' ' ITS AIM WILL BE
First t In Literature, to leave no province
unrepresented, to that while each i umber will
, contain articles of an abitract and permanent
) vslus, it will alao be found that the healthy
appetite of the mind for entertainment in ita
various forma of Narrative, Wit. and Humor,
will not go uncared for. The publishers wish
. to ear, alao, that while native writera will re
) ceiv. the moat aolid encouragement, and will
. be mainly relied on to fill the page, of the
Atlantic, they will not hcsltat. to draw
from the foreign scouree. at their command
. aa oceaaion may require, rely lug rather on the
.competency of an author to treat a particular
aubject, than on any other claim whatever.
In tli la way they hope to make the ir Periodi
cal welcome wherever the English tongue la
. ipoken or read.
Second j In the term Art they Intend to in
elude the whole domain of aesthetic, and
Lope gradually to make thla critical dedart
raenc a true and fearless representative of Art
in all ita various branches, without any regard
to prejudice, whether peraonal or national, or
. t private considerations of what kind aoever.
, Third i In Politics, the Atlantic will be
.the organ of no party clique, but will honeally
endeavor to be the exponent of what ita con.
ductora believe to be the American idea It
will deal frankly with persona and with part
.lea. endeavoring to keep In view that moral el
ement which transcenda ail persona and par
ties and which alone makea the basis of a
true and lasting national prosperity. It will
not rank itself with any sect of antics, but
with that body of men which are in favor of
..Freedom, National Progress, and Honor,
.whether public or private. 1
Aa an earnest of the material at their com
mand, they auhjolnthe following list of litera
ry persons interested in their enterprise wish
'ing it however to be distinctly understood,
that they ehall hope for support from every
kind of abillity which desires the avenue of
their columns, and in the remuneration of
which they shall be guided purely by their
sense of Intrinsic merit:

large amounts had better send drafts, but
notes will answer if drafta cannot be pro
cured. We think we can show how much cheaper
it is to take the Lady's Book at Three Dol
lars than any other magazine at Two Dollars.
We will take a late number of both. The
Two Dollar Magazine contained 30 article,
ta Lady's Book 62. '
The Two Dollar Magazine contained 32 en
gravings, the Lady's Book 5ft.
The Two Dollar Magazine contained 64 pa
ges, the Lady's Book 100.
Twenty-four more engravings, twenty six
more articles, and thirty-six more pages,
nearly double the quantity. The lowest club
price of the Two Dollar Magazine is $1,25;
lowest club price of Lady's Book $1,67, only
42 cents difference in the price, which is three
and a half cents on each number, and for that
sum (three and a half cents), you receive
twenty-six more articles, twenty-four more
engravings, and thirty-six more pages month
ly certainly a very cheap three and a half
cents' worth. This view of the case has
probably never before been presented, but it is
a true statement, which any lady can con

We take this occasion to announce to Farm
ers throughout the country, that it is the in
tention of the Editor and Proprietor of the
"Germantown Telegraph," not only to con
tinue aa heretofore the Agricultural Depart
ment of his paper, but seduloi ly to add to
its character and value by all the means at
command. All necessary space shall be pro
vided for a ful irecord of Agricultural Details
and a full development of every branch of the
Farmer's Pursuit. He will in future, as he
has always heretofore, aim to be practical,
and to be of real and substantial advantage
to husbandry. His course, also, will continue
to be thoroughly independent, and wholly un
biassed by any' other motives than those he
conceives to be promotive of the true interest
of Agriculture in its broadest meaning. Neither
individuals, cliques, societies, or any other in
fluence shall swerve him from, the path of
right and duty.

sire a Newspaper, issued weekly, and equal
to any other family news and literary journal
published, which makes Agriculture a speci
ality, will find the "Germantown TeleeraDh"
to fulfill every condition, and to render it en-
tirely unnecessary for them to subscribe for a
I periodical exclusively agricultural.

As a Literary and News Journal it shall
not be surpassed by any in the country.
Neatly printed on good paper, of the largest
class, it shall continue to be one of the hand
somest newspapers of the day.
Every Family, in town or country, whether
they take other papers or not, will find the
"Germantown Telegraph" to be worth, in lit
eral benefit, twice the amount of subscription.

Entering Town Sites.
The following correspondence will show
that the act of the last Legislature of th.
Territory, designating the County Commis
sioners as the proper persons to enter Town
Sites, is not recognizee! by the Commissioner
of the Land Office.
It is a question of doubt whether the Judge,
of Probate, or the United State. Judge., can
be regarded as "Judges of the County Court."
A. oon a. that doubt i. removed, notice wi.I
be given. In the mean time no entering of
town, not Incorporated can be made.
A copy of the act of the last Legislates
will be placed in the hands of the Commis
sioner, and, under the circumstances, the eu
tries already made mat be confirmed.
