Yew, those who know virtue are few.”—CONFUCIUS.

Remarkęs. Only a few words are necessary at the beginning of this volume. It is sometimes a hard task to steer between Scylla and Charybdis. One desires more articles on folk-lore and less on science, while another says those on science in general are too abstruse; several more announce that they are studying the ancient religions, having been drawn to them by the many references to, and quotations from, them in these pages.

A more than ordinary interest has been awakened in arcane subjects, remarkable phenomena, fantastical literature, bibliography, and so forth; and many questions have been received on these singular matters, which will appear in the current volume.

As fantastic as many of these subjects seem to be, they lie at the foundation of nearly all secret societies and religious systems; and the literature of this age is bringing to light much that has been hidden for ages. “Let there be light.”

“Let there be light.” Go on and light will come you. A very copious index to these entire volumes has been prepared by Albert R. Frey, New York, an experienced indexer, which we design to publish the present year in pamphlet form, in uniform size with NOTES AND QUERIES, thus giving to all those who possess the full set a quick reference to all matters therein.
