Y., Jaly 23 A few annates before S o'clock. Doctors Dcugl&, Shrady and Sands stood on tbe cottage veranda conversing of the con dition of Gen- Grant, and discussing tbe probabilities of his deatb and tbe limit of life left the sick roan. M rs. Sartoris and atenographer Damson were conver sing at a little distance when he noticed tbe narse stepped has ily upon thepiazz and spoke q iletly to the physicians. He told bem he thought the General was very near, to death.- Tbe medical men hastened to tbe room where the sick man was lying and approached bis side' : In. stantly npon seeing tbe patient's face Dr Douglas ordered the family to be sum moned to tbe bedside. Hasta was made and Mrs Grant, Mr. Jonas add wife. U S. Grant,, Jr., and wife and Mr. Col Grant were qnickly beside tbe doctors at tbe sick man's bed. Mrs. Sartoris and Mr. Dswson followed the doctors in from the piszsa, aod tbe entire family was present except Col. Fed Grant. Hasty summons were sent forhim, but be entered the sick room while the mes senger was searching for him. Tbe Col onel seated himself at tbe bead of the bed with bis left arm rest ng upon th pillow above the bead of the General, who was breslblng rspidly and with sBghtly gasping respirations. Mrs. Grant, calm, but with intense ag itation heroically anppresseil, took a seat close by the bedside. She leaned slightly upon tbe Colonel, resting npon her right elbow and gazed with tear-blinded eyes into the Get-eral's face. Sue found there however no token of recognition, for the sick man was peacefully and painlessly passing into another life. ' Mrs. Sartoris came behind ber mother, and leaning over ber sbonlder so witnessed the dose ct.a .life in which al e had constitut d s strong element of pride. Directly behind Mrs. Grant and Mrs. Sartoris, at a little distance removed, stood Drs. Douglas and Macrendy, spectators of a closing lire their efforts and counsel bad so pro longed. On the opposite of the bed from bis mother and directly befor ber stood Jesse Grsnt and U S. Grant, Jr , and near the .corner or me coi on toe same side as Jesse and near to each was Mr.. N E. Dawson.the General's stenograph er aad confidential secretary. At the root of the bed and gazing directly down iutn the General's faoe, was Mrs. Col. Fred Grsnt, Mrs. U. S. Grant, Jr., snd Mrs Jesse Grant, while somewhat removed from the family circle, Henry, tbe burse, and Harrison Tyrrell, the General's body servant, 'were -respectively watohlng the. closins life of tbe patient, their master Dr Newman bad repaired to tbe botel for breakfast and was not present. Tbe General's little 'Grandchildren, U S G-ant, JrM and Nellie, were sleeping the sleep of childhood id the nursery room above . Otherwise. Jhe entirefamily nod hops?hold were gathered at the bedside of the dying man. ' r , ; Barely Sammoned In Time. Tbe members of tbe group bad been summoned not a moment sooner than was prudent Tbe .doctors noted, on entering tb room and pressing to tbe bedside, tbst already the psrpitsn ttBge, which is one of nature a aignala of final dissolution, bad settled beneath tbe fin ger nails. The bsnd that Dr. Douglas lifted wss fast growing colder than It had been through tbe night. Tbe poise had fluttered, beyond the point . where the physician could distinguish it from tbe pulse beats In bis own finger tips. The restoration was very rapid and was a succession of shallow , panting inhala lations, hat bp6ily the approaching end was becoming clear of tbe rattling full ness of the throat and lungs, and as the respirations grew q'lick and more rapid at the close they also became less labor ed and almost noiseless. - One Comfort Left." ! , This fact was in its results a com'orl to the watchers by tbe bedside, to whom was spared the scene of an agonizing or other than a peaceful death. The wife, almost constantly stroked the face, fore, bead and hands of tbe dying General, and at times as tbe passionate longing to prevent the event so near would rise ithvn her, Mrs. Grant pressed both his hands.and leaning forward tenderly kiss ed the fsoe of the sinking man. Colonel Fred Great sat silently, bat with evident feeling, though his bearing was that of a soldierly on at the deathbed of a hero father. U S. Grant, Jr., was deeply moved, but Jesse bore the scene steadily, and tbe ladies, while watching with e checks, were silent, as befitted tbe dignity of a life such as was closing before tbem. The morning had pas ed five minutes beyond eight o'clock, and there-was no' ons of the s'rainel and waiting watchers bnt who could msrk the nearness of tbe life tide to its final ebbing. Dr. Douglas noted the nearness of the supreme mo ment end quietly approached ibe bedside and lent -above if, -and wtrlte be fttd so the sorrow of the gray-haired pbysician seemed closely allied with that ot the family. Dr. Shrady also drew near. It was 7 minutes after 8 o clock and the eyes of the General were closln?. His breithinz grew more hushed as the last functions of tbe heart and longs were hastening to the close of tbe ex-Presi dent's life A peacefol expression seem ed to be deepening in the firm and s rong lined face, and it was reflected as a closing comfort in tbe sad hearts that beat quickly under the stress of iov ing suspense. Peacefully Dying". A minute more passed and the Gene ral drew a deeper breath. There wss an exhalation like that of one relieved o long and anxious tension. The members of tbe group were impelled each a step nearer the bed end each waited to note tbe next respiration, but it did not cone then it never came. There was abso lute stillness in the room, and a hush of expectant suspense; no sound broke the silence save tbeetoging of the birds in the pines outs de tbe cottaee, and the measured throbbing of the engine that II night bad waited by the little mono tain depot down the slope. The End. 'It's all over," quickly spoke Dr. Don glas, and there came then heavily to each witness the realization that Gen. Grant was dead. Then the doctors -withdrew, the Burse closed the eyelids and composed tbe dead Uc neral'a head, after which each of the f- m ily group pressed to the bedside, one ader tbe other, and touched the-.r lips o oa tne qatet race so lately stilled. Dr. Shrady passed out npon the piss za and as be did so be met Dr. Newman hastening up the step. .- "He is dead," remarked Dr. Shrady quietly'.- The fact of having been absent from the tide of the dvinsi man and his family at the last was a cause of sorrow mi sad regret to the clergyman who had waited a'l night at the cot'age. He had . been summoned frm his heakfast A Moment too Late, and reached the cottage only in time to minister to the family sorrow and goze npon the scarcely hushed lips ot the dead General, to whom Dr Newman's love had hound him in such close ties and re lations. Those who saw and knew, and all who learned of the clergyman's ah sence from the dea'hbed qiickly spoke the impulse of heartj sympathy. THE PRESIDENT'S MA, HON.

Mi McGbbqor. N Y. July 23 With the death ot General Grant there passes away one of the greatest chleftians of modern times. Military critics may dif fer as to bis character and rank as military commander, but in tbe face o his achievements any attempt to belitt'e his mibVary compacity is idle. Juiced hy this standard, he held a ptace in the affections of tbe people of tbe country which was equalled by no one excoLl L'ncoln, and bis record as leader of the Union army, which crushed the rebel lion, will leave him an undying name in tbe proudest chapter of our history.
