We often get requests to notice catalogues, which, had we space, we should be glad to do. If we had but a local circulation, and only a few score came to our table, we might do it; but few have any idea of the immense number that come to our table. It would not be fair to notice some and not others; but to notice all would be to refer to from one to two hundred a month. Occasionally when we see some items of news which are not likely to appear in regular advertisements, we refer to such catalogues, and this is the only principle which our confined limits allow us in catalogue notices.
