We found on . making our "grand

were almost 'wholly engrossed with 'the at
tractions of the race course. Speaking of tte
awarding judges reminds us that
THE FIRST PREMIUM ON BUGGES
Was, awarded to Messrs. Peters, Benns &
Co., of 115 Eist Town street; next to the
market Douse. The judges, in passing on
the fine display of Messrs. Pv B. ;& Co

ness was finished, and finding each unsur
passed, inade - the award accordingly.

Were again, the subject of universal con
versation, and at the hoar for the appear
ance of the horses oil the track, thousands
of interested spectaiors were huddled to
gether on the overlooking grounds, anx
iously awaltinsf1 the signal to go.- The
double-team trot previously announced for
the hour of ten la the morning, was drawn,
but other arrangements were made, and at
half past eleven, the following entries were
announced: W." Failing, "of this"city, pair
of bay horses; James-XaughtOn. of IhiB
city, pair of bay horses; F. Phelps, ol Blen

Naughton's feam.onjhelqside, Phelps'

cdmlng'Uowh to the home stretch on the

of an ugly break by Naughton's bays,
.drew npi'passed them and led the race al
most home, when, by an exchange, of mis
hap the .order was reversed, Naughton's
team winning the beat, closely followed by
Phelps. Time 3:22. w !
Before starting on the second heat it was
announced that one of Mr. Phelps' mares
was qaite lame from some unknown cause,,
and consequently could not be expected to
get down te-reliable work .Thej second,
heat was, an exciting one between the bays,
the' brown mares drawing off shortly after
starting by reason of lameness.1 The Fail
ing team tried hard for the victory but fall-,
led to win, tbeKaughton bays coming In,
and winning the beat and race 13:21,

Almost immediately after the start, "Ben-
wood" drew ahead, took the inside of the
track and passed the stand a length ahead
On the second heat, "Benwood" started
away with the determination to win, and
notwithstanding the hard pressure given
by the contesting horses, kept his lead gal
lantly and came home winner of the heaf
and race In 1:55. '' : " ' 1 t4 '
Immediately after the close of the race
the announcement -' was made- from the
Judges' stand that the Fair was at an end.

After all the blowing and striking done by.
the Radical leaders during the past week,
we had thought they would give the pub-f
lie a show worth all the money that was
spent. Luther Donaldson and the other!
members of their Finance committee have
laid - every Radical official . and store
keeper r under, contribution,1 and a"
large lund j was thus raised to be
expended in preparing!' wagons, trans
parencies, fireworks and the like." The re
sult ot the expenditure will hardly make
them feel that the Investment has been a
paying one. ' ' ; ' ;;, v' rT
There were In procession, perhaps, one
thousand men and eight hundred to one
thousand boys.' '
And the Grant Tanners.
And they all -had torches..
And the cavalrya 129 strong.
And they all bad horses, which were
frightened at the lamps and strung along
the streets In a" 'man ner that seenied 'like"
anything but cavalry. ;., . .
The .display of fire works at the, State,
House was really, beautiful. "Froin the
windows of the dome of the Capitol, Ro
man candles were .fired, and many colored
lights gave brilliancy to the scene. ' ti
There were but levy stores and private;
houses illuminated. The Republicans,
hereabouts, somehow lack heart seemingly,
aud show no enthusiasm In their displays.
Except for the 'shouts of the - boys in the
procession, the march .would have, been,
more like a dead march than a political
procession. ., .:..!;'': ':';;' ' ..: :
.-One of the chief features in the proces
sion was an ; illuminated monument, on
which were Inscribed ; the names 1 pf
various Generals who' had fallen In de
fense of the Union. There, carried in a
Republican procession, was the-, name of
' Kearney." We wonder the ' ghost' of
"Iron FLU". did not appear to revenge the
insult. Did not certain of our Radical cit
izens f quirm as the monument there in pro
cession, .brought to their recollection the
operations in regard, to a, certain other
monument? ' ' i -
Taken altogether, the show was credita
ble to the Rid of this county,: though not
what was expected. The wagons, with
the solitary exception above named, were
botched In the getting up, and gave no idea
as to what was meant. It pleased every
bodythe Rads, because It was the best
display they ever made, and the Democra
cy, because it will not require a great ef
fort to distance it.
Galoot Becord. We are' not certain
but we should have written it "Galootess," '
seeing as none but "ladies" attended the
Mayor's levee yesterday morning.
Lou. Friend was .there. The gentle
Louise had Imbibed until she was as limp
as a paper collar just home from the wash.
She had been on a Grecian bender, and Its
effects were to make heir'most belligerent.
As she passed along the streets her fingers
clutched convulsively, they so hankered to
grab some gal's chignon. She did nt get
such an opportunity as she desired, but the
mighty spirit of old Ben. Zine : stirred her
up to acts disorderly. She paid $5 for her
fun and departed. , ... . ., .-.
Lo, who have we here? . Know we that :
