BAXTTMOSX, Sunday Night, Joly 7-10 o'clock.
The Sooth Carolina delegation are all here.
The pr?sence of ex-Senator Chesnut excites
much at?<milon,rand the entire delegation re?
ceive a hearty welcome.
The Greeley men count with certainty on
six hundred ot the seven hundred and fifty
eight delegates, and have everything their
own way. Crowds are assembl?e .to-night
around tb? street corners and hotel corridors
discussing the sltua'ion. Every unlucky
Democrat who opposes Greeley ls Immediate
ly ?.classed among Grant's supporters. The
?only trouble expected will be among the
Pennsylvania delegation. Otherwise the con- j
ve ntl on bids lair to be perfectly harmonious.
The chalnnanohip of the Democratic cen?
tral committee is to be filled after the conven
. tlon has finished Its labor. Other sections
concede the. position to New York City, for
the reason that lt ls better to have it filled by
a man of wealth. The choice seems to lie
between Augustus Schell and James S. Thayer,
both men ol great wealth and intelligence.
The farmer ls largely Interested with Co m mo- j
dore Vanderbilt; the latter ls a retired manu?
facturer or agricultural implements.
A large number of Greeley men are deter?
mined to read ont ol the party every promi?
nent Democrat and Democratic newspaper j
falling to sup port the nominees of the conven?
tion. Congressman Beck, of Kentucky, leads j
this movement as against the Chicago Times,
New York World, Daniel W. Yo o rh ees and
ether such papers and men. It has been sug?
gested by .Belmont's friends that he make this
move in advance' In his opening speech, to
help him innis battle for re-election to the
Chairmanship of the central commit tee. But
even this would hardly avail to save him. He
is doomed, and Schell or Thayer will hereaf
ter -occupy bis place. Th? enthusiasm for
Greeley ls quiet, but Intense. The elly ls
crowded. The delegations already arrived
arifmostly; from the Southern and Western
States near by. The Northern delegations are
all expected to-morrow. A large number of |
Southern tourists, on their way to the North?

Tbe National Democratic Convention unani?
mously elected Thomas Jefferson Randolph,
of Virginia, temporary chairman of the con?
vention, and F. 0. Prince, of Massachusetts,
Nearly all the delegations are full. Over
six hundred delegates are registered.
The theme to-day ls "straight nomination,''
or "simple endorsement."
At the meeting of the bolters from the Filth
Avenue Conference at tue Mary lana Institute,
about two hundred persons were present, the
majority of whom were spectators. There
were also about twenty-five Simon Pures who
will not support Greeley if nominated.
Joseph B. Flanders was president. Among
those present were Blanton Duncan, of Ken?
tucky; Jos. Dldles and Wm. White o? Illinois;
Henry Sherwood, ot Connecticut, and Winiam
Reed, of Virginia. The bolt ls a failure. 1

are the coats ot arms of each State. On (he

portrait of General Washington, on the box
lacing the west is the portrait of General
Jackson, and over this box ls the portrait of
Van Buren, and on the. apposite side that of
Henry Clay. The stage has been divested of
Its scenery, and will be enclosed on two sides
and the rear with wood, which some facetious
persons declare ls Intended to represent the

to throw sufficient, light upon the body
of the house, and the chandeliers under
the.balcony circle will also be used as well as
the gas Jets over the stage. With BO mach
artl3clal light, and aided by the front win?
dows, lt is supposed there will be no trouble
on this score, while the mellowing effect ot
combined sunlight and gaslight, mingled with
the rich bues o! the trimmings, will have a
beautiful effect. A fcnio representation In
keeping with the character ot Mr. Greeley has
been prepared, and will be presented to the

TUE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS AT
Annual Exercises of Erskine College.
and the Due West Female College
Sleet o n and History o? the Former In?
[FROM OCR BFEOfAL CORRESPONDENT.]
DOE WEBT, S. G., July 6.
The commencement exercises of Erskine
College and the Due West Female College,
the two educational institutions which have
made the name of this smiling little village
familiar throuuh the length aod breadth 01
the Southeastern States, began here yester?
day, and will continue with accumulating In?
terest until Thursday, the 11th instant. The
culminating point will be reached next Wed?
nesday and Thursday, when the commence?
ment exercises proper will take place in the
great ball of Erskine College, and the young
ladles and gentlemen ol both institution- will
exhibit their progress and proficiency In clas?
sic lure and the higher branches of a liberal
education to the interested spectators, who,
as each recurring anniversary tor nearly forty
years, are expected to crowd the st.ee ts of tbe
Utile vlilago, and tax the almost bound?
less hospitality of its courteous citizens
to Its utmost limit. At present the
faculty and students of each institution
are busily engagfd In the annual examina?
tions, wblcb arv progressing satisfactorily, and
showing most gratify mg results of caret ul ann
rigid tuition. Tn? examinations are search?
ing and thorough; questions involving me
whole range of tue cuirlcuium are rapidly put
aod unhesitatingly answered, and mere is on
the pact otv almost every student a prompt
cheerfulness and confidence in ibo loue of ibe
replies which are pruols ot studious applica?
tion and perfect mastery of the respective
studies. Examtnatluu*, however, to the mere
spectator and to the general public are prosaic
and uninteresting necessities incidental io the
commencement season, abd while the solemn
seniors and expectant honor men are facing
their final tests and anxiously awaiting the
results, some words of description ot I he
beautiful little village which ls-the seat of au
much learning may not be out of place.
Due WrBt, with lia euri JUS tlile, said to be a
corruption of De Witt's, the name of a Bonall
trading post located here lu the olden times, ls
In the northeastern corner of Abbeville Count y.
eleven miles north ot Abbeville Courthouse,
and four miles west ot the nearest railroad
station ( onnald'H, on the Greenville and Co?
lumbia Railroad.) Ita geographical cognomen
has apparently no geographical significance
wbalever, for lt ls due west fi om nowhere un?
less It be from some imaginary point which
must be supposed for the pur. oses of the
hypothesis io be located due east from here tn
the forests of Abbeville or Laurens. Tbe
little village, however, whatever may be its
titular misfortunes,, has a degree of beamy
and a distinctive character of ila own confer?
red upon it by the colleges of which
lt is the product. It ls not all an
agricultural village, although it is In
ihe heart of a purely agricultural
country. It has grown up around the edu?
cational Institution which was originally
located here on account of the salubrity of
this climate and the beauty of the site, and the
character of its Inhabitants is modified ihere?
by. There are perhaps a larger number of
residences of professional gentlemen In Due
West than in any oiher village uf Its size in the
State, and most of the other houses in the vii
luge are In some way or other connected with
the colleges. Tbe raison d'etre of the neat lit?
tle Ph can ix Hotel ls the u eues.-1 ty Ot accommo?
dating ibe crowds of commencement visitors,
and i he rem alni UL' residences in the place are
all more or less filled with students aa private 1
boarders. Tue village, In fact, ls an append- '
age of the colleges. If th? latter were
to die, the village would collapse ; lt
they meet wtth good fortune, the vil?
lage flourishes; and lt the colleges were '
BO far io forget their traditional dignity as to '
take snuff, tue villagers would feel constrained
to sneeze. The result of this, however, is tnai '
the village IB a handsome, flourishing, itiriv- !
lng place, wlih excellent society, aud more ;
tban the average ot elegance and refinement,
and with much architectural beauty. It is
nula principally on either side ot tne malo ;
f-tteet. running nearly north and south. Tbe
village extends along this street about one 1
mlle, and includes a number of pretty cottage
residences, most uf them bright In the glory
ot fresh white paint, a neat aud commodious
churcn of the Associate Reformed denomina- .
lion, one hotel and a few stores. Tbere
are* a numb r of new dwellings of
elegant aud ambitious architectural de
Blgu now just completed, or In pro?
cess of erection. Une of these, lately fl ?r i
lBhed, belongs to Rev. J. N, Young, proie-sor ol
mathematics and nalurai philosophy In Ers?
kine College. Another, which ls nearly com?
pleted, ts ouildlugfor Prolessor Bonner.' presi?
dent of ihe Female College, and another one,
which ls rai do i y going np. 1B owned by Proles?
sor G. F. Kennedy, one of the faculty of the t
same tnBiuuilon. Another handsome' roil
dence ls about to be begun by Mr. D. W. Haw?
thorn, a merchant of ihe place. A little to

as being tue most venerable and most Impor?
tant, win naturally tase precedence.
The land belonging to'Erskine College and
upon which Its bails are erected comprises a
nearly square tract of thirteen aerea, rising
gradually from all sides to a gentle elevation
in the centre. It ls thickly covered with
noble forest trees, and, with an outlay, of a
few hundred dollars, under the super?
vision of a sklllul landscape gardener,
could be made, perhaps, the handsomest
campus lo the Unit*d States. Tne build?
ings are' four In numoer. Tne largest
ls Lindsey Hall, named In honor of James
Lindsey, Esq., who contributed largely to its
construction In 18i5. Il containa lu me first
story the College Chapel wlin a, number of
lobbies and smaller rooms, and tue entire size
of ibe second fl--or la devoted to the exhibi?
tion hall, which has a capaciiy of from twelve
to fifteen hundred spectators.. In the front
face of the building ls a massive tower sur?
mounted by a lofty observatory, whence Is
obtained an extensive view ot the surround?
ing country. Iis elevation ls auffielen tly above
the tops of tbe tallest trees lu the neighbor?
hood io afford an unobstructed view of the
horizon, and furnish an opportunity tor astro?
nomical observations, enabling the observer
to view tbe stars ai the horizon as well as ai toe
zenith. The observatory ls lurniBbvd with a
numoer of Instruments, among which are a
splendid telescope, seven feet long, presented
in 1849 by Mr. Wm. Johnston, of Alabama,
and ? smaller telescope known as the comet
The building next In Importance Blends a
hule to ihe norih of Lindsey Hall, and con?
tains ihe class-rooms aud recitation halls, lt
ls a substantial ihree-Btory brick bullamg, and
contains a number of commodious ruomB. fur?
nished with black-boards, pbiius >pbical appa?
ratus, mineralogical caolnets, amt ihe uaual
appurtenances for study, experiment and de?
monstration. To the West ut these ouildlugs,
and formlog two more sides to the partial
quadrangle, stand tbe tasteful buildings erect?
ed by the two literary societies attached to
the Institution. Tne oldest of these ls the
hall of the Euphemlan Society, erected In
18S8 9. This Is of naiive brick, painted red,
and neatly pointed, of octagonal shape, ana
two stories high. Ihe first floor contains a
lobby, two furnaces lur heating the building.
and the library and reading-room, containing
about twenty-five hundred volumes ot assorted
literal ure, and adorned wltn oil portraits of
the former presidents of the college, Rev. Dre.
E. E. Pressly, E. L. Patton and R, C. Grier.
The second floor consists of an octagonal ball,
handsomely furnished with Brussels carpet,
lace and brocade curtains, bronze chandelier,
and marble centre-table and president's desk.
On the rostrum, and upon a marble slab over
tbe main entrance, is engraven tbe mull o ot
the Foclety, walch, being translated lrom the
Greek, ls "Live tor thy Country a0t thy God."
On tbe opposite side ot the campus lacing
Its rival, stands the handsome rectangular
hall of the Pbilomathean Society, inscribed
with Hs defiant motto "Nil Desperandum."
ThlB hall was erected by the sod? ty lu 1659-60,
ana IB ahont tblrjy-fivc by fifty feetln Pia? and
two stories high. The first floor cmtalns the
Horary and readlng-r?om, with about the
same number o? books and copies jf ibu same
portraits possessed by the other society, with
a number of valuable maps upok tho walls,
and capacious lobbies and commttee roomB.
On the Bfcond floor Is the main hill devoted
to literary exercises. and dlspubiioop, and
furnished in aBtjie very slmllai ana with a
degree of taste and richness eiual to the
adornment of tho other hall. -r
Erskine College was founded, end ls princi?
pally sustained, by the denomlpailon now
known as the Associate ReformedJChurcb, the
offspring of a union formed in 1?82 between
me Reformed Presbyterian (or Covenanters')
Cnurch and the Associate Church, both ot
scottish, origin. The standard of tte Associate
Reformed Cnurch Is th? "WeslmHster Conies
siun of Falih," and its founders lnihis country
came during the last century to tte shores of
the New World from Sunland ant the north?
ern part nf Irt-land. The church has grown
aud flourished In America, an 1 it pow bas two
Independent branches In Ulla couiiry. the one
.n ibe Southern Slates being known as the
Associato Reformed Synod of the Sou m. Tnere
are about, seventy ministers in lils n>nod, and
more churches than inirlsien)- d'iairiuuied
throughout North Carolina, 8qmh Caroltna,
Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Ar
kaunas, tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri.
S iuth Carolina ls included partly in the first
and partly In the second presbytery, and has
twenty-one ministers, lucated in Abbeville,
Anderson, Newberry, Laurens, Fairfield, Ches?
ter, York and Lancaster Conto Us.
The germ ot the present oojlege was the
Clark and Erskine Seminary founded at Due
West lu 1836. For three or font years the In?
stitution was confined to flttlig young men
fur college, but in 1839 It was reorganized as a
college, and a collegiate charter obtained
from the Slate. Since that lime lt bas been in
success'm operation, with steadily Increasing
numbers and prosperity, noihwiihidaoding
the vicissitudes of the war and other olscourag
Ing circumstances, and now lt occupies a
position of assured stability and usefulness.
The reasons for the establishment of Erskine
College have been slated as follows, and they
would certainly seem as applicable and
forcible now as In 1839,when ihe-e words were
written. One object was to obviate the necs
xity ol sending young men from the Sooth to
the colleges lo the North and Northwest,
thereby endangering their health by exposing
them to an uncongenial climate. Another
was. that from the location of the college a
surer guarantee might be afforded of the
preservation and the Improvement of the
morals of youth than eau be enjoyed where
the inducements to vice are numerous.
Another design of the institution was to quali?
fy young men of piety and ot'mind lor the
?molle service of the church."
The Rev. E. E. Pressly, D. D., was the
first president of tie college. He was elect-'
ed lu 1839 and resigned la 1847, the Rev. R.
C. Grier, D. D , being elected as his successor.
Dr. Grier, alter a number of years ot faithful
service, also resigoed, and was succeeded by
the Rev. E. L. Patton. D D ,. but alter a lew
years Dr. Grier was recalled to the presiden?
cy, which post he' occupied until his death In
March, 1871. In September last his son, the
Rev. W. Moffat Grier, WHS elected as presi?
dent and professor ot moral and mental phil?
osophy, which position be now holds. The
other members of the faculty as ut oreseut
organized are as follows: Rev. J. P. Pressly,
D. D" professor of Greek; Rev. J. N. Young,
pro lessor ot mathematics and natural sciences;
W. ti. Lowry, A. M., professor of Latin; Wil?
liam Hood, A. M., professor of boites lettres
The history of the college has been a long
record of useiul labor and gratifying results.
It bas had seme severe financial vicissitude4,
among which the most severe was the swamp?
ing ofalmoet its entire assets by the civil war;
bir. although lt ls not yet by .any means a
wealthy Corporation, it has always managed
to provide well for Its cu: rent eipenaes, while
furnishing tuition at an extremely moderate
and in some cases a merely nominal rate. The
college bad at one time an endow meat fundbl
seventy thousand dollars, tho'greater part ot
which was lost by the war. but a project is
now on foot by which lt ls expeoted that a new
endowment fund of one hundred thousand
dollars will be raised, whichj will put the insti?
tution above the probabi ity of want lor sev?
eral years. The college is running at present
on a five-year endowment pian, gutten up lour
years ago. ' Parties paid, or obligated tnem
-elves for, one hundred dollars to be paid In
five years, at the rate of twenty dollars per
.tear. In the meantime each subscriber had
the com roi of one year's tuition for one stu?
dent for each twenty dollars so paid. This
endowment, which terminates at the close of
1873. reduces tne expenses of tuition lo a
comparai Ive trifle, in proportion to the arivan
lages enjoyed at this venerable and scholarly
institution. ' PICKET.

[FROM Otnt OWN CORRESPONDENT. ]
COLUITBU, Joly 8.
Colombia has been particularly dull for tbe
past week, even Independence Day failing to
exalte any marked degree of Interest amoog
the people. What there was of a celebration
was confined solely to the citizens of the fif?
teenth amendment. These parade-loving folks,
In their Ignorant though Innocent enjoyment
of chow, are always ready to celebrate any?
thing. Their own Emancipation day, the
Fourth of July, a marriage or a funeral, all
alike enjoyable occasions to them, as Mr.
Toots would say, though 'Mt's ot no conse?
quence at all." If they can flod fun In tbe
Fourth of July, which neither they nor their
ancestors, nor any of their race, assisted in
rendering memorable, why not ?
If it bad-not been for the freedom from
British tyranny and oppression wblch tbe glo?
rious fourth ls designed to commemorate, per?
haps these people would not bave been
brought here In such large numbers as slaves.
And If they had not been brought here as
slaves, they would never have reached this
Land of Canaan at all, bot wonld today, in all
human probability, be basking In nature's at?
tire tn the sultry sands of Africa, near UJ j .
perhaps, Instead of enjoying the full light and
Jiberty of a citizen of tbls mighty republic.
For the sake of consistency, though, thej
ought to celebrate a slavery day, too; for that
Is a necessary link In the chain of causer
whloh have brought them to their preseni
. There was a large crowd of them in town
on Thursday with a band of muslo and a mili?
tia company of conree. They lormed.a pro?
cession and marched to the park, wbere they
listened to the words of wisdom which fell
from the Ups of Chamberlain, Nash, one Cur?
tis, a bright mulatto unknown to fame, and
Cadet gmitb, the leading military hero of bis
race, and whose personal pulchritude IB very
sadly marred by his very long arms and tur?
The white people bonored the day by mak?
ing a general holiday of lt, spent In rural bar?
becues and picnics.
Next year, perhaps, when Uncle Horace will
occupy the Presidential cbalr, and by bis
genial mle have lifted from our land the cloud
of gloom and oppression which overhangs lu
we may hope to make the Fourth a real day ol
There are no recent political developments
among the Radical magnates here. They have
all probably been walting the discovery of
Orr's line of policy, wblcb, thanks to the en?
terprise of THE NEWS, ls now made unmistak?
able. That -Interview was admirably well
timed, and has been the subject of mncb dis?
cussion here In the conservative political cir?
cles.' and doubtless among tbe Rlngltes, too,
for-it witt iah like a bomb-shell in ihejpimldsL
Far the Conservatives, lt gives a definite shape
to tbe approaching state campaign, and fur?
nished a reasonable hope for better things. We
know where we stand, what will be tbe nature
of the. contest, and what our duty will be In
the premises, for Orr has the power to make
his reform movement formidable, and there ls
no rational grounds to doubt his sincerity.
His own Interests and those of bis party de?
mand of bim that he pursue the course he has
In your correspondent's Judgment, the re?
form movement will be supported here cer?
tainly by Melton, Cardozo and Trade well, and
probably by-Chamberlain, Willard and Wright.
Tbe negroes have large reform clubs here al?
ready, opposed to the present r?g\me, but lt
depends of course upon'their leaders whether
their efforts wi tl end In any good results. One
step io the rlgnt direction, wblch they have
taken, ls tbe adoption of a- resolution that oo
candidate for office shall be qualified to serve
as a delegate to the nominatiog conventions.
If they will go furtber, and prohibit candidates
from acting as commissioners or as managers
of elections, they will have corrected a crying
abuse ot the last four years.
These reform clubs are In the line of Orr's
policy, and through suchas they, if they can
be organized tn time, be may bone to gain a
sufficient voioe tn the August convention to
withstand the wiles and the gold of the Bing.
He ls probably mistaken 4a his surmise- that
Scott ls playing off Moses and Neagle against
one another, with the design of slipping him
selr In at last. Scott seems about played out,
and ls losing consideration even among bis
own corrupt coterie. He is too big a burden
even for tbe Bing to carry ostentatiously. He
doesn't go out much, and looks sad and de?
jected, Use one wbo knows that his days are
numbered, or more probably like one who ls
conscious of grave erl mes,and, more still, feels
that every one else IB aware ol lu He always
did have a nang-dog look about him, bun now
that he has lost the reverence even of tbe
sycophants and thieves,who have surrounded
him, this dog look has became Intensified.
The best he can hope to do for himself and the
worst for the State, ls to secure his place to
some crony like the younger Moses orNeagle,
and this he will probably , attempt to do.
Moses has decidedly the lead now, and the
final struggle will In all probability be between
bim and whatever .candidate the Orr party
The case of John M. Maokay vs. the 31ue

the officials from disposing of tbe bond scrip

STOKES ON THE STAND.
His Version of the Flak Tragedy.
NKW TOBE, July 8.
Stokes made bis statement to-day. Bis ver?
sion of tbe tragedy Is as., follows : I went up
by the ladles' entrance, and when I got upi
saw a lady come out of the parlor. She turned
away her head, and I saw I was mistaken, and
I started to go down stairs, when I saw Fisk
coming up stairs. He made a rash, and when
ne g..t io the platform he pulled out his pistol.
I could not by any possibility be mistaken. I
saw it so plain aa anything I ever saw. It was
a Bllver-mounted pistol. I was in a line with
film then; so I Jumped aside and said, "don't
dre," and pulled ont? my own pistol and
fired. I had lt in my outside coat pocket or
I wouldn't have bad time enough lo draw.
I leaned on the rall, and cocked with one
hand and tired. He held bis pistol in both
hands, and, as I fired, ho cried, "Oh." He
didn't stagger much at ihe first Bhot, and I
fired again. I knew he would shoot me if I
didn't fire. Ii was three or lour steps down.
He dropped his pistol on the stairs after the
second shot. There was no one near at ibe
time. I had received numerous warnings
that Fi-k threatened to have my life.
Q iesiion. Bid you in ead to hit Fisk when
you fired ? Answer. Tes,, slr..
Question. DIU you know your pistol was
loaded with, four bal s ? Yes, slr.
Hiss Mansfield was aleo on the stand, and
testified that Fisk . was a very moderate
drinker. . She g i ves a curious story, thai Fl t k
cmieJ at Mansfield's house and auld "unless i
returned to him he would kill Stokes." Flak
said: "Y?u had bettor release me from this
thing.'' -Mansfield said: "Tea, ll yon come
out publicly and .acknowledge I was right and
the affidavits against me were frauds." Fisk
said there were so many people involved he
could not. Mansfield saldt "Then. I won't
withdraw." Fisk said. Jerking out a revotveT.
"then I will kill Stokes." I told Stokes, ?Dd
advised him te be careful.
EUGENIE'S DIAMONDS FOB SALE.
The Jewels of the ex-French Em prcis
io be Offered at Auction,
[From the London Newa]
The splendid personal' ornaments belong?
ing to a distinguished lady, whose name will be j
readily guessed, though lt ls requested lt may
not be made known on this occasion, are now
on view at the rooms of the auctioneers,
Messrs. Christie. Manson ? Woods, ana
are to be offered to public competi?
tion on Monday next. Barely If ever
bas such a display -of Jewels ot such high
value and the property of one person been
seen. The last sale of the kind whicn maj
bear some comparison with this was that ol
the Jewels belonging to Prince Eaterbazy.
when among them were sold the diamonds ol
the famous Jacket of the Prince's uniform,
many of whlen, however, were pronounced
by mose uncompromising Judges, the dealers,
not of the "first water." We cannot pretend
lo ihe slightest gift ot an expert In precious
stones, but can merely vouch for tue great
beauly ot most of the ornaments, and Borne
of tbs diamonds appeared to oe liquid gems of
the most exquisite beauty, sparkling like
drops of crystal rainbow, and flashing like lit?
tle suns with every movement.
The sprays ioimed of flowers and leaves,
! encrust ed with .brilliants, are perhaps the
must beaut if ul both in effect ot light and color
andas works ol the Je wei workers' art- The
framework ol these, which Isas usual o? silver,,
is one ol the utmost delicacy, and the desltrps
generally extremely-tasteiul. One es peel al ?y
beautiful ls a rose bud and leaves, (64.). with
one lurge stone below the stalk, winch upon
some fair forehead we could fancy would shine
like a fairy rose. Another ornameot in this
style (78) is a magnificent tiara forming a
spray or leaves, larg* In tne front and.dimin?
ishing at each side, studded all over with bril?
liant. In-oi hers the varying color of the dia?
monds 1B set off with the strong, deep tints
and gorgeous tone of the ruby, emerald and
sapphire, producing the richest effects of
cir. Sixty-five la a bracelet of this kind,
extremely noble In s'yle and beautiful in the
"melange optique" peculiar to well-contrasted
arrangements of color whether in*ornaments
or pictures. A brooch (114.) formed as a
double pink, In brilliants, ls a good example
of floral design in Jewelry. A pendant of bril
Hants and pearla, with a large black pearl
centre and drop (61;) and another one with a
large square emerald, surrounded with b il
Hams, and a pearl drop as large as . sparrow's
egg, are noticeable tor the size of the J -weis
as well aa the chaste beauty ot the ornament.
Perhaps the most exquisitely simple aud
beautiful nf all the ornamenta ls the pearl
necklace (79) ofiorty-one choicest pearls, ail
matched In size, and of that beautiful form
which avoids bel?g perfectly round by the
moat delicate dimples that give such charming
variety to each, and sets them blooming with
those moiling tints which make the pearl, In
Its native beauty, the rival of the diamond.
There is one superb diamond ornament (49.)
a marquise ring, with a pink oval-shaped dla.
mond about three-quarters of an ?nen long,
set round with brilliants, which was formerly
worn by the Empress Josephine. For beauty of
design and admirable work, there la the
bracelet (17) formed of flowers like the "for?
get-me-not" enlarged, the centre being pearla,
and the petals encrusted minutely with dia?
The grotesques, so favored by the cinque
cento Jewellers, are represented In such mod?
ern Instances as the set of a brooch and ear?
rings, formed as guitar, In gQld and enamel;
and lhere is a very quaint set In which that
least sentimental of all quadrupeds, the tor?
toise, is made to do duty, clad la gold and en?
amel, as brooch and earrings. The gold snuff
box, set with diamonds in the form nt flowers,
and besring the cypher of the Khedive of
Egypt in brilliants on blue enamel, 1B ad inter?
esting object as no doubl-lt was presented to
ihe distinguished person ige, on the occasion ot
a visit to me court of the Khedive.
There are thus one hundred and fourteen
lot? ot tbe.ornaments, aud the remaining lots
are lace parasols and fans, all of which are ex?
tremely elegant, one of. the tans bot og carved,
in sandal wood, with Chinese figures and the
letter fi with crowns.
