Special Corristondence of The Chicaao Tribune, New Yowl April 18.—After the customary dis play on Easter Sunday, it is safe to speak with authority on what is not ala mode. Novelties in stockings arc odd, but rather pretty. Some have wreaths of gay flowers winding around the leg from instep to kneo; others have a large bouquet of bright-colored flowers adorning the instep, and again, somo very stylish ones an shown having horizontal stripes extending across only the front of the leg and over the instep. Chemises to be worn with thin summer dresses have no sleeves, only a narrow band across tho shoulders edged on either side with lace or embroidery. Many of the corsages to imported dresses button close around the throat, and are finished with a high collar, around which is fastened a dog-collar of gold or silver. This arrangement dispenses with a bow or tie. Some very*pretty jackets for evening wear are made of alternate stripes of black velvet ribbon and Valenciennes insertion. Around tho edge of the sacque is z heavy fall of white lace. These Jackets ure made both with and without sleeves. In the latter case, the arm-holes arc finished in like manner with the bottom. Crcam coiorcd cuffs and collars'of cambric, with the corners worked in Greek squares of blue, scarlet, gray, or black washing wool, are dainty and becoming addi tions to morning dresses. Some facnionablo sun-um brellas have the handle of tone, m tho shape of the lower portion of a horse’s leg, the shoe beine of ivory, beld in place with silver nails. The silks most used in the making and trimming of HATS are the frosted, the turquoise, and tho drap des Inaes. In tho mode of wearing tho hats most fashionably, one of two extremes prevails. They are worn either very low upon the forehead or far back upon the head. Many of those that come over the face have no trim ming but a scarf of Bilk net, cut three-cornered, brought over the crown and tied at the back with short ends. Long white illusion-strings find favor on even ing hats. They are attached underneath the hat at the back, whence they fasten In front at tho throat with a small bunch of flowers. Apropos of flowers, those on the spring hats are very small and fine. Largo flowers are voted vulgar. Wheat and grasses gone to seed are largely used. A very pretty hat has u turned-up brim, faced with black velvet, across which is a wreath of wheat, Tho crown is en circled with a similar wreath; at the back is a double bow of cr&un-colored silk beld in place by a bunch of exquisitely line scarlet flowers. A very handsome bonnet is of the much admired capote shape, and is made of black thread lace. Across the upright brim Is a delicate spray of white and purple pansies. At the side, imbedded in loops of lace, is a twiu cluster held in place by a beautiful and costly bucklo of fretted sil ver and smoked pearls. Ends of silk net edged with the lace come from tho back of the bonnet, and, after winding around the neck, are clasped at the neck with a corresponding buckle and tiny bouquet of white and purple violets. Now that in view of the worm weath er, a disposition is shown to discard the heavy scarfs so universally worn during the past season, some very prettv kerchiefs of lace come forward to replace them. These am of muslin, three-cornered m form, and trimmed with Valenciennes laoe. The ends are crossed in front, and fastened with a long and slender brooch. A VERY HANDSOME DRESS is of myrtle green silk, the skirt hiving a deep knife pleated flounce surmounted by two double puffs. A polonaise is made of fine camel's-hair and baa around the edge two finger-wide folds of velvet, an eighth of an inch apart; these bands are of dark myrtle-green, and are finished at the top with email points, each ter minating with a small button and tassel. A chatelaine pocket of velvet and camel's-bair, with a fringe of but tons arid tngj»io ) completes this very stylish costume. IN WRAPS, the Dolmans still take precedence. Some very hand some ones are of black silk, rich with baud embroidery, and consequently exceedingly costly. Others are beautifully trimmed with guipure or thread lace. Some of cashmere aro very stylish, while those for traveling are in shape like full-dress wraps, but made chiefly of striped or plaided flannel. These Dolmans are. many of tfrpm, much like the old-fashioned “ cir culars * that enfolded our great grandmothers, and seem to prove that fashion is confined to a circle, and periodically reaches the same points. Silk handkerchiefs, with borders harmonizing or contrasting effectively in color with the dress, take precedence of linen ones. Some very pretty and novel mouchoirs have a fau-like pleating of fine linen cambric at each comer, while the sides are finished with a broad hem, headed with a double row of hem stitching. The handkerchiefs most in demand are of the delicate cream tint which has created such a furore. But we find now that ecru occupies a divided throne and shares its popularity with a new shade just imported, and which promises to win general favor. It is known as ecru-perle, and is beet described as pearl-gray, with a slightly bluish tinge intermingled with the merest suspicion of crimson, which renders it most effective. It is a shade calcu lated to blend beautifully with plum and navy-blue, and is already seen in many stylish imported cos tumes. Among eome exquisite toilets is shown AN EVENING DUZSB of cream-colored naite, etriped with pale blue and cufe-au-Uit over blue silk. Tiie skirt uof blue silk, with three rows of knife-pleating. The tunic of the fancy goods is trimmed down the front with a double ruche and around the edge with a tineplissc of silk. The sides of the bodice and the sleeves are of blue silk, the front and back of tho striped natte. A tasteful pleat ed aurnomere of blue silk and faille makes a pretty addition to this beautiful costume. Polonaises still bold their own ; indeed they rank first and highest. The basque is naturally a favorite with ladies of slen der, symmetrical figure, but to those with broad shoul ders and full hips give the polonaise. Some very pretty vinaigrettes are made of pearl shells (clams or oyster) rimmed and tipped with sil ver. The metal mania still retains its original vigor. Many of oar fashionable ladies, arrayed in dresses « shot ” with gold, silver, or steel, and trimmed with braid and gimp, resplendent with threads and strands of the same metalv, look more like men in armor than womanly women. Some new chatelaines have three rh.iina pendant from the belt, one bearing a tablet, another a pencil, while to the third the fan is attached. Side-pockets for young girls appear to good advan tage if swung over the left shoulder, and allowed to fall low on the right side. The addition of these chate laine pockets gives to a handsome toilet a pretty com pleteness, which is very effective. Mizzne S. PARIS. THE LATEST FASHIONS. 'Special CorresDoitdenee of The Chteaao Tribune . Paris, April 7.—As all the caprices of fashion seem to have exhausted themselves, there is nothing really new to notice for the coming sea son, unless a revival of simplicity may be so considered. An effort to revive the polonaise baa partially succeeded, while the Princess, the cuirass* b&squo, the Watteau are equally in vogue. Evening dresses sometimes have large pockets on the pretext of garniture, and are or namented with pollings, bows, niching, and sometimes with branches of flowers. There never was a broader field for the exorcise of fancy and individual taste, as fashion is no longer absolute. Exaggerated and vulgar imi tations of stereotyped styles render every nov elty so common that the moat recherche toilettes are those which evidence simple elegance and originality. Tho novelty of the season in dress-material is foulard crepe de chine, which is extremely beautiful and lustrous, and will replace the crepe do chine of last year. It comes in dark, rich colors, brilliant hues, and cameo tints. The last are exceedingly distingue, and very rare. Even modern fancy work assumes time’s impress, and embroidering silks and zephyrs are used in posse tints to bestow the *• pstiner” cf ago, as artists say. It is to be questioned, however, whether we can compote with needle-work that often vied in beauty with pointings of the old Italian school, and adorned the palaces of Kings. This art gave rise to in ventions for a more speedy manufacture of regal hangings and adornments; and. under the auspices of Louis XIV., Gouelin perfected his celebrated tapestry. There are specimens now extant, exhibiting the splen dor of his coloring under guidance of Le Brim, which axe still an dimmed, and surely Dame Fashion has not access to all the archives of the past, or she would not dip her pencil so mercilessly in dingy hues. OUR OPERATIC WORLD is clouded with dramatic immorality, and the music of those nroductions only deserves attention. The rep* resentatibn of one of our new operates, “LaPetite Mariee," proves that it belongs to tho family of bouf founenes of the broadest sense, and it is to be regret* ted that the musical talents of Lecoq have been so misdirected as to assist in pampering the degenerate taste of the age, and accepting the bait of enormous sums to minister to popular vulgarity. We need the genuine humor of Moliere to arouse the whole intelligent world, and his delicate satires to produce reforms. His ** Precieoscs Bidiculos ” made spectators laugh as they recognized themselves, and Louis XIV. was so amused he made the company his own. And we are to have Moliere in the primitive style, that charmed the Marshal Vivonne, the great Conde, and the King. Prof. Weksrlia has arranged tho music of Bull! in the “ Bourgeois Gentllbomme ” from manuscripts of Philidor. He has scrupulously preserved the accompaniments of string instruments, supported only by two bassoons and two flutes. The generation which preceded us was averse to clatter and uproar, it valued symphony, in proportion to its grace, softness, and sweetness. But the times have changed I Wo are told such music is flat, insipid, and absolutely ridiculous; that we exist in an age of progress, and the noisy trombones of Wagner have replaced your flutes; that our shepherds have no longer crooks, nor our magistrates wigs. It is true the “ Bourgeois Gen tiihomme ' ’ is mixed with some buffooneries; but it is full of power, and no other talent than Moliere’s could reproduce the character of Monsieur Jourdain, the «« bourgeois gcntilhomme,” who would only give hia <laurli l<-r to a gentleman, and who married her to the son of a “ Grand-Tuor do carnival.’* Oar modem authors have so distorted tho talents of Moliere in ar> ranging his works for the stage that much credit is due to Prof. Wekerlin, who presents Moliere in hia original character without change. iUxniLDK.

THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: SUNDAY, APRIL 23, 1876—SIXTEEN PAGES. - BEAUTIFUL HOMES. A Bail dine Enterprise Blending the ffisthetical and Practical to an Uncommon Degree. The Good Sense and Artistic Spirit Visi ble in Every Portion of Aldine Square. A Unique and Charming Residence Quar ter : Its Attractions and Advantages. A Handsome Unity of the Rural and Metropolitan. VTo believe that the nomadic instincts of West em families are chiefly duo to the unattractive surroundings which prevail even in the cases of the more elegant of our residences. The in terior of a homo may be ever so beautiful, but if tho front windows look out upon a dusty street or a row of straggling rookeries across the way, or if the ‘rear view gives only dismal roof-tops, bock-kitchens, sheds, and stables for its vista, it is but a question of time for the eye and the heart to weary and to long for a change. The family that lives a generation through in one house in any Western city la phenomenal. TUE ALMOST INVARIABLE RULE is to wander from one spot to another, vainly seeking for permanent location and rest. The house which is built and furnished at a heavy expense, and which is intended to bo at least the life-abode of parents and children, is abandoned m a few years,—sold or rented, —while the orig inal occupants incur fresh cost for a new estab lishment elsewhere. In Europe, families live ia the same homesteads for centuries, the manor-house being handed down from father to son as the proudest of legacies. In tho Eastern States this attachment to a single time-honored homo is not uncommon; but Chicago knows, as yet, of no such rule, and we stray from one quarter of the city to another, as restless as Arabs. THIS UNEASY SPIRIT, which is wholly prejudicial to comfort and general peace of mind, besides * militating against the general and individual prosperity of the community, is likely to be finally conquered hero, as it has been in the older portions of the world. Tho single element necessary to bring about this change is to make everything m and around our homes so attractive that the craving to ex periment in other directions will be impossible. A great stop in this desirable way has just been made. Tho good judgment and vigorous action of one mau has given thrifty life to a building enterprise which is the pioneer of its kind, and must ever remain an admirable model for luturo workers in the same commendable lino. A YEAR’S TIME has seen magical work effected on Vincennes avenue, just below Thirty-seventh street. It has seen the inception, carrying forward, and realization of a plan of private residences which for convenience and beauty is unsurpassed in the United States. A contemporary journal has recently commented upon the striking ad vantages and many excellencies oJ the place, and The Tribune, after a thorough inspection, can but join heartily in ail that has been said. TUS NAME OF ALPINE SQUARE baa been bestowed upon a tract of land and its striking improvements, situated at the locality mentioned. To those who have not yet visited the place the name carries no particular mean ing or auggestiveness. To those who have, and their number is already large, Aidine Square means an assemblage of carefully-designed and handsomely-bailt homes, grouped sym metrically around a charming park, ibe whole forming ibe brightest and most cheerful resi dence portion of Cmcago. The enterprise’ was conceived and has been matured by U. P. Smith, Esq., the owner of several acres in'the neighborhood named, who bad long intend ed to improve his property in a man ner that would redound to the city’s good name and to hiS own material benefit. After patiently elaborating his project and set ting his ideas upon the subject into practical shape, he proceeded to put them into tangible, enduring form, and Aidine Square began to bud into existence about one year ago. No minute has been wasted since that time, and at the present writing the work is mainly finished, and a portion of the bouses have been secured by owners, who, we venture to predict, will never care to look elsewhere for permanent homes. Aidine Square consists of a continuous series of elegant two and three story stone structures, lining thp.ee sides of a spacious and beautiful park. Thera are twonty-foar bouses altogether, and all are of handsome design and finish, within and withont. While an artistic unity of exterior has been presented, special care has been taken to avoid monotony, and thorough variety exists in compa ny with perfect general barmouy of detail. The buildings are of light stone in some instances, and of dark in others. There are plain fronts and swell fronts, and the fact that a portion of them are three stones high while others adjoining them are a story lower gives effective broken sky-lines all around. The dwellings are conveniently arranged, and are finished, inside and out, with the utmost care. The houses have a frontage of 22 feet and up wards, with a common depth to the lota of 125 feet, the rears of all the lots coming upon alleys. Among the innumerable novel conveniences of the place is a large and completely-appointed UVEBY-STABLE, which has been built behind the bouses at the southwest corner of the square. This is airy, commodious, has accommodations for seventy horses, and has been leased to an experienced liveryman who is pledged to keep a first-ciass establishment. The horses and carriages owned by residents of the square will be cared for here at minimum figures, and teams will be on hire for those who do not desire to maintain their own turn-outs. An omnibus is to be run be tween the square and the Douglas place railroad depot whenever the weath er is bad. The stable is to be in telegraphic communication with every bouse in the square, a knob touched m any residence sounding an annunciator in the stable, and bringing a man to whom orders may be given. But despito the elegance and manifold com forts of the bulldlngc, we are Inclined to think that the groat and lasting attraction of Aldme Square will centre in THE BEAUTIFUL PARE. This stretch of pleasure ground lying in front of tbe homes is studded with largo, healthy trees, and contains a fine, clear pood, in tbe middle of which are two busy fountains, and over which is thrown a graceful bridge. A broad macadamized drive runs clear around tbe park, and charming paths twine in and out among tbe lawns and trees. A smooth tessel ated walk encircles the place, connecting all the houses. The huge - leaved and many-colored out-door plants which have been such an admired feature in our public parka are all roady to be set out within this captivating inclosnre as soon as tbe weather is upon its assured good behavior. Tbe side of tho square which comes direct upon Vincennes avouuo presents to the street a solid carved stone wall, with an imposing car riage entrance in the middle and a pedestrian passage-way at either end. This wall, while not so high as to in tho least shut tbe square from outside view, gives an intimation of tbe privacy of tbe inclosure, and unmistakably says that the park should not be more than semi-public. Ornate lamps surmount tbe columns at tbe sides of tho carnage gateway, and other lamps within give an abundance of light in tnis darkest or nights. Of tbe forty-two completed houses, fifteen are already occupied, and the residents comprise members of tbe city’s FOREMOST SOCIAL CIRCLES. The remaining residences are, we understand, for sale, but not lor rent. The owner is using commendable discretion, and does not al low the houses to pass into the bands of any bnt strictly first-class parties. He fives there himself; bis neighbors are all of unquestioned social position and repute, and this high cnaracter is to be maintained. Aldme square will always be a community of excellent families, owning their individual homes, and having a joint pride in each other and ia the beautiful park which is their common property. The agency for the sale of these houses is ia the hands of Mr. W. 1). Kerf do t. For a pleasant whiling away of a few hours to-day and coming Sunday, we commend our readers to A VISIT to Aldine Square. The Cottage Grove and In diana avenue cars ran on either side of it & few blocks away. The Grand Boulevard is just be hind it, and, as with ancient Borne, all road* seem to lead to it. The Sqoare is only twenty minutes’ drive from the heart of the city, while the railway station at Thirty-fifth street gives ■till another regular daily means of access. In accessibility, as in ftU things else, ildlne Square is peculiarly favored. That it ia to become at once the abiding place of exactly forty-two contented and pros perous families is evident. The houses yet un sold are held at the most honorable of prices, and it is wholly impossible chat coming pur chasers should see their property do other than advance in worth. They will be the happy own ers of valuable homes, and who can doubt that their children’s children will be found living in the same dwellings, blessing the propitious fates that gave permanent existence to Aldine Square ? _ Elegant Furniture at Seasonable Fricei* It will doubtless bo sews to our readers to learn that the great furniture-handling firm of A. L. Hale & Bro. have disposed of tbeir large store at Nos. 200, 202, 204, and 206 Randolph street. In order to give possession on tho 15th of July they offer their entire stock of elegant furniture at tho most reasonable prices. Tho goods must be sold by that date. It is an excel lent opportunity for people desiring to purchase furniture. Flowers, Choice Flowers* Go to W. J. Ellinwood, No. 66 Washington street, the most reliable seedsman in Chicago, and got a box of 23 varieties of the choicest an nual flower seeds for sl, or a package of 12 va rieties for 50 cents, all fresh and new, and war ranted to grow. His bnlbs, c&rden-seeds, and shrubbery give such perfect satisfaction that there is a general demand for them, because the best is always tho cheapest.
