Basselin, commisssioners; and A. L. Train, secre- tary, and S, F. Gannon, warden, met yes- terday at the cilice of Mr Knevals, 32 Nassau sti eet. The commission was ap- pointed by Governor Hill during the last legislature to investigate the matter of forming H state park in the and to make a report to the legislature this winter. The meeting was for the purpose of hearing reports and of forming a kind of court of inquiry Ex-United States Sen- ator John B Henderson of St ap- peared and advised that the lands needed for a park be acquired at once, as the titles are all of the most uncertain chaiacter Several lumbermen and residents of the Adirondack region appeared and gave es- timates ot the value of lands. No.de- cisive a the life-boat and brought it back to he Peny, a feat that a landsman might oniemplate with awe. It was then at the accident to the boat happened. a the boiling waves she came up under e Perry too fai, and some of bor planks ere liteially smashed by the cutter. An adventure like this is nor consid- red much of a hardship by a surfnian hen, as in this ease, the weathei is not ery cold, bti the dreads it when ice arms on eeeiythiug thai is touched by e spray Mention the word heroism Capt. Williams in connection with he lescue of the crew of the Golden leece and he would probably smile at he idea, Yet for all that it takes such uff as hcioeis are made of to carry out ucli an undei taking. The Improvement of Uunklrk Mr. B R Gifford lias printed two eiy beautiful views of Light House oint mounted in an aitislic foim, and together delightful pictures to look xm Anyone who has doubt that is is, a beautiful disliicl should see ese photographs.

There are nearly twenty-five acres in te plot purchased for the Biadford nd Dunkirit colony on Light Uous> oinl. A dozen cottages on it i the spring will be a commencement hose results can hardly be foretold The Dunkirk correspondent of the Juffalo Courier sends the following: Dunkirk has no rocket-like boom, but 01 its size is n wonderfully pcare-abid- S town. The fact that it has no police pictty good proof that it does not eed police very much Dunkirk is a leasant place to live iu, ou account of s locutiou, near the lake, near Burt.ilo, vith the use of five iiilroads. and the eople, as a rule, attend more stuUly to ben own butiuesS lhnu is utual in a lace of its tiie At least cne instance B known where a literary man came a poilionof (ivciy vear for eveial yenrs in succession, because u was a comtortable, heahby place ami waa let alone by the people to nis wilting quietl; by himself."

Taking he wholo city into consideration, anc he way the irnuioveuient spicadu from treet to street, il (seems that Dunkirk i aking an" unprecedented slip in thi lirection, and a mat velous change wil be shown yearly. Central avenue is one of the street which have made tbe most remurkabli inprovement in the last two or threi rears. Foui handsome houses abov Sixth street have been put up in the las wo years and three are built this sea son below Sixth. The new hotel nnrovement during the past stimuli Charles Sch is just having tbe eel I a dug for a new dwelling near Bwai street. George Tims has the window a his new house on the north side ol the street, in the same locality. B. M 3aycroft's two he OBSER VEit has spoken of before, have beeu nlarued and made almost new. Other houses hare been raised and much jainting kfas been done. The Springfield Republican contained lately the report of a Bulb Jociety, an organization gotten up fo the distribution of btitbs and roots an plants, frae, far the purpose of beaut Tying yards. It takes up a section o the city each year, giving away 50 sep arate lots of bulbs on each street. Th work it is doing is already known by its fruits, in tbe looks of the city. The game society offers three small prizes a year, for the three streets showing the most i inprovement in beauty during the year. The suggestion has been made that to give (.prizes of that sort would be received with public favor here, and there would certainly be many creditable aspirants for them.
