Among the novelties, for the forthcoming season, we have to announce a New work to be called the English Annual, two volumes of which have already appeared, but the whole of the Editions have been exported to America and the Continent. The volume, in consequence of certain facilities, which the proprietor exclusively enjoys, will be offered in a form considerably larger and cheaper than similar publications, and in all respects equal to them in its graphic and literary contents.

The Oriental Annual for 1836, by the Rev. H. Caunter, B.D., will exceed either of its predecessors, in the variety and beauty of the illustrations from the pencil of W. Daniell, Esq.

FINE ARTS.

Stanfield's Coast Scenery, a Series of Views in the British Channel, and

on the Coasts of England, Scotland, Ireland, France, and Germany, and other Picturesque Portions of the European Continent. By CLARKSON STANFIELD, Esq. R. A. Smith, Elder, and Co., Cornhill. This third number contains, firstly, a view of “ Porchester Castle," It is beautifully drawn and engraved, but is not naturally very striking. There are many bistorical associations connected with this ruin, that give it ample claims to be celebrated by a pencil so skilful as that of Stanfield's. The second view, that of the “ Needles,” is particularly happy and impressive ; the distribution of the light and shade, and the flowing of the troubled sea, are beyond praise. The sky bas rather a massive appearance, evidently the fault of the engraver. The next plate, “Stonehouse Bridge,” Plymouth, will be immediately recognizable by every one who bas visited that spot. It is a good production, though the features of the scenery are homely. The last engraving, the approach to “St. Malo,” is a plate of the highest

merit, and is honourable both to the painter and the engraver. This number is a very superior one, and gives us an earuiest of the excellence that is to come. The letter-press is very appropriate. It seems almost a sin against patriotism not to possess oneself of a work so peculiarly national.

A Series of Heads, after the Antique Illustrations of the Ideal Beauty of

the Greeks, and designed as a Drawing Book for advanced Pupils, accompanied by descriptive Letter Press, drawn and executed on Stone, by BENJAMIN RICHARD GREEN. Rowney and Co. Rathbone Place.

A youthful “ Hercules,” in the British Museum, affords the first model for this finely executed number. It is extremely well shadowed, and smoothly grained.

Esculapius," from the Louvre, is a fine personification of intelligent age. In the “ Isis," from the Capitolini Museum, the returning light under the chin appears to us to be too broad, which gives the features a pinched up appearance. Pluto, or Serapis,” from the Vatican, is a splendid bead, and extremely well lithographed. These beads must form very valuable studies for the portrait painter, whether in oils or miniature. It is such models as these that should be presented to the tyro, and not the crude, and often ill drawn faces that we generally see in drawing books.

THE COMMERCIAL RELATIONS OF THE COUNTRY.

As far as the hand of God can benefit us, we are, with reference to the harvest, a happy people. As to our external commerce, it is generally speaking, languishing. Owing to the injudicious measure adopted towards our slave colonies, there will be a great deficiency in the usual im. ports from the West Indies, many ships returning from thence but half laden, and some actually in ballast. The British Canadas also seem in. clined to look out for a better market than that afforded to them by the mother country, to which they owe all their prosperity. The continental and northern nations are all striving to set up for themselves, and to put us aside. Russia will soon entirely monopolize the trade of the Levant, and our trade to the far east seems exceedingly precarious. This is a dismal picture, but much of its sombre colouring we owe to the liberal Whigs. At home there will always be, while the nation remains so populous, great domestic consumption, and an extensive inland trade.' Our manufactures that supply the foreign market, are certainly doing a great deal of business at the least possible profits to the masters, and at starvation wages for the mechanics and labourers. We fear much that a great crisis is at hand. As to the shipping interest, it is in a deplorable state of decadence.
