'does not become us to comment at length
upon the result. The Democrats seem to have

[Fria, Le Rollet.l
As all our fashiontibles are now at the sca-side,
if we Weald ascertain the iittode we Must follow
theta to 'their ratriatis;, aruleveu Then we shall
have some diffmulty in deciding; alit is well known
that fashion is far less arbitrary at these plasm
than in Paris or London.
The first thing we notice is, that hats are almost
exclusively worn, although groat variety exists In
the shades and trimmings.
The bateliero is very largo and quite round, and
is suitable for children. The Clarence is smaller
and slightly raised at the sides, edged with a lace
forming a fall,' and trimmed with one or two feath
ers, fastened in front under a how of ribbon, and
trained round the crown.
The mousquetaire Is the greatest favorite. It is
smaller than either of the others, and when trimmed
with a lace fall and ribbons, or feathers, is very
elegant and generally becoming.
Quilting dresses are much and "well work."
This material is very suitable for the sae-side,
being rather heavy; and it has been brought to
such perfection,both in texture and design, that
it makes at e same time an elegant and useful
• -
With 'a colored quilting robe a white burnous
may be worn, while over n white one a. Tunisian
shawl aux mills contours, has a very good awe.
We have soon worn by some ladies a kind of loose
paletot, of ooutil or nankin, edged with a bright
color or with plaid. Tho effeot is very pretty. It
may be worn , over the dress or, in very warm
weather, with a shirt only, in which ease a plaited
ohemieette with long sleeves, plain collar, and
turned-back wife, has a very good effect.
At a resent sailing match, which was witnessed
by a large crowd of fashionables, wo noticed seve
ral superb toilettes. Among them was a dress of
brown taffetas, with broad stripes round the skirt
of lilac and black chinees. The body was buttoned
in front and pointed behind and before. Over this
was a black hoe shawl with a deepfrill The bon
net was composed of white crape over lilac silk;
the front and the curtain were edged with narrow
black lace, as was a broad lilac ribbon, placed In
the form of a fanchon. On the side of the front and
inside were large boqueta of hardens d'or.
Another was a muslin, in small checks and
spotted, having seven flounces, with .a ribbon in
the hems. A rico straw bonnet, trimmed with a
ribbon, a long feather Moss the front, and a largo
black mantle, eempletOr the simple yet graceful
One which attraoted muohadiniration wet; a dress
of taffetas in ()becks of black and white, (amid an
inch square. On each side of the skirt was a broad
band of green, black, and white plaid, soolloped
and fringed. The body was high, buttoned and or
namented to match the trimming on the skirt, and
finished by a - plaid sash, tied in a bow behind.
Tho bonnet was white crape, drawn op pink rib
bbns, and trimmed with a largo tuft of pink prim.
roses. A small wreath of the same flowers surround
ed the Bropress fall which hang over the bonnet.
Wo observed even hero a quilting dross embroid
ered in large dots with coral-colored wool. Round
the bottom and up the skirt, in spaces of about ten
inches, was a light pattern in terel braid. The
hody was high, without basques, and buttoned with
soral buttons. The sleeve was in large flat plaits
from the armhole, held by buttons just above the
elbow, whence it hung in a pagoda. With this was
worn a walloped muslin mantle, and a round drab
straw hat, trimmed with a feather and ribbon of
the same color, and deep black lace round the
We must describe one more, which, although
rather original, had a good effect. The dross was
white muslin, over which was a white China crape
shawl. The lower point was trimmed with a broad
black lace, and the nppor one was surrounded by
a deep white fringe, mixed with black chenille.
The bonnet was white tulle, trimmed with bleak
lace and velvet.
The bodies of dresses are now generally worn
high ; but low bodies are also seen, and, of course,
in full dress are always adopted.
Bretalles are still worn with them. Rather a
new style of this ornament has lately appeared.
It is made of broad velvet, arranged almostsquare
from the shoulders, and fastened to a band at the
waist. Three bands of the same velvet, or seven
very narrow, aro placed across the front and bank;
a buckle is placed at the waist, both before and
behind, from which two ends of velvet hang on
the skirt. This has a very pretty attest, and may
be worn with several dresses withont any other
Double skirts, as well as flounces, still continue
to be mush worn. The most favorite trimming
for the double skid le a handsome fringe placed
on the edge of the topper skirt only. Indeed,
fringe will be very much adopted this winter as a
trimming,not only for dresses, but also for man
tles and the varieties of basquines and paiotots
now worn.
An elegant fringe we have notioed wee formed
by a beading of Venetian guipure, and in the
fringe were tinsad balls and long beads of stbel.
Another bad i narroxr pion heading, striped
with velvet, the fringe bong beplacod by light
hanging fuchsias, composed of Mali satin. The
head of flower was formed of long Steel beads,

wreath formed the bartho, entirely covering the
sleeves. The coiffure was composed (besides the
roses and leaves) of lilies of the valley and corn

-Another trimming, intended for a lemon-colored
taffetas, was composed of boquets of mulberries,
mixed with fuchsias, small sprays ofjessamine, and
brown gram. These boquets wore exquisitely ele

with whighoclopeilirt Wal3 trimmed. The IMMO
boquets were plased on the sleeves, falling over
the arms. For the coiffure was tbe time qrtdment,
fastened with a bow of ribbon placed very backward
on the head.
A trimming not lees pretty was composed of wreaths
of snowberrias placed round two skirts of pink

since ho was nineteen—twenty-six years. hia dis
ease is rheumatism, and most terribly has the poor
man suffered with its torturing deforming and rava

under as to form a perfect B. The ankle joints are
also dislocated and shockingly displaced. Ibis feet
are drawn round to one side, and the toes twisted
into all conceivable shapes. In fact, the terrible
disease has 'scarcely left a limb, &joint. or a mem
ber of the body undeformed. And added to all
this, the poor man has been rendered perfectly
blind by the soma disease. He lies upon his book,
hie arms folded across his breast, and is only bare

almost constant.

unanimous opinion that the breech-loading, rifle rub
mitted by General Burnold, of Rhode Island, is Lost
suited to the military service, as a breech-loading rifle
is thought to be Almelo and strong in its parts, and
therefore lees liable to get out of order than any other.
In expressing this opinion, they do not wish to be un
derstood as disparaging the merits of the other guns,
for the, consider that some of them possese much merit
and evince much ingenuity in their conetruction. They
feel it their duty to state that they have seen nothing
In these trials to lead them to think that a breech
loading arm has yet been invented which is suited to
replace the muzzle-loading gun for foot troops; on the
contrary, they have aeon much to impreis them with an
opinion unfavorable to the nee of a breech-loading gun
for general military purposes
Although the Board was ordered to give an opinion
upon rifles alone, yet the attention of the members was
called to Colt's revolving pistol, fitted upon a movea
ble rude stock: It performed so well that they recom
mend it to the Secretary of War as a very superior arm

Untie specie payments.

and others in certain companies; which was agreed to.
Mr. E. stated that the bill was calculated to give em
ployment to a large number of men, who were willing
to labor during the winter for part •of their pay, pro
vided the balance was secured to them. The employers
could not give them absolute security, because their
property was already had up by mortgages and judg
ments which, it sued out, would strip the laborer of
the amount due him. The bill authorized the com
panies employing the men, to execute a lien upon their
wagons, teams, horses, mules, cars, carte, boats, equip.
ments, engines, tools, and machinery used in conduct
ing their business, to be held by a trustee or trustees
until such debts were fully discharged by the sale there.

The Chinese Museum now exists only in
memory. It was destroyed by the conflagration of
July, 1854, and all its traces have entirely disap-
peared. The building, as most of our readers will
remember, was erected for the accommodation of
Peale's Museum and of Mr. Nathan Dunn's
splendid collection of Chinese curiosities and illus
trations of life among the Celestials. The Peale
collection occupied the Splendid hall in the second
story, and the Chinese Museum was located in the
scarcely leas magnificent apartment on the first
floor, Mr. Dunn collection attracted crowds of
visitors for a time; but as the novelty wore off,
lublic patronage followed its example, and the col
ection, to save its proprietor from constant loss,
was taken to England, and there sold finally.
Peale's Museum made a desperate struggle for ex
istence in the new building, bat after a series of
financial troubles, in which the sheriff figured con
spicuously, the whole concern was brought to the
hammer, and the collection of the wonders of nature
and of art, of which Philadelphia was once so
proud, was scattered far and wide.
The buildings shared the fate of its contents,
and it was finally sold to Mr. 1. B. Parker. After
the collections for which the building had been
erected were scattered, the concern had a very
diversified existence. Shilling aonearts, monster
halls, and ethiopian serenaders bad their era in
the building, and they were followed by the exhi
bitten of the Franklin Institute, horticultural
shows, and mass meetings. The immense size of
the building fitted it specially for many pur
poses which required much apace, and at the time
of its destruction it was considered absolutely in
dispensable to the city.
We remember well the night when it was wrapped
in flames, and the expressions of regret that came
from thousands who were intently viewing the pro
gress of the devouring element. With many the
impressions of that terrible night are ineffaceable.
After the_present generation, the history of the
Chinese Museum, end the ill-fated National
Theatre, which adjoined it on the north, will only
be preserved in our local records. We aineerely
irust that he who philosophises over the site fifty
tears hence will have a cheering career of pros-
Frity to record of the enterprise which is now in

body—a very celebrated and übiquitous character
b ie the way—has become smitten with the charms
o • the many fair ones who weekly congregate at
the church in Arch street, of which the Rev.
Charles Wadsworth is pastor. With a view of in
dulging a missitievous propensity, or the further

The mysterious billet deux has created quite a
sensation among the clerks of that department, as
it is no doubt destined to exercise among the fair

far, is enveloped in mystery and gloom, and we
patiently await an explanation.

Some still go back to the suspension of 1837, and
say that the cases are, at bottom. analogous, and
that what then was unavoidable is necessary now.
We have remarked at same length on the facts
that prove them not to be. Take an illustration
that comes home to oar present condition as to
specie—one drawn from the state of the ex
changes. Nearly a fortnight ago we remarked
that in place of the millions of foreign indebted
ness, and of the ruinous drain of specie out of the
country. of 1837, the rate is such of 1857 that it •
must bring specie from abroad. Look - at ex-
ohange to-day !Itis at such a rate as to allow a
margin of profit to import specie from Europe
of between net and nine per cent ; the trade is
each that specie must come; and it is safe to pre--
diet that heavy imports can begin within thirty
days, while our own product is pouring in constant
ly from California. Need we point to the difference
between such a state of things and the state that.
existed at the date of the 1637 suspension? Then
oar exchanges were against us as to specie, and
It was flowing out of the banks and out of the
But look at this alleged analogy in a point of
view in which we have not considered it. The
suspension Of 1837 took place at a time when our
crops were all in—had been all used up. Indeed,
all through the South the planters had even
pledged the crops not yet sown—those of 1838—(or
mean* to meet their engagemente. Let 03 recall a
fact or two. Here is a citation from a New Cr
eams paper of 1837—just before the suspension :
"New Orleans, April 5, 1837. Three 'hundred
bales of good quality cotton were bought for re
mittance to Liverpool, on Tuesday. for Bevan cents_
To-day we hear Of several lots being offered at aiz
cents. In Hinds county, Mississippi, more than.
a thousand suits hare been brought." To sheer
the state of the South, we take the following'
from the Mississippian, printed at Jackson, the
seat of Government: "Nearly three millions are
to be recovered in the three counties of Hinds,
Madison, and Yazoo, and proportionally in other
counties of the State, by the approaching terms of
their respective courts." And the West was as
bad off as the South. In fact, crops there had fail
ed, and up to the very day of the 1837 suspension
we were increasing out indebtedness to Europe by
importing wheat. A table of these importations is
before us, down to April 19, a few days before the
general suspension. This is no less curious than it
IS valuable:

Such was the condition of the country. as to.
crops and specie balances, in 1837. Then, by the.
natural course of trade specie was going abroad;
going abroad, too, to settle balances occasioned by
commercial transactions—to pay for the flood of
wheat that was pouring in upon us_ The suspen
ion took place in May.
Now look at the state of things to-day herr ow

These crops are enormous; they will soon be avail

New York Hotels and BeardimpHouses.
A . grumbling correspondent of the Boston Tran

with few exceptions they are headquarters of slut

years ago. One consequence of this state of things
to that hundreds annually migrate to the suburban
country, or hs the old citiesof Germany and Italy,
while another class are pushed, as it were, into the
far West.
"There is actually no provision in oar large
cities, and especially here, for that large and most
desirable species who hare moderate means and
conservative habits, mental resources and culti

The American Corvette Plymouth at South
[From the London Nees .1
There is now lying at Southampton a linited
States corvette, called the Plymouth She iv COM'
Mandell by Captain Dalgren, the inventor of tho se
enormous gnus with which the American men-of
war are now armed, and which, in the opinion
of some; will revolutionize naval warfare, as
ships will be destroyed before they can come near
each other. A pivot gun which is on board the
Plymouth has a 11-inch bore. There are in all
Ave large guns on board, and the object of the'
Plymouth's emits is to enable Captain Dalgren to
make some experiments in sea-firing. Although
the machinery for working these guns is very per
fect and beautiful, yet the labor of firing each
heavy ordnance is severe. There are some pretty
boat howitzers on board the Plymouth, which are
remarkable for the rapidity with which they can
be fired, and the facility with which they can be
used on boats, or mounted on carriages on shore_
The boarding implements and small arms, such as
tomahawks, swords., pistols that can be converted
into carbines, short carbines that are loaded at the
breech, and have the properties of the Minis rifle,
are well worth inspection, all having some new
and useful property. One of the curious proper
ties of the Dalgren heavy gun is the singularly
mellow sound that accompanies its discharge.
The volume of sound which it causes is enormous,
but the sound is not of that ringing and ear-split
ting quality which usually accompanies hear"
ordnance. The Plymouth is pierced for 22 guns.
Her full complement of men is 220. Her crew,
however, at present amounts to only 110 men.
She is a wooden ship of enormous strength, her
timbers being far heavier than those of Englials.
The courts in the interior of New York
State are very severe on all who violate the license
law At a session of the Circuit Court, at the
court-house in Watertown, last week, J edge Allen
presiding, there were three trials for violation of
the license law—the selling beer at two saloons and
a tavern—at neither of which plaits they were
licensed to do so. The Judge held beer to be
among the "intoxicating drinks" proscribed by
the law. George Ludlow was mulcted in the tam
of four hundred dollars Franklin P. Carter' wo
hundred dollars, and S. P. Hutfstater one hundred
dollars—at the rate of fifty dollars for each °tenet
proved against them.
