The object of the Publishers of THE EPISCOPAL REGISTER has been to give the MASSES of the Episcopal Church a Journal that should be at once attractive by its cheapness, and at the same time, to challenge comparison with any religious newspaper in the land, for fulness of Church News and variety of select family Reading Matter. The columns of THE FPISCOPAL REGISTER are kept kind and courteous in tone, and no attacks are made upon any one.





NO OTHER CHURCH PAPER HAS MET WITH SUCH MARKED SUCCESS. Its circulation has doubled within the past year.

Of which more than One Hundred Volumes have been issued, has received the commendation of Judge Story, Chancellor Kent, President Adams; historians Sparks, Prescott, Bancroft, and Ticknor; Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, and many others; and it admittedly "continues to stand at the head of its class."

IT IS ISSUED EVERY SATURDAY, giving fifty-two numbers, of sixty-four pages each, or more than Three Thousand double-column octavo pages of reading-matter yearly; enabling it to present with a combined freshness and completeness nowhere else attempted,

The best Essays, Reviews, Criticisms, Tales, Poetry, Scientific, Biographical,
Historical, and Political Information, gathered from the entire
body of Foreign Periodical Literature.

The ablest and most cultured intellects, in every department of Literature, Politics, Science, and Art, find expression in the Periodical Literature of Europe, and especially of Great Britain.

The Living Age, forming four large volumes a year, furnishes, from the vast and generally inaccessible mass of this literature, the only compilation, that, while within the reach of all, is satisfactory in the COMPLETENESS with which it embraces whatever is of immediate interest, or of solid, permanent value.

It is therefore indispensable to every one who wishes to keep pace with the events or intellectual progress of the time, or to cultivate in himself or his family general intelligence and literary taste.

Extracts from Recent Notices.

From Rev. Henry Ward Beecher. "Were I, in view of all the competitors that are now in the field, to choose, I should certainly choose THE LIVING AGE.... Nor is there in any library that I know of, so much instructive and entertaining reading in the same number of volumes."

From the Congregationalist, Boston. "None of the eclectics can be matched with this as to substantial value and interest."

From the Boston Post.

"It gives to its readers more than three thousand double-column octavo pages a year, of the most valuable, instructive, and entertaining reading of the day. History, biography, fiction, poetry, wit, science, politics, criticism, art, what is not here? It is the only compilation that presents with a satisfactory completeness, as well as freshness, the best literature of the almost innumerable, and generally inaccessible, European quarterlies, monthlies, and weeklies,a literature embracing the productions of the ablest and most cultured writers living.

From the New-York Evening Post.

"Its strong claim is, that it saves its patrons the necessity of taking any foreign periodicals whatever, as the editors permit nothing good in the whole range of the European magazines and reviews to escape them.... In no other single publication can there be found so much of sterling literary excellence."

From the New-York Tribune.

"The selections always indicate a refined and catholic taste, and a happy art of catering to the popular demands without lowering the standard of sound literature."

From the Williams Quarterly.

"It is inexhaustible. It has as much that is good as a dozen ordinary magazines combined."

From the Lutheran and Missionary, Philadelphia. "An extraordinary value marks many of the articles of this publication, because they are the productions of the ablest men of our times."

From the American Churchman, Chicago. "It has always seemed to us to contain the best poetry, the most able essays and criticisms, and the most interesting stories of any magazine in the English language."

From the Advance, Chicago. "For thinking people, the best of all the eclectic publications, and the cheapest. . . ... It is a monthly that comes every week."
