On the 1st of January 1818, is intended to be published,

(PRICE. ONE SHILLING,)

The first Number of a Monthly Work, entitled
THE SYLPH,

OR

Lady's Magazine,

FOR

YORKSHIRE, DERBYSHIRE AND THE ADJOINING

COUNTIES.

Every number will contain forty eight demy duodecimo pages, and will be embellished with an AQUATINTA VIEW of some favorite WATERING PLACE, of the scenery near it, or of some other interesting object; a coloured plate of the most FASHIONABLE COSTUME of the month, and a pattern for LADIES ORNAMENTAL, or NEEDLE WORK.

The Contents of each Number will be arranged in the following order :1. ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE, on such subjects as are particularly useful, or interesting, to the Fair.

2. THE BALNEA; or History, Rules, Regulations and Amusements of Watering Places. 3. ANALYSIS of, and EXTRACTS from, those Publications which are particularly adapted to the perusal of Ladies, or owe their production to the Female pen.

4. BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES, of eminent Ladies, within the range of the Sylph.

5. THE GREEN HOUSE; or Botanical Notices, &c. of rare and curious Plants, Exotic or Indigenous.

6. ORIGINAL POETRY: with Enigmas, Rebuses, Charades, &c. and occasionally the Music of favorite Airs, Dances, &c.

7. RECORD OF FASHION AND AMUSEMENT.

This will include an account of the

nost elegant Fashions; of the public Amusements of the Mouth; the Drama, Exhibitions, &c. &c.

8. DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE; including the formation of Benevolent Societies, the Transactions of Philanthropic Institutions, remarkable Births, Marriages, Deaths, &c.

In presenting this Prospectus to the LADIES of Yorkshire, Derbyshire, &c. the EDITOR feels conscious of offering them a useful and amusing companion. Like the Aërial Being whose name it assumes, the SYLPH will be anxious to collect whatever may exalt the Female character, improve the understanding, and expand the mind. The Guardian of Morals and of Virtue, it will ever be on the wing to give notice of the first approach of Vice, in whatever garb she may venture to appear. The Friend of Innocence, its counsels will be directed to the protection of Virgin Purity, and uniting the useful with the agreeable, the Sylph will range the realms of Fancy and Amusement to cull the sweetest Flowers of every soil.

To profess much and to perform little, has been frequently imputed to the projectors of new publications. Having developed its principles, the SYLPH rests its claim to encouragement on that developement alone, well satisfied to meet with patronage, so long, and so long only, as it shall be found to adhere to the plan presented.

Names of Subscribers received in SHEFFIELD by A. JEWITT, Lee Croft, Editor and Publisher of the NORTHERN STAR; by Mess. PINNOCK AND MAUNDER, 267, STRAND, LONDON, and by all the Agents for the NORTHERN STAR, in YORKSHIRE, DERBYSHIRE, and the ADJOINING COUNTIES.
