Science ; and uot professing an entire disdain of
j taste'ui s< lections, though its matter has been
it wiil continue to be, in the main, original. '
| Party Politics, and controversial Theology a
j far as possible, are jealously excluded. Thev'am
I sometimes so blended with discussions in hkr/
: tme or 111 morel science, otherwise unobjection
able, as to gain admittance for the sake of t },("
j more valuable matter to which they adhere: but
I whenever that happens they are incidental , only,
not primary. They are dross, tolerated Fitly be
cause it cannot well be severed from the sterling
ore wherewith it is incorporated. 0
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—so
convey, iti a condensed form, such valuable truths
or interesting incidents as are embodied in 1 by
works reviewed,—to direct the readers attention
to hocks that deserve to be read—and to warn
him against wasting time and money upon that
large number, which merit only to be burned, h,
this age of publications that by their variety and
multitude, distract and overwheltnn every undis
cnniinat'ng student, impartial criticism, gov
erned by;he views just mentioned, is one of the
most inestimable and indispensable of auxiliaries
to him who dors wish to discriminate.-
Essays and Tales, having in view utility or a
musement, or both— Historical sketches— and
Remimsences of events too minute for History
yet elucidating it, and heightning- its interest
may be regarded as forming tlm staple of tlie
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 net one alone, but many.
The public mind is feverish and irritated stilh
from recent political strifes; The soft, assuasire
influence of Literature is needed, to allay that
fever, and soothe that irritation. Vice and' folly
are rioting abroad: —They should be driven In
indignant rebuke, or lashed by ridicule, into then
fitting haunts. Ignorance lords it over an im
mense proportion of our people ;—Every spgng
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 port curious cloud, over the des
tinies of our country.- \nd to accomplish all
these ends, w hat 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
r I he South peculiarly requires such an agent.
In all the Union, south of YVashington, there are
hut two Literrry periodicals ! Northward of that
city, there a: probably at least twenty-five nr
thirty! Is tins contrast justified by the wealth,
'he leisure, .lie native talent, or the actual hteivrv
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 md a domestic insti
tution exclusively our ow n, 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 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 see tlie North and South
bound endearingly together, forever, in the silken
bands of mutual kindness and affection. Far
from meditating hostility to the north, he has al
ready drawn, and he.hopes hereafter to draw,
much of his choicest matter thence; and lAppy
indeed w ill he deem himself, should his pages, by
making ea« h region know the other better contri
bute iu any essential degree to dispel the lowering
clouds that now threaten the peace of both,
to brighten and strengthen the sacred ties of fra

_ , CARD.
To the patrons of the Southern Literary Messenger.
The startling cost at which this work has been
established, and is sustained, and the backwa d*
ness of many subscribers in fulfilling their part of
our mutual compact, call indispensably lor an ap
peal, not to their liberality—but to their justice-
If punctual payments are ever necessary, they at e
pre-eminently so it, the case of such ii publica
tion, —purely literary—almost wholly original—
and destitute of the vital aid which nt-wspapets
derive from- advertisements.
My all is at stake, in this enterprise.—lt i* 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 nigli prostrate banner pf South’
ern Literature. Since it has now acquired claim*
upon Southern justice —can it be, that thes are
urged in vain ?
Subscribers then, who are in arrears—and M
them remember, that payment is due in advance ,
will, I trust, without delay, transmit the mount*
they owe to me, at Richmond, by mail, at my
risk and cost; taking proper evidence of the tact
and date of mailing; and retaining a meinoran
dum of egcji note sent.
