Distinguished Strangers?Ole Bull?Borghese? t usstlla?Sea Bass and Snijie. Dear Bennett:?I have watched your columns closely for some time for a full and faithful history of sayings and doings at this enchanting place. 1 have been at the iamouB " Ocean Housi" now for some two weeks, and every day adds new pleasure to the most delightful scene. There are about 400 staying at this magnificent Hotel, which is planned after the U. S Hotel at Saratoga, but 1 must say the conductor falls far short of the inimitable Mar vin, in the management of his establishment. I could point out many things which could be easily improved, but us there is another paluce to be erected next year, by a compauy of New Yorkers, we hope for a little lmproveineut. Every house in the place is filled to overflowing, the principle ones of which are, the lleleveu House, accommodating about 250, and the Whitfield House, (named aliei a worthy citizen of this place,) which will accom modate about 175 This is said to be the best Eating House in the place, and from one or two dinings out that 1 have had, I received a very fa vorable impression of the culinary department. At least two thousand strangers are here at pre sent, among them some of the most distinguished in the Union The Episcopal clergy are remarka bly well represented in the persons of the Bishops of Tennessee, Massachusetts, and Rhode Is and The famous General D'Evereux, who fought so gallantly for the liberties of Columbia, and then lost his eyesight, is here with his assistant, and justly receives much attention. Mr. Middleton, and a large number of distinguished and fashiona ble gentlemen from the South and East, (for here the two extremes appear to meet,) are making this th- ir head quarter*. Politicians appear to shun this place as they would the yellow fever, the air being entirely too pure for such kind of animals. Most ?if the New Yorkers who are here stop at the " Ocean," several of which, both gentlemen and ladies, are striving for dear life to " get the hang"ol the Polk a,under the instruction of Mons Korponay, and not without a reasonable hope of final success Miss R., of Philadelphia, as yet bears of! the palm ?great season next, for short petticoats arid well turned ancles. But really, the only darice that gives me any satisfaction is what you term the "Polka in the water." To lead a beautiful, welU formed, soft-limbed, straight und narrow-foc.ied fe male, tar out into the green ocean, and dance a rmuu'e a uli her and the wild waves ; to have the roaring of til* mighty Wltftl for music, the vast dome of Heaven tor a canopy, and the hard sanded ti"l!?m oi 'he sea for a dancing floor?what can rX'tt-e, f ?|1 this 1 Can you, with your well known 'ruiifui imagination, tancy anything equal to thi<-1 IJo not suppose, however that we water nymphs imitate in our etietume, old Adarn and Eve, while yet in u state ot innocence. No, no; tar from that. 'I he Peris of the deep have naught to g.ize upon, ??xceyt a white nnd pretty loot, and love-killing eyes, lor even the face, as well as form, is hidden from view. But oh! the sport, the sport udehght iul. From New York I notice here some of your most fashionable citizens. You may well suppose with such society and so much of it, very little Idle time hangs upon our hands. We have a most ex cellent band, and what with dancing and rambling upon the " chll's" by moonlight, and listening to the sweet sounds of music as it echoes among the rocks and caverus?whut with the ntusic of a Bor ghere, of Ole Bull, of Cassella, and other minor stars, we manage to forget the world and think of naught but the glories of Newport. Do come Mr. Bennett, and I will show you how to poll in a sea bass weighing 40 pounds. O, 'tis glorious sport, and lor those fond of gunning, there is no end to the game ; so prepare youreelt another year lor a visit, for all the world will undoubtedly be here, as it must take the lead in fashionable watering places.

"Iowa is now the finest frontier countJy in the West, and is settling up very fust Judge W illiunis related to me some amusing scenes that he wit nessed, when he started on Ins circuit for the pur pose of organizing and holding Ins first > cutis among the rude frontier people. In many countte s ihey had not time even to erect at y of ?lirlter for a court house The best prov ston w hit h could be made, was to (mm seals of logs beneath the shade of a large tree, with a raised seat near us body, for the Judge The SSherifl would open court by mounting a stump, or mound, near by, and cry ing "Oh yes, oh yes," iSrc., announcing to the whole universe that the court was then opened, and inviting all who had business, to attend. The Clerk sat on a block of wood, and used a sluugle on his knee for a desk. A Iter the Grand Jury were empannelled, and charged by the Judge, they were sent in care ol the hltenfl to a latge hol low or ravine, in which ihey could sit in conclave beyond the view of the Court, or spectators. A smaller hollow or ravine was appropriated for the use of the Petit Jury. The grass grew very tall in the neighborliord, and if the jurymen lay down in a ring to the grass, they could still more perfectly exclude themselves from observation. The Judge said that, one day after having charged the Grand Juiy, and dismissed them to their quarters in the large hollow , a tail, raw-boned, live Yaukee looking man, with hat in hand, addressed htm as follows:? "May it please your honor, I with to tpesk to you." " Order, sir, what is it 1" " Judge," con tinued lie, with the utmost gravity, " is t? tig) t for lellows to snake it in the grassV "Howl what is that, sir!" "Why you see," said the Yan kee, "there's some lellows who's tainal Ituttl the Grand Jury will find something agin 'm, which they desarve, und they are snaking up to the Grand Jury on their bellies in the grass, kind of trying to hear what the Jury are talking about." " No," responded the Judge, with as much gravity as he could command, "1 do nut allow ol 'snaking.' Hera, Mr. Sheriff, go station a guard nround each Jury's hollow, and if a man is louud 'ennkttg,' have htm brought belore me, and 1 will came hint to be punished. Indeed, if this 'snaking' is per sisted in, 1 shall recommend a special uct to be passed, making it a misdemeanor. The fact was, the Judge said, there were present at the lime, some barefooted vagrant r. scale, who were probably justly suspected.ol horse stealing,hud "snaked it" on the Grand Jury, in ot tier to find out whether the Jury intended to present them, and if so, to gaiu time by this clandestine warning, aud flee the jurisdiction of the Court, by escaping into Missouri. From St. Domingo.?The Maria, Bowen, fifteen days from Jacme), Ft. Domingo, arrived at this port last evening.
