THE WSa FOR HOME. BEA VT TRAVEL BY RAILROAD AND STEAMBOAT -ttDO\YX EA-.T" PEOI'LE KEEr UP A GOOD OLD CI'STOM. The people who go out of town to spend Thanks? giving Day got up bright and early yesterday, and. after doing the little work that ls always done on the day preceding a holiday, went to trains and steamboats and were soon travelling towards the towns and cities where Thanksgiving Day ls still observed in the orthodox way. After 12 o'clock yesterday every street leading to a rail? way station or a steamboat landing was filled with hurrying people, all anxious to ret the lirst trains and the best seats. If any one had wished to get an Idea of the large number Of people who are still Impervious to the allurement of a football game u I th.* other entertainments provided In this city .and who care more to spend Thanksgiving Day as th-lr fathers did. they should have gone to some of the different points of departure from this city yesterday. To be sure, the outflow- of people was not as large vesterdnv as lt has been In years past, but no one escept the transportation officials noticed the difference. Jhe New Kngiaad travel was undoubtedly the _ieavlest for the "down east" folk are more en? thusiastic than any others In their Ideas of how 'ihanksgivlng Day should be observed The assistant superintendent of the New-York New Huven and Hartford Railroad inform.-l a Tribune rejM.rter that the road had made arrange? ments to handle a large crowd, mil that mool "f the trains would be run In sections H.* said that he notice,) a slight falling off in the Thanksgiving Day travel, but he calculated that at least S> ???> people would tie carried from New-Torh bv the road. The travel to this city frorn New England points yesterday was extremely heavy Tba lis? ton express came In in two sections of twelve ears each, and up to an early hour this morning all the trains came in heavily load. I The New-York <*entral and Hudson River Rail? road rarri'-d thousands of people out of town rsa* terday, and ail the afternoon and evening thc station was packet, lt was the same at all tbs other raliway stations, and the Sound stenm-rs had all their staterooms and berths ensasod be fore 6 o'clock. The Pennsylvania road brought In as many people ay lt took out. The Erie What is Drudgery? *".&'* GOLD DUST Washing Powder. handled Its largest crowd since the Fourth of July, and the Lackawanna and Jersey Centra] roads did equally well. Among the crowd that left the city yesterday, Hie suburban resident was a consplciotls figure. Conspicuous, because In most cases be carried a turkey under one nrm and a bag nf fruit, vege? tables, buckwheat, or Some oller article of like nature under the Other. One man cat ried fi paper bag of oranges The bottom fell <*"?' and tt,.. oranges dropped to the floor. He knew of the accident, bul he hud too much pride to notice -,_ and ne walk-.! righi on, the bag still in his hand. *.Yh"n h.* thought no one aras looking he Iel the baa drop, too. and wandered ort as though nothing had happened. Th- suburban resident had his hands full last night, lt was a bother lo carry the Thanksgiving dinner home, but he era* no dom,,, highly eomi.ens.it. d by the sweet welcome of a good wife who will cook il for bim to-day. CTJOWDS AT THE HOTEM. THE FOOT HA TX GAME D-WWI-H" MANY MBOPUE ?io thi: < itv. All the larger .Viv-York hotels are running over with Thsnksgtvlng guests. Th.* people who live si the hotels the winter through, and wh. usually gu ont of town to spend Thanksgiving, do not s., ?i t . have gone in large numbers this year ns iti time past "They can't leave that football grime," a hotel clerk said lu speaking of lbs milter yesterday. "lt used to bs the custom, you know, for every one in tbs city to fly away lo the country home of their parents f..r Thanksgiving, bul either the homes hiv.- been broken up or they do not offer tbe attractions th. y US. 1 Io." "It is wonderful," said .Iher hotel man. "what a lot of people ihi*; Vale-Princeton -ame brings r. town for Thanksgiving. Bul for ll we would have a much shorter arri, il llsl 'han usual. Now every room In the hen-- ls nih I. and wherever two bel* can be put In one room we do it -we nave !?> accommi date the people." A large pany of Vale nen came down from New-Haven yesterday afternoon and went to Ihe N.-w Netherlands Hotel. All yesterday sn Immense blue flag, bearing lhe word "Vale." floated from Ihe p..]. th.- lofty New Netherlands building, and over the entrance door blue and orange flags were draped. Thc other uptown hotels, the ria zn .the Savoy, th.* Windsor, arc all crowded with fonti.,11 guests, in the h.dels farther dosrn toward Madison Sun.re the real cr.,wi- of college nun. loud in dr. ss ani voice, and wearing their < dors promi? nently, appear. The sen.- in the Nineteenth Precinct lard night w.:s a lively one. and u looked as if many of the c,,iiem> boys would land in the station before day? light Captain Connor expostulated with the young men. telling them lhal lt he to. lr any of them to th.* station )..? would k.ep them there ocr to-day's game.

TURKEYS, coori. CHEAP AND PLENTIFUL, TtMUtkagtvIng turkeys will not afford the compen? sating harvest for dealers which bas ben their glory in most previous seasons, and if tbs retailers do th.ir duty by consumers by gauging their prl es according to wholesale rstes th. re ran !>?? cheap, good, unlimited reasttni to-raorrow. There has rarely been so low s range of prtces on any festival occasion; in fact, the flne style of birds which ha I b-*en forwarded for Monday and Tuesday's delivery this w.ck would be considered cheap nt ths late prlcea eves in an ordinary mark t time. Karly yesterday morning, wh n best buyers began picking out the choice lota, ii c nts a pound was the top wholesale price; In tb< aften.allcentsirss the highest that could be obtained for nice, dry-pick..1. full-fleshed, up-river, New-jetae* and other near point birds, which, on account ot adjacency to this point, have a chance lo strike tl..- ?arly or beal ruling flgurea. The ram.'- f,.r these prime regular line turkeys was ii to 13 centa a pound, while foi Western and remote state, IO and ii cents were full quotations. Though th? flavor Of dull tim>s still prevails In family sup;,Iv purchases, the low pries this week ar.- chiefly ascribed to the enormous receipta There w.-re received here on Monday and Tuesday 19 !73 cases and barrels ol poultry, largely of turkeys, while heavy quantities were expected t,, arrive by express to-day, and ti,, fast freight lots ;,r.- noi likely to be of con ?

HIGGINSON RESTORED TO DUTY. TO TAKE OOMMAKD OF TUE BOSTON-END OP Till-'. ATLANTA EPISODE. Washington. Nov. 29.? Secretary Herbert provided a happy Thanksgiving for two naval officers by Ismtng orders to-day directing Captain 9, M. Hig? ginson nnd Captain .lohn lt. Bartlett to hold them? selves In readiness to command the cruisers Boston and Atlanta respectively. Last May while tho Atlanta was In New-York as a participant In the naval review ceremonies Secretary Herbert Ordered him te pro..1 with the vessel to Nicara? gua to protect American Interests In the course of the revolution which had broken out In that country. Captain Higginson did not start quickly enough to suit the Department, and when bs was directed to hurry his preparations for departure ha endeavored to hav.* th" vessels delayed until her boilers could be repaired. This request was denied, bul Captain Higginson telegraphed the Chief of the Bureau of Steam Knglneetlng asking him to see that the Atlanta was not compelled to start for Nicaragua until n.-w boilers could be provided. This attempt to interfere with the order- of the Secretary through a subordinate other was considered disrespectful to the Depart* merit, and Secretary Herbert peremptorily ordered Captain Higginson detached from duty nnd In? structed Captain Bartlett to relieve him. Captain Higginson, however, had sailed In the Atlanta from N'.-w-York before the order of detachment reached him, and h.* did not know of bis relief until In* r.ach.l a Nicaraguan port. Captain Bartlett's connection with the Atlanta sensations wa* i.f another character. It was willie h.- was in cominan.1 of that v>-ss"l that a court of lnijulrv discovered that she was In a dilapidated condition, resulting from neglect to her machinery and a general disregard for the observance of regulations tor keeping her in r-pair. Th" court Of Inquiry mule a report to Secretary Herbert, throwing th.- blame on a nttmler of officer- of rh,, v.ssei hut not naming Captain Bartlett as on>* of them. Although Captain Bartlett was detached from the command of the Atlanta, lt was consid? ered that his part in the matter was v.-ry slight and his detachment from command of the vessel was not looked upon in the light of a severe con? demnation of bis course.
