[Bayard Taylor’s (May 20) Letter to Tribune.]H The Yienna Exposition. —— A GENERAL REVIEW OF THE SHOW. The fine weather continues, aBd a new spirit co ves over the world's show, and everything connected with it. The arrange ment of articles within the great building is now so far advanced, that the completion of the lacking departments can make but little difference 1b the general effect. Having seen a'l the memorable exhibitions of the kind. siDce the first in Hyde park, in 1851, I ven ; ture to sketch the characteristic features cf • each, in the way of comparison. As a single grand picture, nothing has since equaled the world’s fair In Hyde park; the building, 1600 feet long, with all its treasures of art and industry, was visible at one glance, and from every part of it. In machinery and crude products it was deficient. Eastern Europe and the Orient were scantily repie sen ted; but all that was displayed ss filled the great spate that it pi educed an impres sion of infinite richness and variety. The first Paris exhibition of 1855. and the second London of 1862 were crowded arid rather be wildering. The buildings were nigh, with upper galleries for the lighter waies, the aichitecture was pretentious and not partic ularly imposing, and there was scarcely space enough in either for the visitor, to move with comfort on a crowded day. I only saw the fair building in New York, at the end of 1853 afier most of the goods bad been re moved In design, it was much superior to either of the former, although so much smaller in dimensions For practical ar rangement there has been nothing like the Paris exposition of 1867. The general effect was sacrificed to this feature, no doubt wise ly. The concentric ellipses, beginning with machinery at the outside and ending with the fine arts in the center, each country cutting through them like a broader or narrower slice of pie, formed a plan which was instantly understood; and, knowing it, each visitor could find exactly what he wanted to see. There were no 'imposing vistas, no grand combinations of form and color, but a thor ou'.’bly scientific order. It was a fuller repre sentation of the industry of all nations than any of the exhibitions which preceded it. Here the first characteristic which strikes a visitor is the vast scale upon which the show his been arranged. Yet, although the ma n building is nearly double the length ot that in Hyde park, it produce i nothing like the effect. Owing to the comparative low ness of the wings, a»d the great higlit of the show-frames and temples and pyramids which fill them, the eye finds no vista. Your aching feet tell you the distances you trav erse, but your vision is constantly checked, bewildered and deceived. Even the rotunda, which gains by i‘s vast span nearly all which it loses by its squatty cliaracter, is deformed by the strange, irregular, inharmonious piles of productions cumbering its floor. Scarcely one of the transepts is visible from its junc tion with the wing to its extremity. On the other hand the space betweeu the cases is so ample that 50,000 persons might circulate wiriiin the building without much jostling. Machinery having its own hall, agriculture its dozen special pavilions, and art its detached temple, the internal arrangement is greatly simplified, and will be found sufficiently prac t* uut amviita aim nr-nmi ejuiupr . are at least as well represented as on former I occasions, ell Europe e»sr of a line drawn from the Rhine to the Mediterranean, with Egypt, the Oilent and Asia, make their best and most varitd display. This wid be the main point of distinction between the pres ent and all the former “World's Fairs.'’ At Paris, in 1807, the idea of Illustrating the ar chitecture of different countries bv detatched buildings was, for the first time, carried into effect. Here the attempt is repeated, and on a much larger scale, since the available space is three or four times as great. The limits of the champ de Mars, however, while they crowded the edifices much nearer together, rendered it possible to turn the intervening space into a finished park. In the Prater this cannot be done. Only the square of six or eight acres b tween the south portal ami the rotunda, and the sn aller garden-court between the east portal aud the hall of arl are carefully laid out and set with shrubbery and flowers. All the rest of the very exteu sive grounds is in a comparatively rough state, and must remaiu so. The soil Is a loose, sandy deposit of the Danube, so low that it holds water like a sponge wheu it rains, and turns into fine dust after two or three days of sun. Nevertheless,the • wo or three hundred severed buildings, when fin ished, will form by far the moat picturesque and Interesting feature of the exhibition to most visitors. Within the bnilding the work still goes 0D> but in many department* them are signs of 1 ts approaching end. In ihe United States ill is activity; spaces are allotted, boxes dis rilmtcd, and the skeleton form of the dis llav can at last be traced. I think the work ivill be for tbe most part finished, so that we iba.ll not be much behind England and Prance. We shall have tbe best exhibition ive have ever made, except in art. We shall Hicupy tw ice as much space as in Paris, aud ■liow a much greater variety of objects. Switzerland is still the only country iu ccm plete order. England and France, by hard work, have nearly finished their portions of the main aisles, but toeir transepts are cum bered with unopened boxes. The same may be sa.d of Italy, Holland and Germany. In wine, Austria and Hungary tako i ’ n both, but little more is necessary '.£"*• .

The first name on the list was “Sir Henulton Fish!’ Of the eastern na tions, counting Russia as one, Greece and Tuuis are just finishing their work, while Turkey, Persia, Japan and Egypt will each require ab ut eight or ten days more. The nearer part of each transept is now opened to the public, and prohibitory ropes aie drawn across the remainder, instead of the former hoard feuce. We can at least get sight of this picturesque end of the great building, and inspect somewhat more than half of iu contents. The Turkish trails* pt Is the only one which gives an unobstructed vista to tbe eye. The vaulted roof is draped, from one end to tbe other, with immense carpeU of ail deep and rich dyes; palm trees (with rather shriveled plumes) staud between all tbe win dows, an«’ between these again, life size fig ures, in couples, illustrating tbe ethnology and the costumes of the Ottoman empire. Lading a Mlssl-slppi Steamboat The following is an extract from a Denver letter of the Danbury Newt man to his pa per: The river is much broader at this point than I ever expected to see It, but *-e cannot always have things our own way in this world. The cbanut I is about three feet deep opposite this place; I don’t know the exact width of the river, but there is no doubt but that tbe water is as thick as It Is broad. Tbe traveler should turn it over with his foot and so look at both sides of it. Ail was bustle on deck wbeo I got there. The boat was taking on its freight, and about thirty lively negroes, and one very excited and awfully profane white man were doing the business. That white man was a study. He was the mate of tbe vessel, and what he didn't kuow about rhetoric could be held on the point of a knife blade by a nervous man. The thirty negroes had all they could well attend to to keep up with bis uew oaths and roll on the casks. Without auy cessation they bobbed from the boat to the shore, and from tbe shore back to tLe boat, and all the while that Mississippi elocutioni«t danced around and swore. When I got on tbe boat 1 sat down on my baggage and watched that man. Being a resident ot New England I thought I knew something’ °l wickedness, but 1 was mistaken. The negr^** were unitormly dressed in pants, shirt and hj** Son)e 01'the hats wete ornamented with differ.'01 colored ribtons; others, again, contained but * *in'P!e brass plate-the tiade mark of a retired f?n'nTlley werc <lrlven N'we sheep, first to the shore and then back to tbe boat. Th* least hesitation, the slightest misstep, was noted by the orator and promptly incoiporat ed inio bis discourse. He couldn’t have been ,T,,re tbeV bis own fathers, which it is not likely they were. Offensive Ad ertUing. The Massachnsett. Legislature has passed a law against the defacement of uatural scenery. This, we take it, applies to tbe painting of advertisements upon rocks, unit ing them to boards upon trees and the gen era! obtrusx>n of the notices of quack tot-di cine vendors along tbe lines of our railroads. It is quite lime such a Jaw was enacted in al our New England States. Some of the very finest bits of landscape are rendered worthless, comparatively, to tbe observer by the daubs of paint thrust upon sight in or on tbe most salient point. We have in mind now a spot where within a few rods there is. in the summer and au tumn, a combination of beauty seldom seen. The water, the flowers, tbe drooping bushes, tbe eve green trees and the back ground of gray rock form a picture bright, refreshing and attractive. But on this rock, over which the green vines and red variegated leaves trail so grace fully in the September days, and wbicb of it self is a conspicuous object, tbeie is a sprawl in . parti colored advertisement of Indian bitters. As if tbe fences and tbe boulders ai d barns were ni t enough, these “t< (lows of the baser sort” take possession of every available spot, regardless alike of the laws of trespass and aesthetics. If the people would enter into a solemn league and covenant never to purchase any thiug so advertised, the evil would soon be cured, but as it is vve shall probably have no spot ot purely “natural scenery” within tbe vision of the railway traveller. Such an offense against good taste ought not, however, to go un whipped of justice.— Providence Journal. French Love and Patriotism.—The Gaulcis, in announcing that a young lady of rank recently took a veil in a Parisian nun nery, thinks it proper to “reveal a fact” which it evidently thinks too good to be lost. Her father's chateau during the war became the bead-quarters of seme twenty Prussian officers. One day, on sitting down to dinner, “one o( them forgot himself so far as to clasp tbe young lady round be waist. She took up a long knife and stabbed bite to the heart. She was arrested, but released in a day or two on the order ot Prince Frederic Karl.” Ano ther s'ory Is that an officer, who fought most gallantly at Metz, was sent a prisoner t» Germauy, and w hile there fell in love with and married a German girl. The oiher dav be returned to Paris, and went to bis <lub as usual; but to his surprise he was immediate ly expelled on the grounu that be had mar ried into a Prussian family, Zenas Thompson, Jr., SUCCESSOR TO J.
