NEW MONTHLY MAGAZINE.

Messrs. Hurd AND HOUGHTON will publish, on the 15th day of December, the first number of a Monthly Magazine for general and popular circulation, under the title

OLD AND NEW.

OLD AND NEW differs from magazines now in circulation, in attempting a wider range of topics. It is intended for the home circle, and its effort is to interest all members of that circle.

OLD AND NEW, therefore, in publishing Stories, Literary Essays, ånd Criticisms, by the best authors, does not confine itself to them. Its aim is to improve the social and religious life of the American people, by freely bringing forward subjects of the highest social and religious importance.

Its conductors believe that the time has passed when politics were to be discussed only by statesmen, and religion only by clergymen. The fit study and consideration of such themes is now the privilege of all.

OLD AND NEW will thus discuss every subject of present importance. It will attempt such discussion in such ways as may be interesting to the great body of readers, with the best illustration which can be commanded.

OLD AND NEW will be edited by Rev. EDWARD E. HALE. He has the help of a large number of the most distinguished writers in this country, and of valuable correspondents in the Old World. The several departments which they propose in the outset for their journal, besides those spoken of, are

STORIES AND OTHER PAPERS, by the most successful writers.

ARTICLES ON PHYSICAL SCIENCE AND SKETCHES OF TRAVELS, by men and women who know what is known.

CRITICISM, kind and fearless, on contemporary literature, such as shall guide the choice of book buyers; and a RECORD OF PROGRESS. In this department, without much attention to the merely transient squalls or teapot tempests, OLD AND NEw will attempt to show what advance the world is really making in its Colleges and Universities, in its Scientific and Religious Associations, in its Social Reform, and by offices of Public Administration.

The discussion of all these topics will be conducted under the inspiration of the Christian Religion, in the interpretation of a broad and liberal Theology. For Old AND NEw will recognize the truth, which everywhere compels conviction now, that while the religion taught by Jesus Christ is as old as the throne of God, Theology, which is the human expression of man's knowledge of God, requires new statements with every day.

The first number of OLD AND NEW will contain articles by

BALLADS OF NEW ENGLAND.

BY JOHN GREENLEAF WHITTIER.

One vol. 8vo. With 60 Illustrations. Bevelled and gilt, and richly bound in cloth, $5 00. Uniform with the Illustrated

“Snow-Bound." Turkey Morocco, *9 00. We never weary of new editions of Whittier's poems; and the delicious volume of his "Ballads of New Englaod," which his publishers, Messrs. Fields, Osgood & Co., have sent out in anticipation of the Christmas seasun, is worthy of all praise. The ballads are household words-stanzas and couplets from them all are in the memory of the majority of readers-yet they have alınost a new music and a new meaning when read again by the help of the beautiful illustrations which adorn the vol. une. The landscapes have been drawn chiefly by Mr. Harry Fenn, and Mr. Whittier says that he recognizes in such as refer to New England the scenery familiar to him from boyhood. But the figure pieces vie in power with the landscapes, as the

of Eytinge, Darley, Hennessy, Fredericks, Winslow Homer, Granville Perkins, and others give aboodant assurance. Altogether it would be safe to predict that the holidays will not bring us a more tasteful presentation book than this one.- Nero York Evening Post.
