What is Said of Us.
We have before us No. 2 of the NATIONAL FIREMAN’S JOURNAL, published in New York by Everett, Thomson & Co. It is in quarto form. with sixteen pages of interesting reading matter. It has an open field, and with a continuance of the enterprise and spirit exhibited will meet with | success. There has been going on for some time a wholesome reformation in fire organization. A better class of men have taken positions in the companies’ ranks, and the officers are more carefully selected than formerly, The result is city governments are more liberal in granting appropriations for fire purposes, and the causes of fires and controlling them when under way, are being studied more closely than at any previous period. In the discussion of these and all subjects connected with conflagrations, the FIREMAN’S JOURNAL is a most convenient medium. The paper is published at $2 per annum, a price sufficiently low to induce a large subscription list.—Lockport Daily Union.

The NATIONAL FIREMAN’S JOURNAL is the name of a new weekly paper, the first number of which was issued on the 17th ult., from 56 Park Place, New York. The editors announce that they will devote the columns of their journal to matters of special interest to Firemen throughout the country, and if the first number may be regarded as a fair sample of what is to follow, the enterprise deserves to succeed. The paper is well written, well edited, and well printed. It solicits correspondence from all parts of the country, and in its initial number contains several letters from different points.
The NATIONAL FIREMAN’S JOURNAL has made its appearance. It is published, as per announcement, by Messrs. Everett, Thomson & Co., 56 Park Place, New York, and is edited with excellent taste and judgment. Its contents are varied and interesting, and it will prove welcome and acceptable to that class in every community to whom property owners cannot be too grateful for the unselfish pertinacity with which they labor for the protection of both life and property. If conscientious effort will win success, the JOURNAL will undoubtedly secure it.— Underwriter, Baltimore, Aid.
