There was an unexpectedly large attendance of the survivors of the regiments comprising tiie brigade.\ £Many of them had brought •with them their/wives and children. The veterans were drawn up in the posi­ tions occupiedhy their respective regiments in the second day of the great battle, while in the woods krthe rear of the battle ground were massed the visitors, interested auditore and spectators of a decidedly interesting pro- \ gramme. Mingling with the veterans of the Union, forces were many survivors of John ­ son ’s^ Early ’ s and Ropes ’ corps of the Gon- ! federate arjny. The Union soldiers extended I to those who wore' the gray in the four years ’ conflict fratemal and cordial greetings. The veterans having been arranged about ihe grand stand, the signal for the commence- mehfc of the exercises was given. The builders of the several mon- whom were Gena Longstreut, Sickles,:: Bar- low,vHunt, Gordon and Sharpe 1 Govei-nOr Curtin, apd ox-Senator Warner Miller. ; : Ex- Lieutenant Governor \Rolii|i8on of i^New York, presided, jaifter a prayer he apolo ­ gized for ’ tie -afesence of-'- ’ the poetj Mr. Lathrop, who was detained by illness. Gten. Horatio ^Eing, secretery pf the Army of the Potomac society, read a portion of the poem in an effective manner. . ■ Gen. Robinson then introduced George William Curtis in a short speech, which his wife credits, him as having written,onthe train, but which was well received. Gen. Robinson was the presiding officer of the day. After paying a graceful tribute to the memory of Abraham Lincoln, and alluding, to his famous speech at Gettysburg, in which he said in referring to the southern soldiers: “ They, like we their opponents, are Ameri-» ^ pan citizens, with - essentially the same char ­ acteristics and powers; exceptional advan ­ tages on one side are counterbalanced by ex ­ ceptional advantages on the other; we must make up our minds that man for man the soldier : from the south will be a match for the soldier from the north, and vice versa, ” Mr. Curtis continued: , But the occasion has yet another profound interest of association. It was on the 21st and 25th of June, 178S, that the vote of New Hamp ­ shire and Virginia decided the adoption of the constitution of the United States. This year, almost this very day, is its centenary, and no ­ where in the country could the glorious anniver ­ sary be celebrated with such perfect propriety as upon the field where, by the majestic decision offerees from which there is no appeal, the con ­ stitution was decreed to he an imperishable bond of national union and liberty. The sun of Gettysburg rose on the 1st of July, and saw the army of I GUIS. SICKLES. u m e n ts presented them to their re ­ spective regiments, and immediately on the conclusion of this ceremony the flags with which they were draped were drawn. The chair ­ man of the regi ­ mental committee, in a brief and ap ­ propriate address, accepted the mon- uments in behalf of the survivors. The Rev. Arvine C. Bowdish deliv­ ered an invocation, and Juan Lewis lead an original poem, “ Gettysburg. ” The whole assemblage then united in singing I “ My Country, ’ Tis of Thee, ” after which Maj. ‘ Gen. Henry W. Slocum, of Brooklyn, deliv- S'ered the principal address of the occasion. [He gave a concise history of the battle, [briefly reviewed the operations of the Twelfth [corps, and closed with a, glowing tribute to : tiieir valor. He was enthusiastically ap- jplauded. • Chaplain Buckley, of the Seventieth New (York, offered a prayer, and then Gen. Daniel jE. Sickles, the ora GEN, SLOCUM. I ; : r ’ (tor of the day, was intToducei He eaidthe assemblage marked an epoch in that the surviv ­ ors of two great armies, who, twen- ' ty-five years ago, | fought the decisive i battle of a long and j terrible civil war, jcame ‘ together on the old field to ! unite in pledges of [love and devotion I to one flag and country. There were to-day • no vanquished and no victors, for as Ameri- : cans all might claim a common share in the glories of the battlefield. The war was a revblution ranking m importance with the French revolution of the Eighteenth and English revolution of the Seventeenth ceri- turiies^ ite influence being universal on the idestmies of the country. Its memories were las indescribable as civilization. The names ! of Lincoln and Lee, Grant and Jackson, : could never be effaced from our annals. The official reports of the various regiments on the field July 1, 2, 3 and 4, 1863, were then read by the chairman of the regimental committees. The formal transfer of the •monuments to the--Gettysburg Battlefield Memorial association then took place. The exercises were freely interspersed with the ringing of war songs, in which all took part. Maj. Gen. George S. Greene delivered an oration oh “ Culp ’ s Hill ” in which he summar ­ ized the glorious achievements of the men en­ gaged, in that desperate conflict. He was i followed by Maj. Gen. Henry A. Baraum, who spoke on the splendid results accom ­ plished by the Third brigade in the great fight. Chaplain Mitchell, formerly of the Seventy- first, also ! delivered a brief oration,, after which a hymn, composed by Chaplain Buck- ley, was sung. The great crowd dispersed ; over the battlefield immediately after the [benediction, which closed the exercises. G ettysburg , Pa., July 4 — About fifty ex- Confederates of Parker ’ s battery called on -their old general, Longstreet, yesterday, who received them handsomely in an in ­ formal way. The ’ members of the organiza ­ tion spent some hours in the Peach Orchard, their-command having been the last of Lee ’ s command to leave that ground to join the retreat. The Ninth York, volunteer infantry, who are.encamped alongside of the regulars near the Springs hotel, have won universal praise for their gentlemanly con­ duct and soldierly bearing. They have occupied a prominent part in the daily parades, marching through ; sun and dust from I the scene of the 'first battle to the ’ cemetery, a dis ­ tance of two and a half miles, and re ­ turn each day. The . band - accom- , panymg the Ninth, ! GEN ‘ R0Bms0N - composed of fifty-nine pieces of brass and a drum-corps of forty, has furnished the most enjoyable features of the encampment. Their selectiGn of f ‘ Dixie ” and “ Gariy Me Back to Old Virginia ” were vigorously applauded. The Ninth, in cainp and on the ’ march, albng- side of the well drilled and disciplined regu ­ lar infantry, artillery and cavalry, wais the ^ .^object of universal and favorable - com ­ parison by the thousands of soldiers nnri offi- cers-who witnessed the parade. The- artillery salute from Cemetery Hill, just as the shining bayonets of the long line S 7 of military formed in line in the front of the |1§7 77 stand on Cemetery Hill, caused the blood of many . old soldiers to .flow faster, and in- stlnctively some of them felt impelled to sing ent the old battle cries: “ First gun! Fall in, men, fall in! ” or, “ We ’ ve got them on the rnti, give it to them! ” the gray already ad ­ vancing in line of. battle; the army of the blue still hasten ­ ing eagerly forward and converging to this point. The glory of midsummer filled this landscape, as If nature bad ar ­ rayed a fitting scene for a transcendent event. Once more the unquailing lines so long arrayed against each other stood face to face. Once more the inex -1 pressible emotion ‘ mingled of yearning J memory, of fond affection, of dreaded* foreboding, of high, ihope, of patriotic^ enthusiasm, and of i stem resolve, swept for a moment over thousands of brave hearts, and the next instant the o v e r-rouitTH newyork batterx ’ s whelming storm of monument . the greatest of modern battles hurst. For three long, proud, immortal days it raged and swayed, drifting from Seminary Hill far round to Wolf ’ s Hill and Culp ’ s Hill, then sweep ­ ing hack, with desperate fury striking the Peach Orchard, and dashing with flash and roar upon Little Bound Top and Round Top, raging in Devil ’ s Den, the earth trembling, the air quiver ­ ing. the sky obscured; with shouting charge and rattling ’ volley and thundering cannonade piling the ground with mangled, bleeding blue and gray, •the old, the young, but always and everywhere the devoted and the brave. Doubtful the battle hnng and paused. Then a On the rostrum were a number of dis- formidable bolt of war was 'forged on yon wooded height, and launched with withering blasts f.ni roar of fire against the foe. It was a living holt, and sped as if resistless. It reached and touched the flaming line of the embattled blue. It pierced the line. For one brief mo ­ ment in the sharp agony of mortal strife it held its own. It was the supreme moment of the. peril of the Union. It was the heroic crisis of the war. But the fiery force was spent. In one last, wild, tu ­ multuous struggle brave men dashed headlong against men as brave, and the next moment that awful bolt of- daring courage was melted in the fervent 82D OHIO INFANTRY. heat of an equal valor, and the battle of Gettys ­ burg was fought. If the rising sun of the Fourth of July, 1863, looked upon a sad and unwonted scene, a desola ­ ted battlefield upon which the combatants upon either side had been American citizens, yet those combatants, could they have seen aright, would have hailed that day as ’ more glorious than ever before. For as the children of Israel beheld Moses descending amid the clouds and thunder of the sacred mount, bearing the divinely illu ­ minated law, so from that smoking and blood drenched field, on which all hope of future union might seem to have perished utterly, they would have seen a more perfect ’ .Union rising, with the constitution at last immutably interpreted, and they would have heard, before they were uttered by human lips, the words of which Gettysburg is the immortal pledge to mankind — “ govern ­ ment of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. ” The assemblage was very attentive and ap ­ plauded the orator frequently. Quite a number of Confederates are in the city. As a rule they have come as individ ­ uals from different sections. Among the or ­ ganizations present are the Norfolk and Portsmouth camps. Wherever a gray uni ­ form is seen, it is found to be surrounded by a crowd of old veterans in blue, anxious to shake hands and express their kindly feeling toward their old antagonists, The fact im ­ presses the old soldier observers with the recollection of former scenes of twenty-five years ago, when the gray were their prisoner guests in this city.

The Japanese wax tree, illustrated in thq ac ­ companying cut, is found in Japan, China and throughout the East Indies generally. It be ­ longs to the rhus or sumach family, and has the specific name Snccedanea. In the Japan language it is called haze. THE JM l PANXSE WAX TREE. The tree begins to bear fruit . when five or «ix years old and increases its product every year, Tintil at fifty years a single tree will produce 350 pounds of berries, from which ’ about seventy pounds of wax can be ob ­ tained. This wax, says Nature, is formed in the middle of the berry, between the sted and the skin, like the pulp of a grape. It is extracted by boiling the berries in water, and allowing it to cool, when the wax separ ­ ates out in a solid cake. This vegetable wax closely resembles the product of the honey bee. It is readily bleached, is not greasy to the touch, has the high specific gravity of 0.97 and melts at 131 degs. F. — a ’ little,lower than beeswax, which melts at 149 degs. It is largely used by the Chinese in the manufacture of candles, which are composed either entirely of wax, or mixed with tallow or other fats. The principal port of export is the city of Osaka, from whence, in 1876, nearly two million pounds of the wax, worth about fifteen cents a pound, were shipped to London. A tree of this same family, the Rhus veni- 1 cifera (Japanese ourouchi), also grows in i Japan, and produces the resin or gum. used jin the manufacture of the famous lacquer ; ware. In this country the use of sumach in j tanning is well known ; and notwithstanding [those “ black sheep, ” the poison ivy and dog ­ wood, the Rhus family must be considered as very useful and valuable members of the vegetable kingdom. In the cut are repre ­ sented the flower, leaf and fruit of the Rhus snccedanea, or Japan wax tree. Artificial Rubies. ! Mineralogists and connoisseurs have of (late been considerably interested oyer the j excellent imitations of rabies wrought by •modern science. Numerous analyses, says Jewelers ’ Circular, show that these artificial rabies did not retain a trace of baryte, and that they were formed by pure aluminium : colored by traces of. chrome. The crystab ■ are regular and of adamantine luster. They .are of perfect transparency, as hard as nat- i ural rabies and cut topaz. . Like the natural rabies, they turn black on bring heated, hut resume thefr color after getting cold again. Having thus produced by tynthesis rhombo- bedraTcrystals of rabies with all the ’ physical and chemical properties of the most beautiful [natural rabies, and forming them in a ma ­ trix which may be cbmpared to that inclos ­ ing the natural mineral, Fremy uhd Ver- xraeil believe they have definitely settled the question of the origin of rabies. So far, the experiments have been made with 50 grams of material only, and the crystals have [therefore been comparatively smalli not ex- [ceeding 0.02 of an inch in diameter. The j authors, however, propose to- continue their I experiments on a larger scale, and expect to ! be able to make rabies of large dimensions. A Pneumatic Amusement, Numbered with other pneumatic amuse ­ ments is the trick of putting a lighted candle under water. This is not only an amusing entertainment for the parlor, but an in ­ structive one to the younger members of a .family. / j Procure a good sized cork, or bung; upon [this place a small lighted taper; then set it j afloat in a pail of water. Now, with a steady [hand, invert a large drinking glass over the ■ light, and push it carefully down into the water. The glass being full of air prevents the water entering it. You inay thus see the candle bum under water, and bring it up again to the surface, still alight. This ex- periment, simple as it is, serves to elucidate (that useful contrivance called the diving ! bell, being performed on the same principle. A LIGHTED CANDLE UNDER WATER, i The largest drinking glass holds but half a ! pint, so. that your diving light soon goes out [for the want of air. As an average, a burn- ong caudle consumes as much air as a man,' [ afid ho requires nearly a gallon of aireveyy {minute,; so tlmt,-accordiflg to the size : of the glass over the .flame, yon can calculate how 1 many [ seconds y it wiil-/ remain alight ; of course, a large flame requires' more air than small one. . ; For this and several other ex- _ aifnents, a quart bell glass is very useful,' [bnt, : : being expensive; it is not Sound in eveaty parlor laboratory ; - one is, ’ . ‘ however, : easily ; [made from a green glass pickle bottle; get .a- ; ; glazier [to exit off the bottom, and you have ’ a tell glass that Chilton would not reject. - Foot trimmimrs on. skirts are being revived, PHYSIOLOGY How to AND HYGIENE. Freserve a Fretty Complexion ThiSouglij the Perils .of Summer Weather. ;■ The season of summer outings and travel is Very 1 trying for the complexion, and matters connected with preserving and beautifying it are therefore of interest. \ First may be rioted the attractive little toilet bags -that are a novelty of this season. They > ire fiiled.with bran, grated olive soap 7 and almonds; and being dipped in water for a-moment, and then rubbed upon tbe skin, give a delightful lather which is wiped off with a sof t . toweL They are a most pleasant and useful toilet article. pf course, if the skin is to be kept while and soft, gloves must always be worn out of ' doors and the face shaded as much as possible from the sun. In addition to these precau ­ tions maybe used almond [paste, which is considered one of the finest compounds for [ beautifying the hands. Real almond paste is the kind meant and it is made from sweet and bitter almonds pounded in a mortar, and not of lard or other fatty substances mixed with almond oil. Take of sweet and bitter almonds each two ounces, pound to'a paste, and work up with half an ounce of Windsor soap cut in ‘ fine shreds. To this add [two drams c£ spermaceti and half an ounce of oil of almonds; oil of bergamot, twelve drops. Subject to gentle heat, stir well, and cool in china pote. To improve hands that are naturally coarse and red, or to preserve an already beautiful texture and color from the effects of much out of door exposure, the following treat ­ ment is a popular one: Keep a pot of fine oatmeal and a puff on your washing stand, dry the hands with a bath towel, rub briskly, and dust with oatmeaL At night use rather warm water, apply a flesh or ordinary nail brush all over the hands, and, when quite dry, apply almond paste, and sleep in easy fitting gloves. In spite of all precautions, sunoum, freckles and rough skin are a too frequent ac ­ companiment of the summer ’ s sojourn in country or by the sea, and it may therefore be mentioned that the juice pressed from cu ­ cumbers is gaining favorable repute as a remedy for these troubles. The juice of milkweed is said to be the basis of a popular foreign cosmetic for preventing them. Whatever lotions, creams or other cosmetics may be used, there is one invariable rale which the woman who values her skin will not neglect, and that is to wash face, neck and hands perfectly clean with warm water and pure soap and dry them thoroughly with a soft towel before going to bed. This re ­ moves the imperceptible dust and grime that clogs the pores and causes wrinkles, black- beads, etc. Then, when the face is clean and the pores open* whatever preparation is found to suit best is applied. A light application of vaseline or any good cold cream to the face before going out on summer excursions, rides or walks is an ex ­ cellent preventive of the ill effects of hot ’ sun and wind; and, unless something else is pre ­ ferred, vaseline should always be rubbed on the face at night. . It retards the coining of wrinkles and is, indeed, the safest and cheap ­ est of cosmetics in general use. - India Rubber Sheeting. In case of broken limbs, bums or any wounds for which damp dressings must be used upon a patient in bed, a piece of India rubber sheeting is indispensable for keeping the mattress dry. A yard of the soft twilled rubber cut into two is of convenient size. One-half should be folded in a piece of an old sheet and laid under the affected part. If a sheet folded lengthwise is placed across the middle of the bed and the ends tucked well under the mattress, it will keep smooth and can be changed with less difficulty than a whole sheet. Oil of Peppermint in Consumption. Oil of peppermint is the latest “ sure cure ” for consumption, according to an English physician. Ten drops of toe oil are put on cotton wool in an inhaler, the charge being renewed every three hoars, and the treat ­ ment continued for six Weeks. It is claimed that it worfiS well in all cases and effects a [cure in the earlier stages of the disease. ’ -The [remedy is worth testing on this side ofrthe [ocean. A New Safe Core for Corns. Another safe and' sure 'cure for corns is re- iported to have been found in a poultice [formed of stale bread soaked in strong vine ­ gar. It should be applied at night on re ­ tiring. In the morning the soreness will be gone, and the corn can be picked out. Ob ­ stinate corns may require two or more appli ­ cations. Relief from Mcsquito .and Gnat Bites. - Dr. Gerard states that the inconveniences resulting from bites by mjisquitoes and-gnats, especially when recent, may be relieved b^ rubbing the bitten spot with chloroform. The swelling quickly decreases, and the pain and itching disappear. SOCIAL ETIQUETTE. A Pleasant Way to Pay Honor to a Guest or to Introduco a Stranger. Luncheons are in high, favor with those who entertain extensively and furnish a most agreeable method of being hospitable, as well as a pleasant way to pay honor to a guest or to introduce a stranger. According [to the social etiquette of New York, the luncheon hour is from half past 1 to 2 o ’ clock, and ladies only receive invitations. A large luncheon of thirty or more guests is arranged fpr both drawing and dining room, where small tables for four persons each are care ­ fully grouped. # Guests present themselves in handsome vis ­ iting toilets and are in their bonnets. They remove their gloves at table. For the fa ­ vorite progressive luncheon several diagrams of the tables and' their places, with the names of the guests upon them, are placed in the dressing room, so that each guest may easily find her own location. Guests are received by the hostess and presented to her friend or friends in a library or other reception, ropm, where they wait for the announcement - Of luncheon. The guest of honor, if there he one, is seated at a table near the center, and ; between the courses two of tho ladies wfib i are'seated at the.table witKher and the host ­ ess rise and exchange seats with others whose names the hostess mentions to them.
