SIt is usual to assort that it we loot oem. mand of the sea this country could be starved out and forced to surrender without oonditions, without a single enemy putting his foot on our shores, Bow far is this correct? Supposing this country was at the merey of a coalition whblh had cleared the seas of our fleets-say France and Rtouesi for example-the result would be that the food trade would be carried on under the American fliag, or German flag. The supply of food would still go on. But it will be said that the enemy might declare all food contraband of war, in the same way as France declared rice a contra. band of war against Cina. 8o they might, but it would probably lead to a war with Amerlca or Germany. If our interests in the rise trade had been as great as Amerioa's interest in a provilon 'trade with England would be in cast of a war, we should have gone to war with Franoe swooer than submit

.. ADIES'..d.pLUMN. Br VIVA. FASHION NOTES. At midwinter fresh novelties in materials are seen, yet many women wait until the I seon is far advanced before buying their special gown, reasoniug that it wall be fresher at thaolose. This may or may not be a desirable arrangement, but each woman works out her own ides ot the fitness of gowns, and understands why at certain times, especially fresh ones are to be desired. The wool fabrics I are decidedly the smartest of the soeaon's I productions, and, trimmed with braid, for, or some contrasting fabric, they form very refined costmes. Tne adaptability of wool is great. It drapes artistically, softens the appearance of the skin. and makes less angular many a line; and then, too, it can be used for the oater garment, the bonnet, ansod the muff. A fancy is noted for large plaids, but it is only when positively under the control of discretion that their use is to be advised.

Military Waste. (ARM! AND NAVY GAZETS.) A w'ell.known writer on political economy in France, while denying that the financial difficulties of the French Republio. are wholly due to naval and military expendi ture, condemns the way in which enormous sums of money are wasted in conver.ting rifles and building new vessels, which soon have to be replaced by other weapons and other ships.
