THE MAGAZINES. The Century for January opens with an illustrated account of Jews in New York," by Mr Richard Wheatley, who bears good testimony to the morality, industry, and thrift of the Jews, whs swarm to America from all quarters of the globe. Another paper bearing upon the Hebrews is] that called The Jewish Question," by Josephus. A portrait of Gounod forms the frontispiece of the number, and an autobiographical paper by the great composer, describing his life in Italy and Germany, will be found further on. There are several good illustrated articles, such as The Alligator Hunters of Louisiana" and Custer's Last Battle," the latter written by one of his troop commanders. The stories are, as usual, of first-rate quality. The two short complete tales of the usual American style, which we cannot achieve, and "The Naulahka," a curious mixture of East and "W est, Orientalism and Americanism, likely to add to the literary reputation of the young authors. An article on "Witchcraft" is well worth perusal, and The Topics of the Time" and "Open Letters" have much to interest. Blackwood has a great deal of useful j read- ing in this month's number. It opens with ,'Fifty Years of Conservative Influence," a survey of the years from 1842 till 1892, and closes with The Outlook of the New Year." Dr. Skelton contributes a critical review of Lord Rosebery's Pitt, calling it A Chapter of Reminiscences and from An English Resident in Chili" we have a graphic account of The Fall of Balmaceda." "Cricket and Cricketers will have a charm for many in our land; and there are others to whom "On Fowlers and Wild-fowling" will give equal delight. Sir Herbert Maxwell's essay on Pleasure gives a true estimate of it, and is pleasantly written. "The Chronicles of Westerly" is full of delightful rencounters and cheering situations, which promise well for the wind up. In Oakham Pastures is a sad story well told. The English Illustrated holds its own well both in the matter of letterpress and of illus- tration. In its new dress it will be none the less welcome to its many readers. Mr Clark Russell's exciting story A Strange Elope- ment is concluded in this number, and the other tale" Ruraf Simplicity" is very modern. Wolf Hunting in Russia is a taking paper for those who love adventure, and An Old nu B"rgl,J°""aud Vill»S" Life in the Olden lime will suit those of quieter tastes We recommend Miss Edith Teller's practical paper on The Sorting of Paupers to the attention of our Poor Law Guardians. From the Church Sunday School Institute we acknowledge the receipt of The Church Worker, Church Sunday School Magazine, and Boys and Girls Companion, the meiits of all being too well known to require much notice.
