ousand pounds were raised, almost without an effort, and it was concluded at length, to employ this fund in enabling Miss Nightingale to establish an institution for the training of nurses. She sanctioned and accepted this trust, and has been chiefly employed ever since in labors connected with it. The Sultan of Turkey sent her a magnificent bracelet. The Queen of England gave her a cross beautifully formed, and blazing with gems. The queen invited her also to visit her in her retreat at Balmoral, and Miss Nightingale spent some days there, receiving the homage of the royal family. Not the least service which this noble lady has rendered the suffering sons of men has been the publication of the work just referred to, entitled Notes on nursing; what it is, and what it is not, --one of the very few little books of which it can be truly said that a copy ought to be in every house. In this work she gives the world, in a lively, vigorous manner, the substance of all that knowledge of

rous. It showed the world that there was nothing in royalty after all. If one Head of a State is as good as another, what becomes of birth and rank and kings and crowns and all the antiquated frippery? Beef-eaters and gentlemen-at-arms would be out of business. So the Lord Chamberlain and the Prime Minister assured the American envoy that it would be discourteous in General Grant not to attend the levee. There was no other way in which he could pay his respects to the Queen, who was at Balmoral, and Her Majesty had already, they said, invited General Grant to a ball without waiting for him to be presented. They did not remind the Minister that this courtesy is often shown to persons of distinction far below the royal grade. The courtiers were cunning and said nothing in advance about the place General Grant was to take at the levee, and the Republican envoy, unversed in such devices, doubtless supposed that his great countryman would be invited to a place at the Royal side. S
Chapter 32: Grant at Windsor. the Queen was at Balmoral when General Grant arrived in London, but soon after Her Majesty's return to Windsor a card was sent to General and Mrs. Grant with these words, partly written and partly engraved: The Lord Steward has received Her Majesty's commands to invite General and Mrs. Grant to dinner at Windsor Castle on Tuesday, 26th June, and to remain until the following day. Windsor Castle 25th June, 1877. See other side. On the other side was engraved: Buckingham Palace, 1877. Should the ladies or gentlemen to whom invitations are sent be out of town, and not expected to return in time to obey the Queen's commands on the day the invitations are for, the cards are to be brought back. This is not exactly the form in which ex-sovereigns are invited to Windsor, but it is the fashion in which Her Majesty commands the presence of her own subjects. The American Minister and Mrs. Pierrepont were summoned in precisely the
Matters in the Royal family. --A London letter to the Philadelphia Inquirer says: On the ninth of next month Queen Victoria marries her daughter, the Princess Alice, to Prince Louis of Hesse — provided the King of Belgium is well enough to be present who is to act in the place of her father. For this event the Queen leaves Balmoral next week and returns to Caborne, where the nuptials are to take place, much to the regret of the fashionable London world and the dissatisfaction of the great body of milliners and trades-people generally, with whom such occasions are usually a matter of great pecuniary importance. Some talk is to be heard in reference to the Queen's consenting to this marriage before the young lady's father has been in his grave six months, but it is understood that them are State reasons that render it desirable. Still, some people think that if the Queen can so far forget her grief in this instance; she might otherwise relax the severity of her mourning, a
een to return from her Highland residence, and come to spend her salary among the people who give it to her, lest they might come to think that it is possible to do without her. This is plain and genuine English talk for you. And springing, as it does, from the stomach or the pocket. I was curious to observe if that wily aristocracy who tremble at the muttering of these two oracles would attend to it. In fact, the papers of this morning announce the return of her most gracious Majesty from Balmoral to London, and her purchase of a thousand "shilling tickets" to the exhibition. These were probably intended as presents for some school children. And after a munificence so large and condescending, she will probably feel warranted to hasten back to Scotland. She is evidently not averse to quit her capital and aristocracy, with their Saxon rigidity, coolness, and mental barrenness, for the Celtic cordiality, graces, and humor of those mountaineers, notwithstanding their "horrid kills." o
itted to no intercourse whatever." The London Globe ridicules this kind of argument, and says there is no courtesy or discourtesy in the matter — it is all policy.--For reasons which he alone knows, the Emperor of the French confers with Mr. Slidell; for reasons which we all know, Earl Russell has not conferred with Mr. Mason. Sir. Edward Lytton Bower, during a speech at Hitchen, England, ridiculed the idea of Canada seeking a union with the United States. It is reported, says the Manchester (Eng.) Guardian, that the Great Eastern is to be sold at auction. Jamaica cotton has been spun into a fine quality of thread at a mill in Mansfield, England. The Polish insurgents are said to have been defeated with heavy loss at a place in the Government of Plock. It is reported in Paris that the Prince imperial is to be made King of Algiers, with the Duke of Malakoff for his viceroy. Queen Victoria and her daughter-in-law were merrily picnicking at Balmoral.

toast, which is ascertained to belong to a person named Warbridge, who is like a varnishing director of a babble company in London."

Lord Lyndhurst died on the morning of the 12th inst., aged 91 years. Queen Victoria and the Prince Louis, Henry, and the Princess Helena, were thrown out of their carriage near Balmoral, but sustained, fortunately only slight bruises. The carriage was thrown off its side. The accident was caused by the coachman mistaking the road. The King of the Belgians will pay a lengthened visit to Queen Victoria during the winter. It is stated in regard to the Mexican question that the Emperor Napoleon has addressed an autograph letter to the Archduke Maximilian, fully approving of his reply to the Mexican deputation.

dles are worn with plain waists; they are made of moire, corded with Russian leather, and trimmed with leather buttons. Open sleeves are always worn in full dress. Garibaldi waists are now made with yokes. For mourning costume, linen sets, narrow collars and broad cuffs, stitched with colored thread, are worn. Sleeve buttons are indispensable, jet and gold being the favorite style. Nets and fancy aprons are worn. Hoops are still in high favor. Small standing collars and fancy or black velvet neck-ties are also worn. For children's dresses, Sultan plaids are the universal style; these with Swiss waists, Brielle and postillion girdles, are novelties. Balmoral bootees, laced half way up the leg, and white petticoats, trimmed with red braid, make the little demoiselles look quite distingue. Plaid scarfs are worn by both boys and girls, tied to hang over the left shoulder, or passing through a loop at the waist in front over the shoulders and hanging down in the back.
