HANNIBAL, MO.: FRIDAY EVENING, MARCH 18, 1853.
The Publisher of Scott's Weekly Paper.
The largest Family Journal in the United
States, encouraged by the very liberal pa
tronage bestowed upon his Paper for the
last seven years, and believing that the
great reduction ot postage will materially
aid in extending the circulation of the fa
vorite family newspaper, has spared neither
pains nor expense to make his popular
journal still more worthy of public patron
age. He has just put up a new steam-power
printing-press, which was manufactured to
order with an especial view to improve
the mechanical appearance of the Paper,
lie has contracted with a new firm to fur
nish a better atttele of paper than has here
tofore been used. It is to be manufactured
on Fourdrinier's machines expressly for
"Scott's Weekly roper." He has decorat
ed ihn Paper with entirely new type, 'a new
heading, and new vignette cuts, increased
the widteof the columns, and extended the
size of the paper. It is now pronounced,
by all who havo seen it, to be the handsom
est and cheapest paper in the union. The
contents of the paper will continue to be
of the very hignest order of excellence.
Preparations havo been made which er-a-ble
the publisher to assure the public that it
will never bo behind with important News:
have been effected with
gome of the ablest story writers in the coun
try, both male and female, for a Series op
First-Rate. Stories on a variety of subjects,
In which, however, incidents connected
with the Revolution will constitute a prom
inent theme. There are now on hand ori
filial articles from the first writers in the
United States, several of which are illustra
ted Nouvelletles, a new feature one that
ihe publisher trusts will meet with the
views of the reading public. The selected
articles from foreign magazines are gener
ally the very ame which appear In the
New York magazines, our weekly issues
giving us great advantages In this respect.
Scott's Weekly Paper has won wide fame

to the various matters which contribute to
the formation of a complete family fireside
companion, in which amusement and in
struction predominate. Its original domes
tic stories have acquired for it a wide popu
larity, and, as a vehicle of the earliest news,
it possesses a worth not exceeded by any
other paper of its character in the United
States. It publishes Valuable Recipes and
Useful Hints for housewifery, cooking, pre

a moral instructor for youth, and contains
more really useful information than any
other journal. Chronological tables of his

Scott' weekly paper has reached a cir
culation unparalleled in the history of simi-
. lar udertakings. It owes iU success to the
fact, that it presents more reading matter,
of a better quality, in a more elegant stylo,
and at a cheaper rate than any other publi
cation ; and that its literary and news con
tents have met the wants of the great mass
of the American people, by combining in
terest, instruction, and amusement to a de
gree hitherto unequalled. Every possible
effort will be made to increase its merit in
proportion to its constantly increasing cir.
eulaticm and success. It is only by publish
ing a very edition that a journal of the size
and character of Scott's Weekly Paper can
be afforded at its extremly low price, and
this large circulation the publisher intends
, to maintain.

Five Great Novelettes.---Great
Attraction 1 1
Some five or six weeks ago, we an
nounced that wo would publish five first
class novelettes, written expressly for the
"Dollar Newspaper." Four we had in
hand at the time, and the fifth, has since
como into our possession. The first is now
nearly half through, and has everywhere
been " pronounced a story of great merit.
The following is the order of publication:
The Emigrantuire, by P. Hamilton
Myers, Esq.; thdfyiad Artist, by John 8.
Greatly increased in size, and improved.
in elegance and merit. Edited by Mrs.
Ann S. Stephens, and Chari.es J. Peter
son, itie great increase in tna circulation
of this Magazine for 1852, has determined
the publishers to spare no expense for tho
ensuing year, in order still further to in.
crease its list. Ho will therefore, add
greatly to the number of pages, without, a
other Magazines have done, decreasing that
quantity or elegance of the embellishments.
The price, too, will remain a dollar les
than its cotemporaries. As the postac
also, is less, he looks for 100,000 subscriber
The fashions exclusively in this Maga
zine. This is now tho only Magazine vvhick
publishes colored steel-plate fashions regu
larly. To each is added a full letter-pres
description, giving information on all thu
Latest-Styles, received direct from London,
and Paris. All who wish to know tho real
fashions, must take this periodical. In our
Eastern cities, it is the only authority. To
the dress-maker, milliner, etc., it is invalu
able. Most readable and original of tho maga
zines. The literary department will b
entirely eriginal, instead of being made up,
as are all tho other magazines, of second
rate English stories. During tho last two
years, this magazine has been confessedly
the best iu the country for Ladies. It has
published more brilliant tales and novels in
that period, than all its cotemporaries to
gether. During 1S53, it will be better
than ever. Mrs. Ann S. Stephens, the best
romance writer in America : the author of
"Dora Atherton," and others, will contrib
ute, exclusively for 1853. The domestic
stories foe, which this magazino is famous,
will be continued from the pons of Ella
