FINE ARTS. Finden's Landscape Illustrations of the Bible, consisting of Views of the most Remarkable Places mentioned in the Scriptures. From finished Drawings made by STANFIELD, TURNER, &c. With Descriptions of the Plates, by the Rev. Thomas HARTWELL HORNE, B.D. John Murray, Albemarle Street.

In this number we have “ Damascus,” “ Jacob's Well near Sechem," “ Jeru. salem and the Temple," and the “ Broken Statue of Memnon at Tbebes,” all admirably engraved and full of poetry. This work has been an undertaking attended with great expense, but which nevertheless will, we have no doubt, fully reward the enterprise of the publisher. It is indeed a work for which we ought to feel grateful to Mr. Murray. It is impossible to examine the plates without the mind falling into serious contemplation and holy breathings. Every view recals the most interesting parts of the Scriptures, and we pause and think, we trust, with benefit to ourselves. May God prosper it, for every copy wbich is sold will make a better man. Switzerland. By WILLIAM BEATTIE, M.D. Graduate of the University

of Edinburgh, Member of the Royal College of Physicians, London, &c. &c. Illustrated by a Series of Views, taken expressly for this Work, by W. H. BARTLETT, Esq. Part XIV. George Virtue, 26, Ivy Lane.

It is almost supererogatory to mention this beautiful work. The sale bas been so enormous, that if it were not to acknowledge that we have received the number, we should leave it unnoticed, for we can be of no service to it. The plates of this

H

number consist of the “ Cathedral of Sion in Valais," “ Bellenzona," “ Castle of the Bishop of Sion,” and “ Friberg.” The last is a most beautiful specimen of light and fairy engraving. Stanfield's Coast Scenery, a Series of Views in the British Channel, and

on the Coasts of England, Scotland, Ireland, France, and Germany, and other Picturesque Portions of the European Continent. By CLARKSON STANFIELD, Esq. R. A. Part IV. Smith, Elder, and Co., Cornhill.

“ Portsmouth Harbour," " The Semaphore," “ Arched Rock at the Nicolles Passage,” and “ Havre de Grace," are the four plates in this number. Like every thing which has been touched by Stanfield, they are excellent; particularly the « Arched Rock by Moonlight.” The time will come when early impressions of this national work will be as valuable as they will be scarce.

Royal Submarine Exhibition, No. 209, Regent Street. We have visited this exhibition, and find it on various accounts well deserving a visit. The piece of ordnance recovered from the Royal George is a glorious instrument of destruction. Independently of the treasures recovered from the deep, the diving apparatus is shown to the visitors. Around the room there are views of the Royal George in her various states, from all the pride and power of war, to the submerged and shell-laden wreck. We repeai, that a half hour cannot be better employed than in visiting this very interesting and unique exhibition. A Panoramic View of the Capture and Taming of Wild Elephants on the

Island of Ceylon. By WILLIAM DANIELL, R.A.

This is certainly a splendid piece of art, and remarkable not only as such, but on account of the very curious process it so beautifully exemplifies. It is exhibited at the room of the Society of Painters in Water Colours in Pall Mall East. The panorama is of an oval form, which rather detracts from the complete illusion, as the horizon is, and will remain, perfectly circular; at least, until we see what the approaching comet may do. We think that the foreground is scarcely vividly enough thrown in. For the rest of the painting, it is extremely good, and just what we should expect from an artist so able as Mr. Daniels.

THE COMMERCIAL RELATIONS OF THE COUNTRY. It would appear that great wealth, or the great masses of paper or coin that represent it, make now the staple marketable commodity over all the civilized world. Transactions in money and in the funds usurp the precedence over all other mercantile operations. The Royal Exchange is becoming daily more and more a money market, and the merchant in bonâ fide merchandise is pushed aside by the bill-broker and the capitalist, who works his capital in the shape of money only. As far as we can learn, there has been no great alteration in our foreign commerce since the last month. In manufactured goods, notwithstanding our heavy taxes, we are still able, generally speaking, to undersell the rest of the world, but to do so, are obliged to grind the English operative to the very dust. It seems, from the appearances of events, that we shall soon no longer enjoy our privileged and lucrative trade with Portugal. The Portuguese were always a grateful race and much attached to those nations, their superiors in every thing, and if any one country has done them most essential service, to that country they are sure to be most devoted. We know what we have to expect from the new commercial treaty of Donna Maria, especially if the conducting of the negociation should fall to the lot of Lord Palmerston. Even Poulet Thompson begins to see the disadvantages of the reciprocity treaties, in which the advantages are all on one side. Our colonial trade is languishing, especially that part of it derivable from the West Indies—we have not yet seen the worst of it. With the East, every thing is still on trial. As to our inland trade, there is difficulty every where, but as yet nowhere de. spondency.

THE MONEY MARKET.-The fluctuations in the funds have been by no means commensurate with the political disturbances. Our own securities have been tolerably firm. The drain upon the market was scarcely felt in paying up the instalment on the new loan. The most uncertain securities have been the Spanish. All sorts of tricks have been resorted to by the bulls and bears. The above is the state of the market on the 28th instant,

CHARLES HENRY ADAMS.

MISCELLANEOUS, PHILOSOPHICAL, &c. THE YAGU ARUNDI.—This beautiful species of felina, known to naturalists only by the description given of it by Azara, in his travels in South America, bas been brought for the first time to this country, and arrived last week in the Louisa Bailey, from Guiana. It belonged to Mrs. Alboua, and has been presented by her to the Surrey Zoological Gardens. Its general form and character strongly resemble those of the puma, but having the limbs more slender in proportion to its size, the head more pointed, the strength of the jaws and teeth proportionably less, and the tail one third of the animal's own length. The colour is a deep grey, produced by each bair being ringed alternately with black and white. It is an inhabitant of the deep recesses of the forests of Paraguay and Guiana, climbing trees readily, and preying upon monkeys and small birds ; but will boldly attack large quadrupeds. Its possession will form a valuable addition to our knowledge of the history of this genus of animal.
