OpnIogr of Fall Fa.Iiions.
Communicated for the N. Y. Mirror, Sept. T.
The "openings", of. fall fashions which are just
now taking place, give little evidence of that elate
of financial embarrae ment about which so much U
iaid. Never were goods received no coetly in qual
ity or so wondrous in quantity. The silken fabric
alone, one drrss of which would have served our
grandmothers as beet" for years, is no longer con
sidered sufficient for their luxurious daughters, but
tauatbe enriched with flowers and etripi-sof velvet,
nd accompanied by untold appliances of art and
Should ihe various exchequers be enabled to
meet the demand made upon tbem by this increase
in taste and magnificence, it will be well, as no
easier ch annels lhan those of art and industry can
b found. But the difficulty is, that the spirit of
emulation prompts those who do not possess the
means to strain every nerre to rival tboie who do,
and then follows a Jong Iht of embarrassments
which finally end in a downfall.
But we did not intend to write a homily, but to
rive our lady readers some idea of the styles for
h J season.
A profusion of trimming seems to be a marked
feature in every department of a lady's wardrobe,
coatly feathers being the attraction in bonnets, rib
bons and buttons, superseding the old styles of
fringe upon dresses, and large quantities Of lace
being used indiscriminately upon all.
The d maoil for feathers had been po great as to
have alrcudy created an unusual ecarcitv, and ten
dollars each is readily paid for the long fancy os
tricb, tipped with marabout, which are considered
the most desirable style. Tbeee generally come in
olid colors, the only fashionable exceptions being
drab lipped with crimson of blue.
Bpnuetsare blowly but very decidedly Increasing
in size, the latest modes projecting ccneideraMy
more over the face, though still retreating at the
side, preserving the piquante and coquettish ap
pearance which has characterised tbem. A fall of
lace is universally worn over the poiiit, to which is
sometimes attached bugle drops, and a bandeau
across the forehead made of velvet or ribbou. The
material are fine; fancy velvets in solid colors,
white, creen, bronze and corn-color, being the nioet
in vogue. Inside the ruches are very full, six and
aeven rows of quilled blonde being frequently ob
served. I'louncts are etill worn, the designs for the sea
eon being exceedingly rich and beautiful; perhaps
they are more generally worn than ever, but they
are superseded in the fashionable world by the
quille robes which have obtained furore. These
are otherwise known as pyramids, and side stripes,
and are imported in very rich velvet designs, on,
robea of plain taffetus. These do not coet so
much to get up as the finest flounced ones, but
ineir novelty makes them bring a high price, and
$100 is required to purchase a handsome one:
f 75 on tlie contrary is sufficient to purchase a very
elegant flounced dress.
There are no signs of a reduction at present in
Ihe size or extent of the skirt; eleven breadths are
allowed by Parisian dressmakers as the ordinary
cumber over a hoop, and these, ladies are univer
sally in fvor of retaining. A large establishment
in miscity baa received orders, which, if it were
five times its present extent, it could no more than
execute. So that there is little sign of their djing
A great deal of taste is displayed in minor ar
tides of toilette, pocket handkerchiefs, gloves, laca,
snoes ana me like. Mxteen dollars were lately
paid for a pair of biiiiai slippers, embroidered iu
Tiolet; and six, eight, ten or twelve are thought
nothing of by the wives of our merchant princes,
iueee slippers are of course not worn out of the
drteriog room, the "Oriental" being tbe style for
me arawing room, and "Louis the Fifteenth" with
their high narrow heels, for the promenade. These
are ricniy ornamented and form a very distinguish
Shawls which have been somewhat decreased bv
the successful advent of cloaks and mantillas of
various descriptions have received another impulse
irom toe lntrouuction ol some new and very stri
king styles, in plush, chenille and netted wool, and
will probably b received into a ureal deal of lavor.
Tbe designs are entirely new and very "distingue,"
as an addition to the costume, for the "uenii
saieon," and tbey merit a e access.
Collars are worn very small, and are beautifully
wrought in exceedingly fine and delicate patterns.
Undersleeves are closed at the wriht, with small
needlework cutis, to match the collar turned over,
and fastened with small cameo or mosaic buttons.
Ilanukerchiefs and veils are worn round at the
corners, and the former are much admired, made
of curious designs in fine needlework, and iuserted
between connecting rows ol Valeusieuues and fine
Basques are worn only for morning dresses, and
then cot quite so deep as formerly. A very pretty
morniug costume is composed ot drab "Lareda"
cloth, or small black and white check, with a side
SVipe and border for the barque, and sleeves of
bright plaid poplin, or plaid ribbon.
lu full toilette, bodies are made high in the neck,
atd buttoued down the front, or worn with a
chemisette and collar, or they are cut square across
the front, and have a chemisette iuserted from the
waist; others are cut low, and worn with tb uew
chenille berthes. or oue of the many pretty fichus,
which retaiu their hold upon public favor iu a sur
prising mauner. The Watleau fichu is a pretty
style, Ligh iu the neck, and fastened with a bow
at the waist. It is composed of lace, black or
wjiite, has a border of two puffings, into which
ribbon is inserted, and an edging of vallenciennes,
or Brussels, if it is black.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1857.
We giye place this morning to an
article from a correspondent relative to
the latest phase of the anti-slavery propa
ganda the Cleveland Emancipation Con
vention. The conclusion which the writer
arrives at that the Convention is an in
dication of the decadence of abolitionism,
we have not seen suggested elsewhere.
We trust that the future action of the ene
mies of slavery may justify it. "We are
amongst those, who, like our correspond
ent regard African slavery as a blessing
to the master and the slave; and have no
idea that it will ever be abolished; but our
views are far, very far, from coinciding
with him on the question of disunion. We
do not, however, propose to enter into a
discussion of the subject, not caring about
doing more, at present, than dissenting
from his sentiments on this branch of his
remarks. We hope the time may never
come when the South shall be driven to
extreme measures; but should it come in
our day, we shall desire some better reme
dy for our ills than disunion.

Our readers saw by a paragraph, in this naner
yesterday, says the Mobile Tribune, 6th inst, that
Mj. Everett is still zealous in behalf of tbe Mount

Washington, he has colucted for the Association
tbe extraordinary sum of $35,000 How few men
of bis position would have devoted their attention
to a work so purely unelfiil ! Our own State has

With her influence and sympathy, it will go hard
if Mobile does not make up the largest contribution

But we also learn that she has exhibited a more
generous devotion to the cause by resolving
to contribute to it a per centage of the sale of

pockets of the people ot the county wiil be suffi

wheat crop of the county for tbe present year would
bring every dollar of it. This would not be a loss
to the people. Tbe value of the land and of the
produce of the country would be sufficiently en
hancod to pay for the road. When will the people
of Wilson one of the largest and wealthiest coun
ties in tbe State rouse up to the importance of this
work f We are now pavine a tax of twentv thou
sand dollars annually, the greater part of which
goes into the State treasury to be legislated away

portions of tbe State. Yes, other counties are
rowing rich out of the money from the pockets of
the people of Wilson county, while we are 60 years
behind the times. They have their railroads, crow
ing in importance and prosperity, while we are
treading the same old path that our fathers trod a
century ago. People of Wilson county when will
you take a bold sUnd for your own interests?
Nxw Cottok. There were eleven bales of the
new crop iu market lats yesterdav afternoon, and
we saw, eaily this morning, a load of five bales

it ought to have commanded. We presume that
the staple will now come in pretty freely. A
planter to-day told u that his "beet hands were
getting 250 lbs. per day, and we suppose 160 lbs.
wouia be about a lair averace. That ought to
bring several hundred bales to Montgomery next
week, provided our planters are disposed to rush

We learn that the eleven bales above alluded to
were sold thia morning by John II. Murphy &. Co.,

For the Patriot.
The farce lauly enacted in the North under the
title of " National Emancipation Convention," is
suggestive of the end of the anti-slavery principle
as a motive element. Under its various names of
Abolitionism, Freesoilism and Black Republicanism,
it has accomplished a great work, and is passiug
away. Another step in the progressive line
and dip union would necessarily result hence,
unless it is the design of Providence that there
should be disunion, the anti-slavery element
must return speedily to harmless inactivity.
This " Emancipation " move, totI failure as it
must needs be, is the fin-t open step in the retro
grade. Abolitionism ban been an instrument in the
hand of God to settle slavery upon the negro race
in the United States forever; its end is now ac
complished, and the instrument is cseful no longer.
I do not design to prove here, the moral right and
justice, or the pol:cy of African slavery, but shall
only state propositions the truth of which has been
abundantly proved any time these thirty years
past, and which is being still more abundantly
proved with every day. Duman slavery is a ne
cessity incidental to the fall of man from his per
fect original estate. Its cause and oiigin will be
found in the first sin "of tbe race, and the conse
quent fall; and it has existed in all ages of the
world. It exists to-day, in some form or other, io
every land inhabited by the children of Adam.
In a n.ilder or stronger form, it ia woi-whora
D , -
In one country it is tbe enslavement of individual
by individual, all f the same race in another it
is the enslavement of a different, and possibly
captured race and in a third it is the legitimate
and God-eanctioned enslavement cf the negro or
Uametic race. Even in the Northern United Statt s
it is not the fact, but only the degree which is a
question. Tbey contend that their slavery is of a
type so mild as not to merit the name we, that
slavery exists therein its worst and most degraded
form. Slavry in the Northern States is the still
clinging incident of the first sin of mankind ia
the incident of sin ; in the South rn States it is
the slavery of a peculiar race set apart by God io
consequence of a peculiar sin, and cursed with in
feriority and servitude ; and hence the institution
exists here by Divine authori y. After the flood
and the second crand starting point cf the hr.msn
race, for an offence very grcvious in His sight
God cursed Tlam and all his descendants with in
feriority and servitude, and gave them as servants
to hia brothers and their descendants forever.
Throughout all the existence of God's chosen peo
ple as a nation. He commanded them to enslave
this race that lie had cursed. Its enslavement is
noticed aud not condemned, by Chritt and by Dis
Apostles; and the condition of bondage, undoubt
edly the bondage of the same doomed race, is no
ticed in Revelations as existing still at the last
great day of the wrath of God. Every where in
the Bible, we see unmistakable signs that God in
tends this curse of inferiority and servitude, which
He certainly pronounced, shall be maintained and
carried out. Ilia enmity to all amalgamation, and
coiihi quent destruction of tbe curse in the Iota of
idenity has been exhibited iu all ages; and amal
gamation is as impossible to-day as it was three
thousand years ago. The designs of Providenco
to continue Uametic servitude, and christianise the
race only in its servile state are plain, and cannot
be thwarted, even by "higher law" philanthropy
African slavery in the United States is a bless
ing to both races to the man and to the master
and we have every reason to believe is sanctioned
snd approved by God. At tbe formation of the
present system of Federal Government, under tbe
influence of a late desperate though successful
struggle to throw off the somewhat tyrannical yoke
of England, a disposition spruDg up in the slave
holding States (then all but one,) to free their own
slaves. This disposition to ceneral emanclnminn
radually increased up to about thirty years ago,
when it had become so prevalent, that bad this na
tional emancipation movement been inaugurated st
that time, instead of the wild and fanatical anti-slavery
crusade, it is probable it might have succeed
ed. But Buch was not the design of God. At the
very point when the Southern emancipation senti
ment was begiuning to act, the Northern abolition
crusade begun. The result is before us. Under
the pressure of northern iusult and aggression.
rong and injustice, southern men have been driv
en to examine the subj'ect and, as a necessary con
sequence of that examination, the conviction of the
Divine eanction the right, justice, and policy of ne
gro slavery has become universal. Abolitionism
has rendered slavery in the Southern States as per
manent as time. It has been but an instrument in
the hand of the Almighty to check and turn the
southern tendency to emancipation icto tbe more
legitimate channel the importation of more slaves,
aud the extension of tbe institution. We are now
convinced that some system of slavery is a necessity
not only to mankind in general, but to the very ex
istence ot a fre government. It is the great con
servative element which preserves, and has always
preserved, every republican government; and as
our system is the best God sanctioned, and a bless
in" both to the slave and master we will maintain
it, aud extend it, at least, until a better is offered.
Aud as no better can be devised than that which
GoJ himself has devised for us. we will maintain it
whila tini lasts. With this view of the subject, I
bavo been convinced for some months past that
the anti-slavery element, baviug accomplished this
great involuntary work, was 'on the retrograde.
This "National Emancipation Convention" has con
vinced me that I was right. Having utterly failed
by their crusade to drive the South to abolition,
they are retreating now to tbe gentler method of
attempting to aid u to emancipate. But it is too
late, and must fail as of course. Where Southern
emancipationists might one have been counted by
the thousand, not a single once can now be found.
A few abolitionists may be found in tbe border
countu 8 of tbe border Southern States but io al
most every instance they are of Northern importa
tion. In St. Louis county. Mo., which contains
more anti-tlavery men than all tbe reft of the South
together, there is probably not a single one wbo is
a Southern-born man. With the failure of this
"National Emancipation" scheme, the activity of
the auti-slavery elemert will most probably cease
altogether or be confined to so few, as to be nei
ther formidable nor dangerous. If such be the case,
there will be no dissolution of the Union and iu
such a result 1 cannot say that I rejjice. The
Southern Slates are now really prepared for disso"
lution, and a grand, magnificent destiny awaits them
when dissolved. The old idea that we are depend
ent upon the North has been completely exploded
by tbe examination which we have been compelled
to make of the subject. TDe North is dependent
upon us, but we are entirely independent of thtm.
We would have nothing to lose in a dissolution, and
everythirg to gain. Tbe North would have every
thing to lose and nothing to cain. It is the knowl- I
edge of thia, gradually dawning upon them, whh J
is causing them to paude before thty have quite i
driven us to the point of Jisunion. It may be that
I am wrong in my reading of this ''Emancipation
Convention," snd that the system of wrong, jus
tice, and iusult will be attempted to be pursued.
If SO. it will then be our duty to separate, and th
sooner the better. Aud then, hurrah for the creat

with cultivation is still dear to the Christian of
eveiy clime, as with wistful eye he gszes upau that
fair and happy land where his possrssio.,8 lie, and

praise, whose light silvers the darkne-s of tbe val

the glory of answered prayer, and the soul with the

The highest enjoyment of a Frenchman is to have
the last cantatrice in a fashionable opera. The
Spaniard's transport reaches its climax when in the
arena tbe matador, with skillful thrust, stretches
his antagonist in tbe dust. The Neapolitan finds
his paradise in the lengthening consciousness of his
maccaroni. The German rises to his heaven on the
cloud of his dreamful pipe and misty metaphysics
The Englishman grows comfortably extatic over
roust beef and naval glory. Tbe Turk ascends to
his seventh heaven among the houris while h
smokes bis Narghilac and sips his mocha. Tbe Af

We find the following outburst in the Missouri
Tomato Magnificence. Beactiful, generous,
tomatoes! The golden apple of the Orient tha
apple of love! They who pout at the tomato are
not yet ripe. Tbey are greener than AdonU
making wrv mouths at Venus-! The tomato it ia
the chief d'euvre of the genius of Ceres. Look at
its color delicate, gorgeous, translucent-Ashaming
the richest satin, Only the hue of the peach, whose
down is a masculine beard in the comparison. And
the tomato is itself tbe cla.-sic oeach. ihe rrrtim
of tbe peerless Greek. Examine its texture with
the microscope its exquisite fineness is infinite!
It is the boundlessne.-8 of j"uicy beauty, intensive.
me teiescope win reveal me last star iu the uni
verse wben the microscope shows the finest fibre
of the tomato. Thus do we discourse, bavin inat
gazed upon about a hulf bushel of most rare toma
toes. They are devised on the most ma.mfWnt
scale. No fabric of human art can approximate
their pride. "Solomon in all bis glory was not ar
rayed like one of these!" What meau they these
richly freighted swelliug zones? Why were tbey
made so large, so full, so biigbt so pure? Why ia
their wealth so gently protected by a tissue Trbich
charms only to invite the robber? The answers
are ready and wonderful, and repay the asking.
Your dull potato wiil last the year round, but your
lovely tomato must come at ouce to the lip or its
sweetness is fled.
