no paleuesa upon the luster ot the proud
funiH of this, America'! most illustrious eon
With genuine and with lojal affection uro
we gathered hero today, to pay our luting
tribute to the memory ot that sublime and
lotty character which we tm known as
(Irneral Grant.
Ours is indeed no ordinary sorrow. All
over the land, rank and talent, and ollice and
authority, the loltyandthc lowly, admiring
friends and generous toes, comrades in war
and supporters in iace, all assemble to honor
the memory of the fallen chieftain. And
throughout all the civilized nations ot the
world, there are those in every land who
would gladly clasp hands with us today and
share the great grief that has come so sud
denly upon us.
We arn met today not to symbolize
our atTection for the fallen hero, warrior
and statesman, in enduring granite, mar
ble, bronze, pyramid or temple, but to
give expression to the sublime honor with
whicL we revere the memory, cherish the vir
tues and exalt the character of the greatest
military genius of modern times.
We are assembled that we may by simple
tribute ot mind and heart, of word and died,
of thought and feeling, bear public testimony
to the reverence and loie which are enfiliered
within our very souls tor the regal lite wo
celebrate today.
If it be true that a lite is to be measured
by the great events which aie condensed into
it, surely the life ot this generation is pro
found, indeed.
To the devastation and havoc of the great
civil war which we havo eijierieoied, has
lie-en added the terrible shock and calamity ot
Lincoln's martyr death, followed in close suc
cession by the fiendish assassination ot our
own beloved Oarheld. Hut iu the sad his
tory ot our national sorrow, it would teem
as if the (oiler had reserved the greatest
victim to the hut, that "he might give to tho
vaeHul world the very proudest token of his
For huu, whose resplendent career we re
view today, we could all have wished ft long
and mellow eventido wbiili the night might
linger to disturb," but the coming ot the son
of man is for an appointed time and cannot
tarry. It would illy become us to call iu
ciuestion the wisdom ol the great Kulhi r of
us all in this manifestation of bis providence,
or to murmur at his mysterious doings.
The rather would we seek for grace to
learn the lessonjof our frailty, lwrne into our
hearts by the sad reflection of the hour.

The great writhing commotions, the inter
nal throes, the very fiery furnace through
which we as a nation have, been led,
the pilgrimage of instruction through which
we have passed; the processes ot purification
out of which we have come and the ulti
mate and complete coronation of human lib
erty and alisolute equality, all bespeak tho
fostering care and controlling love, as well as
the directing owcr of the great llod of na
tions. We believe that the same kind Father who
has laid upon us heavily his alllicting band
to-day did in the hour of our national crisis,
In the hour of our absolute extremity and su
preme need, furnish, equip and ralsi up for
us this wise, prudential, heroic, competent
leader; this man with lordly and tormatlw.

fully and triumphantly through the indi
cates mazes and perplexing labyrinths of the
confusing, threatening and imminent perils
in which it bad become Involved, and to lend
it out into the clear sunlight and radiant
effulgence of a glorious and a beautitul face.
We believe that God strengthened the heart
and girded up the soul of this "silent man of
destiny" for the mighty conflicts and chival
rous deeds that his country should call upon
blm to perform when he should lead those
grand old heroes of the war, "who, all eon
tent In arms to cope, each with his fronting
foe," through privation, and sacrifice, and
nameless suffering, out into the noonday
splendor ot ultimate and complete triumph.
No more certainly did God raise up, sus
tain and direct Gyrus, the I'ersiaa prince, and
enable him to prevail against the mighty
Ilabylon, the grtat capital of Nebuchaduez

the crown prince, ltelscha7zar, and lo possess
the beautiful city, than that he brought forth,
full orbed, with dauntless heart, majestic
brain and unyeildlng will, that wonderiul
endowment ot genuls and skill, that sublime
creation which tho world has In Ulysses 8.
In the niche of time came forth tho distin
guished general, the great conqueror, the
hero of Appomattox, the generous arbitrator,
the wise counsellor ami statesman, the deliv
erer of bis people to bring order and peace

and death.
Surely "there It an ever-acting Divinity
caring through all change for the sure-working
of hi own putpose."
How then can we but feel as we are gath

Occasions of solemnity are sometimes op
pressive. There was such an occasion in this
country twenty years ago. When Lincoln
died the good, great president whose mighty
heart and brain had labored and endured so
long, so nobly, so fruitfully; whose kindly
countenance, and gentle spirit, and rugged
common sense and far -seeing wisdom bad so
endeared blm to the people that the sense of
personal bereavement in every home mingled
wits the universal sense of national loss and
unknown new peril when he died the gloom
that darkened all the land was Instantly op
pressive to every patriotic spirit. For that
surprise of sorrow broke upon an hour when
the nation's heart, lung tired and weary

Now, at the end of twenty years, in time
of peace, when all i9crities incident to his
active participation in public affairs
have had time to solten and disappear, with
the clustering honors of all lands still bright
upon him, after many months of sustained
soldierly fortitude under the advances of in
curable disease, the greatest captain of bis
age has died.
General Urant is dead. Again the nation
mourns its most illustrious citizen In the
metropolis of the country, along the bank of
our most beautiful river and on the waters of
the nohle stream, the splendid pageant of his
funeral moves toward the place ot burial;
and simultaneously, in every quarter of the
sorrowing laud, the ople In memorial as
semblies attest the nation's honor for the na
tion's fallen son.
General Grant is dead; but the mechanism
ot the government sustains no shock, and
the organization of the army suffers no dis
turbance. The nation mourn?, lint no
man's faro is blanched, and no man's heart is
shaken with apprelicusiou. General Grant

no element of oppessiveness in the seirrcm
that the people feel. And this rare tran
quility ot deep public grief Ii due, In most
aliudaul measure, tu the clear-eyed, faithful
wisdom ot the man whom we deplore the
soldier-statesman; inexorable in war and
generous in ieacc. His career on earth Is

General Grant is dead. Ooe great war

KKixnw-ciTizt'vs Today we stand rev
erently in tho presence ol a great national
sorrow. There is a liuili In the noisy
haunts of trade, and th pulsations of a
busy world are stilled. The deep solemn
lolling of bells falls upon the earth
with melancholy cadence. The draperies ol
the tomb, the vlilble signs of mourning are
upon every lintel, as though the angel of
death had breathed upon each household
with the loss ot its first born.
This universal expression of grief is elo
quent of the magnitude ot our loss, of our
appreciation of the life and character of him
we mourn, ,
Yet we are now too near General Grant to
form a correct estimate of his life and public
services. To properly absorb the majesty
and sublimity of lit. Itlanc, the traveler will
not scale ils rugged sides, and cross its deep
ravines to measure it foot by foot from base
to summit, but he will stand afar off, where
bis sweep of vision will in one glance take
in its vast proportions, in bold relief against
the horizon, from its snow-capped eaki,
towering among the clouds, where the light
nings play, to the verdure clad valleys, at its
foot, with Its rugged outlines softened In the
distance by the mellow light of Italy's sunny
skies, complete and lerfect in its gtnndear.
So in the Immediate presence of the noble
dead there can be no just analysis of public
character. When at the distance of another
generation; when time shall have softened
Hie asierltic-9 of recent conflict; when pas
sion and prejudice shall hare passed oir as
noxious exhalations, then the eminent servi
ces of General Grant, standing out In the full
light of history, will receive the lull meas
ure of recognition and reward.
Two figures stand forth pre-eminently in
that great epoch of American history the
civil war.
Lincoln, at the head of the civil adminis
tration, guided the nation through that
labyrinthian maze Into which it was plunged
lit interiieciue strife. Grant, at the head uf
the military povtir, from the Inception of
his caiccrnt I'aducali cariied the Hag through
a succession uf victories to final triumph at
Ap-omait x.
The e u beard the loud ncclalm of victory
winch greeted our Bucceislul arms, and
c'liight but a glimpse of the dawn ot recog
nition The other not only saw the sword sheathed
In the scabbard, and as the elected successor
ot Lincoln complete in the cabinet what hit
prones in the held nad made possible, but
after twice receiving the highest suffrage of
the people, and the proud recognition of
his eminence by the nations of the world,
returned in riened manhood to pri
vate life before age had Impaired his intel
lectual vigor, or time had dimmed t le lustre
of his lame.
Hut in our manifestation of sorrow at his
death we are not alone. As estranged
brothers over the new made grave ol a loved
parent, the South with us today laments the
death of the departed soldier. Their bands
with ours today tend"rly, lovingly carry him
to the tomb.
That was no hollow mockery of the South
ren heart when it placed a garland on the
grave of Charles Sumner. He was the lore
most enemy nf slavery in that vanguard of
abolitionists when in that elder day to lie
called an abolitionist was spoken with fear
and bated breath. Yet moved by an impul e
of generosity which excites recognition when
others stir not, he had the courage born of
deep conviction at the time when tho un
healed wounds were still pleading to ask the
general government to erase from the ban
ners ot the national army the names of the
battle-lields where victory bad la-en won
That Lexington and Hunker Hill and York
town might stand as a common heritage,
but that t'liiloh and Mission Hidgc aud Get
tysburg should be stricken from uur Hags as
assailing tbe pride and wounding tte sensi
bilities ot the Southern people. And at his
deatli they did him honor.
So today the Hjulli kindly remembers the
namcolUen. lirnnt. lliey round himaginer
uuscoiiqiierur. When die taling Lee'.siirrender
thuuh he knew he had a giant's power. He
didn't use It as a giant. Nothlug was done
to humiliate, the vanquished. No armies
were lonipelled to pass uuder Ihn joke. No
royal eaptivm were lashed lo the chariot
wheals to grace his triumphal march; and
now in grateful remembrance they mingle
their tears with ours. Let us hope that as
ovi r the grave ol buried love hearts dis
severed havolieen united by the alihemy of
a ctminon sorrow, so in our common grief
this day the hi arts ot brethren north aud
south may grow kindlier to each other.

As I happen to be a native of the county iu
which General Gran' first saw the light, it
might be thought that I thuuld Bpeak of the
early remlnitcenres of our boyhood, but in
this grand presene and in view of these em
blems uf mournin?, I will pas over what I
had intended to say in that regard, as perhaps
of two light a character for the occasion. I
will say, however, that Jesse H. Grant was a
man ol much more than ordinary Intelligence
and influence in his circle. He was an active
whig iu politics, always present at the con
ventions of his party. One thing in him was
remarkable: he had the most unlajuudedcuu
fiJenie, and not a little pride, in the boy,
L'lytses. As you have heard, the II in. Thos.
L Hamer selected aud tent U, S. Grant to
We,t Point. General Hamer, the ablest roan
of his party, as I thought, knew young Graot
well. The family of Grant then resided iu
the village of Georgetown, at did Mr, Hamer.
They were Intimate, members of the same
church, and that Mr. (tamer selected Ulysses
is proof that he saw the qualities In blm of a
valuable character.
I have beard It said that General Grant
pounded his way to Richmond; that he lott
mure men between the Wilderness and Appo
mattox 'ban Lee hadin hit whole army. The
secret ot Grant's success, in my opinion,
was, that be was iu the habit of considering
well and thoroughly any enterprise in which
be propositi to engage, and, having deter
mined upon his plan, lis never permitted
himself to doubt the correctness of the plan,
hut turned all his thought tuward carrying
It nut. It was thus, be was "going lo ICIch
inoud on that line, if It took him all sum
mer." And If he had not thus pounded bit
way, he would never have seen Itichmond,
It was simply driving the enemy from one
embankment to another till the last was
reached and wrested from them.
As a nation, the American eople are not
unused to times of sorrow. None of it will
ever forget the morning of the lMh of April,
1HC5, when thick gloom, at of a dark cloud,
settled down over the land when strong
men looked Into each other's faces, and said,
"If.thla may be, what may not be?" When
shops were deserted and business houses
closed, and men walked silently and sadly
homeward, carrying the terrible tidings,
"Lincoln has fallen by the hand of nn assas
sin," And Garfield aroused the stunned
multitude by mounting to a stand aud calling
out that memorable sentiment, "Fellow-citizens,
God yet reigns and the government at
Washington still lives " Hut tooa, too noon,
the nation was again shocked at the tame la
talitr upon Oarfield. All remember bow the
people nf the whole land waited and watched
at the thousand telegraph stations, hoping
against hope that the stricken presi
dent might le restored. And how the whole
land bowed its bead in grief, when the tele
graph tent the word aiuund the world, "Gar
field is dead."
And now again for months the sympathies
of our K'Ople have lawn moved and hearts
stricken at the tulTering of one whom all
people and lands pronounce great. And at
this hour, every city, town and hamlet In tho
land is dra ied in the emblems of mourning,
which speak in terms more eloquent than any
words. The like and extent ot this the world
never before saw, Mr. Cauley, in bis essay
on Hamden, Nought lor a parallel to hit great
character, anil seemt sadly to close the essay
with the words: "The history ol revolutions
furnish no parallel, or furnish a parallel in
Washington alone." That was the magnifi
cent tribute ol the Kogllsh lord to our Wash
ington. And all people say that in the last
half ceulury, at least, in military achieve
ment. Grant bat no parallel, Washington
ami Grant each in hit place stands without n
rival; Initio draw a parallel between them
were to attempt the impossible. A contrast
would be less difficult. Washington held a
highest place In the aristocratic circles of
Virginia; Grant knew no aristocracy but the
aristocracy of work. Washington had a mil
itary experience in the French and Indian
war, which drew the attention uf America
and even of Kogland. Grant had an experi
ence in the Mexican war highly honor
able when it became known in after
years. When the war of Independ
ence became inevitable, the public
at once centers upon Washington as the gen
eral in chief to lead the colonial forces.
When tho war of the rebellion came on
Grant's name was as unknown lo the public
at large as that of any other book keeper in
a western town twenty-five years ago.
Washington at once went to ihe bead of the
army, and his magnificent presence, ta'.m res
olution and unllincbing will power inspired
new and higher hoK- in all Mttriotlc hearts
of the triumph ot our cause. Grant apent
the summer ot 1801 In drilling raw recruits
fur the army, and doing this) work well, he
received a colonel's commission and waa
happy until that was exclunged tor a bran
dies s feather, without a command. Twice
he wrote to the adjutant general asking for a
coinmsnd, but received no ansaer. Twice
he visited McClelland on the same mirsiun,
with like result. Iliauouraged he sold Ins
colonel's uniform aud seemed about to return
'.o Galena, but some impulse took him to
General Fiemnnt, who discovered in Grant
"soldierly qualities, iell-pnis, modesty, de
rision, attention to details," und after an ac
quaintance aud conversation of three hours,
he oUered blm the important military post ot
Cairo, then considered Ihe Gate of the
South," which was accepted, and from thai
time the name of Grant lcarae historical.
WoEhlngton grandly closed out the war ot
Indcrtndcnce by accepting the sword of
Lord Cornwallis, aud.lhe surrender uf 7,000
llrilish soldiers. Grant as grandly clced
out the war of the rebellion with the south
ern confederacy at his leet. Hut instead uf
awarding lo the liadera a late usual to such,
the kindly beirt of Grant took command ol
Ihe generabiu-chiet, and be gave the order,
"Keep your Bide arms, jour burses and other
valuables. You will need them. Go home
and cultivate your lands, restore your coun
try to prosiierity, and let ill Ihj friends."
The final contrast. Washington, after a
few hours suffering, passed to his Immortal
ity beyond time. Grant held out many
months against the dread destroyer, then at
the last, made bis first tutrender.
"After life's fitful fever he sleeps well."
We are told by Motley, in his history of
the Dutch republic, that when the prince of
Grange died the little children ciied in the
streets. Had the accomplished historian
lived until now he would have remembered
his own graphic account of the glory and
gloom of Holland. He would have witnessed
on his own soil an exhibition uf national sur
row over the death of a hero aud a soldier
unparalleled lo the history ol the world. The
prime of Grange was sometimes called
William, the Silent. After redeeming bis
country from the tyranny ot a despot, he
tell, fatal i plened by tho bullet of an assas
sin, in July, loat. No sadder scene of pub
lic sorrow can be found In the annals of time
Jhan that which followed the prince's death.
And now, after the lapse of three centuries,
in the same season of the year, the people of
America are called to mourn the
death of another bero. The voice of
their Silent Man is uow silent foiev. r;
but the great deeds which he wrought
live after him; and they will continue to
live and lie wonder ot mankind, while loi
ters last and the world endures.
What a cloud of grief it this which over
shadows our land! In all claMt aud condi
tions of society, from the rock-bouud coast

Major I). C. Putnam, who win assigned
for an address, wits In New York city, at
tending tho funeral nf General Grant, ns the
representative of Mitchill Post, (1. A It.
Tho last address was that of Presidents,
A. Orl, of Wlllenlarg college, who said, in
substance: "We mourn the loss of a great
captain. We speak praises of our distin
guished i x-prcsident, and do honor to a great
man. Grant was a rare man;
one of the lew who stand loie
nioti in the history of a mighty re
public. While we sorrow over his dcatn
and wish that his life might havo been pro
longed, still let us not target that the unity
of our nation it the result of his deeds, It
was no ordinary struggle in which be look so
prominent a pari; it was no political light;
the contest was not one of factions for tem
porary supremacy, nor vviw it the attempt to
gain conquest or achive renown. Far greater
questions were ns issue. The liberty
of a portion of the people was not merely
threatened but assailed with a determination
which has not a parnllil In history. It was a
civil tlrife and yet a moral struggle. In such
a conflict Alexander would have found no
Interest; Caesar, no attraction; and Napo
leon, no enthusiasm. These were men of
high military genius, but not men uf great
soul. Sbiloh and Vicksburg were great vie
toiies, but it is the moral principle that Elands
out iu the li fe of General Grunt. He was a
man ol great moral principle."
He then seconded the motion that
the resolutions introduced by Mr. Frej In
adopted, and the motion was can ied unani
mously. "God llless Our Natlto Lind," to the tune
of America, was then sung, the whole audi
ence participating. This was followed by a
short benedicllun by llev. W. II. Willi, and
the immense concouiHC of jaople dispersed.
