[From our Richmond Correspondent.] ALLEN MCDONALD. Major Otway Allen and Miss Mary Me Dmald were made one at St. Paul's Church on Wednesday evening last, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Geo. Funsten, Assistant Rector. The bride is the popular daughter of Col. James McDonald. The weddings this season have been green and white, this was pink and white, making a very charming variation. The bride's gown was very elegant white satin, her veil was artistically pinned with diamond brooches, and in front was finished by a magnificent diamond ornament, the gift of the groom, and she carried iu her hand an exquisite little wliite prayer book with Lilies of the Valley enclosed between its leaves. The groom and groomsmen wore boutonnieres of _Lilv of tii: 1 Valley. Miss Jlandy, as .Maid of Honor, walked immediatel...

PET BURGLAR ALUMS WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO SLEEP WITH ONE EYE OPEN. Che Silent Bull Terrier the Most EffectIre House Protector—Fate of a Thief. A Bnfflan In the Kitchen—Bit of Ad- * Tice. "I do not train doge to watch for burglars, 11 odd a fancier, "but some of them that are well bred are led to do it by their natural sagacity and force of character. They may not perform the duty with the desperate energy that is shown by the whity brown cor with the long tail and the black patch over his eye, but they will do it well enough to answer every reasonable expectation. That boll terrier you see there now, weighing about thirty-five pounds, with the undershot jaw and ugly enough to be put into a chamber of horrors anywhere, might be wide awake when a robber is squeezing his body through the pantry window, but he would make no effort to stop the man's entry; but once in the fellow would have bard work to get out again.

SOCIETY. What The People Of Virginia Are Doing. WHERE OUR FRIENDS ARE.—A FULL REPORT OF SOCIAL EVENTSWEDDINGS AND GERMANSNEWSY NOTES FROM THE SOCIETY CIRCLES OF OTHER CITIES. [From our Richmond Correspondent.] The reception at the Governor's was more than usually pleasant on Tuesday. Perhaps for the reason that it wa? regarded by some as breaking the austerities of Lent, and the natural interest which all feel in the presence of a bride added too to the occasion, and there was an unusual number of strangers, or old Richmonders, who took advantage of the occasion to call on the Governor and his gracious wife, and meet many old friends. The halls were handsomely decorated with growing plants, and a band of music from behind a bower of palms enhanced the pleasure of the guests, who did not seem disposed to make only a formal call, but lingered almost to the hour at which they were expected to leave. Mrs. Lee was .assisted in receiving by Mrs. Smith Lee j(the Governor's mother), Fowle, ...

A good hypnotic, and one that need not be feared, Is a tumbler of milk taken just a minute before getting into bed, no matter how late may be the hour of retiring. To eat freely of lettuce is good, but it should be taken »iihout vinegar; if oil is palatable, a few drips will improve it. For break fast, drink chocolate, and eat eggs and cutlets. At dinner, take fish, soup and meat; avoid acids. All dishes containing flour, eggs and sugar in quantities, are most desirable. Do not take cold baths, or too much exercise; let the air you breathe be pure, and pray control your temper, as nothing will make you look so angular, or give your face such an unde -ftirable look as the free indulgence of an Imperious will."

HOW POTTERY 13 MADE. Methods of Workmen in a New Jersey Establishment—Various Processes. The fashioning of pottery from clay may, at first glance, seem a simple process. We have all, as children, made mud pies. The mud pie urchin is th" potter in embryo. But when you know that the clay passes through thirty odd processes or handlings before the finished dish is produced, and that it may have received thirty of these handlings only to be utterly ruined at the thirty-first, and the proposition looks somehow different. The story of how a saucer is made is interesting. Imagine, in the first place, three heaps of stuff that looks like ground chalk. These are china clay, flint and. feldspar. They have already gone through certain processes of calcining, grinding, etc., before they reach the pottery, to fit them to the use for which they are intended. They are the potter's raw material. These three materials are mixed in certain proportions, the formula for which is said to be a secret kno...
