It was soon diatotv'red by one of the GOeersl's admirers, who eartled it in triumph to him and sat : 'General, the coutntry anys so. and ween nature inorses the sentimnet." The guilty DL)MORAT reporter, who had gotten acommanding taosl tion, scanned the (eneral's countenance coee ly and awaited breathlessly the rep'y. A smile relaxed the features of the politically silent man. and he quietly said, "I wAVE sees IT ROWINO." After the Mexican war Grant was camped at nast Pascagoula with his commandt, and be In quired of the eltiens the posltion of hie old caton round. All aboard l and soon the liveliest rate of speed was attained. 'B actual time we were going at the rate of slllhtly less than a mile a minute, making the last forty-one miles in for ty-eight minutes, and running as smoothly as a pair of parlor skates; letter writing could be done as neatly as If anchored in the countin. house. Grant and the excursioni ates a unlt complimented Major Robinson highly on the great deeree of perfecion to which hbe bras tronght his road, but failed to find words capa he of itxrlPRRIgNtt THEIn APRIRytIATION of his efforts to render their trip a pleasant one. Not a wish had been expressed that the means of its gratifloation were not immedt atelr placed within teach. Frearant lavanns, soothing liquids from osparkling Apolo naril to the eeductive Champagne, and finaly a toothsome lunch appealed to the affections, nor appealed in vain. The verdict was, "When Major Robinson goes as commander of another expedition, may we all be there to see." Major Walker Fearn, who was thoroughly conversant with the country, had tolnted out all oblects of interest to Gen. Grant. and on reaching Mobllb was more thoroughly at home than ever, having there firat seen the light. MR. GARDIna. ereeldent of the Cotton ExchanRe, with the rest of the committee, entered the train and welcomed (ten. Grant, esonrting him thence to the carriage. In the meantime a rattllng salute wes fired by a detachment of the Btate Artillery. under Capt. Huger, which brought the slasses from the surroundlui building in glalling mhsses. As Gen Grant reached his carrilge the surging multitude crowd-d the ropes erect ed to restrain them, anti they parted. Then ensued pandemontum. Bearing bhresa. shouts for Grant, and General Yelling trom all elsies, made as oomlete a pictture of (IONFURTON WORG I. ONFOUNDED. as Mobile has seldom witnessed. It was aga'a day in the city and as to the exact number who had turned out to view the General there was some dispute. The carriagen bearing Gen. Grant, the committee and the excurelonists drove as rapidllry as possible to the Mana..as Club. where another scene of confu.ilon and scrambling ensued as Grant descended from his carrina. and the police had their hands full to keenp a clear way, AT THRW CUE Grant was addressed by Mr. Gardner, on behalf of the Cotton Exchange and by Recorder Owens, the a'ing mayor, on behalf of the city. The 'emarks were short and pleasant. Recorder Owens, in the excitement of the moment gave Grant no chance to reply, but began the inutro dutltion, and in a few mlutnuts all odj turned top magniflent eoldltion. Tnhe rooms were almost asolid mass of flowers, showing the greate t. taste in their arrangrmnnt. Generan good feel ing and jollity relaned. The DEMOoRAT re porter anti other representatives of the tress were taken charge of bodily and the grend old hospitality for which Mobile is so iustly cele brated came remarkably near causing them to succumb early In the action. If any of our cltl. sann visiting Mobile should desire to see no little of the citlly n possible, and to Irad a re tired end uncungenial life while there, they would do well by taking good advice and shun ning the Manassas Club, particularly Its mem bers, i'APT. oGO. vIDtIR and Mr. T. C. Carter, and in private life be sure to gtve the jovial George W. 8potswood the out direct, tor his wilt s art many. Mr. Lindsay. of the RegIte.r, might- be a safe man on Hunday. Toasts to the distinguished guest were drank with applause, and Gen. Grant then walked over 'o the United titates court-room, and held a h if hour reeption for the colord people At the expiration of that time be returned to the Manassas Club. and the partr, taking car liages. drove through some of the principal stieets. and thence down the bay to the Magno lia Race Course, where the celebrated oita8, KItMBALL, belonging to Cottrell, was brought out for in epc tion. He is a magniflcent dark chsttnut of over sixteen hands, ant is a perfect equine from the gronnd up. lHe gives proise nof great things andti it i. asetied that no horse in America, with the exception perhaps of I'. Lo rllalrd's will at all try hi mittle. He i Rlargely the fa Ivorite for tbhe Kentucky I)rrby. Gen. Grant ad. mired him in a very qtuiet manner, and al th ugh apparently Ioleased sald Itttle.

Walking laeiur, ly In he drew up it chair near the Gone ral, and, with a hearty RLAP' ON HIR KNEE, Ianlired: "General h iw do you like this sort of thing. anyway ?" Mnmbh'rs of the cimmitte,. who had be-n watching him. finding he was an interloper. l.d him o on unletti by the ear. The lin"' was form d, and Mr. Gardnuor eso t'd Gen.

After the solids had been distposed of. the addresse. of the evening were delivered, that of Col. Wickershbam. par tliu arly, being noticeable and it was applauded to the echo. glN. ORANT made a short speech., thanking the poolo for their warm reecvtion, and assuring them of the pleasure he had extrlenled during his visit; spoke of the goot feeling ex istingbhtween the North and 8outh, and hoped that nothing would her, alt 'r occur to cause its decline. After numerous toasts the [arty about 12 o''lock. adjourn, d; the General and excursionists going to the train, which wtas to leave at ti:o. Taking seats in the sReeLer and all smoking, the conversation took a humorout tur.n and some remark with regard to whisky, brou~ht to Grant's recollection an occurrence at FORT LRAVENWORTH, when he was young in the servi,'e. A scouting expedition was aolng into the Indian country, under command of Opt. Charlye May. He had issued orders limiting officers' b,*ggage to thirty pounds, and in going round to be cer taln that his orders were obeyed he spied a box belonging to Lieut. Hunt. and calling him. de manded to know what be had packed in that heavy box. The Lieutenant answered that he had only a few books. "Books." said Capt. "'WHAT IN THUNDER do you expect to do with books, fighting Indians. Tate thnm out. sir: take thern out i N ext-a baggage allowed." At this tolnt arother lieu ten-ant tepped up ard said modestly, ' C aItain. I had an Idea of asking permission to take a little extra b.ga.age, ant am sorry to hear you Dp,-itive ord-rs to the c nt'ary." "Well. sir." said May-. "and pray what might you desire to tk ? "Obh! Oaptain." hesitatingly. "I thought that perhape an er'ra BARRBBEL OF WHISKY might not come amiss." 'Ah. 'essi May. "well now. Lieu enant. y-s* I never objet to any thing in reaaon." Gen.
