Tb?airy'clorida through heaven
Are moviog leisurely!
High over men'arid nations,
-Arid high c/or tho billowy sea:
' hrti mi og with eb ?erial splendor,
By friendly bre?se? unfurled,
J . Like paacefnl banners waving
Abovo the cruel world.
Now pouring down tho showers
. To gladden tho blooming laud
i1n sooth, tho richest blessing
From God's almighty bund.
"Tis true thoy hurl the lightnings
And bid tho thunders pua 1,
, Yet doth tho friondly iris
On thom her face reveal.
The storm howls through thu b. poohes
From their tcrial height ;
*, Tlio leaves and flowers aro scattered
And quickly vanish from sight.
Midway, 'twixt earth and heasten,
. Like guardian' spirit a they go,
And gaze at the stars above them,
And look on the world balow.
, ??rotn polo to pole they wander
.', Like homeless fugitives,
Ami exhale In pearly toar-drops
Their transitory lives.
Th? Spring Vaihtom.
Tho fashions introduced aro quito
. wetly and attractive, although Lhere
Lavo been few radical changes.
There is no increase in tho size of
the new spring bonnets, as far as
we have yet seen. Tho Fanchon is
the favorite Bbupe, and satin and steel
upon speckled silk, chip nud straw,
the favorite trimmings and materials.
Bonnets are of lace, of feathers and
of headed tulle, iu simple styles.
Lace medallions of oval, diamond,
or triangular Bhape, are sometimes
prettily displayed over pearl grey,
pink and laveuder velvet. Orna?
ments oro placed directly over thc
forehead in the point formed by thc
curved diadem added to the Fanchon.
Velvet aud lace bows, with ouds, arc
placed nigh up on the back of thc
bonnet. A becomiug bonnet for t?
blonde is of beaded lace over tulle,
with a wreath of green berries fram?
ing tho face, and u wide fall of lace
caught nnder the chin by a bunoh ol
leaves. Tho neatest gem of a bonnel
is sorircely three inches iu widtl
across tho top; the veil forming tin
principtd part of tho coiffure. Thc
veil is mantilla-shaped, und o
chantilly lace, sewn on full at thc
back, and falling down to the collar
Velvet leaves surround the front.
Walking suits, with a siujjlo skirl
simulating two, hnvo given place tt
those with double skirts. Som<
suits have tho upper skirts formet
into a .sundi train, which is to bi
looped up, disclosing a gay petticoa
beneath. Four buttons and loop
are the .simple accessories, or ma
chiuery for festooning the long uppe
? skirt. Black velvet dresses are won
over scarlet, blue, or greon satii
petticoats. Passementerie, jet, fringi
and satin piping ornament tho volve
skirt. Tho satin may bo either Ief
plain or bound with velvet of th
same shade, cut bias. Two or th re
narrow ruffles of satin aro also used
Striped petticoats of very handsom
material?, gros grain, nit er na ti h|
with velvet stripes, aro fashiounbl,
worn without trimming.
Vfcry neal and very desirable suit
ure made of serge, winsey, or wafei
proof elotli, trimmed with cross-en
band? of silk stitched on, and bronze
buttons. Plain gored skirts, cut th
proper walkiug length, and trimme
to siiniluto an upper skirt, shot
sack, or paletot, trimmed to matel
is the proper stylo for these simp]
and useful dresses. Fancy design!
such as open sleeves, Afarie Ay
toinette fleh us, mid the like, should b
Tosorved for moro showy material!
Stiits aro doing for tho clonk &tort
what the small bonnets have done ft
tho milliners-almost closed thei
np. Their occupation is gone.
sae or paletot en suite is considered f
sufficient for outdoor wear OS a clou
that cost fifty to a hundred dollar;
a sum that will buy two entire ord
nary street suits, and ono entire (.:
truordiimry one, much handsome
than tho cloak and any ordinal
dress could be. . Tho most stylis
new suits or costumes for s?rir
wear are mada pi rich black or atom
colored silk, or speckled poplin, an
consists of doublo skirt, fancy jacki
with capo and hanging sleeves, (
Mario Antoinotto scarf. Tho lath
is very useful in black silk, ns it on
be worn afterwards with any dres
For the under skirt tho most fashioi
ablo trimming is three narrow Riffle
unless tho suit is made in poplin, ai:
then cross-cut bands of silk uro ben
handsomely finished in tho enibrc
dory stitch. Wo do not advise sat
/olds for a suit, because they fray t<

quick; but ?f sat?n ia grv Uy pre-,
f erred, yet tbick bou net sati: , -with a
linen back, is niuoh cheaper, aa well
aa more durable and aa handsome in
appearance. Hanging sleeves, for
outdoor wear, are out shorter than
th oso attru*ed tc ii ?i ned dresses, '
and, instead of being square at the
bottom,) are rounded away almost to
a point.. Glose coat sleeves must
always be worn beneath them.
For ladies in warm latitudes the
proper costume for the present sea?
son is a high dress, gored plain, ex?
cepting at the back, whero it is
gathered; and a Marie Antoinette
fichu or scarf, ofossed in front, and
tied in a wide bow or kuotted at tho
buck, the rounded emla descending
upon the skirt. This is a quaint,
simple, yet stylish dress-best made
in black silk, yet ns handsome in
grey, and very nine in grey, with
black fichu, which will afterwards be
available for wear with grenadiuo
and muslin dresses.
Among the very prettiest and best
of the new spring goods already on
exhibition aro beautiful linens in fine
stripes ami small diagonal checks.
They aro extremely delicato and
cool for summer morning dresses,
and vory desirable besides. They
aro also very nico for children's
suits. There are also English priuts,
in small, delicate patterns, of Hoyle's
manufacture, such as have not been
seen here since 18G0, selling for
twenty-fivo cents per yard. During
the war the few yards left over of
this kind sold for seventy-five cents
SACKS AND WRAPPINGS.
New and very pretty Bpring sacks
aro made of soft, light-colored cloth,
almost white, with revers velvet.
The lower edge is fiuished in points
bound with velvet, and stitched on
to the straight edge of tho sock. Tho
points and tho revers suggest a good
method of freshening tho old light
cloth suck for spring wear, ut very
little trouble or expense.
Loose, square breakfast jackets are
giving place to bodices with tight
fitting sleeves and a sash worn at the
side. Another stylo has a small
basque attached to tho waist instead
of a sash.
For young ladies there is tho pro?
mise of the "Colleen Jlawn," or ono
of the prettiest outdoor garments
ever introduced. It cousists of a
single or donble capo or talma,
gathered in the centre, and orna?
mented with a rosette, lt also com?
pletes a charming suit for little girls.
Tho rediugote, literally great-coat, is
still worn, and is so convenient, as
well os stylish, that it cnn hardly fail
to become a universal favorite. A
redingote may be mado of silk or
velveteen, and requires only a band
of the same muterial upou any old
skirt to complete the snit. Buttons
down the frout and a side sash to tic
at. the back aro tho only trimming!:
Tho now gloves for spring weal
have made their appearance in tin
rarest and choicest shades of color
light bismarck, wood, lilac and buff,
being the fashionable bases of severn
of these; thero aro no less thar
seventy different shades, tho tints ol
whi.-h run so close that it is only bj
putting them together that experi
enoed judges can detect tho differ
euee. Tluy are all long upon thc
wrist, and aro embroidered in eithei
black or white. Those that aro em
broiderod iu black are finished upoi
the edge of tho wrist with a fine fob
of 'I.mbini black kid stitched on
Those that are embroidered will
white are finished in white kid. Th<
back of tho wrist aro ornamcntet
with gilt eyelets, laced with fine sill
cord, and crimped tassels; or mon
fashionably still, with small gilt studi
and tassel*. For fastening both
studs and tinettes aro used.
