Blank Notes, NEATLY TRINTED AND FX)R SALE AT THIS OFFICE PROSPECTUS. OF THE Southern Literary Hessenger THUS is a monthly Magazine, devoted c hieH to Literature, but occasionally fi n< i • room also for articles that fall within the sco* *°g Science ; and not professing an entire disdai tasteful selections, though its matter has been' it will continue to be, in the main, original. ’ Party Politics, and controversial Theolor,, far as possible, are jealously excluded. Thev ** sometimes so blended with discussions in lit * r * ture or in moral science, otherwise unobject' able, as to gain admittance for the sake of °\' more valuable matter to which they adhere- 1 whenever that happens they are incidental, oup' not primary. They are dross, tolerated only h' ’ cause it cannot well be severed from the suVl * ore wherewith it is incorporated. 1 ° Reviews and Critical Notices, occupy the due space in the work: and it is the Editor’s ai ” that they should have a threefold tendency-!” 1 convey, in a condensed form, such valuable truth* or interesting incidents as are embodied in tlf works reviewed,—to direct the readers attention to books that deserv e to be read and to w ' him against wasting time and money upon tint large number, which merit only to be burned 1 this age of publications that by their variety and multitude, distract and overwhelm!) every uncli! criminating student, impartial criticism, gov erned by the views just mentioned, is one of the most inestimable and indispensable of auxiliary* to him who dots wish to discriminate. Essays and Tales, having in view utility 0 r a museinent, or both— Historical sketches Reminisences of events too minute f or History yet elucidating it, and heightrfitig its maybe regarded as forming th*> staple oftlie work. And of indigenous Poetry, enough i s published—sometimes of no mean strain— to man. ifest and to cultivate the growing poetical taste and talents of our country. Tile times appear, for several reasons, to de maud such a work—and not one alone, but many The public mind is feverish and irritated still from recent political 'strifes: The scift, 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 fittiug haunts. Ignorance lords it over an m. mens** proportion of our people Every spring should be set in motion, to arouse *he enlighten ed, and to increase their number; so that the great enemy of popular government inav no lor ’ ger brood, like a portentmus 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 on the plan of the Mes senger ; if that .plan be but carried out in prac tice ? ‘ The South peculiarly requires such an agent. In all the Union, south of Washington, there are but two Literary periodicals Northward of that i city, there are probably at least twenty-five nr thirty! Is this Contrast justified by the 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 uH a domestic insti tution exclusively our own, beyond all doubt, af fords us, if we choose, tw ice the leisure for read ing and writing which they Curry. 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 the North and South oound endearingly together, forever, in the silken bands of mutual kindness and affection* Ear from meditating hostility to the north, he has al ready drawn, and he hopes hereafter to dm*, much ot his choicest matter tlrrtice; and happy indeed will lle'de'em himself, should his pages, by making each region know the other better contn bute 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 fra ternal love. CONDITIONS 1. Ihe Southern Literary 'M*?Gsi?hger is pub lished in monthly numbers, of 64 large super loyal octavo pages each, on thebegt of paper, ainl neatly covered, at $5 a year—payable in advance 2. Or five new subscribers, by sending tlieii names and at one time to the editor, will re ceive their copies for one year, for that sum, or at §4 for each. 3. I lie risk of loss of payments for subscrip trolls, 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 ,dire'ct ! 'ed to be dis continued before the first number of the next vol ume has been published, it will be taken as a con tinuance for another year. Subscriptions must commence with the beginning of the volume, and will not be taken for less than a year's pub lication. 5. The mutual obligations of the publisher and subscriber, for the 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 be permitted. Nor wall a subscription be discontinued for 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. Ihe startling cost at w hich this work has been established, and is sustained, and the backwaid ness of many subscribers in fidfilling their pari of our mutual compact, call indispensablv for an ap* peal, not to their liberality— but to their justice. If punctual payments are ever necessary,they at® pre-eminently so in the ease of such a publica tion, —purely literary—almost wholly original — and destitute of the 'vital aid w ldch 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 wellnigH prostrate banner of South* ern Literature. Since if has now acquired claims upon Southern Jt'STicfc—can 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 mount* they owe to me, at Richmond, by mail, at my risk and cost; taking proper evidence of the fa® and date of mailing; and retaining a memoran dum of each note sent.
