Phiadelphia, May 13, 1876.
Thinking that I might interest
some of your readers I will give you
some, things as they appear to a
Purchasing a round trip ticket to
the Centennial while I was in Cin
cinnati (I could not get one until
the first of May) good for sixty days
from date and return by way of New
York and Niagara Falls, for the
small sum of ?3l), shows the advan
tage to the traveling public of com
peting lines of railroad. Starting
from the Qieen City at 9-30 o'clock
a. m., we left the best average buili
citv in the Union, solid business
blocks and beautiful suburbs; St.
Louis, the largest city of tho west,
is rusty in appearance, the old part
of the City having very narrow
streets and alleys, and San Francis
co, with Montgomery street and the
Palace Hotel and rickety outskirts
and Chinese quarters remind one of
a ruffled shirt and moccasins.
Ohio contains some fine country and
West Virginia some vory rugged
hills. Waking up about 4 o'clock
in the morning I looked out of the
eir window and saw the Blue Ridge
mountains in tho distance and we
were whirling through tho Shenan
doah valley, stopping only two or
three times in a hundred miles.
The charming landscapes lighted up
by the rising sun, appeared from the
window of thelightnitig express, like
tho shifting scenes of tho kaleid-S-'ope.
Washington City in the
month of Ma with its numerous and
and extensive parks, its broad ave
nues and streets, strike tho behold
er with admiration. After leaving
the rains and fogs of Webfoot l.st
winter, I thought Oakland, Cal.,
was an incipient garden of Klen,
but Washington City is like K len
would have boen if tii3 Head Gard
ener instead of being turned out for
his shortcomings had been furnished
with millions toward adorning it.
Under the Boss Shepherd system,
the tax-payers groan while the trav
eler admires. While I was in Wash
ington, the Senate was trying the
DelUnap case, as to whether they
had jurisdiction after Belknap had
resigned. Senator Mitchell has a
seat on tho inside row of desks next
to the Democratic side of the House.
Behind him sits Cuas. Colliding of
X. Y. Tho latter, I consider, to
be tlie finest looking man both phys
ically and intellectually in the Sen
ate. Senator Kelly occupies a seat
in the outer row, next to the Repub
lican side of tho House. Bruce of
Mississippi, the only colored Sen
ator, occupies the old seat of Jeff.
Davis. He looks nioro like a corn
fed coachman than a U. S. Senator.
Socially he receives the cold should
er from from the other Senators and
he looks as though he fullly compre
hended the situation, for since the
days of Chas. Sumner no one seems
to have the moral courage to make a
darkey feel at home in hin presence.
Next behind Senator Bruce, with a
marked milttury bearing, a self-cm. -
iugton, but as they ought to be kept
now. I rom the house you have a
view of tho river for many miles
up and down, and were it not for a
bend in the river, the Capitol build
iug could be seen. It is a five hours
run from Washington to Phiadel-
phia. Between Washington and
Baltimore there is a fine country.
Around Wilmington, Delaware, it
resembles the Sacramento valley.
Arrived at Philadelphia on the
9th of May, late in the night and
behind time, because of tho heavy
trains of passengers. Whether this
is the City of Brotherly Love or not
there is one command the hotel and
restaurant keepers obey with a vim
to "take the stranger in!" At the
new hotels erected near the centen
nial buildings yon may get as good
accommodations for $3 per diem as
you could get for 1.50 in Portland.
Leading papers say this must stop
or there will bo an exposition of
landlords through their columns.
By nine o'clock on the opening
Any the crowd was ''mmense. Out
side ot tuo gates every street car
was crammed to its utmost capacity,
many breaking down. But those
arming on the cars seemed to be
outnumbered by tho continuous
stream pouring up Belmont Avenue
on foot. At nine o'clock the gates
were opened, but the crowd was at
the Centennial National Bank where
tho necessary fifty cent greenback
could be procured. Two twenty-
iive cent pieces won't do, ne'ther
will a dollar take in two. No ticket
ire issued and nothing admits at the
gate but a fifty cent piece or a free
pass. In trying to get a position
where I could see all the opening
ceremonies I took a stand niidwav
between the main Exposition build
ing and Memorial Hull. On a plat
form in front of the former tho Or-
cnestra and live hundred sni"ti
were seated. In front of the latter
-nt tho President and dignitaries
L'ho music created liltlt sensation
until a solo was sung by Whitney of
Boston, when tho multitude seemed
to "row wild and nothing would do
but a repetition, which was given
Thero was quite a contrast in the
stvlo of public speaking between
Gen. llawley and Gen. Grant. The
voice of tho former could bo heard
abve the d.n of the multitnde.
While the lips of tho latter could be
seen to work, not a sound of his
voice could be hoard. Standing in
the posture of a rustic school boy on
reading his first composition, Gen
Grant did not move his eyes from
his paper from tho time ho com
menced until he hud finished his
little piece. Some other time I will
jrive some account of tho exhibition
and several others of this place at
