An Epistle from an Old Bachelor ?Mr. Editor : I see by yesterday s Star t? at your amiable correspondent ''Clarinda complains of the '-dreadful state of the streets."' 'wh'ch preclude* us,:' she says, "from enjoying our customary nroinenad* s through the eity ; and when we lift our drcs-e? just to avoid the con sequences of drabbling them in filth, a dozen or so of impudent young bucks are always con gregated at the corner making iheir invidious remarks, and staring at what they are pleaded to ft rtu ???ir immodesty." Now, Mr. Editor, I think another remedy in.ght be suggested. If our fair city belles would but uso the scissors ami cut their dresses the proper length, they would have no need to 41 lift" them to keep th-m '? from drabbling in filth " The streets may be filthy at times, and no doubt are; but I wish to say to you privately that I have seen these same city belies ?' lift their dresses at times where the streets were as dry and as clean as a house fl.?or which I cannot but look upon as an act of shameless " immodesty." But you will say that I, oi l bachelor that I am. look uj?on the fair creatures with envious eyes. Pernaps so; but they should bear in mind that th?y pass a thousand just such eyes in the streets wherever they go. An Old Bachelor. Washixgton, Aug. 31, 1355. GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE. Georgetown, Sept. 3, 1855.
