Latost Stylos in Feminine Wear?
>ew Millinery for the Seanon?Tlio Cape
- Again Popular for Autumn Wear? ,
Novcltlea In Dros? GooJ??
[Special New York Correspondence. 1
At tho approaoh of spring and fall tho
part of the costume that seem to requlro
our first attention is assuredly the head?
gear. Tho searching rays of early
Bpring sunshine discovers all the weak
places in our armor, and above all makes
the winter hat look heavy and incon?
sistent with nature. On the same prin?
ciple, a hat worn in summer, however
well preserved, looks forlorn after the
Urst frost, except perhaps for evening
wear. Though to be sure the early fall
[importations show a decided inclination '
ito cling to flower garnitures, but ''the
'flowers that bloom in the spring, have
jnothing to do with the ease." Every
thing is reproduced in velvet, and repre
jsent more particularly autumn flowers,
'fruits and vines; nasturtiums in rich
mahogany and flame lints; salvia, won?
derfully well imitated in its papal scar
Uettone, cocks-comb, golden rod, asters,
chrysanthemums, and many others
?equally suggestive of nature.
Tho new millinery may be classed
Snto three distinct styles: The large
brimmed low crowned hat, trimmed
?with feathers, the small capote, and
the toque bonnet with or without
Of the latter tho illustration given
hero is a good example. This one is
suitable for evening or reception wear.
Tho framework is formed of a coronet
of jet, around which is draped a new
shade of petunia velvet. A butterfly of
of jet ami garnets holds the folds in the
Immediate front and three soft plumes
shading from petunia-to black with an
aigrette, stand rather high in the back.
Narrow bands of velvet fasten under the
Fine Kreuch felts reproduce the pre?
vailing shapes of the summer season,
?and we are told they will be even more
extreme Inter, when felt will be more
It is now deemed essential to have a
'touch of black on most costumes and
many ladies prefer black bats with col?
ored costumes to gain this effect. Costly
cut jet points, and bands or edgings
have faceted stones, pearls and tur?
quoises, set on velvet or silk net These
are used as garnitures for opera bonnets

and have a wonderfully jewel-like ap- j
Shot-velvet ribbons aro quite a promi- |
vent feature of French bonnets and hats, j
Theso aro meant to accompany the cos?
tume trimmed with the same material. |
J Prince of Wales feather clusters aro j
very popular. In fact almost too much j
10. I doubt if they remain a desirable i
feature for long, but the effect was very I
jaunty for tho first fow weeks of their
The largo plcturo hats, so becoming
to a certain typo of American women,
promise to be very expensive affairs. A
few feathers go for nothing, ami a mil?
liner tells mo that her best imported
model in this style would cost seventy*
fivo to one hundred dollars to dupllcato
tho feathers alone.
Sapphire blue is a trying but decided?
ly chic shade this season. Velvet bon?
nets of this shado are trimmed with
gold and sapphiro passementerie.
Many of the now jackets are of such
rich quality and so elaborately trimmed
that they are only appropriate for car?
riage or dressy occasions. "Velvet
cloth" is the new material, so called
from having a velvety finish, comes in
all the brown tints, sapphire blue, sev?
eral prays and greens, dahlia and many
shades of the predominating color, blue.
These are braided or trimtged with rich
Oriental passementeries impossible to
imitate in cheap domestic goods.
For autumn wear the cape appears
again in many new shapes. The design
given here is particularly pretty for a
slender woman. The original model is
dark green velvet cloth lined with tar?
tan surah. The edge is braided in
scroll pattern with copper braid.
The three-quarter length jacket is a
recognized fashion, but I fancy it will
not lie universally adopted except by
tho fortunatos who can alford a variety
of outer garments. These coats have a
tendency to drag the underskirt unless
it is expressly designed and draped.
Uroadcloth is to be extensively used
for elegant long wraps. These are some?
times lined with fur or plush, trimmed
with deep cape collars of fur orsiik-cord
As a dressy wrap over a silk gown we
give the accompanying model.
A tight-fitting black velvet jacket is
edged all around with a deep fringe of
silk and jet pendant'. The sleeves are
Chantilly lace over armure silk. Deep
frills of lace come from under the velvet ,
bands below the elbow, and a eorre- 1
sponding frill falls down the front.
Vandyke points of the finest jet are set
around the arm hole, and high collar.
A crownless toquo of black velvet and
Prince of Wales feathers completes this
Flounces are appearing on all classes
of gowns except cloth, and small panier
draperies are gradually creeping in.
They aro so moderate as to he hardly
noticeable, but it is an indication that
straight, skirts are not to last ad in fin
Uum. The ultra-fashionable woman has
most of her gowns to sweep the ground at
the back, but common sense is fast pre?
dominating and the result is a gown
that clears the pavement till around.
Silk and woolen plaids are remark?
ably rich this season. The patterns are
rather large, but the coloring subdued.
The genuine tartans are also shown in
fine wool and silk.
Drapings of some kind or other ap?
pear on the majority of new bodices. A
favorite style is to draw the shIrrings to
a sharp point in front, which hides the
waist line, and is only becoming to
slender women. F. F. II.
General Slierni 01's I ileus About Inter
Some time in the winter of ISS2 and
iss:; the New York Sun published a par?
agraph to the effect that General Sher?
man had been privately confirmed in
the Koman Catholic church. A reporter
for tho National II.'publican in Wash?
ington city was sent by Frank Hal ton to
see the old General at his Fifteenth
streel residence where John Chamber?
lain's hotel now stands, to have him
son firm or deny the story. General
Sherman knew the young man and very
politely gave him a chair in his parlor:
hut when tho reporter handed him a
marked copy of tho New York Sun and
asked him to state whether or not that
was true, tho grizzled old warrior arose
in his w rath and walking to the doon,
nervously said: "Mow long must 1 live
in this land lie fore the newspapers of
the country will get it through their
heads thajt I am not. to be interviewed
on any subject? It ?night to be well
known by this time that I hate news?
papers, and am sorry for any young man
who goes into the newspaper business.
I don't care a darn whether the papers
ptil me down for a Koman Catholic or a
howling Methodist. It Is none of their
business what I am, and I do not intend
to tell them. There is a strong suspi?
cion abroad in.this country that I am a
soldier, or that I have been a soldier,
and I will not even take the trouble to
deny that rumor. Good evening, young
man. good evening: and don't come hero
again for an interview unless it bo a
social interview not for publication.

It. is not generally known, but it. is a
fact, that Jav Gould started out in life
in pursuit of an education, and with the
intention of becoming a man of letters.
In fact nearly ali of the foremost specu?
lators and wealthy men of the day wen;
of literary beginnings. In 1 SAO Jay Gould
published a history of Delaware County
when he certainly could not have been
much more than twenty or twenty-one
years of age. lie started out in life
with a strong local patriotism and he
went through that wild ami mouiltnin
DIIS country making map3 id it to accom?
pany his literary work, lie revered tho
founders and leaders of his native
sountry and wrote them up like a true
hero-worshiper. Ho was a very bright
young fellow and it did not take him
long to find out that he was throwing
iway his time and talent upon a people
who cared nothing for literature and
education, in comparison with worldly
success and the making of money.
When this idea fully dawned upon and
took possession of him, young- Gould
dropped his books and all things per?
taining to literature and devoted his
energies to the accumulation of wealth,
lie is a man of such characteristics, such
strength id will, such breadth of intel?
lectual vision, that he would have sue

In February, i
1S4S, tho third
tion drove Louis
THBCOMTEWEl'AIUS. 1Mlilippe, King
of the French, from his throne. Tho '
deed of abdication which he signed
claimed recognition as King for tho |
Com to do Paris; and greatly against tho
wishes of tho nine-year-old lad, ho was
hailed "Loui9 Philippe the Second,
King of the French!" This was on
Fohrury 24, 1848; but the National j
Assembly would not havo it so, and the j
second Republic was proclaimed, Febru- '
ary tili, IS48. Tho Duchesse d'Orleans 1

France, at lirst to Kisonach, in Ger?

Claremont the Coin to do Paris and his I
brother, tho Due do Chartres, spent ten i
years. After their toother's death, in
1858, they traveled extensively through
In September, 1S01, the two young- '
Princes, under the care of their
uncle, tho Prince do Joinvillc, crossed
tho ocean, desirous of beholding the
operations of actual war. They brought
letters to General McClellan, and, at
his suggestion, accepted positions on his
staff as volunteer aides, with the rank j
of Captain, stipulating that they should j
receive no pay, and should bo free to re
sign at any time. The commissions of j
tho Cotnte do Paris and the Due do j
Chartres bear date September 2S, 1801.
"With thorn on McClellan's staff were
Captain Martin T. McMahon and Captain
John Jacob Astor.
For six months the two volunteer 1
aides saw little* active service; hut in
April, IStVJ, they wero present at the j
siego of Yorktown, and took active part <
in the battles around Richmond, the
Due do Chartres capturing more than
one prisoner, the Com to do Paris charg?
ing with Ihittcrflold's brigade at Galncs
Mill, and both Princes assisting in
steadying the Union lines on more than
one occasion during the seven days1 bat?
At last, on duly 2. 1SC2, McClellan's
rntrcat from Richmond was complete.
Then tho Com to do Parts and his brother
resigned their commissions, influenced
chiefly in doing so by the Increasing
coolness bet ween Franco ami the United
States over the interference of the for?
mer country in the affairs of Mexico,
and returned at unco to their own land.
In May. 1st-,}, the Com to de Paris
married Iii-; cousin Marie, daughter of
tho Due do Montpcnsier, who. has
borne him six children, the oldest of
whom is the Queen of Portugal, w hile
the second, his oldest son, is that Due
[l'Orloana who has recently been im?
prisoned for returning to Franco in de?
fiance of the Expulsion Act of lsso.
When the Franco-Prussian war broke
out, the Comto do Paris offered his
services to his country; but they were
declined. Late in 1ST!, however, tho
Comto obtained a seat in the National
Assembly, and was commissioned
Colonel and placed on the retired list of
tho French army.
On August ?"">. l^Ttt. the Comto do
Paris, bead of the Orleans branch of tho
royal house of France, met Henri,
Comto do Chamliord, head of tho house
of bourbon, at Frohsdorf, near Vienna,
and formally recognized the latter as
tho head of tho French royal line, and
lie juri King of France, .lust ten years
later, on tbe I irtliday of the Com to do
Paris. August 21, l^st. tho Com to do
Chamliord died, ami tbe Comto do Paris
succeeded to his rights.
