PRESBYTERIAN BAZAAR.— We paid a visit last Wednesday evening to the Bazaar at the Mechanics Institute in aid of the building fund of the new Presbyterian Church, and al- though we are somewhat acquainted with the wonders which needles and thread, worked by skilful hands, can accomplish, we were un- prepared for the gorgeous array of fancy work there exhibited.
