tinue to be pursued. It will aim to present regu
larly, in more elegant dress and at a cheaper rate,
a larger amount of better reading matter than has
ever been given to tlie public in any similar peri
odical, either foreign or domestic. Its content*! will
b« made up with constant reference to the wants
and tastes of the great body of the American peo
I pie, rather than those of any particular class or
I profession. Wlabj it will be tlie endeavor of its
conductors, in all its departments to combine en
tertainment with instruction, special care will be
taken to exclude everything that can give just
1 cause of complaint to any interest or any section
01'the country, and especially everything''that can
oil'eiid tho most fastidious, 011 the score of taste or
morality. A large number of interesting and
valuable articles have already lu-en prepared for
the next volume the aeries of Pictorial arti

that large share of public favor with w liich thus

Each number will contain 144 octavo pages, in
double columns, each year thus coui}irising nearly
two thousand pages of the choicest Miscellaneous
Literature of the day. Every number w ilf^-on
tain numerous Pictorial Illustrations, accurate
