THE CENTRAL PARK. Vninvitmg as appeared the prospect of a promenade In Ike Oentral Park yesterday, that now favorite resort of Mr citiiens waa visited during the day by hardly lees ban ten thousand persons. This Is the season at which fbe Park appears In all its attractive beauty, and It would aeem from toe numbers that went there yesterday, 4eaptte an overcast sky and the threatening aspect of the weather, that the toil wrrn mechanic and laborer were determined to take advantage of the benefit which the Park is intended to afford, while now an opportunity is given and before the summer has passed away. Among Um visiters to the Park during the day and during tho paat week were great numbers of our country cousins, who came to see the '*blg ship," and availed themselves if the chance of seeing New York's great Park at the use time, thus "killing two birds with one stone." *K?ani?k *Ka Dnwb an/4 mn*A aatnnitKa.l am every aide. Uncle Josh lamented that the "Ramble" was thrown away upon such an object as that to which It Is devoted, when it would make such a fine potato hill. His wife Jemima was sorely grieved that the "Promenade" Has dedicated to so useless purposes, when it would make such a splendid cow pasture, or a place to raise garden tuff on; to all of which the daughter Sally Ann would ro)ota, "What a beautiful place to raise ducks and geese the 'skating pond' would be," the while colloquy ending with commentaries on the wasteful extravagance of city folks. Many marked improvements are now noticeable In the Park. A number of " two-wheeled squirts" are employed In sprinkling the drives with water, which, while it detracts from the beauty of a dry, hard road, adds much to the comrort of those on foot and in vehicles in allaying the dust. Drinking hydrants have been plaoed at convenient distances along the roads, and the paths in the ?' Ramble" and elsewhere have been famished with cosy chairs and setters, upon which the weary stroller can rest his tired limbs. For the benefit of those who take an Interest In the wans, we would here state that the three survivors are In a thriving condition,and during yesterday were prominent objtcla of attraction to the thousands who vtBited the Park. Several persons were apprehended (luring the day fcr feeding them. but, pleading innocence of the new regulation, were discharged. The Central Park managers wish it anderstood by the public that no article of food or othor substance is to be given or thrown to the birds. A favorite spot with the visitsrs^after wandering through the shady paths of the " Ramble." is " Vista Rock,'' upon which the bell tower is erected. Prom this Mint a One view is had of the whole Park, as It lies spread Before the beholder with all its rustic scenery. Directly beneath is the " Ramble,'' and an occasional glimpse of a bonnet, or the flutter of a dress U the foliage, point out to the spectator where the pleasure seekers are strolling In this Elysian retreat. Further on are the "Promenade" and the broad drives, up and down which numbers of vehicles are moving; and still further on is the city, taking Its weokly nap, its qutot disturbed only by the chimes of bells, which fall with a sweet cadence upon tho ear and[mingle pleasantly with the soun Is of nature hoard In the rural retreats of the Pork. That the Central Park i? an object of attraction to Strangers in our city is shown by the fact that upon the posts, crossbeams and woodwork generally of the bell tower a vast number of names have been lns:ribed, under many of which are given the residences of tho writers, showing that not a few visiters to the Park arc flrom the most distant States in the Union. During yesterday additional interest was given to the neighborhood of "Vista Rock," from which Mm masts and rigging of Um Great Utwni oosld be distinctly sren. About four o'clock she was observed to move lowly up the river, and on being hauled out Into the stream a magnificent view was given of her down to the waiFt, beneath which line the intervening houses conhor hull Tbe day at tb? Park passed off without any Incident occurring to mar its harmony or pleasure, and with tho excep tion of the matter referred to in connection with tho swan*, and two am-ste which were made early in the morning fbr disorderly conduct, the police had no o-va ion to>*Hi'rl their authority. The promptness with which all disorderly demonstrations are quelled baa a<l<ItJ much to the popularity of the rark with quiet and order loving citizens, and the police deserve much credit on this account. No attempt was made during the day?m announcod some time since?to have tent preaching near the rark apen tbe immorality of Hunday amuwment. The great number i f visiters to the I'ark every Sunday would seem to have disheartened the Sabbatarian fanatics. JONES' WOOD. Bunng the whole of yeaterday the threatening signs of the heavens seemed to fcrsehatlow a thorough wet day, bat the refreshing breexe bore off tbe heavily laden cloads to some other parts, as the little rain that did tell was scarcely enongh to wet the leave* of the trees, and although the appearanre of tbe weather deterred many from seeking fresh air, yet those wbo did so were not ?ery much put out by the weather. The scene at Jones' Wood was a sure sign that at least several of our cltisens were not to be kept at home by the mere sign of wet. Over two thousand persons took advantage of this rural looking resort, and seemed determined to enjoy themselves, "rain or shine." The only nuisance connected with tbe weather was, that It would do neither one nor the other. The olouda would not let tbe sun thine, nor would they discharge their oontonts, but kept up spittle spitting kind of M1 should like to, but dare not" sort sf shower. The ears of tbe Second and Third Avenue Railroads wer< very fairly laden during tbe early part of the afternoon with people,bound for Jones' Wood. On arriving at hiity sixth itreet tboae of the passengers wbo bad made up their mmd* for a stroll through this wood led the cars an t proceeded In an easterly direction to First aTeoue, on which ift tbe entrance to the grounds. AH along ||| road from the car* to this place might be seen kuiIi and booths erecU-d Tor the sale of fruit, "freah lager, very questionable looking segara, cakea, caodiss, ham. In aand wiefces and otherwise, lemon aoda,loe cream, (scarcely wasted), lemonade, and the curloualy ahaped 'pretzeland also might be observed the boya with tar gets, offering to allow you to Ore with a apring gu? at "a rent a shot,' and others wlfti a board, on which were severs! nails and a large knife, and at which you were Invited to pitch a Dumber ut rings for the Ww charge uf a tent each. Aii along the route from the cart crowds of persons (early all uf whom, If oar ajriculara did not dec. spoke in a decidedly Teutonic tongue) were observed making tliPir way towards a gate on the left hauj si lr of lint avenue, and toward* which we, with the other*, beiit our steps On our arrival we noticed tliat tin- t k< t I" (tu which generally Is kU\ii .ne.1 a ii?r?-?li*? ng Orherus who demands thr |?r < e or a<imi s?>a) ?*re now i nipty, p'alnly ahowing to us that th.-rs waa n. charjre to be made, and that the gronnda were open to thr f.ubr,, "fr ' This seemed to l><-the entrance for (? !.? trtaas, as we noticed at a gate farther north aeveral ear tiages were, at the tiaae we entered, also passing into Uh grounds IT. repression that a stronger would hare on f.rst vl i ing thia spot would be that he was ?odd*uly transported many miles into the country, fur thr foliage (*the tre.-? un der ? i ' h In baa to pass be tig thick and dcn">-,he in ?lii eaaily imagine hlir*clf| Tor a few momenta in use ol tlx backwoods of a part laNy cleared farm In a few mi miles he bower, r emergt* on to an open glade, where h* iw? tl>? he is ?trtl in tbo region of civili/?t >n, If ">rh an opinio can be fOrwd by s<w>lng a large number of |x>rs.>nf g.ti vr ed together Beaeath the trees yesterday we nollce< " " I ftunilt ulrnlr I^rllna ?Kn soomivl tO nr.?f*-r I eoM dinner Id tbe open air to'a warm ona Id the cloael] hut up rooma of (Ii? city Seeing that the people who were continually aTlrit ( were making tbeir way in a particular direct *1, we rtn U?e name, and the Drat object ?f ? ho..t where the b'in<rjr could be re( ,1*1 with a .>*.1 "oyater <> the half b"ll Nut flar fr^m th * booth wo oba-rred Ikncifully built plac?- Tor tartetjabouting with Um ajiriii (Tin* *> much In rogue ar g nr <j?rmi,0 follow cil mi The form of the 4tm c. whiah tbe Urgeta wt la Ml nigh hare be?n UA^n for a porcelain towei or moaqoc, or citadel, at It wonld hare auited fo ?lth?r. the upper portion* of on* part beuig deri.WI oriental, while th'*# of an lher Ivre reaea>i.l?no lothepinDaclath.it anrmounta Cbeerer ehurnVamt third had mora of a oaatellated appearance At the let hand ode of thin tower aat a aallor on what we preaum* to he a barrel of grog, and holding in hla mouth a pip with a Ion* ?trm, the bowl of which a~ mod to be quite Mark for the would be aportaman On the .p^it* aid waa a repreaentatloa of the aon of William TaJI, with rentable apple on hla bead, and many Mrvma tried t ei?Vlate the graat patriot In endeavoring In hit the appl m wnWiut hurting the boy a head To jodga br tha phya ognowiy of tbe repreaantaUre of the ohjar.t of UeaW tarkarln rengeanoe ?nm? of the markamen were ant fortuaau, for om of tbe erca of tbe poor IIU?a fellow ha IM entireip put oat, whlW other portion? of tha baa I . | E E bore marks of violence. Every one who wilhel might try his skill on either the tower, the sailor or the apple for the low charge of " two cents," for so the sign overhead told ua. A sbcrt distance from thla wai a bowling alley, whero any who wished to exercise the muscle of their arms by throwing a heavy ball could do so lor the nominal sum of "one cent for each ball that is rolled.'* The next booth was for the rale of baa sandwiches, and inevitable, Irresistible lager. Judglcg by the patronage thla booth received, we were led to believe that the visiters, although they willingly stood a remote chanca of being wet without, held an opinion that to be dry within waa far mora dif agreeable. From tins point a view of the back of .the Janes' Wood Hotel might be had, and its white walls had far torn a disagreeable aspect. At the back of this hotel a platform had been built for purposes of a more secular kind than are usually, indulged in on Sunday ; but m many ladies seemed to eujo'y being rather elevate 1 above their fellows, the gentlemen were earnestly entreated by a written notice "not to smoke upon the platlorm," and in almost all cases this request waa respected. By the side of the steps lead ,ng to and from this platform was a stall for the sale of tpice nuts, and many a gallant young man treated nis fair companion to a measure of these little niceties. On the river side of the platform was a booth for the dispensation of French confectionary, against the pillars of which we noticed show cards informing all whom it might concern that the occupier sold "Sandwiches, ice cream, segars.Isger and coBee," *bich,as they asserted, "they could warrant pure, aa they always eround it themselves." Near this spot was a gymnasium, and hundreds during the afternoon availed themselves of this opportunity or improving their muscular developoment by climbing poles, swinging by their hands, raising themselves bodily from the ground by lie power of their arms, &c., Ac. In this same neighborhood were numbers amusing themselves by scnppmg, boat scops being erected for the purpose, and as they were put in motion by the occupants hauling a rope attached to the top of the frame to which the scup was hung, the exercise waa very beneficial, as the rapid passage through the atr was also pleasant. Attached to this was a " round about" for the amusement of children, and many were they who took advantage of ibis harmless piece of enjoyment. Wo next noticed a eamera-obscura, at the entrance of which two men very eagerly invited all who paaMd by to insjiect, as they termed it, the " the moet finest wonder of art," and all they charged was ten cenu. Behind thts camera were figures of Indians and negroes, with each a hole in its stomach, to which a bag was attached behind. A boy was stationed as a guard over these wooden effigies, but as he was bent on making money, he offered to all who paswd him the use of " nine India rubber balls for three cent*," and If you could put the wkole of the nine Into the bag he generously offered to give you a quarter of a dollar as a mark of his estimation of your practical skill. Another lager bier booth next attracted our attention, as a platform gallery was erected In connection therewith, and was built over the bank of the river; and persons here could enjoy their lager .and tho rufreahing breeze at the some time. A second and larger two cent target establishment next caught our gaze. At this there were more objects to practise upon than at the other, for here a revolving windmill, having a bull's eye at the end of each sail, a wild tiger with a bull's eye on his bade, an egg hungup by a string and to be shut at while swinging, a wizard throwing his pack of cards from hand to hand over his head, were offered as marks for competition, as well as Tells son, the sailor's pipe, and the towers in the centre. Adjoining this establishment waa a museum, In which almost all the animals that entered the ark were to be seen in a small booth about ten feet square, besides a glorious representation of the Kussian war, Ac., fcc., "for the small charge of ten cents." Next to the museum was a booth for the further dispensation of the cooling lager, which was fallowed by another, and a third and fourth Notwithstanding there were so many places where the drink could be obtained, we are happy to state tba'. not one person waa observed even in the slightest degree the worse for liquor, much less intoxicated ; nor was a disorderly person to be seen among the whole company. Behind these booths charming view of the river could be obtained for a long distance, both up and down, and on the opposite shores could be observed the various reformatory and other Institutions belonging to the city, and situated on Blackwell's Island. We noticed one female sealed on a rock by the side of the river, looking on very complacently at two men who were engaged In fiahing with line and rod. We were sorry to observe that a billiard saloon wm in full operation on the ground, and although they charged an extra five cents per game on tho Sunday, it did not deter a large number from engaging in it. There was a prom.uent notice in tho room that no betting woull be allowed; but we would rather have seen the establishment closed up onlirclyon this day,al.hough we were informed that more business was done ou Sunday than ou any other three days in the week. There were several persouB on tho grounds who supplied bouquets and baskets of choice (lowers, at a remark ably luw price, to all who wished to have them. lag young men would purchase those preUy articles ana tuuko presents to the fair damsels whom tbey bad been " parking" amid the trees. After Laving thoroughly tired themselves out by roaming about the grounds, the visiters returned to the City by means of the city railroads, and also by the Kleamboat* which call ut tbo pier that is built close to the bole I, for the convenience of those who prefer that moans of trarel. We may safely state that those who visited Jones' Wood yestrrday might have spent the day .n afar worse manner than they did. CONRAD'S PARK. The scenes in, at and round about this park were very interesting yesterday. Despite of tho cloudy and threatening state of the weather, the beauties of the vicinity, dressed in the fall display of their Sunday finery, turned out in their bewitching and elegant styls. The majority of these were ladies from Holland and other points of "faderlaad, 'but they were none the Ices attractive because of their jolly rotundity. During the earlier part of the morning there were a number of loungers to be seen about the park, none of whom were remarkable for lbs beauty or symmetry ot their external decorations. Soma were puffing the "light Havana, ' or rather a baas substitute for that fragrant weed, wbils others cod Un led themselves with stumpy "dudhecna," that had evidently Been service enough in tbeir Jay and generation. Of conrse there tu sot a single drop of lager on band. The ch;mlng of tho merry church bells which summoned the devout to their orlsona drew forth whole troops of fairy forma, tripping their cheerful way to thrir alLara and their bead*. The lazy idler*, with their lobarco and smoke, (oon dwindled away before the array of glittering ftilrlM that invaded the Park. The parks of the city, conveniently aituated in the very heart of tU? metropolis, may well lake credit to themaelvea for tbeli beauty and their myriads of gay admirers; but let It b? known onto all men that Conrad's Park, al though ft suburban retreat, Is by no means behind any of Its more favored sisters In point of attractiveness or the concourse of IU visiters. Its charming renery cannot be surpassed. It is as delightfully situal ed as any park In tbc city, and the < fair women an<i brave men" of Its neighborhood have as murh reason U be proud of its beauties as are our enthusiastic friends o oar own Central Park. Of course we institute no com parlsoo, and none is meant; we only give unto Cesar thai which Is Cwsar's. Had It not been for the dark and glue my state of the atmosphere, there can bs(no doubt bai that thousands would yesterday have revelled amid th< cooling breeses of tbe Park. As It wss. there wss i goodly number present; but from tbe numerous glancei made by the ladies at the frowning clouds,it was evident that their hearts were ill at ease for the safety of theii bonnets and tbetr silks, and their psomenade was there r-re curia led of its fair proportions. As a general thini the Park Is a regular resort of the wearied artisan anc itls family. Alter a long week of continuous toll they al look to Sunrtsy M a day of relaxation, rocreatlon anc rest, and when the religious duties of tbe day are ovei i thousands of young and old folks may be here seen inno cently enjoying tbe sweet breezes of summer, and mm i sling together in those affectionate relations of friend!] fellowship better known to the poor than to aoybodj else. The latest Psrlsian hooks of fluhi?n sre certainly no i unknown to the denirens of this vicinity At least thi milliners are up to their work.fbr mai ten and matron swi-etheart and wife, who yesterday strcllod through Oon rad s Park, were dressed in s style that would not ?hsnrv the irnst bio m*in t>elle of our princely svenues.

There would have been some stone in commit down with a hearty shower of rain In a straightforward and decent manner, but to havs , acted mh hu did yesterday, cootmually threatening with out raining, was, to say the least of it, an extremely ' shabby trick. Undoubtedly Mr. Merriam agrees with as, u do all the ladies who visited aa well as those who were prevented from being present at the Park yesterday. We hope that old Pluvius will take a note of this, and not perpetrate such inconsistencies in future. THE ELY8IAN FIELDS. TBS ATLANTIC 0 ARDKN8?BABIK8 AND WIND?STBTL'S CATS?PICNICS UNDEB IMBK1LLA8, HTC., ?TC. We were favored yesterday with a blustering, gusty wind, a sky obscured by masses of leaden clouds, and a tew slight sprinklings of rain?in place of brilliant sunshine, a sky which rivalled the famed ethereal bluenoss of that of Italy, and a breeze just strong enough to blow aside the wavy tresses of the belles or Manhattan, whose charms aro acknowledged to be nnri vailed, even among the dark eyed daughters of the land once so famous for the arts and scicnces. It was not exactly the sort of day we should havs chosen for a picnic party or a pleasure excursion of any kind; but being anxious to know how many there were in this great city who held a contrary opinion, we crossed over by the Canal street ferry to Hoboken. The ferry boat was tolerably well filled with fresh air seekers?at least we could not see what else thoy went for?and fresh air they certainly had in abundance. The wearers of pantaloons bad their time quite taken up with hold ing on to their hats, which evinced an extraordinary dosire to emulate the feats of some fwallows which were skimming over the water; bonnet strings and shawls were atream ing gaily in the wind, while their wearers, with many a laugh and blush, held refractory hoops down, or held on with a tenacious grasp to the babies' clothes, with which the high wind was taking great liberties. Atlantic Garden, beius close bv the ferry house, was the stomiins place 0/ most of them, where they regaled themselves with Little Neck claims, chowder aud lager bier. About flfty Crsons were there at the time we visltod it. They all >ked somewhat like the day itself?damp and comfort less; a few tried to get up a little excitement by shooting at target, but it was uo use- everybody was gloomy ? they missed the sunshine and the crowd which aro always there wben the weather is pleasant. The next place of any account Is Otto Garden. Here tbey have theatrical performances anl concerts during the week. Yesterday we found two little girls eating ioe cream in ths orchestra, and about thirty people sitting in the garden regaling themselves with lager bier and an unlimited supply of wild. Here, as at the Atlantic Garden, everybody evidently missed something. Passing along to thai classic spot, so dear to the hearts of our base ball playing community, viz: the Elysiao Fields, we met parties of twos asd threes hurrying along to the ferry, evidently aflraid the rain would Be setting in before tbey reached the boats. At Sybil's Cave we found throe small biyn fkrtng sumptuously on ice cream and soda water, while the darkey waiter looked ap and down the road for the customers who make that their resting plaoe, and, while refreshing the Inner man, enjoy a fine view of the river and shipping. A few persons were standing on the bank gazing at the Great Eastern, of which a One view was aQorded from that spot. Oao enthusiastic individual bad sUtioned himself at the end of the ito*e pier, which has been built to protect the yachts lying there, and was absorbed In Bab tng. Bis success was nothing to boast of while we stood watching him. At the Klyslaa Fields, Instead of hearing the sounds of mirth and pleasure seekers, our ears were saluted with a ghostly sort of wail, dying away every now and then into a low, deep hum, canted by the wind as it whistled through the branchus of the trees, and tossed them restlessly to and fro. The river was mu<!dy and turbid, while showers of spray were cast on those who were foolish enough to venture too near the water. About one hundred visiters were scattered about, all carrying umbrellas, not a few of them had a genuine family basket, and it was not a little amusing to watch a Dutch man, with his wife and children, seat themselves on the damp grass, beneath the shelter of an outrageously large and blue umbrella, and proceed, In the jollient and most unconcerned manner imaginable, to devour the contents ui Hit'.)

Few people, however, dl<l more yeater lay that just tAr a look around, and then turn their fkoea homewards. We doubt whether the man with the weighir?k machine Isuad ri.any customer*, or the dealers in flower*, applea, cakes, Icc crcara, lemonade, he , Ac , had as much to do as they could attend to. Judging, nomevrr, from what we saw. yesterday must have beon anything but a profitable one to any or th<m, as the visiter* to Boboken were but few, and of these but a small number found their way an far as the Dysian Field* 8TATEN ISLAND. WHAT ONE 8E*8 Til ERE ON SUNDAY. Any notice of the various pi ices of Sunday resort In the vicinity of the great metropolis would be very incomplete without a reference to Staten Island. This Island, abounding In beautiful and varied country scenery, has beoom so popular that on .Sunday It Is found neceasary to run I four boat* to and from the city?one every half hour?to accommodate the numbers who make the Island a place of r^-t and recreation after the labors ol tho week An additional attracts is offered here In the trip down the bay, this being a pleasure of which our own citizeos never tire, while to the stranger It Is tnvarlaby a source ofstirpr.se and delight. Yesterday being cool and windy, with a threatening of rain, the boat' were not crowded as is usually the ease on a summer Sunday: still there were quite a number who were not to be debarred from their day's enjoyment by this tr.fling unpropitlouancM on the part of the elements. l eaving New Tork In the ferry boat at the Battery, we soon reach the first or Quarantine landing, large numiaswa ik? tut** at thii nlAM th?rA h# in* a imnulir resort here known u PAVILION BILL. Al the boat goes but a mile further, it la quits as plea ant for one who has no definite object in view except bis own amusement to get off here and walk the remaining distance. The groat majority of the crowd are wending their way towards rarllioa Hill, and the slight ftttigue attending its ascent Is more than repaid on reaching its summit. From the little tower on I top of the Pavilion li nee a fiae view may be bad of New York, surrounded by its satellites of adjacent cities, and of the magnificent bay,dotted with craft of every descrtp i tion, at reel and in motion, while, looking the other way. past forts Hare !ton and iMamood, one sees where sky sa l water seem t- meet. Nearer at band, and on the island, sre the villages of Tompklnsvllle?a place not unknown to fame?and Ckstleton JwUlle the rich and varied scenery . on every hand, and the numerous and tasteful private re 1 sidences. olfcr a pleasing prospect. In the grounds of tbo Pavilion House t are various appliances for the comfor*. and arause. ment of tb<?e who resort there. Revolving swings, shotting alleys horses, resembling Is all respects, save f size and soli 1 contents, the famous one of Troy, and which are mounted by very youthrul and ioexperienr.-d < ., i,? . trians without fear. All tbeee are put to a practical use by the children at least, while the parents cither join in the s?ort or look on approvingly, but watchfully. Every I one seems to be enjoy lug blm or herself, and everything is peaceable and order! v ' leaving Pavilion nil', we descend to the landing again, k and here lake what is known as Hay strset (the Mateo I Islanders may not know how much better Bay road would sound), for the other places of resort. Tbis road, as Its 1 i ame lapliet, runs along by the water, and In the absence ' of dust would be very pl< 'sant.

Tbla beautiful suburb, one of the summer retreats or Brooklysitee for a few years past, Is becoming more and more a tavorite resort of the tolling crowds of ibis city. WlthStaten Island it preaants no points of comparison, :ith*r?fnr? 'mnimrm intn rivalry with itl BUtfiOt beauties, while, at the same tine, 1U attraction* being of a different order, possess a faacination of their own, confessed and accepted. With Jones' Wood and Conrad's Park and lloboken, ' the happy" of other days, it would not have even a chance, and yet Sunday after Sunday crowds fill "the cars," the connecting link between Brooklyn and this Arcadia or young Drooklynites. East New Tork proper lies some five miles east of the Fulton ferry, and cars start thereto on each arrival of a boat. It has latterly attracted the attention cf the polioe, no on accouat of any rowdyism occurring there, but upon the same principle which presents the necessity of sending police to the scene of a peaceful pienic; not to pro serve order among the revellers, but to secure them from chance annoyance of any stray rowdies that, like birds of prey, might be attracted by the smell of a feast There is ue one particular attraction at East New Tork to compensate for a drive there. On the oontrary, when the cars halt, the uninitiated?that is, all who have not been already there?who may fail to read this notice might eiclaim, "What's to be seen here r" Natural enougn that, for there is no sound of tnusic breaking upon the ear. Dear music that can touch Beyond all elfe the soul that loves it much. No park from out whose umbrageous shadows gleam brightly forth glimpses of rustic hostelry, where lager bier and ice cream may be enjoyed ad libitum. No wide spreading tree?a sequestered nook With Bests beneath its shade, For talking age and whispering lovers made. None of these attractions meet the eye or ear, and hence the question, what is to be seen ? A little farther on, patient reader, and a pleasant stroll presents to your eye beautiful vistas of ample landscape, gleaming now in ull the rich hues of a golden harvest, dotted here and there with beautiful villas, the homes of the happy proprietors of these cereal stores which spread out on every side. Away and beyond this lovely scene rise the dark tops or the trees which skirt tho view, affording a delightful setting to the picture upon which the sua from the distant west has cast a golden coloring, and beyond tbe girdle of woodland, but out of Bight and hearing, stretches tlie blue Atlantic. Too sanguine reader, learn that the Atlantic la some (bur miles off, and you must again commit yourself to these dreadful cars, or else with more like, now in the heyday of youth, and buoyancy of spirits, if you are oat early, you dive through tbe oool and shady walks which, for part of tho way, at all events, invito you onward. Thero are other attractions; within a mile and a half are the Water Works of Ridgewood, whence Brooklyn la supplied with water, and wnieh la a favorite place of inspection. To those who are fond of meditating among tbe tomba, they have the beautiful anil picturesque cemeteries of the Kyergrtens and Cypress Hill*, through whose glades they may wander at will. These, and the long and beautiful and cheap drives, present many rinducenienta to the cabined, cribbed, confined denizens of New York to seek, ou each occurrence of the Sabbath day, "fresh fields and pastures green." * HIGH BRIDGE AND VICINITY. Crowded aa the neighborhood about High Bridge usually is during the week, by private picnica and pleaaure seekers, or those who are led there hy the world wide reputation of the bridge, yet It presents a tame appoar UUIV w UCU VVUi^NllVU WIMI IUV nuvuMHiua ? iiv |V IHWl V on a Sunday. Notwithstanding the many other placet of Interest about New York, High Bridge stands without a rival, and will always attract crowds, even when other places have lost their Interest In the publlo mind, centred as it is among hills and valleys, and surrounded with so many cosy little pUoes, where the tired and hungry can ait down in private and unpack the basket that always accompanics groups of throe or more. It is only those people Who are kept confined during the week in some close workshop, or perhaps tenement house, that can fully appresiate and enjoy the liberty of Sunday. It is to them a sort or saTety vaiTe, and the froo and untainted air they h*M(hA ?? tiwtav. OUtHl^A !>? ?"r me UcTO, DU to last them tor the remainder of the week, and a trip up the Harlem river as far as High Bridge, allows Uioae persons to lee enough of the country, and enjoy the pure air, to provs to them that such things do really exist. There are many ways of reaching Uigh Bridge, but the favorite way appears to be by the little steamers that run on the But river, and connect at Harlem with the steamers Emily, Tiger and Trumpeter. During the week the One steamers Sylvan drove and Sylvan Shore go to Harlem, but on Sunday they are withdrawn, and their place is filled by tug boats. Yesterday the steamboats <Jblv (mushier. 0. B. Friser. Junes A. Stevens and the Island Home wero plying between Harlem and INsck lip, stopping at Jones' Wood and other place*, to tako up deposit of iMMD|rrt; but owing to the very uncertain stale of tho weather, their dock* were nearly bare, and one could bare an entire bench to himself, If ho waa lazily Inclined. A/n-ofot of the weather, thero wm a general outcry yesterday about tho exceedingly tantalizing way In wbicb tbe rain waa threatening to cone down at any moment, and dcetroy the gay Sunday dresses of the people. It waa provoking to tbore who went out, because some of their friends did not go, and It was provoking to those who had remained at homo, because it did not rain, ^hpre would hare been m >re general satisfaction had ilVme down In torrents, for then all would have l? eu disapjiolnlcd, but as it waa. Ibose who had tbe courage to brave the element! had a most pleasant day. and enjoyed It all the more on account of the b<?ia and cars not being inconveniently crowded. Our reporter took a trip up the Harlem river, and topped at Uie principal places of interest on the way, but owing to the threatening aspect of the weather there wore but lew |>eople out. High Bridge appeared to be the only place where there appeared to be more than the usual number of people. Here there were about two hnndred, but owing to the way they were scattered there did net appear to be so great a number On a flno Punday the three boats are crowded from morning until night, and it Is by tbe thousands that you count the visiters, 1ml ye?ier<lsy the universal drwd of the wnalher made It a very easy task to count the number of people any great diatanc* fr m the city. There waa one very great feature of "Sunday in the suburbs'' that was wanting yesterday, and that was tbe great number of women and children that help to Oil tbe boat* an I >ars It ta not unusual to see a woman with three or four children with her. enjoying her weeklr allowance of holiday, and they fbrm a very Interesting feature too Wo feel sorry whenever any unfbrseen event, such as tbe clouds yeaterday,prevent* them taking lb' r little e*r irsion aft-r health, as we know that is not In their power to go again until they have gone through six more day* of toil and care. At McOoomb'a Dam, tbe flrst -topping place after leav Ing Harlem, there w?-re very f?w people and tbe hotel keepers and other-* depending upon visiters,tor a livelihood, locked as if they bad lost a friend, or inet with some very serious calamity. They burg over the bar, and lounged aboi.t the door; but, alas (Khello'a occupation was gone" for that day, and the only course they rould pursue was to imagine themselves resigned They are building th<- piers at the old dam for the new bridge that ta going to be built, and one i?

Tt.e absence ?f the intense beat of the sun. and the pleasant bre/ze that waa on the river, made the day a most delightful one; but again we have to refer to the weather, for although all seemed to be enjoying themselves, many were tbe fiancee cast at the aky and heavy dark clouds as they slowly passed overhead, and many anxious Inquiries were made of the Individuals who were supposed Ut be weatherwise. aa to what It waa going to do? However, there seeded to he but one opinion and Hint was that It was going to pour. Several persons did aot Isnd at all. but remained on board the boat and returned to tbe city .for roar of being caught In the storm. After leaving High Bridge, the boat goes to Tomlinson's Woods, a place on the left hand aide of the river, and what would be of a fine day a vi ry romantic spot to slop al, and we eerlainly recommend t to all plctiic parties, but yesterday It. loo, waa deserted, and tie proprietors at tbe various refreshment places bad to charge their empty coffers to the wea ther Morris's [M-k comes nett Is order, but It is rather of a nrlvate nature, and there were but few there Tbe MlklMbn landing, but the boat did not elop. a* the peaaengera to thai pMat were not fortbootnlne The final etopping pure la hat e Century lloune, and there th?> boat* remain for a ?hort time?long "no<i?h however, to allow peaeenger* to go up to the hotel and refre?li thcmaelve*. or take a "troll to the neighborhood fun lay week wai the flrit time that the boat ran to the Century Houae, bnt l hey will hereafter run there regularly.

One of the most characteristic phases of New York life Is the rest with which the tolling portion of the population enter into Sunday enjoyments, in spite of the efforts of the so-called Sabbath Committee, backed by an arbitrary and ntxtA.ai Unt Innal U> 1/ nan (ham ImmitMUl within lilt. wholesome brick walla. Persona who are accustomed to bard work through tbo week, and spend their Qighta, perhaps, In the ill-ventilated apartments of tenement housea, are apt to think that they sufficiently mortify the tlesh during tbo six working days, and, therefore, are not disposed to continue the depressing process on the one day act apart by the com mon consent of nearly all Christendom as a joyous holiday. And as Sunday excarsion trains are not in vogue in this country, it la no wonder that the facilitios which our two noble rivers, together with the spacious bay and the waters of the aound afford, ahould induce them to trek, in the innumerable delightful retreats with which sea and river coast are studded, that rcpoae and quiet enjoyment which were denied them in the noisy city. Accordingly, we And steamboat excursions among the cheapeat and most popular mcana whereby the aona and daughters of toil can cacape from the busy blve during the prevalence of the aummer beats, and " under the green wood tree" recruit their exhausted frame, and invigorate both body and mind for the labors of the coming week. Year after year Sunday excursions are on the increase; and perhapa during no former Beaaon have tbey been more in vogue than tbe present summer. That they tend to elevate tbo morals of tbo working classes tbe marked diminution of Sunday drunkenness and crime In genera) sufficiently demonstrates, though there are not wanting thoae who lay this purification of the public mannera to tbo account of preventing liquor from being Bold at the bara of drinking salopss, although everybody, the police included, knows that aa much liquor oan be had in these places by merely aittlnf at a table and calling for It. Yesterday morning opened rather raw and cloudy, and there waa a general expectation that it would rain throughout tbe day. Under each circumstances It was reasonable to auppoae that the excursion boats would not have anytb'ng like tho uaual numoer of passengers. It proved otherwise, however, for the threatened aspect or the weather seemed to have little or no offect in deterring intending excursion 1IU rrom incir couiempiaieu pleasure. awxiruiu^ I ly, at a comparatively early hour In tb? morning the several pier* on the North and East rivers, from which I the excursion boat* usually start, were cach filled with a joyous, cosmopolitan masa of people of both sexes and all conditions and ages, waiting for the boat that for a small Erlce, varying from twenty-live cents to fifty cent* per ead, was to convey them to tho scone of rural enjoyment. There was the hard listed mechanic, with his wifo and children; th? spruce clerk, done up in tho Jaunty style peculiar to tho genus; the staid matron, looking ttie very Impersonation of propriety; the blooming darnel, with (lushed cheeks and sickling eyes, anticipatory of fun anil frolic; tho crusty old bachelor, assuming a genial look for the nonce; the newly made Benedict, with hut blushing bride, and the Benedict expectant, with his sweetheart, talking soft nonsense, while tho prattle an.I merry pranks of childhood gave animation to the aceac, *n<1 aiirured plMtMll/ nf ii happv liny, notwithstanding the unpropltlous appearance or the skies. Among the boats that went on excursions were the following ? The Ceres left Catharine market slip at half jutst eight o'clock, with a goodly number of passengers, which were augmented at the loot of Spring street, and again at pier No. 4, North river. She then ?teamed down tho bay to Rocka?ay, Long Islaud, where the passengers enjoyod themselves in a variety of ways till towards evening, when she returned, landing her pMMOgsri at tho several piers she had called at In the morning. The Satellite started from Jersey City at half-past six o'clock, an 1 arrived ut the fuotuf Jsvstroet at seven, and subsequently called at the foot of Christopher street and Forty third street, taking In pastoogersateach place. She then proceeded up the Hudson to Kucklaad lake, calling at Yonkera, Hastings, Dobbs Ferry, Plcrmont. Nyark and Sing Ping, on each side of tho river. She was crowded with passengers, who spent an agreeable day at tho several places named, particularly those who had the good sense to visit tho romantic and beautiful acenerr of Rockland lake, whence it la needless to say most of th>' lee consumed to Mf York Is obtained.

Richard liavendam, keeper of a gmggcry at No. 46 Baxter street, was brought before Just.ee Urennan, at U>0 Lower Police Court, yesterday morning, on charge of having murdered a Ppan.ard, named Juan 'Jus tar mo, about a year ago. Mary O'Brien, a dw of the Fivo Pointa order, appeared as chief witness against the prisoner, and stated that on the night of tbs 30th of July, IMP, as she war. perambulating the streets, she met Gustariao, and by her persuasive arts indnced him to accompany her to the den of the prisoner, then located at No. 37 Baxter street. Whiln in her enmpanv tho fpanlard foolishly exhibited a large amount of m >ncy, and tho discovery being communicated to Bavendam, lbs latter proposed that they should rob tho stranger, knock him on the head and then turn h ira out of doors. Mary was nothing loth to the plot, and in company with a confederate, named Margaret Welsh, assisMd tho prisoner In disposing of their victim. Mary says that the Spaniard was clubbed, and after being robbed of all bis money wis thrown into an adjoining alleyway, where his dead body was found soon afterwards by the police. The informer, on being closely questioned, admitted that she was on bad terms with the prisoner, and from ber manner conveyed the impression that tbs complaint was made against liavendam more out of spleen than fVnm an* ln?r* nf ntilir? V<?r?rLhol<<iia tho ms* atralii thought It beat to commit U>c accuscl, and the witness* 8 too, until the matter could be more thoroughly jurcitU gated. Captain Dow ling and policcman Riordaa, of tfco Sixth precinct, who arrested the accused, (Ute that the evidence of Mary li partially corroborated by the records of the Coroner * Office. It aipnsrs that Coroner Jsckman t???M an inquest upon the body of tho deceased on the 31st of July, lsStt. when, according to tho testimony of policeman Sherlock, it was ahown that deceased was found in a sitting posture aim *t is the eia< t spot indicated by the prosecuting witnaHS Itoceased's pMfttH were found to be empty wfciofe was lingular, oon xlderlng be was a man of some means and well dressed. A t<ost mortem examination of the body wan made by Or. John Dearb. when, upon opening the chest, it was fouud that death bad be<-s caused by a rupture of one of tho small blood vessels of the heart at Its base.
