JS the cheapest and best Musical 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
?very two weeks?on every other Thursday, thereby
[iving more than twiee as muoh matter, without any
ncrease in prioe. Each number contains sixteen
quarto paces, four of which are new music, consist
i og of glees, hymn tunes, chants, anthems, dedication
and holvday pieees, and, in short, every variety of
musie adapted to purposes of religious worship, to
public occasions, and to the home oirole; all of which
will be of a practical character, and such as can t>e
sung by parsons of ordinary musioal 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 are George F. Root, William B.
Bradbury, Thomas Hastings, and Lowell Mason;
and its circle of correspondence, home and foreign,
is complete. The Reviow will also be a regular me
dium for the announcement of new musical publica
tions by all the leading publishing houses in the
Union. The subsoription list of this papor 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 musioal
paper ever published, must largely increase its al
ready unparalleled circulation.
Ternut. ? One dollar per annum, or six eopies for
five dollars, always in advance.
The musio alone in a volume would cost over
five dollars in the usual form. Beside this, tnere will
be an immense amount of musical news, essays, erit
icism, instruction, Ac., all for only one dollar! Ev
ery one foeling a particle of interost in the cause of
music will surely subscribe.

Such a Paper is demanded by the Farming
The publishers confidently believe that the agri
culturists of this country are becoming too much
awake to the demands of thoir owu calling to be
longer *%tisfied with the slow monthly issues of a pa
per professedly devoted to their interests, or to trust
alone to the irresponsible extracts in a"farmer'*
column," so popular just now in papers chiefly devo
ted to businoss, politics, or literature; and they look
for the united support of all the intelligent fanners
of this country in their continued effort to furnish a
weekly paper of a high and reliable character, which
shall be progressive, and at the sarno time cautious
and conservative in all its teachings.
Essentially an Agricultural Paper.
The Agriculturist will not depart from its legiti
mate sphere to catch popular favor by lumbering up
its pages, wfth the silly, fictitious literature, and
light, miscellaneous matter of the day; it has a high
er aim; and a small part only of its spaco will be
devoted to matters not immediately pertaining to the
great business of Agriculture. The household m
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 bo tried by reliable sci
entific rules, and their worthlessness exposed. It 1a
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 ils readers only
that which is safe and reliable.
An Independent Journal.
The American Agriculturist stands upon its own
merits; and the truthfulness, seal, and ablHty,
which it brings to the support of the interests of the
fhrmer. It is untrammeled 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 pa
ges are etodiously given aJono to the support and im
provement of the great agricultural class.

supervision of Mr. A. B. Allan,'its prineipal editor
