Several of the benevolent and military asso olations, connected by the links of memory and id-ntifl-d by history with the late war, took the 0ti, o'clock traiu of the (lty ,dilroad to the cemeteries. bearing their floral trluutee. Among the number were a commaltee from the Army of Tennessee, the Army of the Grand itepublio, Mower Post No. 1, the Contineatal Guards, the Washington Artillery and the Reglment of Orleans Artillery. On the arrival of the train the committees found at the foot of the Confederate monument a valiant though small troop of ladies, the near dian agvaels of Confederate memories. Mrs. Tneodore Shute, &trs. Dr. Crawoour, Mrs. Handle and Mrs. Louis Adams, representing that indomitable yet sweet spirit of the wotaen of the South. represented by the Ladies' Monumental Association to who,se ex ertions (land we must not forget Mrs. Pritchard. the president, who came later) is due the ereo tion of the Contederate monument, a work of art of which New Orleans may well be proud. These ladles were surrounded with baskets of flowers and mementoes, and immediately the work of decoration began. The tffering on behalf of the Army of Ten nessee was the first vpla.d on the monument. It was a fac simile in roses and immortelles of the badge of the asso .tatlon, the blue cross and white stars on a red field. The officers of the regalment of bhaded by Col. A. J. Bachemin then appeared and handed to the committee of ladles a beauti ful wreath of evergreen in the centre of which was a 'cross-e4,nnon in rose.buds" with the letters 'i O. A." and the date "isso" below. Col. Bachomin said: "We come on behalf of the officers and men of the Regiment of Or leans Ai tillory. not with artificial flowers. but with natural fl ,wre. expressing the true feel ings of those who couowose the regiment I have the honor to command." Mrs. Theodore chute accepted the offering. and placed the wreath on the monument, and while she was thus employed the committee of the (ORAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. headed by Gen. Badger. was received by Mrs. Randle. vice president of the Ladies' Confede rate Association. Mrs. Dr. Crawc ur and Mrs. Louis Adams. Gan. Bvlger tendere I a beauti fui shield of fresh flowers, surmounted by a white dove, bearing an olive branch, and said: "We come to place upon this monument of rtve heroes our humble offerings. which re present true sentimen's." The offering from the Washington Artillery was pIesentel by Lieut. H. Ieilher.uf Battery B. It. was a wreath of flowers and evergreens, en circling the letters "W. A." in red and white roses. Lieut Chs. W. Dawn, on behalf of the Conti nental Guards. represented by a committee. presented a maglflcent basket of red, white. blue and golden flowers, representng the battle flag of old days. This was placed in front of the monument. Below this was p1 iced a cross of white and red flowers, presented by Mrs. Gon. Polk. On top was a most handsome "eCr belll-" of rare flowers. ive-n by Mrs. Marcy. Under the offering of the Army of Tennessee flgured a tasteful basket of flowers, coming from Mrs. Gov. Francl T. Nioholls. Tue Army of Northern Virginia sent a basket of red and white roses, which wes placed on the front of the monument, immediately below the Continental Guards' offering. The entire mound which surrounds the monument was covered with bouunets and flowers, coming from various sympathizing friends. THE WASINOTON ABTILLERY MONUMENT was beautitully decorated. On the front (east side) was a wreath of blue flwers encircling two cross cannon, made out of immortelles. On the wast, B. W. A.. In roses and ililes, On the north, the words "At Best." and on the south. "Our Dead;" all in roses and, lilies. il,'wers of all kinds adorned the sides of the monument. It is suggested that the decorations be left for a day or two on the monuments, ihat visitoes may gather to the cemeteries and see the beaux tiful mementoes. William Scott resolved to kilt his dis obedient son Oharlie, at Delaware, Ohioe and took him home from a neighboa's house for that purpose. The boy rode along quietly, listening without reply to the father- argu ments in favor of the death penalty, and making no objection to the proposed means of murder--a bullet from a rifle. On alight ing to open the gate, however, he drew an unsuspected pistol, took t.feful aim at his father's head, and shot him dead.

At a o'clock on Tuesday the grand steamer John W. Cannon left the levee with Gen. Grant and Invited guests for the purpose of visiting and inspecting the jetties. Capt. Jas. It: Badn and many other of our prominent citizens, with ladles and children, formed quite a pleasant company. The band of the Thirteenth Infan try on the hurricane roof strucl up, as the Cannon backed out, and moved majestically up stream to aboutthe foot of Race street; there she turned and went dashing down under a full head of steam, with colors flying and band playing. All the tugs and steam vessels, as the annon passed. PULLED THEIR WHIRTIE stings until the air was fairly redolent of steam and the noise coafening. General and Mrs. Grant. with Capt. Ends. occupled se.ats on the hurricane roof anwl took In the scener7 in passing. It was a bnautiful morning; the clouds that had low«erod on the horizon at the early dawn were swept away by a genital south. ern bre' z~. that also tempered thi flterre rays with which oldl ol has been favoring New Or leans for some days, From the elevated site on the upper decks, TIIK COUNTRY AROUND looked a very paradise. The long and level pl.nutations tipped with verdure the stately residences, the orange groves, the dim and dlstant woodlands, the placil river, the plow men turning in lengthened furrows the wlillna soil. formed a picture not unworthy of the pencil. DOWN TlE RIVER, where the threatening wat' rs almost overlapped the staunch levees, t.at Mr. BIradish Johnson's fine plantation, and then. as Gov. Warmoth's retreat, the Magnolia plantation, hove In sight, the steamer pointed her prow to the lauding. and sounded a notice of her coming. TheAmerlcan fi rg was run up on shore and the dark i s,large and small, came chasing from every direction to view the disemberkation of G'n. Oramit. On landing Gov. Warmoth and Mr. Bradish Johnson assisted the General into the Governor's carriage, and thoy drove to the house, the carrJage returning for the ladies. On arriving at the Governor's residence they were invited up sthirs. where Mrs. Warmoth held a reception. After the presentation the Governor said: "Gentlemen and ladies, allow m-+ to invito you all down stair4. to have some buttermilk. sweet milk or any other kind of milk:" and all Imme diately filed down to the dining-room, where the table was tastefully arranged and loaded with refreshments. In the shape of dainty cakes, IItnked by pitchers of creamy milk. Those DERIUIXIO BUTTERMILK were helped by the Governor, and the sweet ml!k was served by the hands of the lair hostess Some one conversant with the lacteal fluid Informed Gov. Warmoth that the pitcher of milk which he held in his hand and Indorsed as buttermilk was a failure. Incredulous, he tasted it himself. An idea struck him-the cow that gave the buttermilk hadn't come up, He rushed to Mrs. W. and informed her of the facts of the case, and it was soon rectified. A fire now opened from the side tables; from a skirmish it became a pitched battle, and the CORKS FLEW ASBT and furious. Gov. Warmoth gave as a boast "Our distinguished guest. Gten. Grant; may he be blessed with health and happiness and the ,ttaiument of every desire." Drunk amid long and continued applause, the General simply bowina his thanks. The Qovernor resuming-Ladlos and gentle men. I ask you to join me in drinking the health of my friend and neighbor. Mr. Bradish Johnson, whose good father founded this plantation nearly a century ago. and who. by the merest accident, is debarred from calling it his birthplace. MB. JOHNSON responded. He spoke of the memories attach ing to the place, even to the very soot on which be was then standing-during the time jnst prior to the battle of New Orleans He termi nated with a sentiment to the distinguished guest. THE LUNCH ENDED, Mrs. Warmoth and her little son Frank. ese corted by Gen. Grant, were driven to the boat. and soon "All aboard I" was sounded, and the Cannon's head was again turned for the eotties, which were reached at about 2:30 o'clock. The vessels lying there were gally decorated with flags, and their crews lined the sides and rig lgng. The tug Ella Andrews. belonging to the jetty works, came alongside and took off Gen. Grant. Capt. Eads and many members of the excursion who were desirous of getting a near view of the works. THE LENGTH OD THE WOR.S and all the various details connected therewith are somewhat like a twice or thrice told tale and but few of the particulars wi h be entered into. The party first landed at the Concrete works. Here is manufactured the material of Shlch a solid wall is boing built that will defy both winds and waves. The broken rock. sand, gravel and cement for forming the concrete are dumped into a box elevator, which is hlseed by an engine and shot through a movable chute into a large square iron tank. which, when partially filled. is revolved by machinery, and water beloa ad mitted, the enclosed mass becomes thoroughly stirred and mixed. LT Is THEN dropped into a dump car. whosesemi-cylindri cal body revolves. A small locomotive is then attached. and carries it out to the required spot on a track built immediately over the now part ly.flnlhed wall. The desired position reached. a crank is turned.and the oonorete tumbles into a wooden mould, which eneloses the wall be neath. and extends no far enough to hold the [ mass until it is thoroughly hardened. The mould is then raised and another lord deposited,, and so the work goes on. A visit was then paid to the powerinl dredaeboat of the Jetty 0 'mpany. Her immense pump vwa put in motion, and the stream of water ti raised would have astonished a first class 3im, ropean river. OZN. OBANT seemed to be deeply interested in everytbftg he "awm and his remarks though comparaively few, were to the point. capt. Eads took great pleasure in pointing out all objects of interest. Insomuch so that dinnertime had been untirely iorgottenezceot by those of grosser mal'., and partieularly parties who. having beep no late at the banquet of the preceding evenlng, had eaten little or no breakfast befora- leaving home. rTm EXCUmBIONISTS remaining on board set signals of dir trees and hurried the sight-seers on to dinner. The lone catin was entirely fJled with di ners.the number of excursionist. 'numbering about one hundred and fifty. The cbhandliers were deeurated with small Unit.od States lags, and the pier glass in the laiJes' cabin was draped in a large ensign, and w.vross it, on a whits ground. "Gen. U. S. Grarj. The Jetties' Frar,d." The dinner was a sucoesa and the hungry were satisfied. CAPT. Eh ,3. had during the day brougnat out the plans of his proposed ship railway across the isthmus and unite a large assenVAage gathered around him and Gen. Grant, divteasina the possibili ties and orobabilities.. Gov. Warmoth enie.tained a grouv of ad mirers by recounting scenes in his , olitoial campaigning expeilinee. Said he. 'I went uo to Jackson varish 1' "17. I knew it was a dan ger,,us leocalty. tut it had to be done. When I reacher, the meoting-house I found about s, half-dozen colored v ters, and the rest of tb.e asserablage consisted of the unintimidat d. with arsenals about them. Their very sadr'le. I bags were plethorle of :steel, and their eyes looked blood. IT WAS A TIORT PLACM. but as there was no back out I began; 'Fellow. citizens of Joksonr Parish-I have heard moelb of your hospitality and have longed to come among you. to granp your hands in friesadship to stand face to atse'- IBndlng that t frowns grew Idark and barker as I'prooeed, I changed my course and grew funuy. I re peated the best assortment of jokes Id at my command and beamed benignantly and humor ouly nouon them, but it -y ,s no use; the frowna and threatening looks grew blacker: it was a crisis; I changed my tone and gave them Sta. h charaged them with every trime in the caben dar and offered end insisted on adduoing the proofs. They wilted, and viectory was mine. I returned there in '76 in companywirh ien. Ogden and others. I look the rtend and bean: Fellow-ol izens or Jackson Parlh I have heard much of your hoscitality, and have longed to come among you to grasp Your hands in friendship." etc. SOME TIME AFTER DN.mIt Gen. Grant, ace oma'l .d by, Gen. Moillan. tov. Warmoth and Mr. Soammon. proprietor of the ChOlago Inter Ocean, took seats on the port side, where they were protected frote the force of the wind, and a lively conversation on general topie sprang up. Gas. Grant. If not a rapid or brillinmt talke- has apparently a retentive memory and talks of matters and thlcgs unconnected with the political compliea tions at home very fluently. IIa TALKED for a long time on Mexico, its scl. climate and teovle, and prononeued it one of the finest countri-s he had visited. He spoke of the fear the Mexican people had that the 'tilted Stateu desire to obtain silos of th'ir territory by foul means, which fear he did his utmest to banish. aseuring them that the people of thlscountrr only oeslred closer intercourse wits them, and were pleased to see the advancement ther were making in developing their countr7y HE CITED TO THEM the fact the State of Texas alone furnishes tilla ble land enough to cultivat- all the plowed crops in the United States. alid leav eeoooacres for pasture. Diz, he says. is ineligible for re alec ion on account. of a constlitutional pro vision, and sld provIsion wae Inserted in the nnstitution by the iuiltenoe of Disa himeelf. When he mentioned the fact of bLare being limited to one term he milled broadly. A guntlhman spoke of the General's narrow eso.pe from shipwreck. (O ant answered that he had had the pleasure of reading his obituary in a Democratio paper, and comment. lrI ,n it seemed rather pleased that his actions were attributed atleast to hottest motives. The (enetal mixed largely with the oompany, ant made himself genorailly agresabie. During the eveitag Rev. Dr. B lstor Inter ested an appreciative audience with a selection of readings, and some of the younger folk tried their powers of oraorry, etc. The boat landet at Magnolia, and the Governor's charming family departed homewards, the band playing ".wet Bye-and Bye." Geo. Grant wis here. there and everywhere. The only point of political signileance In hlb movements, now. ver, was a long and apparent Iv lateresting interview with Judge Taylor Beattle. but the topic discussed was no asoer tainable by the DxiMoonAT reporter. The clty was reached by half-past l2Oo'olok. and the adieos having been said. the party dis persed. Gen. Grant driving to Mr. FearWat. ON FRIDAY he goes to Mobile. returning that night, and leaving by rail for Vicksburg on Sunday. where be wil take the boat and go. perhaps, to. Mem phis. LOUISIANA PRESS. The Iberville South Is strongly for Han cook, and believes "that should his owe State declare for him he will be nominated withont opposition. Give us a good man foe the see ond place on the ticket and we are certain that the third term supporters would not be strong enough to ask for another electoral commission. The St. Helena Gazette says, apropos of the nomination for Congrees from that (the sixth) district: "The Amite City Ahdepen dent heartily indorses our suggestion to urge upon our delegates to the approaching con greselonal convention to use every. erertion to secure the nomination of a man from the Florida parishes. We are entitled to the nomination this time, and must coatend for it." The Houma Courier is convinced that the nomination of Mr. Tilden will not tend to harmonize the party in New York,. and the result would certainly prove disastrous. Can the Democratic party afford to lose the vote of New York. If Tilden is nominated the party will certainly lose that vote, and defeat will certainly follow. In this dilemma Han cock is the only candidate that ca harmo nize the politics in New York,. and therefore the only man that should be nominated. Let us have Hancock by all means. The Morehouse Clarion. thinks that the Hancock enthusiasm in this State "may re suit in a serious mistake. An over-zealous anxiety to have the gallant Pennsylvania sol dier to occupy the White House may induce our State convention to instruct its delegates to the national convention in such a manner as will do untold injury to the party. While we are not an enthusiastio Hancock man, we want the delegates to Cincinnati so untram maled as to use all their inilueneaegalnst the. old 'wishy-washy' Tilden. By instructing our delegates to vote solidly for Hancock,, the chances of Tilden are augmented. Let our delegates go to Cincinnati unincum-t bered." The Shrevebort Neiandardo does not believe that "the Sunday law, now before the Legis lature, will pass that body. Such a law is re pugnant to the spirit of the Democratic party, which has always held that church and State should he kept apart. From our reading of the Scriptures we do not thiek such legisle tion in consonance with the teachings of Christ. 'Render unto Cas.r the thlngothat are Closar's,' would seem. olearly to inculcate a different lesson.. Men iannot be legilalted into religion;, they must be won by moral suasion, not forced through fear of human law. The absurdities and workingeeof the Sunday law in Texar should be a au8flleo t warning to L0ouislana legislators. Let ar not in this enlightened age curinher out. statutes with laws so ltke tim Bluq Laws ol Connectieut. So mmuch from a moral point i: view.
