The volume for 1863 can be supplied. -If called upon to point out the most useful volume of reference within our knowledge, we would unhesitatingly say the National Almanac, just published. As a compend of statistics, as a register of facts, as a record of events, as an opitome of the condition and progress of the United States and of each particular State, for the last two years, it stands without a peer. When once known, it must become indispensable; and no library, public or private, no counting-house, no public office, can be considered completely furnished without it; and as for the professional man, or the man of affairs, he must find it the most useful auxiliary within his reach at Any price.-N.Y.
