"4,000Weeflg GlrcnlatiOQ. VOL. I—NO. 16. SOCIETY. WHAT THE PEOPLE OF VIRGINIA ARE DOING. [From Our Richmond Correspondent.] The week before Christmas is a time when the hearts of the young are filled with anticipation, and those of the more mature, with anxiety. Entertainments are not thought of except for the future, and everybody is filled with the desire to "spend and be spent," in the service of their friends, neighbors and households. The eager rush, the thronged side-walks and shops, all bear witness to the unflagging interest with which the season is ever hailed. Other anniversaries, other leasts, celebrations and fasts, in the course of time, are forgotten, and give place to newer observances, but this Christmas, will ever hold its place in our hearts and homes, whilst there are mothera to tell the "Sweet story of old" and children to listen in wonder and delight to the origin of the custom of giving pi esents, the gifts which the Wise men of the East, brought to the infant ...

DINING FOR "FOREIGN DEVILS" AT % ALL HOURS OF THE DAY. "Pidgin English" and Its Difficulties. Everybody Carried About in Chaira or Palanquins —A Lady Takes In- the Sights of the City. The European taste is catered to fo far as the food, or chow, as it is always called here, is concerned. The cooks are all Chinamen, and very excellent cooks, for while they look with pitying eyes on the "foreign devil" who has the bad taste to prefer roast begf to stewed Jog or fricasseed black cats' eyes, they yet roast the beef to a turn, and run a French cordon bleu very closely in the piquancy of their sauces. The curry and rice, which might almost be called the piece de resistance, so regularly does it appear at both tiffin and dinner, is better here, to my taste, than in India, the lanfi of its birth. The condiments eaten with the curry constitute its charm. My boy, Ah Cheong, brings to my room every morning when I awaken, coffee, with narrow, crisp strips of buttered toast; breakfast proper is ...

How many people in Richmond are aware of the alarming proportions to which the use of opium and other stimulating narcotics has grown ? The thought -suggested itself to a Critic reporter when he noticed a young woman on Broad struct a few days ago, who bore all the evidence of the thorough "fiend." She-had evidently been deprived of the drug beyond the usual limit; her face was palled; her eyes of that glassy, expressionless appearance, common to regular habitues after the exhilaratory influence, has passed away: her whole form was in a tremor, which sne was struggling to overcome. Watching'her closely, the reporter followed, until'she turned out north Fourth street. She had taken but a few steps away from the throng of shoppers, when her right hand, which had been concealed in...

BUILDING PIANOS. SOME CURIOUS FACTS REGARDING THEIR MANUFACTURE AND SALE. Comparatively Few Piano Factories Can Justly Claim to Make Their Own Instruments—Fanciful Names—Borrowing a Good Scale —Various Successful Tricks. Pianofortes are no longer manufactured, but are built. Only two or three of the hundreds of piano factories in this country can justly claim to make their instruments from beginning to finish. Large, es Sjlishments devoted to the manufacture of s. -he particular portions of the instrument Viave sprung up of late, and have so revolutionized the art of piano making that in some shops not a single part of the completed instrument is made in the factory. There are probably a dozen places in New York and vicinity devoted exclusively to the making of cases. A like number make the beautiful and delicate piece of mechanism known as the action, and as many foundries cast the heavy iron plates which sustain the enormous strain of the strings. There are also manufacturers of s...

SOCIETY. What the People OF VIRGINIA are Doing. Where Our Friends Are—A Full Report of Social EventsWeddings and GermansNewsy Notes From the Circles of Other Cities. [From Our Richmond Correspondent.] The Leap Year Domino Ball took place at Belvidere Hall on Friday evening, the 13th. It was managed with perfect success by a few gentlemen afid ladies. There was no disorder, no unpleasant circumstance to mar the pleasure of the occasion, and it was so bright and full of amusing incidents as to afford an agreeable theme of conversation for some weeks to come. It was a happy thought of the young ladies who originated the plan to make it a domino ball instead of a regulation dress german, which could not possibly have included such a number of the society young people. It is scarcely appreciated, but nevertheless true, that whilst the larger number of our most attractive young ladies and agreeable young men attend the germans or belong to one or more of the german clubs, yet we know many...
