the subject of dress. The writer allirms
that modern civilization, and rapid enter

Ku-sia, Germany, Italy and Spain ; and
even the dogged Turk, ai if doMroii to
obliterate from the memory the fact thul
he is at best an intruder on thin side of
the liosphorus, has made some advances
toward the adoption of the flandard dress
of Europe. The following extract will
show the writer's treatment of his sugges
tive theme :
Notwithstanding the general uniformity
of European costume, there are certain
differences in style peculiar to the several
nations. In Germany, drew, apart from
otlioial costume, signifies lioth.ng more
than an outward covering for the body,
constructed without any ragard to ivni-
nietry, taste or elegance

attention to the ornament of his person,
is even yet applicable. "Near the front- j

Wo have observed wiih considerable dis.
gust, that this French fashion of peg-topf
has been imported into the RritiMi Isl

dresses thus may be trulv siyled a fi-h out

his figure bears a striking resemblance to
that of a salmon attempting to stand upon
its tad. The truth is. s we have already
remarked, that the English are very
clumsy imitators, and thev thonld never,

and while tossing uneasily upon tho mat

some incoherent expressions, about two
o'clock in ihe morning.

He sat up in bed and soliloquised. "Bar

In about two minutes he was dressing
himself ith his clothes, mj addreesing
himself with the same remark. "I never
seen a bar shut up before."
Having completed his toilet, ho disap

his hands a salver, on which were placed
seven juleps made in the most approved

and he exclaimed: "Hello, strangtr, take

Again tho Arkansas gentleman arose
and went doivu stairs, while 1 lay won
dering what he was about. Soon I heard
a no'-e a- el'a .-.crioua row in the bar-room
below, and hurrying on my garments, I
descended. Several .crsons were hold

difficult operations with considerable skill,
Mr. Rarey then introduced himself into

there some five or six minutes. Ha then

a preparation of cold crenm und cayenne
