Account of tlio Funeral.
An old paper, mellowed by the touch of
time. Is the Ulster County Gazette, pub
lished at Kingston, and dated January,
1600. It measures but twelve by twenty
Inches, has but four pages, each contain
ing four columns of printed matter.
On the first page is an account of tbc
visit from the Speaker of the House to the
President to him their address in answer
to his Bpeech at the opening of Congress.
John Adams was then President, and.hls
, reply is clothed in the quaint, ceremonious
phraseology of the gentlemen of the old'
school.
"This very respectful address from the
representatives of the people of the United
States, at their first assembly of the fresh
election, under the strong impression of
the public opinion and national sense at
this interesting and singular crisis of our
public affairs, has excited my sensibility
end receives my sincere and grateful
acknowledgments."
The address goes on to state that under
the smiles ot Dh lno Providence, we shall
effectually promote and extend our na
tional interests and happiness. Then he
thanks the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives for the applause bestowed upon
the volunteers and militia. There follows
an account of .the visit paid by tho Senate
In a body for the tamo purpose, to which
the President's reply is worded in a Eimilar
manner.
LATEST TOBEIGN NEWS.
This paper, published In January, con
tains the latest news from London, dated
October 18, and gives an account of a
battle near Winkle between the Hutch,
under Gen. Dacndals, and the British, under
Prince William of Gloucester, in which the
British, though greatly Inferior In numbers,
successfully routed their enemy.
A wnr dispatch from Lieut. Col. Ram
say to Lord Greenville, dated, "Headquar
ters, Shaffbausen, September 30," gives
an account ot an attack on the allied army,
the result being favorable to the enemy.
This relates to the campaign In Switzer
land. But the Inner pages are of vital Interest
to Americans. The pages are heavily bor
dered with black, and the lines dividing
the columns are also of deep mourning
bands. The proceedings of Congress are
reported and dated Thursday, December
29, and are as follows:
"Jlr. Marshal, with deep sorrow on bis
Your
Fall
If you have not already purchased one, it is
no use delaying. Perhaps you are hesitating,
because you don't know where you can get the
best suit for the least money. Well, it doesn't
cost you anything to come in and see our stock,
and make all the inquiries you like the more
critically you examine our goods' the better we
like it they bear thorough examination.
Do you want a good Overcoat one that you
can depend upon but one that won't cost you
much? "- "

of rolcerroae and addressed the House as
fgllows:
" 'The melancholy event which was yes
terday announced without doubt has becu
rendered but too certain. Our Washing
ton Is no more! The hero, the sage and tho
patriot of America the man on whom in
times of danger i-very eye was turned and
an "hopes were plated Iles now only In
hlStOwn great actions and in the bearta
of his afflicted people.
" 'If, sir. It had not been usual openly
to testify respect for the memory of those
whom beaten has selected as Its Instru
ments fordispensiag good to man, jet such
has been the uncommon worth, and 6uch
the extraordinary incidents which have
marked the life ot him whose loss we all
deplore, that the whole American nation.
Impelled by tbc same feelings, would call
with one olce for a public manifestation
of that sorrow which Is so deep and uni
versal. FOUNDED TnE EAiriRE.
" '.More than any other Individual, and
as much as to one individual was possible,
has be contributed to found this our
wldcspreadlng empire and to give to the
western world Its Independence and free
dom. Having effected tbe great object
for which be was placed at the head of our
armies, we have seen him convert tbe
sword Into tbe plowshare and voluntarily
sink tbe soldier Into the citizen.
"When tho debility of our Federal system
had become manifest and the bonds which
connected the parts of the vast continent
were dissolving we have seen him, the chief
of those patriots 'who formed for us a Con
stitution, -which by preserving the Union
wilt, I trust, substantiate aud perpetuute
those blessings our revolution had promised
to bestow. In obedience to the general
voice of his country calling on him to pre
side over a great people we have seen him
once more quit the retirement he loved, and
in a season more stormy and tempestuous
than -war Itself, with calm aud wise deter
mination, pursue the true Interests of the
nation and contribute more than any other
could contribute to the establishment of that
system of policy -which -will, I trust, yet
preserve our peace, our honor aud our inde
pendence. "naving been twice unanimously chosen
the Chief Magistrate of a free people, we
see him at a time when his re-election with
the universal suffrage could not have been
doubted, affording tbe world a rare In
stance of moderation by -withdrawing from
his high station to the peaceful walks of
private life.
"However public confidence may change,
and tbe public affections fluctuate with re
spect to others, yet with respect to him they
have, in war and In peace, in public and in
private life, been as steady as his own firm
mind and as constant as bis own exalted
virtues.
EVIDENCES OF JIOUItNING.

These resolutions were unanimously
agreed to, sixteen n.nbcrs were appointed

tain the time when it would be convenient

MESSAOE OF THE SENATE-,,
The messageof the Senate then follows:
"Tbe Senate of tbe United States re
spectfully take leave, sir, to express to-you
their deep regret for the loss, their country
has sustained In the death ot Gen. George'
Washington. This event, so distressing
to all our fcllow-cltlzens, must be pecu
liarly heavy to you, who have loug"becn
associated with him in deeds of patriotism.
Permit us, sir, to mingle our tears with
yours. On tbis occasion it is 'manly to
weep. To lose such a man at such a crisis
Is no common calamlt) to the world. Our
country mourns her father. The Almighty
Disposer of Human Events has taken from
us our greatest benefactor and ornament.
It becomes us to submit with reverence
to Him, who "maketh darkness His pa
vilion.' "With patriotic pride we review the
life of our Washington and compare Vim
with those of othercountrles who have been
pre eminent in fame, Ancunt and modern
fames are diminished licfore him Great
ness and guilt hac too often been allied.
but his fame is whiter than It is brilliant.
The destroyers of nations stood abashed,
at the majesty of his virtue It reproved
the temperance of their ambition and
darkened the splendor of victory.
"The scenes closed, nnd we are no longer
anxious lest misfortune should sully bis
glory. He has traveled o" o the end of his
Journey, and carried with him an increas
ing weight of honor, nc has deposited it
safely where misfortune cannot tarnish
it, where malice cannot blast It. Favored
of heaven, he departed without exhibit
ing the weakness of humanity; magnani
mous Jn death, tbe darkness of the grave
could not obscure bis brlgbtness.
"Such was the man we deplore. Thanks
to God, bis glory 1b consummated. Wash
ington yet lives upon earth in his epotless
example; bis spirit Is in heaven. Let his
countrymen consecrate tbe memory of the
heroic general, the patriotic statesman,
and tbc virtuous sage. Let them teach
their children never to forget that tbc fruits
of bis labors and his example are their
Inheritance."
The President's reply was in keeping with
this tribute eulogizing tbe dead, of whom
he spoke as if of a dead brother.
FKESIUENT ADAMS' REPLY.
"The life ot our 'Washington," he said,
"cannot suffer by comparison with those
of other countries, who have lieen cele
brated and exalted by fame. The attri
butes und decorations of royalty could only
have served to eclipse tbe majesty of those
virtues, which made him from being a mod
est citizen, a more resplendent luminary.
Misfortune, had be lived, could hereafter
have sullied bis glory only with those su
perficial minds, who, believing that char
acter and actions are. marked by success
alone, rarely deserve to enjoy it. Malice
could ne er blast bis honor, and envy made
him a singular exception to ber nnhersal
rule.
"For himself, be had lived long enough to
life and glory. For his fcllow-cltlzcna, if
their prayers could have been answered,
be would have been Immortal. Forme, his
departure is a most unfortunate moment.
Trusting, however. In the wise and right
eous dominions of Providence over pas
sions of men, and the result of their coun
cils and actions, as well as over tbclr
lives, nothing remains for me but bumble
resignation.
"His example is now complete, and it
will teach wisdom and virtue to magis
trates, citizens and men, not only In the
present age, but In future generations, as
long as our history shall be read. It a
Trojan fonnd a Pliny, a Marcus Anrellus
can never want biographers, eulogists or
historians. JOHN ADAMS."
United States, December 22, 1709.
Then follows a description of the fu
neral, and how the multitude from miles
around assembled at Mount Vernon, to
take a last look at the calm, serene face
of tbe dead.
On tho ornament at the head of tbe
coffin was inscribed, "Surge ad Judlcum,"
about the middle of the coffin, "Gloria
Deo," and on tbe silver plate
GENERAL
GEORGE WASHINGTON,
Departed this life on the 14th December,
1799. Act. 68.
"Between 3 and 4 o'clock the sound of
artillery from a vessel In the river, firing
minute guns, awoke afresh our solemn sor
row. Tbe corpse was removed, a band of
music with mournful melody melted the
soul into all the tenderness of woe. The
procession was formed, and moved In the
following order:
Cavalry, infantry, guards, with anus re
versed. Musio.
Clergy.
The General's horse, with saddle, holsters
and pistols.
Pall-bearers Cols. Sims Ramsay, Payne,
Gllpen, MnesteUer, Llttla-
Corpse.
Mourners
Masonlo brethren.
Citizens.
"When the procession bad arrived at the
bottom of the elevated lawn on tbe bank
of the Potomac, where the family vault is
placed, tbe cavalry halted, the Infantry
marcbed towards tbe mount and formed
their lines. The clergy, ths Masonlo
brothers and the citizens descended to tbe
vault and tbe funeral services of tbe
church was performed. Tbe firing was
repeated from the vessels in tbe river,
and tbe sound echoed from tbe woods and
bills around.
"Three general discharges by the Infantry,
the cavalry and eleven pieces of artillery,
which lined tbe banks of the Potomac back
to tbe vault, paid tbe last tribute to tbe
entombed commander-in-chief of tbe armies
of the United States and to tbe departed
hero.
"The sun was now setting. Alas tho Son of
Glory was set forever. No tbe name of
Washington, tbe American President and
general will triumph over death. The
unclouded brlgbtness ot bis glory wttl
Illuminate future ages."
Such is the modest recording of tbe death
and burial ot the greatest ot America's
sons George Washington.

President Adams' Spade.
Old residents of Georgetown tell some
cutIous stories of early days there. Tbc
plnce was a metropolis for this part of
.Maryland -when Washington was founded.
Ii was laid out in 17C1 and was in sight
of its seral-centennlal when "Washington
Tor a long time after tho National Capi
tal had been laid out it continued to be
the business center. It grew steadily
till 1830 and, tlieu in tbe next decade
fill off greatly in business and declined
a few hundreds in population.
Aliout that time there began to be great
complaint that tbe farmers and travelers
and everybody, attracted by the govern
ment Interests beyond Hock Creek, were
getting In, the habit of passing through
Georgetown without stopping at all. Even
thi; farmers of Montgomery county would
no longer stop to traffic in butter and
eggs and barter for ribbon and molasses.
One ot the sights of the town in those days
was tbe gangs of negroes brought in for
sale. The farms of Montgomery County
had then been greatly imiioerishcd by bad
farming and sblftlessncns. It is to tbc
great credltofthclnhabltantsthat they have
since seen the mistake ot careless treatment
ot their land -and have made tbe county one'
ot the best farming sections on the Atlantic
coast, Jtut then tbc negrocsu-constituted
the most valuable crop.
Frequently an old farmer would sell a
whole family, and often buygrs for the
Georgia cotton plantations would have a
gang of twenty or thirty to bring in at one
time. They were wont to come marching
through the streets at evening on tbc way
to Williams' slave pen, "on the Island," as
South Washington was then known. The
"bucks" were ranged alongside a log chain
thirty feet long, handcuffed in a double
row.
A DOLErUL SPECTACLE.
They were followed by -wagons bringing
the women and children. It was usually
jx doleful spectacle. Sometimes, however,
tbe sorrow, of leaving home and kindred
would have passed away and themeu would
be singiug plantation melodies while the
families were laughing and talking to
gether as pleasantly as an emigrant
train moylng to the far West.
One autumn, eighty-five years ago, the
town authorities were seized with a desire
for improvements. They wanted a bridge
across the Potomac and lights for tbe
streets. The latter they sccurred by a vote,
and oil lamps were put up at the corner
of every .street. The streets bad recently
been renamed. Tbe lamps were especially
needed, it was stated, to enable citizens
to get home from church Sunday nJght.
These lamps continued In use until 1848.
Tbe posts had gradually decayed, andas on
disappeared it was not displaced. Finally,
there were only four. These were about
the market place. A runaway wagon one
day tore away one of these nnd for nearly
a j ear three furnished the street lighting.
On September 20, 1810, tbc same year
tbe lights were put up, a contract was
awarded to Richard Tarrot to make a rope
long enough to reach across the Potomac
at low tide, Tbe rope was completed at the
appointed time, and the whole population
turned uut to see It Etrctcbed across tbe
stream.
STRETCHING THE CAULE.
First a dozen men took their stations on
each side of the river and attempted to
lift the cable from Its position on boats
in the river. They were unable, of course,
to stir It. Then about fifty on a side made
tbe attempt, and finally every able-bodied
man In tbe town was called on, but they
only succeeded in pulling the ropu Into the
water and getting it wet, after which
there was no hope of ever stretching It
tight so as to get the width or the stream.
Tbe'cffort was never repeated.
In January, 1825, a novel experiment
was tried. It was the use of a steel triangle
instcjd of a bell. It was hung on the tower
of the town hall and was sounded at various
times to give signals oLmeetings and fires.
It's chief use, however, was to ring at
10 o'clock at night to give the negroes
warning to clear tho streets. It was very
effective- for tins purpese, but finally one
night the cord which held It wore through
and the instrument came crashing through
the roof of the watch tower. It was never
replaced, but the old system of blowing a
warning with tin horns was resumed.
One of the most exciting episodes was the
carrying away ot a numberof slaves by ab
ollUoulsts in 1848. On Saturday, April
15, that year, the schooner Pearl came
into port. She was commanded by Capt.
Sayres. During the day she discharged a
cargo of wood. Next morning the Pearl
-was gone, and a score of Washington and
Georgetown families had to get Sunday
breakfast for themselves. In all, soventy
tliree slaves were missing.
MANNED FOR ACTION.
"Volunteers offered and tbe steamer Salem
was manned with a heavily armed force
tnd a swivel gun placed aboard. Chase
was begun down the bay. In tbe meantime
word was sent to Baltimore to intercept
the runaways there.
But the Salem overbanled tbe Pearl at
Cornfield Landing, near tbe moutb ot the
Potomac. .No resistance was offered and
the two boats reached Georgetown about
the middle of the same week. The negroes
were restored to their masters and somo of
them, doubtFess?soundly whipped.
Tbewbltemetion the FearLAtpt. Sayres,
Daniel Drayton, and Chester English, were
held for trial tirider $73,000 bond for eacb.
About the jQmo'tbo negroes were brought
back a mob attacked the office of tbe
National 'Eta, kn abolitionist paper, pub
Isbed by J. TV, Bailey. Tbo building was
Just opposite he Patent Office and a
nighty throng dissembled.

the office Tand1 faced the crowd. Plao

"The man wh'bgoes la bere to-night must

A man named Hunnaker, a printer.
Jumped on a barrel and began to harangue

BENSIBLB ADVICE.
"While he was talking," recently said
Judge W. C. Harper, who was present, "an
old gentleman came along and remarked
that the bystanders -were encouraging tbe
riot and If they would go home order
would be restored. I was much impressed
-with the wisdom ot this and left atonco."
Quiet was finally restored and upon in
quiry It was found that Mr. Bailey bad
nothing whatever to do Tilth the runaways.
At the preliminary trial Joshua Gld
dings offered to appear for the accused
men, but was not allowed to do so. Con
gressman Palfrey, a sympathizer wltb
abolition, was present, but took no active
part.
When the trial was held tbe men were
given a fair bearing. Sayres and Dayton

were convicted. Dayton was sentenced to
pay seventy-three times $10 and Sayres
$7,300 fine. In default, they were com
mitted to prison. They were pardoned by
President Fillmore la 18S2.
An iueldcnt that led to much annoyance
was the lauding of a large number of
Wost Indian ants. They lame in the bal
last on some schooners belonging to Land
& Son. then great tobacco dealers. They
were landed on thewharves. at tbe foot of
Frederlek street. It was warm weather,
and they spread rapidly east as far as
rotoaiac. street.
I.VVADED BY ANTS.
The boys of thetown were accustomed to
go along the rock walls that faced some ot
the grounds where the street has been cut
down, and to strike the wall with a stone.
Thcauts wouldcomerunnlugout In immense
numtiers. The boys frequently tl raped
them up by the quart.
When thebusIuessandJnflueneeof George
town began to -none, a plan
early thought of to restore trade
was the construction of the Ches
apeake & Ohio canal. It was in the days
when Andrew Jackson was coming forward
as a popular hero, and had already conic
to be known as "Old Iliekory." The
Chesapeake & Ohio (anal was chnrtere.
and in due course nil was ready to break
ground A day waSCet. proper tcremoiiies
were arranged for, and the outlook was
very promising..
On the appointed day the weather was
fair, nnd a great concourse bad gathered
upon the hills about the point selected
for tbe first earth to be turned. Presi
dent John Qulncy Adams had graciously
consented to throw up tbe Initial spade
full of turf, lie was down for an address
preceding, and made It brief and easy to
understand. He concluded with a refer
ence to the Biblical injunction to Adam to
subdue the earth.
He said on that occasion they were as
sembled -with that purpose, and as a rep
resentative ot tbe wbolo people be would
first exemplify tbe common duty. With
that he gave tbe spade a downward thrust;
but It stopped short an Inch below the sur
face. A. more vigorous stab showed that
ithad struck a root. Some waginthecrowd
sang out in a pretended undertone, "Hickory
Root"
At this the President colored slightly, tnen
threw off his coat and vast, and with a half
dozen -well-directed, powerful strokes, out
the root and upturned the desired spadeful
of earth. His movements were greeted
with rounds ot applause, and his final suc
cess was tbe signal for cheering that lasted
a quarter of an hour.

pected to have a rattling good time. He
"wts accompanied by a friend, and for sev

Doctor likes to fish, but he Is fonder of
kbooting at big game, so hesugseMeiXtohis

One bright morning, well heeled, they
started out- After rambling through woods
and over high mountains, they were about
to return to camp utterly disgusted and
tired out with their fruitless search. Sud
denly, however, they discovered a goodly
sized brown bear. He was sitting on bis
haunches under a huckleberry bu-b. gorg

Both hunters fired, the bear gave an
ugly growl, and disappeared. The hunters
