The Baltimore Infirmary, long and favorably known as an excellent school of practice, is connected with the Me dical Department, and furnishes every das* of disease for the practical elucidation of the principles taught, by the Professors of the Practice of Medicine and of Surgery? who, besides their regular lectures, will impart Clinical instruction, nt the Infirmary, at stated periods, in each week during the Session. The Chemical and Philosophical Apparatus of this University, is of great extent and value, much of it having been selected in Europe, by the late distinguished Pro fessor De Butts. And to a Laboratory, provided with every thing necessary for a Course of Chemical instruc tion, are united the numerous and varied articles required to illustrate the lectures on Pharmacy and Materia Me dica.

R K M IRROR: \ POPULAR and highly esteemed Journal of Elegant i"v Literature ami the Fine Arts,embellished with mag nificent and costly engravings on steel, copper, and wood, and rare, beautiful, and popular Music, arranged for the piano forte, harp, guitar, iVc . ami contniningnrticles from the pens of well known and distinguished writers, upon, every subject that can prove interesting to the general reader, including original Poetry ; Tales and Essays, hu morous and pathetic; critical notices; early and choice selections from the best new publications. Iiotli American and-English: Scientific anil Literary Intelligence; copi ous notices of Foreign Countries, by Correspondents en gaged expressly anil exclusively for this Journal ; stric tures upon the various productions in the Fine Arts that are .presented for the notice and approbation of the public ; claliorate and beautiful specimens of Art, Engravings, Music, etc.; notices of the acted drama, and other amuse ments i translations from the best new works in other languages, French, Gornvin, Italian, Spanish, etc. ; and an infinite variety of miscellaneous reading relating to passing events, remarkable individuals, discoveries and improvement in Science, Art, Mechanics, and a series of original papers, by William Cox, the author of Crayon Sketches, and other popular works, etc. etc. We congratulatelioth our readers and ourselves at the excellent auspices under which we shall commence the next volume of the New York Mirror. The tunes, in deed, are gloomy ; but, widely as our commercial distress is extended, the Mirror has shot the roots which nourish it still wider, and the elements of its pnwperity being no* derived from every section of our extended country, it shares in- the good fortune of those most remote, while sympathising with the troubles of those wiiich are near. It is ow ing to this general circulation that we are enabled in times like tli.-so not merely to sustain the wonted style of our publication, but to present new claims upon that patriotic regard which has nevei been withheld Irom 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 lieen 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 ha* lieen Let them weigh the improvements upon its predecessor in each successive volume, and we fearlessly assert that they cannot with hold their approval from our past laliors, nor deny the rich firomiso with which our publication is stilTrife. The Liferary Arrangements for the coming year must ??cure a great improvement in this department of ths Mirror ; for while our journal will continue to be mainly ?uppoited t.y Mr Morn*, Mr. Willie, *n<i Mr. Fay, new rugugeiuent* will have U rn mailt- with Cupt. Marry all, and *ev< rul other writer* pi c?labli*h< d reputation on IhjiIi *tdt-? of the Atlantic, to give ua the ud ol I lieu talent* ; anil enrol themselves with thoM who, like Mr. Cox, hate twiuiue uliuoat identified with our columns. These ui creum d resource* iniint necessarily give a greater diver aity to the pupcr; while, in order to promote thut unity of purpose which la ao desirable in *uch ajouiual, and which can only lie seemed hy itm having one acting head, the Mirror hu* lieen placed under the luintediale editorial charge of u single person ; and the proprietor i* happy to announce that helm* luude a permuiient arrangement with Mr, C F Hoffman, who h.is for the lust two mouth* had charge of tin* department. The Steel Eugruvjiig* now in the course of preparation for the coming year, are such a* we shall be proud to lay liefore our countrymen. They commemorate the romantic scenery uud the illustrious character* of our land. The landing of Jamesloun, painted hy Chapuiu'i, Mill appear among the historical landscapes; and our series ol Por trait*, which began with llallcck, will be followed up by those of Bryant. Sprague, Cooper, Irving,and Verplauck, inakiinr, when finished, a most valuable |iorlrail gallery of Americans of literary celebrity, while tin y illustrate the genius of Stewart, luman, Weir, and other native artists, of w hum our country i* ju*ily proud. The Wood Engraving*. to which we have ever paid great attention, as the branch of art to win. h they belong is one which our countrymen are rapidly carrying to a high degree of perfection, w ill assume new importance in this volume, as all will acknowledge who behold the su perb specimen of Chapman's genius and Adams' skill in un early nuiiilier. The Musical Department for the coining year will lie I enriched with many original contributions by Horn and UumcII, alternated w ith choice nmroeuux from rare Eu ropean collection*, and occasional selections from new and popular compositions, imported expressly for the Mir ror, and new ly arranged in this country. The pieces thus .given with every miinlier of the Mirror, although they do not occupy out'-sixteenth of the work, could not be pur chased in any other shape except at a cost far greater than that of our whole annual subscription ' We have thus, as is our usual wont, glanced at the plan of the Mirror?a plan which embraces *o many subject* within the range of the Belles Lett re* and the Fine Arts, that it would lie tedious to enumerate them liere; an.I we j would rather appeal to the testimonial* of approval which our journal has received from the discriminating and the tasteful on both aide* of the Atlantic, than add any thing here in furtherance of tha claim which the New York Mirror has upon the support of the American public. Conditio**.?The Mirror is published every Saturday, at the corner of Nassau and Ann streets, New York. It is elegantly printed iu the extra super royal octavo form, on beauliful paper, with brevier, minion, and nonpareil type. It is emliellished, once every three months, with a splendid superroyal quarto engraving, and every week with a popular piece of music, arranged for the piano forte, burp, guitar, Arc. For each volume an exquisitely engraved vignette, title page, (painted by Weir and en graved by Durund,) and a copious index, are furnished. The terms are Five Dollars per annum, payable, in all cases, in advance. It i* forwarded by the earliest mails to subscribers residing out of the city of New York. Communications, post paid, must lie addressed to the edi tors. No subscriptions received for a less period than one year. New subKcrilicrs may be supplied from the beginning of the present volume. Postmasters allowed twenty per cent, on all money remitted. jy31 TENTH VOLUME OF THE KNICKERBOCKER MAGAZINE. ON the first of July, 1^37, commenced the tenth volume of the Knickerbocker, or New York Monthly Maga zine. The publishers, mindful of the favor with which their efforts have been received at the hands of the public, would embrace the recurrence of u new starting point, as a fit occasion to " look backward and forward" at the past and prospective character and course of their periodical. Within the brief space of a little more than two years and a half, the number of copies issued of the Knickerbocker has been increased from less than five hmulred to more than four thousand, without other aids than the acknow ledged merits ol tho work?acknowledged, not more expli citly by 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 United States, embracing those of the first and most discriminating ch.ss in every section of the Union. Of many hundreds who desired specimen num bers, and to whom they have been sent for examination, previous to subscribing, nut one but hns found the work worthy of immediate subscription. A correct inference in regard to the intrrett or t/tuutfy of the matter furnished by the publishers, may be gathered from the foregoing fact*. Ill relation to the quantity given, it need only lie said, that it has always exceeded the maximum promised, and iu the numbers for the last year, by more than fottr hunilreil }>nnrt. Of the clearness anil beauty of the typo graphical execution and material of the Knickcrlmckcr, and the character of its emliellishmcnts?which, although not expected by its readers, nor promised by its proprie tors, have nevertheless been given?it is not deemed ne cctsitry to speak. They will challenge comparison, it is believed, with any similar periodical, at home or abroad. It has Iwen observed, that the constant aim of the edi tors, iu the management ot the Knickcrlsickcr, has been to make the work entertaining and agreeable, as well as solid and useful. It us perhaps Owing to the predominance of these first named characteristics, that it has become so w idely linown to the public. In addition to several well know n and popular series of numbers?such us the " Odds and Knds of a Penny-a-Liner,"." Ollapodiana," the " Pal myra Letters," " An Actor's Alloquy, " Leaves from the Blank Hook of a Country .Schoolmaster," " Wilson Con worth," " Life in Florida," " Loaferiana," " The Eclec tic," "Passages from tho Common-place Hook of a Sep tuagenarian," " Notes from Journals of Travels in Ameri ca, and in various Foreign Countries," "The Fidget Pa pers," tie.?liberal space has been devoted to interesting Pales, illustrating American society, manners, the times. Sic., embracing, besides, stories of tho sea, ami of pathos and humor, upon a great-variety of subjects, together w ith biographies, legends, and essays, upon numerous and if 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 liccn omitted, or lightly regarded. Origi nal articles, from distinguished writers, (which have at tracted 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, upon the following subjects : Past and Present State of American Literature ; South American Antiquities, Inland Navigation; Geology and Revealed Religion; Insanity nnd Monomania; Liberty vrmii Literature and the Fine Arts; Early History (if the Country ; Connexion of tho Physical Sciences ; At mospheric Electricity, a New Theory of Magnetism, and Molecular Attraction; American Female Character; Pulmonary Consumption ; Pulpit Eloquence; The Pros pects and Duties of the Age; Health of Europe and America; Literary Protection anil International Cony Rmht ; Poetry of the Inspired Writings; Chinese Na lions and Languages; Chemistry (Laboratory of Nature) The Past, the Present, and the Future; Our Country, with Comments on its Parties, Laws, Public Schools, and Sketches of American Society, Men, Education, Manners and Scenery; Philosophy of the Rosicricians ; Intellectual Philosophy, Philology, Astronomy, Animal and Vegetable Physiology, Astrology, Botany, Mineralo gy, and Phrenology ; Progress of the Age, and of Modern Liberty; Christianity 111 France ; 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 nn Music, Fine Writing, Ate.; toge ther with many articles of a kindred description, which it would exceed the limits of this advertisement to enume rate in detail. To the 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 lieen so ample and auspicious us at present; and that not only will the same exertions be continued, which have secured to their subscription list an unexampled increase, but their claims upon the public favor will be enhanced by every means which increasing endeavors, enlarged'facilities, and the most liberal expenditure, can command. Rack number* have been re-printed to supply Volume Nine, and five thousand copies of Volume Ten will be printed, to meet the demands of new subscribers. A few brief notices of the Knickerbocker, from well known journals are subjoined : " The progress of the Knickerbocker is still onward It is Conducted with decided ability, is copious and varied iu 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 w ho may not see this Magazine, to judge of its merits, utherw ise than upon our assurance that they are of a high order."?A'ne York Amrrican. " We have found in the Kuickerliocker so much to ad mire and so little to condemn, that we can hardly trust ourselves to speak of it from first impressions, as we could I not do so without lieing suspected of extravagant praise." " It is not surpassed by any of its contemporaries at home or abroad." " It sustains high I in all the requisite* of a Magazine, and we are pleased to *ee that its merits are appreciated abroad as well as at home.?:\U>'y .4 " This monthly periodical is now so well known that it hardly needs commendation, having established lor itself a character among the ablest ami most entertaining publi cations ill the land."?.V. 1'.

A Mltgaiine of Poetry, Uf>nr?pUy, nnel CrUicutn, to be pub lished Monthly, uith splendid illustration* on Steel. WII1LK nearly every country of the old world can boast of It* collected Uidy of national Poetry, on which the neat of a people'* favorable judgment ha* lieen Met, and which exhibit* to foreign nation* in the moat striking liulit the prog reus of civilization and literary le finement among it* inhabitant* ; while England, especial-, ly, proudly display* to the world a corpus part arum the lustre of whose immortal wreath has shed u brighter glory upon her name thttjl the most splendid triumph* w Inch her sluteamen and her soldiery have achieved, our own country seem* destitute of poetic honor*. App"ir?, we aav, l?r although no full colled inn ol the chtf ?I nvvrr, ol our writer* has been made, yet there exist, and are occa sionally to lie met with productionaof American i?>eta which will liear comparison with the noblest and most polished effort* of European nonius, and which elulin tor America as high a rank in the scale of literary elevation as is now ceded to older and iu *oine respect* more fa vored land*. . , Impressed with the correctnes* of this judgment we propone to issue a monthly magazine which slijill contain in a perfect umnutilaled form, the most meritorious and beautiful effusions of Hie [met* of America, of the past an 1 present time, with such introductory, critical, and biographic notice*ns shall be necessary to a correct: uuder, standing of the works presented to the reader, and to add interest to the publication. Those who imagine that there exist* a dearth of material# for such an undertaking, who believe that the Aonuin Maids have confined their richest favora to our transatlantic brethren to the exclu sion of native genius, will be surprised to learn that we are already in possession of more than two hundred vol umes of the production of American bards, from about the year 1030 to the present ?>?*)?. Nor is it from these sources alone that materials may tie drawn. There are but lew writers in our country who pursue authorship as a voca tion, and whose works Imve lieen published in a collected form. Our poets, especially, have generally written for particular occasions, with the remembrance of which their productions have gone to rest, or their effusions have born carelessly inserted in periodicals ol slight merit and limited circulation, where they were unlikely to attract notice to themselves, or draw attention to their authors? The grass of the field or flowers of the wilderness are growing over the ashes of many of the highly gifted who, through the wild and romantic regions of our republic, have scattered poetry in "ingots bright from the mint of genius" and glowing with the impress of l??auty and the spirit of truth, in quantities sufficient, were it known and appreciated as it would l<e in other countries, to secure to them an honorable reputation throughout the world.? Such were Harney, author of' CrysUilina' and the ' * ever Dream,' Sands, author of ' Yanioydon ; W ilcox, author of the ? Age of Benevolence Robinson, author of ' I be Savage ;' Little, the sweet and tender poet of Christian feeling, the lamented Bruinard, and many beside, whose v* ritint:s un* almost unknown, nave l?y their kintlreu asso ciate* and friends. W ith the name* of those poets w ho w ithin the last lew years have extended the reputation of American lite rature liey mil the Atlantic, Bryant, Dana, Percival, Spraicue, Sigourney, VNliitticr* NViliis, dto. tlio puljlie are familiar ; and we can assure them that there exists, though long forgotten and unknown, a mine of poetic wealth, 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 lication now proposed we shall rescue from the oblivion to w hich they have Ions been consigned, and embalm in a bright and imperishable form the numberless ? geins of jiurest ray,' w ith which our researches into the literary an tiquities of our country have endowed us ; and we are con tinent that every lover ol his native land will regard our enterprise as patriotic and deserving the support ol the citizens of the United States, as tending to elevate the character of that country in the scale of nations, anil as sert its claim* to the station to which its children entitles ,t. With this conv iction 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 oroud evidence that America, in the giant strength of her Hercu lean childhood, is destined ere Ions to cope in the arena of literature w ith those lands which lor centuries have last ed their civilization and refinement, and justly exulted in their triumphs of their cherished sons in the nobleat field w hich heaven has opened to the human intellect. The Amkric.vn Antholooy will contain complete works of a portion of the following?the most popular of our poetic w riters?and of the others, the best poems, and such as are least generally know n : Adams, John Qtiincy Gould, Hannah F.

ON the 1st of October, 1N37, will be published at Washington, District of Columbia, and delivered simultaneously in the principal cities of the United States, a new Monthly Magazine, under the above title, devoted to the principles of the Democratic party. It has long be< n apparent to many of the reflecting mem bers of the Democratic party of the United States, that a periodical for the advocacy and diffusion of their political principles, similar to those in such active and influential operation in England, is a desideratum of the highest im portance to supply?a periodical which whould unttc 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 parfv, 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 i Icnjfth, more condensed force, more elaborate research, I and more elevated lone than is possible for the newspaper press, a Magazine of Ibis character becomes an instru ment of inappreciable value for the enlightenment and formation of public opinion, and for the support of the principles which it advocates. By these means, by thus 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 upon which, imperfectly understood as they often are by friends, and misrepresented and distorted a* they never lull to lie by political opponenta.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 twohighly appre ciated, will render the establishment and success ol the proposed Magazine of very great importance Ill 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 us the deposito ry and exemplar of those cardinal doctrines of political faith with which the cautr of the Peojile in every age and country is identified. Chiefly from the want of a con venient means of concentrating the intellectual energies of its disciples, this party has hitherto been almost wholly unrepresented in the republic of letters, while the view> and policy of its opposing creeds are daily advocated by the ablest and most commanding efforts of genius and learning. In the Uniteb States Magazine the attempt will be made to remove tin* reproach. The present is the time peculiarly appropriate for the commencement of such an undertaking, l'he Democratic lardy of the Union, after a conflict which tested to the ut termost its stability and lis principles, have succeeded in retaining possession of the executive administration of the country. In the consequent comparative repose from political strife, the period is auspicious for organizing and calling to its aid anew and powerful ally of this charac ter, interfering with none and co-operating w ith all. Co-ordinate w ith this main design of The United Slates Magazine, no eaie nor cost will be spared to fender it, in a literary |s>int ol view, honorable to the country, and fit to cope in vigor of rivalry with its European competitors. V iewing the English language as the noble heritage and common birthright of all who speak the tongue of Milton and Shakspeare, it will he the uniform object of its con ductors to present only the finest productions in the vari ous branches of literature that ean la- procured, and to diffuse the benefit of correct models of taste and worthy execution. - In this department the exclusivcness of party, which is inseparable from the political department ol such a work, will have no place. Here we all stand on a neutral ground of equality and reciprocity, where those universal principles of taste to which we are all alike subject, will alone be recognized as tfie common law. Our political principles cannot lie compromised, but our common litera ture it w ill be our common pride to cherish and extend, with a liberality of feeling unbiassed by partial or minor views. As the United States Magazine is founded on the broadest basis which the means and inH'.ience of the De mocratic party in the United States can present, it is in tended to render it in every respect a thoroughly Nation al Work, not merely designed for ephemeral interest and attraction, but fo continue of permanent historical value. With this new a considerable portion of'each number will be appropriated to the following subjects, in addition to the general features referred to above : A general summary of Political and of Domestic Intel ligence, digested in the order of the States, comprising all the authentic important facts of the preceding month. General Literary Intelligence, Domestic and Foreign. General Scientific Intelligence, including Agricultural Improvements, a notice of all new Patents, <Ve. A condensed account of new works of Internal Im provement throughout the Union, preceded by a general view of all now in operation or in progress. Military and Naval News, Promotions, Changes, Move ments, hie. Foreign Intelligence. Biographical obituary notices of distinguished persons. After the close of each session of Congress, an extra or an enlarged number will be published, containing a ge neral review and history of its proceedings, a condensed abstract of important official documents, and the acts of the session. Advantage will also lie taken of the means concentrated in this establishment from all quarters of the Union, to collect and digest such extensive statistical observations on all the most important interests of the country as can not fail to prove of very great value. This portion of the work will be separately paged, so as to admit of binding by itself, and will be furnished v ith a copious index, so that the United States Maeazine will also constitute a Complete Anni ai. Reoistek. on a scale unattempted before, and of very great importance to all clause*, not only as affording a current anil combined view, from month to month, of the subjects which it will comprise, but also for record and reference through future years; the value of which will increase with the duration of the work. Although in its political character the United States Magazine addresses its claims to the support of the De mocratic party, it is lioned that its other features referred to above?independently of the desirable object of becom ing acquainted with the doctrines of an opponent thus advocated?will recommend it to a liberal and candid support from all parties mid from the large class of no party. To promote the popular objects in view, and relying up on the united sup|K?rt of the Democratic party, as well as from others, the price of subscription is fixed at I fie low rate of five dnlhrt per annum; while in mechanical ar rangement, and in size, quantity of matter, Arc., the Uni ted States Magazine will be placed on a par at least with the leading monthlies of England. The whole will form three large oclavo volumes each year. IfJ" Terms : !f.r? in advance,or $>6.on the delivery of the third number. In return for a remittance of hve co pies will be sent ; of ?50, thirteen copies will l>e sent j and of ?IO0, twenty-nine copies.

ON the first of Jauuary was published the first num'>er i.f the ninth volume of the American Monthly Mag.aui)< This w ill commence the second year of " the .New Si rio of the American Monthly." One year has panned since, by I lie union of the New Kngland Magazine w lib lit > well established periodical, the resources of a publication which had previously alisorbcd those of the Aim in .m Monthly Review and of the l ulled States Magazine, were all concentrated in the An>rrican Monthly M naa ziiic ; giving at once so broad a basis to the work its to stamp its national character mid ensure its permanent The number of pages, which have each month exceeded one bund red, was ut the same tune increased, Ui make room for an additional sujiply of original matter ; and ea< ii number of the work throughout the year has liecn ortut tnented with an engraving, executed by the first arlisis in j the country. How far t^ie literary contents of the Mujm ! line have kept pace with these secondary improvcini i t-, the public are the best judges. The aim of the proprietors has-been from the first to establish a periodical which should have a'tone and character of its own ; and whir , while rendered sufficiently amusing to ensure tU.eirculu tion,alioiiltl ever keep for its main object the promotion of good taste, and sound, vigorous ami fearless thinking, up on whatever subject it undertook to discuss ; which, in a word, should make ils way,into public favor, and establish its claims to consideration, rather by what should be found in its page* than by any eclat which the nuhies of popular contributors, or the dissemination of laudatory KantL'rupha, could confer. Norhas the American Monthly ad any reason to regret having adopted and followed out | the course prcscnlied to itself from the first. It has in : deed lost bolli contrilmtors and subscribers by the tone of ! some of its papers ; but by the more enlightened who hav? i judged of the tendency of the work in the aggregate anil I not by its occasional difference of opinion w itli theuisi Ives, it has been sustained with spirit and liberality. It Ins 1 been enabled to nterc'C from infancy and dcpendance upon i extrinsic circumstances; and the quickening power of many minds, lalsiring successively or in unison, lias in fused vitality into the creation while shaping U into form, until now it has a living principle of its own It has lie come something, it is hoped, winch "the world would nut willingly let die," Hut though the subscription list of the American Moutl.lv ha-s enlarged Willi lite publications of every number ?lnr the lasl year, it is not yet sufficiently full to justify the publishers in carrying into effect their plan of liberally compensating Iioth the regular contributor* and every wr tcr that furnishes a casual paper for the week Nor till literary labor in every department of a periodical is aili - quately thu" rewarded, can it fully sustain or merit !?? character which an occasional article from a well paid popular pen may give. If these views lie just, there is no impertinence m ap* pealing here to the public to assist in furthering them ' v promoting the pros(?erity of the American Monthly Mn_ seine.

WHITE, EDITOR ASP PROPRIETOR npH,s 18 A MONTHLY MAGAZINE, devot.d X chiefly to literature, but occasionally finding room for articles that fall within the scope of Science ; and not professing an entire disdain of tasteful irlrction*, though its matter ha* been, as it will continue to be, in the main, uriginul. Party politic! and controversial theology, as far as pos sible, are jealously excluded. They are sometimes so blended with discussions in literature or in moral scu m ,, otherwise unobjectionable, as to gain admittance fort:." sake of ihc more valuable matter to which they adhere but whenever that happens, they are inrtdenlal 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 space in the work; and it is the editor's aim that they should have a threefold tendency?to Convey in, a condensed form, such valuable truths or interesting incidents as are einliodied in the works reviewed,?to direct the readei's attention to I looks thai deserve to be read.?and to wain him against wasting time and money upon that large mini 1st, which merit only to lie burned. In this age of publi cations, that by their variety and multitude distract and overwhelm every undiaenminating student, impartial criticism, governed by the views just mentioned, is one ? : the most inestimable and indispensable of auxiliaries. :o hi in who does wish to discriminate. Essays and Tales, having in vicwutility or amuseini nt, or both,?Historical Sketches,?and Reminiscences ol events too minute for history, yet elucidating it, and In iali ening its interest,?may be regarded as forming the Map ? 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 inn country. The times appear, for several reasons, to demand sn.-'i a woik?and not one alone, hut many. The public mind is feverish and irritated still, from recent political stnii The soft, a.ssuasivc influence of literature is needed. to allay that fever, and soothe that irritation. Vice and I" * 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 molion, to arouse the enlightened, anil to increase their number; so that the j great enemy of popular government may no longer brood, I like a portentous cloud, over the destinies of our country i And to accomplish all Ihese ends, what more poweiltil : agent can be employed than a periodical, on the plan ul ! the Messenger; if that plan be but earned out in practiei The South, peculiarly, requires such an agent. In all | the Union, south of Washington, there an' but two literary ! periodicals 1 Northward of that city, there are probably at | least twenty-five or thirty ' Is this contrast justified h> ! the wealth, the leisure, the native talent, or the actual | literary tasle of the Southern people, compared with those | of the Northe.rn ? No: for in wealth, talents, and taste, ! we may justly claim at least an equality with our bre | thren; and a domestic institution exclusively our own, beyond all doubt affords us, if we choose, twice the leisuie for reading and writing, which they enjoy. It was from a deep" sense of I Ins local want, thnt the word Southern was engrafted on the name of this periodical ; and not with uny design to nourish local pr judices, or to advocate supposed local interests Far from any such thought, il is thu editor's fervent wish to see tin North and South bound endearingly together fori vet. i the silken bands of mutual kindness and affection I " from meditating hostility to the North, he lias alrea > draw n, and he hopes hereafter to draw, much of his choio -t matter thence ; a no happy indeed will he deem hiins< should his pages, by making each region know the otb? r. better, contribute in any essential degree to dispel f lowering clouds that now threaten the peace of Iioth. and to brighten and strengthen the sacred ties of fraternal love. The Southern Literary Messenger has now reached ' ? fifth No. of its third vulume. How far it has acted out ideas here uttered.it is not for the editor to say lie believes, however, that it falls not further short of tin; i than human weakness usually makes practice fail shoit el theory. The Messenger is issued monthly.
