the high character of the work, and to challenge the
n-itrn.ia.7e of all who value stcrlinr -literary merit.
For T-.ventv-Oiie Years, the Messcneer has endeavored
to reflect faithfully the Southern mind, while disdaining
all narrow and sectional views, ana na aeen alone
amon-x the mo ithlv periodicals of America, in defence
f the PECULIAR INSTITUTIONS OF THE
" SOUTHERN STATES- . ''.'
- To this aUce it will be d-svoted. and will be prompt
to repel assaults upon the S-mth. whether they come
undsr tbe specious garb of Betioi. or in tbe direct form
nf anti-slavery pamphlets. - At this critical juncture.
while our enemif are employing literature as their
Most potent weapons of attack, the Southern people
trill rel not withhold their encouragement from a
work whose aim it shall be to strike blows in their de
fence, v '
The Messenger will, as heretofore, present its readers
xeith Reviews, Historical and Biographical
Sketches, Novel. Tales, Travels, Essays, Poems,
Critiques, and Papers on the Army, Navy and
" other National Subjects. "
With a view to ensure a larger circulation of the
MESSENGER, the Proprietors though they intend
greatly increasing the sise of tbe work, havw reduced
the price of Supscription. which is now only

V lie was a swartliy, inulignant looking jmu

oasied of crime as it gave him re-viuinein-e

the air, making our stoutest sailors quad as if a
bullet shot had gone through their brains. "
At last We grew pale w lieu it was spoken of,
and the worst ot us never went to sleep without
saying our prayers. For myself, 1 would hure

matter but Antonio, the Spaniiird. lie laughed
at our fears, and detiid Satuu littiiiteil to tcri'dy

helm he refused to go several times, uudtr the
pretence of illness, he was excused from a dm j
which all on board dreaded. But at last the
rapt aiu ordered 1 A ntoi.io to receive u round

Few of the crew slept, lor expcctaiiou ai.d

At one o'clock tbe voice calleu, "bland from

" This was answered by a shriek of mug-iii'i r,
