ENTERED according to Act of Congress, in the year 1841, by
GEORGE A. PETERS,
In the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the Southern District of New-York.
ADVERTISEMENT TO THE FIRST VOLUME.
THE Conductors of this Magazine have had two sources of care and anxiety: one arising from a desire to be useful in the department of labor they have chosen; the other to benefit themselves in that labor as a business of life. In the last, every reasonable expectation has been met, while their books show that the work, at the close of its first volume, supports itself. They send the last number of this first volume to several thousand subscribers, who have borne a testimony in its favor, which has relieved also the first named source of their anxiety, and encouraged them to proceed with increasing animation and hope. The subjoined notices of the press, selected from a great variety of similar testimonies, are unequivocal.
NOTICES OF THE PRESS.
From the Boston Recorder.
WE cheerfully and confidently express the opinion that the PATRIARCH is pre-eminently entitled to the patronage which it modestly claims. An object more important to the rising generation of our country, in its relations both to time and eternity, cannot be proposed. If parents can be enlightened and moved to judicious and efficient action, the object will be secured. And that they will be enlightened and moved, we have reason to believe, if they shall avail themselves of the instructions of "the Patriarch." Though we have not the pleasure of personal acquaintance with the editor, his character is too favorably and widely known to leave the shadow of a doubt that, with the co-operation he can readily secure, he will supply the public with a periodical of surpassing interest and value. We feel constrained to renew the expression of our hope that the Patriarch will find its way into thousands of families that as yet know it only by "the hearing of the ear."
From the Richmond Christian Advocate.
We paid a high, and not undeserved compliment to this periodical when it firs appeared. The second number kept up the interest of the first, and it is by no means abated by the following. The style and character of its articles, the neatness of its execution, and its cheapness, entitle it to a rank alongside of the best publications of the day. We know of no work of the kind that could with more safety be placed within reach of the whole family.
From the Portland Tribune.
We recommend this magazine to all, who wish to bring up their families in the good old patriarchal way. The work is enriched by valuable contributions from the pen of its able editor, and other distinguished gentleinen-among which, we notice the frequent effusions from the soul of our friend William Cutter.
From the New-York Mechanic.
This periodical is decidedly the best got up work for the price in the country. Fathers and mothers, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters-all will find this work really useful and entertaining.
The PATRIARCH bids fair to be one of the most useful and interesting publications with which the American press is teeming. One more neatly executed, and abounding with matter of a more solid, elevated and valuable character, has not met our eye. We have been instructed, entertained and delighted by a perusal of the numbers before us. Every family ought to take it, and every member thereof ought to read it. Raleigh Star.
The introductory article, by the editor, is on "the Family as an elementary school of education." We should be glad to give this article entire to our readers, but its length precludes it. We however advise all to obtain the work, and read it for themselves. We are sure they will never regret the price paid for it, but will be amply recompensed in the rich family instruction conferred. Baptist Record.
Well got up, and contains sound and valuable articles. The design of the work is unquestionably good, and if carried on in the spirit in which it has commenced, “The Patriarch" will prove a valuable auxiliary in the cause of instruction. Saturday
Its editorial department evinces judgment and ability. Philadelphia Public Ledger.
The whole is a very neat specimen of typography, while the reading matter is excellently adapted to the purpose intended. It is well conducted. United States Gazette.
We know not the time when we have seen a periodical of the kind, which we could so cordially recommend, both on account of its neatness and even elegance of execution, and on account of the useful and entertaining character of its contents. Biblical Recorder.
The third number fully sustains the high reputation of the preceding numbers, and gives a guaranty of the ability with which the work is conducted. Christian Intelligencer.
This is the cheapest periodical published in the country, taking into consideration the style of execution and intrinsic value of the matter it contains. Cheraw S. C. Gazette.
The pieces are good. We hope the work will be successful, as its object is most excellent, and publications of this character are most sorely needed in the present state of American society. Baptist Advocate.
The PATRIARCH is the cheapest and best Family Magazine which comes to our office. Its table of contents is large and various, and its embellishments very good. Zion's Herald and Wesleyan Journal.
