We think these home publications ought to be patronized, especially when they evince the spirit and ability of the Arkantai Orange, Ever tanner and planter, not only in our neighbor-State across the river, but In our own State and Mississippi, should patronize this excellent monthly. We have Blackwood's EdinburghAfag azine for November, aid And It one oi the best of the series. It readier us early, considering that it is an English publication which is re printed in NswYork before It reaches its American readers. Book the eleventh of "The Parisians" begins the present number, and is followed bf a tre-tis on "Temper," .which will be read with increasing lntere-t, being spicy and original.

What dis tinguishes LiUeU's Living Age is the fact that, with its weekly issue and its three and a quar ter thousand large pages of reading matter a year, it Is enabled to present freshly and with a satisfying completeness attempted by no omer publication, the nest essays, reviews, serial and short stories, poetry, sketches ot travel and discovery, and tbe most valuable btograpnicai. Historical, political anu scien tific information, from the entire body of for eign periodical literature. It is therefore In valuable to American readers as giving promptly and without abridgement what ever is essential to them In a great and generally inaccessible but lnaispensobie cur rent literature: Indispensable because It em braces the productions of the ablest writers tn science, fiction, poetry, history, blosrapby. politics, theulogy, Bhilo&opby. criticism and art.
