THE BRITISH PERIODICALS,
THE EAHMEH’S rA.TTT-lln.
Great reduction in tho pricoof tho latter publication.
I “ 1
L. Scott & Cos., New York, continue to publish the fol
lowing leading British Periodicals, viz:
i THE LONDON QUARTERLY (Conservative).
1 THE EDJ.NGBURGH REVIEW (Whig).
I THE NORTH BRITISH REVIEW (Free Church).
THE WESTMINSTER REVIEW (Liberal).
BLACKWOODS EDINBURGH MAGAZINE (Tory).
r IMIB great and important events—Religious, Political,
J. and Military—now agitating the nations of tho Ola
M urld, give to these Publications all interest aDd value
they never before possessed. They occupy a middle
! ground byiwecu the hastily written news items, crude
j speculations, aud 11 ylug. rumors of (he newspaper, and
; tiie ponderous Tome of tiio historian, written long after
the living interest iu thcr facts he records shall have
passed away. The progress of the War In the East occu
| pies a large space in their pages. Every movement is
; closely criticised, whether of friend or of foe, and all
short comings fearlessly pointed out. The letters from
the Crimea and from the Baltic iu Blackwood’s Magazine,
from two of ils most popular contributors, give a more
intelligible nud reliable account of the movements of the
great belligerents that can elsewhere ho found.
These Periodicals ably represent the three great politi
cal parties of Great Britain—Whig, Tory, and Radical, —
lint politics forms only ouo feature of their character.—
As Organs of tiie most profound w riters on Science, Lite
rature, Morality, and Religion, they stand, its they over
have stood, unrivalled in tho world of lotters, being con
sidered indispeusablo lothe scholar und tiie professional
man. while to tho intelligent reader of every class they
furnish a more correct and satisfactory record of tho cur
rent literature of tiie day, throughout the world, than
can lie possibly obtained from any other source.
Tiie receipt of AdnuiCf Shrets from tho British publish
ers gives additional value to these Reprints, especially
during the present exciting state of European affairs, in
asmuch as they can now be placed in the hands of sub
scribers about as soon as tiie original editions.
