TUB After The formal opening of the Centennial Ex 1 , iiniion is something like the traditional " f) i" on Sunday morning to give the Janie notice to be ready for church an hour f, The difference Is that the Centennial warnin' 1 ' bell consists In the gr andest parade of dignitaries and people, aud exercises that America and the rest of tl e world can m induced to execute at the p ce of meet Tliis has been done with great excite . and agony, anil all have now gone „ ml e strain, very muddy and weary, to get ready for the Exhibition, and to give the inhibition itself time to get ready. To lie sure there are numbers of those ad ralrulile people who go to church half an hour before the time, already sitting on ex 1 , 11 , 1 , jon, in their Sunday heist, and making oi themselves quite a respectable show, if they were only not up to their eyes in the rubbish nml confusion of the incorrigibly late and unready. Of course, too, there a c v ot people there to see them and wri.c about them. In fact, the overstir io-it y of the public, and enterprise of tl:e -s lul l already wearied us with letters on ihe Exhibition, before it bad even a par tial existence. Wliat is the use or fun of , 11 1 bis !

Nevertheless, the people—who always, as a sight, eclipse the greatest sights they can ■red to sec—undeniably mode the itself a greater exhibition than will Although their be gal opetmi: be seen in any other form, j. 'ual count has been exaggerated from the true figure, ot about 100,000, to more than double* that number, there really is not. ilill'crcnco to poor human senses, b tween the two ligures, as facts. At either, the spectacle Is simply stunning, and after s untied what more ean another you me hundred thousand men do to you? But wliat can 1 say of the occasion that, lias not already been said and read by every body it. almost, seems tome that Vidi's oiriip.ii ion's gone—or suspended during the Exhibition. I saw a great task before me. but |o,presto! a frantically eager host, sweeps ii away before my eyes, as the grasshoppers s a farmer's yet succulent grain. You don't want a summary of the important and therefore stale and hackneyed facts, from me: and 1 lie length of such necessary die s » in every newspaper leaves little spare h Impressions, proper to a letter, that i he journalism of the Exhibition is such an immense thing, that it. lias got to be lie:;vv and practical, a solid world. If you nondize Its limitless nebula will just fill and be lost in space. We can chat a little here, as everybody dors in private, over the characteristics ot the seem —possibly hit on a point or two not already universally spoken of. The universal praise of the work of the mana gers, and iis wonderful success, is not more generous ilian just, ami if I coniine my own lew words to criticism it is only because that pan alone is behind hand. The main fault was in a rigidity rule out of all pro pin inn to tlie physical force for supporting it. Where t here was no need of it the rule was too rigid but where it was most wauled it proved loo weak. For instance, it was quire as easy a* unnecessary, to outrage pa.lent people who had toiled lor hours to '.lieir:urns at, the lurn stiles, by refusing inch full and exact payments because not siib-il i v i'leil into hall dollars, and condemn ing i linn tn.< second and a third equally tedious delay wiih that they had just en dured, or ,o the alternative of paying a if twem.y per cent, to the peripa ic money changers. It was also easy for the military line be tween die Main and Machinery Hall, to ho d that passage agaiii6t the peaceable folk,of whom some tea thousand had con fldhiglj paid their half-dollar at the South cm ranees only to he penned like cattle be tween l hose hails and the euclosuies, for two hoi mui mortal hours, while ail they had ionic to see was going on without them. A grain of common sense or In inanity somewhere would have opened i tcinnorary passage to the general ground forihcss iinpiisoned people, without caus ing the slightest difficulty in again closing and guarding it for the official procession, but wlii'n the official procession came and the real need of firmness at that point bo-an, these stubborn lines were but wisps °f s raw oelore an exei.ed crowd. The ofli— via 1 procession was knocked Into a cocked, h;e or rather out of its cocked bats, and bs triumphant march wus turned into a melee ami a rout. Again, the most properly privileged and riant personages were stupidly tbiUBt hack and battled of tliclr rignis and digni ties, because It was physically easy for a bayoneted lout to cope with gentlemen, one m a lime; while t housands of wilful usurp fr* forced their way where they had no business to lie. The two seas of humanity that pressed towards meeting, on either side of the cer unoLial stand, were each restrained by a rnpa that bulged and bent, farther and far ther, like a dam yielding to a mightily gravitating mass of water, and but for a timely but accidental re-inforcemcnt from tlie President's body-guard, the feeble force at that critical point would have been over whelmed, with tlie whole official body and paraphernalia, like Pliaroli's host in tlie Bed Sea. And this lucky success, too, was only gained by cruel violence, which would nor have become necessary if the strength expanded in tyrauh.ing over harmless peo ple wlio had been massed betimes in firm 'ifficl inertia where the pressure of excited crowds required it. All tills is not to censure tho manage ment. It. i* easy, afterwards, to show wliat might have been better. Yet it is none the Ichs desirable to ilo so In order that the profit of experience may be reaped. liar the lighter touches and personal The fact is prelum til 4 : m; " in at 85 81 * Mlsiinderslnudlnir to be Corrected It is requested hy General Hawley, of tlie | oiled Stales Commission, and Mr. John 'Vi'ishof the Board of Finance, that it lie fail'll that tlie assertion which was circula te I very extensively that any kind af money ' v,|i ' li did not require, change to lie made won Id 1,0 received at the gates of the Kxlii. bltioii buildings, he corrected.
