Its b'aultful anpeet at nigkt?Tkt diftnistnl Of the Belgian Minister. Quite an event baa occurred in the even tenor of the Sultan's life. He has juat returned from a voyage to Ismid, a small town situated on the northern shores of the Marmora, and occupying the sit* of ancient Kicomedta; a city built to gratify the pride of the great Diocletian, and where in the meridian of life and power he re signed hia sceptre to enjoy the pleasures of pri vate I tie. For several weeks the arsenals have been busy in fitting up the neeessary vessels for the Sultan and his suite. Two now steam frig ates lately arrived from England anchored be fore the palace of Dolnia Batchi. The embark ation of the Saltan was truly splendid, and perfectly oriental iu its character. The frigate destined to receive him was gaily decorated with flag-", whilst the blood-stained banner of the house ot Othman with its silver crescent and star floated above all. An awning of purple velvet, beautifully embroidered and lringed with heavy gold lace, covered the deck of the vossol. The beightsoverlook\ng the Bospliorus were thronged with vast crowds, anxious to sec the departure At twelve the large white gilded caique of the Sultan left the foot of the palace and polled towards the frigate, followed by hundreds of other caiques containing the in mates of the harem. Nothing certainly could have looked more picturesque than these grace ful Units quickly gliding along the surface of the water, filled with Turkish women decked out in their bright aud gaily-colored feredgees. When the Sultan reached the deck of the frigate a national salute was fired, and responded to by the other vessels of the fleet and the numer ous batteries along the shores of the Bosphorus, and shortly after tho whole convoy steered to wards the Gulf of Ismid. After spending sev eral daya in skirting the Asiatic coast and an choring for a night before the island of Prinkipeo, the tleet returned, and amidst the roar of artil lery the Sulun entered his palace of Dolma Batchi. A stranger arriving now at Constantinople, and taking a stroll upon the heijjhts that over look the B?>spborus from Dolma Batchi to Feri Kuei, would imagine that the entire population from some cause, had forsaken their mere en larged and fixed city habitations, and had be taken themselves to the primitive and pastoral custom of living under tents. For several weeks aet some three thousand soldiers have been usily engage! in preparing tho site of this vast city of linen, which has thus sprung up as if by magic, by order of tho Sultan,-for the celebra tion of the circumcision fetes. Cpon one of the highest points in the centre of this immense camp stands a large marque of erimson velvet, with hangings heavily cmt>rv?idered in gold, and before which is stationed a guard of the Impe rial troops in their showy uniforms. This ha? been erected tor the Sultan. Extending to wards Feri Kuei is a double row of green tents turmuunbed by gilded cresconts and stars, and hung with curtains of silk damask, appropri ated to the uae of the Grand Virier and other high functionaries of the Porte, the foreign min isters, the nashas, and the alernas, whilst cov ering the hills for miles around arc tents of every shape, slac and color, for the immense crowds that have flocked out to witness the dif ferent ceremonics that are to last several weeks. ! In front of the imperial tent a large space, en closed by a heavy chain to '.:eep oft the crowd, has bceu left, where upon different stands the rope dancora, actors, and jugglers perform their various fetes for tb? amusement oi the people The Mu^ulman population avail themselves of these fetes, given by the Sultan, for theirown children ; and it is said that do led* than eight thousand seven hundred have already been inscribed upon the lists. They are kept in tents especially erected for theiu, and no less than twelve thousand lambs are daily slaugh tered to supply them and the other numerous persons fed at the public expense, giving em ployment to eight hundred ouoks stationed at elanwur to prepare the necessary dishes. The entire population of Stamboul eeems |o have precipitated itself upon Pera. Tho streets are filled from early morning till late at night with crowds of turbaned old Turks, who per haps have never before crossed the Golden 11 >rn; and I have seldom seen such a variety of the ancient Turkish co?1urue?. The scene that presonts itself at night Is truly magical and oriental The vast space from Dol ma Batch* to Terre Kuei is Illuminated with innumerable varied-colored lamps, whilst the display of fire-works at different points ad ls a beauty and brilliancy to this city of tents un like anything I have over before witnessed. Immense cro rds. dressed in every variety of o??iume. throng the place, listening to the mu sic of the military bands, enjoying the beauty ot some new display of fire-wonts, or witnessing the agility of the rope dancers. The Sultan, followed by his gauuy guard, is seen strolling ara->ng the people; whilst the Sultanas and tho women of the harem drive out in the gay-col ored carriages of the palace. The ministers of the Porte entertain large numbers of invited guests, ut the expense of the Sultan, and, on Tuesday last, the diplo matic coryi dined at the palace of Dolma Botchi. During the continuance of the fetes, in order that the affnirs of government may not suffer, the Grand Yijier, l>r several hours of the day, attends to the duties of his office ; and it is certainly not one of the least remarkable featu4n*.f this singular affair, to see him read ing petitions and signing papers surrouudedby u ?iy and noisy crowd The diplomatic world of Pera has been some what ruffled by the Porte's sending the Belgisa Minister his passport*. As yet no reasons have been given for thus acting. I believe it is the first time the Turkish Government have re sorted to this civilised method of getting rid of a disagreeable diplomatic agent since it has been obliged to abandon the former ancient ai.d barbarous custom ot confining them within the walls of the .Seven Towers, xt is certainly due U> themselves and the foreign jiowcrs that their reasons should be published to the world. PrairviJG Waran.?Dr Bell, in his ''Trea tise on Baths,'' mentioaa the following simple contrivance for purifying water: A large earthen funnel, or stone bottle with the bottom beaten out. may have its neck lo*tsely st>pped with small stones, over which smaller ones tnay be placed, supporting layers of gravel increasing m fineness, and, lastly, covered to the depth of a few inches with fine saad. all thoroughly cleaned by washing. This apparatus may al ways be renewed, by taking out and wasning the upper stratum of sand. A still better me thod. suggested bv Dr Bell, is to filtrate by as cension,?this is done by having two jars, com municating together at the bottom; one contains the gravel, sand. Ac.; in the other, the turbid water is poured, which finds its way into the second, and, rising through the filtering mat ters. comes up quite clear. An improved ap paratus. adds I>r Bell, eonsistsof a small bo*, fiaed with lead, and having at its lower part charooui between two layers of sand. The pas sage of the water through this filterer is accel erated by artificial pressure, by which, from an equal body and surface of water, seventeen times the quantity can be passed as through a common filterer in the same time. The Egyp tians clarify the waters of the Nile by ruboiug an almond paste oa the inside of an earthen iar, which contains the water In Dongola, Nubia, Ac., beans and castor oil seeds are used, instead of the almond. The Nile water was, however, more successfully clarified by the introduction of a solution of alum, or of the powder itself, ia the proportion of a quarter or naif a grain to a quart of wat*r The waters of the Seine, at Paris, are purllied lu like manner, and the same t means are sometimes used here, when the igno bly J?ems is on a spree, as at present, and com pelling his loyal subjects to eat dirt -Hick \ v\9ttd Di*p*t(k. J | VOL. X. NO. 1,422. FOPS. Ilarpor s Magazino has an anccdote. intend ed to be very witty and pungent, about a cer tain Western merchant and 44 a fop" with an eye-glass. The fop. we are told, seated him self at the table ot his hotel opposite the nier cj*ar*t &nd two ladies with the latter, and lev elled his glass first at one and then at the other lady \\ hereupon the merchant, irom Ten nessee it was, seised a tumbler, and was, ac cording to tho arbiter elcgantiarium, who tells the story, apparently on tne point of throwing the glass "at tho scamp;'" but no, tho mer chant, with exquisite humor, placed it to his eye and stared (it " the fellow,'^neither break ing his skull nor kicking him from the table, but so putting him out ot countenance that he retired amid general laughter. Wo allude to this little history, as in the columns of our news papers generally there is no class of anecdotes moro eagerly parAled than these holding fops up to contempt, and there are magazines, it seems, that follow in the wake to procure ap plause for such tit-bits of literature. But let us look at the fop in particular and fops in gen eral, and see with what justice they are neld up to ignominy. To persons with weak eyes an eye-glass is an agreeable and wholesome substitute tor specta , . .Suspended, it leaves tho eye free to look at objects requiring no examination, whilo it may be put on and off instantly. as occasion re auires Among gentlemen in Euroi?c a glance irough the eye-glass is not considered in?ultin ? any more than a gaze through a pair of spec? tacles, and, directed at a lady, it is held to be a compliment. Indeed, with persons who are near-sighted, the use of it is habitual, and it is much better as a matter of taste. and for tho eye, too. than the nse of spectacles. It is prob able that 44 the fop" in question was n well dressed gentleman, whose clothes were not cut or oolored liko an undertaker's, and that he sat down modestly, und, being near-sighted, gaxed passingly through his glass at the ladies opposite. It was no ill-breeding, then, nor would it have been so considered if he had had spectacles on or looked with his naked eye. But not being Western it was received as'an insult. \N hat we need in this country is more and not fewer gentlemen called fops?men who dress with taste, are scrupulously clean, wear eye glasses if near-sighted, and use them as they choosc. do not chew tobacco and spit in other people's faces at hotels, theatres, rail-cars, and steamboats. "A fop" is, in the United States, universally well-bred. X\o have never known an exception. Manners, with him. are a study until they become polished, and dress a pursuit until it becomes an excellence. Most assuredly the South and West need fops. Such men are often models of industry. If men of business they arc accurate and to be relied on ; if artists or literary men, eminent for their taste. No man who ever lived was a greater fop thau Washington. He ordered his clothes of his tai lor with curious particularity. He dressed with extreme care He was exact and elegant with his horses carriages, and all cognate details, lie waj theretorc proportionally accuratc in other things. Had eye-glasses been in fashion, as his age increased, possibly he would have sported one. and looked across a table ?t the women opposite. Pitt, Canning, the Duke of Wellington, Charles Dickens, would all be con sidered tops by vulgar men. Among the men to whom England and the civilized world owe3 much is Brummell, the king ot fops. He found society outrageously dressed, and he left it, so far as it could imitate him, well dressed. He laid down ns a rule for a gentleman, ?? fresh water, and plenty of it ' when hardly a house knew the luxury of a bath. Indeed, so dirty and barbarous even was New \ork recently, that the Clarendon ?0t. *,DC0 bailt was the first hotel which had bathing rooms in connection with sleeping chambers; and the idea came from n fop, to our certain knowledge. We wish this country no worse luck than the multiplication ot fops?ot men who arc clean and elegant in dree*, mild in manners, cschcwers of filthy to bacco, gallant to the sex. and incapable of com mitting an insult. If they abounded among the chivalry," tobacco spitting and streot fighting would become incoutinently obsolete It they eould be established in the Bowery and rive Points, liquor bars und rows would be come unknown.? N. J'. Tribune. iIo*TEz, after Cowhiding in Munich, marrying any quantity of Englishmen, dan cing at Mabille, traveling all over the world, lighting, marrying promiscuously, dancing, and taming bears in California and Australia, has at last mounted the platform and is lecturing on what she does not by any means po&css? female beauty. As Lola smokes the strongest cigars and drinks the strongest cock tails, she is quite competent to disclose tho preservatives of fomalo beauty. As she is guiltless of rouge-pot or poudre de riz a la marechale, she can very well declaim against cosmetic* Having lived the lorette life right up to the hub in Paris, she is able to reveal the arts practiced by French women, such as bathing in milk and bein" pumice-stoned weekly; and used, according to popular belief, to the society of kings, countess es, duchesses, for the greater portion of her nat ural existence, she is quite familiar with the appearance of all the "quality" in Europe. Her lecture, as reported in a Canadian paper, commenced with the old anecdote of valor to man, swiftness to the haro, Ac., which was all very well, only she mistook its origin, attribu ting it generously to the translator instead of the author. Where does beauty lay? she asked? rather an equivocal question?and answered herself: often in the soft shadow of a drooping ??C".' , armere dimple, or beneath the tresses ^ '".ttle fantastic curl! Alas! she was ashamed to think of what small things will sometimes move the strangest and bravest of men, and many times m the company of (any quuntity ot) kings and nobles, with sadness she?bein" unable to read English, but familiar with the poets?had been torced to reflect on the sub lime words of Milton, where he speaks of woman 44 Fair, no doubt, and worthy Well Thy cherishing, thy honor, and thy love. Not thy subjection.'' Lola considers the English. Irish, and Sootch women the handsomest in the world, and thd Duchess ot Sutherland, she " who moves a nat ural queen, and is the paragon among the beautiful aristocracy of England," the hand somest ot all. Lady Blcssington was " marvel lous and voluptuous her neck, hand and foot wero so consummately charming that, al though res{?ectable women didu t pay much attention to her in London, they called her 4jthe goddess" in Italy. Lola sketched the Duchess of Wellington, 44 A beauty, with little intellect or animation;" the Sheridan family and "the handsome sons" and 44 unfortunate daughter;" the French beauties the Marquise de la Orange and the empress with the latter's caprir* for the pianist, Gottochalk; and wound up with a love-pat at Lord Brougham and his old remark?u what quantity!' In conclu sion, Lola recommended a few things ; temper ance, exercise, cleanliness and bran in the bath ' and observed in reference to a well cul tivated mind, that it conferred eloquence to the tongue, lustre to the eye, vermilion to the cheek and a general illumination to the whole per son ! r a H""?"ABD.-Not long since ed oiie hua ?."English Ke"'leinan, collect lTuh* irNiwray *"<1 reputable ship Mobtte?,uen' 10 New Voik by the a m<^ received ih-M. * ?t?fr come over a ateanier to lh7w?? h<i P"rP?*? of taking them to tne eat.

M?-tf 1MIE FAt OU1ER WHITB SULPHUR SPRINGS IN V R GINIA, OFFERED FOR SALE TO THE PUBLIC IN LOTS. 1 his property has been held under an net of incor pomtion since HCM. The chartered property then consisted of l.liui-i acres of Land, in Fauquir county, including the improvements thereon, and was divided into 2/irtn shares, est nnatcd in the clmr terat 51'ioc.i<:h. The suluieiil>er having subsequently reacquired the property, sold a part thereof, and there now remain fully eleven hundred acres, to gether with the buildings enlarged and greatly im proved. The more easily to sell such a property, and to increase its value, he hss laid off the larger portion of the lain! into al?>ut lo.rmi Building Lots, with convenient streets.of fin leet width, running north ami south, east and west, with a view to the formation of a village or city, to be called " War renton Springs." These lots nearly surround the reserved sixty-live acres wlneti include the Sulphur Springs and all tuecontigooiis buildinzsnrid improve ments. These ?5 acres, also, sre odered for sale, in 2.V?i shares, in connexion witli the lots; the whole 12.5'?i lots and shares lieitu estimated at ?10 each, and when taken to bo partitioned by lot; those gol fing the 2,ji>0 shares will constitute the corporation iimler the amended ctrtrtor of February i, 1R5I, known as the Fauquier White Sulphur Springs Company ; and those getting the respeotive lots will receive their deeds lroin Mr. Ho. tfndgin.a gentle man of the huhest character and business tiualifiea tions. to whom, as trustee fortiic purpose,the entire property has been conveyed. The valuation of this property by the sworn officer of the Commonwealth shows that the buildings alone are worth $xn,ioi; the Assessment per aore is put at jJ84. Sueli property requires more literal expendi tures for the public accommodation than individuals are able or willing to risk, and the fact that so manv will !k> interested in the succsu of the Springs, ami in building around them, will probably doulde, im mediately after the company is formed, the present estimate. A subscril?er will,in the worst event, get a lot <of the almost universal dimensions in New York > lor the sum of ten dollars, H?' will get a lot on which he can build, at the very fountain of health; he may reside on it for tlio slimmer season only, or for the year. The inducements to build will lie ir resistible; nud the fact ofsuch buildings fating erect ed will immeasurably enhance the value of the Springs and of the lots. There is no reason why a city of magnitude should not rise up and Nourish at this place. The Rappahannock river is navigable to the spot. A very little energy would always keep the locks in repair. The Alexandriaand Lynchburg railroad crosses the riveralsiutxor 9 union lielow this land. Coal, at aeheap rate, may lie unloaded from the cars iuto the tx>ats. indefinite steam power may thus be commanded at will ; ai.d the facility of trnns portation gives the same advantages which I.owell has for unlimited business. The railroad, already within 6 miles, will soon extend to New Orleans, whose inhabitants miy thou reauh these Springs iu three days. As healthv a spot as any in Virginia?in an abundant region?with all these facilities why should not a city thrive and prosper here/ At all events, around these health-giving waters, already so extensively and beautifully improved, all.the high and the low, the rich and the poor, have now an op portunity of sojourning for the summer season, or longer, on terms graduated by their means ; and the benignant design of the legislature in granting the charter may lie realized to tho fullest extent. Thia property is tendered to the public at about the value on which the taxes are paid to tho State, and greatly below the original outlay. The assess ment was made by an intelligent public officer no way interested. Almost indefinite profits may l>e relied ou if the plan of sale be carried out. If it be not, no one will be injured ; even the small sum of ?Stl" is not required to be paid until the subscription be completed, and tho partition shall t>e made by the trustee, assisted by two justices of the pcnce. In tho mean time checks in favor of the trustee.or other satisfactory arrangement for the Subscription may lie made, not to I to used till the day of partition. The trustee will apply the money after partition, in the first placc, to the extinguishment of all liens on the property, so as to give assurance of good title?a title reported in li?fi, by able attorney s, as theu en tirely satisfactory, nud which has twen doubly con firmed by 19 years of quiet, undisturbed possession since tluit tune. The plan of estimating lots and shares in the Springs Company, as of equivalent value in the par tition, will save trouble in the division ; and after tins partition the interests of the lot-holders and Springs stockholders will l>e in law entirely distinct, while the suceess of one part* must greatly enlianco theother. Anv one may siihecrilie foroneor more shares in this purchase, and his interest will be in proportion, THOMAS bllhEN. Note.?1.
