Old South Church-Eighty Acree of
[Correspondence of toe New York Tribune.]
BOSTON, November ll.
How tbe great fire began will perhaps
always remain a mystery. Tbe first alarm
was given about seven o'clock on Saturday
evening, when tbe flamea were discovered
bursting from the fourth floor of a large five
story granite building on the corner of Klng
aton and Summer streets. The building was
occupied by Tebbetts, Baldwin & Davis, dry
goods1 Jobbers; A. E. YOUD g & Co., manufac?
turers of stays and corsets; and Damon, Tem?
ple & Co., dealers In fancy goods. It stood In
a part of the city which Is as desolate alter
dark as Broad street ls In New York. The
heavy dealers in domestic and foreign dry
gooda had tbelr headquarters near here.
A. T. Stewart's great branch concern was
within a stone's throw. Jordan, Marah A Co.
have (heir wholesale and retail houseB close
by. Jgmes M. Beebe & Co. gave their name
to a splendid block in which they have car?
ried on a magnificent establishment. Nearly
everybody In this district, where there are no J
dwelling houses and lew retail shops, had gone
away for the night, and tbe fire might have
been burning long before lt was discovered.
It la supposed to have caught In the engine
room and crept up the holst way. This 1B a
very probable theory, for in a few moments
from the time lt was first seen, lt was bursting
from every floor in the building. The edifice
waa crowned by that curse of all our cities-a
Mansard roof. Instantly the tinder box orna?
ment was IQ a biaze, and the flame was leap?
ing across the narrow streets to meet similarly
Inflammable roofs on the other side, while
?bowers ol cinders and burning iragments,
borne aloft by the blast created in the hatch?
way, fell noon the lower buildings on either
FATAL SLOWNESS OF THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.
The alarm was promptly sounded, but here
occurred one of those fatal mishaps which
nobody knows exactly bow to account for lt.
It was thirty-six minutes before an engine ar?
rived upon the ground. The Boston Fire De?
partment has tbe reputation ot efficiency, and
she last two days have proved that Its mem?
bers In general are men of the true herolo
stamp, who lace danger and do their duly
silently, and as a matter of course day and
night until they fall to the ground through
sheer exhaustion. Tbe reason given lor the
delay ls that the horses were all pick and the
steamers had to be drawn by hand. Sven so,
the delay was unreasonable. Besides, there
were well horses enough In Boston, and if
hacks aad horse-cars were all running, lt can
only be through grave mismanagement that
?team fire engines co lld not run too. By the
time water was brought to bear, the fire had
become a conflagration. Both sides ol King?
ston street, and both sides of Sum?
mer street were blazing, making two fiery
lanes ID which beat was absolutely insupport?
able. Then the corner building fell, scatter?
ing fife In every direction, and the disaster
. began to assume the most threatening aspect.
AU the engines tn Boston were summoned,
and telegrams were sent for aid from the
neighboring towns. The great height of the
warehouses and the narrowness of the streets
proved serious d lill cul ties, In hardly any case
could a stream ot water be thrown upon the
baot part ol the roofs, and lt was on the roofs
that, alter the first outbreak, the fire almost
Invariably caught; nor was lt possible to ap
?roach In those lanes very near the buildings,
he firemen put up barricades for their pro?
tection, but'the barricades were soon con?
sumed. They carried hose np to tbe roots,
bot the height was so great that very little
water could be forced through them. After a
while some large establishments, supposed to
be m the path of the flames, were blown np.
This did no good.
THE PATH OF THE FIRE.
The flames followed no particular palb.
There was a moderately strong wind, but they
travelled right in the teeth ot lt. They made
tbelr own current of air and tallowed that,
now to one side, now to the other. Wherever
they went .hey found a Mansard roof to feed
upon. Wherever a brand waa shot Into the
air lt had a good chance of falling on a Mac
Bard root. To-day lt ls the com moo belief
that Mansard roofs have cost Boston $250,000, .
OOO. From tbe corner of Summer and Kings?
ton streets the fire travelled simultaneously in
all directions. Southward lt burned about
taifa block. Eastward it took both aldea of
Bummer street, passed Arch, Cuauncey and
Hawley, and thence ran diagonally to
sear the. northeast corner of Summer
and Washington, sparing the corner
building occupied by Bobbins, Apple?
ton St Co.,' ot the American Watch Com
pany,and Andrew C. Mudge, fancy goods, but
taklrkg every thing at the rear and side of lt.
7'0enoe lt ran along the ease side of Washing?
ton street, as far north aa Milk, that Is to say,
within a lew feet ot School. street, tbe Parker
l?ense, the city hall and the Old Corner book
store. On the west side ot Washington street,
nothing was bumed, but many of the shops
were scorched and the glass was nearly all
broken. From Kingston street, east and west,
the fire took both aldeB ol Summer and Bed?
ford streets, aad never stopped until lt reach?
ed the water? destroying the wharves and
depot of the Hartford and Erie Railroad.
Meanwhile it had swept northward along De?
vonshire, Federal and Congress streets toward
the water. There were here some tenement
booses, liquor shops and other buildings
of the poorer c?as?, and before midnight
the wretched occupants were turned in?
to, the street. The general direction of
the flames at this time was north?
west, and from about Congress street to
Washington street lt formed an Impassable
barrier, moving up closer and closer toward
State street, and the great financial centre of
New England. Milk street was destroyed by
ten o'clock, and toward morning tbe Are
reached the rear ot the poe to rh ce, tbe front of
whbh ls on State street. The malls were re?
moved to tbe customhouse, and thence taken
last night to Faneuil Hall, where the distribu?
tion of letters began thia morning, nothing
having been lost. What stopped the flames In
this quarter nobody seems to know. The
buildings were not a whit more substantial
than those which had crumbled to fragments
behind them; but Ibey were not seriously me?
naced until everything elsewhere was a mere
heap ol ruins and ashes, and the firemen were
able to concentrate their efforts here. At any
rafcVfothlDg was Injured except tbe poatofflce
and toe Merchants' Exchange, on the corner
of Washington and Milk streets.
MARVELOUS ESCAPE OF THE OLD BOOTH CHURCH.
Two currents of flame, one sweeping north
from Franklin Btreet, the other westward
along Milk Btreet, encountered one of the
Choicest historical buildings of Boston-the
Old South Church. Sober citizens who had
borne the loss ot tbelr own fortunes without a
word, were seen absolutely iran tlc with dis?
tress as the conflagration approached the ven?
erable pile. It la a medest brick building with
wooden blinds, and lt seemed ImposBsible that
it should escape. But here the fire, which bad
destroyed stone and iron as II they had "been
straw, was strangely stopped. Save for a few
broken windows and a little blistered paint.
the old church ls unhurt. Soldiers are quar?
tered t here to-day, and a battered sale Hes In
Further along on Milk Btreet the fire en?
countered another barrier. This was the new
noQnlsbed postofllce, occupying the block be?
tween Milk, Water, Devonshire and Congress
streets. It was of beautiful granite, with
Iron beams, and had cost thns far $1,600,000.
The roof was not on,-and the floors were not
laid, and there was no woodwork about lt ex?
cept the scaffolding. Tue Milk and Congress
ntreet sides, and a part ot the Water street
iront are ruined by the beat, but tbe building
Itself did not burn, and it prevented the fire
from spreading any further northwestward.
It stands now, however, a conspicuous exam -
pie ol the defects of granite as a building ma?
terial. The stone has crumbled and split like
lime when lt Is slaked. The streets are
heaped with fragments finer than gravel,
workmen are creeping along the cornices
balconies throwing off the pieces wt
threaten to fall. It ls supposed that net
a third of the building will have to ct
down. Opposite, on water street, ls
building of the Post newspaper. That eau
fire, but was not much injured, and ii
there westward Water street ls sale.
Such wa; tbe condition of th i ogs on Sun
morning. It seemed to be then reasons
certain tba: the fire had reached its north
and southern limits, and so the dwelling
the South lind and the banks and various m
eyed Institutions on State street, as well as
bus! ness district beyond, were considered si
There was still an unharmed region, howe\
between Congress and Broad streets, <
along the water which was almost cut off fr
the rest of the city by tbe flames. The ;
now turned back and began to devour tl
All day Sunday and all Sunday night the
sttuotlon went on. Nothing is left exe
some of the wharves, for though lt ls comm
ly said the flames were only stopped by
water, lt ls a tact that they reached the ec
only lr: a few places, and the stories ot the
structlon of shipping are not true. Betw<
twelve and one o'clock, Monday morning
iresh alarm was sounded at the corner
Washington and Summer streets, where a t
rlble explosion of gas threatened for a time
carry the disaster across Washington street
the direction of Music Hall. Hovers'a c
foods establishment, and the two buildings
ordan, Marsh & Co., were menaced by ti
occurrence, but the firemen succeeded, Mi
several hours' hard work, in confining the
si ruction to four or Ave stores, one of whl
was the great Jewelry oiore of Shreve, Crai
& Low. By Sunday noon the Are was said
be under control. By three o'clock this moi
lng lt was entirely checked, and we were al
to consider the losses.
EIGHTY ACRES COMPLETELY DESTROYED.
In the whole district I have described, e
bracing sixty to eighty aces, not a build!:
remains. The devastation ls absolute a
universal. Here and there a totterlog wall
a tall chimney rises above the mass ol' clarie:
blackened with the smoke, but there is n
thing that can be saved in the process of r
building, except bricks and foundation stone
The granite especially, which was the favor!
material in this district, is reduced to dust ai
fragments. Ic will only be fit to grind up f
garden walks. When Chicago was burned tl
fire capriciously spared many edifices la tl
very midst or the ruined district, but it ls n
so D'-re. As far os I can learn everything hi
none as completely as if the whole region ht
been convened loto a furnace.
UNUSUAL VALUE OF THE BUILDINGS DESTROYS:
The buildings thus swept out of existent
In a day were the grandest of their kind I
the United States. In Chicago lhere wer
acres of wretched wooden structures dee
troyed, whose removal was in one sense
benefit to the city; but here the loss has falle
upon the most substantial part of Boston
with the exception of the region over tower
the water, of which I have already spoken
there were no poor quarters in the blackene
waste. The great dry goods houses, woe
houses and leather houses were all here. Po
years past the pride ol Boston business mei
has been the erection of commercial palace
in this district, and, except for the terribl
fault of construction-the use ot bad materia
and the prevailing disorder of Mansard roofs
tbe result has been magnificent There wa
Winthrop Square, with Beebe's splendid build
lng and other structures of the same class
'lhere was Franklin street, with its larnoo
architecture. Tnere were numerous lm
posing blooks along Washington Btreet. O
late years the dry goods Jobbing house
have been gradually moving towoi*
Chelsea, and many of them cooee
qaently escaped this disaster. But the beavj
commission houses, wt loh sell entirely by thi
package, all remained, and all have go m
down, with perhaps one or two exceptions
Pearl street was the chief leather mart of Nev
England, and that, too, Is swept The most o
the wholesale clothing establishments wen
here, and those that have gone employed nc
fewer than ten thousand girls. The grea
wool houses were all in the burnt district and
held enormous quantities ot wool, no leta thai
a million pounds, tor trade bad been dull.
The same thing may be said of the dr]
goods houses, which still held large quantltlei
of unsold winter goods, and had Just taken lt
an extensive summer stook also. Wool, dr]
gooda and leather are the staples of Bostoi
trade. How complete Is the destruction, yoi
may Imagine from the statement made to mi
on good authority this atternoon, that then
remains not one wholesale wool house
not one wholesale establishment li
shoes, or leather, or bides, or hardware, 01
paper; not one type foundry and only om
wholesale crockery warehouse. Printing
houses and periodicals have gone by th<
NEWSPAPERS BURNT OUT-PUBLIC BUILDINGS
Only one dally paper was burned out, and
that was the Transcript which lost Its beauti?
ful new building on Washington street. It hal
gone back to its old qnarters, and appeared
this afternoon a) usual. But about twenty
weekly papers have suffered. The Pilotes
tabliBhment one of the most complete ot the
kind In the United States, comprising a stere?
otyping and book printing house, and occupy?
ing a splendid building, was entirely de
ai roved. Of public buildings besides those 1
have mentioned, there were few except St.
stephen's Episcopal Church and the House ol
Befuge for toe Poor conueoted with lt, and
Trinity Episcopal Church. Perhaps there is
no elly in the world where a fire of the extent
of sixty acres could ruin so many magnificent
concerns. You will gather lrom these state?
ments that while the pecuniary loss bas been
enormous the Individual distress bas been
comparatively light We have had none of
the heartrending scenes that signalized the
Chicago disaster. Perhaps one hundred fami?
lies in all .nave been turned Into the streets,
but there are hospitable doors open to them,
and they will not starve. During the first night
there was, of course, terrible confusion, but not
much disorder. Very Utile property was re?
moved from tbe threatened buildings, because
no conveyances could be hired to take lt.
Most of the horses were sick, and perhaps lt is
well that they were, for ii the narrow streets
had been blocked any more with wagons and
drays, the- disorder would have been frightful.
As lt was the firemen were cramped for room,
and long before the fire bad reached its height
the streets were nearly all Impassable. Few
piles ot goods may Billi be seen on the Com?
mon, and small valuables were often carried
off by hand. I saw one man, lor instance,
goiog off with his wife under one arm and tbe
broken toot of a china vase under the other.
But as a rule, it may be said that the goods In
Blore wera too bulky to be removed, even had
the fire not very soon cut off communication.
The loss, therefore, is In almost all cases a
total one. The circumstances differ from those
of Cnicago in another particular, the direct
loss falling entirely within the City or Boston,
and on the class which ls beet abie to bear lt.
The insurance was chiefly In Boston compa?
nies, for Boston underwriters were always
eager to take risks on the very property wbich
haB been BO suddenly destroyed. How many
of the companies will go down you may esti?
mate irom another dispatch, but even if the
worst anticipations should be realized, the IOBS
la not more than the city can easily endure.
PLUCK OF THE PEOPLE.
The courage ol the people ls magnificent
When I passed through the burning streets at
two o'clock this morning, I lound men who
bad lost everything groping their way through
the lurid smoke, looking for tbe ruins of their
BtorPB to put up placards among the still burn?
ing debris announcing their removal to other
quarters. By daybreak the whole accessable
part ol the district was dotted with extempo?
rized signs. Macullar, Williams & Parker,
who occupied one of We finest of the ruined
stores, where they employed three thousand
hands, began business this morning in the
Mason & Hamlin building. The great dry
goods house of Sargent Brothers caught fire
at 8.30 Saturday night. In half an hour sales?
men were on the way to New York to lay In a
fresh stook of goods, and the firm resume ope?
ratic immediately. Their loss was between
$750,000 and $1,000,000.
These are fair specimens of the spirit which
animates the whole community. The Hart?
ford and Erle Company began to rebuild their
depot to-day, but changed their minde, and
determined to adopt a more elaborate and
costly plan. The merchants are hurrying
about to secure new premises. The city ls be?
ginning to clear the streets. Though the
stones are almost too bot to be handled, Borne
of the obstructed thorougfares are already fit
I for travel.
Better than ail, the citizens and the author
Itlea are gravely considering plans for the Im
provement of the new BoBton, and great ques?
tions oi Are-proof construction which must
new assume such Importance In every city of
the world. The common council are deliber?
ating upon Improvements In the map of the
burned quarter. There ore to be no more
narrow lanes, but broad, straight streets and
open squares, and the owners of the property
are only waiting for the bounderies to be fixed
in order to begin to build.
Such good humor in adversity, such courage
under disaster, such pluck, such enterprise,
and such solid sense, cannot be praised too
too highly. A city whose merchants are made
ot this stuff will soon forget a catastrophe
like an $80,000,000 fire.
The loss has been estimated at all amounts,
from $80,000,000 to $250,000,000. The best
Judges agree to-day upon the smaller of these
figures. But very few vanita have been
reached, and no one can guess bow much
may be recovered from the ruins. I saw four
or five sales opened on Washington and Sum?
mer streets, and In every Instance the books
and papers were reduced to a cinder.
The sub-treasury In the postoffice building
con i ai ned $15,000,000, ail saved. The money
was escorted through State street to-day by
two companies ol marines and a company of
artillery, and the people cheered It as If lt
were their best friend. The postoffice will be
ready to receive and dispatch the malls as
usual alter to-night.

"THE TEMPER OE THE SOUTH."
What Grant's Chief Organ Thinks or
[From the New York Times.]
-How does the South take the election ? ls a
question frequently asked, and which the
Southern papers have, with more or less re?
serve, undertaken, in a number of instances,
to answer. On the whole, their answers are
In the highest.degree encouraging. Without
going Into detail, or quoting at length from
our exohanges, lt may fairly be said that the
tollowlng conclusions are generally accepted:
1. The election Is acknowledged by most ol
even the bitterest opponents of Republican?
ism to be an Irreversible Judgment against the
extreme Southern view of reconstruction. It
ls accepted as a declaration that no Issue on
which parties divide In suoh a way that the
sympathizers with rebellion are on ooe side,
can ever be made again in this country with
any hope that the majority will not be over?
whelmingly against those sympathizers.
2. It is accepted as, on the whole, a good
tempered act on the part of the North, and
not as an act of bitterness or hostility. In?
deed, we doubt If any considerable number oi
persons were ever deluded by the theory so
commonly advanced by "Lloeral" Republi?
cans, that to refuse to restore the Democracy
to power waa au uni'-lend ly act to the South.
3. The conclusion ls almost universal that
the result of the election secures an opportu?
nity for the South to quietly but energetically
devote Itself to ita material Interes?, and im?
poses the duty of doing so without delay, un?
disturbed by any plans or hopes connected
with national politics.
4. It ls generally felt that the large propor?
tion of Southern men, heretofore opposed to
the Republican party, who have taken up the
cause of General Grant, is a strong guarantee
that every honest effort to mako the State
governments pure and efficient will be helped,
as far as possible, at Washington.
On the' whole, lt may be reasonably con?
cluded that the election has removed many
obstacles to; and created many Inducements
for, the thorough tranquillity and steady pro?
gress of the South.

THE FUTURE OF FRANCE.
THE EE8DLTS OF THE WAR AN7> THE
FATE OF THE COUNTRY?
President Thlers'u Message to the As?
the Only Safe Form of Government.
PARIS, November 14.
Thier?, Ia his speech, thanks God for the
reparation and general prosperity of the
country. Referring lo the success of the last
loan, he says the whole available capital of
the commercial world was offered France.
Germany has been paid eight hundred mil?
lions francs of the war indemnity, and she
will receive two hundred millions more in
December. The budget shows a deficiency of
one hundred and thirty-two million francs
for the past fiscal year, but the estimates show
that an equilibrium ot expenditure and reve?
nue will be restored In 1873, and a surplus may
be looked for in 1874. Allusion Is made to
the disasters of the le te war, the cruel dismem?
berment of the country, the frightful less lt
had to bear, and the establishment of the Re?
public. All these thhgs suddenly bursting on
a suppressed and disheartened country, might
have resulted lu Irreparable dlsaiiter if order
bad not been maintained. Appeals are made
to Republicans not to spare even excessive
sacrifices for ?order In their own interests.
Events have given them the Republic, the Re?
public exists as legitimate, and an attempt at
any different form ol government would lead
to the most terrible revolution. The President
deprecates a formal proclamation of the Re?
public by the Assembly. The better policy
would be to impress on tbe Institutions of tbe
country the features of Conservative Repub?
licanism. The Republic must be conserva
live, otherwise lt cannot exist. The absolute
need ol France ls repose. The mass might
live through a few days of agitation. Alter
frightening others it fears itself, and falls Into
the arms of au adventurer, travelling the sad
and humiliating Journey from anarchy to des?
potism, and despotism to anarchy. Toe light?
est fault ls sufficient io wreck the Republic oi
France. Orderly and strong, lt Inspires confi?
dence in foreign povrers, who desire, above
all, a Just equilibrium. France, If she chooses
not to isolate hen,ell, may become sur?
rounded by trusting and useful trlends.
To tbe Assembly in left the lntroduotlon
of constitutional measures. The decisive
moment bas arrived lor the work. The Presi?
dent has promised defence, co-operation aud
devotion. The President concludes by invok?
ing God to bless the work of the Assembly,
and render a complete snd durable consum?
mation. The mesaste was well received by
the Left, to whom it gives great satlslactlon.
The Conservatives moved ine appointment of
a committee to draw up a reply. The motion
was agreed to by a small majority. It Is
thought that the President's message will
lead toan early dissolution of the Assembly.
A MEMORABLE SCENE.
Hie Imposing Funeral of General
[From the Philadelphia Ledger, November 12 ]
The mortal remalnn of General Meade rested
last night at Laurel Hill. They were accom?
panied on the way lo that final borne by such
manifestations ol'public regard as have been
rarely, ii ever, confe rred in Philadelphia on
other men. They wore worthy ol the dead
soldier and citizen, and he was worthy of
them. The funeral procession and all that
pertained to the lune- ral ceremonies were ar?
ranged and carried c ut in exceedingly good
taste by the military und clvlo authorities. The
comrades of the departed hero In their
civic dress; the cherished friends and
official associates of the honored cit?
izen; the long column of soldiers;
the high officers of the army and navy;
the city authorities; i.he Judges of the courts,
ibe Governor of the Slate and toe Governor
eleol; tbe distinguished clUzdua of other
States; the representatives of the city and the
Commonwealth In the National Legislature;
the lleutenant-generil and general-In-chief ot
the army, with thelt suites; the President of
the United Stales; tbs soldiers' orphans (cher?
ished children ot tho dead-of a hundred regi?
ments;) the tattered battle-flags 'Ahe rumbling
caisson, bearing the most precious burden lt
ever bore; the knightly sword, now forever
sheathed; tbe bullet-scarred riderless horse;
these and all the accessories of the sorrowful
procession were In exact harmony with the
tone and feeling cf both participants and
spectators. But Here was another Im?
pressive feature in addition to those pre?
scribed in,the "orders of the day." There
has never ' been lu this city such uni?
versal Interest In ceremonial honors to the
dead. Tne shop w-ts shut, the hum of the
spindle was hushed, the clang of machinery
waa ?tilled, schools, offices and courts were
closed, and the hundreds of thousands ot
usually busy bands in the great city ceased
their labors, while the mau they loved und
honored was being carried to the grave.
From the church where the sc lemo service for
the dead was performed, all the way to the
Park, the streets 'vere thronged by dense
masses, and in the Park, the slopes and
mounds and bluffs were covered by the largest
assemblage ever seen In the city. It was a
grand spectacle. Tie people of Philadelphia
had come out lu mase to pay the tribute of
their unpurchased and nu pureba; able homage
to their Illustrious dead soldier, and to bid
him a final adieu.
Nothing could be more imposing than the
scene presented abo re Fairmount, as observed
from the barge which bore the remains from
the steamboat landing to Laurel HUI. The
civic and military procession was broken Into
sections and dlsplajed in the loreground in
the old park. Above the first bend lu the
river a large body of the military was dis?
played In a long uadulatlng line, extending
from the point near Fairmount to Girard ave?
nue bridge. Bevon 1 these, on every part of
the continuous rising ground from the Coates
Btreet entrance clear np to the bridge, was a
living background o : full a hundred thousand
peoule. Moving slowly and saaly lu front ot'
this'grand spectacle was the shrouded steamer
with its honored burden, saluted by musketry
and cannon; by the uweetly mournlul music of
the choristers on th<* pier; by low dirges from
muffled drums; by the saddened eyes and
Borrowing hearts of a popular assemblage,
unexampled In numbers here. The men and
women who were there will describe the
scene to their childi en for years and years to
come, and the children who were there will
tell oi lt to tbelr children, and future genera?
tions will continuo to hear ot the exalted
honors paid to the d ead General Meade. And
those who come alter us, as well as those who
were there, will understand that the soldier
and citizen who watt accorded such homage,
and who deserved il, must have been a man
strongly entrenched in the affections of the
people-one to who n the country was deeply
indented. These impressive posthumous hon?
ors are but BO ma iy gratelul expressions in
acknowledgment ol that debt. They do not
discbarge lt. How and by whom will lt be
paid, so far as il is possible to pay lt now, ls
yet lor the future to disclose.

A QUEEN'S RAMBLES.
Sketches of Victoria?? Blode of Life at
Nothing can be simpler (writes the correa*
pondent of a Scoth newspaper) than the dally
routine of life at Balmoral Castle, and this bas
always been the rule with her Majesty when
free from trammels ol state. The old servants
at Balmoral will tell yon-speaking of by-gone
days-that in Prince Albert's time Balmoral
was a picture of domestic felicity-"a home
lull o' laughing bairns," "And ah !" said one,
who had been a favorite norse,' ''the Prince
was fond ot bis balrnles, and they doated on
tbelr father. He used to play wiph them in
in the corridor-and sic damn and glee ! The
Queen, looking out ot her. room, would stand
and watch them with a smile. on ber
lace. And when the fhn grew boisterous, she
would raise ber linger with a gentle bush
but the mltber's heart was wi* them." The
Prince ls everywhere held in loving remem?
brance. Eer Majesty's habits are very sim?
ple. About seven she pr?par?e for rising,
breakfasts at nine; after breakfast she bas ber
di*patches to look after, for even In her moun?
tain retreat the Queen's "mind ls ta'en up wi'
the things o' , tbe State." Then follows private
correspondence, a heavy item In the Queen's
list ot duties. .Two special messengers con?
vey the dispatches to London, one to relieve
the other, as they travel day and night.
Luncheon is at two o'clock, and in the
alternoon the Queen usually takes an air?
ing In her carriage. On the lawn in
front of the castle a picturesque white
tent stands, and her Majesty passes
much of ber time In that snug little corner.
During meals the Queen's piper plays in front
or the windows. Of pipers tnetre are several,
I believe; Rosa, the Queen's piper, Is ohlef,
and lt ls a sight to see tne handsome old High?
lander in full costume, marohing proudly to
time as be plays a pibroch. The ''pipers" are
a sight of themselves, with their rich velvet
mountings and gay streamers, and royal ban?
ner floatlog In the breeze. The Queen dineB
at ball-past eight; her own table ls spread In
the library. Since the Prince Consort's death
ber Majesty has not made personal use of the
dlnlug room; the ladles and gentlemen of the
court dine tbere. It ls one of a suite of
magnificent apartments, ali o? which are
carpeted with Stuart tartan, the hangings and
draperies belog Victoria tartan. The orna?
menta tn the rooms are all Scottish in their
tendency. The library, which is the inner?
most apartment In the suite, ls a cosy, com?
fortable room, small by comparison with the
others, and lt has a look of brightness with Its
glittering books and cheery fire, and snow
white taole-cloth and twinkling tapers. There
Is no ostentatious display, however, in the
royal sanctum. The arrangements of tbe
room are of the simplest character,^ ven to the
dinner table. A very select party dines with
lier Majesty, not even tbe Princess Beatrice,
unless on an extra occasion. Tbe Queen spends
much of ber time alone in Prince Albert's
room. She comes quietly In to dinner, with
her knitting In her band, and retires early. It
ls well known that her Majesty is a woman of
method, and were lt oinerwlae she could
never get through the amount of work she
does. She ls very fond of tne open air, and In
all weather she ls to be seen abroad. A rainy
day does not keep her within doors:
in her waterproof and umbrella she defies
the elements. It 1B quite a common occur?
rence to see her walking In the grounds
under a drizzling ralo. The weather, In fact,
has no influence upon the royal programme.
So far as concerns her Majesty's "constitu?
tional airings," a good Btout umbrella carries
her bravely through pelting rain or powdering
snowdrifts, whether on foot or seated In ber
open carriage, or trotting on ber highland
pony. But there can be no doubt our Queen
ls a bardy woman; at least she han no ''fine
lady landes" In the matter of constitutional
delicacy. She does not bother with super?
fluous wrappings when she laces the "snell
mounialn breeza; she dresses consistently
with the climate and the weather, and a fresh,
comely, sensible-looking lady she is in ber
comfortable plain Jacket and broad-brimmed
straw hat. The Queen's walks and drives are
noe confined wltnln her own policies; she
crosses the Dee almost dally, and ls quite ae
often Been on the opposite side ol the
river. She always uses an open carriage, but
not always the same. Sometimes lt is a
wagonette, sometimes a low pony phaeton.
No guard of honor accompanies the royal
equipage, however. Her trusty attendant,
John Brown, sits on the box beside the coach?
man, and when there ls not room for bim
there, he rides on horseback by the side of the
carriage. No lusa attends the queen. An
outrider a little In advance of the royal car?
riage clears the road, and the queen goes
quietly on her'way with a smile and atiod for
any one who chances to meet ber. But as a
rule her Majesty is not intruded upon when
she ventures beyond the royal domains, unless
on Sundav, and then lt ls strangers only who
run alter*her. Thexoltagers do not annoy
her, and she comes and goes without molesta?
tion. Indeed, they make a point of keeping
out of the way when the white horse ot the
outrider appears in sight. Should the Queen,
however, happen to come unexpectedly on
her subjects by Deeside, she ls deferentially
acknowledged. The Queen and her ladles fre
qronily p?enlo in the woods, or on the hillside,
si. Ud lt be bandier. Materials to make-a fire
and cooking utensils are taken in the carriage,
and tea ls made on the green sward and handed
round in rusti? fashion without any ceremony.
At these afternoon teas the Queen bas no
special chair of honor. Her seat is pretty
often on the clump of a tree, with ber cup In
her hand, or any other casual resting place
that turns up conveniently. Excursions are
made also to various places of Interest, and
every corrie and glen within reach has been
visited br the royal family.
