TO THE READER.

We are very glad to find so general an expression of the satisfaction of our subscribers at receiving the sixteen additional pages in each number. There are in this Volume two hundred pages more than in the last.

Among the longer and graver articles, we have been especially pleased with

Speculators among the Stars, from Black

wood,
Cardinal Mezzofanti, from the Edinburgh

Review,
Life of Dalton, from the Quarterly Re-

view,
Cardinal Wolsey, etc.,
Ballads of the People, from the West-

minster Review,
The Moravian Brethrep,onc of Chambers's

Monographs,
English Letter Writers, from Fraser's

Magazine,
Light Readings in Alison, from the New

Monthly Magazine,

The World to come, from the Christian

Observer,
How shall we deal with the War, etc.,
Boundary Map of Europe, from the Dub-

lin University Magazine,
The three first articles from Tait's Maga-

zine,

Times,
Lord Malion on the Declaration of Inde-

pendence, from The National Intelli

gencer,

Book,
Kossuth on the European War.

Our favorites among the lighter reading, are

Zaidee, From Blackwood,
Alwyn's First Wife, from Fraser,
The Second Baby, from Chambers,

Seven Poor Travellers, from Household

Words.

A very great increase of literary and political matter is given from The Times, Spectator, Examiner, and Economist.

The quantity of matter in the Living Age is equal to that in the whole of the following

for a year:

EDINBURGII Review,
QUARTERLY Review,
WESTMINSTER REVIEW,

North British Review,
Blackwood's MAGAZINE,

There is no magazine published in the country which contains more than about half the matter of the Living Age. The cost of the work is so great, that we really need the helping hands of such subscribers as are pleased and satisfied with it, to promote its circulation among their neighbors. The success of a work does not depend so much on its merits as on the zeal with which it is urged upon the public by the publisher. The Living Age has had no advantage of this kind. We have not liked to fill the papers with statements, that 6 on account of the immense demand we have been obliged to postpone the publication !” That “ the mails from all parts of the country were bringing so many orders to us, that when they were about fifty miles from Boston they were locked together in a great circle, so that they could get no nearer, till the line was fortunately broken by an earthquake and volcano, which gave some of them a sufficient start to get out of the way of the others; the bank notes of those which were blown up falling in a steady shower down our chimney for three weeks !”. On the contrary, we promise, and are really able, to supply punctually and promptly all orders with which we may be favored.
