In readiness at the appointed time, I have the honor to announce to you that, under your supervision and in accordance with the plans fixed and established by you, we have erected tbe buildings belonging to us, and have made all tbe arrangements devolving on us necessary for the opening of the ??In ternational Exhibition." We hereby uow fo'mally epproprlate them for their intended occupation; ana we hold ourselves ready to make all further arraagements that may be needed forcarrjlng into full and complete eCect all the requirements of the acts of Con gress relating to the exhibition. For a like purpose, we also appropriate the buildlrge belonging to the state of Penn sylvania and the city of Philadelphia, erected by usat their bidding, to wit: Memo rial Hall, Machinery Hall,and Horticultural Hall. These and other substantial offerings stand as the evidence of their patriotic co operation. To the Urlt3d States of Ameri ca, through Congress, we are Indebted for the aid which crowded our sucess. Jn addition to those to which I have Just referred, there are other beautiful and con venient edifices, whlcb have oeeu erected by the representatives of foreign nations, by state authority, and by tudivldua's, which are also devoted to the purposes of the ex hibition. Ladles and gentlemen, if In the past we ba%e met with disappointments, difficulties and trials, they have been overcome by a consciousness that no sacrifice can be too treat which is made to honor the memories of those who brought our nation Into being. This commemoration of the events of 1776 excites our present gratitude. The assem blage here to-day of so many foreign repre sentatives unlttDg with us In this reveren tial tribute is our reward. We congratulate yon on the occurrence of this day. Many of the nations have gath ered here in peaceful competition. Hach may profit by the association. This exhibi tion is but a school; tbe mora thoroughly Its lessons are learned, the greater will-be the gain, and, when It shall have closed. If by that study the nations engaged In it snail have learned respect for each other, then It mav be hoped that veneration for Him who rules on high will become universal, and the at gels' song once more be heard?

Our necessi ties have compelled us to chietly expend our means acd time iu felling forests, subduing praiiles, building dwellings, factories, ships. Jocks, warehouses, mads, canals, machine ry. etc., etc. Most of our schools, churches, libraries, and asy lums have been established within an hundred y?ars. Burtheued by these great primal works of necessity which could not be delayed, we yet have done what tills exhibition will show in the direction ot rivaling ok'er and more advanced nations In law. medicine and theology; In science, literature, philosophy and the tine arts. Whilst proud of what we have done, we re gret that we have not done more. Our achievements have been great enough, how ever, to make It easy for our people to ac knowledge superior merit wherever found. And now, fellow citizens. I hope a careful eiamlnetlon of what is about to be exhibited to yon will not only inspire you witna pro found 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.
