Smoking and Drinking. By James Parton. 16mo. Paper, 50 cents; cloth, $1. This volume contains three articles on Smoking and Drinking, recently contributed to The Atlantic Monthly, by Mr. Parton, with a Preface. These have attracted unusual attention both from the public and the press. They deal thoroughly and candidly with topics of great individual and social interest, and should be read by all.

The Tribune says : “ His impressive statements on the subject of Drinking are of more value to the cause of temperance than volumes of inflated rhetoric.'

of the expenditures of the Government, of more than two hundred millions of dollars (212,374,259).

This work of “Benevolence” we believe to be unparalleled in the history of nations ; indeed, we do not remember that the thing on a similar scale has been even so much as attempted. In England, during the Crimean war, and in Germany during the struggle against Napoleon, men and women did much for the comfort and relief of their armies ; but nowhere else we believe have such spontaneous and systematic exertions been made, or such grand results accomplished, as in the United States. Nor were the “ people" of the South less generous or less patriotic. Such heroic sacrifices as many of them made were worthy of the highest humanity. It is true that many acts of great wickedness and barbarity were committed by brutal men; still, benevolence was often manifested by whites and blacks in the fullest measure. But the grand significance of these contributions lies in the deep and almost universal devotion thus manifested by the people in the cause at stake. All classes have taken part in them,—the widow with her mite, the rich merchant with his thousands, the children of the Sunday-school, the settler of the backwoods, and the American roaming in distant lands, and, for once, unanimity inspired by enthusiasm and a noble patriotism was evinced. If it really is "more blessed to give than to receive,” these contributors have indeed made a good investment in the way of "laying up treasures in heaven.”

All pallid lowers the southern sky

Its mist-like, dew-damp folds ;
All bleak and lone the trees stand op

Out on the barren wolds.
The hills now weep for beauty shorn;

The vales all yellow lie;
No more the angels' rosy breath

Will tinge the western sky.
Their purple mantles, fringed with gold,

Will sweep the air no more,
For sadly, mutely, listening low,

They've passed throngh heaven's door. And earth is left to winter's reign

That dark and dismal night. Earth's softest beauty swift hath fled To realms of golden light.


Gounod has a symmetrical face, a face indicative of the artist. His temperament partakes of the motive, in good proportion with much of that sanguineous element which inspires animation and sprightliness intellectually, and a love for physical enjoyment and society. He is possessed of much imagination and constructive ability; and a strong development of the organs of Mirthfulness and Tune is apparent.

The whole physiognomy evinces cultivation, affability, and polish. In fact, it is said that his graceful manners and easy politeness make a lasting impression on all who come in contact with him.

He was born in Paris, June 17th, 1817. Like most eminent musicians, he very early in life manifested much musical precocity, and was afforded by his parents the means for cultivating his gift. He studied chiefly under the direction of Halévy, the distinguished composer, and at the age of twenty-one composed the cantate “Ferdinand," receiving for it the first or “Roman" prize, awarded by the French Government to young musicians. The recipients of this prize were entitled to draw a stipend from the Government to defray the ex

PHILANTHROPY DURING THE LATE WAR.Though the taxes levied and collected during the war were heavy, the voluntary benevolent contributions by the people for the aid and relief of the soldiers and their families have amounted to over one hundred and eighty millions of dollars (187,209,608). The contributions for the care and comfort of soldiers by associations and individuals have amounted to over twenty-four millions of dollars (24,044,865). The contributions at the same time for sufferers abroad have been $380,140, and the contributions for freedmen, sufferers in the riots of July, 1863, and for the white refugees, have been $639,644, making a grand total, exclusive
