pose of Inspecting thu exhibition build

plete this arrangement, nml it is to ex

(and have a nice time generally) that this
excursion will take place.
The Indictment of Geu. Babcock lias
caused great commotion here, where lie
Is well known. People diller widely in
their opinions as to his guilt or innocence,
but upon one point all arc agreed, nml
that Is, that It was unwise la the Pre.-i-dent
to remove Mr. Henderson, as prose
cuting counsel in tho whisky frauds case,
Just at this critical Juncture. Even the
Evening Slur here, a strictly administra
tion paper, expresses Its legict at the
course taken by tho President, nud his
wannest friends and tupportcrs consider
Hender.-ou's dismissal a serious blunder.
It Is true that his successor (Col. James
O. Broadhcad), Is an able attorney, but
lit hasn't all the points In the euoimous
mass of evidence at his finger' 4 end, as
Mr. Henderson had ; and it is more than
doubtful if bo will be us successful In con
victing guilty parties.

through the marriage of her sister, with
the famous il'Kslcrhazy family of Aus

man of noble birth and n great favorite

took place at the residence of Mr. Henry
