Embury, T. S. Arthur, Theodore S. Fay, Mrs. E. F. Ellet. In announcing to his numerous patrons and the public at large, his arrangements for the year 1842, the proprietor of Godey's Lady's Book, takes occasion to acknowledge the unparalleled and triumphant success of his Magazine, which has now reached the extraordinary number of forty thousand monthly; being a larger edition than has ever been printed of any other work of any description in America. This success he is aware has been attained by the vast superiority which the Lady's Book has always maintained over the contemporary magazines which have attempted to rival its merits, a superiority which is is still determined to preserve by keeping it, in all its departments literary, intellectual and moral, as well as pictorial, emblematic, artistic, and mechanical. That this is no idle boast, he appeals to the experience of the past twelve years, in all which time, he has made no promise to the public which has has not strictly performed, nor undertaken anything which his means did not enable him to accomplish to the utmost. Entering, as he is about to do, on the 24th Volume of the Lady's Book, with increased energy and accumulated resources: with an ample knowledge of the business in which he is engaged, acquired by long years of unremitted application: with a subscription list unparalleled in the annals of literature; with numerous facilities not possessed by any other publisher; with well digested and wide-extended arguments; and above all, with a steadfast purpose of maintaining the lofty elevation his work has reached, the proprietor has not hesitated to incur expenses, which under other circumstances might prove startling, but by means of which he will be enabled to make the Lady's Book, the richest, the rarest, the most attractive, and the most valuable periodical, intrinsical and extrinsically, ever offered to the American public. LITERARY DEPARTMENT - It has ever been the aim of the proprietor to impart to the Lady's Book a high literary and moral tone, and for this purpose he has, without regard to cost, procured the aid of the most eminent writers and, for several years past, has committed its editorial supervision to Mrs. J. Hale, Mrs. Lydia H. Sigourney, and Miss E. Leslie, ladies of whom not only their own sex, but the whole country, has reason to be proud In this respect, the Lady's Book enjoys a decided advantage over all other publications, as it is the only work devoted to ladies, ladies derive an advantage which must be obvious to every parent, husband,, brother, and friend, as well as to every lady who properly appreciates the dignity and importance of her sex.- To add to its superiority in this particular the proprietor has secured in addition to the ladies already mentioned, the invaluable services of Miss C. M. Sedgwick, author of Redwood, Clarence, Letters from England, &c. &c.; a writer, whose efforts in raising the intellectual standard of her sex, and vindicating the true rights of woman, not less than her richly-gifted intellect and varied information, have gained her a reputation as wide as it will be enduring. He has also made arrangements, by which, besides regular contributions from Mrs F C Embury, Mrs H B Stowe, Mrs F S Osgood, Mrs S Smith, Mrs M H Parsons, Mrs J. Thayer, Mrs A M F Annan, Mrs C L Hentz, Mrs E F Etlet, Mrs E. C. Sedman, Mrs. Dupuy, Mrs. M. Duncan, Mrs V. E. Howard, Mrs M St Loud, Mrs E, Allen Mrs C H W Esling Mrs S E Parley, Mrs M. B. Snow, Miss E. Leslie, Kate Franklin. He will be enabled to furnish articles from Maria Edgworth, Mrs S. C. Hall, Mary R. Milford, Mrs Hofland, Mrs C B Wilson, Mary Howitt. and other English lady-writers of distinction, some of whom have already published in the Lady's Book the only original contributions they have ever made to American literature. Not has he omitted to procure the assistance of eminent writers of both sex. Aware of the universal and well deserved popularity of N. P. Willis, Esq.; and confident that the productions of his graceful and elegant pen will be highly acceptable to the readers of the Lady's Book, the proprietor has entered into an arrangement, by which he will be able to give in each number of his work an exclusive article from the gentleman; and he has also retain-all of the contributors whose writings have heretofore given such ample satisfaction including Epes Sargent, W. G. Simms, Esq., Geo. P. Morris, Professor Ingraham, Jos. R. Chandler, Professor Dunitry, Robert Morris, Professor Frost, Fmy Earle, M. D., Professor Walter, M. C. Brooks, A. M., Park Benjamic, Esq., E. Halden, R. S. Mackenzie, A. M'Makin, T. S. Author, Esq., L. F. Tesistro, H. W. Herbert, Rufus Dawes, Jos. C. Neal, E. G. Squier, Hon. R. T. Conrad, J. M'Lellen, Jr., Dr. J. K. Mitchell, Jas. Aldrich With such aid, it is not too much to say that the Literary Department of the Lady's Book will surpass any thing that has ever been or can be attempted. ORNAMENTAL DEPARTMENT- It is a source of no little pride to the Proprietor of the Lady's Book, that he first introduced into this country the plan of furnishing, along with a monthly periodical of elegant literature, embellishments of an attractive and costly character. The first steel engravings accompanying such a work were given by him; the first mezzotint engraving was given by him; the first patterns of lace-work and embroidery were given by him; the first colored plates of fashion were given by him; the first music was given by him. These are things to which he would not refer, if some of those who have essayed to follow in his footsteps, not content with imitating all his designs, even to the form of his book, the size of his type, and the color of his cover, had not foolishly put forward claims to originality, and attempted to found a right to an exclusive merit on doing that which they have borrowed from his example. But what he has done heretofore in the way of embellishments to his Book, though it far exceeded any effort of those who strove to copy his movements, cannot compare with what he now means to do. His arrangements for this department of his work have been projected on the most liberal scale of expenditure, involving an extent of outlay such as has never before been dreamed of in any periodical, European or American. As an evidence of his intentions, he now states that each number of the lady's Book for the ensuing year, will contain at least three splendid engravings; embracing in the series every possible variety of subjects. Historial, Landscape, Picturesque, Portraiture, Imaginative and Emblematical, and executed in every possible variety of the art; mezzotint, line and mezzotint. stipple, medalion, and that most chaste and expressive manner, the line and dot combined, which has given such world wide celebrity to the works of modern artists. Splendidly colored plates of the fashions, will also be given every month, containing at least four female figures, and embodying in every instance the latest costumes, received directly from a correspondent at Paris. In order to give the greatest attractiveness to the subjects of his embellishments, the Proprietor has given orders to various American Painters, of established reputation, who are now engaged in preparing expressly for the Lady's Book, numerous original pictures, on National and Historical events, some of which are nearly completed, and soon will be in the hands of the engraver. Among the painters thus engaged he may enumerate J G Chapman, Painter of the National Picture of the Baptism of Pocahontas. P F Rotheraiel, J P Frankenstein, S S Osgood, of Bost. I Williams, &c. He has also established a correspondence in London, through which he will receive early proof impressions of the finest prints executed in that metropolis, and will thus be constantly supplied with an immense variety from which to make suitable selections as a series of pictorial illustrations of Shakespeare; two of which , Anna Page and Master Slender by Leslie, and Katherine and Petruchio, by Cattermole, and are now nearly ready. Among the subjects at present in preparation for the Lady's Book, may be mentioned Morning Devotion and Evening Devotion,- two superb pictures of domestic piety; the Effects of Industry and the Effects of Idleness,- admirable illustrations of great moral truths; The Old Soldier and his family, a beautiful transcript of patriotic heritage(?); several of Sir David Wilkie's most loved(?) compositions. Departing for the Fair and Returning from market,- charming specimens of rural life; the Village _______, Fortune Telling; the Secret Discovered, The Maiden's Chamber, The Elopement of Bianca Capella, &c. &c.; and Edwin Landseer's last and greatest production, Youthful Innocence, of which the only copy in the country is that which belongs to the proprietor. Determined to gratify every possible variety of taste, the proprietor has also made arrangements for a series of the most superb Mezzotints ever executed in this country, several of which are already engraved, and will be given to his subscribers, as soon as a sufficient number of impressions can be taken to supply his immense edition. Besides the services of H. S. Sadd, of New York, who has now in hand a number of plates, the proprietor has secured the services of Mr. Humphrey's of London: who is universally conceded to stand in the foremost rank of English Engravers, and whose splendid efforts in mezzotint have commended the admiration of the most distinguished amateurs and critics. This eminent artist is now engaged in preparing expressly for the Lady's Book, a number of mezzotint pictures, which the proprietor ledges himself will be of an unsurpassed excellence; and of the most interesting and attractive subjects. To guard against all possibility of difficulty hereafter, he has likewise ordered from England, a complete mezzotint establishment, and immediately on its arrival, Mr. William E. Tucker, of this city, will commence operations, in that department of art. In order to procure these various embellishments in season, the proprietor has made permanent arrangements with the following eminent engravers, all of whom are now engaged in executing steel plates for the Lady's Book, New York. A L Dick, N Gimberede, W H Jackman, J G Dunnel, A Jones, Philadelphia. W E Tucker, J B Neagle, J B Forrest, W H Ellis, E Humphreys.
