New Yoiue, Sept. 14.
New and Fast Steamboats
are the order of the day on the Hudson.
They are ui all sizes and splendor, and for
speed and excellence of accommodations
will satisfy the most fastidious. We have
the magnificent “Bt. John,” four hundred
and fifty feet long, the equally splendid
“Dean Richmond,” of nearly the same length,
on the night line to Albany, while two more
boats of equal proportions, are on the stocks.
The day lire run the “Daniel Drew” and
“Chancy Viobard,” smaller but remarkably
handsome boats, and there are on the river,
perhaps, nearly one hundred steamers of
great power and speed, which are almost
equal to these immense boats in beauty of
model and splendor of finish. Some of the
night boats have really luxurious accommo
dstions ;and are extensively patronized by a
certain class who travel just for the fun of
the thing. All go full of passengers and are
making money very rapidly. Many years
ago an intense opposition was made to the
building of the Hudson River Railroad by
the steainboatmen, who feared it would
kill their trade. But instead thereof their
business has increased probably two thous
and per cent., and the cars go crowded at
that. Speaking of fast boats, however, a
train on which 1 was a passenger, recently
caught up to the Chancey Vibbard near
Peekskill, forty miles away from the city,
and it was generally supposed we should
beat her badly to New York. Judge of the
astonishment of the green ones, when on
reaching 80th street, we found the “Vibbard”
tranquilly at the wharf, discharging her load
of liviug humanity. She had actually beat
en a fast train. Her only advantage was
that she made no stops, while the train
made a good many. Several other boast
make as fast time ssthe “Vibbard,” and one,
the famous “Mary Powell," can it is thought,
beat her two or three miles an hour. This
is a fast age.
The China Mails.
The Postmaster General has accepted the
tender made by the Pacific Mail Company
for the mail steamship service between San
Francisco and - Hong KoDg, touching at
Honolulu and Kanagawa. The compensa
tion ior twelve round trips annually is $500,-
000, for teu years from the Ist of January,
1867. The average rate of speed of the
steamers is not to be less than 200 nautical
miles per day. I believe the company have
already constructed and in process of con
struction vessels enough ior the service; for
in addition to the splendid steamers already
on the Pacific, there are here the “Atlantic,”
“Baltic,” “Montana” and “Henry Chaun
cey,”. all nearly ready for service, and the
Arizona and Eldorado in process of building.
All of them are large enough and have power
sufficient for the proposed service, The new
ships will of course be of the right stamp,
and the“Atlanlic” isjnow being refitted for the
new business she is to be put to, while the
“Baltic” will soon follow suit. These relics
of the old Collins’ ine are still some of the
finest steamers afloat, and will give a good
account of themselves on the Pacific. The
company baa, in consequence of the promises
of the Atlantic Company to provide accom
modations equal to those of the New York
on all their ships, relinquished the intention
of running steamers between New York and
are once more before New York audiences
at the Broadway Theatre. The house ia not
so welt filled a& formerly, the high prices not
being stimulating to the renewal of the ex
periment of seeing them in great numbers by
the public. Horace Greeley got off a gbod
thing the other diy on Mrs Kean. Someone
asked him if he had seen Ellen Tree. HU
reply was that he thought she had been dead
for sis years. Being confronted by the
statement that she was still living, had been
to Australia and was now playing at the
Broadway, he said, ‘‘Theoretically she is
dead, for Australia is a future state.”
The last production from the pen of news
paper correspondents Is issued this week.—
It Is entitled, “Camp-Fire and Cotton-Field,”
and was written by Thos. W. Knox, who
was for a long time chief of the staff corres-
of the Herald, of this city, in the
West and Southwest. This work will attract
great attention, as Mr. Knox brings bjs large
fund of old Boston common sense and his
own experience to bear upon the Ireedmen
and their value now and prospectively under
their new status. The description of the
Gettysburg battlefield,the day after the great
tflctory, is one of the most beautiful and stir
ring pen pictures of an awful scene I ever
read, fie paya the highest tributtMH) the

turned out lest week la this city, much to
the delight of our bob tailed urchins. There
is a State lew which divides tbd State info
•0 many military districts, a d each district
is supposed to have a regiment or brigade of
militia, who are to turn out once a year for
inspection. These “inspections” in many
places are something like the old ‘May in
spection ” the Bostonians used to go through
with when an old Queen's arm answered for
the arming of some thirty or forty militia
patriots, a salt fish served as a knapsack,
and a brick loaf of old bread, with a piece of
twine through it, for a cartridge box. This
inspection came off here last week, and full
blooded and foil uniformed brigadiers, colo
nels, and line officers turned out to review
their Bombastian army. One regiment turn
ed out four men, and it was the largest regi--
men tin the “service” that day! Whether
they performed any ground movements or
not, no one knows, but the last seen of them
was a zig-zag attempt at echelon on a neigh
boring gin-mill, where it is supposed the
Brigadier treated his companions-in-arms,
sang battle-songs, and all retired in a demor
alized condition to dream of the “tented
field" (on. Broadway,) where such heroes
hereabouts feel milch exercised at the pauci
ty of good mackerel iu this city, especially
after reading in Boston papers of the extra
ordinary size and quantity which appear in
the markets of the “hub.” To be sure we
have here a fish called “Spanish mackerel,”
which is much better than the undersized
blotting paper thickness of the “tinkers” al
lowed to come here by the Eastern fisher
men ; and we also have a plentiful supply of
most excellent blue fish, black and striped
bass—but then, you know, they are not

A Drum Feagt
took places in this vicinity last week. It
was nothing more than a pic-nic of the
drummers of the various city regiments and
bands, with their friends and relatives. It
was an elegant opportunity for those persons
who often sport of the “ soul-stirring drum,”
to have had their souls stirred up to their
eminent satisfaction, as the reveille was beat,
roast-beef was announced, tattoo was beaten,
and the “long roll” rolled out by one hun
dred and seventeen drums and an hundred
files. A friend says it was splendid —but has
ever since worn cotton in bis auricular or
One of those Sickening Outrages
which makes the blood curdle in the veins,
and raises the hair on one’s head, occurred
the other day in Queen s, ooudty, on Long
Island. A negro named Horace Aleck broke
jail where he was confined on a charge of
burglary, and the first place he visited after
gaining bis liberty, was the very house he
hgd burglariously entered. Finding the wife
of the occupant alone in the garden, the
men folks being in a distant field at work, he
seized her by the throat, threw her down,
and, after filling her mouth with dirt to stifle
her cries, he outraged her person. He then
rushed into the house and seized upon what
ever of value he could find, taking a suit of
new clothes belonging to the woman's hus
band. The woman, in the meantime, has
tened to alarm her husband and the other
men, but when they arrived the black scoun
drel had fled, and is still at large.
Spirits versus Petroleum.
The vagaries of the spirit rapping fraterni
ty have not yet ended, and occasionally a big
thing in that line is heard of. Ia Chicago,not
long since, some believers were informed
where they could “strike oil.” They trusted
and they bored. Bored deep into the bowels
of the earth, and that too in the heart of the
city of Chicago. Long and patiently they
bored, with faith and hope at the helm, and
finally they were rewarded by striking a vain
of, not oil, but water. The supply ‘is
immense and is stated at enough to supply
the entire city, and yet the fellows who
bought the land on the advice of their
spiritual friends, are disgusted, because
they did not “strike oil,” disgusted too,
though the value of their property has been
increased SIOO,OOO. There are some grum
blers In the word who will not be pleased,
and these men are of them.
Adycntures of a Bogus gIOO Bill.
Only a few days ago a well known Mer
chant of this city lost a watch,—a valuable
article, —under peculiar circumstances.
He advertised tor its recovery, promising
one hundred dollars reward and “no
questions asked.” Afterwards he called on
the police, who advised him to pay the re
ward and loaned him a bogus SIOO bill tor
the purpose, which they would subsequently
trace. The .merchant instead of waiting an
answer went straight to a house of ill fame
to have some sport out of his bogus bill.—
The establishment was kept by four sisters,
answering to the not uncommon name of
Smith, said to be the daughters of a clergy
man In the interior, and all young and pretty.
Here his bill was shelled out, and subse
quently attempted to be passed by one of the
inmates of the house for oysters and other
luxuries affected by the sex. On the case
coming before the courts, the merchant got
bis bill back, and ail parlies were discharged
from custody, he as well as the rest, for he
had also been arrested. The sistera created
a sensation in court from their agreeable
manners, and after their departure quite a lot
of elegamly engraved cards were found
scattered about the room.
Newest Matrimonial Agency.
I can class under no other heading a mat
ter wjrich I have observed at one of our lead
ing hotels. Guests of the house can see at
the table daily an old gent with one or two
young ladies under his charge. He has bad
within the last month fifteen or twenty dif
ferent ones, and seems to be playing the part
of ajofly old undo With a score or more of
unmarried nieces at bis disposal. They are
nearly all pretty, in fact the old gent seems
very ta|ty in the selection of his wares.—
Occasionally a young gentleman may be
seen dining witfi tbe party, and then,after the
edibles have been disposed of, the ladies have
left the table, and the wines are on, you can,
if near by, bear the old gent mafe use of
such words as “very nice young lady,” and
many others to the nune effect. Tbe affair
seems, as I have said, nothing more nor lees
than a '‘matrimonial agency.” If so, it is

Such is the heading which the Boston ad

O. P. Howard, Major-General,
Aproved. .Andrew Johnson,
President of the United States.
A Pardon for a Pistol,
A few days ago, says a Washington cor
respondent, a very interesting scene took
flace at the usual crowded reception of the
resident. Applicants were approaching
Mr. Johnson, each with his case ready; alter
briefly stating which, and a record being
made of it by the private secretary, way was
made for others. In the line was Mr. Banks,
an enterprising young merchant of New
York, and his friend Mr. Kervan, of Peters
burg, a leading miller, who applied for par
don, coming as he did within the twenty
thousand dollar or thirteenth clause of the
Amnesty Proclamation. As soon as the
President saw Mr. Banks he recognized him,
asked him his business, and hearing that it
was to procure a ’ pardon for Mr. Kervan,
he took a note of it, and told him,smilingly,
he would hear from him in the morning.
The reason why the President recognized
the young New Yorker is best explained by
the following short-narrative: In April of
1861, after the Senate of the United States
had adjourned, Mr Banks was going from
Washington to the South, on the railroad run -
ning by Gordonsville and Petersburg. At
his side was a very pleasant person, who con
versed freely on the different topics of the
houi, and finally asked him to change a $2 50
gold piece, which he did. When the cars
stopped at Gordonsville, there was a great
and excited crowd assembled. They at once
demanded, and sent some of their members
Into the train to see, “whether Andy John
son was on board ?” “ Let’s bear from him!”
“ Drag him out!"
At this moment, the gentleman at the side
of Mr. Banks rose, and was walking ta the
platform to show himself, when the engineer
started the train and dashed off at bis best
speed. His companion was Andrew John
son ! As he took his seat, Mr. Banks asked
him where be was going. He said: ‘To my
home at Grenyille, Tennessee.” “I am glad
we got off from those gentlemen, Governor,”
said Banks. “I am sorry," said Johnson,
“I wanted to tell them wbat I thought of se
cession,” Mr. Banks then asked tbe Gov
ernor if he was armed. The reply was in
the negative, when the New Yorker banded
one of his flue revolvers to the Tennessee
Senator, and they soon afterward parted to
meet a few days ago in the Presidential man
sion. Banks has his gold piece. to this day.
The nest moislng he was sent for, and as
the Presidint met Him he said: “I have
often thought of you, Mr. Banks. You gave
me a pistol that might have saved, my lite.—
I now rive your friend, Kervan, a pardon to
start him in business.” . •
