NEW YORK, March 22, 1875. Very few people, even those who live in them, have any idea of the con- struction, cost, or methods of conduct- ing the great hotels of the great cities. "Would it be of any interest to readers to know about these things? I think so, and shall -devote the most of this letter to a statement ot them. To begin with, the hotel must, to make it what it should be.cover an en- tire block, or the greater part of it. This is necessary to get ventilation and and light. And even the four streets are not sufficient, for in additioa it has to have a court in the centre. Such a hotel will have from six hundred to one thousand rooms in it, the number depending upon the patronage desired. If transient custom is what is sought, the rooms are smaller, for you can tuck a single roan away anywhere, but if families and permanent boarders are wanted, tbe rooms must be large and airy, and have bath rooms, etc., con- nected with them. Steam is always used for heating the halls and public rooms, and all the rooms must have grates in them. A boiler that generates 200-horse power is none too large, for ia addition to the heat required, power is necessarj' to run an elevator and to do the work in, the kitchen and laundry. The means of communication be- tween the rooms and the office is the telegraph. Wires run from each room to the office and all the guest has to do is to touch a little knob and a hall-boy will be at his door in two minutes to execute his orders. Some hotels have a code of signals for the most common wants, so that the order is given by tel- egraph. Thus, one short pressure means ice-water; two, fire; three, chambermaid; one long and two short, breakfast; and so on. Now about the cost of all these con- veniences: The breakfast, dinner and tea service cost the chairs in the dining room alone, cost the morocco lambrequins in the parlors, cost each cornice and each window in the dining room, cost the mirrors alone in the dining-room bail, cost tbe fresco-work ia tbe dining-hall cost nearly and deserts. There are ti9 separate articles, _em- bracing 3 soups, 3 kinds of fish, 5 of boiled. 5 of roast, 7 varieties of salad, pale de foie gras with tutlles. 2 removes, 0 entrees, grouse and wid- ircon duck, 14 kinds "of vegetables. 7 varieties of pastry, Arc., 11 articles un- der the head of dessert. And all this based upon the steward's calculation. It was all consumed and there was just enough. The force necessary to run one of these Hotels, ruuy be staled as follows: Four book-keepers, three room clerks, three package and key clerks, eight bar-keepers', one engineer, thirteen file- men, one head cook, 12 assistant cooks, 70 waiters, So chambermaids, 45 laundry women, 35 scrub-women, 30 hall men. 13 porters, two carpenters, one locksmith, and so on, ID all 220 men ami 150 women are employed in the pay-roil footing up from to per month. Of course the discipline is rigid. Every person must be on duty exactly on time, and every one of them is bovind to do his or her duty silently. Thev wear noiseless shoes, and never speak unless they are spoken to. A com plaint from a" guest is equivalent to a, discharge. The of provisions for one of these hotels in round mi in- to per day. One hotel in New uses up per day in pumpkin pi( s alone iu the season. OF course the hotel proprietors in good times make money, for while the expenses are enormous, tbe receipts ate large. If tne house is full, the receipts ought to run very close to -f 4.500 per day for board alone, but it does not stop there. You for your own fires at the rate of per fire, and then there arc the in- numerable extras. ]f vou have a meal brought to your room it is extuu and if you are btbulouslv inclined it costs to indulge. The whiskv you pay twenty-five cents, for at the bar of your hotel, and so on for all oth- er drinks, and the same may be said of cigars. A big source of revenue is "privi- leges." The man who blacks your boots pays roundly for the room he and so does the umbrella stand and the barber shop. All these things are necessary to the house, but they are extras, and the proprietors don't give men the privilege of fleec- ing the public for nothing. Take it all in all, the hotel proprie- tor has a rery soft thing of it. I should like to own a large hotel my- self. BEECHER ASIA. The Brooklyn trial pours out over the country its regular quantity of swash each day, but vrhat it is all about heaven only knows. At the be- ginning Beecher was on trial for the seduction of Mrs. Tilton, and the alien- ation of that lady from her husband. But somehow all this has changed. It would seem now that the tables are turned, and that Tilton is on trial for anjrnumBer of offences. They brought the President of a Lecture Committee from Winsted, Conn., to prove that he was too familiar with a. young lady he had taken with him, and another man from Bloomington, Md., to swear that he uttered rather too liberal senti- ments in a lecture there, and they have dragged in almost everybody to show that somewhere he has done almost everything that is foolish and bad. Now, what all this has to do with the question at issue at the beginning of the struggle, is more than I can see. Suppose Tilton is a gay Lothario! Sup- pose the Winsted accusation is well founded, and all the other accusations as he is the wickedest man in New York, or anywhere else, what has all that to do with what he has charged Beecher with? Is Beecher on trial, or Tiltoa? That's the ques- tion. Nothing new against Tilton has been developed this week. The court room has been crowded as usual, and the public interest does not seem to dimin- ish, but the trial has, for all that, be- come fearfully stale, and everybody wishes it well over. Both Beecher and Tilton show the effects of it. Beecher is feeling haggard, and the younger man shows wear and care about the same. Old Mrs. Beecher bears up un- der it better than of them. She has not got on "the ragged edge of de- spair'' quite as much as her husband. BUSINESS is improving rapidly. I took a turn among the jobbers to-day, and found them much more chirpy than they were a month ago. The retailers from the country are in, in force, and they are buying with considerable freedom. Tbe old stocks are consumed, the country is bare of goods, the people have worn out and uand, ana they are to lay iu fresh supplies. Consequently the wheels are grinding again, and the merchants rejoice. Everybody antici- pates a big spring trade, a good sum- mer trade, and a very large fall trade. And I see no reason why these cheer- ful anticipations should not be realized. PlETKO.

NEW YoRk, March Turner's testimony of Friday last stir- red up the idle, the curious and the prurient to such a. degree that this morning there was the greatest crowd that has yet besieged the doors of the court room. That part of the court room assigned for auditors was packed. After court opened Bessie Turner resumed the stand and her examina- tion was continued by ex Judge Por- ter. Wftness first corrected her tes- timony- given and stated that Tilton's first visit to her room was in 1SGS, and the period when Tilton car- ried her to his room in 1869. WHILE IV STEUBENVLLLE I received several letters from. Tilton Witness was haaded several letters which she identified as having been sent to her by Tilton. Mr. Porter read one of the letters from Tilton chiding her for not taking nprroK was signed Yours as ever, THEO. TILTON. Another letter dated Brooklyn, Octo- ber 4, 1870. informed Bessie the house looked since her absence. The witness continued: Mr. and Mrs. Tilton sent me to a boarding school; Tilton first told roe of his wife's and his intention to do so one Sunday after- noon Tilton spoke to me about going'away, but nothing was ever said about my" going in connection with the stories against Beecher. [Handed a letter dated January 10.1871. J This letter is in mv handwriting; was direc- ted to me by Tilton; I think Mrs. Tilton was then at home. He was talking about Mrs. Morse and I told him she had endeavored to hire me to go round to Beecher and tell him of this story, which I refused to do. Tilton asked rue to copy this off and put my name to it, which I did. Porter then read the letter written to Mrs. Tilton dated Jamiarv 10, 1871, which informed her that Mrs. Morse had endeavored to procure her to circulate injurious stories about her husband. AnoMi -v letter dated January 12, was read stat- ing the story of Tifton carrying her i from her bed, which was a wicked lie. Tbe witness said: I wrote this second note at the urgent solicitation of Mrs. Tilton: Idid tell some five persons that Tilton tried to violate my person. TUE As tbe first sound of the question was heard everybody bent forward, eye descended upon tbe wit- ness. The witness replied to the ques- tions of Mr. Fullerton as follows: I went to live with them in July or August, 1864; left them seven.l times and came back again, it was in the spring the first time Tilton visited my bed room, and the second occasion was in the summer; I think Mrs. Tilton was at Monticellothe first time; [band- ed I am not sure, but think this is mv handwriting: I did write a letter from Tarrytown, to Mrs. Tilton. [After examining the letter, the wit- ness closed it and said: "les, is rnv Mr. Fullerton read the letter ad- dressed to Tikon. In this tbe writer spoke of tbe pretty walks in neighbor- hood of the church, and not caring so much about the preaching as about Beecher. Tbe letter was signed, Bes- sie Turner. The witness continued: After my return from Mr. Dows, in the summer of 1SC9. I went to Tilton's; Tilton came to my room; Mrs. Dows paid me my wages "be fore I left, finally; the witness was asked if this was Mrs. Dows returned from California and after a nause she said, Mr. part of the house; I do cot remember wiere the children slept at that time; I was Ij'ing there and Tilton .came in to bid me good night, and he stroked my hair and remarked how soft it was: he put his hand on mjrneck. I remov- ed it and he said "Why Beasie darling, how modest you He said people in the best classes of society generally gare such caresses; that even minis- ters gave them; I told him I did not care what people in the beat-society did; he talked to me about marriage and affinities, and asked me to allow him to love and caress me, and no harm should happen to me; I thought this conversation on" his part strange. I was then about 17 years of age; I was not shocked; I studied oTer his language as I did not know what he meant; I was angry when he put his band on nay neck; I had up to this time been much attached to Mrs. Til- ton, but do not think I told then of that occurrence; I remember him dis- tinctly saying, "Why Bessie, dear, how painfully modest you Idid not what he meant affinities and physi- cal expressions of love. In the summer of '74 I was on a visit to friends in Pitsburgh, Pa., and came on to Brook- lyn in August; while here I went be- fore the church committee and testi- fied before them; I spoke to them of tke two occasions on which Tilton vis- ited my room; the question was put to ine did Theodore Tilton ever attempt your ruin, and I answered "Yes, he did, on two I think I told the committee that Mrs. Tilton was at Monticello on one of those occasions; I do not remember saying Mrs. Tilton was at Schoharie; I now know she was at Monticello. and I must have been mistaken when I told the committee Schoharie: this was in 1870; I was mistaken in saying before the com- mittee that on the first occasion, when I was carried into his room, I woke in bis arms; I was also mistaken when I said that the two events occurred together; I said to them I thought Mrs Tilton was at Schoharie on one of these occasions; I was in Steubenville from 1S71 until I returned to Brooklyn in 1S74; I only knew of my going before the committee about ten minutes be- fore it occurred; I talked with General Tracy before I went there; on the sec- ond night after I arrived in the city I went before the committee; my father left me at Hailiday's and he took me up to Mrs. Orington's; it was the morn- ing I went up there, and that evening I appeared before the committee; I saw Mrs. Tilton there, and during my stay the object of my appearing before the committee _ jdo_ Jio.t Tracy called; I did not talk of the oc- currence at Ovington's and Hailiday's until Tracy called; the committee met at 8, and Tracy called between 7 and 8 o'clock; I am sure I did not talk with him two hours; I not remember who went with me before the com- mittee; I talked over the subject with a great many parties afterwards; I found afterwards on looking over tbe evidence given by me om that occasion that I had made some mistakes in roy testi- mony: I was at Pardy's whon I made this discovery: Mrs Morse was also there, but I did not talk over the matter with ber or as to tbe testimony given by me; when I made the discov- ery it was after tbe reflection I cpst over the testimony in my own mind when tbe mistakes were discovered me; there was a book of testimony given me bv Mr. Shearman, but I ne- er looked at it; I discovered seme of uy discrepancies through talking wuh 31rs. Mitchell who was at Mrs. Hill s; Dr. Carey, Mr. Hill and Mrs. Michel were present then, but I bad disco i my mistakes before that time; v were not subject of conversati then: wbile talking with Mrs. MitcLjll several little tilings were called to my mind which I bad not recollected befo; e; I do not think I told before tbe Com- mittee about Tilton stroking my hair and forehead nor about bis putting his hand ou my neck. Mr. Fullerton read the remainder of that testimony which the witness said was not told to the Committee as it was forgotten at the time. Witness continued: I had not thought anything abont this conver- sation ten minutes before I went before committee.
