The work of setting the base of the pedestal in
position has been pushed mpidly forward since
the granite arrived, and it was thought last even
ing that it would be completed by four o'clock this
morning. The delay in the arrival of the granite
has been very vexa-ious. The stone was prepared
at Rockland, Me., and the contract called for
its shipment on the 1st of Match. Instead of that
it was not s'-ipped until the 25th, aud then the
vessel was twenty days g the passage instead of
ten. In consequence 'he work of placing in posi
tion the forty laige gianite stencswas not begun
until let Thursday. A large corps of men have
been at work day and nigh; eve.- since, and last
evening they hid gotten into place all but
ths last tier of stones. The entire
base weighs one hundred ton, and is filled in the
centre with conoete. LieutenantHoxia has riven
his perso-ial supervision to the work, and it is due
to his energy that so much has been accomplished
in so short a time. It will make but little differ
ence whether the base is fully completed or not, as
the bare places can be d-aped about with flags.
The force of men woiked all night, and it is
thought that it will be completed in time.
DECORATIONS ABOUT THE SQUAEE.
The residences in the vicinity have been hand
somely draped with flags and buntiuf, and the
surroundings of Farragut Square have a decidedly
gala appea:ancc. All day yesterday theie were
little gioups of people standing about looking at
the workmen. As evening advanced it seemed to
Le the favorite resort for young promenading
couples, and the seats around wore well oc
cupied. The seating accommodations for the
spectators to day seemed to be ample, and put up
with special iefereiice to comfort. The seats on
the staging hnve backs, and all that is needed in
addition are cushions. The centre stand will ac
commodate 450 persons, and will be reserved for
the President and Cabinet, the orators, the sculp
tor, and the Diplomatic Corps. The stands to
the north and wufb. will accommodate 2,000
and will be reserved lor army and navy officers
and theh families and invited guests. When the
base of the statue is completed at each of the four
corners will be placed four-inch mortars erected
on bronze carriages. These were made of the
metal from the propeller of the Hartford, Forra
gut's flag-ship. The metal of the statue was also
obtained of this propeller.
Quartermaster Knowles, who was signal quar
termaster on board the Hartford, and lashed the
Admiral in the rigging at the battle of Mobile Bay,
will perform the duty of removing the veil from
the statue to-day.
General Sherman has requested officers of the
army in the city to assemble in full uniform at the
office of the General of the Army at half-past
eleven a. m. to-day to accompany the officers of
the navy to the unveiling of the Farragut statue.
THE POLICE ARRANGEMENTS.
A detail of 123 policemen, forty-five of whom
will be mounted under command of Major Brock,
has been made for duty at the Farragut statue. A
squad of mounted police will precede the pro
cession, and a detail, under command of a lieu
tenant, will accompany each division.

Mrs. Christiancy did not leave the house on
Christmas Day. Dr. French Lugenbeel, a brother
of Mis. Christiancy, was also examined. He testi
fied to her illness on Christmas Day, which was of
a nature common to women at certain periods.
He was in the house, he said, all day,
excepting a few minutes, when he went to the
post-office to mail a letter. No person called for
her in a carriage or any other way. Mr. Ingeisoll
on cross-examination, wished the witness to state
to whom the letter was addressed that he mailed.
Dr. Lugenbeel replied that it was a letter about
his own affairs, entirely personal, and declined to
answer the question. The counsel repeated the
interrogatory, and the witness said that unless he
could be given some good and sufficient reason
for answering such a question he would refuse to
do it. The examiner was then directed to write
out the question and certify the same to the Equity
Court; also, to ask that the witness be compelled
to give an answer to it. At this .point the ex
amination was adjourned until to-morrow.
No character in American history was
united more fully than that of David Glascoe. Far
ragut, a grand, honest, brave heart, with a simpli
city and artlessness of manner which won the love
of every true man. His history Is an eventful one,
and Is closely inferwoven with that of this country
at a period when civil war had embroiled the two
sections. He was bom at Campbell's Station, near
Knoxville, Tenn., July 5, 1601, and died at Ports
mouth, N. II., August H.1S70. His father, George
Farragut, was a native of Minorca, but coming to
this country prior to the revolution served for
seven years in the American army, attaining to
the rank of major. Marryiug in North Carolina,
he emigrated to East Tennessee, where David was
FAKRAGUT AS A MIDDY.
At the nge of eleven, through theinfluence of Com
modore David Porter, who was a friend or his
father, he received a warrant as midshipman, and
was ordered to Commodore Porter's own ship,
which was the famous Essex, and Farragut's first
experience of naval life was that celebrated two
years cruise in the Pacific, which ended in the
capture of the Essex. Of Ms personal share in the
stirring events of that period there are but meagre
details. After the capture on May 29, 1813, of the
English whaler, the Atlantic, Farragut served on
board of her as acting lieutenant, but was shortly
after ordered back to- the Essex, where he re
mained during the rest of that remarkable cruise,
in which nearly every English whaler known to
be in the South Atlantic was captured. The ac
tion with two English cruisers which resulted after
a severe fight of two hours and a half in the
CAPTCKE OF THE ESSEX
was a terrible initiation into the business of war
for a bey of not thirteen years. Young Farragut
went through the whole of it, and was wounded,
although not severely. On the return of peace in
1SU Porter secured a place for his namesake in a
school at Chester, Pa., where he spent a year
in the study of military and naval science.
He was then ordered to the Washington flag
ship of the Mediterranean squadron and there
met the celebrated Mr. Charles Fokoni, who was
chaplain of the flagship. He was a man of varied
and profound learning, and became Farragut's in
structor. When Mr. Folsom was appointed consul
at Tunis Farragut accompanied him, and this in
tercourse was highly beneficial to the youthful
sailor. He became
A MAN OF LEARNING
and was familiar not only with the principal Euro
pean languages, but also with Arabic aud Turkish.
at that time rare accomplishments for members of
his profession. He grew up a manly youth of de
cided personal courage, but of quiet tastes, re
served manners and pure morals. Upon his return
from the Mediterranean he was promoted to be
lieutenant, and served in 1S21 and 1S23 in the
Greyhound, which engaged in the capture of the
piratical establishment at Cape Crees, Cuba. In
1823 he was ordered to the
where he remained on shore duty until 1633. Then
he married Miss Loyal, daughter of a prominent
citizen of Norfolk ; but she became a hopeless in
valid soon after their marriage, and died after
several years of great suffering. After 1833 he
served two years in the Brazilian squadron, and
upon his return was again ordered to the Norfolk
navy-yard. While here he married his wife's sis
ter, Miss Virginia Loyal, by whom he had an only
son, named Loyal Farragut. In 1S3S he was or
dered to sea duty as lieutenant-commander of f lie
war sloop Natchez, stationed in the West Indies.
He was promoted to be commander in Septem
ber, 1S10, and put in command of the sloop-of-war
Decatur, for a cruise in the South Atlantic.
In 1S13-1SH he was on leave of ab;ence ; then on
duty again at Norfolk, in charge of the receiving
ship Pennsylvania. A year's service in command
of the Saratoga, in the West Indies, followed.
Again at Norfolkin 1SJS. He was ordered to Wash
ington as inspector of ordnance in 1651, and in
1S5I to the San Francisco yard. Here he remained,
having been promoted to be captain, until 1S3S,
when he was ordered to the Brooklyn and the
home squadron. Later he was placed on the
Naval Retiring Board, and stationed at New York.
THE CIVIL WAR
4roke out he was liviug at Norfolk, and made no
secret of his abhorrence of the disloyal action of
most of the people of that place. He was told by
his neighbors that he would not be allowed to re
main there if he gave utterance to his sentiments.
" Very well," was the characteristic reply. " Then I
will go where I can liveand utter them." When the
yard was destroyed Farragut left the city and re
turned to his duty in New York. Onthcl8thof April
he lea Norfolk withoutmoney and withhis family,
and reached New York with great difficulty.
Leaving his family up the Hudson, at Hastings, he
hastened to Washington and tendered his services
to the Government. There was no ship for him to
command, and for nine months he performed
duty in the .Navy Department. At length he was
appointed to lead the fleet which was to attack
and on the 3d of February, 1SC2, he sailed for
Hampton Roads, having selected the Hartford as
his flag-ship. He reached Ship Island on the 20th,
and organized the West Gulf Blockading squadron
For almost two months he was engaged in pre
paring for his grand attack on the great city of the
Southwest. The difficulties that lay in his way
were of a nature to have dispirited any other
than a man of iron energy. They were, however,
all surmounted. After six days' bombardment lie
found that the forts below New Orleans were not
likely to yield; but instead of retiring he deter
mined to break the great chain which
the rebels had stretched across the river and en
gage the powerful fleet that was assembled above
it. On the 24th of April the chain was broken and
the fleet advanced. The action was one of the
most singular combats' ever known, and may be
said to have been the inauguration of that new
naval wariare which definitely dates from the '
civil costcst. The enemy had iron-clnds and
rams, but they were utterly defeated, losing four
teen of their eighteen vessels. Forts and fleet had
both been vanquished. The Federal gun-beat
Varuna only was lost. His order of battle on this
occasion was thoroughly characteristic of the man,
in its promptness, readiness of resource, and its
QUIET, UNDAUNTED COURAGE.
The closing sentence of his order to -his officers
was as follows: " He (the flag-officer) will make a
signal for close action and abide the result con
quer or be conquered.'' With the rest of his fleet
Commodore Farragut proceeded up the river and
took possession of New Orleans April 25. He then
continued as faras-Vicksburg, and on the 25th of
June made an attack on that city, which was un
successful, because there was no land force to co
operate with the fleet. Returning to the Gulf he
perfected the blockading of the Gulf ports, and
directed the attacks on Corpus Christi,
Sabine Pass, and Galveston, all of
which places were taken. He was made senior
i ear-admiral July llr'for the capture of New Or
leans, the bestowaltif which was warmly approved
by the country. In the spring of 1S63 Rear-Admiral
Farragut co-opcratcd with General Grant in
his movements against Vicksburg. The passing
of the enemy's strong works at Port Hudson was a
repetition of what had been done in the previous
year at New Orleans. Only two of his vessels were
able to get by, but they blockaded the mouth of
and prevented the sending of supplies to Vicks
burg, and the fall of that place was finally due to
famine. He also directed the naval operations
against Port Hudson, which fell at the same time
with Yicksburg. The next important engagement
was the attack upon Mobile an undertaking
which had been in contemplation for some time
and was one of the most important events
of the war. A combined attack was
made on the 5th of August, and the famous
armored ship, the Tennessee, was taken, and all
tho rest of the enemy's naval force was destroyed.
The third fort was taken on the 23d of August,
and these successes destroyed Mobile as a port of
the enemy. The Brooklyn, greatly against his
wiU, was allowed to take the lead, instead of his
flag-ship, the Hartford. But after a monitor was
sunk by a torpedo he could be no lODger restrained,
with his flag-ship, believing, as he said, that the
torpedoes had been so long in the water that they
were probably innocuous. During a part of the
action he was lashed in the rigging, the better to
observe and give orders in the fight. Like all of
his exploits, Rear-Admiral FanagiU's actions at
Mobile combined tu an extraordinary extent use
fulness with brilliancy, practicability with da.ing.
The whole country was filled with his
praise. Foreign countries were almost
as loud in his praise as his own. In November,
1SG4, Farragut went to Washington to give his
views with regard to ceitaln contemplated naval
operations. He received the thanks of Congress,
and the grade of vice-admiral was created, which
placed him, under the President, at the head of
the naval service. He returned to blockading duty
in the Gulf, and toward the close of the war was
sent to the Jame? River. In July, 1SCG, he was
promoted to the
GRADE OF ADMIRAL,
created for him. The merchants of New York,
feeling that his services had been Invaluable to
the commerce of the country, presented him with
a purse of $50,000. He had been too busy fighting
the enemy to make profits by the capture of blockade-runners
or the 'seizure of cotton. After the
close of the war he was sent on a cruise in the
Franklin to European waters, and everywhere met
with the most distinguished consideration and re
gard. After his return to this country Admiral
Farragut was an almost constant invalid. He
suffered greatly for a year prior to his decease, and
death came to him as a relief to a hopeless victim.
A NATIONAL SYNAGOGUE.
A Question Nov Acitated Some Remarks
About National Churcue.
The idea of having a national church at
the Capital of the country has always been a favor
ite one with the various religious denominations
throughout the country. The idea is by no means
an inappropriate one, as here, more than any
where else, a large number make their temporary
home, and there should be some provision made
for their enjoyment of the same religious privi
leges which they have at their own homes. Be
sides, there is another reason, which has more or
less weight, and that is the pardonable pride
which each'denomination has to make
A RESPECTABLE SHOWING
in the character of the church edifice which repre
sents them at the National Capital. This matter
has been discussed in the various church organs
for years, and at times efforts have been made to
carry the idea into practical effect. The great dif
ficulty has been to arouse sufficient interest to in
duce people to contribute to the erection of the
church edifice, but, as they would only be bene
fited indirectly, the appeals for funds have not met
with a very hearty or general response. The
Methodists were the first denomination that suc
ceeded in carrying this idea into practical effect
by the erection of
THE METROPOLITAN CHURCH.
A sufficient amouut was subscribed throughout the
country to begin the erection of the church edifice,
and reliance was placed upon the congregation
that would be gathered in the new church to pay
the balance. This expectation was not realized,
and the debt remained upon the church edifice
until quite recently, when a new effert wa3
made, and the balance of the debt
was wiped out by contributions from the Methodist
churches throughout the country. While the
members of this congregation have contributed gen
erously to the payment of the debt, still the his
tory of their church proves conclusively that the
people for whom it was built could not be de
pended upon for pecuniary support. The next
churcli edifice of this character erected here is the
beautiful stiucture occupied by
THE UNITARIAN SOCIETY.
This was built by the contributions of similar so
cieties throughout the country, as well as the resi
dent members, and it was paid for when dedi
cated. The society has continued in a prosperous
condition, and in this instance the practicability
of the national church ideahas been demonstrated.
The edifice occupied by the Congregational so
ciety was mainly built by contributions throughout
thecountry.nnd, while it still labors under a large
debt, the experiment is considered a success.
With these exceptions no other denomination has
erected a church here. Recently a movement has
been -ct on foot to build a Christian Church here,
and subscriptions are now being made with a fa
vorable prospect that it will be accomplished.
During the pa-t week statements have appeared
in the religious press to the effect that the Jews
throughout the country proposed to erect
A NATIONAL SYNAGOGUE
here which would be a credit to the sect, and pro
vide suitable accommodations for the increasing
numbers of the adherents of that faith. Inquiry
among the prominent Jews last evening failed to
elicit any definite information confirmatory of
their statement. There was no one that seemed to
know anything of such a scheme, and all were
quite positive that there was no action of this
kind contemplated by their denomination. Meet
ing Mr. A. S. Solomon, the reporter asked whether
he knew anything of the matter. He laughed and
"That is merely an old question revamped.
Some seven or eight years ago I advocated the
erection of a national synagogue here in the Jewish
papers very vigorously, but the idea did not take.
There was no interest manifested, and so the mat
ter was dropped."
" Then you think there is no reliable foundation
for the statement?"
" None that I have heard of. The Jews through
out the country show no interest in the matter, and
the people here have their own churches to take
" Do you think that the idea is a good one?"
" I did at one time, but I am inclined to believe
that it could not be successfully carried out, and
so it had better not be attempted."
"BILLEE TAYLOR'S" WEEK.
MEN WHO ARE BUILDING.
Permits Granted Saturday for
Building took a lively jump last Satur
day, as shown by the records of the office of the
Inspector of Buildings. G.B. Whiting, U. S. N., took
out a permit to erect a three-story brick house on
K street, between Sixteenth and Seventeenth
streets northwest, for SS.OCO. He will have it built
under his personal supervision. It is to be of brick,
2G feet front by 52 feet deep, pressed brick front, one
bay-window, with tin cornices and rooting. Mr. S
R. Bond, the well-known attorney at law, took ou
a peimit to erect a handsome residence for himself
and family, on Iowa circle, near Thirteenth street
northwest. Mr. James H. McGill is the architect,
and Messrs. W. B. Downing & Bro. builders.
The house is to be a three-story and base
ment brick, with flat roof. It will be
25 feet front by 30 feet deep, with a two-story back
building 35 feet in length. There is to be a large
two-story bay-window, and the front will be fin
ished with ornamental wood projections, while the
interior is to have the benefit of all modern Im
provement1;. The house is estimated to cost 58,500.
Mr. C. A. Schneider wa3 given a permit to erect
three three-story and basement brick houses on G,
between Eighteenth and Nineteenth streets north
west, at a cost of 510,000. Messrs. Cluss & Schultz
are the architects, and J. F. Sanner the builder.
The residences will be of presscd-brick fronts, each
with a bay-window, flat roof, and galvanized iron
cornices. A permit was granted Mr. John T. Len
man to build two three-story and basement brick
dwellings on I, between Sixth and Seventh streets
northwest, for S-1,500 each. Each house will have
a frontage of 15 feet, with a depth of 09 leet. Each
will have a bay-window end ornamental wood
projections. W. T. Birch was given a peimit
Nautical Opera at Both Tbeatres
Xhe Comlqae. '
The much talked-of "Billee Taylor"
was presented for the first time in this city at Ford's
Opera-House on Saturday. Much of its music is
very attractive, and already someisheard whistled
by the street gamins. These bits that are easily
remembered, however, are not solos, but choruses
and it is a peculiar feature in the musical score that
there are but few solos. The light, sparkling char
acter of the various movements captivates the at
tention at once and pleasantly holds it during the
entire opera. The numbers that were most pleas
ing so far as arc remembered were the' Charity
Girl's Chorus " and the little solo which precedes it
(sung by Miss May StemblcrJ, the two duos by
Arabella (Miss Eva Mills) and QUIcc Taylor
(Mr. Charles F. Lang), the " conspirators'
Trio" by Arabella, Crab (Mr. C. Hogandorp), and
Captain Flapper (Mr. C. H. Drew), the solo and
choius " Just Like That," the songand chorus "I'll
Tell You Why," "It's Love, Love, Love," &c,and
the rollicking song by Ben Barnade (Mr. George
Denham), ' All on Account of Eliza." The finale
to the first act is well worked up, as is also the
closing chorus. The story of the piece is found in
the ancient ballad of Sheridan, about a young
bridegroom being taken by a press gang on hi3
wedding day and carried for a sailor on the
" Thunderbomb," and need not be repeated now.
The part of ArabtUa is one by no means worthy the
talent of Miss Eva Mills, for the music affords no
scope for her thoroughly cultivated voice. She
made the most of it possible, however, and
brought it into decided prominence, while a less
skillful artist would have escaped recognition.
Miss AnnaShaffermadeasweetlooking "orphan"
Phoebe, and in the second act was the jauntiest
sailor imaginable. Mr. George DenhanT was the
feature of the piece, his "make-up" being re
markable and his singing and acting as the
" Bos'in of H. M. S. Thunderbomb" being funny in
the extreme. The ChrUtoplter Crab of Mr. C. Hogan
dorp afforded that gentleman an opportunity for
some excellent burlesque villainy, and the Sir
Mincing Lane of Mr. John Reibert aud Captain
Flapper of Mr. C. II. Drew, whose imitation of
Stuart Robson was decidedly apparent, were
well rendered. "Billee Taylor" will be the at
traction during this week.
It never rains but it pours. Here we have been
waiting for an opportunity to see that which for so
long.has convulsed New York, theopera of "Billee
Taylor," and now we have it in allopathic doses.
Ford got in with the first performance on Satur
day, and in addition to his company we are also
to have " Billee" at the National, where it will be
given by D'Oyley Carte's company. The principal
members of the company arc Signor Brocalini,
who is an excellent singer and actor, and MLss
Francesca Guthrie, who is said to be a lady of re
finement and an artiste of exceptional finish and
culture. The other members of the troupe arc said
to be good singers and actors, and the chorus will
be large and complete.
THE THIRD ATHEN.EU3I CLUB CONCERT.
The third and last concert for this season under
the auspices of the Atbemcum Club will be given

Courlaender and Gaul; a cavatinafrom Mozart's
"Titus," sung by Miss Hunt; a clarionet solo,
"Weber's Last Thought," by Mr. Andrea Coda;

The Society of St. Gecrce or the District
nt Their Third Anniversary Dinner.
The toast of " The Press of Englaud and
America," at the third an nivcrsary dinner of the
St. George's Society of this city, at Abncr's Hall
Saturday night, was responded to by Captain I. N.
Burritt, of the Sunday Herald, ill a" speech full of
deep thought and noble sentiment. He urged'that
the true mission of the press of both countries was
to compel nations to settle their differences with
out bloodshed and popularize Benjamin Frank
lin's expression " that there was never a good war
or a bad peace." The other oratorical gems of the
evening were made by Congressman Daggett, of
Nevada, and District-Attorney Corkhill, in
response to "The Motherland;" "Our
Guests," by Dr. Alfred Thomas ; " The Day we
Celebrate," by President George Francis Dawson :
"Our Sister Societies," by.V.S. Solomons; "The
Land We Live In," by Rev. Benjamin Swallow.
Other toasts were drank aud responded to, and
telegrams were n-nd from Societies of St. Geoigc
elsewhere. An original poem, "An Ode to St.
George," written by the coiresponding secretary,
C. F. Benjamin, was read in fine style by Junius
Simons, esq. Songs of the two nations were sung
by many of the guests, and the whole enter
tainment proved to be a feast of reason
and a flow of soul. A band of music en
livened the proceedings. The menu furnished
by Abner was excellent. The programme
from beginning to end was replete with gocd
things, and reflected credit upon the Society of
St. George. Among the invited guests were Alex.
