No. 178 MARKET STREET.
The aim of this Magazine, as stated at its commencement, has been to furnish the Catholic community monthly, at a cheap rate, with an instructive and interesting miscellany of information, chiefly of selections from approved sources. The conductors of the work flatter themselves that they have fulfilled the obligation which they assumed, and done even more than they promised. The Magazine, from having been chiefly an eclectic periodical, has become, in a great measure, original; it has increased from 48 to 64 pages per month, and, together with this improvement, has been embellished with numerous illustrations. The conductors of the work have also reason to think that the character of its contents have given constantly increased satisfaction to its readers. In the forthcoming volume, renewed and increased efforts will be made to enhance its character as a Catholic and popular Magazine. The editor who has so far conducted it, having assumed the duty but temporarily, and being unable to bestow upon it the increased attention and labor that are required, will retire from the work; and, in doing so, he is happy to state that his office will be filled by a gentleman who has attained to a high position in the literary world, and whose abilities are a guarantee that the periodical, under his management, will be eminently deserving of public favor.
