As Aqe Magnitude.— We live, says
the New Yotc Hera.d, in the age of great
events. Everything which is done now ia
on a scale ot magnitude never before con
templated. The gigantic Atlantic cable is
being laid by the largest ship in the world.
The Suez Canal, uniting the Mediterranean
and Red Seas, will soon be completed. The
tunnel through the Alps at Mount Ccnis will
find no impediment to its successful con
struction by the discovery of almost im
penetrable quarts. The Hoosic tunnel will be
a fait accompli. The city of Chicago is about,
to be supplied with water from Lake Mich',

A Dramatization of Milton’s Paradise
Lost” is played in Paris, which mortally
offends an English critic who thus writes :
“The idea of so brutalizing one’s idea of
Paradise as to bave it represented by the
scene painter, with the tree of knowledge in
the second grooves, and Adam and Eve dis
puting about the forbidden fruit in language
not even ot the choicest_ description, is as
tonishing enough, but when, in the fourth
act, the sonS of Cain are represented danc

shocking, or even disgusting.”
Death of Capt. Perclvnl Drayton, C. S. IV.
(From the Troy (K. Y.) Sews, August«.]
Captain Percival Drayton, a highly accom
plished and esteemed officer of the United
States Navy and Chief of the Bureau of Navi
gation and Detail of the Navy Department,
died at the Rugby House, in this city, ut
11 45 p. m. yesterday.
Capt. Drayton was born in South Carolina
on the 25th of August, 1812. He was the
son of Hon. Wm. Drayton, a prominent po
litical leader, and yhom Gen. Jackson ad
vised President Monroe to take into his Cabi
net as Secretary of War at the time Mr. Cal
houn was appointed. Col. Drayton was a
member of Congress from South Carolina
frem 1825 to 1838, and a prominent member
of tLe Unio» party in that State in opposition
to the nullification in 1830, and who, on
account of his sentiments, determined to
seek another ftesidence. He removed to
Philadelphia, and succeeded Nicholas Biddle
as President of the United States Bank.
Capt. Drayton entered the Navy as mid
shipman in December, 1827, wai promoted
to lieutenant in February, 1838, and from
that time to 1852 was successively attached
to the Brazilian, Mediterranean, and Pacific
squadrons. He was then ordered to the Na
tional Observatory in this city, and subse
quently assigned to ordnance duty in New
York.' His promotion as commander was
made in 1855 ; he was in the Paraguay expe
dition in 1858, and in the subsequent year
was ordered to the Brazilian squadron on the
staff of the present Admiral Shubrick. In
1860 he was assigned to ordnance duty at the
Philadelphia yard, and was upon that ser
vice at the breaking out of the rebellion.
He heartily, and without hesitation, en
tered earnestly into all the measures ofj the
Government for the defence of the Union,
rejecting all the overtures of his nearest rela
tives to take part with the South against
his country. He was appointed to the com
mand of the steamer Pocahontas in the ex-
Stdition against Port Royal, under Admiral
upont, and on that occasion fought against
his brother, Gen. T. F. Drayton, (a graduate
ot West Point,) who commanded the rebel
troops at Hilton Head. He was afterwards
transferred to the PAwnee, in which vessel
he was of great service oh the Southern
coast. He made repeated reconnoissances
up St. Helena Sound and adjacent waters ;
was at the capture of Fernandina and St.
Mary's, the occupation of Stono river, Ac.
He was promoted to Captain on the 16th
of July, 1862, and in the fall of that year was
ordered to the monitor Fassiac, the second of
that class of vessels. In this iron-clad he
bombarded Fort McAllister, and was in the
first attack upon Fort Sumter, under Adini*
ral Du Pont. After a short ordnance duty in
New York, he was appointed Fleet Captain
ot the West Gulf squadron, under Admiral
Farragut, and whs with him in the Hartford
at the time of the fight with and capture of
the rebel fleet in Mobile hay, one vear aim to
day. (August 5,1865.) He

officer to New \ ork, and perhaps no one in
the navy enjoyed his confidence to a greater
extent than Capt. Drayton. On the'’Bth of
of April last he was appointed Chief of the
Bureau of Navigation, as successor to Rear
Such is a brief record of his service—more
varied and important than usually falls u>
the lot of a naval officer. It is not too much
to say that he was universally considered one

A Fortress Monroe corresponded of the
Petersburg lodex, under date of July 2»tk,
Ilaidly anything is spoken of here save
the intense beat and the military changes
which daily occur from the moving of troops
to their homes.
Yesterday, however, a little incident trans
pired, which will prove of interest to your
readers. Mr. Davis, as you are aware,’ has
l>een allowed for several days past the privi
lege of walking on the ramparts. • An officer
accompanies him, afid a guard, armed with
musket, follows some five or ten feet in the
rear. A. similar indulgence is granted Mr.
Clay, under the same restrictions. Care
seems to have been taken that they should
not be out at the same time, hut last evening,
probably through inadvertence, they were
permitted to be out at the same hour, aud
during their promenade they met- •
It was the first friendly face, save the sur
geon's that cither prisoner had seen tor
months, aud the emotions that rushed upon
the hearts of both may be imagined. Mr.
Clay extended his band, remarking:
“ Though we are not permitted to hold
conversattnn, Mr Davis, I presume we will
not be forbidden to shake hands."
The accompanying officers made no ob
jections, and the two gentlemen clasped
hands with a fervor and feeling such as rare
ly attends this familiar courtesy.
Mr. Davis’ thin lips quivered, but proba
bly-from bis desire to observe scrupulously
the rules of his confinement, lie uttered no
To-day the rule was adopted of appoint
ing different houts for the promenade, and
Mr. Davis walked alone this morning at fi.

It passes our comprehension, sitting, this
suffocating day. in our little room with closed
blinds excluding the sun, and a constant
waving of fans in the air to bring forth a
faint pretence of coolness, how the unhappy
females still enclosed within the city’s hot
limits can exist in the fearful and wouderful
toilets in which they select to perambulate
tlie streets; and we can readily understand
that they must bless the light and airy hoop
skirt even more that usual. Without that
merciful crinoline how would it he possible
at all to carry the load of white filled aud
fluted skirts, overlopped with the flounced
or flluted dress skirt! Blessed hoop skirt!
A million female voices rise this day to sing
your praises; and a million beautiful dresses
floating down or looped up over (according
as the wearers are within doors or without)
these same hoop skirts display their loveli
ness to our admiring gaze. As it is impossi
ble that we should give a description of any
thing like that somewhat overwhelming
number, as wc hasten to present to ouf read-
ers as many poriraits of good dressing our
space will admit of.
Batege dress of Marie Louise blue ; the
skirt trimmed with a wide box plaiting of
the same, set on round the bottom, and
beaded with Guipure inserting over white
ribbon; the waist gathered into two or
three plaits, and get in a belt; sleeves a
narrow coat pattern, and trimmed with
white ribbon and Guipure to match the skirt.
Fawn colored silk, bound round the bottom
with velvet to match, finished off with a
heading of white cord. Corsage with poiuls
in front and basquines behind, trimmed with
velvet and cord to match the skirt, and but
toned down the front with glass buttons set
in silver. Coat sleeves trimmed to corres
pond with velvet and cord. AH sleeves are
coat sleeves now; the difference consists
merely in having them larger or smaller, In
having them cut up the side aud slashed,
corded and variously trimmed ; indeed, a
new style of sleeve is very much required,
although the coat sleeve is neat,
elegant, pretty, particularly well
suited to the wearing of undersleeves.
We particularly admire a walking
suit of black silk,. which consisted of
dress and short sacque to match. The skirt
was trimmed with Guipure insertion, put on
in a double row,aud crossing at each breadth
in a diamond-shaped figure. The waist was
a French pattern, set on a belt, with sleeves
of the ordinary shape, and trimmed to cor
respond with the skirt. The sacque which
accompany these suits are so simple as to
require no description. This one was trim
med around the skirt and on the sleeves to
correspond exactly with the dress. The bon
net worn with this toilet was of rose, pink
crape in folds, trimmed round the front with
a niching of white fillies of the valley, and
iuside with the same; pink strings, and
crown set off with bows and ends of narrow
pink ribbon, and of while blonde lace,with a
single bunch of white valley lillies. Black
gloves, stitched with pink.. We have not
seen a more recherche street costume this
Our ladies have a monstrous habit of mix
ing colors in dress, so that it is not unusual
to see a dress, mantel, bonnet and glovea of
contrasting shades; and when we do see
a harmonious toilet it is pleasing exceedingly
to the beauty loving eye. English papers
inform us that at a recent ball in London
there was such a large number of ladies wear
ing the Josephine style of dress that it looked
very much like being the prevailing fashion.
This new vagary has not yet reached <\prown
shores, aud we hope it may not, for the fash
ion is one little calculated to display to ad
vantage the slight and girlish figures of which
our young ladies, at least, are so justly proud.
The hideous bonnets with which we have
been threatened from abroad, have not yet
becu inflicted on us either, and we earnestly
trust that they will not; for the present cha
peau has CQdeared itself to us now, and we
do not desire to see it give place to a large,
unwieldy, curtainless, crowuless concern
which will sit merely across the forehead,
and destroy even the pretty air of full dress
coiffure, which distinguishes the bonnet of

out a thousand dewy-sprinklings of whatev

tributes the sweet smelling particles over

all and wetting none; and as a means of

On Friday evening, Minnie Pbalen, twen
ty-one years of age, entered the furnishing
store of Mr. Gustave Bael, 198 Grand street,
NY., and assaulted him with a cowhide.
Mr. Bael resisted her vigorous castigation,
and took up a stick in sell defence. James
I orrest, aud who was in the young lady's
company, then seized Bael, while Minnie be
labored him with the cowhide. MissPhalen
states in explanation of her conduct, that she
visited Baer's store early on Monday morn
ing last to purchase some articles, and that
atter the articles were put up the storekeeper
charged her more than ahe had agreed to
pay. She therefore refused to take the pur
chase and demanded back her money, which
demand was refused by Baer, who called her,
she alleges, names which did not belong to
her. Hence the cowbiding.
A young woman, very handsome and
about eighteen was pickep up in a Chicago

Instructions to Assistant Commissioners and other
Each Assistant Commissioner will be careful, in the
establishment of sub-districts, to have the office of bis
agent at some point easy, of access for the people of
He will have at least one agent, either a citizen,
military officer, or enlisted man. In each snb-district.
This agent must be thoroughly instructed in his du
ties. He will be furnished with the proper blanks for
contracts, and will Institute methods adequate to meet
tlie wants of his district in accordance with the rules
of this Bureau. No fixed rates of wages will be pre
scribed for a district, but in order to regulate fair wnvpg
in given individual cases, the agent should have in
mind minimum rates for his own guidance By care
ful inquiry as to the hire of au able-bodied man when
the pay went to the master, he will have an approxi
mate test of the value of labor. He must of conrse
consider the entire change of circumstances, aud be
sure that the laborer has due pi otection against avarice
and extortion. Wages had better be secured by a lien
on the crops or land. Employers are desired to enter
into written agreements with employees, setting lorth
stated wages, or securing an interest in the land or
crop, or both. All snch agreements will be approved
by the nearest agent, and a duplicate filed in his office.
In case there should be no agent within reach, the
nearest postmaster will forward the duplicate of con
tracts direct to the Assistant Commissioner for the
Atjention is specially called to section 4 of the law
establishing the Bureau, with regard to setting apart
land to "every male citizen, whether refugee or freed
man," Ac., and the same arrangement la recommend
ed when it can be effected, between private parties.
Already many farmers have rented lands to freedmen
aud refugees This course Is a recognition of the gen
eral principal in the law.
In order to enforce the fulfillment of contracts on
both contracting parties, the Commissiouor of the Bu
reau lays down no general rule—the Assistant Com
missioner must use the privileges and authority he
already has. Provost courts, military commissions,
locat courts, when the freedmen and refugees have
equal rights with other people, are open to his use. In
the great majority ol cases his own arbitrament, or
that of his agent, or the settlement by referees, wll
No Assistant Commissioner, or agent, is Authorized
to tolerate compulsory unpaid labor, except for the
legal punishment of crime. Suffering may result to
some extent, but suffering is preferred to slavery, and
is to some degree the necessary consequence of events.
In all actions the officer should never forget that no
substitute for slavery, like apprenticeship without
proper consent, or peonage, (1. e., either holding the
people by debt, or confining them, without consent,
to the laud by any system,; will be tolerated.
The Assistant, Commissioner will designate one or
more ot bis agents to act as the general superinten
dent of schools fone for each State; lor refugees aud
freedmen. This officer will work as much as possible
in conjunction with State officers who may have school
matters in charge. If a general system can be adopt
ed for a State, it Is well; but if not, he will at least
take cognizance of all that is being done to educate
refugees and freedmen, secure proper protection to
schools and teachers, promote method and efficiency,
correspond with the benevolent agencies which are
supplying his field, and aid the Assistant Commission
er m mating his required reports.
Surgeon C. W. Horner, Chief Medical Officer of the
Bureau, will have the general supervision or medical’
matters connected with refuges and freedmen.
The Assistant Commissioners will instruct their
medical officers, as they have iustrusted other officers,
to make the medical department self-supporting as
far as possible.
All public addresses of a character calculated to
create discontent are reprehensible ; but the Assistant
Commissioner And his agents must explain, by con
stant recapitulation, the principles, laws, and regula
tions of this Bureau, to all parties concerned. It 1*
recommended to the Assistant Commissioners to draw
up lit writing a carelnl summary to be publicly and
privately read by agents throughout their respective
