Srth J Todd, Corresipodding Si creiary
of tin Nat. Amet Ass. of the U S.,
C'iiy of Washington, D C.
W e mu-t say a lew wnrils to our sub
scribers in this City and elsewhere, on otir
pajnr anil the necessity of prtMiipt payments.
It lias been suggested to us In a staunch
I'rieod in the We-t, that if nur paper wen j
on the caa/i principle, Ire would itierense our,
list in a large extern .in his immediate negh-'
bnrhood. I his has induced us to think, J
(as other papers have succeeded when -tnrte d !
on this plan.) that it would not only be a \
benefit to iti individually , but justice to t th !
fioi'/ing subset liters, to adopt ihis s\ stem. It)
is better' lor us ami a surer guaranty to them,;
to have live hundred pityiiig subscribers,
than one lliouvjiid siiIimitbers?? only live!
hundred of p ,y their dues. Our loss1
i* 'hen heavy: whereis, if we have live!
bundled subscribers who pav regularlv. our i
loss is nothing?il we know we can carry mil
our paper with that number without thro v- !
ing ourselves in d<.-bi ; Hnd if we are willing)
to give our time for the benefit ol the
cause, it is better thai we should do so with !
five hundred g-od subscribers, than lot us to!
print a thousand copies, a ad have a debt acj
curing weeklv. We have iheiefore deter- !
mined, after the font of December next, to ail- j
here rigi ihj to (he cash system. i\'o paper j
will be sent out of this office, after that date,
on which the subscription is not paid. Wei
have to pay for every thing we use in hriii|<-;
i' g out our sheet; and we cannot aflord to'
lose half our dues?not indeed, any of them. I
All jiur bilis in this istrict will be sent out
before that lim?; and, if any subscriber
wishes to continue, he must pay up. I he
bill of each subscriber out of the city will be
pi teed in his paper, and we will expect a re
turn as soon as possible. > e give time to
nil; ami il ou^ "call" is not heeded, we will
cast them out of the vineyard. A Jen- hm e
established ami supported our paper by pr mtpt
payments, and we are determined that nmni/
shall notbre.ik it down. I?y a contrary eour.-e
e have no Association or party to bai k
U-, but have to make uttr own way in fbjr (?
sunshine. We have cleared the fog, and can
now see our way?and we hope no one uil
endeavor to uiar our sunny prospects. On '
some we have called again and again, but in j
vain? this resort is our safety-valve. We'
hope our friends will see the necessity of
a quick and cheerful response; and we pru-j
mise a renewi d energy for their gratification.
Our time for action has cu.ne, and all our
machinery must be free.
W e have been induced to make some little
deduction to six, ten, and larger numbers
of persons, who may club together and send
us their names and dig money for their sub
scriptions. W e do this for the benefit prin
' i pal 1 v of an x il iary societies, for two reasons?
first, to enable jhem to distribute information
cheap; and. secondly, t > induce our friends
to exert themselves to increase our circulation,
thereby giving our principles a fair showing.
We also offer the seventh copy gratis to any
person who will send us six subscribers, and
the money enclosed?all postage free. [See
terms on the fourth page."!
We hope our business friends will remem
ber us in the distribution of their favors. Our
room is sufficient for all ; and if it is not.we
can make it sn. Send in your advertisements,
and wc will insert them conspicuously, at
low rates, and [jive them a large city oircu
aiion besides.

We hope our subscribers a? a distance will
ttke advantage ol ibis mode of convoying
their baclt dues to this paper; and, at the
same time, of sending on a year's subscrip

|)R? >SPKC'f US.? IV undeisigiied contemplates
1 publishing hi Uiitct'y, a paper, tube called "Tub
M-ihit i>K !77ti,"lo bedrv 'Ifii al its title purpoits
to purely American interests, in all tlieii diveisihed
ramification*; embracing Agnculture, Manulac
lur-s, Commerce, the Mrdical Arts, auil every t>b
ject that can tend to our happiness, an a peop.e, and
our independence as a nation ; and arguing Hie ? n
tire repeal or modification of our naturalization
laws, hut with the slri test regard to the Constitu
tional rights o; our adopted citizens.
As a paper, the (spirit of I77ti will steer clear of
both the grt at political parties of the day. and will
pionounce an honest and unbiassed opinion oh men
and measure*. irrespective of party It Mill as
suiue the hroad ground, that with a country posses
sed of every variety of soil and climate?rich in
mineral w.-alth?and a people whose intelligence is
not surpassed by any nation under the canot>y of
Heaven, we possess within ouiselves all the ueces
sary elements of happiness and greatness, which
have only to be fostered and encouraged by wise
legislation. It will maintain that we*are capable
of governing ourselves; and pronouncing upon mea
sures nl national policy, without lorcign interfer
ence or dictation, or calling upon the overburthen
ed papulation of the old world, to decide the desti
ny of our infant and ^iant republic It is intended
also to make it a work, which will bo acceptable in
the drawing room, and the artist's studio, and hence
the lighter literature ol the day, and the progress ol
tti* arts which refine and adorn life, will have a
space in its columns, and nothing offensive to the
most fiiitidious delicacy v\ill find a place mi it.
As a commencement it is intended to publish it
once a week, at the low price of $ 1 50 pei annum,
payable half year.y in advance, (or to the carriers,
us they mat elect,) but to publish it semi-weekly,
and at last daily, as it becomes established. These
desirous of becoming sul.sciihers will please hand
in their name*, at ti.e office of the Suruly Morning

many copies or subscribers they will engage lor,

Literary Character.?The literary chara? ter of the
Casket is well kuo-vn. It is wholly original, of the!
highest order, and sustained by writers ol the first

Several Romances of the Revolution have already 1
appeared.and others shall follow in the course ol
the volume, presenting, When finished, a complete j
pi tine tf the manners, and a historical account ofi

We shall furnish the readers of the Casket with j

162 Nassau street, New York. Terms?#3 per
annum, in advauct.?Upon entering the second vol
ume of this pioneer in the introduction of papeis ol
its class, I lie publishers may be excuscd lor congra
tulating themselves upon the continued prosperity
and advancement ol their periodical, from the issue
of its liist number, to the prcteiil time. Aware that
couipetion is the life ot business, they expected and
have met with rivals?but those rivals have so far,
been essentia! aids to the publicity and circulation
of the Jonathan. New readers have been made,
where, comparatively, few existed helore, ami the
taste created for the elegant literature of the two
hemispheres carried into ail pans ol (he country and
made accessible to.all, has produced a demand for
the Brother Jonathan, which it is gratifying to Mate
is continually on the increase.
| With such additions to their resources and emolu
ments, the publishers has aimed to give a commen
surate incrci.se Jo thetalue and ? interests ol their
sheet. In addition to the labors of the gentlemen
whose names are anounced as editors, the publish
eis avail themselves constantly of the aid ol sucli
occasional conlributois as they can find space for.
For the foreign correspondence of the Jonathan,
the services ol Kane C. Pray, Jr., have been enga
ged; and his fine litnaiy taste will also be exercis
ed in the selection of things rare, new, and worthy
in the European literary mait. Selections from the
cream of the foreign magazines will of course be
MUSIC.?In the progress of improvement, anew
feature has been added to the Brother Jonathan?
the publication of new and popular music. Every
paper will contain something in this way, new and
pleasant?lefertnee being had in the.selection, ra
ther to sucli pieces as all can sing and play, than
to 'echerche com; ositions, suited only to the scien
tific.? A new loi t ol music type has been purcha
sed. and a gentleman engaged to superintend this
department, of excellent experience and knowledge
of music.?This will enable us to give music a pub
licity which it never enjoyed belore : to carry the
<anie themes loi carol to the sylvan maid in 'he far
tin ?t back woods, which delight the party in the
city drawing-room. A simultaneous popularity wil
thus be enjoyed all oveiy the country by such com
positions as arc adapted to the public taste, and wor
thy of the public lavor.
Whatever other improvements may suggest them
selves. w ill be adopted ; and no pains spared to
?rake the Jonathan a welcome visiter to all sorts o|
