The buKUieK.s life of the city was entirely tmspended. The clercy, without respect to Hect, joined in the obhei plies, the bells of all the churches tolled a requiem, and the presence of the impuhico in the column which followed his funeral car, or attested their fealty to his memory.

The great audience stood while the impres sive scene was enacted. Following the bier came the widow, leaning on the ai m of ber brother, Mr. S. W. Morgan, followed by the other relatives, all in deep mourning. Thirteen pews to the right of the central aisle, were reserved for the family, while the vestry and members of the local com mittees occupied pews in front to the left. The pew occupied by the dead Vice-I'resi-dent in his lifetime was the tenth from the front, to the left of the middle aisle when facing the nltar. It was distinguished lim its complete envelopment in black cloth , and the (act that it was unoccunied. The church ih h modest brick structure, square and oblong, but commodious with al, Heating nine hundred people, but hold ing within its walls, in this instance, fully one thousand. Its sharply slanting roof is supported on brick columns forming part of the side walls, but is also sustained by two tiers of arches which spring from the right and left centers of tlie auditorium, meeting at the apex of the roof. Tlie in terior is naturally dark, being lit by dor mer and narrow sule w nulows all in stained gitths, a large field of the same filling in the space over the altar in the rear of the church. The main and side doors were heavily draped in black. The interior deco rations were plain but effective, consisting of a festooning of crape from the rentrm arches, the pulpit and chancel rail having a drapery of while and black intermingled. The central arches were completely drap ed, ami the sides of the church were panel ed in black. On the front interior walls of the church were two large designs of the (Ireefc eros,, in the prevailing sable color. The dark shrouding of the interior was re lieved by only three floral pieces, all hand some in desfgn. On the altar inside the chanrel rail was a plain cross composed entirely of white flowers, contributed by the ladies of the parish. On either side of the altar was a sheaf of wheat. On the face of the pulpit was a column of white roses, w ith purple flowers at one side, forming u ladder. At its base was the inscription ''September P.i, 1 -!'.," and at its top "No vember UTi, Is- " On the summit of the column was perched n white dove.

The first grand division was in line ready for the forward movement when tho cas ket was carried from the church. It was composed of State military companies, inarching independently, all offirem dis mounted. The liu sch Zouaves of St. Louis was the only company appearing in the line from outside the Stat1. In the second grand division, following the hearse, came a carriage containing Mrs. Thomas A. Hendricks, Mrs. S. W. Morgan, Mr and Mrs. Kit.hugh Thornton. The succeeding twelve carriages contained relatives ami near friends. Kx-t resident Haves occupied the next carriage, and was followed in regular order by the members of the Cabinet, U. S. Senators and Repre sentatives, Governors, and staffs, U. S. Judiciary, ex-U. S. Senators and Represen tatives, Tj.rN. military officers, State offi cers of lnd nun, followed by the ('residents and raeult.es or universities ami colleges, the Mayors of cities and other civil offi cials. The third division was composed of all non-military organizations. It was pre ceded by the local Irish-American organi sations, followed by the marching political clubs, which bad taken part in the recent i ret mcin wt i campaign. The fourth grand division was made up of local municipal organizations, including the Fire Hepartmcut. with their steam era heavily draped. The column took up its lino of march at 12:4-S p. nl., but its progress was retarded in tho business district owing to the block ading crowds, which far outnumbered the moving column. H proceeded slowly through the great masses of people on Washington afreet. The military organi sations attempted to march with company front, but were repeatedly compelled to break into columns of fours and move by the flank. The carriages were driven three abreast. The movement was slow, the bands playing dirges, making tho pro gress at times almost imperceptible until the column merged upon Merid ian street, a broad and handsome avenuo leading to the entrance to the beautiful Crown Hill Cemetery. The cortege moved on by the handsome homes of the weaJt.h v, whose windows and nidewalks were filled with great throngs standing respectfully. The broad thoroughfare stretched out into the country beyond the limits of the city, and when the head of the column came w ithin night of the cemetery, a mile dis tant, the Indianapolis Light Artillery be gun to fire minute guns, which was con tinued until the hearse approached the grave. Shortly before the column entered upon the final stage of its journey the sleet be gan to fall more sharply, accompanied by a cold wind. The carriages containing the mourners and notable participants were all closed against the inclemency of the weather. THE COLUMN ENTERED THE CEMETERY Under a splendid Rtone arch, completed yesterday, and was the fii st to pass under it. Winding through a thick grow th of beech and maple trees, the military divis ion came upon a large open view, aim approaching THE OPEN GRAVE On the Hendricks family lot, which occu pies the most commanding view of the grounds, turned to the left, and then again to the riglit, finally completely encircling the tract of which the Hendricks plat forms a part. It constitutes historic ground for Indiana. To the east rises the marbleshaft erected to the memory of General Jeffer son C. Davis. Immediately opposite He tho remains of Oliver I. Morton. A little to the north is the grave of General K. R. 8. Canby. To the northwest another piece of rising ground is dolled with simple head stones of seven hundred of Indiana's soldiers who lost their lives on the battle-field.

Th YftultirtB ambition and unblush ing lusurnnoe of some of the-o infant mining' enmpa remind in of a rood toty which a gentleman from Galves ton, now kbottt to eiignge iu mining here, told ma the other evening about Ml. Tom Ochiltree, of Texas. X don t msan to apply it to Silver Cliff, though I have not failed to discover traces ol the umi ariirit here. fcveivbiidy who hue been in Washington often since the reconstruction ot the South knows Tom Oohiltree, and he is not a stranger in New York. A good soldier, I believe, on the Confederate side, he became Kepublioan st th close of the war and a favorite of President Grant, who ap pointed him United States Marshal for Texas when that oII'k' was worth a good deal more mouej than it is now. Tlie Major's father was one of the most eminent jurists inTeiaa, before the war, and had a good deal of trouble with hie son, who, though not bad, was full of mischief. At length, when Torn approached young manhood, the old Judge deter mined to sober hiaa bv study, aud so took him into his own law ofltee, whor he kept him pretty closely at his books for about three year. Tom was a good scholar, mad satisfactory progrean, and was fmMly admitted to the bar aud taken into partnership by his father. A few months after this, the Judge, aa he was starting for Dallas one morning to attend a long session of the court, looked np at the old, weather-beaten sign, wnioh had boen above his office door for a qttavler of a oentury, and told Tom ho thought it m about tunc to have a new one, "and, Tom," he said, " suppose you attend to it, get a good sign, and have th nuui of the tirm paiuted on it." The old gentleman went to Dallas aud was gnu several days. returning, when he came in sight of the little frame office, he thought it looked strange, and riding nearer he found stretching clear across the building, an immense sign board, on which was painted in hug letters : " T. P. OCHILTREE AND FATHER, Counsellors and Attorneys at Law." Tom was at his desk deeply absorbed in working up a case, and never oould understand why th old man should have caused that sign to be taken down. Cohi ado Letter to Net York 2W6wn. Evading a Fare. Th stealing of a pin is apparently a slight oftenHe. Tet it may reveal char- acter as clearly as tlie tiieft of $100. ' Home years ago there lived in New York a shrewd old merchant named Aymar. Ha used to receive cargoes of mahogany and logwood, whioh wer sold at auo- 1 tion. i On one occasion a oargo was t be sold at Jerney City, and all hands start ed from the auctioneer's store to cross th ferry. When they were going through tli gate, Mr. Aymar noticed : one of the Lowest buyers slip through without paying th 5 ceuts fare. Il told the auctioneer not to take a bid j from that man. I ' Why," naid th auctioneer, with an ! expression of surprise, " I thought he j was good." j "Ho did I," answered Mr. Aymar: i "but I have ohauged my mind, and I i will not trust him $1." A few months proved th accuracy of the judgment of Mr. Ayuinr, for the slippery merchant failed, and did not pay 5 cents on the dollar. It does not by any mentis follow that business dis aster will come as a retribution to a dishonest trailer; but this is ceitaiu, that a uuiu who will steal even ss trilling a yum as would pay his fare in the hoisu car or the ferry-boat will cheat you out of a lm&i r sum if he Buds a safe opportunity, Women Clerks.

Troy Times: An arrangement has been made in Worcester, Mass., whereby the books in tho public library are placed at the disposal of school children during the regular school hours and are freely loaned to teachers, and scholars in con nection with their studies. An eminent clergyman was asked for a series of brief papers "on what he knew about preaching." Ho replied: "The papers required w ill be very brief ami very few, but if yon should ask me to tell you what I don't know about preaching, I would reply, life is too short. Vtirdio Inter Oeriin. The professorship of biology held by Professor Huntley in tho School of Science in South Kensington. London, has been abolished since he resigned. The salary was :i.2H0 a year, and the chair was considered "one of the few prizes open to biologists," so that its abolition finds little favor among men of science. Thn Baptist Weekly says: "As a mercenary measure, designed to lighten the burden of church building, memo rial windows are becoming somewhat popular; but the object is often too ap parent, and these transparencies are found to be suggestive of economical management rather than of hallowed memories of departed worth."
