U account of u wedding. I attended this
evening. It wu a weddiig, I make
bold to say', the like ef which was never
I celebrated on either continent. . T^e
high oontraeting parties to toe marriage
| were Malis, only daughter of Da Sousa
waa literally a way of flowers—not
under foot, but in graceful arches over
besd. Thus a long, snow-white bower,
fashioned entirely of roses, was the con
necting link between the drawing room
and the drawing-room ear The demand
made on Flora for the materials for this
pioturesque covered way was unpre
cedented. The flower bill for the wed
ding—exclusive of the item of hand
bouquets—amounted to $50,000. But
the strangest thing in regard to this
bower I have yet to tell Its floor for
the entire length «as covered with
camel's hair shawls, to my mind a
piece of preposterous, aye, wicked ex
travagance. But the father of the
bride declared that ao long as it was
his only daughter and only child whose
marriage he was celebrating, he would
send her out of her home to the a team
carriage that was to carry her away
from him, over a pavement not likely
to be imitated in the future history of
marriages in Sooth Americs. The
shawls for this extraordinary purpose
were purchased in London, the order
being for "the best that ean be had for
gold," and the bill for the item amount
ed to the enormous sum of $568,500.
After the bridal party entered the train
the shawls were gathered up, and to
morrow they will be distributed among
the poor of the district.

PRINCELY PRESENTS.
And now .a few words about the
bride'e presents. They were, by actual
count, 1,840 in number, and the greater
part of them, I noticed, took the form
of either gold or diamonds. The
mother's gift was a dinner act of 280
pieces of solid gold. Eatdt pièce bears
the monogram of Cabral and Throck
morton in diamonds. Tbe ooet of this
proof of moternal affection was some
thing over $4,000,000 in gold. In
addition, Mme. Cabral gladdened the
b r iii o 'g h e art with 1,000 ynr ri s nf p/>jnt
lace ; 365 merniog, afternoon and even
ing costumes, one for each social divi
sion of every day in the year; and, to
crown all, a certificate of deposit issued
by the Bank of England:—England
being tbe objective point of toe bridal
tour-—for £1,000,000. Her father
gave her title deeds of a magnificent
town and country house in all thé lead
ing capita}« of the world and the more
famous watering places. These many
mansions are thoroughly furnished, iutd
in each—aa a tender reminder to Malis
of her maidenhood—there is an apart
ment that exactly corresponds in farni
ture and »doroments to her own room
at her father's house Not oontenting
himself with this display of bist bounty,
Cabral presented her with ss fine a
steamship as canid be built on tbe tion

Taking these to Amsterdam, he aum

atated what he deaired—which wu that
each of thf thirty stones should have a
fantastic face cut upon it Amsterdam
at firrt Mid that the t»ak wu more than
c .
herculean—that it wu impossible. But
when Cabral atated the atppendona sum
be was willing to pay for the fulfillment
of hia wishes , Amsterdam reconsidered
and consented to doits beat. It did
it. best for five years, day and night,
and the result wu that a week before
the wedding, the diamonds, eut, carved
set on a golden etrtng, and all ready to
embrace the snowy neok of .the bride,
were plaeed kt the hands of the jubilant [
Cabral. I happened to be present
when Mali, first wu shown theneek

married. She wore a black silk at the

for a moment, and then quietly replied :

BEWILDERING TO I UTS.
Ton must not expect from me any
description of the ornate and bewilder
ing toilets worn at the wedding—no,
not oven of the bride's rare raiment. I
am indebted to lady guest for the in
formation that her drees was of point
laee, flounced, or rather garlanded, to
the waist with strings of seed pearls,
with the voluminous train edged with a
filagree of gold thickly set with dia
monds. Her neck was eiroled by her
lather's wonderful offering, besides
which there were diamonds banded on
her hair and in bracelets on her wrists,
She was certainly the most biasing
beauty l ever gased upon.
There was one feature of the wedding
arrangements which struck me might
better have bees omitted entirely, or at
least very materially modified, bot
which, nevertheless, in the meek it
made of expense, was quite in keeping
with all the other features. 1 allude to
