LEITER PttOll SARATOGA?
[FBOM O?B OWN COBBE8PONDENT. ]
SABATOOA ?PBiNos, July 24_My last letter con
taincd a promise to your roaderH that they should
hoar from mo next from Saratoga-in thia let
thom behold the fulfillment of eaid promiec. On
last Sunday night I embarked on tho Rip Van
Winkle, bound for Albany and Troy, ?nd waa
Boon-that is to eay, not I, but tho Rip Van
Winkle-ploughing, uot the Broiling billows of tho
vasty <'eep, but the Bwift current of that noble
stream on which, about a half a century ago, FUL
TON mario tho flrst successful attempt at steam
navigntion. Ere I drop into tho poetic vein, Uko Mr
8?HB Wegg-ore I attorant (and fail) to describe
tho Hudson aa viewed by moonlight-I would re
mark, en passant, and in plain prose, that the Rip
Van Winkie can no more compare tp tho St
Johns or the Dani?Cbrew than can a counterfeit
ex-Con federate Ave dollar note to a Spanish
doubloon. The Rip is an irreligious boat and
runs on Sunday. Tho religions boats do not, and
are good. The Van Winkle does, and is (com
paratively speaking) bad. As it was necessary,
however, for me to reach here by Monday, in time
for the great races, I was compelled, nolens volent
(particularly nolens), to take the irreligious boat,
with the short and uncomfortable decks, and
dark, dingy and crowded cabin. The Rip Van
Winkle went to sleep bofore steamers were m ado
as comfortable and commodious aa they are mag
nificent. It has awaken to find itaelf the meanest
craft that rons np or down the Hudson River.
Bat let me drop into poetry. In descending,
let me borrow ? Une from the song wherein it is
declared that "the moon was shining bright and
clear," remarking, however, that in this there ia
more poetry than troth-for the moon, though
shining bright, did not shine clear on her first
appearance, aa the lowering clouds soon gathered
and doecended in an uncompromisingly heavy
rain. The rain, however, did not long reign, and
the moon soon reappeared something brighter
And now behold the noble-I mean the ignoble
-steamer, aa abe sonda through the water like a
thing of life, the rippling wavelets splashing
from her bows in all their wealth of diamond
encrusted spray. Bee how we scad past the
rudo and ragged rooky bank?, picturesque in
their romantic beauty; see here the grassy slopes,
here the noble forests, and there and every
where the pretty little towns and Tillages ; note
the precipitous palisades, the grandly rising
hills, the more grandly rising mountains, and
mark how, in the glorious moonlight, then
shadows are reflected on tho mirror-like surface of
tba broad swift stream. See the Highlands, many
of thom rising to an elevation of fifteen hundred
feot ; look up again at the moon, thoo como down
from the poetic olouds, and subside into prose
onoe more. Retire to your state-room, if yon
have one, sleep if you oan, and awake next morn
ing at Albany. Take a fine and highly satisfac
tory breakfast at the "Dolovan," then take the
train, and arrive in a couplo of hours at Saratoga
Behold your correspondent at Saratoga-at the
groat resort of Fashion-at the place where hand
some ladies most do congregate-where one-half
of the ladies dross within an inoh of their Uves,
and the other half within a half an inch thereof.
Watch them-and watch him as he watches them
- as they stand around the "Congress Spring,"
and drink the water-as they stand around the
"Columbian" and driuk again-as they go round
to tho "Empire" and imbibe-as they hasten to
the "Washington" and again partake-as they go
to the many other springs and drink many other
tumblers of the water. Seo how tho pretty little
water drinkers make prottior little faces at the
bad taste of the good water, and seo their gallant
beaux as thoy drinks dozen glasses to show them
selves extremely heroic and highly fashionable,
aud render themselves extremely ridiculous and
Come to tho Indian Encampment-rido around
tho circular railway, and to show your great mus
cular powers to the ladies, over-exert yourself in
a most ridiculous manner, and panting tho while,
assure said ladies aud all within heariug that you
aro by no means tired; endeavor to prove it by
going around onco more; try it and make an igno
ble failure, and ?mile foolishly and sheepiably as
you catoh the silvery laughter that comos from
their pretty little months. Do ali this and more.
Endeavor to exhibit your great skill in archery;
take a dozen shots at the target, and miss a dozen
times; imagine that the ugly Indian man is laugh
ing at yon, and be suro that the pretty Indian
squaw or maid is doing so in a private and confi
dential manner; try the air-gun, and fail again;
then show your generosity by sacrificing sundry
copper Coins to tho cupidity and skill in archery
of the little Indians. Do all of these things, for
thoy are, of Saratoga, most Saratogian; then
drink a dozen more tumblers of water at the Con
gress, take the ladies to swing and indnlge in
cream, and escort them hotel-wards.
Saratoga, nevertheless, is a fine institution-a
gay place-a place which one is never in a hurry
to leave-wherefore your correspondent has con
cluded to rest here for awhile, and will prate more
in detail of everything in particular in forthcom
Although the hotels-which I will speak of in
my next letter-are crowded with the elite and
creme de la creme of the Northern and Western
States, it is sad to behold how many Southern
faces we do not behold here-faces which, in
the days before the war, were- much more
common here than household words. The South,
however, is not entirely unrepresented; a few
of onr fashionable ladles are here.
Your readers will naturally inquire, and, like
Miss Dartle, in David Copperfield, "want to
know" whether I have forgotten the main object,
the professed and confessed object of my visit;
whether I intend to ignore the great race whioh
waa to take placo on Monday. It did not take
placo on Monday, for it rained yesterday-many
of the human race being disappointed, and the
horse raoe being postponed. It came off, how
ever, to-day. This morning, when people had
finished their matutinal water-drinking, and had
satisfied their increased appetites by indulging in
enormous and unnatural breakfasts-when tho
gentlemen had smoked their Havanas (no com
mon segara smokod hero, that aro acknowledged
so to be), wbon Ibo fair Bex bad each and every ono
niado her toilet, a constant stream of vehicles of
all descriptions poured on in a continuous current
raco-trackwards. Handsomo ladies iu bandst mo
equipages; fashionable gentlemen in neat Uttle
turn-outs, somo driving tandem, Bomo driving sin
gle, and aome double; sportiug men in sporting
wagons, sporting diamond pins; professional and
amateur gamblers in di'to and spurting ditto
tho hoi pottot- BO-callod in Greek-in English, by
tho less elegant and loss euphonious, but not lees
expressive, appellation of "tag-rag and bob-tail," J
in all sorts of buggies, carriages, and break
downs, dra>MI by all sorts of horses, somo of them
also of tho brokon-down species.
And they all go to the track, and away to tho
track go wo also. We pay ono dollar for ad
mittance to tho track, and grumble mentally at
tho price, as wo call to mind tho timo when wo
were wont to pay but ton cents to BOO races in
Charleston quito as good if not much superior.
Next we invest twenty-five centa more and tako a
seat in tho grand stand.
The grand stand can accommodate about four
thousand persons. We i find it, to uso news
paper parlance, "filled to its utmost capacity"
the pretty and handsomely dressed water drinkers
being here in grand display.
A printed bill informs us that the first race is to
be the Travers' stake of $50 eaoh, play or pay;
that forty-one horses have concluded to pay, and
that five only intend to play at the game of a
Bingle dash of a mile and threo-qnarters. The
purse amounts to the comfortable Uttle sum of
$2060, and $1000 more has been added.
The trumpet sounds the call and the noble
steeds appear, their souls (and their Boles) in
arms and eager for tho fray, or rather for the
race. We forget the war and imagine ourselves
transported to the old Charleston Jockey Club
Stand, wben we soe the little ebony colored riders
trot themselves out and trot out the horses-but
we remember that abey are now freed-boys and
perceive our error. The trumpet again (not the
fife, as in Charleston) sounds the call, the boys
are mounted, and the following steeds stand con
fessed : Merril, Baysxoater, Ulrica, Tom Wool
folk and Billy Connor. At the tap of the drum
the five are off, and away like a quarter of score
of arrows sped each from a trusty bow. Tom has
the track and leads, Billy comes next, he being
hard pressed by Ulrica, whilst Merril and Bays
water lag behind as though in no particular baste
to show themselves. On approaching the stand,
at the end of the first three-quarters, Merril
came first, Bayswater next, Billy ten lengths be
hind, with Ulrica and Tom close at hand. At the
half mile all went to work in good earnest, and it
is hard to toll how the race is going. Here they
come down the last quarter stretch, Merril lead
ing, Ulrica nest and a little too late, the other
three extremely late. In they como-the flag is
lowered, and Merril is the winner. Time (very
bad) 3:29. The following 1B the result :

The second race was two milo heats, with four
entries-Onward, Julius, Mill Creek and Knight
hood. The first heat was flat and unintereating,
being won with apparent ease by Onward.
The second heat, however, was exciting in the
extreme. On passing the stand at tho end of the
first threo-quartors, Julius, who, for a quarter of
a mile, had been running neck and nock alongaide
of the favorite, got tho extreme end of bia nose
undor the string first, and onward they fly, On
ward and Julius, whilst pretty ladies frantically
wave their linen c?mbrica, and loud and hoarse
men grow loudor and hoaraer aa they cheor and
shout Uko madmen. No one earea to look at
Knighthood or MUI Creek, all aro intent in gazing
upon the favorite and his game antagonist. Awa\
they go, nook and neck, faster and faster, tiil
thoy pass tho throo quartor pole, when Onward,
true to his name, goea onward, atill making a
perceptible gap between Julius and himself.
Horo they come on the last quarter-"get out of
tho way"-"the man with the white hat, turn
him out"-"ait down in front"-"a hundred to fifty
on Onward"-"five to two on Onward"-"now
he's coming"-"let bim out, little nigger"-"the
baby's born aud is a boy"-"three cheers for On

heat and race. The following is the summary :

The German War In New York.
From the Belletristische Journal wo learn that
the Austro-PruBsian war scenes are re-enacted

patriotic descendants of ARVNICB recently wore

a house in the lower part of the City of New York.
From words they came to blows, and one of them
(a barber perhaps), with a razor, cut the throat
of bis Interlocutor from ear to ear. Of more
credit to them is another fact we have from the
same source, viz: that they are taking up collec
