Female Uniform. — The Grand Duchess and the Margravine of Baden have taken upon themselves to attempt what no mortal has yet been able to achieve—a regulation of dress for ladies. They propose what they call a national costume, con- sisting of a white robe of any materials, except velvet or satin, and a g-irdle of red velvet, with a straight border esnbroidered in gold, the two extremities of which, fringed with gold, are to meet on the left side. The head-dress, from which feathers and flowers are banished, is to consist of a ribbon of red silh-, or velvet, with a gold border, passed into the hair. In tliisd-ress, the Duchess and Margravine say they shall ap- pear at the opening of a new Museum, where it is intended to hold public sittings; and they pro- mise themselves, "that the uniformity and noble simplicity of this dress will have the happiest, influence, balls." To this which is announced" without any idea of con- straint," the Ladies of Carlstuhe, and scveial places in the neighbourhood, have given their consent.

The box was secured by King's Head, Newport, to -o by the man. It reached Mr. Fothergill, as directed. On opening it, it only contained a letter. A witness stated, that the prisoner had confessed being concerned in the robbery, and that he was instigated to it by an old woman. After the robbery was committed he endeavoured to get the parcel back, when (here was only 201. taken out of it, but Jane Hickman would not let him. The prisoners have lately b,een taken into custody, in consequence of some notes in the stolen parcel having been pas- sed at shops in Londou, for goods, and which were yesterday identified as part of the stolen property.
