The following notices of the KNICKERBOCKER are from the American and English press, and from American and British writers of distinction,

The first number of the Twenty-Seventh Volume of this venerable and widely popular periodical appears upon entirely new and beautiful type, in all its departments; and in its rich and diversified contents, continues to vindicate its reputation as the most agreeable and entertaining Magazine pube lished in the United States. When we first started the old 'New-Yorker,' our friend CLARK bad preceded us as Editor of the KNICKERBOCKER about a twelvemonth; it has now reached an age greatly beyond that of any American Mootbly; a fact which literally speaks volumes' in praise of the manner in which the work has been conducted. No number of the K. bas ever been issued under:CLARK's supervision that did not bear indubitable evidence of editorial care, aud aoxious thought and well-directed labor epstamped upon its pages. We have known no montbly, of this country or Europe, so thoroughly edited in the strictest sense of the term. With a corps of contributors embracing the most eminent writers of the country, with not a few from the otber side of the water, it has been able to present articles of a high order of merit, and in rich variety while, as if emulous of the contributed portions, the editorial department has regularly increased in variety and abundance.'- New-York Daily Tribune.

"Nothing is more remarkable than the unfailing promptitude of this old Monthly, except perhaps its constant and constantly increasing excellence. Mathematicians tell us of certain curves called asymptotes, whose peculiarity is always to approach each other, and yet, even when infinitely er. tended, never to intersect. The KNICKERBOCKER, which has reached an age for a Magazine auch greater than a hundred years for a man, and only to be attained by a more marvellous mirac e, nas perpetually approached the highest possible point of interest and excellence ; and yet it seems to have an excelsior, for each number seerns better than that which went before. How it is done our friend CLARK may understand - but it is a sealed mystery to us. There is no publicatips in the United States that has so attractive or popular a feature as the Editor's Table of the KNICKERBOCKER.' - Nero-York Courier and Enquirer.
