Colonel Itoger Jones, of General Han
cock's staff, who represents the General In
connection with the funeral arrangements.
Rajs that Governor Hill has concluded not to
come here, but will remain at the Capitol
superlnteniling the arrangements for receiv
ing the remains on tlielr arrival iu Albany.
Under tho Governor's direction the civic as
sociations ami societies vtill lw organUod
Into divisions to each of which a Marshal
will la' assigned.
Colonel Jones has made comoleto arrange
ments for the transportation of the remains
to Albany. As there are only eight cars on
the little narrow gauge railroad between Mt.
McGregor and Saratoga, and their utmost
carrvlng capacity will not accommodate "dlO
persons, there must necessarily Ik) only u
comparatively small escort at Sit. McGregor.
A ele tall of light artillery has lieen or
dered here by General Hancock from Fort
Adams to bo used Iu firing salutes on tho

Yesterday afternoon the most elaborate
tloral plecn yet received canto. It is a largo
pillow of white Immortelles in which Is a
sword of colored flowers crossed by a tloral
fac-simlle of the epattlctte-iif a General. It
Is Inscribed: "Comrade U. S. Grant. From
Meade Post No. 1, (i. A. H., Philadelphia."
It Is learned that lieforo Colonel Fred
Grant went to New York to select a site for
tho General's sepulchre. Mis. Grant re
questeel him to learn the wishes or opin
ions of those with whom he consulted on
tho subject, and If there seemed to lie nin
nimlty In favor of an) sjait which the fami
ly had not considered, to give such Inclina
tion due weight. It Is also known that the
visit lo Watch Hill was not accidental. The
siHit was known to Mrs. Giant, and bad
Ik-cii siaiken of favorably by her, though
the favored locality with all the family was
tho Mall In Central P.uk. When, thtrefore,
the Colonel reiiortcel a general impression
among the city authorities In favor of thu
Itiverslele s'ark, and added bis own satisfac
tion with that site, the decision was quickly
and easily arrited at.
Dr. Newman Is quite earnest In his belief
that the memorial to la' eierted over General
Grant's laaly should not lie conventional nnd
meaningless like the gigantic shaft of the
Washington Monument. He would place
In the temple proiHised by him all of tho
gifts of foreign nations tu the I ite President
and General, and all other treastnes ttblch
have a National interest in connection with
the great hero. There should also lai room
