Full accounts of the opening of tbfc ;
Universal Exposition at Vienna^,ThUtli^!
./tap nar<mmni(ta fin<t.
addresses of the Archduke Charles,, the
Emperor, Prince Yon Auersperg, and the
burgomaster of Vienna, have been tele
graphed to this country. Among these
are the descriptions of Edmund Yates, the
English novelist, and John Russell Young,
the well knowp correspondent, who have
sent to the* New York Herald separate
accounts of
Mr. Young, in his account of the open
ing, says:
Vienna was shrouded Ibis morning, in
cold, unfriendly skies, which did not con
tribute to the splendor of festival of peace.
The clouds threatened rain, and the Dan
ube was ruffled by sharp, piercing winds;
but in spite of the disagreeable weather
the Viennese were out early and gayly
honored the long expected day. Early lih
the morning the guests who were invited
to witness the opening ceremony of the
great exposition were bidden to be in the
exhibition building at ten o’clock, as the
royal guests were expected at twelve.
The people who could not gain entrance
to it crowded the avenues near it. Under
the noble trees of the ancient forests of
Hofburg, the palace of the Emperor, to
the exposition building, the palace of the
world, were eager, hurrying throngs. As
became a day of peace, no soldiers were in
line, and only an occasional guardsman,
in dark Hungarian costume, was employ
ed to point the way. A thin line of citi
zens, in holiday dress, fringed the path of
the procession. Smiling, faces, coyly
peering into the imperial carriage, were
greeted with a welcoming smile in return.
Over the different wings of
the flags of all nations fluttered in the
winds and mingled their colors in friendly
contrast, our own, as seemed fit, consider
ing recent events, Union do,vn. As soon
as tne vast hall, the size of which comes
slowly on you, With a full sense of its im
mensity, was opened, the surging multi
lude began to fill it, crowding from twen
ty opening doors. Without and within
the scene was exceedingly animated, in
some respects exceedingly picturesque—
and Vienna, though its welcoming day of;
spring has often been celebrated with
great pomp and magnificence, never be
fore witnessed a pilgrimage to the Prater
so brilliant or so magnificent. The effect
produced on the mind of the visitor by a
first glance at the inside of the exposition
building was not agreeable. The raw
frescoed walls seemed to weep with oozing
frost and rain. The high organ obtruded
naked menial pipes, which well-meant
banks of greenery would hide. Every
where everything seemed misplaced.
There were statutes, castings groups and
canopies hung with clothes and carbets,
producing a most grotesque effect.

uniform, striding along
with a stalking gait, and escorting the
Empress Elizabeth. Then comes the
Prince of Wales, who smiles and bows,
especially as his ears catch the lusty home
cheer from the British group. Following
his royal brother are, Prince Arthur, bis
fine blue eyes beaming with pleasure; the
members of the imperial family, and the
great officers of state and the household
in gorgeous array, with fringed flunkeys
trailing after them. They move on to
the dais, where, in a pleased, smiling
group, they form a marvelous combina
tion of light, jewels, laces, and superb cos
tumes. All rise as the imperial party as
cend the steps, cheer follows cheer, and
then the whole multitude is still. Tbe
quiet continues while the Emperor turns
from side to side making a grave, serious
bow, and the music changes into Handel’s
grand anthem, exquisitely rendered. Then
there is another rock and surge of the
crowd right Into the imperial quarter-
It is with the utmost difficulty that order
is preserved, even within the sacred lim
its. The music lulls, and the opening ad
dress is made to the Emperor. It is clear
ly spoken in a few gentle phrases, but no
one hears it. Then follow the responses,
music by the splendid orchestra, giving
in turn the national airs of every country
the grand imperial promenade, and the
sensation is finished.
The English correspondent, Mr. Yates,
thus contrasts
with the Central Park, £Tew York ;
Compared with the Pra
ter is less picturesque, al
though pleasantly diversified by wood
ami meadow—just now, It is true, beauti
fully fresh and green. The Bois de Bo
logne is likewise more pictures.que’, but
the Prater avenue is a finer drive. With
Berlin Thiergarten there are few points
of comparison. The Thiergarten is a
large forest, a solitude just outside of the
Linden and the Brandenburg gate, that
can be reach from the center of the city
within five minutes, while the Plater
combines bath forest and meadow, but
lacks the quiet majesty that is connected
with the Tniergarten. True, the Thier
garten has nothing better than the muddy
Spree in the shape of a river, but the
Prater is washed by the “beautiful blue
Danube,” which, by the way, is gray or
lead color, I hardly sknow which. The
park is selected on all occasions by the
Viennese for their great festivals.
The exposition building stands in a
large enclosed space of the Prater, five
times as large as the Camp de Mars, on
which the Paris lexposition stood. On
the space from the entrance to the build
ing six fountains send large jets of water.
Tastefully arranged lawns and flower
erot. walks with hesitation,
,Jr i' : ■ . ’ ■ '
beds greet the eye. To the left is a long
row of low buildings connected with the
director general’s bureau; to the right a
similar row, for the police, &c. To the
left further west, the jury pavilion; to
the right is the beautiful imperial pavil
ion. Wherever the eye is directed are pa*
villons and ornamental structures. Wan
dering amid the trees of the spacious
grounds one is met by constant surprises.
We enter a veritable fairy land, although
it must be admitted that imagination has
to complete some of the instfpctures, even
though it is the first of May. Fantasti
cally variegated structures, with cupolas
and minarets, take us in spirit to the Ori
ent, and to the hieroglyphic enchantment
of the Nile, to the peasant huts of Alsace
and Lorraine, to the plains of Hungary,
to the steppes of Russia and to the school
houses and wigwams of America. AH
people and religions can find their pla
ces of worship in this Prater world. A
Greek chapel, a Buddhist temple, a Ro
manian church and the Turkish minaret,
may ail invite the faithful to prayer be

la my description of President Grant’s
inauguration for the Herald I painted
glowingly the festive appearance present
ed by European capitals on gala days.
Any one who bad read that picture, and
y?ho happened to be present here to-day,
would have thought my real name was
Ananias. The houses of Vienna are bare
as robbing. There are no flags on the
roof tops or across the streets, no Veni
tian masts with flying streamers* no drap
ed balconies, aqd no triumphal arch until
we have reached the south or main en
trance of the exposition building.
The Republican State Convention Com
mittee has decided that the next conven
tion shall be held August 13, at Harris
burg. Two months will be ample time
Commonwealth the reasons
should support the Republican nominees,
and if the Democratic journalists cannot
in that period expose all the corruption
that each candidate possesses they should
not attempt the job. The candidates to
be selected are gentlemen who can prop
erly fill the positions of Judge of the
Supreme Court and State Treasurer, and
already several persons have been named
for the first, although it seems to be un
derstood that Judge Paxson ot this city
will be the choice. The friends of Judge
Butler, of Chester, and those of other gen
tlemen in the State equally deserving are
laboring to secure the elevation of their
respective favorites, but we shall be much
mistaken if our own worthy member of
the judiciary is not chosen. As for State
Treasurer nobody yet is spoken of in con
nection with the position except the pres
ent incumbent, Mr. Mackey, who has
given unqualified satisfaction, save to a
few disgusted individuals who could not
use him for their own pecuniary advan
It is generally understood that Hon.
Edward M. Paxson, of the Court of Com*
mon Pleas, will receive the nomination
for the Supreme Bench, in which case-a
prominent and eligible candidate for the
position vacated by Judge Paxson will be
found in the person of John Dolman, Esq.,
one of the most successful and careful
members of the bar of Philadelphia. It
will be remembered that Mr. Dolman ran
for District Judge last fall, receiving
about 11,000 votes for the nomination,
being second only to Mr. Briggs, who
was subsequently chosen Judge. In ap
pointing Mr. Dolman the Governor can
not fail to keep up thereby the high char,
acler of the Court for integrity, wisdom,
and judicial fairness.
Delegate Temple, of the C institution
al Convention, asserts positively that he
did nBt refer to Judge Ludlow in his re
cent remarks upon the Judiciary. So far
as we are concerned, we never thought
he did, and that thought is proved to be
correct by the fact that he will not deny
that his reference was to Judge Paxson.
Mr Temple has a huge work on hand—
that of cleansing and purifying the Demo
cratic party, but he will find his labors
immeasurably increased if be attempts to
villify Republican Judges, either because
they are Republicans, or because one or
the other of them may have given a de
cision which has been unpalatable to

The appointment of Stale "Senator W®.

Southern Pacific Bulroad Conapany is
one which cannot fail to- be of advantage
to the enterprise. Although we have al

The Pittsburgh Commercial says; Tne
death of linn. James Brooks-is announc
ed. He had been in delicate health for
some time and the nervous anxiety occa

He exhibited a sensitiveness in regard! to
that transaction which might have been
imitated by other parties at least equally
implicated with himself, but the ordinary
politician is made of course clay, and Mr.
Brooks was no ordinary politician. He
was a man of rare information, a clear

He was the leader of the Democratic par

no less by the vigor which he always dis
