• ^10 The reduction of the subscription price
Iron Three Dollars to 'I'wo marks an era in the
history of this popular and widely circulated Jour
nal—a j.urual which, though it hath seen many
changes during the twenty years of its existence,
lias obtained a high ami permanent place in the
annals of incrican Literature. It is peculiarly
gratifying to the publisher to he able to state that
scarcely a day now passes that docs not add to its
subscription list, nor a in til arrive that docs not
bring some favorable mention of it by contempo
rary journals.
The now and attractive feature of the present
volume is the publication of an original Novel of
groat interest, written expressly for the Mirror,
This beautiful story increases in interest as it pro
gresses, and no one. whose taste has not been per
verted by high spiced fictions of t he French school,
cm rcad a single chapter without a desire for the
whole of it. Cilculating on tho intrinsic excel
lence of the work to make its own popularity,
without the aid of puffing, we have laid aside a
few hundred complete sets of the present volume,
containing all th J chapters ns far as published,
and for which there it now a daily demand.
If w«; could only make up our minds an I our
mouths to blow our own trumpet, wo might easily
mile- noise enough about ‘ The School for Young
Widows’ to create an excitement in the public
mind, and arouse tho curious in literary mat'ets,
to a loud call for the anonymous author, lint we
much prefei to leave our readers to find out'thein
selves, what is good, without prompting. To pre
face every thing which appears in our columns
with a puff, would he quite as distasteful to our
sclves, as insulting to the judgment of the reader.
N> mm would thank his cook to stand behind his
chair while rating, and comment upon each dish
upon the table. As ‘good wine needs no bush,* and
good deeds no praise, so good book* and good din

i ne nory or 1 Mary htCkar is written by a lady
altogether unknown an an authoress, who has
thrown off this spontaneous production as the
flowers yield their perfume, and the birds sing
i theif songs, not for money or for fame, but, as the
j poet says,1 from Love’s excess’—the natural inflo
j rcsccnce of a true woman’s heart—
* Ity gentle feelings long subdued,
Stlbdued and cherished iong.’
1 he interest of the story mainly centres in the
cha-actcr of the heioinc, Clara Anncaloy, the
daoyhtcr ot a poor Fugtish Clergyman, who dies,
leaving the lovely orphan alone in the world, with
no inheritance but the fatal dower of beauty.
Like all heroines she is fair and sweet and good—
like VVoo'Isworth’s
‘ Lovely apparition sent
To he a moment’s ornament.’
She marries (an angel in romance would he stu
pid that diil not,) contrary to t he comm mils of her
dying father, and trouble commences. Hut we
must d sc.lose her history no farther except by
weekly instalments.
In additi m to this, the Weekly Mirror is mostly
made tip of original contributions of the highest
order of merit. Several able writers are regularly
employed in the various departments ot the p iper
—and, without boasting, we rnay sifcly challenge
for the Mirror, in its F-.says, Criticisms, Original
Poetry, Domestic and Foreign Correspondence,
ftc., fee.,comparison with any similar journal in
the f oiled Smte». In Moral*, as well as Litera

menting the muscular vigour, and promoting the

In Europe this medicine has long enjoyed the
reputation of curing all these troublesome com
plaints, subject to man, and in this country no in
stance <>f its failure has ever been known wherever
it has been introduced, provided the patient strict
ly adhere to the directions given.
It possesses however what may he justly called a
specific power in most constitutions, especially
when administered in the early and acute form of
the disease It moderates the infiamatory symp
toms in a shorter time, and with more certainty
than the majority ot the nauseating nostrums now
offered to the public.
A preparation, therefore like the present one and
possessing such medical properties, must when its
virtues arc found out, prove the great dosideratum
sought for, and from the general success attending
its use, must command a large and extensive cir
culation. Prepared and sold only by

An Important LcrTEa.—Read the following let

veracity, in whose word the most implicit confi

Wilmington, N. C., Jan 5, 1846.
I)r. Swnyne—Dear Sir—You will please send me
twelve dozen or more, as you sec fit, of your Syrup

a half dozen on band ; the sales are rapidly i-icreas
ing.anrl will, I have no doubt, continue to do so.
An acquaintance of mine called a few days ago to
say lie would give me a certificate of its good ef
fcct-t. He is from the country and a minister in
the Methodist Church. Shorily aft< r obtaining the
agency, 1 prevailed upon him t» try a bottle, though
I doubted whether any benefit could be derived, lor
lie, as well as myself, thought his ease was con
finned Consumption. In fact, every symptom was
indicative. Shoitly after, lie wrote me to send him
four or five bottles more. He came to town last
week. I will quote Ins own language. "Sir,”
said lie, “ 1 am a new man, nnd I consider it a du
ty 1 owe to the public to tell what Dr. Swaync’s
Compound Syrup of Wild Cherry has done for me.”
I w ill publish his certificate, and as he is generally
know n all over our section, I expect good results
from it.

W* have long regarded it nan most humiliating
reflection upon the south, that no professedly
neutral family journal has yci been su-tained with,
in her borders. We have tested tho experiment
whether such a paper could not be supported nt the
immediate South, and though not w holly unsuc
ccasful. our experience has taught us that the pc.
pers of this class published in the large Northern
cities, possess ad vantages over those of the roundy
which, in a measure, defy competition. But hero
the ease is different. B «llimoi e, standing ns it dots
on the frontier of the Southern Stales, is yet near
enough to the great commercial, literary and n0.
litical emporium, to he included in the neighbor
hood of great American cities, and to enjoy all the
advantages, as a radiating point, which are pos
sensed by either Philadelphia, Boston or New York.
A paper issued from Baltimore has all tlie far Hit
for obtaining tbe latest literary intelligcr ti, as
well as the current literature of the day, foreign
and domestic, that arc enjoyed by tire journals of
the Northern cities. Tho Western Continent is
da large, as cheap, and can he belter adapted to the
wants and tastes of Southern readers, than those Nor
thern papers whirl) now draw so large an arrotuit
ol their patronage from the Soother it public.
EnteHnining these views, we have looked with
confidence to tne success of the Continent. Eight
month’s experience has tended to strengthen that
confidence, and now we enter upon its publication
with a him conviction that all that is necessary to
secure for it a circulation coual to that of its North
ern coteinporaries, is a faiiliful and energetic de
votion or our best abilities to make it a useful and
entertaining Family Journal. It is our design lo
make the Western Continent emphatically a
Southern family paper, that may be read with in
terest and profit by every member of a Southern
firmly. With this view, we shall draw for our lit.
crary departnnent, from the beat sources, such ir.at*
ter as will interest and entertain ilie mind, with
out offending the taste or corrupting the morals ol
our leaders.
Pains will he taken to give the latest intelligence
on all subjects of interest to the genetal reader, to
ihe exclusion of the vast amount ol local matlCiT
such as personal gossip, police reports, theatrical
and other criticisms, which make up so largr a por
lion of the staple of some ol the popular weeklies
ot the North, lu u word, though we shall endea
vor to make our paper interesting to all. our chid
aim shall he to auupt it to the wants and tastes ol
the people of tho Mouth and South-West, upon
w'hom, and those of our own city who arc disposed
to sustain such a journal, we must mainly depend
for support.
Relying more upon the intrinsic merits of our pa
per, than on any promises we might make in a pros
pectus, w c will dose by appealing to the readers of
the Motijh and West lor a share of tl a patronage
which they s>> liberally bestow upon (he overgrown
