The times, in deed, are gloomy ; but, widely as our commercial distress is extended, the Mirror has shot the roots which nourish it at ill wider, and the elements of ita prosperity being now derived from every section of our extended country, it shares in the goon fortune of those most remote, while sympathuing with the troubles of those which are near. It i) owing to this general circulation that wc are enabled in times like these not merely to sustain the wonted style of our publication, but to present new claims upon that patriotic regard which has ncvei lieen withheld from our untiring exertions to make the New York Mirror the first publication of the kind in the world. Nor do we fear to be thought presuming in aiming at so high a mark. Let those who would carp at the expression but look back to the commencement of our undertaking ; to the first of the fourteen volumes which, year after year, have been pro duced with an increase of toil and expense that has ever kept in advance of the support we have received, liberal undoubtedly as that support has been. Let them weigh the improvements upon it* predecessor in each successive volume, and we fearlessly assert that they cannot with hold their approval from our past laliors, nor deny the rieh promise with which our publication is still rife. The Literary Arrangements for the coming year must ( secure a great improvement in tUui department of the Mirror ; fur while our journal Mill continue to be mainly supported by Mr. Morria, Mr. Willi*, and Mr. Fay, new engagements will have been made with ('apt Marryatt, and several other writer* of eatabli*h?d reputation on both aide* of the Atlantic, to give ua the aid of their talenta ; and enrol thaiuaelvoa with those who, like Mr Cot, have lieuoiua aiiuoat identified with our columns. These in creased resources inuat necessarily give a greater diver atty to tlie paper; while, in order to promote that unity of purpose which ia ao dcsiiwblo in auch a journal, and which can only l>e seeuied by ila having one acting head, the Mirror has been placed under the immediate editorial charge of a ainiile person ; ami the proprietor ia happy to announce thai he ha a made a permanent arrangement * ith Mr. C. F. Hoffman, who haa lor the laat twfononlha had charge of thia department. The Steel Engravings now in the courae of preparation for the coining year, are auch aa we shall be proud to lay before our countrymen. They commemorate the romantic scenery and the illuatrioua ch.iractera of our land. The landing of Jamestown, painted by Chapman, w ill appear among tha hiatorical landaeupea; and our aeriea of ror traita, which began with Halleck, will be followed up by thoae of Bryant. Sprague, (hooper, Irving, and Verplanck, making, when finished, a most valuable portrait gallery of Americana of literary celebrity, whilo they illustrate the geniua of Stewart, luman, Weir, and other native artiata", of w hom our country ia juatly proud. The Wood Engravings. to which we have ever paid great attention, aa tho branch of art to which they lielong ia one which our countrymen are rapidly carrying lo a high degree of perfection, will aaaume new iui[H>rtaucc in thi* volume, as all will acknowledge who liehold the su perb specimen of Chapman'a geniua and Adama' skill in an early number. The Musical Department for the coming year will lie enriched with many original contribution by Horn and Huaaell, alternated with choice morceaux from rare Eu ropean collections, and occasional selection* from new and popular com|M>?itiona, imported expressly for the Mir ror, and newly arranged in ihia country. The piecea thus given with every number of the Mirror, although they do not occupy one-aixteenth of the work, could not be pur chaaed in any other shape except at a coat far greater than that of our whole annual subscription! We have thus, aa is our usual wont, glanced at the plan of the Mirror?a plan which embrace* ao many subjects w ithin the range of the'Belles Lettrea and the Fine Arts, that it would lie tedious to enumerate them here; and we woujd rather apjieal to the testimonials of approval which our journal has received froin the discriminating and the tasteful on both aideaof the Atlantic, than add any thing here in furtherance of the claim which the New York Mirror haa upon the support of the American public. Conditions.?The Mirror is published every Saturday, at the corner of Nassau and Ann streets, New York. It is elegantly printed in the extra super royal octavo form, on beautiful paper, with brevier, minion, and nonpareil tyne. It is embellished, once every three months, with a splendid auperroyal (piarto engraving, and every< week with u popular piece of music, arranged for the piano forte, Iftirp, guitar, <Xtc. For each volume an exquisitely engraved vignette, title page, (painted by Weir and en graved by Durand,) and a copious imlcx, arc furnished. I ho terms are Five Dollars per annum, payable, in all ease*, in advance. It is forwarded hy the earliest mails to suliscrilwrs residing out of the city of New York. Communications, post paid, inuat be addreascd to tho edi tors. No subscriptions received for a less period than one year. New subscribers may be supplied from the beginning of the present volume. Postmasters allowed twenty per cent, on all money remitted. jy3l TENTH VOLUME OF THE KNICKERBOCKER MAGAZINE. ON the first of July, 1837, commenced the tenth volume of the Knickerbocker, or New York Monthly Msga zine. Tho publishers, mindful of the favor with which their efforts have lieen received at the hands of the public, would embrace the recurrence of a new starting point, as a fit occasion to " look backward and forward" at the paSt and prospective character and course of their periodical. Within tho brief space oi a littlo more than two vears and a half, the number of copies issued of the Knickeibocker has been increased from less than Jive hundred to more than four thousand, without other aids than the acknow ledged merits of the work?acknowledged, not more expli citly bv this unprecedented success, than by upward of three thousand highly favorable notices of the Magazine, which, at different times, have appeared in the various journals of the Uuitcd States, embracing those of the first and most discriminating cli.*s in everv section of tho Union. Df many hundreds wlio desired specimen num bers, and to whom they have been sent for examination, previous to subscribing, not one but has found the work worthy of immediate subscription. A correct inference in regard to the interest or quality of the matter furnished by the nublishers, may lie gathered from the foregoing facts. In relation to the quantity given, it need only lie said, that it has always exceeded tho maximum promised, and in the numliers for the last year, by more than four fomtlred pages. Of the clearness and beauty of the typo graphical execution and material of the Knickorliocker, and the character of its embellishments?which, although not expected hy its readers, nor promised by its proprie tors, have nevertheless been given?it is not deemed ne cessary to speak. They will challenge comparison, it is believed, with any similar periodical, at home or abroad. It has been observed, that the constant aim of the edi tors, in the management of the Knickerbocker, has been to make the work entertaining and agreeable, as well as solid and useful. It is jierhaps ow ing to the predominance of these first named characteristics, that it has liecome so widely hnown to the public, in addition to several well known and popular series of numbers?such as tho "Odds and Ends of a Penny-a-Lincr," " Ollapodiana," the " Pal myra Letters," " An Actor's Alloquy," " Leaves from the Blank Book of a Country Schoolmaster," " Wilson Con worth,"'" Life in Florida," " Loaferiana," " Tho Eclec tic," " Passages from the Common-place Book of a Sep tuagenarian," " Notes from Journals of Travels in Ameri ca, and in various Foreign Countries," "The Fidget Pa per*," die.?liberal space has been devoted to interesting l'ales, illustrating American society, manners, the times, 6tc., embracing, besides, stories of the sea, and of pathos and humor, u[a>n a great variety of subjects, together with biographies, legends, and essays, upon numerous nnd va ried themes, interspersed with frequent articles of poetry, of such a description as to secure for the Magazine, in this department, a gratifying pre-eminence and celebrity. But neither the scientific nor the learned, the solid nor the useful, has lieen omitted, or lightly regarded. Origi nal articles, from distinguished writers, (which have at traded much attention in this country, and several of which have been copied and lauded abroad,) have appear ed in the recent numbers of the work, ujHin the following subjects : Past and Present State of American Literature; South American Antiquities ; Inland Navigation ; Ueology and Revealed Religion; Insanity and Monomania; Liberty versus Literature and the Fino Arts; Early History of the Country; Connexion of the Physical Sciences; At mospheric Electrjcity, a New Theory of Magnetism, and Molecular Attraction; American Female Character; Pulmonaiy Consumption ; Pulpit Eloquence ; The Pros pects and Duties of tho Age ; Health of Europe and America; Literary Protection and International Copy Right; Poetry of tho Inspired Writings; Chinese Na tions and Languages; Chemistry (Lalxiratory of Nuture) The Past, the Present, and the Future; Our Country, with Comments on its Parties, I^aws, Public Schools, and Sketches of American Society, Men, Education, Manners and Scenery ; Philosophy of the Rosierueians ; Intellectual Philosophy, Philology, Astronomy, Animal and Vegetable Physiology, Astrology, Botany, Mineralo gy, and Phrenology ; Progress of the Age, and of Modern Liberty; Christianity in France j American Organic Remains ; Historical Recollections, the Nature of Co mets ; Discussion on Scriptural Miracles; Sectional Dis tinctions of the Union ; Peace Societies ; Periodicity of Diseases; Essays on Music, Fine Writing, &c.; toge ther with many articles of a kindred description, which it would exceed the limits of this advertisement to enume rate in detail. To tho foregoing particulars, the publishers would on ly add, that at no period since the work passed into their hands, have its literary capabilities and prospects been so amide and auspicious as at present; and that not only will tho same exertions lie continued, which have secured to their subscription list an unexampled increase, but their claims upon the public favor will Vie enhanced by every means which increasing endeavors, enlarged facilities, and the most liberal expenditure, can command. Back numbers have been re-printed to supply Volume Nine, and five thousand copies of Volume Ten will bo printed, to meet the demands of new subscribers. A few brief notices of the Knickerbocker, from well known journals are subjoinrd : " The progress of the Knickerbocker is still onward It is conducted w ith decided ability, is copious and varied in its contents, and is printed in a superior style. At this season we have little space for literary extracts,and Cannot, therefore, enable those of our readers who may not see thts Magazine, to judge of its merits, otherw ise than upon our assurance that they are of a high order."?AVw I or* American. " We have found in the Knickerbocker so much to ad mire and so little to condemn, that we can hardly trust ourselves to sneak of it from first impressions, as we could not do so without lieing suspected of extravagant praise." it is not surpassed by aov of its contemporaries at home . or abroad." " It sustain* high ground in all the requisites of a Magazine, and we are pleased to sec that its merits are appreciated abroad as well as at home ? Alh\ Argun. " This monthly periodical is now so well known that it hardly needs commendation, having established for itself a character nmong the ablest and most entertaining publi cations in the land."? .V. I'.

They would do credit to any country or to any state of civilization to which hu manity has yet arrived."?Marryatt's Ismrinn Metropolitan Maqnzinr. " Wo hope it will not be inferred, from our omission to notice the several numbers of the Knickeibocker as they have appeared, that we have there lost sight of its charac ter and increasing excellence. It has become decidedly one of the liest Macazines in America. The proprietors have succeeded in procuring for its pages the first talent of this country, as well as valuable aid from distinguished foreign sources."?j\'ew York Mirror.

TIIE AMERICAN ANTHOLOGY; A Magazine of Poetry, BUtgraphy, and Criticism, to be pub tithed Monthly, with eplendid illustration* on Steel WHILE nearly every country of the old world can boast of its collcrted laxly of national Poetry, on whioh the seal of a tide's favorable judgment has la-en set, ami which exhibits to foreign nations in the most striking light the progreaa of civilisation and literary se fuieiuenl among its inhabitants ; while Engliuid, especial ly, proudly displays to the world a corpus potior*?? the lustre of whoso immortal wreath has shed u brighter Kjory upon her name than the moat splendid triumphs which her statesmen und her soldiery have achieved, our own country seems destitute of poetic honors Appears, we say, for although no full collection of the chef <f isuvres ot our wntera lias been mode, yet there exist, and are occa sionally to be met with productions of American poet. which wilPbear comparison with the noblest and most polished efforts of European genius, and winch Claim lor America as high a rank in the scale of literary elevation as is now ceded to older and in some respects more la vored lands. ... ? . . ..... Impressed with the conwctnei* of this judgment we propose to issue a monthly magazine which "hall contain ill a perfect unmullisted form, the most meritorious und beautiful effusiona of the poets of America, of the past and present time, with such introductory, critical, and biographic notices as shall be necessary to a correct under standing of the works presented to the reader, and to iidd interestto the publication. Those who imagine that there exists a dearth of materials for such an undertaking, who believe that the Aonian Maids have confined their richest favors to our transatlantic brethren to the exclu sion of native genius, will be surprised to learn that we are nlready in possession of more than two hundred vol umes of the production of American Imrds, from aliout the year 1630 tp the present day. Nor is it from these sources alone that materials may be drawn. There are but few writera in our country who puraue authorship ss ai voca tion, and whose works have been published iu a collected form. Our poeta( especially, have generally written for particular occasions, with the remembrance of which their productions have gone to rest, or their effusions have liccn carelessly inserted in periodicals of "light merit anil, limited circulation, where they were unlikely to attract notice to themselves, or draw attention to their authors The grasa of the field or flowers of the wilderness arc growing over tlie ashca of many of the highly gifted *f"?' through the w ild And romantic regions of our republic, have scattered poetry in "ingots bright from the mint of Kcnius" and glowing with the impress of beauty anu the spirit of truth, in quantities sufficient, were it known and appreciated as it would l? in other countries, to secure to thcin an honorable reputation throughout tho world.? Such were Harney, author of' Cryatalina and the 1"ever Dream,'Sands, author of ? Yamoyden ; Wilcox, author of the ' Age of Benevolence;' Robinson, author of lhe Savage Little, the sweet and tender poet of Christian feeling, the lamented Brainard, and many beside, whose writings arc almoat unknc vn, save by their kindred asso ciates and friends.' . ....... r With the names of those poets who within the last few years have extended the reputation of American lite rature beyond the Atlantic, Bryant, Dana, 1 ercival, Sprague, Sigourncy, WhitUcr, Willis, <Vc. the public arc familiar; and we can assure them that there exists, though long forgotten and unknown, a mine of noetic wealtn, rich, varied and extensive, which will amply repay the la bor of exploring it, and add undying lustre to the crown which encircles the brow of American genius. In the pub lieation now proposed we shall rescue from the oblivion to which they have long been consigned, and embalm in a bright and imperishable form the numberless 4 gems ol purest ray/ witn which our researches into the literary an tiquitics of our country have endowed us ; and we arc con fident that every lover of his native land will regard our enterprise as patriotic and deserving the support of the citizens of the United States, as tending to elevate the character of thnt country in the scale of nations, and as sert its claims to the station to which its children entitles it With thia conviction we ask the patronage of the com munity to aid us in our undertaking, conscious that we are meriting its support by exhibiting to the world a proud evidence that Amcrica, in the giant strength ?r her Hercu lean childhood, is destined ere long to cope in the arena of literature with those lands which for centuries have boast ed their civilisation and refinement, and justly exulted in their triumphs of their cherished sons in the noblest field which heaven has opened to the human intellect. The American Antholqov will contain complete works of a portion of the following?the most popular of our jKietic writera?and of the others, the best poems, and such as are least generally known : Adams, John Quincy Gould, Hannah r.

THE Subscribers to the " Rkoistkr" are respectfully informed, that after the first day of September next It will be published IN THE CITY OF WASHINGTON. In transferring this work to the seat of the National Wo vermnont, we are not only complying with the wishes ol a large number of distinguished men of l>oth partiea, but carrying into effect a design long entertained by its found er, and obeying our own convictions of the advantages which must result to its numerous and intelligent patrons. For we will there have additional facilities lor procuring those facts and documents which it is one of the objects of the " Register" to present to its readers, and which have heretofore been obtained at the sacrifice of much time and labor. In addition to these facilities, the " Register has lie come so identified with our history, that it seems due to its character that it should avail itself of every advantage that will add to its national reputation and usefulness, and Washington City is necessarily the point at which, the most valuable and authentic intelligence of general in terest is concentrated, thence to be circulated among the ' tUc*change of location will not, however, produce any change in the original character or plan of the work, which will lie faithfully adhered to under all circumstances, and especially arc wo determined that it shall not partake of a sectional or partisan character, but present a fair and honest record, to which all parties in all quarters of the country, desirous of ascertaining the truth, may refer with confidence. In making this avowal we are not ignorant how difficult it is to remove prejudices frotn our own mind, ami to satisfy that intolerance which only sees the truth in its own decisions ; but so far as the fallibility of human judgment will enable us to do justice, it shall l?c done . for we have had that kind of experience in editorial duties which has thoroughly disgusted us with the miserable shifts to which partisans resort, even if our convictions of duty would permit a departure from strict neutrality. Yet wo do not intend to surrender the naht to speak of principles with our usual freedom, or to defend what we deem to be the true policy of tho country ; but in so doing, we will not be influenced by special interests or geogra phical linos, and properly respect the opinions of others ; for we, too, believe that "truth is a victor without vio lence," aud that the freedom of disenssion and the rurbt "f decision are among the most estimable privileges of an intelligent People. . The period tor the contemplated removal is also pecu liarly auspicious, for with the commencement of the extra session of Congress we wiU commr-ice the publication of a new volume; and wo have already made arrangements to lav before our readers, in sufficient detail, every event which may transpire in that body, and to insert all docu ments, speeches, &c. of interest. It I* also our intention to furnish to our su!iacril>ors, gratuitously, at the termina tion of each session, a supplement containing^ all the laws passed I her eat, of general interest, with ?n analytical index. \Ve will thus render the " Register" still more valuable as a Congressional record for popular reference: for the reader w ill then not only lie ennoled to trace the progress of the laws, but will be furnished with them as enacted. Heretofore their circulation has been confined to one or two newspapers in each State, or limited to copies [Siih lisll< d by th? order of the government for the use of its ?n fleers, ajiil at ? coat, per volume, tliat equals, if it dais not exceed, the pi ice of our annual subscription. These improvements w our plan will involve ? large expenditure of money, and are hardly warranted by the general depression which prevaiia in every branch of pro ductive industry, but we are induced to believe, from the ateady support the " Register" haa received during the past moat embarrassing year, that there is an increasing deaire among the people for information,and that thev are resolved to under.land tk* actual amdttion of public affair*. V> 1th such a disposition on the part of the Public, we can not doubt but that our enterprise will be duly rewarded ? and we earnestly aolicit the co-operation of Mr friends in aid of our effort* to extend our subscription list. , We are deeply sensible of the obligations we owe theio for pout favors, and are especially grateful for the indulgence which haa been extended to ua in the dudisrge of our arduous duties, which have been prosecuted under many disad vantages. Their encouragement haa excited us to perse vere, and to cherish the hope that " Nilea' Register*' muy still maintain the high reputation it has acquired in all quartets of the United Stalca and in Europe. It is now admitted to lie the moat valuable depository of facta and events extant, and is daily quoted by all parlies as an au thority that will not be disputed. 1 his is, indeed, an en viable reputation, and we are determined it shall not be lost. The terms of the ? Register" are fivt dollar, per annum, payable m advancr. All left* rs must fie post-paid, but re niiltaiices may lie made at our risk, addressed, until the "f September, to us at lialtimore, and ufterthul peri od to VVaihington City.

ON the 1st of Octoukk, IKJ7, will lie published at Washington, District of Columbia, and delivered simultaneously in the principal cities of the United States, a new Monthly Magaxinc, under the above title, devoted to the principles of the Democratic party. It has long been apparent to many of the reflecting mem bers ol the Democratic party of the United States, that a periodical lor the advocacy and diffusion of their political principles, similar to those in .such nctive and influential operation in England, ia a desideratum of the highest im portance to supply?a periodical which should unite with the attractions of a sound and vigorous literature, a poli tical character capable of giving efficient support to the doctrines and measures of that party, now maintained by a large majority of the People. Discussing the great questions of polity before the country, expounding and advocating the Democratic doctrine through the most able pens that that party can furnish, in articles of greater length, more condensed force, more elaborate research and more elevated tone than is pouible for the newspaper press, a Magazine of this character becomes an instru ment of inappreciable value for the enlightenment and formation of public opinion, and for the support of the J principles which it advocates. By these means, by thus I explaining and defending the measures of the Democratic party, and by always furnishing to the public a clear and powerful commentary upon those complex questions of policy which so frequently distract the country, and uiKin which, imperfectly understood as they often are by friends, nnd misrepresented and distorted :is they never fail to bo by political opponents.it is of the utmost impor tance that the public should be fully and rightly informed, it is hoped that the periodical in question may be made to ?exert a beneficial, rational, and lasting influence on the public mind. Other considerations, which cannot be two highly api.re ciated, will render the establishment and success of the proposed Alugazine of very great importance In the mighty struggle of antagonist principles which is now going on in society, the Democratic party of the Uni ted states stands committed to the world as the deposito P".a," ?en>pl*r of those cardinal doctrines of political faith with which the came of the People in every age and country is identified. Chiefly from the want of a con venient means of concentrating tlic intellectual energies of its disciples, this party has hitherto been almost wholly unrepresented in the republic of letters, while the views, and policy of its opposing creeds are daily advocated by learning nio*t commanding efforts of genius and In the United States Magazine the attempt will be made to remove this reproach. The present is the time peculiarly appropriate for the commencement of such an undertaking, the Democratic ! y ?' th? ''"'on. sfter a conflict which tested to the ut termost its stability and its principles, have succeeded in retaining jiossesaion of the executive administration of the country In the consequent comparative repose from political strife, the period is auspicious for organizing mid calling to its aid anew and powerful ally of this charac tei\ interfering with none and co-operating with all. Co-ordinate with this main design of The United States Maeazine, no care nor cost will be spared to render it, in a literary point of View , honorable to the country, and fit v,^r ? "?1> 'is European competitors. V iewing the English language as the noble heritage and ?n,iTt>ni. ng ?olwh? sl'euk lhe o (Milton and hakspeare, it will be the uniform object of its con ductors to present only the finest productions in the vari ous branches of literature that can be procured, and to diffuse the benefit of correct models of taste and worthy execution. 3 In this department lhe exclusiveness of party, which is w,1?PK "! fK>Il!Urttl department of such a work, will have no place. Here we all stand on a neutral ground of couality and reciprocity, where those universal alone 1hT ^ arC 8,1 aIikc ""bjcct, will , alone be recognized as the common law.

C., March 4. 1837. PROSPECTUS TO THE AM Kill CAN MONTHLY MAG A/INK, rot 1H37. KtVE DOLLARS PER YEAR. ON the first of January was puhluritrd the first number of the ninth volume of the American Monthly Magazii.1. This will commence the second year of " the New Serfs of the American Monthly.** One year has passed sinri, by the union of the New England Magazine with this well ealobliahed periodical, the resources of a publication which had previously alstorbed those of the American Monthly Review anil of the United States Magazine, were all concentrated in the American Monthly Maea zinc ; giving at oncc so broad a basis to the work an in stomp its national character and ensure ita permanent The uumlier of pages, which have each month exceed) .1 one hundred, was at the aaine time increased, to make room for an additional supply of original matter ; and each number of the work throughout the year has been orna mented with an engraving, executed by the first artist* in the country. How for the literary contents of the Maga zine have kept pace with these secondary improvement'', the public are the best judges. The aim of the proprietor., has been from the first to establish a periodical which should have a tone and character of its own ; and which, while rendered sufficiently amusing to ensure its eircu:.i tion, should ever keen for its main ohiect the promotion .if good taste, and aounil, vigorous and fearless thinking. up on whatever subject it undertook to discuss ; which, in .1 word, should make its way into public favor, and establish its claims to consideration, rather by what should ! < found in its pages than by any eclat which the num. s of popular contributors, or the dissemination of laudatory paragraphs, could confer. Nor has the American Monthly had any reason to regret having adopted and followed out the course prescribed to itself from the first. It has in deed lost both contributors and aulwcribers by the tone of some of its papers ; but by the more enlightened who haw judged of the tendency of the work in the aggregate ami not by its occasional difference of opinion withthcmselir*, it has been sustained with spirit and liberality. It tux been enabled to merge from infancy and depeudancc up<m extrinsic circumstances; and the quickening power ol many minds, laboring successively or in unison, has m fused vitality into the creation while shaping it into form, until now it has a living principle of its own It has In come something, it is hoped, which "theworld would not willingly let die," But though the subscription list of the American Monthly has enlarged with the publications of every numlier durin. the last year, it is not.yet sufficiently full to justify tin publishers in carrying into effect their plan of liberally eomiiensating both the regular contributors and every u ri ter that furnishes a casual paper for the week. Nor till literary labor in every department of a periodical is a>l> - quately thu* rewarded, can it fully sustain or merit t!>< character which an occasional article from a well paid popular pen may give. If these views be just, there is no impertinence in ap pealing here to the public to assist in furthering them l.v promoting the prosperity of the American Monthly Mat.i zine. The work which is under the editorial chagre of ('. K Hoofinan and Park Benjamin, Esq. will continue to In Sublished simultaneously on the first of every month, m lew York, bv George Dearborn 6t Co., in Boston by Otis, Broader* & Co., communications received at the Offict, No. 38, Gold Street, New York. PROSPECTUS OF THE SOUTHERN LITERARY MESSENGER, THOMAS W. WHITE, EDITOR AND PR0PR1ET0B. This is a monthly magazine, devoted chiefly to literature, but occasionally finding room for articles that fall within the scope of Science ; and not professing an entire disdain .of tasteful irlectimu, tlioucii its matter lias been, as it will continue to be, in the mam, original. Party politics and controversial theology, as far as pos sible, are jealously oxcluded. They are sometimes so blended w ith discussions in literature or in moral science, otherwise unobjectionable, as to gain admittance for the sake of the more valuable matter to which they adhere but whenever that happens, they arc incidental only ; not primary. They are dross, tolerated only because it can not well be severed from the sterling ore wherewith it is incorporated. Reviews and Critical Notices occupy their due spare in the work; and it is the editor's aim that they should have a threefold tendency?to convey in a condense d form, such valuable truths or interesting incidents as are embodied in the works reviewed,?to direct the reader's attention to books that deserve to be read,?and to warn him against wasting time and money upon that larpe num ber, which merit only to lie burned. In this age of publt cations, that by their variety and multitude distract and overwhelm every tindiscnminating student, impartial criticism, governed by the views just mentioned, is one of the most inestimable and indispensable of auxiliaries, to him who does wish to discriminate. Esssys and Tales, having in view utility or amusement, or both,?Historical Sketches,?and Reminiscences o| events too ininnte for history, yet elucidating it, and height ening its interest,?may be regarded as forming the staple of the work. And of indigenous poetry, enough is pub lished?sometimes of no mean strain?to manifest and to cultivate the growing poetical taste and talents of our country. The limes appear, for several reasons, to demand such a work?and not one alone, but many. The public inind is feverish and irritated still, from recent political strifes The soft, assuasive influence of literature is needed, to allay that fever, and soothe that irritation. Vice and folly are rioting abroad : They should be driven by indignant rebuke, or lashed by ridicule, into their fitting haunts. Ignorance -lords it over an immense proportion of our people. Every spring should be set in motion, to arouse the enlightened, and to increase their numlier; so that the great enemy of popular government may no longer brood, like n portentous cloud, over the destinies of our country And to accomplish all these ends, what more powi rl"l agent can be employed than a periodical, on the plan of the Messenger; if that plan be but carried out in practice The South, peculiarly, requires such an agent. In all the Union, south of Washington, there are but two literary periodicals ! Northward of that city, there are probably :it least twenty-five or thirty ! Is this contrast justified b\ the wealth, the leisure, tho native talent, or the actunl literary taste of the Southern people, compared with those of the Northern ? No: for in wealth, talents, and taste, wo may justly claim at least an equality with our bn ? thren; and a domestic institution exclusively our own, beyond alldoobl affords us, if wo choose, twice the leisure for reading and writing, which they enioy. It was from a deep sense of this local want, that the word Southern was engrafted on the name of this periodical; und not with any design to nourish local tire judices, or to advocate supposed local interests. Far from any such thought, it ia the editor's fervent wish to see the North and South hound endearingly together forever, in the silken bands of mutual kindness and affection Fin from meditating hostility to tho North, lie has already drawn, and lie hopes hereafter to draw, much ofhischoici ?t matter thenc!o ; ana happy indeed will he deem himsi If, should his p^iges, by making each region know the oiliei better, contribute in any essential degree to dispel the lowering clouds that now threaten the peace of t*>th, and to brighten and strengthen the sacred ties of fraleunl love. The Southern Literary Messenger has now reached tin fifth No. of ita third volume. How far it has acted out 111 ideas here uttered, it is not for the editor to say. lielievcs, however, that it falls not further ahort of them than human weakness usually makea practice fall short "I theory. The Messenger is issued monthly. Each number of the work contains 64 large super-royal paves, printed in tl>'' very handsomest manner, on new type, and 011 p?|* r equal at least to that on which any oilier periodical is printed in our country. No aiiliecription will lie received for leas than a volume, and must commence with the current one. The price is 9S per volume, which must lie paid in all cases at the tin ? of subscribing. This is particularly adverted to now to avoid misapprehension, or future mifttindenrtandim' as no order will hereaflerlte attended to unless accoinpsim I with the price of suliscription. The |M>*tagc on the Messenger is six cents on any ?m gle No. for all distances under 100miles?over 100 mil'"i ten cents.
