settle tbe final arrangements for the
funeral. Word was telephoned to the
Fark Commissioners by the Mayor to
begin at once on the work of construct
ing the temporary tomb at tbe Park.
Shortly after the Mayor received Mrs.
Grant's decision, the Board of Aldermen
met and formally presented the site to
the family of General Grant for the pur
pose of a burial spot.
Superintendent of Police Murray was
cummoned to the Mayor's office, and a
consultation was held between the May
or, the Superintendent and General Per
ry, who represented General Hancock,
regarding the arrangements for tbe fun
eral in this city. It was the Mayor's
opinion that tbe procession would start
from the City Hall, the different organ
izations falling into line at the side
streets above. The line of march will
probably be up Broadway to the Boule
vard, and along the latter to One Hun
dred and Tenth street; thence to the
temporary vault In Riverside Park. It is
believed that not until the procession
reaches Fifty-ninth street will all the vari
ous orgaulza tions be In line. Applications
for places In the procession continue to
pour in. It will be impossible to grant
one-tenth of them. Retired army officers
will have a position together in tbe pro
cession. They have been requested to
consult General Sickles, who U under
stood to be tbe senior retired officer in
General Hancock yesterday notified
Commander-in-Chief Burdette ot tbe
G. A. R. that the different posts of tho
G. A. R., who take part In the parade,
will be assigned a place among tbe
mourners. The General has not yet de
cided upon tneir exact location in tbe
line. All armed bodies of troops, In
eluding armed G. A. R. Posts, will be
embraced In tbe escort.
It is understood that 25,000 members
of tbe Grand Army of tbe Republic have
placed themselves at General Hancock's
disposal, with the urgent request that
they may appear in a body on the occa
6ion of the final obsequies in New York
A detail of light artillery has been or
dered here by General Hancock from
Fort Adams, to be used In firing salute
on tbe morning of August 3d and 4th.
Yesterday afternoon tbe most elabor
ate floral piece yet received came. It Is
a large pillow of white immortelles, on
which Is a sword of colored flowers,
crossed by a norai lac simile of the
epaulettes of the GeneraL It Is inscrib
ed "Comrade U. S. Grant From Meade
Post No. 1, G. A. R-, Philadelphia."
Tbe route agreed upon for the transfer
of the body from tbe Grand Central De
pot on tbe 5th, Is as follows: Forty
third street, Fifth avenue, Washiagton
Square, Waverly Place, and Broadway to
