ADVERTISEMENT.

In commencing the publication of this Magazine, we had doubts whether another popular journal, conducted without appealing to the vitiated taste of a large portion of the community, could be carried through more than one year. But our expectations in this respect have been agreeably disappointed; and we are encouraged to make efficient arrangements for its continuance, securing the aid of an extensive Publisher in putting into vigorous action the proper business machinery.

Although the expenses of the work will be increased, we have concluded to reduce the price to One DOLLAR a volume, in the hope of a wide circulation; and we look to the friends of a sound popular literature for continued encouragement in the enterprize.

We consider ourselves already laid under special obligations to the Merchants and Mechanics of Boston, for the liberality with which they have favored our undertaking. We are also gratified by the generous treatment which the work has received from the most intelligent conductors of the Press, in all parts of the country where it has been circulated.
