The Daily Times newspaper did not
appear this morning as per announce
ment. A longer recess was necessary to
get all the appliances in order. To-inor
t w, I believe, is appointed for its debut.
There is some anxiety to see the plat
f .nu upon which this organ will stand.
l'he Episcopal Annual Convention as
-cmbiuu here to-day in St. Peter's church,
Sharp atieet. I observed a large attend
ance of delegates. Rev. Bishop Whit
tingham presiding, by virtue of his office.
He delivered his usual address, which
exhibited the affairs of the Church in a
hiihly prosperous and healthful condi
tion. Several subjects of interest, but
none of very exciting character, will I*
brought forward for discussion. Its ses

and on Sunday, a number of strange min

The races over Herring Run Course
commence next week. Fine sport is an
ticipated. An effort, I am told, will be
ina<lw to render this amusement fashion
able, Ly getting the ladies to attend. The
sport is beautiful, hijrhly exciting, and of
a character calculated to please fair au
ditors. Until, however, gambling, thim
ble-riding, little jokerizing, drinking,
lighting, and rowdyism, shall have been
eradicated Ironi race courses, no lady can
or will attend. Scenes that meet her eve,
a~, now conducted and practised, are un
suited and unbecoming either to modesty
or virtue. Frail nymphs *f the pave aie

races with impunity. The course is said
to br in rine order. It is expected that
a very large number of strangers will

oi gentlemen and genteel people, we shall
be infested with "black legs." pick
pockets. and other personages belonging
to the same category. A timely caution,
therefore, for honest, unsuspecting coun
trymen. to look out for their pocket-books,
watches, JiC.. may not be amiss. A good
ly proportion of Congressmen and grave
Senators are expected over, who can thus
while away the recess.
A beautiful lady, of all things in the
world, is most attractive and bewitch
ing ?e.-peciaiiy so when the fresh tint of
youth :s upon her lovely cheek, and love
sparkling in her eye. Such a being I
met the other day while walking in the
fashionable part of the city. She was
probably eighteen or nineteen, and is
generally accompanied by a female the
counterpart of herself. She wore the
form of a Venus, stepped majestically
a.> a ?1ueen, and looked lovely in every
feature. Iler tyes were of the raven,
her skin like alabaster, and teeth like
pearls. A shrewd guesser may form some
idea of the lovely damsel alluded to.
ST A T?Ui'?BA3CK HA.1.
We will describe the daughter of the
nosi. a very fair specimen of her sex in
Damascus. Her eyes are beautifully
dark, her eyelashes, eyebrows and hair,
of a glossy jet black, hangs down her
back and reaches nearly to the ground
in a succession of plaits, each termi
i .ting with black silk braid, knotted
and intrrw ven with various sized golden
< < ins : her features (excepting the eyes)
ar? small but compact. The nose is
?>re'.ian, the lips cherry, and slightly
pouting. the chin dimpled, the form of
the face oval, and the complexion clear,
with a rosy tint. Tlie bast and iigure
ni. unexceptionable, the arms comelv,
il *? wrists and ankles well turned, and
<.i.e feet and hands perfect models for a
sculptor; yet this is one of the many
i nde.-cript beings that we encountered
with Izrr and veil in the street. Her
:a< e anrl ligure are well set off by the
'.cad dress and oriental costume. On the
;? p of her head she wears a small red
mp, which is encircled by a handsomely
li'.wcTc I handkerchief, and over the lat
ter strings of pearls and pieces of small
'A money are tastefully arranged in h*s
t ons. Ir. the Centre of her red cap is a
diamond crescent, from which hangs a
i ng golden cord with a blue silk tassel,
usually ornamented with pearls ? Iler
ves fits tight, and admirably displays
the rnlacM ligure. The vest is confined
to the waist by a zunnar, in summer of a
fc.Ik Tripoli <?cnrf, in winter by a costlv
( **hmei shawl, and from under this a
long robe reaches to her ankles, and is
divided int> two i^.ig lappels lined with
? 'tin and lringed with costly trimmings.
'I his !atter robe partially conceals the
lull trowsers. which hang loosely over,
and are fastened round the ankles; the
asty mixture of colors, and the grace
l il arrangements renders the costume a
perfect stuJy. Latterly European shoes
have been much u!*ed by the Damascene
especially those lovely flowered

man. traveling in the I nited States, sends
the following sketch <d a "genuine Yau
k'-e to a Parihiaii journal: "Picture to
yourself, it you please a lean ligure with

would fore ver tarnish the escutcheon of a
gentleman; a hat stuck ujk>u the back of
the head; straight hair; mouth stretched
from morning till night by a lump of to
