Hit Council vie kity of Alts have comets

industry, mt, an itold an international KxI
hilrition e'Vcr u.\ similar to that which was so
success fill In 18 61 their present view is that the next
great exhibition shall lie held in iMtil. With regard to
the munngi ineiit to which the proposed exhibition should
lie entrusted, and the means of raising the necessary
funds, nothing dclinite has yet Ih-cii decided. The first
step taken hy the council will lie to ascertain how far the
commissioners of the exhiiiitiou of lgfil arc willing or
able to carry on such an undertaking ; or. if not, how
far they will assist or suppoit it There appears little
reason for doubt on this he,id. Already it is rumored
that the commissioners are ready to Ilea l (he guarantee
fund of the contemplated exhibition to the extent of
?50,000 'J lie council, having communicated their views
to the r.uiunissiotiers, will proceed to inquire how far
those views are supported by the public at large, ami
more especially hy those jiortioiis of the public who are
practically interested in ait, manufactures, a ,d commerce.
The whole plan at present is merely In an intimate
state, and the task of maturing and developing it
will for sonic lime to come occupy, to the fullest extent,
the administrative energies of the council. U(>ou two

exhibited should mark progress, and ha exhibited in
i liumes and not in nations, us in 1851. These are both
valuable suggestions.

Col. Tompkins, deputy quartermaster general, who for

The Sixth Infantry has won new laurels by its westward
luarcli. The Sacramento Union of the 20th ult.
xtates that the arrival and passage through the stieets of
that city of an entire United States regiment of infantry
(the sixth) luid created no little excitement, and much
delighted the citizens, who received the gallant troops
warmly, and even enthusiastically. It was, indeed, the
first time that so large a force of the regular army had
up pes red In that pint of California, and with the accoinpaiiimeut
of a long line of mules, baggage wagons, hospital
train, sutlers and other eaiup followers, the proeesniou
was at once a martial and a splendid show The
sixth, too, is the very first regiment that has crossed the
plains to California, having left fort Leaven worth oil the
27tlx of May. They had he-en one hundred uud ninety
lays on the march, not counting those of departure and
arrival. Or, taking the number of marchiug days, us the
regiment remained in camp on Sundays, llio duration of
their journey, all performed on foot, will have been
162 days. Tlicy have nveraged about one hundred
miles per week, in this long march the rogiment has
not suffered the loss of a man, nor been afflicted with
sickness beyond tlm usual portion of an urmy in the
field. A portion of the route traversed lay through a
country studiously represented in Washington as inhospitable
and even hostile, uud it lets been travelled ut a
season deemed unfavorable, if not, for a small part of the
distance, inclement Yet, not only are the men and animals
in a good condition for the termination of so long
sud bard a journey, but there has been no death of stuck
worth mentioning. Out of uiumt eleven hundred mules
the loss lias been only about thirty.
