New-York, July 25, 1845.
Dear Sir,

You will perceive by the Prospectus of the 17th volume, on the cover, that the arrange-
ments with the late publisher of the Review, Mr. Langley, having terminated, its publication, as well as
Editorial direction, will remain in the hands of the undersigned, one of its proprietors from the outset.
I trust that you will be disposed to continue one of its readers and subscribers. I address you this note.
because the rule of payment in advance has not hitherto been strictly carried out, and has come, with
many, to be regarded as a dead letter. Satisfied that it is of vital necessity, under the present great
reduction in price, I have given directions that the present Number should be forwarded to the existing
list of subscribers ; hereafter the work will be sent only to those remitting the amount of their subscrip-
tion. This will operate as a general and uniform rule, without discrimination; and I invite your al-
tention to it, because I should regret that inadvertence or neglect on your part should cause the stoppage
of your numbers. I also take the occasion and the liberty to express the hope that you will feel disposed
to take some interest, to aid in sustaining the Revier successfully through the present change in price,
by procuring it as many other subscribers as may be within the circle of your influence.

Very Respectfully,

J. L. O'Sullivan.

LIKENESS OF JACKSON IN HIS LAST DAYS.

The Next Number of the Democratic Review will contain a very beautiful likeness of
JACKSON IN His Last Days, engraved in very superior style, in fine mezzotint, larger than the
usual plates of the Review. It is done at an extra and very heavy expense. It is a deeply inter-
esting picture, and is pronounced by Mr. Van Buren, as well as others who have seen him still
more recently, to give a more perfect idea of the old man than any other likeness. It is engraved
from an admirable daguerreotype, which an artist went to the Hermitage from Washington to take,
a few weeks before the General's death.

The succeeding Portrait will be that of Cave Johnson, the Postmaster General.
