Hon Thos Ruffin LLD

DEAR SIR :—

Having been honored by our respective Societies, with the Editorship of the N.C. University Magazine, we feel it our duty to make the Magazine worthy of the Institution whose organ it is. To do this, we are forced to ask the countenance and patronage of others. To whom can we look for support, with more propriety, than to our personal friends and the friends of the University?
Should you be pleased to send us your name, we trust you will not have cause to regret it.
The Magazine will be published about the first of each month (except January and July,) in the style of "Russell's," on good book paper; each number, besides LITHOGRAPH of some distinguished Carolinian, will contain 64 pages or more, making a neat volume of at least 640 pages. Terms, $2 per annum in advance; six copies for $10.
It will be our constant effort to publish a periodical adapted to the literary wants of Carolinians, since ours is the only purely literary monthly published in the State.
To accomplish our purpose we are pleased to announce that we have the promise of contributions from the pens of HON. WM. H. BATTLE , HON. W. A. GRAHAM , HON. JOHN H. BRYAN , HON. D. L. SWAIN , REV. FRANCIS L. HAWKS, R. B. CREECY, ESQ., R. P. DICK , ESQ., PROF. JOHN KIMBERLY , (as our European Correspondent,) and other able writers in this and other States. We, also, have reason to expect valuable aid from the fifteen mature scholars who compose the University Faculty.
As a stimulus to youthful emulation, a number of our pages will be devoted to the productions of our fellow-students; thus we hope to elevate the standard of literature in our midst.
With our first (the August number,) will begin a series of biographies of the N. C. Supreme Court Judges.
The Editorials, besides a record of College affairs, will contain an account of the doings of the Literary portion of N. C.; notices of new books; amusing paragraphs, &c.
The Students, unwilling to see the organ of our State University inferior to those of other Universities, will support us with great unanimity, but we can achieve success only when the distinguished men and liberal people of N. C. shall give us their countenance.
From you, as a friend either to us or the University we shall be grateful for patronage.

We have the honor to be, dear sir, Yours Respectfully,

W. J. HEADEN ,
