At the request of Dr. A. Y. P.

(>arnctt..J, C. Hall, I'riukard. and A-hlord, and two surgical ex|>erts from the armv medical museum, l>rs. Schafler and Lamb, who per formed the autopsy. The examination devel oped the fact that the disease was an extended cancer on the posterior i>ortion of the stoma eh, lrom which the patient has been suffering prob ably for the past three years or more. All the other organs of the body were found to be in a healthy state, with some slight deviation trom a normal condition of the system. The results confirmed the opinion held by Dr. Garnett as to the nature of the disease. THE BODY has been embalmed, and is to be placed bv Mr. U. W.

'J he important openings ol the ason now take place in April,either at the close ot Lent or the bcgiKiing of Kaster. Display.-of lnilii ncry are sometimes made a week or two pre vious, as there is additional desire to w ear new bonnets uj-on Easter Sunday; but bonnets?or hats, for there ie only the dittercnce of a nam. between them?are now but a secondary con sideration; the co.-tume is the main thing, an I until this is decided upon it :s u.fiieaU to sclect the minor articles. Many oi the large houses have now three dis tinct rooms, only one of v.hicli?even on open ing dav?is free" to the general public. The second"is visited bv the knowing and curiou oncs, and the third by known customers and those who are specially invited. The tirst or large show-room contains what may be termed general styles for in and out-door "wear, walk uig-dresses, morning-dresses, suits and cos tumes ot average material aud quality. The second contains special designs in costume*, dinner-dresses, and the like; embroidered dresses, which require to be kept partially cov ered, and must upon no account be touched; for though "do not handle"' is placarded ujkjii every dress in the public exhibition room, yet almost everv woman will touch iu spite ol the prohibi tion;"and delicate color* and textures sutler in same pro|<ortiou as the nerves of a touchy President after a day's hand-shaking. From the third or inner sanction sanctorum the day light is excluded, and innumerable gas-jets light up brilliantly, lay figures arrayed in the costliest and most beantitul evening robes, ewcii one i>erfect in every detail. Out of the whole collection no two will be found alike: all are distinctlv and distinctively different: and when one is sold, no ?the1- is modelled precisely upon the same design. The prices of these "dresses vary from three hundred aud titty to oue thou sand dollars; and when one considers the dirti culty of getting up exclusive designs, ami the amount of costly lace and gther material u the cost seems moderate. KKWEST TOILETTES. For the benefit of my readers 1 will try to re call some of the freshest of the designs recently exhibited. And tirst it must be premised that all the newest and prettiest costumes, jackets, polonaises aud mautles, are trimmed the- entire length of the back. Mantles simulate various kinds of hooils, and are ornamented with lace iu spirals, rich passementeries, watered ribbon, iu loops and ends, and mis?iVe cords, testooued it xd finished with handsome tasseIs. Bcautit ul eostumesof unbleached batwte have bioad embroidered bands down the back and front ol the polonaise. the lower edge being fin ished with linen lace or fringe. The flounced fck rt is headed with narrow embroidered baud-. Three uarrow or graduated flounces are now more fashionable than one deep one, where a polonaise or an upper skirt is used, ami these are gathered or side pleated. Very novel morn ing costumes are composed of foulard aud ba tiste. The foulard is dark biue. spotted with white, and forms a polou iise, which is orna mented with a broad band of batiste uvwn the j back, buttoned ever with immense buttons covered with batiste, but embroidered iu the centres with the blue and eau ot the foulard and batiste. The skirl ls of baUsfe, kilt ideated down the entire trout, and finished at the back with a deep side-ideating, headed with an em broidered band of batiste matching the outtous. The culls, rolling collar and jKickets of the po lonaise are composed of batiste, ornamented with buttons only. It isonlv multiplying word. without use to attempt description of the complicated dinner and evening toilets, as no one erer tries to make such a dress tor themselves, or would succeed if they did. It requires an experienced artiste to decide be tween bouillonces and ruches and pleating?, to arrange the draperv, the ;*>?/, and the side sashes, to make a rub or a traise that will look as If cut from a picture, and combine the colois and shakes in a manner as daring and original as the styles of the period warrant. Moreover, it requires a man's recklessness to cut op costly material at the rate required; no woman ever did it of her own free will; it would break her heart. I must, however, mention one dress ot verv rich black gros grain, which was pleated all the way down, and spread oat into along pompadour, fan-shaped train. Over the front i part of the dreas was a straight tunic of blaek crept de chine, embroidered with silk and tine cut Jet< and bordered with wide lace. This was looped up on one side with superb orna ments, of lace, silk and paasimenterie, forming a "satchel" and sash ends. Two bodies accom panied this dress, one high and one low. A pretty dress is of pearl gray silk serge and bin* foulard. The hist skirt u trimmed with pleated flounces headed with ruches, all of serge. The second skirt to scolloped out round the edge over a pleating of the foulard, which is placed beneath, so as to project slightly beyond the edge of the scollops, and is eat la one. Prince** tasnion, with a high boddice. All its distinction derived from the manner of looping, and the arrangement of a vsK wida saah of blue foulard, brocaded upon the edge in colors and bordered with fringe. The most elegant evening ain dinner toilettes are made with trained skirts, with a small peuf at the back, trimmed front, and no overskirt. Aa embroidered, scarf-like apron is often added, which forms a side sasli upon the left of the skirt. FLA1K*B** or THK PIRIOn.

The new gloves are plain, stitched in the shade of the kid, aud cut long ujion the wrist, where they are fastened with two or more small giit button's. Ladies w ith any pretension to fashion, will not wear gloves less than three buttoned upon the street, while six is the usual number for evening wear; and indeed uiauv re turning from abroad, bring with them gloves fastened with buttons, a source ot pride al most as treat, as that formerly felt in the length of the train; for every experienced woman knows that the buttoned gloves cannot l?e ] bought out of Paris. An attempt is regular!y maoe to revive black lace mitts, but in thi* country it is a decided failure. American women are fhrtldioot as to their hands, and they are perfectly awaie that nothing preserves their softness and beauty so well as kid, 01 so entirely conceals any defects. There is, however,a very nice English lisle-thread glove, which has been much used as a summer travelling and morning glove of late vears. It is a fine as silk, per fectly made and fitted, and Is sewed and finis'uod in every respect like a kid glove, but is much cooler and more pleasant to wear, especially by those who have warm hands.
