' WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22, 1871.
The celebration which has been appointed to
take place in this city on the 4th of Jnly,
137G, will be in many respects the moat re
markable festival the world haa ever seen.
What other nation has a birthday to celebrate?
or what nation can point back to such a cen
tury of national life and growth as that which
will close for the United States of America
five brief years hence ? A great experiment
has been tried, and, despite all the acknow
ledged imperfections of onr political system,
it has been a success. Not merely have the
people of the United States prospered nnder
a republican form of government, but their
example has been most potent in inspiring
changes ' in the long-established order of
things in the Old World which cannot
Lot affect in an extraordinary
manner the whole future of the human race.
The word "liberty"' now has a meaning to the
great mass of the people of Europe which it
certainly did not have a century ago, and
even in far-distant Japan the last few years
have seen the breaking up of a feudal system
which had endured for centuries, and the
Commencement of a reform which Will proba
bly revolutionize the whole of Asia. Our re
publio has not succeeded without passing
through a dreadful ordeal which threatened
its very existence, but that it did succeed in
crushing the gigantic rebellion of the slave
owners has demonstrated to the world that a
free government may also be a strong one,
when there is a necessity for the exhibition
of strength, and has raised the United States
to the position of a first-class power which
other nations admire, respect and fear.
The centennial anniversary of the signing
f the Declaration of Independence should bo
celebrated in a manner worthy of the occa
sion. The whole world will be invited to
rejoice with us, and the celebration will
attract thousands of curious and interested
visitors from every quarter of the globe. A
grand exposition of the world's industry has
been fixed upon as the proper method of
honoring the completion of the first century
of onr national life; and this city, where the
Declaration of Independence was signed, and
where still stands Carpenters' Hall and the
old State House, will be the place where the
exposition will be held. The whole expense
of preparing for the exposition of 187G has,
through the petty meanness of Congress, been
thrown upon Pennsylvania and Philadelphia;
but we are able to bear the burden, if neoes-
sary, and will endeavor to make such prepa
rations that there will be no occasion to say
that the citizens of Philadelphia, at least, did
not do their part towards making the national
anniversary a brilliant suocess.
The work of preparation for the great
exposition, however, is one of magnitude,
and the time is none too long for the task to
be performed. Governor Geary yesterday
appointed Messrs. W. J. Horstmann and
Morton McMichael, of Philadelphia, and Mr.
William Phillips, of Pittsburg, as State
Commissioners from Pennsylvania to co
operate with the other State commissions
and the national commission in making pre
parations for the centennial celebration, and
be also recommended that the Legislature
should make a liberal appropriation. This
the Legislature should do, and it should also
take Buoh other action in the matter as will
facilitate the preparations about to be com
menced. The city of Philadelphia, however,
is particularly interested in the sucoesa
of the exhibition, and the most
active interest should be displayed
in it by all olasses in the community. It will be
a great thing to have the centennial anniver
sary celebrated here, and it is better to com
mence at once to prepare for it and to pre
pare thoroughly, than to leave some of the
most important matters to the last moment.
Our merchants, manufacturers, and the re
presentatives of all the industries which con
stitute the greatness of Philadelphia, owe it
to themselves to take public action at as
early a day as possible towards promoting the
suocess of the centennial, and committees and
fcub-committees should be formed without
further delay, so that the whole machinery
may be got into operation, and the great en
terprise fairly started. Few persons have any
adequate idea of the magnitude of, the work
to be performed in preparing for such a cele
bration as it is proposed to hold here; and
as ample official notice of the intention to
bold a grand international exposition must
be sent to every part of the habitable globe,
the sooner a commencement is made the bet
ter it will be.
THE RE VOL! IN PARIS.
One ef the most serious grievanoes com
plained of by the leaders of the Parisian
revolt 1b the removal of the French Assem
bly to Versailles; and yet the necessity of
that removal Is fully demonstrated by the
revolutionary outbreak. It is extremely
doubtful whether a republic can ever be per
manently established in France, unless some
other and smaller city than Paris la selected
as the capital. It is an old trick of the Parisian
mobs to overawe the National Assembly, and
thus to compel it to adopt, as the legal
embodiment ef the will of a mighty people,
the crazy decisions of Jaoobin clubs or of
Communist phalanxes, ' To insure the power
of exercising similar.terrorism in future, the
iusurgeut leaders have made an insolent de
mand that the present National Assembly
must return to Paris by the 23d instant ("to
morrow), and accompanied this domand by
the threat that if such a removal is not mode
the National Guard will march to Versailles
and disperse the representatives of the whole
nation. Meanwhile Paris resounds with
threats that the National Guard will shoot M.
Thiers, who has been legally selected as the
bead of the new national government; and
a distinct issue seems to be formed whether
the violent men of Paris shall rule Franoe, or
whether all her citizens shall have a fair op
portrait) .-Ctliberate and decide upon the
!il i,V)tKi r i which affect their welfare.
- Jib if selfish, unreasoning, rampant, and
sanguinary lied Republicanism that makes
such unreasonable demands at a moment
when the Thiers Government is embarrassed
by manifold difficulties and dangers arising
from the German invasion, Amerioans, who
unite with their love of liberty an equal love
of law and order, can have no sympathy.
Some of the insurgent chiefs have issued a
proclamation declaring that "what is most
wanted now Is order in liberty and by liberty,"
but their followers have not even a faint con
ception of the true method of gaining this
end; and their recent actions indicate that
local disorders would destroy any true French
republic that made Paris its capital.
It may be that out of the existing evil good
will come, by arousing the hostility of the
provinces to Parisian domination. The lead
ing capitals in the United States were pur
posely fixed at comparatively obscure towns
and cities to avoid difficulties like those which
now endanger the French Government; and
the fact that such a danger was worthy of
serious consideration in this country proves
that it possesses fearful magnitude in France.
In the existing conflict the greatest diffi
culties that the new government Is obliged
to contend with are the comparative tardi
ness of the provinces in marshalling troops
to sustain their representatives, and the won
derful celerity with which the Parisians act
when their prido or their passions are en
kindled. It is said that the released pri
soner of Metz and Sedan are offering their
services to the new Government, but it is
not certain that full reliance can be placed
upon their fidelity ; and the course of
future events will depend largely
upon the readiness end zeal displayed by the
peop'e of the provinces and provincial towns
in support of their representatives. The im
mediate contest is not between Republicanism,
Bonaparttem, and Bourbonism, but between
Paris and all other portions of France, and if
this issue is decided in favor of the nation, as
a whole, a great point will be gvnedfor
THE GEOLOGICAL SURVEY.
The Governor in his last annual message
urged in a very forcible manner the import
ance and necessity of a thorough geological
survey of the State, and the Committee on
Ways and Means of the House of Represen
tatives some time ago reported a bill to au
thorize such a survey. The Legislature,
however, has been too busy with commission
bills and other matters of a similar character
to give this subject the attention it deserves.
It is understood that one reason why the
Legislature hesitates to authorize the survey
is because it will cost a considerable sum of
money. A strange objection, truly, when we
consider the thousand and one schemes
to put money in .the pockets
of a few individuals which are
hotly advocated at every session; but then
the ideas of Pennsylvania legislators are
peculiar, and as there is no mpney to be
made directly out of a geological survey, its
importance is not apparent to the average
legislative mind. A geological survey will
not enable a few grasping men to grow rich
at the expense of the majority of their fellow
citizens, but it will determine the immense
mineral wealth of the State, and aid in its de
velopment in a manner that would other
wise be impossible. Every itizen of
the State is interested in having
such a survey made at as early a
day as possible, and all the money that is
likely to be expended upon it, if it is entrusted
to proper bands, will be returned a thousand
fold. This is one of the very few really
ueeful projects now before the Legislature,
and we are sorry to say that for this very
reason it is not likely to receive the conside
ration it deserves. There are enough intelli
gent and honest men in the Legislature, h w
ever, to appreciate the importance of a
geological survey, and they should urge it as
strongly as possible, and endeavor to have a
bill passed authorizing it before adjournment.
