New York, Nov. 25, 1S59. c7r Progress: Yesterday, the 24th instant, Thanksgiving-day, was observed here by divers people in divers ways. liusiness was suspended and a Sunday quiet pervaded the city, save the movements of a few military companies, going and returning from target practice. In some few of the churches appropriate ;ser- Rev. Dr. Vinton preached a most excellent dis course upon the times. Abolition, and its accursed concomitants, were sharply dealt with. The Dr. seems a dear lover of the Union, saying, " palsied be the arm that strikes first for disunion." Ilcecher, Cheever, Osgood, Chapin. and some others of the crazy fanatical stripe, poured out their lamentations for "Old Brown," and preached as usual, tirades of abuse and treason. But you know 'tis said, "barking dogs seldom bite." In the charitable institutions at the "Five Points," yesterday was a glad day for several thousand poor children, besides many adults, who were served with a bountiful dinner. At ' Pease's Home for the Orphan," 'tis said 1400 (children were fed. And at ' the Ladies Ilonie Mission" some 1200 more had a bountiful meal . Besides these, at " the Home for the Friendless." in 29th and 32d streets, there was a sumptuous dinner for hundreds of indigent females, besides numerous children. Many hotels contributed liberally for these various repasts. At each of these places the exercises of singing, recitation, &c, by ' the children, were exceedingly interesting. And let me say that these and many other charities here give evidence, that in this so called " Sodom of a City" there are some redeeming qualities I will here add that at " Pease's Five Foints Mission " thero was a loaf, of bread, weighing J25 pounds, and measuring G feet long, three feet wide, and one foot in thickness. The school room was deco rated with flowers and ever-greens, besides there wTere banners on the walls with inscriptions, some of which read thus : "The eyes of the Lord are in every place." "Let the children first be filled." "He that riveth to the poor shall never lack." "Jesus said : I have compassion on the multitude.' With many others equally beautiful and appro priate. Last night all the places ot amusement were crowded. But the chief ieature of interest was the " Debut," at" the Academy of Music," of Miss Adelaide Patti, whom the papers say is almost an American, having arrived here with her parents from " Fair Itily," an infant some seventeen years ago. She represented the character of "Lucia" in Donezetts opera of" Lucia De Lammermoore." Her voice is fine, and she quite astonished the " musical critics," launching out and boldly exe cuting well, the most difficult music of the opera. 'Tis said " there is in her too, as much sentiment as ought to be expected in one so young." You know great passion, heart-rending pathos, can only be found in the Artist, f whether singer, ac tor. or orator,) after experience in the world's realities, with its hopes, its fears, its sadness and sorrows, which, alas! come soon enough. Miss Tatti. made her "Debut without wear- ing " a jaw-breaking name, or being heralded by a Transatlantic puff. And, "tis said, her effort last nijrht was an eminent success." One would judge so from the enthusiastic calls for her to ap pear before the drop scene ; and when she did appear a perfect shower of boquets and wreaths encircled her. To-day, Nov. 25th, being "Evacuation Day," (the anniversary of the departure of the British from this City in 1763,) was celebrated here with great spirit. From early mom men were seen going from all parts of the City to the general rendezvous, in Fourteenth street. Gov. Morgan, commander-in-chief, appeared in full uniform on his " gallant grey charger," wearing a chapeau, with white and yellow plume, and with the State arms on one side in gold embroidery. Some five thousand troops were on parade, In fantry, Cavalry, Hussars, Lancers, and Artillery; and though few in numbers, yet very attractive, were a detachment of the veterans of 1812, with their quaint old uniforms, and having a park of six brass howitzers, nicely mounted and drawn by fine horses. Many of these xnen seem quite aged, one holding the rank of Colonel was espe cially interesting, with his long silver locks float ing round his shoulders. Perhaps though the most prominent individual in the cavalcade was General Paez, Ex-President of Venezuela. The old General was dressed in a magnificent uniform, loaded with gold embroidery. He wore also a badge of honor, presented to him by the King of Sweden. And the " cross of the Legion of Honor," of France, presented by King Louis Phillipe. and by his side hung the golden scab bard and diamond hilted sword, given him by the Congress of Venezuela, he having been twice President of the Republic Personally he is one among the finest looking old men 1 have ever seen. Upon this occasion he presented to company II., of -' the City Horse Guards," the flag of Vene zuela as a token of his gratitude for honors shown him upon his former visit to New York. He made a short and appropriate speech which was re sponded to by an officer in command. After the troops passed in review by marching and countermarching, mid shouts of applause from a multitude numbering some twenty thou sand, the various Regiments and Battalions were dismissed, and the day, with its grand spectacle, ended to give place, ere long, to some new excite ment. Yours Truly, MANHATTAtfA. A Queer Remedy. A good lady, who had two children sick with the measles, wrote to a friend for the best reniedjr. The friend had just received a note from another lady, inquiring the way to make'-ffickles. In the confusion, the .ady who enquired about the pickles, received the remedy of the measles, and the anxious mother f the sick children read with horror the follow- inr: "fecald them three or tour times in verv aot vinegar, and sprinkle them well with salt; in a few days they will be cured." " Notice to Quit." The Columbus (Geo.) Sun mentions the arrest in that city of William Scott, a member of a New York firm. An open expression of sympathy for " Old Brown,"" and the possession of Beecher's incendiary sermons, were the occasion of his arrest. He receivd " no ace to quit," and took his departure by the first train. Counterfeit Half Dollars. We learn that within a few days past a number cf counterfeit half dollars have been put iu circulation in this ytace. One of them has been handed to us. It is slightly thinner than thegenuine coin, has not so clear a ring, and has a greasy feeling. With these exceptions it is a remarkably good imita ion, and well calculated to deceive. The one we have has the date 1834. Observer.

An Interesting Inciter. The following verv interesting letter written by a gentleman of extensive information and who was formetly a citizen of North Carolina but now a resident of New York, will be read with much interest. The letter was addressed to a personal friend of the writer at whose request it is publish ed, the author having kindly . consented to its ap- proved and adorned at New York, and the only reliable statistics which have ever been published concerning that immense undertaking: New York, Sept. 14th, 1859. Dear Doctor: Understanding that you have returned from the Virginia Springs, where you have been mingling with the gay throng who frequent that popular place of summer resort for r . t ' v -V.I . . . our southerners, generally, x thought mat in your comparative retirement to the duties of pro fessional life in a country neighborhood, a few lines from a friend, now residing in this great metropolis, might not be considered a tax upon your time and patience too onerous for you to bear. I therefore proceed to inflict upon you the punishment of readiug, at your leisure, the follow ing " pencelling3 Ly the way." Our city at the present time is quite full of strangers, many of whom aro Southerners, just returning from the various fashionable watering places of the North, where they have been spend ing the hard earnings of the Southern darkies in revelling in luxury and ease, and contributing to swell the purses of many Northern fanatics, who did they possess the power, would rend asunder this beautiful Union, by precipitating the country into . a general war on the ''.nigger ' question- The cotton crop of the South, worth some tw-a Itunderd million of dollars, together with other agricultural products, has contributed large ly to build up this great Metropolis, and also to enrich the whole surrounding country; and our Northern friends instead of attempting to array one section of the Union against the other, sliould studiously labor to cement the bonds of Union, by which we are now held together,-and thus transmit to other generations the sacred boon, which we have received from our forefathers. New York City has apparently never been more prosperous than at the present time. Some por tions of Broadway, are so much obstructed by building materials that it's quite difficult to make your way through that great thoroughfare. Many large and truly magnificent buildings to be occu pied by our wholesale merchants, are now in course of erection on that beautiful street, which in their vast capacity for business purposes as well as their exceedingly tasteful architectural arrangements, will put to the blush thousands of stately storehouses which have hitherto been re garded as perfect palaces for business. On the ground where the old "Broadway Theatre " formerly stood a store house of white marble front is being erected for one of our dry goods firms, at a cost of an annual rent of sixty thousand dollars! The " Fifth Avenue Hotel" which fronts on Madison Square, Broadway, 5th Avenue, 23d and 24th streets, is a perfect gem in its way, and already hundreds of our Southerners, with their wives and daughters, are feasting on the good things provided for them by the accomplish ed Alabamian who dispenses its hospitalities. It is proposed to introduceinto this house, steam " Dummies," for hoisting the guests to the upper floor, without subjecting them to the fatigue of walking up stairs, which you know is always la borious, and especially so immediately after din ner, in the dining loom ot this hotel you see no walls at all, it is all columns and French plate mirrors ; and before taking a seat at the table, it is ouite necessarv to look to your toilet arrange ments, as the least speck or imperfection on your dress is reflected by the immense sea of mirrors around you, and exposed to the full view of bun dreds of charming maidens, who cling to the arms of their lovers, in their promenades to an eligible seat. Some two weeks since I accepted an invitation from a friend, who is iu business in the city, (and has his residence at Carmansville .some 9 miles out,) to accompany him to. his home and spend the Sabbath. I found this a most delightful trip, we went out by the steamer on the Harlem River, and returned on Monday morning, driving my friend's own team. Going out we passed Black well's Island which is the place where most all of the Public Institutions are located. The grounds are pleasantly and tastefully laid out, and present quite an attractive landscape to the eye. At, and near Carmansville there are many things to interest you. The country residences are generally fine: and many of them command a full view, either of the Hudson or Harlem Riv ers. At this place reside the faaiily of the larc Mr. Andubon, of Louisiana, whose work or; " Onithology " is the finest ever produced. Two copies of this work can be found in our State. (N. C.) one in the public library, and the other in the Female School of the Rev. Mr. Smeads at Raleigh. The cost has heretofore been $800 for the four volumes ; but the sons of Mr. A. propose to get up a cheap edition, which will much in crease its circulation. Mrs. Andubon, widow ot the professor, now 80 years of age, is quite a stylish and accomplished lady, and is very handsome, and full of energy. She has a school for the benefit of her grand children, and is a charm to the whole family circle. Near this place, reside also the reputed widow of the celebrated Aaron Burr; (the rival and pe rhaps superior of Alexan der Hamilton.) She is known as " Madame Ju melle," and is nearly one hundred years of age. and has her physical and mental faculties still unimpared. She has a property hereof 200 acres of land, which -was purchased forty .years ago for a mere trifle, but is now worth some five thous and dollars per acre. She lives in magnificent style, and her method of driving out is with four horses; the near horse front and wheel being topped with a rider after the old European fash ion. In her visit to her native country, (France,) a few years since, ' Madame Jumelle " was re ceived into the highest circles, and everywhere treated as a queen or princess. Leaving this delightful spot, my friend and my self took a drive to Washington Heights," im mediately on the Hudson River. This place is generally improved by magnificent country resi dences, occupied generally either by retired mer chants or gentlemen of fortune. While here I could not forego the pleasure bf paying a visit to the grounds of James Gordon Bennett, Editor of the New York Herald. His place has a Park of 40 acres, beautifully graded and gravelled, laid out in serpentine walks and pleasure drives, skirt ed with every variety of evergreen and flower, both exotic and indigenous, and improved in the hio-hest nossihlfi manner. Amnntr thp hnildln'Ts vTf. ' . Tij"3r" - there is a stately family mansion, a splendid billiard and bowling-room, where his corps of editors and other friends from the city occasionally meet for fun and recreation. He has a stable and some 10 head of fine horses; some 7 carriages of various styles, and a large cistern on the top of the building holding water sufficient to flood the building at short notice. His whole premises are lighted with gas made on the grounds; and can be watered at pleasure, by an apparatus or force pump through which flows a bountiful supply of pure water. I was met at the outer gate by two servanfs who declined to admit me, stating that Mr. Bennett had to adopt this rigid course on account of the great annoyance indicted on.diim by hundreds of the curious from the city.-' I however insisted that I had heard and handing my card to the servant bid him take it to Mr. B. The servant soon returned and in vited me in ; on approaching the mansion I was met by Mr. Bennett, who kindlv requested me either to walk or drive through the grounds. I ac cepted his invitation ; and had both a tlrive ard walk. Mr. Bennett is a gentleman quite "above the ordinary size. His hair quito gray, and his manner and general bearing quite gentlemanly. He seems to be about 60 years of age. His man sion and grounds are' worth about one hundred thousand dollars. The Right Rev. Bishop Ives, formerly Bishop of your State, lives here in fine style. He is a professor in a college for making Catholic Priests. Ex-Mayor Wood, and Mayor Tieman both live on the road to this place. The next object of general interest to me, was to see what is here known as the "High Bridge." This Bridge was commenced in 1839 and finished in 1843. It spans the Harlem river. The cost is one million dollars ; and it is perhaps the most durable structure of the kind to be found in this country. Across this bridge are two iron pipes, each 3o inches in diameter, for conveying the water from "Croton River " across the Har lem, into the city. The length of the aqueduct by which the water is brought from the Croton River to 8Cth street is 38 miles and 12-100 of a mile. The size of the acquednct is 8 feet high and 7k feet wide: arched at the top, and inverted arch at the bottom. The Lake at Croton river is C feet deep and contains at one time five hundred million gallons water, thirty-five millions of which passes over the "High Bridge" daily into the eitj-, and is thence distributed through the vari ous streets, through pipes reaching 202 miles, and varying in size from 10 to 30 inches. The water is drawn off once a 3Tear to make an examination of the acqneduct; persons passing through this under-ground road for 38 miles. The entire cost of the acqueduct is eight and a half millions of dollars, including the purchase of the land ; and the whole work cost some thirteen mil lions of dollars. Receipts for water rents annual ly about eight hundred thousand dollars ; interest on Croton debt some six hundred thousand dol lars. Expense of distribution and repairs about one hundred and twenty thousand dollars an nually. Present water debt some, nine million dollars. First year's receipts for water rents, in 1842, was thirty two thousand and lifty-three dol lars and seventy-four cents, and this year it is over eight hundred thousand dollars. The present capacity of the reservoir is not sufficient to meet the increasing wants of this large population, and the Commissioners are now engaged in building at the Central Park an addi tional reservoir, which will contain J06 acres of ground. After lingering a time at " High Bridge,'' and feasting- the eyes on the grandeur of this power ful structure, we took a drive to King's Bridge." This Bridge is the line between " New York" and "Westchester" counties, and is distant 14 miles from the Battery. It is also famous for its revolutionary associations. On our way to " King's I.ridfre " we passed the celebrated " Bell Tav ern" in which Gen. Washington once lived. This is a rough stone house of small size ; and con trasts strangely enough with the present mam mouth houses used for hotel purposes. This whole Island of Manhattan is being rapidly im proved, and in the next half century the beau tiful coui.trr of " Kill Jm!u," W.....1 iniid and silverv rivulet, with its romantic and classic as sociations, will all have to give place to the stem necessities of an overgrown population : and where now is heard the song of wild lords, as they move from bough to bow in their unrestrict ed carrollings, then will be heard the clink of the hammer, and other sounds indicative of a teem ing busy population, instinct with life and ener gy and eager for the occumulatiou of worldlv good-s- The "Central Tark " of this City is a work of gre it importance, and promises to be a place of mo.e than ordinary interest, not only to our own citizens, but to the whole Republic; and indeed to persons from all parts of tho world who visit our City, either for business or pleasure. This Park will contain 850 acres of land, and with the exception of " Byisde Bolounge," in France, it will be the largest Park in the world. The length of the Park is 2 miles by a width of half a mile. The roads for carriage drives give a length of 10 miles, on which equestrians may also ride out at their convenience. Then there is a road exclusively for equestrians which reaches some 9 or 10 miles. For pedestrians, there are walks which it is difficult even to give an approximating idea of their length. There is also a " Ramble " of 40 acres, which is beautiful ly shaded and gravelled and is the most cozy place you have ever seen. Ladies and gentlemen promenade through these grounds, and converse on various topics of the day, always being care ful not to mention lure, poetry, or romance. There is also a parade ground of 50 acres, and several play grounds tor children embracing some i0 or 75 acres. There is a special, and rather exclusive prome nade of j of a mile long, beautifully shaded with four rows of elm trees, designed for those who de sire to keep out of the way of the masses who fre quent the "ramble." There is a grand water " terrace " at the end of the promenade. There are a great many transverse roads which are used for commercial, and other purposes, for heavy waggons, drays, &c, Sec. These at the crossings are always under the pleasure roads, so as to avoid collissions. The skating pond for ladies and gen tlemen has 20 acres. On the grounds of this Park there is at present engaged 29U0 hands exclusive of the corps of engineers and board of commis sioners. The present commission for directing this mammouth wlcf wJncbTwas created Iry the State Legislature in 1857, has yet two years be fore them ; but the final completion of the work will require some 5 to 7 years more. Up to the first day of last July, the expense for work reach ed the amount of one million and fifty thousand dollars, and the purchase of lands from private individuals amounted to five and a half millions of dollars. The original amount allowed by the act of the Legislature for PrA; Improvements was one and a half millions, but the probable amount required for completion, will be some over three "and a half millions of dollars, which ad ded to the cost of land,&c, will reach the large figure of nine millions of dollars. The taxable property in the vicinity of the Park, has in three years, increased in value (over and above former value) seven and a half millions of dollars; .and in a few years the in crease will be more thf.n the entire cost of the Park including lands and labor. The "Central Park Fund Stock " is redeemable in 45 years at o per cent, premium, ana oi course exempt irom taxation. Among the fine Parks of the world, are "St. James" in Fn gland, 87 acres, Green Park 5-3 acres, Buckingham Pallace Garden 40 acres, "Re gents Park " in Lonaon, 450 acres, Victoria 300 acres, Hyde 1'arK. ju acres, ana ivensmgton Garden" 300 acres. Thus y 3ii will se3, that with a sinzle exception, we shall have the hirgest Park in the world ; the value of which, in , dollars and cents, large as it may seem, dwindled into utter insignijicarice, when compared to the inestimable benefit which it will confer upon the inhabitants of this densely crowded city. ; Truly Yours . n. NOTHING LATER. We received nothing later from the Virginia excitement last night save that soldiers and mu nitions of war continue to arrive at Charlestown. To-morrow Old Brown will have to meet his doom. Tlir Albrmnrlc mid Chmnpenltc C'liunl. We have received a copy of tho Report of tho Board of Directors and Chief Engineer of tho above work, which reports show that this impor tant improvement is progressing in a very satis factory manner. We copy tho following extracts from the Report of the Directors : At the date of the last Report, the distance re maing to be excavated to complete a connection between the Albemarle and the Chesapeake, was During the year'tTils distance lias been excava" ted, a .d the lock has been completed, so that there is now a continuous channel through the entire line, of sufficient capacity for lighters and . barges, and for steamers and other vessels not drawing more than five feet of water. The bridges have been completed ; and in fact, all of the mechanical work on the entire line, ex cept houses for the bridge-keepers, is now com plete, and will compare favorably with that of any other public improvement in the country. From the Report of the Chief Engineer, it ap pears that for about two-thirds of its entire length, the C mal is excavated to the required width of sixty-one feet at the water-line, and for the re mainder to one-half the required width, the whole having an average depth of six feet water, tho least depth being five and a half feet. The steam dredges or excavators are constant ly at work, and at the rate of progress they aro uow making, the North Carolina section will bo excavated to the width of sixty-one feet by tho first of March next, and the whole Canal will bo excavated to that width by the first of August or September next, with a constantly improving navigation from the present time forward. After August or September, the depth of water through the whole Canal will be seven feet. The Company have purchased one steamtug, and are now making arrangements for the other necessary steamboats, in order to be ready for the fall and winter business. Since our last Report, tho State of North Caro lina has subscribed to the stock of this Company the additional surq of $100,000, authorized by thd Act of 1857, thus making the whole amount of the State subscription Jjjs.'JoO.oOO, all of which has been paid in six per cent, coupon bonds. The original plan of the Company was to open a Canal with six feet depth of water, and the con tract first made calls for only that depth ; but when the State ot North Carolina came in as a stockholder, she required, as a condition of her subscription, that tho Canal should have sufficient depth, at .all times, to pass vessels drawing seven and a half feet, and the Company having become satisfied that a six feet Canal would not acconi plish their design of accommodating the entiro trade of Eastern North Carolina, the plan was changed to that of a Canal with eight feet depth of water. The lock has been constructed with reference to that depth. During the past year the Company have enter ed into a contract with Messrs. Courtright Bar ton for all the additional work consequent upon the change of plan. With regard to the cost of the construction and equipment of the Canal upon the enlarged plan, the Board are still of the opinion that it will but little if any, exceed the amount heretofore esti mated, viz: $1,250,000. The avails of stock subscriptions at par, inclu ding sums received and to be received, amount, as will be seen by the accompanying statement, to 19,400. In order to raise the additional sum necessary to complete the Canal, the Company have execu ted a mortgage upon their property for $ 100.000, to secure an equal amount of coupon bonds, tho avails of which will be sufficient, eve n in caso no means are received from other sources, to com plete and stock the Canal. Though the mortgage is for $400,000, it is not the intention of the Company to offer, at present, more than $2! 0,000 of the bonds; the avails of which, with the amount coming due on subscrip tion, will furnish all the equipments .and motivo power, at present required upon the Canal, and carry the work along until after the meeting of the next North Carolina Legislature, w hen it is confidently expected that the State will take stock for whatever additional amount may be necessary to coinpelte the Canal, luthis event the Company will be relieve.! from issuing tho balance of the bonds provided for in the mort gage. In view too, of the fact that thi woik has re lieved tiie (Jeueral Government from making tho channel to tin: ocean, which they had commenced at Nag's Head, and which w, nil. I have involved an expenditure of some $5,010,00,1, the Bond have good reason to expect that an appropriation may be obtained from Congress, for the improve ment of the natural waters connected with the Canal. In this event also, the Company will bo relieved from issuing more than the $2'0,000 now o tie red As yet. none of the bonds have been disposed of. Wmkki: are Tiir.Y ? The Richmond Dispatch has the following paragraph. We fear it calls in vain for Northern Conservatists there are few of them left : The extravagant rumors which aro set afloat are suggested by the course of Northern people, and their sympathies with the outlaws who hao murdered our citizens. They have one good ef fect they at least show with wdiat readiness our people respond to the calls of the constituted au thorities in the hour of danger. It is for the North to consider seriously how far a Staie of this Union is to be disturbed, and the lives of its people threatened by the schemes and mad ap peals of tho people in their midst. It is for the North to consider now how much the Union is worth, and whether it can continue in the face of these outrages. '! he soberest and most conserv ative citizens of Virginia have come to regard it as of no value at all, if these things are to con tinue. Let the Northern conservatives show their hands. They have been talked of long enough. It is time they had done something to prove their loyalty to the Union. Annual ITIrtliodiNt Conference. The Annual Conference of the Methodist Episco pal Church of North Carolina will assemble in Beau fort on the lith of December, next Wednesday week, and having made arrangements to have its doings reported for the Progress, we would eay to those wl: o may wish to procure the proceedings of th at body at the earliest moment that the paper will be sent to uny address from the 14th to the 1st of Jan uary for 50 cents, with postage prepaid. Persons wanting the Progress containing the Conference pro ceedings will please send in their names with the 50 cents rxiclosed by the 14th instant. Stopped The Steamboat Post Boy, which ar rived here yesterday from Hyde county, has made its last trip, we learn, for th.; present. The truth must out, the project has curjlumviuxcil for want of the " sinews of war" it don't pay and it lias to stop. We could wish it different, but it's no use ; the boiler is burnt out, the boat needs a new one there; is no money intlie treasury of the company the line won't pay no how, and tke boat mut lie up or seek a new field. December. To-day old Winter commences in earnest and we may reasonably look for cold and se vere weather. The Fall has been extremely mild and pleasant, and the general impression is, we be lieve, that a hard winter will follow it. IMPORTANT FROM MEXICO. New OitLKANf?, Noy. 2J. Dates from the City of Mexico to Nov. 19th have been received. The Constitutionalists lost at Gueretaro 21 can non and a large number, of prisoners, including Generals Alvarez, Tarsia, and an American officer. The latter was shot against the remonstaaces of the British Minister. A battle had taken place at Tulancango ; 400 were killed and half the town burnt The Libe rals were victorious. It was reported that a compromise had been proposed between Juarez, Robles, and Miramon : Juarez to be Provisional President at the City of Mexico; the Constitution of '57 to bo restored, and the laws confiscating the Church property to he annulled. Sale at Moreiiead. The sale of lots at More head City last Thursday was small in comparison with those of former periods amounting to about $7000. Prices however were well sustained, There are many improvements going on and wo were pleased to note that several who purchased last Thursday evidenced a disposition to improve immediately.
