NKW YORK CITY. —The Tribune dra*S the
following master sketch of the metropolis of
the New World. It is gloomj as a Rem
brandt :
Ten thousand hardened and hopdess female
outcasts swarm the street at uight ; two thou
sand children, uuder the guise of peddlers,
from the ages of ten to sixteen, penetrate eve
ry public building, store and office in the city,
to beg, steal, spy for burglars, and on their
account practice those vices which cannot be
named in resectable language ; five thousand
great and small gamblers prey upon the cred
ulous and the infatuated, standing all day at
the doors of their dens in Broadway, as well
known in person and profession as the mayor
himself ; ten thousand lazy, drunken, thieving
short boys, killers, roughs, and rowdies of
other names, louuge on the rum-cursed cor
ners of the streets, making day disgusting,
uight hideous, and travel dangerous to all who
can be suspected of having respectability or
money \ thousands of emigrant swiudlers, mock
auctioneers, lottery dealers, policy backers,
pick-pockers, hall thieves, burglars, wharf-rats,
area-sneaks, pimps and vampires, practice their
knaveries as openly and with as little fear of
puuishment as though they were engaged in
the most virtuous and legitimate of human
pursuits The swell mob of London, Hying
from the Argus eyes of a reai police, and the
unendurable felons of San Francisco, expatri
ated by the bullet, and the hemp of the vigi
lance committee, are received here with open
arms, parade our streets, not only uuder the
toleration but the protection and personal
frieudship of the police, carry our primary elec
tions, and fill high places in uomiuating com
mittees. On every hand we have vice and
crime, and splendor ; crime, vice, rum aud
beggary. Here, iu the most fashiouable fau
bcu-g, is the Crockford'sof New York ; there,
between the palatial residences of a millionaire
and a diviue, is the maisem deioie of a woman
whose dress is the most brilliaut, whose equi
page the most costly, whose appearance is the
most stunning of any of the gay butterflies,
virtuous or vicious, whose beauty and wealth
add glitter to the opera, or suushine to the
promeuade. Within a bow shot of these pala
ces is the other side of the world ; for bro
cade, rags ; for diamonds, dirt ; for Johannis
bcrger. whiskey ; for Aspasias, drabs, with
here and there some poor, starving wretch,
paiufully euacting the " Song of the Shirt.''

How BAIN IS FORMED. —To uuderstand the
philosophy of this phenomena, essential to the
every existance of plants and animals, a few
facts derived from observation and a long train
of experiments must be remembered. Were
the atmosphere everywhere, at all times, at a
uniform temperature, we should never have
hail, rain or snow. The water absorbed by it
in evaj>oration from the sea aud earth's surface
would descend in an imperceptible vapor, or
cease to be absorbed by the air wheu it was
once fully saturated. The absorbing power of
the atmosphere, and consequently its capabili
ty to retain humidity, is proportionably greater
in warm tbau in cold air. Tiie air near the
surface of the earth is warmer than it is iu the
region of eloulds. The higher we ascend from
the earth the colder we find the atmosphere.
Hence the perpetual snow on every high moun
tain in the hottest climates. Now. when from
continued evaporation the air is highly satu
rated with vapor—though it be invisible—if
its temperature is sp.ddeuly reduced by cold
currents descending from above, or rushing
from higher to a lower latitude, its capacity
to retain moisture is diminished, clouds are
formed, and the result is rain. Air conden
ees as it cool?, and. like a sponge filled with
water and compressed, pours out the water
which its diminished capacity cannot hold.
How singular, yet bow simple, is such an ad
mirable arrangerneut for watering the earth.
A CONSISTENT " Sox." —The following a: cc
doto is told of a very clover fellow, who had
recently joined the Sons of Temperance Af
ter becouiiug a ' son ' he weut to Mobile on
business, aud was takeu ill there. The phy
sician was called, and on examiuing him, pro
nounced him in a very dangerous situation,
and prescribed brandy. The sick man said
he could uot take it. The doctor insisted
that it was a proper remedy, but the patient
said he would not take it. Tne doctor said he
must, or he would have spasms. "Well," said
the Son of Temperance, '* I will try a couple
of spasais first.''
A SUNNY SMILE. —Sidney Smith said of La
dv Murray's mother, who had a most beuevo
lent countenance, that her smile was so very
radiant that it would force a gooseberry bush
into flower.
fSy An English paper gives an account of
a tea party of sixty old women, who were the
mothers of eight hundred and sixty-nine chiL

about at that tea party, we should think.

but not for premiums, and when meriting will

The Judges on animals will have regard to
symmetry, early maturity and general quali
ties characteristic of the breeds —making due
allowances for the age, feediug aud other cir
cumstances connected with the age and condi
tion of the animal. They will be careful iu

courage the production of good stock of each
description for breeding.
The Judges on A*rictiltnral productions will
have regard to quality rtnd perfection us well
as size and quantity produced. In no case
should they award premium for an article of

ing out the superior qualities of the animals or
articles to which the premiums are awarded.
In no case will they award a premium when
the animal is not worthy, though there be no
competition. And when there is but one com
petitor, although he may show several animals
iu a class, or sub-division, only one premium
will be awarded ; that to be the first or other
wise as the animal or article may be adjudged
to merit.
Gentlemen appointed judges will meet and
report themselvts at the Grand Jury room in
the Court House, at 2 o'clock. P. M., on the
