i:l, ritrnix :-A I am cxccctlliiKly fond
of tlio ocean, and urn ballilnR, and liavcat
oilier times vllted most of tlio celebrated
resorts for tills licalthful amusement, I
concluded tills year to try Newport. I
have been liero before, several limes, but
not long enough to know much about tho
place, nor Its merits compared with other
Presuming you might bo Interested In
my observations, to know bow things In
this noted and fashionable clly nppear to a
Vernionlor, I havo concluded toglvo you a
leisure hour to dcscrlbo them.
I find upon Inquiry, and a llltlo study,
that Newport has a history qulto Interest
ing, much of It eo new lo me, I venture to
First, you know, It Is tho extreme south
ern point of an Island In Narragansett Hay,
south east of Ihc slalo of Tthodo Island
proper, though belonging to it, and laabout
llflecn miles long, by threo lo six miles
broad j and the town of Newport Is about
Ihrco miles wide, and nine miles long.
Tho whole Island was called Aquldnock,
or as ticnslatcd, "Tho Islo of l'oace," and
was purchased from tho Indians as early
as 1G3S ; but tbo present hislory, and tlio
pcoplo here, claim that It was Inhabited
by tho Northmen, wandering so fir away,
many years beforo Columbus discovered
America i and as ovldcnco of this thoy
show us tho "old ttone mill," as it is called,
standing on a park In Iho midst of tho city.
It derives its namo from an anciont uecu
which was found, lit which a father dcods
to bis son tho lot on which stands "tbo old
slono mill." When or by whom it was
built, or for what purpose, Is not known ;
all that can bo said is, that it Is llko ono
known to oxlst In Orecnland, thcrcforo tho
conjecture that it was built by tho Iotlli-
mcn. I will dcscrlbo It. it is mucn iiko
tho bell lowers, so called, which aro always
found near all tho old Russian castles, it
Is a round tower about flftcen feet In diam
eter, built of all sorts and sizes of stones,
such as wo And on tho surface of Iho ground
to build slono fence, which aro laid up In
shell mortar or cement Hut Is cvory bit as
hard as tho ttono Itself. Tho wall Is about
threo feet thick, and has eight openings or
doors about tho base, which aro arched
very artistically j theso iloorwaysaroabout
soven fed high from tho ground lo tho koy
stone, and four feet wldo, giving tho lower
tho uppearanco or standing on eight pil
lars, of about threo foot diameter, as round
as rough stone could form thorn. Thoro was
onron floor alavo Ihcso doors, making n
second slory, which was lighted by four
openings or windows about two feet squaro
each. Tho lower Is now about thirty feet
high j how much hlghor It was originally
Is not known. Boiuo of Iho top stones aro
fallen oil", Iho old walls aro covered Willi
Ivy. and the wholo surrounded by a hand-
soino Iron fencti lo preservo It from relic
thlovcs and Injury, and altogether It Is a
plcturcsqiio ornament to tho park and a
wonder to tho thousands who visit It.
Thcro tiro soino other buildings, which
mako It certain that other men than tho
Indians onco lived on tills Island, many
years beforo It came Into possession of our
Tho first Inhabitants after Us purchase,
wero Quukcrs i a brotherhood of peaco and
love, which, togother with an excellent
harbor and other advantages, gavo Iho set
tlement a rapid growth, so that In 1774 It
had a population of about 12,000, whllo tho
cKyof Providence, at tlio samo tlmo only
had about 4,000. At that llmo tho pooplo
cnlcrtalncd tho Idea that Nowport was des
tined to bo tho chief commercial city of tho
continent, butdurlng Iho revolutionary war,
In 1770, It foil Into tho hands of tho llrltUh,
tilled up tho wells, cut down shado
trees, and mado such destruction that at
Iho tlmo of tho evacuation day It was shorn
VH.y. f i
Sneaking of lis lorfilily, as I said betorc,
It Is a point of land running out Into tho
ocean, nlno miles long, and threo wide,
sloping lo tho sea on all sides, and nearly
every aero affording excellent building
silos. Tho north part of tho town Is laid
out In largo and productive farms. The
middle of tho town Is tho city, which is
very compact, with narrow streets and
many qnalnt old buildings dating back be
fore tho revolution. Among somo of tho
most important Is tho old Jewish syna
gogue, tho oldest slruclttro of tho kind iu
tho United Stale?, and, I am lold, for a
long llmo the only plaeo whore Hebrew
Rervlco was held In New England, and It
Is used for tho samo purposo still. Noxt,
and near by, Is tho Iledwood Library
building, built In 1707, worth visiting for
its valuablo library and museum of paint
ings, relics and antiquities! next tho State
House, built about tho samo time, from tho
steps of which I am told, tho declaration of
our Independence was read July 20, 1771!,
and which was used for a hospital during
tho war which followed. Then tho Trinity
church, an ancient wooden structure, with
n lofly, graceful spire, whero Illshop
llerklcy preached In 1729, Is slill In good
repair by Iho sauio order. Attending
church Ihero last Sunday, I could but ad
mlro Iho spirit which had preserved every
thing in and about this old church, tho
samu as it was In tho beginning. Tbcro
wero Iho old squaro family pews, the old
sounding board over tho pulpit, theanclcnt
altar, and hanging chandelier and candle
sticks, and the old organ moio than a hun
dred years old, all cuilous to heboid
Ihcso modem limes, but having a sacrcd
ness about them wo lovo to respect. I
found lomb stones Iu tho church-yirrd
dating back to 1C00. Then thcro is Iho
Daptlst church, Iho ilrstof that order ever
built In this country, I am told, still occu
pled I iv them and well filled.
Ono of Iho oldest houses Is tho Vernon
houso on Clark street, whero (ien. George
Washington was cntcttalned by a French
ofllccr; and on Church street tho l'emoso
house, whcio It Is said Washington Joined
In Iho dance at n parly given him"; This Is
now used us a tenement houso and occu
pied by families of foreign blrlb. I am
told that tho church on Marlboro street Is
tho llrst church of tho Methodist order that
was ever built graced with a stccplo j and
It cauecd much disturbance among them
for such wicked digression from tho path
of humility. Tho pcoplo hero tako much
prtdo In pointing out all Ihcso landmarks
of early days, and tho caro thoy havo taken
lo preserve them Is truly eommcndabllc.
Tho south end of the town, overlooking
tlio open sea, Is takcu up by elegant col-
tages and summer residences spuken or.be
foro ; each ono having an aero or more,
somo several acres surrounded by very
high fences, real English elylo; thogrounds
laid out wllh walks and drives, oanament
cd with flowers, statues, and fountains, and
sucli u forest of shado trees as to hido tho
wholo from tho passer by, except ho can
now and then peep through somo opcnln
and obtain a partial view or gllmpso of tlio
paradiso within, which towers up midst all
tho grandeur that art and naluro with Its
choicest follago and Iho smiles of summer
can bestow. Theso palatial homes, owned
and occupied mostly by millionaires, aro
opened only in tho summer season, and
each ono seems lo tho observer to bo au in
dependent dignitary or lord, whoso wholo
business It Is to vlo with nil others In dis
play of fashion, show and extravagance.
This class aro seldom seen to mlnglo with
tho crowd nothing so vulgar I nor seen
at all except at grand receptions and lino
afternoons about flvo o'clock. Then all
tho high gates aro thrown open lo gay
prancing steeds, harnessed In all the glit
tering trappings possible, to carriages of
oxquisito beauty, laden with tho family
adorned Ip all tho rich, lino apparel that
monev can buy and wits Invent j and with

cade, who In lino drlvo up and down Nar
racansett avonuo for two or threo hours,

Of courso as no one Is or can bo prohibited,
nil sorts of hacknoy coaches and go-glgs

lcr Insists that bo wants lo pay botintlos
(with arrears) to surviving conrcdoialo sol

tells Iho blacks In North Carolina that, If
ho wero oloctod prosldonl, ho would assist
In ro-cnslavlng them. Ho Is universally
accused by tho straight republican news
papors with participating In tho Tummany
frauds, and with being a looi on general
principles. It now only remains to tho
Grant parly organs lo convict him or de
bauchery nnd drunkenness lo complcto a
nlcluro as unlnuo for Its dissimilarity to
tho man as ever Iho foul Imaginations of
reckless slanderers conceived. Ciiici'nnafi
sler will havo liecomo as big as an ordina

they nro considered markclaMc. rhllnJcl-
roiii I Co city anil "most of tho hotels, and
although It Is a very flue, haul sandy bot
tom, and a perfectly safo beach for women
and children, fteo front danger, where an
accident was never known, still It Is not a
beach with sufllclent depth and surf to bo
enjoyed by a real lover or salt water bath
ing: thcrcforo this, with tho dlstanco aud
trouble of coming and going so far lo Iho
water, would not Induce ono to stay hero
long for bathing only.
And now tho HILcrnlau and colored
boarding houses aro gelling to bo so very
thick and so well illlcd near tho beach, and
thoy aro so numerous and clamorous for
privileges at tho bithlng houses tho best
tlmo in the day for u bath, It has taken
away tho charm so that a great many do
not go to tlio boach at all. This, with tho
high prices for ovcry thing, here, Is doing
much lo drlvo and keep away visitors, nnd
tho reason tho holds aio so poorly patron
ized this year, I am told, and believe. Ono
business man told mo today that Nowport
was losing visitors every year for Ihcso
reasons. And Newport Is not alone. I
havo been told many a tlmo Iho samo story
about our own town by thoso who h.ivo
been (hero lo spend summers, liuslness
men who go out of tho city lo spend vaca
tion", and go Into Iho country for moun
tain air and sports, expect to go It In rustic
style, and look for cheap living, cheap liv

don't find them they don't go ngaln noi let
olhcis whoiiilhty can prevent. Theycin't
nll'ord to spend a winter's earnings In al'ew
weeks' pleasu o and visit. It Is a very
gitut mistake on Ihc purl of such public
entertainers, nnd Is what keeps so many
empty hotels, water cures, hoarding hous
es and idle livery slables, which also begin
to seo It and feel it, as well as all tho busi

that It eosis tnuio to llvo in llraltlchorn,

Tho Now York Day hook no longor sup-
Canons or Good Dress. First. All
honest and graceful dress should follow, as
r.iras posslblo, tho shapo or tlio body as
devised and found good by 'the great Arti
ficer. All that follow those beautiful linos
must ho themselves beautiful. All that
changes, deforms, or exaggerates Ihoso
lines must bo senseless, ugly, ludicrous,
aud untrue. Whether a gown swell out In-
lo tho hoops urtho great tun or Heidelberg,
or piojttt backward like tho roversesido ot
the llotlentiit Venus, it Isallko hideous. A
gown may bo of many folds, of many
thlckt.estes, but tt should not turn a wo
man Into a taricaluro oi tno lorm uou
made, and made lust of nil.
Secondly. Dress should be as much as
posslblo tiuo and honest; simploaud rich
all good dicss must he. There Is no object,
unless a liedlamllo one, for Instance, In
swelling tho head Into lliosizo of a bushel,
wllh heaps oTtow and shreds or dead pco-
plo'shalr; hair llio antecedents ot which
one shudders to think of. Tho human
head, slinnte to say, was grandly devised
nnd needs no improvement If It bo only
kept well filled with brains. To blow It
out llko a bladder is only what a reathcr-
headed milliner could wish to do. Tho
perfect Ideal or a head Is, wo hold, a well
shaped head, simply bound by braldsonts
own flossy hair, knotted behind or woven
into a crown moro beautiful than that or
Thirdly. No thoughtml person should
feel any pleasure In woarlng sham jewelry
sham anything. All shams aro lies, falso
pretences, dlshonost assumptions, unwor
thy of common sense and real gentlehood.
Tho beauty ofgold Is, that It is gold; not
that it looks llko gold. Tho quiet satisfac
tion of wearing gold is, lhat it Is pure, last
ing, beautirul metal, and Just what it ap
pears. To wear falso gold Is lo wear a mls
nral,1n iilnchheek deeenlion. worthy only
of bagman and bagwomon, swindlers and
courtozans, and unbecoming tho quiet
honesty and frank sincerity or honest people.
Fourthly and lastly. Perfect urcsssuouiu
bo rich, but not exceptional. It should
nover try to catch tho eye, nut picaso mo
souso with o quiet, almost unconscious
charm. It is only tho mountebank and the
swindler who swagger In red and yellow.
It Is, or should bo, only tho Anonyma who
paints. Away, then, with all vulgar ex

Wllh ruff., and cuffs, and ferdlugales, and things ;
