The Fruit Grower^ *"?!*
A FINE DI8TLAY? THE ATT^0iNCK TO-day.
At neon to-day the annual fair of the
Potomac Fruit Orders' Association was formally
open?2. At the opening Hour all the arrangements
had not yet been fully perfected
tor ibe exhibition, but, notwithstanding, the
hall of the Masonic Temple, where the fair is
in progress, was very tastefully arranged, and
the display of fruits and flowers, the works of
art. and the wonders of science, combined to
make an exhibition calculated to please the eye,
elevate ihe mind, and tempt the appetite. The
tables upon which the fruit and flowers were
displayed were conveniently arranged to prevent
a crowding of the room. Three large j
tables, extending the entire length of the
hall, were utilized for the fruit and floral
display. Then running along the two sides
a table has been made, reaching the
length of the hall, upon which was placed
a miscellaneous collection of scientific wonders,
ladles' handiwork, and attractive odds
and ends. The stage of the hall Is tastefully
ornamented with flags, and has upon It several
rare specimens of the sculptors' art. The exhibition
is divided into several leading features,
embracing departments of science, the arts,
preserves, jellies, pickles and canned fruits,
tine arts, fruits, flowers and ornamental plants,
Ac , grape culture, etc., etc. The walls of the
hall are most tastefully adorned with paintings
In oil, and water colors, photographic spe< i [
mens, crayon work, and etchings in oil, pencil
and crayon. Among the more notlcabie oil
paintings are several by Mrs. Imo?lne Robinson
Morrell. embracing a large-sized representation
of "Washington Welcoming the Provision
Train" and ' Miles Stacdlsh on the First
Battle of the Pilgrims." Dr. Ilowland. of this
city, has contributed to the exhibition some
curious wonders of the microscope. The floral
display, embraces a collection of rare and
beautiful flowers and plants, the principal exhibitor
in this line being Mr. John Saul, of
this city. The fruit depaitment has quite
a host of exhibitors: Dr. Van Bogan, of Fairfax
county, va? contributed ninety varieties of
apples, and ten each of pears and peaches. |
Chaikey GUUngham, the president of the association,
contributed over fifty varieties of apples.
some of the specimens being remarkably
choice and tempting. From Anacost la, across
the Eastern Branch, Mr. Richard smith sen<\s a
splendid lot of the celebrated " Duchess pears,
one Washington exhibitor has the nerve to
send a specimen of grapes, raised, as he says,
in my back yard." and if their looks do not
deceive, the specimen is equal to any of the
others. In addition to the departments heretofore
enumerated, there is also one embracing
cut flowers, grasses, terns and leaves; another
of mechanics and inventions,and still another or
rare relics. Each Is replete with handsome
specimens, the latter including an apron worn
by Martha Washington while making pastry; a
knife used to crimp her cap, and the chair upon
which, it Is stated, the Bible was placed at the
side of ceneral Washington's death bed; a
pitcher, which was the property of Eliza Park
Curtis; a chair brought to this country from
England, and a silk vest worn by Thomas E.
Law, who married General Washington's niece,
and was the first president of the Bank of
Washington in this city; hat and cockade wrorn
by Dr. Wm. Rellly In the war of 1S12, and other
relics of stmllar character; a Merrlmon lifesaving
dress; a silver bracelet, hammered out of
the solid ore, and richly carved by a hereditary
chief of the Kake Suttles of Sitka tribe of Indians
of Alaska; half a dozen silver spoons,
made 150,yeare ago from the shoe-buckles of Dr.
John March, of Maryland; spectacles worn by
Thomas Payne; a history of oulntlus Uurtlus.

Washington, Georgetown and Alexandria,
pilnted in 1s:j4, and the first landscape painting
from the brush of Benjamin West, described
In Gait's "Life of West," published In isir>.
The photographers, Brady,and Pullman, of this
city, have contributed largely to the art display.
The former exhibits the photographs of
all the leading public men in the country cotemporaneous
with the present time. At the
entrance door is a splendid picture in colors or
the handsome Madame Catacazy, the wife or
the ex-Rufslan minister, who resided here for
home years In a diplomatic capacity.
The exhibition will continue until the night
of the 2Gth Instant, and is well worth a visit.

Fevkk.?The information of the attack by yellow
fever, in Memphis, of Rev. Father Reveille,
formerly associate pa3tor of St. Dominic's >
Church here, will All many hearts In the District
with sorrow. Father R. was comparatively
a young man, only about 35 years of age,
and a resident of this country for nine or ten
years. He was a native of France, and was
educated in Paris and Rome. While in France
he devoted much of his time to the Investlga- <
tlon of natural sciences, and was associated
there with Faucault in making many
valuable experiments on the electric light.
On coming to this country, a little over nine
?ears ago, ne was for a short time stationed at
[emphis, Tenn., and then went as a missionary
to the Indians, where he spent some years.
Returning from this field he joined the Dominican
fathers, and was assigned to St. Dorn- '
inlc's church as assistant pastor, which position
he held until last spring, wnen he was sent to \
Memphis. While here he had many friends J
particularly among the foreign legations '
his attainments In the sciences opening doors ]
to him closed to the public at large. Father 1
Reveille will be remembered by the Washington 1
public generally in connection with his sermons
on "Hell," (in reply to col. Ingersoll), a *
series oCwhich was reported in full and!large
editions published ana circulated through the |

Sent to IIis Native Land.?Gottfried Eschbacher.
a native of Switzerland, arrived In this '
city on Saiurday last In a most deplorable con- ]
dltlon, having waiktd from Buffalo, his last '
place of residence, where n would appear ne J
was placed lu the asylum some two years ago
on account of evident aberration of mind, lie
left the. institution of his own accord and wandered
to Wasuing'.on, where he found his way
to the Swiss consulate. Having emigrated to
the United states some twelve years ago sound '
In mind and body, and, from what could be as- \
certalned, a naturalized citizen, the consulate '
presented the case to the police authorities, '
who. upon learning that it would costless to
send him to his native land, where he desired :
to go, than back to Buffalo, recommended to '
the Commissioners that a sum not exceeding ;
the amount it would cost to have him sent bac:c !
to the Buffalo asylum, where he belonged, be 1
contributed towards sending the uufortunate
man out of the country, provided the Swiss ;s->- \
elety in this city would contribute the bahuiee.
This the society, of which .Mr. Kaspar Kneessi 1
Is tieasurer, agreed to do, and so the very best 1
disposition of the case was made that could be '
under the circumstances. j

I Point to the mouth of the
at '^r un the depth of this channel
aL 20 t<*V about the foot of -21st st., at
the fo mer glass works. He denies that the
Virginia channel was the "highway" of the
rr.er. He thinks it his duty, "oa behalf of our
city," to correct my statements on these points. I
I cheerfully concede "M's" patriotism; I deny
his historical accuracy. As proof, I offer?
I. In 1794, Shafer. in his hlstorlco-topographlcal
notice of Washington city, speaks of the
flats in the Potomac.
II. In 1795, the Washington Commissioners
mention the "banks" (flats) in the Potomac as
Impairing the value of Washington harbor. The
above are both quoted In my No. 2.
III. In 1792, Eillcott, who succeeded L'Enfant
as surveyor, prepared an official map of the
city and Its entire water front. This was engraved
in Philadelphia, at public expense, and
published officially by the then commissioners.
The sale of lots in 1792 was according to this
map. It Is conclusive authority. This map
delineates the Hats, showing that, substantially,
tht lr boundaries were In 1792 where thru are today.
It is true there have been some changes
in the last eighty-seven years, but none that
affect the quest Ion between "M.''and me.
So much for the flats. Now, as to the channel
close along the Washington shore. The Eillcott
map dellneaies the Virginia channel in its
present bed and makes it quite as broad. The
numerous soundings given show its depth to
have ranged from "about 16 and is feet to 24 and
27. It, was of sufficient capacity to take off
nearly the whole volume of the river current.
There is but one other channel indicated: it is a
narrow and generally shallow swash channel,
running from just below Easbys Point, across
the flats southeast'wardly, and striking the
Washington shore opposite L, M and N streets,
from which point it hugs the shore with increased
depth, but In a narrow current. Its
maximum depth near Long Bridge is is feet
The point where it strikes the Washington
shore is a little above the well-known Mary
\\ ashlngton wharf.
From Easby's Point to the nth-street wharf
and thence to L street, along Washington shore,
no channel is designated. The water there Is
either hack water from the river or comes from
Tiber Creek. The soundings given for the narrow
strip between the shore and the fiats show
the depth to have been ag follows, opposite the
streets named: 20th, 2ist, 23d and 24th streets,
seven feet ("M." says it was 15 to 20 feet deep
along here); 1-th, lyth and 22d, eight: 17th, six;
at Long Bridge, eleven; at G street, nine, ana
at ll street, eleven feet. To sum up: EUicott's
official map proves that. In 1792, 1st. The flats
existed with about the same extent bs at present;
2d. The Virginia channel was In Its present
bed; 3d. There was no Potomac channel
along the Washington shore, except from about
L street, a little above the Mary Washington
wharf; and 4th. There was a narrow strip of
water between the shore and flats from Easby'.s
Point to L street, varying from 6 to 11 feet in
depth.
IV. February 10, is34. a report was made to
Congiess (see II. U. Kep. 2?4) in relation to
building Long Bridge. The transverse section
of the proposed work is given. This shows:
1st. Water 7 feet 9 inches deep under east end
of Long Bridge; 2d. A broad swash channel
beginning 1,265 feet from the Washington shore,
very shaliow, live feet at deepest part; :;d. A
Virginia channel, l,3so feet wide, 25 feet 9 inches
greatest depth; and 4tli. Solid flats occupying
2,245 feet of the total width of river, which is
6,1'CO feet. As this transverse section was made
by engineers upon actual survey and for a
working plan, it is authoritative. Will " M "
Insist that .John (putney Adams swam on this
2,245 feet of solid flats? "M" twits me with
not knowing many things he mentioned. As
none of them prove any thing, I don't care
whether I know them or not. Capt. Tharpe's
boat could run to-day to I7th-street whart;
boats have been for years bringing sand to 17thstreet
wharf and could get It to the glass works
at 2ist street, If these e existed; schooners, lumber
and others, of light draught, can load now
at Johnson's wharves at 13th to 14th streets;
the boys swim out above the bridge at high
tide, and not only Adams, but Jackson, who
was a taller man, could now have a good swirn,
at mean tide and even at low tide, at the same !
place. What prevents, pray, a boat of six feet
draft from sailing to-day from the east end of
Long Bridge at Glven's wharf to Alexandria?
I might retort on " M " by saying that, Instead
of exploding patriotically irrelevant statements,
he should have known enough to stick to authentic
surveys. We should, then, have had
less eloquence, but more reliable data for an
opinion.
Am I asking too much, Mr. Editor, when I solicit
the liberty of finishing what I have to say
on " our river front," before dissentients give
their views? Haven't I the floor; I will finish
In three numbers more of the regular series.
