NOT d ON.DRESS. A revival of the "first Empire" dress is pVoheslad to take place during the coming seems, and at a recent fashion show several e'sBmpire" gowns were to be seen. "First eimplre" dresses of the present day are a maodifloa?tlo of those worn by the ladles of the Court of Napoleon L of ranoue In the early part of the present esatary.. We have been solong accustomed to the graceful lines of the esthetia style of dress, tha6simpiro gowns do not strike us as easing'juaat now, though we shall soon doubtless fnd ourselves admiring the short walated bodies and 'the full skirt and sash that are the leading characteristics of 'E?mpire" dressing. An empire gown has a very short bodioe, out round or square at the eeok, and a skirt in full folds, caught by.a deep full sash, the ends of which hang hifront ; the skirt is sometimes draped in' folds in front, and has a long plaited back, with a small steel and bustle. An empire bonnet, that is to be worn with such a "gown, has a flat cr...

Mrs. Raweon, who is en deavouring to obtain a divorce from her husband suddenly ' empbied her revolver in court.' The object of this proceeding was to shoot Colonel H. C. Whitney, her husband's lawyer, who, although by his agility he avoided losing his life, seems to have had a narrow escape. He was bending over some papers, absorbed in their contente, when Mrs. Rawson moved towards him with an expression on her face which, as he looked up on her approach, warned him that she ' meant business.' Lawyer Whitney at once jumped to his feoot and retreated hastily. Mrs. Rawson then raised her revolver and fired, the ballet cdashing in the side of Judge Jamieaon's desk. While in this position Mrs. Rawson fired four shots at him. Two of the shots hit him, and he was wounded seriously but not fatally. Mrs. Rawson was seizgd by the court officials, and o...

*THE GREATEST BUTILDING EVEA BUILT. (THE TIMES.) Having begun work with the first day of the year, and carrieo it on through the almost intolerable heat of the fieroeut Egyptian spring known for at least the last decade, Mr W. M. Flindere Petrie has at length brought his arduose Faynm campaign to a. close, At Hawara there is a dilapidated brick pyramid, which enjoys the reputation of never having been opened; and an extensive area of level ground thickly honeycombed with the foundations of brick buildings. These foundations and this pyramid were oonjeotarally idon tifled by Lepsins nearly fifty years ago with the remains of the Labyrinth and the tomb of the founder. The meanness of the ruins and the poverty of the material have, how ever, caused his identification to be received, at all events of Ilte years, with coneiderable mistrust; and it was with a view to settling this Interesting question that Mr Petrie migrated to Hawara on the 24th of last January with a following of fifty....

To those who take an interest In the B terual City M, Do Is Briere's beckon the Pope's Jubilee, entbiled 'A Rome,' just, Issued in Paris, will prove both good and' instructive reading. The volume, whlch Is published by M. Gervals, of the Rue Tournon, is composed of a series of letters from a Pontifloal Zonave' on the fetes which took place at Bt. Peter's last Christmas. Perhaps the most ourlons of the letters Is that description of the recreations of Leo XIIL It ic not gliren to everybhcdy to pone trate the recesses of the Vatioar domain; but M. Do la Briere, being an old Zonave: and a doughty champion of the Roman Church in days gone by, was enabled to see what must be veiled for ever from the eyes of the profane aod cynical heretic.
