HOW THE SANITARY IS WORKING IN THE FIELD.—No. 4. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 16 June 1864
HOW THE SANITARY IS WORKING IN THE FIELD.—No. 4. [From our Correspondent with the Army of the Potomac] WHITE HOUSE, VA., June 6, 1804. I propose to present in this letter some account of the "Auxiliary Relief Corps," which is a very important arm of the Sanitary Commission service. It is organized in accordance with the following idea: As all the work of the Commission is supplementary, it must, in the construction of its several departments, correspond as nearly as possible with the army arrangements. For example, at this base there are seven corps-hospitals, and there must, therefore, be seven corps-stations of the Commission, if each hospital is furnished with suitable care. You will not understand me to mean dwelling-houses or barracks when I speak of hospitals, as there are but few houses within sight of this place, and they nre rude, dilapidated log huts. A hospital here, is, wherever there are sick and wounded men, whether they are under shelter or not. As soon as pract...

THE FAIB MOVEMENT IN THE LOYAL STATES.—No. 9. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 17 June 1864
THE FAIB MOVEMENT IN THE LOYAL STATES.—No. 9. QRKAT WESTERN SANITARY FAIR, CINCINNATI. CINCINNATI was not slow in following the ^ example of Chioago. There has always existed a sort of rivalry between the Queen City of the West and her younger sister of the Lake; but never was that rivalry displayed in a nobler and more generous form than when the contest arose which city should do most for the soldier. The "National Union Association," of Cincinnati, took the initiative, and, under its auspices, an organization, called (he " Sanitary Fair Association," was formed, by which the Great Western Fair was conducted. General Rosencrans, who had seen muoh of the operations of the Commission in the Army, and who thoroughly appreciated the systematic beneficence of its work, was the President of this association, and gave it the valuable support of his great name. Two of the largest and most convenient edifices in Cincinnati, Mozart Hall and Meohanics' Institute, were oocupied as the...
LOVE AT THE FAIB. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 17 June 1864
LOVE AT THE FAIB. The following letter, supposed to have dropped from the ridicule (we beg pardon) the reticule of a young lady from the country, was picked up yesterday in the picture gallery of the Fair. There being no address upon it, we print it for the benefit of "the concerned."— EDITOR. PHILADELPHIA, June , 1864. Dearest Amelia Ann:—I had not the slightest idea of writing you so soon, at least not until I had heard from you dearest, but I've had such an adventure; you cant think how interesting, and ma's in such a flurry about it, you dont know how she embarasses me by her constant allusions to him,—for you must know he'B perfectly charming. Of course you feel an interest in all that concerns me, and will know from your own experience in affairs of the heart how terribly absorbing such things are, particularly to one who like me never before felt what our dear Byron oalls the "strong necessity of loving." But I'm anticipating. Well dearest you know we left in the 11 o'c...

was a Refreshment Hall, and it was supplied in lavish abundance with every variety of edible, from every place in the neighborhood. The oity and its vicinity was divided into districts, and each district covered the tables with cooked dishes of all kinds on a particular day assigned to it—coffee, oysters, turkeys, ducks, chickens, hams, tongues, beefsteaks, cakes, fruits—and a hundred ladies waited on the guests. There was a Ladies' Bazaar, in which almost every thing that ladies can either devise or manufacture, or that they or gentlemen are at all likely to require, was exposed for sale. There is hardly any art or manufacture that was not represented at it, and hardly any department of industry in the West which did not contribute to it. And though last, not least, there was an Art Gallery, containing all the most valuable piotures to be found in Cincinnati or its neighborhood, lent by their owners for the occasion. It must not be forgotten, too, that, as we remarked in our la...
UNPUBLISHED LETTER BY JOHN ADAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 17 June 1864
UNPUBLISHED LETTER BY JOHN ADAMS. QUINCY, May 25th, 1816. To Judge Vander Kemp: Reverend, Honorable, Learned, Venerable, and Dear Sir: As I stand in great need of a Casuist in Philosophy, Morality and Christianity, to whom should I apply but to you, whom I consider as the best qualified of all my friends. The Stoicks, the Christians, the Mahometans and the North Amerioan Indians, all agree, that complaint is unmanly, unlawful, and impious. To bear Torment without a murmur, a sigh, a groan, or a distortion of Face or Feature, or a Wryth or contortion of the Body, is consummate Virtue, Heroism, and Duty. Mr. Lear has, compleated the glory of great,, and good Washington, by informing us that he suffered great distress without a sigh or a groan. Jepthah's Daughter Agamemnon's Iphigenia, the Hindoo Widows, who roast, boil, and, fry with their Husband's Bones, probably utter no Shrieks. The son of Acknomaok never oomplained. Brissot and some of his Colleagues are said to have pronou...

P. S. Pa says he is going to telegraph to St. Louis to find out about Phoenix's " antecedents," just to please Aunt Slocum. I wish he wouldn't; it looks so distrustful, but you know if Pa gets anything once in his head, there's no arguing the point. I shall take this letter in my pocket to the Fair to-day, so as to add anything new and interesting that may turn up there. The Fair, by the way, is a great success. Among other things they publish a newspaper there every day called the Daily Fare. It's so entertaining that I shall send you a copy every day it comes out. P. S. 1 o'clock, heavens, Amelia, what do you think! Pa's just got a telegram from St. Louis in these words, "P. F. is a humbug —no such firm here as Ketchum, Contract & Ketchum." O dear, O dear, what shall I do? But I don't believe a word of it, nor will I allow my own dear Phoenix to be torn from me in this way. Ea's in an awful rage and swears revenge! Bob says P. F. won't show his face again, and he owes ...
LETTER FROM GENERAL MEADE. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 17 June 1864
LETTER FROM GENERAL MEADE. The following letter from General MEADE was written in the field near the Rappahannook. As copies of it have done some service through Trinity Church for the Sanitary Fair, it has claim to a place among the reoords of Our Daily Fare: HEADQUARTERS, ARMY OF THE P OTOMAC , \ April 8th, 1864. / Reverend and Dear Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of a copy of the eloquent sermon delivered by you on the day of National Thanksgiving, November 26, 1863, and in behalf of the noble army under my command, thank you most kindly for the gratify ing mention made by you of the services it rendered the country at Gettysburg, and for your just appreciation of the great victory won by its valor, under the favor of God, on that memorable field. I am, very respectfully, your obe't servant, GEO. G. MEADE. Major-General Com'ng. REV. DAVID WASHBURNE, Phil'a., Pa.

VICTOBY! BY KANE O'DONNII. Up to tho continent's dome, to the monument mountains old; Round by the ocean that rears round by our torrents of gold; Out from our commonwealths free, one shout, one acclaim shall be given, Nature's one voice shall be ours, bearing Heaven's message to Heaven I Now the long peril is past—lo! in the battle the omen—Victory! victory! rolled—rolled In tho wreck of the foemen! Oiant tho triumph but long—long the fierce death-volley rattles; Bleeding, our legions press on, rounding the cycle of battles. Strong as tho forests they stood, gun to gun, shoulder to shoulder, Charged with their eyes to the fire—never our eagles were bolder; Then how they swooped on the foe! Fallen his prido at meridian, Smote by tho sword of the Lord—sword of the Lord and of Gideon! 0! the ages shall hear, and bo proud, how our yeomen went into the onset; Stormed hill, the red day was won, and with banners rode into the sunset, Glory of Israel theirs—theirs the promise of ...
THE HOSPITAL DIRECTORY—" ONLY TWO LINES." [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 17 June 1864
THE HOSPITAL DIRECTORY—" ONLY TWO LINES." Complaint is sometimes made of the large outlay which is required to maintain the Hospital Directory or Register, by which the name and condition of every inmate of a military hospital throughout the country is ascertained. To keep constantly an accurate list, is, of course, a work involving an immense amount of labor, and requires the employment of many clerks. It is said that the information given in answer to the inquiries of friends is very meagre, not usually exceeding two lines. But if those who heedlessly think that such information is of little value, could see the crowds of anxious relatives who throng the office in this city immediately after a great battle, earnestly seeking to know the fate of those who are dear to them, they would form a very different opinion. When inquiry is made as to the position of any soldier supposed to be wounded, if his name is not found in the lists of the hospitals here, application is made to t...
PRESIDENT LINCOLN'S VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 17 June 1864
PRESIDENT LINCOLN'S VISIT. rPHE Great Central Fair was honored yester--1 - day by a visit from the President of the United States. The President left Washington, on a special train, at 7 A. M., reached the Broad-street depot about 12, and was escorted to the Continental amidst the warm greetings of the throngs of people who crowded all the streets. Having rested for a few hours he was driven out to the Fair Buildings, where he arrived shortly before 5 o'clock. He was received and welcomed, at the eastern end of Union avenue, by Mr. JOHN WELSH, on behalf of the Executive Committee, and was then escorted through the various Departments of the Fair. * Wherever the President appeared, his reoeption by the people was of the heartiest character. There was great waving of hats, hand kerchiefs, and flags, and genuine outbursts of cheering prolonged almost without end, spontaneous and universal. Such a crowd, with such surroundings, and a reception marked by such unmistakable signs o...
CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 17 June 1864
CHANGE. We do not refer, in this connection, to the mutations of human life, nor do we desire to philosophise on the ravages of time. We advert merely to the conversion of a large amount of money into its smaller constituents. This is a very simple operation and in everyday life takes place rather faster than is agreeable. An eccentric English nobleman once called one of his race horses "Change for a Sovreign," on the ground that it went faster than anything that he knew of. Probably,if he had seen a greenback at the Fair, his experience of life would have been improved. The conversion is easy enough, but more persons have probably became aware, within the last week, of the number of cents, five cents, ten cents, twenty-five cents, contained in from one to five dollars, than were ever cognizant of the fact before. The presiding deities of a number of 'the departments have been more acoustomed to buying than selling. They have confined measures to the very simplest processes ...
LITHOGRAPH OF THE FAIB. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 17 June 1864
LITHOGRAPH OF THE FAIB. In a short time every vestige of the Fair building will be removed, and the only worthy representation of it will be the beautiful lithograph now being daily printed in the building itself. This, of course, gives it an additional value, as it enables the purchaser to preserve a memento of a building no longer in existenoe, by means of a beautiful picture printed and published in his own presence, and bought during the continuance of a Fair, the like of which we shall probably never see again. As a work of art it is very fine, quite worth the amount for which it is sold, without referenoe to the peouliar value whioh the circumstances we have mentioned give to it. SOME PEOPLE GO TO CHURCH to show their new clothes, others to conoeal their bad habits.

HE in GRUT CUM 1111 The Art Gallery—Reports of the Fair-Gossip. The due course of our reports brings us, at length, to the most remarkable single feature of the Great Central Fair—its collection of Paintings, the largest ever exhibited in Ame- . THE ART GALLERY. As we write for posterity as well as for the present generation, and as many persons who are at a distance from Philadelphia, and cannot visit the Great Central Fair, are among the readers of Our Daily Fare, we will do in this article what would otherwise be a work of supererogation, to wit: dwell at some length upon the magnifioent collection of pictures which oompose the Art Gallery in the Great Fair. Upon the organization of the Fair this department was plaoed in the hands of a committee formed of the following named gentlemen: Joseph Harrison, Jr., Chairman; Thomas Sully, Henry C. Carey, Caleb Cope, Wilson C. Swann, M. D., Jas. L. Claghorn, Wm. P. Wilstach, Charles Godfrey Leland, John H. Towne, Edward S. Cla...

ELECTIONEER!! [Written for " Our D»Uj Pare."] B T P . r . When Presidential fights begin, Or when tho time is nearing, The only way the victors win Is by electioneering. Electioneer, electioneer, the party leaders cry, Wo cannot have a worthy man unless we mean to try. When daughters want to give their hands, To mon their papas frown on, Thoy bother till each countermands The ban of him he's down on.

Nor can the cause, however good, Succeed without the trying: Head-work comes long ere force or blood Refore conversion, lying.

TBIALS OF A COMMITTEE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 17 June 1864
TBIALS OF A COMMITTEE MAN. MR. EDITOR :—It is to be hoped that the Sanitary Commission will appreciate the labors of the ladies and gentlemen who have been acting on the committees of the Central Fair. Those who have not actually been " in the harness" and performed the manual labor of working up the commercial mind to the donation pitch, can hardly comprehend the many and manifold petty annoyances and vexations which have hindered us in our labors of love and charity. Let me give you a few instances of my daily experience while acting as a member of the Committee on . Having every evening, for a fortnight previous, been employed with my wife, her two maiden sisters, five children, and my grandmother, in writing circulars, folding, enveloping, addressing, sticking, and stamping the same, and having duly posted them all at the nearest lamppost, I started off, one misty, moisty morning —that weather being, in my judgment, admirably adapted for keeping my " constituents " at th...
SHAKSPEABE ON THE SWORD. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 17 June 1864
SHAKSPEABE ON THE SWORD. An artist cills our attention to the very spirited DRAWING OF THE SWORD ; he ranks it among the best steel cuts of the day. Price only one dollar. He remarks that SHAKSPEARE, in the matter of the " Two Gentlemen of Verona," had a leaning one way: "Vouchsafe me, for my MUD, but one fair look, A smaller boon than this I cannot beg, And less than this, I am sure, you cannot give"— but, for the artist's part, he is oontented to let the people decide who shall draw the sword from the sheath, with the sheath, and leave a large amount for the Sanitary—say ten thousand dollars—" And less than this, I am sure, you cannot give I"
HOW THE SANITARY IS WORKING IN THE FIELD—NO. 5. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 17 June 1864
HOW THE SANITARY IS WORKING IN THE FIELD—NO. 5. [From Our Correspondent with thy Army of the Potomac. WHITE HOUSE, VA., June 8, 1864. The burial of the dead is a most laborious and interesting branch of the works of the Commission. It is entrusted to one gentleman to superintend, and it may surprise you to know that so few burials have occurred here since this water base has been established. Those who are killed in battle, of course, are not estimated in the records, but of the wounded who are brought to these hospitals, there have been eighty-seven deaths. It is possible that a few may have been buried by their friends outside of the cemetery, and a very few removed to their families, but the number above stated have all received Christian burial, and their names, and the number of their graves, carefully recorded in a book provided for the purpose. There are sever.nl ladies engaged in special duty here, and they all are at liberty to draw on the supplies of the Sanitary Com...
