DAILY DISPATCH.RICHMOND, I'll IDAY SEPTEMBER 2, 1853.
THE DAILY DißPAT^feLETTERS FROM NORTH.
United States llotki. >Saratoga, Aug. 27th, 1853*\There are »ow more thoiwands of visitersat thw place than there are hundreds in themountains ofVirginia. At the hotel at which
I take my meals, there are it is said threethousand persons, who board in the hotel, orin its colonial establishments, for whilst sixhundred persona can be lodged in the hotel,there are rooms belonging to its proprietorsia half the houses of the village. With thisvast crowd in a small place like Saratoga,yoa may form some idea of the appearanceof its streets and places of pablic resort.The harvest is a golden and mout abundantone, and there are qpute enough reapers- inthe field, from news boys to faro-bank ti-ge»fi. If the people of nothingin the way of business during nine months ofthe year, they work with the most indomita-ble energy during the hot months of June,Julv and August.
The money-making propensities of tkeworthy citizens of Saratoga are amazinglydeveloped dicing the three months that theirvillage is thronged with visiters. Men arenot content to pursue one avocation, but en-graft upon the main stock half a dozen othertemporary occupations. Doctors take inboarders, lawyers become agents for lines oftravel and express companies, whilst dentistsdeal in jewelry aiwi cutlery. In a fruit stallnear this hotel, you buy peaches and pocket-books, fiskiiig tackle and tomatoes. A bardworking harness-maker sells walking canesand umbrellas, whilst a literary market manadorns one side of his shop with pumpkinsand cabbages, whilst the current paste'boardliterature of the dayornaments the other side.The hackmen sell newspapers, and cry "hackSir," and "the last Herald Sir!" in the samebreath?whilst not a few ragged boys visitevery street and hotel with a bundle of" Tribunes" nnder one arm, and a basket ofpeaches on the other. The stores on theprincipal streets are the rarest omnium gath-crums that you can conceive of. Patentleather pumps and hand-saws, gold watches,and spades, white satin slippers, and coarselaborers boots, white kid gloves, and horse-collars, mantillas, and blanket overcoats, pen-cil casesandpin-cushions lieharmoniously to-gether. They areparadises of incongruities,where gentlemen in want of rat traps andmosaic bracelets can be supplied from thesame counter.
Of the number and variety of boarding-houses a volume might be written. They arearranged on a sort of sliding scale of prices,from the United States Hotel, where you paytwo dollars and a half a day, and an -'extra'forevery wink from the officials and servants,down to the humble rough-built hovel, whereyou are fed on coarse diet, and devoured bvfat fleas, for-three dollars a week. The citi-zens of Saratoga expect, during the busyseason, to convert every spare inch ofhouse-room into money: and if they have a vacantcloset, and a stranger calls they ''take himin," but not strictly in the Scriptural sense.Hence the affluent do not alone come to thisplace. It is not exclusively the resort ofpleasure-seeking men and women?but herethe invalid, however poor, can crawl forthand quaff health at the modern pool of Bc-thesda. From the humble places of accom-modation, during the warm, sunny hours ofthe day, files of pale, emaciated creaturesmay be seen dragging their weary limbs toCongress Spring, taking with tremblinghandstheir regimen of the sparkling water, andthen returning to their rooms. What a con-trast do they present to the wealthy andhealthy buttt-rHioo «n or three ladies here, with in-teresting families, v.-ho were the young deli-cate bliuhing belles often years buck.?They now care nt tiding lor the glare andnt»L-«i of the ball room, and talk demurelyenough in their little parlors, with the musicand merry tri;» of many dancer#, audible andvisible from their window*. And their hus-bands, the handsomest ami nieeot youug menof 1-M, lbnd of waltzing, driving,drinkingand flirting, now amuke and read newspapersall dav in the piazzas, as indifferent to theprettv faces aroundthem as if they were car-ved out of wood. They are not quite as *limor as active as they were ten years ago?theyhave grown fat, and wear, with a porn-el m-ilitftrcnce to fashion, clothes ot a iriarveLous-ly antiquated cut. They now can young gen-tlemen, with mustuehoes, "puppun. Tenvears ago, thev sported the same capillaryattraction, and* would have knocked youdownhad you hinted that they resembled thedetestable"young animals, to whom dandiesare often compared. But, as we advance inlife, we invariably forget that we committed

?fr ® m ®k®choly to trace the his-tory °* tie silly butterflies who tea years ago,XTtT^r of Meless extravagance ex-j£H S? d a»w«nent of the morew k» they havegone»£ doK8- a,M * they now repent inpoverty the thousand* squandered in idle diaplay. Many a «ne bird of that gay flock haschanged her silken plumage to the coarseapparel of the work-house. Theearth of therotters field covers the bones of many aBroadway dandy, who gave wine and cham-paigns parties six times a week, at Con-gress Hall in 1943, and many a humbletrades-man who solicited his custom, is now herewith servants and equipage. These vicissi-tudes and changes of fortune are very appa-?t a wateringplace, where yo® meet with
i 1""?' the frivolous, and the dissipated ofthe fashionable world. This rear, however,all of the places of fashionable resort havebeen crowded by people who have venturedout of their native States for the first timeto gaze wildly at the world. The Crystalwi
Ce? a °f fire upon the back ofa phlegmatic tortoise?has put the most tor-pid people of the South in motion, and thereare. very many thousands who are now sight-seeing in a very solemn and sedate manner,iney indulge in no extravagance, pay theirboard and traveling expenses honestly, andwill return home with inexhaustiblestores ofinformation for their neighbors.Yours, Sekxx.
Explosion and Loss or Li**.?The Wheelingiiitelligencer say* that onMonday afternoon, anex-plosion took place in that city, which resulted inloss of life and considerable dc3trbct ionof property:
"it appears that a drayman had loaded twenty-of power on his dray, near the water lineot thewharf and started hii horse, at a brisk gait,up the wharf, when oneof the kegs, becoming dis-placed, tell onto the paving, ignited in some wayand exploded with a terrific report. Mr Wallas-ton Kimberly owner of the drays employed in mo-ving the powder, was instantly killed, having thetop ot his head blown oft; and his body literallyburnt to crisp. P. Schanley, a drayman near by atthe time, w&jblown into, or ran into the river, be-ing blinded by the powder. He is dreadfully,thoughwebelieve notfatally burnt, andreceived nointernal injuries. Severalotherpersons were blowndown by the force of the explosion, and receivedslight injuries. Thesteamboat Salem received con-siderable damage, her pilot house much shattered,and the siding of the forward cabin much broken'.Other boats near by, received alight injuries. Thebuildingson Water street almost entirely deprivedof glass, and in many of them, the windows, sashand nil, were blown in with a crash. The SpriggHouse, with its strong glass and sash, faredbut littlebetter than the rest. "The windows of houses onMonroe and Union, a3 far back as Market, and onMain street, were not execpted from the generalcrash. The presumption is, from the violence ofthe shock, that most of the kegs on the dray ignitedfrom the one that fell, and explodedalmost simul-taneously. Of the 29 kegs composing the load, butone had been found.
Plain- Talking?Col. S. C. Pavair, of Camden,Tenn., who has recently been defeated as a Dem-ocratic candidate for Congress, writes a very bitterand racy letter which appears in the last NashvilleL'fcion. It seems according to his showing thathe has been for many years a strong party man;and spent time and money freely to advance thecause. But when he came up for office, it wasobjected, that he was a Hon of Temperance, andthe objection damaged his prospect4", and preventedhis election. We give the concluding paragraphof the Colonel's letter:
The result of the whole is, that no man needraise his head that has ever belonged to the tem-perance reformation; each democrat is to be pro-scribed, it is immaterial what u the debt of grati-tude to him. It is one of the modern improve-ment", and their improved economy is, when obli-gationsbecome bnrthen3ome, with one ungratefulact they cancel all obligations, and each one makesa little. This is intended as a lessen in moderntlmcß. I wU!not repeat Cardinal Woolsey'* speech,for it has become quite common, but a stuhbornreality stares me in the face. I have to sell thelast vestige of property I have in the worth to paythe money I have spent for a whisky-drinking,ungratelulparty. Ifevery one is thus to be treat-ed, it is plain what will be theresult.
SadFalling Off. ?Vermont is certainly gettingin a bad way. A correspondent of one of oprNorthern exchanges, gives the copy of a handbill,which he saw at Wells River, Vt., advertising a"Bull Fight and Trotting Match," which were tocome off at Bradford on the 22d. What does itmean? There is no State in the Union with whichwe arc more familiar. We have fished in its streamsand lakes, climbed its mountains, and visited al-most every corner from Berkshire and Edento Dorset and Bennington, and always found thepeople, as a whole, the most moral, siraight-lacedpuritantial folks imaginable. Their chief amuse-ments are catching trouts, join 1 to meetin,' eatin,mince and pumkin' pies, 'tendin' "singin-ekuls,'and "apple-parin'bees," and making love to thegals. Circuses, races, bull fights and everythingof the sort, are strictly "agin' the law." We canwell imagine how some of our acquaintances, andwe have hundreds of them in that beautiful littleState, must have been horrified. Where were the"Selectmen?" Where was the "Minister" and "Deacon" of Bradford, onthe 22d? We can't imagineWhat would the pious Ycrmonters say if a bullfisht should take place in the "benightedSouth ?"?Of course it would be mentioned as a specimen ofthe heathenism which, in their view, is always thecharacteristic of slave holders.

Itis sapposed, it says, that in the House, parties willstand 160 Democrats, 70 H'kigt, and that the Senatewill be chanced but little from that of the last Coo*grass. The Democrats, it says, hare fall sway, aa&will hare it in their power to give the country allthe Hearings they promise shall flow from Deno*cratic supremacy. The other paragraph*on the trouble about the Freach Miasion and th»President's position on the Pacific railroad; the lat-ter speculating upon the view the friends of thatmeasure will take of bis backing out from it
The Enquirer, in anarticle oa thePacific railroad,passes a eulogy upon the Polk Administration forits good faith to the strict construction doctrines ofthe Democrats in itscoarse apon Internal Improve-meata. With regard to the coarse of Gen. Pierce,the Enquirer hears "from those who oaght toknow, that he does notbold himself bound by anything that ha» escaped from any member of bincabinet." The Enquirer, in another article, warm-ly advocates an increase of the naval force of theUnited States.
The Tim-t alludes to the speculations about thecourse of the President on thePacific railroad, «majorityof which, seem to lean to the conclusionthat jhewill not recommend the roadin his annu.al message. "It k betrae," says the Times, "thatthe administration has been iorced into aa aban.donment of this scheme by Sourishing th0."96 reso-lution* in terrorm over its head, we congratulatethem heartily on their triumph."
Lewis 11. Putnam states in the New York Even-ingPoet, that a plan has been formed for the settle-went of thirty-one rural districts in the territoryof therepublic of Liberia, by the thirty-one States\u25a0t the American Union. It is proposed to settle-three hundred families in each district, each familyhaving a farm of its own, making, in all, an aggre-gate of nine thousand three hundred farms, andabout forty-six thousand five hundred inhabitant*.It is proposed that each State shall undertake thesettlement of one of these districts, and for thispurpose the executive of such State shall appointa board of commissioners to supply every familyof emigrants with the means of earning its supportin compliance with the principles embodied in theplan. The communication above spoken of is nowpublished, to ask the co-operation of the severalStates of the Union in this great work. $25,000 re-mitted to the governmentof Liberia will enable itto organize a board of commissioners to begin thework of supplyingemigrants with farms. An ex-periment has alreadybeen made bythe New YorkColonization Society and the Liberia AgricslturalAssociation to establish pixty farms on a plansimi-lar to the above, and with perfect success.
Virginia, as our readers are aware, appropriated$200,000 for this purpose, at the last session of theLegislature, and if her exampleis followed byotherStates, a vast amount ol good win result to the co.loredrace. We hope the plan may succeed.
Douglas Jekjiold, the wit and humorist whohas fallen to a largershare of the mantle of Hoodthan any otherEnglishman, it is said, is coming tothis country, and we hope he will be well receivedif he does. Wo meanrespectfully andwithout lionizing and toadyism. He is, we believe>a very liberal manin his principles, and he U cer-tainly a philanthropist. The New Orleans Deltastates that at a public dinner, some years agowhere Jerrold was a distingue, it was amazed tohear him deliver a speech, in which he declaredthat the American revolution of 1776 was the mostglorious event in history, and that no people, whshad a spark ot manhood in them, would oonsentto beruled over by a crazy king with a Dutch-roofhead.
