f ourth instant, apel sixty years.
The Burlingame mi;aion has commenced its
deliberations, and, FO far, mattera have been
favorably discussed. Tho recent caso of ria.
lenee by a British man-of-w^r in Chinese va
tcrs came up for investigation. Mr. Burlin?
game held that such vessels should only ba
used to protect ?lfe and proper! y when imme?
diately exposed to danser, but that otherwiso
the subject became properly a matter of diplo?
matic reference to tho Embassador at Pekin
before the act was committed that might lead
to war. It is thought the English Govern?
ment will regard the matter in this light.
The Times publishes a very able letter from
"Mr. Dilke, BOU of tho cniinent.j?urnalist, de?

ted by the British authorities atYanichow.
Mr. Dilke thinks that a repetition of such acts
would be more dangerous to the psaco between
Great Britain and the United States than the

writer, and pronounces the outrage a violation
of tue treaties ia existonce, and.justly off ensive
' to the Chinese Government.
The Oriental question absorbs attention.
That a conference will bo held is not absolute?
ly certain, and, if held, sinister results, predi?
cated upon similar attempts at r?conciliation,
are foretold. The Sublimo Porte declined to
yield bis independence, or co make sale of
Crete, or to transfer that -island to Egypt, or to
any of the necessary bases for compromise.
Lord ClareHdon, as was to be expected, ad?
heres co the old policy cf England in regard
to Turkey. .
Napoleon and the Emperor of Austria are
undecided in their views, while it is thought
Prussia leans towards those of Russia.
It is certain that tho Greeks count little ou
direct aid from Russia, but much on insurrec?
tion by their own countrymen in Turkey. The
Cretans seem quiet and indifferent. A mani
f esto from Garibaldi tells them that the procla?
mation of Spain as a republic will b: the
Catchword for a new movement on Rome, and
exhorts them to be in rcadinoss for the event.
The Times has another long editorial article
on the subject of the Alabama claims, lt cays
tho tho people of both England and America
ar uneasy in regard to the relations whieb are
to exist in future between tho two nations.
This uneasiness arises from an ignorance of
the tone ef the negotiations now pondiag ou
the Alabama question. Tho Timas believes
that Secretary Seward himself obstructs thc
settlement, but that the question will be
nally and amicably adjusted under the intoni?
ng a dm i ei s trat ian of President Grant. It
hinks that Bevordy Johnson is not likely to bc
removed by the uext administration, bot will
be permitted to remain and complete the rrork
already begun. If Mr. Seward seeks to delay
the settlement of this important question, he
should be removed; but the basis of the proto?
col already agreed upon by Lord Stanley and
Hr. Johnson must remain fixed, and will,
sooner or later, comm? nd the consent of both

Tho atrocious legislation of Congress ia be?

conferring upon the "General of tho armies of
the United States" military authority para?
mount to that exercised by tho constitutional
Executive-tho "TeDure-of-OiBcc Act" which,
in effect, clothes tho SoDate with tho appoint?
ing power-the act making Congress an unin?
terrupted and perpetual body-and sundry
others of like character, are at last round to bo
-so many siumblrng blocks in tho Radical path,
threatening party disruption. All these mea?
sures were strenuously opposed by the Conser?
vatives in Congress upou general principles.
It cannot have beon iorgotten. also, that tbc
Radical leaders protested to favor them for
reasons of general application. They conten?
ded in debate that such guards were essential,
under any and all circumstances, to tho preven?
tion of Executive aggression, aud to keep tho
one-mau power within constitutional limits.
The very few Conservativo members iu either
House eon have but little influence either way
in regard to these laws, and I now learn that
they aro nearly, if not quito, unanimous in tho
opinion that they ought to tako no part what?
ever in then- repeal at thia juncture. If, they
argue, there was ever a time, or if there ever
could bo a time, when such restraining statutes
could work beneficially to thc public, the pres?
ent is that preciso moment. The country is in
a fearful state of demoralization, and thc class
of mon from among whom Treasury agents aro

verest scrutiny the times will admit of. Un?
doubtedly under the present system tbey will
undergo a moro thorough sifting than <"f tho
"Tenuro-of-Office" act should bo lcpcaled.
It is knewu well enough herc that tho
"coming mau" desires abivo all things to have
his limbs uulhon^ed. He even threatens a
"called" sofsion if tho law convening Congress
on the fourth of March is repealed and thc
"Tenture-of-Offico" act shall remain on tho
statute book. If Conserv?t ive BUgnhm^ noni a
but see their way cloar-if they could become
convinced that "tho antecedents and present
pecuniary 6tatus of those designed hereafter
to finger Uuclo Sam's money would bo
thoroughly snanned-if Grant, iu short, would
show his strong suite-they might go tho
length (no abhorrent are all tho laws) to help
him out af this scrape. .But this ho will not
do. He is as tight, even to hi? most intimate
friends, as a clam shell upon those points.
He must consequently bo left to paddle h is
own canoe !
I have very good authority for sayi?g that

the officers o?Aho army in tins city to call on
the President in a body, with the senior officer
in command hero at tho head. General Grant
is not only at the head of tho army, but is tho
sotior cfficoi in ccmuand hero, his headquart?
ers being at Washington, and much curiosity
has been munitested as to thc course he will
pursue on next .Friday. It is known that he
and Mr. Johtsou have never Bpokeu since the
famous correspondence which grew out of
General Grant's Surrender of thc war office to
Mr. Stanton, and thc wonder is whether Geno
ral Grant would make any advances towards re?
conciliation, although many contend that the
mere observance ot tho official e tiquette which
always prevails o', tho occasion-would involve
no necessity of farther intercourse with the
President, * It seems, however, that General
Grant considers a meeting bct.vcen bim aud

bs awkward, for it is learned to-night that he
does not intend to go to tho Whit? House un?

from persons who participated iu the rebellion.
Of course, t-& compensatory lor this magna?

in somo instances impartial suffrage amend?
ment lo the constitution, is expected.
The children of tho President's family have j

next, at six o'clock. From the carly hour
named, and tho fact that tho invitations are
scut cut in the name of "children" to ' chil?

juveniles pre-eminently an opportunity to en?
joy themselves, without restraint, ia dancing
and merry-making iu the parlors of thc Execu?
tive mansion. The cast room will bc placed
entirely and exclusively at the disposal of thc
little folks. Tho fact that vrritteu invitations
have been issued strips tho par ty o? anything
like* the character of a reception by thc ladies
or a levee of the P:csid<mf. Notwithstand?
ing th? evident intention to mako it an ex?
clusively juvenile party, "children af larg?

vitations to attend, and some amusing
if not disgusting accounts could bo told of the

[FROM ou?t rimas COBBESPONDENT.]
NEW YOBK. December 23, 18?3.-Thc wo
man's-club idea hag become an establish?
ed fact; it has met a want, and is fast be?
coming tho fashion. Half a dozen have been
orr.re about being established in American
cities, and a programme for one, following suit
to New York, has just been announced in
Everybody has of course their own idea of
what a "woman's club" is or ought to be. Men
cannot get ovjr ihe old uotion that if womon
j and children aro let a,onc, they will sink back
into c, state of total depravity at once-forget?
ting that, when such a result dous occur, it is
always through some man, and that they may
possibly bo less likely to reach such a coudition
alone than if they wore helped.
Bo thai as it may, a woman's club is felt to
bc somewhat dangerous. What do they talk
about when they are shut in cosily, all alone ?
it is asked; and. if they presumo to lunch,
good gracious! what cfo they have to cat?
"What do they do at Sorosis?" asked oje New
York lady confidentially of another, recently.
"Why, nothing," replied the other, con?
temptuously, "only meot and eat dinner.''
"Dear me," said the first, "how nice!" One,
without knowing auything of tho truth' or
falsity of her etatoment, intended to say the
severest thing she could; thc other, with tho
memory of her lonely "cold mutton" and
"stew" days at homo, was struck with the won
deiful jollity of th.6 lunch idea, and wished to
to become a Sorosian immediately.
But it is gentlomcn who ara most anxious
to have a finger in the pie, and who aro eter?
nally suggesting that women's clubs should
do this, that or thc other-thc central point
being, that their masculino wisdom is neces?
sary to tho proper direction of women's con?
ferences, lt is of no uso to tell them that wo?
men ?lo not see it in that light; that with thoir
superior knowledge and habits cf authority,
they would at oucc assume tho position of
dictators; that it is time for women to edu?
cate themselves to business, to self-reliance
aud independent action. Thu last is precisely
what men do not wish that women should bo
educated to, and they praise the Boston wo?
men tor admitting men to their couueils, and
for having mon to lecture thom m tho way they
should go. Well, for our part, wo think that
menhavo boon lecturiuer women long enough.
It has been a popular delusion that women did
tho domestic lecturing, and scolding, but wc
doubt it, Mrs. Caudle to tho contrary notwith?
standing. No man ever stauds still to lear
his wife scold or lecture; ho would talco his
bat and his boots, if he happened to bo in slip?
pers, aud loavo tho houso instanter. But. wo?
men, on tho contrary, must listen to a lecture
whether they liko "it or not; they have no
where to go, and take ir, perhaps, as tho price
they must pay for a needed dress or bounot.
" Sorosis " in New York has almost com?
mitted tho unpardonable sin in daring to have
a "good timo"; it has given private ontortaiu*
ments, besides partaking ot lunches, but it lias
done no eood in inaugurating early hours, ia
setting an example of freedom of dress, and

all bc freo to follow their tastes and inclinations, ;
tobo liberal if their moans will allow it, aud |
simple to severity if they prefer it. The great i
difficulty has been with all so-called rotornis
in dress and habits, that one arbitrary form i
was substituted for another. What wo want, j
what women want, is what men have-freedom.
Freedom to dross plainly or elegantly as they :
choose; freedom to kecpn fashion that pleases i
them, or discard one that does not suit them;
freedom to treat their guests to "tea and toast,"
or whit? grapes and Froucb confectionery, as
they choose and as their means will permit; to
got rid of repetition and monotony ; to enjoy
everything with zest and ardor, and exclude
no one from participating in the common ?
work and common enjoyuieut.
Tho weather this wmtor is, BO far, so much
milder tbau last season, us to prom'so rory
little skating. Still there is quito a rage for
pretty skating custumos, and many very strik?
ing ones are in preparation. Of course they
arc all short aud in tho high colors and bril?
liant Scotch plaids winch ure so fashiouublo,
and whicli are very picturesque seen en m issi:
One of the prettiest wc have aeon was made ia ?
scarlet meriuo, trimmed with narrow bands of
gray astracau. Littles toque' and muff of thc
astrac?n only, with a small scarlet breast in
the toqiiet. Another was ot gurnet cloth, trim?
med with bands of black velvet, a large black
velvet bow with short ends looping up tho capo
at tho back. A third wai a dark blue clot li
trimmed with narrow bands ol black feather
trimming aud black rosettes; and a fourth a
genuine Tartan, tho McPherson, green, red
mid black, looped up al thc sides and upou tho
back of tho capo with round bows of black vel- 1
vet with several narrow flowing cuds. Those
Scotch costumes ure very gay and stylist wheu
becomingly made; but for skating purposes
there is nothing half 30 pretty aa the complete
cloth 018turnes trimmed with narrow bc ntls ol
for. With skating dresses uo hooped skirts ate
worn; ia fact, crinoline, so far vus tho skeleton
ca^es uro concerned, winch have b.;cn so luug
worn, may be said to have buen abandoned
by women of any pretensions Lo fashion. ??ti eet
COSlume8 ure woru entirely without hoops, and
even traiued dresses are supported by crino?
line so restricted in its dimensions as 'to seem ?
to be destitute ot it also.
Tho great difference just now between, a
fashionable aud unfashionable appeal ance is
the decidod presence and apparent absence of
hooped skirts. The street (t irs display then:
to thc same extent as ever. O.d-fashioned peo?
ple who lire iu the country, aud could not be
coaxed to put them on for years after their in?
troduction, cannot now bo * persuaded to leave
them off, and thc public city balls which fot
low each other in such quick succession, and
are the goal of tho shop girl's and sewing
girl's ambition, show little diminution in the
volumo of display. Ladies at Stewart's, how?
ever,.stopping out ot' their carriages at Del?
monico'*, at priva to parties, or fashionable
women at home, occupy only a third tho space
tkey did form ci ly, and are relieved from all
the* encumbrances of gathering thoir Bkirts
about them. Tho edge of their scant flounces
reveals thc slight arched instep of tho dainty
kid boot, and require no cffjit to keep them
in placo or from becoming entangled in tba
clumsy toes of unaccustomed boots.
The" manufacturer* of hooped skirts have
themselves dono a very fo ?\a\\ tlnus, and
thereby hastened thc downfall o:' th::; singnlar
pct ot fashien and fortuna, I i th? face of t!io
direct t.md. ney to narrow skirls and restricted

and did not give suffirent work to the dress?
makers. Tho fashionable hoo;i wore with
toilettes of ceremony ie very small, impercepti?
ble iu fact, and ia used only as a Bnpport lo the
flounced underskirts which gives just the ne?
cessary distension to the lengthened drapery
of thc traiued dress.
GRAND TOILETTES FOE TUE nOLIDAVS.
Christmas and New Year's day always bring
out a number of beautiful aud original toilettes,
it being a sine qua non with every eily haly to
appear in an entirely frosh costume before hor
guests on the auspicious Hist day 0.' the year.
What it shall be, and how twenty-five dollars,
fifty doll ara anda huuJrcd dollars can bc ex?
pended to look like Cfcy, one hundred or a
thousand, is the problem that many women
crack their brains to solve, some with success,
tho majority, nias! without. Some taste anda
good deal of monoy generally sue cc sd, however,
iu producing moro or lc?s ot' charming re ult:.?;
and it is onlyjtuit io say that the mosl (.i?^c.ivo
are not generally by any menus ll.o moot coally.
P/lack siik is mach used this season, even m
thc composition of party toilettes, arid it is
considered especially distinguished for sftCr
noon and duiner dresses. One of the ruubt
striking of theso was mads by a celebrated
modiste hi tho following manner: The akin
was abort and plain in front with the exception
of a strip of deep flounce, with, a doubla head
ing of silk and satin folds, and rich knotted
fringe. From the sides which were scolloped
out, and ornamented with large bows of rib?
bon, it formed a manleau (Je la cour with a
sweeping train surmounted by a pannier bor?
dered with fringe; tho body was high and
trimmed square with folds of sillc and satin
and deep triune; tho sleeves were coat shape
and edged at the wrist with rich luce which
fell back from thc hand. Ono of the hand?
somest New Yoar's dresses is of err cen satin,
thc light brilliant shade striped with white.
Tho skirt was quite plain, but deeply trained,
cut in scollops and bound with green siitin, thc
low boddicc cut square and filled in with rich
guipuro lace alternating with strips of inser?
tion, through which green satiu ribbon was
run. Tho waistband was fastened in front
with a rosette bound with green satin and or
nameuted at the bael; with a largo double bow,
with short ends of green satin. Another rich
dress was of shot satin, blue and black. The
upper part of thc body was finished with a
square pompadour o? blue satin, trimmed with
rich black lace. The sleeves were of blue satin
also divided into puffings by black niching
and finished with a rall of Vonitian point lace
at thc wrist. Thc skirt waa destitute of trim?
ming with tho exception of .1 short pannier
sash of blue satiu at thc back. A light
and most charming dress, made for a pure
blonde, was a pearl gray china crape, loop?
ed up with bands of white satin, and orr.a
mented with bows of pink satin ribbon. With
this dress the blonde hair is worn powdered,
puffed high and ornamented with a pink roso
and loops of satin ribbon. A singular and
most striking effect iras produced by a ress
made for a beautiful brunette, who is not
ashamed to wear her own profusion of rich
dark bair. Tho dress was gold-colored satin,
covorod with a tunic composed of three flounc?
es ot black lace, garliniicd at the sides with
bronze leaves. Tho low body was trimmed
with bretelles of black lace," headed with a
wealth of loaves, and the lace was arranged to
form a panier bow afc tho back, with a cluster
of glittering bronze fohago in the centre.
ORNAMENTS FOB CHUISTMAS TBEES.
Tho growth or march, or whatover else it
maybe called, or luxury, invades everything,
but" is never exhibited in such perfoction as
during tho bolidays. Afc Ibis timo money
ceases to havo even* tho value which tbo war
has left it, and represents hardly auything
whatever. People ore expected to pay anything
asked ot tbeni for an article intended fora gift,
to spend thousands where they formerly spent
hundreds, and hundreds where tens wero deem?
ed sufficient, and tens-well, tens aro no bonsor
worth counting. It would hardly bo behoved
that the confectionery ulonc for a Christinas
tree could cost fivo hundred dollars; but in ono
instance at least it did so, and a visit to fash?
ionable confectioners will confirm tho state?
ment. The latest novelties in cases for holding
bon-bons to hang opon tbe Christmas trees are
a perfect imiialion on peper, or a plastor com?
position, of fruits, vegetables, bread and all
sorts of natural and prepared food. French
rolls, green caulliflowcrs, beets, apples, tur?
nips, potatoes, chickens, partridges, and the
like, aro 6o cleverly imitated that a counter
covered with them looks hko a stall in thc
market. But tho prices would hardly bo be?
lieved. They arc enormous. A boot for in
slanco is a. d d.'ar and ft half ; a brown tempt?
ing roll, or the crusty end ot a'Pronch loaf,
eight cents; a chicken, three dollars; and a
green crisp lettuce cr young head of cabbage,
two doll irs and t .vo and a half. All these ar?
ticles aro hollow on the inside, and opened by
moans of some concealed trap door, so that
they can bc tilled with candies, which at from
ninety cents to ono dollar and a half per
pound, absorb greenbacks rapidly. Then
there aro tito qmint gilt and "chocolate
ornaments, tho Turkish slippers, thc tall Tyro?
lean hats, the miniature trunks and hat boxes,
all intended to hold delicate little sweetmeats,
and ranging, without the sugar plums, from
twenty-five cents to a dollar each.
The Christmas hpxjs, however, aro tho cost- I
neat, ii"i na ctmrl^,U^.vvv iu.. t?.l

bought at confectioner s prices. Five to twenty
Bvo dollars is about the usual range; but fifty
and seventy-five dollars are not untrcqucntly
piid tor a box or set of boxes filled with French
Don-bons, unique in styl? and elaborately deco?
Christmas and New Year's gifts are becom?
ing a problem, and many, to escape tho diffi?

"WHAT axswss ?" 1
The Aagn ta Cotton Factory is an exception.
Its success ha^ beau wonderful. We know of
nothing like it iee thc history of cotton manu
factures. But it is obvious that tho showing of
its success is not a fiir criterion by which to
come to the conclusion that cotton can be manu?
factured at thc BouUi, dunner the next gene?
ration, cheaper than it can bo at tho North.
Within tho past five years we know of cotton
mills in New England that have tailed, while
there arc others that have paid for themselves
twice ovar, besides affording fat dividends.
Tho success of the Augusta establishment is
due entirely to skillful management. Its Presi?
dent is one of the best business mea in the
country, and its Superintendent is equally as
capable. If wc arc not mistaken, they are both
Northern men, and consequently they have
infused Yankee ideas into all their operations.
The goods of thc Augusta factory command
from one-half per cout. to ono and ons-half
per cent, more per yard than those of other
similar mills. The best of stock ia used, be
beeause its buyers arc right at home in the
market, and they always take advantage of tho
prices; but they arc "not more shrewd than
some of our Northern buyers have been. Dur?
ing tho war, when thc Augusta mill was using,
cotton which cost eighteen cents per pound,
there wero-sevcral mills in New Eugland that
had a six month's supply at tho samo price.
It is safe to say that tho comparison ot' tho
Augusta factory is an isolated o ie, sofaras
tho cotton mills of the South are concemod.
The testimony of many of its manufacturers
shows that thc dividends of tho cotton mills
aro generally small, and that during tho paat
three years many of thom have passed their
ADVANTAGES OF THE 80UTH TO COTTON MANU? AC
No ene will pretend to dispute the fact that
certain sections et thc South oner special ad?
vantages lor tho manufacture ot cotton. They
have climate and wages in their favor. Po
three man lbs in the year tho total cost of fuel
is less than one-leu th of a cent per pound on
manufactures of those months, aud as to
wages, land is cheap, and thc manufacturer is
enabled to givo each family of operatives a
large garden, largo enough to enable them to
raise their year's supply of vegetables. Wages
aro consequently low. Then there is the mat?
ter of freights. Thc Southern manufacturer
can save the freight on bagging, rope an?
waste, and ho can sell his waste to local paper
mills at quite Northern prices. If the freight
on one bale of colton from Charleston to New
York is two dollars and fifty cents, for instance,
on yarn, worth say one dollar and twenty cents
a hale, it is only sixty cents, there would bo a
difference of about two and a half per cent, on
I he value, providing tho cotton waa worth
eighty dollars. Tho Southern manufacturer,
too, purchases of thc producer or his agent,
thus avoiding commissions, brokerage aud
other charges paid by Northern mills.
WHAT THE SOUTH WANTS.
Just what thc South needs more than any?
thing else is capital and skilled labor. The
time is not yet come when a Lowell or a Man
eliLstcr can" be taken up bodily and sot down
along side any of thc splendid water-powers of
the Southern Stales. Tho people of tho South
cannot realizo in a few years that which it has
taken New Englaud a gcnoration of y oars to
achieve. The South has cottou at its door,
with abundanco of white labor imploring em?
ployment; it has some of the b03t water-pow?
ers in tho world, and enough to mn all the
spindles of the century. But the South is im?
poverished, aud it wants thc skill and tho capi?
tal of tho Northerner to make the advantages
of tho Soutj apparent. Tho planter wauta
money, and tho mann facturer wanta money,
and until the capital of tbo North comos
to tho help ot tho South, cotton will bo
manufactured cheaper at the North than at
the South. The influen?a of chmate upon
character, too, has something to do with the
development of cotton mauafacturo. The
Y linkes, who for years bas mado himself sharp
by delving in the keen atmosphere of the high?
er latitudes, has naturally more aptitude for
making money aud "pushing things'* than the
man accustomed to a hot climate which robs a
mau ot bis ambition, and deadens alLdisposi
M?M m. 'iMmi'-'vwxvi vtirr pluuuuu vmunor/u
of things, the Northern capitalist does not feel
safo to invest in cotton manufactures at the
South, and not until "peace" is fully establish?
ed, will he make a movement iu that direction.
In short, when a Northern man caa express
his opinions as freely there as ho eau in Now
York or Massachusetts, then will there bo
plonty ef music by the side of tho water-pow?
ers of the South, and the Northern manufactu?
rer will find iu the Southern manufacturer au
