And ol lndigcsous r.ttuifti . uih)uj;ii ia Aiihll.hod jometimoa of no mean Strain to manifest and to cultivate the growing poetical tiato and talents ot our country. The times appear, for several reason ', to demand such a work end not one alone, but many. The public mind is feverish and irritated still, from re cent poetical s'ril'e The soft, tssuasive influence of Literature is needed, to allay that fever, and soothe tliat irritation. Viaeand folly are rioting abroad: They should ho driven by indignant re hnlip. nlhed hv ridicule, into their K'ti'lff haunts. Iirnoranco lords it over an immense proportion of aa. riMintn- l-'.eere onrifltf should DO Set 111 motion, toaniiisntlie enlightened, and to increase theif number; so thr.t the great enemy of popular gov ernment may no longer bread, like a porteum cloud, over the destinies of our country. And to accomplish all these ends, what more powerful agentcanbe employed, thnn a petiodical, on-that 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 at least twenty-five or thirty ! t. - j f. : .taJll.. it ...nnitl. tU Ia'.h.m is mis conirasi JU5.1HU.I uiv v.. thenativetalc.it, or the actual literary taste, o the Southern people, compared with those of the Northern! No for in wealth; talents, and taste, we may justly claim at le&st an equality with our bretheren; 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 the local want, that the word Southern was engrafted on the name of this periodical! and not with any design tn nour ish local prejudices, or to advocate supposed loea intercsts. 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. Far from meditating hostility to the North, he has already drawn, and ho hopes hereafter to draw, much of his choicest matter thence: and happy indeed will he deem himself, should his puges, by making etch region know the other better, contribute in any essential degree to despel the lowering clouds that now threaten the peace of both, and to brighten and strengthen the sacred ties of fraternal love. THE SOUTHERN LITERARY MESSENGER has now reached the ftrst No. of the IV volume. How ftr it has acted out the ideas here uttered, is 'not for the Editor to say. He believes, bowe-er, .Sat it : falls nt fmthnr tWiV.. 'itu., uiaui 'iiutiiun i - weakness usually make Practice fall short Of Theorr. CONDITIONS 1. The Southern Literary Messenger is publish ed in monthly numbers, of (14 large superroyal oc tavo pages each, on the best of paper, and neatly covered, at $5 a year payable invariably, in ad vance. 2. Or fivf "new subscribers by Mndtng their names and 20 atone time to the Editor, will re ceive their copies for one year, for that sum, or at $4 for each. 3. The risk of loss of payments for subscriptions which have been properly committed to the mail, or to the banes of a postmaster, is assumed by the Editor. 4. If a subscription is not directed to be discon tinued before the first nnmber of a volume has been published, it wall be taken as a continuance for another year. Subscriptions must commenco with the bcgiuningol'thcvolume,and will not be taken for less than n year's publication, unless the indi vidual subscriliing.is willing to pay ti for a short' er period even if it be for a single uumbor. 5. The mutual obligations of the publisher, for the year, are fully incurred as soon as the first num ber of the volume is issued: and after that time, no discontinuance for a subscription will be permitted. Nor will a subscript'on be discontinued for any car lier notice, while anything thereon remains due, unless at the option of the Editor.

The support and palronage of the intelligent citizens of this tjreat slate, 1 feel confidont, will not be withheld from aiding in the accomplishment of a work which will more widely disseminate a knowledgo of our -nstitutions, and the wisdom on which they are based. The work will bo published in two royal octavo volumes, comprising from five to seven hundred pa ges, containing all after the enacting clause, verba tim, of every law now in force, of a general na ture, together with a reference tn the pamphlet laws. A digested index to the contents of the volumes, wilt be appended, at once lo the view a condensed statement of the standing law, under its distinct and appropriate title. TlftM. will be, to subscribers, Five dollars per volume, bound and lettered. The work will, if suflitient enroiiragetiient U obtained, be ready for delivery by lhe first nf Jan uary, 1839. T. J.

THE extensive and growing interest of the Southwest, its moral and social improvement, and its increasing literary and scientific demands, Jiave awakened attention to the fact that in this highly important portion of our country thero' is nojour nal or paper exclusively devoted to literature and science, advocating the doctrines of no party. Feeling the necessity of such a paper, the Jef ferson College and Washington Lyceum have commenced the publication of a periodical entitled "The South-Western Journal,'" to be devoted to literature and science, and all subjects interesting to the general reader. It is published semi-monthly, in the city of .Natche ., and can tains sixteen m i similar .Of-iur...-i. paper, aad is protected by a good eaaeiope, so that it may be conveyed to any distance without injn- rr- It will be remembered that we have no work in the Soutewcct similar to this; and every one who feelsa pride in any enterprise calculated to en hance the social and moral character f our coun try, should come forward and assist in this wor thy enterprise. Pecuniary emolument constitutes no part of the object of this publication. It is not intended to benefit any individual or the Lyceum in a pecu niary point of view. The sole object is to advance knowledge and diffuse a taste for the refined en joyments of literature and science. Nothing is now wanting to the accomplishment of the wishes of the Lyceum but the patronage of the community; and it is expected that this pat ronage will be promptly and cheerfully extended. All communications in reference to the periodi cal should be addressed, post paid, to Professor J. A. Van Hoesen, the Secretary of the Lyceum, Natchez, Miss. The subscription price If $" 00, in all cases in advance. The first nnmber of this paper is dated Decem ber 15, 1887, audit will bceontinuod semi-monthly from that date. G. V. Hi FORBES. 6.8. B..

HVWKKHO'.IJS OR PILES vary very mucn iniaenndform,aretither external or inter" nal and depend on general or local causes, as inju ry done to llio pnrt;, by the frequent passage of in durated or hardened stools, use of a luetic purges, long continued exercise in the erect posture, sit ting on a old or a damp sent, diseases cl the liv er; constant purging with drastic medicines, riding on horse-bvk, costiveness of the bowels, irregular habits; sedentary 'iccupations, Sl. Tim symtoniw which they occasion may bo divided into such as occur in accidental piles, and such as attend permanent piles. Accidental pies are fre quently attended with a sense of heat uml puin at the extremity of the rectum or lowest intestine and in the loins, head ache nnd giddiness, flatulence, and not uncommonly marks ofgeuernl fovenshness such as dryness of the mouth and fauces, scanty and high colored urine, furred, tongue, vilh a fre quent desire to void the urine and fteCes. The evacuation by the bowels is painful, and very of ten occasions the tumors to bleed. Tie perma nent organized piles produce in many instances a degree of inconvenience which interfere most se riously with the active duties and COmfoitS Of life. Even when altogether internal, they aaptde by their bulk the passage of the fieces, give )iso to so vore pain whenever the bowels aro eriticd, and gradually bring on that train of evils wlach neces sarily follows long cortinued constipatitn. Wheatho piles are external they often swell enormously; are very lender, however small they may be, and sometimes ulcerated. BOOTH & CHRISTIAN. Memphis, April 30, m7.
