They have been admirably fitted up in the

but to far no rain, and but little dust.
Testerday was devoted mainly to entries
and arrangement of articles, and up to
noon to-day tb same work hat been going
on. Everything i now in readiness for
sight-seeing, and the people are pouring in
by rail and every tort of conveyance, to
enjoy the instructive holiday season. The
receipts for entries and entrance fee so far
exceed any previous State Fair.
We are specially glad to see that North'

every Department. Messrs. Youn glove,
Massey & Co., make a splendid show of
labor saver from their famous Agricultu
ral Implement Work in Cleveland; and
the number, a variety and superior work'
manship of the implements of husbandry
from similar manufactories in Ohio, evince
the untold value of machinery, in ad
vancing the development and growth of
our great commonwealth. Though over
three hundred thousand of her patriotic

no industrial pursuit languishes.
Mr. John Kelley represents the garden-

thirteen varieties of grapes, twenty-nine of
vegetables and thirty varieties of dahlias.

small lots, containing from ten to fifteen
acres each, and leasing them out for
nimber of years to the most reliable and
industrious of his former negroes, at such
rate as they will agree to and can well
afford to pay. In some instances he will
give the right of purchase at the expira

settled he will erect a common gin and
open a country dry goods and grocery

Many of them weie bent upon self expa

faith of the brave soldier who had pledged
his word to him, and loving his country to

ideas, and urged them to accept cordially

of an officer who spent three montht or
more investigating the condition of the
race along tbe Red Biver with the view to
determine Ui. tahirrrw -tfcar ,
support himself in a state of freedom.
Gen. Strong went down among these
people with prejudices rather unfavora
ble to them than otherwise, superinduced, '
perhaps, by the reports constantly flowing -to
the Bureau from interested parties of
the South relative to the utter worthless
nes of the negro, and his total unfitness
tor any other state than that of servitude.
He visited many of the settlements and
plantation!, "incog," and in no single in
stance failed to discover evidence of ad
vancement beyond his most sanguine
hopes. They are industrious, and their
highest aim is to get possession of a small
patch of land to work for themselves. In
cases where ttey have accomplished this,
they have amazed their old masters. The
white cotton growers buy the heavy crops
they have got under way. Of course there
are individuals in eacn community m
whom idleness and vice can not be over
come by the influence of freedom, yet these
drones are fewer in number than mean
whites. Schools are plenty and flourish
ing among them.
Gen. Strong says that the esse and ra
pidity with which old and young freedmen
go through the elementary text book is as
tonishing. The Tribunes Washington special says
the letter of Gen. Howard, Commissioner
of the Freedmen's Bureau, to Assistant CcL
Brown, of Bichmond, relative to the fear
of negro insurrection entertained by the
citizen of Virginia, did not contemplate the
employment of rebels for the purpose of
petroling tne country where an outbreak
was apprehended, while General Hunter
believes such apprehensions groundless.
He thought it best in order to quiet the
fears of the timid to suggest to Colonel
Brown the propriety of petroling certain
regions of the country with a small force
detailed by the diilerent military com
manders, and, in case he (Colonel Brown)
did not have a sufficient number of officers,
to select, through cartful enquiry, a citi
zen who is willing to aid in preserving
order, if such is to be found, acd one who
will do to witnuut compensation. He also -
