the church. Present Aspect of the Cele brated Cheney Case. Some New and Important Developments. Ibe Eev. Dr. E. W. Patterson on “Our Indian Policy.” Interesting: Extracts from the Religious Press. Programme of Services in the . Churches Tp-Day. Episcopal and Homan Catliolic Calendars for tlie "Week. A Variety of Interesting Religions Beading Matter. The Cheney matter has recently com© again to the surface under, circumstances of more than ordinary interest. In May, 1872, Messrs. Calk ins, Jameson, and Cleaveland, who owned pews or parts of pews in Christ Church, filed a bill m chancery against the Eev. Dr. Cheney and hia wardens and vestrymen, praying an injunction against the further ministrations of the former In that church, because, as they alleged, Dr. Cheney been ' deposed “ from the ministry of the Church of God.** The defendants filed answers,"denying, among other things, the le gality of the alleged deposition. Upon the issue raised on branch of tho case, the proceed ings of the ecclesiastical tribunals are liable to be reviewed by the civil courts.for the purpose of ascertaining whether there was ever any ec clesiastical tribunal at all, and, if so, whether it bad jurisdiction of the subject matter and of the person. The complainants* counsel proposed to eat off this branch of the investigation, by es tablishing the proposition that, in the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States, a Bishop possesses tho power, inherent in his office, of de posing and suspending his presbyters, and that therefore no matter whether Dr. Cheney had been canonically tried or not, nay, even if. he had not been tried at all, the validity of the sen tence could not be inquired into by the civil court. On the other hand, defendants* counsel Insists that if a presbyter has had no trial, or if it transpires that the reverend gentlemen who undertake to try him, do not constitute a court, which is equivalent to no trial at all, the proceed ing is wholly void, and so is any sentence based thoreon. Upon the question of inherent author ity, the complainants have already adduced much testimony, and the defendants expect to do the same. Bishop ‘Wbitehouse testifies strongly in favor of the possession by Bishops of power jure divine to bind and loose—to depose and bus? pend; and with him, the Bev. Bamuel Chase, D. D., substantially concurs. As the Bishop set the prosecution in motion, and Dr. Chase was one of the presbyters who insisted on acting as a court, after one of the panel of five originally selected on behalf of the accused failed to appear, the complainants naturally sought additional evi dence, and have taken the depositions of Bishop 'Whittingham, Bishop Odenheimtr, the Hon. Hurray Hoffman, Dr. Fulton, Dr. Seymour, and the Bev. John Heniy Hopkins, Jr. (better known as the “ perpetual curate ”), who was for some years editor of tho Church Journal* Of these witnesses, Bishop Whittingham de clines to answer the questions, on the ground of failure of memory and the mental strain which he would be necessarily subjected to; Judge •ffnfFrnun declares the sentence of a Bishop, pro nounced upon a presbyter who had not upon trial been found guilty of any offence, would be absolutely void, but Hopkins is confident that whatever a Bishop does is decisive, whether canonical or not. Bishop Odenheimor, upon cross-examination, states that the Church of * England, In tho colonies of Great zwituui n&vuig »' coimncunonai Government, is situated substantially as the Episcopal Church in this country, and where in such colonies it is not attempted by tho letters patent appointing a Bishop to impart coercive jurisdiction, snob Bishop has the same authority as a Bishop in the United States, and the latter no more than the former. Judge Hoffman eays he has not examined the subject sufficiently to form or state an opinion. John Henry Hopkme insists that it ia no matter bow that is. The importance of this point to the defendants is obvious. A long series of decisions baa • set tled the law, so far as the Church of England is concerned, that a Bishop cannot exercise coer cive jurisdiction except as empowered bo to do by the laws of the State, or the agreement of the parties; that in suen respects ne does not act iniaie officii. A sentence of suspension or deposition cannot therefore be inflicted except in accordance with the provisions of the law or the agreement, and that in all cases the presby ter must receive a legal or canonical trial Among the questions propounded by Mr. Fuller .in cross-examination of Bishop White house and Judge Hoffman, was one as to the effect it would have upon a sentence of deposi tion unlawfully pronounced upon a presbyter if a Bishop were himaftlf deposed for pronouncing such a sentence. Ur. Whitehouse insists that the sentence upon the presbyter would remain unchanged, while Judge Hoffman testifies that the sentence upon the Bishop would operate as a remission or vacation of the other sentence. The investigation is calculated to thoroughly clear up and define tho status of the Protestant Episcopal Church in this country. The com plainant's witnesses generally admit a serious difference of opinion in tne Church upon the subject of the powers of the Episcopate, and the depositions show there is such difference in opinion between the witnesses themselves. The defendants have taken no evidence as yet, but they believe they can prove that the coercive jurisdiction exercised by Bishops does not flow from the power of order, bnt is de rived from grant by State or canon law or consent of parties, and must be exercised accordingly, and that the sentence of a Bishop not pronounced according to the prescriptions of tho governing canons is utterly void. They propose to take the testimony of a vast body of divines and learned men to establish this. - The original controversy involves the question of the doctrine of the Church upon the vexed whject of baptismal Tegeneration. The offense for which the Bev. Dr. Cheney was first under iisciplin© was the alleged omission of the word regenerate ” from the positive declaration in the smce of infant baptism that the child is, by the Performance of the rite,* made “regenerate. 1 * That it la thereby “grafted into the body of l/farists Church,” all admit, and Dr. Cheney so pronounces in the administration of the sacra ment, hut he dislikes to positively affirm, as if it were dogmatically declared and “not to be doubted, that regeneration has actually taken ♦w ß, . The defendants seem to concede if the positive declaration in * ques tion is to be taken as declaratory of doo tnne, then Dr. Cheney committed an offense, PJJ* “ri ia not to be so taken, then what he neg ated to do is not in itself presentable, as the J®iy words of the services are never always used, tnd usage permits the clergy to modify or omit m very many cases. •Hie suit now pending involves fundamentally question °f deviation. Can it be contended jojtthe pariah of Const Church is deviating.

The complainants come into court as new own era. At the time the bill was filed one .of them had not been in the church edifice for years, another had long before rented hia pew, and the third was high in office in another pariah, and refused to sell hia pew in this one, though offered its cost and interest, 1 The Buffer ings of these complainants, in view of the Rev. Dr. Ohenoy*s ministrations,, must have been of an exceedingly severe character. They are certainly likely to be protracted. They have never sought relief in any . of the meetings of the parish of Christ Church. On the contrary, the wardens and vestrymen have been, by a unanimous vote, di rected to employ Dr, Cheney. The query is again inevitable, whether the usafnictory right of a pew-owner gives him a standing in a. court of equity to enjoin an entire congregation from listening to the clergyman of their choice, such pow-owner never having objected by voice or vote to such action on their part. The defend ants must necessarily obey the corporation of which they are officers, and it is for any “ share holder” in the enterprise to object at the proper time and place before ho comes into court to complain. The case having been set for a hear ing on the 2d of Juno, Mr. Fuller, of counsel for the defendants, applied for further time, and filed an affidavit in support of his application, m .which he set forth the vast range of inquiry opened up by the complainants,’and the fact that his time had been substantially occupied in dancing attendance on the getting in of the com plainants* proof. This statement was very long, and wound up with the assertion that tho de ponent had not elaborated to any further extent for want of time. As it was. we should think it would fill, if printed, about two columns of this paper. __ Ur. Judd urgently resisted the motion. Ho intimated that it was essential to the peace of the Church that the controversy should come to an end. Ho insisted that the affidavit was insuffi cient. Chief Justice Williams thought the statement made out good grounds for an extension of time. Counsel for defendants had shown reasonable diligence. The case had passed into a wide, and to him unexpected, field of litigation. Tho cause was wormy of careful preparation and consideration. The Court (Judge Williams being a rigid disciplinarian of tho orthodox typo, bad been ruling against tho defendant up to this time) bad not heretofore fully understood the scope of the case, and had supposed tho issue an exceed ingly narrow one, but it seemed from tho action of tho complainants that this was not so. Tho importance to the Church of a speedy decision was not as groat as that such decision should he correct in itself whenever arrived at. It was then suggested that perhaps counsel might agree to a stipulation embodying what tho defendants expected to prove by their witnesses, and tho matter stood over to the 9th instant, when Hr. Fuller appeared with twenty closely written pages of foolscap, which he said was about half the stipulation he desired Hr. Judd to sign. To Mi?a request the latter gentleman found bimself unable to accede, and the case accordingly went over to the first Monday in October. The urgency of the complainants just at this partic ular juncture arose from the foot that tho Supreme. Court meets but once a year in M>* H division, and that in September. If, therefore, this case is decided in favor of the defendants, another year must roll round before the matter can be heard in the highest tribunal, and probably eighteen months before a decision is reached. If the complainants win, and the defendants appeal, the Rev. Dr. Cheney will still continue to officiate for at least that pe riod of time, and the pangs of the complainants remain unassuagod. Upon the whole, the result is rather evenly balanced, both sides being thoroughly confident of success. It is impossible at this stage to pre dict the outcome of the struggle, but it begins to be now evident that the counsel for the Bev. Dr. Cheney have more solid legal ground to stand on than has been generally suspected. It Is entirely clear that if the reverend gentle man has never been lawfully tried, that is to say, by any ecclesiastical court, canonical ly constituted, this case is at an end. It should also bo remembered that none of the questions now raised were passed upon by the Supreme Court in the former case, or, if at all, not in their present shape. Nor has Judge Williams as yet-adjudicated upon them,—counsel for defendant having refrained from arguing them upon the demurrer before that gentleman. In fact, the cases are entirely different,and the one now on the carpet may receive an entirely different solution. It is one thing for civil courts to. decline to in terfere with disciplinary proceedings against a clergyman. It is quite another when the courts are called on to decide upon the property rights of third persons, not parties to such alleged ec clesiastical action. Taken in every aspect, this case is perhaps as important in its' bearings as any that has over been brought into court in this country, oun Indian policy. Tho Her. Dr. Patterson, tho former pastor of . -X>*»*l*.D«-.oi.hytArsan GhlirAh, prminnnnoa upon “ Our Indian Policy” to the extentof three long columns in the current number of the In terior. The subject ifi treated in on original and independent manner. He does not impeach either of the two great political parties. Ho tfrinlfß they alike deserve whatever praise or censure belongs to sincere and earnest attempts to raise figs from thistles; to civilize and Chris* tianize savages on heathen principles. Nothing is more remarkable in our public affairs than the exceptional treatment of the Indians. We regard all other men as equal before the law. and command their obedience to the laws, but never dream of beseeching and soliciting the good behavior of the Indian. He says: The best and most virtuous white citizen, the sol dier -who has fought the battles of his country, can only pre-empt two quarter sections (320 acres) of the public domain; but even the red Indian has pre empted for him, by solemn act of Congress, • many thousands of acres in the vast reservations, solemnly declared perpetual. Can any good reason be given why we do not set apart the valley of the Hudson as an Irish reservation, and appoint an Irish bureau, and an Irish agent, and make an annual payment of 10,000 barrels of whisky to our Irish brethren 7 Or, suppose the grand prairie set apart as a perpetual reservation for our German tribes, and an annual tribute of lager beer and tobacco voted them by Congress! Would not equal Justice to John Chinaman require that wo secure his good behavior by setting apart the Santa Clan Valley as a Chinese reser vation, and taxing tho nation for opium, and stale eggs, and tripang so long as -he consented to keep off the war-path 7 Can anybody tell why, after making Jews Gentiles, negroes and Chinese, German and french, and Spanish and Yankees, ah equal before the law, and bidding Congress to secure to all our people a republican form of government, we erect the Indians into a privileged class, and protect their chiefs in in flicting upon them the evils of a most tyrannical oli garchy 7 Or, that we punish polygamy in white or black men, and protect tho Indians in tho practice of the most degrading polygamy and vile abuse of their women? Ho has great respect for William Penn, but none whatever for Quaker principles in a world of sinful men that cannot be governed one year by them. The treaties that purport to recognize and perpetuate rights which never had any ex istence are of no more value than the commis sion of the Governor of Barataria. Ho adds : Bat lotus ask: How did the Indians obtain any such ownership to America 7 Did they make it, or did they- lease it from the Maker 7 The earth ia the Lord's. If the Indians have any title to any part of it, they must show their title-deeds. Now, the only title-deed from Almighty God which any nation can show is the original charter: “Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and sub doe it, and have dominion.'* Occupation and cultiva tion are the only moral title-deeds to land. Americans acknowledge no other. • . • The Indian can claim no other title to any more land than he occupies, and needs for his family, than any other* man. Ho can not sell to others what he never owned nor possessed himself. The so-called Indian title is a gross swindle; and the treaties purporting to convey it to the United States are as worthless as certificates of Arizona dia mond stock. In his fdlnirifm to Indian Communism he says: Bat to the Indians alone we refuse the operation of this primeval law of God, supporting amongst them the very worst form of Communism. Tho Bed Bepub -11 cans of Paris demand that every male shall work eight hours a day before he becomes entitled to a share of the public meals. But our Indian Commun ism makes do such requirement. It places the lazy, drunken loafer on a level with his industrious squaw, and compels the industrious hunter to give him his belly full of the fish or game he has toiled to procure, while the other was drinking and gambling away his children's last blanket. It is monstrous, that such a system of Communism, slavery, polygamy, barbarism, and rapine should be tolerated in a Christian nation, much more that It should be sustained by tribute from a civilized people. Tho article closes with these words, which may be considered the writer’s “ Indian Policy ’ “What, then, would you have us do?” Break up the whole tribal system, disarm the war riors. and compel them, at any cost, to submit to tho laws as other citizens do. Give each of them his homestead, and protect him in the possession of the fruits of his labors from landsbarks and liquor deal ers Establish common: schools, and compel the at tendance of the Indian children. It is much cheaper to school Indians than to shoot them. Wo can school an indian chlid for SI,OOO ; but it costs us over SIO,OOO apiece to shoot them. THE BELIGIOUS PBESS. The -religious press, in Qantrflon this week, condemn in nhin enured terms the massacre of tlid ‘Modoc captives. They also speak of the volcanic eruption of last week, otherwise known as the Jubilee, after the manner of the daiiiM. r The .Adwmce opens with a two-column reply to the interrogation “Is Universalism Evangeli cal? ” stating that it can hardly bo Maimed that usually their spirit and methods accord with. THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: SUNDAY, JUNE 15, 1873. those of evangelical churches, and admitting that there are individuals of Christian character among them, and that the denomination is be yond question raised above that epoch in itAhis tory when the arrival of a Universalist preacher In a village brought to his public services, all the sceptics, topers,bard cues, etc. The spirit of the article is liberal. It opens as follows: A somewhat determined effort is now being made to secure a recognition of Uni verbalism as evangelical. This is owing partly to the growing kindliness of all theologicaldispntants toward each other,' in these day* of free thought and increased charity, and pertly to the desire to relieve individuals from unpleasant difficulties, who hold Universalist Ideas and yet desire orthodox fellowship end association. We have no ob jection to a careful review «f oar Congregational prac tice on point, in the. interest of a broader com munion, provided any reasonable and Scriptural ground can be indicated. The same paper contains a pungent criticism on the union action of the Presbyterian Assem bly at Baltimore, closing as follows: It is not the best way to command the confidence and win the fraternal esteem of the Southern brethren, for the churches at the North to unanimously unsay what a little while ago they unanimously affirmed and probably still believe. The late war is an ugly fact, but it is apart of -history, and any attempts ah re union based on Ignoring instead of accepting it are a mistake. Think of trying to blot out of remembrance Lincoln's immortal address at Gettysburg for the of political concord I The Kew Covenant discusses the Orthodox policy,”in which it is declared that the Orthodox preaching of forty years ago is not exactly the same as that of to-day. He says: We will not say that the liberal preaching of the present day, in the Orthodox churches, is to be at tributed altogether to policy. We doubt not the pop ular faith of the past 6 giving way to the better faith of the present. But that there is with many of the leading clergy a motive of interest, at the bottom of their liberal preaching, we do not doubt. ‘And we firmly beheve that there is a design among them that looks to an ultimate swallowing up of the liberal ele ment, and so blotting out all the organisations that are built on that element. Tho Advocate manfully defends tho Bov. Ed ward Sullivan, Hector of Trinity Church, against the late attacks in the Daily Jubilee. It asks : Who edited, or rather failed to edit, the Daily Jubi lee lasi week? That paper said j “ A certain Episcopal minister of Chicago lately re fused to preach a sermon while a reporter for the Times was present. It is unnecessary to state that that clergyman hod just received a call from the god less Inter-church pedestrian of tho paper in question. It was a desperate attempt upon the part of the wearer of the surplice to obtain a first-dime crown of martyrdom. He expected that by offering this insult direct to a representative of that paper, the contents of seven times seven vials of wrath would be emptied upon him, Ha supposed that be would be raked fore and alt; flayed mentally, and drawn, and quartered morally. But ho fooled himself. The Tima abso lutely refused to accept his cheap hid for immor tality.” It was absolutely mean for file responsible men in that Jubilee to thus mislead the thousands who read the above on their programme sheets. The Bev. Mr. Sullivan turned out of his church a Times reporter be cause that reporter represented a paper that had in sulted all the churches of the city. More, the Times. day after day. did try to flay Mr, Sullivan, and did squirm manifestly under the smarting ana deserved rebuke. The Jubilee programme therefore indorsed the Times antecedent oetftge on public opinion, mis represented Mr. Sullivan’s manly procedure, and falsi fied the facts in the case. The Jubilee managers yet owe reparation to the public for the above paragraph. People who understand only a part of the facts will di vide the responsibility ‘between Henry 1L Smith. Messrs. Carpenter and Sheldon, and Messrs. Lyon and Bealy. Whoso Is the responsible pen ? FATHER DAMIEN’S LECTURE. A large audience assembled in the new St, Mary’s Oathplio Church last Wednesday evening, to hear the Bov. Father Damen*s lecture on “Popular Objections Against the Catholic Church.’* Tho objections occupied the speaker for two hours in delivery, and their publication in tho Western Catholic tills nine columns. The follow ing is an extract: But even in this country, where we enjoy liberty of conscience—-even in this country, the prophecy of the Savior is fulfilled; even here we ore calumniated, we ore slandered, and we ore misrepresented. Even in thin land of freedom—even in this glorious Republic, Tindpr a free Constitution, than which we desire noth ing better—oven here, I say, we are slandered, calumniated, and misrepresented as Catholics. It is, of course, through ignorance. Our Protestant friends do not know any better; for they have been brought up with their own one-sided ideas of the Catholic religion; their reading and their edu cation are against our Holy Faith. Were they only to know the Catholic religion as it is, why the American people—who are on independent people, and a people that love the truth—if, I say, oar American people did only know the Catholic religion as it is—why, my dear friends, they would be In love with It. And in saying, truly, that it Is the most rational religion, the most natural religion, I say it is also a Scrip tural religion; for, my dear people, reason,- nature, tho Bible, and true religion come from God. There can be no contradiction in the works of God. God cannot contradict himself. Hence the true religion must be the religion of reason, the relison of nature, and the religion of the Bible ; for these three things—reason, nature, and the Bible —come from God, as well as the true religion comes from God. Hence there can bo no contradiction in the works of God. There moat be .union, there must be harmony, there must be concord between these things. NOTES. The Christian Union of this week is quite complimentary on Robert Collyor’a newspaper eennon recently delivered in Unity Church and puolißhcd in THE xc says : Robert Collyer, of Chicago (rather lot us say of tho whole United States), lately delivered a discourse on newspapers, as full of wit and wisdom as an egg is of meat.

CHICAGO. ’lf the woman who is to the manner bom is distinguishable from her less favored sister, the difference is nowhere more perceptible than in the fact that she is never astonished, or at least never seems so ; and, being thoroughly posted in the on-dit of coming fashion, is quite prepared for the first sign of its advent; if she is not herself the one to introduce it. Not bo those less favored by fortune. Craning necks; heads looking as if, through some freak of Nature, they had been affixed to the body in a decidedly opposite direction to that ordained in the anginal plan ; even outspoken wonder following the first gape of surprise,—is the manner In which ces autrea gens greet the first individual who dons a new and to them singular fashion. Such has been noticeably the case in this city recently, in respect to a certain proportion of the people who are not prepared to see the HIGH BUFFS A2iD OLOSK-FimSQ SKIBT9, guiltless of pannier, which have obtained in Eastern cities until they are almost becoming.ob solete and yielding to newer innovations. Fash ion-writers tell us of them, but the public in general have not seen them, and the lady who first ventures upon the street thus arrayed at tracts as much attention as a first-class circus. New York has an opportunity to air all her Imported novelties on the promenade, so that the most vulgar eye soon becomes accustomed to the most outre fancies in drees, and the girl gamin who sweeps the crossing not infrequently makes herself an animated caricature of Madame Haut-ton, in her desire to emulate that fastidious lady’s elegant, but novel, attire. Then the Jerome-Park races afford another op portunity for all the world to see the last most costly and recherche importation from “la belle Franco.” Here a seat in the Grand Stand is quits as desirable as a seat at the Grand Opera, and Mamma, with marriageable daughters, seeks it eagerly, in direct ratio to her anxiety for eligible partis lor her fair daughters. Worth toilettes pre dominate, and, if Papa possibly groans as he pays the bills, be consoles himself, or Mamma consoles him, with the hope that some other fel low will do it before long, if Arabella or Ara zninta are only properly brought forward. En route to the Park, in all sorts of vehicles, these fair dames are visible in all their glory to their less-favored fellow-mortals who go a-foot. New Yorkers are not easily astonished; and if, aa the Danbury pi*" remarks, “They like fresh oranges, but soon suck them dry,” it is not of literary matters alone that this is true, but equally so in respect to any new fashion. Miss Exclusive wears the Medici ruff to-day; Miss tJpper-Ten-Thouaand sees and adopts it to-mor row; and, before the end of the week, it has gone down through every grade, losing caste and quality as it falls, until it disappears through the general condemnation of public disgust and satiety. Slowly it creeps from the east ern to the western borders, and she is venturesome indeed who first makes her ap pearance on the street in the long-heralded, but scarcely-recognized novelty. A FEW OF THESE EUFFS have been visible here, bat mostly with evening* dresses; and. these, who have added them to street-costumes are few and far betweeDj—a sort of compromise being made, and the width diminished, or. in some cases, a complete bonle versement is observable, from the fact of the wearers turning these plaited arrangements up side down. The pannier also still holds its own, and the great proportion of the feminine com munity still go humped like a camel. It is use less to say that they are oat of date, for ladies so rarely walk here that, even if they recognize and accept the change, it is not patent to the greatmaas of the feminine community; and, .until one’s eyes grow accustomed to the change through a veritable vision, it is of little use to chronicle it. The autumn will probably find ua quit© differ ently attired, no doubt, from what we are at present, for the traveling community will bring back with them the prevailing costume of the European capitals, and of those cities which lie nearer them on the Atlantic coast. We also hear much of a greater simplicity in dress; but, so far, it is hardly recognizable in prevailing costumes. The greatest innovation is in KOB3IA2TDT CAPS, which are no longer confined to the little ones, bat have also been assumed by their elder sis ters. “ A SSO-bonnet, with a flower-garden on it,’s may answer for Mamma, hut it is by no meane the highest style of art for Mademoiselle. The high-crowned cap, familiar to ns through thy fashionable French nurse, and more recently be its being adopted and elaborated for her' little charges, is now the thing. It is made of simple white Swiss, or organdy, over a silk lining, or the lace frame provided by the milliners; ]ma a band of velvet ribbon around it; a large bow on top; a knot of flowers at the side; and long ends, knotted behind and falling below the waist. It forms the most churning and unique head-dress that has yet appeared, and is an immense relief to the eye that has grown weary of the high steeples, overloaded with trimming, which have so long prevailed. It should be very popular, but its simplicity will make that improbable, as the great proportion of the American people seem to have caught the barbaric bastes of the aborigines, and revel in bright colors and profuse ornament. However, let us hope that the Normandy cap may be a suc cess, for it gives a piquant look to the fair young faces which it adorns. Next, let onr fashionable ladies beware how they lei dress-makers at home CUT UP BIOZZ aiATETUAU*. mtoinnumerable rufllesjplaitinge, puffs, scallops, etc. Thirty or forty yards of auk made into trimmings can never be restored to its pristine state; and, before many months, those who can not afford to throw away a handsome dress be cause it is out of style, will lament the woeful extravagance and lack of taste which has over loaded it with trimming. This cannot be taken off, because the marks of its application will be too plainly visible. It would be wise, then, for those who are not yet ready to accept simpler outlines to use cheap, thin fabrics for the elabor ate ones. Skirts may be said to be about the Juste milieu for street wear—neither too long nor too short: but woe to the Chicago woman whose dress TOUCHES THE WOODEN WALKS that grace or disgrace this city I To be anchored every few steps is her certain fate, and the fresh dress with which she starts out from home, so neat around the hem, is torn, frayed, and spoiled before' she gets back. A project ing nail ' catches' it, and, before she can pause, an ugly rent is made. She releases herself, to find the rent enlarged, before she has § oho many steps further, by a second spike or a roksu plank. On the broad stone pavements of odder cities, this is avoided, and we hope to live to see the day when the wooden sidewalks (of Chicago trill be a thing of the past, while, ad in terim, we very much fear Chicago ladies, when they walk, will bo obliged to cling to the SHOBT DBESS-SKIBT { it is not graceful, only tolerable when all the world i a thus attired, and in summer is certaujly out of place.

Hot like the patri arch of old does she rend them for grief, bat she certainly grieves that they are rent. If Chicago most have wooden sidewalks until that much talked of grade is raised all over the city, couldn’t they be kept in proper repair ? In the name of all the rained dresses of the • feminine portion of Chicago, we pause for a reply. Think well of it, oh ye who are happy m the privileged bifur cations, for it would be much cheaper # to keep the walks in proper repair than it is to replace the mutilated skirts. As for home wear, even Bio Lewis, of Hygiene for women, advocated . LOKO AND FLOWING S2ZBTS, and this, too, at the anniversary of the Boston Women’s Club. He evidently loves to see a beautiful woman, makes health a criterion, and then prefers to see her robed in a mannerbecom ing her sex, rather than after the style of Mrs. Dr. Mary Walker. With all his predilection for the gymnasium, he does not care to make the dress suitable for that occupation or amusement a necessity for the drawing-room. To those who still are wanting something to complete their summer outfit, the dry-goods houses are offering at a very low price the soft est of CRETONNES AND CASHMERES, in exquisite neutral thus. These, made in polo naises, or the long ; loose-fitting redingote, and worn over a demi-trained skirt of silk of a darker shade, make a graceful and elegant cos tume. The skirt may be perfectly plain, while the polonaise should have a fold of the skirt material for trimming; cuffs and English collar, with large buttons, also of the Bilk. One of those costumes, with the above-named Nor mandy cap, parasol, gloves, and fan to match the dress, with small pouch at the side, if liked, is really the perfection of good taste for any young lady. Add to these the white dresses for the broiling days when the world seems a fur nace seven times heated, and we long for the immunity from soffering shared by the three historic children, or the Salamander,and we have tbo principal articles necessary for a summer campaign; There are full white suits s but the prevailing fancy is for a SWISS DOLMAN AND OVER-SKIRT, to be worn over black or colored silk skirts. The sleeves of the dolman are formed by tying the long, pointed side-pieces together with rib bons. Homo are elaborately trimmed with puffs and insertion, while others are quite plain. A puff laid over colored ribbon, and finished with an edge of Valenciennes, is a simple and pretty style of ornamentation. These invariably have the high lace ruff or fraise. Fichus, old-time pelerines, and scarfs are also imported, and the tambour-work and Mechlin lace of our grand mothers’ days are seen upon them. For the matrons, the day of has arrived, and it is the costume for street wear. Some of these are trimmed with puffs over ribbon, like the Swiss muslins; but the most elegant of them are all black, with a sonpeon of jet embroidery. Imported costumes are trimmed very prettily with French lace; bat it does not meet with favor in tho eyes of the exclusive classes here, and, although no doubt cheaper in the first place, soon grows irredeemably rusty. To those who can. alTord it, then, it is better, if lace is used, to bny English thread or real Chantilly, for it is available for a second dress after the first bae become passe. With a good stock ef real lace, any lady can keep her wardrobe look ing elegantly, for, whatever may be the popular freak of tho moment, handsome lace is always a dtsirabla trimming. If laoe, then, is not obtain able, it is better to trim simply with the grena dine, or, perhaps, a Little fringe or straw cord might be added. Add to this drees for the street a bonnet ail black, with thread-lace for trimming, and a handsome barbe for a neck-tie, pearl-col ored gloves, whito or black parasol, and black lace-mounted fan, and Madame has her visiting or church toilette complete. Solitaire diamond buttons in the ears, a high fraise around the neck, with velvet bands on throat and wrists, fastened by diamond buckles or slides, and, voila-. tout. For OBPIKAST BTBEET-DRESS, a camel’s hair polonaise or redingote over a black silk skirt, quite plain, straw bat, black kid gloves, black parasol and fan, and again we have the quintessence of good taste. Glaring colors are universally left to the vulgar many, and even they find their tastes tempered by habit ually seeing ladies quietly dressed. In our own city, large as it la, away from the business streets there is a certain approximation to rural quiet which makes it quite possible to wear on the less-frequented streets any simple IaXVTX OS CA3IBSIC HOCSE-DHZS3, providing it is not a wrapper proper: but the woman who will persist in wearing the latter costume out of doors is certainly wanting in good taste, to say the least. While the lugh bcelod shoes of the past few years have made nearly all of us fit subjects for tho chiropodist, and there may bo a* relief in dropping the outer covering for the feet, it does not look particular ly well to do so when one is employed in beauti fying the court-yard to her house by engaging in amateur gardening.- Could not some enter prising cordonnier revive ' THE BOUAH SANDAL, and make it a fashionable foot-covering, for the benefit of such of us who have corns, and bun ions, and deformed toes, caused by our martyr dom to Louis Quatorze heels ? There is danger in standing on the damp ground in cotton hose; but the sandal would protect the sole as well as the body, and not interfere with those little inconvenient pedal developments of an extra neous kind, with which Nature has revenged herself for oar rebeHion against her prescribed forms. We await the sandal, then, as a means of salvation to the sole, and hope soon to see it in the windows of oar leading shoerdeahsrs, and generally adopted for morning-wear by there to whom even the slipper of the present dsy is a torture; NEW YORK. From Our Own Correspondent. Nzw Fobs, June 13,1873. Weather-complainers and thermometric croak ers generally will be banished from society, if these present perfect days last another week. Not a lisp will be allowed at the expense of this atmosphere. Never, within my recollection, have we hod so many days with which one could find absolutely no fault, either under foot or overhead, as since tbiw month came in. Juno is almost invariably charming in Manhat tan ; but this year she has surpassed herself. With noon-tides that demand muslins, and midnights that make a blanket a delightful necessity,—if one be so fortunate as to be in bed at that hour,—one has really nothing to ask of “OM Probabilities,” who has practically taken the place of the late Mr. Herriam, of Springfield, as Clerk of the Weather. The city,—that is to say* the buildings, the parks, the avenues, —is looking its very best at this moment; but the city, socially speaking, is almost at its dullest. With the alight exception of some hundreds of thousands of people, whose longest summer excursion is a sail to Staten Isl and or an afternoon in Central Pork, there are, comparatively, few persons in town. The usual exodus, setting In with the ocean-crossing pleas ure-seekers early in April, began to thin fash ionable ranks six weeks earlier than in ordinary seasons. The impetus given to travel by the hordes that have departed Expogjtionward atarted the other recreators on their warm weather wanderings weeks before they generally leave home. Bo trunks are brought up from dust and cob- - voba { the last pieces come up from the laun dry; idle final garments are wrong from modistes* unwilling fingers; and away they go in every boat and train that leaves the Metropolis. TSAvzLda dbzsszs are one of the chief topics of discussion, just at present, in dressmakers’ drawing-rooms.. Is it best to have a skirt and polonaise, or two skirts and basque, or a cross, of one skirt and Tory deep basque ? Is it safe to start with an entire gown of linen, or with only a duster i These questions, simple though they seem, vex the cleverest modiste and her patrons. The decis ion has been generally given in favor of two skirts and basque, and it is wise, fn this stylo it is easy to pot'the upper skirt and waist into a vah»o, don a cambric-start, hide the want of proper drapery by. a long duster be comfortably clad, and have a fresh waist and over-dress to refresh one’s toilette with at the end of the journey. In a certain wav, the same thing can be done with a polonaise; but that garment takes up much more room ina hag, fre quently looks tumbled. after such oloee folding, and seems warmer in thin season than does the other mode. Very few suits for journeying are made with a skirt like, the upper port. A black - er very dark petticoat is almost always the basis to the costume, and this is extremely sensible as wall as pretty. The lower portion of the dress must, of necessity, get more or less soiled in the mud and dust Of a long trip, and, the-darker and - plainer it is, the better. A black silk or bril- liantine petticoat, with fiat folds for trimming', and a gray de boge or camel’s hair redingote, u a very trite and very,.satisfactory combination. (Isn’t it a misfortune that the things one par ticularly likes, everybody else particularly likes also ?) The favor which the redingote has found proves conclusively the growing desire for simple, unomamented garments; since nothing can excel it in its plainness, amounting almost to masculine, severity. Camel’s hair cloth, or what is called such, is a favorite fabric for travel ing dresses; deboge is another; and these aro the best the market affords, for they will not shrink or curl in the dampness,—most necessary virtues in anything which most be subjected to all states of atmosphere. But best of all attires for feminine tourists is an old black silk. I say fold, for the woman doesn’t exist who would bo lightly regard a new one as to devote it to car wear. A new black silk has virtues many; but an old one, if not too old, has them innumerable. A WANT UNSUPPLTFD. It is & great pity that a few of tbo dear, old, low, skull-clasping turbans, of half-a-dozen years ago, were not left ns, to be used solely for traveling. There has never been a style since which would endure sleeping in, and leaning against window-frames, and bangs, and jams, aa it would. It needed no trimming. A velvet binding edged it; a veil covered it; and it was cool, and light, and comfortable every way. We aboil never have anything like it, or to approach it again. Nothing new ever seems to resemble our ancient treasures till the new itself becomes a thing of the past. Then, if it have any charm at all, we grow aware of it through its absence. However, the fact is, that there is positively not a single shape in hats fit to wear for journeying; in other words, there is no shape wmch will ad mit of laying one’s head down. Wo women know that it is by no means always convenient to take off our hat when we want to rest our weary caput on the back of the seat, or the side of the window. Our hair, as like as not, has been done up with the express purpose of keep ing our bat on, —not to mention the chance of our crimps being still on pins, snugly tucked up in the crown. We don’t want to bo obliged to remove our head-covering; but we do want a covering that will take a few pokes and knocks without serious detrimentj and we have it not. There is a somewhat nearer approach to the par ticular need in the lowered crowns and rolling rims of many of the new hats, so that there is hope for the future. But, if the shape is at fault, the trimming is likewise. Who can take com fort on a dusty railway or damp steamboat,* with a yard or two of dellcatefiowers and lace stream ing down one’s back ? A plain band of silk* folds or ribbon, and, if one must have streamers, long ends of simple ribbon, is much the most suitable and satisfactory ornamentation for hack-hats; and, could an oxydized ornament bo tolerated anywhere, it would be there. WRAPS ON THE ROAD. “When the subject of travolingw'njapa comes up, it is difficult to tell what not to carry. One does not really require anv'extra garment in these warm days. Still, it is not safe to set forth without a water-proof, and a heavy shawl adds much to the comfort, even though it should not once be needed to cover the shoulders. And yet, with both these, a light wrap, like a cash mere dolman, is almost Indispensable. If tho three. can be carried without serious inconven ience, good; take them. But, if one has to be dispensed with, it must be the shawl; for to go away from homo any length of time without a water-proof is a good deal like setting forth in slippers and leaving high boots behind* We are getting to be almost as bod as our trans-Atlantic relatives in regard to water-proofs and umbrel las, and with some degree of reason, too, judged from the character of the past winter ana spring. DBKrWDfO Tins FEET for traveling is a matter in which care should be used* It is infinitely wiser to wear slightly,* rubbed boots that ore thoroughly fitted to tho foot, than to start in those perfectly new, even though they appear more elegant. The tiniest feet will expand a trifle in a not summer-day ; and then the torture which even a well-shaped, but entirely now, gaiter will inflict on the ex tremities. is beyond description. Tho suspicion of a hole in on old shoo is bettor the cer tainty of pain in a now. The former only hurts our vanity; while the latter injures our toes, and indirectly our temper and our manners. It is positively impossible to smile and smile, and be murdered while you smile, if murder begins with your tendercst joint or your unacknowl edged com. Should it bo possible to crowd a pair of Oxford ties into your hand-bag, to wear daring two or three days of continuous railway riding, they will be found a great relief from tho warmth and stiffness of Polish boots. And, above all, don’t wear rubbers. If tho streets aro flooded when you start, and you must encase your unlucky feet in those inventions of the enemy in order to reach the station in dryness, remove them as soon as you aro seated, or you will have only yourself to thank for corns, bun ions, and blisters unnumbered. My own impres sion is, that rubbers were the device of some protecting imp of chiropodists, in the interest, of such calling. They are responsible for moro tender feet than all the paper-solod shoes in the universe. Such overshoes prevent* the natural moisture from escaping, at the same time in creasing it, and, from continued wearing, getthe feet Into a sort of parboiled state, which lays the foundation for every pedal disease. To my mind, a moderately wet shoe is preferable to au overshoe.* • OLOyES, COLLARS, AND CTJFT3. There aro people so reckless of money as to bay new gloves to go junketing in. When they do so, they choose the long, straight-wxisted chamois with throe buttons, or the gauntlets of the same material, or the now Lisle-thread' gloves, finished to resemble kid, which come this year for the first time cut with some refer ence to the shape of the hand. The fingers no longer reach bat little above the second joint, leaving the other inch or so to be concealed by the hand of the glove. This season, the digital' coverings fit like kid, close up to the knuckles, and do not spread oat in the old flat, flabby man ner. They are really very pretty ana nice,’if one wishes gloves of the kind. But there are those of us who, when we are ready to leave on our. summer-campaign, mend all the rips in our old kids, and, with a dozen or more pairs of: them, feel well-equipped for any expedition. Put one pair on, and the rest in the; bag. When the pair yon have on be comes moist inside, or too dingy outside for polite society, pull them off, throw them aside, and replenish. This is really an excellent way to manage; for every woman has plenty of slightly-soiled or ripped gloves, enfficontly fresh for the dust and stain of travel, that are not fresh enough to be seen on the promenade or on a round of calls. One word more about traveling gear. If yonrj journey is to be long, or you aro going to stop only a day or two in a place, it la convenient and comfortable to wear paper collars and cuffs by the way,—leaving your supply of linen for hotel use. Ladies’ collars and cuffs in paper are now made pretty and pliable, and are es pecially satisfactory in warm weather, when, upon the least sign of wilting, they can be re newed without the extraneous aid of the laundry, Pusbzlow, THINK OF ME Not whea thy heart with mirth is light.
