The International Exhi bition. Openingof the Permanent Exhibition at Philadelphia—President Haye» and President Orant among the Distinguished Ouests —u .Interesting .dresses, etc. tx Ceremon i es— A d Philadelphia. May 10.—The city hae put on a holiday attire to-day and the streets were crowded with people visiting the opening ceremonies at the Permanent Exhibition. The various liues of steam and street cars going to the Exhibition grounds were filled with people. The prominent buildings aDd many of the privale dwellings in town are convered wilh bunting. The horse cars and many vehicles are simi larly decorated. President Hayes,who slopped last night at 'the Continental Hotel with the members of his cabinet arose quite early, and promenaded Chestnut street for a short time. At 10 o'clock, with his cabinet and Geo. H. Boker, United States minister to Rus sia he breakfasted with Col. Clayton McMichael managing editor of the North American. Shortly after one o'clock the* President and party took carriages from the Continental Hotel and were driven to the exhibition grounds. The party was escorted by the First City Troop, which has pei formed the same service for every President who has visited Philadelphia from the time of Washington down. A great number of distinguished gentlemen were present beside Presi. dent Hayes and his Cabinet and ex President Grant. Among these were Hon. Eli Saulsbury, Gov. John P. Cochran and I. C. Grubb Esq., Secre tary of State. The ceremonies of the day began according to the programme, with a musical prelude, Gen. Grant and his escort, Gov. Hartranft. and other dis tinguished persons being also on the stand. The people had been gathering in large numbers in aud around the exhibition since 11 o'clock, and at this hour all available space within sight of the platform was packed with hu man beings. It was impossible for but few people to hear and see what was taking place. It is estimated that there were fully 50,000 people in the im mense structure. The weather was rather raw and cold, indicating a storm, and was in str'kinp contrast to that of one year ago, when it w.wi bright and warm. THE OPENING CEREMONIES The ceremonies were opened with music, consisting of Hall Columbia, My Country 'tis of Thee, the Marseil laise, Watch on the Khine, Austrian and Prussian hymns; Rule Brittania Auld LangSyne, Yankee Doodle and the btar Spangled Banner. During the performance of the music the Gover nor of Pennsylvania and staff and oth er distinguished guests entered and took position on the platform. As President Hayes appeared Hail to the Chief was performed on the organ. After the ''Festival Overture," pray offered by Right Rey. Bisop Si vens. er tc was ADDRESS OF CLEMENT M. B1DDDE. Mr. Clement M. Biddle, president of the International Exhibition Com^ pany, delivered the opening address in which he said the directors were not unmindful of the fact that* they must of necessity swffei by comparison with the centennial exhibition, the grandest event of the kind the world has ever seen. But their object now is to es tablish a permanent exhibition of the noblest products of human skill,and to further the impulses given by the cen tennial. CONCLUDING CBH.MONIBS. On the conclusion of Mr. Goshorn's address the Centennial Hymn, by John G. Whittier, written for the open ing of the centennial exhibition, was rendered by chorus, orchestra and organ. Benediction was then pro nounced by Bishop Simpson, and the ceremonies ended with the perfor nce of Mendelssohn's Wedding March, The presidential party were then taken iu charge by the committee and escorted through the immense build The President afterwards pro Edward T. ing. ceeded to the residence of Steele, at Germantown, where a re ception was given him this evening. FEATURES OF THE EXHIBITION. The exhibits displayed include many of those which commanded such uni versal admiration at Hie late centen nial exhibition, including the old log cabin Mew England kitchen, the mam moth" Kansas liberty hell,*c. A novel feature of the exhibition is a large aquarium, covering 15,000 square feet, and containing both salt and fresh water specimens. The educational section is also very complete, including model school houses, school furniture, and collections of natural history. Musical performances will constitute a permanent attraction, special facili ties being offered to muBical societies, associations and schools for public conj certs and rehersals. A department of public comfort has also been establish ed in the building for the convenience of visitors. The officers of the exhi bition state that the attendance to-day reached over 100,000 persons, over 75,000 being iu tbe building during the opening ceremonies. ILLNESS OF GEN. GRANT. Ex.l'ressident Grant, on leaving the exhibition to-day was driven to the Union League House, as the guest ot that body. On the way he was taken sick, and was compelled to stop and take a dose of quinine. Keaching the league he was taken with a chill and lay in blankets for nearly three-quar ters of an hour. U pon recovering he was taken to a carriage and driven to Mr. Paul's residence. His condition would not warrant hia^atteading the reception to tha President, as it was his purpose to do, in the evening.
