,m. - ITS AIM WILL BE
fiasTi In Literature, to leave no province
nrepresetited, 10 that whils each lumber will
contain articles of an abstract and permanent
value, it will alto be found that the healthy
appetite of the mind for entertainment In it
various form of Narrative, Wit. and Humor,
will not to nncared for. The publishers wish
to say, alto, that while native writers will re
ceive the most lolld encouragement, and will
be mainly relied on to fill the pages of the
AttAKTit, they will not hesitate to draw
from the foreign acenrcea at their command,
as1 occasion may require, relying ralher on the
competency of an author to treat a particular
subject, than on any other claim whatever.
In this way they hope to make their Periodi
cal welcome wh'ererer the English tongas Is
spoken or read.
Srcowo t In the terra Abt they Intend to In-
elnde the whole domain of aesthetics, and
hops gradually to males this critical dedart
merit a true and fearless representative of Art
in all Its various branches, without any regard
to preludlee, whether personal or national, or
tJ private considerations of what kind soever,
Titian t In Politics, the Atlantic will bs
the organ of no party clique, but will honestly
endeavor to be toe exponent of what Its con
ductors believe to be the American Idea It
will deal frankly with persons and wUh part
ies, endeavorsngtokeep In view that moral el
ement which transcends all persons and par
ties and Wtilch alone makes the basis of a
tin and lasting national prosperity. It will
not rank itself with any sect of anties, but
with that body of men which are in favor of
Freedom, National Progress, and Honor,
whether public or private.
As an earnest of the material at their sora-
mand, the? subjoin the following list of liters
rr persons Interested In their enterprise (wish
ing It however to bs distinctly understood,
that they shall hops for support from every
kind of abllllty which desires the avenue of

Entwing' Town Sites.
The following correspondence will show
that tha act ol tha last Legislature of ths
Territory, designating tha County Commis
sioners aa the proper persona to enter Town
Sites, is not recognized by tha Commissionsr
of the Land Offies.
It is a question of doubt whether the Judges
of Probate, or the United States Judges, can
be regarded as "Judges of ths County Court."
As soon as that doubt is removed, notice wi.1
be given. In the mean time no entering of
towns not incorporated can ba made.
A copy of the act ot the last Legislates
will be placed in tha bands of tha Commis
sioner, and. under ths eircumstancss, the en
tries already made mat be confirmed.
