DEAN and SON, 35, THREADNEEDLE STREET; and, by Order, of all Booksellers. (52)

M. I. S. C. E. L. L. A N E O U s. THE undersigned beg to invite the attention of Booksellers and Publishers to the facilities afforded by their establishment for the Sale of Books, Engravings, Stationery, &c. They are the conductors of the REGULAR NEW YORK TRADE SALES OF Books, STEREotype PLATEs, STAtionERY, and all MERCHANDIse of this class,

which are held by them semi-annually, under the direction of a Committee appointed by the Trade, and which have been thus conducted by them for the last ten years. It is believed that these Sales afford means superior to any other for the introduction to the notice of the American Trade both of surplus and new stock adapted to circulation in the United States. These are the only sales held in New York which are patronised by the leading and most extensive houses, and are fully attended by the dealers of the United States and Canadas. Their next sale of English Books will take place during the month of April, and they will be happy to include in their Catalogue any consignments the particulars of which may be furnished to their agents.

They also tender their services in the disposal of all property appropriate to their line of business, whether by auction or private sale. , Doing exclusively a Commission Business, they have no other interests to serve than those of consignors, who, therefore, may rely on faithful and prompt attention.

Liberal Cash advances will be made when required.

MR. SAMPSON LOW, 169, FLEET STREET, is their AGENT IN LoNDoN, and will exhibit Catalogues of previous Sales, and afford all needful explanations.

This Institution has been founded with a view to throw open to classes which have hitherto been debarred from their enjoyment, those increased physical comforts, and facilities for moral and intellectual education, refined social intercourse, and rational recreation, which are the most attractive characteristics of modern civilization, but which, in the absence of individual wealth, associated numbers alone can command. Its members thus enjoy the advantages of being able to make themselves more efficient and valuable in their respective occupations, while at the same time their hours of relaxation assume a double value from the opportunities afforded of spending them in a manner at once improving and delightful.

The various departments of the Institution are now in full operation. The dining and refreshment rooms

(where the members may obtain dinner and refreshments at prices calculated merely to cover expenses, and free of gratuities to waiters), reading, news, chess, and smoking rooms, are open from eight in the morning till night. Classes are established for the study and practice of | languages, chemistry, vocal music, elocution, mathe| matics, historic and dramatic literature, discussion,

fencing, dancing, &c. Weekly réunions are held every Tuesday evening in the drawing-room, for conversation, music, and other entertainments, to which the members are free, and every facility is afforded for such other studies and amusements as are demanded by the members.
