Thinking that a letter from Philadel phia in relation to the permanent Intel' national Exhibition would be more In* rerouting thfap Washington correspon dence, during this season of politieal flatness, I have been spending a few days amid the almost deserted palaces of the great exposition where silhnce and emp tiness, as contracted with the gay humor overflow of last fall, make the present loneliness doubly impressive. The Permanent Exhibition will be opened with due oeremony on the 10 th of next month. The programme and page antry of the opening exercise* ' will of course be less ostentatious than our too boastful salutation to the "crumbling monarchies" of Europe and Asia, and sappy Republics of South American the year of political disgrace with a frpudu lent President 1876. But,notwithstanding the absence of State and National appro priations,and tbe less sojid,but not unim portant,enthusiasm excited by a great his toric centennial aniversary, thp manage ment have faith in its permanent success and usefulness. The energy and bofdaeee of those who have undertaken this vast enterprise cannot be too much admired. The requisite funds have been subscri bed, and those who have the matter in charge will have profited by the palpable blunders of last year and all arrange ments will be more complete than they have been at any former exposition. The displays of foreign countries will neces sarily be lews prominent then they were last year; but France, Brazil, Japan, and England and her oolonies, will be credit ably represented. The pidn of arra'nge ment with reference to nationality will be abandoned, and the exhibit« will be grouped -in classes representing various arts and Industries. The advantages of this distribution wilt be at oncejlpparent, for the visitor will be able to compare anil study any special manufacture or art with much better advantage than when he was compelled to go from one inde pendent show to 'another in ordeY to make a co Space wi of charge, but they will be required to pay a tax of ten per cent on all sales for the purpose of defraying tbe.current ss or thé exposition inparigoiq 11 be allowed to all exhibitors free expenses oi tue exposition That it has been possible to fill the large exhibition building with Interes ting and valuable exhibits is remarkable, when we innsniln: itiat tms Oiniai... cove» an area of precisely twenty acres, or a space just 1 U 00 times as large as a hall ot 60 by 140 feet.

There will be among the new attrac tions two immense aquaria.one centaine salt water and the other fresh water,well stocked with fishes and marine animals. It is designed to make Memorial Hall an art museum after the order of the Kensington Museum in London, and, while it may be almost a century before it reaches the mature perfection of its great pattern, there is reason for con gratulation in the excellent beginning that has been made. Last year the attention or visitors was much occupied with the wonders in the centennial grounds that many of thpm omitted to see the most complete zoological garden on this side or the water, but I mention it now only mark that Philadelphia has built and stocked, it all ia the short period of four y *Amoug the improvements that will edify visitors will be street oars propelled by steair ; in spite of cavil, objeottons to their noiselessaess, and objections that they will reduce the price or horses, they may now be considered success, and steps have been taken to in. troduce them in other cities. 1 neglected to mention that there will be no charge for admission to Memorial Hall or to Horticultural Hall and that the beautiful flower lawns in front of the latter will be kept in perfect cultivation at the expense ot the city. To what use Machenery Hall will finally he dedicated is not at present known, further than that the Franklin Institute will use a section of its vast space for an annual exhibition W ma chinery. Other buildings such as the English Government houses, the Jap anese Villa, and the German Imperial pavilion which were presented by their several Governments to the State of Pennsylvania, Will remain among the frea attractions, and, if the Permanent International Exhibition can survive the calamity of its long name, it will doubt, less prove a success.

But they still fall short of the actual truth,which, sooner or lafter, must bo revealed ; and then the Country will know exactly HoW much money was paid down, who paid it, and in'what proportion it was distrib uted. , The negotiators of îhjs vile' bargàt» necessarily placed themselves in the power of the scdanrdrels whd did the work.

John Sherman sept for Anderson, and he wae taken to the com mittee room of finance of the Senate, in charge of one of the deputies of the Sergeant-at-arms, against T all the rules observed in regard to imprisoned wit nesses.
