Where Gotham's Sweltering Thousands
Took their Sunday Out.
The People In Central and Pros
pect Parks.
In Jersey and Westchester?At Long
Branch and Rockaway
Ths extremely toot weather of yesterday decided
tens ot thousand* of our citizens, who would not
otherwise have made up their minds so promptly, to
seek Ire-h air wherever It could bo found. The gen
eral impulse was to get out ot doors, but as that Is
only tbo beginning It w.is necessary to cbooso lurthor
between the many Inviting spots by sea and laud
where tbo <t<-*irod cool breeze and rust and, If neces
sary, re l rest) in out wore obtainable. Hence it cams
that the people spread out In all directions?some to
Ceulral Park, sumo to Jersey, some to Prospect Parle,
soiuo to Westchester, some to Long Branch, some to
Kockuwuy, and as it was the first general Sunday's
outing of the seasou it will bo interesting to lollow the
pilgrims ol nature in their journevs after the beauttiul,
the picturesque aud tho com lor table.
Our Central Park never looked more beautiful or
Inviting than It diu yesterday. "For Jo, tbo winter Is
past, tbo rain is over and goue; the flowers appear on
tbccarib; tbo time of tho singing of birds Is come
and tbo voico ot the turtle Is beard In tho land." We
have again opened the utnsl charming chapter of the
year, that winch has violets and Hay flowers us Us
inscriptions and vignettes, lulaut blossoms hung upon
the trees and rose leaves till tho urns. As tho poet
bath It, this Is the mouth whoso robe folds are
valleys, wboso breast bouquet Is gardens and whoso
blush is a verual oveniug. it Is cbictly
tho poor, bowover, wbo, escaping from tbo cages in
w hich they have been imprisoned lor u week, most en
joy Gud's holiday on the broad walks aud among the
ttower-lringoU ruuiblcs of our beauiilu! Park. And it
was a gludsumo sight yesterday to seo so many thou
sands of them?the patoriainilias, with a troop of
household ungcls at his heels; tho mother, with the
Ininni iu her arms, and tho tollors lu the hot work
shops?all taking solid rest and uouiiort. it was a
wise provisiou of our City Fathers, under which, years
ago, wus set apart and beuutiiled u spot for such a
purposo, and though it may bavo been a cosily im
provement, no one will now deny that it has become
one of the most important factors In tbo turn ol me
tropolitan health and pleasure.
On a hot day like yesterday the great bulk of the
throng does not bogln to gather until, say, tour o'clock,
when the sun has partially lost his warmth and the
evouing shades begin to deepen, but alter that hour a
similar spectacle cannot bo witnessedanywhero else In
America. It Is then that one sees our working classes
to tho grcatost advantage?the shop gsrl In her best
attire, the mechanic iu bis good clothes, stela tlcrr
and bis trau, and, In a word, the people ol all tbo na
tionalities that constitute our cosmopolitan popula
tion. Judging (rout nhyi iognomy. It a noteworthy
Item that a majority of Bunday visitors to tho Park
appear to bo Germuns. Ii one wauled to verify tbo
fact it would only bo noccssary to mark tho
contrast between the people who patronize the dairy
aud those who drink boor. And tbe great crowd en
toys its Sunday pleasure superlatively. It passes In
review before Shakespeare, Scott, Humboldt, Morsei
Webster, Bums, Ualiock, and the sturdy soldier of the
Seventh. Tbe children clumber on tho rocks, mingle
with tho flowers uud sport on the luwas. The-swings
tho goat carriages and pomes, tho boats on the lake,
the curiosities allvo and dead lu tbo vino covorod
Muicum, these and a score of otlior attractions at
onco tempt and eutertaln. Of vehicles thore aro also
thousands cm route to aud from tho boulevards beyond
the Park.
To tho stranger as wolt as tho resident tbe picture
must be always suggestive, for Il ls eloquent with that
sptrlt ot municipal charity which lias provided so vast
u breathing spot tor rich and poor alike, and aided
nature in making It boautttul. And the thought never
can bs more impresslvo than on a Summer Sunday,
wbeu Irom overflowing tonosiont bouses, aud the
stench and tilth ot crowded apartments, pour iorib the
processions ol debilitated young and old to Inhale lbs

It was the first day 01 the season at I.ong Branch
and a very auspicious beginning it was. The steamer
Jesse Hoyt wus announced to uiako an oxcurslou to
ibai inmouB watering place with "a lull view ol tho
oio.u" and "uu opi ortuiuty ol seeing iho wie iked
stoamer Kusiund1' thrown in, but the tiopool a doep
sou excursion thus hsld out proved delusive, tho
trip being only the ordinary journey to and
troiu tho Branch. Tho oxcurslou, however,
couid not have heuu iui.ro agreeable, and It wus
enjoyed by u lurge party. Kven tbuse who want to see
the Kualand w-tre uot dssuppoiuied, lor there was an
opporluuiiy ol going uboaro the wreck, of which many
ot the visitors availed tueinsetves. Already the work
ot breaking up the steamship has been boguu by tho
Boston company winch recently purchased her lor
fctt,UUU, and be ore tho close ol the week the lore part
ol the vessel will bavo illsappoareii. The removal of
tuo wreck will bo a grtttitlcMiiou to tho souaou visitors
at Lung Branch, lor, although some Intoruct may attach
to u steamship struudcu as ucar the shore at this one
was, tho sight could uot tail to prove an eyosuro if the
wreck hud been allowed to remain nil the summer.
Tho hotels ut Long Branch aro uot yet open tor tho
seuson, but two or three ol tbeiu, notably lauch's, the
Pavilion anu Howland's, undertook yesterday to pro
vide lor tbo visitors who might come down. Their
number wus a surprise to the keepers of these houses,
uud with the best intention* it whs no easy matter to
provide lor them. At flow land's, wbcro uot more
than eighteen or twenty guests were expected, mere
thau u bun irod were reoeived ana led, and Mr. How
laud, who has been at lite Bra.Tr.it tor thirty-two
years, says the prospect lor buiiuess this year
is belter than It lias been for several sea
sons. Iho Howlitnd Hotel bus boen enlarged
aud unproved, trout sixty to eighty rooifis having been
added, while the cull has been walled with stoue
abutments and grndod and sodded. Although not
lormally opened iiowland's is already doing a lair
buuluoss, and in a lew auys the other houses will ha
ready to compete with it. The new hotel, to ho called
the Brighton, which occupies thesltool the old Me
tropolitan, has jail been completed, and will bo kept
by Stokes Brothers. Crittenden <k Peabody, who aro
Uuw to the Branch, will manage the Culled gules,
and Plorco &i Butler, who managed tnat house lust
year, will this -eaten have charge ol the Man
sion House. The Lolands will again bavo I he
Ocean House, uud Presbury & Hiiuretb the West
Knd. The hotel keepers inu) enoour..god with the
prospects of tho season, the applications lor rooms by
permanent gnosis being more numerous at so early a
date thun at any time siuco iho "hard times" begau,
while the trausicct visitors are oomlng curlier and iu
greater nuuibora than aver belorc.
Alter all there muy be something In tho boast ol tho
Long Branch real estate ngeuts that tboy know uothlug
about hard tunes at I be Brunch, klore new cottages,
especially In the neighborhood ol Baubriglii and

noteworthy algu for the present aea-un is the early

Consecration of the Archbishop
of Halifax.
List of Clergy Present and Order
of Procession.
[by Tsvicanxru to the iiebalo. 1
Halifax. Muy SO, 1877.
Thti morning at ten o'clock Si. Mary's Cathedral,
In thin city, presumed a brilliant speeiaois, lor thsr*
wii lathered in IU ?pu aloes ?ancillary and roouiy
aisles a throne of prolatca and priests and a mass ol
of Interested and sympathetic people to take part hi or
bo wituessos ol' the consecration of Dr. Hanuan aa
Archbishop or Halifax.
Nearly a year ago the whole Catholic wo Id was
shocked to learn that Archbishop Couuolly, a won am*
Inent m many ways, hud suddenly been cut off In his
carear by an attack or brain fever. The eager, l?n|iet
uous, almost flereo, prelate, whose life bad bean so lull
of action, was lying, one quiet August night, as still as
stone, and uutoug the tbroogtng people who had been
wuut to regard him with reverential awo iu bis life
time there was much the same solemn tooling as unl
imited the bosom of M'xssillou wheu, in the presence
ol assembled France and over the body ol a departed
monarch he wopt out aloud, "Only tiod la grout."
To-day the scene ts changed. A year ol mourning Is
mere than most of us give to our boat and dearest, and
the Catholic Church, whoso work Is trout the rising of
the sun to the going down thereof, cannot afford to
mourn forever or leave her sheep without shepherds
and hor blerarchs without a head. For some months
there was doubt as to who would bo tbo oca Archbishop.
One naute was publicly menlionol, aevoral names were
privately whispered, but it was known thst a list ol
candidates had gone to Kome, and tbat nt the head ol
that list stood tho name ol Dr. Mlchuol Haanau. Whoa
at last the news cuius that ho was appointod tbero wu*
a geuoral reeling of relie! and gratification. A straugnr
prelate would have been coldly received. This com
munity had all been so accustoinod to look upon Dr.
Haunuu as tbo wisest guido, the utosi active adminis
trator, tbo most acute mind, tbat to have him as Arch
bishop seemed eiuiuentiy ailing una proper.
The new Archbishop, Dr. Hmuan, ts a man about
sixty-three or slxly-four, who loiks not moro than
lllty-clgbt. Uo is an Irishman, and curries his na
tionality not only In his uame, but on his tougoe.
For thirty years and moro ho has labored as u priest in
this city, and during that period he has seen a mere
mission become a bishopric and then un urrubi.-hop
ric. He bas aeon two or three priests ol Halifax be
come ten, uud all uvor tho Province ho has seen tho
little churches grow into large obes, aod with them s
corresponding increase ot the societies wtihiB tho
Church which contribute so greatly to lis success,
and which la thouisolves avideuce Us prosperity.
Much of all this has becu aod is duo to the shrewd
ne.-s, Industry, zeal und devotion ot Dr. Hannnn.
Ha bus boon lot many years one ol tho commissioner*
ot tbo common schools, a delicate position lor a zeal
ous Cuibom: priest in those aayt; but ho was ever tbo
must popular meinour of it, and thoro were many
teachers nil over tlio i'roviuco, as woll as In the city,
who lelt that when he loll the board thoir profession
had lost one of Its boat irionds. He has labored in the
ndimnimr.itlon of the dincese under three suoco.islvo
premie*?Bishop Hughes, Archbishop Walsh and
Archbishop Connolly?and In all that long period uo
bus been most laUhlul to tils work. He Is of good
height, stooping la tho shoulders, with dark buir, lull
and chceriul ooumcnunio, and is a const.ml
walker. Indeed, Ins activity is so great ibal
he did not wish to accept a cirriago uud

President Hayes' Chances for an

WjmuiMiTox, May IV, 1S7T.
The President it rcpultd to believe that iber* are

did not wish to mslto u fuss so early
with the uew administration. They went to the White
House nod incidentally remarked to Mr. Hayes tbitl
ills two ineu bo had named were druukeu thieve*;
that he bad evidently been deceived by somebody, and
that he had butlor withdraw iho names. Tbo story
goes thai the President asked anxiously If tney were

They declined to do so, and the netnes were not
wiibdrawu?but thoy woro not confirmed either, the
senators privately deuounqtug iho President's sugges

Those politicians who saw how quickly, when Mr.
George Butler's appointment caused u fuss In the
newspapers, the names ol Moenrs. Baylor, Cox and
olhsr Congressmen who recommended him were inude
public, nod the exiromty damaging clToct ol the ex

as Ah Sin blmsclt; and It Is prnbablo that Con
greasinen will herenlter be a little careful whom
tbey recominond, for there Is nut tno least
doubt that their letters of rucnmioemdation will he
made publie by the Presldont whenever their lavorilee
misbehave. Secretary Chandler could put the Presi
dent op to another trick of the kind. When a Con
gressman came to him and demanded a place for one
ol his favorites. Chandler used to saud lor tbo Ust In
whiuh appointments are charged to Congressional
"Now, then," he would say, "I'll appoint your
man ; but there Is no vacancy, and you will nave to
tell ine whom In your district I shall turn out."
And that generally ended the dlaonsaion; but 1
believe no one pretends that tbo noble Chandler

It la no longer denied hrre that, tbcro In a grunt deal
of dissatisfaction, and evan demoralisation in the
republican ranks, In almost ail tbo .States, one-icca
and tuura enough evideuoe-ou this subject to catbls
him to rnako a study of It; uud I Ibiuk It would bo a
mistake to bellcvo all the grumbling to come from the
office rockers and professional politicians. Theao tuvo
classes ure the most furious; they feei
and say that they have boeu awindlod by
the Prcaldnut; that hud tbey suspcctod what
hla policy would be tbey would have luMen very good
euro ho ahould riot get luto the While House. Indeed,
very prominent and influential men of this kind do not
besltate to own to you in private meeuralon that they
never bel.evod Mr. Hayes was elected; they did not bc
llsvo that ha carried Louisiana, uud they are ihs less
reconcitab'e on Ifcl* account, lor thc.v fael that tbey

amns.'ng to sea the rage ol these disappointed political
?peculators who find ihomsaivc# caught iu a trap of
thvir own making.
Rut II Is not tho politicians aloua who grumble. in

part*of New York, Puunsylvaniu ami Illinois, the rank
and Ola of the party, tbo honest voiersn tbo rural dis
triutH, uro ntua/.ad and indignant at the IT undent's
Southern policy. Thuss simplo aoula cannot acc wbjr
"ibo South" ut Ifff s dangerous now than it was daring
the Presidential campaign, when wrorjr republican
slump apcukor assured them solemnly tbat the t'uiou
waa never in greutur peril. In tbe Northwest the
larmcra unu country people generally believed wbut
blaiuu and Briatow. Ingeraoll and Morton and the
army of oraiore aetit out by Secretwy Chandler told
tbeui about Iba Booth; they took la all lor gospc'
truth, and vote* lor ilayea to save the Colon and kacp
down tbe rebels; In (act they warn qullo read) lor a
new war rather than not pat in Mr. llayoa, and now
they aeo tbnlr President acting as though the South
wan an integral and harmless part of the Union, and
they do not uodersund It.
Whatever trouble the President inay'experience from
tbo disgust ol the a.uiple mlodad cuuiiiry voteia wilt
bo ol his i viu making ol course. He wee silent all the
summer ond frill, while tbe orators who urped hts elec

troin the South. The farmers und uouulrv people
swallowed all this Irulhy campaign trash, un>l are nat
urally alarmed nuw to aco tne President "go buck on
the country," for thai Is whnt It means to iheni.
"It it u very dangerous thing to dwauiee :ho peo

itoliticiaus ol Washington tbe otbur day. What
they onco believe they bold last to. 'lha
old democratic party made this mistake. They
bowled lor (be Union during many years and
lold tbo peoplu that those drsadiul republicans would
break duwu ibe const button and dissolve the Union,
and wusu, alter all tbls Uoiou saving nouMnsa. tbe
highest part of tbo democratic party turned against

bim so harm. They are mad because bo baa, as ihoy
say, gone buck on the pirly; lull that nobody but the
olllee aeckcrs caiu lor. Cur Iowa (armors say
bo has gone book on the country, and that it
more serious. It'll even tint is not very
serious; lor the people have rommon sense and will
presently find out lor themselves that tbo President Is
on the right irtCK, Wi en they discover this they uro
very Ilkeiy to bo down on tut po iti i m> who havo
misled them, sod the prospect now it that you'll see
n tremendous flock ol republican lame ducks within
elgluaon mouths. '
There teems to me s good deal ol truth la thin. Tho
President will praaontly tind the people on hi.? side ,
but be can hardly help retaining tho enmity of a largo
pari of lha politicians. The republican party leaner*
hnve ceased to be a cnnipaot aud harmonious body
I The voters who ' beliove In It" are all right; bat the
J lander i nr* jealous of each other, ready to tsar each

Hum# la hardly a northern Stale in which two

Is splitting up Into two camps. There are a fee
proiniuenl democrats wbo are deteruilued M
oppose tbe President lu every way; they say
bo U a ??fraud," tad can do nothing
good; it is a duty to mako bltn unhappy, to place
obstacles In his way, to malco him feel tbut bo has no
right in the Wbltc House, and their policy It to regard
all he does with suspicion ; to attempt extreme legls
ttoa of dlflerent kinds, and. In abort, to be I r recoil
citablet. But a mncli larger proportion of tbe dome.
eratio leaders are of a dlflerent mind, i bey say mat
Ibey wbl support tbo Presideut cordially In all good
measures; tbut party aplrit shall not load or drive
tlu.ni lutn uny blundering or unpatriotic aourae; that
they will hold Iriendly relations with htm, bat that
they will as* no lavont of hlai, aud will at the elec
tions strive to vote down every republican candidate
who dtd not protest against the frauds and wrongi
of tbo election uud the olecioral count. That is to
sav, tbeee democrats make a distinction between
tbo l'lesiuent und the republican party loaders. Mr.
Hayes, thoy sty, was evidently tho victim cf
corrnpt and unpatriotic men; they committed the
most abominable frauds In his uuuie and to forco bltn
into ihu White llouso. Mr. Hayes, being thore. for
tunately does right; It is our duty to the country and
to ourselves to support him in all right measure*.
But wo uro bound to punish tho wicked and corrupt
meu wbo put him In; wherever they stick up their
beads we shall call on the pcoplo to help us vote ihcut
down. Thoy do not denorvo to be in public life, and It
Is our duty (o punish ibum. Tbut Is the platform of
