^ The short stay at this port of the last British ste<,mer from Bermuda, caused mu :h annoyance to the commercial public, especially to tha' portion tuterrned or connected in business with the West India Possessions, South America, See. That vessel, (which was due here on the lltti) arrived at 10jk o'clock on tlie morning of the 13th met., and her mails closed at 2 P M. of the same day ; so that ii whh scarcely known ihit she was here belore she had k ft again. Such species of communication is worth very little to a commercial city like hiew York, slid is scaictiyot any service mi J r the pretent arrangement, uh twenty-four hours is the outside limit lor the R. W. I. steatnahips to remain here alter urriva', and if they bring freight it mutt be received in twelve hours, though the vessel never comes nearer to the city than elf the Buttery, accoidiiig to contract. Another disadvantage by this line, is the enormous retaliatory postage charged on letters and newspapers, which nearly amounts to a prohibition, except in very rgi nt cases,of corres|K)iideiitsavailing themselves ?I tins mode of communication. And l ist, tnougii ot trust, ib the very exliorbitant utnouut charged by the company tor a passage from this place to Bermuda, and vice vena, viz : ?10 sterling, nearly three tiims the turn usually charged hi good siifing vessels, which regularly trade to this port front Bermuda. Now, 1 am of opinion that it would be to the advantage of some of the capitalists here to start a mail steamer, say ubout 5 or fiOO tons, to ply between New York, Bermuda, Porto Rico and St. Thomas?leaving New York for Bermuilu, thence to Porto Rico and fcR. Thomas, and back by the same route?making Bermuda the first and last lace of arrival and departure from and to New York. Such an arrangement would pi ice <-nni lunication on a broad footing, independent of the West India steamers, as this line has two steamers each month at Bermuda, where they receive and deliver mails for all parts ol the world, hv which nails and passengers could be forwarded. Besides, another advantage would be gained by such steam communication, if the price of passage were made bout to and trom Bermuda, Porto Rico and St. Thomas. This low price would induce all who travel from Bermuda, icc , to tuke the steamer in prelerence to a Bailing vessel, (and a great many tone to this city every year from Bermuda,) and it would invite persons from this place to make a trip to Bermuda occasionally?the distance being very short?less than 700 miles?which is often peitormed by sailing vessels in four or five days? but a steamer would not average more than three days; and were such conveyance established, invalids and others, who frequently go to Havana, fcc., to escape the winter of America, would goto Bermuda in preference, which is several miles nearer. The climate of Bermuda is considered to be one of the best, if not the very best in the world ; and to persons affected with consumptive symptoms, there is no pluce equal to it. Frost, snow, or ice is quite unknown there; and so mild is the winter that it is more like the fall of northern climates than winter at all. kTtic scenery is very handsome, the houses are built of native sand stone, and gen erally white-washed, which gives (hem the appearance of blocks of ice, contrasted with the evergreen cedar, wiili which the island is covered. No stringer ever yet visited Bermuda, but has been delighted with its scenery and temperature. Much bh re might be said in favor of this delightful spot, situated in the middle of the Atlantic, nut this win suffice lor the present. I would add that a trip there would be sufficient to convince any one ot the correctness of these remarks. Should the enterprise of any of the citizens of this place, induce them to try the ex[>eriment of a steamer on the proposed route, I would turiher state, that it would be necessary, in order to carry out tne scheme successfully, for the accommodation of persons visiting Bermuda, either on pleasure, or in search of health, that a suitable notel should be erected then-, of sufficient size to accommodate from 50 to 100 persons, with such rooms as they may require. At present, there are two small hotels in Hamilton, the metropolis ; hut neither of these are at all calculated to afford such accommodation to strangers as they would require; in fact, they are little better than the eating houses of this ity. A very suitable place for the erection of a hotel, may be purchased in Hamilton, Bermuda, for about (15 ,000. This spot is about one acre of land, surrounded by water, where may he attached to the hotel, excellent bathing houses of sea water; it adioins the business pait of the city, and is the only place suitable for such purpose. It would be advisable, should this plan be adopted, that the hotel should be constructed and prepared in this, or some neighboring place, of wood, which might be tranenorted to Bermuda readv for erection' at a email cost, compared with the expense of building a house there of the nat ive stone. ADd there Bhould be some well-known American employed, or interested in the hotel, in order to ensure to travellers, who may-go thither, that they will find all the comtorts of a home. But, the first thing to be done, is to secure the place and erection of he hotel, for it would be useless to start a steamer, until that was fixed. Another advantage that would accrue to this city, by having a steamer running regularly to Bermuda, is, that the maikets here could be supplied with new potatoes, onions, peas, turnips, carrots, tec , and, in fact, with all kinds of vegetables, and many kinds of fruit, at least three months in advance ol any other market. And from Porto Rico and St. Thomas| large quantities of oranges and other fruits may be obtained in fine order, at seasons when they could not be had elsewhere. The writpr ol this sketch is enabled to testify to the validity of what he has advanced, from jiereonal knowledge, and he may at some future time allude to these subjects again. He hopes, however, that those who may read what is here advanced, will reflect on the subject, and give their views more ably and fully to the public. In the meantime, he would b" glad|to communicate, personally, any other information in his power, to those who may desire it. Religious Intelligence. Calendab. August 27?10th Sunday after Trinity.

Tht Arviy?the Generals?Scott anil Gaines?A Love Difficulty?Passjxirts?the Ti,ur of Irelantl. The uriny has not yet settled down into the peace establishment, and it will be some weeks before all the quivering fragments disappear. Anterior to the war with Mexico, General Gaines was the superior officer of Col. Z. Taylor, and hud charge of the Southern or western division. Now, General Taylor not only outranks General Gaines, but occupies the station. General Wool, having returned to the North, finds General Gaines in pos session of the Eastern division. It is not yet determined nt the War Department what shall be done with the surplus Generals, and how the respective commands ehull be arranged. It is known that Generals Scott and GuineB are at enmity. General Scott has no direct official intercourse with him, nor does he have any with General Scott. All orders relative to the army must come to and go Irom the "Head Quarters. 1 his rule it is irnjterative to observe ; hut General Games and General Scott transmit to and from one another under cover ol "the Secretary of War." This is a halt-way house, and the arrangement is jierlectly satisfactory to the two great soldiers concerned. Minor General is probable, will make Klizubethtown the " head <|UarterB." He does aot care about being in the saine building bene at Washington with Governor he and that gen tie t? un have not yet patched un the breach betwn n them ; nor is it kn< wn whether they have even seen each other since the General's return from Mexico. Certain it is, Scott did not immediately call upon the Secretary. A young gentleman, a few days ago, being enamoicdof a highly respectable young lady, mode her a present ot a ring, which she gladly accepted. He seemed to say, while holding her hand in his:? " Look, how this ring eneompasseth thy finger; Kven so thy breast enolo?eth my poor heart; Wear both of iht-m, for both ot them are thine, Anil If thy poor devoted servant may But beg one favor at thy gracious hand, Thou Uort confirm his liapptneHR forever." The father of the lady was indignant when he heard of the intimacy which existed between, and, obtaining possession of the ring, returned it to the donor, with a message that it he again found him utton his premises.he would "shoot him!" This alarmed the lover, and away he ran to a magistrate, almost frightened to death, and swore that his life was in danger from the aforesaid parent. Distinguished counsel were engaged, an investigation took place, and resulted in binding over the father to keep the pence. Tne cowardly " ringerin" is not woitky ol n wife?" none but the brave deserve the fair" Talking about love in Washington, an officer of the government, occupying a high place, severely whipped his daughter for an affair of the heart, which the poor thing could not help. Her cries alarmed the neighbors, and excited much commiseration in her behall.and contempt for the ineiciless lather. 1 have been informed that between three and five hundred passports have recently been prepared at the State Department, for per ons who are on the eve of returning to Knglnnd mid Ireland. One mnn had upwards of thirty of them in his possession lust night, for his friends They are to be sent, principally, o New York. A few of the discharged soldiers are going over the ocean, to take the lour of Ireland, for the benefit of their health ! Some ot our Irish citizens nre stowing away potatoes for the voyage. The British Consul need not be alarmed, us there is no evidence of bellicose intentions. Fkux. Baltimore, August 26, 1848.
