OCR N*!\V YORK LETTER.
New York, .Tunc 17.
the last man ii> this world to make a ve
teran soldier feel badly, is the writer of your
New York letter I see hy the issue of the
Herald of June 8, an Indignant note from a
member, of one of the New York regiments
in your vicinity, protesting against a remark
made at one oi’ our clubs. Perhaps it would
have been as well not to have put it on pa
per—but, certes, no true soldier in blue would
take umbrage at its meaning, for, of all n.en
those who have fought our battles, endured
hardships, and are now returning home,
he cannot lie classed, and is not classed
among bounty jumpers! The'fact is, certain
of the late regiments raised in this ritv con
tained a large number of .what are termed
“bounty jumpers,” but, from tlie testimony
of officers and privates, they never remained
auy longer with a regiment than they found
it profitable so to do, aud just as soon as they
ascertained their field of .operations in the
stealing line was restricted, they managed to
either desert, feign sickness, or hibernate id
the guard-house. No thing on clod’s earth
is thought so contemptibly of by our com
munity as a bounty-jumper,“ and the youth
who made the objectionable remark did it
thoughtlessly. Sorry, indeed, am I that, in
including it iu a paragraph for your columns,
1 occasioned a pang to a Union soldier's
who have returned home, with their tattered
and war-begrimmed banners, their even
tread shaking Broadway with its regular ca
dence, have received that heart-welcome from
our citizens as they passed that shows most
unmistakeably that their services are appre
ciated aud acknowledged. May they all find
that comfort and happiness in again resum
ing their old places in Home’s chimney
corner which shall compensate them for the
liberty and freedom they have secured our
We pride ourselves on our taste in this
metropolis—we do. We set she curious world
agog r.t our numerous exhibitions of t;iste as
variously displayed in its multitudinous forms
of palatial residences up town and our mag
nificently grand warehouses dow*h town.--
The facades of our buildings the whole length
of Broadway are evidences of this faet too
palpable almost for corn meat. We have in
one block some twenty odd buildings, every
one of which has a different front from its
contiguous neighbor—g marble pan with
highly ornamented carvings, cappings apd
elaborate stoops —the. next, a sombre, plain
brown stone—then a brick building with
white marble window trimmings and copings
—then a freestone building with iron trim
mings—some with gothic windows, some
with pillared doorways, some with vestibules,
some with massive oaken pgffßeled doors,
others of- iron, and nearly all with marble
dooring on the main balls. Then the variety
ot signs to take iu at once glauce would be
productive of a first-class attack ot Strabis
mus. Oh! we are a community of taste -iu
buildings especially, in <ir. vt ’ particularly,
and in our way of placing goods before the
public generally. Tlie greatest display of
taste in gent’s dress was out on Broadway
the hottest day last week, thus: —a straw
hat, a linen coat, a pair of white pants, gaiter
boots, and— a double-breasted black velvet'vest !
In the why of tempting taste iu the display
of goods, the old Irishwoman Vvbo placed her
two pints of strawberries on a couple of
large cabbage leaves, rather whipped our
folks who artistically arrange their show
The Resumption of Specie Payments
is being agitated in some quarters, aud the
fact, of the plentiful supply of cents is cited
as a means to retire all postal currency
below the denomination of ton cents. It
is a fact that we have an abundance of cents,
indeed such a surplus as to make them in
convenient. There are reasons in favor of a
resumption of specie payments'; but there
may be those who can recollect the time
when dimes, quarters and halves were such a
great inconvenience in handling that they
were converted into paper as soon .as possi
ble. So it is now with cents. Ere one knows
it, he has a half pound of metal in his'pock
et. And yet the public arc snfferingjnuch
more annoyance from the dirty ami ragged
postage currency, which, if the sixteenth
part of an inch is torn off, there are those
who are just stupid enough to refuse them,
because the Treasury Department issued a
circular that its notes would suffer a depre
ciation in accordance with the amount torn
from them. One* could figure up the loss of
a quarter of an inch off from a fifty dollar
note, but it would not be so easy to deter
mine that, on a five cent postal currency bill.

raise a row, whereupon the Georgian called
upon the driver to haul up to one side, dis
charge his load, and lie would buy the d—d

raised such a general laugh against old Olfac

Those Horse* niut that Carriage
which a number of citizens of New York
endeavored witbout, success tb present to
President Johnson, Were disposed of the
other day at public auction. It. was at. the
time General Sherman was iu the city. ’As the
animals and vehicle stood in front of the
Custom 1 louse, many people were seduced
into the belief dial Teciunaeh was inside of
the building. Quite a largegcrowd collected
in consequence, hut when the sale came oft’
it. was found there were vary few bidder*,
so few indeed, and so ill-disposed to pay
what the eommiltee thought.the horses
worth, that they were bid in at SI9OO (it is
understood they cost only $10,000). As the
auctioneer mounted the driver’s seat apd
stuted the preliminary terms, somebody ex
claimed, “Walk your horses up to the' eor

I span at home ; 1 wouldn't take lbe norses as
a gift: the oft horse is badly sprung.” .But
the horses were put up without showiug
their merits, the committee objecting to
what they considered so palpably ajocky
trick, and the committee bid them in at. the
price stated. The carriage was sold at
SI4OO to Capt. French, ot .French’s Hotel,
aud the harness, blankets, whip, etc.,jwere
sold for smaller sums. One person remarked
that the proceeds of tlie sale would go to
wards buying mourning suits for the contrac
tors who had been done out of a big job;
and so ended the attempt to bestow a gift

in summer. The steamboats are running,
crowded with'rowdies, thieves and fastwo
men to one end ot the island, while private
carriages without number are daily speeding

island and the ears run crowded, ihe two lat

The only trouble is that tlie hotel keepers
have learned tlie art of extortion tA their
hearts content, and while there are a few of
the class who act decently by their visitors,
the majority pay no regard to the comfort
of their guests, or the privacy and seclusion
of bathers. Among the methods of reaching
the abode of sand flies and sea breezes is a
line of running cars via Bath, newly intro
duced and doing a good business, but unfor
tunately running to the least respectable
portion of the Island, and aline of horse-cars
which run to the eastern part of the island.

Have been quite plentiful lately. The Brook
lyn Yacht Club have bad one in which thirty
small vessels were entered, aud quite a spir
ited race occurred. The New York Club
had their annual regatta cm the Bth, some
half a dozen yachts participating, and the
winners of which were the schooner Magic
aud the sloop Aunie. The prizes were an ele
gant silver, punch bowl and a cigar casket of
the same material. The feet of ihe latter
consist of four dolphins, standing, as usual,
with that “ queer fish” on their beads. The
race was a slow one, there being little wind,
but, still quite interesting. The manner in
which the little sloop Annie sailed under the
stern and around the bows of the larger craft
around the light ship was a theme of uni
versal praise and delight.* The first boat in
was the far-famed Maria, built, years ago by
the veteran Commodore Stevens to beat the
renowned America, but owing to her large
size aud great saii-earrying capacity, the al
lowance of time gave the jehoouor prize to
tlie Magic, formerly known as the Madgie.
A race has been arranged between the Magic
and tlie new yacht Josephine for one thou
sand dollars, aud another regatta by the
Club, in which there will be a full represen
tation, will come off soon.

upon such matters. The old regulations on
ibis subject, which had fallen hito disrepute
were simply enforced, apd the Lord knows a
strict application of them' was necessary.
Many of the coaches were alive with insects,
and worse still the effluvia of small pox and
kindred diseases have clung to them long

llow to Live iu New York
is something not one pcrson'ou’t of a hundred
knows anything alxmt, or rather, perhaps,
more strictly speaking, not one person In a
hundred knows’any thing about economy, or
is sensible enough to practice it. How many
thousands are there - who rush to the suburbs
to live because, forsooth, they cannot obtain
such a house-as they want, at such a rent as
they regard reasonable. They will go three
and four miles out by street cars, in Brook
lyn, Jersey, etc., anil pay SSOO rent, rather
than take a nicely situated house in the city
supplied at S7OO. Now
let us see how much .economy there is in
this. The riding will cost $l5O per annum,
that makes his rent at once $650. Then all
groceries in his neighborhood are from 50 to
100 per cent, higher, making his living at
least S2OO per annum higher, increasing his
rent to SBSO. Then the loss of opportunity
to secure bargains in drygoods, adds another
increase of at least $l5O, making his reat
SIOOO. A friend of mine, bought a summer
hat. the other day lor twqnty-five cents, bet
ter than one another friend, who lives in the
suburbs, paid $2 50 for; there was $2 25
lost. Another friend pays $1 25 for tea,
which is far superior to that suburban friend
pays straight along $2 for. Now these
“ bargains” are to be met with in the city
every day; they are so thick, in fact, that
one stumbles over and into them—provided
one occupies a house in town. But if he •
lives on the ‘suburbs, he is always in too
much of a hurry ip the morning to get to his
business, aud in too much Ot a hurry in the
evening to get home to take adfhntage of
them. In the morning, while he is gobbling
down his breakfast to “catch the next car,”
his wife asks him what, he will have for din
ner. He responds, with a hot potato in
his mouth, “Oh! anythiog, anything. Let
me catch i hat next car.” The poor woman
can’t go to market—too far off—all choice
cuts gone before she could get there—so she
is obliged to go to the corner grocery take the
vtwst. it has, pay an extra price, and do the
best, she can with it. The man conies home,
apd finds, perhaps, the same dish laid before
him, that he had fed on for three days past.
If he inquires why is this, be gets the con
soling answer, it ives the only thing the gro
cery had fit to buy. So it goes. This is only
a sample. As to conveniences in the house—
perhaps the water aud gas are in, and per
haps not. If the water ip not on the premis
es, it is, however, never more than two or
three blocks off, and can be brought in pails,
and he cari briug a portion of it when he lias
time. Yet economy must govern either
case. If a man is not economical, his ex
penditures will eat up his income whether fee
lives inside or outside the city limits. But
with economy, it is certainly cheaper living
in the city than out ot it.
