PROSPKCTUK UP THK PROHIBITIONIST.
" If any Statu deems the retail and internal traffic
in ardent spirit* injurious to its oitixens, and calcu
lated to produce idleness, vice, or debauchery, I see
nothing in the Constitution of the United States to
prevent it from regulating or restraining the traffic,
or from prohibiting it altogether, if it thinks proper."
Chief Justice Tansy.
ON or before the 1st of January, 1864, the Execu
tive Committoe ot the New York State Temper
ranee Society will issue the first uuiuber of a Month
ly Temperance Journal, under the title of " The Pbo
HIBITION18T." '
Its Size.?It will lie printed on a double medium
sheet, making eight quarto pages, of four columns to
a page; and, exoluding advertisements, each number
will contain an amount of reading matter equal at
least to that furnished by our larger-sised daily jour
nals, or to that of an ordinary duodecimo volume ot
150 pages.
Its Objuot.?To advocate the Cause of Temper
ance generally, and especially the Legislative Prohibi
tion of the Traffic in Intoxicating Beverages, to pre
pare tbe minds of the masses for such Prohibition, by
showing ito expediency and Necessity, and to secure,
by all the influence it may legitimately exert, tho
vigorous enforcement of Prohibitory Laws when ob
tained.
Its Field.?Healing with general principles, with
arguments alike ^applicable to every community where
the traffic exists* and with facts illustrative of these
arguments and principles, the paper will be National
in its spirit, in Its scope, in its purpose, and, we trust,
it will be National in ita circulation and influcnco.
Such 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 the Na
tion. It is our ambition to bear a part in this great
work, and to this end The Prohibitionist is estab
lished, not as the organ ot a society merely, but of a
Obeat IUkokmatuky Movement.
Its Nbubssity.?The existing Temperance Jour
nals hare little, if any, circulation outside of the Tem
porance Ranks. Thoir price almost necessarily re
stricts them to tho friends of the cnuso. The Pro
hibitionist is designed for circulation (instead of
tracts) among tho indifferent and the hostile. For
this purpose it is put at a price so low as to enable
the friends of Temperance in overy school district, by
combined aetion and at an inconsiderable expense,
to plaoo a copy in each family that will consent to re
ceive it.
Its Prick.?One copy for ono year - - $0 SO
Three, to one addross, one year 1 00
Seven do. do. - - 2 00
And for each additional four copies, $1.00 will be
added, for any quantity loss than fifty copies.
For fifty copies to one addross - - $11 00
For 100 do. do. - - 20 00
No subscription received for less than one year,
and in every case the order must be accompanied by
tho money.
The paper will be under the general direction of
the Executive Committee, who have reoaived ample
assurances of literary aid trom not a few of the ablest
and most eminent writers in the temperance ranks
throughout tho 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 addressed to 0. Scovill, Pub
lishing Agent, Albany.
Communications for the paper, or in relation to tho
interests of the cause generally, should be directed to
Wm. H. Burleigh, Corresponding Secretary.
In behalf of the New 1 ork State Temperanoe So
ciety : EDWARD C. DSL A VAN, President.
Executive Committee.?Henry Mondeville, Reuben
H. Walworth, John O. Cole, I. N. Wyekoff, William
Richardson, Kdgar B. Day, Hermon Camp, B. P.
Stoats, Oliver Soovili.
[??" The Committee request all editors in the Uni
ted States to give the above one insertion in their
columns. To all who comply with this request, w*
will send the Prohibitionist for one year, without an
exchange, unless they choose to add to our obligation
by sending their papers also, which would, of oourse,
be most thankfully received. Jan. 2?dtf
THK ??W YORK MIMICAL REVIEW
AND
CHORAL ADVOCATE
IS the cheapest and best Musiool Paper in the
world. This Journal, which has heretofore been
published monthly, commences 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. Koch number contains sixteen
quarto pages, four of which are new music, consist
ing of glees, hymn tunes, chants, anthems, dedication
and holvdoy pieces, and, in short, every variety of
music adapted to purposes of religious worahip, to
public occasions, and to the home eirole; all of wnich
will bo of a practical character, and sueh as can be
sung by persons of ordinary musical attainments. In
the editorial department of the Review are engaged
(in addition to Mr Cady, the former editor) gentle
men of the highest talent and ripest musical experi
ence, among whom ore George F. Root, William B
Bradbury, Thomas Hastings, and Lowell Mason;
and its circle of correspondence, home and foreign,
is complete. The Review will also be a regular mo
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 nnparollelod circulation.
Trrmt. ? One dollar per annum, or six copies for
five dollars, always in advance.
(ET* The music alone in a volume would cost ever
five dollars in the usual form. Beside this, tnere will
be an immense amount of mnsical 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 surely subsoribe.

THIS URKAT AMERICAS TOI'KKAMK TALK.
MSB. BEN DARBY;
OK,
THE WEAL AND WOK OF SOCIAL LIFE.
(hie Volume 12 mo, $1.
THE objeet of 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 are
described with muoh spirit and graphio effoot. * *
* We are disposed to rogard the boiok 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 hare broken our practice, and have read this
book, not only with pleasure, but with a gratification
which but very few novels have ever afforded us. It
is a quiet and simple, but still striking and effective
piotaro of American sooial life.?Chicago Tribune.
Written with marked ability.?Zanerville Courier.
A thrilling picture of the effects of that infernal
bane of social life, intemperance.?Richmond Pal
ladium.
The style is attractive and fascinating; there is a
freshness and originality about it, that is very pleas
ing. * * * One of its ohief merits is tbe excel
lence of its conversations.?Enquirer.
Has so many thrilling passages and well-drawn
characters, that you read it with absorbed attention.
It oannot 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 tbe fear, tho toil
and the suffering, that are there. She paints, with
a woman's delicate skill, the meek patienoe, the
long-abased, but unchanging love of the drunkard's
wife, touches the deepest chords of the heart, and
makes them vibrate with pity and with indignation.
Ckrittutn Herald.
Though Mrs. Collins has already hosts of admi
rers of her literary productions, thia work, we 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 alliaaoee with
the fashionable in high life.?Ohio Organ.
A deeply interesting and powerftil work. It vivid
ly portrays some of tbe terrile exploits of strong
drink in both high and low life. Nor are such aoenes
as it depicts either imaginary or few. Let this book
circulate. It has a beneficent aim, and is the vehiole
of admirably old and most salutary lessons.? Pres
byterian.
* * * Has sketched it In its daintiest form of
fascination, as well as in its grim and dismal aspect
of open degradation. Rarely has a woman ventured
to hold the torch to such a dark recess of human
woe.? Daily Time*.
We know of no passage, anywhere, more uniquely
beautiful, more intensely absorbing, more overpow
ering in the pathetic, than the thirty-fourth chapter
It is indeed a gem. We doubt whether the oelebra
ted chapter devoted to tbe death of Bva, in Uncle
Tom's Cabin, is superior. * * * It is certainly
the most powerful temperance tale that we have ever
perused.?Journal and Messenger.
Beautifully written * * * A work of great
strength and power.?Gospel Herald.
* * * The incident* dramatic, and the inter
est intense to tbe end ?Okio Statesman.
Wields an easy pen, and sketches men and man
ners to the life.? Presbyterian Herald.
Graphic, truthful, chaste, and deeply affecting, the
story winds itself into our feelings, and we become
abeorbed in the plot, as if we beheld before our own
eyes tho realitiee of the author's delineations. ? Z>?i
ly Sun.

Suck a Paper is demanded l*y the Farming
Community.
The publishers confidently believe that the agri
culturist! of this country are becoming too much
awake to the demands of their own calling to be
longer satisfiod with the slow monthly issues ol a pa
per professedly devoted to their iuterosts, or to trust
alone to the irresponsible extracts in a "fanners
column," so popular just now in papers chiefly devo
ted to business, politics, or literature ; and they look
for the united support of all the intelligent fanners
of this country in their continood effort to furnish a
weekly paper of a high and reliable character, whit h
shall be progressive, and at the same time cautious
and conservative in all its teachings.
Essentially an Agricultural Paper.
The Agnrultnrnt will not depart from its legiti
mate *tiore to catch popular favor by lumbering up
its pages, with the silly, fictitious literature, and
light, miscellaneous matter of the dav ; it has a high -
er aim; and a small part only of its space will bo
devoted to matters not immediately pertaining to the
great business of Agriculture. The household as
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 sci
entific rules, and their worthiness exposed, it is
the aim of the publishers to keep this paper under
the saidinee of tbott who will make it a RtaMtard
work, which shall communicate to ita readers only
that whioh is safe and reliable.
An Independent Journal.
The American AfnruJturnt stands upon its own
merits, and the truthfulness, xeal, and ability,
I whioh it brings to the support of the interests of the
\ tenner. It is un tram moled by any collateral busi
ness connections whatever; nor is it the organ of any
clique, or the puffing machine of any man or thing.
Thoroughly independent in all points, its ample |>*
