would doutbtless be both novel ad Interesting to

daily journeying about the clty. and for those ac
customed to sedeetery pursuits the trip would
possess nothing of that fatiguing monotony which
it gradually assumes for him who, day in day out,
In rain or shine, cold or sultriness, most foot it

a aging, after walking ten squares, to enter some
public office, see the incumbent just where you
have seen him a hundred times before at precisely
the same hour of day, ask him what there is new

for your pains. But, oe the other hand, there is,
it most be confessed, a world of satisfaction for

Sa m the nmotnlg. Let us first go to the police sta
s tion. w hich may be said to be the great nucleus
, for intelligeace, i. e., police intelligence. .Enter
y first by the side door, on Lafayette street, the lit.
ir tie room used as station office. With the liberty
of one privileged, push open the gate in the rail
d i g, which cute off the office proper, inside of
which are the clerk sad turnkey. The former's
d duty is to record the arrests in a volume so large
I that a strong man would find it no fun to carry it.
He ablo keeps account of the property taken from
tIe perscns of prisoners and consigned to him for
safe keeping. The turnkey is he who gently
relieves each unfortunate new arrival of whatever
weapons or valuables he has about him, and then
Stfficiates as his Twer dur to the dingy dungeon
wn ithin. We look on the book and see what arrests
o have beet made, what casusities reported. Ordi.
Il nary drunks or larcenies or assaults are passed
by unnoticed, for they are as numerous as mos
qoltoes after sun-down.
But if there is afforded by a glance at the book
any inkling of matters more important, then. after
a squeesing out by inquiry all that the two officials
kudw about it, let us basten out along the hall to
the front corner room, the ante room to the
superintt ndent's office. Here you may see seated
half a dozen special officers, aids or detectives,
of all waiting orders. Ir a corner upon a desk is a
n paper file. and toward it the reporter i-conti
0- neant; rushes, for there are to be found the die
patches received from about town over the police
at telegraph wires. Having given this all due atten
tion. we pas in through the green lattice door to
the office of Capt. Cain, wlo, seated II a eomfort
able arm chair behind a table in the center of the
room, informs you that the city ii reported quiet,
rd and gives you further, very obligingly, any little
matters of interest that may have come to his
e. knowledge. Back of him an open door communi
ed cates wi h a litt'e dark room, in which, if you are
to anythirg of a physiognomist, you may amuse
ct yourself by a study of the faces and heads in the
to rogues' gallery.
But the Recorder's Court is in session up stairs.
We mount two flights and enter the sacred pre
n cincts. "Take off your hat," says an officer at
he the door. A crowd of people. black, yellow and
white, fill the lobby. Inside the bar are the law
yers, the witnesees, the clerks and the court offi
cers. At the other endl of the room, within a
fenced inclosure called the dock, are all the pri
t soners awaiting examination. Whew! there are
some seedy specimens among them; and there are
of ohers who look as if they had no business to be
he there at all. But our buoiness is not with them,
ed but with the clerk, who allows as to look over the
tst affidavits, and glean from them any facts of interest
wr they may contain.
Leaving the court room, and taking a brief look
In at the police commlssioner's office, located in
a the third story front of the building, we pass out
ma again on Lafayette street, and crossing its cobble
rer stones, painful to thin soles, enter the City Hall
basement. On either side are the offices of the
kg- tr.asorer and controller, and to the left, on the
ei cross corridor beyond, is the street commissioner's
ire business habitation. Turning to the right one sees
rk the Fire Alarm Telegraph office, with its rows of

the come to the mayor's offlce, where may be obtained
et, frr m time to time information of whatever new
ras matters of public interest in regard to ci'y affairs

where MSr. Ilcros, the lilra-i·a, is always courte

A Cnaaucra.-There is a woman who much
frequents Canal street, and its adjacent streets.
whom many of our readers must aere this have 1
noticed. bhe is apparently 35 or 40 years of age,
of medium height, gaunt, spare features, evi.
dently pinched by hunger and want. She is
dressed nl a faded black calico, with a bonnet
once rich but now battered and worn, and dis
colored by rain and sun ; on her hands are always
gloves, either black silk or kid, very muooh worn.
no finger tips to them, but evidently worn as
relics of the appearance their wearer used to
make. She carries a small umbrella, very much
torn, and of no account under heaven, but whioh t
she aways holds open like a parasol. She never I
begs. she never speaks to any one, she never I
goes into any s'ore, but seems to be always walk. t
ing nu and down Canal street. She first arrested
the ttention of the writer of this about two
months ago, when the Legislature was in session,
whtn she was to be -ren every day about noon in
the ielnbborhood of the corner of Patlippa and
('anal streets. Since then he has seen her nearly
every day-always the same, always looking
hungry, and wistful, and tired; always walking
aboot, never resting, seeming to have no object
and no purpose-a dreary, aimless, harmless sort I
of a being. About ten days ago he missed her;
for Scme time her accustomed haunts were with
out her ; but yesterday there she was is her usual I
place, on Canal near utrysdes, looking the same
as ever, oLly a trifle thinner, her hat a tifle more
rtattered, and her gloves a little more out at the
What a story may nit this woman have ! Her
whole appearance is such as to justify the sunp
position that she had seen happier days-days
when, perhaps, in the cosy home circle, shielded
from the very winds of heaven by those who
loved her, are may have quaffed the full nup of I
hapj ines,. and lived honored, respected and joy
fol-only to come to pace the streets of a great
city, alone, and not worthy of a second glance
from the dames in silk and satin who pass by on
the other side. O ! what a homily is the appear

down the great boulevard amidst the throngs of
gay pleasure seekers, who. intent cr.ly upon self,
cannot waste even a thought on the pitiable look

now can judge, once like them. Will they eve
be as she is now ? We would we knew who the
woman is. Her history is, we warrant, a varied
and interesting one.

_torn H, ,rnded --IThe coiuer of Orleans and Dau
phin streets was yesterday afternoon the scene of
one of those distressful occurrences which star
tle a who'e community, and by which a most
amiable lady lost her life.
The following report is made from the mos re
liable source attainable:
Between 2 and :; o'clock yesterday afternoon a
pa, ty conesting of the notorious Johnny Snapper.
John 'Torpy, atiasToby, lied Smith, a man named
Prendergast, the two last named said to have
been released but yesterday morning from the
city work-house, and George Deno, a seafariag
man, met in front of the cabaret kept by Thomas
Arato, at the corner of Orleans and Dauphin
streets, northeast corner, but commonly known
as Anne Hamilton's place, all apparently In
The conversation is said to have been about a
a difliculty which took place between Toby and a
man named Holly, in which the former was
bl ghtly wounded on the head by a pistol ball, and
resulting in the incarceration of the latter in the
l'arih Prison. The party went into the coffee
house to take a drink at the bar, then In temporary
charge of oneCharles E.tevan, or btevano, during
the absence of Arato. Ettevmn is said to be the
paramour of ALnie Hamilton, who lives In a hovel
across the way, on Dauphin street. According to
one account some dispute arose between Estevan
and the party about paying for the drintks, and
hence the difficulty.
But another version is that the row commenced
with the womuan Annie, in the house at the time,
who, taming up an ice pick, aimed a tremendous
blow at the head of Deno, and succeeded in in
tiring a severe wound in his neck. A shot was
ired, and the party rushed out on the Orleanso
street lsidewalk: two more shots were then fired,
but without injurrng the men engaged in the row.

the report of the general committee appointed
at the preliminary meeting held on the 24th nit.,
to effect an organlizaton.
'I he meetming was organized by calling to the
chair an old and wellaknown fellow-dtw.ea, the
Bon. James P. 'reret, who briefly and pointedly

address, in which hlie illustrated by facts and fig

he considered no more sha a debtef $600 to a
man owtng $60.000. The resourceso of the city
was equal to $I00.000,000, sad a debt eof $86.
0tx,O00 would be but a trile. The debt of the
,itt of New York wu estimated to be two-thirds
of the assPesd value of the property, and there
was no diffiunlty. He thet stated the diliculty in

dence. What then was the remedy. Not by rerist
nIIg the legal aot. but the Illegal, which you are
called upon to resist. What prevents ou from
workin intbi enterprise? Nothing except unity
of action. In answcr to the apprehensions of
some that the amociation was got up for the pir
pose if creatintg cffices, he would msay it was no
such thinr. On the contrary, the neaee of the
gentlemen comprisinlg the asscatioa were a .uar
antee sgainst such a idea. He then hoped that
all would ounite and go to work. so that no im
proper nor illegal burthenas be placed upon them.
I he motion to adopt and ratify the action of
the provioanal organiztion was then adopted.
The clhaman of the meeting teen introduced

the purposes of the association in a manner that
