Upon entering toe magniflcent gronads of Monsieur La Ciwu, ?te is struck with the greet besuty of the plsee that looks more like some fairy giotto Uisb the homo of mortal. In the centre of ? perk of some t rsniy sores stands (he mansion el La Chauas, surrounded by a flower gardes blooming with almost overy flower that P'era his given to mortals. Upon approaching the housa, that by degrees loomed np bom among the thick foliage, toe eye reeled upon thousands of variegated lights that earns peepiag through the thiek bwqusl, wktle music from a well trained band added to the enchanting scene.

Btbacusb, June 15, 1865. Something About t\t City of Syracuse?TV it Know Nothings in tk? State? What tht People Think of George Law? What of Seward? What of Fer nando Wood ? Description of the Salt Works qf iSyracuse, 4*c. I have been no ? more than one week in this city of conventions? this renowned centre of "isms"? and hare aa yet sosa bat little occasion to find fault with the pia e, for I have beea no.it cordially re ceived and hospitably cam! for. I bad, as I supposed, beome permanently settled at my hotel, when moet unexpectedly I found my baggage transferred to the honsa of a prominent merchant, and, as a ma'.tor of coarse, I followed my bsggsge and transferred myself to the same place. Syracuse numbers from thirty to thirty-flve tbru aand inhabitable; thirty years ago there was hardly more than a store, a meeting honsa and a black smith's shop. Young America says that this is vary fair for sn Inland town. The character of the people of this place has bsea greatly misrepresented abroad. Bring a central town, most cf the 8'.ate conventions are held here; and whatever the action of the '.'onventim may be, the town must bear the blame; wbatsvar tbe com plexion of the gethtrlng may be, the character of the people bscomea tinged with it. If a woman's rights convention meets here, the world ssys that Syracuse is going en masse toe wo man's lights, or, in other words, is going crazy. If en abolition or disunion convention is held here, tbe residents are ferthwito denounced a* dLuu'oaisis. If the spiritualis's gather ia numbers be e, im mtdiately it is r?port?d that all Syracuse is going mad with that fanaticism. From reports, I h? da' most expedite i to toe the women weiring p*n'?i->cc*, every mm attended by a ghost, every house bauatei, everybody op pesed to the constitution of tbe Unicoi States, miet cf tbe children of a mixed comp'exion ind very nu iotrou>. I Hud, however, toat there are a fe * wo men who do not wear pants a few mm who are no: constantly attended by ghosts, a few houses that are not blunted, a lee tables that stand stdi, ex ctpt when moved by visible agencies; a few msn who are in favor of tbe constitution of tie United 8'atei, and r few children tbat are white. Syiacnse is not quito such a hotbed of so :fa! and political evils as has been g in orally represented Pablto sentiment is as healthy here w in any other town in the State. I do cot say that tbe place is perfectly free of these evil*, but I do say tnry are not peculiar to tbe place. Tbe onrront of popular tenement sets strongly against tbe insti ulon of slavery; yet there is no general wish to iaceifere w.t'ait in the States where it ia firmly established; but there la a very strong opposition to the farther extension of slave terri tory. Tbe fiiecda of the Blave interests are more nume rous than I had been led to exosct. I have heard apologies for the Kansas affair, andtbrir jattiii na tion attempted. Tbe American party here, I understand, is quite a uiit. and much stronger taan at the last elec tion. A deep undercurrent of American feeling is very perceptible. This I flad to bo the ca?e every where throughout tbe State; bat it is not strong enough to induce all who profess to bo lufloenoed by it to support tbe party, if they do not like the mas. George Law takes very w?U here, and I have no doubt be will improve upon acpiatataa e. There is, very quietly aod i^sidaonaly, an influ ence at work in the councils of the Order .under :be snspioes of the 8e vardit a, which, tiniest gaardai against with much shrewdness sad skil, wui pro duce disseDsions at tbe next elections, and thereby ensure the defeat of tbe Order. Thia is tbe intention; time will to'J how success ful ttai gsme is. I doubt much whether iifieon thousand votes can be diverted by this sgeac/ from tbe national A me; i **n party in this State. I, however, anaoipate a failing off of about that num ber I fiod that to ere Is a very quiet set ti ng of popu lar opinion towards Fernando Wood for tbe next Governor of toe State of New York. H>.s prom-it nesa to assume naoonsieilitiea others never dared to take, baa stormed the ramparts of popnl.tr fsvor and -anted them. The question now is, how long can he sustain him self in that position'!' I have fjuad among tbe former friends of Seward, among abolitionists of the strongest prejudices, those who refuse to support blm any longer, on ac count of bis coarse upon the school question. They now donbt hia sincerity as a ftse toller, be having proved recreant to the rducatkmal interests of ths etato, which are regarded as the bulwark of all our .-opu'.sr tostttntlon*. The salt works courJtnto the prominent and leading interests at Syracuse. I have known bat little abeut them, and waa surprised to loaru of their extort. PresofTiagadeacr-ptloa of them maybe of interest to your nhdert, I have taken some puns to acquaint myself with the details of tbalr manage ment. On my calling upon Mr. N. W. Bm-ti, tbe suoer intesdent.be very kindly gave me all ths lnforma tion I wanted, and taking me into his carriage drove through tbe ground*, giving me a minute explana tion of the management and of the works. Tueie woiks are a perfect gold mine to the peopie of Syracuse. They bring into the plice an income of about one million eight hundred thooaaad doHarw. D.rsaUy and indirectly, they employ over four thoosan 1 men. There are I required for packing tbe salt twelve hundred tboa i sand barrels,each of which srill bold five bushels. Tbe price of these barrels varies f.om twenty-five to thirty tone cento each, mest of waich are made in Oswego county. There are three kind# of salt manufactured?tbe coarse, the flue, tbe very floe er ground salt. Tae coarse salt is manufactured la what ara ct'lei vats, sad is produced by expodng tbe brim to the sun; no a fair day tbe evaooratioa fa very rapid. Tuess I vats have rack asutfaoe of J88 square feet, and a depth nf perhaps nine inches; there are ab mt four teen thousand of them, covering mors than two hundred acres. Each vat is protected by a cover, which is plaeed npia rollers. These covers are moved aside in o'rar weather, and plaeed btok again upon any indication of rata. Although very heavy, they ara eaaily moved; a boy of ordinary ?r rength ran mows taem. The brtae is first drawn from tho reservoir into what are called reception rooms, whiob are nothing more than vats, srith a depth of somo feorteeo 'aches, placed upon higher gonad than tbe real of the rata.

There ate twelve wells now in ate, varying from ei?oty to three hundred and thirty feet in depth. t)ne of tour hui died and fourteen feet will aooo be brought into uae. Two of tbeee wells are annk in the mke, liity feet below the bid of the lake and eighty below the surface of the water. There are over thirty milet of aqoedaet logs fur tbe convoying of tbe brine to tbe different es'nhlMhmmts. One hundred and thirty thouaand oorda of wood are used during tbe year, costing about four hundred th ra ised dollars. y Tbe salt reason lasts from the fl'st of May to tbe laat of November. Tbe average amount of salt produced by each manufacturer is twenty thousand bus'els, making a business for each of abent five thousand dollars. Toe wells are nothing more than tubes, whioh are sunk down until the salt rrgfoiB are fcond, aod then there are found no springs or streams of aalt water, but the brine oozss from every side of the large cavity which Is dog oat at the foot of each tube. The grounds upon whi h the salt water it fount belong to the State, and the SUt* supplies this water to toe mauufo turer at one cent for 6 very bushel manufactured. Tr e estimate for this year is over sin m'flio-s of bushels. Bat ss tbe dinner bell is ringing, and my inner man inclineth to tt>e acceptance of its invitation, verily I must leave the salt works and go to dinner. Nokval. Oar Dobbe* Ferry Correspondence.

Aside f.om toe ch?rn? of scenery, which are by so means inconsiderable, it is a matter of su-prise to us that this little vilage, so rich in revolutionary interest, should have attraoied so alight an atten tion from our local historians. Altbongb, in corn men with the adjacent localities, it has been the theatre of many a deed of reokUss daring, aid the scene of many a depredation by the "Skinners" c d "Cowboys," it has hardly maimed the honor o' a passing note. It was here, although it may not he generally known, that Arnold appiinted a ooafer enee with Andre, in the event of a successful issue to his journey, whish providentially resultod in his capture. Here, also, if tradition speaks aright, a< grand Indian oounoil of the principal north ern tribes was held to devise ways and msanr for the extermination of thewhl'es. Bat let toe reuembranoe of tteir atrocities, excusable, psr baps in a measure, be burled along with thsir oa u "^nw wg.^ptrhaps, the most daring of the re. volutknta'j spirits to whom this regi<m gave blrto, was L'entenant (arterwa di Colonel) j to idell. This offloer's toorougn ktowisdse of the ocontry was often called in requisition by Washington himself. Daring the greater part ot the war he was one of the volunteer guides for the oooi ty of Westchester. Bot the claims ol these men upon the gratitude of their country tor their signal services failed to reach toe ear of Con gress, and like too many of their compatriots, they were doomed to a republic's neglect. From among a budget of anecdotes at our command, we shall select only one or two, as being the least likely to engross the columns of your valoab.e paper to an unseemly extent, and as illustrative of h.s mauy "lairbreadth 'Bcapes." While courting the maiden who subsequently bs came bis wife, at Iti father's reeidsaoe, which occupied neutral ground, and was too resort or leading men of botn parties, be had barely time to anticipate a surprise by toe British, by ex ending himself upon a single plank laid across the raf^s of the budding. Tne soldiers entered and demanded to tear h the fconse, io suite ot the reaK>artr?noes of toe fair one, compelling her to lead the way. Bat by skillfully msEoeovring with the Hghtinhn- haud, so that its ray a tell uoon no one object lor any length of time, she succeeded in baffling their designs for the toEos. Bnt upon their descent, one of toe Lumber more suspicious than the rest, struck this vtry plank wito his bayonet, which caused a dull, muffled sound?a farther searoU wes then reidered necessary, bat our hero, by cautiously crawling along too plank, so as to txpoeo no portion ot Wi peroou < r clot blag, mpmsed to reach * ?ort of endowed nook, wluon bad previously claimed so great a ?ba e of chew attention, that it now proved his salvation. 1 might relate the particulars of his attempt to capture Co). Delancey at his own quarters, but he, with a few ot bis folio vers, after having passed tbo guard, found his intended prize absent at a newb boring o-.ck fight. Ot course they were foroed to brat a baity retreat by fighting through toe lines, joining their coadjutors without, and firing upon their pursuers at different stages of their flight. This Colonel Odell left a daughter, wuo became the wife of Oapt. Bishop Underbill. She met with a melancholy end, in tot seventy second year of her age, by beiig thrown from a wagon on ber return f.'m a visit to tome relations. This occurred some where about toe latter part of last month. Inherit leg many of the notne traits of her Uturtrioos sire, she endeared hewelf to a large circle of friend*, and was noted alike for a generous hospitality and un stinted benevolence. Her retentive memiry en abled her to recount many an incident, as aeard from the lips of Colonels Van Cartlendt. P?U, Oor nehus Oakley, Major Thomas, Dr. Graham and others, who acted prominent parts in toe war. Thus, link after link binding ns to tae romantl1 ? Stst, keeps ever breaking, and we were, indeed, rtnnate, like her, to leave a nnnrs of so god re port and auch "troops of friends" to keen our memories ever green. UsnnadZ.

I thirk the memory of onr oldest inhabitant dose net ion back to the time when the big and little politicians of our little State were in such uneasy p na ture a as at j ost this mo merit. I speak a literal truth when I say that nobody knows what is to be, during toe present week. No pr >gramme of performances has been fixed upon, and seemiagly, none can bs, to-night,when too party?for we have got but one meets in caucus at Newport to arrange affairs for the session. A few sheriffiand decks of courts, that are to be, are already pointed out, but the more Impor tant offices are In a state of glorious uncertainty. Judges of the Supreme Court are to be ehosen; but will the present incumbents, wno are American ?ocughin heart, but who do not belong to "the petty," be re elected? I would answer that they would not be, if I could tee men of the law who were as well, or half as well qualified, and who could put forward better claims upos the "O.dsr.' Bat the fact is, thsy have got but Tew lawyers In side, and these, with the exeeptlon if the Attorney General, are men of small dimensions. They -?-e too well aware of their itsignifl laioe to aspire to the Supreme bench. I think, therefore, that no changes will be made; but how the matter is to be got over, is more than I do think. The sutojejt is creating a deal ot toonght aud talk, not only among legal men, but with politicians of all grades and colon. The whigt generally counsel the re election of the present incumbents, but the democrats nrge a clean sweep?seme of tbem in the hope of gattlng a dtmoc,at or two upon the bsneh, and other* with the pnrpose oi having the Know No things make themselves appear ridiculous, pros iri pure and incompetent, it may be proper to rem ark tout all the present Judges are wbigs. Another mat er of smaller importance Is creatteg a deal of anxiety amongit another class of people. It has been onr practice, heretofore, to appoint an almost innumerable number of Justices of ths Petes , from all parties. The office is deemed aeortof small Miange. wito whioh to ?inolilhte people who aspire to larger ones.

It is not strange that one who has passed a qua ! terof a century among the rigid forms of Eastern conservatives, where the habits of society are as old as society itself, and the mquiremsnts that enter into it bavo been transmitted as "heir looms," should bo aroused, as he tor the first tiateentciaan enter prising Western city. He is atnrtled at results tha* date back their inception not beyond his o vm memory, and unwillingly recognizes as leaders those npon wiom he has been taught to look as merely charged with the execution of the projeo tiens of older heads. He at once notes the absence of the "solid men" who he has been a customed to asso elate with the inception and sustaining o. every great enterprise, and finds all the interest! of the rapiBy developing resources of the "Great W<at,'' graiualiy txpssding in the hands of energetic young man. It ia this feature that natarally impresses all young men so favcrab j, and it is no wonder they continue to emigrate in such numbers from their old homes in tbe East, and that in nearly ev?ry town and school district, in almost all the Western Siates, thi eors of New York and New Eogland maybe found, fixing njion the opening lifcteof the new ootyitry toe imprets of their enlightened extraction; and ?mid all (he exsitemcnts scd abior oing interests of thel* new condition, they are not unmlndfal of the higher claims imposed upon them, as ths repre sentatives of ancestors who, amid ail tbe severities and rigor of their own early experience, were nevtr found forgetful of the superior claims of the hea. t aid tbe bead. With no class of the pioneers of tee West does this sentiment of ljyaliy obtain as with the descendants of a race of men whose ex amp.ee will never cease to exist and act in the live of their represer tatlves so long as the inflames of New Eugland institutions shell continue to be felt. In iearly every Urge city and vilUge "New EaglanJ Societies" are formed and forming, having their annual festivals, and mare frequent less formal gath erings; and we may well bope that through the ef fcrts oi the sons of the Puritans, ta thay so liter over the surface of the "Great West," fresh -from the associations they have themselves contributed in foiming, and imbued with the noble and gene rous spirit of their inherited chancier, the same sentiments may be diffaed that have given excM lerce and position to the land of their birth. With no one of the Western cities have I been so favorably impressed as with this; for while it pes femes to a wonderful extent all the elements of a uniform and rapid growth, there are noticeable in it few of the objectionable features of many of its sister places, and is so far in advance of teem in its developement aa to render it more secure in ita busi fefss rslati :ns, and so well defined in its social con dition at to mako it a desirable place for residence. Having passed through those difficult successive steps incicent to the rapid growth of nsw places, that Invest property with an uonatural and unsta ble, and oftentimes hazardous temporary value it has reached such a point in its maturity wuere in vestments msy be with safety made, and the fu'ure securely counted upon. In this respect it is superi or to Chicago and other places that have had a mv-e fapid, tnough less safe advancement, and equal to any of our Eastern places. Detroit dates back for its aetf em'at, long before any of its western neighbors, nearly contemporane ously with Pcilideiphia, and in it? early hint ory is full of interest. Alternately the scene of severs 'J?'? atruggles, and the honest and persevering efforts of a hardy and Industrious race of Fr? nch ?eitiers, it stood, for a l:ng time, if not at the head, ernspr uous in that Urge far trade of the upper laces, that has, until quite recently, been carried on so extensively, and wnich forniihed to those en giged in it sncto large leturcs; and to this source may, to a very great extent, be attributed the pie rent wealth of the plsee. A few who were in coa section with eastern capitalists, identified with this interest, now remain, and in their bands is held at this time s very large p.oportkn of the landed property of Detroit. The progress of the place till 1831, was, aa was the case with most of the West ern towns, very slow, when property suddenly be Snto be acquired by eestern capitalists, and by em a rapid increase of value given to it, and a new life it fused into all the different departments of trade, until the crash of 1836 (whlci spread so like wildfire throughout the whole country,and whic 1 was peculiarly disastrous to Detroi:,) forced the pur chasers to allow it to revert beck into the hank of tee old proprietors, who, not at all satified with thu flnt experiment, have ever since manifested as irons disinclination to a second traffic, in oonssqaence of which a large portion of the best part of the city is at this time in the control of old French settlers either entirely unoccupied, or leased for a Ions teimof years, and to thu ctrcnmstance miy assigned the absence of that rapid growth which has cha raster zt-d the dfevtsiopemeut of some of the other Wretern cities. The portion of Detroit on the left bank of one of tbs rent, beautiful rtve?s in the West, suffioientlv ?Uvated to overlook it, and commanding an exieo aive view of the Canada side, and the 'ooanCj Z , hit d sMig down towards the river, U certainly very attractive, whi^ the broad arenas, running the entire length of the city, and extending al ?ng o? the ridge of thu elevation, and ths equally weU laid rut streets at right angles- this (Jefferson ave r'nvlvi7iv towweirdeflned and ample pro rirtioui exhibit tbe supsrior teste and judgment displayed in re urlxg symmetrical and liberal proportions for its Sx?2f! .??la Jefferson aveane is oonceded to be the finest street on thu continent, and by manv i" said to compare favorably with any in the wori/ ?? ffiraaHi uniformity and proportions are con rened.
