PREFACE,

THE principles upon which the New Annual Register has been conducted, have been amply, vindie cated by the testimony of facts and experience. They are, indeed, the principles of constitutional libera ty, the principles of the Bill of Rights, the principles which seated the house of Brunswic on the throne of these kingdoms. We expect therefore to hear no more of those despicable cavils, which the voice of ve. pal faction bad raised against us, and of which thiş notice will shortly be the only memorial. ,

Should it now be abjected, that, fram having been the oppanents, we are become the panegyrists of g9yernment, we answer, that government in its measures has come over to us, and not we to them. We have never regarded men, but measures; and if that critețion be observed in deciding on our merits, we defy the most captious critic to fix upon us a charge of incon

sistency.
