THE FASHIONS. (Correspondence of N. Y. Journal of Commerce.] Paris. August 6, 1857. Our artist* in the millinery department hate a comparative repose; the summer toilettes are *51 completed, aud the autumn fashions have not jet been displayed. The heat of our sum mers is generally over by the 15th of this month, and warmer attire it necessary for the end of the month Taffetas, woolen fabrics, thicker and richer silks, replace the muslins, bareges, ailk gauze*. Ac. Beautiful costumes hare been den*? 1 by Madam Petit, 4 Place Yendome. for the early autumnal temperature. Chine silks will be again adopted, both for walking and dinner dress. Madam P. fashions the full dress chine with three flounces, on which there is a wreath of chine flowers, woven in the silk. and f >rining a border to a band comj?osed of black and white squares. There are other robos in the same style, but without flounces, and hav ing side ornaments of a contrasting color. Plain silks of a new description will bo much worn, and the flounces will be replaced by a double skirt, the uppor one ornamented at the sides, and decorated either with a deep hem at the c<igee, or with a rich fringe. For evening cos tume, lace will replace the fringe. The la'e-'t m 'ire antiques are sprinkled with detached bouquets, on running wreaths on the watered ground. Broad silk stripes are mixed with email flowers on a plain ground Fancy but tons. lace and guipure are the usual trimmings for robes, as well as for outer scanner.ts. The autumn modes are as richly trimmed and rs heavily laden with ornamonU as wcro tho ladt winter's dubious. We thought that the excessive luxury dis played by our fino ladies would have produced, ere this, a reaction, and that simplicity in dress would again distinguish the French woman of bonton; but everything indicates, on tho con trary, for the coming season, an unusual dis play of extravagance. Jewels will form a part of every toilette, Sarrazin, 19 Boulevard St. Denis, displays a collection of buttons and small ornaments for the defcoration of demi-toiletlo, unrivaled in taste, richness and elegance. There are enameled clasps that attach the vel vet side ornaments to tho two edges of the silk skirt; the same jewels decorate the corsage and eleoves of the robe. The buttons which fasten the muslin under-sleeves nre eostly Ait>on.r and have bocorae a necessary addition to a well dressed woman's attire. The shawi-inantelet ia the outer garment preferred for the month of September, ani black silk the material gener ally employed. The shawl is surrounded by a double row of ruches; there is an interval of six inches between tho ruches. which are very full, and about tho width of a No. 12 ribbon ; at tho back of the neck there is a small pointed hoed trimmed with the ruche, and finished with a bla*k velvet bow. Striped or chocked fancy silk shawl* are much worn. Plain, Mark eilk jackets with the rkirt reaching to the knee, and wi thMt ornament, will be a costume very fre quently ad 'pte l this autumn ; this garmont is styled a pard ess us. Grey ailk dresses are trimmed with black velvet bands; sleeves are enormously wide at the bottom, gener ally out square, and open to the bend of the arm. Lignt dresses have tho sleeves formed of a pnu of the size of a short sleeve, from which fails a deep flounce, slightly gath ered, covering the elbow aad forming a point ; a band is put between the puff and flounce. ^ hiteescious will continue to be worn as a dinner toHette, during the cooler weather; ?ome are of embroidered muslin, others of laoe or organdie. The following is a youthful and beooming pattern ; it is composed of plain iuu? lin, around the throat, there is a puffing with doable hemmed and fluted heai. The lappets are trimmed with the same puffings, and the braces, before and behind, are likewise puffings. The sleevea are straight with three puffings lengthwise or at the edge of the sleeve, which is terminated by a deeply hemmed frill; all these puffings have ribbons ruu through them. Morning caps are most worn of plain or fringed rnusliu : those of neglige are of tulle, trimmed wiih ribbons, fringes, or narrow vel vets Caps for evening or dinner parties are decorated with lowers, having at tho back of the head a large bow of riblN>a with long ends. For the autumn, taffetas silk wiil be mixed with crape, taile. or straw for bonnets. White crape may be assorted with lilac gros de Na ples ; the sides of the crowu are of ailk. On the front there is a band of silk; cr'jseed by a narrow vandyked blonde, m;.ue into a ruche with a double head ; in the ccntre of the ruche is sowed a small roll of silk The curtain. <?!' crape, bordered with a bias lilac band, two and t half inches wide, and crossed by a b'onie ruche. The insido of the bonnet is decorated with small dai-ies and dark violet* ;?outside of the bonnet, a bouquet of three tulips and grass 44 Kink*' or a Millionaire.?Some ten years or more since, the late John C. Slovens ?? took it into his head'" to build " a place" at South Ainboy, in New Jersey. The site was on a bar ren, dismal-looking pine forest, oovered with sand up to one's knees The property, if wop ertv it was. belonged to the C anrl A. BaitrOud Cempany. lie proposed to purchase. Now. the corporation would ino?t cheerfully have made him a present of it, but Commodore Stock ton aud other intimate friends interfered. The Commodore said, and truly. " if j'ou trire John this sand patch, he won't touch it. He haagot some kink in his head, and let us humor it. Charge him $10.0?K> for it. though it isn't worth sixpence an acre.*' They did so; and soon the '?kink'' developed its df. The ground was filled with ugly pine trees and stumps. Mr. S. set to work clearing this nine barren in a style quite marvellous to his neighbors. He brought to his aid au enormous locomotive engine, and with double blocks aud tackle, brought down the giants of the forest in no time. It was his habit of a morning, having made fast his tackle over night to a couple of venerable stumps, to rise with the sun. set un steam on the locomo tive, and theu, '? Stand from und?.-r ' was the word. One or the other mkji( give way. and presently the doomed one sprang into the air, perhaps sixty feet, falling with a thundering crash The treak diverted him, and brought a uew excitement. After a ?o*.*ju or two, he de termined to ascertain if he could make this New Jersey Sahara " blossom like the rose." So he built himself a superb mansion house, planted several thousand peach trees, as well as graperies in all directions, constructed an artificial lake of five acres, which he stocked with fish, and laid out some five hundred acres with such incomparable skill and taste, that this favoriUi country seal of his became one of the m *t picturesque and highly cultivated in that State.?Porttr't Spirit.

A HORSE STORY. A kef per of a hotel not fifty miles from Bos ton, is, or was, a famous man for horses, owned many and was always ready for a trade in such cattle. He was sharp at a bargain, and was never known to make a move that didn't count on his side, until the following happened, that proved an exception to the rule. He always had some particular horse on hand for every particular emergency of trade, and tho adroit ness o( his operations in putting off a beast, was a subject tor delighted approval on all hands among connoisseurs of that delightful and much abused animal, the horse. No one ever traded with Staffle that did not confess himself satisfied, though satisfaction being a latitudinal word, did not always mean that the satisfaction was tho ultimate oi'happiness in the trade?liko the same term in connection with the duello. There was a jolly cobbler whose name was Wax, that occupied a small shop near the hotel, to whom Staffle was accustomed to refer in case of any stick in a transaction, and be being a disinterested man, would decide on the matter of difference, always?however, by what was deemed a strange fatality, deciding in favor of Staffle. Some, however, went so far as'to inti mate that Staffle and the cobbler had talked the matter over previously, and had certain fieri* by whieh they understood eaoh other. ^hen the stick came, then Stafflo would say, "Well, well, w can't get along any further. Now I'm willing to leave it to a third party, and as Mr. Wax, around the corner, knows the value of the borne I um swapping with you, he will be a# good and candid an arbitrator as we can find, and I guess I'll call him." Mr. Wax would accordingly come out, loather apron and all. and after looking at the matter candid ly, would decide that Staffle should receive a smart consideration as the difference in value, and this would settle it nine times in ten. One day there came along a stranger with a pretty good horse and it was once an object of ?Mafiie s interest. He examined the horso in all his points and determined to have him. The determination worked itself into a positive fever by next morning; and when the stranger's horse was Iod out to bo harnessed. Staffle stepped out and asked the owner, who was looking on, seeing that the harneu was adjusted pr?]>erly, if he didn't want to swap horses. The stranger told him that he hadn't the lex*t objection provided ho could mako a little something out of it. " Well, I'm glad to hear you say so.'1 John, bring out the red colt." The red colt was accordingly brought out. Its name was a misnomer. It was one of those animals that, having been called a colt when legitimately entitled to the appellation, had for feited it by the offence of age, and was now sailing under false colors. The stranger looked at tho " colt," and gave a whistlo as he saw tho discrepancy between the titlo and tho age. " W ell, said heat last. " how shall we trade.' What will you give to boot ?" " Boot' said Staffle. with feigned surprise, ?* tho boot is on tho other leg. I think.'* '* Ah, said the man, "well, if you think so, we will stop negotiation. Good morning." " Hold on," criod Staffle, ' bold on?don't be in such a hurry. Suppose I offor you,?sav, twentv-five dollars?how would that please you?" ?? It would not nlease me at all,'" was the re ply. " I shouldn t want to take less than eigh ty dollars." " Well," said Staffle, "1 can't do that; "but I'll tell you what I will do?I'll leave it out to somebody." "Done,"' replied the stranger; "anything for a trade Whom will you leave "it to Somebody, I hope, that knows what a good horse is. ' " Never a better, sir, " said Stafile, delighted ly ; and hero s just the man, of all others, that I would like to see, coming into the yard. Good morning. Mr. Wax." W ax nodded good morning back again, and said so, and then stood with his hands under his apron |ooking at the horses "Mr. Wax,' continued Stafflo, *' this gentle man and myself are about tniding horses, and wo want you to decide on the amount of bool that I am to pay him. \ ou know what an ex cellent horse the "colt" is. and can judge by comparing the two. what the difference should IbOi" '* Mr A\ ax are yon a good judge of horses7" Mr. M ax nodded, and looked up into his face as much as to say, " I ebould like to have you find a better one." He then proceeded gravely to examine the two horses, and af ter standing with his arms akimbo for some five minutes said? " I should think eeventy-five dollars would be about right." "^Good," said the stranger; "five dollars i?n t much in a trado. Give me seventy-five dollars and take the horse." Staffle was red as a beat, and drawing out his pocket-book, he coanted out seventy-fivo dollars, aud paid them over. The transfer was made in silence, and the stranger drove away. Alter he had gone, Staffle turned to Wax, who stood there very smilingly, saying? ..." was a of a trick you played me. ^*t was you thinking of ? Didn't you under stand the "colt" was mine?" \es, replied \\ ax ; "but you didn't sus pect that the other horse was mine, did you ? I bought him yesterday on -peculation."?Bos ton ?NiturUuy Gnzftt , ^ Stbcimes rno* Mr. Spi roeo.i.?As an illustration of the style of sermonizing which c harictcrizcB Mr. Spurgeon, the following will answer pretty well, botn in respect to matter and manner : - Now," wo quote from one of his recent sermons, " if I wished to test you all. and rniijht a?k you only one question. I would a?k this: \\ hat is your righteousness? O. lam as good as my neighbor Go along with you ? you can't be my comrade. What is i/our righ teousness?
