[DECEMBER 7, 1861.

784

Commencement of Volume XXIV. Harper's  New Monthly Magazine For December, 1861.

Its unparalleled circulation from month to month, and a constant demand for back Numbers and complete Sets, evince that HARPER'S MAGAZINE meets the wants of the great body of American readers. No change will therefore be made in its general character. The Magazine contains at least twice the amount of matter of the leading English Monthlies. It is therefore enabled to present the best production, of European Novelists and Essayists, besides furnishing a larger amount of original matter than is given in any other Magazine of the day. Each Number contains an amount of reading equal to that in an ordinary octavo volume, with abundant Pictorial Illustrations of every subject in which the Artist can aid the Writer. More than Seven Thousand Illustrations have already appeared in the Magazine.  

Any Number will be sent by Mail, post-paid, for Twenty-five Cents. Any Volume, comprising Six Numbers, neatly bound in Cloth, will be sent by Mail, to any part of the United States within 3000 miles of New York, post-paid, for Two Dollar per Volume. Complete Sets will be sent by Express, the freight at the charge of the purchaser, at a Discount of Twenty-five per Cent. from the above rate. Twenty-three Volumes, bound uniformly, extending from June, 1850, to November, 1861, are now ready.

PROSPECTUS
of The Atlantic Monthly For 1862.

THE January number will commence the Ninth Volume of this Magazine. Its very large and still increasing circulation is a gratifying evidence of public approval, and no industry will be spared to render the forthcoming volume adequate to the requirements of times so pregnant with great events as those of to-day. The life of the Republic, the best interests of the nation, demand of literature a manly and generous action, and the conductors of this journal will remit no efforts in enlisting the best talent of the country to support with vigor and eloquence those opinions and principles which brace the great public heart to stand firm on the side of Freedom and Right. An elevated national American spirit will always be found illustrated in these pages. The Atlantic Monthly will never give other than the best literature, and it will be the constant aim of its conductors to render its variety greater and its attractions better each month than the last.

Among the contributions already in hand for 1862, the following will commend themselves as sufficient inducements for every family to provide the forthcoming numbers for household reading.

PROFESSOR AGASSIZ will begin in the January number a eeries of articles on Natural History, and other kindred topics, to be continued from month to month throughout the year. The name of so distinguished a man of science in connection with this announcement is a sufficient guaranty of the great benefit to be derived front his monthly contributions.

A New Romance, by NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE, will appear in the pages of The Atlantic early in the year. A New Story, by the late THEODORE WINTHROP, author of "Cecil Dreeme," will be commenced iii the January number.

Dr. GEORGE B. WINDSHIP, well-known for his remarkable experiments in Gymnastics, has written for The Atlantic " The Autobiography of a Strength Seeker," giving an account of his method of training for feats of strength, with advice on matters of Health.

The author of "Life in the Iron Mills," and " A Story of To-Day," will contribute a series of Tales during the year.

Articles by Prof. JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL, on topics of national interest, will appear frequently.

BAYARD TAYLOR has written a Story which will be printed in the February number.

The Staff of Writers, in Prose and Poetry, contributing regularly to the Atlantic Monthly, comprises, among its popular names, the following:

JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL, HENRY W. LONGFELLOW, RALPH WALDO EMERSON, NATHANIEL. HAWTHORNE, C. C. HAZEWELL, T. W. HIGGINSON, AUTHOR of "Life in the Iron Mills" and "Story of To-Day," OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES, JOHN G. WHITTIER, E. P. WHIPPLE, BAYARD TAYLOR, CHARLES E. NORTON, GEORGE S. HILLARD, HENRY GILES, Rev. WALTER MITCHELL, Mrs. H. B. STOWE, HARRIET MARTINEAU, CHARLES READE, "THE COUNTRY PARSON," ROSE TERRY, HARRIET E. PRESCOTT, Rev. ROBERT T. S. LOWELL, J. T. TROWBRIDGE.

TO CONSUMPTIVES.—The advertiser, having been restored to health in a few weeks by a very simple remedy, after having suffered several years with a severe LUNG AFFECTION, and that dread disease, CONSUMPTION, is anxious to make known to his fellow-sufferers the means of cure. To all who desire it, he will send a copy of the prescription used (free of charge), with directions for preparing and using the same, which they will find a SURE CURE for CONSUMPTION, ASTHMA, BRONCHITIS, &c. The only object of the advertiser in sending the prescription is to benefit the afflicted, and he hopes every sufferer may try his remedy, as it, will cost them nothing, and may prove a blessing. Parties ravishing the prescription will please address

Rev. EDWARD A. WILSON, Williamsburgh, King's County, N. Y.
