Sew Churches, Banks and Other Public Edifices. kc> he. he. fh? large number of new building* erected end in eourae or erection In tbi* city during the present year baa net been equalled, or even approached, for a long time past In the avenues, where, np to a year ago, the graae grew on almost uaeleaa ground, are now private dwellings of great architectural beauty and Immense value, Indicating with great exactness the progress of the wealth, tha Induatry and the civilization or New York. The upper part of the city Is, of course, more re markable for the number of new dwelling bouses then the lower part Still building or other kinds list not been nezleoted. Looking In any dlreotlon the observer cannot fall to be struck with the number or Churohes, schools, halls, hospitals and other Institu tions now In progreaa of construction, ma of them com ? boning all lbs beauty and the solidity of past architec ture, with the finish end lmpr ement f the preuunt. sxTuraoM or th* city. Tha extent of the work now In progress leaves no fo&bt whatever that In n very few years this city, which has ao rapidly assumed Its present dimensions, will be soms one unbroken labyrinth of splendid residences, picturesque villas, rloh*warehovises and solid stores from the point of the Battery to the border* or Westohester county, and the Island, now surrounded by the East, Jfortta and Harlem rivers, a dense and thickly pop ulated city, rivalling London in wealth and trada; a au parlor to Pan* In architectural beauty and naturil scenery. T*X LAW RXOCIATTXU srtLcrsog. Where each activity prevails In e trade that bears so muoh on the Interests of the city and Its inhabitants, the necessity of regulation* to insure the people per fect safety, both as regards life and property, Is fully re cognised. Acts have been passod by the State Legisla tors requiring walla of. stated height to be a certain thloknees; providing that there be sufficient means of egress and Ingresa, especially In tenement houses, and that ample precautions be taken against fire. The regit y4llwn ?n this point Is so direct and forcible, and the sub test itself ? of guch importance, that, although lately appearing In the ffttltn, ? ^ not be out of place to again give that part of the law which rilaTei -. All dwelllog house.. In any part of the city of New York, already ereoie<l or that may hereafter bd built, th it now are ?r mar be more than forty feet high, thai" shall be occupied by or built to contain all or more families, above the Brat story, and all dwelling house, that shall be ^coupled by or J'?ht or pyre families, aueve the first Story, shall have a alalrwav, coqijeoted w'tboa proper aeutUa or other opening, leading to the roof, antMh the room, on each floor shall connect by doors from fnvbl to ?ear, and every such dwelling house abail have placed thefe Oft a praeUoal fireproof fire escape that shall be approved of by the department for the survey and In.peciion or buildings In tha city of New York; and all front and rear tenement hou.es on the same let ahall he ? nnected by au Iron bridge; provided, that where any such building ahall be built fireproof throughout, or where there are two or more dwelling houses adjoining, and of equal height and with flat roofs.'the mania may ha exempt from the requirement, of this section; and no dwelling houses such as are men tioned In this section, now built, or which may hereafter be built, ahall have any bay, straw, hemp, flax. wood, .havings, burning fluid, turpentine, camphene or any other eomtiiia. tlble material atored thareln, or kapt on sale, except In such quantities as shall bs provided for by ordinances of th# Common Council In sala city. The Improvements in tha new buildings sro varied and numerous, and it can be safely said that the wise fore thought of the owners and the skill of the builders, both OOtitrolled by very strict laws and close and careful In tpeotton, tend to make the better class of new edifices th this elty perfectly safe la every respect. Dtssmsnssos or woods* boilmikm. Of every handred of the buildings on New York Island at least ninety eight or nlnoty-rune are made of stone Or brick, whilst the remaining one or two, whtcb are ponapoeed of wood, are exceedingly small and of scarce ly any Importance whatever. Those monuments of the ?Banners and customs of the burghers of New Amster dam, the wooden "shanties," as we call them, are day by day disappearing, like that class of good old folk*, whose plain and simple habits made them content in these now rlokety houses. The few frame houses now going up are built north of Slghty-slxth street, for tho law, In view of the dangers to which they expose life and property, very wisely pro hibits the erection of any within that limit. Should any groat necessity arise, permission may bo obtained by application to tho Supreme Court, on the recom mendation of the Superintendent of Public Buildings. Tne act regulating wooden buildings says that AH bake houses, smoke houses, ash houses or ash holes, hereafter built, shstl '?? constructed otillrely of stone, brisk, or Iron, and without the use of wood In any p.irt thereof Mo frame or wooden building, shed, eileii'lon, stairway, atom balcony, piazza, platform, bsj orortet window, or Wooden structure of any kind. In whole or In part wood Shall hereafter be built or const meted south of a line run ning from the Knat to the North river one hundred feel pi.thnf Klghtv-tilth -tre-t In said nits, unless the same Shall drat he authorised hy the Superintendent of Hitl'rilngs, undar bis certliteate. to tie by htm first obtained and issued |n the same manner as provided for his leaving certificates nr. let section thirty-three of thle act; provided, how.

Of the necessity for, nnd advantages accruing from, ibia law tberw can be but one opinion While It causos Comparative safety, It at the aatuo time protects our handsome building* from being d stroyod In appearance by their neighborhood to tha small fraggling, shaky buildings which alther unwise economy or want of sufll gipnt fnnds might induce tha owners of ground to alert Mi their vaout Iota.
