like picture of Pereira, the vessel in whiob he sailed,
the storius she encountered, and her wrecked condition
when brought into the port of Charleston, S. C.; to
gether with the imprisonment of Pereira, several sea
men belonging to the New England States, and two
r'ench seamen; the prison regimen, character of the
< I* irleston police, and the mendacity of certain offl
ciala, who make the law a medium of peculation. The
work ia replete with incidents of Southern life and
character, pointing SoiHherner* to the thinga that call
for correction at their own hands, with a force that
oannot be mistaken. The work ia written by one who
has taken a prominent part in the affairs of th* South,
anil cannot fail to intercut alike the general reader
commercial man, and philanthropist."

Hollo on tho Atlnntic " is the first book of a se
riea to be published under the general title of Rollo'a
Tour in Europe.
Extract from the Preface :
The books are intended to be bonks of instruc
tion, rather than of mere amusement; and,sin peru
sing them, the reader may feel assured that all the in
formation which they contain, liot only in rcspoct to
tho countries visited, and to the customs, usages, and
modes of life that are described, but also in regard to
the general character of the incidents and adventures
that the yonng travellers meet with, is in most strict
accordance with fact. The main design of the narra
tive is thus the communication of useful knowledge;
and everything which they contain, except what is
strictly personal, in relation to the actors in the story
may be depended uppn as exactly and scrupulously
true." Published by

< Chief Just if it TWy.
ON or before the 1st of Junuarv, 1864, the Execu
tive Committee ot the New \ ork State Teuiper
Society will issue the first number of a Month
ly Temperance Journal, under the title of " Tim Phu
HIBITIOKIST."
It# Suk ? It will be printed on a double modium
sheet, making eight quarto pages, of four oolumna to
a page; and, excluding advertisements, each number
will contain an amount of readiug matter equal at
leant to that furnished by our larger-ained ilaily jour
nals, or to that of an ordinary duodecimo volume of
150 pages. '
Its Objkct.?To advocate the Cause of Toinper
anoe generally, and especially the Legislative Prohibi
tion of the l^ffic in Intoxicating Beverages, to pre
pare the minds of the musses for auch Prohibition, by
allowing its expediency and Necessity, and to secure,
all the influence it may legitimately exert, the
aureus enforcement of Prohibitory Laws when ob
led.
Its Fikij>.?Dealing with general principles, with
arguments alike applicable to every community where
the traffio exists, and with facta illustrative of thcae
arguments and principles, tho paper will bo National
in its spirit, in ita scope, in its purpose, and, we trust,
it will be National in its circulation and influence.
Suoh is our niin and expectation. Wo desire to see
the Principle of Prohibition established in State after
State; till it becomes tho rucogniscd policy of the Na
tion. It is our ambition to bear a part in this great
work, and to this end Tun Pkoiiiuitiohikt is estab
lished, not as the organ ol u society merely, but of a
(liteat Rkvokmatokv Movkmknt.
Ith Nkcekmity.?The existing Temperance Jour
nals have little, if any, circulation outside of the Tem
perance Hanks. Their pricc almost necessnrily re
stricts them to the friends of tho cause. Tiik Pko
Him'riONiST is designed for circulation (instead of
tracts) among the indifferent nnd the, hostile. For
this purpose it is put at a price so low as to enable
tho irionda of Teinpcranco in every school district, by
combined action and at un inconsiderable expense,
to placo a copy in each family that will conscut to ro
oeivc it.
Its Prick.?One copy for ono year - - $0 50
Three, to one address, 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 fitly copies.
For fifty oopiea to one address - - $11 00
For 100 do. do. - - 20 00
No subscription received for less than one year,
and in evory case the order must bo accompanied by
the money.
The paper will be under the general direction of
the Executive Committee, who have received ample
Hasurancoa of literary aid lroin not a few of the ablest
and moat eminent writers in the teinpcranco ranks
throughout the Union.
The work will be stereotyped, and hack numbers
can be supplied to new subscribers at any time during
the year.
All orders should bo addressed to 0. Scovill, Pub
lishing Agent, Albany.
Communications for tho paper, or in relation to the
|. interests of the cause generally, should bo directed to
Win. II. Burleigh, Corresponding Socrctary.

ciety : EDWARD C. DKLAVAN, President

CCr" The Committee request all editors in tho Uni
ted States to give the above one insertion in their
columns. To all who eomply with this request, we
will send the Prohibitionist for one year, without an
exchango, unless they ohoose to add to our obligation
by sonding their papers also, which would, of course,
be inoat thankfully recoived. Jan. 2?dtf
THE NKW YORK MUSICAL KKVIKW
AND
CHORAL ADVOCATE
JS the cheapest and best Musical Paper in the
world. This Journal, which has heretofore been
publiahed monthly, comtnenccs its filth year in Jan
uary next, and thenceforward it will bo published
every two weeks?on every other Thursday; thereby
giving more than twice as much matter, without any
increase in priee. Each number contains sixteen
quarto pages, four of which are new music, consist
ing of glees, hymn tunes, chants, anthems, dedication
and holyday pieces, and, in short, every variety of
music adapted to purposes 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
sung by persons of ordinary musical attainments. In
the editorial department of the Review are engaged
(in addition to MrgCiuly, the former editor) gentle
men of the highest Talent and ripest musical experi
ence, among whom aro George F. Root, William B.
Bradbury, Thomas Hastings, and Lowell Mason,
and it? circle of correspondence, home and foroign,
is complete. The Review will also be a regular me
dium for the announcement of nelr musical publica
tions by all tbe leading publishing houses in the
Union. Tbe sabscription list of this paper is now
larger than that of any similar journal in the world,
and tbe new arrangements, rendering it the chea|>?st
as well m (It is hoped) tbe moat valuable musical
paper- efrer published, must largely increase ita al
ready unparalleled circulation.
Term*. ? One dollar per annum, or six oopiea for
five dollars, always in advance.
?T7" The music alone in a volume would cost over
five dollars ia the usual form. Beside this, tnere will
be an immense amount of musical news, essays, crit
icistn, instruction, Ac., all for only one dollar! Ev
ery on* feeling a particle of interest in tbe eause of
musio will rarely subscribe.

Tho Westminster Review (Liberal.)
Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine (Toty.)
Those Reprints have now been in aucceaaful opera

lation ia conatantly on the increase, notwithstanding
the competition they encounter from American peri
odicals of a similar claaa, and of numerous Eclectic
and Magaxinea made up of selections from foroign pe
riodicala. Thia fact shows clearly the high eatiwatioi
In which they are held by the intelligent reading
public, and affords a guarantee that they are estab
lished on a firm basis, and will be continued withoo
interruption.
Although these works are distinguished by the pc
litical shades above indicated, yet but a small portiot
of their contents is devoted to political subjects Ii
is their l?/rrary character which gives them their chie;
value, and in that they stand confeaaedly far abovt
all other journals of their class. Blackwood, still nn
der the masterly guidance of Christopher North, main
tains its ancient celebrity, and is at this time unuau
ally attractive, from the serial works of Bulwer and
other literary notables, written for that Magaiine. anc
first appearing in its columns both in Great Britair
and in the United States. Such works as "The Cax

Peninsular Medal," "The Green Hand," and other
serials, of which numerous rural editions are issued bj
the leading publishers in th# country,-have to be re

so that subscribers to the Reprint of that Maguxint

THE WEAL AND WOE OF SOCIAL LIFE.
One Volume 12 mo, #1.
THE object of this tale is to exhibit in different
pbiuuM, iu high life aud low lifo, the accursed
effects of intemperate drinking, tho bane of social
lifo, tho curse of civilized mau. Tho characters are
well and Bharply drawn, and tho various scenes are
described with much spirit and graphic effect, * *
* We are disposed to rogard the book as the best
of its kind that has yet appeared.? Boston Truvelle.r.
It is not often that we read a story of auy kind,
but wo have broken our practice, and have read this
book not only with pleasure, but with u gratification
which but very low novels have ever afforded us. f It
is a quiet and simple, but still striking and effective
picture of American social life.? Chicago Tribune.
Written with marked ability.?Zai(esvillr Cornier.
A thrilling picture of tho effects of that infernal
bane of social life, intemperance.?Richmond J'<tl
ladium.
Tho style is attractive and fascinating ; there is a
freshness and originality about it, that is very pleas
ing. * * * One of its chief merits is the excel
lence of its conversations.? Enquirer.
Has so many thrilling passage^ and well-drnwn
characters, that you read iL with absorbed attention.
It cunnot 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 tho fear, tho toil
and tho suffering, that are there. She paints, with
a woman's delicate skill, the meek patience, the
long-abusod, but unchanging love of tho drunkard's
wife, touches the deepest chords of the heart, und
makes them vibrato with pity and with indignation.
Christian Herald.
Though Mrs. Collins has already hosts of admi
rers of Lcr literary productions, this work, we pre
dict, will increase that number ten fold, and give
her a reputation worthy of her high talents.? AVic
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 thoy are exposed, iu forming alliances with
the fashionable in high lifo.?Ohio Oigan.
A deeply interesting and powerful work. It vivid
ly portrays some of tho terrific exploit* of strong
drink in both high and low lifo. Nor are such scenes
as it depicts either imaginary or few. Let this book
circulate. It has a beneficent aim, und is tho vehicle
of admirably old and most salutary lessons.?Pres

to bold tho torch to such a dark recess of human
woe.?Daily Times.
We know of no passage, anywhere, more uniq-cly
beautiful, mure intensely absorbing, more overpow
ering in the pathetic, than the thirty-fourth chapter.
It is indeed a gem. We doubt whether tho celebra
ted chapter devoted to the doath of Eva, in Uncle

Such a Paper is demanded by the Farming
Community.
The publishers confidently believe that the agri
culturisU of this country are becoming too much
awake to the demands of their own calling to be
longer satisfied with the slow monthly issuos of a pa
per professedly devoted to their interests, or to trust
alone to the irresponsible extract* in a"lartneri
column," so popular just now in papers chiutly devo
ted to businoss, politics, or literature; and they look
for the united support of all the intelligent farmers
of thi&country in their continued ollbrt to furnish a
weekly paper of a high and reliable character, which
shall be progressive, and at the samo tlmo cautious
and conservative in all its teachings.
Essentially an Agricultural Paper.
The Apri.ru/tHriM will not depart from its legiti
mate sphere to catch popular favor by lumbering np
its pages, with the silly, fictitious litorature, and
light, miscellaneous matter df tho day ; it hoc 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
dne share of attention. The humbugs and nostrum!
afloat in the community will be tried by reliable sci
entific rules, and their worthlcssnoss exposed. It ia
the aim of the publishers to keep this paper under
the guidance of those who will make it a standard
work, which shall communicate to ita readers only
that which Is safe and rellahle.
An Independent Journal.
The American Agriculturist stands upon its own
merits; and the truthfulness, r.cal, and ability,
which it brings to the support of the interests of the
farmer. It is untrammeled by any collateral busi-.
ness connections whatever; nor U It the organ of any
clique, or the puffing machine of any man or thing.
Thoroughly independent in all points, its ample pa
ges are studiously given alone to the support and ?m
provemont of the great agricultural claaa.
