LITERARY MAGAZINE.

The events of the 14th of August have given reason to dread the influenza of a Metropolis, where mob law has been upheld by two inquests :--and the vast majority of the yet uncontami. nated Population resident in the COUNTRY can no longer tamely took on, and mark with dangerous apathy, the threatening steps of civil commotion rapidly treading on the heels of the Constitution. The History of the World is little more than the detail of the factions and exuberancies of the various seats of empire. Political Associations are but the airy castles of timidity; and the mutually abusive jargon of the Metropolitan Journals is but the humbug of trade, well understood by its rival Proprietors, and tending only to confuse and blister the Public Mind.

RIVINGTONS', St. Paul's Churck-yard, and Waterloo-place, London ; by whom it will be supplied with as much regularity as other Periodical Works, price Tuo Shillings. But ALL Communications (post paid) must be addressed solely to Mr. Gurcu, at Bristol ; or under cover to him at Messrs. Rivingtons'. And it is confidently expected, that as

“ THE COUNTRY CONSTITUTIONAL GUARDIAN'? is intended to express the sound sense and loyal feelings of the “ COUNTRY versus LONDON,” there will be no want of emulative Communications, on every point in which the Constitution is concerned, whether of a grave, argumentative, satirical, or playful nature,
