LITERATURE OF THE RAIL.-The importance of the essay lately put forth by the "Times" newspaper has been universally acknowledged, and the influence the improved supply of literature to the various railway stations must have upon the social condition of the inhabitants of the length and breadth of the land,―(the abandonment, we would hope, of the reading of the miscalled cheap literature, which for many years has been the banc of our free press, and which has tended so greatly to demoralise the mass of our manufacturing districts, together with the means thus introduced for the ready supply of the best publications throughout the country-a point that cannot escape the attention of the provincial booksellers,-) has induced us to give insertion to the following Preface to Mr. Murray's republication of the essay from the "Times."

"No apology is necessary to accompany the republication of the following essay. It refers to the existence of a great and wide-spread evil, and in no place could it originally have appeared more appropriately, and with a better chance of accomplishing the national reform at which it aims, than in the columns of the leading journal of Europe.

"It in no way detracts from the intelligence and sagacity which characterise the extraordinary and ceaseless labours of the conductors of the Times, that the evil in question has for some few years past been painfully visible to the public eye, and that sadly inefficient book-stalls have been known to disgrace the majority of railway stations both in town and country. It is sufficient, that a fact patent to all has, until now, been publicly adverted to, and condemned by none; and it is at least due to the sacred cause which The Newspaper attempted to vindicate by its necessarily ephemeral protest, to secure a more permanent, if not a wider place for wise suggestions far too valuable to be put forth to-day, to be quite lost sight of on the morrow.

"The importance of the subject discussed cannot be overrated. Railway literature has, undoubtedly, acquired a significance which it would be worse than idle to overlook. Millions of readers have been created under a new system of travelling which places within reach of the wayfarer the moment he starts upon his journey, facilities unknown to the traveller of former days, and certainly advantages hitherto supposed to demand perfect repose, and the tranquillity of home and the fireside. Men read with avidity in the railway carriage, and it must surely be worth while to consider whether the matter offered them at the stations for perusal is conducive to intellectual improvement, or utterly deleterious in its quality and tendency. A moment's reflection is sufficient to convince us that if there is to be a continual pouring out of worthless literature through all the mighty channels that have opened to receive the food, no greater blow can be inflicted upon the cause of education, and no greater hindrance can be placed in the way of those endeavours at intellectual, moral, and social improvement, that so emphatically mark the practical and progressive age in which we live. Authors and publishers are both deeply interested in the North Western movement; and are bound to do their utmost in extending it: when readers accumulate, and the desire for information is loudly proclaimed, it depends, from that moment, upon the combined efforts of the two classes, whether a stride forwards is to be made in the paths of civilization and virtue, or whether the ignoble passions of men are to receive a new impulse at the expense of the highest faculties of their nature; whether, in truth, the epoch is to shine as a bright spot for ever in the human career, or be stamped with the melancholy and fatal sign of mental retrogression. In the case before us we will not suffer ourselves to doubt as to the alternative.

"The gradual rise of the Railway book trade is a singular feature of our marvellous Railway era. In the first instance, when the scope and capabilities of the Rail had yet to be ascertained, the privilege of selling books, newspapers, &c. at the several stations, was freely granted to any that might think proper to claim it. Vendors came and went when and how they chose, their trade was of the humblest, and

their profits were as varying as their punctuality. By degrees the business assumed shape, the newspaper man found it his interest to maintain a locus standi in the establishment, and the establishment in its turn discerned a substantial means of helping the poor or the deserving amongst its servants. A cripple maimed in the Company's service, or a married servant of a director or secretary, superseded the first batch of stragglers, and assumed a business for which he had no previous qualification. The responsibility, in truth, was not very great at starting. Railway travelling, at the time referred to, occupied but a very small portion of a man's time. The longest line reached only thirty miles, and no traveller required any. thing more solid than his newspaper for his hour's steaming. But as the iron lengthened, and as cities remote from each other were brought closer, the time spent in the Railway carriage extended, travellers multiplied, and the newspaper ceased to be sufficient for the journey. At this period reading matter for the Rail sensibly increased,-the tide of cheap literature set in. French novels,-not unfortunately, of questionable character,—were introduced by the newsman, simply because he could buy them at one third less than any other publication selling at the same price. The public purchased the wares they saw before them, and very soon the ingenious caterers for railway readers flattered themselves that there was a general demand amongst all classes for the peculiar style of literature upon which it had been their good fortune to hit. The more eminent booksellers and publishers stood aloof, whilst others, less scrupulous, finding a market open and ready made to their hands, were but too eager to supply it. It was then that the Parlour Library was set on foot; immense numbers of this work were sold to travellers, and every addition to the stock was positively made on the assumption that persons of the better class, who constitute the larger portion of railway readers, lose their accustomed taste the moment they enter the station and present themselves to the railway librarian.

"When it became evident that the vendors of books and papers were deriving large sums of money from their business, the directors of the several companies resolved to make a charge for permission to carry it on; and tenders were duly advertised for, regard being had to the amount offered, and by no means to the mode in which it was proposed to prosecute the work. In some cases £200, and in others as much as £600 per annum, have been deemed a fair rental for the book-stall at a London terminus. At one of the most important stations in the metropolis, a bookseller, who at one time professed himself unable to contribute £60 by way of rent to a benefit society established for the servants of the company, offered, two years afterwards, £600, when the privilege was put up to public auction. The extent to which literary trash has been sold at these railway book-shops may be conceived, when it is stated that a large profit has still remained for the bookseller, after paying the very large rent-charge to the Company.

"The proprietor of the North Western book-stalls, of whom honourable mention is made in the essay, and whose praiseworthy endeavour to improve the literary tastes of the people cannot fail of imitation now that the attention of railway proprietaries is directly called to the interesting subject, pays, it is reported, a more than ordinarily heavy yearly rental for his right of entrance. Not a worthless volume is sold throughout the line, and as yet he has had no occasion to repent his bargain. He found the worst possible appetite awaiting him; he sacrificed much in improving its quality; and the demand for wholesome food has already surpassed his most sanguine expectations.

"Some striking points of detail appear in the Times' narrative. Many more might be added. As far as the North Western Rail is concerned, we believe it has been found that the average sales of news. papers and books vary very slightly indeed, and in singularly exact proportion to the increase or decrease of the traffic. Of newspapers, the Times' is much more generally purchased than any other; in the proportion certainly of ten to one. Of weekly publications Punch' is the most popular, next the 'Illus trated News.' Every third person (we speak of first and second class passengers) buys a copy of the 'Times,' and every traveller, taking the bulk, spends something at the stall before he deposits himself in the carriage.

"It only remains to add, that the Great Northern Railway has judiciously followed in the clear track marked out by the North Western; and that, whilst these pages are passing through the press, the South Western Company advertise for tenders to supply their lines of railway with books and newspapers. The object of the present re-publication will be fully answered the moment these recorded instances shall cease to be quoted as remarkable and solitary indications of a change which the interests of humanity, civilisa tion, and religion, require to be immediate and universal."


LITERARY PIRACY.-The intelligence on the grave question of literary piracy is far from satisfactory. The negotiations opened by the French Government with Prussia, Saxony, and Hanover have failed. The German Cabinets, after consulting the booksellers, have answered, that the piracies of German works in France are so trifling, that it is not worth while losing the profit of the piracies of French works in Germany, to put an end to it... The Saxon Government, however, recommended the French negotiators to employ all their efforts, first of all, to destroy piracy in Belgium: saying, that, as long as it existed there, it would not be much use to put it down in Germany, as the Belgians would be sure to inundate the country more than ever with their pirated editions. The Hanoverian minister frankly admitted that he did not think there was any likelihood that his own, or any other German government, would be brought to consent to the annihilation of a system which is profitable to so many of their subjects: but he had the good-nature to recommend the French to apply to the Germanic Diet at Frankfort, whose authority supersedes that of individual cabinets in matters affecting, as this does, the whole country.-From Italy, also, the news is not cheering, The negotiations with Tuscany which at one time were very promising, have gone off. Naples and Rome are in too agitated to attend to them; and the other Italian Governments, with the exception of Sardinia, display chilpable indifference. Correspondent of the Literary Gazette.
