THE EXCURSION SEASON. These bright Summer days bring the veterans face to ;ace with the annual festival and excursion sea son. Among the affairs already announced are the Starin excursion, the excursion ot Devin Post, of Brooklyn: the third annual stag party of E. D. Morgan Boat, and the afternoon and evening picnic ot Koltes Post. Of course the most important of these to veterans in general is the excursion yearly tendered to the veterans by their staunch friend Mr. John H. Starin. It will take place 021 Friday next. The Committee in charge consists of a large number of prominent New York and Brooklyn comrades, headed by Past Commander J. W. Jacobus as Chairman, and Comrade William J. Trimble as Secretary, it is probable that the same number ot barges will be used as last year, and that the points o', embarkation will be the same, but due notice will be given in the daily papers concerning these particulars. The headquarters boat will leave Pier Mo. 18 North River, at ihe foot of Cortlandt street, at 9.30 A. M. These affairs have always been highly enjoyable in the past and the approaching excur sion is looked forward to with much eagerness by comrades and their families. Mr. Starin has so often been praised for his patriotic and liberal spirit that further encomiums would be mere repetition. Bis best thanks have a lasting founda tion in the hearts of the old soldiers. E. D. MORGAN POST. At the regular encampment of Morgan Post, held on Friday evening last, three new comrades were musrered iu. among them Mr. Chapmaq, the State Superintendent oi Instruction in New Jersey.

Application should bo made at once, as tickets ate being rapidly taken up. Comrade Ricimrdkbn's Morgan Post Band will fur nish the music, HtS TERRIBLE WOUND. Tlfh proverbial ii gratitude of Republics Was tteVer better exemplified than in the case of Captain William Fowler, well-known in Grand Army and Mascni’c circles. Very few of even the intimate Yrfarda of Captain Fowler are aware of the fact that ■fee was terribly wounded at the beginning of the Mexican war. Yet such is the case, and he has never received one penny of compensation from the government. When one of the first regiments of volunteers for the campaign in Mexico was being raised, Captain Fowi- r, then a lad, went down to the City Hall Park to enroll his name. He was drawn up in line along with other would-be heroes, when suddenly he feit a strong grasp upon bis coat collar. Look ing around, he discovered that his captor was no less a person than his father. ’* "What are you doing here inquired tko latter. " Going.to enlist," sen tentiously remarked the son. “Going to enlist, •U ejaculated the old gentleman. “Well, I*ll en list you in the Home Guard. Git!" Just tiien the paternal leg Was drawn back and the paternal foot was launched forward with the force'Of a hundred ton gun. A ■substantial boot came into close con tact with tire southerly extremity of the embryo ’Captain's spinal column with a dull thud." He Uros > gracefuly into the air and landed in aheap on the Sidewalk which lines the westerly side of Broadway, The remains were conveyed home on a ; wtTetcher. Mexico was conquered in a short space of time, during most of which, the captain took his wpoon victuals in a starrdr&g position. Despite Lid having born 1 © such a conspicuous part tn tDe war, the gallantry and sufferings of the young 'hero received no recognition from the government. But his soul is still overflowing with patriotism aud 4ov •of country. Isgratitude “ cannot stale his in finite variety. * As Gaptain Fowler himself tells this story as though be believed it, there is no rea» ’son lor outside criticism. But with rare self-abuo egation he announces that be is perfectly willing to -display his honorable scars to all disbelievers. IN HOT WATER. Department ‘Commander Joseph I. Sayles, seems to be getting himself into particularly bet water. It is said on good authority that charges and speci fications apainst'the Department Commander and his Acjutant*General, O. P. Clarke, have been for warded to National Headquarters. It is -said that the charges are based upon the alleged fraudulent voting in the recent encampment. But this is not all. The June number of the Railway Magazine, says that it has been informed that Commander Sayles made it a condition to pas senger agents of various roads who sought his en dorsement, that be be given eight free passes to San Francisco and return, and that no-charge should be made to him or hie party for meals or sleeping berths. It is, also, asserted that be asked for regu lar excursion tickets in order that the boys could not “tumble to his racket." If Commander-in- Chief-Burdett has any spirit of honesty and fair dealing about him he will order an investigation of ■this'alleged despicable transaction at once. The scandalous developments in this department during the past two or three months will doubtless result in defeating the aspirations of all New York candidates for the position of Commander-in-Chief. And it is well that it should be so, for this Depart ment needs a thorough overhauling and renovation ! beforo new honors are conferred upon it. And it is equally certain that nine comrades out of ten agree that the past career of Corporal James Tanner does •not flt him for the task. The other candidate, General Reynolds, of Roches ter, is a high-toned and honorable-comrade, but he 4s, unfortunately, supported by the present Depart ment Commander and his official family. This is enough to damn the best candidate that the world ever saw. What is neededmow is a Western business man who has no politcal ax to grind, whose honesty is unimpeached, and who will conduct the adminis tration of Grand Army affairs with the same fidelity that be would exercise in his own business. McQUADE’S TRIP TO UTICA. General J.ames McQuade Post left this city for Utica on the morning of May 29th, arriving in that city shortly after 5 o’clock next morning. The vet erans were greeted by the booming ol cannon as the train rolled into the depot, where they.found John F. McQuade Post of Utica awaiting them. They were escorted to the Butterfield House where they partook of breaklast, after which carriages were procured and the boys were shown the city. At 11 o’clock the two posts boarded a special train and went to Trenton Falls, where, after being wel comed in an eloquent address by beuator Ccgges hall, which was responded to by Commander Fran cisco, a magnificent lunch whs provided, to which f ull justice was done. After spending some time in viewing the falls the posts returned to Utica. In the evening both posts attended divine service at the Church of the Redeemer and listened to an able sermon by the pastor, Rev. T. B. Ro b. On return ing from church Commander Francisco received a dispatch containing the sad news of the death of his mother in Hobokeo, N. J. He immediately started for home after turning over the command ol the post to Past Commander Isador Isaacs. The next morning the post formed in front of the Butterfield House, and with the handsome floral tributes intended for the grave of General McQuade, and General Barnum and Senator Coggeshall in the centre, was photographed in a body. The comrades were then escorted to their place iu the line by the Utica Citizens’ Corps and John F. McQuade Post. They were loudly applauded along the line of march and also the fine file and drum corps. After the pa rade the posts marched to St. Agnes Cemetery, where the grave ol General McQuade was decorated. Com mander Isaacs being in charge of the services. Ad dresses were delivered by Senator Coggeshall and General Barnum. Fully 10,1)00 people were in at tendance. Returning to the city the post was es corted to the armory of the Utica Ciiizens’ Corps for lunch. In the evening the “ vets." were given a reception and banquet, at which speeches were made by Commanders Dagwell and Isaacs. Major Bright, General Barnum, Senator Coggeshall, A. Q. M. General Koehler and others. At half past ten o’clock in the evening the boys marched to the depot and were soon homeward bound. The party consisted of fifty-six members of the post, a drum and file corps of thirty-five boys and a Citizens’ Auxiliary Corps of twelve. The comrades speak in ti e highest terms of the treatment they received in Utica. They were not allowed to spend a penny, not even for a shave or to have their boots blacked. Their money was in vari. b y refused on the ground that it was either ** counterfeit " or “ Confederate scrip." They feel so grateful to their Utica comrades for their kind- that on Wednesday evening last a commit tee consisting of Commander Francisco, Past Com mander Isaacs, Dr. C-arke, Adjutant Fancher, Com rades Delany, White, and others, were appointed to procure a suitable testimonial to be presented to X F. McQuade Post and the Utica Citizens Corps. What the testimonial will be cannot now be di vulged, but will be made known at the proper time. The names of the comrades forming the committee are a sufficient guarantee that the gift will be worthy both of those who present it and of the recipients. ENDORSING GEN. FITZ JOHN PORTER. At a regular meeting of Oliver Tilden Post, held at their headquarters, Morrisania, on the Bth inst., ©n motion of Comrade Murphy and seconded by Past Commander Rate, it was “ Resolved, That the thanks of this post be ten dered to Gen. Win. J. Sewell, now U. 8. Senator, representing New Jersey in the Senate of the Uni ted States, at Washington, D.C., for bis noble, man ly and able efforts to obtain for Major-Gen. Fitz John Porter, former Commander of the Fifth Army Corps, that justice so long denied, and of which he was deprived by sentence of court-martial in 1868. Side by side with our lamented Generals Grant, McClellan, Kilpatrick, and with Generals Sherman, Schofield, Terry, Gerry, Sigel, Sewell, Howard, Av erill, Jackson, Rosecrans and Sickles, we earnestly desire to record the fact that, as veterans of the late war, many of us who served under Gen. Porter and know his brave, patriotic and chivalrous ac tions as an able commander, can bear testimony to his anxiety to meet and engage the enemy on July 29th and 30th. 1862. The fact that one-third of the Filth Army Corps was either killed, wounded or captured fully attests the fact. •• At the last session of Congress, in 1883, both the U. S. Senate and House of Representatives passed the act relieving General Porter from his unjust sentence, but it was vetoed by President Arthur. The time' for such action is passed and as the House has again passed the bill by a large majority, we, as Union soldiers and sailors, knowing no North, no South, no East, no West, regardless of party ties or political affi.iations, most respectfully request the U. S. Senate to confirm the action of the House and render justice so many years delayed to a brave, able and persecuted soldier, and efface the disgrace from the records of the Army archives." GOING TO GETTYSBURG. The Seventy-third Regiment, N. Y. Yds. (Second Fire Zouaves) Veteran Association, has completed its arrangements for the trip to Gettysburg on July 2d, to attend the reunion ot the Third Army Corps, and will be accompanied by its drum and fife corps.

Upon arriving in Washington it was as signed to the Excelsior Brigade, Hooker’s Division, Third Army Corps. The regiment was always with the Army of the Potomac, taking an active part in all its engagements (excepting Antietam) from the siege of Yorktown to the surrender of Lee. In es caping the battle of Antietam the regiment more than balanced the account by being engaged in (he battles of. Bristow Station, Second Bull Run and Chantilly; under Gen. Pope. The feature of the trip to Gettysburg will be the marking of the P°®i" tiou held by the regiment near the Peach Orchard, where in-the near future it is intended toerecta monument to the fifty-one members of the regi ment who are buried on the battlefield. A delega tion from the Volunteer Firemens’ Association will accompany the Zouaves.

J. Holmes, Sr., Vic© Commander Samuel Reeder, and a prayer was offered by Rev. G. B. Reimensnyder. of the East Fifteenth street Lutheran Church of this city. Fully 5,000 people repaired to the green in front of the vault, and listened in a silent and reverential manner to the oration of Rev. Reimensnyder, which was a full Afid comprehensive review and summary of the life and services of the hero. After the oration the post was escorted to Taylor’s Hall, where it was formally received in a very neat and appropriate manner and welcomed to the hospitalities of Trenton by Commander Clugston, of Bayard Post. Commander W. J. Holmes made a fitting response. After these exercises, all sat down to a bountiful repast prepared by the ladies of Trenton,which was soon demolished by the hungry veterans, and none did better service »n this respect than Comrade Ettinger, the Spring street butcher, who caused many of the ladies to think that he would produce a famine. The collation over speeches were made by Holmes, Past Commander Forbes, Sr. Vice-Comniandef Cole, Comrade McKinn, and last but not least Senior-Vice Commander Reeder, who was particularly flattering to the handsome ladies and large vegetable produc tions of New Jersey. Resolutions were passed thanking Bayard Post and the citizens of Trenton for their kind hospitality. Prominent among tno features of McClellan Post’s display were the color sergeant’s daughter, Miss RobiitA*>a, attired as the Goddess qf Liberty; Miss Belle CtWAliver, represent ing the Daughter of the and Master Robinson dressed as a Continental soldier. The whole affair passed off la the most approved man ner, not a single event occurring to mar the oo . casion, and all Returned home in the finest order ■ and full of best wishes toward Trenton, its ntrble men and handsome women.

JUNE 13, 1886. It makes the blood of the old soldiers boil when they see such a man as “Accidental" Commmissioucr Squire removing an old volunteer fireman and veteran of the war from a position long held and faithfully filled to make room for a political "heeler.’’ This is just what he did when he re moved “Marty" Reuse from the place he has so long held as Keeper of the City Hall. Grand Army men may have a chance to “get square" with poet Squire at no distant day. During the past week the drum and fife corps of th© Veteran Association of the Second Fire Zouaves has been taking part in the representation of the play, “ One of the Bravest," at the People’s Theatre.

The entertainment, cake and ice cream festival of Womans Veteran Relief Corps, auxiliary to Veteran Post, which occurred on Monday evening last, was owe of the most successful affairs of the season. The hall was not sufficiently large to hold the people. The musical and literary programme was first-class in every particular. The recitations rendered by the Misses Kelly, Salees and Pack wood, were superb. The singing by Mr. Daniel Quinn, W. Watson, and E. F. Marshall, was very fine, and the piano music by Miss Stephens was remarkably good. Master Monte Russell, three years of age, performed some very difficult feats on the drum, and was a great surprise to everybody.

It is anticipated that a good time will be had and 100 mosquito nets have been ordered for the occasion, The lean comrades do hoi expect id receive A vigorous assault by the enemy, the mosquito; but the fat ones are making great preparations to repel in case they are attacked.

The annual festival of the Fifth New York Volun teer Veteran Association (Duryea Zouaves) will take place at Sulzer’s East River Park, on Tuesday even- | ing, June 29. All comrades and friends are cor- | dially invited. The Bureau of Employment and Relief, Room 4, City Hall, is the scene of daily activity. Such ster ling comrades as Commander McEntee, E. J. Atkin- Theodore Feldstein, and many of like quali ties, daily devote a portion of their valuable time to the good work. During the past week a letter was received from Comrade Joel, of the Grand Army Gazette, commending the efficiency of the bureau and containing a donation of $lO to “help along." This good -example should be followed by many others. Major Ralph H. Olmstead, a Mexican War Veteran, who wdnt out with the Twelfth N. Y. Vols. during the late war, and was afterward a captain, a major in a New York Cavalry Regiment, died at his resi dence in West Hoboken on Monday night after a shert illness. He was a member of General W. S. Hancock Post. He was buried in New York Bay Cemetery on Thursday last. Delegations from Hancock, Mansfield and Abel Smith Post’s attended the services. goitre HUMORS OF THE POLICE. A Sound Steep-He Didn’t Knew—Couldn’t ba Found—A French Loaf as a Club—Color Blind—Can Roundsman Montgomery See Arc und the Corner?—The Evidence Against Montgomery—Sound Logic of French — Seemed to Have Sat Down on a Pin. There were fe’w cases of interest ‘tip for trial. CONSCIENTIOUS. Regan, of the Sixth Precinct, should have got back from past at 12:20; he did not appear in the station-house till 12:55. He said he was anxious to see if all his store doors were secure before going to bis relieving point. Sergeant >Oolgrove said the relief went to the re lieving point and then all -over Regan’s post, and never saw him. HIS WIFE TO BLAME. Perkins, of the Twebty-ninth Precinct, was late at the 8 A. M. roll-call. “I overslept myself," said the officer. “Whose fault was that ?" asked the Commis sioner. ••The wife," replied Perkins. “How?" “ My wife generally wakes me; she slept in, too." “ Eight in the morning, and both still asleep ?" “It was unusual," said the officer. “Won’t hap pen again.’’ A LAME LEG. Graham, of the Twenty-seventh Precinct, had a lame leg and failed to report sick. He said he sent a boy to the station-house to report that he was laid up. “Where is th© boy ?’’ asked the Commissioner. “In Washington." “Where did you get him “ He belonged to the house where I board." “What’s his name ?’’ “Lawrence something." “ Did the boy ever reach the station-house ?*’ “ Don't know.” PARTLY TRUE. McGrath, of the Twenty-second Precinct, said the charge was partly true, that Captain Killlea could not find him for an hour and twenty minutes. The post was one side of Forty-second street, from Sixth to Tenth avenues. Several witnesses saw the of ficer, but the captain said he went three times over the post, then got Officer O’Neil to cover it at four o'clock. At five o’clock O’Neil met McGrath. CHILDISH. Bernstein played baby on the two charges pre ferred. He was across the street on the first charge. He came over on his own post when call ed, with a bundle. What the bundle under bis arm was was not stated, but it was understood to be a French roll loaf that would look in the distance like a club, but that ho could nibble and make look “ beautifully less by degrees.’’ The second charge was more serious. On Deco ration Day, instead of returning to the station house, when time was up, to be discharged and sent home, he discharged himself. “ Why was this?" asked the Commissioner. “I saw the men from other pricincts going home, and I ‘ went,’ " said the officer. “ Wasn’t it proper for you to go back to the sta tion-house and report for duty, or be discharged ?” “I saw the others go home.” “ How long on the force ?” “ Twelve years." “Didn’t you know it was your duty to go back to the station house to report to be discharged ?” “ No, not when my day off." The roundsman said he had charge of twenty men to return them to the station-house. The officer dropped out of the ranks on the way to the station house, and made for home. Hensler of the Thirteenth Precinct, in the same box, said he understood when they were told to fall in, it was to again fall out and go home. He was sorry for the mistake, it would not occur again. TRAMPS—A SECOND THOUGHT. Smith and Bergin, of the Thirty fifth Precinct, were timed fifteen minutes in conversation. They said they were talking about the trouble they had to drive the tramps out of the cars. Bergin called Smith to help him bounce them. Roundsman Terry said the two were a hundred feet away from the car. They said nothing then about tramps stealing free rides. They stood quietly by a pile of railroad ties. They were the only “ tramps " he saw. Smith said he couldn’t see how the roundsman could see a hundred feet in the dark. The Commissioner said they were color blind. Smith then admitted they might have chinned five minutes. HOW HE NABS ’EM. Roundsman Montgomery, of the Twenty-third Precinct, is one of the most misleading on the force. He dissolves himself from view for a night or two, may be home abed for all that is known, and then after he wakes up himself, there is an awaken ing of the men. He “ double banks ” them, and of course he is sure to catch somebody after his lay off. He went for Ryan, charging him with being eighteen minutes off post. Ryan said he had instructions to look out for the Third avenue railroad. He saw two men dash through Ninety-third street at break-neck speed. Thinking there was something up he dashed after them, and ran two blocks. When he got there he found it was a horse down and returned to his post. The roundsman said the officer on the post that Ryan ran on said he saw no trouble, and the rounds man didn’t see any. Of course ho couldn’t if two blocks off. And yet he said if there had been trouble about the horse two blocks off, round the corner, he would have seen it. CALLED OFF. Stuter was off post on Third avenue. He said the charge was true. He was called off by a rap. He was gone about five minutes. Roundsman Montgomery said the officer made no explanation to him, further than he heard a rap. The officer on post told Montgomery and Mont gomery said he did not hear it. A boy, clerk in a grocery store, said he was put ting up a shutter and let a stick fall, and that sounded like a rap and brought the officer, who asked what was the trouble. “This officer beard it, the boy said he made it. It may be a put-up job, but the evidence is against you, roundsman," said the Commissioner. ON A BARREL. Kearns, of the Thirty-first Precinct, was found sitting on a barrel. Farley said the officer’s face was to him. The officer said his back was to him and his foot up on the barrel fixing his shoe. The Commissioner remarked that there was a great difference between the hams of a man and his face. A PIN. Branigan, of the Fourteenth Precinct, denied being sitting in a watchman’s shanty. He said at 12 o'clock a button burst off his pants. He put a pin in. The pin got out and worked down into the shoe, and the pricking of the pin made him limp. He went in the shanty to get rid of the pin; but he didn t sit. Roundsman Campbell said it was a square sit—he seemed to be sitting on a pin when he jumped up. Gbocees’ Excursion to Europe.— Over two hundred grocers sailed for Europe by the North German Lloyd steamer “ Elbe" yesterday af ternoon. Most of the excursionists were New York and Brooklyn grocers. There were, however, a number from Western cities. Among the party were C. F. Bussing, President of the New York Grocers’ Union, and C. A. Mettler, President of the Brooklyn Grocers' Association. The tickets are good for one year. A grand reception will be given on the steamer at arrival in Bremen. July 4 a German-American na tional picnic will be held at the Tivoli in Bremen. July 6 parties of fifty will leave Bremen on a tour through Germany, France, England, Austria, Italy, Belgium. Switzerland, and Holland. The North-German Lloyd pier in Hoboken was handsomely decorated yesterday. At noon a colla tion was served, Mr. Henry Bischoff was master of the ceremonies, Squbam and Asks fob Mercy.— Harry Harris through his counsel pleaded guilty to larceny.. His counsel said they interposed a plea of gufltys it was the first time the boy had been arrest ed. He had come of very respectable parentage, and the complainant desired the court to be as lenient as possible. Beside, he was a most important witness against the receivers of stolen goods, and had been cited to appear beiore the Grand Jury. “Was he in your employ?" asked Justice Kil breth. “Yes, sir,” replied Mr. Fenerstein. “Is this the only case against him ?" “No, sir." The court remanded him to be held in another court. —M—■MMWHMM—IHIHIWIII Co SUMMER UNDERWEAR AND HOSIERY. LADIES’ Opera Lisle Ohreai> Hosiery, in Solid Ootors; also, Blach and Colored Balbriggan.
