Chattanooga. Tenn.. Sept. 19.?After an inter
val of thirty-two yeara the Hlue and the Gray to
day met around thp Cfaacanl of Snodgrass Hlll. on
the battlefield of Chickamaupa, hut not, as then.
amld Ihe leaden hall and clash of ateel whlch
marked th.se dreadful days of 1*.63. I'nder one
flap, a reunlted h -st devote-d to the advancement
and proapeiitjr of one common country, the vet
eran foemen of a third of a century ago met to
day to dedloate as a National p.-rk the pround
made aa :-red hy the blo >d of be-roefl who foupht at
Chattan ^-opa was early astir, and all the morn?
ln*? the roada to the ChUkamauga Beld were fllled
with veh'.cies, carrylng spectators of the de-dica

GENERAL 0. O. HOWARD.
aranized for tbe occaaion, ar.d by that apency lt
was made posslble for the preal crowd of vlsltors
to reach the grounda. The cxerc'.ses were held on
an immenee stand built near the observation
tower on Snodgrass Hlll, the centre of the deadly
openlng day's confllet
A CONGREGATION OF NOTABLE MEN.
The Southern sun never shone more flercely
than on the hosts gathered about Snodgrass Hill.
lt haa been a memorable occaaion, but note
?worthy for its heat and auffeiing. Thr.se who
/..ught at Chlckamnupa did nol stiffer much more
than did the thousands who surged or. the battle?
field to-day to do them honor. Though in some
respects the occurrencea of this week were not
up to advertised expectations, there was attend
ance enough and to spare when omfon is con
sidered. The greatcst feature of the celebratlon.
however, was not bo much the crowd a* the ag
gregatLn of prt-atn.-ss which looked down on
Ihe th u.ai.ib .rom i>ne mt-ai roatrum. Never
before ln any Southern city. and seldom ln any
clty. North or South, has there been such a con
gregatlon of Governors, milltary leaders and men
eminent in civil and polltlcal llfe.
At noon, when aii was ready fnr the carrylng
out of the programme wbtch proclalmed Chicka
r-'-uipa fiold a National military park. there were
thousands ln view from the Bpeakera* rostrum.
The crush was tcrrib'e. Tlx* wonder was that
there wrre no accidents and r,.> proatratlona It

Madrld, Sept. 19?The "Imparclal" has a dls
patch from Havana giving the partieulars of the

mlral Delgado Parejo was on board the warshlp
when she steamed out of the harbor at mldnlght
last nlght, lntendlng to vlslt the TBriOBS i><>rts
of the island. As the warshlp rounded tho
promonltory at the entrance of the bay she slght
ed the Montera, which was Just entering the
harbor. The warshlp gave the regular whlstle
to notify the Montera tbat she would keep to
starboard. The Montera mlstook the slgnal to
mean that the warshlp would go on the porl Blde,
and she heraelf went 10 starboard. A few mln?
utes later came tho collislnn. A sailor on the
warshlp. Immedlately before the acident hap
pened, had acddentally stoppad tho electrlc cur?
rent and the llghts were extlnguished. This added
to the confusion, but the orew of the warshlp
showed no slgna of panic and kept manfully at
their posts. Admlral Parejo, wlth Adjutant
Gast'.n d'Aroca, ascended the bridge, where they
Jolned Captaln Ybanez. A few moments later.

The Montera was badly damaged by the col
