Aug. 17. lsSf>.) T/if Arcana of Fashionubtr. Socicty ? To Know or Not to Know ? Amusements ? Fashionable Be lit*, &<? There arc many phases of society that never fail to afford amuoomcnt to the spectator. To know, or riot to know, certain persons is one of them. Ihjon tliirf one subject there i.-s exhausted au amount of tact And perseverance perfectly astonishing. The question in not, to ho or n t to be '! It is to know, or wot to know. An old Knickerbocker, whose an cestors maintained a '-pace in the world's eye, told me that one of these nianceuverera always vecogni . -J him wfccu he was in a certain circle, but invariably cut liim when surrounded by another set. The old Knickerbocker kindly smiled while relation the incident, and excascd the conduct of his some time I acquaintance, by assuring mo that hi- (the some time acquaintance) position in society wassodoubi I ful and precarious that be. couldn't afford to rocon I nize a plain old Knickerbocker before his fashion able friends. That is it. If the position of an ambilious noto ricty i^tker was fixed, they conld afTord to rceog ni'/.e ub acquaintance in' the prc-euee of their fashionable 1 rii nds as 11 as on the sly. lint. i. there Is the slightest denger of the inquiry '>tinj; put of " who U your friend!''

Tbi3 making proclamation about distinguished friends, who?e notice has been won by chance or after desperate struggles, is by no mean's an uncom mon failing. Tbc exertions of our white brethren ?ro countenanced by iht ir colored co-laborer, the Black Swan, who makes frequent mention, in her -mall bills, that she h.us h. il the honor of appearing liefore the Duchess < f Sutherland, Ac., Ac., which fact, not only adds to the sweetness of her voice, but attracts the vnkrar to her concerts. The round of pleasure still continue*. The hops and balk at the United States arc as stupid as ever. The ladies are well dressed, look well, walk well, Ac., but have nu.-h a Unified confidence in their social positions that they can't aOOrd to act naturally, l^st night ihcre was aconccrtand ball at the Union. There was a remarkable array of beauty, brilliantly decorated. There were very few from either the Congress or the States. It H more than hinted tliat the secret motive for the absence of the ladies of our bouse haj it* foundation in the generally admitted fact thut the ladies of the Union are not only moro beautiful, but possess more wit and greater conversational inwers than we can boast of here? and yon know uo\r difficult it is to brook a rival. We must make the eflort next season to win the Inion ladies to the States. The ball ps*?ed off exceedingly well, the young ladic?, as well as the married, looking remarkably beautiful. Iftlie prac tice hud not become vulgar to specify names. I would mention those who were most admired for their beauty and elegant attire. I may be purdoued for saying that one, the "queen of the ball" as she was culled, was rosplendently lovely. I'lstus. tiik oiia sn rmi>> n u.i. at cmon hall.

There are two hotels here, web Ailed with visiters from N< w York, who seem to embrace every means of making the time agreeable, as regards aquatic i set rsi< u ? lishlug and bathing. For those whi re gard the latter as an invaluable tonic, ample provi sion id made.

Pish ing, iu particular, is lilicnilly practised, and with the exercise of a little ingenuity uu abundant ''himl" will always meet the efforts of the fisherman. The scenery is particularly remarkable for it^ variety and beauty. Here, from a high range of hills to the north of the town is a scene of unparal leled grandeur, diversiilcd in extent and surpassing ly rich in all the beauties of creative power. ' To the east, the long, winding valley of the Connecticut river is seen at intervals here and there through tho tall and stately oaks that fringe its banks, us it glides calmly to the sea. On the south, were Sleets of dancing little crofta, with their white sails flap ping in the breeze, stretching far away to th? south ern lioriKon, increase the interest of the scene; while ' to the cast, as far as tho eye ran reach, the pine, tin oak tuul the sycamore raise their majestic crests and arms of rich emerald, and weave themselves into ro mantic woods and groves, seemingly boundless, in the distance. The scenery of other lands, boasted of as it is, may equal, but not excel, the inexhausti ble variety of American scenery; but in tho race of nations llie pencil of the paintei hasbecome asobso lete as the tuition which nrst fostered and jrerpetu uted its efforts, and " civilization" nipped in the nascent bud the classic ideas of earlier age?. Self advancement and aggrandizement is to-day the g<? verning attribute iu the character of man.

Home of those old Connecticut re sidents, whose tuition in other respects has licen neglect^!, are wonderfully expert in mental arith metic. Their adaptability to "kalkclation" is extra - ordinary. They live well and pionsly, but seem to have mi unutterable horror of dress". Indeed I am inclined to think they would have difficulty in recop nizing a Broadway swell as a man, were he to ap pear In ??>. They have also an instinctive aversion to broker* and stoekdobhers, whom they universally regard ns a r?ce of roNiers and swindlers. The concerns ot other men trouble them not. They live tor themselves. Money is their God, and the accumulation of wealth their only ambition. Never theless, then still remains the old genuine hospi tality pervading all rheir actions.

Democrat.] Montoohkht White Siti.phok, > Aug. 14, 1855. f 1 hnve travelled some in my brief existence, vi-?ite?l many of the jtopuLir summer meats, drank their water, eaten their fare, taken their drive*, and rlept on their beds. I have been to the seashore, ?nd can speak feelingly of its delicacies quite enough to swerve an anchorite from his propriety. IJut 1 confess to never h iving visited a spot, to my taste, uowest<ed of more attractions than the d?> lightfiil spot Irimi which this epistle is written. Located in a beautiful volley, between two steep and lotty spnre of the Allcgkanies, it posnes-os natural advantages, a 'id a susceptibility for improve ment unequalled within the range of my observation. This valley, a hundred years ago, was a den?e wild, and is said to have been the abode of a band of tree* liooU ia, whoi-c lavages spread consternation among the early settlers. Prom this circumstance, the Iccality acquired the name of ?? Devil's Den," which i' vulgarly tear* in the vicinity. The cave in which the robbers secured their booty is situated about a half mile from the Hprin/.~, and Is much resorted to by the visiters. There are some traditions in con nection with this spot, of which I may make mention in another letter. The establishment is in an unfinished stale, having been commented but little over ten months airo. There are already comfortable accommodation* for about three hundred persons, which will sufficiently itdicate the energy and despatch with which the work ha* lieen prosecuted. The lodging rooms are larp* and airy, while the ball room and dining room are equally well adapted to their respective pur po-es. The work of building is still going on vigor ously, and the proprietors confidently anticipate being able to have coinlortable accommodations by the r.ext season for upwards of a thousand people. The property u owi.ed by a joint stock company, CMnprisjng some six or eight gentlemen, the aggre gate wealth of whom < an not be less than >2,600 ,i>UO. They have already doubled the original capital sto<K,and arc determined to spare no outlay to make it the largo and fashionable watering place of the Smth. Nothing short of a Southern Saratoga will answer their expectations: which, I confess, are well founded. Situated wityin a mile and a half of the Virginia and Tennessee line, it communicates with this mag nificent improvement by means of a private railway, enabling the traveller to reach it witliont being sub jected to a foot of staging. Jnstto think of it, ia three years one may breakfast In Norfolk and sup here on the top of the AUegtaanies! Verily, is the railroad a great institution. Aa an additional fea ture of interest, 1 will remark that the proprietor* have contracted for the construction of ajuivate line of telegraph, connecting the Springs with the lynch burg and Abingdon line, which will l?e in operation by next summer. There are four mineral springs, embracing two of chalyt*ntc and two of sulphur. The water of all is very fine. One of the sulphur springs it very strong, but in tinkering with it another streum was made to flew into it, which, so far, the workmen have lieen unable to separate. No doubt is enter tained of their ability to do so, in which event the wa?? r promises to tie quite as strongly impregnated with sulphur as the (irvenbrier White. Thus Isr I have said nothing about the ft?re, and wonderful, to?; for, to be candid, 1 confeasto a weak ness for good living. To grow climacteric again, I will observe that I have put my feet ua<icr rartoas editions of table ctfthc-rnr/ in the ued ia the country, but i n.-.ch aonU i' wr 1 hn\ fou J th ?u n.ore bount.fni), and dt4ici- o.->iy l<edt*fced thiutMi bibles here, which are Ind btt,' for th. ir inviting i:ri**>iug to tL? c; < r'- g ant cooking iuiniair.it.jaH ot my old frit, ail V uotr.i!* ?

I The fMory of the Kleetrte Telegraph. TO TDK K.D1TOR Of THE HKHALD. Yonr correspondent, "J. M., ' Iu telling " the Story of the Electric Telegraph," says that the February number of the North Brtiith Review for the cur rent year, has the following The merit of inventing the modern telegraph and applying it on a grand scale for the public use, m beyond all controversy due to Professor Morse, ot the United States. That is a quotation from the work of a Scotch tourist in America, and Is re (erred to in the Rtvtet* tins, " Mackny's Western World, vol.2, p. 252," and is the commencement of Mr. Mackay s description of Moire's Telegraph and its history, as he understood it from Information obtained In the Uutted States. The passage next preceding this quotation in the Rcritw is as follows " MM. <ian<w and Weber, of (iottingen, were decidedly the hr>t persons who ap plied an electric telegraph to purpo^s of actual util ity. So early as 1833 they lia?l ciected a teh-JJraphic wire between the astronomical and magnetknl ob servatory of (Jottlngen and the Physical ('abinet of the University for the purpose of carrying intelli gence from the ono locality to tho other. The reviewer claims that the tii-nt inventor ? of the electric tclegruj.h was, a Scotchman who published a description of his plan in the Srot*' Magasme for February, 1763, und this curious article is copied m 'kj/wL'sayii that Professor Morse, ill 1S3S, went to England, '* having secured his invention here, and t'lidcavoicd to obtain a patent from the I?ritiHli government. The application, however, was met and opposed by Wheatstone and l>avy, and was de feated in consequence of their alleging that the In vention liad already l*en published, and that ac cording to BnglL-h patent law it was public pro perly. That w correct; but Wheatstone and i>*vy had previously obtained patents (or their systems, and Morse merely claimed his as an improvement on theirs. Wheatstone's En?IUh patent is dated l?th June, ]s:i7. Morse's first American patent is dated ^Oth or June, 1840, and is posterior in date to Wheatstone 's American patent. Morse s patent m for an improvement on the previously invented electric telegraphs. It is a dispnted qnestioo what tier his system is an improvement on the prior ones, and in point of fact it is not preferred in Urn donor Paris. . ,, , , . .
