nice of early and vigorous measures to arrest it in its «ry beginning—in the premonitory stage.

Treatment.—The main reliance is on emetics, and the Worm bath. The plan that wo havo been accustomed to pursue, with the most satisfactory results, in this: Wo have the child immersed all over as soon as possible in a warm bath, regulating the temperature of the water according to the heat of the skin. If the skin is very hot, we have the water barely warm; if it is cool, or of a moderate temperature, the water is made warm in proportion. While the bath is preparing, we give from ten to thirty drops of the compound syrup of squills, or Coxe's hive syrup, which may be had at any drug-store, aad should be kept by eveiy faInily. This is repeated every five, ten, or fifteen minutes, increasing the dose each time, until vomiting occurs, or until all the distressing symptoms are relieved- After vomiting or relief, the medicine is continued at intervals of one or two hours, regulating the dose so as to keep the system moderately under its influence. And if, at any time, the difficulty of breathing returns, thedosesare repeated at short intervals, as in the first instance.

The child should remain in the bath until the system Is thoroughly relaxed, as will be manifested by easier breathing, a weak expres-ion about thy eyes, paleness of the face, and profuse sweating. It is worse than useless, it is outrageous to dab a child in water for a few mlantes in these cases, and then take him out and expose him naked to the air for a longer time than ho remained in the water. The patient should stay in the bath for an hour or more, should so long a time be required to produce the desired eifect. When the bath is thus prolonged, fresh supplies of warm water should be added from lime to time, so as to keep up the temperature. As toon as the child is taken out of the bath, he should bo Wiped quickly with a dry towel, and then wrapped up in a blanket or quilt, with no clothing on except a shirt or gown. By pursuing this course, the trouble and oxpwure of dressing and undressing will beavoided, while the patient will Iie ready for another bath, which he ahould have whenever tint urgent symptoms return.

The warm bath should be repeated again and again, whenever thoIBpBptoms become distressing. It cannot well be used too frequently, if regulated according to the effects, aud with due attention to avoidance of exposure, etc.

From T. B. Petrrron k Brothers. Philadelphia:— THE LAMPLIGHTER'S STORY; HUNTED DOWN; THE DETECTIVE POLICE: and ath'r NnuvelW*s. By Charter Dickens, author of " Great Expectations," "Pickwick Papers," " Dombey S t Son,"etc. The first of these, appeared a year or two since among a collection of stories called "Pic Nic Papers." The second, "Hunted bown," was published originally in the Nete York Lflger, and we have been told that Mr. Bonner paid five VOl. lxiv.—17

thousand dollars for the same. Whether it seems worth that amount we will not pretend to say. At all events it is one of the best of Dlckens's short stories. "The Hannted House" is a reprint from one of his Christmas stories. The remainder aro records of interviews with the detoctive police, miscellaneous tales, sketches, and essays, all of them most entertaining and instructive. He affords his readers an insight into the workings of the Detective Pulice system, and gives an account of his visits to some of the worst and most wretched quarters of London. Price 50 cents.

FOR BETTER, FOR WORSE A Love, Story. From "Temple Bar." Aquiet, but well written novel, rather deficient in incident, but with a plot which, though far from being intricate, is well devised and well carried out. The characters of the three sisters, Margaret, Grace, and Ethelind, are all pleasing ones, though differing totally in all respects. That of Margaret is by far the best, not only of the book in which it appears, but of the majority of heroines which we find in romances. Possessing sterling common sense, and all the attributes that belong to a truly noble woman, she is placed in bold relief in the foreground, the main figure of the group. Price 25 cents.

THANKSGIVING. A Sermon preached in the Arch Street Pretbyterian Church, Philadelphia, on Thursday, November 2S, 1861. By Ch arles Wads worth. Published by request. Price 15 cents a copy: $1 50 a dozen; or $10 a hundred.

From J. B. Lippixcott k Co., Philadelphia:— JENKINS'S VEST POCKET LEXICON. An Engfiish Dictionary o/all except Familiar Word*; inclnding the principal Scientific and Technical Terms, and Foreign Moneys, Weights, and Measures. By Jabez Jenkins. We have been made the recipient of this work, so diminntive In sizo that it can really be what Its title indicates, a "vest-pocket" companion. It "omits what everybody knows, and contains what everybody wants to know, and cannot readily find." The plan pursued by its author in compiling it Is most admirable, resulting In compressing a vast amount of lexical information in a small com pass. The definitions of each word are brief, yet convey their complete meaning; and the most common French and Latin words and phrases are Introduced In their alphabetical placo among the rest. It is a book that will please every one, except such as are too conceited to acknowledge their dependence on a dictionary for a complete comprehension of their mother tongue; and even they might easily consult It in a quiet corner without being observed.

From Rudd & Cabletox, Now York, through PeterSon k. Brothers, Philadelphia:—

NATIONAL HYMNS: lhao they are written, and How th*y art not written. A Lyric and National Stndy for the Times. By Richard Grant White. Mr. White has undertaken the editorial duty of presenting to the public the decision of the Committee on a National hymn, giving the reasons why no single one of the numerous competing poems was selected as worthy of the prize j offered. This he has done in eight essays or chapters, I in which he has fully proved that both himself and the committee had perfectly clear ideas of what \%i%ot Wanted in a national anthem. What is necessary it seems that none of the twelve hundred competitors fully comprehended, and we doubt whether tho committee were much better informed. Tho truth is that a natioual

Bong can never be written in that manner, and if the committee had realized this fact, they might have saved themselves much unnecessary labor. When this required national air shall ho written, it will, doubtless, be the offspring of chance both in its production and adoption. It will be written, because Bouio poet, porhaps a humble one, shall feel the glow of true patriotism—not a burning desire to finger five hundred dollars; and it will be adopted because the nation will find a chord in it responsive to tho loyal feelings animating its own breast. Nevertheless, this book is deserving of careful study on account of the suggestions it offers upon the subject of which it treats. It contains some of the best songs offered for cousideration, any one of which is meritorious enough, if that were all required, to obtain the prize. And on the other hand the reader's risiblcs will bo excited by specimens of some of the poorest, published of course anonymously, to save the feelings of the aspiring authors. Price $1 00.

From H. Dextkk k Co., and Rosa k Tofbrt, New York, through Peterson & Brothers, Philadelphia:—

TALES OF THE TIME. A collection of stories from the pens of John T. Irving, Henry P. Lclaud, Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Miss C. M. Sedgwick, and others, which appeared originally in the Knickerbocker magazine. Price SJ cents.

From T. O. H. P. Bi-rniiah, Boston, through PeterSon k Brothers, Philadelphia:—

FOR BETTER, FOR WORSE. A story from "Temple Bar," and "Tales of the Day." Illustrated. For notice of this work see books published by Messrs. Petersen, the second under the head of "Literary Notice*." Price 37 cents.

From Charles Scribner, Now York :— ELIJAH. A Sncrtd Drama, and other Poems. By Rev. Robert Davidson, D. D. Dr. Davidson has mauifold claims upon public estimation, as a sound divine, a careful historian, a scholar, a critic, and now a poet; for his "Elijah" is marked with the deep earnestness aud delicate and suggestive touches of the brotherhood whom ho "delighted to honor," in his popular lecture lately delivered. He has chosen from the wonderful history of the man of God, tho stupendous miracle wrought on the heights of Carmel, and rehearsed it with dramatic vigor and classical correctness, combined with poetic feeling and fancy. We instance the flue descriptions of nature, the conception of Jezebel's characterand presence, Elijah's noble stand for truth, Zabdiel's interpretation of prayer, the graceful chorus of the priests of Baal, and the closing chorus of the "Sons of the Prophets." Among the minor poems wo commend, as favorites, "Too Late," "Paul at Malta," and the popular verses "Compensations." May the success of the volume be deserving of the author and publisher!

THE EPISTLES TO THE SEVEN CHURCHES. By Richard Cheuevix Trench. Valuable for the theological amd Biblical student; critical, explanatory, and withal clear, as might bo expected from its careful author. One could wish to see his "Parables" printed in the same good tasteful style, uniform with the present volume.

From Charles Scribxer, New York, through J. B. LtPPiNcoTT & Co., Philadelphia:—

LESSONS IN LIFE. A Series of Familiar Essays. By Timothy Titcomb, author of "Letters to the Young," "Gold Foil," etc. J. G. Holland, the author of this

work, is one of the best of American writers in his peculiar school. This volume, though differing in kind from any of his previous works, yet bears upon it the marks of the same sound, practical sense that characterizes them all. He writes with the confidence of a mau who knows he is entitled to a hearing; and though the reader may not always agree with the opinions advanced, or propositions declared, yet they are stated with such an appearance of honesty and truthfulness of purpose that they will win his respect. Price $1 00.

From Harper k Brothers, New York, through J. B. Lippincutt k Co., Philadelphia:—

STREAKS OF LIGHT: or, Fifty-two Facts from the Bible for the Fifly-tico Sundays of (lie Year. By the author of " More about Jesus," " Reading without Tears," "Peep of Day," etc. An elegantly bound book, intended for our younger friends, and relating stories selected from the Bible. Tho book is very finely illustrated. Price 75 cents.

NOTICE TO QUIT. ByW. G. Wills, author of "Life's Foreshadowings." The author of this is evidently a shrewd reader of human nature, smucthingof a philosopher, and a ready writer. The principle which he announces as that of the "patent safely buffer," and illustrates in the tactics of Mrs. Bri;m, is novel in conception, though true to the life. The story is dated back years ago, in the days when the subject of railroads was first broached, and one of Us most striking characters Is Mr. Gowan, who is building a pet locomotive, which be warrants will run, when finished, at the incredible speed of "ten miles an hour," and which he feels certain will outdo anything "Geordie Stephenson" can produce. Price 50 cents.

From Tickxor k Fields, Boston, through W. P. HaZard, Philadelphia:—

SONGS IN MANY KEYS. By Oliver Wendell Holmes. This author is too well known to require au extended notice of the volume which he has just Issued. The book opens with a poem of considerable length, entitled "Agnes," embodying a New England Romance of more than a century ago. Afterwards follow* large number of shorter miscellaneous pieces, displaying all the poetr7> genius, and wit of which this talented aud versatile writer is capable. Price $1 25.

POEMS. By John G. Saxe. Complete In one volume. This elegant little volume, resplendent in blue and gold, embraces all the poems included in the first volume of Mr. Saxe's productions, published about twelve years ago ; and, added to these, as many more written fcince that period. The book is embellished by a fine frontispiece, representing the genial features of the author. It is a valuable addition to the library of standard poets published by the enterprising house of Tlcknor k Fields.

From Robert Carter k Brothers, New York, through Wm. S. k Alfred Martien, Philadelphia:—

THE NEAR AND THE HEAVENLY HORIZONS. By Madame de Gasparin. We have seen few books more replete with spiritual beauty and meaning. The author's descriptive powers are extraordinary, and the delicate touch with which she evolves, from the most ordinary incidents of an apparently prosaic life, a deep moral purpose and power, and the way in which she shows the workings of the Divine Spirit with the human soul, evince a great Insight into the mysteries of our being.

THOUGHTS ON HOLY SCRIPTURE. By Francis Bsc on, Lord Chancellor of England. Compiled by John 0. Hall, Pastor of the Reformed Dutch Church, Fort Plain, New York. This work, full of profound thought and clear exposition, will be a valuable addition to any one's library. It is a book to lie on the table for daily use and profit. Every sentence in it Is valuable not only for itself, but for what it suggests.

OLD MARGIE'S FLOWER STALL: and other Stories. Another of the pretty and intaresting little books for the young, valuable as impressing pure moral and religious truth, while amusing the Httlo reader.

HARRY DANGERFIELD, the Pohcfier. By A. L. O. E., anthoress of "Young Pilgrim," "The Adopted Son," etc. etc.

ANGUS TAKLTON: or. Hlustrations of the Fruits of th? Spirit. By A. L. O. E., authoress of the "Clareiaont Tales," etc etc.

These two little books, with their beautiful illustrations, and their story so pleasantly told, would be a valuable addition to every Sunday School library. The moral tone of all the works written by this anthor is pure and elevated, and her style is very simple and pleasing.

From MrxROE & Co., Boston and Cambridge:—

MOUNT AT BURN: its Scenes, Vs Beauties, and its Lessons. By Wilson Flag?, author of "Stndies in the Field and Forest." A volumo of essays and poems not only on Mount Auburn and its monuments and sacred dead, but on subjects connected with the last restingplace of mankind in all ages and countries. It is a work of interest and research.

THE ARTIST'S MARRIED LIFE; being that of Albert Darer. Translated from the German of Leopold ScheiFer, by Mrs. J. R. Stoddart. Revised edition, with Memoir. This beautiful and pathetic tale, athough called a novel, Is so far founded on fact that we may receive it, in all its main incidents, as a truo picture of tho life of the celebrated artist, Diiror. Sad as it is, it furnishes a mirror for many a worldly helpmate of a man of genins and sensibility to trace in it her own picture, and to sec the sad results that spring from anxious desires after earthly good.

THE MAGNET STORIES FOR SUMMER DAYS AND . WINTER NIGHTS. By the author of " A Trap to Catch a Suubeam," Mrs. S. C. Hall, etc. etc. With Illustrations. Every story in this beantiful little book is by well-known and approved writers. They are all interesting and profitable. It would be a pretty holiday gift

JUVENILES.—We have received a new package of books from the Protestaxt Episcopal Scnday-school UmoK, chiefly made up of a series of little volumes from the pen of Jenny Marsh Parker, six in number.

AROUND THE MANGER—is a series of simple explanations and applications of the blessings and duties clustering around Christmas. It is admirable.

SIMPLE LESSONS—have for their text the first stndy of the little ones connected with the church which supports this useful publishing house—the Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and the Ten Commandments. Parents and sponsors of such children will find this volume of great assistance in their promised religious training.

SEEDS FOR SPRING TIME. Excellent in its way, but not calculated to be of such real service as the other volumes by this excellent writer, as it Is devoted chiefly to ** tilings external."

"LIGHT OF THE WORLD," and "LIFE OF SAINT PAUL," are paraphrases of the Lives of Our Saviour an 1 "the Apostle of the Gentiles," in simple clear language.

FRANK EARNEST, a tale for boys, is in Mrs. Parker's happiest vein, worthy of a place by "The Boy Missiouary," and " Losing tho Way."

THE ISLAND OF LIFE. An allegory, founded upon the text, "These all confessed that they were pilgrims on the earth," good in itself, and very prettily gut up with graceful steel etchings.

JOAH AND LLUGWY, a Tale of North Wales, and THE CAPTIVE CHILDREN, are the last of these little volumes. The first gives us pictures from life in Wales, of which so little Is known; tho other is a touching story of some German children stolen by the Indians ou our frontiers, and finally restored to their parents.

Our February Ncmber.—On first opening the book, our subscribers will perceive the beautiful steel engraving of "Tho Snow Storm," and they will exclaim, "How beautiful!" Therefore it Is unnecessary for ut* to say anything more on the subject, except t" add that It Is beautiful. May we also ask attention to the pretty faces of tho t wo girls in this plate?

Our Fashion-plate hi also splendid—six figures—and copied from the actual dresses, not suppositions fashions,

Back of a Chair is also another illustration for this number, printed in six colors. To bo worked ou coarse canvas with bright colored zephyrs.

Not Puttino County Or State.—We have a letter from Mrs. Anna M. Anderson which we cauu"t answer, as neither town nor State is In her letter; and we havo one from Moutlcollo, no State given, and there are sixteen Monticcllos in tho post-office book. Why will not correspondents try and be a little careful? Always put Town, County and State.

A Plrasant Letter, With A Clitb.

Nvo. 27, 1861.

The Lady's Book has given the greatest possible satisfaction to the gentlemen as well as ladies. One of the former resumed his wife's subscription unsolicited, with this remark, that "Rasher was worth the price of the book." I think It has been all we could desire; aml we expect It to improve next year, not because it is not quite good enough already, but because our Godey always finds something new to improvo Its usefulness and appearance every year. I may add that all your subscribers in this place hope you may live long to be our guide in useful information and fashion, and all those other matters wo so much need to know, and all of which we so gladly receive through the unequalled Lady's Book. Miss K.

The Fort Dodge ReputIlican says: "If every one who borrows our copy would subscribe for one for themselves, but few houses in town would be without one."

What a reflection upon the ladies at Fort Dodge! Lt-t them all read this paragraph.

And here is another:—

The Canton Ledger says: "Our lady borroicers can attest to the value they place upon the book.*'

OUR MUSICAL COLUMN.

OrR record for the month is a little meagre. The little that is vouchsafed us, in Opera and Soiree, lacks spirit, and is therefore deficient in quality, even full houses and a not always empty treasury failing to put life into Binger and musician. Carl Wolfsohn andTueo. Thomas arc giving their third season of Classical Soirees; the Germauia Orchestra are very soberly goiug through their sixth winter at the Musical Fund Hall; Carl Gaertner'B Reunions at the Foyer of the Academy are continued; there is an occasional performance of Opera— just enough to be provoking—besides a few entertainments of a more private naturo; aud here the record ends.

Nt-.w Clturch Music Book.—Dr. Lowell Mason has edited and compiled, and Messrs. Mason Brothers, of New York, have just published, a book which, after careful examination, we do not hesitate to pronounco the host work for church choirs and singing schools that has appeared since the same author's well-known Carmiua Sacra. It is entitled Asaph or the Choir Book; a Collection of Vocal Music, Sacred and Secular, adapted for choirs, singing schools, musical societies, and social and religions assemblies. The elementary portion is fuller aud more intelligibly simplified than in other books of the kind, the exercises being enlivened by many secular pieces, glees, four part songs, etc., to the number of about two hundred. This feature must make the work particularly acceptable to singing schools. In the body of the volume are most of the old favorite church tunes with a very great variety of new matter, including, besides the usual metre tunes, anthems, sentences, motets, etc. We will undertake to send sample copies to chorister'*, teachers, and private singing circles, postage prepaid, on receipt of one dollar. The wholesale rate is $S per dozen, purchasers to pay freight or postage.

Star-Sjimiffl'd Banner.—Quite a beautiful little publication has just been issued by Mr. Jas. G. Gregory, Kew York, containing, first, the words of our gnat national song, a stanza to a page, each with an appropriate illustration, from drawings by Barley, four in all; and. secondly, the music with the words, arranged for the piano from Berg's arrangement, an additional four pages; the whole printed on heavy cream-tinted paper, In the most elegant stylo, with handsome illuminated cover. This little gem makes a neat table or piano ornament, and at the price—twenty-five cents per copy, the usual price of the music alone—deserves a large circulation. We can mail it to any address ou receipt of price.

Kew Shed Music for Pinno.—Meet mo Beneath the Willows, price 25 cents, is a very pretty serenade, composed by H. P. Danks. We have often had occasion to commend the music of Mr. Banks to our readers, and tins is one of his most pleasing compositions. Oh, Remember, a "Peasant's Song at Parting, is a beautiful composition by our contributor, J. II. McNaughton. Price 35 cents. War March is another piece by same composer. Price 35 cents. We will mail any of these pieces on receipt of price, or they may be ordered with music named in the January column. Address

Miss Hale's School.'—Philadelphia has always been celebrated for its schools for the education of young ladies, and has probably done more for the improvement of feminine intellect than auy other city in the Union. Among these, oue establishment we would like to mention, with some of the commendations it merits, that of Miss Hale, 1S2« Rittenhouse Square.

In some fashionable boarding-schools the lady who presides is very superficially acquainted with the various accomplishments taught apparently under her supervision, and has to rely on the competence of teachers employed. This is a very imperfect way of proceeding, as it is impossible to give a proper direction to auy business without understanding it. Miss Hale-is a lady of very superior attainments, and perfectly qualified, both by her knowledge, and by a loug experience in teaching, to discipline aud instruct the minds of those confided to her. Added to this she gives a most conscientious and watchful attention to the characters and dispositions of her pupils, and very carefully looks after their comfort and health. Her bouse is beautifully situated opposite a large park, which makes the air more salubrious than in the closer parts of the city. The young ladies have every indulgence compatible with improvement, aud wo do not hesitate to say are as happy as it is possible for children to be who are not in their parents1 house.

R. Spalding Again.—Iu our October number we advertised this individual. Why do not the country press also advertise him, aud protect their citizens against his depredations? The last time he was at Houdoul, N. Y., where ho promised a person a gold-stone pin for a mbscription. Now he is at Easton, Pa., where he has swindled two persons out of $2 50 each ; but we do not hear of any premium of a gold-stone pin, or any other bogus jewelry, but we think that portion of the busiuess has been concealed from us. This miserable attempt to save a few cents always loads to difficulties. Both of these subscribers at Easton paid $2 50 to a person without any authority, losing the whole amount of their money; and they could have secured the Book oue year by each sending us $3. We again repeat thatR. Spalding, or any person, has no authority from us to procure subscriptions to the Lady's Book, as wo have no agents.

TUB ROSE. The rose still maintains its position as the most attractive of flowers; every year adds a largo number of varieties to our extended lists, new at least in name, if cot in character; and it shall bo our especial endeavor, after careful comparisons, to point out such of them as ihow a decided improvement in their leading characteristics over pre-existing varieties.

A few remarks, also, about budded, or, as they are commonly called, grafted roses, may not be out of place here; there exists a most unfounded prejudice against them. Of conrse it is not recommended to bud all kindn, but there are numerous splendid varieties which appear to thrive only when budded on a strong growing stock; again, newly introduced varieties can at first rarely bo obtained on their own roots. The greatest objection to budded roues is the "suckcring" of the stock, which, if permitted to grow, naturally takes away the strength of the plant. When budded on the maiutti rose (which is the stock now generally used), they can readily be distinguished by the pale green color of the leaves and the brownish-green of their stems, armed with formidable thorns. They should be cut away clean from the base of starting, for which purpose the soil should be removed a little around the stem. There will be little trouble after the first season.

A fresh loamy soil, enriched with well rotted cowmanure, we have found the best for roses.

Ever-blooui.no Rosins cannot bo secured unless the plants are kept in a vigorous growing condition. To derive the greatest enjoyment from rose culture, the beds ihould be prepared exclusively for their benefit, and their fertility preserved by yearly top-dressing with well rotted manure; they should also be thoroughly pruned in the spring, removing all the old or stunted growth; the flowers also should be removed as soon as they begin to d**eay below the first joint.

Many of the most desirable kinds are liable to injury from severe winters, aud are covered with straw, etc., to protect them from heavy frosts. This mode of protection is unsightly and only partially effective; the simplest and surest method is to beud down the stem and peg them close to the surface of the ground; then draw the earth over them, so that they will bo covered about au inch deep. Where they stand so close as to reudor it difficult to cover in this mauuer, additional soil or sand should be procured to effect a thorough protection. No better mode can be adopted to secure a profusion of fine blooms.

The following roses have been selected after a careful comparison from the newest introductions, ami are confidently recommended:—
