This counda well, and much stress la laid by altra Buthualaats among the Centennial mad on the steady Inereaae ol the week, yesterday's receipts, tor Instance, being sn advance over those of the * lay previous. It is probable, also, that to-day's re ceipts will eveu exceed thu figure.

Modest, quiet, and yet very picturesque Is the pa vilion Just completed as a hoadquarters on the Centen nial grounds lor the Portuguese Commission, of which Baron de Saata Anna Is the chieC The building, winch Is on the Landsdowne drive, east ol Agrtoultural ave nue, near the Restaurant Lafayette, opposite to the Swedish school house, is in what the architects call the Renaissance paTilion style, and is about 60 feet square by 40 in height. It baa beon constructed under the im mediate supervision ol Mr. Kdward Sayres, tho Portu guese Consul There sre porches around three sides el the building, the rear being supported on piles which luce iato the Laudsdowno glen. The general contour of tho house is octagonal, the appearance being kept in the dome and in tower which ornaments it. The porch to the south gives admittance to the main parlor, an oc. (agonal room 26 feet by 20 leet, the entrance in the centre being by a double door, tho others being plaecd at carh corner. The roof, which conforms to the gen ground floor, is raised some six foot Into a dome, turrounded by windows, which give an abundance of li^lit to the interior. There is on the roof a small lower, from the top of which proceeds a flagstaff with tho Portuguese national colors The cost of the build ing was $3,000, and, being completed, has been banded aver to the commission from Portugal, who will at once proceed to carpet and lurnlsb It handsomely. At each corner of the villa are staffs lor pennants, and over tho main entrance the Portuguese coat of arms, or a shiold turmounted by a crown In gilt. The commission will oocupy the villa bb soon as ihe carpets can be luid. ? MOX8TBOSITY. A monstrosity has lust been placed in a passage In the Art annex, already well ftllod, which ought to be removed forthwith. It is a sroup of wax figures of ''Cleopatra and Her Family" in a large and cumber some glass case. How snch a vulgar production, which la only lit for a common country "show," ever ob tained admission to a department of One arts is some thing which somebody ought to rise and explain. As an Illustration or wax and of silk and woolleu fabrics It .?tight be stowed away in Agricultural HalL worm or thr exhibition. The unpacking of the works by American artists brought from Europe by the Uuited Slates storeship Supply is going on briskly. Hut where they are to be placed In the already crowded art department is a mys lery to the uninitiated. Many o( the sailors of ths Supply were among the visitors yesterday and to-day. They seemed especially Interested in the pictures ol naval oombats. Some of them were struggling with catalogues, snd of course were soon as far at aea as they ever ware in their lives The work of railing off the pictures snd statues is going on sa fast as is possible with crowds of people pressing around the workmen. Tkere is one matter that the Centennial authorities hare overlooked, and that is the placing of proper sign boards showing the direction of the ditlerent buildings on tho grounds Strangers are constantly inquiring the way to the various State and Exhibition structures, ind sometimes lose considerable time in finding them. The rhododendrons in the tent near Horticultural Hall are in lull bloom, and make a beautiful sight. Go to Moxico, iu the main building, and seo the 4,000 pound lump ol silver. It is worth $72,000. Visitors sre requested not to pocket it. Tho Narrow Gauge Railway is votod a nmsnnce. with its long platforms and wire fences. A practical man is wanted to manage It. The explosiou to-day In Machinery Hall was caused by the accumulation ol water, the reault of condensed steam in tho supply pipe. No provision bad been made for drawing oft the water, and when the steam was let into tha pipe a column ol water urns forced against the cap of the pipe, which weigns about six pounds, and was carried a dUtance ol about eighty feet, fortunately without injuring any one. It was a piece of culpable neglect ana might have resulted laiully if the usual crowds had been present. The rccord ol admissions lor Friday, is as follows:?

The statoe for the monument to Religious Liberty to be erected by tbe Hebrew Order el B'aai B'rltn has beeu executed in Rome and Is saw on Its way to Phila delphia. It Is to be presented .as the tribute of tbn Israelites of Amorlca to the land el their adoption. The following Is a description of this Important work:?The Genius ol Liberty, a poweriul, majestic lemalo figure, eight leet high, occupies the centre, standing upright, the light knee slicbtly bent and the toot advanced; her left baud, which holds the constitution, is supported upon the faaoes or bound staves of the States-at the base of tbe sUtue the American eagle is placed, grasp ing In Its talons the couquered spirit of In tolerance. Tbe right hand ol Liberty is out spread, protecting a youthful ligure on hor right, which represent* Religion?a finely lortned, aesthetic*! fictiru or a youth, graoeiully stand ing with bead upraised to he.iven and upraised baud outstretched to heaven, holding an urn, upon which the etorual flame Is burning. The goddess is clothed In armor, but the mautle of peace, in broad folds, descends in long lines from tbe lelt shoulder to tbe right foot; It .s held by an ugrallfc, so that the right breast and arm are exposed. The American shield Is worked upon the bream-plato. Tbe head is decked with the cap of liberty, the rim ol which Is deoorated with a diadem ol thirteen golden stars. The figure ol Religion is slightly draped and Is universal in its mean lug, representing tbe belief in a higher Power common to all mankind. TBB COLORED FKOPLB who desired to erect a monument in honor of Biahop Allen, the founder ol their cburub, have abandoned the enterprise, as there have been restrictions plsced upon its erection, to which thoy will not submit. They have concluded to place the statue, when completed, in the Bethel churchyard attached to the church on Lombard street. ANOTHER NATIONAL CENTENNIAL COBMKBORATION. It ia intended to . ive an historical commemoration of the birth ol the nation by lorming a loan collection to illuatrato, in oonuectiou with Independence Hall and Its National Museum, the early history ol tbe original thirteen State*. Too President aud Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania Academy ol Fine Arts in this city have ottered liberally a portion of tboir new fire proof building for tbe purpose. 1 tie work inaugurated sev eral years ago lor the formation of the National Museum In Independence Hall will bo continued and perfected here by exhibiting the memorials of the past upon tbe plan proposed bv us lor the Historical Department ol the Centcuuial Exposition. This exhibition will supplement that at Independence Hall, where are illustrated in tbe one chamber the im mediate events of 1770, containing at present not oniy the original Declaration of Independence, with the silver Inkstand from which it was signed, but also tbe verv lurnlture then actually in use, and portraits of tho'illustrlous men who havo made this room lamous: while in tho opposite chamber is Illustrated the period ol 1781 to 1787, with memorials and portraits ol the frainers of tbe articles ol confederation and of tbe con stitution ol the United .Hates. Thus it Is hoped that by tbe collections displayed at these two buildings a duo commemoration will be had ol tbo nistory of the country, so that, by awakening memories of the men who participated in tho civiliza tion of America and in its progress toward tbe estab lishment ol true liberty, wo may Justily our indepen dence and endeavor to return to tho principles ol the founders ol tha country.

ANOTHER VIEW OP THE NAVY. 1*o ran KoiTon or m Herald:? Your correspondent, "Navy," takee a gloomy view of the "Army Circular," and In a lit of vlrtuoua in dignation stigmatises it as "a very small and contemptl ble piece o( business." Admit, for argument sake, that tbe army is bettor paid than tho nary, such is tbe case in alt nationa, and vary justly la It so in tho United States, where great responsibility and constant ?ghttng Is sorely worth more per distn tbsn "Junket lag" oa foreign stations or even the "arduous labors" at a navy yard. Doubtless It would Be a good thing (or tho navy to got the pay ol tho army Instead of the pre seat unsatis factory three rates for "sea, shore and other duty,' but "Navy" would lead your readers to suppose that naval offiocrs had no perquisites whatever. Now, sir j srmy officers are allowed forage, bat no horse*, while > some naval officers are allowed horsss, but no forage This may not be generally known, and it would be la- ' quisiilvo to inquire Shout an "ambulance horse I" ! Perhaps this animal and the commandant's "nag" may bo one and tho same, and the innovation may soon bo lol lowed t>y others I The allowance or $18 per room lor army quarters is scarcely an offset to a One navy yard residence, uor would it go lar toward keeping in order th* vegetable 1 gardens, spinous grounds and conservatories which apsorb all ilie Interest, time and attention of a govern- ! moot gardener, or pay lor a "steward" of the house- i bold, tbe cooks and other servants supplied, to say j nothing of un or a dozen laborers, technically known | as tUc "barge's crew." Orcourso the "Army Clroolnr takes ao account of tbe lact(f) thai the command of a fleet or squadron Is J Virtually equal to the command of. an army in tho held"?even "Navy" and navy officers must smile at such , a comparison. What! compare tbe command of a half dozen hall and hop-giving vessels abroad with the command of an srmy in tbe noldf shades ol I'orier aad Butter, what a comparison I I As to the "duties and responsibilities ol fbe command of frigates and corvettes" being "more than I equal to tbe command of a regiment," now can it bo j when tliese '-duties'' and "responsibilities" are dele- I gated to tho "navigating" and "executive officers?" What a snvmg It would bo if the "adjutant" could take the place of bis colonel or commanding officer, and a still greater saving If the services ol the latter couM be dispensed wills as may be the case In tho navy. Tbe array may have more pay, bot the navy (havtag ona officer ior every eight enlisted utts) has far less work to perform Army officers have a hard life on tbe frontiers and are daily risking their scalps, while ! the only flsbting in which the navy is engaged is within i its own ranks, so thai, to use the graphic laagosge or j your corres|M>udent, "no fair comparison can ever he made between tbe number Of officers roquired for armies as opposed to navies, the datiSS being so utterly dissimilar.'

There is no British Coneul lu re, tbe gentleman occupying that position having given it up a year ago. Messrs. J. Jt L. Coggoshall, underwriters, bad made arrangements to forward tbein as tar as Uoi | ton if no word had been received front Mr. Archibald. Tbe owneiM of tbe bark National Eagle, whiob sunk i tbe Coiiymore, arrived here this noou. Iv was dooitied | to repsir Here, and sbe will have to be towed into tbu Inner harbor. Drawing twenty-one feet of water It will be a dllflcult task to anchor her safely out of tbe way ot navigation. She is not making any more water than usual. The action of the Captain in leaving bla vessel so promptly, without making an effort tu save his wife, excites considerable cotnmeut among uaunuil men. Ho told a friend here to-day that he suw ber in tbe rigging from tbe deck of tbe National Kagle, and tbul she was pneously culling to Ium for livlp, anu that be would have jiynped overboard and bavo gone to her assistance bad be been allowed to by Cupuin Hears, bo made no mention of this fact to your cor respondent yesterday when speaking ol her death.

Richmond, Vs., May 27, 1870. i At tbe instance of the englneor in charge ot tbe Mid | lothtan coal pit at the time of the explosion, by which ' eight men were killed and two aoverely njured, Judge Ciopton, of Chesterfield county, held sn Informal In vestigation as to the cause of the disaster, arriving at [ tbe following conclusions First?Thai the twelve-foot lovel, or big stall, fssub 1 ject to Irregular blowers, or fee-iers, which at times j discharge larje quantities of sub-csrburetted hydro gen and at other tunes smaller quantities of the same gas. Second?Thai Cornean, the gas man, had tested tho level up to tbe head of the working with bis day lamp, and on bis retura wiih bis open lamp lit on bis cap ho met tbe dlsrhargo from one of theso blowers, which flrcd the gas banging In tho celling and around the collars of tbe level. Third?That the hot, sultry weather and low barometrical range ol the atmosphere on that day prevented as free a circulation ot air in tbo level as had been kept up In the cooler weather previous, and also permitted considerable expansion of tbe gas. He further sayB, "In my opinion tbe neglect of the gas man to note this state or tbe atmosphere was moat probably tbe prime cause of tbe explosion. 1 sm fur ther of the opinion that antll tbe ventilation by tbe Aid now being constructed Is established, It will be unsafe to work the twelve-foot level with tbe door to tbe up east leading Into tho California drift open; also tbat there should bo a barometer at tbe pit head of all deep workings, from which the top and bottom bosses should frequently take observations." The Judge still further goes so for as to exonerate the mining ongineer , but there Istestlmony proving con clusively tbat this person was both negligent and oare less in tbe performance of bis duties. It was proved that there was not even a barotnettr In the mino to test tbe state of tbe atmosphere As tbe livening state remarks upon this whitewashed Investigation:?"Tbe very method of it was vicious, being an open inquiry where tbe superintendent could, and so for as appears must, by his position, have in fluenced the testimony of the laboring men, on whom his authority must have an effeot, since he employs them, and In these bard times men do not willingly risk tbeir bread." Tbe eight men who were billed by the exploeion were hurriedly buried, without even complying-with the legal requirement of an Inquest, and the Judge, In his conclusions, states tbat be aees "no occasion for bringing the matter before the Grand Jury." It trans pired, however, that there was no penuriousness on tbo part of the owners of tbe mine, but there certainly appear* to have been oulpable neglect on tbe part of the mining engineer In ratling to provide against the occurrence of, such accidents as resulted In the instant ; and untimely death of eight men. It is ststed to-night that tbe miners will hold a public indignation meeting, at which steps will be taken to bring fhe matter bet ore tbe Grand Jury of tbe oounty for Investigation. A FEARFUL TRAGEDY. ? 7ATHXB MURDEBED BT B18 CHILDKIH? CRUELTY ABD BLOOD. Pamoxs, Duplin Coanty, N. C.. Hijr Sft, 1878. A mysterious tragedy tii enacted near III in station on the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad, In January last A white man named R. B. Hatch was assas sinated in the early hoars of a dark winter Bight while silting in bis own house; receiving three gunshot wounds, Irom which be died a Tew days afterwards. Coroner Lafayette Smith, of Oupiln county, came to the ppol, summoned a jury of the bystanders and held an inquest. It was In evidence at the Inquest that the murdered man was reckless and intemperate, a cruel huxband and rather, and had, on the day of bis death, severely beaten his wile acd looked her into a room lor auothor flogging, which he threatened to admin ister oa the morrow. At the same time be had driven bis yonager children, three in number, with curses out ol doors. Testimony was alao taken to the fact that three nearly simultaneous discharges of a gun were heard at or near Hatch's house that night, soon after dark. Mo one, however, ?( the witnesses examined had seen anything which tended to Indicate who was guilty of the homicide. Although the deceased had lingered for several days after receiving his mortal wouods be bad made no dying declaration which implicated any person as bis aaearsin. The whole matter was a horri ble and apparently impenetrable mystery. Tho Coro ner's jury returned a verdict that Hatch camo to bis death at the bands or some person or persons to them unknown. Hatch bad insured his life, some time previous to the uiurder, with the North Carolina Home Lllu Insur ance Company, ror the benefit or certain of his chil dren. The policy waa for $l,Ma The company's agent at Wilmington refused to make payment, upon the ground that be had reason to belle* e that the j death of the Insured had been procured by the bene flelaries el I be policy. Two detectives, Cameron and Martin, were employed, It is said, for a largo contin gent fee, to work up the cane. These detectives at longtb, after a quest of months, shadowed a man named Weeks, who hsd married one of Hatch's elder daughters. Some alight outgivings and other clews were fastened upon wmch suggested that Weeks knew moro about the slsying of Hatch than he was dis Ksed to reveal. He was confronted and charged with lag aooeaaery to the crime. He denied his own par ticipation, but, being thoroughly frightened, IIOOIMTID til UYTLB CIIM.OR KM whom Hatch had turned eut of the bouse on Uist ratal night ta mid-winter. Two of theee children are boys, ?ed one sixteen and the other len, and the third is a rl of some twelve years. In order to get something la the aature ol evidence agaiaet them the detectives prepceedto conceal tbemselre* in some boshes near the roadside so that they might overhear a converxa tion which Weeks was to have with the accused. Ac cordingly Weeks led a young negro man, whom he bad also charged wlih complicity in I be murder, toward the covert, beforfe reaching which, however, tta<> negro, suspecting something, refused to proceed lurther, say ing, loud enough for the men In ainhasii to hear, that he didn't went to talk any more about it. The two i boys. Hatch's sons, were next brought within earshot of ! the detectives, when Weeks talked over tho circum- { stances ol the murder with them. The boys spoke of i their dead lather'* relentless cruelty to them sad to I their mother and admitted that TWKT SHOT Ann KILLKD IRS, tho gun having been handed to them by their little | sister. They implicated the negro above meatloncd m i having flrod one of tbe fatal shots. The boys aud the | negro were at oace arrested and were taken on tbe 13th Inst, before a Justice or the Peace at this place for ex- | animation. The proceedings were postponed until to- , dsy la order to obtain tbe attendance or counsel rrom Goldsbora Lawyer Granger arrived here about three P. M., and the preliminary examtaattoa proceeded, resulting in tho committing of the accused lor trial at the next term of tha Dupiln County Superior Court, which begins next week at Kensnsvllle. There Is a strong and general sympathy tor the unfortunate chil dren, notwithstanding their uaastural act. Strange lo ssy, the only apparent motive which impelled these almost lafnnt parricides was love for their much mal treated mother sad a purpose to avenge bar wrongs BOY BUBGLABS. i At the Washington Place Police Court, betore Justice Smith, yesterday, Joha Clancy, aged ataoteea, of No. M3 Washington street; Robert Hawthorne, aged six teen yean, of No. 23 Vsrick street, sad James Murray, eged fifteen, of Ho.

An Immenae crowd gathered around the vehicle to witneaa, perbapa, the oldest living woman in I the world. Eulalia Perex Guillen, who, according to the recorda ol her family, baa reached the groat age of 1M yeura and some months, was the rare object ol thu cur.oaity.

Tlio old I laoy seemed to greatly enjoy the attraction ahe pro | Yoked, and evinced an animation ol Juvenility cobtrast | ing curiously with her great age. Iier leaturea are I bnrdly tliaceruible beneath the lioavy wrinkle* ul her 1 face. Her eyes; which have not km iheir vision, peer oat from beneath two red circle* ol lids. Her mouth ! la aunken. ami althouxh her speech is mumbling, yet it j cornea out tolerably clear I The oi l lady wax greatly amused with the interest *he excited. and spoke pleasantly to all who addressed ! her. In the name wagon, silting boMilo ber, was | another old woman, who ta one of tier daughters, nod j on the Ur.ver's box were two grcut great grandclnl ; dreu. The old lady had beeu brought to the city on an application made l>y Mrs l)e White, one ot Iter ! daughter?, lor li tier* ol euardiiiuship. It seems tlio | old lady la Itvlag with Mariana Antonio Htftuera, one I of her daughters, who has tor mod the idea <>f taking her mother to the Centennial, under the idea that there ia money in il. Mra. lie White object* to this, and In order to restrain her sister trom taking the old lady out ol ibo county tiled an application for Tatters of guardianship. The autt) came before Judge O'Melvnny, in the Super vlfor's room, this morning, and Mr. F. 1* Kanurex ap peared lor the applicant and Mr. S. M W'liue lor the contestant. Mrs. Do White testified thai ahe had been told by ber slater thnt she wouli take the old lady to San Krauclxco and thence vp Philadelphia if sliu could make the necessary arrangements. Mr. White, the husband of this witness, tesiitled that the old lady was :n her doMgo and uot a competent person to decide aa to it natter of thta kind; be said he had means and wisnod to provide for the wanta ot hla mother-Id-tow, and t>e 1 loved that she would not live i( tnken away Irom the county; Mariana said ahe bad no means beyond bur house at tho Mission, but that alio could provide tor her mother by her work; that ahe bad lived w ith lier for twenty years, and that hor mother was willing to go anvwhere she had a mind to iako her. When the testimony waa all in Jud;',e U'Melveuy aald that ho perfectly agreed with the daughter who op posed the removal of the mother Irom tun county, and be should forunl it Hut he would leave the old lady at liberty to live with either of her children as she elected, in the meantime requiring Mariana to rurniah a bond in $600 that ahe would not tako her mother out of the couuty.
