Assisted ly many of the most popular Writers.
the publication of the May number, the
lO demand for the Ladils’ Companion lias
been unprecedented and beyond the most sanguine
anticipations. A: the commencement of the vol
ume an additional number of copies wore printed,
which was considered at the time adequate to sat
isfy all the orders which might be received, and
leave a considerable number on hand for subse
quent calls. The publisher is more titan gratilied
in stating that the whole edition was nearly ex
hausted before the issuing of the seventh number
of the volume; and at this time but very few com
plete sets remain on hand, to supply the numer
ous orders which are daily received from every
section of the United Ftates.
in consequence of this great unforeseen increase
of new subscribers, he has determined to double
the number of impressions lor the subsequent
year; while he most gratefully appreciates the un
precedented encouragement extended to the La
*» as* Companion, and at the same time he begs to
assure the readers ol' the Magazine and the pub
lic in general, that it is his ardent resolution to
meet it w ith a corresponding liberality on his part
to merit its continuance.
.Splendid Stull Engravings by our best ar
tists, accompany each number—illustrated by
Tales and spirited Sketches—w hich will, as here
tofore, continue magnificent and far superior to

The Ladies’ Companion contains a larger quan
lily of reading than any other magazine issued iu
this country, and iis subscription price is only
three doUms a year, while, the great combination
of talent secured (or the coining year will render
it unequalled by any other periodical.
Its Literary Character ! will undergo con
siderable change, as the publisher of the Ladies’
Companion, in order to show his appreciation of
the public favor already extended to him so liber
ally, lias secured the aid of Mrs. ANN S. STE
PHENS, late Editor of the ‘Portland Magazine,’
and author of a series of the most beautiful and
popular tales ever presented to an American
public. No lady possessing greater variety of tal
ent, or better calculated to aid in conducting a
Ladies’ Magazine, could have been selected from
the galaxy of female genius w hich is the glory of
our country. In addition to the powerful talents
ot Mrs. Stephens, the proprietor has secured a
list ot contributors, which combined will render
the Ladies’ Companion one of the most interesting
and talented Magazines of the day.

This department of the Ladies’ Companion has
ever commanded a large share of attention, and
been looked upon with no little interest by its rea
ders, and more especially the Ladies, whom the
publisher is iu the highest degree anxious to
please. It will continue to be a subject of more
tlrm usual care to him, and to tne Professor,
under whose supervision it is placed, to make that
portion of the magazine Blotted to Music, more
than ever deserving ol the countenance of every
loNer of music. It has ever been and w ill coiitin
ue to be the desire to have all pieces of Music
printed correctly and free from errors.
The Work in General. Over every depart
ment an equally careful supervision will be strict
ly exercised by the Editors, and all appropriate
expenditures will be liberally bestowed, a • it is the
design of the publisher, with the aid of his con
tributors and the advice ot his friends to make the
Ladies' Companion distinguished for the beauty
and accuracy of its typography ; the variety and
high tone oj its literary articles; the quality and
value of its music ; and the unequalled splendor
of its Pictokal Embellishments.
It is the determination [of the publisher to use
every means to maintain the superiority which
the Ladies’Companion has obtained. For four
yeais he has steadily pursued a course of improve

cilities are such as to give the Ladies’ Companion
eminent advantages over all other publications of

extant. The flattering and general testimonials
ot nearly every cotemporarv journal in tlm United
.States, and in fact, many on the other side of the
Atlantic, have strongly asserted the undeniable
claims of the Ladies’ ('oinpaniou to the support
of the public generally. There is no work that

rg HI IS is a monthly Magazine, devoted ehicliv
to Literature, but occasionally finding
room also for articles that fall within the scope of
Science; and not professing an entire disdain of
tasteful selections, though its matter has been, as
it will continue to be, in the main, original.
Parly Politics, and controversial Tlualogn, as
far as possible, are jealously excluded. They are
sometimes so blended with discussions in litera
ture or in moral science, otherwise unobjection
able, as to gain admittance for the sake of the
more valuable matter to which they adhere: but
whenever that happens they are incidental, onl V ;
not primary. They arc dross, tolerated only be
cause it cannot well lie severed from tire sterling
ore wherewith it is incorporated.
Reviews and C ritical Notices, occupy their
due space in the work: and it is the Editor’s aim
that they should have a threefold tendency—to
convey, in a condensed form, such valuable truths
or interesting incidents as are embodied iu Uie
works reviewed,—to direct the readers attention
to books that deserve to be read—and to warn
lnm against wasting time and money upon that
large number, which merit only to be burned. In
this age of publications that by their variety and
multitude, distract and overwhelmn every undis
criminating student, impartial criticism, gov
erned by the views just mentioned, is one ofthe
most inestimable and indispensable of auxiliaries
to him who docs wish to discriminate.
Essays and Tales, having in view utility or a
nniscmcnt, or both—Historical sketches and
Rkminisences of events too minute for History,
yet elucidating it, and heightning its interest
may be regarded as forming tlm staple of the
w ork. And of indigenous Poetry, enough is
published—sometimes of no mean strain—to
ifest and to cultivate the growing poetical taste
and talents of our country.
The times appear, for several reasons, to de
mand such a work—and not one alone, but many.
Ihe public mind is feverish and irritated still
from recent political strifes: The soft, assuasive
influence of Literature is needed, to allav that
fever, and soothe that irritation. Vice and' folly
are rioting abroad :—They should be driven bv
indignant rebuke, or lashed by ridicule, into their
fitting haunts. Ignorance lords it over an im
mense proportion of our people: —Every spring
should be set iu motion, to arouse the enlighten
ed, and to increase their number; so that the
great enemy of popular government may no lon
ger brood, like a |xnteut*aus cloud, over the des
tinies of our country. Viml to accomplish all
these ends, what more powerful agent can be em
ployed, than a periodical on the plan of the Mes
senger; if that plan be but carried out in Prac
tice ? ‘
r J he South peculiarly requires such an agent.
In all the Union, south of AVashington, there are
but two Literary periodicals! Northward of that
city, there are probably at least tweety-five or
thirty ! Is this contrast justified by tile wealth
the leisure, the native talent, or the actual literary
taste of the Southern people, compared with
those of the Northern? No: for in wealth, tal
ents and taste, we may justly claim, at least, an
equality with our brethren .ml a domestic msti.
union exclusively our own, beyond all doubt, af
lords us, it we choose, twice the leisure lor read
ing and writing which they enjoy.
It was from a deep sens'e of this local want, that
the word Southern was engrafted on this peri
odical: and not with any design to nourish local
prejudices, or to advocate supposed local inter
ests. Far from any such thought, it is the Edi
tor’s fervent wish, to sec the' North and South
bourn! endearingly together, forever, in the silken
bands ot mutual kindness and affection. Fir
from meditating twi flity to the north, he iws al
ready drawn, and lie hopes hereafter to draw
much of his choicest matter thence; and h ipnv
indeed w ill he deem hiimdf, should his pa-es lv
making each region know the other better contri
bate in any essential degree to dispel the lowering
clouds that now threaten the peace of both, and
to brighten and strengthen the sacred tics of ffu

F.x commencing anew volume, the publisher

will the same exertions be continued, which havo
secured to his subscription list an unexampled in
crease, but his claims upon the public favor will
be enhanced by every means which imceasirm en
deavor, enlarged facilities, and liberal expendi
