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.

THE FENIANS.
t
St. Albans, May 28.
Gen. Spear still remains here, but insists
tii.it lie had nothing to do witli the raid. He
claims that lie is a lookeron. and tliat he was
in council with the other Fenian lenders
Thursday, and chosen Coumiander-in-Chief.
He fears arrest by the T. S. Marshal. Capt.
,J. J. Monahan of Burlington, and Mai. Hugh
McGinnis of Cnmbridgeport, Vt., who were
arrested last evening, were to-day arraigned
before Commissioner Band, and admitted to
bail in §1,000, Chic! Police Downing becom
ing security. Capt. Daniel Murpny in de
fault of §1.000 bail was committed.
Col. Sullivan, acting Quartermaster since
the fight, lias been busily engaged in securing
arms. He claim- lie has hid a large quantity.
He came into town this morning, but learn
ing that a 11 the lenders were being arrested,
beat a liastv retreat to parts unknown.
Deputy Marshal Failev has been at Frank
lin iwo or three days gathering arms and
ammunition, and lias collected a large quan
tity.
Gen. Foster is determined that all person
who helped themselves, shall turn them over
to the l . S. authorities.
Gen. Donnelly is still at Franklin, but says
his condition is not so precarious as report
ed. He received only a flesh wound, and his
cause is represented worse tliau it really is
to prevent arrest.
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. It was concluded
to take them along, and the citizens feel re
lieved at their departure. Murphy the
teamster wtio was captured, was not iiung to
Later.
Four companies of l'. S. troops arrived
this morning, and soon after left for Malone.
The reports telegraphed throughout the coun
try that tile l . S. Marshal Foster, on do- j
ntamling the guns trken front this side of the
line by the Canadians, received the reply that.
he could have them only by the point of the
bayonet, has no foundation. Foster made
no demand for guns. One of the Canadians
who was in the Kicbard’s farm tight, says
that just 3t> Canadian- were engaged, and.
tliat'tlie artillery taken by the Canadians was ■
taken across the lines by an American.
Oopexsbvro, May 28. :
It is reported that 500 Fenians will pass
over the Koine & Ogdensburg Kailroad to
morrow on a special train for Malone. Depu
ty Marshal Benedict contemplates stopping
the force with the aid of the U. S. troops;
also all other bodies of Fenian* that may at
tempt to pass over tl is route to the front, un
less countermanded by the U. S. officers in
command.
One hundred Fenians at I’otsdam Junction i
attempted the seizure of the train of the t>g- i
densburg & Lake Champlain Kailroad going
east, but were repulsed by tT. S. troops. ,
Kach train is'now furnished with a guard of j
regulars. Deputy Marshal Benedict refused J
to provide transportation for the Fenians at
Malone, who desire to return home.
Gen. Starr of the -Fenian force, passed1
through this place to-day on route horqe, hav-1
ing abandoned the expedition. 11c reports
the Fenian force an unorganized rubble, ami j
impossible to handle. The Fenian autliori- j
ties are still confident, and are sending men |
in small parties to the front,' and striving to t
re-organize the Malone division. Apprehen
sion ot a raid exists at l’rescott, Canada, to
night, and the volunteers have been excrcia- j
ing in firing and skirmishing a large part, of j
the dav. I
Gen. 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. .
