Attention is called to the chnracter of the illiiHtra-
tiona in The Weht Shokb for the current year. It will
be observed that more attention in being paid to our
public institutions, to miscellaneous subjects mitl to tlu)
illuntrntion of ourrout event. Thoso features admit of
a higher standard of artistic excellence and nro of more
general interest to tho public thnn thoHO which are con
fined to buildingH, Htreot scene, etc. There is no inten
tion to diHOontinue the latter, however, and our industries
will le as freely illustrated and described as formerly.
The January numWof The Weht Kiioiik develos-d
such a demand for Portland literature, that the publish
er has issuod a volume of the same size, entitled " Port
land Illustrated," containing twenty-four pages of illus
trations and description of the city and vicinity; also, a
large colored plate of the High Behool. The cover is
an elegaut ono, printed in three colors, aud is the tnost
handsome in design and perfect in execution of anything
ever seen in this city. This will lie sent to any address
npon the receipt of twenty-five cents. Tho publisher
lias in press an elegant volume entitled "Columbia
River Illustrated," in which tho grand scenery of that
noblo stream is presented in a aeries of views, all print
ed in three colors. The cover will bo a handsome de
sign in colors, and the whole will lo a beautiful souve
nir such as evi-ry jierson who has traveled on the Col-
unihia river will desire to posses. It will lie issued in
about two week, and will be sent to any addrn ujxm
trooeipt of fifty cent.
Tiikiie has just been opened in South Kensington,
London, England, one of the largest and most interesting
exhibitions ever held, known as the " Colonial and In
diim Exhibition," oompriHing extensive display of the
arts, commerce, agriculture, industries, resources, llora
and fauna of India and the numerous colonics of (I rent
Hritain, such as Canada, New Mouth Wales, Victoria,
Mouth Australia, Queensland, New Zealand, Fiji, etc.
The lieni'llts flowing to the countries thus exhibiting
their products, especially those which, like Canada, have
millions of acres of fine agricultural land, which are of
fered as a free gift to settlers, will lie immeaNiireable.
The December number of Tub Went Wiiouk, in which
the Dominion of Canada and the Canadian Paciile rail
way were fully described and superbly illustrated, so
pleased the Dominion govern nt that orders have Immmi
received from Ottawa for a large special edition to lie
sent to liondon for distribution at the exNisiliou. This
gives Portland a footing in the cxxmition, an advantage
not enjoyed by any other city in the I'nited Mtatcs, aud
miiHt result in much benefit to this city, ami the entire
Northwest as well.
Kaiii.Y in March a call was issued by I. Allen Ma
crum, Mam. 11 Irwin nnd (loo. W. Pittis-k for a meeting
