New York, Aug. 0. The special
ttalu belting Ihe remain', auived at
tho (i and Central Depot n few min
utes past o o'clock jcsteidiiy afternoon.
For an houi picvious one of the Midden
sloims which have maiked the summer
in New Yoik pabed over thu city,
dionchiug the long lines of soldiers
gallteicd about tlte, depot and its ad
joining thoioughfaic. Tiro train had

when the clotiiU lifted, tho sun burst
thiough, leaving u inngnllleent rainbow
dlicctly over tho niched enti.inee to tho
Tlio depot had been ele.ucd of till
savoa do.-'ii oi two iepuileii,n lulgade
of policemen, and the itillioul ollicl.ils,
who blood at the lowei end of the
building awaiting tho train's nirlvnl.
Theie weio ten caiu to tlio funeral

mourning, the draping eaught up at
tho windows with black loscttcs, the
fuueialeii "Woodliwn" distinguished
by Its single broad d ot and tho ptiv'i
panels of ei.ipo which lined its sides.
It was not a moment before tho mem

Hiiirihcd, all we.u log dink suits with
crape on Hull aniu and black bauds
about llteii tall white hat-, wcio pour

Governor Hill and his stall", covered
with gold lace, Iholr slovvy uniforms
standing out In marked lolicf against
tho black train, and tho regular aiiny
troops, their blight, polished lillo bar
rels shining In tho welcome sunlight,
tiled out upon Ihe pl'itfoun, while the
guard of bono! win, busy opening tho
doors for thoentetsot the colliu. There
was no oeoiloit foi woidof command
astheilch piuplo casket, wttli Its sil
ver trimmings, wa handed out on tlio
shoulders ot tlio twelve stain ait mjI
diers awaiting lis iieeptlon, lively
head was uncovered, as with solemn
step tiro eollln beaiers matched thiough
tho timing down the long lines ot po
licemen and across tiro long platform to
tho station doors.
If tlio space under tho broad roof of
tho depot had been kept clear of the
people, the streets In tho vicinity had
been tilling for hours with soldiors nnd
c vllhus. Tlio liii'o black catafalque,
with Its twelve black hore-, stood In
Forty-thlid stieet, Just opposite tho
nralu ontiauce. Tho colliu was borne
thiough the long lino of tioons nnd
placed securely in its position, wnuo tuo
gioat mass of people which lined the
sidewalks back of tho well-preserved
pollco lines spontaneously uncovered
their heads and waited for tho proces
sion to stait.
General Hancock and his ntatl" gal
loped forward nt the head of tho Hue,
regiment after regiment of tho National
Giiatd, their aims at tovetoo and their
colora In mourning, fell regulaily Into
line, and, amid the lolllugof inullled
(hums and tho tolling of beilK, tho great
pagennt moved slowly down tho nvc
irue. When nt last,1 by General Han
cock's order, the buglo sounded tho
shrill and sharp command for tho march
to begin, the rumble of tho nrtlllory
wns licaul and the oyo nud oar took In
the roll of the inullled diums, tho musi
cal clatter of tho thousands of horses'
hoofs, the cadence of the feet of tho
marching men, nml tho undulations of
tho chining battalions as far as tho eye
could sec. It w;rt nearly 7 o'clock
when tho head of the procession reached
City Hall Square. Gonornl Hancock
rodo into tiro pla.a nud dismounted.
The mourning drnperyon tho City
Hull hud uot been completed until 5
o'clock. Tho conldor into which tlio
iroir front untos open wns completely
shrouded iu black, which was llutod
across tho celling und drawn over the
walls nnd about tlio pillars to tiro lloor.
Over tho marble pavement rubber mat
ting was laid, nud was coveted with
blael; varnish, nud thus tho conldor
looked like the Interior of a black cube.
In the ccntio thu canopy, which was
to cover the remains, was nlaccd. Four
cm veil posts of mahogany supported an
ntciieil inoi of niack silk, llncu wltii
while. Curtains of black silk, heavily
filugcd, hung fiom tho top, and wcio
ditivvn toward tho posts by heavy silk
cords. Tho platfoim suppoitlng the
canopy, and on which tho casket was
to rest, was oovcied with black. At lis
foot wns n heavily framed brono
medallion of tho dead General. A lino
of pin pie within Its black fiauru was
tho only oilier color to bo detected hr
tho whole conldor. Two lows of mas
sivo Eiiuaie columns, also swathed iu
black, were luck of the conldor, and
between them ono passed to tho space
beneath tho demo and befoio tho circu
lar stairway. Hero, too, all was hlack.
In the centre of nil, upon tlio Ilrst
lauding- ot tho stairway, n black pedestnl
suppoiU'd a brono bust of Grant. A
golden eagle just beneath his bosom was
covered wltji black illusion, nnd a
golden wreath had been placed ncioss
Its outstretched wings. Two; electric
lights depending from the dome cast
their whlto glaio upon the bust.
Directly above, standing iu an operr
corridor which runs mound tliji dome,
wns placed tho beautiful lloral tribute of
tho Women's Relict Corp3 of Now
Y'ork nud Drooklyn. This is n tall
clock composed of white and purplo im
mortelles, smllaxmrd loses. Tlio bunds
on till! dial Indicate the hour nt which
the General died eight minutes past
S. Rcucath the dial aro the dates 1822
18S5. This lloral clock and tho bron.o
bust wero here, too, the only objects
not black. Sable cloth covcicd every
thing, but ceased wheic tho arch of tho
dome began above, and tho whlto mar
bio thus exposed allbt'ded a beautiful
contiast. Rack of tlio stairway wcio
two passages, also covered witli black,
which led to tho roar of tho hall.
Tho twelve black horses drawing the
funeral car were then led in front of
tlio City Hall. Tho undertaker's as
sistants placed a black stairway against
it and the Grand Auny guard of honor
fiom Grant Postof Brooklyn ascended
lo tho car, reverently lifted the sacred
burden and bore it Into tho building.
During their progi ess tho 22d Regiment
presented aims, n band played a dirge
and a buglo rang out from tlio steps
with mournful note.
As soon as tlio casket hud been placed
beneath tho canopy thirteen members
of Giant Post took their stations, six nt
each side and ono at tho head. Thoy
stood like statues, their gae concen
trated oir their eliaigc. .Sharing their
watcli weio ecvou members of the
Loyal Legion, of whom the ranking
olliccr was JJrigadler-Ceneial J. S.
Mallaw. Gcneial Hancock had now de
livered tlio icmalusto the municipal au
thorities, in whoso charge they will bo
until 10 o'clock on Satiuday morning.
At 0 o'clock the waiting crowd wero
foi mod hr a long line, which reached
from tire City II.il! across tlio Equate to
Mall street. Two of the iron entrance
gates weio opened, and iu two lines tlio
pcoplo llled past each sido of the eollln,
thence passing to tiro rear entrance.
Tlio body ittclf secured much ntten
u.Ucd, hut tho embalming had been so
excellently done that many Now
Yorkers who had giown familiar with
tho General'!, faco wero full of gratitude
nt the strong likeness which liad bcerr
pifbcivcd, With one hand lying peace
fully across his breast, a partial separa
tion of the lips ami the gentle ciuvo of
tho eyelids, tho General seemed to bo
literally at lest. No attempt was made
to keep an accurate count of tho num
ber of persons to-night, but it must havo
It was decided that tho colliu should
