A Buried Roman City.
Excavations at Wroxeter, in Shropshire..
England, have resulted in tbo discover'' of
tho old Koman city of Uriconinin. The
first object exposed was an extensivn public
building, ut the corner of two of tbo princi -
pal streets. It was first discovered bv need-
dent, und as soon as tbo tenants of tho spot
became awaro of I heir prize, they restored
thu earth, mid sowed a crop of turnips over
it. A inoiiih's silent negotiation placed
them in possession of ns much extent of
area as they could obtain, nnd they then
resumed tho work of excavation. Tho
court of a largo public building has been
exposed. It is forty feet square, und paved
w iih brick, herring-hoiio fashion. Various
eiilrtinees to tho building, through doors:
and down stone stairs, havo boon uneuvored,
und side rooms mound tho court, some, nl
which iipiuMiriis if thov bad been used for
storago. Traces of charcoal, nnd also of
mineral coal uro found, nnd quantities of
bnilOB nl llliimals nml iveb.bla ni.i.l.. nl'n,ll
und stono. marked with lloinau numerals.
Excavations in unnther direction revealed
another court, on a lower level, paved with
largo flagstones, und forly fivo feet across

inches in size, uia.lo thu floor of unother,

supposed to be tbo eastern extremity of tho

The Free Agricultural Fair.
Mn Emtok : Having a day of leisure, I im
proved tho opportunity of attending the Free
Agricultural Fair, nt Claridon, on Friday. Sept.
-Md, iSiO; and, with your permission, will give)
you a tilhc of what I saw and thought.
1 arrived about 9 o'clock, at the Fair Grounds,
which are located at the center uf ClariJun, and
cne'iosed with a substantial board fence. The
"King," in which all exhibitions of Slock ara
made, is enclosed by posts and a single rail, pro
tecting it from all improper intrusion, and per
mitting an unobstructed view to ull. On the east
uf the King, had been erected scats, in the form
of an amphitheatre, sufficient to accommodate fif
teen hundred or two thousand people, to which a
free invi'.aiion wus given.
Tilt first peculiarity noticeable, was the absence
of rirluiiveiuss. Everything spoke of a 'Free
Fair," the voice of money-changers not being
heard at any gate of entrance. A County Fair
should be the farmer's annual re-union his fes
tivalthe occasion on which all agriculturists
should assemble, with their families, bringing with
ihem ihe fruiis of their toil and skill, to compare
notes, speak of hojies and successes, fears and fail
ure. u rca-Bin together of new theories, new
plans, new inventions to form and perpetuate
friends-hips. Fairs should bo so conducted as to
become great practical lessons to the youth of the
land, teaching ihem lhat the occupation of their
lathers it honorable, and worthy to be pursued by
them. If this be the object and mission of Fairs,
w by should ihey not be free I '
Those who inaugurates the Claridon Fair could
see no good reason w hy such institutions should
not be free; and hence they proceeded, procured
ground, erected a Hall, and sent out their invita
tion to all, to come to the entertainment thus pro
vided enjoy ils pleasures, reap its rewards.
After my arrival, I first visited the lower room
in ihe Hall, and there found beautiful specimens
of every variety of vegetable production, well or
ranged and classified, as well as all kinds of agri
cultural implements thus far introduced to public
notice. This ilejiarl merit of lho Fair was partic
ularly well filled and attractive. I then passed
into llie Hall above, w here, lo complete the sum of
lis uiiraciious, almost every department of nature,
as well us art, hud been laid under heavy contribu
tion. Here I found specimens of almost every
vaiiety of fruits and flowers curious specimens of
the handicraft of tbo "Mothers of the Revolution,""
as well ns of ihe taste and skill ol the "Daughter
of Young America." Among others, I noticed a
counterpane, curiously womeu ana emuroiaerea uy
the great grnu'lmothcrof the wire of the Hon. M.
C. Canficl.l, of Chardon, and by Mrs. Cnnfteld pre
sented for'exhibition. In this Hall, many speci
mens of natural curioeiiics were lo be seen
The Hall itself was beautifully decorated with
evergreens. On the walls, were several eppropri
nio mottoes, formed in large letters out of ever
greens, by the ladies of Claridon,
Omsideof the Hall, and north of lbs "Ring,"
tho managers had erected a platform, on which
were sealed several old ladies, engaged in the va.
rious industrial agencies familiar to all house
w ives, half a century ogo, but which ore now so
well nigh forgotten.
Among the ladies thus employed, 1 noticed Mrs:
Tolly Humphrey Winters, a venerable matron now
S'j yeais of age, busily engaged in spinning flax,
much more skillfully, I think, than many a ladyof
only iwemy summers. Mra. Winters was born
in New Hartlord, Conn., in 1774, and wa married
about linO.toMr A. Humphrey. On ihe 1 1 th Jay
of October, 1811, with her husband and small
children, alio left New Hartford, her home, and
started to find another hjnieon the Western Re
serve, which she did November 15th, 1811, in Clar
doii Thirty-three days for a journey full of dan
gers nud triuls, now made la cushioned coaches,
drawn by si en in over iron tracks, in u snanf
hours! Mrs. Winters was the Grat white woman
who crossed Ihe Cuyahoga River. She moved
upon a farm purchased by her husband, eoon after
her arrival, end bus ever since lived on the tamo
farm. In 1612, Gun. Hull surrendered hta army to
the British, on the receipt of news of which Mr.
Humphrey, her husband, volunteered into Ihe ser
vice of the country, and with him every white man
in tho township of Claridon, and marched (
Cleveland, thus leaving his wife and rive small
children in a township of live miles square, die
whole of which was a wildcrnesa, without a whiu
man in it 1 During this absence ol laeui. Hum.
