The " Overland Monthly" for Febru
ary comes filled with entertaining and in
structive articles. We have had time to
glance at only a few. " St. Jo." illustrates
early life in the mining regions. "Eight
Months ia Sitka" gives a vivid description
of a voyage from San Francisco thither,
and also some of the characteristics of our
new citizens, while the article upon the
Chinese will explain to some of our house
wives the reason why their domestics of
that persuasion wish to go and see their
cousins about this time (Feb. 10.) We
are much pleased with the general appear
ance and contents of the present number.
" Onward," MayneKeid's new maga
zine, Las reached the second number, and
promises well. We like its external ap
pearance better than we did that of the
first number, and som of the articles are
quite readable. In following the authors
of some of the stories and sketches we find
ourselves in the midst of varied scenes
and surrounded by strange companions.
Though this does not fully accord with our
own taste, we are aware that there are
multitudes who take delight in just such
literature. To such this magazine will be
a treasure, and afford pleasure at many a
" Harper's Monthly' for February we
also welcome. It opens as usual with il
lustrated articles. "A Sleigh-ride Through
Eastern Russia," and "Zanzibar"' intro-
dnce the reader to some unfamiliar por
uons oi me farm s suriacc. e nave an
other dark chapter ot Spanish history in a1
sketch of Isabella II., ex-Queen of Spain.
"Preachers and Preaching" entertains us
with anecdotes of distinguished clergy
men of England and Scotland. An article
upon " Changes in Population" gives some
startling facts concerning the decrease in
the native population in some of the East
era and Middle States. In short, the whole
number is quite readable.
" Hours at Home" for February con
tains some excellent articles. We have
been much interested in reading the scries
by Prof. Porter upon "Cooks and Read
ing," of which this number contains the
second. Prof. Fisher gives us some
glimpses of Old Authors,"' with special
reference to Lord Paeon, "putting him
through the whitewashing process."' The
poetry is very good. An excellent feature
of this magazine is its review of foreign
literature, under the caption of " Rooks
and Authors Abroad." This magazine
contains a higher moral tone than any
otiicr offered in the market not professedly
religious, and consequently is deserving of
the patronage of the Christian public.
" Putnam's" for February has been
laid upon our table. We always notice
its appearance with pleasure. We have
not found time to read all it contains, but
a few articles have especially attracted
our attention. "Men's Rights." by Mrs.
Davis, is one of these. We ate glad to
know that in the.-e days there i.-i one
woman who will acknowledge that men
have any rights. We tl'ink her view of
the whole subject contains much good
sense. An article upon the Gallows in
America" a plea for its abolition, we do
not fully agree with. Nevertheless the
plea is a good one, and there are s inges
tions in it worthy the attention of philan
thropists. The truih is there are some men
in community whose presence is not de
sirable. If they could be immured in
prisons beyond reach of pardon, and with i
no hope of eseape, it would be well, but
iu fact, very few sentenced for life ever
serve their term, especially if it be a long
one. Other articles well worth, reading
are " A Sermon at Notre Dame," " Work.
Wages, Combinations, &C," together with
le talk, Ac.
We call attention to the advertisement
in another column of an official history of
trmjy.ar between the Slates, its causes,
character.l'tc. by Alex. H. Stephens, Vice
Presideut of the rebel States. The Phila
delphia T-!-graph endorses the work, as
follows : No kind of literature has been
so abundant for the past two years as that
relating to the Avar. Jt already numbers
several hundred volumes, and "is destined
doubtless to a large increase. Mr. Gree
ley's history is about the only one. as yet
written, that pretends to deal with the
philosophy of the great struggle, and. of
course, his view is from the Northern
stand-point. We most necessarily in time
h?ve a similar effort from the Southern
side of the house. Indeed Ave learn that
such a work is now in progress of prepa
ration, and approaching completion, by
Alexander II. Stephens. Vice President of
the late so-called Southern Confederacy.
The high reputation of Mr. Stephens as a
man of candor, and his philosophic cast of
mind, must render such a work from hi
pen one of great interest and value.
The " Atlantic Monthly"' for Fi
ary has a wide range of articles mostly
well-known writers, as follows : Malbone:
an Oldport Romance. The second part of
a serial story, by T. W. Higgiusort. The

Some say that it is of no use for them
to advertise, that they have been in the
place in business all their lives, and every
body knoAvs them. Such people seem to
forget to take in consideration that our
country is increasing in population nearly
40 per cent, every ten years, and no mat
ter how old the place may be, there are
constant changes taking place; some
move to other parts, and strangers till
their places. In this age of the world. un
less the name of a business firm is kept
constantly before the public, some new
firms ..lay start up, and, by liberally ad
vertising, iu a very short time take the
place of the older ones, and the latter rust
out, as it were, and bo forgotton. No
man ever lost niomv by judicious adver
tising. Newspapers, h y enhancing the
value of property in their neighborhood,
and giving the locality in which they are
published a reputation abroad, benefit all,
particularly it they are merchants or real
estate owners, thrice the amount yearly of
the sum they pay for their support. Be
sides, every spirited citizen has a laudable
pride in having a paper of Avhich he is not
ashamed, CA'on though he should pick it
up in New York or Washington. A good
looking, thriving, live newspaper helps to
sell property, gives character to the lo
cality, and in all respects is a desirable
public convenience. If, from any cause,
the matter in the local or editorial columns
should not be quite up to your standard,
do not cast it aside and pronounce it of no
account, until you are satisfied that there
has been no more labor bestowed upon it
than is paid for. If you want a good read
able sheet, it must be supported. The.
