Kraut and Lee' Hsrreadtr. Lee's surrender to Grant was as a ceremony simple enough, and will probably never be a scene put on canvas. Colonel Scbaft'ner, who was with General Grant, said to a writer in the Courier-Journal recently that when on the road to Appomattox, he found an occa sion to ride beside Grant, "and," he adds, "after much circumlocution 1 said to him that as the surrender would be formal and ceremonious, as I supposed, I wanted to have a sketch made at the time in order to have a laws painting made of it for the capitol. IlavinK listened to what I had to say, he very quietly and with some sentiment re marked that he would not like to see such a picture, nor was it big intention to hae a surrender with ceremony. He continued for some minutes, stating among other things that 'these, are our people,' and it would have a bad e fleet to humiliate them. 'They are not foreigners, but they belong to us and -ve to them; and all we want is for them to stop lighting, and tor us all to live at peace and as a Union.' 1 made a sliaht effort to chance his views upon the subject, and expressed the opinion that future generations should see the end of an attempt to destroy the Union. He - answered that the traces of the armies left evidences more than sufficient. ' After the surrender had been concluded, Lee requested Grant to inform him if the terms of his letter permitted his private soldiers to take with them their private property. Grant examined the letter and said he thought not. Ijee responded that he so understood it, and that be desired to know, as all his cavalrymen owned their horses. Grant then very prompt ly said that he did not know that, but he would give orders to allow them to take their horses, as they would be needed to cultivate the crops. Lee answered, 'I thank you; it will have a good eiiect with the people. brewery and is still burning furiously. The hre started in a new building, usea as a man house. It appears that the fire at the First ward high school was not entirely out, and after the engines bad left for the fire at the brewery the flames again broke out, and the probabilities are that the building, which is one of the finest in the city, will be entirely destroyed. The malthouse. icehouse, office, barn, and elevator.contaimng a large amount of grain, are in ashes. No more hopes now of saving the main building, loss estimated at over two hundred thousand dollars; insur ance will nearly cover thejioss. It is dimcnlt to get a correct estimate ot the losses sustained. The grain in the ele vator is ruined for brewing purposes; that portion not burned is damaged by water. The barlov mav be used for the field. The loss on crain is put at one hundred ana eighty thousand dollars; on buildings, office furniture and machinery, one hundred and fit'tv thousand dollars, making a total of three hundred and thirty thousand dollars. These are the outside ngures given by the proprie tors and experts; insurance men think the losses will not reach two hundred thousand dollars. The insurance policies are in the safe, which cannot be opened for a day or two; but it is believed the risks aggregate five hundred thousand dollars. I he origin of the fire vet remains a mystery; the only reasonable explanation is that it was the re sult of combustion in the drying kilns, sit uated back of the office. PAKJfEJLJU Preparations for a 6rand Reception la fUmore'a Uarden, New "York, of Parnell and Dillon, the .bend era of the Land Aclta tlon In Ireland. I COTTON FACTORS, prom- .DU- The Shapely Lnaelono, Dark Kyed .Madrid Jfeue. Madrid correspondence of the Baltimore Sun: To-day I was asked by one of the dark- eyed, fascinating, graceful and stately dear ones of Madrid if I would ride out to see her iriends, who were arranging costumes for the comingefea. I readily consented. How far do you think was the rideror drive? Merely round the corner. This round-tha-corner represents a distance equal to the nearest Sart of Baltimore street to Barnum'a hotel, ut to walk it with that flower robe, grace ful mantilla and tin? feet of the deep and dark-eved beauty would be a painful piece of pedestrianism. What she lacks in walking he makes ud in talking. Whew ! bteam and electric conversation is nothing to a Mad' rid belle's tonuuo. on topics of costume at least. The brilliant way in which she criti cised "enor Americano and Senor J uan In' bm. aa she stvled her previous John Bull guest, was, in the spasmodic language of Walt Whitman, "a caution to snakes "Does Benor Americano live on the Pil crim's rock when at home?" 1 reply, in all simplicity, that I do not, and ask why she puts sucn a puritanical ques tion. "Oh, Senor is so cold and rigid in saying but one ves and one no, when at least we want a dozen." And. by my troth, she does dash her sis aud her warns about most lavishly. There is not a semicolon in this belle's sentences. to sav nothing of a period. But what a for .t of points of exclamations! We alight at "round the corner, and there I am pre sented to mamma first, who then presents me to papa, who in turn presents me to his son and his five daughters, each of whom he occially desi&nates by Christian name, aa if 1 were a census-taker. However, he does not, nor do they, allude to aires, for a pretty girl in Spain has no age! Nor has she in Balti more. Beauty is ever young. The invaria ble vis-arts sitting takes place and chocolate goes round and down marvelously auick. Ihese people can beat a big- nor BliU in rapidly hiding hot chocolate, cup after cud. W ith an amount of flowing hos pital ity every member of the family tells me emphatically that the house is at my disposal. and, in generous words, almost excel the cul tured Calitorman. whose hospitality is con' veved in the request to "come in and break his furniture!" In fact, everything in the house is at your disposal, from the chocolate to the crvinir infant, who has no clothes on Children costume here is very cheap, and cooler than the chocolate, and very much more classic. The best people prefer to have the dear little dusky ones trot about unin cumbered with the fashions of diminutive 1'arisian ladies and gentlemen. 1 suppose "nature s dress is loveliness, as Tom Moore says about Mora Creena's costume; but tnen there is such a thing as n Quid nimU. A little of this costume goes a long way par ticularly if the little, sweet babe is invited to sit on your knee and play with your watch-chain, and want to see the "wheels go wound." like the renowned Helen' Ba bies. An oily nude infant on your best black pants is rather impressive, and you come away a man ot mark, and remark. Has any ono ever seen a Spanish belle sew? I never have: even so-so. Of the half dozen beauties in this group, not one of them could put a thread through the eye of a needle half as eaav as the biblical camel could go through it. No one of them ever stitched in all her lire. Two only knew how crochet-work was done, but never did it. I know a man in the logal profession, not a hundred miles from Monument cauare. that could beat them all at needle and thread and nerron-boning and back-stitching, etc. Their entire lives nave been ssent in reading French novels, unrav elinn French motlisU riddles of dress and the bills. They toil not, neither do they spin, and yet Solomon in all his glory is nol I trust never will be equal to ol j or a dozen of them What lilies of the valley! What daffy downdillie! Yet not one would refuse to be a housewife! Young man, don't come here tor a helpmate. You can do better at home They can sing after a fashion; they can play tbe piano fairly well, and strum the guitar like angels; but to patch your pantaloons, they would strugelo and "die in the breach,' absolutely defeated faihtfost They can paint ia water-colors all the "still-life" your imagination may desire, but to boil a dish of sweet potatoes would be a case ot "not water and no food," aa was the event with Briet man s belle. A Madrid beauty is not a joy forever, and if she keeps on as she is she never will be. A brewery aturaea. M iLWAUkEK, Win., December 22 1 a.m. About hall-pant twelve o'clock this morning a fire broke out in Beet's Chestnut street General E. C. Walthall. Grenada Sentinel: "It will be seen that our distinguished fellow-citizen, General hi. C Walthall, is rapidly gaining ground for the next United States senator. We mention tbe fact because first, he is our choice; second, because he is the choice of Grenada county; third, because we believe he is the choice of the State, and because we believe that he ib better Qualified, all things considered, for tbe place than any other of the great men whose names have been put forward as candidates, and we do this without General Walthall's knowledge or consent, aa others all over the State have done and are still doing. The sovereign people of Mississippi have resolved to place him where bis great name ana emi nent talents can be exerted in their belief. and we sanction their behest with all of our heart. What a errand combination! What a stately union! What towering strength! Lamar and Walthall What State in the Union could present such a pair? .So let us have these two prominent statesmen side by side in the congress of taa United states, and Mississippi, with her able delegates in the house, will be the foremost State in the Union." The New Spanish Ministry Becoming unpopular. London. December 21. All special dis patches from Madrid agree that the ministry of Canovaa del Castello is becoming daily more and more unpopular. General Martinez Campos, who has heretofore favored concilia tion, is now openly hostile to(the government in conaeauence ot the dismissal ot tne gen erals who had previously withdrawn their resignations at bis request. One of the dis missed generals, on Saturday, gave a banquet to General Martinez Campos and thirty other officers, together with a number of colonial members of the chamber of deputies. The fund started by tbe Fxaaro newspaper. for the relief of the poor in Paris, has reached one million francs. Severe weather continues to prevail here. Several deaths have occurred in the streets from cold and privation. The Seine is pass able afoot at several points within the city. Paul de Cassagnac, in an article in the Pays. proposes another six months mourning tor the Prince Imperial, on the ground that his place in tbe party and the dynasty has not yet been filled. England Easy A boat Affairs at Cabnl. London. Decembes 21. A disptch from Candahar says: "The news from Cabul ex cites neither surprise nor apprehension. The tribesmen hitherto occupied in preparing their lands for the summer crops are now free from labor for three months, and thus a long excitement may be expected to last. No attempt ought to be o.ade before spring to do more than hold our position. General Stewart's command on the whole line from Dadur to Candahar consists of nine thousand and seventy-five men. The tribes along the line are auiet. The viceroy ot India telegraphs to-day: "General Bneht reoorts the movement of re inforcements all along the line. General Gough marched yesterday for Cabul. Azma- tuellaha Khan Ghulzai, the chief of Tugh- man. wbo led in the desultory attacks noon General Gough'a command, ia reported wounded. His followers appear to be de serting him. Reinforcements have been sent to Dukka. in consequence of the report that the Mohunds are assembling in that vicinity." Ouray baa Vailed to Prod ace his Pris oners. Lo Pinos. Col., December 20, via Lake City, December 22. Ouray has just arrived from the camp of the White river Utes, and announces to the commission that he was unable to effect the surrender of the prisoners demanded by the commission. Ouray has given the White river Utes until the twenty- third instant to deliver up tbe prisoners; this is nis Ultimatum, hdu h uut ueuvercu uy luai time he will call for troops to assist them in a war against Douglas and hia tribe. Ouray says the feeling is very strong against giving up the Indians, and he is of opinion that the war taction will prevail. Uurav has aone all in his power to carry out the peace policy of the government, and, having tailed, is ready to assist the war department whenever it shall commence operations. New Yohk, December 22. The following rnhla d is natch has been received by Dr. Philip E. Donlen. one of the secretaries ot the Parnell reception committee: Queemstowm, December 21.

All the weaitny irisnmen in the city will be personally canvassed for subscriptions, and the committee are sanguine of success, as all the Irish organizations are taking an active part in the movement.
