J 1 1 he Paris correspondent of a city paper says, that in consequencei ot plainribbons beingsomucli worn, thoy/mvjv/ribbon manufacturers of Evens and St. Mtenne have addressed a petition to the Empress, praying her to encourage their branch of the trade, which she promised to do as far as lay in her power, by using them profusely herself, and “she has been as good as her word.” Wc may, therefore, expect an effort to revive the old broended style for sashes, belts, bows, and ornaments of every description, greatly enhancing the cost of a toilette. For a full plain dress, very handsome silks, brocaded in solid colors* ana very fine designs, thickly sprinkled on the jjronnd, are very much in vogue, and aro not on ly a t%rays ladylike but very durable. Cashmers and delaines are imported in very strik- ing designs and colors. A novelty for robe dechan- Ore is of scarlet cashmere, the skirt covered with a magnificent shawl pattern, at least two-thirds its depth, leaving the plain scarlet surface where the flounces usually terminate. A narrow border of the same pattern accompanies it for the purpose of trim ining the waist jacket and sleeves. The jacket is of the “117” cut, and rounds off from the front of the body, which is bordered up to tho throat. Tlie sleeves are plain and flowing, and trimmed to match. Cashmere dresses como in all sorts of whimsical designs. One hasan underskirt of almond brown, spotted with green. The upper skirt is of forest green, with bias plaid bands placed lengthwise at also to find some means of making the amende honorable to our government for the narticipa- tion of President Mora in the declaration ap pended to the Belly contract, and for several outrages committed on American citizens by tlie Englishman Canty, commanding the Costa Iitcau forces on the San Juan river. The turn of these demands will come in due coarse. M ilh Mcsico diplomatic relations are virtu ally closed. Our Minister in that capital has been ordered to close the delegation and re- turn home, and Senor Robles, the Mexican Minister here, has been gone several weeks on a temporary visit to his government. A vessel of war has been ordered to visit the Pacific ports of Mexico, and others will be kept at band to present themselves before the Gulf ports, if the protection of our citizens should require it. It is not probable that re lations will be again opened with the govern ment of the priest party there, and redress for the outrages upon our citizens in Mexico can- pressed upon the Juarez government until it is in power. In the present position of affairs with Vcn- zucla, the government declines to receive a new Minister from that republic. Air. Eames In Bed with a Serpent. I might have slept some four or five hours, and a dreamless aud satisfying sleep it was, but certain it is—sciolists say what they will, and sceptics throw doubts by handsful ca tbc assertions of metaphysicians—that, before I awoke, and in my dreamless slumber, I had a visible perception of peril—a consciousness of the hovering presence of death! How to des cribe my feelings I know not; but as We have all read aud heard that, if the eyes of a watch er are steadily fixed. on the countenance of a sleeper for a certain length of time, the slumber will be sure to start up, awakened by the mysterious magnetism of a recoudite prin ciple of clairvoyance—so it was that, with shut eyes and drowsed up senses, an inward ability was conferred upon me to detect the living presence of danger near me—to see through sleep the formless shape of a mysterious hor ror crouching beside me; and, as if the peril that was my nightmare was of a nature to be quickened into fatal activity by any motion on my part, I felt in my very stupor the criti cal necessity of lying quite still, so that, when I at last awoke and felt that, as I lay, with M-M my face towards the roof, there was a thick, sent home a short time since a note he had re- heavy, cold, creeping thing on my chest, I ceivcd from the government of General Cas tro, which lie thought was a settlement of the claims of our citizens.

An Indian letter in the London Times an nounces the death of Ranee (Queen of Jhansi at the hands of the British before Gwalior. Though but twenty-three years of age, she is said to have resembled the great Russian Catherine in her administrative powers, and shrieking. As it was, a cold sweat burst from every pore, I could hear the beating of my heart; and I felt to my increased dismay, that the palsy of terror had begun to agitate my limbs. It will wake, though I, and then all is over. At that juncture something—it might have been a wall-lizard or a large beetle—fell from the ceiling upon my left arm, which lay stretch ed at my side. The snake, uncoiling its head, raised itself with a low hiss, and then for the first time, I saw it, saw the hood, the terrible crest, glitering in the moonshine. It was a Cobra de Capella! Shading my eyes to ex clude the dreadful spectacle, I lay almost fainting until it was quiet again. Had its fiery glance encountered mine, all would have over, bur, apparently, it was once more asleep, and presently I heard the Lascar moving a- bout undoing the fastening of the tent, and striking alight. A thought suddenly struck me, and with an impulse I could hardly ascribe to nothing to nothing short of desperation though _its — | Lascar!" “Sahib!” was the instantaneous response, and my heart beat quicker at the I success of my attempt. I lay still again, fdr the reptile evidently roused, made a movement, and its head, as I I suppose, fell upon my naked arm. Oh, God ! ' the agony of that moment, when suppressed tremor almost gave way to madness ! I de bated with myself whether I should again ! eudeavor to nttract the attention of the Kul- lassi, or remain perfectly quiet, or whether it would not be better than either to start up at once and shake the disgustful burthen from me. But the latter suggestion was at once [ abandoned because of the assurance I felt that Little by Little. “Little by little,” as the acorn said, As it slowly sank in its mossy bed, ••I am improving every day. Hidden deep in thoe.nth away.” Little by little each day it greiv; Little by little it sipped the dev.- ; Downward it sent out a threat-like root; ITp in the air sprang a tiny shoot; Day after day, and year alter year. Little by little the leaves appear; And tho slender branches spread far aud wide Till the mighty oak is the torest’s pride. Far down in the depths of the dark blue sea. An insect train work ceaselessly ; Grain by grain, they are building well. Each one alone in its little cell. Moment by moment, and day by day. Never stopping to work or play, Hock upon rock they are rearing high, Till the top looks out on the. sunny sky ; Tho gentle wind and the balmy air, Little by little bring verdure there; Till tho summer suubeams gladly smile, On the birds and flowers of the coral isle. “Little by little,” said a thoughtful boy, “Moment by moment I’ll well employ,’ Leaning a little every day. And not spending all my time In play. And still this rule in my hand shall dwell, Whatever I do, I’ll do it well. Little by little I’ll learn to know The treasured wisdom of long sgo; And one of these days, perhaps, we’ll see That the world will bo the better for me.” And do not you think that this simple pian, Made him a wise and a useful man 1 Pekin, as Seen by an American A correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer was at Pekin, the capital of China, a short time ago, and what he saw of it and how it impressed him, he thus describes : On arriving at the capita! of the Chinese Empire, we find a city containing about two millions of inhabitants. Such is the estimate, but doubtless the calculatiou is made in the usual spirit of Eastern exaggeration. Be this as it may, the walls are fourteen miles in cir cumference, twenty-eight feet high, twenty- four feet thick at the base, and twelve at the top. There are spacious towers all around, at seventy feet distance from each other, and at the "gates are barracks for the soldiers, nine stories in height. The metropolis is divided into two parts, one inhabited by the Tartars, and the other by the Chinese. In each there is a street four miles long and one hundred and twenty feet wide, aud the Emperor’s pal aces and gardens occupy two thirds of the Tartar city. And all this besides the suburbs, which are nearly as populous ns the city prop er. Pekin is strangely located as a national cap ital, it being in a northern corner, (lat. 40 deg.) and only sixty miles south of the famous Chi nese wall, and therefore much exposed to north ern and hostile neighbors. Yet its fortifica tions are strong, and until the vast machinery of modern artillery was invented, the brother of the snn and moon was perfectly secure in his palatial halls—the walls, bnstions and tow ers being impregnable in ancient times. If bravely-manned and defended, the Oriental po tentate, robed in imperial purple, might have exclaimed with Macbeth, “Ourcastle’sstrength will laugh the siege to scorn !” Although the country about Pekin is sandy and unproduc tive, yet provisions abound, being brought by canals from all the great rivers, and also with its commerce—the merchants being paid in money, as the capital is the chief recipient of the revenues of all China. It has ever been regarded as a very exc lusive place, the pres ence of no foreigner being permitted within its walls. But now, the “outside barbarians” RUSSELL'S PATENT FULre «&> 'Water Proof MASTIC HOOFING O 1ST O .A. 1ST V S.

A Decidedly Cool Meanest and a RATHER ICY REPLY. It will be recollected that the members of the Wisconsin Legislature and divers and sundry other persons have been charged with receiv ing from the La Crosse and Milwaukie Rail Road Company, a bribe, in the shape of the bonds of that Company. At a recent meeting of the officers of said Company circulars were ordered to be issued to the holders of these bonds, requesting them to return the same. A gentleman by the name of Woodle, who re ceived one of these circulars, replied to it as follows Janesville, July 16, 1858.—Sir:—Your kind favor of the 16th instant, informed me that a committee had been appointed byt he Board of Directors of the La Crosse and Milwaukie Rail Road Company for the purpose of calling in the bonds familarly known as tlie “corrup tion bonds,” has been received. You trust I will see the importance of immediately re turning to the Company tho bonds received by me. In reply, permit me to say that, by the aid of my optics, I have as yet been unable to see the importance of returning the said bonds to the Company, although I am not near-sighted, and have “looked.” I have, however, sir, to ask you will defer any further action on the subject until I shall have received Lord Ross’ telescope, for which I have sent a special messenger this morning, and through which, when received, I will take another observation. Hoping that you will be able to refund your floating debt, and pay your coupons, I remain yours in the “bond,” &c. ISAAC WOODLE. To Win. A. Guest, Chairman &c. A Dcsdcmiona among Hie Sioux. The Mankato Independent relates the follow ing incident—basis enough for a thrilling ro mance - One of the Sioux chiefs lately returned from Washington brought back with him an addition to hi3 household, in the shape of a white wife, a good looking, fashionably dressed young woman, about twenty years of age. From one of onr citizens, who went up to the agency on the same boat, we learn that she manifested considerable disappointment at the aspect of affairs on her arrival. The romance of the thing was pretty effectually ‘squashed’ by the appearance of the inmates and surroun dings of her new home. She declined all of fers of assistance from the officers of the boat, who were anxious to return her to civilized so ciety, protesting her ability and intention to attend to her own business, and advising them to do likewise. They left her in an eight by ten feet mud hovel, in company with a couple of Dacotah maidens, who also, we believe, had claims upon the affections of the chief in ques tion.” TERMS: “ One-third of tho purchase money to bo paid in cash, the balance in one and two years, in equal instalments, with eight per cent, interest from date of purchase; titles to be made by tho Receiver when all the purchase money is paid.” The sale will be positive and without reserve.

Hill LI i DcbiSity of Sexual Organs. ■Whether caused by dissipation or otherwise, will receive not only prompt and efficient aid but a radi cal cure, from the use of Sisley’s Compound Fluid Extract of Buchu, a remedy whose action is exerted upon the Urinary and Uterine Organs. These are forms of Sexual Debility that are often times very serious, distressing and’intractable, and which can only be relieved by the exercise of no little care and caution, a judicious selection of reme dial agents and a perseverance iu their use. The above mentioned preparation, if regularly tiiken, conjoined with regular and moderate exercise in the open air, avoiding all habit, of a relaxing nature, and hist but not least, cold bathing, will not fail in bring ing about a cure no matter how stubborn or intract able tho case may he. As * reliable remedy i: stands very far in advance of all _-ther preparation-: tmd if taken properly will not fail to cure. Abundance of testimony of its remedial efficacy in this disease could be brought before the public eye, wns it proper to do so. The invalid may have every confidence in it, for it has been tested in a multitude of instances, and always with tho happiest results and too, in many ImUbcSI where its use was commenced with out the slightest particle of faith which of itself Is not unfrequently sufficient to cause failure.

It is particularly recommended 10 those persons whose constitutions may have been impaired by the continuous use of ardent spirits, or other firms of dissipation.
