But there is no simiiarity in a tax levied n ion all the people for a public improve. !tient, and a tax levied upon A for the bens-it, or "encouragement" as the phrase is, of B. There is the gam, difference between them that there is between public bu4inetet led private business. Government has an undoubted right to impose a tax for public purpes. The amount required is suscep'ible of ascertainment, the expenditure is subject to public control and investigation, and the work is demonstrably certain to be performed. In levying a tax upon A for the enc,uragernent of B, the amount of encouragement B will require can never be known ; the use B will make of the money is not subject to the control or investigation of A. or aeybmily else ; and it is not certain that the encouragement afforded to B by the tax will ever enable him to get on without it. voint of fact it never does.

We have got into a ditch sure enough, but it IS not the ditch we were taxed for. PISCESSAME AMULI-XI REEL A ease bow recently occurred lu New York, wbicb tbe phrase "nem...arias of life," sin applied to a lady's wardrobe, has received a pretty liberal interpretation, and will not have a ttedetcy to encourage poor yourg men to marry in fashionable life- It is a well-settled principle of law that a matt mud supply bis wife With the necessaries of life even if site bas deserted him, unless be has availed binwelf of his Own legal remedy by getting a divorce. But be is not bound by any ntcans to supply her with luxe:lea or dress ter hi an extrabagant manner. In the eaie to which se refer, Mrs. Mayer deserted her lord and master. A drewmaker supplied her with various expensive articles of dress. and brought suit mAinst Mayer to recover their value. Amona tars articles purchased by tbe suffering Mrs. Mayer were a silk cloak. purple wrapper, French corset and balmoral skirt. The husband set up the deseition as a defence, end established II by evidence. The Judge stated the law correctly tckthe jury, andexpressed the opinion that the articles named Were notnecessarles; but rather expensive luxuries. 1 The Jun., however, took different view ni the subject, and 'gave a verdict for Um plaiutlff, condemning the disconsolMe Mayer to foot the pill. 'Thus ft seems to be settled that silk cloaks, purple wrappers and halmoral skirts are among the neceesaries of Me in New York. It Is a pity that the suffering Mrs. M. did not better Understand -Isex-right.i.:., She -shoal have purchased a ioech and four ' with footman in kept should have ept up her reception., ptcrvided she had been In the habit of giving receptions, and should have made. them more expensive and brilliant than for-- manly. to show that she could do better' ithout the brutal &act unworthy Meyer than with him. to be were ; and Mayer no doubt would have been compelled to foot all the bills, as be evidently .ought to, since be behaved himself in such a manner that the economical and quiet-minded Mrs. M. was Induced to leave him. This doubtless would have been held by the jury to be neeessary to her station In society, and comecitently a necessary of life. 1 t Now that silk cloaks,o, purple morning wrappers. - French corsets and balmoral skirts have been legally decided to be "mem- canes" '011ie, we anxiously awe the determination of some ease In which "luxuries" will be clearly defined. THE SOVTLI CanoLINA a ETUDE 61111. The report of the Congressional Committee on the murder of certain federal sotdiers in South Carolina, and the release of the assassins by Judge liall on a writ of hakes corpus, after corviction and tiontenes by a Court Martial, reteais eome startling facts. I. It is not clamed that the victims gave Inc provocation whatever for (he spasaluation- There 'la no preence that they were murdered for any other cause than for wearieg the uniform of the United States Government and being in its service. 2. At tne time of the trial of the murderers by the Court Martia;, there was no civil Cow I iri South Carolina that could have tried them. S. Two of the murderers, named Keys, be longed to one of the most prominent families In Anderson, the place where the crime was committed. Blowers, another of the murderers, bad been a member of the Georgia State Beeate. 4. Notwithstanding the utter absence ot prttext or excuse for the crime, the most Prominent min of the South. including Alex. Li. Stephens, late Vice President of the kte Comedtracy, Governor Orr and Herechel V. Johnson Interested themselves in behalf of the murderers, and wrote letters to the Pies ident. Among other documents was a p:tition which Insisted that the President's stowed policy allowed the petitioners to ask with confluence the release of the culprits. b. The prisoners having been disehatged by Judge Hall, United Slates District Judge of Delaware, are at large, and no effort has beer trade to bring them to justice, notwithmending GIL community in which they live sePta to entertain no doubt of their guilt. The taCtS make it clear that,the public sentiment of South Carolina Justifies the assassiration of United States soldiers simply because they are United States soldiers; that the men most prominent in the South ehare ibis feeling of bloody hatred ; that punishment for such crimes is impossible ; that the best families do not regard it a disrisco to engage in assassination, and do not lose respectability in the community by so doing ; and, finally, that the set wed policy of the Pi esident is understood ard construed by the Southern people to be a license tor the murder of Union men. It would be difficult to imagine a more severe e mment on Mr. Johnson's reconstruction policy. or a more thorough Justification kir the Immediate interference of Congress, than are furniehed by theYe facts. HE ALM ehAC AllGURIE111 If Ho. ace Greeley has no better reason for supporting the Tariff Bill than the tact that be and Henry Clay coma itted a similar lolly a quarter of a century ago, the tact that be and Mr. Clay got defeated would seem to be an ahswer to that. It would not be a conclusive answer to the arguments which they employed In 1844. but it would be a conclusive answer to the plea of antiquity which H. G. lays so much stress on. There are a great many blunders which can prove their right to exist by an sopeil to almanac. The 114 urbona can prove their right to half a dozen European thrones by the same argument. There ta one thing that H. G. cannot prove by the almanac argameat. Be .cannot prove that the country wee ever carried In a Presidential election by a party which made what is falsely called "Protection" an issue in its platform. So thoroughly was Mr Clay defeated in 1844, and so odious bad the doctrine become, that the Whig National Convention of 1848 did not dare to adopt a resolution in favor of IL. In 1852 they adopted it again. in the mildest milk-and-water form, and wereagaln beaten, carrying only four States. No party has ever been able to carry that load and live. ur The New York Tribune addresses Itself to " the Western Republicans who used to be Whigs," and exhorts; them to back up Ps prohibition and contraction IbIlles. It forgets that a full third of the Republicans of the West never were " Whig.," or prohibitionists ; and without their votes and support the Republican party in the West would be in a vastly worse minority than ever was the Whig in its worst days, as tens of thoupands ot former time Whigs of the Conservative stripe long since ju!ned the Copperhead party. and have been the worst and messiest Bourbons hi that organization. The Republicans of the West, like old Zech. Taylor, woo was a "Whig but not an active Whig." are for a tariff but not an ultra tariff, such as H. G. and the prohibitionists advocate. They don't believe that Western industry Is "pro. tected" by doubling tariff taxation any more than that takirg a gallon instead of a quart of blood out of a man's veins tends to Increase his strength. They are bled now about as much as they can stand, and while they are willing to bleed in pocket or person for the Government they are not willing to be sucked to death by speculating leeches. Does H. G. understand that ? Mr- The Augusts (Os.) Chronicle growls savagely at George Peabody, because, in givisg two millions of dollars for the education of Southern youth, be made no distinction between whites and " Diggers," but expressly prevented any such distinction. It ey it is not especially gmtelhl to the English banker for his donation, " coupled es lit was with a gratuitous insult to the &elk" Because Robert C. Winthrop, William M. Everts and General Grant are among the Trustees, the Chronicle comes to the conclusion that "'the whole affair will be conduct" ed in the special interest of the negro-wor" shippers, and that the effect of such " an organization in the South will " be to keep alive the feeling of " antagorlem between the races hem "and also between the two sections of the " coo( try." The Chrunicle is bard to please. Its idea seems to be that it is a degradation for a white man to receive any bleseing or favor which a negro also enjoys. If it would be consistent in this doctrine, it must call on the Southern chivaly to shut themselves out of the sunshine, since the Almighty has been so regardless of the teeings of the slave-bolding aristocracy as to cause it to fall just as kindly and cheerfully on the "nigger" as it does on the planter. 13"" "Protection to American Industry" is illustrated in pamphlet prepared aod signed by all the sewing machine companies in the United States, addressed to the Committee ot Ways ard Means, in which it is stated that the cost of making sewing machines in this couttry bas become so great that manufacturers are transferring their business to France. A few years ago we exported millions of dollars' worth of sewing machines to Europe. We are now, or soon shall be, importing them from France. New and heavier taxes on iron and steel, added to the increased cost of living, are protecting American industry tamously. The Portsmeuth (N. 11.) Jostersal says that there are more vessels being built in the little province of New Brunswick than on the entire Atlantic coast of the United Strs'es. Exorbitant taxes on iron, copper, timber and cordage are responsible for enriching the British Provinces at the expense of the American ship carpenters. nrlin the trial of a ease recently In Cincinnati, it was disclosed that there is no law In that State to punish Justices of the Peace tor acceptirg bribes- The omission Is accounted for upon various grounds, but the most plausible esplanation is, that as Justices of the Peace never so to the Legislature, or If they do, are never Justices thereafter, there has never been any striking necessity for providing against bribery on the hio. part of that branch of the judiciary of O rir- We are assured that the Cairo Penitentiary scheme is all right and proper, end that untold thousands of taxes ought to be cxpeuded to build such an Institution forty feet Wow high water mark.

"; 4IB SISih aS Shy- look.; ss . N., Khe 'flatlet Criticism of the Play Crlitelsed. (special Correspondence of the ffinearo Tribune.) New Vona, February Oa--Were there &market kw Ltteratureaad Drama, as there is for " loth ot muttons, beeves and stoats," we should see announeed among the quotationaz. "ilihskspeare with an upward tendenci." For. this genes lookivg up" we have to thank Mr. Ed. 'Win Booth, who is certainly doing more than kirjt actor in Amesica to keep the public's Interest to Shakepeare alive. Hamlet., with its weeder of one hundred nights, Richelieu, ulth its great success or last spring, stand god-lathese to the present production of the " Merchant of Venice," whkh, however, unlike Ks predecessors, does not seem to satisfy the great expectations excited in advsnee. , So far as it. critics are concerned, the actors of the Winter Garden must be ready to exclaim "it is the very error of the moon," for almobt every journal of importames lora taken uncommon pains to express diaaatiefaetion at the last "revival." Why this change in critical tactics, why this suddea outpouring of candor, it is impossible to state with any degree of positiveness. I think t must be in the air, for it is certainly epidemiclike cholera and other malignant diseases. Naturally a large body of the public do not understand it.. Nevertheless, the critics are on a rampage, and Shake-peas is getting read, or, at least, talked about, with a persistency which is sure to do no harm to the cause of art. The New York Weekly Ileview publishes a translation of Victor lingo's admirable coin mentary on "The Merchant of Venice." by way of teaching people Shakspeare's real Intentions regarding it, and the New Yore Times goes so far as to say that there are momenta in Mr. Booth's performance of " Shy-lock" when he positively rants, throwing Ins arms aloft and making nisibt hideous ; whereupon George, the Count JOSIDLIOS, rushes to the rescue in a long communication to the Erasing Express, in which, to use his own forcible languake, he "buries the critic in the grave of his own deserving." It is a notable production, this of the Count, such as has not been seen since his prospectus to an intended journal, which appeasedthe prospectus, not the journal. nu-rot timatelyabout two years ago. Assuring us that modesty has always been a barrler to his public advancement aud social triumphs, - and that he was long since pronounced by Professor Morse to be the author of the best criticisms upon the Fine Arts that bad ever appeared on this side of the Atlantio"an epitaph sufficient for any bocest inan"the Count, all apropos des buttes, proceeds to tell us how be studied eculpture and modelling under Gibson and tbe Count d'Orsay, the Constitution under Daniel Webster, and International Law under Henry Wheatonall intimate friends of tee Count. of courseand finally " buries" the critic of the Times by catching him on the hip. Said the obnoxious critic of Booth's "Shylock": "In the last act, all the old miserable business of sharpening the knife was perpetrated with a minuteness that was wearisome. Mr. Booth has an unusual brilliant blade ; be sharpens it on the sole of his boot at d tempers it affectionately on the upper leather. Is it not about time that this absurdity be discontinued ? Why not bring on a butcher's steel at onceor, batter still, agrindstone ?" dre. Then the Count, digging his grave, retorts : "Now would not any reader of the above (except a Shaksperian scholar,) believe that the manner of sharpening the knife' by Mr. Edwin Booth, was entirely erroneous and self-conceited, merely to be different from other Shylocks? That he had no authority for what be did ? That it never hid been so illustrated ? Mr. Booth, however, and every true tragedian and lover of the poet's works, is commanded by Makspeeve himself, how, when and where Shy-lock shall make his trenchant blade keen, as a sacrificial knife, upon the altar of his mad revenge against the Christie victim. a Mark I reader math the immediate language of the poet, concerning the very scene in question, viz.: Bassanie. Why dm thou isita Ciy kovs so (enact ly Shijitperk.--'10 cut the forfeiture from that bank-root there. Otatiano.Not on thy sot, but on thy soul, harsh Jew, thou n skeet My halls keen," ilseWith this war-whoop the Count scalps his advemry, declaring, meanwhile, that similar maiicious suppressions of tbe truth as to quotation; has made Senator Charles Sumner " the scorn of scholars, the mockery of men, the witless wonder of women, and the most Insensate of Senators and states men," for which duplicity he, the Count. tubliely exposed him, the scorn of seholars, in his, the Count's, oration at old Fanettill Hall, Boston, In reply to his, the witless wonder's, speech upon the Foreign Affairs of the Republic. (It is refreshing to once more bear Chsrles Sumner called "pet names." I was lieginnine to think that the art had been lost with the abolition of slavery. There le hope.) It is unfortunate for the Times' critic that he should have made so bad a blunder w;th regard to the knife. 8hat:41)mo most ae . euredly indicates its sharpening by Gmliano's most wretched play upon the word sale, which at the time is out of place even in the month of him who talks 1' an infinite deal of nothing." Ignorance of the text, and not malice, I take to be the cause of the Times' mistake, yet that the whetting of the knife Is "miserable business," is, in spite of Shakepeare, most true. An action so common, so vulgar, converts a tragic scene into comedy ; no amount of genius can make it dignified, and a laugh from the audience is the result. In the day" of Burbadge, when Shylock was made a burlesque, this butanes might have been highly effective, but surely not now, and it does not mend the matter to know that all tragedians go through the same disgusting pantomime. All commentators, I believe, have decided that Shakapeare bore no malice in his heart toward Jews, but that he alone in his gene. ration endeavored to stein the current of popular prejudice by this very creation. of Shylock, giving to him Christian passions Such being the case, I do not arse why the introduction ofthe knife with its accompanying pun, might not have been made for the gratification of Shatspeare's own times, and those times being past, I do not see why the action need longer hold the stage. Censors do not hesitate to cut such portions of " The )feschant of Venice" as are offensive to the moral sense ; surely. then, there is no good reason why that which offends the artistic sense should not be pruned sway. " Palms to woo, Adams in onsaibess," exclaims the Countiloannes, inferring that because the Times has made one slip it cannot be credited when pronouncing judgment upon Mr. Booth's "Shylock." But II this Latin quotation holds good, what is to become of the Count himself? "Mark I nudes I mark I" "Shylock cannot be a rich man since he has recourse to his friend "rubel, a wealthy Hebrew of his tribe,' to furnish him even with the email sum of three thousand ducats." Not rich ? Launcelot distinctly speaks of himself as "the rich Jew's mars," making Shylock tbereby especially rich among a community ofJews as famous for their wealth as for their greed. Bassani, too, when applied to by Launcelot for oto, ployment, wonders how It can be prefer-meet, " 10 leave a riot Jae service, to become The foilower of so poor a gentleman." And Shylock does himsellconfess that be makes his sold breed as test as did the fulsome ewes in skilful Jacolea flock. Was there never a rich man that could not lend the gross of three thousand ducats immedi ately upon application ? How diffsrent a tate will Wall street tell I And why. too, may not the difficulty of raisice three thousand ducats have been a ruse to blind Antonio at the accommodative kindness of the Jew atd make him the more ready to sign "tate messy bond?" Having made Shylock a poor man, or, at least, not a rich one. the Count "logically concludes that Mr. Booth "dresses too rich ly," and, moreover, could not, owing to the laws of the Republic, wear silks and velvets, Jewsespecially money-lendersbeing obliged to assume a peculiar and degrading costume. Consult Knight, who is, perhaps, se good an authority as the Count, and you will be told that the only distinction exacted of the Hebrew race was, among men, the wearing of " an orange-tawny bonnet," which can be seen on Mr. Booth's 4 bead every night he performs ' "Shylock." Shakspeare refers to the "Jewish gaberdine," but as every nation renders the word differently, and as no investigator has yet decided the precise meaning of such an article of apparel, it really would seem as though Mr. Booth might be allowed to wear hie present dress In peace; it in no way strikes the eye as costly, being sombre and unpretending in color, however rich it may be in material. As "the Count" claims to be "the champion of truth," it is quite pathetic that he, too, as well as the critic of the Times, should be caught tripping. If dressing were an the fault to be found with Mr. Booth's "Shylock," one might la. deed rejoice, but unfortunately it cannot be said, " Thin b the Jew That sibakapeare drew." Wishing that Booth's conception of the thwarter were all our fancy paints U. the critic is forced to shake his head is very posnave diveut. The Timm is right hi charging Mr. Booth with being melodramatic ; r ght. too, is theWorid in saying that "the lion leaps before he bas crouched." From the beginning Mr. Booth is harsh, loud and unnatural; there is so licht and shade, and not until his mit from the Senate Chamber cau we 4ery ," Bravo!"

The theatres have preduced aot hing worthy of note. The singing birds haven't uttered even a peep. The we ither hat, been shocking. Business has been blue. My ' friends, the counter jumpers, have shown their goods to imaginary enstomors, made imaginary change, and done up imaginary bundles, just to keep their bands in. The bould Finnegans" in green raiment tramped about the city, followed by admiring crowds of Eaties and Biddies, and put down buddies of the "crater" over the latest bulletins from Elliarneyand all the time it has snowed atd mined and thawed wit h a persistence worthy of death when he gets bold of the deceased Ablest. Some infatuated poet has declared that : e. Into emelt the some rain must fad." I wouldn't object to "some rain," but do protest against having a freshet fall Into my life. I am unskilled in the fist-boat businese, and dismal In a dug-out. A hippopotamus in the reeds of tue Nile la not favomble to Lotos eating, neither is an alligator sunning himself in a swamp a very cheerful creature. and yet, if the present weather confebraes lone, one will need all the attributes of the platypus to make existence endurable. I doubt whether In such weather as this the Representatives of the people at Springfield can get up animation enough to look after their little stealing& I judge so, from the fact that my bill for vacating that part of the South Division bounded by the South Branch, Michigan avenue, Adams and South Water streets, which is now comparatively unproductive, and presenting it to me ; further, authorizing me to have the monopoly of the sale of dry goods in the city ; further, authorizing the City Comptroller to issue city bonds for the payment of the sumptuous warehouses I shall erect and the stocks I shall import regret to say that this little bill, which seems to me a very moderate demand, has not met with the consideration due to it or its author, although I sent down a strong lobby weU supplied in ha cuisine and purse. A little cuss from the rural districts who thought he saw in it a scheme to plunder the wool-growers and make his wife pay less for her calicos and Alexanders, intimidated the fellows I bad secured, and they went back on me and sold themselves over my head to the Sprinefield Ring, on the new State House question. And all this happened because I didn't know their price. When my next bill goes down, I shall find out their top Moues. Which reminds me that I have received a note this week from an irate individual who really believes that the Philharmonic Society is alive and proceeds to go into me, hors-, foot and dragoons. The following extract, verbatim et literati, ee petal:twain, will be sufficient : "There is a tinter is the tribune of these morning wtio have undertaken the task of a cnticker on &to musik given by he Philloino last sigst there is an old proverb saying do not cast pearl tor acme that proverb are soickmy applymble on our elided er ne like criucker hut it nine; Man-ate from a search eumeatly able it its task it is iiissv for anybody to prodliCe such a sweeping charge as that refer ed to soave but It takes talent to produce a cause there Is what it pie-tends." Exactly sot My dear fellow, whoever you are with your confoundedly bad English and worse sense, you are a genius. I recogthe flights in you whickl do not see in other people. I like you, but in spite Of your abuse of "the critteker," whatever that is, let me tell you that the Philharmonic is deaddeader than a herring. I saw it when it died. I was one of the chief mouruens. I sat up with the 1)&4 and I adorned it with camel'ss and immortelies In respect to its memory atd the good it had done. And I condoled with the relatives of the lamented deceased. There is nothing more unpleasant in this world than dftial people that won't stay dead, but have unpleasant habits of coming up out of their graves and stalking about in their shrouds, territying good honest people who have not yet left their fleshy tabernaelet ana would, what is ' more, never prefer to do so. Now. my friend of the broken English, this Is what ails the Philharmonic. It will not recognize the fact that It is dead ; that there is no speculation In its eyes, but keeps marching on like John Brown's soul, harrowing up the feelings of the friends of the deceased, who buried it under the sod long ago, and whose stated time of mourning is up. Unfortunately there Is no statute against vagrant ghosts and we may be subjected for some time to come to Its unearthly visitations and to such feeble concerts as that last Monday. You must not suppose, because nothing appears on the surface, that the Great Organ for the Young Men's Christian Association has been given up. The committee are vigorously at work, and will shortly receive proposals from the prominent Eastern organ builders. The Y. hi. C. A. propose to have, and, what iciness, will have the best organ and handsomest organ case in the United States, which will be bad for the provincial places such as Peoria, St. Louis, Boston, Kankakee, Detroit, New York, and Animists. There is nothing more shocking than a high forehead on a woman. Granting that it denotes Intellect, It de.racts from beauty, and not until women assume the duties of Senators and Judges should they transform themselves into models for Gall and Spunbeim. The prevailing fashitin now is for the low foreheada fashion endorsed by every law of beauty and taste. We have no finer models of female beauty than the antiques of Greeceno lovelier types than the Yen-uses and Phryves of antiquity, the Madonnas of Raphael, the blardalenas of Murillo and Titian, and the living peasants of the Campagna, and the senoritas.of. Seville all elorying in the low forehead. Horace, Catullua, Ovid and Anacreon have sung its praises, and at last our own women have apJ predated the fact that a high forehead may tecome Shakepeare and Bacon, a Roman Senator or an Italian monk, but not woman, especially when obtained at the expense of hair, ruthieesly compressed behind the ears or barbarously shaved off, giving one the impression of pin feathers. The Ware of bait sweeping over the forehead, which makes a man look like an ass, makes woman look anpremely beautiful. Caesar, with his bristly hair brushed ritraight down imam his forehead, looks like a brute, while Julia, with her thin crescent forehead. bordered by an undulatory selvage of hair, is a type of womanly beauty. A more hideous sight than a woman with every hair on her head drawn back to its utmost tension, and terminating in a huge unseemly wad at the back of her neck, distorting every feature and throwing the whole face out of its true expreselon and out of vatural repose, I cannot conceive, unless it is the latest fathion in - - Men's hats. , A fiat-topped, bell-crowned, cassimere, cylindrical horror. As far as form goes when young Boosey and Fitz Henry are on a spree, and I - H. smashes B.'s hat over his eyes to indicate his love for him and the general hilarity of his disposition, young B. at that interesting moment has a hatjust in the fashion. It Is a comfort that I have not got to wear one of these things, and equally a comfort that latitude prevails in the mttter abate. The style is usually the one least worn, and it may be set down as a general rule that every man wearing a bat, from the old soft. slouchy veteran of years' wear to the latest silk stove-pipe; is In fashion.

The court referred the disputed account to an expert, and deferred its judgment. Some of our Chicago ladies can pay better prices than these without winking. I cannot close is ithout telling the ladies some points about the new spring bonnets. The style differs but very little from that now In vogue. Of coarse they are not any smaller, for that is impossible, but they are more convex, and differently shaped. The advantage ot the present style is that three. eighths of a yard of material is sufficient, and that any lady possessing enough ingenuity to make a pin-cushion can be her own milliner, while those who purchase their own material can get up very stylish head gear at a very little cost. The importation of artificial Bowen will be very limited. They are to be very little used, while drooping and manufactured feathers are so expensive as to be beyogd the reach of the majority. The principal ornamentatim used will comprise detached leaves and other devices, With glass pendants, and a few of these will go a long way. In caors there seems to be nothing new. The bonnet silks left over Item last year will answer as well for this. The ladies wilt exhibit their chine; roe the bonnets are to be i.led behind thew mot.

My Dear Friend t Probably ;nothing, bat this rain storm would have en-shied -IDe to write you front here., Glace to the nuelstrom of Washington life, you know, it is almost impossible to steer out of its whirling routine into the calmer waters of an otdinary, leisurely existence. bad begun to fear that I should never be able to draw a long breath again, BO Wailed Wive I been from one place to another about this vast city ; but this dull day, with its Leery rains, has put me off duty, and, as I sit here quietly in my " sky-parlor reaching heavenward far," I feel its coming to have been a benediction. - There is always much to do, of course, in this gay capital, and just now there is more than usual. There are hundreds of strangers here; for some reason or other a great itathcHng of Generals ; and social life seems to have reached its high tide of gayety. At the President's levee there was "a perfect mob"to use the words of a Senator's wile. And,indeed, it was promiscuous enough to suit the most ultra stickler for social equality. There were young and old, gentle and simple, rich and poor ; eves y class of society was represented, from the polished man of the world to bun who elbowed his way amongst the ladles with his hands in his pockets ; and all shared equally in the discomforts incident to such an enormous gathering. The richest velvets and most delicate laces, the flimsiest muslin. and shabbiest bareges were alike trodden on and mangled by the impartial crowd. It were a hopeless task to describe some of the sostumes that emerged from the outpouring mass about half-past eleven. A modiste would have gone disiiracted. One lady, in a dilapidated tarletan, with her chignon looking like a badly-used mop, ex. claimed, with some asperity and much truth, as her exhausted escort faintly called the number of their hackmen : "This Is enjoyment, I suppose I Pm about ready for paper rags, are'nt you? I feel bumped all over." Another lady fainted, and anotheran acquaintance ot minelost all her wmps in the dressing room, though for that matter many went home without their cloaks, and several gentlemen, then and there parted forever with their overcoats and bats. But my warmest sympathies were with that unfortunate man, a member of the Congressional corps, who lost the skirts of his best broadcloth swailow-tail. Though be had a lady on each arm the mithiesa throng deliberately pulled them off (not the ladies, but the coat skirts,) and "he had the Insanity," said one who was describing the acne to me, "to stop and try to search for them." An amusing commentary upon the lawless' nese that prevailed outside, as well as in, took place while we were waiting for our camiage. On a marble-topped table stood a tin pail of ice-water. I looked inquiringly, astonished to see such a utensil in the vestibule of the Executive Mansion. The little black boy who sat swinging his legs from the table thought. I suppose, that I was thirsty and returned my look with one of commiseration as he said : "Taint no use, Misses; they've stole de dipper." Is it strange that Europeans who frequent such entertainments as these complain of our barbarous customs and call us an uncouth people? Though we suffered from the crowd in our labored progress toward the Bane Room, where the President stood for three and a half hours, shaking bands with the multitude, it was pleasant to find a breathing space In the East Room. Here strains of music and the perfumes of flowert filled the air, and beautiful women with indefinitely long trains, walked up and down by the side of distingtdshed men, or stood in little groups that constantly shifted like the colors In a kaleidoscope. Their magnificent dresses and the uniform of an untold number of of& cers, against the back ground of the newly frescoed walls, inade a brilliant scene. Here were also present the usual number of pretty young girls, with the inevitaole peplum and one long curlsmiling much upon men with titles and less upon civilians not so blessed, but "making round eyes," as the French say, at all, and, bke the youth of the sterner sen, invariably and ingeniously misapplying their adjectives. One young miss, in straw-color, said to me in a breathless artless way, "'Your firs; visit to Washincton? Have you seen the Cab-pi-tol yet? It's such a pretty place I And did you go down to Washington's tomb that is to be or was to have been? It's so nice We went yesterday morning, attl a gentleman in the party ahead of usthe author of that lovely book, 'The Trooper,' was mistaken by the Oict negro for Grant. Were you at the General's last night ? In all that shocking jam ? Wasn't it awful Have you seen Mrs. Sprague yet, and isn't she errand?" Now just at that moment Mrs. Sprague was floating by on billows of exquisite lace, sparkling with smiles and diamonds, and " grand" was the last word to have spplied to her. The terms used by the lit:le girl in straw-color, in speaking of the Capitol and Captain Adams' clever book, however, would have been very appropriate. She is " pretty" and " lovely ;" piquante atd fascinating, too, but hardly " grand." Without being strictly beautiful she has a charming countenance and a certain winning grace in all her movements that is at the same time deprecatory and winning. An indescribable sweet way of shutting up her eyes when she laughs lends her face an uncommon chasm, and gives one the desire to see her smile again. She bas the same "cameo-like delicacy" of feature that Willis need to remark In AMtrican women, and all the vivacity that one can have after the wear and tear of many seasons o-f fashionable society. At her father's reception on Wednesday evening she received his guests with exceeding tact and elegance. Indeed, it is for this specific talent, I believe, that she is considered remarkable. Amongst the distinguished guests present were George W. Curtis, George Peabody, Rossiter, the artist, Senator Morgan and General Sheridanthe latter 'looking as unlike the conventional idea of a hero as Grant does, though if one has an eye for phrenological developments and otserves his organs of combativeness, it is not difficult to recall the lines in Buchanan Read's line dramatic poem, commencing : Then strikug his spurs, with a terrible oath. Be dashed cosi,' the dne mid a worm of bursa And the wave of retreat checked Its course then, because The eight of its mister compelled it to pause.. I think, the General a most agreeable man, ociaby. Re talks well and to one's entertaitment, particularly when relating his adventures in the Far West. His first experience of the frontier took place when he was sent out from West Point. And since then, he says. he has always returned to the plains and mountains with renewed delight. To the hardihood acquired by that wild life he owes much of his subsequent success. He Ones himself, be tells me, always wishing to escape to its freedom and novelty. And, though he talks so well, I hardly think the General was destined by nature for a man of society. He is too earnest and sincere to enjoy frivolity, his views are too broad, his Instincts too true. He is more at home in a sadd'e than a rocking-chair, and a mountaintop flushed with the sunrise is a far more enticing view than the gayest ballroom scene, though it be resplendent with woman's beauty. He said to me, one day; in reply to my remark that these public men In their lives of hurry and worry and bustle were to be pitied. "Yes, I get little opportunity to sleep here In Washington. And I'm so bewildered half the time that I lose everythinghat, gloves, handkerchief, pocket-book--all I have but, one thing." "And what is that ?" (Laughing)--"Oh, that's my heart." Another Officer whom I have found a most agreeable man is General Banks. Like Sheridan, he is one of the few who has not disappointed my "Great Expectations." I shall always remember the pleasant impression I received when I first saw him at the Capitol. He interests himself with most successful energy in the decorations of the building and manifests discrimination and taste in all that be undertakes. He explained to us a plan be had for making a portrait-gallery of , the chamber we were then inthe Speaker's room ; portraits which should be authentic likenesses of all the Speakers of the House from the first one down to the last. His plan has already had a partial realization. There are some links wanting in the chain, bat those will soon be supplied. Two fine photographs of himself and two more of Mr. Colfax are not among the least attractions of the place. We were not fortunate enough to bear the General's fine speech on Reconstruction, which we very much regretted. It is said to be tbe best of the session. Of course, we have visited the Patent Office, where we were bewildered by the countless examples of human Ingenuity there displayed.

Indeed, I strongly suspect that old lady to be a myth, notwithstanding the assertions of some unsuccessful office-seekers. In spite of the meddlesome Mn5.

Iobservedno extravagatee in dress, no coquetry of manner, no improprieties of any sort. though I saw them during a sort freezes when, if et any time, they would be likely to throw off restraint. One'of the officers told 'me what I knew before, that there bad been a superhuman effort made to turn them out, but he hoped and believed it would be unsuccessful ; that they did as well as, and better than, men in the same places, and that the few reports that have crept abroad concerning their Ina-tinny and misbehavior were gross slanders. On Saturday evening we attended a delightful reunion at Secretary Stanton's. It was very like all those receptions ; one met the same people that bad been at the Chief Justice's, the Speaker's, and General Grant's, as well as a fresh invoice of strangers. Of course there were swarms of army officers. What with them and other distirguished men, and their various titles, I was completely embarrassed. The Genemis were as thick as blades of of grass in a pasture. Every other man was a General. For that matter, anywhere in Washington, ore couldn't throw a stone in the street without hitting one. There were a number ot Colonels. and Majors, and Senators, also, azd I found myself applying their titles as indiscriminately as the girl in straw color did her adjectives. Complaining of my dilemma to a young ladythe daughter of a GeneralI was advised to call them all Generals and Senators, as a course sure to give invariable satisfaction. Amongst the notable women present were Mrs. Myra Clark Gaines, Mrs. General Lander, Mrs. Calhoun, of the Tribune, and Mrs. SeLator Sumner. If I had time I should like to say sometbing of these women. but my letter aiready must have taxed your patience. - Good night. V R.. CARRIAG1S ' - The Cosa and Style of arassaossable itt quipages. Prom the hiew York Home "looms'!" To gather a rouud and full idea of the perfection to which carriage-making has been carried, especially within the last ten years, it la only necessary to indulge in a pleasant day's saunter at the Central Park, or to visit any one of our numerous warehouses along Broadway. We say within the past ten years. for it is not more than a decade since the time when even pleasure vehicles were almost as heavy and ponderous as stages are now, and when stages were pondemus as cars of Juggernaut among the Bindoos. Gay bizarreries ot ',Muting, also, as if to render carriages more hideous, were, ten years since, in vogue ; and vehicles of green, vehicles of blue, vehicles of yellow, vehicles ot black,hke hearses, except undraped, and vehicles of parti-color, fantastically Arabesque'd, were mingle and commingled in inextricable contusion. Not more fauchully devised and decorated were the strange cars in which m3 thology caused to tide its gods, than were the oddly-colored and still more oduly-fashioned pleasme boats in' which gallants wade culls, and gay ladies peregrinated, to and fro, and up and down, as did the devil in the book ofJob. In the modern carriage. several advantages have been gainedso obvious that one may wonder that they were ever left out of account. - , - First, in order of mode come the Clarence and the Victoria carriages, both of which are rather massive and magnificent than gay or fanciful, and both of which are equally well, fitted for family carriages in an airiag at the Central Park. In neither of these are ornamental colors often usedthe general cord our nud lipishma being generally unobtrusive. Lamps of glass, of yellow-topaz Hof, enclose blossoms of light on either side of the driver's seat,atd remind the looker-011,st night, of Dickens' queer simile about eyes ; but even these are seldom lighted, and are rather ornaments' than utilitarian, and,beyond these, to ornamentation is used, save the monogram. For gracefulness, we think the preference should be given to the Clarence over the Victoriathough the coupe, phaeton, and rockaway are, it seems to us, more gracetul than either, if somewhat lees exnensive. And, at this juncture, by way of giving an Pea of the number and variety of styles ich have grown up wittin a few years, and of the coat of a stylish equipage, we may set down the names of a tew leading styles, specitsing the:r average prices.

A carriage at this day may be made a moving ralace on wheels, to such perfection has the art of interior decoration been car-led. Most expensive are the trimmings of satin though broadcloth is still considered a good material for cushions. and is somewhat more quiet than the former. Satin costs more than other material, however, and is, there. fore, likely to have an unusual run. - Leather has, on the other hand. been nearly expunged from the alphabet of materialnot being suffickntly sumpstous to snit the taste of our money-maniacs. Clarence Victories, phaetons, and couperockaway s, leadithe stylethough galashes are rekoned quite aristocratic, and receive consitterable patronage from the "upper ten." Meanetime, let our millionaires take their airings at the Central Park, and let not those envy who cannot afford the vehicle. A good equipage is good in its way, but a plentitude of muscle with which Us walk is better, and, ftr many occasions, more available. ART.. othernters Picture ot the Dewitt) lean Court in the Days of 161130.10 From the New York times, February 2114 This picture, which we exhibited privately ISA night to a few gentlemen of the press ki.nd others of the art persuasion, is, as the title would naturally suggest, a -pendant to Huntiug don's celenrat ed Republican Court in the Days of Washington." The two paintings represent the great epochs of the country's historyThe Revolution and the Rebellion. 'Abe work has occupied Mr. Rothermel for two years. and is in every way a remarkable production. It is not easy to arranges mob in a way that may be pictorially interesting to the eye. When this is even attempted, it reaults generally in a formality of lines, pleasant sod easy to pass along, but impossible in the great fact of lite. Mr. Rothertnel has grouped his characters with a nonchalant ease, which contributes greatly to the charm of the picture. This charm is tit course the portraits, which have been studied from the life, and with a sincerity and earnestness which a, e seldom brought to bear on such sukecte. The varioug characters are individualized with skill, and contrasted with a strong sense of color. We give below a senerst description of the alters, and urge our friends to see the work.

Fashions. . - , - I Hid March. ne Prevailing Modes for February Social, Matrimonial and Otherwise. - Ilse trash loam - - Prom Le Pellet). Many ball dress materials are Of great ale. sauce. One of the principal, of a fancy de. acription, is the embroidered silk tulle, the patterns of at hich ate bouquets of a lively shade of silk on white satin, producing& very rich effect. Eistin is, par excellence, the material for full toilet, either for ceremonial visits or evening dress. Striped velvets are much in favor. Amber is a very favorite color for full drat.; but of course it can not be worn by ladies of a fair complexion. For walking costume black is still the favorite, though many toilets of green or blue cloth, or of violet or brown English velvet, are seen. Although the short dress is still worn for morning promenade. it is principally confined to quitrhyoung girls, and is scarcely admissible tux visiting dress. A very few have been seen for hill dress, but we may say the trained skirt is almost indispensable. The make of dresses tends more and more to the empire sty,e, the bodies being so short that the skirt Is close up to the arm. - The bonnets worn for visiting dress have not altered in eluipe since the commence- ment ol the year, the artistic arrangements of the trimmings forming the principal charm. Take, for example, acme of the newest models : A bonnet of light green velvet, rounded in front ; flat crown and small curtain, the whole embroidered with beads, and trimmed with leather (tinge. The inside is ornamented with a magma& in white velvet, with gold centre. Over the curtain wide guides of green satin worked with beads. Another, of blue satin, embroidered in small pearl and crystal beads, trimmed with a is reath of small roses ; strings of moire. A white satin bonnet, the same shape, waa trimmed with an mgrette of feathers and small wreath of tinted leaves and jet Ornaments. Strings of white moires, with others of lace worked with beads falling over them. The new model known as the " Anne, of Bretagne," is rather pointed in front, and tack at the sides, rather in the " Mary Stuart " style. It is made of velvet or satin in light shades. The crown is fiat. and the trent, tottillonce, trimmed with a wreath of feathers, stud at the side a small bouquet of feathers or velvet flowers. Very wide strings, to match the bonnet. An empire bonnet of blue velvet ; the crop n and front in plaits, fastened by a narrow passementerie of white eilk and beade The edge is trite med with a fringe of white feathers and lace. Blue satin strings. A Gramosa, with a at crown of pewees velvet, and narrow, straight curtain, emMoldered with beads. with a fringe of the same all aroulad. The front is trimmed with poull of black marabouts spotted with jet. Sti ings Of ponceau velvet and lace. Another of Bismark velvet, was trimmed with a wreath of ivy and ornaments of jet. Stith ge of moire the same color as the velvet, lined with white moire. A very pretty Mary Stuart bonnet was made of white satin worked with bads, and tiimmed with a white leather, the end of which fell over the point in front. Strin4s of white satin, and hoquet of scarlet geranium at the side. Black velvet bonnets are almost universally worn for moreing dress, with black Meng., and vety little trimming. The same style is also worn for visiting : but those for visits of ceremony should be of colored velvet er satin, trimmed with beads and leathers or flowers. Paris Conveyor dence (February 1) of the New York Herald.' The event of the week is the second reception at the Tuileries. Three thousand invitations were given out, and the three thou- sand attended, in the richest toilets. Alit he geotlemen wore tight silk stockings, ending in a buckled shoe. Their leggings, or culottes, are made of white cloth. and the tails sea collars of their coats worked with gold. The shade of the coat is blue. The enumeration of the ladies' dresses would be but a repetition of the fashions I have described since the opening, of the season. The great feature was satin, which is made efourreau, with the most extravagant lengths of train. A little oval front piece, under the waistband, not larger than the width of tato bands, and which I should call an apron if it were large enough. is the great novelty. No one knows what it is meant for, nor its origin ; no one says it is pretty, but all call it care, and that is supposed to mean something enviable in our degenerate idiom. There were oceans of snowy white organdies worked with floss silk and gold ; plenty of plain tulres covered with white ruche and veporona underskirts, entirely without any other tritarr ing beyond pearl bead lace. All WeePO ei In Hunt, and there were velvet and satin bodies with basques cut in one very low, either round or square. The low chemisette is pleated and edged with an insertion and valenciennes. As I have fr equently said sleeves are mere bundsa puff or anything that will trim reamd an arm hole. A pretty dress I did admire, because it contrasted with the gorgeous glitter around me. It was made of tarlatan, cut in thiee fiat skirts which were own in the waist like flounces of the old school. The bottom of each was scolloped round wide and ,iiied with pink tarattan, which gave the dress rosy appearance. The back oft he skirt was ornamented only with a long sash which widened gradually till it became a train at the bottom. Both flounces and sash were botdered with slightly twisted pink and I. the. The sleeves were a la juive hke wings. The headdress was a cordon of apple Mos. Sete& The Empress wore a yells) satin 40be, I rimmed with bouillons of tut le, under which st one forth dismords in flowers. She had a diadem of the same in her hair. The Imperial family entered the Salle des Marechaux at 9 o'clock. and advanced straight to the throne chairs, between rows of standing and courtesa big guests. To the right of the Empress there sat Prince Napoleon, to the left of the Emperor Princess Mathilda. The ladies of the palace, ambassadors. ate. took seats round their Majesties, all according to rank and station. At 12 they rose and walked through the different reception rooms, after which they entered the galerie de Diane and eupped. Alter supper they retired, but the ball was kr pt up till three in the morning. Emeralds are the favorite jewels this season; green silk is also in crest demand. The great ides is to wear a large quantity of bead and jet embroidery round waistbands on afteturion dresses, some end in very long glass bead fringe. Black noun de sole waitabse da with square basquines. Vandykes and folly points are fanciful trimmings. Never was foulard so much sought after as ft is now, ard no fashion can be more welcome. It is as pretty as satin and not half so expensive ; it is made in the loveliest shades of bleb the following are the prettiest at night : Primrose, wallflower, Parma violet, toseleaf and pea-green. When cleaned they look like new, when creased they are Ironed, when stained they can be washed. Feathers and feather bands are and will be fashionable for some time to come. Striped silks are trimmed with plaited ribbon, en tabber, and round the bottom crape plaits are much wont round bonnets ane left to bang entwined with flowers. I cannot admire them. Our spring bonnets will either be very flat or all 'Bolivar" shapehigh up In the air, like coal scuttles, and flat behind.- The prettiest bat will be Ceres, a kind of Watteau, trimmed with bunches of brown berries in a garland of frosted leaves, tied on with maize or straw colored strings. Bonnet strings will be narrow. Prom the London elneen.1 Toilettes made expressly for afternoon driving or visiting are cut en redingote. A pearl grey poplin redingote, trimmed up the teams of the skirt with narrow cross-cut bands of bite sato, is the fashionable after-neon outdoor toilette ler a youthful married woman. Lace is again worn on afternoon dreamts intended for weddings, visits, and (Sher ceremonious occasions, and it is usually arranged above the pleating which borders the skirt. Beaquirtes litting the figure and trimmed with fur are again very popular ; they are so much more graceful and becoming than the short loose paletot, therefore their reintroductian is easily understood. Black velvet yalmas bordered with fur are likewise made ; they are lined with satin of some bright color, such as certse or violet. The prettiest form of abort dresses is the skirt straight found the edge and cut up at the sides ; this style harmonises best with the short, stiaight raletot, likewise cut neat the sides. A most becoming toilette of this kind is arranged as follows : A plain naerrat silk petticoat ; the skirt is nacarat velvet bordered with astrachan ; a small paletot to match, likewise trimmed with astrachan ; a telvet bonnet, bordered with welt curled black feathers, a small white rose ouleide and rbothel at the top ofithe strings. Self-colored English velvet or velveteen was very much worn at the commencement of the same season ; but for the sake of variety, velvet striped with satin has been introduced. It is a very oretty material, and is usually trimmed either with tassels or jet grelots. It is made in velvet of several colors, but the satin stripes are generally black; the petticoats are either made.of the same material or of striped silk. Cashmere petticoats, with a pleating round the edges, are now considered only suitable for trepilge, and they have been succeeded by petticoats, still made of cashmere, but with a straight hem and a border of rich silk embroidery above the hem. , Byron'. Wald of Athens. Tbe admirers of Byron will remember the Maid of Athens, whose charms he celebrated hr song. In the "Pencillings by the Way." over thirty years ago, N. P. Willis described a visit to her. Dr. Felton, who first went to Greece in 185-3, thus describes 118 he met her : 91n speaking of Athens. perhaps I ought not to Omit the Maid of Athens, immortal- ized by Byronnow Mrs. Black, of the Feltssus. The maiden name of the lady was Theresa Maria. She was one of three sisters, all of whom were famous beauties in their day- One of them is the with of Mr. Fit- takvs, the well-known Superintendent of Antiquities at Athens. The third, I believe, is not living. Lord Byron's lines were written In 1810forty-four years ago; and forty-four years make a considerable in the appear- ance both of man and woman ; so that the language of the noble poet cannot be expected to apply, in all respects. at the present day. It is a common thing for travellers in Greece to call on Mrs. Black, with no other introduction than Zoe men sas coop. Not thinking this accidental cele- brity any ground for so impertinet a proceed- lug, it was a long time before I had the pleasure of meeting this lady, as she lives in the Behrens, and now seldom makes her appearance In Athens.

New York Correspoltdence of the Cineir.mod commercial.) Some time ago, a tstart I ing story was told by a sensation hebdomadal in this city, rela- sd tive to what is termed "a golden calf." The calf in question was none other than a foolish young man 'who had allowed himself to run to seed by keeping company with John II Morrissey and other gentry of that ilk. In this society he had Darted with his entire fortune of half a million of dollars. In his " bard-up " moments he resolved upon - beginning the world anew. To this end he enlisted as a landsman in the United States Navy, and is now on board the steam- ship Vermont. Since his enlistment an aunt has communicated to him the fact that he ' has become the posaeeeor of property, in oil r lands, itc., to the value of 400,000. He wears on board ship a diamond cluster breastpin, said to be worth S10,000, and is .permit- ted to wear morocco boots, and to enjoy lux- mint which other embryo salts do not, as far - as the regulations of the navy allow him. The question with him now, I understand IN - bow he may be released from his present po- sition ? I am told that this rich sailor has 1,, been eeen on board the Vermont by persons who were visiting, within a week. I have merely to add that Mr. Golden Calf will best eubserve his own integrity if be will give a very wide berth to the contractors, and if be fete releaaed from the Vermont his safest mode of exit will be by a licensed junk-boat. . ria the East River going through the yard his diamond cluster pin might evaporate. ---....s.. . 7 , The Dampled Chins I kilted the baby ou lin chin, (Just when the nurse-maid turned away) Kissed i he dimple. soft sad sweet . lake hers who should have been ate May.
