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 ornament. 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 expense. 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 bonnet. A very beautiful Italian straw is trimmed with a fall of green feather*.- * fringe at the back, and lovely trans? parent sl?a*v ornament-;. Chain* 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 canvas. 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 <:. nue. nu 1 furtn.s a ve:y good apology o- a cintaiu. Bonnets both with and ?. : . . J cr 'Wu-:, ?ire made up in this s;; e . ly! st??ws, trimmed with ..;i> ou .o m-it^ii, aie clso in high favor. 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 hats. 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 very pretty. 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 green has .-.Isp been introduced in a few ribbons aud feather ornauienLs fol round hats. Tbs new color known as "moon or. the lake," we think a very poetical but inappropriate title. It is a very I rich, lovely shade ot pearl color, and 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 square buttons of mother-of-pearl, cry ' tal, or a material resembling wht j onyx, with a bar of gold or jet acre them, or else having a small gilt oro ! oeut io the centre, ate --.Iso among tl nowfcbt. Other novel styles ure of jet or pearl, strapped aeross with narrow bands of bright, colored braid, or else have a mosaic figure in the centre. Tho ornaments are generally on the shoulders and up the back, in a pyra<? rnidal form. Steel id very rftuch wora OU dresses, and though worn in Paris on wraps, dues uot take well herc. Tito combination of jet and silk is generally preferred, as? it is rich aad loss con? spicuous than sloe!. 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- ! mino'. 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 feather trimming. 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 Philadelphia. 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. [Godey's Lady s Book, for June 'When a stranger treats me with want of respect,' said a philosophic poor man, 'I comfort myself with tho reflection that it is not myseif that he slights, but my old shabby coat and hat, which, to say the truth, have no particular claim to admiration. So if my hat and coat choose to fret about it, let them, but it is notbiog lo rae.' f Keep him at least three paces dis taut who batos music uud the laugh oi a child. HOME DIFFICULTIES.-Tho house- ] mother has her difficulties, aye, be she | ever so gifted with that bleared quality j of tabing them lightly and cheerfully. ? It is noe pleasant for \a?y ladies to get breakfast over at that 'regular early hour which alone sets a household fairly agoing for tho day-; nor for un? arithmetica! ladies, who liave always recko?ed their accounts by sixpences, to put down each item, and persevere in balancing periodically receipts and expenditures; uor for weakly, nervous, self engrossed ladies to rouse thc mselves sufficiently to put their house itt order, and keep it so, not by occasional spas? modic 'setting to rights,' but by a Ceneral methodical overlooking of all that is going on therein. Yet, unless ail this is done, it is vain to insist on early rising, ov grumble about wast-e, or lecture Upon neatness, cleanliness, and order. The seiVattts get to leam that 'Missis is never in time!' and laugh at her Complaints of their un? punctuality. They see uo use in good management or avoidance of waste: 'Missis never knows about anything.' She may lecture til* she is weary about neatness and cleanliness: 'Just put your head into her room" ?nd see!' For all moral qualities, good temper, truth, kindliness, and above al!, con? scientiousness,- if these are deficient in tho unstress, it is idle to expect them from servants, or children, or auv members of the family circle." [Woman's Thoughts about Women. WINKS.-"Men who preferred port wine to claret, as the English in Queen Anne's time, could have had no souls worth speaking of. See how our literature fell off. The Elizabethans quaffed Sack, or 'Gascoyne or Rochelle wyn,' and we had tho intellectual giants of those davs. The Charles II comedy writers worked on claret. Port then came into fashion; port sapped our brains; and instead of Wyeherlv's 'Country Wife' and Vanburgfs 'Re kipse,' we had Mr. Morton's 'Wild Oats* and Mr. Cherry's 'Soldier's Daugh'er/ The best French winos are grown in the wild and savage country of the Medoc, in the South west of France, in tho neighborhood of lb>rbeaurg, and along thc course of thu Garonne. The principal are, St. Julienne, Lee? ville, Chateau la Lafitte, Chateau de Rose and Chateau de Marguax. These are cultivated on tho high road be? tween liiirdeaux and Panillas. The Rhone wines are hot ano fiery; those of Italy and the Levact are sweet aud mild. Cette, a town on the Mediterranean, is famous fur its adulteration of good and fabrication of bad wines. Fort, Sherry and Madeira aro fabricated in abundance from any cheap wine mixed with brandy. To the grateful Yan? kees, Cette annually sends thousands of tout of Ay and Moet; besides no end of Johanisburg, Hermitage and Chateau Mayaux." [Roche's *Claret and Olives.' On Monday, .rune 14th, 'the mort? gage deed for tho sale of a house in l(il3, bearing lira autograph signature of Shaksp.-are, the most clearly writ? ten specimen known,' was sold at auction in London. Tbi< is said, iu ihb'lllustrated London 2Vei*n, ut tht 5th, to he 'the only autograph of Shakspeare in private hands, and thc ouly one which money is ever likelj to buy. Only five unmistakable auto graphs of Shakspeare are known, (for wej do not believe even the Florie in the British Muslin,) viz: the three signatures to his will on three sheets the sigiiKtures to the deed in the Guildhall Library, and this, ol- tht Garrick autograph, now offered to tin greatest admirer with the longes purse. The Guildhall Library docu ment is the counterpart of the convev ance of a house in Ireland-yard, no?n to the Blackfriars Theatre, whicl Shakspeare bought in 1C12, and be queathed by will to his daughter Susanna Hall. It is genuine bey om dispute.' There is a farmer in Yorkshire win hits a mile aral a half children. Hi name is Furlong, and he has four boy and eight giris. Eight furlongs mah a mile.

I \ A TOUCHING INCIDENT.-Somo gentle-rrieu passing through the beauti? ful village of Henton, in the valo of Leven, ?umb?Ttonshite, about, nine o'clock at night, a few days ago, had their attention directed lo a dark object in the cb'urch-yard. On going to ascertain what it was, they found H boy, of tender years, lying Ant on his fa?je, and apparently Bound asleep, over a newly made grave. Thinking this not a very safe bc d fer him, they shook him up and auked him how he came to be there? He said he was afraid to go homo, as his sister, with whom he resided, had threatened to bear, birr.. 'And where does your sister live?' asked one of the party. *In Dum? barton/ was the answer. 'Tu Dum? battot?-nearly four miles off, and how came you to wander so far away fi om horne?' SI just cam','sobbed the poor liHlo fellow, 'because Div mither's grave was here.' His mother bad been buried there a short time before, and his seeking a refuge at her grave in his sorrow, was a beautiful touch of nature in a child who could scarcely have yet learned to realizo the true character of that separation which knows of no reunion on earth. Thither had he in? stinctively wandered, to sob out bia sorrows, an ! to moisten with tears th?i grave of one who bad hitherto been his nal ural protector, for he had evi? dently cried himself to sleep. [North British Mail. Lord Lyndhurst tells a good story apropos of the surrender of the gi eat seul of the English ministry in 184G. '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 was looking for my carriage at tho outer door, a lackey bustled np, and, with a patronizing air, said, 'Lord Lyndhurst, can I do anything for you?'
