J ii adJition, the di.-iinguishcd services of a host of anonymous writers of no ordinary abilites have given worth nnd characier to the pages of the Magazines. The series of well known nnutical papers entitled ' Ciuising in the Last War." have had a run, unequaled by any series publishcd in any Magazine, for years. Thc author proniises to open the fust of a new series of " Tales of the Sea," nnd from his known abilities as a depicter of sea scènes and life. nmch niay be relied upon trom him in maintaining the popularity oi the Magazine.

Anoccasional Chit-Chat with 'Jeremy Short' and ' Oliver Ófdfellpw' is also promiscel with a variety ofchoice anieles in prose and verse, from various writers of cdebrity, as contributors to thc prominent Magazines of the country. The Editors of both Magazines continue their services under the ncw arrangement. iVith sueh an array of talent, a Magazine ofunrivalled attractions. may safely be piomised the coming volume.
