it the appropriate body to take action or make suggestions

central authority as the case seeins to require.
To this voluntary proposal on the part of the Secretary
of State, the committee consider the National

I avail myself of this opportunity to renew to you
the assurance of my high aid distinguished con

Right Honorable Sir H. L. butUKK, Re.'
Extract from the Circular if llu Royal Commisdtmert.
The Commissioners have felt that it would be
desirable, us far as possible, to prevent any persona
from sending; luther article* which un.iiui be
admitted,/nUier thau to reject the articles after
their arrital in London. Tney 1'eeJ also thai the
delicate and responsible task of dectdn: ? .... .1.
admission or rejection of ar:i ku destined for exhibition
by foreign contributors ought no t ty be imposed
upon uny 'uglish tribunal", but should be
referred to one jving the confidence of the exhibitors
theirx.td, and standing entirely free from
possibl' ..ipututions of nations' para -V/. Tiity
occr *ngly propose to admit to e.\.hi> ltmn such
foreign articles only us amy lie fbrwarded to them
by the Central Authority (whatever may be iu
nature) in euc& country. They w ill cuihiuuni^ate
to such Central Authority the amount of space
which cull Le ullotved to the productions ol the
uountiy for which it nets, und will uhso mate the
conditions and ltmitutibiiS which may from time
to time be decided on with respect fo tbe ndtnlss.on
of articles. All articles forwarded b)' such Ceniral
Authority will then be admitted, provided tliey
do rot require a greater aggregate amount of
*}kire th in thai assigned to the production* of the
country from xhiili tliey come; und, pnovideil,
ulso, that they do not violate the conditions and
limitations ot winch due notice elmll have been
given. It will rest with the Central Authority in
each countfy to decide upon the inertia 01 the
several articles presented for exhibition, and to
take care that those winch are sent are such as
fairly represent the industry of their fellow -country
men.
" Iler Majesty's Commissioners will consider
thut to be the Central Authority in each enseu-hich
is staled to be so by the Government of its country.
Having once been put in communication with a
Central Authority in uny country, tliey must de
ciiue, aosptuiety turn enurely, uny communication
with private and unauthorized .individuals ; unci,
should any such be addressed to then), they ci 11
only refer to a central Lody. This tit-em on is
essentially necessary, in order to prevent contusion.
" No articles of foreign manufacture, to whomsoever
they may belong, or wheresoever they muy
be, can be admitted for exhibition utilesH they
come with the sanction of the Central Authority
of the country of which they are the produce.
The Commissioners do not insist upon ouch articles
beiu^r in all cases actually forwarded by the
Central Authority, though they consider that this
would generally be the most satisfactory arrangement
; but it is indispensuble that the sanction of
such authority should in all cases be expressly
given, and that it be held responsible for the iitness
of such articles for exhibition, and for not
authorizing the exhibition of a greater quantity
than can be accommodated in the space assigned
to the productions of the country in question."
A fbll discussion was then had of the subject
thus laid, before the committee, and, on motion of
the lion, W. W. Seaton, it was?
Resolved, That the Committee ol fitc first charged
with this subject by the Institute (substituting
Mr. Kennedy for Mr. Greenough, who is absent)

steps to curry'out the views ol' the general cont,
mittee.
The following gentlemen constitute the Exr-cu
tive Committee : Col. Peter Force, Prof. Walter
R. Johnson, Prof. Joseph Henry, J. C. G. Kennedy,
Esq., Capt. Charles Wilkes.

Was commenced on Saturday, tlie 4th of May,
1830, under its original name?instead of liichiitd^

character, it beingtheonly weekly organ of Literature
in the entire South! It is
Greatly Enlarged and Impl ored,
Containing weekly Thirty-two Columns 01
matter. It is, moreover, in an
Entirely A etc Dress
"from head to foot," ^nd upon beautiful wrote
paper, so that, in mechanical excellence, it is not

"as cheap as the cheapest, and us good as the
best!" Utterly discarding ihe notion that a
Southern journal cannot compete with the JSorthem
weeklies, in cheapness and interest,
The Southern Literary Gazette
rivals the brat of them in all the characteristics of
a truly valuable fireside Journal. Its ami is the
diffusion of cultivated and refined taste ti... ugh,."'
the community?and it embrace.' m amid"
folds ever species oi' intelligence that ecu tend to
ihis result.
Original Contrihutioni,
from many of" the ablest writers in the South,
chteiiy occupy its columns, but not to ttie exclusion
of choice miscellany, selected from the I est
American and European sources.
The tone of the "Ua:"*ttc" is independent
criticism and in the discussion of eve>v legitimate
topic, but it is strictly
JWutral in Politics and Religion
Its columns are occasionally embe'lished with
Son than Portraits ami La"'''"-"lies,
ngraved expressly for the wvlf, nn<l accompanied
by biographical and -pp -graphical sketches.
Its General Information
s copious, but cmeluily condensed from the
ending; journals of nil parts of the world.
Notwithstanding the great increase in the size
tnd attractions ofthepaper, it is still published at
