The British Workman. Monthly. S. W. Partridge, Paternoster Row. The February number, which we have received, devotes its front page to a magnificent engraving of a medallion portrait of the late Prince Albert. We are glad to see the high style of art which is diffused by this paper, but we should be better pleased to see the text more manly, and fit to make a man of the British workman.

The Children's Friend is another publication from the same publishers. It is very nicely got up, and does them credit.

King Labour's Song-look. By J. B. Leng. Farrah, Holywell-strcet. Here we have a working man setting himself the task of writing one hundred songs dedicated to the cause of labour; and the effort, judging from the six parts before us, is one which reflects credit upon the author. As of men, so of books, their merits are not indicated by the titles they may bear, and we regret our limited space will not allow us to make quotations from some of these truly ennobling compositions. Their manly sentiment, healthy recognition of labour, and original fulness, recommend them for becoming household chaunts. Mr. Leno's style is generally good, and many of his songs speak very forcibly

Of manners primitive, and that good old time,

Which I have seen, when discipline prevail'd.

The Working Man: What is he f By William Ward, Editor of the " Cardiff

Ma this is a well written pamphlet of sixteen pages, and the working man spoken of " is he who labours at a trade, and thereby contributes much to commercial wealth and greatness." Although this definition may appear to have a limited speciality, the writer's views are taken from an elevated stand-point, and his pleadings to and for the class to whom he addresses himself bespeak a thorough acquaintance with their habits, wants, tastes, and aspirations. The pamphlet deserves a wide circulation, and we hope at some future time to transfer (by permission) a portion of its contents to our columns.

Books received, to which we shall refer in our next.—" Andi Alter Partem; or, Letters to his Constituents." By Lieut.-General Perronet Thompson. "Pictures of Controversy." By J. C. Farn.

4.—We have secured the Co-operation of some first-rate correspondents on the other side of the Atlantic, be that we shall be able to report the progress of the Free Labour v. Slavery movement which is going on in the States.

HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT AND PILLS.—Comfort and Consolation, — The weak-chested and all susceptible of colds will feel comforted by the knowledge that the lungs may be relieved of all congestion, irritation, and inflammation, by having Holloway's Ointment well rubbed twice a day upon the back and breast. After the first rubbing with the unguent, it is startling to see how easy the respiration becomes, and how the circulation is calmed. The Ointment thus used, aided by the Pills, cures all chest complaints, no matter whether they be recent or chronie. Nor are Holloway's Ointment and Pills less useful in diphtheria, scarlatina, measles, chicken-pox, and other diseases ever present in our nurseries, and raging everywhere during this changeable wintry weather.

HE Delegates representing the various branches of the Co-operative Movement in and about London, acting in conjunction with the Committee of the Working Man, have held their regular weekly sittings at our office during the past month; during which they have received Messrs. Hooson and Greenwood, the Delegates from Eochdale, and discussed the modus operandi best calculated to promote the passing of Mr. Stanley's Bill, and various other matters, which, if adopted, and we sincerely trust they will be, will most materially affect the wellbeing of Co-operation in the metropolis. A permanent committee has been formed, with Mr. B. Blitten, of the "West-end Pioneers," as its Secretary, pro term; and already "a new life unto righteousness " seems to be infused amongst London Co-operators. Our efforts, we feel confident, will not have been made in vain, nor our aims misapprehended, when we next report progress, we shall have to announce that the Co-operative mind of London has been welded together and become a solidarity. A month ago, and Co-operation for good, was fragmentary —isolated—straggling—unknown to itself. Croydon, Bow, Camden Town, Ealing, Hanwell, Twickenham, Richmond' s, St. James's, Notting-hill, The British, The West-end Pioneers, The West London Trading Company, the Great Northern, Spitalfields, and various other societies, have been drawn together into one focus, and by
