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.
