r mi ■ - .. ifi -MCI saw* _ I.hiit from ilie Nulioa»l C'opital* (Correspondence ol t c Press.) Washinuton, D. C., Jan. 13, 1867. A FI15LI> 1>AY IN THE CAPITOL. One’s imagination fails to realize the great Issues decided and momentuous result* im pending, upon the questions now at Sssu» in this arena. The past two weeks have teemed with pregnant issues—issues which are to grow beyond the calculation of those at work upon them. Emerson says that ‘ To-day is a king in disguise.” The present ones do not wear their loyalty disguised but in the full light of the nineteenth century’s noontide, assert their Tight to rule most regally. Take, as an exam pile, the incidents which have transpired to-day ■within the Capitol walls. First then we wend «>uv way to the old Senate Chamber in the old est portion of the building, now used as the TT. S. Supreme Court Iioom. It was crowded by listeners, inside and out side the bar. Usually, a half-dozen curious la dies, their escorts, one or two interested par ties, a stray reporter, five or six judges, about the same number of officers of the court, and a tew lawyers comprise the attendance. To-day however every judge was on tho bench; the bar was out in lull ranks, and every available space was occupied by spectator. One notice able fact was tho presence of the indefatigable reporters, who pencil and note book in hand were ready to obtain an outline of the impor tant opinion. This is tile first time that this venerable body has allowed that modern Icon oclast—tho reporter—to invade its sacred pre cincts. Inside tho bar were mauy distinguish able and distinguished persons. Noticeable ifi the crowd was the strong and remarkable face of Ben Butler, the outlines of which in tlieir rapacious vigor make one think of a bald eagle. Here is the spare, tall form of the Attorney General, with its mingled look ol surface res pectability and acute intellect—a sort of cross between ltombey and Emerson. Mr. Stanbe ry makes one think of the latter it one could liavo supposed tho Concord philosopher to have become a conservative politician and real es tate lawyer. A marked face, form and head is that of Caleb Cushing, with look of power and disappointment. The pleasantest face, not on ly because of its intellectual expression, but far more from the manly morality and purpose visible therein,is that of the Assistant Attorney General, -Mr. Ashton, one of the most able law yers of his age in the Union. There were more remarkable faces, but I pass them by. The occasion of the unwonted crowd was the delivery of the opinions of the Court, ma jority and minority, on the constitutionality of the test oath, both that required ''y the nation and that required in Missouri. Justice Fields of California read tho views of the majority; Justice Davis that of the minority. The Court was divided by Justices Wayne, Grier, Clif ford, Nelson and Fields pronouncing against the oath, and the Chief Justice , with Associ ates Davis, Swayne and Millerconcurring, in support of its constitutionality. It seems a strange anomaly to a listener, who is alive to the results of such action, to believe that it was designed that this body of nine ven erable and able men should hold the safety of the nation m its hands. It certainly was nev er intended that the Supremo Court was to de cide political questions. If so, it must inevita bly-absorb all the tunctions ot government. 1 coilluBs lu nut ueiu{; uiopuauu iaj revauuco the four very aged gentlemen, who crept out of their shells to interpret the Constitution in the interests of retroaction, but I have far less for the middle aged, obstinate looking Californian who gavejliis vote against the Nation’s right to protect itself. One tiling is certain. The nation will protect itself against Treason whatever stands in tho way. It' it is Supreme Court, so much tho worse lor it. If the Constitution, then its meaning mast be stretched to give due effect to the Teopio’s purpose. LOAN OK MISSOURI AND THE ASSASSINATION OF Mil. LINCOLN. The House of Representatives witnessed a scene of a different cliaracter. The States were called on resolutions. When Missouri was early re ached, the business in order was the consideration of Gen. Loan’s very comprehen sive resolution on the impeachment. Debate being in order, Gen. Loan took the floor. Loan is Southern horn, has lived nearly all his man hood in Mo., aud is truly native to the border manner of plain speaking. He has been a very faithful Unionist^!! active soldier,and is withal a man of considerable ability. I should not sup pose him a reckless though he is a very deter mined man. Above tho iuiddlo stature, ho is bro.ul shouldered and deep chested. His head is large, forehead square, about which rises a considerable mass of disorderly iron gray hair. His eyes are a dark gray, with a smoul dering light in them. The uose is an ugly and puy-uacious one, while the mouth has a very stem aud vice like habit ofclosing which gives him a peculiarly combative expression. His speech created a profound, almost startling im pression. It in substance denounced Andrew Johnson as a party to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. It distinctly charged that the President was receiving the reward and earning the wages of the rebellion that lifted him into his high place. There was no mincing of expression, aud the manner in which the speaker showed how the rebellion was being restor ed through Mr. Johnson to political pow er alter unparalleled defeat in the Held, was in itself a remarkable thing, productive of start ling eulminative effect. Mr. Hall, of New York, demanded that the Clerk record the spoaker’s words on the ground that it was a grave accusation aud in contempt of the Executive authority. Tho Chair ruled that the poiut of order could not he &ustained,as the Representative from Missouri was speaking to niesolutiou charging “high crimes and mis demeanors” aud was not therefore in contempt in enunciating the same. Will tiler the Mi souriau was unwise or oth erwise in thus boldly attacking and accusing Mr. Johnson, is one thing, hut it is certain that he only speaks out the thought aud suspicion which dwells in the breasts of a majority ot the House, Loan is a conscientious man. What he says should therefore he heeded. It is quite certain that if there was as curious a chain of • circumstantial evidence existing against any unknown Southern man as there is against Mr. Johnson, that man would have been hung long since for complicity with the assassination, or be like Spangler, serving out a life imprison ment with much less evidence of any guilty complicity. The excitement was very great. The resolution is still undisposed of, and will again give some oue a reason for speaking. ADMISSION OK NEBRASKA. Nearly the balauce ot the day was given to tho discussion of this bill. The following isthc chief feature: lie. it further enacted, That this act shall take effect with the fundamental and perpetual con dition that within said State of Nebraska there shall lie no abridgement or denial of the exer cise of the elective franchise or of any other right to tiny person by reason of race or color, excepting Indians not taxed. One portion of the Republicans desire to send this hack for ratification or rejection by the people. Another portion,like Bingham, of Ohio, will vote for it anyhow, because they want the State in, and regard the clause as of no effect. Dawes, Judge Wilson and others will go against it. Shclabarger took ground in favor of the hill and amendatory clause, on the ground that a State will consider itself at least morally hound to obey the obligation. Mr. Bingham in his usual vehement, denun ciatory, eloquent hut arrogant style, took the broadest State Rights grounds on the suffrage. States had full control over the question. Gen. Banks closed the debate on the ques tion, and never spoke with greater effect orin finer style. His position claimed the entire con trol within the purview of the constitution to dictate terms of admission. He thought the amendment, therefore, of force. He voted for admission because we needed the additional strength, in this the nation’s hour of supreme peril. He Briid the Courts could not decide be tween Congress and an applying State, wheth er formed nut of territory or conquered from rebellion. If they could do that,Congress might as well retire—surrender at once. He held that if after admission Tennessee had again re-es-, tabUshed the enemies of this Union in power that Congress could turn out the representa tives and senators by force to see that the con ditions were complied with. Spectator. (iloomjr Forebodings. The Loudon Times, in its review of the year 18G0, begins with these somewhat remarkable admissions: A gloomy, eventful aud ominous year closes to-day in England. A long season of prosper ous tranquility has been interrupted by politi cal agitation, by commercial disturbance, and by consciousness of the relative inefficiency of the national armaments, and of a propor tionally declining or suspended influence in the councils of the world. The burden of the Times’ forebodings is Re form I Reform 1 The state of the law, and tho dead lock in the courts; the condition of the railways, aud the wreck ot mercantile credit: education, or the want id it; the dissensions in tho church: the inadequacy of our armaments; Fenian threats, American difficulties, European com plications, and a good many other sublets dif ffcult enough, are trifles and playthings com pared with reform. b . —Joshua Converse, of Woburn, Mass., will he 103 years old on the 20tli iust.

At a reception given by the King to a depu tation from the Italian Parliament, His Maj esty remarked that the “New Year remind* Italians that they have now secured the inde- ' pehdence of their country, and with it an im- 1 provemeut in the civil administration, and in creased publie prosperity. During the period of peace upon which we are entering, we shall not cease to devote our attention to the army. The army is not only necessary for the preser vation ot that independence, which it so great ly contributed to acquire, but is in itself a sol id guarantee fur internal security, and an ele ment of moral unity, and of that civil training which renders disciplined nations strong and capable of accomplishing great deeds.” MANIFESTO OF THE “COMMITTEE OF ACTION.” ; It is not only Mazzini who preaches action to the Roman people. The Italian papers pub lish the following manifesto, copies of which, printed by the Republican clandestine press, covered the walls of Rome on Dec. 16: Romans! The French banner is furled; the French army has quitted Italy. The shield that lor seventeen years has protected our fero cious and incapable government is withdrawn. A few Papal bravos and a rabble rout*of for eigners cauuot bold in check the people which repulsed the army of Oudinot from their walls on the 30th of April, 1849. All true Liberals feel the necessity of rallying our forces for the purpose of uniting in one supreme unanimous effort. We are on the watch for the opportune moment for insurrection.aiHl preparing the elements of victory. Uutil that moment ar rives, be upon your guard against all unknown agitators, and. avoid all tumult or disorder, winch.might be a snare laid for yon by your en emies. In the meantime prepare calmly and resolutely for battle; when the hour for deliv erance sounds, we will call you to arms. Long lire tree Rome, the capital of Italy. . The Committee of Action. Dec. 1C, I860. THE ITALIAN SENATE ON THE HOMAN QUESTION. The address of the Italian Senate in reply to the speech from the throne was voted on Dec. 28. Like the speeeh of the King, it avoids speaking of the annexation of Rome, it mere ly says: Augmented, by the conclusion of peace, by illustrious provinces she so greatly desired, and by formidable defences, Italy presses around your throne while awaiting that agree ment between Church and State of which your Mqjesty has spoken,and which is the wish and the hope not only of the Italians, but of all the Catholic world, and which must be car ried out in such a manner that the Church,tru ly free and independent in its sublime sphere, does not afford any impediment to the State in the development of its legitimate aspirations. This will be the seal of our greatness and the starting-point of a revival of religious feeling, in case—possibly owing to the ardor of past struggles—it may anywhere have tallcn off The Eastern Question. General Garibaldi has addressed to a friend near London a letter upon the present aspects of the Eastern question, in which he adminis ters a severe but just rebuko to the Machiavel lian policy of the English government. The letter is dated at Caprera, Dec. 18. Wo give the following characteristic passage: That I love England with the affection of a son you cannot doubt, and that it is over the de sire of my heart to see her in the first rank among nations is equally certain; but to caress the errors of her Ministers—to that Icannot lend myself. X repeat, therefore, to your statesmen that which 1 have stated to our own: Do well, and you will receive praise; hut to lavish praise on those who do evil is servile adulation, and 1 never flatter. In the war of giants waged by ibugiami ajjaiuoi me x n»i xsiuperor, x searcn in the pages of those histories of your country which narrate it for one single expression of condemnation at the expenditure of millions of lives and millions of money sacrificed to com bat one despotism .indeed, but certainly to sus tain another less exacting. Who, however, on the other hand, will not confess, with me, that the services rendered by England to the cause of human progress have been immense ? And 1 in particular bear testimony to the benefits received from you by Italy in 18U0, without which we should now be exulting in the em brace of every member of the Itahun family._ But when 1 see the Government of this my adopted country allied with Austria and with Turkey, I must tell you the truth, namely, that I inhale the fumes of a charnel-house, which all the national vitality may be unable to dispel, if Great Britain places herself in contact with these dead corpses. X would rather see her using her power and her influence to support those oppressed nationalities at pres ent going to decay in the putrid atmosphere of despotism, but who, remaining constant to their desire ot purifying themselves, must certainly rise one uay or auother to their natural places in the fraternity of free nations. Fabbagut and Our Naval Commanders —We have received s ofanew' historical and biographical work, bearing the above title, which is soon to de issued from the publishing house of E. B. Treat & Co., New York. It is from the pon of Hon. J. T. Headley, author of “Washington and his Generals," “Napoleon and his Marshals,” etc., books which have had an extended sale, and which are ex tremely popular among a large class of readers. The present is intended to iorm a companion volume to Headley’s “Grant and Sherman,” and it will comprise narratives of the early life and public services of the promfhent naval commanders who with Grant, Sherman and their Generals brought to a triumphant close the war against the great rebellion. The au‘ thor has been aided in his work by documents and official matter furnished directly by the of ficers or their iriends, which places the authen ticity of the work beyond a doubt. This work, which is to be sold only by sub scription, will be comprised in one large octa vo volume of nearly six buudred pages. It will be illustrated by eighteen steel engraved por traits of prominent naval officers, and four full pago battle scenes from new and original designs. It is printed on good paper, from large, clear type, and furnished to subscribers at a low rate. Agents are wanted to canvass for the sale of the above work. Address Geo. H. Blake, Gen eral Agent for Maine and New Brunswick, Box 827, Portland, Me. Poking Fuu. The Paris Figaro of December 21, has the following: All tlie newspapers have said that an Amer ican composer, well known at Boston,—Mr. Gfeeder,- was occupied iu setting the Consti tution ot the United States to music. This adaptation has just been given in public. The pertormance lasted eight hours. Our corres pondent gives us the lollowing curious partic ulars iu regard to this strange music: The preamble to the Constitution is a grand and lmyestic recitative weii sustained by alto and coutra-basso voices. The 1st article is written lor a tenor voice. Other articles are written, some for basso, some for soprano, some for bari tone. At the end of each article the recitative bi^he preamble is taken up again iu chorus. M. Grcecler has betrayed his opinions and has outdone himself in the article relating to State rights. This is written in a minor key for base and tenor, and there is a struggle of voices and instruments which might make the author of Xaunhauscr jealous. The tenor who appears to sustain the doctrine of State rights, is eventually overcome by the bass, whilst the small flutes which support the tenor wage tierce war with the trombones and bass ions, the auxiliaries of the bass. The violins, lost und irigirteiied, do the accompaniameut in treinulo and pizzicati. Finally the tenor and the flutes yield to the heavier instruments,and the return of peace is celebrated by the violins in slow arpeggio. The constitutional amend ments arc treated as fugues, and serve as in troduction to a formidable finale, in which the base drum and the tom-tom play important roles. Did not Jefferson say the Constitution of the United States was an admirable symphony? TnE Prussian General von Pfuel, lately deceased, at a very advanced age, was ono of the few remaining officers who fought under Bluchcr at Mont St. Jean and Waterloo, and played a conspicuous part in the military and diplomatic liistory of Prussia during tlie war with the First French Empire. More than ten years ago lie made a present of his correspond ence, diaries and memoirs to his friend, Herr Varnhagen von Ense, but with the express condition that he should not publish them till alter his (the General’s) death. But it so hap pened that Varnhagen died first, and his own memoirs have been published by his niece, a Miss Ludmilla Assing, an authoress well known in Germany, but of a questionable rep utation on the score of discretion, as she has been more than once in conflict with the au thorities oi many German Slates, but chiefly for publishing what purported to be the private correspondence between King Frederick Wil liam the Third (the father of lus present Majes ty) and her late uufile, Varnhagen von Ense, winch created such ascaudal tuat the sale of the work was-aud still is-prohibited in 1 russia, and she herself was obliged to remove as quickly as possible, to escape the conse quences, and found an asylum in free Switzer land. i he duty of editiug the memoirs and correspondence of the late General von Pfuel will now devolve on Ibis lady, and, il she does not exercise a greater amount of discretion than oil iormer similar occasions, the public may expect many piquant revelations of events that occurred half a century ago, and may now be deemed a matter of history. Beady for any Arrangement. A Flori da man, who was a rebel—rather more sincere, he thinks, than many other rebels—and is now prepared for such treatment as his conquerors may mete out to him, writes to the Springfield Be publican: We aTe wagging along here quietly; and, so far as 1 can .judge, no one, excepting the old politicians who never did anything hut work for patty spoils, cares anything about politics. I think ii majority would he pleased with the territorial arrangement. For my part, 1 don’t care what they do with this State Thev inav I call it a Territory, an island, or a torch-light | procession—it’s all the same to me I never troubled myself with voting, and for the future will let aDy one vote for me who chooses. Suspicions of Foul Play.—A private letter from Bethel informs us that a coroner’s inquest is being held there to-day on the body of a lady of Portland, who died suddenly not long since, and was taken to Bethel for interment. Some thing aroused the suspicions ol her friends that her death was caused by poison; hence the in vestigation. A number of physicians are in attonuance, some of whom are from this oity.

Wednesday.—The Court did a pretty good busi ness in the way ol collecting fines from liquor deal ers, no less than eight stepping up and paying $22.26 each, as follows: A. G. Cook, Hugh Kelley, Michael Haley, Abner Paine. John McMerriman, John Wall, Henry J. McGiinchy, and Timothy Hallahan. Two lots of liquors and ales, seized on the premises of John Bradley and P. H. and James Bradley, were declared forfeited to the use of the city, no person ap pearing to claim the same. Henry Scot* and Oriu Walker, for breaking and en tering the shops at West Gorham and Morrill’s Cor ner, were committed to jail in delimit of sureties in the sum of $500 each, on each complaint, for their appearance at the March term of the Supremo Judi cial Court. George Sanford, for receiving goods stolen from the above mentioned shops, was held in the sum of $500 for his appearance at the March term of the Supreme Judicial Court. Mary McNulty for larceny of the skirt of a dress as mentioned in the Press of yesterday, was sentenc ed to 60 days in the County Jail. The case of Gen. Thomas, for last driving In the streets, was taken up. As the evidence was not very clear, the Judge ordered the defendant to be dis charged. The case of Hon. L. D. M. Sweat, for fast driving in the streets, was farther coutined. Personal.—We learn from the Transcript that the ninety-fifth birthday of our venerable fellow-citizen, Mr. Elias Thomas, was celebra ted by a large family party at his residence, on Monday last. His two sisters, Mrs. Happy Morse and Miss Betsey Thomas, aged respect ively ninety-seven and ninety-three, and their cousin, Mrs. Gates, an octogenarian, joined in the festivities of the occasion. With the ex ception of the blindness of Mr. Thomas, all of these aged people are in the full possession ol their faculties, and they are all in excellent health and spirits, enjoying life with the zest of youth. Mr. Thomas and his elder sister re member distinctly the first burning of Port land by Mowatt in 1775, at which time they were carried to Westbrook for safety, just be fore the bombardment commenced; in the late fire they were again made homeless for a time The younger er sister is a marvel of sprightli ness; her step is as elastic as it could have been three-quarters of a century ago, and her conversation full of youthful wit and sparkle. In the presence of aged people like these, able to enjoy and to communicate the highest pleasures of social intercourse, one loses the dread of extreme old age; for in their experi ence we see the comfort and usefulness that may attend the long evening ot a well- spent life. Clocks, See.—Our readers are invited to look into the beautifully arranged establishment of Messrs. Lowell Se Senter, in the Cumberland National Bank building, Exchange street, which has been fitted up expressly for the sale of nautical instruments, clocks, spectacles, stereoscopic instruments and views, &c. This firm was the first to re-occupy their old place ot business on that street, and their arrange ment for having another store on the corner of Congress and Brown streets for the sale of silver ware, &c., is a most excellent one. It will be noticed by their advertisement thi9 morning that they are prepared to ftirnish the public with clocks of every description, and every one that wants a clock can be suited. They have a few of the sets of photographic views of the city as it appeared in various pla ces, after the great fire. Every family that can afford it should purchase a set of these views, and one of the stereopticons. Mains Flour. — Messrs. Charles Bailey, Franklin, Crawford and Andrew P. Morgan have taken the mills at South Paris, formerly carried on by Messrs. George W. Woodman Se Co., and have formed a copartnership under the name of the Paris Flouring Company.— The mills are under the superintendence of Mr. Bailey, who was a partner in the former firm, and are now turning out one hundred barrels per day of the best quality of flour, as none but the best of wheat is used in the man ufacture. We have tried the flour and find it to be of a superior quality. The business quarters of the firm in this city are, as will be seen by their advertisement on the first page, at No. 143 Commercial street, where specimens of the flour may be seen and purchases made. Dry Goons, &c.—The sale of dry goods at Patten & Co.’s Tooms, Plum street, will con tinue in the forenoons at private sale, and in the afternoons at auction. We noticed yester day a cart-load of blankets going through the streets, which had been purchased at this auc tion to be distributed among the poor, by Rev Mr. Tuckerman. The committee in reference to the Dexter & Newport Railroad, consisting of the following gentlemen, I. Washburn, Jr., Charles H. Fling, J. H. Drummond, H. J. Libby, Wm. Decring, Frederick Davis. John True, Thomas E. Twitchell, Charles E. Jose, W. W. Harris and M. G. Palmer, are requested to meet at the of fice of the Collector of Customs at 10 o’clock this day. There will be a special meeting of the Irish American Relief Association on Friday eve ning, January 18th, 1807, at half past seven o’clock, at their new hall. Business of impor tance will come before the meeting and a full attendance is requested. James Cunningham, Sec. Jan. 17—2t. Arrival of the Peruvian.—Steamship Peruvian, Capt. Ballantine, from Liverpool 3d and Londonderry 4th inst., arrived at this port yesterday forenoon, bringing seven cabin and seventy-five steerage passengers and a large cargo. We are indebted to Mr. Glover, Purser of the vessel for files of papers. Grand Ball.—The tenth annual Ball of Portland Associates Ex-5’8, will come off this evening at Mechanics’ Hall. Arrangements have been made to render this affair more splen did than usual. A few tickets are left for sale, and those who wish to enjoy a good time should secure them at once. Personal.—We notice that our townsman, George Payson, Esq., is associated with Hon. Isaac N. Arnold, formerly member of Con gress, and C. A. Gregory, Esq., in the practice of law at Chicago, 111. The firm is prononneed by the Chicago press to be an able one. Liquor Seizures,—The Deputy Marshals, yesterday seized small quantities of liquor in the shop kept by John Halahan on York street, and that kept by James Wood on Danforth street Dr. Chaussier’s Empress is an innocent preparation for restoring and preserving the hair in a clean and healthy state, imparting to it a beautiful gloss.

Those who use it refuse all others. jan7dlawtf The ladies will find a beautiful assortment of real rubber sleeve buttons, bracelets and pins at Davis Se Co.’s. See advertisement of board wanted. —The oldest book in New England is owned by a Catholic clergyman in Worcester, Mass. Its title is “Pantheologia,” and it was printed in 1470, twenty years before the discovery of America by Columbus. Its author was the Rev. Dorn Rainer, a Dominican of Pisca, Vice Chancellor of the Roman Caurch and Bishop of Maguelon. He died in 1249. It is a ponder ous volume, bound in boards half an inch thick, covered with leather aud protected by heavy brass knobs and clasps. It is printed in “block letter,” and is in an excellent state of preservation. THE STATE. —The Station housi of the Maine Central Railroad at Monmouth Centre is described by the Farmer as a model. “There is an air of neatness, with its little adjacent rooms all cleanly and convenient, besides a projecting roof, to keep off the rain when getting in and out of the cars. The water tank is filled by a force pump, carried by a water wheel set in the bed of a little stream, so that any amount of water can always be had.” —The Maine Farmer warmly seconds the proposition so ably advocated by Mr. Walter Wells in the columns of this paper for a survey of the various waters of the State, and the pub lication of such a report as will place our great manufacturing facilities properly before the public. Governor Chamberlain's recommenda tion in the same direction is most judicious, and we trust this important matter will not be suffered to drop, —A boy coasting on the sidewalk in Lewis ton, slid nuder a loaded dirt-cart Monday after noon. One of the wheels passed directly over his neck, and he was badly crushed; but not killed, as we learn from the Journal. —In noticing the fact that the consecration oiRev. Dr. Neeley, the new Bishop of the Di ocese of Maine, would probably occur on the 25th inst., the New York Times says: “The Doctor will go into a rough country, as imprac ticable as many of our smaller Western terri tories; and his city friends, who are almost numberless, are anxious to make bis departure the occasion of some substantial token of their appreciation of his faithful and manifold la bors." We are happy to learn that the Bishop’s friends esteem him so highly, but we beg to in form them that wolves are not numerous in Portland this year, and that we get a mail from New York occasionally, just to keep us in connection with the civilized world. —The new passenger depot at Augusta was opened for use on Monday. The building is t>f brick, two stories of graceful architecture, and is eighty-six feet long; its wings shelter a floor ing for the accommodation of passergers of two hundred and sixty feet in length. There is an easy approach on all sides and ends of the en tire line of flooring. At each end there is a double jack-knife tabling, which opens and shuts, for the accommodation of baggage deliv ery. • ■ Paris Fashions.—A recent letter from Paris says: The most characteristic features of the pres ent fashions certainly are the diminished size of the crinolines—if worn at all—and the slim ness given to the appearance round the hips.— The dress is excessively gorod, quite tight in front, and gradually swelling out at the lower part, till forming a sharp-pointed train. These are intending for evening toilettes, and the fashion is more and more gaining ground oi wearing, for out-of-donr wear, short skirts, over a petticoat either similiar to the upper me, or forming acontrast. In the latter case the body answers to the petticoat, ths casaque, made en sac, being the same as the dress. Cotton vel vets, called velveteens, are frequently made in this way, and are much worn. Black is more fashionable than ever, and when trimmed with colors and a profusion of jet, is now thought dressy enough for evening wear. A Southern Candidate’s Platform.—Ja cob Slovis, a candidate lor Congress from Ala ba, puts forth a funny platform: You hav a rite to no the prinsipuls that will guvern my kongreshnul karrer. I am not the pyrson to konse e or equiverkait. My prinsi puls are those of the American Egul, which, whar the karkus is, oilers gethured togethur.— In relashun to the niggur, I exsept the situa tion. Slavery is deu, and so will the niggurs be befor long. I am in iavur oi a general am nesty to all the 20,UUO doller men, sein they had nothing to do with the bringin on the war, or iitin it after it was brot. Loath of these wag did by the poor men; but those of that class who made nothin by tho war 1 think sufll shuntly punished, and those who did ort to be parduued tor getting rich at the expense of the rebellyun.

The London correspondent of the Minerve of Quebec, in a recent letter, alter mention ing that the Imperial Parliment was expected to meet on the 5th of Febuary, says:— This date you will perceive, is somewhat distant, and 1 have reason to believe that con federation cannot be finally adopted by Parli ment before the lapse of three or four months. According to this reckoning, confederation will not be proclaimed in Canada until tbe month of May. Several important questions will come up lor discussion at the opening of Parliment, and two of these which cannot be postponed— Parlimeutary Befotm and Fenian ism—will be apt to take precedence of the Confederation scheme. —A. Bonnet committed suicide in blew Or leans because he “had but little interest in the life around him.” That Bonnet was out of fashion. —It is suggested that Congress ought to go to Ingersoli’s for a little reconstruction. In gersoll trains his waiters never to “pass” things “over the head” of anybody. SPECIAL NOTICES. The Old Established Boot and Shoe Store o 1 T. E.
