One year, in advance......................§6 00 All communications should bo addressed to 7 AND 9 WAMIEN STRKKT, Entered according to Act of Congress, in the yeiir 1871, by C. W. SWEET, In the Office of the Librarian of Congress, at Washington. 2fo reeeipt for money due the Real Esrr.\TE Record will be acknowledged unless signed by ono of our regular collectors, Henry D.

A RUMOR to the effect that the Department of Parks had decided upon the abolition of the system of Riverside Parks, was put into circula¬ tion about three weeks sinoe, and has obtained considerable credence with many persons. We are enabled to state authoritatively that there is no truth whatever in the report, but, on the contrary, the Department of Parks intend im¬ mediately tp commence active operations on the Riverside Parks, and will push the work vigor¬ ously to its completion. We are sure that property holders along that line will hail this intention of the Park Board with pleasure, for if ever a body of men have waited patiently to see something for their money, the owners of Riverside Park prop¬ erty may be set down among the number. The following are among the laws affecting New York City, passed at the late session of the Legislature: CBAPTER 570. AN ACT in relation to changing the present grades and establishing new grades for certain streets in the city of New Tork. Passed April 18, 1S71; three-fifths being present .
