All wclL Nothing of special interest has transpired so far, aside 1 from the usual dull monotony of a eoa voyage on board a Man-of-war. The highlands of 8t. Antonio were first seen yesterday at one o'clock, and at eight the Niagara dropped anchor la this harbor, which is callod l'orto Grande, one of the ost barren, rocky, desolate placcs to be found upon God's footstool. Chsgres and Greytown are perfcct paradises compared with It. This island, or rather pile of rocks, belongs to Portugal, and forms one of tbs | group of the nurthweatern cluster of the Oape de Verdes, j inhabited only by " black republicans" and a few For The Niagara bu made* very good run, considering tkat the voyage has been made moat of the way by steam lone, against bead winds. Itos Sfth day oat the propeller was elevated. Daring I that mgbt and part of the next day she made from twelve to thirteen knots, giving farther proof of her extraordinary sailing qualities. The propeller has been hoisted and let down foir times since leaving Sandy Hook. On the evening of the 6th, when in latitude thirty ssven degrees, passed spars, masts, Ac., of a wrecked vessel. Basic night, weather dark and rainy, passed a ship, which the Niagara came Dear running Into. Several vessels were signalised on the voyage, on (he 10th a brig was seen to windward, with all Mils set, supposed to bs a slaver bound for Africa. On the 14th, latitude 23, longitude 30, going ten knots, spoke a large French rhip bound to New Orleans and West Indies. The Japanese are in a perfect state of "salubrity," every one, from and including the Kamks, down to the oooks and barbers. They are not the same people they were when In the Called (Hates, where they were cooped, caged and penned up like to many animals. On board the Niagara not a day baa pasted that they have not been on deck, mixing up with the officers and others aa freely as if only ordinary passengers. It is interesting to see bow closely they apply themselves to learning the English language. Tbry hare quite a library of books of dinertnt kinds?Dutch, English and other dictionaries. There are several others besides the Interpreters who speak considerable feglisb. "Tommy'' takes lessens dally in'Englah of our excellent and worthy chaplain, Rev. Mr. Stewart. " Tommy" sends a letter to Mr. Bennett, in which be speaks of his visit to the United States In the most affectionate terms. Be speaks particularly of Warren and Lewis Inland, Captains Pupont, Porter and l<ee, and of aeveral thing* which be saw. In regard to the ladies Tummy" la aomewhat exercised in mind. He spoke of three " very beaotlful ladies, 0! very beauttful," from wb"?n be had received letters (calling them by name), b it os reCection he erased their name*, because. be said, tt would make the others "ftel jealousy," Bo mucb for the Japs. The accommodations provided for the Embassy are certainly ufu.o the most liberal and magnificent scaie. Everything, so far, has gone along smoothly, but dally and tsdionely. The glorious Fourth was celebrated by a dinner In the ward room, giren by the officers of the mess The life and soul of the ship are Colonel Ripley and I.ieat. Ben ry A.

With a favorable breeze we took our departure, and before tbe evening (bade* prevailed we bad lost tight of iand. During our progress down the bay tbe Japanese Ambassador* never came cn deck. Tateish Onejiero, known in the United State* a* "Tommy," is indeed a bright and clever lad, and has aready acquired a more perfect knowledge of the English language than the imperia interpreter himself. Active, playful, inno cent and witty, the young neophite is the life of the ahip. The wish nearest to bis beast is to be educated at Annapolis, and to become amidabipman. Deluded youth, he only thinks of America ai it was when he was there, the idol ef the moment, caressed and tattered by a; little does he suppose that ere the sun Cad sunk beneath the western hills, on the evening of hi i departure, mr name and fame were forgotten. His instinct; are all affectionate, and he remembers with gratitu-lo all the kindness shewn him, and has devoted a large portion of his leisure time during the voyage in writing amatory epistles to tbe numerous ladies who ftvored him with their smiles, and, as we have seen eeveral of these confidential letters, we assert tbe Tact boldly, but shall reserve the names. Tate lib takes dally lessons In English from our estimable chaplain, and from him we learn that the lad is uncommonly clever. Among tbe Japanese officers there are some intelligent and refined men; but the majority are uninteresting, If not repulsive. Tbe doctors have been seasick the who)* voyage, a clrcua>uo?-, perhaps, attributable to the fact of their placing too Implicit a reliance on the efficacy of ?beir drug-, for, unlike the profession elsewhere, they practise what they preach. Oar doctors have, as yet, been unable to have any oonflare&ce with them, although our surgeon, through tbe Interpreter, has frequently solicited one. Those shaven sons of Esculaplus certainly betray, In their outward man, no remarkable evidence of minute acquaintance with physiology, pathology or therapeutics, and we are not folly prepared to say whether, for the sake of their countrymen, this is not, indeed, a blissful ignorance. Among so many conflicting opinions as prevail amuoj the European and American practitioners, where only one can be right, the chances against making the correct selection are truly fearful. Like their neighbors, the Chinamen, for every case of sickness in the families in which they practise, so much Is deducted from the annual stl- i pend allowed for keeping them well. By the orders of their government, tbe Japmese are prohibited from visiting foreign countries; bnt on tbe ; ground of preservation of their health, they may possibly i go ashore for a walk. Tateish Onejiero will probably run I the mall by assuming the ditfuisa of an American mitt, which be purchased at a tailjring establishment In New Tork?.be golden colore* Cupid retaining, la all lti intensity, tbe tame fondneaa for tbe sex which he brought from Nlphon. While writing the young rascal is pocrtng over our (boulder, and, baying recognized hia name, la anxious to know to whom we are writing. The Niagara, the triumph of marine architecture, baa not, thus far this oyage, done credit to her great reputation, owing perhaps to her great draft of water; but when she becomes lighter by the consumption of h?r coal, water and pro visions, she may redeem her former renown. Her machinery has worked admirably; her dally consumption of coal has been thirty-eight tons; tbe revolutions of her pro pellcr thirty five, and her*spred under wind and steam about eight knots. Kor one hour she k*g*d thirteen knots. The weaker baa been delightful, and the prevailing w lad fklr and of moderate force. She has occupied tbe same time In making tbe voyage as the steamers Mystic and Sumpter, now on the African station, although we have sailed a greater distance in search of lb" trade winds, which we did not find. Her battery Is grand and luipuaing, and when the crew shall have bern sufficiently drilled, she will he to any enemy far more terrible than an army with banners. Her accommodations outside of the cabins, however, arc not e^ual to her vast dimensions; tbe berths her mtn badly, and la sadly deficient In laddesn and hatchways. Tbe porous nature of tbe wool of which her decks art constructed will always make her a damp and unc?mfortable ship. Tbe cast s of rheumatism and pulmonary disease which appear on tbe slsk list also | indicate that she may prove a moat unhealthy one, par ticnlarly ahould she remain long In the sickly waters of , China and tbe East Iodles. At present, with few exceptions, the health of the omccrs ana erf w is goon, ani me Japanese, generally, are u ftt. h*pp> ud contented at clams it tal^h water.

They could then judfe fcr tfccrct ia to its present and prospectivo condition. But no Lb at is changed. Its novelty baa worn oQ.

But few of cur citizens I 'rrm actual inspection ?bat the Park loo lea l,ke ju present. Therefore it Is all the more necessary tht ihould inform them. The following report from 001 -ial reporter will probably suggest the true rei nhy the Central Park baa coaacd to be tho attractive; It waa a year ago. Franklin, in one of bis admirable essays, keenly rises boae who pay too dearly for their wh sties what would ho have said in regard to thoso wbo, paying most dearly, Dad themselves pneeeeeora < whistle at all 7 New York paid moet lavishly fo Japanese whit-tie: our Aldermanic band blew upon It melodiously, refreshing themaelves at our ei^ns' tween the tunes, and all New York dances at the greal ted can afford to be laughed at now when the bills cot rhc Central i'ark whistle, howeTer, though dearly bu will not play. In other words, after three ; labor and the expenditure of millions of lars," New York is almost as parkless now aa For all practical purposes the Central Park ia at pr use leas, and there seems to be not the slightest p btllty that It will anawer the real purpose for which Yorkers need a park, for years to come. IncompleU finished, with only promises here and there of things to come?with no shade, with walks and d beginning In dust, running along sand banks an<l i yards, and ending, like humanity, in dust again, tho tral Park, instead of daily attracting a greater numl visiters, is losing even Its Kabituij, wbo flock awi Jones' Wood, to Hoboken?to any place where th< shade, and It Is visited now only by a (few strangers, who go to see the Park as ther go tisee Dum a, or any other of our city sights. That this n have oeen otherwtae?that we might, more than a un h.rn hut the Park in a condition to attract an light visiter*?Is only too apparent, and the fault c failure is due to the mtgni Scent and complicated which baa bees adopted in its laying oat, and to the take of the architect In not following the natural I the land, and alio in not completing Oral of alt that lion of the Park which needed the least labor, ao tai public might have had a nreacnt good while a betta tare was preparing for tlfcn. TUB CKKTRAL rAKK Is about two mllea and a half long, and ooo half? wide. It la hounded by D.gbth and Kifth arenana, I ninth and 110th streets. Ita area ta about aeren bm and alxty eight acrea, of which about one bundre thirty alx acrea are occupied by the rcaervoira of th ton aqw-duct from whence :hc city la aupplled witl ier, Thoae who know anything ot the preparation c and the laying out of pardena will bo aurprtaed to that, since the beginalsg of the work on Hay 1, It to January 1,1800, ten thouaani fire hundred moc hare been employed, and one million aeren bundri sixty four thousand alx hundred and fifteen dolla seventy-four cents bta been expended upon three ai dred and thirty-two acrea of land Included In the and yet, not an Mre can be aald to be complete, aw one third of the entire area baa been almuet untoucl In the third annual report of the Park Oominiu the actual amount of worlc done is stated. Three ; third ml lea of road ara complete, and about Are begun or In prugreas. aeren mi lea of walk ara mm seven bridges are complete, or nearly so, three t>i being either bnill or raced with the finest freeau marble, and onatiog largely; seventeen tbiuaand hundred and sixty five treea and shrubs bare ed, and ten miles of drainage oompleted. Few, bos are able to realize what has, and what baa not been imply by a perusal of these statistics, aad tb<-ae will be much better determined by actual ins|>ec1 the Park itaelf. WHAT TUI PAHX WAS. The l'ark la naturally divided by tba reserroln two portions, which bare been termed the upper au er Part. Tbe upper Park baa been scarcely altered will b? described prea<>ntly. The lower Park, wbe cbaaed by the city, was a straggling suburb, c< with low, squalid bouses, inhabited by a claaa of p whose occupations ware really nulaanoea In tbe eye law Heap* of cinders, potahreds and broken were scattered here and there, and, in short, tbe | waa used as a sort of repository for all aorta of ru The grading of street* had hem commenced, and embankmeiita and rugged excavallona assisted tc tbe grneral aspect of tbe place atlll more wr and woe begone Pwatnpa and out cropping rocki an cflfect wbicb scarcely needed aid.

This oontracl has fortunately been given to parties who are fully competent to comply with their engagements, and, although tho whole < amount will not exceed 9119,000, It may pavt the way to more important negotiations for tho block paring stones, which are \mder discussion and for which most advantageous offers for this city have been made by Mr. T. If these contracts are given to the same parties there will be no more failures of contractors?no more injury to tbe important interests of the city?and the work I will be well and economically dono. I am led to these remarks for the reason that after the contract of Mr. Fairchtld?now Anally closed?bad been accepted, at a rate below any oth# offers, and his terms had transpired through members of tbe Council who made the oontract with him, other otrers were made, two days subsequently to the period allowed for the opening of the proposal!, and were entertained by the same Coutcll, after they had Informed Mr. F. that tbe contract was his, and required him to sign the contract and deposit I ho money as guarantee that he would comply with his obligations.
