TFrom La Follstt] Two distinctly opposite styles will, lt i? said, Meat with equal ?access this winter. The skirts of dresses will be worn either ornamented to exoees. or?for there is as medium?*thorOttghly simple aad void of all ornament. We an hardly realise this extreme of simpllsity. specially u We find enr elegante* wearing Bounce*, soutaches. and passementeries of all * kind*. It i* true that for an In-door dree* a variety of orsamente i* unnecessary. aad even "convenient For "robeade rille" of eonreo the ease is quitedifferent. One.thinai* Certain, t a handsomely trimmed dress will always hare a richer appearanoe than one leu *o, let the material he what it may. The only difficulty 4 ia to chooee from the mass offered for oar selection ; comprising smell gauffered flounoee, ruche*, braiding*, passementeries of all kinds, buttons surrounded with lace or for, colored pipings, tassels, pompons of fraved silk, medallions of velvet or silk embroidered in satinstitch, lace flouuoes or insertions, very narrow _ .J *-.'11. L. I- 1 A -ml * gnuuerwj iruiB. onaus *ji ybitbi or 811KB B aisposition, Ac. It is impoaaible to name the ? thousand and on* stylea and material for trimming dreasea. Flounce* are never put to the bottom of the skirt. and are placed together, or in row* with epacea between, acoordlBg to the faney ef the wearer. Many are plaeedtn twos or three, and aeh set headed by a rush or band of color.? They are leldom pat atraight round the akirt, but in vandykea or soollopa. The donees are not hemmed?they are either bound or pinked. Many drewea are trimmed en tunique, and it ia expected that thia atyle, being a becoming one. aa it girea height and grace to the figure, will long remain in faabion. The bodies of drama ^ are made either round or with two ppiuts; if the Utter, the points in front open. They are cloeed to t^e throat, or open enooear, according to the style of the material, or the purpose for whieh the style was designed. Alpaca is still a favorite material with the Parisians, and seems to be gaining ground with tha English. It has the advantage of falling in graceful folds, without so much danger in catting is exists in many other fabrics. Poplins i . either English or Irish, are mach worn. L Taffetas, antiques and moire* still maintain I.' their rank. Velvets are generally trimmed with Astraoan, either real or imitated, in Thibet wool or frayed silk. It is a very rich and soft trimming. Foulards are much in favor, despite the winter. The most fashionable ere those with brown or grey grounds, i and eolorad flowers. A white foulard with colored natterns. makes a vervelemnt evening drew, and hu the advantage over tarlatane in that it will wash Soutaches and cords are ery aach worn. The designs in which they are made are very rich and fantastio The skirts are worn very fall and long behind, bat rather shorter in front than formerly Colored pettieoats are as much in favor for ? out-of-door-wear as ever. They are made in wools ar drougets, in plain materials, and trim* med with wide bands of velvet or colored merino; ia cashmere, with designs printed to Imitate laces?this latter is hardly good taste; the meet elegant and expensive colored petti* coats are in blach silk, quilted with white or eater la various patterns, in squares or medallions. 4c. The Zouave vest is not superseded by the Garibaldi; but is no longer accompanied by al * & _ m ? _ ?_ ?? _ ?.m_ _ _ ia? waimcoas 01 lamie or maaiin ; iae season k require* warmer materiala, raoh u Caehmere ta all colon, embroidered in black and whit*. The robe* de ehambre "Loaia XV." are is great favor; the front flu te the body, and the b*ek put in largo box-plaits, whloa fall from the anoolder The corsage is open to the waiat, and the tkirt it opened from the fastening at the waiat; this style of dreaa mad* in T*U*t and trimmed with Chinchilla or Aatraeao, has a vecy rich effect. Lacee of all kinds ar* ma?h worn, both for dr*ss?a, bonneU, trimming, or for artioleaof eut-door apparel Black laee ia much worn in yening drees and often accompanies white material. The colora moat in rogue, perhaps not tbo*? moat worn, bat at all *venta the moat elegant and fashionable, are greys in all vfcadee, the Havana brown, a peculiar shade of green, and a new shade of violet of a very bine tinge; this last oolor is an expensive one, arising from some difficulty in the preparation. Evening dresses have hardly been decided on yet, bat we have noticed one or two very legant ones; they are generally made of tarlatane, Chambery game, and laoe ; light silks and satins being kept for older persons. Silk ondershirts are seldom worn; tarlatane or erape giving a much more elegant effect. Paletots are much worn; of all these, the half fitting basqaioe is oonsidered the most distingue and the most habille; it just falls into the linee of the vaiat, without being fastened, ^ . . _ _ a_ ~.a u n l _ _a_ _ _ a _ i_ or atung ugnuy 10 h. oaawis mia? in mc, velvet or easbmere, lined with qailted silk or trimmed with far or laee, are very elegantly worn. Braiding U moeb worn on all mantle* or oieaks, tome mantlet fitting tightly to the bowlder*, from thenee falling in large plait*, trimmod either only with a pelerine of lace, or snrmotded with broad lace. We noticed a rerj olegant Arab bornoa* in blaok velvet, and trimmed entirely with laee. For opera-eloak*, the b among u the most elegant, and the moat fall dreee. If made in cashmere, they are embroidered or braided in white or seme other eoler; they are also made in satin, terry, velvet, or in white plash; thi* last is very novel. The satin must be emhrnirinrfH ill utin-ilitoh ! thn t?rr* rnlvat ia trimmed with passementerie or lsce, and the plash i? surrounded with a large cord, sad has tassel at each corner Chenille ornament* re very fashionable both for dreaeea and cloaks. Ribbons of shaded velvet will be worn this winter for bonnets, blaek spotted with white, Ior vielet with blaek eroesbars, seem the favorites at present. Artifioial flowers will be in great request for ball-dresses this winter; they shoald be mixed with laoe, Alen$oo, Chantilly, English blonde- or gold and silver laoe Thev are nlaced either in larre den-had bo qiratl. or in long branohea on tn? skirt. The boutti mad* by our principal milliners re no longer raised in * high point. They are <+ 4Mn|uiahed from oonamon-pi ace bonnets by I the fact of their being retber quare at the top and Tery open at the aide*; they are >1111 large, bet not so large aa they were. The top of the oep i* fall of flowera, or feeders, Ae , and the (idea of bleode or laee, ere very fall. \ The erowna ere worn either looee or plain, and \the certain of a moderate itpt a Bonnet* are oonpoMd of two different materials, erape and relvet for full-dreea bonneta; silk and terry velvet for thoee of Iocs dreaa. The most fashionable eolora are claret, green, Capuchin?a new gray, tbe violet before v mentioned. and black mixed with white. ? Tib cotto.f Tubi wit?

The NtuhvilU Banner of the 7th it very nerroas about the advance of the Rebel aray on Louisville. It says Every report from fiowling Green seems .to indicate a resolve to go into winter quarters. To do this without a single effort towards the redemption of Kentucky will b? nothing more her lees than a downright disgrace to bur arms. It will entirely destroy all oonfidenee in Oeneral Johnston, and fatally impair his usefulnees in the future. It will weaken, discourage. and .prostrate utterly the noble sohemes which inepirs the hrave men who are rallying t? the relief of a neighboring State, and blaofcen the fair hope* which we cherish for the release of a loved and honored sister from bondage. It will lose us Kentucky forever, and seriously endanger our own borders whenever inrini* MsmnaUn r\nama Can it be pouible that General Johnston will ao misapply his great trnst ? We have heard some queer notions mentioned u reasons for this masterly inactivity. Among others, equally absurd, it is alleged that a passive quietude on our part throughout the Winter months will operate with annihilating power on the enemy, that it will discourage and demoralise them, and that before the new season their oondition will be so rotten as will offer as an easy victory. God help the authors of such a theory. A more stupendous folly never originated in an old maid's pate or arose over a grandmother's snuff box. The very reverse is the case. The enemy is the party which can afford to wait. They are composed of men whose service* are employed at a fair valuation. They enlist for par, and ao long aa they receive their regular hire, a snug inactivity in eamp or quarters <s all the better for them. Ia the name of common sense, how are we to demoralise the enemy by refusing to fight him? Truly a new piece of philoeophy under the sun. He alraady holds four-firths of Kentucky. Why should he advance * He oertainly has a plausible excuse net to do so. Perhaps he is not ready yet for the conquest ?f Tennessee. Very probably he Is aot yetsure of his foothold in Kentucky. There may bo a hundred reasons fer his holding back. Thtre is not one for ut, and we are losing time and missing ohanoos every day that we hesitate and delay Will General Johnston advance? Humphrey Marshall is doing so, and with success. He is taking the wind dear out of bis senior's sail. Breckinridge and Bockner are dying to help him. If General Johnston will not advanoe himself, can he not be induced to permit others to do ao ? The people are clamoring for it. Tbe press all over the South are urging it. A soldier's reDutation is involved in it. The nnhlic interests require it. Will General Johnston bind all these exigencies, hand and foot, and stand, glum and mate, and cold, and stark, like a frosen pump, until the spring thaw? We do not doubt that the Convention which organised a provisional government fur Kentucky ba.*ed its action on the expectation of a speedy advance. It must have been foreseen by the able men who eomposed that body that unless the jarisdiotion of the system put into operation were extended their work would inevitably prove a fsrce, and, in the end, turn out e failure. Their idea was beyoid a question, to expand their sphere with the progress of our army, to as to inolude sooh * portion of their State as would give a show of reason and authority to all their aots. If they had not anticipated a forward moveBent. and at least a chance to execute their purpoee, we de not believe they would have attempted to usher a State Government into ooh an existence aa it moat eke out if Qcneral Johnston continues his mistaken procrastination. At present, It is altogether a nominal affair. It extends merely along the border of Tennessee. It is pinned against the wall, like a butterfly in a labaratory, and, if it does not die of its wounds, will surely stifle before the winter is out of a oonflned un wholesome atmosphere. If it have life and vigor, it must have AAM #A (n MM/1 a t e/-? ! > TA IWUI W KlUlf 1U ?UU ?if IU UiCBlUO 1U.

Whenoe will it secure the wherewithal to keep body and soul together? Where will it find a revenue7 How will it establish a credit? What guarantees can it offer for the future? Who will trust it or obey It? These are stubborn questions, and a great deal hangs upon the way they are answered. Bat oharity begins at home. Bo it does. The first duty, therefore, of Tennessee as a measure of Mlf-preaervation, la to secure Kentacks as an ally and friend. That point is plain and self-evident. The liberation ofKentaeky Is our wbolaalm. How have we fulfilled it ? Have we made an effirt to falfllit? Not one ao far as we have M?n. We have lagged and delayed until the veriest dronea are growing impatient for aome activity, aa an evidence, at leaat of some remaining life. WiTU DiriNIII. [From the Richmond Enquirer, Dec. 13.J As neeeesity "is the mother of invention," it is generally observed that one effee*. of war is to develope the inventive genius of a eenntry in theprodaction of new and improved warlike machines and implement*'. The present war bu yielded bat scanty results of this eort. Indeed the barrenness of invention witii respect to oar water defenses is one of the most remarkable oircumstanoes of the times. Indeed, we do not know of a single projeot, oompleted or on foot, for oar water defence, with the exoeptioo of the ram boat Manasta*, which la, after all, scarcely more than the elomsy adaptation of old invention*? that poesees any worth. Oar fan-boats are converted from old steamer*, and are safe only oat of extreme range where they ean do no barm unless by aocidental shots. The exeeption of novelty and efficiency in favor of oar floating batteries, which merely apply a well known principle, ia aoareely tenable. Had they been furnieaod with oumitM, well plated with heavy iron to protect the fana and guonera, we m'ght regard them aa moat officiant defenoea. Tho diaaaling of oar cane at Fort Walker, on Hilton Head, ahoald eufflee to toaoh na the noeeccity of reaoarcee for defenoa against well direoted hall and ahell other than the oaare paraonal bravery of oar sen. Aa yet, notwithstanding the wall dasarred reputation of the South for tho ooarago of ita aoldiera, we have done hut little to ahow that we poaaeaa either tha experience or the ingenuity to thwart tha enemy on tha water.

At t^e latest dates one division was at Neocho, and the main army, under Price, had just left Humsnsvllle on Its way to Arkansas, which Price reports to be in obedience to orders from Jeff Davis. The day before this retreat, Pope hud driven In the pickets of Rains, whereupon Price withdrew Rains' division scross the Osage river, and marched bis whole army eight miles south He must bav? continued bis march with remarkable rapidity, as it seems that the main army had reached Humansvllle, In Polk county, while the vanguard, consisting of one division, had even reached Neosho.
