A C'liuse ffr ;i Purpose. Yesterday evening, about duek, an exciting chase after a shop-lifter created a momentaiy stir with the crowd that usually gathers on lowei Market street about that hour. Two negro boys entered thj clothing store of M--. A. David, on Market, near i' roni street, and one ot them pre tended to be desirous of purchasing some clothing, and while Mr. David was engaged iu waiting on some cus tomers the smaller of the two com menced to inspect a lot of pants that were lying in tn open drawer. Mr. YVenlzel, the cutter of the establish ment, observing the conduct of the boy approached and took him to the rear of the store, saying that he would sell him anything he desired. After looking at some p .uts, ho declined to buy the-u, mid the two boys went out of the store. bt soon returned, when .Mr. Weutzel noticed one of them shift a lot of clothing uuder his coat aud sb-.rt for the door. Mr. Wentzel theu made after him and the race com aienced. The thief had the length of the store the start. Up Market to Front, up Front to the Pureed House, tnen through the Purcell IIoui- alley to Second, up Seciyid to Princess, and here the thief managed to create a diversion. The thief had manage 1 to make good his escape with his plunder safe in his hand up to this point, rnu ning through ciowds who made no effort to stop him, although they saw that lie was pursued and heard the cry of "stop thief." .The distance for a time was gradually diminishing be- rtweeu the pursuer and the pursued, and the thief thought he must be caught in spite of the fair chance which the spectators gave him to escape. IIj therefore re sorted to a ruse. He had evidently been vrell posted in "Livingstone's Explorations in Africa,"and knew how the natives manage to steal the young lions from the den of the lionese. Livingstone says that when the lioness finds that her young have been stolen, she will take the track of the thief as the bound follows his game by the "nose." When she comes near over taking the thief, he drops oie of the young, the affection for which is stronger in the breast of the lioness than is the feeling of resentment. She therefore takes her recovered treasure back to its home, und starts out again iu search of tho other. Meantime, the wily thief has made good his escape. The thief of the clothing yesterday pursued the same wily scheme. When he reached Princess street be dropped two pairs of pants, which Mr. Wentzel secured, aud turned the chase oyer ta the police ) MfVlOT Iff 4 4 d if H ''lie I) ii p 1 1 it ''rairedy. We learn by a passenger ou last evening's train from Weldon t"nat two sons of 11. B. Htch, who was myste riously murdered in January last whilst sitting in his house at night, were togethei with a negro, undergo ing a preliminary examination before a magistrate at Faison's, in Dupjin i county, upon a charge of being impli cated in the homicide. It apperrs that Il-ttch was exceedingly harsh to his family, frtqueutly beatiug them severely. O l the d y of the m lrder he had administered a terriole flog ging to his wife, and had shut her up in a room declaring that he would llog her again next day. That night three guns were almost simultaneously discharged at him, wounding him so that ho died in a few dtys. His life h id been insured in the North Carolina Home Comp.iny for &1,500. The Compauy refused to pty the amount of the policy on the ground that Hatch's death was brought about by the. children who were its benefiearies. Two detectives, Cameron and Mirtiu, were set to wort to terret out tlie matter. Tney shaddowed a uou-in-law of Hatch named Weeks, who to clear himself assisted in detecting the real perpetrators of the crime. Sus picion fell on two of Hatoh's own sons, one about 17 aud the other 10 or 1J years old, a young daughter, and the negro above alluded to. They were arrestad and taken before a justice of the peace last Saturday. The examination was adjourned to yeste.dav to allow Mr. Granger, of (icy transpire. Hon. Jgessc J.

C, FRIDAY, PHILADELPHIA LETTKK. Opening Ceremonies of tlie Urand Kipovitioii. From Our Secular Correspondent PniiiADEPHiA, May 10th, 1876. The weather during the two or three days preceding the opening of the Grand Centennial Exhibition was not scch as to encourage visitors from the neighboring cities aud States to come on for the occasion. The hot an 1 sultry weather of las': week was fol lowed by a cold disagreeable rain, wnich was, perhaps, appropriate to the occasion, inasmuch as it put the prin cipal thoroughfares as wll as the by ways of the city in a state which, bo far as slush is concerned, served to re mind of the mud-pikes of "the early days of the r. public," but which was ueveitheless not duly appreciated by the numerous visitors who had already arrived, nor by those who were en route from more distant places. 'And if the stieets of the city were iu such n condition as to be almost impassable, how, then, could tho newly iaid out aud poorly and but half paved walks in the Centennial grounds be expected to sustain the pressure of such a throng of visitors as was already in attendance in spite of all obstacles? Yesterday the lain was almost in cessaut, yet every train that arrived i l the city brought buudreds of of ficials and others to whom tiie mvita tiou of the Centennial Commission had been extended, to be present at the opening ceremonies. The President with family aud the cabinet arrived in a special train at noon, and the same train brought the Emperor of Brazil and suite, who occupied a special car. j During the day the various military or j gamzat'ons of the country continued to ' arrive most of them presenting a be- draggled appearance in spite of brass i bands and new uniforms. The large j up town hotels having been already for several days taxed to their utmost capacity, it was, during the day and evening a not unfrequent sight to see newcomers ladies as well us gentle- men wading through the streets in the drizzling rain, iu quest of accom modations. Far above the multitude, from every top-story window, the star spangled banner was making an unsuc cessful effort to wave them welcome; but after a while even thj flags gave it up as a "bad job," and curled them selves up like other wet linen. This morning we were awakened by the chime of the old liberty bell, which in accordance with a proclamation issued by the Mayor of the city, was rung for half an hour at sunrise. It wai expected that it would be accom panied by all the church bells of the city but it was not, aud after it had ceased ringing the city relapsed once more into silence. But this did not last long. Soon the clatter of horses' hoof was heard upon the principal streets; the cavalry was turning out. Presently the infantry, and various civil organizations were heard parad ing; brass bands were making the morning air lively with music. The grand celebration had commenced! A peep out of the window revealed the rather unpleasant fact that t-ie weather was apparently threatening. The sky, however, was not obscured by clouds but was almost totally hid den by tbe millions of flags, which were floating in all directions. As eariy in the morning as six o'clock, every conveyance tunning toward the Centennial was unpleasantly crowded, while those running in other direc tions were proportionately empty. By seven o'clock the grounds were begin- -ng to fill up; and long before nine gr.md stand intended for invited KUtts was crowded, and the aids upon w,1o-i it devolved to keep order could withfj,e utmost difficulty keep the surgii- crowd within bounds. At forty ininuteipast nine the President with party ajj,sared upon the platform, their coming being signalled by a prolonged cheeiins. They were received by Gen. Hawley, President of the Centen nial Comnisiion, wiio conducted them to the seits se-, -i.le for their use. t- -10 minutes aftb- lOo'clock, Gen. Hav ley appeared up,u the speaker's stand aud, uy tne wav.,g 0f a wuuo silk handkerchief, announced the opening of the ceremonies. The araud or chestra of 250 perfomers, under the direction of Theodore'fhomas, imme diately commenced lerformiug the national airs of all nations, commenc ing with tho WashingtonMarch, which formed the first part jf the pro gramme. At half past ten ds Majesty, the Emperor of Brazil, mate his ap pearance, followed by his staff and various members of foreign ltgations. Shortly after his arrival the weLknown sound of Hail Oolumbia, the st of the national airs, broke upon tht mul titude, who answered by three tre mendous chers. By this time iv is estimated that between 80,000 and 100,000 people were upon the grcnndi. With the list strain of the music. Gen. Hawley reappeared upon the staud, formally introducing the Presi dent of the United States. The Grand Inauguration March, composed for the occasion by Kichard Wagner, the greatest of living composers (for which tie received the sum.ot'.$5,0(!0 from the Women's Ceuteuuial Committer) then commenced, but unfortunately the rustle and hum of voices was so great that but little of the music could be heard. Prayer, by the lit. Rev. Bishop Simpson, followed next, it being sue ceeded by the hymu by John Green leaf Whittier, sung by a chorus of 0i)0 voices, accompanied by the Grand Or chestra and the organ in the Main Buiidiug. Th ; buildings were then formally presented to the Centennial Commission by John Welsh, Chairman of the Centennial Board of Finance, and then followed th grandest and most impressive part of ti e ceremo nies, namely, the Grand Cautata, writ ten by SiJney Lauier of Geargia, to music by Dudley Buck of Connecticut, the basso solo being performed by Myron W. Whitney of Boston Words cannot describe the effect of this grand masterwork. The multitude which had heretofore been noisy and demonstrative.gradually subsided inte a silence which was most impressive and made it possible to hear every note of the magnificent music. When Whitney performed his solo in his clear, deep, powerful voice, one might have heard a pin fall, und the momeut the last s iund escaped his lips a tre meudrous applause burst from the audience, never ceasing until he re peated his part. Wheu the sounds of the cantata had died away President Hawley arose and presented the exhibition to the Presi dent of the United States, who made a short address, formally declaring the exlribition to be open to the world. General Hawley then gave the signal for ucfurliug the flag upon the Main Exhibition 13 aim ing, which was done amidst the peal iDg of cannon, chiming of bells, Hallelujah chprus accompanied by mnsic of orchestra and organ, and oheering of over a hundred thousand representatives of all countries of the globe, it exactly 12 o'clock. Au immense procession of all con nected with the exhibition, represen -t itivea of - foreign nations, military tLd other, was not formed, which, preceded by the President, passed thrcngh the Main Building into Ma chinery Hall where the Corliss Engine was put in motion by Presidnnt Grant, assisted by Geo. H. Corliss. This being tbe last part of the programme no further formal order of procession was maintained, and the crowd wa? soon dispersed all over the buildings and grounds, viewing with evident satisfaction the various exhibits. Tho President with party adjourned to the Judges' pavillion, in the great hall of which a reception was heid, ending the formal festivities of the day. Tbe Grand Centennial Exposition of the United States being now thus opened, your correspondent will here after be enabled to devote himself to describing by degrees the numerous articles of interest now congregated, as if by a touch of the magic waul, in the "City of Brotherly Love." For the Journal. Letter from .'I r.!i t t Tlte Kivcraud llnrbrr I nipro venien t I lie Neces sity for Col. Waddell's Xe-nouiU nation. Wilmington, N. C, May 9, 1876. Messrs. Editors : As the time ib now near at hand when a selection is to be made by the people of this dis trict of a representative ot their in terests in the national council, it may be proper, as the representative of the CliHmber of Commerce iu the matter of the public woi k,thatisnow progress ing for the improvement of our harbor and river which we expect to result in large benefit to the material interests of our city and district us well as to the State at large, that I should have something to say on the subject. In doing so I disclaim any n teutton of taking part in general politics. Ow ing to the position I occupy, I have rurposely abstained from active poli tics for several years past, as is well known, but in the present condition of affairs, and in what I regard the best interest of the people of the district for reasons which I shall preseatly g've, I beg to suggest, respectfully, to the convent on, the propriety of re taining in that position the present incumbent. What, may I ask, is the object aud intention oi" sending a representati ve to Congress? Surely it cannot and ought not to be for his own aggrandizement as a special favorite, or from any pei soual consideration. He is placed rather iu the position of a servant or agent to reflect onr people and conntry, our needs and wants, aud to perform all such duties as may present themselves I for the best interest of the people. Ti e question is then to ascertain whether the present incumbent has oerformtd his duty iu these respects, or has iu any way, or at any time neglected, or slighted their interests. I am able to answer that it has been my privilege, as it was mv duty, to spend several weeks together in Wash ington at every session of Congress siuce the present iueumbent has been our Representative, and do not hesi tate to say from my own knowledge and observation that he has been zeal ous, actie, influential and successful in the interests of his constituents. I believe he has done all that conld be done by any one under similar cirenm etauces, and even more than ought reasonably to have been expected. It will be recollected that a mem ber of Congress must be thoroughly educated and trained in the routine of Congressional business before he is efficient, and tbe longer he remains the more proficient he becomes. 'Tis as much a science as any of the arts or professions. We have important public works on baud for improving our harbor, which have been dragging their slow length along for the past six years at a cost of $ti00,000. The work thus far has been very successful, a great deal has been accomplished and the culminat ion has been reached for solving the problem. The critical moment is upon us when all the power and influence which can possibly be brought to bear upon the subject, is absolutely neces sary" at Washington to procure the amount of money required for com pleting the work. One false step, one year's suspension of the work mitrht endanger the whole scheme and dash it beyond our grasp for the I next quarter of a century. The best new man that could be selected from the district might prove power less for good in an emergency and thus endanger it. We cannot afford to take the risk, the otake is too large and the hazaid too great. Under all the circumstances, I beg to submit to the Convention the pro priety of considering well these mat ters before it consents to any change in our Congressional representation. I have no axe to grind in the matter, and no interest whatever greater than that of other citizens of the district. The subject rises superior to personal considerations of interest or politics, and appeals directly to the common sense and material interest of the dis trict aud State at i.irge not to the in cumbent. Respectfully, &c , H. Nutt. WIIO SHALL BE 0111 GOVERNOR? A Voice from Oranjre. From the Durham I'obacco Plant. HON. AVir S. KEID. Among the mauy names, presented through the press, for gubernatorial honors, no le deserves a more favor able consideration than the one placed at the head of this article. What must be the essential charac teristics of the man who is honored with the nomination for Governor by the Democratic State Convention? In the first place, he must be a man whose honesty cannot be doubted or im pugned. Secondly, he must be a man who can draw ou the people and poll a full Democratic vote. No man iu the State of North Carolina can come nearer filling this b.ll than Hon. David S. Reid. A Voice from tnilforri. m tlie ireenfboro Patriot. COl'NTY C'ONUENTlON.

D. J. Fitzhugh aud his friends have present ed documents which entirely exculpate him from the charges of aricu, tbeft, perjury and blackmailing, but his uu fortuuate letter still remains, and will be fatal unless a feeling that the treachery which prompted lbs publi cation should uuder no circumstances be successful saves Fitzhcgh. It is known that that gentleman could have prevented its publication for a consid eration. Riddle has published three columns iu the Republican. They contain cumulative evidence that Blaine was iu Joe Stewart's office strong pre sumptive evidence that tbe late Mr. Knowlton, Riddle's son-in-law, wit nessed tbe transfer of bonds from Stewart to Blaine at the request of Stewart. Blaine has been inexact in the details of bis explanation. Tne Senate, on motion of West of Louisiana, passed the House bill ap propriating 89,000 to pay the expanses of the sp cial commit) appointed to investigate federal offices in Louisiana.

Bobbins swore that he heard from some one that Blaine would be involved by the investigation; had spoKeuto Mr. Har rison as reported, aud on that account the motion to investigate had been withdrawn and bad never Leen made. He had since been satisfied that Blaine had been wrongfully suspected. CjI. Scott testified th s evening, prefacing his remarks with the statement thnt the transaction was equitable and Blaiue had nothing to do with it. Major Seelye was before Gen. Gib son's committee to investigate the fed eral offices iu Sew Orb.aus aud refused to testify regarding the pay rolls in the custom house, as he would . criminate himself. A resolution was theu adopt ed by the committee directing the chairman to apply to the A.foruey Genera! for a paper like that issued in the cas of Whitley in the safe burg lary investigation. Seelye testified freely on other matters. Amoug other things he testified that there was a de falcation of $68,000 in the N-iw Orleans post office during Lowell's administra tion. Lowell, his deputy ud cashier were arrested and held in S10.000 each but not prosecuted. L)Well turned over to his bondsmen about $20,000 worth of property, which, however, was afterwards returned to him. The defalcation was fl oal'y compromised for $7,000. Morey told witness that the easiest way to settle the matter was' to steal the bond and requested wit ness to do it. Witness stated that there were ten bondsmen wuo were assessed $2 000 each to secure th" compromise. Seelye testifi s that Jonett, then commissioner of tbe cir cuit court, gave him a warrant in Alorey's district against twenty men. Morey erased the names of all but four, whom he instructed Seelye to take to Monroe and keep in jail until after the election. A warrant was also given Seelye for the arrest of Isaac Newton Glover, whom by Mor.ey's verbal instructions, given Seelye in the presence of Jonett, be was to tase into tbe woods and kill. Glover was cot arrested, because the writ of habeas corpus reqnired Seelye to remain with the other prisoners, which writ he did not obey. Seelye says he did not intend to kill Glover, but left Morey under" tbe impression that 1 he would do it. The infantry and cavalry in the district moved by Morey direction. ' He fur-r nished a list of appointments and or dered troops' to be at such poiots the day before he spoke, as be was afraid to go without such guard. Seelye sold to Morey his orders and telegrams lor $200 each, two of which were paid, two axe over due and oae not yet matured, so lt Jl I Seelye retained copies. The testimony was scattering, but witness chums he has memoranda by which he can, tell perfectly connected stories- with the times, places, names aud all details. Judge Nelson appeared for Morey, who was also present and wished the application for a safe guard postponed until after they had cross-examined Seelye. Morey stated that the evi dence given showed that he or Seelye should go 1 3 the penitentiary; that the case should be decided by the courts and if Seelye secured a safeguard, Morey would be without means of proving him infamous. Morey will be heard to-morrow. The committee re scinded the resolution to leave for New Orleans to-morrow. Maj. Seelye was special agent of the Post Office De partment at Nw Orlans and after wards deputy United States marshal. VIRGINIA. Richmond. May 15 Night In the Southern Baptist Convention to-day Prof. N. K. Davis of the University of Virginia presented a report on tho Italian mission. The report congrat ulates the convention on the hopeful condition of the mission. There are besides tbe church at Rome eight stations at other points. The report woula have the convention instruct the board of foreicn affira o.i two points: first, there must be no curtail ment of the work of the board but an enlargement aa far as possible; second, means should be taken at once to double some cbapel fund by earnest efforts within aud without the bounds of the convention. The report ap proves of the wisdom of the board in the management of the fund but would urge that the time has arrived when the f uud should be completed and the chapel built. Rev. Dr. Sampson gave an inter esting account of the Italian mission. This report was adopted. Mr. William Thayer of Charleston, S. C, from the committee on report of the treasurer of Ihe convention re ported that the account is properly audited and 57,000 properly dis bursed. FOREIGN. London, May 16-Noon The ex citement is daily increasing in Syria. Two English men-of-war have arrived at Jaffa, three at Beyroul and one English and one French at Latakia. A gale is reported at Medaira which wrecked several vessels, including two from Bangor, Me. The crew3 were all saved. The Times, reviewing the proceed ings at the conference, says: "The an nouncement of a complete arrangement between the three irrperial powers is satisfactory, but as it appears that all the plans of positive action are re jected and that the powers ara about to tender good advice to tbe Sultan and the insurgents, we think it would be premature to thank tbe Chanoellors for a settlement of the Eastern ques tion. " . A boat belonging to the schooner Santiago, four weeks over : due, ' has been picked up near Gloucester, Mass. The vessel, which was new, carrying a crew of twelve men, is supposed to be lost. An i:ntliui&kt In Hnrrlnf. A couple from the country came to the city yesterday, procured a license and were married iu due form. - They left on the afternoon train for home. They attracted the attention of every passenger by their lavish display of affection. The yauLg man kept his arm tight around the bride's waist, as if he was afraid she would vanish be fore he knew it, and she didn't seem to care if he hujged her right along for half a day. She was so terribly homely that everybody wondered how ho could love ber, and by aud by he seemed to think that an explanation would be in order. He borrowed a chew of tobacco of a man near tbe door, and remarked: ."I'm going to hug that girl all the way home, though I kno w she isn't purty." "I wouldn't" briefly replied tbe man. "And that's where you'd fool yourself," continued the young man. "Wheu I'm hugging a hundred acres of clean, nice land, with forty head of stock on it, 1 qau make the homeliest girl in the country look like an angel to me." Augusta Chronicle. Pres Association.

The National Democratic Committee, to whom is delegated the power of fixing the time and place of holding the National Democratic Convention of 1870, have ap. pointed Tuesday, the twenty-seventh day of June next, noon, as the time, ? nd selected St. Louis as the place of holding such Con vention. Each State will be entitled to a represen tation equal to double the number of its Senators and Representatives in the Con gress ot the United States; and the Terri tory of Colorado, whose admission iu July as a State will give it a vote in the next Electoral College, is also invited to semi delegates to the Convention. Democratic, Conservative and other citi zens of the United States, irrespective of past political associations, desiring to co operate with tlie Democratic party in its present efforts and objects, are cordially in vited to join in sendinr delegates to the National Convention. Co-operation is de sired from all persons who would change an administration that has sutlered tin? public credit to become and remain inferior to other aud less favoied nations; has per mitted commerce to be taken away by foreign powers; has stilled trade hy unjust, unequal and pernicious legislation; has im posed unusual taxation and rendered ;l most burdensome; has cianged growini; prosperity to widespread sutV,.'iir:g anc waut; has squandered the public moneys recklessly and defiantly, and shauielessh used the power that should have been swift to punish crime, to protect it. For these and other reasons the nation. Democratic party deem the public danuw imminent, and earnestly desirous of seem ing to our country the blessing of an eco nomical, pure and free government, coi dially invite the co-operation of their fellow citizens in the etl'ort to attain this object.
