Vou may think it perfectly ioeiplicable how it ia that I should direct a communication to you from this place, at thia time, especially aa I oarer wiote to you from any place before. I will tell you how it ia. Two houra since, 1 arrived here in the cara, (four milea from Boston.) I am not in a atrange place, oroaa aumnier tour, but at hotnr; my wife and children are on their toura, or rather are quietly situated, at affartber rrm?ve from tha city, enjoying their periodical ruatication, and I ant alone. After finishing the buaineaa of the day in the city, at which I had remained laager than usual, staying a train or twa later than when in anticipation of meeting my wife and little one*. 1 thought 1 could not better amuse myself than by inking with me yowr Humid of to-day?for in that. )uu iwiprrw CTcrjiDuiK inirrriuag, irom tac m<w rvml sook or corner of creation to tbe very cent re of commerce and of the nation, from the nails of Congress and the hauUof the Californiaas, from the land of gold, aid, I had almost said, from the regions of glory. Moat richly hare I revelled in your sheet for the last two hoars. The UtralH has amused snd interested me, as giving scenes from a great variety of places, and hat suggested the thought of giving iou a little account of this place, which mar not M inappropriate or uninteresting to aotne of the readers of the world-wide circulated Htruld. Thia is not the place of f?acy balls, excepting the piayiag ball*, or stalling hawls of the children or ha hie?, when at honu), nor of cannon balls, although the Dying artillery are encamped near by, in anticipation of, day after to-morrow, joining in llie mourning |*gesnt, to take place cny of Boston, in honor of our most deeply lamented Taylor. This is not a watering place, but it la a place of water. The reservoir of the Cochituate is here, and a perfect and beautiful lake it is, surrounded mostly by high ground, crowned with beautiful rural and elegant dwellings. Thia ia not Caps Island, or Cape May, or mr other Cape, nor caa 1 give you any account of tu capes or capers of sny of the ladiea.

By minute investigation of the secou l?ry forma' ion of this State, we iind that at Springfield, where be trap range ia almost entirely brokm, the termilation of the Newark mountaina occurs. The ;reen stone ridges here, some of which are of conliderable elevation, take nearly a ?outh-western lirection about seventeen miles, and extend into he vicinity of Boundbrook; thence they take a lorthwest course, for a eon&iderable distance, to a otnt at Pluckemin, the second mountain taking he curvature of the first.
