JanuMry 1, will be published, price Sixpence, free by put, each volume complete in itself, ENLARGED TO TWENTY-FOUR FOLIO rAGES, THE FIRST NUMBER FOR 1848 OF THE GARDENERS' CHRONICLE AND AGRICULTURAL GAZETTE: A WEEKLY RECORD OF RURAL ECONOMY AND GENERAL NEWS. The Horticultural Part edited by Professor Lindley. The Farming Part (under (he editorship of a practical Farmer) treats of— Tlie Practice of Agriculture Resultsot well-conducted Experimental Foresting Agricultural Science Farming. Road-making Animal and Vegetable Physiology Growth and Rotation of Crops Farm-Buildings Agricultural Science Farming. Road-making Animal and Vegetable Physiology t Growth and Rotaticn of Crops Farm-Buildings Improvements in Implements, described Stock Labourers by Woodcuts whenever requisite Drainage Agricultural Publications, Better mcdes of Husbandry Irrigation 7 In short, whatever aiTects the beneficial employment of capital in land. Reports are regularly given of the English, Scotch, and Irish Agricultural Societies and f armers Clubs-London Market Prices of Corn. Ha, Cattle, Seeds, Hops Potatoes, Wo«l. &c„ and he Weekly Averages. AS regards the Gardening Part (under the editorship of Dr. Lindley) the principle is to make it a weekly record of every- thing that bears upon Horticulture, Floriculture,Arboriculture, or Garden Botany, and such natural History as has a relation to Gardening, with Notices ard Criticisms of all Works on such subjec ts. Connected with this part are WEEKLY CALENDARS OF GARDENING OPERATIONS, Given in detail, and adapted to the objects of persons in ever\ station of life JO that the Cottager, with a few rods of ground before his door, the Amateur, who has only a greenhouse, and the manager ot extensive gardens, are alike informed of the routine of operations which ti e various seasons rencer necessary. It moreover contains report* ot Horticultural Exhibitions and Pro- ceedings—Notices of Novelties and improvements in fect» everything that can tend lo advance (he profession, benefit the condition of the Workman, or conduce to the pleasure of his Employer; Woodcuts are given wheoever the matter treated of requires that mode of illustration. e Replies to Questions connected with the object of the paper are also furnished weekly. Lastly, that description of Domestic and Political News is introduced which is usually found in a Weekly Newspaper. It is unnecessary to dwell on this head further than to say, that the Proprietors do not range themselves under the banners of any party; their earnest endeavours are to make The Gardeners' Chronicle and Agricultural Gazette a full and complete Record of Facts only—a Newspaper in the true sense of the word—leaving the reader to form his own opinions their object being the eluci- dation of the laws of Nature, not of Wan. The reader is thus furnished, in addition to the peculiar features of the Journal with such information concerning the events of the day, as supersedes the necessity of his providing himself with any other weekly paper. A PROSPECTUS, with list of Contributors, may be had on application, or by letter, at the Office, 5, Upper Wellington- street, Covent Garden, London. Parties intending to commence with the New Volume had better give their orders at once to any newsvender. LONDON TO CARDIFF, NEWPORT, &c.

THIS Institution is empowered by a SpeciilAct of Parliament, and is so constituted as to afford the benefits of Life Assu- rance in tbeir fullest extent to Policy Holders, and to present rance in their fullest extent to Policy Holders, and to present greater facilities and accommodation than are usually offered by any other companies. Among others, the following important advantages may be enumer.ted:- Increasing Rates of Premium on a new and remarkable plan for securing loans or debts; a less payment being required on a Policy, fur the whole term of life, than in any other office. CHFDIT TABI.K.—By this table The premiums may remain un- paid for live years, upon satisfactory security being given for the liquidation ol the same, at the expiration of that period.

Policies may be thus effected at lower rates than are generally required for the teim of seven years only; whilst the holders have the same security for the payment of their claims, whenever death may happen, as if they paid double the amount of pre- miums, which would be charged for assurance effected in the same way. Policies revised without the exaction of a ..1IC, at any time within twelve months. A Board of Directors in attendance daily at two o'clock. Age of the Assured in every case admitted in the Policy.
