A WORD OX TWO OZ TEs JrASrIOE.
The great secret of a lady's dreaStg well lies i
her knowledge of her age,means, audher polatsof
good and bad feature had figure. A thorough
study of these three things will enable her always to
dress in a style attractive and becoming, while
she can eaily keep within the limits marked by
But above all things, be fastldlously meat and
cleanly In your apparel; let everything about you.
whether Intended to be seen or unseen, be fresh
and delicate, and as fue In material as your purs
will allow. Do not confine your extravagance in
fne uaterial to your outer dress-rather let it be
the otherwise. An innate lady always will, ii
either hes to be plain and rather coarse, let It
be the outer dress.
The most marked change we see is in the pan.
ler; instead of the round full puff. we see it now
open at the beck with two pointed ends or
wings, the tat sash with its endless bows :tllng
the open space ; the fronts of the panler turn back
or are reversed. The skirts are still gored and worm
not full, the fullness being altogether in the panler
or tunic, the corsage plain and high, whether
worn as surplice, or trimmed to simulate square
neck: sleeves loose coat, or puffs. You cannot
flource and rufle too much to be in the fashion,
thocgh we think you can do too muooh of it to be
pretty in appearance.
A very fi e white India mull, made up for a
bride, attracts d our attention. It was made apron
front, the back sad sides not gored but quite fall,
gathered 'n the belt ; the apren was covered with
grsaduated flounces to the knee; the lower one, just
above tLe brm, was about a finger and a half
d~sp. ara *u"a eraduae!y narrowed, until the up
per flounce was nt mmre than an inch and a half
deep-a double ellfte formed by a cord running
through the mlddle of it, and trimmned on each
edge nith Vaeercien edging, set on the skirt,
ru,',g ý c"rn *r e esies of the apron and round
the k',rt inst above the hem, which
was two tingers deep ; the skirt was
pc fec!y I ;!. oherwise--corsage, so-
jlice tformed of Valencien inserting and slightly
full Il:fA cf tl.e mull, sleeves, puffs Valencien
lace es !r!' s at the wrr!---a charming dress.
In wmea:g yo(,ur dresses, exercise some judg
meat afd taste for yourself; because fashton says
a tiler is to be worn, do nut adopt it, unless it is
eultable to your face or figure. The bn,ode, the
brunette, te stout, the s'enler, cannot adopt one
groat general r:le and go by it. Consult you mir
ror and see if the long casaque, or the puffed
punier, would lock best, or if a perfectly plain
erit, at d adopt which is the most becoming ; and
an elderly lady shoeod certain:y wear the plain
suit. There is something so urd'tnified in an old
est lady wearing these abort walking suits; they do
'or not h ok so'eable on them even if they are con
In bonnets there is but little new. We saw one
r' sfyle that struck os ets somewhat infringing on the
I, tiny excu-es ror hornets now worn ; it was nearly
2; as iage epa;y, as those worn lately, ans; had a
) diadem ratied nearly two inches, set back about
two inches from the brim and the space filled with
'S flowers and lace. It was pretty and it was very
ia, becoming to the faces of several we saw try It on.
SThe Facchon, with a coronet of leaves flowers, and
the diadem, seem most in favor. It is simply a
tl Itattcr of taste in the trimming of these shapes,
'25i an abundance of flowers being the one article of
at4 faith needed. The veil, it of net, is attached to
the back of the bonnet and thrown forward;
s it of thicker material to be worn as protection
90 from san and dust, not as beautifers ; it is worn
'01 with a strong string run through the hem and tied
on. Those unsightly knots worn at the corners of

Squir I et :e. They are trimmed with lace or
,j flowcrs, or straw fringe, just as one may fancy;

or rosees being quite the favorite.
,, ,aw ats tte reamn nrr uutruor sports and ex
00 ercices i.es arrived, a word or two on riding habits
would perhaps not be amiss. There Is no more
Spea.ant wry of taking the fresh air and a health.

3 iop on a fine h.ce. Driving is all very well in its
way, but the ride is far preferable, aend that you
;:Z may crj. y It in comfort, a little attention to your
dress is necessary. When the weather il not too
warm, a light (uality of ladies' cloth makes the

S But we tih;uk that piqun In deep buff, would
make a pretty summer habit, and it has the ad.
vantsge of being fresh whenever it comes in from
tl re h.nunrree. GCrey linen also makes up well,
being cool and pleasant, and not showing the dust
at all. It is excellent for the country.
I::n .L.d cow for a few words of counsel in making
' the habit. In the first piecoe, out your skirt a reea
sonable length, not over a foot and a half longer
than a dress that just touches the ground. A trail

O, Colondl-I still continues to be exlbited at
the above place as a working model ofthe only
man who has been In Washington wlthL the last
six months who didn't want an offe. lie handy
for Gen. Great, for when be Is overru; as he is
every day, by these parasites, he forte a chain
gang and sends them up to see for iemselves,
with their own eyes, the greatest curicity outside
the penitentiary. I have borne this berg gazed at
with the utmost composure; I have listened to
comments on my fair form and exquiste personlI
beauty with the utmost sangfroid, (sng froid is

perfect composure and meekness, ans the euper
intendent announced the other daythat models

years! He Is to begin on the first sr years very
soon, and I shall have to be " knochid down! "
It may be sweet, yes, tout suite, to tde for one's
country, as the poet says; but to be knocked
down is " too much for good nature,' as the play
says. Besides, I have been "sold" tines enough,
and I don't want any more sells. If he superin

who knows whose hands I might fall hto? Some

I government might bid me in on account of my
tallies., and make a lighthouse of me.
G n. Grant comes to see me almost every day to
I refresh himself. He says, "Head, you are the
ottly mant& in Wsshington, sure, who don't want a

I know it's next door to making a rate of my

drinker will venerate my tudgment fter I say it.
I know that I am wrong, and that oughtn't to
act so. But it's truth ; and truth es magna and

fond of whisky.
Who the devil cares whether he's fad of it or
not ! methinks I hear a voice observe.
Don't you, amiable reader? Don't pu, honey

If you don't care, save yourself tearcnble of

won't know. Only don't flare no; it sn't well
But it's a bad plan, I've found, to sty before
you get started : so clk, clk, clk-get ayon lazy
e Pegasus! you broken winded pet of theMdues in
a beer-wagon ! Get along, sir !
I don't like whisky. Whether It be tht I hare
an lnnate repugnance, or wthther it b that I
d have no peculiar predilection, I haven'tiulte de
termined; but I know that the smell i uoplea.
sant and the taste-well the taste Is shply de
Stestable. I sometimes get some of f in my
Smouth, and whenever I do, you had btter be

My friend Pchwebnsnoot Von Rater,the cele
brsted etymo!ogist, says that ' whsaky" Is
1Gaelic. Now we all know that Gaelic is merely
etrmological for 8cottc, and V. tute la those
h three words has eased my mind of a lorden. I

t reasson is my faith in human natture; which is
almost equal to my charity, and that i another
reason; and the third and great comma:daeat ia
Sthat he that doubts is damned, and as Idon't de
e sire to be damned, I prefer not to dotut. But.
, above all, I hate to doubt a Scotchne. A
Scotcebman is such a confiding creature ; he is s-,
urenspecting; he tells you th,'ngs with 0 perfect
g a faith that yon will helieve them. Yes it huots
o me to doubt a Bootchmsn. To my sWry, hiw
ever. I boight some whisky of a Sthmaer.

And now a little advice as to the use of whisky.
You must take a bottle ot whisky with you wb
d you start ona journey. This rule is Invariable,
Sespecially if yen go horseback.
On such cccaesions even the mildest of men find
it necessary. It don't at all matter that you may
Snever tcch it at other times. Have out the sad
e die bag: pet your bottle-a flat one is best;
9 fill it; cork it tight; stuff it away. It looks work
h niamlike-and then think of snake-bites. Take
care not to let more than five miles pses without
d looking "ysteriou and asking your companion if
he wont "try a little of that?" (He probably
e will.) Just here any small joke will come in very
g well. Something expressive of your disgust for
water, say; or something caluolated to imply that
you principally live on whisky-when at horoe;
and that the only objection yon have to rain is its
watery character-or that water is very gooe for
navigation: or-indeed anything--so it's original
and very funny.
If you have no companion, why of course all of
the above can be disregarded, and you can leave
your bottle In your saddle-bags, without disturb
lug yourself to break In on your every day habits.
S And now to my young friends in the city.
° The ugh I am at present a habitant of the forest, a
commoner with fature in her wildest moods,
i though I now dwell in Jxnpt.. I have not always
't been so reserved. I have known the whirls of
e dissipation, and have even come in contact with
the vortex of excitement. So hearken to me,
youth of New Orleans !
WLhen you are invited to "have scmething" at
awkins' s-and you are rery young, that is-I
would suggest that you "have it straight," and
pay no attention to the tumbler of ice-water the
barkeeper puts out with the liquor; this will give
you the appearance of being aocustomed to the
thing, and is almost equivalent to side.whiekers.
VH hen you are the Inviting party, on no account
ever forget yourself so far as to ask how much it
t Is. Put down a pill for something more than you
suppcre it to be, and If it should chance not to be
erough the man will let you know it.
r It is even better though to nod at him and amy
unconcerneoly, "This is mine." Of course you
lbould have been in there before, so that he may
at least know your face; any demur would evi
dently be awkward.
And always, my young friend. look solemn
when yon drink. It is, in fact, rather an awful
ceremony you are taking part In. You are dolng
s mething which may be the final means of your
utter destruction ; so act as befits the occasion
ard look so!emn. Besides it's the c ;rrect thing to
a do; and nobody but an irredeemable greenhorn.,
a perfect "ultimar, dim" Joskin, wears his conc
tenance otherwise than in melancholy at such fos
tive seasons. If you doubt what I say, go to the
next e ffiie.ouee and remark the revellers.
e Yes, whisky is a curse to the old-I've heard
'em often, and some of these old fellows are per
fect rippers-it is a blasting simeonand aremorse
lesn, conscience stricken constrictor to the more
yi otlfu!. It makes the widow and the orphan to
mourn, and the strong man it robe of hi straength
and causes to fall in the gutter quite frequently.
But it is not on themse grounds that I object to
whisky. No, Mr. Editor, for I never was a widow
V nor an orphan, at least I never was a female
t orphan, nor was 1 ever a very strong mano; and
besides, we don't have any gutterain our metropo
lia to fail into even if I was-except to the bosses,
- and nobody would be fool enough to climb up on
top of a house just to fall in the gutter when he
could every bit s easily go out and lie in the mid
a die of the street; that is, I don't think he would.
y ounless he was what I cll regular beastly, and that's
a what I never get, thank thae Lord!
I No, Mr. Editor, the reason I don't like whisaky is
a girply because lI ain't fond of it. nmillaiting as
the confession is, I make it. I don't like whisky,.
r that's the truth. As 1 have already ininuated, let
a truth be spoken whatever the coincidences. Fial

Setme teackblder of the New Orleass, Jats d Gr
whetenm miE Ued Cempes:
Gestimewe-I have the honor to smbmit, for a
your Inormatlon sad consideration, the present m
annual report of the condition of the road sa nd
management of the affairs of the company to the 1
28th February last, the termination of Its fSeol to

I made to the governor and Legislature of Lois!
sra, on the 30th of December last, a report of the
reelipts, expenditures and geeeral condition of a
the company to the 30th November, 1868, from
which I shall extract in all matters not materially
changed snoe that period.
The road-bed and rolling stock of the company
have been much improved lince the lmat annual
report, and will bear a favorable comparleon with
those of any road in the South. No accidents of
any serlous nature have occurred during the last d
year, and the prospects of the company will be. f
come brighter as the country recovers from the
prostration of business resulting from the late A
Two passenger and two freight trains leave and
amrrie at New Orleane daily. A sleeping oar runs
through, to sad from Louisville, everyday. Bimi.
lar arrangements will soon be made to Columbus, tl
Ky.. and to Chattanooga, and one or more pas. a
seeger cars will be added thereto whenever the d
travel on those routes will require it. Moreover, a
a patented seat, (Blood's), with a movable back, y
is being introduced in the peasenger oars of this 0
company, which will greatly relieve the fatigue a
of travelers during a long ourney, and will enable
them to rest almost as comfortably as in a sleep
The entire motive power and rolling stock of the
company consisted, on the 28th February last, of a
31 locomotives, 481 cars of all IInds, and 30 pairs
of lumber trucks-amply sfncflent for the imme- c
diate wants of the company. The repairs of the "
road and renewal of the rolling stock have
been paid for from the proceeds of the road. 7
The crib-work across the swamps and prairies, t
from Pass Manchac to near Pontchatouls, are a
constant souroe of expense in repairs. It has b
I been thought advisable to fill up with earth said
crib-work, and to raise the track above overflow d
from the river or the lake. A proper steam exz d
cavator has been purchased lately, with which 0
the work can be done at a moderate cost. ri
After much trouble and annoyance, a daily
through freight line to and from Louisville has n
been established, under the supervision of a gene
ral manager of undoubted experience, activity, in.
telligence and honesty. The most satisfactory re
suits are expected from this arrangement, and, if
successful, as it is hoped, the same system will be
applied to the other routes, Northern and East.
ward, on which through freights are only ooa
slonally received. tr
By the Louisville route freights will de deliv
ered here from Boston, New York. etc., in from
nine to ten days, and at an average price for
light and valuable goods cheaper than per
During the put year, to February 28th, 1869, C
the freight and passenger earnings have been $1, d
144,213 657, averaging 895,351 13 per month, not.
withstanding the unusually wet weather of the t
last winter, which has materially affected the re
oeipts of the road. f
The lowest earnings for any one month (Jane) r
was $57,809 25, and the highest was (for Decem. i
ber) $146,108 95. The mail earnings for the twelve t
montna nave amounted to 5z2.34s 1t. o
The cost of operating the road, 65 6-10 per cent. C
of the gross earaning, will compare favorably with t
that of sny road of the some length (206 miles), 1
and which is usually over 60 per cent. The per 1
centum on this road would have been materially b
decreased, had our anticipations of business been e
We have funded In this city and New York, to b
28th February, 1869. 18 275 coupons of our first h
mortgage bohds, which matured during the war,

$268,000 worth,) being all the sterling coupons to a
be funded. There remains to be funded in the n
United States of the retire amount $117,2;0. o
The total indebtedness of the company, (float. I
Ing and bonded.) including all estimated interests ti
on personal accounts and bills payable, cannot
now exceed $4,750,000, which can be readily o
managed with the receipts of the road, estimated P
at 81,500,000 per annum. h

The commerce of New Orleans being injuriously
efiected by the heavy charges in freights. dray.
ages and other expenes attending the receipts or
shipments of goods, It behooves allI transportation
companies to devise means of reducing those
charges to a minimum. The New Orleans. Jack
son and Great Northern Railroad Company has
already made great annual reductions In her
Ireight eharges sinoe the war, and will continue
to do so as rapidly as circumstances will permit.
A great savirg In drayage alone can he obtained
by continuing the road to the river, either within
the limite of this city or of Jefferson City, thence
down the riverfront to the Pontchartrain Railroad
depot, at the foot of Girod street. A dray oziad
of fourth clas freights from the river to the
railroad depot (a distance of about NI mile) costs
about as much as the freight on the railroad from
New Orleans to Pontchatola (4 mOles ) which iL
nearly equal to one, quarter cost of transportation
over the whole length of the road, and drayage on
fractional loads (which contitute generally the
orders of planters and private families,) is nearly
equal to the freight from New Orleanor to Canton.
If this extension were made re could be able
to connect with the Pontcbertrain Railroad on the
river, and to esetablh a depot opposite Gretna for
the receipt of cattle, ete., from the Opelousas
railroad. We would also parss close by the grain
elevator at the foot of Harmony street, which
r would enable no, as soon as the Misatisippi Ceon
trae Railroad shall have been continued to Padn
cah, and a bridge contructed there across the
Ohio river, (probably in about two years) to bring
down grain from Illinois and the West. when the
Ohio and Upper dMississppi se either frozen or
Stoo low for navigatol, which is the case several
months in the year. We have been trying in vain
for the last year to get the right of way to the
river from the City Council of New Orleans. Be
ing unr oeslful, we endeavored to obtain it from
e the Legislature, which had granted It at Its pre
ceding session to the ew Orleans, Mobile aso
Chattanooga Railroad, a new company4n which
the State of Louliana and city of Nerw Or
lean own tore stock: whereas, they are in
terested In this company, the first to the ex
tent of 64 000 shares, and the latter to that
of 80,000 shares. I regret to Inform you that our
efforts in the Legislature were attended with no
better success than with the City Council, who
t ave our petition stil pending before them.
The question of the extension of the road north
of Canton ha occupied a large share of the ttesn
r tion of the board during the past year both on sac
count of the chatter obligations and the litrins!o
Smerts of the enterprise. The road has invested
north of Canton $541,000, which is at present ut
terly unproductive, and even deteriorating from
the action of the weather.
