WATERING FLACE IN TnE WORLD FOOD
FOR EUROPE GAMBLERS ON THE RAGGED
EDGE A TEEP AT CONEY ISLAND.
From our own rognlar correspondent.
New York, August 3, 1879.
New York is now never quite as deserted
as formerly," even in the midst ot the warm
est summer days. It is more common than
it used to be for very well-to-do people to
stay in town, and only go out for short trips.
The system of living in flats, and tho open
ing way ot Coney Island as a fashionable
resort, being principally responsible for tho
chango. There was t Iways more or loss of
troublo in leaving town for the summer sea
son, as the household must be broken up,
servants discharged aud the members sep
arated, to come together again with habits
and ideas modified and perhaps injuriously
disturbed by the summer's experience. The
regularity tho fixity upon which tho ac
ual permanence of family life depends was
thus subject to annual shocks, which some
are only too happy to avoid by availing
themselves of such mitigations of mid-summer
heats as ono within their reach, and re
taining tho safety aud comfort of their
ionics. Besides tins class of residents,
many southerners find in New York all tho
requirements ot a watering place, in its
nearness to tho seashore, and tho freedom
and convouionco of spaco and proximity to
argo stores, which cannot bo found at tho
regular summer resorts. To such an extent
s Now York inhabited, that an effort is
made to maintain a sort oi social hfo.
'artics are made that do not assemble un
der tho blazing light of a thandelicr, but
meet and dino togcthor at Manhattan or
NEW SERIES NO. 35.

The young ladies, daughters of profes-
sional men principally, who stay in town,
find it not so much of a sacrifice after all,
for the young men are not at Saratoga, and
but in a limited way at Newport. They
are in city, stores and offices, earning their
salaries, which they cannot afford to re
linquish and are only absent for the week
or ten days' vacation, which is the limit of
tho holiday time afforded them. There are
but few resources, of course, at this season.
It is, therefore, nn agreeable surprise to
.1 i 1 1 '
uuu juuujj itiuits iu uumc, gumming iu
summer muslins and fluttering friblKms,
ready to entertain and ho entertained, glad
to show off their accomplishments in con
cocting cooling drinks, and suggesting an
altogether new ideal of home life with tho,
happy circumstances of which thi thpnnnm.
eter is not allowed to cnterfero.
One of the prominent ' questions in cx-"
change circles is the prospective, unpreci
dented demand on this countrv for food for
Europe in the shapo of grain, flour and
provisions. The damage to and failure of
the crops on tho European continent; tho .
exodus of tanners from Great Britain; tho
demand for supplies caused by the war in
Africa and several other causes have lod
to an extra call this session on tho farm
products of this country. How muc h of ;
this large trade is likely to come to New
York, is also agitating thejminds of many.
Heretofore calculations could have been
made with some degree of certainty as to

usual facilities furnished by other ports for
the exportation of products of the United
states, ana the now almost pertect system
of trade between Chicago and Cincinnati
on the one hand, and Great Britain and the
continent of Europe on the other hand, and
at cheaper rates than can bo made by New
York dealers, no calculation can be made
here until the business is being actually
transacted. This condition of affairs not
only effects tho flour and grain trade, but
also tho provision merchants, many of
whom regard the outlook with anything
but cheerfulness, notwithstanding the in
creased demand which, it is apparent, will
be made from American farm piod ucts.
The inquiry into the sheriff's office is de
veloping a system of blackmailing that
surely must lead to a thorough reform. It
is very evident that whenever a civil arrest
has been made the practice in the office baa
been to squeeze out of tho unfortunate pri
soner every dollar his pecuniary condition
will bear for any privileges extended to
him, and not to release him from tho
clutches of an officer until he has been bled
as profusely as possible. The law provides
that the fee shall bo thirty-six cents for a
bail bond ; but any amount from twelvo
dollars upward has been extorted from the
unfortunate prisoners. A hundred dollars
for a day's libertv has been exacted from
men under arrest by these remorseless
sharp, and where a hundred dollars are
not forthcoming the privilege could bo
secured for ten.
A panic has been created among tho
down town day gamblers by the new cru
sade of the society for the prevention of
crime. At first they were inclined to look
upon it as a repitition of former virtuous
spasms, but now they admit only tho most
approved habitues. Four houses on Ann
and Fulton streets have taken a vacation,
and their proprietors are playing against
the races at Brighton beach aud Saratoga.
Such a complete picketing of approaches
as is now deemed necessary by tho few
houses remaining open, has not been prac
ticed for fifteen years. Tho question of a
general cessation is under consideration by
all protessionals. Tho agents of the so
ciety for tho prevention of crime hnvo lato-
ly been keeping a close surveillance, upon
tho various faro banks, and followed clerks
and others who have been seen to enter, to
thoir places of business nnd reported tho
system of espionage will be kept up until
gambling places are closed.
On WVdnpsd.iv and S.itwdnv's .Ti3tvili
visitors to Coney Island arc most numerous.
Yesterday Jewish faces were plentiful v
among tho thousands that thronged the
hotel balconies, pavilion and piaza sur-
roundinff the music stand at Manhattan
Beach. At first it seemed as though Chris- '
turns ana Israelites wero nearly' equally
divided, but late in the afternoon cither bo-
cause of a fairer estimate, or becauso the
Jews had scattered over the island, it was
seen that they numbered only about ono-
third of tho persons in the assemblage.
President Corbin says he objected only to
thosoJews whoso manner is offensive to
.!.. ) . m . t
a week, and one of the stock-holders is
Julten Meyers. Somo persons have written
threatening letters to Corbin, but, on the
other hand, ho has received letters from
many conspicuous and wealthy persons,
approving his action. The adverse criticism
