Tragedy at Quebec.
March 3•—An officer of the
Fifty-third Regiment was shot while
skating here to-night.- Just at dusk,
when a number of our lady "and gentle
men citizens were enjoying themselves in
the art of skating in the fashionable skat
ing rink on Lewis street, a most horrible
tragedy was committed in their presence
-that of the shooting of one of Her Maj
esty'a officers of the Fifty-third Regiment,
named Whittaker, by . the son of a very
respectable and highly esteemed citizen,
Mr. H. J. Chaloner.
Whittaker, in company with Dr. Hed- '
ley, of the same regiment, left the dress
ing room, with their skates on, to skate
on • the rink. The distance is about three
yards. As soon as Whittaker, who first
reached the edge of the rink, was met 'by
Chaloner, a young man, the latter drew a
revolver from his pocket in a cool and
, determined manner and shot Whittaker
twice in the head. The first ball went
clear past the bridge of hip nose, but the
second entered his skull, causing Whitta
ker to give way under his feet and fall
down. , All was the work of an instant.
The ladies and gentlemen screamed amid
the horrible scene. , , •
Whittaker was taken into the adjoining
room, and Dr. Marsden called in, who
poronounced the wound mortal. No hope
is entertained of his recovery. Judge
Doucet has tried to take his declaration,
but he is unconscious. Chaloner has given
himself up to the authorities.
' . Whittaker is accused of having seduced
the daughter of a highly respectable citi
zen, which has, we believe, been the
cause of thisraseality. He is also accused
of having brought trouble, atiliction'and
sorrow to the door of another respectable
family in London, Ontario, by the same
means. The afflicted father in this case
came to Quebec but a few weeks ago, to
'release his daughter from a life of infamy.
Whittaker was to have been arrested by
the police authorities to-day for his scan
' dalous conduct; but through some •delay
the warrant was held over by order of
the Court till tomorrow.
It is notedeciared afact that the •
,ner's sister made a deposition before the
Judge of Sessions, the day previous to the
;occurrence, charging Whittaker with hal , -
ing taken improper liberties. with her per
son while she was in a state of partial in
sensibility from chloroform, administered
by Whittaker on a pocket-handkerchief.
In August last, it Is rumored that' Whit
taker promised marriage; and made an
appointment with the young lady to meet
at a clergyman's house. The marriage
did not take place thenewing to the ab
sence of. Father Presence. 'Whittaker
told his brother officers that he Intended.
t o marry the girl; but they advised him
not to do so. The whole regiment is de
flounced here for their immorality. The
citizens generally- are indignant against
the Fifty : third, and hope that.orders :will
soon.arrlve ordering their departure. from

PITTSBITRGEI Cr*ZEITE: WEDNESDAY, MARCH 10, 1869:
THE MACH NODES.
With the advent} of March the ever-re
curring question 'arises, What is to be
worn ?;, What will be the spring fashions?
Have hoops, gone out entirely ? mill
short . dresses be worn on the street ?! Are
bonnets to be enlarged ? and from a
thousand different voices from all ilarts
of the country comes the inquirt, How.
can wc, dress fashionably but not expen
sively ? Commencing at the beginning
`we beg to assuie our readers tiled. as
usual, pretty, nifich everything will be
worn; that spring fashions are under the
snow as yet, in t4is latitude, but that we
shall endeavor to exhume them. that
hoops (very swan) will. be more likely to
come in than to go out with warm weath
er; that short dresses are permanent; that
small bonnets will be worn at least an
other season; and that there nevef was a
time - when - fashion was more sensible or
economical than now, provided people
are willing to be sensible and economical.
Snits and costumes are the leading fea
tures of the new spring, styles, and are;
many of them, pretty in design as well
as handsome in material. Of all that we
have seen in preparation, the prettiest
and most 'serviceable are made in change
able or fine then silk. trimmed with rich
fringe orwith ruffles, or a double-ruch
ing of the, same. The skirts of most of
them are of moderate walking_ length,
the upper skirt is retained and the Cos
tume completed by a tight-fitting basque,
or by one of the many pretty and stylish
varieties of, capes which will be worn
largely as the spring advances. When
the basque is retained it is generally ruf
fled, or. trimmed J . with fringe to simulate
a square or Pointed pelerine; sometimes a
pointed cape is attached open upon the
back as well as upon the front, and edged
all around with. drop trimming or fringe.
Paniers proper are but little worn, but
the large sash bows and ends are as im
portant ae ever, and the frasque, or.upper
skirt is very often arranged in a pouf at
the back, which adds to the prominence
give]; fo the fullness of, the skirt and the
smalrbustle now almost universally worn
with . or attached to the hoops. And en
pnalant it may be remarked that the ar
rangement of the skirts, long and short,
remains the same; the fullness is gathered
at the back, the sides laid in large pleats,
the front left entirely plain unless upper
skirts form a tunic divided into puffings
in front as well as at the back. There is
a• tendency,! to get rid entirely
of the front'of the upper skirt, and drape
it with trimming from the sides, dispos
ing it full at the back, but at present, it is
more a question of taste than a fashion.
Walking skirts are nearly all of them
trimmed with ruffles or with ruffles headed
with one or more puffings; the single nar
rowllounce (about six inches) is the most
popular in the thicker - woolen materials
worn in early spring, but as the warm
weather advances, and thinner fabrics are
required, the size and number will prob.
ably be limited only by - taste and means.
SLEEVES AND TIDNOS
In sleeves there is a great variety, the
styles being adapted by, modistes of taste
and judgement to the materials and re
fiuirement • •of the dress. The sleeves
shaped to the arm, but mere closely f to
the cut to the wrist, is still employed ,for
walking dresses. For the house they are
sometimes made with a single puff at the
topor.lightly puffed all the way down
from the top to bottom. They are also
worn half long, and pinched with "lace
or ruffles below the elbow. This is a
good style- for the warm latitudes, the
upper part being straight, puffed or filled
in lengthwise, according to taste. Bodies
cut or - opened to a point in front, and
worn sullicientfy off from the throat to
display a black velvet and pendant locket,
will be very fashionable the ,coming sea-,
son, and we recommend it as a good style
for house and summer morning dresses.
Single capes, worn with suits, are looped
high upon.the shoulders instead of at the
back, as last season. Round bows with
ends are more fashiofiable than rosettes.
Square bodies and trimmed bodies seem
as if they, /had obtained a perpetual lease,
and the reason undoubtedly because
they are becoming to our fiat-chested,
small.armed women. More out-door ex
ercise, more - good broiled (not fried)
beefsteak, less pastry, and hread-knead
ing instead of harp and guitar twanging,
would soon remedy these' physical diffi
culties in the otherwise handsomest race
of womenln the world. - Elegant dinner
dresses of rich silk. or satin, are still cut
out square, but they are not unfrequently
cut out both front and back, forming a
complete .ponapadaur, and the effect;
when filled in with rich lace, is very dis
lingue. The square may be trimmed
with lace, ruffles, or fringe, according .to
'the material of the dress, but. if of satin
or very rich silk, the trimming should be
point or point applique lace.
Pique morning dresses will be very
generally made with a basque or with a
small pointed pelerine cape. Drop trim
ming headed with braiding or embroidery
is most in vogue for these. We beg to
suggest, however, that colored braiding
or colored embroidery is a great mistake
uponmaite pique. White is • less strik
ing, but it Is better taste, washes more
perfectly. and if it is neatly done .ldoks
well and lasts as long us, the fabrics; and
that is saying a good deal, for there is no
wear out to pique;
The distinction bbtween hats and bon
nets will be very small this season; the
one is nearly merged in the other. The
size is not in the least enlarged, but the
brim is universally thrown up,. especially
ftom the left side; where an aigrette,;or
rose with leaves, constitutes the appear
ance of height and ap air of dis
,tinction. Narrow strings are absolutely
required to tie their little hats under the
chignon, and others are now used upon
all imported bonnets to tie under the chin.
arms AND 'COMPLEXION.
More hair is worn than ever. The bon
nets therefore cannot be enlarged. The
chlgrion is not only composed of large
puffs, but'a Proihsion of curls Spring out
from the centre and fall at the back of it,
not below it.. It is also worn very high
upon the head and crowned by a massive
braid which forces the crimping and curli
down upon the forehead, or leaves them
only the smallest amount of space on
which to display themselves.
