This acted like an electric shock upon the

calls for Yankee Doodle. The actors

The Frlnnle Drui of Ihe l'rr.t-ul Day
We are inclined to think that the fo
male attire ofthe present day is, upon the
whole in aa favorable a state as the most
vehement advocates for what is called
nature and simplicity could desire. It is
a costume in which they can dress quick
ly, walk nimbly, eat plentifully, stoop
easily, loll gracefully, and in short per
form all the duties of life without let or
hindrance. Tho head is left to its natu
ral size, the skin to its native purity, the
waist at its proper region, the heels nt
theiureal level. The dress is calculated
to bring out tho natural beauties ofthe
person, and each of them has, as far as
we see fair play. Flounces are a nice
question. We' like them when they
wove nnd flow, as iu a very light material
muslin or gauzoor barege when a la
dy has no outline and no mass, but looks
like 11 receding angel or dissolving vie w;
but we do not like them in a rich mate
rial, where they flop, or iu a stiff one.
where they bristle; and where they break
the flowing lilies of tho petticoat, and
throw light and shade where you do not
expect them. In short we like the gown
that can do without flounces, ns Jose
phine liked a face that could do without
whiskers, but in either case it must bo a
good one. Quarterly Rerieie.

The United Stales Nautical Magazine
for September, in reviewing a book called
"Battles of the British Navy," by Joseph
Al'eu, a task which implies only point inr
out the most glaring misstatement, tells
an anecdote of the immortal Decatur,
which, to us at least, is new. It seems
ihe Englishman, in the plentilude of his
assurance, intimates that Decatur was
mistaken in the identity of the Macedo
nian, und that he tried to escape when he
discovered the command ofCapt.Curden.
I'o show the absurdity of such romance,
ihe Magazine tells the following anec
Before the war, Cept. Carden and the
Macedonian were ut Norfolk; Decatur
was there. Ion ond a warm intimacy soon
joinod in friendship two kindred hearts.
W bile discussing naval affairs one day,
Garden saidi "Decatur, your ships are
good enough, and you are a clever set of
fellows; but what practice havo you had
in war? there's the rub. One of these
days we will probably have a 'brush' to
gether, and if I catch your ship ot sea, I
will knock her into a cocked hat, Ste
phen." "Will you?" says Decatur; "I
will Lit you a hat un it." The Let was
agreed on, and the convocation changed.
But a few months el.ii-ed eio the war
that had been threatening commencod.
ami the two c;it tains, by some mngular
coincidence, met. The results of the ac
tion are known. Cant. Carden; on going
on board ofthe United States was receiv
ed by a lieutenant at the gangway, to
whom lie tendered his sword, "Not to
me, sir," said llie officer, '-but to the Cap
lain." "And where is tlie Captainl" said
the embarrassed Englishman. "He is
standing aft there, that is the gentleman,
sir, in a tarpaulin hat and round jacket."
Carden went aft, and his feelings, on
meeting, under such circumstances, his
old friend, may be imagined. As he of
fered his sword to Decatur, that officer
said. "No, Garden; I never take the
sword of a brave man; you have fought
gallantly." "But,"' said he, laying his
hand 011 the other's shoulder, "1 w ill lake
that hut, my dear fellow."
In transferring to the United States
the suite of Capt. Carden, a fine band was
included. Iu the Qttei nonn, when dinner
was announced iu the cabin, Capt. Car
den said to Decatur, "those musicians
are veiy skillful, aud I have always had
them on deck while at my dinner."
"Very well," snid Decatur, "we will have

i.tTsnr Gi.ocv. h iseslim ited that mnro
than a million bushels of human and in
human hones were imported last year
from the continent of Europe into the
port of Hull. The neighborhood of Le
ipsic, Austerlitz, Waterloo, and all the
places which during the lute bloody war,
the principle buttles were fought, have
been swept alike of bones of the hcroe.
Thus collected from every quarter, they
have been shipped into Hull und thencQ
forward to the Yorkshire bone grinders,
who have erected steam engines and
powerful machinery, for the purpose of
reducingthem to a granulary state. In
this cuiidition they are sent chiefly tn
Doucaster, one of the largest agricultural
markets in that country, and there sold
to tlie farmers to manure their land.
The oily substance gradually evolving as
the bones calcine, makes a more substnn
stanlial manure than almost any other
substance particnlary humauboiies. It
is now ascertained beyond a doubt, ey
actuel experiment that a dead soldier is
a most valuable article of commerce; and
for aught wo know to the contrary, tho
good farmer of Yorkshiie are in a greot
measure indebted to the bones of their
children for their daily bread. It is cer
tainly a singular fact, that Great Britain
shouid have sent out such a multiude of
soldiers to fight its battles on the conti
nent of Europe, aud should then import
their bones as an article of commerce to
fatten their soil. English Paper,
