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.

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 !

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
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.

which have been properly committed to the mail,

5. The mutual obligations of the publisher, for
the year, are fully incurred as soon as the first num

discontinuance for a subscription will be permitted.
Nor will a subscript'on be discontinued for any car

THE extensive and growing interest of the

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

to the general reader.

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

knowledge and diffuse a taste for the refined en

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.

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.
