The Pennsylvania State Fair will this
year be held at Harrisburg, commencing
Septemrer 29th, 1803, and will continue
four days. It promises to be one of the
largest ever held in the State. The loca
lity is very central, and accessible from
all parts of tne State by railroads. Wc
are informed by the Secretary that already
many inquiries are being made by exhi
bitors with great promises of an exhibi
tion of their articles. The grounds con
tain sixty acres and are located ou the
banks of the Susquehannah, with in a coo
venient distance of Harrisburg, and about
one-half mile from the line of the Penn
sylvania Railroad.

for Grant. He writes thus in a private
letter to Gen. B. F. Kelly: "I can nev

lie field, and which its advocates staked
od the result of the war and forced up
on the patriotism of the county, shall be
gained through the ballot box.

the representative of Wall street, has ex-
c;ted some curiosity here in regard
to
this new Western railroad kin-', and I
have been at considerable pains to learn
his history. Mr. Keep's first distinct re
collection of life is connected with the
poorhouse of Jefferson county, New York,
into which the death of his father in
poverty had consigned his mother and
himself.
Having thus lived until he became old
enough, as the county officials thought,
to earn his own living, he was bouud out
to a neighboring farmer, who gave him
plenty of hard work, but no schooling, as I
i, l i i i:,tU i u . !
he had agreed, and little elc that w..s

began to collect Canada money and take
. . . .
it over the border to exchange for State
currency, always at profit. By shrewd
ness, care and economy he accumulated
at least enough money to start a bank,
which he did at Watertown, where he
married the daughter of Mr. Woodward,
a prominent and wealthy citizen. lie
established several other country banks,
and finally going to New York, he took
a leading position on Wall street as a
terwards lor about six montns president
of the New York Central.
At the annual election of the Chicago
and Northwestern railroad in this city,
June 4th, Mr. Keep controlled about23,
000,000 of the 30,000.000 ol stock re
presented, owning himself $1,500,000 and
of course secured his almost unanimous
election. Some fear was felt by the peo
ple of this region that the superseding of
.Mr. Ogdcn by a Wall street financier
would not be for the advantage of the
West, but as we yet see no cause for
anxiety.

his transactions amount to vast sums.
lie was prompt and liberal in talking Uni
ted States securities during the war, when
many were prophesying ruin, srrying that
it was the duty of every mau to stand by
the Government. He lost nothing by his
patriotism. He owns a fiuc mansion ou
Fifth avenue, and it is to be hoped en
joys the fruits of his upright and perscr-
vering career.
An Old and True Friend.
A gentlemen played off a rich joke on
his better-half the other day. Being
somewhat of on epicure, he took it into
his head that morning that he should like
to have a first-rate dinner. So he ad
dressed her a note politely informing her
that a gentleman of her acquaintance
an old and true friend would dine with
her that day. As soon as she received it,
all hands went to work to get everything
in order. Precisely at twelve o'clock she
was prepared to receive her guest. The
house was as cleau as a uew pin a sump
tuous dinner was on the table, and she
was arrayed in her best attire. A gentle
knock was heard, and she started with a
palpitating heart to the door. She
thought it must beau old friend, perhaps
a brother, from the place whence they
once moved. On opening the door she
saw her husband with a smiliug counten
ance. "Why, my dear," said the, in an anx
ious tune, "where is the gentleman of
whom you spoke iu your note V
"Why," replied the husband, compla
cently, "here he is."
"i ou taid a gentleman of my acquaint
ance an old oud true friend would dine
with us to day."
"Well," said he, good-humorcdly, "am I
not a gentleman of your acquaiutauce, an
old and true friend if"
"Oh 1" cried, she istrcssingly, "istheree
nobody but you V
"No."
"Well, I declare this is too bad," said
his wife, in an angry tone.
Tho hufcbaud laughed immoderately,
but finally they sat dowu cosily together,
and for once he had a good dinner with
out having company.

THE VERMONT ELECTION.
There is confessedly little iu a Ver
mont election to excite the interest or
enthusiasm ol the Democracy. I ho fcfatc j
since its formation, litis been in the polit
ical coutrol of enemies of the Democratic
party. The average Republican major
ity for the past ten years has been about
twenty thousand. Of course, in a State
so little affected by the tides of national
politics, or even by exciting Leal issues,
as Vermont, it would be extremely rash
to expect other than a Republican triumph.
Still, one may reasonably exvt some
Democrat crumbs of comfnrt, evea from
the. Green Mountain $t roijhohl of the
Radicals. The vote for the past two years
has been as follows :

The election in Vermont yesterday, as
icas expected, resulted in favor of the
Radicals. A larger vote than that cf last
year was polled by both parties; the in-
crease being greater cn the Radical than
on the Democratic side. The Democrats,
not having bestirred themselves during
the campaign, except so far as to indulge
iu a spasmodic effort at the very last mo-
mcut, alluiced the election to ;o hi dc-
- u J
fault, iustly considering that its result
would be in no degree indicative of the
political sentiment of the country. The
taking of Holland by the Dutch, and the
success of the Itadicals in Vermont, are
identical. The Radicals have done no
better than they did four ears ajo : the
Democrats have done no worse.

Revenue Decision-Important to Lum
ber Dealers and Carpenters.
A letter from Thomas Harland, Acting
Revenue Commissioner, contains matters
of considerable interest to lumber dealers
and carpenters. It is in regard to the
articles included in the term "uninancu
factured lumber," in the Revenue law,
and is in reply to an inquiry from Mr.
Smith. The Commissioner says :
term 'unmaufactured lumber' is h
"The
eld to
j iuclude all lumber in the rough as it
comes from the saw, such r.s sawed tim
ber, boards, shingles, laths, etc. But lum
ber planed, tongued,,;groovcd. or other
wise dressed, is liable to the tax impossed
on sales by the act of March 31 1S03."
In Indiana several infiucutial gentlemen

against tho Radical ticket, but are now
working for tho canidato nominated at

their aid carried Indiana two year? ago
by 14,000 majority, they feel coufident of
