PROSPECTUS UP TUB PROHIBITIONIST.
" If any State deems the retail and interna) traffic
in ardent spirits injurious to iU oitiseus, and calcu
lated to produce idleness, vice, or debauchery, I sue
nothiug in the Constitution of the United States to
prevent it from regulating or reiitraining the traffic,
or front prohibiting it altogether, if it thinks proper."
Chief Justice 'Punt y.
ON or before the lat of January, 1854, the Execu
tive Committee of the Now \ ork State Tumper
rance Society will issue the first number of a Month
ly Temperance Journal, under the title of" Ttm Pro
HiBiTioHirr."
Itb Sizk.?It will be printed on a doublo medium
sheet, making eight quarto page*, of four oolumns to
a pugo; and, exoluding advertisements, each number
will contain an amount of reading matter equal at
least to that furnished by our larger-iiied daily jour
nals, or to that of an ordinary duodecimo volume of
150 pages.
Its Objkct.?To advocate the Cause of Tempor
anoe generally, and especially the Legislative Prohibi
tion of the Traffio in Intoxicating Beverages, to pre
pare the minds of the mosses for such Prohibition, by
showing its expediency and N&essity, and to secure,
by all tho iutluenco it may legitimately exert, the
vigorous enforcement of Prohibitory Laws when ob
tained.
Irs Fikt.d.?Dealing with genoral principles, with
argumontsalike applicable to evory community where
the traffic exists, and with facte illustrative of those
arguments and principles, the paper will be National
in its spirit, in its scopo, in its purpose, and, we trust,
it will be National in its circulation and influence.
Suoh is our aim and expectation. We desire to see
the Principle of Prohibition established in State after
State, till it becomes the recognised policy of tho Na
tion. It is our ambition to boar a part in this grout
work, and to this end Thk Prohibitionist is estab
lished, not as tho organ of a society merely, but of a
Grkat Rkformatorv Movembnt.
Its Nbcirsity.?Tho existing Tomperance Jour
nals have little, if any, circulation outside of the Tom
perance Ranks. Thoir price almost necessarily re
stricts them to the friends of the cause. Thk Pro
hibitionist is designed for circulation (instead of
tracts) among tho indifferent and tho hostilo. For
this purpose it is put at a prioe so low as to enable
the friends of Tomporanoe in every school district, by
combined action and at an inconsiderable expense,
to place a copy in each family that will oonsent to ro
ooive it.
Its Prici.?One copy for one year - - $0 50
Three, to one address, one year 1 00
Seven do. do. - -2 00
And for oach additional four copies, $1.00 will bo
addod, for any quantity less than fifty copies.
For fifty copies to one address ? $11 00
For 100 do. do. - - - 20 00
No subscription received for less than one yoar,
and in overy case the order must be accompanied by
tho money.
The paper will be under the general direction of
the Executive Committee, who have received ample
assurances of literary aid trorn not a few of the ablest
and most eminent writers in the temperance ranks
throughout the Union.
The work will be stereotyped, and back numbers
can be supplied to new subscribers at any time during
the year.
All orders should be addressod to 0. Scovill, Pub
lishing Agent, Albany.
Communications for the paper, or in relation to tho
interests of the oause generally, should be direct?d to
Win. 11. Burleigh, Corresponding Secretary.
In behalf of the New ^ ork State Temperanco So
ciety : EDWARD C. DKLAVAN, President
Executive Committee.?Henry Mandeville, Reuben
H. Walworth, John 0. Cole, I. N. Wyokoff, William
Richardson, Edgar B. Day, Hermon Camp, B. P.
Stoats, Oliver Scovill.
HP" The Committee request all editors in tho Uni
ted States to give the above one insertion in their
oolumns. To all who eomply with this request, we
will send the Prohibitionist tor one year, without an
exchange, unless they choose to add to our obligation
by sending thoir papers also, which would, of course,
be most thankfully received. Jan. 2?dtf
THK NEW YORK MUSICAL RKVIKW
AND
CHORAL ADVOCATE ?
IS the oheapest and beat Musical Paper in the
world. This Journal, which has heretofore been
published monthly, commenoes its fifth year in Jan
uary next, and thenceforward it will be published
every two weeks?on every other Thursday; thereby
giving more than twice as much matter, without any
increase in price. Each number contains sixteen
quarto pages, four of which are new music, consist
ing ofgloes, hymn tones, chants, anthems, dedication 1
and holyday pieces, and, in short, every variety of 1
music adapted to purposos of religious worship, to
public occasions, and to the home circle; all of which
will be of a practical character, and such as can be '
snng by persons of ordinary musical attainments. In ?
the editorial department of the Review are engaged
(in addition to Mr Cady, the former editor) gentle- I
meu of tho highest talent and ripest musical experi
once, among; whom aro Oeorge F. Root, William B
Bradbury. Thomas Hastings, and Lowell Mason,
and its circle of correspondence, home and foroign,
is complete. The Review will also be a regular uie
dium for the announcement of new musical publica
tions by all the leading publishing houses in the
Union. The subscription list of this paper is now
larger than that of any similar journal in the world,
and the new arrangements, rendering it the cheapest
as well as (it is hoped) the most valuable musical
paper ever published, must largely increase its al
ready unparalleled circulation.
Trrmi. ? One dollar per annum, or alx copies for
live dollars, always in advance.
[T7~ The music alone in a volume would cost over
five dollars in the usual form. Beside this, tuere will
be an immense amount of musical news, essays, crit
icism, instruction, Ac., all for only one dollar! Ev
ery one feeling a particle of interest in the cause of
music will surety subscribe.

1st of February, in the " Philadelphia Sunday
Mercury," the publication of a thrilling and interest
ing story, written expressly for that paper, by George
Lippard, entitled
ELEANOR: Or, SLAVE CATCHING IN
THE QUAKER CITY.
The story is founded on fact* connected with the
operations of the " Fugitive Slave Law " in the city
of Brotherly Love, and in point of interest is fully
equal to Mr. Lippard's celebrated work, " The Quaker
Guy."
A new volume ot the Mercury commences with the

THE GREAT BRITISH QUARTERLIES
AND BLACKWOOD'S MAGAZINE.
Important Reduction in the Rates of Pottage.
LEONARD SCOTT A CO., No. 64 CM street
New York, continue to publish the following
British Periodicals, vis:
The London Quarterly Review (Conservative.
The Edinburgh Review (Whig.)
The North British Review (Free Church.)
The Westminster Review (Liberal.)
Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine (Tory.)
These Reprints have now been in successfcil opera
tion in this oountry for twerUy year*, and their cireu
lation is constantly on the increase, notwithstanding
the competition they enoounter from American perl
odicals of a similar elaes, and of numerous Eclectic.
and Magasinos made up of selections from foreign pe
riodicals. This foot shows clearly the high estimatiot
in which they are held by the intelligent reedinf
public, and affords a guarantee that they are estab
lished on a firm basis, and will be oontinued withou
interruption.
Although these works are distinguished by the po
litical shades above indicated, yet but a small portion
of their contents is devoted to political subiecta It
is their literary character which gives them their chie'
value, and in that they stand confessedly far abov*
all other journals of their class. Blocltrood, still un
der the masterly guidance of Christopher North, main
tains its ancient oelebrity, and is at thi< time unusn
ally attractive, from the serial works of Bulwer and
other literary notablee, written for that Msgasine, and
first appearing in its oolumns both in Great Britaiz
and in the United States. Such works as " The Cax
ons" and " My New Novel," both by Bulwer; " Mj
Peninsular Modal," " The Green Hand," and other
serials, of which numerous rival editions are issued bj
the leading publishers in this country, have to be re
printed by those publishers from the pages of Black
wood, after it hat been itrued by Mesri Scott \ Co.
so that subscribers to the Reprint of that Magasin*
may always rely upon having the earliest reading of

THIS (iRKAT AMERICAN TNMPKKAM'K TALE.
MBS. BIS DABBY;
OK,
THE WEAL AND WOE OF SOCIAL LIFE.
One Volume 12 mo, $1.
THE objeet ol' this tale is to exhibit in different
phases, in high life and low life, the accursed
effects of intemperate drinking, the bane of social
life, the curse of civilised man. The characters are
well and sharply drawn, and the various scenes aro
described with muoh spirit and graphic effect. * *
* We are disposed to rogard the book as the best
of its kind that has yet appeared.?Boston Traveller.
It is not often that we read a story of any kind,
but we have broken our practice, and have read this
book not only with pleasure, but with a gratification
which but very few novels havo ever affordod us. It
is a quiet and simple, but still striking and elfoctive
picture of Amerioan social life.?Chicago Tribune.
Written with marked ability.?Zaiutsvvlle Courier.
A thrilling picture of the effects of that infernal
bane of social life, intemperanoe.?Richmond Pal
ladium.
The style is attractive and fascinating; there is a
freshness and originality about it, that is vory pleas
ing. * * # One of its chief merits is the exoel
lence of its conversations.?Enquirer.
Has so many thrilling passages and well-drawn
characters, that you read it with absorbed attention.
It cannot fail to achieve for Mrs. Collins an enviable
popularity. She takes us with her to the drunkard's
home, and tells of the hunger and the fear, the toil
and tbe suffering, that are there. She paints, with
a woman's delicate skill, the meek patience, the
long-abused, but unchanging love of the drunkard's
wife, touches the deepest chords of the heart, and
makes them vibrate with pity and with indignation.
Christian Herald.
Though Mrs. Collins has already hosts of admi
rers of her literary productions, this work, wo pre
dict, will increase that number ten fold, and give
her a reputation worthy of her high talents.? New
Albany Tribune.
The style is easy, natural, beautiful, chaste, and
at times very eloquent. We would commend it es
pecially to young ladies, that they may see to what
dangers they are exposed, in forming alliances with
the fashionable in high life.?Ohio Organ.
A deeply interesting and powerful work. It vivid
ly portrays some of the terrific exploits of strong
drink in both high and low life. Nor are such scenes
as it depicts either imaginary or few. Let this book
circulate. It has a beneficent aim, and is the vehicle
of admirably old and most salulary lossons.?Pres
byterian.
? * * Has sketched it in Its daintiest form of
fascination, as well as in its grim and dismal aspect
of open degradation. Karely has a woman ventured
to hold the torch to such a dark recess of human
woe.?Daily Times.
We know of no passage, anywhere, more nnU|*ely
beautiful, more intensely absorbing, more overpow
ering in the pathetic, than the thirty-fourth chapter.
It is indeed a gem. We doubt whether tbe celebra
ted chapter devoted to tbe death of Eva, in Uncle
Tom's Cabin, is superior. * ? * It is certainly
tbe most powerful U-mperance tale that we have ever
perused.?Journal and Messenger.
Beautifully written. ? * * A work of great
strength and power.? Gospel Herald.
? * * The incidents dramatic, and the inter
est intense to tbe end.? Ohio Statesman.
Wields an easy pen, and sketches men and man
ners to the life.?Presbyterian Herald.
Oraphic. truthful, chaste, and deeply affecting, tbe
story winds itself into our feelings, and we become
absorbed in tbe plot, as if we beheld before our own
eyes the realities of the author's delineations ? Uai

Such a Paper is demanded by the Farming
Community.
The publishers confidently hclievo that the agri
culturists of this country are becoming too mu?h
awake to the demands of their own calling to be
longer satisfied with the slow monthly isguen of a pa
per profossodly devoted to their interests, or to triiHt
alone to the irresponsible extract* in a "farmer*
column," so popular just now in papers chiefly devo
ted to business, politics, or literature; aud they look
for the united support of all the intelligent faruirra
of this country in their continued effort to fumihh a
weekly paper of a high and reliable character, which
shall be progressive, and at the same time cauti.ua
and oouservative in all it* teachings.
Essentially an Agricultural Paper.
The Agnru/ivriti will not depart, from its legiti
mate sphere to catch popular favor by lumbering up
its pages, with the filly, fictitious lilorature, mid
light, miscellaneous matter ot the dav; it has a high
er aim; and a small part only of its space will be
devoted to matters not immediately pertaining to the
great business of Agriculture, The household us
well as the out-door work of the farm will receive a
due share of attention. The humbugs and nostrums
afloat in the community will be tried by reliable act
entific rules, aud" their wnrthleSRnep* ex posed. It is
the aim of the publishers to keep this paper under
the guidance of tbojw who will make it a standard
work, which shall communicate to its readers only
that which is safe and reliable.
