Oliver Logan writes from Long-Branch:
"It seems strange that the irrepressible
coquetry of the American woman should
not have niched itself (to us Mme de
Sevigtie's expression) in her bathing cos'
turn1. Women of the most marked ele
gauce i.i drawing-rooms obey the law of
our laud and make the vilest scare-crows
of themselves to go into the surf. More
bathing dresses aie let out in Long Branch
in a single week than aie so disposed tn a
whole season at all the French resorts
combined. Every French lady frequent
ing les bains de mur pays special attention
to providing herself with un costume de
bain. And this outfit is as carefully se
lected iu jeg.ird to its becominguess in
color and cut ; its fits must be as perfeet,
its freshness as undoubted as any dress
that m tdam wears. Some of these cos
tumes are really charmiug, and when
donned enchauce the beamy or elegance
of their wearers quite as much as any
other. A delicate rose flannel, with knife
pletting of white, hat trimmed in accord
ance, pink bose, and straw shoes, uavy
bine serge with stripes of yellow, green
and brown merinos - these are some of the
combination which dwell in my memory
from last season. Many ladies have
several such costumes an extravagance
scarcely worth mentioning, as the mater
terials from which such dresses are made,
are verv cheap. But whatever a French
lady s sea bathing costume may be her
own and three or four of them in tbe sea
son, or hired from day to day from la
baigneur one accessory is absolutely
ludispensible. I mean the long flannel
cloak, w bich it would be to offend the plain
est propriety not to wear from the moment

beach is literally strewn with these cloaks.
Each claims her own, and I never heard
of a misappropriation. To dispense with
these cloaks warm snd dry after leaving
the sea and to tun along tbe sands ex

would be considered a piece of imprudence
in a hygienic sense, and to dress and go

circulation by tlie use of the hot foot-bath
would be looked upon as sheer madness

If the people were not awake to the

Wheo the lime comes for tbe Presiden
tial election, tbe Democratic party will
find itself so fortified by the success of its
measures, that it will go into that contest
with the assurance of carrying tbe State.
And tlie Republican party has gained
so little that it stands precisely where
it did with its unbroken negro vole, and
the shifting, precarious reliance ot such a
white vote of either superlatively liberal
in its views, or the passive instrument of
the leadership of office-liolder.
The Turkish Insurrection.
The insurrection in Herzegovina forms
the subject of almost daily telegrams from
Europe, and tbe outbreak is assuming
threatening propositions. This province
is a portion of the Turkish Empire ad
joining the Austrian dominions. Whilst
the Turks are its rulers, Herzegovina
contains a large Christian population, and
Austria is supposed to take a deep inter
est in their welfare. Tbe trouble began
with quarrels between the Moslems and
Christians, and have gradually grown
until the latter have rebelled against the
Turkish domination. Servia, an adjoin-
reached her third

MeStiuger succeeded in getting to bis
feet once more snd became dimly visible
to Mr. McStinger. With one last parting
shriek she sprang from tbe bed and msde
a dash for the door, near which the rock
ing chair still stood menacing the whole
universe with a hatting motion. Mrs.
McStinger bsd no time for investigation
just then, and she pitched into and over
the rocking chair and clear on downstairs,
tbe chair after her, turning over and ever,
and kicking Mrs. McStinger every bump,

poor husbands to fall over, we shall oot

Dr. Luion, of Rbeims. states that for

he says, it is taken with avidity, then in
moderation, and at last with signs of
