The Ladies' Friend. We learn from the November number of this New Magazine of Fashion and Literature.that It has already attained a large, circulation. The aim cf its publishers is to rival the three dollar magazines in the quality of their engravings and contents. Thus it has given daring the present year, in every number, a finely engraved and colored Double Fashion ¦Plate, while its ether uurnerous engravings are of the best quality. The long and brilliant array of the literary contributors to the •Lady's Friend, nearly- all of whom are ladies, is highly creditable to the Magazine, and also to the country, as showing how large and cultivated a class of lady, writers i't possesses. Klariy may wonder how anymagazine can bo got up in so handsome and lavish1 a manner as this is, at the low price of S2.50, saying ' nothing of the reduced rates to clubs.
