GRAHAM'S is the oldest and most popular
of the American Literary .Magazines. The
number for January; 1843, will be the first of the
33th volame. Its long and universally successful
career, from its commencement with a few hon
dred subscribers, until the present time,hen 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 inhis power
to offer. To his old subscribers, he trusts no as
surance are .necessary of his determination to
maintain its present ascendancy over all the rival
periodicals of the coontry. The engagement, do
ring the past year, of snch men as Bar ant, Coop
er, Dana, Longfellow, Hoffman, Maxcur,
etc., of high reputation in the 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 continue
to be the principle medium of communication be
tween the best authors and the publio. Among
the attractions of the thirty-fifth volume, will be
s-weral Tales by Mr J. F. Cooper, Jlr Gralton,
Jr Hoffman, Mr Herbert, Miss Leslie, lMary
Oarers, Mrs, Embury, Mrs Ellet and Mrs Ste
phens; poems by Mr Bryant, Mr Dana, Mr
Jsongfelloir, Mr Street, Mrs Scba Smith, Mrs
Osgood, and Mrs Sigourney ; essays by Mr Fay,
Mr Jones, Mr Tuckerman, Mr Poe, etc. etc.
I Here follows a more full list of the names of
contributors, the most distinguished ol tne country !
Graham's Lady's and Gentleman's Magazine
has been from its es'ablisdiment more than any
other the fat-orite periodical of the greater sex.
Though its plan does not entirely exclude articles
-of the most important character, sach as have rai
sed Blackwood'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 merit of its contents. VVhil? those of
other works are unknown qr anonymons, the con
tributors to this are the most eminent amhors of
our age and country ; the very cieators, founder!1,
of our National Literature. Especially is it cel
ebrated as containing the choicest prodoctions of
the finest female writers of the time. Kveiy num
ber contains gems which may be appealed to with
pride by the sex as vindicating their intellectual
eminence. - .
In the department of Engravings it is well known
that Graham's Magazine has far surpassed any J
pertefltcal work vr poblisjisd. in 4f4 wny ot
cr country. 1 he nignesi amoiwon oi rivui jmu- i
lisher3 seem thus far to have bacn to mai-tiiti a j
respectable imitation ot the nimsrou cosvly and j
beautiful works of art with whicti the successive ,
nunibeT3 of this journal have been graced. In the;
coarse of the succeeding volumes many important '
new features will be introd
incea. martin anu oacia ,
the most celebmed Mezzotint Engravers in the ;
Union, and eqaals of thebest in Europe, will con- j
tinueto furnish their exqnisite productions.' and i
Hawdon, Wright and Hatch, G Parker, A L
Dick, Gimbredge, Jackman, Jones and others, of j
New York, and Dodson, Welch and aters,
Tucker and others, of Philadelphia-all among the
liavo heeo ino-arfifl to furnish a success on of
highly finished steel engravings, superior lo any
that have hitherto appeared in periodicals. Among
the pictures that will be engraved for for the vol- j
umes in 1843, are several Origin l Paintings, i
by Ingham, Inman, Cols, Thompson, Freeman, j
Franquinet, and other distinguished artists. The
Amarican periodicals have hitherto contained,
save in a very few instances, only engravings coj)
ied from foreign prints. Tlie pnbl i she r 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. Oan PuitTRAjT GAi.LF.RV.-One of the new fea
tures of the coining volumes K-ill be the introduc
tion of Portraits of the contributors to Graham's
Magazine, which of course, will include nearly
all the eminent writers of the day. The 3")th vol
omewill 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 DelOccidente,' Mrs Sigou ne. 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 works of
general interest or valne. The criticisms of Gra
ham'4s Magazine are acknowledged in all parts o
tlie country to be superior in acumen, honesty and
independence to those of any contemporary. In
deed, while a majority of the monthly and quar
terly journals have become mere advertising medi
ums for for the booksellers, in which every tning
'in print' is indiscriminately praised, this period
ical is looked upon as a just and discriminating ar
biter between authors md readers, in which both
have implicit confidence.
Graham's Magazine will be published on the
first of each month in every quarter of t e Union.
The most distant subscribers will therefore receive
it on that day, as well a those who reside in Phil
adelphia. The proprietor being more desirous of
presenting the best and most beautiful than the
cheapest work in the coantry, and anxions to bring
it within the reach of all, offers the following as
the lowest terms at which it can be afforded
Three Dollars per annum in advance for a sin
