Our publishers.

--"Timon," the Richmond correspondent of the Charleston Courier, in noticing life and things amongst us, thus speaks of the enterprise of our enter prising neighbors and publishers. We take pleasure in transcribing the remarks of "Timon," because they are eminently merited and just:

‘ "I have seen to-day, at the store of the publishers, Messrs West & Johnston, of this city, 'Chisholm's Manual of Surgery,' printed in your city by Messrs. Evans & Cogswell. It is a beautiful specimen of typography — a model of artistic taste in book making and a credit to the enterprise of the house which has brought it forth. This, I understand, is the second edition, and the demand for it is very great. It is one of the most useful books yet published in the Southern Confederacy. Messrs. West & Johnston deserve well of the people of the South for their enterprise, patriotism, and liberality. The good which they have so far done is really incalculable, and will, I trust, receive its proper reward.
