The flowers most in favor were roses, marguerites, lilacs, jessamine, and a variety of exotics. Weeping-willow plumes of all shades were much used. Among a collection of jewelry worn in 1831, I note chiefly a .log string of jet beads elaborately carved. Trr ~a the cen tre a large, exquisitly earved heart .is sus pended. The ear-drops are loteg, heavy pendants; which fact accounts for so many ragged ears among old fashionables. This set was worn at the time of the death of William IV., as an emblem of mourtl ing. MarA WLLmass. LATEST MODES FOR LADIES. Breakfast caps of Fanchon shape are made of new mulls with colored grouud, on which gay roses are printed. Copper shades with electric blue, straw berry red with rifle green, and brown with green, are the contrasts of color favored for autumn toilets. Very long-stemmed roses are the artifici al flowers most desirable for corsage bou Squets. A single rose costs $1, and from tive to ten are mounted in a group. At the millinery openings last week mluftfs were shown to match bonnets. ''hth soft mufftof velvet or plush trimmed with chenille fringe is prettiest with dark bon nets. Students' caps of velvet with a soft crown, a shirred band, a large bow itn front, and a bird's wing on the left side. are worn by young ladies, and are c.hosen to match the color ot the costume with which they are worn. New basques are single-breasted. When ornamental bust drapery is addedl it takes' the form of a long guimpe, or a short )iastron1, either square or oval, and made very full by gathers and folds. Crstellatad edges make a tasteful finish for basques and skirt-front breadths of cloth and cashmere dresses. Theyare made more effective by being welted with acord or fold of bias silk. Corded silks out number satins in im ported dresses. These are to make a long, slender overdress, with skirts of rich bro caded silks that have the figures of plush or velvet thrown up on a corded silk sur face. Silk squares for the neck are doubled and Silk squares for the neck are doubled atnd pointed low in front, and the open space filled in with two frills of lace. Sky-blue, crushed strawberry, and crevette squares are used, with. the edges scooped or trim med With lace or hemstitched. Velvet round hats with high, .qlare crowns and straight brims in sailor shape are becoming to youthful faces. They have two wide bands of velvet folded around the crown, and a dagger or arrow of gilt, bronze, or silver is thrust in the band. Carrick caps take away the stiff, plain look of cloth redingotes. They are made of i)lush, with a turned-down collar fastened by a silver brooch; or they may be of the cloth or the garment, with the collar cov ered with braiding and a border of braid ing on the edge. Arrow-points, arabesques, lotus-learves, obelisks, columns with various Egygtian and Turkish designs are woven in: the new tapestry woolens that are fashionable for overdresses. Japanese storks and fan pat terns are also imported, but have lessta- os vor, as they have been so long used, u A skirt of velvet embossed with bronze 0 kid, and a paletot of cloth with a border of e fur or feathers, is an elegant mod-el fori winter suits. Dark green and seal brown: ' are the most desirable colors for such a dress. The bonnet is a poke or felt with: a velvet band and a largebird for trimming. Black lace flounces that have been out of use almost for a generation are being darped on petticoats and trains of the state ly dresses worn at dinner parties. Chantil ly, Spanish, and guipure are the favorite black laces for flounces. Bonnets covered with a scarf of the lace to match are worn with these dresses at receptions. The very long trains of new evening dresses are a reaction on the short skirts and half-trains worn during the summer. Four or five ample straight breadths give sufficient fullness for the back; the front is en fourreau, or sheath-shaped, clinging to the figure, and represents a petticoat. as'it has no upper drapery, but is very elabor a tely trimmed across the lowest part, The waist is a cuirass basque, fitted very smoothly, with low, round neck, shoulder t straps, and a bertha drapery of lace. S LATEST MODES FOR GENTLEMME. e In silk hats the bell crown is worn in two hights, both lower than last season, e and with heavy rolling brim. For middle aged and old men the flat top or square cornered black Derby will be work. Der, h bys for young men are in three bights. The crowns are rounding and the brims t curled heavily as in silk hats. 0 In evening dress snits the swallow-tail i coat is made from black West of England e cloth or fine Wales worsteds. There is very e little change to note in their construction. , The collar and lapels are cut' narrower; f the roll not quite so extended; the skirt a I little shorter. Both shawl and notched ', collars are worn, and silk facings are de 11 cidedly the choice. The eats are cut to " button four buttons, with rolling collars. O The trousers are cutr qtite closeto the form rI of the leg. "Pumps" or low .,cut shoes, g made from patent leather, and colored silk stockings, are very generally worn for fr evening patties and weddings. 1 For demi-dress suits the double-breast a ed frock-coat, or,-"s it is sometimes .latled. a the PrisFee ,Albert, i9 used in makingimorn u- ing calls, promenading, and in some caseu b, at weddings, especiallY when the bride is ?e dressed in.traveling costume.

Prisoners in Their Veili b fiW'i trive to Get Pelsessiewt * Ktlil ve a.ed 'Pistole--P1Ots to Escape adet i to Kill-A s.a. in a Piece of Pie. There is a remarkable collection of od dities in the Tombs prison. For years the officials have made it a practice to retain implements and articles associated with the prisoners or used in attempts to es cape, and the collection has-grown so that it n1ow more than fills a number of large cabinets, which Warden Finn has caused to be ranged along the walls of a small room in the northeast corner of the build ing. It is not an att active -looking col lectionl, and is devoid of color, depending for its interest upon such associations as may cling about the articles in it. The prison attendants often turn the relics over as they chat about the incidents con nected with them. One of the oldest em ployeea was in the room when a reporter entered. lie was swinging a long iron hook idly on, his finger. The hook had a shaft about eight inches long, and was rough and scaly with rust. "Thib thing had a history," he said. "'t war in the wail of 78 some years ago, but had escaped notice because it was pret ty high up and was whitewashed. One morning about daylight one of the two pIrisoniers e ho were confined in the room waked up and missed his partner. He looked around in thit dusky cell and final ly saw his mate up by the window. He called to him to come down, but got no nswer. Then he looked closer and there was his mate hanging from this hook stone dead. He had got a small piece of cord from his bed, made a noose of it, climbed up the gas pipe until he could catch the other end of this hook, and then he let go his hold and strangled to death. We kept the hook to remember him by." "There is a story to this, too," he con tinued, taking down a common case knife which had been ground sharp on both edges. A man named John Carpenter was about to be taken into courtone morxn ing. The guard gave him notice and went out. W hen he returned five minutes la ter Carpenter was lying on the floor of his cell with this knife up to the hilt in his body. He got the knife from a woman who scrubbed his cell the day before, and sharpened the blade himself on the stone casement. I don't know whether you re member Carpenter or not. He was the man who entered St. Francis Xavier's Church one morning while early mass was being celebrated, crept stealthily up the aisle, sprang like a cat on a young woman, and stabbed her brutally. He mistook her, who was an honest laundress, for his wife, whom he charged with being un taithful to him. The laundress lived, and Carpenter might have got off with a light sentence. Lying on a shelf in a neighboring case 7 was a large tablespoon, the handle of I which had been ground down until it re- I sembled the blade of a dull chisel. It was I used by Porcello, an Italian murderer, to I openthe veinsti his arm. He was discov- 1 ered while bleeding from both wrists, and -vas sived by :a hospital surgeon's treat- 1 ent. :The: attendant took out a pair of haindutifs: and rattled them over his Afn gers. '"These were broken by a burglar," he -said, who was brought here from Ludlow street jail. He wasas powerful a man as I ever saw. He =was brought down in the van, and broke these it. the way. His idea was to make a dash for liberty when taken out of the van, t6ut he slipped up on his calculation because the van was driven into the prison before the door was open ed. It wok a heavy 'twist to snap these bracelets. "Them pepper-boxes," said the keeper, taking down a brace of formidable self cocking pistols, has a history. There was a man by the name of Stevens here for poisoning his wife. I and another keepet were watching him the night before the day he was to be hung. That very day, before we went on duty, a very obliging friend of the murderer went to the warden -Mr. Sutton, it was then-and said that he feared Stevens had a weapon in his pos session. A thorough search of the cell and the person of the prisoner was made, but we found nothing. The next morning a ;negro named Sengis gave some informa tion away that was valuable. The two mWen, with the assist uace of the obliging friend, had arranged a plot to escape from the prison. They occupied adjoining cells and passed the pistols through the small grating in the upper part of the cell. Their plan was to shoot me when Icame around at 1 o'clock a. I., get the keys -trot-my. belt, and fight. their way ; out. The prisoin chaplaiun htdi oticed a cab waiting in Leonard street the previous night. Everything was arranged, and i theire might have beeni trouble but for the timidity of the negro. Stevens was hung mind the "eg'ro-. enteneed- for life. '-This was ins 1860. He htad ta ourious history, that negro. He murdered his -father-in ilaw= in what: is- Balled feil e Ashway, in Thompson street, and eaped to New Or leaes, where he wzas put on the auctioni block.and sold' into slaver Hy. He-dreaded: the life of a- slave so mche that- he 'sent -North - and offered to give himself up for trial. ' It was while his case was before the Scourtssthat he ent.red into.,"the conspirac with Stevens. The negro subsequientl I became insane and 1las rimrmoved to Ward's iland where he Is now.. SThe collection embraoel a large number of knives that have been found on prison oi in et - to prevent x4 pehie APo 0 them is a fine horn-handle ra er taken from the bed of Dr. Orlando E. Bradford, who was convicted of malpractice. There is another razor with which Augustus Harty tried to kill himself. There are al t o-mqny crude stilletos made of files and pieces of iron ground down. Saws of all sizes and shapes are souvenirs of unsuc eesftlefforts to escape. Most of them iare old knives in which teeth have been cut, and one is a screw driver notched at intervals along its edge. A finelf tem pered steel saw was sent in to a prisoner,e is an ex concealed in a mince pie. There is an ex tensive collection of gallows literature, contribiuted by various murderera, in one of the cases. The efforts of these men have been usually in the direction of dog gerel, embellished by rough drawings of men on scaffolds and in coffins. There are a number of communications addressed to murderers, Cox and Balbo chiefly, which expresses vituperative abuse of the mur derers and curse them roundly for their crimes. These were sent from different parts of the country while the condemned men r ereihhprisc ned. MEN'S SILENT PARTNERS. Pictures Of Feminine Patience and Long Suffering. "You see hundreds of men who are suc cessful only because there is reason at home why they are successful," said I)r. Talmage yesterday morning. "If a man marrying a good honest soul he makes his fortune; if he marry a fool, the Lord help him. The wife may be a silent partner in the firm. There may be only masculine voices down on the Exchange, but there often comes from the home circle a poten tial and elevating influence. The woman of Shunmen, at whose house the prophet Elisha stopped, was a great woman and the superior to her husband. He, as far as I can understand was what we often hind in ouir day, a man of large fortune and only a modicum of brains, intensely quiet, sitting a long time in the same place withoutrmoving hand or foot; if you say 'yes' responding 'yes' if you say 'no' res ponding 'no;'inane; eyes half shut; mouth wide open; maintaining his place in society only because he has a large patrimony. His wife belonged to that class of people who need no name to distinguish them, no title of princess or queen. Long after the brilliant women of the court of ,ouis XV. and of the court of Spain, -and those i who sat on the throne of Russia, have been forgotten, some grandfather will put on his spectacles and holding the book the other side of the light, will read to his grandchildren the story of this great wom an of Shumen who was so kind, and cour teous, and Christian to the great prophet. "She was great in her hospitality. Jupiter was the surname of "The' Hos pitable,' and he was said to avenge the wrongs of strangers. Homer extoled hos pitality in his verse. The Arabs were punctilious about it. Of course I do not mean to defend that vagrant class who go about from place to their whole lifetime, under the auspices of some benevolent or philanthropic society, quartering them selves on some Christian family with great piles of trunks in the hall and carpet bags portentous of tarrying. -Miost beautiful is this grace of hospitali ty when shown in the house of God. I am thankful that Iam a pastor of a church where strangers are always welcome. But I have entered churchies where there was no hospitality. A stranger would stand in the vestibule for a while; then make a pilgrimage up the long aisle. No door wouid be opened to him. Flushed, excited, embarassed, he would start back agaj,- come to some half-tilled pew and enter it. The occupant wonld glare on him with a look that seemed to say.' Well, if I must I must. Away with such inde cent lack of hospitality from the house of God. "She was great in her kindness toward God's messenger. We have many books v in our day about the trials and hardships 1) of Christian ministers. I wish somebody (1 would write a book about the joys of the 1 Christian minister, the sympathy, and t kindness, and genial consideration that he I receives. I could tell you something that y you would think almost a romance. A young man graduated from New Bruns- E wick Theological Seminary, and called to a village church, had not the means to furnish a parsonage. After. three or four weeks' preaching the committee of the t officers of the church insisted on his tak ing a vacation of a few days. When he came back an: old elder handed him the key of the parsonage, and said: 'We have been cleaning it out; you had better go up and look at it.' And, lo! the house was fully fuir·shed, the table was set, the fuel was enady-in the stove, and all the young minister had to do was to start housekeep ing was to strike a match and light a fire. You tell me that was apocryphal? Oh! no! That was I. Again, she. was great in her behavior 'under-trouble . When her only child died she exclaimed, "It is well." Navigators tell ias about the great rivers of the Ama zon, theDanube, and the Mississippi that have been explored; but who can tell the depth or the length of the great river of sorrow? It is made up of tears of blood runnfiSg through all lands in all ages, I bear.ig the 'rgo of family woes and the t woes f communities and empires; foam r lng and writhing and boiling with the ag e onies of 6,000 years. AEtna and Vesuvius have been described, but who has ever sketched the vocano of suffering, retch s ing ~g fr.a its depths the lava and scoria, anid pouring them downl its sides to whelm r the nations?

GE. SHERMIAN'S RECOMMENDATIOS. . \rASHINGTON, NOV. 10.-Gen. Sherman t has submitted to the Secretary of War a' special report upon the subject of military n posts and forts, in which he says: "The $ time has now come for a radiial change in $ the whole system of piece-meal work in i quartering the troops of the United States. For a 100 years we have been sweeping across the continent with a skirmish line, v building a post here and another there, to be abandoned the next ..year for another line, and so on, and now we are across and have railroads every where, so that the whole probleni is changed. I advise the honorable Secretary of War to go to Con gress with a plan that will approximate It. permtanency instead of, as heretofore, meeting specific temporary wants by speci ail :ppropriation, often in the interest of private p.rties, for enlargement and irn provement of military posts." Gen. Shlier man recommends that the Secretary of 'War '\sk Congress for $1,000,000 per vyeir for five years, to be expended by him at the discretion of officers of the quarter master's department. By that process he thinks he will have abundance of good (jquarters for the whole army for the next 50 years. BOND CALL NO. 119.

There's Nothiniii Half so Sweet in Life as Love'ts Younig T)reamlm. A few minutes alter the non: bells rang on Tuesday a gray, horse, in a collar and harness and a stout ';vtgon, tdrove to the entrance of one of the Le. iston hotels. The buflhlo robe wv.as conit'ortably tucked aroiund a ruddy and downy Youtng nianl ind a plump young w.omn:in garnished with a bridal bonnet. lie helped her out of the s wagon, and escorted into the parlor with her a round green box. After he had - driven off and put up the team at tlhe stable of a rival hotel, he rejoined his mate 3 and expressed at desire for a confidential in C terview with the landlord. The latter pre r sented himself, and the young man said: d "Me and Harriet was married this morn ing. We have started on a little excur b sion. Before we left home, marm puts us 0 up a little dinner antl we brought a coffee pot along. Now, we'd like to heat the tr coffee and have a table to eat the dinner on-and perhaps a little sugar and milk." - The landlord led the innocent pair into the. dining room and seated them at a table with other guests, and they took the cover t- off their little green box with celerity. rs They had a glorious time, eating their 11 doughnuts, carraway-seed, cookies, squash e pie, and broad slices of cheese. If their to wedding tour had taken them to Niagara, . and they were dining at a fashionable >, hotel, with the prospects of paying $3.50 ., per plate, they could not have eaten or re laughed so heartily. The gray horse car . ried home two hearts that rapturously beat ,as one, and as thelandlord saw, them ride i off he felt almost as well in the radiance of t, their happines as if they had paid him 75 : centst;piece for 'iinner and 50 cents for to stabling.--L tiston Journal.
