THK ARTISTS’ ALBUM.
This superb volume is to be presented to
Miss Charlotte Cusiiman. It is a collection
of water colors, and every picture is a gem.—
The book is bound in a style to correspond with
the value of its contents, and as a work of art
is one of the most beautiful articles in the ex
hibition. It is on a table in the centre of
Union avenue, cast of the flag-staff.
VOTE EARLY AND VOTE OFTEN,
Visitors to the Fair will have little difficulty
in testifying their appreciation of the gallant
deeds performed by our Union Generals, or of
the equally important services rendered by
orators and writers of this country and Europe.
Not only can you select the individual for whom
you entertain the highest respect, but you can
select the article which in your judgment is
most worthy of his acceptance. Throughout
the Fair building, there are voting stands, and
the object for whicli the votes are cast is
placed in a conspicuous position.
And first is the magnificent vase, in solid
silver, given by Daily & Co. It is in Union
Avenue, near the ilag-statf, and attracts, per
haps, as much attention as any other article
in the exhibition. Twenty dollars will entitle
you to nominate a candidate for popular suf
frage in the disposition of the vase, and one
dollar will entitle you to a vote. The vote is
by sealed ballots. The candidates in nomina
tion thus far are:
1. Abraham Lincoln was nominated by A.
E. Borie, Esq.

TUE MODEL HOUSE,

pended upon its construction and furnishing.
Gentlemen who stand A No. 1 in their respec
tive departments were selected to build and
furnish this miniature mansion. When we
state that the marble chimney-piece in the par
lor required three days of constant labor to
bring it to its present perfect form, some idea
may be gathered of the care bestowed on the
building. An Italian artist performed the
work. A placard informs visitors that the fol
lowing gentlemen were concerned in the erec
tion of the house:
Architect, Collis & Audenried.
Builder, Michael Errickson.
Marble work, E. Greble.
Papering, Howell & Brothers.
Painting, R, W. Pegley.
Arranging Curtains, YV. J. Ray.
Divan, Awnings and Upholstering, YV. 11.
Extension tables, book case and library, by
The building is divided into three stories,
and each room is complete with its miniature
furniture. The book case contains volumes
suited to the Lilliputian character of the es
tablishment. The “Art Gallery” is the
crowning feature. At the door there is sup
posed to be sold a catalogue of the collection
of Paintings. The size of the book and the
title page are in keeping with the building.
The title page reads :
Lately imported from the Kingdom of Lilliput,
and exhibiting for the
Benefit of the
Great Central Fair.
N. B. To avoid confusion, visitors are re
quested to keep to the right, and examine the
pictures in their numerical order.
Canes and umbrellas to be kept at the door.
There are twenty-six pictures, and at each
is a letter gem, contributed by an artist of
reputation. The collection is almost beyond
money value. Look at the list:

the defeat of his army—ll. J. Morton.

None of these paintings are more than five
inches by three, and some are much less; and
yet each would command a large sum of mo
ney. It is proposed to receive subscriptions,
each §lO, and at the close of the Fair the sub
scribers may determine what disposition to
make of the building.
Those who admire “ cross-sticks ” in poetry

BY MRS. t>R. MACUOWA?
To pour in oil and wine—sustain the bravo,
Help the wan sufferer—be he tree or slave;
Erect we hero an altar, where we plead,
Unlock your purses, for our armies’ need.
Noble the cause; Columbia's patriots cry,
Implore our aid to save; nor let them die;
Through camp and field, mercy on angel wings,
Each hand outstretched, relief and succor brings.
Disease, with languid eye not turned in vain,
Seizes the boon, and dreams of home again.
Tread lightly; see! a wounded one at rest,
As, breathing low, lie slumbers and is blest.
Turn wo again; the thickest of the light,
Eyes filming o'er in death, a ghastly sight;
See gentle bauds wiping the pallid brow,
Sighing and groans exchanged for blessings now.
And you, fair helpers in this work of love,
Not seeking aught but recompense above,
Inspired by that which “droppoth as from Heaven,”
The rich reward of doing good be given.
Ah! when again, sweet peace to us shall come,
Returning dove-like to her exiled home;
Yon starry banner wave o’er every shore,
Circling our Union in its folds once more;
Our glorious country, freed from ev'ry ban,
Majestic rise, first in the nations’ van.
May tiie oppressed of every land then see
In our proud Eagle, (symbol of the free,)
Solace and rest; and when we drop a tear
Sacred to those whoso memories are dear
In grateful hearts and homes, remember well
Our liberties, secured by those who fell—
Now, fold their banners o'er them—
“ All is well!”
And all’s right Gentlemen contributing
to the press should remember to always write
on both sides of the paper. Time is of no value
whatever to printers, and as for editors, they
are actually thankful to have anything to do.
Also write, if possible, on slips of all sizes and
colors. Invariably use a hard lead pencil, and
bear on lightly ; ink is too legible, and the
