Nw York, Aiib;. 8. At 1 o'clock this
morning Undertaker Merrltt brutlittl the
glaaa plates above Oenerml Oram's IkhIjt and
drew from their places the two lids which
corcr the casket. The four screws In each
were lowered down and the face ol the dead
had ben closed forem from ?lew, uulcss
thero shall In tho luture come from
the family a request to remove tho lids.
Then the dead was left in the
care or tbo eurruls, who stood erect and si
lent within the closed Kates and beneath tho
black drapery. A high floral piece, "The
Oatce AJr," had been placed t tho head of
the casket, and the sweet perfume of lilies
wa borne down to those who stood and
watched; In addition Ihere were great horse
shoes of red and yellow rosebuds, lint
there was one tribute that bore
no fragrance save that which
lltes la Us memories. This was a plain
wreath of oak leaves plnued together with
stems of oak leaves and formed in the shnw
ol the letter "0." The leaves grew on the
oaks In the forest ol Ml. Mcflrrgor and flul
Urtxl in the mountain brcetea while (lent ml
tlrant was dying. The afternoon ot Thursday,
the day ho died, little Julln, his granddaughter,
nd llllle Josie, Dr. Douglam' child, had Rilh
end the oak leaves in the mountain woods.
Tey little knew that tho wreath they
lormed would be the only tribute that would
today touch the general's casket. The little
onet their offering finished, had taken It to
Colonel Grant, whose eyes filled with tears
when his daughter said: "Papa, Josie and I
have made , this lor grandpa, and
please wont you give it to him?" Tho
Colonel placed tbe oaken wreath on tbecaiket
and there it rested In Albany and still re
mains as the children's offering.
Four o'clock bad passed, the gray ol dawn
had deepened to red anu daylight wai near. The
strains of dirge music crept in on the morning
air. At first distant, they drew nearer and
nearer as the red deepened in the east. As
the sunrise was near the strains of music,
slow and fad, grew more distinct. Then the
blur-coated veterans of Meade Post,
of Philadelphia, five hundred strong,
came tramping to the sound of
trumpets. The last waasuffuwd with orange
and the dawn was closer the dawn of the
luneral, day. The veterans entered the
plaza and marched past, white the muflled
drums timed their footsteps'; a heavy gun
boomed out toward the sea. The chimes of
old Trinity pealed mournful notes, and tho
sound ol the muilled drums grew fainter,
then died away.
At C.ao o'clock dipt. A. C. Harry and
men ol the 7 1 ft regiment, went on duty as

100 members of the I.icderkranz Society filed
up the steps pi the City Hall, and led by four
instruments, sang with impressive etlect the
chorus ot "Spirits from over the water," and
tho chorus of "Tho Pilgrims." The
honor guard of regulars filed into

by company A, fifth artillery, under Colonel

Hall were silent. General Qrsnt's last jour

his party emerged from the city building and
entered carriages that had been drawn up in

It was 10 o'clock the police lines wore with

which were uot there the night Iwfotc. The
reviewing stands wero located In all sorts of
places. Nearly every empty stand along the
route bad been gobbled up by spectators.
Some of these were rented out-right, while
others contained numbeied seats to bo had at

Isting fever even got hold ot the
newshots. severs of whom stuck notices In
their chairs to the effect that scats from
which to view the parade could bo procured.
ai nine o clock nroaaway presented an
animated spectacle. As far as the eye could
reach the sidewalks were thronged with
people. Every train and every stenmet
iwured Its load Into the great artery
of trade and travel. Hronzed face's
from the country mingled with white,
faces from the city counting rooms and ofll
ccs and dirty faces from the tenement dis
trict. Hlch and poor, rogue and rascal,
dignitaries and nonentities jostled each other
on the curbstonrs and sidewalks. Kvery
liotly seemed to be good na'ured and look tba
jostling and pushing as a matter of course.
Tho polite tried to keep the people oil the
street, but It was hard work. There were

Madison Square had been astir and sight
seers were traveling up 23d street in a per
fect thiong as early as 7:30 o'clock, when an
onicer on norsebick dashed up to
the ladies' entrauce of the Fifth
Avenue Hotel, and dismounting, took his
stand at the door. The pearl-gray sash de
noting the position of side was across his
breast. The officer was Colonel lit dges, of
General Hancock's slalT. He was followed
shortly by a wild-looking gentleman in uni
form which turned out to lie the marshal
of the presidential and gubernatorial
carriage party, Lieutenant Colonel Gilles
pie. Their presence attracted an enormous
crowd to Ibe draped entrance of Iho hotel on
Twenty-third street and the police were soon
called upon to clear the sidewalk. The
crowd then surged around toward the main
portal of the hotel which shortly became
Impassable. Inside, an Increasing throng of
gold-laced and uniformed men blocked
every hall and corridor. In
Ibe main hall, Oen. Sherman,
lull, erect, and amoking a big cigar, was the
center of an admiring throng. He Blood in
a group or naval oflirers, (batting pleaaanlly
with old friends. The parly were nil in .'nil

the attendants of the Japanese minister en
tered. The big marble hall was comp'etoly
(hocked with humanity long beloru M o'clock.
In lliu hiir parlor upstairs all was stir and
bustle. While the president and cabinet min
isters were at breakfast lu one end of the
nuilding and the Grant family was quietly
preparing for tbo pagtant nt Iho other, the
various organ zttions and delegations were
gathering and getting ready, here, there and
everywhere. lUdges ol military orders
found way for members in the seem
ingly inextricable confusion of swarming
humanity. In a quiet little pirlor
of the ladles' parlor, facing the square, a
group of men, most of whom were gray
haired and old, but nearly all ertct and ol
vigorous physique, were putting on broad
satin badges ol white and black. They were
thn pall bearers. General Sherman, who hod
la-en summoned up Irom bis friendly

toggery, stood in frienJIy conversation
wllh a tall man, whow whito moustache and

hi intention of riding with Secretary liayard.
He was at that time, having finished
his breakfast, quietly conversing in his
parlors. In anticipation of his coming uut
an enormous crowd, which the police found It
difficult to manage, gathered opposite the ho
tel entrance on 2 1 J street and yells of "Here
they cornel" went up every time a delegation
of Grand Army veterans, a gubernatorial
delegation, or a committee of state delegates,
who stopK.-d at the tig hotel apparently in
countless numbers, came out. The Grant

Tho trial of E. 0. Kerahner for forgery,
occupied about two hours time In 'Squire
Stout's court ycslerdsy afternoon. The
principal evidence was that of Mrs. Christina
Cook, and Messrs. George Wallers, Martin
Walters, and Henry lllnkle, all of which was
to tho erect that they had never signed Iho
notes. The teetimotiy of the buyers of the
notes was taken, but developed nothing more
than tho fact that trie wrs had been repre
sented to them as genuine by Kcrshncr and
Ihey had bought them on that understanding.
It became very evident before the trial was
finished that he could never be convicted
of forgery, because there was no testimony to
show that he hlmaelf had written the lorged
signatures. Prosecuting Attorney Weaver
malo out another affidavit while tho last wit
ness waa being examined, charging tho pris
oner with tittering forged paper. He was
discharged on the first charcc. and Immedi
ately rearrested on thesecond. Theevidenco
already given was agreed to by counsel on
both sides. A new trial waa had then and
there, and Kcrshner was bound over to court
in the sum of $300.
