Auguttlne, tbe balmy nook i ofGreen Cova Springt, and tbe prrfret- i iy dry uudulatlout of tba laods of lalla baker. A few dayt ago 1 fell tu with a gentle man of quiet and agreeable manners whos knowledge of K'oiidian tubjeett wt a relief to tbe high climate and corret pouding high tpirit of tbe ordinary Sar atoga visitor. He tald be bad beep forty odd tiiuoa io Florida tinea tha war, and bad remained tbere in Dildtuuimer. I found afterwards that Ibit was one of my neighb rt of Wathioglon city, Mtj ir W. J. Walker, the general Ajrent of the At- antic Coast Hue a formidable consolida- iou of half a doteu lltiet of railroad and team packet between Iba North and Florida. It occurred to me tbat here was au opportunity to acquire toma knowl edge of a country I bava never teen, ex cept from the deck of a New York and Havana packet, aud lo convey Iblt infor mation through the Daily Graphic to the great nation of consumptive and their children In tbe Northern States. Some of ut do not know what ravage a cne of nousnmption makes in a family the bead thereof, perhripo, stricken down in the youth, the prime, or tiie re tirement of lite, aud every vision of do mestic joy or adventure twept away in an itiHtant . lie must go In search of El Dor ado, following- Do boto alter tbe lapt-e of more than three b mid red yean, and to aud fro he pataea, from bit northern home to the land of pine and lagoont, from tbe brooks of the salmon to the riven of tbe alligator, from the bunt of the silver loi aud the ptsrmagab to the pursuit of the little ouet of tbe family the crippled laughter, tbe wanting son. Like the hero of the l' Pilgrim' Progrett," these place their bauds over tbeir ears and turn towardt the south crying, -'Life!, life! Eternal life!" r " , , , Idajor Walker took op the batlneti of Florida travel In 18G&, immediately upon the conclusion of the war. Although ouly a few hundred pioneer prior to tbe war had discovered that Florida was a Iryer and better climate tban Havana or the BulmtuuH, the tide of travel aet to wards Jacksonville immediately npon the restoration of peace. Tbit wa to be acrlbed, in part, to the broken constitu tions aud duei ted luugs of the soldiery and officers In tbe contest. Major Walk er observed tbat Ibete weak people were basiled about aud exposed to frequent changet on tbo way. He conceived a system of easy transit aud comparative luxury between New York and Florida. This system has so far been a success that forty thousand persons weut to Florida over lbs Atlautic Coatt line last Novem ber and returned in April and May. Tbe Florida season is full five mouths long. Tbe cost of tbe trip by this consolidation of interests and routes bas been lessened to half the cost of ocean fare to Europe or Havana aud tba comfort Increased a thousand per cent. Tbe round trip last year on aa excursion - ticket from New York to Florida aud back cost $60. The days and nights are so agreeably varied that the journey both ways is a climatic panorama. Here Is a Florida trip in iniiiMure.as 1 hope to take it next winter before Congrctt meets: Leave New York before or about nine o'clock in the p!eaant day express, or the rapid limited txpreaa, aud reach Haiti uioie shortly alter luucb hour. At four o'clock the great ateatnert Adelaide, George Leary, and (-loon to be launched) Florida, of tbe Bay line, Hart fur Ports mouth, Virginia, where theyanive for tarty hrtakt'aat. The meal and statu rooms on toese boats are equal, of late yeaiK, lo the ncconiinod itioiu on the Newport or Albany stesuiert. The te& ond evening the tourist it at Wilmington, North Carotins, where the leading e fficert of this line reidn H n. R. R. Urldgers, pteaideut, formerly member of Congres, and Col. A. Pope, general freight and psaxenger ageut, hit active atociite. These men may be called the gale op n. ert to Florid. They took roads broken add burnt luths war and made them soil to lb traveler' feet and creeled this Ira mrmae winter business to the St John's river and tbe Gutf. Colonel Pope redue d ibe rate for Invalid. The third morn- lit bctourl-t a r.ve at either Charleston city, on tbe sea. or the inland city of Aa g tn( a, Georgia.

A Florida winter will cost $300 or lest, lived iu first class ly lo, for each visitor. After talking to Mr. Walker I met Col. Pope. He is tbe general freight and pas senger sgent of tbe Florida line. He ex plained to me what I bad not before known, tbat tbe Southern Railway Se curity Company now comprises 800 miles of rail southward from Richmond and Waldon, terminating at Charleston aud Augusta, aud only wanliug tbe link he- wee u tbe river Potomac aud Richmond to make a first class through line, with a light change of gauge at Wilmington, to the cotton fields. At Savannah seven hundred and fifty tbousatid bales of cot Ion are annually handled; at Augusta three hundred thousand bales, aud at Charleston six hundred thousand, so that the Atlantic coast line nearly penetrates a territory which grows aud receives about two million bales, perhaps more. Tbe Florida traffio all keeps to tbe coast, because tbe temperature of the sea quali fies tbe climate and makes it equal. Indeed, Charleston and Savannah, the latter particularly, are the gold en gates to Florida, and in either city Ibe northern consumptive bas a balmy equal air, without tbe tnouotony of exile. Savannah Is tbe Boston of the soutb. It has more culture, amiability, aud sub- stantiability than tny city witblu tbe lim its of the lost cause. Mr. Pope says thai Florida receives tbe same general popa- stion all the year round, and that fami lies take their children from New York and New England to tbe Everglade Slate, aud contemplate the formation of Schools aud making occupation for their sequestered circles. There are few good doctors in Florids, notwithstanding the excess ol invalids (here. Mr. Pope thinks that Tullbhhfcee, the alale cpial, will eventually become I lie, Saratoga of (he South. I p lo the present time I ha been a minor report. Mr. Pope think the day is at bund when parlor trains will tlarl every day from New York to Jacksonville, dropping some paetigert on the Cliesiipoike route, where ciamt and oysters, perch and sheephead. crabt and flitters, delight the epicure aa he ididei down the exquisite bay of the Lordt of Baltimore.
