We commend our review of the week with some details of what we saw at Wesleyan Grove, last Saturday.
We noticed many improvements, and beheld some splendid cottages already completed or in process of construction. Those of Nathaniel Wales, Esq., and Mr. Buckminster, of New Bedford, are beauties. We think that of Mr. B’s is the tastiest cottage on the ground.
Mr. Charles Worth, of this town is building a very large cottage for Senator Sprague of Rhode Island. It is to be hoped that the beauties of this delightful grove and the bracing and invigorating qualities of the Vineyard air may serve as tonics to the worthy Senator, and eradicate every symptom of political biliousness, which of late has so disturbed his peace of mind. He will find more refreshing baths, then has been his wont while he “bathed in the sea of troubles” of our distracted country.
Capt. Asa R. Gifford, of this town has built a fine grocery store just opposite the Picture Gallery of Shute & Sun. He has not yet occupied it but will soon have a choice assortment of Camp Meeting articles.
Mr. Berry of Holmes Hole, has purchased and occupies the store of Brock & Gifford, and will continue in the grocery business.
Several fine cottages are being built by Messrs. Riple, Hobart & Co. The sounds of axe, hammer and other metal tools are heard from “Early morn till close of day.”
The acting superintendent, Sirson P. Coffin, Esq., is at work with his accustomed vigor and energy, clearing the grounds and providing means for the comfort of all visitors.
Not the least of the convenient features of this Association is the branch of Post Office established here, and which went into effect last Monday. The office is in charge of Mr. Coffin. Letters from abroad should be address “Wesleyan Grove, New Bedford.”
A very conspicuous feature of the Grove is the new fence just erected. Said fence is firmly built, is seven and one-half feet high, with sharpened pickets, suggesting unhappy and unpleasent thoughts of what might be the unlucky wight who should attempt to “run guard.” He would find a sharp lookout on that “picket line.”

Pease’s Express

We learn that the headquarters for Pease’s Express at the Camp Ground and Oak Bluffs is in the store of Capt. A. R. Gifford, - where will be found some one to attend to the wants of the “city in the woods.”

Oak Bluffs

On these “heretical” grounds the improvements the past year are very decided and marked. We learn that about thirty cottages have been erected here. New stores, boarding houses, a splendid saloon, and other buildings have risen from the stumps of trees, and now adorn the lands.
Messrs. Ralph Cleavland and William Bradley of this twon have the largest and best arranged store in the Grove, and we may say in the Country. Every thing may be found here that the oldest Camp Meetinger could wish to fill to overflowing his cup of Camp Meeting or Oak Bluffs bliss. The store looks as neat as waxwork, and is ornamental as well as useful.
A very tastefully arranged saloon, belonging to Mr. Baxter from the Cape is close by this store. A boarding house kept by Mrs. Julia A. Worth of Holmes Hole, is conveniently arranged and is sure of being well patronized.
The staunch wharf built by the Oak Bluffs Association two years ago has now become the landing place of the whole institution. The fact of it is the gentlemen of this corporation have spent their money to advantage for the comfort of sojourners, and their pecuniary reward is sure.
