President Hayes Dnveils the Memorial Statue
to the American Poet
New York Gives the President a
Magnificent Ovation.
The Inauguration yesterday of tho Fitz-Orocno Hallock
memorial statue was an event that will not souu fude
from the minds of those who witnessed It.
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.
When President Hayes appeared on tlio doorstop,
?ceompauicd by General Sherman, Mr. Kvarts, Mr.
Garl Scburz and Admiral Rowan, to take up a position
to revlow mo advancing regiment, ho was received with
hearty cheers by the crowd, v.ho now filled the street,
occupying every coignc ot vantage. The differs wero
renewed again and again, and dainty lemiutne en
thusiasm louud expression in ibo waving ot bandker
chials, all ot which marks of luyalty nnd rosjh'ct wore
gravely and graciously acknowledged by tho President
While this little incident was passing on tue stoop
of Gcuerui'Wilsou's house the guliahl Seventh, in all
tbo glory of gray swullow tall aud while punts, had
entered Seventy-lourth street, 'llieir bund, dressed
llko Hungarian hussars, tilling the auiblent
sir with murtlul music. When in Irout
or the President the baud wheeled to the left and con
tinued playing while tho rcgimout marched pust.
Never did the gallant Seventh appear to better ad
vantage. 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.
The Veteran Corps also turned out In forte, and pre
sented a remarkably lino appearance. After the re
view Colonel Gidrke aud Colonel Pond were cougriitu
luted by tbo President ou Die i.umtrabio diacipliuo uud
tino appear.into of their commands.
It was now pust ihreu o'clock, and nine to depart for
for the ceremonial in the Park. President Hs.ves, ac
companied by the venerable poet William Cu libit dry
ant, entered a carriage and look u place at the head ol
the procession. 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
roprLAR xxthcsiahji.
Fifth itvenuc was literutly packed with people at this
time, and It was dlflicuit to make much progress, cud
at every step tho crowd seemed to increase um.I the
Mall, where the ceremony of Inauguration was to take
place, was reaobed. Here was assembled a vast con
course, aud wbercver one turned nothing was visible
but a bob ol laces.
Through a lane which had been kept free by tbe
Park pol cc tbe procession readied tbe platform, aud
President Huyce, with nls distinguished company,
took their pianos. Mrs. Hayes onoupied a Seat imme
diately behind her husband. -She was dressed tu biack
silk and wore a bonnet trimmed with winto luce uud
havlug u large white flower Hi I rout. A white camels'
hair shew I, wltn ligured border, was thrown over her
shoulders, notwithstanding the heat ot the day.
There was considerable couluaioii among tbe vast
crowd, for every one was anxious to get within hear
lug distance, and, owing to souio delect in tbe arrange
ments, n considerable crowd was permitted lo picas
la uu tbe suuae in front of the pbuiorm Hat
when tbe venerable pout William Cul on Bryant
ro-e uud prepurcd to spouk there cuuie a bush

happily chosen sentences be told the cause ol lueir as

T huvo reserved Ibr final mention an element In Iho

ism. Love ol country unit loyalty to country were in
the very grain and Here of his being. It whs a youth

and stimulated by the new dahgers, tno varied for
tunes and the llnul successes, on soa and laud, of ttio

love ol conniry which breathea In the closing lines lie

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

him in Ins youth uud hers. By the net ol its unveil

the hand of the nation s Chief Executive, and liy his

Mr. Evarts, In response le loud ches from the ?s

there'were loud cries of "Speech!" hesulo:?"1 km

Perhaps the most significant demonstration was the
reception tendered to President Hayes In passing
through Fifth avenue on his way to tho Film

the uveuue was black with an immense
crowd of people, wliile iho windows and stoops
ot the houses were filled with elegahtly dressed

to (he hotel was i no continuous ovation. Nothing
could be heartier lliuu the way the people oi all ciusses
marked their good feeling and respect lor tho I ro*i
dent, and It the Chid Magistrate is not salisll-d wuh
b:s reception in New York he must bj dllllcult to

A reception wits held in the Museum ot Natural His
