XAdAY'S VIEW* OF BROAD WAY HY xi<;ht. [From lli?- London Illustrated New* ] Nkw York. December I, 1867. '?I envy you your trip to America." said mine urbane and friendly boat at Liverpool, a* two month.* ago, he took leave of me at his door, and wished me a safe and speedy passage across the Atlantic. There seemed to be noth ing very enviable in the matter; for the wind had peen bowling all the night, the mercury in the glass was falling, the rain was beating against the windows, and the prospects of the voyage, all things considered, seemed the re verse of agreeable. -And why'"* said I. with a faint and doubt less unsuccessful attempt to look comfortable and happy. '? Because." replied he, his joyous features beaming out into a still greater refulgence of smiles than they had previously worn. 4,you will get such delicious oysters! New York beats all creation for oysters.1' Mine host spoke the truth. There is no placc In the world whero there are such fine oysters as in this city?fine in llavor. and of a sixo un paralleled in the oyster-beds of Whitstable, Os tend. or the ilocher de Cadcale. Nor has the gift of oysters been bestowed upon an ungrate ful people. It one may judge from appearan ces, the delicacy is highly relished and esteem ed by all classes, from the millionaire in the I ifth avenue to the boy in the Bowery, and the German and Irish emigrants in their own pecu liar quarters of the city, which (soil ,lit en pas sant seem to monopolise all the tilth to be found in Manhattan. In walking up liroadway, by day or by night?more especially by night?the stranger cannot but be struck by the great number of " Oyster Saloons," " Oyster and Coffee Saloons.'' and ?? Oyster and Lager-Beer Saloous,' that solicit him at every turn to shp and taste These saloons?many of them very handsomely fitted up?are, like the drinking saloons in <lermany, situated in vaults or cel lars. with steps from the street; but, unlike their German models, they often form tbem in underground stories of stately commercial pal aces of granite, brown stoue, iron, and white marble. In these palaces, as in the hotels, oysters are to be had at all hours, either from the shell, as they are commonly eaten in Eng land. or cooked in twenty?or. for all I know to the coutrary, in forty or a hundred?differ ent ways. Oysters pickled, stewed, baked, roasted, fried and scolloped ; oysters male into soups, patties, and puddings ; oysters with condiments and without condiment; oysters for breakfast, din ner and supper; oysters without stint or limit? fresh as the tresh air. and almost as abundant ?are daily offered to the palates of the Man hattanese. and appreciated with all the grati tude which such a bounty of nature ought to inspire. The shore of Long Island, fronting the Long Island Sound, for 11 6 miles, is one ' long succession of oyster beds. Southward, along the coast of New Jersey, and northward and eastward to Rhode Island and Massachu setts, the same delicacies abound, and foster a large and very lucrative commerce. Id City Island, adjoining Long Island Sound, the whole population, consisting of four hundred persons, i* employed in the cultivation of oysters. The City Islanders are represented as a very hon est, peculiar and primitive community, who intermarry entirely among themselves, and drive a very flourishing business. The oyster which they rear is a particular favorite <?ther esteemed varieties come from Shiows bury, Cow Bay. Oyster Bay. Rock Bay, Sad dle Rock. Virginia Bay. and Spuyten buy vol This last mentioned place is iu the East River, near the Long Island Sound, and derives its n?me fr-m the original Dutch settlers of New Amsterdam in the days of Knickerbocker. It is related of an English Earl, not long ago a visitor to the States, that his great delight was to wander up and down Broadway at night, and visit all the principal oyster saloons in succeseiuD. regaling himself upon fried oysters at one place, upon slewed oysters at another, upon roasted oysters at a third, and winding up the evening by a dish of oysters a / Am* lane. As nearly all the theatres are in Broad way. the Broadway oyster saloons command at night a traffic even larger than by day. " Frit gv, rufititaunt nut! may designate humanity elsewhere, but here the quotation is out of place, and man is born to consume "oysters." Seated in one of these saloons, and amused at the satisfaction with which a company of Germans were consuming pickled oysters and inhaling the lager beer, whicu the I nitcd States owe to the German immigration. I heard a sudden ru*h and rumble in Broadway. ?? What is the matter V I said. ?? t>nly a fire, replied an American friend ; 44 but don t move Koliody thinks anything about Arcs here. If your own walls are heated by a conflagration next .t?or. you may bestir yourself, but not till thm." But I should like to *ee the firemen." 4 They are an institution in America, and, if you have not seen them, we will sjo round to their bunk-rooms/' 6 " Bunk-rooms ? I inquired, suggestively for the word was new to me. " \ es. bunk-rooms?where they buuk to gether." '? Buuk together '? Yes, bunk, sleep, cLum, live together in their bunk-rooms." We emerged into Br.?adway But there was no fire. ^ It was only a procession of firemen, with their engines (or en-gines as the word is Eenerally pronounced.) their ladders and their ooks Thousands of people lined both sides of Broadway It was a lovely sight, clear, crisp and cold, and the rays of the m.*>n fell upon the white marble edifices with a brillian cy as it they had fallen upon icebergs or the anowy summits of hills. Every object was ?harp and distinct; and the white spire of Grace Church, nearly two miles distant, stood out in bold relief against the blue sky, as well defined in all its elegant tracery as if it had sot been more than a hundred yards off. It was a grand turn out' of the firemen Esch company had its favorite engine, of which it is us fond as a captain of his ship gnily orna mented with ribbons, flag", streameis and flow ers, and prt*-e led by a band of music. Each engine was dragged along the streets by the firemen in their peculiar costume?dark pan taloons. with leathern belt around the waist, large boou. a thick red shirt, and with coat or yea: and the ordinary fireman's helmet. Each man hold the rope of the engine in one hand, and a blazing torch in the other. The sight wa? peculiarly impressive aud picturesque, and would have afforded an admirable subject for the facile pencil and brilliant imagination of John G:lbert I cunted no less than twen ty different companies, twenty engines and twenty bauds of music?the whole processiou taking upward of an hour to pass the i?oiut at which 1 stood. The occasion of the gathering was to receive a fire company on its return from a compli mentary visit to another fire company in the adjoining Republic of Rhode l.land, a hundred miles off Such interchanges of ciwility ate common atn><ug the firemou. who incur very considerable expeusein making them, and pre sent each other with regard and esteem, in the shape of silver claret-jugs, candelabra, tea eervices Ac. But the peculiarities of the fire men. the constitution of their companies, the life they lead, and their influence iu the local politics and government of the great cities of the I'liion. are quite a feature in American eivic lile. totally different from anything that we have in England, and so curious in every way an to deserve uiore elaborate Consideration than the limits of the preseut letter will allow. My present purpose is with the night aspects of Broadway?a street that quite as much as any street iu Loridou or Paris aflords material for the study of life and character. In one re spect it is supeiior to the streets of London. Being the main artery of a great and populous capital, it may be supposed that Vice reigns rampant within it as *x,u as night has dark ened^ But, whatever may be tho amount of lkoeutiousucss in the city, it does not expose it . teif to publie view in the open, glaring, uu blushing, brazing and disgusting manner in winch Londoner* behold it in the Haymarket 1 icoa.lilly Regent street, and the Strand. I ?k aot.!'f^eHk wf iu bidden vice ; but, as regards the public exhibition of it, New York is infi TmLlZZ V '!l?nLLondon' ?d almost ti ?, ^Hr,a- He know, however, that nsT .n!?" "TW ?f PaH?

New York is much more decent than London. Book-makiko.?Book-making must be clash ed among the fine arts, for indeed it is an art in itself, whether we consider it in its exterior or interior decoration. The English excel all others in the tasty arrangement that is re quired in a really exquisite work. They un derstand it in all its minutia?. Tho very title page is a model of neatness ?nd elegance ; and of such importance is the superintendence of this labor. that artists, trained men in their vocation, are employed in most of tho lanre es tablishments to attend to it in all its artistic Capabilities. ,? *rt has been carried to a high degree of excellence and finish in France Many have acquired great renown there in this depart ment of handicraft.

But for pleasure and convenience in use. the Wr?.rL ?V,th? yeneh bitders is inferior to that of the English, as books bound by the former are very .tiff-thatis. they open with difficulty, and require constant pressure to keep thein open. .No nation. however, can compete with America in the all-important item of cost. We make our books to sell and to be read, and not to be laid on the drawing-room table, to have merely their outsides admired and their con ents disregarded.
