The Publisher of Scott's Weekly Paper.
Tha largest Family Journal in the United
Statos, encouraged by tha very liberal pa
tronage bestowed upon his Taper for the
last seven years, and believing that the
reat reduction ol postngo will materially
aid in extending the circulation of the la
orite family newspaper, has spared neither
tains nor expense to make his popular
journal still more worthy of public patron
ise. He has just put up a new steam-power
printing-press, which was manutacturcd to
order with m especial view to improve
the mechanical appearance of the 1 aper.
lie has contracted with a new firm to lur
nish a better atticie of paper than has here
tofore been used. It is to bo manufactured
on FourJrkiier's machines expressly for
"S-ott's Weekly Pop"." He ha d-fcarat-ed
the Taper with entirely new type, a new
heading, and new vig.iette cuts, increased
the widteof tha columns, nnd extended the
the of the raPer- 11 5s now pronounced,
b all who have 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 have been made which ena
ble the publishcrlo assure the public that it
will never be behind with important News:
and ariangements have been effected with
some of the ablest story writers in the coun
try, both male and female, for a Series op
First-Rati-Storius 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
ginal articles from the first writers m the
United States, several of which are illustra
ted Nouvellettes, a new feature one that
the publisher trusts will meet with the
views of the reading public. The selected
articles from foreign magazines are gener
ally the very same which appear in the
v..- vrt mmrnzmes. our weekly issues
fiivin' us great advantages in this respect.
Scott's Weekly Taper has won wide fame
as an fntcresting and instructive family
newspaper, devoted to all the interests of
trade and business, to light literature, and
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 papec of its character in the United
States. It publishes Valuallo Recipes and
Useful Hints for housewifery, cooking, pre
serving, cleaning Furniture, &c, &c. It is
a moral instructor for youth, and contains
more really useful information than any
othsr journal. Chronological tables of his
torical events, scintillations of history, bi
ographies of distinguished men of the past
and present century, valuable essays on im
portant Scientific, phillosophic, and useful
iubjects, records ot new inventions, $c,
ote., form part of its regular contents.
Scott's weekly paper has reached a cir
culation unparalleled in the history of simi
lar udertakings. It owes Its 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 pubh
cation ; nnd 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
cree hitherto unequalled. Every possible
effort will be made to increase its merit in
proportion to its constantly increasing eir
culation and success. It is only by publish
tne a verv edition that a journul ol th size
and character of Scott's Weekly Paper can
t afforded at its extremly low price, and

Greatly increased in size, and improved
in elegance and merit. Edited by Mrs.
Ann S. Stephens, and Charles J. Peter

of this Magazine for IS32, has determined
the publishers to spare no expense for iha
ensuing year, in order still further to in
crease its list. He will therefore, add
greatly to tho number of pages, without, as
other Magazines have done, decreasing tho
quantity or elegance of the embellishments.

publishes colored steel-plate fashions regu

Latest-Styles, received direct frcrri 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

able. Most readable and original of the maga
zines. The literary department will be
entirely eriginal, instead of being made up,
as are all the other magazines, of second
rate English stories. During the last two
years, this magazine has been confessedly
the best in the country for Ladies. It has
published more brilliant tales and novels in
that period, than all its cotemporaries to

than ever. Mrs. Ann S.Stephens, the best
