It is a terrible thing to have too much, which the p; money. Indeed, I am not certain that it is > and old design. , „ not better to have too Kttle. The last agony j natural aud half-bleached shades, relieved by of young New York, with too much money,; soft eolors, and form a desirable class of fab- IS coaching. What ia coaching? A very TMOB for aae. ooolneea,and artistic merit, as ample thing. Men with fine horses who think there is comfort in tha old-faahioned stage coach, went to England and had buSt for them old-faahioned stage coaahee juatsoch, gentle reader^ as you saw on the roads thirty years ago, fitted out complete with boot for they have re neb the appearance of antique brocades, copied from old pictures. Linens are taking their plaoe at the bead of textile fabrics, not excepting silk, for no other ma-terial takes more variety, or ean be adapted to more purposes of utility and beauty. It baggage, aad everything elae, as it waa in the j rivals brocade in lustra, and cotton ha service, days when coaches, or stages as we coll them, j while it is now made to leeembteweoi i n fin-were the only means 01 oonveyanoa. They put to them four blooded horses, and they put themselves in the uniforms of drivers, and they load on the roof all their lady friends, and they drive them. That it all i what is worth every other consideration, there is about it. It means that a eartain ! wholesome, as they will not ataorh dust and number of rich young men choota to trana- j ba4 odors as reps and btoeatoH* alw^r» do. form themselves into stage driven. Then ia i The Venetian carpets, largely mads at flax a n ish and comfort. The heavy furniture bro-cades and tapestries, used in art furnishings, which look like silk and woolen, are, one is surprised to learn, at linafc, dnnbte, and a club of these amiable lunatics in New York, the head lunatic beiag youug Jemea Gordeu Bennett, the proprietor of tha Herald. Last Saturday the club made its fint panda. Seven stage coaches, rather more costly in style than those you used to see on your roads, drove ap in front of the Union Leagne Club, seven very rich young men habited as coachmen took their places on the seven boxes, forty-five very rich, and not at all beautiful young ladies mounted the roofs, and with the ntmdat solemnity the cortege drove o f , np Fifth av-enue to the park, and back again. The streets were lined with people to see thia proeeasioa, from Madison square all the way to the park; and if the object of tha panda waa to a t t n e t attention* the gentlemen stage-driven may be congntalated. But isn't it queer thai in the day of steam men should attempt so absurd a handsome as the choicest patterns of brussels, and wear wonderfully, while they are clean and sweet longer than wool carpets oaa. Fine mixed cotton and linen lawns aie sold at tha low price of 30 oents a yard, and make moat comfortable underwear for summer, while for dresaea they do up like new every time they pass through tbe kmndraoa'a hands. asuozocB. Moody and Sankey have gone, and the ministers of the oity ohnrches have undoBtak-en. to carry on the work that they began. That ia to say, they are endeavoring to run revivals on thai* own hook, ia the a m e man-ner that the evangelists did. They have em-ployed better singers than Sankey, to sing Sankey's songs, and as they all think they are better orators than Moody, they believed they oould carry on the wort better than did these ? Tha. -men. . They have all toiled. The f Act ia they h e f s ^ h t b a * eoaqhaaara the beat that W7 pnach better than Moody, and their paid money buy, and they are groomed ton degtee that is almost painful. By the way, the absurd English fashion of cutting the toil of a hone into the shape of a elub, baa bean adopted here. Pray let it be confined to Naw York, for it is as ugly aa sin. POLITICAL. The democntie state convention did two foolish things, viz :—It endorsed Samuel J. Tilden and snubbed John MorriBsey. The convention by its acts made it a oertainity. that every republican in the conntiy will vote hi$ straight ticket, no matter, how mock he may have been disposed to bolt. For Tam-many— John Eelley's Tammany—ran tbe ma-chine from, from first to la«t. ^oha Morria-sey made a vigorous fight, bnt ha WBB routed, hone, foot, and dngoona, and theEellay waa left in complete possession of the flell. Til-den w endorsed, and if. he wina the nomina-tion he goes before the people as the nominee of the most villain oualy corrupt organisation that eyer existed. lie goto ipto the oanvaa* as the eepecial Creature of the old Tammany Bing reorganized—the Tweeds' and Connol-lys' under other name* I have no especial admiration for John Morriseey, but I must say that be'did make a good fight, and as ap-parently honest one, against these villains. But Tilden's money, and the Tammany orga-nization were too much for him, and down he went. The decent portion of the democracy of New York a n very aore over the result, and with a good candidate tbe republioana can easily carry the atate. Tammany has re-covered from its defeat laat toll, and is arro-gant as ever. Let the Cincinnati convention give the republicans a good candidate, andl#t the St. Louis convention ^omjaate Tilden, and we can cany New) York with perfect ease. THE CHHIDB3EX'S OFZBA, "in aid of the centennial," stares one at head of every pleasant project now-a-days, and poo-pie a n pretty well pillaged on .one ptotext o? another. The.last was the very pretty spec-tacle of "Cinderella" at the Academy of Music, given by tAro hundred and fifty chil-dren of fashionable families. Tableaux from Mother Goon followed, aad it was a pretty Bight, tha curled darlings, with flowing flossy hair, and cloudy/white eilver-epenglad dreasee, With ganay wings andfwanda aa fairiaa, and all the romantic Mother Gooe? people—Be l Biding Hood with her basket,|the Sleeping Beauty and the Enonanted Prince; and it won plenty of oomplipaenta and plenty of dol-l a n from the admiring familiea and friends who filled the house. Perhape tha best fan the next day, when the young performen all went down to Mora'a, tha Spanish artist who takes the beauties And oetebritiea of the stage with such delioaoy, t o be photographed in ooBtnma. i orowd stood about tha an-trancetothc gallery on Broadway for bean, t o c a t e h s glimpse of each dad little prison, figuw aa it fled fwan nmmaBaSs AspriafA u the steps. ThAbcgraawwths btndmmmki my eyes. Then was oc satin and silver court dreaa, whose mother gnve, sweet Air. Tha «MA had marvelous, deliosto aomptexiona- LBB'Bjtoo delicate for pleasuze; and, with their angera may sing-better than Sankey, bat it don't amount to a straw. They havA not tha sonl in it that the evangelists had, and the soul i s what counts. e Moody and Sankey were to earnest, they behave in what they am do-ing, and they wsaa sneoessfuL They ago-nised; they never ate or slept while at their work, and have no dap-trap or nonsense about it, they d i d good everywhere; revivals by machinery won't do, and never did and never will. It won't anawer to pat an opera ainger in the plaoe of Sankey, for wide he may be a bettor ainger than Sankey, he will sing it as an o p e n singer, and sot as s man who feels that he if responsible for tha salva-tion of men. It is sat, bat it is true that with the going of tha avsngdiste, the interest in religious matters in tbe d t y ia g«me. New Yssk will have to go en in ite sin till they or amae other equally aedoos men oome to lift it o a t is as dull as it can be. There is Kttt tirade going, rents are falling day by day, thousands upon thousands w e out of employment, and the outlook ia gieosny.

( t e tha oeoaBOB of Maasn. Moody and Sankey'avisit to Liverpool, Mr. Moody spent BOOM tirin* in answering written questions. Among them Wen tin following : "What woold yoo advise a niatdsi ta do with a member of his ohonh who ia addiotod drink r love, and seek to win him from it, to atesng ; "Well, the minister shonld to him in and let tha minister himself set the example by giving up the aae of intoxicating liquors."
