can Independence, by boldin; an International
hxbihuion of arts, maiiuructures, ami products ol
tbe soil and miue," authorized tbe creation of
tbe United Centennial Commisson, and entrusted
to it the tnanapenient of the exhibition. This
body is composed of two commissioners from each
Stale nnd Territory, nominated by the respective
Governors, and commissioned by tho President
of the United States. Tbe enterprise, therefore,
is a distinctly national one. and not. as has some
times been slated, the work of a private corpora
tion. The exhibition will be opened on May lOlh.
187C, and remain open every day. except Sunday,
nntil November I Oth. There will be a fixed
price uf fifty cents for admission to ail the build
ings and grounds.
The Centennial grounds are situated on the
western bank of the Schuylkill river, ant! within
Fuirmo'iut park, the largest park in promixity 10
u great city in the world, and one of the most
beautiful in the country. The park contains
3, 100 acres, 450 of which has been enclosed for
the exhibition, liesi ies this tract, there will be
large yards near by for Ibo exhibition o.' stock,
anil a farm of forty-two acre3 hu3 already beea
suitably planted for de tests bt plows, mowers,
reapers, ai.d other agricultural machinery.
The exhibition building are approached by
eight lines of street curs, which connect with all
the other lines of the city, and by the Pennsyl
vania und Heading railroads, over the tracks ot
which trains will also run from the Xorlb Penn
sylvania und Philadelphia. Wilmington and Bal
timore railroads. Thus the exhibition is in im
mediate connection with the entire railroad sys
tem of the country, and anyone within ninety
miles of Philadelphia can visit it at no greater
cost than that of cairiago hire at the Paris or
The articles to be exhibited have been classi

part, will be located in appropriate buildings,

This provides nearly ten more acres for exhib
iting space than there were at Vienna, the largest
international exhibition yet held. Yet the ap
plications of exhibitors have been so numerous as
to exhaust the space, and many important classes
of objects must be provided lor in special build
ing. Ad important special exhibition will be made
by the Uuilci) Stales Government, and is being
prepared under the supervision of a board of
officers representing the several executive de
partments ol the Government. A Gne building
o( 4.i ucre3 is provided for the purpose, space in
which will be occupied by the war. treasury, navy,
interior, postoffice and agricultural departments,
and the Sniitlisoniun Institute.
The Women's Centennial Executive Commit
tee have raised SJO.000 for tbe erection of a pa
vilion in which to exhibit every kind of woman's
work. To this collection women of all uutions
are expected to contribute.
Tbe list of special buildings is constant!' in
creasing, and present indications are that their
total number will be from 200 to 250. Most of
the important foreign nations England, Ger
many, Austria, prance, Qweucu, r.gypt, Japan
and others are patting up one or more structures
The Isiluud ol' iiutIiiloupe.
The island of Gaadaloupe is a French colony,
and is one of the best cultivated and most pros
perous of the West Indies. Its urea is 400 655
acres, which in 1872 were apportioned thns :
Cultivated land, 73 835 acres ; pasturo land, 52.
820 acres ; forest land. 1 70,527 acres ; waste and
uncultivated land. 93 373 acres. Tbe lax upon
cultivated land is 17 centimes, or about one
penny three farthings per acre aunually. The
nnmber of landowners amounts to 12G5, nearly
! nil of whom are ! rench Creoles ; the estates vary
i in size from 5000 to 2J;' acres. There are 4737
rented properties, of which alwut two-thirds also
belong to r rench Urooles. v ery lew ol the col
ored population either own or rent land beyoud
a few perches of garden ground. Upon the large
estates ibmaines a single staple product, such
a3 cotton, coffee, or sugar cane, is grown for ex
portation, whilst the small cultivators petiti
habitants are chiefly occupied io producing
grain and vegetables for consumption in the isl
and. The last class form the real peasantry of
the colony, and aie the chief providers of the
duily food of the inhabitants ; they ore in general
nn industrious and well-to-do class. The petils
habitants occupy 51(19 plantations, none of which
exceed 80 acres in extent. The rent vanes from
30s. to SUA, per acre. ThBse plantations cover
12.530 ucres, and give employtueul to 13.35u' per
sons. The products chiefly cultivated upon these
farms are the usual tropical ones manioc, yams,
sweet potatoes, ignames. cocons. meluugas, am!
pine apples ; rice and maize are the only grains.
Amongst the fruits, bunanas. grapes, and bread
fruits hold the ptiucipal place. The bouses at
tached to these farms are comparatively very
large, although but little cars is bestowed upon
their structure. They are often 120 feet long by
CO in breadth, and are divided by wooden parti
tions into three upartmenls ; tbe kitchen is in tbe
centre, the sleeping-room upon tho left, and the
store-room upon the right. Theso apartments
are entered from a verandah in Irout by doors of
palm-wood secured by clumsy wooden locks.
The bouses are built ot timber, generally orange
or citron, painted while und covered with a palm
thatch, as a Safe guard against the violeuco of the
hurricanes, they are seldom more than one story
I high. The furniture is of the most primitive
kind hammocks, tables, cheats and cane-chairs
are the chief items. A little In tho rear of tho
!ion;o is a long, low building, in which are con
tained under one roof the baru, stable, and byre.
The farm is iuvariably surrounded with u close
fence of orange or lemon trees and is divided
into two parts one for pasture and theother for
cultivation. About every six years the arable
laud. Is sown down und the lea broken up ; gains: -grass
is the only gramineous plant grown. Tbe
farmer carefully und assiduously cultivates tliu
soil, though his implements are of the most
wretched character. Tbe plough, which is n
primitive wooden affair is drawn by a couple of
oxen ; long leather belts fastened to the horns of
the oxen serve as reins. Carls, spudes, und bur
rows are also entirely of wood, generally that of
tbe palm. Tbe work upon these small farms is
performed by the owner and his family, assisted
by laborers, hired at tho rate of two francs and
their rations per diem. It is upon this class of
farms, too, that nearly all the cattle in the island
are kept. The only animals kept by the large
planters are oxen and mules for ploughiog and
carting, and horses for riding and driving. Ever7
each for egbibiliuc purposes, or for tho use of small farmer keeps at leaal a pair of oxen, a cou-

Wiscunsiu, Iowa and Delaware, and it is likely
that others will follow the example.
A number of trade and industrial associations,
which require largo arnonnts of space, will be pro
vided for in special buildings. Among these aro
tbe photographers, the carriago builders, the glass
makers, the cracker bakers, ibe boot and shoe
manufacturers, besides quite a number of indi
vidual exhibitors. Tbe great demands for space
will probably render tbis necessary to a consider
able extent, especially for exhibitors who have
been tardy in making their applications. In the
main exhibition building, for example, 333,300
square feet of space had been applied for by the
beginning of October by American exhibitors
only ; whereas tbe aggregate space which it bus
been possible to reserve for the United Slates
Department is ouly 1C0.OOO square feet, about
one-third of which will be consumed by passage
ways. Tbe machinery building, like the others, is al
ready fully covered by applications. There are
about '..000 American exhibitors in tbis Depart
ment, 150 English and 150 Irom other European
countries which is about 250 more than entered
the Vienna machinery exhibition. Extra pro
vision is being made lor annexes to accommodate
tbe hydraulic machinery, the steam hammers, the
forges, hoisting engines, boilers, plumbers, car
Power in tbe machinery ball will be chiefly
supplied by a pair of monster Corliss engines.
Each cylinder is 40 inches in diameter, with a
stroke of ten feet ; the fly-wheel is 31 feet in
diameter and Weighs 55 tons ; theborse power is
1,400 and the number of boilers is 20. This en
gine drives about a mile of shafting.
For ibe an exhibition, the most eminent
American artists are understood to be at work,
and it may be confidently stated that, especially
in the department Of landscape painting, tbe
United Slates will present a finer display than
tbe public has been led to expect. Quite aside
from the contributions of American artists, ap
plications from abroad call for more than four
times tbe exhibiting space afforded by the great
Memorial Hall. Provision for the surplus will
be made in temporary fire-proof buildings, though
all exhibiting nations will be represented in tbe
central art gallery.
The Secretary of the Navy has arranged that
a United States war vessel slull call next spring
at convenient European ports, to collect and
transport bitber to the exhibition the works of
American artists resideut in Europe. Among
the ports thus far designated, are Southampton
for England, HaTre for "France, Bremen for Ger
many, nnd Leghorn for Italy, to which, if desira
ble, others may be added,

designed tbe groups for the plinth for the great

in Lambeth, the one which symbolizes America.
Tbe figures in this gronp are colossal, covering
a ground space of 15 feet square. It will proba
bly be placed in the great central gallery, oppo
site the principal entrance.
Tbe art exhibition will include, io addition to
tbe works of contemporary artists, representative
productions of the past century of American art
those, for instance, of Staart, Copely, Trum
bull, West, Allaton, Selly.' Neagle, Elliott; Ken

by living artists, will be passed npon by the Com

A large number of orders and fraternities have
signified tbeir intention to hold gatherings at
Philadelphia daring tbe period of (be exhibition.
Among those which may now be enumerated,
are the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, Independ
ent Order of Odd Fellows ; the Grand Encamp

blazed, and made cascades of colored stars in the

and his suite expressed themselves as highly
pleased. Bnt still more emphatic was the ham
of approbation from hundreds of Bedoains who
were squatted about, like statues in white dra

Queensland has never been slow in responding
to calls to show what her people are doing. The
colony has exhibited wherever exhibitions weie
open ioter-colonial and international in Syd
ney, Melbourne, London and Vienna. We have
also had many exhibitions within oor own terri
tory, nnd, as a whole, the community has been
satisfied with the efforts thus made lo illustrate
the progress of the colony. It has now been
determined to exhibit at the approaching exhi
bition in Philadelphia. Parliament has voted
300 for the purpose, anJ, with the aid of tbe ex.
cellent collection of Queensland products in
London, it hi believed that a creditable appear
ance will be made at Ihs contest of nations in
America. Mr. Daintree, the Agent Genera' n
huglund, who goes Irom there as Commissioner,
is a host in himself. He is well acquainted with
the resources of the colony especially well ac
quainted with its mineral resources.
But, since tbe vote was passed, a new concep
tion has taken possession of Queensland. Mr.
Amburst broached the subject ia Parliament, and
since tben the idea has been caught up in till
quarters, that we ought to get, as well as give,
information in America. It was seen at once
that the opportunity was tbe best ever offered to
learn wuat the Americans are doiog in walks of
life similar to these followed by ourselves. That
they excel in the urts of colonization is beyond
In settling people upon a country in its native
wildness, and iu tbe face of extremes of climate
and of danger from active foes of the white man,
the Americans are first amongst nations. It was
a natural impression, therefore, that Irom such a
people much could be learned which would be
useful to Australian colonists, and by what has
every appearance of unanimous consent, Angus
Muckny, of the editorial staff of this journal, has
been selected as tbe man to get the information
desired. The Government responded lo the call
promptly. Mr. Muckay was offered the responsi
ble task, and accepted it. nil are, thurelore.
more than usually interested in what is to trans
pire in America, next year.
Tho task of Mr. Mackay will be no sinecure. In
addition to attending the Exhibition with his
cnllengue, the Agent General, ami seeiog that
the colony has due prominence there, he is to
look into the work of settlement as carried on iu
the cuontries on the Pacific side. He also. goes
into the Western and Southern States. From
the latter we trust to have reports that will be
instructive and interesting lo the plautiug inte
rests. From tho West much should be obtained
touching sheep and slock firming npon tho large
scale followed iu tbeso States. California, Colo
rado, Arizona, and the neighboring Stutes, ought
to afford us information upon mining. There may
not be much lo be seen thoru that will be now to
Australian miners (who aro not slow in embrac
ing improvements), but there is assuredly much
to ioterest. From all quarters wo ought lo learn
a great deal that will be valuable to our agricul-
turiats and mechanics ; and especially valuable in
i our road and railway making.

The Prin-c ol Walcn.-IUs Visit to
The correspondent of the London Times de
scribes the incidents of tho visit of tho Prince of
Wules to Egypt, and of his reception in India.
Of his visit to the Pyramids ho writes :
His Royal Highness then galloped back lojoin
his parly und drive to
in time for the sunset. Tho party drove in two
breaks furnished by the Khedive ; the first drawn
by six horses, the second by four. The road had
been mended especially for the Prince's visit,
and the Pyramids were reached in an hour. The
country is still much under water, and for the
most of the way tbe road lay through broad,
shining lakes. But here aud there ibe waters
had subsided, and every dry patch was ulreudy
covered with green. It is a wonderful thing tbis
inundation. Year by year, for thousand of years,
the Nile has come down at tho same season, in
much the same quantity, and has spread fertility
over the valley. Egypt expects her annual gift
as surely as the Arab looks for the sun lo rise in
the morning, and until the Nile runs dry
this must be one of the richest countries in
the world. The sun was just going down as ibe
party reached the Pyramids, but tbe after
glow, that peculiar glory of Eypl, a full compen
sation for a brief twilight, remained for some
lime npon the valley, and the view was very
striking. On the one side, one looked over the
shining sheets of water to the white buildings of
Cairo, the fairy, spiral minaretes of the citadel
mosque, from which were already hung the lamps
of Ramadan, and the long yellow range of the
Mokattan hill ; and, on tho other side, pusl tbe
Grand Pyramid to Ibe lonely sterile Libyan des
ert, broken by no tree or sign of life. None of
the party either ascended the Pyramid or visited
the interior. Tbe Prince had already made the
ascent, and ibis timo he contended himself with
strolling about the Pyramids and visiting the
Sphinx and Abe tombs. Mustapha Pasha and
Seller Pasha, two high officials of the Kedive,
were in attendance, and, among other things, bad
AN ARAB DANCE.
for his Royal Highness. Tho dance of the
Gbawazee, who correspond to tho Iudian danc
ing girls known as Nautcb girls, is much es
teemed by native Egyptians. It is the opera of
tbe true Oriental, who lies on bis cushion and
follows every molion, as tbe tale of Eastern love
the dance usually represents is gradually unfolded.
But tbe sight to Western eyes, though curious
as an old national custom, was neither beautiful
oor pleasiug, and the girls, dressed io loose Turk
ish dress, were neither pretty nor graceful.
A sumptuous dinner was provided io tbe cha
let or kiosque that was boilt for tbe convenience
of the Empress of the French at the time of her
risit. After dinner came tbe event of the even
illumination or the oreat pyramid.
It was a bold undertaking the lighting up of a
pyramidal mass 4C0 feet high, presenting two
sides, each 730 feet long, and broken into con
stantly recurring shadows by over 200 courses of
stone, each forming a ledge or platform round tbe
pyramid. However, complete success rewarded
the courage of the two Pashas. First, Bengal
fires, placed at short intervals round the pyramid,
were lighted, and each stone shone out as clear
as day. Rockets, Roman candies, and other
