A VOTAGE ON THE AMERICA.
TUetrlp of the Star Line Steamship Ameri
ca from Savannah, upon which your correa
poadent made his journey north, was doubt
less one ot the finest yet made by that excel
lent steamer. The sun went down the first
evening behind the hazy horizon, where the
spires and roofs of Savannah had been lost
to sight, while the America was ploughing
her way past Fort Pulaski tbraugh the placid
waters at the mouth of the river, and rose
the next morning to show us the open sea,
hardly less calm. Throughout this the first
day. many ot the ladies among the passen
gers kept their places upon deck, although
the long swell of the ocean caused the ves
sel to roll a little. The second day out, we
had a succession of light squalls which
pitched us about somewhat, and made many
sea sick. But the wind was favorable, and
with all sail set, the America bounded over
the waves in a manner that made amends for
any unpleasant disturbance in the stomachic
regions. We passed that day a number of
steamers and other vessels bound South, and
breasting the same wind and waves that were
speeding us to our destination. Among the
steamers we met was the Nevada, which
passed so near that we exchanged signals.
The third day was fine and pleasant, with a
light head wind however. In the afternoon,
the number of the sail in sight indicated that
we were near port, and at about four o'clock
the appearance of land, in the shape of the
light house at Absecom Point on the New
Jersey shore, brought out everybody on
deck. Glasses were in great demand, and
the apparition of the lighthouse and other
buildings whose dim outlines just peered
above the “rim of waters,” was hailed with
much joy by the ocean-tossed travellers.
That night, the moonlighted decks of the
good steamer America were gay with groups
of light-hearted tourists, watching for the
lights on shore, and gazing on the beauty of
the now peaceful sea. Praises of the staunch
and elegant steamship, which had borne
them so comfortably and so prosperously on
their delightful voyage, and of her able and
gentlemanly and attentive officers, were
heard on every hand, and many like bon
voyages were wished to Capt. Clift and Purser
Owen, of the America.
Everybody rose at daylight the next
morning, to find themselves already close
upon the Narrows in New York harbor. —
The verdant and romantic-looking heights
of Staten Island, with the white light house
on the shore, here and there an elegant villa
showing among the trees, and with summit
crowned by an immensely strong fortifica
tion, called forth expressions of delighted
admiration. Across the Narrows, on the
left hand, lay the dark little Fort Lafayette,
in the shadow of the wooded shore. Pass
the Narrows, by the thickly-settled shores
of Staten Island, and making a short stop at
Quarantine for the visit of the Quarantine
Officer, the America steamed up the magni
ficent bay, winding her way among the
steamships, war-vessels, tugs, river-boats
and sailing craft ot all kinds, with which the
great metropolitan harbor swarms, reaching
her dock before seven o'clock in the morn
ing ; when the passengers yielding them
selves up to their respective backmen, sep
To one coming from the quiet streets of
the “Forest City” of Georgia, the rush and
whirl of the Great Metropolis, are at first be
wildering indeed. ' It takes a day or so to
accommodate one’s self to the elbowing,
pushing and hurrying of the throng which
incessantly streams along the sidewalks of
Broadway. One feels it to be a perilous
feat to attempt to cross the streets, and af
ter getting over, wonders bow he escaped
being run dowu by someone of the numer
ous stages, drays, wagons or heavy teams,
which tear along over the uneven and slip
pery pavements. The appearance of
Broadway is not much changed, except per
haps at the spot where Barnum’s Museum
formerly stood. Instead of the imposing
building, which with its mammoth paintings
of giants and living skeletons, and
wild beasts and fat women, was the
mecca of the countrymen in the city, and
his landmark from which be radiated ex
plorations in various directions through the
vast town ; there is now only a rough bar
ricade enclosing a bole full ot broken brick,
and the debris of iron fixtures. The fence
about the ruins encroaches upon the side
walk, and what with the crowd rushing by,
and the crowd standing still, and the street
full of vehicles pouring by within a few
inches of the broken walk, the old comer
whereon it was once a delight to walk, has
become a perfect maelstorm of peril. In
deed the condition of the streets throughout
the city is frightful, they being not ohly
badly out of repair as to tiles and paving
stones, but also sadly neglected from week
to week by the scavengers and street-sweep
ers. In some sections the public thorough
fares are reeking with garbage, and the
air tainted with disease-bearing odors.
THXOUOH NEW ENGLAND.;

the traveller across New England, nearly
The brown hills, with their rocky sides, and

In the scaton. The country smiles, though,
with its clustering villages, and the well-to

village and station upon the railroad, two or
three populous and handsome streets may
be seen from the car-window, with the com
fortable dwelling houses of the people, their
churches, thriving stores or busy manufacto

The wealthy old city of Boston still contin
ues to flourish and grow with the vigor of a
voung lown. Approaching the city from
the southwest, one finds the broad flats and
marshes, two or three miles across, which a
few years ago were washed by the tide
water, converted into terrafenna and built
over with costly brick-blocks. In fact, the
Back Bay Lands, as this district was former
ly called, is now the fashionable quarter of
the city for residences. The streets formerly
occupied] by the mansions ot the “first fami
lies" have gradually been given over one by
one to trade. Beacon and Tremont streets
have long since yielded in point of respecta
bility to Arlington street and the new avenues
of the “Back Bay Lands.” The mansion of
the Everett family, where the lamented Ed •
ward Everett breathed his last, and which
was once in a retired and elegant vicinity,
I find now crowded on all sides with the
towering palatial stores of the Dry Goods
Boston is a marvellously clean city, the
streets being everywhere as tidy and free
from dust or mud, as the beautiful Common,
which itself is kept as scrupulously neat as
a gentleman's private grounds. Among the
objects of interest to the visitor in Boston,
are tho new City Hall, now about completed,
and which Is a structure of magnificent and
harmonious proportions, and of an elegant
and correct style of architecture and worthy
of “the modern Athens," and the new statue
of Horace Maun at the State House, where
it occupies a place with that of Daniel Web
ster. The statue of Ben. Franklin is now
permanently located in front of the City
THE FEELINO TOWARDS THE SOITTH.
I regret to state that the feeling towards the
South, as I have observed it exhibited here,
is not what those who desire speedy recon
ciliation could wish it to be. The activity ol
certain newspapers in collecting and group
ing all facts, reports, and impressions, rela
tive to the spirit of the South, many of which
it is unnecessary to say are destitute of any
color of truth, has been the means of a wide
spread belief getting a hold upon the public
mind, that the temper of the Southern people
is vicious, dangerous and inclining even to a
new warlike outbreak. The most astonishing
misapprehension of the condition of affairs,
and of the feeling of the people, at the South,
prevails even with those who should be well
informed. It will take the intimate and un
reserved communication arising from busi
ness Intercourse between the sections, to
open the eyes of both peoples to the real
feeling of their neighbors.
The utmost activity prevails among the
manufacturers of this vicinity. Nothing like
i* was ever known before. The only thing
complained of is the lack of tbe raw material
and the dearth of operatives for the factories.
Business throughout all its various branches
is unprecedentedly good this, the “quiet"
season of tbe year.
There have been a number of diplomatic
changes of late by the British government,
several applying to this continent. Mr.
Phipps, a third secretary at Washington, is
transferred to Munich; and Mr. Smyth,
another of the Secretaries at Washington,
is transferred to St. Petersburg. Mr. Thorn
ton, now Minister at Buenos Ayres, is trans
ferred to Rio ; the Hon. Richard Edwards,
Charge at Caraccas, succeeds to the Minis
try at Buenos Ayers, Mr. Fagan is trans
ferred from Quito to Caraccas ; and the Hon.
F. J. Pakenham, Secretary of Legation at
Buenos Ayres, is to be Secretary at Rio.—
Other minor changes are also announced.

PROCLAMATION BI THE PRESIDENT.
The following proclamation was issued this
By the President of the United States of Amer
ica : '
Whereas, by ray proclamations of the 13th
and 24th of June, 1865, removing restrictions
in the part upou internal domestic and coast
wise intercourse and trade, with the States
recently declared in insurrection, certain ar
ticles were exempted from the effect of said
proclamations as contraband of war; and
whereas tbe necessity for restricting trade in
said articles has now, in a great measure
ceased, it is hereby ordered that on and after
tbe first day of September, 1865, all restric
tions aforesaid be removed, so that the arti
cles declared by tbe said proclamations to be
contraband of war may be imported into and
sold in said States, subject only to such regu
lations as the Secretary of the’Treasury may

Wm. H. Seward, Secretary of State.
THE TRIAL OF JEFF DAVIS.
The trial of Jefferson Davis will take place
before a United States Circuit Court, but the
particular one has not yet been designated.
TTiere seems to be no importance attached to
tbe fact that the Grand Jury of the District
of Columbia some months ago found a true
bill against him for constructive treason in
sending his troops to operate against Wash
ingtonin the summer of 1864. The Grand
Jury of the court at Knoxville has indicted
him for treason, for there Davis harangued
the people against the United States govern
ment. The trial, however, cannot now take
place in that town, or at any other place in
the Tenth Judicial District, for the reason
the vacancy occasioned by the death of Asso
ciate Justice Catron has not yet been filled.
As military operations against tbe United
States were directed by orders given from
Richmond, it is probable that the trial will
take place at Norfolk, Virginia, in which
event Chief Justice Chase will preside, as
that State is embraced in the Judicial Circuit
assigned to him.
POST OFFICE CONTRACTS.
The Postmaster General has mode a con
tract for conveyance ot the mails from Nor
folk, by Hampton, to Old Point Comfort and
back six times per week. He has also order
ed the opening Os various post offices in
North and South Carolina.
The Postmaster General yesterday accept
ed the tender made by the Pacific Mail Steam
ship Company for tbe mail steamship service
between San Francisco and Hong Kong,
China, touching at Honolulu, in tbe Sand
wich Islands, and Kanagawa, in Japan, as
authorized by act of Congress and approved
February 17, 1865. The compensation for
twelve round trips, out and back, is $500,-
000. The company is to build four first class
sidewheel steamships, of from three thousand
five hundred to four thousand tons burthen
each, government measurement, and the
first steamship of the line is to leave San
Francisco for China on or before tbe Ist of
January, 1867. The term of the contract is
ten years from tbe date of tbe commence
ment of the service. The distance from San
FVgncisco to Hong Kong.is seven thousand
and fifty miles, and from Sau Francisco to
Kanagawa, the nearest coal depot, five thou
sand four hundred and seventy-five miles.—
The average rate of speed of the steamships
while at sea is to be not less than two hun
dred nautical miles per day.
APPLICATIONS FOR PARDON
A. Q. P. Nicholson , at one time editor of
the Washington Union, and Gideon J. Pillow,
late a general in the rebel army, were to-day
among tbe applicants for pardon.
CONFISCATED PROPERTT IN VIRGINIA.
It is reported that among the owners of a
large amount of property in Virginia adver
tised by General Howard as confiscated ap
pear the names General Eppa Hutton, late of
the rebel army ; Commodore French Forrest
and Ricbaloe, tbe guerilla. Tbe property is
divided into two bundled and three lots,
situated in London, Fairfax, Elizabeth City,

folk counties, and in the cities of Portsmouth
THE LATE TREASURY DEFALCATION.
The late Treasury defalcation was not so
disastrous as at first supposed, nor is It by
any means certain that the government will
sustain n loss at all in tbe final settlement.—
Nearly twelve hundred thousand dollars
were involved, If reports be true. Os this
amount it has transpired that about seven
hundred thousand dollars were promptly set
tled by conveyances, and assignments pur
porting to be good for the balance have also
come into possession of the depart „ient. In
addition to this bail bonds are held for near
ly a quarter of a million of dollars. From
all these sources the government can cer
tainly realize the bulk ot Its unpaid balance.

Cishi or Left Handrdnn,.
The question has been much discussed
among anatomists, whether the properties of
tbe right band, in comparison with those of
the left, depend on the course of the arteries
to it. It is affirmed that the trunk of the arte
ry going to the right arm passes off from the
heart, so as to admit tbe blood directly and
more forcibly into the small vessels of the
Tnis is assigning a cause which is unequal
to the effect and presenting altogether too
confined a view of the subject; it is a parti
cipation in tbe common error of seeking in
the mechanism tbe cause of phenomena
which have a deeper source.
For tbe convenience of life and to make us
prompt and dexterous, it is pretty evident no
hesitation which hand is to be used, or which
loot is to be put forward ; nor is there in fact
any such indecision. Is ibis taught ; or have
we this readiness given to us by nature ? It
must be observed, at the same time, that
there is a distinction in the whole right side
of tbe body, and that the left side is not the
weaker in regard only to muscular strength,
but also in its vital or constitutional proper
ties. Tbe development of tbe organs of
action and melton is greatest upon the right
side as may at any time be ascertained by
measurement, or tbe testimony es the tailor,
or shoemaker ; certainly ; this superiority
may be said to result from tbe more frequent
exertion of the right hand ; but the peculiari
ty extends to tbe constitution also, and dis
eases attack the left extremities more fre
quently than tbe right.
In opera-dancers, we may see that the
most difficult feats are performed by tbe right
foot. But their preparatory exercises better
evince the natural weakness of the left limb,
in order to avoid awkwardness In the public
exbibiiioD ; for if these exercises be neglect
ed, an ungraceful performance will be given
to tbe right tide. In walking behind a per
son, it is very seldom that we see an equaliz
ed motion of the body : and if we look to the
left foot, we shall find that tbe tread is not so
firm upon it, that the toe is not so much
turned out as in the right, and that a greater
push is made with it. From the peculiar form
of woman, and the elasticity of her step, re
sulting more from the motion of the ankle
than of the bauuches, the detect of the left
foot, when it exists, is more apparent in her
gait. No boy hops upon his left foot unless
he be left handed. The horseman puts his
left foot in the stirrup, and springs from tbe
We think we may conclude that everything
being adapted, in tbe conveniences of life, to
the left hand—as for example—the direction
of the worm screw or ot the cutting end of
the auger—is not arbitrary, but is related to
a natural endowment of tbe body. He who
is left handed is most sensible to the advan
tages of this adaptation, from the opening of
a penknife. On the whole, the preferences
of the right hand is not the effect of habit,
but is a natural provision and is bestowed
for a very obvious purpose, and the property
dues not depend on tbe peculiar distribution
of tlie arteries of the arm, but the preference
is given to the right foot as well as to the
right hand.— Sir Charles Bell's Bridgewater
