"The cry is still 'they come!' "—and so much the better. The other week we spoke of a second series of Crimean photographs, to be seen at Mr. Hogarth's in the Haymarket : now it is a third series, at Mr. Kil- burn's in Regent Street. Like the former, these, the production of Mr. Robertson of Constantinople, are taken after the South side of Sebas- topol fell into the hands of the Allies • the spots selected for representa- tion being in various instances identical, and of course the results all but equally so. Yet there is an individual manner in photography, by which the different practitioners may be recognized, akin to the same thing in art: Mr. Robertson's, for instance, would hardly be mistaken for Mr. Fen- ton's, though both are of a high class. The series numbers fifty-eight; among which the visitor will expect to find, and will find, such subjects as "The Interior of the Redan, "Breach of the Redan, where the great struggle took place," "Interior of the Malakoff," "Part of the Barrack Battery, showing the mantelettes for protecting the Russian gunners," "The Docks and Arsenal of Sebastopol, and so on.

Mr. Kilburn has also placed on view an interesting set of Indian and Cingalese photographs of scenes, architecture, and national character and caetume; some of them coloured with simplicity, and in better taste than Waal Fifty are hanging on the walls, and four hundred remain over aad above.
