Rude. Esq.  From tho Albany Journal.  The wind blew great guns at the Ridgetifild athletio groundH Saturday ul^ht. Although it WtiB iuipoHSibie to keep th« torches lightetl along the tobogxau slide, which was rough and uneven, a nnuiber of venturesome and enthufaiastic tobogganers indulged in the «port, and the flrnt BeriouH acci-ent of tho winter was recorded. Among the party were Mr. John Mc-Hiirg and Mrs, K. B. Ten Broeok. Ah hey Were ai>proachiug the end of the glide, going tant, Mr». Ten Broeck was 8wen to sway. Her head "Struck th^' Hide bank with great /orce, and she vim pinked-up stunned and with a deep, ugly gONh three Inches long on her left theek. Hlu* waf (juickly taken to her liouie, where Dr. Vander Veer bewed up the wound. Hhe was also eeverclj'brained about the head. Her Injuries, though extremely painful, are not serious. It ¡m thought that the accident was due to Mrs, Ton Broeok's fainting at the point wh»>re she lost her balance. Her husband, CoL E. B. Ten Broeck, assistant paymaster general of the state, has been confiued to the house ior a week by an injury to hiH knee, caused by striking Hgainst the bank while tobogganing ten days ago. Two other minor mis haps were reported Saturday night The Blide committee decided this morning that the slide should not be opened again this season tinless more snow fell. In its preseut i'ORdition it is considered dangerous.  Ayer's Sarsaparilla is the best medi cine for every one in the spring. Eini grants and travelers will find it an effectual cure for eruptions, boils pimples, eczemas, etc., that break out on th(» sKin—the elTcetH of disorders in the blood, caused by sea diet and life on board ship.

The engine of train 16 from some unknown cause,jumped the track and rolled down an embankuient fifty feet high. Engineer Scott jumped from the cab and was not hurt, but the Fireman, (Iharles H.

DbLand, Fla., Feb. 20, 1886. Editor BKPORTKR-.—Illness has pro-vented me from writing you at an earlier date, but your readera have probably lost little by the delay, an I can now Bpeak more undersfandlngly ot tbe situation her«». A few words first, however, aa to our journey. By failures to connect, wo were delayed and compelled to stop over night both at Blmira and Washington. Leaving Washington Friday morning, with the thermometer 3 below zero, we reached Charleston Saturday morning, where we remained till Monday. On Sunday we drove around the city. It is no longer the Charleston of old. Northern men and northern ideas everywhere abound. Traces of the war are »till visible. One little building beurs In letters half effaced the words " Headquarters of the Palmetto Guard," tho organization that flred the first gun at Sumter in 1801. The city aulTered terribly from tho Union guns on Morri» Island,fathiliarly known as the "swamp angels." The great Catholic cathedral was burned by a shell, and in front of the Hotel Windsor, where we stopped, the proprietor pointed out a fracture of the sidewalk due to a situilar cause. The city 1h infinitely dirty and li yellow fever ever comes It will be a visitation of filth rtither than of Providence. Every living thing In vegetable form that frost could kill, is dead. Ivot oven a palmetto tree survives in all Charleston. The same is true of Savannah, where we stopped over six hours. Jacksonville seems little bettor off. ; In fact even here at DeLand, In South Central Florida^ all sepii-tropical vegetation suffered terribly from the great freezo. I stopped over one day at Pa-latka for the purpose of noting the situation there. As Palatka and De-Land are in the very center of the district most injured, I have had a good chance to see the worst efTects of the frost. I have, besides, conversed with men from every part of Florida and believe that i now know the situation. The entire crop of oranges on the trees has been destroyed. Not an orange can be got for love or money. Everywhere thousands of bushels of the finest orange« are rotting on the ground, as they fall, day by day,from the trees. They are only fit for manure for the grove or nursery. The nursery stock, consisting cf sprouts from four years old down, has been very generally ruined. But no bearing groves have been hurt to any extent whatever. Even the younger groves have mainly escaped injury, I have seen a few that are hurt but they have been the very youngest groves,just set out,and either in very exposed situations or feeble and ?ickly from neglect. Again, the Injury Is confined to budded trees. Seedling groves,though ever so young, have escaped; The orange crop for this year has not been affected, and proiuiseH lo be larger than ever. But the freeze did giVe people a terrible fright. The week after it, the liest groves in the state could have been imd for a song. To-day prices range higher than ev<'r front the fae.t that the destruction of the young stock %vill put back for two or three year? the setting out of new groves. Vet the direct in  and surrounded by drive«. The forest! are composed of the everlMtlag pine exclusively. The soil is the 8<ime old Florida sand, aodless and bottomless. On a bright moonliRht night the land looks as if covered vrlth bdovt, bo white and glittering is the »and. BeLand !• oertainly a thriving business place,aad is growing. Three large hotels todloftte a large winter influx of Northeraert. Rents are enormously high. A house that in WellHvillH would rent for $10 per month, brings PO here. They charge little more for a year than for the six cold months. The weather haa been glorious ever since we oame; the thermometer at 8 o*olook, p.m., raog> Ing from 57 to 77 «iegrees In the shade. To day a cold wind from the north indicates a blizzard up In Allegany. How is ili It ts 'varm enough here in the sun but a little chilly in the shade exposed to the wiud. All kinds of early-vegetables are now to be had. Two days ago I bought a lot of radishes, lettuce, early cabbage, onions, etc., raised in the open air. In faot euoU things are raised here the year around. Spring flower« are coming up. Deciduous trees are getting ready to put out their leaves. In fact the climate la glorious, and If the greed of man did not step in to mar its effect, this region might become an earthly paradHe. But DeLand is both blessed and afflict* ed with one of those mixed blessings and curses whioh seem inseparable from a thriving Florida town, to-wit: persons who spend, in ostentatious public enterprises, just money enough to set immigration flowing, and then, owning nearly all the land, plunder the immigrants to their hearts' content. Multitudes of men have come here with a little money, believing that five or six years would grow them a producing orange grove that would let them take their ease the balance ot their lives. Paying exorbitantly for this bare, sandy soil, they have set oat groves, fertilized the landi spent all their means and, just on the eve of sue-cess, been forced to let the laud with all the improvements go back to the original owner. lie sells it at an enormous profit to still another green hand, who in turn lets it go back, until, in the end, some one pays for it twenty times what it originally coat and holds it, making money from tho beginning and more every year. Half the groves around here are owned by two or three men, who thus reap the benefit of the expenditures and labors and sufferings of two or three successive tides of sanguine greenhorns, who now alternately damn Florida and repent their own folly, while laboring for a living in some of the workshops of tho north or on gome ef the wild lands of the west. The price of land on which I am writing this, after passing through three hands, has found its way back, to the original proprietor.  But as to this orange busines», and the way greenhorns are plucked, i must speak more at large in another letter. This letter is designed to deal in solid facts, and not especially to aniuflo. 1 Hhall ppi'ok of the lighter aspects of Florida life iu my next and following communications. Enough for now.

The impression has gone out tiiat thè orange iiiterefst is ruined and it will take years to correct it. Immigrai ion is ehecked. and the cheek will, appvoliead, be permanent.
