Mr. Niblo, aa will be seen by his advertisement, has established a sociable to run between the City Hotel and his Garden. This ia by far the handsomest and most commodious Broadway coach yet produced. In general appearance, it is not very different from Brower's Omnibus, but much superior. The doors open at the sides, which allows of a person stepping from the aide walk into the carriage, and tbe body is bung so low, tbat there is need of but a single step. Broad bands of some thin material project over the wheels in auch a way aa to protect a lady's dress in getting in or out of the vehicle from being soiled. A little boy attends in side ijmf carriage aa waiter, whose duty it is to receive tbe tickets. - poll the check string, and open the door. It te a nsat, rxaasiK)Jwas,esstyrlissaTsMikaierit. and aa tt ia intended to ran in the evening, will be a great accommodation to the inhabitants of tbe lower part of tbe city, and strangers, wishing to visit Niblo's delightful garden. Mr. Niblo, we believe, was tbe original proprietor in this city of the sort of carriages which havo of late been so extensively introduced among us, under the names of Broadway and Greenwich Stages. As long ago aa 1821, he ran a sociable of tbe kind. which was drawn by four very fine bones. The little respect which his driver paid to the chains then extend ed across Broadway in front of some of Ihe churches, occasioned considerable conversation, and we believe. gave rise to a prosecution of the proprietor. He hsd, at the time, a pair of leaders, of which he used to boast, that they would break through any chain tbe church might choose to put up, if not larger than that which was once extended across the Narrows to defend the Harbour from tbe British fleet. Tbe horses, attached to the Lady Clinton," (the name of bia present beautiful coach) seem able to do nearly as mucb. Among the beautiful collection of flowers in Mr. Niblo's Garden, arranged with great taste, ia a Cactus Grandifiora, or Night - blooming Ceres. About eight o'clock on Monday evening it began to open, and in a couple of hours this Queen of flowers was in full bloom, ana did not close tdl after midnight. On the same plant are two other buds which will expand and unfold their beauty in a few daya, timely notice of which will be given.
