Etterarg Notices. "r,r- Cassier's Magazine (Marine Number).—This is without doubt one of the very best productions of its kind. To anyone who takes the slightest interest in marine engineering or naval archi- tecture, to all who take a pride in our magnificent navies, both Royal and mercan- tile (and what true Britisher dees not?). Cassier's Marine Number will be a thing of beauty and a joy for ever.' It contains articles by such authorities and leviathans in ship-building, marine engineering, and naval politics as Sir William White, Sir Charles Dilke, Thornycroft, Yarrow, Denny, and numerous other not lesser but less known lights. Nor is it content with giving us productions from their masterly brains, but gives in addition numerous beauti- ful illustrations of their work and their faces. Anyone who reads in this magazine how Sir W. White describes 'Specialities of warship design,' how Mr. Yarrow builds torpedo boats, how Caird and others launch ships, or Mr. Archibald Denny's article on the design of a steamship. and Sir Chas. Dilke's masterly article on a theme he has studied perhaps as much as any one living; any one, we say, who reads these and the other popularly written articles will want to know more. It is not, we think, too much to say of this magazine that while the articles are all written in such a style that the veriest tyro in marine engineering and naval archi- tecture can readily comprehend, yet the most advanced marine engineer and the most scientific naval architect will find its pages not only in- teresting but full of information. We have only one fault to find, and that is that the binding is not strong enough for the heavy paper it is printed on. The publishers, how- ever, have justly surmised that all who buy this number will think it worthy of a place in their library, and will re-bind it to suit their own taste. We heartily congratulate them on the excellence of the publication, and wish it every success. NEW PUBLICATIONS. We have received from Frederick Warne and Co., London and New York, The Art of Conversing, or Dialogues of the Day,' a new book by the author of Manners and Rules of Good Society.' The object of the book is to demonstrate how easily conversation may be sustained, even with comparative strangers, by those who are willing to make a little effort.
