formally and in pcrton conveyed Mayor

Mayor's representative eaniiot iitccduto, and
telegraphic, communication is now gmu on
bctwicn here and New York on that point.
The push!! ill's messenger, at 11 o'clock,
had not arrived, and when he does come ind
presents thu invitation from the Soldiers
Hume, it is not unlikely that tl e condition ol
General Grunt relative to Mrs. Grant being
buried Inside him will also then cause eoiuc
delay, i'e udii g iliei coufeirncc with others,
tho Invitation Irom the ciiy ol Spnng

considered ai yet. Though, beforo his dinlh,
General Grant, ns one ol three Slates in
which he would desiio to be bulled in, indi

tho voluminous arrangements lor hid father's

The lamlly fully reeogui.e the claim ol Ihe
people mid the Nation tu du honor tu the

ing that belore all Ihe pomp and pigmtry of
the burial tho lamlly should lime
