LITTLE JONATHAN.

GENERAL MAC. "There, shut your eyes and go to sleep like a good boy, and in the morning I will have a nice new Victory, with lots of Prisoners for you!"

This View of the Block (split) out of which "THE WOODEN GUNS" were made, showeth how the Editors do sometimes make things up out of their own Heads. [Vide N. Y. Tribune.]

NOW READY
ANOTHER GREAT ORIGINAL STORY IN
THE NEW YORK WEEKLY,
By Mrs. HELEN CORWIN FISHER,
Entitled,

RACHEL DEVEREUX;

OR,

The Wolf of

Vignoble.

Mrs. Fisher is well known to the readers of THE NEW YORK WEEKLY as the writer of the pleasant and entertaining sketches under the nom de plume of "Nonesuch," and those who read her serials, "Carrie Emerson Wilde" and "The Curse of Everleigh," can not but be pleased with an opportunity to judge of her abilities in a more extended effort. She is a young writer who has won no small popularity by her delightful sketches and serials and bids fair, with care and study, to ultimately take rank among the first lady writers in the land. We only ask for her, what we are sure she will get, a careful perusal of her forthcoming serial by the numerous readers of THE NEW YORK WEEKLY. It can not fail to be fresh and entertaining as everything is that conies from her pen.

Preface.

These sketches were written to lessen the tedium of my lengthy imprisonment; and if they serve to recall to my prison-companions the scenes enacted in the old Warehouse, and enlist the interest and sympathies of the reader, they will have accomplished all that is desired by the publication of them.

With the exception of "Homeward Bound," they were all written within prison walls, and brought to the North sewn securely in the lining of an overcoat.

I confidently trust to my brother-officers for their testimony as to their fidelity of description of our "domestic economy," and the accuracy of detail in the varied incidents in our prison-life in the Tobacco Warehouse.
