Prospectus of the Tenth Volume of the "Atlantic Monthly." The July number commences a new Volume, the Tenth, of the Atlantic Monthly. Arrangements already made warrant the Publishers in promising to those who read the ATLANTIC a great variety of the best articles in all departments of literature. An increase of many thousands in circulation since the year began, is sufficient evidence of the permanent hold on popular favor which the Magazine has won. During the great struggle in behalf of good government and civil liberty, the ATLANTIC has always enlisted the foremost talent of the country to strengthen its pages, and it will constantly be conducted with a single aim to the best interests of the Republic.

In the department of Novels and Stories, the Atlantic will in future be specially well supplied, some of our most popular writers being now engaged on Romances and Tales for its columns. The author of “Life in the Iron-Mills” and “A Story of To-Day ” has just completed a work of remarkable power and interest, entitled, “DAVID GAUNT,” which will soon be commenced in its pages.

The late THEODORE WINTHROP, the author of “Cecil Dreeme” and “John Brent,” left a most interesting journal of his travels, which will appear shortly in the Atlantic, with the title of “ LIFE IN THE OPEN AIR.” The record is full of adventure, and can not fail of commanding attention.

The author of “My Garden," in the May number, has contributed several articles for forthcoming numbers of the Magazine, full of fresh and sparkling interest.

Professor Lowell and Professor Agassiz will continue their popular contributions, so widely welcomed at home and abroad.

Mr. T. W. Higginson, whose valuable and entertaining papers from the commencement of the ATLANTIC MONTHLY have formed one of its most attractive series of articles, will still supply its pages with timely Essays.

In Prose and Poetry the ATLANTIC Staff of Writers is unequaled. The following authors are still among the regular contributors :

James Russell Lowell,
Henry W. Longfellow,

CLINTON HALL, Astor Place, New-York.

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 Ley, 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 casos 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 in 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.

OF THE

KNICKERBOCKER MAGAZINE.

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 bas 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 niore within its time-houored 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 pathetie, the gay and the grave, will be judiciously iutermingled, while contributions, prepared by distinguished writers, will embrace critical, historical, biographical, and scientific subjects. These will not consist of dry and pedantie essays, but will be the vigorous and spirited productions of a lire 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 confi ntly appeals to the public for its verdict in that regard.

TERMS.

Three Dollars a year, in advance. Two copies for Four Dollars and Filty ('ents. Three copies for Six Dollars.
