Hospital Fail** THIRD DAY, The third day of tin* Fair was a success be yond the hopes of its projectors. All day long the hall was crowded with visitors, aud in the evening there was such a jam that it was work of difficulty to make one’s way through the crowd. The sales at the tables were larger than on any previous day, and the number of articles thereon show a sensible diminuafcion. The flowers for the day were contributed by Mr. Joseph A. Dirwauger, and were profuse m quantity, and most excellent in quality. “ deed, one could expect nothing else rora o 4 , * ' Noticeable among the noted a conservatory. rsor‘ , , * -I irp the fine black walnut new contributions are doors for the Hospital valued at $100 from J. p.

Nos. 1!) and 20—Are household tables, and nearly everything in that line can be found at these tables. The display is very fine indeed. Mrs. Blanchard is cashier, and the Misses Alice and Sarah Fernald, Louise Strout aud Curtis assistants. A fine lot of maple sugar was re ceived yesterday.

No. 25 is the lemonade stand, which is much patronized by lovers of lemon juice. The warm weather yesterday caused large sales of the pleasantly acid beverage. Art Gallery. The collection of paintings and drawings in the Art Gallery deserves a much longer notice than we are able to give it. We must content ourselves with noticing briefly a few of the productions which have particularly attracted our attention. Days can be profitably spent by the art lover in studying the 105 originals and excellent copies hung upon the walls. The fiuest paintiug in the collection is un questionably No. 64, by Leutze. It represents a dim old cathedral, rich in statues and pictures of saints, and adorned with rich reli quaries and hierarchical symbols. A band of fierce Reformers, nerved by all the hate which gives energy to the fanatic, are tearing the images from their niches and the canvasses from their frames. In the background a mer ciless zealot is dragging a celebrant from the very steps of the altar. The tesselated pave ment is strewn with the consecrated mitres of abbots and the sacred vestments of priests. In the foreground a kDot of women with horror depicted upon their countenances, are bewailing No. 4 is a copy of Couture’s celebrated '‘De cadence of the Romans.” It represents a band of revellers, men and women, with flushed faces and dishevelled locks, reclining upon couches in a marble palace by the banks of the Tiber. Gazing down upon them, as if sternly rebuking the decadence of their children, stand the carved effigies of old Rome. With out is a gliirtpse of the blue sky of Italy. Nos. 02 and 59 are exquisite drawings in India ink, by Darley. The subjects are taken from Dickens. The first represents Little Nell and her grandfather, seated iu the old curiosity shop amid the tag ends of the costumes of centuries, while the practico-sentimental Kit is dividing his attention between the lunch before him and the sweet girl at his side. The other represents Little Em’ly, stretched upon the wet sea-sand crushed with her agony ol grief and shame, while the honest fisherman is tenderly bending over her. Nos. 6 and 7 are two of Birket Foster’s un surpassed water coiors. Nos. 89 and 94 are copies of two of Murillo’s most noted works, thp Fruit Sellero and the Little Gamblers. Nos. 8 and 17 are two of Van Nehlig’s best efforts, marked by his masterly treatment of shadow and by the strong individuality of his figures. The “Blood Money" is particularly noticeable for its treatment of the conspirators in the foreground, and the dusky street at the back. Nos. 44 and 84 are two of Norton’s magnifi cent marines—the “Good-bye” and the "Kear sage and Alabama.” No. 86 is Rebekah at the Well. The figure has the lithe form and dark, lustrous beauty of the Jewess. The eyes are dreamy with a vague expectation. The drapery and the surround ings are admirably managed. No. 88 is “Wolf hunting in Russia,”—a strange, white picture, in wnich the most diffi cult of all colors is handled iu a masterly man ner. No. 2 is the portrait of Louise Albrecht, a charming picture to look at, warm and rich, with au air of purity about it that immediately strikes the attention. No. 11 is Gifford’s Kaatskill Cove, a pain'iug noticeable for the deep splendor of its clouds. No. 34 is the great panoramic picture of Hart’s entitled New Eugland Scenery. Its ad mirable delineation, its comprehensiveness and the richness and delicacy of its coloring, makes it on e of the most noticeable paintings in the gallery. No. 73 is that gem of a painting, Tait’s “chickens.” On looking at it one is ready to aver that chickens were never painted before. ' It is a- original and unmistakable in its way as the O of Giotto, or the chirography of Rufus Choate. No. 67 is Mrs. Murray’sadmirable “The Cheat detected,” the best work that ever came from her brush. No. 61 is Maclisc’s well known “Gipsey Moth er.” 1,0. 72 is au excellent portrait of the Presi. dent of the Hospital Association, John B. Brown. 1 No 82 is a porcelain Of the Dresden choco late girl. No. 55 is a copy of the Fornarina. No. 32 is a farm-yard scene by c. J grim macher. It is admirably done, Mr. Schumach er has no right tt> call himself an amateur merely when he can put forth such work as this. No. 41 is a view on Presumpscot river, by J. B. Hudson, jr , and is marked by much artistic taste and facility of execution. No. 79 purports to he a copy of “Murillo’s Magdalene,” but is really after the superb mas terpiece of Correggio, which adorns the Munich gallery. Nos. 29,45,90 and 93 are some of Harry Brown’s best works, and are familiar to nearly all our readers. PUNCH AND JUDY. Among the other attractions at the Fair is the well-known show of Punch and Judy. This old show, so attractive to English speaking people, is too familiar to all to need any description. If there are any who have attended the fair aud missed witness ing this part of the programme, we can assure them that they have not seen one of its best features. Reception Hall is used for thu enter* tainmeut, and it is literally packed the whole time. Punch is a queer fellow and rather hard to be suited. Every time anybody does any thing for h!in or to him, he shows his tion of the same by a gentle tap over t e ea , that sends them reeling down stairs. Even when his only child is presented to him he fondles it for a moment aud then throws it out uf the window and breaks its neck. The hang man, the terror of all, affects him not in the least; he gets him to put his head through the noose, “just to show Punch how it’s done”, and then hangs the poor man and throws the body lownttairs. His poor affectionate wife Judy, •hat he kisses so sweetly, when she first enters -he room, has to suffer the same cruel fate, rhe children are wild with delight at the show. A ghost is the only thing that can leally scaro him and at the appearance of it Mr. Punch lies dowrr, quivering like a leaf, aud cannot be per suaded to arise until he is assured that the wraith has departed. Then he slowly rises with the remark that lie stubbed his toe and that was all. Soon Punch gets more than he can handle and the show is over. Before the Punch aud Judy begins there is a minstrel per formance, and if you want to see a darkie use bones, get in in time to witness this part of tho entertainment. FOREST CITY PARK. THIRD DAY. Yesterday morning was usberad in with a clear sky and a smiling suu. Indeed it was just such a day as the Poet Lowell describes wheu he wrote: “What Is so rare as a dav In June, Tncn, if ever, came perfect days.” The sweet sceuted a r proved a tonic “that exhilarates without inebriating.” We are sorry to be obligea to add in this connection that there was sold on the Park grounds a “tonic” of an entirely different nature, which was rath er staggeringly powerful, judging from the pe culiar effects upon those who imbibed.— Soon after diuner the exodus from the city to the Park begun. Public vehicles of every de scription were busy carry! g passengers to the races, and the drivers vociferaus in their invita tions to almost every wayfarer whose face was turned Parkward. Competition iu prices ruled as well. Prices varied from 60 to 15 cents, boys with dilapidated horses, with boards for seats on the wagons, “Barkis” like, being willing for the latter sum. The private carriages upon the ground were much more numerous thau on the previous days. A great many ladies were pres ent. There were probably 2500 hundred people on the grouuds duriug the racing. A delicious breeze rendered the long exposure to the full rays of the afternoon sun much more endura ble than was experienced on Wednesday, when the intense heat without a single relieving current of air made the Park seem almost in tolerable. The track was iu splendid condition, and everybody appeared to be in that most per fect humor indicative of an expectation to win, always predominating in a bettiug man. The hoar having arrived at which the first race was announced to begin, Messrs. J. S. Heald of Portlaud, Isaiah Fompillyof Auburn, aud S. F. Hotbrook of Oxford, ascended to the judges' stand. The pool selling was quite warmly contested, Lothair being the favorite, with Grace second. The race was for a purse of $250, for horses that have never trotted better than 250, $150 to to the first, $60 to the second, $40 to the third. The following eutries were made: S. H. Jacobs, Skowhegan, Me., names g m Lady Walton. Wright & Norcross, Mystic Park, Boston, names blk s Lothair. Dan Btgley, Beacon Park, Boston, names b m Grace. G. H. Hicks, Charlestown, Mass., names b m Flo ra. Geo. M. Delaney, Augusta, Me., names blk m La dy Hassan. Pru leu Letonmeau, West Watervllle, names b m Lady Mansfield. The horses drew the following positions:— Flora inside, Lady Mansfield second, Lothair third, Grace fourth, Walton fifth, aud Hassan last. First heat—After a good deal of jockeying the borsss got the word, and started off hand somely Lothair taking the pole, with Grace pressing him hard and the other three horses esnae distance in the rear. The heat was easily won by Lothair. Grace came in second. Lady Mansfield and Lady Hassan were distanced. Time, 2.45. Second heat— After a twcuty minutes rest to the horses they were called up by the judges. At the signal a good start was made with Lj thair at the pole. On the first half ha broke badly and lost several lengths, Flora and Grace spurting ahead, but he was quickly brought upon his legs, when be let them out with such effect that before the third quarter turn he was again at the pole, which be held steadily to the end, coming iu several lengths ahead of Gracei who made the second time. Lady Waltou at d Grace came in almost together, Walton ahe:d Time 2.44. Third heal—The start was excclleut. The horses passed the wire without a break and in proper positiou. Lotbair took the pole with the head of Grace over his wheel, Flora close be biud. Lady Walton fell so far short she was distanced. The horses came in as they weut out. Time 2.45. summary.

Dan Bigley, Beaccu Park, Bos'on, names b m Lady Weniwnrih. Wright & Norcross, Mystic Park, Boston, name cb g Auburn Boy. Geo. M. Delaney, Augusta, Me., names br g Billy Bumpus. First heat -The horses were fretted a good deal before a true start was taken, but at the word go they went off with heavy spurting, Bumpus catching the pole and bolding it for the first half. Lambert, however, put in some tremendous strides and caught Bumpus hut was uuahle to pass him. Both horses were neck and neck. The interest among the spectators was intense. Neither horse appeared to gain or lose au inch. The whole heat after the first half was run in this manner, these two horses com ing in in splendid style, very nearly abreast. Bumpus came under the wire about two feet ahead and won the heat, amidst the wildest shoutings of the assembly. The judges accord ed the heat to Bumpus, giving the second to Lambert, and third to Stranger. Second heat—The drivers seemed determined to delay the start by getting into wrong posi tions. The judges finally ordered the flag-man to line them. At the word go^Lambert took the pole, with Bumpus close behiud and Au burn Boy iappiug Bumpus. The entire heat was run in these relative positions, with hut little varying. Time 2.40J. Third heat—A good start was had, Lambert takiug the pole and swinging several lengths ahead of the others. He made an easy run for the beat and scored handsomely, Bumpus be ing secoud. Auburn Boy third. Time 2.44. Fourth heat—The horses got a fair start, Au burn Boy spurting ahead, but was quickly pass ed by Lambert who held the pole to the close. Auburn Boy tried hard to pocket Bumpus, aud worried him a good deal# The heat and the race was won by Lambert, Bumpus second and Auburn Boy last. Time 2.44. SUMMARY. Lambert. 2 1 1 1 Bumpus. 1 2 2 2 Auburn Boy.4 3 3 3 Stranger.3 4 4 4 During the races several side-sboivg entertain ed the crowd. There was the famous three card moute in full operation. “Prof Haines” and “Slim Jim” were ir. their glory. These fellows appear to be never so happy as when pocketing the mone.i of some simple, minded youth. Then there was the man who gave away greenbacks, sold dollars for seventy-five cents, and cheated openly the crowd out of several hundred to pay fur it. A slight misunderstanding occurred be tween this fellow and a young man whose team he wa_ using under promise of $5. The teamster demanded his moDey, which was refused. Then he “went for” the pedlar of greenbacks and took possession of his valise as security. pleasant little fight occurred, in which some ialf dozen participated. But for the presence o some of Maislial Parker’s force there would have been a lively time Struck by Lwhtkwg.-Schooner Mahaska of Portland was .truck by lightning at Ports mouth a few days since. Capt jllake wbo on the point of entering the cabin at the time was knocked down the 8tairs. He „the first thing he knew he was sluing flat tl)e cabin floor. No damage was done to the vessel. Corpus CHRisn.-The fest.vai of Corpus Cbristi was observed at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception yesterday with great pomp. In the morning the rite of confirmation wa3 administered to 800 children. In the even ing High M&sb was celebrated. The altar was brilliantly lighted and the music was vary flu*. Raid on Gambling Houses.—At half-past ten last night, Marshal Parker with deputies Bridges cud Williams, and the day police force, with search warrants.made two raids up on well known gambling houses in this city. A Press reporter fell in with the passe, which moved at a quick step down Myrtle to Cumber land, to Preble, aud there deployed about the St. Jamee, on the latter street. An outpost saw the uniforms, and ran into the house, fol lowed quickly by Marshal Parker aud a half dozen tneu. la the first room there was a large crowd of sporting men, The door to the room above was locked, but deputy Willi ams, with some implements, quickly opened it,aud on the stairs found one of the g mtlemen who belong, ed to the room above, who bad been disturbed in their little game. Up stairs was found a fa ro bank and other gambling implements,which were seized and taken to the station; and Frank Bosworth, alias chief “banker,"of the institu tion,and Edward L Kimball were arrested and lodged at the station last night. In the back room of the front floor of the St. James, were a number of bloated looking fellows, selling pools They were Boston parties, and looked as though hard work aud short fare would make them supremely wretched. They had piles of greenbacks as did Mr. Bosworth The next raid was made on the rooms at No. 114 Preble street. These were dark and the door was locked. Deputy Williams applied his implements aud several men made their way by the aid of a dark iautern, to the head of the stairs, and in the front room on the left, found a faro bank aud other gambling implements unknown to the general reporter. These were taken to the station, aud George Holbrook, “dealer,” was arrested. The raid was entirely successsul. Indeed,we thiuk that this class of sporting fraternity and their friends, the pickpockets, will conclude that this city is not a promising field for opera tions.

She would not take no for an answer. Her ap peal was irresistible, and the mau of dollars was obliged to produce ono for her, when suggestingly she remarked, “yon don’t want any change back, do you?” Of course the gentleman said no, as he departed, and the girl remarked, “another seventy-five cents for the Hospital.” Uloodgood.—Harry Bloodgood had as is us ual with him, a fine bouse and a delighted audi ence at Music Hall last evening.

The decision will be rendered iu a few days. vul ue Nmiemrnt of Oen. nitvi.. Gen. Davis, in conversation win, u special correspondent of the Bulletin on the loth inst., .rave the following statement: W hen I arrived mi the Held I found the troops engaged in war with a band of Indians, outlaws and murder ers, wards of the Government who had revolted against its authority. They were lighting: merci lessly, neither giving nor expecting quarters, r then thought that captives taken in the tuture should be executed on the spot, as the surest aud speediest method of settling the Modoc problem; wli^ti captured while fighting against the military forces of the United States, and as a separate uation and tribe I was disposed to deal with them accordingly. Since their cap ture I have ascertained that the authorities of Jackson county, Oregon, have found indict ments against certain members of the baud. I did not deem it proper to turn them over to the civil courts because they were at war against the Government at the. time the murders upon which the indictments are based were commit ted; also for the reason that after their capture they were prisoners of the Government and not Jirectlv amenable to civil laws. During my com maud here I have observed that the cit izens, when desiring protection for person and property or indemnification for loss, invariably appeal to the authority of the United States, but now that the war is over and the marauders captives, both public and local authorities want to take the punishment of the offenders into their own hands. The threats of the people ana the recent bloody act in this neighborhood, when four old defenceless captives, en route from Fairchild’s ranche to this camp, were murdered by civilians, indicate that trial by civil law would be a useless farce. The people have made up then* minds that the prisoners are guilty. It is suggested that a military commission be ordered to try the criminals. If the idea is carried out the officers composing the court should be of high rank aud raeu who have had no immediate connection with the Modoc difficulty. Such a commission would probably try each case separately. It will re quire about six months to perform the work, to say nothin:; of the expense involved iu such p.ocecdiugs to the Government, besides every body, civic as well as military, knows that the Iudiaus are guilty of murder iu the first de gree and ought fc> be hanged. I thought to avoid the unnecessary expense of the farce ot a trial d.v doing me woik myseu. Owing to the dilatory manuer in which the Modocs were treated by those in charge at the beginning of these difficulties the Indians ob tained the fearful advantages over us. They slaughtered so many people that the country was astonished, even shocked, and now fear they will get the advantage in the closing scenes. This same fear was disturbing the minds of the citizens of the frontier. Justice has already been very tardy and its corain® is approachiug from so many different directions and in such questionable bape aud garb, that 1 doubt her success in meeting the requirements of the case. The Indians do uot r< cognize the jurisdiction of civil or military courts, because they are incapable of understanding their workings. These Modocs cannot comprehend what is meant by court. They have been inter rogated on that subeect. They would regard a court trial with its technicalities, testimony, etc , as a kind of jugglery, and if convicted and seniencod to death, could not be made to understand that Justice figured iu tne business at ail. They believe they have committed deeds that merit death; iu fact, are real mur derers; have daily expected to bo banged. They believe the military have the power and right to inflict punishmeut. The murders and anests occurred in Oregon and California, and the case is badly mixed.— My proposed course would have settle the ques tion. By a single stroke tbegordion knot was to be cut. The Indians are cooped ud in tents, men, women and children, guilty ana innocent, fearing a massacre all the time. They must re main in this conditiou of suspense for mouths. I had procured lumber, chains, rope and tackle aud all the parapernalia of cxecutim, and had select Friday last as the doomsday. Thursday afternoon I drew up this declaration of charges aud read it to Jack later in the day. Headquarters Department of Columbia, iu the field, Tule Lake, Col., June 12. “Jack,”—Siuce the white meu first began to travel through, 01 settle in the country occu pied by the Modocs, a people of which you claim to be one of the chiefs, tne Modocs have been known as a baud of merciless robbers and muruerers. The history of your tribe is filled with accounts of murders of Pe white race. Even among your Indian neighbors, you are known as a domineering and tyrannical tribe. Old settlers iu the couiitry report as many as three huunred murders committed by your people within the limits of the present genera tion, Along the shores of the beautiful litte lake in the view of which we now stand, are the graves of over sixty victims of Modoc barbarity, all mn~dered by your immediate ancestors iu brutal acts. They were Deaceful emigrant men, womeu and cbiliireu, passing quietly through the country, on tue public highway. For these main crimes, no adequate punishment has ever been visited on the guilty, as a tribe, or even individually upon the country, The govern ment has tacitly overlooked them. A few years ago, regardless of these acts of treachery, it gave you a reservation land for a home,where if you chose, you could have remuiued and en joyed the bounti '8of the government unmoles ted. You all went upon the reservation thus provided, and part of your tribe have removed; but you and your hand seem to have preferred the war path. You left the reservation, you spumed the kindness of the government, and even resisted the soldiers iu the execution of their duty, while endeavoring to force you back to the reservation, you hastened to fight, emu lating the bloody deeds of your fathers. You again strewed the shores of Tule Lake with the slain victims of your bloody baud. All those victims were peaceful, unsuspecting citizens, aud were slaughtered while at their daily avo cations. You then fled to your stronghold, tue Lava Beds, prepared for war, aud defied the power of the government. Still, the President at Washington, ordered the soldiers to desist until the peace commissioners could have a talk with you, and if possible, avoid sheddiug more blood. Their efforts were fruitless. Af ter much delay aud many attempts at concilia tion, ou their part, you decoyed the commis sioners into your bauds Armed or unarmed, t' ese acts have placed you aud your band out side rlie rules of civilized warfare, in other words, you have made yourselves outlaws, aud as such, my arrival here as the successor of Gen. Cauby, (whom you murdered with your owu hands,) 1 have made unreuiit iug war up on your race aud upon you, u util at last you have been captured, after much expense to the government, aud the loss of many valuable lives. Now that I have recounted to you your history aud that of your tribe, the receut acts of yourself and band, I will close this interview by informing you that I have this day directed that you aud *your confederates, members of your band, be executed to-morrow at sunset, in presence of the troops, your people aud the as sembled citizens of the county. While I was preparing a list of those I In tended to execute, a courier arrived with in structions from Washington: “Hold the pris oners until further orders.” All know that we have captured the Modocs, and they will quickly learn the news if the death penalty is inflicted. Tin chastisement would r suit in mutual beueflt to bo; h Indians and whites. With the prestige the troops have gained, we could do great good by such a cam F“'hu* _ UETROK»MMjl€AL.

On the 27th, a Khivan’s force attacked the Russian van guard near Chalaat and a sharp engagement took I dace during which two Russian colonels were idled. The Khivau’s were finally defeated and retreated precipitately.
