NEW YORK, December, 1864. The Piano Fortes, Grand, Square, and Upright, manufactured by Messrs. Steinway & Sons, have established for themselves so world wide a reputation that it is hardly possible for us to add any thing to their just fame. Having thoroughly tested and tried these instruments personally for years, both in public and private, it becomes our pleasant duty to express our candid opinion regarding their unquestioned superiority over any other piano known to us. Among the chief points of their uniform excellence are : Greatest possible depth, richness, and volume of tone, combined with a rare brilliancy, clearness, and perfect evenness throughout the entire scale, and above all a surprising duration of sound, the pure and sympathetic quality of which never changes under the most delicate or powerful touch. This peculiarity is found exclusively in the Steinway Piano, and together with the matchless precision, elasticity, and promptness of action always characterizing these instruments, as well as their unequaled durability under the severest trials, is truly surprising, and claims at once the admiration of every artist. We, therefore, consider the " Steinway" Pianos in all respects by far the best instruments made in this country or Europe, use them solely and exclusively ourselves, in public or private, and recommend them invariably to our friends and the public. .

We hove at different times expressed our opinion regarding the pianos of various makers, but freely and unhesitatingly pronounce Messrs. Steinway & Sons' Pianos, both grand and square, incomparably superior to them all.

ROYAL VICTORIA

HOTEL.

This Hotel, situated at NASSAU, NEW PROVIDENCE, BAHAMAS, was built by the Colonial Government, and is a handsome three-story building, erected on an elevation a few minutes' walk from the shore, and commanding a fine view of the ocean, harbor, and town of Nassau.

Surrounding the Hotel is a piazza ten feet wide, from which the inmates can at all times enjoy the gentle, cooling, easterly trade winds. INVALIDS unable to bear much fatigue will have a promenade extending one thousand feet, without leaving the building. All of the TROPICAL FRUITS grow in great abundance, and are in season the entire winter.

But little rain falls from the month of October to the first of June. THIS IS CONSIDERED THE PECULIAR SEASON FOR INVALIDS, though they can reside the entire year with comfort and safety. The roads are macadamized, and kept in good order. A most BEAUTIFUL DRIVE extends for twelve miles along the sea shore. In fact, every thing combines to make it a pleasant home for the robust as well as for the invalid.

The Lessee of the Hotel has recently secured the services of Mr. James Carroll, late of the " NEW YORK HOTEL," who will have the entire superintendence, and is determined to do all in his power to minister to the wants and comforts of his guests.

The CULINARY and other departments shall be well supplied, the cooks the hest obtainable, and the servants attentive and unobtrusive.

The CUNARD CO.'S STEAM-SHIP CORSICA leaves the wharf at Jersey City and New York once a month for Nassau. The fare to Nassau is forty-five dollars. The charges for board are Three Dollars ($3 00) per day.
