S17Q others being here, in good health and spirits. " seeing the sights." This Empire City" little village of Monohotton" is crowded with stran gers from every portion of the civilized world. Poor, rich, 'humble, noble," old and young, white, black, red yellow, with a few blue. The nobleman of France, England, and other nations, mighty and powerful, parades and struts about with pompous and important dignity, in all the glorj of epoalettes, imperial and musUusho. But alas! for " pomp and circumstance," how often are they defiled by the noble touch of republican equality. " Sed quiescant in pace." The Crystal Palace was inaugurated the other day by the President, in a beautiful little speech He yvas received with all the honors that Gotham could give to the distinguished head of a great and glorious Republic great and glorious by reason of its equality, intelligence and unparal led progress in a41 that adorn and elevate human ity. His coming was announced by the boom ing of cannon, and a large city delegation recei ved him at Castle Garden. Many regiments of infantry, variously and beautifully uniformed, with splendid bands of music; companies of cavalry and light artilery, yvi'h shining Parapher nalia and thousands in citizens' garb, went to greef and welcome him. I never witnessed such a spectacle magnificent and grand. Broadyvay was "a sea of up turned faces," so crowded that officers had to precede and make way for the President and those yvho accompanied him. There were a hundred thousand people on the street, and in the windows, striving to see him. He rode along on horse back, bare headed, bovv lng with grace and dignity to those whom he represented. I was amused when he put on his hut a plain silk to see that it was nothing but "a cocked hat." knocked entirely out of share, both sides sunk in and crushed. The vast crowd first laughed arid then cheered. You may imag ine with what feelings. Soon the rain began to fall, and then such a satteration ! The President with only an umbrella, got very wet, but contiu ed to the Crystal P-tla,c, and delivered his speech. The Crystal Palace is a building 14 what is a build ing" and entirely worthy of the enterprize and genius that projected it. It is erected on Rese voir Square, in the north westernJrt of the city, and extends over five and trte-fo irths acres; area ol first floor, 107TlSfb ,sqre feet; area of second floor 92.496 Sqiwiw-' feet: The general idea of the New York building is a Greek cross, surmounted by a dome at the intersec tion, over 123 feet in height, beautiful and no ble in its proportions, and the chief architectur al feature of the building, its diameter is 100 feet. The frame work of the building is a Sys tem of iron columns and girders, and panel work, into which are inserted the glass sashes. The glass is one eighth of an inch thick, and is covered with an enamel, durable as the glass it self, being translucent, but not transparent, the rays of the sun give an agreeable and mellow light, free from intensity of heat. The whole quantity of iron employed in its construction amounts to 1,800 tons. The quantity of glass is 15,000 panes, 55,000 square feet. The quan tity of wood used amounts to 750,000 feet board measure. Tis a beautiful, noble, majestic pile ; light and airy in appearance, and graceful in its mighty proportions a successful specimen of our rapid and yvonderful advance, in so short a time, in that art which is to be the pride and boast of this Republic, aye, it's the foreshadoyv. ingof that happy period, yvhen the giant genius of architecture Bhallhave his empire in this land of Liberty liberty of thought, of speech, of ac tion. The "Fair" is no failure, but is eminently suc cessful, even now,- in its incipiency. Of course, the U. S. are far ahead at present; but all the nations, having pretensions to excellence in art or science, are somewhat represented. Two or three hundied workmen are still employed in completing the arrangement of articles to be ex hibited ; and building an adjacent structure. Its length is 450 feet, and width 75, designed for machinery in motion, cobinets of mining and mineralogy, and refreshment rooms on the lower story ; and for the exhibition of pictures and statuary on the upper. No one can imagine the transcendent beauty, magnificence, and grandeur of the "breathing sculpture" ot sunny Italy, the foster mother of all that is glorious in art. There are, also, the slight and delicate fabrics of France, unsurpassed in beauty and fineness of.texmre and the splendid manufactures of England. There is the "model engine," small as a thimble; and scales that weigh 14,000 lbs.; carpets soft as flown, woven in one solid piece, large enough for a very large room : the latest and most ap proved improvements in philosophical andchem ical apparatus; indeed, whatever you may think of is there. Everything goes on in perfect or der, for there is an efficient police. From three to six thousand go there daily. Near and around the building are grog-shop6, fruit stalls, oyster stands, monkey shows, and everything else which my relieve one of carrying money, 01 afford matter for the pen of foreign scandal. I have tres passed on your patience, but ask leniency for YAZOO. An Extbaobdinaby Disco vebt. The atten tion of men of science, in Paris, has been drawn to an extraordinary discovery made in a neigh boring department. A grave-digger, in throw ing up some earth, came upon a body in a 6tate of perfect preservation. On examination it proved to be that of an individual buried thirty seven years ago. lie had died from the effects of the bite of a mad dog. The shroud and the coffin had fallen to dust, but the body remained intact. This is the third exhumation mcde with in twenty years, of bodies of the victims of hydrophobia, under similar circumstances; and it would really seem that they are beyond the the reach of decomposition. The rejistry of deaths was consulted and no mention cf theem bal ment of the body was found. TH BOY THAT BUCKED THE BTJU. OFF THE BAYOU BRIDGE. BT IVAW. In thehrt fLoisiana, Dwelt a nanter DO'd and true, Mid the verW' 8weet Savannah, By the rolling4 . ,ark hay0"' Ever in the forest lou e'v' Fv and morning. nii andi noon Hunted he the fox and squfra,- Or the possum and raccoon. Though he was a modern Nimrod, Yet he bore no hunter's name. For his mother's heart had always, Burned with a poetic flame, 44 Nascitur" are still "cepta." But a name might make him one. So she called him Laratheta By that name he fit and won. Long had Lara reached the wild wood, Dread of e'en the catamount" big Dread too oft of straying chickens, Or a neighbors errant pig Till he spied, beneath of a holly , Standinging on a moss grown bank, A dear maid, beneath whose glances, All his heart within him sank. Long he stood and gazed upon her, While she, like a timid fawn, Gazed upon first at Laratheta, Gazed down next upon the lawn. When at length, yvith ardent longing. Spoke he in the yvildwood dark. She, as fearing some deep wronging, Ran as ne'er did "Cutty Bark." Straight to her papa's plantation Made she for the bayou bridge, Yelling like theyvhole Greek nation, As she crossed the nearest ridge, Swift he followed, and imploring; Would she for a moment stop?" Hark ! what meant that awful roaring As he reached the bridge's top ? Gives him pause, yet ere consider- Ation once could cross his mind, Comes a bull with tufted head down, And his tail erect behind. Making straight at Laratheta, Bellowing like a very cure E'en had Lara's name been Peter, Could the bull have acted worse? Like the Indian whom the " poet" Speaks of in the " Dark Yazoo," What could Lara do but go it, Notwithstanding the bull's, " boo?" So, without a single thinking, Headlong at the bull he g es Almost meets him quick as winking Falling 'neath the bullock's nose As the bull went plunging over 'Gainst the bridge's tott'ring rail, Laratheta rose, and gazing In the bayou, saw his tail ; Then he ran on after Phoebe, (By the way that was the name Of the nymph who neath the holly First had roused his passion's flame.) She yvas on her fathei's bosom, Clinging close unto his breast, Caring naught for Laratheta; Long as there she could but rest. Laratheta heeded not her, But spoke out with accents grim : "Sir, your bull is in the water, And 'twas I that buck'd at him." Quick the farmer stretched his hand forth, Larai beta's palm to catch, And he spake out, "Phoebe, stand forth ! This young man is sure your match. Take my bull from out the water Twas my favorite bull, the "Midge," And the man shall have my daughter Who did buck him off the bridge," THREE MEN SWEPT OVER THE FALLS OF NIAGARA. We find the following despatches in the New York papers : Niaoaba Falls, July 19. Three men belong ing to s scow, which came down the river last night, got into a skiff alongside a scow, and it is sopposed, fell asleep, when the boat got sepera ted from the scow, and was hurried on by the current with fearful rapidity towards the Falls. This happened about half past 9 o'clock last eve ning. Two of the men, one named Andrew Hannaman, the other a stranger, were hurled at once over the foaming sheet; the third Joseph Able, caught hold of a stump in his fearful pas sage and has clurtg to it ever since. The excite ment here is intense. We have no life-boat, and the common boats are swamped as soon as they touch the rapids. A life-boat has been sent tor fiom Buffalo. Parties on shore have succeeded in floating a box of refreshments to the poor fel low, who can be plainly seen from the shore. Citizens and visitors throng the banks of the river to witness the efforts making for the rescue. SECOND DESPATCH. The Falls. Ain The man is still in the rapids apparently drooping. The lite-boat was sent from Buffalo, but sad to say, proved too light, swamped immediately after it was launched, and was lost over the rap ids. Unfortunately, but one boat was sent. The situation of the unfortunate man grows more and more critical, and it is questionable, whether be can sustain himself till other boats arrive. THIRD DISPATCH. The Falls. Half-past 6 n. rn. The man went over the Falls at 6 o'clock. A ratt had been floated to him, which he was on when they floated another life-boat to him, and as he was getting ready to jump into it, the boat struck the raft and swept him off into the rapids. He attempted to swim for a small island, but failed to reach it. He raised himself up to his full height, gave a shriek, waved his arms wildly and disappeared. From the N. M. Union. Letter from W. n. Muse to the Editor of tie Monroe Democrat. Jctt lfth, 185?. Dear Sir. I find in the issue of your paper of the 12th inst., the following interrogatory propounded to m, to wit : 44 Mr. Muse, did you ever receive information to the effect, from any body, whatever, that, ur substance, if you would oppose Gov. Foote on any grounds whatever, for th Senate, and advocate the re-union of the State Rights and Union Democracy, that you should receive the nomination for tome State office?" As 1 understand you to ask this ques tion that you miy be enabled to vindicate the State Ticket as far as you adop it, I will answer you most frankly. I never had such a proposi tion made to me as the one in question, verbally or in writing, directly or indirectly, orany other proposition in any manner relating to the mat ters contained in your interrogatory from any person on earth. I receiyed but one single let ter respecting the Convention or its actfou, and that was dated, Jan. 23rd, 1853. This letter was from a Union Democrat, and that you may s that I keep nothing back, and have no conceal ments, I will take the liberty of giving you the letter entire, it is as follows : "You have doubt less observed a call in the Mississippian for a Democratic State Convention, to meet at Jack son on the first Monday in May. All appear to agree in the opinion that both the late divisions of the Democratic party should be largely repre sented in that Convention. That we should all meet in Convention, unite the whole party in Ftipport of our Ticket, and "bury the tomahawk forever. From present indications, I am satis fied full and ample justice will be done us, I mean of course, the Union Democrats. This it seems to me is all we can ask. In arranging the Ticket, of course both Union and State Rights Democrats must be placed upon it. I have frequently heard your name spoken in connection with the office of Secretary of State. I think you would be very cordially supported for the office in question. Will not your county be represented in the Convention? You must prevail upon as many sterling old fashioned Democrats to attend nn possible. The party if I am not mistaken, is thoroughly re-united, and I think will remain so." Now, Sir, if this letter contains a proposition to me to abandon my principles for office, one has been made me, but if it does not, none has ever been made. There is another fact, it is this I hope I have self respect enough to consider such a proposition, had such a one been made as a personal indignity, and to treat it accordingly. That it should have heaped upon me the denunci ations of yvhigs, and disorganizing democrats is nothing more than what I may reasonably look for, and to these denunciations I shall give but little attention. But where I can render the least satisfaction to those who have at heart the good of the democratic party, I shall not hesitate to do so. There is one thing, however, to which I will call your attention, and in which great injustice has been done me, it is this, that I, as it is said, got but tyvo votes iu the ConveUtion, from this, the first Congressional District. This may be true, I was not at the Convention. But it shouW be remembered that I was, at the time of the holding the Convention, and had been for three months before, a candidate for the office of Dis trict Attorney, in the Seventh Judicial District, which is nearly co-extensive with the first Con gressional District, and that at the time I yvas nominated I was vigorously prosecuting the can vass for that office, with almost an absolute cer tainty of success, and my friends were anxiously looking in that direction for my promotion and not to the State Convention. These facts will account for the famous two votes, dwelt upon with so much satisfaction in certain quarters. As the hour has arrived for me td address the people at my appointment at this place, I must desist, with the hope that I have said enough to satisfy you upori the subjects Upori which you had doubts. Your Fellow Citizen, Wm. H. MUSE. T. S. Denison, Esq,, Editor of the Monroe Democrat. To Destbov Boll Wobhs. A correspondent of the Mississippian, discoursing on this impor tan t subject, says i "Various means have been resorted to without any, or at best, but partial effect to accomplish the purpose. The burning a portion of the flies wfiich produce the worm on log fires, or ensnar ing some with plates ol molasses, still leaves a sufficient number to generate Worms enough to make great havoc in the fields. The only way to avoid the evil, is to apply some general rem edy which will prevent the fly from approaching the plant altogether. The writer of this was ltd by accident to the discovery, in 1850, of such n remedy as he believes will answer that purpose, at least his experience that year was such as to convince his own mind.
