NewOauttm. Pec. ^J.-The city i* filling^with strangers, the morning I nuns bring^^ing in veterans from most of 'he southern^states. The display during the nliaeqnies^will be the most imposing ever seen in the^south. Military companies from Missis^sippi. Alabaiim. Tennessee and Georgia lie-^ing represented.
Guardsare still on duty at the city hall.^My actual count 4,(100 persons viewed the^Issly Ivtween 10 and 11 this morning.^Fully tiO.nOO persons viewed the remains^Sunday. The work of decorating private^and public building Roes on and by^Wednesday almost the entire city will be^in Humming dress. All places of amuse^^ment, business bouses, bnuks, etc.. will be^closed Wednesday. The funeral will take^pinti- lit noon mid .-very organization m tin^city will participate. It is arranged to take^place from the balcony of the uiunictiMil^building, so the public may witness the en^tire ceremony from Lafayette Square.
Thecity officials say under the peculiar^circumstances of the case. Seen tary Proc^^tor's reply to Mayor Shakespeare's dispatch^officially announcing the death of Davis^was very graceful, and written m a kindly^npirit. The Picayune, commenting on the^failure of Secretary Proctor to take official^notice of the death of l^avis, says: ^We are^strongly led to the conclusion thai the sec^returyof war. so far as intending wrong,^lias adopted what he believed and^what we believe, was a wise^and conservative course in the premises.^^All confederate soldiers are very much^pleased Willi the fraternal spirit which char^^acterized the remarks of Captain Jacob^Out, of the Grand Army of the Itcpnblic,^made lieforethe execut i\I coninntt. c Sntur-^dcy night. On that occasion he stated lie^would tie proud its a soldier of the I mbd^Iftntta. to honor the memory of the illustri^^ous patriot, soldier and statesman of the^south. He could not forget that .lerler-^soii II.iris had I ten also a soldier of the^t inted St it. s. who had rendered distill^gamins! aervice, or fail to recognize that^a great and pure man. Jefferson Davis,^should, as a gallant soldier. Is' accorded a^soldier's burial with every show of the pro-^foiindcst respect and love of his people ^If^it is agreed,^ continued Captain liiav. ^that^the body of that dead chieftain shall he^borne into the ci iu^^er\ upon shoulders of^old veterans, I. lis a representative of the^Grand Army of the Kepublic,shall certainly^demand to have a right to assist ill I he per^^formance of that sad honor and duty.
TheMBiMM mi raising a fund appointed^by the governor met to-night, and Associate^Jiisi ice Fcnner. at whose BOW* Mavis du d.^was made chairman. It was stated for Mrs.^Davis that she would refose to accept dona^^tions, but had no objection to the comple^^tion of tlie capital stock of the Davis Land^company. ^.f Jackson. The latter was or^^ganized with a view to raising $100,000 to^purchase 11,000 acres of land in Arkansas,^owned by Mrs. Davis. At the meeting of^MM committee in charge, the following tele^^gram was read:

Itis learned that all the army officers,^while they cannot take any official action in^regard to the death of Davis, have great re^^gard for Un as a solder and statesman anil^will attend the funeral.
