The "Hoffman Cover and Binder" is a very useful aid for the convenient handling and preservation of magazines and pamphlets while in use and afterward. It is a well-finished book-cover, so arranged that a magazine can be placed and fastened within it in a moment, so as to form a substantial bound book; then, when the next number arrives, can be taken out and replaced by the new one; or it can be left in Und deposited as a single volume in the library. The magazine is thus kept in perfect order, whether it is intended to be bound with its fellow-numbers or filed singly. Six sizes arc kept in stock, to accommodate the variously shaped publications from "The Popular Science Monthly" to "Harper's Weekly" or the "Illustrated London News," and other sizes will be furnished to order, by Joseph A. Hoffman, 208 Montgomery Street, San Francisco."
"The American Journal of Physiology" is a new monthly periodical, each number of which will consist of sixteen pages, edited and published by D. H. Fernandes, M. D., Indianapolis, Indiana.

"The Modern Stenographic Journal" is a new Phonographic Magazine, published at Buffalo, New York, by George H. Thornton, editor, and Emory P. Close, associate editor. It will keep its readers in the current of what is going on in the stenographic world; will contain a department of instruction, with serial lessons, and a department devoted to the type-writer and calligraph; and will endeavor to popularize "a simple and rapid system of writing"
