OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
THE WEATHER THE CHINESE IN NEW
YORK POLITICS IX THE METROPOLIS
DFSOLATION OF THE CITY CHILDREN'S
SUMMER HOSPITAL VANDER15ILT AND
HIS SCHEMES BUSINESS.
Xew Yokk, August 5, 1S76.
Which is the most important matter about
New York, just now, has moderated
slightly, and it is once more possible to
sleep. Nevertheless it is yet too hoc for
either comfort or health. The heated term
has beeii the most terrible ever known, and
has swelled the mortuary list to a degree
that is absolutely frightful. Children have
perished by the thousand, and almost an
equally largo number of adults have suc
cumbed to the more than torrid heat.
One woman in Baxter street has assisted
iu preparing 134 children lor burial.. Aud
right here let me say that there litis been
scarcely an instance of death from among
the ranks of the temperate. The men
who hnve avoided the use of alcoholic
drinks, when sim-struck almost iuvariably
recovcred, and when recovered we're as
good as new. But when a whicky or beer
drinker went down it was generally down
for good, and it is a matter of fact -that
the drinking classes were an hundred fold
more liable to be struck tliau the temper
ate. The temperance people ma3' make
what use of this they please, but sill
the city physicians will vouch for its
Are invading New York in large numbers.
There are now 3,000 here, aud with them
their opium dens and joss-houses. They
are just as filthy, ju.-t as industrious and
just as harmless here as in San Francisco,
and follow the same occupations. They
wash, make cigars, and keep street stands,
pay their debts, save some money, and
gamble and smoke the best of their earn
ings away. They inhabit Baxter street,
here, as everywhere else, selecting as their
headquarters the most filthy and squalid
section of the city. They have only one
joss-house as yet, though another one of
larger dimensions and more aristocratic in
style, is in contemplation. The number is
increasing very rapidly, and as the great
colony in San Francisco is sending off col
onies Eastward all the time, it is very
probable that iu a few years the territory
iu and about Baxter street will be very
much like Dupout street in San Francisco,
and that in New York the religion of Con
fucius and the Chinese theatre and Chinese
amusements and customs will have estab
lished themselves firmly in Jfew York.
Well, let them come. They are a harmless,
industrious and honest people, who Will
work and never want oflice. There is some
comfort in that.
The Democracy are worried because
Tilden and Hendricks can't agree upon
their letter of acceptance, and give them
a show to open the campaign. They see
that while they are delaying for this open
ing the dissatisfied Republicans are very
rapidly returning to their old resting-place,
that as Hayes and his character are be
coming better understood, the ii telligent
Denjoeraey are growing very cold toward
the mulatto ticket made at St. Louis, and
that, in short, unless Tilden comes to the
front very soon the battle is hist for them
before it is fought. The truth is, halt the
decent Democracy of New York don't
want Tilden elected in any event. They
know him to be tricky and unreliable, aud
they feel confident that in the case of his
election they are sold out. He professes to
be a hard-money, resumption man, aud
why lie don't come out and say so, instead
of paltering with soft-money Hendricks,
and fixing up declarations that mean noth
ing, puzzles them, and they feel tliat they
are sold In him. Everybody knows where
Hayes stands on all these questions, and
no one will vote in the dark voting tor hi.n.
Tilden is one of those exceedingly acute,
small men who overreach themselves. He
has no honesty liimself, and does not be
lieve that any one else has. He acts upon
the theoiy that all men are as dishonest as
himself, except the simpletons, and he
very largely overestimates the dimensions
of the latter class. He is foolish enough
to suppose that the rank and file of the
Democracy will accept any quibble for the
sake of success, and he is paltering with
them in that way. Hayes will carry the
State of New York as sure as fate. Think,
my readers, of a man who is nominated
on a platform expressing the views of a
great party, on a great question, who has
to have two conferences with his associate,
and four sessions of a committee to decide
as to what lie does believe, and as to what
lie intends to do in case ot his election !
This very delay is a trick which will defeat
him, tor It U evidence of dishonesty and
insincerity. The Republicans are very act
ive and are pushing things delightfully.
Old as lie is, and sick as lie is, is rapidly
recovering, and will get out to business
again. The old man is determined not to
die till he has his four-track road com
pleted through to Chicago, ami possibly
farther west, and has demonsf rated the su
periority of rail over all other means of
transportation. Even during his illness he
has pushed his warehouses ' aud other im
provements in the terminal facilities of his
roads, with a view to saving the grain
trade to the city, which is being diverted
to Baltimore, Vhiladelphia and Boston. :
He has during his illness received builder?,
contractois. mechanics and railroad offi
cials, every day, .and when he was too
weak to speak he made them understand
what lie wanted by writing or signs, tile
will do business as long as he lias breath,
and will be felt as long as there is life iu
him. His vitality is wonderful, and it
wculd not be singular if he should be an
active man for twenty years yet. He has
been a temperate man. He has workeJ
very hard all his life, but very systematic
ally. Wheirjie works he works, and when
lie rests he rests. He will work all the
season till about the first ot July, when he
goes to Saratoga, aud stays till October.
He reads exactly one mail every day while
at the Springs, and answers it by an ama
nuensis, and then amuses himself till pre
cisely half past nine, when he retires and
sleeps. He indulges in stimulants very
sparingly, and is very careful of bis diet.
He is a tearful card-player, always playing
foriouey, aud the stakes must be high
enough to make it worth while to play.
Curious stories are told of his card-playing,
some of which are doubtless true. He is
as merciless at poker or point euchre as he
is iu business, and woe bo to the poor or
careless player who talis into his hands.
It is business .with him, and he pursues
the game just as eagerly as lie does his
real business. As the chase iu England
was accounted a miniature war. so gentle
manly gambling with Vauderbilc is the
next tiling to business, and he follows it
with as much zest. Now that Drew is
gone, Vanderbilt aud .lay Gould um the
only railroad magnates left, and it is not
probable they will ever lock horns, again.
The old veteran has too much to do to ier
tect the railroads he now controls, and Jay
Gould's interests and his do not conflict.
THE CHILDREN'S SUMMER HOSPITAL.
Among the charities which benevolent
ingenuity is continually devising, the Sum
mer Hospital for Children deserves free
handed supjiort. The excursion of St.
John's Guild lloating hospital boat, which
takes hundreds ot sick children aud their
mothers daily up the river lor pure air,
has made a difference at once in the death
rate among children. But ten hours a
week ot wholesome 'iving out of the stink
ing dens the poor call home is enough to
keep, life in them, but hardly enough to
make sound children of them. The -plan
was devised of a temporary hospital or
rather home, in one of the healthiest places
on tl:e river, where sick children could be
sent for a fortnight at a time, iu the dan
gerous part of the season. The charity is
not an extravagant one. i lie nuiiciings are
of the plainest, airiest description, thetood
in the country is fresh aud cheap, and the
cost of the whole affair - is decidedly less
than that of the steamboat excursions.
The poorest woman in the city can have
her sick child sent there and get the best
care taken of it for weeks, without a dol
lar of expense to herself. Iu this fearful
season, while the children ot well-to-do
people are dying like sheep, it is a great
mercy that such saving help isextended to
those who else had no choice but to see
their covetously-loved children sicken and
die without the least alleviation of their
The city is almost abandoned. The rich
lied from the terrible beat to their villas at
Newport, and to the cool shades ot Sara
toga ; those in moderate circiMnstances arc?
at the thousand and one sea-side places,
and up in the mountains, the artists and
Bohemians are up North where they can
Keep cool, and live very cheaply, and only
the poor and the unfortunate business men
who cannot get away, are in the city. The
theatres are c!osed, as are all places ot
amusement, the stores are empty, and the
hotels are like Saharas 4n their stillness.
The only trade there is comes troni the
Centennial folks who are passing backward
and forward through the city, aud they
leave very little money here. Those going
want it all to see the big show with, and
when they return they want to get home
as quickiy as possible. Aud New York
lies inert, baked, still and discouraged. Let
us hope there will be a revival with the
cool breezes of September.
Is still wretchedly dull, aud failures were
more frequent this week than last, and of
rather larger dimensions. There are a
great many firms that have yet to go un
der, and the sooner tli.y go the belter. The
volume of trade is reduced, and so many
houses are not necessary to do it. The
strong ones will survive and be stronger
for the cleaning they have gone through,
hut the weak ones will inevitably go un
der, and they might as well do it to-day as
to hold orer a few weeks. . The man who
was worth $1,000,000. four years ago is to
day worth $125,000 and he might as well
make up his mind to it, aud take it cheer
fully.. The bottom is out, andNit is out
fairly. We are getting over the war uow.
