New York Correspondence.
Improermntt in Boston .IrtAifcfural Iron mrus
Slone Audottrand to thrtc lnstitutiont AVat rort
ew York, Anff. 10, 1870.
Tlie hottest weeks of New York Enmmer
weather, thns fir, have been from about the mid'
die of June till near the end of July. The mor
tality in the city daring that time was preat ; bat
it seems to be capable of explanation by prevent
able causes. The numerous instances of sun
stroke occurred almost exclusively in cases in
which intemperance and over-exposure to the
sun. or the depressing influence of great heat.
were combined. Your correspondent escaped
most of this heated term by a judiciously-timed
vacation of near a month's length, passed in the.
eastern part of Massachusetts, in Rhode Island
and Connecticut. It would be interesting to
speak of the many physical improvements which
two years have worked in the older, as well as
the newer parts of Boston ; improvements that
promise, if persevered in a few years longer, to
put that city, architecturally, ahead of New
York. Boston etill builds her solid warehouses
and public buildings of stone, while .New York
indulges largely in iron, or uses the abomination
of stone supported by iron pillars, a mixture
that always reminds one of the image with "feet
part of iron and part of clay," that troubled the
dreams of Nebuchadnezzar.
There is a comfortable sense of solidity, strength
and endurance in granite and marble, and I might
almost say in brick, that pats to the blush the
mclalic impudence of iron, though yon cover it

mo to decry that metal, whose nses stamp this as
an age of nneqnaled material civilization. But
let the use of iron be confined strictly to the
sphere for which it it is fittpd. that of pure
utility, and let it not invade the domain of
(esthetics or art, until at least the laws of its
adaptation and management have been discover
ed. In its own domain, iron has its ten thousand
U3P3. But a copy in iron of the forms nppropri
ate to wood or stone is not architecture, and
when it offers itself, as a support, to pillar up
real work in stone, the latter only suffers from
the alliance. I might mention n score of impos
ing buildings in New, York in which this use of iron
has ruined them. I see also in the architecture of
Boston a quicker and more willing recognition of
the principle, without the arch there is no archi
tecture. It is particularly pleasant to see the
preference that is beginning to be given to the
pointed arch. The Sear3 building, standing on

without tho uso of the arch. The architects
were, perhaps, deterred from employing it by the
cowardly twinge of an economic conscience.

All strangers will be interested to learn that the

Andover. which we next visited, is the seat of
three institutions of learning, n Theological Sem
inary, " Phillip's Academy," and the " Abbott
Female Seminary."' The first offers, to those
who desire to pursue theological studies, advan
tages unsurpassed by any similar institution in
the land. " Phillips' Academy" still maintains a
liili reputation as a classical and preparatory
school ; while the lovely and accomplished stu
dents and graduates of the " Abbott Female
Seminary," the "fern temt." as they are affec
tionately termed by the male students of An
dorer, proved by their manners and their intel
ligence, as well as by tbe quality of their closing
exercises, which consisted in part of a remarkably
well executed calisthenic, or gymnastic perform
ance, that they were worthy of all the attention
and thought bestowed- npon them by their male
rivals, you may call them brothers, or cousins.
or lovers, if you please.
But, educationally considered, Andover is, par
eminence, a theological town. In spite of the
Bomewhat-Philistine camp of the " Phillips
Academy" boys, tbe social atmo'pbere of the
town is decidedly saturated with a tbenlugical
influence ; albeit the students and professor of
the same are -a most generous, cultivated, getial
and polite, as well as pious set of gentlemen." If
their creed savors too strongly for some, of se
verity, or their theology ton much of rigor, cer
tainly no one would find that fault with the
scenery of this most favored place, or with the
frequent magnificent sunsets, which, viewed from
" Sunset Rock," a wild ledge of great resort,
cause all speculative differences to vanish before
the contemplation of nature.

The Nathan murder is still a profound mystery;

drawn down the merited roouke of the press
upon that sheet.

On Monday last, took place the annual regatta
of the New York Yacht Club. Unusual interest
centered in this particular trial of seamanship
and sailing qualities, Tram the fact that the
English yacht Cambria was to take part in this
contest for the Queen's Cup, a massive piece of
silver ware, won by tho yacht America, on the
occasion of the annual regatta of the Royal
Thames Yacht Ciub, in 1851. The Cambria
.made a gallant, but, it must be said, by no means
a brilliant effort to add this trophy to her lanrels
won in the late trans-Atlantic race with the
Dauntless. The Magic was tbe winning yacht,

EnrtliTt orU in the War.
If reports from the Prussian seat of war are true.
the American system of temporary earthworks will
form.a large element in tho campaign. Says a tele
gram : "Tho territory of the Rhine provinces Is being
covered with earthworks of this description. Tho
land from Coblenti to Mayence is entirely cut up in
this fashion already." This lesson was taught to
Europo by tbe American war. Had Austria thrown
np temporary earth defences, she might hare long re
sisted the advance of Prussia, and perhaps saved her
self from a defeat so overwhelming as that of Sadovra;
but with an honorable, though mistaken self-confi
dence in her power to meet Prussia In tbe open field
with even numbers, she spurned this precaution, and
suffered for it. That Count Von Moltke should now
have adopted a policy of attack and defense, which,
if slower, is moch safer and surer than the old risk-
ful one, is an evidence of his quickness to appropri
ate new improvements in the art of nhich he has been
so close a student. If Prussia chose to remain wholly
on the defensive, making of all her assailable points
one vast connected system of earthworks, It is not
easy to see how France could whip ber. Over and
over again, the Confederates with far smaller forces
than ours, repelled our most determinrd attacks, be-
canso they were protected by earth barriers thrown
up perhaps, in a singlo night. It was tbe earthworks
manned by a thin line of troops, equally brave with
the masses which assaulted them, that checked Orant
in his protracted flank march npon Richmond ;
and it was only when the defenders bad been killed
off or worn down to comparatively a few thousand
men that tho immense Union army was ablo to burst
through their lines and take the Confederate capital.
The Prussians being not 'less bravo than the French,
ami baring forces equally' large and well supplied
with ammunition, provisions and all means of sus
taining a siege, we may infer from the experiences of
our war, that tbey are invincible on the defensive.
Were Prussia and ber allies intending merely to hold
what they now hate, risking nothing on the issue of
great battles unless forced upon them", they wonld ob
viously put France at a disadvantage which she had
probably not calculated on. Being the challenging
and assailing party, she must move on tbe enemy's
works. She cannot, without a loss of prestige, eon
tent herself with fortifying as tbe Germans are, and
keeping on the defensive too, limiting her only aggres
sions to those of her powerful nary on the North Sea
and Baltic ports. A war. so cautiously and ttmidlv
conducted on Ine patt of France, would not satisfy
that higb-spiritedi impulsive nation. Snch inaction
would endanger the Napoleonic dynasty, not merely
among tbe people, but In tho ranks nf the army itself.
It would be war with all its expenses and all Us losses
of life by the slow picking off of troops, with little of
its excitement and glory. Should Prussia have re
solved upon tbe plan of wearing out tho enthusiasm
and patience of ber mighty antagonist, who will say
that ber scheme Is not a wise one? But it is not
likely that a proud and essentially military nation
like Prussia will be- content to play so poor-spirited.
if judicious a game, in tbe war. It may be expected
that she will not avoid stand-up fights with the
French that In fact, she will seek them at times
and places where a preponderanee of forces, wbleh
every sagacious eommander seeks to hare with him
at tbe oritieal moment, gives her a reasonable assur
ance of victory.
But in attack as well as defense, temporary earth
works would be an all-important adjunct. In ease of
reverse, tbe Germans eaa fall back npon them and
thus prevent the issue of tbe battle from being as de
cisive as was that of Solferino or Sadowa. Napoleon,
we presume, was apprised of thij change of tactics,
in favor of tbe earthwork system, by Prussia, when
he issued bis address to lbs army, declaring that tbe
war would be " long and and hardly contested." As
suredly it will be, tbe Germans desin to make it so.
As a matter of course, tbe French will have to adopt
a similar system for their own protection and safety;
otherwise, they will be continually exposed to tbe fire
of the terrible needle-guns from behind tbe adraneiag
earth-works of the Germans. Ic is not improbable,
that in this war, as in our rebellion, both armies-will
always be burrowing toward each other's positions.
and that a considerable proportion of the losses will
be inflicted by sharp-shooters on both sides. This
tiresome bnsineis will ba. varied now and then by
desperate attacks npon each other's entrenehmenta.
Occasionally there will be great battles arising from
bold invasions, where armies will Lave to be met la

A party of gentlemen running to 0 ray's Station
yesterday, to Inspect a new model floating on the

the railway porter an idea which wonld serve him
to guide the excursionists to tbe spot they Bought.
Tbe chief of the party explained the kind of craft
whose whereabouts he wlshed-to And, and tbe man,
brightening up, hit It at last in the expression, "Ob,

three times the amount ultimately given him to row
the party off to the "thlnff"' which had oeen termed'

not proclaim a sailing morning-. From the high
wharf, tbe white hulled something looked, like a
huga star-fish with four rays, resting low on the sur
face of tbe Thames, with five main and mlrzea fore-and-aft
sails, and Jib, sunning themselves above the
back of tbe creature. One gentleman who had the
smell of the kitchen garden still about Mm, and who
hid never seen a star-fish, hinted tbat the a'fialr re
minded Mm rather of a peculiar kind of vegetable
marroy (tbe custard marrow) which be had carefully
watered at daybreak. ,Everybody agreed that the
article was a novelty; and the strongest expression
upon tbe faces of tbe boat load of visitors was un
doubtedly polite incredulity. Upon approaeclng
tbe craft. " Telegraph Station " was seen Inscribed ;
upon rounding her the words "Sea Refnge" ap
peared. The visitors walked gingerly over the up
per shell of one of the star-fish's rays, and were for
mally welcomed on board Captain Moody's model
of a proposed floating battery, 'Electric Telegraph
Station, and lightship. This novel Invention wo
will attempt to describe, leaving tho reader to lorm
his own opinion aa to its merits. The Invention,
being to a great extent an Innovation, and to far, In
the eyes of many, revolutionary, will be plcntlfolly
assailed and discussed; and all we propose It to
provide the materials for the cheerful occupation of
assault, if need be, and discussion. Captain John
Moody it an old sailor who has been connected with
some of onr leading steam services, and he baa in
bit retirement conceived, and at hit own cost pro
duced, tblt model, -which many distinguished naval
authorities have pronounced a wonderful and In
valuable thing. He broached his scheme before the
Inventors' Institute, of which be It a member, stat
ing that tbe breakdown of the Atlantic Cable first
set him thinking, the uptbot of bit thought being
the conviction tbat floating telegraph shipt would
be necessary In order to Insure perfect telegraphic
communication between ocean-parted countries.
Practically, by means of hit ships, he would divide
a cable Into short leegtbt plan which he contend
would lessen the diameter and weight of tbe cable,
and therefore reduce itt cost as well at the expentea
of laying. The cable wonld be tunk from tbe cen
tre of tbe floating nation, where tbe Injurious ef
fects of oscillation and fraction wonld be reduced to
a minimum, llcrc, of course, arises the essential
question as'to tho safety of tbe curlout structure.

A small model (13 feet from ray to ray) was placed
at Southend last year, and Lloyd's agent there re

it was fastened only by a Tery small piece of fisher

" This thing wonld ride safely when everything else
