Evidence op Hakd Times.—The New. York Courier sums up the following irresistible evidence of hard times, which must convince the most skeptical : "Bnvndy is selling at a shilling a glass: a lady's dress for the opera costs a hundred to a hundred and fifty dollars : a private box at the opera costs thirty dollars a night; the rooms in the Drevoort Ilouse are rented at fifty thousand dollars a year, without board; turkeys are a shilling a pound ; Ilavnna cigars are sixpence a piece ; the last gift book published .by Appleton ' cost twelve dollars; Barnura gets seventy-five thousand dollars for his biography ; canvass-bacl? ducks are two dollars a pair ; and fashionable hair-dressers charge two dollars for fixing a lady's curls for an evening party.
