The bodies will be received by Ma jor General Hancock and staff and an escort to consist of all available troops from the va rious posts in the harbor. Each casket will be placed by itself on an artillery caisson, the band playing a dirge as it is received, and the procession then forming will move in the following order to the post hospital, wnicn has been designated as the receptacle of the bodies: Escort and Band.

THE POLITICAL AFIPAI(i. Governor Cleveland In No Hurry with His Letter, i New York, August 6. An Albany special says that Governor Cleveland has been busy to-day preparing for his trip to the north woods. He will leave Albany to-morrow to be absent probably two or three weeks. Sev eral delegations of workingmen called at the executive chamber this afternoon and were J presented to the Governor. The trip to Greystone yesterday in company with Daniel Manning, his friends here say, was of no po litical significance, but there is no doubt that the pilgrimage was made to obtain advice from Mr. Tilden. "Is your letter ready to be published '" was asked the Governor. "Oh, not yet," he re plied, "there is no hurry. I have given con siderable thought to it. i will nmsn it as l feel in the humor. Daring these dog days people want to rest; they don't care for poli tics, you know." "What will be tne leading ieature or your letter?" "That I can hardly say; when fin ished I will give it out for publication and then it will speak for itself." Among the Governor's callers this after noon were William C. Kingsley of Brooklyn, William W. Wright of Geneva, General Clunie and state senator Knglish of Califor nia. The latter gentleman gave an encour aging report of the political feeling on the Pacific Coast. Governor Cleveland will leave at 1 :20 to-morrow for Upper Saranac Lake. panion. They go for rest, recuperation and pisoatorial sport. Governor Cleveland says he will be absent two weeks. His letter is not finished. He does not think it will be issued before the end of the next week. The date of its publica tion he says will depend' very much upon how he feels during the vacation. It may proba bly be deferred until after his return. Mayor Harrison, of umcago, arnvea to-night, lie went to the executive mansion and had a long interview with Governor Cleveland. To the united .tress reporter sax. ramson"said.: "Our prospects in Illinois are very eood. They are betting even that I will be elected governor. As things stand I will probably run several thousand votes ahead of Cleveland. The action of Tammany has had some effect on the Irish voters, but I think matters will even up and all breaches be closed before November 4." Bef erring to the report that he had packed the convention in the interest of Cleveland, Mr. Harrison said Tammany did all the packing the first day. The police were in sympathy with them and passed large numbers of Tammany ites into the hall. Mr. Harrison thinks. But ler can do harm if he finally decides to run. and that John Kelly and his following as good and loyal Democrats will eventually give their support to the ticket. Mr. Har rison refused to converse on the subject of his interview with the Governor. He leaves to-morrow morning for New York. Nominations for Congress. Time Haute. Ind., Aue. 6.

James Ashley shot and killed his father-in-law, W. F. Hess, yesterday in this city. For the past two years Ashley has been the victim of epi leptic insanity, the result of a blow on the head, and Mr. Hess had been appointed his guardian. Recently it was decided to place him in an insane asylum and yesterday he was arrested and brought here. He was fu riously indignant and demanded an immedi ate trial, and when Marshal Still tried to handcuff him he said he would die rather than submit to the indignity. A friend of his named Bailey came to his assistance and frightened off Hess and the officer with re volvers, one of which he gave to Ashley. The marshal returned to arrest Bailey, who fired at him but missed. Ashley 'went hunt ing for Mr. Hess, found him and fired at him but missed. Hess struck him with a cane, but failed to disable him, when Ashley shot him in the hip and abdomen, the latter wound resulting fatally. Ashley then leaped upon his horse and was galloping away with the marshal after him, when he fell from his horse. After a few exchanges of shots with the marshal Ashley surrendered and was giv en up to the sheriff, who jailed him. HATCH TAKES THE FIELD Against The Intruders In Indian Ter ritory. Caldwell, Kan., Ang. 6. Gen. Hatch moved his headquarters from this city into the field yesterday, the camp being twenty five miles southeast on the Chickaskia river where six companies of the Ninth cavalry are concentrated. His future movements are not made public, but there is no doubt that from this time forward blows will fall thick and fast until the last intruder in the In dian Territory has been expelled. An im pression prevails that the nest at Bock Falls, a few miles below Hnnnewell, will be raided first, the printing press and belongings confiscated and the contents of the notorious drug store destroyed, and that Payne and his ringleaders will be marched to Fort Smith to answer numerous indictments in the federal courts. The valley settlement will be clear ed up next by detachments of troops striking simultaneously from numerous camps along the Cimarron and the north fork of the Ca nadian rivers. Every consideration possible will be shown the women and children, but the men, especially old offenders, mnst take the consequences of their unlawful and high handed conduct. All improvements will be destroyed. The best information attainable places the number of "boomers" at two thousand. The Fastest Eastward Passage. London, Aug. 6.

A SHOCKING CASE. A Negro's Inhuman Brutality to His Wife. Franklin, Pa., Aug. 6. A very peculiar and horrible case of cruelty and crime was disclosed in this city this evening, creating intense excitement and open threats of vio lence are heard on every hand. A colored man named Johnson conceived a violent hatred born of jealousy against another ne gro named Banks. He determined to use his wife as an instrument by which to punish his hated and imaginary rival. He com manded her to go before a city official and prefer a charge of indecent assault against Banks. Upon her refusal to comply he cruelly beat her with a club. When she still refused he plaited together three hickory withes, forced her to remove all her clothing and beat her with this whip until the blood ran down her limbs in streams. Not even then did she agree to make the charge until he had punished her in a manner the most cruel and too horrible to mention. Finally by threat ening her life he accomplished his foul de sign. Banks was incarcerated to await trial. A little girl who had witnessed part of the cruel treatment told the story to a gentleman who on investigation had Johnson arrested. Johnson's wife, on being assured of protec tion by the officers, told the whole story, and Johnson is now in jail and Banks has been released. WESTOTONT MAKES A MISS In His Attempt to Lower His Pacing Record. Buffalo, New York, Aug. 6. The morn ing opened clear and cool. A shower last night and the threatening aspect of the weath er seemed to indicate that a further post ponement of the grand circuit trotting races might be enforced, but this cleared away and by noon the weather was fine. The track was in fair condition bnt a little slow. In anticipation of a great effort by Westmont to beat his own record for a purse of $2,500 a larger crowd than usual on a first day congre gated at the driving park. In this, however, the spectators were disappointed, as the great pacer did not approach his previous exhibi tion of speed at Chicago and Pittsburg. The programme was as follows: First race, unfinished 2:30 class, trotting, $1,500 divided. Charley Hogan ". 15 13 Pearl 2 8 4 1 LillieDale 3 3 3 2 Tom Campbell.... 4 18 4 Frank Hale 5 4 5 Time, 2:33$, 2:23, 2:22, 2:23$. Second race 2:21 class, trottine. Sl.600 divided: Will Collender 4 2 3 Secret : 2 3 2 Bayonne Prince 8 dis. Foe B Ill Time, 2:2, 2:21J, 8:22. Special race, Westmont with Firebrand as running mate, to beat his reeord of. a:01j. While" a large measure of interest was mani fested in the several heats of the other classes, it was decided that this event was the mag net of attraction and-when Mr. Johnston ap peared upon the track with the pair it was the signal for the warmest applause. They looked a splendid pair indeed. After a pre liminary warming np they got away at a ter rific gait, going to the quarter in 33, to the half in 1:04, to the three-quarter in 1:85 ana came to the head of the stretch very last, but unfortunately Westmont left his feet here and finished running in 2:08. His second heat was not ' an improvement. He reached the quarter m 31, the half in l:Ud, the three-quarter in 1:34 and finished in 2:09. It is bnt fair to say in reference to this event that the effort was made against a retarding head wind and a rather slow track. The events for to-morrow are the 2:25 and 2:23 class trotting and 2:17 class pacing and five mile running race against time by the lady riders, Miss Peck and Madame Marantelia.

Woodman, who read an address to Mr. Blaine signed by 221 business men, congratulating him upon the honor of his nomination. The address con tained the following: " Many, of us have enjoyed the privilege of a per sonal acquaintance with you, and although we have not all been able to agree with you upon political questions, we have all had confidence in your integrity as a man and your purity and ability as a statesman. Though your success in the coming election may widen your opportunities for useful ser vice, it will add nothing to the unlimited confidence and esteem sustained for you by us in common with the great mass of your fellow citizens of Maine. Mr. Blaine on rising to respond was re ceived with a magnificent ovation and it was some, minutes before he could speak. He Was plainly affected by the reception given turn and his voice trembled. tie briefly thanked the assemblage for the reception, reviewed his residence in the city in 1857-59 and congratulated the citizens upon their commercial integrity and prosperity. When Mr. Blaine resumed his seat he was loudly applauded. Mr. Reed then an nounced that Mr. Blaine would be glad to take all his friends by the hand and almost every person present seemed to avail himself of the opportunity. It is estimated that be tween four thousand and five thousand were present. At the close of the reception Mr. Blame was driven to his hotel. To-morrow he will go to Old Orchard.

The committee claims that the new party will poll 70,000 votes in New York alone. The opening stanzas of an address was issued yesterday reading as follows: "1876, American Political Alliance, 1884." "Sound the alarm. Ring the bells on every village green in the land. Down with the attempt to elect a President of the United States by aid of a concentrated foreign or naturalized vote. Americans to rule Amer ica. It becomes necessary when foreigners organize political bodies composed of natur alized voters purely for the American born voters to place an American ticket for the American voters without distinction of party to vote on, for President and Vice-President of the United States at the cominge lection." Another address will be issued August 15. It is proposed to organize clubs and start at once on a vigorous campaign. LOCAL NEWS. GRAND LODGE OF HARUGARI.
