From this point there is a fine view of the cave, whioh presents the illusive appearance of being an extended cavern or subterranean passage underlying the whole mountain. The music of the trickling water falls pleasantly on the ear, and the lights, seen in the distance, lend enchantment to the view. The second section of the central figure is a faithful representation of a white-pine forest, the profile of the ground or side of the hill being in strict congruity with the trees and vegetation.

THE FAIR MOVEMENT IV THE LOYAL STATES.—Ho. 9. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 18 June 1864

THE FAIR MOVEMENT IV THE LOYAL STATES.—Ho. 9. THE PITTSBURGH SANITARY FAIR. rpHE Fair at Pittsburgh had its origin in very •*• much the same motives which had influenced the friends of the Commission at Chicago. No city in the country is more eminently loyal or devoted to the cause of the soldier than Pittsburgh, but a constant drain upon the sources of supplies in kind, seemed nearly to have exhausted them. The Sanitary Commission has a most active agency in that city, presided over by the well known Christian philanthropist, J. R. BRUKOT, Esq., a gentleman whose warm heart led him to every battle-field in the earlier history of the war, and whose devotion to the wounded on the Peninsula was re warded by an imprisonment of some length in the filthy dungeons at Richmond. The agency of the Commission at that point has not only taken oare of the sick and wounded soldiers at the front, but it has remembered also those who passed through that city on their way to the army. It su...

ITEMS BY A CAVALRY MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 18 June 1864

ITEMS BY A CAVALRY MAN. BUZZARD'S ROOST, May, 1864. On the march from Stevenson, Alabama, to Bridgeport, in September, 1863, the wagon trains passed by way of a pontoon bridge across the Tennessee, while we forded the stream several miles above. The ford was the deepest we had ever seen, our horses swimming for many yards, while we sat like monkeys on the saddles, with our legs curled under us. Now and then a plunge, and a volley of not very suppressed exeorations, told of a drenched soldier and dripping baggage, lost frying-pans or esoaped housewives. Tired and wet, we eneamped for the night at Cave Springs, at the foot of Raccoon Mountain, a spur of the since famous Lookout. The next morning a party of us set out to explore Hill's Cave, which was discovered last spring, and might pass for the original of Cudjo's Cave, did it not labor under the disadvantage of being some miles south of that classic rendezvous. Provided with torches, we descended into the habitation of the ...

SMALL ITEMS OF THE FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 18 June 1864

SMALL ITEMS OF THE FAIR. We owe many thanks to the Evening Bulletin, as indeed to The Press, North American, and nearly every journal in Philadelphia, for favors shown to our little sheet. But special gratitude is due to the proprietors of the newspaper first mentioned, from the fact that they have every day sent promptly to our table several copies of their second edition, all of which have passed from the hands of our Daily Fairies like hot cakes. As this phrase is Frenoh we will not apologize for it with quotation marks Apropos of those same Fairies, one being asked why all were dressed in black and white, remarked briefly: " Printers ink on paper." The Delaware dames have certainly contrived to put some very fascinating specimens of Blue Hen's Chickens on guard over their goods. Our Daily Fare, is, we believe, not bad, but if it required any additions it should oertainly be from such poultry, to be treated, of oourse, en gallant me. There now, get out your cook-books !

THE SANITARY COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 18 June 1864

THE SANITARY COMMISSION. ITS ORIGIN, ITS OHJECTS, AND ITS WOllK. TT has been a principal object of the conduo--*- tors of this little journal to give it permanent value by making it a record of the Fair movement throughout the loyal States, as well as an exponent of our own Great Fair. To this end we have published a series of articles relating to all the great Fairs in aid of the Sanitary Commission of which we could procure satisfactory accounts. Being well assured of the value of such a record, we took an additional step and sent a correspondent to the Army of the Potomao to procure authentic accounts of the system, and the means by which the bounty "of the people, contributed through Fairs and otherwise, is distributed among the soldiers, and applied according to the design of the donors, in actual practice in the field. The letters of this correspondent, giving full and satisfactory details on those important points, are now in course of publication, the one printed thi...

LIBERALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 18 June 1864

LIBERALITY. It is said by people who know, that it is much pleasanter to give than to receive. Our own experience being confined principally to the former, we cannot pretend to be a judge in the matter, but we take the maxim on trust, and are duly grateful that we are not subjected to anything less pleasant than giving. The various devices in the Fair enable us to gratify our desires in this respect to the fullest extent and at the very lowest price. We daily make some handsome present to the most distinguished men of our oountry. We are constantly giving silver vases, swords, canes, baby houses, Afghans, screens and coverlids to Presidents and Generals, and have aoquired, by the occasional expenditure of fifty cents, quite a patronizing air in speaking of these celebrities. There is really nothing in the world like associated capital. It effects all the great objects of the Commission, and elevates us, by the disbursement of postage currency, into a liberal benefaotor of our ...

Dm Of IGBEAT CBITBAL FAIR [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 18 June 1864

Dm Of IGBEAT CBITBAL FAIR THE PRESIDENT'S VISIT. The visit of our worthy President, on Thursday last, in company with Mrs. Lincoln and General Lew Wallace, was an event in the history of the Fair, and the occasion will not soon be forgotten by those who were fortunate enough to be present. A dense crowd of people assembled in Union avenue to greet the Chief Magistrate of the nation, and the scene at the moment the President entered the eastern door, as witnessed from the musio gallery was one of Btriking magnificence. Beneath the waving banners and flags of all nations was the surging mass of ladies and gentlemen, all decked in their holiday attire, and all bent upon a view of the President. Mr. Lincoln's form towered far above the heads of the people, and at every turn he was saluted with the hearty cheers of those present. Tiny flags were waved by tiny hands; handkerchiefs and fans did duty with those of larger growth, hats were whirled high in air, and, altogether, the like...

RECOLLECTIONS OF THE METROPOLITAN FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 18 June 1864

RECOLLECTIONS OF THE METROPOLITAN FAIR. BT A WOUNDED SOLDIER. The Dramatic Committee, like the Constitution of the United States, was destined to a more important work than its original framers imagined. It was constituted to draw into the insatiate maw of the Fair all of those things represented by the term " Publio Amusements." Private theatricals were at first deemed rather impossible, in so immense a society as that of New York, made up, too, of such different elements. Mr. Wallaok, as the veteran of the drama, was first npproaohed, and readily responded with " Rosedale," whioh brought the Committee in $904, and the check for the same was given at a private supper the same evening. The other theatres, such as Mrs. John Wood's and others, responded most generously. Mrs. General Fremont (one of the members of the Committee, and whose ability is immeasureable) got up an opera of " Cinderella " at Niblo's. The troupe was composed of her own children and those of her friends,...

WILLIAM PENN. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 18 June 1864

WILLIAM PENN. From Bancroft's History of the United States we extract the following truthful remarks in reference to the great founder of our noble State, the only one in the Union named after its founder: " This is the praise of W ILLIAM PENN, that in an age which had seen a popular revolution shipwreck popular liberty among selfish factions; which had seen HUGH P ETERS and HENRY VANE perish by the hangman's cord and the axe; in an ago where SIDNEY nourished the pride of patriotism rather than the sentiment of philanthropy; when RUSSELL stood for the liberties of his order, and not for new enfranchisements, and SHAFTSBCRY and LOCKE thought government should rest on property, PENN did not despair of humanity, and though all history and experience denied the sovereignty of the people, dared to oherish the noble idea of man's capacity for self-government. ****** * There is nothing in the history of the human race like the confidence which the simple vir tues and institutions o...

HOW THE SANITARY IS WORKING IN THE FIELD.—No. 6. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 18 June 1864

HOW THE SANITARY IS WORKING IN THE FIELD.—No. 6. [From onr Correspondent with the Army of the Potomac.] WHITE HOUSE, June 10, 1864. To-day nearly one thousand Confederate prisoners left this place for "Lookout." Some of them were sick and wounded. These were placed in tents, and a requisition sent to the nearest station of the Commission for canned fruit and beef, lemons, farina, rice, soft crackers, &c, which were freely given, and most gratefully received. As those who were able marched upon the boat, a Union officer, who stood near, said, " I have only returned from Richmond a few months since, and I can but think of my imprisonment there as being in strong contrast with the imprisonment of these men. I am glad of it. I am proud of our Government, that in its determined patriotism it is not cruel or vindictive." No rebel soldier, when he falls among us, is neglected because he is a rebel. In visiting the different encampments to-day I was impressed with the number o...

GREAT CENTRAL FAIR BUILDINGS, Logan Square, Philadelphia, June, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 20 June 1864

GREAT CENTRAL FAIR BUILDINGS, Logan Square, Philadelphia, June, 1864. The artist who prepared the above out of the outside of the Great Central Fair Buildings in Logan Square, specially for the pages of " OUR DAILY FABK," has done bis work so well as to leave but little room for description or explanation. The thoroughfares which form tho extreme foreground of the picture are Nineteenth aud Vine Streets. The door of entranoe nearest to the person examining the picture is at the northwest corner of the Square, and the perspeetive sweeps in a southerly and eastwardly direction over the roofs and spires of the city. The noble structure which looms up in the background, upon the left hnnd side of the pielure. is the Cathedral of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, the finest specimen of cburoh architecture in the oity.

THE FAIB MOVEMENT IN TEE LOYAL STATES.—Ko. 11. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 20 June 1864

THE FAIB MOVEMENT IN TEE LOYAL STATES.—Ko. 11. THE GREAT CENTRAL FAIR AT PHILADELPHIA. TT was hardly to be expected that Philadelphia ¦ *¦ should escape the general contagion which had extended into other parts of the oountry. No city, as is well known, has been more conspicuous than this, for devotion to the cause of the soldier, or for contributions to his relief, by means of organizations of all kinds. The Sanitary Commission has had, for a long time, an active and flourishing agency here, whioh, during the last two years, has collected more than one hundred and twenty thousand dollars, contributed exclusively by our citizens, besides maintaining a depot of army supplies under the charge of the ladies, whioh has gathered in from this State, and the surrounding States, an immense quantity of supplies, whioh have been sent forward to the Army of the Potomac The Exeoutive Committee of the Philadelphia Associates were well satisfied with the regular normal and steady supply o...

THE NEW JERSEY DEPARTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 20 June 1864

THE NEW JERSEY DEPARTMENT. [For Our Daily Fare.] MY DIAS MR. EDITOR : Though you do say That " poetry " comes by tho ton every day, And though you return a most chilling reply To each fledgling who offers his pinions to try, Yet I beg you will soften your rigorous laws, And admit me this once, for tho sako of my cause. While varying plaudits all round us are rung, Why should not the claims of New Jersey bo sung? For some of her people, at least, have proved true, Aud wreathed with fresh laurels the old "Jersey Blue." See how richly she piles up her offerings to-day I Let mo act cicerone, and show you the way, And first, as we enter, she offers you hero A tempting array of most excellent cheer; And, let me assure you, her strawberry cream Might furnish the stuff for an epicure's dream. But the dishes stand empty, just now to our viow, With buyer and seller alike looking blue—So bear your privation as well as you're able, And cross with me o'er to the opposito table. And here wh...
