NUgBtn of anew 1'eriodical Work, entitled
The Gentleman's Magazine.
THE announcement of a new periodical, in tho
present state of affairs, may create some feel
ing of surprise; but having contemplated an altera
tion in tho nature of.a very popular monthly pub
licatjon, 'Every Body's Album,' the, proprietors deem
it best to proceed ill the perfected arrangements, and
produce a periodical embodying the most wholesome
points ot the old work, but conductcdwith sufficient
energy and .talent to ensure the success of their new
arrangements. 1 he respectable and extensive sub

the certainty of payment to the enterprise of the pro
prietors. Tho contents of tho Gentleman's Magazine will.
in every respect, be answerable to the meaning of the
title. We do not pretend, in our literary pursuits,
to fly as "caglcsoar, above. Jlic ken ofman," nor
shall wo be content with merely skimming tho sur
face of tho ground; our pages will, not bo filled with
abtrukc predictions, nor shall we display the brilliancy
of our critical acumen in matters "caviare to the mil
lion." In short, we do not mean to be profoundly
learned, nor philosophically dull. Wo wish to pro
duce a gentlcfnanly agreeable b,ook an epitome of
life's adjunctives a literary melange, possessing
variety to suit all palates, and sufficient interest to
command a place upon the parlour table of every gen
tleman in the united btatc.. t
