THE COUNTY FAIR.
THIRD DAY. An Immense Throng of Visitors.
Decided Success of the Exhibition.
THE RACES. &c., &c., &c., &c.
While occupied In writing up onr report
of the second day's exhibition, on Wednes
day night, a furious blast of wind and rain
came dashing down from the north, threat
enlng to be steady in' its character, and
bearing on its frowning face only visions
of sad disappointment and vexation to the
rnany friends of the Fair. .Yesterday
morning dawned ' "cold,;. raw .'and cloudy,
with indications of more rain, and most
anxiously was the quarter of the wind con
suited and the scowling heavens viewed, as
the morning advanced and the hours for
visiting the exhibition' -'drew near
Never were human calculations, however.
wlderiof the mark than were those of yes-
terday which saw1 Only prophetic print
ings to "a dull Fair day," in the dark and
gloom and chill ot the early morning. As
early as nine o'clock, an unbroken line of
vehicles of almost every description, filled
with visitors, packed Broad street from
High to the North entrance of the grounds,
and Eastward on the same thorough fore.
far beyond the Alum Creek bridge, all des
tined to the Attractive precincts of (hoTair.
Before noon, one of the largest assemb
lages of visitors was present that was ever
seen inside the enclosure of a County Fair.
So dense was the accumulation of wheeled
vehicles in the vicinity of the entrance
th,t Hj8 found necessary to detail special
policemen-whose sole duty It was to take
ebarge of and assign positions to them
while iri revefy quarter-of the 'immense
grounds moving masses of men, women
and children looked at the articles on exhi
bition; admired the fine displays of stock,
congratulated each other on the perfect
success of " Our County Fair," and ex
pressed the utmost contempt of cold, raw'
winds and gloomy weather in general. The
day had been set apart for the visit, ar
rangements were perfected, and the ques
tion of an early and continued appearance
of old Solon the occasion was one of second
ary Importance altogether." The grand Fair
in all its departments felt the mighty rush ot
the multitude; and' in some cases' ,H was
found absolutely necessary .to place bar
riers In "Exhtbitlon jflall In. order, to, give
the judges" of displays' an opportunity to
examine and pass upon the articles. The
beauties of Floral Hall were lost to hundreds
yesterday by, reason of this necessary,
measure, but wc Jnciine to the opinion that
the entire list of disappointed ones in
dorse' the speech of a barred out lady of
spirit, who exclaimed, r'Never raind Katie,
wejuoill come aqain to-morrow and have a
look at the enchanted palace yet?" We are
confident that the lady,' with Katie.'J wil,!
be there to-day,-and can asure her that she
will yet have the much desired opportunity
of seeingone pf the most magnificent Floral
and Fine Art displays of thdage.n . moi ).'
.The scenes in the Farm' -product?,', Hal;
Domestic Manufacture, and Ladies Domes
tics, wereinteresting IriT the extreme.
Tbousands of cheerful, rosy-facerf ladies
fromtjie producing districts of the .county
promenaded the thoroughfares, and as they
examined the specimens, tils-played so lav
ishly, pf the' .various articles'- peculiar to
their own sphere Iq life, Indorsed by look
and speech the system established by the
Society, and gave. mutual promise of en
tering the lists as friendly 'competitors at
coming exhibitions. And- not alone, In
these special departments wns this same
feeling exhibted.'- On all sides were bvef-
heard congratulations from one party to
another, of the entire success of the Fair
Enthusiasm ruled the order of the ! day,
and the best of feeling was j manifested jon
