A lady residing in this city discovered,
a few days since, a very peculiar bug, the
like of which is a great rarity in these
parts. Many who have examiued it state
that they have neverjseen anything of the
kind before. It was found on the leaf of
in oleander tree and is evidently of the
beetle species. It somewhat resembles a
conch, is enclosed entirely within a shell,
with the exceptiou of its tail, which its
hooked into a leaf and gives no evidence of
either feet or wings. It has been left at

Simplicity of Dress.
Female loveliness never appears to so
good an advantage as when set off with
simplicity of dress. No artist ever decks
his ange'.s with towering feathers and
gaudy jewelry; and eur dear human an
gels, if they would maki their title good
to that name, should carefully avoid or
naments whioh properly belong to Indian
squaws and A frican princesses. These
tinselnes may serve to give effect on the
stage or upon a ball-room floor, but in
daily life there is to substitute for the
charm of simplicity. A vulgar taste
is not to be disguised by gold and dia
monds. The absence of a truo taste and
real refinement of delicacy cannot be
compensated for by the possession of great
beauty or the m( a"; princely fortune.

One foreign tailor, arrested at the in

safe keeping, was the firs case on docket
this mornirrg. 1
The case of Richard Atkinson, coWd,
arrested on suspicion which case was co- -tinued
from yesterday, was j again post
poned f.r further investigation.
C. Blount, colored, arrested for rap
ping for a policeman, was discharged
the .Mayor stating that more discretion
should have been exercised hy the officer
who made the arrest. j
Kit Uugins, the inimitable Secretary
of War from the Hollow, was next ar
raigaed on the charge of assault and bat
tery upon the person of her I maj -sty,
Fanny Gore, the Queen of the same claps:c
precinct, and received a sentence of $25
fine or thirty days in the City Prison.
This is the first time that kit has come
within the purvit w of the law sufficiently
to be grabbed by the police and they
made good j the opportunity,
Fanny Gore was next arraigned upon
the charge of disordorly conduct, in that
she converted herself into a battaring rani
for the purpose of demolishing the Sec

any offence. The Mayor told them to
leave town before sundown and to "git"
as sooa as possible.
j The next case called, was T. wi
Costir, charged with forestalling the
market. The evidence failed to 'convict
and the case was dismissed.
W. E. Davis, and W. B. D avis were
also charged with the atne offence. The
evidence was conclusive thit , the
parties had (purchased before the hour
prescribed by the"ordinance,but Mr. W. E
Davis, principal defendant in the case
claimed that he was not subject to the
law as applied to hucksters that he claim
ed an inherent right as a citizen to Ibuy
and sell any article of produce, whether
from the forest or the rivers, as much . as
any merchant in the city of Wilmington
who; bought cotton by th9 million. The
defendant sta ted as a rrlatter of informa
tion for the Court that in eight months
there had been shipped from this port
9,000 pounds weight of fish alone on ice
and that if the Board of Aldermen and
liis Honor, ai Chief Executive Officer of
that Board, chose to lay an embargo on
this trade why he would have to submit
for the present. The case not coming
within t ie provisions of the ordinance
as applied to hucksters was dismissed.

The series of meetings which were in
augurated a this church aboutfive weeks
since have been continued with unabated
interest until the present time, resulting
thus far in about 180 couversionf. We
are pleased to learn that the meetings are
still in progress, with no perceptible
diminution in religious fervor. Penitents
are presenting themselves at the altar at
every meeting, asking the prayers of the
pious that they may be led to know the

he has been abl assisted by Itev. Mr.

In noticing the arrest, a few days since
of a mail agent who bad been for about a

was worked to a successful result by
Maj. Chamberlain, of the Secret Service
