It is expected that the President of the United States will be present and make the formal declara tion that the Exhibition is closed. It has not yet been decided whether the Centennial authorities, with the in vited guests, will proceed in a body to Machinery Hall, there stop the great engine at the appointed hour, and then proceed to the ma n stand, or whether the engine will be stoppeed by a telegraphic signal from the stand during the exercises. An organization is being perfected by which facilities will be afforded to exhibitors, both foreign and American to continue the exhibition of their goods in the Main Building after the close of the Exhibition, that building having been purchased from the Cen tennial Board of Finance for the pur pose of creal ing a permanent exhibition . The Pennsylvania - Museum and School of Industrial Art, to be estab lished in Memorial Hall, will probably be closely patterned after the South Kensington Museum of London. The original subscription for this institution 570,000, of which fully $20,000 have already been expended Many objects of interest have been voluntarily do nated to the Museum, the contributions being most liberal in the Japanese, Ch inese, Spanish, Egyptian and Swed ish departments. Among the mure recent donations are a large number of piaster casts taken from the Alhambra in Spain, and presented by Count Do nadio, and 10l frames of Flicteiie ivory, for educational drawings, pre sented by (he Duke of Richmond and Gordon. The museum proper will not be opened until the 10th of May, 1877, but arrangements are now being made for depositing the objects secured, and opening a school of industrial art early I his winter. Anna Dickenson’s Marriage.— The peculiar misfortune of a woman thus gifted is that she is separated by her genius from general society. This is a penalty which all such persons feel keenly. f l here are a few men who are sufficiently her equals in talent to com mand her respect. r J hen as for love matters it may be asked who is there that would fall in love with such u lioness? Let none envy that degree of talent which must cause perpetual desolation. If Miss Dickinson ever marries, it must be the actuf condescen sion. Women ot talent, when they take a husband, must view him from the “weaker vessel.” Mrs Sin ouniey was in her day a noted poet, but who ever heard of Sigourney? He was merely a carpet-dealer, un known beyond the limits ot the trade. Jenny Lina threw herself away upon an inferior fellow whose name ehe has since been compelled to wear, and Mrs. Stowe has always ranked abive her excellent husband, the professor. And Mrs Siddons. too, that famous tra gedienne. ihere must have been a Mr. Siddons. but though he was a clever player, he was lost in the gran deur of his wife. Nobody ever heard of Siddons except as a small piece of masculinity attached to a wonderful woman. Troy ( N. Y. ) Tim es. It is hard to stand by a principle when that principle isn’t in style. Now there is Mrs. Dr. Mary "Walker. She commenced by putting on a full suit of gentleman's black, But now what do she do? She wears a coat and vest and trowsers, of course—but what a coat and vest and trowsers. Coat trimmed with fur, fastened with smoked-pearl buttons, a broad piece of ribbon pinned between the shoulders, the back buttons sawed off and the skirts themselves dangling with mink tur tails. And her vest: Made of blue velvet, shirred and knife pleated and set all over with rows of ball fringe. And her trowsers: Constructed with feather trimmings down the side, cut bias and made full a tergo , and set off at the bottom with frilled white cuffs. Neither the State nor the Navy De partment has recent information con cerning the United States steamer Franklin, but it is supposed that she will be heard from some time this week. While there is no doubt Tweed, the prisoner on board, will be delivered to New York State authorities immediate ly on his arrival, it is not probable that official correspondence on the subject will be published before a meeting of Congress. When the Spanish Govern ment informed tint of the United States of Tweed’s anest, and its readi ness to surrender hiiq in accordance with the wishes of our government, the American legation was instructed to conduct the arrangements to that end. So well has the Centennial Exhibit ion been managed pecunarily that tWe is now littK donbt but that the surplus will be now less than one and a halt millions. The Beecher Scandal. New York, November 2. —The Congregational Association of. New \ork and Brooklyn has issued to the public a statement of its action in gard to the charges against the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher’s morals, which were brought before the Advisory Council Commission. The- Committee appointed last Winter to co-operate in bringing evidence before that commis sion report that up to this day, after mure than six months’ opportunity to speak, and most urgent and public en treaty that every one would speak who had anything to say against him, no one had seen fit to respond; no one had undertaken to make either before the association, oi before the commis sion, the slightest responsible charge against the moral character of the Rev Lenry Ward Beecher. The report of the committee was adopted, and the following preamble and resolutions were pasaed: Where as, The report of the said commit tee indicates that there is no substantial ground for believing in the guilt of Mr. Beecher; be it therefore Resolved, That we do, therefore, as an as sociation, regard onr brother as worthy of our confidence and love, and express to him our sympathy in the severe trial through which he has passed. Europe. There is a lull in the war between Turkey and Servia w.iich has been in augurated by the signing of a two months’ armistice between the bellig erents. The effect will be a temporary cessation of hostilities, during which efforts will be made by the Great Pow ers, or some of them, to negotiate a permanent peace The news that the armistice had been agreed upon had had the effect, also, to produce a panic in the cloth and yarn trade in Liver pool and Manchester, England. The- Fust says: ‘‘Yesterday was the most exciting day the cotton market has experienced fox years, and the enormous sale has thrown the business altogether out of gear. Yarn prices are reduced all round. There are large offers at about Id advance, but they are mostly declined, so that little business results. The exports of yarns are more active, and show, in most cases, a large advance. Business in cloth is at a stand-still Buyers do not follow the upward movement eager ly, and sellers dare not go on even at the recent fullest quotations without further instruction from their princi pals.’’ The Courier says: “For some days the Turkey-lServian armistice which is now announced, Las been confidently expected, and the Manchester market lor goods and yarns, as our cotton market, has been perceptibly regaining in rone. Only upon one occasion, upon'the eve of the American civil war, have sales reached such a figure as was announced yester day, and at Manchester with the ad vancing prices business was active and transactions large.” The Grain Yield.—Washington D C , Nov. 2. —-The returns of the Agricultural Department for October indicate a reduction in the yield of the wheat crop of nearly one-sixth Every section ot the Union indicates a re duced product, except the Middle Slates which increased about 2 per cent. The New England States lell off 4 per cent, the South Atlantic States 2 per cent, the Gulf States 27 per cent., the Southern inland States 8 per cent, the States north of the Ohio river 14 per cent., the States west of the Mississippi River 27 per cent, the Pacific States nearly 2 per cent. These figures point to a yield of about 245,000.000 bushels. The rye crop of 187 G is reported 4 per cent, less than that of 1875, but in quality it averages somewhat above its predecessor. The oat crop of 1876 shows a falling off of 27 per cent, compared with its predecessor. Every section of the Union is deficient. Buckwheat is fully an average. The barley is 9 per cent, less than the average. Silk Culture in Louisiana.— Mr. Roquet, of New Orleans, has con tributed much to the increased silk production of Sicily. He has in St. Tammany parish an establishment where for several years he has raised large quantities of silk worms of the finest species. He does not make any silk, because he found it more profita ble to ship his worms’ eggs to Messina and soil them; his income is above $3,000 every year from this source. The eggs produced in Louisiana were found to be the best produced any where, and Mr. Roqnet has been com plimented by our own Agricultural Bureau and by the Italian authorities for his success in raising sound and healthy worms, yet few of our citizens ever heard of Mr. Roquet or his enter prise, and scarcely any know how easy it is for one or two lad'cs and their children to ra- without much trouble a crop indoors worth SB,OU‘) a year. Ihe Now Coal Combinations, The New York Journal of Com merce has every reason to believe thai there will be uo new coal combinations arid res its reasons; ‘Tue general scale of prices now in dicates a large advance from the bot tom rates of the great combination sale of August, and it is not thought like*} that they will soon recede to that minimum point for the different grades again. The prices which have been paid at the recent auction sales arc, on the whole, satisfactory. The sales have undoubtedly been conducted nth fairness, and the coal has brought just what it is worth to the consumers and no more, while the companies have been rewarded by the result. Under these circumstances, it would be a great mistake tot the companies to get up another ring to force prices higher No one of those who adhered to the ring agreements formerly made as much money then ns they are making now. 3he prfic3 all fell. it turned cut to those who evaded the compact while nominally hound by it. This want of mutual confidence and fidelity—aside from all other reasons—will of itself serve to prevent the revival of the coal combination. If members will not be fettered by their agreements before, they will not now that they have tasted and realized the advantages of liberty in trade. Tfee Lick-Estate Contest. The natural ben (0 the vast Lick es tate in California, Mr. John H. Lick, has changed bis mind. He said thtt he would not contest his father's trust deed, by which so many beneficiarus had been endowed on the Pacific coatt, but here we see him. thus early alter the millionaire s death, scouring the com t-room borders in San Franc sco, hand to hand with a string of lawyers, with the one aim oi disrupting that same trust. The sight of five or eight millions of dollars was too much lor his mind’s weak eyes, and he has rushed out from his humble work ia old Pennsylvania, filled with a mama to grasp it ail instead the handsome part left him by his deceased ancestor. The grounds upon which John H. Lick will contest the trust deed in question, are, insanity on the part of • bo testator and undue influence on the part of the trustees to the fund. In establishing these claims a long course of litigation will follow, and, if won, the grand schemes of the eccentric old Californian, who now lies buried, will be entirely frustrated and left in their present unfinished state. In defense of the fund the trustees will demand that John H. Lick estab lish his claim to the heirship of the deceased, he being an illegitimate son, since the elder Lick was never mar ried. It is thought that it will be hard for the contestant to prove his re lationship, as the alleged father's con duct has never been regarded suffic iently flagrant in its nature to admit of the supposition advanced try the claim ant, without proof However the matter may turn, it seems certain that an old story is to be repeated. A fight over a deed; years o' litigation; everything bad advanced a.ainst the character of the dead; friendships broken up; hates engen dered, and at last the lawyers on both sides seen marching off in company with the fortune divided between them. On Carrying Deadly Weapons. From a sound article in the Omaha (Neb.) Republican , on the crime of carrying concealed weapons, is called the following extract, touching upon fhe late cruel and tragic murder ia Chicago: “What a kindness to Sullivan, bad .the law said with compelling force. ‘You shall carry no deadly weapons about your person. 7 What a mercy to poor Hanford, sent in a moment out of life, with not a day for reflection, not one moment for repentance. •‘Here, too, is a lesson and a warning for the best of men. No man, howev* er sane his head, however self-cootroll ing his will, however just, humane and manly his heart, no man knows when (as one has said with startling effect) ‘God may take His hand off from him, 7 and when blind and self willed passions of whose existence he never dreamed, may impel him ir-esistably to do the worst in his power against some fellow man. “Better ‘take the chances 7 all through life of receiving personal in jury unjustly than run the risk of going down to the grave with a broth er 7 s blood on your hand. When the Rhode Island militia par aded the other day you might hear tht* officers thunder forth the*r commands: “Guido right; steady, men; don’t push 1 anv one over into Connecticut!”— 1 Y. Com .
