My Jesus, Take me by the hand And lead me to that far-oiTLand. W. R. V. in N. Y. Obaervor. Judge Vm. M. Shanks, Deceased. IuOCItegtek, Nov. 4th, 1375. The poet azures us that great men leave their ''foot-prints on the sands of time," and though the kind and idolized friend of to-day may ho to morrow wrapped in a winding sheet, yet the good he has done still lives on and or?, permeating the ages, silently quietly affecting society in the inter est ofmoral and intellectual progress. These thoughts are not new, neith er the result of profound enquiry, e'ln the midst of life we are in death," is a truism bearing the stamp of an quity. An estimable citizen, a generous kind hearted neighbor, a public spir ited, enlightened character, has been hewn down by the remorseless axe of death. An humble tribute to his worth, from an obscure source, may not be deemed impertinent by the many who have known him but to admire his generosity extol his vir tues shed an humble tear on the clay that enshrouds ail that is mortal of Judge W. aT. Shanks. Vre are almost tempted to despair of the prosperity and permanency of our Xation as we behold almost doi ly its great men passing away; and quite frequently these may be found amongst tho green fields of the Re public, and in the unpretending ham lets that humbly decorate its fair face. If the subject of this commun ication was not great in the general acceptation of that rather vague and undefined term, he was eminently good, just, kind and unselfish. Wes tern by education, instinctively proud and ehivalrie, his word stamped with native honoi and refined dignilv a beacon light inviting the young and inexperienced who travel over life's chequred paths, to ever pursue hon oraci'e avocations, cherish pure disin terested aspirations. This was the miss-ion of Judge Shanks right no bly did he perform it and years hence when the writer shall have paid the inexorable penalty attach ing to mortalitythe revered name of Rochester's philanthropist will be respeoted, his memory cherished his bright deeds a beautiful sun-tint gladdening humanity's weary, wast ing pilgrimage toward the grave. As we sat in the beautiful little church, and looking upon the large concourse of people gathered there to bid a last silent sad adieu to their lost friend, as that procession of Brothers in the benevolent order of Odd Fellowship, wearing the beauti ful and appropriate insignia of the order,, solemnly passed up the aisle and deposited in front of the pulpit that coffin containing the love, hope, pride, of an estimable family, as the pathetic, eloquent and touching address of the Rev. F. M. Miller fell upon the ears of a sorrow stricken audience, and the eye become moist, and the heart throb was accelerated, and the spirit of poignant oppressive grief penetrated the soul-we realized the great truth that Wm. 3il. Shanks had not lived in vain. And as we si lently walked up to that little ceme tery on the hill and heaven's sunshine dispelled the chilling mists and all na ture seemed wrapped iu mysterious sympathy with the bereaved wife and little ones, I believed that a benefi cent Providence would deal gently with the family of that courteous gentleman, and unflinching friend, who ha.- pasr.cd away to the better land. May our friend's siient bark gently glide over the eternal ocean blessed with the divine presence of divinitv! AMICUS. ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE CENTENNIAL. Circular from the Diroctor General The Act of Congress which provid ed for "celebrating the one hundrcth Anniversery of American Indepen dence, by holding an International Exhibition of Arts.Manufacturcs.and Products of the Soil and Mine," au thorized the creation of the United States Ceutcnnial Commission, and entrusted to it the management of the Exhibition. This body is com posed of two Commissioners from each State and Territory, nominated by the respective Governors, and commissioned by the President of the United States. The enterprisc,there fore, is distinctly a national one, and not, as has sometimes been stated, the work of a private corporation. The Exhibition will be opened on May 10th, 1876, and remain open ev ery -r.ay, except Sunday, until No vember 10th. There will be a fixed price of 50 cents for admission to ail I lie buildings and grounds. Tiie Centennial grounds are situa ted on t lie western bank of the Schuylkill River, and wiihhi Fair mount Park, the largest public park in proximity to a great city iu the world, and one of the most beautiful in the country. The park contains 3,1G0 acres, 450 of which havbcen en closed for the exhibition. Resides this tract, there will be large yards near by for the exhibition of slock, and a farm of 42 acres has already been suitably planted for the tests of plows, movers, r-eapers, and other ag ricultural machinery. The exhibition buildings are ap proached by eight lines of street cars, which connect with ali the oilier lines in the cily; and by the Pennsylvania and Reading railroads, over the t racks of which trains will also run from the North Pennsylvania and Philadelphia, Wilmington, and Balti more railroads. Thus the exhibition is in immediate connection with the entire railroad system of the country, and anv aaie within 90 miles of Phila delphia can visit it at no greater cost than that of carriage hire at Paris or Vienna exhibition. The articles to be exhibited have been classified-in seven departments, which, for the most part, will be lo cated in appropriate buildings, whose several areas arc as follows: DEr-AlUHE.NT. I5CILD1NGS. ACRES 1. Mininp & Metallurgy, ) - Manufactures, " S Main Building. 21.47 ?,. Lducatiou & "Science, ) 4. Art, Art Gallery, 1.5 .-. Machinery, Machinery Uuihlimr, li. (. Agriculture, Ajrricultiira'l I'liihlbijc, 10. 7. Horticulture, Horticultural lluildiag, 1.5 Total, 4sA1 This provides nearly ten more acres for exhibiting space than there were at Vienna, the largest Interna tional Exhibition yet held. Yet the applications of exhibitors have been so numerous as to exhaust the space, and many important classes of objects must be provided for in special build ings. An important special exhibition will be made by the United States Government, and is being prepared under the supervision of a Roard of Officers representing the several Ex ecutive Departments of the Govern ment. A fine building of 4j acres is provided for the purpose, space in which will be occupied by the War, Treasury,.Navy, Interior, Tost Of fice, and Agricultural Departments and the Sinithonian Institution. The Women's Centennial Execu tive Committee, have raised $30,000 for the erection of a pavilion iu which-to exhibit every kind of women's-work. To this collection, wo men of all nations are expected to contribute. The list of special buildings is con stantly increasing, and present, indi cations are that their total number will be from 200 to 250. Most of the important foreign nations England, Germany, Austria, France, Sweden. Egypt, Japan, and others are put ting up one or more structures each, for exhibiting purposes, or for the use of the commissioners, exhibitors and visitors. Offices and headquar ters of this kind, usually of consider able architectural beauty, are provid ed by the States of Pennsylvania, In diana, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Missouri, Kansas, Virginia, West Virginia, Nevada, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Delaware; and it is likely that others will follow the example. A number of Trade and Industrial Associations, which require large amounts of space, will be provided for in the special buildings. Among these are the photograhers, the car riage builders, the glass makers, the cracker bakers, the boot and shoo manufacturers, besides, quite a num ber of individal exhibitors. The great demands for space will proba bly render this course necessary to a considerable extent, especially for ex hibitors a ho have been tardy in mak ing their applications. In the Main Inhibition Building, for example, 333.300 square feet of space had been applied for by the beginning of Octo ber by American exhibitors only; wncreas, the aggregate space which it has been possible to reserve for the j United States Department, is onlyj 160,000 square feet, about one-third of which will be consumed by passage ways. Tiie Machinery Building, liko the others, is already fully covered by ap plications. There are about 1,000 American exhibitors in this depart ment, 150 English, and 150 from oth er European countries which is about 250 more than entered the Vi cuna Machinery Exhibition. Extra provision is being made for annexes i n flccnnimnil"! In i hr livili'inUr. mi.! cbinery, the steam hammers, forges, hoisting engines, boilers, plumbers, carpenters, etc. Power in the Machinery Hall will be chiefly supplied by a pair of mon ster Corliss Engines. Each cylinder is 10 iuche3 in diameter,with a stroke of ten feet; the fly-wheel is 31 feet in diameter, and weighs 55 .tons; the horse-power is 1,400; and (he number j of boilers is 20. This engine drives about a mile of shafting. The Secretary of the Navy has ar ranged that a United States war ves sel shall call next Spring, at conven ient European ports, to collect and transport hither to the Exhibition the works of American artists resi dent in Europe. Among the ports thus far designated, arc Southamp ton for England, Havre for France, Bremen for Germany, and Leghorn for Italy, to which, if desirable, others j may be added. A large number of orders and fra ternities have signified their intention to hold gatherings at Phiadelphia during the period'of the Exhibition. Among those which may now be en umerated, are the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, Independent Order of Odd Fellows; the Grand Encamp ment, Independent Order of Odd Fel lows; Grand Lodge, United States, Independent Order of Odd Feliows; Grand Commandery Knights Temp lar; Grand Army of the Republic; Presbyterian Synod; Caledonian Club; Portland Mechanic Blues; Welsh National Eistedfodd; Patriotic Order Sons of America; California Zouaves of San Francisco; an Inter national Regatta; the Life lusuranoe Companies;NationaI Board ot Under writers; State Agricultural Society;. 2nd Infantry, N.

MYSTBKY OP MYSTERIES. What They Think of Charle3 Ja gau's Death in Morrison. Letter From the Proprietor of the Amer ican House. Mokrison, III., Nov. 7, 1S75-. Ed. Saturday Chkoxiclk : Sir: Charles Jaau was brought to in- house about 5 o'clock in the afternoon. It was about one hour before he began to talk much, and he was as sensible as any mau in the iooin. He told us vliat he was pushed off the ears. He said that they were on his track from the time he left St. Joseph ; that was his trouble he was afraid they would mur der him. Re stated that they tried t hire him to leave the country, se that he could not be a witness in the sui?, for if he did they would kill him, or he would be a (load man. He said that he prom ised that he would say nothing about it,, bnt he would be obliged to when he come to the stand then he should tell the truth let it hit where it would. He was a main witness against the whiskv ring. His salary wa .-?150 a month. He went to Chicago, so iie said, to see a lawyer to know what to do concerning the threats- thoy had made against hi) life. He told us where his wife lived, the street and the number, and also of his friend Lie-how in Council Bluffs, to whom he wished us to dispatch for him, and we would have done so hail he lived until morning. He told us of all the money he had with him, and showed us where it was sewed in the belt of his drawers. This amounted to 8170 and in addition he had in his pocket-book, one 850-bill, ono 820-bill and two fives, which all together amounted to .$253, &U. He told all about what he had to do with the distilled liquors, and uings old. stamps again. There Avas a young man came here in my house and pretended he came to see parties hete and the parties-were in Chi cago, and he wonld take the next train back to Chicago to meet them there. But we have ascertained to a certainty that he onh- went to Sterling, and then returned to Morrison to see whether the man died or not That is only what I heard, but while he was here, he was very uneasy about the man, whether hu was going to die or not. While he was in my house. 1 had some talk in regard to the man getting off the cars. " He asked-me what I thought about it. I told him. from the many stories of the attair in St. Joseph, that I could no!. think anything but he was thrown off the cars some wa for Mr. Jagau said they put something-to his n.-.-e which made him feel numb and tin n threw him out. 1 noticed when 1 told him this, that he was very uneasy, and whenever I expressed my beliel that lie was thrown off the cars-, he would color up ia the face and attempt to change the conversation, lie left here about one hour before train time and he seemed., to be ven- uneasy about the man, wheth er he was going to die or not. lie ask ed the night watch what he thought of the man dving,- two or three times be fore the train loft. He told me he must. o back immediately to meet the party he wanted to see before they left Chi cago, and at the dopot told" the night watch he guessed he would go no farth er than Sterling and lay over until the next day. All this is enough to convict him. There were two other men on the ears, that were recognized as liquor dealers. It is supposed tnoy had a hand in this matter. The general opinion at Morri son is that Charles Jagau was thrown or pushed off the cars in some way. Charles Youxo. Serious Accident. George Reynolds and family were on their way to town on Sunday naorning last and when near John L. Campbell's iesidencc his- mules took fright, a trace broke which allowed the end of the tongue to drop to the gronnd which was moving very rap idso suddenly as to overturn it and throw the occupants out, breaking Mrs. Reynold's i-ight arm, and dis locating Mr. R's right wrist, at the same time badly jamming his left wrist, but strange to say none of the children (a little lame girl of John Miller, two other children of Air. Rey nolds and a babe in Airs. Reynold's arms, although thoy performed some lofty tumbling) were injured iu the least. This is exceedingly fortunate.. Air.
