[Correspondence of N. y. Journal of Commerce ]
Paris. January. 1858.
For th" last week Pans has been in a whirl
gayety and dissipation. The weather has
been so mild that every one walks or drives
abroad The Roulcvards and othcrlnrge streets
are hne l with the small wooden stalls contain
ing every variety of toy and household articles
rrora one sou upwards. The large establish
ments of the capital, of millinery, fancy goods.
Bilk and velvet materials, and of papeterie. and
of all articles of vertu. are as brilliant as I have
ever seen them at this season, and are crowded
with eager purchasers. I do not remember to
.T? knoirn the New \ear feto to pass over
with greater eclate. The hon bon shops, with
the hundred varieties of baskets and boxes
decorated with fine paintings and beautiful ar
tificial flowers are alone worth the visit of a
stranger to Paris. The exhibition of the ma
terials for the Court dresses and trains, of silks
and velvets worked and embroidered with gold
and silver, is surpassingly gorgeous.
At the reception at the Tuileries on the 2d of
.1 anuary, the ladies were obliged to appear in
the Manteau de Cour or Train, and the gentle
men in official or military costume. The Court
entertainments and ministerial fetes will com
menca this week, and all Paris is looking for
ward to a gay and brilliant carnival. The
masked balls have inaugurated the season with
the accustomed throng of dancers -and spec ta
tors. The establishment, which all strangers
in Pans, should visit, is that of the celebrated
costumier of the Theatres, and for the masked
and fancy balls. There may be hired for the
night, the costume required by the actor or ac
tress. whatever may be the charactcr in which
h- or she is to appear. Historical and national
costumes of all ages and all countries are dis
played to tempt the frequenter of the public or
pri\ ate fancy balls. The decorations and ar
rangements of this establishment are unique
and display not only good taste but great re
search and historical and antiquarian knowl
edge.
Our mantua-makers are especially occupied
with perfecting full dress costume. The hand
tome salons of Madame Fauvet, i Iluedu Men
u's. are tilled with ladies ordering elegant toi
lettes. at once rich an?i simple, alway* flistin*
Kuies. Young ladies find there, their modest
frousseaux. and brides their beautiful cor
eilles The evening toilettes consist generally
tor those who dance, of light colored silks or
satins, covered with two or three skirts or floun
ces of tulle, crape, lace or blonde. Robes of
tulle have often as many as six skirts or floun
ces; sometimes these skirts are merely hemmed,
and over the heins are placed small satin rolls
or else, a wide satin ribbon is passed through
the hem. Flounces are also sometimes borderd
with plain tulle ruches edged with a narrow
blonde When cut in Vandykes, the flounces
are bordered with ruches of doubled and very
lull No. .? and No. t ribbons. Some skirt.** are
puffed all over ; double skirts a re also bordered
with narrow gold or silver braid, surmounted
by fancy foliage of different colors. Foryoun<
ladies there are becoming robes of Chambery
gauza. Sjuic are quite plain, others have a sat
in stripe or small check pattern; these are made
either with flounces or a double skirt.
Ball dresses aro now worn without any deeves
on the shoulders ihere is only a small puffing'
to which flowers or bows of ribbon with Ions
ends are fastened Rurthes with long ends are
iu vogue, and also a kind of narrow lapel
coming down in a point be*rc and rounding
over the shoulders behind ; it is generally cover
cd with blonde or ribbon ruches; or with a cor
don of small flowers put on in the form of a
heart in front. There are four new tint.-for the
colors of rol*s which have appeared this month,
- .!.h? U,,n* th* Alpine pansy, jrar
den gilliflower-. and the Alpine enrraut. The
?Alpine pansy dress is a peculiar shade of violet,
with a net-work of black chenille, at least Hi
inches deep at the bottom of the skirt ; above
the chenille is placed a small ruche of ribbon
Ihe high and plain body is terminated with
slashed lappet*, and it is trimmed with a berthe
chenille and jet bordered by a fringe in the

BL.IAK FORMS. OR HELPS TO T1IE I S.
INITIATED.
The New York Examiner, a religious paper,
^Baptist) burlesques the practice of advertis
ing sermons. Ac. by giving the following forms
for the use of clergvinen who have not yet
learned this great metropolitan improvement.
m n,L -Ik ' havinS ,aborcd seven
months with great acceptance as pastor of the
church in , lost Sabbath preached his fare
well discourse. There was scarcely a dry eve
in the house, so deeply wore all effected by the
rupture of ties which had been so'long acquir
ing strength. After the sermon commendatory
resolutions were paused and ordered to be pub
lished in three papers. A little girl then
stepped forward, and in behalf of tho pew
holders, with a neat address, presented to the
retiring pastor a silver tooth-pick, accompanied
by tbo names of tlie donors, and the amount
each contributed, to " show himself friendly,"
and tho recipient, with evident emotion, re
sponded in an eloquent manner. It was an
occasion not soon to be forgotten.
The Rev. Dr. , having recently returned
from his European tour, will next Sabbath even
ing, in his own pulpit, give an account of the
nagged Schools in London, and, as an illustra
tion, will exhibit two or three ragged boys
similar to those which he saw in the school near
the famous ? Coal Hole." Tickets to the lec
ture, five cents, for the benefit of the Sabbath
School.
The Rev. will next Lord's day
evening entertain the public with a graphic
sketch of his late excursion in "John Brown's
Track, northern New York. By the advice
ot bis physician, he accompanied a hunting
party into the depths of that wonderful forest
and his narrative will doubtless be very inter
esting. Ho will exhibit the skin of a wolf
which he shot, and the club with which he
killed an unknown animal. Com? early if you
want a good seat.
The Rev. Dr. will preach in his own
place to morrow morning, and administer the
ordinance of baptism to ? persons, all recent
converts, the oldest of whom is ? years, and
the youngest -. The choir, under the direc
tion of that distinguished vocalist. Mr
will sing two select pieces, and will give a fun
t"*,* on the organ. The public are invited.
?11 T ' 'ate a missionary in Asia
will preach to-morrow evening in the church
After a gnspcl sermon, ho will put on the cos
tume of the tribe among whom he has labored,
and sing one of their national sones. Ticket#
ten cents. for his Mission.
1 Tih ,Anniv?rs.a.ry of the Sabbath School will
?e held next >abbath evening. Several weeks
nave been devoted to preparation and a rich
entertainment is expected. The services will
be pr yers, reading the Scriptures, the Secre
tary s report, singing, addresses, dialogues tu
costume, and a mock wedding. Miss will
preside at the piano. A collection will be taken
up to pay the expenses of the decorations.
1 he Ladies Mitten Society will hold a ba
zaar next week, commencing on Monday, in
? Hall, the avails to be appropriated to the
purchase of mittens for p??or children Many
of our first ladies are engaged in tho self-deny
ing enterprise. A large variety of curious ar
ticles will be for sale, and every one who pur
chases a dollar * worth will be entitled to an
ice cream. There will be an address by some
clergyman every evening except Friday, when
there will be exhibited an old folk's party a
genuine take-off of the olden time. Remember
the poor bare-handed children. A". Y. Kx

A I ikmush Oi'trage.?We learn that an
outrage of a most fiendish charaoter, almost too
horrible and revolting to be chronicled, occur
red in Florence. Ky., about twenty miles from
Covington, on Thursday last. In the after
noon ol that day, a little girl about six years
of age, the daughter Jos. Cryant, Esq., of Flor
ence was mwing from the house, and notwith
standing diligent search was made, could no
where I?e found. The neighborhood was aroused,
and the wells and streams examined, but search
fruitless, until a negro bov. the property of
Allies Marcus, Esq., suggested that she might
have fallen into a well that was not used, at
some distance from the house. Thither the par
ty proceeded, and were horrified to find the
brains and blood of the little girl scattered
about the top of the well!
Sea it h was immediately made in the water,
when the body was brought to the surface, and a
most painful s[*>ctaclc presented. The child
had been violated, her head crushed in a most
inhuman manner, and the -kull nearly emptied
oi the brains, which were found scattcrel about
the well ' Those who were preset say that
the signt presented wa* of the most horrible
description.
From circumstance* which transpired during
the icarch, suspicion fastened upon the negro
boy. who suggested making an examination of
the well where the body was found, and on ac
cusing him of the crime, he reluctantly con
leased that he hail first violated the person of
the little girl, beat her brains out, and then
thrown the body into the well to cover up the
crime W hen the fact became known in the
neighborhood, the people assembled in large
numbers, and proposed to hang the negro on the
spot, and the excitement was so groat that it
wfts with difficulty he could be kept out of the
hands of the infuriated crowd, who were deter
mined to wreak summary vengeance upon the
murderer. Cooler counsels prevailed, however,
and the more moderate of the populace finally
succeeded in getting possession of the negro,
and handing him over to tho civil authorities.
He was then conveyed to the jail by a strong
guard, and securely confined and ironed.?Cm.

Feat or Horsemanship?The Harrisburg
correspondent of The Philadelphia Press, wri
ting on the 21st instant, says :
A teat was performed here last evening
'hat rivals some of the famed horsemanship of
1 ol. Fremont and hits California mu8l%ntfs.
Col Forney, editor of The Press, was adver
tised to deliver a lecture in Lancaster on Wed
nesday evening, and tor that purpose left hero
at 12 o clock noon, but, on arriving at his des
tination, found that he had left his manuscript
of the discourse in his room at the Jones House
He immediately telegraphed that, if possible,
it rfiioulti be pent him. either by chartering a
locomotive or hy a horse express. To get the
locomotive it was founl impossible, when bia
friend, Bartram A. Schaffer, Senator from Lan
caster, started in a buggy at precisely 4 p. m.
At lit minutes of i o clock, they telegraphed
back his arrival at Lancaster?having made
the distance of miles in 2 hours and oO min
utes! This, I think, cannot be beaten, when
it is considered that the roads are now in a bad
condition, and most of the distance was made
after nightfall. Col. Forney delivered his lec
ture to an overflowing house."
Thk Makkikd Man ?How is it that girls can
always tell a married man from a single one '
The tact is indisputable. The philosophy of it
is beyond our ken. lilaokwood says that "the
t.wt k| matrimony or bachelors'/ ip is written so
legibly in a man sappearance, that no ingenui
ty cani conceal it. Everywhere there is some
inexplicable instinct that tells us whether
an individual (whose name, fortune and cir
cumstance are totally unknowm be he. or bo he
not, a married man. Whether it is certain sub
