To-dSiltis ,opened bright Mut cold as

celdi of `%is past week drives the
lzrakiutpee !sta . .our housea_ and the la

full of lifightlivittired damsels,. and re

the On of Street beggars none such

so far successful that teeth and hair s can
alwas be kept in a state of prestive vigor.
All this is not—done without money,'
however, and/the amount that it takes to
produce a decent toilet now a-days is
enough to make the uniniatiated open
their eyes. Everybody dresses, and how
some people dress who have apparcntiy
little to dress on i one of the unfathom
ed mysteries of the nineteenth- century.
We can only regard this mania for dress
on the part of the women of Oe present ,
day as one of those mysterinip manifer
tations of retributive justice against' the
"tyrant man," that is a natural conse
quence of the mental subordination in
which the Ireaker vessel has for centu
ries been k'ept. It is something upon
the principle of aontinental Govern
ments, who amine the populace with mu
sic and dancing om Sundays, to keep them
from reflection. Let either once think
about it and they would son upset ty
ranny in either case. However, as ty
rant and victim both seem to admire the
full dress system, it becomes the journal
ist to treat the subject with respect,
wherefore your corresponent proposes to
give you a few ideas cni the fashions in
this epistle, but be it/understood that
while she assists in forging chains 'of
ribbons, silks, flowers, velvets, feathers
&c , she does it with the firm conviction
that these same chains, if used at 'all, will
be ultimately applied to the subjiga
tion of the aforesaid tyrant man himself.
The classic and historical styles of cos
tumes again begin to prevail. Flat trim.
mings are adopted for the first, and the
opposite for the other, and are likely to
remain fashionable for a season at least.
Ladles wear no hoops, and no pannier ex
cept such as is formed by tying back the
skirt drapery with tapes set on beneath,
and 'leaving the sides of the figure as
narrow as possible. A,design to display
a classic outline has developed into deter
mination with the fashionable woman
who has a fine figure, or who knows how
to appear to possess this highly valued
feminine attraction. The woman who
can't appear to be well shaped, should be
ware of the "classic." The one who can,
may betake herself to it with a certainty
of securing a shape of admiration.
One of the most useful inventions of
of the age ib the Butterick paper pattern
device. Here at Hamlin's, 1113 Chestnut
street, one can get an accurate cut pat
tern of any garment "they want for man,
woman or child, at most moderate prices.
By mentioning the age, printed direc
tions for amount and quality of material
and trimming, with precise directions for
with real time
Um' *Wally rtt
every pert of
Cutting out the garment, willbe sent to
any address. These patterns range from
ten cents to seventy five in price, and en
ables any WIP who understands sewing to
do their own dressmaking. I saw at
Madame. Binders, 11th and Che:stni*StS
a few days since, a beautiful dress of 'ma
min colored silk just finished. The skirt
was bordered . with 'three deep folds,
whose effect was stylish. not too ("Lib'
orate. It hung handsomely, beteg neith
er too long for comfort, nor too abort for '
grace. The over-skirt was of cassimere'
trimmed, with ostrich - . feathers and Ink
lace. It had an apron front and and a
lull draped back, the tatter being orna
mented by a wide silk sash which, passing
under the drapery, tied at one side in an
effective and jaunty sort of way. The
waiit - was of cassimere cut plain „and
high, and fitted the figure perfectly by' its
carefully shaped darts. A belt, conipos
ed of silk folds, fastened with is band
au= buckle, and silk cuffs were arrang
ed under buttons on the coat sleeves. A
plaited and pressed flounce of caw:mere
fell below the cuff. Theae three patterns.
Nos. 5484, 2728. and 2213. may fill be had
at. Hamlin's, 1112.Cbestnut street, fur sev
enty' cents, sad an ingenious lady may,
with their aid, readily construct an ele
gant and similar garment. Cassimeres
ar‘after ail the . most useful material for
this season of the year, cud when trim
med with yak or guipure . lace are truly
elegant. . _
But enough of the fashions for the pres
ent. Today the Constitutional Conven
tion rvassembled, and if they only sea
one-haitthat is expected of them,
this honorable body will deserve immor
tality. Once more Chief Clerk; Mr. D.
L. Itztbrie, is in his place, looking greatly ,
benefit Od by his taste of native air
Messii. Harlan and Rogers are ready for
work while in the yanscribing room
Hon. John L. Linton and Mr. Parker may
- be said to have shed their pen feathers.
Henry C. Carey, eq., announced with
touching and appropriate remarks the de
cease of Wine M. Meredith. He was list
ened to with emotion by the members, all
of whom Seemed to realize the fact for
the flr4 liras that that' a great Constitu
tional lawyer had peased away. It is cu
.rioun:Wohsexse he .-effect : pioduced-br
deep feeling on men of different temper
menu!. A causual observer might have
been struck with this peculiarity this
morning. A young Democratic member
was so overcome that he called several of
his friends together, and told them that
a certain lady had invited him to take tea
at her house, from which he argaed a vast
c6rease' in his personal attractions.
Another member, not totBlly disctin•
siected- with the Ist school district 4 ,, of
Pennsylvania, and yaw has been must
unreasonably breveted with the titles of
(). :id Esq., (since he never was any
thing but a counter hopper,) leaned back
on the hind legs i of his chair, and scrap
ing off some spots on the knee of his pan
taloons with his half opened pen knife,
ventilated his Ilief to the member in his
The member who is always so
overcome by his legislative exertions that
he is obligd to repose at full length on
one of the sofas, near the doors, on this
occasion varied the programme by put

A new play was produced last night at
Col Wood's museum. It is a German so•
ciety play, and turns upon a school girl's
love affair with a teacher. Everything
that fine scenery, beautiful dressing and
good acting can do has been done for it,
but the tone of feeling is so at variance
with our national prejudices that ''The
Veruns" can never be a favorite. It is due
to Col. Wood to say that he is always on
the alert to encourage literary taste and
talent. More new plays are brought out
in the lecture room of his museum than
is all the other theatres in Philadelphia
put together. There is also on exhibi
tion at the museum a magnificent dia
mond uncut, and for which Tiffany, of
New York, has offered a hundred thous
and dollars. It is locked inside of two
cases, and a man stands gu!rd over it
night and day. Mr. Fox, of the Ameri
can Theatre, has returned from Europe,
having brought with him a corps of su
perior artists. But the wonder of this
establishment is "Lo Lo," a young girl,
who jumps from the third ties-of the the

twenty feet by one leg to a trapeze. This

Ooe of your anxious readers asks,
"Can you make farming pay when you
get such poor prices for your produce."
Farming pays here, and pays largely. The
average yieli of wheat is 25 bushels to
the acre. Wheat has never sold for less
than $1.50 per bushel as yet in this coun
ty. Corn this year will be worth from
fifteen to twenty cents per bushel, but by
feeding it to stock a farmer can realize
from 40 to 60 cents per bushel for every
bushel. Broom corn, castor beans, pats
and barley, all make profitable crops. Po
tatoes yield enormously, and must also
be fed to:pay. Sweet potatoes yield be
t. and all credence. J. K. Finch has rais
ed over 250 bushels to the acre. Stock
raising, however, is the fastest way to
get rich. The altitude and dryness of the
atmosphere,(Mix short winters :and ex
emption from cold rains, and the
boundless range together with the con
vences of railroads for marketing, makes
this section of the most desrable in the
world. Year after year cattle have been
kept here without .either shelter or food
other than nature provided them. Then
think how well they can be kept where
corn can be obtained for fifteen cents a
bushel, and hay costs less than three dol
lars per ton. If cattle raising pays where
land costs fifty dollars an acre, corn fifty
cents per bushel, and hay from eight to
1 twelve dollars per ton, it will assuredly
pay here. Scene.
