Aa eacursiouisis will begin with the introduction of ttmiurr to wend their way from aultrr to cooler region*, it may be reasonably inferred that many will, as u?ual, *M the noted and celebrated Kails of Niagara, and the many places of commanding interest in their vicinity. Keeping this in view, and feeling interested in all pleasure seekers and the comfort of travellers, I hope a litUe Informatted from this favorite resort will not be unac oeptable. To induce summer tourists to come here is not my ob.ieet. If It were, it would be unnecessary to use any persuasion or lake any pains ia the attempt. Niagara rails of themselves possess surb a universal fascination for the distant, and have such a deep hold on the imagination from earliest youth, that so long as the great inland seas known as Lakes Michigan, Huron and Erie pour their vast waters over tlio tremendous cataracts at the foot of Goat Island, there must and will be visiters. So much has beeu written, and so much been said, so many outbursts of eutbusiastic ininds, so many etfasiou) of the poet's brain, and descriptions by the historian's pen?all attempting to portray the sublimity, beauty, awful majcety and grandeur of this unparalleled wonder of falling waters?that I shall not veuturc to describe Niagara Falls To be justly appreciated, as the supreme of all cataracts, they must be seen. Nothing sliort of that will convey anything more than a faint idea of them The scenery is romantic all around here. There are aourea of stand points from which the eye cau behold them, and from each point of observation the scenic and calararttr view presents a chartn irr.-sistlbly impressive and imposing The rock, ju-t above the falls, where the poor follow remained clinging with depuration for twenty iwo hours, and was finally swept over and rngulpt d in the fearful abyss, is pointed out, and the stranger visiter, while having it pointed out and the harrowing recital told, feels a thrill of horror Indescribable. Only three weeks ago a little boy fell into the rapids on the Canadian aide, from a small island, and was swept into eternity almost instautiuieously. 11 ji mother was so close to him when he fell in that she grasped him by the hair, but it tore out. leaving a lock in her fingers, and he was gone. Will not that kick of hair be a sad, sad but precious memento in thai family? a theme it offurs for S poet's p> o! Waving all attempt descriptive of theso great tumbling, roaring waters, from the base of which rises a continual watery, misty cloud, and where, in sunshine, a bHwitifhl rainbow spans the river, embracing the American and Higlish shores?as though intended by Almighty to symbolithat national bond of amity and unity between the two greatest nations of tbo earth, which should ever be preserved.

Nt-wjwrt I What a paragraph of deOniLoos could be writUu no that one word. Newport old and Newport now, the beau -capital of the State of Rhode bland, the metropolis of its island nameaake, the nucleus of antique rtanb and moderns, the resort of the serious and delight of the gay?virtue, vice, Halt water and lager bier, politics and religion, all are visiters at Newport. There is an old wort to be seen here w hich, speak ing of Newport, aajm " It is a small town, n< ar New York." The writer of that, were he alive today, would expire in astonishment. This town is now a great summer resort. At this date there we but very few strangers here?the principal arrivals are Quakers and Quakeresses. This is their annual June meeting, and it is curious In witness the unusual agitation occasioned in the oo mm unity by this little acquisition la the population. The Society of Friends is quite s godsend at the present time. The broad hat, the white cravat and the drab coat, staid as they may appear, have ohased away much despondency, and the Newportites are eneouraged. The eurfhee of quietude has become plmtiagly agitated. There are set era! large hotels here?the principal ones are the Atlantic and the Ocean House. The Ooeea House is tho largest of all, aad will accommodate scene six hundred persons. The bedrooms are suitable la everv reanect: the dining room will sent about four hundred. The bouse at the preaeot tune in receiving a thorough renovation. It will he opened on Tuesday next for the reception of visiter*. The Atlantic in also undergoing the ablutions of water,and the embellishment* of the paint brush, and consequently not quite ready yet for tourists. This house, will probably, accommodate about the one-half of those by the Oct-au. Standing at the corner of South Touro street and the Rath road, the Ocean House appears lilt* a time worn cathedral; but a nearer approach dispels that appearance, and a closer view presents it in a favorable aepect. Indeed it is the c.ipltol of the capital of New port. Trade is very dull here, on the main street, the most conspicuous articles in one store are pickaxes, shovels and boxing Rloves; by which, we understands that Newport boys are becoming pugilistic, and determined wlwii they tight to win or die. At least the pick* and the shovels so seem to indicate. Th? policemen are all old men, at least the myority. In fact everything wears the semblance of aullquity. K\ en the cup at the public well at the head of long wharf resembles a small sired, old fashioned fry ing pan and the Custom House and the Town Hall are patterns of the olden time The park is in admirable keeping with the old buildings surrounding it. It is very email, has six r ude seats, several Urge trees, and is the ahajie of a smoothing Iron. The --Hath road" extends about a mile from Touro street, where the tlrst beacli is gained Here are two row* of Hmnll cabin-like huts, painted white, and, being at right angles, have a very pretty contrast w llh the blue sea which rolls upon the sandy shore. Farther on there is another beach, which is much frequented by the Now port visiters. A large, dark, deep chasm is here, iulo which the ocean flows, and sea birds have a favorite haunt in thi* deep sea glen; the noise of those screaming birds, and the mournful w ailing* of lie- w ?' -ra* they rush into this chasm, create a sound so discordant and almost frightful to unaccustomed cars, a* to gain for Una sea-rock cavern the Scripture name of Purgatory. The small houses mentioned are wh re bathers undrew, and put on their sea costume before descending into the gentle surf and cooling billow * A small fee is charged tor the privilege: but that is aiwu)* expected at {hahionable watering place*.

Stand ou the piazza of the "Glen Hpusoand you behold right before you, higher than many clouds, the mounts already named?namely, Madison, Adams, Jefferson, Clay and Washington. On Mount Jefferson suow is seen in patches as large as a common sized garden. On two others there is also snow; and on a smaller mount, just close by the Washington, there is a curious deception presented to the eye in two rocks oo the side of lite mount, which tho stranger would at once conclude were two men amMUag the side, so strong and striking is the resemblance lo the binnau form, and so lifelike is the motion of walkiug. Tins apparent move inrut of these rocks is occasioned by the passing clouds, which, on the Urst appearance, the visiter forgets, and is therefore deceived by both appearances.

The almighty dollar is paramount here to every other consideration.

The season has aga.n roiled round when all New York is seized with a migratory movement towards Europe, watering places or quiet villages, and they fly with tireless wing front Cape May to Newport, and thence to .Saratoga. To sc-h I speak. Feeling that I have found a haven of rest, 1 wish my city friends to ei^oy it with me, and so I beckon them to this spot?this Calypso's Isle. The moment that this delicioti3 air is breathed, all excitement fades away, and a dreamy languor and content holds us in it* clasp. The busy fsver that we feel in Wall street subsides, and instead of watching Use money market we watch the tides. Hie love of gain is Cur got ten?we soar above It into tho cairn regions of Arcadia. Stratford itself is very beautiful. A gentle, holy loveliness pervades its streets, and as we walk under the elm reea and view the graceful sweep of the white walks, the pirit of our early youth coasea back again, dun n- vor hone upon a fairer village. Nothing ???M bo more beau ifal than its streets and park, nothing purer than its fragrant air, nothing asore gWious than its fishing.

There U a pretty; tfttle flotilla of boats at the lower wharf; roomy, clean and well shaped, the very sight of them promis -s pleasure. In a month or more gay parties will flit them every sunny day, and Ihi fr will be many a trip to Charles Island, or to Milford beach, in the Flying Fish, Antelope or Dolphin. There ts good shooting on the flats and in the woods, but being naturally indolent I d' not go, but prefer to spend iny mornings in going to the Post Office and reading the Hxraio afterwards. Such is Stratford; and now I will apeak of Stratford society. Summer brings crowds of rity p?"ople to its classic shades.

She, wh as always been a beauty, an he ire**, and a belle, in one of those whose "evesp look and word that she doth say, is like enchantment, that through both the ears and both the eyes, doth steal the heart away." There is another more vividly beautiful rejoicing in Byron'* favorite name, but who la, except by reputation, little known. For to strangers she is As cold a* icicles on Plan's temples; but we hear each evening exquisite strains of music steal from her bright drawing room, so intoxicatingly sweet that we f<*ei that they must emanate from tho spirit of music aud beauty herself There are many great conversationalists. One a lady, '-a worthy scion of a noble line," has still tl?e power to charm the ear with her sweet cadence. A few years ago she wielded a fairy sceptre in Sew York society, hut failing health sent h-r to the South, and from thence she came to Stratford, thu borne of her fathers Another, whoso golden curls are arranged in the Venus de Medici style, sends life and animation wherever she appear*. Her ready wit, her kind sarcasm and her perfect knowUalgo of meu and tilings, make her admired and sought. Ah, how many stray towards a line old bonae, w ith antique rows of box bodging the walk Poor victim:. There is one gay songstress who should not be forgotten a tall, stalely maiden, often charms us with her melody. How often have I listened to the strains of "Robert, toi que j'aimo." Feeling sure that I have said cuough to tire your patience aud to convince your readers that Stratford Is the finest place its the world, I will close After you tire of excitements, caused by the coming of the Japanese, the Great Eastern and the IVince of Wales, 1 expect that mv wishes will be fulfilled, and New York will be deserted in favor of this town.

In short, the whole mountains teem with I springs ->f valuable healing properties. Many are left atMl 1 in their native wlldnees, for the herds and wild aoti mats, who are always fond of mineral waters, but gn I where you wlllin the mountaina, you will be in striking distance of some at least tolerably kept watering plane, < while the great majority, unless when taxed beyond their capacity, are unexceptionable. Nearer Richmond, we should not omit to notice tha Amelia Springs, of Amelia county, kept by Messrs. Wilson in very good style. They are quite a convonienoe to business men, and during the summer have a pleasant and highly respectable society.

We hope our Southern fellow citlaens will resort to our mountains in unusually large numbers. We OS* promise that they will at least be among friends, and wn may go further and say that the landlords of the springs and wayside inns will do their best to promote their oomfort.
