'The Convention of Delegates ap

"It becomes us, also, to recall tho
characteristics of the chango in the

tranquil adoption of a system of checks

"The success of the great experiment

Cobslitutiou was the roost momentous
event in the history ol tho American
people, mid marks an epoch in tho his
tory of the civilized world. Under tho
Constitution .this great nation has
grown up and prospered, and on the
continued fluoooss of our Bystom of con-.
slilutlonal govcmmohl depend, iu
largo measure, tho futuro welfare and
happiness, not only of our own people,
but ol mankind. Wo beiiovo that mo
pooplo appreciate, in a solemn and
cratolul spirit, tho character ot tins
colobratton, mid that thoy will givo it
that ltcartv support throughout tho
length and broadth of the land which
will mako it in all ways worthy of tho
occasion and tho event,"
That tho pooplo do appreolato tho
oharaotor of tho oomlng oolobration is
evinced by tho hearty support which is
now bolng givon to tho Commission,
both by tho sovcral States and tho citi
zens of Philadelphia.
Tho Stato of Pennsylvania has ap
propriated $7.5,000 for tho purposes of
tho colobration and tho entortainmont
of tho representatives of tho nation, of
whom our Commonwealth will bo tho
host, Tho appropriations from other
States and from prtvato citizons of
Philadelphia can bo reliod upon great
ly to inoreaso this sum, and, consider
ing tho magnitude ot the undertaking,
a generous' inoroase will bo necessary.
An outline has already boon given
of tho naturo and extent of tho ooming
celebration. A comparsion, howovor,
with tho past may bo useful, lest by
want of patriotio zoal and forvor wo
permit tho joyful and magnificent
pageant of 1788 in honor of tho adopt
ion of the Constitution, to oxooed in
any manner our commemoration of its
centennial anniversary.
On July 4, 1788, tho citizons of
Philadelphia colobrated both tho Dec
laration of Independence and the es
tablishment of tho Constitution, pro
posed by the late general convention of
the states, tlion solemnly adopted and
ratified by ten of thoso Statns. Tho
colobration began by a saluto to th
rising Bun, by a full peal from Christ
Church steeple, and a disohargo of
cannon from tho ship "Rising Sun,"
anchored off Market Street. At the
same time ten vessels, named in honor
of tho ton adopting States and superbly
decorated, could bo seen arranged tho

that it was "an exhibition which for
nyvelty, splendor and decorum juBtly
merited universal admiration and ap
plause. If, beside the magnifioence of
the thing itself, we take into consider
ation tho important oocasion that in
duced it, it must bo acknowledged to
have been an object most interesting
and truly sublime."
It is of course but natural to expect
that the celebration of 1887 will sur
pass that of 1788 in respect to grandeur
and magnificence in every detail. To
surpass it, however, in tho joy and en
thusiasm of tho participants will not
be such an easy task.
The Stato of Pennsylvania has ap
propriated $75,000 j citizens of Phila
delphia have subscribed oyer $20,000,
The following sums have been appro
priated by other States, viz. : Connec
ticut, $18,000 ; Rhodo Island, $2500 ;
Delaware, $2000 j Massachusetts, $10,
000. New Jersey has authorized the
Govornor to send its militia at the cost
of the State. Maryland, Virginia, and
South Carolina have arranged to send
troops. Up to July 1st tho Governors
of theso States, as well as those of
Maine, New Hampshiro, Now York,
North Carolina, Oregon, Nobraska and
Texas, had accepted tho invitation of
the Commission to oome to Philadelphia.
Tho Governors of all tho States and
Territories have boon invited to tho
celebration as tho guests of the Com
mission, and have been asked to send
representations of their militia. It is
expected that in a vory short time ac
ceptances will have arrived from every
Governor who is not, for some good
reason, inoapaoitated from coming, and
that tho majority of States will bo rep
resented also by somo portion of their
troops. Tho great family of States
should and there is ovcry reason to
hopo will, appear at their gathering on
this historic occasion, without tho ab
senco 'of a singlo membor.
President Cleveland will preside at
tho ceremonies, and General Sheridan

to command tho combined forces of

Fremont's strange souihuquet,
Tho nickname "Woolly Horso,'' ap
plied to General Fremont in tho cam
paign of 185ii, rccallod to my mind a
story told mo by an old Washington
ian about tho origin of tho strango
soubriquet, writes a correspondent iu
tho Philadelphia liecord. It seems
that after Fremont had first announced
to the world his discoveries in the
great West, a. Philadelphia showman,
of a tricky and speculative turn, un
dertook to exploit Lieutenant Fre
mont's discoveries and at tho same time,
mako n liltlo money for himself. So
ho caino down to Washington. Con
gress then being in session, nud hiring
a snop on tue avonue, proceeded to ad
vortlso and exhibit "Lieutenant Fro
mont's woolly horso, captured by tho
gallant oxplorcr In tho very height of
the Rocky mountains at tho risk of his
lifo.'' Of course, it was only an ordi
nary, ovory-day horse, with patches of
wool stuok on. But it took, and the
showman began to mako monoy on it.
Ono lino day Senator Benton, Fro
mout's father-in-law, heard of tho
humbug, and sin tied out, vowing to
drivo it out of town boforo ovening.
Taking a brother Senator with him, ho
marched at once to the enemy's Bhop.
Tho showman, who was standing out
side tho door, and who know him per
fectly well, had Iho impttdonco to go
right on with his lecture Ho oven
went so for as to say to tho crowd:
"Hero is Lieutenant Fremont's father-in-law,
Sonator Benton. Won't you
walk in, Sonator, and tako your friend
with you t It won't cost you n cent."
"Como inside," said Benton stonily,
handing him ono dollar, and striding
in with his friend; "whero is this ani
mal V
"Horo ho is, said tho showman, bo
ginning at tho beginning of his lecturo
"Stop I" said Benton, in a tono that
had often made tho Senato chambor
ringj "if you don't take that fraud out
of town boforo dark I'll mako you
wish that you had novor boon born."
Tho impudence of the man was
frightened out of him by Bunton's se
verity and earnestness. "I'll go," ho
said, and went that evening.
