The Latest New York Fasiiiox
Gossip. At this season of the year
there are very few fashionable novelties
worthy of mention. There are some
slight changes in bonnets, confined prin
cipally to trimming. The strings which
tie the Pamela and Lamballe b'onnets
on to the head, are now worn very nar
row, the ribbons barely measuring one
inch and a half in width. Either Cen
oiton chains are suspended underneath
these narrow strings, or else long tulle
or lace lappets are crossed over the chest.
The Benoitons are frequently composed
of a crossband of velvet, ornamented
with narrow fringe, this passes under
the chin, and is fastened with an agrafe
to each side of the bonnet.
At the sea side, and at the fashion
able inland watering-places, bonnets
are more popular than they have been
for many preceding seasons. The rea
son for this is, that they are now reduc
ed to mere picturesque head-dresses,
and are not bonnets at all. It is at the
Spas principally that these fanciful
head-dresses are to be seen tied to the
back of the head with long tulle stream
ers ; the narrow strings alluded to
above, being tied at pleasure either un
der the chin or under the chignon.
JPeplums are now added to nearly all
dr3sses intended for out-door wear.
This peplum is, to name it more correc
tly, a basque which is attached to the
waistband, and the waistband is worn
above the dress. It is an excellent con
trivance for warm weather, as nothing
more is added over the shoulders when
out of doors to the simple body, just as
it is worn in the house. This pepfum
basque can be added to almost any va
riety of bodice, even to a white one.
When the body is plain and matches
the skirt, then the peplum-baxque re
places the paletot, and is worn out of
doors, as we remarked previously, with
out any other mantle or covering.
Peplums are often very richly deco
rated. A favorite style in Paris for j
silk peplums is to surround them with
a wreath, which follows the contour of
the jyepliim. This wreath is made up
of either ivy or vine leaves mixed with
the ditierent fruits, and is produced in a
novel style of embroidery, which is
worn in thick silk, soutache and beads.
The embroidery is black, the beads
white, and the leaves represented with
these white beads produce a very nov
el and distinguished effect.
There are a great many varieties of
white bodices now in vogue. Among
the simplest and most ladylike are
those made ol spotted wane mus
lin with collar, cuffs, epauletts, and the
band down the front in line linen, back
stitched and embroidered. More dres
sy bodices are made quite plain, with
chevrons or braiulebourgs of fine gui
pure inserted into the clear muslin.
White dresses for outdoor wear cut
with acasaque which tits the figure, and
above the casaque a wide waistband
made of white ribbon corded and bro
caded with color is worn ; the sash
ends falling at the back. If the lower
half of the skirt is bouilloiiniee, then a
collored ribbon to match the cording of j
the waistband is introduced into the j
pr flings. I
Military Life in South America.
A letter from a Brazilian officer de
scribes some of the beauties of soldier
ing in South America : " Amphibious
creatures abound. In my own tent i
have already killed four snakes. Every
mornini; I find myself accompanied bj
a body guard of titleen or twenty mou
strous toads, which have quietly speiii
the night under the corners of the hidet
that serve me as a bed. Enormous a!
ligators promenade regularly from lake ;
to'lake every night. In a major's tent j
the other day, one was killed that meas
ured about six feet in length, and an tin
fortunate Brazilian soldier was nnex j
pectedly taken oil his legs by one o: r
these horrible creatures and carried into ;
the nearest lake." j
TTrRSP:-FTJT?sH Pakis. The ore-
n'ect of police in Paris has issued certain

ho"se-flesh is permitted in the city. The
animals are t o be killed n public slaughter-houses,
in the presence of competent
covernment officials, after a previous :
examination, tne meat is 10 oe siampeu
before its removal, which is to be effec
ted in close vehicles, and the shops
which are allotted for its sale will be in

The Revival op Leprosy. It is
stated in some of the foreign journals
that this terrible disease of the scriptu
ral era, and which was endemic through
out Europe from the tenth to the six
teenth century, is now developing itseli
in various parts of the world with all its
ancient niidehe chaiaacns-tHF. It
prevails extensively in two widely sun
dered countries, the West Indies and
Norway. In the latter, according to
statistics recently published, there are
no less than two thousand lepers, llvr
tubercular form of the disorder, whicl
is much more common, and unfortunate
ly much more horrible than that whic'
eiiects tne joints, is pi-oiiuujtcu ujr m
physicians incurable. Meanwhile, it i
satisfactory to know that it is not coi
tagious. Mullitudes of lepers perishe
miserably in the early ages, abaudone
to. their fate in consequence of the tin
versal belief that whosoever touche
them must necessarily share in their c:
lamity. The malady is very rare i
this couutry, and it is hoped that it wi !
be a Iohst tune before we are ,ai3icte ;
with this scourge." :

stamp duty being the highest rates required for
such instruments, or either of them. In such a
