The Musical Department of thc Ladies' Compa
nion has ever commanded a large share of atten
tion, and has been looked upon with no little in
terest by its readers, and more especially thc La
dies, whom the publisher is anxious to please. It
will continue to be a Subject of more than usual
care to him, and to the Professor under whose su
pervision it is placed, to make that portion of the
magazine deserving of the countenance of every
lover of music.
Tae Work in General. Of ever' department an
equally careful supervision will be strictly exer
cised by the Editors, and all appropriate expendi
tures will be liberally bestowed, as it is the de
sign of the publisher, with the aid of his contribu
tors and the advice of his friends to make the La
dies Companion distinguished for the beauty and
accuracy of its typography, the variety and high
tone of its literary articles, the quality and value
of its music, and the unequal splendor of its pic
toral embellishments, and the accuracy of its quar
terly fashions. The proprietor pledges himself to
use all honorable means to maintainthe superiori
ty which the Ladies' Companion has obtained.
lor five years he has steadily pursued a course of
improvement, and he flatters himself that his pre
sent facilities are such as to give the work eminent
advantages over ali other publications.
From the foregoing it will be perceived that the
Ladies' Companion embraces every department
within the range of Belles-Lettres and the Fine
Arts: and no exertions or expense will be deemed
loo great to render the work equal to any other
extant. The flattering and general testimonials
of nearly every contemporary journal in the United
States, and in fact, many on the other side of the
Atlantic, have strongly asserted the undeniable
claims of the Ladies' Companion to the support ol
the public generally. There is no work that give
its readers such a groat return for their money.
Terms Three Dollars a year in advance, or Four
Dollars during the year.
No subscription received for less than a year.
Letters must be postpaid, otherwise thc postagt
is deducted, and credit given only for the balance
