A NEW PURSE. The American purse has found a favourable welcome, and deservedly so, for it is very attractive in appearance, and convenient. There are two sizes, the largest 6 inches long and 2i inches wide. It resembles a long, narrow envelope, is hand- somely finished off with silver corners, and when open discloses several divisions. A cardcase in the form of a small carriage clock case is novel; it is for carrying in the carriage, and has the same fittings as the ordinary ones, with the addition of a small pincushion and mirror, but its novelty is in its shape. The new fondu cases are in untarishable worked silver, with handles, and finished with white fireproof i china souffle cases. They look like little silver, saucepans, and are a fashionable wedding present now. They are most ornamental, being highly worked. In small table trifles there is a lighter case in the semblance of a half-burnt cigar, most real in appearance; and also a miniature coffee grinder, in copper, doia £ <luty as a yard measure. The new Racmg and Cocket Match Calendar is a nice present for a gentleman, fitted into a plain leather case; the leather may be of anyone's racing or cricket club colours.
