THEO. H. DAVITS, f'ljt JgoU SriU For. Mar. Int. Co- (Umltti) New York Correspondence. Improermntt in Boston .IrtAifcfural Iron mrus Slone Audottrand to thrtc lnstitutiont AVat rort Itemx. ew York, Anff. 10, 1870. Tlie hottest weeks of New York Enmmer weather, thns fir, have been from about the mid' die of June till near the end of July. The mor tality in the city daring that time was preat ; bat it seems to be capable of explanation by prevent able causes. The numerous instances of sun stroke occurred almost exclusively in cases in which intemperance and over-exposure to the sun. or the depressing influence of great heat. were combined. Your correspondent escaped most of this heated term by a judiciously-timed vacation of near a month's length, passed in the. eastern part of Massachusetts, in Rhode Island and Connecticut. It would be interesting to speak of the many physical improvements which two years have worked in the older, as well as the newer parts of Boston ; improvements that promise, if persevered in a few years longer, to put that city, architecturally, ahead of New York. Boston etill builds her solid warehouses and public buildings of stone, while .New York indulges largely in iron, or uses the abomination of stone supported by iron pillars, a mixture that always reminds one of the image with "feet part of iron and part of clay," that troubled the dreams of Nebuchadnezzar. There is a comfortable sense of solidity, strength and endurance in granite and marble, and I might almost say in brick, that pats to the blush the mclalic impudence of iron, though yon cover it with white paint an inch thick. Far be it from mo to decry that metal, whose nses stamp this as an age of nneqnaled material civilization. But let the use of iron be confined strictly to the sphere for which it it is fittpd. that of pure utility, and let it not invade the domain of (esthetics or art, until at least the laws of its adaptation and management have been discover ed. In its own domain, iron has its ten thousand U3P3. But a copy in iron of the forms nppropri ate to wood or stone is not architecture, and when it offers itself, as a support, to pillar up real work in stone, the latter only suffers from the alliance. I might mention n score of impos ing buildings in New, York in which this use of iron has ruined them. I see also in the architecture of Boston a quicker and more willing recognition of the principle, without the arch there is no archi tecture. It is particularly pleasant to see the preference that is beginning to be given to the pointed arch. The Sear3 building, standing on the corner of Washington and Court Streets. i3 an instance in point. The newly erected hotels up at the Neck, in Boston they technically call op, doicn, nnd down, up, though, in the main. built with care and of beautiful material, are without tho uso of the arch. The architects were, perhaps, deterred from employing it by the cowardly twinge of an economic conscience. The " Common" and " Public Gardens," sit nated as they are, near the heart of Boston, still remain physical features of the greatest attract' iveness in that city. Efforts have been made, at no small expense, to increase thi3 by the addition of statues and fountains, etc, the resnk of which is far from being an nnmixed adornment. Cer tainly, no one would think of applying tho quota tion, " n thiug of beauty is a joy forever," to the Everett monument, or to the heavy bridge that spans the quiet lake in the " Public Gardens. All strangers will be interested to learn that the streets of tho old part of Boston, so famous for their narrowne33 and crookedness, having originally followed the meanderings of the primp tive cow-paths, are now receiving attention, and that efforts are being made to straishten and widen them. For oar part, v;e do not object to their crookedness; and no true lover of tbe Hub." nor any one whose knowledge of its ins and outs is intimate enough to enable him to turn them to good account, in cutting off corners and saving the long detours which a city laid out in parallelograms ' imposes, will fail to think kindly and gratefully of this very quality of crookedness, both for its convenience and iU picturesqueness. Boston is still, as ever, the great centre where Hawaiians love to congregate, nnd where, through the agency of the Hawaiian Clnb, which main tains a flourishing existence, they are brought more in contact with each other, socially, than in any other Eastern city. Andover. which we next visited, is the seat of three institutions of learning, n Theological Sem inary, " Phillip's Academy," and the " Abbott Female Seminary."' The first offers, to those who desire to pursue theological studies, advan tages unsurpassed by any similar institution in the land. " Phillips' Academy" still maintains a liili reputation as a classical and preparatory school ; while the lovely and accomplished stu dents and graduates of the " Abbott Female Seminary," the "fern temt." as they are affec tionately termed by the male students of An dorer, proved by their manners and their intel ligence, as well as by tbe quality of their closing exercises, which consisted in part of a remarkably well executed calisthenic, or gymnastic perform ance, that they were worthy of all the attention and thought bestowed- npon them by their male rivals, you may call them brothers, or cousins. or lovers, if you please. But, educationally considered, Andover is, par eminence, a theological town. In spite of the Bomewhat-Philistine camp of the " Phillips Academy" boys, tbe social atmo'pbere of the town is decidedly saturated with a tbenlugical influence ; albeit the students and professor of the same are -a most generous, cultivated, getial and polite, as well as pious set of gentlemen." If their creed savors too strongly for some, of se verity, or their theology ton much of rigor, cer tainly no one would find that fault with the scenery of this most favored place, or with the frequent magnificent sunsets, which, viewed from " Sunset Rock," a wild ledge of great resort, cause all speculative differences to vanish before the contemplation of nature. Tbe Theological Seminar, - the possessor of a very fine library building, made of sandstone. trimmed with pressed brick and pink granite. Tbe books within, both as regards quality and condition, seem to be every way worthy of tbe walls that contain them. From the library tower the view of tbe surrounding country, dotted with numerous towns, is remarkably fine. One of the most laudable and important features of the The ological Seminary is the connection therewith of a weU-frtrnlshefl gyinnasiara, Inclusive of a bowl 1 ing alley, where the theologoesi can develop a most muscular Christianity, and prevent the en trance into their studies of the devil, in the ihapa of a dyspeptic stomach. The objects of Interest seen in the quaint, his toric little city of Salem, are ol such permanent interest that they can well afford to lie over until another time. To return to New York, whence I started : The Nathan murder is still a profound mystery; and in spite of the immense rewards offered for his detection, tbe anlhor of this tragedy has thus far baffled the ingenuity of tbe New York de tectives by an impenetrable veil of secrecy. The cruel and groundless slanders aimed at one of the sons of the murdered man, by a scandalous sen sational article in tbe Sunday Mercury, has drawn down the merited roouke of the press upon that sheet. John Ileal, the murderer of the policeman Smedick, was bung last Friday, in spito of the persistent and strenuous efforts of sympathizers and friends for the commutation of his sentence, This is noteworthy, for in New York, under the present mat-administration of justice, it is rather safer to commit murder than petty larceny. On Monday last, took place the annual regatta of the New York Yacht Club. Unusual interest centered in this particular trial of seamanship and sailing qualities, Tram the fact that the English yacht Cambria was to take part in this contest for the Queen's Cup, a massive piece of silver ware, won by tho yacht America, on the occasion of the annual regatta of the Royal Thames Yacht Ciub, in 1851. The Cambria .made a gallant, but, it must be said, by no means a brilliant effort to add this trophy to her lanrels won in the late trans-Atlantic race with the Dauntless. The Magic was tbe winning yacht, Tho Franco-Prussian war dwarfs all other topics into insignificance. It is a matter of doubt whether Napoleon can, politically, sustain another reverse like that of Mc.Mabon's defeat at Weissonbcrg. But tho ruin of the Napoleonic dynasty is far from beta;? equivalent to the defeat of the French Nation. Clatis. EnrtliTt orU in the War. If reports from the Prussian seat of war are true. the American system of temporary earthworks will form.a large element in tho campaign. Says a tele gram : "Tho territory of the Rhine provinces Is being covered with earthworks of this description. Tho land from Coblenti to Mayence is entirely cut up in this fashion already." This lesson was taught to Europo by tbe American war. Had Austria thrown np temporary earth defences, she might hare long re sisted the advance of Prussia, and perhaps saved her self from a defeat so overwhelming as that of Sadovra; but with an honorable, though mistaken self-confi dence in her power to meet Prussia In tbe open field with even numbers, she spurned this precaution, and suffered for it. That Count Von Moltke should now have adopted a policy of attack and defense, which, if slower, is moch safer and surer than the old risk- ful one, is an evidence of his quickness to appropri ate new improvements in the art of nhich he has been so close a student. If Prussia chose to remain wholly on the defensive, making of all her assailable points one vast connected system of earthworks, It is not easy to see how France could whip ber. Over and over again, the Confederates with far smaller forces than ours, repelled our most determinrd attacks, be- canso they were protected by earth barriers thrown up perhaps, in a singlo night. It was tbe earthworks manned by a thin line of troops, equally brave with the masses which assaulted them, that checked Orant in his protracted flank march npon Richmond ; and it was only when the defenders bad been killed off or worn down to comparatively a few thousand men that tho immense Union army was ablo to burst through their lines and take the Confederate capital. The Prussians being not 'less bravo than the French, ami baring forces equally' large and well supplied with ammunition, provisions and all means of sus taining a siege, we may infer from the experiences of our war, that tbey are invincible on the defensive. Were Prussia and ber allies intending merely to hold what they now hate, risking nothing on the issue of great battles unless forced upon them", they wonld ob viously put France at a disadvantage which she had probably not calculated on. Being the challenging and assailing party, she must move on tbe enemy's works. She cannot, without a loss of prestige, eon tent herself with fortifying as tbe Germans are, and keeping on the defensive too, limiting her only aggres sions to those of her powerful nary on the North Sea and Baltic ports. A war. so cautiously and ttmidlv conducted on Ine patt of France, would not satisfy that higb-spiritedi impulsive nation. Snch inaction would endanger the Napoleonic dynasty, not merely among tbe people, but In tho ranks nf the army itself. It would be war with all its expenses and all Us losses of life by the slow picking off of troops, with little of its excitement and glory. Should Prussia have re solved upon tbe plan of wearing out tho enthusiasm and patience of ber mighty antagonist, who will say that ber scheme Is not a wise one? But it is not likely that a proud and essentially military nation like Prussia will be- content to play so poor-spirited. if judicious a game, in tbe war. It may be expected that she will not avoid stand-up fights with the French that In fact, she will seek them at times and places where a preponderanee of forces, wbleh every sagacious eommander seeks to hare with him at tbe oritieal moment, gives her a reasonable assur ance of victory. But in attack as well as defense, temporary earth works would be an all-important adjunct. In ease of reverse, tbe Germans eaa fall back npon them and thus prevent the issue of tbe battle from being as de cisive as was that of Solferino or Sadowa. Napoleon, we presume, was apprised of thij change of tactics, in favor of tbe earthwork system, by Prussia, when he issued bis address to lbs army, declaring that tbe war would be " long and and hardly contested." As suredly it will be, tbe Germans desin to make it so. As a matter of course, tbe French will have to adopt a similar system for their own protection and safety; otherwise, they will be continually exposed to tbe fire of the terrible needle-guns from behind tbe adraneiag earth-works of the Germans. Ic is not improbable, that in this war, as in our rebellion, both armies-will always be burrowing toward each other's positions. and that a considerable proportion of the losses will be inflicted by sharp-shooters on both sides. This tiresome bnsineis will ba. varied now and then by desperate attacks npon each other's entrenehmenta. Occasionally there will be great battles arising from bold invasions, where armies will Lave to be met la the grapple of death ; but defeat, even In sueh eases. as we have already said, will not bo neoeiiarily fatal If the beaten forces have tbeir lines of earthworks to fall back upon. The determination of Prussia, if cor rectly reported, to introduce this we may' fairly eall tbe American system of military operations, renders it extremely problematical whether either of tho na tions will gala an undisputed mastery in the conflict, while it Increases tbe ehanees of the friendly Inter position of tbe allied neutral powers after tbe combat ants nave become wearied with mutual slaughter.

A party of gentlemen running to 0 ray's Station yesterday, to Inspect a new model floating on the Thames, were for some time unable to convey to the railway porter an idea which wonld serve him to guide the excursionists to tbe spot they Bought. Tbe chief of the party explained the kind of craft whose whereabouts he wlshed-to And, and tbe man, brightening up, hit It at last in the expression, "Ob, It's that four-cornered thing, It Itt" 'Wherenpon, with a glance savoring of pity at the band, be im parted the desired Information, a few- steps through the tratxllng and not over fragant river side collection of houses brought the strangers to the wharf, where they sat upon a hair-decayed wher ry, while negotiations were conducted with a Graves, end waterman, who, being accldcntly on the spot, wished to males the most of his lack by demandlog three times the amount ultimately given him to row the party off to the "thlnff"' which had oeen termed' four-cornered. Tbe fickle wind and sullen sky did not proclaim a sailing morning-. From the high wharf, tbe white hulled something looked, like a huga star-fish with four rays, resting low on the sur face of tbe Thames, with five main and mlrzea fore-and-aft sails, and Jib, sunning themselves above the back of tbe creature. One gentleman who had the smell of the kitchen garden still about Mm, and who hid never seen a star-fish, hinted tbat the a'fialr re minded Mm rather of a peculiar kind of vegetable marroy (tbe custard marrow) which be had carefully watered at daybreak. ,Everybody agreed that the article was a novelty; and the strongest expression upon tbe faces of tbe boat load of visitors was un doubtedly polite incredulity. Upon approaeclng tbe craft. " Telegraph Station " was seen Inscribed ; upon rounding her the words "Sea Refnge" ap peared. The visitors walked gingerly over the up per shell of one of the star-fish's rays, and were for mally welcomed on board Captain Moody's model of a proposed floating battery, 'Electric Telegraph Station, and lightship. This novel Invention wo will attempt to describe, leaving tho reader to lorm his own opinion aa to its merits. The Invention, being to a great extent an Innovation, and to far, In the eyes of many, revolutionary, will be plcntlfolly assailed and discussed; and all we propose It to provide the materials for the cheerful occupation of assault, if need be, and discussion. Captain John Moody it an old sailor who has been connected with some of onr leading steam services, and he baa in bit retirement conceived, and at hit own cost pro duced, tblt model, -which many distinguished naval authorities have pronounced a wonderful and In valuable thing. He broached his scheme before the Inventors' Institute, of which be It a member, stat ing that tbe breakdown of the Atlantic Cable first set him thinking, the uptbot of bit thought being the conviction tbat floating telegraph shipt would be necessary In order to Insure perfect telegraphic communication between ocean-parted countries. Practically, by means of hit ships, he would divide a cable Into short leegtbt plan which he contend would lessen the diameter and weight of tbe cable, and therefore reduce itt cost as well at the expentea of laying. The cable wonld be tunk from tbe cen tre of tbe floating nation, where tbe Injurious ef fects of oscillation and fraction wonld be reduced to a minimum, llcrc, of course, arises the essential question as'to tho safety of tbe curlout structure. In answer to this tbe Ipventor sayt hit vessel can be moored and abide In tbe most tumultuous oi teat. Tbe four equal projections or rajs proceed from a circular deck In the centre, which Is protected by Iron bulwarks eloping outwards. By meant of clearing valvca and water-tight compartments ber buoyancy Is tald to be certainty, and her captlilng or sinking an utter impossibility. The vessel it constructed to deflect tbe wavet at tbey strike, and the casting out of four anchors it relied upon as holding her against tbe worst tempest. A small model (13 feet from ray to ray) was placed at Southend last year, and Lloyd's agent there re ported tbat it rode out a heavy storm and tremen dous sea without shipping a pint of witer, although it was fastened only by a Tery small piece of fisher man's bass. One of tbe party yesterday was a mer chant captain of long experience, and he, though at first prejudiced against tbe vessel, bore testimony: " This thing wonld ride safely when everything else I have teen would founder." The model off Grays Is 39 feet from ray to ray. There It a light and un usually airy cabin below, 0 feet In diameter. Tbe vessel draws but 13 Inches of water, and If tbe were made 85 feet from ray to ray, which tbe inventor comldert would be the proper dimensions forafull tlzed telegraph station, tbe draught would be only feet. Tbe strange boat tailed well, being fitted with a sliding keel and rudder, answered Itt helm to perfection, gave comparatively little motion In a twell and ttayed and weared as tbe helmsman required. The breeze, It should be added, was very light, bat tbe skipper stated tbat tbe capacities of the craft would be still better brought out In a stiff wind. The principle once admitted, there Is hardly a limit to Itt application. Captain Moody's scheme Indudet First Floating batteriet for harbors, riven, tnd roadsteads, and otter situations where tbey mtyakt established forts. This was proposed before too United Service Institution two yean ago. Second, A mid-ocean floating station, wbere thlpt could call, aad masters communicate with their owners, using It at a pottofflce, or ttorebonte, or rendezvous for aid of various kinds, including lifeboatt built on tbe same principle at tbe ttatlon Itself. Third A light house fixed upon a tower, mast, or tripod, railed from tbe ccntru of gravity, which tbe inventor de clares he can carry from CO to 100 feet high without detriment to tbe telegraphing department These are tbe novel Ideas which Captain Moody, at great persooal expense, haa embodied In bli floating tele graph station in tbe Thames. lie Invites Inspection and judgement according to strict desserts only, and it abont to make a long vojtge to prove bit faith la the Invention. Tbe vettel it not by any meant un graceful In appearance. A New Fish Dcsraovza. For years past tbe fish ermen about tbe shores of Lake Ontario Sara no ticed often that fish apparently in health rore to the surface of the water, floated about In a beiplest con dition for a few hours and then died. This haa been particularly noticed among the herring, a handsomo silver-colored fish, taken in nets. The true cans of this mortality hat not been knows, or at least hu not been publicly announced to our knowledgt. Tho fishermen have charged it to leeches or other para sites fastening themselves npon tbe scales of the fish and sucking tbe life blood. A day or two since, Sctb Green, the noted plia- caltnriit, gathered torn dying herring floating npon Irondeqnolt Bay and made a cartful examina tion. He found fattened near the gUlt a worm which had eaten into the vitals and was drawing ii blood from the heart of the fish. Under the micro scope this was a disgusting looking creature, to vtx&m with power to adhere tbat one. fattened npon a &k beneath the gills it could not h shaken off. When this parasite takes hold of an exposed surface tha fish dashes hlmislf against a rock or bard tnbttwoe and tares it off, sometimes taking th scales. Thtto woundt have been mistaksn for tho real came, of death in the fish. Of course there is so remedy no way to prevent destruction to fish thus attacked, bat It is well enough to be informed at to tho real caoM of fish mortality. Roclttttr Union.
