THE NEW YORK HERALD. WHOLE NO. 6784. MORNING EDITION-SATURDAY, MARCH 24, 1855. PRICE TWO CENTS. IMPROVEMENTS III THE CITT. V nilwll Garden? Ita Rise and Foil-New Buildings on Its Site. Workman irt now busily employed in tawing down Vauxhall Gardes ? It* history ti ended. rerhapa there ia no one plaee in the city of New York that ia better known to Its inhabitant!, or tbat baa bad a longir or more varied history, than Vauxhall Garden. It datea back to tbe Knickerbocker*, before the Van Twillira and Stuyvesanta bad pasted off the stage, and eomei with ita changing fortune* down to the present time. The ground upon which Vanxhall Garden waa originally eitabliahed waa purcbaaed of one of the old aeitlera of the Netherlands by Jacob H perry, a florist, who emigrated to thia country in the year 1748, from Switzerland. The site then covered an area, extending three hundred feet on the Bowery, and tbe Name on Broadway, across from (treat to street. Mr. Sperry used thia property for the cultivation o flowers and hot houee p ante, which, in ita day, became celebrated. Thonaanda, who now live, remember the time when S? perry's garden waa the great reiort of bellea and beaux for the purchaae of their bouquets. Thia garden was, at this time, a leng walk out of town, the city, in 1T48, only containing some twelve thousand In habitants, and not built up beyond wheia the City Hall now stands. Such was the profit of this garden to Mr. Sperry that, in 1800, he was satisfied to retire from business, and bis grounds were at once put into the market. Thia waa the time when John Jacob Astor waa largely inveating in real estate, who, in 1803, purchased of Mr. Sperry his entire garden for tbe sum of ?9,000 sterling. At the time tbil property came into Mr. Astor's hands, an enterprising Frenchman, named Delacroix, obtained a twenty-one years lease upon the premise*, and at once ehristened the place Vauxhall Garden. Delacroix turned it into an ice cream caloon, and soon, under bia management, it grew into favor as a popular and fashionable resort. The trees, planted by the banda of Mr. Sperry, shaded its walks, and the flowers of hla cultivation sent to ita farthest limits their sweet and refreshing odors. A plain board fence surrounded the place, and on both Broadway and the Bowery were plaoea of entrance and exit. Monsieur Delacroix turned the broad end of the green house erected by Mr. Sperry towards the Bowery, and converted it into a drinking aaloon. Small boxes, or rather alcoves, were ranged round the entire garden, where interesting little parties were permitted to congregate by themselves, and In quiet enjoy their juleps, coblers, cream and jokea. Thia waa, ia the first years of the present century, more fashionable than Hoboken or Taylor's, at the present day. It waa tbe resort of the faahionable ? the young and old It bad no rival, no equal. The love sick swain, all eagemese to pleaae bis duleinea, in a dashing ride to Vauxhall, bad every opportunity to ply his arts for maid en's favor. Beneath the foliage of the garden, or re tired within its alcoves, the more bold grew eloquent upon the one all absorbing theme, while the more timid gradually approached a mutual confidence and under standing through the insinuating reading of tbe flowers that grew plentifully around. How many couples that ?till live remember Vauxhall Garden as the place where their first vows were made! It was an ordinary sight, of a summer's afternoon, to sue standing around Vauxhall for a mile distant, a solid phalanx of taddled steeds, carriages and baggies, with an urchin holding each rein uniiously waiting for his two shillings fee, when the owner of the '< turnout " ahould return Irom bia (easting within the garden. An evening at the garden was even more pleasant than dur ing the day. Along the walks were hung variegated lights, formed into stars, rerpents, suns and systems, hanging from tree tops and illuminating rose bushes, swinging amid lilac'* and the rose of sharon. On festi val days, to all these attractions of the garden were a4ded displays of fireworks, the only place of a similar exhibition in tbe city. fh? great day of tbe garden was eri the 4th of July. From morning till night Vauxhall was crowded on the 4th, at a charge of twenty-llv cents admiselon. We learn from an old gentleman wh acted occasionally iih one of tbe clerks for Mr. Delacroix that on a fourth of July evening, the receipts of th< plaoe were about $8,000, for many successive anniver tariet. lhe garden was capatln of holllog from flftee to twenty thousand people, and this number ofti'n as gambled within it* entrances. This wn Vauxhall gar den in ita first days. The city about Vauxhall at this period wa* unbuilt. ?Open fields stretched away to the river on either side. The city lay away oil to ware's the Bitiery. Tnis was em phatically among the hoys "up town," who waged a desperate war against tbe ''down-towoer?." Whenever the down town boys came up to g?t a plate of Dela ciolx CTetm, they were fortunate if the "up-towner*" did not send them home with a bruised head. Over upon what was called in tnese days "jailor's flnug Har bor Hill," which is now the corner of Broadway and Tenth street, the Vauxhall er up to *n boys erected their juvenile fortifications, an), provided with a large sup S'y of ston?s and slings, they awaited the oa s?'t of the own town phalanx. The strife here upon this bill would last sometime* from morning till night, and many on Both sides would retire from tbe field with black ejes and aching limbs. Both parties were in theie day* regularly organiied wl'.h their chieftains, colonels, captains, and lieutenant*, and carried on their battles with all tbe rules and regulations of regular warfare. Hundreds who read this will recollect the battle cry of the "up towneri" when the fight opened ? The white cockade and the peacock f>-ather; The np town boys will light forever; While tbe down town boys are in tfcelr pen, Sneaking out and meaking '?? There were no policemen in tboie primitive dayi to interrupt the tellfgerenta, an] their flghte were open, bold and blooly. Thin whs the condition of the city aroutd Vauxhall Garten in Us ttrat dar*. Delecroix made a fortune, and retired from the Garden in the year 18I9, before hia lease expired, lie wai suc ceeded by bia aon, but when tbe father left, tht prestige of hit name waa gone, and the Garden went into ita de cline. The aon was succeeded by tlie ton in law of Monaieur Delacroix, in 182ft, who waa also un?ucce?*ful. lie could male no monty, as his father in law bad The city by this time bad become more populated, and rival establishment* had Marled down town. Vauxball liad pawed lta palmy day*. The son in law poineiaed the place only a few yean, and in 1830, or about that time, it paaaed into the hands of Joseph Hoot. Within a few y?ar? before thia time, Mr. Pelacroii'n lraie had been renewed for twenty one years moie, and Lafayette place had b??n cut through parallel with Broadway and the Eoweiy. reducing the Garden to just bilf ita original siz^ Mr. Hunt continued the Garden in tbe same busi n tm carried on by M. Delacroix, but the attempt ta make it pay failed. It aaa now the reeort of a different claai from that whioh built it up. Tbe fashionable* had de serted it, and the democracy of society took it altogether to tliemielvea. To give it Fhew attraction anil an addi tional interest, a building was erected on one aide, (the same which haa been uaed in after yearn a* i stable and riding school) for a circus company from England In the year 1832 and '38, Cook k Co., trim England, came with a oompany of circus actors, but liia clowns, hi* dancing horses, and hit ground and lofty tumblers, could not call back again the former glory of Vauxhall. Tbe circus failed after a two years' trial, and merged into Tarlooa other companies strolling al<out tbs coun try. While la the poaseasir.n of Mr. Hunt, hia saloon burned down, and in the Ore periahed tbe aged mother in-law of Mr. Hunt. Upon the site of the old saloon, tbe ?aai building originally put up by Mr. 8 perry a* a Ereen bouse, Mr. Hunt erected a brick building, which as come down to the present time. It waa during tbe time of Hunt, or about lSU), ibat Gilley, a French man, made from Vanxball his balloon ascension, the first ascension of a balloon in Ameridh. This ascent la sill a day of dating from amoug tbe old residents of this section of the city. It wai a warm summer's day, ? nd Vauxhall waa crowded with eighteen thousand peo ple. What a contrast bet reen tbe appearance of such a company that day, and such a gathering to-day' Tne variations in faahions. dm* and general appearance' What a change, too, In tbe attraction* of a balloon as ?wnaioo, among the inba >itants of New York, between that >la? aad thia!

The account pubhahed in yesterday's Herald of tho head quarters of the British army in the United Siatee, produced no little excitement, and during the day the place in question was visited by crowds of curious people, who were desirous of seeing and learning aU they could about this singular establishment. We understand that the authorities have already taken action in this matter, and Mr. John McKeon, the United States District Attor ney, has aent on to the Cabinet In Waahington, to know what ate pa it is adviaable for him to take, In fru at rating the efforts of the English government to raise recruits for tbeir army in the Cilmea.

On arriving at the place designated, No 38 Pearl street, hef jund it to be an old ahd di'apldated building, apparently a tenant houae, sadly out of repair. There waa no announcement cutaide that this was the great ahlpping agency, by which the English government sent resruita to the Crimea, but on entering the hall door to the right might be aeen a door and on It a P?P?i with tfle name of Angus McDonald written in ink. The inside of the room was anything but inviting? there was no Are, and, as the window panes were broken in several places the air blew in raw and cold. The walls were roush'and the floor dirty; laceed. the whole concern had a moat uncomfortable and cheerleaa aapect. The furniture consisted of a pine table and four wooden chuira. On t ntering the room, tho Reporter found a young man walking around the apartment I riskly, and blowing on his linger* to keep them warm.

William Kissene, recently con rioted of forgery in the third degree, m brought up this morn ing for lentence. On being naked by the Clerk what he bad to aay why judgment abould not be pronounced against him according to law, the prisoner addressed the Court ax (ollowa : ? Hit it I'uukfix tux Court ? I ahal avail mjnelf of tin opportunity now clfered, (it being the laat I shall possl biy ever have,) to make a few remark*; and I wiah it distinctly understood that what I am about to aay is in no way whatever Intended by me as suing for mercy; on the contrary, I fe?l that I deserve any psnalty which thl Court may oeem proper 10 inilict. My Ufa, air, aa noma of the public prmte have aet forth, haa not been one con tinued succession of crime. Two years ago I was living with my family in Ohio, in pence, contentment and hap piness, known and respected by a large circle of ao<iu?in tances and friends, without one blot? one stain upon my name liut in an evil hour there came about my dwelling those who had blighted and blasted many a home before. 1 shall not enter into details of the wretch edness and desolation they have brought about me and mite, and which, air, have been tbe means of bringing me before jou this day, also, of sending my family pen niless, houseless and homeleaa, wanderers on the face of the eirtb, ashamed of the very name they bear? a name handed to me without a blemiah, aa untarnished aa the driven snow! May God forgive them? I never, never can! Aed yet, sir, it was my own fault. Kndowed with all the leelingn and senses of manhood, I abould have known that to have been breathed upon by them waa death; that tue verj atmosphere which surrounded them was poisonous as that which surrounds the upas tree. I abould have indignantly spurned them from me. as you would, sir, tho most loathaome reptile that crawls upon the face of the earth, lied I paused; had 1 pondered, I had not been bore. 1 must havo been in a dream, a sort of spell, when 1 permitted the ignui fatuui to lead me to destruction , and though I stand here charged with and convicted of irime, yet my heart tell* me, aud 1 feel and know it to be true, that I have no sympathy with it: that 1 have no fallow feeling or emotion in common with its perpetratois. Had I paused, had I pondered, vou sir, would have been spared the disagreeable duty which devolves u pon you this day ; and I can fancy no duly which is more irktometo an enlighented and humane Judge than that of ctnt igning a fellow creature to a living tomb. But the edicts ol the law must be tul&Ued. The consequences must fall on those who come, antagonistic to it; and cheerfully, gliidly . yes joyfully, would I go bene#, to wherever It may please you to consign me, did 1 but teel that 1 might yet live to retuin? regenerated, untarnish ed. That I could onca more take that pro ad station amongst family and friends which I then held. But alas! air, this cannot te, and tbe overwhelming con sciousness ot It millets more wretchedness anl miserv upon me, tlmn any penalty which the law can inilict. There is no escape from ona's feelings excepting through the porta la of the grave. 1 Could escape from the rail road cars at the risk of my lite, aa haa been gtvenin testimony, aud 1 could lay oui in the wild wood* night alter night, with no covering but the canopy of heaven, but there was one ever watchful compan'on could not avoid ? it was the constant prompting of the heart. W hat have jou been, what infamy and disgrace have you entailed on yourself? 1 could hear it in the leaves that rurftlad ovei my head. I could hear It In every sound that was borne upon the breeze. The whole world may forgive me, but I cannot forgive myself. I , bad hoped, sir, to have reached tome distant country uninown, wher? those who had known me could know I me no more- ? here 1 could have settled down among strangers, and once more have been a man among m?n. The ever present memory of the past, would have been a bright light to guide me In th? path of rectitude In all the future, and would have lliumlned the rock upon which I was cai-t away, l'rovidence lia- otherwise de crees, and 1 am here, but were 1 permitted to depart i this day, and whenever it shall please the powers that be, to permit me to depart, such shall be my course I | tru?-t a wiser and a better man. The Recorder then addressed the prisoner in the fol- j lowing t?rms: ? You have had a fair and full trial, and notwlthstand- ! ing the great xeal and abili y with which your counsel ha" defended vou you have leen convicted of an of- ) fence, tbe punishment for which must be confinement ( in the Mate prison. If there is one duty more painful than another, it is that of sentencing to such a penalty, 1 a peraon wbo has been accustomed to move in enllgtit ; ened circles of society There can be no act more pain lul tban that ol being compelled to blignt the prospects of a man with talents like jours. .Such talents, lu.teml of a corse, should be a basing, not only to the poeaes -or himse'.f, but to his friends; and an IntalUct like vcurs it voted to healthy pursuits, would have besn a bright and shining light instead of the wr?ck it now pre sents. To me this duty is painful Indeed, and I Hop* never to see such a spectacle again. Your early oourse in li'e was one or Industry and Integrity; but, since then your name haa become somewhat historical, but ?hat' historic ?1 reminiscence has been connected with crime, imd this witnin the space of two years. 1 wel remember that when the first accunation was brought aaain't vou, tte public, with one accord, would not believe that a man holding your position? that of a respectable and reputable merchant could be guilty of the olTence with which you were charged, lour own statements shew, at any rate, that >< u ?? re connected with crime, but at the sam? time tl ey breathe repentacce of the pa?t, and, consequently, hopes tor the luture Vou are yet youog-younB ei ough to redeem jour character* hen jou are released from pri on. I had intended to sentence jou for the loosest term that the law allows, but I have changed my views in this n spect In what you have stated tfcere wa- no bravado, such as Is often displayed by men brought up here for sentence. No person, unless be possessed some remnant of virtue, eouhl be capable o. making such remarks as yon have juat addressed to the court. If I err in mitigating your punishment, I have at least the sati-faction ol kuowing that I < rr on the side of mercy. The sentence of this court is that you be , confined in the Mate prison for the terra of two years and six mi.nths. 8KINSINO A MAN IM ?HOAI? DAT I.IOHT? TUB PIOHT IN* MRS AH AIM.

Mr. John Bullock appeared before the committee and stated that the above ordinance waa pa*?ed in 1880, when the buaineaa of tranaplanting oya tera waa hardly known, aince then It haa (town to be of great importance, and over a million dollara worth of oyatera, all of them transplant ed, are now aold in the eity during the aummer month* Heretofore the erdlntnee ha? been a dead letter, no re sard whatever belDg paid to It, but now Mayor Wood haa signified hia inUn'ion of enforcing the law, be the c?n aeij uencea what they may. Thia determination on the part of bia Honor, haa produced quite a panic among ihe oyateimen, and tbey are fearful of engaging In the transplanting of ojat. r* to our water*. aa they might aufler great pecuniary loaa tlnreby, and boata are uow ljing idle that would otherwiae be engaged in the trade.
