TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS AND THE PUBLIC,

OUR Readers will perceive that an Index and Title-page are given at the latter end of this Number, and which are intended to complete the THIRD VOLUME of the New Series of LA BELLE ASSEMBLEE. Only one SUPPLEMENTARY NUMBER will be published in future every year, which will afford sufficient time to render it as interesting and valuable as possible.

ORIGINAL COMMUNICATIONS, on all interesting subjects, are now admitted into the New Series of LA BELLE ASSEMBLEE, if written in a chaste and elegant style. Authentic accounts of Births, Marriages, Deaths, and Provincial Intelligence, possessing any peculiar character,will hereafter meet with the most respectful attention, and a reason will be assigned in the next successire Numbers for whatever articles may be omitted; but it is requested that all Letters be sent free of Postage.
