DKCOHATIOX DAY AT M KM I'll IN.
I.uit Monday was decoration day at
Memphis, mulwas In many respects a
marked day. Union soldiers as well n
Confederates united In the demonstra
tion, and the Hag of the Itepubllc was
lloated with that of the Lost Cause over
the grave- of thoe who fell lu the War
IK-tween the States, in its report of the
demonstration the App'ttl says :
It was a great popular upheaval. It
was the bursting ofa pent-up feeling ol
iov and happlnois upon the condition of
me eouuiry, me overflowing oi ui.iuuuit
for the blessings we enjoy of civil and re-
ll-'Ioiis liberty, and a determination to
give uuinUtiikable assurances of loyalty
and fealty to (lie Union. There could be
no mistaking the tenor and drift of It. It
was as strongly apparent hi the speech
of Wright sis In that of Pierre, or lu the
appropriately licautirul poem ol Granger,
Tho Federal went no farther than the
Confederate, and neither saerlllced either
iirmc or dignity, nor stirrentiereii one
lot or tittle of principle. The sonirs and
hvmiis of the Mcudchschus and the
.Ma'niierchor were to the same effect, and
Arnold divided his projrrnmmo eiiunllv
between those who were rivals In broth
erly love. The Union was apparent In
and over all. The battle-Mag of both
armies were placed side by side or In
peaceful embrace, by request, too, of
General Forrest, and the saiuo hand
draped the graves of tho boys In blue
and gray alike. The memory we revive
of the day is this, and ihl Its lesson.
May it endure forever to animate us on
each recurring anniversary strengthening
present resolution mid jonllrinhig us In
our determination to labor hercaller in
and for the Union, to make it more
glorious and free, the lirst among the
nations oi the cartn.

was seated lsham U. llarrl, who was
Governor of Tennessee when the State
seceded, Major Gibson, of ilio lnJled
States army, mid Mlor Jliea, who had
been an ollleer lu the .Southern army.
Next followed what we remember well
as a "relic" of unit helium days, tins hose
carriage ofihc Invincible lire company of
Memphis, within which was organized u
Confederate company, widely known as
the Crocket Hangers. It was decorated
with flower and evergreens, ami from

Then canio Gen. Forrest and escort,
followed by two ensigns, each liearlng
cavalry colors one of the Southern and
the other of tho Northern arm v.

says the Appeal, "here followed, Ixdng :i

one staff, and being draped hi mourning,
attracted the admiration of till who saw
Tho orations were made by a Confeder
ate and a Union mitu and were both elo
quent and In good taste.
Taken all lu all, tho demonstration was
Impodiig, and was a declaration on the
part of Confederates and Union men that
the dead past had been burled and lu the
living present all would live lor the Union
one and indivisible now and forever.

Various theories are advanced as to the
nature ot the explosion, but nothing as
yet Is deilultely known. Tlie most gene
rally accepted Is that it was the ga-gen-erator
hi the cellar that exploded. It Is
asserted, however, there was no nitro
glycerine in the house, and that no otlier
substance could have caused such an In
stantaneous demolition of the building.
The dead body ol dailies M. Frawlev,
book agent, has been taken from the
ruins. Otlier bodies are thought to he
there. There l.s a largo force -still at
work. The ruins are lighted by power
