THE FASinONS. [Correspondence of N. Y. Journal of Commerce.] Paris, August 24tb. 1S57. The past fortnight has been one of great ac tivity and busy preparation among all classes in Paris. The inauguration of the splendid Palace of the Louvre?the completion of which will furnish a brilliant page in the history of the Emperor Napoleon III ?the festivities with which the tete of the Emperor was cele brated. both at the Tuileries and in the streets of the capital, have furnished to milliners and mantua-makers a pressure of work almost equalling the busy times of the New Year and the Carnival. At the ceremony of the inauguration we no ticed beautiful white robes, from the establish ment of Madame Fauvet, 4 Rue du Menars composed of white muslin and lace. The cor _ ^ges are low. aud arc- covered with a fichu of rich laee, haviug pufiings of muslin, through which are run ribbons. The skirts are covered with laoe and muslin flounces, sewed on alter nately. White muslin, either embroidered or covered with lace trimmings, has been the most fashionable style of toilet during the summer, and will continue to be worn for dinner arid evening owtumo this autumn and winter. The while uiusliu is frequently decorated with vel vet ribbon of a dart color, or black, and if al ways accompanied by a fichu composed of mm lin and lace, trimmed to match the dress. Tho white moiro antique, covered with largo di? tachod boquets ot bright colored flowers, will boa favorite dross for the cooler weather ; the ?kiyt is plain, very full and long, forming a short train behind, and trimmed up the sides with ruches ot white silk ribbon; the corsago may be either high necked, with basques and trimmed with rucfiea, or plain, low a point and covered by a rich lace Marie Antoinette fichu. Long, plain jackets, of the same tissuo as the rob*, forms a favorite street attire; the skirts ot the jacket reach below the knee. Wo are told that the plain jackct and the burnous will be the out-door garments most in vogue for the Ooming season. The burnouse will be composed of plain velvet or of moire antique. The Pamela, the Lorraine and the Patent bounet*. as made by Madame Alphonsine. 12 P?ue du llelder. are all becoming coiffures. The Pamela is a mixture ot hair aud straw, for the autumn of a dark color, brown or grey. A blue ribbon reaches from tho edge of tho front to the curtain ; this ribbon supports loops aud ends of blue ribbon, arranged so as to form a Greek knot. At tho edge ot the front there is a black lace ; a bow ot blue ribbon iuside. On the Lorraine bonnet, the trimming consists of black velvet mixed with a bunch of wheat ears in st;aw. On grey autumn straws a ribbon of the same color ends in two bow?. one at the edge of the front, tho other at the fall of the curtain Iuside, on one side only, is a cherry, pink or blue bow, aocording to the taste of the wearer. A narrow black lace decorates the edges of the bonnet and the curtain. For the month of September and October, straw bonnets will b? trtmmod with black velvet resilles. and Autumnal fruits and flowers. Vine foliage is often placed as a coronet on the front, and the ends hanging over the curtain. The white silk ribbon is striped and cheeked with black. A rose, and a blonde ruche forms '.he eap. Very pretty caps arc fashioned of the new style of guipure, and trimmed with small jet buttons ; a bow of ribbon is nlaced on the top of the head, and on oach aide a tuft of ribbon. Dress caps may bo ma>l? of white bionde and black lace; three short ends of black Iaco fall back on the bead; on each aide there is a tuft of ribbon loops. Morning caps are composrxl of insertions of Valenciennes and embroidered insertion ; there is a fancbon on the front; the strings and trimmings are of embroidered mus lin bordered with Valenciennes. Dress caps *ro also worn of crap? and blonde; the front has fluted rows of crapc and blonde ruches ; a round of blonde form the crown, and on each fide there is a large bow of crape trimmed with blonde. The autumn handkerchiefs, now displayed in tho magnificent establishment of Chaperon. Kue de la Paix, are Co vered with richly embroidered viae leaves aud grapes and the late flowers. 1 he morning handkerchiefs are gouerally em broidered in very small patterns, or in festoons of oolored cotton. Coral oontinues to be tho favorite ornament for both half-dress and full toilette. The pa rures ot coral of a pink hue. arranged by Sar raxin, Itf Boulevard St. Denis, are beautiful specimens of French taste. The favorite styles are those of arabe>que desigus. and oriental patterns. A bouquet of coral forms a beauti ful ornameut on tue corsage of a white muslin robe ; wheu th^re are two skirts, the tunic is looped up with a coral ornament. misfoktlm:s of a* imhikter. The New York Evening Post furnishes the following as the persoual experience of an im porting merchant of that city, during the last days of August, which will be appreciated by many men in business, and even its perusal cannot fail to suggest prudence and economy, it is a daily history in all kinds of monetary stringency : August 18th, '57.?Refused discount at bank.

On Sunday, the 23d of August, the Empress Eu genie visited Bayonne, to Attend a bull fight in the Faubourg uf St. Esprit, where these sport# hove been held for the last few years. The King ot Wartemburg was also present At this humanizing Amusement, so dear to All Span iards. and consequently to Her Majesty of the French. Two Auimals were killed, after un dergoing the usual process of torture, to the apparent satisfaction of the amateurs, and as a similar pleasure was about to be afforded by a third butchery, a heavy thunder stntm came on. at once interrupting the sport. A number of the spectators rushed for shelter to the gal lery or platform where the musicians were sta tioned, which wa.J, excepting the boxes occupied by diguitaries, the only spntcovered in the arena. The structure, which was unusually fragile, gave way beneath the weightof hundreds who pressed upon it, and all were precipitated to the ground. A great panic arose, and it was at first feared that several persons were killed, but it soon appeared that only one was crushed to death, although several had limbs fractured. The man ager of the bull-ring thought that tho disaster would release him from presenting the rest of his animals. But the crowd insisted on thecon tinuancc of the "sport,*1 and no bull makinghis appearance. fell to tearing up benches, break ing down barriers, and demolishing everything they could lay their hands on. The Empress, whose sensibilties were only pleasantly affected by the iuhuman torture of the bull, became disgusted with tho unexpected sceue, and re tired. but the rioters continued their uproar, and the troops had to be called iu to disperse them. Whether the Empress will again patronise Sunday bull-tights is not stated. It is said that the Emperor is strongly opposed to them, and desires to introduce a more thorough observance of the Sabbath in France ; but his wife id a strong*jninded woman. Ta* Poiso.h Bcsh.?One day, threo maid servants and I went out to bathe in the lake below Mr. Bell's house, near Sydney. When we camo out of tho water, being full of lifo And spirits, wo ran about to dry the bathing gowns upon our backs, chasing each other among the brushwood. Mary cautioned me against going near some bushes, which she said were poison ous; but when Harriet was pursuing me. I only thought of avoiding being caught, and heed lessly jumped into a paison bush. A large leaf instantly struck me with a smart, flat stroke, upon the leg, and before I could retroat, the whole limb swelled frightfully. Mary ran to look for help, and found Mr. Elward Bell, the assistant's son, not far off. He had his gig with him,, and being aware of the necessity for prompt surgical aid, he at ones took me up, just as I was. with bare head and feet, aud noclothcs but the bathing gown, and drove off at great speed. Without stopping at his fathca's house, or at ParainattA, or anywhere else, he made a short cut. along a bad road, bnd never drew bridle until he reeched the door of Dr. Bland's surgery at Sydney. I was in dreadful agony. Dr. Bland cut a hole in my leg, and poured in a liquid, which I believe was spirits of wine. It burned like fire; a quantity of blackish green fluid ran out, and the swelling sunk as it flowed. He then put an issue where he had made the incision. I s<*>11 reoovered, but ever since have found a peculiar insensibility to pressure or pricking ia the part affoctcd, which was a lew mehes above the instep. I never heard any other namo for the bush which had hurt mc, excepting that of the poison bush. The leaf was flat and wide, and the stalks had bunehes which 1 >ok white, and curled something like endive. I spent one day at the Doctor's house, aud the next I went on board the Denmark Hill. Mr. Edward Bell bad saved my life, but I had no inclination to reward him, as he wished, by bo coming his wife.?Autobiography of Eliziibeth Davit, a Balailava Nuru. A Novkl Excuse pgr a Suspected nm glar.? John Spellman, who lives on Front street, below its junction with Fifth, was awak ened at an early hour on SundAy morning, by a noise in his sleeping chamber, and leaping from the bed, seized upon an unknown man, who was endeavoring u> get out at the window. Spcllman retained the follow in custody until the watchman of the Ward arrived and took charge of the supposed burglar, who gave his name as Lewis Hisely. Yesterday morning, Hisely arraigned before the Police Court, where he stated by way of ex plaining the suspicious circumstances under which he was arrested, that he had been in the city only a month, And that during all that time he had boen looking for his wife, to whom he was greatly attached. He had heard that his sp=>u*e had proved unfaithful, and had trans ferred her affections to Spellman, and w?is even living in his house. To be certain of tho in fidelity of his consort, in whom Hisely professed the largest faith, he determined to visit Spell man's bed chamber, during the silence ot" the night, in search of tho erring one. and if guilty, to prove her guilt, by the evidence of his own senses. At the close of his narrative Hisely looked ex ceedingly rueful, and was observed to apply the corner of his hankerchief to his oyes. as if to dry the rising tears. The Police Judge could not believe the prisoner's highly improbable story, and con sequently held him to bail in to answer toe charge of attempting to commit burglary, at the Court of Common Pleas. Hisely protested his innocence, and as he was taken below for lack of some friend to be his se curity, declared himself a victim to adverse and inexorable circumstances, and an undue conjugal affection.?Cincinnati (razette. Some Dog.?A gentleman left Holyoke on Friday afternoon for this city in a buggy, taking a favorite dog with them. As they progressed toward Willimansett the gentleman amused himself by plaguing the dog. till he had got the animal into a state of complete worry. Presently the gentleman's hat blew off, and be weut back after it, leaving his horse and buggy standing in the road ; then the dog took advantage of his masters absence to jump into and start the animal, who trotted gaily toward the river, followed by the gentleman yelling '?whoa,*' to no purpose. His faithful dog now took a position upon the scat, where he could keep an eye on his master and another on the sieed. to see fair play in the race. They ap proached the Connecticut river, into which the waggish brute drove, and, keeping his seat, floated out behind the horse, who swam, after getting beyond his depth. They were seen, at tnis juncture, by person on the south shore, who put off in a boat, aud got them safely to land.? the dog in high glee at his successful experiment in driving?and then went back after their owner, who will, no doubt, leave that dog be hind the next tiino he g-.es to ride. The best of this story is its truth.?Springfield (Mass.) Republican ? A Very Prixliar Disn.?When our party of six had seated themselves At the centre table, my attention was attracted by a covered dish, something unusual at a Chinese meal. On a certain signal the cover was removed; and presently the face of the table was covered with juvenile crabs, which made their exodus from the dish with all possible rapidity. Tho crablets had been thrown into a plate of vine gar just as the company sat down?such an immersion making them more brisk and lively than usual. Hut the sprightly sport of the in fant crabs was soon chocked, by each guest seizing which he could, dashing it into h>* m >uth, crushing it betveen his teeth, and swal lowing the whole morsel without ceremouy. determined to do as the Chinese did, I tried this novelty also with one?with two. I fuc cccdeJ, finding the shell soft and gelatinous, for they were tiny creatures, not more than a day or two old. But I was compelled to give in to the third, which had resolved to take vengeance, aud gave my lower hp a nip so sharp and severe as to make mc relinquish my hold and likewise desist from any further expl* ruueut tfui wUuxt.?Lift in CA?w.
