Dull Times in New York --The following is an extract of a letter from New York city: The fashionable hotels continue to suffer severely from the pressure of the times. The suspension of Southern travel, of course, is almost total, in consequence of the war, and as that sort of patronage was always the most profitable, the lack of it now is severely felt. The few arrivals daily recorded hail principally from the New England and Western States, but even these are like angels' visits--"few and far between." The newspapers, too, continue to suffer from the state of the times. The Courier and Enquirer, on the 1st of July, it is said, will be merged into the World. The Journal of Commerce, like the Courier, a mercantile organ, has also been compelled to curtail its dimensions, owing to a lack of advertisements.

The New York dry goods, trade. There is a moderate business doing in domestic goods for many purposes, especially in woolens, but otherwise there is but little movement to advise. Many of the mills are working upon these goods, and there is now no scarcity of supplies. Cotton goods are held with increased firmness, owing to the small stock and rise in the price of material; there is still a demand for drills and duck for the army, but beyond this the market is generally quiet. In foreign goods there is some little activity in trimmings and goods suited for the summer wear and traveling purposes, but the volume is quite small. The short credit system is to be inaugurated on the 1st of July, but merchants do not seem desirous of availing themselves of the few days left to purchase under the old system; in fact, most of them are not in a position and credit to do so.--New York Express.
A few days' sojourn with the Army of the Peterman.[by our Correspondent.] Headquarters, The suddenness with which a people can change their national character was perhaps never more strikingly illustrated than in our own times, and amongst our own citizens.--Although accustomed to the use, we have not hitherto found it necessary to cultivate the profession of arms, and therefore have had no military organization, such as the great Powers of Europe find it necessary to sustain. Notwithstanding this deficiency, no sooner are our rights, liberties, and even territory threatened by Northern despotism than we show to the world that, without being soldiers, we can, in an emergency, become such. So sudden a transformation is, to my mind, one of the most remarkable events in modern history, and doubtless will not be passed over by the future chronicler of this unfortunate internecine war that now wages between the Northern and Southern sections of the American States.
