The front building, erected in IS/2 by the grandfather of one of 1U present proprietor*, for the purpose to which it continues to be dedicated to-day, is 2v'0 feet long by 36 feet broad, and of two stories, with a dancing room 7U feet by 36 at one end. and a building jutting out bebind 90 by 36 feet, both of two stories. To the south on the lime (principal! street it has a brick building of lodging rooms, erected in 1*5*, 150 by .50 fret, and of four stories, near by which are a row of " garden cottages," three stories higb, with three stories of deep piazzas This row is -245 by 40 f et. and was erected in 1S53. This spring the proprietor* were induced by the anticipated pressure of this season s visitors to add still another mammoth building to their establishment; a brick w; ng on the north side, 241 feet by 55 Its bight is si* steri*s, including the basement That (the b.-isernent) is devoted to culinary purposes, laundry, washing-room, ice lined store rooms for butter and milk, fruits and vegetables, and for meats, steward's oilice, 4c.; the dining room for private servants and children is also there, and seats two hundred at a time; also the dining room of the servants emploj'-'d by the proprietors, which seats l5Uatatiuie. In the washing, drying and Ironing room, though strain is made as serviceable as possitile, some thirty women are constantly em jnuyru; wuue in uie kitchen there seemed to be as many more regularly employed when I paused through it while breakfast was being served to gm sis in the story ov*r head; as well as quite as many dining-room servants, down to till orders for individual guests The clatter of the tongues of the latter, as they repeated to the cooks the demands made upou them, was not a little amusing 1 was astonished at the rapidity with which so many and so various such orders were Ailed amid t^eir noise and that of the matty maids engaged in washing plates, dishes, cups, saucers, knives, f rks glasses, Ao. There were half a dozen French cooks, il'.ttln/ about in sDctless white. from their flat head-coverings down to their shoes, the pastry and confectionery rooms, the bakery and the steam apparatus, and a donkey engine that firctd all the cold and hot water required anywhere in the buildings, nil throughout every building and story of the premises The single steam-generating apparatus furnishes all the steam required in the kitchen to oj>erate the long ?eries of huge steaming ketties for cooking the vegetables. in the clothes-washing, drying arid ironing rooms, and in the carving room above bead. On this floor were also various store rooms in which groceries required in the cooking and making of the pastry and confectionery are kept Three large and very conveniently arranged ranges for the meats attracted my attention there, as well ts an admirable contrivance of one of the proprietors, for separating the refuse grease of the kitchen from the water in which it is washed from the china wire It will be found of great use in every kitchen, great or smai! ; and I presume its cost for the use of an ordinary private* f iiitily could not be- over two or three dollars In ;:.e second story of this new wing ii the diningroom, tit) by 5> feet, from the centre of which juts oat the carving room, 5<i feet by 1M. from the long table of which, covered with a mammoth henter, ail tbe meat*, vegetables, &.' , are directly served to the guests as called for J he rest of the length (11 feet) of this floor is used for the pantries required for the proper service of the dining hall, In which no less than 130 waiters are now employed The four upper stories of this ma^mtlcent wing tre devoted to spacious chambers,with a screen door and a solid door to each, as well as fan lights arid ventilators, and yas has been Introduced into every room Water closets are upon each floor Tue arhole number of sleeping rooms upon ti.e prenr,g?8 is gome 550, while it embrace* alio a sufficiency of all the other apartments required In su-h a mammoth caravausera.
