THE

47 LUDGATE HILL Dec. 31, 1862.

HE new ventures in periodical literature, which custom confines chiefly to this period of the year, are neither so numerous nor so important as on some previous occasions, Among the most ambitious we find the Reader, a critical weekly journal, which is announced, somewhat suddenly, to make its first appearance on Saturday next, numbering, we understand, among its contributors the Rev. Charles Kingsley, the Author of Tom Brown's School Days, Mr. Dicey, Mr. Ludlow, Mr. Holt Hutton, Professor Maurice, and others. A Sculptors' Journal, to appear

monthly, starting with Lives of the Sculptors, by J. H. Foley, R.A., Recollections of the Sculpture in the Great Exhibition, an engraving of the Tinted Venus, and other features, is a novelty in magazine literature which will, we hope, supply the sad want of instruction in this branch of art among the general public. We observe also the Weekly Vocalist, a cheap miscellany of music; and a new weekly popular journal entitled the Key; but by far the most important of the new monthlies which have appeared since the famous advent of the Cornhill, is the Churchman's Family Magazine, the first number of which, just published by Messrs. Hogg & Sons, fully redeems the promises of its prospectus, being filled with varied and interesting matter, while the numerous full-paged illustrations, on toned paper, by C. W. Cope, R.A., J. Millais, L. Huard, J. D. Watson, and others, are above all praise. Two new stories, a critical article on Mr. Anthony Trollope's Views of the Clergy, historical sketches of the Archbishops of Canterbury, and other papers on the Army Reading-Rooms, the Prince of Wales' Tour in the East (with woodcut sketches), Ladies' Work in a Country Parish, and Christmas Day in a London Hospital, are the most noticeable features in No. 1.

The following is our usual summary of the more important publications of the fortnight :— In LITERATURE, SCIENCE, and ART, we have a volume of Remains of the late Arthur Henry Hallam, the son of the historian, whose death gave rise to Mr. Tennyson's In Memoriam. The Remains consist of short poems, essays, &c., and although long since privately printed, are now published for the first time; we have also a work entitled Possibilities of Creation, the author of which attempts to illustrate the wisdom of Providence by showing the confusion which must have arisen from a different disposition of the Universe; A Historical and Critical Survey of the Literature of Germany, under the title of Diutiska, by Gustav Solling; The Weather-Book, a Manual of Practical Meteorology, by Admiral Fitzroy; Sixteen Illustrations of the Idylls of the King, drawn and etched in copper by Amy Butts; and lastly, a translation of the great German writer, Jean Paul Richter's, allegorical romance or prose poem, entitled Titan, in two thick volumes, the translator being Mr. Charles T. Brookes.

IN HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, Mr. G. W. Robertson publishes in 2 vols. A History of Scotland under her Early Kings, embracing the History of the Kingdom to the close of the Thirteenth | Century; and we find a first volume of Canon Stanley's Lectures on the History of the Greek Church, extending from Abraham to Samuel, with Maps and Plans; a spirited volume of Sporting Adventures, entitled Shooting and Fishing in Lower Brittany, by John Kemp; a somewhat similar volume, entitled Life in Normandy, which consists of Sketches of Fishing, Farming, Cooking, Natural History, and Politics, with Illustrations drawn from Nature, 2 vols.; and Lamps of the Church, under which title the Rev. Henry_Clissold publishes a series of interesting Biographical Sketches of Eminent Churchmen of the Present Century.

In GEOGRAPHY AND TRAVEL, Mr. Hartwig publishes his handsome volume on The Tropical World, comprising the Natural History of the Animal and Vegetable Kingdoms in the Equatorial Regions, with plates and numerous woodcuts; and we have a third volume of the Narrative of the Circumnavigation of the Globe by the Austrian Frigate Novara, by Dr. Karl Scherzer.

In THEOLOGY, Miss Margaret Goodman, the Authoress of The Recollections of a Sister of Mercy, publishes an interesting volume on the Sisterhoods of the Church of England, with Notices of some Charitable Sisterhoods in the Romish Church; and we find a first volume of a re-issue, enlarged and improved, of Dr. Kitto's Cyclopædia of Biblical Literature, edited by W. Lindesay Alexander; a work on Clerical Subscription, advocating a consultation for the revision of the Prayer Book, by the Rev. Charles Hebert; England under God, by Archdeacon Evans, which, as its name implies, is written to show the special working of Providence in the history and condition of England; Look and Live, or Present Salvation for All who will Accept it, by Rev. J. Cumming; and a beautiful edition of the Letters of Samuel Rutherford, the Scottish Presbyterian Divine, with Sketches of his Correspondents, edited by Rev. A. A. Bonar, 2 vols. In FICTION, we have Mr. Wilkie Collins's story of No Name reprinted, in advance of its completion in All the Year Round, in 3 thick vols.; The Cost of a Secret, by the Author of Agnes Tremorne (Miss Isabella Blagden), 3 vols.; David Elginbrod, by George Mac-| Donald, 3 vols., the author of which published, some time since, a volume of poems which attracted notice, and now, we believe, makes his first appearance as a novelist; Niccolo Marini, or the Mystery Solved, a Tale of Naples Life, 2 vols.; Such Things Are, by the Author of Recommended to Mercy, 3 vols.; Married in Haste, a Story of Every-day Life, by Lascelles Wraxall, 3 vols.; Myself and My Relatives, a Story, reprinted from Chambers's Edinburgh Journal, 1 vol.; Richard Langdon, or Foreshadowed, 1 vol.; and Thalatta, or the Great Commoner, a Political Romance, reprinted from Fraser's Magazine, 1 vol.

In POETRY, A Volume of Selections from the Poems of Mr. Robert Browning, made with the Author's sanction, each piece of which is complete in itself. And among NEW EDITIONS, the Memoirs of George Wilson, by his sister; Dr. Colenso's work on the Pentateuch and the Book of Joshua; a 2nd of Miss Whately's Ragged Life in Egypt; and an 11th of Haydn's Dictionary of Dates, revised and enlarged by Benjamin Vincent.

Mr. MURRAY will publish in January, in 1 vol. small 8vo., Miscellanies, collected and edited by Earl Stanhope; also this day, A Critical History of Free Thought in Reference to the Christian Religion, being the Bampton Lectures for 1862, by Rev. Adam Storey Farrar, M.A. Messrs. LONGMAN & Co. have just ready the second part of Dr. Colenso's Critical Examination of the Pentateuch and the Book of Joshua, which will discuss chiefly the age and authorship of

the Pentateuch.

Messrs. Low & Co. will publish in a few days, in stiff boards, A Reply to "the Affectionate and Christian Address of many Thousands of Women of Great Britain and Ireland to their Sisters the Women of the United States of America," by Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe.

The question of whether the Author of Vivian Grey and Sybil did or did not edit the Conservative journal started by the late Mr. John Murray, under the title of the Representative, will probably not be definitely settled until Mr. Disraeli himself interposes with a confession or a disclaimer. The Representative, as most readers know, was started with great spirit, and with large expenditure; but, after a short career, proved a failure and a heavy loss to its projectors. Whether Mr. Disraeli, who was at the time a very young man, and almost wholly untried, was really called upon by Mr. Murray to take the control of so serious a venture; or whether-which seems far more probable-the late Mr. Lockhart was the presiding spirit of the Representative, is the question. The accomplished editor of the Edinburgh Courant, Mr. James Hannay, first started this historic doubt with regard to a long accepted literary anecdote, in a somewhat mysterious article recently published in that journal. Some journals, however, still doubt; and Mr. Hannay rejoins with a comment implying that he derives his information from Mr. Disraeli. "We had," says Mr. Hannay, "the best-nay, the only-authority for what we said; since even to Mr. Murray the question of the Representative's editorship is not a personal one. We now add, that Mr. Disraeli's long silence on the matter admits of an explanation which will gratify his admirers of all politics. He hesitated to come forward with any eagerness to make a denial which might have been interpreted as springing from a wish to disclaim newspaper associations. But when the story was passing into literature, in such books as the biography of an eminent British writer, it was time to protest against its further propagation, once and for all."

A rise of over 30 per cent. in the price of paper in America has caused a panic among the newspapers and cheap periodicals, who, as usual in such cases, attribute this addition to their manifold troubles to a combination among the manufacturers to keep up prices. A similar rise, however, has taken place in the price of most other articles of general consumption, and it is therefore probable that the advance in paper is more nominal than real, being, in fact, only an indication of the depreciation of paper money, now practically the only currency in use in the United States. The fact, however, is not the less a hardship, and must be placed among the numerous inconveniences attending arbitrary fluctuations in the standard of value-it being, of course, impossible for an established journal to alter its price to accord with the daily variations in the premium on metallic money. Among the signs of this inconvenience, we observe that the publishers of weekly religious newspapers in New York and Boston have recommended that the price of the papers should be raised or the size reduced on the 1st of January; and that notices of marriages, deaths, and societies, should be paid for as advertisements; that bene.. volent institutions should not issue newspapers for universal circulation at less than the cost, supplying the deficiencies from funds contributed by the Christian public for specific objects. The demand for the abolition of the protective duty on imported white paper-a duty said to be absolutely prohibitory-is certainly a reasonable one; such duties being injurious to the consumer and entirely unproductive to the revenue. Unfortunately, however, our Transatlantic contemporaries have not hitherto been distinguished as advocates of free trade, and do not even now appear to perceive the applicability of their arguments to any other article in the tariff.

Mr. Smiles, the author of Self-Help, and the Lives of the Engineers, is, we believe, engaged in writing a History of the Staple Manufactures of England.

A new child's book of comic pictures with rhymes, published by Messrs. DEAN & Co., entitled Ye Comical Rhymes of Ancient Times, deserves special notice, the pictures, which are printed in red, with emblazoned letters also in red, being extremely quaint and humorous, and the nonsensical rhymes which accompany them conceived in the true spirit of children's fun.

The third and fourth volumes of The History of Normandy and England, by Sir Francis Palgrave, are nearly ready for publication, and will complete the work. Such portions as were not printed at the time of the author's decease have been supplied from his notes and MSS. by his son. The work will be published by Messrs. Parker, Son, & Bourn.

It is stated that the Penny Newsman, which was the earliest of the penny weekly papers, has passed into the proprietorship of Mr. Edwin Chadwick, the well-known writer on questions of social and political science, and will contain a series of articles from his pen on questions relating to the condition of the working classes.

Mr. Froude, the eminent historian, who has been the editor of Fraser's Magazine since the death of Mr. J. W. Parker, is about to resign that post.

Mr. B. BLAKE, of the Strand, is about to re-issue the Musical Herald in weekly numbers, containing 8 pages 4to., price one penny.

The new illustrated volume for the drawing-room table, entitled Highlanders at Home, published by Messrs. DEAN & Co., is of a somewhat novel character, the illustrations, large folio size, being also reproductions of black-lead pencil drawings, taken by a new process so skilfully as scarcely to be distinguishable from pencil hand drawings. Each picture represents some custom or phase of life among the Highlanders. The drawings are by R. R. McIan, the letterpress descriptions by James Logan.

AUCTIONS DURING THE ENSUING FORTNIGHT.-Messrs. Puttick & Simpson, Jan. 2 and 3, Theological and miscellaneous books, the stock of Mr. J. S. Leslie, of Great Queen Street; Jan. 5 to 7, Library of a lady of Title, deceased.
