a few days ago. She stated that she
paid duty on the dress when she re
ceived it, but Uat it did not fit, and she
wanted to send it back to Paris to have
it altered. She wanted to know whether
she could get it back again without pay
tag the duty the second time. Collector
Bubcrtsou said that the law required
that the duty should be collected a sec
ond time, as the garment was not in

remitted as a "personal effect" A
short time ago a gentleman imported a
fine bicycle from England and paid the
duty thereon. He used the Tehicle in

When he returned home with his bicycle
he was astonished to find that the cus
toms regulations required him to again
pay an import duty upon It. He was
told that the bicycle was a luxury of
foreign make and must pay duty every
time that it re-entered the country.

Governor Bate did not come he surely
onItL and deliver the address of welcome

to welcome the visitors. Hon. B. F. Smith,

livered a speecn eniogisuc ot oom
Federal and Confederate dead. He con

flowing current of the beautiful Tennessee
which perpetually Dawes me leetoi ice
hill in which rst onr beloved dead, comes
down from the uplands of the South to Join
its waters wita that of the great rivers ot
the North, so may the current of the
patriotic love of country come from
tbe Southland and Join others from
other parts ot the country tin all
are embraced in one sentiment of love
and respect for the Inseparable union of
States." General T. Lyle Dickey, Judge
of tbe Supreme Court of Illinois, spoke of
the motives that animated the parties to the
contest and the substantial benefits that re
sulted to the South, even from the fire
through which she had passed and the ter
rible experience always realized by the peo
ple ot a soil where armed hosts come to
gether to prove the earnestness of their con
victions by appealing to arms. He said
that from the
TEBX1BLZ CTVTL WAE
that had become a political necessity the
South had suffered greatly, it was true, bet
was recuperating so fast that within the
next decade she would be far more prosper
ous than before the war. He then related
some personal experiences of the battle and
interesting particulars regarding General
Lew Wallace and his command. He spoke
of the great sdf -sacrifices of the soldiers
of the North, and said tbe Union had been
cemented together by their blood. The
entire audience, which by this time had
been largely augajented by people from
across the river and the neighborhood, then
sang "Nearer my God to Tbee." the band
leading with cornets Tbe children of the
neighboring Sunday school sang a hymn
founded on Stonewall Jackson's last words.
"Let ns pass over the river.' This affected
many of the audience to tears, and was
well received. This was all that was said
or done In memory of the Confederates

as Sr'lou Church, looking for the places
