SOUTHERN LITERARY MESSENGER.
THIS is a monthly Magazine, devoted
chiefly to Literature, but occasion
ally finding room also tor articles tlia fall
within the scope of Science ; and not pro
essing an entire disdain ol tastelul selections,
though its matter has been, as it will con
tinue to be, in the main, original.
Party Politics, and controversial Theol
ogy, as far as possible, are jealously exclu
ded. They arc sometimes so blended with
discussions in literature or in moral sci
ence, otherwise unobjectionable, as to gain
admittance for the sake of the more valu
able matter to which they adhere: bu'
whenever that happens they are incidental,
only, not primary. They are dross, tolera
ted’ only because it cannot well be severed
from the sterling ore wherewith it is incor
Reviews and Critical Notices, occu
py their due space in the work: and it is the
Editor’s aim that they should have a three
fold tendency—to convey, in a condensed
form,such valuable truths or interesting in
cidents as are embodied in the works re
viewed,—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 he
burned. In this age of publications that by
tlieir variety and multitude, distract anil o
verwhelinn every undiscriminating student,
impartial criticism, governed by the views
just mentioned, is one of the most inesti
mable and indispensable of auxiliaries to him
who does wish to discriminate.
Essays and Tales, having in view utility
or amusement, or both; Historical sket
ches— and Reminisences of events too min
ute for llistory, yet elucidating it, and
lieightuing its interest—may be regarded
as forming the staple of the work. And
of indigenous Poetry, enough is publish
ed sometimes of no mean strain—to man
ifest and to cuiCvate the growing poetical
taste anil talents'ot our country.
The times appear, for several reasons, to
demand such a work—and not one alone,
but inanyt Tho public mind is feverish
and irritated still, from recent political
strifes: The soft, assuasiveinfluence of Lit
erature is needed, to allay that fever, and
soothe that irritation. Vice and hmy are
rioting abroad :—They should he driven by
indignant rebuke, or laslied by ridicule, in
to their fitting haunts. Ignorance lords it
over an immense proportion ot our peo
pie; Every spring should be set in motion,
to arouse the enlightened, and to increase
tlmir number; so that the great enemy of
popular Government may no longer brood,
like a portent 1 aus cloud, over the destinies
of our country. t° accomplish *\
these ends, what more powerful agent can
be employed, than a periodical on the plan
of the Messenger; if that plan be but car
ried out in practice?
The South peculiarly requires such an
a (rent. In all the Union,’south of Washing
ton. there are hut two Literary periodicals !
Northward of that city, there are probably
at least twenty-five or thirty ! Is this con
trast 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,
talents and taste, we may justly claim, at
least, an equality with our brethren md a
domestic institution exclusively our own,
beyond all doubt, affords us, if we choose,
twice the leisure for reading and writing
which they enjoy.
It was from a deep sense of this local want
that the word Southern was engrafted on
this periodical: and not with any design to
nourish local prejudices, or to advocate sup
posed local interests. Far from any such
thought, it is the Editor’s fervent wish, to
see tlie North and South bound
ly together, forever, in the silken bauds ot
mutual kindness and affection, i’ s»r from
meditating hostility to the north, he has al
ready drawn, and he hopes herealter to
draw, much of his choicest matter thence:
and happv indeed will he deem himself,
should his pages, bv making each region
know the other better contribute m any es
sential degree to dispel the lowering clouds
that now threaten the peace of both, and
to brighten and strengthen the sacred ties
of fraternal love.
The Southern Literary Messenger lias
now been inexistence four years—the pre
sent No commencing the fifth volume.
How far it has acted out the ideas here ut
tered, is not for the Editor to say; he be
lieves, however, that it falls not further shoit
of them, than human weakness usually
makes Practice, fall short of Theory.
1 The Southern Literary Messenger is
published in monthly numbers, of 34 large
superroyal octavo pages each, on the best ol
paper, and neatly covered, at 35 a year
payable in advance.
2. Or five new subscribers, by sending
theii names and S2O at one time to the edi
tor, will receive their copies for one year,
for that sum, or at $4 for each.
3. The risk of loss of payments for sub
scriptions, which have been properly com
mitted to the mail, or to the hands of a post
master, is assumed by the editor
4. If a subscription is not directed to be
discontinued before the first number of the
next volume has been published, it will be
taken as a continuance tor another year.
Subscriptions must commence with the be
ginning of the volume, and will not he ta
ken for less than a year's publication.
5. The mutual obligations of the publish
er and subscriber, for the year, are fully in
curred as soon as the first number ot the
volume is issued : and after that time, no
discontinuance of a subscription will be
permitted. Nor will a subscription be dis
continued for any earlier notice, while xna
thing thereon remains due, unless at the
option of the Editor.

The uninci sal estimation in which the celebra
ted Liik Pills and PuoeSix Bitters arc
held, is satisfactorily demonstrated by the
increasing demand lor them in every state
and section of the Union, and by the volun
tary testimonials to their remarkable efficacy
which are every where offered. It is not
less from a deeply gratifying confidence that
they are the means of extensive and in
estimable good among his afflicted (etlow
creatures t. an from interested considera
tions, and the proprietor of these pre
eminently successful medicines is desirous
ufkeeping them constantly before the pub
lic eye.—Tlie sale o f every addinttional box
and bottle is a guarantee that some person
will be relieved from a greater or less degree
of suffering, and be improved in general
health ; for in no case of suffering from
disease can they be taken in vain. The
proprietor has never known or been in
formed of an instance in which they have
lailed to do good. In the most obstinate
cases of chronie dyspepsia, torpid liver,
rheumatism, asthma, nervous and billions
head ache, costiveness, piles, general debility,
sciofulousswelling and ulcers, scurvy, salt
rheum and ail other chronic affections ol
tlie. organs anil membranes, they effect
cures with a rapidity and permanency
which few persons would theoretically be
lieve, but to which thousands have testified
from happy experience. In colds anil
coughs, which, if neglected, superinduce
the most tatal disease of the lungs, and
indeed the vicera in general, these medicines,
if taken but for three or four days, never
fail. Taken at night, they so promote the
insensible perspira ion, and so relieve the
system of febrile action and feculent ob
structions, as to produce a most delightful
sense of convalescence in the morning ;
and though the usual symptoms of a cold
should partially return during the day, the
repetition of a suitable dose at the next hour
of bed time will almost invariably effect
permanent relief without further aid. Their
effect upon fevers of a more acute and more
violent kind is not less sure and speedy it
taken in proportionable quantity; and
persons retiring to bed with inflamatory
systoms of the most alarriiing kind, will
awake with tlie gratifying .consciousness
that the fierce enemy has been overthrown,
and can easily be subdued. In the same
way, viceral furgesence, though long eslab
lished, and viceral infiamations however
critical, will yield —the former to small and
the latter to large doses of the Life Pills ;
and so also hysterical affections, hypocon
driocism, restlessness, and very many other
varieties of the Neuro'ical class of diseases,
yield to the efficacy of the Phtrenix Billers.

The Cause of Bilious Cotti
ptaint anti a •Itotle of Cure.
A WELL regulated and proportionate
quantity of bile upon the stomach is al
ways requisite for the promotion of sound
health—it stimulates digestion, and keeps ,
the intestinal canal free from all obstructions.
On the inferior surface of the liver is a pe
cular bladder, in which the bile is first pre
served, being formed by the liver from the
blood. Ther.ce it passes into tlie stomach
and intestines, and regulates the indiges
tion. T-hus we see when there is a deficien
cy of bile, the body is constantly costive.
On the other hand, an overabundance of
bile causes frequent nausea in the stomach,
and often promotes very severe attacks of
disease, which sometimes end in death.
Fevers are always preceded by syiutoms
of a disordered stomach; as are also
scorfulous disorders, and all sympathetic
'functional, organic or febrile diseases,
i From the same cause, the natural and heal
thy action of the heart, and the whole vas
cular system is impaired and reduced below
its natural standard, as exhibited in pa!,
pitntions, languid pulse, torpors of the limbs,
syncope, and even death itself, in conse
quence of an overabundance of a peculiar
offensive substance to the digestive
The approach ofbilious diseases is at all
times attended by decided symptoms of an
existing diseased slate of the stomach and
bowels; i.e. with those signs which are
known to point out their contents to ne of a
morbid, irritating nature; but whenever the
alimentary canal happens to be loaded with
irritating matter, some derangement of the
healthy operation, either of the general
system, or of some particular organ of the
body is the certain result; anil when this
state happens to be united with any other
symptoms of disease, its (effects are always
thereby much aggravated The progress
of organic obstruction is often so rapid as
scarcely to admit of time for the applica
tion ol such aid as is to be offered by art,
yet, in general, the premonitory symptoms
ot gastric load are perceptible fora day or
two prcvii us to the feverish paroxism, a
period, when the most efficacious assistance
may be given, by unloading the stomach
and alimentary canal of its irritating con
tents, and thus reducing the susceptibili
ty of disease*
MOFFAT’S LIFE MEDICINES,
should always be taken in the early stages
of bilious complaints; and if persevered in
strictly according to the directions, will
positively rfl'ect a cure.
The mineral medicines often prescribed
in these diseases, although they may effect
a temporary cure at *be same time create
an unhealthy state of the blood, and
consequently tend to promote a return of
the very disease which they are employed
to cure. It is then by the useof purgatives,
exclusively formed of vegetable compounds
which, possessing within themselves no
icleterioiis agencies, which decomposition,
combination or alteration can develope or
bring into action, and therefore capable of
producing no effect, save that which is desir
jd—that a safe remedy is found.
