I tho resemblance can never hayo been moro
striking than It wee at 8 oclock yesterday
tnornlne when the streets woro tilled with the
military uniformed civilians and police the
Itralnl of the Marseillaise sounded every
where and the tricolor of tho French republic
floated from roof tope windows and balconies
tocothor with our own glorious Stars and
tttrlocs Twenty thousand men In uniforms
were to march down Fifth avenue and Broad
way to tbo Battery with flags and bands ot
music and a million people moro or loss came
out to see the sight They moved from the
I IMt and west through tho eldo streets and
blookod tho walks alone the line of march
many of thorn In lay attire all of them In say
holiday spirits
But it was not an auspicious day for n cole
tratlon The gayety of tho early morning
Vrbloh withstood tho dismal aspect of tho
clouds cave way In an hour What wns lit first
but a molet atmosphere became a mint and
presently a drizzle and lone before the proDS
Blon bad reached tho Battery the colossal
t statue of Liberty out on Bedlows Island whloh
f P all this noise and muslo and demonstration
generally were to do honor to was mumod up
I Invisible in a regular London foe and the
1 7 tremendous tiring of cannon down tbo bay
from unseen nnrsblbs was either totally In
v udlbo ashore or sounded n I somebody were
tg1 ilatnralne doors
Every one cordially hoped on Wednesday
7 Blcht that a patriotic weather bureau would
f I MB to It that the storm should blow ovor anl
leave the day unclouded If possible but at
f any rato dry But the rain continued nil nleht
I lone and pretty much all day yesterday and
I on that account the decorations buildings
alone tho line of march were not n general as
I might have been nor as elaborate Tbo City
Hall was the only public building In town
which was notable by reason of the display of
bunting Flags and banners arranged with
f t taste sat off Its beautiful front splendidly and
I lone streamers of small flags festooned from
the dome heightened the effect The Post
t Offloa building was also tastefully draped with
r American and French Hags
t Up about the starting point In Fifth avenue
Snit south of the 1nrfe there wore many small
flags a there were Indeed from windows and
balconies all the way down to the Battery
t Trench faa floated over the Brunswick and
I the Uoffmaa Honso where the French guests
Ma quartered was gay with streamers of red
white and blue The Hotel Bartboldi too was
covered with bunting and from the Albomarlo
end Fifth Avenue Hotels fluttered colored
f streamers Across Park row between the
World office and tho Post Offloo building was
a arch of evergreens
Something of the lackof banners on tbo outer
walls of the brownstono mansions of Fifth
i avenue was made up by tho attractive displays
at the front windows whero charmingly
dressed women and children presented them
selves to view the parade and In turn them
1lvos to b viewed und admired Every door
step on tho avenue was crowded with a family
party The sidewalks were full to tho
j Curb and policemen alone tho avenues kept
back tho people from the roadway and after 0
oclock turned nil approaching wagons Into tho
side streets The Fifth avenue stages wore
allowed to run until shortly before tbo hour of
the march and hundreds of pooplo sit on tho
roof seats In the rain to ride over the Hue and
lea tbn display

for another outbreak of the hideous pamlomo

to conceive a worse noise than that which

noise which greeted Mr Evarts whon he

He abandoned speaking for some time nnd

was dltohod nt East llio siding n small station
about thlrtoan miles east ot this city on tha

place and at the time lie train was duo there
last night both woro occupied by freight train

11 Conductor H P Honkey of this city which
had just pulled In from tho west to allow tha
limited to past No li was vary long end tha
conductor was at the bond of the train
relying upon tbo brakeman to attend
to the switch Ono report says the
roar brakeman whoso business It was to close
tho switch altor the train for some reason
neglected to do so The other and moro prob
able story Is that ho started back to close tha
switch but before ho could roach It the limited
which does not stop at any except large places
came tearing down the grade at fifty miles na
hour and loft the rails nt the opon switch The
siding Is In a cut where the road curves io that
the switch light cannot bo sean from the CM
until a train Is within a few rods so the end
noer of the limited could not eoo the switch
light turned wrong until too late to stop
The engine lot the track ran a short dlev
ante and brought up against a sandbank
toppling over Tho baggage oar and two reg
ular coacbon followed while four sleepers kept

Hint Is left of thin illfatnit travellers Tba
burning of the baggage obliterates the only
