BULWEB'S LAST POEM.
There Is no death! The stars go down To rlae upon soius fairer shore, And bright iu bearen's jeweled crown They shine foreveruiore. , There Is no death ! The dust we tread Shall cbautfe beneath the summer Mhower, 10 Kmueu grain, or nmllow fruit, Or rainbow tiuted flower. The (tranlte rocks disorganize To feed the tiHugiug iumm they bear; The forest trees drink daily life From uut the viewless air. There Is no death! The leaves may fall, The flowers may radeand pass away They only wait through wintry hours For coming of the May. There Is no death! An angel form Walks o'er the earth with silent tread; He bears our beet loved things away, And then we call them dead. He leaves our hearts all desolate; He plucks our fairest, sweetest Mowers; Transplanted Into bliss they now Adorn Immortal bowers. The bird-like voice, whose joyous notes Made glad these scenes of sin and strife, Sings uow an everlasting song Amidst the trees of life. And when he finds a smile too bright, Or heart too pare for taint or vice, He hears it to that world of light To dwell in paradise. Born Into that undying life, They leave us but to come again; With joy we welcome them the same, Except in sin and pain. And ever near us, though unseen, The dear immortal spirits tread, For all she boundless universe Is life '.here are no dead. WHY 1 JOINED THE DE TECTIVES. I was sitting in a car on a Wisconsin railroad, one day years ago, when a good-looking, pleasant-spoken man came along and stopped at my seat. Now I am regarded as a social man. I like a joke; more so then than now. On entering a railroad car I always looked about for a talkative man, and then got as close to him as possible and drained him dry, if the journey was long enough. And I want to state one thing more: Left an orphan before I could realize the sad event which made me one, I got kicked here and cuffel there and grew up between the folds as they say. I ought to have had at the time of which I write a pretty thorough know ledge of human nature, and have been enabled to read evil in a man's face if he intended me evil. I did not pride myself on being sharp, but the knock ing around among strangers ought to have given any one a good ex perience. Well, the stranger and I fell into an easy train of conversation as we rode together, and in ten minutes 1 began to enjoy his company. He was a well made fellow, linely dressed, and wore a line watch and a simon-pure diamond ring. I never saw a man who could talk so easy and so. pleasantly. It seemed that he had but to open hU mouth and the words fell right out. I had travelled in the south; so had he; I had heard the roar of the Pacific; he knew all about it. I had been up in a balloon down in a mine, been blown up, smashed up and repaired again and again; my friend had exper ienced all these things,and was wish ing for something of a more startling nature. We agreed on politics,neither had any religion, and 1 had never met such a railroad companion. Did you ever meet a man, though a stranger to you ten minutes before, could wrest from you secrets that you had sworn not to reveal ? Well he was such a man. It was not -long before he commenced asking me questions. He did not seem trying to quiz or draw me out, but he asked me questions in such a sly, roundabout way that before I knew it I was giving him my history. I was just at that time on the point of being admitted to the bar of Wis consin as a student of Law & Law, of Briefville. The firm were old lawyers with a lucrative pratice, and it had been talked over that in about a month I should be the 'Co' of the Am. A year before, a farmer named Preston, down about four miles from Grafton, died, and his matters had been put in the hands of Law & Law for settle ment. Preston had died rich. He had money in bank, railroad stock and mortgages, &c., and everything was settled up to the satisfaction of the re lict and fatherless. About a year before his death, being pinched for money, and not wishing to sell anything at a sacri lice, Preston had given a mortgage on his own farm for three thousand dollars. While the papers read 'for one year from date,' there was a verbal agreement that it should be lifted any day that Preston desired. A month after, when, hav ing the funds to clear off the paper, old money bags' refused to dis charge, wishing to secure his interest for a year. I was on my way to learn the date of expiration. A Are among our office papers had destroyed the memoran dum, and I must go down and get the date from old Scrip, who lived south of Grafton, about five miles. The strang er pumped this all out of me in about ten minutes, and yet I never once sus pected he was receiving any informa tion. I am not positive,' I added, 'but 1 am pretty sure the time is the 13th, which would be Tuesday next.' And then your folks will send you down the monev and discharge the mortgage, of course ?' he queried. Oh, yes, I shall most likely bring it down.' 1 replied, and it never occured to me how imprudent I was. He turned the conversation into oth er channels, and did not attempt to pump me further. We got to Grafton at half-past ten, and to my surprise ho announced that he was to stop in town on business for a few days had not asked his name or avocation, while he knew everything about DM We went to the hotel, had dinner, and then I secured a livery team and drove out. rotting through with bus iness so that 1 was back to the three o'clock express east. My friend was on the porch of the hotel as I drove up carrying tne Banie Honest uigniueu face. Well did you find out?' he inquired tai a pleasant way. Yes, it was on the 13th, as I expect ed.' I replied. We took lunch together, and when we shook hands and parted i naa no more idea of ever meeting him again than I had of knowinir you. In fact The Owosso Times VOL. III. he told me he should sail for England within a week or ten days, and should not return to America. At parting he gave me his card. It was a modest piece of pasteboard, and bore the name of 'George Raleigh,' in old English script. very tin nor at tiic 0O06 went on as usual.and the 13th came at length. Law fc Law had arranged with me to pro down with the money, and I looked up on it as a business of special impor tance. 'We know you are all right,' remark ed the senior partner, as I was about to go; but I want to crive you a word of warnlncr, nevertheless. Don't take any strangers into your conlidence un til you have passed out the money, and look who sits next to you. It was something new for him to caution me, and 1 could not but wond er at it; but in the bustle of getting aboard the train I forgot what he said. Ordinary prudence had induced me to place the money, which was all in bank bills and divided into three pack- , under my shirt and next to my skin, where the deft hand of a pick pocket could not reach. Interested in a newspaper, t ime tlew by as the train tlew past, and at length the hoarse voice of a brakoman warn ed me that I had reached Grafton. I leaped down and was making for a liv ery stable, when I heard a familiar voice, and I looked up to see ltaleigh. He was seated in a buggy, and had seemingly waited for me to come in. 'Don't express your surprise,' he be gan, a3 I stopped at the wheel. '1 did ntend to go away. I changed my mind, and like this section so well that I am going out to-day to look at a farm with a view of purchasing come, ride up to the hotel. We rode up. ordered lunch, and while we were discussing it, Mr Hal eigh discovered that the farm he was going to see was just beyond that of old Grip's. How fortunate! I could ride out with him, see the farm, return in his com pany, and he was pleased. I "was also pleased. If any man had told me as we got into the buggy that ltaleigh meant to return with my mon ey in his pocket, and my blood upon his hands, I should have called him a lunatic. And yet George Raleigh had planned to do that very thing. It was a lovely day in June, and the cool breeze and the sight of mead ows and groves made my heart grow larger. My companion was very talka tive, but he didn't even hint at my er rand. He talked as far away as he could. Oh! excuse me!' he exclaimed, after we kad passed beyond the village, and were among the farm houses. 'I should have offered you this before.' He drew from his pocket a small tlask of wine and handed it to me. Now, I was temperate in regard to drinks. In fact, I detested the sight and smell of anything intoxicating. But I had not the moral courage to tell him so, and hand him back the Mask indisturbed. I feared to offend him. ind so 1 drank perhaps three good swallows. He called my attention to the woods on the left, as he received back the lhisk, and when I looked again he was just removing it from his mouth, as it he had drank Hearty. In about live minutes 1 began to feel queer, rne lence anu roau seemeu to grow higher and the trees grow laager; something came to my ears that the attle of the buggy wheels sounded a long way off. How strange! Why, I believe I am going to be sick!' I exclaimed, holding on the seat with all my might. You do look strange, he replied, a snaky smile stealing over his face. I wouldn t wonder it it was apoplexy.' I did not suspect the game he had played. His words were like an echo, and his lace seemed twice as large as it was. My head began to spin, and my brain began to snap and crack, and was terribly frightened. You are badly off,' he continued, looking into my face. 'I will drive fast as possible and get a doctor. My tongue was so heavy that l could not reply. I clutched the seat, shut my eyes, and he put his horse at best pace. We met a farmer's team, and I can remember that one of the occupants of the wagon called out to know what ailed the man. ltaleigh did not reply, but urged his horse forward. About three miles from Grafton was a long stretch of forest, and this was soon reached. The pain in my head was not so violent, and I was not so badly affected when opening my eyes I had settled into a sort of dumb stup or, with a brain so benumea umi i had to say to myself: 'This is a tree that is a stump,' etc., before I could make sure I was not wrong. Half a mile down the road after we struck the forest, and then ltaleigh tin ned the horse into a path leading hack into the woods. I could not understand what he intended. I tried to grapple with the question, but could not solve it. Well here we are!' exclaimed Hal eigh, when he had reached a point for ty rods from the main road. He stopped the horse, got out and hitched him, and then came round to the wheel. 'You don't feel just right, but guess you will be better soon,' he r( marked. 'Come, let uiehefpyoudou n lie reached up his arms, and I let cro the seat fthd fell into them. It HHM to me as if 1 weighed a ton but lie carried me along without ai effort, and laid me down within about a rod of a fence which ran along on one side of an old pasture. The effects of the drugs were wearing off, and 1 got a faint suspicion that something unusual had happened. But I was OWOSSO, powerless to move a limb; the sensa tion was like that when your foot goes to sleep. Can you speak?' inquired Raleigh, bending over me. 'Because if you can it will save me some trouble. I want to know just where you have stored away that money. Now I began to realize my situation. His face looked natural again, and the load was off mv tongue. I also felt that I could move my fingers a little. 'George ltaleigh! are you going to rob me'r" I asked, finding my voice at last. 'Well, some folks might call it rob bing,' but we dress up the term a little by calling it the only correct finanical way of equalizing the floating curren cy, so that each one is provided ior, and no one left without. You shan't have the money; I will die first!' I yelled, rising a little. 'Ah, 1 see didn't take quite enough,' he cooly remarked 'Well, I have pro vided for this.' He went to the buggy, procured ropes and a gag, and kneeled down beside me. I had but little strength left, and he conquered me in a moment. Lying on my right side, looking to ward the fence, he tied my hands be hind me and then forced the gag into my mouth. There now! You see you are nic- ly llxed up. and all because you acted like a fool, instead of a sensible young lawyer soon to be i dmitted to the bar.' While he was speaking indeed while he was tying me, I had caught sight of the white face of a little girl looking at us from between the rails ot the fence. IJcould see her great blue eyes and knew she was frightened. There were red stains around her moHth and on the little hand resting on the rail, and I knew that she was a farmer's child searching for strawberries. I could not warn her of her danger, and I feared that she would be seen or heard. While Raleigh was tyir g the last knot, I winked at the little girl as I could, hoping that she would move iway but she did not go. Well, now for the money! said Ral- leigh, and he began searching my pock ets. He went from one to another, re moving all the s? rticles, felt down my bootleg, and then finally pressed his hand over my bosom and found the money. Ha! here it is! he exclaimed, draw ing out the packages. 'I don't hardly beleive that old Grip will see any of this to-day.' He sat down near my head, undid the packages, and was cool enough to go at it to count the money. As he com menced the little girl waved her hand it me. My heart went thumping, tor I expected that she would utter a word or shout, but she sank down from sight and 1 caught a gleam of her frock as she passed through a gate. You see, my young friend,' remark ed Raleigh, as he drew off one of his boots and deposited some of the bills n it, 'there s nothing like transacting business as it should be transacted. Some men would have shot or stabbed you, but it's only apprentices who do such work. All the real gentlemen ot our calling do business as gentlemen should.' He drew off the other boot, and placed some 'fifties' and 'twenties' in it, and then continued: I have it all planned out how to deal with you as soon as I get this money disposed of around my person. I shall lay you on your back and pour the balance of the wine down your throat. There's enough of it to make you sleep until tomorrow night, and by that time I shall be hundreds ot miles away. As soon as I see the drug take effect I shall untie your hands and re move the gag. When you come out of your sleep if you ever do you had better crawl out to the road, where you will most likely meet some travel er soon. I want to use the horse and buggy, otherwise I would leave them for you.' How coolly he talked. lie treated the matter as if it were a regular tran saction in which I fully acquiesced. He had me a fast prisoner, and I felt that he could do just as he pleased. While I was thinking, I saw the little white face appear between the rails again, but in a moment it failed away and its place was taken by the sunburned phiz of a farmer. He looked from me to Raleigh and back again, and I winked at him in a way which he readily under stood. His face disappeared ,and I felt that I should be saved. No, ld Grip won't get his tin to-day, mused ltaleigh, storing away the bills In his pockets. You will go back to Law & Law feeling put up and cut up, but they couldn't blame you; it is not your fault at all. True, had you mind ed vour business on the car and not been so free with a stranger, this would not have happened. 1 was on my way to Milwaukee, aud bad no thought of such rich pickings here. I saw nothing of the farmer. Ral- eiarh llnished his counting and I made up my mind that the farmer was afraid to interfere and had run away. My heart went down as Raleigh got u p for I saw that he was about to carry out his plan. for further drugging me. He turned me on my back, sat down astride of me, and then pulled the Mask. Now, in just about a minute we will lie Ihrough with the buslnens, lie re marked, trying to put the mouth of the Mask between my jaw. ' I roiled niy head to one Bide, and he did not succeed. He was just j iimning the Mask against ray teeth, when I caught the sound of a soft step, the crash of a club, and Raleigh rolled off my body. He tried to leap up, but three or four farmers struck him down, and one of the blows rendered DUB senseless, liefore he came to 1 was MICH., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1881. free of ropes and gags, and we had him securely bound. Over beyond the pasture, where a farmer and his hands were raking hay, Little Blue Eyes,' only eight years old, had wandered oif after strawberries, and had fortunately for me, witnessed a part of Raleigh's proceedings. She hurried back to her father and told him that 'a man was all tied up out there.' Understanding the situation, he and his men moved around so as to secure an advantage, and Raleigh's cap ture was the result. When the rascal found his senses he was terribly taken back, and cursed for a whole Flanders army. We took him to Grafton, and when I saw him again he was on his way to the penitentiary to serve a sentence of fifteen years. The mortgage was duly lifted, and the gift which Law & Law sent Katy Grey kept her in dresses for many a year. For myself, I felt so humiliated at having fallen into the rascal's trap, and so wrathy at the treatment, that I de termined to devote myself to a thor ough warfare on rogues. I therefore joined the detective force, and, after due study, took my place as a full-Hedged detective. THE NATION MOURNS. The reports of President Garfield's condition during Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th caused the greatest anx iety and apprehension. On Monday the frequently recurring rigors rapid ly exhausted his remaining vitality and it was evident early in the day that he could not long survive. His pulse rose rapidly and was so weak that at times it could not be counted. Shortly before 10:30 on Monday evening 18th the physi cians were nastny summoned and the story of the last moments is told in the following bulletin: Eluekon, September 19. 1881, ll:dO p.m. The President died at 10:35 p.m. After the bulletin was issued at 5:d0 this evening tlie President continued in much the same condition as during the afternoon, the pulse varying from 102 to 10b, with rather increased force and volume. After taking nourish ment he fell into a quiet sleep. About thirty-live minutes before his death, and while asleep, his pulse rose to 12U and was somewhat more feeble. At ten minutes after 10 o'clock he awoke, complaining of a severe pain over the region ot the heart and almost mediately became unconscious, inl and ceased Lo breathe. D. W. BLISS, FRANK H. HAMILTON. D. HAYES AGNEW. At the time of his death he was at tended by his devoted wife, and the faithful attendants that have sur rounded him during his struggle for life. During the day his mind had wandered, and when he was conscious he appeared to realize thaf. he was rapidly losing the little strength left. Immediately after the President's leath the cabinet were summoned to Francklyn cottage. All were in at tendance except Secretaries Blaine and Lincoln who bail not yet arrived. Af ter consultation the following ofiicial notification was sent to Vice-President Arthur: It becomes our painful duty to in form you of the death or President larfield ann to advise you to take the oath of office without delay. If it con- airs with your judgment, will be very glad if you will come here on the ear liest train to-morrow morning. (Signed) WILLIAM WINPOM, Secretary of the Treasury. W. H. HUNT, Secretary of the Navy. THOMVSL. JAMES, Postma8ter-(ieneral. WAYNE McVEAHH, Attorney General. S. J. KIRKWOOD, Secretary of the Interior. Other government officials, the members of President Garfield s fam ily and others were at once notified. Gen. Arthur was at his home in New York City, and when the news of the President's death reached him he re fused to believe it until he received the notification from the cabinet, when he gave vent to his feelings, and for some time sat with his lace buried in his hands. District Attorney Rollins and Elihu Root were in his com- oanv. and after a consultation the resident justices of the N. Y. su preme court were hastily summoned. Chief Justice Brady was first to arrive elosely followed by Justice Douohue The oath of office was administered and Chester A. Arthur became President of the United States. The news of the death of President Garfield cast a gloom over the whole country. It cannot be said to have leen unexpected, but the nation nas re fused to despair so long as there was life. James A. Garfield was born at Orange, Ohio, Nov. 19, 1831. His early struggles and his later triumphs are familiar to every American citizen. Entering Williams College in 1854 he graduated with high honors and re turned to his native state where he was engaged in educational pursuits until he completed a course of law studies when he was admitted to the bar. Ear ly in the war he enlisted in the army leaving it in Dec. 1868 at the request of President Lincoln to take the seat in Congress to which he had been elected while in the field. l i ving continually from that time with great distinction, in 1880 he was elected to succeed Allen G. Thurman in the U. 8. Senate, but being nomi nated and elected as President he resigned his seat in the senate before his term commenced. His administra tion of the Presidential office promised to be remarkable in the degree of satis faction that it gave the whole country and, its eminent practical success. The story of his assassination on July 2 and of the desperate struggle for life that has been kept up for 79 days are known to all our readers. A strong constitution and an indomitable will sustained him through sufferings that would have brought death long since to most. The aged mother of the deceased President received the sadiutelligence of her son's death the day before her 80th anniversary. She was inconsola ble and expressed the belief that she would follow him before the year clos ed. The Army and Navy have been no tified of the nation's loss and of the ac cession of President Arthur by gener al orders, and Secretary Blaine has DC tilled the representatives of the govern ment at foreign courts. On Tuesday morning President Arthur arrived at Elberon, where he was met by the Cab inet. After a consultation he paid a visit of condolence to Mrs. Garfield and returned to New York. The following bulletin gives full particulars of the autopsy on the body of the late Presi dent: Long Branch, September 20. By previous arrangement a post mortem examination of the body of President Garfield was made this afternoon in the presence and with the assistance of Drs. Hamilton, Agnew, liliss, Uarnes, Woodward, Reyburn, Andrew H. Smith of Elberon, and Acting Assistant Sur geon D. S. Lamb of the army medical museum, Washington. The operation was performed by Dr. Lamb. It was found that the ball, after fracturing the right eleventh rib, had passed through the spinal column in front of the spinal canal, fracturing the body of the first lumbar vertebra, driving a number of small fragments of bone in to the adjacent soft parts and lodging just below the pancreas, about two inches and a half to the left of the spine and behind the peritonium, where it had become completely en cysted. The immediate cause of death was secondary hemorrhage from one of the mesenteric arteries adjoining the track of the ball, and blood rupturing the peritonium and nearly a pint escaping in the ba- dominal cavity. This hemorhage is believed to have been the cause of the severe pain in the lower part of the cheat complained of just before death. An abcess cavity six inches by four in dimensions was found in the vicinity of the gall bladder, between the liver and the traverse colon, which were strong ly inter-adherent. It did not involve the substanee of the liver, and no com munication was found between it and the wound along the suppurating chan nel, which extended from the external wound between the loin muscles and the right kidney, almost to the right groin. This channel, now known to be due to the burrowing of pus from the wound, was supposed during life to have been the track of the ball. On examination of the organs of the chest evidences of severe bronchitis were found on both sides, with broncho pneumonia of the lower portions of the right lung, and though to a much less extent of the left. The lungs contain ed no abcesses and the heart no clots. The liver was enlarged and fatty, but free from abcesses; nor were any found in any other organ except the left kid ney, which contained near the surface a small abcess, about one-third of an inch in diameter. In reviewing the history of the case in connection with the autopsy, it is quite evident that the different suppurating surfaces, and es pecially the fractured spongy tissue of the vertebra, furnish sufiicient expla nation of the septic condition which existed.

LORD MAYOR OF LONDON Words cannot express the deep sym pathy I feel with you. May God sup port and comfort you as He alone can THE QUEEN, Balmoral. Gov. Jerome has iseued the follow ing proclamation. Exj a tivk Office, ) Lansing, September 20, 1881. The President of the United States lies dead at Long Branch, stricken by the hand of a brainless and depraved assassin. The hopes which gathered about his succession to the high olhce so suddenly and awfully vacated, have been shattered at the beginning of his work. The great career in which he had illustrated beyond almost any of his countrymen the grand oport unities of American citizenship has ended in its summer brightness, and the old NO. 20. lesson is again impressed upon the hearts of mankind that "the paths of glory lead but to the grave." The last twenty-five years have tested the character of our people and the temper of our institutions in varied and tried emergencies. Never hitherto has the faith of those who trust in a popular government abated. Nor will their hopes be disappointed now. The framers of the Constitution foresaw in their wisdom the possibility of contin- S;encies like the present, and provided or them. Every good citizen will join in rendering instant and cheerful aquies- cence in the constitutional succession, which there is no reason to doubt has fallen into safe and patriotic hands And however grievously the sympathies and affections of the people have been wounded by this dreadful calamity, they will not fail to remember the ex ample of the illustrious man for whom the nation is in mourning, when he re minded his countrymen sixteen years ago, while sorrowing under a like affliction and in more perilous times, that "though the President is dead, the government lives." It is fitting and proper that the ob servances which are due to the mem ory of the departed ruler, and which will testify to the universal and affec tionate esteem entertained toward his person and character, should be accom panied also by an acknowledgment of our dependence upon Almighty God, whose protecting hand has s signally guarded us in other trials and by invo cation of His future favor. I recommend, therefore, to the peo ple of Michigan that on the day ap pointed for the interment of the re mains of the late President in their final resting place at his old home in Ohio, they assemble in their respective places of worship, and in the manner and through the forms to which they are accustomed, place themselves anew under the Divine protection, and im plore God's continued kindness toward this nation. I recommend also that on the same day business pursuits be sus pended generally throughout the State. In testimony whereof, I have here unto set my hand and caused the great seal of the State to be hereunto affixed at Lansing, this 20th day of September, 1881. DAVID H. JEROME, Governor. By the Governor: Wm. Jenney, Secretary of State. A second proclamation by the gover nor definitely designated Monday 20th as a legal fast day. In accordance with arrangements be fore announced the body of the late President was removed from Elberon to Washington on Wednesday. The black cloth covered casket was sur mounted by a silver plate with this in scription: James Abram Garfield, born sso- vember 9, 1831. Died President of the United States, September 19, 1881." At half past nine Chief Justice Waite, the cabinet and a few personal friends arrived at the cottage which was then closed to the multitude who were still on the line awaiting an opportunity to view the face of the dead President. The simple funeral services were con ducted by Rev. Chas. J. Young, of Long Branch. At their close the body was removed to the heavily draped funeral train that stood upon the tem porary track awaiting it. The State officers of New Jersey were in attend- HsOt as a guard of honor. As soon as tbe members of the party had taken their places upon the train it moved slowly away, stopping a little beyond Elberon stut ion where stood a special ira n from New 1 ork bearing President Arthur and ex-President Grant, who boarded the funeral train and it proceeded. From the start to the end of the jour ney a multitude observed its progress, standing with bowed and uncovered heads until it passed. The track was often strewn with (lowers for long dis tances and sombre drapery was every where to be seen. Arriving at Washington an immense concourse awaited its arrival. Mrs. Garfield was at once driven to the res idence of Attorney General McVeagh. The body of the late President was borne to the hearse on the shoulders of a detachment of artillerymen and the procession took its way to the capital, moving in the following order: Platoon of mounted police. Gen. Ayres and mounted stun". Wiifdiiugton Light Infantry and band. Union veteran corps. National Riflen. Washington Light (Juard. Capital City Ouaril. United States Marine Baud and Drum Corps of fifty iwn. A detachment of Unite! States mariues. Second United States Artillery Band. Four com nnn leu or heavy artillery and one h' iii nailery. Washington and Columbia Commanderiee of Kntgnis lemsiar. Then followed the hearse, Hanked on either side by a single column of army aud navy otlicers. President Arthur s carriage followed immediately after the hearse. During the removal from the cars to the hearse and again as the body was Liken from the hearse into the rotunda of the capitol, the Marine band played "Nearer Mv God to l liee. Alter the casket was placed upon the catafalque, the President, Ex-President Grant and others of the party viewed it, after which the public were admitted and all through the night continued to pass the throng not appearing to abate. Forty members of the Army of the Cumberland acted as a guaid of honor Up to 0.30 p. m., Thursday, an im mense throng entered the rotunda at the capitol and viewed the face of the dead president at the rate of 4,000 ai hour. At that time it became noces sary to close the casket and the elegant floral tribute from Queen Victoria was placed upon it. The people were sadly disappointed but continued in slightly lessened numbers to pass the casket. Letters of sympathy from the Pope and from many foreign rulers have been received, and Secretary Blaine has directed our minister at St. .I:iine.s, to give Mini response to the hundreds Of official and private expressions from Kngland At 11 a. m. Friday the rotunda was closed to visitors and soon after Mrs. Garfield and a few friends entered and remained for a few minutes. Prepara tions were then made for the funeral services which took place at 3 o'clock. None were admitted except by ticket, and the hall was densely crowded by the officers of the Govemment, the Su preme court, the diplomatic corps, the senators and representatives and the household of the late President. As President Arthur entered all arose and when again seated the services were opened with praver by ltev. Dr. Ran kin. President Garfield's pastor, Bev. J. D. Powers, delivered a feeling address and ltev. J. G. Butler closed the ser vices with prayer. The body was then removed to the hearse, the only lloral decoration ac companying it being the wreath from Queen Victoria. All the other lloral decorations were sent to Mentor by re quest of Mrs. Garfield. The funeral procession proceeded to the depot and the same train used in the trip from Long Branch started with its precious freightage and its mournful passengers on the journey to Cleveland at 5:16 p.m. where it arrived at 1.17 p. m.
