WHEN YOU ASK FOR
GLENFIELD PATENT STARCH,

SEE THAT YOU GET IT,
AS INFERIOR KINDS ARE OFTEN SUBSTITUTED.

WOTHERSPOON & Co., GLASGOW & LONDON,

80, QUEEN STREET,

Loxpox, 23rd August, 1800.
Messrs. R. WOTHERSPOON & Co.
4, Dunlop-street, Glasgow.
DEAR SIRS,

I have, as requested, to-day visited the Royal
Laundry, with reference to the Advertisement of the Not-
tingham firm, who state that their Starch has been used for
many years in the Royal Lanndry, and have been assured by
Mr. Thompson, the Superintendent, that none but yourselves
have any right to state that they supply Starch to her Ma-
jesty's Laundry, as no other Starch is there used, nor has
been used for some years, but

the Glenfield Patent Starch.
I have been further assured that your Starch continues
to give complete satisfaction, and that though trial has been
made of samples of various Starches, none of these have been
found nearly equal in quality to the Glenfield.

I am, Dear Sirs,
Your obedient Servant,

WM. BLACK.

MRS. S. C. HALL'S NEW MAGAZINE.

Price One Shilling Monthly, No. I. ready March 23, 1861,

THE ST. JAMES'S MAGAZINE,

CONDUCTED BY MRS. S. C. HALL.

[blocks in formation]

PROSPECTUS. I have been induced to undertake the conduct of a new Magazine, designed to promote the Interests of Home, the Refinements of Life, and the Amusement and Information of all Classes,

The many eminent and popular authors with whom I have the honour to be associated, and upon whose cordial and zealous aid I am permitted to calculate, will give to the publication a Character and a Value for Originality and Vigour such as to establish it in public favour. Its fate must depend entirely on its merits; there can be no other ground on which to sustain anticipations of success. Every reader is now a critio and a judge; and that which is either mediocre or indifferent will be inevitably rejected. With this conviction the enterprise is undertaken: the Proprietors will do their duty; I will endeavour to do mine.

In this Magazine, neither Religious nor Political discussion will have any place; although, I trust, there will be a full consciousness of the power that is delegated to every author to advance, with due humility, the true interests of both : bearing in mind that every printed word becomes a planted seed that must spring up-a weed or flower; and that pure Religion and Political Progress may be advocated indirectly, where to do so directly would be apart from an appointed office and an allotted purpose. Due attention will be paid to the lessons that are continually taught by Science for the promotion of Health Order, and Social good; Taste will be regarded as the handmaid of Virtue whose efforts may be equally beneficial in the parlour and the boudoir, either where means are restricted or resources unlimited ; and while we seek to inte. rest by agreeable and instructive Fiction, adequate regard will be had to the importance of newly-discovered or newly-developed Facts; and, above all, generous sympathies will be excited to advance the loftier aims and holjer objects of Humanity.

The Magazine will be “Illustrated" with Steel Etchings from the facile and popular pencil of Hablot K. Browne; while engravings on wood will be given with such articles as may be rendered more intelligible by their aid.

The title of the Magazine-"ST. JAMES's"-is associated with many famous memories of the past. The name "ST. JAMES's" is linked inseparably with the heroic men and women who have made the age renowned. "ST. JAMES'8" is "the Court" of our most estimable and beloved Sovereign, and of a family, rendered even more ilustrious by domestic virtues than by "birth and state, From "St. James's" a pure and benefioent influence extends to every part of the dominions of the Crown-an influence that becomes an example to all rani ! and conditions of society-from the very highest to the very humblest.

Tax St. James's MAGAZINE is, therefore, a competitor for that publie support which is ever accorded to desert: the extent of its interests and the amount of its value will soon be ascertained ;-to those who receive it "on trust," I can but convey the assurance that my utmost efforts shall be put forth to obtain such valuable assistance from writers of the highest eminence in every depart. ment of Literature, Art, and Prnctical Science, as will secure the POPULARITS and PROSPERITY that are hoped for and anticipated.
