The New Frauk Drees. Notwithstanding the unqualified approval given by a portion of the proas fur the universal adoption of the Turkish costume by the young women of America, it is an incontrovertible fact that those who have hitherto exhibited themselves in our fashionable thoroughfares, decked in the new style of dress, are female* of very questionable character. Every night and evening, for the last week, some of these nymphs have perambulated Broadway, the Bowery, and others of the aaoet frequented streets; and, from their lascivious airs and bold atti tudes, ths class to which they belong can be easily di vined. No virtuous female, who appreciates that re tiring modesty and unassuming grace which can alone adorn her sex, and elevate her in the eyes of the moral and good, would venture out, unaccompanied and un protected, in the most densely crowded thoroughfares of New York, bedecked in a garb which renders her the conspicuous object of rude and obscene comment by the licentious and vulgar?the theme of disgust and con tempt by those who are capable of estimating woman by those unmistakable qualities which are the true sym bols of a chaste mind and moral bearing. If a style of dress, originating with loose morals and a desire to attiaot the gaze of the multitude, is to usurp the place of that for ages worn by the mothers and daughters of America, as well as by the female portion of every other part of the civilised and refined world, we are much mistaken iu cur estimation of the good sense and moral character of the present generation of Ameri can women. l'robelily there is not one in the whole category of th present-day humbugs that has a more demoralising ten 0< ucy than the attempted revolution in female dress; and, viewing it in that light, we feel it our duty.to expose to public censure every new exhibition of such disgust ing and luring displays on our public thoroughfares, as being dangerous to good morals, and subversive of virtu ous sentiments in the minds of both males and females, flie actions of two young dames who paraded Broadway and Hudson street on Thursday afternoon, were suffi cient to make virtue recoil from the contemplation of such revolting scenes. One of them was encased in a loose frock cout, that came down to the knees, with loose leggings tied round the ancle*, in the full Chinese fashion. The coat and pantaloon* were ot maroon color. She wore a large gipsey list, decorated with costly rib bons. Slid carried a sieuder white csne in her baud, which she twirled in the sir with all the l>"ld confidence an 1 self conceit of the most vaingl-rious Broadway fop The other, though dressed in a similar style, seemed rather to rbrink from public view, while her companion, by Imr looks, sirs, and gesture*, studied to attract the attention of all who passed tier Such is a faithful description of one cf the New York ladies that have adopted the new costume, so much lauded hv the fanatical ami uaprin lim is to t cipled of both sexes, whose aim is to subvert tin- founda tion of order, decency, and rectitude; and if thUdete-'ti ble movement is not crushed in the germ, by the press and by public opinion, we may soon expect to gee y; ung wt men. not only with frock coats, pantaloons, and ailwr headtd canes, parading Broadway, but alto pufti ig Segars and in every other way assuming the external peculiarities that chararti rise the swells of the opposite sex. To such young men as the'? Student of Nature,'' who at tempted to lecture in Hope Chapel on Wednesday evening, we would offer a few words of salutary admooitiou. If they cunnot find employment in New York more useful and more in accordance with the design of their creator than to dictate to an audience what in inner of dress the women < f America should wear, let them go among hire farmers, aud learn to hoc potatoes and mow hay. or be take them reives to the wilderness with their ?xa upon their shoulders, by either of which means they can turn their exertions so some honorable account, both for their own gocd and that of their country. Of It P-ALTIMORB CORRKapONDENCK. Baltimore. June 14.18.11. Our city, especially the ft male portion of it. was thrown into great exciteuwut yesterday afternoon, by the ap pearance on Baltimore street, of a female dressed in a complete suit of the Bloomer or Turkish drees. The material of which It was composed, was pea-groen silki and the tunic extended to the knees. The trowsere were made of the same material, with a band around the ankle, and a neat flttiug gaiter boot on as fine a spec'.m 'a of foot and ankle as ever appeared on Baltimore street. 8be wore a Jenny l.ind hat. with a profusion of curls, and the body of ber dress had a roiling collar, dlaoi* ing a beautiful worked cbimisette. with standing collar' and plnld silk 'kerchief There is no mistaking the fact that she presented a moat charming appaaraace. at oo<-e neat and modest, and was universally admired. She passed up and down the street with the eyes of thousands upon her. ace< mpsnied by a female in the long skirt dross and Bounce- by way of comparison, apparently tak ing no notice of the excitement she was producing ; but on ber turning down South street and into Lovaiy lane, the whole matter was understood as an advertisement for one of the fancy establishments in that locality. (Trotn the Boston Traveller June By - . ^ Bloomei ism is evidently in th* ascendant From every quarter We hear of ladies who have had the courage? some call it the manliness?to assume the new dress. As s general thing, these are isolated rases?it being only here and there, in any community, that a lady is willing to run the gauntlet i f prejudice and gaping curiosity ? an ordeal to wtirh the adoption of any material change in costume is neci ssariir exposed Lowell, however at we are credibly Informed, is rapidly becoming a per*-ct Blcomerdom; and already the new dross is'the ruiiog fashion A gentleman who was in the city of spindles and spinsters yesterday, informs u>. upon his honor as a bachelor, that he saw as many as fifty very protty ladies, sdomi d with the Bloomer cnetuuic.

Thuae pre liminaries being arranged, aeveral of thoae present ad drersed the meeting, when It appeared that considerable difference of opinion existed among them as to the ad visihtlity of snch a course. ICx-Alderman Underwood said that rouaiderable inconvenience would arise if th* measure were carried out. and Jae much doubt*<d ltd practicability Mr Alden J . Spooner followed, and ia ? very elo?|nent address c mbattcd the argument Of thw Vast speaker, and urged the rights of Brooklyn, dwelling on the rapid and unprecedented increase in bar popula tion. extent and importance Aid) rnian Smith, who like Mr Underwood spoke from the body of the meeting, next rose, and in a plain u4 matter of fart atyie. proceeded to point ont the inooa veaienec that would result, if Brooklyn werea separata jxirt of entry, lie said every eraft carrying over phM valne. would have to he cleared befor* she eonld cross Mm Kast river to New York, and scarcely a ferry boat could make a trip without being under the same obligation. Where were the merchants ' lie believed that there wan but one importiug merchant in the city. They musk therefore send their goods over to New York, and foe tl>at would require permits This railed up Col. C. J. Jack. Counsellor, who wa* much astonished at the observations of the AMeranany and begged to t* 11 bim.that be knew nothing of tks p< wer< r Can fives to remove all the difficulties to whioh be had alluded. A bill could, and would, be prepared and passtd to remove them, and there was no reaaom in fact why Brooklyn with her hundred thousand inhaU tenis should remain completely overshadowed by her mere powerful neighbor At the close of the Colonel's speech there were lead calls for " Greenwood'' When the Judge roue, and after < bserving that though much Interested in the rjuee tion: he had not come intending to say anything upoa it; he proceeded to oontend that many advantage* would accrue to Brooklyn from the measure. Bhe waa already the 1-eveuth city in the Union, and yet its separate and independent existence us a city was scarcely knows to the general government, or to the rest of the world. The Alderinun had stated there was but one importing nieichant in it. but lie wanted to see a huudred. (Cheers ) He would support the measure, because ha thought it was justly due to Brooklyn to give the charac ter and name that she ought to have, if she was to be aa indt | rodent city at all.
