ON A NAUGH2Y LITTLE BOY, BLEEP.
Just now I missed from hall and stair A joyful treble, that had grown As dear to me as that grave tone That tells the world by older care. And little footdteps on the floor Were stayed. I laid aside my pen, Forgot my theme, and listened-then Stole softly to the library door. No sight! no sound !-a moment's freak Of fancy filled my pulses through; " If--no "-and yet that fancy drew A father's blood from heart and cheek. And then-I found him! There he lay, Surprised by sleep, caught in the act, The rosy Vandal who had sacked His little town, and thought it play: The shattered vase; the broken jar; A match still smoldering on the floor; The inkstand's purple pool of pore; The chessmen schattered near and far. Strewn leaves of albums lightly pressed This wicked "Baby of the Woods; " In fact, of half the household goods This son and heir was seized-possessed. Yet all in vain, for sleep had caught The hand that reached the feet that strayed; And fallen in that ambuscade, 'The victor was himself o'erwrought. What though torn leaves and tattered book Still testified his deep disgrace! I stooped and kissed the inky face, With its demure and calm outlook. Then back I stole, and half beguiled My guilt, in trust that when my sleep Should come, there might be One who'd keep An equal mercy for his child. BR ET HARTE. "."C-- IMPROVED FIG-LEAVES. Wraps and Searfs for the Promenade and Drive-A New Color Already Fash ionable-Dresses for Children. It is a matter of surprise how soon it was found out how necessary wraps were for the promenade and drive. Last year the polonaise or basque was wrap enough; but now one has an un finished look with these alone. And the wrap may be the veriest bit of lace orsilk, and look all-sufficient. Those worn with grenadine are nar rpw strips of grenadine, with a seam in the back, to fit nicely, and then either crossed in front and carried to the back, where the ends form 'ashes, or they are knotted low on the waist and the ends left hanging. The scarf, or mantelet, should be edged all around with French lace, pleated on quite full; and from these tiny wraps the size increases, until real mantles are seen. They, however look hot and cumbersome for these midsum monr days, and are mentioned only to show what is surely coming for autumn wear. Grenadine costumes are made lovely, this season, owing chiefly to the styles being neat and not over-fussy,and to the quantities of French lace and loops of ribbon that trim them. The notion has exploded that the silk lining must first be covered with grena dine, and then trimming put upon that. Now the grenadine is mounted on the silk skirt in pleatings and puffs for a heading at the bottom, and if this puff is cut bias, and each edge finished with a narrow piping of silk, then gauged so w that each edge forms a tiny ruffle, it is a much neater fliish. The back is usually in a long, square skirt, finished across the bottom with fine knife-pleating, and then gracefully looped up6n the skirt. Bows and ends of narrow ribbon catch the looping, carelessly, at points. On the front side gores and front, the gren adine can be put on diagonally, either shirred or in folds, to simu late pleats, and two or three rows of French lace can be pleated upon it to form double or triple tabliers. Or the side gores can be trimmed one with a plain rever of grenadine, with a long point at the left, and this edged with loops of ribbon, and a cascade of lace, with loops of ribbon, falling beneath and among them; and the other gore alternate rows of pleatings of grenadin and pleated lace. The front width is usually made into points, edged with lace similar to the one described last week. The costumes of the little folks this season run to flounces. Even their per cale dresses may be made with kiltqd skirts, while there are two tiny flounces oh the bottom, edged with torchon, and the upper one is finished with a torchon heading. Percale, marseilles and linen are usually finished with deep flounces of needlework, and as these are easily laundried, they prove the favorite dress up costume for the little folks. And there are gray linen blouses this season, for both boys and girls, that are the coolest things imaginable. They are made perfectly loose from the yoke, with a belt that confines them at the waist, it wished for. The yoke, bottom of skirt, sleeves and belt, are all em broidered, by machine, in red and black. Two dollars is all that is asked for these convenient every day dresses for the children. The latest wrapper is made in Breton style-that is, has a square over-front, and is strapped across the back. We do not think it as pretty or stylish as the Marguerite. Chemisettes are largely worn ; but we predict that a few days more of excru idating weather will cause ladies to throw them aside and adopt full ruch ings instead. It is said there is a new corset made for bathing. It is water-proof, fully boned, and thickly pierced with eyelets, W'onder if it acts as a sort .of life-pre server, while giving the wearer a grace ful form in the water? There are also bathing shoes, with metal soles, full of eyelets. Abroad, just now, green is the rage, and in every shade ever thought of. The, newest of all is cooked sorrel. Our lady readers in the country can easily learn what this is, as they have ample means at hand to experiment Flowers are each day bedol&ing more of favorites in the way of trimming. Even parasols for all joyous gatherings are ornamented with bouquets of flowers. Flowers are used to loop and orna ment evening dresses in every conceiv able way. Ivory-white barege or grenadine is just now the favorite over-dress for evening wear, and it is usually worn over the same shade in taffeta silk. Nearly all ladies have two bodices made for costumes of this kind-one hligh for dinner, the other low for even ing costume. This color blends beautifully with ruby, carnation, pale blue and pink, so that a judicious mingling of colors makes ivory-white a favorite color for both blonde and brunette. Ladies who crimp their hair over a slate pencil will be pleased to know there are now polished slate-crimpers, with rosewood handles, so we may hope the day of seared fingers and blistered noses, by the use of a pencil that will get hot at both ends, is done away with. _On the other side, they are putting pleats n dress-skrts at the top in front. Wonder if this is a forerunner of the coming of full skirts? We hope not for the skirt of to-day, since the eel-skin style has been aba, doned for a graceful, flowing-back dra pery, is the loveliest in shape that we have ever had. New linen ulsters are made with kilt Ing in the back from the waist, and the side back is rounded to form capes over the arm. These are the most graceful traveling cloaks extant. A new mirror called the Triplicate is an ingenious affair, and one that every woman will hail with delight. When folded, it looks like a handsome port folio with covers of Chinese lacquer; in bamboo frame. Open and hanging, it is three mirrors, so that a lady can see her face, back and side view, at one and the same time. Dear ladly readers, you who know all the vexation attending the back hair, is not this glorious-the knowledge that you can take it all in, and know just how that coiffure looks to other people, and whether your hat is really as be coming at the back as front ? Oh, these are days of improvementI and none the least are the many little inventions to keep wrinkles from the lovely brow of woman. Au revoir! BLANOHE. OUa BOOK TABLE. SPEECHES OF ELIJAH WARD. Cloth; pp. 820. New York: G. W. Carleton & Co. New Or leans: Geo. Ellis. This is a collection of the speeches of the Hon. Elijah Ward on commercial, financial and other subjects that are chiefly valuable because they discuss measures of immediate and practical im portance that yet remain unaccomplished. Mr. Ward is a good Democrat, and his views are more or less familiar to all of our readers. SEEMAN's CLASSICAL MYTHOLOGY. From the Uerman of O. Seeman. Edited by G. H. Blanchi, oloth,epp. 811. New York: Harper & Brothers. New Orleans, Geo. Ellis. This is s small class book of Greek and Roman mythology, prepared with special reference to teaching Its use in art. The works of art in every parlor and pubho place, require a certain fa miliarity with classioal mythology for their appre ciation, and that this little book supplies in the shape of pleasant reading, illustratted with outs after some of the master pieces of ancient sculp ture. It is reliable and accurate. THE AMEHICAN SENATOR. A novel. By Anthony Trollope. Paper; pp. 190. Price fifty cents. New York: Harper Brothers. New Orleans: George Ellis. The title of this novel is a misnomer. The American Senator--"Elias Gotobed, Esq., Sena tor from the State of Mikewa to the Congress of the United States" (:) plays a rather insignificant and somewhat ridiculous role, which seems to have been interpolated into the story without rhyme or reason. The Senator is, at irregular intervals, thrust forward as a censor of British slavish adherence to traditional cus toms which shock enlightened reason, and is made to vent his views in a very ill-bred and offensive manner. Beyond this, he has little to do with the story, which is an or dinary tale of English life, the most interesting feature of which is the desperate struggle for a desirable husband on the part of Miss Arabella Trefoil. This character and the foil to it, Miss Mary Masters, a gentle, straight-forward, earn eat, loveable girl, are very well drawn. The book is quite entertaining, as are all of Mr. Ti ol-. lbpe's stories, and the interest of the reader in the fortunes of the various characters is sus tained to the last. ART EDUCATION APPLIED TO INDUSTRY. By George Ward Nicholls. Uloth, pp. 211. New York: Harper & Brothers. New Orleans: George Ellis. "The object of this book,' says the author, in the preface, "is to show the need of art educa. tion in the United States; to relate something of its history in Europe; to explain what is meant by its application to industry, and to propose a method of instruction best adapted to our peo ple and institutions." This object the author has carried out with great thoroughness and ability, and, in the artis tic elegacce with which his work has been given to the pub ic, his publishers have rendered him a most valuable, and, in lact, an indispeneab!e seevice. The mechanical pait of the work is ex tremely beautiful, and does full justice to the subject treated, both in general aspearanee and in the beauty of the numerous illustrations. The term "art education" is most often used in its restricted sense, or in its relation soll,.l to the fine arts of sculpture, painting and architec ture. But out author here treats of it in its largest sense, as the application of artistio and scientile instruction to common trades and oc cupations, as well as the fine arts. He tries to inspire us with a true appreciation of the beauties of the old wonders of Limogee. The treasures of the Hotel de Clury at d the worksof such artists so Uberti, Michael Rangabe, Lucca Della Robbia, John of Bologna, men whose names are all unknown even to our American lovers of art. He teaches us, too, that the edu cated sense of the beautiful is not the exclusive property of one class, but it may be possessed and enjoyed by all. The book iq full of valuable and curious information as well as valuable sug gestions. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. CORRESPONDENCE. HEADQUARTERS COMPANY A, Continental Guards. New Orleans, July 9, 1877.
