from the lifollidagsburg Register, thinking it
would be interesting to many of onr readers :
New YORK, July 29, 1933.
After several days of unniiti. 1
:gated rain and general blue-devils, it cleared
. up yesterday most brilliantly. The effect was
quite visible at the Palace, the number of ad
missions being greater than on any previous
day; :Ix° persons entered on single tickets,
and $1.920 were taken in at the doors. Con
siderable progress has been lately made in the
unpacking and arrangement of articles, 01,06-

The Directors have at last conferred no
email favor on the public by providing seats
at intervals on the ground floor. Formerly
there were very few, and these were oonfined
to the galleries. Few exhibitions are so fati

at the same time. Some provide for them

served a couple of ladies start forwniti with
come impetuosity and seize the arm of an elder
ly eentleman who has hastily coming up. "So
we've found you at last!" cried one of them in
a tone that denoted that she would not soon
lose him again. The gentleman seemed
equally rejoiced to recover his fair charge.

til.the visitors leave, hut carpet-bags, bundles,
and every thing carried in the hand, are sub
jected to the same strict regulations. The oh
ject of this is to guard against thefts, for any
one that now appers within the building with is
bundle in his hand is an object of suspicion
and must undergo an examination. Before
this rule was put in force, two ladies were seen
going out each with a bundle of silk. They
were naturally suspected of having helpsd
themselves from some of the stalls, and were
stopped. These suspicions turned out he un
founded; but to prevent sneh unpleasant oc
currences for the future all bundles whatever
were put under the ban of the Police.
No department in the Fair is better repre
sented than that of nilver ware. Several Lon
don manufacturers have contributed superb
s h ow - caner filled with every variety of useful
and ornamented articles in this line. Tea ser
vices, fruit dishes, and pitchers wrought with
the highest skill and in all the fancy devices that
the taste of man can conceive, are here exhibi
ted. Several of these are worthy of special no
tice. First we have a fruit-dish. the base of
which represents a scene from Doti Quixotte.

ed with a fidelity which the painter would vain
ly seek to equal. A little further on we have a
silver group representing the landing of the
Pilgrims at Plvmoth, Mess., in 1630. In the
fere-ground is the Governor of the Colony, ac
companied by Cart. Miles Standish. The me-,
went selected is that of their interview with
Samoset, the first Indian with whom any inter
course was had. The attitudes are striking,
and the costumes well preserved; the amaze
ment of the savage, as he gazes on the new
comers, is depicted to the life. In another
ease we have a spirited representation of Sir
Roger Coverly, and the gips) , fortune-teller
reading to him his future from the lines upon
his head. Several purely ornamental groups
delineating Oriental life attract universal ad
miration. One of these represents a halt by a
spring in' the desert, several Arabians are seat
ed beneath n stately palm-tree, while their hor
ses are brewing in the neighborhood. Some of
these pieces are as much as four feet hied,—
The effect of silver in groups of this kind is fin

One of these cases contains an object of no
little interest, the Swiney Cup—a magnificent
silver goblet fourteen inches high, executed by
Messrs. Garrand of London. It is of the value
of £lOO sterling, and in pursuance of the will
of the late Dr. Swiney, is to be given, with the
like sum of £lOO in cash; to the Author of the
.hest published work on Jurisprudence," which
shall have appeared before January 185% and
which must be delivered at the office of the So
ciety of Arts, Manufactures, and Science, at
!London, by the 31st December, 1833, The
'competition for this prize is open to the Au
thors of any nation; but the work must be pub
lished at least in the English language. So,
if any of your renders have ever published a
hook on jurisprudence, let them send it along,
hoping all things. One thing We can tell them
—if they succeed, they will haire a cup for

Only one theft has been committed thus far
within the Palace, and that was some small ar
ticle left exposed on a stand. This sufficently
proves the vigilance and effectiveness of the
Police. One of this body informed me that as
'soon as any pickpocket or thief, known as such
to the more experienced officers, was found in
tlits building, he was arrested, exhibited to the
green-horns, and dismissied with a gentle ad
monition not to come there again. We would
suggest that their Daguerreotypes be taken by
'some of the eoinpeting exhibitors in this line,
labelled, and hung up among the rest, so that

Considerable interest has been excited in our
mercantile circles by the announcement that-a
line of steam-packets is about being established
between Geno and this city. Twelve voyages
are to be made earls year, and the Sardinian
government liberally patronize the enterprise
by paying about $7,000 each voyage, for the
transportation of mails. In the event of a war,
seven of the steamers are to be ceded to the
Government on payment of a stipulated sum.
Silver charm is getting scarce again, the U.
S. Mint at Philadelphia being unable to meet
the demand. This calls for prompt action on
the part of Government to remedy the evil; for
paying four cents to get a dollar bill changed
is something of an imposition. Nothing has as
yet been done with regard to the establishment
of an Assay office in this eitv, authorized at the
last session of Congress. The difficulty is to
procure a suitable building at a reasonable
price. Several have been offered. but on terms

Ample ast.lhis appears, the Messenger in
forms Uti that•it is hut nn approximation to ex
isting facts. What mighty engines are these
great religions societies for the spread of chris
tianity. Without the aid of any government
sanction, end depending solely upon the gener
osity of individual christians, there seems to be
no field too wide for their exertions to cover,
no obstacle sufficient to daunt them, and no
lack of funds for any 'work they undertake, or
ore called to perform, however great it may he.
They have built up a nation in the Sandwich
Islands; they are establishing christianity in
Farther India; and it is not improbable they
will give a christian Emperor to Chinn.
It is worthy of remark, that the Messenger,
so far from publishing this statement ostenta
tiously, and with a view to procure for the So
ciety the credit which is justly its due, simply
intended to show the necessity for increased
exertions. The editor says:
"As the result of all the information we
have, the best inclement we are able to form is,
that there is this day needed in our country
six hundred additional rolporteurs: that there
is also needed eight experienced well qualified
Superintendents of Colportage, each to have
the care of one or more States, embracing from
300,nn0 to 1,000,000 souls; and that there is
eenally needed eight able, gifted General
Agents. to represent all the interests and claims
of the Society in fields embracing not fir from
a million of souls, with pastors, churches, la
borers. and all the means of co-operation and
supnort which can be secured."
He adds that the colportage fields cover but
ahont five hundred counties, containing nine
millions of inhabitants; while them remain
about one thousand counties, with not far from
fourteen millions of souls, on which no colpor
teur of the society labors. This is but one of
the societids whose efforts are devoted to the
home missions. The American Bible Society,
the 'Presbyterian Board of Domestic Missions,
the American Dome Missionary Society, the
Baptist Dome' Missionary Society, and other
equally powerful, are working away with the
same wonderful energy and success.
Starvation in Spain.
It appears that the miserable condition to
which Ireland was reduced a few years ago, is
paralleled by what is now taking place in Spain.
A writer in a French paper says :
"In vain the venerable Bishop of St. Jac
ques, in presence of more than six hundred
unfortunates resembling moving corpses, who
daily bescige his gate, has sold his mules and
his carriage. In vain has he reduced himself
and his servants to the merest necessaries, in
order that he might oive the rest to those who
perish of hunger. A'lll that ho or the other
bishops and clergy, all that the govern can do,
according to the Espertotta, in but a drop of
water to extinguish the conlla o wration. When

Shooking Murder in Mieepuri 7 -The Nur-
direr Burned at the Stake
The negro man, says the Boonville Observer,
belonging to H. France, of Heath's creek, Pet
tis county, Missouri, who murdered the wife of
John Rains, living in the same neighborhood,
was burned at the stake, in or near Georgetown,
on the 13th ultimo. The circumstances atten
ding this murder, so far as we can learn, are
as follows :
The negro man, aged nineteen or twenty,
visited Mr. Rains, house on Sunday morning,
the 3(1 of July, while Rains was absent at meet
ing, for the diabolical purpose—according to
his confession—of committing a rape upon the
person of Mrs. Reins. The consequence was
that this lady, within a few weeks of a confine.
ment, was brutally murdered with a club: the
negro attempted to kill her oldest boy, and fan
cied he had killed him, fearing, as he said. that
he would tell on him—and Iwo younger children
were sadly bruised. and throws in a fence cor
ner, because, as the negro said, they annoyed
him "by crying about their mother." - When
Rains returned home. he found his wife dead,
and his eldest son so badly bruised that it wits
thought he could not [rawer; but he distinctly
told his father who it was that committed the
outrage: This demon in human shape was im
mediately apprehended flu. trial. but the citizens
took possession of him to burn him immediately,
and delayed the execution only to ascetain the
motives of so villianoug an outrage.
The negro at first said, that it was not him
who committed the murder. but his brother; and
next admitting his guilt, said he was instigated
to the act by his young master. His young
master was immediately taken into custody,
but released because the negro exculpated him
from the charge, admitting that it grew out of
his intention to commit a rape. The only ex
cuse which can he offered for the awful retribu
tion of burning this negro is the nature of the
crime, and the frequent attempts of late years
of neeroes to rape white women—several in
stances of which have occurred in this country
—and the impression among the community
that it required such nn example to protect
them front the repetition of similar outrages.—
The negroe's prime was horrid indeed ; but his
punishment will be regarded by many as cruel,
if not us barborous. Had it been a white man
instead of a negro, there is no doubt but what
he would have shared a similar fate.
