Is sojourn in Philadelphia and daily to the exposition gives one a Chance to get the sensation of bewilderment attache the a first visit. Viewed As a the exhibition stuns by it immensity h the impression remain that it is Good and very grand Vandao on it a not to aay in what that goodness end Gran consists. Not alone in the variety erf placed pm exhibition not in the Charol the crowds which Dally throng its compartments certainly not because generosity Aad excellence of the a. Eats of the commissioners not be of the facilities offered to see and be bet because it is As a whole harm ool jete to execution is it that Ere enabled to go away after they have examined it in detail with a proper appreciation of its excellence. The main Hall is a bewildering place. On the floor one fails to get an adequate idea of its size the Range of vision being circumscribed by packages of merchandise hurrying crowds add the efforts of the commissioners and exhibitors at ornamentation. It is Only when occupying a Coign of Vantage in the gallery that one gets a just appreciation of its extent. The spectacle is a very interesting one. A City of minature houses archways pagodas imitations of temples Tower and corridors gleams of color from Glass and silverware the gaily painted structures the flags of All nations breathing their respective contributions the people strolling up and Down the passage ways All this makes an interesting spectacle and the lesson it conveys is that of the insignificance of the individual and the greatness of the collective Man. It tends to Dwarf personal vanity to be brought in close Contact with objects and products that represent humanity at Large. It is a matter of Pride and pleasure to record that the United 8t�tes makes a Noble display. It wag to be expected that our people would in Quantity Lead the exhibiting lost but it is Gratifying to amp to in Quality and in workmanship in Fine taste of display in the completeness of exhibits As representing the nation the glory rests with the United states. There is nearly everything from hatchets and screws up to the most gorgeous Silver work and the useful and ornamental Are represented in All their diverse aspects. It is Only in one or two particulars so far As at present appears that the foreign department exceeds that of this country. In musical instruments pianos and Organ the United states Are so far ahead of their foreign competitors As to be above All comparison and it is Gratifying to know that All the great recent improvements in these products Are of american origin. The Large preponderance of the visitors so far have been ladies. Nearly every Man is accompanied by two or three of the gentler sex and it has become quite the fashion for ladies to come and go without escort the French department is a peculiarly favorite resort of the ladies. There Are Many things exhibited there which please the average female Eye. It is Rich in jewelry Silver plate and other delicate notions and there Are magnificent articles of female attire which naturally attract the female heart 8trange to Tay Worth the parisian Man Milliner is unrepresented but some of rivals make splendid exhibits. Among the dresses is one valued at $9,000. No wonder men Are frightened out of the notion of Matrimony when women can place a Fortune like that upon their backs. A the fire Are Home features about the exhibition which Are nuisances and ought to be abated. One of them is the Sale of guidebooks in the body of the building. The commissioners were so anxious to secure All possible sources of making Money that a great variety of miscellaneous licenses were granted and this among them is fast becoming an unmitigated bore. A proposition has been made by a London firm of pyrotechnic its to furnish a Supply of fireworks for the fourth of july for the trifling consideration of $25,-0003 they agree to give the most magnificent display on record and there is a Strong disposition on the part of the commissioners to accept of the offer. It is a queer notion that englishmen should manufacture the wherewith to glorify the Centennial anniversary of our secession from their country. It is no secret that the anticipations of the commissioners in the matter of attendance since the opening Day have not been altogether realized. Not More than from 20,000 to80,000 visitors have been the average and Many Are fearful of the result and predict failure but the More hopeful Are predicting that later in the season when the weather gets colder the crowds will be larger. It is True that All the departments Are not yet completed. Russia and Turkey will not be fully prepared before the 15th of june. In other respects the main building is practically finished and the same is True of the Art gallery machinery Hall horticultural Hall and the government building. Agricultural Hall will not be completed until june 10. It is thought the Rush will begin about june a and the Hope is expressed that it will continue until the close. The foreigners who Are Here a that As it is the exhibition is far Superior to that held at Vienna. They congrats late the americans on the magnitude of the Enterprise and prophecy for it unbounded Success. The majority of the people who Are Here at present came merely to stay temporarily. Brazil sent $8,000,000 Worth of Diamond from the famous mines of Golconda but the brazilian commissioner did not care to give a Bond in the sum of $6,000,000 to insure the duty on those that might be sold and it it feared the people will not be Able to see such a magnificent collection unless the customs restrictions Are removed. The rolling chaire Are becoming quite popular. They Are loaned together with a push or i the rate of sixty cents per hour or my upor a whole Day and Many Are Avail Toff Jose selves of these vehicles.

The balloon was under the control of an cd Fer fenced and Well known aeronaut or. Oseph Simmons whose reputation for skillful management of balloons in Aerial journeys doubtless assisted the courage of the Gallant Lieut. Bailey who along with or. Simmons ventured on first aeronautic expedition. The balloon took at the Start a perpendicular direction and continued in a vertical line up it a height of 2,000 feet and having travelled a Little toward the West it was lost to View in the Clouds. For the space of ten minutes the balloon remained in the thick Clouds travelling still Westward and or. Simmons being aware of the great uncertainty of the upper currents and being in an extra degree anxious for companion determined to make As speedily As possible preparations to descend. No sooner had he done so and was beginning to go Down than he heard fellow passenger say a do you hear the sea running beneath us a having at the very time been under the same impression himself he of course replied that he did. Hear the sea. He at once opened the valve and the balloon began rapidly to descend. On emerging from underneath the Clouds off discovered not a Little to Surprise that the More elevated portions of the High mountains in the neighbourhood of Belfast were quite near so much so indeed As to preclude the possibility of mane vering before coming into Contact with the surface of the Earth. Or. Simmons saw that he was now in a dilemma being nearer the Earth Lilian was advantageous for the Safe working of the balloon and yet far enough from it to be exposed to destruction. He told the lieutenant to hold on with All might and just while companion was saying a a we shall be dashed against that House a the apprehended occurrence had taken place and with such great violence that a Large part of the roof of the building was torn away. The balloon rebounded after its Impact with the roof and or. Simmons was endeavouring with the utmost dispatch to bring it to the ground. He now directed the lieutenant to place Himsel f outside the car and to hang on with arms ready pm an instant s warn ing to do what he was ordered. This of course the Brave lieutenant did and the balloon was fortunately lowered till with in ten feet of the Earth. As soon As this Point was reached or. Simmons called on the lieutenant to let himself drop. The order was promptly obeyed it could not have been riven at Quot a better time Tor in a minute later the lieutenant at a chances of life would have been easily reckoned. Happily he escape without receiving any serious injuries and this agreeable fact he conveyed to Bis Friend or. Simmons by shouting loudly after As the balloon rapidly re ascended a i am ail rights one danger Over another to be met with. It was not an easy matter for or. Simmons to watch the valve and keep the balloon in control and at the same time to look for a favourable Opportunity of escape at the moment it presented itself. He found himself in a second Back into the a foods. The re ascent of the balloon having been greatly accelerated by the removal of the weight of one passenger and not until it had reached the fearful attitude of 7, 700 feet did or. Simmons succeed in putting any Check on its upward course. Here to unutterable horror he observed that of the seventeen main ropes suspending the car in which be was from the netting of the balloon ten had been severed by the collision with the roof which the balloon had struck when near the Earth and that 4sthers of the remaining seven were giving away. The needs i to of the awful moment suggested the the thought which he quickly put in practice that he could relieve the car of Wei fat suspending himself nearly to foil length of Tbs valve rope and this at the saute time performed the other requisite service of opening the valve so is to give the Gas a ready exit the ill Good came Down with Arete velocity and before or. Simmons had time to deliberate not find much favor Here some Plain Ecru net is used As a Scarf for bonnets. Ivory White is used with Pale Blue or Rose piping. Darker Cream color is contrasted with dark Cardinal or with Black velvet. When White Chip bonnets Are not found becoming the entire front is faced with Black velvet and dark Flowers of becoming color Are use for face trimming. The Cream coloured Chip bonnets remain most liked for dress hats As they suit with any aeronaut in Toilette. Their Garn iture is Cream coloured silk two Ostrich tips of the same Shade Cream coloured lace and two Long streamers of Cream coloured ribbon hanging Low behind. Two soft puffs of silk inside the front make a pretty face trimming for travelling bonnets. Fewer round hats Are imported than formerly. They Are Only used for second hats in the City but ladies going to the country Supply themselves with a Dressy hat to Wear with summer Toilette Aud also withal Broad brimmed Garden the for general use. Manila is the new material for Shade hats. This is a Fine Light braid Glossy supple and not easily injured by weather. It comes in Broca Flats with Large Crown and wide brim Woven All in one piece.

The Back is turned up though not closely against the Crown and is indented in scallops. The trimming is massed below the Back of the brim and on top of the Crown. The Rubens hats sent out from Paris Are made very Dressy by having a face trimming under the brim and being worn far Back on the head. Those of White English Straw have a Roll of White silk and Black velvet As a face trimming this Roll has clusters of loops on the left Side where the brim turns up and in their midst 14 a Crescent of Silver holding a White Ostrich plume that passes Over the Crown.

Walking up Broadway yesterday with a Friend we passed a eccentric individual that set my thoughts running in a particular directions the Mode of life followed by Home of the Well known charac ten of the City. This Man i had just passed is a study for an artial in front of the by Nicholas hotel he wait shambling along with eyes cast Down a dirty Briar Wood pipe in Mouth a ragged coat on Back an old so ticked hat on head pants sadly the we rate for Wear rolled up Over dirty brogans. I whole get up was strikingly suggestive. A a How much would you give for what is on that old fellow a i asked my companion. After he had turned and surveyed from head to foot the answer came a a Well old clothes might bring three dollars at a second hand shop but Why do you ask that question a a a because a i responded a a that old specimen of humanity is Worth three or four millions and he usually carries in those old clothes from $25,000 to $40,000 in United states and such Are the fact. This Man is named Connors. Many years ago he landed in Halifax from Ireland with but eighteen dollars in pockets. Strolling along water Street he saw in a junk shop a Large Quantity of old brass. An idea struck . Could he not make a successful Deal in old brass ? he entered and inquired How much per Pound would be accepted for the junk. His next move was in the direction of the piers on the River front he found a vessel about to sail for Boston in ballast and sought an interview with the Captain who proved to be a countryman of . From is ascertained the Price of brass in Boston and after a Little calculation they found that they could Clear about $400 by buying out the junkman. The skipper advanced the Money the brass was transferred to the Schooner. They set sail for the Hub where they arrived in due time and Selling their cargo cleared $450 by the transaction which they divided Between them. Connors remained in Boston where he made a Lew More Lucky speculations of this nature and then came to this City. He lived the life of a Riser in a dilapidated tenement House cooking own meals and having As Only companion a Little dog with whom he divided frugal meals. Every speculation he entered into yielded Gold and finally when he lad accumulated about $5,000, he began to operate in real estate. He was remarkably shrewd and everything he touched seemed to turn into Gold As if by magic. All this time wife and children remained in Ireland and rarely would he condescend to write to them owing to the necessity of purchasing postage Stamps that would be involved. His wet eth doubled nearly every year lots purchased for a Mere song enhanced in value rapidly and As he prospered he placed much in tenement houses that gave handsome profits. Borne years ago he purchased the Park hotel Corner of Bee pm an and Nassau streets. Later the Central Park hotel was erected by and still later the Astor place hotel. He now owns it is said five or six hotels and other real estate valued in the aggregate at Between $3,-000,000 and $4,000,000. Connors is a miser in every sense of the word. A few years ago he sent to Ireland and brought out eldest son to Aid in the management of Large estate. The Young Man toiled diligently but the old fellow did not give sufficient to Board and the Young Man left and is now running a real estate office in Brooklyn on own account. During All this time Connors carefully guarded from every one including son place of abode. None or servants know where to find except on rent Day when he Calls promptly to the hour and demands the uttermost Farthing. Connors is but one of Many fantastic characters that Are met every Day in the Busy walks of life in this . T. Cor. St. Louis Globe Democrat. Then and now. A there is much agitation among Christian scholars in Germany in View of the aggressive attitude of a Large part of the popular press toward Christian ideas and institutions. The facts which they adduce As to the newspaper and Norfo decal press Are worthy of a rail and careful consideration. We will the present Only give the result of the statistics of the Book publishers As illustrating the condition of theological literature. La 1868 More than 10,000 new books anti charts were published in Germany and in 1874 the number increased to 13,675. Up to the year 1871 theology headed the list but it has now fallen below education jurisprudence and politics and numbers Only 1,004 pub Lic amp Tione against 1,230 in 1878 a it erotic my when Dom Pedro was coming out of Church in new York be stopped in the Vestibule poke to one of the police officers lifted Bis the to and delivered a message. The Captain in return gave the military Salute and left the Church. A bed said a Looker on a a did yes Ever seethe like a it be gob. cop withe cop Kapin own on. They had not met Lor years. Once they had leaned Over the self same Garden Gate and sat Side by Side of the old fashioned hair cloth sofa whispering those platitudes which Young love males of such breath less interest while the kerosene lamp was turned Down to the faintest Glimmer compatible with perfect propriety. He had said that her image and hers alone could fill the void which absence from her left in heart and when after unutterable agonies of broken but impassioned English be had said that he adored her she had gently reclined her head upon the Home starched shirt bosom that creaked above Manly breast he having with great presence of mind placed handkerchief thereon in View of possible Poma Tum. And then he had taken the Assurance that she reciprocated affection from her own lips and he remarks with a sad smile that her breath was faintly suggestive of Fried onions eaten the previous Day but in those heavenly Gold plated moments he thought that the odor of violets in Soring was exhaled from her Rosy lips.
