A story is told of a certain elderly dandy who
eondnucs to pass himself off lor younger than he
is, by the aid of these complicated appliances, and
who has recently engaged, as talet de chambre, a
young fellow freshly imported from his native
yillsge. The valet, who has been impressed by
the graces of his new master's person, and who
had no suspicion of their artificial nature, wua
greatly nma.ed on assisting him to undress, on
the night of his entrance on his new place, at the
work ol demolition in which he was called upon
to assist. The coat and vest carried oil- with
them the rounded outlines that bad showed to
such advantage tho moment before, and at tho
unbuckling of the cortet, the jaunty npright-ne-s
of the dandy underwent an equally sud
den eclipse. The withered and shrunken being
duly wrapped in a dressing-gown, the old
bean seated himself at his dressing-table, and
proceeded to take himself to pieces. The removal
of the lustrous brown wig revealed a perfectly
bare scalp; the white teeth followed the wig, and
were carefully placed in a glass of water for the
tiipht. Tho pair of gutta-percha "plumpers," so
skilfully placed between tho gums and tho
cheeks, were carefully taken out, betraying the
hollows they had soetloetuully distended, and an
artificial eye was next removed from the empty
rocket. The amazement of the unsophisticated
errant had been at last deepening into horror,
as he witnessed these successive transformations!
nnd when the ox-dandy, stooping towards his
lower extremities, proceeded to unfits en a pair
of fa.se calves, the valet, imagining that bis mas
ter was going to take himself completely to pieces,
cxclaiintd in a tone of mingled anxiety and
terror ; "Oh, monsieur le marquis; pray do leave

WORTH. THE WOJItHH TAILOR, I!
There is a man in I'arls, by namo of Worth,
who is caiiea 1110 "Woman's Tailor," because ho
lias gone into the dress-making basincse for
ladles, and keeps the most fashionable establish
ment in that grent city. The following, from the
Tarls correspondence of tho Boston ;uttte, will
give some idea of tho man and his business. He
Is all the rngc with the upper crust, nnd is making
a fortune, pays this I'aris correspondent :
"Worth, tho woman's tailor, bus returned lo
town, and commenced bis season. Do not won
der If I mention him next utter divorces; he has
caused more divorces than any other man in
l'nris, for If your wife's ball dress is not madn
and put on by him, she is disgraced, nnd if be,
does not make them yon are ruined. Is It his
fault that his rates of charging am so high f
Make the days 4H hours long and relicyo him of
the vulgar wants of sleeping and eating, he will
abate oil per cent, of bis prices, hoduce his
customers into paying cash, and he will
muko a further reduction. Ihe Kmnresa hni

books than tho one year's subscription of a delin

yon would be sure to make an ironical gesture
not very complimentary to my reeard for truth.
Tho state saloona of tho Tuiierics are not
more splendid. Oildlug is lavished on them,
the door curtains aro lieanvais tapestry, the win
dow curtulns and rumimro are of the finest
Lyons brocade, and the furniture is IJonlo, civ-h

He has, in one of bis many rooms, a buffet
constantly spread, where the best sandwiches,
the choicest sherry and Madeira, a-id the most
utueaio canes, are served in prottiHion to his cus
tomers. Ho is constantly surrounded by twolve
beautiful young ladies, selected for the perfection
of their shape as well as face. They aro attired
in the height of the modi!, in silk dresses, whiett
cost four dollars it yard, costly Ktrnscnn ear
rings, bracelets, and rings. They are 'part of tho
iiirniiureoi me place; tncy are here what oslor
mannlkms are In Inferior shops ; tho dresses are
bung on them tbut Worth's patrons may sec tho
elleet produced. No dress ever qnits bis esta
blishment priced less than two hundred dollars
in gold, mind ye! we don't take yonr green
backs here! Whenever a ball is given at thu
Tuiierics, or at any of tho embassies, you may
count two nunnreu e images at ins uoor from as
early as six o'clock in the evening. Each lady
receives a number, and is called in turn. They
come with their hair dressed, their petticoats and
corsets on, wrapped in a secoud-rato dross, until

You may wonder that ladles should consent to
cxposo their ptrsons to the finders and eyes of a
mun. He is nota man in thelreves he is nothing
but a tailor a tradesman and what high-born
person ever stooped to Inquire to what sex such a
plebeian belonged ) One bad us soon think of
inquiring into the sex of the dog with whom his
wif j went into the woods for a walk, or of the cat
who sleeps in my lady's chamber. Worth, a few
years since, was a mere shopman in Uangerlin's
shop in the Hue de Kichclieu. lie saw there the
extent of feminine folly, and determined to profit
by experience He has now a beantiful country
seat which cost him 140,000 and on which he hag
pent ifbo.oou. He keeps a carriaito and nair
equal to anything in the imperial stables. He has
a first-rate cook, has a cellar which is daily im
proving, and is making money as fast as possible.
