,., making appropriations and providing for the
nfrptinnauil entertainment of the delegates to
; National Encampment, other rcprcscnta
!. trade hodies arc manifesting an activo
interest in the coming convention, and the re
wytionruriiscs to he of tho most cordial
character The programmo to ho observed,
further than has been announced in The
National Tkibujce, has not yet been com
pleted, hut Past Grand Commander Ross and
others of tho Executive Committco aro busily
engaged in arranging matters, and tho visitors
to the Monumental City can rely upon a warm
and generous welcome not only by their com
rades who carried tho old flag to the front but
by the people of Baltimore irrespective of poli
tics. This, of course, is as it should be. The
assembling of the Grand Army Encampment
should not be regarded as possessing any polit
ical significance, but rather a reunion of rep
resentative men from nearly every section of
the country, who aro desirous of obliterating
all sectional feeling, and that they will be met
in the same spirit of good fellowship, even by
those who may differ with thorn politically
admits of no doubt. This is already manifested
by the liberal appropriation mado by tho unan
imous vote of tho City Council, every mem
ber of which body is a Democrat, and by the
action of tho trades bodies, more than two
thirds of the members of which also belong to
the same party. Tho Democratic press of tho
city, as The Tribune has already shown,
speaks in the warmest terms of tho coming
convention and pledges for tho people of Balti
more a most hospitable reception to tho dele
gates. The comjnitteo appointed to wait upon bank
ers and merchants have so far seem Messrs.
Enoch Pratt, Eob't Garrett, lTon.W. P. Why to,
(Mayor of Baltimore), C. C. Fulton, and other
prominent citizens, who have consented to servo
as honorary members of tho Finance Commit
tee, Mr. Pratt as chairman. A committee from
Post No. 2, South Boston, will be in Baltimore
on April 2d and 3d to complete arrangements
for their visit. Almost all tho hotels have an
swered tho communication addressed to their
proprietors and have placed tho rates much
below tho regular prices. Tho Western Md. &
P. W. & B. K. E. have been heard from and
promise a reduction of fares one-half for uni
formed Posts and one-third to citizens
other than members of tho Grand Army.
Sub -committees on finance, reception, rail
road transportation, hotels, and local trans
portation have been appointed, of which the
following-Sained members have been selected
as chairmen: Finance, A. G. Alford; Recep
tion, S. M. Sparklin ; Railroads, General Felix
Agnus; Hotels, H. G.Haydcn; Local Trans
portation, Georgo W. Mott. A letter just re
ceived from Union Post, No. 50, Pcabody, Mas
sachusetts, notifies us of their intention to bo
l.nro on Jiir.fi 21 : also one from F. G. Swiggart,
Wilmington, asking what arrangements can bo
made for Posts there. To all such inquiries
n-plics aro promptly mado by tho committee
having such matters in charge.
General JJoss has received a letter from Mr.
.Toh a Wainwright, Commander of tho Depart
ment of Delaware, stating that oight Posts
woul-l be present from that State. Mr. Jloraco
A. Sawver, commander of Post No. 3, of Lynn,
Mass., writes that 200 comrades and a band of
music will come on from that city. It is be
liov.vri that fnllv 10.000 men will attend tho
Encampment. Saturday, June 2lth, will bo
devoted to an excursion to Washington and
Mount Vernon. Gen. Ross sent an invitation
to Brig. -Gen. James R. Herbert for tho Fifth
Maryland Regiment, one of tho finest militia
organizations in the country, and other State
troops, to participate in tho parade. The mili
tia company at Front Royal, Va., has also been
invited to take part.
ACTION OF THE PENN. DEPARTMENT.
The following is an extract from General
Order, No. 3, Department of Pennsylvania :
Hx.VD'its De?t. of Pekka., G. A. E.,
No. 1037 Chesnut st., Philadelphia,
IT. The National Encampment will convene
in Baltimore, Wednesday, June 21, upon which
occasion there will bo a parade of Posts from
the several Departments. The Grand Army of
that city, with the generous and enthusiastic
co-operation of the authorities and citizens
generally, are preparing for a magnificent re
ception of the visiting Posts, and the demon
stration will no doubt be the largest and most
interesting wo have had at any of tho National
Encampments. This Department has been in
vited to participate and will parado as a De
partment. Several Posts have already signified
their intention of attending tho Encampment
and all that propose to do so should report to
these headquarters thfir probable strength and
the time at which they desire to return. Tick
ets from Philadelphia for the. round trip, good
until Saturday, will he but $2.50 if secured
through headquarters. Arrangements will bo
made for a special train to leave Philadelphia
caily Wednesday morning, reaching Baltimore
in ampje time to form for the parade. All
comrades parading should be uniformed.

A vote was taken and tho members unanimously
decided not to comply with the order received
from thochurch authorities. The secret society
therefore remained outside of tho church, and
after the service and mass tho Catholic clergy
did not accompany tho cortege to the cemetery.
Tho Union Veterans, of Washington, will
visit Baltimore April 9th, and join in tho cele
bration of Leo's surrender at Appomattox.
The Grand Army Gazette has tho following
interesting bit of gossip about Postl: "Tho

vicinity, Mount Vernon, and terminating at

Tho movement among tho cx-soldicrs of
Tnnkbannock, Penn., looking to the erection
of a soldier's memorial monument, is gaining
strength, and a call has been issued for a pub
lic meeting of citizens to raise the necessary
funds. The Worker is lending valuable aid to
Generally the Posts of Philadelphia, gays tlio
Tdrgraph, are doing well in the preparations
for the observance of Decoration day. It would
ho better, however, if we had fewer Posts and
stronger organizations, as not a fow Posts hcre
tbouts have not the membership nor the funds
) successfully carry out the prolamine assigned
'lieiu. It is only a question of a few years
when tlu-re will have to be a consolidation of
V stsin Philadelphia, and there are Poafg now
that might take immediate action on tho mat-tor.
There was some excitement at Heading, Pa.,
recently, at the funeral f.Captain A. 0. Greth,
k leading manufacturer .(The cortege proceeded
to St. lV-tor's Cathoiic tihtirth, and included
the Keading Artillerists andlveim Post, No. 70,
G. A. It. The members of the Post were in
formed that they could not be allowed to enter
the.chuich. without first removing their badges.
At the last muster of Post 160, Philadelphia,
there was a very large attendance of members.
The feature of tho evening was tho presentation
to tho Post, by Comrado Barrett, in peculiarly
fitting remarks, of ono of Bailey's equestrian
statues of General Custer. In the course of his
remarks he explained that the plan was origi
nated by Comrade Coatcs, by which a number
of unfortunate comrades, who had not tripped
up in this affair, were called on to chip in to a
fund for tho purpose. The commander, in re
ceiving t"s beautiful gift, commended tho
comrades for their energy, and directed that it
bo placed in a conspicuous place in the room.
Tho Council of Administration stated that a
suitable receptacle would bo provided at onco
for the statue.
The committee on the Bazaar for the benefit
of Post 1G, of Reading, Pa., have been bard at
work and the culmination of their efforts was
witnessed on Monday night. The Bazaar is
being held in Mscnncrchorllall, and in point of
decorations and arrangement of tho several
booths, is one of the finest held this season.
Tho lady attendants aro fascinating. The
sta"c setting reprc-cnts a complete camp scene.
Tho tattered battlc-llag of Durell's Battery
attracts attention. At ono of the committee
meetings Inside Picket presented to S. of G.
Hammer a beautiful silk badgo for his gal
lantry to tho ladies of tho committco.
AN INTERESTING CAMP-FIRE.
From Post and Camp.
The writer had the pleasure for the first
time last Friday evening of paying a fraternal
visit to Camp 5, S. of V., at lf30 South street.
We were somewhat surprised to find a num
ber of ladies, and non-members of tho S. of V.
or G. A. R., occupying scats in the hall, but
a better conducted entertainment wo have
learned that this was to bo an open camp-fire, and
Ecldom witnessed. In a few years lho ranks
of the Grand Army will be growing very thin,
and who are so fitting to take our places, and
fill up tho tacant file as tho sons of those who
fought that tho country might live ! who aro
