Cornposed en-, tirely of original articles, by the most eminent writera of the age; and embellished with a larger number and a greater variety of costly,'elegant and attractive pictorial illuatrations, than any similar publication. EDITED BY Mrs. Sarah J. Halo, Morton M'Michael, Mrs. L, H. Sigourney,L. A. Godey. CONTRIBUTOR8 TO EACH NUMEER. Miss. C.M. Sedgwick, N. P. Willis, Miss E. Leslie, Mrs.C, Lee Henez, Mrs. E. C. Embury, T. S. Arthur, Theodore S. Fay, Mrs. E.F. Ellet. In announcing to his numerous patrori9 and the public at large, his arrangements for the year 1842, the proprietor of Gotley's Lidv's Buuk, lakes occasion toidge the unparalleiec and triumpliant succcsa fhis Magazine, which iias now reached he extraordinary number oïforty thousand nonthly; b"ing a larger edition than has ev;r been prmted of any other work of any lescripíiun in America. This succss he is iware has been attained by tho vast uperijriïy which the Lady's Book bas always uaintained over thecontemporary magazines vhich have atlempted to rival its merits, a Mjporiority which he is still determined to jrcserve by keeping it, in all its departments iterary, inlellectual and mora!, as vvell as ctorial, emblematic, artistic, and mechania!. That this is no idle boast, bc appeals to the experience of the past twelve years, n all wliich time, he has made no promise !o t he public which he has not strictly performed, nor underiaken anylhing which his means dul pot enable him to Acconiplish to ihe utmost. Entering, as he is about to do, on the 24th Volume of the Lady's Boolc, with increased energy and accumul.ited resources ;with an ampie knowledge of the bu siness in which he is engaged, acquired by long years of unremilted application: with a subscriptlon list unparalleled in the annals of literature; with numerous facililies not possessed by any other publisher; with welldigested and wideextended arguments; and above all, with a steadíast purpose of inaintaining the lofty elevation his work has reached, the proprietor has not hesitated to incur exponses, which under ether circum 8tance8 might provo startling, but by means of which he will be enabled to uiake the Lady's Book, the richest, the rarest, the most attractive, and the most valuabie periódica!, intrinsical and extrinsically, ever offeied to the American public.Literaby Departmemt. - tt has ever been the aim of the propnetor to impart to tho Lady's Book a high lilerary and moral tone, and f'or Ihis purpose he hap, without regard to cost, procured the aid of ihe most eminent vvrilers and, for several years past, has commilled ita editorial supervisión to Vire. J. Hale, Mrs. Lydia B. Sigourney,and Miss E. Leslie, ladiés of kom not only their own sex, hut the whole country, havo reason to be proud. In this respect, tho Lady's Book enjoys a decidcd advantage over uil other publications, as it is the only work devoti d to ladies, ladies derive an ad vantage vvliich must be obviouá to evury parent, husband, brother, and well as to every lady who properly appreciates tho dignity and importance of her sex. - To add to its supenority in this particular the proprietor has secured inaddition tu the ladies aiready mentioned,thu iuvaluable services of Miss C. M. Sedgewick, author of Redwood, Clarcnce, Letters fromEngland, &LC &c. ; a writer, whoso efforts in raising the intellectual standard of her sex, and vindicating tho truc rights of woman,uot less thau her richly-gifted intellect and yaried information, have gained her a reputation as wiJe as it will bo enduring. He bas also made arrangements, by which, besides regular contributions frora Mra F C Embury, Mrs H B Stowe, Airs P S O3good, Mrs. S. Smith, Mrs M H Parsons, Mrs. J. Tliayer, Mr3A MP Annan, Mrs. O L.lHentz, Mm E FèEllet, Mrs. E.C. Sedman Mrs. Dupuy. Mrs. Duncan, iWrs V. E. Howard, Mrs M St Loud, Miss E, Allen Mrs C H W Esling Airs R E Parley, Miss M, B.

Milford, Mrs Hoüand, Mrs C BWilsoo,3 Mary Howiu, ind other English lady-writers of distinction, sotne of whom liave already published in the Lady's Book the only original conLributions they have ever made to American litcrature. Nor has he omitted to pro cure the assistance of eminent writers of both sex. A ware of the universal and well dcservcd populaiity of N. Willis, Esq.; and confident that tho productions of nis graceful and elegant pen will be highly acceplable 10 the readers of the .Lady's Book, the proprietor has entered mto an arrangement, by which ho will be able to give in each nuinber of bis work an exclusive„arlicle from the gentleman; and he has also retainall of the contributors whose writings have heretofore given such ampie satisfaction in cluding Epes Sargent, V. G. Simms, Esq. Geo. P. Morris, Professor lngraham, Jos. R. Chandler, Professor Dimitry, Robert Morris, Professor Frost, Finy Earle, M. D. Professor Walier, . N. C. Brooks, A. M. Park Benjamin, Esq.

Aldnch. With such aid, it is not too much to say, that the Literary Department of the Lady's Book vvill eurpass any thing that has ever been or can be atternpted. Ornamentad Djspartment. - It is a source of no little pride to the Proprietor of the Lady'u Book, that he first introduced into this country the plan of furnishing, along witiia mónthly periodical oí" elegant literature, embellishments of an attractive and costiy charncler. The first 6teel engravings accompanying such a work vvere given by him; the first mezzotint engravmg was given by him; the first patterns of lace-work andembroidery were given by hivn; the firstcolored plates of fasbion were given hy hira; the first music was given by him. These are things to which he vou!d not refer, if eome of Ihose who have essoyed to füllow in his footsteps, not content vvith imitating all his designs, even to the form of his bctok, the size of his type, and the color of his cover, had notfoolishly put forward claims to orig inality, and ottempted to found a right to an exclusive raerit on doing that which they have borrowed from his example. JBut what he !a9 done heretofore in the way of embellitjhments to his Book, though kfarexceeded any effbrt of those whq strovo to cwpy his movements, canuot compare with what henow means to do. His arrangements for this department of his work have been projected on the most liberal ecale of expenditure, involviny un extent of outlay such as has neer befoie been dreamed of in any periodical, European or American. As au evidence of his intentions, he now states that cacli uuniber of the Lady's Book for the ensuing year, vvill coutain atleust tbree splendid engravings; embracing in .h: series every possible vancty of subject s. Historial,Landscape, Picluresque, Portraiture, Imagiuative and Emblernalical, and executed in every possible variety of the art; mezzotint, line and mezzotiut, stipple, medalion, and that most cha6te and expressive mannor, the line and dut cornbincd, which has given snch worlcl wide celebrity to the vvorka of modern artists. Splendidl colorcd platea of tho fashions, will also begivon every rnonth, containing at least four feraale figures, and embodyinjr in every instance ihe lutest costumos, received directly from a correspondent at Paris. In order to give the greatest attractiveness tö the subjecls of hia embellishmenls, the Proprietor bas given orders to vaiioua American Painters, of established reputation,who are now engaged in preparing expressly for the Lady's I3ook,numerous original picturès, on National and Historical events, soine of which are nearly completed, and soon will be in the hands of the engraver. 'Among the painters thus engaged ho may enumérate; J G Chapman, Painteroflhe National Picture of the Baptism of Pocahontas. P F Rothermel, J P Fraukenstein, . S S Ossood.of Bost.l Williams, &ic.He has also established a correspondence n London, through which lie will rcceive early prooi' impressions of the fim-cát prints executed in that metropolis, and will thus be constanlly supplied with an immense variety 'rom which to make süjt&bié selecücns as well as a series of pictorial illustratiuns of Shakespeare; two of which, A o na Page and Master SJender by Iieslie, and Kalliarine and Pctruchio, by Cattenuole, and are nuw nearly ready. Among tho subjects at present in preparation for the Lady's Book, may ae menüoned Morning Devotion and Evening Devotion, - two superb pictures of domestic piety; the Effects of Industry and the EíFects of Idleness, - admirable illustrations ofgreat moral truths; Tbe'Old Soldier and bis Family, a beautiful transcript of patriotic feelings; several ot Sir David Wilkie's moal vulued compositions. Departing for the Fair and Returning f'rom market, - charming specimens of rural lifejThe Viüage Amanueiibis, Fortune Telling; The Seciet Discnverod, The Maulen's 'Jhamber, Thu Elopement of Bianca Capella, kc-; and Edwin Lundseer's last and greatest production. Youthful Innocence,of which the only copj inthe country is that which belongs to the propnetor. Determined to gratify every possible variety of taste, ílie proprietor has also made arrangements for a series of the most buperb Mezzoiints ever executed in this country, several of which are already engraved, and will be given to his 6ubscribers, as soon as a sufficient rtúmber of impressions can be taken to supply his immense edition. Beeides hz services of H . S. Said, of New York, who has novv in hand a number of plates, the proprielor has secured the services of Mr. Humphuey's of London: who is universally conceded to stand in the ioremost rank of English Engravers, and vvhose splendidefforts in mezzotiat have command ed the admiration of tho most dislinguished amateurs and critics. This eminent artist is now engaged in preparing expressly for tho Lady's Book, a number of mezzolint pictures, which tho proprielor pledges himself wi.l bö of an unsurpassed excellence; and of the most interesting and attractive snbjects. To guard against all possibility of difiiculty hereaftor, he has likewise ordered from Eugland, a complete mezzotint establi'shment, and immediately on its arrival, Mr. William E. Tucke r, 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 arrangeinents with the following eminent engravers, all of whom are now engaged in executing steel plates for the Ladv's Book.New York.
