The engrossing topic of conversation here at this time is the Fair, which, commencing 111 Tuesday next, the l'Jth inst., w ill con tinue throughout the week, and whiih already gives hopeful promise of prov ing a complete success. Much credit is due Maj. J. F.

To their untiring efforts, oftentimes exerted at the sacrifice of their personal interests, we are in debted for the sucivss which has been thus far achieved. A brief extension of the time for the holding of the Fair would Is? desirable, for the buildings are not all in a completed slate, but it wu thought better to hold the Fair, even though everything niitfht not lie exactly in "apple-pie order," rather than disappoint expectations by a K)stnonement. The plan of the grounds is the very finest in the Stat, and the arrangement of the buildings the most sus'rior. The main structure consbhl of a large octagonal hall three stories in hight, from opposite sides of which lour spacious w ings branch off. These wings constitute the apartments in which articles for exhibition will he displayed. By means of the central hall aaaaaanjnieatiaa between these aiKirtmeuts is made easy. lssinlcs this main building, two very taslrflll ehttagea have been erected one to le u-ssl as the President's olli ", the other designed for Iheaccommod'iliuu of the ladies.

Miss Middy Morgan, of the New York tVaSaa, has entered a field of that domain more especially appertaining to man than any other that of the cattle market and agriculture. Three times a week she visits the pens ol newly arrived pigs, sheep and beeves in the suburbs, and discourses learn edly their condition and current value. When a sale of horses take- pl.no she Ls on the spot with a critical eye, and her lucubrations upon crops are quite as luminous as those of her male con temporaries. Horses and other do mestic animals have been a passion with Miss Morgan from early child hood. As Rosa Bon hour reproduces them to life on canvas, so does she stamp their attributes with her pen. Her father was an Irish country gen tleman, and an enthusiastic fox-hunter. His daughter shared, with pas sion, his predilection, and quailed at no obstacle that her horse was willing to leap. No hedge, ditch or gate that her fellow-hunters cleared was refused by her, and notwithstanding several falls and three dislocations of bones, her ardor remained unchecked. At her father's death she wound up his estate, and sojourned in Italy after a course of European travel. She be came intimate in Roiue with Char lotte Cuahman, and frequently rode V ith that lady's horses upon the torso. Her dashing equestrianism attracted the attention of Prince Poniatowaki, a literary and musical amateur, who obtained an introduction to her. Struck by iter criticism on horses, and her keen appreciation of their points he mentioned her aame to King Victor EmanueJwho desired to gain her acquaintance. She wasj there lore, introduced by the British Am bassador. The King displayed his regard by commissioning ner to buy his horses for a long time. She subse quently came to the United States, and Mr. Marsh, the American Minis ter, gave her a letter to Mr. Bigelow, chief editor of the Tis, That gen tleman shoved his freedom from any foolish conventional prejudice by ap pointing her upon his stall, ECUMENICAL COUNCIL.
