"b?att? term" is npou us, and the Gothnmites hre Hocking by I thousands to the" numerous delight j ful summer retreats which surround this great metropolis. To the stranger, this hegira is impercepti ? ble, from tho fact that, owing to the great competition between the differ? ent lines to Boston, tho residents of that "village" and tho adjacent coun? try, como down in crowds to enjoy a few days' sight-seeing. The regular faro is $5, but it has been reduced to PLACES OP AMUSEMENT. The theatres aro all in full blast. Brougham's last-"The Lottery of Life," at Wallack's-has, contrary to lotteries in general, furnished all prizes; tho in ves tan ts in seats re? ceive in enjoyment far more than the amount of "stamps" paid; while tho proprietors reap a rich harvest, as the house is filled to overflowing nightly. The play is replete with capital hits, and the local scenes represented are excellent. Brougham personates "Teddy, the swell," a rollicking, devil-may-care, heart-in-the-right place sort of genius, who has spells of honesty, which sometimes prove serious. Tho other characters arc well sustained. In the play is intro? duced an accurate imitation of u well-known "handsame waiter girl saloon;" and among tho other attrnc tions ?8 a small boy, scarcely Sever years old, who delights the audience, and is nightly encored, by his eapi tal dancing, besides imitations o Forrest and Booth. There is "A Flash of Lightning" a the Broadway every night, but nc one in tho audience has yet beet struck, that wo are aware of-at least not very favorably, with either th? play or tho players. "Humpty Dumpty," at the Olyni pic, has reached its 107th representa tion, and bids fair to run fully 10i more. It is of a character to pleas* young ns well as old. Tho successor of the " Bloc! Crook," at Niblo's-tho "Whit Fawn"-has not been overly success ful; which, wo suppose, is to b attributed to the present politico state of tho country-"black" bein in the ascendant, aud "white," con sequently, forced to play secou fiddle. Tho scenes in the "Fawn are really superior, in an artisti view, to thoso of tho "Crook;" bu the former was so long on the board that scenic admirers have becom sated. The dancing in this piec cannot be excelled. The Now York, Bowery, Stadt, au other theatres of tho city, aro drav ing very well-all of them bavin passed into what is termed "tb summer season." The finest, and, said, the most commodious theati in New York, is now being erecto in the upper part of tho Sixth av< I nne by "Richelieu" Booth. It ia 1 I have a white marble front, aud wi doubtless be occupied during tl; coming winter. "Burnt cork" hi I its admirers, also; and the San Frai cisco, Kelly & Leon's, Bryant's, at other minstrels, are playing to pa; ing houses. There are more tin thirty places of amusement opi everj night, so that play-goers ha1 a large field from which to mal their selections. HOW TUE SABBATH IS PASSED. Gotham boasts of moro thau 4i churches, while many others aro process of erection. Sunday mol? ing and afternoon, these sacred et fices aro filled with earnest admire of tho Rev. Mr. Ton-thousand-a-yct and-furnished-house, many of whoi in the evening of tho same day, n equally gratified with the op?rai airs and other secular pieces, pi ducod at "Palace Garden" aud sin lar concert halls. The vagaries these amusement-seekers, be it i membered, are not the rule, but t exception; there are many, ve many, good and truo men and v mon, who "remember tho Sabba day, to keep it holy." Pic-nics a excursions aro regularly ndvertis in tho Suuday papers, and it is i thiug uncommon to seo parties turning to their homes, in tho aft noon of that sacred day, with lai baskets, the contents of which th had been regaling themselves wi at Hoboken, Jones' Wood, Lil man's Park, etc. These parties i composed, principally, of the poo classes, who consider the Snbbi properly devoted to rest and recr tion. THE CENTRAL PARK. A drive or a walk through the C tral Park is something to be reme bured for a life-time. The immei gronnds are kept in excellent ord and the dirt roods are as firm c level as tho most even floor. A i on the lako (ot the modest cost of cents,) the boots constantly surrou ed by grocoful ewans and duck: varions kinds, is a rare treat, i m menso ooncourao of visitors is o stautly in the park, from carly m until lalo ut night. I'olicem dressed in groy, aro in attendu and porfect order is maintained, description-or an attempt at on of tho many attractions, would impossible; the park must be visi -again, and. again, and again-tc ? . . ytn;m ?b.k-,.-?

From an elevated poi?t,"?we obtained a magnificent view of the great city at our feet, with its myri? ads of gas lights. The seen o was en? chanting, and tended to make one commit-poetry. We abstained, however. Tho Stetson's-who, by the way, are going it strong in the hotel line-have a restaurant within the park, where substantials and fluids, of a character to dispel poetio ideas, are famished in unlimited quantities. THE BEOW BRIDGE. Tho great Broadway "Leow" bridge, about which so much has been said, it is thought will be re? moved. It does nut answer the pur? pose for which it was erected-very few persons, except sight-seers, ever crossing it. WOOD VS. GRANITE. Tho Nicholson (wood) pavemout has been laid in several streets, und I is generally admired. Horses travel lightly over it, and vehicles make but little noise. It will probably super cede the granite eventually, (although Broadway is being relaid with granite at present;) as a consequence, ve? hicles in tho vicinity aro getting wedged constantly-for several blocks, in some instances. THE EXCISE. At 12 o'clock, every night, and during tho entire day, on Sunday, the bar rooms are closed, and detec? tives are constantly on the alert to arrest delinquents. Tho penalty is very severe. Thirsty mortals are .sometimes put to their trumps, but old habitues learn them "the ropes," and the law is evaded. MEETENU OF THE DEMOCRATIC CON? VENTION. Extensive preparations are being made for tho accommodation of those who attend tho Democratic National Convention, to assemble on the Fourth of July. A million strangers aro calculated upon. It will, doult less, be a revival of the old Crystal Palaco days, when "everybody and his wife" appeared to bo in tho city. Chase seems to be tho favorite here; and Southerners aro freely questioned as to his status. IMPROVEMENTS. Of course, Broadway is not yet finished; as tho work of tearing down and building up continues daily. The finest front in tho city will bo the Park Bank, located between Ful? ton and Ann streets. It is elegant beyond description-white marble, relieved by pillars and statuary. Stewart, "ye dry goods king," is increasing his mum moth establish? ment; it lacks bnt a small space about thirty by sixty feet-of cover? ing the entire block, bounded by Broadway, Fourth avenue, and Ninth and Tenth streets. On tho ex? piration of the lease of theso build? ings, tho merchant prince will cover the entiro space with his palatial monument.to Mammon. A CAPITAL STOPPING PLACE. The hostelry from which this epis? tle is indicted, is situated on the corner of Canal and Centre streets little moro than a block from Broad? way, and in tho business part of the city. It is presided over by the vete? ran William P. Eai'le, of tho old Park Placo Hotel notoriety, assisted by his sons, William H., Ferdinand and Eugene. This establishment is in trim at all times; the rooms aro neatly and handsomely furnished, and guests are attended to with alac? rity-a host of clerks, book-keepers, waiters, chambermaids, etc., being constantly in attendance. The meals -which in quality aro unexcelled aro served at hours suited to the con? venience of cither tho early bird or tho sluggard; breakfast from 7 to ll; dinner 1 to 4; and supper from G to -almost any hour. Tho dining room is largo and very airy, aud as the best of cooks aro employed, the visitor-never mind how captions he may be disposed-will bo pleased in spite of himself. A proof of the high reputation of this hotel, is tho fact that it is always well filled by travelers from the four points of the compass. Cars running to various sections of tho city, as well ns tho principal railroad depots and wharves, pass the building every few minutes. Take it nil in all, we know of no hotel in the city which offers such inducements and attractions as Earle's, and, too, nt such reasonable rates-$3 per day, while many others charge St, $4.50 and $5. Attached to the hotel is a telegraph, railroad, accident insurance und theatre ticket office, under the supervision of Mr. G. H. Lansing. Guests can hero forward a despatch to tho remotest quarter of tho globe; purchase a ticket over tho main railroad and steamboat bines; insure their lives and limbs against accident; or secure a seat in either of the theatres-and all at the current prices. This is a great convenienco, which strangers fully appreciate. Lot any of your readers give Earle's a trial, and our Word for it, they will bo highly pleased. THE HORRO UNDINGS. Besides tho delightful voyage up thG Hudson (or North) River, wo know of nothing to excel tho sail to Staten Island-ten miles down tho bay. Just now, tho numerous trees which adorn tho island are clothed in varied green, and t'?e handsome residences peeping out, present a beautiful oppoaranco. A\ couple of boars can be pleasantly bpeh't On the trip, at a very small outlay-twenty five cents. NEWSPAPERS AND MAGAZINES. . Pictorial and sensation sheets, newspapers and magazines, are the rage. Nearly every day a now one makes its appearance-the price of a copy ranging from one to thirty cents. A few weeks suffices to end I tho lives of many of these nonde? script publications; while others sur? vive, and the proprietors realize | largo annis from them. FINIS. Thero aro very few Southerners | here at present. We had the plea? sure, a few days ago, of meoting tho Rev. J. M. Pringle, of Columbia, | who is on a collecting tour for tho | benefit of his church. He is highly ! gratified at his success so far. Rev. Mr. Plumer, of the Theological Semi? nary, delivered an eloquent discourse to a crowded audience, at one of the up-towu churches, last Sunday. COSMOPOLITE. DESTRUCTIVE FUIES.-About a quarter past ll o'clock, on Saturday night, an alarm of fire was sounded in Ward 3. The fire was at tho paint and oil store of Messrs. Holmes & Calder, 126 Meeting street. Tho flames soon spread to the building adjoining, next North, and occupied as a wholesale crockery store by Mr. W. L. Webb. The only other build? ing in imminent danger, was tho tull storehouse of Messrs. E. Bates & Co., which, thanks to the unwearied efforts of tho bravo and gallant fire? men, escaped without nuy serious damage. The rear of the storehouse of Messrs. Campbell, Knox & Co., in Hasel street, was also slightly in? jured. The stock of Messrs. Holmes Sc Calder was almost a total loss. They are iusurcd for $14,000. Tho house was insured. The house occupied bv Mr. Webb was insured for $10,000, and his stock for $15,000. About half-past 2, this morning, a fire broke ont in tho storehouse lately occupied by Dowie & Moise, from which it spread to the store next adjoining, occupied by Goodrich, Wineman Sc Co., and to tho house next South, occupied by Dewing, Burkett Sc Co. At the time we were going to press-3 a. m.-tho fire was still fiercely raging. I Cluirlcsion Mercury, 22(/ inst. Su RR ATT AGAIN INDICTED.-The Grand Jury of tdio Criminal Court has fourni a truo bill against Joh u IL Barratt, charging him, under tho second section of tho Act of July 17, loG'2, with giving aid aud comfort to tho enemy. The section is as follows: He il enacted, iOt\, That if any per? son shall hereafter set on foot or engage in an}' rebellion or insuri cc tion against tho authority of the United States or laws thereof, or shall give aid and comfort thereto, or shall give aid and comfort to any existing rebellion or insurrection, and bo convicted thereof, such per? son shall bo puuiahed by imprison? ment for a period not exceeding ten voars, or by a line not exceeding $10,000, and by the liberation of his slaves, if any ho have, or by both of said punishments, at? tho discretion of the Court. A gentleman once said to Rowland Hill: *Tt is sixty-five years since I first heard you preach, and tho ser? mon was well worth while remember? ing. Yon remarked that some peo? ple uro very squeamish about the manner of a clergyman in preaching, but yon then added, "Supposing one is hearing a will read, expoctiug to receive a legacy, would you employ tho timo in criticising thc lawyer's manner while reading it? No; you would give all your interest to ascer? tain if anything were left to yourself, and how much. Let that, theu, be the way in which you listen to the Gospel." A shocking accident occurred in New York, on tho 18th iustaut. Steam engine No. 9 was workiug on a lire near tho Bowery Theatre, as tho audieueo was retiring, when tho boiler exploded, killing five persons immediately, and wounding thirty or forty more. The explosion is sup? posed to have resulted from a lack of water in tho boiler, tho iron plates becoming over-heated and tho cold water being suddenly putin, generat? ed a species of gas as well as steam, thereby causing the explosion, which blow tho boiler into fragments, many of which wero cast n long distance from where tho engino Btood. It is said that Napoleon employs many of tho demi-monde a? his spies and agents; and Garrino, tho Italian, who was for four years in his seorct sorvice, says that a fashionable bagnio has boen set up with money from tho Emperor's privy purse in every capital in Europe, and in three American cities, by women who act us spies for Napoleon, who send him daily or weekly reports. A terrible thunder-storm prevailed in Ohio uud Indiana on Wednesday night, the rain falling in torrents from midnight till daylight. Con? siderable damage Was done to rail? roads, and trains wero dolnved some? what. Several houses wero destroyed by lightning, and in Cincinnati nu? merous cellars wero overflowed and their contents ruined. fe" ! ' A young gb a pf the Arno children und?>- 'lotection of tho Areli- Bishop oi Algiers, states that she is tho only child left of five of her family, the other four having been successively killed and eaten by their parents. On search being made, the bones were discovered in the cabin. STRAWBERRIES.-On Monday, the cars of the Camdon and Atlantio Railroad brought to Philadelphia, from various places along the road, 125, OOO quarts of strawberries. 50,01)0 quarts were re-shipped to New York, and 75,000 quarts were for Philadel? phia. ""ho Wilmington Journal gives an account of a disgraceful riot in that place, on Saturday night, in conse? quence of the attempt of n mob of infill into negroes to rescue from the custody of tho police a negro who had been caught by two white men in the act of stealing. UNDER ARREST.-Eight citizens and a negro, from Kershaw District, were brought to this city by a mili? tary guard Saturday last, from Cam? den, where they were arrested, on suspicion of being implicated in the murder of Dill.-Charleston Courier.

The Paraguayaus havo armed 4,000 wo? men to guard communications. The steamboat Daniel Drew, the other day, ran fourteen and a half miles in thirty-four minutes, with a pressure of only thirty-five pounds of stenm.
