By Engravers of the first Eminence.
The Vesperus will 'interfere with no
Sectarian or Political matter, nor will any
thing of an Immoral tendency ever find "a
place in its columns. It will be connected
with no other American Publication; will
contain no advertisements, but on the con
trary be filled with the choicest original
tt selected matter.
The National taste has become so re
fined that nothing of an inferior can en
sure patronage ; and in order, therefore,
to compass so desirable an object as the
publication of a book chiefly devoted to
light and humorous reading, at the eame
time a high moral tone throughout, the
proprietor has embatked on hazardous
undertaking, solely relying on the super!
or character of the work for an extensive
sale which alone can renumerate him
fcr the pecuniary risk. Its estimated
that upwards of $1500 will be expended
on the work in one year for Engravings
alone.
TERMS.
The Vesperus will be printed on fine
white paper, with beantiful new type, in
the quarto form expressly for binding.

cation, No. 9 Kilby street, every Satur

making it the cheapest as well as the
handsomest paper of its kind in America.

Tittle Page and an Index will be given to
each subscriber.
Agents are wanted in every city, town
and village In the U. S. and British Prov
inces, to whom a net liberal per cent age'

Graham's Is thr oldest k most popular of the
American Literary Magazines. The number for
January, 1843, will be the first of the 3ith vol
ume. Its long and uniformity successful career,
from its commencement with a few hundred sub
scribers, until the present time, when it has a cir
culation of 50,000 copies per month, is perhaps
us good an evidence of its great and constantly
increasing merit as the publisher has it in his pow
er to offer. To its old subscribers, he trusts, ns
assurances are necessary of his determination to
maintain its present ascendency overall the ri
val periodicals of the country. The engagement
