The majority of them wear white cotton stock ings, without those dirty pantalets which you see bobbing about the ancles of our women, and they havo too much good sense under an affected modesty to lit their clothes draggle in tho mud : but they raise their skirts a little, and you will see them elegantly dressed, and walking iiiruugn, nuu cross nr tue muuuiesi streets in the rain, aud not a speck of dirt upon their stockings. I wish our ladies at home could take tome lessons from them. Another thing show their good sense. They all, in walking, wear pattens or thicksolcd shoes, as thick as cork soles, or else f;.iIoilies. India rubbers are not teen. They iaic another practice which I greatly admire. They seldom wear false curls; but women whose hair Is gray wear it gray, and teem to take as much naiu with, and as much pride In their silver locks as thu younger one do In thcirauburn trcssea. I have met with a good many ladies in company, but I do not find them to differ greatly from those I left at home, among the welt cd. ucated cI.viqi. Manners aro certainly much more a tudy than with us, and, upon tho whole, make society much mure agreeable for they aro not put on for tho occasion, but grow up with llicra as a mailer of course. Every thing in society proceeds much more quietly than with u,'. From what I can see, tho English women must bo excellent housewives, as nothing can exceed the neatness and comfort of their establishment.

Etlltorlal CorrespeHtlcBce, New You, May 7, 1849. Another long and tedious stonn commenced on Saturday, and ha continued without intermission. It was preceded by weather as fickle and changeable as the favors of the most heartless coquette. Night of Intense heat, succeeded by a wintry blast; one day under cloaks, and shivering with cold, and the next uncomfortably warm, with the lightest summer dress. But neither the heat or cold, or dost or stonn, interrupt the morning flow and evening ebb of the tide of human beings through Broadway. There Is food for the curious and for the moralist In watching the never ceasing current through this great thorougluira. All day long, and all night too, for that inttter, the street is thronged with men and wornin hurrying along, intent upon tome object of business or pleasure. There is, to a stranger, a feeling of loneliness and sadness in looking out ipon this great multitude of hit man being, and feeling that not one among them ha the least regard or care for you, and that if sickness or death should overtake you, not one of tlieui would turn aside to minister unto you, or know or care for your fate. If, standing aloof, aa an Indifferent spectator, one could look Into tho bosoms of the mass who pass along, and perceive the feelings, motives and objects of each indtv tdual, what a diversified picture in human lifu would be discover. The miser to adJ to his wealth, the poor to avoid start at'ion, the spendthrift to buy pleasure, the homeless and destitute to find a refuge, tho fash' ionabto woman to see and be Ken, and the rag' gevl ono to Leg or ileal these, and all other conceivable vanations of character, objects and conditions, jostle each oilier in the crowd, but atloflbcuiliaveone thing In common. Notoue of thera Is In possession of what lie wanls to complete Lit happiness, but the happiness of each one consists, not iu what he has, but in the hope of attaining something that Is beyond. Though many, and perhaps tnott of thrm, have secured that which they once looked forward to as the darling object of life, yet the happiness lhay an-ticipntcd Is not found In It, but is seen In some- it.;nM ,:ti r. - 1 ll ..... c 1 1.. .n .11 -PT of bTe, a. to worldly object,. con! of them. I met yetttrday, in Broadway, a young man who came to ibii city tight year ago from the country, for the practice of law. He wa a young man of fine talent, and hid fair to win for himself wealth and reputation. I bad lost sight of him for two or three years, and when I met him yesterday, he wet staggering along Broadway to drunk be could scarcely keep hit feet I hardly knew him he wu to bloated and blotched with liquor, ami to thabbily dressed. He told me he wu about going back to the country, nhero he came from, and thai his fata lly had already gone. I remember hi wife. bride, the ornament aqd charm of the society In which she moved, brought up In affluence and luxury, and seeing nothing in thu future but love and hapHncs with tho husband of her choice. But alas I for her fond hopes. The demon of Intemperance has blighted them alL In a few yean, it has changed tho affect lonitc and happy husband into a drunken tot, whom the will tw.K.lijaiuaw.aianl'a fcca rrpt Wm of hit property and character, and driven her forth, heart-brukeu, to seek a charitable shelter among her friends. This Is the every day result of Intemperance, and ytl, some ladies wonder what Ihey have to do with Temperance Societies. The fate of many among my own early school associates furnishes an emphatic warning of the dangers that lurk in moderate dnnking. Three of them, at least, have gone in early manhood to a drunk aid' grave in this cily. They were all mem-here of tha legal profenion, and of more than ordinary talents. One of them was for a time member of the Lvgiihture of this State, and all of them engaged In successful and lucrative prac tice. When in arlavj, an ,lnrtf part of their professional life, Ihey would have ridiculed and resented the idea that their occa' aional social glass would ever make them drunk' ardt, a much as your moderate drinker do now- a-days, and like them, they doubtless looked down with pity and contempt upon Ibe poor drank anls in the street. What if some socr had whispered in their can, " You shall ono day be like the drunken wretch whom yon now loathe arod despise" with what defiant emotions would Ihey tiavo regarded luni I 1 lave no other feeling for the drunkard than commiseration.
