rVAHIS is a monthly Magazine, devoted chiefly
A to Literature, but occasionally finding
room also for articles that fall w ithin the scope of
Science ; and not professing an entire disdain of
tasteful selections, though its matter has been, as
it w ill continue to be, in the main, original.
Party Politics, and controversial Theology , 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: hut
whenever that happens they are incidental , only;
not primary. They are dross, tolerated only be
cause it cannot well be severed from the sterling
ore wherewith it is incorporated.
Reviews and Critical 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 in the
works review ed, —to direct the readers attention
to books that deserve to be read—and to warn
him 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 overwhelm!) every undis
eriminating student, impartial criticism, gov
erned by the views just mentioned, is one of the
most inestimable and indispensable of auxiliaries
to him who does icish to discriminate.
Essays and Tales, having in view utility or a
musement, or both— Historical sketches —and
Reminisences of events too minute for History,
yet elucidating it, and heightning its interest
may be regarded as forming the staple of the
work. And of indigenous Poetry, enough is
published —sometimes of no mean strain—to man
ifest and to cultivate the growing poetical taste
and talents of our country.
Tlie times appear, for several reasons, tp de
mand such a work—and not one alone, but manv.
The public inind is feverish and irritated still,
from repent political strifes ; The soft, assuasive
influence of Literature is needed, to allay that
fever, and soothe that irritation. Vice and folly
are rioting abroad:—They should be driven by
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 in motion, to arouse the eulighten
ed, and to increase their number; so that the
great enemy of popular government may no lon
ger brood, like a portentMius cloud, over the des
tinies of our country. \nd to accomplish all
these ends, what more powerful agent can be em
ployed, than a periodical oil the plan ol the Mes
senger; if that plan be but carried out in prac
The South peculiarly requires such an agent.
In all the Union, south of Washington, there are
but two Literary periodicals! Northward of that
city, there are probably at least twenty-five 01
thirty! Is this contrast justified by the wealth,
the leisure, the native talent, or the actual literary
taste ol the Southern j“tople, compared with
those of the Northern? No: for in wealth, tal
ents and taste, we may justly claim, at least, an
equality w ith our brethren «nd a domestic insti
tution exclusively our own, beyond all doubt, af
fords us, if we choose, twice the leisure for read
ing and writing which they enjoy.
It was from a deep sense of this local w ant, that
the word Southern was engrafted on this peri-,
odical: aud 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 see tne North and South
bound endearingly together, forever, in the silken
bands of mutual kindness and affection. Far
from meditating hostility to tlie north, he has al
ready drawn, and he hopes hereafter to draw,
much of his choicest matter thence; and happy
indeed w ill he deem himself, should his pages, by
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 ties of Ira
The Southern Literary Messenger has
now reached the lltli No. of its third volume.-
How far it has acted out the ideas here uttered,
;is not for the Editor to say. He believes, how
ever that it falls not further short of them, than
human w eakness usually makes Practice fall short

Our mutual compact, call indispensably for an <ip
pcal, not to their liberality—but to their justiie.
It punctual payments arc ever necessary, they are
pre-eminently so in the ease of such a publica

and destitute ot the vital aid which newspapers
derive from advertisements.
My all is at stake, in this enterprise.—lt is a
venture, stimulated indeed by some hope of e
molument; but founded largely, also upon tlie
well warranted expectation of rallying Southern
talents and Southern public spirit, around tlie
drooping and well nigh prostrate banner of South

upon Southern justice —can if be, that t/ics are
urged in vain ?
Subscribers then, who are in arrears and le

the cheapest periodical in the world.
IN commencing anew volume, the publisher
would take occasion to observe, that not onlv
will the same exertions be continued, which have
secured to his subscription list an unexampled in
crease, but his claims upon the public favor will
be enhanced by every means w hich unceasing en
deavor, enlarged facilities, and liberal expendi
ture can command.
The subjoined is a brief plan of the work :
Its Original Papers w ill be so varied as to
form a combination of the useful with the enter
taining and agreeable. These will embrace the
departments of useful science, essays, tales,
and roETRY which may deserve the name.
It is the publishers design to make the Visiter
agreeable to the old and tlie young—to the sedate
and the gay—to mingle the valuable with the a
musing—and to pursue the tenor of his wav with

SINCE the publication of the May number, the
demand for the Ladies’ Companion has
been unprecedented and bey ond the most saneuine
Ai the commencement of the vol
ume an additional number 01 copies were printed
which was considered at the time adequate to sat
isly all the orders which might be received, ami
leave a considerable number on hand for subse
quent calls. Tlie pubhsheris more than gratified
in stating that the w hole edition was nearly ex
hausted before the issuing of the seventh number
ot the volume; and at this time but very few com
plete st-ts remain on hand, to supply the numer
ous orders which are daily received Horn every
section of the United .States.
Inconsequence oi this great unforeseen increase
of new subscribers, Le lias determined to double
the number of impressions lor the subsequent
year; while he must gratefully appreciates the un
precedented encouragement extended to the Lu
llies' Companion, and at the same time he begs to
assure the readers of the Magazine and the pub
lic in general, that it is his ardent resolution to
meet it with a corresponding liberality on liis part
to merit its continuance.
Splendid Steel Engravings by our best ar
tists, accompany each number—illustrated by
Tales at.d spirited Sketches—w hich will, as here
tofore, continue magnificent and far superior to
those published in any other Magazine in Ameri
The Ladies’ Companion contains a larger yuan
lily <f reading than any other magazine issued in
this country, and its subscription price is only
three dollars a year, while tlie great combination
ol talent secured tor tlie coining year w ill 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 lavor already extended to him so liber
ally, has 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 pow erful talents
ot Mrs. .Stephens, the proprietor litis secured a
list of contributors, whu h combined will render
the Ladies’ Companion one ol the most interesting
and talented Magazines ol the day.

ever commanded a large share of attention, ami
been looked upon with no little interest by its rea
ders, and more especially tlie L adies, whom the
publisher is in the highest degree anxious to
please. It will continue to be a subject of more
than usual care to him, aud to the Professor,
under w hose supervision it is placed, to make that
portion of the magazine allotted to Music, more
than ever deserving of the countenance of every
lover of music. It has ever been and will contin

printed correctly and free from errors.
The Work in General. Over every depart

expenditures will be liberally bestowed, as it is the
design of the publisher, w ith the aid of liis con

and accuracy of its typography; the variety and
high tone, of its literary articles; the. quality and
value, of its music ; and the unequalled splendor
of its Pictoral Embellishments.
It is the determination of the publisher to use
every means to maintain the superiority which
the Ladies’Companion has obtained. For four
years he has steadily pursued a course of improve

cilities are such as to give the Ladies’ Companion
eminent advantages over all other publications of
Front the foregoing it w ill be perceived that the
Ladies’Companion 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
of nearly every cotemporary journal in the United
States, and in fact, many on the other side of the
Atlantic, have strongly asserted the undeniable
claims of the Ladies’ Companion to the support
of the public generally. There is no work that
