UAUTFOUD. Special Dispatch !o The Tribune. HiETFonD, Conn., May 27.—The critical porting papers " l,kh liave been P idcin S / the White-Stocking nine because it had'no Luge pitchers will please notice the following re bv which the hard hitters of the East made exactly one run off McVey, the Only Original Centennial Phenomenon. The fact ♦it the Hartfords had all along been hatting Xw though employing a thrower in tic person of Bond, led Mr, Spalding to circ McVey a clnpice to-day, and the jefxdt shows the wisdom of the move. An tndieacc of about 2,500 witnessed the game, pd were more than usually impartial in their socialise. Both sides were blanked in the first li e innings, and then Peters, getting first on a yean hit, stole second, went to third ou Glenn’s made a run off Barnes’ fine low drive, ilioaraced by this, McVey opeued the third rJiijfr "hr a hit through Carey, ami rent to se'cond on Addy’s safe hit. Both, were idvanced a peg on a passed ball, and. then White came valiantly to the front with * a long liner* to right field, on which both men scored. In the fifth inning the Whites took inothcr run on successive hits by Gleuu, Barnes, and Anson. In the seventh In nhi" Glenn again led off with a fine hit, unf Barnes and nines followed with dean drives, * on which Glenn scored. iTison came to bat with Barnes on third, and lift tlosrflv to Remseu to save the run. Jt did it, ndferues scored. After McVey had been re iiffd, Spaldiwr hit hard to Carey, and, the ball Kins promptly muffed, Hines got home with tie {had run of the inning. Peters took the last White-Stocking run in the eighth jnm’nf. when ne |madc a snort bit which let him to first, whence be at once stole second, going to third on Clean’s out, and home ou a passed hall. The onlr Hartford run was made iu the third Inniug br ’successive liits by Harbidgc, Burdock, and Kfmsen, the first-named scoring ou Higham’s JjHjflr, well taken by Hines. After the fifth Inning' the home club were useless at the bat, and made only one clean hit in the last four limingsr Their fielding was rather shiftless as the score shows. The Chica ros played their Usual close unyielding game in the field, and supported McVey finely, while at the hat they were luckr and'deserving of it. Their strong point was, however, their base run ning, and that was what won the game for them as "much even as their batting. It was the sharpest display of that part of the game ever seen in Hartford. The notable plays were made bv Anson, "White, and Hines, the latter taking a’high ball after a long ran, that secured him three rounds of applause. White’s catch ing was the best, because the roost‘difficult, be has shown this year. Following is TUB score; Chicago. Barnes, 2 b.. Iliues, c. f... Anson, 3b... McVey, p... Sodding,!. t.

The play of last week has strengthened the Chicago Club for first place, with the Hartfords a good second. The Boston and St. Louis Clubs are even as to games won and lost, and the struggle will be between those clubs for third place. The Reds, of Porkopolis, are at the eud of the race so far. the following is the score to date: Chicago..... Hartford , St. Louis Host© LonlfTr'* Alhle Mmr .... ; Chul at Games lost.. The drawing for positions among the Eastern clubs for their first Western trip has taken place, and they will open June 20, as follows: Mutual iu Chicago, Athletic iu St. Louis, Hart ford iu Louisville, and Boston in Cincinnati. The second week will bring the Boston to Chicago, Mutual to St. Louis, Athletic to Louisville, and Hartford to Cincinnati. The third week’s game will be Hartford at Chi cago, Boston at Si. Louis, Mutual at Louisville, aud Athletic at Cincinnati. The last week of the trip will be Athletic at Chicago, Hartford at St. Louis, Boston at Louisville, aud Mutual at Cincinnati. During each of these weeks games will be played Tuesday, Thursday, aud Saturday, as on the present Eastern trip. The representatives of the bulls and bears on ’Change, will play a match game of base ball on the White Stocking grounds Tuesday, May 30* Game called at 3:30 p. m. Says an exchange; “The most wonderful man in the base-ball world is Addy; no matter where the ball is thrown on the west side of second base he is after it.” We fully believe that Boston has secured a Chicago base-hall reporter for this season, and his handiwork may be seen almost any day in the columns of the Herald. When Jim O'Kourke’s honesty comes to bo impeached, what may we expect next i That I farrv Wright, perhaps, had a hand in losing to the Hartfords the other day, when he let Borden pitch. —■Xew Tori: Sportsman. Where the Chicagos excelled was in their al most perfect fielding and in magnificent base running, in which respect thev resemble the old Boston team. And tuis one thing—daring base running—is what won the championship' for the Bostons, and is what will win for Chicago, pro vided the Chicagos win it at all, which is by no means a certainty. What the Hartfords most need at present, is good coaching around the bases, and If they would copy after the Ohi cagos imtbis respect they would do well.—Hart ford Tost, Hay _-L Muruan has proved a jewel for the Bostons, and it is doubtful if the Association would now exchange him foreither of the four who went West. So says the Boston Herald. Murnau is no doubt a valuable and efficient plover, but when it is stated that he would be preferred to anv one of the four who joined the Chicagos we are inclined to doubt the statement, and think that jealousy gave rise to the remark. “Beware of jealousy, mv lord.” When Spalding, White, Barnes, andATcVcv come to read the paragraph quoted from the Boston paper, they will each and all make a vow that if they let the Bostons make amu when first they meet they’ll be d— —d (darned, of course). The Hartford Daily Times comments as fol lows on the Tuesday game between the Wliitcs and Hartfords: “The visitors immediately be fan practice, and made some brilliant exhi itions of throwing and catching, especially around the bases. They carry that same digni fied, pompous, conceited air which characterized the Boston Beds last season, but it may be per fectly legitimate if they can back it up. Their svstem ol training has been perfect,and not a man of them gives any indication of fear or lack of confidence. They go in to take everything with in their reach, and when the sport is over they inventory to see how much of what they want ed they secured. Not a single point do they lose advantage of, and, while their field talking may be justly considered ungeutlenmnly and improper, there is just the point in which they will help defeat their adversaries throughout the season.” ij | 0! 5{ 0 01 1 1 1! o. u! 211 5; Ij 41 ol 4| Ij 4 Of 4i 2i o! 2j 12 27 41 -S 1 I 51 i 0! 0 Ol 0 ol 0 1! 1 I 0:15 ! 1 2 1 8 27, 6 7 0 3 0 0 0-8 o—l o—3 o—l TUB NEW STAR IS THE BILLIARD WORLD. William Sexton—who lias come into celebrity since he went to Paris some months ago to compete with the great Vignaux—was bom in Burlington, Vt., in 1554, and played his first game in ISC7, and shortly alter that became a room-keeper, locating in various cities. In 1575 he played his first match with Charles Efllcr, of Albany, N. Y., including the 3-hall and 4-hall game, winning both. The latter consisted of 1,500 points, and Sexton made runs ot 141, 165, 2X4, 291, and 462, making the astonishing 4-ball average of 107 2-14', his opponent securing alto gether but 455 points. After several minor matches, ho entered thetournment at Tammany Hall during November of last year, and at the 3-ball game defeated Slossou by 300 to 234, Daly by 300 to 237, and Kudolphe by 300 to 234, being beaten himself by both the Dions and Gamier. Subsequently Vignaux won the challenge cup and carried it with him to Paris, and it was decided that an Amer ican plavcr should be selected to go over and win it back, it possible. Two good players were named, Slossun and Sexton, and the latter was the choice. He made the voyage, and on March 31 last he crossed cues with the great French man at the Grand Hotel at Paris. Vignaux won bv GOO to 450, his highest ran having been 156, and his average 19 li-31, while Sexton made a ran of 129 and averaged 1420-31. Since Ins return Sexton has steadily improved, and his run the other night at Philadelphia and his re markable average attest bis wouderful.capacity as a player, lie is quite a young man, the voungest, hi fact, among them ail, and his voy age abroad to bring home with )dm the emblem ot the championship is evidence of his pluck. Ho is ot a slim build, with a pale complexion, and his face will never tell of victory or defeat. The style of his game is the very opposite of his opponent’s. His forte is in “nursing” the balls, which he docs with wonderful delicacy and care. Like Vignaux, he is strong at the masse shot, hut relies more on the cushions to bring the halls into place. sexton’s big run. Dispatch to the Xew York Sun. Philadelphia, May 25.—The game this even ing was between Cyrillc Dion and Sexton. It started slowly and continued unexciting throughout four innings, in which Dion made 116 and Sexton only 13. Then the great playing began, Sexton, in his fifth, had the balls in a good position, but carelessly scattered them. He drew them together at the lower cushion by several masterly draw and fine masse shots, and then kept them together in a wav that soon made the spectators enthusiastic. The two bails lav against the cushion, and for shot after shot upon them he scarcely jogged them from their places. Fifty points were made before they were perceptibly stirred. Even then they did not quit the cushion, but only moved along it one way and the other, while the score was deftly, steadily There was loud cheering and great excitement better.

THE CHICAGO FOOTBALL CLUB, Yesterday afternoon a small but very select attendance witnessed the first day’s athletic sports held under the auspices of the Chicago Football Club, at the base-ball grounds. The number of ladies who graced the grand stand was particularly noticeable, as they fairly out numbered their male attendants. So pleased were all present with the afternoon’s enter tainment, that the Club iuay confident ly look for a largo attendance at their next meeting. The programme included walking, running, jumping, hammer throwing, and weight-putting, and it was got through with commendable punctuality, begin ning at 3 o’clock and terminating promptly at 5:40 p. m.,—the time set down on the card. A 3-mile walk was the first event, and for this Messrs. Charles Downs and F. Billings started. Billings stuck manfully to his work for half the distance, when he'had to give up, and Downs came home by himself in the good time of 27:45. The trial heats of the 100 vards followed, and they were won bv C. J. Williams, A. W. Sullivan, and W. B. Curtis, and those three later on competed in the final heat, corning In in the inverse order, Curtis beating Sullivan by a yard and a half, with Williams 3 yards behind. Time, II seconds. The high jump was also won by Curtis, who cleared 4 feet i 0 inches, G. Valentine second at 4 feet S inches. A third win was recorded for Curtis in the hammer-throwing, with a record of 74 feet C Indies, his nearest opponent being C. C. Hilton, at 60 feet 0 inches. Seven started for the quarter-mile run, and as they streamed round the course in their many colored costumes the scene was a remark ably pretty one. C, J. Williams at once took the'lead, and, although Cleveland and Sullivan made a desperate effort to catch him in the straight run in, he was never caught, ami won a food race by 5 yards, Cleveland beatingSallivan v half that distance for second place. Time, 55 seconds. A race for strangers for a gold medal presented by the Club was the next event. The distance was 220 vards, and nine started, the winner being (2. J. Williams, who beat E. De Wolf by 2 yards, after an exciting straggle, V. J. 'Valentine a good third. The*running wide jump fell to IV. B. Curtis with a leap of IS feet, W. Bonier second at 17 feet. Putting the shot was won by A. W. Sullivan with the excellent heave of 31 feet 10 inches with 10-pound shot, C. C. Hilton second, 2$ feet. The 120 hurdle race is a favor ite feature of an athletic programme, combining as it does both Jumping and running, the men having to clear ten hurdles of 3 feet G inches high. The first heat was an excellent race be tween Curtis and A. W. Sullivan,ami although the later stumbled half way, he recovered himself, and, catching Curtis at 'the second last hurdle, beat him liomc by 3 yards. Time, 20 1-5. The second heat was au easy win by W. Borner, C. Billings not having pace enough for a short race. The final heat'Between the two winners was a close one for half way, and thch Sullivan came awav and won easily by 5 yards,- The mile run brought out five starters; of these Bill ings gave out after going a quarter, C. Downs and Hornsby gave out on the third quarter, and C. J. Williams and Ralph Cleveland ran it out, Williams leading all the way, and, although his opponent made a fine* effort to catch him a hundred yards from home, he was unable to do so. Williams winning by 5 yards. Time, 5:14%. A consolation race for beaten men brought out L. li. Williams, C. Billiugs, aud A. 11. Hornsby. Williams led for a hundred aud fifty yards and then began to tire, Billifigs catching him and beating him home by 4 yards. Hornsby caught Williams in the last stride and made a dcadlicat for second place. Time, seconds. J * : 10 1 12! THE TIJRF, CINCINNATI.

SandforcPs Bay Eagle has been scratched, consequently there will be no representative of America in the contest. The French horse Braconnier, en gaged in and backed for the French Derby (valuable stake) to be run to-morrow, has been scratched for that engagement, so as not to jeopardize his chances in the English Derby, for which he is backed to win by a large amount. GOLDSMITH MAID. Goldsmith Maid, tbc old empress of the trot ting turf, will trot against her own time of 2:14 at "Belmont Park, Philadelphia, on the 2d of June. The reappearance of the Maid on the turf will be hailed with satisfaction all over the continent, and we anticipate arlargc gathering to witness her latest and greatest undertaking. Budd Doble informs us that the old mare was never looking or doing better, and her work so far has been satisfactory. Col. Russell did a wise thing when he made this race for Gold smith Maid, for thousands of the visitors to the Centennial will avail themselves of this oppor tunity to see her at her best.—Mew Turk bjjorts matt, The little fellow had never before been on the car, and, of course, viewed everything and evcir bodv with a child’s astonished eyes. Finally the train moved off, and he nestled closer to his mother, and. as its speed increased, he began to show some signs of consternation. Tears stood in his eve«. and, when he saw that his weakness was obseVved, he blubbered aloud, “I ain’t afraid, but I wish I had had my photograph taken before I got on this thing.” The Loan Market Inactive—Tax- Fighters as Borrowers. * Some of tlio Principal Sales of THE LOAX MARKET. LITTLE ANIMATION. The figures below show that there has been more doing the past week, but the market is without animation. Loan ag£pts arc still in clined to adhere to a conservative policy, and evince hut little disposition to lower the rate of interest. Parties wanting renewals must have a clear title, free from tax-fighting tactics as well as more serious incumbrances, or they will not he listened to. Taxes must be paid up, aud would-be borrowers must prove that they have never had any disposition to evade their obliga tions In this respect. Such is the ultimatum of those who have money to loan. No loans have been placed the past week at a lower figure 4 thun 8 per cent. The prospects of the market arc not very promising. Some parties report the commencement of a revival of business in the country districts, aud predict a big inroad on the stocks of our jobbers within a few weeks. But, even if this prediction he verified, some time must elapse before its effects are felt in every channel of trade, aud especially iu the real estate market. The fact is, everything is at a standstill, partly caused by the confusion in our City Government, -partly by the tax-fight ing proclivities of certain property-owners, and partly by the stagnation in business which has prevailed in the country tributary to Chicago during the past winter and early spring. Until all these troubles arc cannot ex pect any Improvement in the loan market, nor any prospect of borrowers procuring money at a lower rate of interest; COMPARATIVE STATEMENT TOR THE WEEK ENDING MAY 27. ies won and .iphia up to > fef , ‘<T re 7 2 5 1870. 1875.

Probably the best that could be said about the real-estate market of last week would be to say nothing about it. The number of actual cash sales made was very small, and none of them were important. It is idle to repeat the oft-given explanations of this state of affairs. At a time when real estate can bo bought to more advantage than is likely to be the case again for twenty or thirty years, capital holds off. There are few men who have the nerve to operate against the crowd, but those who do so in real estate In Chicago at the present time, if they bay judl ciouslv, cannot fail to make money. If the language used in last Sunday’s Trib une with regard to the failure of the negotia tion for the sale of the Dore Clock conveyed to any of our readers the idea that there was an imperfection in the title to the Riverside prop erty involved in the trade, it should be correct ed. The question of the validity of that title did not enter into the matter. The sales reported during the past week were as follows; Timothy Wright sold to William 11. Perry 75x 171 feet on Van Buren street, north front, west of* Loomis street, and 50 feet on Congress street, south front, east of Laflin street, forsSo,ooo. Franklin Baker sold 50 feet on Wabash avenue, north of Eighteenth street, for $15,000. A. J. Ray sold to A. Millard an entire block on Ogden avenue, Lawndale, for $20,000; also-to same party, 100 feet on Central Park avenue, near Twcntv-accond street, with other property, for $20,000. . F. F. Mueller sold six blocks In Caldwell's Re serve for $13,825. • William C. Jacques sold 100x183 feet on the northeast corner of Adams and Wood streets for 818,000. M. C. Coveil sold to William IT. McDonald a tract in 28, 39, 12, part of the Coved farm, for $30,000; also, to Samuel Dorr, a part of same farm for $20,201. Ferdinand Haas sold to Forest Dome Cemetery Company 55 acres in 13, 30, 12, for $25,000. Charles Cleaver sold to B. XI.

The Philadelphia Ledger] speaking of the or* Igin of the mutual saving and loan associa tions, usually misnamed budding associations, eavs: The early Philadelphia societies were formed by workmen who had no knowledge of the ways ana meant* of carrying on the society, but had obtained reasonably clear ideas of the ends to be aimed at. They learned much’from their experience, and any mechanic, who now takes up the subject, can obtain from building association books and other publica lions the benefit of that experience. If he asks for more than that he is not earnest enough in the cause to make a successful association, even under the personal guidance of Philadelphia society offi cials. The latter are self-reliant, and. being so, are fitted fur co-operate work, and ambitious to se cure homes for themselves by their own exertions. If they or their fellow-members were otherwise, they would still be renting houses or rooms, and waiting for some one to come and tell them how to save money and own their own homes. SUBDIVISIONS.

People, while admiring a fine picture, or while marvclingat the price paid for a chef d ’ oeuvre, are apt (savs a Paris correspodent of Avplelons 1 Journal) to lose sight of the cost of the~produe tiou to the artist. They marvel at the §OO,OOO paid to Mcissonicr for his “ Battle of Fricdland,” and they lose sight of the ten years of toll, the money paid for costumes, for tile hire of moaels, the time spent in historical researches, etc. Then the ordinary expenses of an artist arc by no means trifling. The antique carved furniture, Venetian glass, ancient tapestry, and old cos tumes used in painting certain historical pict ures, are extremely valuable- The accessories of the studios of Vibert or Castiglione, for in stance, are worth no less than §5,000 each, at a moderate computation, and at European prices. Even the colors are, in certain instances, very costly. Then comes the question of framing. The .frame of a moderate-sized picture may cost anywhere from §4O to §2OO. Gustave Dore Is said to have paid SSOO for a frame for one of his colossal compositions. And, moreover, in these davs of keen competition, a painter, espe cially if devoted to landscape, cannot sit quietly down and evolve things out of the depths of his moral consciousness. He must travel, he must study Nature in all the varied aspects that he wishes to represent, and these journeys cost monev. As for sculptors, they aj*e still worse off as regards expense. To embody their ideal In marble costs no less then SI,BOO for each statue, —the carvers that copy the clay model in marble, and turn over the statue to the sculptor all ready to receive the finishing touches, being paid some §SOO for every one that they under take. The block of marble for a life-sized statue costs about §250, nor can the artist ever tell bow his stone is going to turn out. It may be of the finest quality, and as white as the driven snow outside : yet may contain hidden flaws and stains that will be only too apparent on the surface of his statue. Years ago I heard of a young sculptor in Rome who had expended all his time, his talent, and his means, in the production of a nude female figure, on which he roundel! all his hopes of success and of future fame. It came from the hands of the carver fair as his fancy hud pictured it, but with a broad, black vein extending from the parting of the hair to the tip of the nose. The j'oung man cast one look at the disfigured face that rep resented the ruin of his hopes, turned away, retired to an inner chamber, and there com mitted suicide. The Recruit’s Real Name. Daring the War, an officer in the Army of the Potomac was surprised (says the New York World, on receiving a draft of men to fill up the gap in the ranks, to find that one ot the names on the list was Fitz-Herbcrt de Percy. Still greater was his astonishment at the discovery that the owner of this aristocratic name was an Irishman of the Irishmen—a man whose broad accent, -as Brougham would phrase it, could only have been made with a broad ax. “If it had been Michael or Pat rick or Dennis, and Flaherty, O’Rourke, or Hooligan, now,” soliloquized the officer, “I could understand It, but—Fitz-Hcrbcrt de Per cy I Hover; it is all a horrible dream I Sav, now, mv good fellow, don’t let ns have any Joking. What is your name!" “Me naam, sor,” re plied the recruit,;steadily, “me naam is Fitz- Horborrrt de Porrrcy.” The possession of this clearly impossible title exercised a dreadful fascination on all the officers of the regiment, and numberless were the attempts made to discover what the wearer’s real name was and why he had adopted such an alias. All were baffled. Drunk or spber, to orders or en treaties, artfullv pumped oradroitly questioned, he made but one reply: “Me naam is Fitz- Horborrrt de Porrrcy.” At last Ins term of service expired and ho received his dis charge. “And now, De Percy,” said his com manding officer, “ you are out of the army, and whatever your real name may be, or your rea sons for abandoning it, can make no difference in your relations with me. What was it! Come, now.” “ Capting..” answered the man, “ I will not desave yez. Fitz-Horborrrt de Porrcywas notmeraal naam. That sor, I consalcd for family raisons.” “ I understand, I understand," said the officer eagerly, “ and your true name is r’ “Me raal naam, sor.” answered the soldier, “mo raal naam is not Fitz-Horborrrt de j Porrcy. it is Fitz Clarence de Montmorensby." A Chameleon’s Toilet. Flnridn Uttfr in Hartford (Conn.) Timet. Young Tiffanv’s chameleon shed its skin this morning. "When my attention was first called to it, I thought it was an imptfeture,—for the little reptile looked lust as if it had on a little, night gown of fine lavender-colored muslin, tied or tucked In at the neck and top of the tail. This strange garment gradually parted in openings. While this process was golngon, the chameleon, which was on the floor, and had a thread tied around it, held at one end by Willie Tiffany, would very unexpectedly .and suddenly make vigorous little rushes and darts across the floor, to’thc length of its string, and to the great dis comfiture of the ladies, who were gathered around it watching the shedding process. On such occasions the ladies would run screaming to a corner of the room, the suddenness and rapidity of the small “varmint’s” movements whenever he started seeming to deprive them of all presence of mind. The chameleon got hold of what he could of this cast-off garment and tried to swallow it. Upon, examining seg ments of the cast skin under a magnifying flass, it was seen to be fall of perfectly circular, oles, arranged in the most regular and orderly manner, anti the texture resembled that of the crown of a bonnet, though not quite so close. Some old fraud says, “ Get up .with the sun, if you won’t to be healthy and wise.” It is easy enough to follow this advice in the winter, when the sun acts sensibly and doesn’t get np until 7 o’clock; but, when he commences to get up at 4 o’clock, wc have observed that the wisest men give him about two hours’ start, and let their wives accumulate health and ■wisdom.— XiorrUtoicn Herald, A3EERICAINES ABROAD. The Beauty and the Lady of Fashion —The Strong-Minded. Fast and Wild Girls-—Dead-Beats and the Forlorn Female* Lucy Hooper in the Galaxy for June, “I am going to the reception of the Ameri can Ambassador to-morrow,” once remarked in my hearing a British M. P. “And what takes you there!” queried an in quisitive by-stander. “To study female beauty in Its highest phase,” was the highflown yet evidently sincere answer. The presiding lady at the American Embassy in London in those days was Harriet Lane, the American Minister being James Buchanan. It was impossible for American grace and beauty to have possessed in those days a fairer or more dignified representative than the beautiful Penn sylvanian. A radiant and regal blonde, fair as Venus, stately as Juno,rand coldly dazzling as Artemis herself, she was a rare union of the qualities which a representative woman of- the world, Ambassadress. Queen, or Presidents wife should possess. Something In the womanly dis nity of :hcr mien put the stranger who ap proached her at once at his ease, yet repelled every familiar or incautious advauce. I remem -1 ber seeing her at the Italian opera in London, her fair hair crowned with a wealth of white flowers, one spray of which trailed its blossoms against the snow of her uncovered and beauti ful neck; and she was thepointdc mire .of every opera-glass in the house, and unquestionably the loveliest woman present. AMERICAN BEAUTIES. And though this rare and radiant vision has long since faded from , the glowing canvas of public life, and is veiled from the view in the sanctified seclusion of domestic .happiness, American beauty still bears undisputed the palm in the thoroughfares and ball-rooms of the Old World. The fair faces-ot our young girls adorn better than the festive gather ings of royalty or nobility. Their bright young beauty attracts the involuntary glance of every passer-by on the streets or in the parks of every capital iu Europe. The pencil of the artist and the skill of the photographer find their fittest subjects in their dainty forms and charming faces. At this moment there Is to be seen in a picture-store on the Rue Xeuve des Capueincs a lovely cravon head, the reproduction iu pencil of the photograph of a daughter of a well known banker of Philadelphia. The artist could find no better subject where on to exer cise his skill than the features of this fair-faced foreigner. And every now and then some dazzling belle, some acknowledged queen of beautv, even in our land of fair women, comes abroad and drifts from city to city, leaving be hind her as she goes the renown of her charms, and drawing around her everywhere a throng of admiring gazers. Another charm which the Americaine abroad possesses, to the envy of all her European sisters who are not Parisian born, is style; that nameless attraction which is more potent than grace, and more bewitching than beauty. The English or German damsel puts on a Parisian made costume, and straightway it becomes transformed into a stiff and graceless garb. But the New York belle dons the latest creation of Worth, gives her skirts a shake, turns around three times before ber glass, and walks out of her a Parisiennc every inch of her. The mysterlsfi of underskirts, the secrets of color, the knack of carrying trains and of knotting gashes seem to come Ito her by iutuition. She falls behind the Parisicnne in one respect,—she cannot originate; but she to catches the feeling and spirit of her original that her copy equals it in all respects. These types of American womanhood, therefore, the beauty and the lady of fashion, may be set down as highly successful on this side of the Atlantic. THE STRONG-MINTED. In strong contrast to this dainty image of porccldn is that form of stiffer day, the strong minded Amcricaine. Who that has dwelt abroad knows not' this stern and aggressive style of womanbd6d, ,J in water-proof cloak and spec tadcs, middle-aged, energetic, and undaunted by fattgaffr.and obstacles 1 She has come abroad’fHftbrove her mind, and she improves it awalp&lv, totally neglecting the outer woman uffoe laborious process, She stops for three weeks in Paris, and takes French lessons dailv, with a vague idea that the mysteries of a foreign tongue are to be conquered in a scries of curhteen battles, lasting one hour each. Though floored in this first campaign, she ‘‘conies up smiling,” and is ready to renew the contest the moment she gets to Germany. The number of intellectual females abroad who. according to their own showing, “can read French,” but who can neither understand it uor speak it, baffles all belief. The stroug-miuded woman is übiquitous and indefatigable. The print of her India-rubber shoe is visible on the summit of Mont Blanc; the glint of her spec tades may be descried afar off upon the veiy pinnade of the pyramid of Cheops. She checks off the sights shehas seen in a business-like way, and evidently enters cadi one as so much to her account. 1 Venus fie Milo—so much. 1 Ascent of Mont Blanc—so much. 1 Sistinc Chapel—so much. And so on. She is the terror of onr representa tives abroad, from whom she contrives to ex tract unlimited information and assistancef and. whose protection she clamorously claims when swindled by hotel-keepers and dressmakers. She is not handsome, nor is she very bewitching, but she is thoroughly estimable, and worthy of all respect, not to Say toleration. THE PAST GIRLS, Not so, 0, my countrywomen! arc two types of you which sojourn much abroad, and of which much is heard. The fast girls of my na tive land, a set numerically small, but loudly uproarous and boldly scl£asscrting, have sent by far too many representatives to Europe. And unfortunately, by reason of the very tapa gewte nature of their peculiarities, they attract a ‘degree of attention, and arc credited with a de gree of importance which in numbers and in so cial standing they are very far from possessing. One loud-voiced, fast-mannered girl, whose penciled eye-brows, powdered and painted face, and dashing attire, and bold disregard of all the conventional rules of propriety, make her the observed of all observers, will attract offen sive attention, and call forth adverse criticism, where a thousand ell-bred young American damsels would pass by. unnoticed and unknown. And so it has cbme to puss in Europe, and in Parisian sodety especial ly, that the recognized type of young American ladyhood is a being from whom every foreign mother would shrink in dismay as a possible as sociate or example for her carefully-guarded daughters. The American girl who carries on “handkerchief flirtations” with unknown foreigners, who introduces herself to attractive strangers of the opposite se\. who drives out unchapcroncd with her foreign admirers, and who goes unchapcroncd with them to balls and theatres, is a creature who unfortunately has only too well recognized an existence. It was such girls as these that not only made the out rageous caricatures of “L’Oncle Sam ” credible, but caused them to be accepted as true pictures of our social life by intelligent Parisians. Miss Sarah Tahblebot was scarcely an exaggerated likeness of some of the female representatives of the “fast set” of our larger cities, though widely differing from the true typo of well-bred American womanhood.' FOOLISH WILD GIRLS. It Is a matter for serious regret to every thoughtful American residing abroad that so many of our young girls should be so carried away by vanity, folly, high spirits, or lore of ad miration, as to suffer themselves to indulge in actions which, however reprehensible at home, are at least understood ana pardoned there, iu consideration of their youth and foolishness. But in Europe their silly violations of propriety only expose them to interpretations of the very worst character. A Frenchman, for in stance, can never be brought to understand how a wild girl mav violate every rule of conven tional propricty'and yet remain morally pure. Light manners are in bis eyes an In fallible evidence of an improper char acter. And when a pretty young creature makes “eyes” at him or fiirts her handkerchief at him in the street, following up these demonstrations by a nod and a smile, he has no idea of the folly and love of fun which prompt such unlady-like demonstrations, but he sets tnem down at once to the very worst of mo tives. And really, in the Interest of the large majority of the young countrywomen abroad, I wish some law could he passed suppressing that übiquitous and uproarious pest, the fast girl—a class that, being numerically unimportant, con trive, like stage soldiers, .to give an idea of mul titude by much rushing to and fro and unlimited noise. Walking on the boulevards or driving on the Bois iu the loudest possible toilets, chatter ing noisily in the boxes of the Grand Opera, rc gmllessof resentful hisses; driving out with ounts amlßarons who never by any chance bring their mothers and sisters to call upon them; “larking it” at Mabille or the halt masques, such girls are creatures to be suppressed. >Vhat matters it if there be but a few of them! They are heard and seen and commented upon on every side. It is not so long ago that Figaro published an account of the doings of a party of fast New York girls, giving their names in fulL It was but yesterday that I sat at the‘ltalian opera behind two young ladies who had com® there without either escort. or chaperon. It is but the other day that an American girl went ta the Jardin Mahule with a party of gentlemen friends, waltzed there with some of her escorts! and ended by partaking'of refreshments side bf side, with toe regular habitues of the plaoe. Yet all these wild young women arc of unblesK ished moral character. But who can persuade * French observer that such is the true state of the case! THE DEAD-BEAT. The American “confidence woman” is also another being whose existence abroad is a shame and a scandal to her compatriots. Usually of some social standing, she contrives by dint of her acquaintance with some few of the respect able members of the American colony, to ob tain credit from dress-makers and hotel-keepers, and to carry on a successful warfare against poverty, without the slightest help from that all-potent weapon, money. Of course there comes a day of reckoning and of retribution; whereupon she either makes her escape, to com mence her depredations in some new field, or else contrives, by dint of tears and piteous pro testations, to extract some pecuniary assistance from her fellow-citizens who mav chance to be sojourning inthesame city as herself. It ishard for an American gentleman to see a woman weeping and suffering without doing something to relieve her, and so she generally gets com fortably enough out of her first scrape; it is only at hen. second and third that she gets gen erally found out and comes signally to grief. The ways and vagaries of these impecunions dames arc rather amusing sometimes. It is re corded that one of them, 'being in the most ab ject depths of poverty,, according to her own showing, was generously accommodated with a loan of3o francs by some soft-hearted country man of her own, whereupon she purchased a pair of lightkid gloves, hired a fiacre, and went out to pay calls. In another instance one oi these adventurous ladies borrowed 000 franca from a gentleman, and on his calling npon her to reclaim his loan, was informed by her that, instead of her bavins borrowed the money from him, he haa borrowed it from her, and if he made any mor< such claims upon her she would appeal to the Consulate for protection. As he had ho evi dence of the debt in his possession he woi forced to resign himself to the loss of his mon ey. Wherever these women go there is weeping and wailing among hotel-keepers and dress makers. They are generally very dashing in style, flying at the highest game, putting up at the best hotels, and ordering gannents at tha most fashionable establishments. As the pen alty of imprisonment for debt has been abol ished in France, they may, if acute enough, es* cape all penalty for their misdeeds beyond tem porary annoyance. But let them bewarjt-how they attempt to obtain money by false pre tences. Such conduct comes under the head oi swindling, and by French law is punishable with imprisonment and fine. THE FORLORN FEMALE. These birds of prey must not bo confounded with another hapless class, the ■women who come abroad with a vague idea of finding some thing: to do. Lured by talcs of the surprising cheapness of living on this side of the water, and without any definite plan of action, they drift abroad only to find themselves stranded, penniless, and forlorn, upon a foreign shore. Teachers of English arc not in demand, and ed ucation in music is not to be picked np for noth ing; so that those resources of impecunious womanhood, teaching or singing, are not avail able. Untaught, untrained, and wholly misera ble, they generally end by becoming shop wom en or by soliciting alms wherewith to return home. 'But these are isolated cases, pathetic enough to merit recording, yet fortunately of infrequent occurrence. The usual type of the American woman abroad has, however, no affinity with this pover ty-stricken sisterhood. The extravagant woman competes with Empresses and Duchesses for the latest marvels from the ateliers of Worth and Virot. The enterprising woman makes her way into the most exclusive of social circles and tho most jealously-guarded shrines. The snobbish woman sits face to face with Kings and Princes, and gazes breathless upon old women who are glorified with the title of Qncen. The evflly disposed woman queens It at wfU in the circles of the deml-raonde, side by side with Cora Pearl and others of that ilk. One of the leaders of Parisian society Is an American by birth. The wife of the ex-King of Portugal was an Ameri can actress. The heroine of the greatest scandal which bas of late years been promul gated respecting a member of a Koval nouse— the' robbery of the diamonds of the Russian Archduchess Constantine—was a native of Penn sylvania. The hcauty.that enchants New York fairly dazzles Paris arid London. Style, grace, elegance, are all theirs. Beautiful as English women at their best, and stylish as Parisfennes, they lack no charm wherewith to captivate. But oh Imv fair compatriot a, invent some machincrj wherewith the fast girl may be suppressed. Sh< is a scandal and'a nuisance at home; she is doubly scandalous and twice as obnoxious abroad. If she must exist (and, like Richelieu, “ I see not the necessity ”), let 'her stav where her pranks arc at least understood, and when she is not set down as being ever so much worst than she ought to be, • .A HUNDRED YEARS!
