DISTRESS IN PARIS.We desire to draw the attention of our readers to the following paragraph, which appears in the current number of the (London) Publishers' Circular, and ask them for their assistance in carrying out the relief therein proposed :

" It has been suggested that the Publishers and Booksellers of Great Britain ought to unite in the benevolent project of extending help to the distressed Assistants of Publishers and Booksellers of Paris, upon whom not only the siege of the city itself, but the devastation of so many quarters of France and the wide-spread destitu. tion amongst all classes of their customers, have brought so much bitter distress. Assuming that the Publishers of Paris will welcome this brot rly aid, we gladly respond to the appeal towards the - Paris Publishers' Relief Fand," and with pleasure announce that subscriptions towards the “Paris Publishers' Relief Fund” will be received at the office of the Publishers' Circular, and at the office of the Bookseller, and its receipt acknowledged in their pages. We may add, the more immediate the aid, the greater will be the benefit."

Messrs. Firmin-Didot, Hachette, Plon, and other Publishers in Paris have been requested to see to the distribution of the Food, and relying upon the good feeling and co-operation of the Trade, Mr. Sampson Low, of the Publishers' Circular, and Mr. 7. Whitaker, of the Bookseller, have already taken steps to send a first instalment of relief, consisting of dried and preserved meat, rice, lentils

, coffee, &c., &C.

Donations or subscriptions on behalf of the fund, if addressed to the Editor of the Trade Circular, 25 Bond St., New York, will be remitted to the proper quarters
