MESSRS. HARPER and BROTHERS, of New York, have just issued a new catalogue of their publications. This catalogue comprises 1285 books, or 1686 volumes; 540 of which are original works, and 745 reprints. In the 540 copyright works are included many valuable translations, the principal balance against copyright works being the reprints of novels.

WORKS OF FREDERICK THE GREAT.—The 16th, 17th, and 18th volumes of the complete works of this distinguished sovereign have just been published at Berlin. They are entirely occupied with his correspondence. There are 4000 letters written by him-two-thirds are in French, the other third, chiefly on military operations, are in German, and were addressed to his generals. The whole letters belong to the state archives. The edition of the great Frederick's works, now in course of publication, was undertaken by order of the present King of Prussia, and at his expense.

LORD John RUSSELL announced in the House of Commons his intention to bring forward next session a bill for the erection of a new National Gallery, either in the immediate vicinity of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, or within the Gardens themselves. This announcement was, it is said, received in the House with a general murmur of acquiescence.
