Autumn Thoughts.
Oh, leaves of y Row glory.
And leaves of crimson hue,
A-waivin in the sunshine,
Beneath tiie sky so bin?:
Poor leaves:
And murt y-u sometime fade,
And 'nenth the winter's snow be laid?
Oh, hopes I've loved to chrrish,
And dreams I've dreamed and dreamed!
0!i, thoughts of wihl ambition
That o'er my life have beamed !
Dear hopes!
Why must you fade and die,
And on?.'' in the sad past lie?
Oh, Land of peac? and comfort!
Oh. City made of gold!
Where Cowers never wither,
Where true hearts ne'ergrow old.
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.
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:
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
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
The list of special buildings is con
stantly increasing, and present, indi

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
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
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

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.

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.

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..
