Humors of the Trade.

THE largest order ever received by a NewYork house was filed at Hurd & Houghton's the other day. It was from a small Pennsylvania town, and read as follows: HURD & HOUGHTON, N. Y. :

You will please send me the Riverside Press, Cambridge. Yours respectfully,

The publishers are much perplexed because the writer neglected to say whether the Press should be forwarded by mail or express.

OUR "Philadelphia" friend, to whom we have before been indebted, sends us more contributions to the humors of the trade. A lady customer called in about Christmas, and asked meaning the Handy-Volume Shakespeare. Anto see a copy of the Handy-Andy Shakespeare, other customer, of the opposite sex, looking like a well-to-do farmer, bought a number of juvenile books, but some days after returned one of them, saying that he found that they already had a copy at home, and would like something else in exchange. Upon being asked what book he would prefer, he asked if we had a copy of " The Old Ham-Seller's Secret." He was handed "The Old Ma'amselle's Secret," which he said "he supposed must be the book wanted, but the other was what they told him at home." Per contra, we heard lately of a bookseller's clerk, who, being asked if he had Chaucer, politely proffered the customer a paper of the best fine-cut chewing tobacco.

Adopted and Set Forth for Use by the Second General Council of the said Church, held in the City of New-York, May, 1874.

The publisher announces that, after careful revision, the above work has been completed, and is the only authorised version of the Book of Common Prayer of the Reformed Episcopal Church.

The Collects, Epistles, and Gospels are the same as those found in the Protestant Episcopal Prayer-Book, excepting that those in use for Saints' Days have been omitted. The Psalter is the same as that in the book of 1785, repointed to correspond with the service from which it was compiled.

Two different editions have been prepared-an 18mo, printed in clear small pica type, and a 32m0, printed in clear brevier type-and the composition has been so arranged that the matter in either edition appears on the same page-a great desideratum in a book intended to have such wide-spread circulation. All the different editions are printed on the very best super-calendered paper, and bound in the most substantial manner.

A Hymnal of 224 pages, uniform in style with the above, and recommended for present use by the Council, has also been prepared, and an 18mo edition, bound separately, in cloth, can be had for 25 cents.
