[Froin the Westminster K*vlew ] The mantle is. perhaps. the best idea among the fashioM of the Jay, and now and then we ?>"? *?? ?J * sensible woman, which ful fil'* *?' reasonable conditions; but the major iiy .-t*theui are so made as to partake of all the disadvantages ot the existing gown. It used t be thought. and it will be thought again that ei ery thing in the elo-ik way loses its char acter. an J therefore its tastefulness. bv bein fitted to the figure. A modern mantle which is confined at the waist and has sleeves in serte I in a tight artuhole. is certainly not a f veritable mantle, whatever elie it may be; and w..en we see it. as in this suiuuu of 1?57. cut d-wu to a mere band round the chest, extend ing no higher than the point of the shoulder and turning into a sleeved jacket below, we have uo uiore to mj toit as a respectable mem Ler of the mantle tribe Ii?t to respectability :u the eyes of t iste. it usually forfeits all pre tensiou by its parade of oruameiitation. Its fringes, and IiijIm, and braids, and gimps, and la.-e*. and buttons?its trillings, aud quillings, and puttings, and edgings, and slashings, are tncreiricioa* f?.rany garment of the cloak order; ..r t >r permanent fashion. though this article is psrh*p- the least objectionable of the whole suit now favored by the caprice of the d:iy.

There is an aneo dete told by one of our travelers in the I'nited . .alet. of a dressmaker in a New England vil age who. on being reproached about the fit ?d* the gowns she had made. replied that she did not see how she could do more than sbe had done, she had obtained the proportions of the \ enus de .Medici, and if the ladies were not satisfied with what would tit her. why. then their taste was not to be admired.

Dr Harlow Lewis, the husband of the woman, has sued for a divorce, on a charge of adultery with one lyler. Ihe history of the case is given by the Sandusky Register : " L?r llarlow Lewu, the hutband of Mm Lewis, was put upon the stand, and testified to the intimacy between his wife and Tyler. He ?titei that lyler had made his (Lewis*) house his home ?iue? lust spring; that he had been SICK there, and had received from Mrs. Lewis attenti >ut that no woman could, with propriety render to any maubut her husband; that Tyler had gradually gained more and more ascen dancy over bar; that they (Tyler and Mrs. l<ewu) had traveled abroad together; came to gether to Berlin to atteud the ?

WM. B. ROlJZlE, Elder ot the Methodist Conference. Wil.MiJM;ton, N. C., June 27, IBM. Mr. J. Tobias? Dear Str : I am happy to say fhat the Spectacles which I obtained from you last week are entirely satisfactory. From an inequality in the visual ran;* of my eyes, I have hcictofore found great difficulty in getting glasses of the proper focal dis tances. It affords me pleasure to state, that hy the aid of your optometer this difficult) has lieen happily obviated, so that the Glasses you furnished me are decidedly the best adapted to iny eyes of any 1 have ever yet used. Very respectfully yours, R. B. DRANE. Rector of St. James' Pariah. Having been induced by a friend to visit the estab lishment ?f Mr. Tobias for *he purpose ol tiy in^ hia glasses I was furnished with a pair aiightly coiored blue,.whioe have afforded tne more relief and gratifi cation than any I have ever tried. My night, origin all* verv good, wa* injured by writing and rendingat night, frequently to a very laiehour: but with the ant of thcao glasses I can study almost aa late as ttvur. hii.l that too without the pain I ha\ e previous ly sullerod. JOHN WILSON, Late Comnussioneur Geu'l Land offcee. Dec. 11, 1855.

I was recommended to Mr. JohnTobitsasa skilful oplieian; and as 1 nave e* es of remarkable peculiari ty, I was gratified to find that Mr. Tobias seemed to comprehend them by inspection and some slight measurement, and he has mad* me r. pair of Specta olea that suits me admirably.

Sir: The paiT of Spectaelcs yon furnished mo yesterday are particularly satisfactory to me. They are very decidedly the best I possess, and I am the owner of eignt or nine pairs, carefully selected m different plaoes ar.d'from opticians reo omrnQnded to me on aooount of Iheir professional standing in France, England, and the I nited States. 1 have be6naiso pleased with your remarks and di rections on the treatment of the eyes, for the pur pose of preserving and improving tne sieht Respeotfully yours, CHS. CALDWELL, Professor of M. C.. Louisville, Ky. Brooklyn Orthopakuic Institution, April, 1854. After most oareful esamiraiion ?d Mr. J. Tobias's Giasse*, ! am enabled to testify that their hardness, clearness, pokshjng, and exact optical shape render them paiUcuiAily reoomitiendable to those whose merely optical impairment of the eyes are in want of such auxiliaries. 1 consider, moreover, Mr. Tobiaa fully qualified to determine tue focus of the e> e.both by nis optical knowledge and experience, and by moani of his optometer. In addition, I can lurther state that Mr. Tobias suppr.ed some of my pa tients with Glasses, to their aiid civ satisfaction LEWIS BAl EK. M. D .

In the exporieuoe of even two yaurs, I have found great difficulty in o'vUuniug Speetaclcs that were ex actly adapted to the weakness of my sight. Tins in convenience Mr. Tobias sefms to have removed for the present by the substitution for me of better and more suitable Glasses. They are oiear, chry stal-like and oomfortablo to my eyes. I would oommend him to those who from age or other infirmity require ar tificial aid in this way. J. J. SlMKfNS, M. D. Wilmington. N. C., June 16, 1854. To persons who have had the sight oftheireyes so impaired as to require theuae of Glasses, I would reoommend Mr. John Toluas as a suitable person from whom to obtain such Glasses as they may re quire. as he has suited me with a pair of Spectacles forafarand near sight. My si>:ht has l>ee!i impaired very much by a service of years in the Post Office Department, which berth required me to be on dutv from 11 o'clock at night till alter day, dunnr which time 1 used but one light. W. A. WALKhR. Departyiknt of Interior, May 3, IR55. From natural defects and the unequal range of iny eyes, I have I teen compelled to use glasses for seve ral y?ar6. I have tried different opticians without obtaining glasses perfectly fitted to my eyes. Four months sinoe Mr. Tobias made two pairs especully for ine, which I have found to serve me perfect!y. By the use of his optometer he is enabled to adapt f lasses most minutely to the eve. I most cheerful y recommend .Mr. Tobias to all having occasion to uso glasses, and bear iny testimony as to hia skill as an optician. HENRY E. BALDWIN, g* jf, Aas't Sec'y to sign Land Warrasts.
