Autumn is fairly inaugurated, and the
"brown autumnal feeling," which denotes
its approach, hot noon-times, and ihe rle
mtmd for Soda Water liave gotie nwoy to
gether. Th sunlight streams slantingly
thus, the fleecy hiute 'which wraps the
woody shores of the "liny'' in Its blue
fold, und drenmily winds iUelf into the
Streets of the city. A dry leaf occasion
ally flutters to the side-walk, with a s:id
premonition of the time, when all leaves
shall have left. Peaches have disappear
ed from the fruiltwrs atnlk, and the spec
tral placards, warning Park-loMttgers off
the gr, begi to wear a mot king aspect",
as if they regarded what they were say
ing, in the light of a good jnke. The
Hotels are crowded, from the palatini St.
Nicholas, with ite Vow of genteel idlers
standing ut nil hours before the entrance,
(for the express object, it would seem, of
self-exhibition, nnd hy force of broad
cloth, much hair And more brass, to stare
bashful lady protnenailers out of counte
nance,) to the less pretention houses of
Courtl.indt street, where country-merchants
most do congregate. All sections
of the country are fully represented at
these, nnd lover of the picturesque,
could not full to be gratified at a dinner
scene, at one of them, say the Western.
As the hour npproaches, the entrances to
the Hall are thronged, and at the sound of
'.he gong, the scats are filled in a twink
ling, and shade of Apicius! what eating is
here! Flocks of turkeys, with brown,
shiny legs, nnd plump, frpgrant breasts,
dwindle instantaneously into a handful of
bones lomotoe, succotash and sweet po
tatoes, melt away like butter in the sun,
and whole rows of pastry, nre bowled
down with ten-strike. The almonds and
raisins esoape there is no lime for desert,
and in twenty minutes from the time each
set down, he may be seen tooth-pick in
mouth, Xirging his way to some business
Aniontr thi nimmn diacoverves of
our 'politics! age, which are "every day
applied do generalize luxury and multiply
comforts. I cannot resist the temptation,
to notice a substitute for (lug-stones,
which isjual coming into use, and which
promises to form nn important feature at
no very distant duy, in the beauty and
convenience of our streets. We refer to
the kind of flagging, in which the miner
al substance, called tsphallum, forms the
new and principle clement. We have had
an opportunity, teccntly, of observing the
construction of a piece of side-walk, of
this pcculi.ir character, and feel willing to
accord to it, a superior merit. The os
phnllum is melted, end while in a state of
fusion, certain quantities of Lilicla, and
we believe some other foreign substances,
but the ingredients, at well as their pro
portionj of the composition, are held in
tecret by the patentees, until the whole
acquires a consistency and peculiar quali
ty, which fits it for i's purpose as a mine
ral cement. A layer of broken stone of
the size used for MaeAduminzing, is
spread upon it, until the interstices are
mostly filled, and while the liquid is cool
ing, the paver'i rammer is called into re
el uisition. to consolidate the mass. After
this is fairly cooled, a covering of the semi
fluid is imposed., from two to three inehes
thick, and is smoothed leveled and pressed
with instruments, to as to form a coniinu
ous surface, uninterrupted by joints to any
extent of area required, which becomes
in on hour as hard a granite.
It is claimed, that this resists all vicit
situdes of the weulher, as well as rock
and that it is no more liable to be broken
by the superposition of weights on the
rolling of loaded vehicles, than paving
m .1 . . .
siones oi me same inickne&s. We are in
clined to admit this claim from what we
have seen of it, and certainly it forms a
most beuutifu! aiJew..lk, obviuling, in rainy
wcuther, if it be properly sloped, the diss
greeble necessity which the pedestrian
finds, of continually plunging into puddle
of dirty water at every step. Although
its price is somewhat dearer than com
mon flagging, it will probably be furnish
ed at much cheaper rate in time, and we
hope to see it in general use. It will be
a Cue companion for the Buss pavements
The meeting of the stoc k-holders of the
New York and New Hampshire Railroad
Company, on Tuesday, resulted, us might
have been expected, in nothing but an
open quarrel. The Connecticut people
pretend they can't breathe freely in the
noxious atmosphere of Wil street, and
therefore, the meeting of next month i.
uppointed at New Haven. We hope that

The Stnte Fair, which opened the third
inst., close on Friday, with nn address by
John P. Hall, and the award of premi
ums. A drizzling rain, which grew into
a stoim on the second day, excited the
feer, that the affair Would occasion one of
those miniature deluges, which camp
mrrting are popularly supposed to pro
voke, but to-day is aingulnrly favorable.
The fruit department is said to be unusu
ally good, especially in Apples and Pears.
Of the latter, the old favorites, the Hirt
lett and Virgellan, bear away the bell.
The domestic department oflcr little wor
thy of notice. A beuutjful Cashmere
Goa' attracted much attention froirt.the
ladies, who, judging from the manner each
fair visitor stroked his worship's long,
silken goatee, rather considered that ap
pendage an ornament than otherwise. As
a whole, the Exhibition must be consider
ed as inferior to that of last year.
An additional feature of interest is in
troduced into the political scrub-race, to
come off this fall, that is, the nomination
of Daniel Ulhnan, for Governor, by the
Know-Nothings. This could hardly have
been forseen, but some such a thing was
needed, to make the medley complete.

JjThe truth of the following, from

every editor who has had ary experience

it to our readers, and hope, when they

judge uncharitably of the corps editorial :
Selections for a Newspaper.- Most
people think the selection of suitable mat
ter for. a newspaper, the easiest part of
the business How great an error! It
is, tv all n:ean,, the most difficult. To
in. ever iiii.u.i os ul ea.ltnit
every week, from which to select eno'tgh
tot nn, especially wncn tno question i
not what we shall, but what shall not be
selected, is no easy task. If every per
son who reads a paper could have edited
it, we should hear less complaint. Not
infrequently is it the case that an editor
ooks over all his exchange papers for
something interesting, and Van absolutely
find nothing. Every paper is dryer than
a contribution box ; and yet something
must be had; his paper must come out
with something in it, and he does the best
he can. To an editor who has the least
care about what he selects, the writing
that he has to do is the easiest p-rt of the
labor. Every subscriber thinks the paper
is printed for his own benefit; and if there
is nothing it? it that suits him, it must be
stopped ; it is good for nothing. Just os
many subscribers as an editor mny have,
so many tastes he has to consult. One
wants something sound. One likes anec
dotes, fun and frolic J and the next door
neighbor wonders that a man of good
sense will put such stuff in a paper.
Something spicy comes outk and the editor
is a blackguard. Next comes something
argumentative, and the editor is a dull
fool. And so, between them all, the poor
fellow gets roughly handled. They nev
er tl ink what does not please them may
please the next man i but they insist, if the
paper does not please them, it is good for
To Make Socr-Krout. Six heads of

over a little of the salt until the whole is

pounded down with a heavy pestle. Cover
the (op with cabbage leaves and a lillle

K. JOHX B. COUGH.
Some few years back, in the early morn,
tapgering from a drunken debauch, might
be seen n young man in the American
town of Newburyport; he had reached the
churchyard of the town, and had come
there to die. In the wide world he stood
alone. Ilia wife was dead. He Imd no
friends. He was overwhelmed with mise
ry nnd with debt. A., he turned round
his anxious eye, he saw no way of escape,
any no ray of hope. There was nothing
left for him but the drunkard's unhonor
ed grave. Another drop, and he would
have become a. suicide; but the bottle
slrnck his lips, and that saved hit life.--He
went back to the : town..; A temper
ance meeting was held, and he was in
duced to sitcn the pledge., He did more
he left his humble calling that of a book
binder a became a zealous advocate of
the instrumentality that had done bo much
for him. Friends gathered round him.
As an orator he was perpetually in re
quest. For ten years he spoke three
hundred times a year, traveled ten thou
sand miles n year; his name was John B.
Gough. His fame reached this country,
nnd a twelvemonth since, he was engag
ed by the committee of, the London Tem
perance League, to visit England. He
came originally for six weeks, bttt he was
induced to stop two year. Nor will
those acquainted with Exter-hall oratory
wonder at the result. See Gough as he
tnnds upon the plat form, and you at once
I am the secret of his success. He is a
spare, thin man, with premature ape
stamped upon his face, with a stature by
no means imposine. Dressed in ordina
ry black, you would take him for a very
ordinary man, and the first few sentences
that fall from his lips strike you as little
better than common-p'ace. Wait awhile,
and the orator will warm; the mass before
him will respond, and it will beat as with
one pulse, while he convulses it with
Iauehtcr.' or melt it into tears. Th ff
feot is atrikiojr. The scoffer ii 4oMehed;
Pr,Mff!ie drunkard is tecinirneu'; Ik most de

piness, and heaven for lom. And what
is it that does nil of this? Not learning;
for Mr. Gough has never been to school
since he was twelve years old; not reason
ing, for he makes no pretentions to the
possession of augnmentative powers; not
rhetoric, for he tells a plain, unvarnished
(ala.and leaves it to others copiously to il
lustra'e, or gorgeously to declaim. But
the fact is, that he is in earnest; that it is
the terrible story of his life he unfolds;
and thsK, unved as by firs) himself, he de
notes for the salvation of others; a real
nntural eloquence, that never tires, never
wearies; and a tongue that never growl
dull. To save the drunkard to stop the
ravages of intemperance to build up a
barrier between the intoxicating cup and
unpolluted lip to bid man to be true to
himself and the Divino principle within
him; and to dush down the 'flowing bowl.'
wreathed as it may be, by flowers, and
presented by Beatify, for beneath, lurks
a'serpent that may sting ns nn odder; such
is the work of Mr. Gough such is bis
unva'icd theme. Had lie been an erafor
alone, he must have failed long before this;
but he is an nctor as well; he tins unusual
flexibility of face and voice. His fea
tures can express every shade of feeling;
his tones can give utterance to every emo
tion of the human heart. lie can be all
things in an hour; he is the very Proteus
of the platform . He walks up and down
it as one inspired; and you tremble all the
while, lest the spenker and the audience,
in the frenzy of the moment, should rise
up, and do something extravagant or mad.
You feel what a wonderful instrument the
human voice is what power the orator
wields. You feci that he has as much
power over men us when the Hebrew
Paul spoke and Felix trembled, or as
when the Athenian Demosthenes roused
the decaying hearts of his countrymen,
'and fulmined over Greece
Mr. Gough has now been twelve
months in this country, of which he is a
native for be was born (August 22.
1817) and spent the first twelve years of
his life, at Sandgate. Since he has been
here, he has traveled over England and
Scotland, and has delivered two hundred
nd thirty-seven orations to audiences of
nn average of at least one thousand five
hundred persons. He is accompanied by
his second wife, n American lady, to
whom he was married in 1843. Hit fath

such a life-like manner as to bring all tha

entire piece are of the most gorgeous and
beautiful description, and the various fig

of work. The features of the face have
an expression wonderfully true to nature,

a Quince stock, the whole not more than
four feet in height, filled with blossoms.
The tree was transplanted last spring, and
notwithstanding all the efforts to save it,
was supposed to have died, all the leaves
having fallen off. But within a few days
it hus budded, put forth new leaves, and .
is now in full bloom. We have upon our
