The best ladies' rnaeazine In the world
To complete its attractions for 1853, and
render it the best ladies' magazine in the
world.the l'ropretor has contracted fqr a
series of illustrated arlfcles from competent
hands, on horticulture, crochet-work, fash
ionable embroidery, and new household re
ceipts, mora completo than ever yet pub
lished in any periodical. These will render
it indispensable in the family and to young
ladies. Lastly, it is a Magazine oi pure
For this purpose Immoral French trans
lations, and all other exceptionable articles,
shall be rigidly excluded. Its stories shall
always Inculcate purity and refinement.
Many of its; writers, indeed, have been
recommended by clergymen for their lofty
tone, not less than for their talents.
It will be seen that no Magazine presents
half such claims to popularity.

Late and Important Eeduction in
We congratulate our subscribers and the
reading public generally, on the cheapness
with which they can now receive our re
prints by mail. The postage hitherto al
though gradually reduced since IS 11 has
always operated as a discouragement to
their circulation in places inaccessible by
expresses or other modes of regular private
conveyance- Hence as yet they have ob
tained but a comparatively meagre mail cir
culation. We hope, now that the postage
is merely nominal, a now impetus will be
given to these valuable works, and that no
Post Office within the United States will
remain un visited by one copy at least of
the Four Keviews and ulackwood s Maga
zine, To show the great reduction in the rates
of postage since la 14, we subjoin the fol
lowing table :
Prior to 1815 the postage on Blackwood
was $2 40, on a Review $1 10 ; 1845 to
1851 Blackwood $1 00, a Review $0 50;
1851 to 1852 Blackwood $0 75, average
distance, a Review $0 38 ; 1852 commen
cing Oct. 1st., Blackwood $0 21, all dis
tances, a Re'view $0 12.
The postage on Blackwood and the Four
Keviews is now but rz cents a year. Trior
to 1343 . it was $6 80 ; the subscription
price of Blackwood at the same time was
five dollars a year. It is now but three
dollars, and when taken with any of the
four Reviews, but two dollars a year I !

20 Copies for twenty dollars, and one

the club, from all sides has come the
spontaneous acknowledgment, that the
"Home Gazette" has thus far been the
purest and best family newspaper published
in the United States; but, with this testi
mony has also come the over and over
again repeated wish that Ave would reduce
the club prices so low that persons of mod
erate means could, by forming large clubs,
procure the Home Gazette for one dollar;
the price at which so many papers can now
be obtained. . To this desire we have yield
ed, and have also reduced the whole range
of club prices, so that as small a number
as four persons, by joining in a club, can
get the paper for $1 25 each.
With the new year will be commenced a
new story or nouvellette, by the editor, en
titled "sparing to spend ; or, the loftons
and the pinkertons," in which the wisdom
of true economy in all personal and do
mestic relations will be set forth and prac
tically illustrated in the author's peculiar
manner. .; .

to the "Home Gazette" will be among the
best writers of our country
