They cannot be raid to clafh any =more than a body of divinity and a fyftem of botany, �an interfere with each other ^ or Locke on the Human ?Underftanding and Triftram Shandy. The Copy |>fc^-plate;Magazine in each number, has a portraits a perfpefiiveView, and an hiftorical fubjeft, not relating to the hiftory of England. The'e are engraved by looker, Walker, Cplli.r, &c. The Copper-plate Mu-feum, which we prefume to offer to the public, will tbhraift in each number, an hiftorical plate, illiiftratrf i*g4zme ftriking incident in the Hiftory of England; a humorous fubjed, after the manner of the late ingenious and much lamented Hogarth; and a plate of 1 curious engravings in natural hiftory, drawn from the I r>aT obje'dh. The defigns for the Copper plate Mu-feum willbe made by the celebrated Mr. Edwards, of the Royal Academy, &c. and the.enpravi;gs will be executed-only by MelT, Grignion and Hall, whofe , alyjjties are toa well knqwn to require any encomiums here. � We would not, however,, be confidered asoppofers of Hie 6bpper-p!ate Magazine in their own walk: tjiat would'be too arduous a talk, as w'e cannot even wifh to exceed that work.

For the reft, fuch as gamefters, cheats, thieves and (harpers, with fome of their betters, they wnfte and dellroy the public wealth, without adding any thing to it. Therefore,, if any nation drive either by violence, or by lil nfage and dillrefs, any of its fubjfcls. out of their country, or fend any of thern out in foolilh wars, or ufelefs expeditions, or for any other caufes,* which do not return more advantage than bring lofs, they fo far enervate their Hate, and lei out parfof their beft hearts blord. ... In many inflances, men add more to the public flock by being out of their country, tBan in it ; as. ambafTadors, publick minillers, add their retinues, who tranfacl: the affairs of a nation merchants and tradefmen who carry on ics traffick ; foldiers in neceffary waTs, and fometimes travellers, who teach us the cuftoms* manners, and policies of diilanc countries, whereby we may regulate and improve < ur own.. All, or moil of thefe, return to us again with; advantage. But, in other inftanctF, a man leaves his country, neyer, or very rarely to return again; and then the Mate will faffer lofs, if the perfoa fotleavjng employed abroad in fuch induftry, in railing fuch commodities, or in perfcrmifig fucX'erVices, as will return more benefit to his native country, than they fufFer prejudice by Iofing an ufeful member. This is often done by. planting ~ Colonies, which are of two forti; one, to : keep con-quffed countries in fubjV&ion, and to prevent lhe neceflity of conftant ftanding armiej1: a policy \vhich. the Romans "pradlifedvtill their conquefts grew too nnmerous, ihe^corqiiered countries-.too diftantj a'nd their 1 empij-e 'too un|veildy to be managed by their native force only\y and then they became the Haves of thofe whom they conquered^ v : " The other fort of colonies are for trade, and  intended to increafe the wealth and power of the native kingdom ; which they will abundantly do if managed prudently, hnd pufand kept under a proper-regulation.
