Lata and Important Reduction in Postage. We congratulate our subscribers and the treading public generally, on the cheapness with which they can now receive our re i prints by mail. The postage hitherto al though gradually reduced since ISi l has always operated as a discouragement to their circulation in places inaccessible by expresses or other modes of regular private conveyance. Hence as yet they have ob tained but a comparatively meagre mail cir culation. We hope, now that the postage Is merely nominal, a new impetus will be given to these valuable works, and that no Post Office within the United States will remain unvisited by one copy at least of the Four Keviews and lilackwood's Maga zine, To show the great reduction in the rates of postage since 1841, we subjoin the fol lowing table : Prior to 1815 the postage on Blackwood Tvas $2 40, on a Review $1 10 ; IS 15 to 1S51 Blackwood $1 00, a Review $0 50; 1851 to 1852 Blackwood $0 75, average distance, a Review $0 3S; IS52 commen cing Oct. 1st., Blackwood $0 24, all dis tances, a Review $0 12. . The postage on Blackwood and the Four Reviews is now but 72 cents a year. Trior to 1843 it was $G 80 ; the subscription price of Blackwood at the same time was five dollars a year.

BUOSPECTUa OK THE Southern Literary Messenger for 1851 Eighteenth Volume. This popular and favorite magazine, which was established in the year 1S31, and has outlived, with a single honorable exception, all its competi tors, will enter upon a new volume in Jan uary next. Although it is departing from the usual course of the editor to publish a list of con tributors, he begs to call the attention of the Southern people to the following names, all of them Southern, which he is at liberty to mention as enlisted in behalf of the Messenger under his management : Lieut. M. t . JMuury, 1'rol. 11. A. Wash ington, Ceo. trederick Holmes, Wm. M. Burwell, Rev. Sidney Dyer, Rev. M. I). Hoge, J. M. Legare, J. A. Turner, Mrs. Anna Pevre Dinnies, Miss Margaret Jun kin, Prof J. T. L. Preston, Prof. Geo. E. Dabney, M.R.H. Garnett, John B. Dab ney, Rev. C. R. Vaughan, Dr. J. C McCabe, Dj. S. 1L Dickson, J ude A. B. Meek, Car oline Howard, Col. P. St. Geo. Cock, U. S. Dragoons Prof. Sehelle De V'ere, Ciurles Campbell, Hugh R. Pieasants, Ilcv. Wm. II. Foote, Rev. J. 11. Bobock, W. Gila.ore Simms, Hon. Judgn B. F. Porter, Mrs. E. H. Evans, Miss Susan Archer Tallev. The Messenger is also furnished with articles from Northern contributors, such as H. C. Tuckerrnan, Esq., Ik Marvel, W. S. XV. Ruschenberger, U. S. N.; Miss Anne E. Lvnch, R. H.Stoddard, Esq., Miss Mary E. Hewitt, D. P. Baihydt, Mrs. E. J. bames, and others. The Messenger, however, has never res ted its claims to public favor upon the names of its contributors, but only upon the basis of solid excellence. Several of the most popular works of the dav were originally prepared for the Messenger and published in its pages, among which may be mentioned, Ik Marvel's 'Reveries ot a Bach elor,' and Tuckerman's 'Characteristics of Literature.' To the Southern people it appeals strong ly as the acknowleged literary organ ot the Southern States. The editor is dbteimined to make it worthy of the South and of the country. The contents, as heretofore, will embrace reviews, historical and biographical sketch es, novels, tales, travels, essays, poems, crit iques, and papers on the army, navy, and national subjects. The Messenger will also eontmue to pre sent articles of scientific character, such as during past years have excited the most marked attention on both sides of the Atlantic The Paris correspondent of the Messen ger will, as heretofore, occasionally supply, the latest intelligence in literature, science and art, from tho French capital. Of the editorial and cntical department of the Messenger, the editor will only say that it will embrace copious notes on the current literature, an 1 reviews of all new American or foreign works of general in terest and value. His opinions will at letsi be always fearlessly and honestly avowed. Terms. $5 per annum, invariably in advance. JNO. R. THOMPSON, Ed. and Pro. Arthur's Home Gazette for 1852. 80 Copies for twenty dollars, and one copy additional to the agent orgetter-up of the club. From all sides has come the spontaneous acknowledgment, that the "Home Gazette" has thus far been the purest and best family newspaper published in the Unite! State; but, with this testi mony has also come the over and over again repeated wish that we would reduce the club prices so low that persons ol mod erate means could, by forming large clubs, procure the Home Gazette for one dollar; the price at which so many papers can now be obtained. To this desire we have yield ed, and have a'so reduced the whole range of club prices, so that as Small a number as four persons, by joining in a club, can get the paper for $1 25 each, . With the new year will be commenced a new story or nouvellette, by tho editor, en titled "sparing to spend; or, the "lotions and the pinkertons," in which the wisdom of true economy in all persona! and. do mestic relations will be set forth and prac tically illustrated in the author's peculiar manner. As heretofore, the original contributors to the "Home Gazette" will be among the best writers of our country terms, in advance. One copy, per annum, - - $ 2 Two copies, per annum, ... 3 Three, ... - - - 4 Fcur, - - - - 5 Eight, (andonctothegettcr-upof the club,) 10 Thirteen copies, per annua, " 15 Twenty, " " " " " 20 T03 Thus it will be seen, that whero a club of twenty unite and take the "Home Gazette," the price paid by each subscriber will only be $1 a year, while the gettcr-up of the club will receive a copy in addition for his trouble. DC Postmasters and oth ers who wUi to make up clubs of twenty of one dollar each, can, in order to facilitate the reception of the paper by those who first enter the club, send 10 for ten copies, and the remaining $10 when the club it full, at which time the extra copy for get ting up the club will be forwarded. ' Address T. 8. Arthur fc CO., No. 107 Walnut Street, l'hi'a. The Arthur's Home Magazine. The cheapest and the best yet offered! Eighty piiges per month of choice reading matter for 82 a year, or in clubs of four at only $ 1 25 per annum. The "home magazine" was commenced October 1S52 : the editor is T. S. Arthur, in whose bauds is the entire editorial charge of the work. A new noveiletie from his pen was commenced in the first number. entitled "tho old mans bride." This story is continued through the first four numbers of tho magazine, from Octo ber to January. With the February num ber another new story by Mr. Arthur, enti tled "sparing to spend ; or, the loftons and the pinkertons," will be commenced, to be continued during several months. Thus, in the first volume of the home magazine, two nouvellettes by the editor will be pub lished. As only a limited edition of the first numbers ot the magazine was printed, those wisl.iug "the old man's bride" mus send in their subscriptions early. EG3 In order to prevent misapprehension on the part of the public, we will here state that the home magazine is a monthly issue of tho home gazette, and contains the best articles that tppear therein, thus fixing in permanent shape and for ciiculation in new channels, literary matter irom the pens of many of the ablest writers in the country. It is from this cause that the publishers are able, in the outset, to furnish the work at so low a rate. TERMS OF ARTHUR'S HOME HAOAZIXE.

Literary and pictorial; the book of the Nation and Arts Union ot America ! Immense increase of reading matter with out reducing the number of full page Steel engravings. It is useless for the publisher of Coder's Ladv's Book to make any great parad ol 1 what he intends to do. The work has I been before tho public for twentVrtbre j years, and it is a well-known fact I. the' latter numbers of a year are always" superi or to the commencing ones, as he improves with the expense with which each month brings him, seizing every new feature of the day and imparting it to his subscribers through thesuccessive numbersof the book. Nothing but real worth in a publication could be the cause of so prolonged an exis tence, especially in the literary world. J where everything is so evanescent. Uun dreds of magazines have been started, and, after a short life, havo departed where the "Lady's Book" alone stands triumph ant, a proud monument ruirod by the Lad dies of America as a testimony of their own worth. Many persons, who seek no further than our title, presume that the "Lady's Book" ' intended merely for the amusement of a. . class, and that it does not enter into the discussion of those more important ques tions connected with tho realities and the ; duties of life which every well-informed ! woman, moihsr and daughter, should ba acquainted with. But such is not the fact ' It U now, ai it has ever Lcc:i, out constant i-a:e to combine, in tii? p.fges of tlia "L j dy's Boo!;," whatever it useful, whattver Is (pure, dignified, a'ld virtuous ij Efnliir.entr i with whatever ma alLrd ra:wnii and la jnocent amusement. The expense of one rurnjer of the "La dy's Book," including steel engraving and literary matter, paid for, not taken from English magazines, far exceedi that of any other magazine published in this country. We make no exception, and are willing to have the fact tested. Godey's splendid engravings on steel. Remember that Godey gives more than four times as many steel engravings motnh Iv as any other magazine. It is the fashion with many magazines to announce in their advertisements, "splendid engravings, fash, ion plates," &c. What U tho disappoint ment of the duped subscriber when he re ceives the numbers of a magazine thus ad vertised, to find his fine engravings are but common wood-cuts as poor in design aa in execution! The publisher of the "lady's Look" performs all he promises, and, as soma of our exchanges are kind enough to say, "more than he promises" Each number of the "lady's book' contains at least three engravings from steel plates, engraved by the best artists, either in line, stipple, or mezzotint, and sometimes four. Godey's reliablo fashion plates ara published monthly, and are considered the only really valuable fashion plates, that are published. They have: been, the standard for over twenty-two years, in addition to the above, every jnonth selections from the following arei van,, with simple directions that all may un derstand : Undoubted receipts, model cottages,, model cottage furniture, patterns for window curtains, music, crochet work, knitting, netting, patchwork, crochet flower work, hair braiding, ribbon work,, chenille work, lace collar work, chil dren's and infant's ctothes, capes, caps, chemisettes in fine, everything that can interest a lady will find its appropriate place in her own book.
