[untitled]

     No thoughtful citizen can fail to be impressed by the fact that the recent great tragedy at Buffalo has had a most unfortunate effect upon the fortunes of the great exposition there. It has been necessary to postpone almost all state days and other special occasions set for the month of September, and the loss on this account must have been very great. We think it will be recognized on every hand that the citizens of Buffalo have displayed great energy and enthusiasm in undertaking and carrying out this great work, and that their temper and conduct during the sad period when the late President lay stricken and helpless within their gates was in every respect of a character to earn commendation. It is, we think, the general sentiment that every available influence should now be enlisted to make the remaining weeks of the exposition a success, and we have no doubt that some practical results of this sentiment will be felt in an increased attendance in Buffalo during the comparatively short time that yet remains before the exposition will be brought to a close.
