THE NEW SERIES.

OUR Readers are now presented with the FIRST NUMBER of a New IMPROVED SERIES OS LA BELLE ASSEMBLEE, whuch, the Proprietor trusts, will satisfy the expectations he has raised, and the promises which he has made An Additional Sirteen Pages of Letter Press, including the Miscellaneous Varieties and Intelligence of the past Month, are given in this Vumber, and will be continued in every succeeding Number.

The BOTANY, it is hoped, will be sufficiently recommended by the high and scientific charteter of the Author, Dr. THORNTON.- The Music has the special pledge of MR Hook, the Composer, for its excellence. - The Literary part, it is trusted, is of a much higher character and stamp, than is usually found in the fieeting publications of the day; and the Ornamental portion of the Work may reasonably be expected to give ample satisfaction.

THE SKETCH OF THE INTERIOR OF COVENT-GARDEN THEATRE
