LEA, MISS GRACE KIERNAN. MISS LAURA HOOPER, MISS DELIMA BLAIS. At the time of our Fair, there had been no objections made by either those in authority, or those who claim to have in charge the public morals, to the system of raffles, which had been extensively used in most all fairs, both for the Church and other public charities. We therefore made large use of that means of disposing of articles of large value, and realized many thousands of dollars by it, more than we should otherwise have done. Everything received and sold at the Fair was altogether for the benefit of the Fair. Nothing was received...
THE FAIR MOVEMENT IN THE LOYAL STATES.—No. 4. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
THE FAIR MOVEMENT IN THE LOYAL STATES.—No. 4. THE BOSTON FAIR. [For the following sketch of the Boston Fair the Editorial Committee are indebted to a gentleman of Boston, " who sent it in current letter-form to CHARLES J. STILLE, Esq., the writer of the preceding sketches on the same general subject.] IT was early in the month of May of the last year that some of the members of the Committee on Finance of the New England Branch of the Sanitary Commission, fearing there would be some difficulty in the autumn in obtaining means to carry on the necessary work to be done in the city of Boston, (there had been a monthly subscription promised during most of the summer,) started the project of holding a ladies' fair on a small scale. It was first proposed to hold it in the early autumn, hoping to realize some $20,000 or $25,000, but as the affair progressed the time of holding the Fair was postponed until the second week of December, and the general interest expressed by the ladies o...
THE TURKISH DIVAN. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
THE TURKISH DIVAN. A meditative smoker in this cozy apartment, where one might almost believe in the Koran and forget the Western world, acquainted with the hook-and-eye letters of Arabic, has translated one of the "arabesques"—flourishes and all—thus: Fatima's eyes inflamed his heart j He fed the Are—he was but man—Tobacco bought: " All ends in smoke," Thus spoke, and entered the Divan . To which an indignant lady who has just read the MS., replies: There's where he ought to go—the Turk I Nor to Fatima's love aspire; Of battle he might smell the smoke, But he could not, I'm sure, stand Are t

FOP GOES THE EASEL. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
FOP GOES THE EASEL. BY L. It. Thanks to the locomotive, longjourneys can be quickly made, and at the time of the New York Sanitary Fair, I, a quiet individual from the City of Brotherly Love, found myself, in less than five hours after deciding upon the trip, amid the bustle and turmoil of Gotham. The Fourteenth street building being the great attraction, I wended my way thither, and having determined to spend greenbacks freely in the good cause, I wandered about, looking for something in which utility and ornament should be combined. Shoes that would fit Goliath—gloves made tor a Lilliputian—bells without clappers—and every kind of worthless trumpery was offered by pretty saleswomen. One bright-eyed g irl called my attention to a beautiful easel, six feet in height. She soon persuaded me a parlor was an unfurnished room without this piece of furniture, and having paid the money, my purchase was sent to a carriage. The driver was obliged to put it in front of him, the legs pro...
A MODEL LETTEB. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
A MODEL LETTEB. We commend the following to any wealthy gentleman desirous of "improving an opportunity :" " PHILADELPHIA, March 14, 1864. " C ALEB COPE, Esq. : " My Dear Sir: I enclose you two donations for the ' Great Central Fair for the Sanitary Commission.' First, a check for fifty dollars; and a word or two in reference to this amount may induce others to do likewise. A portion of this sum is the proceeds from a sale of useless articles which had been accumulating for years, and only needlessly occupying room in'our house, and I thought the best disposition 1 could make of them would be to sell them and g ive the money resulting, to your Fair, and here it is, with an amount added to make it an even fifty dollars. The second donation is the deed for a lot of ground in the Fifteenth Ward. You may ask, ' What are we to do with a donation of this kind ?' Put it in the hands of an auctioneer and sell it, and apply the proceeds, through your noble Commission, to assist the b...
" ALL'S FAIH IN WAB." [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
" ALL'S FAIH IN WAB." General SCOTT proposed, it is said, that this should be a war of infantry. General MACLELLAN thought of making it one of artillery. A friend of ours, who is in the Commission business, still holds, apparently, to the artillery theory in another department. He thinks that the wounded soldiers should be managed entirely by the great Canonists. It certainly is not a bad idea that a man after he has been badly Cannoned should be well Canonized. To be sure it is the very reverse of the old saying that nilrum succeeded mitrum, and Salt Petre came after Saint PETER. For our own part, we wish "everybody luck all around," and sincerely trust, heart and soul, that in the noble rivalry of doing good every one may win. "Benevolence," in the language of the virtuous SUGGS, " is the only lottery where there is nary blank."
IN HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
IN HOSPITAL. [Wrlttso for '•Our ntiljr Pare."l BY EDITH MIT. Lying here in a hospital ward Is miglity fine, for a fortnight or BO ; But a man can't oat jelly all day, yon know. Oh, for a turn in tho hospital yard, Side by side, up and down, with tho guard. Oh, for a " Forward March I" but, oh, With no fingers to fool for my rifle lock, And a leg full of springs, like a Yankee clock, I couldn't very well go. I've boon in most of the battles out Yi est, And I fight them over again Many a time when I seem to rest, hying hero in the hospital ward, Dozing by day or dreaming by night. Our Western boys fight hard, And every battle's " the bloodiest yet;" But there's ono wo are none of us like to forget I mean that two day's fight, Begun on a Sunday, an hour before light; Just such a sunshiny, breezy day As this; but early in April—not May; And tho orchard off to our left was rod With sweet peach blossoms, liko that on the hill Yonder. They drifted over our dead; They were pelte...
WHAT " SPECIAL BELIEF" MEANS. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
WHAT " SPECIAL BELIEF" MEANS. A city correspondent, evidently gifted with a talent for investigation, wants to know what the " Sanitary people" mean by " special relief." He shrewdly observes that a great deal of money is devoted to this branch of the service, and he would like to have it made plain to his understanding who or what the objects are, that are so particularly cared for under this peculiar head. What may be the nature of his speculations or suspicions in the premises we can only conjecture. He may regard this relief as spirituous rather than spiritual, more in the nature of enjoyment for the Commissioners than for the comfort of the soldiers. Not to put too fine a point upon the matter, it may mean brandy and water, and cigars and things. He is clearly in the state of mind of that fine figurative orator who " smells n rat, hears it brewing in the storm, and is resolved to nip it in the bud." Of course we feel it incumbent on our editorial staff to answer the que...
OPEN AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
OPEN AGAIN. TT is really wonderful how a Fair grows on ¦ *- one. We hardly were conscious of it, until it closed upon us so unexpectedly for a few hours on Wednesday. We were just getting into the spirit of it, and were looking forward to an uninterrupted stretch of enjoyment, when we had an afternoon and evening thrown upon our hands. But like a great many of the disappointments of life, it was a fortunate circumstance for us, and we have no doubt for all of those engaged about the Fair. The labor of preparation had been very great, and most people had got very much behindhand in sleeping and eating when the Fair opened. The excitement kept us all up, and no one realized how tired he or she was, until an opportunity of repose presented itself. The break has, in nautical language, enabled us to make up our " lee way," and we start anew, fresh and vigorous. The tables are all dressed, the goods all arranged, the prices all marked, so that the business of life is now literally t...
THE BIGHT VIEW OF THE CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
THE BIGHT VIEW OF THE CASE. Soon after the commencement of the Revolutionary War a farmer, residing near Philadelphia, addressed his neighbors as follows: " I have observed that some of you are surprised that, with so many inducements as I have to remain at home, I should quit my family for the fatigues and dangers of war. I am an American, and determined to be free. I was born free; I have never forfeited my birthright, nor will I ever—like Esau—sell it for a mess of pottage I will part with my life sooner than my liberty. God Almighty gave me my life and my property, and as a necessary means among others, that of preserving and enjoying it; and it is only lie that hath an absolute right and power to take it away. Let no one, therefore, wonder if of all earthly comforts my Creator has bestowed on me, I do most esteem my liberty."
ORNITHOLOGICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
ORNITHOLOGICAL. England is justly proud of her NIOHTINGALE, the music of whose good deeds rang world wide — but what should our pride be who have seen, in this land, since the war begun, scores of thousands of suffering soldiers relieved by a countless choir of "Nightingales," each not inferior to her whose surname is FLORENCE—truly the beautiful.
AN APPBOPBIATE TBIBTJTE. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
AN APPBOPBIATE TBIBTJTE. A number of our fellow-citizens desirous of expressing, in some manner, their gratitude to General MEADE, who, with his brave army at Gettysburg, saved our city from violation and outrage, presented to his wife, on the day of the opening of our Fair, a handsome residence completely furnished. It was fit that there should be some lasting memorial of such services, and it was highly appropriate that he, who had been so instrumental in preserving the homos and firesides of us all, should be provided by his fellow-citizens with a home and fireside of his own. The General has earned new laurels upon every field in which his heroic army has since been engaged. He adds to the obligations more rapidly than we can acknowledge them. And though we cannot adequately requite his services, it will cheer him, in his high career of honor and duty, to feel that at least we are not unmindful of them.
DDR DWI KiBAT CIITBAL FAIB [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
DDR DWI KiBAT CIITBAL FAIB The New Jersey Department---Facts, Fancy, and Gossip. OUR Great Central Fair is a success more complete than its most sanguine friends dreamed of. Thousands have been realized where hundreds were expected; hundreds came in the place of tens, and mites have rolled up into tens with most marvelous rapidity. The crowd of visitors yesterday and last evening were without precedent, the doors being besieged for hours before they were opened, and every part of the vast range of buildings being overrun during the entire day and evening. The scene was of that description which sets description at defiance, all known adjectives failing to convey any adequate idea of the real condition of things at the Fair. NEW JERSEY. Both New Jersey and Delaware united heartily in the enterprise which has culminated in the Great Central Fair, and the citizens of those States have been lavish in their contributions to the good cause. Two avenues are set apart for the displa...
JULIN: AN ORIGINAL POEM, WRITTEN FOR "OUR DAILY FARE," BY EMANUEL GEIBEL. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
JULIN: AN ORIGINAL POEM, WRITTEN FOR "OUR DAILY FARE," BY EMANUEL GEIBEL. We lay with pleasure before our readers one of two poems written for our journal by EMANIEL GEIDEL, the greatest living poet of Germany. Tho translation is by our colleague, Mrs. ROBERT M. HOOPER, who chances to have made a specialty of translating from this writer, as is shown in the greater portion of an exquisite little volume by her, which has recently been published by F. LEYPOLM 1 , consisting of lyrics from OEIBEL. In explanation of the poem, wo would state that Julin, or Vinctum, was a flourishing city in the 8th century, on the Baltic coast, but which, like Agnanum, near Naples, or tho glorious city built by the god Baly, of Indian legend, sunk beneath the waves. JULIN. Es rauscht dcr Wind, cs rinnt (lie Welle, Benuegclt schwelit das Schiff dahin; An jencs Krcidefelsens Schwello Dort, sagt dcr Schiffer, lag Julin. Julin die hohe Stadt am Sundo, Die still die Meorflut ueberschwoll; Wie klingte ...
EXPERIENCES OF A CHAIRMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 11 June 1864
EXPERIENCES OF A CHAIRMAN. I am Chairman of the Ladies' Committee for the Department of Singing Birds and Pet Animals. How we have managed the matter I leave to the public to determine. I think the collections displayed will be acknowledged to be both choice and curious, and I trust it will be productive of good financial results. The liberality of many dealers in those objects will be attested by the tickets which may be seen appended to our presents — the generosity of amateurs is published in the list of donations. I now wish to give a few sketches of the oddities and difficulties that are not ticketed. At the outset, I put advertisements in the Inquirer, the Ledger, and the Bulletin, asking for appropriate gifts from friends of the cause. I subjoin a few letters received, omitting the names: Mrs. :—I am a very great lover of my country. I have been wanting to do something for the soldiers, all along, but I could'nt. I don't keep store, and I have no goods to give, and my h...
