Flour haf: fallen one dollar in a week; pro duce of every kiud aud of the finest quality is in the market ? vegetable*, beef, pork, mutton, neviir bettor- never more abundant; butter, milk and bay equally so ? and we turn down a leaf liere and stop und rest, and inquire into the reason why, in getting clear of the famine, we cannot ged rid of its pries. There is very little use of Hueh abundant o unless it is held at corresponding rates, It is marvellous that, having -o much, we are selling so high, llere we are the greatest agricultural people in the world ? our crops are lavishly excessive ? they look like a special Providence ? a reward to the American people for keeping rut of war, and attending to their own peaceful avoca tions. And yet wo are compelled every morn ing, in fact, to think of famine, and to foel that want is near us by tlie little we get and the much we pay for it. The truth is Ameri can producers have becomc speculators. They have got rich and arc able to hold their pro duce. They have a benev olent fancy fo f sup plying only tljonC who ure in great need. But in candor, we Lad better look this ing form of Umndanco fnlly in tbe face, rtnd ! give her credit for just what she intends to do, and what she will do. ^he came nmong=t us to give us the blessings of all the good things of the earth, and she intended we should have them at very moderate rates; and -o we must and so we will have them. We have a right to tbem under tbe provisions Oi tb<; laws of sop, ! n\v and deuuudj and although thcr* 'may k0 delay in the enforcement f,e these laws, they will nevertheless lu< enforced. y'jtf, let lis look into this matter of the crops flbd tkfe prices. Everywhere, in tins country and in England, France, in Germany ? all over the world, so far a-: information has come to u- there are promises of an abundant yield. The allegation that it cannot be so, aa many hundred thousand men have been withdrawn from the Ileitis of production to the armies of the ?reat Power?? thus performing the double service of cutting oil' supply, and providing consumers and increasing demand? all this is very plausible: so plausible as to have capti vated a goo'l many minds in this country and in Europe but is entitled to no weight. Tt is one of the props relied upon to sustain the pre sent enormous raK'.-> for produce; but in truth it has no earihly vitality -the slightest amount of test pre sure w ill crush it. Population in England and every part of Europe has been for many years crowding oa production. There have been more people than were required to cultivate the earth ? and e\en more than (tinder existing laws? unequal of course in their influence upon dis tribution between capital and lalior,) could be supported. The removal of such excess of population has had no influence on production, while it has taken away, wc may suppose in all, some two million consuming stomachs. The immediate effect of this would seem to I Ik? to relieve Europe and lo cut off even the demand which we have had for our produce in that direction. Hut it is answered to this that the vast armies maintained by Uussia, France, England ami Turkey, in actual war, and by Austria and Prussia, and nearly all the other Htates in preparations l'or war, must now be led out of American granaries: as Europe at best can no more than meet her own de mantis at home. ff thi were all true, the conclusion instil! forced, that wo are to pro vide the supplies. It happens that the world is witnessing the most gigantic trial; ol brute strength which have ever tlisgrau .nl t!tu annals ol" hittory. It is not too much to claim that there are now four millions of people in Europe engaged or reserved, or iu some way set apart, for the field of battle. We grant that this is withdrawing from the agricultural elates large numb, rs, but it happens that they had them to spare without affecting produc tion. Well, notwithstanding the war, the commerce of the world is going on as regular ly as ever. Not a t ipple is seen upon the sur face of its broad waters. War is upon the land, and not upon the sea. The armies arrayed against rat h oth^r are in Eastern Europe, on lite very comities of Asia- in the \ cry centre of that fabulous region ot production which has been lite wonder of mankind -incc the days of the Patriarchs. The fact is obvious that while the Western Powers are defending Turkey they ale providing a market for her productions in Europe, in Asia, and even in Africa. The great armies of the We?t have been sent to the Mast to consume the llo.tr. wheat and corn of the Ottoman people, and of those neutral States in the north and south of Europe which "have enough and to spare." Ltd us t u in up this matter iu a few words: The year lSj."i has produced more subsistence I for man, in all parts of the world, than any of its predeci'?ors. (Inmting that lour millions of men ha\e been withdrawn from tlieir places and from agricultural labor, they lmo not.it is manifest, caused diminution of productions in Western Europe, while they have been transferred to the very granaries of the East, and bccome the coiisum. rs of its Ion ; hoarded stores. How. then, are American fiiruwr* to find a market lot their va i -urplus at anything like present rates in this country.'

There is an air of alarm in the ranks ?f the people, because thedast five years have added only oue hudrcd and eight thousand to our population. We sec nothing extraordinary in this, and nothing which is not susceptible of ea?y explanation. The increase from 1810 to 1800 was two hundred and three thousand, I which is precisely equal to the entire popula tion of the city in mo. The alarm is caused by the fact that the percentage of gain is not a* great in the last live years. This is so, in the face of confident predictions that it would j be nearly double. Well informed persons re garded our population as likely to exceed eij-ht hundred and fifty thousand; whereas the figures reduce it to G2 1,179; and this is looked upon as an alarming fact. Hence inaccuracies, and blunders, and carelessness, are freely charged upon the persons entrusted with the enumeration. It is one of tlW wisest and best ordinances ol the day, that of periodical returns of the number of our inhabitants. + 18 ? book and the dead reckoning of th? fore the discovery of solar computations. - a such is the estimate of the public; for an ap- I parent falling oft' in our population has alarm- | ed our sensitive property holders? as we tb^ J f?r no ream Witlioul an accurate cen sus, no well founded estimates can be made of the worth of real estate, and its improvements, which in thie and all'other rapidly advancing cities, is fixed upon an ascending scale of va luation. A landlord regards his rents and the appreciation of his estates as a part of his in come? a buyer comes to the same conclusion; and although wc must find the end of this i\ay of settling values, it is certain that we have yet discovered nothing to indicate an approach to it. To a great extent the large fortunes in this city are the results of appreciation of real property. That is the chief element of wealth and the basis of very extended ope- j rations, in which there arc employed va-rtsum* | of money. Perhaps to some extent values may be influenced by the peculiar configuration of the city and the points at which its chiel I improvements were first made. For instance, from the Battery northward, extending to the East and Hudson rivers, and np as high as the City llall, peculiar commercial advantages are enjoyed? the eft'ect of which is to concentrate there the most active and wealthy of our busi ness men. Real estate within that range has gradually but certainly risen in value up to the present time; and it is remarkable, as illus- I trative of the effect of crowding population upon real property, that it is most appreciated precisely where it is most uselessly employed. I For instance, in Wall street it is higher than in any other part of the city. The actual pro ductive uses of that street are not equal to those of any good butter-farm in Orange couuty. It is a large hive of speculators, aud they are so elbowed in with each other that property has become minutely subdivided by I their pressure, aud auy price can be obtained for it. Precisely the same law of supply and demand governs vulues in other parts of the city. The question is, whether property is needed for business purposes? It is manifest, for instance, that should the union of the States be dissolved, and tho constitutional free trade now t-vi ting be followed by restrictions upon commerce, the adoption ol a high taiill by one, and a countervailing policy by another, at least one-third of the business now done in the city would be lost to us. One-third, oi I somewhere in that proportion, of the inhabi tants would be thrown out of employment. In mechanical pursuits the proportion would be somewhat greater, becauso there would be little use for the hordes of carpenters, cabinet makers, ship workmen, and many others, who would?the population being reduced so much ?have a supply of their productions on hand for ten or fifteen years to come. That the effect of reducing business would soon be to reduce the number of our inhabitants no one will question. We allude 1< > tlic subject in this light for the purpose of showing the importance of being accurately ported by the ccu-ur, Atd also to impress upon our people the nature of the tenure by which, in fuel, they hold their estates. New York in to a very consideiaMe extent a political production she owes hor metropolitan strength to benefits derived from the political union of the States. In regard to the returns of the Census Mar shals, we have a word to say. Wo see no ground for charging them with neglect of duty or inaccuracy. The time has come when we should begin to estimate the population of this city in connection with tlwe of the surrounding suburbs* towns-, which in reality constitute us much a part of New York as the hands and feet, the arms and legs, lVre a part of the human body. It is the heart of the system, and sends out to the extremities whatever of life and animation they possess. How else do we maintain seventeen oreighteen ferries in connection with Brooklyn, Staten Island, Jersey City, HobokoD and other point*, and perhap* us many steamboats whoso busi ness it is to carry New York passengers to and fv??m their residence a short di-tuuee in the country ? If we add to this the Hudson River, the Harlem, the Flushing and the New Jersey railroads, all of which do an indepen dent business in connection with hop -on city passengers hack and forth, we shall have some idea of the thorough ?am< nej- of New York and it- suburbs, t or instance, it is esti mated that tw enty thousand peopl- cross at the Fulton ferry from Brooklyn ewv morn ing betw< en th" hours of -even and ten o'clock. 'I hose who huse lool* d into i lie ubji el regard the whole number of persons en^a^ed in busi U'--inN w Tork . nud re?idin: out of t ho i" y. as < needing 200.0O0, The rapid rise in tlie \alue of prop* riy ?io\vu town within the last fivo years, has driven out i< m<1< nt-.

M rt municipal ?rgantaatioes and names have had od influence upon th* people. Iheyluuc gone toUNRkiyti, wJtenit wu- th*. ir interest. I Many have gone there to avoid the payment of personal taxes upon their property, which they succeed in getting rid of by the confu sion attending their residence jn one place and their business in another. But it may be said that all the ferry and other communications with the city existed live years ago. That is true; 1-ut within that time New York has ex tended northward, property has risen down town, and adjacent city lots have come into comparative requisition. This city has run off so far that our neighbors arc brought near. Another fact may be mentioned in connec tion with the census of this year, which is enti tled, perhaps, to some influence: The work of the' marshals was commenced in June, but did not eud till the close of July. During the lat ter month a very large number of our citizens and fumiliea were in the country. Many of their city establishments were closed. It is highly probable that thirty to fifty thousand have thus been lost to the aggregate number returned. This, however, in the face of the explanations we have given, is of little com parative consequence. It is mauifest that an accurate return of all the persons whose chief interest and business is in this city ? who re ceive their letters here, do all their correspon dence here, who hail from New York and are New Yorkers in every conceivable sense, and a' <tfl times when not a sleep ? would show at Jejist eight hundred an*} fifty thousand. We are now so extended up town that kereafte* safe and prudent men will give greater weight

to neighboring cities as competitors, and make less extravagant estimates of the increase of New York proper. Confined and accommodat- 1 ed within narrow limits, we had no rival, and could have none ? extended, we bring other points into use, and this will have great influence upon real estate in the npper wards, and of course w ill continue to secure its ap preciation in the lower. Brooklyn and Jersey City, and all the surrounding country, contri bute to the value of property at the latter point and to depreciate it at the former. The Pestilence at Norfolk ? A Hint to New Yorkkbb. ? Our latest accounts from Nor folk show that the fever is on the increase, and we trust that the material aid for the sufferers will not be allowed to diminish. Be not weary in well doing. The Baltimoreans have acted nobly, in sending food, medicincs, wines and other necessaries. Another important gift, two hundred tons of ice, has been sent from New Haven. New York hasdone well, having subscribed about eleven thousand dollars, out of eighty thousand, raised so far. But Phila delphia has done better, and our amount, there fore, seems small for the centre of business, wealth and commerce. We would suggest that our business men should contribute of their stock of articles of necessity, food, grain, fiour, ?Vc., and that a ship load be sent down from this port to Norfolk. This sort of relief will be better than money. If we could fit a ship with food for starving Ireland, how much more ready should we be to help our own coun trymen who arc perishing for the want of what we can readily spare out of our abundance. The meeting of Saturday was a very interest ing oeca ion. The committee were requested In renew their efforts. The sum of fifteen hun dr< d dollars was ordered to be remitted at once to Norfolk. An offer was received from Mr. Henry I.iidlmn, offering to take to Norfolk any contributions that might be oli'ered. Here, now, is an opportunity to carry out the idea sug gest d above. Articles of necessity should be contributed, and in such shape that thoy can lie made useful at Norfolk immediately after the arrival of the ship. Those who will not give money cannot refuse a barrel of flour, a blanket, or a bottle of wine. Mudemoiselle Rachel's donation of a thou sand dollars is highly creditable to her. It pro\es that she has not imitated other artists, who lnive given charities in advance to hum bug the public. Ifer position could not be improved by it, and the act must have been suggested by the best motives. 9 Or k Summer Rbsort&? Closk ok tui. Fasuiox .\BI.K Sk.XSON* IN TBI CorVTRY. ? As the lu-t of the season, we publish to-Uay a batch of in teresting letters, in the way of li^ht loading, from the summer resorts of health and plea sure and fashion seekers of the mountain*, the lakes und springs of the interior, and the f?ea shore. The fashionable*, who have returned to town by thousand^, will find these reminiscen ce* of the places they have deserted somewhat refreshing, with another "heated term" upon us, threatening to atone a* far as possible for the general coldness of the summer. Short, however, as the season has been, we are gi .1 ti lled to state that from our abounding crops and the fair prospect of "a good time coming.*' all our watering places have done much better than was in the outset expected by any of them. Next summer, if Mr. Marcy and his man at Madrid, Mr, Dodge, keep us clear of a war on the Cuba question, we may anticipate a splen did American fashionable campaign at home and abroad, mixed up with the rno-t uproari ous Presidential carnival in the history of the United States. For the present, let us rejoice that the fall trade, the church - and the theatres are again in full blast- th.it bui-in .* fashion, religion and folly have returned to town, and that Alderman Ilriggs i- resolved to solve {hone mypteries of the dog pound) the black trunk uud that piece of black cloth, neck or nothing.

The efl'ort to turn the uationul* and the conservative Know Nothings into that "valley of (he shadow ot death," at present oc cupied by the administration soft democracy, will prove au utter failure. The soft .Syracuae resolution against Kaunas and the extension ot slavery into free territory ? the old "corner stone" of the abolitionists at Buffalo in 184m ? and in favor of the Missouri compromise, can not be tempered into orthodox nationalism by voting at a public meeting in this city that "it was expressly understood as the expression of an abstract opinion only." John Van Buren in the convention took good care to rebut this presumption by declaring that the New York delegation and the people of New York were practical men, and hated mere ab stractions. His free soil-anti-Nebraski-Mis souri compromise-Seward-republican platform, which was adopted by the convention, was made a "corner stone and foundation" of his party; an article of faith, and a saving ordi nance at that: and the General Committee are open heretics, dissenters, Protestants, outlaws.

The "ruffians" did'nt have it all their own way, for as a well informed correspondent tells us, "the biggest fools had as much io say as anybody." This shows that the negro worshippers, the Emigrant Aids and the republicans were there, and were per mitted to speak, and did speak as much as any body. __________ THS LATEST NEWS, BY MAGNETIC AND PRINTING TELEGRAPHS.

I have heard it frei(oently stated that over one thou sand are sick with the f?ver tu Ibis city. I made inquiry to-day, ana find that there are over nine hand red under medical treatment, tiesides those who wore waited upon at home by their friends and relative*. Tiie number oi deaths since the commencement of the plague i various ly estimated at 600 and 1 00. I think tho corr?;.,i amount to be about 650 . The Association and the dooto.-s here have s? ni off after more nur-es, and in eight or ten dfcys we may expect twenty or thirty. A majority of the moot eminent physician- bavd lott for home, but we have a jroodly numlj?: of young prac titioners yet, wl#o appear to render very efficient -orvice. Among Ihuse who huve kindly volunteered to ieavo home, friends and ease, to nurse the oiclt here in this pestilential city, have crept in scou udrelH of the deepest dye, whose lite would disguice a prison. An in .dent I will roiate, which cair.t under my notice a >tay age: la one ot the bouses of our cill/ens where then- w?ro seven deaths, a nur>o very kindly ('/?) olTered himself, and when uo one was present out loui little babies pilfered a irunkof a set of diamonds and other costly jewelry; !>ut for tunately they were nearly nil recivered. The liMwnest fellow? whose name i* Mailt/- ? was requested liy lome of his friends to leave, which advice he happily followed. Had he remained another duy the citizens woiud ?ertain ly have lynched him. How a man can rob the dead if a mystery to me. 1'erliaps this Is but one iiihtain-e of many that is carried on every day, for in the honaeslof the sick everything is neglected ? everything exnoeed.
