THE ATLAS FOR INDIA.—The object of this publi-

cation, which is issued on the 7th and 24th of every month, is to give, in a condensed form, the news of the preceding fortnight, up to the hour of the mail's departure, collected and arranged with especial reference to the requirements of the Indian public. Whilst matter not affecting the interests of, or calculated in any manner to entertain the Indian reader, is scrupulously excluded, the utmost pains are taken to obtain from every possible source often from original and exclusive sources information of peculiar interest to residents in the Indian presidencies, Ceylon, China, and the Straits. The better to secure the accomplishment of this desirable end, and to render the publication in every respect what it professes to be, an ATLAS FOR INDIA, the management has been placed in the hands of a gentleman recently editor of one of the leading daily journals of Calcutta.

The ATLAS FOR INDIA is not a mere reproduction of the principal contents of the weekly paper, but is in a great measure written expressly for Indian circulation. It contains a compendious narrative of the principal domestic and foreign events of the fortnight; military and commercial intel. ligence; literary and social chit-chat; items of personal news, &c. &c. Every number embraces a general summary of the news of the past fortnight, written expressly for this journal, regard being had to the relative importance and interest of the different events touched upon, in the eyes of the AngloIndian reader. It is the endeavour of the conductor of the ATLAS FOR INDIA, not only to give a condensed historical narrative of political events, but to catch the tone and temper of the times, and embody in the pages of this journal all that lighter fabric of social and literary intelligence, past, present, and prospective, which, in this age of progress, is so abundant in every great European metropolis. Atlas Office, 6, Southampton-street, Strand. To be bad of all News-agents.

The next ATLAS FOR INDIA will be published this afternoon, April 24th.

The principle adopted by the Universal Life Assurance Society, of an anmual valuation of assets and liabilities, and a division of three-fourths of the profits among the assured, is admitted to offer great advantages, especially to Those who may wish to appropriate their proportion of profit to the reduction of prerniums

The following Table will shew the result of the last division of profits, as declared on the 13th May, 1846, to all persons who had on that day paid six annual premiums:

ADIES TRAVELLING, or otherwise exposed to the

scorching rays of the sun, and heated particles of dust, will find ROWLAND'S KALYDOR a most refreshing preparation for the complexion, dispelling the cloud of languor and relaxation, allaying all heat and irritability, and immediately affording the pleasing sensat ion attending restored elasticity of the skin. The numerous varieties of cutaneous eruptions, together with sun-burn, freckles, tan, and discolorations, are pleasingly eradicated by the Kalydor, and the skin rendered delicately soft and clear. Its purifying and refreshing properties have obtained its exclusive selection by her Majesty the Queen, the Court and the Royal Family of Great Britain, and the several Courts of Europe ; together with the eilte of the aristocracy and haute volée, from the suitry climes of India and the drawing-rooms of Calcutta and Madras to the frozen realms of the Czar and the saloons of St. Petersburg and Moscow. Price 4s. 6d. and 8s. 6d. per bottle.

Beware of spurious “ KALYDORS," containing mineral astrigents utterly ruinous to the complexion, and which, by their repellent action, endanger health,

ROWLAND'S MACASSAR OIL.-The singular virtues of this successful invention for restoring, improving, and beautifying the Humau Hair, are too well known and appreciated to need comment. The very fact of its having stood the test of nearly half a century of probation, and obtained the especial patronage of her Majesty the Queen, H.R.H. Prince Albert, the whole of the Royal Family, and of every Court in the civilized world, and the high esteem in which it is universally beld, together with numerous testimonials constantly received of its efficacy, afford the best and surest proof of its merits.-Price 35. 6d. ; 78.; family bottles (equal to four small), 10s. 6d., and double that size, 21s. per bottle.

ROWLANDS' ODONTO, or Pearl DENTIFRICE, a white Powder for the Teeth, compounded of the choicest and most recherché ingre. dients of the Oriental Herbal, of inestimable virtue for preserving and beautifying the Teeth and strengthening the Gums. Its truly efficient and fragrant aromatic properties have obtained its selection by the Court and Royal Family of Great Britain, and the sovereigns and nobility throughout Europe. -Price 25. 9d. per box.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION.--Unprincipled individuals, for the sake of gaining a trifle more profit, vend the most spurious compounds under the names of " Macassar Oil," "Kalydor," and "Odonto;" some under the implied sanction of Royalty and the Government Departments, with similar attempts at deception, while they copy the labels, advertisements, and testimonials (substituting fictitious names and addresses for the real) of the original preparations. It is therefore highly necessary to see that the word “Rów. LAND'S” is on the wrapper of each article.--All others are FRAUDULENT INITATIONS !!

The genuine articles are sold by the Proprietors, and by every respectable Perfumer and Chemist throughout the kingdom.

TION of the CHEST are entirely prevented, and gently and effectually removed in Youth, and Ladies and Gentlemen, by the occasional use of the IMPROVED ELASTIC CHEST EXPANDER, which is light, simple, easily applied, either above or beneath the dress, and worn without any uncomfortable constraint or impediment to exercise. To young persons especially it is highly beneficial, immediately producing an evident improvement in the figure, and tending greatly to prevent the incursion of pulmonary diseases; whilst to the invalid, and those much engaged in sedentary pusuits, such as reading or studying, working, drawing, or music, it is found to be invaluable, as it expands the chest and affords a great support to the back. It is made in Silk; and can be forwarded, per post, by Mr. ALFRED BINYON, Sole Manufacturer and Proprietor, No. 40, Tavistock Street, Covent Garden, London; or full particulars, with prices and mode of measurement, on receipt of a postage stamp.

During the iime she was attended by several of the most eminent medical men in Cheltenham, but without receiving any benefit whatever, and as a last resource she tried Holloway's Pills and Ointment, which, in two months, perfectly cured the dreadful complaint, and restored her to health. This remarkable cure can be authenticated in every particular at the Bookseller's, No. 10, Arcade, High Street, Cheltenham.

THE “HOME NEWS,” with which is now incorpo-

rated the “ LONDON MAIL," is regularly issued on the 7th and 24th of each Month, in time for the despatch via Marseilles, all intelligence of interest for the reader in India being brought down to the latest hour.

Messrs. GRINDLAY and Co. have the pleasure to announce that arrangements have been made for incorporating with the “HOME NEWS,” the distinguishing features of the “ LONDON MAIL.” They refer to the MiliTARY, COMMERCIAL, and INDIAN News, the greater portion of which has been selected and arranged by the late Editor of the “ LONDON MAIL,whose contributions to those departments in his own Journal attained for i* the wide circulation, high position, and public confidence, by which it was distinguished as a Journal for India.

The Proprietors of the “HOME NEWS" beg to assure the subscribers to the “ LONDON MAIL," that no effort will be wanting on their part to pre. vent regret for the demise of that Journal, and the transfusion of its spirit into these columns. The only cbange which this incorporation has occasioned, is an addition of eight pages to the twenty-four of which the “ HOME NEWS" originally consisted, making a whole of thirty-two pages, without any alteration of its present portable and convenient form ; and they venture with some confidence to express a hope that the talent they have secured for its conduct, the peculiar resources at their own command, and their practical knowledge of the information most acceptable to the Indian public-especially as it regards the Civil and Military services-will give the “ HOME NEWS,” embracing as it now does the leading merits of the “LONDON MAIL,” at once a place in the first rank among the Journals for India.

Parties desiring to have the “HOME NEWS” forwarded regularly without further trouble to their friends in India, should apply to Messrs. GRINDLAY and Co. or through any respectable Newsman in Town or Country at the Offices of the “HOME NEWS," 16, Cornbill, and Green-arbour Court, Old Bailey. The price of the “ HOME NEWS" is 9d. for each copy, or 185. per

annum, payable in advrince,
