Take one in your hand and yon will perceive that the rind will slip off entirely, leaving a round, beantifnl yellow ball throw it immediately into another pail of pure water, and so proceed till all are done. This pro-ess will not injure the flavor of the finest peach, and once tried, the old-fashioned method of a knife will not be again adopted.

On the early fall styles there is a lavish sprinkling ot gold. Amber has gone out. Diadems will be extensively worn, either with a close-fitting shape, or with a shape allowing the wearing of a wide bandeau, trimmed with flower sprays, satin, or velvet. The prettiest ornaments worn ou 'he head will be imitations of the familiar forms and tints of the season. Among the novelties i? a hat of brown vel vet with a broad band of pheasant's feathers across the crown, and another of crimson vel vet, trimmed in frcnt with clusters of fall leaves and berries. A fall of black lace on the -diadem forms a veil, and the crown is bound with red satin. A "Lagrange" bonnet embroidered with a jet weeping willow: a white royal velvet hat, diadem front, ornamented with a tulle scarf, humming bird and tnft of marabout: a hat called ?I,e Moupquetaire de la Reine," of drab velvet, trimmed with brown satin and behind wi t h s tr. ngs mi black lace; a "Charlotte Oorday" hat trimmed with white satin, gold cord fringe, black lace and white ostrich plume are exhibited. Besides other fresh styles, there are several new modifications of the tavoiite " P anchon,"' as well as of the round hats Of the latter, the "Parepa" bids fair to be the favorite In cmffures, the novelties are a Cata lan, whose principal ornament is a cluster of cactus leaves, and a "Lucretia Borria," or namented with a golden palm leaf. Madame Deraorest e *? Drusilla," a curious compromise between a cap and a bonnet, is highly praised. It is of a peculiar shape, a deep point on the ferehead, three inches back a basque front, and a flat crown. Imtortast Arrest.?.1 Startling Record. A counrerfeitor named Edward Williams was arrested at bis house, In New Egypt, Ocean county, N. J., by United States Detective Net tlaship. on Saturday. The career of this man i? once startling and strange. The day pre vious to the trial ol Charles Dobbins, In the 1 nlted States District Court at Trenton, dur ing last July, for alleged "shoving" of coun terfeit money, Williams sought Detective Ne; tleship and volunteered to beceme a witnes, against Dobbins. The detective believing that the man was endeavoring to make his escape from the consequences of his own evil doings declined his services. The detective then set himself at work to gain evidence against Wil liams. He learned that Williams intended to visit a Methodist camp meeting at Pointville, Cumberland county, and a decoy was accord ingly sent to that place, with instructions to gain the confidence ot the suspected counter feiter. Williams was found in all his glory at the camp meeting, shouting with the brothers and praying with the sisters, and apparently joining with his whole soul in all the religieus exercises. He had his own tent on the ground, in which he employed himself during intervals at taking photographs. The decoy soon became hi3 ? pal," and finally bought of Williams $!?0 worth of counterfeit money This transaction placed Williams in the desired position, but he was allowed to run loose for a while, it being leared that his arrest might interfere ?with the arrest of other parties. Finally all was right, and Williams was arrested at New Egypt, whither he had gone after the adjourn ment of the camp meeting, taken to Newark and safely lodged in jail. The affair was uot allowed to be made public, however, until yesterday. A search of Williams' residence resulted in the discovery of his commission as a spy in the Coulederate service, and permis sions frcm several leading generals allowing him ro take photographs within our lines, in this way it is supposed that he gained into - maticn and conveyed it to Richmond. He manifested mnch surprise upon being arrested, but when informed that enough evidence to convict him had been obtained he "acknowl edged the corn."?^V. r. Herald.
