A Chat with the Ladies, About What to Wear and Row to Wear It. Well, dear reader, the tune I last a approaching chat" more for chance of raiment. But a few "c, of the indefinite, and we Khali lie launched trout the uncertainty of srhat is coining to tlie delight ful reality of new sliade?, new fabrics and fashioning"- Can we wait? Hardly. And yet therein a de light in all this prognosticating", the councils and deliberation!', as to wliat will take and what will Iv refused ; for, after all, our ueeu is not abso lute. She lasluou, and, in a tiu-asure, dictates; lmt often her mandates are received with antago nism, even to revolt. In this ease, like other oueens, she fracefully retires them, and replace xliem with something less obnoxious. We feel (juite assured in saving the brighter, leeper colors w ill be more generally worn the coming season than heretofore, and 'when Mack is chosen for tlie street costumes, it will be so en livened with bright colors that the "Ameulcan nun" will be quite lost sight of. We are to hare many mixtures and shotted goodx. wltcre crave and gay will lie quaintly and prettily blended. As yet, no new goods liave been put upon the market. Probably another "chat" will give us a slight foretaste of the earliest changes, and then the "ball will be up," and we shall march on to the glorious autumnal eoionngs, v ..ps, flower.". feathers ana milieus. As vet. the 'sellni2 out" davs are in order. Tins has iieeu a dull season Quantities of made- up goods remain on the slielves. Many would do for next summer equally as well as lor fins, mil merchants must liave money, mi there is no cause for wonder tliat cambric dressing saeques, with tucked fronts, and trimmed with liambur", are niarued from $1.50 to 73 cents, or those in finer materials from SI to SI. .o. and still better trim ined. with smyrna inserting and edged, from $4 to 82.0". Now. we ladies know tliat these sacque are a! ways useful, always fashionable, and we predict tliat ere the season closes, at tliest- prices, there will not be a sacanc in the market. Tlie re are also cambric and point wrappers, and mortunc dresses, selling equally low. Tlie favvritc style of wrapper is the plain loose nabrielle. trimmed with decided strine. aud orna mented only with collar, pockets, and a band of tne trimming io simulate a cun. 1 Jiese are so easily laundned that ladies prefer them to all others for housework. Then there arc others with a basoue lack, and the skirt (fuller) is eatlier ed on a band under the basque, and the fronts are simulated basque by trimming. In suits, these basques and over-skirts ll as lowassuu. and are to i worn with anv skirt. These come in cambric plain, checked, or figure; aiso, tiuen inmmea witn an emnroiciereit edge. Linen suits-, tliat sold for Slit, can now lie pur eliased for SO, awl pretty figured jaconets, trim mcd with side-pleatiugs and lai-e, are selling for S3 aud 4. tnat two weeics ago commanded twn-e tlie sum. As for tall styles, we told yon some time ago tliat the Breton would still prevail. We liave te centlv seen foil importations that bear iw out in this prediction. Ladies who are inclined to the masculine- stile of dress will be pleased to know that vests ami swallow-tails, dickies, standing collars, neckties and huge will he en regie. That tall hats, with simple lands around them, can tie worn by those whose physiques will allow, we admit; but we must insist tnatamnnish hat over a very feminine face is not to be thought of. We are again to have jet a a fshionaUe trim ming; and that not only in black, but all colors, to match the dress. Please do not ask us why all tliese colors art called jet : for we think it quite paradoxical, aud :n only say tliat tlie colored has alt flic lirilliancy of the black jet, and in prettier, because newer. Striped ami checked hoes liave gone out for la dies and children. No more laarlier-poles or speci men colors. Hoes are now worn in solid hues, siik-elocked. Pink, blue, red and gray, clocked in white, gold, or red, are the prevailing tints, Chidren wear to match their saslies. The latest in sashes is, either loose bows and ends fastened where the waist and skirt joins, or. commencing at the side seams, they are fastened the same in the lock. If colored dresses, for traveling, thev are uua ally piped with color, and broad. Bat sash-bands, piped the same, are earned back, and either loop ed together, or listened with a long, slender gold slide. We are to have continued the profusion o( rili lion hows, or loops, and long ends with tight straps across on tall costumes. Netted chenille over-dresses and sleeveless polonaises will continue fashionable, and very ex pensive. Little girls, just now, are wearing wraps of little embroidered merino shawls crossed in front, and tied at the back in Scotch fashion. " New jet bracelets are deep, and in cuftshaps; open bars on the under side, aud solid jet on the top, with two simulated buttons. Tliese cost Si per pair, and vie with the iJauirhcff in popularity. Pink cameos, with cut figures in pink-white, are just the fancy for ladies ear-rings, set in solid gold and pretty designs. They cost 1G the jciir; with brooch to" match they areS30. And now, Au rcfir ! THAUr WBSCKXBS. The Caee of the Bichland aiM Continued to the Next Term of Court.

Written for tlio.imiiUy Moruiu Rizo. Ia It Inspiration or Hanger. "That man was inspired,'' said a ladv to me not a week ago. "He certainly was in spired else he never would have given ex. pression to such sentiments." She was sjieaking of Joaquin Miller. If it weie not so pitiable it would be laughable to listen to the various opinions of jieople with regard to actors, author, and tlie mixed class, Bohemian, ethereal aud hu man, who are supposed to inherit some wonderful talent, or have genius thrust upon them. Now, in Joaquin Miller's case it is not inspiration, therefore it is evidently a sort of moral starvation. When a man, in bis right mind, declares that he is as "lone as God," that he would ratlier "ride a fast horse" or talk to a "pretty woman" than do anything else though his taste may be unexceptionable on tlie latter point his manhood is at low ebb, and his morals are in a condition for improvement. When a great big, Jouble-fisted, loose-jointed, long haired, lackadasical fellow like Joaquin, forgets his manhood enough to declare that he would "make his heaven in a lady's lap," when he unblushing! admits that his highest ambition is to be the darling of the drawing room, or the owner of a fast horse: when, if be really had a talent God given he would be anxious to use it (as Dick ens and Thackeray did, for the good of their fellows,) he can be satisfied with a sort of nimby psmbv useless existence, the most natural thing in the world is for peo ple who give such matters a thought to con sider that there is something lacking, and as it cannot be bread, or even "quail on toast" in his case, the supposition is that it must be something infinitely worse, viz. moral hunger. Inspiration is a good word for thuee not used to tbe business to apply to people who win their bread with a pen. Hunger for bread, thirst for a cap of coffee, constant warfare with aa empty stomach any of these things are more po tent inspire! than all the moonlight nights, all the Sierra and Alpine scenery. all the lakes, rivers, bays, mountains, val leys, black eyes, Mae eyes, gray eyes, sad all other eyes that yoa can master. The Cary sisters of tea cried from tbe effects of hanger, in the open streets. No wonder Phvbe wrote: I hold tlmt CtiriMiati grace abotiaal In Charity, aal when We climb to 1 ravcn, 'tis oa tbe rounds Of lot e to mra. The Broate sisters suffered from cold aad hanger and it was bo other inspiration that prompted Charlotte's description ot Low wood. In abort, inspiration ia a myth.

They are asea aad women of in domitable slack aad iron resolve. If they have a litsAe aateral taste for the work ia d,se much the better for them.

Mr. Editor : Thinking that some of yoar aaateroas readers would like te hear something from this part of our roantry, I will give a few items on the mining opera tions of this ami adjoining district, the most notable of which are the new discov eries in tbe San Migael district. Three weeks ago J. E. La come, a mer chant of this place, tent a man out pros pecting, in three days he returned bringing some fine specimens which La come had as sayed, and found them to run oW ounces of silver to the ton. a Kicn wsvovmv. He al once put hands to work, and tbe ore, which is abundant, shows by mill runs the amount of 263 ounces per ton, from the surfsce dowi. The mine is called tbe Sul phurets. Lacome proposes to lease the mine during this winter, and make a trip to New Orleans to visit some relatives, and tospendapart of the winter in Sedalia. He is entirely a Western man, net er having been further East than Denver. A MISSOURIANS Ll'CK. A Mivoarian by tbe name of Henry Clark, was here only a few days, and secur ed an interest In the Sulphuret for $500, and returned hosae with a fortune. There are other mines owned by parties like myself not able to develop them, that are just as good. SMALL CAPITALISTS. This has been a very h&rd year oa men of small capital, for the reason thst tbe spring was at least one month and a half later than usual, and for this reason a great many capitalists who started to the San Jaaa coanlry tumed back, and there has been very little money in tbe country thu season, less than usual. The parties who are doing buniuew here are well pleased with what they have done. We have located a new mine on Cement creek, in the Animas or Silverton district, called tbe SITTING BULL LOUE, which I think when developed, will aaton ish tbe country. We have also one hal interest ia the St. Louis lode, near by, Can work both from tbe same camp. There is not a day bat some new mine is being opened up to the eyes ot men, and think this is bound to be the fenest mining district in Colorado, and perhaps ia the world. The Green Smelting Works have already -shipped more bullion than they ditl last year, bat from a much smaller quantity of tire, showing that as the mines go down, or are developed, I bey improve in richness, and that the only way to get pay out of them is to work them. THE SEDALIA LODE, on Cunningham Gulch, is looking fine for the amonnt of work that has been done oh it. There are two finely developed lodes crossing the Sedalia lode, which are hill o gray copper, the fimst silver producing metal known. All those who hare been fortHnate enough to get shares in the Seda lia lode will soon be able to appreciate tbe nerve ami disposition that it takes to climb the ragged mountains, to secure for you who are a little more fortunate financially that which yoH never woald have had or seen lor yourselves, A RICH SILVER MINE. I once in a while grt to see a Bazoo, the oaly paper in Central Missouri that is worth reading. W. P. J . A SUICIDE. The Sow of a Joplin Merchant Enda Hie Career in a House of 111 Fame. A yoangman named Kufiw Pyle, sod o a Joplin dry goods merchant, committed suicide in a house of prostitution in Galena Sunday night, by taking morphine.

The body was removed to a hotel next morning, where it was placed in a coffin and then taken to JOPLIN FOR BURIAL. If all reports are true young Pyle had sufficient ciase for wishing to end his life a life that had become almost unbear able.

Indeed he became so imlignant, that he proceeded to carve up Professor Jefferson into mince meat. But before he bad succeeded in ac complishing his purpose, tbe Professor RETREATED ON HIS RESERVE, which was the white wife before alluded to. That muscular female immediately con fronted the enemy and threw Mr-ChoteaH head over heels out of the window. Ia the mean time the Professor had seized upon his little pistol and commenced a rapid fire ia tbe rear of the paper seller, oae shot taking effect in his thigh aad another ia his aim, while the third penetrated the knee of a by-etander named Morrison, in flicting a wound that will probably cause AN AMPUTATION OK THE LEU. By this time a large crowd of citizens had gathered at the place, and by moral suasion intervened to stop the conflict. Both men were arrested ami conveyed to jail, while tbe disabled citisea was seat to a Convenient place to have his leg cut off. So ended the affray. A TXBBIBLS ATFAIB- Toons Girl Violated by Her Brother-in-law. The particulars of a terrible outrage reaches aa from tbe neighborhood of Inde penpence, in which it is stated that ayoaag girl thirteen years of age, was outraged Friday evening by Frank Shanks, who has just arrived from Texas. The girl i the daughter of Mr. Ellington, a respectable farmer, and the circumstances of the oHlrage are peculiarly attrocioas. It is said that no steps have been taken to ARREST THE FIFND on account of a desire on the part id the family to suppress any reports of tbe occur rence. But this can hardly be true. At any rtle a number of citiseas of Indepen dence have determined to bring the vidian to justice, and he is by this time probably in THE HANDS OF THE LAW As long as sach scoundrels are permitted to go at large mi woman is safe ia the country. It would he aa outrage apon humanity not to punish a man guilty of such a terrible crime. Edwin Shadick, Denisoa, Texa. Henry Cohen, Qaiacy, III. M. Harris, St. Louis, Mo. J. K Harris, " M " H. P.

You have doubtless no ticed a vu!gar criticism over the signature of u Victor," and published fn the Boon ville Adcertiner of 31st tilt., on the Camp Meeting held by the colored people at Ot terville. We were at tlie meeting, but un like some of our neighbors, we did not take a prominent position, bat from our stand point, saw nothing out of the order of good behavior, except by some of the white trash who, no doubt, went there for the sole pur pose of f ua-making. Although the meeting, preaching, and conduct of tbe colored peo ple far surpassed the most sanguine expec tations, is it not a shame to thus stigmatize a congregation called together for religious worship, merely oa account of a want of education? And especially those, some of whom are hardly dry from the holy ordi nance of baptism. 'Victor in his peregrin ation tailed lo notice the conduct ol some of the fairer class of society, else he might have made his sensation far more striking. He would have the public believe that- he w continually peregrinating the country guarding the public interest, when in fact we doubt if he ever gett outside of Otter rille. But we assure you that there is nothing in Otlerville, however intricate, that escapes his eternal vigilance. It seem that 'Victor wan Ihe only one who had Ihe good fortune to witness the downfall of the lady s nniler-tunics on Ihe street, a proot that his keen eve is ever on the alert. Ctvis.

Four Impossible or the Tribe of Denja min," U an anonymous publication by Lortngtt Bro's. Ronton. It is of the same kind of literature an Helen's Babies, and forms jnst one too many of thexesort of I hooks. As a general rule, infants ami their diablere are interesting only to tlieir papas and mammas, and possibly to a bachelor uncle or two. The general public U in clined to rate them an the worst kind of bores, ami the general public i very nearly correct in iti opinion. The successor of Helen's Babies are not an altogether inter esting company of juveniles, and we find these Four Impossible" a decidedly com monplace set. "Gerard's Marriage," by Andrea Tlieu riet, published by Appleton & Co., Xev York, i in the domain of sentimental -luance. In this line the French novelistt unsurpassed. In amatory philosophy, he is an adapt, and in the modes and methods of the soft infection, he i.i a skillet! anato mist; and these are the purhmt ot ins go nitis and the iavariable bend of hi argu ment. He dissects with an epigram, and describes with an epithet. Hence the French uovel is full of life, action, variety ami poetical refinement, and interest is never suffered to sleep. Gerard's Marriage bean all these qualities in tlieir lullest bloom. THJE STAGE. At Home and Abroad. Carlotta Patti is reported to he seriously ill with a complication of disorders.

Since that time he has endeavored to do daty as aa officer, and when iaterrogated as to bis authority, ha would state that be was sworn in aa deputy SberiaT.
