The tone of the correspondence between

Prospectus of. "The Age."
T HE undersigned has commenced, in the
- City of Itlohmond, the publication of
a Monthly 31agazine, under the above title.
It prosents to its readers selections from
the best European Periodicals, of Joiterary
and Scientific articles, of Novels and Sket
ches, which, having already received the
iinpriniature of an enlightened tasto, canbot
but prove accoptablo to the Southern'public.
The effort will be miade to keep the readers
of the Magazine as nearly as possible abreast
of the literary progress of the age. Arrang
nents have been made which, it is hoped,
will enable the proprietors to seouro this
The Magazine also presents original articles
from our best writers; in all .departments,
and a special aim of the proprietors of this
periodical will be to foster Southern author
ship by offering an adequate and remuner
ative field for its exercise. They will not,
however, under the plea of this design, ei
courage, by reproduction in Us columns,
that clasp of compositions which create a
vivid and unhealthy taste, to be stated only
by that hybrid literature which ingenuity
has contrived, under the name of sensa
tional roman. .
The Industrial Resources and the Educa
tional Interests of the ,South will re
ceive the ireportant share of attention they
deserve. In tho development of thqso iues
tions, its object w'ill bo to make a practical
application of the doctrine of States Rgights
to theopolicy of the country. It. will endeav
or to explain the dilssloi of t he Confederacy,
which is to demonstrate liberty regulated by
law, to exhibit-a system of 8tates, eachnsu
p rcm6 within-itsfoundation, and only hound
by a voluntary alienation of powers. It will
vindicate those elemonts of Nat iobal Ildo
pendence, which are secured by a high stan
daril of intelligence and retinoment, by ac
cumulated capital, varied industry and by
abundant facilities of interinuication. It
will promote the'adoption of all those incas.
ures in which the Confederate States are
now deficient. And, wbilst the'Constitution
of the Confederate States forblils the General
Government, to organize nnd operate enter
prises of a nature calculated to attain these
results, the projectors will consider it their
duty to urge upon the States the develop
ment of interests so indispensable to the na-'
tional welfare. . It is thup that, through the
aggregate ability of the separate .atcs, the
power of the Confederato States will ho inado
manifest. It is thus that the collision of
sectional interest and the oppression of a
common head will be avoided.
The various departnmCnts of literaturo to
which the Magazine is devoted, may be named
us follows :
1. Essays, original and selected, political,
literary and scientific, and biographical
2. Novels, Tales and Sketches, original
and select ed
3. Reviews of Books.
4. Educational Essays and News.

end, their assistance and collaboration is in

It will he entiely independent in politics,

proper criticism of such 'nots as will be
deemed adverse to this object, will be, of
course, consistant with the independent
character under which the paper is to bo
