A MONTHLY REGISTER
Of the most important Works published in NORTH and SOU
Messrs. TRUBNER& Co., 60, Paternoster Row, London, have imported and supply the whole of the American and Oriental Works named in this Literary Record.
DlCKEKS AND INTERNATIONAL COPYRIGHT.—In our last number we referred to the purchase, by Messrs. Ticknor and Fields, of Boston, of th» copyright of a tale by Mr. Dickens, and suggested a doubt as to whether the American Copyright Law permitted a foreigner to hold copyright in the United States. The matter being of considerable interest to the English public, our paragraph was quoted in The Times and other newspapers, and immediately called forth a letter in which, with a great parade of legal knowledge, a firm, generally supposed to possess a more than ordinary acquaintance with copyright law, met our statement with a flat contradiction. Unfortunately the letter did not come before us until it was too late to set the matter right in the channel where it appeared, and we therefore take this opportunity of stating that, although the American Copyright Acts of 1790, 1802, and 1831, distinctly speak of "residents" in the United States as being entitled to copyright, the American Law Courts hare defined the term residents to mean permanent residents in the country, and hare distinctly declared that " a person temporarily residing in the United States even though he had declared his intention of becoming a citizen, cannot take, or hold, a copyright." Mr. Dickens's temporary residence, therefore, in the United States, gives him no right to a copyright, and as any rights Messrs. Ticknor and Fields may hare must spring from the author, it will be obvious that the only error in our assertion was its modesty. The fact is that one grand distinction between English and American Copyright Law is this:—The English Copyright Law, as laid down by our judges, gives to foreigners resident here, whether temporarily or permanently, all the privileges of English citizens; the American Copyright Law confers on American citizens only copyright privileges, or, in a few words, foreigners may hold copyrights in England, but no foreigner can hold a copyright in the United States.
Lippincott's Magazine For January And February.— The great fault of recent periodical literature has been its ephemeral character. Magazine articles, like newspaper paragraphs, seem to be written on the assumption that they will be read to-day and forgotten to-morrow; hence there has arisen a slip-shod style of writing which reflects no credit on literature, and, as remuneration depends upon length, we have all the vices of "penny-a-lining" with ten times ita pretension. How much this has has tended to degrade literature and to injure public taste the present dearth of really good books emphatically proves. The establishment of St. PauVs Magazine in England, and of Lippincott's Magazine in the United States, shows that there aro yet to be found men who believe that it is the province of periodical literature to lead, not to follow, public taste. May every success attend such efforts. In the two numbers of Lippincott's Magazine now before us, we have a capital collection of well written papers, suited for every taste. Fiction leads the way in an American novel, called "Dallas Galbraith." "The Old Slateroof House" supplies some exceedingly interesting facts in
connection with William Penn and the Settlement of Pennsylvania. In the articles entitled "The Necessity of Education in a Republic," "Trade and Currency," "The National Finances," both English and American politicians will find food for contemplation* All who are interested in American antiquities will be pleased with the genial and appreciative article on "The Labours of the Abbe1 Brasseur." "Alaska " is a concise but interesting account of the recent purchase by the American Government, and savours somewhat of an attempt to make the best of a doubtful bargain. "The Reminiscences of Fitz Greene Halleck" is anecdotal and eulogistic, but well worth reading. The article on "European Affairs" is written, we beli eve, by M. Louis Blanc, who is, we do not hesitate to say, more competent to write upon such a subject than any man living—though at the same time we are sure that, like all foreigners, he does not and cannot understand English politics. It is, however, gratifying when Englishmen are uniting with revolutionary Irishmen in denouncing the English treatment of Ireland, to find a man of culture and. refinement removed from the sphere of our party politics declaring his conviction that "for the last forty years England has endeavoured to be just to Ireland." Under the title of "Our Monthly Gossip" and "Literature of the Day" there is a fair resumi of matters educational, literary, and political.
New Periodicals.—The Magpie is a new comio periodical to be published fortnightly in New York, and to be made up of extracts from Punch, Judy, Fun, Charivari, Kladderadatsch, and other humorous European journals. Its great feature is to be the reproduction of Punch's cartoons by photo-lithography.—The Southern Pen and Pulpit is a monthly just commenced at Columbia, Tenn.,by Rev. J. M. P. Otes.—The American Journal of Obstetrics and Diseases of Women and Children, a new quarterly, will appear on the 1st of May; at New York, under the editorship of Drs. Emil, Nolgarth, and B. W. Dawson.—The first number of The Week appeared on the 15th of January, and met with a very favourable reception. In appearance it much resembles its professed model Public Opinion. As the editor gets his hand m he will better learn "the fitness of things," and will not consider a report of a meeting held in an upper room of an obscure hall in Bayswater "a reflex" of English opinion on the revision of the Prayer Book.—El Correo Sispano Americano, a new illustrated journal of commerce, agriculture, mining, etc., devoted to the interests of the Spanish American States, will be issued thrice a month.—The Southern Journal of Education, a monthly of 16 pp., has just been commenced at Shelbyville, Kentucky.—The New Eclectic comes from Baltimore. It consists of 128 pp. of matter selected from 8t. Paul's, and other English magazines.—The National Guard Gazette, supporting the interests of the New York State, is a small monthly consisting of 8 pp. issued at Albany.—The American Atheneeum is to be devoted weekly to the progressive and aesthetic sciences, and to the individual culture and advancement of the human race. — The Housewife, a monthly of 16 pp., is published at Brattlebow, Vermont.— The Standard Bearer, a new Temperance paper, issues from Chelsea, Mass.—The American Freemason is a new quarterly from Cincinnati.—The Occident is a new weekly Presbyterian newspaper, issued at San Francisco.—The Standard is a new weekly Baptist newspaper from Chicago.—The Morning Star is to be the title of a new weekly Roman Catholic journal, to be issued at New Orleans.
Dkan Alford undertook to correct the English speaking public in the use of the Queen's English, but was caught tripping by Mr. George Washington Moon, who delivered a castigation to the Dean for his English. Now Mr. Moon, in his turn, finds a corrector in Mr. Edward S. Gould, who shows pretty clearly that Mr. Moon has been adopting the old clerical plan of instruction—" Not what I do but what I say, my brethren, must be notod."
Peter Force, to whom the people of the United States owe much for his industry in collecting together the Historical Records relating to their country, died recently in Washington, in his 78th year. He contemplated the issue of twenty
volumes of The American Archives, of which only nine have been published. It was generally understood that he had nearly the whole of the remaining volumes in manuscript ready for the press. WTe hope this invaluable collection will yet find its way into print.
Edward Everett's celebrated oration on "The Conduct of the War,'1 said to have been delivered sixty times in the years 1861 and 1862, will be published in the fourth volume of " Everett's Orations," now in tho press at Boston.
The GosrEL In The Trees is the odd title of a new book announced by the Rev. Alexander Clark.
Bishop Clark, of the Methodist Episcopal Church, is about to publish a volume of sermons.
At the celebration of the centenary of the Methodist Episcopal Church, in the United States, tho sum collected to further the interests of that church amounted to nearly eight and a quarter millions of dollars, or more than £1.500,000 sterling. The fact of such a sum, collected in less than one year in one denomination, in addition to the ordinary demands of the church, has no parallel in religious history.

Alger.—The Friendships of Women. By WilLiam Rocnseville Aloer. 8vo. cloth, pp. xvi. and 416. Boston, 1868. 8s.
Mr. Alger considers that with women friendship is the guide to love, the ally of love, the purified fulfilment and repose into which love subsided, and ofttimes the comforting substitute for love, lie differs alike from Pope, who wrote " most women have no character at all," and from Heine, who maintained that women have a new character daily. He has no sympathy with those who, reasoning from such premises, think women unfitted for friendship. In a series of very interesting chapters, interspersed with anecdotal and brief biographical detail, he traces the friendship of women in every relation of life, and endeavours to show that for women to whom the all-engrossing passion of love is denied, friendship offers the best substitute, and that even to love itself friendship, such as he depicts, will be found a happy supplement. By friendship he means something higher and holier tlian that which usually bears the name—it is with him a species of intellectual and religious sympathy and union of natures. Friendship, however, is too cold a term by which to characterise that mixture of respect, gratitude, and affection which springs from child to parent, or that protecting and enduring love which parents have for children, both of which are so happily developed when they are blended with mental and devotional sympathies. And who can bear to use the word friendship to the relations between brothers and sisters, wives and husbands ? between affection and friendship the distance is as great as that between real love and its Platonic counterpart.

THE ATLANTIC ALMANAC FOR 1868. Edited by O. W. Holmes and D. G. Mitchell. Illustrated. Royal 8vo. pp. 76. Boston. Almanacs are from their very nature ephemeral, hut tho editors of this Atlantic Almanac have sought as it were to bind the fleeting months with cords of evergreen, and crown them with undying wreaths and chaplets. There are scattered through these pages prose by Dickens and Emerson, Hawthorne and Beechcr; poetry by Tennyson and L'mgfcllow, Whittier and Owen Mcrdith, Hood and IiOwell, Thacketiiy and Bryant, together with charming original gossipping and instructive articles from the practised pens of the editors. Four beautiful Chromo-lithographs of tho Seasons, with many good wood-engravings, show that the artists have vied with the editors in the endeavour to produce a annual which will have an interest long after the year for which it has been prepared.
