W. F. HAIFLEIGH, ShériL Paroisse Ste. Marie, le 30 Sept. 1553. \n\n Pasuia sFashfei -Fall and Winter- Amaaig the latdsrfabbios of the sea son; (writes acorrespondent of a north ern paper) I h4ig seen some pretty no-1 destined foi the ladies of the 9iet of yellow crape, cov hds oftiafetcut in square:: these bands are terbiinated by a little o rith which runs along the edges, t arranged in the shape of a Von -.4A sep of the crown ; the ornament on -em si4 consists of a bow of yellow ribbon, and on the other of a bouquet of field flowers; these trimmings are ,plaoed very near-The edge of the front; tbh isiWe has a profusion of field flow eas and blonde. Saenther bonnet has a lhee straw front with a soft crown of pink taffeta, orna ~6tIned with several cross pieces of blckel, velet ribbon embroidered with straw:these cross pieces form at the sides bows mixed with pink silk rib bees; the inside is composed of rose buds with velvet bows. Tulle bonnets ate very pretty and becoming, when trimmed with two rows of vandyke edged blonde on the front; the crown is decorated with three similar rows: the vandykes of the first row point to w~rde the front of the bonnet, whilst the two others fall back towards the qurtain, which is also covered with a row of blonde. For ornament there is on each side a branch of red roses, flow ers-and foliage of crape, placed, as ustal, very near the edge of the front; Sthe.oside trimming is blonde and rose --eds,:with cherry bows. For very young ladies the tulle bon nets have the fronts covered with tulle roehes; on the crown a mass of field jeowers, forming a kind of chaperon. Head-dresses for country fetes, con sisting of fruits and flowers, and head 'dresses of feathers, are very fashiona 'ble, but they most be only the tips of -'feathers, not whole ones. All bonnets, whether for travelling, undress or full dress, are exceedingly small, and worn far back on the head, leaving the face entirely exposed. I have seen a number of silk dresses, in which pieces are cut out and the square is filled up by embroidery with a tulle ground; also, silks of a very small square pattern. with satin bands both ways of the stuff thus forming large squares. And full dress robes of light silks, with flounces terminated by a broad band of white silk muslin, with a wreath worked on it to imitate blonde; this band is headed by two bayadere stripes. The jacconets have ronning patterns, a disposition; the ba reges with Paempadoor patterns or flounces with satin bayaderes. White bodies are made in great va riety, and, in the choice, the age of the wearer should be taken into considera tion. Some are made of plain muslin, festooned at the edles, others of sprig ged muslin, of quilting and of white reps--in light tissues they are gathered. in thiek ones they are plain. Lappets areindispensable with plain bodies: 1~ft gathe+d corsages, a silk waistband . rua low down is the most fashionable. Silk dresses are trimmed with rib bons, of which there is an immense va rfIt , some forming rows of stars, con ne6ted by an almost imperceptible .ad; also rows of links, of Greek de signs, which are now in great vogue. NY*lvet ornaments should always be a sbade darker than the dress. Snhme times:dresses are trimmed with velvet of a different.color--for instance, stars ,of maroon velvet on grey, blue or bs wn. tAl& liaen articles are worn remarka bly rieb and elegant. Chemises are mate with a band round the neck, and very shrirt sleevts, festooned at the edges.' Those intended to form a part of full dress have a piece embroidered or formed of insertions. Some forms are of a fancy kind, and are composed of bouillonses enclosed between inser tions. arranged so as to form a front Fiece. Speed of Railways.-Dr. Lardner d ldpts the following ingenious illustra tint~o render familiar the extraordi wary velocity with which express trains The Great Western Express to Exe ter, England, travels at the rate of 45 miles an hour, including stoppages. or I' miles an hour, without including stoppages. To attain this rate, a speed ".4O0 miles an hour is adopted midway between some of the stations: and in certain experimental trips, 70 miles an 'liair have been reached. A speed of 70 miles an hour is about equivalent to SU yards per second, or 35 yards be tween two beats of a common clock. '. AlWbjects near the eye of a passen .'~h.ri' lisng at this rate, will pass by y ep'in the thirty-fifth part of a sec d; ad if thirty-five stakes were er a stWd at. the side of the road, a yard as sti de'thtey would not be distinguish ableene fcomp another; if painted red .jaay would appear collectively as a .aetinaeonsflh or red color. If two sesins with this speed passed each ;pt er,the relative velocity would be 1a rj per second; and if one of the were 70 yards long, it would - in saiaglesecond. Supposing the locomotive which draws such a 'no have driving wheels seven feet d diameter, these wheels will revolve Sse iimes to a second; the piston moves itog th cylinder ten times in a sec .and ;thealve moves and the steam sten times in a second; but as there arertwo pylindra which act alter sately, there are really twenty puffs Saps of Steam in a second.

"Well, put that and that together ! Just so Smith told me he couldn't afford it. I didn't dispute the point. It was too much trouble. I just smiled sweet Iv at him, as if I didn't know it was a humbug, but I very quietly went to my boudoir, and despatched a note to that jewel of a doctor-, that I should be taken violently ill about the time Smith came home to dinner, and shouldn't probably recover till after a trip to Saratoga or Niagara, or some of these quiet places. Well, he is as keen as' a briar; and when Smith came home and sent for him, he found me in a state of foreordained exhaustion, in the hands of my maid Libby. He felt my pulse, looked wise and oracular, and said, " she must have a change of air." Of course I objected, declared I never could be moved, was quite entirely run down, &c. Doctor said he wouldn't answer for the consequence, and tinal: ly, to oblige Mr. Smith, I give in! Un derstand! Nothing like a little diplo macy. Always use the check rein. my dear, if you want to start Jones off in any direction. Men are a little con trary, that's all. They'd be perfect treasures, every mother's son of them, if it was not for that."-Fanny Fern. Something Truthful.-The editor of the Hagerstown News, himself an old bachelur, says: Nothing can prevent an increase of bachelorism save an amendment in the code of educating women. When they learn common sense, instead of broken French, when they learn some useful employment, instead of beating the piano, when they learn to prefer honest industry to silly coxcombry, and when men find that woman is a help mate instead of a burthen, then we may expect to find fewer bachelors -not till then. Romantic.-There is now in the moun tain region of Western Virginia a young lady from Kentucky, described by the Parkersburg Gazette as young, pretty, educated, and sprightly, who is there to protect her rights to a large tract of land, which descended to her from her ancestors, to whom it was patented for revolutionary services. is now claimed by a land pirate, who formerly acted as her agent. To defend her rights "soli tary and alone" to the disputed terri tory, she went, made a clearing, built a log-cabin, and located a tenant. She always carries one of Colt's revolvers, and thus armed roams fearlessly over the mountains, following paths seldom trod save by the panther and bear. G " Semper Paratus" is the motto of an eating-house in New York. "Semper"parates ." was the variation of this same bit of Latin when used by an Irish scholar in reduced circom stances, as he sat down to a meal of watery potatoes. " Semper parates !" and then he added with a sigh, "if! they were melior they would be better~!" coCOMMUNIcATED. Mr. Editor-I wish to do an act of phi lanthropy, and at the same time of mutual in terest, in proposing to the inhabitants to pur chase of them the greater portion of such slaves as may be considered incurable, whether from chronic or acute diseases, if they have but 48 hours to live. They must be considered good subjects, and not to be more than 40 years old. [ believe the inhabitants will not be deterred by false scruples frdm profiting by this offer preferring rather to give their slaves a chance to regain the vigor of life, than to see them perish. L.

BRooKE HUNTER, civil engiaaer, of injuries received by a fall from the cars. A friend, through the columns of the Mem phis Whig, pays the following tribute to his memory : Ms. HUNlaT was a native of Virginia. He entered the service of the Memphis and Charles ton Railroad Company three years ago, during the preliminary surveys, and has been engaLed for the past two years on the Western Division of the road. A severe illness compelled him a few months ago to leave the scene of his duties, and he had just returned with restored health when his life was cut short by the accident of Wednesday. He lived but a few hours after the occurrence, and bore his great sufferings with calm fortilede. His manner df life in the feld of his labors had attached to him a large circle of friends, who sincerely lament that a yonng moa of such ex cellent abilities sheold have bete thus removed in the spring time of life, and to his manly vir. tues his old companions ,esire to render the heartfelt tribute of their testl&any.
