SEEING THE FAIB. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 15 June 1864

SEEING THE FAIB. The Fair is really so vast that it requires a succession of visits to gain more than a mere general idea of it. In fact, even then, unless one is of a very determined frame of mind, the chances are against getting a very clear conception of it. At every step you meet some acquaintance, and at half the tables you find intimate friends, and by the time you have embraced them, or shaken all their hands, you find yourself entirely diverted from the well devised plan you had arranged for seeing it, and probably end the day in some department short of hands, where you are converted into an active assistant. For ourselves, being on committees, and having lots of agreeable friends, we have given the job up in despair. In order, however, to get some notion of the Fair, that we may not utterly fail if asked to describe it by some unhappy person who could not see it, we have purchased a lithograph of it, and read with great interest the graphic reports of its doings in o...

OM DWI (BEAT CEITflAl FUH [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 15 June 1864

OM DWI (BEAT CEITflAl FUH If there lives a Pennsylvanian, or a Jerseyman, or a Delawarian, with soul so dead that never to himself has said, this is our own Great Central Fair, and thus saying, taken his wife and his children, and his reasonable sized greenback, and gone to Logan Square, and done the Fair, from a peep at a five cent show to an inspection of Vanderlyn's Ariadne, the said Pennsylvanian, Jerseyman or Delawarian should be immediately secured at any cost, and placed in a glass case, in the department of Relics and Curiosities. Mrs. JAMES would, doubtless, find the receipt* of her department largely increased by such an acquisition. We resume our notices of matters and things at the Fair: THE SCHOOL DEPARTMENT. When the Great Sanitary Fair was first suggested no one entered more heartily into the scheme than did the teachers and pupils of our public and private schools. At once a series of entertainments, musical and literary, were projected and carried through wi...

HOW THE SANITARY 13 WORKING IN THE FIELD—NO. 3. [From Our Correspondent with tho Potomac Army.] WHITE HOUSE, VA., June 4, 1804. In my last letter I referred especially to the mercantile phase of the Commission, which may, perhaps, be more readily understood by the good people who contribute so generously to its treasury and store houses, by referring to the more immediate plan of the local and branch societies. The town and village associations send their boxes to the branch office, say in Philadelphia, accompanied by invoices of their contents. On receipt of these boxes at the Philadelphia office, their contents are compared with their accompanying invoices, the latter duly filed and acknowledged. The contents are then duly classified and arranged in separate boxes, ready for shipment to Washington or elsewhere, at a moment's warning. When ordered, and shipped to Washington, the same system is repeated, thus duplicating the record, and when forwarded from Washington to the base...

THE HARVEST MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 15 June 1864

THE HARVEST MOON. BY THE LATE BISHOP DOANE. [An Unpublished Piece.] Harvest moon, so called, is a remarkable phenomenon, relating to the rising of this luminary in the harvest season. During the time she is full, and a few days before and after, (in all about a week,) there is less difference in the time of her rising, between any two successive nights, (in other words she is more constant) than when she is full, in any other month of the year. For tho why ; she thus affords an immediate supply of light after sunset, which is very beneficial in gathering in the fruits of the earth. Hence the name. Second, for the because. To understand the matter, it must be borne in mind that the moon is always opposite to the sun when she is full; that in our harvest months, she is full in the signs Pisces and Aries, which are the signs opposite to Virgo and Libra, where the sun is at that season ; and because those parts of the ecliptic rise in a shorter space of time than any others. The...

TEE FAIE MOVEMEHT IN THE LOYAL STATES.—Ho. 8. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 16 June 1864

TEE FAIE MOVEMEHT IN THE LOYAL STATES.—Ho. 8. THE METEOPOLITAN FAIR. New York, although obliged to imitate the example, and follow in the wake of the success of these great enterprises in other places, became at last thoroughly roused. Her imperial pride could not brook the suggestion that she must follow at a humble distance while others led. She was accustomed to be the pioneer in all the grand movements characteristic of the country, and she felt it an insult to her wealth and position when people began to murmur "Ceat de 1' Ouest aqjourd'hul d'ou vlent la lumlere." She set to work then in good earnest about the end of December last, with the determination of organizing a Fair, which should not only be more productive than any which had been previously held, but which should bring more money into the Treasury of the Commission than all former Fairs combined. Her ambition was to do as least as much, in proportion to her population, as had been done in other cities, and that ...

It was at first designed, as we have seen in our account of the Brooklyn Fair, to embrace not only New York city, but all the populous towns in its immediate neighborhood, as a field of operations. It was found, however, that this was impracticabl...

ITEMS BY A CAVALRY HAN. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 16 June 1864

ITEMS BY A CAVALRY HAN. [For Our Daily Pure.] 1'AYINO FOR AN OATH OP ALLEGIANCE. While at Sparta, Tennessee, with Colonel Harrison's Regiment, (39th Indiana Mounted Infantry), in the beginning of last January, I was detailed by Colonel II. as Provost Marshall, and part of my duty was to administer the oath of allegiance to such of the citizens as would take it voluntarily. One day a rough specimen of the chivalry came into my office and accosted me with " How d'ye, stranger; are you the Provost?" I told him I was. " Wa'al," said he, squirting a mouthful of fluid-weed on the stove, " I recken I'll take yer oath." I soon had the oath administered in all due form and solemnity, the returning prodigal stumbling slightly at the words "mental reservation or evasion," but being assured that they did not involve the surrender of his "bosses," recovered his ground. I handed him his duplicate, properly signed and witnessed, and asked him a few questions. As he put on his hat to go, he...

THE WAR AND THE FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 16 June 1864

THE WAR AND THE FAIR. TTAD it been foretold to us, only a few years ago, that there was contained in the future a bloody civil war, shaking the Union to its foundations, and that there was also to be held in Philadelphia a Fair, brilliant beyond compare, who of us could have imagined that these two things, so foreign the one to the other, so directly opposite, were to occur in the self-same hour? We could not have dreamed it. We should have supposed, most probably, that the War and the Fair would be wide apart, separated, the one from the other, by a great gap of time. Our conjecture would have been that the Fair would be held, not during the war, but after the war, in celebration, perhaps, of the return of peace. But, as it is, the great Fair is held in the very midst of the war, and while the fiercest battles of the war are raging. Out of the ground smoking with the warm blood of the terrible conflict, and amidst the uproar of the fight, flower forth these wondrous forms o...

VOTE EARLY AND VOTE OFTEN. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 16 June 1864

VOTE EARLY AND VOTE OFTEN. It gives us real pleasure to invoke all the visitors to the Great Central Fair, to indulge in a liberal practice of the above much abused rule. It is one of the inestimable privileges of the occasion. At most other elections one vote is considered enough for one man—and in point of fact, that is all the law allows. We are aware that we have a class of voting patriots among us who do not agree with the law, but sometimes they suffer a rather close confinement for their attempted enlargement of their area of freedom. But we have no such unpleasant restrictions at the Fair, Here we have a true realization of "universal suffrage." Every-body may vote—man, woman and child, provided only the poll-tax be paid, which ranges from Twenty-five Cents to One Dollar. For the latter sum, you may help to give your favorite General the $2500 sword, or say who shall have the magnificent Silver Vase, while for the former, you may cast your suffrage so as to give the co...

JUST LIKE A WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 16 June 1864

JUST LIKE A WOMAN. There is no one phrase that we have heard repeated more frequently, during the Fair, than the one with which we have headed our article. In the crowd, as we jostle through the door, we at once recognize the marital relation of the couple before us by the application of it by the man to the confiding being on his arm. The cause of the remark is generally intimated in such a gentle tone that we rarely catch it, and often amuse ourselves in inquiring what the female could have done so characteristic of her sex. We think, perhaps, the gsntle being has left the gas all burning in the deserted mansion, or has left the dead-latch up, or has not warned Bridget against allowing the baby to play on the railroad track, or, worse than all, has forgotten to bring her Fair ticket with her. The last atrocity, however, generally brings out something stronger than a general reflection; and its mildest type, is giving the phrase a personal turn, as " that's so like you." Brot...

HOW THEY LIVE AT THE " WATER BASE." [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 16 June 1864

HOW THEY LIVE AT THE " WATER BASE." It may be interesting to some of the readers of the Daily Fare, and especially to such as have friends in the Sanitary Corps, to hear something of the habits of life of those who have gone to "the front," as the term is at home, though to those engaged in service at " the base " of the army itself, " the front" means something considerably beyond. White House, the late base of General GRANT'S army, is about fifteen miles in the rear of the actual scene of his most recent operations. The "base " is necessarily well removed from the line of battle, and upon a navigable river or well-protected railway. At White House the Sanitary Commission have their headquarters on a boat at the wharf. Here all hands assemble three times daily for meals, and a motley group they arc; mostly young men of education, doctors, young clergymen, clerks from their counting houses, and artisans from their shops, arrayed in every variety of costumes, not a white sh...

A CUP OF COLD WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 16 June 1864

A CUP OF COLD WATER. BY ELLEN HURRAY. Tho wide hot field, where smoke and steam Of battle only helped tho beam Of south-sun at its noon. Where trench on trench was filled across By dying man and struggling horse, Where death was priceless boon. There waking from the sudden sound A soldier on the trampled ground Was parching with his thirst; And asked, but only heard, hard by How dying rebels in reply, With bitter anguish cursed. It seemed to him in fevered trance He saw tho sparkling runlets dance By his New England home, And take their way with whirl and leap In emerald coolness down the steep,. To break in light and foam. Upon the slope the flowers of May, The mountain breezes round him play, He cannot feel their cool. Yet watches from the rock's bold side How trout and minnow dart and glide Across the dark, still pool . Ho starts to feel his bitter pain The burning fever-thirst again, And moans beneath tho sun. But tender hands were near to boar To cooling shade and fresh...

Oil OKI HAT CUM II [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 16 June 1864

Oil OKI HAT CUM II Details and Jottings. The Fair buildings were crowded as usual yesterday. Strange faces thronged every avenue, department and corridor, and bore testimony to the general and wide-spread interest taken in the great patriotic, humanitarian movement. To-day, we will have a visit from the President to the Fair; and this circumstance will attract crowds of visitors, who will hit two birds with one stone by seeing the President and the Fair at the same time. We resume our notice of matters connected with the Fair: THE SCHOOLS. Since our notice of the School Department, we have received a few more items in relation to the Ninth Section. This section was unavoidably omitted yesterday. The Twentyfifth Section claims another paragraph. NINTH SECTION. As soon as the Fair enterprise was fairly inaugurated, the Ninth School Section decided on a concert to be given by the Zane Street Girls' Grammar School. Seventy-three hundred tickets were sold, and as it was impossibl...
