Mr. A J Grayson was at Sau Francisco. For the information of his friends we would state that he had served as a Lieutenant in the army, but that at last dates he was engaged in the lumber business. From the Spectator of April 15th, we extract the following :? " Byi the arrival of the Hudson Bay Company's bark Cowlitz, from Kngland. we have received a copy of the Oregon treaty, the ratifications of which were exchanged at London on the 17th of last July. Well, we are relieved of suspense, and the long agony Is over. What we published in our last as purporting to be the treaty, proves to be such, although we doubted it at the time. We can say nothing for the document, but much against it. it certainly, in our estimation, can never be popular with the great body of the Americans in Oregon. We shall wait anxiously to sue how this singular circumstance can lie accounted for at home, and how this surprising and unconditional surrender of right will be justified " In one of his editorials Mr. Curry remarks : " The fact that four vessels have entered our river nearly together, have received their cargoes and are off again within a month, argues well for our commerce, and gives a promise of what Oregon may yet do.

The season thus far, at thin place, ban been remarkably quiet and pleasant, though crowded for the whole time?about three hundred have sojourned here at the Marine Pavilion, and at the numerous cottages. Secretary Walker, who came here much debilitated a few weeks since, is now entirely changed in appearance. Considerable amusement has been afforded to the company here to-day, by the kindness of Colleetor Lawrence. who is residing here, and who yesterday directed that the government life boats stationed in the neighborhood should be exercised in the surf, by such nautical gentlemen, and others, as should volunteer for the purpose. Accordingly a land and naval force was organized, last evening, comprising Home of the mest experienced and talented men in these respects. The boats were commanded by Com. Hoffman, late of the navy assisted by Captains Charles King,'Leavenworth, Schermerhorne, Kred. Foster, Johnson, White, Clinton, and Tucker, with several Lieutenants. Mr. Secretary Walker wan very unanimously appointed paymaster. Of the land force, Mr. Phillip Iione, Campbell P. White, J. A. King, Jr . and several others, with Mussrs. Cranston and ex-President Kisk, as masters of transportation and subsistence. The main life boat which is capable of taking 130 pernenn, and with about that number on board,was launched through a most tremendous surf, and was at sea clear of the breakers in seven minutes, from the moment she touched the water. This boat was enmronnded by the commodore in person, (Joeiali O^iUu II llinan,) there were over 1000 pemous on the nburc i" witness their performance. These boats, it bhould be remarked, were originally provided by the underwriters of Wall street, immediately after the wreck of the DrUtol and Mexico, JiL or u?ar tuin piuco. a u?o puTimun uu iu? jrrnry shore, would have saved many liven during the disastrous winters of '44, '45 and '4B. They ar? mounted on four broad wheel* each, and in perfect readiness to be drawn by two or four horses to the spot wi ere they are required. After the services of the day were over, Mr. Cranston, the esteemed proprietor of the pavilion, and whoFe kindness is so generally acknowledged, gave a uiost brilliant entertainment to all the parties engaged. The remarks of the several distinguished persons present, would be well worthy of publication. Mr. Walker, as well as Messrs. Hone, King, iioiTuian and Clinton, were exceedingly happy, the former particularly in his allusions to the distinguished services of our navy.

Au revoir. Saratoua Sminof, July 18, 1847. Jl Litll'. of Everything?Cold IVater anil Polititi. The millionaires of the country are holding their annual soiree* and festlTltie* now. Within three days, the luxuries of this unrivalled spot have opened to the full enjoyment of the|r<i(r and>xclusive;and the middling order, too, are engaged in the merry soenes. The then principal houses, viz: the United State*, the Union Ho] tel and Congress Hall, are pretty well crowded, and the proprietor* have already commenced " lodging out" the " single" gentlemen. The .Tillage whs never in a more charming condition ; the park, lawns, (brents, meadows and beautiful pathways, are as cleanly and inviting as ever I saw them. Congress Spring, the great 'attraction, is of course visited by everybody, to deluge themselves with its sparkling and exhillratlng waters. There Is a magic, or an attraction here, which very few can ever withstand.? Scarcely a single person, upon first tasting the water can relish it with any degree of satisfaction. But upon a second or third trial, it becomes somewhat more pala< table, and in the count) of a week, they become complete ly delighted, and it becomes so delicious that pints ant quarts are devoured like " strawberries and cream." ] say this is the great attraction. Out is not .so by nature It nan become so. mainly by the artificial oonveniencei bestowed upon it by the.owners, combined with the pro prlutnrs of the magnificent hotels mentioned above which aro all located in the immediate vicinity ol Congress spring. The bottling of these waters foi transportation, is now most exclusively confined to thii spring- thousands of bottles are daily despatched on tneir mission of heulth and curiosity. The Tavillon and Iodine are not this season sent abroad, for the same reasons. 1 suppose, which notuate proprietors of opposition steamboats on the Hudson river, who suddenly withdraw them from competition, viz : the i/Mid pro quo. I say, that Congress Spring, by nature, Is not the greatest attraction at this famous resort of mineral waters. I consider what is called the " High Kock Spring," decidedly superior to Congress in its natural state. It Is situated about half a mile down the valley, north of Congress, of a conical form of solid rock, some thirty feet in ciroumference. elevated three or four feet, with a natural aperture in the ceutre. through which the water is drawn up about three feet by means of glass dippers. 1 um informed that in former years, the water bubbled and boiled through this aperture, und overran the roek like an artificial fountain : and I understand that Professor Hall, the eminent geologist and scientific naturalist, is well convinced that the overflowing of this pe dinar kiuu 01 mineral waiiTK ior ages una centuries, produced the formation of thiH curiously wrought rock Thu water, an near a* I can judge by taut*. In about a* highly charged with mineral propertied aa the Congress and I think it would be very difficult for any unprejudiced person to distinguish between them The realtor why the water does not elevate itself to the top and overflow the rock, in, because by mean* of some convulsion of nature, either by heat, cold, or some other cause the rock ha* become split, and a crevice is made, through which the water discharges Itself some three feet belov the top of the cone. This curiosity remains negleoted save the attention of a poor woman, who expeses hersel to the boiling sun. for the sake of obtaining whatevei remuneration may be bestowed upon her by those win possess curiosity sufficient to visit and taste the wateri of this spring. Another spriHg is being opened, a few rods still furthei north than High Hock, to be called the ' Umpire," h rear of which the Knipire Hotel, a small new publii house, ha? been recently built, and is nearly ready to b> thrown open. But the waters of this spring are ? deeply impregnated with such nauseating iiualitiea, tha it will scarcely be made much of an attraction i (The society of Saratoga baeso often been described s being universally aristocratic, distant and selBsh, tha it has become proverbial. A stranger visiting here, eithc in pursuit of health or pleasure, even at an expense < twenty or thirty dollars a week, stands about as goo chanctt among them as a " cat iu h II without claws, n j I liu (a It' Vim t till 11 uiFPlI Oustlu n V"> Kaa* and barber, feels ax if he was legally entitled to ever dollar in a man'* pocket; and if a visiter is in waut c any article, either of necessity or luxury, out of onu c their shops, be in met with prices and treatment por fectly astonishing. The proprietors of the principal hotels and of (/'ou grees Springs, hare expended large sums of nurnvv ii order to decorate and render inviting their several lo calitles. l'er*on* or families devoted to pleasure, can bi as splendidly accommodated at Saratoga an at any placi in America, or even in Kurope, as I heard an honest (/'a nadian remark yesterday. The United State* Hotel li the largest and most fascinating establishment. It ii ar immense pile of buildings, fronting several hundred feel on Broadway and Main street, containing a park of Hom< Ave acres, most splendidly shaded with stately mapli trees, overshadowing its enchanting lawns, circular am oblong pathways and green velvet foliage. In the centr of this magnificent park, J udge Marvin has recentl; introduced a hydrant of water, from whose fountaii streams are daily conducted to sprinklo the smeotl walks and verdant beds of grassy voluptuousness, ('on nected with the main building, and extending west 01 the southerly line of the spacious park, and frontini inwardly is a range of buildings two stories high, divid ed so economically for the use of families, both abovi and below, that the apartments are entirely disconnect ed. These are occupied by the srmi-clile, such as mer chant princes, bankers, Sto., with their families. Ex tending further west, stand six or eight one story cotta ges. separated from each other by a space of some tei feet. These are furnished and decorated with singula: extravagance, and are reserved for the millionaires o New York, Philadelphia, New Orleans, ho. tec. Congress Hall and Union Hall have long been favora lily known, and are both enjoying their usual abundanci of rich and fashionable company. The former, being more retired, quiet and orderly, is chosen by the invalid millionaire, who thinks to grasp his geld a little longoi by breathing the salubrious air, and bathing in and drinking the medicinal waters of Saratoga Perhapf the portion of his fortune spent here, and distributed in a hundred different ways among servants, landlords liveries, ko. will ^e more judicious than if left t? assist voluptuous sons to untimely grave*. I have been informed, siace my arrival here, that II was anticipated early in the spring that an immeuse as s?mblage of politicians intended to congregate here, ai they always do periodically, in order to arrange and adjust matters preparatory to the coming presidentla election. The whigs, by common consent, very early however, abandoned the idea of holding their great nt tional caucus, as they supposed that they possessed ii (Jen. Taylor a candidate so popular that no effort of th< kind was necessary. The Southern democrats, upon re flection, declined assembling, so long as the Northeri "dough faces" adhered to Silas Wright and the famou Wilmot doctrines. Those of Georgia, and even Soutl i arouna, proponed 10 mem lueir Dretnren 01 me rxoru: nod concede the right to a northern candidate, in accor dance with the view* and wishes of Mr. Denton, provid ed Silas Wright wan dropped and l.evi Woodbury nub stituted. Thin proportion has neither been acceptri nor rejected, no reply having been given; and no th matter stand*. Neither party will have a legitlmat caucus at HaratcgatbU season. The Signal letter had rcaltered the predictions of po liticiann to the winds. 1 tind. even here in the North among men of substantial political faith and unwaver lug devotion to party, and in the Immediate resldenc of Milan Wright, that the prinoi plea inculcated in Tay lor's correspondence are sufficiently democratic: that i the friend* of Mr. Wright will not yield, and unite upoi Mr. Woodbury, then Taylor will be adopted and suu ported a* the candidate of the democracy, kroui th signs ol the times, indications of which are devi lope every day, it is now perfectly evldeut that the hero < the Mexican war, if he survive the content, will nuccee James K. I'olk at the White House. As 4 ii u. Taylor declares himself a no-party candidal* it may be well to consider a moment wiiat effect h election will iiave upon office holders aud office seeker If tke wliigs could have elected him us a whig, then li would have been bound in duly, an well as honor, to cai ry out whig measures and principles ?that 1*, rcmov tlie present office holders and appoint others. That I all that there is ol priuciple in all this presidential elec tiooeering business i)ut an he has made Ihe assertio (hat he recognixes no party, the whigs can have no hop of office. The democrats out of office, who are hangln liv the skirts of the party, are in no better pronpect ? obtaining office than the whign. Therefore, itia juit certaiu that all the obnoxious custom house officer postmiutern, Sco. ko appointed by Tyler aud I'olk, wil si ill lie retained, to the ureal discouragement of belte democrat*, and the annoyance uf disappointed whigs.

Its population by the last census was 4486, consisting chiefly of farmer*, fishermen and shipwrights; they are an honest and hardy race, much attached to the soil they occupy, and little given to emigration.
