N  llie CAUSES nf the-i.rfq F.A.S L.E. & P, The4'tatea of lhe'inimitabIe'Hog.irth have not only been sought for with avidity in onr own country, but.have been admired in every civiliz.'d nation in the world; and,, since his death, various copies of them have, f.-um time to time, been published. Bui, wilhou.l a wish tu depreciate IheBe copies, it must he allowed that those which were engraved by himself, and received the advantage of his hitesl thoughts, may fairly claim the preference. Almost eighteen centuries ago it was observed by Horace, of men of genius and atlainnient superior to tlie vulgar, that Ihe honours and applause, which were denied them by malignity or envy during their lives, would be rendered them by more generous and jtiht posterity afttr their decease i- " Urit enim fnlg'jre suo, (jui pra*gravat arles Infra se po.3itas: extinclus aniat)ilur idem.** If this remark were ever true or applicable, it has proved peculiarly so with respect to Hogarth.   Ihe man, who, with persevering application in the exercise of extraordinary talents, found himself at a veiy advanced period of life before those talents were suitably rewarded, before he could enjoy the ease of independent afBiience, had no sooner left the world than a multitude of advocates and admirers presented themselves, lo comment on the pruduclions of his genius; to point them out to that admiration which had been cautiously aud coldly bestowed ; anil to excite that spirit of i partiality in his favour, which, by rendering his works the j objects ef search and curiosity, progressively made them, more and more valuable. The productions of Hogarth's satirical and bnmornns pencil hove been universally allowed lo have promoted the cause of nioralily and virtue, by painting vice in those disgusting coUurs which compose its natural and unavoidable contrast. His Euhjecls are calculated lo improve the Man as well as the Artist; and he teaches with effect, because he delights while he instructs. It has been said of him, th:it, iu his pictures, he composed comedies ; his humour never fails lo excile mirih ; and is directed against the fil objects of ridicule or contempt. The powersof his pencil were not wasted in Ihe illiberal efforts of personal attacks; the application of his satire was general, and the end at which he aimed was Ihe defeat of Fully and of Vice. " His graphic representations are indeed books : ihey have the tecmius, fruitful,suggestive meaning of words. Other pictures we look |it: bis prints we read." Many of Ihe. early Plates of Hogarth were engraved by hint for different prinlsellers; but those retaineil by himself, and sold both in his life-liine and after his death as a set of his works, weie seventystveii; which, in 1790, were bought by Messrs. Buydell, who added lo them more lhan thirty other Plates. All these have been rPcently purchased by the present Proprietors, who now ofl'er them lo the good lasle of the admirers of IJritish genius ; iulemling lo ad Lt.ON'S M " ,4v^^  . - .., r�S-BY HI MSELF, 'HE ENGLISH -fi^^NSilStlON, l.v Mr. O-M EA KA, - ' -------"......."" *' ING,; with Ihe ad Author of these Memoirs fii-Ihei'Editor, proving Anouynious " Manuscril di^iSlfiffelene" was not written .by Nap.i�lei�n.,   .  .   v.      ��'fjv.' � ~' �   - The FRENCH EOlTlON'ciJmin'ucs oil sale at IZs. extia boards.        -      ^.   i':.>^^'t.;^-v,. -^v.^..^ Prioted for Sit Btti%cI'yebilp�.!iU*^^^ N.B.--The nnprrcedeiited.;4;|^d >i>r (bja Work having reuriereil it necessary to pfepar^^^^iurh larger Eililiun of the Translation than was 'orighidi))p1n�ehd^l, the publi�*Bou has been unavoidably. ijet'erre.^Jif'om >TI>urst)ay till Tomorrow, when it will potitiveljf: (jijce place. rT>HE OBSERVERTof SUWiDAY U�t (i VlLL BE ON SALEDUR-lNi3 THE WEEK.
