JACKSONVILLE, SATUfcD MAY 3,-1873:
For tbe Sehitijl
I had been thinking on tho. subject
ol dress, when a rap came upon the
door, and a bundle was placcdQieforc
mc. Ah, it bad come at last tho new
suit I had been so impatient to bee.
And lo, behold ! it was a complete
Dolly Vardcn that being the allai
Madam Fashion had chosen lor the
season from the liny hat lo the gay
little boots. It looked more fit for the
dress of a China doll than tho ottt-door
costume of a practical woman. It
seemed abstirb. and with a cduicmh:
tuous toss I threw it from me. I
sought my wardrobe, chose a plain
dark dress, and donned my heaviest
boots and ample tundown. Ahihat
looked more like common sense (with
an impatient glance at Dolly Varden).
Then I failed out on a shopping expe
dition. As I entered Fourth strea
who should I meet but Mrs. Judge T.,
rigged out in all the splendor ol
fashion. I was prepared lo give her a'
warm welcome, when to my surprise
she swept by in dignified haste. (01
course a fahionablc lady could not '.be
undignified ) I entered the establish
ment of Messrs. B. & C. One of the
proprietors was chatting with somV
gay young ladies, and called to Ben to
wait on that woman. The young man
nodded, and bade me step behind the
counter and help myself. I did step
-trpped out of the door. Passing up
North btreet I met some school girls
who pinched each other, and a half
suppressed tiller greeted me. Whati
was it that excited their mirth? Why
did Mrs. T. pass by so coldly? Wlij
was the clerk so msolent ? My mental
query was interrupted; I was jarrod
rudely aside as some young men
passed by, and the low laugh aud ca'
pression reached my car "What a
dress! must be an old maid." Ah,
lhercwaslmy alisTvolmy'TIreesl I
tncntallcoinpared it to lhe 'attire ol
my lady friend. To be sure il seemed
plain. I began to feel very uncom
fortable. I hastened home. There
was my beautiful Dolly Varden. Yes,
it did really look beautiful. Never
shall I forget with what pride I
donned that suit. How I combed,
luuted and pulled my hair to arrange
the indispensable curls, till my head
was sore ! How I placed the camel's
pack, walked tho lachionable sloop,
aud drooped my hands till back and
aims ached ! At last the mirror gave
a reflection that suited my purpose,
and I went forth to renew my morn
ing's experiment. I passed Mrs. Judge
T's. She was btanding on the lront
stoop and gave mo an amazed stare.
Then, with her sweetest smile and
politest bow, she came down the
walk. O, I must come in. She
was so happy lo see mc; she was in
buch haste this morning, would I ex
cuse her? And oh! what a lowly
suit. I sought the fashionable store ol
1. it C. The yonng clerk of the morn
ing was there, all smiles and a modern
-Vpollo in politeness ''what would the
lady see," and soon tho counter is full
to overflowing. Ueturning home, gen
tlemen bowed and stepped aside, school
gitls echoed what a nice lady a real
Dolly Varden dress. Mr. Skxtixel,
we reached home convinced. What, it
our toes were sore, and back and head
ached ? Had not our fashionable dress
gained its smiles, admiration and at
tention saved us from neglect and in
sult? Yes, what were aclies and pains
to being unfashionable? Yes, Fash-
ion, I will evermore be thy faithful
devotee. And I think the lady who
can appear daily in unfashionable dress
has more daring than Napoleon Bona
parte, more moral courage than George
Washington, and deserves a medal for
heroism. Vedy Vinox.

be hanged tho 30th of May.
, It will be remembered that the de-
ceased was found in the early part of

his head and face so fearfully
and dicfijrured that it was
difGcuIt to identify him. "Wright has
.-tfiKflr since his arrest been seemingly
cool and unconcerned, talking and
laughing with any one that would con
verse with him ; but yesterday, when
tho motion by his counsel for a new
trial was disallowed, he became low
spirited. When, however, the judge
asked him if lie l?id anything to say
why judgment should not be pronounc
ed, he took pgurago and disclaimed
knowing anything about the murder,

were iu order, and of course they were
numerous. It was intimilcd that it
was a coiiFcience-Rtricken individual
who might have considered it better
lo deposit his ill gotten gains for the
completion of the Washington Monu
ment than to return it to 1'ucle Sam's
treasury-box. The excitement subsid
ed somewhat the next day when in
company with a policeman a tall, lank
and not altogether good-looking soldier
(who was noticed there the day before
in an exceedingly happy mood, singing
the yStar Spangled Banner) inquiring
after tho keeper of our George Wash-

Tho military of this city have chron
ically resented ihe withdrawal of the
management of the Indians from their
hands. Tlicy accepted tho late treach
ery of the Modocs as a complete indi
cationof the warrior's method of dis
posing of the Indian problem, and pub
lic. opinion for the time being appears
to fully sustain them. The question
whether you can put an Tudian to bet
ter nse than killing him seems now to
bo settled in the negative. The devo
tions fif the .religious portion of our
community were sadly disturbed by
njyvsjronr the Pacific Coast, and
thoughts of vengeance ddubtless

kingdom. Who shall iudro sentimnnta
such as these in an hour like the pres
ent. The nation will amply sustain
the President in his determination to
crush thc-treacherous Modocs at any
cost or effort.
A wag in the Agricultural Depart
ment circulated a call upon members
of tin Washington Light Infantry bat
talion what purported to be an orderly
xergcanis call for a full meeting at the
armor'. This, with the murder of
Gen. Canby and the peace com
missioner by the Modocs, created a
very unpleasant excitement with many
of the clerks who belong to that corps.
It was really believed lor a while that
the W. L. I. would at once be ordered
to the scat of war.
No special demonstrations arc heard
ot lately in regard to the civil servhjc;
reform. The feeling appears to be gain
ing ground that the methods of exam
inations adopted iu several of the de
partments is not such as to honestly
test the ability and qualifications of
the applicants. In the War Depart

The Conference rcsnlfed iu the uncon

two ol the worst bands of the Apache?.
This peace has been brought about
through the complete rout of the
Apaches, who havo for the last thirty
years defied the power of the Govern
ment. Over two hundred warriors
have been killed during the last cam
paign. One victory in tho fastnesses
of tho Apache country was most dis
astrous; the Indians were surprised iu
leaves at night and 41 were killed. Tho
council openea ai u:au a. m. uracky,
n Mohave, acted as interpreter. Seuz
ler, chief ot tho Touto Apaclics, with
150 men, women and children, came in
and joined tho council. The warriors
gave up their arms, and the talk began.
The Apache chiefs were tho first
speakers. They all acknowledged
their complete defeat and submission,
and desired peace. General Crook ac
cepted them in a few remarks, and tho
chiefs promised to send word to all
outside Indians in arms to come in and
surrender. Passes to protect the run
