There is a briskness now about New York which gives indications of an exciting fall, whether in business, polities, or pleasure. Places of amusement and churches are throw ing open the doors, and the thousands who played truant during the summer are begin nicg to show their sun-browned faces in our street*. My philosophic pen refuses to pa*s on without noting tho siiuultaoeousniss of the theatrical and evangelical seasons. When tte weather is too hot for amusemint. the ehurel - ts are closed. We are ail in a great whirl of excitement about tho great tragedienne, Rachel. Not withstanding all her faults as a woman, and ail the tricks resorted to by her inma^ei^? such as publishing a most exaggerated lite of her, as well us giving the utm< st notoriety to a f. w paltry act* of charity, if chMrity it can t>e called, which she has performed since her arrival; notwith.-danding these, it cannot be de mod that she is truiy great in her profes sion. Upon the first night of her performance nearly all tho celebrated acturs iu this coun ty were present, and those who are supposed to be tue best judges of the art were the most enthus astic in their applause. The houses have not been yet overcrowded, in fact scarce ly full; but tho great prices may make the thing pay. The prices range from SI to S3. Racnet hats are beginning to make their ap pearance; Rachel coats are already intro duced ; our restaurants advertise Rachel pud liing; saloots announce Rachel eocktail; and an enthusiastic Hibernian inforois the public that he is prepared to furnish them with supc r.or Rachel sirup prepared from arec'pe given to h:s father by tuat illustrious lady herseli when she resided in Cork, where she was born. Ot coarse his sirup sells. The parties and factions in the political field are beginning to marshal their lorcea in ear nest for the approaching election. Tho latest appeararce in the literary world [ is a book entitled " Tue Escaped Nun, orCou [ vent L'fe and the Confessions of a Sister ot Chanty. TLc book appears to be quite | leaduoie, but more especially mentionablc on account of the stratagems resorted to in order to get it advertised. An innocent tittle quarrel was g .tten up b^tweou Mis | Bunch lev, the escaped nun, and the publish ers, Do Witt & Davenport. It was stated by t tie lady that they haa taken unwarrantable liberties with ti;e text. This, of cour.e, they denied. The press through the ciuntry com mented upon the quairel?just what both au toor and publialieig desired. " We are in the midsl of a Revolution." An ism has sprang up, and is rapidly spreadiuc among us, thai threatens to turu our exiatLii: ?octal institutions upfidc down. It is the dxtune of "Free Lovo."

It is said that they alreaJv number more than 30 000. The association is called the 4? Progressive Union." The ad mission lee is twenty-five oents; and every member in required, after being initiated", should he de-sire to remain with the sect to surrender to the Society all his worldly goods. It is fair to presume that those who have joinod were uot very wealthy. The information brought by the Atlantic that Sevastopol is not yet taken, causes great disappointment and considerable pecuniary loss to our English residents, as heavy bets are pending upon the capture of that fortress be tween the arrival of one steamer and another Ibe allies have met with some little euc.'tss. however, and John Bull may win once by and by ii he keeps on betting long enotgh. lueFrencn residents are making efforts to get up a grai.d complimentary banquet to Ra chel at the Metnupolitan Hotel, previous to her doparturo on h?r tour through the United States. T*ctastH. tF* Here is a queer paragraph of history, which, had It occurred in one of Dickens novels, would hava been thought an invention quite absurd. We extract it from a speech lately delivered by that inimitable author at an administration refotm meeting in London: "Ages ago, a savage mode of keeping a; oounts on notchcd sticks was introduced into the Court of Exchequer, and the aocounts were kept much as Robinson Crusoe kept his calendar on tho desert island. (Laughter, i In tho coursc of considerable revolutions of time, the celebrated Cocker was born am diod. (Laughter.) Waikinghame, of the 1 u tor's Assistant, well versed in figures, was aljo born and died?a multitude of account ants, book-keepers, and actuaries were born and died. SUI1 official routine inclined to these notched sticks, as if they were the pil lars of the constitution; and still the Excne quer accounts continued to be kept on certain flints of elm wood called 'talies.' (Hear, and laughter.) "In the reign of Oeorge III , an inquiry was made by some revolutionary spirit, whe ther pens, ink ami paper, and slates and pen cils being in existence, this obstinate adher ence to an obsolete custom ought to be contin-. ued, and whether a change ought not to be ef footed All the red tape in the country grew redder at the mere mention of this bold and original conception, and it took till 1820 to get these sticks abolished. (Laughter.) "In lft34. it was found that there was a considerable accumulation of them, and the question then arose, what was to be done with such worn out, worm-uaten, rotten old bits of wood? I dare say there was a vast amount of minute mcmoranduming and dispatch box ing on this mighty subject. The sticks were boused at Westminster; and it would naturally occur to any intelligent person that nothing could be aat\?r than to allow them to be car ried away for firewood by the miserable peo ple that live in that neighborhood. However they never had been useful, and official rou tine required that they never should be, and ?o the order went forth that they were to be privately and eonfidentially burnt. (Laugh ter and chcers.) It came to pass that they were burnt in a stove in the House of Lords. The stove, overgorged with these preposterous sticks, set fire to the H?use of Lords; tLe House of Lords set fire to the House of Com moEs; the two houses were reduced to ashes architects were called in to build others; we are now in the second million of the oost tthere of;-the national pig is not nearly over the stile yet, and the litUe old woman, Britannia hasn't got home tonight.

Wilkiio Lbavbs or Arsraai.ta.? Almost everybody has heard of the wonderful walk ing leaves of Australia. For a long time after Uie diseovery of that island m*ny people really believed that tbe leaves 01 a cer tain tree which flourishes there eculd walk about upon the ground Tbe story arose in this way: Some English railors lai.ded upon tbe cjast one day. and after roaming about until they were tired, they sat down un der a tree to rest themselves. A puff of wiad oame aior g. and blew off a shower of leaves, which, after turning over and over In the air, as leaves generally do, finally rested upon the ground- As it was midsummer, and every thing appeared quite green, the cireumstinee puaaled the sailors considerably. Bat their surprise was much greater, as you may well suppose, when, after a short time, they saw the leaves crawling along B}-on the ground towards the trunk of the tree They ran at once for their vessel without stopping to ex amine into the matter at all, and set sail away from the land where everything sjemed to be bewitched. One of the men said that be ''ex pected every moment to see tbe trees set-te and dance a jig " Subsequent explorations of Aastralia hare taught us that these walking leaves are in sects. They live upon the trees. Tbeir bo il os are very thin and flat, tbeir wings form* ing large leaf like organs. When they are disturbed their legs are folded away undar their bodies, leaving the shape exaetiy like a leaf, with it stem and all complete. They are jf a bright green oolor in the summer, bat they gradually ehabge in tbe fall, with the leaves, to the brown of frost-bitten vegetation. When shaken from the tree they lis Tor a few niaute? upon the ground, ss though they were load, but presently they begin to orawl along : >wards the tree, whieb they ascend agsln. They rarely use their wings, although they iro pretty well supplied in this respact.
