I For the Democratic Advocate. [ QUERY. | Will the members from this county, to the last General Assembly of the State,'explain why they opposed the passage of the bill ami 1 thereby defeated the proposition “/o provide good and sufficient fire proof rooms for the safe keeving of the records of the county .” 1 It is well known to every person in the coun ty, and they could not be ignorant of the fact themselves, that the so-called fire-proof rooms of the Clerk’s and Register's office are only fire-proof in name, and their contents are at all times in great danger of destruction. So true is this that the officials in charge of them ' are in constant dread lest a fate similar to i what occurred in Baltimore county some years ago moy happen here. The Delegates from this county are respectfully asked to explain 3 why they opposed the only local measure of any importance affecting the interests of our ' people. Were they so busy all the time at -1 tending to the wants of others that they could not find time to look into a matter like this ? Business Locals.

L THE CENTENNIAL EXPOSITION r OPENING CERBMONIEM. MILITARY AND CIVIC DISPLAY. Cine fiundred Thousand Persons Present. The great Centennial Exhibition was inaugurated at Philadelphia on Wednes day, the 1 Oth inst. with imposing cere monies. The number present has been . officially stated ut 110,000, The day was bright and sunny until the ceremonies f were ended. The city was gaily decorated 1 with the flags of all nations, and put on its brightest festal appearance. The priu r cipul thoroughfares were crowded with i moving masses of people all converging to one common centre, the pageant one of the grandest and most imposing the world J ever beheld, everything looking bright and . joyous in the clear atmosphere of the beau tiful May morning. • The platform was erected in front of • Memorial Hull. The stand was very large, r with wings on both sides at angles. On the opposite side a terrace platform was put up against the Main Building for the 1 orchestra and chorus. The distance be- I tween the two stands was about five hun dred yards. Twenty-five hundred singers, male and female, and a superb orchestra, p all under the direction of Theodore Tho mas, occupied tho seats of the music ter race. The grand stand was overcrowded with b dignitaries. Care hud been taken to dl ls vide tho platform into sections for the different classes of official personages rc- 1 ‘ serving tho central place for the President, and seats below in the front centre for the r representatives of the press. Before ten o'clock a great concourse of foreign ambassadors and ministers, mem bers of Congress, GiA'crnors of States and their staffs, centennial commissioners Wear ing their badges of office, army and naval officers, ladies, foreign commissioners, Ac: 1 were crowded together on the grand stand. J The collection of representatives frohi over thirty governments of the world, and of many colonies, besides the chief officers of the American Union and of many of the 1 States thereof, formed an assemblage such 1 us has never been equaled in this country before. * The grand platform, with its numerous distinctive national representatives, com -1 prising upwards of three thousand Indlvid -1 uals, furnished ample material for obser vation, but as the morning hours wore away attention was diverted from them to 4 the steadily increasing multitude of Amcri r can citizens gathering in tho vast arena between the music stand and that in front of Memorial Hall. This space, compris ing upwards of thirty acres of ground, was packed with people. The two colossal • winged horses that stand on granite pe f destuls to the right and left in front of r Memorial Hall were alive with men. The . swaying assemblage in the arena, the co lossal statuary, the vast building piles, ’ the main hall of glass and iron, and Me- J morial Hall of stone; the bright spring weather, the glittering uniforms, combined , to form a most magnificent and imposing spectacle. ’ President Grant appeared on the scene 4 of the inaugural at 10.30 o'clock. He had been escorted from the residence of Mr. • George W. Childs by two brigades of Pennsylvania volunteers, headed by a de • tachmcnt of United States marines and the sailors of the United States frigate . Congress as infantry. The personal escort c of the President was the First Troop Phil adelphia City Cavalry, who wear helmets • with enormous sable-crests. The military display as it entered the grounds and wound around Elm avenue was very cred • itablc indeed. President Grant rode in an ' open barouche with Gen. Hawley, Mr. Childs and Secretary Fish. When the . President made his appearance the stands were crowded, and a passageway across the , intervening space had t# be kept open by a double line of soldiers, who were scarce- I ly able to the duty. Tho Boston Cadets, . and the City Troop, dismounted, and a bat talion of infantry were asssigned to that duty. As General Grant emerged from the passageway under the music stand the orchestra played Hail to the Chief, and , the assemblage cheered the President. Dorn Pedro, the Emperor of Brazil, and the Empress and Mrs. Grant were already on tho platform. Tho President shook ’ hands witlrthe Emperor and others. He then took Iris seat at tho front of the pint form. Gov. Rice, of Massachusetts, and i a numerous staff rode immediately behind f the presidential party. His Excellency was escorted by the Boston Cadets, four [ companies, in white Austrian coats, blue trimmings, and blue pants, and by the i Boston Lancers, in red coats and helmets, i Tho troops were well mounted, and carried r lances with pennons at the lance-heads, i Their band was also mounted. No ether . Governors were in the military procession. The cadets are finely drilled and a splen did looking body of young men. On reaching the grounds the infantry was mussed between the main building and Machinery Hall. In the glittering pageant, Maryland was represented by her Centennial Governor, John Lee Carroll, grandson of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, whoso commanding person, attended by ton Aides de Camp, all iu handsome new uniforms, was the oh . ject of the eager gaze of tho multitude. The presence of Maryland's Governor was not tho least important incident that ren dered the opening of the exposition so auspicious, and he was repeatedly cheered . as he approached tho grand stand. At a signal from Geo. Hawley, presi dent of the United States centennial com mission, the orchestra played tho cuntcn ■ ! Dial inauguration march, composed by | Richard Wagner, and was applauded. ! Bishop Simpson, of the Methodist Epis i copal Church, made the opening prayer. • I Then came the hymn of Whittier. The ■ music of tho hymn is by John K. Paine, • of Massachusetts, u stately air, sung by the > great chorus in the accord and admirable , time, accompanied by orchestra and an j organ. The music throughout the programme was the great feature of the day, eliciting . hearty applause and commendations from the cultivated auditors on the grand plat form, many of whom, the foreigners es pecially, were amateurs and judges. The • cantata, the words of which, by Sidney Lanier, of Georgia, was tho cunNpicuons feature of all. Tho music by Dudley | Duck, of Connecticut, is a composition of much more merit than the words. The • chorus parts arc spirited and fantastic. A basso solo belonging to the cantata was sung by Mr. Myron W. Whitney, of Bos ton, who was heard distinctly all over the vast area, and was applauded vehemently u aiid obliged to obey tho encore, which he i. did gracefully. His lowest notes were like the tremulous vibration of an organ's • pipes. The singer's second effort was re • warded with cheers, and Mr. Buck, tho . composer, who was on the orchestra stand, ) i was called to the fVout and complimented i with throe cheers, j The formal speaking of the Occasion . j was by Mr. John Welsh, of Philadelphia, S resident of tho centennial board of nance, who presented the buildings to ■ ) the United States centennial commission; t | hy Qen. Joseph R. Hawley, president of | the United States centennial commission, I who In turn made the presentation to the ! President of tho United States, and by Gen. Grant, who proclaimed the opening I of the International Exhibition of 1876, i Gcii. Hawley was the only speaker who could Ik; heard, bis voice being strong and clear, held the undivided attention of tho vast assemblage. Gen. Hawley was fre quently applauded, and bis speech, given below, will bo read with interest. Presi dent Grant read his speech, the longest he ever delivered, iu a tone of voice so low tliut he could not be heard throe feet off. PBKSKXTATIOK Of TUK EXMISITIOX TO THE PRESIDENT. (Jen. Hawley made the presentation speech taming the exhibition buildings over to the President of the United States. (Jen, Hawley said —Mr. President:—Five years ago the President of the United Stamps declared it fitting that “the completion,of the first cen tury of our national existence should be com memorated by an exhibition of the natural resources of the country aud their develop ment, and of its progress in those arts which benefit mankind, and ordered that an exhi bition of the American and foreign arts, pro ducts and manufactures should he held, under the auspices of the government of the united States, in the city of Philadelphia, in the year eighteen hundred and seventy-six. To put into effect the several laws relating to the ex hibition, the United States centennial com ■ mission was constituted, composed of two commissioners from each Stale and Territory, nominated by their respective Governors, and appointed by the President. The Congress also created our auxiliary and associate cor poration, the centennial board of finance, whose unexpectedly heavy burdens have been nobly borne. A remarkable and prolonged disturbance of the finances and industries of , the country has greatly magnified tho task; hut we hope for a favorable judgment of the degree of success attained. July 4, 1878, this ground was dedicated to its present uses. Twenty-one months ago this Memorial Hall was begun. All the other one hundred and eighty buildings within the inclosure have j been erected within twelve months. All the j buildings embraced in the plans of the cum- | mission itself are finished. . The demands of applicants exceeded the space, and strenuous and continuous efforts have been made to get every exhibit ready in time. By general con- j sent the exhibition is appropriately held in ; the City of Brotherly Live. Yonder, almost ' within your view, stands the venerated edifice i wherein occurred the'event this work is de- : signed to commemorate, and the hall in which ' the first Continental Congress assembled, j Within the present limits of this great park ' were the homes of eminet patriots of that era, I where Washington and his associates received generous hospitality and able counsel. You i ave observed the surpassing beauty of the j situation placed at our disposal. In harmony i with all this fitness is the liberal support given the enterprise by the State, the city, and the people individually. In the name of the i United States you extended a respectful and I cordial invitation to the governments of other [ nations-to be represented and to participate I in this exhibition. You know the very ac ceptable terms in which they responded, from | even tho most distant regions. Their com missioners ore here, and you will soon see , with what energy and brilliancy they have 1 entered upon this friendly competition in the arts of peace, ft has been the fervent hope ! of the commission that, during this festival , year, tho people from all Slates and sections, of all creeds and churches, all parties and classes, burying all resentments, would come ! up together to this birthplace of our liberties, to study the evidence of our resources; to I measure the progress of ar; hundred years; and to examine to our profit the wonderful products of other lands; but especially to join hands in perfect fraternity and promise the God of our fathers that the new century shall j surpass the old in the true glories of civilisa- 1 tion. And furthermore, that from the asso- I ciation here of welcome visitors from all nations, there may result not alone great i benefits to invention, manufactures, agricul ture, trade and commerce, but also stronger international friendships and more lasting ! peace. Thus reporting to you, Mr. President, under the laws of the government and the i usage of similar occasions, in the name of j the United States centennial commission, I | present to your view the international exhibi- I tion of 1870. AIIOKKSM OK i’KESIDKN'T ORA XT. At five minutes to 12 o'clock President Grant, amid great applause, delivered his address accepting the trust. The President said—My Countrymen : —lt has been thought appropriate, upon this centennial occasion, to bring together iu Philadelphia, for popular inspection, specimens of our attainments in the industrial and fine arts, and in literature, science and philosophy, as well us in the great business of agriculture and of commerce. That we may the more thoroughly appreciate the excellences and deficiencies of our achieve- t ments, and also give emphatic expression to ' our earnest desire to cultivate the friendship j of our fellow-menibers of this great family of i nations, the enlightened agricultural, com mercial and manufacturing people of the world have been invited to send hither cor responding specimens of their skill to exhibit on equal terms in friendly competition with our own. To this invitation they have gener ously responded ; for so doing we render them our hearty thanks. The beauty and utility of the contributions will this day be submitted to your inspection by the managers of this exhibition. We are glad to know |hat a view of specimens of the skill of all nations will afford to you unalloyed pleasure, as well as yield to yon a valuable practical knowledge of so many ol the remarkable results of the wonderful skill existing in enlightened communities. Cue hundred years ago our country was new and but partially settled. Our necessities have compelled us to chiefly expend our means and time in felling forests, subduing prairies, building dwellings, factories, ships, docks, warehouses, roads, ca nals, machinery, etc. Most of our schools, churches, libraries, and asylums have been es tablished within a hundred years. Burdened by these great primal works of necessity, which could not be delayed, we yet have done what this exhibition will show iuthe direction of ri valing older and more advanced nations in law, medicine and theology: in science, litera ture, philosophy aud tho fine arts. Whilst ! Eroua of what we have done, we regret that we ave not done more. Our achievements have I been great enough, however, to make it easy for our people to acknowledge superior merit I wherever found. And now fellow-citizens, | 1 hope a careful examination ofwhat is about j to be exhibited to you will not only inspire I yon with a profound respect for the skill and taste of our friends from other nations, but also satisfy you with the attainments made by our own people during the past one hundred years. 1 invoke your generous co-operation with the worthy commissioners to secure a brilliant success to this international exhibi tion, and to make the stay of our foreign vis itors—to whom we extend a hearty welcome— both profitable and pleasant to them. 1 de clare the international exhibition now open. The President was then loudly cheered, the Emperor of Brazil rising in his seat and join ing in the demonstration by waving his hat After the lapse of fifteen or twenty minutes tho foreign commission era assem bled in tho transept of the main building. President Grant escorting tho Empress of Brazil and Dom Pedro escorting Mrs. Grant, appeared, preceded by guards to keep the way open and prevent crowding from the throng of people. The Presi dent and Emperor were introduced, and shook hands with the commissioners. Dom Pedro seemed much interested in the dis play, aud kept his eyes actively at work, and at the same time maintained an animated conversation with Mrs. Grant, finding also a word for every one with | whom he came in contact. The party made a lengthy tonr of the main building, and then proceeded to Machinery Hall, where the great wheel was to be set in mo tion, and the Corliss engine was to begin its work for the next six months. The occurrences in Machinery Hall formed the most interesting events of the day, when at half-past one o'clock Presi dent Grant and Dom Pedro started the motive power of that ball. At a signal from Qen. Hawley the President and the Emperor each seized a crank opening the valves and turned them several tiroes. At once a sound was heard which gave to the people tho understanding that the engine was about to move; then the monstrous seventy-ton fly-wheel began slowly moving, increasing gradually in rapidity until it was traveling at its full speed. General Hawley started the “hurrah,” which was taken up by the surrounding multitude. The deafening cheers traveled through the building, and as all the wheels In the hsll began moving, the ringing of tho bells and other demonstrations told to tho world that the centennial exhibition waa fairly opened. At night the city was brilliantly illumi nated, calcium lights rendering the neigh borhood of old Independence Hall as light , * d y- t The first newspaper waa printed in this country in September, 1690. i Philadelphia Letter. - JtUHi/uratiuu "f ihr Xalional MxkibUivu— j CruyprU, hlnikutiatm , and Mud.

Thouuauds who would have thronged the city from New York, Balti ! more, Washington, Wilmington, Newark, . Heading, and other near cities, were de i terred from coming, bat thousands from 1 more remote localities, enruute fur the Centennial grounds could not turn back, I while thousands of visitors had already . arrived, and it was impossible fur the in i auguratiuu ceremonies to fall flat iu de fault of a large and distinguished audience. At noon an Tuesday the limited express arrived witli the President of the United . Slates, his cabinet, justices of the supreme court, and Emperor of Uracil, the latter. occupying a separate car. In the evening ’ a special train brought members of Con gross, their wives aud families to the nuiu ar of about seven hundred. Governors i of States with their staffs had been arriv ing for two or three days previously, and ; many members of foreign legations bud been I here fur more than a week. In spite of F the rain, the various military companies ; paraded the streets and bedraggled their 1 splendid uniforms with mud. The many foreigners in the city cannot but form the highest opinion of the ruprit of our civic soldiery, if they will march through vile I and sloppy streets fur more displsy what , would they not dare sod endure iuspired 1. 1 by a great cause! ,'■ Karly, at five o'clock, on Wednesday morning the transient aud local population |of Fhildelphia were awakened (that is those of them that had been able, in spite , j of excitement and anticipation, to sleep )by tho cracked and ancient tones of Indepen i | dcocc bell. The ruin was still falling and { all signs, including Old Probabilities, be- I tokened a disagreeable day, but it was al ; must impossible to sec the heavens, the view was intercepted by a canopy of drip i j ping bunting more variously colored than Joseph's coat. The American flag too largely predominated, fur this was an iu , tcrnatiunal occasion,and the excess of stars and stripes will be mors appropriate on the • ■ fourth of July. Independence Hull was 1 ■ literally swathed in bunting, 4000 yards it is said were used in its decoration; the coats of arms of the original thirteen .States were displayed from the windows, the col | ors of all nations were flying from wires stretched from the steeple to the roof, white over all floated a large flag of the 1 colonial times. Over the entrance of tho main hall was a painting of the temple of I liberty twenty feet high and sixteen feet broad, surmounted by a life size figure of the Goddess of Liberty. There wore also | two large figures of Commerce and Agri culture, one at each end of the building. In spite of mud and rain Philadelphia j turned out, it seemed, en niusie and forced i toward the Centennial grounds. The street cars were crowded to the straps and : platforms, every other wheeled thing was crowded, and the pavements were thronged with pedestrians, male and female, veteran j and juvenile, all with their faces set toward Fairmount Park. By 9 o'clock tens of i thousands had reached the Centennial' I grounds and were thundering mub like for admission, no one knew where to finable special place of entrance, and the gate keepers were too fresh iu their business to give the needed information. About five hundred members of the press were pressing for entrance at the gate that was designed for the admission of another class, but these enterprising Bohemians skirm ished around the circumference until they found the proper gate, and were able to reach the grand stand in time to find their seats occupied by the more enterprising ! mob. At ten minutes after ten,Geu. Hawley. '! President of the Centennial Commission, appeared upon the speaker s stand, and looking over the vast sea of heads, waved a white silk handkerchief to the Orchestra beyond. Theodore Thomas lifted his wand, his Orchestra of two hundred aud fifty performers lifted their instruments, and the medley of national airs was bugun and finished in the following order:—l, The Washington March; 2, Argentine Re public, Marche de la Republics; 3, Aus tria. Gott erbalta Franz den Kaiser; 4, Belgium. La Brabanconne; 5, Brazil. Hymno Brasileira Nacional; 6, Denmark. Volkslied, den tappre Landsoldal; 7,France. Id Marseillaise, 8, Germany. Waa ist des Deutschon Vaterluud; 9, Great Brit ain. God Save the Queen; 10, Italy. Marcia del Re; 11, Netherlands. Wic neerlandsch blood; 12, Norway. National Hymn; 13, Russia. National .Hymn; 14, Spain. Riego's Spanish National Hymn; 15, Sweden. Volksongen, Bevarc Gud var Kang; 16, Switterland. Ueii dir Helvetia; 17, Turkey. March; 18, Hail Columbia. It was very difficult to hear this music, I even at a abort distance; the clouds had been dispersed, the sun beamed warmly, I and the enthusiasm of the crowd arose to I a midsummer ardor; they applauded every thing and every body. A number of boys and men bad the enterprise to scale the two conspicuous bronze collossal winged horses in front of Memorial Hall, and they excited quite as much attention as the programme. The music of National airs was too long, a thing that could not be helped; the prayer that followed by the Right Rev. Bishop Simpson, was also too long, a thing that could have been helped. After the prayer, was sung the Hymm composed by Whit tier, and sung by a chorus of 900 trained voices, accompanied by the Thomas Or chestra and the mammoth organ in the main building. Then followed, Ist, the Presentation of tho buildings to the Uni ted States Centennial Commission by John Welsh, President of tho Centen nial Board of Finance; 2d,4be Cantanta composed by Sidney Lanier, of Georgia, and sunf- by the choir; 3d, the formal presentation of the Exhibition to the Pres ident of the United Stales by Gen. Haw ley, aud, lastly the address by the Presi dent proclaiming the opening of the Inter national Exhibition of 1876. This con cluded the ceremonies in the open air. A procession was now formed headed by President Grant and Director General Goahorn, and composed of the Chief Justice of the United States, the President of the Senate, Hon. S, S. Cox, represen ting the Speaker of the House, tho Senate of the United Statea, tho House of Repre sentatives, Army and Naval Officers, Con ■nls, Minister of Foreign Powers, snd Attaches of Legation, eto., etc. These walked slowly through the main building, and into Machinery Hall, where General Grant and the Emperor of Brazil, assisted by G. H. Corliss, put in motion the great Corliss Engine and its connecting machinery. No farther formal order was maintained. The crowd estimated at 100,- 000 dispersed to look at the innumerable objects on exhibition. c. a. s. Virginia will contribute some interest ing historical portraits to the Centennial. Mr. William Wirt Henry will send a por trait of his grandfather, Patrick Henry, and the Historical Society will send por , traits of Pocahontas, Lafayette, Gov. Percy, who succeeded John Smith, and others. Efforts have been made to obtain from the State Library the portraits of t Governor and Lady Spotawood and the parole which Cornwallis gave at his sur render, bat as there is a question of law i in the matter, it is doubtful if it will suc ceed. | Fid. te Us Hull !
