On landing in Liverpool I sent you a brief desenption of mv voyage across tbe Atlantic, promising to write again from Hamburg and Copenhagen. I have been obliged to disappoint you in that respect for upon my arrival at Hamburg a dozen brothers and almost an equal number of sisters, and I was almost going to say fathers and mothers, were on the dock to meet me. I was captured and did not bave a moment's peace until I cot away from j them and found myself in Paris. I am late in the field, but shall make up for time lost. Among the most instructive developments of modern civilization are tbe international ex-1 bibitions which, commencing in London in ; 1851, under the inspiration and auspices of tbe late sagacious and public spirited Princo Albert, have been succeeded by more extended j J j and comprehensive ones, closing with our own glorious Centennial. The French Exposition of 1S73 embraces in its scope the productions and results of every industry, art, and science' as well as their processes and methods of operation. This is done not merely for pur poses of competition and in tbe distribution of prizes, but aleo and more especially, with the object of pasaing in review, under the scrutiny of tbe modt accomplished experts and men of science, all of the fruits of the skill, industry, and exact condition an J tbe comparative merits or defects of the industrial development of each nation and of each description of article or process could be Bet forth. Tbe progresi which such examination indicates of the ex- j hibits; and to describe tbe highest standards of excellence, is rhy aim while in Pans. From the commencement of the industrial epoch whicla dates from the London Exhibition of 1851 the profound t-ignificance and value of such exhibitions as this bave been realized by the people and government of civilized nations. Ibeir beneikient influences are many and widespread; they advance human knowledge in all directions. Through the universal lan guage of the products cf labor the artisans of ail countries bold communication; ancient prejudices are broken down; are fraternized; generous rivalries in the peaceful fields of industry are excited ; the tendencies to war are lessened; and a better understanding between labor and capital is fostered. It is gratifying to note tnat these great exhibitions are planned and executed in tbe interests of tbe mass of the people. In the present instance those in dustries, products, and organizations designed to promote the material and moral well-being of tbe people are made prominent, and tbe underlying animating spirit and impulse of tbe whole plan are for the advancement, prosper ity, and happiness of the people of all nations. One of the most salutory results ia tbe promo tion of an appreciation of tbe true dignity of labor, and its paramount claims to considera tion as the basis of national wealth and power. Such exhibitions have become national neces sities and duties, and as such it may be ex pected tbat tbey will be repeated again and again hereafter. .As a participator in this great international display the United States bave labored under many disadvantages well known to allAmeii- cane. rue remoteness oi tne exnioiuon, ana a lazy Congress greatly discouraged effort inas much as comparatively few of the exbibitors could get ready and attend to placing and ex plaining their contributions in time. The broad Atlantic separates our artieans and pro ducers from the Champ de Mars, while mofet of the great competing nations ara connected by rail directly with tbe Exposition building The cott of transportation within the limits of the United States to the agency in New York was considerable, and although the contribu tions were forwarded across the ocean by the government, no provisions is made for the repacking and return o! tbe articles which at the close of tbe Exhibition are to be at tbe risk and expense of tbe exhibitor, and thus many persons who would have joined in the Exhibition were deterred from taking any part in it. Yet, notwithstanding ail these difficulties, the country may be congratulated upon the success of its exhibition; and the skill, industry, and energy for the people does not suffer by com parison in the great international contest. Our raw materials are not excelled by any in tbe Exposition, and by tbeir variety, abund ance, and quality, gives convincing evidencs of the extraordinary material wealth of our States and territories. In tbe display of mineral pro ducts tbe coal of Pennsylvania, the gold and silver of California, Nevada, Idaho and Colora do, the copper and iron of Minnesota, tbe z.nc ores of New Jersey, and the emery of Massa chueetts, are especially prominent. The col lection is rich ; but some regions and products are die proportionately represented, and it lacks tl.at unity and completeoess which can only be attained through intelligent organized effort Almost all other prominent displays in this class are prepared with the strong aid and authority of the governments, through regular ly organized corps of engineers. In forestry and productions of the forest tbe display made by tbe United States is not good. Much attention is given to this class by other countries ; the display made by France, Brazil, Australia, and particularly Canada, are notable features of the Exposition. The exhibitions of the cereal productions and of the cotton, tobacco, wool, and other staple prod acts, though in some instances prominent sod thoroughly satisfactory, are in general fragmentory and not on a scale com mensurate with tbe enormous capacity of tbe country for their production. The absence of rich furnishings, upholstery, and decorative I work, and manufactures dependior for their excellence upon a high degree of taste and skill in daeign is censptcions. Elondin has opened a hippodrome at tbe I'lace d'Ejlan. The hero of tbe Niagara per forms on a tight rope stretched at a height of CO feet, and measuring 250 feet in length . Tbe other attractions are the American gymnast, Leona Dare, and a novelty called the Mysteree dee I'retres Japanaie. Tajus, July 13th, 137?. No part of tbe French mechanical depart ment presents a floer effect than that where a number of immense machines, from tie cele brated Cail manufactory, ris3 more than half way to the high roof of the hali.

Tbe femala members of the party displayed their pictur esque local costume a high linen cap, bedecked with gay ribbons : a woolen drees of quaintly simple fashion, and a pretty apron, evidentlv meant for show and not for use. Thus attired, they looked as fresh and pleating, as the men appeared ridiculous. Tbey were amazed at the eight of the artificial ice, and watched the frozen blocks as they come out of tbe machine, leaning over the railings to lay their Sogers upon them, doubting tbeir eyes until an addi tional sense had clinched the argument, and convinced them tbat there was real ice in the middle of summer. What is that distant sign that has just caught oar eye .' amebic ah popcob ; tne sight o: it makes the month water just as the " Star Spangled Banner," played by Gilmore's band. on tbe Fourth of July, made our eyes 6lop over. We must pay a visit, for the sake of -Auld Lang Syne," to the article, which, with chewing gum, every American remembers to have been the staple nonrishment of his school boy day?. How intensely patriotic we become when the Atlantic ocean is between us and home. We denounce our institutions and public men be- fore we bave been abroad, but become devout worshipers cf almost everything American when we have had opportunity to compare them with thing on this side. I have known Americans so patriotic as to take a drink in Paris for no better reason than tbat the saloon, kept most probably by an Englishman, had on it the sign : American Bar." The American popcorn machine is actively turning out large round balls of tbe compound, and a lively sale is carried on, most of the people who gather round being curious to sample it, but popcorn, as manufactured at the Exhibition, seems to be more sticky and less savory than the popcorn we used to smuggle into school and nibble at stolen intervale. Let us approach and we see what this dense crowd is looking at. It is an exhibit of the manufacture of plate gilt jewelry. The whole process is going on under the eye of the vis itor, and a large quantity of pretty bogus trinkets are made and sold. Further on, under a glass case is a most elaborate model of a cas tle executed entirely in cork. Every detail of architecture is finished with surprising care, rendering this work of patience and folly quite artistic in its character. Some idle individual devoted nine years to the task, a longer time than Gustave Dore required to illustrate five great works, and cover miles of canvas". In this section the process of diamond cutting may be witnessed, and a slow laborious process it is. Tbe lapidaries at work on the precious stones appear to be sitting in a large open r vilhon. but, on closer inspection, yoa will find j tbat thick plate glass entirely separates them and the diamonds from the spectator. Every printing and engraving process may be seen in the French or other mechanical de partments. Cnromoe, wood-cuts, steel and sopper plate pictures, lithographs, nncograpbs, copies from Edison's electric psn, and from the American type writer, are all made In tbe pres ence of the risitor. Several Paris papers have preeees at the Exhibition which continually strike off specimen ibeeia for distribution to tbe public Cut no Journal published in Fa ns ran compare in quality of paper, and beauty of typography, with tbe papers on our side tbe water.

The counsol for the hus band tried to eet up tbat this was theft, but P.eferee Barbonr laid it down as a principle that any wife has a right, in law. to take money out of her drunken husband's pocket. Married men who get drunk may take this to hi art.
