[From Le Follet ] The article! mostly employed for in-door drees are drogaets, repi, and wollen terry velvets; silk, satin, moire, terry, and plain velrets are patronised for visiting, or for fall dress. 6oatache is still the favorite ornament, and is applied to all materials, and for any style of drees. Cloaks, also, are handsomely braided. In faet, this trimming is employed wherever it can be advantageously in trod need Astraoan is still in great favor, but Swnnsdown has been introdaoed for fall drees, and has a very elegant effect. The skirts of dreeeee are worn very fnll, and long behind. Tight sleeves are verv rarelv seen. The moat fuhionaMn ahana for the preMnt month is open, rather short, > and (Ball. The trimming if not generally placed at the edge, but a little belew the elbow. < The bodies are made open down the front, bat hart- usually a small piece of the same material t as the skirt detached from the eorsage, bat i which ean be pot under the opening for out-of- 1 door wear. They are fastened by buttons, anless they haye some trimming down the front J wfciek oeefwritatcs a flat surface . Somebodies ? are attaehed quite on one side, or the fastening begins on the shoulder and ends at the waist ' on the opposite side. Many oorsages are so 1 trimmed as to give the appearance et a iacket, 1 the ornament ending at the waist under the arm. Pookets are still worn ornamented, but, instead of being sewn on the oatside as for merly, the opening only it seen. Silk flounces 1 re worn pinked or bound; the former style is ( the more elegant. They are sometimes pat on 1 in Urge plaits, in which casa they are hemmed 1 We hare seen some silk dresses made with one deep flounce and two small ones placed above; 1 and with an upper skirt to fall and meet the top flounce. Both flounces and skirts are pinked. The body of this dress was made open. ' with open sleeves, and rather short, and both 2 trimmed with a frill pinked at each edge. 1 ? For ball dress, nothing is so elegant or distingue in effect as tarlatane skirts, with floan- * ces pinked, and headed by bouillonnea, over ' cuiurea noooD, or omoKore* roebei ot 8UK. A ' colored tarlatan* skirt, to match the ribbon* or niching*, is worn under th? white on?. Ool- 1 ored tarlatans and orape* are worn, but are scarcely so simple or recherche. Lace flounces are generally lined with crape or tarlatane, either white or oolored, to impart a little stiff, nem to them. Satin dresses, with laee flounces, will be worn for full dress bj married ladies. For elderly ladies we have noticed some velvet dresses, opening down the front, over satin, moire, or watered silk The under skirt is generally handsomely embroidered or trimmed with lace. We remarked one dress in particular made in this style. It was of violet velvet; the edges of the opening embroidered in crapes and leaves?the latter worked in fold, and the grapes formed of pearls. The uner-skirt was of white satin, with a wide bouillome of white crane, oross-barred with narrow gold braid. The body, a la Raphael, opened over wnue satin, and vai ornamented like the ' skirt. Optra oloaka are still worn in the form ef the ( burnous. Some are made as paletots, bat the ( burnous has the advantage of being removed. , They are made of satin, silk, and terry velvet, ( caehemire, or plush, and are haadsomely braided, embroidered, or edged with laee. When ] made in plush, they are merely edged with a , large silk cord, with tassels at each corner. The caehemire opera eloaks are spotted with , guiv or surer, jror oot-aoor wear tbe basquine , demia ijustee bu many advocates. The newest m > Jel of the season in this shape is made in velvet, not very Ions, splendidly embroidered in plamettee, and buttoned a la Pelonaiae. The Pardessus. trimmed with far, is made in velvet, with large sleeves, and the far bordering is very deep. For grande toilette, the velvette mantle, riohly embroidered and trimmed with handsome flounoes of laoe, is the moet elegant that can be worn. Some small paletot* are being worn, made of plash or velvet cloth, and fastened by large buttons. The sleeves and oollarare lined with quilted silk. 1 Bonnets are worn composed of two oolore; for | instance, black velvet, trimmed witH colored j flowers or feather*. For full dree* the curtain and pa*e* are generally made of tulle or ( blonde. Bonnet* are still mad* Urge, bat not ( of the unbecoming *h*pe recently worn. They j ere rather flat, instead of being pointed at the , top. Colored nipings are no longer oon*id*red , in good taate, baring become *o rerj common. ( Among the various bonnet* which oeme under eur inspection,we noticed one of a very aimple and elegant character, and espeeially deferring of our attention. The pa**e curtain and crown, which was tight, were made ef black ilk, spot ed with bead* in duster* of five. The calotte was of black velvet, with a small black lace at each edge, and the inside was of white blonde, trimmed with a ruche, and a mall bunch of mo?* rosea: the strings of silk. edged with bead*.

Ererybody knows Pratt, tha " Great Amerian Traveler," aa ha call* himself Ha if a larmleM genius, who appears in our midst tolay, and is off to-morrow, bat whera he will urn ap is as much a mystery to bis acquaintmeee u to himself. Something seems to be he matter with his brain, for he acts like one vho possesses none. When Wise,who is about >n a par with Pratt in some things, was the }orernor of Virginia, the " Great American rraveler" called on him at Riohmond, and ifter aome delay obtained an andienoa. It was ibont the time that the aritation reenMtinir leoeaeion commenced in Virginia, so Wiee did lot feel very good-natured towarda northern nen " Who are you V* aaked Wiae, aa the trar. >ler atood before him, and aurpriaed enough Wiee must have been at hia appearance. " I'm Daniel Pratt, the Great American rraveier, and independent oandidate for the Presidency. Yoo must have heard of ma." "State your Tiewa," aaid Wiae, and hia large >lack eyea rolled aa though anxioua to burat Tom their aooketa. Pratt cemmenoed hia harangue, and eoninued it for an hour. He mixed up every* .mug mai uo ouuia uiiuk 01, oat mil n in istened without interrupting him. At length Pratt paused for breath. " Hare you finished 7" asked Wise. " No, sir;" aud once more Pratt commenced, tnd in half an hoar be had finished. He was >ut of breath and exhausted. Wise had not ipoken a word, bat sat regarding him in dumb Mtonishment. "Have you concluded?" asked the Gorer?or. " Yes, I think I hare." " Thea get out of this house, you d?d aboition humoug. More, and don't let me see rom in Richmond twenty-four hours from the >resent time." Pratt left the presence of the Governor, and loon shook the dust of Virginia from his feet. 3* has never seen Heorj since, and, to tell the iuth, be don't want to, for he (wears that F ise is insane; bat, for all that, he is proud of .he interview, and often boasts of it. iy In Prof. Agassis's interesting paper on 4 Methods of Study in Natural History," we ind this aneodote of an animal known te ilmost all oountry boys : Th? ' Horsi-Haib."?A gentleman from Detroit has had the kindness to send me one of bose long thread-like worms (Gordinx) found >fteD in brooks, and called Horse-Hairs by the :ommon people When I first recaiv?H it. it was coiled up in a close roll aft the bottom of the bottle, filled with fresh water, that contained it, and looked mfee like a little tangle of black sewing silk than anything elee. Wishing to unwind it, that I might examine its entire length. I placed it in a large ohiua basin filled with water, and proceeded very gently to disentangle its coils, when I perceived that the animal had twisted itself areund & bundle of its eggs, holding them fast in a sloce embrace. In the process of unwinding the eggs dropped away and floated to a little iistance. Having finally stretched it out to its full length, perhaps half a yard, I sat watching to tee if this singular being tkat looked like a long black thread in the water would gire any lifni of life Almmi ~ J --0 IV UIUTVU towards the bundle of eggs, and having reached it, began to sew itself through and through the little white mass, pawing one end of its body through it, and then returning to make another ititoh, as it were, till the eggs were at last completely entangled again in an intricate net work of eoils. It seemed to me almost impossible that this eare of offspring could be the result of any instinct of affection in a creature of so low an organisation, and I again separated it from tbe eggs, and plaoed them at a greater distance, when the same action was repeated. On trying the experiment a third time, the ounaie 01 eggs bad bMomt loosened, and a few of them dropped off singly into the water. I"be efforts which the animal then made to resorer the missing onee, winding itself round ind round them, but failing to bring them into the fold with the rest, b*sause thej were too small, and evaded all efforts to secure them, when onoe parted from the first little sompaet mass, eonrinoed me that there was a definite purpose in its attempt*, and that eren a being so low in the soale or animal existence has some dim oonsoiouiaess of a relation to its offspring. I afterwards unwound also the mass of eggs, which, when coiled up, as I first saw it, made a roll of white substance about the sice of a umuuu-uuau, BUU 1UUUU Vttll 11 OOD11110(1 01 I string of eggs, measuring more than twelve feet in length, the eggs being held together bj some geUtinoos substance that cemented them end prevented thetn from telling apart. Catting this string across, and placing a small seotion under the microscope, I oounted on one lurfaoe of snoh a out from seventy to seventyfive eggs; aad estimating the entire number of eggs aooording to the number contained on such a surface, found that there was not less than eight millions of eggs in the whole tring.
