Balling of thr Frigate Sabine and Coramlo
frtonrr Rnwlln?Llrt of OBIccrd Attached to
the expedition.
The United .States frigate Sabine took her departure on
Saturday morning at ten o'clock from her moorings in
the North river, and was towod down to the lower bay
by the steaming Huntress, when, the wind being very
light and dead ahead, she camo to anchor off the South
weet Spit for the night.
The Huntress took off from the barge office at the Bat
tery to the skip a very private and distinguished party
?f ladies and gentlemen, among whom wore Mrs. J ad go
Bowtln and her friendr, Hon. Mr. Bcddingcr, ex Miniate'
to Spain, and other dignitaries, who accompanied the Sa
bine down the buy to h<T anchorage ground.
As the frigate paused the Quarantine ground she was
saluted by the artillery of the military encampment,
which wan returned by the frigate with thirteen guns, and
with colors flying, and the baud playing a spirited nations
air, she proceeded down the bay in gallant style in charge
?f Mr. John Roberts, pilot. The company was delighted
by the exercise of the crew In trimming the yards, and oc
tar onally setting the after sails of the ship when required
by fee pilot, which gave full and satisfactory assurance of
bow things would ho done when, with three topsails
sheeted home, she should bo made to "heel it"
by the breeze. She has a flno picked crew
?f young able sailors, among whom was seen
occasionally, however, a regular old fushioned salt of
fee "Jack Bunsby" school. It is remarkable that
Mtls ship goes to sea without any midshipmen, who are
ahrays considered the safety guard of a vessel at sea.
This is the fault, we believe, of the regulations of the ser
vice hmi ing the number of midshipmen, which should bo
remedied at once. What few midshipmen we have are at
fee naval school, or on foreign stations, but the number
m entirely too small for the efficiency of the service.
At three o'clock the company sot down to a magnificent
dinner, at which Oommodoro Shubrick presided, and
Chptain Adams did the honors of tbo foot of the table.
Ibe dinner was really a splendid display, and did honor
and credit to the culinary department of the ship, which
was a sufficient evidence that the officers intend to "livo
as they ought to live" during the voyage, whether they
"die clever fellows'' in the l'arona river or not. The
band played some most inspiring airs during the dinner,
and wine, wit and sentiment fiowed freely. Among the
good things that were said, on American officer, who had
tetely been employed in i'oieigu service, remarked
to Commodore Shubrick tbui " we sailors all knew what
a running bowline (a knot like a slipnoosc) whs, and ho
bod only to say to the landsmen present, that howsoever
often the necessity for their use might be demanded on
board, yet he would guarantee, if the result of the expe
dition came to a fight on shore, there would be found no
running Bow.ins on land." A filibuster drank a toast to
fee gallant officers present and tbo noble ship Sabine, rc
toting that the ship was named by John Q. Ad.ims. after
fee river in Texas, which was then the dividing line be
tween the United States and Mexico, in the south; and
feat the frigate St. Tawrenco was named after the river
dividing the United States and Canada, in the north. He
hoped thai " the ship, like her namesake, might prove
Ibe settlement of the boundary lino of alt our difficulties
with Paragury,endiug with the annexation of the valley
?f tlx* I* PUtU "
On the whip coming to anchor the company depart*! on
hoard the steamer, and as she loft thn noble ship three
taarty cheers Mere given b> the gentlemen.
The rigging of the Sabine wan then manned by the crew,
who returned the cheers with loud horns, which made
even o!d N'optnne himai If raise hia head atiove the waters
ia the shape of a large whale, which came close to the
ship, spouting in tine style, aa if in response to our cheers,
and as an omen of the success of the expedition. Tho
monster was some forty feet in length, and frequently
showed himsch. A wag on board observed that It was
emioous that Lopez would either " cave in" or catch a
** whaling"?a prediction which is sure to bo vended.
The che. rs were responded to from the steamer and again
hy the crew of the sb'p, and handkerchiefs were wave 1
uulil tbe distance left but lint dim outline of the beautlfhi
?hip, nearly bull down on the borixon.
II was s clisrniiiig day, and tbe party returned in tbe
evening, delighted with the trip and tho pleasant eater
tainrr.cnt. which will serve to many hereafter as s mos:
daUghtful remtn.seeiioe.
Just at the moment of tho departure of the ttabino
Commissioner Bowtin received important despatches from
Washington, in tbe shape of additional Instructions (Tom

At Bra,Oct. 17,1868.
Our gallant fr gale weighed anchor,as you will prob
ably have already noticed, yesterday morning at twelve
s'ckKk. Slowly, in obedience to the stroke of tbe Hun
tress, she turned her head in the direction of the Nar
row* and stood down the hay. In passing Quarantine the
Seventy first n gimenl saluted the Commodore's flag with
thi teen guns, to which the same number was returned by
the Nsh.ne.
Tbe excitement of hoisting the anchor sad getting under
way had quite subsided, when s man, affected by deli
cti m tremens, Jumped overboard, and as usual upon oc
casions ?i sceh surprise, gathered the crew around tho
mainmast The fellow was picked up by a schooner, and
wbru 11 taken by one of the officers of the ship, was found
m an attitude of prayer.
At bvr o'clock wo anchored off tbe Southwest Spit,
abuut a mile from the Susquehanna, which, with bouse.I
topmaris and a roiled appearance, looked shabby enough.
The fabbatb dawned cpun us with a sky beautifully
serrue and a temprraluro as mild as the sunny land to
which we arc bound, but the littlo wind remaining tons
bail g< nc aiound lo the southeast and left the vessel still
at anchor. It seemed. however, to relent towards mid
Say, and at half past twelve tbe Sabine's sails were spread
to the- wind for tbe first lime. We have now Just crossed
U>? bar, and tbe pilot is being discharged. Ail are well
and in good rpirlts, s fa r wind seta spun our quarter and

The Central Park-.Progress of the Work.
The last appropriation of 1300,000 for the work on tho
Central park havtog been exhausted, with the exception
of about $80,000, which, with Urn present force employed,
would not last tho Commissioners longer than Ult Decem
ber, an application or $300,000 more wan made at a recent
meeting of the Common Council, and tho Finance Coin
miUee of tho Beard of Aldermen, at their meeting on
Thursday, reported in favor of an additional n?uo to that
The number of workmen on the park has heon lately
increased, no that there ore employod now $,700 men.
The fate of the park is ueHuuung u progressive aspect, and
premises to afford some enjoyment to our citizens before
long. Already quite a number of carriages and eqncH
trains are daily to bo seen on the grounds. About four
miles of the drives are graded, and in pretty good order
for use. The promenade has so far approached completion
that in a very few woeks it will bo available. The first
huge shade tree, transplanted from near Sing Sing, arrived
on the park u few days ago, oud was planted yesterday,
at tho opening of the promenade. Out of the hundred One
elms required for this part of tho purk eighty have
already been selected in Westchester county, aiul will bo
transplanted as rapidly as possible. In addittou to the
proim-nude ami drives, several miles of meandering walk
radiating through the lower park aro already (Unshod and
gravelled. Tho construction o three bridges, according to
plans adopted by the Commissioners, have been commenc
ed. These bridges will bo very handsome structures. They
are designed for tho purposo of carrying tho drivos across
the rides at different points whore the naturul features of tho
ground Invito Buch constructions. They are of uarrow
spuu, being only twenty-five foot across, with au elevation
of cloven or twolvo feet. They will be built of solid ma
sonry, fronted with Nuva Scotia stono, of a dark drab
color, and red brick. Tho playground, fourteen aoren in
extent, near F.ighth avenue, is now as level as a billiard
table, and presents a very flue appearance; it is manured
and ready for sodding, and will moat probably ho sufll
ciently Arm and in condition to rcceivo bono bail and cricket
clubs next summer. Tho skating ground, which covers
nineteen a< res, is nearly ready for filling, llie daiu only
remaining to bo completed, and Mr. Oimstcad is of opinion
that it will be upon for skaters by Christmas, if wo haro
any frost before that time?a consummation devout y to
be wished. A large portion of grounds aro ready to re
ceive shrubs, several thousand of which w.li be at once
put in, reserving certain kinds for a more favorable sea
son. If tho Corporation docs not bestir itself the park
wii) be in an available condition before the approaches to
it are fit for use. At present there is not a good road to
it io any direction. Fifth and Kigbth avenues arc in a dis
grace fuI state. Fifty ninth street should bo made t. n
feet wider at leust. The streets entering tho park
from Fifth avenue should bo graded at once,
so as to enable visiters to enter it from
that approach. The contract for grading Fifth avenue
has been given out, and the Street Commissioner Simula
see that the work is commenced and pushed on w.th >ut
delay. We believe a contract for grading Kighlli avenue
has been taken long ago; but nothing has been done there.
If the contractor does not at once commence the work, it
Should ho given to some one else to do.
On visiting the Central Park on Thursday we were gra
titled to observe the substantial and mc-t important parts
of the work m so advanced a state. There is time euougli
for the ornamental portion; but if wo have the drives, pro
menades and some miles of walks ready for use by next
summer, It will be a great satisfaction to the public. Hut
there should bo more men employed. In a couple of
months from this lime a good portion of the work will have
to be suspended, owing to the frost, and the Commissioners
should make the most of the intervening time. Wo hope
they will use the money at their disposal to increase the
number of hands while the weather permits, and we hope
the Common Council will assist them.

Koine weeks ago the Deputy Superintendent of PoHce re
OSived information that thorn ousted in thin city or its tin
mediate neighborhood a den of expert and daruig counter
friters, where bogus money of all doscriptionH wan nwuiu
factored on an extensive scale. Immediate steps were
taken to ferret ont the. gang, and In the prosecution of the
took a number of experienced detectives worn employod
night and day. But little success attended the efforts of
the officers until within a few days pact, when fortunately
a couple of notorious counterfeiters were " spotted" (to
dm a professional phrase) and followed to their residenoo
at Mott Haven, Weutchester county. The police watched
the premises cloeely, and after duly rccounoitcriug tin
establishment they returned to Mew York fully convinced
that they hud discovered the whereabouts of the pang they
were in search of. On Friday owning Sergeant lefferlHuwl
officer McPouga! paid another visit to Mott Haven for ih :
purpose of watching the movcincuts of the suspecto
partiee. They found the house already referred to emp
ty, but secreting themselves in an adjoining dwelling
they patiently awaited the return of the occupants.
About 10 o'l lock two men entered the house, and soou
afterwards they were observed to retire for the night
The police then hastened to New York for assistance, an I
on arriving at the headquarters in Broomo street, a num
ber of other detectives we<-> <.c\ 'Icd to work up the
case. The jmsk proceed' I io Mott Haven without, d day,
arriving there about one o'clock in the morning. The house
wan immediately surrounded, and at a signal tiio rear
i.oor waB burst open, and three of the police entered the
house. In one of tlie upjier rooms they found two meu
named Leonard Bui ker,.alias James ( Watson, an I James
Jones, who wero promptly handcuffed and taken .nto ru
tody. The police then searched tho, premises, and in a
short whilo succeeded in linding about $12,000
worth of counterfeit "tens" on the Ogdensburg Bunk, .V.
Y., besides a number of other counterfeit bills, some diet,
plates, preBscs, chemicals and paper, URod for nank not.
purposes. In fart, they found a rompleto set of counter
felting apparatus and coutrivanccs for ch-uging the ric
numiuatiouii of genuine bills from onc-H to threes, Avon,
teus.ic. In a closet was found a copy of a hank nob
safeguard, describing the hills of every bank in the United
Slat en; abo a I land bonk containing a tucsimiUo of the ? g
natures of Hie pitnideuls and cashiers, of the various
banks in each Stale. A quantity of burned pup-r w is
found in one of lb grates, which on examination proved
to be the remains of u number of iui|wr(bct counterfoils,
which bail been committed to tho flames as worthless
Among other tilings seized by the police was a lot of
counterfeit Turkish mouey, which no doubt
formed a part of tbut discovered iu Dmmc
sin et last week. How those plaetro bills
came into tho possession of the prinoneis remain a mya
tery. <m being qot aitonsd relative to tbiH un-l other mat
ti r?, they refused to give any informal ion relating ther-10.
Y. stcrday the accus 1 were brought before Justice you. k
i nburh at the Jsfleraon Market Police Uourt, where after
undergoing a brief examination, they were committed to
prison for a further hearing. Tho arrest of tho prisoners
was a fortunate tiling fur storekeepers and otls-rr, for in
a few days the entire city would have been' tloodcJ with
the spurious money seized, it is thought that a ta, g?
amount of the counterfeit money in question w.ui tatonde ;
