Trade. Order* solicited. Copies sent by mail, pre

The above work la a delineation of the scene* ana
inoidenta connected with the imprisonment, in 1862
of Manuel Pereira, steward of the British brig Jan
son, in the jail of Charleston, S. 0.
The following notice of this work is eopied from the
Niuioual Era of February 17:
"The above is the title of a work now in press
founded upon that infamous statute of South Carolina,
by which her citixens claim a right to imprison colored
mavun, of all nations, and even those out upon their
shores in distress. We have perused the book in ad
vanoe of its publication, and find that it gives a life
like picture of Pereira, the vessel in which he sailed,
the storms she encountered, and her wrecked condition
when brought into the port of Charleston, R. C.; to
gether with the imprisonment of Pereira, several sea
men belonging to the New England States, and two
French seamen; the prison regimen, character of the
Charleston police, and the mendacity of oertain offi
cials, who make the law a medium of )>eoulation. The
work is replete with incidents of Southern life and
character, pointing Southerners to the things that oall
for correction at their own hands, with a force that
cannot be mistaken. The work is written by one who
ha? taken a prominent part in the affairs of the South,
u.ud cannot fail to interest alike the general reader,
commercial man, and philanthropist."

Extract from the Preface:
" The books aro intended to be books of instruc
tion, rather than of mere amusement; and, in peru
sing them, the reader may feel assured that all the in
formation which they contain, not only in respect to
the 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 young travellers meet with, is in most strict
accordance with fact The main design of the narra
tive is thus the communication of useAil knowledge;
and everything which they contain, except what is
strictly personal, in relation to the actors in the story,
may be depended upon as exactly and scrupulously
true." Published by

whioh more power is obtained without increase ot

Sik : I have much pleasure in giving an account
of the Gold Compensation Lever Watch No, 3,826,
you have made for me. and in which I expressly stip
ulated that it should maintain a uniform rate ot going
under every variety of motion and climate. 'Ibis it
has done in a most remarkable manner; Its rate of
going for the first six months was five seconds per
monUi, and in the next six months it changed its rate
a little faster, via : eight seconds per month, and at
the end of 366 days it was found to be fast of Green
wich mean time one minute and fifteen seconds.
Though I was not led by any previous promise to ex
pect such performance, yet 1 believe it is only the
usual character of your improved watches, which you
term your " dew series."

" If any Bute deems the retail and internal traffic
in ardent spirits injurious to iu eitisens, and calcu

ON or before the 1st of January, 1854, the Execu
tive Committee of the New York S,tate Tewpor
rance Society will issue the first number of a Month
ly Temperance Journal, under the title of " T m ? Pro
Its SizK.?It will be printed on a double medium
sheet, making eight quarto pages, of four oolumns to
a page; and, excluding advertisements, each number
will contain an amount of reading matter equal at
least to that furnished by our larger-sired daily jour
nals, or to that of an ordinary duodecimo volume oi
150 pages.
Irs Object.?To advocate the Cause of Touipcr
anoe generally, and especially the Legislativj Prohibi
tion of the Traffic in Intoxicating Beverages, to pre
pare the minds of the masses for such Prohibition, l>y
showing its expediency and Necessity, and to secure,
by all tho influence it may legitimately exert, the
vigorous enforcement of Prohibitory Laws when ob
tain od.
Its Field.?Dealing with general principles, with
argument* alike applicable to evory community where
the traffic exists, and with facts illustrative of theac
arguments and principles, the paper will be NatiotnU
in its spirit, in its scope, in its purpose, and, we trunt,
it will be National in its circulation and influence.
Such is our aim and expectation. Wo desire to see
the Principle of Prohibition established in State after
Btato, till it becomes the recognised policy of the Na
tion. It is onr ambition to bear a part in this great
work, and to this end Thk Prohibitiosikt is estab
lished, not as the organ of a society merely, but of a
Ghkat Kkformatohv Movemrn r.
Its Necessity.?The existing Temperance Jour
nals have little, if any, oiroulation outside of the Tem
perance Ranks. Their price almost nocessarily re
stricts them to tho friends of the cauno. Tiik Pko
hibitionist is designod for oiroulation (instead of
tracts) among the indifforent and the hostile. For
this purpose it is put at a prioe so low as to enable
the friends of Temperance in every school district, by
combined action and at an inconsiderable expenne,
to place a copy in each family that will consent to re
ceive it.
Its Prick.?One cQpy for one year - - $0 50
Three, to one address, one yo?r 1 00
Seven do. do. - - 2 00
And for each additional four copies, $1.00 will bo
added, for any quantity less than fifty copies.
l'or fifty copies to one address - - $11 00
For 100 do. do. >? - - 20 00
No subscription received for loss than one year,
and in every case tho order must be accompanied by

The paper will be under the general direction of
the Executive Committee, who have reeeived ample
assurances of literary aid trom 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 addressed to O. Scovill, Pub
lishing Agent, Albany.
Communications for the paper, or in relation to tho
interests of the cause generally, should be direoted to
Win. H. Burleigh, Corresponding Secretary.

IS 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
every two weeks?on every other Thursday; thereby
riving 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 holvday pieces, and, in short, every variety of
music adapted to purposes of religions worship, to
public occasions, and to the home circle; all of wnioh
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 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 Bastings, and Lowell Mason;
and its circle of correspondence, home and foreign,
is complete. The Review 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 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 six eopies for
five dollar*, always in advance.
(ET* The music alone in a volume would cost over
five dollars in the nsual form. Beside this, tnere 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 surely xubscribe.

Periodical of sixteen large quarto pages, making
an anuual volume of 832 pagos of nearly double the
sise of those in the first ton volumes of the Agricul
It is beautifully printed with type cast expressly
for it, and on tho best of clear while paper, with wide
margin, so that tho numbers can be easily stitched
or bound together.
A copious Index is weekly added, which will bo
fully ainplifiod at the end of the year, for the bound
Comprehensive in its Character,
Each volume will contain all matter worth record
which transpires either at home or abroad, and
which can serve to instruct or interest the Farmer,
the Planter, the Fruit-Grower, tho Gardener, and
the Stock-Breoder; thus making it the most com
plete and useful Agricultural Publication of the day.
Correct and valuable Market Reports.
The Markets will bo carefully reported, giving tho
actual transactions which take place from week to
week, in Gra?n, Provisions, Cattle, Ac.; thus keep
ing our readers constantly and reliably advised as to
tboir interests. During the past year, the knowledge
obtained from these Market Reports alone has saved
our readers thousands of dollars, by informing them
of tho best time to sell or purchase.
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 their own calling to bo
longer satisfied 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 chicily devo
ted to businoss, politics, or literature; and they look
for the united support of all the intelligent farmers
of this oountry in tneir continued effort to furnish a
weeklv paper of a high and reliable character, which
shall be progressive, and at the sauie 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, with the silly, fictitious literature, and
light, miscellaneous matter of the day; 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 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 worthlessness exposed. It is
the aim of the Dublishers to keep this paper under
the guidance of those who will make it a standard
work, which shall communicate to its readers only
that which is safe and reliable.
An Independent Journal.
The American Agriculturist stands upon its own
merits; and the truthfulness, zeal, and ability,
which it brings to the support of the interests of the
fkrmer. It is untrainmeled by any collateral busi
ness connections whatever; nor is it the organ of any
clique, or the puffing machine of any man or thin*.
Thoroughly independent in all points, its ample pa
ges are studiously given alone to the support and im
provement of the great agricultural class.
Editorial Department.
The American Agriculturist is under the editorial
supervision of Mr. A. B. Allen, its principal editor
for the past ten years, and Mr. Orange Judd, A. M.
a thoroughly practical fanner and agricultural
They wil| be assisted by Prof. Nash, who has been

pleasing and instructive writer on gardening and
other departments of practical agriculture, and in
addition to thtee, a number of other eminent agri
cultural writers. ^
AH the editors are men practically experienced in
tbeir profession, each of whom can handle the Plow
as well as the Pen.
