MONDAY EVENING, DEC. 6, I88O.
A Variety Mnuwiuan'8 Levely Wife Utilized
ler an Example.
A Change Foreshadowed In the Location of
" Clara Bellc'j New Voik Letter te Cincinnati
The fashionable belle leeks just new as
tbeuyh she were running away from their
hair. This clTect is caused by carryins
th(i hair back from the temples and ar
ranging it in rich plaits behind, and by
wearing the small new bonnets en the rear
efthe head. This style will de very well
for a pretty face, but it is a sere tiial te
big noses, for it throws them into unwont
ed pi emiueiice. Friz and Huff are neces
sary te telieve big, irregular features.
Only pretty women can trfferd te affect
sweet simplicity. As geed an illustration
of the latter seit as I knew of is the wife
of Teny Paster, the comic vocalist and va
riety show manager. She has the face of
Marjmeiite and Madenna se
lefined and sweei the kind of
lace that women fall iu love with. Stories
of her amiability and charity have fre
quently get into print, and I used te re
gard her as littless less than an angel in
human petticoats. Therefore I was
shocked beyond expression when I saw
her come out at the side deer of a Sisth Sisth
avenue barroom one evening with a
pitchci of beer under her cloak. I am net
saying anything derogatory about Mrs.
Pastei, mind you, for it has beceme
quite the proper thing in Jfew Yerk for
women te di ink beer, if net te go after it
with a pitcher. But I had set the pretty
ctcatare se high en the pedestal that beer
was wholly incompatible with her dainty
.stomach. By-thc-by, she dresses with a
gicat deal of taste and cost, particularly at
the opera, vhcie .she is asdemureand
smooth as a duck. On Monday night she
weic a ce&tuma that illustrated several
new points of fashion. Her wrap was
made of Hindoe casliracie, gathered at the
sheuldcts, lined with white satin and trim
med with chenille fringe. Her dress was
a long princess rebe of pale blue velvet,
made perfectly plain, and fastened at the
back with a lacing of the same color. The
sleeves had two large puffs from the
shoulder te the elbow, aud thence te the
wrists they wcic quite tight, and fastened
en the outside efthe aim with chased sil
ver buttons. Rich lace about three inches
wide was turned back plain en the sleeve
fiem the wrist, and tvhigh plaited ruche
of the same lace was added at the neck.
It is hardly uccessaty te add that a dress
of this description must fit faultlessly, aud
only leeks well en a thoroughly geed
figuie. T saw her lately less richly, but
very becomingly, dicssedat her husband's
thcatie. Her dtcss was of claict handker
chicfS with beideis of dotted yellow.
With this she weic a claict colored jersey,
made te open ever a waistcoat at the
breast, whcie it was turned back with
1 evens of yellow silk, the cuffs being trim
med with a similar lining.Thcwaistceat was
of yellow lace, with a ruillc of the same
around thcthieat. Such jerseys are newer
tliuu these which button at the back, and
far 1 nole convenient than these which
dtag ever the head ; and with cither lace
or plaited waistcoats te match the dress,
aie vciy pretty. On her head was a close
fitting bonnet of claret plush, with strings
of the same, aud feathers te match, fasten
ed by cut-steel breeches. On her hands
were the latest things in kid cloves, cut off
te expose the iingcis, like mitts, and hav
ing bands of geld braid at the wrists te
Mumlatc bangles. She sat decorously in a
a pi ivatc box, looking like nothing short
of a princess. 1 hen her spouse, fat and
jelly, with the air of his former employ
ment as a ciicus clown still adhering, trot
ted out and delighted the gallery with
"Lih-da-dah," "He Leeks Mera Like
His Dad "Every Day,'' and ether jlryens
doggerel. Was there any disdain iu
quiet smile of the princess ? I guess net ;
ler it was fifteen minutes of such work
eray evening that led her te fashionable
Theic arc cheap goods in market this
season, notwithstanding I devote se much
of my descriptions te the costly
wendeis iu the way of elaborate dress..
Never was theie a time when women who
wished te economize, aud at the same
time diess with taste, were mere favored
than at picsent. In addition te the fact
that all the cashmere, wool armurcs, mo me
inic cloths, and camel's hair of last winter
arc much reduced in pi ice, silks arc cheap
er, tee. Satin de Lyens, a very fashion
able fabiic, is brought out iu grades of ex
cellent quality, fiem $1.G0 te $1.75 a yard.
These goods combine admirably with silk
and wool novelty goods, which can be
bought for 81.50 te 82 and is double
width. Then there are ready made suits,
silk and wool, at $10 te $23, according te
quality. Fer $20 te $23 a handsome, sub
stantial and dressy dolman visite can be
had of diagonal or corded cloth, trimmed
with silk velvet or plash, chenille and silk
fiinge, passementerie and satin cords,
lich buttons and satin facings. In bonnets,
tee, a woman can economize, and still get
tasteful, fashionable headgear. Pietty
felt, satin and velvets bonnets, trim
med in new styles, cau be bought
at piices ranging from $3 te $10, and they
are net cheap-looking, cither. The larger
shapes, it must be borne in mind, are mere
expensive, mainly en account of the sup
posed necessity of putting meie elaborate
trimmings en Ihcin. Many fashionable
women, however, wear large bonnets and
hats with no ether trimming than a scarf
of Surrah silk and tassels in case it is trim
med as a hat, or nothing but a big bow in
front, and scarf strings tying it down, if
worn as a bonnet Styles, it must be re
membcrcil, vary fiem week te week in
New Yerk, bein,i affected constantly by
impoitatiens from Londen, Bcilin, and
i'atis, and novelties arc shown daily
What I hint at in this letter may be su
perseded before I write again by things
mere attractive, or less. Still, the econ
omical woman need never fear that she
cannot di ess fashionably without iunning
into extravagances. Let her be content
with that. Going down Broadway en a
fair afternoon, wlicn the sidewalks were
crowded by women. I found by the test of
observation that, after all, the most richly
dressed women were really no mere at
tractive than these who were clothed at
moderate cost. Fer instance, one of the
nicest and most truly stylish girls I saw
were a walking costume of mottled mumie
cloth that could net have cost mere than
$10 icady made. The front of the skirt
had two draperies, each shirred at the
sides. The back of the skirt was draped
full, aud finished with several rows of
stitching. The basque was in pos
ition style, slightly cut away in
front, and finished with three rows
of stitching entirely around the bot
tom. The colors were dark green and
geld. Anether neat and cheap walking
cestume was of small figured dress goods
in combination with satin. The skirt was
trimmed all round with a double flounce of
the dress material, laid in knife plaits.
The drapery, of the skirt was full in the
back, and trimmed with pointed pieces of
satin at equal distances. The basque was
made long and clese-luting, with a double
box plaiting in the centre of the back, and
the side backs draped. The trimming of
the front was of satin laid in surplice
plaits. The next that caught my eye by
its becomingness te a brunette was a dark
garnet costume in handkerchief plaid, made
in princess style. These plaids are among
the latest novelties in dress goods, and
premise te become the favorites of
the season. The outer borders of
the handkerchief squares arc made in
large piaias, anu thus tnc entire dress is
composed of striking alterations both up
and across the goods. A pretty walking cos
tume of serge, costing probably $12 or $14
made up, was trimmed with satin, with
fancy buttons and bows, and was navy
blue in color. It is a consolation for these
of our sex who can't buy the costliest
dresses te knew that men, for whom wc
principally array ourselves, are seldom ex
pert judges of textile quality, and are only
affected by the general effect. The drift
of fashion is favorable, tee, for these who
have sufficient cleverness te turn every
thing te the best account. Elegance
seems really te have reached the summit
of refinement and geed taste. Our
women as a rule have the grace and finish
that constitute the perfect lady."- Fashion
is net se rigorous as in former times. Wc
have a sort of elect ism which gives us the
opportunity te carry out our own ideas 111
dress. Pretty women, paiticularly, can
make themselves by their toilets full of
mysterious charm. Certain outlines of
fashion must be adhered te, but the varie
ties of style are ceuutle&s, aud every one
can turn them te her especial account. Wc
are saved by this means from a wearisome
uniformity and sameness. Yeu meet a
woman with just a strip of bonnet en the
back of her head, and then 0:1c with a
colossal fur beaver hat spicading wide
ever her ears; yet both arc iu fashion.
The privilege of variety is, of com se, oc
casionally abused, and sad caiicatnrcs
are tee often seen en Broadway. The
secret of a Parisian's taste in dress is in
its harmony. Frem head te feet she is
daintily, but appropriately attired. Ec
centricities arc avoided by Paris women,
rich and peer. De you ask mc why, then,
se many of the costumes impeited fiem

Yeung women with tall, slight iiguics

dresses with short, full bodices, gathcicd
in at the waist with a band ; the skirt
short and bordered with a gathcicd flounce

The distinguishing feature of business

Speaking of corsages, the public stands
a chance ferhc first time in many years
of seen seeing the tops of women's shoul sheul
dei s. The present tiny sleeves, or absence
of sleeves, display the least pretty part of
the arm, and hide the points of real beauty.
There arc indications of a return te the
corsages of twenty-five years age, when
they were cut straight across the breast
and arms. The last bridal dress worn at
St. Themas's church, in Fifth avenue,
was boldly cut in this long obsolete style.
The toilet was composed of plain and bro
caded white satin, with tiimmings of
Duchcssc point lace, and was exquisite in
taste and quality. The bride had a plump,
but girlish, figure, and could expose a
great deal of beautiful bieast without
being guilty of indeccut cxpesutc. The
dress was square aciesr. the top, and that
top was barely abe-c the level of her arm

years of square and oblong openings at

Getting Back te Pure Democracy.
If the Democrats would win the nevt
presidsnttal election they must instruct
the people in the true principles of politi
cal economy. The great mass of the
youth of our land knew little or nothing
of Iho fundamental principles which uu
derlie our system of government ; and,
indeed there arc many old heads who hae
but very crude notions of the ground
work en which our political structure
Few, comparatively, of the veterc of
te-day are fully conversant with the h-
sues involved in the bitter contest between
Hamilton and Jeffersen, in the threes of
which struggle the Democratic party was
bem. Few there are te-day who knew
hew and why the views held and promul
gated by Themas Jeffersen triumphed
ever the " strong government " ideas ad
vanced by the Federalists of old. The
election et uarhelu revives these old is
sues and they must be fearlessly met.
Had there been any millionaires in this
country iu that day as in this, the states
and state governments would have been
trampled under feet and have had no rights
a centralized power at Washington would
have considered itself bound te respect.
The wealthy few of that day held the
doctrine that it was the duty of govern
ment te take care efthe rich and the rich
would take care of the peer : that all pe
litical power should be centered in the
president and Congress ; that te establish
a "strong government' the states must be
shot n of their sovereignty aud their indi
viduality merged in the federal govern
ment. Under the elder Adams a vigorous
Stint was made te enforce these ideas, but
Themas Jeffersen antagonized them, boldly
declared that all power was inherent in the
people and upon that bread platform was
elected te succeed Jehn Adams. The rich
wcic in that day tee few in number te

monopolies were as yet unknown in this
Pine disintcjested patriotism gave us a
fei m of government under which for mere
than half a century wchad a wonderful
growth and great prosperity. Foreign
nations steed amazed at our rapid develop
ment and looked with cuvieus eyes upon a
people whose central government levied no
ta" upon the labor of the land.
The people of the states, premising te
keep geed faith with each ether, had or
dained and adopted a constitution, iu
which was wi ittcn and clearly defined the
pewcis which -should be exercised by the
general government. AH ether rights,
pewcis and privileges were reserved te
thenuelves and te the state governments.
Adherence te this compact, in its letter
and spit it, weKftl have prevented trouble
and dissension, and internecine strife
could never have come between the states.
The weid "Natien" was net even men
tioned in this constitution and the dream
of a great Amciican empire had a lodg
ment 111 the brain of only a few monarchists
who had advocated the medeliug of our
f 01 m of government after the British sys
tem. The history of the troubles and trials
out of which was evolved this constitution
would te-day be new te some of the Re
publican slump orators who take se much
pTeasme .i denouncing the old party that
still tenaciously clings te these sound po
litical doctrines, the acccptance of which
made it possible te form a union of states
and without which there would have been
no constitution and no union.
Up te the advent of the party that new
opposes the piinciplcs of Jeffersen, the old
constitution commanded the profound re
spect of a great majority of the American
people and it caused them deep sorrow te
see Tliad. Stevens applauded for denounc
ing it in the halls of Congress. Up te that
time il was regarded as a sacred thing and
was veveienccdasthc ark of the political
covenant between the sovereign states.
Leve for it te-day is denounced as Bour Beur Bour
benisni. As we have said, tee little is known by
the lising generation of the caily political
history of our country and steps should be
taken te instruct the youth of our land in
the ptinciplcs essentially necessary te per
petuate a government efthe people, and
for the people. They should knew the
orbit in which the states move, what the
lights they surrendered te the general
government,and the object and purpose of
that surrender of power no one then dis
puted their absolute right te exercise.
They should also knew what rights the
states reserved te themselves, what the
powers of the general government, and
what the 1 est rict ions and limitations en
joined by the constitution.
That the youth of our country may be
prepctry instructed in these matters mat
ters new of vital importance if we would
