The opening of milliner? will not take place much before the ,20th. but come idea of the styles that may prevail, may he obtained by l?*>king at tho French import ft lions They ex hibit a perceptible enlargement over the face, while the sloping crown, descending still more, is reduced almost to a nonentity. There are sign*. however, of a revival of the straight orowns. The fall trimmings, for bonnets worn on the promenade, consist of ribbons and feath ers, chiefly the latter, all of the same color with the bonnet. The lace called ?? l'lmperatrice," resembling the trimming for mantillas, which originated last season, promises to be much in ,*Ior- ** kro*D. b'ue. or green, in (lif erent shades, and the bonuet made of this material is decorated with ostrich pluinesof the tame color, tipped with marabout, the trim ming put far in front?where thero is a fall of lace?so as to dispense with any for the inside, except ruohe of illusion. A bonnet of dark silk, covered with delicate chenille netting, and trimmed with ends of chenillc and flowers, has also been much admired. But tho various styles will require further description. "1 tie taste in bijouterie is decidodlv toward a more lavish expenditure in the article. We have seen a lady's white wrist perfectly loaded with bracelets, each of which, had it been iron instead of gold, would have been complained of as a grievous fjtter The huge links of man acles were there, but the yellow tint substituted compla.-ency for repining. A bridal s?-r of jewelry has been on exhibition here, within a fortnight, composed of diamonds of the purest water, mingled with costly pearls, and consist ing, besides bracelet, brooch, uccklao, Ac., of *? agrafes." for looping up th?* lace skirt, formed of a rieh cluster of gems This splendid sot is of the rarest workmanship, and probablv costs a hundred thousand dollars A nice little for* tune for a bride to ^ive away with her farr selffor the ley I decision of some judge, we do not remember where, has settled that a life's ornaments belong to her husband. The fashion of setting diamonds in black enamel has become genera!, especially among ladies not very you'htul. A bracelet of these magnificent gems, precisely like one worn by the Empress hug-jie, has be*n exhibited at the store where it is for sale.

Of this kind id the wreath made fir Madame La Grange?a double wreath of laurel leaves, studded with acorns?the price of which was five hundred dollars. The del icate flower clusters and wrought ornaments of coral. so much worn with light dresses durin<? the summer, will probably give place to heavier ornaments as the season advances. OPERA CLOAKS. The approach or the Oj>era sea?on. which is expected to be one of unusual brilliancy, has caused the modistes to have in readiness some new and beautiful opera cloaks. One is rut like a small shawl, the circle, which is wide from the shoulder, forming a sleeve, the lower part so hollowed as to form two points, to which tassels are attached. The nock has a cord and tassels, and hoods are a universal appendagfe: Another, nearly of the saino shape, ha- wide sleeves inserted. It is of fine white cashmere, bordered deeply with silver plush, with heavy chenille tassels depending from the sleeves, which are also trimmed with plush The ouilt ed lining is of cherry colored satin. The centre of the hood is quilted with white satin, embroid ered with silver plush, and finished with che nille tassels The hat is of rico straw, bordered with a fall of lace and trimmed with a cherry colored plume, and the strings of white taffeta are bordered with cherry velvet an inch wide. In this elegant oostume the wiles of coquetrv may be as perilous as in a ball room. shawls axd vamtles. But few of the new styles have as yet been ' shown to the public. Among these, wc notice ! one just imported from Paris It is of the cir- ! euiar shape, and folds over the arm like a wide sleeve. The material is a line drab plush of exquisite quality, varied by wide stripes of plaid plush in very gay colors ; the stripes run ning straight up and down, and alternating with equal widths of the drab, with borders of plaid uown the fronts, wliicb are brace J aero** with straps and buttons. The hood is made like a handkerchief, the cover folded square across, ornamented at the side by corners of plaid plush, and finished with rich tassels to Correspond. It is confined at the nc<-k with cord and tassels, which may be slipped so us to allow it to full partlr off the shoulders. and dis play the eieg*iice of the drea* beneath. The fashion of having the walking dress and pardessui of the same material and color has been gradually gaining gr< und But when the season is at its height this will not generally prevail. Plush and chenille will be favorite materials for the ground work as well as for the trimmings of garments. A graceful and stynsh mantilla for this month is a shawl com posed of a "m ill square of black cashmere fold ed over and bordered with crimson c.isbmcre which is edged with deep lace. " The Shetland has been lately introduced It netted by hand, of fine woollen yarn, of white or some subdual color, and the lower part pres ints the apj*arance of a circular chenille shawl iu chiatx pattern, with black border aud fringe It is very beautiful, and the plush, whi?h is usually in a .ariety of bright colors, form* a rich bor>i?r to tho central of lesx prominent tint A new woollen shawl is so arranged as to be capable of folding into three different sty.es, including a stella and a plain centre and a plaid corner folded over. Drt Goons.?The bayadere siks of the new en styles are imported in "solid" eolors. which are pushing out the chene and embossed ?trin< a of last -cason Light colored robes are brocaded in bayadere strips of the width and pattern of a flounce, of the same shade as the robe but ?o exquisitely wrought as to stand out with dis tinct effect. I n other sty ies the stripes are nar rower?some two inches wide?and composed of fine corded satin, alternnvd *?ith equal spaces ot plain silk The patterns for flounced robes are chiefly designed in velvet?eoiuprisin* un immense variety of styles?with suj-erb combi n ?lions of silk and velvet. The floaers are of ten in clusters, surrounded by a Sue tracery of fo.iage, A beautiful novelty in the way of or nament to the sides of the tkirts of pliin silk dresses is made ot chenille, formed into a side stripe of flowers and foliage, and adaptod to fancy eolors. This would bes a pretty evening costume, with a berthe lor the low-n*cked waist jfoire antique, iu dark brown, blue and drab, will be more worn this fall, and may he ren dered m .re dressy by a si Jo stripe of fan<-y plaid Besides the>e aud plain taffetas, which u.-t rather expensive, dresses of small che-kered silk, black ??r brown and white, are striped at the sides with bright plaid ribbon?the waist and sleeves trimiuod to eorrespond Valencias, too. have b?-en imposed in great variety.

S-xne of the widest stripes are de signed in large palm leaf patterns, with a snakier one for the waist and sleeves. The pyramid quwie. or side stripe in robes is devel oped however most elegantly in rich heavy taffetas, in snades of brown, blue and purple. Ihe stripe is block velvet wrought in leives and flowers, sometimes with a scroll or vine border, or an arabesqu. patu.rn. A narrow trimming of the nam* material accompanies x? f"r the wsist *nd These styles will be sought with avidity, while the lluuneed robes of whuh thevare established the formidable rivals, will continue to be in ex tensive d?maud. They are too graceful to be abandoned. 11^ ~on:.~l?o*|y wiids tbe Kuirk^ilioi kernu i(? ? ?riptl >n U?I the Huwj <1 I'ayue M< n lti?

A Tennessee planter lately visited New Orleans, an j .ntopj>o?l Ht (be St. Churlcd Hotel, and in the course of a week created a prodigious sensation He was a stout, plain baking old fellow, and on the trip down from Memphis contrived to eet very drunk, so that from the time he ltnded in the city until he left he carried on like a crazy utt>in. paying fifty or a huudred times tho value h,? bought He gave a colored barber f20 for shaveing him and refused to take any change; Paid half a dollar for a glass of li quor declined the change and gave the bar keej^r $2rt additional as a free gift. On the latter being rejected, the planter crumpled up the bill, threw if behind the counter, and walked off :n a rage. He had all his pockets stuffed with bank notes of tho denominations of hun dreds, fifties and twenties, which he threw awav recklessly. If he ran against a person he dashed a iiandtul < f bills in his face. Not satisfied with ltii?; he afterwards paraded about with a linen b.ig so full of silver that it bent him down to carry it. Wherever he had a chance, he paid for drinks. ?c., with a handful of half dollars After a three days' U>ur of this description he paeked up and traveled back to Tennessee, where he belonged.
