their profits were as varying aa their punctuality. By degrees the business assumed shape, the newspaperman found it his interest to maintain a locus standi in the establishment, and the establishment in its turn discerned a substantial means of helping the poor or the deserving amongst its servants. A cripple maimed in the Company's service, or a married servant of a director or secretary, superseded the first batch of stragglers, and assumed a business for which he had no previous qualification. The responsibility, in truth, was not very great at starting. Railway travelling, at the time referred to, occupied but a very small portion of a man's time. The longest line reached only thirty miles, and no traveller required anything more solid than his newspaper for his hour's steaming. But as the iron lengthened, and as cities remote from each other were Drought closer, the time spent in the Railway carriage extended, travellers multiplied, and the newspaper ceased to be sufficient for tho journey. At this period reading matter for tho Rail sensibly increased,—the tide of cheap literature set in. French novels,—not unfortunately, of questionable character,—were introduced by the newsman, simply because he could buy them at one third less than any other publication selling at the samo prica. The public purchased the wares they saw before them, and very soon the ingenious caterers for railway readers flattered themselves that there was a general demand amongst all classes for the peculiar style of literature upon which it had been their good fortune to hit. The more eminent booksellers and publishers stood aloof, whilst others, less scrupulous, finding a market open and ready made to their hands, were but too eager to supply it. It was then that the Parlour Library was set on foot j immense numbers of this work were sold to travellers, and every addition to the stock was positively made on the assumption that persons of tho better class, who constitute the larger portion of railway readers, lose their accustomed taste the moment they enter the station and present themselves to the railway librarian.

"When it became evident that the vendors of books and papers were deriving large sums of money from their business, tho directors of the several companies resolved to make a charge for permission to carry it on; and tenders were duly advertised for, regard being had to tho amount offered, and by no means to the mode in which it was proposed to prosecute the work. In some cases £200, and in others as much as £600 per annum, have been deemed a fair rental for the book-stall at a London terminus. At one of the most important stations in the metropolis, a bookseller, who at one timo professed himself unable to contribute £60 by way of rent to a benefit society established for the servants of the company, offered, two years afterwards, £600, when the privilege was put up to public auction. The extent to which literary trash has been sold at these railway book-shops may bo conceived, when it is stated that a large profit has still remained for the bookseller, after paying the very large rent-charge to the Company.

"The proprietor of tho North Western book-stalls, of whom honourable mention is made in the essay, and whose praiseworthy endeavour to improve the literary tastes of the people cannot fail of imitation now that tho attention of railway proprietaries is directly called to the interesting subject, pays, it is reported, a more than ordinarily heavy yearly rental for his right of entrance. Not a worthless volume is sold throughout the line, and as yet he has had no occasion to repent his bargain. He found tho worst possible appetite awaiting him; ho sacrificed much in improving its quality; and tho demand for wholesome food has already surpassed his most sanguino expectations.

"Some striking points of detail appear in the 'Times' narrative. Many more might be added. As far as the North Western Rail is concerned, we believe it has been found that the average sales of newspapers and books vary very slightly indeed, and in singularly exact proportion to the increase or decrease of the traffic. Of newspapers, the 'Times' is much more generally purchased than any other; in the proportion certainly of ten to one. Of weekly publications ' Punch' is the most popular, next the 'Illustrated News.' Every third person (we speak of first and second class passengers) buys a copy of the 'Times,' and every traveller, taking tho bulk, spends something at the stall before he deposits himself in the carriage.

"It only remains to add, that tho Great Northern Railway has judiciously followed in the clear track marked out by the North Western; and that, whilst these pnges are passing through tho press, the South Western Company advertise for tenders to supply their lines of railway with books and newspapers. The object of the present re-publication will be fully answered the moment these recorded instances shall cease to be quoted as remarkable and solitary indications of a change which the interests of humanity, civilisation, and religion, require to be immediate and universal."

Literary Piracy.—Tho intelligence on the grave question of literary piracy is far from satisfactory. The negotiations opened by the French Government with Prussia, Saxony, and Hanover have failed. The German Cabinets, after consulting the booksellers, have answered, that the piracies of German works in France are so trifling, that it is not worth while losing the profit of the piracies of French works in Germany, to put an end to it . . . The Saxon Government, however, recommended the French negotiators to employ all their efforts, first of all, to destroy piracy in Belgium: saying, that, as Ion? as it existed there, it would not be much use to put it down m Germany, as the Belgians would be sure to inundate the country more than ever with their pirated editions. The Hanoverian minister frankly admitted that he did not think there was any likelihood that his own, or any other German government, would be brought to consent to the anniliilation of a system which is profitable to so many of their subjects: but he had the good-nature to recommend the French to apply to the Germanic Diet at Frankfort, whose authority supersedes that of individual cabinets in matters affecting, as this does, the whole country.—From Italy, also, the news is not cheering. The negotiations -with Tuscany which at one time were very promising, have gone off. Naples and Rome are in too agitated '"■' attend to them; and the other Italian Governments, with the exception of Sardinia, display
