W A S II I NCI TO K I A !VS.
A Series of Original Temperance Tales
BF T. S. ARTHUR.
Author of" Insubordination," "The Tem
perance Pledge," Sic. 6,'c.
The mosi distinctive feature of the
present agefis the Temperance Re
formation. This unparalleled move
ment has wrought the most remarka
ble chancres, not only in the condi
tion of individuals, but also in the
state of society. I:s progress has
been a continual series of triumphs
over prejudice, fully, vi,-e, wicked
ness nnd crime; and its results have
been of the most cheering and elon
nus character. All the social, domes
tic and political relations which men
occupy have already felt and ac
knowledged its influence; and, with
banners strea'iiins in light, it is march-
inz onward to fresh scenes of victory,
and preparing fir fiesh achievements
ot hippine33 restored, industry re
awakened, and lost reputation nobly
Among the most efficient nuxi'la
ries in this great cause, the various so
cieties of reformed drinkershave been
pre-eminent. From these it has re
ceived an impulse by which its pro
press has been almost inconceivably
accelerated. The efforts of those de
voted men, who havinz passed
throush the fiery ordeal of this debas
ing vice, feel and know the torture
and the misery it inflicts, to rescue
others from the wretchedness they
have tlnmselves sufTered, have slur
red society throughout the lenath and
breadth of this vast country; and
thoiis.-.nds and tens of thousands, re
generated and disenthralled, are now
enjoying, with invigorated health and
purified hearts, the advantages of
their magnanimous enterprise.
To aid in this moral revolution, the
subsciibers have commenced the pub
lication of a series of original Tern
peranceTales.to beissupd in 6 month
ly numbers. These tales are from
the pen of A. S. Arthur, a writer
eifted with a singular felicity in por
traying the scenes of actual life, and
prompted, as his numerous produc
tions bear witness, by a sincere spirit
of doing good to his fellow-men.
Their title, '-Six nights with the
Washinfrtonians," expresses truly
their character and desian: as thev
are drawn from actual observation of
ovpnts amonr the inem!r r.f tV
"Washingtoman Temperance Socie
ty, the great pioneers of this world-
renowned reform and detail the his
tories of some of those who have been
saved from destruction worse than
death by the well-directed labors of
those true phi!atihropists.
Each number of this publication
will crmtaiii a distinct story or sto
ries, nnd iherefore be perfect in itself,
nnd the whole, when completed, will
form a volume ofnearly two hundred
pages, embracing narratives of many
individuals, in all classes of society,
the mechanic, ihe professional man.
and the merchant who have been re
claimed from intemperance. The
field thus selected is a boundantly
fruitful. The violence of passion
the depths of self-abasement the bit
terness of remorse the rnin, bodily
and spiritual exhibited h the wretch
ed inebriate himself; and the anguish
of protracted suffering the agony of
devoted affection the tenderness ot
unrequited, but undiminishing zeal
the love that bears all and forbears
all. but too often seen in the family
circle, which surrounds him furnish
themes which, in the hands of one
who perceives so clearlv, and de
scribes so powerfully as Mr. Arthur,
cannot fail to prove of the highest in
terest. That the publication of these
tales will do good the subscribers en
terlain no doubt. To those who have
not fallen into the degrading slavery
of strong drink, the scenes portrayed
will ofTer fresh inducements to avoid
the fearful temptation; to those who
have abandoned themselves to its
maddening influences they will point
out a path by which thjy may flee
from the horrible curse they have in
voked; and to all they will show that,
to the self-sacrificing efforts of a band
of humble and unpretending men,
voluntarily associated, the country,
the world, nnd the age, are indebted
for a reform, more houorable in it
self, and destined to be more perma
nently beneficial in its consequences,
than the proudest achievements of
war, or the most dazzeling attain
ments of science.
These Temperance Tales will be
issued in numbers containing thirty
two pages each, printed with a clear,
bold type, on good paper, and neatly
done up in a suitable cover. They
will, in transportation by the mails,
be subject only to the ordinary post

Under the above title the subscri
bers will publish on the 1st of April,

ing month, a Magazine of Facts, Ar
guments, Statistics, Speeches, Edito
rials, &c &c. devoted exclusively
to the advocacy and defence of the
policy of Protection to American
Labor against the selfish and grasping
policy of Foreign Nations, especially
of those with which we chiefly trade,
which shut out ot their ports the
great bulk of our products, and espe
cially those of our Free Labor,
while they glut our markets, bank
rupt our Merchants, depreciate our
currency and famish our Laborers
and Artisans by pouring in upon U3
the products of their skill nnd indus
try, on ihe easy terms proffered them
by our low and non-Prod jctive Du

and ardently advocate the true
American Pilicy of countervailing
those gross exaction of Great Dr.-tain
and other Nations by a system of
direct, avowed Protection to our
IIomk Industry which shall be thor

The American Laborer will affirm
and maintain the policy cf encour

in our country of new or yet feeble
branches of Industry, such as the
Culture of Silk, the .Manufacture of
whatever fabrics of Wool, Cotton,
lion, oc. may be necessary for the
supply of our own wants and to se
cure and perfect our Independence.
It will demonstrate that the true
and permanent interests of but espe
cially of the Agricultural and Work

bly and signally promoted by adopt
ing and carrying out the Protective
Policy, nnd that the Wagesof Labor,
the average price of its Produce, and
the aggregate Product of the Nation
al Industry, will be surely and large
ly enhanced thereby. In short this
work is intended to form a complte
text-book for the friends of Protec

every point, of the pernicious falla
cies put forth by the foreign and mis
guided American apologists for the
policy of one-sided Free Trade.
The American Laborer will be

THE LADIE'S WORLD Or FA8HIO.V.
A Magazine of choice American Lite
rature. THE first number of a new Month
ly Magazine with the above ti
tle, embellished with the earliest
Fashions from Paris and London,
elegant, steel and mezzotint engra
vings, lace work, embrodery, music
etc. was issued for January, 1842.
The work will be devoted especially
to the ladies, and will be issued in a
style never before attempted in this
country. It will contain articles
from the most popular and pleasing
writers of the day, on every variety
of subject, but the work will be in
the main devoted to the cultivation
ofthe home virtues. Hence most of
the stories will be of a practical, do
mestie character, from the pens of
our best female writers, while the
earliest fashions in all their varieties
shall be correctly given; so as to
make the work welcome at every
fire side, in the halls of the fashiona
ble and the gay the home of the
virtuous matron, whose own needle
supplies her raiment, as well as in the
store and sewing room of the mantua
maker and milliner.

The prominent design of the Mag.i
zine will be to furnish in elegant and
attractive style, thn earliest, most cor
rect, and full report in advance of all
the other Magazines, and prior to
the issuing of them here, of ihe
Monthly Fashions direct from Paris
and London. The advantage of this
to every lady, who makes taste in
dress the least matter of life, will at
once be apparent, and to the profese
sional dress maker and milliner of th
United States, the enterprise will b
of incalculable advantage. It is pi ex
posed to issue every month a number
and variety of costume, which will
put to the blush every thing in the
way of monthly reports of the Fash
ions heretofore attempted.
For this purpose the publisher has
embarked the most ample mean and
resources in the enteprise, and has
matured his plans both in this coun
try and in Europe, prior to com
mencement. It has been a favoiite
project, and has been deliberately
undertaken, and will te canied

real excellence of the plates.

mental in the highest degree, and to

and an ornament t ihe centre table,
as well as entertaining in its literal

fashion plates, it is proposed t issue

and entertaining stories of domestic
life. To vary the style of illustra

artist, F. Quaree, Esq. will also be

at times, will be given, the mst popu
