, ITS aim WILT., IF.
. First: In Literature, to leave 110 province
unrepresented, so that while each i umber will
contain nitides of an abstract and permanent
value, it will nlso lie found Dial the healthy
appetite of the mind fur entertainment In in
various forms of Narrative, Wit, and Humor,
will not go uncared for. Tin publishers wish
to nay, also, that while native writers will re
ceive the most solid encouragement, and will
ba mainly relied on to fill the pages, of Ihs
Atlantic, they will not hesitate to draw
from the foreign erources at their command,
Hi occasion may require, relying rather on (he
competency of an author to treat a particular
subject, than on any other claim whatever,
Iq this way they hope to make the ir Periodi
cal welcome wherever tha English tongue la
spoken or read.
Second j In the term Art they Intend to in
clude the whole domain of aesthetics, and
hope gradually In make this critical dedart
ment a true and fearless representative of Art
in all Its various branches, without any regard
to prejudice, whether personal or national, or
t private considerations of what kind soever.
Tilinm In Volition, tha Atlantic will he
the organ of no party cliipic, but will honest ly
endeavor to he (lie exponent of what its con
ductors believe to be tli o American idea It
will deal frankly with persons and wiUi part
ies, endeavorangtokecp in view that moral el
ement which transcends all persons ami par
ties and which alone makes tho basis of a
true 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 com
mand, Uiey subjoin the following list of litera
ry persons interest ed in their ent erprise j wish
ing it however to be distinctly understood,
that they shall 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
tense or Intrinsic merit :

to husbandry. His course, also, will continue
to be thoroughly independent, and wholly un

conceives to be promotive of the true interest
of Agriculture in its broadest meaning. Neither

Entering Town Sites.
The following correspondence will show
that the act of the last Legislature of the
Territory, designating the County Commis
sioners as the proper persons to enter Town
Sites, is not recognized by the Commissioner
of the Land Office.
It is a question of doubt whether the Judges
of Probate, or the United State Judges, can
be regarded as "Judges of the County Court."
As aoon as that doubt ia removed, notice wi.J
be given. In the mean time no entering "
towns not incorporated can be made.
A copy of the act of the last Legislate
will be placed in the hands of the Commis
sioner, and. under the circumstances, the eu
triea already made mav be confirmed.
