value. It w ill also he found that the healthy
appr'ite of the mind fur entertainment in It

will not go uncarcd for. The publishers wisn
to say, alio, that while native writeri wiil re.
reive the nioiit solid encouragement, ar"l wi"
lie mainly relied on to fill the pace of the
Atlantic, they will not hesitate ti draw
from the foreign scources nt their command

competency of an author to treat a particular

true and lasting national prosperity. It will
not rank Itself wllh any sect of antifs, but
with that bodv 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, they subjoin the following list of litera
ry persons interested in their enterprise ; wish
ing it however to b 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
sense of intrinsic merit :
