THE PRESIDENT STEADILY PRO GUESSING. Another Hood Day Fite Receives Extra Nourishment— Likely to be Removed Soon How Whisky Saved Him—Hope Changing to Confidence. Washington, August 31. —The President has passed a very comfortable day, a much better day than yesterday. To night his condition is pronounced admirable by three of the surgeons. He has made a stride to wards recovery. This morning he chewed a piece of beefsteak and swallowed the juice, the nearest return to solid food for many days. The question of his removal is again being considered by tbe physicians. He will be removed at tbe earliest possible moment consonant with safety. Tbe trip on the Tallapoosa, while not wholly decided upon, seems to be the one most favored and the most likely to be adopted. The only really new feature in the case is the discovery, first noted by the President himself to-night, that the wash used In the gland found its way into the mouth. There Is no danger that pus will flow into the mouth through that opening, the surgeons say, because It is above the surface of sup puration, and the pus will naturally flow downward. At a late hour to-night the President’s favorable condition continued. REVIEW OF THE DAY. The Improvement of the President during the past twenty four hours has been very marked, and the feeling of hope, which has been steadily growing since Saturday, Is now fast strengthened into a feeling of con fidence. The patient had a quiet, restful night, and his condition, as shown by the official bulletin this morning, was much better than yesterday. Tne parotid swell ing bad decreased materially in size and Improved very much in appear ance. The irritation caused by it, and by the cutting ar.d surgical manipulation of it yesterday, had subsided. His pulse had fallen to ICO, and all the patient’s symptoms indicated a more de cided change for the better than even the most sanguine of his friends had dared to anticipate. Most of the members of the Cabinet called at the Mansion, as usual, aoon after the appearance of the morning bulletin, but none made a long stay, aud some after reading the bul letin went to the departments without en tering the Mansion at all. The only changes which occurred in the Presidmt’s condition during tbe forenoon were in the direction of a furl her improvement. Tne parotid swell ing had diminished so much in size that the patient could, msve his jaws with consid erable facility,and feeling this to be the case be asked for a little beefsteak. A small piece was given him and he chewed it and swal lowed tbe jnice. lie also swallowed the u*ual quantity of beef extract and milk. His pulse during the morning gradually fell, until at noon it reached the lowest point it has reached since the Bth of August, viz: 95. This, together with the other favorable features of the noon bulletin, so far allayed public apprehension as to greatly diminish the number of callers at tbe Mansion during the afternoon, and the room of the Presi dent’s private secretary was practically de serted even by oewspaper correspondents. In interviews with a reporter of the Asso ciated Press at different times during the afternoon, Dr. Bliss made in substance the following statement iu regard to the Presi dent’s case: “Tbe President to-day is de cidedly better. The parot'd swelling has discharged very freely, and has been re duced to twe-thirds of its maximum size, ard is still diminishing. I don’t think from its present appearance that any more incisions will be necessary. The wound is doing very well, and good, healthy granulations are again visible. I cannot say that it is heal ing rapidly. It could hardly be expected to do that yet, but if we have a few more days as good as this, the process of healing wilt go on quite fast enough. Tbe pus dis charged by the wound is natural and healthy. I think the President has gained a little since yesterday in strength. When we turned him over on his side to day to dress his wound he voluntarily gave us some assistance, and he bad not done that before in a good while. It is too soon to look for a decided gain in strength. That will come at the proper time. The question of removing the patient from the White House is being seriously considered agatu. He himself is anxious to go, and we are anxious to move him. It has not yet been decided whether bis re moval can be made more advautageously by water or by rail. Each method has some dleadvantages. The ocean air would, 1 have no doubt, do him good, but he could not stand a heavy sea. On the other hand, I think that in a specially suit ed car he could be moved without danger by rail. Ilfs own wish is to go to Mentor, aud ultimately he will, doubt less, be taken there. But his first removal will, probably, be to some near point. lie will be taken somewhere at the earliest moment compatible with perfect safety, and if he has a few more as good days as this has been, that time will not be very remote. The patient has taken about the same amount of food to-day as here'o fore, but its character has been more varied. He chewed a piece of beefsteak ar.d swal lowed the juice this morning, and had a plateful of ecup at three o’clock this after noon, in addition to beef extract and milk, which we give him regularly. Later In the day or to-morrow morn ing we shall let him have some oyster broth and more milk toast. We continue to administer stimulating ene mata, six teaspoonfuls of whisky every four hours, and attribute largely to this feature of the tre itmcnt the recent Improvement In his condition. “I have received a number of letters to day commenting unfavorably upon our use of alcoholic stimulants in this case, but the writers never having seen the patient are not qualified to judge as to the wi6dom of the measures which we have taken. During the recent period of exhaus'.lon any reduc tion in the quantity of whisky given was fol lowed prouipTy by a warning of danger in the shape of a high, feeble and fluc tuating pulse. It was largely by stimulants that he was kept up during tbe worst s'ages of glandular inflammation.” In conclusion, Dr. Bliss said that he was perfectly satisfied with the progress which the President had made to-cay. There was no material change In the patient’s condi tion this afternoon until about four o’clock. He chewed another piece of beefsteak, swal lowing the juice as before, and had four ounces of oyster broth, which he greatiy relished. His pulse rcse gradually after four o’clock, and at the evening examina tion stood at 109. There was, however, no noticeable increase ot temperature, and all the other symptoms continued favorable. Since the evening bulletin his pulse has fallen again to 104, and will, It is thought, be below 100 by midnight. In an interview with a reporter of the As sociated Press this evening, Dr. Reyburn, In reply to questions, said that no importance whatever should be attached to the fact, mentioned in the 6:30 bulletiu, that tbe gland has made an opening spontaneously into tbe mouth. No pus has found its way through this opening, and it is not likely that any will, for tbe reason that (it can escape much more easily through the exter nal outlets. The opening Into the month is about the middle of the cheek, and in the position in which the patient lies the most of the time. There are two or three external openings lower down, which draw all the pus from the part of the gland with which the mouth is in communication. No daDger whatever, of any kind, is apprehended from this new feature of the glandular suppuration. The pus. Dr. Reyburn 6ays, is not likely to get Into the mouth, and, even if it should, it would do no barm. At this hour, 11:30 p. m., the President’s pulse is nearly down again to 100. His temperature and respira tion are normal and his condition Is as satis factory as at an time during the day. STEADY GROWTH OF CONFIDENCE. 10:45 a. m. [Unofficial Bulletin.] — The surgeons regard the President’s condition this mornieg with increased satisfaction and encouragement. The parotid swelling has steadily improved in appearance, and it Is thought that the patient has In all other respects gained ground slightly during the past twenty four hours. He is thus far having a quiet, comfortable day. Among the members of tbe Cabinet and the Presi dent’s personal friends there is a growing feeling of encouragement and confidence, and it seems to be the general Impression that by Saturday or Sunday, when the glandnlar swelling shall have ceased to be a hindrance, tbe patient will enter on the stage of convalescence. Poatmaster General James called at the Executive Mansion this morning, bnt upon receivings bolleti. at the door, he said: “That is good enough; I’ll go to the depart ment and go to work,” and he drove away without coming up stain. SAVANNAH, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1881. A FAIR IMPROVEMENT. 12:30 p. m. [Official Bulletin.]—At the ex amination of the President this morning the parotid swelling was found to be discharg ing freely. It looks well, and has materially diminished in size. Tbe wound remains in about the same state. His general condition Is evidently more favorable than at this hour yesterday. Pulse 95, temperature 98.4, res piration 17. D. W. Bliss. J. K. Barnes. J. J. Woodward. Robt. Reyburn. F. H. Hamilton. D. Hayes Agnew. THE QUESTION OF HIS REMOVAL. 2:30 p. m.—ln an interview with a reporter of the Associated Presg, at 2:15 p. m., Dr. Bliss said that the President’s condition is highly satisfactory, and that he is making very favorable progress In every way. The parotid swelling has been reduced two thirds of Its maximum size, and is steadily diminishing. The patient continues to take food well, and has made a slight gain in strength. The question of his removal from the Executive Mansion is again being seri ous’y considered. The President himself wishes to go to MeDtor, but, although he will, doubtless, be taken there eventu ally, his first removal will be to a snorter distance. It will take place at the earliest possible moment. Tbe patient’s pulse at noon went down to 95 for the first time since the B.h of August, and is still below 100, with all the other symptoms cor respondingly favorable. MOKE FAVORABLE BION3. 6:30 p. m.—The President has passed a better day than for some time past. He has taken his food with an increased relish, and the usual afternoon rise of temperature did not occur. At the evening dressing the fluid ued to wash out tbe parotid abscess found ita way into the mouth, which it did not do this morning, showing that an opening into the mouth has sponta neously occurred. The abscesa is dis charging freely, and the swelling continues to diminish. There is some increase in the discharge of pus from the wound. Pulse 109, temperature .98.6, respiration 18. D. W. Buss, J. K Barnes, J. J. Wo id ward, Robt. Reyburn, Frank H. Hamilton, no febrile rise. 6:45 p. m. [Unofficial Bulletin.] —The evening dressiug has been completed, and tbe official bulletin is being prepared. The President has passed an exceedingly good day. The usual febrile rise has not oc curred this evening. The pulse is slightly higher. The temperature is about normal. The discharge from the wound haa been more free during tbe afternoon. no marked change. 9:30 p m.—Dr. Reyburn reports the con dition of the President not materially changed during the evening. Ills pulse has fallen slightly. All his symptoms are favor able. no adverse symptoms. The following was sent this afternoon to Minister Lowell by Secretary Blaine: ‘‘The Prtaident'a condition ia very encouraging tc-day. His pulse is down to 95, lower than It has been for several weeks. His temperature and respiration are normal No adverse symp toms are apparent at this hour, two p. in.” LESS FEVER THAN ON ANT DAY YET. 8 cretarv B’alne sent the following to night to Minister Lowell: “Tbe President has less fever this evening than upon any evening since he was wounded.

The learned doctor says: “Keep some kind of a tonic medicine always In the bouse, and if anyone feels unwell, make free use of It. But first be sure that it Is both harmless as well as meritorious. Put no trust in alcoholic preparations; their use will lead to intemperance; neither be partial to any remedy that produces a severe cathar tic effect, for prostration of the nervous system aud digestive organs is sure to fol low.

London, August 31.—The Manchester Guardian, in its commercial article to-day, says: “The manesavres in tbe Liverpool cotton market are being watched with in terest. The point upon which all accounts agree is that of 400,000 bales for the August and September deliveries, sold in the spring months by the ‘bears.’ Somewhat over 200,000 bales have been tendered and taken up, and the rest will have to be provided or settled for before the close of September. The point of interest is at what time these outstanding engagements will be closed, as hereafter it is expected that the price of cotton will decline more or less rapidly.” Peasant Relief in Russia.

The rates from other points to those named and to others are propor tionate. An Odd Marriage. Among the crowds who thronged to see the antics of the Zulus at a Brook lyn museum last wintdV was an Italian girl named Anita G. Corsini, 18 years old, a music teacher by occupation, and the daughter of a Mr. Corsini who is in business in New York. One of the black warriors, known as Zulu Charley, won her admiration and love, aud she spent many quarters from her hard earned savings to see the dusky object of her affection. Charley did not repel her attentions, and they swore to be true to each other. Mr. Corsini, however, did not regard with favor the prospect of a marriage between his daughter and a negro, and did everything in his power to dissuade her from carrying out her intentions. Last Wednesday, however, the couple eloped, but while on their way to a minister’s house they were arrested at the instance of Anita’s father. When the case came up the following morning in the Jefferson Market Court the father wanted to have the girl sent to Blackwell’s Island, but upon her promising to obey him and leave the Zulu he changed his mind and took her home. But she again met Charley, and accompanied by another Zulu, called Usikali, and Charles Richards, a white man, they went to the residence of the Rev. R. O. Page, in Brooklyn,and asked to oe married. The minister consented, but he seems to have made a mistake, for he addressed all the questions to Usikali instead of Charley, and then pronounced him and Anita man aud wife. On learning his mistake, how ever, he performed another ceremony between the right parties. The newly married couple then went to the muse urn, where the bridegroom took part in the usual Zulu war dances. Some years ago President Garfield said, iu an address: “The great danger which threatens this country is that our sovereign may be dethroned or destroyed by corruption. In any monarchy of the world, if t#ie sovereign be slain or become lunatic, it is easy to put another in his place, for the sovereign is a person. But our sove reign is the whole body of voters. If you kill, or corrupt, or render lunatic our sovereign, there is no successor, no regent, to take his place. The source of our sovereign’s supreme danger—the point where his life is vulnerable —is at the ballot box,where his will is declared, and if we cannot stand by that cradle of our sovereign’s heir apparent and pro tect it to the uttermost against all assas sins and assailants, we have no govern ment and no safety for the future.” These words may be placed among the memorabilia of the President, should he die or live. The “great danger” to which be so earnestly refers is a present danger to the voters of the United States. There is no safety, in truth, with a cor rupted universal suffrage. For some years we have been regular ly informed by Republican organs that so long as the South remains solidly Democratic, Democratic success in gen eral elections is impossible. Yet the Re publican managers are energetically laboring to divide the South, and, according to their organ’s assertion, to assure the choice of a Democratic Presi dent in 1884. So desirous are they of breaking Southern solidity that they have even formed coalitions with the Virginia debt repudiators, the North Carolina liquor distillers and dealers, and the Mississippi Greenbackers. But it is, perhaps, as idle to look for consistency as for honesty in Republican politics. The manufacture of artificial ice promises to be one of the great Southern industries of the future. The New Orleans Ice Factory Company can now produce 45,000 tons per annum, and they can deliver to consumers biocks of one hundred pounds or more of fine ice. It is claimed that manufactured ice is superior to Northern ice, and it is furnished so cheaply that it controls the New Orleans market against North ern ice. The debt of Great Britain does not de crease materially. In the last quarter of a century it has diminished less than $500,000,000, but needless wars in the meantime have added $200,000,000 to it. Gladstone thinks $300,000,000 will be paid in the next twenty five years, but how can he tell what complications and disasters may supervene during that pe riod. Alluding to the drought now prevail ing in the West, the Cincinnati Times Star says: “Panting flocks stand upon the sun scorched hills, hungering for pastures green, and the parched corn fields stretch their yellow blades toward the skies in silent appeals for rain. The whole country is a land of burning sun shine and glare and clouds of dust, like the deserts of the East. ” Eliza Pinkston announces that she is de sirous of marrying “a smart, educated and industrious man. ” It i* to be feared that Honest John Sherman hasn’t done his whole duty by this noble Republican girl. AUTUMN FASHIONS, JENNY JUNE SHOPPING IN PARIS After the Latent Novelties—An Inter* ter view with Worth —The Great Dressmaker Tells What will be Worn This Fall and How It will be Worn. Paris, August 22. —The best of a good thing is that which improves with age, or at least re tains some quality that renders it pleasing and desirable. Judged by this test present fash ions—by which I mean popular fashions, those which are seen in the shops and everywhere on the highways and byways where a dozen women are gathered together—are utterly without merit, for a more despicable lot of rubbish than the “fashions” of the season look like when the “season” is over it would be hard to find in any old clothes reservoir. Of course there are always good things and beautiful things to be had for money in the best shops of Paris, but so there are also in London and New York, and in London one stands a much better chance of finding some thing “nice” which has been “left over” and will be sold at a reduction. In Paris a good thing always brings its price, probably because of the number of strangers who come to do their shopping at all seasons; and in August, when residents have gone to the seaside and only strangers are buyers, the Parisian shop keeper pulls out his old shop-worn goods, buys cheap auction lots, and displays them in huge quan tities upon what he calls “oc-ca-ze-ons;” which occur every day until the stuff is disposed of at good figures. Things that no American lady would look at in New York are purchased here under the illusive Paris glamour and are cer tainly regretted afterwards. THE BON MARCHE. The great American shop in Paris is the Bon Marche, an enormously large concern, which probably originated the idea of the great bazar-like shops of which there are now so many in Paris and all large cities. What such a place would look like out of the season in New York. I know pretty well, but I was rather curious to find out what it would look like in Paris. So yester day morning in the rain my concierge got me a cab and I made my way through the Champs Elysees, past the ruins of the Tuilleries, across the river, through narrow streets to the Rue du Bae, where, at its junction with several other streets, the famous shop is situated. “Out of the way.” as it is, aud notwithstand ing the weather, it was full of buyers, prlnci- Eaily Americans and English, every department avingone or more English speaking salesmen, who are often called upon to interpret or ac company parties of ladies from one depart ment to another, although there are also “commissionaires” whose special business this is. It was an “oc ca-ze-on,” and the tumult was appalling. The quantitv of gloves, stockings, neckties, lace cravats, flowers, bonnets, jack ets, cotton costumes, alpaca suits, poplins, pongees, and fancy woolen goods, was suffi cient, one would have supposed, to supply a new world after a second deluge, and among them all there was not one solitary thing to remember or wish to have for a possession. The eternal high-colored neckties, trimmed with lace or embroidered with silk, and gilt upon the ends; the hosiery tied in .bundles, in stripes and colors; the bunches of red roses and yellow butter-cups; the glaring ribbons shaded in all the hues of the rainbow; the buckles and pocketbooks; the cotton lace upon wide bunting collars and cuffs; surely it was not worth while to come from New York to Paris to see them 1 The bonnets were hideous beyond belief— coarse, cruel and depraving in their common brutal ugliness. There was no redeeming feature ■ bout them, except their price, which ranged from one dollar and a half to three dollars. Naturally, they were not intended for city or dressy wear, but for excursions, or the seaside; nevertheless, there nas no neces sity for makiDg them so vulgar that the mere wearing of it would seem like degredation. The material was very coarse black or white straw; the shape that of a large projecting scoop or flour shovel, the trimming a ruons.rous Alsatain bow or wide scarr, in stripes or high colors, so arranged as to nearly cover the broad front. The lining was nearly flesh color,terra-cottaret, or bronze. What has caused this eruption of ugly bon nets, and how is it that they are worse in Paris than in London? The cotton costumes match the bonnets. They are “shop” in style; that is, fussy and common place and seem made up as the majority of made-up dresses do every where,of goods that would not sell in the piece. The cloak department was almost equally forlorn. There were some pretty little sum mer wraps in silk and satin, but none equal to what I had seen at the house of A. f. btewart & Cos. before leaving home, and the prices showed little difference. There was nothing novel, and only one wrap (in light cloth) that had the look of the present season. A lady from the "States” asaed for fur-lined cloaks and was shown wide, badly cut, shop worn sacks, with loose, shapeless sleeves, garments that have not been seen in New York for two years at least. She demanded something more modern and was told these were what they had at her price (g5 r l—23u francs); and fora long doiman of good quality and good shape—silk, fur-lined, with collar and baud of fur trimming—the price was 650 francs—sl3o. There are little articles to he picked up here and there, the average of which is lower than we find it in America; but certainly the era of low prices in Paris has departed for any object that has real or permanent value. AUTUMN FABRICS. Not only the preparation, but the actual dis play of autumn fabrics begins earlier in Paris and London than in New York. Already the straw bonnets, white and dark, begin to show autumn touches—broad scarf life folds of vel vet and shaded ostrich feathers, or feathers mixed in many dark and bright colors instead of the profuse wreaths and mountains of flowers. Autumn materials are very much the same as last year; heather and cassimere mixtures, barred occasionally with broken lines or small check. The colorings are fine and dark, such as are seen in gentlemen’s cloths, of whieli ladies’ materials are now a close copy. They are made up with deeply kilted skirt and long coat with bronze, brown, or olive velvet collar aud cuffs. The buttons of the best of these costumes are bronze, with raised figures, and are in fact bronze plarquesin miniature. They suit the bronze and olive shades in the cloth ad mirably, and give distinction to the ensemble. Very dark bright tartans are much used in conjunction with plain heather mixtures, and also with plain black velvet The tartan is simply used for the kilting; the upper part of the dress is plain, and, if it is plain wool, plain velvet to match is used for collar and cuffs of the coat, which is cut deep, and hag a seam across the line of the waist, and lappel folds at the back. Some of the new dress fabrics exhibited are magnificent. The latest have satin ground en tirely covered with mixed Japanese floral de signs in uncut velvet shaded from light to dark in colors. One was very striking in green and coral red; another in shades of cream, deepening into pale gold and pale turquoise to old blue. These goods are twenty to twenty five francs the metre, and the hand embroi dered satins are still higher. These rich stuffs are thick, plain satins, covered in hand em broidery, executed in fine dark iri descent beads, in plain jet or bronze mixtures, or in gold thread with silk. Of course they will be rarely used for an entire dress, though one could imagine their radiant effect under a brilliant light, but they will probably be in great demand for trimming and drapery, for wadded wraps and dressy cloaks. A still more decided novelty in trimming fabrics is in uncut velvet in lace patterns upon dark satin. This Is very rich, and is used to trim fine woolen walking dresses as well as re ception toilettes, but it embodies a false idea, is unsuited to the purpose to which it is put, and is every way objectionable. In the first place it makes a pretence of lace without being lace, which Is bad; in the second place, as it is intended to simulate rich lace upon satin, it is not adapted to walking dresses; in the third place, the real lace upon satin would be but little more expensive and much more suitable and permanent for handsome toilettes. The rage for plush is expected to continue, for it is being manufactured in large quanti ties, and will doubtless take the place of fur as trimming, and. in the fine, dark, seal-brown shades of seal skin for cloaks, the genuine seal having gone up to such high figures. In fact, all real and high style furs have enhanced in price in conseg uenoe of the scarcity produced by the Increasing demands of fashion. BTYLKB AND SPECIALTIES. The outgoing styles have but little interest now, still it may bs worth while to chronicle a few of them. Among the best designs are shirred and kilted skirts of mouse or fawn colored satin, under a draped princess polo naise of handsome dark jet bright Japanese foulard satin. To these is frequently added a deep Charles I. collar of small, darkly irides cent beads, each one cut, so that the effect is exceedingly beautiful. Another good style of summer costume con sists of a combination of plain, with small check Louisiaes, in good mixtures of gold, with wire and serge. The fine check is used for broad scarf like drapery, and for the handkerchief,or shirred trimming of the basque, which may be trimmed with lace (that is. the handkerchief or trimming, not the basque). only the basques of cotton dresses are trimmed upon the lower edge. The cotton costume In London was esthetic, with belted waist and puffed sleeves. Here it is conventional, with basque, kilted front and draped back. There are th ee kiltings in front, headed with Madeira embroidery, and this is used also as a : rimming for the basque and to form cuffs. Indoor gowns are short and cut sacque shaped, reaching to the feet, but hardly touch ing the ground. They have a collar which is trimmed with a pleated ruffle, edged with lace, aud this extends down ihe front and sometimes round the bottom. They are made in pink and blue and red ground prints in very small patterns in pongee silk, in foulard, and in shades of silk surah, which is delightful summer wear. The outdoor additions to costumes are pre cisely the same as with us—small silk and satin mantles shirred and lace and ribbon trimmed. Netted and jetted capes, and fancy maDtelets barred upon thin material. There are many small chenille and crepe de chine wraps, which may be used for changes at hotels and watering places, but are hardly suitable for the street, and have no value ex cept as au addition to the graceful shoulder adornments, so many of which are considered necessary to the completion of a fashionable wardrobe, DAINTY BELONGINGS. There is no city in the world that has grown to such refinements io personal belongings and in the arts of the toilet as Paris, and the actual status of a lady or gentleman, and particularly of a lady, is much more clearly exhibited by her personal habits and surroundings than by ESTABLISHED 1850. her clothes. There is none of the bareness even in hotels abread that we are so apt to find at home, and the care which in hotels gives sofa and mantel and toilet drapery, a lavatory furnished with elegance, a draperied bed. and mirrors in abundance. In private life supple ments all these with dozens of little niceties all tending toward delicacy and an exquisite refinement in the care of the person. There are dainty instruments fine as jewels, for the care of the nails, the eyebrows, the teeth, the skin, and even the ears. Brushes for all uses include a dozen, ivory mounted and inclosed in satin-wood satin lined cases Perfumed waters are distributed from crvstal flasks with silver tops, that can be graded for removal so as to give it in quan tity or drop by drop. Softening creams and velvety powders are concealed in priceless lit tle jars of Indian or old blue China, and gloves and mouchoirs are kept in cases that commu nicate to them an indescribable odor, faint yet most delightful. The under clothing used in the day time, in stead of being folded as formerly, a custom con sidered the very pink of neatness and order, is now hung upon the pegs of a tall revolving stand which occupies a very small space in the dressing room, and over this is thrown a slight cover of linen, which'may be ornamented with Oerman embroidery or etching. Under a cot ton dress a lady will not unfrequently wear silk underclothing, the under wear being much finer and more daintily trimmed than the out side. Combs of every description, when not of ivory, are of tortoise shell—and the shells are the more desirable. When a lady goes to her bath, over her night dress of batiste she puts a dressing gown of pale pink or blue flan nel.and the mule slippers into which she thrusts her white feet are satin lined to match. Toilet covers and draperies are trimmed with quantities of exquisite lace, and chains, baskets, hanging baskets, and bird cages with ribbons and flowers. How it is all kept so pretty and fresh looking is a mystery, but the modern French woman gives her mind to the care of her body, or at least has succeeded in developing abundant resources for the accom plishment of her object. CHARACTERISTIC ORNAMENTS. Ornaments have certainly passed beyond the massive metal or barbarously gorgeous era. A characteristic or highly hand wrought necklace pin. ring, clasp or comb is more distinguished than a mass of big diamonds, although the latter should represent a fortune. Doubtless these last would attract attention to the wear er, but they would also label her as belonging to the new and vulgar rich who resorted to this method of displaying her wealth. The desideratum with refined women is the possession of such characteristic ornaments as are specialties of different localities aud not easily obtained elsewhere. The coral of Naples, the silver of Genoa, the cut stones and crystals of Germany, the mosaics of Rome, the enamels of Florence, the carved work and delicate watch mechanism of Switzerland, and the exquisite manipulation of fine gems, as seen in Paris. One rare orna ment lasts forever, and is always a badge of hereditary nobility. It proves the possession of taste and means and experience of travel in the generation that owned it, and ap preciation and intelligence in the generation which preserves it. One good and real thing enriched by human skill is worth a whole world of such stuff as is found in most of the shops of the Palais Royal, which has been fitly styled the apotheosis of rubbish. “high” novelties. Everything in Paris is haute nouveaute, al though in reality there is no such thing as nov elty, and the same old design or fabric reap pear, at reeular intervals with the exactitude of certain diseases—small-pox or scarlet fever. At a fashionable dress-maker’s the other day a lady asked to have shapes of basques submit ted to her that she might choose from them. One was brought. “This is the model of one I had made in Paris four years ago.” she ex claimed,rather contemptuously. “Ah! Madame, it was the fault of your good taste that you selected one that has had such a long life,” re plied the clever Parisian. But though the Parisian designers and mo dis'es are stimulated by the constant demands from America, particularly for "novelties,” they know too well the limitations of the dress makers’ and milliners’ art to suppose they can satisfy them upon any legitimate Oasis. Originality is Jgenius, and is a flower of rare growth. It cannot be forced to bloom every three months. The only way, therelore, is to borrow their resources from tricks, from exaggerations, from extravagances; and this they nave done until fashion, in its succession of grotesque and idiotic absurdities, has become a sort of Punch aud Judy show, which attracts the crowd but has no interest for per sons of sense and intelligenoe.These changes are generally meaningless, and simply involve a fresh waste of time and money. An original idea, as before remarked, is rare, and, even if it is absurd, has some interest, and is therefore entitled to a certain amount of consideration. This is the meric of the “esthetic” idea. It is "too exquisitely absurd, you know,” but it is different, and therefore strikes that large class who want to be continually excited and struck by novelty, and who find that the cur rent slang in regard to it not only stands for brains, but sometimes actually passes for them. The difficulty about a good and fitting style of dress, is that it is not striking, and it has elements of permanence. These qualities do not meet the wants of the throngs of raree show admirers, who must have the cap and bells in some form or other—sometimes as a hoop, sometimes as a Grecian bend, sometimes as a fiat bonnet tilted low over the nose, sometimes as a hat with brim turned high in the air. At one time every woman follower is set wild with desire for an India shawl that must cost anywhere from five to fifteen hundred dollars. Tne next year the most “chic” thing is to cut up these shawls and make an ugly garment of them, with enor mous sleeves only suitable fora giantess, called the dolman. A TALK WITH THE GREAT WORTH. Mr. Worth has returned from Wildbad, and in a long'chat with him yesterday he showed clearly enough the estimate he puts upon passing fashions. The very straight tie-backs which are this season the rage in London, di viding the honors with the shirred bolster cases styled “esthetic,” Mr. Worth characterizes as the “Praise-God-Barebones” style of dress, and the bandanna handkerchief as “Folly in red and yellow.” He remarked very sensibly that there was no use in attempting uniformity in modes; that the true idea of dress was for each one to adapt her clothing to her means and her individuali ty ; that this was what the best class of women were working towards nosv, so that their dress became at once more original and more useful and permanent. The majority, he remarked, while making constant demand for variety and change, really fell back, like a flock of sheep, upon the same thing, and .wore it irrespective or its adaptability to circumstances or person ality. Dress, however, he rightly said, couid never become a matter of fixed law any more than furniture or any other human belonging. Taste Is a matter of growth, development, education and opportunity, and dress must be as various as the people who wear it. There will always be some who will have the rich and the elaborate, alwajs some who will find what they admire in the fussy and the com monplace, and others who, with refined in stincts and cultivated tastes, are able to select for themselves out of the abundant resources what is best suited to their wants and means. Mr. Worth thought the rage for novelty sometimes led to the use of the most unsuit able materials—as plush, for example, which he characterized as outrageously unfit for dresses and especially for bonnets. Yet plush he remarked, is being manufactured In im mensely large quantities for autumn trade and its use more or less will be forced upon leading houses by their customers. He was very guarded respecting the incoming autumn styles, saying that it wag too early to predict with any certainty what would and what would not be the leading ideas; that he had hardly yet begun to think about the matter, but be lieved that velvet would have a great vogue, aud that many ladies would return to plain rich fabrics and single colors. AN INSIDE VIEW. A glimpse was afforded me as a stranger and an American of some costumes and bonnets designed for the autumn, which I was assured represented what would be high fashion. One of the robes was of velvet with a beaded satin front and Diana of Poitiers collar of bead work. The sleeves were slightly fonce and cuffs of the beaded embroidery were turned upward, close lace ruffles finishing them below. The front of the boddice was square, the skirt plain and only demi-trained, the edge finished with thick ruching of satin under velvet. A walking dress of dark leaf green wool with an indistinct mixture of black and gold was made as a short princesse dress with a deep kilting and a loDg coat with velvet collar to match. The coat was tailor finished, with In side and upper left hand pocket. A Scotch walking dress wag made with more drapery, and it is positively asserted, esthetics to the contrary notwithstanding, that bustles will be restored and hoops follow. It is possi ble. There are no follies that are not possible; but as hoops and bustles always are announced as having been revived every year, In the face of absolute extinction for the time being, the news must not be regarded as certain. One of the great features of the new cos tuinßß consists of the immensely large bows at the back. A bow of extraordinary size has been the only trimming of many of the sum mer straw bonnets, andthis enlarged to double these dimensions is now placed at the back of the Moyen-age waist, which is used for many short dresses instead of a basque. A dress of seal brown, for example, with very fine lines of old gold, is made with a deep kilting headed with five scarf folds of seal brown satin mar veilleaux, finished with a bow of doubled satin, which covers the back below the line of the waist. A straight cape of the brown wool, with satin collar, finishes the dress. ■Some new velvet felt bonnets are pure pokes, with high, narrow crowns and narrow but deep and projecting brim. They are trim med with velvet doubled and used as strings bunches of shaded feathers, or two shades of small velvet flowers-nasturtium, for example and deep red. Ugliness reigns supreme in bonnets, and. it is thought, will take on an even more pronounced type during the coming season, The dress coat will not be displaced during the coming season. That is certain. The most fashionable basques are cut in the coat shape, and some elegant coats have been made recently of rich gold striped stuffs, the gold lines real and very fine, to wear over long velvet skirts of the same shade as the stuff, which is a sort of thick raw silk. Plain velvet coats will, it is thought, be fashionable this winter, and also plain velvet suits, but plain velvet coats for dress in conjunction with satin or ruffled silk shirt. A novelty in hair ornaments oonsists of jet mounted as flowers and worn instead of a comb. Another quite new thing in hair orna mentation consists of flowers exquisitely made In silver thread, and so soft that they can be crushed in the hand, yet so elastic that they are not in the least spoiled by the operation. Among a group of dresses worn at Fontain bleau the other day was a red Japanese cos tume of cambric with basques draped back and three kilted flounces in front edged with Belgian lace. Coarse white straw bonnet trimmed with large red bow and bunch of Marguerites. Another dress was of cream colored silk muslin, embroidered with blue forget me nots in natural color over surah silk. Tne arrange ment of the dress was very much the same; that is there were three flounces (embroidered) in front, and a a rated back, but the boddice was round and belted In with velvet, and the white Neapolitan hat had a brim hiilf turned up and faced with blue velvet and a magnifi cent cream colored ostrich plume. Avery handsome dress was of block satin, covered with flounces of black Spanish lace. The boddice was covered with a knotted fichu of lace and jet. The hat was a Rombrandt, with profuse and effective trimming of Span ish lace and feathers. The fourth dress was “too too,” to quote the "es’hetes ” It was all shirring. It was a white linen cambric trimmed with Genoa lace. The sleeves were shirred from the top downwards; the tablier was a mass of shirring, and an im mense pink bow of soft silk ornamented the back of the skirt. The hat was a shirred mus lin, lined with pink and trimmed with daisies. Jenny June. TIMELY PRECAUTIONS. Tbe Military Guard at the Jail Strengthened Gatling Guns In Readlnea*. A Washington special to the Balti more Sun, dated Sunday evening, says: ‘‘The four companies of artillery, two from Fortress Monroe and two from Fort McHenry, which arrived here last night, are quartered at the arsenal, though from them the guard at the jail has been strengthened. There is a very general impression that there was no necessity for this increase of the military guard, and that Guiteau never stood in any danger of swift justice, the guard there having been already sufficiently strong to protect him. There have been no signs of any organized movement to take him out of jail. All the talk of that kind has been in other cities. General Crocker, the warden of the jail, says he never had any fear of au attack on the jail, and that with his own force of guards he could defend the jail against all comers He docs not object to the military guard, but says in his opinion there is not now, has not been or will not be any necessity for it. “Yesterday afternoon General Sher man, with General R. B. Ayres, Com manding Washington Barracks, (arse nal), General Mitchell and other military men, visited the jail (where Guiteau is confined), with a view of selecting the most eligible positions for posting pick ets and troops to resist any attack which may be made by a mob. The result was the establishment of several posts. There are on duty in ami about the jail eighty soldiers from the arsenal. General Ayres this morning received a rein forcement of four companies from Fort ress Monroe, which, with Light Battery A and Batteries B, C, D and H, second artillery, are immediately under his or ders. Beside these the marines at the headquarters of the corps, and at the navy yard are held iu readiness, and in case of a riot within half an hour 1,200 men can be massed at the jail, not counting the Light Infantry, National Itifles and Union Veteran Corps, of the District militia. Should there be a ne cessity to protect the jail, in place of field pieces the Light Battery will use four Gatling guns, each equal in firing to about a regiment of men.” A Long Island Mystery.—Joseph Ritchie, while out gunning Saturday evening, near Freeport, Long Island, found the remains of a young woman in a swamp. The body was severed at the waist, and the separated portions lay a few feet apart. Neither portion had on any article of clothing, hut each was wrapped in copies of the New York Ilerali of 18th inst. The remains were considerably decomposed. An inquest was to have been held bunday, at which it was hoped some facts would be ascer tained in relation to the horrible mys tery. *AKIH c POWDER Absolutely Pure.
