THE Fifth Volume of this Collection makes its appearanco

at the most eventful period of the war-it includes, therefore, matter of the highest importance, and contains all the official documents respecting the late Negotiation, the war between this country and Spain, the progress of the French arms in Italy and Germany-the armistices and treaties concluded with the German and Italian powers—the correspondence between the French Republic and the United States of America, upon. the subject of the differences that exist between them; together with many other articles relating to the external and internal operations and state of the different belligerent powers.

Several of these articles, particularly the important correspondence between the governments of America and France, have never before been published in this country.

The Editor has examined the materials of the Fifth Volume

with all the care and attention in his power—he has admitted no papers upon loose or doubtful authority ; and he feels a hope that the same accuracy of translation and clearness of arrangement will be found in this volume as in the four that have preceded it.
