TUESDAY MORNING t l I.OOTOBIM JO, 18.

The relatives, friendi and acquaintances
are invited to attend her funeral at half past

DEA13I Or THE ONLY DAUGHTER
OF HECBETAltT HEWARD.
It U our painful duty to announce, else
where, the death of Miss Fxixcn A. Siwabd,
the only daughter of Honorable Willijui
II. SnviiiD, Secretary of State.
She has joined her sainted mother, and is at
rest. Her venerable father, her brothers, and
friends who mourn her departure have the
sympathy of all good people throughout the
land. Fjurirr was Mr. Biwakd's youngest
child. Like a good father, he had no "favor
ite child," but tho fact that she was the
youngest of hia family and the only daughter
made the relations between them exceed
ingly tender and close. Iler nature was un
usually affectionate, and she always found in
her father an inexhaustible depth of love
Since the death of her mother, the intensity
of this relation has been constantly increas
ing Death has snapped the cord. With an
intelligent mind, she appreciated properly
and understood well the great questions of
the time and her father's position. The at
tempt to assassinate her father and brother,
and the succeeding events, seriously im
paired her sensitive and delicate constitu
tion. These, with the death of her mother, were
a greater burden than her frail organization
could bear. Truly it may be said that the
assassin's lions passed by the father and son
and fell fatally on the mother and daughter
The country at large is interested in this sad
event, otherwise we might not enter thus the
precincts of private relations. Mr. Sswasd
ha; earned the first place in the hearts of his
countrj men, and whatever affects him they
keenly feel Serving his country at such im
mense sacrifices and with such entire unself
ishness, every scene and event in his life have
come to be regarded as a part of the life of
the Republic. So, as we said In the begin
ning, the sympathies of all good people go
out to meet and mingle with those of his
family and nearest friends. God bless, pre
serve, and sustain Wiluav II. Siwabjd In
this hour of his deep affliction.
THE MIEMDENT AND THE FE.
The New York Tammany Hall committee

Government had already taken measures to
secure full justice for American citizens who
were held as prisoners in Canada, and espe
cially in behalf of those who had been con

Col Dattov, in his letter to Ocn Siifr-
man, Inviting bun to attend the meeting of
the Society of tho Army of Tennessee, m
Cincinnati, Nov. 11, said.
"Your general record during the war and
tho Indelible connection of your name with
the history of the 'Army of the Tennessee,'
will give the members of tho society a double
pleasure in welcoming ou to their reunion,
where no feeling will be known, sate that

In reply, Ucn Sherman wrote:

"Senator Wilson, in his speech at East

States would stand on tho Congressional
amendment, and tho houth uould hate to
adopt it, or staj out of Congress, nnd if they
did adopt it, hewat not to sine tome if them

Tills is a specimen of the Christian charity
and honesty recently "experienced" bj

Tho Davenport (Iowa) Democrat reports
the recent death of Mrs Parks, of Now Or

Maj Gek Fitz Hivxr Warbcn, of Iowa,
trrlrsi In the oltjr last night
MB. NTANTO.X TO. 0 TO HP AM,
AND GBXERAL tMIElMIAir TO
GO isnr THE WAR OFFICE.
The above leading indicates the substance
of several ternfio Washington dispatches
that recently appeared in the New York
Timet. Knowing that they were raero ' fancy
work" we frankly said so. The correspond
ent of the Timet, discovering the error of
his ways, tries to wriggle out of his position
"Ocn SniRMiK is hern. T M fcn wonlil
be. in response to lh Pr.eM.nt'a ronnHi
Just what will be done with him hope to
ct yw w u uuy or ncoi
This Is an astonishing hint. To antlcipato
the astuto correspondent wo will Inform him
what Gen. Sherman will do with himself.
He wdl ko to St. louts in a day or two, and
In about ten days hence, accompanied bv
Gen. Quart, ho will attend tho meeting of
me -society ot tho Army or Tennessee," at
Cincinnati. The Timet correspondent, In
order to break his fall In retreating: from his
silly predictions that Tue Pbuiout was
about to take a subordinate of Gen. Graxt
and "pi"" him In the War Office oier hit
General in-Chief, says :
"Gen Grant would bo a better man for
Acting Secretary of War, when Mr. Stanton
goet out, than Gen. Sherman, and I believe
the latter has very little inclination to accept
the position, though he will comply, of course,
if the President insists"
Just so. Dut Mr. Stanton has not gono
out, nor does The President " insist."
Again: tho astuto Timet correspondent
"Whoever takes it tho War Office is not
likely to hold it beyond the 4th or March
There's wisdom 1 Pray what has tho 4th
of March to do with Oca Grant or Gen.
SnERVAN- if tho Commander in-Chief orders
cither to duty in the War Office f Neither
of tho Generals named needs confirmation.
Who or uhat is this "4th or March" that It
Is set up as a " scare crow " for correspond
It will be recollected that this samo cor
respondent staled that Mr. Btamoic has
asked to be relieved, and requested to be
sent as Minister to Spain, in place of his old
friend, Ex-Senator Hale. Now, this corre
spondent, havingbecomeenlightened through
the columns of the Natioval KtrcBi.iciv,
announces to tho intelligent readers of the
rimes as follows.
"Pertinent to the withdrawal of Secretary
Stanton, I wish to say in justice to him that
me statement mat lie naa expressed a ucsire
to be sent as Minister to Spam, is Incorrect.
It is quite possible that the President intends
to tender him that mission. Bat that he de
sires to go there, or to any other foreign
Court, is a mtttake."
Our readers will perceive that tho cor
respondent inflated a monster bubble, dis
plajcd it beforo the public, and has thus ex
ploded it with his own pen
THE EXGLINn OPERA.
Notwithstanding the heavy rain last even
ing the National Theatre was well filled by
an appreciative, music loving audience to
hear, for the first time this season, the Rich

grand opera of "Mantana " Miss Carouse

thusiastically recched as a time-honored
Washington favorite. MIssZelda Harrison,

proved herself a favorite with the audience
by her charming voice and exquisite execu

howed himself a candidate for popular

applauded Mr. II. C. PsUkis personated

last night was a magnificent success Put

desire to hear these excellent artists to-night
should secure their seats early.
