Piui.adf.i.l’liia, I’a., May i!(s. —At the end of the Main lluihlhi", farthest from the principal entrance, there is a competitive exhibition of a very interesting character. There is u large area of I don’t know how many thousand square feet, devoted to textile fabrics of various kinds and of American manufacture. 1 think nine* teen Americans out of twenty, and I could al most say ninety-nine out of u hundred, would lie astonished, In walking through tills place, ami observing what conies from American looms and factories. Carpels and cloths, silks, satins, and a hundred other things, are displayed; and the fineness of many of the rxhibits Is calculated to bring out a good many exclamations of delight. I devoted the best part of ilio morning to an examination of this par), of the Exhibition, and came out of it much us the Queen of Sheba went from the presence of King Solomon. 1 thought I knew something in a general way about our textile business, hut 1 find 1 was nut half ns wise us I thought I was. beginning as I begun, one finds a whole row of CAItI’RT-BXIIIIim. In the majority of Instances, you look into it room 15 or IS feet fiipiure, and find the lloor covered with one specimen, wldlu the walls on tlircu sides mo bung with others. Hulls of car pets stand around next to the walls, and each lias a yard or so unwound, ns in a regular carpet stove. The articles on exhibition arc thus made to appear to good advantage; mid, as the rooms are In a row, you cun easily make comparisons. The first that you come across Is thu exhibit of the lligelow Carnet Company, of Hoaton; uml you think tills very nieo un til yon go on to thu next,—from Vnnkers, New York State,—and find that It is Inst ns good. Then you come to an exhiidt (nun Uoxbury, Mass., and then one from Low ell, in thu same State; and beyond lids last you Mid onu from Hartford, in the Land of Wooden Nutmegs and other rural commodities. You :aii go hack uml forth along tills line, and, if pressed for an opinion, tho bet>t way you can jet out of Urn matter is to admit that each ilxiw Is better than uny oilier. I confess that 1 lid not know that we, made such good igiriiets 'n Amerlea as one finds here; and, the more I looked at them, Hie more I wondered that so many people send abroad for their carpets-, ami turn up their noses or their toes at the home made article. 1 am not up In thu technical Haim 1 * of carpets; I can tell three-ply from Axmlnster, mid lirustuds from Turkish, Just as I tan tel) Old Hundred, win n I hear it, from thu i«6rs tie worn }irre or \unkeu Doodle, Hut, when it conies to all thu grades and shades of dilforencu In carpets, I nm lust, or, at all events, bewildered, sad I am glad (o get out and pretend I have mi Ini i’urluut engagement mound (mi corner. Til Klt IS AIIH MOltß CAUI’ETS JhhIJoH tllOhO i ItUVU HlC|ltiuiU!(l. Ullit 1 IlftVO [\ lift in my note-honk of something like u dozen nnmui*. Most of the exhibitors uro from New Kugland or New VorU; ten or three arc from Ivunfa; luill hero aro none, 1 believe, from any State further Weid. There Is u wonderful nlitilliirUy among them all; so that, a* lam mil u member of the Hoard of Kxhlhltlon Judges, 1 will tint lire* (end to say whleh is the bent. f uhoiild much die like tube oh the Hoard of Judges, and bo com* I'elled to {tads ait opinion In favor of one man and ifulnst another, when all are eiinally good, or. at least, appear to ho no. Tho Judges will have a bard lime of It in many of the department*, and ditno of them who arc troubled with condolences *11! bo HUely to bo awake a good tunny nights be* I'Vccu now and the Ist of August, when they aro expected to have their work finished. And 1 know of no place that will trouble them nioru than this area which contains the American carpels. Close by the carpets there aro some tahic-clotha and rugs In u largo case. The rugs have o soft and attractive appearance, that would bo • comfort and cotinolutUm to your favorite house-dog; and uiarbeyou wouldn't mind taking a nap there on four own account, aome hot afternoon. There aro woven skirts in great variety; and, by the smiles of approval on tbs faces of the feminine nrornu baders, 1 Judge that the makers knew their bust- Jo ns. There aro several exhibits of shawls,—one in particular, from the Wulervliet Mills, caught •ny eye, owing to tlio great variety of the goods displayed. The Scotch shawls arc well Imitated b<‘ie; and there are all kind*, from light to heavy, Jfuiu oli fe lo black, ami from eo-lly to cheiip. t-ur good and serviceable shawls, un> thing short of luce-work or India fabrics, 1 ice no rea*ou why wc should go abroad uny more than for carpets. The •luallty of the American shawl is excellent, andtho texture Is soft and firm at the same lime. We me jirntand (he manipulation of wool In nearly all hs branches, and are fust coming up side by side with Hr* nations who have heenstuoylng 11 for hundred* uf years.

Claitcdal W«m«Ui iiymUaahuto NwwOfUjtfi have n» ox 1 1 ililt more Interesting beratisn It Is from llm Hinith limn from nny lenlnrn of excel lence, Thu cloths displayed are ijuiln ordinary, imhl Intended evidently for homi-ronmimplioo; they belong to tins family of ' ‘ tiaUernnls," tliongh their color Is varlnns. They consist mainly of checks, like Hit: business of u tmnk of deposit. and a few goods of dark colors, all strong and good, tint without nny Oneness of finish. (,'losu by these f'ntiifuTi» cloths there (i» u large display of mosqu|. to-netting, wtilrh would make good clothing for the Weather we shall have before long; and, In a show-case underneath (111- netting, there In n large quantity of cord of various colors. Now wo count to doth Intended for masculine garments, ami there arc cns< s and cam s of them, until you al most Weary of looking at them. It Is hero that you arc agreeably iurnrlsed at thu work performed hy American mills. 11 was not very long ago dial it was luiimsslhlo to find ft really dim amt delicate cloth from an American factory, ami those of m who wanted good articles for every-day wear had to hay (he Imported studs. Now (he limes have changed, and yoa can see In hnlf-a-dor.cn ex hlhlls goods which you cannot distinguish from Meltons, and Tweeds, utiil \Ve«l-of-Enghiiid goods, perhaps the dealer might note the illller* cnee, and show how the Imported was unlike Hie domestic; hut 1 don’t think U would lie so with the ordinary wearer of clothes. I went round and round the cases, and found n great variety of what seemed to he goods of thu very hen quality for gentlemen's suits. The exhibits of the Gl»h« Woolen company and of tlio Hurlliigton Woolen Company Impressed mo very favorably, lint don't let every other exhibitor understand that 1 pro tend to declare his was not lust as good. in spite of (ho lino qualities of our American goods, (hero arc thousands of Intelligent men among us who still refuse to wear anything hut the imported article. Home of the tailors accommo date them hy selling American cloth as foreign,and charging a prollt of fftl 411 percent. Two rolls of the same kmd of material, uud from one and the same mill, will lie side hy side on thu counter, and, when you want something for n busi ness.suit. the tallorls ready to accommodnto you. “ Here is ft piece of English goods," hu says, “a very choice thing Indeed, and a suit from It will cosljr»ri. l * You look at it and admlru It, and then you ask what that other piece Is. “That Is an American Imitation, '* ho replies, as he pulls It for ward with an ntr of contempt; “it looks very much like the other, ami to (lie ordinary eyo there Is no difference. tint examine it closely and yuu will at once observe! thu superiority of thu English goods. If you want a suit from this, I can make It forf.sß to ill).” You look at the two pieces, and, ns vour eye Is not an ordinary one, you percelvu at once that thu imported article is much the host. You are quite likely to order the high-priced suit, and give thu tailor u handsome prolit. I do not say that nil tailors practice this trick, hut 1 know some that do, and Hint It Is far from Infre quent, And I have known thu manu facturers in lioneot New England who affixed French or Knglish labels to their goods, so ns to accommodate customers who wanted the labels to quiet any lingering doubt la the breast of a pros pective buyer of n suit of clothes. The tailors were not at all deceived by thu manufacturers, ami the only sufferers hy the transaction was the consumer. 11c would have his clothes nude of foreign stuff, and so ho paid a foreign price. 11c paid It willing ly. and, ns the material was thoroughly good, lie obtained his money's worth. DltEdS-OOODS AND PLANNERS, shawls, socks, and stockings, lie around hero In tasteful groups. There aru oceans ami oceans— to speuk figuratively—of common cotton and muslin goods, and you realize the extent of the cotton manufacturing interest, which seems to be rather ovenlono Just at present, if one may Judge hy the low prices of cloth, und tho absence of dividends on the part of tho Companies. There arc yarns fur spinning, weaving, knitting, and other work, and tucru mo linens und cottons, and cottons ami linens. There arc several ex hibits of woolen blankets, lap-rugs, and curriugc-rohcs; und, rather curiously, thu best of them are both far away und fur upart. One is from Minnesota, mid the other from California,— thu first being the North Star Mills,of Minneapolis, und tho other thu Mission Mills, of Hun Francisco. Thu exhibitor of the Mission Mills told mo that they used l,. r >OO,UUU pounds of wool annually, und that it was all grown In California, mid a great deal more ton. q'hcy had blankets of snowy whiteness; andhicach corner of their show-case they hud a blanket woven with stars and stripes into ua American ling. A man could fold himself In this banner of Ids country, and sleep with more comfort than in tho ordinary onu of thin and shizy hunting, especially if the night were frosty und hu were camping out among thu Sierras. .Millinery uud urtiffefal dowers have a plaro clo«c hy thu cloths, hut I didn't Lake them in this morn ing. i crossed thu main aisle to thu exhibit of SILKS AUO SILK 3MTEKMLS. There is n large variety iiuro, all the way from silk* thread tip to dress-goods such as no lady need be uhliamcd to wear. I'aterann, N*. •>., seems to have tiie beet lot here, as it had more exhibits than any other one place. lam told that the American silks have attained so much popularity that the demand is constantly up to thu supply, and sometimes ahead of it: and, if the makers have sent us a fair sample of their product, they have no reason to lie ashamed of themselves. The manufacture of silk* goods in lids country has grown more rapidly than anything else of the same kind. It is not u very old business here, but (I now has millions of capi tal invested, and Is said to be yielding a handsome protlt. The manufacturers are nut yet up to thu tlne»t work of the French makers, hut they bid fair to be quite even with them before another decade. There are some American poplins, in imitation of the Irish, hut not quite up to them in iHiint of lustre and ilnlsh, though they seem to have sulllclent body to be well woven. In the show of oil-cloths, we are rather behind the age; at any rate, 1 didn’t see any to-day that we luve reason to be pruudof. There arc some pood laces, principally from Brooklyn; and there are sumo large rolls of Turkish toweling, and whole rows of cases containing thread. There in u whole lotpfropc and cordage, including one charming little neck-chain about U Inches In diameter. This Is enough for one day, unless you are daft on the subject of textiles, and you may lie if I keep on much lunger and compel you to read all I w rite. Let us have u little fun and then slop. 1 will tell you k RTOHY OP LOVE AND LIMHUHOEH. Some miuillis ago, u youth of this or sumo other city look a fancy to u maiden fair, nm) began to be polite to tier, lie met her when he could at par ties ami that sort of think', and occasionally he called to see lierat home. She liked the youngtnnn, ami smiled sweetly when ids mime was mentioned, 110 was Augustus, and she was Mary Jane. Angus tits wu-n'l worth a cent liimnclally, but he In,a a capital of hope Dial surpassed the treasure of the Fourth National Dank. Mary Jane had a fattier whoso name was Jones, lie didn't fancy Augustus, ami didn't like to have him spooning around Mary Jane, lint lie was u shrewd and sensible old duffer, urn] lie knew, if he raised Ids voice In opposition, that Mary Jane's liking would be strengthened into regular red-hot, diamond-pin. tlal-footed love. Bo ho kept still oml pondered, and then be till on a plan to smash thu courtship of Augustus Into smithereens. At the boarding-house wheru Augustus lived, there lived also two youths of his age and sex, who were as full of mischief ns n caucus In of seekers forolllcc. Bo Papa Junes went to them and un folded his plans, and ottered them $lO apiece to tiring It to a successful end. Within a Week they had the money, and lids la how they earned It: Augustus was to cull on Ids Mary Juno that even log, so of course he put on ids best clothes for the occasion, llalf-im-hour before he Went to Ids room to dress Ids friends went there and took Ids best coat from thu wardrobe. They ripped open (tie lining hutween the shoulders and put Inslduacotiplu of very thin Alices of iJmhurgur cheese. You know what Hint is If you have uny familiarity with Herman beer-halls. Augustus dressed nnJstnrted furnld Jones’ house, llu changed his seat two or three limes In (he street-cur, and, when tie reached tho doorstep, hu turned again ami again, like a dog about to llu down; but Tvvus no u»u. llu usually occupied n scat on thu unfa, at Mary Jniiu’sside; but that evening she was inclined to dignity, and occupied an nrrn-elmlr a couple of yards away. Shu went twice out of thu room to dip her handkerchief in Cologne-water, and tho second time she brought Hie butilu and olfered eomo to Augustus After lie Imd gone home and changed Ida clothes, one of the boys look him out to walk, while thu other restored tho coal to its former condition, Hu examined It very carefully before he went to bed. and naturally discovered nothing wrong, ex cept Hie scent of thu roses which lingered there sllli.

THU HTATB lIim.DINOH are. one after another, dropping into line with their preparations, ami opening up for visitors. Thu Illinois building in open, and very cozy it Is ; mid bo Is thu Ohio building, which Is tho only Statu cdllicu of «lone. The New York building Is prominent and pretty, ami is admirably furnished throughout. and so Is the Mft-sa chusetts building. Thero wan a funny incident to-day nt the latl-r establishment. Col. Oliver has charge of thu edifice ami Us contents, and is as po llto i.m Is possible for any man to ho. Yesterday a middle-aged woman from thu liny State called at thu building, ami wandered around until sfie came to thu private reception-room of the Governor. The <hniulc doors are always kept wide open, so that the entire room and contents cun he seen: hut ingress is prevented hy mentis of a wire-gate about 4 led high. The old girl shook tho gate, and de manded that it should be opened; whereupon Col. Oliver explained thu uses of the room, and told her that visitors were not admitted to the apart ment. She braced herself ns If fop a prize-tight, llxed her spectacles firmly, rested her eagle eyes on thu Colonel.and then said, in n volcu like thu whis tle of ti narrow-gauge locomotive.’ “My husband voted for Gov. lilco, andFvcjasl ns good n rigid to go in here ns anybody else. If you don’t open that door In one minute, I will tell my husband when 1 get home, and he'll write to the Governor and HAVi: YOU PUT OUT OK THIS ’EUR HOUSE, unices yoa learn how to treat people decently. There, now, do you hear thatf” Col. Oliver heard, and turned uwuy to shod u tear and have u chuncu to laugh. The Arkansas building is a Inigo structure of circular form, and with a great deal of glass about It, Hint will make it n (ride tropical when hot weather comes on in dead earnest. Thu Michigan building is gelling Us covering on and assuming shape; (thus fur some time resembled an orna mental hird-engu on a colossal shape, as (he frame wns all in place, and only lucked the covering of hoards that went astray with thu cars that brought them from Grand Itapids. Jt was very nice for ventilation, hut nut sufficient protection against sun ami rain. The Now flump-hire building is small, like the State which sent it, and so Is thu one from Ithodc Island and (Iml from Maryland, Vermont has a small building, not yet ilninlied; nod { um (old there is a row about It, in conse quence of onu individual attempting to run it for his own private purposes, rather than for thu general good of those who came from his State. Now Jersey has u large and commodious building, which, externally and internally, reflects credita bly upon tho-e who built and furnished It. The California building Is large, hut not very graceful; it looks like u pocket-edlilun of a State-House or other public cdlilco, and is nut near completion. Its ueighhors have ungercdsoniu of the Californians hy an Intimation that the house is Intended for the next Centennial rather than this. A Joke invented by « reporter of (ho Inquirer, and orbited In that paper u few days ago, is good enough to he repeat ed: A man from Hangup entered thu grounds hy the gate near the Agricultural Hal], and. after passing through that edifice, began to look around. A policeman of whom ho Inquired showed him which was (he Government building nml the U'ometi's Pavilion, and pointed out In succession the various Statu buildings and Machinery Hull. “What is that 7” said Ikingor, ns ho Indi cated with his umbrella the great toll lice in the distance. “Why, that,” said the sur prised policeman, “that is the Main Uiilldlng." “Oh, yes I that’s the Maine building. Is It 7" Mild the countryman, with a smile of delight. “1 knuwed our hoys would gut up something lino.” Home of the Hoards of ,] udges went to work with great promptness. AH their members were here, mid they organized Immediately after their as semblage on Thursday, and look their coats olt for business. Kxlilbitors wore notified to have their documents In at once, and, that their should lie no delay, they were told that, unless they had them In by a certain lime, they cuald nut gel them in at all. and their exhibits would not lie considered. You may be sure they will ail come promptly up to f hue. In one of the groups where the dodges were nil ready, they began on Thursday afternoon, and last night they had examined over tlfly exhibits, taken their notes concerning them, and tiled the documents ready for making the desired compari sons. In tills particular group, many of tho exhibits were at Vienna, and, ns a goodly numbfit of the .bulges were on the InicrnatioiiOAnjiry of JH7:t, they could simplify their work veryTlinch. In some of the groups there will be very easy work, ns there Is a single exhibitor who stands so far ahead of the others that there will be nodllllculty in getting u unanimous opinion. Hut in other groups, where so many exhibits are very nearly alike, it will be perplexing, ns I explained in my letter of yester day; and it will bo harder to meet that dlllknlty litre than it was nt Vienna, where they gave medals to everybody, mid had so many grades that each exhibitor was pretty sure of something. The Im perial t'ominissiun afterwards saw Us mistake, and reconsidered many of Hie awards; and. later on, It obtained from the Emperor special decorations for men who had been conspicuous as inventory such us Fairbanks with weighing-apparatus, Howe with Hie sewing-machine, lleminglon with Hie hreech-louding ride, and u few oilier inventors of American birth. Onr Commission thinks the sys tem of awards based on written reports is tin l be-t. It certainly can't produce more growling than did the Ural awards by the Vienna Juries. AN UNPOITt.AU SOUVENIR. Tills morning, utlhe Trans-Continental Hotel. I found u man endeavoring to sell n souvenir, for which, I nm happy to say, bo found no purchasers, or at least none while I was looking at iilm. it was a lithographic sheet with Hie Confederate Hag in Hie centre, and some scroll-work around Hie bor der,—the work containing In Hie corners views of some of the places where Hie Itebels did some of their best lighting. .Surrounding the Hag were some verses of the doggerel style, and between the.-u verses were pasted some of the money of the so called Confederate .Slates of America, in notes of various denominations, “How much is this worth?” I asked of the wonld-lie vender. “It sells for St!, 11 said lie; ami then ho went on to say, ‘‘These notes are all genuine, and are pasted to thu lithograph-sheet. Only n thousand copies are published, and no more will be.” 1 added, “No mure ought to lie;” and I felt like making him a good, sound Fourth of July oration on the sub ject. 1 think the fellow ought to bo sent home mid Ids souvenirs put Into the stove. No one Is moro ready than lam to admit that thu Uuliela fought splendidly and maintained them selves gallantly,—liow could they be Americans and do otherwise? Some of myhgst friends were la tho Hehel service: they did what they believed In be right, and did it well; and now that the War is over and mure than ten yearn gone, wo don't bother our heads about It when wo meet. They are willing to let by-gone* tie by-gones, andwuntto forget Hie whole disagreeable business. We are in the Centennial year of our itepuhllo, and can meet on perfectly common ground when we refer to thu Kevolutlon and the events that made us u nation. Kvery man, North or South, ought to lay aside the animosity growing out of the events of IHUlef retiihir, mid do nothing to awaken It. In arranging this exhibition, (he .Manager* have made It us na tional as was possible for them to do with their materials, and you will have to search pretty dili gently for partisan souvenirs before you Hint them. And for tills reason I was not pleased to ilml the peddler of “souvenirs" (tils morning, ami think lie would lie mure of u patriot if he devoted Ids at tention to thu sale of cook-boohs nr giddes to Phila delphia. A pamphlet showing Hie resources of thu South would bu far muro useful than ids present stuck in trade. OHIRNTAI. DRVRI.OI’MRNT*. To ijhc n California expression, there is some flmi “ pamiink-out" in thei.'lilnese and Japanese de partments. lloth of them have more tfoods than they know what to do with, uud (ho spaces around lliolr exhibits are rather crowded with tho surplus slock. And day by day as they open up their box es, mid ns onu studies what they have already on exhibition, tho wonder increases at thu tlneness and delicacy of Chinese and Japanese work. I have sunken oucuof the Japanese bronzes; but. when I wrote about tliun', 1 had not neon several thinas that have since come under my eye.

Hut 1 think at least half Hie flag* are still there where they were nearly three weeks ago, and they have been there bo long that we have be come used to them and pay no attention to the spectacle. A Htrunger arriving here Is naturally led to think the city I* on a special Fpree; and, it hu Is a person of dlsflnefloii, he may easily imagine that the display is on hla account. 1 was once traveling In California In a party of half-a-dozen, and among us there was a noted politician. Our advent was known In advance, and at the villages we generally en countered n crowd of loafers around the taverns where tho horses were changed or rested and tho weary travelers slaked their burning thirst. At one of the towns we found that all the hunt ing In the place was hung out on poles or stretched over the street, and they had gone so far us to hang up (he entire series of Marrvult'a signal-code, the property of a whilom mariner who hail exchanged the quarter-deck for the gold-diggings. “Gentlemen, you have done me great honor,” said our politician as he alighted at the hotel and cleared hi* throat for u speech to the crowd around the steps, “ And who the dash are yuu /” said uu honest miner with a heard like a deek-swab. “This Is the Hun. Mr, Blank,” enhl one of tlic party, presenting our frluml to the crowd In general, and to the gold-digger In particular. “The Hon. Mr. Blank may ho dashed, 1 * re plied the sturdy fortune-hunter. “Wehnln’t got up no show for/dm. This Is the anniversary of the Independence of California, and tlmt’s what all them Hags Is for. Some of uh helped hist, the beur-flair, and thought weM have u little time. The Hon. Mr. Blank, In a horn J n Our politician sought the Interior of the tav ern, and drowned his sorrows In the flowing howl,—a glass one holding tangle-foot whis ky. Hts pride was wounded, und even a pre sentation to the leading citizens did not entlrlv assuage his grief. A similar misunderstanding is liable on the part of some of thu great men who come to Philadelphia in these days. I have heard of one who thus sold himself, hut the joke Is kept perfectly dose, und I have promised not to blow on him. TUB MASONIC) CEbBim.VTION. Great preparations have in>en made for the Masonic celebration un Thursday next. Nearly all thu hotels have every room engaged, and some of them will put people Into their billiard rooms and kitchens, and other places that may not bo occupied at night. The Masonic hedges are patting their rooms in the bcr>t possible shape, and a great many banners have been painted for use on tills occasion. You will have thu main features of the show by telegraph, and therefore 1 won't write out the programme in detail. Hut 1 predict that. If tho weather favors u*. we shall have a imignlllcenl display, ami one of which the Mystic Fraternity may well be proud. Some of the Philadelphian* talk of surpassing the display of a year ago in New York; they may bo able to do so, but, if they do, ttn-y will do some thing remarkable. Thu misfortune of Philadel phia is, that she has no grand street like Broadway lor the display, but must make her promenades through several streets. For InMance, the parade of thu Knlghts-Teiuplar on Thursday will begin on Broad street, whence It will move down Chestnut street to Fifth, thence to Market street, then to Thirteenth street, und then to Areh and Broad streets ns far ns Columbia avenue. Tho-e familiar with Philadelphia will see that there Is unite a roundabout movement fur the procession, and that it gels at one time very near the point whence U started. If thu weather Is hot, us It now threatens to he. 1 venture to predict that a goon many of the veterans unused to lung marched will fail by the way, or, nt all events, will gel very weary before the long march Is over. In New York, last year, tho day was Just comfortable, and the display was tin* greatest ever known in the United States. Thu Philadel phians must do well to surpass it. or even to equal it. They have already mime good preparations, ns a great many Masonic Hags and decorations are making their appearance on the houses, and par ticularly upon buildings where the Fraternity have their bodges. These Hugs and symbol" will give the city a very brilliant appearance, and ulTord a cheery welcome to the eyes of tho coining guests. i'kttv arm: op a tmif.vr city Philadelphia has now a chance to accuse New York of a very putty piece of nu-unness, and you limy bo sure the papers are nut slow to Improve Iho chance. Arrangements were made sometime ago to run trains between Hoston and Philadelphia without change, and the plan went into operation about two weeks ago. Thu train leaving Huston for Philadelphia Is slopped at .Mott Haven, ju»t outside of New York, and thu through cam lor thin city are transferred to New Jersey by means of Die steamboat .Maryland, which used to transfer thu trains between Hultlinure ami Washington be fore the bridge at Havre do Draco was built. From Jersey City thu train comes to Philadelphia by the North* Penn sylvania and Hound Hrook Hallways, avoiding all the delays of New York and battles with it* rapa cious hacknien. Thu route lino naturally acquired considerable popularity, mid Ims roused the ire of New York to an extent hardly to he expected. The authorities of that city, instigated no uuuhl by the hopes of obtaining the political friendliness of the huekmeit and the large number of voters Intimate with them, have taken legal measures to stop the career of iho feny-hoiii Maryland, on thu ground Dial it Is a ferry plying in waters controlled by tnu State of New York, and, us such, requires a li cense or charter from iho Hoard of Ald.rmen. which it could never get without paying very heavily for It. The case has gone into the Culled Mates Court, uud, {lending u decision, the Imat Is Allowed to run. There may he a legal basis for the action of thu New York authorities, lint 1 question if there Is half or a quarter as much desire for jus tice us fur the political support ami friend-hip of the thousaiul-und-om- fellows who are cut off from a dmneo of plundering thu innocent traveler who (lasses through New Yora. As Die Tammany leaders used to say, “Give the boys a bone to keep them good-natured.’' HUMANITY ON HXltimTlON. At tlio south end of thu .Main Exhibition Ilnlld htsf there Is a display occupying very link- space, tjut nevertheless of great interest.
