Mr. Ackermann (Regent Street) sends us a packet of the

Christmas Cards of Messrs. Prang, of Boston, Massachusetts, which contain very carefully executed figures or groups of figures, birds or groups of birds, landscapes, Scc., in colours. They hardly please us as much as some of the same publisher's previous cards sent to us in former years ; for they are rather formal, and sometimes a little artificial in effect. They are, however, very elaborate, large in size, and of very good workmanship.
