The N. Y. Skating Park.
We clip the following racy description
ofthe skating done on the Central Park,
from the New York correspondence of
Fordey'S Preis :
Have just come from Central Parke;
never saw anything like it in the long
and cheerful-sort of life it has been my
felicity to lead. The commissioners no
ti'fied the public through the papers this
morning that the ice is ready for skating,
and accompanied the notice with ample
directions as to the mode of access, the
arrangements for the convenience and
comfort of ladies and gentlemen. In
serting my' i7O lhs. avoiidupois into a
Sixth-avenge'car, I was wagoned "on
ward and upward" to Pifty-ninth, where
taking the more, moderate but.thorough
ly-reliable team of mares, coMmonly de
nominated "Shanks'," I soon found my
self at the end of the Mall, and _in the
presence of at least-twenty thousand 'hu
mans, a large proportion of whom were
the A.merican fair. The entire police
force attached to the park were about
and on.the ponds, to render as-dstance,
give information, and preserve order.—
At the balcony, spacious rooms for re
freshments, cloaks, &c., are erected,
where, one may, get all, such comestibles
as are usually obtained at a party.ln
front of the bridge, a large space of ice
is reserved exclusively.for the ladies ;
near this is:a dressing-house, with a:
male attendant ready to, do herlittle en
deavors. „.Purther on is another space,
fenced off from the main pond, 'reserved
fo r. children and ladies learning to skate.
But the, g,reat feattire is, of course, the
main pond, where skaters_ of boh_sexes
get upon the irons.and"ge it ;"and.isn't
it a sight to see"! Temthousand or more
active, little bodies, careering around as
though the ancient Nicholas was after
them,,,going through the most grotesque
gyrations, backwards, forwards, side
ways, with ladies. on arm, or pushing the
dear creatures, Or whirling them about,
or doing.any other of. those saucy but
endearing little humbuggings by which
men and women are made to cotton to
each other. Isn't it, exhilarating ?
'ralk about sylphs and, seraphs ! why
there's no movement in the world that
wrings a man's bosom so instantly and
thorouahly as a woman who goes_streak
.ingabout: on the ice quick as fight; and
graceful as a fawn, showing . just enough
of beautiful ankles, and nattily adjnsted
skates o."wish you was in. Dixie' and
coming np to. en-with,asenileon, the
lips, a , glow on the c,h,eek, a heaving
chest, and:bright ckerry . glance of-the
eye !., Why speak_ of traz/king-into a man's
affections when there's skating? From
two to four o'clock, the carriage roads
lining , the ponds were crowded with"ve
hickles.rilledwith :ladies. gentlemen. and
little ones, looking at the sport. On the
ice the crowd became so great as to
make getting about rather troriblesoine.

On Thursday afternoon and evening;
M. Blondin,-the Vold- as well se the skill

~publia of ntila

in the Academy of Music, which he had
specially engaged for the purpose. 'The
stage was taSteflilly fitted up; - and: all
the other arrangements were of the most

were fixed—one from the stage •to: the
centre. of the - p - argnette, the other from

led qrchestra with the violin -while
on this rope, turning a somersault et/the
time, and continuing, 'to'' play the air

iope; to the 'remotest and' highest part
of the house, covered rip in a Sack, -arid
with his eyes blindfoldeii, and -walked
back to the, stage, with apparently as
much ease . as if he was, on: terra firma.
He repeated this journey, oat of sack,

ty:six years old, having been born. at. St.

one of the •first-Napoleon!s old " soldiers
of the Binpire;" - add died when - the son
was only nine years old. From child

taste and-aptitude for
. gymnastic feats,
and before his sixth year was "-the In
fant Phenomenon" of France, in that
line. He arrived in the United States,
in 1855, as one:of the Ravel Company,
with whom he remairted three years.

I am carrying out the wishesof my long

honor, I feel that it Will probably be the
last official act of life. What Ido here
I know I must give an account on the
final day. I tremble in view,. of my, re

feel Who is cfiarged with this important
duty. We may be dediding the destiny
of the country, and indeed ,may be,-,tel

Of the world. I trust all will therefore
act with a view of the solemn trust nom
mitted to you. .
