VTEi INXIJAI- EXHIBITION. Fourth Day. and to-day was larger than at any Floral Hall ; did also the The attendance at the Fair Grounds in creases from day to day as the exhibition j >r< igress time since its commencement, attracted a good many visitors, Agricultural, Stock, Mineral and other depart ments. The display of vegetables and cer eals in the Agricultural Department,although not so large as that of the Fifth Annual Ex hibition, is nevertheless very good and gives 'nuine satisfaction. the daces yesterday. During the afternoon of yesterday two : ices came off which attracted a large crowd ted spectators. The first, which 'clock, was a running race, I three in five, for thorough ly be owned and kept in Mon 'ur-- from October 1st, 1875, $1,500; $1,000 to first horse th mteres (Mine off at 3 > mile heats, be bred stallions, tuna for two y for a purse of and >500 to second horse.

In the pools it. was "Time" against Treasure Box—Time having the preference. Considerable money changed hands on the result, the betting be ing about even. It is a good horse that will make a mile heat in 1:40, and we believe it has novel - been made but once in this Terri tory. Midnight Belle made, at the Fashion course, three years ago, a mile heat in 1:40, which has not been repeated since. At 4 o'clock p. m. the pacing race came off. Four horses were entered—Dexter, New York Johnny, Snoozer and Rocker. Dexter was the favorite in the pools, and in the betting nearly two to one. The race was for a purse of $150; $100 to the first horse and $50 to the second, best two heats in three. The horses got a good start, New York John ny taking the lead, Dexter second. Dexter broke twice during the first heat while John ny kept light along without a break and came home two length ahead. Snoozer and Rock er were distanced. The .second heat was also handsomely won by New York Johnny, pass ing under the score about the same distance ahead of Dexter as in the first heat. Time 2:57. Firth Day. The managers of the Sixth Annual Exhi bilion of the M. A., M. & M. Association were fortunate in designating such a favora bit* time for holding the Fair. Thus far the weather lias been warm and pleasant, and Is very likely to remain so for some days to come. As to the attendance, we can safely say that it has been larger than at any prc vious exhibition since 1871. To-morrow is the last day of the Fair, and as the great trotting race comes off then, we may look for an immense crowd. The shooting match for flic Creed moor Rifle, between the Helena and Deer Lodge teams also takes place to-mor moiTow, and will excite much interest. The Deer Lodge team consists of Granville Stuart, Thomas Stuart, Reese Andersen, Henry Vali ton and Harvey McKinstry. The members of the Helena team are S. T. Hauser, D. A. Fimverree, Homer llewins and Wm. B.Judd. THE HACKS YESTERDAY. The six hundred yard dash, for special pre mium of $100, offered by Jno. McCormick, came off at J o'clock. Six entries were made —Norma, Buckskin, Greenwich, Dennis, Hod Fox and Mary. Norma was first choice in the pools, Greenwich second and Buck skin third. The other horses also had good backing. The race was a pretty one, and closely contested. It was won by Buckskin by about half a length, Greenwich second, ami Norma third, with the others close up. 1 hne, :]2 seconds. 1 be mile heat race, best two in three, for d purse of $;;o0, came off at 4 o'clock.

CmcAGo, September 29.—A Washington special says the officials at the Indian Depart ment are inclined to think the Commissioners sent to negotiate for the purchase of the Black Hills, are in danger. The constant re ports now of the bad temper and irritability of the Sioux lead those best acquainted with their character to expect some treachery, or some outbreak directed towards the Commis sioners. The manner of dealing with the Sioux is in a great measure responsible for this feeling. The peace policy is construed as only timidity bn the part of the Govern ment, while the swindling of agents has given the Indians a poor opinion of the good faith of the whites. In view of the present disturb ed state of feeling, additional troops will be ordered to the vicinity of Red Cloud Agency. The present force consists of three compan ies of cavalry and four of infantry, enough to irritate the Indians without impressing them in a restrictive way. The feeling of uncertainty as to the safety of the Commis sion has taken such definite shape that it may be expected that they will be temporarily recalled from the place where they are at present in such danger of losing their scalps. The Eclipse of the Sun. 3Ianche8TER, (N. Y.) September 59.— The sky was overcast this morning, and there was a slight rain fall. The scientists had made very accurate preparations to take ob- servations and secure photographs of the various phases of the eclipse of the sun, but they were only able to discern the shadowy outline of the ring as it approached and pass- ed over. Althongh science gains but little, enough was seen to verify almost to a second the predictions of the astronomers. --^ n m --- New York's Centennial Subscription. New York, September 2J.—Ex-Governor Bigler reports the Centennial collections in this city to date at $250,000. a en Massachusetts Republican State Conven tion. Worcester, September 29.—The Repub lican State Convention met at half-past 11 o'clock, and was called to order by W. W. Clapp, of the Boston Journal, Chairman of the State Central Committee. The usual committees were appointed, and Hon. Henry Wilson was chosen President. On taking the chair, Wilson made a political reform and hard money speech. The following is his reference to finances : "In the stress of w r ar, when creditors and armies were unpaid, the Government issued its promises to pay and make them legal tenders. When tLat enactment was made the government in good faith intended that these notes should be redeemed in gold, or in interest-bearing bonds. But, ten years have passed, and these promises to pay still re main unfulfilled. Greenbacks have indeed largely appreciated, and we are justly proud of the credit of the nation in the markets of the world. But we do not and we cannot as Americans take pride in the singular fact that a stray note from an unknown bank in one of the British provinces can be sold in State street for a premium of more than 12 per cent, over one of our legal tender notes, with all the wealth of forty millions of people be hind it. The plighted faith of the nation, the honor of the government, the enduring inter ests of the people, of the rich and of the poor, of capital and labor, all demand that the gov ernment, by wise and prudent legislation and administration, should at the earliest practi cable period make its notes equal and con vertible into gold." The first ballot for candidate for Governor resulted as follows : Rice, 398 ; Loring, 358 ; Adams, 236. Railroad Accident. Cincinnati, September 29.—The Peoria express on the Hamilton & Dayton railroad, leaving here at 7 p. m. yesterday, was run into by a freight train at Hamilton, Ohio, demolishing a sleeping car. John Schuler w r as killed and three others were fatally in jured. Further advices from the railroad accident at Hamilton state that the only persons injur- ed were three men, Schuler, Andy Wertz and Henry Deemer, who were stealing a ride on the platform of the sleeping-car, when the freight train struck it. Wertz was killed in- stantly, Schuler died shortly after, and Dee- mer was still living but there are no hopes of his recovery. ---— -1 ur t ►* --- Fire. St. Louis, September 29.—Holmes & Co.'s lumber yard, on 16th street, as also the plan ing mill and other property in the vicinity, were burned this evening. Loss, $42,000; insurance, light. Capsized and Drowned. Glencoe, (L. I.) September 29,—Last night a boat with the Rev. Dr. Geo. B. Pro teus, late pastor of All Soul's Church, Brook lyn, Lewis BenjamiD, and three others, was capsized and the two former drowned. ENGLAND. London, September 29.—The damage done to crops by the floods is reported to be enor mous in Lanford, Kerry and Tipperary in Ireland. At Cork the floods have subsided, but it is believed several persons were drown ed. The Journal de St. Petersburg says that Turkey herself, and the Grand Vizier espe cially, fully admit the necessity for reforms, and have decided to introduce them through out the empire, for all nationalities. For this reason foreign cabinets should abstain from ostensible diplomatic pressure, and confine their efforts to the pacification of the insur rection and the examination of suitable insti tutions for the present crisis, and thus be the means of effecting the first improvement of the condition of the East. Turkey intends to establish four frontier camps at Nisch, Negotin, Sevornik and the mouth of the river Drina. A special to the Morning Standard an nounces that 29 members of the Skuptschina of Servia have resigned their seats. ^ I im I — TURKEY. Belgrade, September 29. —It is reported that the Sublime Porte has notified Servia that it is about to occupy the island of Little Redoubt, iu the river Drina, which is claimed by Servia. The Servian government opposes the project. It is unofficially announced that the Servian troops on the frontier near V isch have received reinforcements in that neigh borhood. FRANCfc. Paris, September 28.—31. Laboulaye has sent to the journals an appeal in regard to the statue proposed to be erected on an island in Long Island Sound. He shows how import ant are the relations between France and the United States, and urges Frenchmen to prove that the country of Lafayette has not forgot ten her traditions. The monument is to be a colossal statue of Liberty represented as enlightening the world. GREECE. Athens, September 29.— The British lega tion here ha9 informed the Greek govern ment that the Prince of Wales will leave Italy for India October 16, and will visit Athens en route. The government has accordingly appointed a commission to make suitable pre parations for bis reception.
