THE plan of this Publication embraces extended re views of important works, and discussions of impor tant subjects in every department of literature and think ing, similar in form und manner of those which make up the contents of Quarterly Reviews generally. It proposes, also, a brief analytical survey of the literary productions of every current quarter, with short critical indications of their character and value in their respective departments. It cmbraccs, likewise, a register of the most important events and facts in the literary and religious world, par ticularly in reference to the state and progress of the Church. ' The object of the whole work is to exhibit, as far as possible, every thing most important to a just estimate of the character of the times, und of the intellectual and moral movement of society ; to promote the interests of good literature, sound thinking, religion, and Christian order. In this general tone and spirit, it will be con formed to the principles of the Protestant Episcopal Church. The conviction of the truth and importance of these principles, as they are held in the unity of the Church, maintained in a free and uncompromising, yet liberal, candid and conciliating spirit, will constitute the unity of the work. Arrangements have been made to secure the aid of the best writers throughout the country; and no pains or ex ensewill be spared to make this publication a work of the highest character. Term*.?The work will contain an average of 250 page* to each number; and will lie furnished to Subsenlicrs at Five l>ollar* a year, payable on delivery of the fir*t num ber.

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 diea.

Baltimore, 26th August, 1837. twtlN5 0 TENTH VOLUME OF THE KNICKERBOCKER MAGAZINE. N the first of July, 1837, commenced the tenth volume v of the Knickerbocker, or New York Monthly Miura zine. The publishers, mindful of the favor with which their efforts nave been received at the hands of the public, would embrace the recurrence of a new starting point, as a fit occasion to " look backw ard and forward" at the past and prospective character and course of their periodical. Within tne brief space of a little more than two year* and a half, the number of copies issued of the K nickei bocker has l>een increased from less than five hundred to more than four thousand, without other aids than the acknow ledged merits of the work?acknow ledged, not more expli citly by this unprecedented success, than by upward of three thousand highly favorable noticcs 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 cluss 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, not one but has found the work worthy of immediate subscription. A correct inference in regard to the interest or quiuity of the matter furnished by the publishers, maybe gathered from the foregoing facts. In relation to the quantity given, it need only be said, that it has always exceeded the maximum promised, and in the numbers for the last year, by more than four hundred pages. Of the clearness and beauty of the typo graphical execution and material of the Knickerbocker, and the character of its embellishments?which, although not expected by 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 lieen observed, tlml the constant aim of the edi tors, in the management of the Knickerbocker, has lieen to make the work entertaining and agreeable, as well as solid and useful. It is perhaps ow ing to the predominance of these first named characteristics, that it has become so widely hnown to the public. In addition to several well known and popularseries of numbers?such as the ?? Odds and End* of a Penny-a-Liner," "Ollapodiana," the " Pal myra Letters," " An Actor's Alloquy, " LerfVes from the Blank Book of a Country Schoolmaster," " Wilson ('on worth," " Life in Florida," " Loaferiana," " The 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 pers," flic.?liberal space has lieen devoted to interesting Talcs, illustratint American so<?iety, manners, the times, flee., embracing, besides, stories of the sea, and of pathos and humor, upon a great variety of subjects, together with biographies, legends, and essays, u[Kin numerous and 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-emincnce and celebrity. But neither the scientific nor the learned, the solid nor the useful, has Iteen omitted, or lightly regarded. Origi nal articles, from distinguished writers, (which have at tracted murh attention in this country, and several of which have lieen copied and lauded abroad,) have appear ed in the recent numbers of the work, upon the following subjects: Past and Present Slate of American Literature; South American Antiquities; Inland Navigation; Geology and Revealed Religion; Insanity and Monomania; Liberty rerun* Literature and the fine Arts; Early History of the Country ; Connexion of the Physical Sciences ; At mospheric Electricity, a New Theory of Magnetism, and Molecular Attraction; American Female Character; Pulmonary Consumption ; Pulpit Eloquence ; The pro*. pects and Duties of the Age ; Health of Europe and America; Literary Protection and International Copy Right ; Poetry of the Inspired Writings ; Chinese Na tion* and Langunccs; Chemistry (Lalionit'ory of Nature) 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 ami Scenery ; Philosophy of the Rosicrucian* ; Intellectual Philosophy, Philology, Astronomy, Animal and Vegetable Phy*iology, Astrology, Botany, Mineralo gy, and Phrenology ; Progress of the Age, and of Modern Liberty; Christianity in France; American Organic W1 Remain ? i Htstarieal Reeo!l?nio?s, tto Nnlure of Co uieU: DisruMion on HcnuUiimi MiimU?; fcteciioaal Uii tinclUMMof the Union, Pence Societies I Periodicity ol Dimmm; Emjri on Music, Fine Writing, i wp*" i>w.r wub many arUcica of a kindred deaeripuim, wbieh it would ezee*d liie limit? of liu* adveiUaa^anl to enurnc rate in detail To the foregoing particular*, the publishers would on ly add, that at no period aince the work paaaed into their Uanda, hate rta lllerary c?|?biiitie* and proapaeta been ao ajnulu and auapieioua aa at pirwnt; and that not only will the tame exertiona be continued, which have aacured to their subscription lift an unexampled increaae, but their claim* upon the public favor will tie anbawcrd by every mean* which increasing endeavors, enlarged fnetiiU**, itud the moat liberal expenditure, can command.

THILE nearly every country of the old world can w i boast of ita collected body of national Poetry, on which the seal of a people'* favorable judgment has been set, and which exhibit* to foreign nation* in the most striking light the progress of civilization and literary re I finement among its inhabitants ; while England, especial ly, proudly displays to the world a corpus poetarum the lustre of whose immortal wreath has shed a brighter g'ory upon her name than the most splendid triumphs wluch her statesmen and her soldiery have achieved, our own country seem* destitute of poetic honors. Appears, we say, for although no full collection of the chef d trutres ol our writers has been made, yet. there exist, and nre occa sionally to be met w ith productions of American poet* which will bear comparison with the noblest and most polished efforts of European genius, and which claim for America as high a rank in the scale of literary elevation as is now cedcd to older and in some respect* more fa vored lands. Impressed with the correctness of this judgment we propose to issue a monthly magazine which shall contain in a perfect unmut.ilated form, the most meritorious and beautiful effusions 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 add interest to 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 already in possession of more than two hundred vol umes of the production of American bards, from about the year 1630 to the present day. Nor is it from these sources alone that materials may lie drawn. There are but few writer* in our country who pursue authorship as a voca tion, and whose works have been 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 been carelessly inserted in periodical* of 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 flower* of the w ildemess 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 beauty and the spirit of truth, in quantities sufficient, were it known and appreciated as it would lie in other countries, to secure to them an honorable reputation throughout the world.? Such were Harney, author of' Crystalina' and the ' Fever Dream,' Sands, author of 'Yamoyden;' Wilcox, author of the 'Age of Benevolence;' Robinson, author of 'The Savage;' Little, the sweet and tender poet of Christian feeling, the lamented Brainard, and many beside, whose writings are almost unknown, save by their kindred asso ciates and friends. 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, Percival, Sprague, Sigourney, Whittier, Willis, fir. the public are familiar; and we can assure them that there exists, though long forgotten and unknown, a mine of noetic wealth, rich, varied and extensive, which will amply repay the la bor of exploring it, and add undying lustre to the crown which cncirclcs the brow of American genius. In the pub lication 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 ' gems of purest ray,' with whieh our researches into the literary an tiquities of our country have endowed us ; and we are con fident that every lover of his native land will regard our enterprise as patriotic and deserving the sup|>ort of the citizens of the United Slates, as tending to elevate the character of that country in the scale of nations, and as sert its claims to the station to which its children entitles it. With this conviction we ask the patronage of the com munity to aid us in our undertaking, con?ciou* that we are meriting its support by exhibiting to the world a Droud evidence that America, in the giant strength of her Hercu lean childhood, is destined ere long to cope in the arena of literature with ihose lands w hich for centuries have boast ed their civilization 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 Amkrican Antholoov will contain complete works of a portion of the following?the most popular of our poetic writers?and of the others, the best poems, and such as are least generally known : Adams, John Quincy Gould, Hannah F. Allston, Washington Hallack, Fit* Greene Barl>er, Joseph Hsrncy, John M. Barlow. Joel Hillhouse, John A. Benjamin, Park Hoffman, Charles F. Bogart, Elizabeth Mellen, Grcnville Brsinerd, John O. C.

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 subscribers by the tone of tome of its paper* ; but by the more enlightened w bo have judged of the tendency of the work in the aggregate and not by its occasional difference ofopinion with themselves it has been sustained with spirit and liberality. It has been enabled to merge from infancy and dependance upon extrinsic circumstances; and the quickening power of many minds, laboring successively or in unison, has in fused vitality into the creation while shaping it into f, ,n until now it has a living principle of its own. It has be! come something, it is hoped, which " the world would not willingly let die," But though thesubscription list of the American Monthly has enlarged with the publications of every number during the last year, it is not yet sufficiently full to justify the publishers in carrying into effect their plan of liberally compensating lx>th the regular contributors and every wri ter that furnishes a casual paper for the week N'or t 11 literary labor in every department of a periodical is ade quately thu- rewarded, can it fully sustain or merit the character which an occasional article from a well paid popular pen may give.

PROSPECTUS OF THE SOUTHERN LITERARY MESSENGER, THOMAS W. WHITE, EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR. This is a monthly magazine, devoted chiefly to literature, but occasionally finding room lor articles that fall within the scope of Science ; and not professing an entire disdain of tasteful trlectum?, though its matter has been, as it will continue to lie, in the main, original. Party politics and controversial theology, as far as pos ?'Me, are jealously excluded They are sometimes so blended with 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 are 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 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 arc embodied in the works reviewed,?to direct the reader * attention to books that deserve to be read,?and to warn him against wasting time and money upon that large num ber, which merit only to lie burned. In this age of publi cations, that by their variety and multitude distract and overwhelm every undisenminating student, impartial criticism, governed by the views just mentioned, is one of the most inestimable and indispensable of auxiliaries, to him who does w ish to discriminate. Essays and Tales, having in viewutility or amusement, or both, Histoncal Sketches,?and Reminiscences of events too minute for history, yet elucidating it, and height ening its interest,?may be regarded as forming the staple ? l j wor^- And of indigenous poetry, enoush is pub ashed?sometimes of no mean strain?to manifest and to cultivate the growing poetical taste and talents of our country. I he times appear, for several reasons, to demand such a work?and not one alone, but many. The public mind 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 number; so that the great enemy of popular government may no longef brood, like a portentous cloud, over the destinies of our countrv. And to accomplish all these ends, what more powerful 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 l;nion, south of Washington, there are but two literarv periodicals ! Northward of that city, there are probably at least twenty-five or thirty ! Is this contrast justified by the wealth, the leisure, the native talent, or the actual literary taste of the Southern people, compared with those of the Northern ? 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 leisure for reading and writing, which they enjoy. It was from a deep sense of this local want, that the word Southern was engraAcd on the name of this periodical; and not w ith any design to nourish local pre judices, or to advocate supposed local interests. Far from any such thought, it is the editor's fervent wish to see the North and South bound endearingly together forever, in the silken bands of mutual kindness and affection f ar from meditating hostility to the North, he has already drawn, and he hopes hereafter todraw, much of his choicest matter thence; sno happy indeed w ill he deem himself, should his pages, by making each region know the other better, contribute in any essential degree to dispel the lowering clouds that now threaten the peace of lioth, and to brighten and strengthen tbc sacred ties of fraternal love. The Southern Literary Messenger has now reached the fifth No. of its third volume. How far it has acted out tlie ideas here uttered, it is not for the editor to sav He belieres, howevei1, that it falls not further short of them than human weakness usually makes practice fall short o. theory. The Messenger is issued monthly. Each number of the work contains (H large super-royal pages, printed in th* very handsomest manner, on new type, and on p?|"r equal at least to that on which any other periodical l? printed in our country. No subscription w ill lie received for less than a volume, and must commence with the current one. The price i> 85 per volume, which must be paid in all cases at the tune of subscribing. This is particularly adverted to now to avoid misapprehension, or future misunderstanding??? no order will hereafter l>e attended to unless accompanied w ith the price of suliscription. The postage on the Messenger is six cents on any sin gle No. for ail distances under lOOmiles?over 100 miles,' ten cents. All communications or letters, relative to the Messen ger, must be addressed to Thomas W. W iiitk._ Southern Literary .Messenger Office, Richmond, THE MADISOMAN.
