Among the many treasures owned by the "iaer- j cbaDt prince,'- is a magnificent carpet, which was onoe intended to grace the halls of royalty, having been manufactured for the Emperor Napoleon. Its siz3 is about forty feet square. The centre piece is the most prominent object, occupying nearly one-half of the whole arena, representing a beautiful oval-shaped piotureset in a gold frame, and suitably hung; would at a distance be easily mistaken for an elegant painting. This picture shows the harbor, oastle and surrounding country of Marseilles, France. In the foreground one is charmed by the blue water, and the stately ships at anchor; iurther back the harbor and ancient castle,rising grand ly in its magnificent whiteness against the green foliage enveloping the base of the mountains which form the back ground, and lift their hoary heads into a blue sky, Hiked with fleecy clouds. Napoleon's coat of arms surmounts the picture, and a L \:iu motto, wrought in gold on blue ribbon-like grouud, lies half unrolled at the base. Immediately surrounding thislove'y picture, in a bed of rioh brown, is a garland of beauti ful flowers, much larger than natural size, but so brilliant, so delicately and accurately repre sented that it seems as if one might stoop and lift the petals one from another. Outside of this garland, and serving as a boarder to the carpet, is a wreath formed of overlapping oak leaves and acorns, also in natural oolors, their various shades of green and brown bleuding in exquisite beauty. It is qu te impossible to give an idea of this w oDderiul fabric, which was made with the needles of poorwnmen, who wrought it in sec tions and set it together, alter the manner of the camel's hair shawls. Its texture is as de licate as a silken robe, and no painter could portray color or detail with greater skill. It actually cost $10,000 to make it. Mr. Stewart saw it at the Paris Exposition and purchased it as a novelty to exhibit to friends who visit his "up-town" store in New York. A Paris correspondent strikes the note of earning as to what we are shortly to expect in the way of fashions. Designs, it is stated, are "not only floral and geometric in their tenden cy. but zoological." Exquisite brocades are sprinkled profusely with lions, tigers, and pan thers. "medieval-looking beats, that are by no meaus life-like in their proportions or coloring, aod far more nearly allied to the fabulous crea tures in stone that decorate a Gothic cathedral than the savage denizens of a modern menage Tia." Artists, it seems, have also gone to mu seums and borrowed old heraldic devices with ?which to ornament the robes of ladies who value their personal appearance. Unicorns, winged bulls and birds are used profusely. Ori ental writing, the hieroglyphics of the ancient Egyptians, Persian arabesques and Chinese and Japanese signs are artistically converted into patterns. One design is mentioned as being "peculiarly pretty;" it is a scrool studded here aod there with keys some three inches long. There are at least thirty sorts of keys of differ ent epochs, capitally rendered. Of all the pleasing novelties, however, which are being introduced there are none to equal a design in ~ which "various insects are introduced." Personal Journalism of late has been considerably exemplified in the conduct of car tain AmcTican newpapers, but there is a papor printed at Port au Prince, Hayti, which has carried the art to the highest stago of perfeo tion. The editor is also a storekeeper, aod this is the manner in which ho makes his news paper conduce to the interests of his store : "Kx-Deputy C. A. 6.,of Caroll, is requested to pay me the few hundred dollars he owes me , sinoe 1868. Mr. I. G., of Petit Goave* is re quested to settle for the $700 be has to my oredit. Mr. M., of the Cape, will please tell me if I ought to lose the $3,000 I paid him for his bouse of Mourne a-Tuff, besides the lawyers' fees. Their names shall all appear in full within fifteen days unless they settle their accounts, aod there shall also be given the ini tials of other tardy payers, aod amounts due fcr subscriptions to Le Peuple, aod the names of men owing me $15,090 for goods." Such a paper as that ought to make things lively in Hayti, whether it ever has news or not. ' ? There is already io Paris a company for oon . dacting fuoerals, aod now we are told in one of Mrs. Lucy Hooper's latest letters that a corporation to bear the same thing in relation to marriages is on foot. The oew compaoy will get up weddiogs ot all prices and dimensions, from the humblest of marriages up to nuptial# fit for a millionaire. The huge deserted buildings of the Magasins Reucis arc spoken of as the probable locale for his new eoterprise. A cbapol aod a branch of the mayoralty will be installed therein, so that the civil and religious marriages can take place under the same roof. A superb resturant and a spacious ball-room for the eosuiog festivities will also form pari of the establishment. Car riages, lawyers, priests, suppers, nay, even the wedding finery, Will be furnished by this enter prising firm. If only they add a marriage agency, .such as seems to thrive in several parts of Paris, to their matrimonial facilities, the whole affair will be perfect, only lackiog au American branch for divorces to carry out the idea to its fullest extent. A sad story comes from France. During the war with Germany a farmer named JRouIIod, living at Baume-le-Rollande, was rudely shot down by the Germans in the presence of his wife and children. The war over, the widow Bold the ruius of her tarm aod went to Paris, where she worked tor the support of her fami ly, At length these were old enough to be plaocd out at service. But the poor woman could never forget the terrible loss of her bus baud aod the ruin of ber family, aod the other day she committed suicide by inhailiog the lames ot a charcoal fire. Oo the table was ^uod the following letter: "The remembrance^ ot the past is too much for me; 1 cannot sup Port it. Now that my children are old enough o earn their own living, I can die in peace and join my dear husband. Adieu 1" Hoarding. - ? m with class 8op 15_\ J" ?' Prince street, Alexa., Ya. Mrs. J. H.
