POLITICAL. OCT, 14, 1872, TO RENT. FINANCIAL. STOVES. &c. MEETINGS. A. P A. BOSTON. The Newest Boston Notion— The Women’s Course of Lectures. The First Lecture—Our Correspondent's Ex> perience. A View of tbe Strong-Minded—A Sister Loses Her Bonnet. Special Correspondence of The Chicago Tribune, Boston, Oct. 7,1872. Your correspondent gave Saturday afternoon to the Women's Lecture at the Institute of Technology, and a brief acocunfc may interest Western readers.' Tbe history of these lectures is a little oat of the common line. It appears that James T. Fields and Phillips Brooks, moved by compassion for the beauless women of - Bos ton and vicinity who cannot enjoy the advantages of evening lectures, have upon themselves the fur nishing a course of Saturday afternoon free lectures for women only* A man is as strictly forbidden en trance as a woman at a town meeting. Some of the best foleut in the country been secured. Hr. 'Whip pie, .Curtis, Eobert Collyer, and Fields himself being in the list, not to mention “the Professor.” Last Satur day Mrs. Ednah J>. Cheney opened the course,—the occasion of which lam to speak. The large ball in the Institute is capable of seating nine hundred, and we bad looked for very ample accommodations, but, when we reached the entrance, some seven minutes after the doors were opened, we found every seat filled, the crowded, a steady stream of disappoint ed females taking their disconsolate departure from the building. 1 * Eager to see and hear we crowded our way in, much to the detriment of our crinoline (but then, as my /yimpaninn remarked, “No matter if you did say l Oh, my bustlel’ there was no man to bear yon ”), and get ting a very precarious footing' immediately in front of the platform, wo took a look at the very novel assem blage, really, I never expect to see one funnier. Whoever before saw a thousand women gathered, and never a man within sight or hearing! The absurdity seemed to strike everybody, for a very general grin overspread 'every countenance, save here and there where a strong-minded sister—lntent on righting her down-trodden sex—glowered in solemn indignation at the more frivolous majority. As a whole, it was a very well-dresaed audience, with less of the outlandish element than 1 expected, though now and then I spied a countenance which carried one sud denly hade to the earlier days of the strong minded household. Soon after, my. friend whispered. “Do tell that lady she's losing her bonnet, 1 * I turned,, involuntarily, and could have shouted when 1 saw one ineffable'party ■miHng benignly around her, croea»cyed, bland, and utterly unaware that her fly-away bonnet had slid com pletely off her head and was hanging, by a etretched oci elastic, down her back. Of course it was my neigh borly duty to ten her of it, and I performed it with an attempt at gravity which was overpowering, but, later in the afternoon, when I was out of ear-shot, I saw the remarkable head-dress fairing the same backward journey, and the pladd wearer as unconscious as ever, and that time, I laughed outright. The bonnet episode over, we followed the example of many other ladies, and mounted the platform where standing room was all we could expect, but the air was better and the position more comfortable. A friend had >w»n praising the personal charms of the fair lec turer and her becoming and tasteful style of dress, and, when Mrs. Cheney appeared, 1 looked with expectant eyes. Every day X realize the wisdom of advice, apropos of his European rambles: “ Never go and see what you have a pleasant ideal picture of in your mind.” With great respect for my judgment in other matters, I could not agree with her in the matter of Mrs. Cheney's clothes, which were just as Muggins and dowdy as these strong minded womento clothes always are. Her eyes were quite remarkable and her expression very pleasant. Otherwise she looked like a good strong washerwoman. She commenced her lecture in so low a tone that we were straining every nerve to hear, when a voice in our rear, stagey and tragic in Its tone, suddenly startled us with, “ Sit down, ladies; sit down, ladies. We can neither see nor hear ; n and we turned to see one of the strong-minded, who, having seated : herself on the steps of the platform, was necessarily very much below the level of the fifty or more of us who stood on the pisiform. Considering we had nothing in the world to sit on, it struck us as rather preposter ous ’Crf* be ChftffptXbhcty Emfimesedto -aik down, that one woman, who wouldn’t stand up, might see, so we kept our positions. But the strong-minded sis ter was not so easily subdued. As louder and loader grew the assertion, “We can neither see nor hear; we <r*n neither see nor hear,” till Mrs. Cheney was brought to a standstill, and forced to inform the ag grieved woman that when the audience was quiet there would be no trouble in hearing, and the seeing was a matter for which she was not responsible. Even this did not prove satisfactory, and again, as the lec turer resumed, came the simultaneous announce ment, “We neither see nor; bear,” till a very de cided manifestation of disgust from the audience cauAd the injured female to rise in dudgeon and mnrrn out of the hall. very much as children do when they “ won’t play ” any longer. Though our range of vision was a little more extensive, we might have made a FrfTniiar complaint about bearing, for though we stood very near the lecturer, we are, to this minute, in ignorance of her subject, and of her man ner of treating it. From sundry stray sentences that floated past my ears, 1 judge ** woman” and her lit erary powers and deserts constituted the burden of her theme. I heard her speak of old Mrs. Ripley, and say, “Of course she lived in Concord,” and I heard little more, and, finding my ears of little service, I gave my attention to observing the audience. Though the masculine portion of our sex were not so folly rep resented as I anticipated, it did peep out occasionally, much to our amusement. Once my friend and I ventured a whispered comment, brief, and os quiet as we could make it, but my sen tence was scarce begun when a sudden twitch nearly palled my overskirt off the
binding, and a very energetic pair of lungs gave utter ance to such an aspirated 11 Sh ” that I wonder Mrs. Cheney didn't jump as much as I did. Turning to face the foe, I beheld a masculine-looking female, with hands on hips, no gores in her dress, a “pug” the aim of a hen’s egg, eye-glass on nose, and a mannish looking hat stuck on her head in a decidedly independ ent manner. Her feet were planted wide apart, and her air was that of intense determination. In some anger my friend remarked that “she wasn’t going to *Sh * for that old ‘thing.” Bat even that speech was abruptly terminated by a forcible repetition of the ter rible sound, which 1 find it quite impossible to de scribe with pen and ink. Disgusted, I suppose, with ,our contiguity, this female Major General finally elboweoher way to the front, and planted herself in s belligerent attitude, where whispers could no more disturb her. I have thus gone into details mmy story, because a troTnon meeting was a novelty to me, and struck me as very funny, the inborn fight in woman’s natnee did come out so unmistakably here. I must be dre loyal to my sex, and say I do think a fair admixtureis mcn would very much have Improved that audien of And still, I think Ido full justice to the kindness ca. generosity of the two men who provided this rareand portunity for beauless womankind.

The fill openings of the past week have shown that our. merchants are ready with elegant stocks for the fall trade, and a review of some of the novelties offered will interest our Sunday readers. fiTBEET COSTUMES. For the promenade we have some of the most beau tiful goods on sale at the dry goods counters ever brought to the Wait, and they are nearly all imported 41roct from Paris, where business is resumed with all its old vigor and nicety of detail. The gloves all the dresses, the ribbons match the gloves, and ibe flowers match them all. The colors are quite new, or old ones modified. There are several new shades of brown,—cinnamon brown, chocolate brown, cigar,' chestnut, mahogony,’ euxr t cafe art lot/,— paler than formerly,—end the whole army of blues, among which are the Mexlque and the lovely peacock blue,—a shade that has the heaven above and the waters beneath the earth in it,—a lustrous sea-green and aky-hlne com bined, with s dash of opal light over it all. Then there is the ceil and the reseda, and all the greens, of which sage-green is the leading fashion for dress and bat. In two shades. Toad’s-back is only a new name for London smoke, another color that is intensely the mode. No bright color will be permi arable in a toil ette that is strictiy en regie . THE MATTBTAt. USED will be an the different rep goods, and rich, heavy rifts. The new colors are not yet dn pHcatedm cheap goods, so if we wear them at all we most have a rich fabric. I must except, however, the striped poplins. They are really cheap, being only 65 cents a yard, and they come in the new colors with a raised satin stripe. Of course, they wfil not wear like all all-wool goods, but they make up nicely for a season. Cashmeres in sage-green, and rtaeda win be much worn, trimmed with jet braid and yak lace; the latter fabric comes in color to suit. It follows the pattern of guipure laces, of which it ia a coarse worsted imitation. It ranges in price from 50 cents to $5, and is made of worsted thread supposed to have once been yak’s hair. It is much thicker and bravier than guipure. xas EBOCADE3> POTLWS art T-adfag goods and are designed for an upper gar? ment, tunic, or~ polonaise, with plain skirt to exact ly match in color and Tnwterial the plain part of the brocade. The pattern is large sprays of flowers on a plain ground. Those brocaded flowers or vines have a particularly soft, flossy look which gives a,very ricnappearance to the goods, which is worth from $1 to $2 a yard. Plates are given with each dress sold which show exactly how the garment is made. THE NEW BILKS for evening wear are all in those broadest patterns, or else are moire antique,—a fashion which‘will ob tain in ribbons as wall. The colors are magnificent. Cream, bluah-rose, peach, bronze-yellow, and lily, overlaid with clusters of superb brocaded flowers. Those rich fabrics are not cut up into the muititndi nous flowers and riffles of the promenade suit, but ore cut with long sweeping trains, and are trimmed with light velvets and lace applique. On a a tour of in spection, I found at Madame Stoughton’S a closet fun of such dresses, worth from SSCO to SI,OOO each. They were for a bridal trousseau, and will first be aired in Europe, with the single exception of the wedding and travelling dresses. The first is a superb white wa tered trimmed with folds cf dead-while patfp and falls of point lace. The waist is made with points in front and back; the skirt with a court tram sixty-five inches long, lined throughout with white crinoline, and faced with silk; the entire waist lined with white silk, the lace forming a berthe, caught up with orange blossoms back and front. A flounce of the point around the court train. The veil was of Brussels net, edged with D’Alencon lace. THE TRAVELLING DEXSS was of sage-green silk. In two shades, and of marvel lous richness. The flounces were piped with the second shade of the silk, edged with a cord of velvet in the first shade. The bock breadths were;trimmed with alternate flounces, graduated In width. At the side four narrow flounces were put on lengthwise; the wider ones in front to meet the short, open over skirt, with sash falling at the - side. The fpph ruffled in three rows with velvet pocket near the end, the lappel of which had a very heavy fall of jet fringe. The waist a postillion, very abort points, faced with velvet; velvet bretelles, edged with the jet fringe. A sailor bonnet in the two shades of silk and velvet, was made in folds and pipings; one long feather, half ostrich, with a tip of soft, green, fluffy feathers-and a spray of velvet and satin pansies with an end of formed the trimming. BONNETS,—OB BATS, if you please, since simply putting on strings makes the distinction,—are very pleasing to the eye this sea son. They are medium size, and are worn on the back of the head. Instead of being jammed down over the eyes, as hitherto. The Lucie is one of the loading shapes; it is a round-eared bonnet, with flaring front.

A magnificent Begoni, with tiny purplish blossoms, has great leaves veined with all the new* colors, and tinted with a beautiful autumn sunset light.

The elegant seal skin cloaks worn last winter have been improved upon for the coming season. The skin is cut to fit the form, and the jacket is made around the neck like a man’s coat, to wear open or close buttoned, with a rolling collar. Some of the nobbiest will be trimmed with narrow bands of sable fur. The cap and boa will be worn with them.
