A LOOK AHEAD.
Geographically considered, our coun
ty will include but a small fraction of
the broad domain included within the
limits, of our future State; yet its posi
tion, at once central and commanding,
warrants the prediction that it will
be the nucleus of wealth and trade
for the future common wealth. It
promises to stand in the *ame relation
to Washington in the future that the
county of New York docs to the Em
pire State to-day.
Our county contains as large an area
of arable land a« Khodc Island, which
State supports a population cf over
200,000. Our railroad advantages will
in every way compare favorably with
those of the little Yankee State. We
possess equal natural facilities for
manufacturing enterprises; havo as fine
harbor*, even greater advantages for
trade and commerce; our location is as
central and commanding in every way,
and wo are far richer in internal resour
ces than she. There are buried away in
our hills rich beds of mineral wraith —
inexhaustible bodies of coal and valu
able deposits of iron ore—a source of
wealth which Kb ode Inland has never
had to draw from.
These facta show that within the
borders of our county alone may in
a few years be built up a community
which shall rival in importance com
mercially the State ot Rhode Island.
Here may, if our citizens will it, be
established the future commercial mart
of a great State. We may secure as a
tributary territory the vast plateau
of th»j Columbia, as thin way lies the
natural outlet of that great fertile
region. Our internal resources are
equal in themselves to sustaining a vast
population. Thousands will find em
ployment in the development and
working of our coal and iron mines ; in
the reduction of f..i< *ts and in manu
facturing enterprises. Agriculture will
flourish here, especially as our farmers
will find at their very doors a market
for their products equal to the best on
the coast.
•Such great advuntunes, however, may
pass for little unless improved. The
present tide in our affairs will certainly
lead on to fortune if taken at the
flood ; brft the golden tlinad of oppor
tunity may not always hang within our
reach, us at present. If we would
realize our prospects of future pros
perity, which we eas.ly may, we should
resolutely maintain the stand we have
made in tho cause of material progress,
and send tho looomotivcs of the 8. it
W. W. R It. over the Pass to bring the
trade of the region east of the moun
tains to our doors.

'From our regular correspondent.!
PARIS, July 31*t, 1878.
ED. INTELLIGENCER In spite of
the tropical heat of the past week, the
number of visitors to the Exhibition
has not materially diminished; and y«t
it is intolerably hot in the galleries of
Cham]) d« Mars, AND >U<J <mu bums
down mercilessly on the prameneurt
out of doors. Still there ar« shady
nooks here and there. IT there is tho
least breeze stirring, it is to be felt on
the Trocadero terraces, where the flow
ers and grass are kept fresh by a sys
tem of incessant watering, and where
the fountains and cascades help to cool
the air.
Siuce it has been found impossible
to instal a military band in the Exhi
bition grounds, several of the restaurants
have set up music of their own. One
band plays at the British bar, and
another at the Spanish cafe. Several
small bullets tor the sale of cukes and
iced drink* are newly opened, and the
visitor?;" including ladies and children,
are now well supplied in this respect;
they may also buy Turkish sweetmeats,
Algerian fruit, Russian k uines, Eoglish
buns, Parisian gauffrieg, and Persian
scraps in various places.
The captive balloon in the Place du
Carrousel, is now visible from all parts
of Paris; its huge bulk towering over
the buildings of the Louvre and Tuil
ciics. The public is to be permitted to
make asconts next week, the price be
ing fixed at 20 fr. each person. In the
meantime the balloen has been up
twice, to a height of 1,300 feet; the
*»•< ond time Mme. Goddard and lime.
Dartoir were of the party.
The exciting moment for the exhibi
tors has arrived, the jurors aie finish
ing their work, and tin- question of
prizes, ami especially of the grand
prize of honor, is a burning one. Of
course nobody knows anything of what
is going on in the jury room, nor in the
juryman's breast; but tliero are certain
rumors, and some not of a pleasant
kind. These do not, however, refer to
any of the American exhibitors.
Yesterday some very interesting ex
periments, with the telephone and pho
nograph combined, were made in the
telegraphic section, before the jury.
The mouths of the two instruments
were placed together, and the words
engraved upon the phonographic cylin
ders were soon heard distinctly in the
telephone reception room at Versailles,
and r ice rerna. After this the interlocu
tor at Versailles sang au original song
through the telephone which was taken
down in the phonograph al the Cbauip
de Mars, and it was sung and repeated
by this instrument, amid general ap
plause. These are among the first ex
periments which have been made with
the two instruments together, and it is
evident that they may be very usefully
applied.
If you have duly obtained a press
pass to the Exhibition, adorned with
your photograph, and with official sig
natures, which rentier it doubly valu
able to posterity, theu you have the
right to claim admittance to the Kress
Pavilion. It is situated near the Post
office, and has a telegraph office of its
own; but this has practically broken
down, and the journalists use now the
same wires aud letter-boxes as other
men. The value of the Paviliou is in
affording a cool and quiet retreat to
write, and one supplied with all the
newspapers. Here are all the principal
papers in tho world, and through the
care of some Polish gentleman connect
ed with the Parisian press, the Pavil
ion is especially rich in Slavonic papers.
The Pavilion has many studies and
boudoirs, in addition to the graat read
ing room; and ladies and music are, it
is said, not to be excluded from it. It
is hoped, however, that some rooms
will be preserved for solitude and quiet,
or the benefits of all its other advan
tages will be lost to the working bees of
journalism, for whom it was designed.
France, Italy, and Belgium contain
the chief centres of production of mar
ble work. In couscqueuee of the in
creased facilities for transport, and the
decrease in custom duties, this branch
of ludustry has ffourshed and increased
considerably iu Franch since 1870.
Paris in this, as iu so many other indus
tries. is the chief seat of the trade. The
marble* are brought from the north,
also from Marseilles, the Pyrenees, the
West, aud from Java. Th» great works
at the Louvre, the Tuileries, and the
new Opera House, have brought the
employment of marble decoration in
luxuriant habitations into general
favor. Working in marble is divided
into four distinct branches —namely,
buildings, decorations, clockmakiag,
and monuments. Each of these branches
is well represeued in class 18; but the
merit of the French manufacture is
especially noticeable in tho marble dec
orations, the execution of which will
bear comparison with the work of
Renaissance, In the time of Louis XIV.
The art of ornamental sculpture employs
a comparatively large staff of artists
and workmen. Thus, the models exe
cuted iu potter's clay arc cast by the
moulder, and tue ornaments are stamp
ed either in statuary, pasteboard, mill - j
Uiard staff or plaster.
The Canadian trophy is one of the
great sight* of the Exhibition, and
oomes prominently before the notice of
American tourists because it is rlose to
the American refreshment department.
Solid petroleum is among the riches
shown in the C*na lian section; and, as
the sightseer makes his way toward
the trophy, he comes upon a great gil
der. mass raised in th»? air. apparently
without any sufficient mean* of ;«uppor!,
which, nevertheless, testifies to the
riches of Canada, by an in»:riptioi» let
ting out that it represents th* amount
of gold gathered in Canada up to the
end of the y» ar 1877, namely. 3,8-j2,00G
in liritt-h Columbia, 27,000 in New
Scotland, and .10,000 in other provinces,
making a total amount of 4,173,000,
ou iC'", worth $38,460,000.
The elevator in the Trocadero is at
last finished, and will be placed at the
disposal of visitors m two or three days.
Even thr.se who know the building
well, and have watched the progress of
the elevator, are astonished by its
enormous proportions. The tower on
which it is erected rises to the height
of 283 feet above the surface of the hill
on which it standi, and to 390 feet
above the level of the Seine. The pis
tou by which it is worked descends into
a well, which passe? through the old
• juarry below to the depth of sixteen
feet below the level of the sea. The
counterpoises, each of which is com
posed of a mass of iron 65 feet long
and weighs ten tons, work in two other
wells. The triple wire cable is eight
io< hes wide and one and one fifth
inches thick, and is formed of 888 wires
four-fifths of an inch in diameter. The
resistance of each cable is calculated to
be two hundred tons. The cage of the
elevator is about ll£ feet in diameter.
The flight upwards is performed in two
minutes. The view from the summit
is grand, embracing not only tho city,
tbe.fioisde Boulogne and St. Germain,
but a view of the Seine, with all its
curiosities, as far as Mantes. A fee of
a franc will be charged for the ride.
