To our READERS.- We have, for this month, substituted for our customary portrait 16 pages of additional matter—making 96 pages of original articles. We have also added a new feature to the general character of the contents, viz., a light synopsis, under the head of “Gossip," of the matters of social interest that occur during the month. No pains will be spared to render this department light and attractive.
