Friday, from 0 to 9 P. M., the elegant home of
Mr. and Mrs. William Brooks Gurley, on Six
teenth street, was tho scene of a beautiful
birthday party given by the Masters Gurley. It
was in celebration of the birthdays of Masters
Melville, Emerson, "and Richard Gurley, all of
which occur in this month. Tho suite of rooms
on tho first floor in the soft glow of the numer
ous lamrjs, with tho protty flowers and plants
and tho many lovely children flitting about,
seemed like a glimpse of fairylund. There
was music for those who danced, tho tower
drawing-room being reserved for tho daticera. In
the Moorish room the little ones who preferred
games were amused to their heart's content.
When the dining-room was opened it seemed
us though tho table had been spread by tho
fairies. There was an immense centre pieco of
American Beauty roses. Abigwhito swan was
floating on a lake of jelly; there were ice-cream
roses and lilies and cakes of all shapes and
colors and a huge birthday cake. In
the bay window of tho dining-room
was sot a smaller table with the chocolate sor
vice. After leaving the dining-room tho chil
dren were summoned by a bell to tho tower
room, where there was a flower-covered well, in
which, Mr. Charles Gurley announced, was
poor pussy. After reciting tho old nursery
rhyme of "Ding-dong dell, pussy's In tho well,"
Mr. Gurley let the bucket down, and, sure
enough, out came a diminutive pussy. It
looked about for a second or two, and theu
jumped into tho lap of one of tho little cue6ts,
thus solecting its mistress. Tho bucket was
kept busy going down the well bringing up
presents Jor all tho children. At 9 o'clock tho
band played "Home, Sweet Home," and the
little guests made their adieux with tho liopo
that tho triple birthdays might have many more
celebrations. Mrs. Shields wore black lace,
Mrs. Gurley was in a handsome gown of white
cloth, trimmed with fur, and Mrs. Whcatloy in
black lace.

SHERMAN DEAD !
I1Y J. H. MACKIjEY.'
The following stirring poem, read by
Charles Rhodes at a recent meeting of Encamp
ment 09, Union Veterans' Legion, is published
by general request:
Ah, lot no muflled drum nor blaring horn
Send forth its discord on tho wintry air;
Nor loyal breasts with weeds of woo adorn,
Nor cry aloud in accents of dispair
Softly, with tearful reverence, bo it said:
"The weary march is done our chief is dead 1"
Nor let tho strains of "Marching to tho Sea"
In echoes harsh resound by valo and hill;
Half-mast the treasured banner of tho free
Tho warriors Bhout, tho bugle-blast, bo still
Approach this presence with a silent trend,
The weary march is done our chief is dead.
What was his fame? Ask an applauding world
That sinus his well-won praises far and high;
Where'er a flag for freedom is unfurled,
The name of ''Sherman" glitters on the sky
Then view his slumbers with uncovered head,
Tho wearv march is done our chief is dead.
Tho Mississippi whispers to Its shoro
The fadeless story of his mighty deeds,
Tho Ohattuhoochio's ranid waters pour
Tho talo of triumph to tholr swaying reeds
Still tho lust foe his fatal dart hath sped,
Tho weary march is done our chief Is dead.
Atlanta beauteous Empress of tbo South,
Blazons his banner with a gleam of gold
And holler thought whero frownod tho can
non's mouth
Tho rose's blush nnd lilies bloom unfold
Yet broken, sad, tho mighty host ho led,
Tho weary march is done our chief Is dead.
No wild alarum simply toll tho bell
Tho vibrant echoes of our welling grief,
Whilo stammering tongues tho solemn story toll;
Wo mourn to-day beside our fallen chief,
Appall'd at last tho vetoran host ho led,
Tho weary march is done our chief is dead.
Wafted from Kenesaw's embattled crest
Is borne a story told in tragic lines,
And faintly, from a Hold whoro heroes rest,
Is heard tho sighing of tho Southern pines.
Long since, for these our bitter tears wore 6hed
Wo mourn afresh to-day our ohlcf is dead.
A flaming sword, ho moved by Bwamp and field
To whero Savannah neetles by the Bea;
A patriot true, ho saw tho foeraon yield,
And cast aloft tho ilag of Liberty.
To-day, alas! life's glimmering spark hath sped
Tiio weary march is done our chlof Is dead.
No rolling drum or blast of buglo-horn
No scattering volloy by his honor'd blor;
Symbols of pnaco let tondor flowers adorn
Tho startling legend: "Sherman slumbers
here."
Let tho grim Veteran come, with drooping head,
And cry aloud his grief "our chief Is deaU."
Hark I A Bwcot rauslo greets tho startled ear,
And 'wakes tho trembling echoes of tho soul;
A phantom bugle's measures rich nnd clear,
Across tho dark and troubled waters roll
Upon tho shoro a cheering light Is shed,
And comrades call "why mourn yo Sherman
dead?"
Tho eye of faith beholds bright banners wavo
Above tho rapture of a glittering throng.
And tho great joy of triumph o'er tho gravo
Is wafted buck, in wealth of merry song.
Down "by the sea" onco moro his host 1b led,
Then, comrade mine, why mourn wo Sherman
dead?
Hancock and Meado are waiting by tho shore,
Thomas and Grant enwrapped in beauty stand;
Garfield and Hooker join tho glittering corps,
And gallant Porter treads tho beauteous
strand;
There Sherman marches still, with victor's tread,
Whilo mortal weakness mourns a chieftain dead,
Thero seo tho bravo MoPherson's flitting form,
Thoro Sheridan and Logan Join tho host;
Thero Farragut, outriding ovory storm,
Is anchored far beyond earth's treacherous
coast;
Ah, view that camp, whoro fadeless light Is shed,
Then tell me, comrades, think yo Sherman dead ?
What though with paling cheek and batod breath
Wo stand to-day beside a comrade's bier
Wo tremble not to "measure arms with death,"
But to tho summons calmly answer "hero 1"
Wo march along with swiit, though tottering
troad.
To triumph still our comrades are not dead.
