Late and Important Reduction 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 nl
though grudually reduced since 1811 has
always operated as n 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 new impetus will be
given to these valuable works, ond that no
Post Office within the United States will
remain unvisited by one copy at leant of
the Four Reviews and Blackwood s Maga
zine, To show the great reduction in the rates
of postage since 1S1 1, we subjoin the fol
lowing table :
Prior to IS 15 the postage on Dlackwood
was $2 40, on a Review $1 10 ; 1815 to
1851 Blackwood $1 00, a Review $0 50,
1851 to 1852 Blackwood $0 75, average
distance, a Roview $0 38; 1852 commen
cing Oct. 1st., Blackwood 0 21, all dis
tances, a Review $0 12.
The postage on Blackwood and the Four
Reviews is now but 72 cents a year. Prior
to 1843 it was $0 80; the subscription
price of Blackwood at the same time was
five dollars a year. It is now out three
dollars, and when taken with any of the
four Reviews, but two dollars a year 1 1

20 Copies for twenty dollars, and one
copy additional to tho agent orgatter-up ol

spontaneous acknowledgment, that the
"Homo Gazetto" 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 nnd over
again repeated wish that Wo would reduce
the club prices so low that persons of mod
erate means could, by forming largo clubs,
procure the Home Gazette ior 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 price, so that as small a number
as four persons, by joining in a club, can
get the paper for $1 25 each.

Eighty pngpu per month of choice reading
matter for $2 a year, or in clubs of four at

The "home magazine" was commenced
Ocjtobcr 1S52: the editor is T. S. Arthur,
in whose hands is the entire editorial charge
of the work. A new novciletto from his
pen was commenced in the first number,
entitled "the old mans bride."
This s'ory is continued through the first
four numbers of tho magazine, Irom Octo
ber to January. With tho February num
ber another new story by Mr. Arthur, enti
tled "sparing to spend ; or, the loftons and
tho pinkcrtons," will bo commenced, to be
continued during several months. Thus,
in the first volunia of the home magazine,
two nouvcllettcs by the editor will bo pub
lished. As only a limited edition of the
tint numbers of tho magazine was printed,
those wishing "the old man's bride" mus
send in their subscriptions early.
CCr" 'i order to prevent misapprehension
on the part of the public, we will here stato
that tho homo magazine rs a monthly issue
of the home gazette, nnd contains the best
articles that ippear therein, thus fixing in
permanent shape and for ciiculation in new
channels, literary matter Irom the pens of
many ol the ablest writers in the country.
It is irom this cause that the publishers nro
able, in the outset, to furnish the work at so
low a rate.
