A pretty s'ow road Mils. Saratoga Springs, 182 miles from New Yo.k city, has tor g been ?he moat rathlonabie American warr ing jJaoe. It s a pretty village, with about 3,000 inbabKan's and a great many hotels, wt?*re, as a gereral ?hirg, ore can't get anyiMng to eat without feeing a set of rapacious servants. The chief spiiiu, toe Ooag-ess, was disco vered in 1792, but was pr.babiy hno*n to the Itdiars long befoto that t.m?. The medi cinal virtues of ihe water in many Borbatic dis eases is well known. From an analysis, it a >peare that a gallon of the water contains toe 'olio wing anbatancee: ? Comuon sa r., 385 grains; hydriodate of soda, 3^ gra ns; bicarbonate of sida. 9 grains; oarbooate of 1 me, 98 griln<; bicarbanao of mag nesia, 9'i grain-; ca ban ate of iron, 5 grains; suex, grain; carbonic acid sas, 311 cubic inches; at mospheric air, 7 do. It is not uncommon for per sons fond of the water to drink halt a gallon before breakfast, and it is certainly a pleasant way of taking powerful medicines. Over tills spring the proprietor has built a pavilion, ta whloh hundreds of people resort every summer morning. Amoug the hotels Congress Hall see ma to he the favorite this year, having been recently rejuvtnated and opened under new proprietors. It is the nearest bouse to the Congress spring. there are many pleasant drives about Saratoga ?that to Saratoga Lake, about nine miles east of the Springs, is the beat. The patriotio traveller will extend his drive eight miles further, to Bemtu> Heights, where the ever memorable battles of Sep temberand October, in 1777, ware fought. You are shown the hcusi where Gen. Frazer died, and the room where the gallaat British general breathed his last remains undisturbed. Also the spit where the actual surrender of Burgoyne's army to the American forces, under General Gatea, took plaoe. Lake George la 2J miles from Saratoga village, and is a great resort for pleasure seekers who are tired cf the Springs. The lake is fall of beautiful island*, and is noted for the transparency ol its waters. On its shores the traveller may also see Fort Ticonderoga, celebrated in our revolutionary annals. You may pass through the subterranean passage whete CoL Ethan Aden roared out bia order [or the fort to surrender, '*in the name ot the Great Jehovah, ?Dfl the Continental Congress." The ho tels at Lake G eorjtf V9 very good, it is said. Vie have a'reidy pointed out two routes to Niv gara Falls? one |>y boat from Oiwego; the other by the Eile and Elrnlra and Niagara Fails railroad. The railroad route, by the New York Central road if, we think, the quickest. You miy leave New York, by Hudson Biver Railroad, at elx oxioak in the Burn ing, dlae at Syracuse, lad roach the Falls In the evening. The road passes through the centre of the State, and is formed by the consolidation of the Albany and Schenectady, Ut'.ca and Ssbeoectsdy, Syracuse and I'tk*, Rochester and Syracuse, and Bufiklo and Rochester railroajs. The Central Isafaat and pretty well managed road, doing an immense way business. We think the Etie has more through pas. seageip. By taklsg a Nirth river steamboat from this city oae can go ta Niagara for about seven &)'?? lui cheap enongh for four honored and iif'-y mile* So mnch has been said about Niagara that it is baldly worth while to repeat it. Tha traveller, however, will cot leave the place without a visit to the tuipeaaion bridge, wbiih ii almost as grca' a triumph of ait as tne Falls are of nature. Frt m Niagara It is a pleasant tnp across Lake Ontatio to Canada, and back through Vermont. Visiters to Sharon Spring* will take the baat or cars to Albany, and then go by Central railroad fifty live miles to Palatine liridge station. The Sharon Springs water Is highly medicinal, aad coa talns a larger percentags ef salphur than any me dicated water nori-h of Ma*ou & Dixon's line. Sharon la a sort of conservative watering place, I ra hcr more quiet tcac Saratoga. All the way 'ares on tbe Central iallro>d are at the rate of two cents per mile.

Doubtless w* shall have another heated season in a d*y or two j at any rate I am going to hold on here until the midd'e of August Tho season will here oome before that time. Hot or cold, Cape llay is gay nod fashionable Cram this period to the last of August. We lave a large company (over seven hundred asd fifty > at the Mount Vernon, while the other prominent houses are pretty well Ailed. Upon the whole, thus far the season has been a failure. There Is ? very prospect of ita proving an avenge one. Indeed, there can be no doubt of this il the hot spell which has just left us returna. Theie waa a " hop" at the Mount Vernon a night or two ago, which waa well attended, and pasted off with spirit. JBsckl Baad exclusively engaged at this house ? played ?oim tf their very best quadrilles, waltzes, polkas and ichottiscbee. Tbe belles of toe occasion were Philadelphia sa and lUiti anreaos. One in par ticular, a laiy froa toe Moaamntai city, excited a cartload of aigbs. We saw two or three joaae aid exceedingly tender headed beanx from Philadel phia, whose white waiaicoita were woiully agisted by the beatings of their hearts, aad who, as tM) surrounded the lady in qaestioo, shook froo head to foot, as jf tbey bad been cvtafoot jbl>y rather ttiao flffcb and blood.

DouoUess fire tboaawd peo ple could flourish in It, witn heel and toe, at o ie time. When lighted up with brilliant j?ta of g*8, and filkd with a g?ily dteeand cwuany, it foriw a coup d'tril very hero to surpass. " Hopj" at tie Columbia, thellsnsion House, and CongTeai Had, have been very brilliant the present season. Indeed , if we have had fewer people, they have been j jllie; than those who usually oose here. Got. Piios of New JeriMiy, has been stopping at the Mount Vernon, fle is a modest, genttanv^liks person. Tbe t'overnor waa aoc m^ut^ed by 0<*n. Carpenter and others whose names have escaped ua.

YarMing, Dancing, tfc., tfc. I After suffering to a tearful extent from the heat of Gstham, and after frequent slghings in Tain foi "a lodge in acme vwt wLlierneea," it waa in a fit oC desperation that I jumped aboard the Huguenot yea* teiday afternoon, hardy knowing when bound, when In about an hour I found myself hare, being *>y first visit. The fir* impressions of tha place were well calculated to inspire ma with pleasure. As wt ?eared the dock bevies ot beautiet were thare to ba seen awaiting the arrival of husbands, brothers, or perhaps lovers. What a sheerful sight! what fond greeting to men of bos'neaa, after the toils of th? day! I jnmped ashore, and as I did so hid lo clap my band on my wAb brimmed straw to keep it on, for there was a goad breoie stirring. I stood there just loi>g euongh to nave every remiant of New York i atmosphere blown off, and wended mj waj to Brown's. The gong Bounded for tea, after which prepara tions were to be nude for the hop in toe evening, the fourth of the sesson. No l's band being in at* tendance, struck xtp an opening overture, when the dancing oommenoed ai.d was kept up nntll 12 o'clock, and with such spirit that tney danoed through a heavy thunder storm without eckroely knowing it. The adalr was splendidly gotten up, here being _ gojie tnree hunired present, and was not at^ded witn any of that s'JffoM* or anobbiahneos whi<*h *o ftequenfy characterize* the bopa of Saratoga, Newport, M>d elsewhere, fhera were many beaut ful l?aies ^reeent, w^ese dancing and demeanor entitle thum vt distinction; of these I may m*ntien Mrs. E ? Mrs. V? a ? n, Mrs. fi g, Miss T f , Huis W ?, lajtum Miss B a. . ? There were also quite a number prasent from Staten Island, ai>d aiuons them I will aaendoa Mrs. C n and charmmg daugntnr, both wait known at Weat Point. After tbe hop the band went abjot atresading, and until two o' clock aweev strains were heard at aiSHent points of tbe place. Bergen Point is a dftligntsul place; there you wUh find a cool breeze every evening, and a o;m(ort?bla night's rest? true ttiere an ? few mnaquitoef, but they are quite docile, and their singing ot the melo dious kind.
