Parker ) Tine anecdotes, published originally la tbe Washington Sunday Ckreatkte and Philadelphia n-ris. were widely copied, and the publishers will doubtless not And their venture amiss In bringing them out In book form. Anecdotes and reminiscences of notable men are always readable, and Col. Forney lias the advantage net only of knowing personally of what he writes, but of holding a practised and ready p*n, enabling him to give his recollect!jq* of the distinguished public men with whom he has been associated with graphic point and racl ness. Mr. Forney has been careful in re gard to his fact*?Indeed we have not seen any statement in this volume contradicted, which Is rather remarkable considering the range and amount of data presented?and the l>ook is, therefore, a real addition to oar historical as well as biographical literature. In fact, in running over the pages giving so much of the inner lives and historic* of the men of the times, and of the recent past, one is continually reminded of the loss that would have been ex perienced had these interesting records nerer been put Into print, and Into permanent book form. As the writer says in his pleasant pre face, instead of "One Hundred Anecdotes of Public Men," as originally intended, the work hag grown until there are Interwoven into those pages "four times as many references to the characters who figured in the past, and will be remembered In the future." Among the many interesting reminiscences in the volume are tiio*" upon John Quincy Adams, Clay, Sotilr, Web?ter, Calhoun, Kufus Choate, Ronert J. Walker, Stephen A.

ITurough It B Mfhtin A Co.] The author of ??TUa Gates Ajar," in tills little brockwrt, denounces tbe modem style of female dress In a way that must delight our Df. Mary Walker. She maintains that the pres ent drew of women U " bail taate, bad hygiene ami bad morals," and she contrasts in animated colors the comparative "simplicity, solidity, elegance and good souse of a man's apparel with the alTectaUon, the flinuioess, the taw drlnees, the ugliness and the imbecility ot a reman's." By while sighing for the masculine pants, Miss Phel]is seems to ooncede that they cap)not ke adopted until nuhiera prejudices lire removed; and she proposes to bf'jin by shorten ing the rernale skirts to a regulation distance of 1 from four to si> Inches from the ground; dis pensing with corsets and biased waists; the use of the plaited gamp or little jacket; and the adoption of the male suspender* by which to bang " every thing" from the shoulders instead of th: waist.

[Correspondence of The Star.] Wbltai'sstbllcboh Palast, June 27 th. Fur one week wo hare daily visited this no doubt tlie grandest exhibition ever held by man, but we have seen only small portions of it. Nat ural ly we haTe scrattnlied the division where our country is represented, and compared it [ with others, and I am sorry to say, hare oomr to the conclusion that we are making a most decidedly poor show with few but exceptions Whilst other nations have mvle their rooms look cheerful and pleasant with decoration* and ornaments, the United State* looks eold and ? iilnvlting. Vgty empty spaces are to be seen ' everywhere, much looks unfinished, and many artioles, not ornameutal in themselves are j carelessly prut up. Besides, with the exception of the specimens in the machine room, we do not seem to have anything of any special merit ai?nexhibition. The consequence is that the division is visited by few In comparison with others. The only things which seem to attract atten tion are the table* of the Pacific Railroad com pany, who exhibit grain and turnips of enor mous sixe, as also a nicely-stuffed antelope, and Col. Corvin, who represents them, has taken great pains In making his show promi nent. The organs and pianos also draw a few, but the main attractions are the Sherry cobbler bars, where imbibing is done thrMigh a straw, which seems to be a great neveltj here. As regards the exhibition in the educational I department, I think the city of Washington makes the best exhibit next to Boston. There are some few practical Implements shown by the Cnited States- lu this line, yet on the whole European countries seem to be considerably ahead, i notice particularly Austria, Germa ny, Switzerland, Finnland, Sweden, Portugal. I>enuiark. AH these countries excel the United States in educational science in almost every particular, and it is only in the primary school system that we seem to "have any claim to su nority at all. The horrible spcciiucns sent by some of our western cities are suggestive of schools patronized by Capt. Jack and his tribe. Why the commissioners allowed them to be shown at all I do not understand. In the machine room, however, the United States excels all other countries, and one feels proud to be called an American, and It is here where Yankees meet. There are only about one dozen machines of different kinds repre sented, but all of them are conceded to be far ahead in novelty. Ingenuity, and usefulue*> those of any oUier nation. The machinery space the United States occupies is small, not more than one-fourth that of any other nation, yet what there Is of it tells favorably. It is crowded all day long by visitors, and particu larly the shoe machine seems to draw the atten tion of everybody that visits the building. If we were fairly represented we could excel in half the articles which we produce. The beet appearance, as far 1 can judge, Is made by France, then corncs Austria, titan Germany, Switzerland. Belgium. Italy, Sweden,Norway, Kussia, Denmark, Portugal. Spain, Brazil, Turkey, and Egypt. The worst exhibition is made bv Greece, where the decay of the coun try is plaioly visible. In Washingtoniansr notice here Mr. Smalley, N. Y. Tribune correspondent; Mr. Fleischuiann, Mr. triMldard, Mr. Lines, and Mr. Williams. The city Is pretty full at present, and those who come during July and August should se cure room* fn advance. For a stranger every thlnf Is very expensive, bmt after he once be comes aeqnaiuted he will be able to 11 ve almost as reasonable as tn Parts.

A seal ring?the same that was found in the wagon?has been identified as having belonged to Go*, sod fur ther than this, other circumstantial evidence, which I have not time now to detail la this hasty telegram, has been brought ont, which, in tlie opinion of all here, quite establishes the identity of the murdered man as W.
