IVfr", Leach's practical Family Dressmaker is an exceedingly cheap two pennyworth. Mra Weldon's Ladies Journal of dress, fashion, and needlework, is an authority on all matters per- taining to ladies attire.

Harper's Monthly Magazine.—The number for June is one of the best yet issued, both in point of matter and style of get up. The woodcuts are really admirable, while the letterpress leaves nothing to be desired. Amonyr the most interesting papers is A Fecret of the sea," which is highly readable and enter- taining. The thread of the tale is maintained through- out. Another paper, the subject of which is A night with the German army," shows the stern dis- cipline of our Continental neighbours with vivid effect, and from all American point of view is well worthy of perusal. A wild goosa chase" gives us some eautiful little bits of scenery and phases of domestic life, which are very interesting. The several stories are all well written, and Harper's is a volume of excellent literature. The English Illustrated Magxzine for June con- tains an excellent frontispiece picture of the Young Cowherd," being a New Forest scene, and among the literature worthy of special notice is Schwartz A history," The London Ragamuffin," "In the Lion's den," The Sirens Three," and A Family Affair." This magazine is one of the best conducted in Eng- land, and its literary nierits are justifiably preten- tious. Harper's Young People continues to cater for the juvenile class most creditably, its tales and other light reading being of a most healthy character. Once it gets into the hands of the young it is sure to make many friends.
