The Clironicle. FRIDAY, JUNE S3, 1883. TO THE BEA.DEES OE THE OHRONICLE. This paper is on sale at ihe following places every friday : ■Westchester—Hei news office and at the post office ; City 1 —D.

A VOYAGE AOEOSS THE ATLANTIO, As I am traveling, not so mneh to see ■beautiful scenery, as to observe the ways, manners, customs and civilization, of the peoples through whose countries it is my good fortune to pass, you may expect, dear reader, that in these letters to you, I shall dwell most on wliot I reg.ard with the most The railway system of England should be the best in tlie world. It is confined to a where there are vercome, and wli capitalil almostst goes a-begginging foror inv(e heavy grad< almo goes a-begg f inv It -was the first to be built, and it the most expensively built system of it ways in the world. From these facts a from the praises of it which are constantly sounded by Englishmen and many Amer­ icans, I was led to expect something near perfection, something at all events, far sup­ erior to any railroad system in our country. These expectations, in so far as my e.xperi- . ence and observation extend, have not been realized. The i«ssenger cars, I liave al­ ready describedbed inn a previous letter.tter.

Railroad, or the Pennsylvania, or the Jei Central, or any of the well-established 1 of the United States. The road-beds mirably ballasted and laid ; but no( 11 as those of the Pennsylvania Railroad; and the curves are, in some cases, of such small radius, that I could see the engine, out of the window of the last car of a short train. The engines are the ugliest I ever saw. They are as much inferior in appear- ■ ■■ V York Central, as 1 the N. Y., N.

There is a platform in front of engines, but two buffers. Since the engines stand so high, the smoke-stacks are very low. They reminded me at once of the nose of a pug dog. The steam-chest is, like alj le rest of the fireman; there is simply an iron shield, with two bull’s eyes in it, where the cab should be. Probably, it it not advisable to put cabs on these locomotives, because they are too long even as they a re; but it seems to me, that the space lost in the front mi der isvery long.a it carries is much oure, and the nrc-boxes of larger than ours, for the same reason. The whistles on these English engines are pitched at a most rmearthly high key, and the sound they emit is almost ear-splitting. As there are no grade crossings, the trains run along at a uniform rate of speed, even from the beginning; and were it not ■ S surd than the passenger cars o r the engines.

There w£ not a fire, or any heating apparatus, in any of them I was in, except one, although the weather was cold enough to make a he; vercoat more than acceptable. That exception -was in Liverpool. There, in the room set apart for passengers with first- class tickets, was a little six by nine grate fire which flickered occasionally. The other passengers, with second or tliir ets, were compelledipelled to sitt in a to si in a dirty room, where there was no fire. Mr. Gay and I suffered no such imposition, and the guard, presuming from my traveling companion’s distingue appearance, that we held fii-st- class tickets, did not disturb us. As soon as we were out of Liverpool, were struck with the fact, that every square foot of ground not covered with buildings, seemed to be used for farmii lere did not se years, there as large a man's ditches seemed to be countless, and along many of these, rows of willows or liedges were planted, the object being, as I con­ cluded, to suck up the moisture from the ground. In like manner, and for the same reason perhaps, hedges took the place of Our route, at first, was almost due cast, pissing a little south of Manchester through Sheffield, and turning to the south a t Ret­ ford. At Peterborough, where there is a grand old cathedral, we touched the e.ast- ern coast. Long before passing Manches­ ter. we found ourselves in a manufacturii region, the whole line, as far as Retfor bristling with chimneys, as though an army of Cyclopides were on a march. The vil­ lage* were, invariably, on the lov ever, more than two stories high, with little door-yards you could not swing a cat in, and back yards no larger. In some vil­ lages, the houses are built of common dirtj gray stone, in otliera, of common yellou brick ; in some, all ave roofed with coats* slate, and in others, with tiles. Tlie fence; consist of tliiok stone or brick walls. The streets are very narrow and almost always crooked; and into tliom or the back yards, tlirown. If, after look- 3S in the lowlands, you would turn your eyes to some desirable site a dwelling, tliere you would almost al- ys find an elegant country seat, with a giiificent park, sometimes hundreds ■os in extent, and all walled in, so th one walking along the road could mot s into it. There you would find the lord the manor or the proprietor of some mill or factory near by. Notwithstanding all this, I am free to say, that the working peo pie, whom I saw on the cars and street and around the stations, were comfortohl; dressed and apparently well-fed. A t o quiet nook; and, not far from it, a little hamlet or collection of houses, evidently the abodes of the farm-hands. These are, it seemed to me, even meaner than the houses in the manufacturing towns. I never could understand, hitherto, how the rains made, at times, such devastation in the English crops. It .is a mystery to me no longer. The ground seems to be Ids we passed by, looked no longer. The grout soaked. Many fields like salt-marshes at high tide, although ditches were On all sides of them. saw farmers ploughing in the rain, as com­ placently as though that was when they should do so. AVe should bear in mind, too, that the eastern part of England is verj’- much like Holland and Belgium. The North Sea divides them, and, of course, stands at the same level on both sides. Eng­ land, it is true, has not undertaken to re­ claim land from the sea, as Holland has, and hence she does not, as Holland does, cultivate any land which is below the level of the sea; hut, excepting such lands, there iiblance bet 1 , !m Holland has. itrong resemblance between the eaa of England on thee onee sideide andnd underlies the surface of the part of England on th on s a Hol­ land and Belgium on the other. I am not certain, but believe that a stratum of chalk underlies the surface of the e.astern part of England. If so, it prevents the water from soaking through, and Jiolds it, as it w-ere, in a basin. Frequently, as wo rode, along the scenery bore a striking resemblance to that about Eastchester Creek, and Mr. Gay. several times, was also struck with i t and called my attention to it. Tlie rivera of England are the merest apologies for the name as none that I saw except the Thames and the Mersey are wider than Eastchester Creek a t the town dock. • All along tbo eastern const of England, and for many miles inland, wo saw scores of old picturesque windmills, with their light-house-like-towers and their four great, lazy arms. They are just the same as thos in AVales and Holland; in fact, the same a those of five hundred years ago; and I an sure, that were some Yankee Don Quixote to invade England, and plant his standard, in thethe shape of one of ourr modemodem -wind- shape of one of ou m mills, on some one of her hills, he 1 over these relies of ifle has tr ax and the lance. About five o’clock, wo began to realize that London was near a t hand because our train was continually }>assing througli little villages like those on the outskirts o f New Tork.

My advice to you is, to take the last named course, and to get as near the centre of at- ction in this great city, as possible. Any- ere, in a good neighberhood, within a mile of Cliaring Cross orTemple Bar monu­ ment, would answer admirably. Thou, wlien you go sight-seeing, adopt one of three modes of locomotion, according to the dis- time, ride on the top of a stage ; and if you have not plenty of time, take a Hanson. If you have not procured a map and a giride book, be sure to do so immediately, and study them thoroughly. Tliere is much rubbish in most guide books, but it is better to wander tlirough it, than to wander aim- have to go andnd yourour ough to walk, but liave plenty of e you have to go a y physical condition.

Eoiiot got a full map, it will merely confuse you, by its elaborate labyrinth of streets .ind lap he your Uadc mccimi-. take it in your pooliet, t your bearings with it’ lenever you can.

You can liire these cnbs by the hour or the distance. In either case, cabby will higgle with you if lio is oflfeied the regular fare. Hence it is best to make your bargain before starting, and not to be too liboi-al in,conceding extra pay. ■With your map and list of places to be seen, before you, and the times when the latter are open, it is easy to arnango the order, in which you will proceed. If you. do not adopt some such plan, you will find yourself riding back and forth, from one side of London to the other unnecesarily, and thereby losing muoii valuable tim Don’t simply “ do ” a place for the s; saying you liave been tliere. It you a interested in pictures, don’t -waste halt a day staring at them ; if you don’t like to climb towers and look down from great heights, don’t ; if you don’t like musty, dingy, churches and the relics therein, don’t xmtu. at them ; and if you don’t care to see a piece of the shirt which Edward the Confessor wore wlien lie died, or a piece of the feat Eichard the Third wore in hislielniet, di be so foolish as to pay a shilling for precious privilege. I don’t know whetiier such a piece of shirt or fe.atlier is in exis­ tence, but I do know that silly tourists pay liberally, to see similar things. I i-emained a week in London, and failed to seo all I wished to see. I hope to spend two or three more days there homo, and until I shall have dc it best not to give you my impressions of the place. Suffice, that it is the largest and greatest city in the world; the centre of business and of attraction. It is not asbeautifulasParis others, London is far ahead of u s ; and it will be at least two, perhaps three gener; tions, before New York will wrest the pali out of her hands. The longer you stay in London, likeke it,, and itsts people.eople. They you li it and i p They speak llie English language heautifiilly, and they wall: gracefully yet sturdily.

There is liarity in their speech, especially in their ladies: it is the rising inflection ||pd of every sentence, ho it a question’ I fancy that this comes, from listen­ ing to tho ring-song way, in -which the Epis­ copal clergy repeat the church service. Since I am not going to tell you any more, at present, of my impressions of London and her people, there is no need of lingering there; so come with me, dear reader, to Ludgate Hill Station, and go with meter Paris by tho ten A. ir. train.
