Important to Ladies.
A visit to the Maison Tilman, of
147 Env-t Ninth Street, New York,
convinces us that Fashion never gave
her votaries a greater profusion of
costly and elegant styles to select from
than in the present season.
Bonnets aro exceedingly small, but
what is wanting in quantity is made
up for in quality, all the materials
being of the linear, choicest kinds, and
thoroughly Parisian. Though trim?
ming is lavishly used, it is hardly re?
quired, so fanciful and decorative are
thc delicate chips; tho pretty Italian
and fine English straws, not to mention
the Neapolitan, which form the dain?
tiest hisket and .V?gree work, dotted j
with small crystal, pe;.ri or jet beads.
Siraw cloth, a mixture of Leghorn
and silk, constitutes some of the most
effective and stylish bonnels. The}
are frequently ornamented with a deli
cate embroidery of beads, and trimmed
with a narrow ribbon cf the same ma?
terial :.s the bonnet; worked with
beal let, black, blue or pm plc. Flowers
are gracefully entwined, and the com- j
bitia?on is generally a very great sue I
cess. These straw ribbons are also ?
much used for the trimming of round
hats, and also border the most expon- j
sive styles of silk ribbons. ?
Bonnets are of different shapes;
some are only a half handkerchief of
silk cr straw, others have short, slop?
ing crowns. The Mr?t style is denned |
by young la lies, or any oue wearing a
waterfall. The latter are more adopted
by ladies who consider the waterfall
toe youthful a style of coiffure. The
shapes are close, some fitting the face !
almost like a cap, and admitting ot but
little face trimming. Curtains aro ig- |
nored by all, though in many the
space accorded to the latter is filled by I
a fail ot lace, or feather fringe; The i
haH' handkerchief bonnets are gene- I
rally trimmed with clustering loops of I
ribbon wilh very long end?, Howers, or
searls of illusion edged with narrow |
blonde lace. Sometimes lhere are but !
two streamers of ribbon, which are
eau jlit together a short distance below
the bonnet by a bow. A pretty style
consists of two scarfs cr strips of il?
lusion half a yard wide, and three
quarters long. These are caught
inside of the front o( the bonnet, pass
over it, and are fastened just over the
waterfall with a tuft ol flowers, or a
mother-of-pearl butterfly, star, or fancy
Others have very long tulle stream?
ers to fasten under the chin. Nothing
CHU he lighter and ptetticr than these
scarfs thrown over a !u!ie or crape
bonnet. They aro perishable, we
admit, but exceedingly light and grace?
ful, and can be renewed at a trifling
A new style of straw bonnet has
the straw pressed out in diamonds,
which gives the effect of tufting, each
little tuft apparently kept in place by
a pearl, crystal, or jet bead.
A very original bonnet in fine En?
glish straw, is embroidered on the
edge of a delicate head-pattern. At
the back two crimped straw pull's,
ornamented with brilliant b'ue en?
amelled insects, lorin a waterfall. This
is surmounted by white ribbon brocad?
ed in the cen1 re in green, scarlet and
black. Scarlet poppies with jet, fancy
grass and narrow quilling of black
lace complete the decora'tions of the

trimmed with a fall of green feather*.- *

foi med of straw are caught in festoons,
and hang quite lo.v on the neck. The
ribbon is s:riped straw color an I green,
and has the appearance of fine silk
Drawn silk bonnets are greatly in
favor for traveling. The drawing are
far apart, not "mo. o than three being
used. They are generally finished by
a pinked out rose quilling of (he vdlk,
and h'Ops of nobou arranged at the
back of the bonnet. Tho niche is
gi..dilated, being quite, larga jn the

I'be sn-^w iiake-like tully bonnets,
j aro always attractive, and we think
thom among the prettiest for summer
I wear. They me generally puffed j
lengthwise, nnd ornamented with tulle
! scarfs, which we have already de? j
I scribed, and very rich flowers, with j
I frosted or icy foliage. Falls of silk j
fringe are also employed with good
effect. The strings generally com?
mence at the point of the waterfall
and are thence' brought down under
the chin. So shallow are the shapes,
that the strings almost form the sides
of the boimet.
Crape is very much worn, fulled or I
folded over silk. When the bouuet is j
thin, the front its generally bouud au
inch deep with silk matchings the
crape. Crape, aud crape liese, match?
ing tho bonnet in color, are both em?
ployed for inside ruell inga.
At tho same establishment we find
the greatest variety of crystal and
fancy ornaments, which, however, we
will not bu able to enumerate, as we
must say a few words about round
One of the newest styles is a Scotch
cap with a inelou shaped crown made
of' a light, scalloped-edged straw, the
indeuture in thu crowu being very
deep. Another shape, termed the
Cracovienue, has a square crown. An?
other shape still is a full, round crown,
willi narrow brim, the same tsize all
roifnd. The cap-shape, however, seems
to be the most popular with young
ladies. There are, of course, many
other very graceful shapes, but those
we have mentioned we think will be
thc most fashionable, as they are made
up in all skes, from babies to ladies.
A novelty, however, consists in cutting
away one half tho crown, and tilling
in the space with black lace finished
with ribbons and flowers. Another
variation of this style has quite a long,
drooping crown of lace; this we do not
like, lt is a kind of a compromise
between a bonnet and hut, aud not
Another fiat, called the Havelock,
thc crown cut away and a very long
bag crowu of colored silk attached, in
which the hair is arranged This is
more novel than pretty, but would
answer very well for a traveling hat,
as the waterfall would be piotected
from the dust.
The most elegant trimmings are
black and white ribbons, brocaded on
the edge or down the centre, iu a rich
cashmere pattern. Heavy ribbons
with scalloped edges fringed. Scarfs
of black lace, jet, straw and euamfel
ornaments; flutters and feathers, also
! Brazilian beetles, iu their peculiar bril?
liant shade of green. This shade of

Tbs new color known as "moon or.

but inappropriate title. It is a very

j nothing more. This shade is extreme
j ly fashionable, and can be had iu iib
j hons, silks, crepes, feathers and flowers
! As Mr. Brodie's speciality is wraps
we found at his establishment, in Cana
street, near Broadway, New York, ?
magnificent collection of elegant une
graceful models, which cannot fail t<
give universa! satisfaction.
Among the less costly are the short
lnose cloth sacks of almost every hue
They are made with a straight collar
coat sleeves and pocke's; breast pocket
are frequently simulated by trimming
Some are of a lovely shade of pear
colored cloth with diagonal cords
j others of Chinese grounds, with a soft
plated facing of white; others agaii
ase of a fleecy material, striped, whit
aud mauve, or white and gray. Whit
cloth trimmed with black velvet, an
extremely light shade of cuir, gra)
and a very pink shade are all ver
popular. Tho trimmings consist c
bia k velvet, a gimp formed of worat
ed cord, braids matching the clotl
Tom Thumb fringe, and cords and ta:
sels. Duttons are also extensively use
as decorations, and never have we see
such an elegant variety. Some are th
I size of a small bird's egg, of browi
blu?, white or black, spatiuod bv a ban
o' gold or steel. Others resemble
I cluster of tiny pearls, or a single pea
! the size of a pea. Flat, round ar

nowfcbt. Other novel styles ure of jet

have a mosaic figure in the centre.

Short sacks are made of silk for
missus, but tlio demiojasfCe or half
tight fitting style, is conshlercd the
most fashionable for young ladies,
the trimmings are rich jet ar.d silk
gimps, and ornaments, chenillo aud
silk cords. These trimmings aro luid
down tho seam.; and form the Culis,
collar and epaulettes. "Others are trim?
med with thick cord and heavy tag?
ged buttons looped across the chest to
the left shoulder, iu the Hungarian
style. All kind of trimmings up the
back aro exceedingly popula?.
On a mantle of very heavy mourn?
ing silk, called very appropriately the
"Grant"' mantle, were Lieutenant
Geueral shoulder bands of black velvet,
with the stars of jet. The same orna?
ment was arrau?ed at the back of the
wrist with admirable effect. Circles are
by no means discarded; they are, how?
ever, reserved for elderly ladies.
Heavy (/ros grain bilk is generally pre- ;
ferred to tho lustrous, and when of
good quality, requires but little trim- !
We hive noticed quite a number of
paletots, with a large rosette with very
long streamers of ?ilk ribbon or lace
placed on one shoulder. A very
graceful pardessus was trimmed down
the seams of the skirt, on the front,
and on the sleeves, with flat bows and
ends of silk, with a jet ornament in
the centre. Some of thc paletots
have each Kearn and the edge scallop?
ed and trimmed with lace, fringe, or
We were shown at Mr. Voger's
establishment. No. 101(5 Chesoutstreet,
Philadelphia, the handsomest assort?
ment of goods in mohair lace that we
have ever seen. So fine are the laces,
and so exquisite the designs, that
unless very closely examiued, they can?
not be detected from thread lace. They
are no common imitation*; but are
really exquisit? articles. Some of the
rotondes, or circles, are exceedingly
long, others asa of moderate length.
They are made'up to suit the most
capricious tastes, some with round, full
hoods, others with square yokes, or
else perfectly plain, with square or
rounded ends in front. Besides these
retondes, aro tho graceful hali shawls
or points, as they are termed, always
fashionable and pretty. Shawls and
circles are also to bo had of white
mohair lace, and no better assortment
of real thread wraps eau be ftxiud in
Among the novelties we find the
becoming little Spanish square for the
head, in point applique; also square
capes, a pretty and stylish finish to the
low-necked dresses now so much worn.
The capeline is a pointed cape in black
lace, with hood attached, n very dressy
little affair for a watering place.
For the ornamentation of dresses
there aro bunches of wheat-ears in
black lace, medallions, nyadere trim?
mings, aud long graduated sashes to
hang all round the skiit, and various
other fanciful designs. As these goods
aro all of mohair lace, they are much
less expensive than the thread, and the
effect, at a short distance, is equally as
good. For wash dresses, there is a
thread bice resembling Valenciennes,
which has the merit of washing and
wearing well, and being about half
the price of tho ordinary Valencieiirtes.
For neglige wear, there are bhet
land shawls of all styles and colors,
also coverings for ibo head.

apropos of the surrender of the gi eat

'When 1 went to the palace.' says his
lordship., '1 alighted at the grand stair?
case; 1 was received by the sticks of
gold and silver, and other officers of
tho household, who called in sonorous
tones from landing to landing, and
apartment to apartment, 'room for the
lord high chancellor of England.' I
entered the presence chamber; I gav?
tire seals to her majesty; I bad the
honor of kissing her hand; I left the
apartment by another door, and found
myself on a buck staircase,- down
which I descended without any one
taking any notice of me, until, as I
