The popular Hntchincons used to
elnp : "There's a good time coming,
bcya, a good time coming," and it
really looks m if that time is closely
approf.ching. Tha Harper party from
the Eait has just bad a hearty ovation
all over the South, end now a South
erner has r.rouaed transports of friend
ship and good feeling in the Eit-t.
The rctwslon was the m;btlng el lio
New England Society, an annual occa
sion for giving utterance to thcss sen
t inctUi of warm patriotism that are
eomr; touts regarded aa an almost ex
c'nsirely Euito.n powssion. Among
the guests was Mr. II. W. Grady,
editor of the Atlanta Contlilutim, aiid
h showed tha Now Knglaud
-anaorably that, this day, as
pure patriotism ai ever
beat in Northern heait, and is sincere
a love lor the Union as their own love
for the country and the country's flag,
xhts in the South, stimulates its en
ergies, oheers its hopes, and steels its
resolution. As the flaw ol genuine
eicquenca reached the ears of the
aodienea, and the glow of enthusiasm
animated Li own countenance, the
co leet spirit among thoie Northerners,
usaa'.ly lets ardant thao onrtelves,
caught the vivifying infliecoe, felt
the impulse of Southern Ore nolntil
allng upon a Southern tongue, and
ringing applause, thrilling and vi
brating with generous emotions, broke
forth unbounded and fervid as if a
touch of the Southern sun had cast its
animating ray upon every object, and
aroused with its eager glow a corre
sponding flame in every heart. Those
men learned from Southern lip that
reverses and trials have aroused among
Sonthsrn people a pitch of dovotion to
;mntry and flag only those can
feel who cams S3 near losing tha old
'an anil atrlnneL Than urn hear fl.
both North and South, that have baen
torn too ruthlessly, aflectlons rent too
remorselessly to forget the bloody
chasm of the put; but tha autumn is
spreading its brown leaves over the
scare of memory, and soon the genera
lion that wis active in the bitterness
of the war and its antecedents will
rest benoath the branches, danuled of
past animosities, while tha young, uu
trained in hate, will a id to the glory
ol the Union the aohlevemants of the
new Smth. To the good time com
ing, tho era of felthful and uodyltg
friendship between Sju'Ji and North,
the vivid oratory of Mr. Gndy has
cmttihuted lu no alight nor unim

in 1812 in the Paine mansion, Bos

lands that became more valuable every
year. At Bohool Paine wus hated for
his mranncs, and though a bright
scholar he was a tloven. He appeared
to care nothing about being shunned,
and kept alona. Later on bis wonder

jmt and sparkling oritirisms in the
Bjston I'ott. lie a'so very eklllfully

he was all this time not dabbling in

lateral of a broker who died in his
debt. He was arrested, end Laban H.
Uooulior, executor of the estate, so
keouly pUMticd him that he brought
him to terme. Paine tock Mr. lloecher
to a large htowa stone houce on Fifth
avonue, where he entered into a finely
furnlubeJ room, dirty, siedy and woe
begone as Painu's babilimenls were.
Hero he acted as one at home without
quuMioo, yet of that grand houee and
his connection with it, absolutely
nothing Is known today. Tains was
rati con t to a wonder, and no one
knows what his affairs were. Here
Paine brought before Mr. lleecher a
lare mass of bonds, and counted out
to him fifty -ell of $1000 each, leaving,
Mr. lieochar believed, $1,000,000 be
hind. So Paine went on, acting the
bjRgnr, sponging where he conld
for food, wearing only such
garments as were given him in
c limit. He mnst have been a miser,
the reader is euro, but here comes a
filiaoge wonder. In 1881 a lodger in
a neighboring room searched Paiue's
truuk, which was never locked, and
carrkd off a misa of bank notes as
thick as two fiets. Paine calmly men
tioned the loss, but never showed a
sign cf grieving after the money, and
could not oven tell how much tbeie
was in tho big roll. Seventeen yesrs

hand a handkerchief with billa in it,
neklng him to keep it in his safe.
There the money ly unsought and
uilr.quirnd after by its owner. After
his death Mr. Cbicksring gave it to
the proper parties. He had never
opened it. It contained 1-100,000.
About the man's person, trunk aud

vast sums were accumulated. (Shoals
got into ths room before friends un
derstood the clroamstasoes, and the
thousands kept there are the prey of
thieves. The heirs claim the $400,

a c'nituant under a will that

Logun with tlOOO, aud sent invitations
to hundreds of Gaa. Logan's friends
and ad miters tbronghout tbe country
asking them to contibuto. The Weit

dered the free uee of its wires icr
trantmitting eubscriptiOD. Tbe ie
sporses are new corning in rapidly,
and $.003 subscriptions have been te
ee'ved from Sanat r Sawyer, the Hon.
Wiiiiam Wa'ter Puelps, John B.
Drake of Chicago, Gov. Alger of
Michigan, George M. Pallma and
0 hers. The receipts in five hcuis
trim tbe time the subscription was

Tbe fjrmal anr.oineement ot the
arrange ment and tbe completion
of too details await! and de
pends upon tlie definite selection by
the tlixao people of a suitable soot
for the to iii b i f the patriot. Mrs.
Logan has expressed a wish that the
place shall be oiie which will cover
sclT.r from tbe ercroitchuiei-ti of com
merce and population. herefers to the
hite of the Douglass moDumnt, which,
when selected, waa remote from popu
lation, is row surrounded by Btoam
railroidi) and dwelling) lioutos, aa an
exjmple of what ahe wishes to avoid.
A suitable spot, Bhe thinks, will be
1 mud near tha entrance to Soula
Mrs. Logan's Feuklon Burial Ar
rauiceuieuta. The Evening Star eays: "Among
members of the Houee who vieited
tbe Capitol yesterday and today the
suggestion was pa sed around that a
liberal pension uhou'd be granted to
the widow of Gem. Login, en I it met
wl h hearty approval on every hand.
Democrats manifested as much eager
ness cs Repabiicars io joiu iu provid
ing for the widow. The hearty .naa
ner in which tbe suggestion ba j been
taken hold of renders it quite certain
that among the flr9t ccta of Congress
will be to pssi a pei sion bill 'or Mrs.
Logan. Icissgrel tbat there would
be eminent propriety in Rranting a
liberal pension, baei upon Gea. L
gau's military services. Some mem
bers are of the or i ion that the pen
sion should bs $5000 per year. This ia
the sum granted to widows of Presi
dents, and though G.tf. Login did not
ocenpy aa cflioe so cxilted us that, he
was tbe recjgniz d head representa
tive of the voluntosr so'diery. It is
hard y probable tbat a pension of
lees than $2500 will b s voted, if thu
expressions of Oongr?simen up in that
subject may be taken as a criterion
wl Ui regard to the porsion As there ia
no civil penrion list tbe proposition
for the relief of Mr. Logan considers
only tbe military servic' S of her hus
band. It is claimed that no violence
wi 1 be done to tti9 letter or the spirit
of i be law in granting her a ponsinn,
as Gjn. Logan was a tufferer up to t i j
death from the effects of his army ex
p riance. In fact, it is esieitad that
the rheumatism, which was the pri
mary ca':83 of his dea'b, waa con
tracted by exposure in the army."
The Houee Funeral Committee 1 as
not been made up. A list of the mem
bers now in the tity was Bent lo Mr?.
L gan for ber to eilect from. Tt has
not yet been returned to tha Speaker.
As soon as tbe list ie returned he will
make a formal anuoancomont of the
Th chairman ship of the Sannte
Committee on Military Affairs, which
Gen. Ixiiisn his held for years, will
probably ro to S 'tator tewed.
Tbe Senate Chamber has been
draped in mourning for Senator Logan,
and the chair so long occupied by thu
latt-r is a niaB cf black.
Tuere is a movemnt on foot to have
the ex Confederate soldiers represent
ed in the funeral procession that will
follow the remains of Sonator Logan.
Many of tbe ex-Cjufederates have ex
praised a desire to participate, and it
ii probable that a piace will be pro
vided for them in the prorea3ion.
During the afternoon telegrams were
received from Chicago throwing a
meisure of doubt upon the arrange
ments tuppo3od to have ben a rendy
practically concluded for the funeral.
The park commissioners telegraphed
tbat after consultation with thoir at
torney they were reluctantly led to
the conclusion tbat they lacked au
thority to set apart a piace for the
burial in the public park, but that au
thority, tbey eay, would doubtless qe
granted st once by the Legislature,
which convenes next week. Iu tbe
meantime the citizens' comuiitteB ot
Chicago snggested o:hor arrangements
which cnuld be perfected witnout de
lay. Upon receipt of tha ab ive men
tioned telegiams it wes decided that
the funeral of Ge'u. Logan will take
place in the ho:ito chamber next Fri
day and thf.t the remains will bs
placed in a vault at Oak Hill cemetery

Early thi- morning a lorg telgr,.m,
