He.nry A. Parsons, Jr. - - Editor THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 1873. Letter from Washington. Washington, D. 0.,) May 31st, 1S73. J The ceremonies at Arlington were never more impressive than yesterday, wbich fact shows that the interest of tho peoplo in the beautiful custom ot strew in flowers upon the graves of thoso who fell in defonce of their country is not declining. Twelve years ago Arlington was owned and occupied by Col. Kobt. E. Lee, who soon cast his fortuno with tho cause of the South and left his lands, to fight in defense of that cause. But Robert E. Lee, though a bravo man, and perhaps a conscientious man, was doomed to defeat and after the spring of 1861 he never set foot on his old estate. Now, twelve years have passed, General Leo has been gathered to his fathers, and Arlington is owned by the Government ho attempted to destroy, and is occupcid by Why, here has urown up a city, of nearly sixteen thousand inhabitants. Hut it is a quiet city, a very orderly city. It is n 'silent city or the dead.' Its inhabitants are the noble men who went forth to stay the traitor's hand, to save from dishonor tho flng that Robert E. Lee had do sorted The first thing the visitor observts upon appjoaching Arlington is the mag niSceut gateway, forty feet in height, built of red Sjncca sandstone, over the top of which is inscribed in letters of gold the following stanza : "On fame's eternal camping ground Their silent tents are eprc.ul, An glory guards with solemn round The bivouac of the dead." Upon the key-stone of tho areh sur mounting the gateway is this inscrip tion : "Here rests 13,815 of the 3 15, 555 citizens who died that their country might live." Passing through this gateway and up the hill by a uiee gravel road beneath the boughs of imuieusc trees which shade the entire way, we reach the old Lee mansion. This is a building hav- ing a front of about one hundred and fifty feet auJ a depth of fifty feet. To the rear are quite a number of one story buildings, doubtless iuteuded tor the do mestic servants, and quite a commodious stable. Stand. ng in front of the risi deuee we have a magnificent view of Washington and the broad aud peaceful Potomac. Prom here can be seen the Capitol building, the Treasury, White Houe, War and Navy Department 5uildiugs, Patent Office and General Post Office, tho Howard University, Soldiers' Home, the United States Insane Asylum, the Naval Observatory and the buildings on Arsenal Point. To the rear and right of the mansion is the cemetery. In that portion of the cemetery nearest the house is the tomb of the uuknown, a handsome monument of garnite, surmounted by four large cau Dons and a pile of cannou balls. A short distance from this is the grave of tha nffi.or i,;siics(, lu ranic among all those interred in this cemetery, marked by a neat marble mouument, bearing the inscription : "D. F. Colo, Major 107th Colored Infantry, died at Point of Rocks, Maryland, January 7, 18G5, agol 27 years. Florence." This moutmeut was erected by a young lady whoso first name was Florence, and to whom this officer was betrothed at tho time of his death. At tho head of each tiravo is a plain white board, upon which is painted in black letters the name, rank, company, regiment and date of death of him who rests beneath. Quite a large number of graves are marked by marble slabs and stones more oi less elaborately carved, placed there by tho personal frieuds of the deceased. The cemetary is laid off regularly", the graves being in straight rows with streets between them 'neatly graveled and kept in good condition. Yesterday the grounds were profusely decorated with the national colors and with flowers. A small flag was stuck in the earth at the head of each grave. There was also a wreath or a bouquet placed upon each mound marking the resting place of a Union Soldier. Did it not require too much space I would love to give a full description of the ceremonies of yesterday. They con sisted of musifi. instrumental, by the fa mous Marine Band, and vocal by a choir of five hundred singers, prayer, orations, the reciting of poems, the strewing of flowers etc. The oration by the Rev. T. DeWitt Tallmage was a most eloquent one, and is well worthy of publication in every journal in the laud. I will content, myself however, with giving one brief extract : "In all time to come, let this memorial day be kept. Strew flowers on the mar tyers' graves. Strew them on the head that ached, aud over tho hearts that bled, and over the feet that blistered iu the weary march. Oh, ye throng of de parted heroes ! Stoop down aud breathe this perfumo of a nation's thanks. Stoop down and take this kiss of a nation's love. Stoop down and hear this 6hout: of a nation's redemption. Speed on the day when War itself shall be buried the grim old breaker of hearts. Carry him out on an old rusty shield. Bury Lin sword with him. Heap on him stones and broken chariot wheels. Let widows aud orphans clap their hands, and the winds howl for his requim Tin's is the second Jcalh.' " President Grant headed the process ion that marched over the ground, scat tering flowers upon the graves. The day was clear and bright, and from fifteen to twenty thousand persons partici- dated. A valuablo silver mine is reported within one hundred miles of Milwaukee, Wis., in tho weetern part of Washington county, covering a large area. GENERAL NEWS. Hon John G.
