After some remarks retgectl&c ocean steamships and seasickness, which by the wav he claims to have etc&ped save once tn the Mediterranean, he dwelt lorn short space 00 the cathedrals of England which he declared could never be equaled till we had once more £tk* religious fervor of the middle ages. He thinks unr natural scenery far surpasses, hat of the old world. Gladstone he complimented highly for the tclectnets of his language and appropriateness of is thought, but he thinks John Bright's speeches smell Jess of the \midnight oil'* han tbose of the great premier. He praised Spurgeon highly and gave some iUercstin;; illuhtnuions of the lutur'a Ktrong faith in prayer, In his opinion th$ French Republic is A SUCCESS. Germany's gran J universities received their ^hare of praise from him. Greece,-he said, is re- gaining its ancient spirit of freedom and. culture. He ypoke of the Holy Land very fedhi^iy, and shuwc.l how it was possible, by th« proposed cutting of canals, from the Mediterranean to tht; lied Sea, for Jerusalem to become the \joy of the Whole earth\ from the commercial im- portance that would thus be giveu it. His graphic descriptions ot Egypt, th* Pyramids, torrid IttJia, awakened China and that nation of hrtistn, Japan, were particularly flue. He closed by demanding the ttdmissiott of Chinu.se ticeompauied by their wives to our shores. A vote ot thanks was fittingly tendered tiim bv the audience and all departed highly pleased with the evening'* t-iit ertalu- rnent.

Few border townn are growing more rapidly than is Ti., at present. A new house is taoing up every week and I am told that the majority ot these are owned by the meu who occupy them. With the blight, of for«gn ownership removed there ,8 nothing to prevent progress when we consider our advantages and attractions.\ These are, 1, The splendid water power here, 2, Ti is the head of steamboat navi- gation, 3, It is a railroad junction, 4. It is a fine stock raising country. There is no reason why the Champlaiu Valley should not be famous as a wool region, 5, It is a great resort for tourists, 6 Its richness in historical associations. These are what make Mr. Cook feel that should he live to see three score and tejo years he will behold a place of 15,000 to 20,800 people. Tne speaker then went on to speak of the dangers incident to this growth, arising chiefly from the great floating population, the invariable concomitant of manufacturing towns and cities. This class, mostly virtually homeless, easily acquire bad habits, become loose in their morals and depraved in their taste* and soon corrupt the place they live iu if no effort is made by Christians to prevent it. As a means towards thwarting such an evil, Mr. Cook advocated a Law and Order league, such as is now in successful op- eration in Boston, Chicago and oth^r places. The need of the day is not more good laws bat the better execution of those we have, more fearlessness ou the part of legal executives and public officials and less dread of barn burning &c on the part of honest citizens. The Womeas Cbrlstaia Temperence Union he likewise commended, and spoke warmly in fr.vor of a Young Mens Chris- \tian Association combining a reading room and other wholesome attractions for the young men. He urged united christain effort above all things and closed with affirming his lack of denomi- nationalism and that no drunkard as such would inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. After the prelude, which be delivered, without standing Mr. Bake offered prayer. Mr. Cook then began his lecture on ' 'The Occident and Orient\ which was chiefly a recital of how man and things had im- pressed him during his recent tour around the globe. It was very interesting and instructive and was attentively listened to throughout. 'In our day*', said Mr, Cook, when the earth can be cireumnavi- gated.in 90 days, when a telegram can be sent around the globe six times in an hour, when it is impossible to move, scarcely, without every one knowing it OUR IJ:TTI:U. THE F1UIIT l-Oll THE MAYORALTY—-A CITY ON THE WATER—VERY HIOlI-Tl'NKD UAMBLKKS— A YOUXfJ WOMAN'S DOL- LAttS—GOSSIP. New York, September 25, 1834. Already the different political parties and factious in the Great Metropolis are agitating the question as to who shall be the liext Mayor. There are a multitude of candidates and a variety of \booms.\ In connection with the various factions I hear mentioned as possible nominees for Mayor such names as John Roach, William Dowd, Edward Cooper, An- drew li. Green, Henry Clausen, Hugh J. Grant, Oswald Ottendorter, M. J. M«H8emer. P. H. Dugvo, Frank Duffy and Joseph J. O'Donoghue. A very novel enterprise has been set on foot by a number of New York capi- talists. It is nothing more nor less than a project to estaHwh an ''America u Venice by the Sea*' at Coney Island* The idea is to drive piles in Sheepshead Hay ami erect thereon a large number of cottages for^us^ in the .Summer sea- son. I do not know f/hether the advo* cates of the enterprise will ever be able to carry this scheme into effect or not* but it is causing a great d<*al*of talk. <* A Coney Island hotel-keeper was lieard to observe: - • •'Something must be done to restore Joney Island's popularity, and it seems to me that the Venice scheme ia the thing that will do it. People would en- joy the novelty of living in houses which could mot be approached except with a boat. What jolly fun it would be for the ladies to step into their gondolas and go calling at the houses of their neigh- bors on pleasant afternoons!\ There is a great deel of gossip tn re- gard to a suit which lias been brought by Mr. Fred May against Mr. George Work, son of Mr. Frank Work, the wealthy banker and Wall Street opera- tor, for a gambling debt of $6,000, The game of poker ig played for money in nearly all of the clubs in the citv. The New York Press Clubb, of which the Kev. Henry Ward Beech er is a mem- ber, ia no exception to the rule. }fot long ago the Executive Committee of this organization forbade gambling in the rooms of the club, but the gamblers refused to obey the committee. The notorious Indian, Sitting, Buli, who made such a desperate fight in the Rocky Mountains a few years age, has been in New York for a few days past. He is one of the most sullen and unso- cial red-skins who ever came East to visit the white people. Sitting Bull can speak English, but he is an extremely hard individual to get into conversation with. Manv metropolitan newspaper reporters endeavored to interview him, but they made wretched failures. The Indian is more reticent than Gen. Grant ever was, and as great a smoker, using a pipe, however, instead of cigars- There is nothing about Sitting Bull's appear* ance to distinguish him from the ordi- nary specimens of the \noble reds,\ but we know that beneath his stolid exte- rior there is a very shrewd and active brain. There is a report afloat that the As- tor House will soon be discontinued as a hotel, and that the entile building will b3 devoted to offices for business pur- poses. An*unique scene was witnessed on Fifth Avenue, in the vicinity of Thirty- fourth Street, the other day. About onn hundred laborers who had been at work excavating for a sewer stopped for their hour's nooning and to eat their lunches from their tin kettles and baskets. Just then a young girl who was accompanied by a man who carried a tray of silver dollars appeared. She gave\each of th<- laborers a dollar for himself, and t-» those who were married she prest'ntt<l extra dollars for their wives. The youn_, lady was the daughter of one of the wealthiest reai estate owners in the city. When General Butler addressed the people at the New Jersey State Fair at Waveriy last week be caused no littl* 1 amusement by giviusx the following ad vice to the parents of marriageable daughters: (Continued on fourth page;
