Some five or six weeks ago," we an.
nounced that we would publish five first
class novelettes, written expressly for the
''Dollar Newspaper." Four we had in
hand at the time, and the fifth has since
come into our possession. The first is now
neaj-Iy half through, and has everywhere
been 'pronounced a story of great merit.
The following is the order of publication:

Greatly increased in &ize, and improved
in elegance and merit. Edited by Mrs.
Ann S. Stephens, and Charles J. Peter
son. The great increase in the circulation
of this Magazine for 1S52, has determined
the publishers to sparo no expense for tho
ensuing year, in order still further to in
crease its list. Ho will therefore, add
greatly to the number of pages, without, as
other Magazines have done, decreasing tho
quantity or elegance of the embellishments.
The price, too, will remain a dollar less
than its coi nnporaries. As the postago
also, is less, ho looks for 100,000 subscribers
The fashions exclusively in this Maga
zine. This is now the only Magazine which
publishes colored steet-plate fashions regu
larly. To each is added a full letter-press
description, giving information on all tho
Latest-Styles, received direct from London
and Paris. All who wish to know tho real
fashions, must take this periodical. In our
Eastern cities, it Is tho only authority. To
the dress-maker, milliner, etc., it is invalu
able. Most readable and original of the mnga
zines. The literary department will bo
entirely original, instead of being made up,
as are all the other magazines, of second
rate English stories. During the last two
years, this magazine has been confessedly
the best in the country for Ladies. It has
published more brilliant talcs and novels in
that period, than all its cotemporaries to
gether. During 1S53, it will bo better
than ever. . Mrs. Ann S. Stephens, tho best
romance writer in America : tho nuthor of
"Dora Atherton," and others, will contrib
ute exclusively for 1S53. The domestip
stories for which this magazine is famous,
will bo continued from the pens of Ella
