A Cheap Rival of Manhattan Beach and the Orient The Location or the Coney Iriand Jockey Club Tract and the Drlrtao Across tho Bay Maklns; it a Place of Importance winter Trains this Year for the First Who are BuildingReal Estate Transactions. While the Winter has been coming on and tbo frequenter, of the bssob. and Its adjacent attraj - tlohs have been dovotlnK themselves to the delights of metropolitan eooisty, forgetful of tbe tawny saade and shelves where trip the pert fairies and the dapper elves, as CromweU'a Latin secretary would doubtleii put it, the r.gular Inhabitants along or near tho ocean's edge, the olam eating autoothone of the beaoh have bson ab busy a. beavers .Iyly getting ready for tho boom of next season. The Summor beaoh frequenter Imagine, tbat vrhtn ha turns his baok on tho surf and Its , surroundings ho leaves nothing bat a desolation behind him. When ho goes everything goo., and he shivers In bis mind vrhen he thinks of tho solitude of tha wintry shore. Ho la mistaken in hla idea.. The good bonl - faces who got fat off his purse are far seeing fellows. They know that the beaoh frequenter having tasted of their fatal fare will oome again and .bring others with him. They spend the muter, not In moroly counting their gains and, Uko tho hibernating bear, In suoklng the paws of their satisfaction, but In shrewdly putting up further Jobs by whloh they may aequlro more of the beaoh frequenter'a coin another season. The great big isolated and forever completed caravansaries, Uko the Manhattan and tha Orient and ths Brighton, which could not be mads any larger or nearer ptrfeotton without falling down through the superabundance of flielrown oxcellenop aC0, of coarse, shut up with nobody permanently about them excepting tne watohmon, who lookout that they do not spontaneously oombust ; but the man who imagines that these overgrown hotel monsters do all the boarding business in the Summer would miss his stays. From the dilapidated wooden pier on the west to Sheepshaad Bay oa the east, (very little or big houso of respectability snrt their number Is many has Us quota of well to do, unfashionable, but nevertheless, eo far as the world's goods and common sense go, well ondowed family people, who go to the beach to enjoy ooolness and salt air. and bathing at a reasonable figure. It 1. for such as these that the Winter along tbe b.aoh Is made busy in the extension of uoardiug house borders, the putting up of new hash houeos and the origination of now gin mill., Bheeps - hoad Bay HAD A NiMH AND TAME before Culver discovered Coney Island. It was a resort before the idea of an East River Bridge was born In Ibo brain of an oaglneer. It might have puzzled a Brooklynite of the later Importations to And out how to get to Shdopshoad Bay, but a great many learned the road and wout and went again. The name of tho place was then pretty muohjall that tha place Implied. There ie a legend that away back at a time whloh the memory of man runneth not against to use the legal language of Justice John McMahon, of that Ilk the neh, now extlnet, f com which the village takes Its name were caught lu tho little cove on the borders of which tbo village stands. That, of oourae, was many aeons before the combined sewers of the Manhattan Beach and Oriental hotols omptled their tides of filth into Bheepshead Bay. Thore were then, sa there are now sllegod to be, multitudes of elams of tho soft degree to be found there. Likewise then, as now, many and largo mosquitoes. And it wss ths delight of the anolent Brooklynite to drive down thither and enjoy the olama aud the mosquitoes aforesaid. He generally did not remain long, seldom over night, and did not, ns a rule, go baok again Boon, or, at least, not until he had reoovored. Still, it was a dead aud alive sort of a qaaint littlo holo where tho liquor was bad and the sos breezes good. Tho advent of Culver aud Corbin and Dreclin at flrat did not do ShoepBhead Bay any good. It waa quite tho reverse. Evorybody, evou tho ancient Brooklynite, gave it tho go by, and the burly burly and Vanity l air business that arOBS on the Island proper, tho Levys, tho Ar - bucklos and all that sort of thing, Including the eewera of Corbln'a two mammoth hotala, made it look for a while as though Shoopaboad Bay would be glvon over to the foxes and tho owle aud the deaolatlou spokon of by tho prophet. Then TWO TIILVOS UAPPSNflD which, like thu discovery of the passage around the Cape of Oood Hope or the construction of the Suez Usual, or fray of thono blstorioo - oomiaoroial events which occur once in four or Ave hundred years two thtugs happanod, elthor one of which would have made the fortune of bheopshead Hay. One was the location of the track of the Couey Ialaud Jockey Club near the village. The otbor was the brilliant stroke of genius which couocivad the idea of building a bridge across he bay aud of connecting Sheepehead Day with aud making It ajpsrt ofiUanhattan Beach. Thelooatlon of the track there brought vaatorowds within viewing distance . of the village on race days and kept a population of Joekeys, trainora and stable attendants near there during the racing meetings. Horses and Jookey and trainer, and attendants all had to bavo their grub, their amuiemeuts and, all but the horses, their rum and their lth) sproes, Jhoa greatjeag EiiSawuilm SliiopBhoaJ Day. But it is doubtful If the race track would hr,ve been the everlasting making of the plaee per se. Per it was not enough. It wanted the bridge to fix that thing. Now it is doubtful, imagining aa we do what the East River Suspension Bridge is booked to acoomplish for Brooklyn it is doubtful if it will ever stand, though it may for ten thousand years, do for tho Oity of Ohnrohes what that bridge acrosa tho bay la krown to have done for Bheepabead Day. Where - the far seeing Oorbin was to let It be done Is not imaginable. Where the far seeing geniue of the metropolis was to let tho East River Bridge bs swung serosa Is likewise not imaginable. Both are accomplished facts ; one, the BHXBPSKEAD BAT BIUDQB, mora so than the other. Corbin awoke to his mistake too late. When it was too late he found what it meant. See the astuteness of the genius of Sheepehead Day. Corbin or hi. hotel man charges large prices for the pleasures of his enohanted grounds, beash and music Nobody likes to pay large prices for any blessing, no matter how much it Is worth. By means of that bridge the Sheepehead Bay landlord, having acquired guests, could say to them after their frugal supper of clams : "Go to I walk across thla bridge and enjoy the bathing, the promenade, the flreworkB, the muaio, the seats on the big piazza of Corbin aud pay not a eont, returning to these comfortablo tabernsoles as the evening wsn - eth." And they did it. And the fame of the chcapnos. of the Qheopshead Bay second hand watering place arrangement, went throughout all the land, and last season there were no rooms to be had. Then began tbe boom in building. Near tho Manhattan Beaoh 'railroad station two - pr three boardinghoMseB went up like Jonah's gourd, in a night, and they were no sooner up than thoy were full. The boom went nn, and now no less than a score of new buildingB have been erected or are in courie of erection ; real estate la on the rampage, and unless there Is a measure of moderation taken hold of, another season will find the little village overstocked, and prices higher in proportion than on tho beach, where ono can walk along and weep, if he chooses, and listen to the loud resounding waves. Of course Corbin did not submit to this bridge without a struggle. There waB a fight almost equaling that on Tiber's basks, when THE BTBTJSOAH HOBOEB OAME DCnYN ind Horatiu. kept the bridge so bravely. The fight over the Sheepshead Bay bridge has gone into history, but as no Sheepehead Bay lay has been written about it, the name of the modern Horatlus is forgotten. It is believed to have been Justloe John MoMahon. In a resent conversation with this marine Rkada - manthus, the beauties of Sheepshead Bay as a port of entry were measurably dwelt upon. During tho present Winter the entry has been by way of the Brighton Beaoh Railroad, which hoB had in force a Winter sohedulo of four or live traine each way each day. This 1b the first time in Its exlstonce that Sheepshead Bay ever was a port of entry In ths Winter time. Heretofore, In the Winter, communication with the outer world has boen by means of snow shoes and dog sleds. Justice MoMahon was alive to tbe advantages of this Winter traffic He believed tbat it was due to the inereased importance ShoepBhead Bay had grown to in the eyes of that railroad magnate, Heury C. Murphy. Another railroad man, belonging to a rival line, of course, to whom this suggestion was made, intimated tbat Mr. Murphy was a shrewd man and knew what ho waa about that he never would have kept his trains on during the Winter but for fear that it he once stopped running with them down to Flatbush avenue, over the Long Island track, Corbin would never let him pnt then on again. But Jnatice Mo Mahou's idea is probably the right one. Justice McMahon also called attention to the followlug IMPBOVIMKNTS going on. He thought ho might possibly in time remember more but these were eertaln : Colorel linger, a Brooklyn man, has recently put up and is putting up eeveral houses. A Summer residense for Justice Naeher, of abont ten rooms, la going up, built to face the bay. It ia a pretty cottage in the Swiss style. Mr. Ray, who is connasted with tho house of A. T. Stewart k Co., has built a cottage facing the bay. Alouao C. Treadwell, of Now York, baa another one. James B. Voorhies has put up four, Supervisor Mc - Kane being the builder, Robert Yoorhies has built two and has begun another one. Mr. Tonl Dougan, once tho well known keeper of the Home Rule House on Fulton street, and last year In charge of the whisky privilege, at the Shoepshosd Bay track, is building a fine large hotel on the corner of the Depot road and the Bay road, faoing the bay. It is being built on the grounds ot Mrs. Gilbert, and will be first class in all it. appointments. Mrs. Clutejhas finished a nice oottage on the road near the dopot. Mrs, Fell is putting up a largo boarding house on the same street. James B. Voorhies has begun patting up a cottage on Ocean avenue. Mr. Teets has purohased four acres on the Depot road, nearly opposite tbe new boarding houseB and near the Manhattan Railroad Depot, for $8,000. There are other improvements in contemplation, and there are many scheme. In the process of lnoubatlon, the originators of which are anxious to have nothing said about any improvement, at all, because they have not completed their contracts for real estate or ground rents, and are afraid of a t farther boom. Ono of the advantages ol Sbeopihead Bay, forgotten above, is eels, BUNSBLL'S MUSEUM. The sudoess of Bunnell's Maasum siuoe it was opened in tlio building corner of Court and Bern - sen streote shows that the so oalled IU hick which was popularly supposed to attend that house was not duo to its location, and that a variety performance of tha right eort ia certain to meet with favor among Brooklyn theater goer..

It pays a thousand fold in the ooorage demonstrated, in the aympathles aroused, in the increased Intelligence of all nations, and in the advancement of the world's sdenoe. Ever since 1498 the world baa been trying to find ths northwest passage of the Paolflo. John Cabot, Norden.kjold, sir John Franklin, Dr. Kaue, Dr. Hayes this week burled Osptaio Hall, Sir John Nares battlod with'the ice and perished, or, after awful exposure, esoaped to tell us a story that fairly congeals the blood. Who has forgotten tbe sufferings of the franklin party as revealed byLloutenantBchwat - ka ? Sarcophagi of ice, graves of ice, monnments of ioe, temples of ico, Westminster Abbeys of ice. How terribly and overwhelmingly sublime I The world waa determined to know how to cross from oosan to opean at the North Polo oM save a long voyage around Cape Horn. The passage hag proved to bo ubbIoib, so far as the practical serrioes of navigation are concernod, for since we have out this continent in two by the Union Paclflo Railroad, we no more have to make clrault of Cape Horn, aud if the north paasago were possible it would not be takon. Nevertheless, we have increased appre olation of the OOPTtAOB AND ENDURANCE of these explorers, who, on errand of solonce or commerce or mercy, have urn against the Bharp spear of Arctio ice. And now wo have moro freezing revelations as DoLong and a portion of his orew land on the Siberian ooaat. It is the tragedy of Icebergs. It is the canto of eternal Wintor. It ia this kind of mon theDeLongs and tho Franklins and tbe Dr. Kanes and tho Llvingatouea aud the Stanleys who do honor to the human raoe. More now than ever before there are giants among men. Great force of human will conquering fatlgne and hunger and physical woe that they may present the round earth to the cause of geographical discovery. We have found out at last how the world is bounded, on tbe north, on the south, on the east, on tho west, by the ooursge of man and the goodness of God. It is not more what such explorers discover of the features of the globe than what they show of tbe oapaolty of man when ho sets out for great enterprise. The influence of such an example la moat salutary. We want more men of that kind to work the reforms of state and churoh. Knduranee that cannot be frozen out by tbe world's frigidity. If De Long and Franklin and Livingstone can endure so much for aolence, how much ought we to be willing to endure for God I A thousand miles did De Long push through polar seas; but how many of us turn back at the first mile of tho voyage If it bo rough, if it be chilling, if it be Arctio, We want iu church aud state more enduranoe, more heroes, more backbone, more brawn. "O," wo say, "if wo only had some groat ship to Ball, or some - great expedition to command, we, too, would do wonders." Use what matorial you have, put your resourcos to full stretch. Do not cry out for a man of war when Do Long's greatest viotory waB in an Arotio outter. If we do not use the one talent we alroady possess, we would do nothing though we had ten talents. He who is not good in a skirmish would not bo good in a general engagement. What la detaining the Church of God in our day la its namby pamby membership. We have plenty of Christians to sit down in the vineyards and eat grapes, but few De Longs who push out a thousand mllts into the eold, God is fitting out oxpedltiouB on all sides, and men and women are wanting who caro littlo for thoir own comfort and everything for that which thoy can do for othors. Paul oommaudod Riioh an expedition, lrrlederioh Oberlin anothor, Florence Nightingale another, Aloxaudor Duff another, John Howard another, Utahop Aabury another. If wo oanuot command an expedition, we oau join one. Today nil Christendom iy looking in sympathy upon the suffering of the humble men who followed DoLoug. Tho anxiety ie not about their leader he is safe; but, alas I for the poor men that followed him, tho men who paood tbe slushy decks of Arotio seas, the men who climbed the ratlines before they took to tho email boats, oiiio of them never to be hoard from, I fear. When we honor the explorer we rnuat not forgot the suffering asmstauts. When we welcomo the general we muat not disregard the private. When we honor renowned Christian workers, wo muat uot despise the widow with two tultes, the doorkeeper of the Lord's house, tbo men and women who autTer iu Bilence for Christ's sake. WHAT A TIME IT WILL BU whon next SprinK or next Summor DoLong and Ills surviving men get home, and the nation gooa out to greet them. But tho day vflll arrive whon all tho great Christian expeditions shall come back in tho presouoe of many worlds. Not only tho leaders, but the led, not only the oommander but - the commanded, uot only the oolebrated but tbe obscure,, shall get celestial and divine reoognition. As Christ introduces, amid tbe raptures of heaven, His friends, and the question Is asked, "Who aro these Thou lutroduceat into our imperial oompany7" Christ will say: "This is the woman who gave tbo oup of cold water to tho thirsty traveler ; thla is the child who read the Scriptures to her blind niotbor ; this Is tha nurse who rocked the sick child's cradle ; this is the female clerk of the store who patiently endurod vtbe insolence of cus - touiere: this is the mother who brought up her children for God ; this is the mau who forsook not hla religion amid the ridicule of hat fBStory ; this 1b the firomsr, t - !?" ln "v,nS 'i get jid out ot the third story of a burning building ; this iB the sailor of the Arotio oxplorlng party who, kneeling In the storm, prayed that his sins might be whiter than the falling snow." Aud thon Christ, waving His hand over a groat multitude that no man can number, will ay, "They wore sick, they were poor, they were despised, thoy were wronged, they oame out of great tribulation and had thslr rnbos washed and mads white ln the blood of tho Lamb."

Both Cliapmau died in Jamaica recently. He was a prominent business man ln the Eighteenth Ward of Brooklyn. He began life very poor, and died worth about a quarter of a million. Ha raBldad in Jamaica for a number of years. His will was presented for probate before. the surrogate of Queens County last Tuesday, but one of the heirs, Mrs. Eirby, obtained a postponement of action until Friday, proposing to contest tbe will, as she was not treated as liberally as her brothers and sisters. Friday, Judgo Armstrong, tounsol for Mrs, Kirby, asked for a judicial construction of the eighth aestlon of the will, and pending the construction of the eurrogate,the question of contesting tho will is held ln abeyance. Juggp Armstrong examined the witnesses to tho execution of tho will William J, Sayres aud George Skidmore at considerable length. Counsel for the executors asked that the will be admitted to probate at once, but the surrogate denied the motion, and will hear oounsel on the point next Thursday. Section eight of ths will, to which objection is mado, provides tbat the testator's son Theodore and Robert E. Brady shall be permitted to carry on the business iu which tbe testator was engaged, and have the use of the eapltal inveated, for a period of eighteen months, they to have two - thirds of the profits, and the other third to be paid Into tho estate. Fredorlok Fries is permitted to use the capital belonging to the testator aud invested in tbo coal business for the period of eighteen months, on payment to tho estate of a legal rate of Interest, The deceased left two sons and three daughters. Cornelius Chapman la given five houses on Fulton atreet, Brooklyn, and four acres of woodland ln Jamaica, The Brooklyn property is incumbered for $3,600, and that liability Cornelius must assume, Annie E.

Carpenter and Matilda C. Smith. The will waa made last Novomber. Fending settlement of the legal issues, Daniel H. Carpenter will act as temporary administrator. TO EUROPE BI WAY OF 1,030 ISLAXD. lo the JZditor of the BrooUyn Eagle: Your remarks in a recent number of the Eaolx about the proposed oxtenslon of the Long Island Railroad to a deep and oapaolous harbor on tbe North side of Montauk and tbe new line of ateel steamers to connect Milford Haven, Wales, with New York, via. Long Island, are very pertinent. In looking over tho flies of your papor I find under date of September 10, 1872, an alluBion to thla very harbor (an arm of Gardiner's Bay) and calling attention at that time to it. facilities, etc The father of this writer was the author of that letter. He is now deceased, but during the last ten years of bis Hfo he was a firm advocate of something Ilka this very scheme now about to be attempted by the Long Island Improvement Company, as represented by Austin Corbin and Jaoob Lorlllard. Well do we all romember how visionary it wos then '72) thought to be by very many. Tbe prediction then made "of the Infants of that time" living to see such schemes of Long Island's future do - velopmonl will be muoh sooner realized than any of the most sanguine of that decade thought. Tor It ia no fiction nor is it an "unheard of rapidity" for locomotives, with heavy trains attached, to run a mile a minute. They do bo on schedule time on the railroad from London to Brighton, England. There are no heavy grades on Long Island, and thore is no doubt that all the Long Island Improvement Company promise the pabllo in regard to this sew route to England may be accomplished. Fogs and delays at Sandy Hook and Quarantine wlU be avoided, and ISO miles on land can be muoh sooner traveled (twelve or fourteen hours at least) than by coasting ths south aide and crossing the bar of New York Harbor (only at high tide). Pleaso write np this project, and help the natlvoB develop the east end of Long Island. The Eaqlb always ba. been staunch in IU support of looal enterprise. Convince the doubting Thomases and stir up the Rip Van Winkles who aro so Intensely conservative as to be denominated old fogy. 0. H. Q. BRisQEnauf ton, Deoember VI, 1881. A FOUKD OF SOHRTHMG.

Indians whsn Braddock attaokeii It and was slain, To tht Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle ; Is it correct to say "an historical," as so many apparently well informod writers constantly do 7 Aspirate. No. This fs one of the literary afrootationa whioh are observable in writers who, "aw, pweforh tha quill ot the last century," tothe steel pen of this, It Is no more correct than it would be to say "an hen ran around an houso," If the aspirate 1) soanded, the form "a" of the Indefinite article should be used, beoanso tbe form "an" is properly used only beforo worda beginning with a vowel or a vowel sound, and the aspirate is not a Yowel, nor has it a vowel sound. To the Editor of (As Brooiiyn bogle : Will you kindly inform me whether there Is a book for teaching stenography, by whom written, and where to be had 7 ItKADi;li. There have been about two hundred systoni3 of short hand Invented ln England within the past three hundred years, and all may bs called stenography except that Invented by Issaa Pitman, in 1837, whloh is called phonography or phonetie short band. Ot the many systama of stenography, that published by Fanoutt, ln 1840, is spoken of ss very Ingenious ; but no stenographic systom is as complete aud perfect as phonography. fo the Editor of tht Brooklyn Eaglt ; . I noticed in a recent issue of. - the ' Eagle a very sensible question mado by "A Header," ooncernlng a question of law. Ab he may not hare a disciple' of Black - stone, Kent, et at., as an adviser, I send you the following points, which I think will cover bis oase: A having leased to B certain real estate, and B having performed tbe oonditions of the contract on bis part up to tho time of A's death, and there remaining an unexpired part of tho term, tho hoirs of A would take the eBtate, charged with the veatod rlghte of B. The contracts a party makes bind by implication those coming after him. I base this anBwer upou the supposition that the lease is a valid one and that there has bean no breach of any of the oondltlone. O. B. M. To f he Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle ! I often, in fact, generally, fiud the plural of money Bpelt "monlea," and of whisky, "whiskies." Now, If thi. right, why don't they spell tho plural of key, "kles"7 . PusMina. The rule learned by all sohool children is that a final i'y," not preceded by a vowel, is changed into on taking a suffix beginning with a vowel ; but they ap - . poar to forget it as they grow up. Therefore, tbe plural of money should be spelled moneye. The next article mentioned may bs spelled either whiskey or whisky. If you prefer whiskey long your plural should be 'whiskeys ; " if you take it short, your plural will be "whlsklos." This Is as straight as we oan give It to you. To the Editor of the Hrooklyn Eagle : Is it correct to spoak of a large number of whales as a herd, or a sohool of whales 7 A herd Is used to describe a number ot animals, and especially of the larger species, when collected together; a sohool, or a Bhoal, refers to a largo oolleottou of fiahea only. If whales are regarded as fishes, a collection of them may be .poken of a. a school. But the whalyj is not a fish ln tha full .ense of the term. He la exclusively aquatic ; but he does not, as do tha true fishes, breathe tbroujh tho medium of the water by mean of gills. Ho is, therefore, generally regarded as an animal, aud the sexes are distinguished as the bull and )he cow, and their young as the calf ; and In speaking of a large number swimming together, it would be Just as correot to call them a herd as a eohool. To tht Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle: : : I am a regular reador of your paper, and have noticed that many pooplo apply to jou for infor - mation and thBt you kindly give it. And as there are somo things I would like to know the rule or law. about which I think you oan inform me, I write to you as the easiest way to get it The facts are these : We bava a back room in ths third atory ot a tenement bouse, and the peoplo oconpying tbe front room insist upon locking tbe door leading to tbe ecuttle, and although we have requeated them to unlock it they will nni rir, n hut keen it looked and take the key out.
