A flapper at Alexandra Daunaa'e
A writer In Bcntlcj'sJitttKafip thus describes
sapper given by Alexandre Dnmasi
"yesterday, at eleven o'clock In the arming,
a crowd of artists, literary, and even' learned
men, as also of pretty women, friends of the
poet-romancer, crowded the gronnd Boor, which,
decorated for their reception, was danllng to
contemplate. The most beautiful gilt mediae
ral statuettes, works of modern fancy, detached
themselrcs all round from the garnethuod pa
fer hangings, which were here and there sober
y rellered by great golden nUi whilst on the
rest chimney the antique "Thief," In bronze,
four to Bre feet In height, raising up Ita arms
between two Immense china rases, lowing over
with flowers and leaves, heaths and creepers,
seemed to applaud the great Venus of JIllo,
who, white and serene, stood opposite, to him
- on the top of a sculptured pedesta1,domlnatlng
U the- other statues.
" "An oaken frieze extended from the floor to
-the height of the elbow all round beneath the
garnet-nued paper hangings, our one side of
which was an admirable Gothic prU Ditu with
colored sculptures of the Annunciation) on the
other, a slde-tabl. loadod with bronzes of Baryl,
crystal, and China) at each side an Algerian
divan f beyond oaken arm-chairs carved In
pointed arches, and on each side of tho Venus
of Mlto, who stood opposite to the fire place,
were tyro colossal Jare full of plants and flowers.
Ample curtains, of a deep-toned scarlet, hung
before tho three windows and the doorway.
These were spoil brought away by the poet
from the shoulders of smugglers of Malaga and
of Seville, to whom they served as capes during
the day and as beds at night.
"In tho centre of the floor, covered with a
great Java mat, with many colored designs,
was extended the terrible sdoIIi of arrest white
bear of the lev ocean, that had perhaps seen the
brave and unfortunate Sir John Franklin pass
by under the Arctic Pole. , And, then(1over all

s always so at Alexandre Dumas's, where each
friend has a right to bring his friends to do hon

the good fortune to possess all the, ladles Bel
gian, French and Spanish and they did Justice
to their host's hospitality. The viands, the

A Shot from the night Quarter.
It will be remembered In America and Eng
land that eight years ago, an "Address" was
sent to the women ot this country, signed by
,ha)( a million of their British sisters, Imploring
1 xaiem to use all their Influence to abolish negro
slavery In this country. This remarkable docu
ment, splendidly Illuminated on vellum, with
all the signatures, was bound up In twenty-six
folio volumes, and sent to Mrs. Harriet Beecher
Stowe, to be promulgated far and wide In Amer
ica; 'Among the 'ladles who first put their
names to the "Address" were the wives of Lord
Pslmerston, Lord'haftesbury, Lord Cowley,
the Puke of Bedford, the Duke of Argyle, Earl
Russell, Baron Parke, Lord Ruthvcn, Mr. Glad
stone, and other well-known British celebrities.
The-husbands of most of the signers to
this address having1 thrown all their Influence
In favor Of the South against the North, and
bolstered up slavery with all thelrpowerful sup
port, Jjrs. Stowe baa written "A Reply" to
this "Address," which will appear In the Janu
ary number or the Atlantic Monthly, .and she
will lay before the ."many thousands of the wo
men of Great Britain," In her forthcoming pa
per, the inconsistency of their appeal. It will
be a document that will stir the English heart
or we are greatly mistaken 'In the trenchant
power of Mn, Stowe's eloquent pen. .V. 1.

WEEKXr NATIONAL REPUBLICAN.
The undersigned commenced, In the month
of December, i860, the publication, tn this city,
of a weekly newspaper, called the National itV
pttbliean. It Is printed on a large sheet, twenty-seven
by fortj4wo Inches, and Is furnished at the low
prices stated below.
It contain all the original matter ofthe
Daily National Republican, with the exception I
ui iuvai uvwr uui luicrvvung w cuuuiry auu
crlbers. It will glye full reports of the proceedings of
Congreas, and of the other Departments of the
It contains all the news of the day, foreign
and domestic, markets, Ac,, fcc, aa well as an :
original correspondence from all part of the
country. The miscellaneous department will
receive special attention, and, In all respects,
the eSbrt will be made to establish the charac
ter of the National Republican as a Family
Waahlngton being now the central point of
the current military operations, great attention
will be paid to furnishing the reader of the
National Republican with full, and especially
with accvraU, accounts of the progress of tha
war for the Union.
In politics, the paper ts Republican, sustain
ing tho Administration of Mr. Lincoln.
There Is no other Republican paper In the
District of Columbia, or tn th vicinity or It,
and It Is believed that recent events hare opened
to such a paper an Important sphere of useful
effort. The time hsa come, when the actua
administration of tho Government upon Repnb
llcan principles will explode the mlinpreaen
tatlons which have made those principles a
dlststeful to the South.
But It Is not only here, and in this vicinity,
that the projectors of tho National Republican
hope to make It useful. To the whole country
they offer a Journal which will discuss national
politics from a national staud-polut, and which
will never be swerved from patriotic duty by
any overpowering pressure of local Interest.
