American Metropolitan Magazine- This is the title of a monthly periodical, the lirif number of which has been issued by Mr. Israel Post; No. 259, Broadway, New York. It maVes a,capital beginning; although entering upon a field already somewhat crowded, appears to have enlisted in its service, the right kind of material, to make competition successful. Tho number before us contains a variety of well executed steel and wood engravings, and contributions of high literary merit from the best American authors—some of them not upon the list of any other Magazine. It is to be under the editorial control of William Landon.
