MZW YORK LETTER.
[raoit O?B OWN connKsPONDENT.]
New York, July 5?Id my last letter I promised
your roadore that, in ordor to bo the bettor able
to post them on the doings here on the glorious
anniversary of the nation's birth-day, I would en
deavor to travel around aa much as possible on
?aid day, and epite of the broiling and the baking
of tho solar rays, would strive to be hero, thero
and everywhere, simultaneously, if poseible.
Though I have not succeeded in tho ubiquitous
part of tho programme?which, by the by, I do
not think I did promise to attempt?I have, never
theless, been true to my word in so much as re
lates to tho bud cooking self-subjection.
Tho first philosophic idea that presented itsolf
to my reflection, aa I made my appearance in
Broadway?the sun shining in all its brilliancy
and heat?was, that it would have boon a most
agreeable thing had our ancestors of '76 proclaim
ed thoir independence in a cooler season of the
year, bo that the "Fourth of July" could have
fallen, say, in the month of December; the next
was, that if everybody has been fighting for the
flag, Ilion ovorybody hau certainly succeeded in
winning one, each for bis or bor own individual
use and behoof, as it was vory ovidont that all
were provided with flags?for Broadway, at least
from Fourteenth-street to Wall, was one grand
flag emporium; ovory man did hang out our ban
ner on tho outward wall, and the great showman,
P. T. Bahnu_, not only hung nut our banner, but
tho gloriouB stars and bars?I beg pardon, I mean
the glorious stars and stripes?had a good deal of
company in the Bhape of the many various flags
of many various nations.
The military procession was fine. I observed it
from a etand-poin-, or, rather, a sitting point of
view (for I sat on the top of a stage) nearly oppo
site the Bpingler House (which is opposite Union
Square), from which point did Mayor Hoffman
viow it also; and as tho grand procession passed
in review before the Mayor, who was in a carriage,
saluting him as they passed, it was necessarily
obliged to aaluto your correspondent also, as he
aat perched on the omnibus top. The procesi?n
was fine, but looked hot?the crowd looked hot?
tho Mayor looked hot?my companion, tho omni
bus driver, was evidently in a state of admiring
perspiration. And so did the soldiers pass onward
in their marob. Young America turned out gaily?
little boys perspired as they cracked torpedoes, as
they popped fire-crackers, and as they made the
day hideous with tho loud report that came from
the rusty mouths of rusty pistols. To see the lit
tle fellows, and big fellows, too, elevate their arm
"in mid air, and then -bang away, to reload, elevate
ana oaug ?my ?gauu, 11?* * / vi.?_ ____! _^ ^^
hold* But I derived still more amusement from
watching those whose pistols refused to go off?
the arm would be raised, the trigger duly pulled,
the little boy would wink his eye and giye a back- [
ward dodge in anticipation of a loud report, when,
lo and behold I an expression of blank disappoint
ment on tho little fellow's face as no sout'd eman
ates from tho refractory pistol.
The Central Park was, of course, the groat
centro of attraotion during the day, and thousands
of beautiful women, Ugly men, small babies and
large nurses, spent their Fourth of July in this en
chanting spot. Tho lake in the park is so ro
mantic in its beauty that I do not think that any
loving swain who would invest a half dollar in
currency and take his lady-love to ride in one of
the fairy little boats that glide so gently on its
pellucid and transparent bosom, and then embrace
the opportunity afforded for popping the all-im
portant question?I do not think, I repeat, that
said generous swain would have cause to regret
On the Fourth of July, 1865, your correspondent
was sufficiently verdant to go to tho City Hall
Park to witness the grand pyrotechnic display,
and was so wedged in the dense crowd that he
wished tho fireworks in a place?where fire is sup
posed to be tho predominating element. There
fore, on the present occasion, Fourth of July, 1866,
be determined to profit by past exporience, and so
accepted tho kind invitation of some rich relations,
who live directly opposite Madison Square, and
went thither to viow the fireworks from a cool
window looking upon Broadway and Fifth Avenue.
The rich relations and Moultrio were most terribly
disappointed, bowover, for tho rain ponred down
most beautifully at about dusk, and there was no
pyrotechnic display at all. The immense crowd of
what we may cull fire worshippers, or fireworks
wortjhippore,found nothing to worship but the rain
which, instead of worshipping, they cursed mou t
Slowly and aadly they went away,

Whilst each to the other did sigh,and aay
They '11 aet tbem all off to-morrow.
That is to say, to-morrow night, which (as I
write on the 5tb) means to-night,-?and so to
night we may look for the "Celestial State," "The
Illuminate*! Yew Tree," "The Fenian Bose," "The
Star of Independence," "The Ladies' Waterfall,'.
"ThePaesion Flower," "The Temple of Waeh
, ington," Ac. Messrs. Jab, J. and I. Edge-, who
presented the fireworks to the city, are determin
ed to set them off, and so to-night we are to have
a second edition of Fonrtb of July,
i I informed you in my last that Recorder Hack
btt bad administered a death blow to the Excise
Law?it was a death blow, though it was not ox
? aotly (he death blow. The law revived and breathed
; once more, but now it is dead in good earnest,
and dead forever. Chief Justico Connelly has
r killed it, and Superintendent Rknkedy bas put il
I in a coffin and buried it a thousand fathoms deep.
Connelly informed the police officers that the
t noxt one of them who should arreat a man foi
t violati *g this law, that Is no law at all, should
liimeelf be arresto*! and held to account?where
fore a policeman tried the thing in fun, and Con
nelly kept his word in earneat, and now Ken
) NEDv himself abandons the gamo as lost, and
i gives up the Excise Law as a complete fiasco.
r Pu*, not your faith in Haut, Gib-ion *_ Go. of the
London Watch Co , and put not their advertise
ment in your piper. Said advertisement, whicl
has appfa ?red in almost every pap or In the South
) states that they are to be found at No. 205 Broad
way?whereas they are not to be found there; but
I have learned from a gentleman who has an
office in this building, that no lesa than forty
newspaper agenta have called to aoo tlioso invisi
ble watch doalerB, and called in vain. Your agent,
than whom no ouo is moro wide awako and shrewd,
has formed a little plan by which ho and jour

the thing will meet with success or fuiluro oro this

I entertain tho strongost kiad of suspicion that
said Haut, Gibson & Co. are the worst kind of
swindlers, and likewise indulgo lively hopos of get

The thoatros are drawiug as usual, and running

?.ICTTER KKOM THE COUNTRY.
Camden, S. 0., July 5.?The anniversary of
American Independence waa oolebrated with duo
eclat by the froedmen of this town and vicinity.
The day opened propitiously ; the aun roso in
cloudless splendor, greeted by tho melodious an
thems of nature's choristers. At an early hour
the town was onUvened by the arrival of gaily
dressed individuals of color from all quarters.
They woro all seen hurrying to the place of ren
dezvous, as if au issue of life and death depended
on their early arrival. At the Freedmon's Sohool
houso they oongregatod in large orowds, and hero
the touchera formed them into a procession. At
the hoad marobed tho dignitaries of tho church
and orators elect; noxt came a modest band of
music (drum and fife, a la militaire), next follow
ed a color-guard, in whose midst floated) the
"Stars and Stripes."
Tho main body of the procession consisted of
stalwart men, whoBO erect and dignifiod boaring
was tho theme of comment, an 1 who wer o follow
ed by the pupils of tho different sohools, dressed
in whito. In this order thoy marched to the Town
Hall, accompanied by an immense and motley
throng of colored people, who crowded the side
walk, offering a sido scone to the picture, that was
in some instances rendered ludicrous in the ex
treme by the exoessive jollity that pervaded it, a-i
evidenced by danoing and othor fantastic concor
tioiiB in accord with the music In front of the
Town Hall tho procession halted, and]forming in
line, then and there "stood for a picture " en
masse. This spectacle was quite novel and inter
esting, and drew a large crowd of spootators, who
viewed with ovident pleasure these "pets of the
K?^ad?teS-fc?nfoiflff .?W?te n_R??*_?wto
thoy wore; interspersed by gay banners and pro
fusi?n of parti-colored ribbons, making a novel
and peculiar toute ensemble.
This was an excellent opportunity for the color
ed population to display their penchant for de
monstrations, and really the wholo affair was well
gotten up and executed. From the Town Hall
tho column defiled to tho recently erected colored
church, where thoy were entertained by several
speakers. I regret my inability to attend the lat
ter ceremonies, as it no.r deprivoe mo of the satis
faction of making my report of the proceedings
complete. However, everything passed off "as
merry as a marriage bell," and tho freedmen con
ducted themselves in the most orderly and credit
able manner. A majority of the business places
was closed, and perhap-j the closure of the bar
rooms and whiskey shops, by order of our wise
and effioient Town Gonncil, contributed much to
the maintenance of order among a crowd of about
a thousand people.
Gen. Scott's order is received with groat eatis
faction by the planters in this section. They con
sider it well-timed and most appropriate, and give
tho General much credit for the real interest and
prac.ieal wisdom he has displayed in the adminis
tration of his office. Id this section I havo not
heard much complaint of the neglect of their obli
gations by the freedmen until the recent hot
spell. They have, as a general rule, boon faith
ful and industrious. Exceptions occur occasion
ally, especially since the hot woathor makes field
labor rather uncomfortable. But this order from
the "Bureau" will benefit them and spur thorn up
to renewed exertions. At loaat we hope so.
Our crops are not much improved since my last
communication. Last week we wore visited by s
few days of real fall woathor, which made ui flj
to blankets at night. This was, as you may ima
gine, extremely injurious to the cotton plant, ant
thus threw it back in growth considerably. Be
sides, it has been raining a good deal, which gav<
that aroh enemy of the farmer, tho grass, a goo?
start.- Tho weather has improved, however, an?
the plow and hoe have succeeded in battling witl
the verdant enemy, who now lies prostrate, scorch
ing in a splendidly hot*-3r_ry sun, never, I hope, t<
raise again his hydra head.
Corn looks much better now, and promises i
fair yield, although it has been much retardod b*
. the late unseasonable weather. I have noticed oi
. the Watoroo plantations corn that could suocess
. fully vio with that ?rowing on the fertilo banks o

A Oband Scamp_A Florida correspondent of
tho Columbus ?Sun and Times, writing from Talla
[ haeseo, thus shows up an abominable villain:
i Dr. E. Toland, who came to this State from
South Carolina in 1863, and was subsequently ap
pointed on tho Medical Examining Board, and
; stationed in the little town of Quincy, was recent
, ly arrested in this oity on a charco of bigamy, and
is now confined in the jail at Quincy, awaiting bis
' trial at the fall term or tho Circuit Court of Gad
- sen county. He passed himself off a widower,
I with three children, and succeeded in marrying,
in the spring of last year, a beautiful and accom
" phebed young lady, the daughter of ?P.9 Of the
? most r?Bpected and Worthy gentlemen in Quincy.
I It is strange, but nevertheless true, that he lived
with his new wife more than twelve months?up
to the time of hie arrest?enjoyed the confidence
1 and respect of the whole community?who patron

j. and was never suapicioned of being; guilty
of an act of auoh diabolical meanness. I
bay strange, because he corresponded with
l hla South Carolina wife regularly, and instructed
,, tho post master at Quinoy not to deliver hie letters
to any one except himself. The oanee, finally, of
1 the unfortunate young lady's suspicions was
- grounded on the faot that whileToland was recently

At a regular monthly meeting of the Charleston Firo*
Englno Company, held at their Hull on Tuosday evening,
July 3d, 18GC-, the following Preamble and Resolutions
wore unanimously adopted :
The fell archer. Death, has again unqulverol his
arrow, and struck down a shining mark in our midst.
Tho bereavement to us by this blow Is not only experi
enced in this company, where wo hailed the deceased as
a friend and companion ; but tho oloctrlc ahook of nym
pathy pervades the whole oommnnlty. Perhaps no city
could boast of one so deservedly popular as our Ex
Prosldont, JOHN KENIFICE. His name soundod almost
to all as familiar as a household word; and who shall
soon forgot the honest grasp of his hand, the t>- am of
his constant choerful countenance, or the innocent
playfulness of his mirth-inspiring words, ever cheering
up tho Bpirit and warming up the heart** No one.
Always cheerful himself, bis presence never failed to
communicate It to others. Hla la a memory not easily
forgotton; it will live out hla generation; and many who
now read this imperfect sketch of character, who knew
the subject of it, will, in after days, when momory re
curs back (o the scenes and pleasures of youthful asso
ciations, find him not forgotten. We havo thua spoken
of his character aa it glistened on the surface; but it
was interlined with the nobleness of a tender heart, a
high sense of honor, charity and bonevolonce. His long
