to bo completed without an international ar

were taken from tbe car and placed on u
caiafilquo in the main corridor of tbe
Union depot. Tne lid or tne coma was

ridor for tbe purpose of taking a last

weie unable to gain admission. Before

members of the city government were

THE LAST SAD BITES IN BOSTON.
Boston, November 28. A more than
Sabbath stillness seemed to brood over
this city a) morning broke, bright and
beautiful, and an added solemnity befit
ting the sad occasion ushered in the day
and imparted its influences to thousands
who assembled to witness the opening
of the last sad rites about to be paid by
the bereaved commonwealth to its late
distinguished eon. It wa expected that
the special train bearing the remains of
Ihe deceawed Vice-President would ar
rive at the depot of the Boston and Al
bany read at thirty minutes after nine
o'clock, and long before that hour the
crowd in waiting might be numbered by
thousands. A deiail of forty police and
eight mounted raen kept order in the de-
Sot and Lincoln street, leading from the
leach-street entrance, allowing no one
to pass in or out but those forming the
escort, guard of honor, and the various
designated committees. At nine o'clock
Colonel J K. Baker, of the governor's
council, Colonels Willaer and Gray, of
the governor's stall", Mayor Cobb, Alder
men Clark and Stebbins, and President
Board man of the common council,
and Councilmen Bracket!, Fiynu and
Wilson took carriages from the stale
house and drove to the depot. The
Firet corps of cadets, one hundred and
twenty mueketa, under command of
Lleufenant-Colonel Edwards, wore in
waiting, drawn up in lino on Lincoln
street. At half-past ten o'clock the
train moved into the depot, and police
men iu drees uniform, who had been de
tailed for this purpose, bore the casket
from the train to the Beach street en
trance. Captain Haycock, with his de
tachment of twelve marines.who had ac
companied the remains from Washiug
tiv, together with the officers cf the
Fifth Maryland regiment, marched on
either side of the ca3ket as a guard of
honor. While the body was being borne
through the depot a member ot tbe brig
ade band played a solo dirge upon tbe
cornet, this being the only music at the
depot or on the lino of march. Tbe cas
ket was placed in a hearse in waiting,
tbe cadet presenting arms as the cor
tege emerged from the depot. This cer
emony of bringing the remains from the
car to tbe hearse was solemn and im
posing, the utmost quiet prevailing with
tbe immense concourse of spectators,
variously estimated at from Ave to ten
thousand. Immediately upon placing
the remains in the hearse, the ccrp of
cadets wheeled into column of compa
nies, preceding the hoarse, to theeoleiiin
tappings of rnulikd drums. The escort
then slowly took up its march;
on either side, flanking the beaiss, was
u delegation of twelve marines, while
behind came officers of the Fifth Mary
land regiment, who wore crape on their
leit arms, lmmeaiateiy following wer
eleven carriages with gentlemen who
accompanied the remains, the rear being
brought up by a squad of police. The
efcort moved at fo ty minutes past five
o'clock to Doric hull at the statehouse,
where the remains were to be laid in
state. Along tbe line of march the ut
most quiet and reverence were shown to
the deceieed by the immense thioags
tbat lined tbe streets, while thesolemm
ty of the occasion was increased by the
tolling of tells, which continued until
the reinaius reached tbe statehouse.
Doric hall was heavily but simply
drapsd in black and white. The
base of each of the two rows
of columns In the center of tho ball were
trimmed in plain black, whl e the capi
tals were festooned in black and white
tastefully blended. The walls under tho
ceiling were also heavily bordered in tho
same m&nnor. The brass cannon in the
rear of the center' of the hall was sur
mounted by American flags entwined
with crape and resting on heavy black
drapery. Under the clock and baneath
tbe fltld-pleces tbe monogram of the
Vice-President was represented in black
lines and silver base ol large dimensions.
The decorations, though marked, were
unpretentious, according most ntly with
tho simplicity of the deceased Vice
Pi oaident'a life. As early as nine o'clock
crowds began assembling in the vicinity
of tho statehouse, and before the proces
sion escorting the remains had arrived,
some four or five thousand persons hau
assembled. The space in front bad been
roped oil', and details of police preserved
an open entrance for the proceshion.
Hardly a sound of conversation could
be heard, each and all of the vast crowd
seeming to be inspired with feelings of
Bclomnity befitting the occasion and
day. Shortly after the arrival of tho
funeral cortege, Governor Gaston, ac
companied by bis itaff and the execu
tive council, Governor Clafln and
others, descended from tbe executive
chamber and took stations, uncovered,
at the head of the dais which was pre
pared for the reception of the casket.
Every whisper was hushed, and silence
seemed to intens fy the solemnity of the
place as the first melancholy nota of
the-dirge broke upon the ear. When
the procession leached the statehouse
tbe paskot was borne upon theshoulders
of eight policemen, in dress uniform, up
the steps leading from Beacon ttreet to
the main entrance of the statehouse,
followed by a detachment of marii.es
with reversed arms as a guard of honor.
Eutering Doric hall, upon tbe entrance
floor of the building in presence of
the ijtate officials and others who stood
uncovered, the casket was placed upon
the dais where it will rernain until to
morrow, when tbe publfo funeral ser
vices will take place. Immediately
Colonel Wyman, of the governors stall',
under whose charge the body was
brought from Washington, and who,
with Colonel Campbeii, accorjipanied
them as they were brought Into the hall,
stepped forward arid saluted the com-mander-in
chief, and made a formal de
livery of the remains to the State au
thorities. He said: ' '
"YourejfoeJJenpy, Inobedience tpyour
orders we have proceeded to Waahing
n aDd received from the national oom
rnittee iiie remains cf Vice-President
Wilson, which we have escoited to Mas
sachusetts and now deliver to you."
Governor Gastou replied: "Massa
chusetts ieeelvt3 from ypu her JHus
triousdead. She will fee to it that he
whose dead body you have borne U us,
but wbose eplrlt has gone to a higher
service, shall receive honors befltting
the great office which In life he held. I
need not remind you that her people
will ever treasure with love and respsct
the memory of ber ditinculsnetl states
mau, and will nr t only guard and pre
lect tbe oody, tne cotlin ana tne grave,
but will also venerate his urns and his
fame. Gentlemen, for tho pious service
which you nave si well aud so tenderly
rendered, accept the tbaiiES or tue com
Kaon after the trovernor and his reti
nue retired, as did also Slayer Cobb and
the committee of tbe city government
which met tho remains at tho depot.
Before tbe casket w is uncovered, so as
to pcrrrit a view of the remains, it was
almost embedded iu fragrant flowerd.
At the head wa i placed a lirge cros-s and
crowu, anu at tne loot an ancnor; doio
designs being executed in their combi
nation cf rare flowers. Upiu the coflln
was another lame cross, vanecated in
color, and a harp compoeeu of white
roses and tube roses, aud other white
flowers, while upon aud around the
catftot were causes, bouquets, etc., xa
profusion. Captain Haycock will re
main on duty with the body as guard of
honor until it is deposited in its nnai
resting place, alNaticfc. As soon as the
necetsiry preliminaries were finished,
the lop of the casket was removed to
allow an opportunity for viewing trie
remains. Tne first to look upon tho
face of the dead was Governor Gaston,
his s'.ufT aud Ihe executive council, the
brotber or deceased, Mr., coicaitu,
Met are. Fred Douglas, James Wormly
and Kobert Purvis, of Washington, Ex-
Goveriior CI ail in and others. The doors
weiesoon after opened to a'lof the wait
ing tbrong to enter. These were allowed
to pass the ropes in squads of twenty or
tumy, ana came in tne mam entrance
directly into the Doric hall, in the center
or wnich was tbe dais. Passing: around
il they found an exit from Ihe building
mio'Jiiti tne rear entrance. Alt day till
Ave o'clock this evening a continuous
stream of visitors passed through the
building, and never were there lea-j than
two or three thousand in front of the edi
fice awaiting nn opportunity to follow
the thousands that had preceded. It is
estimated that between lifteeu and
twenty thousand pereone thus viewed
the remains before the doors of tbe
building were closed. This evening the
countenance of the deceased bore the
characteristics aud general appearance
when In life, and was somewhat natural
even in its deathly repose. The com
plexion, however, had changed consid
erably, showing that decomposition had
already far progressed iu its demolition
of the human temple.
THE CROWDS OF CURIOUS STILL PRESS
ING, Boston, November 29. Vast num
bers of people visited Doric hall this
morning t view tbe remains of Vice
President Wilson, while great crowds
gather3d in the vicinity of tne eta'e
heme, making it difficult for those eW
pecially invited to tho funeral to enter
the hall of representatives, where the
services were to ba held. Soon after
eleven o'clock Doric hall was closed,
and at half-pt3t eleven o'clock the coflln
was carried to tne ball or representa
tives and placed on the catafalque. Tne
ball was richly draped, aud numerous
fragrant floral tributes were conspicu
ous. Senator Boutwell, Frederick Doug
las, Carl Scbutz, General Banks, Gov
ernor elect Rice, and others were seated
at the right of the catafalque. Governor
Gaston, tho governcr'd council and staff
and tbo board of aldermen and
common council were in front
of tbe coflln; the governors of
other States, members aud ex-mem
bers or congress, mdees of Federal and
State courts, the mayor of Boston,
omcers or tne army aim navy, civic .of-
ncera ot me government, members or
the Stata legislature, and others, weie in
the main bsdy of the hall. The remain
ing seats wtre quickly tilled from the
thousands eagerly sacking admittance.
At half-past twelve o'clock everv seat
was taken and every inch of standine
fipace occupied. The clergymen having
taken their places, services were begun
by the singing of tbo hymn : heard a
voice saying unto me, ttc. Itsv. Dr. Mi

large number of civilians, anJ about
fifty carriages containing distinguished
guests, brought up the rear. Tho divis
ion of civilians, owing to the cold, was
much smaller than bad been antici

the finest ever seen In Boston. Thou
sands of people filled Beacon and the

commenced to move It was with
considerable difficulty sufficient passage

was then at least a mile and a half long.
The Btreet crossing next below the Cot
tage Farm station was selected as the
starting point for tho train Xhat was to
convey the body to Natlck. The crowds
which lined the thoroughfare traversed
by the procession were oontinued even
to the railroad station, where a large
number had gathered. At noon a cold,
biting wind was prevalent, at times so
as to retard somewhat the marching
of the troops, and yet the
multitude of spectators patiently
stood their ground. When the proces
sion reached the train the casket was
quicby conveyed from the hearse to the
train," down through tbe long Hues of
soldiers and civilians who stood with
heads uncovered, a band meanwhile
playing a dirge. Immediately on the
disposition of ihe casket in tho car pro
vided for its reception, the governor, his
B'afI and council, with tbe Independent
corp3of cadets, tho mariies and officers
of the Twenty fifth Maryland regiment,
were ateigued t cuts in tho train, which
immediately moved away from the city
toward Natick. Tho train consisted of
five cars, four passenger coaches, and
the car containing the casket, the
latter having been arranged especially
for the ocpasjon. The train passed many
other stations where crowds of people
had collected to pay tribute to the illus
trious dead. Airivingat Natiok shortly
after four o'clock, a great crowd of
townspeople thronged the square ant) all
apprpacheu t) the depot. The Grand
Army pot of the town WftS drawn up in
a hollow tqusre, and Immediately on
tbe arrival of tbe train the casket was
touve-yed to the hearse aud tbe line of
march was begun fjr the public hall,
the church bells meanwhile tolling.
Tho order cf procsseJon was as follows:
Brown's brigade band, Independent
corps of cadets, tbe hearse with
United S'ates marines as a body guard"
officers of the Fifth Maryland regiment
Governor Gaston and staff; executive
council and pall-bearers of ex-governors
or tnectaie. jn early every building in
tbe village was decorated with elaborate
displays of mourning. The sidewalks
in tbe neighborhood of the public square
were thronged with people attra.td
from all th country about to view tbe
solemn pageant. On reaching Clark's
block the cisket was conveyed to a laige
hall in the upper paf; of the buildlug
and rlaced on a catafalque. Here tbe
remains were delivered into tbe custody
of the town-selectmen by Governor Gas
ton, and were subsequently given into
the charge of the Grand Army nf the
KepuDiic pest, wno, witu tne united
States marines, will remain as a guard
until the burial on Wednesday. The
decorations in the hall are elegant. The
concluding services of the day among
Mr. Wilson's old-time associates were
especially solemn and impressive, deep
ly affecting the town-people who had as
sembled to pay the last heartfelt tribute
of respect to tneir departed fellow'
