Crisp to Now York appears to have greatly strengthened tho confidence of his frlerds in the succoss of his candidncy for the Bpcakorihtp. They bellove that If the -nomination wore to be made Immediately he ; would certainly bo chosen to preside over the new Congress. They do not claim thnt the -whole of the Now York delegation Is now for Mr. Crisp. Ou the contrary thoy concede that '.McMillan, Wilson of West Virginia, and Mills have warm supporters among the Now York- ers. but that when the time comes to act the delegation will got together In faor of one candidate, nnd the chances of uniting on the Georgian are most favorable. Mr. Wilson of West Virginia Is thought to be tho most dangorous rhalof the two loading candidates Crisp and Mills. His popularity, ability, and geographical location give him groat strength as a dark horso, and in tbe eent that Mills can't win, it is said ho will do his utmost to help Wilson to beat Crisp, whose aspiration to reach the Speaker's chair has ilono most to put tho honor boyoud tbe roach of tho Texas leader.

Tha Newark Had at ore Onaeta than nayi Othr-The Veanvlna and tha Torklona Did Not Heeelve-I.lherty Board, and No Hood Anaerleaaa Tnraed Bach. Our Undo Samuel's big white ships now at anchor In the North lthor entertained more visitors yostorday thnn over boarded them In adaybeforo. loatlng out fUedaya. Tie vis ltors were visitors to the ships them' ?s for tho most part nnd not to the men oi juicers. This was a new thing to tho officers, who were used tobavlngnfowporsonscomeon loard to soo friond. It ploned them to note the grow ing Inteiost In their ships, even It sonic of the more ct.reloss visitors did forget themselves nnd murk tho frchly holjstohed decks with tobai co juice. The white shirs are anchored In a lino ex tending from Twenty-third street to Forty ninth street. The flagship Chicago, flying tbe penuon ot Admiral Walker, lies at the southern end of tho line, olT Twenty-third street. North of hor Is the Newark, and then comes the Yorktown. The Allnnta lies off Fortieth street, and tho lioston olT Forty-ninth streot, with tho Vesuvius between them. Visiters were allowed on boatd tho other ships after tlm morning service, but tho Chi cago dtil not recolve until attor 1 oMock. From that time on until uvoning there was a swarm uf small bo.its iibouf the ships, or coming and going. The Newark seemed to be the ship most preferred, nnd a'l tho alternoon a mos tliillolleHt was hauglnguround her. PerliaiB It was timidity about boarding the Admiral that soul iho crowd to the Newark, lying just above Hie llBgshlP, or tieihapB It was that tho HlghtseeiH had ', the (,'IiIcmbo lolcre. The iorktovvn utiii the i-huv.us were not receiving callers. The Atlanta performed her shiiro nolli, tl.iiugh. and was hospitable to a great many men ami women who went nut o hoi; from the piers between Thlrtv-seventh ami lom-stcond --treets. The ilo-ton Iny so Mr up the river that she did not receive as manv l-ltors us her ulster ships, but sbowus by no means negloctod. -i- Slost of tho people hired the boatmen a ong the iers to row tliem out to iuosiiip inoy wanted to soe. sometimes a, party of young fellows took a boat fortbouiaelvos. 'lhen wheu they ronched the ship one of tbem was sure to be dl-anpoliited at having to stand by with the boat while tho others went on board. Ibere were so many ot the small boats that it was Impossible for them to He close to the ships, and they had t stand away. The tide vvns tunning in. and it seemed to take on ex tra strength wheu It saw, nil tliote young mon laboring awuy at the oars try ing to k-op their t oat abeam of the ship. It swashed uround the small boats nnd gurgltd about Iholroarsas If laughing to seo so many men who weie unused to rowing sweating so hnrd. ! here was n fair little breeze blowing, and It kicked uu a little bit ot a sea. so that when tho small Loats ran alonglde of the gangway there was once In a while an awk ward step to niako wbloh tnnde the temlulno vIsitoisBhrltika littlo and half Inclined sumo of tliom to scream. .... . , As one of tbe officers nf the Atlanta put it, tho people who went out to the white ships otorday went out because It was yuuday and their day off. They vvent just as they would bavegono to any other oUje tof amusement. Thoy had practle illy theiuuot the ships ami wor- left to wander about as they pleased and to Bee what they could. The sailors were very attentive und glad to pilot strangers around, nnd the officers look ovory opportunity to ex tend the courtesies of their Bhips to their visi tors. On the Chicago tbe big guns aro kept locked up tight, but on the Atlanta a young officer seemed to take a positive pleasure in explaining tbe mechanism of the dcatu engines, and when ho showed bow tbe Hntchkiss guns were manipulated he put his shoulder to tbe gun and turned the crank with enthusiasm. The visitors wore curious about everything they saw. Tbe women admired the elenn decks and tho men wore pleaseil with the neatly colled ropes. The rack ot rllles at tracted much attention, but the man most tallied about on ench ship was the one who sat In idle satisfaction In the stern of the ships launch, evidently waiting for something, but what it was no land lubber on board could tell. Tho little groups of sailors, busy over tbelr games of cords, did not escape notice, and of coursothore was the usual amount of Bpecu latlon ns to whlnh ship could whip w hioh and which gun would throw shell furthest. There was a lot of talk about the navies or other na tions, nnd considerable well-meant bragging ubout our own lighting ability, and It all got mixed up with "its" and "ends" and talk of torpedoes and the Narrows, and guesses about the drill of tbe Naval lleserveand a lot of other thing-, nnd so tbe amateur Inspection went on. The visitors put. tho.r hands on the big guns and touched the rifles, and looked along the Hotchkiss suns . and said "I toll you" to each other. And when thoy bad soon the big ships to their satisfaction they stood along tbe rail and watched other visitors come and go until It came time for tbem to go. too, and a very successful recep tion had been given by the White Suuadron to th i enide. , . Thero wa one striking difference between this reception nnd the one held on the big ships nt Boston. Here everybody came and went Ht pleasure, and nothing was hurt and nothing was carried ofT. Nobody was asked who he was or whnt lie wanted, ho there was no unpleasantness and none of theoitlciousnOFa so maddening to tho gunulne Amorlcnn heart. liuiHoston people do things dilTerently. llown tlere Central Office detec tives went out to ihe shlnr ou the davs when visitors woro allowed ou board. A detective stood at the top of tho gangwav and turned back such peop'e as it suited him to refuse to allow on poind. One old gentlemau, who lierl a small.

He was wearing a uniform resembling that worn by the blue jackets except that ho had no nnrao on his cap to indicate to which vessel he belonged, and no stripe on the sleeve tode noto his watch. Ho was transferred to tho W abash. tho lioston rccolvlng ship and thence to Now York to tho Chicago. Here It was found that he was not on the list of deserters, nor was ho on the papers of any of the other ships. Ho was taken to the Boston.

Several streets ot Boston and Chicago wore so dirty that Whttechapel would not have tolerated tbem. The houses of tho poorer people In the two cities mentioned were constructed mostly without any npparont recognition of sanitary laws, and not only the buildings but every thing Inside ot tbem seemed unwholesome.
