Southern Lites ary .llessengei*.
rrHIIS is a monthly Magazine, devoted chiefly
Jl to Literature, but occasionally findjj ’
room also lor 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 .
Party Politics, and controversial theology t M
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 ftr the sake of the
more valuable matter to which they adhere: but
whenever that happens they are incidental, onlv j
not primary. They are dross, tolerate and only b’J
cause it cannot well be severed from the sterljil .
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 reviewed, — 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. l a
lids age of publications that by their variety and
multitude, distract and overwheliun every undis
criminating student, impartial criticism, gov
erned bytlie views just mentioned, is one of the
most inestimable and indispensable of auxiliaries
to him who does wish to discriminate.
Essays and Tales, having in view utility or a
musement, or both— Historical sketches— and
Rejiinisences of events too minute for History
yet elucidating it, and heightning its interest—
may be regarded as funning Xlio 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.
The times appear, for several reasons, to de
mand such a work—and not one alone, but many.
The public mind is feverish and irritated stiff
from recent 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 ion’s it over an im
mense proportion of our people :—Every spring,
should be set in 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 portentous cloud, over the des
tinies of our country. Vud 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 iflan be but carried out k: n>ir
The South peculiarly requires such an agent.
In all the Union, south of Y> ashiugton, there are
but two Literary periodicals! Northward of that
city, there are probably at least twenty-five cr
thirty! Is this contrast justified by the wealth,
the leisure, die native talent, or the actual literary
taste of the .Southern people, compared with
those of the Northern? 2No: for in wealth, tal
ents and taste, wc may justly claim, at least, an
equality with our brethren md 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 ol ibis local want, that
the word Southern was 'engrafted on this ’peri
odieal: 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 see tne North and South
bound endearingly together, forever, in the silken
bands of mutual kindness and affection. Far
Rom meditating Iwstility to the north, he has al
leailv drawn, and he hopes hereafter to draw,
much of his choicest matter thence; and happy
indeed w ill lie deem himself, should his pages, by
making each region know the other better contn
bate in any essential degree to dispel the lowering
cloiuls that now threaten the peace of’ both, and
to brighten and strengthen the sacred ties of fra

To the patrons ofthe Southern Titerary Messenger.
!he startling cost at which this work has been
established, and -is sustained, anti the ba.kwaid
ness oi many subscribers in fulfilling their part of
our mutual comp act, tall indispensably for an <tp
peal, not lo their liberality—but to their justice.
11 punctual payments are ever necessary, they are
pre-eminently so in the case of such a publica
tion, —purely literary—almost wholly original—
and destitute of 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 the
well warranted expectation of rallying southern
talents and Southern public spirit, around the
drooping and well nigh prostrate banner of South
ern Literature. Since it has now acquired claims
upon Southern justice —cun it be, that thes are
urged in vain ?
Subscribers then, who are in arrears—and let
them remember, that payment is due in advance,
will, I trust, without delay, transmit the mounts
they owe to me, at Richmond, by mail, at my
risk and cost; taking proper evidence of the fact
and date of mailing; and retaining a memoran
dum of each note sent.
THOMAS W. WHITE-
