Long before the hour uj pointed for the deparluro of President llaycs aud tho distinguished guests who were to rendezvous at tho house of General John Gmnt Wilson, In Suvouty-fourth street, taut usually quiet neighborhood was luvaded by a crowd of sightseers, principally ladles, who tool: possession of the door steps ai d wailed patieutly lor the pageant to begin. Nearly all tho houses in the street were decor ated with the American flag in one lorm or another, giving the street a gay ami animutcd appearance. It was now close on two o'clock aud carnages be gan to arrive. Hut lu spuo of all the watching the Presidential party entered tho house without being recognized except by a few persons who happened to ?ce them on some other occasion. A distinguished party was assembled to meet them at lunch. About lialf-pust two the tap ol the drum announced ibo approach of tho Seventh regiment, which was to act us escort during the day.

The ranks wcro well filled and tlie inarching excellent. As the oolor company passed the President removed his hat, and this tribute elicited renewed and hearty demonstrations irotn the assembled people.

It was now pust ihreu o'clock, and nine to depart for for the ceremonial in the Park.

The delay caused by waiting lor too other guesis gavo the people an opportunity to gather about the President's carriage uud tuuke themselves acquainted with the Chief Magistrate. At llrsl ihoy contented themselves with merely inking u good look at him; but some bolder person soon set die examplo ol tinuushuklug, and In a lew minutes a loug line ol pffople ol all classes was formed, who kepi the Presi dent busy handshaking, a performance no submitted to with good humor, until tho procession was rcudy to move. roprLAR xxthcsiahji.

T huvo reserved Ibr final mention an element In Iho character ami works ol Hrlleck which must not lie overlooked or underestimated. I moan his patriot ism. Love ol country unit loyalty to country were in the very grain and Here of his being. It whs a youth ful lustluct, nurtured in the fresh memories of Hie ltevoltiUoii. It was a uianly sentiment, strengthened and stimulated by the new dahgers, tno varied for tunes and the llnul successes, on soa and laud, of ttio later struggle with Ureal Britain. It was this suuio love ol conniry which breathea In the closing lines lie penuod lor the "American Flag," that noble ode, oegiu mug with iho bold and original metaphor ol Drake, RustulucU throughout by hi* impassioned gonitis, ami fitly ending in that Itusb of Halleck's noetic Itro which seotnn like iho auswerlng llsmo of Llbcriy consuming tho oil .'ring of her voturies. We dedicate this stufue to tne memory of Halleck as nn American poet. It is lortunntn that its dedication, winch marks as era in the annals ol our literature, should he uiado, In so conspicuous n tn.inuer, representative ol Iho unity ol our natlohal lite. The opening words ol dedication hnvo been fitly spokon by one who, start ing in the race with Halleck, was liko him a victor ou the same broad Held, and who still wears on hi* vene rated brow the laurel with which his country crowned him in Ins youth uud hers. By the net ol its unveil ing the stutiio hus been given to the public auzo by the hand of the nation s Chief Executive, and liy his gracelul trac.-ler confided to the keeping of the city where the poet dwell uud whonco bis words nave gone forth drlii-revor "the hints.of lamo hare Uowu."
