October 21 We have heard of a silvereradle failing to the lot of a lucky lady mavoress. who by g<">d for tune has added to her lord's family daring his Tear of office; but. until now. we have never liearj of a bedstead emnpoeed of the same rich metal. Six bedsteads of silver have been or dered from one of the larje furniture establish ments here. bv the Pasha ?.f Kgvpt. in contempla tion of the marriage of hi* son with the present Sultan's daughter. Th" work is of an arabesque character: the >*ei*tead is composed throughout of pierced opt-n metal work. douMy plated, with scrolls of matted and burnished silver in high relief. The head is pierred. and surmounted with rh?*ed foliage, the foot harmonising in charac ter. ftnd being enriched by a largo arabesque shell. Fluted and polished pillars at each cor ner support gracefully arched open work, over which is intended to fall the mosquito net?the only bed furniture used in the hast. The sil ver work is thrown into relief by a lining of crimson velvet, and a mattress and bolster of green satin completes the ornaments of the couch. The cost of the set is estimated at The extravagance of the Parisian world is making such rapid strides toward East ern magnificence that we shall doubtless, ere long, hear of Parisian boudoirs and bedroom* ornamented not only with silver or golden couches, but with etageres, divans, ?kc., of the same precious material The morning rohes. dinner dresses and even ing costumes prepared by Madame Petit. 4 Place Vendotne. andourother first rate artistes, for the Imperial fetes at Compcigne during the soj mrn of the Court at this delightful palace, are fin" specimens of the lavish richncs* of the present style of costume. No lady appears twice in the same toilette; and the breakfast gown is as heavily bedizened with embroidery, lace* and furbelows. ft? was the gala attire 01 a gr ind dame ten years ago. The plain black or dark colored taffetas arc the silks generally preferred at this reason and during the winter, for walking dresses. These rohes are made either with a double skirt, or with trimmings up the sides of a plain skirt. When double the upper skirt is finished either with a deep fringe or a ruce a la vislls of rib bon. The side ornaments when sewed on. are made in various ways. Some consist of quad rilles ?r loxenges, formed with narrow black velvet*, other of ruches. On black silk skirts are aeon, at the side, a pyramid of Prussian blue silk, bordered at the side with a narrow fringe, and generally covered with cross-bands of velvet or fancy jet ornaments. The cordages of these robe* a trimming of loaeagea of nar row velvets representing a low body on a high one There are also fancy trimmings of velvet made separate from the dress, which may be worn with different bodies. They eonsut of br>ad velvet braces, between which, in front, seven cross band* of narrower velvet are put; these hands form a ladder in the shape of a V. A bow of black velvet is placed ou the last cross band, at the waist. These ornaments are much worn on pointed bodies without lappets. Large velvet buttons are a favorite ornament on eorsage*. skirts and jackets. The following i* a description of a charming style of evening toilette for a very young lady. A pink silk froek of a check pattern; three flounces on the skirt each being edged with narrow fringe The open body is cut away hear^-shape, both before and behind, and is ornamented with a narrow reverse forming braces on the shoulders and gradually dimin ishing down to the waist. In front and behind are narrow cross bands of the silk bordered with a fringe. The short sleeves are puffed. Many flounced skirts have a velvet border over the edge of the ruffles. The winter bonnets made by Madame Al phonSine. 12 Rue de Helder. and other artists who direct the fashions for the approaching ??eason. come more forward on the head, and are larger th*n those worn during the sum mer?the curtain hangs very low. and is cov ered with deep blondes, reaching beyond the edge. For full dress, a pensy velvet bonnet is bordered with a bias piece of royftl white vel vet. "The crown is plaited, and slopes oft" be hind. A deep black lace turns back on the edge of the front; there is a bouquet of white leathers on each side. Claret velvet bonnets are trimmed with a wreath of claret velvet fo liage Bonnet; of sky blue velvet have for ornaments blue velvet ribbons mixed with tips of Tbibit featheru. Plaid velvet bonnets, or namented with black lace, are among the nov elties of the moment. White crape bonnet# are covered with black spotted tulle For or nament there is a wreath of puffed flame?col ored velvet placed along the ed^e of the front and curtain ; on one side there is a bouquet of 1 white feathers. A brilliant ornament of jewels has been pre pared by Sararin. 1U Boulevard St. Itenia, to acoouipany the parurcs, formerly part of the ball costumes. This i* a bandeau a la Suphu, worn a little above the forehead. and composed of precious stones : it is the antique style of jewelry, and is particularly becoming to those who wear their hair coifed a /'Imperatrirr.

P. Ely, of Rochester, to whom Mr I'raper had made consignments of wheat to the vftlue of $17.iUO. The Messrs. Ely reported their liabilities *ot great?they merely wanted a little time to make all right. It was. however, thought their affairs would not prove so satisfac tory at was represented. Mr. l>ra|?er ascer tained that the Messrs. Ely some years ago purchased ftbout twenty thousand acres of Iftnd in a kilning district in Marquetteeounty Mich igan. to whieh land they were building ? rail road some seventeen miles in length, chiefly for the purpose uf bringing down tne proceeds of the mines. It was soon found out that the Me?sr? Ely were in the act of assigning their property to creditors '). aixl that they had male an assignment of their railroad property to certain creditors, one of whom was their brother. . Now. according to the laws off Mich igan. an alignment is <?l no until it is registered in the county in which the property lies An agent of Mr. l>raj?er was immediately started fr<HB Rochester to the West The same train which carried hi? agent carried the mail whieh contained the Ely assignment. Tbey both arrived at the point of designation at the sam<- time, and belore the assignment could make its way through the j?st office to tin party to whom it wai addressed, l>r;ip?r s law yer had an attachment on record upon the rail way. wharves, station bouses, and all the rolling stock of the railroad The property was clear of all encumbrances, and Mr. l>raper is assure 1 by hi* lawyer that the amount is perfectly se cured.

' remarked the other l?dy,"4fbr I saw him buried ft* weeks ago " Anecdotes or Aaron BcRR.-^PLe last six chapters of Parton's Life of Burr oontain many anecdotes of Burr, and numerous incidents, which throw light on his character and pecu liarities A gentleman who spent some time in his office, gave the author the following account of his Jai ly habits : " He roso at the dawn A breakfast of an egg and a cup of coffee sufficed for this most ab stemious of men; after which be workod among his paper* fur some hours before his clerk aud assistants arrived. He was a hnrd task-mas ter: he 4 kept us all upon the jump.' All day he was dispatching and receiving messages, sending for oooks. persons and papers ; expect ing every eommand to be obeyed with next-to impossible celerity, inspiring every one with his own seal, and getting a surprising quantity of work accomplished. 4 He waa btmnes* ?'?/ carnatty said my informant. About ten in the evening he would give over, invite his compan ions to the sideboard, and take a single glass of wine. Then his spirits would rise, and he would ?t for hours telling stories of hi? past life, and drawing brief and graphic sketches of celebrated characters with whom he had acted. Often he was full of wit and gayety at such times ; ' the liveliest fellow in the world1 as merry as a boy-never melancholy. never ill natured.' About midnight, or later, he would lie down upon a hard couch in the corner of his office, and sleep 'like a child,' until the morn ing. In his personal habits he was a thorough going Spartan : eating little, drinking little, sleeping little, working hard. He was fond of calculating upon how small a sum life could be supported, and used to think that he could live well enough upon seventy-five cents a week." Towards the close of Burr's life, when from paralysis he was prostrated on his bed, a lady said to him : ?? Colonel. I wonder now if you were the gay Lothario they say you were?" The old man turned his eyes, the lustro of which was undimned still, toward the friend who made the remark, and lifting his trembling finger, said in his quiet, impressive whisper, which still lingers in her cars, and which brought tears to her eyes, twenty years after, as she related the words : '? They say ! they say they say ! Ah ' my child, how long are you ffoing to continue to use those dreadful words? Those two little words have done more harm than all others. Nover use them, my dear. Nrvrr use thcin !" Passing in Broadway a maiden lady of a cer tain age. whom he had not seen for many years, she accosts him with?"Colonel, do you not recollect me ?" " I do not, madam." ?' I am Miss K , s r," said she. -'What,'* be ex claimed. *? Miss K yrt * ' '? Yes. sir," re 1 plied the lady, a little offended, " Miss K yet.'* Perceiving the error he had committed, he gently took her by the hand, and said, in his bland, emphatic manner?' Well, madam. then I venture to assert that it is not the fault of my sox !" The Duly Noon Prayer Meeting.?The New York correspondent of the Boston Journal, thus describes a feature in New York city, which originated during the stress of the late I panic: One of the features of the day that is quite , noticeable, is a men's day praver meeting, held in the lecture-r<>otn of the Gld North Dutch Church, from twelve o'clock to one o'clock. The meeting is begun at twelve o'clock precisely, and oloscs exactly on the hour. The room is full and crowded and the interest appears to in crease from day to day. It originated with the new effort to meet the religious destitution of the lower part of the city, and begun with a m<?dest meeting held once in the week. But the attendance and the benefit seem to demand the more frequent observance of the privilege, and now it has become a daily servioe And with the pressure came a larger attendance, and a more spirited service, and the probability is that the meeting will be adjourned to the church. Any one comes iu or goes out when he pleases. It is the rule of the place to leave at any moment. All sects are here?the formal and stately Churchman, the impulsive Metho d st. the sober substantial Dutchman, the ardent Congregationalism the Baptist and Presbyter ian, joining in the same chorus and bowing :it the same altar. The movement was a bold one fur New York?so near the gates of mammon, and ao near that altar of Pluto at which so many | in our midst do not fail to bow down and wor ship. Not '>ne woman is in the meeting, and | the singing from two hundred male voices is really majestic." Encopnter with a Bear.?Robert I. C Church, of West Mills, Industry. Me., publishes ! the following in the Maine Farmer: While returning from the upper part of Moose head Lake, where I had been log driving, and when in the vicinity of Mount Kimeo, which lies on the western shore of the lake, I heard a cracking noise in the bushesbefore mo. It was some moments before I ascertained that the noise was made by a large moose that was browsing. I silently drew up my piece and fired at his nose, which I could just see through the bushes, but apparently without effect, as he made off at full speed. I pursued him about one hundred rods, when, in passing round an abrupt point of a ledge which hid him from my sight, Isuddently found myselfconfronted with a large bear, which iustantly sprung upon me with his mouth wide open I had not a moment for reflection?I bad not time to use my piece had it been loaded. As be rushed towards mc, I dropped my rifle and thrust my fist into his mouth, grappling with all the energy of despair the roots of his tongue In this manner we rol led aud tumbled for some moments, he striving to gel clear of me. and I holding on for life. At last hedrew up his hind legs, and with tremend ous force kicked me twenty feet from hiin. rend ing my pantaloons into shreds. He did not re new the nttaek. but made off. and I had no dis position to follow him. I have followed hun ting in the winter seasons for the last ten years, and am accustomed to all dangers incident to the business, but I do not again c </et a close hag with bear.
