The Academy was densly packed, and tbe receipts must have beeu most gratifying for the charity in aid of which the re ception was designed, for fashionable New York views its gayct-t festivities with the eanciion of charity. Twen ty thousand tickets were sold at five dollars apiece, aud the result was that hundreds of bolder of tickets on seeing the crowd, went home, with out trying to enter, it was worth tbe crush, to (ee the minuet danced by two dozen couples, trained for the occasion by a fashionable Fifth Ave nue dancing na icr.

For eign artis's are determined not to lose good priees for the want ot ask ing. At tbe exhibition of water col ors now open, tbe finest efforts of our best artists, men like Ssamuel t-oiman and Swayne Gifford, rarely venture above $700, while some wonderfully scrawly pictures of voluptuous wo men with equally voluptuous couch hangings, in w hich tbe artist had con trived to make the woma I look as luxurious as the damasks, aod tbe damasks, somehow, as licentuous as the wo.uan, were tacked with the price of $1 000 apiece.

Tbe long polonaise with long sides eaught together in the back, is the laiest and favorite style, very be c uuiug and economical too. For the house, nothing is so much in style as'tbe gorded drs with full skirt in the back, and the least irimmiug tbat the fabric demands. . PlETRO. rmrlaia Matarnl llmorr. Froirs. toads and serpents never take auy f..d but that which they are satisfied is alive. When a bee, wasp, or hornet stings it ia uearly always ai the expense of its life. Serpents arc so tenacious of life that tbey will live six mouths or lon ger without food. Turtles dig holes on tbe seashore and bury their eggs covering them to be hatched by the sun. Lobsters are very pugnacious, and Ggbt severe battles. If they looJ'e a claw, another grows out. i A siugle codfish produces more lhau a million of eggs in a season. A w bale suckles its young and is therefore not a fish. Tbe mother's affection is remarkable. Toads become torpid in the winter and bide themselves, taking no food f-r five or six mouths. Serpcuts of all species hed their skins aunually, like sea crabs and lobsters. It is believed tbat croc'liIcslive to be a buudred years old. The Egyp tians embalm them. Tbe bead or a rattlesnake has been known to inflict a fatal wound after being severed from the body. If the eye of a newt is put out, another one is restored by rapid growth. Fishes have no eyelids, and neces sarily sleep with ibeir eyes open. Alligators fall into a lethargic sleep, during the winter, like toads. The power of serpents to charm birds and small Quadrupeds is a well authenticated fact. There are agricultural ants in Tex as that actually plant grain, and reap and store the harvest. iMroit policemen don't fee as to be "7 Rood n arksmen. ul want you either to bit me or tUp making such a blamed racket," said a thief in city, at whom a policeman was shooting.

A discovery baa lately been made on au ieLud in tbe Missisippi. w hich shows tbat tbe Aborgines uf Auien ica were not wholly uuacquaiuied with mechanical surgery, but occa sionally wore wooden legs when de prived of their natural limbs, la a subterraneau cave hewn out ot aolid rock many thousands of years ago, was found, among other remarkable articles, a skull as brown as polished walnut, perfect ia every respect, aud of extraordinary size, also au almost complete skeleton with a woodeu leg. Tbe fastenings of the artificial limb consisted of petrified leather aud bronze buckles. Tbe origiual leg ap pears to have been removed ball wsy between the hip and the knee. This discovery is regarded as exceed ingly interesting, as not only proving that wooden extremities were fash ionable in early ages, but that a knowledge of bronze was among the learning of the aborigines.

( The dinner, as it was modestly designated on the bills of fare, was given to Wil liam Sharon, a Uuited States Sena tor frotj the State of Nevada. Of the select company which cat down at the table, more than half tbe num ber were milliunairs, and tbe otber half could count their wealth in hun dreds of thousands of trade dollars. Ia richness ot viauds, exquisite beau ty of the floral and other decorations, table adornments, glitter of silver ware and essentials of a lavish dis play of opulence, it is safe to say that tbe dinner last nitrbt to Senator Sharon has never been surpassed. With such an accomplished aud veteran caterer as Warren Iceland. the Hotel King of America, it could not bave teen otherwise. When tbe banquet was in progress tbe scene preseuted was one of rare splendor. Tbe band of tbe florist bad transformed tbe aparitreut iuto a bewitching grotto in fairy laud Upon tbe snowy cloth were arranged bright flowers in reckless prof u -ion. while, ming log with fruit, flowers and wondrous dishes, tbe bright sil verware glittered in the light of nu merous gas jets and tbe soft rays of fifty-four wax candles rising from ra diant candelabra. Tbe recesses formed by the bow-windows were turned into beautiful conservatories, aod a delicious effect was produced by placing large mirrors against tbe windows as a background for tbe plants. Tbe reflection of tbe foliage caused tbe windows to appear to ibe eye as so many entrances to tbe green-bouses of great depth, thus im parting tbe borrowed enchantment of distance to the view. In one win dow was a little grove of orange trees and banauna plants; another was a miniature forest of tropical palms bending gracefully to the car pet, aod a third recess was filled witb ferns of every description, en rapturing to the vision. The walls were bung with paintings of figures, and landscapes, while eighteen cage?, filled with golden-winged feathered songsters, were suspended from tbe ceilings at appropriate intervals. Mammoth ornamental bronzes of costly make and vases filled with palms greeted tbe eye at every turn. It was in such an apartment tbat Mr. Sharon's "old friends of tbe Coiu- stor-k Lode" broke bread with hitu last night. Each gentleman seated around the festive board found, near his napkin, bill of fare engraved upon a heavy plate of silver, dug from the Corn- stock Lode, and highly polished. These were gotton up in artistic style at a cost of over $10 each, measured abou 6x4 J inches, of a I quarter of a dollar's tbickuess An j legan' border was engraved on each side of tbe plate, enclosing tbe read- ng matter.

In Albany, a few days since, an old rogue beat a young one, A man stepped up to a juveoil boot black, opposite tbe Stanwix, acd had a "shine." He gave tbe youth a $5 bill. "Hain't got change enough, cap'n," said tbe "shiner," displaying about $2 in shin plasters. "How much bave you?" asked tbe stranger. "Lemme see," said the br.y. count ing his money. "Je' $2 50." "Give me that, and I will wait till you get change," the etranger re plied. .

Tbe circumstances of this appoint ment have never been related in print, -e believe, aud tbe anecdote will bear telling. Mr. William Ballard Preston of Virginia, was from tbe first an active partisan of Gen. Taylor, and in rne of bis speeches boasted tbat be had been the first man m-the country to "mount Old Whitry and sbow off bis paces." As a return for his services to tbe party and to tbe President. Gen.

"I hear," be said, ' that you think of making my friend Pres'on your Attorney General." "Yes," replied Taylor, "I do." "Arc you aware of the fact," con tinued the Senator, "that an Attor ney General must represent the Gov ern nei.t in tbe Supreme Court?"' 'Of course," sahl Taylor. "Do you kn iw that he must there meft Daniel Webster and Ueverd.v Johnson as opposing counsel?" "Certain! v," replied Tuylor, "wbat ot that?"
