Pimples and Humors of the Face. Reason should teach us that a blotchy, rough or pimpled skin depends entirely upon an internal cause and no outward application can ever cure the defect.

SMITH, Secretary. Portland, May 4, 1876. Tiie latest device at fancy dress parties is . for ladies to get themselves up as icicles—and then presumably some fellow comes along and gives out that he is a July sun, and melts them. The Tennesee Democrats are not content with declaring against resumption. They clearly pronounce for inflation and that the currency already withdrawn shall be reissued. Naturally enough they support Hendricks. Captain Lay’s infernal machine has raised great expectations in the minds of many Naval officers. It is a submarine cigar shaped craft, carrying a barrel and a half of dynamite—enough to have blown the Span ish Armada into splinters. The machine is now being tested at Washington. THE-latest testimony against Mr. Blaine like that which preceded it, is poor evi dence. Heretofore the men to whom the scandalous stories have been attributed have promptly denied them, and doubtless are as ready to do so now. The investigation has taken on a bouffe character. The Man with the Fork in his Stomach is before the public again. The surgeon who rescued the fork gave it to a scientific society, and now the man has sued for its recovery. He says his victuals don’t taste good unless he takes his daily fork with them, not as a mat ter of etiquette but digestion. Tins time it is Schell, assistant doorkeeper of the House, who is in trouble. When his grocer presented a bill for provisions Schell knocked him down. This Democratic way of paying debts is not relished at Washington, and Republicans are demanding the ruffian's discharge. These House employes appear to be anything but a nice set of men. If anyone cares to see how malicious and mendacious a newspaper can be, we invite them to compare the special of the Boston Herald relating to Mulligan’s testimony re specting Mr. Blaine, and the full official testi mony as sent by the Associated Press agents and printed in full by the Boston Advertiser and Journal. Comment on such journalistic indecency is superfluous. The spread of the soft money delusion in North Carolina has been effectually checked. A North Carolina editor did it with his little pen. He reminded his readers of the time in the history of the Confederacy when the currency was so depreciated that a gallon of apple brandy cost a hundred dollars, and he asked them if they wanted to see such terri ble times again. Tiie increase'of attendance upon the Cen tennial the past few days will greatly encour age the friends ot that great enterprise who feel that they are its sponsors. This is doubt less largely due to the flattering accounts of the Exhibition which returning visitors in variably take to their homes, and also to the fact that people in all parts of the country have learne'd that it need not cost one a dol lar a minute to remain in Philadelphia, but about the same expenditure of currency re quired in any other city full of hotels and boarding houses, where there is no World’s Fair this year. One Portlander of moderate means, who has spent a week ia Philadelphia expresses the determination to take another seven days of sight seeing on the Exhibition grounds later in the season. Mb. E. G. Spauldixg has often been called the father of the greenback. His opinion of the child was given before the Banker’s Association at Philadelphia Tues day. He tells us that the paper currency “sprung from the dire necessity of a gigantic civil war.” The author of the first legal tender act describes the notes which were issued under it as “debt created in the ab sence of ready money.” “It was simply a temporary war currency.” “The real pur pose and object of the legal tender act was to fund the debt incurred for war expenses.” It was long afterward that the monstrous notion that these promises to pay money were really money, that the evidence of a debt cancelled the debt itself, began to pre vail. The great mistake of the war, he says, was “the abrogation of the right to fund the greenback currency into gold tenders.” Let t.iiat mistake hn rpot.ifipd as snnn na rtr\ccikl<* The New York Times has the following just comment on our leading candidate tor the place of Representative to Congress from this district which will be pleasant reading for those who desire capable and creditabl0 representation for the district. Mr. Reed’s selection would be a decided step toward bet ter, stronger and higher things in politics. The Times says: The selection of Representatives in the 1'oty-lifth Congress is already engaging the at tention of the Republicans of Maiue. In the Second District Hon. William I*. Frye haa been nominated with great unanimity. In the First District there is, apparently, a desire for a change, and the name of Hon. Thomas B. Reed, of Portland, is being urged with much force, and good prospect of acceptance for the succession. Mr. Reed, although yet a young man, has had considerable experience in public life as a member of tbe Legislature and in oth er official positions. He has setved as Attor ney General of the Slate, and as City Solicitor of Portland. In these varied duties he has acquitted himself with credit, aud it is doubt ful if there is in tlie district anyone better fit ted tliau he to make an efficient Representa tive in Congress. He is, moreover, an honest, earnest, upright mail, atid he has been a Re publican from principle his whole life long. Should lie he chosen, the Republicans of his district will add a strong man to the delegation from their State. About Blaine. If we may judge by Republican opinion in Pennsylvania, after Gov. Hartranft has had his chance, an overwhelming percentage is in favor of the statesman from Maine.—Phila delphia Press. That Blaine is the favorite candidate for President of the Republicans of Minnesota has long been evident to all who have had any opportunity to sound public sentiment or to ascertain its general drift. But all doubts on this subject if any existed, were dissipated by the action of the Republican State Con vention, which was almost unanimously for Blaine.—St. Paul Pioneer-Press. Before the Cincinnati convention meets we predict that the matter will be settled so that the only question will be. Who shall go on the ticket with Blaine? Mr. Wheeler of New York or Mr. Hayes of Ohio will be available and acceptable. With such a tick et the field can be swept, and Judge Davis, who is likely to be the Democratic candidate, will have a chance to remain on the bench or retire to private life.—Fitchburg Sentinel. The strength of Mr. Blaine is remarkable at the West. California, Oregon, Nebraska. Kansas and Minnesota, as well as Idaho and Montana, have declared for him by resolution. The vote of Iowa will doubtless be accorded to him. From beyond the Mississippi and the Missouri the states and territories come almost in a solid body for him. Illinois and Wisconsin with hardly a break, and Michi" gan by a majority reach out for him. The West, where is Republican strength and progress and growth, finds its first choice for President at the far East.—Albany Journal, It seems to us that Mr. Blaine’s word as to the value of his property ought to be taken. That he would have been a rich man if he had chosen business pursuits, to which he is admirably adapted, during these twelve or fifteen of the best years of his life, does not seem to admit of any argument; for a man of his great mental and physical force, keen knowledge of human nature, aud indomita ble industry, would have commanded success in almost any field. Mr. Blaine is not our candidate, but we believe in fair play, and deprecate the malicious persecution he is re ceiving.—Boston Globe. When an ordinary lie has been fairly knocked in the head, eviscerated, quartered, exposed and buried, and a certificate given and entered, it usually dies. It is a peculiar ly of political lies that, they will endure all this and quicklime, and still whisk about as nimbly the day after as though they had been proved in the highest court the day before. So the Democratic press continue to circulate the story that Mr. Blaine was guilty in the alleged misappropriation of Little Rock bonds as charged, and continues to cite Rob inson of Arkansas as authority.—Philadel phia North American. xw vauuiu man, aa it seems IU US, Lilli reaU the history of the Blaine charges and investi gations which have taken so much space in the newspapers for several weeks past, with out reaching a conclusion favorable to hit en tire innocence. No open accusation has been made that he has not freely and frankly met and answered; and in every instance he has driven his accusers back irom the open charge to the safer refuge of suggestion, hint, and insinuation. The very thing has occur red which the Tribune a lew weeks ago pointed out as possible to happen from the overzeal of those gentlemen who claimed to be Secre tary Bristow’s special advocates and support ers ; they have aroused popular sympathy for Mr. Blaine, and have put him in the strong position of having been already under the heaviest possible fire, and so have given him the leading place among candidates.—N. Y. Tribune. The testimony in Washington yesterday in the Blaine matter is nearly an exact repeti tion of the Harrison failure. One gentleman /of this city swore that the remarks attributed to him in a Boston newspaper were never ut tered, and that he knew nothing of the trans action concerning which the inquiry was made. As the newspaper which misreported him has vouched for his veracity, we may ac cept his sworn statement as true. Another gentleman was in a position to know about the matter, aDd did know; and he says Col. Scott’s testimony is true, as all candid peo ple have supposed it was. A third, who was in a position to know something, but not everything, about the Fort Smith transac tions gives hearsay evidence which if true, would be damaging to Mr. Blaine. But as the others, with fuller knowledge and with equally good reputations, contradict him flat ly, there can be no hesitation in deciding which story to accept.—Boston Advertiser. We have not opposed Mr. Blaine. We have regarded him as one of the two candi dates who were to be preferred to all others, and if Mr. Bristow appeared to us to be the stronger and more advisable person to nomi nate, we by no means considered that it would be impossible to rally a majority ol the American people to the support ol Mr. Blaine. We have regarded that in cer tain pivotal States, such as Ohio in Oc tober and New York in November Mr. Bristow would place success beyond doubt; but we have never thought that with Mr. Blaine there would be perilous danger.of defeat. He is a man of large and liberal views, a great favorite with multi tudes of people, widely known and admired, a conspicuous man in the history of the last fifteen years, an admirable executive officer, a warm-blooded, genial and experienced statesman, who would adorn the office of President. The Chicago Tribune will cheer fully and enthusiastically support him If be be nominated at Cincinnati.—Chicago Trib une. _ News and Other Items. The Rev. John S. C.

Exhibition Echoes. The Art Gallery-PtUllap mud stata. ary.-The Haiae Picture_Florvn tine Hassles-The British School,_. General Notes. Germantown, May 29, 1876. lo the Editor of the Press: It was my last day at Fairmount Park, and we first directed onr steps toward the Art Gal lery. Memorial Hall cost the oity of Philadel phia and state of Pennsylvania $1,500,000, and» after being placed at the disposal of the tennial Commission during the exhib^en, Is to remain permanently and become tb, "recep tacle of an Industrial Art Museum, similar to the South Kensington Museum at London.” vvl The annex, also to be a permanent building, contains at present, I believe, more statuary and a greater number of pictures than the main hall itself. When' the Gallery la in readiness it will be, to cultivated and art-loving people, the finest part of our great exposition. There are some magnificeot paintings here; among them, one of Meissonier’s that would demand days of study. The collection is large and will be an exhibition such as could be found only id a journey abroad. The Austrian pictures are fine, and again and again we come back to one room of them, after wandering among Bnglish and French and Spanish galleries, irresistibly attracted by the beauty, richness and grace pic tured and hung before ns. The catalogue is badly arranged and incomplete. We can find nothing in it and give up in disgust the attempt to do so. The various halls them selves are not all designated by name. Some of the finest collections are not yet unpacked. The best pictures have, some of them—$10,000 pictures—been so injured by parasols and cane and by the indiscriminate handling of visitors, that they have had to be removed, to be re touched; and to provide against tbis abuse, two workmen are busy putting up railings, as a means of protection. So tools are strewn aboat different directions and noise and burry abound. It is bard to derive satisfaction now but for all that, there is a present feast for the eyes and the prospect of greater delights to come. In the outer vestibule are groups of statua ry and additions to the number are being con stantly made. The translation of the subject name of our marble, the head and bust of an Italian peasant woman, is literal at all eventa and doubtless considered fluent It reads ia this way: "Cosiume del dintoeni di Roma," ‘ Custom of the neighboring! of Rome.” I do no know that just here is anything of special note. In one corner are sovsral of Vinnie Ream’s productions. “Miriam.” "Spir it of the Carnival,” "A Boy’s Head,” aod some others. xnu Keuenti utvisiuu is auuittwusii in mis or* der: United States, Canada, France, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Mexi co, Brazil, Argentine Republic. Ot oar own works of art, among much that is of value, there is a great deal of trash and we mise the productions of some of our best artists. There Is nothing of Mr. Ionis’, for example, or o( some other Boston artists that we confidently looked to see; no water color of Mrs. Murray’s. With special interest, of coarse, we viewed Harry Brown’s beautiful picture, “OS the Coast of Maine.” Bad paintings are being re moved and fine ones substituted constantly, and the exhibit finally will do ns great oredit, without a doubt. The Milan and Florence mosaics are exquis ite and a number of fine pieces, as tables wreathed with lovely flowers, cupid’s beads birds and butterflies, are already marked "sold.” Among British pictures in water colors, a critique mentions "Listening to her Lover’s Letter” by F. W. Topbam, “A Morass”—J. Knight: “The Three Friends”—Aluaa Tade ma: "History of an Honest Wife” by the same, ot whom this writer says. Tadema’s charac teristics are, strong accentuation of details, combined with breadth of effect, perfect clear ness, elegance of composition and entire knowledge and unapproachable use ef color. Then the loan collection is prominent and there are paintings belonging to the Queen, by such artists es Daniel Maclise, Sir David Wil kie, John Opie, Charles Stewart Newton. Benjamin West, Sir Joshua Reynolds and Cope. One bears funny criticisms, by the way. In this gallery an English Milor’ stands before the extensive picture of the “Rape of Ganymede,” and murmurs “that’s a fine bir-rd but—” I listened for more bat that was all he said and the tone and manner were in describable. Farther along, a man and his wife were seated directly in front of a bnge fruit piece, in the Norwegian department, one of those things where high color and a profu sion of horticulture are what attract attention, rather thou anything else. “Now that,” said this individual, “is the best thing I ever saw. That suits me. I’ve been silting here half an hour and I’m not tired of looking at it yet” and there was at hand the Ghost 8cene la Macbeth, by Maclise so startling and powerful as to rivet the attention and chain it to the canvass, ur tne prison scene ot Hargunte and Facet and Mephistopbeles tbat makes one shiver to see. Or a painting by S. Duke Fields, of an English dairy maid, “Betty," coming home from the milking, her pail under her arm, half fall of field dasies, and the whole thmg (more than life size it is,) so breezy and bright and full of sunshine that you catch yourself smiling np at the shining eyes and rosy lips tbat seem to send, from the sweet face an answeriog gleam. Or, eren Landseer's "Sick MoDkey," where the mother bolds in her embrace a little beast, so ill tbat it’s eyes are suoken and it’s Darwinian features pinched— the father sitting.serenely on a railing, just behind the pair, absorbed in an orange, his eyes snapping contentedly over the yellow rim ot the frait in which his month and Dose are quite lost—while a second orange is held firm ly In his bind paws. Comical and absurd In the extreme is the effect; and as I say, these are nothing to our friend admiring the frail piece, just as, I dare say, my selections seem to one who knows what is what in art,' rather than merely, tchat l like. One of our genuine "up country," Tankee brethren here the other day was being shewn about the grounds, when suddenly he asked to see the main building. “There, said he, “I told ye so! I knowed Maine would beat ’em all!” The admittance fee of 50 cents, paid for.en trance day after day, amounts to a considera ble sum in the course of weeks, but there are no extra charges as at similar Expositions. You are provided with seats while you are listening to the orchestra, and chairs are at your disposal wherever you find them In the buddings. It is a noticeable fact tbat every thing is done for people’s comfort and con venience. The ladies' dressing room I hap pened to enter, of wbieh there are several la different parts of the main building, is a large, airy room, with comfortable lounges where ladies may lie down and rest, when exhausted by sight seeing; and colored women are in at tendance to see that everything is properly arranged. In the centet is a large marble stand, containing a dozen faucets of drinking water, with a corresponding number of basins for washing the hands. Mirrors, brushes and combs; and all kept so clean and in such good order that we do not hesitate to avail ourselves of the opportunity to rest and refresh our selves. Several times I bad sought this room to rest for an hoar and open my lunch basket, so that I got to know the colored woman ih charge quite well, the acquaintance being helped on doubtless, through the circulating medium of a little currency. One day 1 had been there some time, tired oat with the day's exertion, when I observed a lady, her tace In a fearfully bruised condition, sitting Dear. I learned from Mrs. Darkie that this unfortunate woman had fallen in getting from the train, at the outskirts of the grounds. She was not so badly hart bat that she insisted upon her son and daughter, who had come with her, tak ing advantage of the opportunity and going about to the different halls, for the distance they had come from out of town was consider able, and the un-elfisii creature thought it too uau vug j uuu^ ouuuta iuro vucu iuu os her account. So that ihe sat the day long in the dressing room, while the others wer» making a tour amoog the pretty sights. Toe Doctor came and applied some laudanum and water to the wounded faoe and left her pre senting a rather fantastic appearance, with large bandages on her eyes and nose, though one felt too much sympathy to think of the comicality of aspect. The daughter who was quite dress; and talkative and laughed a good deal oame in occasionally to look after her af flicted parent. At last when the hour arrived for their departure, I heard the daughters aay, with a little nervous giggle, “Well, mother’s been to the Centennial’’! At tbat moment, four men brought in a litter upon which was extended a woman’s form, the head covered with a shawl. There is a hospit al on the grounds and sick people were never brought here,this was a place where we purpose ly fled from the crowded halls for rest and repose so f was much surprised at this and alarmed till I found it was not serious. I was ‘ a weary" and the sight a harrowing one and I turned to iny darkie woman and said, in a despairing tone, Well, for pity’s sake, what is the matter with her? 1 bad detected in this ebony attend ant an aptitude for a foke but was not prepared for the chuckle with which she received my question and replied—“X spose I hadn’t ought to laff—Yah! yah!—bat she’ done fainted!’’ Let me see, I left the Ait Gallery, cot half satisfied with the time 1 had, when the hour for closing oame.
