THE GARIBALDI DAGGER. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 21 June 1864
THE GARIBALDI DAGGER. The Garibaldi dagger, whioh is sent by the Metropolitan Fair to the Great Central Fairas in olden times they passed the sword from hand to hand that each loyal Knight might swear anew his allegiance to the Holy Cause was given by the great Garibaldi to Mr. Joseph Antoni of Turin. That gentleman, wishing to send what he valued most to the cause of American Unity, asked permission of Garibaldi to send this dagger, engraved with his own hand, and marked in ink by himself—this dagger, worn by Garibaldi in most of his famous battles—this dagger, which formed part of the humble red-shirt and round-oap uniform (probably the most famous dress of modern times)—this dagger now remains to be seen and " allotted" by oilr loyal oitizens. Would it be improper to suggest that as so few names have been subscribed thus far it should be bought by subscription to be given to Gen. Grant. It is already marked "G. G.," and it would thus pass from the hand of one noble soldie...
THE INDIAN EXHIBITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 21 June 1864
THE INDIAN EXHIBITIONS. Almost the onl y romantio incident of American history, certainly the most interesting, is the rescue of Captain JOHN SMITH by the Indian prinoess POCAHONTAS. At the request of several of our oitiiens, the indefatigable gentleman having charge of the Indian Exhibition has succeeded in producing this beautiful incident of savage life in all its details. The council-fire of the braves, the spirited harangue, delivered with all the characteristic energy of the Indian nature, the fatal decision, the victim dragged to execution, the whole band dancing and screaming in anticipation of his fate, are all most accurately presented. As the weapon is raised to destroy Captain SMITH, the beautiful POCAHONTAS rushes in, and by her influence, saves his life. The exhibition of oourse inoludes other novel and interesting peculiarities of savage life, and is one of the most agreeable features of the Fair. It will be long before the publio will again have an opportunity ...

LIGHT IN DARKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 21 June 1864
LIGHT IN DARKNESS. (Written for Our Dsllj «••«.] BT HOBA01 OMELIT. I. 0 GOD! our way through darkness leads, But Thine Is living light: Teach us to feel that Day succeeds To each slow-wearing Night: Make us to know, though Pain and Woe Beset our mortal lives, That 111 at last in death lies low, And only Good survives." n. Too long th' oppressor's iron heel The saintly brow has pressed; Too oft the tyrant's murd'rous steel Has pierced the guiltless breast: Tet in our souls the seed shall lie, Till Thou shalt bid it thrive, Of steadfast faith that Wrong shall die, And only Right survive. in. We walk in shadow; thickest walls Do man from man divide; Our brothers spurn our tenderest calls, Our holiest aims deride: Yet though fell Craft, with fiendish thought Its snbtle web contrives, Still Falsehood's textures shrink to naught, And only Truth survives. IV. Wrath clouds our sky; War lifts on htgh His flag of crimson stain: Each monstrous birth o'erspreads the earth In Battle's go...
OUR LAST GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 21 June 1864
OUR LAST GOSSIP. We are making up our twelfth number, and the time has come to say good-bye ! Little knowest thou, O, reader, of the long nights when we kept it up till broad day-light—of the wearisome labors performed around our altar the imposing stone, which we now regard as our rea .1 Ehrcnbreitslein, or Broad Stone of Honor. But let most of that honor be given where it is justly due—to faithful Mr. JOHNSTON, our foreman, who knew not sleep or fatigue, " or any other man," while there remained an error to correct or an obstinate " space " to be pushed down. Valele et plaudite! Depart and say a good word for us if you can, but believe that there were none among us who did not at least work hard to deserve it. Daily Fare—fare-well!
LETTEB FROM JOHN STUART MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 21 June 1864
LETTEB FROM JOHN STUART MILL. [Written to the Editorial Committee of Our Daily Fare.J I am sincerely thankful to the Editing Committee for including me among those from whom they have invited a public expression of sympathy with the cause in which the Free States of America are so heroically shedding their best blood. The war, justifiable and laudable even if it had continued to be, as it was at first, one of mere resistance to the extension of slavery, is becoming, as it was easy to foresee it would, more and more a war of principle for the complete extirpation of that curse. And in proportion as this has become apparent, the sympathies of nearly all in Europe whose approbation is worth having, are resuming their natural course, and the cause of the North will soon have no enemies, on this side of the Atlantic, but those who prefer any tyronny, however odious, to a triumph of popular government. It would be unpardonable, did I omit, on an occasion like this, to express my war...
THE FAIR BUILDINGS [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 September 1865
THE FAIR BUILDINGS WERE erected on the walks of Logan Square, whioh lies between Eighteenth and Nineteenth Streets and Race and Vine Streets, in the city of Philadelphia. They required for their construction more than a million and a half feet of lumber, and covered a superficial area of more than two hundred thousand square feet. They have been technically described as follows: " Union Avenue was the main structure of the group, which formed the Fair buildings; was five hundred and forty feet long and sixtyfour feet wide, with an'elevation from the floor to the point of the arch of fifty-one feet. The Gothic arch of this building was formed with rafters, constructed with the Howe Truss, each rafter being two feet in depth and six inches wide, with panels two feet wide, in each of whioh were two main braces and one counter brace two inches square; the chords were of three by six inch soantling.

THE CLOSING CEREMONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 September 1865
THE CLOSING CEREMONIES. The Fair was kept open for three weeks, a longer period than had been originally contemplated, and during that whole period, the enthusiasm remained unabated. The attractive goods on the tables were soon disposed of; but while any were left, purchasers were found; and the zeal and devotion of the ladies of the different Committees were unflagging to the last. And here, perhaps, we should speak of one characteristic of the Fair—the perfect refinement and good broeding so conspicuous in its whole management. That young ladies of the highest social position should have sustained the part of amateur sales-women, without, in any instance, being subjected to the slig htest rudeness from any one in that motley throng,—that they should have moved about at all times in full toilette amidst the vast multitude, with the same ease, security and freedom, as they would have done had they been in their own homes, was certainly not the least suggestive of all the sug...

OUR SUPPLEMENTAL NUMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 September 1865
OUR SUPPLEMENTAL NUMBER. Our readers will remember, that in the last issue of our paper, we promised at some future day to give them a supplementary number, which should contain a list of those who had been active in getting us subscribers, and such facts and statistics regarding the fair as could only be obtained after it had been closed. We did not then anticipate it would be necessary to delay the performance of our promise for so long a time, but the machinery set in operation by the Fair had been so vast, that to give the results of its operations with anything like accuracy has, only very lately, been possible. It suggested itself to our minds that it would be a good idea to give the names of all who had been active in their exertions and liberal in their contributions to the Fair, and we had made some progress in that direction. We soon, however, found that in any space that we could command, it was quite out of the question. We have, therefore, confined ourselves t...
