The latest private telegrams from
Washington to the Centennial Conuiis
sioners here give every assurance that
there is no longer any doubt of the action
of our present Congress in their behalf
The telegrams are, of course, of a strictly
personal character, but they express con
fident belief that Congress intends to
endorse the movement of the President
in regard to the proposed Centenniul.
Your correspondent is enabled to stale
that Presiden*. Grant has prepared .a spe
cial message, which in a few days will be
officially submitted, containing & brief
analysis of the movement thus far, the
national benefit to result from its fulfil
ment, and nn earnest plea m&::gtC(&?
grcss to recognize it in its proper light.
1'Kill'A KATION FOR TUR GREAT BUILDING
Just now, more than at any other time
in tho past, the movement is placed in a
position to rapidly deve'.op. Recognizing
the need of immediate action, that the
buil iing may not be unfinished nt the.
day of its opening, the board of Finance
have issued printed notices (which will at
onco find a place in the advertising col
umns of leading journals), calling the
attention of contractors, joiners, lumber
men and builders, and desiring them to
submit contracts for the erection of the
main structure, which.as heretofore stated
will cover tbe immense area of thirty
acres of ground. The card sgeeifies that
these contracts must be handed in bciore
An earnest effort will be made to ren
der the Eahtcrli Department of the ex
position, which in the Vcnna project was
so interesting, but yet so hicomplete,vcry
comprehensive and very full. In the
Austrian affuir ('hum took no official
stand whatever. All Chinese productions
upon exhibition thero were brought over
by a few appreciative and, if it is rumored
correctly, speculative Englishmen. The
rich islands of the Pacific, China, Japan
and indeed all the little provinces and
territories under tho dominion of the
Dutch, will bo thoroughly rnnsackcd,and
all their quaint and curious industries
will find a place in the beautiful Ameri
can. Such a complete and perfect exhibit
of the wealth and richness of the Indies
will do much toward drifting their com
merce in the direction of America, San
Francisco being fully as near and under
condition of moro ready access than al
most any foreign port. It is believed
that a natural predisposition upon the
part of Eastern governments will favora
bly incline them toward tnis project, and
an effort will be made in this direction at
once. It is confidently asserted that by
securing a steady stream of commerce
from the East we could pay every dollar
that wc now owe to the West, while it is
also believed that the American Centen
nial Exposition is one of the best measures
by which this healthy commerce could be
brought about The plans for *
THE EXPOSITION BUILDING
are now com pitted, and, along with in
terior and perspective views, were sub
mitted last week to the official represen
tatives in Washington. They are at prcs
cut boing photographed, and will, of
course, soon become familiarly recognized
,iu every section of the country. There is
one element which ?nters into these plans
and renders them of infinite superiority
to those with which the world has become
acquainted hitherto. It is this?Tho
desigps, nside from being peculiarly orig
in al.japd,.grand, and apart froni'tbeir al
'jnoat 'extraordinary lightness, grace and
6tre,ug^n,n.avo been worked up with the
view of subsequently utilizing all tlio
pieces of cast and wrought iron which
compose them, so that there is scarcely a
foot of iron in the immense etrubturo
which, when the exposition is over, could,
not bo used for some other purpose. For
example, the sections of the roof, com
posed of light iron, will all be found so
constructed as to be made use of for the
roofs of railway depots or for the cover
ing ot'sheds, fco it is with the colums,
spans, and arches. One rolling mill has
already mado a bid for the building,
agreeing to take back the iron which will
compose it at one bull' its cost after the
exposition is over. All remember bow
earnestly the Belgian government desired
to purchase tho Paris Exposition building
nud yet, because the the sections of tho
roof were rivcfed nnd too ponderous to
be utilized, she could not do it, so that'a
structure costing millions was forced to
be sold as waste irion, by the pound, for
a few paltry thousands. Our architects
havo takcu cognizance of all these facts,
and have developod the ideas set forth
, Next week on Thursday the city of
Baltimore will decide what action she

Church Sup er vision of. Efafcbath
. We observe, that iu all .churches there
is au increase of direct ecclesiastical over
sight ot the Sabbatli-sciiools.' For a long
time the Sabbath-sclibor was -rrithcut
church recognition, and for* nnstilJ longer
time without supervision. . Its manage
ment was left to those who might have
an interest in the work, it being assumed
that they would bo faithful and judicious
It was also assumed that in the Sabbath
schools there should be nothing denom
inational, that only the great principles
of our religion, held, in common by all
evangelical churches, should be taught
the children. Latterly, however, we find
that those who demand the broadest lib
erality arc becoming intensely active and,
earnest in providing for the , denomina
tional oversight of the, schools and train
ing of tho ehildrqiu, Pqards,- committees
or departments, are organised, papers
and books are prepared for teachers aud
pupils, and great care is*' t?ken that the
schools ho made to subScrVe1 the interests
of the denomination. <?;
We approve of this.- We do sot con
sider ourselves scctaraiu in . a narrow
sense of the word; but our cofiviptions are
strong, that so long ns any church con
siders that it has a right to exist as a
separate body, so long is4t under tho
highest obligation ;tr? instruct and train
its chihlien' in1 its -own . principles. Our
scjiool as one dopartmeut of church work/
and place it under the control of tho scs
Tho Sabbath school is the training
school for a large part of tho next genera
tion of church members. It is, therefore
of vital importance that right views of
the work of redemption he inculcated,
that right conceptions of,Christian life be
formed. Instruction should have a posi
tive and present the great doctrines of
the Bible in their purity and full force.
Much Sabbath-school teaching has
been merely sentimental, or, ot best, too
much restricted to general statements of
the gqspel. The Citechism is regarded
too doctrinal and difficult, and is permit
ted to fall into disuse. A wrong is thus
done to the children; a great wrong. Their
capacity is unducrestimated, aud they
are kept on the instruction suited to
babes. At tho time they arc craving for
more truth, when their minds are melting
with and trying to understand the great
questions concerning man and God, time
and eternity, they are given only the
repetition of.wh.Dt they have heard from
infancy. Unsatisfied, they listen to the
answer given by those who do not receive
the Scriptures. We arc amazed, as wo
are pained, when our young people be
gin to drift away from the church, aud
to deyclop uncvangclicnl or infidel tend
encies; but if we will look at the charac
ter of much of the teaching given we need
not be so much surprised. When there
is an abandonment of the Church of,
their fathers it is commented upon ns
unaccountable, or is explained by the
unpopularity of our principles. Tho true
explanation is, our principles have been
ignored, and for years we have been fur
nishing them with what tends directly to
draw them away from the Church of
Ancient Devotion.?It was the cus
tom among the young men of Athens,
who listened to the teaching of Socrates,
to bring some gifts in gratitude for his
instruction. Gold and silver, and jewels

presented, a youth too poor to bring an
offering cast himself at tho feet of his
teacher, whilo a Mush ovcispreud his
