We give below au admirable article on the subject of Gentlemen's Hress in America, translated from the French of the eminent journalist Blague do Vuanart. whose contri butions to the principal Parisian and Belgien journals of late years attracted so much at tention It has often been remarked hy traveller*, that one of the predominant characteristic:! of our Amorjc.iu cities ia their newness. Every where there is a fresh, bright color, and an expression of recei.t manufacture : the house? seem to have been turned out by thousand* to order, and look as if juit finished in one cokssal bat5ii?the (lavements ara washed as if for a holiday?the very trees on tho side wa.ks, in their elaborately trimmed lieatnes*. look as if they were young, and not yet ac customed to a regular growing life?in short, the endless newness and recent fashion <;f everything creates at last a feeling as though the whole city were for sale, and its proprie tors ware bent on keeping it as clean, au'i as much in the stylo as possible, so that no op portunity to praise it as ?? a neat end tasty thing, sir,'' might be lost .But not in houAes alone do we perceive end less newness and never ending submission to th<? mode as though the Americans, who hav? succeeded thus far, better than any other na tion in annihilating space, were bent on defy ing lime a.s9, and leaving no trace of his pr' gross in the past. .Those people, so raijid, so brtutque., when threatened with delay, po intoxicated with tho endless spirit of busi ness, stsll contrive to present in their persons a newness and freshness of attire which alto, gcthcr corresponds with their hou.es, and wuicii. U> a practical philosopher, is p3tbaps one of the most curious of the lesser pheuom ena of the race. For, as among the houses, t^ere aro l ut few of those palatial edifices so comin n in Europe, although their freshness aud luxury of paint and scrubbing distinguish es them entirely from tho citizen homes of r ralioo and Germany, or even England, so the American, though but rarely a fashion-plate danuy. still in his stylo and attiro maintains on r.n average, an infinitely higher standard a? aspired to by his C'lleaguo in perhaps in the samo lino of life in Europe When you promenade even the Boulevards of ',ri3J of r'do in the Champs Elyseoi?thoMj jjariens of all tho flowers of fashionable ?t tire, where tho robe? anl flounces of Victo i rine wave in harmony with the artistically c mstruoteu ooatc of Humann?you do not, for *11 that, find yourself in a multitude of well dressed people. N<>, even there the lor. * haired peasant en Mouse? the artist, fierce, picturesque, and sometimes dirty?tho old gentleman who iccails tho storms of tha revo lution, and who clings fondly to his long queue and coat a fa Muzrrin, (or who, rather, suf f*;rs t:.em to cling to him;?all these persons, picturusquo though they may be, break in upon ino idea ol plain good dressing. * They ni ly serve as foils to others, but aro in them selves discord:?of silk, cotton, and wollen ? Hut let some one who can recall the best ressed strset multitude which he has ever so>.n in Europe, walk some fino morninz up an American street, and that at about Lite o clock, j'ist when the entire current of bw-i neso men is flawing down town in one enor mous tide towards itd daily hauuts! bar V'rf'jence, I would commend Broadway, New lork for this observation, rince X can recall no otner city in which such a vast flood cf lite flows through one single street You who have only seen the Boulevards, or the Pont A "hen most filled with passengers, or who have derived ideas ot a crowdcd thor oughiare from that terror to strangers, thy Strand in London, or who believe that the \ leuna Prator was ever too full on tho day of a high procession, would regard them all as dreary solitudes wheu compared w ith Broad way. In all this immense multitude there is not ore who is not more than passably drcs^d; and it you see a single person among them whf>se boots are not fruitless, or with soles which are net thin as a rose leaf, you may rely upon it that he is an Englishman, a Ger man. or a millionaire None bu' a foreigner or a man whose standing is moro than eccured in society, woull dare transgress the law of good boots, which weighs more heavily upon the American than ell the ten commandments and the common code of the land Chiefly are we impressed with the fact that among all these fine clothes there is nothing outre?nothing absurd - unless it be indeed an occasional instance given by some one who in his intense eagerness to keep up with the fashion, has actually leaped beyond it. In this uniformity?this droad of being '? odd''? we have a curious illustration of one of the ultimate social effects of a republic. In all communities where every one e'xerciscs freely his right to express opinion, and where such rights are cherished as the dearest of privi leges, we soon have a public opinion?for as history in nothmg but a fusion of biographies, so in a republic the governing opinion is no thing but tho concentrated '.houghts of the many. This public opinion, confined in Eu rope to so few poiuts, extends itself in Amer ica over many?I may say myriad? It has a few bad points, and many good ones It is tho eauso of a little hypocrisy and of much sound morality. It suffers no one to wear nn old coat, but condemns to a dreary and des perate life of brandy, of clubs and of stables, the man who gives himself entirely up to wearing fine clothes or to being idle. It is a striking peculiarity of all this fine dress-of all this broadcloth and velvet in in winter, and of all this delicato linen Orien tal cloth, which look like woven air, in sum mer, that it is enormously expensive The Parisian pent it rentier?the small proprietor who, in common with tho Prussian officer, is supposed to possess the art of carrying economy to its utmost extent, would tremble with terror could ho know the prices which th- se clothes cost, and the sacrifices which rome of those young clerks are imperatively obliged to make "to preserve nppeararces," and with them thei situations Yet with all this, as I have before said, there is but little elsborata dandyism, none oftho exquisiteism tite a quatre eptn Wm which distinguishes the petit mure of fans. No-the same inexorable public opin ion which requires the young man rising in I the world to conform to a certain standard, also forbids him from going beyond it. I do not remember to have seen or heard it re marked, but I am none the less certain that to succeed amon^ Americans, and above all to acquire with them the slightest influenco or respect, you must be neat in your person I am convinced of this from the frequency with which I have heard one American, while disparaging another, say " He is slovenly." This was always a concluding argument, and sufficed to silence the warmest friends of the unfortunate sloven. One of the most curious instances narrated to me, and which singularly illustrates this American mania for neatness, relates to tfce very eminent journalist and politician, Hor ace Urccly, who adopted a style of excessive carelessness in his outer garments, simply to attract attention to the exquisita finene a of his linen and his personal cleanliness in the use of the bath. All of his friend^ were carefully informed of this latter pe culiarity, and when some ignorant opponent endeavored to blacken the character tf Horace by speakiug of old hat and boots, tie was at (>nco confuted with?41 Ah ! my dear, you deceive yourself?Greely is t'eiy particular in his shirts and dratrerf ' I have hoard, but do not vouch for tho fact, that the lingerie?the linen of this eminent man costs from ten to fifteen thousand franca j per annum. p It will readily be understood that where a public Opinion forces with such silent ferocity t a standard of dress on ail the world, thsre v [ must be a perfect pa rad if e for the man who ?lesires to obtain an insolent notoriety in the cheapest and readiest manner It it very |m ssibie that some of my readers hare beard fan ancient teacher ot languages who re solved a few years ago in Paris, to become notorious by his drew What pains what ?g>ny of invention and of extravagance tho ui.fortunate was obliged to undergo, ere he could attract attention. Bands of blue, scar ? e and yellow ribbon, six inches wide, twined around nis hat and trailing six feet from it? a scarlet velvet cape and gilt shoes hardly caused as much observation as would be granted in America to a man with a cloak over his arm There lived not long since in New York, ? man whose peculiarly was that be wore very ' r*ry "gged and very dirty elothes. and. m addition to this had no fixed place of ?ibi'de, but slept in lime kilns or barn* " No thing very remarkable, this,'" one w*uld say, in Lurope, where every city has thousand* of -uch vagrants. Ah! but you do not undet -tand America! That lime kiln vagabond whj one of the lions of New York?his ap pearacco in Broadway was chronicled in the first papers ; when some one cave him a new old coat, it wm put down as en event in their reports when he died, the press embalmed .?a* memory in obituaries, a thousand rotund* w< ro let fly to his early life, a drama intro ducing him in his dirty coat, drew tears from the eyes of the ladies, and as I write a novel entitled " The Limekiln Man" lies before me. As* the fir?: New Yorker whom yeu meet, if he has ever heard of the Limekiln man ' 1 here is a man who forms one of the "intta tutions of Philadelphia?everjthing ia an institution in America?to whom there oc our red one day the brilliant idea of walking with the gait of a young roeruit undergoing is first drill. This startling, this wondrou., tlvH amazing conception wa> crowned with the iutlcst success?a success which he further se o^red by wearing his hat on the back part of 11 is head and tucking his pantalowns i^to his b Wonderful genius ' happy man ! Ou fine you m.iy see him walking along Liiesiiut street?tho fashionable street of Phil adelphia?condescendingly touching bis hat u> every lady, whilo all the wrrld murmurs atter him. "1 here goes the Man with the Mil itary Walk." It is needles to ay that the few youu; or middle aged men in America who arc gilted with wealth and leisure, and who give tbem * Ives up seriously to living for dress alone, ?uecerd (uturvrillr in attracting adm.ration, eu.y and hatred?as in ail part* of the world And wheu wo rcflect ou the manucr in which Americans euccotd in dress when tbev give them, clvos entirely up to it, it is really'auiai n;g that such lions are so rare among them. Tuo 'gilded youth of European capitals are not m .rc elaborate, more butterfly-like. m re perfectly exogenous, as they say in botany of those plants whose growth is entirely out ward, than arc the young men who appear at soirees aat receptions in Atlantie American cities. I have not exhausted this subject?nay, I uave not begun it. But I have said enou-h t. show you that in America, as in all parts of tho world, the soctal spirit of the people, its government and it* morale, are all, to a de gree, mirrjred in their dress American Phlegm Li.e Illustrated ifUites the following story t from the American experience of a ?* Monsieur A'frel d Almbert who having toured this I country through, of course published bis last Ideas about it to the world at large. Far away from the great cities, half hidden in the foliage, was the modest log hut of a man, half trapper, half fisherman, and more than half savage Of course his name was bmi:h. He was married, and he and his wif<* in this one little chamber led the happiest life in existence, for on an occasion she would n t object to go twenty miles to hear the Baptist miuister preach Oi:e evening at sundown they were both to gether in their little cabin, she knitting stock ings for the next wintei's snows.he cleaning the barrel of his fowling pie:e?ail the pans of which were lying dismounted about him?both busy and neither uttered a syllable. By degrees a dull but regular sound breaks upon the silence of the wilderness The steam ? cr is ascending the river, making the bast of us way against the stream. But neither bmith nor his wife pay any attention; he goes on cleaning his guu, she knitting her clicking I ho air, ho* ever darkens; a thick smoke rises upon every side ; a formidable explosion is suddenly heard ; ono would have said it was the discharge of several cannon at once The b 'tier had burst; the vessel was sunk ; every thing was destroyed Smith and hit wife did not look up; he went on cleaning his ^uri, she knitting her stocking, lor explosions of steamers are so common. But this one whioh was to interest them more nearly, for scarcely had the explosion ended, before the roof of the cabin split in two and something heavy descended through the nperiue. This something was a man who dropped between tho pair without, however disturbing either?he still cleaning his gun? she still knitting her stocking But the traveler ?so rudely introduced? seemed rather astounded at his descent. Af tor a few minute-', however, he resumed his oolness and began to look about him? fixing his attention, at last, upon the bole through which he had just arrived. "Ah! my man. ' sxid he at length, addressing Smith, "what's the damages V' On this, Smith, who had not given up his Work, put aside his rifle, and lookiug up to estiinato his loss, answered, after some little reflection, "Ten dollars." 44 You be hanged * exclaimed the traveler. ? Last week in the explosion I happened to be iu with another steamer, I fell through three flights in a now house an l they only charged me five dollars. No, no?I know what s the thing in such matters Here's a couple of dollars, and if that won't do, to and sue me and be hanged !" Progress or Telescopic Science.?Sir Bavid Brewster, adverting to the prospect of future astronomic*! progress and discovery, s lysthat, howevergreat have been the achieve ments of the past, and however magnificent the instruments to which we owe them, the limit* of telescopic vision have not been reached, and space has yet marvelous secrets to surrender. A ten feet reflector will b? duo to science before the close of the eentury, and a uisc of flint glais, twenty nine inches in iiametcr, awaits the command of some liberal government, or some munificent individual ; > be converted into an achromatic teloscona ?f extraordinary power. There is no doubt hat these expectations will be realiied in less hanvalf a century. A CoxcLt'Kive Reason?The best and most inclusive reason for an effect that weaver re nember to have heard, writes a western cor espondent, was given by a "one idea" Dutch nan, in reply to a friend who remarked.
