they may be amply rewarded by the faeur
of the community.

We intend merelyto give a notice of
our intentions for next year, leaving to
others long advertisements—"full of
sound and fury, signifying nothing."
Agreeably to the practice of last year
the publisher will issue as good a num
ber each month as he does in January.
This is a novel feature in Magazine
publishing. During the whole of last
year he gave more engravings and more
reading matter than any of his conterit•
poraries, and will continue to do so
next year. Those who subscribe to
dODEY'S LADY BOOK, may do
so under the assurance that they will
receive more for their money in the
Magazine alor.e, than by subscribing to
any other work. To this ie-added and
included in the same $3, the LADY'S
DOLLAR NEWSPAPER; which
contains in one month nearly, if not quite
as much reading matter as other month•
lies, making for $3, the amount of read
ing of, two inagazines a month. THERE
ARE PECULIARITIES about Godey's
Lady Book for the ladies that no other
IVFagazine possesses. There is a Mez
zotint and Line Engraving in each
number—both by the• best artists.—ln
addition to these, there are given month
ly what no other magazine gives—a
Coloured Fashion Plate, with a full
description. This feature is peculiar to
Godey, as no other work has them ev
ery month and colored. Then there
are Caps, Bonnets, Chemisettes, Eques
trianism for Ladies, with engravings.
The Ladies Work Table, with designs
for knitting, netting, crotchet, and all
other kinds of work. Patterns for Smo
king Caps, Chair Covers, Window
Curtains, D'Oyley's, Purses. Bags ; -&c.
&c. Health mid Beauty, with engrav
ings. Model Cottages, with ground
plans. and other engravings. always il
lustrative of something useful. Music,
beautifully printed on tinted paper.
which may be taken out and bound
Colored Modern Cottages, and Colored
Flower Pieces occasionally. These
are all extra in Godey, and to be found
in no other magazine. These were all
given last year. and will he - continued.
In addition we shall have in every No.
