In bringing to a close the Ninth Volume of Harper's New Monthly MAGAZINE, the Publishers gladly renew their acknowledgments to the Press and the Public for the continued and increasing favor which has rewarded their exertions.

Although the Publishers have been obliged to devote no small portion of their attention to the re-establishment of other departments of their business, they are confident that the Volume now completed will show that the interests of the Mag-azine have not been neglected. The Illustrations exceed, both in number and expense, those furnished in any previous Volume, while the literary matter has been selected from a field continually widening. The mechanical execution has been less immediately under their personal supervision than heretofore, yet the general appearance of the Magazine has not materially suffered. The Publishers are happy to announce that the manufacturing portion of their establishment has now been reconstructed on a scale of much greater amplitude and completeness than before ; and they are confident that the succeeding Volumes of the Magazine will be produced in a more attractive form than any that have appeared.

The Publishers have abundant reason to believe that no change is demanded in the general principles upon which the Magazine has been conducted. It has subserved no sectional or party interests; and not an article has been admitted into its pages to which any reasonable or just exception could be taken. The strict oversight that has secured this result will still be maintained. The Magazine will, as heretofore, be in all respects National, and not Sectional. The purpose of its Publishers will continue to be to present the best productions of American and Foreign Literature in the most attractive form. The series of Illustrated Articles already prepared for the next Volume exceed in number and interest any that they have presented, and the number of contributors from whom articles have been secured has been greatly augmented. The Editorial Department will present its accustomed variety, embracing every topic of interest, from the gravest discussion and criticism to the most piquant details of gossip and anecdote.

The Publishers feel warranted, from the materials now in their possession, in assuring the subscribers to the Magazine that the next Volume will, in every point of interest, exceed any one that they have heretofore produced.
