The paper have ll recorded tiie case r t(.o 11. lV.llr whi clairaoil the V, .ui n 4 mst. . -. right to put on male nttire and thin per ambulate the streets at the risk of draw :.....j, .nrl anhinctinir the nolice to great difficultv and so many delicate and troubleiome 'duties, . that thpy arrested her as the Teal canse of. the obstruction of the highway. Mrs. Dr.. Walker ap pears to be perfectly respectable, and she exerted ber talents as a physician in the army during -the lal rebellion. She talks volubly,' must ' be rather fond of notoriety,, but i very eeasible.f indeed quite strong-minded and ean be indig nant But there is nothing light or dis reputable about, the cnee in any wny, and as a.ttiaUer of conscientious duty and right, she claims to dress in a sack coat and pants; and thathe Bhall not be molested for so doing in any way, either by the- crmrd, the polieeman, or the mag istrate. Has she a right to make this claim ? It is true her dreBS is not so strictly masculine as absolutely to con ceal her sex. The white turnover collar fastened on the throat was such as a lady might have worn. In fact, the dress was a sort of hermaphrodite affair, making it not at all dilficult for the spectators to feel quite certain that it was a woman before them, a woman who was not try ing to conceal her sex, but simply one who claimed the right to don male attire to any extent she chose. . , . The magistrate seems to have thought so too, for after a thorough investigation he allowed her to go, and without repri manding the polici-man for the past, ap peared rather to warn him in future to leave Mrs. Dr. Walker free from moles tation, and to dress as she may choose. The point discussed appears to be whether woman hat the right to dress in man's apparel if she appears to mean no barm to any body, and the magistrate seems to have decided it in her favor, throwing the hnrden of proving evil on the accuser. There is a passage in the laws of Moses on this suhject, which may at least be brought forward as showing that from tha earliest stages of civiliza tion to the present time a different view has prevailed : "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman s garment, for all that do so are an abom ination unto the Lord thy God." The public generally think as the policeman did, that for a woman to walk the streets dressed in male attire, is an offense against public manners and morals, now. Not that the laws of Moses are in any way binding necessarily upon us, but because they are among the most gener ally recognized expressions of public morality extant, having formed the basis of our institutions as modified by Chris tianity, and thns indicate to ns that great, law of social usages which is es- n Imman woll.rP the irrei-t .code of natural and nniversal morality. . .. . . i . i . .L : White we nave no cioud, ini .um female doctor may be respectable, and not mean any barm, every sensible wo man will see that any dress which can draw together obstructing crowds, is onbeceming to female. All that tonds to confound the sexes must be favorable to Immorality, und society has and must have the power to protect itself from un seemly conduct, ybere it becomes inju rious to the peace, and where all history shows that it leads to mnch lhat is evil. Ladies may change their fashions as they please in other respects, but all that tends to confound the apparel of men and women, must be foolish and wrong. Philadtlpkia Ledger. , -Lf zaak of Katars.

Dodd, a blatant Republican, and Chairman of the Republican County Central Commit tee, has been arrested on a charge of ruining a young girl living in his family. In Dodd's case some of the more repul sive features which characterize that of Tucker, are wanting. , His victim was a girl of more mature years, and was not bis sister-in-law. " ' A curious fact is mentioned in relation to the birth of Dodd's illegitimate child. Dodd is a vain, pompous fellow, very much addicted to the wearing of yellow buckskin gauntlets. Dodd was rather disposed to deny the parentage of the child, but it is said that a freak of. nature has effectually debarred repudiation of the infant We have it, from Republi cans who profess to have seen the phe nomenon, that the child was born with a very fair representation of. gauntlet I , , Dodd is said to- be a pecuKa msa.

A i A London ball differs in.some respects from one in New York. Young ladies cannot go without an elder lady, or a male member of the family; and after each dance the girl is brought up end delivered to her mamma orchaperone. Ladies cannot go to the refreshment room without the escort of a gentleman. On arrival, about 1 1 o'clock, you go to the tea-room for a cup of tea or coffVe; there will be nothing on the Inhle to sat isfy Imager in the least, though abun dance for show. During the evening ice cream is served in teaspoonfuls to ladies who are fortunate enough to get a male escort, and trifling knick-knacks as be fore, fit to be admired, but not ea-en, fill up the table. The ice-cream is always provided and served by a confectioner, who contracts to serve ices for a speci fied number of guests; consequently it is bis interest to deal it out in as small por tions as possible, and as no lady likes to ask for more, a traspoonful is usually her allowance. The supper is served about one, and is always cold. There will be cold chicken and bam and tongue, lobster salad and pates, game birds with plumage on, raised game pies, ornamen tal cakes, for show merely ; poor allow ance of fruit, and champagne and other wines. Oysters are never served cooked, nor is there any ice-cream. Altogether, Ik enUtrttunment would be laughed at by a hungry New Yorker, though the ta bles are made prettv with flowers and wax candles. Gas light is thought under bred, aud so is a young lady's ever walk ing alone in the street, even in the day time. Young girls are kept in sucU tight leading strings they are glad to bo mar LARGEST CITY CIRCULATION'. ried..- It is amusing to bear the English talk of "Americans attacking ana de molishing a supp"er." The viands here do not blunt the edge of appetite. What is the delicate wing of a small cold chicken to people who have danced nearly all night? . . The Last Eruption of Mount Etna. M. Fouque, who visited Sicily at the time of the last eruption of Mt Etna, has published an interesting paper on the subjeot in the Rtvut Colemporaine. He jays: 1 - - During oar journey around Sicily the appearance of eruption has considerably modified. The lava, which seemed nearly stormed at the moment of our departure, had suddenly acquired uew intensity about the middle ot Juarcn. in me course of two days an enormous stream of lava had traversed the interval com nriaerl hetween the Due Monti and Mt. k: . . . .. . j .c Urisirno, and tnen passing westward oi that eminence, bad dashed into a deep ravine in the direction of Lingua-Orossa. lf it continued so for a few hours longer the fiery torrent would have naturally trot into the midst of vineyards and bouses by merely following the slope of the soil, terror was at us hirui amuns the ceonle threatened with the catas- trophy. They, being grossly ignorant and superstitious, imagined that St. Igna tu, the patron of Piedmonte, had turned the Bcourge opon Lingua-Grossa in order to save the commune of which he was the protector. The measure of ex pelling his image from the chapel Delia Vena was being seriously aiscussea. Had it been carried out it would inevit ably have led to a bloody collision be tween the inhabitants of these two places ; but, fortunately, the fiery torrent sud denly stopped. Other streams - were subsequently formed higher up, and during our second atav at Mount Etna the lava invaded the whole space that had hitherto been spared between Mount Fmmento and Due Monti, leaving only here and there a few hillocks still covered with vegetation, like islands ia a waste. The eruption! of lava,' either in a solid or liquid form, gradually abated. Thus, while at the nntapr atnnpa ejected from the lower crater rose into the air to the liight of eighteen metres, that is, aoout lorty times the altitude of the column of the Place Vendome, toward the end they hardly reach the brim of the crater, so that about the middle of May I could stand on its highest crest and mnkextrigonometn- cal furveys. A Boarding-house Story. The New Orleans correspondent of the Franklin Banner is responsible for the following: An amusing incident occurred at one of our large and fashionable boarding houses a few days ago which has caused not a little blushing and scandal in I but resnpctable establishment A Cuban Don, whose numerous trunks nnd gene ral appearance indicated wealth, not a great while since arrived with bis lady at the above establishment, and engaged the principal suit of rooms. The lady was pretty and lively, the mantiera of both were pleasing, and they become the gen eral favorites of the house. A soirre was given one eveaing in their honor, and their ignorance of American usages, their bizarre style of dressing, and their unre served manners contributed not a little to the pleasure of all. But the funny part remains to be told. In the mid.-t of the general hilarity the guests were startled by the appearance of a Jesuit priest The ' polite hoitess received bins 'gra ciously, but thought he hud mnde a mis take. . , But no he said he hnd been invited to perform a marriage ceremony which was to take place in that house. Now she was certain he was mistaken, and there was a slight titter in the fashionable as sembly at the expense of the good father. But at this moment the Cuban Don came forward with bis lady leaning apon his arm, and with a charming nairrtte of manner, and in the most amusing broken English, begged to explain that he was the party referred to ; that he had become so enamored of the many good qualities of the lady leaning upon his arm that he had determined to be generous, and offer her his name, and that he would feel obliged if the gentlemen and ladies pres ent would act as the attendants. At this unexpected explanation and suggestion there was a very considerable mice re vealed, and the maids and gnrrnns d'honeur were not forthcoming. The happy couple received notice to quit next dttJ- His Fiddle Cait. ' The old citizens of Jackson who re mained here during the war will notice the letter published below from Mr. Wis dom, of Athens, Ala., and govern them selves accordingly. It seems Mr. W. was once on a time "sogerin" in this city and deposited with a friend a fiddle ease which he desires should be returned. From his letter, which we publish verba tim, below, the fiddle case saw service at Port Hudson and various other places, and he wishes to preserve this compan ion of his dangers as a memento of the past By all means let Mr. Wisdom, of Athens, have his fiddle case.
