Discourses

The CAMPANER THAL; or,
on the Immortality of the Soul. By JEAN PAUL FR.
RICHTER. Translated from the German by JULIETTE
GOWA. Second Edition.

Report, we regret to say, is all we know of the 'Campaner Thal,' one of Richter's beloved topics, or rather the life of his whole philosophy, glimpses of which look forth in almost every one of his writings. He died while engaged, under recent and almost total blindness, in enlarging and remodelling this Campaner Thal.' The unfinished manuscript was borne upon his coffin to the burial vault; and Klopstock's hymn, Auferstehen wirst du !'Thou shalt arise, my soul,'-can seldom have been sung with more appropriate application than over the grave of Jean Paul."-CARLYLE'S MISCELLANIES.

Cloth, price Ss. 6d.

a Bio

WILLIAM WORDSWORTH:
graphy. By the Rev. EDWIN PAXTON HOOD.
"The great extent of Mr. Hood's reading-his thorough
intimacy with all the highest forms of our literature-bas
enabled him to bring to the illustration of Wordsworth's
mental character, and to the exposition of his style and
principles of poetry, an affluence of knowledge rarely to be
met with. His page literally blazes with poetry, rich and
eloquent dissertation, imagery and illusion, varied and
beautiful."- EVANGELICAL MAGAZINE.

Fourth Edition, price 18.
The SEARCH for a PUBLISHER; or,
Counsels for a Young Author. It contains Advice about
Binding, Composition, Printing, and Advertising: also
Specimens of Type and Sizes of Paper. It is a complete
Literary Guide for a Novice, and full of exact and trust-
worthy information. Sent post free.

"We wish we had seen such a book fifteen years ago, that's all. It is full of necessary information; and if thoroughly digested, it will save some head-aches, heart-aches, and perhaps despicable as the consideration must be to the child of genius, quaffing nectar above the clouds-a few golden sovereigns, bearing the image and superscription of Victoria the First."-CHRISTIAN WEEKLY NEWS.

By GEORGE AUGUSTUS SALA, Author of William Hogarth, A Journey Due North,' &c. "This is a work of broad and unquestionable genius."

DUTCH PICTURES:

with SOME SKETCHES in the FLEMISH MANNER.
By GEORGE AUGUSTUS SALA,

Author of William Hogarth,''Seven Sons of Mammon.'
"There is a genuine air of homespun earnestness about such a
picture as the following, which, though it might have been written
by Dickens, has more in it of Mr. Sala's personal bias."

SPECTATOR. "Mr. Sala is a masterly inventor of strange incident and delineator of strange character: herein there is no man living who has shown anything like similar power.' PRESS.

New Commercial & Political Magazine.

To be ready on March 25, 1862, price One Shilling,

THE FIRST NUMBER OF

THE EXCHANGE:

A MONTHLY REVIEW OF

COMMERCE, MANUFACTURES, & GENERAL POLITICS.

THOUGH there have been recently added to our periodical literature a goodly number of Magazines devoted to light and general topics, no organ has been projected for the special consideration of matters relating to Commerce, Manufactures, and Politics. The deficiency has been remarked by,many practical men of the day; but, so far, no attempt has been made to supply the acknowledged want. France has its "Journal des Economistes;" the Northern States of America have their "Hunt's Merchants' Magazine," and the Southern States their "De Bow's Review;" but England, the first commercial nation in the world, with its vast empire of Canada, Australasia, and both the Indies, possesses no publication of a like nature. The void is filled up to some extent by the "Bankers' Magazine," "The Economist," and one or two other weekly papers, and "The Times" and the daily papers; but the first of these is almost entirely devoted to monetary affairs; whilst the remainder, from the frequency of their publication, the obligation they are under to keep up with the tide of events, and general news, and the limited space at their disposal, have rarely the time, and often not the room, to give that calm and thorough consideration to the various politico-economical topics of the day which is called for by their great importance to the commercial and general community. The newspaper articles are necessarily brief, often hurriedly written, and, for obvious reasons, are mostly, so far as the general public is con-cerned, practically beyond the pale of future reference. Something is required between "The Times" and "The Economist" on the one hand, and the Commercial and Political Articles of the Quarterlies on the other-in short, we want a periodical worthy of being called the Merchant's, the Manufacturer's, and the Practical Politician's "Own Magazine." To supply this desideratum: is the aim of the projectors of The Exchange."

66

The pages of the new periodical will not be devoted exclusively to the consideration of topics purely mercantile, but will discuss all matters - Industrial, Social, and Political having relation to the material prosperity of the people of our own and foreign countries, and all measures calculated to promote the free and mutual interchange of commodities, and to secure the existence and continuance of general international amity; in fact, will have something to say upon all topics of importance talked about and discussed on 'Change and in the Senate.

In Politics, "The Exchange" will take an independent course. All public questions will be discussed aside from any party association they may have, and the

main object held constantly in view will be the greatest possible good to the entire community.

In matters of Finance, practical rather than theoretic considerations will be our guide in judging of the merit or otherwise of any scheme or schemes of taxation which may be brought before the public; and whilst advocating the most unreserved freedom of international commerce, and deprecating every approach to the protection of domestic manufactures, the suggestion of a total abolition of all indirect taxation, raised simply for the purposes of revenue, and the adoption of an exclusively direct system, or any undue alteration in the present proportions of the two, will be discountenanced.

In addition to the consideration of Home and Foreign affairs, special care will be taken that the interests of our great Colonial Empire are efficiently looked after.

During the present year opportunities will be taken to point out some of the Commercial, Industrial, and International features of the Great Exhibition, by instituting comparisons between it and the parent Exhibition of 1851. Each monthly issue of "The Exchange" will contain: Firstly. Four to six Original Essays from the pens of the best writers of the day, on topics of present and permanent interest to the industrial community.

Secondly.-Brief Notices or Reviews of all new books bearing, directly or indirectly, upon Commercial and Political affairs.

Thirdly. A Monetary and Commercial Review of the Month, based on information furnished by the best mercantile houses-British and Foreign-whose names will be given; concluding with an analysis of the statistics contained in the monthly Board of Trade Returns.

The following Gentlemen, amongst others, have already kindly promised the aid of their influential pens as contributors to the new Periodical :
