GUY FAWKE8' DAY. The customary demonstrations peculiar to the anni- versary of the gunpowder plot were observed on the 5th instant in the metropolis. Apart from the usual number of ""walking guys," monster effigies were to be seen in various parts and among the subjects chosen for cari- cature the principal "actors in the Bond-street Mys- tery were conspicuous. In one instance Madame Rachel was represented in a sitting position, with Mrs. Borradaile standing cl-ose by—the hand of the former pointing to a bottle labelled Arabian Perfume." Another case was that of a most grotesque figure of a female, wearing a pork-pie hat, and attached to a broom- handle fixed at the back of the head was a large chignon, and placards around it suggested Madame Rachel will make her beautiful for ever." The owners of another figure invited the passers-by and shopkeepers to Re- member Madame Rachel." The heads of political parties were also borne about in effigy, as well as the Queen of Spain, &c.
