(!)Itr iilmmt Sablf. Music—Come Forth, oh Mistress miue. Veneziana.— Written aud composed by Rophino Lacy. London: Kreutzer, Saiupsou aud Co Rophino Lacy's was a popular name in the Musical World of London but his success was not equal to his merits, though,at one period hi- produced, and adapted, operas for the English stage, which multitudes went to hear and see. Of late years, his was a struggle for exist- ence and he died a few weeks back, as much the victim of disappointment, as the child of age. The song whose title we have quoted was his last com- position, and he corrected the proof sheets on what proved to be his death-bed; aud this will impart an interest to the piece, irrespective of its merits, which, both in the air and accompaniments, are great. The words, also are above the usual standard of modern lyrics. I t is for a soprano voice; and is adapted either for the concert or drawing-room. We shaU be glad if our notice promotes its sale, for the sake of the widow and the two daughters, who will benefit from that circumstance aud who are left mainly dependent upon the exertions of the eldest daughter to maintain their position in society. TdE PE II'L%'g :>LI. i.wixa, for Nov--tiil)er.-Lon(lon So. ciety for Promoting Christian Avuowledge. This periodical did not reach us till ten days after its publication, that is the reason of the notice not appear- ing last week, with those of other periodicals. It is an excellent number. \ir Sutherland Edwards displays great skill, as a writer of lictiou, in his iiovel of The Governor's Daughterthe interest progresses with the tale. Besides this tale, the papers on Schiller," the -1 Home Memories of the Poets," "Bertrand du Gue3ilia," and The American Poets," are all belonging to the first-class of magazine literature. "My first acquaintance with Dickens," will also be read with interest, now that the popular author of Pickwick has sailed for America and the article on Abyssinia, with the map of that country, is especially opportune. The illustrations are numerous; and "The People's Maga- zine" is certainly not surpassed by any of its contem- poraries of the same class and price very few can be at all compared with it.
