Portland, May 4, 1876. 1118 Connecticut Anction. The disgraceful sale of a Senatorsbip by tbe Connecticut Democrats has provoked a burst of just indignation all over the land. The scandal is a national one. Never before has a political party thrown a high office in to the market and openly sold its favors to a corruptionist. The bargain is a striking com mentary on tkesincerity of that party which is seeking the control of the government under pretext of an intention to purify the public ser vice and elevate the standard of official mor ality. Democratic profession and Democrat ic practice are as wide apart as the coles. While the Job Trotter oi the Argus is weep ing buckets of tears over the corruption of the , civil service and the favoritism of the President, his party wherever it has gained power, has put the offices within its gift up at public veudue, and Senatorships and seats in Congress are knocked down to the highest bidders. While the Argus discourses of the need of men of talent and integrity in the high places of the land its party is choosing to office men whose only recommendation is their wealth, and who are made party lead' ers not Cause of ability or long service, but leca a * they are willing to spend their money freely in bribing voters. The Demo crats control Connecticut, and having no longer need of disguise, show their true char acter. Should they get control of Maine the same spectacle would be presented. We should see rich men whose only claim to party support is their willinguess to contrib ute to an election tund, buyiEg of the De mocracy seats iu Congress, governorships and other desirable positions. A Democratic triumph in Maine, as in Connecticut and elsewhere, would be followed by shameless political corruption. The latest developments of the Connecticut senatorial canvass present the transaction in a worse light than heretofore. It seems that the bidding between Messrs. Barnum and English ran pretty close for a time. These gentlemen contributed to the coffers of the state committee, until they had each given §20,000. Then the election took place and the state was carried. Thereupon each be took himself to buying up members of the legislature, and in Urn sort of purchase Mr. Barnum was apparently the more liberal of the two, (or he got the prize. Precisely how much he paid is not known, but it must have been a good round sum. The Connecticut Democrats ought to be satisfied at any rate, for §50,000 isn’t a b ad price for a seat in the Senate these hard times when the opportuni ties for making one’s self whole are so poor. The wanton waste of money by the Dem ocratsin their absurd navy-yard investigations calls forth this rebuke from the New York Times: Fifty thousand dollars is the price our Re form Democrats will have us pay for ttie precious testimony they have taken regarding the navv-yards from Kittery to Mare Is land The stuff itself will not be ready till logg after adjournment, when its value will bo precisely—nothing. This is a beautiful specimen of the talent of me nemocrats ior me come an or investiga tion, which enables ti)eiu to sp jpd more money iu hunting up an alleged fraud than the fraud itself, if it exists, has cost. An ordinary way of making an investigation would have been to so sift the witnesses aud the testimony as to have found out wbat was worth printing, and then to have printed it in such form that it would sustain the committee in their conclu sions. But this would have been common place and cheap, and the Democrats wanted something expensive and imposing. They have certainly attained it. A subscriber has brought to this office a copy of the Argus printed in the year 1805. That journal has increased in size and me chanical appearance daring the last seventy years, but in many respects is much the same. Then, as now, it accused its opponents of gross frauds aud called them thieves aud scoundrels; then, as now, it circulated slan ders about eminent public men, calling Alex ander Hamilton “a filthy adulterer who drew money from the Treasury to pay for his un lawful pleasures;” then, as now, its editorial colurnu consisted of a long extract from another paper, prefaced by the fewest possible words of introduction. Whatever material change seven decades have wrougli the spirit of the Scarboro’ biblo remains the same. The recent auction iu Connecticut at which a seat in the United States Senate was knocked down to Mr. Barnum calls forth the following just remark from the Norwich Bulletin: However great may have been the corruption of the Republican party duiing the last decade, not a single instance can be recalled where one lias been selected for any office, high or low, on account of the rnooey he spent to carry an elec tion. Much complaint is made at Philadelphia of the regulation which compels every visitor to pay a fifty-cent note. While everybody sees the unreasonableness of requiring the gate keeper to make change, no one can see why a dollar bill should not be taken for two ad missions, or a two dollar bill for four. Hendricks is reported as regarding the Democratic outlook so hopeless that he has lost all desire to bo candidate for the presi dency. That Connecticut business has de stroyed liis confidence. England is growing enthusiastic over the refusal of the Prince of Wales to attend a bull-fight in Madrid, and forgets that he graced with his presence a pig-sticking at at Baranda and elephant duelling at Delhi. Mr. Thurman’s Ohio frieuds claim 139 of the 250 delegates elected to the Democratic State Convention, with the staunchest Thur man counties still to be heard from. The Cincinnati Enquirer admires their impu dence. I Political News. Ogdensburg, N. Y., elected a Democratic mayor last year, by 50 majority, aud new James Armstrong, Republican, by 312 The couuty conventions in Missouri seem to be sending delegates to the State Conven tion about equally divided between Blaine aud Bristow. The Michigan delegates at large to the Cin cinnati convention are uninstructed, but two-thirds of them are known to prefer Mr. Blaine. The Indianapolis Journal claims at least 200 voles for Senator Morton on llic first bal lot in the Cincinnati Convention. And on the second, it predicts he will receive a large accretion of strength from Pennsylvania, Ohio and other states. The Cleveland Leader predicls that ex Cov. William Allen will receive the support of Ohio at St. Louis for the Presidency, and that the delegation from the state will stand up and yell itself red in'the face for the re peal of resumption and the adaptation of the currency to the wants of trade. Iowa seems to be the only stale which has a well defined sentiment in favor of Gen. Sherman for the Republican candidate. They seem to regard it a3 a hapless case there, however, tor the Des Moines Register remarks with a sigh: “The state will prob ably go for Blaine, but it would like miglitv well to have a chance to so for Sherman.” Hon. J. P. Si. John refuses to accept the temperance nomination for Governor of Kansas unless it is ratified by the Republican State Convention. He says that be is a Re publican as well as a temperance man from principle, and believes that tbe great cause ot temperance can best be advanced by and through the Republican party. Tbe Chicago Tribune denies that it has at tacked Mr. Blaine, and sijys it shall support him if nominated, “because of his intellectual ability and vigor, because of his sterling pat riotism, because of h.s services to the country during his successive terms in Congress, and because of the ripe experience in public af fairs which he will bring to the office of Pics, ideut,” The Ne.v York Express, the straight out and out metropolitan Democratic organ, has come out in opposition to Gov. Tilden far President. It declares that “New York has no claims for the nomination this year, and common courtesy toward the other States should prevent any being presented.” The governors pretensions as a reformer are con temptuously set aside as being no better founded than those of other prominent Dem ocrats. _ [Correspondence of the Press.] The Centennial Exhibition. Hon I fir* iVcn Thing tVork.-tlniur nf the Centennial— Textiles. Philadelphia, May 11, 1870. The readers of tbe Pbess have ere this pe rmed the various accounts of the opening cere monies of the Centennial Exposition, but the ' most imaginative of them, from any picture of words cm get uo adequate conception of tho magnitude of tho ceremonies. First, tho crowd cf itself was au immensity. Oa the grounds, as far as the eye could see, there was one compact mass of people. All the streets leading to tbe grounds were simply courses along which poured floods of people. The thousands of street cars, omnibuses, hacks aDd other cartisges could not accommodate but a small portion of them. The trains from all di rections have been loaded down with people since Monday morning. All this accumulated crowd, when the gales were opened Wednts day poured itself in at every avenue. It got ahead of police and militaiy. Indeed, pilice and military could not holdback a crowd press ing up in a solid mass as far back as one could see. To tho most of the mas3 of spectators it must have been merely a spectacle. They coold doubtless se? Mr. Thomas leadiug his 150 musicians and could see the 950 singers who formed tho strong back-ground to the orchestra, but not a quarter could hear a note of that magestic music which was well worth tho journey from Maine to hear. Tbe conclus ion of the exercises when President Grant de clared in bis matter-of-fact way that tho Ex position is opened was a proper climax. Gen. Hawley waved his handkerchief as a signal for il.a H ... ,.r ,1„, TTnIi..l Ct.i.... ... ...... tlie center of tbe main build;og, followed by the standards of other cations, the chorus aud orchestra broke forth in the Hallelujah chorus, the chimes of tells on Machinery Hall pealed forth our nat’onal airs, aud cannon O') the sur rounding heights made the ground tremble with their announcement of the great event, and above all, drowning all were (the deafeniDg huzzas of the immense concourse of people. Having spent two more days about tbe grounds I am now more than ever convinced that the Centennial Exposition is a very big thing. Somebody in Maine wrote one of the Commissioners askiDg bow.many days it won Id take to see the whole thing. Idon’tkcow wbft the official replied, but I should h tve ad vised him to stay at home if he coull not be satisfied without being sure that be has seen everything worthy of notice. One can tee a great many of the chief objects of interest in a day, many more in a week, avd can find some thing of interest to study at the end of a month. What his Maiue dono fo>- the Exhibition? A good deal, but not so much as she should aud could without much t ffort if producers had seen the importance of sending their goods b, fore tbe exhibition as they mnstwbeu they visit it.Two gentlemen were passing through tbe cas es of goods in the Maine space this morning, when one remarked that be used to think that all Maine could produce was shingles. He ad mitted that his mind had undergone a change. I am sorry to admit that a great many people have an impression that Maine is so far away toward the northeast that nothing except the roughest articles are there produced. If there had been united action among our produotrs, a good deal would have been accomplished in educating the rest of the country respce:ing the variety, importance and value of Maine pro ducts. Several enterprising correspondents have already seut forward lists of Maine entries, but these are so impetfect that it would not b« creditable to print them in their present form. In tbe southeast corner of Main Hall may be fouud tbe greatest part of tbe textiles contrib uted by Maine. Here also is tbe Maiue head quarters where a book is kept for the reception of the names of Maine visitors and where some Maiue people may always bo found. The di vision of tbe building is “B78.” Over the section is the coat of arms of Maiue surmouu - ed with national standards. From tbe coat of arms over tbe center to tbe posts at either end ate stripes of red, white and blue fringed with gilt aud tustetud.v festooned. This space is lilxliO feet and is filled with six tieis of show eases of goods, all from Maiue factories. THE TEXTILES. % The first case to he seen as one enters from the southeast entrance marked “D” is filled with specimens contributed by Messrs, (loodall of the Sanford Mills, which are marked “plush carriage robes.” Taere are a dozen or more samples.

The designs are verv tasty and the workmanship first class. The" case also con tains samples of Kersey goods. No better or moie attractive goods in that line are to ha lound in the building. The second case iu the tier contains samples ot the handiwork of the Worumbu Manufact uring Co. of Lisbon Palis. There are about a dozen samplee of tine black and blue beavers, cassirueres and doeskius. The goods are very nice and with different tags could be sold for the best imported.

Philadelphia, May 13.—The attendance at the Exposition to-day numbered between 40,000 and 130,000. Work on the grounds between George’s Hill and Machinery Hall si still very backward, and it will probably take some wee as to get tho paths in order.

Dr. Furness presiding. Addresses were made by the chair* main. Geo. W. Biddle, John W. Forney, Dr. Bellows of New York, and Col. Fitzgerald. A series of resolution were adopted expressing the opinion that the opening of the exhibition ou the first day of the week, either free or at reduced rates wili promote the cause of re ligion and morality, as well as the happiness of the people, by providing a place where all mav contemnlate the handiwork of creation a* u,eil as the achievements of hnman industry and skill and the meeting was enthusiastic through out. The resolutions were adopted amid great applause. A committee of thirteen was ap pointed to urge upon the managers of the ex hibition the early adoption of the rules iu accordance with the purpose entertained by the meeting.
