Our lady readers will be interested to learn that there were six bridesmaids, being the five sisters of the bride, Lady Minna Charlotte, Lady Mary Adeliza, Lady Etheldreda, Lady Phillipa and Lady Ann Howard, with the youthful daughter of the bridegroom; and that they were dressed in pale blue glace silk dresses, with white cashmere mantles, and white chip bonnets plainly trimmed with white ribbons.
An Army of Observation. --The Chicago Democrat says that a movement is on foot to call a monster Republican Convention of 100,000 men, to be held at Cincinnati on the 2d of March.

omp and Parade. The incoming Administration is to be inaugurated with a pomp in an inverse ratio from the justification of the circumstances which surround it. We note below some of the items in the programme. At the suggestion of Major General Scott, the President has deputed Col. Sumner and Maj. Hunt, of the Army, to escort the new President and Commander-in-Chief of the Army to Washington. (We learn that Col. Sumner is a cousin of Charles Sumner, and both he and Major Hunt are Blace should depute a committee for any such purpose, in obedience to the spirit of our Constitution, which proclaims the civil superior to the military power, civilians, and not military men, should have been selected for the duty.

He said there was abundant evidence, to his mind, to justify him in making military preparations, though it was not of the strongest character.
