BELGIUM. The firsi printed Newspaper.-It has recently been discovered by E. Gochet of Brussels, from a marginal note in the handwriting of Adrian de But, a Dutch monkish writer of the fifteenth century, that printed papers, conveying newspaper information, were circulated in Europe before the year 1460, and were, without doubt, first printed at Mayence. The first printed newspaper of which any trace can be found was printed in 1455, and gave intelligence of the peace of Karaman with the King of Cyprus, and the conquest of Servia by the Turks, in 1454. It was made known in these words :

“ Czu nuwen meren schribet man vns alsus

Dz in die Turcky der mechtige Charamannus
Der etwan den konig von Cypern hatte gefangen
Deshalb ym dz kongrich must langen
Czins vnd tribut all jar
Solichs habe er en gelediget offenbar
Vnd ist widder den grossen Turken bereit,
Getrulich zu helffen die cristenheit
Darzu schribt man yns vorbas
Wie die grois Turke vs gezogen was

In die Sirphie mit siner stercke.”
The number of works published in Belgium during the past year amounted
to 320; being an increase above the year 1839, of twenty works. 218 were in
French, 92 in Flemish, 6 in Latin, and 4 in the German language.

SWITZERLAND. Isenring, the celebrated painter of St. Gallen, has invented an apparatus upon the principles of the Daguerréotype, by which he is enabled to take portraits in any size and with the eyes open; the latter has been long considered the most difficult point to accomplish.

The University of Zurich has 143 students, and the new Botanical Garden is now completed. A society of arts has been formed by the towns of Bern, Basle and Zurich, and the first exhibition is to take place at Zurich early in the spring.

RUSSIA. The arbitrary conduct pursued by the imperial government of Russia in pro. hibiting the printing of books in Poland in any other than the Russian language has been followed up by a similar course of conduct towards the Jews, who are forbidden by a recent Ukase from printing works in Hebrew, German, Polish or any other language than the Russian in any town or city except Wilna and Kiew. Several thousand persons have been thrown out of employ by this severe edict. In the provinces of Bessarabia, the Crimea, and the country on each side of the Caucasus, there are upwards of two millions of the inhabitants professing the Jewish religion. They have 1007 parishes or congregations, 586 synagogues, and 2,377 schools for children professing the Mosaic faith. In these districts 60 printing establishments have been stopped, and the families depending thereon for support left to starve; the works emanating from these establishments were all printed in German or Hebrew. This Ukase does not extend to the Karaer, a Jewish sect, who reject the doctrines of the Talmud, and who have printing establishments at Dschufutkale and Kosloff, from whence several interesting works have issued by the assistance of Sinia Bobowitsch.

The Russian Chinese scholar, Hyakinth (Bichurir), has published an Encyclopædia, under the title of “ China and its Inhabitants.”

MISCELLANEOUS.

The late Frank Hall Standish.The entire stock of this well-known author's works, including his library and valuable collection of paintings, will be rem moved to Paris, as soon as his Majesty Louis Philip, to whom they have been devised by will, shall have determined upon where they are to be placed. The paintings, including some of the finest Murillo's, will, it is expected, grace the walls of the Louvre. Previous to his death, Mr. Standish had nearly completed writing the Life of Cardinal Ximenez: this work will, no doubt, be preserved, with other interesting documents left at his residence in Seville, and which, from his long residence in Spain, and his great antiquarian research, will be found to be replete with interest and information. It is to be hoped these relics will fall into the hands of his half-brother, Sir Hugh Purves Hume Campbell.

The establishment of a German Newspaper in London, entitled Die Deutsche Presse, is one of the many proofs of the increasing taste for the acquirement of the German language; indeed, the acquisition of this language has become a sine qua non in all branches of polite education. The Court, it is expected, will patronise this effort. The newspaper will be printed by H. Passargé, who has recently reprinted some of the best and most popular of the German classics, including Goethe's Egmont, Goetz von Berlichingen, Hermann and Dorothea ; and Schiller's Don Carlos, Jungfrau von Orleans, and Dreiszigjähriger Krieg

Mr. Birch, the translator of the First Part of Goethe's Faust, which has been so favourably received, has nearly completed his translation of the Second Part. Nos. 1 and 2 of this portion of the work have already been published, and have commanded a greater degree of public attention than the First Part, owing to the number of translations of the First Part that have appeared. Both parts of the work are embellished with beautiful steel engravings, after M. Retzsch, and will form the most complete translation that has hitherto appeared.

With the next No. of this Review we shall present our readers with the contents of the first fifty numbers of the Foreign Quarterly Review, which, we have no doubt, will prove highly useful for reference.

MADAGASCAR.- A printing press has been introduced at Tananarivo, the capital of Madagascar, by the missionaries, who are actively engaged in printing a translation of the Bible into the Malagassee language. Four of the natives are sufficiently versed in the business to act as compositors, while the press-work is executed by two more, and several others aid in correcting the press.

His Royal Highness Prince Albert has given 501. to the London Library, and has promised a donation of German books.
