Tat* Kmw Park.
If we should insist upon the adY.-uitagea
of umbrellas in rainy weather, every man
who had lived in a rainy climate would
have his revesge upon us for advocating so
obvious a truism, by setting; it down as an?
other tale Yet if people would walk in the
rain without umbrella?, we should undoubt?
edly advocate their use. It is just as obvious
A truism that a city of the size and charac?
ter of New- Yark should have a spacious
pleasure-ground for public resort, and it is
because there is none such that we occa?
sionally recur to the subject. The wast of
it is, at present, the great defect of the
City. There is no other metropolis in the
world which has not its parks and gar?
dens? not small patches of grass and gravel
inclosed in a paling, but hundreds of acres
ef lawn and wood and field. Berlin, for in
staiice. is built at every disadvantage upon
a barren plain. But the Thiergarten or
public park just outside the walls is the
most attractive point in or around that city,
aad tvery possible improvement of aa ira
practicable eituation is m?de in the arrange?
ment of that park.
A park in a city, or at a point easily ac?
cessible from it, is the ?sest luxury of which
a city is capable ; for it is the transferring
into the town of what is peculiar to the
country, so that the citizen enjoys at once
the excitement of the streets and the charm
of weeds aad fields. Wnat would Flor?
ence be without the Cascine? what Rome
without the Villaa?what London with oat
Regent's and Hyde Parks?what Paris
without tke Garden of the Tuileries and
the Bois de Boulogne? what Vienna with
?ut the Prater * What would these cities
be, we raeaa, to the citizen seeking pleas?
ant recreation away fiom palaces, galleries
er brilliant thoroughfares.
Yet London aad Paiis and Vienna could
dispense with Prater, Park and Garden
without feailiog the loss so sensibly as
we ought lo feel tke absence of such re?
treats, because there are innumerable
chateaux, villas, summsr palaces and
grounds which would take their places.
But New-York is destitute of any re.
sources of this character but what she
cieates for herte'f. We have no romantic
MfghbewktMttj eatily accessible but West
Point. And this qucsion concerns most
nearly those whose employments are such
that they cannot run away for a wsek at
midsummer or a few days' sporting in spring
and autumn. A park is emphatically the
interest of that great majority of New
Yorkers who are kept constantly in town.
If for such there were a quiet, rural retareat
upon the river side, in whi^h they could
shake off the city dust atd escape the city
noise, and watch the sunset and the rising
moon, then they and the City and the coun?
try would be the gainers.
There is a positive refreshment and
relaxation in country quiet, which would
be to the City another aqueduct of Croton
freshness. No man but has felt this at
some time. With the receding roar of the
streets, fatigue and anxiety relax their
consuming grasp upon the mind and health.
A public park is a sanitary measure.
What is the effort of enlightened philan?
thropy in cities, hut the ventilation of their
dark and confined quarters with fresh
air and sunshine ' Let us have t resort
where we can all go and breathe an air
which is not thick and noisome with dust
and the summer odors of the City.
Of all the projects hitherto presented,
none seem to us so feasible and desirable as
the tract known as Jones's Woods, a space of
some four hundred acres or more of wood?
land upon the East River, and accessible by
the Rai'road in a few minutes from the City.
It is quite as near to the heart of the City
as Regent's Park to that of London, and
the nearest possible point which is at all
likely to be devoted to the purpose. Hat
four hundred acres of woodland cost money,
and the desire of such a spot must be recog?
nized as the universal desire of the people
before legislative setion is invoked. Let
the matter be discussed, let the claims of
fresh air and country recreation be consid
eied by all those of email means who, in
a park, would have the advantage of a
garden larger than any private man, of what?
ever wealth, could possess so near the City.
Let petitions circulate? meetings be held
?and " agitation" be excited in favor of the
public health and happiness.
Such a Park, too, would be the proper
spot for the floral exhibitions, of which we
have promise in the new Horticultural So?
ciety. May and June in the New-York
Park might be as beautiful as they are in
Regent's Park in London under the
auspices of those Summer Divinities
Flora and Pomona. There can be but
one party in this project, and that a
."union party" for the best results. Who
will make a neve that shall be efficient
and meet with no such hindrances as lately
ehecked this project in the Courts!

and Mr Fillmobr promised, that the appointment

A singular dispute has occurred between President,
Arista and Congress. A member of that body named
Senor Villaiueva made a speech in the Chamber of
Deputies ia which he violently censured President
Arista and alluded in tarms of more forca than so
liteie.ii to hn prirate life and character. On goiag
out of the Chamber VtUasuera waa met in the cor?
ridor by oce Capt Buenabad, who called him to ac?
count for this atsault upon the Preeidaat. The
Deputy replied thnt it was none of the Captain's
burUicts and that he had no ace ant to reader to
him. Hereupon the Captain smiled a paper oat of
his pochet signed by the President, authorizing him
to haul Villanuera over the coals in Ms behalf.?
This was fallowed by an altercation which was con?
tinued aut imo the public square in front of the Pal?
ace, where tt turned into a fig-t, ia which YiUaaue.
ra got biuited tome a hat. The President ia the
meantime stood on a balcony over the square to sae
his champion aet satististioa. The affair haa caused
much ezcitement in Congress aad in the press, and
the impeachment of the President u demanded for
his share in this assault upon a Deputy.

which 1 -9 been well rei eived by, and rent nearly
coincides with the news of Mexico in regard to this

Yon hare beard that the duty of causing an inves?

Gardiner and Meats, derolred on our Minister here,
Mr 1.etcher He, about three months ago. appoint?
ed an agent. (Mr VV Siocum) to go to the city of
San Luis Potosi. the capital of that State, in which
these persons chose to situate their famous mines,
and there examine into tae matter. Thta agent re?
tained some weeks ago, and states that these claims
have no foundation, there being not even the sign or
indication of any surer mints anywhere within the
territory asserted by these claimants. I bear that
evider.ee will be produced on their trials sutl-ient
to completely satisfy the most skeptical of the real?
ity of their barefaced and tremendous frauds. I
hear also that endeavois hare been made to induce
some witnesses to go to tb* l aited Statea to testify
there, at the proper time, in open Court, it is be?
lieved now, that the depositions adduced by Gardiner
and Mears, in support of their claims, are all forge?
ries, because the agent could not satisfy himself of
the exieteace ot one of tbe persons wtio tattiled ta
tbeir faror, baton me contrary, of many who aaeert
that none of them ever UveS, or were known in too

of Cburubusco, and about 7 P. M , they were at?
tacked by a band of robbers, on foot ana on horse?

bat with no effect, anc ther were overpowered. Dr.
B and Mr. Esters were severely wounded by stones,
the former so much so that he died on the foHowing
morning, and tbe latter lies dangeroasly ill. I aa
happy to say that Mrs. BeiMegui was not hurt in her

diately taken, and ia leaa than twenty-four hoars
eight of tba assassins were taken. It is needless to

The Electro-Magnetic Telegraph is already ex

completed during the coming summer. A bill isnow

do the people the justice to say that tbe materials for
