Growth of the City Health and lhisir nets Prospects Gossip about the Fashions The Nicholson Pavement The Street Car War and the Great Bridge Memphians up the Rieer. Correspondence Public Lidiiib. Et. Louis, August 27, 1807. According to a census taken several months ago, this city can now boast up wards of 230,000 inhabitants, and is rap idly increasing in population, extent and commercial importance. It has al most been wholly exempt from cholera this season,' and other epidemios fatal to the prosperity of Targe cities, which fact is mainly attributable to the strict sani tary precautious taken by the Board of Health. Trade here is characterized by a much greater activity than at Memphis; aad the long lines and huge piles of boxes on almost every street, evidencing the receipt of the fall stock, has given an impetus to all the different branches of trade, and -made the streets present a much livelier appearance than a few weeks ago. St Louis can rejoice with Memphis in the possession of the Nicholson pave ment, which covers most of the principal streets, aud is being vigorously laid on the bulance. The only difference be tween the process of laying the pave ing here and the Memphis plan is, that hero the sap and air is expelled by hydraulic force from the blocks, which are then saturated with a fluid that ren ders them entirely impervious to water, and consequently much more durable. St Louis streets have a cleanly ap pearance at all times, and are entirely rid of garbage, decaying vegetable mat ter, and that pestiferous article of mud, which abounds in such superfluity on our principal thoroughfare that liquid abomination dubbed " Main street." Fourth street is the fashionable thor oughfare here, and is daily thronged with legions of blushing maids and gush ing widows, all radiant with smiles, redo lent with Email de Paris, and redundant in that article of bacholorio horror and unconquerable feminine tenacity the irrepressible and everlasting crinoline. Excessive skirts and long trails are some what out of vogue, however, and the scant attire a la Black Crook is rapidly superceding them. The long dresses, it is asserted, prevent the " dear ones " from making a display of that " magic in a lady's foot." Who is not an ardent admirer of this improvement iu the fem inine costume and does not hope the fair fashionables will continue the short dresses, and, if necessary, carry them to the hight of the fashions. In perambulating Fourth street, the eye is attracted by objects which would well nigh disturb the saintship of an anchorite, in the Bhape of mammoth chignons artistically manipulated the cynosure of many eyes and the subject of as many complimentary swmarks towering alott in conical proportions essaying perhaps to rival the Pyramids of Egypt in altitude, and seemingly un conscious or sublimely indifferent of the soft superstructure on which some repose. The hair is with somo, who are extremely iYenchy, colored Bismarck brown, to accord with the style in vogue in the trans-Atlantic headcenter of fashions and vagaries. " There is no accounting for taste," eto. 'Thestraet cars here are liberally pa tronized and are yielding handsome re turns to the owners. They charge only five cents a ride from one end of the city to the other, a distance of ten miles or more. Only think of our one mile and ten cent ride in Memphis. Their char ter allows only five cents, but several of the companies, a week or two ago, at tempted to extort six cents, and adopted the motto of "six center tyrannis," and reluctant passengers were forciblyejected from the cars by the conductors. The consequence has been, numerous prose cutions have been instituted against the railroad companies, without any other result, however, than their dismissal. We know not on what grounds this ac tion was based, unless it is that whatever the conductors take is nothing but fair (fare). A convention of Topographical engi neers have recently been examining the river banks, and are now in session at the Southern Hotel, discussing measures looking to the building of a bridge across the Mississippi at tbis point The plan has been declared feasible, though not without an immense expenditure of mo ney, and the work will soon be com menced. It is designed to build a truss bridge of two spans, of a suffiaient elevation to obviate the possibility of obstruction to navigation. If Louis XV of France could be restored to life and permitted to revisit this sublunary sphere, and particularly this the greatest commercial metropo lis of the West and the pride of the Mississippi Valley, which is more surely perpetuating his patronymic and linking it indissolubly with immortalily than the fame of any great and noble dee As he-ever performed be never would take it for an American State, but as a province of Holland or one of the Slates of the German Confederation, for the Teutons are the ruling element here, and control nearly every branch of the city government The King's English is not entirely attrgetpielt, however, a there is a large Southern element, dis franchised, at present, as in Tennessee, a j Bj JW but which represent at least two-thirds of the talent, wealth and aristocracy of the city, and who never fail when occa sion requires to give expression to their deep sealed love of freedom and their inextinguishable, detestation of the in quisitorial and Jacobinical despotism which weighs down like an incubus the energies of the State, and prevents a de velopment of her immense resources. Since my sojourn here I have noticed the arrivals of S. P. Walker, sr., S. P. Walker, jr., Robertson Topp, D. Cock rell, A. J. Keller, M. J.

Grants last Letter a Masterpiece of Stratew-Sheridan Killed Off We owe Grant an Expression of Grali tude. Correspondence Public Lsoork. The test of military genius is success; President Lincoln answered the argu nients and assertions of a "Northern Democrat," when he proposed to furnish Grant with any quantity of that peculiar whisky to which he was Addicted. True, as asserted, Grant was not always sue cessful ; neither was Napoleon. Th opinion of your "Damocralic" corre spondent may be very well founded. Unfortunntely, however, for his asser tions as to Grant's weakness, there are other Democrats whose opinions are worth quite as much as his owo. Sher man conceded to Grant the honor of having planned campaigns which broke an " egg shell " and " smashed things to the sea." I may therefore leave this question affecting Grant's stupidity to bo determined by tho rclativo value of Sherman's opinions and of those enter tained by a " Northern Democrat" If the Confederacy had been estab lished, General Lee would have been its second President Is it not reasonable to infer from this conceded fact that the same influences will cause the North lo invest Grant with the highest honors 7 If Grant should do an act which rcn dered him unpopular, the next most military chieftain would grasp the prize, Is it not true that Sheridan has won the hearts of the Northern rabble ? If Grant hud concurred with the President, Sheri dan at this hour, next after Grant, would stand highest in the affections of tho Northern multitude. Sheridan is deemed as "bad a man" as Wendell Phillips or Butler. President Johnson's decreo beheading this violent military satrap, approved by Grant, would surely have made Sheridan President It is bad enough that Louisiana is subjected to his tender mercies. What a magni ficent despot this rude soldier would have proved for the whole South I It is better that Texas and Louisiana should suffer than American freedom be extirpated by -an ignorant adventurer. If Gront deserved the country's admiration and gratitude for no other reason, this letter, having reference to Sheridan, should win universal applause. Sherman may be incapable of deciding upon Grant's merits as a soldier, and your Northern "Democratic correspondent" may be a Wellington or Marlborough; but Grant's letter condemning Sheridan s dethrone ment is surely a masterpiece of partisan strategy. Let me suggest, parenthetically, Messrs. Editors, that your curt criticism upon this lelter of Gen. Grant does him gross injustice. He does not assert the supremacy of Congress, but of the American people. You had read the letter very hurriedly when you penned that editorial commentary. Grant may be an autocrat when made President. I prefer this to the autocracy of Congress. a single tyrant to a hydra bended despotism. Grant may evoke order from chaos and reproduce repub licanism in America. No other man can achieve these results at will, and no other man, better than Grant, can be elected. Those who oppose him are practically the adherents of Butler, Stevens or Sheridan.. Finally, Sheridan's removal may cause Andrew Johnson's impeachment; but Grant's letter removed the Presi dential chair when Sheridan was about to pop down into it Sheridan was brni"1. pot Orant Fkk Thtukcr SOITIIKKN IRON II01SK, o. 370 Front Street.
