Tlie Day Parade and Eveniog
Special Correspondence National Tribune.
Pjm.AJJKi.riiiA, Pa., Nov. 1.
Tlirec brigades of Pennsylvania, militia, with
cavalry and artillery, ono brigade of New Jersey
militia with two Gatling gun batteries, and a
Grand Army division, in all nearly fifteen thou
sand men, marched through Philadelphia last
Friday morning, bearing bright standards and
tattered baltle-llags, surrounded by the lavish
tribute of decoration and accompanied by such
music as thrills tho heart and quickens tho
pulse. Tho column fell into line on South
Broad street, and moved at 11 a. m., marching
down Chestnut to Third, up Market and out
Broad street to Columbia avenue. The entire
length of the route was lined with crowds of
spectators, who applauded the regular marching
and perfect alignment of the State's defenders.
General Beaver, Republican, candidate for gov
ernor, rode at the head of the Second brigade,
and was everywhere greeted with enthusiastic
cheers. The tramp of men, the glint of arms,
the rumble of gun-carriages, the clatter of cav
alry, and tho strains of music made the scene
one of imposing beauty.
The hour for the parado to start was set at 11
o'clock, and at precisely that hour Major-Gcn-enil
John F. Hartranft and his staff took their
position at Broad and Fitzwater streets, ten
mounted police doing escort duty at tho head
of ihe column. General Hartranft was greeted
with applause all along the line, the multitudes
huzzaing, waiving handkerchiefs, and otherwise
giving expression to their pleasurable recogni
tion of the ex-governor of Pennsylvania.
THE G It AND AKMY.
On no previous occasion in its history did tho
Grand. Army of the Republic present a finer
appearance. Every man appeared in line uni
formed in blue, with fatigue cap and white
gloves, and wearing tho emblematic badge of
the organization on his left breast by the side
of a small bouquet. Recollections of the late
war were vividly recalled by tho sight of the
tattered flags that were held aloft by the march
ing veterans, and by the appearauce in carriages
of scores of brave men whom the horrors of war
had deprived of a limb. In one carriage were
four crippled soldiers with only three legs in tho
party. In round numbers tho Grand Army
division aggregated eighty Posts, comprising
G.000 men. Each Post was divided into pla
toons of sixteen men, and each platoon was
under the command of an experienced com
rade. It was fully noontime before the shrill
voice bugle warned the men to prepare for
the marcli. Then every side thoroughfare
began pouring its regular lines of uniformed
men into Broad street. Many of tho Posts
were escorted by military companies carry
ing muskets. In every case, however, the
detachment was formed of members of the va-,
rious Posts they escorted. Several of tho
organizations wero preceded by drum corps
comprising the sons of the veterans in lino be
hind. A marked feature of tho display was
tho fine appearance of Tibbitts Veteran Corps,
of Troy, K. Y., commanded by Colonel Joseph
Egolf, who were the guests of Post 2, of this
city. They were uniformed somewhat after
the picturesque style of tho Austrian military
and wore huge white- shakos, which gave them
a truly martial aspect. Marching in true sol
dierly style, the veterans were frequently ap
plauded. Another noticeable feature was the
first appearance on parade of tho new Post
named after the late General Robert Patterson.
The men wore fresh unijjrms, and their new
stand of silk colors were the brightest in the
line. General E. D. Bakor Post, No. 8, had in
line a small Parrott gun mounted on wheels
and drawn by eight men. The gun was made
of cannon captured at tho battle of Gettysburg.
The rear of the line was brought up by soveral
camj of Sons of Veterans, among them one
bearing the name of the late lamented James
With their torn battle-flags, that were cheered
wherever they appeared in line along the
route, and occasionally drawiug small brass
howitzers, intended more for ornament and
salute service than for bloody work, G,729 men
of the Grand Army of the Republic made a
soldierly and impressive appearance- as they
marched with military tread and a general bear
ing that bespoke previous active service in
the ranks. The divisions in which the home
a..d - isiting Posts were grouped had mounted
c )ramandors and aids in front like those of the
citizen soldiery. The Department Commander,
J. M. Vanderslice, rode at the head of tho
Grand Army divisions and was aided by a
corps of ollicers, consisting of As-sistant Adju
tant General Thomas J. Stewart, Senior Yiec
Oommander William N. Jones, Junior Vice
Commander J. M. Gibbs, Assistant Quartcr-ira-U-r
General IL G. Williams, Inspector
Tho: ias Monroe, Judge-Advocate B. C. Chris
ty, Mustering Officer A. M. Moreland, Medi
cal Dirertor William D. Hall, and Chaplain
Rev. J. W. Sayres. Many of the visiting Posts
were sandwiched between Plriladelpliia Posts
acting as escorts.
THE CITY GRAND AltMY I'OSTS.
The Philadelphia Posts led the Grand Army
line, Post No. 35, mounted, coming first. They
v. re followed by Po3t No. 1. Tho guard of
Po t No. 2, forty strong, wearing big blai'k
shakos created a decided impression. Tiie men
man-lied well and many bursts of applause
greeted them along the route. Right behind
these came their visitors, Tibbetts Veteran
C orps, of Troy, who were dressed in handsome
uniforms, with white shakos, and numbered
fixty men, under tho command of Colonel
Jot- ph Egolf. Posts Km. 1, 2 and 10 carried a
iiumber of old and tattered flags and ensigns,
b: ides some new and very handsome ones.
Post No. 10 numbered 230 men and made a
large display of flags and colors. The handsome
banner of Post No. -10 attracted consid
erable attention. Post No. 91 carried off
the honors in respect to numbers, having
310 men in line. Post No. 51 created a sensa
ticu among tho little folks with a small gun,
drawn by four little dappled ponies. No. 5(5
had one drawn by two ponies, and Post S one
drawn by six men. The guard ol Post 9-1 made
a very good impression. In going down Chest
nut street they turned tho capes of their over
coats back, and the red lining gave thorn a
nvul appearance. Following are the Phila
delphia Posts that were represented in the line:

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 31, 1S82.
The display made by about five thousand
Knights Templar on Thursday, tho 2Gth, was a
most superb spectacle. There wero forty-fivo
Commandories represented in line. All tho
Commanderies, in their haudsomo uniforms,
presented a dignified appearance, and tho in
tricate and difficult evolutions composed in tho
Templar drill met with hearty appreciation on
the jiart of tho spectators. Tho Templar's fde
terminated in tho evening with a brilliant
reception and a magnificent art sceno in tho
Academy of Music.
Friday, the 27th, was Grand Army Day. Jn
the foro part of the day the weather was most
delightful, but in the afternoon it began to get
cloudy and a few drops of rain fell, and for
a while it looked as though the soldiers would
receive a wetting, but fortunately it held off,
and tho graud parade passed over the entire
ronto and everything passed ofl'vcry smoothly.
Tho parado of the military, under tho com
mand of General Hartranft, was a grand affair.
Tho men looked well aud marched well. The
greatest feature of tho parade, however, was
the Grand Army of the Republic, aud it proved
to bo tho strongest organization that appeared
in any of the bi-centcmiial parades, about
12,000 veterans being in line, composing nearly
100 Posts. Their appearance was very credit
able, and their marehiug was such as becomes
veterans. Along tho route they wero fre
quently applauded and cheered. Thcro wero
old, grey -haired men in line, who had enlisted
at the first call for volunteers in 1801, and
fought for tho Union all through tho war.
Many of them had suffered tho hardshtys of
rebel prisons, and all knew tho dangers and
liardshipsof the life of a soldier. Tho turnout
on Friday would have been little without
Wilson Post, G. A- R., of Baltimore, made a
Greble Post, No. 10, of Philadetyhia, made
one of the finest displays of the entire line.
Post No. 2, of Philadelphia, kept up its old
reputation for fine appearance aud full ranks.
Tho " Post 2 Guard " looked and marched re
Cavalry Post, No. .35, of this city, led off the
Grand Army Division, and is the only cavalry
Post in the United States.
General Reynolds Post was presented with a
stand of colors in front of the State House by
General H. H. Bingham.
Gus. W. Town Post. No. 4G, had a handsome
uniformed guard, and carried eight handsome
silk flags and two old and tattered battle-flags.
This Post made a good appearance.
After the parado a Camp-fire was kept burn
ing until a late hour at tho Industrial Hall,
beautiful features of which were several large
tents, representing army life, erected on a
stage. Back of the cam) 6at Commander-in-Chief
Paul Vandervoort, Past Commander-in-Chief
General John F. Hartranft, Department
Commanders John M. Vanderslice, of Pennsyl
vania, John Wainwright, of Delaware, and a
number of other Grand Army officers of this
and other Departments. Tho entertainment
opened with a musical selection by tho band,
and Comrade Gcorgo W. North recited " The
Sword of Bunker Hill." General Snowden fol
lowed with a few remarks. S. Bonnafon read
a parody on " Barbara Freitchio," which was
very amusing. The hall rang with applause
when littlo Sammy Wolf, a four-year-old son of
Comrade Geo. Wolf, beat time on a large drum to
the music of a fife. Commander-in-Chief Van
dervoort made an earnest and eloquent address,
and other songs and speeches followed. Forty
fivo hundred comrades wero fed at tho hall

bread aud threo thousand pounds of meat, in
addition to other eatable., were consumed. On

A RIGHTEOUS DECISION.
Act ing Secretary .Toslyn Overrules tho Technicali
ties of Pension Practice.
The following is tho substance of the decision
rendered last week by Acting Secretary Joslyn,
of the Interior Department, in the case of tho
widow aud children of Beverly Dangerficld,
whoso claim for pension was originally rejected
on tho ground that proof was lacking of tho
fact of Dangerfield's death from wounds received
in the line of duty :
Department or the Inter ion,
Washington, D. C, October 21, 1882.
Tho Commissioner of Pensions.
The claims have been rejected by your office
"on tho ground that tho records fail to show,
and tho applicant is unable to prove, the fact,
date, or cause of tho soldier's death." Tho roll
of tho company to which tho soldier belonged
shows that ho was wounded in action on the
27th of October, 18(51, and sent to hospital, and
was not again with the company, which con
tinued in the service until tho 29th of Septem
'J lie official records in tho office of tho Surgeon
General show that lie was admitted to hospital
at Point of Rocks, Virginia, October 29, lfcGl,
with gunshot wound of tho shoulder, and also
wound of tho right leg, and was transferred
where not stated November 9, 180 1.
Thcro is no further account of him upon tho
official records." The evidence presented to
prove his death is as follows:
John 11. Tunia testifies that Dangcrfield was
carried ofi the fie'd at Fair Oaks, Va., on tho
27th of October, 18(51, by a squad of men under
his charge as sergeant, dangerously wounded in
tho shoulder and arm, and that on or about tho
5th of May, 18G5, his death was announced to
the regiment by tho adjutant as having occurred
at the Point of Rocks hospital. Ho states cir
cumstances which lead him to fix tho date of
death as about May 1, 1803.
Daniel Turner testifies that ho was at tho
hospital at Point of Rocks for some timo about
the 1st of May, lh(i3; that ho knew Beverly
Dangcrfield, who was in the hospital suffering
from a wound; that about tho 1st of May, 1605,
ho was informed that Dangcrfield had died, aud
that he saw a body carried to tho dead-house
which he was informed was tho body of Dan
gcrfield. Harry M. Turner, who was chaplain of the
First regiment U. S. C. T., testifies that he well
remembers that Beverly Dangerficld was se
riously wounded at the battle of Fair Oaks.Va.,
about the 27th or 2Sth of October, 1801 ; that ho
was sent to hospital at Point of Rocks, and that
about the last of April or tho 1st of May, 1805,
a report of his deatli came to tho regiment.
Charles W. Goodrich, who was a corporal,
company K, First U. S. C. T., testifies that ho
saw Dangerficld after ho was wounded; that
the wound was severe, and that a report came
t tho regiment that he died about tho last of
The testimony of Henry Thomas, who was a
private, company K, First U. S. C. T., is to tho
samo effect as that of Charles W. Goodrich.
There aro some discrepancies in the evidence,
but in view of all the circumstances of the ciu-e
it is thought by this Department that it should
bo accepted as showing that the soldier died
about the first of May, lb(55, from causes con
nected with his military service.
You will please adjudicate the claim of his
widow and children on this view.
Referring to the case cited in your report, in
which it was held 1)3 the Secretary of tho Inte
rior that tho death of a soldier cannot bo pre
sumed, but must bo proved, to entitle his widow
to pension, 1 have to state that cases anVo in
which it is impossible to obtain positive proof
of the soldier's deatli, but the presumption of
his death from causes connected with his service
is so strong as to justify tho allowance of a
claim for pension, made on behalf of his widow,
children, or dependent relatives. When a sol
dier is reported " missing in action," under cir
cumstances which lead to tho belief that ho
was killed in the battle, a claim for pension
on his account may properly be allowed. When
a soldier was captured by tho enemy, and all
the circumstances of tiio case lead to the belief
that he died from disease contracted while in
captivity, it Avould bo proper, in the execution
of tho pension law, to act upon the pre "mplion
of his death. Other wises occur in wnich the
presumption of a soldier's death from causes
connected with his service is so strong as to
justify the allowance of a claim for pension on
The presumption of the common law is, that
a person who has been absent and not heard
from for seven years is dead. This presumption
may properly bo ac i-pted under tho pension
law. And if, when last heard from, a soldier
was suffering from serious discaso contracted,
or injury received, in the line of duty in tho
service, it may be presumed that his deatli
occurred from such cause, if there is nothing in
the circumstance of the case to rebut such pre
sumption. Very respectfully,
M. D. .Toslyn,
I'ciniioii of tlio Thirty-third Mass. Infantry.'

THE CHARLES A. VOGELER CO.,
The 5cir Partnership in the House of A. Togeler
From the Baltimore ITeraZd, Oct. 11.
A most important change in one of the larg
est enterprises of the city took place yesterday,
and inquiry was busy in gathering the facts.
Immediately following the death of Mr.
Charles A. Yogeler the surviving partners of
the house, of which he had been the moving
spirit, issued a circular to tho trade and press,
which appeared in the columns of this paper.
It made public an arrangement which in the
exigencies of the moment was deeemed neces
sary, and announced that it was the desire of
all concerned to continue its affairs as they had
been previously conducted.
It was learned, late last evening, that certain
changes affecting the permanent establishment
of tho business had been resolved upon, aud
a reporter of the Herald was dispatched to
the office of Colonel Charles Marshall, attorney
for the estate of the lato Charles A. Yogeler,
where it was ascertained that negotiations had
been concluded, as follows:
That the interests of the surviviug partners
had been purchased by Mr. Christian Devries,a
member of tho old and substantial house of
William Devries & Co. and president of tho
National Bank of. Baltimore, and that a new
firm was about to be formed under the firm
name of Tho Charles A. Yogeler Co., this
name being in honor and perpetuation of the
memory of the late Charles A. Yogeler. It was
further ascertained that the new firm will be
composed of the widow of the late Mr. Yogeler,
(she retaining-her late husband's full interest,)
Mr. Christian Devries. as executive partner and
financial head, and Mr. If. D. Uinbstaettcr, who,
from the first step in the initial venture of tho
house of A. Yogeler & Co., was the manager of
the advertising department and confidential
adviser of Mr. Charles A. Yogeler.
Uy this arrangement it litis been fully deter
mined that all the plans and business purposes
of the late Charles A. Yogeler. the founder
and executive manager of the late firm, shall
be developed to their full fruition, and that the
popular preparations of the house, prominent
among which are St. Jacobs Oil aud Dr. August
Koenig's Hamburg Family Medicine, shall hold
their rank under new auspices and the new
There is one feature of this commercial epi
sode which appeals strongly to the kindliest
fueling and points a touching moral. Mrs.
Vogelcr holds her relation in tho firm with a
wifely courage. Her whole future is centered
in the resolve that the fruits of so valuable a
life as that of hoi-hushand"s, which was freely
sacriliccd in his ::eal for the welfare of his na
tive city, and that the aims and projects lie
pursued shall not be permitted to languish, but
shall be revived and strengthened to its credit
and to his honor and fanu and that she will
strive to build for him an enduring monument
in the enterprise ofhis own founding.
Old Chief Pocotello, now at the Fort Hall
agency, in answer to an inquiry relative to the
truo Christian character of a former Indian
agent at that place, gave in very terse language
the most accurate description of a hypocrite
that was ever given to the public; 'Ugh! too
much God and no Hour." Laramie Boomerang.
