Judv-mm Dei' TVlhi has fallen! If it be a
triumph to record tho slaughter oflnany of oar !
brave soldiers and of tho mutineer*, we have l>een
triumphant. Our Indian war, we must admit, is |
one of sell-defence, and it is said that a war is just |
with those to whom it in necessary. This change !
for the letter in our EMtern belligerent state has
brightened up society (save those who have rela- j
tions at the Heat of war), and even in the metropolis I
the atmosphere is to-day clearer, and the sun is posi
tively struggling forth at the West end, for it has
long since cut the city. There the news from your
side has. to say the least of It, kept tho markets
dull and thrown business generally into a state of
stagnation. The bruins of the Stock Exchange and
their outside friends, owing to the comparative small
shipment of specie, have not realized the rain of
of Danaide. The bnlls have been and arc in a state
of inaction, neither losers nor gainers.
Mulders, suicides, robberies, from street taking
pocket* as they come and on the highway, burgla
ries, swindling* (principally amongst people in the
respectable walks of society), fraudulent bank
ruptcies, seductions and rape will be found, on a
gleaning of the papers by the present mail, not to be
on the decrease. The rule appears to he the excep
tion. and speaks volumes for the state of Englitth so
The Waterloo bridge mystery remains still some
thing secret and hidden. Protestor Taylor has
examined the remains ami clothes, and indeed all
that stands - i evidence, and the verdict of the jury
is the u>" ctuni in such cases, ' murdered by some
person >r persons unknown."
The past and jwwsing heavy gales on the coast
have caiwd and arc causing disasters dire to the
shipping aud the loss of manv lives. As a preven
tive is supposed to be more efficacious than a cure,
lot oa hope for satisfactory results from the new pa
tented invention "for preventing ships from going
on rocfc?." Again, great loss of live? and property
has occurred in the counties of Essex, Kent and
Surrey, by the great floods.
The Arabia yesterday brought us back Mr. Arce
deckne, the worthy Commodore of the Harwich
and Vice Commodore of the London Yacht
Clubs. Iji-st evening Mr. Airedeckne took the
chair at the monthly meeting of the London Club,
where he was warmly greeted, and this morning he
started off for Harwich, where he has been solicited
to represent that ancient borough in Parliament,
owing to the death of Mr. Warburtou (brother of the
late E. Warburton) by suicide.
The (Jueeu has intimated to Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Keeno that she will not this season entertain
her tlieatrical friends at Windsor, owing, no doubt,
to the distressing accounts fr?m Bengal.
There are rumors of a row in the literary world
b^re, in reference to the works of a Mr. Charles
Re.ide, published by Messieurs Bcntley. Mr. Reade,
thouph not an original writer, has, it appears,
adopted "the origiual" plan of "novelling" French
dramas, piny* and vaudevilles. Thus his "Never too
La?e to Meiid" is a free translation of the "Claudia"
of George Sand, and "Les Chercheursd'or de la Cali

? The Theatre* , dr.. fyc.
The continuation of the American crisis fling* a
ahadow over everything here. The knowledge that
even the high rate of discount to which the Bank of
England ban reached lias not prevented upwards of
XfiOO.OOO in gold from bring despatched to New
York, half of which was sent at all events within
the last two weeks, in the very teeth of the riac,
serves to increase the depression of all the commer
cial ciaMO. In addition to this, it in known that the
demand for silver in India is greatly adding to the
complication!* of the money market.
A certain depression of a political character pre
vail* also regarding these interminable Principalities,
which many l>egin aeriooaly to fear will ultimately
pros e the proximate cause of a disturbance of the
exiting amicable relations between Prance and
England. The aorene.* of the government journals
on thia question is, I aasure you, but a faint echo of
what ia said in those political circles from which
public opinion in such matters takes its ri-e. It haa
so long been a favorite idea of these that a Rowmaoi
kingdom ahould be established where French in
fluence might prove as potent an that of Russia at
Athena, that now. when the SulUn has fairly net his
heel ujwn it. and thrown the weight of his influence
directly against the long and intricate skein of
Pram t? Russian diplomacy in the matter, there is a
dispo*i on to olfeuco in France, which, at the pre
aeut moment . is not by any means lessened by
the English difficulties 111 India, even though
the fall of Delhi haa just occurred. Karl Cow
ley, the Hritiah Ambaaaador, is somewliat osten
tatiously aaked to spend a fortnight at Com
piegn e. while the hospitality extended to the Rus
sian Envoy is limited to one week, but notiody is
miaied by any by play of this kind. It is very well
known that MWwivt soreness respecting th Noldo
Waltodilan question does prevail in the imperial
conneil-, that Ix>rd Cowley hi been perfectly mad"
t<> und( rstand a- much, and that the brightening of
Lord Palnier?ton'a Indian prosj* < t* has much to do
with the Cruiui?s of tin EiigUeh Cabinet on the
He~ liid l'aeha's n tnrn to power, under the auspi
ce* at l/ird Stratford de R-dclifle, ia gall and worm- :
wood to the i'mw Kiaston party. in which eateii'iry
may, tn truth, la- comprised the majority of the na
tion. The Crinv-a. it m said, still futn'-s with the j
bl<?sl r,f French aoldier*. The armies of France I
and her fleets have only just quitted the Ea-t, after 1
supporting a heroic conflict. Fram e ha* disbursed
a satn equivalent to ?9$JSMJMQ sterling, and sacri
ficed tOtjMN) men ? a *scrtti< e tluit deserved tnore re
gard than is at iirewent exhibited hv the Ottoman
empire. If Tuikey. it ia said, ?houl?j compromise *o
thoughtlessly the r*?nlt* of this war. it must be
known that France will not allow them to be for
feited .
The Pa if, whose imperial inspiration is undenia
ble, has the following reflection*:? "Only a few
months ago Reachid fell fnsn power rather than
concede to tlx majority of the European Power* the
annulov nt of the illegal elections which had tak n
place ill Moldavia; and; as the natural con
sequence of that event th" principal support
of Rei? hid. Ix>rd Stratford de RedclifJe was com
ft :ied to sacrifice his personal idea* to the clearly
exprew?ed policy of his government. It haa fro- |
qnently br< n said, and it is a fatality which weights |
on the public life of RearMi Pacha. that that *tat<-e
man < aimot e*iat without Lord Redcliffr: on the
other band, the F.nirlish ambasaador cnimot retain
Ms predotniaant influence unless when Keschid is
minister. Th* Porte ha? long struggled against this
two fold influence which has been more injurious to
it than mp *. i| )*. imagined. History is to judge
wheth' r Turkey has w? || und* rstood her part and
her de-'iny and will declare whether the government ,
of the Piute has w< II appreciated the extent of its
obligations towards the Western powers, and par
ticularly towirds France the oldest, and. it may la
Maid. without wounding the susceptibilities of any
one. thi' most, disinterested of its allies. If i^t ?ry is to
atate thai in fhree yetr* which hate followed the
oaoelusion of the treaty of Paris, the Porte has up
reared more occupied in turning to account its
Isnellt* than in accepting it* prescriptions. and that
the remembram e of the services which il has re- <
reived ha? generally appeared rather to emhorass
than to guide It in Its line of conduct. We do not
see that, io reality, the Porte has gained anything
by allowing itself to lie thua led away into a p?th
where more than one man is prepared for
it. Public opinion has by degrees deserted
it, and even ft?l* adoltM at having ever
f?*lt so much interest in Its fate. The
last episode which has jost crowned the long
aeries of intrigues will not restore toTnrkeywhat
she ha* loet in the sympathies of the civilized world.
TT?e laM oiiention which remain* to b<' s?'ttl< d, ac
cording to the solutions indicated In the treaty
of Pans (hat of the Princinalitlea? will shortly b*?
liroaght forward before the Congress. Tlie new com
Mnatem adopted by tie Porte appear* to Indxate an
intention of a struggle. Happily, the European go
vernments do not allow themselves to lie guided
either by the [taaaions or the excitements of the mo
owert snd whatever may he the sense of what baa
just taken p!a< e at Constantinople, it i* eertain that
tbe Western Powera will not for an Instant depart
from that spirit of jastice and moderation which hai
always animated them."
One reason for my quoting the above rather long
extract from the ray*, is that circumstances made
me perjtonally acquainted with the manner of its
composition. Mr. Walewski, on hearing of Reschid's
return to power, Bent for the editor of the Pay* and
desired him to write a leader on the apirit of the
above; after it waa written, the proof sheets were
Bent to him and the last word*, beginning from the
word ."Happily, the European Powers," etc., etc.,
were sddea by the Minister himself, as if he consi
dered that the editor might have gone a little too
near the wind as regarded English susceptibility.
Foreigners are gradually taking up their abode
here for the winter. Apartments aro everywhere
letting on a scale of price# perfectly unprecedented,
and there is no doubt that the great improvements
effected in the capital are gradually producing an
effect on the upper classes of the C ontinent, which
is now beginuing to bear fruit. There is always a
class of nobility in all countries, to whom the luxu
ries of Paris are like the promised land. Spaniards,
Portuguese, Viennese, Russians, nobles from Berlin,
from Rome and Naples, regard it as the Mecca Of
idolatry, to lie periodically visited as a canon of
their faith. The rapidly increasing facilities for
reaching It, the wondrous tastes of the improvements
made, the splendor of the imperial court, the* extra
ordinary political influence obtained by the reigning
monarch since his asceuding the throne of the Ca
pets, and the natural dia|>ot;ition of all to bow down
tiefore the personification of success, will, it may be
presumed, more and more, until a catastrophe occur,
lend to increase the number of luxurious money
spenders, and so keep up the present enormous prices.
I'ertain it is, however, tliat there ia no previous re
cord of similar prices being giveu for furnished
apartment* for the season. ?
Prince Napoleon Jerome Bonaparte, commonly
called the sou of the American Bonaparte, who is
now captain in the Chasseurs d'Afriqne, has left |
Marwilta by the Sinai, for Algeria.
A uew church ia about to be constructed for the
Russian embassy and the Russians rending in
Paris, in the Rue de la Croix, in the Faubourg
St. Flonora. The expense is estimated at 1,000,
000 francs, towards which the Einperor of
Russia has suliscribed 200,000 franca, the Dowager
Empress lOO.OOOf, the Holy Synod 200,000f. Tho
balance will be made up by private subscriptions.
Speaking of churches, tho difficulty which has so
long prevailed altout the English Embassy church is
just now culminating to a point which will decide
its "to be or not to bo." The English government,
rather than the building should fall into the hands
of the Americans, who were ready to purchase it,
gave ?9,000 for it. The House of Commons, how
ever. which holds the purse, refused to ratify the
purchase. Consequently the chapel has been closed,
| and is now advertised for sale in Ualignani. Under
neath the advert isemeiit figures another, calling a
meeting at Meurice'sto decide whether the British re
sidents are disfto*ed to purchase it. rather than incur
the chance or its passing into some unorthodox
hands. A general belief prevails that, seeing the
government, in their eagerness to rescue it from the
sacrilegious hands of the Americans, have given at
least $2,000 too much for it, the English residents will
have nothing to do with it. As a speculation, the
chapel does not stand in the same category as before,
for the Americans have now built themselves a
beautiful place of worship in the Rue de Berri, and
should the Episcopal service be performed in it, it
will of courae draw off many who formerly used to
go to the chapel in the line de Aguerian. Apropos
of the American chapel ? is this the time for any
American congregation to incur an expense of
?10.000 for a place of worship on this side tne Atlan
tic? is there a probability, under existing circum
stances, of there heing in Paris a sufficient
WHMikl |0 fill if * raw already prevails
that this chapel, even before it is finished, will bo
brought to the hammer.
To turn from chapels to theatres. The Cirque has
liecome famous bv a piece called " l'Amiral do l'Es
eadre Bleue."' The fate of the English Admiral
Byng, in 175(5, is well known. Sent with an insnflfi
! cient force to relieve the island of Minorca, when the
French had poured in an overwhelming force, a coun
cil of war was held by the officers of his squadron,
and unanimously declared that to afford relief was,
uudci thci ?ircum*tape?*. impracticable. Byng. how
ever, made the attempt and was unsuccessful. This
failure raised an immense clamor in England, !>oth
against Admiral Byng and the ministry, and tho lat
ter, to save themselves from public indignation, base
ly sacrificed their Admiral. The factious clamor of
his enemies, warmly seconded by the efforts of an
incendiary press, succeeded in obtaining his condem
nation to be shot, and he was accordingly executed
at Port-mouth in sight of the fleet, meeting hU |
death with manly fortitude and protesting to his j
last breath against the injustice of his sentence, i
Well, all this has l**en dr.imatised after >( French
fashion at the Cirque, t?nd attracts overflowing houses
every night. Poor Byng is made a lover and an un
fortunate one. his rival being a certain Frenchman,
called Captain de Frontenac. who, of course, carries
off the lady's affections. Then we have a duel,
in which, though the Admiral proves victori
ous, he peneriwisly sfiares his rival to become
the hut-bund of his love ; notwithstanding
which, however, the unlucky Admiral becomes
the victim of various treacheries, which at leugth
end in bringing about the catastrophe. The part of
the bluff aristocratic English Admiral is played to
the life, but the other incidents of the drama? all
English ?s they are ? arc as usual most ludicrously
burlesqued hy the French, who. for snirht they know
of English habits, might as well have been living on
the shores of the Yellow Ses.

The state of the King'* health hat U-oii gradually

i the exert l*? of hi* regal function*. In the most fa
vorable view of the c? ?*>. a long interval of quiet and
j ivixwe will be required to restore bis intellectual
| faculties to their equilibrium.
Under these circumstance* it becomes imperative
ly necessary to take mime decided step* in the Regen
cy question. At present all public business is at a
*taii<l.and everything i* at sixes and sevens; for
Pnuvia, though nominally a constitutional monar by.
i* -till to impregnated with the tradition* of ab*<>
' lutism that nothing can be done without the person
al interference of ihe sovereign. It happens that
this country ha* never Iwn similarly situated be
fore; long, a* the Kingdom of Prussia exists, none
of its rulers have been in the predicament to which
the present monarch is reduced, and there has never
even been a minority. so that no precedent w to lie
found In its annals which oooM lie acted on in this
MMNt Ml. From bis position a* ht'ir apparent, how
ever the Prince of Prussia would undoubtedly have
the first claim to the Kearney , and mini?ter* here pro
pose to convoke an extra session of the legislature,
to lny the state of thing* liefore them, and to obtain
Ike consent and cooperation of the representative!
(if the nation to the appointment of hi* Riyal High
ne*? to that office. Tnis would certainly Is- in stric
M? ordance with the forms of constitutional govern
tnent; it is what was done in England in the reign
of Oeorge III. and recently again In Hwcden , where
the States general have approved uf Ifcc nomination
of the i rown prince to l>e Regent ?luring the illne?s of
his fatber. It is understood, however, that the
Prince of Prussia demur-' to this pro|M>*ai: he looks
upon the consent of thet'hambers as su|iererogat<iry.
and think* it preferable to he appointed Regent pure
ly and "imply by the King's siirn manual. If he ac
cepts the government, be say*, it must be from the
hands of brother himself." Now it I* easily seen
tliat *ii> !i a course would be open to grave objec
tion* If 1he King s mental faculties are sufficiently
unimpaired f<* him to select a Regent, there
is no reason why he should not continue
to govern in pmprta prtitma; or if the choice
depends entirely upon him, he may just as well
ap|ioint the Queen , or Prin< e Chariee, or any
otbci member of his family, and pass over the Priu'.e
of Prussia altogether. On the other hand, if the
Chamber* are summoned then cannot be the le*?t i
doubt but that he would be saluted Regent by accla
mation, and it i a no wonder, therefore, that nia un- ;
willingness to resort to their cooperation should be
attributed to a dislike of anything savoring of repre- :
sentative forms of government, and should revive
rumors prejudicial to him that had long been forgot
ten. It is undoubted that he has never taken the
oath on tho constitution , and that hints were thrown
out at the time that he declined doing so in order to
be at liberty to alter such points as were not accord
ing to his taste, in case of his accession to the
throne. For my part, I must say that I consider
such suspicions to be entirely without founda
tion. I attach little importance, indoed, to the
viUtitit of liberalism wnich he has displayed
rather ostentatiously for the last few years, and
in which he only follows the traditional
policy of heirs apparent from time immemorial; but
it is notorious that the events of 1848 made a deep
impression upon him, and I cannot imagine that he
would venture upon a line of conduct which, sooner
or later, might lead to their recurrence. Besides
this, his most confidential advisers are men closely
connected with the liberal conservative party, and
it is to be presumed that they will exert all their in
fluence to deter him from stens that would excito
universal disappointment auu reprobation. His
strange behavior is perhaps merely owing to the
principle of military subordination that has been in
stilled into, him from infancy. He considers the
King as a sort of generalissimo, and the nation as an
army, the command of which he is not allowed to
take wlthont special orders from his superior.
There is a report in circulation that previous to
the King's illness his Majesty had signed a document
delegating his authority to tne Prince in case of any
thing happening to him, and that this paper
had been entrusted to the safe keeping of the Queen.
The well known character of the King makes such
an act highly improbable, as he Is the last person
in the world to resign his power as long as he is
able to retain it; but I am by no means sure
whether a document of this kind will not be eventu
ally produced, in order to put an end to a state of
things that is beginning to create general uneasi
ness. The royal family are still assembled at Pots
dam, in anxious expectation of the denouement of
this singular decree. A constant exchange of tele
graphic RMUN is kept up with the Emperor of
llussia and the Empress dowager, who is stated to
be profoundly afifected by her brother's malady.
The Prince of Prussia, by the way, is doubly con
nected with the imperial family or Russia ? his wife
being a cousin of tne late Czar Nicholas; notwith
standing which relationship she is represented aa
being much more favorable to English than to Rus
sian policy.
Townrds the end of last week the money market
assumed a more encouraging asjicct; secuni
ties of all descriptions were looking up, and
hopes were entertained that wo had seen the
worst of the crisis. On Monday, however, a change
came o'er the spirit of the dream. The disastrous ac
counts from America, showing that the pressure
there, instead of subsiding, had l>ecome still more in
tense, and the intelligence that the Bank of England
had raised the rate of discount to 8 per cent spread
terror and consternation among the speculatorf. and
the slight improvement that had taken plar. previous
to the receipt of these unwelcome tiding was suc
ceeded by a heavy fall. It is feared that the Bank
of Prussia will have to follow the example of its
English and French colleague-, and that the "wild
cat " ba"l:.? which have sprung up htely will have to
suspend their payments altogether. Aa yet. no ex
tensive failures have been heard 01 here, and in thil
respect our Bourne is generally distinguished from
that of Vienna, where some ol the brs? houses have
gone b? the board; but it i.? impossible to toll what
catastrophes may ensue it the monetary perturb*
ions continue much longer.
After the remarkable summer we have had. we are
now experiencing a still more extraordinary autumn.
By this time the cold weather has generally set in.
and there is either a sharp frost, or a Scotch mist
that drenches people to the skin and makes them
glad to keep in doors. Tlii? year, on the contrary,
the weather is like spring; yesterday the tbermome
I ter showed 64 degrees in the shnde, and the public
[ promanades arc crowded with the heau mondr
equipped in their summer costumes, und biwking in
a sun of June-like splendor. The chestnuts are in
full leaf for the second time this season, and in some
places the apple trees are covered with fresh blos
soms. In America, where you are accustomed to
Indian summer, such phenomena might not excite
any particular attention, but here they are quite
unprecedented. The "oldest inhabitant cannot re
collect anything to equal them, and if the comrt
bad not pattied oft' so innocuously we should
certainly U keve that the end of the world was at

In tlie forenoon of yesterday the Prince came over
from Sant-Houci by in extra train, and received
Biiron Monteuflel and the wholn ministry at his na
lace, thus entering formally upon th?* exercise of his
functions aa temporary head of the government. It
will N- ?>eii at a glance, however, that his position is
very difficult to what it w<sild have been if he had
actually lieen proclaimed Regent. He Is only en
trusted with tlie iidiiniiistration of affairs for a very
limits d period. which may even be suddenly curtail
ed if the King should be found able -or should mi
agine himself able? to resume the functions of his
office previous to the expiration of the time specified.
It follows, of course, that the Prince of Prussia is

"Prince's friends'' are in great consternation there
?t, and, Indeed, a more unlucky concatenation of
events could not jx.xsihly have happened for them.

Tne King's bodily health Is evidently improving,
and it is stated that .1 -> >? >n as he is able to travel he
will take a journey to Italy, which has been advised
1 1 y th?> physicians, in the h ?(,.? thai the mil I climate
tided by perfect repoxe. may tend to accelerate his
recovery. As to the restoration of his mental facul
ties, the mint contradictory opinions are expressed
oo this subject. Aicoitluig t j wuc agouut-i, tua
disease is of neb a nature that perfect convalescence !
is out of the question ; he may restate for aome I
time longer, but hia existence will be confined to the
mere animal function*, those of the mind being radi
cally and Irretrievably disordered. On the other
hand, it is affirmed that his mind lias only expe
rienced a temporary shock, which has shaken but
not overthrown it, and that, as hia frame regains
its former vigor, change of scene, careful uuraing,
and the appliances of the medical art, will gradually
effect the restoration of his intelectual powers. Con
sidering the severity of the attack he ha* just got
over, and that for several days together bin dissolu
tion seemed to be hourly impending, it is obvious
that his constitution must still be remarkably stronir.
and the intimate connection between body and
mind would lead one to infer that the rebound of the
former from sickness to health, would not be with
out a corresponding Influence on the latter.
You will notice the emphasis laid by the Prince of
Prussia on his "observing the constitution and laws
of the country." The passage was probably intro
duced in consequence or the remarks that had been
passed on his having omitted to tako the oath on
the constitutional charter of Prussia at the timo of
its inauguration, and on his avoiding, as if pur
posely, to enter the First Chamber where the oath
is administered to the members preliminary to their
taking their seats. Not that I imagine the Prussian
charter was ever in any serious danger from him; in
the original form, indeed, in which it waspromulgated,
after the coup d'etat of November, 1848, and even
after the settlement of January, 1860, it oontained
democratic elements that must nave been as displeas
ing to him an they were to his brother ; but since
then it has been so carefully weeded of these unsa
vory ingredients that it can ofl'er nothing unpalatable
to the most conservative taste. The two Chambers
have shown themselves such useful instruments in
the hands of government that if they were not occa
sionally rather obstreperous about money matters
the King of Prussia would actually enjoy more power
now than he ever did before the revolution, and it
would be worse than a crime? it would be a fault ?
for him to dismiss them. At the same time it must
be admitted that, whatever their shortcomings, they
are patterns of manly independence when compared
to the legislative assemblies of France ; that they
still afford the nation an organ for expressing its
wishes and uttering its complaints ; and that if the
position occupied by Prussia in Rnrope, though not
so brilliant as it might have been had another course
of policy been pursued sinee 1849, is even now
higher than would be justified by her material re
sources, it is chiefly owing to the fact that, though
surrounded by despotisms, she still retains the forms
of constitutional freedom.

Fashions for November.
[From LeFollet.]
Tho niako of dresses is an important question at the
present moment. If things take their natural course
basques seem destined to be quite laid aside ; they are now
scarcely evor allowed in full dross, but arc sufficiently
adopted in walking and home dress to insure their toler
ance for one more season. This affords a good opportunity
for thoee ladles to whom they are unbecoming to discon
tinue them.
Willi regard to trimmings, flounces are quite as much as
ever in favor; they arc sometimes made double; and,
when single, are trimmed with velvet, ruches, chicoreea,
lace, or a flat plaiting of ribbon, or with the same mate
rial as the dross. Trimmings at tho aide* of tho skirts
are as much seen as flounces, but arc considered quite no
gllge when simply composed of bands of velvet , or of a dar
ker stripe of black and white checks; A half breadth of a
nude than the drees, covered witli an open passementerie,
with Orecques, arabesques, or with a trimming of velvet
arianged like the letter V reversed, graduated in size from
tho bottom of tho dress to tho waist, is much approvod of.
This half breadth is generally edged by a rucho of narrow
lace fringe, galon or moss Irimniiug. A croxsway band of
black velvet, from six to eight Inches wide at the bottom,
finishing in a point at the waist, cither edged with lace or
not, has a very good effect. With this, on the body of the
dress, should be bands of velvet to match, wide on the
shoulder and diminishing to a point at the waist. Another
very pretty trimming may be formod by three rows of
velvet bows graduated in sise, or three rows of buttons,
or macarons of velvet, surrounded by frillod narrow lace.
The same trimming, with smaller buttons, &c. , is repeat
ed on the body and on the plaits of tno sleeves, dome
dresses are trimmed en tablier.
hi Bome of tho rich silks and flew materials now ap
|-?uiDg these trimmings are woven in; thus, on a ground
of dark blue, green or dove color are quillos of black vel
vet, which, wlien fringed at tho bottom, suit well for a
double skirt. On lighter and bright colors, flounces of
black lac.e are so wull imitated that they almost require to
bo touched to be quite sure they are only a pattern on the
dress. On others the pattern is en tabler, with bows
also in the design. Others in shaded and black stripes,
with laco arranged en echelle on the lower stripes.
Fancy rejw, poplins andcotelines are al.io manufactured
>in the same manner, representing a half breadth in
stripes of various widths, mixed, or in a mixture of oo
jors suitable to the ground of tho dress; sometimes only
of two. the iwilteru being in the darker color. IJ^ht ma
tuna's an- quite abandoned for the present, and are very
often replaced by poplins, which, whether plain or m
plaid, always make a useful and cheerf.il looking dress

bright colors, gurh a.-, ctrt.se, yellow or blue, have a
cb*rni:nt; effect Flowered droguets, veloutiuex aud Kug
I sh bareges, are also worn. Black silks of all kinds are
more thin over in demand. It is said that black satin will
dccidedly regain its former favnr. and, in company with
velvet, will tagc its place for evening droas.
As wo havo heforo noticed . the Algerien burnoua will
be, for negligt . the clMk of the season; it replaces tho
talma, of which, to say the truth, it is a modification , ouly
it ia fuller at the bottom, and longer, and is invariably ac
companied with a hood. Pome burnous are made without
seams. some with scams en the shoulders, and others with
a scam down the whole length of tho back, which slightly
defines the figure, and disposes the fulness only where it
is required. The IwxhI is aoinetimes made flst by means
of a double seam round, forming a point in the middle, at
the end of which is a long tassel of mohair, or Unas silk :
the miter part of tho hood is cut up half way, and turned
back in a reversed V trimmed with two tassels, to
match that on the |*uut. Sometimes it is folded back
twice, resembling a round berthe. Others are simply the
old round hood drawn round with a ribbon or cord with

apart : sometimes with a headed frill nearly eight inches

The military administration of our colony was an m
doubted necessity during the entire period of our oe?
quest. But that period has passed, and wo do not bnliee
that we exaggerate matters when we say that It was fc
compatible with the devolopnment of colonization Tb
is easily explained ; bow could persons accustomed to
civil rule, and to all its liberty, confront of frco will a
the exactions and rigor of military rulef Why haa tt
stream of emigration flowed toward America, neglectas
fruitful Algeria, which lies at the doors of fNMW Sim
ply beca tt*e the cvlnnitl knew that in America he would me
vrtth free institutions and a rxnt juid for hit labor and a
tivity. Could we only have offered similar advantages
the immense masses of emigrant* that liave pass*
through Franco on tbvir war to our ports of tho north, ti
problem of colonization would hare long since been solve
Nothing now opposes the accomplishment of this retort
The recent conquest of Kabylia has crowned the militr.
action in the colony. If wo wish to obtain hands for Alg
ria, if wo wish to colonize the ronntry , we must give
capital and to emigration the guarantees which can aloi
he afforded by a civil administration. As long as the p?
spective of a military rulo lies before tho eyos of en
grants, they will abstain from colonixing Algeria, in spi
of the efforts of economists, politicians, journalists ai

be applied to flour ; but we think wo may say that tt
interpretation of the intentions of the government is a
well founded, as if the free export be allowed it will

Since the desire is to prevent too great a reduction
