REVIEWS. .e- CASSELL'S PUBLICATIONS for April are of the greatest interest, and are suitable for all classes of readers. We have received copies of several of their works, and find them to contain information that cannot fail to interest, instruct, and amuse all who care to peruse them. Much profitable reading is to be found within the pages of Work," •' Cassell's Saturday Journal." Cassell's Family Magazine," The Quiver." "The Magazine of Art," Chums," &c. We would call special attention to the two former publications, and the article entitled Tommy Atkins and Trade" will be read with interest, not only by our soldiering friends but by all who take a delight in learning how money is made by odd and unthought-of means. A Ratepayers' Dodge of Making Money is also very entertaining, while the lu cid manner in which the writer deals with the means of providing fresh air for the Houses of Parliament commends itself to all, who have ever thought of the dust that is kicked up upon the floor of your legislative chamber. Work is a journal that has endeared itself to the hearts of tho3e who delight in seeking knowledge. Its pages are full of hints upon the making of almost everything. This month's number deals with, among other things, the art of colouring in prospective drawings, while the following extract cannot fail to be of interest to those who are anxious to make their homes neat and pleasant to the eye RULE FOR HANGING PICTURES.—A good rule for hanging pictures is to fix them with the centre of the picture at a level with the eye— i.e., about 5ft. 3in. from the floor. Supposing the picture to be hung at this height, the superiority of the rail is noticeable over the old method of hanging them to nails at about ceiling level; there is not such a display of cord, and the pictures hang more securely. liTHE NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL UNION CARLE. —No. 1 of the above paper, which is edited by the Earl of Winchilsea, is to hand, and in its pages much of interest to farmers and our agriculturist readers is to be found. It is a weekly publication, price Id., and is devoted entirely to the interests of agriculture. In addition to reports, &c. of the trade, there are many well written articles upon topics that cannot fail to be of interest to our agriculturing readers. _u_
