Miscellaneous Observations.

Several new shapes have been introduced in chips, straws, and Leghorns; split straws are preferred. Fancy feathers, particularly the imitation of the Indian plume, are much worn. Long pelisses seem generally to have, given way to, short ones, trimmed with lace or fur. The favourite colours are brown, purple, lilac, yellow, and scarlet.
