Rome Courier, 28th inst : • List night after
the circus performance. Mr. Wm. H Stocks, of
Round Mountain. Ala., went to his room at the
Rome Hotel to retire for the night. He placed
a lighted candle in a chair and also his fine gold
watch that cost him *135. Just before retiring
he heard someone quietly walk up to his door
and turn the knob once or twice. He walked
to the door and opened it. vnd found a man
standing there, who asked to be excused as
he had made a mistake. Mr. Stocks
thought nothing strange of' this, so be
closed the door and retired. He
had not been in bed long before he heard the
same noise at thedoor. Rising, he again opened
the door and discovered what he uppoaed to
be the same man who first came, 'i he visitor
said: ‘Please excuse me; I have made a mis
take in the room.’ This time Mr Stocks took
the key from the lock and placed it on the
chair with his watch. On awakening thia
morning he discovered that his room had been
entered by a burglar, and that his watch and
chain and a few dollars in change had been
stolen. Fortunately for Mr Stocks, he tad de
posited with Williamson & Cos early in the dav
nearly all the money he brought up with him.”
Gairesville Eagle: “It seems that on last
Saturday night a week ago. James Elrod and

pose of utterly annihilating a certain young
merchant During the progress of the ‘war
the above gentlemen would ever and anon in

’Mountain Dew.’ After killing a considerable
quantity of this mild tonic they seemsd to for
get their mission, and proceeded forthwith to
institute a small rebellion between them
selves. About this time, so we learn,
a soiled dove, known as Hattie

engaged in the conflict with a will. The result

Darien Timber Gazette: ‘On Monday night
last Officer Guyton, at the instance of one Ed
ward Wilson, colored, arrested the Hev. Prince
E. Gad den, pastor of the First Afri an Metho
dist Church of l'arien, charging him with an
assault with intent to murder. From what we
can gather the following are about the particu
lars: On Monday night Gadsden went to the
hovse of a colored woman, broke in thedoor
and commenced firing upon the said Wilson,
who was in the house at the time, but who, ac
cording to report, did not stop for prayers, but
got out of there at the rate of forty miles a
minute. The report goes th-t the colored
min.ster was living with a colored woman
in the house, and finoing Wilson there on
his arrival, commenced to shoot at him.
Gadsden was at once arrested and lodged
in jail. On Tuesday at twelve o’clock he
was brought before Justice Junes Walker,
the court room being packed with colored
people, women and rnen, who all seemed to
take the deepest interest in the result of the
trial. As soon as court was opened, Walter A
Way. Fsq . attorney for the defence, moved
that the warrant he dismissed on the grounds
of its illegality. Justice Walker being satisfied
that the warrant was not perfect dismissed it
without argument,and was getting out another
one when the leaders of Gaosden’s church got
together, ani. after holding a conference,
offered to compromise the ea*e bv making
their former beloved pastor vacate his pu'pit
and leave the city at once. This proposition
was accepted by tbe Wi son crowd and the
Reverend Gadsden notified to p.ick his carpet
bag and leave for more congenial climes. We
are told that Gadsden has a family at Bain
bridge. which makes the case so much the
worse for him ”
Under the caption “The two suits in-o which
two Governors get themselves." the Constitu
tion says: “Yesterday the Willimantic Com
pany did some work against time, in which the
old father was vanquished. One of the fea
t ires of the day’s doings was to be the making
uf the two suits of clothes from the seed cot
ton. Bright and early a number of people
went out to the grounds to see the process. A
little after sunrise a few individuals, on hand
for the occasion, stepped into one of the
pitches on the grouncs. and almost in a
twinkling the cotton was picked and Rimed.
At twenty minutes to seven it started on its
av, entering first the Kitson picker; at seven
o’clock it went to the Foss & Pevey cards,
thence to the railway head, built by tbe
I/Mve’l Machine Company. Then it rapi’ly
found its way to the speeder built by the C ity
Machine Company of Providence. From there
it went to the Fails & Jerks frame, and was
s-on what the observer was ready to
pronounce thread. This was taken to a
Crompton lo m and the process of
weaving commenced. ”he crowd that
hd watched the course of the cotton as it
p i.-sed from stage to stage grew until the aisles
were blocked up. Everybody wanted t > see
the work going on. As soon as the cloth
emerged from the loom it wsg taken ty the
dye house of N Spencer Thomas and dyed
As soon as It was dried it was taken to the
Wheeler & Wilson exhibit, where the suits
were cut out—one for Governor Colquitt and
one for Governor Bigelow The silk w hich had
been furnished by Cheney Broth-rs, and
which was of American manufacture, was
ready. The making of the suits was com
menced The cutting was done by Atlanta's
favorite tailor, Mr. Grosse. whose taste and
ability guaranteed perfection in h>B depart
ment of the work. The button holes were
made at the rate of two a minute by H L.
Phelps, of New York, on the National Machine
Comp -ny's button-hole machine. As the day
closed the suits came completed from tli j
hands of the tailors, and in the evening the
Governors wore handsome black suits, ma te
from cotton that at sunrise dai gled, dew
geouned. from tbe stalks. So much for fast

authority, in the morning:
“Mr. Edward Atkinson and the commit
tee of the New England Cotton Manufac
tur?rs Association, with their friends, have
made their first visit to the Exposition. All
are astonished at the magnitude of the
undertaking, and at the great varie’y of
exhibits in respect to cotton. From the
field to the finest fabric nothing is want Pd.
Matters of great interest are found in the
treatment of the cotton in seed aDd in
ginning and preparing it. There are vari
ous processes of improvement of which as
yet but little ia known, but which are of
the utmost importance to future manufac
“The collection of ores, timber and other
natural products is unequalled. In fact it
is the iudgment of the committee that no
one who can possibly spare the time
should fall to visit Atlanta and the Expo
sition. The committee are agreed that
there has been nothing equal to this exhi
bition since the Center trial, and that In re
spect to cotton and all Its products this
excels as much as that fell short.
“Accommodations are ample, good and
cheap. The one thing now needed Is the
hearty co-operation of the railroad corpora
tions to assure cheap fares and a large at
tendance. Nothing ever before happened
in the history of the country to prove so
adequately the identity of interests of the
cotton grower and cotton manufacturer as
this exhibition.”

Washington, October 31.—An order was

English banks during tbe war to the credit,
of the Confederate Government Is still held

D further said, has made several attempts
to ob'ain possession of this gold but has
always failed, the English banks contend
ing that the money could tint, be surrender
ed except to holders of bonds issued by the
Confederate Government.

Suits Against Railroads Operating
Leased Lines In Other States.
Washington, Oc'ober 31.—A question of
much Importance to all railroad corpora
tions, which are chartered Id one State and
do business on leased lines In other States,
was decided In the United States Supreme
Court to day. The question arose In the
three cases of the Baltimore and Ohio Rail
road Company against Koony & Funk
houser, which were brought here by
appeal from tbe Supreme Court of Appeals
of Virginia. The defendants in error sued
the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Company
In a Virginia State Court for damages on
account of the killing of three persons
several years ago In an accident on the
Virginia Midland Rillroad, which was at
that time one of the leased lines of the
Baltimore <fc Ohio Railroad. The latter com
pany filed a petition for the removal
of the cases to the Federal Courts for the
reason that the Baltimore and Ohio Com
pany was a corporation of Maryland while
the complainants were all clt'zins of Vir
ginia. The petition was denied by tbe
State court on the grouud that the Balti
more and Ohio Company by leasing the
Virginia Midland Road be-came a corpora
tion of the State of Virginia, and, as such,
was properly liable to 6Uits In the courts of
that State.
TLts dfdslon had been affirmed by the
highest S ate tribunal. The Baltimore and
Ohio Company brought the case here on a
writ of error. In an elaborate opinion by
Chief Justice Waite this court holds that a
railroad corporation which operates
leased lines and transacts business In
another State than the one
where It Is chartered does not by reason of
that fact become a corporation of that other
Sta'e. On the contrary, it carries with it,
wherever it eoes, all its chartered rights and
may claim 11 of its chartered privileges
as a corporation of its own State
by doing business away from
its legal residence, which Is at Its
principal place of business in the State
which chartered it. It does Dot chaDge its
citizenship but 6imply extends the fields
of its op< rations. In other words a Mary
land company does not become a
Virginia company simply because it leases a
Virginia company’s property. It retains its
citizenship and all privileges which that
citizenship confers, and It cannot be forced
to trial In the Virginia State courts.
The judgment of the Virginia Supreme
Court of Appeals Is therefore reversed.
The Leagae Funds to be Mi a red

Dublin, October 31.—The editor of the
Freeman's Journal, in publishing Parnell’s
letter, stated that he was compelled to omit
portions of It In view of the government’s
proclamation of the Land League. It Is
understood that the portions omitted are as
“The only organization now practicable is
that the tenants should meet by estates,
when eummoued to pay ren’, aud decide
upon common action as recommended in
the League’s manifesto. The time has now
come for the people to choose between the
land court and the L n ague. We will de
vote our resource to the support
of those who stand by the princip’es of the
League, but we cannot do anything for
evicted tenants on those estates where their
fellow tenants on tbe same estate are un
mindful of these principles.
“We have, therefore, directed the custo
dians of our relief funds to refuse help to
the tenants on any estates where the rest of
the tenants have either applied to the land
court to fix their rents or to fix their paid
rents. We recommend evicted tenants to
continue to rely on the Land League and
not to waste their slender resources In a
uselets legal struggle.”

Washington, October 30. —President Arthur
has shown his forbearance in one of the nomi"
nations which he has made. He has nominated
H, J. Ramßdell for the position of Register of
Wills for the District of Columbia. One of the
last official acts of the late President before he
was shot was to appoint Ramsdell Register of
Wills under a recess appointment. Ramsdell
ia a newspaper man. He has been for yea-s a
newspaper correspondent in Washington. He
has been somewhat successful, and, by dint of
what we might call an assertativeness, has
gathered unto hitnse fa repu’ati :m as
a news man somewhat beyond his
real capabilities Ramsdeli’s great forte
in latter years has been to denounce and
heap abuse upon General urant and President
Arthur. He has just whooped himself up on
this point. He has spoilt manjytktan sheets of
papei tn this endeavor " sure his stuff
never had anv real e but that made no
difference. No abuse of Hran* and Arthur was
too low or common not to be put into print bv
him. He wm a candidate for the position of
Register of Wills in this District when Hayes
came in. Because that nonenity did not see
fit to appoint him. Ramsdell openeb a series of
artie'es, abusing him for all manner of alleged
things during his incumbeney.Senator Oomtiing
was also the subject of his abuse. Conkling
designated him “tne sewer rat of journalism.”
Despite - his abuse of himself and friends— x
cluding Hayes of course from the latter class—
President Arthur+ias made good the Garfield
recess appointment of Ramsdell by sending his
name to the Senate as Register of Wills. There
is certainly forbearance for you! But perhaps
a ; terall it is only a small exhibition of that
trait, as Ramsdell certainly is a very small man.
With a tact which I regret to record is
too seldem < xhibited by them, the
Democrats of the Senate have made
much good use of the nomination of
Siatham, a Readjuster ex Confederate, to suc
ceed Wilson, an ex Union Republican soldier,
as Postm ‘Ster at Lynchburg, Virginia. The
fighting ground was theirs aud they took it.
They rasped the Republicans to the quick
about their “sympathy” for the ex-Union sol
dier and held ihsir pretensions up so that light
could be sen through them The Republic .ns
were placed upon a most disagreeable de
fensive. The bargain with Mahoue had to be
carried out, so they fought for their Readjuster
man as agalnit an ex Union sjldier. with a
record that the history of the war shows
was one most enviable to any man It
was almost laughable It was also somewhat
despicable. Tne Hepublisans, unable to stand
upon the ground where the fight really rested,
contented themselves with personal abuse of
th. ex-Union soldiers. Tbey tried, but to no
avail, to show that he was dishonest in th.
management of the affairs of the Lynchburg
post office, but the Democrats, with a judgment
to be commended, kept them pinned down to
the real i-sue—the removal of a gallant ex-
Union soldier and the appointment to bis place
of an ex Confederate Readjuster, simply to
advance the cau?e of Mahone and repudiation
in the State of Virginia.
President Arthur, in the Lynchburg post
office matter, showed that as far as lay
iii his power he was willing to aid
the Mahone bargain. The Keadjusters of
Virginia expected to be able to show
by the confirmation of the Readjus'er ex-
Confederat‘> as Postmaster at Lynchburg
over Hie Union soldier, that the whole govern
ment was in favor of tbs Keaejuster cause.
1 hey expected to make much capital out of
such a consummation, and that was one of the
main reasons why 'he Democrats elevated the
Ljcchburg post office into an issue of import
anceand fought every attempt at a change. The
Repulilicaus. after fighting over the matter in
executive session, and prolonging the session of
the Senate a day longer than was expected,
gave it up and finally consented to adjourn
ment, seeiDg the determination on the other
side not to allow the Mahone bargain to be
stamped with approval. Ho the whole thing falls
through once more. It will be remembered that
once before there was a dead lock upon
the question of legislative approval of Mahone
and hi* purchase by the Republicans. It. was
over the question whether Riddl- berger should
be made bergeant-at Arms of the Senate. Rid
dleberger is the sham duel lieutenant of Ma
hone. But that also failed. In all Fed
eral appointments in the State of Vir
glnia, outside those which have to be
confirmed by the Senate, President Ar
thur is giviDg the full support of the admluis
tratlon to Mahone and the Readj isters. Good
olid advices from Virginia say that even with
that help the Keadjuster ticket will not be
elected, but that the Democratic majority will
be sufficient for all practical purposes, if not
very large.
President Arthur has since he entered upon
thedu iesof his office been frequently ap
proached by temperansc and total abstinence
advocates in regard to the conduct of the sd
mir.itiation upon those questions *nd the
domestic affairs of the White House. The
President has answered no letters upon the
question, but has si oken quite freely to the
people who have peisotially appeared before
him in these matters. Be aa>s that the quee
tion of the liquor traffic is one open to
legislation. and refers the advo
cates of restricting laws on its
subject to Congress and the Legidaturea of
the several States. He has also said that in
the matter of how dinners shall be f erved at
the White House he shall set as he did iu his
own house In New York, where wine upon ihe
table wss the rule. In th# matter of serving
wine t official entertainments at the Execu
tive Mansion h< would, he said, do Just as he
would if he were giving an entertaiument in
hisown house. There wine would be served,
ad it will be served to the guests at the White
Hous* upon such occasions. He was very
frank in his statements, and said, like
President Garfield, that he regarded the
use or abstinence from wine and liquors as a
subject to be dealt with by each bead of a
household as in his opinion was thought the
The boom in Confederate bonds will, very
likely, in the course of time prove a mutter of
difference between this anti the British Govern
ment,. The only reason that can be assigned
for the purchase of the bonds of th* late Con
federacy hinges upon the matter of £BOO,OOO ia
gold now in Ihe Bank of England, which was
the property of the Confederate Government.
The purchasers of these bonds are in fact all
Englishmen, who are buying through brokers
in this country. It is evident that
the real purchasers must have
information that ihe English Government in
tends to pay out the £BJO,COO of Confederate
gold pro rata amosg the bondholders, an t are
buying to scoop in the pro rata. The United
States Government has several tiroes announc
edits claim to this money, and upon several oc
casional intervalsof a few years the Solicitor of
th Treasury has been instructed to investigate
and institute proceedings for the recovery of
the £3oo,iflu with the interest .which has ac
crued. Beyond this, however' nothing has
been done, t-hould the English Government
announce its intention to pay the money to
the bondholders the United States Gov
eminent w> uld undoubtedly enter a
I rotest as the legal owner of the gold. Upon
this would arise a very nice diploma io point
which, before it is settled, could run out a
number of years. Everybody is perfectly safe
in selling their Confederate bonds at the prices
offered for them-
President Arthur is going to New Y'ork Stcte
shortly to rest and recuperate. It is always
the custom to say that the President is greatly
overworked, and to pretend to Bee in his ap
pearance signs of the wear
of care and much labor. But, do
spite this popular delusion, I have never
really seen any such worn-outness about Presi
dents. On the other hand, all I have ever seen
appear to like the whole outfit Immensely, and
to get fat under the “great pressure.” Cer
tainly President Arthur does not look as if h#
was so utterly fatigued. He looks even better
than when he came here. He has received but
very few callers, and has listened not to the
bewitching voice of the office seeker. All be
has done has been to send in a few nominations
and to select one member of his Cabinet, after
bungling over that. The cares of State have
certainly laid no heavy hand upon him. But,
nevertheless, he is going away under the popu
lar delusion in the public mind that he needs
rest, and is almost totally broken down in con
Very few Senators are now left in town.
There was a general stampede after the ad

main to look after matters for their constitu

very few. There are one or two candidates
for the Speakership of the House on hand, but
they do not stir the current of politics, which
will be dead until the latter part of November,
as rar as the two House* of Congress are
concerned. What the next Congress will have
for its leading features is as yet undeveloped.
Nobody has any idea on the subject. There
were plenty of bills left over by the last C in

be a start with a clear calendar. Doubtless
many or the measures which attracted atten

were selected and plans approved, and ar

Of the Fig Island range lights, Savannah

"Work on these lights was commenced on
November 4 and finished on November 80,

trouble to get the figures of the cotton crop
from the Bureau bv States for this and last
year, from a comparison of which It, will be
seen he makes a shortage of 800,000 bales.
The agricultural estimate of the production
of each State for the year 1880, having been
furni-hed us, we make the calculation on
its report, which gives to each State the fol
lowing amount for 1881:

ritories 72,209 same 72,209

This gives, according to agricultural re
port of per cent, for each State, a total of

Add for increase in acreage 7 per cent. 295,602
Crop raised in 1881 4,524,571
Add the difference between the pro
duction of 1881 and the receipts of
1880, part of which was of crop on
hand, about 300,000
This gives us as receipts to be expect
ed in 1881, if all comes out 4,824,571
But let us assume that the department
may be wrong, and has underesti
mated it say 10 per cent., then we
could only expect a crop of 5,307,028
Then add excess of old stock over
stock of 1819 400,000
Giving a total of 5,707,028
And if this amount of 5,707,028 bales, which
includes the esiimate of the Agricultural
Department, and 10 per cent, more added to
It, also includes 400,000 bales excess of stock
over 1879, and 7 per cent, increase acreage
is all tbe cotton we are to have, it will prove
short of the wants of the world, as expert
enee has demonstrated that the Increased
consumption of cotton for several years
has been at least 8 per cent,., If not more;
s j the demand will exceed the supply, and
cotton Is now selling In Liverpool for
less than same time last season, and this
tn the face of a short supply. We have
passed through the most trying
drought ever known In this country,
one that covered nearly every State
In the Union, beginning about the Ist
of July and lasting to about the 10th to 15‘h
of September; and the heat during the
drought was withering In its effect on all
vegetation—corn, cotton and vegetables of
every description. The cotton grown on
the uplands became verv ‘‘anted In growth,
yielding but few bciis of cotton, and the
plant losing its vitality before the raiDS ap
peared, and the cotton on the low or bot
tom lands had but little life left, and
showed some signs of making a top
crop. But the worms and the short
time left It to mature will not furnish
us much cotton from this eource.
The picking commenced about two
weeks earlier than former years,
and tbe weather has been unusually favor
nble for picking the crop, and It has been
marketed very early; hence the receipts
are thawing larger, in proportion to the
crop, than usual. Yet they are consider
ably below the receipts of last season.
They now show a falling off of about 175,-
000 bales, and we think before the first of
November will show 250,000 short, and will
lose considerable during November and
December, probably showing 500,000 short
by the first, of January, and after that lose
much more rapidly, as It will be nearly all
out. In many sec'lons the picking will be
done by the first of November.
The only reason cotton does not advance
more rapidly is that stropg parties, who
thought In Juue and Jn'y tbat the crop
promised about 7,000,000 bales, sold it freely
for delivery in October, November, Dectm
ber and January at very low prices, and
they have been pressing tbe market with
the view to put prices down, so they could
cover short contracts, and have done so
with wonderful success, haying forced it
down from the highest point about 95
points, and as Liverpool has been relatively
lower on cotton than New York, it gave the
bears a fine opportunity to sell here and buy
In Liverpool.
Liverpool squealed 60 much on our Ameri
can squeeze, and recommended legislation
against it, we would suggest that the beet
remedy for our “English cousins” is for
them not to sell what they have on hand.
This habit of selllt g the produce of our
country before the seeds are planted will
teach a lesson pot soon to be forgotten by
both cotton speculators aud tobacco ring
contractors. The Lord of the seasons comes
in occasionally to teach them a lessor.
Our bear operators ta'k confidently of a
G 000,000 bale crop. they forget thit, we
never made but one crop of that size since
we were a nation. All private letters from
the Sou’h confirm the report of the Agri
cultural Department with remarkable exact
ness, and we aay that If human testimony
is at all to be relied on the crop cannot ex
ceed 5 500,000 bales; and if so, we must see
very much higher prices for cotton, as It is
cheap If we had a full crop, and if we have
not a 5,000,000 crop we shall fee higher
prices than for many years. We will be
come very familiar with such prices
as 15, 16 and 17 cents per pound. Equally
as much so as $1 50 for wheat, or perhaps
$1 75 before another crop Is raised, and
75c , 80c. and 90e. perhaps fer corn. The
shortage of grain crops is entirely lost sight
of cn account of visible supply beiug
larger than last season. It is mostly fur
nished from stock of old corn and wheat
brought out by low rates of freight and
high prices. But when the old corn gjves
out, you will fpe but little of the new corn
seeking the grain centres. The eorn that
usually comes to York will go to fur
nish tbe South, and what little finds It*
way to St. Louis will go out Bouth and
abroad by barges down tbe Mississippi;
and much of that which usually goes to
Chicago Is being bought up and fed to cat
tle and hogs, as the prices of both are
high. Comparative receipts of wheat at
the Wt stern markets show wonderful short
age. The milling demand West Is absorb
ing the crop As prices are relatively higher
than seaboard, very little more may be ex?
pected. Much of tbe spring crop of wheat
is damaged by sprouting, and not one third
of It will grade No. 2, aud but little of th
corn will reach tbe speculative grade No. 2,
it b trg light and chaffy, so we give you tbe
facts as they appear to us. You can deal
with them us your judement dictates. But
remember every body uses corn, wheat and
cotton, and It is a long time before we raise
another crop, and it may not be a la-ge one.

ever art and ingenuity can devise in the way
of fanciful variation from an original idea.
The preference this season seems to be alto
gether in favor of soft, thick satins, velvets,
and plushes overlaid with designs which are
raised so decidedly as to give them the effect
of being put in relief. For example, there are
garnet satins enriched with designs in uncut
velvet which represent all the minutiae of the
most delicate lace, and have no counterpart
except among the magnificent fabrications
used for upholstery in the royal apartments at
Fontainbleau and Versailles. The lace pattern
is woven in so closely as to form a part of the
entire body of the silk so that it will literally
wear as long as a thread remains of it, and be
always handsome for garniture. It is used for
the fronts of trained and also of walking
dresses, and presents the appearance of a lace
embroidery executed in a minute bead work.
Sicilienne, which has heretofore been mainly
used for cloaks, is this winter employed for
trains, the front of the dress being of satin or
brocade and also the boddice. The colors are
such as ore only appropriate for rich dinner
dresses—salmon-pink, old gold, cardinal, Nile ,
olive and myrtle-green, and mulberrv-brown.
In velvet brocades very new and rich effects
are produced by combining the cut and uncut
lines in the formation of It af and floral designs
upon a thick twilled satin foundation.
ihe plushes are the most varied of all the
rich fabrics which have been made to do duty
in the service of the capritious goddess ot
fashion. Of some of them the close pile is a
quarter of an inch thick and exquisitely shaded
so as to produce the effect of softest animal
fur. In some the irregular lines in light
shades of brown upon darn seal look like the
skin of the alligator. In others the zebra, the
tiger and leopard skins are apparently repro
duced. Others have festooned effects, and
still others lightning-like darts or rainbowed
stripes, and these of course are most suitable
for linings and are principally used for that
purpose. An extraordinarily effective pattern
in plush has a large raised figure in the lighter
shades of brown upon a soft, thick, velvety
pile marked Into small crescents in the darker
shades so as to be almost invisible.
Many of these designs are thoroughly artis
tic and require artistic treatment in the dispo
sition of them. To cut them up io to destroy
them. They require massing in unbroken
lines, and are therefore used principally for
trains, the rich linings of black brocaded
cloaks, and for coats enriched only with artis
tic buttons.
The cloths of the season are very attractive
in the dark solid colors, and heather mixtures.
1 hey are used for complete suits dress, muff,
teque hat, and exterior coat or jacket—and
also for the braided overdresses and close fit
ting princesse polonaise draped high upon one
side over a satin or plain velvet skirt.
Quite a boon to economists has been devel
oped this season in anew make of vßveteen,
introduced as the nonpareil, and at extremely
moderate prices. The changes of fashion and
the hard wear to which we subject clothes in
great cities, renders the wear of si'k, or what
is called Lyons velvet, out of the question for
any but the very wealthy. Yet there are
many purposes for which an in
expensive velvet of good appearance is very
desirable, and ti e want seems to he met in the
nonpareil velveteen. The pile of this imported
fabric is short, thick and soft, and looks more
like real velvet than any heretofore used; in
fact, in the best qudity it requires an expert
to distinguish the difference, the “cotton” ap
pearance having been altogether gotten rid of.
It is particularly useful for walking suits,
for independent j ickets, and for girls’
and children’s wtar. A jacket of
red nonpareil velveteen with jabot of
white lace to the waist, is a charming addition
to the wardrobe of a young girl who has not
many party changes, and costs a mere trifle. In
black and brown it is excellent for skirts with
cloth over dresses, and it also makes very dis
tinguished looking “Princess” suits for boys.
A beautiful plaid cloth has been introduced
in dark green with lines of red and fine bars of
white, which is very effective and much ued
for trimming dark green dresses—and suits.
The prettiest are in the Jersey form, with
kilted skirts, and scarf drapery of the plaid;
the deep basque boddice fitting a rounded
figure like a glove, the plaid appearing in small
side poctets and fiat coat collar and cuffs. A
soft colored elastic material is new and used
for jackets, one stripe being elastic and the
other laid in clustered pleatings. It is intended
for Jersey costumes.
The winter walking dress, par. excellence,
is of dark plush and consists of a coat or half
fitting jacket and plain skirt, which clears the
ground. It is simple in appearance and ob
tains its distinction solely from the cost of the
material, which is from three to ten dollars
per yard. A suit, plain as it looks, is valued at
from three to four hundred dollars, and,
though finished with every attention to detail,
is only becoming to somewhat tall and very
slender figures, for it has tbe effect of shorten
ing and making them look what is technically
known as “bunchy.”
Plain velvet suits are equally expensive and
more susceptible to grace of outline. These are
usual y made of fine killings of sa’in in front
or at the sides and a box plaited back. The
coat may be cut with lappels or as a deep
basque, with square terraced sides, and a seam
at the waist line across the front. The trim
ming may be narrow lines of very fine go and
braid which does not tarni-h. But the basque
or coat of these velvet or plush costumes is al
ways faced with sarin, and h is not unfrequent
ly a plaited satin vest or plastron, which forms
a continuation of the tablier.
Simpler walsing dresses, and those which are
more generally u eful, are of dark cloth or
perge. with double or single breasted basque,
slightly cut away from the front, disclosing a
shirred or plotted scarf, which tortus a close
drapery across the front of the kilted skirt. A
fist coat collar at the neck is supplemented by
a narrow standing one. and a double row of
buttons ornaments the front of the basque.
Home of the designs have panelled sides en
riched with a soutache in several shades of the
color of the cloth, over the single self color.
The jacket is then braided to match.
Other walking dresses are of heather cloth
in the pretty dark mixtures that are now so
fashionable, made with three kiltings in front
and a draped back over a kilted flour ce, the
white dress being a Princesse, with a straight
coachman’s cape of plush in a darker shade of
color. A girdle of thick cord is looped and
knotted over the drapery at the back.
A costume may be enriched or made more
dressy by reducing the cloth dre-s to the
dimensions of a Princesss po'onaiseand wear
ing it over a flounced skirt of red or wine
colored satin, with a hat of felt or velvet
trimmed with feathers in different shades of
red or wine colors.
Avery stylish walking dress Consists of a
long close-fitting polonaise of billiard cloth,
draped high upon the left side with thick silk
over a dark mulberry velvet skirt. The hat js
a Rembrandt of inuiberry velvet or felt, and ia
trimmed with five ostrich plumes in shades of
mulberry tipped with gray—the color of the
cloth. This polonaise is also worn over black
velvet, with a large hat of black beaver trim
med with black plumes, without auy trace of
The pocket muff is not an ephemeral fashion.
It grows in favor and has been improved until
it now assumes a very useful and practical
shape. The latest designs are of cloth, velvet,
or plush to match the dress, the pocket in front
forming a morocco bag for ebange, a purse,
visiting can's or paper slips. The top opens
and forms a silk lined reticule which q-an be
used for a handerchief or sma'l purchases
The sides are open and ruffled at the top, the
interior lining being of plush or fur.
Round toques are often made to match these
suite, the crown being fitted to the head
by a series of shirring* below which is
the narrow puffed brim. A cloth, vel
vet or velveteen suit complete is as
oonvtnient and handsome a winter dress
as could be desired, aud on the score of com
fort the cloth is superior to the velvet Velvet
is so easily rubbed up and flattened thst it is a
source of constant anxiety to those who have
to use “walking” dresses for walking; and the
heather mixtures in cloth are not only more
suitable for the purpose but they are distin
tinguished by the approval of the best authori
Furs have received a decided set back
through the long continued warm weather
and the influence of plush. Tp the
use of fur lined cloak3 is charged
many aggravated affections of the throat an
chest, increasing tenderness of tbe lungs and
other affections of like character. There are
days of arctic severity in our Northern climate
when a fur-lined or furred mantle of some
kind seems almost a necessity, but, after all,
ladies who can afford furred or fur-lined cloaks
rarely venture out in such bittar weather,
while the tempta’ion is to make it serva every
purpose, the cost being such that few women
can afford more than one handsome street gar
ment. These considerations are reducing the
number of those who desire fur-line<i oil*,
cloaks, and adding to toe popularity of plush,
which is not open (o tle same objections,
especially in its lighter qualities, and at a dis
tance presents in the f :r patterns a precisely
similar appearance. Piush, too, has the addi
tional advantage of a greater variety of color
and design, and the peculiar beauty of the
plush designs adds another charm to the em
piojment of the fabric.
Beal fur retains its vogue, but Fashion by no
means restricts itself to one or two kinls of
fur, or to the darkest shades of color. Chin
chilla and a gray-mixed fur known as Russian
chinchilla are used for sets, and also for trim
mings. the sets consisting of a small muff and
collar shaped like an aftnostst-alght small old
fashionqd viatonne. Natural beaver, intro
duced iast season, is also very much admired,
but is sold more in “skating’* sets—straight
coachman’s cape and muff—than in anv other
Still, as before remarked, furs have been
much broken up, partly by the trimming or
mounting of cloth and other cloaks with fur
or plush collars, the introduction of the pocket
muff and muffs to match the costume, and
lastly by the lpng continued mild weather.
ahlcb prevents people from buying furs until
iey consider it too late to buy at all or h*y
provided themselves with what they are
witling to accept as a substitute. Long haired
furs have quite go'e out. The fashionable
furs have a short sett pile, and the furs which
have a mixture ot tints seem to have the pre
ference over thoee which are dork and solid.
7he early fall was distinguished by a sudden
irruption of small toques and turban hats and
diminutive bonnets made entirely of pheas
ant's feathers, in brilliant metallic greens and
some shaded browns. These feather hats are
pretty in the hand, but are not at all becom
ing on the head. They are not susceptible of
trimming, and look fiat and unplea antly
bright and metallic. The second thought of
most ladies, therefore, inclines them to
the distinguished looking beaver and felt bon
nets with furred borders,which can be worn as
poke bonnets or large hats, and which are
fashionably trimmed with at least five ostrich
Feathers as trimming are a rage of the sea
son to the almost utter exclusion of flowers,
and the number massed upon one large hat is
almost incredible. Five is the minimum; the
maximum depends upon the ingenuity of the
milliner in disposing of them. The exaggera
tions indulged in are not confined to the num
ber of feathers. The size and shape of some
of the novelties in head gear are astounding,
and would seemingly suit lunatics better than
sensible women.
The preparations for the gay season are on a
magnificent scale in some of the new fine
houses, and on the part of the fashionable
modistes. The electric light is found to add
greatly to the brilliant effect of ball costumes,
when placed high, and the finest ball rooms
will be certain to be illuminated in this way in
addition to myriads of wax candles in gilt,
brass or silvered candelabra, for it is not to be
supposed that every one, even of our wealthi
est citizens, can afford to imitate Mr. Wm. H.
Vanderbilt in having a solid silver chandelier
for a grand salon.
There is immense diversity in the handsome
toilettes now in the hands of modistes—more
than has ever been seen among dresses pre
pared strictly for dresses of ceremony—and
the reason is doubtless the greater freedom
and latitude in the exercise or Individual taste
and the acquisition of many beautiful things
in the way of materials and garniture. It can
not be said this season that any one style or
material predominates, excepting that the
foundation for all rich toilettes seem to be
laid in silk or satin, even when veiled with lace
or tulle to giye them a light and diaponous
effect. In fact, diaponous materials are not
much used—not at all, except for young ladies
or debutantes, and in the form of lace. The
preference is for satin, satin rhadames, satin
brocade, satin enriched with embroidery;
plush, plain and watered: and for married
ladies some combination of moire antique,
with satin and velvet.
A fashionable combination consists of a moire
antique train, an embroidered satin front, and
boddice also enriched with embroidery; sides
pannelled with falls of wide lace and loops of
satin ribbon.
A dress worthy of Marie Antoinette consists
of a coat of canary colored satin embroidered
with silver, turned back in broad revers, and
faced with dainty canary colored brocade out
lined with silver thread. Skirt of canary col
ored satin draped with white Spanish point
and ornamented with thistles in their natural
color, with twisted silver stems. A robe dress
of red currant colored satin, and fashioned
with buttons which look like engraved rubies.
The sides show a border extending the entire
length, and round the neck of beaded em
broidery in different shades of ruby upon a
black silk net foundation, which is, how
ever, entirely covered. An artistic
dress made to order is a long gown of mouse
colored velvet, with a moyen-age back to the
waist and broad satin belted front. Tne skirt
is perfectly plain; the sleeves a small leg-of
mutton. full at the top but fitted to the lower
arm. With this dress is worn a deep collar and
cuffs of old lace or an antique necklace of coins
which forms a collar. An “early English”
dress of old gold satin exhibited on the occa
sion of the opening of the Cos operative Dress
Association, has been copied several times to
order in bronze satin, in olive satin rhadames,
and in almond tinted satin. In this also the
skirt is cut plain, but full at the back and gored
at the sides and in front. The boddice is short
and belted ail around; the sleeves long and
puffed at the top.
The conventional evening dress for young
ladies consists of a short, trimmed skirt, the
back draped over a kilted flounce, and the
front shirred or pleated above a deep box
pleated flounce which ascends to the knee
The boddice is a long V shaped basque with
panniered sides forming an overskirt, and the
sleeves are shirred or plaited to the elbow.
Surah In light tints makes up pretty in this
way, trimmed with white lace, and with alter
nate ruffles of silk and lace across the lower
front instead of a box pleated flonnce.
For informal receptions, known as afternoon
teas, there are many novelties which are individ
ualized by the taste and ingenuity of their fair
wearers. Tea gowns differ from the ordinary
visiting dres in being designed especially for
home wear and therefore less restricted by con
ventional ideas. Avery effective toilette of this
description was made recently of dark wine
colored cashmere. The front, from the throat
down, was of wine-colored satin laid in very
fine lengthwise plaits. The skirt from the
waist line was turned back to form revers,
faced with old gold brocade in a small feather
pattern. The sleeves were divided in two large
puffs—one at the top, the second coming over
the elbow—by broad bands of plaited satin.
A cuff of old gold brocade was turned upward
on the lower arm, and supplemented by ruf
fles of old lace. A collar of old lace was ar
ranged for the throat, with a jabot which ex
tended to the waist, the two sides of whicn
were held by clustered loops of old gold satin
Another tea gown which attracted attention
was of terracotta-red Rumchunder silk, anew
soft twilled silk, fine yet thick, which lends it
self most happily to esthetic effects in drapery
and shirring. The front to the waist was for
med of straight shirred puffs alternating with
successive series of narrow ruffles in plaited
lace. The sides were trimmed with a jabot of
the same lace which extended to the bottom
of the skirt, and round the neck, the back
forming a Watteau. With this dress was worn
a small mob cap of red silk trimmed with ruf
fles of white lace.
A pretty dress worn by a lady at an after
noon tea was of mouse colored satin exquis
itely embroidered in silk acd steel The hat
was of gray beaver, the feathers fastened with
a large polished steel clasp. A striking dress
worn also by a visitor consisted of a coat of
red velvet trimmed with silver plaque buttons,
with figures in relief, and vest and skirt of
g ild-colored satin with full jabot of white lace
ornamented at the throat with a cluster of
gold oolored Batin ribbon in narrow loops. The
hat wes of gold-colored satin with narrow in
terior facing and cord of red velvet and gold
thread. The feathers were in different shades
of the gold color. This dress was very becom
ing to a slender and very handsome brunette.
There is something unpleasantly suggestive
in the passion for fiery red and yellow, which
has broken out within the past eighteen
months, and which finds such diversified and
ingenious forms of manifestations. Tb<j sub
tleties of color have never before found such
expression as in the dress ot to-day. But the
employment of bpld bright colors, such as red
and yellow, is not now limited to suggestion, to
garniture, to blending with other colors tn
order to heighten effects or add an illuminating
touch. High reds and full bright yellows are
now used in broad masses T-he red bonnet
trimmed with shaded red feathers, is the bon
net par excellence of the season. The red vel
vet jacket is indispensable to the tone and chic
of a voung lady’s wardrobe, and a terra-cotta
red dress is rarely absent from the evening as
semblage or the box at the theatre or opera.
1 o soften and cone down these gory oilets
there is always the finishing lines of white lace
around the throat 0( about the front. But this
si uply brings the high color into stronger re
lief and makes the wearer a still more con
spicuous object.
There are pale, dainty, neutral tinted little
women wiio are brightened and not vulgarized
by i hese pronounced stylus, but to the majori
ty they are more than “trying.” They are, as
was remarked in the beginning of this para
graph, unpleasantly suggestive.

Mr. Blaine's Presidential Aspira
A Washington special says; “Sec
retary Blaine during all of last
winter, in his conversations with his
close personal friends, intimated very
decidedly that he had given up all

convention. This intention was also

promising his best efforts to secure a
second term for the latter. But circum

to boldly invade this great political do

much ado over the prominent men of

the Southern question from national
politics. He also indicates his belief in
a national policy of liberal aid to develop
