VOL. 3. NO H. OLD FASHIONED FASHIONS. Tlic font George Washington Went i Courting In. i James Parton. ( The Ledger remarked the other day very I truly that "the fashionable w.'ild is not as silly as it used to be." There must be a certain amount of folly committed among the people who are not obliged to expend their energies in earning their subsistence. They must do something, and the foolish among them are sure to do some foolish things i The only person really fit to be exempt J from the common lot of mortals is he who / lias an object or a hobby, which fives him j an abundance of interesting employment. 1 and at the same time tends to benefit the public. , Such men. for example, as Newton, I Howard, Tennyson, Bancroft, Prescott; men capable of devoting themselves to a 1 _ life time cf generous toil or study. There ' was a gentleman in Massachusetts ninety years ago who devoted his leisure and in - telligence to improving the breed of Berk shire pigs, his object being to abbrevia...

The of the family is composed of a ten-year-old son, Billy Pettigrew, and a blessed baby. Mr. Petiigrew is a lawyer and a jjood-natured sort of a man. In Mrs. Pettigrew the maternal instinct is very much in the ascendancy. Almost all her thoughts are centered in Billy and the baby and a newcarpet for the parlor. The baby being only a year old, his character is not yet sufficiently developed to admit of an analysis; but the neighbors, judging by his voice, predict that he will become an auctioneer. Billy, the boy—the irrepressible boy—seems to be of a mercenary disposition. He recen...

A Baltimore girl, who faints at the sight of a caterpillar, turns green at the sight of blood, and it is i'i every way of a most gentle and kindly nature, thus writes home about her visit to a bull fight—the occasion beint the farewell to Paris of the Prince of Matadors, Louis Miizzantini: 'At last I have seen mj first bull fight, and I trust my last. You could not have tv-roe it five miuutes, and 1 scarcely know how I did. "Imagine an immense arena, with 22.000 pejple packed in circles, while above innocent little white clouds floated over an intensely blue sky. At limes the tender hearted clouds shut the sky entirely off from all view of what was g'ung on beneath in the arena, while frequent short April like showers of tears (?) fell from tbem, and it, is to be hoped soothed the "wounls of ihe six enraged bulls that succeeded each other to death.

London, Oct. —There was a wild-eyed American in the corridor of the Victoria Hotel to-day. He had just received his weekly bill. He strolled up and down the marble staircase, stamped his feet, clenched his list, while great beads of perspiration rolled from his forehead and his hair stood on end. He was so angry that he had lost the power of speech. It took fully a half hour to quiet him, and this was only accomplished after several cooling drinks had been administered in the bar-room. When be was able to talk coherently he pulled a sheet of paper or rather bill-head from his pocket and pointed to this line: To meals no...

VOL. 3. NO 13. NORFOLK SOCIETY. Tt« Clay City by tbt 8*«-R«eeptlon, Harriif*. Ac. Written for The Critic. Our Norfolk season has opened with such a rush it is impossible to do justice to ail the beautiful entertainments. So my Richmond readers must excuse the bald ness of iry descriptions. Properly speaking, we cannot be said to be like other cities in naming only the one season of gaiety coming between November and Lent. Here all seasons are gay, and strangers are so often struck with the briifht, joyous faces of our young people, upon whom dull care never seems to be able to place any hold, not even a light one. No wonder they like the place and when an ill fortune, as they regard it, takes them away it is the Mecca towards which their longing eyes are ever turned. So much done for their happiness and their lightheadedness naturally h"lps the older ones to bear the troubles of life ith a better grace. But this week has been unusually nay, with some special feature for each day's a...

Here is a pretty way to finish the ends of a stand scarf or edge of a corner bracket; if one has time and material, it makes a very pr tyy finish for a mantel: Take all the old hair ribbons or pieces of silk that are of no farther use, It makes no difference how soiled or faded they are. Out them in strips about an inch wide; ravel each edge, leaviug a center a quarter of an inch. How pretty and soft they look ! You see it takes off all the soil and fade. You can use silk or satin, part cotton if you cut them so in raveling the cotton thread will pull out and leave the silk. You can cut them any length, have them convenient to ravel easily. After you have quite a quantity raveled lap the ends just far enough to sew strongly. Sew all together, mixing the colours, the bright with thedark. When you have them all sewed take two*large.sized wooden needles and knit t...

During the performance the young children, dressed as old maids, went through an umbrella drill, and each recited, danced, sang or did something in a specialty way, one making a speech in deaf and dumb alphabet. This idea could be carried out anywhere. The head one is the chief of the society of these old maids, and she has a long roll of paper which she reads off, which can be made...
