WM. OSBORN, PRINTER.

EDITED BY LEWIS GAYLORD CLARK. •

This is pronounced, by the press of America and England, the best Magazine in America.' It has now completed its thirty-fifth volume, and in its list of upward of a hundred contributors, are found the names of every distinguished writer, male and female, in America, with several equally promi. nent of Great Britan, Turkey, Sweden, etc. A new volume will commence with the first day of July, 1850. The following notices of the KNICKERBOCKER are from the American and English press, to which might be added hundreds of others.

* The last KNICKERBOCKER is exceedingly good. Some of the articles are worthy of Blackwood's palmiest days. The Editor's Table is in Mr. CLARK's happiest vein; varied and racy in a remarkable degree.'-Nero-York Commercial Advertiser.

• THE KNICKERBOCKER seems to increase in attraction as it advances in age. It exhibits a monthly variety of contributions unsurpassed in number or ability.' - National Intelligencer.

"THE KNICKERBOCKER is one of the most valuable Magazines of the day, and outstrips all competition in the higher walks of literature.' - Albany Argus.

'THE KNICKERBOCKER MAGAZINE is now beyond a question the magazine of the country. Whoever wishes his money's worth, and something over, let him subscribe now to 'Old KNICK,' and our word for it, the Editor's Table aloue will amply satisfy his expectations. It is not a periodical to be lightly glanced over and thrown by, but it forms a library book to save and re-read. A set of the KNICKERBOCKEA, bound up in volumes, on the shelves of one of our popular libraries, is more consulted (so the librarian has often told us) than any other similar work.'— Boston Daily Transcript.

THE LONDON EXAMINER. — 'This very clever Magazine is the pleasantest periodical in the United States. Its articles, which are numerous and short, various and interesting, are well worthy of imitation by our Magazines on this side of the Atlantic.'

LONDON · MORNING CHRONICLE. — Judging from the numbers before us, we are inclined to consider this the best of all the American literary periodicals. Its contents are highly interesting, instructive and amusing.'
