HE BROADWAY” is our Title,
and our Scheme is as broad as our
In this era of International Congresses and International Colleges, of International Coinage and International Cookery, and, best of all, of International Eshitities, fruitful in honourable rivalry, in friendly competition, in peace and good fellowship, we do but bow to the spirit of the age, and follow in the track which the sisest and best of our Teachers have marked out in establishing that which, to a certain extent, may be considered an International Magazine.
It has been made a matter of reproach against “Quarles' Emblems," that they were so very subtle as to be incomprebenaible to the majority of students. Such an accusation cannot be levelled against our symbolism. All who run may read it. There is a Broadway in London, halfFuy up Lavizate Hul. There is a Broadway in New York, running through the entire island of Manhattan. Britannia, as everybody knows, resides at the Bank of Englaad, shere she is perpetually having her portrait engraved on ten-pound notes. Columbia is politically at homme in Washington; but in literature and commerce she equally patronises Boston and New York. It is our 23test desize that Britannia should shake hands with Columbis intellectually, and that both should shake hands with us financially. It is our heartfelt wish that the Dore of Peace should put the Lion and the Eagle on the very best terms with one another, and that all the three, stretching the Atlantic cable as a tight-rope, should begin to dance a grand international “ break down," and never lezre of. We do not mean to break down, if the British and American public will only lend us “their kind hearts and hands." The First Number of “THE BROADWAY," price Sixponse, or 25 Cents, will be published on the 15th of August, 1857. The Magazine will consist of Eighty pages, illustrated by our best artists and our foremost engravers. The tone of our periodical will be decidedly entertaining, recreative, and light; that is to say, we shall endeavour to be meiable without being frivolous; and if we occasionally
at being instructive, we shall most scrupulously avoid being indigsstible. Politics we shall eschew; politics being dull things, which few understand, and fewer still Is any better for understanding.
The composition of our literary staff will be eminently Inscreational : a graceful blending of right English oak and ash with the tough but pliant hickory, the graceful ist n-ete maple, and the fascinating butternut. We desize that the English green lane should lead to the wide Westem prairie, and that our little English brooks which, un as they are," run on for ever," should empty themhelves into the giant lakes of the American continent. To sbandon metaphor, we have made, and are making, arrangements with the best authors and authoresses of the United States for the supply of original MSS., exdazively to be published by us.
Some of our British contributors, also, may from time to time touch on American subjects: the international” character of our Magazine will thus be sedulously kept in view, to the drawing closer together, we trust, of the bonds of union
An Amphytrion who rightly understands the laws of bspitality, no sooner sees his guests fairly seated round bis board than he courteously circulates among them the bill of fare of the banquet which is to come. There are borze hosts, indeed, so complaisant as to slip a prettily
printed menu into the envelope which contains the invitation itself. Adopting this latter plan, we may give some inkling of our bill of fare here, although “THE BROADWAY” dinner-bell will not ring until next August. Our piece de résistance will be supplied by the Author of "GUY LIVINGSTONE,” who, in the first number of “THE BROADWAY," will commence a new serial novel, entitled "Brakespeare; or, The Fortunes of a Free Lance." The Fish and Game Department will be confided to Ernest Griset, who will, in the very first number, come out with a “Wonderful Crab," served on no less than eight plates; and among our culinary providers will be found-F. C. BURNAND, who_“happy thought!"--will dish up for us some merry thoughts. Tom Hood will provide a toothsome joint in fun, to which even the succulence of “Precocious Piggy" will be insipid ; JOHN HOLLINGSHLAD, a. plain English cook, but whose viands have been as highly appreciated at City Companies' dinners “Under Bow Bells” as in the luxurious banquets of the Alhambra (at Grenada) and the Alcazar (at Se ville), will do something noticeable in the way of chops and steaks for those whose appetites are too robust for putty little tiny kickshaws;' CHARLEY KNIGHT and John OxEXFORD will furnish some savoury side-dishes; SAMUEL Lover is busy on a pretty piece of confectionery, representing a "Low-backed Car" adorned with "Four-leaved Shamrocks ;" Prof. PEPPER will provide his popular condiment to season the frog which Thomas (the) ARCHER shot; W. H. Russell, LL.D., of the Times, has promised us some Indian curry, some Russian caviar, a Hungarian ragout, and, perhaps, a few American oysters and canvas-backed ducks; G. A. SALA will oblige us with some Mr. Sala, when any of that kind of dish is asked for ; ARTHUR SKETCHLEY may be expected to contribute_some delightful tit-bits, with “Brown" sauce; and EDMUND Yates will dish us up some rare roast mutton from a "Black Sheep." There will also be entrées by-ARTHUR W. A. Beckett, R. M. BALLANTYNE, Rev. J. M. Bellew, ROBERT BUCHANAN, LEICESTER BUCKINGHAM, J. T. BURGESS, H. J. BYROX, SAVILE CLARKE, STIRLING COYNE, Rev. J. E. Cox, BIDNEY DARYL, Percy FITZGERALD, W. W. Fenn, Dr. FENNELL, HaiN FRISWELL, W. S. GILBERT, ANDREW HALLIDAY, M. LAING MEASON, THOMAS MILLER, "NICHOLAS," Dr. PEARD, W. B. RANDS, T. W. ROBERTSON, CLARK RUSHELL, William SAWYER, CLEMENT SCOTT, ASHBY STERRY, W. B. TEGETMEIER, and W. Moy Thomas.
Of lady cooks, all “professed," we have enough to make Mrs. Glasse envious. The names of Miss AMELIA B. Edwards, Mrs. RIDDELL (the Authoress of “George Geith,'') and Miss HESBA STRETTOX, may be taken as earnest of the array of feminine talent which will be found in “THE BROADWAY;" while from the other side of the Atlantic will come, preserved in ice or in hermetically-sealed cans, a variety of American dainties, the particulars of which will be disclosed at an early date. Our patrons need not be in the least apprehensive that in this case "too many cooks will spoil the broth.” Every cook will attend to his own broth, and be responsible for its strength and flavour.
We have thus sketched out, as comprehensively as we are enabled to do, the plan of an undertaking which, energetically conducted, cannot fail, we hope, to achieve a legitimate success. The ultimate verdict rests, of course, with the public; but our Way is very Broad indeed. The world may enter in numbers as fast as ever they please without fear of being jostled or crushed. There will be plenty to see on both sides of the way; and there shall be nothing narrow in our proceedings save our price, which may be emphatically said to be “as thin as a sixpence."
