should bo uni-.y of action. The question
wa3 freely discussed yesterday by promi
nent Democrats of the city and those who
har,pned to be in the city. So far as we
';ouldle8rn,the sentiment was unanimously
in faTor of Hon. Thomas A. Hendricks, of
IrraicHa, who was recently elected Govern

hhrii esteem in which he is held by the
Democracy of tho Union, coupled with his
recent brilliant and successful race in his

A recent isiiie of the New York Lulle
. tin contains an articb on railroad expan
sion, which fumiobes some interesting fig
ures, which are worthy of the thoughtful
attention of the paople. '-It says: "Since
r' ISflO the mileage of our railroads has in
cioased from 30,800 to 53,400 miles. Esti
mating the cost cf this 10,600 miles increase
of .road at $25,000 per mile, it would ap
pear that, within five years, wo have ex
pendjd cn th?so roads about $415,000,000,
or at the rate of $S3,000,000 per annum.
Part of the means for constructing these
roada was derived from abroad; but perhaps
. the belter half was .borrowed at home.
Even $15,000,000 per annum contrib
uted to these works seems a large amount
to be taken out of our annnal accumula
te; s of wealth, and yet, if Mr. David A.
Wills is correct in estimating $540,000,000
as the measure of our annual accnmula-
' tioa of wealth, these railroad investments
- have taken up only some 8 pr cent of our
, yearly savings. In judging whether build
ing of now roads has been overdone, sev
eral matters need to bo tsken luto-account.
In the first place, during the war the con
struction of new lines was almost suspend
ed, the whole length built irom 1S60 to
1801 being only 3,273 mile?, although, dur-,
ing that period, tbero was an increase of'
tho requirements for new roade. In the next
piaee, experience the world over sLows
that it has been only within the last
.. decade that the importance of railroads to
commerce baa been fully appreciated; and
as a-i evidence of this assertion, we may
cite tlis fact tint throughout Europs thero
lias teen since 1SC0 an increase in the
mileage of railroads, immensely exceeding
the progress of population" or the actual
gro.vth of production. To cite the case of
Grc-at Britain, wa Gad that, while popula
tion tbers has been comparatively stationa
ry, th! mileage of railroads has risen from
.10,092 in January, 1S50, to 15,145 in Jan
(uary, 1870, an increase of over 50 pjr
cent.; ana tuls lias occurred in a country
netork of railroads. What the increase

Funeral to Take Place Tuesday
" Sits" Last Day oa EartUi
New Yoek,Nov. 30. The accounts pub
lished of Mr. Greeley's last momonts rep
resent him to have been conscious during
the day. As usual in cases of inflamma
tion of the brain, bis physical suffering was
extremely slight, but the increased, and
morbid action of tho mlna was evident
from exterior manifestations. At half past
five an old family friend known as Auntie
Lawson entered and approached his bed.
Mr. Greeley, then roused by a friend ask
ing, "Do ycu know who this is?" he feebly
said "Yes," sketched up his hand in greet
ing, then relapsed into his reverie. Later
he was asked, "Do you know that you are
dying?" and in the same manner, without
tremor or einotion, he answered "Yes."
Again whsn nsked if he recognized
Mr. Reid, he looked up with imme
diate recognition, lifting his hand, gs&sped
Mr. Reld's and feebly eaid distinctly
"yes." When asked if he wa in pain, he
laid his hand upon his breast, bnt without
otherwise replying and returned to his
semi unconscious state, lying now with
closed eyes and hands, sometimes twitching
nervously, but generally still. At half past
six he stirred uneasily and began to mutter
indistinctly something which friends around
him could not catch; His daughter Ida,
Mr. and Mrs. Stewart, Mr. Carpenter, Dr.
Choata and Auntie Lawson were all in the
room, around to hear the last words. Mr.
Greeley indistinctly murmured for a while
and at last feebly said "It is done."
There was no evidence cf pain in the
last moments; tha face hardly changed,
only settling a little into a look of perfect
peace. Dr. Choate was by the bedside, and
putting his hand to Mr. Greeley's heart)
said, lH.9 is gone." The rem&ins were
(teessed and laid, to await removal, in the
parlor, while a few friends remained to
watch through the night beside him. His
remains will lie at Mr. Choates' house to-day
and to-morrow night they will probably ba
brought to this city. The present intension
is to bury Lim from Dr. Chapln's church
Tuesday, but the programme may bo
changed to suit the desires of such public
bodies as propose to take part in the cere
mony. During tbe day crowds gathered at the
Tribune office ibquiring for the latest news.
Mr. Sinclair at thre9 received a dispatch
announcing tho alarming, condition of the
deceased, and an hour afterwards .one read
ing, "Come immediately or all will be
'over." He then started for Pleasantville,
but did not give to the public the nsws he
had leceived. The crowd romVtned until
eight, when the news of Mr. Greeley's death
- Throughout the dty last night the snb
jeel was the talk a" ha hotels and clubs.
Regret was everywhere expressed. The
Union League whl take appropriate action
to-day, as "will also the Lincoln Club, and
other clubs and associations of which Mr.
Greeley was a member. The flags la the
city are displayed at half mast.
The World editorially pays a high tribute
to Mr. Greeley, and says, that though an
unsparing controversalist, he bore no mal
ice, even in the heat of political conten
tion. Tho Ptotrrcss of HlsIIlp.csw.
In an account narrating at length the
closing days of tho late Mr. Greeley, he is
said during his western tour to have never
slept over four hours at a time. Through
the day he would often doze in the car and
catch snatchss of sleep. Upon his return
to New York his wife was found to be rap
idly failing, and It was white passing sleep
less nights at her bedside that he first began
to show signs of great mental depression.
Cn one occasion while the opposition press
was criticizing his Pittsbu-g speech,
he said, "If they make the issue
that I'm the Recel candidate, I'm bound to
bo defeated." This consideration seemed to
weigh on his mjnd. Often when he sup
posed he was alone, he would pat his hands
to his head and cry out ' Ob," as though
suffering intense pain. At length when his
wife died he began to sbow manifestations
of great grief and it was then he is said to
have shown the first positive evidences of
mental derangement. The November elec
tion stemingly did not interest him. His
defeat did not seem to Emprise him. He
deceived his frl-nds by receiving the news
with perfect indiflarence.

On Nov. 8, one day af.er the printing of lils
famous card, an editorial article appealed
in the 1'ribuiie, headed "Conclusions." It
was simply a summing up of the result of
the elections, in Greeley's old stylo. This
was his last professional eifort. About
this time lie revised live articles which he
had carefully prepared for au encyclopedia.
They ara entitled Abolition; Agriculture;
Anti-ma;onry; Caucus; Confederacy,
Southern the latter baiug his history cf the
American conflict condensed. Oao day
late, while in conversation with a friend, he
became visibly alTected and said, touching
a remark as to his candicdature, I do't
care for politics and wouldn't go on the
cars to Washington to get the commission
as President. What I do feel is the loss of
my wife who has been my companion near
ly forty years. I have watched by her bed
side night and day. Now I am completely
worn out, prostrated from anxiety and want
Hi Political Views.
On Nov. 15, Mr. Greeley was at his
home in Chappaqua, and a prominent Lib
eral Republican from Connecticut visited
hira, and found him in very broken health.
Conversation was had as to the campaign,
air. Greeley manifested much unconcern
on the subject, and to the inquiry whethar
under tbe circumstanc2s it would be bet
ter for the Liberal Republican Committees
to take steps at once toward the mainte
nance and consolidation of their organi
zation or remain quiet and await the turn
of events. Ha very piomptly replied:
"Better keep quiet," but beyoud this there
was nothing to indicate that he felt any In
terest in current even'.s.
About this time ho seemed restless and
haggard in appearance. His family physi
cian" recognized ttio caso as a serious one
and at once resorted to the moat energetic
treatment. At lirst it seemed as though the
malad would yield. Medical treatment
however proved inefficient. On Nov. 20th
it was decided to remove him to the resi
dence of Dr. Choate near Pleasantville.
His removal presented a very affecting
tcjne, aud those who witueised It shed
tears. Thenceforward the developments of
his disease gradually continued.
Ho is said to have died a much poorer
man than Le was popularly thought to be.

are horseless. The mos,. fashionable of
animal complaints his reached and token
possession of our stables, and In proportion
to numbers we can cough as loud, andnm
at tho ncso as profusely as New York or
Nashville the latter though named last,
not one of us who " havo seen the former
believes to bo the least. Our horses are all
blessed with it, our mules catching it a s
fast as thay can, and our oxen ore anxious
to obtain It. To animal flesh it me ins re
pose, and kind treatment, warm blanket?
and good food well prepared, and they
that have It are stoically
proud, aud those few that,
havo it not, sigh for It. Tho turkeys, geese,
ducks aud chickens are as anxious for it as
my lady of fifteen is for a new bonnet, or
my cou In Fitz James is for a moustache.
Wo aro determined that they shall all have
it. Even the stock of tho mountains and
valleys arcu ..d us shall havo this grand
treat, for ia oar generosity we give not only
the good things produced by Chattanooga,
but those imported from abroad to our
friends and neighbors.
By a singular coincidence, yesterday
broucbt un Thanksgiving and tho Tennes
see Press Astoclatldn. We wero some
what pleased with both. A surly person
might say that it was a mm sequitur, that
two such affairs should be brought together
'iiia!MV9 should smila open tbo'Preas and
gobble Thanksgiving nt one and the same
time. But we here, of easy conscience
and cood digestion, can do it. The Mayor,
Dr. Wright, (who as a good physician ought
to know) and Col. Fort, the City Attorney,
eaid we could; Mr. Snyder, our Represen
tative, elect to the Legislature, Bdl Crutch
field, our Representative elect to
Congress, said wo could, and Eb.
James our State Senator elect, proved
that we could, by doing it. Like many
other thin -3 that appear mysterious before
a pes tive test, the thing was simple and
plain enough after it was done.
Th.e observance of the day was general
and sumptuous. Although the day waa
very agreeable the sumptuosity was more
so. The Press Association met In the par
lora of our model hotel, the Stanton House,
at 10 o'clock, and set with closed doors,
thoach probably not in secret session, until
2i o'clock, and after transacting their busi
ness, which was, no doubt, of th9 utmost
importance, adjourned. Soon after, they
weie taken possession of by the city author
ities, Mayor Wight, Col. Fort, City Attor
ney; Mr. Corey, and others, and confronted
with a magnificent feast prepared by tbe
proprietors of the Stanton Houje, whoso
generoos hospitality and whose ability to
"keep hotel" could not be questioned by
Mat. P..iel in his hungriest or merriest
mood. Wo toasted tbem and they toasted
us, and, 63 usual, wo fito and drank hearti
ly. At night an assemblage of the title ap
peared in tho spacious parlors of the SUnton
Houso to hear Mr. Jones, of the Union
and Ajieeican, and of the Association,,
gtvo tlie rest of them seme notes of what he
knew about the publication of nowspapers
as a business. Ha touched them up in a
way that touched aho some of the audi
ence, for I, myself, have had a scheme on
foot bigger 'than Lockout, which I have
Implored the pipers here to take hold of
and put through, and I never could see why
they didn't, till Jones imparted some dim
rays of light on the subject. When I could
make a million by the operation, to see
such Indifference on tho part cf tbe press
passed my comprehension. Jones said I
should pay for it. I will think about.
Then we bad a sparkling poem by Mrs. L.
Virginia French, brimming with humor,
ancf posse.5ing slso that body which lends
to the effervescence of choico wine, that
charming exhilaration and oouuel which
delight and invigorate the mind in litera
ture as the juice of the grape does tho
physique at tbe fast. She delivered it alsv
with all that grace, Qigutty and modesty that
mark the highest type of woman when act
ing in tho-iiigl cr spheres. She was attended
by her younger slstsr, Mrs. Lida. Merriwetb
or, of Memphis, whose pen has won for her,
also, distinction in prose ana poetry second
only to her si-ter, among tho living female
litterateurs of the. South. Both made a
most pleaslcg impression on our people, and
did credit to tbe Press Association, of
which, I believe, they are both honorary
members. The entertainment wa3 conclu
ded by a happy extempore oration by Mr.
Bingham, ot tbe Southern Newspaper
To day we have shown the Association
tho city. Onr railroads are not subject,
and they pervade all our borders. This
morning Mr. J. C. Stanton, Jr., (his father
being absent, and who conducts the busi
iitss of tbe Alabama and Chat! anooga road
In his father's absence,) turned out a train
for the purpose, snd carried the Association
(which are our guests) over the lines of our
city. Mr. Snyder, as cicerone, showed the
members of the press, including Mrs.
French and Mrs. Merriwatber, aud Col.
John H. French, who-h -a brevet member
and a most estimable gentlemm, therad
road car-wheel factory of Messrs. Brum
ley & Evans, who are crowded with orders
but v.l-.o have the energy to ell them all;
and the Roliina Mills and Foundry of tho
Roane Iron Conrauy. This establishment
excited tbe surprise and admiration of tho
Press. When told thai under the manage
ment of Messrs. Rathbone & Chamberlain,
it emioyed SCO skilled laboreis, and turned
ont 00 to 83 tjrs of finished iron work,
railroad iron, etc , per day, some of these
Press representatives opaned thsir eyes as if
they saw a new Chattanooga. And they
did. They understood, perhaps for the first
timi th:it We are Reins atiead with forco
and heat of tho trip-hammer and liaty
furnace. We aho showed them wher
their firebrick come from where and how
they were made.
After Mr. Stanton, Jr , bad compiettu mi
citv excursion, tho naitv was taken possei-
s:on of by Mtj.Geo. C. Conner, of the West
ern and Atlantic road an Irish gentleman,
possessing all the cood humor and ready
wit provermai to nts race, oesiue
a soul as nig as nu person
and generous as he is good-looking who
carried them to tne lair grounas anu .na
tional cemeterv. calling upon Capt. Cook.
tbe United States Military Commander of
the Post. The Major wanted to take tho
party into Georgia, at least as far as Tun
nel Hill, but some of the mora discreet,
looking upon the provisions he had made,
concluded tho majority could notstana ins
trn. AVhereuoon the Association and its
kindly accompanying friends returned to
the Stanton House to another superb din
ner, during wbich all those pledges were
Egaln made, and tho39 bumpers familiar to
such occasions were turned off.
To-nieht a pirt of tbe Representatives tl
tho Press leave us, and a part remain to en
joy the hospitalities of Capt. Cook, at Post
Headquarters, in a nop 01 wnicn i may
