New York Spring Fashions.
The Ladies of New York 1have been
soje tine on the qui vioc, with regard
to the spring fishins, and their anxie
ties were relieved by the notices tha:t
appeared in the Herald of this week,
that on Thursday their friends the mi.
liners would be prepared to satisfy their
curiosity. The day being thus named,
visiting parties were imade up among
th.ladies, and, on the part of the niilli
ners, there has been the grieatest dis
plays of energy to honor thiiem with a
visit. On the part of both, expecta.
tions were wrought ip to the highest
pitch. ~ But, alas ! they were doomed
L to disappointment.
The day, the great. day, was most in
Auspicious, being chilly and windy.
To enhance the discomforts, the Street
Cominissioner, failling in politeness to
the fir sex, had made no arrangements
for having the thoronghfares cleaned,
and the consequeuces of such neglect
may .be easily conceived-the dust
rolleiupbefore the wind in clouds; at
the corners of different streets, particu
larly, the pedestrines had sore trials,
for their clothes were covered and their
eyes became filled with dust. The la
dies wisely forebore venturing out un
dei anch circumstances. A few, how.
ever, who were unable to restrain their
anxiety to see the fitshiuns, satisfied
their curiosity, without being inc. nye
nienoed with the dust, by the help of
carriages, snugly enscunced in which
they bade defiance to the weather.
Thus, in the neighborhood of those
stores in Broadway, Canal, and conti
guous streets, which had been adver
tised as containing the, fashions, lines
of vehicles were stationed all day,
anid, as some drove off with their occu
pants, others drew np.
The show rooms of the advertised
storee presented a truly gay appear
ance. There were displays ( bonnets,
capa, hats, and inantillas, of more col
oro...tho. the rainbow, and the eyes of
the visiters knew not on which to rest,
nor which to admire the most. The
gaiety of the scenes was enhanced by
the bustling about (if the milliners, and
the pleasure and delight which were
dlipsyed on the faces of the elegantly
..e~ssead is,.who were surveying the
difterenVarticles, and ever and ation ex.
amnining wvith unalloyed gratifiention a
hat that had particularly struck thier
'I he prevailling fashions were hats
with .trimmings on the ribbons, em
broidered capes trimmed with ribbons,
deep fronts, close crowns. Straw bont
nets were in abundance and werc trim
med more than nsual. Leghorn were
adorned wi-h fe-athers; ofthers were
trimmed with flowers and fe~athecrs;
orape bonnets had many flowers ouit
side, and were expensively trimnmted
with white flowers; green silk bon-) ets
trimmed with lilac. V'ery few green
bonnets with feathers. French hats,
trimmed with ribbons and flowers,
which, it is supposed will lhe very
much worn, as also a light and dark
shade of liinen hiat. Lilac taimnmed
with white blond and flowers. Black
veila~ will generally prevail. The hats
generally were made with Ihlliing
croWns, rising at the top, close at the
eirs, and principally ribbon bo niiets,
very thin and gossaLmer like. Many
hats, with wreaths all around and orina
mnented with gold ribbons, parItilarly
in the case of straw bonnets, the eflet
of which will be considerably height
The mourning fashions consist of
rich -mourning millinery mantles,
chimisettes, habits and rich flowers.
The bonnets are full, anid there are ve
Ty few with cap crowns. There were
nf thin lace and straw. Tihe mantles
have points arnd ruffles.
Mantles are, generally, of the yoke
Talma shape, and of various colors,
suitable to the dresses of the wearers.

-OxnEki nasP.-We have already no
t :4d 01d6io 'Ai nce, n specimeo of
hemlp of a fine quality made troo" "tig
fibres of the okra or "gumbo'* planti
which grows with so much abundance
in this State, aid requires -so fitf
tie care in its cultivation. We have
before us anther specimen of this
hemlp, and taike this occasion to make a
few renmarks concerning it.
The manner of t-uruing the fibre of
thme okra into hemp is, we Vmderstand,
very simmiple, aid was the discovery of
a gentlemnan named Blanc. He made
the experiment on Colonel MAuun
sel White's plantation, and complete
ly succeeded. Mr. Blane has tak
en out a patent for his invention, and
is now endeavoring to bring it in
The merit of this hemp consists in
the cheapness of its culture; the abun
dance of the raw material; the quick.
ness with which it grows, giving, we
understand, three crops a year, its su
perior yield to the acre, of five times as
much as the Kentucky hemp: the mo
ney saved in its being made near at
home aid not brought from a distance;
its more durable qualities in water or
damp than any other liemip; and its very
easy manfheture into bagging. This last
article is made and needed in such quan
tities, that any sutbstance that will sup
ply it, of eqally good quality and at
cheaper rates than cani be afforded by
the present basis of manufacture, must
becomne a staple in this market, and
one of profitable pursuit.
We append the documents relating
to this discovery, which we find in the
report of the U. S. Patent Oflice:
PARDSu OF PLAQUEmINES, Jan. 24,
18~I>.-Joln Blane, the bearer here
of; raised on my plantation, at Deer
Rang.e, some heautiful specimens of
hemp from the okra plant, and raised
seed entouigh to plant forty or fifty acres
I consider it is valuable as any other
staple raised in this State, and should
have continued file culture were it not
that it interfiered with tihe works I was
coipel led to pursue in the manage
imet. ofl my cane crop.
I ani not able to say how much it
would produce to the aere; but, from
what I saw, I think it would yield
from thirty-five hundred to five thou
sand pounds cleani hcmp per acre, and
require less work than any other

when, with proper apparatus, the la
bor would be less than with either cot.

Mr- Blanc himself is an honest and
industrimous man, worthy of all praise,
and I give him this testimony with

JUSTIA, March 12, 1852.-Mr.
Jean Blanc raised on Mr. 11. Poin
dexter's plantation some beautiful spec
inens of hemp from the okra plant;
and fi-om what little I saw, I think it
will yield from two thousand to three
tify to it lasting longer h% the wftt r, or
ini the damp, than any other hemp I
have ever seen.

Jes-rrn, March I8, 1852.--John

as P.* Poindexter's plantation twen
t y- four hundred and fourteen pounds of
hemp from the okra plant, raised in
six acrecs of laud, planted on the 5th of
.1lly, and was planted so tall that it
dlid ino t make more than half' a crop.
Mr. Blanc is a very honiest man.
I sign t his with pleasmei.
P. II. MILLER.
Mr. HI. Penoyer, of' Union county,
Illinois, publishes in the St. Louis Re
p)u/slicanl his experience and success in
preventing the poitato) rot, le has tes
ied his prevenitive four four years, with
peirfect success, while others in the
smiore field .vhmo neglected it lost their
enitire crop. It is asserted, also that the
irt is nearly double thme size. The
reiiid v is as follows:
"Take ('ne peck of fine sault and
mix it thiouroughly with halfa bushel of
Nova Scotia plaster or gypsum, (the
plaster is thia best,)and i mmrediately
af'tcr hoeing the potatoes the second
time, or just as the young potato be
gins to set, sprinkle on the main vines,
iiext to the grorund, a table spoonful of
the above mixtnre to each lill and be
sore to get it on the main vines, as
it is foumd that the root proceeds from
the string of an insect in the vine, arid
the. miixt ore, :ominig in conitacet with the
vine, kills the effect of it before it reach..
es the pot ato."
Mr. Penoyer asks no ling for his
d'scovery beyond what those who are
benefited are willing to give, and he
desires a test to be made before an
opinion is ihrmned. This is reasonable,
and the experiment cost so little that it
is worth testing.
SAFETY FROM FarioniTF.En HORSES.
-Newell's new safety whiplple-tree is
a very good thing, but the mode adop
ted in Moscow and St. Petcrsburgh is
better, because by it them-e is no ne
eessity that the horse should clear the
carriage arid run away, to his own in
jury and perhaps the loss of life to
somein poor pedestuian he runs over, to
secure the safety of his drivers. It
A round the horse's neck, near the
neck-strap, is lahced a cord with a
running knot. To this slip.noose is
attached a pair of reins, on gen
tlemen's horses generally of silk cord
about the size oIf a pipe-stem, which
always lie thrown over the dash-board,
ready to b~e seized at once. When a
horse starts, and becomes unruly, the
gentleman takes up his cord and tight
