Ak Eloquexx Tbibote to Grant
mor Henry Ward Beecher
A Soldier Wno Never Lo3t
Comaol or 31m Equanimity.
Boston, Oct. 22. An immense
crowd assembled in Tremont Tem
ple to-night to hear Henry Ward
Beeeher's eulogy on Gen. Grant.
The speaker began with a brief
synopsis of the life of Grant, allud
ing to his lack of success in early
business pursuits and his connection
with the war with Mexico. Ho re
ferred to the need of the North, at
the opening of the war of the Re
bellion, for a man of iron mold who
had but two words in his vocabu
lary, "victory" or "annihilation,"
and added: "Three great names
were rising to sight Sherman,
Thomas, Sheridan and larger than
either was Grant. With his advent
tho armies, with some repulses,
went steadily forward from conquer
ing to conquer. Aside from all his
military qualities, he had one ab
sorbing spirit, the Union must be
saved; the rebellion must be beaten;
the Confederate armies must bo
thrashed to chaff, as on a summer
thrashing lloor. lie had no political
ambition; no imagimuy reputation
to preserve or gain. A great genius
for grand strategy; a comprehen
sion of complex and vast armies ;
caution, prudence and silence while
preparing; an endless patience, an
indomitable will, and a real down
right lighting quality. . Thus, at
length, Grant was redly born. He
had lain in the nest long as an un
fertile egg. The brooding of the
war hatched the egg, and an eagle
MOTIVES RUMNO COMMANDERS.
The speaker then referred in de
tail to the condition of the armies,
the molics tilling the commanders
and soldiers of both sides, the many
fierce battles in which thousands
were killed and many more thou
sands were wounded, and added:
"Into this sulphurous storm of war
Grant entered almost unknown. It
was with difllculty that he could
obtain a command. Once set for
ward, Donelson, Shiloh, Vicksbuig,
Chicamagua, the Wilderness, Spott
sylvania, Petersburg, Appomattox,
these were his footsteps. In four
years he had risen, without political
iavor, from the bottom to the very
highest command, not second to anj'
living commander in the world."
Reviewing his military career as a
whole, Mr. Beecher said: "He
never lost his courage or equanimity.
With a million men, for whose move
ments he was responsible, he yet
carried a tranquil mind, not dis
tressed by disasters nor elated by
success. Gentle of heart, familiar
with all, never boasting, always
modest his work was done and the
defeat of the Confedeiate armies
was final. This dreadful man of
blood was as tender toward his late
adversaries as a woman toward her
son. He imposed no humiliating
conditions, spared the feelings of
his antagonists, sent home the dis
banded Southern men with food and
with horses for working their crops.
And when a revengeful spit it in the
Executive chair showed itself and
threatened the chief Southern Gene
rals, Grant, with holy indignation,
interposed himself and compelled
his superior to relinquish his rash
ability not luck.
The speaker dwelt at some further
length upon Grant's military career,
refuting, in passing, tho charges
which attributed his success to luck,
and criticisms upon what some called
the waste of life of his own soldiers
and the butchery of his enemies,
and in concluding his remarks upon
Grant's military life, said: "All
summer, all the autumn, all the
winter, all the spring and in the
early summer again, he hammered
Lee with blow on blow until at Ap
pomattox the great, but not the
greatest Southern General went to
the ground. Having brought the
long and disastrous war to a close,
in his own heart Grant would have
chosen to have rested upon his
laurels and lived a retired military
, life. It was not to be permitted.
He was called to the Presidency by
universal acclaim, and it fell upon
him to conduct the campaign of re
construction, even more buidensomc
After dwelling upon tho various
acts of Gen. Grant's national ad
ministration and his reconstruction
policy, the speaker summed up his
adininistrativo career as follows:
'"On the whole, if one considers the
intrinsic difficulty of the questions
belonging to his Administration, the
stormy condition of politics and
parties during his eight years, it
- 'must be. admitted that the country
I owes to his unselfish disposition, to
hjs general wisdom, to his unsullied
integrity, if not the meed of the
wisest, yet the reputation of one
who, pre-eminent in war, was emi
nent in administration, more perhaps
by the wisdom of a noble nature
than by the intelligence- which is
bred only by experience. Yet im
perious counselors and corrupt para
sites dimmed tho light of his political
Mr. Beecher then dwelt upon the
retired life of Gen. Grant, referring
to his business reverses and the
equanimity which characterized him
subsequently, and after speaking
briefly of his fatal sickness, con
cluded as follows: "A man he was
without vices, with absolute hatred
of lies and an ineradicable love of
truth ; of perfect loyally to friend
ship, neither envious of others nor
selfish himself. With zeal for the
public good unfeigned, he has left
to memory only such weaknesses as
connect him to humanity and such
virtues as will rank him among
heroes. The tidings of his death,
long expected, gave a shock to the
whole world. Governments, rulets,
eminent statesmen and scholars from
all civilized nations gave sincere
tokens of sympathy. For the hour
sympathy rolled ns a wavo all over
our land. It closed the last furrow
of war, extinguished the last preju
dice, effaced tho last vestige of
hatred, and cursed be tho hand that
blings them back. Johnston nnd
Buckncr on one side of his bier,
Sherman and Sheridan on the other,
he has come to his tomb a silent
sj'mbol that liberty had conqnered
slavery; patriotism, lebcllion: and
peace, war. He rests in peace. No
drum or cannon shall disturb his
rest. Sleep, hero, until another
trumpet shall shake the heavens and
earth! Then come foith to glory in
ENGLAND AND RUSSIA.
How Negotiations Regarding TnE
Afghan Frontier Dispute were
York, Oct. 23. A London
says the oiucial nine
Book giving a history of the nego
tiations between Great JJritain and
Russia regarding tho Afghan fron
tier question was issued to-day. It
is much more interesting reading
than such summaries usually are,
and it gives all the information that
will ever lie officially supplied re
garding the crisis of last spring,
which most people believed would
culminate in a great war. The pub
lication of the Blue Book at this
time is bound to have a great effect
upon English politics, and its results
arc almost certain to lie more favor
able to the Conservative than to the
Libei al party. The Afghan contro
veis3T, of which this volume is a his
tory, began during the late Liberal
Administration and was brought to a
close by the present Conservative
Government. About one-half of the
British despatches published in the
book are signed by Karl Granville,
and the other half by Lord Salis
bury, the present Premier.
The contrast between, the des
patches is most marked. Gran
ville's utterances are marked by
weakness and shiftiness. They fre
quently show much craftiness of a
kind which' suggests that they were
the work of Gladstone's mind, al
though of Granville's hand, but
they arc over-matched, even in craft,
by the replies of l)c Gicrs, the
Russian Foreign Minister. Salis
bury's despatches, on the other
hand, arc noticeably firm and vigor
ous. Their perusal has a breezy
and refreshing effect upon the
reader, after the paltering plati
tudes that preceded them. It is
evident that Lord Salisbur3T, when
he reluctantly assumed his great
office, had a well-settled policy re
garding Russia, and that lib steadily
and sturdily pursued it. His suc
cessful management of this moment
ous controversy is now for the first
time revealed to the world. It de
serves to rank, and doubtless will
rank, alongside of tho British tri
umphs won by Salisbury and
Beaconsfield in tho diplomatic tour
nament known to history as the Berlin
From tho moment that Salisbury
took control of affaiis tho tone of
the despatches from St. Petersburg
became greatly changed. They had
been alternately sneering and threat
ening; they became elusive and
crafty, but always respectful. Some
of tho dodges resorted to by Russia
aro amusing in the light of subse
quent events. "When it became evi
dent to the Russian official mind
that it was useless to try to brow
beat Salisbury, Do Gicn. suggested
that the question of the ownership
of tho Zulfikar Pass bo postponed
until tho other points were settled.
The proposal -was promptly nega
tived by Salisbury. Do Giers then
offered to submit tho Zulflknr Pass
P question to u Geographical Commis
sion. 'Xlus was albo peremptorily
refused and Russia yielded.
It is evident from the btudy of
the despatches that war trembled in
the balance on several occasions.
There were also incidental squab
hie about certain Persian matters,
which ineicato that sooner or later
there will bo a serious complication
between Persia and England.

putable after three years and payablo

3d .The premiums on a Tontine po
licy are the same as on tho Ordinary
Life, but, while the latter is only pay.
able in the ovent of death, tho holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
tho whole of tho reserve and tho accu

he can, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that tho return
paid in cash on maturing Tontino po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho average cost of the
assurance will bo only about the interest
on the premiums.
Gth Tontino policies, like others, aro
