FOR 1845.
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
the moment it presents itself, as well as securing the
services of all the
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
Our original idea of illustrating American history
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,

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

Patriotism has already brought a splendid array

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.
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.
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.

Graham's American Monthly Magazine. for
1845, will commence a new volume, December
10th, 1844. with the January number. 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
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
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.'
Occupies the time of several accomplished artists,
among whom are Welch and Walter, G. Parker
and others.
Is a feature originated by the proprietor of Gra
ham, and successfully carried out. We defy any
competition in this branch.
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.
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."

The Ladies' National Magazine," is now so
well established and no favorably known, that, by
general consent of the newspaper press, it hr placed
at the head of the LADIES' Books. 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. Thc contents
aro of every variety, and while usually of the light
er kind, do not preclude the insertion of papers of
more value. Fitted alike for the boudoir and the
fire-side, the "Ladies' National" presents monthly

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
over yet arrayed in the constant support of any
ladies' magazine. At the head of this list is Mrs.
Lydia H. Sigourney, who will, herca ter, ho a reg
ular contributor, both in poetry• and prose. She
will be assisted by Mrs. E. F. Ellett, Mrs. A. Bt. F.
Annan, Mrs. F. S. Osgood, Mrs. L. J. Peirson,
Mrs. M. St. Leon Loud, Mrs. Ann S. Stephens,

During the ensuing year, a new feature will be
introduced, in the publication of a series of
illustrative of the manners and stirring incidents of
different periods in our country's history, The first
of these, a story of the revolution, from the pen
of tThe author of Cruizing in the Lust War,"
will appear in January, and ho followed up by arti
cles, of equal interest, from 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.
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
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,

In short every variety of embellishment, execu-
ted by the beet artists, shall continue to grace ow

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

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."
