FASHIONS FOR MAY. [From LeFollet ] Materials Pt spring ?Irenes are now appear ing in variety. e have already spoken r ict a*1 ^eUf in tWo light shades, separa .? .7 Jth"!.ada of satin ; these, a* well as houneed chine taffetas, and spring moires with three or four flounces, will be the deoided tnvorites of the prwut season. Poplins, also, citbar plain, jaspees, or chines, will be very fashionable; blue, light green, pink and various snade* of gray, being the principal colors now w<-?rn. Although there has lately been a cru swde against basques, they are still triumph ant ; they are worn either short or deep, but nwre generally the latter. They are variously trimmed?ruches plaitings, gauffered ribbons, and passementeries are all much used. Dresses without basques, however, are more and more ?">eQ in evomng toilet The body is frequently rnsde pointed on the hips, as well as before and [?enind ; and the double skirt is trimmed with pink ruche*. or with one or two rows of ribbon, plaited a la Tieijle. The same trimming ia also placed on the high body, or round the berthe, w ich is slightly pointed before and behind. , h*B lhe body is with basaues, the snmc plait ing i? arrange! ea breteflea reaching to the waist behind, and united by a atrap at front, having th? appearance of a square-cut body, {?omo double skirts are ornamented by ruches, ?>r s^mo other fancy trimmings, placed down the taia?; in which caw they arc finished by a sim pl j hem only. They have one advantage over u 'on^w, in that Cher employ let* material. A wide fringe forms a very elegant trimming; it is placed exclusively on the upper skirt. In no part of the toilette is there greater va riety than in the form of sleeves The pagoda i.reve and Juive shapes are still worn, others "r7.TIlpoSed ?f tbre? P?ff?, or of two with a trill below. A more dressy sleeve is arranged in flur plait# nearly from the armhole to the elbow; sometimes a row of buttons is placed on each Plait, or one button only at the termina tion of the plait. Below the elbow the sleeve I f^rrns a Dagoda. cut up in front of the arm, I med with white silk, and trimmed round the ! " ii l w'*b a plaited white ribbon. With respect to mantles there is some indoci- , *ion between the large and small ; the latter, however, appears more suitable for summer wear. Etolles of blonde, guipure, or black lace, are very frequently placed on the erowns of bon ?e.s of lace or tulle, the oolor of the bonnet, are more than ever worn, aa are also those of white tulle. In one of our most fashionable houses we : have just seen some very elegant toilettes. 'hie was a dress of China rose taffeta* in I large checks, and in the centre of each a bou quet of light brown and white chine. The l?>dy wad not quite high, showing a guim e en- I Urely eoinposed of bouillonnes ot tulle and was trimmed round the top with a ribbon half 1 pink and half light brown, plaited a la rieille. iir/iTJT ner7 Uf>en,' "\\h ****** ?' the under reeves bouillonufcj of tulle, covered by a check w..rk of nbbou to match that round the top of tae body. * We also very much admired an English green \ r7"i rF9 WXlh tT\8kirtJ- tb? upi?er one X'rdered by a broad band 01 myrtle green, edged on each side by a narrow ruche of black I?w. The light body was without barque*, bottomed at front, and ornamented by a Ila jhael berthe. formed of a band of myrtle irrccn ??Jged to match that on the skirt. The body was trimmed bv brandebourgs of black lace ruehea both in the front and on the b*ek With 1 V^.u0 bevw?? a black taffetas shawl, cov ered with embroidery it. narrow braid, and sur rounded by a broad black lace; and a crinoline howaet. trimmed^ with a wreath of feathers, shaded from bright green to myrtle green. Among the evening droeses we very much ad mired the two following: The first wa* a dress of Nakara velvet, with rery low body, the drapery being held on each ?Wider by noeuds and pendants formed of diamonds.

[From the Liverpool Times, May 2 J The town of Liverpool ha* been more than or dinarily excited thin week by the rivalry of two competing companies of equestrian*, contending for the support of the lieges?an English and an American company?and to each a handsome share of support has been extended. Our trans Atlantic cousins do everything on a grand scale, and in what is called 44 eo-a- b?*adedness" they far transcend the more sooer realizations of the race from which they sprung. No stronger proof of the fact need be cited than these dissimilar cir cus exploits, with which public attention has been occupied during the last few days. The English establishment in Dale street, like our own " tight little island," is substantial rath er than showy?a building which It required some wteks to erect, and toTake down whicn will demand considerable time and labor. The per formances are, like the building, good and inter esting?everything clean, neat ana satisfactory as regards taste ana arrangement. The American tent, of enormous capacity, and capable of accom modating 5.0U0 p??>ple, Is made of a material which, resisting the rain, can be pulled to pieces and rolled up in an hour or two. ready for expan sion again when necessity requires it. It seems to realize life in the States, wnere everything is mad* to bend to the necessities of the hour, and administer to as much animal enjoyment *0 pos sible in the shortest imaginable time. The day preceding the American display the Englishman challenged the attention of the pop ulace by his team of eight horses, t>eautiful cream colored animals, which he held admirably in hand ; and he cracked his whip i?ver their glossy backs in a manner which seemed to please ana inspirit rather than annoy the b"utes. It was an admirable exhibition of street driving. His mu sicians and equestrians too, following, reflected credit on the troupe, and showed that equestrian ism, when spiriti dly conducted, can Hud deccnt | people to follow it as a profession. The American procession was on a larger scale ?forty line c:eam colored horses, four abreast, with a chariot rer, who wore rather an auxiona ap pearance. He did not use the whip?so far. at l?*ast, as we co it Id perceive?and It was said that he could only check the movements of his lead ers and wheelers There were men on each side of the hoises conducting them?an indispensable precaution under the circumstances, but which seemed rather to disappoint the public, which always delights in the marvellous. Then came the Iiidian wigwam, driven bv a negro, and other illustrations mcidental to the I'nlted State", which the other establishment did not attempt to rival. We never remember the streets so densely crowded as they were on Thursday to witness the American display, and to such an extent was this carried that, for some hours, the ordinary busi ness of the town might be said to be actually sus pended We are glad 'hat onr townsmen have given these clever and spirited stronger* so hearty a welcome, for the risk and cost of importing an equestrian troupe of this extent from the Western shores of the Atlantic must be serious. But we allude to the subject here mainly for the purpose of showing how closely the character of the twj nations is reflected in these rival displays?if we had time and space at our command to perfect the analogy. Spealclng for ourselves, we think that the pri'ucipal charm of this description of enter tainment consists in raising that noble domestic animal, th* horse, by a high course of training, to the dignity of a rational Wing, and, on the con trary. making man, by a similar process, rival In strength and agility the attributes of the horse. Practical SKRSfo*.?Colored ministers often excel in those qualities in which many of their white brethren are especially deficient?pungen cy and directness. The following sketch of a sermon, for whose accuracy the editor of an ex change gives his personal voucher, is a good il lustration of these important qualities : Dropping into an Arriean meeting-house In the outskirts or the city, we found the sermon just commenced. The topic seemed to be the depra vity of the human heart, and the sable divine thus illustrated his argument: 4* Bredren, when 1 w;is in Virginia one day. de ole woman's kitchen table got broke, an' f was ! sent into de woods to cut a tree to make a new leaf for it. So I took an ax on de shoulder, aud 1 wandered into de depth of de forest. 44 All nature was as beautiful as a lady going to de wedding. D? leave* glistened on da maple trees like new quarter dollars in de missionary box ; de sun shone as brilliant, and nature looked as gay as a buck rabbit in a parsley garden, and de little bell round de old sheep's neck tinkled softly arid musically in the distance. "I spied a tree suitable for de purpo*e.and rais ed de ax to cut Into de trunk. Itwasfa beautiful tree! De branch** reached to de four corners oh de earth, an' raise up so high In de air above, an' de sqnir'ls bop about in de liml<slike Lttleangels ' flopping their wings In the kingdom ob heaven. > Dat tree war full ob promise my friends, jest like a great many of you. ''Den I cut into de trunk, and made de chips fly lik" de mighty scales dropping from Paul's eye*. Two. three cut I gave dat tree, and alas, it was hollow in de butt : 44 Dat tree was much like you. my friends? fall of promise outside, but holler In de butt!M The groins from the amen corner of the room were truly contrite and aff^cting;but we will ven ture a small wag^r that that was the most practi cal sermon preached in the city, on that day at least. _ Co??i*vi>RC*8.?44 Talking of conundrums," said Old Hurricane, stretching himself all over Social Hall, ami sending out one of those mighty putt* <>f Havana smoke which had given him his name, "can any of you tell me wheu a ship may be said to be in love ?" ?4 1 can tell you?I can," snapped ont Little Turtle. '-It* when she wants to be manned." ??Just missed it," ijuoth Old Hurricane, "by /i mile and a half. Try it again. Who speaks | fl'st ?" ??I do, secondly," answered Lemons. 14 It is j when she wants a mate." "Not coriect," replied Hurricane. "Theque* tion is still open." '?When she's a ship of great size," (sighs,) modestlv propounded Mr Smoothly. "No," replied Hurricane. * "When she's tind'r to a mi* of try," said the Colonel, regarding the reflection of his face in his boot. ??Everthing but correct," responded Old Hurri cane." ??When she's struck aback by a heavy swell," suggested Starlight. "Not as yet," said Hurricane. "Come, hurry t along " ??When she makes muck of a fait tailor.'" cried hinashpipos. Here there was a greet groan, and Smashpipes was thrown out the window. When peace waj restored, Old Hurricane "pro pelled" ag a n : "You might have said, 'when she hugs the : wind.' or 'when she run* d?wu after a smack,' | or *when she's after a eouNo.t,' or something <>f | mat sort, but it wouldn't have lieen right. The I real solution is this?when she's attached to a ke.-y.'" i Yaxkzb Bltxdkr ?Though often forewarned not to depend in France upon the French learned at school, I do not think that the very first intro duction to the streets of Paris, It would lead to a singular blunder. On Saturday, after a late sleep, after our later than midnight ride. I sallied out to find the American Minister. 1 learned where his office was by the directory, started otf, found the street and the number as I thought, rang, wasush ? red into a well furnished room, where a gentle m inly looking mail was seated, who addressed me in French 1 essayed my French; "oul out. oui, tnousieru." he quickly answered. An official j wascalled, and I was hurried down a long gal- I lerv. beginlng now to think that our plain Virgin- I ia Mason was very formal, when a door was open*d and 1 entered, and to my own amazement about two hundred female fares in night caps,all arranged along In beds, met my gaze. It appears he too* me for a medical student, recommended by the American Minister, and here I was in the heart of one of the largest hospitals in Paris. My astonishment explained the case to the attendant and a few doors off, I found the place of the Auierican Legation. So much forbad French.? Correspondence of tke Charleston Adcoeatt.
