A VISIT TO THE EDINBURGH EXHIBITION. BY AN OCCASIONAL CORRESPONDENT. What with the Forth Bridge and exhibition, surely Edinburgh is particularly favoured this year above other towns, besides which there are the dozen and one other old places and sights to see which such number of tonriets go for. Chancing to being made to go there, I went and did every- thing, including eight hours of the exhibition. I thought, perhaps, a word on the exhibits would not be out of place iu a country paper a little way off here; but where was the Macsllyn flannel from our neighbourhood? I looked everywhere for the stand, but could fiud none. The exhibition is situated on the south-west outskirts of the town, and is accessible by three railroads, which meet at the exhibition station— by tramway, by electric launches in the Union Canal, or by road. The whole of the grounds are laid out with great skill by a landscape gardener, and every spot has been taken advantage of. For instance, turning to the left of the main entrance there is a Venetian glass factory, close to which is the (Jhemie defer Ulissant or water railway (without wheels and pro- pelled by the expulsion of water). An erection termed a Kiosk, filled with fruits, comes next, with Cadbury's cafe and the Swiss chalet close by. The magnificent panorama of Trafalgar, with the many relics, is interesting and, I suppose, well done, though I noticed some defects. The building is very handsome, and an adornment to the place. The Japanese village is the opposite side, and close to the grounds station, the merry Japs looking very much as I have seen them in their home. The working dairy is good, but not so attractive to some as the maze next door, where having got out. (or rather been shewn out on payment of 6d) one sees a very neat building, viz., Van Houten's Cocoae (next door neighbour to crle). As for the amusements, "Ye Ocean Wave" is a frightful apparatus, and gives a sailor L). T. s and makes a landsman sea-sick. It is an imita- tion cf being at sea in a small boat. The Switch Back" is old but good, and many rides we had, and the greatest fun was where there were two or more female passengers, as they get terribly excited. Besides the many different sorts of railways, musical entertainments, &c., there is a fine shooting jungle, where wild cats, rabbits, rats, anything you like to name, run about by invisible means, and afforded some sport. The band was splendid. The "Belgium Guides," prettily dressed in mauve and gold, played very well, and were much appreciated by the populace, their aged captain (68) acknowledging the com- pliments. Musical performances are given by various choral unions, and many kinds of tournaments, sports, gatherings, racing, and contests of all kinds. I can't say much for the drinking places. For instance, at what was pointed out to us as the first- class bar we asked for a sherry and bitters. The barmaid poured it into a half-pint spirit measure, thence into a thrice clumsy tumbler, and poured bitters on the top. A really good bar was the whiskey bar, where there were every kind of whiskey, and one could choose any brand one liked, and good whiskey some of it was. THE EXHIBITS. Foreign Courts.—Russia, represented by Save] M. Grunwaldt, St. Petersburgh, shows something like a collection of furs-black, silver, white and red fox, beaver, Castor otter, and Minx bear. These are made up beautifully as articles of wear. The lined overcoats are made pretty cheap (about X20), and are very nice. Belgium shows varied exhibits, while France comes out with the Gophir diamonds. Austria has a magnificent show of delicately tinted glass ware, and certainly Moses and Lohne's stand is one of dazzling beauty. Germany exhibits Dresden china and wines; and Holland varies the monotony with margarine, barrels, aud baskets; but for all the foreign courts recommend me Italy, where Lapini, Pandiani, and Andreoui show the most exquisite articles in pure white marble and bronze statuettes. In No. 1 Court is a very great variety of art work in terra cotta, &c., together with mirrors, porcelain figures, groups, ivory, and figures of various carved work. The leading photographers have exhibits, while in the centre are stands of the Ceylon Tea Company and Australian wines (well worth sampling). Leibig's Wine Company have a pretty stand of four bottles, with arches, &c.; while Bouillon Fleet dispenses free diet close by. Good old Irish whiskey, tcrated waters, and the American Tomato Catsup stands complete the round of this court. The models in No, 2 Court are very well done, being those of our first-class steamships, dredger machines, yachts (some of which are working). The St. Andrew Ambulance Association show the latest improvements for first aid to the wounded, with Steadman's latest life buoys and belts for the drowning; and King Theebau's state carriage, the property of Cherry Blossom Perfume, fill up the lower end. India is living with several of her children at No. 3 Court, and shows carpets, textiles, furniture, embroideries, brass works, enamelled goods, sachets, and various kindred manufactures, as well as a vast variety of silver, wood, ivory, and glass goods, including workmen engaged at their different trades. No. 4 Court.—Jewellery, &c., hold sway here, and I see before my covetous eyes jets, Scotch pebbles, fancy jewellery, amber goods, Scottish jewellery in mounted Cairn forms, pearls, amethypts, real diamonds, crests, Highland brooches, and such » collection of clocks, watches, &c., as would stock Wales. No. 5 Court.—A good court this. The best. thing there being Cadbury's Cocoa stand, while Thomson and Sortens look up well with a perfect model of the Forth Bridge in tobacco. Bovril, Van IIouter, Beare, Gosnell, Fry Brand also have most pretty stands; but what can I say about so many, each one being eager you should try their samples ? No. 6 Court consists principally of stands of Perfumes & soaps, besides similar articles of varied descriptions. While the great speciality seemed to be the "crab apple blossom Perfume," it seemed to me "white heather" was the best. Of ccurse, "cherry blossom was showing up well, and amengst other things, they were showing the smallest donkey in the world. Drugs and patent medicines of all sorts complete this court, which boasts of a mixed aroma not unpleasant. Getting into Court No. 7, another firm exhibits furs, but my taste was saturated at the commence- went by the lJussian ones, so pass on to the adja- cent stands, but must need quit quickly as I see before me what I'm told are two stands of ladies' underclothing. Hats and caps are here in force, while a Tartan loom is working, and the large Edinburgh drapery businesses are represented by various things, including robes for an ecclesiastical and academic young mau. Cormict Cannon show excellent homespun, hand-made tweeds and friezes, from old Donegal, at stand No. G98. In Court No. 8 Robinson and Cleaver have taste- fully dressed stands of Irish linens, cambrics, embroideries, and laces, and next door, curiously enough, I came on a splendid sporting waggon, a I real beauty, with every appliance, from the tent arrangements to the stove fittings; 150 guineas was all they asked. Query was it worth it ? Then in succession Mineral Oil Company, Patent Candle. Cork and Rubber Companies had good stands. Then musical instruments came along by all the principal firms. WOMEN'S INDUSTRIES. This pnrt of the exhibition was very interesting, I as most of the different societies, etc., had their j own people working on the spot, besides showing their exhibits. Excellent work in hand painted china, iron, brass, and wood work, violins. bag pipes, flies and screens. Schow and Co.'s Shetland goods were delightful, particularly the fair Shet- land woman knitting, at a pace 1 could not have believed. The embroidery and laces by Irish pea- santry were very good, which close by, in variance, was a potato peeler tool, which could be used for 12 other purposes, and cost GJ. A very good article. I slipped the fine art galleries for want of time. At the North Court, furniture, stationery, book, etc.. tubular bells, and large oiiice desks were the principal items. The office desks were very good. Then came the sample rooms for drawing rooms, bedrooms, porlour, or boudoir. They were most interesting, and it seemed that the Cavendish House Company had the pull, Following along the different suites I came to the stands of the Varish Company and the very fine stand of Messrs. Aspinall. The mission societies had bookstalls of various religious books. A splendid collection of vehicles, particularly dogcarts, are shown by Wind- over and G. Morris. A pretty item in the show was the floral decoration of Mrs Smart They looked very well on the dinner table also for ladies' dress trimmings. Safety pins, patent curtain hooks, fancy nails, and all kinds of kindred articles are sho-vn by Cooke Bros., of Birmingham, while away west bookstalls and collections are the rage. Type-writers of various sorts and patent pens with Hislop's cycles complete with one exception. This Court. The exception is the stall of Mr A. Davies, who exhibits and sells his mechanical toys and tops. They are really very good, and war- ranted to please children. His top is capital on being spun in a soup plate of water; it throws up a fountain four feet high. His bumming top, too, plays tunes as required, simply by altering the spindle. Of course, the way he shows these toys off add materially to an opinion of them, but they are good. So far the name of the exhibition—the Edin- burgh Electrical Exhibition—has belied itself, and I was beginning to wonder whether it was not a misnomer. The Railway Court is good, showing, as it does, the model of the rocket of 1803, the Wylam Dilly Locomotive, 1813, and George Stevenson's locomo- tive, 1825; while in contrast are the magnificent specimens of engines, etc., as used to-day, looking very fine. A good exhibit in this court is the well-known Y\ estinghouse Brake, showing a section, and how it acts. t> THE MACHINERY HAI,L. Last, and by far the best, we come to this fine show of inventions in electricity and general engineering. A great number of companies, which it would be useless to mention, have five stands of electric apparatus but I think Hills and Thomson, the great Liverpool firm, struck me as being as good as any. The latest invention, I believe, in the place was the Solvo Washer for laundry work. It is seen working, and seems an excellent idea for washing clothes. The Post Office exhibits are most interesting, and anyone missing them cannot be said to have seen the Exhibition. All varieties of telegraphic instruments, from the year 1837 down to the pre- sent time, are shewn. There are old directories back to 1773, old stamps, the Mulready envelope, old prints of the dangers of carrvins mails, and illegible addresses that have been deciphered and forwarded. Then, again, there are the patent slips for picking up and dropping mail bags while going express rates, mail bags used for sending to Australia and United States, and finally the village post box, where for three years two tits have made their nests and hatched the young while the box was in active use. Ponderous engines of all sorts meet one on passing along— very interesting, but hard to describe; and the bakery industry turns up at the west-end of this vast hall. It is very well repre- sented by bakeries in active work of the most perfected types and principles based on modern science. Then there is a great variety in stalls. Paraffin lamps (every variety), railway sleepers, exhibits from the leather trade, and from the safe and strong room firms. Messrs. Hobb's neatest thing is an apparatus by which anyone touching the lock sets an electric bell going, which nothing will possibly stop till the owner turns up. They con- sider it is the only one in the market. Hydraulics are well represented, but commend me to Shaubs & Co. if I ever want a luxurious bath, as his 50 guinea bath is the most ingenious apparatus I saw at all, I think. More electric batteries, cells, tramcars, dynamos, launches, and the thousand articles pertaining thereto, and then Singers' exhibit is very nice, added to which they give a chance in the drawing of their best machine exhibited. This closes practically the whole show, although the machinery room contains many more stands than I could mention. It is very good of its kind, and should pay under the able management. But to thoroughly enjoy A show of that kind surely one must be a rich man, and satiate one's appetite for the marvels exhibited by purchasing some one or more of them.

THE FORTH BRIDGE. Seeing that the Forth Bridge has been erected at such an enormous expense in order to save about twenty minutes to mails and passengers journeying north, it will, perhaps, interest some of our readers to look back upon the postal facilities that were in vogue with our ancestors before they became accustomed to the luxury and speed of the coaches, which under the names of Eclipse," "Highllyer," Lightning," "Express," etc., performed their journeys in spaces of times that must have seemed marvellous to those who remembered the long delays and uncertainties of such makeshifts as the common mailcart or the miscalled" poily-ex press. Now, listen to this, we quote from an article "on the original mode of conveying letters," before mail eoaches were introduced tor the purpose of conveying the letters from London to Edinburgh, it was the custom (indeed, it was the universal practice) to send the mails in a cart or on horse- back, certainly a very tedious and desultory mode of intercourse, upon many occasions the'people of Edinburgh were disappointed even in" the finest weather by the lateness of the arrival of the London post, and it was strongly suspected that the delay was attributed to the post boy entrusted to bring the bag of letters from the last stage At Haddington, sixteen miles south of the Caledonian Metropolis, two persons were accordingly sent by the post-ofiice on the road, in order to watch the post-boy. After they had passed the celebrated village of Trauent they discovered upon the Common, at a distance from the high road the post-boys horse, and another quietly grazing, while the post-boy and a companion "rag a muffin were amusing themselves with a game at "penny stones" (what game is that?) enraged at this the men ran forward, seized the pest-boy, and belaboured him very handsomely. 1 He set off instantly on his business. Turning to the other delinquent they were about to take the same liberty with him, when he exclaimed" you have no right to meddle with me I'm not the post—Tin only an express!" Those were good old times
The litigation between the Italian Government and Caribaldi's morganatic family about the island of Caprera has been settled. The Government pays X13,000 for the estate, and the money is to be divided between the children and their mother, while Menotti Garibaldi gets the house, garden, and farm for himself.

REVIEW OF THE BRITISH CORN TRADE. The rainfall since the 29th of June has been serious. Instead of the weather ameliorating, as had been promised in the forecasts, the area of rain and wind steadily increased. The downpours of the 29th and 30th were by no means general, but since July came in the whole of the United Kingdom has passed under cyclonic conditions. Nor has this been all, for the fall in the temperature has been marked, and the heavy rain which began on Friday night, and lasted through Saturday, came from tho north. The 4th and 5th July were seven from the north. The 4th and 5th July were seven degrees below the average of shade temperature, and there was a complete absence of bright sunshine. The bloom on the wheat being rather the sign of a process just completed than of its being actually in operation, the effect of the washing rains may not have been such' as to cause much anxiety. But the prospects ,of a good wheat crop are undoubtedly smaller than they were a week I ago. By how much it would be the merest guess work to say, but speaking of July generally, It has been estimated that every bad day knocks a 100,000 qrs. off the total wheat yield. Certainly a uniformly unfavourable July lUight reduce a crop promise from 10,000,000 qrs. to 7,000,000 qrs. l'here is happily a great recuperative power in the wheat plant, and July days are still long, so that clear sunshine may have potency for something like fourteen hours at a stretch. The need, how- ever, of this restoring and ripening power is now most urgent, and the markets are already showing apprehension. Out of fifty-five leading exchanges for wheat, twenty are dearer against only four last week, twenty-four firm against seventeen, and only eleven in buyers' favour, against thirty-three. Barley shows fourteen markets more or less iu sellers' favour, against one last week oats, fifteen against three maize, eighteen ngaimt three and flour, nine against a blank record. This is no more than might be expected. The holding of all home produce must be expected to become very firm, and farmers are not likely to part with their scanty reserves of old corn at anything like the prices they were willing to take when all the agricultural aspect was in buyers' favour. The London averages, indeed, are low, but the total sales do not amount to enough to afford any adequate lest of value. Last recorded quotations were:—Wheat, 32s. 2d. per qr., and oats 19s. lid. per qr.; but only 257 qrs. were sold of the former, and only 64G qrs. of the latter grain. No sales of English barley were reported, and in the previous week only 45 qrs were sold, so that this crop really appears to have been sold right out. How much old wheat remaius is doubtful, but the view which we took a month ago concerning the tenuity of farmers' holdings seems to receive confirmation from the records of each week as it passes. At Bristol, on Thursday, the real scarcity of English wheat in Gloucester and Somerset was widely referred to, while an equal scarcity was reported of Essex at Chelmsford on Friday, and the Lincoln market telegram ran:—"The 1889 wheat crop is about used up the few samples offering to-day made Id. advance. There are few old beans and peas left either, but oats have held out well, and the yield in 1889 was good." The imperial average for English wheat for the week, ended July 5th, 1890, was 32s. Sd. per qr. on 34,343 J- qrs., agaiust 28s. 4d. per qr. on 29,1061 qrs. last year. The septennial or tithe average for the week is 33s. lOd. per qr. on 32,727 qrs.
