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 porated. 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. CONDITIONS. 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. Richmond, Virginia. _ NOTICE.

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. Full direclibns for the use of these medi ci es. and show ing their distinctive applica bility to different complaints, accompany them ; and they can be obtained, wholesale and retail at 375 Broadway, where numer ous certificates of their unparralled suc cess are always open to inspection.

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 organs. 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. Tin LIFE PILLS & PHCENIX BIT rERS have proved to be the most happy in their effects in cases of bilious diseases, ol my purely vegetable preparation ever offer ed to the public. If the stomach is foul, hey cleanse it by exciting it to throw oli'its e intents ; if not, they pass to the duodenum wi hunt exciting vomiting or nausea in ths stomach ; stimulating the neighboring vicera. as tin. liver and pancras, sons to produce a more copious flow of their secretions into the intestines; stimulating the ekalent capillaries, terminating in the inner coat, which an increased flow of the useless particles of the body, foreign matters, or retained secretions, are completely dischar ged.
