Extract from Preface to the Third Edition. "It having been suggested that it would be advantageous in a little book, now on most folks' table, to add some hints of what should be done when poison has been accidentally or purposely taken, and the prompt determination and counteraction of which is of the first importance, I prevailed on my friend Dr. Gladstone to furnish me with a short notice of the more common poisons, and the mode in which they may be managed forthwith, in the absence or during the delayed attendance of a Doctor of either of the three denominations; and be has executed his task with much ability and plainness, so that the most simple person may easily follow out his direction*."

The great improvement in these Pianofortes consists in the construction of the Sounding-board, wliich, in place of being, as in the ordinary mode of construction, tightly glued to the wooden framing of the instrument, is in this patented method suspended by metallic clamps, springs, or screws, so as to admit of being wholly or partially tightened. Instead of the tone being partially absorbed and deadened by the attachment on ordinary sounding-lx>ards to the framing, a defect inseparable from the old construction, tho Patent Sounding-board, by its isolation, and by the arrangement of the springs or clamps, retains a much greater and longer vibration, and the tone is not dissipated, but flows on clearly and distinctly, giving to the ordinary Pianoforte much of the clearness and effect of the flageolet and diapason stops of the Organ. It is important to observe, that tho usual arrangement of the Piano is in every other respect followed. There is no change in the method of playing, no difference is observed in fingering, and the pedal movements are identical with the ordinary instrument.

MESSRS. TOWNS & PACKERS, 20, OXFORD STREET.—HORIZONTAL SEMI-GRAND TRANSPOSING PIANOFORTE.—To transpose Music by semitonic progression two whole tones higher or lower than the original Scale or Key in which it was composed, for the accommodation of Singers. Its novelty is attributable to the introduction of a power by which the key-l>oard is moved for the purposes of transposition, and its superiority is the fact that the tone and touch are not in the least affected by the use of this moving power. This Instrument has the repetition touch so much approved of by the Profession in the Grand Pianofortes. * [l 100
