THE SUBSCRIBER returns hi sincere thanks to
(ho c it i tens of Hannibal and vicinity, "Jr!ic.
. .ary to Iht LatHil," for theit liberal patronage, and
hopes to merit a continuation of the tame.
Ihe proprietor will conduct bii business on the un
ftlan and principle! that like eitabliibmenta in Ne
York and .Boston are now conducted. He will adber
triclly to the "ONE PRICE SYSTEM." ' Every
article will be marked at the very " Loweit Casta
Price," and no variation will be made, unless for
damage. No misrepresentation or undue urging will
beallowed. It is my rJeteimination to do a straight
forward and honorable business, and free from the
trick so common to tht trade, and to make any estab
lishment an attractive and desirable retort to purchas
ers, for anything under the name of Dry Goods.

sources at their command, to render it the
most attractive and most useful Magazine
for popular reading in the world j and the
citent to which their efforts have been
successful is indicated by the fact, that it
has attained a greater circulation than any
similar periodical ever Usued.
Special efforts wil' be made to render it
still morn interesting and valuable during
the coming year. In addition to the usual
ample and choice selections of Foreign and
Domestic Literature, an increased amount
of Original Matter, by the ablest American
Writers, will be hereatter lurnisiied. Ihe
number of Pictorial Embellishments will
be increased ; still greater variety will be
given to its literary contents ; its Editorial
and Miscellaneous departments will be still
fatther enlarged; and no labor or expense

the 'Caloric' age, which is just now being
ushered in. Of the Knickerbocker Maga
zine, edited by Lewis Gaylord Clark, it is
unnecessary to speak. For twenty years
it has been the most genial, humorous, and
8j)icy 'monthly' in the world; and the pres
ent volume will be better than any which
preceded it. The Home Journal, edited by
Geo. P. Morris and N. P. Willis, is well
known as the best family newspaper in
America; and the Musical World and Times,
edited by Richard Storrs Willi?, with Low

tings, Wm. P. Bradbury, Geo. F.Iloot, and
other musical writers contributing; and
which gives, among other things, over $25
worth of music and a full course of ins true

musical journal ever published. These
three publications will post a family up in
regard to everything worth knowing : Art,

fancy, sentiment; the newest fashions and
other attractions for ladies; choice new mu
