We hear oi but lew eases in private practice. Cases have occurred among some of the hands employed on board th<* t- ii|? and steamboat* on the river,and it is ? singular tact that the fever usually prevails to agreater extent on board the shipping than anywhere else. The Charleston paper has the following remarks: The Savannah Republic an learns that the yellow fever i-1 pr< vailing at Key West.

We cannot judge what proportion his bears to the deaths in the whole city, but it is not late enough in the season lor the disease to have required itsfull force,r.nd there is little probability of their escaping the epidemic. Far'her north than this city, this pestilence has been convryed by thf culpable conduct of Dr. Van llovenburg, the health officer, on which we com. iiiented a Hay or two ago. Mr. 11. M. Romeyn, of Kingston, has written the following letu r to this city on this subject ? Kingston, N Y., Aug 25, 1^43.

From the columns ot a contemporary we learn that in 1822, the yellow fever broke out here on the 19th ol August, and that previous to it, it broke out one year in September, and another in October. There is then ample time tor it j tu visit us, and make this great city one vastcharnel house. What, then, is to be done 1 Shall Dr Van Hovenburg be allowed to peril the lives of our oitizens 1 This is a (piestion that should come home to evi ryone, lor each may consider that he maybe the next victim.

We heartily concur in the views expre sed by the writer, and believe that we will serve nu. hi/minis them itllhlicilv heie. Il vnn I lidvi' any love lor the stage, we netdn'l ask you to rend the article ; and our Rood friends ol '"the profession" will find in it that which will amply repay a thoughtful perusal. Here it is Th* mob, including in the term the great and the little vulgar, will ever be attracted to places o! amusement to gratify one leeling chit-fly? wonder. Whethera Ketnble awe and dazzle in Coriolanus, a Macrrady affright the heart in Werner, or a Ravel and his umbrella be whirled about the stage by an imaginary wind, the mob goes to stare and t? ad> mire. The educated are impelled by far dittereni motives; and the mob?great and little?has been learning, whilst refinement has increased. Nu profession requires so great a variety ol qualili cations in order to perfection as that ol the actor. Expression, voice, figure, feeling, maimer, and imitative powers are the attributes generally supposed to be essential to him, and they certainly embrace r< iiuisiu-s which centre only in lew; bui it is seldom remembered tliat more is necessary for the completion ol the consummate actor, and uufortuimtely our actors are those who have mosi forgot ten the necessity. Painter and sculptor tire aware that u?eliiI, disciplining, and invigorating as are the galleries where hang the works of their mighty predecessors, they must study life and nature with their ?.? I Tl.o I.. theatie, and very pro|>erly, but then lie limits Ins studies to its teaching. He knttws by rote the points of Kemble, of Kenn, of Macready; but the idea ot gra-pins the whole which they have grasped, of tracing ihe substantial conception of character that ihey have formed, or of examining how they may have shaped it so as to suit their respective strength, or how their own idiosyncracies mav have operated on tli^ir view ol the character, much let-s ol contrasting their execution with tde author's intent, and, again, of comparing actor and author with the known laws of human nature, never enters his iliought?. Hut putting out of the question that elaborate study ot Ins art into which it may be argued that the great histrion alone will enter, let the pluv goer ask liimself what extent of accomplishment lie has observed in the players ot the day.? Who hre the Hamlets that can handle the toil with t'.i- ? t*e, grace, and command ot his weapon that the gentleman?ttie "homo ail uncrucm Jaclut"? even now that the sword ih di.-usetJ, may be presumed to possess? Wkoarethe Dukes Aranza that cau dance except utter the lashion of tailors or ot dancing masters! Oh! bu', may be put the rejoinder juestifMi, do you go to see the Hamlet lence, >r the Aranza dance, or Macbeth cut six with i Highland broadsword"? Does your demand that ac:or> should study the principles of their art stop at tiere outside and filhgree? Not a whit. There Have been Juliets ot sixty, Komeos of upwards of eventy, who, "if eld is to ye in aught believed," lave hurried, the spectator at once into the illusion it the scene, and made him forget the actual in the deal; and we have ourselves seen a Hamlet, and in Aranza, and a Macbeth, who may have fenced, ud danced, and loupht to perfection, and who we lelieve did so, but ol whose fencing, dancing, or righting no man with a head on his shoulders would :hink tor a moment, and with whom the things were ol no consequence. Bui lesser actors, or those who have the desire and hope to excel, cannot and lught not to afford to throw away an advantnge. It is very true that " Before great merit all objections fly? Pritcharil's g' nttel, and Uarrick sn feet high j" but it is also true that though Mrs. Pritchard could rnact the Indy without being the beau ideal of the drawing room, and Garrick the hero without being heroic in form or stature, and the audience be msen *ible to the deficiencies of either, they would not be overlooked in persons of meaner talent, and that could either have acquired on the emergency, he one the polish, the other the command, in which aotli were respective y wanting, they would have been the more admirable fur it. When a great actor occupies the stage, he takes possession ol us at his will. But. independently of :he combination of qualities whicn we have stated o be universally acknowledged to be essential tothe formation of the perfect actor, and ot the accomilifhments which are at the least desidtrata towards his end, there are other elements not less important, ind now almost, it not altogether, neglected. An ictor may be a great oerlormer, yet have many and glaring faults; and it is to be doubted whether the ime has not arrived at which ac'ors ot the kind, who can hurry you away by particular bursts of paslion or of pa'hos, but are grossly wanting in the eleTients to which we allude, will prove less and less ittractive to the refined classes ol the community, wnaiever may De me cape with the million. An educated person will hardly be tempted to frequent the theatre, to make it his habitual and favorite resort of amusement, as of yore, uuless he receive mental pleasure therefrom. The pleasure derivable from acting by such a |>erson by no means consists in his being made the rec pient of a certain number of electric shockSupposing the play to be familiar to him, he looks to the actor to give to its poetry a Iresh charm by the music of his recitation, to suggest to him new rains of thought, and call forth new phases c.f character, by nice inflections of voice nnd a difcruninative accentuation of the feelings blended in the part. The strong passions, the leadng impulses of any given creation of the dramatic )oet, and its general conformity with the truth of lature, are as obvious to the well-informed reader n the closet as they can possibly be made sensible o him on the stage. Hut the outlines he may trace le requires the actor to fill up The form exists in lis own mind?the coloring must be the actor's; ind, thouuh we can expect from the accomplished tlayer alone, the light,shade, and "clear-obscure" which result from a keen perception of and relish for he pnetry ol his author, yet we have a right to denand from every player who appears on the boards if our great national theatres, a smooth and flowing felivery. We ask?who hears there, or at any theitre, anything of the kind? The art of speaking irus the first object to which he young actor's attention was directed. It is now ill bu: lost. Our players contrive to break down ven Shakspeare's lyrical verse, pla-tic, pliant, hariiouious, and rhythmical as it is, into prose. They trind rich, palpable music on a squeaking, stopping, (TffcniriR nuruy-guray?ana congratulate eacn ither on having introduced a natural manner of peaking. Now, we submit that elocution is part ind parcel ol the actor's art,and that delivering verse n snch an ab upt, disjointed manner that it becomes indistinguishable from the commonest pros-', is not locution. Graceful recitation,which ought to constiute on* of the ch&rma of the stage, is to be attained ty even the mediocre actor,and yet is univer-ally ne;'ected by the players ot the day. Thus one source if plennure derivaMe from the theatre is entirely cut oft". And we may observe that the urand aim of ihe players of old was to please ; that tf the modern actors seems to be startle and astonish. And what is the education our players give themselves 1 Wuh rare exceptions, not one, man or woman, can go throiuh a put without betraying gross ignorance?ignorance ?f ihe import ol the text they deliver, ol the modeaof the age in wh'ch the play is taid, and of t he very conventionalities of the day Mow few are there who di-play i^ie impress of classic studies or ot poiite letters ?and education imparts a reiiueiuent easily diecernable?or who even seem to possets the attainments now common to the middling class ot s ciety. If an Italian phrase or sentence of French occurs in the dialogue of their part, they are at a lots We have heard one word pronounced differently by every actor and actress in the same play, and not once rightly. These thingmay appear exceedingly trivial; but we apprehend that they have had their effect. The better-inlormed have been led to desert the theatre, because they could derive no satisfaction from receiving the classical and the romantic at the hands ot persons who had no knowledge ot ihe one or feeling tor the other; and the well-bred would hardly resort to it often to see a caricature ot manners, instead of a portrait. Our actors have stuck to the stage, totrapdoors, spaiitiles, and tinsel. They have clung to a miserable imitation, and wonder that scholars do not flock to t>e conducted by them to the heights of poetry, or courtiers to view themselves in the mirror they hold up. "The words of truth and soberness." A good deal o! severity there is indeed, but the truth, hon esty, and good motives o! the writer are not to be ]i|estioned. The visit ofMacready to Olid country will, we are persuaded, introduce a new < ra in the history "f the drama in this country. His agency in " purging it to a sound and vigorous health," may be comparatively slow in its operations, but it will be certain ? The public theatrical taste has been completely vitiated here. Ranting and furious gesticulation, and uiiM'l have almost altogether drawn the educated and finished actor ott the stage. Hut Macready will er?? t another Mandard of dramatic excellence, and the public will very boon learn to appreciate it.

The trial of Curler, which U now in program in the Warren County Oyer and Terminer, N. J , i? one of a most singular character. A more atrocious murder bai ramly been committed, and benefit* details are invested with peculiar interest. The first witnefi called, Stacy Bcwlby, of Lebaaon. Huntetdou Co., within a mile of Changewatei. thus describes the discovery of the murder: ? 1 was going along the road from Changewstrr to Tort Colden, hall an hour alter sunrise on Tutsday, 'Jd oi May, was passing by the sinkhole near Parke's louse and hw something in it likn a man; first thought it a scarecrow tiom the Held; looking further it seemed like a man; thought he had fallen in the night; then seeing the rails and blood, was satisfied he wu murdered; one large rail on the back ot his bead, which was in the inu.l. s< vera I other rails or stakes in the hole; could only see the hackot his hand uncovered, and thought it was a black man; couldn't msk? out who it was: went to Castncr's house to give the alarm; the gate was o|wn anil ! knocked at the lever I itchen cellar door under the main house, [ but could get no answer; then wi ht up to the stoop of the kitchen part ol the home and knocked; no tutwir; door wan closi d;thoug!)t all were aileep, ami went to the mill and told James IVtty and Peter Vanatta I had found a man 1 murdered in the sink hole; asked them to go to the other i mill for the men; Peter went; a number came; ai soon as we reached the hole one or two laid it was Castner; teld them 1 had been to the bouse and it was a 1 silent there; they concluded all'were murdered,and proposed to go and ; see; obout a do7.en went to the kitchen end and went in; there was no fastening to the door except a latch; James IIaxlet and Wm. It. Trail were the first who went in; 1 was iust behind them; Mr. Franks was in company; we found Mrs. Castner and the child murdered, on the lied; we then went up stairs and found Jesse Force, the boy, in a gore of blood leaning off the edge of the bed on his elbow, the blood dropping on the II ior; thence they went in I'aike's room, and found him likewise dead in hil bed ; after that we went toward the sink hole, and traced the blonk and tracks where there had been a struggle in the road and h" ha 1 been dragged 18 or 10 pace* from beyond the hole from the house towards Port Golden ; wo saw a stick that had been broken oil in the fence between the place of the struggle and the hole. Oastner's hat stood over the fence very near where the stake had been broken oft ; there is a bank near the fcnce ; on the north e<'g? of the sink hole we found blood, where he seemed to nave been diaKged in ; Castncr lay on his face about northeast and south-west, head north east ; didn't observe any other bteod near the sink hole; the rails ware took out and I saw that the two large mils had been used, blood and hair ou them both ; didn't examine the poles ; north of the hole where he had been dragged the blood stood in small puddle*. It had rained the hunday evening previous so that the ground was wet and the tracks were frfshjwhere lie had neen dragged ; not a great many tracks where the struggle wns, but several as if there had been a considerable scuffle j didn't observe the size of the tracks. Ueoruk 1* ramus, another witness, in the course of his examination thus deposed. I reside 4 or S'Xt yards from Parke's house by the road; in sight; heard of the murder at 6 o'clock Tuesday morning, from James Petty; 1 staited toward the sink hole, und got to the bridge, and asked whether any Coroner resided near; they answered no; I then directed George Castner to go for Wm. R. I'rall, Ekj., and John Vanderbilt, to go for Jacab Arndt, Esn , and for ftobert Vanatta.constable; went to the sink hole w mi outers, ann was satuQi-d it was Castner, I'rem his dress; he was lying as bWore described; I was then directed to a sprinkling of blood 40 or 60 feet north of the hole toward Port Colden, and some slight impressions of foo'steps around the blood, as if n scuffle might have taken placc, and a track where the body had been dragged along from where the blood was down to the hole; then askeii if Cas'ner's family were apprised of it; Bowlhy replied as he has sworn; then 1 proposed that a part remain at the hole, and I went down With five or six ?thers to the house; wo went into the front door, but could hear no one Up; then the gate was shut; went to the kitchen door, myself, Wni. R. Prall, and John Hazlitt; wepu'hed the door open and all entered together, and there saw Castner's wife and the child dead on the bed, partially covereJ; the upper part of the coverlid drawn forward over the bodies, and a pillow laying on their heads; Mrs. C.'s legs were hanging over the foot of the bej, she lying on her stomach; the child was covered entirely with the coverlid and the pillow together; Mrs. C. had stockings on; then we went up stairs and found Jesse Force, the boy, in the chamber over the kitchen, leaning with his head on his hand over the side of the bed and the blood dronpingout of his forehead; 1 asked him whether he was badly hurt; he said yes; Hazlitt went for the doctor, we then proceeded to the next room, and found Mr Parke laying on his back perfectly straight, bed clothes up to his chin and a pillow over his face; | then asked where the two sons of Castner and Saml. Parke could be; Mrs Frank stated that she thought the lioys slept in a little room adjoining the room where we first entered; we went down and found them there asleep in u trundle bed; I asked the eldest where his aunt Bally slept; he said, next unelv Parka's room, but that she was not at home, she had gone to.Mr. HuUiger's the night previous; 1 went and told her what had happened; when we c?me down stairs some person took hold of Parke's desic near the door and said it was open; noticed the wooden bar of the kitchen door which stood inside, 2} inches wide and one inch thick. Dr Rohfat McCi.knahah, n practicing physician residing at N'uw Hampton, tbui deposed? 1 was at borne on Tuesday morning when the news of tho murder arrived; heard of it (rom John Hazlitt about 6J A. M.; went immediately up to Changewater with Hazlitt and Cyrus Arndt, about two miles to Park's house; there were some fifteen people there; I was called to seethe boy; went in to the bed where Mrs. C. and child were lying; I took the pi'low from their laces and saw that life was extinct; my at. tention was then directed to the boy tip stain; after exa. mining him 1 passed through the adjoining room into the one where Parke lay; I directed the hoy to be brought down staijs, and dressed his wounds; he had four wounds on his head, none elsewhere; n wound ou the right and another on the left of the medium line; twn also iu the forehead, coming together and lorming the letter V; the one on the right side of the head was cut to the bone, three inches long; a small bit ol the skull was chipped out; the one on the left was similar, hut not quite so lonethose in the forehead were an inch in length; the skull was fractured at the fronlit situs-, the wound was a clean cut, a small portion of the external table of the skull was depressed; the boy had his si-nses; ] made no observations on the wounds of Mrs. C.; saw one on the right temple; saw several wounds on Mr. Tarke; one in the temple similar to the one made upon Mrs. C., and with a similar instrument; the boy's wounds appeared to be madewith a dif ferent instrument; some of Parke's wounds might be tnat'e by the ome instrnmeut which made the boy'*; the old man's skull was fractured so that it protruded abov? his ear; I supposed there would have been a post mortem examination, nr I should have paid moro particular attention; 1 went to the sink hole belore Castner was taken out; didn't see him taken out, but saw the liody at the house before and after he was laid nut; recollect three wounds, one in his cheek about the centre, a cut made as it appeal} ed with the same instrument which made the wound in thetemples of Mrs. C. and Parke, another wa^ upon the cheek lone, ma'eby ablunter instrument, which passe) under the orbit of the eye about four inches, not a clean incision; the wound passed upward and backward, and reached into the brain; I passed a small pair of pocket scissors into the wound on the cheek bone; 'the third wm in the temple one inch in length, and appeared to have been done by the same instrument which caused that ot? the lower part of the cheek; I did not notice any external wounds; the wound on centreof the cheek was not a mortal wound; that on the cheek hone I should think would he mortal?that in the temple also. That on the hack of the hi ad, I should think would not be immediately mortal though it might have born; I formed no opinion oi the time they had been dead. I noticed the dark appearance of Mr?. C.'s throat?her torgtie was partially protruded beyond h?r teeth but not beyond her lips. I thought the wounds were made by some instrument with a handle with which some force might be used. My observation of them was very superficial indeed, and I wiah to be nndestood so,as my attention was not at all directed to them. Mrs. C.'s countenance presented a livid appearance?her lips were awollen, and it appeared as though she night have been caught by the throat and choked. Attended the boy while he lay at Franks?was often a?ked if he would be able to tell anything about it; don't think that prisoner pressed or repeated the question more particular j !y than any one else ?he may have spoken to me about it more than once. I saw him onco I recollect after that at I New Hampton at David Parke's on a Sunday. Then I think he asked me in the presence of others, whether the boy knew anything about it, or whethe* he was asleep? did not call m<- aside. 1 think Samuel J.

I told him I didn't think ( it was possible that a man doing the business tbat he did | couldn't recollect where he received his money; he ought to recollect twelve months all he received and paid out: ' then he said, after waiting a lew moments, ' I'll now tell > you God's truth about it?an J continue.!, that "he expected every day last year to be. tore up, he didn't know when it might come, and he had been saving his money ] since he went to N. York in the fall or winter, that he might have something lor a stormy day, that he might live on until he could get at something to make a living." I I then said, friend Carter, ] am afraid you are somewhat ? concerned in this business tome way, and for God's sake, if you had any hand in this murder Jet mo know it, for ( you'll want the aid of all your friends, and more too, to get you out of it, and if 1 can do anythlngconscientiously lor you, I'll do it. His answer was, "I'd rather be found guilty than any man should swrar false for me." I answered, "you must recollect I didn't say I would do anything which I couldn't do conscientiously." He then paid that John Strader had called upon him about the 1st 1of April, and wanted him to give his note for security for a debt which he owed him; that he wanted to give his brother William as security; and be said that he intended to give William a bill of sale on his goods. 1 told him he would Uave to get somelawyer to draw his papers for him and then it would leak out that he had done so. He 1 said no, he had an old bill of sale that he had taken for a cow from Wm. L Smith that he would copy from. I then asked him how much money he had sawd fr?m his 1 N-York trip. He said "froiu ?6 to ( 0 dollars." I then said,'how can it be possible you would tell me you had no money when you bad this in your picket? I atked J "where he kept this money, whether in his house, and if , his wife knew anything about il7"' "No," said he,11 keen it here," drawing irom his pocket a small pocket 1 book, and slapping his hand on it. I asked,"if it was pos. ] sible he could be such a scoundrel as to come to me to be . security on a judgment, and let him have money when he had it in his pocket, when he knew 1 would have to pay 1 the judgment if I was able, and he went down?" He answered, "it is so." 1 then said I wanted him to go to Wathington and give his evidence to Mr. Morris and Sjuire Crevelling. He said he did not want to do it, to give a public examination and show what a scoundrel or rogue ho was. I told him ho could have a private examination if he wished it, I knew. He wanted to know what 1 hud to do with it, that I could let him have a private examination. I told him 1 would guarantee that Mr. Morris would give him a private examination if he wished it, and that was all I had to do with it. Hetheniaidhe would go, and he went with me. Ffliniv.thk Fourth Dat.?Thetiial progresses slowly. The examination of the prisoner before the magistrates was read in evidence this afternoon. It is very long and much of it irrelevant. Carter states there that the first he heard of the murder was on Tuesday morning, the sun more than two hours high?that he whs ploughing when reter \v. I'arlte came and told nim. faike sum he did not believe it, and Carter said be did not; but be unhitched hia horses and they each got on one and rode , over moderately till they got to Mr. Arndl's, when Mrs. A told them that taev were all murdered at Mr. Parke's They then hurried on. Mr. Caugle, who was examined this afternoon and toll [ a very straight story, swore that on Tuesday morning, a hair hour alter sunrise, Carter gave him a letter, to taKe to Easton, which it will he proved hereafter contained an apology for not meeting Sqnite IIowcll on account of the murder! This is certainly a strong circumstance if unexplained. , City Intelligence. Charhe of Fai.>f. Pretence*?On Friday mvrning last Chailea H. Schneider, of No. 19 south William street, merchant, appeared belore the presiding Magistrate, at the Lower Police Office, and made oath that in the month ot May last he received fr?m his Correspondent at Havre, Jan Van Drunen, by the ship "Onedia," Funck^captain, three packages of plants marked "W.

The charges on consignees' lien on them beirg f20,04 Mr. Prince was duly informed of the arrival of the said three packages, and a bill of particulars furnished, in which was included n charge ol >9.23, for a packag? previously received by Princefrom the Custom House officer through mistake, from on board the ship Albany, and which Prince had either neglected or refused to provide for. The bill of charge* thus amounted to $29,27; and it was made conditional that tho full amount should be paid, or the packages now at hand would he retained as security. Trince refused the terms, and engaged the services of Robert P. Newby, Custom Hou*e keeper, re siding at No. 16Grand street, to whom he exhibited thu bill of pirticulars, stating -t the same Umethat Schnei der had instructed him (Prince) to engage a broker to pass them regularly through?that the packages were forwarded in Sceneider's name, as the peculiar state of his (['rince*') affairs, he did not wish to lisk thtm in hisown name. On these representations, and without a Bill of Lading or invoice, Mr. Newby made the ri quired entries in the name of C. H. Scenelder, at the Custom House,and obtained the following permits:?

Honorari.t DisciiARGFt).?In the Police Iteport* of last Thursday, we published the arrestol Stanley De L.

Moore?who has every appearance ol a person suffering under aberration ol mind, superinduced by hard and centinued drinking ?when brought up belore the Magistrate, fell on his knees and (ntreated the pardon ol God and the law, for having made such an oath, attribu ting his error, very properly, to the bewilderment ot his brain. Mr. I)h L. Montange wns honorably discharged liom bail,or limn any further trouble, and this reparation is due that gentleman from the press which published his arrest.

Allow me through the columns of your valuable ournal, to give you same account of thi-s " loveliest villuge of the plain " It is situate within five miles of the proposed termination of the Long Island railroad?admirably located for fishing and owling, being within a mile of Long Island Sound, upon the north, and the great Peconic bay on the south. This place is destined at no distant day to rival far famed Rockaway. It has all its advantages, while its climate is unsurpassed for salubrity by any in the country. Scores from your city, who hive learned to appreciate its beauties, annually visit us, to enjoy its delightlui retreats and beautilul promenades. We celebrated yesterday our 4ih annual pic nic, orclam bake, which passed oil in good'style, being conducted purely on temperance principles ? We arrived between 12 and 1 o'clock at the appointed place, which is, by the way, one ol our most delightful groves,where were assembled about 150 per?ons, some ot whom were engaged in roasting the clams, some were {listening to the music, miu oineis were, wnai 111 me country iscailea gossipping. About three o'clock the company all sat down to a table loaded with all the delicacies of the season, one of which I need not say was the above-mentioned clamB Immediately after our repast a dance was proposed. W? accordingly arranged a temporary floor, and the band having alreudy struck up some favorite cotilon tunes he whole party (the younger portion of ii) were s on ir pping tt on the "light hntastic foe " And here were assembled in one blaze of beau y, some of the loveliest beings 1 have even seen, unheralded and unknown beyond the precincts of their native village. How true that Full many a flower is horn to blush unseen And waste its sweetness on the desert air. Conspicuous among the belles on this occasion.

Miss J. M C. who did not take part in the dance;s, is a. beautiful girl, and the Misses G?n C?r from your city also, together with others, whom at some future period I hope to notice.

The advantages for a camp meeting, which is got U|# (ICIC uiiuc a jfcai) uy uiv. mcmuuiai, tau iuc ucai, is one would say in common parlance. The negroes j nave followed in the footsteps of their illustrious brethren, the whites, and have just begun to get up steam, having been "a going if," since Tuesday.? We visited the " ground," which is a level spot in the forest, distant a mile Irom town. To one who lias never visited a camp meeting, the effect is curious, especially at night. The boughs surrounding : [he preachers'stand in a circuit of half a mile, are i fiuog with lamps, which flickcr and flare in strange : contrast with the surrounding darkness. The low itsul hum as they twang'd out the hymn, reminded ine ot the infernal orgies of th'\Pandemonium, e.-pe21 ally, as they brought in three stropping wenches ind laid them on the straw devoted to the converts; lere they set up a yelling and bawling,slapping their liandaand rolling about, which fairly made "night Hideous."

Flirtation*?Old Bachelors and Ancient Spinsters?Cupid'* High.Court of Chancery ami Legal Love Making. Dear Bennett Siratoga is still the same gay, delightful resort of i lvalidi, bachelors, old maids, brokers, bankers and broken down financiers of ail descriptions, ages and genders. New York city sends her full complement ol the foregoing classes: besides, her bench and bar are ably represented here. Among others, we have the amiable, agreeable and gentlemanly Judge B. ol the District Court, and his no les.* amiable son. The Judge is a very agreeable companion, and one who is accustomed losee him sternly wielding the sword of justice, will teel very much surprised on a nearer acquaintance, to find that the Judge possesses a great flow of agreeable nonsense, or that peculiar kind of chit chat, which arrests the attention of widows and young ladies over five and twenty. By the bye, is the Judge a widower 1 It not, I think there are several ladies here who woukk wish he was. Mr. O'C. of your city is here?a very* good lawver and a very old bachelor, and until he shakes off pome of his awkwardness, he will have to remain in single blessedness; a just judgment on all clumsy ("Hows. He mukes love in all legal form, and has his pleadings so exact, that it is impossible for a lady to demur to them, and hence he never can raise an argument with them. It is confined to plea and rejoinder. It never once enters liiet head that a lady can talk most eloquently, and reason most forcibly when she is on the wrong side. Several old maids of my acquaintance have noticed his flirtations with Mi? B. of Philadelphia, and if their whispers can be credited, he is going to file a bill in cupid's high court of chancery, bv virtue of which he laysclaim to all the estate, right, title, and interest, claim and demand whatsoever, of in and to her heart, and every part and parcel thereof, with the appurtenances. Miss B. is a charming singer, and her strains may possibly reach his heart, his law and logic to the contrary notwithstanding. What decision ihe little winged chancellor will give on hia petition, is vet a mystery ; but the old mains, who are my inform*; nts, throw out some evil bodings against his suit, from a *ery trifling circumstance. Last evening she playeu1 sang at the Pavilion, arid in retiring from the pi.* no? ',e oflered his arm to the fair songstress in so awkw.Hrd a manner, that one of theold maids to whom Iwh.1' whispering something very sweet, vowed, if he w?.'u'd ?"^.r his arm to her in that manner, she would pu c" him over a chair. A Airs. S. from New York, w 10> be an inveterate matchmaker, has as one ol my informants told me taken him in hand, and m^y Pr?bably carry him through. Bitrnum of the Pavilion is in full blast, and ha.? his house crowded, as every good fellow like him stiouiu nave, music ana dancing close each day, which is but one round of amus.ment and pleasure; every thing is done for the comfort of his guests, and all seem delighted with him and with each other. There are several beautiful young ladies here now, one in particular, dre*sed in black, whose graceful form and animated movements, takeseverv one's attention. I have looked particularly through all the hotels, and 1 find nothing to compare wiili tier, so I can fearlessly pronounce her the belle of the Springs, and I might add the belle ?f the season. When she makes her appearance, all the younj; men begin to cast sheep's eyes at her, and my par ticular Iriends, the old maids, really look daggers at her. 1 am afraid to look at her when they are present, lest they might suppose she was going to draw oft my attention f rom them, a circumstance I by no means wish, for it is only through them that 1 can have the earliest intelligence of ail the scandal. The rnojt remarkable thing about the Pavilion, is the length of the gentlemen's noses, some of them being of a prodigious length; when one t .kes a s de view of them at table, they look like so niary breakwaters to a bridge. The Union is noted for i s red noses. To stand on the opposite side ol the s r et in the morning, and see them file oft to the S,?nng. one would suppose that each gentleman thdtemtig-d from the hoielj had a flaring torch stuck ou to h a face.
