ; and when we have to balance between deferring an original paper and the review of a book, we conceive it but reasonable that the latter should yield to the former.
We may now confidently anticipate an unrestrained communication between Great Britain and all the other countries in Europe where science is cultivated. The Editor fully expects to derive much valuable information from the labours of the philosophers in Germany and the North of Europe: and proper means will be taken, as soon as the channels of communication are open, to secure a regular correspondence in these countries.
