An Evening Reception in Paris—Harmony of Color in Dress. CHICAGO. ALLARD-MOEEAU. Tuesday at 3 p. m., Mr. George Allard, of Menominee, Mich., and Miss Maggie Moreau were married.

They were married in the Cathedral, comei of State and Superior streets. Miss Ella M. Tookc was bridesmaid, and Mr. Arthur G. Barron groomsman. From the church they drove to the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Felene, cousins of the bride,where a fine snpper awaited them. Af»*r receiving congratulations, the bridal party embarked on the TruesdeU for Menominee, their future home, followed by the best wishes of their many friends. THE ARGUS. Thursday evening the Argus Literary Society held their quarterly reception, and, notwith ilanding the fact that “the gods were not pro pitious,” there was a goodly number present. But as It was evident that the rain had some what dampened the enthusiasm of their many friends and admirers, Mr. F. H. Dickey, the President, called the Society to order. A mo tion was made and carried that the reception be postponed until Monday evening, June 5. The sentiment was incoimorated in the motion, how ever, the friends who had overcome circum stances and were with them should be enter .ained in their best possible manner. That the notion was carried out in spirit and letter all rho enjoyed their hospitality will testify. KPIPHANT CHURCH.

New Yore, June I.—June is the month of choicest fdlhions as well os rarest roses, and in this peculiarity our Centennial June is pre-emi nent. In colors there Is little change. The eld historical hues and combinations of amber and crimson, scarlet and black, green and gold, are worn a great deal Cream color is on the wane, and to replace ivory-white has been introduced. Some exquisite fabrics, with a ground of the latter, are thickly sprinkled with buds and blossoms of natural form, and colors, and arranged in clusters, sprays, or trading garlands. A beautiful color, which Is very popular, is silver-pearl gray. In silks and the new fabrics it is exceedingly pretty. An elegant visiting toilette of this color has a long skirt of toft, heavy American silk. This has five rows of fine knife-pleating oddly and attractively arranged. For a space of 6 inches the pleating (which is 6 inches deep) is put on as usual, and then for an equal space it is sewed on horizon tally so as to give a general effect of its being braided together or plaided. The overskirt is known as the “bolteuse,” longer on the left than the right side. It is of damasse, the same shade* aa uie' ildrL and is edged with a fine pleating of gilk. Above this is a band of pretty, dressy garniture, known as moss trimming. The basque is tight-fitting, and of dan»assc. There is a deep vest of the pearl-gray silk, fasten ed with exquisitely wrought buttons of smoked motber-of-oearl. The coco is finished to match the overdress. The sleeves are formed of diagonal Sufis, wide and full, and at the outer scam is a and of the moss trimming. A “Baby” bonnet, with puffed crown of pearl-gray gauze, shot with silver, has a brim of chins, in color like the gauze. A trailing spray of apple-blossoms half wreaths the crown, and is caught up at the back with an orna ment of silver ana smoked pearl. Across the front of the bonnet is a band of half-opened apple blos soms, and “brides” silver-grey gauze are knotted under the chin with a dainty cluster of the same. This, with undressed kid gloves, of the shade of the dress, completes an exquisite and delicate toilette. The peculiar shade, however, which is known as 44 silver-pearl gray, is rather trying, as are pale lavender and lilac, to most com plexions. Among desirable materials may bemen tioned de begc, which is extensively worn. A very pretty morning costume is of checked de bege. Tbeskirthasa wide, gathered flounce, headed by two bias folds at short distances apart. The tunic is in front a round tablier, and has two wide, pointed ends, which are tied in the back and fall to the top of the flounce. A large bow of faille se cures the scarf-like drapery. The bodice is Joan of Arc, with pointed back and trimmed with a bias band of de begc. A gathered pocket, cat to a point at the bottom, ornaments the left side. A hand some yet rather prononco CARRIAGE TOILETTE was shojvn me in the rooms of a celebrated modiste as having been ordered for one of our well-known society ladies. The skirt, which is quite long, Is of fine checked silk, black and white. A deep shirred flounce borders the skirt, and has as a top finish four shirred puffs. These are separated, one from another, by a row of exccssively-narrow velvet, in color, bright scarlet At the extreme bottom of the rufile is a fine knife-pleating 4 inches in depth. The overdress is long, straight and smooth. From the waist to the lower it is open in front, and at in tervals of a finger’s length are placed large eyelet boles. The skirt is closed by being laced with a cord of red silk, with which Is mingled a mere suspicion of black and white threads. The cord is tied at the termination of the eyelet holes, and two heavy tassels fall over the flounce of the skirt. The overdress is bordered with an inde scribable fringe of black and white buttons and red tassels, alternating with black and white tassels and red buttons. Above the fringe are five straight rows of narrow scarlet velvet. The basque is tight-fitting, and is fastened on the front with large, round, flatonttons of Jet, with a raised design in ivory. There is a vest most peculiarly yet pret tily arranged. It consists of npright shirred puffs divided by the little line of scarlet. Down the centre of the back is a wide flat poff, and on each side of it are three rows of velvet. A bat of white chip, with trimmings of red silk, dainty black and white feathers, and rich thread lace, completes this very showy outfit. A VERY HANDSOME TOILETTE of dark-blue silk has elaborate trimmings, pip ings, ruches, and revere of deep cardinal red. Itis an imported dress, with “French” undeniably; stamped on every fold. The latest skirts are madft’ to fit the figure stf closely that very little tying-back is required, but when a 4 * pull-back” is desirable, the tapes are now placed as low as the knees, in stead of at the hips, as formerly. Linen suits have found mnch favor this sammer, and some very prettily-ornamented ones are shown. Those trimmed with braid are not worked in fig ures and intricate designs, bat have the braid put on in rows. Skirts Intended to be worn with polonaise have all the trimming at the bottom only, and in no case should it reach above the knee. Stont ladies will give additional grace to their figures by patting five seams in the nack of their polonaise or basque. Low-cut shoes of black kid tie over the instep, and are thus distinguished from slippers. They are ornamented with buckles of silver, steel, or jet, and bows of plain black ribbon. A very pret ty and comfortable summer shoe has over the in step three very narrow straps of kid, through which the embroidered “ Balbriggan ” or dainty “clock” stocking shows with good effect. THE “DCBABBY” COAT, which I mentioned in my last, has made a encees fnl hid for popular favor. It is generally worn with a plain linen chemisette, simulating a gentle man's shirt bosom, and a Piccadilly collar. Small studs and a narrow folded cravat of black or dark colored. silk complete the delusion, and make ns look twice before we decide whether it is a belle or bean before os. Very pretty flehns, known as Marie Antoinette, are made of the material need in the dress. They are meant for street use, and are generally worn with costumes of grenadine and woolen goods and also light summer silks. PARASOLS. Some novelties in the parasol line have tiny vin aigrettes finishing the end of the handle. A very handsome one is of twilled amber silk, with a cov ering of fine thread lace. A fall of lace gathered very fall and about a finger deep, borders the edge. The handle is of real amber, highly polished, and at th»end terminates in a very slender um. This is the vinaigrette. It is heavily inernsted with gold, and the little stopper is of solid gold and prettily designed. For general use, the parasol most in demand is of blade twilled silk, lined with white, pinked in deep scollops around' the edge, and ornamented with frills of black thread lace. The bandies ore plain, smooth sticks of ebony, mounted and inlaid with old silver, tortoise-shell inlaid with pearl, or else yellow ivory worked with gold or silver. For warmer weather and country use, are buff, gray, and white pongee parasols, lined with a color and having plain or twisted bamboo sticks. For monming there arc black parasols, covered with crape, the handles being unpolished ebony. A small screen of ‘white or black silk, richly embroid ered, with ivory or coral handle, is the favorite parasol when driving in an open carriage. For all deep mourning garments, are losterless, clinging fabrics of raven black. They are tamise, French cashmere, and English bombazine. Be sides these, there are the new 4 * epingllne ll crepe and messerole cloth, and the handsome, double-twilled imperial serge. For very warm days, the iron, canvas-mesn grenadine Is appro priate. Gray, combined with black, may be worn for second monming. Various materials are em ployed, Turkish brilllantme, opera alpaca, also chintzes, cambrics, and organdies, with a white ground, broken with plaids, checks, or sprigs of black. For trimming, English crepe may be put on in folds, shim, pipings, etc. Many straw and chip bonnets have the crown completely concealed by coquillcs of lace, in which nestle clusters of flowers, bunches of small fruit, or bows and knots of ribbon. Broad-brimmed, round hats are worn for the promenade. Among these, the Cavalier is the favorite. A hat of this style is of exquisitely fine leghorn, and has a wide, drooping brim; on the left side, the brim is tamed up and fastened close to the crown by a cluster of fuchsias, im bedded in a rosette of black lace. A scarf, with a heavy fringe, is knotted carelessly about the crown, and falls to the waist in the back. A trailing spray of fuchsias, in color deep crimson and richporple, droop in the back, where the scarf is tied. Mattie S. PAMS. LITERARY DECAY. Special Correspondence of The Tribune, Paris, May 16.—Paris, with all its animation, Us architectural elegance, and stores overflow ing with magnificence, surely cannot be rivaled. Carriages roll through the great dty as they did in days of yore, the busy crowd keeps up its in cessant turmoil; but life has changed. The ob trusive blazonry of ignorance and wealth recalls the past, when Prance directed the taste and literature of Germany, and the great Leibnitz composed in oar language in preference to his own. Athens, too, arises before us with its glory swept away by a popular torrent of ig norance that respected nothing, and the corn fields blooming amidst the ruins of its sublimity and grandeur, point to our future, if the de cadence, so visible around us, is not arrested. Efforts are not wanting in a certain direction to elevate the standard ox literature and art, and perhaps a new era is about to dawn which will regenerate the senseless vanities of the day. M. Lamourcauz has sent a powerful appeal to M. le ilinlstre dcs Beaux Arts, in which there is nothing exaggerated. He states:’“We are forgetting the grandes traditions, surfeit ing jpursclvcs with light productions that contain neither method nor instruc tion. discouraging authors whose works savor of high art, and, in fact, destroying all sense of the beautiful which nature has implanted within .us." The result of his appeal to the musical world baa been to popularize the great works of Bach and Handel, and thus give a vigorous impulse to a taste which was degenerating. One of the finest concerts of the season was recently opened by the grand symphonic of Hayden, the forty-first. In Ut minor. The first piece, vigorous and orig inal, produced a thrilling effect; the andante m mibemol is full of profound melancholy, but its value did not appear to be fully appreciated by the audience. The very rapid finale exhibited remark able developments in style fugnre, and the whole demands ns to render justice to the authors who have exhumed from their tomb works so interest ing of the father of symphony. Thanks are also due to M. Silvain Saint-EUegmc, whose'perfect translation, so well adapted to the music,* pas ren dered it possible to execute in French the chcenr deSaul by Handel. “LeHouet d’Ompbale" was charming, but the pearl of the concert was the magnificent concerto pour violin by Beethoven. The execution was perfect, and M. Wieniawski baa obtained a brilliant and well-merited success. Gounod ascending the stage as director of an offer ing of his own composition is indeed a novelty, and it is scarcely necessary to state that the author of “Faust" was no leas applauded as a director than as a composer. Now, let ns cast a coup d’ceif over the arrange ments of Madame 1) for one of her MORNING RECEPTIONS. Good taste, and a certain tact are required to di rect a * * toilette d’ intcrienr, ” and care must be ta ken that it does not excel in elegance* the dress of the visitors, whilst an affectation of simplicity is equally to be avoided. That of Madame D. Is a perfect model, and well accords with the taste dis played in all tbe surroundings. In a corner of tbe room a table etagerffis supplied with delicacies, whilst a Jardiniere is supported by the upper etagere, from which a latamer spreads its leaves to the celling. Bed bells of email cactus fall in cas cades around tbe base, and behind the foliage a Ve netian mirror reflects the lights of tbecandelabra, placed each side of the jardiniere. Small enps of old Japan china, scattered here and there, in stands of silver flligrane, are for coffee, and those for tea are equally small. All is perfect in every detail, hut does not resemble in any respect an evening re ception. CONSPICUOUS AMONG THE TOILETTES was a Princess robe of dark bine silk, with train THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: SUNDAY. JUNE 4, 1876-SIXTEEN PAGES- ornamented by a small flounce gnnu«, n i e< j by a puff. This is draped with a scarf of bine »ua cold color, folded to perfection, and nearly covcrnU the skirt. One side is ornamented by bows and ends of bine ribbon, and the other retained in glace by thick cords and tassels of bine and gold, orsage and sleeves of plain blue silk llkcthe skirt. Among the many worthy of particular notice we will select another. It was an open corsage of black silk, with sleeves of white striped chaiy, and garniture of white lace. The front of skirt is lack with deep flounce, the sides pleated, and ornamented at equal distances with white bows. The back is trained and formed of three breadths of white chaiy, covered with black lace; this ia looped many tunes by bows of white and- black silk. Fringes are mnch in vogue, and are very beautiful, consequently very expensive. A row of fringe is frequently placed below one of lace, and so arranged that It spreads over the fnliness of a flounce. This is very simple, bat effective and original. Barege in white, light colors, “bleoede del,” “rose-pale,” etc., is much used for young girls, with little or no garniture. A small scarf mantelet with fringe, capote of rose illusion and veil of the same, admirably completes one of these distingue toilettes. Hathilde. HARMONY IN DRESS. RELATIONS OP COLORS. Dedicated to his Pupils by C. Blveena. In costumes, nothing is more common than, to sec colors employed together which are dis cordant ; for instance, purple and green. Now, be the dress or bonnetever so well made, and the wearer cjver so beautiful, this effect of such ignorance will be unpleasant in the ex treme. Evcfy color bas its perfect harmony, which is called its contrast, and also other colors which harmonize with it in different degrees. When two colors are associated which do not ac cord, the addition of a third may make a har monious group. The same rule holds good with three or more colors. There are two kinds of harmony acknowledged in the grouping of colors, namely: the harmony of contrast,' and the harmony of analogy. When two colors which are dissimilar are associated agreeably, such as bine and orange, or lilac and cherry, they form a harmony of contrast. And when two distant tones of one color arc associated, such as very light and very dark blue, they har monize by contrast Of course, in the latter in stance, the harmony is neither so striking nor so perfect When two colors are grouped which arc similar to each other in disposition, such as orange and scarlet, crimson and crimson-brown, or orange and orange-brown, they form a harmony of analogy. And If two or more tones of one color be associat ed, closely approximating in intensity, they har monize by analogy. The harmonies of contrast are more effective, although not more important than those of analo fy; the former are characterized by brilliancy and ecision, while the latter arc peculiar for their quiet retiring, and undemonstrative nature. In affairs of dress both hold equal positions; and in arranging costume care must be taken to adopt the proper species of harmony. The simplest rules to be observed are the following: First when a color is selected which is favorable to the com plexion it la advisable to associate tints which will harmonize by analogy, because the adoption of contrasting colors would diminish its favorable effect. Second, when a color is employed in dress which ia injurious to the complexion, contrasting colors mast be associated with it as they have the power to neutralize its objectionable influence.. I will take an example illustrative of the first rule. Green suits the blonde, and, when worn by her, its associated colors should be tones of itself (slightly lighter or darker), which will rather en hance than reduce its effect As an example of the second rule, 1 may take violet which, although unsuitable to brunettes, may be rendered agreeable by having tones of yellow or orange grouped with it Colors of similar power which contrast with each other mutually intensify each other's brilliancy, as bine and orange, scarlet and green. When dark and very light colors are associated they do not in tensify each other in the same manner; the dark color is made to appear deeper, and the light to appear lighter, as dark-blue or straw-color, or any dark color and the light tints of the complexion. Colors which harmonize with each other by analogy reduce each other's brilliancy to a greater or less degree, as white and yellow, bine and purple, black and brown. In dress It Is objectionable to associate together different hues of one color, for instance, yellow green and blue-green, or orange-brown and pur ple-brown. Care mnat therefore be token in select ing different tones of a color to see that they be long to the same scale. There is another fact I wish to bring before yonr readers ere 1 close these remarks on the harmony of color, namely: That tlnfs which accord by day light may appear inharmonious by artificial light, and vice versa. Thns, purple and orange har monize by day, but are disagreeable by gaslight; and white and yellow, which are unsatisfactory by daylight, are suitable for evening dress. A TRAMPS TALK. A tramp, eh, ma’am? Well, maybe that I be, Sewin’ as how I’ve come of miles no few Since first I kicked the city-dnst behind. And hoofed it in an old boot and a shoe. What do I walk for? Well, ma’am, since you ask I'll tell you; it is ’cause I ha’n’t got script To pay my fare and ride in railroad-car. My pocket bein’ empty, clean, and stripped. Whore am I goin’f God knows, ma’am—l don’t; I Blurted out to see if I conld find A job. so I conld cam a dollar-bill To buy a livin' for those left behind. And am I married? Tee, ma'am, that I are; If havin’ one what loves me as her life, What’s joined and sticks to me through thick and thin. Is bein' married, then I have a wife. And have we children? Tee, ma'am, that we have. For Mary—that's her name—has got a boy, • As likely lad as ever tripped to school,— The kind what fills a father's heart with joy. Have wc just one ? Ko, ma’am, there is another, A bine-eyed pet, but she's among the blest; Tet somehow, ma'am, I think she’s often near Me when 1 feel gone-like and am distressed. What can Ido ? Well, ma’am, most anythin’ What's decent; eawin', splittin', loggia 1 wood, If nothin' else, as long's I money earn. Which to my family! send home conld. What is my trade ? lam a joiner, ma'am; But business is so doll, and jobs so few, That, in the city, men are loafin' loose Around the streets, caase they've got naught to do. Where do I sleep ? Well, ma'am, most anywhere; When night o'ertakes me, or I fagged-out get, In some old bam or hay-stack I sleeps sound; *Tis then I feels the presence of my pet. And am I hungry ? Ma'am, to tell the truth, A thing ain't passed my Ups since yesterday, Except this pebble which I sucks for thirst. And one raw turnip picked up on the way. What? Come inside, and have a bite to eat! O thank yon, ma'am! I'm sure pet cherub Bess Has influenced yonr heart with pity for Her father, and yonr soul she'll truly bless. Ton’ll gi l me a bed? If nnderncath yonr roof, To rest my played-out form, my head I lay, Ton'll entertain another guest besides, For my pet angel won't be far away. And yon will hire me? Nowyou're talking, ma’am; That tickles me more than to sleep or eat; For I would rather earn all I get, ma’am; 1 neither am a beggar or a beat. Some wood to split? All right I Off goes my coat, To show I am no loafer or a scamp; Til sweat to win my family their bread, Although to do so I am called a tramp. Chicago, Jane 3, 1876. Malcolm Taylor. A FRAGMENT. The curtains of bight have been parted asunder And looped aftay gently by fingers unseen; The light of the Sabbath, all lamoent and golden, Is flooding the earth with its glitter and sheen. I sit by my window and look on the landscape, All robed in its brightest and richest array. And think of the Goodness that gave ns the Sab bath, That priestcraft and statecraft shall ne’er take away. While thus I am sitting, I give to my thinking Loose rein, like su horseman who trusts to his steed; And off speed my thoughts like a squadron of troopers. Oatstripping the swift-flashing lightnings in speed. k They reach in an instant the home of a lady As pare and as bright as the angels above; Then, like unto pilgrims whose journeys are ended, They pleasantly linger in ’lorementa of love. If I coaid bnt follow my thoughts in their journey, And rest where they rest, and behold what they see, * I'd be by the side of the one only lady Whose presence gives infinite pleasure to me. Td walk by her side as she walks in the garden, And tell her a story six thousand years old, Tet new as the dawn of this beautiful Sabbath, Each time that this exquisite tale has been told. I never may hope for the realization Of all my wild fancy has pictured to me; Fm destined to grope, as in shadows that linger Long after the sun has gone down to the sea. I’m in a dark valley, environed by mountains. Whose summits with glaciers are heavenward piled, Where howling of tempests and screaming of eagles Conspire to make them terrific and wild. long to discover a pass in the moon tains. And thence to escape from thin valley of gloom. And walk with her always in life's upward path- way. Surrounded by beanty, and fragrance, and bloom; And, when oar short pilgrimage here shall be ended. To walk with her still, up the bright, shining way, And dwell In the City of God and Bis angels, That swings like a planet in unending day. Chicago. 111. H. w. Robt.

The counter bnaiucss of the hanks was heavy as usual on Saturday, but the transactions of the day la local finances snowed no change in the essential features of the situations. Collections have been steadily improving for some time past, particular ly in the country, and the deposits of the banks have been steadily rising. The discount lines have not at the same time kept pace with the increase in loanable means. The market has consequently been growing easier. This state of affairs is nat ural and usual at this time of year, and excites no reibark, except that it is “more so” than in ordinary years. The currency movement to country has fairly set in, after haring been waited for some time. The ap plications of regnlar and occasional borrowers for loans have been light, and there is on all sides a sharp demand for good negotiable paper. Bates of discount are S®lo per cent at the hanks to regnlar customers and lower to independent bor rowers. On the street, paper goes at 6®lo per cent. New York exchange sold between banks at a dis count per SI,OOO of 75@80c. The orders from the country for currency were well sustained. The clearings of the week were reported by Man* ager D. B.

Parties In the trade hero have advices from the country which lead them to expect that the receipts on Lake Michigan daring the coming week will be the heaviest known in the history of the trade. Is it not about time that some greater security were thrown around receipts for provisions in ware boose than at present exists? The value of the provisions now in store here is at least doable that of all the grain in Chicago, and the number of firms issuing such receipts for pork products Is greater than the number of those issuing grain receipts. In the lesser case, a system of registration is consider ed to be all important, and has been in force for some half a dozen years. In the greater case, a great deal is taken on trust, and some fine morning the people may wake up to a recognition of the fact that that great deal Is too much. An effort to effect a change now might prevent serious loss at some time in the future, The leading prodace markets were'steadier on Saturday, with rather less doing. Provisions were easier, and wheat stronger, chiefly in the latter part of the session. The receipts of grain were again large, by comparison with the average of May, and the shipping movement rather quiet.

The fntnrc of the Turkish situation is still a source of great anxiety in commercial circles. There was little change in the market for domes- tic dry goods. Business was quiet in most depart ments and only moderately.active in any, bat the aggregate distribution was about up to the average for this stage of the season, and few complaints were heard. Prices are steady and firm. The de mand for groceries was libera), and for most arti cles the market preserved a steady tone. Coffees are neglected, and show u ten dency to go lower. Teas hre in increased demand and are held with more confidence. The batter trade was less active than daring the earlier days of the week, and holders found some difficulty in negotiating at former figures, hat sales did not show any quotable decline.

EOS PRODUCTS—Were quiet, and generally weak, though the resulting decline In prices was small as compared wKh that of some recent days. The receipts of bogs were small, but that Is usual on Saturday, and the hog market ruled dull, with apparently little con fidence In the future of prices. There was some In quiry for meats for shipment. Outside of that buyers held off, there being few orders here, and local opera tors stood aloof.

WHEAT—Waa rather less active, and advanced iftc per bu, though the receipts were again large, and ex pected to Increase during the coming week. Liverpool waa reported firmer, with a demand In excess of the supply, and New York was firmer at the dose under a good Inquiry for export. It was also telegraphed from New York that the exports of the week forom that port alone were 1,186,000 bu, most of which la believed to have gone to the Continent of Europe. The receipts here during the past week have averaged over 106.000 bu per day. Including a partial holiday,but that aggregate Is exceeded about 180,000 bn by tbe shipments, leaving but a little more than 800,000 bu of all grades In store. These facts caused an advance, but tbe speculative ele ment was relatively weak, notwithstanding. Tbe op tion trading was chiefly for July, tbe premium for which recoded to ftc as compared wltnJunc. The shipping demand was apparently quiet, but it was redly good, and caused cash lota to command a premium of ftc over the current price for tbe month, so that there was no premium on carrying Into July.
