? I consider Prof. Cleveland's ' English Literature

just and delicate appreciation of literary e*collooce

down to our times, it will be still more interesting te

Cookery as it should be ? Ah, w?jl, that's a pretty
bold title! And a dubious one, too, exclaims another,
for if the authoress is going to tell us what it should
be, that will be nothing new, for we all know by daily
experience what it should and could be, but what it
is not. Well, she tells you what it should be, and
how to make it so; and in short, plain, practical, and
simple rulos, such as the result of a long and constant
ly active experience in providing for the daily wants
of a large household, enables her to do in tne very
best manner. Every one who has eaten at our au
thoress s board will bear ample testimony to the ex
cellent qualities of tho many good tilings she daily
sets before them, prepared under hor own *u|>erin
tendence, and the rules for making which she herein
sets forth.
The recipes of the world-renowned Mrs. Goodfel

A REFORMATORY PAPER FOR CHILDREN.
THE JUVENILE INSTRUCTOR
Edited hy Untie Liuiun, SyraiitM, JV. Y.
TO E want of a paper for children, of a reformatory
character, has long been felt. The juvenile pa
pert of our land do not meet the demands of thecom
munity. They please the eye and interest the reader,
but do not Instruct and enlighten the mind with ret
erence to the great sins of the day. Reformers! The
Juvenile Instructor is intended to meet this demand.
It is the paper for children?for Sabbath schools and
D*v schools.
The Instructor is published every other week, or
twenty-six numbers per year. A new volume com
mences January 6, 1864. A Corresponding Editor
has been secured. Her writings for children are al
ready known and admired by many. Illustrations
will be given in every number. No reasonable ex
pense will be spared to make it attractive. Five thou
sand subscribers were added last year.

ON or before the 1st of January, 1854, the Execu
tivo ComwiUou ut the Now York BtoU Tompor
ranee Society will issue tho first number of a Month
ly Temperance J ournul, undur the title of" Th* Pko
IIIWTIOBIBT."
Its Si zk.? It will be printed on a double medium
sheet, making eight quarto pages, of four columns to
a page; and, exoluding advertisements, each number
will contain an amount of reading matter equal at
least to that furnished by our larger-sixed daily jour
nals, or to that of an ordinary duodecimo volume ot
150 pagog.
ItsObjbct.?To advocate tho Cause of Teui|>er
anco generally, and cspofially the Legislative Prohibi
tion of the Traffic in Intoxicating Beverages to pre
pare the ininds of the masses for such Prohibition, by
showing it* expediency and Necessity, and to secure,
by all tho inrfuenco it may legitimately exert, the
? vigorous enforcement of Prohibitory Laws when ob
tained. . ... .,i
Itb Field.?Dealing with geperal principles, witu
arguments alike applicable to every community whore
the traffic exists and with facts illustrative ot these
argument! and principles, the (taper will be NiUiuiu/l
in it* spirit, in its scope, in its purjwso, and, we trust,
it will be National in its circulation and mlluonce.
Such is our aim and expectation. We desire to goo
the Prineiple of Prohibition established in State after
State, till it becomes the recognised polioy of the Na
tion. It is oar ambition to bear a part in this great
work, and to this end Tim Pkohibitio*bt is estab
lished, not m tho organ oi a sooiojty merely, but of a
Gkkat Rkkormatokv Movkmbnt.
Its Nbcbhsity.?The oxisting Temperance Jour
mils havo little, if anj, circulation outnide of the Tom
iterance Hanlu. Thoir price almost necessarily re
stricts them to the friends of tire cause. Thk Pao
HiBrrioNiaT is designed for circulation (instead ol
tracts) among tko indifferent and tho hostile. For
this purposo it is put at a price so low as to enable
the friends of Temperance in every school district, by
combined action and at an inconsidorable expense,
tu place a copy in each family lhat will oonsent to ro
ceive it.

The paper will be under the general direction or

assurances of literary aid iroin not a few of the ablest
and most eminent writers in the temperance ranks
throughout the Union.
The work will be stereotyped, and back numbers
can be supplied to new subscribers at any time during
the year.

THE NEW YORK MUSICAL REVIEW
AND
CHORAL ADVOCATE
IS the cheapest and best Musical Paper in the
world. T^is Journal, which has heretofore been
published monthly, commences its fifth year in Jan
uary next, and thonoeforward it will be published
every two weeks?on every other Thursday; thereby
giving more than twice as much matter, without any
Increase in price. Each number contains sixteen
quarto pages, fonr of which are new music, consist
ing of glees, hymn tuats, chants, anthems, dedication
and holyday pieces, and, in short, every variety of
musie adapted to purposes of religions worship, to
public occasions, and to the home circle; all of which
will be of a practical character, and such as can be
sung by persons of ordinary musical attainments. In
the oditorial department of the Review are engaged
(in addition to Mr Cady, the former editor) gentle
men of the highest talent and ripest musical experi
ence, among whom are (leorge P. Root, William B.
Bradbury, Thomas Hastings, and Lowell Mason ;
and its circle of eorrespondonco, home and foreign,
is complete. The Review will also be a rogutar me
diuin for the announcement of now musical public**
lions by all the leading publishing houses in the
Union. The subscription list of this paper is now
larger than that of any similar journal in the world,
and the newarrangenlenU. rendering it the cheapest
as well as (It i* hoped) the most valuable musical
paper ever published, must largely increase its al
ready unparalleled circnlation.
Trim*. ? Ono dollar per annum, or six copies for
five dollars, always in advance.
Qgr- The music alone in a volume would cost over
five dollars in tho usual form. Beside this, tnere will
be an immense amount of mosical nows, essays, erit
icism, instruction, Ac., all for only one dollar!. Ev
ery one foeling a particle of interest in the canse of
music will surely subscribe.

THE GREAT BRITISH QUARTERLIES
AND BLACKWOOD'S MAGAZINE.
Important Reduction in the Rates of Poutage.
r I E0NARD SCOTT A CO., No. 64 Gold street
JLi New York, continue to publish the following
British Periodicals, vii:
The London Quarterly Review (Conservative.
The Edinburgh Review fWhig.)
The North British Review (Free Church.)
The Westminster Review (Liberal.)
Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine (Tory.)
These Reprints have now been in successful opera
tion in this country for tirenty year*, and their circo
lation is constantly on the increase, notwithstanding
the competition they encounter from American peri
odieals of a similar class, and of numerous Eclectic
and Magasines made up of selections from foreign pe
riodieals. This fact shows clearly the high estimatioi
in whioh thoy are held by the intelligent reading
public, and affords a guarantee that they are estab
lished on a firm basis, and will be continued withou
interruption. ......
Although these works are distinguished by the po
litieal shades above indicated, yet but a small portioi
of their contents is devoted tio political subjects. Ii
is their literary character which gives them their chie
value, and in that they stand confessedly far abort
all other journals of their class. Blarkwood, still un
der the masterly guidance of Christopher N orth, main
tains its anciont celebrity, and is at this time unusu
ally attractive, from the serial works of Bulwer anc
othor literary notables, written for that Magasine, aiic
first appearing in its columns both in Great Britaii
and in the United States. Such works as " The Cai
tons and " My New Novel," both by Bulwer; " Mj
Peninsular Medal," "The Green Hand," and othtr
serials, of which numerous rival editions are issued l>j
the leading publishers in this country, have to be re
printed by those publishers from the pages of Black
wood, after it has /teen issued by Messrs. Scott \ Co.
?o that subscribers to the Reprint of that Magaxint
may always rely upon having the earliest reading ol
these fascinating tales.

Such a Paper is demanded by the Farmtng
Community.
The publishers confidently believe that the agri
culturists of this country are becoming too much
awake to. the demands of their own calling to be
longer satisfied with the slow monthly issues of a pa
per professedly devoted to their interests, or to trust
alone to the irreaponaible extracts in a "l'armer'a
column," so popular just now in papers chiefly devo
ted to business, politics, or literature; and they look
for the united support of all the intelligent farmers
of this country in their oontinued effort to furnish a
weekly paper of a high and reliable character, which
shall be progressive, and at the same time cantious
and conservative in all ita teachings.
Essentially an Agricultural Paper.
Th? Agriculturist will not depart from ita legiti
mate sphere to catch popular favor bv lumbering ap
ita pagea, with the silly, fictitious literature, and
light, miaoellaneoua matter of the day; it has a high
er aim; and a small part only of its spaeo will be
devotod to mattera not immediately pertaining to tho
great business of Agriculture. The household aa
well as the out-door work of the farm will receive a
due share of attention. The humbuga and noatfuma
afloat in the community will bo tried by reliable sci
entific rales, jtnd their wortbleaanvss exposed. It ia
the aim of the publishers to keep thia paper under
the guidance of thoae who will make it a standard
work, which shall communicate to its readers only
that which is safe and reliable.
An Independent JourHal.
The American Agrimitvrisl stands upon ita own
merits; and the truthfulness, seal, and ability,
which it brings to t^e support of the interests of the
farmer. It is untrammeled by any collateral buai
neaa connections whatever; nor is it the organ of any
clique, or the puffing machine of any man or thing.
Thoroughly independent in all pointa, its ample pa
ges are studiously given alone to the support and im
provement of the great agricultural olaM.
