A SUBURBAN TRAGEDY. Revolting Case of Wife Mur der at Yonker8. A Corpse Decomposing for Days in the Centre of the City?How the Crime Was Discovered?A Sickening Scene Portrayed?Worms De vouring the Body?The Hnrderer Leaves a Written Confession and bncceeds in Making His Es cape?Efforts of the Police to Unearth the Pngitive. The Sabbath stillness of Y'cnkers, Westchester county, was disturbed yesterday morning by the startling announcement that a revolting murder Had been perpetrated in that proverbially pious city. The horror, mingled with surprise, which was felt by the community at the ghastly dis closure was intensified when it became known that me victim was a woman, and that the terrible crime had been committed some days ago 10 the very heart of the city, within one short block of the police sta tion, and not distant one hundred yards lrom the <pourt room, where delinquents of high and low 'degree are often brought to answer for their mis deeds. Surely, it was thought that this was the last spot to be selected by a murderer as the scene ?f his bloody work, Bituated, as it Is, almost in the shadow or half a dozen churches and passed daily toy thousands on their way to or from the railroad depot. And there, within sight and sound of Jus tice, municipal order and religious influences, ?trange to relate, tt|| lite of a human bel?g had not only been destroyed by violence, but the fes tering corpse remained undiscovered for three or four days, until the noxious exhalations therelrom tainted the surrounding atmosphere. PI8C0VBRY OF TUB CRIME. At a lata hour on Saturday evening, while Roundsman McLaughlin was passing a low. one Btory frame house, on the northwest corner or Warburton and Wells avenues, his olfactories were greeted with a most offensive smell. Having pre viously noticed that the building (a portion ot which had been used as a cigar and candy store) bad been closed for a couple of days, the officer's suspicions were at once aroused, and, having resolved to Inspect the premises, he tried the front door on the Warburton avenue side, but found that it was locked. He then proceeded to the rear of the house, which is entered from Weils avenue, and, finding the back door un fastened. began an Inspection or the filthy In terior. Leading off from the room into which the rear door opens, and which seemed to be, frsm the dirt and disorder therein, an apology for a kitchen, was a dingy apartment blessed with neither light nor ventilation, and about eight feet by seven in dimensions. On a bed, which occupied fully half the space In the room, the vigilant .roundsman dis covered THE CORPSE OF A WOMAN, covered with a ciuiit, except one naked foot, which protruded. Having removed the quilt troia the face the omcer was horrified at the scene. The features were black as those ol a Hot tentot, swolleu and frightfully distorted, tl?e eyes wide open aud proirudiug, while the maggots were crawling by scores in and around the rockets, revelling in tlie last decomposing llesh. The body lay lace upwards, the lower limbs ex tended, one knee being drawn up towards the bosom, indicating that deceased had offered a des perate though vain resistance to her slayer. I he body was nude, with the exception of uu under varment. The mattress on which it lay was COVEKED WITH WORK, 9l ]&r?e portion of which had Honkinl through to tne floor, where it lay in several places under the bed. <>n a table in the iront room were scattered such remnants of a coarse repast as left no uout>t that lood had there been partaken of not many hours previous to the discovery. Having hurried from tne sickening atmosphere of the scene, McLaughlin reported the circumstances to captain Mangtn, who at once placed a guard around tue house, lhe body was subsequently identified as that of Mrs. Mary Fitzpatrick, wife ofMatthew Fitzpatrick, who both occupied the house, deceased ostensibly carry Ins on a petty business in cheap cigars and dele terious candies, while In another front room, con necting with the store and irontlnir on Warburton avenue, sne presided over AN A511110VOL'S "INTELLIGENCE OFFICE for females. Suspicion at once pointed to the hus band Matthew Fitzpatrick, whose disappearance from the city on Friday, had not belore been noticed, and whose guilt has since been fully estab lished bv unote in his handwriting bearing neither date nor signature, which was lound on thy coun ter of the candy shop.

Tne telegraph was Immediately put in requisition, and Information of the escape ol Fitzpatrick, with a description ol the murderer, forwarded to Police Headquarters in New York and elsewhere. Coro ner Mecks was also notified of the atlalr, and arrived at Yonkers yesterday morning. A jury having been empanelled, the corpse waa viewed by the memoers and a post-mortem exam ination made by two of the local physicians, lliese lound evident MARKS OF STRANGULATION on the neck, ami gave it as their opinion that deceased came to her death accordingly. As this theory can scarcely account for the large quantity of blood on and under the bed. where the corpse "? -was lound. it is probable that a thorough medical examination or the remains was not made. The doctors were of the opinion that the woman had been dead five days. As the body was rapidly de composing, It was taken charge of by the city authorities and buried in St. John's Cemetery. The inquest was adjourned until next Wednesday. A young woman who had been known to the police to have been stopping with the Htzptitricks was traced to Klverdale yesterday, where she was arrested bv Keundsman McLaughlin, at a house where she had obtained employment. This person, ?who gives her name as Mary Perrln, states that fiiie lctt the abode of the deceased on Saturday, the 24th ultimo; that she came to the city last Thursday on a visit to the l'ltzpatricks, but FOUND THE DOOKS LOCKED and the window shutters fastened. She also -dates that deceased and her husband oiten quarrelled, and wheu they came to blows the woman gen erally carnc out of the fight victoriously.

Is said that she removed to the latter cltv in order to be away from her husband, whose habits ol Intemperance and quarrelsome nature were luliy eqmdled by similar traits In her own character. Matthew Fitzpatrtck remained at Cold spring, where he followed tils oc cupation of gardener, until aiiout two weeks ago, when he removed to Yonkers. he having obtained employment there. Their abode has tor some *nue past been " an object of suspicion to the police authorities and others, who believed that gross immoralities were being practised in the house.

At two o'clock, when the rounds man again passed the house, everything was quiet, t^ince that tune he has noticed the place belag closed, on Friday afternoon Matthew Fitzpatrick was seen by a number oi citizens uttd some of the police sitting outald* the front door ol the house smoking a cigar, totally unconcerned about the festering corpse of Ills murdered wife, on which THE W011MS WKKK I BKDINU INSIDK. There can be na doubt ol hit eating in the house that day, as a portion of a fresh loal ol bread whlsh he had left was round on the table with other foad. He also took a drink wttu an ex-dep uty sheriff in a barroom near the scene or the mur der on tne same afternoon. Between tour and five o'clock on the same day Fitzpatrick purchased a ticket to Sew York at the railwa> station, and up to a late hour last evening nothing further had been learned of his whereabouts. It is not proba ble. however, that he can long elude tlie grasp of the law. Meiare twelve o'clock an Saturday night Captain Mangin took an express tram lor (,old Hpring, doubtless hoping that the murderer would first go there lor the purpose of seeing his uaughter. He whs not fouwi there, however, as a note irom the t aptam at Yonkers, dropped from the Southern-bound express train yesterday after noon, stated that he whs on his way to New lork.

An assortment of photographic views of the lava beds, to accompany the report of the topographical survey of that region, has been made for the use of the War Department. They show very satls/acto rily the wonderful system of natural fortiflcations presented by the peculiar formation of the lava beds. These views also Include the scene of Gen eral Canby'a murder and other spots of Interest. The Salt Against till Vnlon Pacifl* Railroad. Nothing lms been heard at thfc Department or Justice as to the course to be pursued by the de partments in the salt against the Union Pacific Railroad Company, One of the counsel for the government says the defendants will, of course, use every possible means to deieat the bill in equity, and that any astute lawyer could ioresce their line of proceeding, which Includes the denial of the constitutionality of the act of Congress authorizing the suit to be brought against the parties connected with the Union Pacific and Credit Mobiiler corporations. No one in official circles can form an opinion as to the duration of the suit further than that several years will clupse before it can be brought to a termination. The Union Pacific Railroad Terminus Controversy. The determination of the management of the Union Pacific Railroad to locate its general depot aud offices at Omaha does not settle the question ol terminus, as announced by telegram from Omaha. The question is still before the Attorney General for his decision, whether Council Bluffs or Omaha is the lSgai eastern teruiinns. It is thought j that Congress will have to legislate further, and the Attorney General may refer the matter to that ! body In December. A Convention of Irlnh-Born Citizen*. | Arrangements are being made for a national convention of Irish-born citizens, to be held In Cleveland, Ohio, about the 15th ?f July next, for the purpose of forming a league similar to the German Union for social und beneficial purposes. Some ef the leading Irishmen of New York, Phila delphia and other cities encourage the movement, on the ground that the Irish element In this coun try have not the standing, politically or commer cially, which their numbers and importance entitle them to. They say the Germans exceed tliem in almost every sphere, and that this is due to their default of cohesion und harmony and to re ligious aud political contention. Irishmen, like the members of the German Union, will be pledged to support one another In preference to persons of other nationalities, without distinction of sect or purties. No Change In the French Legation. it Is not thought in diplomatic quarters that any change will be nude In the French Legation at Washington, as Count Neallles has thus far satis factoriiy represented his government, and is highly esteemed in oitlcial and private circles. Another Negro Shot. About seven o'clock this morning William n. Hawkins, colored, while taking an estray horse to the pound, was shot by its owner, John Lynch, with a shotgun, the contents taking effect in Hawkins ielt arm and leg, inflicting serious but not dangerous wounds. Up to this evening the authorities have not succeeded In arresting Lynch, who is believed to have left the city. General Spinner on tne Payment of the National Debt. General spinner bus addressed a letter to Thomas Canby Riddle, (Jeeiong, Victoria, Australia, lu which he acknowledges the receipt of certain com munications lrom that gentleman. These were In tended to demonstrate, by figures, "how a saving of hundreds or millions can be made to this nution In the manner of the payment of its debt, different from the plan adopted by our government." General Spinner adds:? To my mind the cheapest way to par a debt that is subject to the payment of interest is to pay It at the earliest day possible. An individual within suUk'ietit capital) cugageil In ii lucrative business may find ii to his advantage to deter the payment 01 a debt, and con tinue the payment of interest on the same witU advantage to himself. In such a case or iti the case of u nation that lias not the means to pay its deot at one* or in the immediate future the scheme ol Mr. Kiddle would, no doubt, work admirably. Not so, however, with a wealthy and pro?perons people. A nation that pays its <i?l>t at oncepu.xsit thecheapest. The longer puvmcnt i-< deferred and the more interest is paid t tie dearer it becomes and the more it costs to pav it. or this seeming truism our people have become con vinced and are acting in pursuance thercor. 1 hey believe that the sooner a debt is paid and the lower the rate 01 Interest Is paid on the unpaid part thereof In the interim the less they will have to pav in the aggregate in 11s linal extinguishment. Acting in accordance with its belief 111 this principle, our government is now changing Its six per cent into a live percent stock, this latier being the lowest rate at which it is. at present, able to place u?, bonds. And it is now almost dally paylug every dollar of Its surplus revenue in redemption of its six per cent bonds, thus not only reducing the principal of the debt but saving the consequent payment of Interest thereon, on tne first day of Juiy next there will remain unpaid only *208,681,2011 (>r six per cent stork, on watch the government will not have the option to pav at its pleasure, and tin* amount win all mature un , the first day of July, 1S81, or before that time. On 1 all those stocks, on the government glvim three ? mouths' notice 01 its readiness to pay Iiie princi pal. interest thereon will cease. Under the oper'a I Hon of tins policy trio debt oMhe United states h-i? been reduced in the last i,?cal year In the sum 01 tutf.06o.25n .>4. From the 1st ol .March, ls?w, wh'n the present, administration assumed the manage : mem of the lluances 01 the country, 10 tli>* cio?e I of the year 1*72. a period of three years and two months, the natlonul debt nas been reduced $.j;-i - j sy.").2uy making an annual saving 111 the pay - 1 ment ol interest $24,U85,06'<. Under these circum stances the proposition secias to be plain that a government in debt that places its stocks at the j lowest rate 01 interest po-^ibie, and that has the I constant optien to pay and does pay, in addition to the interest any pan of tne prin> Ipal that It has j the means to pay. pays its debt in the shortest and cheapest way possible All the calculations and figuring that can be ! made or done cannot be made to prove to my mind the contrary any more than I could be made to comprehend t<y figures how a man may lilt himself by the walstbaud of his breeches. * ? ? It Is believed that placing an existing dei?t. that cannot be paid at once, at the lowest rate or interest, and to pay the principal as fast as the means for Its payment can be obtained, is the best that an individual or narion can do. The best investment or a surplus is to apply it inpay ment or a debt; thus not only reducing the prioci 1 pal of the debt, but the interest ol tne *ame. This I course the government 01 the United States is now j pursuing. Mr. Jefferson laid it down us a : sound principle in political economy that a national debt should be paid by the generation that created It. There Is now every prospect that our people will follow this wise teaching to the letter. Whenever any other nation sha'l show better results iu the payment or a national debt than this people had accomplished, whether it be by yours or any other scheme, we will be happy to adopt the latter plan. In ease your plan shouU be adopted, I have no doubt but congress would gladlv award you the five per cent inr.??lni ,n..lhe ",'t saving that might be made in pursuance thereof over that now In practice for rntntaJrmenl ?ur debt by our govern RAOIHO IN SAN FfiAN0I8C0.

Lamb, a Wisconsin Woman, Charged with Poisoning Her Son, Her Daughter and Two neighbors?The Slain Children Those She Saved Heroically During the Indian Xanaere of 1862. El.ISWORTll, Wis.. May 24, 1873. A murder trial opens here to-morrow which Is of a particularly interesting nature, details of which have aa yet been published in none of the Eastern journals. The alleged criminal is charged with having taken human life as ireely as ever did Lyuia Sherman, and by the same subtle agent poison. At the same time she Is a wife and mother wnose character has always been above suspicion and wlio, in the Indian massacre eleven years ago, bore herself as heroically aa any of the women of two centuries ago in the old Indian wars. The facts In this case are briefly a* follows:? The alleged criminal is Mrs. Chauncoy 8. Lamb, who, with her husband and baby, went to Sibley county, Minnesota, from Vermont about Alteon years ago. Settling on a farm near Arlington, tiiey lived and prospered for four years, two more chil dren being born to them. Tnen came the mem. orable massacre of 1862, when the red wave of sav age invasion swept over tne young State or Minnesota and left what had been a smiling land a waste of blood-slaked ashes. Mr. Lamb was abseut from home at the time, but his wife fled for safety. With her baby daughter on a cushion In her arm, her eldest boy running by her side and the other son toddling with difficulty, holding to her apron, she walked tg I St, Paul, where h.>r husband Joined her, l,.fer es cape Was part of the history of the massacre and was published far and wide by the IIehald and other contemporary journals. After the 1 family had been reunltod they decided to abandon the Minnesota homestead, whence they had been so rudely frightened, and removed to Trimbeile, a small town in this (Pierce) county, six or seven miles from Ellsworth. iipre t he v secured a term and prospered. Their infant, en'ildren grew up to boyhood and girlhood; thev worked incessantly and diligently; both of tliem were apparently devout Christians, and there was not a sick bed fo,-miles around whither Mrs. Lamb was not summoned and where she wa9 not cheerful and tireless In her ministration. DEATH OK 11KK HUSBAND. In September, 1871, Mr. Lamb and his eldest son were at work in the field near the house, stacking corn, when suddenly the father Jell to the ground. Mrs. Lamb, who was In the porch, ran to him, , luted his head and asked him if he had a fit. He ] could ouly gasp in broken sentences, "Yes?my i Jesus is coming; I'm going home-gooubyI" when he died. Ills wife remained alone with her dead, bedewing the face, now Bet and unresponsive, wii li her tears for two hours until her son returned, with assistance and the body was removed. Mrs. Lamb remained alone on her farm that, Winter, ami in the ensuing Spring leased the tillable land on shares to a neighbor, James W. uttmau. Just one year ago to-day Dan Orrin, her younger son. a boy of thirteen, died suddenly. No one was In the hoase with htin but his mother at the time of his death. She gave out that the boy had died or heart disease, and stated that his sutrerlngs had been Intense, spasms and convulsions having rapidly succeeded each other and internal agonies having knotted tlie muscles aud bent the body to the shape of a bow. Her sorrow was deep for the loss of tne child, who, ten years berore, had cluug to her apron and been helped onward by her weak arm, then strong with the might er maternal lovi, as they lied from the tomahawk of the ruthless savages. Less than one month afterwards, on the 2lst or June, 187J, the angel of death again entered the sorely stricken household. Her only daughter, saran, the baby that she had carried on a pillow lor so many nnles at tne time or the massacre, died as suddenly as had died her brother, with pre cisely the same symptons and sufferings as had been displayed In his case. The mother was alone In tire house at the time. Six weeks later another mysterious death oc curred at the Lamb homestead. The victim this time was not one or the ramily, but Mrs. Irene A. Ottman, the wife of tne Ottman who had leased the farm on shares. On the mornlug of the 3d of August she had walked over to the house to assist tier husband, and, agreeably to her custom, called on Mrs. Lamb and spent some moments In conver sation with that lady. Feeling 111, Mrs. Ottman asked Mrs. Lamb, who had a widespread local celebrity as aculler'and compounder ot herbs and other slinples, to give her something to do her good. Mrs. Lamb gave lier some drops of a preparation which lor the time relieved her. Mrs. Ottman then walked home, Mrs. Lamb accompanying lier anil lavishing on her every mark of atteutlon. Arrived at her own house, Mrs. Ottman's SI-ASMS OF AGONY returned and she requested Mrs. Lamb to give her more medicine. Mrs. Lamb went home aud re turned with another dose, which she administered. I It brought no relief to the sufferer, who died In a couple of hours. The lact that these three healthy persons had died within a few weeks of each other, tne sole at tendant and physician In cacn case being Mrs. Lamb, and the symptoms displayed by all the suf ferers being Identical, had. despite the high char acter aud general popularity ot Mrs. Lamb, caused no scantv comment. Whispers thai there had been I foul plav'had been heard, though none loudly, or I even openly gave suspicion breath, lor suspicion lu these peacelul, rural lecaliues Is "a plant of si ow growth." llut twelve days later a deadly finish was given to conjecture, and Hie passing bell for another suddenly-summoned victim rang the alarm in tones none could mistake or refuse to hear. Royal Garland, an unmarried farmer in the vicinity, had u number or hands engaged on his farm In harvest ing and, as he had frequently done before, em ployed Mrs. Lamb to go over to his house and cook diuner for them. On the 1Mb of August j they all partook, with their usual heartiness, or the dinner Mrs. Lamb had prepared lor them, shortly alter Mr. Garland felt unwell, and, going to the house, asked Mrs. Lamb to give him some patn-killcr. She went to a neighbor's house, pro- , cured a vial of pain-killer and gave him some in a cup. Soon alter drinking it he was seized with ] tint same spasm" and convulsions winch had developed themselves In the other cases, jiuring the paroxysms site knelt by linn aud tended Mm assiduously, paving no less i attention to the weal of his *oul than to the wel- j lure of Ills bodv, and exhorting him to "look to Jesus" to "pnt his trust In the Lamb.'' to "pre pare I'lumblv for death," Ac., interceding lor him, meanwhile, at the heavenly throne, in a most | edifying and exemplary manner. Dr. Cotton was sent for. but arrived too late. He found Mr. Oar land dead and Mrs. Lamb watching over tho body. MRS. I.A11II ARRESTED. After this It was impossible that no legal pro ceedings should be Instituted, and on the vifltli ol August Mrs. Lamb was arrested, upon the affidavit of James W. Ottman, who accused her of having ? caused the death ol 11 oval Garland, Irene Ottman and lier own two children, l>an and Sarah Lamb, on the 6th or September she was rulljr committed for triai, her attorneys waiving an examination. The hod es ot these four persons, us well as that of her Husband, were at once exhumed, and the stomach and other organs of each removed and submitted to chemical analysis. The results or nil these tests were the FINDING OF STRYCHNINE in all the bodli s save that of Mr. Lamb, from five to six grains being discovered in each. Search biint! made In Mrs. Lamb's cottage, among her bottles and vials was louud one containing extract ol sarsaparilia, in which the same deadly poison was largely mixed, it was oulv natural to expect that alter the down jail of this idol ol the country side those u 1)0 had been the waauiestof her supporters and tli Most lavish oi the sympathizers should go over 1 to the opposite extreme and find in trifles light as I uir, which before had hardly been noticed, contlr I mation strong of the uniuppv woman's guilt. Her numerous charitable deeds, the; unswearlng as- | | slduity with which sne had always nursed the sick, i all these were now regarded as parts of a deep I laid and devilish plot to satisfy the cravings or a | morbid and desperate heart for the lileblood of victims. I Amid all this babble or scandalous tongues It was not long ere theories accounting lor her crimes presented themselves. It is believed. *o tar us human reason can go towards unravelling a secret, the clew to which Is locked within her own bosom, that Mrs. Lamb made away with her husband and children in order to secure the lamlly property a* tier own, it being known that sne had had some difference with her husband during Ills lifetime as to its division, which ended In Ins giving her some two hundred dollars to settle the dispute. Mrs. Oilman's death Is ascribed to a desire and hope on the part of Mrs. Lamb to succecd her as the hea I of Mr. ottman a liunilv. The poisoning of Mr. Garland is more difficult to account lor, but it Is believed that he had offended her?as be had several marriageable women in the neighborhood, being somewhat weak-minded In the matter of women?by matri monial proposals, and she took his life by way of revenge for what she considered an insult. A SAD ACCIDENT, A hailing Party (apiltfd and Two of Their Number Drowned. At half past six o'clock last evening five men?Hubert Davis, aged twenty-Mur, living at the corner of Twenty-first street and Third avenue; William swift and John Jones, euipioved on the steamship Minnesota; John Ilea vans, ol Ml Washington street, and John ( rouses, of OS Leroy street?went out sailing from the loot of Horatio street in a small boat, and when afcout two hundred vards irom shore were all thrown In'o the water by the capsizing of the boat.

A Charming Sabbath in tha Early Bummer Few Yorker* in the Pnrsait of Happi new?The Pleasure Excursion* and the Patron* of the Park. A day of exquisite Summer beauty dawned yes terday morning on the metropolis, more enjoyable In almost every way than could reasonably be ex pected at this season of the year, though all that is lovely in light and atmosphere is poetically at tributed to Bummer weather. The sky was clear and charmingly blue, unflecked over all its vast ex panse, from zenith to horizon, by ever so small a cloud. Through Its ambient depths eye and im agination alike could soar away into tliat Luclil interspace of world and world, Where never creeps a cloud, nor move* a wind, Nur.ever falls the least white star of snow, Nor ever lowest roll of thunder moans. Nor sound of human sorrow mounts to mar The sacred, everlasting calm. But the most marked, pleasant feature of the day, was the cool temperature that prevailed throughout, for even at two o'clock, when the sun's rays were most ardent, there was a wind stirring that gratefully relieved his warmth of a power that would have been otherwise Intolerable, in the early morning the air was almost chilly, and the influence of the cool night just passed had its effect on the whole day. Tills, for the first Sunday In Juue, the month WM.V TORRID HEAT THREATEN? the great city as surely as December bears its portent of coming snows, was something quite un looked for, and, being accepted as a benlson from the weather god, was eagerly and largely enjoyed. No one who had any desire to attend divine wor ship felt any symptom of repugnance to a couple of hours of Immobile attention in a pew, and the consequence was that the churches were very well attended. And when the congregations were dis missed to their homes and dinners the real pageant of the Sabbath of civilization was opened. The dis play of Summer fashions was unusually brilliant and varied, and it wus quite extensive withal, for almost everybody who meais to have new Sum mer-style clothing had it yesterday. And so the avenues and streets up town presented quite a fascinating appearance during the meridian hour, unsurpassed, probably, by the display, on a similar occasion, by the capital of any of the grandest na tions of the world, not excepting Paris, in THB PALMY HAYS OK L'lMPRRATKICK; and when the early hours of the afternoon had rolled around the gala aspect of our Sabbath was fully inaugurated. By all the lines of travel up and down and across the city, and by pleasure steamers and ferryboats to circumjacent towns, there was a grand parade of the life, the Industry, the taste, the pride and the abandon of a commu nity of 1,000,000 people. The Sunday excursion programme was long ana varied, including trips by steamer to l.ong Branch. Keyport, Glen Cove, New Rochelle, Ncwburg, West Point, Shady Side, Pleasant Valley and Fort Lee, and all the muny routes were largely patronized bv crowds eager lor relaxation, fresh air and charming scenery. And the Fishing Banks, too, had a large quota of pat rons, armed with "bob, line and sinker," who went out to light and take captive the FINNY DENIZENS OF TOE SEA. The regular day boats to Staten Island and Har lem were filled during the afternoon with pleasure seekers. The first were intent on strolling over the wooded hills of Aquehonga and gazi ng away on the lovely panorama that stretches seaward from the circling arms of the glorious bay, and the last sought the sylvan shades bf High Bridge, the pictnresque Harlem River and tho beer

gardens ol bucolic Westchester. And still, alter all these had gone, and while they were going, there were |thousanus of patrons left lor Contral Park and the public re sorts In the upper portion or the city. They streamed along the avenues afoot, in horse cars and in ornate and stylish equipages, each as de voted as the other to the attainment of the third condition guaranteed them by the constitution? "the pursuit of happiness." TOE PARK WAS GLORIOUS In the rlcli fulness or Its beauties and radiant with rich land and waterscape. The roliage ol the trees wus vivid in the newness of its emerald tints; the vast lawns rolled away for a thousand yards brilliant with the green carpet of sort, deep grass, the roads were smooth aud free from dust, the walks clean, undulating, meandering and plcasautly shaded, aud the waters of the lakelets gleamed with million on million of rlnpling flashes as the light winds caught their sunace up to the sheen ol the sunlit air. The walks, the drives, the arbors, the boats, the swings, the shaded seats aud chairs, tho bowers and CAVERNOUS NOOKS AMONG TOE ROCKS were teeming with life in its most cheering as pect?humanity relieved of the curse ol toil and in the voluntary enjoyment of leisure. Of course the mall and the terrace, with the new and beuu tiful llethesda fountain, were the chosen spots, as they always have been and always will be. Like the aUirnedaa of the Spanish cities, these are the saun tering and lounging spois where everybody goes to see -who Is out, and where, as a consequence, everybody Is to be seen. Lovers or nature here flnd grand umbrageous trees, hill, lawn, dell and water view to greet their eyes and soothe their fancies; the admirer of art may con the bronze "Indian Hunter," the Shakespeare statue, the heroic proportions of the Scott mem orial or the sculpturesque beauties of the alto relievos on the terrace, or the newly-posed angel that tops the grand fountain. Aud Inquisitive hu manity may study itself in almost all its phases. And so the Saboath passed yesterday with oppor tunities and favorable conditions tor' the gratifica tion or all tastes, and the way in wnich metropol itans spent the day shows how well they can ap preciate a pleasant summer Sunday.
