BLACKWood's MAGAZINE.
WESTMINSTER Review,

There is no magazine published in the country which contains more than about half the matter of the Living Age. The cost of the work is so great, that we really need the helping hands of such subscribers as are pleased and satisfied with it, to promote its circulation among their neighbors. The success of a work does not depend so much on its merits as on the zeal with which it is urged upon the public by the publisher. The Living Age has had no advantage of this kind. We have not liked to fill the papers with statements, that “ on account of the immense demand we have been obliged to postpone the publication !” That “the mails from all parts of the country were bringing so many orders to us, that when they were about fifty miles from Boston they were locked together in a great circle, so that they could get no nearer, till the line was fortunately broken by an earthquake and volcano, which gave some of them a susicient start to get out of the way of the others; the bank notes of those which were blown up falling in a steady shower down our chimney for three weeks!” On the contrary, we promise, and are really able, to supply punctually and promptly all orders with which we may be favored.
