HINTS ABOUT DRESS.
Alphonso Karr has wittily;'if not rev
.n•ently, said, that the toilette of-women
is like the altar which the Greeks erected
to the unknown god ; they dress" they
know not for whom. Throughout the
animal creation the brightest enlemaint.
gayest plumage are almost invariably
given to the male ; but in the case of
'limn, it is the feminine element which
travels in brillianthuos, and it is to woman
, vre must look to preserve" the [esthetic
palance of the universe. Man furnishes
t lie element of power, — we look to her for
the graceful and the beautiful. And as
it is to the eye that the beauty of woman
first appeals, that sonso demands impo-
I x:lonely to have its rights. The first duty
'of woman to society is to dress,well.
•. Now to dress well, is not necessarily .
to dross OxponsiVely, , it Is only to dress
appropriately. But : to accomplish this
needi an intimate knowledge' of ono's '
self, a kuowlodgo. Which, strange as' it(
mayyseern, few peOplo possess', because
it is-only to be, acquired bycareful study,
and a most candid and impartial scrutiny.
A really vain woman never dresses wolf,
' beeause sho has the hardihood to ima,
' gino that oho looks well in anything, and
tosses upost hOr person a medley of in-
„congruous Ohms and forms, thitt, tcwiso
'an expressive French idiom; swear at
;each othOr, as well as at every 'shade in
her complexion, every lino in her shape.
"'Pio three grand unities of dress are
timo, place, and , person. The woman
who knows herself to bo fifty, and dresses
,uorsistently like fifteen, loses Um advent-,
Igo that a careful adjustment of sober
, tones and matronly combinations would
have given her, and brings the faded
tints of lior - complexion - into 'dangerous
proximity tothedapliog colors of youth.
While recourse to the. coarse and una
vailing devices of paints and dyes cannot
be too earnestly deprObatedievery logltl
mato means of Cottoning tho ravages of
:,imo by judicious concealments and tho
.150 of quiet, but cheerful tints, must be
umsiderednotonlylogitimato, but praise
worthy. A, sober richnesS of attirO takes
the place of tho airy fabrics and gaudy
hues of oarlier.yoars, and in tbo velvets,
locos, and diamonds permitted to the
i,matron,, ; sho can surely, hud consolation
" for the loss of the rose, and tarlatansof
' , :!tho young girl. Form, too, should
1 change with, the years: Because a nook
land bust are loVely7to look at in' the
bloom of youth, it , by,„no means follows'
, ;'that we care to see tlieir ruins twenty
9yeara after, and the eiquisitely tender
and graceful screen of lace, which veils
the shoulders Of an-old beauty, testifies
at,lince to her modesty- and her good_

ess dress liko a milkmaid ; it is her duty,
as Well as her privilege, to delight our
eyeii with magnificence, the creamy sheen

the brilliant flashes of precious stones.
And most assuredly e we' do not wish to
see the niilkmaid ape the duchess. What
would becbine of her dairy while she was
attending to her toilette, add how would
her panic?? consort with 101'1141k pans.?
A servant looks much more lad,y+' like, if
shOdid but know it, in neat and modest
garments Witting 'ber 'duties, than she
does rigged out in tawdry finery which
imitatea the worst taste of her mbstreas ;
and the daughter of a poor man is love
lier in a simple merino which she can
afford, and is at ease in -wearing, than in
any extravagant pomp'of gill and* satin.
Our American ladies aro often cen
sured by foreigners for wearing toilettes
to rich and gaudy forth° place in which
they may happen to be. These critics
complain of their slovenliness in drag
ging superb dresios through the mire of
the town ; and now that the fashion of
sweeping the streets, with ladies' trains
is happily abated;-of the display in those
streets of toilettes so gorgeous in color
and, rich'in *niaterial as to attract every
_diet the_ attention of every
lounger.., The pronounced him-of fash
ionable toilettes at present to do that
very thing; and to enable the wearer to
pass-through a gauntlet-of vulgar obser
vation, which would cause a truly mod
est woman to sink into tho ground with
shame. Balsae says that. we have be
lieved the mowches of the eighteenth con
tury lost v or forgotten ; we are mistaken:
To 7 day, the Women, 1001'0 skilful than
those of the. past, seek the gaze of the
.opera glass by the most audacious strat
agems. This ono first discovers the
rosette of ribbons, with a diamond in the
centre, which attracts the attention of
an evening, that ono revives a past mode,
sublime efforts, these Waterloos of co
quetry or love, then become fashions to
the inferior Spherac while those happy
creatures aro seeking new Ones. BM; to
attract attention, it is needless to say, is
not 'synonymous with dressing well, or
wo might take a perambulating adver-,
tisor for our model, and no woman is
well dressed who wears in the street the
materials and colors only fit for the
house, or who persists in dragging
through the dirt a train only intended to
be worn in a carriage. And of all forms
of bad dressing, tho worst is to be over,
dressed, for it adds the Nulgarity-olos
tentation to the list of our Facial crimes.
Accidents will happOit;: - ' 4f - course, and
the victim whom a prolonged experience
has convinced that "a few friends"
means a full dresopartyof five hundred,
will oocasionally Stumble upon a genuine
reunion of half a dozen, in all the pomp,
and circumstance of his war paint, but
then the toffOtto is its own and all suffi

but never One wick touched my heart'as
the untimely decease uv Colonel

The Kemal knowed that the war wuz

The Kernel mul I wus in the orlis uv
the hotel, when his beamin 'eye• hap

onto this name :
" Wondayl PLilip., BohLon, 31-as."
The Kernel staggered as though Le

apart by the hotel dells, the two will)
arrested by a policeman handy by, and
dragged off to the Magistrate's Mils, and
on a heario of the lase, the Kerael wuz
fined $2O and costs.
