TH E EVENING STAR Gradation* it? The "Hound Tabb*" t!'l? week, has an ad mirable amd* on if** subject of mourciug babtlitnen?s, especially tfiosi* bv whi.-h lady mourners express the different decrees of their sorrow,?and of which means of proclaizniug oors onr sex are deprived. The writer says, Ln a fine vein of bitter irony:? ?? We men have no such opportunity to ex press sense ofonr bereavement in .'inelaborate way. Our tailors uniform us ln funereal black, onr ckepeliers encircle our nata with crape, and Itsere a>. eud. A widower cannot advertise the freshnt* s or staleuess of his sad condition by his clothes. It is impossible to jud^ of the state of his feelings from his hue. In Jact the las'*- ui mankind iu this country runs so gener ally to black that it is only now and then that affliction finds one of us in motley. In nine <a*es out of tea, all we require to put us in fnli mourning Is a weed round the beaver. 0.nDot this be remedied! Why should there not b" sorrow stores for the stupider sex ! Is there any just reason why lonely rren should not be put through a course of French grays and puces and lavenders as well as women T Ilo not onr griefs become flue by degrees and beautifully less In the earn - way as those of the queers of creation ? Certainly they do. Then ?-t the progress of the sequence be made mani fest in our coats and vests and pantaloons. I^et us htive the gradations of fading melan choly denoted by our hat cinctur?s, so that the public, and more particular the angelic portion of it, may understand how we are gKttiug alone with our tribulations. How can the fair creatures know, under present cir cumstances, whether an unfortunate widower bus just been plunged into inconsolability, or 1.v emerging from it. in a lively and approach able frame of mind * Who can ?av how many, many male mourners of nearly ayear's stand ex mny have missed eligible ofTers this blessed leap ye^r, on account of the forbidding char acter of their sable snits and love-repulsing bat bHida? We submit to society the propriety of a sliding-scale of funereal habiliments for meu. Nothing can succeed in this world with out advertising, net even grief. Who will take a store on Broadway and open a dry goo^s tribulation shop for "bereaved masculini ty r* An * ttnnpt Agninst Atlanta. [From the Kaleixh Progress.j The Iialton correspondent ol the Atlanta Register avers that the programme of the Abo lition Government of the pending spring cam paign has been fixed beyond doubt, and, ac cording to all indications, will oj-en with a grand demonstration in an attempt against Atlanta. The movement of troons on the part of ihe enemy, and all his preparations, point plainly in that direction. It is known that the concentration of the enemy's forces in the direction of Chattanooga it greater than on the Potomac, and there is more activity there than at the latter point. The foregoing is exactly in accordance with onr vte-we, expreFsed in this paper a few days apo. Whatever appearance of attack upon Lee, or on North Carolina, the enemy may keep up. we canno' rid of the impression or pre sentiment that "On to Atlanta" is now his watchword. We know our opinion in such matter is worth but little, nor won'.d weobtrude it en any one presumptuously, but still eur cpinion if. tbat while the "On to Richmond" is but a feint, the "On to Atlanta" is a reality.
