On Saturday evening lest, there was e brilliant gather ing <>f our country men and fair countrywomen at tbo legation, and nothing could exceed the kinduees and amiability with which they were received by the Minis ter and Mrs and Miss Dix. The good old custom of regular Buurday evening receptions for the yeung peo ple, the pleasant accompaniment* of music and dancing, has been revived by the family of the new Mmister. Colonel John Hav.

It is supposed, will for the Drat time "aastsi" at one of the Court bulla Last week I preached e homily against the almost onl varaal desire of Americans, nnon arriving in Paris, to be presented to the Emperor and Empress, sad to enjoy the music and the show at a grand Court ball. Alas! 1 fear I am not the only preacher who practically illustrates the motto, ??Do as 1 tell you, not as I do.'' The day after I had given ruch good counsel end advice, a card nearly a foot square was delivered to me by my concwrpc, aad upon breakiog the seal I found It to bo an Invitation ?e "passer la noire#'' at the Tnileries to-morrow evening.

Unfortunate holders or lottery stock may, per tape, derive some comfort for their disappointment, from the fact that the winner of this large sura (John E.

Tbla idea Is rapidly gaining far or, and it has beam sug gested that a mass indignation meeting of the disap pointed ticket holders should be bald, to demand what tbey consider to bo their joat rights, and to compel the lattery managers to ma hi a fresh drawing, inrnatia or tn nirimy. In answer to all ikh the clerks at the headquarter* of tbo enterprise reply that tbo drawing was not made by the managers, bat under the special auparvtakm of the Police Commissioners, and nader circumstances which can leave no doubt npou tbo mind of am impartial man tbat it was uquitably conducted. At to the idea tbat a boy could have boon cue coaled in the wbael, it is alleged tbat such a thing waa Impossible. Taking lata account the thousands of rovctntiono made by it, tbo poor boy moot infallibly bays ondurod tortares yet more horrible than thooe of tbo fabled Ixion, and have infallibly perished. cimoci omctn. Many of tbo objectintm raised against tbo tottery managers are undoubtedly trivial. Although tbey might certainly have adopted some means of indicating more plainly their exact whereabouts, the reason Tar the re moval from the old office, waa probably somewhat baiter tbaa tbat Imputed to them by one of their visitors, " in ordor that they might be nearer the boat restaurants." One lady, however, derived a great deal of eomfort from their change of quarters.

NUT IS AWXRDDie CRIBM. The long delay which will lake place before the prises will be finally distributed excites great discontent. Whether it be una voidable or not. of course it must be for the managers themselves to determine. Bat people are naturally annoyed to learn that the smaller their prize the longer they will have to wait for it A draw ing for the vast number of small prises is of course use less, but ia agreeing to dispense with U and save trouble the ticket-holders hoped tbat the whole aflhir might thus be com rioted within a few days. "If the presents are really all purchased why don't tbey give thorn to us," io tbo idea whioh nearly every oae who visited the office yesterday asked bis fellow-unfortunate.
