The ladies.

Our streets are again beginning to be refulgent with the elegant forms and lovely faces of our Richmond ladies.--Heretofore the swarms of soldiers in our midst have prevented their usual promenades, but with the military exodus of the last week the fair portion of creation have again burst the chrysalis of retirement, and are flitting like butterflies along our thoroughfares. The Capitol Square especially is like a Garden of Eden on a small scale, barring of course animals, ‘"sarpints"’ and fig leaves.
