PAEI3 PASHIOHS FOR WAY. Among the numerous fresh and ele gant spring novelties the most conspicu ous arc the beautiful foulards for robes; it is impossible to imagine anything more charming. The material is light, and has the recommendatory property of not being easily creased. Oasaques of velvet or silk are usually worn with these skirts. The foulard is equally in request lor indoors neglige or morning walking dress. It is an elegant material for children's dresses, and fre quently employed for that purpose. Our attention has been especially at tracted by two mantelets: one styled the Faidora, 13 quite novel: to farm an idea of which you must imagioe a man telet-echarpe loosely thrown over the shoulders, and quite open on the chest. This style is doubtless very becoming with a summer dress; but when the weather is cool, and a closed mantle is required, it i3 here that the FceJora proves not only elegant but useful, as in a moment it can be converted into the lat ter. Thia is accomplished by adding a piece fitting the curve at top, and fast ened to it by a row of buttons, which are concealed under the trimming of stamped velvet with bayaderes stripes, edged with a nariow black lace. Be tween the spices of trimming a flat lac is p'accd. A chatelaine flounce, rounded at the end, finishes this beautiful rr.au telet, which will be in as great demand in the summer season as at the present time. The second shape is the mantelet echarpe, upon the foundation of which is an embroidered wreath, with appli quecs flowers of cut velvet, encircled bv a ruche of drawn gauze ribbon. The third style, much in vogue and in good taste, with bouffantes skirls, is the mantelet a rotonde, trimmed with a deep lace. With the mantelets we have described Was an assortment of robes made of the new flowered talletas, as well as bonnets caps, and coiffures for dinner and even ing dress. The mode for bonnets is now filed. Those made of silk are richly trimmed with blondes, lace, feathers or flowers. The new material in vogue is the taffetas mille rnccs or mille carreaux, of a very light brown color. The curtains are still square, aid are rather pointed in the middle. Rice straw and Leghorn are equally elegant. They are styled the Pnmelas The front is composed of a lame of from two to three inches in width, thrown back at the ears, and continuing without interruption, so as to form the curtain. The trimming inside reached round the chiu by means of the strings. Trie or nament outside consists of a feather thrown back over the head, or a wreath of fingers, the branches of which descend in a careless manner ever the shoulders.. Although ihe barques reiain their vogue, many bodies are made fitting close to the waist and plain. These are enrich.d with au infinite variety of or. naroents, consisting of silk buttons or ribbons. Floating ribbons upon the skirt, either behind or in front from the waist, or fail ing over the body, aie the mode at the present season. Skirts are ma^.c very full, and boutfantes. M*ny are fastened in the band in large round or flat plaits 1 he fronts are less full and shorter than the back breadths, * hich form a rounded train. Silk dresses are much in favor; the moire antique for full dress: the foulards for neglige. Nothing is moie recherche than a robe of moire antique with two skirts, with a single hem at the bottom of each. Body with basques, closed in front with buttons of p ssemeaterie. The sleeves, as well as the basques, are trim med with narrow braids. Alpacas arc much used for neglige dresses. Plaid popiini are also greatly in vogue. A Rion Incident.?The Buffalo Re public relates the following amusing and somewhat amusing story: 4* Meanness occasionally meets with a shock that is a lesson to all concerned, especially to the victim On the Cleveland cars, a few days since, coming to Buffalo, was a stalwart man going to New York to buy goods. Lie was not what might be called a stingy or close man, but he was one who, when there was a cent due him that swindling might deprive him of, would sacrifice a fifty dollar bill to save the copptr. Our frierd had started from Cleveland without any breakfast, and when Erie 44 hove" in sight, he gathered himself up for a general skirmish for any and all kinds of provisions. lie had a carpet-bag with him, and going into the dining-room at Erie, deposited his carpet-bag on one chair, while he took another by its side, lie was lost for about ten minutes?perfectly oblivious to any thing, save that he hail a blessed consciousness cf something rapidly fill ing wp his inwards." About this time, the landlord came round, and stopping by our friend's chair, ejaculated 44 Dol lar. sir." 44 A dol ar,' responded the eating man?44 a doMar?thought you only charged fifty cents a meal for one? eh f" 44 That'8 true," said meanness, 44 but I count your carpet-tag one, since it occupies a seat." (The table was far from being crowded.) Our friend expos tulated, but the landlord insisted, and the dollar wis reluctantly brought forth. The landlord passed on. Our friend de liberately arose, and opening his carpet bag full to its wide mouth, discoursed unto it, 6aying?44 Carpet-bag?it seems you're an individual?a human individ ual, siuce you eat?at least I've paid for you, and now you must eat"?upon which he seized everything eatable with in his reach?nnts, raisina, applet, cakes and pies?and amid the roari of tha by standers, the delight of his brother pas sengers, and the discomfiture of vb* land THE WEEKLY STAR Tin do.

THS KDUC1TI01T Of TtUkLEM IV nun The Paris correspondent of the Naw Tork Courier, in a late letter, makaa sug gest :> as which are worth attention. He says: *? In France, the ladies are educated in a manner to make them in' st agreeable in society, and while all are taught to keep the accounts of household expanses* tuany of a poorer class are taught book keeping so thoroughly as to enable them (o follow it as a profession. In almost every Paris shon. consequently, the books are kept either by the wife of the shepkeeper or by some other female em ployed for the purpose. Thus, the French system is to tesch females the useful or agreeable; acoording to their worldly condition. Our American sys tem is to teach them s little of every thing ; in fsct, we take more pains with them than with our boys, though it would eeem from the results thst hith erto our efforts have been none too well directed. W hile we have female semi naries and colleges in which degrees are conferred, and which produce shallow and discontented philosophers who im modestly take the rostium at public meetings, aud have endeavored to invade the pulpit, we have very few who can lake charge of a husband's conn ting ? room while he is engaged in the direc tion of other departments of the business. Tn Psris you buy a carpet of your up holsterer, who shows the goods, makes all the necessary explanations, and sends it home. But wheu you pay, you walk to the neat mahogany desk where madam sits enthroned behind her large folio ledger, and it is with her you regulate your account. The French tradesman's wife takes an active, useful, and appro priate part in the management of affairs: she knows to what extent the business is prosperous, and is therefore never in danger, like many American W'ves. of demanding a new carriage or other ex travagance when her husband is on the point of failing. These remarks are sug gested by an account of a meeting in t ondc.n of the friends and promoters of the 4 Hyde I'ark College for Young I a dies ' it would have been much better to have commenced, as the Kiplanders did. with common schools for girls. ' Thb Tips or Travki..?We cannot see as there is the Hast symptom of sub sidence in the immense tide of trsvel set ting westward. The trains grow longer and fuller and more of them, and the ho tels are constantly 6warroing. A queer thing this is to think of; a mild spring day in the bosom of the coun try; the grain silently growing, and no thing but the songs of birds to break the stfence ; just there, on the skirt of the woods, s cabin, with twoor three tenants; the fat er plowing on the prairie; the mother working in the garden: the baby swinging in a basket at the door. All at once a roar, like the coming of a whirl, wiud; then a slow, rumbling jar, like the mutter of thunder: then a rattle of wheels like the rushing of chariets; then a volume of cloud, like the van of the storm; and the engine plunges round the edge of the wood, with its train of car alter car, and its hundreds of people. It jars the little cabin, till the tongs grow restless in the corner. They begin to count one. two. three, and the whole is gone, the roar is murmur, the murmur subsides, and they think, ths father as he cries "Gee up ' to the halting team, and the mother as she gives the basket another swing, a village has gone by, like a cloud or a bird, and left no trace behind. * A Careful Scicide.?A farmer of Western New York, married for a second wife, a lady whose personal charms and domestic virtues, were in quite an une qual proportion. Among other freaks she had, whenever crossed io snv of her little conceits, s decided peucl>aut for suicide; st least, she ofien hinted at this, as a long contemplated remedy for ths oft-recurring ills of married life. Taking offence, on a time, at some supposed do mestic indignity, she donned her very be.it rig, and (-eekitig a convenient place for the experiment, slipped her neck iuto a noose arranged conveniently for the purpose, and thus suspended awaited fur taer developements As expected her husband soon made his appearance near the terrible scene, and was neither long nor ceremonius in relieving his beloved from her great peril. She was not so Car gone, however, as to be speechless, and exclaimed, rather spitefully, "Stephen, Stcphin, don't muss my ruffles so, for there trill be a great many in to see me to* morrow!"?Rochester Union. jy~The editress of the Ladies' Reposi tory says, " Kisses, like faces of phi losophers, vsry. Some are as hot as coal fire, some swiet as honey, some mild as milk, some tastelecs as long-drawn soda. Stolen kisses are said to have more nutmeg and cream than other sorts. As to proposed kisses they are not liked at all. A stolen kiss is the most agreea b e. We have been kissed a few times, and as we are not very old we hope to receive many more." An exchange im pertinently inquires : 44 At what hour may the lady be found in her office." JUT" The six degrees of crime are thus defined : lie who steals s million is only a financier. Who steals half a million is only a defaulter. Who steals a quarter of a million is a swindler. Who steals a hundred thousand is a rogue. Who steals fifty thousand ia a knave. Btft be ! who 8teals a pair of boots or a loaf of bread, is a scoundrel of the deepest dya, , and deserves to be lynched.
