Mr. Charles Dickens is said to be engaged upon a new work of fiction which is to appear in monthly numbers with two steel engravings by Mr. Hablot Browne. Would that, with the outward form, the new story might inherit the freshness and spirit of Pickwick!
A Catalogue of Periodicals and Newspapers published in London, for 1862, has just been issued by Messrs. Longman and Co. It will'prove a very useful guide to anyone who is at a loss for the exact name, price, and place of publication of a London newspaper or magazine.
Miss Faith full recently gave an entertainment to the compositors at the Victoria Press, and distributed prizes among the apprentices. Blanche Restieaux took the first prize for proficiency in the most difficult branches of the business, Emma Rodger the second, and Fanny Pinto, a deaf and dumb girl, the third.
The suit which we some months ago stated as in contemplation against the Rev. H. B. Wilson for his articles on the National Church in Essays and Rcv'mvs, has been commenced in the Arches Court, Westminster. The suit is promoted by the Rev. James Fendall, rector of Harlton, Cambridgeshire.
An ancient Celtic Manuscript, reports the Crieff Herald, has turned up at Drummond Castle, Perthshire, safe and sound. It is of great antiquity, probably second to none in existence. The manuscript has been placed in the hands of Mr. David Laing, of Edinburgh, for publication under his editorship, on behalf of the Spalding Club.
"A person," says the Sport, " who looks at the world in somewhat gloomy colours having recently complained in M. Auber's presence how hard it was that people must grow old, 'Hard as it is,' replied the veteran composer, 'it seems to me the only means yet discovered of enjoying long life.'"
Messrs. Longmans have in the press the last volume of Lord Macaulay's History of England for publication in their cheap 6s. edition, forming the 8th volume. It will contain a short memoir of Macaulay by Dean Milman, and will be adorned by a portrait of the author, engraved from Richmond's picture.
Lord Lindsay will shortly give to the world, in two volumes of familiar letters, an account of The Origin, Migrations, and Il^ay f the Thoringa, or Tyrrhenian Race of Assyria, Pcrsia^India, Turan, Asia Minor, Greece and Germany; but especially of Etruria, Norway, and Normandy. Sure enough_that is a title which may fairly excite some wonder and expectation.
Mr. William and Mr. Hugh Raynbird, of Basingstoke, have a quarto volume in the press, on The Agriculture of Hampshire, illustrated with maps and lithographs. The climate of the county, its soil, and the modes of culture at present pursued by its farmers, will all be carefully described. The same authors have produced a similar work on Suffolk.
A Chinese dictionary in 95 volumes has just been purchased for the Imperial Library, Paris, from Dr. Basilicwski, formerly attached to the Russian Legation at Pekin. It is said to comprise all the compound expressions in the Chinese language, accompanied by an immense nurifber of iIlustrations,drawn from works historic.philosophic and poetic.
The Rev. M. Hill, the author of Lady Noel Byron's prize essay on Juvenile Delinquency, has written a work entitled The Typical Testimony to the Messiah, which will be published next week. Mr. Hill attempts to establish the inspiration of the Bible and the fact of Divine Providence on grounds which he thinks have been hitherto entirely overlooked.
Galignani has the following:—Died on the 21st instant, suddenly, from an attack of apoplexy, Mrs. W. Galignani, the beloved wife of one of the proprietors of this journal. Remarkable alike for her kindness of heart, her enlarged understanding, and her charming amenity of manners, the deceased lady was the centre of a widely-extended circle of friends who will long and deeply lament her loss.
Dissolution or The Parthenon Club.— This once celebrated club, which has been in existence for nearly a quarter of a century, and was originally founded by some of the most celebrated savants of the day, is entirely broken up and dissolved; and, by order of the committee, the library and the whole of the effects of the club-house in Regent-street arc to be brought to the hammer.
There is in preparation a second series of Peaks, Passes, and Glaciers, describing the excursions and explorations of members of the Alpine Club, edited by Mr. E. S. Kennedy. The volume will contain accounts of several mountains never before ascended, and a narrative of an exploration of the south-eastern districts of Iceland which have not been visited by any traveller, except M. Gaiman, for fifty years.
Mr. J. Russell Smith is about to issue a reprint of the book published in 174S, containing the names of the Roman Catholics, non-jurors, and others, who refused to take the oaths to King George I., together with their titles and places of abode, the parishes and townships where their lands lay, the names of the then tenants, and the annual value of them as returned by themselves; collected by Cosin, the Secretary to the Commissioners of the Forfeited Estates.
A Library Company, with a capital of 100,000/. in 100,000 shares of 11, each, is now seriously on foot, with Mr. W. Coningham, M.P., as Chairman, and Mr. Frank Fowler as secretary, with temporary offices at Parliament Chambers, Cannon-row, Parliament-street. The object of the Library Company will be to furnish all classes of readers with booksin every department of English, Foreign, and Colonial Literature, as soon as issued from the press, from a West End office, and numerous local depots.
The little London Directory of 1677, only two copies of which are known to exist, is to be reprinted. One is preserved in the Free Library at Manchester, and the other was sold the other day from the library of the late Rev. Joseph Hunter, at Messrs. Sotheby and Wilkinson's, and purchased, we believe, for 9/,, for the British Museum. The little book is curious among other things as containing the name of Alexander Pope, the father of the poet, among the merchants residing in Broad-street.
The Clerical Journal appears weekly, instead of fortnightly as heretofore, and changes its price from id. to 3d., in order to fulfil the design of becoming a complete record of all matters relating to the clergy. A weekly letter from Oxford and from Cambridge is promised, and a series of papers on preaching and the composition of sermons, with two sketches or skeletons of sermons in each number throughout the year, which may be preached from extempore, or filled up by those who read from the pulpit.
New School Books.—A Selection of English Ballads, copiously annotated and freed from all objectionable expressions, will be published in a few weeks by the National Society. The same society has in the press the Gospel of St. Matthew, with marginal references and an exegetical commentary, specially designed to meet the wants of teachers in week-day and Sunday schools, by the Rev. W. Benham; and A Text Booh of Biblical Geology, embodying the results of the most recent investigations.
The Scientific Expedition despatched by the Swedish Government to investigate the physical geography of Spitsbergen has returned to Trovuss. Besides correcting the charts and maps of this locality, which were very erroneous, many extremely interesting researches have been made. From these it appears that animal life is abundant in these glacial regions at the great depth of 1250 fathoms, and it has also been ascertained that the great Gulf Stream, which sweeps past the Norway coast, reaches as far as the coast of Spitz bergen.
There will shortly be published a cheap edition of The Necessary Existence of God, by Mr. William Gillespie—a work which has already gone through several editions, and has received the praise of Sir William Hamilton and Lord Brougham, and some eminent divines. The work is in refutation of the most famous of the arguments of the atheists. The late James Russel, Esq., of Arnotdale, near Falkirk, left a handsome sum of money to bring out "a good readable edition of the work, at a cheap price, for the working-classes."
A London Rag Brigade is about to be organized on the model of the shoe-blacks. Homeless and neglected boys are to be provided with trucks and weights and scales, and are to go from door to door asking for rags, and giving a printed memorandum with the weight and price filled in. The boys will then take their rags to a store-room, where they will be sorted and prepared for the wholesale dealers. The Rag Brigade, like the Shoe-black Brigade, will be dressed in uniform, and will be under proper control and care, morally and pecuniarily.
Mr Sullivan, the editor of the Dublin Morning News, has been cast in damages in the action for libel brought against him by Mr. Hardy, the Sheriff of Armagh. It will be remembered that Mr. Sullivan charged Mr. Hardy with selecting Protestants, to the exclusion of Catholics, as jurymen in the trials in which Orangemen were charged with the murder of Ribbonmen. It appears from the evidence that no Catholics were on the jury, but Mr. Hardy alleged that their exclusion was an accident and not the design of his choice.
The libraries of two eminent men have lately been disposed of at two London auction-rooms. That formed by Sir James Graham—the major portion only, the rest being willed to different members of the family—is distinguished by nothing which characterized the taste and studies of the late politician. The collection of books gathered together by the late Rev. Joseph Hunter,F.S.A., is very different. It is just such a library as one would imagine this eminent antiquary to have amassed in the course of years of unremitting study.
A meeting of the shareholders of the "Law Newspaper Company, Limited" (which was formed in 1856 with a capital of £6,000, to establish The Solicitors Journal and Weekly Reporter), has been called for the purpose of winding-up the concern. The printed circular convening the meeting states that the experiment had not been successful —the whole of the capital having been expended, still leaving "a considerable sum of money to be provided for by the company." So much for joint-stock newspaper speculation.
The Cambridge Chronicle for November 30, In a report of a lecture at Newmarket on The Bock and its Story, by T. J. Bourne, Esq., makes the lecturer guilty of a very remarkable anachronism. "He then related the fact of Tunstall, the Popish bishop, having sailed in a balloon over London, and looking for Paul's-cross, and finding the Religious Tract Society's building occupying its site, and if he looked for the ancient Blackfriars monastery he would find the British and Foreign Bible Society's warehouses there erected."
It is not generally known that a little volume, entitled The Lord's Prayer Explained jor Children, -with a Preface by the Rev. J. M. Bcllnv, was written by Mr. Blanchard Jerrold. Everybody remembers the success which a little book, entitled The Garden that Paid the Rent, met with a short time since. People thought it was written by an old sun-burnt gardener, who had grown cabbages for half a century; if not by him, then certainly by Mr. Mechi, or Sir Joseph Paxton. None of these wrote a line of it. We have heard that it came from the pen that wrote the good little book on the Lord's Prayer.
The resolution to place all our historical State Papers under one roof in Fetter Lane, and under the one charge of Mr. Hardy, has been finally taken. All documents of an earlier date than the accession of George III. have been transferred from St. James's Park to the new Record Office, where the calendarers will in future work, and where historical readers will have free access to the papers. Documerits of a later date will be kept for convenience at Whitehall, where a couple of houses have been rented for them, and where Mr. Lechmere and Mr. Lemon will have charge of them.
All interested in the literature of chess should procure a catalogue—Bibliotheca Scaccariana—which has just been issued. It contains the titles of about 700 works on chess, which Messrs. Triibncr tc Co. wish to procure for a collector who is endeavouring to form a complete Chess Library and Catalogue. They will be ready to bargain for any of the 700 works named in their list, or to exchange them for duplicates of any works they may possess, or to buy any book or manuscript on Chess which is unknown to the collector who has given them this wide commission.
Mrs. Green and her Saturday Reviewer (November 30) are sorely puzzled by a note in the Calendar of Sfaie Papers for the Reign of George II. regarding "the certificate of delivery of an old fish (?) from a mast from the store at Portsmouth to Captain Twiddiman of Dover." A writer in the Morning Pott for December 2nd, and a correspondent of /Votes and Queries for December 14th, point out that fish " is a well-known nautical term for any timber made fait to the masts or yards to strengthen them; and that the word with this meaning is given in such well-known dictionaries as those of Phillips and Bailey.
Mr. Dcvey is now in Paris collecting Government documents at the Foreign Office, and a large private correspondence in connection with the late Count Cavour. In consequence of the extensive resources laid before him, his Life of Cavour, originally intended for one volume, will with difficulty be got into two. The work will form a full history of the Italian Revolution. Along with other interesting documents will appear a long letter written by Count Cavour, while in Scotland, to his friend Count Martini, detailing his opinions on the personclle of the statesmen of the Whig, Tory, and Manchester schools. The first volume will appear at the end of the month.
The Bankruptcy Court has been recently employed, under the so-called "Gentleman's Act/'in investigating the affairs of Mr. Michael George Mitchell, who is described in the schedule as "literary correspondent to the French Minister of the Interior." Mr. Mitchell was also, until very lately, the editor of the Atlas newspaper. What is a "literary correspondent" to a French Minister? We fancy that a perfectly well-known tri-Iiteral English word would have saved all this periphrasis. It reminds us of the gentleman who avoided a confession that his father had been hanged by admitting that he died on the platform at a large public meeting.
Cumberland lead pencils, twenty years ago, used to be preferred to all others, but owing to the proprietor, actuated by some whim, shutting up the only mine from whence the supply of lead w.is derived, other substitutes were found, and now a Cumberland lead pencil has an oldfashioned sound. Recently the " Wad Mine," as it is called, near Keswick, has been purchased by a company, and reopened, and, speaking of it, the Mining Journal reports:—" The lead is of the purest character; a leader more than one foot is solid lead, and the other part of the lode is producing excellent lead, but not so pure as the leader named. Should this continue, the persevering company will be amply rewarded."
The " one base exception " to the now modified tone of the American press is, of course, the New Tort Herald, edited by Mr. James Gordon Bennett. This amiable gentleman is a renegade Scotchman, having been born in Banffshire, and was brought up a Roman Catholic ; but he abjured country and religion simultaneously, and went to America. There he has been distinguished for his success, his blackguardism, and the number of times he has been thrashed. Where, by the way, is Colonel Watson Webb, the editor of the Nciv Tori Courier and Inquirer f He has thrashed Mr. Bennett three times; and, if he wishes to acquire a European popularity without much trouble, he should thrash him again.
An English translation of the work of Professor H. W. Dove, of Berlin, on the Latv of Storms considered in connection with the ordinary Motions of the Atmosphere, is preparing for publication by Mr. Robert H. Scott, M.A., of Trinity College, Dublin, with the author's sanction and co-operation. No scientific man of the present day has rendered such eminent service to the cause of Meteorology as Prof. Dove, by whom the sca'tercd materials derived from the various observatories on the surface of the globe have been arranged and classified into one general system. In this work he shows how storms are simple consequences of the ordinary laws by which meteorological changes arc governed.
We hear that the Lord Chancellor and the Master of the Rolls arc inclined to have the important documents whose recovery to the uses of history-—and especially in connection with Lord Chancellor Bacon—wc recently announced, set in order, abstracted, and calendared—at least, so far as Lord Bacon's decrees and decisions arc concerned. We trust that our great legal authorities will go a step furthur. No better service could be done to historical inquiry. The light which these papers shed on the judicial acts of Bacon they also shed on the judicial acts of his successors. For personal history these Chancery Records arc more important than the regular State Papers; and it is greatly to be desired that some means will be found tor rendering them accesssible to the public.
London Sxiety, a new monthly shilling magazine, appears to-day, and in size and illustrations contests for success with those already started. It was, we believe, the Atlantic
Monthly which first set the example of an enormous shilling's worth of literature by the most popular writers, depending for remuneration upon an immense circulation. Mucmillan'1, in November 1859,and the Cvrnhill, in January i860, took the hint, and followed the American leader; then came the Temple Bur, and then the Sr. James's ; and now we have London Society. Some feared, in the midst of this competition, that Blackwood, Frascr, and the other half-crown monthlies, would suffer or go down; but, we are told, they have been in no wise badly affected. The shilling magazines have found their own public, without intrusion on the public of their predecessors.
The establishment by Messrs. W. H. Smith and Son of the Strand, about eighteen months since, of a subscription library that should be represented at all their bookstalls throughout the country, has not only by its success, wc are told, justified the experiment as regards those who projected it, but has gained the appreciation of the reading public beyond all expectation. It is understood that Messrs. Smith and Son have now no less than 1500 three guinea subscribers $ those at a guinea showing of course a much larger number. The book clubs and reading societies have very widely recognized the convenience of having asupply of books without going to London for them. We now hear that Messrs. Smith and Son have been induced to open a London library for the use of their subscribers in London, and their carts call at all districts on regular days in every week.
New York people are proud of their " city" poets. At most " fourth of July "meetings, October trainings, civic dinners, and political gatherings, one of them recites a new stock of verses, which invariably brings down thunders of applause, and goes the round of all the newspapers on the following day. As may be supposed, they are generally of a humorous character. The latest attempt at this description of literary amusement is from the pen of Richarj G. White ; it consists of a parody of our National Anthem. The following is a specimen:—
"God aare me, prcat John Hull!
God save John Bull 1
God save John Bull 1"
Mr. Howitt is writing a history of Spiritualism, which he will entitle Gleanings in the Cornfields of Spiritualism. In it he will review the evidences for the appearance and manifestation of spirits in ancient and modern times, citing the experience "and opinions of Greeks and Romans; Zoroaster, Buddha, the Eddai and Vedas; the Fathers, the Neo-Platonists, the Roman Saints; Luther and Mclancthon; Dante, Ariosto, Tasso, and Petrarch; Pascal, Pension, and Madame Guyon; Jacob Bijhmc j Sir Thomas More, Sir Thomas Browne, Sir Philip Sydney, Lord Bacon, Shakspcare, and Milton; the Camisards; George Fox and the Quakers; the Wcsleys and Fletcher of Madeley; the Dissenters, Doddridge, Scott, Owen, Isaac Watts, and Adam Clarke; Lavater, Stilling, Zschokke, Werner, Kant, Kcrner, Schubert, and Englebrccht j relating many modern marvels at home and abroad, and giving an ample explanation and defence of his own faith in spiritualism.
Parliamentary Pjinting And Stationery. — The following return of the cost of such printing and stationery during the session i860 has just been issued:
The Effects Of Clay In Paper,—At a recent meeting of the Royal Scottish Society of Arts, the President, Mr. A. Bryson, made the following remarks on paper: u During the past year an important service has been rendered to art and commerce by the repeal of the duties on paper. Allow me to advert for a moment to the duties of the paper-makers. For some years many complaints have been made, and certainly not without reason, that our paper has been gradually deteriorating in quality, and doubts have been expressed whether or not our books and deeds will outlive the lives of their writers. The cause of this deterioration seems to be in the use of a large amount of sulphate of lime to give the paper a good colour and seeming firmness of.texture. The result is that our books, some of which arc called standard, are falling to pieces, and deeds which were intended to be permanent exponents of their writers' wills arc now so faint as scarcely to be legible. We hope that our respectable paper-makers will now adopt a mode of manufacture by which permanency may be secured.'*
Manx Dictionary.—The Mono's Herald reports that "The Manx Society is about to put to press the complete dictionary of the ancient language of the Isle of Man. The first part, Manx and English, is by Dr. Kelly, author
of the Manx Grammar^ and secretary to the translators of the Manx Bible. His MS. of the dictionary (along with another of his MS. of a triglott dictionary of Manx, Irish, and Gaelic) has long been ready for the press. It is intended to print literatim from Dr. Kelly's MS., as the highest authority in the language. The second part, English and Manx, is by Mr. Moslcy, who has acquired an extensive acquaintance w ith Welsh, as well as with the Irish, Gaelic, and Manx. The press is to be corrected by him, assisted by Manx scholars on the island. A considerable sum having been given to the publication by relatives of Dr. Kelly, the society will be able to reduce the selling price of the dictionary, so as not to exceed Ioj. 6J, The Manx Society gives to subscr.bern of £i three handsome volumes per year, and in the case of this dictionary only, have admitted others than regular subscribers. Those intending to subscribe for it may send their names to Paul Bridson, Esq., Douglas, Isle of Man."

LABRIEL'S TREATISE ON THE LOSS,
AND ONLY EFFECTUAL MODE OF RESTORING THE -JH. Explanatory of their patented system of supplying Artificial Masticator*, without springs, wires, or the use of any metal, and without extracting Teeth or Stamps, by means of the Patent Cora lite Gum-coloured India-rubber. Sharp edges are avoided, a greatly-increased amount of suction is obtained, with a degree of tightness hitherto wholly unattainable: unpleasantness of taste or smell being entirely avoided by the peculiar nature of its chemical preparation. This invention is more especially of importance to residents of warm climate*, when the Gums have become tender, or lh« Teeth loose, through absorption or otherwise.
