In the years close to the middle of the century, when, being connected with the press, I began to watch the current of events in the local world, the habit was formed of preserving notes of all that claimed the eye, as an aid in miscellaneous writing. These, which inevitably became more and more manifold and engaging, were a faithful guide and stay through a long and active period, and they have been supplemented to date. They are now arranged, it is believed, in the most convenient form for reference, that of the alphabet, and are published as deserving perpetuity and possessing universal interest.
