PEEFACE.



The completion of the First Volume of the Working Man affords us an opportunity of acknowledgino- the cordial co-operation
and support with which our readers have seconded om* earnest endeavours to establish a Journal having for its aim the realisation
of the bright prospects so eloquently alluded to by Mr. Gladstone, when he said that " the nineteenth century is undoubtedly
in a new and peculiar sense, the century of the working man ; it is the century which has seen his position raised his circum-
stances improved, new means organised for his benefit, new prospects opened for the future ; and he has before him a prospect
which, as I trust, nothing can mar, of increased weight, increased consideration, increased usefulness, increased happiness in the
generations to come."

Our undertaking was, at the outset, surrounded with numerous diiBculties. We had, in a great measure, to become our own
pioneers, and to ascertain whether or not the time had arrived when the people of the United Kingdom were prepared to welcome
the advent of a Journal intended to assist in the promotion of the intellectual, social, and industrial welfare of the various classes
of workers, whether with the hand or the brain. Our programme was of the most comprehensive character, embracin<T, as it
did, the whole range of subjects affecting the industrial comramiity, and we have zealously attempted to carry it out, with what
degree of success we leave the pages of the Working Man to testify.

We have made our readers familiar with the characteristics of some of the great Workshops of the World ; told them of the
leading Working Men's Industrial Exhibitions, Working Men's Recreations, and books for the Working Man's Library ; informed
them of the progress made by Working Men's Clubs, Co-operative Societies, and similar associations ; besides furnishing much
useful information respecting Emigration and the Labour Market in the Colonies. We have also devoted considerable space to
the Woi-king Man's Means of Education and Self-Improvement, the Working Man at Home, Unhealthy Trades and Occupations,
the Investment of Savings, Provision for Sickness and Old Age, Wages, Trade Disputes, Strikes, Lock-outs, and other important
topics. Art and Science have likewise found a place in oiu: pages. The Art Workman has been both encouraged and instructed,
while the Students of Chemistry and Mechanical Science have found much that was interesting and novel. In the department of
Biography we have given portraits and illustrative memoirs of the more celebrated Men who have risen from the Ranks, as well
as of those who have, by their example, adorned the station in which they remained.

These and many other features of the present volume of the Working Man all tend to show the wide range of subjects
embraced by our programme.

In our next volume we shall aim at an even wider sphere of usefulness, by combining political topics with social and
industrial questions, and thus rendering our Journal the true reflex of the British Working Man ; aiming to be not only liis
favourite by the household hearth, his friend in the workshop, and his advocate in the social and political world, but the fearless
and enlightened exponent of those glad and happy aspirations which bid him regard the present as the stepping-stone to the
future, when the dream of labour shall be realised, and the pathway of the worker become less clouded and less beset with
difficulty and care.

La Belle Sauvage Yard, London, June, 1866.
