Less than a year ago Paris was hum?
bled in the dust, and all ber fine drapery
was soiled and tumbled; but now, presto!
they are beginning to - sot the fashions
.gain over there, and correspondents
write column articles as of y oro, in which'
bewildering mention is made of dresses
arid head-dresses, nod parasols and
gloves and bonnets, and so on to the end
of tho charming category, for all the
world as naturally as if no hideous war
bad intervened. It is stated, for in-1
stanoe, tbat full dress is to be riob, but
quiet, for concerts and tbe opora. At
the last Friday night in the Chumps
Elysees promenade oonaerts the dresses
were glace shot silks, made with flounces
and pannier tunics. Tho prevailing
abades were ligbt slate, shotted with
black, and chestnut with lilao; two dif?
ferent greens in the bronze tints are in
great demand, and there are two linnet
browns, whieh are the soberest of oolors.
Blaok, however, reigns. Blaok grena?
dines are trimmed with lace; and rich
black poult with grenadine plisses. Kb
crinoline is worn. ' Train robes are not
seen unless at. exceptionally ceremonial
recaptions. Flowers are very?argo when
worn at all; parasols are large; the deer
and doe-Bkin glove is preferred td kid;
note-paper is tinted sea-green and
almond peel; tbe fall style of bonnets
will be very large behind, the shades
b?ing dark and rich.

yesterday. Excitement, whiob had boen

?' ?how the slow progress of the fever; It
. 'now appears that up to Saturday lust, the
26th ultimo, there , were nine deaths
from yellow fover. Three of the nine
took place between Augaat 1 and August
19, and the remaining six in the follow?
ing week. For the ourrent week tbe
.mortality will be 'greater; but it is
' officially stated, that there were on'y
thirty-three new cases of fever in tho
weok ending on Wednesday nightlaat.
This is a very cheering exhibit, os the
proportion of deaths to the entire num?
ber of patients is steadily decreasing.

An amusing soene recently occurred
ina conrt room in this State. >
Judge Orr was trying a very impor?
tant caso, and Qon. McGowan was mak?
ing a very eloqnont argument in the
case, - when one of the colored jurors,
unobserved by reason of tho crowd, left
the jury box and went out of the conrt
house. The Judge observed the juror's
vacant scat una immediately sent the
constable to arrest the absentoe. When
brought in, the juror was asked by bis
Honor if he did not know that he ought
not to leave his soat while the case was
being argued. Tho juror promptly re?
sponded: "Well, boss, I was tired a
be&rin' that man argufy bore; I madu np
my mind long ago, aud I was 'bliged to

THBFIIAO.-The truly loyal preserver
of the Union will talk to yon by the
hour about the glories of the 4'old
flag," and point to it SB the emblem of
peace and forgiveness, and yet these
same loyalists are loodand fusty in their
demands that the flag shall be placed at
every preoinot in the Sooth, with offi?
cient bayonet backing to make the "re?
bels" vote the loyal ticket. If the "Stars
and Stripes" be an emblem of "peace
and forgiveness," make it so practically.
It is this looking one way and rowing an?
other that has prevented a complete re?
turn of peaoe to every part of the Union.
It is stated os a curions fact that of
26,200 victims of the yellow fever in
Baenos Ayres, during the past soason,
nine-tenths of the number were men.
Tho disease increased in virulence with
changes in the weather, from tho ex?
posure of the river mud, by a sudden
fall in the river, with the stirring of the
beds of filth, etc., all showing its de?
pendence upon other cannes than per?
sonal contagion. Of the 360 gravo-dig
gsrs constantly omployed, not one died,
thus proving that the grave-yard was the
healthiest plano to live in.

MR. EDITOR: A ?ow dave since, atten?
tion was called ia your valanblo journal
to .what is: properly termed "Railroad
Manoeuvres*'-showing how the stock of,
the Charlotte Railroad is being bought
np by tho Ponnsylvania Central Road, or :
other parties. The stockholders aro evi?
dently being imposed Upon. It ia the
olear dnty of tho directors of tho road to
moot and warn tho stockholders, or to
call them together.'with a view Of pre?
venting tho sacrifico of - tho-?took. It is
worth at least ' 850. perchare,- sud if tho
stockholders will refuse to sell for less,
thia new railroad ring will have to pay
tho valu? of the stock-at 'least $D0 per
Mlu.ro. The road will deolare a dividend
in October. Let the stockholders be
cautious. Tho President und directors
have claimed that tho stnok will bring
$50 per share at least. Confidential ad?
vice to sell at $10 ongbt not to be regard?
ed. The ring wants about 5,000 shares
moro to got control of the road; to get
this amouut they will have to pay what?
ever the stockholders will demand in
roason. We cauuot prevent rascality;
let us, nt least, compel those concerned
to pay well before they got control of the
road. t his is plain talk, hat it is truth.
The ring must go ou; they cannot stop
now. Fix rx reasonable price for thu
?took, and they will come up to your
mark. Don't sell below $50.
