'A NATIONAL Periodical Literature,' says a distinguished American statesman, “is the graceful ornament of civil liberty, and a happy restraint on the asperities which political controversies sometimes occasion. It is an embellishment of society, and diffuses positive good throughout the whole extent of its influence.' And one of scarcely less eminence, both as a man and a patriot, has declared, that 'Leisure and Monty bestowed upon instructive and entertaining periodical reading, can never be abused not misapplied; and it is honorable,' he adds, 'to thousands in our country -- of our young population especially — that both (often obtained by much labor and self-denial,) are liberally and worthily applied to this object. The good effects of this propensity are not confined to present intellectual enjoyment: they pervade the future, with an influence alike salutary and powerful.' Such a native literature as is here alluded to, it has been the purpose of the Magazine, a new volume of which is herewith announced, to render honored at home and respected abroad. Its Editors have aimed to suit their periodical to readers of every denomination-to make it generally entertaining and useful. They have endeavored to blend instruction with amusement – to pass from light and gay effusions to stern disquisition; to mingle erudition with wit; to allure and please the studious and the grave, as well as the lover of light reading; to the former suggesting matter for reflection and remark, infusing into the latter the love of knowledge, and affording to both a not inelegant nor uninstructive ralaxation and amusement.
On the first of July, 1837, will commence the tenth volume of the KNICKERBOCKER, or New-YORK MONTHLY MAGAZINE. The publishers, mindful of the favor with which their efforts have been received at the hands of the public, would embrace the recurrence of a new starting-point, as a fit occasion to 'look backward and forward at the past and prospective character and course of their periodical. Within the brief space of a little more than two years and a half, the number of copies issued of the KNICKERBOCKER has been increased from less than five hundred to more than four thousand, without other aids than the acknowledged merits of the work -- acknowledged, not more explicitly by this unprecedented success, than by upward of three thousand highly favorable notices of the Magazine, which, at different times, have appeared in the various journals of the United States, embracing those of the first and most discriminating class, in every section of the Union. Of many hundreds who desired specimen numbers, and to whom they have been sent for examination, previous to subscribing, not one but has found the work worthy of immediate subscription. A correct inference in regard to the interest of quality of the matter furnished by the publishers, may be gathered from the
