Tbb First or tbb Season. We notice
in front of tbe Petroleum Exchange Res
taurant to-day, some of tbe finest specimens
of venison tbatjwe bave ever seen. What
w saw is not only a " specimen," but in
cludes a sufficiency for a multitude of peo
pie, all of whom may leave thejr orders,
and bave as fine a piece of venison steak set
before them as It wai ever their good for
tune to taste of, savored as Is every dish
gotten up at this place, with every ac

beautiful. Messrs. Soutberland Jk Taylor

YoOno Men's Fasbioxb. Tbe New York
correspondent of tbe Philadelphia Tele
graph, writes: Some sweet fashions for
young men are out. One of these Is the
low-necked shirt, so low, indeed, that the
shoulder blades are all but visible, and the
Adam's apple is fully revealed, nestling in
virgin purity amid a nook of linen. The
masculine throat baa been too long con
cealed, and, among expressions oi feminine
admiration, we may expect this autumn
to bear in addition to "What handsome
teeth Mr. So-and-so baa got," tbe corres
ponding remark, "Yes, my dear, and what
a dalioious neck!" Shirt fronts, too, are
elaborately embroidered, and lined with
rose colored silk. A jeweler's masculine
bracelets, inscribed with memorial names
and dates, are displayed, and even hand
kerchief fings for lull dress occasions. Add
to these tbe Fra Diavolo bat, with pea
cock's plume, ebecked vest patterns of all
possible shades in combination, and pat
terns for trousers, consisting of small
squares rainbow in hue, underlying larger
ones. Add to these again buttons of pearl,
amethyst, and carbuncle, and it will easily
be understood that tbe male belle is just as
"finnibky" as the female one about per
sonal adornment. I say nothing of mascu
line powders and cosmetics, because this is
a tbeine or which nothing is supposed to be
known; but 1 simply put tbe question
whether tbe creature who sports Bracelets,
and wears a low-necked shirt for the pur
pose of displnytng a snowy bo , that is
throat, is not equally susceptible to tbe
blandishments dormant in rouge vtntgrt and
oxide of bismuth.
New Billiard Hall. Messrs. Brad-
street & Sherwood, pioprletors of tbe Roch

tables In tbe room formerly occupied by A.

and weighs eleven tons. Tbe column, ris

ornaments of various designs. It is of
American-Italian marble, and has a beauty
of proportion and graduation of shades wbicb
we bave never seen surpassed. Tbe snmrait
is surmounted with marble, foliated in tbe
fo.m of a cross. Tbe monument is 35 feet
blab, and stands near that of the late Gov
ernor Hunt. Tbe plot contains 6.C0O feet,
superficial measure, with handsome grading
and warns of pleasant curve. At eacn oi
tbe four corners are hewn stone posts bear
ing tbe name of "Hodge," tbe man whose
enterprise and wealth caused tbe erection of
mis appropriate family monument. rno en
