A COLOURED BABY SHOW. The New York Herald says: The entries for the coloured baby show, which the manager announces as a "jubilee," are already large. A visit te Gilmore's Garden, where the exhibition is to take place, showed J great preparation for the event. The centre space in tbe menagerie or the Fourth Avenue side, where the lions and panthers are now caged, is to be entirely cleared, and the animals removed, to make way for the erectien of platforms on which are to be exhibited the ebon mites, with their nurses and mothers. The attendance required of the mothers, nurses, and children is two hoars' and a half in the afternoon and the same time in the evening. Flushing, Long Island, leads off not only in the number of coloured babies entered, but in variety. Thirty come from this one town, among the lot being fone set of triplets and one oair of twins. Charles Murray, of 146, West Seventeenth-street, was the first name on the books, and he, not unreasonably, therefore, hopes to take^the first prize for "de finest child in de world. Mrs. George Hyatt enters a 3 year old, who is said to be "as white as a place of paper exactly what kind of paper is not stated. Mrs. Minnie Ray, who resides at 332, East Sixtieth-street, has a five-year-old child she enters for the fat prize. Probably the greatest curio- sity will be a set of triplets from Chicago, who have already been on exhibition in that city, the right hand of one of them from the wrist down t8 the finger tips being perfectly white. The prizes in all will, it is stated by the management, amount to about 81000.
