to the above church, baa recently been cast at the foundry of William Blake in Boston, and has been taken to Newport to be put in place. The bella are in the key of E-natnral, four thorps, and are aa follows, UTEBAKY MATTERS. NEW PUBLICATION "The Opium Habit, a treatise on the habits of opium and its compounds, aloohol, chloral-hydrate, chloroform, bromide of potaa slum and aannohia indlca, including their therapeutical Indications, with suggestions for treatment, has Just been published by A. B. Barnes St New York.

The author. Dr. F. H. Hubbard of Brooklyn, K.

has made a special study of this particular subject for years, and few men in the country are better qualified to treat it in an intelligent manner. The rapid spread of the opium habit in America during the past twenty years Is something alarming, and the beet thought and effort of tba nation nre demanded for its suppression. The form In which the drug ia principally used is sulphate of morphia, a proportion six times stronger than gnm opium, and affecting tha system more rapidly. In 1861 the quantity of opinm Imported into the United Btates was 109,538 pounds. Tha first Importation of morphia oo-enrred in the same year, and consisted of but twelve ounces.

In 1871 the import of opium was 315,121 pounds, and of morphia 237 ounces. In 1880 tha opium import was 533,451 pounds, and 8822 ounces of morphia were received at the port of New York alone. A comparison between 1861 and 1871 shows a fearful Increase in ten years, yet the difference between 1871 and 1880 abowa a still larger Increase In nine years. The revenue statistics unmistakably show that the consumption of opium is rapidly increasing, and that, too, rt a rata far In excess of tbe increase of population. In 1880 this country received 97,000 pounds of opium from Chiua, 326,975 pounds from England, and 92,633 pounds from Turkey in Asia.

In 1876 It was estimated that there were 225,000 opium eaters In this country, at least two-thirds of them belonging to the better classes of society, and the majority of them being women. Today it Is estimated that there are not less than 500,000. Dr. Hubbard not only shows the danger resulting from the habit, but he also shows how it may he oreroome with the least strain upon the victims health or will. Received by Hall Whiting.

1 "A Handbook of Light Gymnastics, by Lucy B. Hunt, Instructor in gymnastics at Smith College, Northampton, has been published by Lee Sc Shepard. It gives practical instructions In free gymnastics, and in exercises with wands, dumb bells; percussion and mutual help exercises, practice with bean hags, marching, with a chapter on dress. It is just snch a hook aa teachers will be glad to have, as it ia simple, yet comprehensive, and email enough to be carried in the pocket. A "Biographical Sketch of Genevieve Ward, the famous actress, written by Mrs.

Zadel Barnes Gustafson, has been brought out by the Osgoods. It is apparent throughout the volume that the author has a very warm appreciation of the merits and accomplishments of the actress. Mias Ward, as many readers know, has had a very, strange and varied experience, and we are told it in full. Miss Ward is well known in this city, and this sketch will be read by friends and admirers with warm interest. "My Lord and Lady, a new novel by Mrs.

Forester, author of "Dolores, has been published by the Lippincotta. It Is a story of an unhappy marriage In English high life, and of the complications which it gave rise to. Mrs. Forester Is deservedly popular as a novelist, and the present story is equal in Interest to any of her preceding ones. Received by Estes St Lauriat.

A new and beantlfnl edition of Thomas Kemplaa "On the Imitation of Christ has been issued by James R. Osgood St Go. The head and tall pieces and Initial letters are the same as in the cosily English edition, the type is clear, and the volume le handsomely bound. A new edition of George Sand's "Indiana has been issued In paper covers by the Petersons. This story, generally considered tha masterpiece of tho author, has been before the reading public for thirty years, and yet holda its place as a popular work of fiction.

Emperor Francis in 1835, which last event concludes the present volume. A Christmas number of Harpers Yonng People will ha published on the 20th of this month.

Mr. Thomas Nast has designed a cover expressly for this number. In which he ingeniously represents a race between Bantu Clans and Mother Goose. Mr. Frank Scock-ton, Mr.

W. O. 8toddard and other favorite writers contribute Christmas stories, and Messrs. Howard Pyle and A. Fredericks contribute Christmas pictures.

Tbe serial story and departments have been omitted in order to make this number complete in itself. Mr. Sergeant Ballantlne, the celebrated English lawyer, has written a volume of personal memoirs, which will he issued before Christmas, and will undoubtedly be the sensation book of the season in London. He was not only mixed up in a variety of romantic cases, but had opportunities of peeps into the Interior life of aristocratic personages which few oould rival. Cardinal Newman writes to the London Atbenicum that he has refused to read the I it oof sheets of his biography about to he pub-ished, easing that this time of me bad not come, though fora biography regards the author I did not doubt that he would do his work conscientiously and Impartially.

It is said that Mr. Leslie Stephen has undertaken to write for the series called English Men of Letters a monograph on Swift, Mr. Morley having been forced by tbe pressure of other engagements to abandon his intention of performing the task himself. The regular edition of 8t. Nicholas in Eng-isnd is now eight thousand copies.

SCI Gold Pons aad Hoi dorr, fnr Christmas rroooats. A full Una kept by WABD A GAY. Stationer. 184 Dovonaura street, Bosteik PENCIL8 In weight the several bella are 2109 pounds; 1716; 1146; 1010; 730; 008; Dt3, 416; Dt 354; 298; total weight, 3347 pounds. The same notes may be produced by 'bells differing somewhat in weight from the above, and to hear any chime to advantage the hearer ahould be at the distance of from a quarter to half a mile.

The several bella of this chime are in excellent relative tune, with great accuracy of their several overtonea or harmonica. Their tones are of far-reaching power, are mellow and of long duration, these several elements being necessary in all good bells. These overtones, not easy of detection in small bells, are plain to the keen ear when coming from those of larger dimensions and weieht these generally producing seven sounds wheif the tongue strikes the bell, in which is inclnded a sixth below the real tone of the bell, and called the hum or drone. It proceeds from the rim, and though not so strong as the other overtones, lasts longer. The firm of William Blake Co.

is the successor of that of Ilenry N. Hooper dissolved in 1868, and originating with Paul Revere in 1820. It has always held the highest repute, and maintained a leading rank among similar enterprises. It is among the oldest bell establishments in the United States. Their bells are made of copper and tin alone, east in moulding cases of iron lined with loam.

Their mountings are simple and durable, and all their work Is tha result of an experience of more than half a century. In 1736 a hell foundry was started in New Haven, by Abell Paombe, and another by a Mr. Hanks, at Mansfield, in the same State, who also cast bronze guns for the Americans at the time of the Revolution. There were hells east about tbe same time by Aaron Hobart, at Abington, and at Stoughton in 1770. Panl Revere of Revolutionary fame caat bella in Boston prior to 1790, but none of these earlier efforts were unconnected with other casting.

The casting of bella of accuracy ia a delicate aa well as most interesting operation, depending upon mathematical rules and perfect mechanical appliances, the success of any foundry depending upon exact following of certain laws. The earlier hells were all imported; those of Quebec, for Catholic churches and convents, being among the first, their use spreading wherever the missionary of that Church carried the gospel. There is one of them now la the museum of Bowdoln College, which belonged to the chapel of Father Hallo, killed by tbe Indians in 1724, at Norridgewock, Me. It may be of interest to state that the bell of the Stone Chapel, of excellent and deep tone, is of English make, its hum, or drone-tone, being G-flat, two ledger lines below the treble, or clef; its next tone is nearly E-flat, on first line; its next A-flst, second space; its next (a little flat), upper line, and then from the upper part of the bell two ledger lines above. It would not be a constituent bell of any chime, but it is a bell of moat splendid resonance and effect.

h. k. o. Joy Street. The Sightless Readers or Whittiers Poems.

Among tbe valuable books recently printed in raised letters at the Perkins Institution, for the use of the blind, was a volume made up of choice selections from Whittiers poems. As soon as this volume was issued it was read by the sightless scholars with great eagerness and delight, and waa made tbe theme of special study by an advanced dan of young ladies. It was the first time in the history of the education of the blind that a clan of these children had free access to the treasures of Whittiers poetical genius, and they were so deeply Impressed with the charming simplicity, the pathetic grace, the Tensive beauty, the Intense realism, the tender parity, and the humane and progressive ideas of his writings, that they decided to express their gratitude to their author by observing his seventy-fourth birthday In a lining manner. Accordingly, on Saturday evening the teachers and officers of the institution, with their Invited guests, assembled in tbe hall of the Howe building. The room waa simply but tastefully decorated with plants, and upon the wall hung a handsomely executed picture of the honored poet, sur-lonnded with evergreen and heavily draped with an American flag.

On the sides of the design were set 1807 and 1881 in gilt figures. At a table sat six young ladies, members of the class, add in front of each was a volume of Whittiers poems. A seventh member of the class. Miss Susan Sheehan, presided over the occasion, and opened the exercises with brief essay on the life and writings of Whittier. Then she called upon her classmates, who read In turns, by feeling over the raised letters, half a dozen of the best poems, with high appreciation and remarkable clearness and refinement.

The Hero, which ie picturesque and vivid description of Dr. Howes achievements, was rendered by Miss Flora McNabb with deep feeling and Impressive pathoe. Mr. Reeves, the principal music teacher of the institution, played on the pianoforte one of Beethovens compositions, in honor of the anniversary of the great master, which fklls on the same day as that of the American poet. At the end of the reading Mr.

Anagnoa announced that Miss Moore, the teacher of the yonng ladies, having written to Mr. Whittier, informing him of the great pleasure and delight which her pnpila experienced in reading his works, reoeived tbe following reply, the reading of which elicited great applause: Duvst Dec. 12, 1881. To Mary C. Moon: 1 ear Friend It gives ms great pleasure to know the' tbs pupils in thy class at tbs Institution for tbe Blind have tha opportunity afforded them to read soma of my writing, and thus hold what I hope will prove a pleasant communion with me.

Very glad I thall be If the pen-pictures of nature and homely country firesides which I have tried to make, are understood and appreciated by those who cannot discern them by natural vision. I shall count It a groat privilege to ass for them, or rather to let tbemaeo through my eyas. It Is the mind after an that really sees, shapes and colors all visions of beanty and sublimity passed be fore tbs Inward and spiritual light of blind Mil-ton and Beethoven I -I have an esteemed friend, Morrison Handy of Kentucky, who is deaf and blind; yet under theae circumstance! be has cultivated his mind to a high degree, and baa written poeme of great hsaaty, and vivid deaerlptlons of scenes which have been witnessed only by the "light within. I thank thee for thy letter, and beg of thee to assure thy students that I am deeply Interested in their welfare and progress, and that my prayer is that thair Inward and spiritual eyas may be-cemo so clear that they can well dispense with the outward and material ones. I am very truly, thy friend, Joan G.
