The Making Of America Series
The "Making Of America" websites, that reside at both Cornell University and the University of Michigan, contain a large, on-line collection of 19th century magazines available to the general public.  These websites allow you to access photo-images of the actual pages from the magazines, so you can read the exact same articles people were reading over a hundred years ago.  The two sites have different collections of magazines and they're listed below (along with the links that will take you to the entire collection of magazines at each site).  You can look up articles by year and month of issue once you've selected the magazine you want to brouse.  In the NOTEs above you can read about two particularly interesting series of articles from Harper's New Monthly Magazine and The Century Magazine.  There is also a NOTE on The Continental Monthly Magazine that list a few of the Pre-Civil War articles on slavery that you might find interesting.
