The end came peacefully and quietly f4
while the general lay unconsious, our
rounded by all the members of his family U
mccept Thomas Ewing Oherman, who is at
o on the ocean on his way to this tl
i ntry. There was a slight quiver of
he muscles of the face. The old soldier a
ceased to breath and all was over. Al- e
though all hope had been abandoned for ti
honrs,the shock was great to the mourning v
friends who were at the bedside and for c
many minutes no one left the room. v
They hung over the death bed weeping f
and gazing on the stilled face of oae so a
dear to them. Then young Thomas
Ewing left the house and his appearance, d
even before he spoke a word, was the sig
nal to those who waited without that all
was over. He hastened to the telegraph f
office around the corner, but reporters
were before bite and before he reached it,
news of the General's deatii was spread
ing far and wide over the wires throughb
out the country. Shortly after Secretary I
Barrett reached the telegraph oflice add
sent messages announcing the general's
death to President Harrison, Secretary of
State IBlaine, Secretary of War Proctor, 1
Mrs. Rusk and many others. "He died
like a babe falling asleep," he said,
"there was no suffering, no pain. After
10 o'clock he lay motionless and but very
slight respiration showed that life still
existed. Dr. Alexander was by his bed
side along with members of the family.
Before noontime all had agreed that death
was merely a question of minutes. "Ar
rangements for the funeral," concluded
Mr. Barrett, "are In charge of Gen. H. W.
Slocum. Interment will probably be
made to Calvary cemetery. St. Louis,
where his wife and other members of the
family are interred."
Gens. Slocum, Collis, and Woodward
came from the house and held a short
consultation regarding the arrangements
for the funeral. Gen. Slocum said ar
rangements had not been perfected. He
and (ten. Howard will meet at Gien.
Sherman's late residence at noon tomor
row to arrange all the details. Gen. Col
lis said that a guard would be sent from
Governor's island to take charge of the
remains while they remained in the house.
In speaking of General Sherman's ill
ness, General Collis said that two weeks
ago be had had a conversation with the
general while that gentleman was visit
ing him at his house. of which the sub
ject was the approaching anniversary of
General Grant's birthday, on April 97th.
General Sherman at that time, though in
the best of health, said he would be dead
and to his grave on the day when the cel
e-bration occurred. He told General Col
lis that he had a premonition that while
at a banquet some cold night he would
contract a cold which would carry him
off. This sight into the future is regard
