Yesterday evening Qoo.'W. Do
Long Post, No. 49, Grnnil Army
of tho Kopublic, colebratcd its
foiirtei'iitli nnnivorsary in ningni
liceut style. ltd annual camp iiro
was hold at tho homo of Senator
Wright, a Past Coinmandor of tho
Post, at Littlo Britain. Incandes
cant olectrio lamps in tho trees
along Shotidun street and tho lano
leading thorofrom lighted tho way
from King street to tho front of
tho houso. The front and side ver
andas worofringedabovo with stars
and stripos bunting, and draped at
intervals with American and Ha
waiian ilags gracefully festooned.
AVithin,tho rooms wore brilliantly
lighted with electricity and fornB
and ilowors refreshed tho scone.
Out on tho lawn toward tho sea
two long tableB sot at right angles
woro loaded with the material of a
varied collation, and chairs in
long swooping crescont rows were
sot buck a few yards for tho guosts.
In rear of tho chairs strings of
colored lanterns were hung aloft,
completing,with the foliago of tho
park, a ecouo of entrancing charm
onhauced by tho intermittently
shaded effulgence of tho full
"Completing" has been hastily
written, for a gorgeous elemont is
yot to bo udded, which will make
tho picluro one of woird beauty,
Buch as anybody not seoing it
must endeavor to imagine by tho
aid of tho "Arabian Nights En
tortainmeujB." Just beyond tho
glado where the feast is laid as
described, thoro looms up a dark
pile some fifteen feet high, which
might bo a iniiBl; for one of tho
death-doaljng Dahlgren batteries
of the "times that tried men's
soulb." Curiobity as to tho object
is not long unsateu. A lighted
match is applied to tho pilo and
tho vots." and ladies and
other guests aro called out
to seo tho camp firo propor. Tho
flaniCB pot quickly up to busineps.
They sizzle and hiss among tho
tinder, wiggle nil ovor tho cover
iug of light branches, and then
loap high in great tongues of liv
iug lire, scorching tho tops of tall
trees in their furious play. At
this stago it is moro of a bonliro
than tho cheerful glow of a camp,
but it soon settles down to the
heavy substructure of burly logs
and stumps. Then it is n camp
iiro in reality and it lasts in lusty
vigor all through tho moro thau
two succeeding hours, while tho
feast of good things is dispatched
and tho wearers of tho blue in tho
oarly sixties, metaphorically,
shoulder their crutohos and tell
tho present generation how tho
battlos of the " irrepressible con
llict" woro fought and won.
Post Coinmandor R.Jay Greene,
when tho camp Iiro had properly
materialized, addressed tho com
puny now gathered in tho pro
vided sentB facing tho waiting
feivt, partly in terms as follows:
Fellow comrades, ladies nud
gontlomon, members of MoKinloy
and Bryan clubs, all friends: It
was Harry Longfellow that said
Plymouth Itock was tho corner
stone of the Republic I think it
could bo said that tho camp iiro
is tho hearthstono of tho Repub
lic. Looking at this glowing
camp iiro tonight brings
to mind tho camp fires
of loug ago with somo vory sad
and some vory unpleasant associ
atious.yet with a few recollections
of a pleasant, ovon a jolly nature.
Lot us in pieseuco of this cheer
ful blazo Btrivo to forgot all tho
unpleasant recollections and ouly
think of the jolly times wo had
around tho camp fires of moro
thau thirty years ago. It has
boon announced that tho trouble
this ovoning would begin at oight,
but I can toll you that 1 saw signs
of trouble hero an hour and a half
!go. The lines of caro woro deop
y marked in tho faces of our host
and hostess, Cotnrado nnd Mrs.
Wright. Our bugler will now
sound the call for rations. j
A Comrade All hands to grub!
P. P. C. Wright springs a Tun-so
Comdr. Greono cills for volnn
teors to holp tho ladies to tho ban
quet. Thero was forthwith a cheerful
hum of social conversation ovor
pork and beans declared by tho
votoians on till hands-to bo better
than the rations in camp with
roiiet turkey, sandwiched, dough
nuts, pumpkin pie, cake,
etc., delicacies foreign to camp
and siego, washed down with
coffee rather superior, according
to the judgment of thosoontitlcd to
know, to tho doepctions supplied
by tho army commissariat.
After "pipo lighting" had been
announced.cigars of fine brand be
ing distributed, tho eutiro com
pany sang tho "Battle Cry of

United States of Amorica," call
ing upon tho American Minister
Minister Willis felt himself
highly honored on an occasion
like this to reply to tho toast of
tho President of tho Great Repub
lic, which owed its existonce to
tho notion of tho bravo men some
of whom wore assembled around
this camp firo. It was with tho
highest gratification that he was
presont at such a scene, whore
thoy kept green tho patriotic
memories of tho bloody events of
moro thau thirty years ago. Tho
result of that couflict decided that

was no room for two nations there.
Tho outcome of tho struggle wns a
lesson to Europe. An English
man and a Frenchman were talk
ing in Paris and ono said tho best
thing could happen was a good
beating to tho United States.
Horace Greoley, who heard tho
conversation, remarked: "Thero
is no other nation to lick us, there
foie, we have to lick oursolve?,
Kentucky, the spoakerls nativo
State, sent its full quota to both
armie3, yet today, if tho Union
was threatened by a foreign foe,
its peopln would spring to tho
front ns one man to dofond the
nation. The peoplo of tho South
would stand as faithfully to tho
tiue Hag as thoy had to their own
falso ilag. Tho civil strife hod
been inevitable to decide whether
tho nation was to stand indivisible
or fall to pieces. Minister Willis
spoke of dangers now threatening
tlioir beloved country, but said all
thoir internal differences would bo
settled in peace. If ovor tho call
to "tramp, tramp," Bhould again
bo hoard in thoir land, tho "boys"
would quickly bo found "march
ing" to tho defense of tho nation's
integrity or its honor. Minister
"Willis mado an eloquent ncknow'
lodgment of his intense pleasuro
at participating in tho rare Bcono
oE that ovemng, among tho veter
an defenders of his nation dwell
ing and sojourning iu this neigh
boring friendly country. Ho was
loudly applauded at frequent in
tervals and received a regular ova
tion as ho sat down.
Comrado Eaton, introduced
with a story by tho Post' Coin
mandor, related some of his exper
iences m robol prisons, whero the
Unionists lived nigh m anticipa

with tho bad dreams of repletion,
but woro trained down to rather

General Hartwell responded to
tho toast, "Our Order." It m ght
na well bo understood that no
man cau belong to tho Grand
Army of the Republic unless ho
had served in tho army or tho
navy of tho Union in tho war of
tho Rebellion nnd had been
honorably discharged. This
meant something to those who
participated iu that great conilict,
which tho younger generation,
who did not live in those times or
woro too young to romembor them,
woro scarcely nblo to realize.

A Now York dispatch of Sep
tember 1, coucerning Li Hung
Chung's arrival, has tho following
interesting description of tho
great Chinaman's habits:
"Lo Comto Li Hung Chang,
Ambassador Extrnordinnry and
Plenipotentiary," as his card
roads, with his two doctors, sis
cooks, secretaries nnd other fol
lowers, is now tho guest of tho
United States. It is
needless to say that Li Hung
Chang is one of the most uotnblo
mon of tho age. Pretty near
ovory ono hi this country knows
it by this time. It is not so gn-
orally known that ho is consider
ed tho richest man iu tho world,
having an estimated fortuno of
SoOO.OOO.OOO. Moreover, ho has
been burning money evar sinco
ho loft China to nttoud tho coro
nation of tho Car at Moscow.
An oxamplo of tho way ho spends
his colossal income was given at
tho Borlin exhibition. When
looking ovor tho jewelry exhibit
ho saw some diamonds and po.irlB
which ho thought would ploaso his
daugh tor-in la w,tho wifo of his Bon,
Viscount Li Ho told tho manag
er through his interpreter that ho
would buy them. This managor
wbb a stolid Gorman, otherwise
ho might have fainted. Tho cost
of tho goms nmouutod to 250,000,
nnd wliiloit did not phaso Li, it
worried his chief secretary, who
whirpored to tho groat Chinaman
that thoro was not that much
money at immedinto command. Li
ordered him to seo that tho bill
was paid at onco, nud this was
evidently douo, as his daughter
in-law had the gems when tho
party reached London a weok
lator. Li's cofliu is a subject of
intorest whorovor ho travols. He
always takes it with him, as ho
expects to dio at any time, nud
wants to bo laid away in tho oith
odox Chinese stylo when tho
time conn's. Ho had his cofliu
sent to London during tho corona
tion festivities at Moscow, as ho
foarod its presence might mar tho
gonnral joy of tho Czar. Li Hung
Chang has had his coffin
for moro thau thirty years,
and ovory onco iu a while
it is necessary to ropair some of
tho trimmings, as it is a highly
ornamented affair. It weighs iivo
hundred pounds, and a separate
Btato room wob engaged for it on
tho steamer St. Louis. Its
original cost wns 830,000, and to
maintain it for so long n time has
cost S'20,000 moro. Tho cost of
carrying it around tho world this
trip is oloso to S2000. It is mado

Prince Bismarck and Gonornl
Grant agreed that Li was tho
elovorost diplomat that thoy had
ever mot, and ho carries his dip
lomacy down to tho littlo nffairB of
overyday lifo. It was a bit of deli
cato diplomacy to send his coffin
to London out of respect for tho
Czar's feeliugs, and it also showed
his tact and refin ment, for Li is n
thoroughbred gentleman in every
inoh of his six feet of manhood.
