Washington, June 2. Miss Folsom
arrived swfetv in Washington shortly
a ter 5 :30 o'clock tlrs uioraing, aud
was met by Col. Lamont. There very
few persons in the fca'timore and Po
tomac depot when the train arrived,
although it was broad daylight. Tn
train was composed of four cars and
President Roberts's private car, the
latter being occupied by Mies Folsom
and her party. Whils Col. Lamont
was hurrying down the platfcrm Mr.
Benjamin FohoiH stepped out on the
raar end of the car. Ha was dressed
in a mixed suit cf brown, a white
derby, and carried a dark goring over
coat on his arm. Miss FuUora pres
ently alighied. She was dress d in
bin k, and wore a wrap of the same
co'or to protect her from the morning
air, a t tylinh hat trimmed with white
and black ribbons, and black kid
gloves. She is of medium size, and
her manner was shy and restless. She
wa? escorted by Col. Lamont to te
rairiane and driven direct to the White
House with Mrs. Folsom. who was
dressed in black and looked a little
tired, and Mrs. Rogers of Syracuse.
There was a little delay owing to the
number of English-looking hat boxe,
fhawl straps and other bundles which
had to be looked after. Conductor R.
Mitchell, who was in cha'g4 of the
train, said that the jonrnev was quiet
and devoid of incident There wa a

ThsWhite-IIouse was entirely clrssd
to visitojs to-day, and th uiual after
noon tecert on by the Pres'dent was
emitted. Inide all was buitle and

Ot,b ldings there have been at
tie White House, eight in all, but
never before to-day hs the highest
dignitary in the land bowed his head
wilhin its historic walls to receive Jthe
blessing of the ihurch on his utjion
in tin holy bonds of rratrimony.
From the v-ry dawn of the wedd ng
day the city seemed alive to the ap
proaching event. Little knots ot
idlers talked it over on I lie side waits
in front of ihe hotels, sedate matrons
gossiped as they passed along the
Ktreets and ljevies of laughing girls
speculated a out the coming
momentous c remony If there be
truth in the ancient adage, a happy
bride will rcig i in the W'hi e Iluu e,

gray and cheerless sky and shadows
resting on the eartd, yet as it grew
older the elements seemed o relent,
and little by little the sun forced its
rays through the unwilling clouds
uniil its broad b ams fell in generous
abundance on the soft green
sward of the trim park encompassing
the whole house, bringing out in high
relief 'he simple ye- stately white col
umns of the time-honored home of
Presid-nts, cry alizing in prismatic
hues t'm sparkling spray of the foun
tains aud cresting with gold the foliage
cf the gran t old trees. Many were
the curious glances ilut sought to

grounds Little or nothing in tho ap-.

The still and mnrky haze of the early
afternoon hid now wholly given place
to clear skies and warm, southerly
breezes, wh le yellow, shnting sun
beams filtered through the foliage of
the park and made flickering pictures
upon the velvety turf beneath The
great fountain did its best to attract
ttlention, spouting its cool sprav to
ihe top of its granite basin, a"d dow

green filled tho marginal gaps in the

avenue occupied by lawn-c'ad
gardens, while half the young lovers
in the townstirred by the commin
sympathy which etirs the romantic
sus' eptihiliti s of the sixty millions,
took tho win ling walks in the line of
their evening promenade and specu
lated upon the affections which are
supposed to have filled thn hearts of
the bride ami groom. On the wulkn

was thoroughly Democratic, and rag

were watched with interest, and their
names were whispered by tho more
knowing to the companions. Sud
denly the strains of the wedding
march floated through the open win
dows and there was a general excla
mation from the crowd outside, "The
service has begun." Then there camo
a tantaliz tig hush within the walls,
which was soon ended by the strains
of the "liridal Chorus," from Lohen
g in, and it was thereby known that
the ceremony was over. One by one
the lights sprung up at the windows,
and the great huroera on the port co
cast their effulgence over the pave
ments The scene resembled a sum
mer night's festival, and the crowd
gave itse'f up to the enjoyment of the
delightful music. With "short inter
missions, the orchestra rendered tho
following select ons: Bolero, "Son La
Rosa," by Marianna; ' Invitation, a
la Vulse, Weber; "Spring Song,"
Mende ssohn; roma 'ce, "'Bright Star
of Hope," Rohandi; Mosaic, " De

About i:30 o'clock the wedding
