NEW ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE.

SERIAL, under the title of

AND XUYEROUS OTHERS.
sivance, and the number of readers has been so rapidly increasing from year to year, that it becomes the duty of publishers to be constantly improving the quality of the publications which they offer for the approval of the public.
In this spirit the Publishers of CASSELL'S MAGAZINE believe that the time has now arrived when they may venture to issue, for the trifling cost of One Penny Weekly, or Sixpence Monthly, a Magazine which, for the character of its contents, shall be inferior to none of its higher-priced contemporaries.
In a prospectus of how it is proposed to accomplish this, the Publishers will content themselves
The Illustrations will be by the best artists, amongst whom may be mentioned, J. D. WATSON, W. Berstos, C. Green, C. Robinson, H. G. Wells, Miss EDWARDS, E. Hall, W. H. Fisk, T. D. Scott. Fiction o powerful interest will form the prominent feature of its pages, but with this will be associated Popular Articles on Topics of the Day, Striking Narratives, Biographical Memoirs, and Papers on Social Subjects, which, it is believed, will be read with interest in every family circle to which CASSELL'S MAGAZINE is destined to find its way. It will also contain short Poting by eminent writers ; but the object of its Editor will be to avoid all subjects which, however acceptable to classes or individuals, are not of general interest.
It will be well printed on superior toned paper, each Weekly Number consisting of Sixteen Pages crown 4to ; the experience of the Publishers in their other popular works having induced them to believe that it is possible to secure for a First-class Magazine, such as it is hoped to make CASSELL'S MAGAZINE in all its departments, that widely-extended circulation which alone csaid justify its publication at so low a price as One Penny Weekly, or SIXPENCE Monthly.
With these few words, then, they commit this new undertaking to the kind consideration of their many friends, asking their assistance in the endeavour to place within the reach of all a Magazine containing , in an attractive form, the thoughts of the most popular writers
of our time, l'astrated by the pencils of the best living artists. Always amusing, entertaining, and instructive, it is believed that, week by week
and month by month, it will be warmly welcomed as a cheerful companion for every family fireside ; and at the close of the year each subscriber will find himself in possession of a handsome volume, the permanent value of which, whether for quantity or quality, will not be excelled.
N.B.-The FIRST WEEKLY NUMBER, price One Penay, will be pablished on March 6th, and every
Engraving of "The South Sea Bubble" will be issued Gratuitously with the part also.
