Petroff, wbo was expdl- ed from tbe Legislature a few days before it adjourned, has already an nounced Limeelf as a candidate for re-election to that body. L?ov. Hendricks' Lome is at Sbel lynile, Ind., which tbe Republicans mrrv- ibis rear br 98 majority, sweep- .rm marrl This IS ft Cain of "6 120 over last year. The indications are that tbe Sen ate, sitting as a court of impeach ment in tbe tase of ex-Secretary Rel knop, will decide that tbey bare no power to impeach a prime citizen, and tbus tba case will end. His res ignation was accepted before proceed ings were commenced against him. Pab.-on JJrowslow saysbesball pupport tbe nominee of tbe Cincinnati Convention, and teat be is opposed to any roan for tbe Presidency who does now or ever did or ever will look with tbe least degree of favor n non tbe late secession war. Tbc i - - sturdy old parson is not going to be alonc1iy any means in tbe next cam paign in this determination. . The Koston Watrfunan, religious paper, thinks: "It is time to turn about and investigate these "investi gations." Tbc party in power osea witnesses just as a barg'ar uses a dark lantern. "A little light ia let on to certain spots, but if there is any suspicion that tbe bolder of the lan tern is suspected by tbe good man of tbc house, out goes the light." As i he result of bringing up Gov. Morton's war record, the Cincinnati Commercial says: "Tbe Confeder ate Brigadiers all remember with a nigb tbe little anecdote related in the House by Sam Cox about tbe negro boy who tickled tbe hind legs of a mule and was not bo handsome after wards, but knew a great deal more." The opening of tbe Centennial Ex position appears to bare been a grand success. As compared wub other international expositions this ia said to be in many poiuts superior to all that have preceded it. In the display of machinery it is incomparably ahead of anything the world has ever seen, and tbe manufacturing de partment is said to have never been equaled. Tbe representations of tbe nations of tbe world is complete with exceptions of Greece and a few South American Republics. The space covered by the exhibition exceeds ibat of any previous cue, being a to tal of 236 acres. For full particu lars Jof the opening we rcler readers to the letter of our special correspond ent. Tiik most disgraceful contest for a I'nited States Scnatorship ever wit nessed in this country, was brought to a close in Connecticut on Wednes day by tbe nomination of Congress man Barnum over Senator Koglish. Both of these Democratic candidates were millionaires, and bolb had bought the office, and paid for it, and were desperately in earnest to get it Tbe friends of English boas ted that he had given to tbe party S'JI.fiOrt this year, giving first $10,000 aud then $10,000 lor Slate distribu tion, liesides $1,300 for exclusive use by tbe local committee in Xew Haven. Barnum's friends retorted by claiming that be bid almost "double discounted" English every year, and that to him more than to any other man was the late uprising of tbe Democracy ic that State due. Neither candidate had any decent qualifications for the position, and tbe State baa been disgraced by their respective "claims" and tbeir fero cious fight. Tns Democracy of the Sooth hare commenced "organizing" for the Presidential campaign. Their motto is "anything to beat the Republi cans," and assassination is a ready means of removing a political oppo nent Tbus, to terrorize tbe blacks and destroy a Republican majority in the Senate of Louisiana, a colored Senator was a few days since, delib erately murdered. Of course this political agency, relied upon by Southern Democrats, while it cannot be openly justified by tbe Northern wing of the party, will be protected by every means in their power, and tbe method now in Toge is to repre sent all denunciation of such crimes as waving the bloody shirt. There is no doubt, in fact it has been in many plaeee admitted, that the De mocracy have determined to carry tbe Southern Slates by any and ev ery means within tbeir reach, and to effect this, fraud, riolence, terrorism, and murder are onbesitalinglyre sorted to. The proof is conclusive . that an overwhelming Democratic - majority .was focced by fraud, and vi olence into tbe Legtslature-o -Alis-issippi for tbe purpose 'of electing a Confederate U. 8. Senator and re moving tbe Republican officials by impeachment, so as to give control of tbe State to the rebel Democracy in tbe corniag Presidential election. The same game was adopted in Ala bama, and tried without success in Louisiana, and now assassination has been resorted to, for the purpose of effecting what fraud failed to do. The Democratic politicians of the Sautb are bold, desperate, shrewd, and utterly uns;rupuloas. Tbey are playing tbeir game to win at all hazards. By these usurpations, ac complished through fraud, terror and blood, State after State of the Jsmtn have fallen under their control until that section now etanda against us nearly as it did previous to tbe war in 18C0. With a united South tbey have but to carry one or two of tbe large Northern States to usurp tbe National power, and undo all the work of reconstruction and reverse tbe results of the war. Thus it will be seen that the situation is critical, the South pursuing tbe same policy that it inaugurated in Kansas, and their Northern allies that then sneer ed and jibed at "bleeding Kansas," now in common concert derisively railing and scoffing at the "bloody 6birt" This is the political situation to-dav; the Southern Democracy are consolidating their power by die means above indicated, while their Northern allies and tools, by trump ing up charges of corruption against every leading Republican statesman and soldier of tbc late war, hope to so blacken their characters and im pair confidence in their integrity that none of them will be strong enough to defeat the candidate tbey may set tle upon for tbe Presidency. The Democratic St. Louis fieptib' li'-on says in a tone of undisguised alarm: 'If tbe revival of violence and bloodshed in Coushatta parish Louis iana, reported by the telegraph, is a sign of the way the canvass and elec tion in that State are to be conduct ed, we shall have a good deal of trouble on our bauds. It seems im possible for tbe white people of Lou isiana to understand that these bloody disturbances only prolong tbe regime the j are no anxious to get rid of. A few days ago it was stated that Gov. Kellogg bad asked tbe President to station more troops in tbe State to insure the peace and pro tect the buiks in tbe canvass. At first we imagined this was one of Kellogg's usual devices to overawe the whites and control tbe election; but the shooting of a Republican Senator and bis brotber-in-law at Coushatfa, and the demand of an armed body of men for the resigna tion of the parish officers of West Feliciana, show that no improvement in tbe condition of the State has been made since the violent proceedings of three years ago." Tbat certainly is strong language to come from a Democratic paper in an old slave State on a subject which touches its party so nearly. And it is a great pity tbat carefully reading the Republican3 protest aga:nst bloodshed does not show that it is made because men are killed for po litical opinions, but tbat tbe murder ine of Republicans will have a bad effect on tbe Democratic .vote in No vember and October. We think the Republican may rcs.t assured that the "violence and bloodshed" it de precates, rather than condemns, is a sign "of tbe way the canvass in Louisiana," aud other States in the South where the Republicans have an undoubted majority, is to bo con ducted. And let us hope tbat it is not mistaken in its fears of the tre mendous force of the public indigna tion these will arouse against tbe par ty tbat dares to employ such means to win a political advantage. That violence and bloodshed on the one band, and an appeal to the nation for protection from these outrages is an issue now made up to be fought out, one way or tbe other, in the Presi dential campaign, all men of average understanding see clearly; and the forerunner of this eternal waifare is shown by tbe following bulletin from New Orleans of May o: Acting Governor Antoine has of fered $5,000 reward for the arrest of the Cousbata assasin. Advices re ceived at the State Ilousa report that Senator Twitchell is still living, bat in a precarious condition. His left arm has been amputated, and bis right arm is so badly shattered tbat tbe doctors propose to take it off also. Communications received this morning from West Feliciana parish, state tbat Weber, Stale Senator, Dula, Parish Judge, and Armstead, ex-member of the House of Repre sentatives, have been driven oiU of the parish by "regulator'' and com pelled to take tbe woods. Tbeir fate is cot known. Ol B XEW YORK LETTER. New York, May 15, IS 6. tTEOIE FOR AXD AGAINST. Those old fogies who feared that tbeir children would never know a silver quarter by eighi, bave their forebodings made vain by tbe little nurry or it from tbe treasury. It is no unusual thing down town to get dimes and quarters, and it is tbe cor rect thing for ladies' stores up-town to pay out at least one piece of new sil ver with the change to each custo mer. But the streets are aot exactly ft oded with it just yet, and there is not so much in circulation as was anticipated, for the reason tbat when tbe banks paii out silver everybody oegan to board it np; those wbo bad large 6ums, to sell when it was at a premium again, and those who had little, kept tbe first quarter paid tbem for pocket-pieces. Tbe business men and banks find it difficult to get enough specie for their wants after all. PRIVATE AND PROFIT AKIE THEATRI CALS. The Amateur Theatrical Society. made np largely of young people con nected wuh Mr. Frotbingbam's church, has plenty of laurels and substantial success to look back to at the close of its season. It has play- ea on Maten island, and I believe in brooklyn, for charities, and in New York repeatedly for the Centennial and for benevolent objects, realizing over $5,000 clear. Their last enter tainment this week was by no means tbeir least flattering success. These theatricals are qnite recherche affairs. tbe audience, all tbat is most fashiona ble, as it is something of a favor to wcore tickets, wbiebjare only obtaina ble from the committee.aod tbe play ing is good eoous-b to call oat special commendation from the best critics of tbe daily papers. Mr. Geo. Wm. Curtis, of Harpers Magazine, drama tized bis old sketches, "Tbe Potlpkar Papers" for this society, prominent among whose members are Calbcrl Vaux, the Architect and Mr Freder erick Stedman, tbe oldest eon of the poet Stedman ; while a daughter of tbe artist Frank Carpenter, counted by judges one of tbe most Wautiful girl in New York, is one of the fa vorite actresses in ladies' parts. Judge Barrett and his daughter play ed in one pie;e. a week or two before the Judge left the city, in which he took tbe part of a young man, look ing about twenty-five, and the daugh ter was bis sweetheart. FEMININE hl.AU KEATS. There is misery enough in the city, bui there is a pitiful ludicrous side to not a few of tbe appeals made for aid. For instance, there is the lady usually of Southern extraction wbo has suddenly lost a large prop erty, and is thrown on her own re sources, and must make a living by her talents. Mind, it is the talents, pure and single; for she cannot wait for such trifles as training and busi ness management She either selects to go on tbe lecture platform or gives readings, for which somebody has to provide her with a costume, more or less gorgeous, and a hair dresser. There used to be a middleman for this sort of thing, in tbe shape of an unfortunate lvceum Birent, but a not very long contributed conrse of lvce- . , . b i i, .

You are to take tickets, all tbe same, and pay for them on the spot; for the lady wants tbe money to live on, and, as she re marks "she is such a child in these matters, it is no hard for ber to bave to go round and distribute tbem in this way." This is no fancy picture, but what took place in the writer's presence in an office not two days ago. BLl'E FREKIIIT LINE. This name includes all roads ex cept the Central just now, for tbe an nual spring amusement of cutting rates is going on in lively earnest Tbe 2d of March last, the roads en- ; tered into a compact to raise rates, making tbe price for carrying a bush el oi grain to tnis city Jo cents a bushel on all lines. Tbe officers of the New York central claim that tbey immediately put tbis rate in force on their road, acting in good faith, while other roads did not give notice of tbe change of terms to tbeir agents for a montn altera ara ; oi course giving tbem a large advantage over tbe Central as long as they adhered to lbe old rates. Forced to defend themselves, tbe Central cut down their rates to 20 cents per hundred pounds, or about 12 cents a bushel, which makes good times for the grain buyers. Since tbe Central cut loose from tbe combination, tbeir receipts of grain, which were some 40.000 bushels per week, bave no up to uu,uuu. ine competition so lar is confined to east bound freight, but tbe fight is so Gerce between the con tending roads, tbat it 19 confidently expected tbat tbe freights on west- going freight will speedily be cut, and shippers are holding their cargoes in anticipation of the fal 1. Not long since tbe ireigbt lines otiereU to car ry packages at about 12 cents each, to cut under tbe postage packet rates. but dropped it as soon as Congress bad taken action on tbe bill to reduce third-class postage. Still tbis action shows what we may look for in tbe general shrinkage of all rates, and the fullness of competition When monopolies suffer, tbe people rejoice A UOOD WORD FOR PAPER. Apropos of Mr. Blaine's resolution in tbe House of Representatives, di recting tbe committee of ways -and means to consider some measure to relieve the country from the threat ened scarcity of fractional currency comes a paragraph from Macaulay's diary in Rome, where he speaks of drawning one hundred pound worth of coin from To-loria's baBk, aad lugiug it through the streets, in a huge canvass bag, muttering, witb strong feeling, Pope's "Blest Paper Credit" lbe truth is gradually dawing on legislators, that both paper and specie are necessary for conven ience in business. Those wbo do not think so are waiting for the re turn of the good old days when bank officers had to set up nights to count tbeir coin, and trower pockets bulg ed ungracefully with money enough to go on a day's sporting. A CONTRAST. I spoke above of women wbo migh- be classed as dead beats, but there are too many worthy ones wbo de serve both sympathy and encourage ment, to allow sport on the subject. Tbe other day a lady went to the of fice of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children to get tie par ticulars of a case for the newppapers. While she was there, a gentleman came in to band Mr. Bergh a check for $-200 in aid of tbe Society. Mr. Bergh said that, with tbe utmost thankfulness for his generosity, be, personally, must protest against re ceiving it, as the gentleman had al ready contributed largely beyond his just proportion. The donor refused any deprecation of bis gift, saying be bad neither wife.cbild or relation in any way dependingon bim, and it was more pleasure for bim to give than to witbold, for "if I took it back," be said, "I should not know what to do with it" What sort of sickness went through tbe woman's heart wbo beard the words ? She was trying for her life to make a living for three chil dren by writing, as she conld get em ployment here and there, but through tbe winter they had suffered from want of food and fire. Tbey bad been well to do till the bard times came, when tbejr pretty home was swept away, and she was thrown up on ber own exertions, bhe was well dressed from tbe remains of her war drobe, and had no complaints to make, but any mother can guess how bitterly and longingly she listened to this rich man speaking of money with which he did not know what to do, bile she stood by in her sore want, forbidden to make one sign for the help which would doubtless have been gladly offered, had any one known the need of it Cannot the rich make it part of their benevo lence to make work for tbe poor, up right souls who only ask to be al lowed. a. -chance to earn a livinir There i work enough the world would be bitter for having done if anyone had tbe wisdom and the heart to find it out, and bring it in reach of the willing worker. In hopes tbat this mention mar bring the two to gether, I speak of one case tbat late ly came to my knowledge. A young Swredish pianist, wbo graduated from tbe conservatory of Stockholm, after six years study, with high hon ors, and came to this country, to teach musie; but coming without knowledge of the language, and without influential friend.', ha been able to make but tbe barest living. She is a very brilliant and fiuinLed performer, as I can say from ac quaintance, and I can but hope that her with to find some place where her musical services would secure her a borne in any part of tbe couutry may be realized. METRO, CENTENNIAL LETTER. BTOI R sii.i.4LcoKBi:aroxaTT pHiLADELrutA, May 10, 1$6. Editor Herald. Tbe long lock ed for event has taken place and tbe exhibition is now open to the world, and 1 think that all tbe world was there to see tbe openiug. All ibe city was astir at day-break this morn ing and tbe firing of cannon, et,d the ringing of bells awoke me. Every house in the whole city was prufuse- 1-. J ....J ..'.I. noil ,o all walk on the exception, as it rained severely all last night 'and now at three o'clock has commenced again giving belated visitors tbe benefit of a cheap bath. Tbe guests passed from one dor direct to the other, passing through tbe main buildiug in tbe middle (where a temporary stand had been erected for tbe Presidential party in case of rain outside), and out to where tbe platform for tbe siDgers was placed. Tbe place for the Commissioners and tbat for the Presidential party was built up against the Art Gallery, or Memorial Hall, and was of great ex tent, yet scarcely large enougb to bold tbe great quantity of people massed above. 1 be Pres platform and seats were directly in front of tbe President's stand. Accommoda tions were made for 550 persons, but so insufficient was tbe guard or po lice and mar'nes that the mass crowded and pushed tbeir way with in the ropes until there was no pos sibility of writing, lbe hot sun pressed down on tbe pushing, swel tering crowd till a number fainted. Tbe various foreign Commissioners were all dressed in tbeir gorgeous uni forms resplendent in gold lace. Anioug tbem was Aristarcbi Bey. and his Nephew Roustoum Effendi wbo look ed exactly like a cigar stand statue in bis embroidered costume. Tbe Commissioners from the different state and tbeir ladies, the members of Congress and Representatives with their ladies, and lbe Womans commission occupied tbe platform seats. At about ten o'clock the Emperor of Brazil with the Empress leaning on bis arm, his staff and her ladies of honor passed up tbe aisle kept open with so much trouble and mounted lbe platform. I could not find out tbe names of tbe honorable gentlemen who were appointed to receive tbeir majesties at tbe head of tbe stair case, though I tried hard. for I wished to band the in down to posterity as models ef good breeding. Tbe noble old Emperor kept bis head bare to tbe fierce beat of tbe sun while mounting tbe steps and on tbe platform, while these gentlemen kept theirs on as tightly as u it was a part of their religion. Tbe Empe ror was loudly cheered. Soon after Speaker Blaine went up and was applauded, but not witb as heartfelt a cheer as when gallant Phil Sher idan mounted. It seemed as if tbat whole crowd thought but one word and felt but one impulse, and that, Sheridan ! After bim came Fred Douglas bis hair white as 6now. lie was received with cheers and went on up as if be was on bis way to the White House. Then after a short pause General Grant arrived and was greeted with deafenibg shouts of welcome. All this while the music from the immense orchestra opposite was making itsself faintly beard by times, in lulls of noise in tbe great crowd, playing hymns of dif ferent nations, but somehow none of tbem rung out so grand as the Marsellaise. I don't blame tbe French for firing np at tbe sound. Tbe grand march about which so much has been written and said, and for which so much money bs paid, did not make much of an impression, possibly because there was so much otber noise going on. After that cume a prayer by Right Reverencd Bibop Simpson, which was delivered very poorly be ing indistinct at a distance of twenty feet. What I beard I transcribe: "Bless we pray Tbee, the President of tbe I'nited States and his constitutional advisors, the Judges of tbe Supreme Court, the Senators and Representa tives in Congress, the Governors of our several commonwealth, tbe offi cers of tbe Army and the Nary, and all who are in official position throughout cor land. We pray the benediction especially on the women of America, wbo for the first time in the history of our race take so conspicuous a place in a national celebration. May the light of their intelligence, purity and enterprise shed its light far until in distant lands tbeir visitors may realize tbe beauty and glory of Christian freedom and elevation. We beseech Tbee Almighty Father that our be loved Republic may be strengthened in every element of true greatness until her mission is accomplished by presenting to tbe world an illustra tion of tbe happiness of a free peo ple." After the prayer was finished tbe grand chorus of one thousand male and female voices sang Wbittier's Centennial Hymn. Tbe melody was simple but very barmouious and rich. Mr. John Welch, President Board of Finance, rose and transferred tbe buildings to the Centennial Commis sion in a neat little speech. After tbis, Sidney Larnier's can tata was sung, Myron W. Whitney of Boston sung tbe solo. A better ef fort I never heard. After this was finished and it was awfully long, General Uawley rose and spoke as follows: Mr. President: Five years ago, tbe President of the United States declared it fitting tbat "tbe comple tion of the first century of our na tional existence should be commemo rated by an exhibition of tbe natural resources of the country and tbeir development, and of its progress in those arts which benefit mankind," and ordered tbat an exhibition of American and foreign arts, products ana manuiactures should be held, no jder the auspices of the government iof the United States, in the city of PK;t.totnk; :n ik. .. i ore ' T, i put into effect tbe peveral laws relat- ; . . insr to tbe exhibition, tbe l uwd , j State centennial ernimissinn was con stituted, composed of two commis sioners from eacb State and Territory nominated by tbeir respective Gov ernors, and appointed by the Presi dent Th Congress also created our auxiliary and associate corpora tion, tbe centennial board of finance, whoso unexpectedly heavy burdens bave bee uobly borne.

You bave observed tbe sur passing beauty of tbe situation placed at our disposal. In harmony ailb all its' fitness is the liberal support given tbe enterprise by the State, the city and tbe people individually In tbe name of the United States you extended a respectful aud cordial invitation to tbe governments of oth er nations to be represented and to participate in ibis exbibiiion. Yoa know tbe very acceptable terms in which they responded, from even tbe most distant regions. Tbeir commis sioners are here, aud you will soon see with what euergy aud brilliancy tbey have entered upon tbis friendly competition in the arts of peace. It has beeu tbe fervent bope of tbe commission tbat, during tbis festive year, tbe people from all States, aud sections, of all creeds and churches all parties and classes, burying all re sentments, would come up together to tbis birthplace of our liberties to study tbe evidence of our resources; to measure the progress of an hun dred years, and to examine to our profit the wonderful products of other lauds; but especially to join bands in perfect fraternity and promise tbe God of our fathers tbat tbe new cen tury shall surpass tbe old in tbe true glories of civiliaiion. And further more, tbat from tbe association here of welcome visitors from all nations, there may result not alone great ben efits to invention, manufactures, ag riculture, trade and commerce, but also stronger international friend ships and more lasting peace. Thus reporting to you, Mr. Presi dent, under tbe laws of tbe govern ment and tbe usage of similar oc casions, in tbe name of the United States Centennial Commission, I pre seut'to your view the International Exhibition of ISf.G. Tbis oration was received with great applause and pleasure. Presi dent Grant ihaa came forward aud .Dade his short soldier-like bow. His solemn face and quiet manner seemed to awake a slumbering fire tbat touched the powder of public enthusiasm and lbe cheers at his ap pearance were deafening. His ad dress was short, terse and to tbe point, aud was delivered in a manner tbat nude every word distinct. I transcribe the President's address certain that all will Gnd it worthy of tbe man: Mr. Countryman: It has been thought appropriate, upon tbis cen tennial occasion, to bring together in Philadelphia, for popular inspec tion, specimens of our attainments in tbe industrial and fine arts, and in lit erature, science and philosophy, as well as in tbe great business of agri culture and of commerce.

Our achievements have been great enougb, however, to make it easy for our people to acknowledge superior merit wherever found. And now, fellow citizens, I hope a careful examination of what is about to be exhibited to you will not only inspire you with a profound re spect for tbe skill and taste of your friends from other nations, bnt also satisfy yon with the attainments made by our owu people dunog tbe past 1008 year. I invoke your gen erous co-operation with tbe worthy commissioners to secure a brilliant success to this international exhibi tion, and to make tbe stay of our foreign visitors to w hom we extend a bearty welcome botb profitable and pleasant to tbem. I declare tbe international exhibition now open. Alter tbis came tbe unfurling of tbe flag on Main Building, which was followed by tbe unfurling of all others which had been kept tied un til that time.
