We have to acknowledge receipt from th' 6 publishers, Messrs A. Cleave and Co., Auckland, of she first number of the above magazine, which has been issued under the auspices of the recently formed New Zealand Literary and Historical Association. The views of the promoters are ably expressed in an introductory article by Professor Talbot-Tubbs. Professor Biokerton contributes a well written article on the " Outlook of the Coming Century," j which, however, judging from the conditions now obtaining appears to err on \ the optimistic side. In the space devoted to " Under the Public Eye" we notice portraits of the Earl and Countess of Eanfurly. together with two of Maoris of the old and new i generation in the persons of Patara te 3?uhi, a well» known Waikato chief, and Mr A. T. Ngata, M.A. "Jenkins, Sailor and Steeplechaser : A chat with aH old timer," is from the pen of Mrs Malcolm Ross. "The Australian Commonwealth and Now Zaaland " forms the subject of an article by Gh M. Newton. In the " Opal Cliff "F. Carr describes the sufferings and fate of a party of opal prospectors in tbe Australian desert—which, though entertaining, is distinctly not pleasant reading. There are interesting articles on " University Life in the Middle Ages " by Professor Maclaurin; "The Poetic side of the Maori " by James Cowan j "Education in New Zealand" by Joseph Ormond ; " Art, i>rama, and Music," by W. E. Outhwaite; "Formin Golf," byC. E. S. Gillies ; and " Sports and Pastimes," by Danvere Hamber. Thomas Cottle contributes a readable story, "Her Long-lost Brother." Olive Tilly, Kbron Hale, and M. A. Sinclair are the writers of three'short stories—"A Dre.,m of Hearts," " The Little Mother," and " fiiarinetta " resppc-. tively. There are short poems by J, L. Kelly, David W. M. Burn, and Carrie Tass. The magazine is printed on fairly good paper, but there is a remarkable difference in the merit of the illustrations, some being passably good, while others—notably "A Maori Powhiri," " The Last of the Rangatiras," and " Priest Welcoming Returi in (Warriors " are very iiierior t and would have been better omitted altogether, as they detract from the artistic merit of the magazine. The published price is one shilling.
