Globe establishment, Palmyra, N. Y.
"The Old Exchange," as it has long
been call'-d. has been s6 much overhauled,
added lo and rejuvenated, as hardly to be
tbe same inslitntion. The beauty of its
location' and Ihe pleasantness of its apart
ments and spacious piazzis. are hardly to
be surpassed upon Ihe lakes, and must,
w ith the right landlord, become a place of
popular resort. The capacity of the house
as calculated from its lodging accommo

thirty-three sleeping apartments. The
boose approaches completion, but shed

make something of show in the way of
posture and advertisements, they will
hardly lie considered as indictable for
false pretens'-s. Their stock is large, and
their range of prices, we are told, fully
bear out all that is claimed. The advan

are only the natural outcrop of village

OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
The new Butter—Pedestrianism—Weston—
Bennett—Morrissey and Fez—Ice—Real
Olemargarine is in more f-eople's
mouths now than any other word in New
York. I referred to this two weeks ago.
Some ingenious chemical tiend discovered
that the properties of butter did not differ
except in flavor, from tal'ow, or suet, or
anything else in the way of fat 80 this
diabolical wretch goes lo work and finds
out the chemical atrocities that gives the
fl ivor to butter, and proceeds to make a
butter which he styles Qleraargarine. He
takes suet or tallow and refines jt, ".ben he
adds these oilier ngredent and works
them all together, and the result is a com
pound which looks like butter, smells
like-butter, tastes like butteraud he
says is butter. Bui goodness! What
kind of stuff is liT When you spread it
on your bread what earthly confidence
have you in it ? It will require a more
sublime faith to eat it than it does the
complex hash al a boarding bouse. There
is trouble among the dealers about it. The
dialers who- bring the yellow article
made Irom actual milk drawn from actual
leat of actua) cows, insist thai they shall
not be put iu competition wlu the manu
facturers of suel and tallow. Tbey assert
that the Oh-margariue shall be branded as
such, aud put upon ihe market as such
that the public may know exactly what

The mania for physical development has

Gordon Bennett, the proprietor or tbe
Herald, always fond of muscularity, com
menced paying some attention to pedestn

idea there was something in his legs and
feet and a match was made. .The race
was from Mr. Bennett's bouse on Filth av

stake $3,000 a side. Iu addition to this,
over $50,000 was wagered by the Union
Club alone, besides a large amount in
Wall Street. Tbe journalist won the race,
making bis ten miles in one hour and forty-six
minutes. His competitor, tbe limb

And speaking of
John Morrissey has been and gone and
done it There is a Democratic policeman
in New York named Fox, who, Irom a
common lalairer, has in a few years be
come very wealthy, by which I mean he
has been iu the Legislature a few years.
Fox and Morrissey tell out, and the other
uight they met in a drinking saloon. Fox
stigmatized Morrissey as a prize fighter,
and Morrissey denounced Fox as a thief.
Boih were correct Fox got excited, and
Morrissey, losing coutrol of bimsell, be
came for the moment the gladiator or old,
and kmcked Fox through several parti
tions. Now, a fight between ordinary men
is nothing, but between two such men, lj
meaus something. They are both chief
tains, each with his followers of thousands
they are men whose ac's are public
property, possessing public interest True,
one was a prize-fighter and is a gambler
and the other was and is a ring politician ;
but that matters not The fiist repn sein
ed a Democratic district in New York in
Congress, and the other a district in the
Slate Senate, and between them they con
trol more political power than any two
men in the State. The party is already
divided on it, aud what the result will be
no one can say. When Morrissey whips
Fox, tbe Democratic party or the nation
is shaken to its centre.
It is a curious commentary on the civi
lization of the 19th ceutury, that such a
man as MorrUsey should possess any pow
er whatever. He was tor many years a
pugilists by protession a man whose liv
ing was in the ring one of the kind that
had be lived in Rome in the time of the
Emperors, would have bui-u compelled to
the life ot a gladiator for the amusement
ol the citizeus. But this man this bruis

Fox is really the worst man, Tor Mor
rissey has occasionally a good streak.
is an article ycry much discussed just now.
The last winter was so warm and open
that very little ice was mad -, much less
housed. Probably the amount actually
Stored is much less than balf the regular
supply and tbat halt is or an inferior qual
ity. In the country, where cool springs
and cooler wells lurnish the water, ice is a
luxury, but by no means a necessity. But
here, where tbe water runs through miles
and mill's of pipes, and comes out of the
laucets warm lo asickening degree.it is as
much a necessity as flour, for without ice
to cool it, it is really unfit lo drink. Tbe
butchers have to bave it, the brewers, aud
everybody has to have it Aud now comes
a hot summer and less than ball a supply
ou baud. Tbe people up in M iine who
cut ice for the New York market, have
doubled their prices, aud of course prices
are more than doubled here. Consequent
ly the poorer classes will be compelled to
rub along in some way without il how I
cannot see. But did you ever notice the
wonderful capabilities of poverty T The
poor people who cannot get ice, will dis
cover that tbey can do without it, and
live: Tbey have been forced to the dis
covery that tbey could do without a great
mauy other things, wbich would be essen
tial if they bad the wherewithal to get
tbem. But Ihe doing without ice is only
a small part of tbe trouble. Tbe butchers
make ice the reason for advancing the
price of meat, the brewers for putting up
the price of beer, and so it will go through
all tbe trades aud occupations. I should
not be surprised ir the street railroads
would advance their fares on the strength
of this shortage.
There has b en a marked decline in real
estate In New York within the last year
a positive decline. A v ry few dw lliugs
and stores were rented this spring at tbe
old rates, but a great majority of land
lords were compelled to be content with a
reduction of from 20 to 50 per cent. And
consequently the price, or rather value, of
real es.ate has decliued correspondingly
This is not altogether the effect of the pan
ic, though of course thai had something
to do with it But there are other causes
more potent than panics. The city is gov
erned by non-property holders, who lake
great pleasure iu sweating property. The
roughs and bruisers, who are either in the
government personally, or control those
who are in, look upon the lax-payers as
their legitimate game, and they make tbe
most of them Tue tax-payer is powerless
for the roughs can aud do elect not only
the city government, but, in the hands of
the rings, have a controlling power in Ihe
Legislature of the Stale. Taxes are piled
on in every form needed improvements
are blocked, and unnecessary ones are
forced through ic short, every tuing i
done (bat ought not lo be done, aud ev
erything is leH undone that -ought lo be
done; aud for the doing, and the not do
ing, the tax payer toots the bill. Then
again, tbe tendency has been lo over-do
nd the pnsent condition or things is the
necessary reaction. Owners 01 real estate
over built, and while tbe flush times were
on, run their rents up to an nnccnscloua-
Lle figure, wbich men submitted tu while
ih.y were making money. But' when ihe
piuch came, aud tbe pro tils dropped and
thiuga began lo look blue, the teuauls
louud that thousands ol stores were stand
ing empty, aud tbey refused to pay exor
biiaut reuts. In brief, thev said lo their
andlordai "We dm't care what you paid
lor your ground, or what your building
cost you our trade will not permit us lo

from this statement tbat James McHenry's

tablishes one of the longest continuous

The first formal movement against
Ritualism In the English Church
has commenced, a majority of the
Bishops having asked Parliament
to put down Romish practices. The
debate was opened by the Archbish
op of Canterbury, who introduced a
bill to alter the existing method of
enforcing the ecclesiastical law, so
as to render the process of punish
ing refactory clergymen easy, cheap,
and swift. As the law now stands,
all disobedient clergymen can be
punished and deprived of their liv
ings, but the process is a very ex
pensive and cumbersome one. It is
said in fact, that it cost 11,015 to
silence one clergyman, and 7,661
for another. The debate is said to
be a very excited one, and of the mi
nority, the Bishop of Lincoln, has
warned the majority that, if they
attempt to exercise the power they
now ask. for, there will be a1 schism
between them and the olergy,
