Hotel*?One of the uoit remarkable fea ture* of our coantr j is its hotels. There ere hardly any two io the United States, frequent ed bj Americans, which are alike. In Europe, however, there are for the most part bet two classes of hotela?those for the entertainment of folks with pockets full of monej, and those for the entertainment of the olass who care fully stow awe y in their poekets the odd lamp of sugar left of the quantity regularly served with the cup of ooffee they haro paid for. Ihey are all alike there. That is, each one, in the habiie and appearance of its habitues and employees, and in what transpires under its roof, is precisely like eTery other me of its. olass Untrivelled Americans will realiie 1 his fact, on turrir.g over in their minds the habits and ccKtoms of houses of entertainment around them patronised exclusively by the foreign born, of which there are now more or less in every American city. New York; howerer, is really the city of hotels. Though its popu la ion is so much less than that of London, wa fancy that at all times more pi>rsons bleep nightly under hotel roofs in New York than ;n the mammoth trans-Atlantic metropolis j J here can hardly be less than 100,000 stran gers (non-residents cf the city) always in New i ork^ as nearly every body who goes away ir^ui home for business or pleasure takes New Vork in the way. In tLe St. Nicholas and Metropolitan fr ?ai iOOto 1,000 guests are always to be found, ^hanging, every man and woman of them, on an atorage as often as once a week. To an out sider like ourself. the sceoe therein preheat c i of noise and confusion and variety, which i- so bewildering to a stranger, is momentarily i uusing, next suggestive of reflections uj on the vastneae of our country's present and the 3*ill greater premise of itd future; next again cf the vanity of all things of this life? fur ? at is no leu displayed in the piteous de.

We can stand every thing in these immense caravansaries but their tables; not believing in the possibility of ?-coking well for half a hundred people in the 3:?me kitchen for ten successive days.

To our tas'e, the best ho'el in New York is the ?? Union Place Hotel," kept by John a:?d John H Wheeler?th? latter boiDg no othir than the member of Congress of that naat. ! It is of a class which is fait besoming popular with Amoricans who bare realised the toiid comforts of the first class hotels on the otler | side ot the Atlantic?a house to accommodate not over t*o hundred goes s, naif of whe m lave private tables, wherein money can pro cure any and every thing that good taste, re. tiuement and we 1th combined, may desire The ?' Clarendon1' is another such house, fre quented, however, principally by Knglisbmtc t? such establishments everything is as quiet it ail times as in the private residence of any gentleman in tbe country. They are eschewed by the noisy, boisterous, and the splurging, ss *eing wholly unsuited to their tastes and habits. Such tablea as are found there are to be enjoyed in no- other class of public houses in northern American cities; for tbe ?lass of people frequent them principally are New \ ork, not bent on mak>ng money, but on spending it Ihey think more of good eating an<f drinking than any others on this side of 'be Atlantic, and to achieve their patronage i: necessarily becomes the chief oare of the proprietors that their appointments for tbeir comfort shall be unexceptionable. The Union i*lace Hotel is, to our taste, the model Ameri. ? an house, i be effects of the energy and em phasis of character on the part of the father and son, which sent the latter, hardly mere than a youth in age, te the Congress of the 1 nited States, is visible in all the appointments and arrangements cf the eatablishment?sys tem, order and oxactltude being at hand, turn which way the guest may. When Jno. H. Wheeler was first eleoied to Congress many of the newspapers sneerei at t^e idea of placing in such a position, a verj young man. whose previous training had been behind the eounier of a fashionable h<,tel. He proved, however, to be a remarkably in dustrious and attentive member, and soon ac quired a knowledge of the details of the real duties required of him in his now position, su perior to that of most of his felloe members, as the records of the last session's traneact.on of hen* Jide business show One Jias but to quietly observe for an hour the multifarious requirements made on tho patience, thebnin, and the decision of character of a manager of a firdt clasd hotel in this country, te appreciate the fact, that to be successful in that oalling. one mu.t possess faculties and habits of busi ness fitting him to discharge weil, almost any line of duty to which a business man may be called in this country. The Ovsrland MaUTo the Pacific -A mis apprehension exists in the public mind on ;his subject, arising from Colonel tynton's letter, lately appearing in the newspapers. The route has merely been made a mail route. No direction has been given by Congress to estab lish service upon it It is the custom of the Department to advertise tat servioe on all new routes, and to let them. If in the judgment of the Postmaster General the lowest bid is not too high. That is, if it is net so high as to ex ceed the probable benefit te accrue to the pub lic interest from running the mails over the particular route. Our hope is that in this case it may turn out that parties will offer to perform the service at a rate whieh the Post master General will feel at liberty to pay; in asmuch aa we believe that a service upon that route will speedily result in settlementa-oi frontiermen every twenty or thirty miles along that great line of emigration, which will in turn leasee the eost ef iu protection one-half at lea*i A* Interesting Letter -We have before us ? ?"?*>ript ???? from General Washington, ? we believe has never yet been printed li *? full of interest at ;his time, because It Is tJ 10 * Caiholio ?to his Xxceilenoy Thomas Sun Lee, then Governor of Maryland Its purpose wa<* to aanounoe the surreoder of Cornwall**, and to notify Govesnor Lee that a portion of the prisoner! would bo sent within hia jurisdiction.

This is not so. It will bo some months before warrants issued under the new law will be in such condition as to oause tho General* Land Office to begin the extra labor which it is eventually to perform by and through the enactment of tho law referred to. The additional clerks acoorded to the Land Bureau, to enable its head to carry out the new bounty land law, are not to be appointed before the termination of this fiscal year, as they wore acoorded in making appropriations for the service of the next fiscal year, which begins on tho 1st of July next.

[From the New Yprk Fv m'?; P.wi, ??' )J Col Kinney and his Central American P1?es. The famous Co'.unel Kitney, of Texan and Central American renown, is among the gueits of the Metropolitan. Notwithstanding the re ports S3 confidently made that ha had aban doned tbe project of ooloniaing the Mosquito country, the Colonel still maintains the deter mination of following, during the present month, the parties in his interest who have already left our ports. According to his state* ment the story or the failure of the expedition arose from the fact tbat ha haa disconnected himself from the Central American Company, and now purposes to cany the enterprise throu h on hia own shoulders. At the conclusion of certain negotiations now pending, it is his design to take passage by a steamer from New York to the land of promise. He will first stop at San Juan, where the people, at the last accounts, were anxiously awaiting his presence The disturb ances in the neighboring state of Nicaragua are rather p'optioas for the arrival of Kinney and his pacifis riflemen. Diftractcd as the country is by tbe contest between the revolu tionary party under Csstillsn and the con servative property holders headed by Cbo morrofthe sword of the Colonel would prob ably turn the scale. In fret, we understand that Col William F Walker, the ex-President of Socora, d-3 gutted with his ill-success in foundingan in dependent government lor the lower C+lifor nians is already in the field there with one hunilrod and fifty men under the banner of Caatillan. This is proacunoed the true policy for an enterprising young filibuster "just com mencing b-isiness," for Castillan._ having no thing to lose aud everything to gain, will be sure, if successful, to confiscate tha possessions ot Chomorro andjdivi-ie them among bis adhe rents " Col Kinney, however, aaserta that his ob j-ctr are still peaoeable and entirely consistent with the doctrines laid down in Secretary March's letter to Marcoletta relative to the ex pedition His severance from the Central American Company, ho thinks, so far Irom damaging him, only puts him a better fooling for carrying out his designs. Certainly the great expeditionist tss both the prestige of sucoess and the qualities befitting the Romu lus of tbe prospective Central American re public Diplomatic Difticcltt at Hatti? Iepig sitt to the American Coescl.?It seems that Mr Knight, cur oommeroial agent at Port-au-Prince, got into a difficulty with one of tbe members of a commercial house in that place in this way : He was asked by the senior partner of the firm of Pouilh A Sons to sign an invoice, bu refused ta do so without the pay in advance This enraged the merchant, high words ensued, and Mr. Knight asserts that he waa struck by his opponent. The Emperor boulouque was appealed to. Mr Knight, choosing to make it a national affair, ai d he directed it to be aent to the tribunal, where Messrs. Pouilh were sentenced to imprisonment for one month and a fine of $25. The terms of the sentence were ren dered, not from oonvlction, but through fear ?.f the Government Mr Knight represents It appeared in the progress of the trial, that Mr. Knight owed Messrs. Pouilh A Co., for borrowed money, and hence, in their indignation at tha refusal of Mr Knight to sign their ship papers without pay in advance. The American merchants offered to inter cede for the release of the Messrs. Pouilh, but they insisted upon remaining in prison until the expiration of the sentence. Kaow Nothiso Know Nothing organizations aro said to exist in New York, aud are represented to be waging a fieice and uncompromising warfare against each other. That branch to which the epithet Hindoo is applied, and of which James W. Barker is the high priest, is said to be rapidly de creasing in numbers, in consequence of the inroad made upon it by the other branch, known as the Allen which claims to be the original, rejecting the practice of the Hindoos in making separate nominations, and insisting upon its adherents voting for them, and which may, we presume, be re garded as a sort of terd* r to the Seward in. terests of the State. The fcui is waxing very warm, and tbe indications are ibey are about re enacting the gamo of the Hard and Soft Shells of the so called Democracy. The Apotheosis or Rascality ?A New Yor& paper says: "Last week, a worthy and respected citisen, named Robert Kermit, died here, and was followed to the grave by a small number of ouiet friends A few days before, a prise fignter, win had been killed in a drunken brawl, and whose name had constant, ly been coupled with tales of Tiolenoe, blood shed, and brutality, was buried with pomp, eclat, and noise, five thousand persons follow ing him to his resting place.
