ion, just closed, we had the pleasure of examining a ledger and journal, bound in panel style, beautifully embellished with gilt, and finished in the most exquisite manner. Both volumes were fitted on rollers, skillfully inserted in the boards, to prevent rubbing, and the ruling in each was not only neat, but elegant. These books were gotten up under the direction of Mr. Jos. J. English, foreman for J. W. Randolph, by whom he has been constantly employed for more than twenty years. We also saw, in the same room, a set of blank books, manufactured by West & Johnston, Booksellers, and comparatively new beginners.-- The committee who examined this work pronounced it not only good, but faultless in design and execution. The binding was of the panel order, elaborately ornamented with gold; and the ruling was so beautiful, clear and variegated, that it might well have been taken for lithograph printing. The public will find our young friends prepared to serve them at short notice.
