what absurd and inappropriate beginnings do styles often spring! For example, one of the hats now most worn by young ladies, called the "Kagabas," was the creation of the notorious prostitute, "Cora rearl." In a drunken freak she made a wager that she could mike fashion able the most outre looking hat possible, an I she won her bet by takirg a soft felt hat, hammer, ing it out of its original shape, tricking it on' with a few feathers, and ribbons, and wearing it on the street a day or two, after which it be came all the rage, as she predicted. The short stock sun-umbrella with the enormous knob for the band had its origin in the necessities ol a rheumatic hump-backed old dowager, at one of the European watering places, who in that way combin d for her double use the ?-?nbrella with the octagenarian invalid's walking stick. Now a", the young misses in the L'nited States think they must bare one swinging from their waist belt. The absurdly large tan which young ladies in this country consider essential to a full evening toilet first came into use at a Spanish seaside resort, where it was invented to serve the double purpose of fan and sunshade while lounging on the beach- In proportion as it was appropriate there is it out of place In a parlor; yet it is the rage all the same with the blind followers of fashion, who never think of con ? idering the fitness of things. And men are nearly as big fools as women in the matter of following fashions; though, to their everlasting credit be it said, no gentleman will allow his person and clothing to become dirty and disgusting to keep up with style, as n ost fashionable ladies do in the wearing of long-train walking dresses, greasy false-hair waterfalls, etc. Still, they occasionally suffer themselves to be imposed on outrageously, so far as expense is concerned. For instance, for the last decade it has been considered the proper thing in getting a suit of any kind to have one's coat and vest made from the same piece of goods, whether the trowsers be of the same or different material. As a matter of course, the vest does not wear out nor soil near so quickly as the other two garments, and the result is that nearly every gentleman who makes any pre tension to dress has about a trunk full of these articles partly worn, with no other garments to match. And yet he will go on, season after season, ordering three or four more vests every year, at an expense of from eight to twelve dol lars each, simply because bis tailor tells him that the style requires it. Isn't it so, young man? The Ureal Fire In Bostoa Yesterdny. SOME INLIDKKTS OF TUB CONrLAUUATIOM? LOSS OHK AMD A Ql'ARTKR MILLIONS.

The Congressional excursionists, under the csfpab'e lead of Col. J. W. Dwyer, <of Ohio,) have reachcd G.ilvesf :?n, and have been the re cipients of a wonderfully hearty greeting by the people here. St. Ix>uis ha* been fairly surpassed by this little city ot twenty thousand inhab itants; and New Orleans will find it no easy matter to come up to the demonstration made by Galveston in horor of Us visitors. Galves ton, of coun-e, like all the other places visited by the party, has it# own little ax to grind in welcoming the Congressmen. She wants Con gress to e'ean out her channel, which, before the war. ws? from 20 to 25 feet deep, but is now only about 12X feet. Vessels drawing more than that consequently have to discharge a portion of their cargo into lighters, at au ex pense of irom &2 toM per tan, which the busi ness men of Galveston, who are making very energetic ef.orts to increase their commerce. fir.d a heavy tax. THE MRI'WTH OF OALVK?TOS. Galveston partak'? largely of the unmistake able spirit of industry and enterprise pervading the state. S>nce the close of the war. or dating from 1&;5, the heavy flow o? emigration into Texas has caused a rapid incre;ise in the impu tation and business of this city. The receipts of cotton for the present year are estimated al 350,not) bales, and there has been a large increase in the exports of cattle to New Orleans and Havana, and generally of beef, bides, tal'ow, horses, wool, coiton-seed oil, and oil cake. Gal veston has now of the Morgan New Orleans line of steamers from ten to twelve arrivals per week;a weekly line of large steamers from New York; ai<d a line just stprted direct from Liver I-ool of light draft, designed to go over the bar without lightering. This l.iveri>ool Hue is doiiij; so well that the English stockholders proj>oseUi build enough steamers for a weekly line. Tuere are also se veral steamers plying regularly be tween Galveston and Havana carrying cattle' and there are regular lines of sailing vessels to Northern and Southern |>orts. The recent itn po.tant railroad ojierations in Texas are adding much to the business of Galveston, as well a ? liiickeniiig business activity all through tin state. In no state In the I'nion has there b ei so uiu.h railroad building of late as in Texas aud nowhere have the return^ in the wavot freight or passenger trattic been so immediate: I and this growth must be greatly increa ed and accelerated or. the completion of the net-work of railroads now in progress, which w'llopen up every part oi the vast extent of tertile land in this state and the adjacent Indian territory Galveston may not reap all the ad vantages ol this business growth until her harbor is ini proved; but the business men here show so mirth intelligent activity that 1 do not doubt they will make their harbor what they want it; w ith or without Congressional aid. Galves*an, is may !?? added, has, for a ex ceedingly salubrious position: though it does not altogether escape the yellow fever. ABOIT TEXAS. Entering Northern Texas from the rich but uuoceupied Indian Territory, and traversing the State by the newly opened Kansas arid Texas railroad, we had an opi>ortunity to note the spirit of progress manifested every where, and the manner in which emigration i> pouiing into the S'lte. Seventy-three thousand emigrants passed through Galveston last year and more than two hundred thousand entered the State. Yet such is the immense area ol Texa?, which is large euough to make half a dozen ordinary states, that it is estimated that not more than one-titth of the arable land o' the State is enclosed. Away up in Northern Texas, near the Irdiati country, we fouud a go ahead place called Dallas, that has sprung up almost in a night. It claim? a imputation ot x,000: taxab'e property exceeding 9t,090,0*D>. seven churches, two newspapers, a public li brary. and a street railroad paying a ilividen i of twentv-five per cent. According to the si>okcsmmi for Dallas, who welcomed our patty, they have three crops a year in Dal las county. ??cattle, grain and emigrants;" and referring t > I he active character ot the {lopulation, he sai^ that there was not a State in the I'nion un represented in their community. The same speaker referred in warm term." to the aid done in developing that part ol Texas bv Tom Scott and .lohn W. Forney?tne latter through his publications on the lands and re source s ot Texas. Dallas is the point of inter section of the road from tli-' gull to the lakes, and Tom Scott's '-Texas aud Pacific" rovl. an-, long linesot new freight cars for the T. X P road, and immense stavks of rail and other iu t terial. gave token that the most beniticent <> railroad kings is pressing ou his colossal opera tions with the same force ami tliorougliner away down here on the borders of civilisation in the southwest, that he is ail alon^ the line o. the Atlantic coast, and hack to the Lakes. There is a good deal ?f A SMCCLATtVE RfKH to the towns in northern Texas on the rail roads; aud at Dallas, Sherman, Denisou, au-1 other joints, the present buildings are so inade quate to cover the newly-arrived settlers, that there are whole colonies ot families liviu<* in tents and temporary shauties. Denisou aud Sherman have the appearance of the l?oard an., canvass cities that followed the progress of tli I'nion Pacific road, but Dallas has a more s ib stantial look, with many well built houses. Sit uated in a rich country, it is probable that the Texas "cities" will have a longer life than th mushroom affairs on the Union Pacific rj.i 1 that died out so speedily. CEKTHAL AMD BOCTUERN TEXAS. But despite the flow of emigration to Texa from all quarters, the number of settlers scarcely makes an impression aa yet on the vast prairies of the state. Not only throogh northern Texas, but through the longer-settled regions of central and southern Texas, we whirled all day long by rail through rich plains, scarcely dotted by habitations, and occupied for the most part as feeding ground by immense herds of Texas cattle. The principal business or the engine whistle was to warn cattle, and not men, to clear the track for the locomotive. The increased luxuriance and beauty of the prairie flowers, and the bales of cotton piled on the station platforms, told that we were travel ing rapidly couth; and near Houston the fra grant magnolia, with Its contrast of white and green, took the shape of great forest trees. Harris county, in which Houston Is situated, is perhaps the most thickly settled of any portion of the state, and yet there are thousands of acres in this district unoccupied and for sale in the immediate vicinity of the five railroads intersecting at Houston, from S3 to 10 per acre. Somewhat further away from the rail roads, or from the principal cities, there is any quantity to be got at from fifty cents (through state scrip) per acre to 91.80. Houston on toe Bayou Buffalo emptying into Galveston bay, claims to be at the head of navigation, and expects to be something of a place hereafter. There were more alligators than steamboats in the bayou, however, as we passed, and the future of Hoaston will come to her doubtless rather from her railroad facilities than from her navigable waters. Houston has rather an attractive appearance however, embowered in oleanders and (magnolias, and withal a look of business progress. From Houston to Galves ton the country has mnch the same unocouplcd look seea above, through this may be accounted for by the tact thai the land grows poorer near the ooast. it was rather a tedious process to teach Galveston with our heavy train of Poilman rteeperso verthe two mifcsof trestle work to the island, bnt all Galveston w?s out to wel come us on reaching there, and the oordlal re ception, soon pat oat ef mind all the minor dis comforts of continuous rail traveling.
