Decoration or Soldier** Grave*. Comrade* of the tented field. Who with life your fealty sealed. We have gathered here to yield Homage to the brave. Gift;* we bring from peaceful hours, Tributes to heroic powers; Garlands of sweet summer flowers For each honored grave. Comrades of the troubled days When the battle’s torch ablaze, Mirrored on each saddened gaze Helpless wrecks of War l While our hearts with anguish bleed O’er the sorrows then decreed. Here we bless each noble deed,— AU thou struggled for. Peaceful be your sacred sleep! While we o’er your ashes weep, We reuew the ’pledge to keep Laurels for the brave. Far beyond the bounds of pain. K’en the humblest hero slain, Glorified shall rise again, Victor o’er the grave! The interesting and beautiful memorial ser vice of decorating with flowers the graves of Etoldicrs in the cemeteries in this city, was performed yesterday under the direction of the Capital Guards, the newly organized mili tary company. A profusion of flowers was provided by the ladies who have labored with assiduity to make the floral offering one befit ting the occasion. Some of the graves were most elaborately and tastily decorated, the friends of the deceased having provided spec ial offerings of flowers. There were exquisite bouquets, wreaths and crosses formed from the many-colored flowers that adorn at the present time the beautiful gardens in our city. No grave was neglected. Those who filled un known graves were remembered. However tbs cure the mound, it was not passed by. Though «ievcr hallowed by the tears of near ind dear friends, the sweet incense of flowers Biade each humble mound an altar of praise. The Capital Guards, after collecting the flowers, marched from their headquarters to Mt. Pleasant cemetery, where a stand had be en erected for the speake'rs. The ranks of the company were quite full, and under the Command of Capt. E F. Wyman, proceeded without music to the cemetery. The magni ficent weather and the solemn and interesting lervices had brought out a large multitude of people, some of those present coming miles With their families to witness or take part in llie ceremonies. The Band from the Military Asylum, appeared in a neat uniform, and fur nished some fine music for the occasion. Hon. J. T. Woodward, from the committee of arrangements, called upon comrades and friends to assist in the beautiful and solemn Service for which they had assembled at the closing hours of the sacred day. After music hv the Band, a fervent prayer was offered by Rev. Mr. Martin ot this city. A hymn of Peace was sung by the congre gation, led by a select choir. An address was then made by Rev. Mr. Penney of this city. He said that the hour we spend here is sacred to the memory of ;hose who gave their lives a sacrifice to their country. The flowers we scatter speak more strongly than words in remembrance of the dead who rest here. There is a voice that comes to ns e^er from these silent resting places. Although dead, they yet speak to as—speak to us as friend speaks to friend. They speak of the past, and bring hark to nemory hours of deliverance, when these men vent forth to battle for country and tor God. [)h 1 how we remember those days, that seem ed to us like a lung procession marching to :he grave. But they speak to us farther; hey tell us that to give life for liberty and the ruth is glorious and Godlike; that it is bet er to sacrifice than to enjoy; better to rest icre a sacrifice to a united and happy coun ;ry, than to live in ease and luxury in a coun ry rent and sundered. They thus speak to is noble words, that call us away from selfish tnds and purposes. Every grave which we leek to-day rebukes him whose sole object is fieasure, wealth or fame. They tell us to trize highly what has been secured at so great t cost. Because they died our nation ives to-day, and we stand upon a higher >lane of civilization than ever before. I'hc land is marked all over by the finger of Jod, teaching us that rebellion is ruin to hose who engage in it. If we would be true o the memory of those we honor to-day, wc hall seek to hold inviolate the principles vhich they gave their lives to perpetuate. _,et God be honored. Let the ballot become he emblem of truth and justice, and the prin :iples of right permeate every department of he government. In this light the future ises up grandly before us. These graves speak to us of suffering, sac •ificc and death endured for high and holy mrposes—lives laid down for the lives of alters. Ilow do they suggest to the mind lint who lived our pattern and died our sac ifice. How does this day and this service emind us of the stone rolled away and the mpty tomb. Let us not forget to render to lint the tribute of grateful hearts. The hymn was sung commencing “Nearer, my Hod, to thee !” Rev. Mr. Moor of this city, was the next pcaker. He said the soldiers in memory of horn these services are rendered, need them ot. They have finished their work and en ered upon their eternal destiny. The flowers •9 scatter are not as sweet as the incense? of icir lives. The flags we place upon their raves show that they are inarching on to ietory. The monuments that have been or lay be raised will crumble to dust, before ley shall be forgotten, or their influence ■use to bless mankind. Every true service eneflti those wtio perform it, and we may be tade better by engaging in the present ser ice. Every flower we give starts new flow rs of life in the heart. They quicken the eart and clear the vision. So while we con ecrate anew these graves by these beautiful flerings, let us consecrate our hearts and ives to the country suved to us by heroes’ lood. Here in this cemetery, at the capital f the Pine Tree State, a monument should lie rectcd to those men and the cause for which ley died. But more than monuments of stone re the monuments of true patriotic and hristian deeds. These we should seek to rcct in all our hearts. Rev. Mr. Kelley, Chaplain of the National [ilitarv Asylum at Togus, was called for, and lokc eloquently of the great wars that had een waged for purposes of military heroism, ime or renown; but that the war in which ur martyred heroes were engaged was one >r Liberty. These men formed a solid wall f flesh und steel against the onward march f despotism, and all the interests of humun y were involved in the struggle. These flowers which we lay upon their graves will Aide, but the laurels which they w *n will he ' forever green. The chairman here announced that the Rev. 1 Dr. Kicker was necessarily absent from the , city, and could therefore take no part in the | exercises. The choir and congregation then ung “My country, ’tis of thee,” after which the graves were decorated. This service having been accomplished, the Guards | and friends returned to the stand and the benediction was pronounced by Re'. Mr. Up j john of this city, which closed the exercises : of the day. Tlie services throughout were simple and | impressive. No attempt at display was made, j hut, on the contrary, all seemed to remember I that itwvas the Sabbath and that in 1 d it was i hallow J ing. More than one hundred graves were I decorated in the different ecmeteri-J ol the city. This is the third year of the observance of this beautiful and most appropri tie cere mony. As flic years go by and those who now bring their fragrant offerings to the graves of fallen comrades shall drop out from the i ranks and join the great proccs-i u of the dead, may their places he filled by those who shall inherit their patriotism and the. .' grateful remembrance of the heroic dead.

Nearly all the Fenians have left for home. As the time for the departure of the southern train to-night drew nigh, tli*v gathered in force at the depot, and in spite of the rail road managers, continued to get aboard of the cars without tickets.

Meade strived here this afternoon ac companied by Gen's McDowell and Van V'liet and will leave for New York to-morrow. He reports the Fenian war ended. The leaders are in the hands of the civil authorities, and ' all is quiet along the lines. The government t will not provide transportation for the one thousand to fifteen hundred Fenians remain- ' ing in Malone and vicinity, and Gen. Meade | is of the opinion that railroad companies must ( do this at their own expense, as they received full fare for bringing them here. The Gcn'l reports that they are behaving very well, and not disposed to he violent, and only desire to return to their home. He- is confident that there will he no further trouble. . 1 tiow, N. Y..
