FO RtEVIVING THE'
T [IL Subscriber, in proposing the re-es
tablistiment of the Southern Revi. w,
deems it unuecessaiy to refer to the' history e
that work, which is alread in tioe possession ot
the public, or to dwell on the high estimation in
which it was held both at home and abroad du
ring the period of its continuance. Sufice i
to say, that its career, thouigh brief, was, ats all
aditiit, brilliant-creditable to the South and to
the wtuole American Union. Its failire-the
subject of universal regret-was owing, it is
well known. not to a destitution of talent and
public spirit, but arose 1st, from its limited cir
culationa, which was by no means adequate to
sustain a work of such Magnitude, and 2ndly.
from the political differenceswtich agitated the
counttry about the time of its discontiuance,
dividing the friends of Southern Literature in
to two great parties. and preventing that har
niony of opinion and co-operation in the dis.
cussion of leading'questions. which is desirnble
in a-work professedly devoted to the cause of
the Sunth and the whole South.
It is proper to consider first, the utilit% of'
Reviews, regarded as organs of the literary spi.
rit and opinions or the age, and s- ondly, the
importance and ntecessity of establishing such
a-work at the Sou-h. at the present time. On
the first point, it is scarcely ticcessary to sai
much, in the present advancied stage of period.
ical literature. Ably conducted Reviews are
the offspring of a high state of civilization. and
are the best evidence, now-a-days., that catn be
furnished of intellectual advancement. and the
prevalence of a pure and elevated philosophy
The lrst half century has produced few un
thors of eminence. either in Great Britain ar
America, in comparison with the half c it111
that preceded it. and the reasoa probably is, tnot
that there has been a want of zenim. talent and
scholarship inthisconfessedly intelle'taul age
but simply because distigtiisihed scho'ars i.-t' e
found a 'readier and a bet:er orarn throtiah
which to act directly on the public mtind in Re
views, than throtugh the mnediumi of bookis-the
old, more tediotis and more expensive miethod.
If thprefore, it be asked, what evide'nce is or
can be furnished of the smperior inteltigence
and progress of tho present century-a pro
gress of which we are so apt to bast-the re
ply is that it is to he founid in the high character
of' the Q-uarterly Reviews abroad and at hotie.
If it be affirmed, that we have no native lieta
ture in this country, and therefore no materials
to furnish the vround work 'or Reviews. the ani
swer is, that our Reviews constitute our native
literature, and that if learning and scholarship
are sought for, they are to be found in our Re
v'iews, whic'h therefore should he wartmly aind
firmly supported, as an evidence, and a fair' otne,
of our literary pretensions and our national
character. Besides, nto otte catuse. it may he
safelv atfirmoed, has cotntributted so much to eli
cit talent, to awakena literary ambmition, nund to
produce time hiighe'st ordtes of' flne andi pmowerfitl
writing, as the establishment of R(.vi wvs; and
iimny individuals have been stimulated to ex
traordinary etforts. and have beeni suibsequenttly
known far and wvide to famne, ini consehmence of
the opportunities they htave' enjoyed and inimro
v'ed, of' conitribuiting sucucessfully to works of so
inflatetntial and highly respectable a chtaractet
individuals, who, otiherwise, in all probaability.
wouild never leave hbeen tempted to test their
stre'ngth on the litetrarv arena with stuch comnpet
itors as they would be' likely to meet there.
Thte great aim of Reviews is. to disetnss sub
jects learnedly,,thoroughly,profonindhy-inl such
a mnantieras to bear upon the whole social sys
tenm. and pro.:nuce a broad. deep and piermanentf
implression uponi the general c'haracter of'a peo.

knowledge. not to foeter prejudices-to create.
'direct and control-aot to echo opinions-toi
'promduce beneficial chngnes up~on a large scale
-not to perpetuate oryevene tolerate existing a
huses. It is obvious, therefore, that while, in
the infancy of Amnericani literature. a spirit ouf
indulgenice has beetn felt and extetndmd to tire
faults of our lighter periodicals, which are rap.
idly issued from tihe press, aind wvhich. have
seu've'd as- vehicles often for the.rattempts of the

In respect to the iniportancee and ne'cessity, of
estabishinmg snch a work at th- Sotuth ait the

mninds of our discerning and public spiritedi
citizens. We must have such a woark. or roull

held out to stimulate the ambition and pride of

Propositions iave been4 frequeittly made here
tofore for the revival of the Southern Rteview,
which unfortunately have not been crowneii
with the success that wa. hoped or anticii.ahel
for them. Different causes have beeii as'im d
for the fitiiure of these pro ects. but the l-ading
one mioubtedly is, the neglecting to avat. our
