The B^qik.?The most sensible and graceful style ever adopted by woman, lor dressing her charms corporate, is that of the ba&tjue and skirt. Deny it as aucianl ladies way, there is a point, de fined every day by affectionate husbands, loyinj brothers, and accepted lovers, with an encircling arm, which forms a natural division of tfce dress of a woman. The waist is one and the skirt is ano ther. No angel should ever deform a waist? no point behind, or point before The rounded outline above and below the natural point of cincture should be preserved, and no contrivance hat ever done it^o well as the ba-sque. _ .Besides, it gives an opportunity for any required contrast or harmony in the skirt, stopping stripes at the point where they ought to btop, and breakiug up, eauiouvzing. dis'nbuung an<f inditidu ."tlizing clwu ras that were else contained in the folds of a uniform?a broad, long iconotourtus waste of silk, merino, mus lin, and calico.?Springfield Republican.
