A foretaste of the Chicago exhibition
was given this week by Mr. Dredge, at
the Society of Arts, when this gentleman
gave a lecture, to tho accompaniment of
the magic lantern, on the exhibition as it
is and will be. So many romancing tales
of the greatness of the show have been
exported from America that a feeling of
doubt as to where fact left off and fancy
began has been in many minds. Mr
Dredge's lecture and Mr. Dredge's magic
lantern slides, however, put it beyond a
doubt that the show will be almost as
big as it is painted. The buildings them
selves appear to be even more sulwtnn
tial than all accounts have mado them,
and thero is no doubt that the exhibi
tion will really bo "the greatest show on
earth." Loudon Court Journal.

Referring to the failure of the Great
Eastern, which at the time was attrili
uted to her size, in comparison with the
success which now attends boats of
nearly tho same dimensions, how plain
now to naval architects, vessel owners
and in fact everybody possessing even a
limited knowledge of the requirements
as to power in largo steam vessels is the
main cause of failure in the Great East
ern. Her power was entirely out of
proportion to her great length and other
dimensions. The dimensions of Atlantic
liners are now approaching to nearly
the size of the Great Eastern. The
length of the Great Eastern was 880 feet
and her horsepower 7,0.10. The new
Cunard liner Campania is 620 foot long,
but her horsepower will be 150,000. and
it is said that the boat which the White
Star line prcqwses to build at Belfast,
Ireland, will be 700 feet long. It is the
difference of jtowor to which attention is
called, however. Marine Review.

Mr. Hill's influence in tho senr.te is
very much greater than is generally be
lieved, though it may uot bo strong
enough for a contention with the admin
istration. In a measure Hill has taken
tho place of Gorman in tho senate. All
tho friends that Gorman lost in Chicago
Hill gained, and this gives hiin sufficient
powir in the senate to make himself
quite disagrceulile to tho administration
if he desires to do so. Tlio assumption,
however, that bo is going to put on a
coat of war paint and carry a bowie
knife in each boot and a brace of six
shooters in view does not give suflicieut
credit to his discretion and skill ns u
Notwithstanding the bitterness of feel
ing which is provoked by tho New York
senatorial light, it may bo depended upon
that Mr. Hill will not appear in the sen
ate in tho attitude of an opeu opponent
of the administration. There is good
reason foi believing that Mr. Hill will
not only decline to jiose as the loader of
an opposition, but iu spite of all the af
fronts lie feels have been put upon him
he will support the administration in
most matters. Where trouble is looked
for by those who are skimming over th?
surface is with relation to the comfirma
tioua. There is a notion of some people
that Hill will make a fight at every op
portunity. Thoy are probably mistaken.
Men who are pretty familiar with the
situation and know Hill very well be
lieve that he will follow no such line of
policy, but will approve everything and
