now an ccui Iiohe-1 fact ar J that the SeTeDth
Expytiiion in imw io r.rugrea.
Fur man uiunir.a jact the average Cincinca
tun l.aa heard of but Jiltle else than the coming
event anJ now we have it here in all its glory.
I neel nut take up jour time with tbe recital
of the oi-enin ceremonies anJ the great proces
sion, how the occasion was honored by the prea-J
ence of the President, the (joenora of stir 1
roucdmg States and other high dignitaries. The
farade was a big thing and crowds of people
ined the streets along its course. The Miilit&ry
made a fine showmg as usual and were the at
tractive feature. borne of the companies re
mained in camp in the vicinity of the city for
several davs alter the opening parade.
Every available space at the Eipooition seems
to be lully occupied and many exhibitors are
complaining for the lack of space, as having to
reduce their exhibits on that account.
There is some complaint among the exhibitors
on account of an apparent unlimited rpace being
allowed the pop-corn and candy stands, although
it is said thev pay Land-omely for their privil
eges. Hut it works to the disadvantage of more
creditable exhibits and is certainly against the
spirit of the Exposition.
The buildings are situated on the 14th and
Eltn streets and have a frontage on Elm street of
372 feet 4 inches, and the depth of the same to
1'lum street, 233 leet. The highest pinnacle is
in the front and center ol the Main Hall and
reaches an altitude of 150 feet. In style the
buildings are a modernized gothic, material of
bright red pressed brick with stone trimmings.
The total cot was about i00,fXlO, including
the Great Organ, of which we may speak in a
Being prenent at the opening and having come
to stay, we have taken a more leisurely view of j
matters than perhaps we otherwise should have :
The JSecrttary's oSce is in the front corner of
the south wing, and his corp-t ol clerks are very
busy with the detaiU of the office. Every ar
rangement seems to be complete for g'Kd order at
the entrance gates. The price of admission is,
' Your 2o cent piece." The persoii wishing ad
mission must have exactly 25 cents, and a " "
cents' in one piece, no other change or money is
allowed to be taken at the turnstiles, but change
can be had near by.
Exhibitors and Employees have coupon books
from which is taken a single coupon each time
the person enters. These books contain about
100 coupons, and as they cost the exhibitor
$2.00 each it brings each entrance to 2 cents, if
all the coupons are used. Each Exhibiting firm
may enjoy the privilege of two of these books and
an additional one for an employee at the same
rate. Each entry made for competition is charg
able with the sum of 2.
Compiimentaries enter through the Secretaries'
office, exhibitors and employees at the north gate
and the regular v.sitors at the various gates in

The buildings are open 'until 10 o'clock at
night, and it is in the evenings that the- elite of
the city make their appearance. So far the at
tendance has not exceeded 10,000 per day.
Pawing through one ol the turnstiles we en
tered the open paved space in front of the build
ings and ascended the steps leading to the vesti
bule of the main hall ; here we pause a minute
and take a survey of this hall.
The first thing which meets the gaze of the
visitor is " No smoking,' (chewing or spitting
might be added as it is carried on to ac un
limited extent.) Immediately on the left of the
aisle is a beautilul ebonized case containing an
elegant collection of furs shown by A. E. Burk
hardt ic. Co. of this city. Ermine, seal, mink
and sahiir. Among their display of lap-robes and
carriage uiatn the patchwork fur, both in design
and execution, is a study for the ladies fond of
patch work quilts. Opposite this is an immense
case ol icloss starch, both pulverized and crystal
ixed. L. Mueller Sc. Son have among their blown
glass goods, a spun and woven glass table-cloth.
It is so fine that many persons would be puzzled
to distinguish it from silk. Dr. Lewis of New
port, Kv., in his dei.tal case, nhows a lady's jaw
at work, which never tire, but fortunately it
has not the pxer of f.eech. F. Wagner has
four canes of optical, iu-roscopical, and mathe
A fine collection ol laces shown by W. (j.
Caldwell fc Co. attract great attention, and the
ladies always stop to admire.
The shark's teeth, sea-shell and fish scale jewel
ry uteit have two stands here, and are ottering
some novelties for sale in these goods.

adjustable chair from Chicago. These chairs se
cured the medal at Paris last year.
In a little hexagon building is shown a new
artifical leather, while the building itself is lined
and trimmed with Spurr's paired veneer. It is
so periect that it would defy tl.e best experts to
distinguish its fraud, imitation is so periect. It
is to take the pi. ice of expensive furnitures in
manufacture. No sooner do we arrive at a
genuine art than an imitation i- forced upon the
public. J. L. Wayne ol Min Street shows some
very fine home manufactured cutlery, door trim
rufi and household hardware. These goods
are of excellent quality and show what can be
done in this country, and that Ohio can be proud
of her manufactories. J. It. Schroder is showing
a fine 1 t of door locks, many of which would

promptly at the time announced and commenced j
with an overture in D major l.y Handel. As the
peals of the great organ rolled and swelled across (
the hall and vibrated along the corridors, the
throng of people forgot their surroundings in !
their admiration of the master-work of the per-
former. The next piece was a fantasie. This i

to the roar upon roar thrown out with such

whisper to awe and admiration. In the military

New Zealand Cherries.
A fruit dealer on Muket street incensed at the
berlies taken by the loafers with his wares dw-
playcl at the door, lac.-I a half gallon of Cay
enne ppp-ers in a basket, labial it"ew Zea
land Cherries," and hung it in a Cun icuous
lace in front cf hi stand. In a few minutes the
next-door merchant sauntered up. inquired how
trade was, p icked up a New Zealand cherry,
placed it in his mouth, and suddenly left to at
tend to a customer. The Kcv. Dr. Dolly n-xt
rounded to, observed that the yellow-fever news
from Memphis was not very encouraging this
morning. ah ! it had been years since he had
eaten a New Zealand cherry; whereupon he ate
one, remarked that it wa supurb. wipd his
weeping eves on his coat-sleeve, supp-osed that
New Zealand was getting waimer every year,
wished the dealer good morning, and departed,
lamenting the growing weakness of his eyes in the
euniignt. . enronic aeaa-oeat then came up
took a injutliful of cherries, spluttered them out,
with an imprecation, all over the fruit, stuffed a
rear, a banana, and bunch of grapes into his
mouth to take out the taste, informed the dealer
that he would bave him prosecuted for keeping
green fruit, and went down the street to the
pump. A lady with two children next appeared,
stopped to admire the cherries, asked if she might
not just taste them, she never had seen any be
fore, supplied the children and walked away,
walked away with a face Eery with scorn and
anger, while the children set upa bowl that
brought all the people to the doors and windows,
and drove all the policemen off the street. Thus
far the fun went on all the morning. The fruit
dealer never laughed so much in his life. The
occupants of the adjacent and opposite stores and
a shoal of email boys soon learned what was up,
and watched and joined in a ringing roar as each
new victim tried cherries. Finally a solemn
looking countryman lounged up, inquired the
price ol them 'ere New Zealand cherries,' in
vested in them a pint, put one in bis mouth, took
it out again, gave the fruit-dealera lingering look
of mild reproach, pulled of his coat, and " waded
into" him. When he left, the fruitman with
tendencies to practical jokes had a blue eve, a red
noe, a purple face, a sprained wrist, and several
bushels of fruit scattered around among the small
boys, wbile the same ringing roar of laughter
was going up from the lookers-on.
The Position of Affairs in China.
To the Dlilor of the Xorth-Ch'm'i Daily .Veir.
By force of events, Peking, the capital of
China, has become tho open field of diplomatic
rivalry. Affairs in that city have taken the same
tournure as in Constantinople. It is so to speak
a permanent tournament for the supremacy be
tween France, England, Kussia and Germany.
The United States, since the death of their ever
lamented Minister Durlingame, have conducted
their affairs at the Chinese capital in a quiet but
dignified way, well becoming to a llctiublican
form of Government.
- Germany, of all the great Powers, is the last
wdo lias maue a treaty wan iinna, nut she is to-
day the most exacting, the most menacing. The
German Minister at Peking has taken the lead in
the most important question of the day in
China, viz., to have abolished the lekin (war jax)
upon merchandise carried from. the sca-ports into
the interior? which tax is very detrimental to
foreign trade; by so doing. Germany has consti
tuted berselt the champion and defender of the
foreigners and of foreign interests in this quarter
of the world. It takes s Minister with strong
sentiment of duty and of grasp of mind, for at
once taking hold of a good opportunity with the
aim of bringing his own nation prominently be

said Colt, ' I'll give you something provided
you take a glass of brandy and water with me
and let me mix the drink I'll give you 500."

Colt said lie would give under no other consider

held in the balance again-1 the good cause, and
finally the man yielded. Colt gave him an unus

500. The man started on a run almoet for his
house, and went to bed as speedily as possible,
having a boat d Colt's brandy and' check as heavy
weights, and when he awoke sober-minded he
looked at the $500, and forgave himself his tem
porary stupor, and has since to this day been a
consistent temperance man.

Missionary As good a Bible?
Cetewayo Yes. You see your Bible m elastic.
; It stretches so as to cover almost anything you
want to do. For instance, you want my land.
You look into yoar Bible. You find that it com
mands you to go abroad and preach the Gospel
to every creature. If the creatures won't hear
you, you make them hear you with your guns.
You take their land. Then, of course, they must
hear your Gospl. You have the pleasure of con
verting them and getting their land besides.
That is a good Bible. 1 wish I had such good
guns. I would have such a Bible also.
Missionary Would you like to visit England.
Cetewayo Can you roast me a whole ox daily?
Missionary Well, King, the fact is we haven't
got quite enough beef for our own people.
Cetewayo Why do you keep so many more
people than you can feed well? Why don't you
kill the runts when they're first born ? j
Missionary King, that is murder.
Cetewayo So is slow starvation. I have
beard that many of your people don't get enough

Cetewayo Yes, yes. It says thou shalt not
covet thy neighbor's ox, nor bis ass, nor his

they shoot, don't you?

your one wife always company for you ?
Missionary Oh, certainly.
Cetewayo Do you always stay at home even-

sudden business just after eupper, eh ?
Cetewayo Well ? It seems to be all well with
you. No. 1 don't like your civilization. It talks
nicely on paper and in pulpit. No. The only

Fever and ague has been spreading rapidly in
the valley of the Connecticut river in the last few
years, having been extending from the westward;
and it is getting to be the prevailing disease in
that region, making its appearance in places
where it has hitherto been unknown. Sometimes
it is of the ordinary type, and sometimes accompa
nied by congestive chills, when it is almost al
ways fatal. Where it appears it supplants ty
phoid fever, which has been the prevailing dis
ease. The existence of large areas of low and
marshy land may in part account for the appear
ance of the fever and ague, though it remains to
explain why the disease has not previously pre
vailed. But the drainage and cultivation of
these lands would doubtless be promotive of good

The growth of the Roman Catholic Church in

half a century. Thesis States were first erected
into an Episcopal See in 10S. But even as late
as 1S25 this See comprised only one bishop, three
