HANNIBAL, MO.: TUESDAY EVENING, MARCH 29, 1853.
The Publisher of Scott's Weekly Paper. I
. The largest Family Journal in the United
1 Slates, encouraged by the very liberal pa
tronage bestowed upon Ms Paper for the
last seven years, and believing that the
great reduction ol 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 .apjearance of the Paper.
He has contracted with a new firm to fur--nish
a better atticle of paper than has here
tofore been used. It is to be manufactured
on Fourdrinier's machines expressly for
"Scott's Weekly Pajr." He has decorat
4 td the Taper with entirely new type, anew
j, lading, and -new vignette cuts, increased
.the widteofthe cohvoiua, and extended the
M of the paper. It is now pronounced,
a.U who have seen it, to bo the handsom
est and cheapest paper in the union. The
contents of the prer -will continue to be
of tie very hignest order of excellence.
Preparations have been niade which ena
ble the publisher to assure the public that it
will never be behind wfth i mportant News:
And anangemenU have be m effected with
some of the ablest story wri ters in the coun
try, both male and female, for a Series op
Fiasr-RiTfc Stories on a variety of subjects,
in which, however, incident connected
with the Revolution will constitute a prom
inent theme. There are now on hand ori
rinal a.-tfcles from the first -writers in the
LVited States, several of which are illustra
ted Nou cHet;es, 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
New York magazines, our weekly issues
riving us greut advantages in this respect.
Scott's VeekV Paper has won wide fame
. fntoroetin-' and instructive family
newspaper, devotU lh 'ntterests f
trade and business, "?' ' "il . .
to the variou. matters which contribute to
the formation of a compete family fireside
companion, in which .moment and in
struction predominate. Its r,gina domes
tic stories have acquired for it a wide popu
larity, and, as a vehicle of the e.yest ne ws
it possesses a worth not excxed by any
other paper of its character in the united
Kt.t,., It publishes Valuable Recipe and
UseM lliats for housewifery, cooking, w-
.Lninr Furniture. &C&C It s
a moral instructor for youth, and contains
more really useful Information than anv
other jeurnal. Chronological Ubles of his
torical events, scintillations of history, bi
ographies of distinguished men of the past
and present century, valuable essays on im
portant Scientific, phUlosopWc, and useful
iubiects. records t new inventions, 4c,
&s., form part of iu regularon teats.
Scott's weekly paper nas recle .c,r;
ulation unparalleled in the history of simi
lar udertakiags. It owes its uccess to the
rt that ii nreseats more reading matter,
of a better quality, in a more elegant style,
and at a cheaper rate than any other publi
cation ; and that its literary and news-con
tents have met the wants of the greatenass
