. THE BOUTE.
Business, "which, required immediate
attention, was the cause cf a -visit to
the. North. Leaving Columbia in a
light 'wagon, about 10 o'clock p. m.,
on a moonlight night, we had a very
pleasant ride to Winnsbore. After a
.short rest, chartered .mother wagon
and went to Concord Church^ the
then terminus of the .Charlotte Rail?
road [Since that tho Charlotte cars
run to Adger's, five, miles above
Winnshoro, and passengers now go
through from that point to Charlotte
in one,day.] As the trains wore run?
ning very irregularly, and happened
on that day to arrive extra early, we
hud the pleasure of spending the
night yi Concord Church.
AN UNMJEASANT NIGHT.
A country church ip. no doubt, a
delightful place to spend a Sunday in;
but to pass a rainy night in the afore- ?
said building, without a light, is far j
s TTUVKLT.TNG FACILITIES. ?
. To give an idea of thc travelling fa- i
cilities,. we will only1 state that, after J
remaining, at Concord Church two !
uays and a half, a family sticeoeded in
getting an ox cart to carry them to
the Greenville road.
. A20AEI) THE CAES.
About 1 o'clock we took the cars for
Chester, and, after a short ride of
iifteeen miles, spent the night at the
well kept hob] of Mr. Nicholson.
Seven o'clock the nest morning found
us aboard thc train again, un the way
to Charlotte, v .
..urvKEsrFir.D TEAVEL-roNTOo.N rfunoi- !
Tho bridge over the Catawba having
been burnt by Stoneman, a quarter of
a mile from the river, wc were com?
pelled to leave the train, go down a |
steep bank, cross a gully, climb a
fence, and wade through a ploughed
field to reach a pontoon bridge; cross?
ed the stream, and then sm up-hill
job to reach the apology for a railroad |
train on the Jfcrrthcrn bank-the bag?
gage meanwhile being carried fi round?
about c?ur.se of a mile in a wagon, at
a cost of fifty cents a trunk-which
the passenger i? allowed Hie privilege
of paying. The passenger (as it waa |
termed) car was minus cushions, backs, j
and, in fact, seats. There being a j
'soft spot in one 'of tin; wheels, we
"were treated to ii "bump, hump,
'bump," all the way to Charlotte.
j DETENTIONS OX TUE KO Al v. ETC.
Of course, another night had to he ;
spent at a hotel-the railroad folks j
deeming it, unhealthy-to run their cars
in the dark. Sunday morning early, j
we took the train for Greensboro; thc j
cars in no better condition tuan those ?
on the Charlotte Road. Whi ther or
not there have been an extra number
of smash-ups recently on t hat road,
or that the wrecks of the last JV-w
years have nol been removed, it is
impossible for us to say, but lhere >s
hardly a mile of the ent ire road but
which is embellished with ruined cur?
on either side of the ?rack. Cevtiduiy,
not a very pleasant sight lo a passen?
ger. Night No. was spent in the
cars at Greonsbovo-the hotels in that
pelion of tiie cid North State, being
in a very bad f?ate. A decided im?
provement in the appearance of fae
ears was manifest on the. Piedmont
Railroad, and a ride of six hours
brought us to the ancient town of
Danville, in the Old Dominion. This
town was U3ed az the general hospital
for the Confederacy, and a great many
patients were still confined in the
uumercur. hospitals. From Danville,
vre ran do*vn to Burke~viiie. Thcx.^
passengers have a choice ? of routes-*-5
either^ via Bichuiond or Petersburg
and City Point; Wo chose the latter.
CITY POINT-Iii FE AND ANIMATION.
At City Point, tho ex-C?nfederate
beging to feel that lie is in a different
atmosphere. Railroad cars running
every hour; steamers and vessels ar?
riving and) departing; trains passing
to and fro; soldiers, black and white,
hurry backwards and forwards, and
thc bustlo and confusion incident to_
what appears to he quite a business*
place are seen and heard on every
hand. Immenft warehouses and
wharves have been constructed ulong
the bank of tim river, which are
principally used for Government pur?
poses. Enterprising Yankees have
built quite a respectable town on the
bluff, which, is reached by long flights
of stairs. Quite a commodious hotel
has been erected, which is occupied
almost exclusively by officers, but
where a civilian can get a fine meal,
a capital julep and a good night's rest.
Two lines of steamers now run from
Richmond, via City Point and.Por?
tress Monroe, to Baltimore. Tho
''New Line," as it is called, composed
o? the steamers City Point and Die-*
tutor, for Fortress Monroe, and the
George Peary and George T. Prudy,
ave tin' Sitvoritcs, and ure generally
thronged with passengers. Tho fare
and accommodations are excellent.'
The 'Leiry is regarded ns ono ol' thc
fastest steamers afloat, and makes the
trip to Baltimore in two Ju mrs less
time than either of thc others.
EVIPF.OVEMENTS-THE RAILROAD* AGAIN.
And now for Baltimore, and thence
to Philadelphia, and Now York. Aji
accommodation train leaves the Monu?
mental City af 8 o'clock, followed by
the express at 9a. m.-the former due
in Philadelphia at 1 p. m., the latter
in Now York at 4 p. m.-quick trip,
you may ?veil say. Tho road Led has
been 'cha?ad in several places; the
chango of ours at the Susquehanna]!,
at Havre-do-Grace, hus been obviated
- the entire train being carried ost i?
?n au immense boat--and you run
through to New York without change
of ears. A railroad bridge is being
built over the Susquchunnah.
CHANOES-THINGS AS THEY ABE NOW.
To one who has boon shut up in tho
Confederacy for rive yours, numerous
changes, trivial, perhaps, in them?
selves, arc apparent -a few of which
?MATTElwS AMI THINGS IN PHILADELPHIA.
Stages (or Omnibusses, as we term'
them,j have entirely disappeared from
the streets of Philadelphia-horse
cars having taken their place. ?All the
principal streets have the rails laid
A large park, in imitation of tho
great Now York Central, has bee? laid
out near the Schuylkill Water Works.
Tho New Jersey Central and the
Camden and Amboy -Railroad Compa- I
nies have been merged into ono con?
cern. * .
A GOOD lin*\.
Post Office boxes are attached to the
lamp posts, where letters can bc
dropped and they ?uv promptly deli
IO YORKVILLE AND HAKEEM".
As we made our headquarters with a
relative in Harlem, and consequently
rode up and down every day, st good
opportunity was afforded cd' observing
?the improvements and extension of
the city. The Third Avenue Railroad
Company run curs through to Ycrk
villp and Harlem-a distanc? of eight
miles from the City flail-for the low
price o? seven cents.' Some idea
be formed of Hie business dom* by
this horse ear institution, when ii is
known that curs leave thc City Hall
and the stables in tilst street from
1 daylight, until 12 p. m., every three
I minutes, and from that hour to day?
light nguiu, every fifteen minutes, and
they are always full.
_^ DI'HM ?ES.
Tie ist and 2d a venin; railroad have
I neat and extra wide cars, called dum
I mies, with a small engine in one end,
which aro run on the route from hist
street oat. These ears present :i sin?
gular appearance at a short" distance,
as little or no smoke is visible.
HOUSE CASS VS. OMNIBUSES.
Car -, are driving omnibuses out in
New York; there, being very few e.\
ijppt the Broadway lines. The'mune
ions railway? routes in tho adjacent
streets have diminished the pressure
and crash in Broadway to a great
extent. No railroad has as yet been
laid iii i hat great thoroughfare below
25th street, although frequent efforts
have been made to do so.
STREET SWEEPING MACHINES.
Broadway and some' of the other
principal streets are now swept by a
machine in the shape ol' a- wagon, with
a revolving fan, which takes up the
dust and dirt thoroughly.
A NEW STYLE OF ADVERTISING.
Barnum and his Museum are still
"up and doing." ?tfr. /B., always
' keeping, ur. eye on the dollars and
I? " "
cents, has converted the drop curtain
in the "lecture roora" into an immense
advertising. 6heet, -where the e." tin or?
dinary virtues of. "Hubbcll's Golden
Bitters, " the magnificent tone of* cer?
tain pianos, etc., arCtxpatiatod upon.
|*fv;tw3 GREENWOOD CEMETEUY.
This "two hundred .acres of va?
nity," as ' it is irreverently termed,
is being rapidly filled up. and an?
other piece of "new ground" will
soon have to be added. ? Miss'Can
da's handsome "affair," which cost
the modest nun of 325,000, and for
years has been considered the princi?
pal attraction ot' tho cemetery, bars
been completely thrown, in the shade
-in price, at least. $50,000 and evey
870,000 being no macommon price for
the ornamentation of a grave. Several j

Wm. E. Buri on. the comedian, ge- !
nerally known as the "inimitable |

.The vault of thc "Obi Sea Captain"
has received its occupant at Last-thc !
old man having given up the ghost I
during the month of October. KA. \
On his last vyage ? cross the ocean, j
he brough* with him a skillful artist
in stone and a block of marble of-his '
own s. lection, for the purpose <.!' liav-.j
ing a ./?.?? ??/W??/V of hinuelf "worked ;
out" to adorn'his grave. Tho work
was completed, mid since, then it is .
stated that the old captain paid a vir.it ,
to the place .several times a month-- \
amusing himself by keeping the shrub- j
bely, ic, in order.
THE FEELING TOWAEU TUE SOUTH. \
As a general thing, the fe-ding to- j
ward the people ol' the South is wry
bitter-a great many pei'soiis'gobii" so
far as to say that the S ?ut hern ors have
not suffered enough that Sherman ;
should have wiped them out corn
pletely. Of course there are < xccp
t'ons to this ride. This ill feeding is!
ni6re gem rally noticed among that ?
class of persons who Lave never seen a. J
day's service, but have remained at '?
home making money. The Feilend soi- ?
diers speak far differently ol' ll.cir for- j
mer foes-tiny fcc! inclined to give !
them a lift and ludo repair tho damage .
that lias been done. That all classes!
are not so embittered is exhibited in the ?
treatment of the released Confederate
prisoners quuitered in the Battery j
barracks. Every ?lay, charitable ladies :
and gentlemen visit ta< place, and '
liberally supply the poor i'odows with ;
FASHIONS "TOI* TUE LAUTES.
The fasliions Tor ladies strike one j
very agreeably. Imagine a nicely ]
fisting colored gaiter, or "Balmoral '
shoe-laced above the ankle, with ai
small silk tassel appi nd- d; a neat, and !
very pretty "Balmoral" skirt--of a;
grave or gay color, a -, ore in g to the:
taste of tile warm." blending a iii i io ,
behiw the top of tl: . gaiter; tho skirt ;

cord, so as to show three or four inches !
of the aforesaid Uni morals; st. broad
bolt, with a'hirge buckle; a taste bon?
net, without a crown; an imitation r
Scotch cup. or a regular boy's caa., j
with a feather or bunch of leathers i
on one side; the freut hair lucked up j
in little ridges: the back bah arranged
so as to fall gracefully down cullie

NEW YO:.X FILLING fl'. .
New York is ra-,i div being built un ?
the entire extent of the island. Tho
improvements made in tao last few
years are very ap; atrent. . j
' 'fin-: cAHuams. _ j
The mania.:'':- musical drinking
houses i.-; very great; and there is ;
scarcely a ck iii Broadway but i
lias enc or two- somewhat on thc
order ot the (? '?mian l?ge* saloons,
but not. so mora! in oisarac.tt r. In fact,
the police every now and tiien .make |
descents on the. o Broadway affairs and !
close them np.
. THE I'I ("-NIC SEASON.
Monster pic-nics "ire tile order of ?
the day; and nearly every morning
cars and boats leave tho city, lilied to '
overflowing with live freight. These I
parties are sectional to a certain ex-!
tent- Sunday schools, (1 orman turu-I
ors, spiritualists, free-lovers, etc-tak- !
ing different days for their frolics.
AMUSEMENTS THE THEATRES.'
The theatres six or se vga in num
b?r-besides nu morons concerts, etc.,
are in full blast. W. C. Forbes, the
manager of the theatre in this city
twenty years .ago. is playing second
rate characters at Wiul^k's. With
the exception of Wallack, Davenport,
Mrs. John Wood and a fewothers, tho'
theatrical companies are composed of
new. names. Miss dean Hosmor, a
young American actress, is playing a
successful engagement, of se veral weeks
at the "Winter Garden." Sae is of
tho Charlotte Cushman order-in size,
:wt least; ?nd wc have the assurance of !
old ^play-goers that, although some?
what faulty-and who is it that tho
theatrical publie regard as perfect?
Miss Jean bids fair to take her place
by the side of tho, "terrible. Char?
lotte." Of pleasing addre3i, fiue
form, handsome fo.ee, and profeesional
merits of an uaeommoa order, it ia no
wonder that this lady has been drov?
ing full houses even during the "heat?

The prices of all articles, from a
mint julep to a ?ilk dress, have ad?
vanced to about doubl'.- the rates pre?
vious to the war; and the merchants
state that prices are low;* now to what
they \v.> :i few months ag?, when
