Fashion notes have been delayed on
account of the great desiie to get the
cream of the Parisian styles. The la
test aieto be seen in the trousseau of a
' cousin of the Prince de Von Puliskz
ditclifowskiiilti. All Paris is on the
qui vh'f over the approaching nuptials.
The plivilege of seeing the elegant
trousseau was granted me as I was a
corresponil"iit of the OitKtio.v sjcofr.
How to begin a description of this
grand conception of the celebrated, ar
tist, Worth, is puzzling. To begin:
The shirt is fastened at the neck with
an elastic band. This band is the very
latest innovation, and provides swell
ing room for aristrocratic indigestion
as well as shrinkage fioin pioiw amia
bility. His vests are of tin-most deli
cate shades of satin, hand-painted in
: figures of cute looking little pigs, geese
and glasses of champagne. There is
l one complete charcoal suit, all in black.
The skirt of the coat is so arranged
that it will give the usual "divine wave."
There is one unique suit called "Fath
er Washington Combination" coat,
vest and pantaloons all in one. The
vest and pantaloons form one long
garment. The coat is represented by
two small haud-painted laps attached
to this elegant stilt. It is made of tea
gicen surah silk. The next is an op
era suit of the most delicate pink satin
do Lyons, decollate in the legs and
neck. The bathing suit is fashioned
like a fish; is water proof and covered
with shining silver scales. When he
gets into it and launches into the sea.
he looks tor the world like the whale
that swallowed Jonah. His luidal suit
is ,t bcjnu.de of heavy satin in pearl
white. The coat is long, daw-hum-
mcr, hand-painted in ntmicrons
.enpids, standing on their heads,
queue is" of the lovely Titian
and is linked with elastic so as to elon
gate when it gets a pull. His bridal
dickey is of superb Duchess lace. His
fan is an immense peacock's tail fin
ished with. in orange-colored boa. His
pantaloons are decollate at the ankles,
grass blue, and apron fiont. His boots
are rose-colored satin, except at' the
heel and toe, These are of the clearest
glass, which give the observer a glimpse
of his delicate heels mini toes which are
while and colored with cochineal. His
hat is an immense poppy, upon which
a large yellow-jacket, reposes. His
handkerchiefs are yellow satin and are
scented with the latest of perfumes
citbliuiic tlr httilloii, or in plain Knglish,
boiled cabbage. Tin wedding cards
are the size ol a ledger, with an im
mence plum cuke in one corner and a
roast pig in the opposite.

and she will be so busy in preparations
and bridal tours that there will be no

Washington, April S, 1SS7.
It looks very much as if the name of
Mr. Whitnev will live in history as the
"Naval Secretary." lie has just taken
another step towards the impiovc incut
and building ip of the navy. This was
the sending forth of an announcement
inviting sealed proposals from the ship
builders of the United States fir the
building of five nt w iron vessels. All
Anicticans with yards cquiped can
compete. Speed is an important con
sideration, and extra premium for ex
tra quarter knots is guaranteed con
tractors. Three of the vessels are to be cruis
ers and must be completed within two
years. The others are to be gun-boats
and must be completed within a yeai
and a half. It is also rrquired that one
of the vessels shall be built on or near
the coast of the Pacific ocean, one of
them mi or near the coast of the Gulf
of Mexico, and two of them on or near
the coast of the Atlantic ocean.
There has been a good deal ol com
ment here in regard to the withdrawal
from the National Diill, which takes
place next month, of two prominent
Alabama companies the "true blues"
and the "greys," because some colored
militia will participate in the contest.
It is argued by the managers of the
coining event that since it is to be a
National Encampment and Drill, they
have no right, civil, military or moral,
to exclude regularly organized soldiery
on account of their color. The drill
has the recognition of the government,
in this sense is a national iiflair, and is
simply intended to illustrate the pro
ficiency of volunteer soldiery in the
munucl of arms and military maneu
vers. The social aspects of the occa
sion are quite another thing. Soldiers
who camp on the same field are not
obliged to put up at thesnme hotel, or
eat at the same table. As citizens they
are still priviliged to select their own
associates. Colored troops took part
in President Cleveland's inauguration,
they were assigned a place in the cere
monies attending the laying of the cor
ner sloue of the city hall at Virginia's
capitol. The managing committee o
tin; national drill, which is composed
almost exclusively of democrats and
southern men, did not hesitate to ad
mit the two colored companies which
applied for entry. And, indeed, it is
not quite clear why the militia system
of the country is in any more danger
from the colored clement, which is
lawfully recognized in its organization,
than is the regular army, which inlists
colored men in its service and converts
them into soldiers.
The first day that the Inter-State
Commerce Commission was empow
ered to act judicially, which was on
Tuesday (the day that tho law went
into ell'ccl) it selected permanent olliee
quarters. The next day it announced
its lirst odicial act the suspension of
the "long and short haul" clause, as
alfcctiug the entire Southern Uaihvay
and Steamship Association. It is sus
pended for a period not to exceed nine
ty days, and is subject to revocation at
any time by the coinniisnion. . The
Washington home of the new commiss
ion is in a beautiful new building with
white inurhle front, recently erected hy
the Ilultiniore Sun coinpiiny. Ench
commissioner will have a spacious
apartment there to himself.. Applica
tions for appointments under the com
mission continue to come in hy every
mail. One applicant writer that he is
about to take a pleasure trip to Eu
rope, and that should the commission
require bin services before the date
fixed for his return they nuiy cable
him at his expense.
When the champion pugilist of the
world visited the white hotiso one day
this week, it is alleged that in an un
guarded moment lie gave expression
to the opinion that a series of Turkish
baths would improve the president's
health. It was fortunate for the mus
cle developer that he did not belong to
the Medical Association of the Dis
trict of Columbia, or he would bo inves
tigated for expressing sentiments: so
in conflict with the exulted "ethicw" of
tho medicul society. This is in connec
