Kinsley ost of the grand army of the republic were assembling at their headquarters in the third story in front of the Globe theater building preparatory to the observance of deco ration day. it was soon discovered, however, that the attention of the mem liers had better be devoted to moving out, and work was immediately begun. The post had a great quantity of valua ble proerty, much of which was saved, including the valuable portraits, i. -alius, belts and several books and pajers. The heavy cases containing Uooka and blanks iu the headquarters of : he department of Massachusetts, and .f the department of the United Btates, could not be got out, but were forced ieu and record books and a few othei valuables were removed.

Sab-Treasury Er.bezrlement Suit Colored May Festival Winds Up wltb a General Knock-Down General Items. New YoRi, May 30. George Mc Henry has addressed a letter to the New York stock exchange, advising that the Birschaflstein party are making stren uous efibrts to inout the committee of the London stock exchange to permit dealings in Erie shares without a rise of the Farmer's Loan and Trust company, and saying that the practical cll'ect would lie to neutralize the advantage of that rise at New York, for if the shares can be unloaded in London, without I i niit, that market will be weakened, and will react upon New York. A Washington special says that Post master Cresswell has examined the pos tal code to see if it would admit of a free transmission of newspaper exhanges of papers published within the county, and has come :o an adverse conclusion. A Wash;ugton special says the counsel for the defendants in the credit mobilier suit will, iu a few weeks, file a demurrer to the bill in eouity, taking the ground that the cct under which the bill is drawn is unconst.tutional, and that con gress cannot enact for the benefit of the government what is denied to individual suitors; and that the act is iu direct vio lation of existing laws, under which the defendarts have the right to ask protec tion : aud until they are place, i on an equality with the plaintiffs there can be no equita'-Je proceedings. This will carry the case to the supreme court. It is admit:--I that this objection of the defendants may quash further proceed ings. The sheriff's jury having declared George Francis Train to be sane, he was discharged from custody to-day. The announcement of the great fire in Boston caused much excitement iu this city. The insurance offices were nearly all dosed, but soon the principal officers of many were cu hand running over the books to see if they had risks in the dis trict burning. No markets to-day holiday iu New York and Buffalo. The congregation of the African Methodist Episcopal church.at Dean and bchenectady avenues, . Brooklyn, held their May festival in the church last evening. In the singing of psalms, one of the sisters felt herself aggrieved at some remarks of one of the brothers. A male f lend of the woman sought out the aggressor, and from words they came to blow, anc in a snon nme a general fight ensued. Chairs and tables were overturned, and soon the floor was cov ered with a rolling and struggling mass of men end women intermingled with capsized i.-cream, cakes and jellies, of all kinds. Tbe police were called, out before the,- succeeded in separating the combatants two of tbe force were knocked down, and nearly all the breth ren and si.-ters were marched to tbe sta tionhousc. Ex-Mayor Hall iu the United States circuit court to-day argued thedemurrer taken by him against the indictment charging George F. Dunning with hav ing embezzled moneys in the sub-treasury in this city, Mr. Hall contending that the indictment was drawn under the statute of 1823, which he claimed was repealed by the statute of 1866. In tbe course of his argument he said that the sub treasury' act bad been repealed by the blunder of a clerk. It had been intended to repeal that part of the act whi?h related to copyright, but bv an error of the clerk who drew the bill, the whole act was repealed, and 8) passed congress, since when the sub t reasurv is not legally in existence. The district-attorney .admitted that a blun der had been made, but that Attorney ( ;enera! Williams has decided that as the intention was only to repeal "the copvright clauses, the remainder of the act "was still in force. Decision is re served. Ex-Mayor Hall says there are numbers of such cases pending, but none will probably be called until the next congress meets, when the blunder will be remedied. George Francis Train, it is said, will sue the city for false imprisonment, laiming one hundred thousand dollars damages. An in Tease is reported in the number of horses sick on Coney island in the stables. At Brooklyn the disease is said to be spreading to other stables where a large numler of horses are kept. During a quarrel last night between John Burns and his wife, in Brooklyn, the latter was so severely tieaten that she died soo:: afterward. The husband was arrested. TELEGRAMS.

Several military eomiianies. including one of colored men, also present and participated in the exer cises, which were very impressive. The marked feature of the day, however, was the cordial co-operation of the fed erals and confederates in paying tribute to the memory of the dead. The services were opened by Bishop Bowman with prayer, after which Colonel John A. Joyce, a Union officer, delivered an eloquent oration, and was followed by Colonel Heinrichs in a brief speech in Jermau.

A special fea ture of profuse decoration was two large pyramids, representing different branches of the United States service, having for their most striking ornamen tation, muskets, sabres, swords, drums, and other implements of warfare, the whole being surmounted with a liberty cap. The tombs of the unknown dead were festooned with flowers and ever greens from base to apex, and from the muzzle ot each cannon surmounting it, stringers of evergreens twined down to the ground. The monument was cov ered with American flags wrapped with evergreens. The front of Lee mansion was also ornamented, the eight massive columns being trimmed with tri-colored fabrics. Above the columns a festoon of American flags was arranged, while in the center was a large shield, from which stringers of evergreens connected the col umns from the entrance to the amphi theater. There was a line of flags ex tending around tbe grounds, stand and auditorium back to the starting point, and at each tree near thereto a shield placed in position. The entrance gates were also arched with flags and ever greens. 1 be rostrum, capable of seatiug three hundred persons, was uncomforta bly crowded.

James Chester offered a prayer. A body of orphan- from the national soldiers and sailors' home, under tbe charge of the lady managers aud officers of the home, then sang a hymn, "Soldiers Memorial Day;" after which an original poem, "Unknown," was recited by comrade J. P. Irvine. In the course or the evening the graves were strewn with flowers. The Presi dent and family took with them to Arlington a large basket of the choicest dowers as a contribution to the decora tion. The exercises closed with the singing of the American hymn, "My Country, 'tis of Thee," with orchestral accompaniment by a full marine band AT NEW YORK. New ork, May 30. A beautiful sky ushered iu decoration day to-day, and at an early hour the grand marshal aud his assistants were at their posts, at the headquarters of the grand army of the republic, in North Union square. The room used by the committee was filled to overflowing with basket s of beau tiful flowers. For two hours the marshal and assistants were busily employed in loadingthe drays, which had been loaned for this purpose. About eight o'clock the different parts of the grand army of the republic began to assemble at the rendezvous in Union square, where had congregated an immense throng of people. There was considerable marching aud countermarching, but soon after nine o'clock the different aids reported to the grand marshal that the line was formed, and at half-past nine he gave the order to march. The con spicuous features of the procession were a colored corps, forming part of the mil itary escort, and a number of boys, or phans of soldiers, accompanied by their drum corps, from the Union home; also many girls tielonging to the same insti tution. The procession was accompa nied by several bands of music, and moved first to the statues of Washing ton and Lincoln, in Union square, both of which were covered with flowers and evergreens. The march was resumed down Broadway to Soutli ferry, a halt being made, however, at Trinity church, while Post Phil Kearney decorated the grave of that distirguished soldier, the band meanwhile playing a dirge. When the procession reached Brooklyn it was joined by the grand army of that city, and all loom the cars for Cypress Hill cemetery, where repose the remains of four thousand soldiers, the graves of all of whom were profusely strewn with flowers after an address by -Rev. Dr. Schenck. The sidewalks of the streets through which the procession moved were crowded with spectators, and on the several public aud private buildings flags were at half-mast. The govern ment offices were closed, also the banks and the different exchanges, giving to down town the appearance of the Sab bath. Early iu the morning a detach ment of marines and sailors, accompan ied by a number of officers, left the navy-yard for Woodland cemetery, where is the grave of Admiral Farra- gut. The ceremonies there consisted of prayer and an address, the singing of the doxology and pronouncing tne nen ediction, after which flowers were placed on the grave, the admiral's widow having previously placed there a magnificent cross of roses and immortelles. The ex ercises were brought to a close by tbe marines firing a volley over the remains of the naval heroes. A detail from the ninth regyncnt decorated the graves in the same cemetery of two sergeants who fell iu tbe twelfth of Juiy riot, three years ago, and then took the cars for Brattleboro, Vermont, to lay floral trit ute on the tomb of Colonel James Fisk. A man dressed in rags was lately arrested as he was trying to force an entrance in the house of the Princess d'Alembert, in Paris, for the purpose of begging.

Systematic Bobhery or Railroad Compa nies. St. Louis, May 30. Some time since the officers of the Atlantic and Pacific railroad company discovered that they were being systematically swindled out of passenger tickets on tne branches of their road, and at San Francisco, New York and other points. An investiga tion led to the discovery that clerks in their employ had been guilty of the peculation, aud that the loss to the com pany, so far as known, would reach twenty thousand dollars. It waa further ascertained thwe tickets were disposed of through private agencies, of which there are a large number in different parts of the country. To-day William P. Foster, proprietor ef Foster's express aud package delivery, in this city, who was formerly connected with the ticket offices of the Chicago and Alton road, and who now has a ticket office in connection with his business was brought before the criminal court on a capias to answer to tbe indictment for the receiving of stolen property, he be ing charged with having in his posses sion four thousand dollars.

The na tional agricultural congress met this morning, aud after receiving the report of the committee on meteorology, took a riHjess until eleven o'clock to accept the hospitality of the State board of agri culture who tendered them a drive through the city. On reassembling at half past eleven o'cioca in the morning, some unimportant business was trans acted, and the convention was adjourned to meet at Atlanta, lieorgia, m May, 1874. The afternoon session of the national agricultural congress was taken up in a renewal ot tne debate upon the report of the committee on miscellaneous sub jects, in regard to the resolutions touch ing the eignt-nour law passed by the congress of the United States, and quite a variety or views were expressed, the result being that no definite action was had by the congress. The question of transportation was discussed at consid erable length, the general idea prevail ing that the rates of transportation are exorbitant, and that relief should be found through some channel. But this very important question was, how is it to be obtained? The majority of the convention appear to be decidedly opposed to bringing about any antagonism with the railroad corpora tions of the country, but prefer to har monize the interests of grower and the carrier. The subject of pomology was brought up, and delegates were appoint ed from the several States to attend the meeting of the American Pomological society, to be held in the city of Boston. The committee on railway system, by its chairman, General Jackson, of Ten nessee, reported a series of resolutions on the subject, which were adopted unanimously, and which embody the equitable views of the entire body, and evince a conciliatory disposition on the part of the convention. The standing committees appointed at this meeting were continued for the current year The election of officers for the ensuing year resulted in their selection with the rreatest unanimity and erood feelinir. Vice-presidents for" aU the States repre sented were selected, and provision was also made for the publication and distri bution of a large number or the reports of the proceedings of the meeting, and (ieneral Meredith, of Indiana, and Mr Greene, the secretary of the congress, were charged with the duty of such publication and distribution. General V. H. Jackson, ot Tennessee, was cho sen president, Charles W. Greene re elected secretary, and Joseph Poole, of Indiana, elected treasurer. Atlanta, Ceorgia, was selected as the place for the next meeting of the congress, to be held on the second Wednesday in May, 1874. THE BEECUER SCANDAL.

The custodian of the covenant entered into April 2, 17,by Henry Ward Beecher, Theodore Tilton and Henry C. Bowen makes that instrument public this morning, assign ing as a reason therefor the fact that Bowen has of late repeatedly declared that he bad never disavowed his charges igainst Mr. tseecher, hut that be yet nsists upon their truth. The disavowal to which another is attached signatures of the above named opens thus: " We three men, earnestly desiring to remove all causes of offense existing be tween us, real or fancied, and to make christian reparation for injuries done or supposed to be done, and to efface the disturbed past and to provide concord, good will and love for the future, declare and covenant." Henry C. Bowen then disavows all charges and imputations attributed to him as made by him against Beecher, and declares without reserve that he knows nothing which should prevent him from extending to Beecher his most cordial friendship, confidence and chris tian fellowship; regretting sincerely that he ever made any imputations, charges or inuendos unfavorable to the christian character of Beecher, and promising never in the future to recur to them by word or deed. Theodore Tilton avows that he will never again repeat, by word of mouth or otherwise, any of the allegations, impu tations or inuendoes contained in his letter to Bowen, in which the latter is cited as the author of said allegations, etc., against the moral and christian character of Mr. Beecher. Mr. Beecher, on his part, puts tbe past forever out of sight and memory, and says: "I deeply regret the causes of suspicion, jealousy and estrangement which have come between us. It is a joy to me to have my old regard for Henry C. Bowen and Theodore Tilton restored, and happiness to me to resume the old relations of love, respect and re- hianee to each and both of them. If I have said anything injurious to the repu tation of either, or have detracted from their standing and fame as christian gentlemen and members of my church, I revoke It ail, and heartily covenant to repair and reinstate them to the extent of my power." The custodian of the covenant says the public can understand the brave si lence which the great preacher has kept under the protracted storm of slander. He had covenanted to bury tbe past and to maintain peace and brotherhood. The document is given to the world to entrap and convict the principal offend er .against truth, public decency and and the rights of reputation. ADDITIONAL MARKETS. SAVANNAH, May 30.
