GENERAL SHERMAN'S CAMPAIGN--OUR ARMY ENTERING RESACA, GEORGIA, ON MAY 16, 1864.—[SKETCHED BY THEODORE R. DAVIS.]

GEN. SHERMAN'S CAMPAIGN.

WE give on this page a picture of GENERAL SHERMAN'S ARMY ENTERING RESACA, GEORGIA, on the 16th of May, from a sketch made by T. R. Davis from the rebel fortifications. The columns on the left of the picture are the troops of General HOOKER; those of the centre, General PALMER'S command ; and those winding down on the far right, the corps of General LOGAN.

FASHIONS FOR JUNE.

WITH the return of June all the light descriptions of dress material have been restored to their wonted favor in the Parisian world of fashion. Muslins, foulards, poplins, and light silks come in for an equal share of popularity. Violet still retains its sway ; and violet, light green, black, white, and havannah will be the " couleurs de predilection" throughout the summer. Deep flounces are to be

given up for the time being; if any flounce, only a very narrow one can be permitted at the bottom of the skirt. The corsages vary much in shape. Small bonnets have succeeded to the highly-elevated and richly-ornamented chapeaux. Some of the latest novelties in the way of bonnets are without the ordinary bavolet, a floral ornament replacing that portion of the capricious article of toilet. It is now quite the mode to wear a small lace veil—the loup, as it is called, descending as far as the nose,

THE ILLUSTRATIONS.

Fig. 1. Walking Dress.—Dark lilac poplin robe, trimmed with black passementerie ornaments. The corsage is cut in the style known as the Corsage Imporatrice, without seam.

Carriage Dress.—Slate-colored moire antique robe, trimmed with violet ribbon, fastened at intervals by bows of the dress material; the sleeves are similarly ornamented. Rice chip bonnet, edged in front with a trimming of black lace, and provided, on one side, behind with a violet bow and green leaf; a small bouquet of green leaves is also placed upon the violet silk bavolet.
