--The London Illustrated News, containing the fashion plates, has active at Mobile, through the blockade — from which, according to the Tribunes, it would appear that the costume of the ladies is returning to a simple style. Hoops are assuming rational dimensions, and the ball room dress, compared with the past styles, is almost denuded of ornament. This change is especially true in relation to street consume.--Trains have entirely disappeared. The dress fells hardly below the article, leaving the whom foot exposed. This last will be particularly welcome to these who have pretty feet, as well as to the rougher men. The fashion of trained for promenade is as unreasonable as it is slovenly. Those who adopt it scarcely look sleekly after a short walk in the streets.
