AS soon as the FAMILY FRIEND appeared, it was recognised a as something new in literature. Its superiority to the great mass of cheap publications became at once apparent; and hence, before the Fourth Number was issued, the circulation rose to TNIUTV-FIVK THOUSAND, and is still rapidly increasing. Upwards of one hundrcd newspapers reviewed the work in most favourable terms, all concurring in the opinion, that it is a publication which shouldfind its way to every Family in the kingdom." Its matter comprises Essays, Tales, Poems, Sketches, Papers on Science, &c. Light and cheerful in its literature, it is nevertheless peculiarly instructive, and of a high moral tone. But Its chief dis- tinguishing features are these—that it contains subjects of interest for every member of the family, from the grandfather to the child and that it blends with entertaining matter much valuable prac- tical instruction upon Household and General Domestic Affairs. Every number contains a tale, an article upon practical science, an historical or scientific paper, addressed to young people, by Aunt Mary," or by Grandfather Whitehead," a mass of useful receipts and prescription, (this department being edited by a ME.UBKR oi' THE MEDICAL PROFESSION) Original Illustrated Designs in Fancy Needlework (by the celebrated MRS. WARREN) Instruction and Advice for the Gardener, Housewife, Naturalist, & Various humorous matters, such as Anagrams, Arithmetical and other Problems, Enigmas. Conundrums, llebuses, Practical Puzzles, Chef-s Problems, &c. &c.,for family pastime. Already the Work has supplied valuable matter upon pleasing pursuits—such as the Culture of Flowers, the Preservation of Flowers in Winter, the Preservation of Birds, Eggs, Insects, Shells, Mosses, Ferns, &c., and an interesting series of papers upon the I'reservation of "Sea Weeds" is now going on. Thus it con- tributes to make Winter Fire-side Evenings, and Summer Wan- derings, alike agreeable and instructive. The Work commenced January 1, 1349, and a number has ap- peared every succeeding month up to the present. New Subscribers are strongly advised to order the whole of the back numbers at once (Pi ice 2d. each), that there may be no difficulty in procuring them hereafter.

GOOD HEWS FOR HUSBANDS. \J.T ASBTNG-DA Y is the day most dreaded in the domestic f calendar. 13 y some is its advent regarded with ghastly honor; and where's the man who would hot gladly rid himself of such a necessary ? Intolerable as are reputed to be those high and mighty thinurs called curtain, lectures,' not one poor wif-lit, we feel convinced, but would rather sustain a score of them than bear the infinitesimal woes of a washing-day. A domestic Lethe has therefore long been a desideratum, but we rejoice to say is now attainable. To Mr. HAitPER TWELVETREES is due the honour and the emolument of this discovery, the greatest won- der of this wondrous [lgc. Woman-kind will laud hiii for it, and men bestow on him their benisons. But what is it P' inquires the reader. We'll fell you-not wherein the discovery consists, but- what Mr. Twelvetrees has discovered. He has effected a domestic revolution Quedl Scrub is deposed, and a Republic of Soap-suds holds sway. Incredible as it may appear, a six weeks' wash may be accomplished before breakfast, for less than sixpence, without the aid of a washerwoman i Pshaw it's all moonshine—Mr. Harper is a visionary—an enthusiast.' He is neither although, we acknowledge, we aid at oiie-pei-ioe, form a similar estimate of his character. Don't condemn the man unheard. In our establish- ment his 'directions' have been followed, and his 'process' tried. And a most simple process it is, and eminently economical and ex- peditious. No rubbing is required at 'the tub,' nor a tithe of the usual time. The linen is rendered of virgin whiteness, and not in the least deteriorated. The process has also been tested in the family of a gentleman whom we rank among our acquaintance, and he pronounces it a positive blessing to that portion of frail humanity which, like himself, has long been occupied in explorations for a benedictine El Dorado, where washing-days are unknown. As many of our readers will naturally desire to obtain the Directions,' we here print the addres of the author,—1 Mr. Harper Twelvetrces, 14, New Millman-street, Foundling Hospital, London,' of whom they may be procured. The cost is a mere triflc-oil,titi(I-tliirtv postage stainps-tiie intrinsic value being inestimable. We shall be happy to furnish any further information that may be required on the subject of this washing wonder—that is, any particulars not involving a knowledge of details for who would be so unjust, so callous, as to deprive the inventor of any portion of the emolument he is entitled to derive from his truly ingenious discovery ?"— Guernsey Comet, March 5, 1849.
