Messenger), edited by Stassulevitch, a stately and finely
cultivated man about sixty years old, formerly a
university teacher, now occupied with economical and hygienic
questions, such as the improvement of the river water
in St. Petersburg. His periodical is the organ of correct
liberalism. It has a circulation of 7,000. The two great
authors, now old men, Gontcharóf and Arsénief,
contribute to this magazine, the former at the present time
publishing his life, and the latter a clever, scientific
critic, affable towards the younger generation. It relies
on a circle of men among whom the literary historians
Pypin and Spasovitch are well known. The latter has
already been spoken of. The former, who originally
belonged to Tchernuishevski’s group and passed for a
radical, but escaped accusation, as author of the great
work, “The History of the Slavic Literature,” in which
the pressure laid on by the censor is felt all the way
through, has presented a profound and real representation
of the intellectual struggle for existence, and
literary productions of the different Slavic races.
Unfortunately the most important part, the history of the
literature of Great Russia, is still wanting. The two
eminent advocates and publicists Koni and Utin are
also coadjutors of the Vyestnik Yevropi. The former
is best known as an author by his interesting
treatment of “Dostoyevski as an analyst of crime;” the
other, by the series of articles published in the periodical
under the title “From Bulgaria,” which was forbidden
publication in book form by the censor.

By the side of this great St. Petersburg review stands
Goltzef’s Moscow periodical, Russkaya Mysl (The
Russian Thought), as suggested above, conducted in the
same spirit as Russkiya Vyedomosti, and supported by
the contributors to that daily paper. It has 10,000
