• I word*, the leading points of the letter,
I He first touches upon the question of .
I retrenchment and reform in the admin- V

travagance and wastefulnoss that have .
made necessary the enormous taxation
by which the country is depressed, and
is I P°* n f'og to the struggle in the House I r

such this matter also, and proposes an mend- "
as ment to tbe Constitution by which the re

Then comes tfie chief feature of his
a message—an elaborate discussion of the Jj°
financial question in its various aspects.
1 It is not only comprehensive and lucid,
but bristles with practical suggestions
for the establishment of practical finan
cial reforms. He holds that resumption m
is not difficult, shows tbe methods and
means of resumption, indicates the time meD
* resumption, and points out tbe
preparations that ought to bo made for
of resumption. -The proper time for re- a ^'

On the whole, and in every respect,
Tilden's letter of acceptance is à
I do « u . ment worthy of a genuine reformer,
and invigorating to the cause of reform
It will increase public respect for bis
statesmanship and public confidence in
his purposes, and will greatly strength
en his prospects as the Reform Demo
cratic candidate for the Presidency.
In respect to Gov. Hendricks letter,
we have but time to
, . . , 8a y, after a hasty
perusal of it, that it puts an end to the
absurd stories tbat have been circulated
about irreconcilable differences of opin
ion between him and Mr. Tilden. Il
sustains the principal positions of Til
den, and leads na to believe that they
are thoroughly in co-operation respect
ing all the great measures of public
policy now before tbe country.
GOVBRNOR HENDRICKS' LETTER.
The letter of Gov. Hendricks is not
so long as Gov. Tilden'a, bat is replete
with good sense and wiae statesmanship.
The writer formally accepta tbe nomi
nation for Vice-President and expresses
his hearty and perfect endorsement of
the principles of the St Louis platform.
He severely arraigns the administration
for its abuse of
power and, having
and pointed out clearly the necessity for re

The space opposite the Orange Free
State, occupied by Peru, would be quite
interesting if their mummies did
occupy the centre of the enclosure.
These mummies, of which there are sev
eral, are disgusting to look upon, some
with grinning jaws, others witb the
mouth filled with dirty cotton aod se
cured with a flat piece of pearl which is
held in place by a string around tbe
head; one l noticed had a small spoon
thrust tbrongh the cotton, for what pur
pose I do not know. There is also a
collection of skulls on top of the cabinet
which contains tbe mummies. Some
are of the Peruvian Indians, others of
the gentry. Wire-work is shown to

The Argentine Republic has a splen
did display of saddles and leather, some
of the saddles are magnificent, one in
particular for a lady, covered with blue
velvet, seemed to be universally ad
mired Some statuary is seen here clad
in the costumes of the nation. Among
tlie rest of the adornments was a belt of
silver ooiD about the size of a dollar,
Among tho singular covers seen here,
werc some made,of feathers aod intend
ed for tablets ; they were very beautiful
but rather awkward for table covers,
A beautiful medallion necklace of gold
attracted much attention. A magnifi
cent Stole and Albe of heavy white silk,
embroidered with gold (I don't think
could be excelled even in the Egyptian
department) are shown by this Repub
lie. Th'e needlework, as in all foreign
countries, is very fine. Shawls, conn
terpanes, herbs, leather aod soap are
exhibited in great variety. A tin wash
stand had quite a crowd around it, on
account of the number of apartments to
it; in front a drawer for the basin,
soap dish, &c ., underneath was a com
plete tea service, napkin rings included;
at one side the whole pbaraphernalia for
a gentleman s toilet; the other side a
kind of sideboard filled with various
shaped tin boxes. It would be a perfect
treasure to some bachelor editor, doctor
or law y er but he would bave to follow
the law of its internal arrangement, and
keep everything in its place or he would*'abuses
have room for nothing. Some zephyr
raised work is exhibited, but it has been
excelled with ease by your neighbor
Mrs. William Flintham, in her "Ele
phant" afghan some time ago. I hope
the milliners of Middletown will see the
exhibit of bonnets and ladies' hats. If
they (tbe bonnets) don't excel every
thing in tbat line for hideousness, then
I know nothing about it. One bad at
least forty pounds of grapes on it, and
with the other trimmings made quite a
gorgeous affair. An old loom, with
some coarse woolen goods in course of
weaving, was standing in a corner.—
From its appearance I should judge it
to be several hundred years old.

WOOD FOR REFLECTION.
Tilden has been Governor of Hew
York for two years, and In that time be
has reduced tbe expenditures of tbat
State from $15,000,000 to 8,000,000.
Make him President, and he will eut
down the public expenditures of the
government to what they were before
the war. when we bad an honest gov
ernment. Then they were $65,000,
000 per annum ; now they are 185,
000,000, besides the public debt Then
the number of office holders was 44,
928, now the number has been swelled
to 94,119, more than double the former
number, and this army of office holders
is eating out the substance of tbe peo
pie. In 1868 the Indians cost $3,998,
353,59 ; in 1875, they cost $8,384,
656,82;
cost eight years ago
department of tbe public service, the
expenditures have been largely in
creased. Is this state of things to eon
tinue ? Will the people decide for
reform or will they not ? The Demo
orats propose to reduce the number of
office holders and cut down the
penses. The present Democratic House
of Representatives bas saved to tbe peo
pie about $40,000,000, but theRepub
lican Senate has resisted this saving at
every step of its progress, and threat
ened to bring tbe government to a stand
still because it could not get the ex
travagant appropriations of formeryears.
Can any reasonable man longer doubt
which is the reform party, or which of
the two parties is most deserving the
public support and public confidence ?
These are facts from the record whioh
canhot be denied ; facts which come
home to tbe sober reflection of every
man. Let the people ponder over
them, in the light of reason and corn
mon sense, and act for their own best
interests. Tbeir interests are tbe in
terests of tbe country ; the nation is
but the aggregate of individuals The

3d— The Patent movable or sliding Fulcrum

any other drill.

the bearings are all on the outer and inner

Suffice it to say, our Drill is just what is
