They and the oranlbua people ct course have an understanding about the division of that inevitable quarter thus extracted from every traveler who goes over the route for the first time?no inconsiderable item to such speculators, when it is remembered that each trip they thus transport for the 100 yards perhaps an average of 2U> passengers Taking the train of the t'entral Railroad?the greatest such enterprise In the I'nlted StaWs ex ? ept the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad?we were at once carried out of the limits of the built up city of Buflalo, having that laying immediately to the south of us for prrhapn a mile and a half anil the Iske mid river bordering the rail track cn the north. H lflilo, fmm the c.ir windows, wears tb? asp*. t of as <';Mtant!ally built a city < f H 10.000 inhabitants, alive with an industrious, intelligent, and enterprising people, bent on get ting rich bv commerce and manufactures, all the usual cow otr.Hants of which, and of abundant capital to prosecute them, and to live well at the nme time, being visible on all hands Already Buffalo, thus seen, shows few traces of the fact that iU UfitUrth la n# 44 " . v ? *m >v ?'? jc?inuay, as I ( WCTC.

W e were spirited away from Buffilo's nuburls at tbe rate*of forty miles per hour, over a level plain cat up witb fence-. Into little patches or farms, cultivated with great thrift, reaching Tcnawanda, the first considerable town or village, in twelve miles. The contra>t between the manner In which it and the villages of Northern Ohio are built up it very great indeed, and strikes the observ?r most agreeably. At Tonnwanda we crossed the Erie canal, covered with boats and saw-logs that had come down the iakes to be sawed, probably st that point; the canal's expansive basins there being full of them. From Buffalo the route to Niagara Falls lays, as far as I have yet traversed it, upon the bank cf Niagara river, with Grand Island in full view, but presenting uo features worth noting here *V~ * * 41 * ' * inuvu vi iur IM-iUlI J 111)111 till ?lei V DOrdfriDg tbS railroad track on the south Is cultivated with a degree of neatiiess unknown In our section of the Union, except Immediately adjoining our large cities, while not a little of it is "In the stump," or in the original tinpber; the latter, J take it. be. lng almost entirely undralned patches of swamp, arable land being too valuable hereabout to b* held uncultivated in these times.

Their oats, on the cthe; haud seem half to have been cut; reversing the order of things with us. On reaching Niagara Falls I found at the InternaUoua its usual summer crowd, numbering six or eight hnidred of pleasure seekers, embracing a large portinj of l*outberi!ers of wealth and fushlon.

Dear Star : I wrote you last from the lumbering region of central Pennsylvania From there I took a wide jump to the very headquarters oi board-and-sbingl?-dnm, where yon can me the biggest logs and the fastest saws yon ever saw saw?to the State of Maine, the Dirig? pine-tree State, a State famous, you know, for mealy potatoes, compact granite, pretty girls and floe young men; moreover, like New Hampshire, a gooc State to emigrate from. Here I enjoyed mvsell amazingly with near and dear friends, and took occasion at the same time to renew an old acquaintance with sundry cod-flshing grounds, and inland trout brooks as well. Dear reader, did you ever eat cod fresh fronr the water, caught and cooked by your own hands No,?then beg, borrow or steal the money to tak* you to the coast of Maine?to Portland, Bungernuck.

From this point you are within convenient reach of the lakes, and of stately Mount Katahrtin - "S 5.400 feet above the sea. Tourists are already beginning to seek hereabouts scenes less hackneyed than the usual resorts, and the prospect Is that the flood of fashionable travel will soon set full/ in this direction, a consummation not devoutly to be desired, as the people are almost invariably vitiated where such channels of fashionable travel are opened up. As yet, the Maine folks are tolerably unsophisticated in the business of fleecing travelers six weeks of the year and loafing the otlier forty-six. Maine is quietly moving forward in the march of improvement, and the construction of the Grand Trunk railroad lias given a great spur to business in this State. This ro&d is making strenuous exertions to divert a portion of the we?t*m rjm in.r ? trade through Its channels, and is measurably successful, judging by the barrels, tier upon tier, stacked in the warehouses at Portland of flour and mess beef bearing the Chicago and St. Louis mark Portland plumes itself upon its harbor, which is claimed to be the best on the Atlantic coast, and upon Its shade trees, having some3s,(JiH? of the* t? a population of perhaps 33,OUO. Rising boldly from the water, aud embosomed in foliage, Portland presents an exceedingly attractive appearance to the eye of the visitor. Hut donning seven league boots, I must make another stride, lauding at Capk Mat. Poor Pillicoddy has put it upon record that there isjpothing so sad as a jolly Jack tar wheu he does'ut happen to be jolly; he might have added, except a gay watering place, when it doesn't happen to be gay. Cape May's saucy rival, Atlantic City, has "hlsted her higher than a kite," although lacking the fine surf and other natural advantages of the Cape. But Atlantic v/ivy c?ii rra nea in uvo or tfaree hours by railroad fro'ii Philadelphia, while it li a tedious day's j;?iirncy to Cape island It can't be denied though that the assemblage is vastly more select at the Cape, and that the rag-tag-and-bobtail go to Atlautic City, Long Branch, and Roekaway. ' Mose" and 44Lisc" can s!1 p down to Atlantic City on a cheap holiday trip and back the same night "Mok" In a pair of blue overalls (and nothing else) and "Lize" In a rag of delaine that has outlived its usefulness, are en rostvmr for the beach, and splash about with the best of them. B^t this style of thing would not do at all at Cape Island, you know. Here we do the thing gent?eily. We dress three or four times per diem We go in the surf at il o'clock a in. We go In correct costume?bloomers of gay colors and genteel cut, and when we have a solicitude to preserve our complexions, we wear gloves and m sks of^oil-sllk. Wc never bathe alter 1 p m The surf after that hour is sacred to the Biddies, and to go in then would stamp us as one of them. We lounge upon the hotel piazzas after dinner, i r J A- *1 i * A - ? * - - - uriwr u> iup unci 10 usn, or to Liiainond beach to bunt Cape May brilliants, or to the steamboat landing to see the arrivals by tbe afternoon boat, or to Cold Spring for pond lilies and drinkab'e water. At sunset we have a carnival promenade or drive upon the long beach, and then go to the bop. if it be a bop nlgbt, or to tbe prayer meeting, if it be prayer-ineetlug night. Ou rainy days we read novels, write letters, flirt on the piazzas cheapen the wares of the peripatetic trinket venders, practice Indian archery (14 shots for 1J^| cents) roll lignum vifce at Barret's ten-pin alley, and kill tune tbe best way we can. The average attendance at the Cape this season has been about a thousand persons. One of the largest hotels on the Island, tbe United States, h?-s not been opened tbis season, or rather was open but a single day Tbe Cape folks, however, are consoling themselves with the belief?how well grounded I know not?that another year is to see railroad care running from Philadelphia to their own doors, when tbev count upon tbis locali'f resuming its old position as the leading watering place of tbe coast. Iu a late trip to Long Island 1 visited another watering place of departed glory?the once-fasbionable Rockaway? which is now about on a par with Couey Island as a bathing place. The surf bathing has been nearly ruined here by the forma tlon of a sai.d bar. t'r th* Hudson. on luonaay last i waa one of the3,000 who wei.t down New York harbor on the Hendrik Hudson, to ate the Great Eastern go to tea, and on Wednesday started up river iu this direction. Here let roe give the Star's readers two btta of advice No 1. Don't travel on a steamer cursed with a Calliope ?the newly-invented steam organ of that name. The Armenia la a fast boat, and can beat the Daniel Drew, I have no doubt, but it has a Calliope, an Instrument of shrill note*, pipes terribly out of tune, and an Incapacity to achieve anything beyond the Old Dan Tocker range Such an Instrument, shrieking its shrill, fslse notes up and down the Hudson every day, must be an InsnBerable nuisance, and is enoogh to spoil the ear of a whale community. No. a. Don't eat or lodge In Albany. You'll be gougtd if you stop five minutes in the place. As to sleep| lng in* city that has mile-long railroad tralua thundering in and out every ftour-of the night, It ia a matter of impossibility.
