THE ILLUSTRATIONS.

Fig. 1. Walking Dress.—Gray poplin robe, trimmed on the body and skirt with black dentated velvet and long chenille fringe, disposed in the manner shown in our Illus-

Rose colored velvet bonnet, ornamented with flowers on one side only ; the shellpiece depicted in this Figure forms at the same time the crown and the bavolet.

Fig. 2. Ball Dress.—Robe of white tulle over satin skirt ornamented with a deep ruched flounce. The sortie de bal (to which the name of the Harouda has been given) is an ample cashmere rotonde, embroidered with red cash Mere representing branches of coral. The trimming round the edge is composed of black and white velvet balls, from which depends a fringe in white yak. The

cordeliere is a mixture of gold, red, and white, and is also provided with the worsted chainettes and yak fringe. Fig. 3. Carriage Dress.—Brown velvet robe, buttoning behind throughout. The principal feature of this Figure is the Recamier pardessus, in velvet, ornamented with passementerie trimmings. The simplicity of this small pardressus readers further explanation unnecessary.
