FfllHE first number will be issued in January,
IL IS 10, at which time all existing subscrip
tions will terminate, and the paper will be cl is
continued, unless the subscriptions shall have
been or are renewed. The price, as hereto
fore, " ill be One Dollar a year payable in ad
The publication of the Cultivator was com
menced at 25 cents per volume; the price was
afterwards advance I to 50cents, and at the
commencement of the fifth volume, to one
dollar per annum. It is due to our pat
rons and ourselves to explain the cause of this
increase in price. The size of our pages has
been enlarged, the quantity of matter increas
ed and the quality of the paper improved, tin- I
! til the expense of type-setting and paper, the ;
t two prominent items o'.’our expense, is now
more than double what it was when the price
j was 50 cts. and four times as great as it was ;
| when the price was but 25 cents. To enable ,
the reader to judge of its now lehuive cheap- j
ness,compared with literary periodicals, we >
state tor their information, that a volume <>fj
j the Cultivator, including its usual extra sheet,
contains about double the quantity of matter
{ that is contained in two volumes (published
m a year) of the North American Review.—
The subscription price of the two volumes
of the Review is five dollars—that ot the Cul
tivator one dollar. To be equal, in propor
tion to the quantity of matter, the price ot the
Cultivator should be ten dollars a year.
- CP Subscribers to the Cultivator are res
pectfully notified that all subscriptions termi

[From the Temperance Herald.]
Cineas now seeing Pyrrhus intent upon Ii
preparations for Italy, took an opportunit
j when he saw him at leisure, to draw him in'
the folhiwing conversation:
rhe Itoitrans have the reputation of being
excellent soldiers, and have the command of
many warlike nations: if it please heaven that
we conquer them, what use shall we, sir, make
ol ou«* victory r”
“Cineas,” replied the kin?, your question
i answers i’seli. Y» hen the Romans are once
I subdued, there is no town, whether Greek’ or
| Bar hariun, i i all the country, will dare oppose
1 us, but we shall immediately Ire masters ofali
Italy, whose g eatirss, power and imporlanc
no man knows better thau you.”
Cineas,after a short pause, continued, ‘‘But
after we have conquered Italy, what shall we
do next, sir?n
Pyrrhus not yet perceiving his drift, replied,
there is Sicily very near, and stretches out her
arms to receive us, a fruitful and populous is
j land, and easy to be taken ; tor Aga hock
! was no sooner gone, than faction and anarch
prevailed among her cities, and every thing
kept in confusion by her turbulent dema
\\ lint you sav. my princp,r said Cineas, c*
very pmbable; but is the taking td'Ticily t
conclude our eocpcdi io.usf”
‘ Far from it,” answered Pyrrhus; for if hea
ven grant us success in this, that success shall
only he the p elude to greater tilings. ITow
can we forbear Lybia and Carthage,then with- j
in reach, which Agothocles. pven when he
fled in a clandestine manner lor Syracuse, and
crossed the sea with a few ships only, had al
most made himself master of? And when
we have made such conquests, who can pre
tend to say, that, any of our enemies, who are
now so insolent, will think of resisting us ?”
‘"To be sure,” said Cineas, “they will not, for
it is clear tnatso much power will?liable you j
to overcome Macedonia, and establish your- j
sell uncontested sovereign ol Greece. Put I
when we have conquered all, what are we !
to do then
,c vVhv, then, my friend r said Pvr ims, laugh*
| mgC'we will eat, and drink, and be merry r” <
Cineas having brought, him thus far replied,
j “And what hinders us from drinking and tak
ing our ease now, when we have, already,
tuese things in our hands, at which we pro
pose to arrive* through .‘-.‘as of blood, through
infinite toils and danger, through innumerable
calamities, which wv must both cause and !
sillier r” i
i his discourse of Cineas cave Pyrrhus pain,
but produced no reformation. lb,* saw the
certain happiness which he gave up. but was
not a hie to [invpo i iie hopes that flattered his
desires, lie ha I, before this, a fair occasion
given him by lo tune, to enjoy himself in quiet, .
and to govern his own kingdom in pence. i

TTNDEIi this title, the undersigned p opo'es
U to publish a W eekly Journal until ihe
close ol the Presidential Election, on a plan
and at a price which will place it within the
reach of a large portion of the community who
do not hike a newspaper.
The design of the publication is to present
facta $nd arguments beasing upon the promi
nent questh ns a! issue between tlie twogreat
pa nies of the country, and to embody these in
a concise, simple, yet comprehensive form.—
In the preparation ol’inatter for this journal the
publisher expects to be aided by the best ia
Innfs in Ihe State; and if is his purpose to ap
peal to the reason and calm judgment of men,
and not to their passions.
Relieving that a majority of the people are
essentially honest in their intentions,and that
they only err when misled by false informa
tion, it will he a main feature in the Yeoman
to spread Indore them such papers as can be
sustained by indisputable proof—by extracts
from the documentary history of*the country—
and hv facts which carry upon their face the
evidences of truth
The Whig party of Virginia now have every
just motive for union, energy and zeal, in the
struggle before them; and the glorious exam
ple of New York, will stimulate them to ho
norable and unceasing effirts in a cause whu h
they believe to be identified with the dearest
| interests ol the country.
The Yeoman will he issued weekly cn n
sheet of suitable size, at the extraordinary low
price of One Dollar and twenty-five cents for
, nine months; but to justify this cheap rate, ho
less than 6000 copies must he issued.
This will require only ahoutfifty to one hun
dred dollars from each county in the State—a
sum which the Committees of Vigilance will
find hut little difficulty in raising.
Fjve dollars will pay for four copies; but
persons paying lor from 10 to 100 copies in
advance} will be furnished at One Dollars per
'The attention of the County Committee *
respectfulily invited to the subject, as imme
diate action is necessary.
