her varied mines stand as monuments of

the Duck Town copper mines, represented
in serial, marbles from the quarries, show

She writes me that they have employed
their own captain, seaman and servants,
and may go as far as Cuba. They provis
ion her at their own door, they decorate
her with flags and lead off, the first of a
’whole fleet of such craft.
Now this merry maiden and her light
hearted Pinafore plans sets me to thinking.
How many idle ships, boats, tugs, steamers
and so on are there lying idle up about the
heads of and all along the forty or fifty
great rivers up the Mississippi? And how
many of them are going to be painted up
and fitted up for a ride down to the Exposi
tion, the mouth of the river the Teche and
Tuxpam land, Cuba, Vera Cruz.
Thousands and thousands. Sure they
will not necessarily spend any money here,
for they will bring their own beer and bar
rel; nay, even bring bread and the like for
others to eat; but they will swell the mul
titude mightily, and with their innumcr
able fleet, their colored lights at night, their
banners and their bands of music, will
make sv.ch a scene on the broad bosom of
the tawny waters here as the world has not
seen since the days of Venetian splendor.
THE POSTPONEMENT OF THE OPENING.
This, and the solid reason for it, makes
the triumph of the Exposition a positive
fact. The gathering together of all the
Presidents of all the republics this side of
Europe will be the most notable event in
all the political history of this hemisphere.
Good to the whole wide world will come of
it, to say nothing of the strength and sta
bility this very important fact will con
tribute to this corner of this republic and
the Exposition. I think a little energetic
effort might now induce the President of
the French republic to visit this city of his
race on this grand occasion.
I remember standing by the side of the
Emperor of Brazil, when he declared the
Centennial Exposition open at Philadel
phia. Some French soldiers, noblemen, de
scendants of those who fought for us and
with us in the Revolution, were present;
also some eminent men of science from the 1
four parts of the earth, and Gen. Grant too, i
Bayard Taylor too, who wrote the poem
for the occasion, and indeed many eminent!
men of pen and sword. But for all these
there was nothing so unique in the way of
notable men approaching this promised
gathering of Presidents with their Cabinets
and the various and varied Congressmen
of the various republics. The postpone
ment of the opening till the 1 bth of Decern- j
her, in order to enable these eminent men |
to be present, is wise, and I imagine great i
tact and wisdom has been displayed by i
some one to secure their attendance.
