The bed earnest a publisher can give of what he 'an and will ',lO next year is a reference to what he has done last year, or at any time for the last fifteen years. Under this view of the case it would be quite sufficient for ordinary purposes for us to say that the high character of this magazine fur literary and artiatical merit will be properly sustained. But we arc aware that the rapid and dazzling succession of novelties which we have brought forward within the last few years naturally excites a lively curiosity, and every subscriber is saying to himself what will Godey do next ? It is merely with a view to gratifying this curios ity on the part of our friends that we now proceed to enumerate seine of the features of our next year's plan, premising, however, that the enumeration must necessarily be partial and incomplete, fiom our invariable practice of seizing upon every REW ANII BItILLIANT Conn OF EMBELLISHMENT the moment it presents itself, as well as securing the services of all the POPULAR, LIVELY AND PIQUANT WRITERS the moment their characters aro distinctly develop ed and pronounced. The honor of bringing for ward first-rate gcnious into public notice and favor, end serving as a sort of prime conductor to electric flashes which send their light through the whole Union, has become quite habitual to the Lady's Book. Our original idea of illustrating American history by VIEWS OF BATTLE GROUNDS we are still calmly pursuing in a style that defies all com petition. The not less brilliant idea of illustrating the Heroism of American Ladies by a series of Engravings and Narratives whirls will serve to place in their true light the patriotism, devotion and self-sacrifice of our female ancestors in tho revolu tionary war, emphatically called Wife ii3oroic Age of Amorica, is also original with us. Other incidents of revolu tionary history will also furnish subjects for the embellishments of the coming year. Among the subjects already executed arc '. Reception of the news of Lexington fight, By Harley, Marion's entertainment of the B rit.otlicer, By White, Female Gallantry, By Hubert, , Storming of Red Bank Fort, By Hamilton, Count Donop's Monument, By Hamilton, The Battle of Concord Bridge, By Frankenstein The Germantown Battle-Ground, By Russel Smith Trenton Battle-Ground, By Hamilton, whh a large number of others, engaged but not yet sent in by the artists. Another new and striking feature we now propose for the first time in public, having had artists engaged for twelve months in working it out. Our readers will please to note the date of the announcement of this feature. It will , consist of Characteristic Slate Views, in Which the peculiarities of scenery, costume and customs of every state and territory of the Union will be pres ented in succession. This idea will of course be claimed by others, but our readers will not forget to mark dates. Our proffered premium of SOO for the best paint ing of a subject illustrative of American Female Patriotism has already brought a splendid array The award has been of talent into the field. postponed for another month out of courtesy to stains who have pictures still upon their easels. The premium of $250 for the best engraving will of course bring forward a series of first rate steel plates. In addition to all these advantages, the privilege of engraving the premium pictures of the Apollo association will serve to form a key-stone to our splendid system of embellishments. The public know our literary contributors well, for they have long been in the habit of recognizing them as the Leading writers of Ameiica in Magazine Lit orature—that literature which exacts from the ablest pens their most piquant and brilliant contributions, at the same tine that it condenses into a compact and pleasing form the moral, the useful, and the sol id in narrative, sketch and essay wtting. M EZZOTI NTS, MEZzOTltets, M EMT. Tq... It is only necessary to say that In this depart ment we have Sartain, Sadd and Warner, and each of them has several plates in hand. We shall, we think, have one in each number next year. AUTHENTIC FASHION PLATES, Godey's Lady's Book is the only Magazine that can he relied upon for the real fashions. Our translators sutler nothing of merit and inter est, which is suited to the design of the Lady's Book, in the literature of Germany, France Italy, and other nations of the European continent to escape them. Among many novel features in the literary way which are now in the course of preparation, for well-known reasons we choose to announce but one in this connexion, viz: The border legends of America, many of which have just reached us from the die tent regions which were formerly the scenes of bor der wars and hunting expeditions, and where the exploits of the famous Indian killers and hunters still furnish themes for purely national ballade, songs and stories to their children and grandchil dren, by the winter's fireside. It is not necessary for us to give the names of our writers—previous numbers will show that they see the best in America.

Its long and universally successful career, from its com mencement unit the present time, when it has a circulation exceeding by thoucands any other mag azine in the country, is perhaps as good an evi dence of its great and increasing merit as the pub lisher has it in his power to offer. To his old sub scribers, he trusts no assurances are necessary of his determination to maintain its present ascendency over all rival periodicals of the country. The en gagement, permanently, during tho past year, of such men as Bryant, Cooper,, Paulding, Dana, Longfellow, Iftffman, Neal, Mancur, etc., of high reputation in the literary world, as regulai contributors, In addition to a previous list embra cing the first names In the nation, is a sufficient guarantee that the work will continue to be the prin cipal medium of communication between the best authors and the public. Graham's Magazine has been, from its establtsh= meat, more than any other, the favorite periodical of the people of the United States. Though its plan does not entirely exclude articles of the most important character such as have raised Blackwood and some other foreign journals to their high influ ence and reputation, its pages are principally devo ted to what is usually termed light literature. It is distinguished from other publications of simrlar aims by the literary and artistic merit of its contents. While those of other works are unknown or an nonymous, the contributors to this aro the most em inent authors of our age and country, the very creators, founders, of our national literature. Es pecially it is celebrated as containing the choicest productions of the finest female writers of the time. Every number contains ems which may be appeal ed to with pride by the sex; as vindicating their intellectual eminence. It may satiny be asserted, that Graham's Magazine has regularlily engaged a better corps of writers than any other magazine; that since its establishment it has been the pioneer in magazine literature; and that the contributors of (Irish' am" have, by their able contributions, given a higher national character to periodical literattne in the United States than it ever before possessed. With such a list of writers as our pages exhibit, we may challenge the criticism of Europe. While the most able writers of the country are engaged as permanent contributors to Graham's Magazine, the arts are not overlooked. The most accomplished AMERICAN ARTITS employ their genius for our subscribers. The most elegant engravings that have ever appeared in America, have beeh given to the public in Graham's Magazine. We aro now prepared to give the right direction to the talents of oar artists, and are renal yeti that a national tono snail be strictly preserved in "Graham." Hereafter we shall place in the engravers' hands none but American pictures.-- Our own country abounds with the finest scenery in the world. It is full of historical associations, of thrilling interest, and on every band subjects start up, fit for the painter's pencil and the engraver's burin. Every patriotic sentiment urges the selec tion of national subjects for the pen and pencil, and we feel assured that the American public will sue, lain the enterprise. _ _ Variely qf magnificent Engravings. No magazine in the world has presented so great a variety of elegant engravings to its subscribers as Graham's. Every branch of art is brought into requisition, and every novelty in the Scenery, or in cident in American History, that can interest or instruct the reader, is seized upon by the artists in our employ. Among the styles to be put forth in our new volume for 1845, we will enumerate the following: AMERICAN BATTLE-GROUNDS. Giving correct pictures, taken on the spot, of the places in which the most remarkable battles have been fought. These engravings will be of the high est order of art ; end we may mention, that in order to insure a permanency in the elegance for which these designs have already become celebrated, wo have engaged Mr. Smiley for three years on A med. can Scenes and incidents. In addition to this, we have emoted into a per manent engagement with the house of Hewdon, Wright & Hatch, of New York, for a supply of most exqhisite pictures, among which we mention a series of elegant Indian and Prarie Scents, got up in the must magnificent style, and representing, from sketches taken from nature, the most beautiful scenery of our western country. Our Southern views, by the same house, which have become so I widely popular, will also he Continued. The ex quisite female heads engraved by this firm--among which we may instance that of Mrs. Stephens, which has never been equalled in this country— will be farther supplied by Messrs. R. W. & H., whose facilities and talents, in their line of art, are unrivaled in the world. We may safely say that we have all the pert artists emplayedon !Graham.' OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY, Occupies the time of several accomplished artists, among whom are Welch and Walter, G. Parker and others. PORTRAITS OF AUTHORS, Is a feature originated by the proprietor of Gra ham, and successfully carried out. We defy any competition in this branch. SARTAIN'S ELEGANT MEZZOTINTS. Mr. Sartain will furnish us, for the New Volume, a series of his magnificent mezzotints. One will appear in January. We need not soy to the readers of Graham, that these brilliant pictures excel any mezzotints ever issued in America, and his finest efforts have apposred in this work. FLOWERS COLORED FROM NATURE, Truthfully drawn by on able artist to take a place in a department, got up expressly for the ladies, for the Now Volume, embracing, the latest fashions, new styles of needle work, and ornamental work, etc., with letters on topics connected with female interests, will also form a feature in the Note Comic and Humorous Sketches. Mr. J. C. Neal, E. A. Poe, 11. H. Weld, and others, will furnish a series of amusing sketches, which will be handsomely illustrated by Croome, or Barley. We shall also have hits at Fashionable LTe in Letters from abroad, Written by F. J. Grand, Eeg.„Consul to Ant werp, who will also furnish us,with the earliest lit erary intelligence, and short notices of new works, prior to their appearance here in the shape of re prints. This will give " Graham" a position to adjust the value of foreign works, before the pia -1 chaser here has been duped by puffs paid for by in terested publishers. Editorial and Critical Department. The Editorial Department will continue to em brace notes on current literature, and reviews of all new American or foreign works of general in terest or value. The criticisms of Graham's Maga ure acknowledged in all parts of the country to be su perior in acumen, honesty and independence to those of any cotemporariee. Greater scope will he given to this department of the work and topics on all subjects likely to attract attention wili be tear lessly discussed, In this department we shall give a chapter on fashionable gossip each month, hitting off the follies of the fashionable world for the a musement of our lady readers; and for the gentle men, Frank Forrester has promised us hints on sports and pastimes, a feature which we have no doubt will be of interest to many thousand of our reader. We have also made arrangement for a large supply of Original Music, with eminent com posers, so that wo shall present next volume, ✓l most ample Musical Department, Suited to the wants of a very large number of ladies, and of value, in itself, equal to the sabsciip don to Graham."

Its literary contents, like those of the three dollar magazines, are all original, and from the most celebrated . Amer- Man writers of both sexes. The contributioits to this periodical are a constantproof of the taste, and ability of our beloved countrywomen. No other meg- azine is so exclusively a mirror of their minds, or is so generally supported by them.

Fitted alike for the boudoir and the fire-side, the "Ladies' National" presents monthly an agreeable variety of domestic sketches, tales of fashionably life, romances of history,imerns, critical notices of living authors, new receipts fOr the house. keeper, directions for fashionable styles of embroid ery, descriptions of the fashions, gossip of our eastern metropolis, musical Intelligence, die. Ste. These contents, instead of being, like those of the other two dollar magazines, made up chiefly by selections from old newspapers and other second hand sources, are written expressly for us; so that our contents are ALL bRICIINAL. As a guarantee of the style in which the literary department is conducted, the publisher hoe placed the editorial charge of the magazine in the hands of Mrs. Ann S. Stephens, ac knowledged by all critics, to he the best magazine writer in the world. Those who have read her thrilling stories of ° Alice Cop ley," "Molina Gray," ° Anna Taylor," and ° Clara," need no proo.' of her exalted genius. She will be assisted by the strongest corps of CONTRIBUTOR over yet arrayed in the constant support of any ladies' magazine. At the head of this list is Mrs. Lydia H.

W. Herbert, and others of our best writers ! The critical portraits of female poets will still be continued, and stories of a domestic character, from the well known pens of Mrs. Annan, F. E. F., and Ellen Ashton, will continually appear. GREAT PRIZE PICTURES. to order that the pictorial department may stand first to the country, the publisher intends publish ing, in January and February, two superb premi um pictures, far superior to any yet issued in the magazines. The first, A Mezzotint by Sartain, will appear in January, anti has confessedly never been equalled by that inimitable artist. The second, to appear in February, is the first of a series of great historical pictures, which—to maintain the national character of his work—the publisher has projected. These are intended to illustnee great events in American annals, especially those in which woman figured. The first is a Mezzotint of Washington at Eighteen ! Engraved from a picture never before made public. This feature will make the book unequalled, and those Who wish 'to secure the Whole series must send their money early. We here state, what is undeniable, that during 1844, Iva published MEZZOTINTS orrEsEn mew ANY RIVAL, and shall continue to do so for 1845. Those who subscribe to the " National" will get these une qualled engravings oftener than in any other book. For November, December, January and Febuary, we already have issued, or intend to issue, an un broken series of these plates. Who else has done, or can sloths same? The other illustrations shall be executed by the first American Artists, and be in every variety and style, viz t Line and Stipple Engravings, Colored Flowers and Birds, Lace Work and Embroidery, Pictures Executed in 'riots, Quarre's Superb Designs, &c.

So eorapl3toly have we outstripped all rivalry in this point, that the other magazine 3 now only occasionally furnish the fashion. But as lons.. test, in dress is desirable, patterns o; the 'gest costumes will be indispenort hie to the ac•:, in order to keep the tun of the changes in dress. But in order that other illustra tions may net have to give place for thorn, ma shall publish our FASHION PLAT: , :•I.3 that in we shall give as many embellishments as any other two dollar book and the fashion plate besides!

A Bad nail-aim The following occurred in one of the towns of Massachusetts not far from Rhode Island. It is a compound of rum and benevolence, appetite and cunning, high and low depravity, such as seldom comes to light. Husband, what do you think I have done to day?" said M rs. C. to the keeper of a country store, where the drunkard's 0 be joylul" was still sold, upon his re turn home to dinner. " I cannot possibly tell, my dear; I dare say something clever. " Well, I never did such a thing befote, but the man looked so pitiful, I thought I would encroach upon your wardrobe a little, for once, as I knew you could well supply the poor creature's wants without any inconvenience to yourself." " You have given away one dilly coals, I suppose ; hope you didn't make a mistake and give my go , to-meeting one, did you 1" " Oh, no, I gave away one of your shirts. He said he'd none, and had called to beg one--so I gave him one, aad he went oil as happy as if Ihad given him a cow, I don't 'know when have seen such a smile of joy at so small a gift.° " Given. a shirt !

'• His bottle ! well, I hope you did not fill it for him, fur that would seem like the story in the paper lately, where the wife told the husband she would supply the drunkard's family out of house, as long so he supplied the rum from the store. Did you let him have any ?" " Any what, my dear, molasses or vine gar?— you have no objections to my sell ing him any thing he will pay for?" Yes, I have, you know I have, I would not self him ruin for pay, and you may trust him for anythii.g else. I wish you would let him have molasses. His wife would be glad of that. But did you let him have any rum?" " Yes, my dear, I did. He seemed so feeble and wished that I would let him have a little. I " Dow much " Half a pint!"
