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.

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.

among whose members are Calbcrl
Vaux, the Architect and Mr Freder

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

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.

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

confined to east bound freight, but

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.

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

those arts which benefit mankind,"
and ordered tbat an exhibition of
American and foreign arts, products

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.
TLat we may tbe more thoroughly
appreciate the excellencies and defi
ciencies oi our achievements, ana
also give emphatic expression to our
earnest desire to cultivate tbe friend
ship of our fellow members of tbis
great family of nations, the enlight
ened agricultural, commercial and
manufacturiug people of the world
bave been invited to send bilber cor
responding specimens of tbeir skill
to exhibit on equal terms in friendly
competition wub our own. loibis
uvitation tbey bave generously re
sponded; for so doing we reuder tbem
our beaity thanks.
Tbe !eauiv and utility of lbe con
tributions w.ll tbis day be submitted
to your inspection by the managers
of this exhibition. We are glad to
know that a view of speciuiens of the
skill of all nations wili afford to you
unalloyed pleasure, as well as yield
to you a valuable practical knowl
edge of so many of the remarkable
results ef lbe wonderful skill exist
ing in enlightened communities.
Oue hundred years ago our coun
try was new and but partially settled.
Our necessities bave compelled us o
chiefly expjnd our means and time
in felling forests, subduing prairies,
building dwellings, factories, ships,
docks, warehouses, roads, canals,
machinery, etc Most of our schools.
churches, libraries and asylums bave
been established witbin an hundred
years, uurtbened by these great
primal works of necessity, which
could not be delayed, we yet have
done what tbis exhibition will show
in the direction of rivaling older and
more advanced nations in law, medi
cine and theology, in science, litera
ture, philosophy and the fine arts.
b list proud of what we have done,
we regret tbat we bave not done
more. 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. When tbe flag after two
inefectual attempts, was at last

I'liii.APELFiHA, May 10. AH day
Vi'Merday, last night, and this morn
ing trains arriviug here from every
direction bave been bringing crowds
of people to tbe city from all parts of
tbe globo to witness the opening cer
emonies ot tbe Nation's International
Kxpos'lion to-day.
The scene on tbe streets through
out tbe city is beyond description.
The city is gorgeously decorated and
alive with flags and people from an
early hour tbis morning, notwith
standing the inclemency of the
weatber. Up to half past 8 o'clock
a drizzling raiu bad been prevailing,
but tbe weatber baa cleared up beau
tifully. Tbe exhibition ground were open
ed precisely at 9 o'clock, and a con
tinuous stream of visitors set in.
Tbe weather is clear and a light
breeze blowing. Tbe ceremonies
opened at 10:15 a. m. by tbe national
airs of all countries being performed
by a large orchestra. Fifty thousand
people are now present, and they are
still flowing iu.
11a. m. Wagner's march perform
ed, followed by Bishop Simpson's
prayer, during which tbe vast assem
blage stood uncovered.
11:35 a. m. Fully 1 00,000 persous
present, tbe cantata w reudered
with fine effect, followed by Hawley's
presentation speech aud Grant's ac
ceptance. Precisely at noon the American
flag was unfurled in main building,
ringing cbiraea, Hallelujah chorus
and one hundred guns, after which
the precession, beaded by President
Grant, moved through the main build
ing. A short time before the grand pro-
ces-ion, wbicn was to follow the in
augural exercises commenced, tbe
military cleared tbe entire space be
tween the board of finance building,
judges' pavilion and main and ma
chinery ball, and placed around this
immense square a file of soldiers.
Tbe claring of tbis space was a
work of some trouble. Tbe place
had on tbe arriving of tbe military,
filled op witb lbe visitors to ibe
grounds, and it was onlr br march
ing the soldiers on tbem tbat it was
practicable to clear the ground.
As the President and bis party
passed through the soldiers all pre
sented arms and tbe officers went
through tbe formula of a military sa
lute, to which tbe President respond
ed by gracefully raising his bat.
1:10 p. ni. Tbe presidential party,
with tbe procession of officiating and
visiting dignitaries, borne and for
eign, passed tbreugh tbe main build
ing, and a lew minutes before one
o'clock reached machinery ball, and
shortly after the President himself,
with the assistance of Mr. Corliss, of
Ilht'ide Island, started tbe great Cor
liss engine and all its connecting
wheels and shafts. Tbe whistles
were sounded, all the flags hitherto
furled were given to the breeze, there
was a general huzza from tbe people,
and with this concluding ceremony
ibe centennial exbibiiion was formal
ly opened to the world.
