J Matters at Neva* ink ? T,legtaphs a', the Hotels The Eurrptan Ntws?Hotort w Sent to the City ?An Emperor at Handy Hook, $?<:., fyc. Yonr notice of this plaoe baa already hai same ?Beet; several who bid not thought, or bvely know, ?f the place c eclare themes Ive a much attrac vei by tie flattering, though oorrect and impartial diicription I bad the plea rare of contributing. Of the nu share who have visited here, not one, I venture to sty, but will coincide with ms respecting tha supjrlv ttw merits in natural attractions, of this locality. The proprietors of the two principal hotels? the BeaVisw and Thompson's? have made arrange menta With the telegraph to hivs regular daily b llletln re ports of whatever of importance may transpire within telegraphic range, which mut aid to tha interest ?f the houses , and betrays a commendable spirit of Mberality on the part of the proprietors, besides being a great indnoement to merchants coming nere> who are uneasy when away from the city, unless they are kept well posted up respecting tie markets aed news of general interest The ne ws by the last atcamor(arago) was known here as soon as it was published in the city. Thus, though of no p witive walne, it is a matter of some satisfaction to k tow that, though 8' mewbat obscured, we are not entire fl- lost sight of. Speaking of the telegraph reminds me of some interesting particulars concerning it , and of wtu h most of your readers are doubtless sputa ignorant. almost ?-vny one knows that the news by the steamers reaches t ?e city and is publish*! long be fore tbe steamer itself reticles Hi dock, but now and where it is done very few are aware, as no; ?ore than one in ten are acqnaln'.ad wit 1 the geo graphy of these regions. I will particularize a little. Handy Hook is a ling, narrow, irregular sttip of mndy land, extending out from a little east or tin Highlands, on a line with tbe Narrows, with t ie ocean on one side, and the Bstre vsbary river on tin other, and forms the line of separa'.iou between the bay and ocean. In passing the Narrows, Vdste Is bear direc'ly upon the Sandy Hook point, six miles tran the Highlands ? a rather barren ptaca, tn >ugi there are aoundanoe of cedars. Tnis ft owned oy tbe government, and is tbe place spoken of as approorlate for a <iuarantine Dos pit u. The only residents are tbe lighthouse kei-pars, and the tele graph operator on tbe ex '.re me no:nt, who it widely known as "Emperor Faotoa," and wno rules lbs destinies of his little do m tin wltiaqulet dignity ?eally c arming to behold. Any poor mariier no may chacce to be shipwrecked on his oast, wests here with a hearty welcnne, g wj chew, ocenies tbe Emperor's baa, while be (the Emseror) tekss, the floor; and on parting, has his tmney refosed with an apology for not bei"g able to do batter by bim. In the uoper part of the E nperor's mausioa ie a good sized room, devoted to t!ie use of fifty car rier pigeons, woich are trained *or the purpose of con veying sews from the aieauitiips to tie shire. This part of the business devolves up on %Cr. Jams Ferrell, whcse modesty and z?alous energy nave earned him an enviab e reputation. In fa::, there ia hardly a shipping merchant in the city bnt can ?peak a good word for Jimmy Parrel'; ths ex'.raor Ointry aid unparalleled exertions made by htm o' late in obtaining ne?s has won for him golden opi nions. It la no trifling matter fir a single man in an open boat, in all klnta of weather, to droo close alongside of a steamsiip under headway. Having done this the news ia thrown over in a water tight ean, and the newa being taken out, a single ahnet is affixed to a bird's leg. After d ring this, Jimmy aeta tbe bird upon his fliger, I->oks at him avfui rtiarp, as if to impress bin with the importance of hie mission, aod bid* nim go. Mesntaaa the bird looks inquiringly around, sets hia eyes upon Jemmy lor a moment, as much as to sav, "I know wio my feed comes from," raises his wings, and away ho goes, wi h all bis power of locom ition, in a straight One for tbe office, going a distance of tiree or tour miles in as mair minutes; aui, popping in at tae Window, Is receivod by the "Emperor," who trans mita the intelligence over the wires to tie c"y, ?wai lb is frequtntlv received and published bafore tbe steamer leaves tbe quarantine. I'll let this suffice for the present, with a rem irk bo the reader, tfcat if ever you visit 4*ndy Hook, bi snre to tntrcduce jourselt to the Emparor, aod the visit will iem?ln stamped upon your m?mi'y tor bfe.

Yonr fashionables of watering places ate tnoaa who have got suddenly rich; who hive bwa seizad with a pletooia of money, as folks aie with apoplexy. It baa come upon Ihem unexpectedly, by the sud den rise of putty, or the death ot a rich relation of the tallow chandler or blacksmith school. They suddenly fail upon brilliant equioages, sometime* embracing all the colors of therainoow; turn up their noses, and so go it with a perfect looseness, ihere are some biaux at toe island wao are the snbiimest specimens of the squirt breed that you can imagine.

On Thursday night a row occurred In a h ruse of I'lfame a little west of the old hoepital < n King street, in wnich two or three of the circus oeopie were concerned, f #o young men, named Fiw et and Fr??er, who, it is F&idjMiMkJfLjhc hook and ladder company ia thU cuvTwurtRnoualy 1( ja-ed, one a' th?m get ting his jaw broken in two place < fr <m toe blow of a decanter. Tne parties woo inflicted *-.e*e irjn lea were thoee connected with the circus; an 3, conse quently, the frletds of the suffarere vn?pd vea geanoe on the wbole establishment. From the inquiries we nave made, we have aaeortalned that tie friends of Fawcet and Fraser were busy daring the whole of Frid?y preparing for an at'ack on ma circus ewablubmeut in the evening. Every endea vor was made to collect such a forae a? would, if pcsiibie, overawe both the circus people and the police, and allow the mob to do just as it pleas dd. u deed, we have beard from several that t&ey wero aware of a riot being c n template 3 several hcurs pre viona to that at which the performance coumbocid in the evening. It also appears, as waa sta'ed by constable McCaffrey in his evidence at the Police Court, that a certain system ot a ;Uan was de cided upon. Symptoms of tne not were quite per ceptible daring the h tut of perfo maioe, bat no re gular attack waa made up n the premises until the audience had dei arted. It waa then that boom one c< mmesced to cut the canvas* with a knife, and a most violent demonstration was made by yells and stouts. The employes of the circus arcaed them selves with such weaions as they oould lay tuuds upon, rallied out in a body and m?ke a cleirao 'e, and again returnee under the canvass. The poles hare, it seems, made a feeble attempt to arieit some persons, but w< re prevented by the mob. About this time, we believe it was, that Joseph Bird, a member of the hook and ladder oomptay. r??iv*d a blow of an L on b r from one of the circus men, and hsd to be taken home. A pistol shot, we on deratand, was aUo ft<ei by one of the party assail ed. The next step of the mob wm to make an at tack on one ot the wsg. ns, which they poked away and tumbled over toe embankment into the bay. They then attacked the ticket wagon, which waa smashed into pieces with their sxes and set on fl.*e. The Mayor bad previously been sen* for by Mr. Yale, one of tne managers of the company, and he eooB arrived on the spot, and endeavored to qued the disturbance. lie advised the circus men to lay down their weep^ne and consider tbemsslves as prisoners, and he w uld do ererything in nis power to protect them; to woich request t xey inmedlately ylelced. sitting d < en together un^er the tent. Hetbcu expostulated with the mob outside, and entreated of them to desist; but hm efforts, alt tonga successful in one quarter, were defeated at nn tner.

Mr. Councilman McC -nkry, who reaciud ihs ground late, was extreaely actl?e, and with hts aid and that ot three or fonr others, the Mayor was for Innately successful in pre vesting eecioua per sonal collision, although fe was frequently obliged to thiow himself betwiei the as eallaou asd tse (ariiea a;ta.ktd. After the tent was daxtroyed, tbe mob rus <ed toward the csravsaa of wild beasts, one of whi h (tbatof the c?mcUopar i) the* backe.i toward the tiarres; but the Mayor sad his awis'aats rescued it. His Worship tl /ally addressed the excited popu lace trcm the root of one ot the wago.?s, po oting < nt to them the shameful character of their or (tejirgs; snd after some time they began to dis 1 erse.
