A N UMBER of the most respectable Colonists ?^*- have expressed themselves desirous to support the pub licationofa weekly periodical similar to the London Sa turday Magazine, with a view of diffusing through all classes of the Colony a general love for literature at a rate cheap enough to bring it within the reach of every person tiisposcd to read. It is considered that such a work, wholly unconnected with pjluics, may be acceptable to the South Australian public, as tbe vehicle of useful knowledge, pleasant instruc tion, and humourous entertainment iu moments of leisure from more absorbing pursuit*. Is is, therefore, proponed on concluding the second volume of the South Australian Magazine, to alter the character of that work, its thape, and price, and under ad ditional editorial management, to publish in its stead, on every Saturday, a Magazine, to be called the South Austra lian Saturday Magazine, at tho low price of threepence a number. The work is intended to contain as much variety as pos sible, in original contributions of local or general interest. Articles on the Natural History of the Province, original poetry of merit, tales, narratives, and miscellaneous sub jects, light literature, with occasional remarks upon and exti acts from modern published works of established renu.
tatiuu. The first number for each succeeding month will ecntain a short record of the transactions of the past month, liaeli number will contain eight octavo pages of the size of the LoDdon Saturday Magazine in double columns. Adver tisements will bo published with the Magazine on the most reasonable terms. It is needless to add that it is only by an extensive circu latio n that the expenses necessary in getting up such a work can be repaid, and that regularity and punctuality are espe cially desirable in its appearance. To insure in part tnese objects, the Col.mi.-ts are ear nesty requested to subscribe torsucli a nmn'jer of copies as they may choose for six months certain, this enabling the Editors to prepare anj |,ubli ,!i the Magazine weekly without delay, hesitation, or riti for a time which will cither establish its success coni^li-icl/, w+i'ru.u its fji'lure r» ..3 utidci- ' taking. Contribution! and advertisements ate requested to be ad dressed to the Editors of tlie South Australian Saturday Magazine, at the Register Office, or at Mr Plata's Library, or to Mr Deacon, North-terrace, by whom subscriptions will be received. The first number will appear immediately on the comple tion of some preliminary arrangement, of which due notice will be given.
