ARTICLES VOTED FOR. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 September 1865

ARTICLES VOTED FOR. There were a number of single objects of interest, presented to the Fair, which were disposed of by suffrage. Any one desirous to vote, by paying a certain sum, was allowed to enter upon a book, the name of the person to whom he wished the article in question presented. Whoever received the greatest number of suffrages, was entitled to the article. SILVER FIRE HORN. A very exoiting struggle took place for a handsome silver horn, which had been given to the Fair by the America Hose Company, No. 17. The candidates here were not brave or successful Generals, but Fire Engine Companies, and their popularity or usefulness was to be attested by the number of votes each received. This contest excited a very general interest among the members of the Fire Department. The amount realized was $6,962.50.

This Avenue, although last to be mentioned in our sketches, deserves the first praise from all who can admire that which is grand in architecture, beautiful in deooration, and complete in appointments. Viewed from the music gallery at the west end, the scene is one of rare beauty. Banners, flags and trophies meet the glance at every turn, and the rich display of colors in the goods on the shelves and counters is almost enough to bewilder, if not weary the eye. The collection in Union Avenue alone is well worth the price of admission charged for the whole building. Nothing like it has ever been seen in this country, and never will be again for generations to come. The grand fairs of the old world sink into insignificance compared with this exhibition. Everything from a horse shoe to a bride's trousseau, or from a penny whistle to a velvet carpet can be secured without difficulty in Union Avenue, and to those about setting up housekeepin...
