GRANT FIREWORKS; THE RECEPTION,
THE BALL AND SUPPER A LARGE CROWD
AND A MOST INTERESTING OCCASION.
Well, General Grant ha3 been here,
nnd all that is left us is the memory of
a memorable day in Cairo.
Complying with the. request of the com
mittee of arrangements, as expressed
through The Bulletin, our citizens dec
orated their homes and business houses
with flags and streamers, giving tlie city a
gala day appearance.
THE IN-POURING MULTITUDE.
At an early hour in the morning visitors
from neighboring localities commeuced ar
riving, the number of arrivals increasing as
the day advanced. The first considerable
quota was contributed by the Cairo and St.
Louis railroad. These arrivals were chiefly
from Murphysboro and points intermediate.
Shortly after oue o'clock p. m. the Cairo
and Vinccnnes special train came in from
Mt. Carmcl, bringing as many us seven or
eight hundred persons. A half hour later
the Illinois Central excursion train from
Centralia, numbering sixteen coaches, ar
rived with the largest crowd brought iu
during the day estimated at twelve hun
dred. On this train arrived the Normal
cadets, from Curbondalc, under the
command of Col. (Spencer, and
the Jonesboro National Guards, un
der the command of Captain , the
two companies numbering about sixty
men, all of them well uniformed aud
equipped und under good discipline. By
steamer, by the Iron Mountain and South
ern, by the ferryboat Three States, and in
carriages and on horse back, great streams
of people continued to pour ia Uutil ahout
2 o'clock, when the signal gun announced
the departure of
GENERAL GRANT AND PARTY,
under the escort of the committee of ar
rangements from Bird's Point, at which
point they had arrived, only a few minutes
before on a special train from Little Rock.
Meanwhile the Rough and Ready nnd
Delta City fire companies, the Normal
Cadets aud Jonesboro Guards had formed
iu line ou Fourth street, the right resting
on the Ohio levee, aud the various civic
societies among the colored people on
While Jthe transit steamer Junius S.
Morgan, with Geueral Grant and party on
board, was steaming by the city,
A NATIONAL SALUTE
was fired, under the management of Mr,
Charles Mehner, who had his gun planted
near the junction of the levees. The ring
hig report of the canaou brought the great
throng lit at had dispersed itself throughout
the city, to the wharf, so that when the
pecial car containing the General and suit,
came down Levee street from the "incline,"
the crowd was so dense that it was with
ditliculty that the several marshals and po
licemen prepared a clear route for its pas
s'ige. GENERAL GRANT REACHES THE CITY.
The General occupied a standing position
ou the rear platform of his car, sandwiched
by three or four members of the commit
tee of arrangements. As the car slowly
passed along the levee the immense crowd
closed up closely behind, aud tallowed it to
its stopping point, tit the I. C. R. R. depot.
That the eifoit to raise a cheer was
A DISMAL FAILURE,
was not because the people were not en
thused by the sight of the "Great Captain,"
for the jam nnd rush about tjio car strongly
betukencd the contrary. At no time dur
ing the afternoon, indeed, did the crowd
betray a hearty, willing yelling mood.
To the carriages in waiting at the depot
tt.e Geueral nnd party (including Airs.
Grant and two other ladies) were at once
ESCORTED I1Y THE COMMITTEE
of arrangements, (VI. Taylor und Mr. Her
man Meyer taking seats in the carriage
with General Grant, and Dr. C. W. Dunning
occupying a sent in the carriage with the
CARRIAGES IN WAITING
Were also filled with the remaining mem
bers of the committee, with the city author
ities and distinguished strangers all of
them soon gaining their proper places iu the
procession. In very short order, then,' the
LINE WAS FORMED
In accordance with the previously arranged
programme, and led by the excellent street
furnished by the
(OMIO.UE AND HELTA HANDS,
commenced moving up the levee, varying
the route that had been indicated iu this
only, that the march was extended beyond
Fourteenth to Twentieth street. Shortly
after!) o'clock the procession reached
THE TENTH STREET MUSIC STAND
(which had been appropriately decorated)
and joining there the great throng
that had preceded them, formed a multi
tude of six or eight thousand people. Gen
eral Grant being cscorteu to the stand was
welcomed in the name of the city, by
HIS HONOR, MAYOR Til ISTI.KWOOM,
who spoke ns follows:
OiN. Gii vM';
The high honor devolves upon me of
bidding you a welcome to the city of Cairo.
We welcome you as u distinguished citizen
of our country; we welcome you as one of
tiie greatest military chieftains the world
has ever produced. Wo welcome you for
tin service you have rendered your country
aud the distinction you have oonferrod
upon our state. We wulcomo you us the
representative of the volunteer soldier cle-
mcut, which has produced some ot the best
generals und the finest armies in the world
. ... i i.. .i... I.:.. i i i
UI lilies jiusauaauiK iu iiiu loyoesi uegrey
those great soldierly qualities courage and
endurance, perseverance aud magnanimity.
I ieel taut it would not be uu extrava
gant assertion, tor me to say that the
armies and tlie soiaiers wuicli you huve
commanded, rank second to none; and
when I say that, I would detract nothing
from the valor, the courage- of those who
fought on the other side of the line, tor we
mush uceord ; them the same great quali
ties. But I feel that we are all oue now.
The great fact that we are a nation; that
we are one nation und one peoplu has been
established ; und your reputation ns a citi
zen, as a statesman and us a great warrior,
does not belong to Illiuois, or to the North,
but to the whole country.
We have watched witli pride the distinc
tions that have been shown you by t'le peo
ple of the old world. We have been de
lighted with the miuiuer in which you have
been received by our sister cities of the
South; with the magnificent receptions
that have been tendered you everywhere;
and situated, as we are, in the midst of the
great valley of the Mississippi, at the con
fluence of two of the mightiest rivers of the
world key to the great northwest, just as
you pass the threshold of our beloved state
and of yours the great state of Illinois
that our municipality is too limited, and
we would fain bid you welcome for them
We thank you lor this visit, and hope
your stay with us will be pleasant and
I again bid you welcome-thrice welcome
to our city.
Concluding his well expressed welcome,
the mayor then announced that
.fl'DOE W. H. GREEN
would bid our distinguished visitor wel
come to Cairo, iu behalf of our citizens.
Judge Given advancing to the sidu of Geu
eral Grant, spoke as follows:
General Grant: I urn commissioned
by the people of Cairo to tender to yon a
very hearty welcome to our city and its
We cordially join iu the universal chorus
of admiration and respect, which has
greeted you in all lands, iu all climes,
among all nations, wherever you have trav
eled. Tuecrowued heads, the nobility, and the
people of Europe; the kings and princes of
the oriental world; and your countrymen
everywhere, have united iu according to
tou the highest consideration und esteem.
In the same spirit this multitude of your
fellow citizens has assembled tj render a
proper tribute to him, who stands first iu
the long catalogue of veterans who totight
for a united country.
But your visit to this city has an addi
tional interest, not realized elsewherej Your
presence in our midst awakens a crowd ot
associations connected with the part you
acted iu the opening scenes of the great
military drama of the nineteenth century.
Iu Cairo you began the arduous task of
converting the citizen into the soldier.
Here, uuder your care, a crowd of raw re
cruits took ou the torm and comeliness of a
well drilled army. Here you planned the
first campaigns, which resulted in deci.ive
victories to the Union urms. From this
city you lx gan your march to that scries
of military triumphs, which is unequalled
in the annals ot ancient or modern military
life. On three sides of you was the ene
my's country. A few miles below
the confluence of these great rivers
a frowning fortress dominated the
stream with its guns; and from its heights
floated a dag which boldly proclaimed re
bellion against the government. The
morning drum-beat in your cam;) was
echoed "by the sullen sound ot the enemy's
guns; und tlu evening, tattoo was answered
by the roar of hostile cannon. When your
little army was marshalled on yonder h-vee,
ready to leave us. and march to vh tory, it
was almost literally true that
"Cannon to riuht o f them
t'SUDUti to left of theui.
t'auaou iu front of taeni.
Volley'dauJ thai, l.-r'd"
But tO-day how complete the
transformation! These tidek-s seas
tliat iilmost encircle our city
still pour their waters onward to the great
ocetitl, and still bear upon their currents
countless vessels of every size. But the
stores of the commissary, then covering
their decks, have given pl.ice t the wares
of the merchant und tlie produce of the
planter. The gunboat is converted into th
irnin barge. The military transport, la
den with armed men and the munitions
of war, is seen uo more; and iu its stead,
the passenger steamer, crowded with peace
ful men and women from every state, plies
undisturbed, a welcome visitor, trom the ex
treme North to the extreme South. The
frowning fortress is dismantled; aim. c;;id
in the verdure of early Spring, it nowsiuiies
on the mighty river that washes its
base, and is oue of the strong links
that bind together this uow happy
sisterhood .of states. Two rival flags
no longer court the morning breeze, or
wave over contending ho.-ts. These then
warvtng states are no lunger belligerei t. but
dwell together in the harmony of perfect
equality, und in the consciousness ot safety
und protection to their governments, both
state und national; while the Hag of the
Union floats, without a rival, over every
foot of the soil of the Republic.
Sir, the verdict of mankind attributes to
you, more than to any otlier.the accomplish
ment of these benellceut and auspicious re
sults. You left this city with ymr sword drawn
in your country's cause. I'liu buttles you
fought I he victories you won the splen
did" achievements, und the utill more splen
did and important consequences of
your campaigns, are household
words und need) not be recounted
here to-day. You return to us with your
sword long since sheathed. The object und
purpose for which your sword was drawn
have been accomplished. Alexander, utid
Cicsar, and Napoleon, each fought for per
hoiuI iiggnidizentent and to establish a dy
nasty. You fought to preserve a united
country. You bore the toil and encounter
ed tlie danger of battled and of sieges, in
order that the grand heritage, which we re
ceived from the fathers of the republic,
might be transmitted far down the ages to
thti coming getieratioiu. And ho fighting,
you fought in a holy war!
In unison witli your countrymen every
where wo welcome you ns an illustrious cil
ii'ti of the United States. We welcome you at
the threshold of this great and powerful
stuto the state which rendered such signal
service iu overthrowing the rebellion your
own state the state of your adoption ; and
we also feel a just pride iu greeting you as
1 1 10 first citizen of the state ot Illinois.
Your name, in all time, will be especially
connected with the idea of the union of the
states. And we believe you could ask no
more glorious immortality of famo than to
huve.your memory, in all patriotic hearts,
ludissolubly linked with the sentiment-
"the Constitution und the Union, one and
inseparable now and forever."
I give voice to this vast assemblage of
nnxious listeners when I again extend to
you a most cordial welcome to our city.
The judge was frequently npplauded, os
he deserved to be. Gen. Grant then ad
vanced to the railing of the stand, and fac
ing the eager thousands, addressed them,
substantially as follows:
generm, grant's speech.
"When last 1 was with you, my friends,
your little city was a camp of bristling
bayonets. You are now in the full enjoy
ment of the pursuits of peace, a thrifty,
promising little city.
Of late I have traveled over a considera
ble bit of the south, have visited many
parts of several states, and everywhere I
saw the same signs of devotion to the re
stored Union I see here to-day. I met men
who had held high positions in the rebel
army,' hien wlio served in the confederate
congress ami legislatures and men occupy
ing high social und ollieial positions umoug
their fellow citizens, und one and all of them
expressed themselves satisfied with the re
sults, und in no wise felt inclined to at
tempt to disturb them. I believe that these
men spoke the truth, and I hope they rep
resent the masses. I have reason for be
lieving in their honesty, and that
we have now a pelmatic:).
Union nnd one that will last forever. Ev
erywhere I saw due resp.-ct shown for the
old lla, and heard a wiilingness expressed
on all sides, to li- irtiiy and patriotic illy
unite with the North in defending it ig iin-t
any assaults from abroad, let tin".:', come
from whatever quarter they may. But I
have already said more than I expected to
say on this occasion, having been led there
to by the remarks of the gentlemen who
have preceded me. I will uow close by
thanking you for your very kind reception.
General Grant concluding his remarks a
number of his old acquaintances came up
on the stand and shook hands with liim
heartily. lie then indicated a desire for a
little rest, aud resuming hi? seat in the
carriage, was driven to the palatial

were gratified. It is entirely safe to say
that the General took by the hand as many

A pastime that soon became monotonous,
but which the distinguished gentleman' en
dured with all the fortitude of a hero. A
large proportion of those who attended this
reception perhaps one-fourth was of col

THE UAtL IN THIS K EN I No
Successfully as the programme? ;f the
day had been curried out, and gratifying as
were the lesults, of our efforts to do honor
to our illustrious guest, the grand climax
was reuched, the cap-sheaf of all the suc
cesses was that provided in the ball and
supper in the St. Charles Hotel.
The achievements of Mrs. C. W. Brad
ley in devising and constructing the center
piece of the ball room adornments, furnish
most convincing proof of that lady's tatse
and handicraft in that line of effort. From
the foit roomers of the room, leading to the
center.were graceful festoons of evergreens,
all converging to an evergreen horso-shoc,
within the points of which were wrought
with artistic tuste, the initials of our
cniincnt visitor. This horse shoe, the
symbol of good fortune with
its appropriate acceompniiiuieiits, were
the wotk of Mrs. Bradley. The other
decorations, Including the well devised
mottoes of "Cairo Welcomes her Country's
Hero;" "Statesman," "Soldier," etc. thesu
were the products of the good taste and In
dustrious rfl'ort of Mrs. Robertson, Airs.
Will Robblns and Miss Daisy Robbius, oil
of them residents of our city.
About 10 o'clock the ball
room was well filled by
ladies and gentlemen who had been in
vited to participate, many of them being
residents of Mound City, Anna, Jonesboro,
Carbondale, Murphysboro, Centralia and
other portions of Illinois, and of tlie neigh
boring towns of Missouri and Kentucky. To
hold details in ubeyuncc, we cun safely say
that the ladies were richly and elegantly
dressed, even beyond the times and coun
try. The gentlemen we would compliment,
too, but for our indisposition to add an
iota to their already over-weening vanity.
General Grant was, ot course, the central
figure, during the evening, and received the
attentions our people know so well how to
bestow. Of the progress of the dance we
need say nothing. We have indicated the
character of the participants, and it is a
sluggish mind that cannot imagine the bal
ance. This, however, we will say, that
much of the success of the grand occasiou
is due to tin- efficient efforts and tireless in
dustry of Mat Fulton, Arnold Lippett,
Capt. Shields, Philander Barclay, C. W.
Bradley, B. F. Blake and Henry Wells,
whom the general committee of arrange
ments wisely selected as floor managers.
The music the best ever heard iu a Cairo
bull room, was furnished under the direc
tion of Professors Eisenberg and Goss, who
were ably assisted by the following gentle
men all citizens of Cairo: Lee Boicourt,

Have you ever taken an electro-vapor

That this bath i c mdueivc to health is
