THE UBEK1A PACKET will aail from Haitimore
for Monrovia and oilier porta in Liberia,
on the first day of August next. Emigrants who
design gutug in this vessel should be in Baltimore
a day or two before, and rcmort themselves at the
Colonization Office, Poet Office building-.
Letters for Liberia or the U.S. Squadron on that
coast, will be forwarded if sent in time, and post
paid, to this office, or to the Colonization Office,
Baltimore.
We are in great need of funds to enable us to
send some emigrants in this expedition. We have
to pay this month, $2,42988, toward the expedition |
from New Orleans, in April; $1,600 00 toward the
one from the same place in January last; and
$1,600 00 toward the one from Savannah in May,
and our treasury is now empty.
We are therefore under the necessity of appealing
to our patrons for aid. Auxiliary societies, pastors
of churches, and the friends of the cause generally,
will confer a special favor by making us remittances
with the least possible delay.

X -England, 'the best magnxine iu America.' If
has nearly reached iu ddm/tmrlh volume, and in
iU list of upward qfa hundred cuiitnl/utvr* arc found
the names of every distinguished writer, male and
female, in America, with several equally prominent
of Great Britain, Turkey, Hweden, etc. A new
volume, containing- a superb engraving, a porfrail
<d the editor engraved by Chensy, from a painting
by Eluott, will commence on the tint day of July,
184#. The following notic esol the Kmckkhbockeh
are from the American aud English press, and from
American and British writers o? distinction.
'The Knickmbockbb.?Tim Ust number ol this
venerable and widely-popular periodical appears
upon entirely new and beautiful type, in all iU de
part m<nt?; and in its rich and diversified contents,
continues to vindicate its reputation as the most
agreeable and entertaining Magazine published in
the United States. When we first started the old
'New Yorker,' our friend Clash had preceded us
as Editor of the Knickerbocker about a twelvemonth:
it lias now reached an age greatly beyond
that of any American Monthly; a fact which liter <
ally 'speaks volumes' in praise of the manner in
which the work has been conducted. No number
of the K. has ever been issued under Clash's super J
vision that did not bear indubitable evidence of edit
lorial care, and anxious thought, and well-directed
labor unstamped upon its pages. We have known
no monthly, of this country or Europe, so thoroughly
edited, in the strictest sense of tne term.'?IVew
York Daily Tribune.
'Mathematicians tell us of certain curves called
asymptotes, whose peculiarity is always to approach
each other, and yet, even when infinitely extended,
never to intersect. The Knickeruockeh, which
has reached an age for a Magazine much greater
than a hundred years for a man, and only to be at-i
taiued by a more marvellous miracle, bus perpetually
approached the highest possible point of interest
and excellence; and yet it seems to have an excel.
ttor, for each number seems better than that which
went before. How it is done our friend Clark may
understand?but it is a sealed mystery to us. There
is no publication in the United States that has so attractive
or popular a feature as the Editor's table of
the Knickerbocker.'? jV?u> York Courier and Enquirer.
'We regard it as the very best work of its kind in
the Union.'?St. Album's ( Va.) Journal.
'Its contents are as invariably good as its appear
ance is punctual.'?William Cullen Bryant, ?n
the New York Evening Poet.
'Its article* are worthy of Blackwood's palmiest
days. The Editor't Table is in Mr. Clark's happiest
vein; varied and racy in a remarkable degree.!
?New York Commercial Advertiser.
'Tub Knickerbocker seems to increase in attraction
as it advances in age. It exhibits a monthly
variety of contributions unsurpassed in number or
ability.'?National Intelligencer.
'Tux Knickerbocker is one of the most valuable
magazines of the day, and outstrips all competition
in tn? higher walks of lierature.'?Albany Argue.
"The Editor's Table alone is worth the price ol
the work. It is not a periodical to be lightly glanced
over and thrown by, but it forms a library book to
save and re-read. A set of the Knickerbocker,
bound up in volumes, on the shelves of one of our
popular libraries, is more consulted (so the librarian
has often told us) than any other similar work.'?
Boston Daily Tranecrift.
President Everett, of Harford College, late
Minieterto En gland.?'I peruse the Knickerbocker
with high gratification. It seems to me to be of an
order of merit quite above the average of the periodicals
of this class, English or American.'
Hon. J. K. Paulding, lute Secretary qf the Navy.?
'The manner in which the Knickerbocker is conducted,
and the great merit of its contributors, place
it in the highest rank of periodicals.'
Poor. Long yellow, Cambridge Univereity.?'The
Knickerbocker stands high in this quarter. It is
superior to most of the English magazines, and well
deserves its large list of subscribers."
Hon. Robert M. Charlton, Georgia.?'The
Knickerbocker is a work which requires no puffing;
and 1 shall always feel that 1 am conferring a
favor on those to whom I recommend it.'
The London Examines.?'This very clever Magazine
is the pleasantest periodical in the United
States. Its articles, which are numerous and short,
various and interesting,are well worthy of imitation
bv our Mairacines on this side of the Atlantic.'
London Morning Chronicle.?'Judging- from
the number! before ua, we are inclined to consider
this the beet of all the American literary periodicals.
Its contents are highly interesting, instructive, and
amusing.'
Thi London Litkrary Gazette.?'The taste
and talent which the Knickerbocker displays are
highly creditable to American writers, and very
agreeable for English readers.'
London Metropolitan Monthly Maoaeine.?
'We have read several numbers of this talented pe<
nodical, and rejoiced in them. They would da
credit to any country or to any state of civilization
to which humanity has yet arrived.*
London Athinsuh.?'From a very clever
Monthly Magasine, 'The Knickerbocker.' of New

Sir Edward Bclwbr Lytton.?'The Knjckbr.
bocker is the best American periodical I have yet
seen. I take pleasure in enclosing you an article
which was penned expressly for your work.'
Charles Dickens, esq.?'1 read the Knicker ockeb
with very great pleasure: it is indeed a
most varioiw and entertaining periodical. It affords
m<- pleasure to contribute to the pages of a work
which numbers among its regular correspondents
such writers as Mr. Ibvinq.'
Rev. Dr. Dick Scotland.?'I have read a good
many of the articles in the few numbers of the
Knickebbockbb which yon sent me, and find them
to possess great merit. Some of its papers, it is
true, were too light for my serious turn of mind;
yet the whole appears well calculated to gratify the
tastes of the mass of readers.'

that duty, I feel no hesitancy in saying that
the hull of that boat is in good condition, and trustworthy
for the carriage of freight and passengers
between this place and Baltimore. The injury done
to the stcrnpnst having now been repaired,! consider
Iter to DC as good as many steamboats of five
