CHOICE OF COLORS itf iIiSS. Snggestionti hy lr, II. Xf. Bee cher. The Christian Union has a series of household artioloi by Mrs. Beechor, and in the last the question of Colors in Dress is discussed. Mrs. Beecher re marks' that works on the combinations of color in dress, divide complexions into the " Fair and Ruddy Blondes," and the " Pale and Florid Brunettes." In tho Fair Blondes we find a delicate whito skin, light hair in all tho shades from 'a goldon hue to yellow or orange brown ; light blue or gray eyes ; a -light tinge of rose on the cheek, and a richer tint on the lips. In all such complex ions the rose color is not decided enough, and the hair would bo improved by a deeper hue and these changes can. be made, in a good degree, by a suitable mingling of color in the dress. One of the most favorable colors for the Fair Blonde is a delicate green as it imparts to the flesh white of the skin a tint of red, which, mingling with the natural hue. forms an asrreeable rose tint a g...

On the Sumner removal the Phila delphia Pre, the loading, find one of the s.blest political papers in this State, snys: There is wonderful unanimity in the way in which the country receives the news ot Senator Sumner's removal from the chairmanship of the Committee on Foreign Relations. Almost without ex ception the Republican papers coudemn the act as ill-advised, and deprecate it ns injudicious; but one and all carefully distinguish between personal acts of the Administration and the great trust it carries for the country, whilo condemn ing the judgement of the President, they do not doubt the honesty of his intentions or swerve in their allegiance t,i the great Republican party.
