of tableaux, shadow pictures, music
by the band,etc. Among tlie tableaux
were "Frost Fairies," "Scene in an
Artists Studio," "Vestal Virgin" etc.
The shadow pictures,' Drinking Scene,'
"Tooth-ache Man," "Tending the Bi
by," "Gymnastics," "Kissing Scene,"
and "Jumping Jacks," were interest
esting to say the least, The floral dis
play was creditable, everybody was
in good spirits, and socially consid
ered, the evening was a decided suc
cess. At this early hour it is impos
sible to estimate the profit, but we
hope the ladies will realize a hand
some sum, as they deserve to. Want
of space forbids our giving a more ex

made at concessions. There is a good stock
of new Kentucky combing on hand, for which
holders ask 50 cents, buH6c«*47 cents is all that
could be obtained lor it If forced on tho mar
ket now. Very choice lots brought 50 cents,
hut tho principal transactions of the week
were understood to be at 47 cents, and th s
may be considered a fair quotation for avei
age lots. The market has in fact become
rather null for comning and delaine fl eces,
and holders ute already beginning to feel that
the prices paid for this description in the inte
rior were altogether too high. At the s»me
Ihe consumption of medium and combing
grades is siiii quite hug. , and it'a few leading
buyers would enter the market und purchase
any nonslderublequanilty, a favorable Change
would so n take place. Transactions lv Cali
fornia embrace 721,000 pounds, and holders are
disposed to place the new clip as fast as possi
ble. The range ol prices indicates no material
change, but concessions are made to effect
sales, and prices nre taken now that would
not have been considered a lew weeks ago.
Sales of Spring have been al 27t<ij28c. and of
Fall at16422c, but a fair quotation for good
aud choice los of Spring Is from ;iu to 36c., and
anything that brings an advanco on the lat
ter price must be of very superior quality.
Pubed wools have been sold o a lair extent,
sales of the week comprising 170,0 0 lbs., but
