to prevent thereby the leaving of any goods orj

like this all, the various articles to which premiums
will be granted. However comprehensive
we might inake any enumaialcd li?t there would
still he many articles of merit olfered wb ch would
not be embraced in it, mid. yet richly deserving
premiums,lest therefore the; niiourccmcnt of premiums
for particular articles might beco * trued by
sorr.ointo an exclusion oi all articles unannounced, j
the Committee requests the people generally to j
observe, t hat it is in'ended to give the action of;
the Association the. very widest scope, embracing ;
svery thing that i? ingenious or useful in business j
or art. All then, wiih whatever they have, for sale I
or exhibition, are invited to copic. The only
regulation further necoesary on this point perhaps
is, that, on nil articles of the highest merit in tin

pleinents, and valuable improvements or inventions

worth $ HI will be given ; oil the second best arti- i

sence and contributions of many of our billow |
citizens < f Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee alld Ho- I

ITNUKR thi.i title will be published, during the
1 year 1850, twenty-four J*ortraits and Biographi- '
eal Sketches of American citizens who have become ;
illustrious in the service of the country. Every portion
of the work yvitl receive the most careful uttcn- i
lion, and nothing will be spared to render it a. worthy I
nad enduring monument to the great men nt tlie He- j
public.
Air. Brady ha- been many years engaged, at great I
expense,in collecting Portraits for a National Gallery,
and tlmsc which are being engraved for this 1
work are believed to be supeiior to any tlut have <
ever been taken. In the accomplishment of this great !
object he bus experienced the utmost Coiirte-y and 1
encouragement from distinguished men. Mr. Brady's
reputation has been too long established to need any :
rccommcnda'iun. His daguerreotypes are in tie
highest sense the works ot art, glowing with tLcsoul i
of the living countenance. (
The drawings and engravings of D'Aviguon have t
been pronounced by Europeans of taste to be fully
rijual, and in some respects superior to those of the ! t
best artists of 1-ondon and Paris; and every im- t
pressiou in this Gallery will be taken under his im- I
mediate supervision The typography will bo executed
as carefully and in as superb a stvlc as the engravings
themselves. The entire work . will be on <
i he tinest imperial lolio paper, 16 by 23 inches, made
expressly for this purpose. 1

names of those men only are admitted) wiiose talents
and public services have won for them an honorable (
fame throughou* the nation. Each of the jrreat departments
of life will have its representatives. Art 1
and literature are universal in thejr spirit, and the
Gallery is intended to be a worthy and enduring; roon- I
umept to the great men of the Kepuhlic w hos<achiavements
and fame constitute tlie chief glory of I
he nation. We ho)>e that every lover of Art, and
friend of our glorious Union, will respond to our appeal
for cncourag' ment and aid in so commend-We an C
undertaking, tliat its publication miV make an era in

illustrious men of the Union together, consolidate it

, A? no work of this kind lias appeared in America,
ind the prices they sustain in Europe would place it 1
beyond the reach of most of our citizens, the publishsrs
have resolved to merit a large circulation, bv

That American iudmitry and arts may he enabled to

such a central authority.

Extract from the Circular qf the Royal Commissioners.
" The Commissioners have felt that it would be
desirable, as far tut possible, to prevent any persona
from sending hither articles which onunot be
admitted, rather than to reject the art idea after
their arrival ii? London. Tliey feel also that the
delicate and responsible task of deciding on the
admission or rejection of articles destined for exhibition
by foreign contributors ought not to be imposed
upon any FngJisb tribunal, but should be
referred to one Jiving ;he confidence pf the exhibitors
theirv.ves, and standing* entirely free from
possibl1- .iputations of national partiality. They
nrcr ngly propose to admit to exhibition such
foreign articles only as may be forwarded to them
by the Central Authority (whatever may be its
nuturel in each country. They will communicate
to sncli Central Authority the ~e
J .......v..VI 0|jncc
which can be allowed to the productions of the
cnuutry for which it ucto, and will also slate Die
conditions and limitations which may from lime
to time l?e decided on with respect to the admission
of articles. AH articles forwarded hy such Central
Authority will then be admitted, provided they
do not require a greater aggregate amount of
&|Ktce than that assigned to the productions of the
country fVom which they come; and, provided,
also, that they do not violute the conditions tuxl
limitations of which due notice shall have been
given. It will rest with the Central Authority in
each country to decide upon the iperit* of the
several articles presented for exhibition, and to
tnjce care! that those which ore sent are such as
fuirly represent the industry of their fellow-countrymen.
" Her Majesty's Commissioners will consider
that td be the Central Authority in each case which
is stated to be so by the Government of its country.
Having once been put in communication with n
Central Authority in any country, they must decline,
absolutely and entirely, any communication
with private and unauthorized ^individuals and,
should any such be addressed to them, (hey can
only refer to a central body. This decision is
essentially necessary, in order to prevent confYnnnn.
" No articles of foreign manufacture, to whomsoever
they may belong, or wheresoever they may
lie, can be admitted for exhibition unless they
cotne with the sanction of the Centra] Authority
of the country of which they are the produce.
The Commissioners do not insist upon such articles
being in all cases actually forwarded hy the
Central Authority, though they consider that this
would generally he the most satisfactory arrangement
; but it is indispensable that the sanction of
such authority should in all cases he expressly
given, and that it be; held responsible for the fitness
of such articles for exhibition, and for not
authorizing the exhibition of a greater quantify
than can he accommodated in the space assigned
to the productions of the country in question."
A full discussion was. then had of the subject
thus laid.before the committee, nnd, on motion of
the Hon, AV. TV. Seaton, it was?
ft tsolred, That the Commit ice of five first charged
with this subject by the Institute (substituting
Mr, Kennedy for Mr. Greeuough, who is absent)

THE THIRD ANNUAL VOLUME

SOUTHKRX LITLKARY GAZETTE,
Was commenced on Saturday, the 4th of Mav,
1850, under its original name?instead Of Wclutri*'
Weekly Gatetle?as more significant o( its peculiar
character, it being the only weekly organ or Literature
in the enlirc.South! It is
Cfrcally Enlarged and Improved,
Containing weekly Thirty-two Columns ot

will be spared to make it
.1 Choice family J>\iogpttper,
"as cheap an tlie cheapest, and as pood as the
best!" Utterly discarding the notion that a
Southern journal cannot compete with.thq Northern
weekbes, in cheapness apd interest,.
The Southern Littrarsj (loirtie
rivals the beat of them in all the characteristics ot
a twly vnhtable fireside Journul. Its aim is the
diffusion of cultivate*] ana rvtined taste throughout
the cOm til unity?and it embraces in its ample
folds ever species of intelligence thut can tend to
this result. 1 i. >
Original Ccnlribitdons,
from many of the ablest writers in the South,
chiefly occupy its columns, but not to the exclusion
of chowe nuseenmiy, selected from the best
American ami European sources.
The tone of the "Gazette" is independent >m
criticism and in the discussion of evecy legitimate
topic, but it is strictly > '
Neutral in J'olities and Religion !
Its columns are occasionally embellished with
Southern Portraits and landscapes,
engraved expvessly for the work, and accompanied
by hiogrnphicnl and topogrnphicnl sketches.
- Its General Information
is copious, but carefully condensed from the
leading journals of all parts of the world.
Notwithstanding the great increase in the size
and attractions ofthepa]>er, it is still published at
