Tbe exhibition will open st 11 this morning and close for good at 11 to-nlgbt. Two new attractions were added yesterday afternoon. One was labeled, -Tbe flesh-eating Australian pitcher plant." The moat curious thing about it were two oblong buloa, wltb lids or gills on them, core red wlta some sweet and stick r substance peculiarly attractive to flies. But woe to tne unwary ny tbat was led Into temptation. Tbe moment bis slender legs lighted In tbe sweet syrupne lid closed on him and he wa locked fast In tbe bulb. Tbe otber curiosity was a flower of the palm tree, and was said by tbe man In obargs of It to be the first on that ever blossomed In this part or tbe country. Hair or a large burr, very much like a chestnut burr, only rougher and redder, sheltered tbe flower, which was composed of long silken taasela of a beautiful brown color. This burr was called a crown, and tbe placard said was to "protect tbe flower from the monkiea." It cam from Selbreobt 4 Wad-ley, of New-Rocbeile.
