May 31. -This Ib Wall Whitman's seventieth birthday and the good people of Camden have prepared to do honor to the occasion in n bcflttiug mnnner. It is to be celebrated by a dinuer in Mor- W tLT W HITMAN. gnu's Hnll, nt which more thnu two hundred persons are oxjiccted to bo present, and dele gntionw of the poet's friends and admirers are nrriving from nil pnrts of tho country. '1 ho " good gray " poet Ib how o i cnernblo pcrsouage, nnd his growing feebleness in rnnscquenco of bis last illness will not per mit liim to tnko nn activo part in tho fes tivities. For months past ho has been confined to his room in thn modest little cottago which lie occupies in ono of tho by-slrocts of the town, nnd in theso dingy-ono might almost Fay squalid quarters ho hns been waiting rotiently for the end, for ho notcr expects again to recover his physical powers. Tho littlo parlor which ho occupies is fur nished m the plninest stvlc. Tbo table aud floor, which wns once littered with bis hooks nud papers w hen ho was still nble to move around and devote hiuisolf to his literary woik, nro now kept spruce nnd tidy, nnd too few liookB which ho cou now rend, ultbougb they nro handy to his chnir, ore kept in good rrder by bis liousekcoiwr. He is nocustomod to sit in hiscbnir.wrai.oed Iu b'nukotH.olthough on the mild Spring days ho throw a tbo covering from his shoulders. Then tho wldo open Hhiit-collar which is no familiar to all those who know him falls nsldo and lava bare the brown, hairy throat and upper chest. but It is tho noble bead, so massive nnd full. proportioned, with its halo of silvery, Milan hair lnlliug iu long.soit locks from tbo high, rounded coronal, Instiot with life and thought, that most impresies tho visitor. The white beard bo singularly clrar, nnd pure nnd silken in aspect and texturo makes nobly venerable the strongly masculine moulded features. Tbo arched eye-brows nro also wbita like bows of driven snow, aud beuenth them smoulder tho wondrous gray eyes. Although iu bis present enfeebled nnd crippled oondition ho can do but little work, be cannot completely abandon bis habits of industry, nud when liu is feeling brighter than usual lie will sometimes toko up tho old tasks. Ho feels, however that his working davs are over, and as ho himself pathetically savs: " I just sit here nud wail. What else can I do?" Walt Whitman was born nt West Hills, 8uf folk County. L. L. May 31. 1819. During bis boyhood ho ntteuded the public schools in Brooklyn and Now York, and there ob tained his education. At nn early age lie learned the printers' jtrado nud worked nt tins during the Hummor, while lie taught school every Winter. Iu the yenm of 1H47 and 1848 lie msdo n very exten sive tour through the United Htates and Can ndu, roughing it everywhere, nnd in this way acquired n vast amount of information nnd experience, wbicti ho afterwards utilized in editing new simpers in Now Orleans aud Huntington, L. I, Ho tired of this, bowover, although bo was always wiping, and devoted himself to tho enrpentcr's trndo in Brooklyn.

Tho handsome Harlem turn-outs which used to stand at tho One Hundred snd Klith street station of the Third Avenue Elevated Hnllway, nnd convoy tho lnxnrloue ndmlrer of baseball to the Polo Grounds for 10 cents, have been out of n Job (hns far this season. Asan EvyNiNO Woni.ii reporter wandered that way ou n recent afternoon, a venerahlo white borso, which hnd once exorcised daily between the stn'iou nnd the Polo Grounds, supported by tho shafts of the back, stood hitched to an nsh-cnrt, without even the passing complimout of a red-haired girl. Ho wns a faded irlin of the hsok line. No merry Jingling of glasses came from the saloou whtcli used to do business on the corner. '1 ho only people in One Hundred nnd Sixth street which was a great tltoronghfsro when nil roads led to the Polo Grounds wero a pamlj tio who was out for an afternoon stroll in nn armchair on wheels, nnd n blind man who was being piloted by a whimsical aud eccentric dog. Tho reporter walked through tno once busy streot, somewhat owed bv its loneliness. Tho grass wat spr using up through the cracks in tbo pavement. Except for lho somewhnt stony character of the cobblestone pavement, tbe street itself might be u-efnlly put to rnisiuz buckwheat. Travel bas little further use for it. A geninl ratcon-kceper sat asleep in frontof a beer saloon on Fifth nvenne, within a stono's throw of tbe Polo Grounds. Tbe spiders were weaving n web over his bottles. Tho nnts wero paying baseball on the card tables with crumliB of pumpernickel, 'lhe slate over the counter looked like a faded score cord. There were no ticket speculators in front of tbe Polo Grounds. No clusters of 'speota tnrs bung breathlessly to tbe lelegrsf b poles. Interest in the game bad spurred nu one to nscend whero he mizht take the score, as it wero, from the wires. No keen-eyed urchin wns trying to look through the double-board fence. A bssebsll enthusiast, standing where the tboroughfnro cut its way through the grounds from cast to west, said : " Son what a rent tho envious Street Com missioner niade.", Tho fence bad b'feu torn down on tbo oast and west sides of tbo grounds. The rest of tho fence.the b'eachlng-boards and the grand stand were left standing. Tramps were quietly asleep ou the bleach- ing.bonrds ond Harlem goats were gambol line about the ball grounds There was n tin con on second base, and n goat stole the bsso. A goat was smiling in tLo box where smiling Mickey Welch used to sond tho ball curving and hissing over tbe borne plat'1. Two or three goats were mean der ng about tho Hold, and ono of them wus fielding a tramp in far left field. Threo tramps wero "working tbe growler" in tho grand stand. A trnmp was sitting in Gov. Hill's box. A score of urchins were playing ball nnd hold,ng n congress of profanity in one part of tho grounds. About fifty tramps sleep in the grand stnud every night. A resident of the neighborhood ssld to the reporter : " When the New York Club plnyed on tho ground it was n scono of healthful sport and popular enthus'asm for two or three hours n dor. Now it is n place of quarrelling, profanity aud vagabondage from morning till night. Home people are afraid to go into tbe grounds after dark. The place bos become a public nuisance." Whore tho ragged urchins were playing ball onco played the great Ewing, the incompara ble lloger Connor, tbe subtle Keefe, the learned Judge Ward, tbe astute Counsellor O'Hourke, the great masters of baseball. Where lho tramps wero Snoring on the blenching-boards thousands of voices used to choer a tbroc-base hit or welcome a home run. Where all was comparative silence and des. olatlon teu thousand willing bands used to be ready to mob tho umpire or do anything that was cheerful and useful. Where 10,000 New Yorker used to alt, hot and happy, on the bleaching boards and en Joy life watohing tho New Yorks win, were thou to be seen only tho empty boards, sprinkled bore and there with a tomato can and n trnmp. Tho abandonment of the Polo Grounds had almost destroyed bns'ness from One Hun drcd and Hixth to One Hundred and Six teenth street and from Third to Eighth ave nue. Saloon-keepers and shopkeepers, paying high rents under leoscs mado when baseball was'plaved in Harlem, found their business almost destroyed. Somo would soon go out ot business and there would bo empty stores and falling rents in Harlem. The abandonment of tbo Polo Grounds injured moro renl.estntn owners than it helped and it greatly injured hnudreds of business men. It established a congress of tramps in the very neighborhood that it was expected to benefit. It wns an incalculable injury to baseball and to tho popular enthusiasm for nthlotlo outdoor sports. In short, it was n most mistaken net, di rectly opposed to publlo interest, and the immediate prospect thbt the grounds will noon bo booming again should be sufficient to till every Harlem heart with joy.

Wony Chin Fim lita a war rant hanging over his head at the, present timo inniied 1) the Chineao Court, and should he go to China his head would be cut off. The above is taken from an article in tho Philadelphia rimes, by S. E. Chesr. In a letter to Tub World Wong says his assistant is a " notorious Chinoae crsck liar " and that 8. E. Chew is not his real name at all. Chew's true name, he alleges, is Ju Hhl Jung, and when ho first came to New York he called himself Bow Mun Jop. under which name ho was arrested for blackmailing Mott street gamblers. Having thus disposed of hip alleged trsducer, Wong goes on to say that his father was not a pirate, but a Christian, and was not beheaded, but died of old age at nlnety-alx. This happened si Ting Chow, In the province of 8au lung, J, 4 no miles from whero Chew says he wsi be headed.
