the 'Calorlt' bee, which is just now being
ushered in. Of the Knickerbocker Maga
zine, edited by Lewis Gaylord Clark, it is
unnecessary to speak. For twenty years
it has been the most genial, humorous, and

ent volume will be better than any . which
preceded it. The Home Journal, edited by
Geo. P. Morria and N. P. Willis; Is 'well
known as the best family newspaper , in
America; and the Musical World and Times,
edited by Richard Storrt Willis! with tow

tings, Wm. P. Bradbary; Geo. F. Root; and
other musical writers contributing; and
which gives, among other things, over $25
worth of music and a full course of Instruc
tion in harmony annually, is the very best
musical journal ever' published. These
three publications will post a family up in
regard (o everything worth knowing: Art,
Science, Literature; music, painting, sculp
ture;, inventions, discoveries; wit, humor,
fancy, sentiment; the newest fashions and
other attractions for ladies; choice new mu
sic for the Sabbath, the church, and the
firesides; reviews and criticisms of Musical
Works, Performers and Performances; in
short, the very pick an4 cream of Novelty,
Incident, History, Biography, Art, Litera
