OF THE Soulhcni Literary Messenger. rillllS is a monthly Magazine, devoted rhieH - A to Literature, 1-m occasionally room ai o for articles that fall within ike’ scone *• 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 tice ? 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 ternal Jove. CONDITIONS 1. Tlie Southern Literary Messenger is pub lished in monthly numbers, of 64 large super royal octavo pages each, on tlie Lest of paper, and neatly covered, at $5 a year—payable in advance 2. Or five new subscribers, by sending their names and S2O at one time to the editor, will re ceive their Copies for one year, fob that sum, or at $4 for each; 3. The risk of loss of payments for subscrip tions, which have been properly committed to the mail, or to the hands of a post master, is assum ed by the editor. 4- If a subscription is not directed to be dis continued before the first number of the next vol ume lias been published, it will betaken as a con tinuance for another year. Subscriptions trust commence with the beginning of the volume, and will not De taken lor less than a year's pub* lication. *>. The mutual obligations of the publisher and subscriber, tor toe year, are fully incurred as soon as the first number of the Volume is issued: and after that time, no discontinuance of a subscrip tion will he permitted. Nor will a subscription be discontinued tor any earlier notice, while any thing thereon remains due, unles t the option of the Editor. _ , 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.
