JAMES HILLIARD, Adm'r. April 13, 1838, THE GEORGIA MIRROR [XSTABI.ISHED IN 1834. j A popular and highly esteemed Magazine, of gen eral Literature and the Fine Arts, embellished with gorgeous and costly Engravings, on Steel, Cop pi r and I V'ood; and also with Fashionable anil popular Music, arranged for the Fiano- Fortc, Uuitar and Bard. EDITORS. MRS. ANN S. BTF.PHKNS A WILLIAM W. SNOWDEN. 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 those published in any other Magazine in Ameri ca. 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. Mrs. L. 11. Sigourney, Mrs. Jane E. Locke, Mrs. Woodhull, Mrs. Emma C. Embury, Miss A. D. AVoodbridge, Miss 11. L. Beasley, Miss Charlotte Cushman, Miss Mary Emily Jackson, Messrs.

W ill; many outers who w ill occasionally coritri >ute to the jiagesol the work, and every exertion will be made to render the Ladies’ Companion, wliat a work devoted to the female portion of ti: Community should be, interesting, useful and in structive. Tiik Musical Department is under the su pervision ot Air. J. Watson, whose qualifications for the task arc too well known to require our tes timony. 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 ment, and he (hitters himselt that his present fa cilities are such as to give the Ladies’ Companion eminent advantages over all other publications of its character. ]• rum tlie foregoing it w ill be perceived that the L adies’ Comdamon embraces every department within the range of Belles-Lettres and the Fine Arts; and no exertions or expense will be deem ed too great to render the work equal to any other 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 gives its readers such great returnfur their subscrip tion. 1 The Prize Articles will all be published du liiig the year. Ihese articles will comprise the successful candidates for the premiums of one thousand dollars awarded by a committee of liter ary gentlemen in August last. J ERMS.— l hree Dollars a year iu advance, or four during the year. No subscription received for less than one year.

April 1 ~nwWECTFK OF THE Koutlicrii liUt'rgj'y IlifsNfiigd'j', 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 ternnl love. 1 lie Southern Literary Messenger las now reached the lltli No. of its third volume— llow tar it has acted out the ideas here uttered is not lor the Editor to ray.
