I am now steaming down Boston harbor. How changed the island of East Boston In twenty-Are years slnte which time I bad not seen It. Then Its only Individual enterprise in successful prose cution wu a single mammoth sugar refinery, if I remember correctly. Its now successful dock* were then but projected and commenced, and a comparatively few indifferent boaaea were scattered over its waste. Now, from the water aide it appeara to be aa well built up aa the main citr itaelf; shipping crowding its docka and wharvesand Immense warebouaea and manufactorlea being In aight upon it, (the Island of Kaat Boston,) rising above aurroundlng buildings In all dlrectlona Soutb Boston, too, that forms the other flank of the entrance to the city's harbor waa them when compared with what it it la now, a very desert. At tbia time 1 And it a well-built, substantial city. At its extreme point (of land) stands the city's bouse of correction for vicious boys, a plain and modest collection of buildings. Further down the harbor we pass small islands dedicated by the city and State to penal and elemosynary purposes, all having upon them substantial and extensive buildings in admirable condition, and forcing upon the stranger who is accuuuiucu io a siaie oi wciciy like tbat in i&6 South, where there are few pauper* and fewer criminals, the Impression that with all their wealth and all their piety, Massachusetts and Boston must be cursed with ten time* their rightful share of crime, and twenty times their rightful share of suffering among the laboring classes from poverty. As I look back from about six miles down the harbor, with the sun just fairly down behind the hills, the sunset scene is charming indeed, tinging everything it touches with a golden illumination houses, ships, and even the undulations of the tops of the lower clouds on the shore, which look as though a row of brilliant lamps had been hung along upon all of them for a stretch of a mile. We are now so far down the harbor (having passed its staunch and costly fortifications, the Long Island Watering-place Hotel, Ac., Ac ,) as that the swell of the sea rocks the little steamer amazingly, though not unpleasantly to me. Lookin57 i mi ward th? hrrviH Atl*ntli? 1 under my eye*, while Its breezes rolling In upon me, inspirit me to write on, which, however, approaching darkness forbids. August 5.?Ere reaching Nahant (where I am now writing) last evening, the boat's windings in the shore-channel's Intricacies exhibited to those on board various very beautiful views of conspicuous objects surrounding and within Boston harbor, not otherwise to be seen to so much advantage : light-houses, ledge-beacons, light-boats, the State nautical-school buildings, half a dozen waterlug-place hotels, villages, and sumptuous water-side summering seats of Bostonians of wealth, besides Cape Cod and Cap^Ann ; the ocean being, from everywhere, in sight, the while On landing. 1 found the famous Nahant Hotel I closed ; the cost of keeping It open for the last two or three seasons not being paid by the patronage received It is deslimad to i D- ?wu?C hundred souls, and has a commanding position. But, alas for the vicissitudes of the tastes of the fashions of the times' Boston, though her wealthy men took Nahant particularly under their wing, has been unable to draw sufficient custom to keep such mn establishment open, even at this really flnest sea-side summer-sojourning point In the United States. It strikes me that the reason why, for the purpose designed, Nahant has proved a dead failure, is just because Boston's wealthy citizens rather than her working thousands undertook tbe job mentioned above, bxclusi vene*s evidently reigns here now. The peninsula Is studded with beautiful cottages surrounded by ?M prMsura^ (rraunHi MU?h ! r* kaht hw a family that seem to wrap themselves up In the ceremonious dignity of the Tycoon of Japan. Hence few except those whom tbey regard as equals in society find it agreeable to come here in summer ; and the magnificent hotel has consequently proved a dead loss to Its proprietors. I am at the unpretending village Inn, where I find every necessary comfort and very civil people. 80 I have been enjoying tbe quiet of thla day?Sunday?here, and the delicious cool breeze from the sea, after my own fashion. To me, the absence of pleasure-seeking thousands, adding almost nnexampled quiet to the soothing calmness of the beautiful water views from Nahant's rocks and beaches, is a luxury beyond expression with the pen. Turn whither I will, a new and charming view strikes the eye. The rocky islets nee.r the shore each look like an unconquerable natural fortress, their rugged proportions rising so suddenly and commandlngly from the water. The multitude of villages and outstretching ? m beaches laying scattered around landward, and the dark blue of the receding expanas of water, looking aeaward, keep me constantly with outstretched neck. Nature and art have both done more to make Nahant the most charming wattrside resting place on this continent at this season of the year, to the person really seeking rest, cool sea breezes and excellent sea bathing, than for any other such point. Cape May's surf Is not to be enjoyed here; but one finds here In Its stead, beaches equally as fine as those of Cape May, a multitude of views a thousand times surpassing Cape May's single view seaward, walk* and drives innumerable, unsurpassed anywhere, shrubbery and shade that will gladden the heart of any lover of those two so delightful luxuries to the fagged out city man of business; and s^a air that cannot fall to reinvlgorate his overtasked strength when quietly enjoyed. \Vith all these attractions, were Nahant really within the reach of the tnlllno thmiunili nf Rn>l?n lkl-L p, wxvu HWU lUt lUltft' ly-populated country surrounding It, iU fortunes u a lummer retort would doubtlcas have been different. But the wealth and Intense faahlon of the "modern Athens" have practically tabooed it to all save themselves. They cut a great dash, It la true, as they rode leisurely along its beaches on the r dally drives this?Sunday?afternoon, in their very heavy and dign.fled carriage*. But they fell moat woefully to pay. the people living here Interested in the busings of Nahsnt as a watering-place, who, while they would not like to If ae the ornamental effect of their magnificent cottages, doubtless heartily wlah every mother'a son and daughter of them to the , aa the destroyers of Nahant's prosperity. The finest Improvements upon the peninsula are those of Mr. Tudor, the Boston iceman, lie Is the originator of Boston's so profitable business of exporting Yankee Ice wherever Yankee ships can carry it to thirsty and overheated souls in other latitudes; by which he Is said to have amassed a large fortune. Tha fact that be Is a person of great enterprise and brains and exceed, lngly good taste, Is evinced In the style of his buildings and grounds?hia cottage of maatlve granite being the finest range of buildings for the Durpoee. probably. In the country: whll* ft* buildings are scarcely less substantial and orna. mental His ground*, too, surpaaa aim oat any other* In the country.

Ju*t now, Professor Aganiz, tbe naturalist savan, Is the lion of Nahant. He has a cottage here in connection with President Felton, of Harvard University. It would have afforded me great pleasure to have seen him, but no opportunity has occurred to-day, and I am compelled to be upon the wing again shortly after sunrise to-morrow; and thus must forego that gratification. Preacott, by-tbe-by, wrote most of his "Ferdinand and Isabella" in a cottage here, wblch la pointed out to rrnagers as having been his summer residence for years. W. D. W u.

Although this sad event was not altogether unlooked for, aa for aome time past she baa been observed to be rapidly declining, yet, so highly esteemed was she by all who knew her that It was with the profoundest regret the announeement of her decease was received. Many well recollect her as the sccomplished Miss Wickliffr, than whom there was none at tbst day possessing qualities which would be more likely to recommend them to the respect and admiration of all whom they might become acquainted than the deceased. On the morning of ye?eraay, in me pretence 01 uer venerame parents and other*, the Sacrament of tbe Lord's Supper wu administered by the Rev Dr Tustin, of tbe Presbyterian church, of which she wss an exemplary member.

This visit is with reference to the Indian troubles reported to be existing tbere. Tbe Commissioner expresses the utmost confidence in being able to entirely quell these little disturbance*; to restore peace and harmony among them, and securing respect and obedience to our Government and its laws From the success which has heretofore attended this abl? and efficient officcr.whenever be has visited turbulent tribes of Indians, we are led to believe that his expectations and hopes In this case will be fully realized.

Dur Star: Coming up from Albany by the rich valley of the Mohawk, I stopped over at Utlca, to visit the Trenton Falla, fifteen miles from Utica, considered by lovers of the picturesque to preaent pointa of romantic lntereat aurpaaalng eny thing Niagara can Bbow. These falla are npon the West Canada creek, a branch of the Mohawk. There are here a series of cataract* and rapida extruding lomt two ml lea, and ao deeply sunk in a rockwalled cbaam, that the visitor In looking oyer the landscape in quest of the torrent be bears thundering in bis neighborhood, is completely at a loss where to locate It. I spent a memorable day here examining the wonders of these abysmal cataracts, and emerged at night, wet, muddy, tired, and hungry, but sufficiently Impressed by the wild loveliness of the scenery, to consider myself repaid for the time and toil. Trenton Falls deserves, what advertisers would call" a first rate notice," and 1 took some most enthusiastic notes, but really the weather is too hot to write them out, especially as I am just now busy with the Titantlc displays of Niagara. Next morning 1 came on through Onondaga eounty, noted for apples, salt, and Syracuse conventions. Stopped long enough at Syracuse to take s look at a few of ita 350 salt distilleries, and at its acres of evsporatlng vats with their sliding shed-roofs for rainy weather use.

As be sprang Into the air It was noticed that he failed to keep his feet well under him, and pitching forward he struck heavily upon his face and breast. The tradition goes that he jumped twice with Impunity over Niagara Falls, but the truth is, his leaf there (at Niagara) were made, not the 165 feet depth of the falls, but, from a platform railed a little more than half this height, below Goat Island.
