B. FRANK. PALMER, Surgeon - Artist to the Government Hospitals,
Has the honor to announce that, in order to supply the unexampled demand of the ARMY and NAVY for the Arm and Leg, he has greatly increased his facilities at the NATIONAL STUDIO IN PHILADELPHIA, and opened capacious BRANCHES in NEW-YORK and BOSTON.
THREE THOUSAND PALMER LIMBS
Have been commenced, and the inventor will be enabled to adjust them at the rate of one hundred per month, if required. They will be provided for mutilated soldiers of very limited means at prime cost, and in extreme cases at less than cost-it being the design to supply all patriotic men who lose limbs in the country's service.
The PALMER LIMBS will be adjusted for persons in civil life on the usual terms. Nearly five thousand adjustments have been made, which furnish a criterion by which to judge of the merit of the inventions.
All persons having limbs furnished by PALMER & Co., or by any person representing them, will i the future address the firm, or the inventor, when in want of duplicate limbs, or any other professional service.
CAUTION.-No other person (whether formerly in the firm, or in the employ of PALMER & Co.) has now the right to construct or repair the PATENT LIMBS for the Company in New-York.
Inquire for (or address) the inventor at the NEW OFFICE, on the ground-floor, CLINTON HALL.

THE Commencement of the Sixtieth Volume of the KNICKERBOCKER finds the publisher more than ever determined to merit the seal of approbation which for thirty years the public has placed on its favorite monthly. It is universally conceded that no periodical in our country has so deep a hold on the affections of the reading community as this. The generous support it has received during the past year--a year of extraordinary depression in affairs-is the best evidence that can be adduced of its popularity. Where other periodicals have languished, and in some cases gone out of existence, the KNICKERBOCKER has not only held its own, but, by arrangements just completed, has succeeded in gathering once more within its time-honored sanctum nearly all of that joyous club of genial wits whose name is legion, and whose varied contributions in literature and art have in past times so greatly enriched its pages. The humorous and the pathetic, the gay and the grave, will be judiciously intermingled, while contributions, prepared by distinguished writers, will embrace critical, historical, biographical, and scientific subjects. These will not consist of dry and pedantic essays, but will be the vigorous and spirited productions of a live race of authors.
The editorial conduct of the magazine will remain under the control of CHARLES G. LELAND, one of the most accomplished authors and critics in America, and who at this day ranks with the foremost of living writers in every department of art and letters. Besides his editorial labors, Mr. LELAND Will
be a regular contributor to the body of the work.
RICHARD B. KIMBALL, whose 'St. Leger' and 'Undercurrents' first appeared in the pages of the KNICKERBOCKER, will continue his contributions.
The publisher wishes distinctly to announce that the original design of producing a purely literary periodical will be strictly adhered to. In conclusion he begs to say, while making these announcements touching the future of the KNICKERBOCKER, and giving promises of zeal and industry in carrying them out, he expects, after all, that the magazine will be judged on its merits, and he confidently appeals to the public for its verdict in that regard.
Three Dollars a year, in advance. Two copies for Four Dollars and Fifty Cents. Three copies for Six Dollars.
The KNICKERBOCKER and any other $3 magazine will be sent one year for Four Dollars.
A discount of ten per cent from our lowest prices will be allowed to persons sending us clubs of ten or more subscribers. Money sent by mail, when registered, is at our risk.
Newspapers copying this, and giving the KNICKERBOCKER monthly notices, will be entitled to an exchange. A marked copy of the paper will greatly assist us in correcting our exchange list. All communications to be addressed to
