Yhf? male ambulance tits been adopted as a great improvement, ana m possessing man; a<fv?nt*i*es orer the wheeled ambulance in moat of Ula Lnropean armies. It wag u?ed ia the Crimean wa(\ aad is reoommendeu by Capt. Delxfield in his report founded #n observations upon tha: wax. The defect of the wheeled ambulance is that it ia confined to practicable highways, and in liable to block up the said road* and impede the arwnlt of hnim. tmnni >nd HrtlllArv ap?V Mid in thia maj tm prom*** futmc*, a* it MilRun It caneot penetrate woodlands, ravine*, rocky heights. or broken, rough' and aneven ground* on which battles are usually fought. The mule litter, on the contrary, consisting of an irci^framed saddle placed on the back of a rure-Tooted animal, to which are attached, oq eaah aide of tho animal, securely fastened sacking-bottoms or cote, oan peaetrate every part of the most difficult battle fiali. and furnish in the iaoit prcrnpl ner, that assistance upon which the life of the wounded soldier or officer depends, and without which many must perish and do perish on every battle field where this modern invention is ol'adopted. In the vicissitudes of a large battle-field, the hud-lltter, carried by men, cannot be rolled upon. Footmen, encumbered with a heavy hand-litter, osn neither approach the weunded on a varying field of battle, nor retire with them to a place of safety with the confidence and facility of men mounted on strong surefooted animal?, hence the wounded will often not be approached at all. or if taken up on haad-littera will be abandoned and left to perish It may b? a mile, or even miles from the place where the wounded fall to tho nearest ambulance or a hospital, and the intervening country wooded, rouah, broken, or rocky. It is in vain to suppose that two men. with a hand litter and t&e weight of a wounded soldier or offiier, will often successfully orerooSft these obstacles, while the mule ambulance would possess much greater chanoes ol succe??, and would save two wounded men with much mote, certainly than one could be saved by toe hand-litter. o.,r * 4,'v experience in war admonishes us that it is twl policy to rej-jct such obvious im7>rtTt in the art of war because they are new, or at least new to us.

Ail Mr K hler as*.- we understand; is that a boa Ml of practical disinterested men (not afflicted with the chronic prejudices of habit may be appsiated to examine the advantages of hi? invention. This wc hope the Government will cheerfully accord, in view of the va^t importance to the army of the consequences defending upcasts action. Every ino mat may oe saved Dy me adoption of this -vement will be a trophy to the enlightened policy of the Government which adopts it. t? ii-jTMaw the ?dvant*ge which seems to okvious The New York Times, whose editor wa, * ipeetat"r f the late baule-fielda in Italy called tbe a' lent ion of the Government t i- -ubj <:; in number of the 2'd ultimo. lntelU%-.nctr. f?TR Nf.w ' Monitors" to be Tbe New York Journal of Cninm?mn Mr. I'ox, Assistant Secretary of the Navy, is dow in this city, to look after important ioterectj connected with bis department. We are informed that, among the objects of his i*it. is the immediate construction of four fl^a-ing batteries enctly, or* nearly, like the Mom*. .>r," and that the prelimenary arrangement to tbat end have been m*de with Cupt. Kri?s?on. The batteries are all to be built with all poiiibla dispatch. No belter illustration ean oe given of the remarkable inventive genius of Captain Ericsson than the fact that, after the severe and complete test to which his battery hss been subjected, ohIf one improvement, and that a trifling one, can be pointed out. It is the substitution of a cylindrical, instead of a rauare. form in the little nilnt- I hou'e. In the engagement at iiniupton Roads, tbe only injury sustained by the Moaitor wu the slight springing of one of the "logs'' in this square pilot-house. Had the shape of tbe beau* been round, like that of the turret, it is supposed that .the balls would bare glanced from the former?harmlessly as fipm the latter. This change will, therefore, be made in tbe Monitor, u it has not been already mad*, and will be introduced in tbe models of tbe four new batteries. Another alteration of doubtful expediency has been suggested, via: the transfer of tbe pilot-bouse 0 from iu place about a rod from the turret, to the top of th* turret, giving to that "Yankee v. _ .vuw wj* v pp^/vaiauvc V| a ICicolUpC with one joint drawn out. The only obvious advantage in this change is the elevation of the lookout to a higher point of vision. Diaeaae in Lambs. We quote below from Mr. Spooner on di?f mw in lamha : ?'' A n v ma<ii?iiui ?in?? ? j ?V HOstroy worms in the air puugv acts by being absorbed into the system. In the cage of worms in the windpipe two objects should be sought for?one to destroy the enemy, and the other to strengthen and support the system which is being subjected to such debilitating and exhausting influences In the oase of chickens some speak of the good effect of tobaeeo smoke introduced so as to almost produce suffocation, albeit the creatures sometimes die of the remedy. In calves a cure has been effected by administering liiae water, and profcably it would be equally effectual for Iambs. The dose for a lamb would be about two minces daily, ?ixl about two <iracb??s of alt should be given at another part of tbe day. This treatment should be followed for some day* Better still is the plan of administering oil of turpentine, whieb being taken into the (itom*ch is soon absorbed throughout the system.

PARIS FASHIONS FOR MARCH. [From Le Follet } Tbe mode of decreasing the width of the skirts of dreeae* at the walat is'loora and more adopted; of eourse, the bottom of the skirts mast be very fall?that is an indisputable fact; an ample training skirt mast decidedly give ?raee to the figure; at the same time it is quite inadmissible in tbe streets?onlj allowable for indoors or carriage wear. Ere!i tarlatan and tulle dresses ire made with trains Every, breadth is gored; all silk dresses are submitted to thu rule. Visiting dresses are to? longer made with plain skirts. The material may be more or less beautiful; but that which oomtitutee tbe true eleganoe of a rob* is the trimming. There is a great rarfety. WewiM describe two or three difTereoVstyles. Velvet is do longer so frequently placed it wide bands at the edge of dresses, but rather in ruohes, put on In /rraequcs or in rings. Trimming of the same material as the dress is also worn.' Narrow plated flouncee, set on in thrpec; hoviilonn** between, or ww of terry velvet. There is also an elegant paste menterit of chenille: several rows of it en the skirt. This is always the same color as the dress On one dress of black gros de Su4dc we notice an insertion of black guipure over velvet ribbon. Another robe, silver drab moire antique, with some of the same guipure orer white taffetas. 1 he most costly material teems not to be a la mode, unless trimmed; we may, perhaps, except moire antiquo and velvet?yet these are frMuen tl^ar nam en ted. High hxftea are sometimes made open, but it is the exception; generally with a point, when the material is rioh, for full dress or evening visits. One vary simple and pretty trimming we saw on a rose colored moire antique?rows of chenille fringe, finished off with buttons at the bottom ; the sleeves made with rrvim. and the body trimmed; cuffs to match Another ornament was of velvet moire antique, like the dress; a narrow band, double platted, At the head a ve*y light pxstementertt, large buttons, made of moire down the sleeves, whteh waa made with rewrs. The bottom of the skirt bad five rows of very narraw plaited bands pat on in garlands. For ball dresses, the point 'd Espagne is, perhaps, the moat elegant ornament. A complete dress may be obtained of it?akirt, body and sleeves. Now that ball dresses are so ax* cessively fairylike, it is a great difficulty to arrange trimmings upon them with good taste, either in tulle, game or, above fell, laoe; for cach seems heavy when placed upon such light, vaporous foundations, bouillons of tulle and ruches of crape or tarlatan oompose the dress, and flowers are placed in the miadte of tufts of tulle. Many ball dYesaes are made with tunics or over-Bkirts, buttthers are made entirely of boutllonnu of tulle, A rouleau of double tulle, quilled, trims the first two rows. and above tbfs a drapery of tulle, or lace, or double plus* bands. A seoond skirt, also of talle, falls over this; it is doable, and relieved by bouquets of flowers or bows. The style of evening coiffure Is not only extremely elegant, but equally becoming Feathers, flowers, velvet, ribbons, lace, ana precious stones, are all used; and several of these materials are found in one head dress. Dress caps no longer resemble the old fashioned cap, but, rather an elegant head dress. The form is round, with a thick ruobe of tulle, trimmed with flowers or bows of ribbon or I velvet. Sometimes ft black violette forms all the cap; it is disposed m points, and a single flower?white, red, or pink, a?eording to the sompleotion of the wearer?placed on the bandeaux. This stjle i? verj simple and pretty. Another bead-dress, in the nmn style, was made of black lace, forming a violate behind, ami in frnnt * nniiiF r>f ?Kir? ? ! /! ? ??"J ? //w " ??.v^*v??UW40, *J-4 i AWU with black velvet, worked with gold; or aooiffure. composed of plait* of red velvet, worked with pearls, with rod feaihert placed at the side Scime wreathe of flowers haF? plaits of velvet, worked with diamonds or pearls. One modut? makes several head-dresser of hot house litao mixed with velvet, and agraffes of diamonds. The white lilac forms a ton ft? over the forehead, without leaves the bandeaux are rolled back over the flowers. By thefSide of the ear, roques of velvet and diamonds?the whole fastened together at the back by a bunch of white lilac. Wreaths? tnAf Ifl A BftT fnll rnnn/l ap wreaths?are no longer worn Diadems, pouf.i, bouquets, feathers, and plait* of gold or velvet, replace the wreath The great quantity of cutis now worn do not admit of full wreaths. The detached bouquets are mounted in such a manner that they can be rearranged each time they are wore, so as to form a fresh head-dress. There is little variety in bonnets this month; black velvet trimmed with whit* or red leathers, are still fashionable; the trimming become tnereasingly voluminous; and lie feathers, in-1 stead of forming a tuff ?t the top, now frequently reach to the ourtaia. White felt bonnets are coming into fashion The Empress wore one the other day, trimmed inside and out with brier roses. They are mostly trimmed with marabout feathers, either white or colored; they are, however, more disttngue wun wmt?.
