AND JOSEPH H. FRANCIS, 128 WASHINGTON-STREET.

AND SOLD BY ALL BOOKSELLERS IN THE UNITED STATES.

1858. Sept. 15. bift of H. G. Benny, esp of Boston.

TO OUR GENEROUS YOUNG PATRONS.

You have encouraged Parley's Magazine so well that my pub-
lishers mean to continue the work as usual, with as much better
matter as can possibly be obtained, and with the same punctu-
ality as heretofore. No pains will be spared to make it useful
as well as pleasing to all of you. Subscribers for the next year
will please transmit their one dollar for one copy, or their five dol-
lars for six copies, as early as convenient; as the conditions pre-
scribe the payment in advance, and the expenses are so many
that unless this method is followed up, the publishers cannot af-
ford to send the work out.
• To new subscribers it is proper to give some idea of the con-
tents of the work: and the following may be mentioned as
forming a portion of the more prominent subjects. .

I. Geographical Descriptions, of manners, customs and countries.
II. Travels, Voyages, and Adventures, in various parts of the world.

III. Interesting Historical Notices and Anecdotes of each State, and of the
United States, as well as of foreign countries.

IV. Biography, particularly of young persons.
V. Natural History, of birds, beasts, fishes; as well as plants, trees, flowers,&c.

VI. A familiar description of the Objects that daily surround Children in the
Parlor, Nursery, Garden, &c.

VII. Original Tales, consisting of Home Scenes, Stories of Adventure, &c., calculated to stimulate the curiosity, exercise the affections, and improve the judgment.

VIII. An Account of various trades and pursuits, and some branches of commerce.

IX. Cheerful and pleasing Rhymes, adapted to the feelings and comprehension of youth.

The Publishers have made arrangements to have the work abundantly illustrated with spirited engravings, and every effort will be taken to render it a useful auxiliary to the cause of education.
