HARPER'S WEEKLY.

[FEBRUARY 13, 1864.

112

A REAL TROUBLE.

"Thought it was perfectly horrid! Yes—and the Wretch said it was time that American Ladies of Taste made their own Fashions; and would you believe it, PAPA sided with him, and MAMMA and I became severely angry, and went to Bed."

THE NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW.

NO. CCII.—For January, 1864.

Edited by Professor JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL and CHAS. ELIOT NORTON, Esq.

CONTENTS: ART. I. Life of William H. Prescott; II. The Bible and Slavery; III. The Ambulance System; IV. The Bibliotheca Sacra; V. Immorality in Politics; VI. The Early Life of Governor Winthrop; VII. The Sanitary Commission; VIII. Renan's Life of Jesus; IX. The President's Policy; X. Critical Notices.

Article IX., by Professor James Russell Lowell, on THE PRESIDENT'S POLICY, is thus spoken of by the New York Evening Post.

"The NORTH AMERICAN, after this, should be a favorite at the White House. Mr. Lincoln will find, in some of the views which this article takes of his public course, an explanation of his official acts quite as satisfactory, probably, as any which his own dexterity of statement, and that is not small, could furnish."

THE NOREH AMERICAN REVIEW is published quarterly, on the first days of January, April, July, and October, in numbers of about three hundred pages each, containing matter equal to an ordinary octavo volume.

TERMS. Five Dollars a year, or one dollar and twenty-five cents a number.

Agents should be careful in directing their orders for our Original and "only Genuine" Extra Large Size Stationery Prize Packages, which have become so popular through the fine quality and value of their contents. As we have several imitators, who copy our Styles, Advertisements, Premiums, &c., we are the only manufacturers of the "Celebrated Rickards Prize Packages," and none are genuine unless bought direct from us. We still do as we have done for years past, present free to every one who acts as our agent a Fine Gold or Silver Hunting-Case Watch, "Genuine English Movements," and warranted a correct time-keeper. These watches are presented on the spot or sent with the first order. No one else does this. A single one of our Wonderful Packages contains more really valuable articles than any half dozen others ever sold. Among the surprising contents of "each package" will be found Fine Stationery, Pens, Pencils, Envelopes, Engravings, Ladies' Fashion Plates, Designs for Needle-work, Cottage Keepsakes, Household Companions, Letter-Writer's Instructor, Parlor Amusements, Gent's Pocket Calendars for 1864, Union Emblems, Camp Companions for Soldiers, Military Likenesses, Games, Army Advice. Rare Recipes, Many Ways to get Rich, Yankee Notions, Fancy Articles, Rich and Costly Presents of Fashionable Jewelry, &c., &c., all together worth many dollars, for only 25c. Agents make immense profits. 100 to 200 per cent. allowed. We guarantee smart agents can make $15 per day. Our regular agents average that.

Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper, of Aug. 22, says: "Messrs. NORTON & CO. have combined two very desirable things in a watch—cheapness and reliability. When it is known that for $7 a person can have an excellent timekeeper, there will be greater punctuality in all the affairs of life."
