Although the arrivn I of the Baltic places us in pus session of one week's la'er dates from Europe, the new n which she brings may he summed up in a few short paragraphs. Of intelligence lYoin the seatof war there is absolutely nothing. In the Crimea and Asia Minor things remain in statu quo, whilst in the Baltic the campaign seems to be over, some of the mortar veseel* having already returned to Eng. land. There is a rnmor that the Kmperor Alexan der was present incognito at tbe battle of the Tchernaya. One of our correspondents states that he is expected at Vienna, on his way to the Crimea. Tbe notification given by our government to that of Denmark, of the termination of the treaty of 1826, which takes next summer, andof its in tention to resifct the payment of Sound dues there after, forms at the present moment an important subject of discussion on the European continent The Paris papers comment upon the subject at great length. While they uH admit the justice of the principle contended for by the United States? to wit: that all seats, iuterior and exterior, should be fcre to all Hags; that tliere should be no such thing as a more claunnn ? still they all deem the time for raising this question to lie inopportune while Eu. 3 ope lias so many other matters of graver conse quence to attend to. The Pays intimates that wo should wait until the close of the Eastern war, and that then a peace congress would settle this and all other international questions in dispute. From the reply of the Danish Cabinet to the Ameri can Minister at Copenhagen, it will be seen that an iens our treaty with that government is renewed, onr \ vessels are to be licated on the same footing as those of non-favored nations? that is to say, unless we take the remedy into our own hands, and refuse to pay the Sound toll, which is, undonbtcdly, what we shall do. The King of Naples is getting into such disfavor with his subjects that there is a talk of dethroning him and replacing the Mural dynasty. If so, one of oor countrywomen, the Princess Murat, will be Queen of Naples. Things look badly for the prospects of the present government in Spain. The Carlists continue their insurrectionary movements in such a systematic manner that it is evident they are the result of some vast and well organized plan. In the meanwhile, '.he government itrclf is rapidly falling into con tempt. The friends of Narvaez, supported by 1/iuis Napoleon, are conspiring to sccnrc his return to Mad rid us dictator, and it is not improbable they may succeed. A frightful disaster, uttended with Josh of life and serious if not fatal injury to some dozen persons, happened on the New York Central Bail road, near West Albany, yesterday morning. It appears that through the negligence of a switch tender, the pas senger train from Buffalo for Albany ran into a cat tle train, smashing the locomotive, tender, and first passenger cur of one, and the two rear cars of the other, into fragments. One of the latter was filled with animals, many of which were killed. The wounded passenger*, mangled and dead cattle, broken bag gage and debris of the cars and machinery, mingled together iu one indistinguishable mass, presented u scene altogether indescribable. An account of the collision, with the names of the dead and wounded, may he found elsewhere. The Massachusetts fusion State Convcntionjmet at Worcester yesterday, and nominated Julius Rock well for Governor on the first formal ballot. The present Lieutenant Governor, Treasurer and Auditor, were re nominated. E. R. Hoar was nominated for Attorney General. Strong unti-oiaveiy resolutions were adopted. The convention, composed of a mix ture of Know Nothings, whigi, ficc Boilers, and a sprinkling of democrats, but all tl. >roughly impreg nated with abolitionism, numliered about one thou sand delegates, and was presided over by Hon. N. P. Banks, Know Nothing mcml>e: of Congress. The frauds committed on the Ilarleiu Railroad Company by their former Secretary and transfer clerk. Alexander Kyle, arc likely to eventuate in a significant and serious manner for that institution. Yesterday an action, at the suit of Drake A Co., brokers, was tried, for the sum of #25, 000, advanced by them on five hundred and sixty shares of stock placed in their hands by Kyle, and bearing on their lace the impress of authenticity and correctness. The company subsequently refused to acknowledge the legality of the shares, and would not consent to transfer the i-tock <o negotiated by their whilome agent, though it appears that he had transacted busi ness in shares with another Wall street house to the amount of I -00,000 during the six months previous to the discovered frauds. This, it was contended, was a very loose way of doing business: and the juiy thought there was much negligence on the part of the company in allowing an officer on e. salary of <1,200 a year to have such unlimited control over their inmen e stork, and gave a verdict for the plaintiff* for the amount claimed, together with interest. The Board of Health met yesterday, and took up Tor consideration the rejtoit of the special committee in favor of repealing the ordinance recently passed imposing quarantine upon vessels arriving from Southern ports. After an exciting debate the re port was injec ted by a vote of fourteen yeas to twen ty-two nays. The importance of the question before the Board attracted a large number of spectators. Tin' Board of Supervisors last evening merely re reived and referred three petitions and then ad journed. The Board ol Aldermen met last evening. We give a report of the proceedings, which pre-ents no feature of special interest , in another column. We give elsewhere an acconnt of the mysterious ilenth of a woman ot the town, named Amanda Cooke, who is supposed to have committed snicide by taking laudanum. There an- rumors of foul play in connection with this sad affair, and one ol the eorowrs Is thoroughly investigating the > ircum stuocesof the cast-. The epidemic continues at Norfolk, with scarccly h sipn of abatement. ? >n Tuesday there were thirty, eight do.'ths ?nd fifty new cases. The fever has re cently made its appearance at Vickslwiv: and ii is stated the disease prevails iu nearly every town c-ontignons to the Mis i ppi river. At Philadelphia ye?ur<lav the counsel for one of .1 lie negroes implicated In committing an a- -ault up y>n Col. heeler, at the time of tin' ahduetion of his wVves, appeared before Judge Kelley, nnd made a ment to the cth ct that the jur. which tiled the t. been tarnj crtd V ith in * ry t tIoii ' manner. Tbe natter will be investigated. It will probably turn out to be merely an attempt on the part of the negro sympathizer*, to re-open the case in behalf of the couvii ted parties. Tlit Railroad Commisfdoners, after due investiga- ' tion, have made their report as to the cause of the disaster oil the 8tonington Railroad ou the 3d inst. Tliey state that they are forced to the conclusion that the accident whs occasioned by tbe want of repair of the road. Travellers should avoid all roads not kept in repair. The foreign news yesterday had a tendency to unsettle the market for cotton. Holders of consid erable lots demanded about previous rates, while buyers refused to meet thein without some conces sion in prtres. The sales, in small parcels, em braced about GOO bales, one-half of which was sold to spinners at irregular prices. Flour improved abont Gjc. a 12$c. per barrel, with pretty free sales, including parcels for export and for future delivery. Sound good wheat was in good demand, and 2c. or 3c. per bushel higher. Corn closed at about 87c. a 87?c. Pork was inactive and prices easier. There wns a rather better feeling in sugar. The sales em braced about 400 hhds. and 600 boxen. Coffee was quiet. The ship room for ports to Great Britain was reduced, while there was more oBering. Grain and flour were pretty freely engaged for Liverpool and London at rates given in another column. A vessel of about (J00 tons was chartered for London, to load with oil cake, at ?1,700. The IVewn from Bui-op*? -General ImbrogltA. Matters in Europe are fast approaching a tangle which it will puzzle the acutest intel lects to unravel, and will probably in the end require to be cut with the sword, so far as the present belligerents are concerned. It is plain enough, notwithstanding all that is said by the British press, that the quarrel between France and Russia is growing more difficult to settle every day. The capture of Sebastopol is evidently as distant as ever. According to the most reliable letters from the camp, the event next in order will be a repetition of the battle of Traktir Bridge. On tli^s other hand, the position of the Russians is far from enviable. We glean from the occasional let ters which have appeared in print from Ameri can surgeons in the eity that the sufferings of . the besieged from the incessant fire of the Allies arc almost intolerable. They will be largely increased during the next bombard ment, for which the Allied artillery are now accumulating material. During the winter the garrison can hardly hope to escape being put on short allowance. When it is remem bered that every pound of grain required for their subsistence has to be carted in the com mon country carts drawn by oxen for several hundred miles, and that tbe number of mouths to feed cannot full short of 100,000, it will be seen that Napoleon's prediction is not base less, and that if the Allies are foiled in their hope of taking the city, they may at least console themselves with the reflection that they arc inflicting as much damage on the enemy as if it were already in their power. In the Baltic, the Sweaborg farce, which even according to the English accounts, ha? now dwindled down to the destruction of several dwelling houses, the Governor's residence, and a magazine, may probably be regarded as the closing operation of the season. The fleets will return unscuthed to their confiding coun try, which maintains them at a trifling expense of $150,000 per day. and in all probability some new officer will be appointed to sacriHcc himself next year in the room of Dundas. The net result of the whole will be to con firm llussia 111 her opinion of her own invul nerability; and? as it cannot, be expected Lliat the Allies will yield, at all events until they have been once thoroughly beaten, which does not seen) likeJy? to render the eootinuancc of the war for anot her year a matter of certainly. Ilut the Russian war is only a small portion of the troubles in store for Europe. It is now certain that Spain is on the eve of a fresh convulsion. Accounts apparently well authen ticated state that conspiracies are rife in the Provinces, some designed to aid the Curlist cause, otlitTs to promote the elevation of Nar vacz to an unconstitutional rank. It is said that Napoleon is concerned with the latter; that lie is convinced of the instability of the Kspartcro Cabinet, and. as his uncle interfered to quiet Spain when Charles IV. and his son quarrelled, so he intends to interfere on behalf of Isabella. It appears certain that the tripartite alliance has definitely gone into e fleet, and that Spain will send men to the Crimea in the course of a few months, in con sideration oJ a loan of several millions. In olden time such a transaction would have been put in the honest shape of a subsidy to Spain. Now-a-days, Castilian pride demurs at figuring in so mercenary a light; the money is said to be a loan, and it is shrewdly conjectured that the borrower, being hopelessly bankrupt at home, without credit, resources, railways or trade, has mortgaged her colonial possessions once more as security. If this be true? and it seems plausible here is trouble enough for Europe for one half century. The Kingdnin of Naples is likewise on the brink of revolution. King Domha. sis lie is popularly called, has goaded his subjects to madness by a series of acts of tyranny. True to the hereditary policy of his family ? who never had any sense at all- -this foolish monarch has followed blunder by blunder, un til the state of the polished Kingdom of Na ples reminds us of what we read of the mojt debased of Eastern Men have been incarcerated for a look, and scourged, actual ly scourged in this nineteenth century for a speech. The King dare not show his face in public. He hides, it is said, like a man who knowing the Neapolitan character sees an ene my in every human figure, anil a dagger under every cloak. An insult to a British subject has induced Lord l'olinerston to send a few ships to Naples: it seems u>ry likely that the people will take advantage of their presence to rise in revolt. Humor says that another chip of the Napoleon block young Murat ? is likely to be the favorite man with the peo ple when they rise. Finally, in the language of Napoleon. I'u ropc cannot remain an indifferent spectator to the crisis now pending in Denmark. The go vernment of that happy littlo kingdom having choked off the chnmlicrs and the constitution, has replied to Mr. lledingcr. a" every one knows, to the effeefcthat they are very sorry lh< I nited States think of refusing to renew the treaty, as the i ffect of such refusal will he to exclude American hips from the Baltic. No one who know Hen. Pierce can donbt but his answer to thi* will be modelled on the speeches In llomer. with a glance at the orations of Sliak speare's martial heroes; in a word, that he will threaten Denmark with instant demolition if a single American ship is delayed. In view of this prospect which n?-* to lw pretty well understood at IVri - ?n article ho - appeared in the Paris & jnstitutionnd which ia understood to have t'.cen inspired from tho Tuilerlea "In principle (?t princi^<") says this perform ance, ''European diplomacy would inevitably pronounce against the United States, iu the eventuality of war between them and Den mark. * * The reasoning of Denmark cer tainly does not lack value." This is the Em peror's view: a pretty plain one, bo far as the United States are concerned, and no very had key to the bold answer of the Danes to Mr. Bedinger. It is impossible to say bow so wretched an administration as ours may ileal with the mat ter. But, whatever is done on this side the water, it appears plain that Europe is on the verge ot a volcanic eruption such as it has never known4 If, as seems not impossible, Napoleon is at the bottom of the movements in Spain and Italy, if he contrives to embroil himself with the United States on the Danish or the Cuba question, as he has embroiled himself with Russia on that of the christians in Turkey, his biography will find a larger space in the history of Europe than any for mer sovereign, not excluding his uncle. Tiik Republican Mhetino in thb Tabernacle and its Distcrhers. ? At the republican mass meeting held in the Tabernacle on Wednesday evening last, there was a very weak and potty attempt made at disturbance, in which a gen tleman named Henderson allowed himself to be put forward by the oppositionists. The Tribune and Times represent this person as one of the reporters of the Herald. We unquali fiedly deny the statement. We understand, how ever, that he is a pupil of the Tribune school ? that he has been for years connected with that paper as a reporter; and we presume that the eccentricities developed by him the other night were owing to this fatal connection. Gold in the Gadsoen Country. ? It is now re ported that the Gadsden desert is full ol gold and silver mines aud washings, commonly known as " dry diggings." Dry enough, we guess, they will prove to be. Is this a feeler for another Gadsden treaty? Santa Anna lias left an empty treasury behind him, and his successors must pawn or sell something to raise the wind. We suspect, therefore, that these reported gold discoveries in the Gadsden purchase will result in another haul of ten or twenty millions from our surplus in tho sub treasury, if Guthrie can be humbugged. Nous vtrront. Gen. Wkbb Becoming Lukewarm. ? The en thusiasm of our Chevalier James Watson Webb, when he first came out for the Seward fusion ists, was boundless. He was even ready to go for Garrison for President and Fred Douglass for Vice President, in order to restore the Mis souri black line. And yet he was absent from the Tabernacle on Wednesday night. Is he lalling from grace ? Let him be looked after. He needs a little patting on the back. He Declines and Gives his Reasons for it. ? Mr. Chauncey Schaflcr declines the honor of an American nomination in this city, for fear that he may be elcctcd. A nomination might do, but ho is afraid that he will be saddled with a fat office. Ho ! ho ! Mb. Botts on his Travels. ? The last offi cial report of Hon. John Minor Botts, of Vir ginia, represents him as having delivered him self of a powerful political speech among the granite hills away up in New Hampshire. As the weather gets cool he will return south ward. Where is Captain Tyler ? Who Auk to he Cokoxeks 1 ? The hard shells make their nominations for coroners to-night. We hope they will bear in mind the impor tance of the office and the necessity of select ing proper men lor candidates. Our comfort and safety depend in a great measure on the character and ability of our coroners. Let the hards think of this to-night. Mr. Lott's Letter.? The letter of John A., declining the soft shell nomination on their 8tate ticket, is not forthcoming. Has Mr. Cochrane got that letter? If yea, we give it up. It will be rublicd out in his breeches pocket with the Scarlet Letter. ?? There's the rub." Important if Tri e.?

Great I>U play of B?aaty and fault Ion. Yesterday w?? the commencement of the UU season, and it paused off with more than the usual brilliancy and icltit that characterize those festivals of Cushion. The weather was all that could be desired, cool and bright. Nature wan in her moat propitious mood, and everything conspired in favor of the great event. All that skill and ingenuity could do to renter it successful vena done in vention was taxed to its uttermost, combinations and contrasts lent to it their peculiar charms; and the result was a display that i'aris might be proud of. True, a great den! of the fascinating triltes on display were un doubtedly French ? they might be known a. once by their ornate, exaggerated style; hut the greater portion were the results of American genius, and even the genuine 1'aris made article had to be uiodilled and toned down to suit the tastes of our New York belles. So, on the whole, the display wus gratifying to national vanity, and gave a ?rotaste of tfec good time coming when New York will be the l'aris of the Western world. In one respect tho coming season will be a fac simile of the past; there is no return to simplicity; dresses are as magnificent and expensive as over, and trimmings as lavishly profuse. Indeed, tho cost of the little elegant trifles that make up a fashionable lady's outfit would raise a doubt in the bosom of credulity. Pocket hand kerchiefs at one hundred and twenty dollars, and lace sets at sixty-five, are to us what the bone of an extinct ani mal was to Cu\ ler, data by whtch to calculate the ex pense of the whole. To-morrow the show room9 will continue open for the benefit of country milliners, who regularly repair to their I oris every hall' year, and bring back with thmn'patterin and Mean that last the next six months, doing with New York fashions what New lork modistes do with l'aris fashions ? modify them to suit the uiore primitivo tastes of their customers. To morrow the excitement of the " opening" dies out, and business returns to its usual channel with accelerated force; orders will flow In to the different establishments, and preparations for the winter campaign will be commenced in vigorous earnest. There is nothing strikingly new in cloaks or mantillas, tho winter styles not having yet appeared, but we have seen an oj era cloak of surpassing elegance that we cannot pass over. The material is tho finest French merino, white as a snow wreath, and it is em broidered about half-way up its length in perpendicular stripes. Three medallions, gradually decreasing in size, form each stripe, and are connected by a chain work of l'oi pian embroidery . From the lower medallion fa.II -i a fringe, In which is combined the brilliant rainbow colors used in the embroidery. As characteristic of the age and country, and as indi cating a cordial tmion between commerce and the arts, hitherto so estranged, we nAist not omit to mention n project carried out by (lenin, of llr ladway. This is, the establishment of a gallery of paintings in the Bazaar, representing the people of every quarter of the world In their national costume, it will be completed this week. 'Ihe different establishments mentioned below opened yesterday, and were besieged throughout ihe day by crowds of ladies, anxious to compare the styles of the various modistes; ? In Uroodu-ay.

Bonnets are still worn small in the front, and so close to the face that the fall inside trimming has the o(Tc -t of a border. The crown?, -whether oval or soft ? and fashion, more tolerant than usual, admits both ? dronp cftnsidera bly, and are profusely trimmed with double capes and falls of lace more or less pointed. We have never seen such bold and striking contrasts as in produced by the combinition of colors used this Benson. Black and white, ( berry color, and blue, scarletand lavender, and others equally peculiar, attract attention by their marked and startling originality. Fruits, flowers, cereals, feathers, ribbons and laces, form "tho outward flourishes." The flowers, which are of all siiea, from the tiniest moss rose bud to the stately fleur-de-lis, are generally of velvet, and the ribbons are barred or dotted with the same ma terial, or edged with fringe or imitations of lace so deli cately correct as to deceive the unpracticed observer. The mixture of black and white lace on the name hat is -till popular, and justly so, for the effee' is at one" bold and pleasing. The greatest novelties of the season are hats embroidered with chenille and bugles. lho-<e require less trimmings than the other styles, and the rich -irn plieity of the stylo is very attractive. One very [ire! ty hat, formed of white f- ilk embossed with black velvet, we must describe: ? The crown w?< Hat snd transparent, and from the centre proceeded in alternate < irclc< <?r iiu? of white silk and black velvet edged with blonde. A cape of white blonde fell like ? mht over the dotted under cape, and black and wlite ostrich feathers In tor mingled graced both sides. A very lull riirhe of whi'e tulle edged with black blonde, and a cluster of brilliant cherry colored (lowers, forme.! this inside tritniqing, and m ound the front of the hat the bonier turned inwards and the pointed edge resting on the ruche was a tall of rich white lace. Another, of dark Woe satin, wi" h broad hands of black velvet running both ways, a doable cape and a fall of Chantilly lace, deep in th" cant re ani nar rowing at the sides, deserve* mention. The oit'ido t -ini tninp was black and blue feather* intermingled and 'It inside, blue velvet flowers and the white li! in of France. A very elegant hat of black velvet, embroidered with bu gles, the ci own covered w ith afanchon iimil.i i ly "ins men' ? ed, wa- exhibited at one of the leading establishments, a ? also the two beautiful hats we huvo endeavored to de scribe. In the same establishment j; re lints of various colors, covered with a network of blaotkvelvet and a very prettj novelty in the wny of trimming tor isbHd'en' bats, called a marabout niche. This i ? placed on tin outside of the hat, and carried round the curtain; and the -<oft swaying motion imparted to it by the faints >t brsnth of air has a charming effect, anil reader* ?t pecu liarly npproprlale for youth, (ienia opens this -eason with Home very beautiful combinations. One liat, forme I of green silk, overlaid with black lace embroidered with green chenille and straw in very tasteful de-i';n- a! mce arrests attention. The face trimmings of glowing crini n flow rs, and white and cherry colored ribboni, contrast with and relievethe sombre beauty of the out-d ie. Ano ther, still more beautiful. wn* composed of white sil't co Ttrrd with whit* crape. glistening wl'li s tarty embroi dery; a deep fold of corn colored silk ran ronnd the edge of the hat and curtain In-ide and out, br> ikiiu through the monotony of tbe white, and looking lIKe a gleam of sunlight n|K.n snow. Marabout feather-, corn color and while made up the outside trimming, and exquisitely natural wheat ears adorneil the inside. Another of steel colored moire antique, trimmed with 1 il. i ck lace and gorgeous crimson flowers, and another of dark velvet with pendant bunche of acorns, ?ci> con spicnously elegant. HEAD DRESSES. llesd dres-cs are made of the same materials as hereto fore, but so arrange I as to have the effect of novelty. The <?' i/fWir d f'/m/s i-atiirr, struck u? as l>elng particularly elegant. It is formed of lace, disposed in such a manner as to rentable tie present style of wearing the hair in rolls. < ver thl? pulling pass CTOKSS iy iamtmerahle rows f narrow black velvet edged with b onde, which are lot', underneath amid the folds ol the hair, flusters of tra I* irg flowers are attached t.i the back and fall in bright I rotu>don over the shoulders. In another style the crown I* form"! by a braid of crimson velvet, a band of Mi'' ame material passes Wr the hair aboat two taebe* above the f' < eh .id and holds it -ecurely in its place ' ? Te le blonde lapj*t? are o?tri?b leathers, nnd on -neb ,W.c arc ma.w?, of -mall bright flowers like the yer l'fiia blossom. A bead dres* formed of white blou.le and blue ribbon, plaited in braids about an inch wide, which wont winding in ?nd out amid Uj? cloud-like luce in mazy rf^lari'y, wan romarkable r0? Us beauty. The ?? each, prig*-," a very pretty style, with a very inappropriate name, U eompoeed ot bow* upon bows of ribbon* arranged in the shape of a wreath, and serves rather to Mirrrouod than t > conceaf the comb. Other* are formed exclusively of Bowers, delicate spring blosspms, and glowing autumnal one* or stately exotic*, and humble wild flowers imorblent in beautiful contusion. These wreath* are fastened with large fold pins, from which depend chains jind ball- of the .same costly material. M0URNIN08. Tlie mourning for the coming season is distinguished for the richness and variety of the materials, and the grave yet graceful elegance of the different styles, l'urple, which was lately looked U]K>n with disfavor as an inno \a nD(' l""*' "I arirgly in consequence. ha* gradually nor < d us way into public favor, and 1* now recognized a" ?nfi of th" genuine hues of griei. This in to be attributed not only to the bc.uty and becotnlngnes* of the color, but to its possessing the. we quality of contrasting and harmonizing with the standard mourning colors, black and white. This it pos IT" T? WUh bv"u'k'r ??- greater depth of color g.ves it an incalculable advantage over the older F?rdeep which ejects all light shades as jealously as deep grief reject* all consolation, we have seen bombazines of the finest texture a very rich kind of corded silk, called ducabe and tho lustreless silk barathea, a fabric eminently suited for the purpose. For lighter mourning we have seen very elegant flounced brocade robes on a ground of purple . an'1 a 101,0 *,f moire antique in alternate stripes of lavender, ashes of rose, while and black, that was su p- rb. From the mourning hats on exhibition in Bartho lomew's we select n lew remarkable for their beauty. Tne Rachel Pauline is made of heavy English crape, and tnmm.'d in the inside with bows of the same description. , , ' *rmpe' "llnoHt lu,'K? onou*?? f?r a demi-veil, is at tached to the bat, and flung back over the cape, adding Htlll more to the gloomy and funereal character of silk-^r h? 1 A<Th7 ^ Uttt WaS imposed of silk, ,bbeil with velvet; a fall of lace, embroidered with straw, was thrown backwards from the edge over the hat; the capo, trimmed with straw embroidered lace was slightly elevated on one side, to give room for a bow of moire antique ribbon, and on the other side was * feather, tipped with straw. The chenille embroidery mentioned in connection with the other l.ats, is found in mourning establishments also, and enters largely into the composition of mourning bonnets. The "Rachel" if a beautiful specimen of this kiud. The foundation of purple Silk is overlaid with black lace, elaborately em broidwedwith purple chenille and bugles, and loops of chenille carried round the edge of the hat and curtain impart to it a finished look. A bow of broche chenille nbbon is Inserted under tho curtain, and feathers tipped with purplo chenille complete tho outside adornments. DBESHE8. Tho most prominent feature In the dresses for this sea (-on Is the prodigality of trimming. Everything is trim ?ued? flounces, basques, bretelles and sleovos. Of those sumo trimmings we have a most bewildering variety? moire antique, velvet, plush, fringe, ribbon and lace. W e would venture to assert that flounces would be the only stylo th.s season but for the vision of moire antique and rich heavy stripe 1 silks that rise upbraidlngly before us We have seen some brocade flounces which are most exquisite bouquets of flower*, ot the most brilliant hues contrasting beautifully with the dark groundwork of , or ,lark of the main body of the silk Arabesque,, attorns of the most ingenious device* and tripes of all widths, some varied with polka spots or other small figures between the stripes, and oihers ap pealing confidently to public favor on the ground of *i,n y nD,J busting to the unadorned stripe alone Basques are in fashion still and in as great favor as at (lie commencement of their brilliant career. Nothing a* vet has shaken their supremacy-even the stereotyped "i ,i ii i y ?f fashion has been ineffectual against them. "c have a charming novelty in the corsage brHeUm, or braces passing over the shoulder, and extending back an., front to the waist, sometimes falling below it, in square lappets. They are frequently split on the shoul der, and invariably narrow as they approach the waist. Ilioy give full scope Tor the display of trimming, which, as we mentioned before, is a marked feature in the pre sent style. There is also another novelty in the corsage called the nis a Ufrht fitting plain waist,' Ugh to the throat, with rows of buttons, and open at the bottom, la the veet or gilct st5lc. There Is also another style of waist trimming whleh is more beaming and suitable to some figures than the brHHU. It is railed the ' *' "r ' riMU cape, which forms a l/rtbllt. n ront, but instead of reaching to the waist it sweep* grneefuHy round the shoulders, forming a ca'pe. n.l* style we would not recommend to a round shoul oered person. Sleeves-Fashion has not been very rigor on* or despot ic ,n this particular. Che has mercifully at lowed ub quite a number of stylos to choose from. We Will particularl.. a few of the most charming.

The Hleeven are fnrniud of two frills, one while, the other rink.

Wc luvve seen, tf-hich in u woithy rival of the above.

The corsage i- low and trimmed tn IreUUle; the ?lecve* short and looped up witli blue and while ribbon. We have seen, al one of the leading bazaars in Broad way, the following eltgant i/Uk it : ?
