RECOLLECTIONS OF THE METROPOLITAN FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 20 June 1864
RECOLLECTIONS OF THE METROPOLITAN FAIR. BY A WOUNDED SOLDIER. I have not noticed many very meritorious actors; neither have I recorded some incidents not creditable to the good breeding of some who were connected with our dramatic enterprise. Itisenoughto say thatit was a "success", affording brilliant proof of the talent which lies perdu in so many people, but which, like .every other talent, must be cultivated and trained. I have not mentioned that the play of the "Buzzards" was made excellent by a son and daughter of our excellent President and commanding General. A name which is a synonym of talent, worth and wit, need I be afraid to say Dix 1 Particularly not as the lady no longer bears it. The kindness and talent of a lady who took the role of " Sally," in the " Buzzards," making it inexpressibly funny, must also be noticed. Put in a foot-note, as it were, that these parts, and the "Prologue," spoken first and mentioned last, were not by any means last in the praises of ...
REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 20 June 1864
REFLECTIONS. [On the Geological Formation of Pennsylvania, supposed to bo by Sir CHARLES LTSLL.] As my illustrious Prince has seen fit to contribute a moving poem to the worthy Sanitary Fair, of Philadelphia, I think it a not ignoble use of my pen to furnish a few "reflections" to the same. My travels in the Keystone State a few years since have enlightened me on certain subjects of which my oountrymen are ignorant. For instance, I learned, to my surprise, that Philadelphia is not in the State of Harrisburg, nor Pennsylvania a small town on the Hudson. I learned that all Northerners are not stump speakers, nor all women of the two classes exclusively cultivated by Mr. Martin Chuzzlewit, i. e. Mrs. Jefferson Brick, and the Strong-Minded Woman. On the contrary, though there are not, as with Englishmen, many hun dred thousand descended from as many distinct ancestors, who were, each one, the most distinguished warrior at the battle of Hastings, still there are some who play the...
FREEDOM'S DAWN. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 20 June 1864
FREEDOM'S DAWN. Written for " Our Dallj Fare." BY RICIIARU COS. I sing of freedom to tho slave, E'er yet an hour be past; Wo should not dally with tho wrong, That right may come at last 1 Our brothers' blood, my countrymon, Is crying from tho sod; Then let us purge our statuto-book, And leave results with God! Chaotic darkness filled tho void, When God, in voico of mi^ht, Above this shapeless mass of earth, Proclaimed, " let there he light 1" And lo! upon a thousand bills, And valleys far away; Burst forth in full refulgoncy, Thopuro glad light of day I And yot a greater darkness still, Than filled tho void o'en then, Hath sottled on tho coosciences, And on tho hearts of men ; And now, onco more, the voice of God Is speaking into blrtb, The glorious dawn of freedom's day, To bless tho sons of earth I Up, then, ye hators of the wrong, Ye lovers of tho right, And let your shouts of triumph greet The coining of tho light; Until from evory mountain's height, And every valley's Bed...
NATIONAL SAILORS' FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 20 June 1864
NATIONAL SAILORS' FAIR. We have been requested by our Boston friends to notice in our paper their intended Fair for our sailors, and feel that we cannot do this better than by inserting their own words: "In view of the gigantic and noble efforts of the Sanitary Commission in aid of the soldiers of the country, in this her hour of peril, it has been thought by some that the claims to sympathy and support of an equally deserving class, viz: the Sailors, Marines and others of our naval service, have been too little remembered. It is therefore proposed to make an effort in their behalf, by providing a home for the disabled, where in addition to the oomforts which that name implies, they may enjoy the added reflection that their valuable services to the country are appreciated by a grateful community, who are disposed in this way to express their interest in their welfare. In accordance with this suggestion, it is proposed to hold a Fair in November next, in Boston, Mass., and a ca...
PRACTICAL "LOVE FOB THE SOLDIER." [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 20 June 1864
PRACTICAL "LOVE FOB THE SOLDIER." " Sir PHILIP SIDNEY, at the battle near Zutphen, was wounded by a musket ball, which broke the bone of his thigh. He was carried about a mile and a half to the camp, and being faint with the loss of blood, and probably parched with thirst through the heat of the weather, he oalled for drink. It was immediately brought to him; but, as he was putting the vessel to his mouth, a. poor wounded soldier, who happened at that instant to be carried by him, looked up to it with wishful eyes. The gallant and generous Sidney took the bottle from his mouth and delivered it to the soldier, saying: " Thy necessity is yet greater than mine." —[Murray's English Reader. One is reminded of the above incident, (to be found recorded in a familiar old school book,) by reading the following article from the Sentinel, of Mifilintown, Juniata county, Pennsylvania: LIEUT. OOL. GEO. F. M'FABLAND. We are happy to state that this gentleman has been appointed to a olerkshi...
THE CHROMO-LITHOGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 20 June 1864
THE CHROMO-LITHOGRAPH. The beautiful Chromo-Lithograph in nine colors, of the Buildings of the Great Central Fair, now being struck off at the table in Union Avenue, (and sold at cost) attracts the attention of every visitor. Among the lookers on the other evening, was a gentleman from the country, eta, one or two or three drinking saloons. He planted himself as steadily as circumstances would admit, near the operator of the press, and spoke : " I've been about in my time. I've had my fortergraft took ; I've seen authorgraits, and parrotgrafts in the papers, and other kind of grafts, but I never see, no never, at any table, such another crumb-lifter-graft as you've got there. Never, nev-er."—He bought one for family use. COMFORT IN ADVERSITY.—A lady complains that she has received too many papers for her money.
THE SANITARY COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 20 June 1864
THE SANITARY COMMISSION. ITS ORIGIN, ITS OBJECTS, AND ITS WORK, NO. 2. niHE beneficent work done by the Sanitary Commission may be classified under two general heads, viz: Sanitary Inspection and Army Relief. Of the nature and happy results of the former, which was the original object of the Commission, we gave some account in our last number. We propose now to consider the latter as fully as our limited spaoe will permit. Army Relief consists mainly in the distribution and application of the generous donations made for the patriotic people of the country for the comfort of their soldiers. Early in the war, large quantities of vegetable food, fruits, delicacies, luxuries and other supplies of a character not furnished by the Government, were sent forward to particular regiments, and for the volunteers from particular States, but owing to the absence of any organized means for their distribution, a very large proportion of them was wasted. Boxes and bales of life-saving and lif...
TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 20 June 1864
TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS. Some of our subscribers, as we are informed, have been charged postage on their copies of Our Daily Fare by the Postmasters at the place of delivery. This is all wrong, and such postage should be refunded, for we have been enabled through the kindness of C. A. WALBORN, Esq., Postmaster of Philadelphia, to make a special arrangement by which all the postage on our country subscriptions has been pre-paid here. In every oase where a subscriber fails (through our fault) to get a complete set of the twelve numbers, we will feel obliged if such person gives us notioe, as it is our intention to supply every one of our generous patrons with a full set, even if we have to reprint some of the numbers. LARGE ABMIE8. The best answer to those who fear that our immense armies might, under bad and designing men, be tempted to destroy the liberties of our oountry, is the reflection of Sir JAMES MCINTOSH. He says: " A small army may have sentiments different from the grea...

THE GREAT VASE. Some one suggests that this vase should be purchased for the Presidential Mansion, to be used but not taken away by the successive incumbents of the presidential office; that is to say, that it should be part of the national plate belonging to the people themselves. The idea strikes us very favorably, for as a present to a private individual it would be rather a burden. Even our Presidents generally retire to such very moderate establishments that so magnificent a work of art would be rather out of keeping. Will some one then start" The White House" as a place of permanent deposit for this memorial of our Fair'! In voting for this disposition of it, let every one remember he is voting to give it to himself and his children forever. Every other article of the Fair will go into private hands. Let us give this one a chance to be preserved where it can be seen, that every vestige of this great Pennsylvania Fair be not lOBt.
II on mm CUM FAIR [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 20 June 1864
II on mm CUM FAIR fYS Saturday the crowd was not so great as ^ on the other days of last week, a circumstance attributable to the difficulty experienced by visitors from abroad reaching their homes after a late stay at the Fair on the last day of the week. We resume our notices of the great departments of the Fair. HORTICULTURAL DEPARTMENT. Next to the Art Gallery there is no more beautiful display than that made in the Horticultural Department, where nature and art have combined to furnish a magnificent exhibition. With many visitors the horticultural display ranks above that presented in the Art Gallery, and we have no reason to quarrel with the decision. Nothing like it has ever been seen in this country, and to all visitors it must be a matter of profound regret that such a fairy creation will soon pass away from sight forever. The visitors upon entering the rotunda have spread out before them a rare display of plants, fruits, and flowers, arranged with faultless skill a...
HOW THE SANITARY IS WORKING IN THE FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 20 June 1864
HOW THE SANITARY IS WORKING IN THE FIELD. [Letter from Dr. Stciner.] SANITARY COMMISSION, HEADQUARTERS FIELD RELIEF CORFS , Army of Potomac, 12 miles from Richmond, June 6, 1864. MY DEAR MR. STILLIJ:—Our friend JOHNSON suggested that a line from here to you for the Sanitary paper would be acceptable; accordingly, I take the pen and shall try to comply with his suggestion. Separated as we are from the comforts of home and home-life, writing is by no means an easy task, still, what we can do, to show the liberal public who bestow their wealth lavishly on the army, is always freely done. You all know, more or less, what this heroic army has done sinoe the morning of the 6th ultimo; how it braved the deadly fire of the Wilderness, underwent the bloody battles of Spottsylvania, fought at Jericho Crossing, on the North Anna, and, having crossed the Pamunkey, has fought day and night for the reconstruction of our glorious Union and there-establishment of the reign of law and order. I...

THE 8AJTITABY COMMISSION ITS ORIGIN—ITS OBJECTS AND ITS WOKK—NO. 8. [BY W. V. MoKEAN.] In this last of our series of articles on the Sanitary Commission, it is our purpose to describe in a cursory manner the organization, the means, and the work of the Commission.

TEE PAIS MOVEMENT IN THE LOYAL STATES-NO. 12. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 21 June 1864
TEE PAIS MOVEMENT IN THE LOYAL STATES-NO. 12. THE Pittsburgh Fair, of whioh we gave some account in our tenth number, closed on Saturday (18th June.) The proceeds amounted to the very handsome sum of three hundred thousand dollars. Every one must say that our sister city has done not only well but nobly. Several great Fairs have been unavoidably omitted from this history of the Fair Movement. We tried to get aocounts of all of them but without avail. Of the Fairs in this category we were particularly desirous to present the principal features of those held at Washington, Baltimore, Albany and St. Louis, in February, March, April and May of this year, but we could procure no satisfactory descriptions of them. We see it stated in the journals of the day that the prooeeds of the St. Louis Fair amounted to the magnificent sum of $575,000.

To their powerful assistance the Commission is indebted for the greater part of its success ; indeed the Commission is but the means by which the Branches which furnish the great bulk of the supplies are enabled to act with economy, system and efficiency.

TEE TWO BBECKINBIBOES. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 21 June 1864
TEE TWO BBECKINBIBOES. BY JOHN W. FORNEY. The appearance of the Rev. Dr. R. J. Breckinridge, as ie advanced to take his post as temporary chairman of the Union National Convention at Baltimore, on the 7th of June, (inst.,) was most impressive. There stood one of the historical characters of the age—a spotless divine, a self-sacrificing idealist, an unselfish patriot—one, across whose eventful path not a single doubt as to his sinoerity had ever thrown a shadow, and whose lofty moral integrity had never been questioned either by the enemies of his church or the advocates of slavery. What he said before the Convention has been widely and profitably read. But how he said it could not be painted or printed, first of all, was the evidence, not necessary to be made clear to those who sat in rapt attention under his utterances, of ihe perfect unpreparednesa of his speech. The short-hand reporters took it down as it fell from his lips, and then carried it to Washington by the even- ...
GOOD BYE. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 21 June 1864
GOOD BYE. TN the beautiful fairy tale of "Cinderella" the heroine agrees to disappear when the hand of .the dock points to the magioal number of twelve, and no matter what her occupation or where she may be at that hour, she returns to the humble position she had formerly occupied. As we all know, the hour arrives when the ball is at its height, when the music and the danoe have not begun to flag, and all is ;' merry as a marriage bell." Her fate, however,, is inexorable. Our own case is very like that, of Cinderella. We contraoted with our subscribers for twelve papers, and all the machinery which it has been found necessary to set in operation to perform our contraot has been wound up to run twelve days and no longer. Our allotted time has expired, and though the Fair goes on, and the fun and frolio is continued, we must leave our exalted position , and return to those from which our good godmother, the Executive Committee, first took us. Hereafter, then, gentle reader, be y...
THANKS. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 21 June 1864
THANKS. In dosing up accounts in the terminal number of Our Daily Fart we feel it to be due to the printers, Messrs. RINGWALT & BROWN, NO. Ill & 113 South Fourth street, their foremen, compositors and pressmen, for the beautiful style in whioh the paper has been delivered from the press. We venture to say that no journal with a daily issue of over ten thousand oopies, ever published in this country, equals it in typographical appearance. The paper upon whioh it is printed, purchased of JBSSUP & MOORI, is deserving of equal praise. The best skill of the printer is lost when the paper falls below the standard neoessary for a dear and beautiful impression. ACCORDING TO DR. ABBRNETHY, all human maladies arise from two causes—staffing and fretting.
