have had plenty of male delineators of Yankee pseoliarl

their position to the circumstances of oeing b^rp amid
the round of a certain dialect thsn to any oiatiaetive
talent; hot from these Mrs. Florence it wholly distinct.
She Mtarally sparkles with vivacity; and. whiia much of
her attraction daper da on the novelty of the character
she represents, she most convince every spectator that,
under whatever drcumstace.es she had made her studies
of humanity, she still would have been an Intelligent and

During the put fifteen ** twenty yean the flruwood
trad* bM increased to an almost Incredible extent. Un
like many otbar trades, its growth has not boon limited
by that of the elty, nor has It laoriand In proportion
with ths iaorsaso of ths population. Twsnty yuan ago
the amount sold annually did not ex seed ths sum of two
hundred thousand dollars, while the yearly sales are
now estimated at two millions and a half. These figures,
we should state, are based entirely on estimate, es there
are no ether means of eaoortaialag the amount of the an
nual oonsumptioa. ForsMrtjr firewood was purchased al
most exclusively for douteftio use, but it la new used In
factories, mill* and steamboats mors than over, and ths
great demand for It on railroads has eontiderably aug
mented (he prices. Aa la the ooal trade, the business
varies With the season ot the year, and Is always
more lively from the 1st of October to ths Christmas
holidays, at which tisaa our people generally lay lu their
supply of winter fool. In the months of February
and March the trade begins to revive again, and
the dealers, the eartmen and the wood sawyers are kept
pretty active Ull about the middle of Msy, when it falls
off sgain, and osaUnue* at the lowest ebb throughout ths
summer season.
Ths wood market, if we may so call it, Is not confined
to any particular locality, but exteudi along nearly the
whole length of the North and East rivers, within the
limits of the city. On the North river the wood yards, ae
they are termed, commence at or uear Washington mar
ket, and are to b? found at iutervala from that paint up
to between Thirtieth and Fortieth streets, ths largest
number, however, being In the vlelmity of Spring. Oa
the East river their extent is a little more nondnsd,
beginning at or near Rutgers slip, and terminating about
twenty -flf h street. The "wood yards" must not be con
founded with tic timber yards, aa there ie a very great
difference between them. Wbil* the former are situated
portly rn the piei s and partly cn the streets,along the bulk
head', and have not their limits confined by walle, the lat
ter are mslcly off the street, and walled in. The dealers in
firewood hire or lease the ground at an annual rent from the
owners and their buvines* U, or rather was, regulated by
an ordinance which has long niece become obsolete.
Tlere is no trade, perhaps, which le free from impcsltioa,
acd It would be absurd, therefore to expect that the
wo <1 dealers, though as respectable as any other class, are
exempt from the charge; but we believe they are smoig
tbe mo't houest. Still, housekeepers complain sometimes
that they do n:t receive tu'l measure, and that it is not
always quite up to the mark presort xd by the city or
dlnsuce. Acc rding to this ordinacoa, the load is mea
sured ty stakes on the cart, within a space of two
feet five inches by two feet sine, the height to which
the wood is piled being in proportion to i s leng'h. This
is the regulation, hut it is net always complied with,
as we have intimated, nor ar* there any means of
doing so, unless by the passage of a new ordinance.
The 'rati* has oertalniy reached an extent to justify the
ptessge of such a l*w?acd we submit the subjeot a*
one deeervlcg the conridere'.l&n and attention of our mu
nicipal legislators.
Its supply o.' fire-wood for the whole city is obHinod
by means ot beats, and is brcught from New Vjrk, New
Jersey, Conneeiicit, Virginia, and North Carolina. The
beat* are of all aires, ranging from two hundred down as
low as forty ton*. There are, it i* calculated abrut two
hundred el! (get her, and the average value of oachii es
timated at four thousand <!o)l?ri. T1 is give* an tggro
gate of eight hundred th usand dollars, which we are
assured Is rather under than ever the actual amount.
A considerable number of these, however, are not ex
clusively engaged In the firewood trade, hut during the
dull seasons are ccoupied in carrying other kinds of
freight. It I* very rare that the dealer* have any pro
prietorship in the bo*! a, and the wholesale trade, which
is confined almost exclusively to their owners, is con
ducted on a different system frgpa -the retail
business. The syrtem is, however, Jest as simple and as
easly understood. The captain, who Is not unfre
qeently part proprietor, la responsible for the payment
ot the crew, and, in consideration therefor, is allowed tc
freight ore half the revel for his own profit. Th* other
ball belongs to the proprietors; and If the osptaln be a
proprietor In part hs is allowed a share fn the profits
proportions'* to his ownership. No matter what msy
be the risks incurred by delay* or ether tosses, accord
teg to the terms of tbe agreement he is held responsible
for the psyment cf his men. He also sells the wood to
the retail dealers, landirg it at the point from whloh It
iscispoeel of by Uism to the consumers. Ten or fifteen
years ago it eras Ike practise to sell the wood from the
deck of the vtssel by retail; but the business has increas
ed to such an extent that the boats find the wholesale
trad* more profitable, and have now almost wholly
abandoned the retail butlner* The wood Is sold
at wholesale by the cord, each cord consisting of
tbres leads. It Is not, as a general thing, so subject to
fluctcatirns in the price as ether articles of domestic
use; and aa the supply 1. eeidem below the demand, It
generally remains at the same rat* from month to mon' h.
Tbe greatly increased consumption within the laet fifteen
or twenty yean has, as we have said, necessarily led to
an increase in the price. Tn* following a-e the rates at
which firtwood ia cold at present:?
Bt iih Cargo. Per Oord.

Our principal supply of pine oomes from Virginia and
8outk Carolina, and ia more extensively used than any
other description. In fas*, we bcTe been told that
the consumption of pine In this olty exeeeia more
than double tbe amonnt of all othar kinds. It
ii used elilefl j for firewood, as it U ran oh easier to
kindle tban ctber wood, and is also in greater demand for
factories, mills, stsamboats and railroads tban aojr other
While it is superior to oak, hickory and other hard wood
for lighting fires, it Is inferior to these, in the opitlon of
tbe eoonoroieal housekeeper, on account of its burning
more rapidly. It makes, however, a pleasant, qjieerful
fire, and from its ie*taous quality is Mid to give out
mora heat. A portion of tha pine sant to the New York
market comes from New Jerrsy, bat it is so small that it
ia hardly deserving even of mention.
Hiesory Is, as may be seen from the foregoing table,
the highest in price, and comes under the denomination
of hard wood. It is a particular favorite with economi
cal housekeepers, on aocount of its "lasting" qua
lities, and nszt to pise is more extensively need
lhan any other kind of firewood. It is pro
cured principally from tbls State and New Jersey,
and occasionally we get a supply from Connecticut.
A large proportion of our supply ecmee by tbe way of
the Raritsm canal. Hickory has been known daring a
severe winter season, wben there was a deflslancy, to
bring $3 % a lead.
Oak is not so abundant In our market, aid is, we be
lieve, generally considered Inferior to hickory. It comes
also from this State, Connecticut, and New Jersey. B-eth,
birch, and maple are regarded by some as superior to
biekory to the amount of from two to fonr shilling* in
the cord They seldom, however, come separate, but are
mixed up with hickory.
The retail dealers on the North and East rivers num
ber about on* hundred, and each of these furnishes em
ployment, or is at least the mesas of giving enploymen
to six eartmen and six word sawyers. If to these we add
tbs captains of the vessels engaged In carrying wood to
New Yoik, and a crew of Ire to each, w* have a total o
two thousand five hundred persons who are directly de
pendent oa tbe trad* In this city. In addition to these,
there are a large number of grocers In the poorer locali
ties, who sell firewood in still smaller quantities than the
dialer* along the tiveia, so aa to bring it within the reach
of thoea who are usable to buy a load at a time. By
these the woed is chopped ep and split, after which it Is
tied In small bundles, and sold at from six penes to a
shilling a bundle. Quito a flourishing little business has
also D?en etmblished by wood pedlar* within the last
four or five years, and In soma quarter* It is now a com
mon sight to see little boys and girls bearing on their
heads small hamper baskets, surmounted by a pyrnnid of
firewood, almost ss tall aa themselves. What tbe poor
have to pay for a load of wood in this form, and sold la
this w?y, or how much tbe poor Httie pedlars realise, we
cannot say. We are safe In saying, however, that the
peor pay more than double tbe amount for which it la
sold by the first retailer, and for which tboce who are tor
better able to pay higher prtae can purchase it.
The woo ("sawyer* obtain a rather precarious subst*.
tence from their business, and, exospt atoertain season*,
are not so wsil paid as common .'sbnrsrs. Thee* are
very *ew, 'nieed, who ran p-ocu re steady employment a
anything who will tnu i at meh ill-requite* later when
than U plenty of otter work. An expert ha ad will ear*,

rity of them?ar* poor, broken down, superannuated la
borer*, wbo ar* enable to erawl up a ladder or *hoolder
a hod, and who take to this aa the last resort to proeur*
a subsistence. They take ap their station by th* wood
pile, seriously lookinf oat for eoatomers, and where
there are six or seven to the on* pile, or th* oae yard
we should say, they take the customer* In rotation.
This prevent* 111 feeling and jealousy on th*
part of any. They * en* rally get three or four
shillings a load for sawing, and even then
although It I* sometimes not more than one half tke pro
fits realised by the dealer, they ar* occasionally obliged to
rednee their prioee to conform with thoso rigid rules of
domestic eoonomy which always find th* poor th* best
snbjaet* to praettoe upon.
Tho ahawoee of th* wood sawyer, poor a* they are,
hare bttn rednoed considerably by the application of
steam to hi* branch of th* business. Companies have
been started within tke past eighteen months, called
Kindling-woed Aaeoeialions, which saw, out np and fur
nish the wood in boxes, ready for use, without farther
trouble. Thee*, we understand, are doing a thriving bu
siness, although serious complaint* are mace against
some that they do not give full measure.
The number of cettmen wbo are employed in oartisg
wood about the city is estimated at 6ix hundred, but
as it does not tarnish them with sufficient work, tkey a?
oept any odd job* which they may be ao fortunate ss to
get. Their usual rate for carting a load ot wood Is two
shillings, bnt this Is regu ated by the disrates?although
it seldom exceeds that amount. The amount of capital
which they have invested in the business, in the form of
oarta and horeee, Is about ten thousand dollars, which Is
held In shares of one hundred dollars eaoh?the estimat
ed value of each horse and cart. This, added to the
value of th* vessel* employed in brirging firewood
to New York, makes a total of eight hundred
end ten thousand dollars. How uu>h more the
amount would be Increased by the addition of the various
litte Investments of the Itinerant juvenile retailers it
would be a difficult m\ ier to calculate. The ?fcjarity
nnd a largo majority, too?of the cartmen own the horse
and cart they drive, out -oaie are employed by the deal
ers at a regular salary. This is enly done by those deal
ers who do an extern- ve business, and who ore able to
keep five or six men c nstantly oceupi-d.
It might naturally be supposed that the great increase
of late in the consemp ion, and the rapid encroachments
of civilizstirn on the limbs of our lorests, would greatly
diminish the supply of wood for the purpose o! fuel, and
that the day is not far distant when we shall bs obliged
to fall back upon our ioexhtuslible ooal beds; but
no sppiehenbionc, we are told, need be entertained on
this subject during this generation, the next, or the one
that follows, or, indeed, for one or two hundred years to
ctme?for as yet then* is to perceptible diminution
in tie vast storehouse with which ns.ure has supplied us
in cur gigantic tores'.*.
"It will be some time, I tell you, before those old
woods are chopped down," said aa exporienced retail
dealer to us on exprea?ing our fears upon the matter.
" It won't be in my day nor In the next hundred years.
The woods are going further away from us," he added,
" but it will be a mightly long time before we get to the
other end cf them."

The Sidden Change l\ the Weather?Extraordinary
AND tllPRWEDRNTED HaII. &TORM IN FOLTON COUNTY.?
The flacloations In the temperature for tne thirty hours
preceding 10 o'clock last night, war Ytry great, and most
remarkable eren In oar changeable climate. At noan on
Saturday the mercmy, in the eh*de, at the IIbrald
office, stood at 88 degrees, and in the streets the mean
beat was about 60 degrrea. The heat continued oppres
sire throughout the day and eveuDg, when, about 2 A.
M. cn Sunday, the mercury fell, and a str. rig wind began
to blow from the weet, whleh did some little damage to
awnings and other loose gear, and fouled many of the
thipe In the docks, as well as Injured their rlggitg. The
change in the temperature and the direction of the wind
ehowed that some violent rain storm roust hare taken
place not far lioin the city. Yesterday noon the ther
mometer marked 16 degrees, and last night at ten
o'clock the mercury had fallen to 49 degrees?a
dlflerence ot 39 degTeM in a little oyer thirty hours ?
a change that must affect tue weak and sickly most un
favorably. There was a ycuig bunicane blowing from
the west during the cay, and U'.o city was wrapped in a
eicud of oust no dense that a pedestrian on one ride cf tbe
streets could scarcely see the bouses on tue other Bide.
The streets were comparatively deaortsd, and the churoccs
slimly attended; but then there is a fund of pious conso
lation in the thought that the church members could
?'remember th?y were dust" on such a day, without be.
irg fold so by the ministers. _ ^
We 'earn that a very violent storm visited central
New York on Saturday. Fulton oounty was the seers or
terrible havoc caused by a hall storm the most extraor
dinary that ev.r tell upon that district of country. It
commenced to thunder and lightr leg about 11*. M , and
presently tail began to fall with such violence and cf so
large a t ire aw to est-urd and affrigh; all wao bebeUl it.
A eerie ehower of cobble stones could not have done more
? iechief In Johnstone, Fulton county, there was not a
window blind or riece of iat'iee work in the town that
was pot brrken. The window glass was imwhai, email
hcuses and bans were torn down, large trees uprooted,
and those that withstood tbe ga'e were denuded of their
branches and leaves. All the toners were levelled, ant
irreparable daznege doco to the fruit trees and growing
crops. Several men were knocked senseless, and It is
reported that one or two were killed. The cattle also
ruifered severely. The storm lasted bat half an hour,
yet it did Incredible damajo In that short space of Ume.
gome of the hail stones that lay unmelied la the sun
two hours after the storm was over wire four times tbe
size of a hen's egg. . . .
The most singular part of the story is that the storm
was not over five miles ia widtn from north to south, but
must have extended over a large surface cf country from
west to east. The haii storm of May 24,1856, will long
be remembered in Fulton county.
Opening of Lackers Street Throughto Fifth Avenue ?
There will be a meeting to day, at 4 o'elock, F. M., at the
City Hall, before the Committee on Streets, with reference
to opening Laurens street through to Fourth street, and
then regulating a thoroughfare through Washington
square to the Fifth avenue. The counter proposition to
the above, tor the effectual relief of B'oadwav, and to
avoid tbe deiecration incident upon the conversion of the
Fifth avenue Into a street ot stores. Is the following, viz:
to widen 1 aureus street for the cistaoce of two blocks, as
far an Broom? and th*n to opan a Btr?et dlraotly
acror* to the jenotion cf Carmine street and the Sixth
avenue, thus afforcing a thoroughfare averaging nlnety
flve feet in width from Barclay stTeet to the Harlem river.
This plan also will save Washington parade ground from
being destroyed. It oould not be well spared from that
part of the city, where it is a very tovorlte resort for the
children of the poor. Maps of these plans can be seen at
the City Ball. Tbe relief of Broadway below Barclay
street should el to be taken fnte consideration by the
same committee, ae the press ot vehicular travel is great
est between the Park and Wall street.
Fatal Rani op a STAnni.NO Affrat.?William Potter,
the person who was seriously stabbed at tbe coraer of
Chatham aDd Doyer street*, on the morning of the 27 th
alt., while engsged In a fight with two brothers named
Timothy and Bernard Hand'ey, died yesterday morning,
at the New York Hospital, from the effects of h!? injuries.
Tbe accused were arrested at the time of tbe affray, and
will now be brought before the Coroner on charge of man
slaughter. The deeeased, as will be remembered, re
ceived fever el stabs in the breast, ore of whloh pene
trated to the lungs. Every medical aid was rendered the
unfortunate man, but he gradually lingered until yester
day morning, whan he breathed his last. Coroner Can
nery will hold an Inquest upon tbe body to-day.
The Baiot Church Brad.?The exhume'kn of the Brick
church deed progresses slowly, and at the present rate
it would take some weeks Wore they were all rem reed,
but the City Inspector has determined to quicken the ac
tion of there who ere moat interested. Hshaa Issued a
notice that he will grant no permits far the removal of
bcdlre after the first of June and the work willIcoiwe
uuently have to be ecmpleted before that time. The ap
proach of warm weather Is tbe City Inspector's plea frr
tbis notice, and it is eertelnlj a satisfactory one.
Two Both Picked vr Adrift.?The pilot boat David
Mitchell, whle beating up the bey ytsterday afternoon,
at four o'clock, picked up a row boat below the tall of
the Weet Bank, containing two boys, named Henry Pal
mar of New York, and Clarence Griffin, of Brooklyn,
who' bad been blown off by ihe strong N. N.W. wind
from Btnten Island, where tney had hired the boat, and
ware vainly endeavoring to regain the shore as tbo wind
and tide took teem ta?t out to sea. When taken on
board tbe David Mitchell they were completely exhausted.
The owner of tbe row bnat can have the same by calling
on boero the D^id Mitchell, Ijtng at present at Wall

Letter From Colonel Parker H. Frenoh.
TO TBE EDITOB OF TBK HERALD.
Mansion Hocse, 03 Ciiamukrs btrkkt, May 20, I860.
Bib?I beg you will permit ma, through your columns,
to giro a general answer to the numerous letters ol la*
quiry that I am dally receiving from all parts of the
United States, My name has beoome eo Identified with
the history of Nicaragua, that although It is well known
1 am without official station, I am in daily receipt ot
many communications from almost every State 1b the
Union, making inquiries about the climate, soil, geogra'
phlcal position, and general products of my oountry, as
well as everything slse pertaining to Nloaragua. Tha
great number of these letters precludes the possibility of
eparate answers to tbem alL In some instances I have
received two or three from the same parties, urging early
atswere, so that tbey may take immediate notion on the
advice I might give them. Unable to reply to all, and
unwilling to let tbem suppose me indifferent to the In
terest they take, I have selected this mode of common!
catirg my Inability to answer their Inquiries, and to in
foini them at an early period (say one month or six
weeks from this du e.) iberr will be issued from the press
a small but complete work, to be called the " Emi
grant's Guide for Nicaragua," a short but suc
cinct account of the country, from its oooupation
by the cor.quested' rs down to the commencement of
the Me revolution, by which the present govermnont
received t s existence; the circumstances under which
the Americans were invitid to the oountry; the pro
minent events of the late and present war, with bio
graphical rketsbes ot s'-me of the principal actors
figuring in her history ; the whole sprinkled with late
re si in* and stlrrlue ar?cd"t<s illustrative of the timis
and the men; which, if unrecorded now, will be I.ret to
the world for ever. AJs.r a description o.' her commer
cial advattegre, srisltg from the peculiarity of her
geography; n?r climaue, scenery and products, both
mineral and vefOtab'e, together with an outline of her po
litical policy, aad the character cf her people; to con
clude with a chapter of advice to emigrants, accom
panied with maps and engravings. Tne work has been
prepared and compiled wit'u great care, my position in
the country and acquaintance with the leading men,
enabling ree to obtain much valuable information never
given before. When completed It will be offered to the
public ata price wiihin the reach of every one. Five thou
sand copied will be distributed free, for the benefit of Nica
ragua, and for the sake of giving reliable information, and
popularising the cause of emigration. I shall preserve a list
of all perrons kerstufare making inquiries ot me, and, as
soon us It ocme! from the press, send thetn !re? copies,
In a.cdwerte thilr letters. Those requiring immediate
information ere la the meantime referred to our Minister,
Don Annustine Vljil; Dr. Leguro, Secretary of Legation,
or to Mr. F. A. Lalne, all now in this city, working in
behalf of Nicaragua.
I hope my correspondent! will net think me indifferent
to their Inquiries; on the contrary, 1 receive tbem with
sincere plea*are, and hall them as evidences of the deep
interest and ardeat sympathy now pulsating in the Ame
rican bonou in behalf ot struggling freedom In Central
America. With me the democratic cause In Nicaragua
has become an absorbing idea, to which all other hopes
sr.> i econdaiy. The Americanization of those flair fields;
the new dominion acquired to the world for aetive com
merce, where civilization may roll her waves, and rear a
mighty commonwealth; another home for the oppressed
of other oltmes, like thla glorious and unrivalled Union.
I am laboring Incessantly in her behalf, and I am bow
here in her service. This explanation was due the un
acswergd communications I have received. I hope it
will be teceptabl*. I am, sir, kc ,
