Tiie sylc of devanee the beauty and finish of llicse illustrations. and thc evtensive ímprovements which will bc made in its typoraphical appeanmee, and above all thc tone of it3 litorary department, by the biilliant array of contributors, whose articles have cnrichcd thc pages of each number. will ivo it a character, second to no Magazine in the Ünion. Thc character of the articles which shall appcar in its pages will be cqually renu ved irom a sickly senti mentality. and irom an effectation of moralitVjbu while a true delincation of human nature in evcry varicly of passion is aimed at, nothing shnll be found in ils pages to cause a bíush upon thc chee! of the most pure. The Literary Character wiU be suffieicntly guaran teed by the reputation of both Magazine thus united. for years past. VVritcrs of the firsl rank have boon regular contributors to thcir pages, and the tales and sketches published in them have been widely copied and reac!, and the firm and independent tone of the criticisnjs, upon the current literature of the day has been cveiy where approved and com. Tiende,The list of Contribulors embraces the names of most of the principal writers in America, with a respectable number of Engliïh authors. In addition, the distinguished services of a host of anonymous writers of no ordinary nbilit'rs have given worth and charucter to the pages of the Magazines. The series of well knovnnauticnl papers entitled i: Cruising in the Last War," have had a run, unequaled by any series publishcd in any Magazine, fbr years. Tlie nuthor promises to open the first of a new series of il Tales of the Sca." and from his known abiütics ns a depieter of sea scènes and life, much may be relied upon tromhim in maintaining the popularity of the Magazine. Papers may be expected during the volume also from the authorof the well known anieles entitled li The Log of Old Ironsides." - The author of ;Syrian Letters.' will also end his powerful and graceful pen to sustain and incrense the reputation of the work. The valuable aid of the author of 'Leaves from a Lawyers Port Folio' ws also been secured - and we may expect sornehingstill more thrilling from the spacious stores which a long life in the profession has enabled him o amass. An occasional Chit-Chat with 'Jeremy Short' and ; Oliver OldfeJlow' is also promised with a variety of choice anieles inprose and verse, from various writers of celebrity, as contributors o the prominent Magazines of the country. The Editors of both Magazines continue their services under the new arrangement. With such an array of talent, a Magazine ofunrivallcd attractions, may safely be promised the coming volume. FASHIONS AND ENGRÁVINGS. In compliance with the alsiost unanimous wish of our lady subscribers. we shall, tho ènsuing volume, furnish them with a beautiful and correct plate of Fashions, Monthly, a feature, it is believed, thatwill neitherbe unwelcome nor unpopular. These fashion plates shall be drawn from original designs from Paris and London, and may always be depended upon as the prevailing style in Philadelphia and New York for the month in which hey are issued. These howevcr, shall in no wise nterferc with the regular and choico engravings and music whieh accompany each number of the work. The splendid Mezzotint engravings from the burin of Sartain, which have been so justly sdmired, will be followed during the volume by several irom the same hand, while the steel engravings in the best style of art from interesting scènes shall still enrich the Magazine. The choicet pieces of music for the Piano and Guitar shall iccompany each number of the work.TIME OF PUBLICATION. The work will be published on the first of the month in every quarter of the Union.

In all the principal cities. agcnts have been esiablished, to whom the Magazine is forwarded, prior to the time of issuing it, so that they niay be delivered to resident subscribers by the first of the month. This is an important arrangement to distant subscribers, who become tircd. importúnate and eventually discontinue many works. in consequönce of the great delay by publishcrs.
