,u ern Churches. %
Jo the Editor of the Nut’ York Times •
1 most respectfully ask permission to offer
a few remarks on the subject of the reunion
of the seperate churches of the North and
South. These remarks spring from the dis
cussion of the topic in the columns of your
paper during the week. I cannot speak for
other churches. They have their own pens.
But, being on a visit to this metropolis, I
deem it due to my brethren of the Southern
Methodist Chureli to offer a tew remarks on
the present aspects of the question, as I un
The Methodist Episcopal Church was, by
common agreement, divided into two great
bodies, the Northern and the Southern, twen
ty-one rears ago. Since lhat period they
have respectively grown, in many respects,
quite unlike. So unlike, indeed, that, for
one, I deem the reunion an utter responsi
bility. The attempt, if forced upon the
Southern people, would result in their total
ditpersion into other churches, or new or
It should also be borne in mind that the
peculiar structure of the Methodist Church
does not make mere “union” essential to the
accomplishment ot its great spiritualjmission.
After the separation of the church into two
great bodies —the Northern and Southern—it
is a historical fact that they both prospered
more than at any former period since the
days of the sainted Wesley. Nor is there
any reason to suppose their uniting would in
any manner increase the the usefulness of the
body, Ami there is as much reason in re
quiring the I'estoiutioti again of the Metho
dist Church of Canada, or the union of the
British Wesleyans with the Northern Metho
dist Church, as for the reunion of that church
with the Southern Methodist Church. Ail
the courtesies of Christian intercourse can
us easily be maintained between the two lat
ter as they have been between the tluee for
mer churches, without consolidation.
Beside, the “Union" would make the body
100 unwieldy in many respects for the tree
exercise of its own functions.
Already the quadrennial assembly, known
ns the General Conference in the Northern
Church, must number two hundred and fifty
members. That of the Southern has, per
haps, near two hundred. I cannot now
pause to refer to statistics. If united, the
body in a few years would number several
hundred, and the expensiveness of holding
such an assemblage would compel its divi
sion. Indeed, at no very remote day it may
be found necessary to set off the Pacific
States into a separate church, and probably
others, by the Northern Methodist Confer
ence, for the above and other reasons; then
the Southern Church would again find it es
sential, also, to re-establish her independ
Nor is this all. The Church South feels
the necessity of making several important
changes in her general economy to meet the
changed conditions of society and extend
her usefulness ; and she does not wish uor
mean to be embarrassed by those who never
did, do not, and never can appreciate her
character, claims and obligations.
Tne Evangelical Methodist Church knows
nothing of politics. She will spread no flags
for her sacramental solemnities; nor will
she bedizen the sacred pulpit with symbols
of political pewer—no, not even with
“The Star-spangled Banner,”
though she will sincerely pray that it may
Wave o'er the land of the free
And tlie home of the brave "
If, however, the “Union” were desired on
the part of the Southern Church, the spirit
and temper of the leading officials of the
Northern Church arc such as to forever repel
her advances. Witness the Episcopal raid
over the South “flanking” the houses of God,
as horses were sometimes “flanked,'’ by loose
foragers who were foot-sore, and preferred
to ride.* Witness the sanguinary demands
iu the leading journals for the hanging of
eminent rebels, confiscation and penalties.
Political journals exhibit far more of the
spirit of the gospel than these Methodist
journals, to say nothing of magnanimity.
The Christiau people of the South simply
desire to be left in quiet. They underslaud
their situation, and by the grace of God they
will go forward in the performance of their
duties. They will support the government,
defend the Constitution, observe the laws,
render to Cccsar the things that arc Caesar’s,
and to God the things Unit are God's."
But Southern Methodists would sooner
seek repose and spiritual consolation in the
bosom of the Roman Catholic Clutch, a
thousand times over, than re-enter the bosom
of the Northern Methodist Church.
ludeed, we have been more kindly treated
by tlie Catholics than by the Northern Pro
testants for the past twenty-five years.
And here another reason against re union
addresses itself to my thoughts.
From ail I can learn, there is to be another
war—a war for the extirpation of the Roman
Catholic Church. When this battle comes
on, come as it may, whether with the pen,
the ballot or the sword, the Christian people
of the South will stand up side by side with
the assailed church. We intend to claim for
ourselves the right to worship God according
to the dictates of our own consciences and
the teachings of the word of God ; and the
South, true to her characteristic magnanimi
ty, will be no parly to the deprivation of any
other church of the same inalienable right.
In View of such a‘crisis and such a contro
versy, I would entreat all Southern Christian
people to maintain their present separate
status, letting the fury of Northern fanaticism
expend itself in these disgraceful raids upon
their ecclesiastical neighbors, while they give
themselves to the work of the ministry and
the feeding of the tioek of Christ. Already
the Northern Methodist Church stands up a
boasting political power iu the United States.
Rev. Bishop Simpson boasts that that church
elected the late President, Abraham Lincoln.
The Southern Church never dreamed of tol
erating the idea of so gross a departure from
her holy mission of publishing the Cross.
Now, if this Northern Church, alone
elected one President, how long would it re
quire the two churches combiued to elect
another, and then another?
Animated by the political ambition, nnd
inspired with the idea of a gigantic and
overshadowing church, the two bodies,
melted together, would, or, to say the least,
could control the future administration for
all coming time.
So profoundly am I penetrated with the
impending peiiTs menacing the land, in pros
pect of the domination of an apostate Pro
testant hieraicky, lhat I fed compelled to
warn my countrymen against giving encour
agement to the consolidation and solidarity
of great ecclesiastical establishments, whose
ambition, on the one side at least, has been
so recently flattered with the idea of having
tuled the destinies of this country for the
last four bloody yean.

THE FALL FASHIONS. ’
OPENING DAY IN NEW YORK.
[Prom tlie New York Herald of Sept. 23d.)
There was more real business done yestei
day than has been for many an opening past.
Money never seemed so abundant, and never
was more readily parted with. The new
styles excited a great deal of comment and
crticism, but admiration predominated.
They are new and odd—two great points in
their favor; small enough in the front to
answer all thlj requirements ot fashion, nnd
it is claimed wide enough at the cape to ad
mit of a “waterfall.” This we think doubt
ful, but inasmuch as fashion is fickle aud the
waterfall no novelty, the popularity of the
new bonnet will not depend on its adapta
bility to that style of wearing the hair.
Outside garments undergo little change
until later in the season, but one novelty, in
the shape of a sieeveess sack, has made its,
appearance this month, and will probably
retain its hold on popular favor, weather
permitting, for some time t<> come. Short
sacks, paletots, casaqucs, casquines and cir
culars are all worn indifferently, and are
equally popular and are equally fashionable.
The coming season will probably develope
some novelties in outside garments, which
are very much wanted, for though we have
variety enough we lack genuine novelties.
Indeed it is rumored that the winter will
bring us something decidedly original in this
department. This will be good news for
those who are tired of sacks and circulars
and long for radical changes.
The bonnets for the coming season are odd.
striking and original, rather than graceful
or pretty. Fashion, however, is exacting
only on one point, and that point novelty ;
and as the new styles arc novel enough to
satisfy the most whimsical taste, we presume
they will be popular accordingly. The
l'anchon. which held its ground tena
ciously during the summer, is, like the
summer, passing awav and giving place to
the.“Empire," the “Josephine," the “Gypsy,"
and outre looking nondescripts, formed by
curiouscombinationsoflhe.se three princi
pal varieties of the new style.
Crowns have come in again, but not so the
capes; these aie replaced by a straight, un
graceful band, which seems rather a prolon
gation of the crown than a cape. The crowns
are generally stiff and flat; but soft crowns
have also made their appearance; but these,
instead of drooping ns formerly, rise above
the level of the brim in full, erect puffs The
front is close and round resembling the old
cottage in shape but not in size. The trim
ming is confined almost exclusively to the
top of. the bonnet, and affects erect stateli
ness rather than careless grace ; and it must
be confessed there is something very striking
and attrac ive in its elegant though unyield
ing formality. This style of trimming is in
such strong contrast with the pendent sprays,
floating ribbons ana drooping feathers of the
last season that it is quite a relief to the eyes, •
fatigued with endless repetition of the one
idea. Flowers, berries, sprays and grasses
enter into the trimmings, and gold in every
form, from delicate ebainwork, glittering
fringe and tiny coin to burnished butterflies,
with outspread wings, lends its own peculiar
lustre. Lace is also much used in trimming,
and ostrich and marabout feathers are fre
quenlly teen enhancing the beauty and ad-'
ding to the elegance of the tout ensemble. —
The materials are royal and uncut velvet,
chip and silk, plain and embossed. Veils of
tu,le and Chantilly are attached to the left
side of the bonnet, imparting to it an airy
grace and costly elegance that add wondei
t'ully to its attractions.
Tne turoanß and round hats are still worn,
and some very pretty uovelties in this style
have made tbeir appearance at the opening
Prominent among these is the “Madeline,'
composed of black velvet, the full crown
confined by a baud of crimson velvet run
ning down the centre. A fauebon of black
velvet relieved with streamers of black and
crimson fulls over the waterfall, half hiding
and half revealing the glittering net in which
the mass of tresses are securely coiled. By
the way, if, as the poet says,
Beauty draws us withs single hair,
what mast be the effect of waterfalls?
Notwithstanding the marked chances in
the bonnet, it still continues very small; the
lront, in tact, is bat a nominal affair—a

foundation on which to arrange trimming—
“ouly that and nothing more.” As to its
being a shade for the lace or offering any
protection from the weather, that is absurd,
an old fashioned idea—so old fashioned, in
deed, lhat it is about time for it to come up
again as the latest fashion. The crown and
band look like providing against the winter,
and better still, they look like dispensing
with the waterfall, which is a thing to rejoice
at; for lhat artificial excrescence and manu
factured deformity has had its day and more
than its day, and we would be glad to see
the shape of the head once more.
As for colors, it would be impossible to say
which is most fashionable. Green is iu high
favor, and white for opera, and full dress is
in great demand. Promenade hats are
graver, but very elegant and stylish, and
We never remember to have seen a pleas
anter or more successful '‘opening’’ than that
of yesterday, one prepared for with so much
care aud participated in with so much zest.
The bonucts were generally admired—the
admiration in many instances being in pro
portion to the “oddity” of the bonnet, and
the unusual character of the trimming. Front
among the many that canto under our on
servation we wiil select a few, to describe iu
full, so that ladies who had not an opportu
nity of being present may have a correct
idea of tlie incoming styles.
In A. M. Stewart’s, a hat of white uncut
velvet, “ empire" shape, was universally ad
mired for its simple, refined elegance. ' The
most delicate blonde and the rarest ostrich
and marabout, through whose leathery
fringes could be indistinctly seen clusters of
glancing green berries, composed the trim
Beside this bonnet was placed the “Jo
sephine,” as odd, as elegant, as striking and
as outre as any hat worn Dy the graceful im
perial creole whose name It bears, and of
which it seemed to be a Lilliputian represen-,
tative. The material was black velvet, and
the trimming, flowers and gold ornaments
disposed round cape and brim stately aud
full, and around it was coiled a treble cord
of gold. From the cape dangled aud swung
small glittering ornaments, resembling a
shower ot gold and dazzling papillons, whose
prototypes could only he found in the myth
ical realms of the great El Dorado, hovered
over the strings, as if resting after a weary
fliulit. Rich crimson astors, gold sprays,
grey leaves aud black lace formed a very be
coming face cap.
Another very elegant hat of mauve velvet
attracted the attention ot the spectators,
and shared the honors with the “Josephine.”
The front was as small, but instead of being
round and shapeless it was pointed in the
centre in the well known “Mary Stuart”
shape, aud turned up in the side brim, from
which gold peudents swayed to and tro with
the slightest motion. This shape neither
permits nor requires a face cap, A veil of
tulle, dotted with golden stars, falls to one
side, forming a graceful fiuish aud producing
a very charming effect.
We must uot forget another gay, stylish
looking bonnet of the “empire" shape, made
of white royal velvet, laid plain on the foun
dation, brim and crown forming but one
piece. The junction of the crown and the
straight band, by courtesy or thorough cus
tom called ft cape, was hidden under a ruclt
ing of velvet, and a fall of black lace con
cealed its stiff, unyielding lines and impart
ed to it a factitious grace. Througit the cen
tre of tlie niching run a gold cord trimming
in tasels of the same material. Ou the
edge oi the brim a little to one side waved
a white and purple feather of mixed ostrich
and marabout, and on the other side purple
violets interspersed with coin completed tlie
trimming. It would be difficult to conceive
a more quietly elegant hat than this, or
without having seen it to imagine the possi
bility of softenmg down the formal outlines
of the present shape into suclt perfect grace.
Another hat of drab velvet with a plaited
silk crown ot the same color wound about
with gold cord and tassels, looks like an
tiquity modernized, and wants but a deep
brim to bring us back to the last century.
With the cron n, however, all resemblance
to past times ceases, for the front is as pre-
Dosterously, or, perhaps, we should say, as
elegantly small as any of its compeers.
In close proximity to this old-new-- hat,
which would puzzle the veriest Cuvier of a
modiste to assign to any peculiar class, was
a decided novelty, “the Stalactile,” a perfect
gem iu its way. It was made of white chip,
powdered with silver, and it flashed and
scintillated in the sunlight as if it had been
extracted irora some grotto or cavern. It
was trimmed with green velvet, and the bril
liant scarlet berries of hawthorn tree ar
ranged in a very peculiar aud very elegant
style. Rows of velvet disposed in narrow
ing circles formed a mound green as an em
erald, and within this mound were sprays
and grasses ol commingling green and gold
contrasting with the vivid scarlet of tlie
hawthorn berries, and all standing up so tali
and stately within their green enclosure. It
was quite artistic, and deseived all the ad
miration it excited and encomiums lavished
on it. The inside trimming corresponded in
character with the outside—it was formed of
a bandeau of green velvet, tblack and white
lnce, scarlet berries and golden heath.
Other bonnets of tlie same style, some
frosted, some powdered with gold, were on
exhibition, and received their due share of
attention. A frosted chip, trimmed with rose
pink ribbon and white blonde, was by uni
versal consent declared “ lovely.” Full
blown roses—clustered at the brim'so natural
that they might be supposed to have attract
ed the insect which is half hidden in the
heart of one—form the outside trimming,
and a bandeau of pink velvet caught up with
sliver drops, at the extremity of which is a
bouquet of moss rose buds," black and gold
spears of grass and sprigs of heather, forms
the inside trimming.
Another hat, with the trimming arranged
nnd twisted into something like a whimsical
resemblance to a cornucopia, from tbo open
mouth oi whiclt poured a profusion of grasses
and sprays and heather bells, was tlie centre
of admiring crowds thronghout the length of
There were some very pretty hats on ex
hibition yesterday formed of white silk, em
bossed with crape and velvet, and trimmed
witlt marabout and some extrem ly distingue
affairs made of black velvet. One, called
the “Gypsy,” was particularly striking, aud
deserves a passing notice. Its only trimming
was gold and Chantilly lace ; a veil of the
same costly material fringed with gold drops
fell to one'side, harmonizing with the design
and adding to the beauty of the lout ensemble.
Judging from the plentiful supply of opera
hats that graced the exhibition reoms this
opening, music will be in the ascendant dur
ing the winter. Every fashionable modiste
prepares hats for the Academy as regularly
as for the promenade; but this season they
appear to have received more than their
jisual share of attention, and to occupy more
than their usual space in the rooms. Asa
general thing white is the favorite color -, but
some prefer to suit their complexion rather
than follow fashion, and these instances of
individual assertion are trequent enough to
relieve the eye and avoid monotony.
It often happens that the very prettiest
bats, from their elegant simplicity, give little
room for detailed description, and must be
seen to be appreciated. So it is with an
opera hat of white royal velvet, without
flowers or feathers,‘that we saw in one of our
most foshionable modiste’s yesterday. A
bouquet of emerald green berries on one side,
a long tulle veil on the other, aud a delicate
gold cord, ending in tassels, was all the ar
tiste had to work with, and oat of these
slight materials she produced a bonnet that
could not fail to satisfy the most refined
Asa sort of offset to the smallness of the
bonnett, it may be mentioned that the prices
are large enough. The bonnet may contract
at the dictates of fashion, but the prices gen
erally more tliau make up for any falling off
in the quantity of the material Bonnets can
begot tor twenty live dollars, but three
times that amount is not thought unreason
able for a first class fashionable hat.
Throughout the day the different miiinery
establishments were crowded by iadieseager
to get the first view of the new styles. In
some there was a perfect jam, and in all
there was a pleasant, and we hope profitable,
bustle from morning until night. Whether
the success of the opeutng is to bo attributed
to the favorable weather or to the great in
flux of strangers among us we know not,
bill we do know that it is long since we have
had such an “opening" so satisfactory to all
parties, such a profuse display of metropoli
tan skill and such a keen appreciation of it.
in this department there is not anything
very new to chronicle. All the light, elegant,
flimsy fabrics of the summer have disappear
ed with the equinox, and are replaced by
those heavy materials and warm co’ors that
form so pleasant a contrast to the fading
leaves of autumn. Moire antiques, rich silks,
pjplius, alpacas, Empress cloth, reps and
tlie endless variety of goods for winter wear
strew the counters of Stewart's, Lord & Tay
lor's, and all tlie fashionable establishments
were our New York ladies delight to spend
their time and their money. Plain silks are
nhvays elegant, aud stripes and small bro
caded patterns very desirable. Changeable
silks are still to be seen, though Dot so
fashionable as formerly. Dresses en suite—
that is, the dress, under skirt nnd basque of
the same color and material—arc the newest
style and the highest fashion just now.
Extravagance is still the order of the day
nnd asserts its sway now over magnificent
silks as it did over the airy nothings of sum
mer. It has simply changed its base of ope
rations, and gained in tlie heavy goods of
the approaching season a firmer field for dis
play. The trimmings are diverse, complica
ted and profuse, sometimes in good taste,
hut more often in direct.opposition to it. —
They consist of velvet, ribbon, lace, silk
fringe, braid and the latest novelty, goid and
silver cord. Cord is also used of other colors
to match the dress, where gold cord is not
desirable or suitable. By tlie way, gold en
ters very much into trimmings of all kinds
this season. It mingles with the flowers in
the bonnets, it dangles from the veils, it glit
ters among the embroidery, and even in rich
collars of point lace we see it shining.
Sashes arc very popular, and form a very
important item ot trimming. Those wide,
ungainly belts lhat no lady could wear with
impunity, have disappeared, and in their
stead we have belts of a moderate width,
fastened with clasps or buckles.
There are so many ways of making tLe
corsage that ail tastes, however diverse, are
sure of finding some styles to suit them
Pointed waists are still in fashion, with one
or more points at front, back or over the
sides. The round waist is again working its
way into favor, and the “Bolero’ and other
jacket shapes hold their ground against all
competition. Long coat tails are still worn l
so also is tlie deep square basque. Both
styles are ungraceful, and if good taste, and
not fashion, were consulted would not ob
tain more than an ephemeral popularity.—
But the present rage is for something striking,
no matter what is sacrificed to obtain it, and
that that end is attained must lie conceded by
In the hands ot a skillful modiste this por
tion of the dress gives character and tone to
the entire. Some dress-makers imagine they
have done everything that could be desired
when they make a handsome corsage and
stylish sleeves, each unexceptionable in it
self but uo more suitable to each other than
a Tuscan capital on a Corinthian column.—
It is a mistake, however, which a true artist
will never commit, for she recognizes the
fact that peifection in the details never makes
up for want of unity and harmony in the
In view of the many different styles of
sleeves that we may select from it would be
well to bear these few words of warning in
The wide flowing sleeve of former days
and the voluminous undersleeve are no long
er to be seen. The revolulion of time has
brought us almost to the opposite extreme._
Sleeves are worn now almost tight to the'
arm, barely leaving space lor a close fitting
Sleeves half tight to the elbow, and
trimmed with an oval tab on the back or
with puffings at the top and bottom of the
sleeve, are much worn, as is also the funnel
shape, the Cara, &c.
Caps are almost universally worn, and
formed in all sorts of shapes, epaulettes,
points and medallions being the favorites.
The amplitude of the skirt is not in the
least diminished and its length is rather in
creased. The universal practice of looping
up the dress in the streets was likely at first
thought to lead to the erroneous impression
that economy was the object, and therefore
prompt measures were taken to squelch out
such a derogatory idea. The jupe (it would
be profanity to call those elegant articles
petticoats) is often made of the same materi
al as the dress, more fully trimmed and more
elaborately ornamented, fluted, braided,
scolloped and corded than any dress, and
finished in the most expensive style. It is
thus, by deeds not words, ottr ladies assert
In the skirt, as in the other portions of
the dress, profuse trimming is the rule. It
is sometimes carried round tlie bottom of the
skirt, and sometimes extends up each seam.
It is arraigned in talis or lozengers, or laid on
in bins lold ; in fact, in every conceivable form
that trimming can be made to assume, nnd
in every available spot where trimming can
be placed, we find it. Fluting is now gen
erally confined to the underskirt. Designs
embroidered with silk or braid, and inter
spersed with gold or stecljbends, will be in fa
vor this winter, and on heavy material will
be both elegant and effective. Cord is also
in high favor, and where properly used is
styiisu and distingue looking. In short, skirt
trimming has been carried to such an excess
that we may confidently expect a return to
simplicity ; for in this,’ as in other things,

THIS Invention consists of Duplex (or two; Ellptlc
Pure Refined Steel Springs, Ingeniously braided
tightly and firmly together, edge to edge, making the
toughest, most flexible, elastic am) durable Spring

will be experienced particularly in all crowded Assent
hlics, Operas, Carriages. Railroad Cars, Church Pews,
Arm Chairs, for P.omenade nnd House Dress, as the

place as easily and conveniently as a Silk or Muslin
A ladyhsving enjoyed the pleasure, comfort and
great convenience of wearing the Duplex Elliptic
Steel Spring Skirt for a single day will never after
wauls willingly dispense »ith their use. For children
misses nnd young ludies they are superior to all oth
The Hoops arc covered with 2 ply doable twisted
thread and will wear twice as long as the single yarn
covering which la used on all Single Steel HoopSklrts
The three bottom rods on every Skirt are also Double
Steel, aud twice or double covered to prevent the cov
ering Irora wearing off the rods when dragging down
stairs, stone steps, #c., which they are constantly
subject to when 111 use.
All are made ot the new and elegant Cn.ded Tapes,
and are the best quality In every part, giving to the
