GRAHAM'S is the oldest and most populw
of the American Literary JVacazines. Th
nuuiber for Janaary, 1843. will be the first of the
35th volume. ' Its long and universally successful
career, from its commencement with a few lion
dred subscribers, ontil the present time, when it
has a circulation of fifty thousand copies a month,
is perhaps as good an evidence of its great and in
creasing merit as the publisher has it in his power
to offer. To his old subscribers, he trasts no as
surance are necessary of his determination to
maintain its present ascendancy over all the rival
periodicals of the country. The engagement, du
ring the past year, of snch men as Bar ant, Coop
er, Dana, Lonufei.i.ow, Hoffman, Mancub,
etc., of high reputation in tho literary world, as
regular contributors, in addition to a previous list
embracing many of the first names in the nation, is
a sufficient guarantee that the work will continae
to be the principle medium of communication be
tween ths best aathors and the publio. Among
tho attractions of the thirty-fifth volume, will be
veral Talks by JVr J. F. Cooper, Jlr Grattoj,
r Hoffman, Mr Herbert, Miss Leslie, Mary
Clarers,'1 Mrs, Embury, Mrs Ellct and Mi Ste
phens; poems by Mr Bryant, Mr Dana, Mr
Longfellow, Mr Street, Mrs Seba Smith, Mrs
Osgood, and Mrs Sigourney ; essays by Mr Fay,
Mr Jones, Mr Thukerman, Mr Poe, etc. etc,
Here follows a more full list of the names of
contributors, the most distinguished of the country
which we omit for want of room.
Graham's Lady's and Gentleman's Magazine
has been from u es'ablishment more than any
otner tiie lavorite periodical of the greater sex.
Though its plan does not entirely exclude articles
of the most important character, soch as have rai
sed Islackwood s and some other foreign journals
to their high influence and reputation, its pages
will be principally devoted to what is usually term
ed light literature. It will be distinguished from
other publications of similar aims by the literary
and artistic mentor its contents. While those of
other works are unknown qr anonymnns, the con
tributors to this are tlia most eminent authors of
ouraga and coantryj the v.ery cieators, founders,
of o'r National Literature. Especially is it cel
ebrated as containing the choicest prodactions of
the finest female writers of the time. Kvciv num
ber contains gems which maybe appealed to with
Splendid. Embellishments. -
In the department ofEngravings it is well known
that Graham's Magazine has far surpassed any
periodical work ever published in this or any oth
er country. The highest ambition of rival pub
lishers seem thus far to have been to maiotain a
respectable imitation of the numerous costly and
beautifnl works of art with which the successive
numbers of this journal have been graced. In the
coarse of the succeeding volumes jnany important
new features will be introduced. Sartin and Sadd
the most celebrated Mezzotint Engravers in the
Union, and equals of the best in Europe, will con
tinue to furnish their exqnisite prodactions.' and
Ilawdon, Wright and Hatch, G Parker, A L
Dick, Gimbredge, Jackman, Jones and others, of
New York, and Dodson, Welch and Waters,
-Tucker and others, of Philadelphia-all among the
most eminent line engravers of the present centu
ry, have been engaged to furnish a succession of
highly finished steel engravings, superior to any
thathave hitherto appeared in periodicals. Among
the pictures that will be engraved for for the vol
umes in 1843, are several Original Paintings,
by Ingham, Inman, Cole, Thompson, Freeman,
r ranqumet, and other distinguished artists. I he
American periodicals have hitherto contained,
save in a very few instances, only engravings cop
ied from foreign prints. The publisher of Gra
ham's Magazine will be the first to reform the
practice, and to make his work strictly original
in its embellishments as well as in its literary con
tents. Our Portrait Gallery. One of the new fea
tures of the coming volumes tcill be the introduc
tion of Portraits of the cootribotors to Graham's
Magazine, which of course, will include nearly
ail the eminent writers oi tne aay. l ne nn toi
amcwill include, from the burins of Parker, John
son and others, portraits engraved in the highest
style of the art of Mr Cooper, Professor Longfel
low, Maria Del Occidents,' Mrs Sigourney, Miss
Sedgwick, Mrs Seba Smith, Mrs Embury and sev
eral others-all from paintings executed expressly
for the purpose.
The Editorial Department will continue
to embrace notes on current literature etc, and re
views of all new American and foreign wor'K9 D
general interest or valae. The criticises of Gra
ham's Magazine are acknowledge jn all parts o
the country to be superior in e.umen, honesty and
independence to those any fontemporary.- In
deed, while a ITiarity of the monthly and quar
terly journal; nave become mere advertising medi
ums to; f0T the booksellers, in which every thing
l"in print' is indiscriminately praised, this period
ical is looked upon as a just and discriminating ar
biter between authors nd reader, in which both
have implicit confidence.
Graham's.Magazine will be published on the
first of each month in every quarter of I e Union.
The most distant subscribers will therefore receive
it on that day, as well as those who reside in Phil-
l adelphia. The proprietor being more desirous of
presenting the best and most oeautuui man tne
cheapest work in the country, and anxious to bring
it within the reach of all, offers the following as
the lowest terms at which it can be afforded
