tore. The six never-to-be-forgotten days
between his arrival and inauuration were
devoted to the perfection of preparations
for the imhpo-inr ceremonial The city
opened its hospitable doors to the enter
tainument of guests from all parts of the
Union. The crush was bewt'dering. Every
public house was filled to its utmost capaci
ty and the prirvat mansions overflowed
New York had lever before housed and fed
a gathering of such magnitude. Every
body tt:uggied for a glimpse of Washing

Peas to dte if they could once behold his
face and the youte duLescriled him as look

from March 4 preceding. The long delay se
suggests miore forcibly the condition of the ir
country at that time than volumes of words
could describe. After eight years of war Et
and six years of domestic strife the coun- C
try had at last decided upon a form of gove- t
ernment, adopted its constitution and
elected its chief officers, and yet these offi
cerm were not installed till nearly two
months after the day appointed. John a
Iangrdon, Prcaldent of the Senate, had km- up
medtiately written Washington an official of
letter informing him of his election, which
Charles Thompson. Secretary of the Conti
nental ('ongres, carried to Mount Vernon,
arriving there April 14. Two days later to
Washington was on his way to New York. ick
The inauguration was delayed for several nei
days by a question which had arisen as to pre
the form or title by which the President- ear
elect was to be addressed, and this had Wa
been deliberated in a committee of both pri
houses. It was finally resolved that the ad- a
dress should be simply ''The President of enn
the United States," without any addition. Th
A National salute ushered in the morning eig
of April 3,. All hublncss was suspended. va
The streets were filled with men and wom- pri
en in hoLiday attire, while constant arrivals dei
from the adjoining country by the common gre
roads and ferry-boats and by packetse which thi
had been all night on the sound or coming ve
down the Hlud'on sweHed the eager throng. me
At nine o'clock the bells pealed merrily an'
from every steeple in the city, then paused; vit
and prmsently in slow, measured tones sum- wim
monu.d the people to the churches "'to lI- and
ile:re the blemsings of Heaven on the Na- I n

At noon the military, marching from Ing

A sou enn silence prevailed when the Vice. was
Presient arose and informed him that all sho
Uhings were prepared gor hLm as tae Lthe I e
oath of office required by the constitutloa.
The oath was administered by the c'han.
cellor of the State of New York in a balcony
in front of the Senate chamber, and in full (
view at an immense audience occupying r
the street, the windows and the roofs of I1
adjacent houses commanding a view of the f
impressive ceremony. • The balcony formed 'c
a kind of open recess, with lofty columnn i
supporting the roof. In the center was " I,
table with a covering of crimson velvet, on v
which lay a superbly-.bound l:ble on a trim. f
son velvet cushion. This was all the jarat- i
phernalia for the august scene. n
All eyes were fxed upon the balcony a

upon his heart, bowed several times, and at
then retreated to a arm-4hair near the w
table. The populace appeared to under
stand that the scene had overcome him. hl
and were hushed at once into profound tr
silence. After a few moments Washitt2ton fa
rose and again came forward. The Vice

Robert H. Livingston, the Chancellor of 1~
State, and somewhat to the rear were Alex. A
ander Hamilton, Roger Sherman, General t;
Knox, General lt Clair, Daroa Steuben and tc

the Senate, held up the Blblq on its crimson th

ceremony was concluded be replied, pol- th
emnly: "I swear; so help me God." Mr. ns
Otia would have raised theBlible to his lips, ill
but he bowed down reverently and kissed it pW
The Chancellor now stepped forward, w
waved his hand and exclaimed: "Long live at
George Washington, PIresidentof the United co
Staeel" At tbhis moment aIaeg was dis- W
played on the cupola t the hfall, the signal m
for a general discharge of artillery on the cs
battery. All the bells in the city rang out a w
joyful peal, and the multitude rent the air M
with acclamation.. or
Washington again bowed to the people Al
and returned into the Senate chamber, Bi
where he delivered to both Houses of Con
gress his inaugural address with a voice ('1
slightly tremulous and so low as to demand siI
close attention on the parewof his listeners. vi
After this he proceeded with the whole as- Ie
semblage on foot to St. Paul's Churchwhere at
prayers suited to the occasion were read by ct
1Rev. Dr. lProvoost, Bishop of the Protestant fo
Episcopal church in New York, and who had _X
been appointed one of the chaplains of cc
Congress The whole day was given over in
to rejoicing and the evening to brilliant as
illuminations and fireworks. hi
Under such circumstances and with such to
a spirit did the immortal Washington enter h"
upon the discharge of his duties as the first el
of a long line of Presidents cl
An EIght Days' Journey. CO
Before setting out on the direct journey TI
to New York, Washington went to Freder- to
Icksburg to bid adieu to his mother, then le
nearly eighty years of age, and, as she then to
predicted, it was their last meeting on
earth. On the morning of April 16, 175. ur
Washington bade adieu to Mount Vernon. to he
private life and domestic felicity, and with hi
a mind oppressed with anxious and painful th
sensations s.'t out for New York with Mr.
Thomson and Colonel llumphreys. He was
eight days on the road, traveling in his pri
-ate carriage, preceded in a stage by his
private secretary. Tobias Lear. It was his
detsire to make the journey privately, but so
great was the en.thusasm all along the line
that this was impossible Indeed, at the
very threshold of his own estate he was
met by a cavalcnde of the citizens of Alex
andria, his neighbors and friends, and In
vted to attend a public dinner in that city.
which invitation he reluctantly accepted,
and whereat he was welcomed by the mayor
in a touching speech From this point on
his trip was a continued ovation Approach
ing Philadelphia he was met by a cavalcade
underthe command of his old companion
!n-armis, General SL Clair, and escorted to
the city. At the crossiung of the ckhuylkill ei
a touching incidtent occurred.t From a tri- de
umphal arch beneath which he passed a
Ifttle girl perched aloft dropped upon his at
head a ci;-tic crown amid the wild huzzaha of f
twenty thousanl assembled to greet him. ev
That night there was a banquet at the "city in
tavern," attended by the State and municipal an
officials, and the city was brilliant with il
Inminations and flrework.. lI
Amilitary escort was to have proceeded th
with Washington to Trenton the next day,
but rain prevented the pageant and he and fo
his suite went alone in a close carriage. W
Thence on through New Jersey he went by fo
the same road over which his little army V
had fled in 1,,i.' At Elizabeth Point he was
received by committees of the two houses
of Congress, Federal, State and municipal
omieals, and a great concourse of citizens.
To carry him acros the bay to New York
City a splendid barge had been prepared,
manned by thirteen master pilota in white,
under command of Commodore James Nich
oleon There were other barges, almost
equnally handaome, for the Congressional
committees and heads of departments, and
private barges fell into line. forming a grand
flotlla that moved acros the beautiful bay .
the oars keeping time to the strains of vocal
mand instrumental music. All the vessels in M
the harbor but one were gayly decked with a
lags and upon some of them parties of t
ladies and gent!emen sung congratulatory
des. The Spanish man-of-war Galveston
alone displayed no token of respect. Sur- At
prise and indignation were finding expres
alon when, in an instant, as the Presidents IC
barge came abreast of her, her yards were
manned as if by magic; every part of her
riggfng displayed flags of all nations, with
the effect, as LMastng says, of an immense
shrub bursting suddenly into gorgeous
bloom, and the roar of thirteen cannon, dis
charged in quick succession, attested the
respect of the Spanish Admiral for the irrt po
President The effect upon the multitude th

The two dead bodies and the remains of
the fifteen burned bodies were brought to

shows that, as far as can be learned,
there was no negligence on the part of
the railway company. The train simply d
jumped the track at a frog.
The engineer and fireman did not jump
because they had no time. They were c
gotten out from under the debris with f
dimculty, and it is miraculous how they
escaped serious injury. The baggage
man and expressman, Jas. Welsh and
Fred Dumas respectively, both of Niagara
Falls, were in the car which jumped over c
the engine, yet neither were hurt.
Seven cars, including one baggage, two
first-class coaches, a smoker, a first-class
day coach and two Wagner sleepers, s
were burned, there being not a vestige of a
wood or anything that would burn left.
One, a baggage, was demolished, and the a
engine was the most complete wreck 0
The loss to the company will be enor- s
mons. Many of those in the train were ti
on their way to New York to take part in
the centennial festiviti*es. Among them
was a part of the Detroit Light Infantry, V
but no one was hurt, except one who got F
aslight cut over his eye. Most all the
passengers lost their baggage, clothing, t
etc., and a large amount of mail matter
was lost by the fire.
There were l11 people on the train be
sides the ten trainmen; of these fonrteen
were in the day coach, thirty-five in one
sleeper, five in another sleeper, and
eleven in a third sleeper, leaving fifty F
persons in the smoker and two coaches.
Thirty or thirty-five of these were in the
smoker. This car and the second bag- a
gage car were telescoped, and took fire
immediately. The wrecking of the tank
cut off the supply of water, and the thirty t
or thirty-five passengers were at the a
mercy of the flames. Of this number
thirteen, as far as can be learned, got out
safely. Two men were killed instantly,
one of them. (. H. Gurly, of Chicago, had
his head taken off and his body thrown
clear off the wreck, and the other, an a
Italian, on his way to Italy, was erushed
to death. b
The remains of from sixteen to eighteen
men were taken out of the wreck an hour I
or two later. They were cut to pieces al- a
most to a man, and burned beyond all F
possibility of recognition. They were
huddled together in a heap in the end of
the smoker, and were pinned in by tim
bers which made it impossible to extri
cate themselves. Nothln could be done
for them on accoupt of the flames. The ii
only way in which it could be ascertained F
that from sixteen to eighteen bodies had 1
been taken out was from the fact that
legs and arms corresponding to about
that nnmber were found. The remains
were taken to the morgue. It will prob- a
ably be days before the dead are identi

gives promise of being pleasant for to- a

streets this afternoon was remarkably
large, Broadway, especially in the lowest
part of the city. was thronged with prom

crowd during the centennial will be the
largest ever seen. The people were ap.
