READY FOR THE GRAVE How He Is Dressed Mo Sword for His Coffin The Funeral Car Mrs. Grant's I-aat Letter from (he General Notes of Preparation. U. S. Grant. Died July 2b, ISS5. The transfer "f the body to the casket was made between t and 7 o'clock. The suit the general is to be buried in is ot black broad cloth. He wears a low standing collar with black necktie tied in a plain bow-knot. In the shirt bosom is a single plain gold stud. On the feet are white stockings and patent- leather blippers. The bands rest easily across tbe breast, with the right a little above the left. On the little finger of tbe left baud is a plain gold ring, which the general wore for many year-'. The casket, a; soon as the remains were finally bestowed in it, was closed up with two heavy plate-glass covers, au.i it Will not D9 disturbed again. The casket re-ts under the black canopy, and there are no other funeral drapings in the room. Back of tue coffin and about at the middle of it is the beautiful floral pil low sent by Maa le ptwt. No. I, 6. A. R. , of Philadelphia, Just back of the heat is a floral tribute teat by Mrs. Amos Bissell, of Denver, consisting of a heart and anchor resting in a bed of immortelles. Beside this, at tbe head of the coffin, are flowers sent by Mrs. Dreiel, and also the daily con tribution made by U. N. Grant Grand Army post At 9 o clock the formal transfjr of the remains was made to tbe Grant post, wbc are to act from this t me on as the pruard immediately about the remains. They have divide! the night into four watches. Tbe reason the general will not be buried in his uniform is because he had none. His uniform of lieutenant general was ssnt to Washington with to? other relics of his career, last spring, and was transferred to the government, and al! his swords went at the anie time and when Mrs. Grant -saw a p c are t bl otter day representing a coffin with a wt , resting upon it site nas much effaetel. 7u genera, :elt the Raiting with the swoi i- whicu tie had won in Ihe arm m -re keenly tuan that nit'u all uis la. trophias, and it touched Mrs. li.-anc dp!y that now be was dead there wa- not one ot the swords he cherished so much to rasi upon his coffin. Mr. Henry Camp, win sung for fifteen year- in Beecber's churci). and who now has ccaree of sincinjr in th.- Human Place Mathjdit Episcopal church. Brooklyn, is here with the U. S. Grant pt, No. SJ7. of which he is a member, and wid tae charge of the smxmjr at the funaral. THE FrNF.P.AL CAR stands on a side-trac in the woods and the work of drap.n; wa., tegun Thursday morn in?. The fiaj that was laid Wedne-div ;ht '.'U the casket hal not been disturbs 1 Thur,day mornr.ig. GeiL Hancoc and ta.T have sent a re quest to be allowed t make a forniAl call iji tue family n Aug. o. Cyrus W. Fieid i-aoied Thursday morning from London as follow,; "The duke of Ancvle writes me: 'Will you kindly say to M.-.s. Grant how much 1 reel lor her and hnw much I value tue niemorv of her and her husband's visit tc us in Scotland.' " Tbe mavor of Manchester, England, tele graphs: "1 desire on behalf of myself and have been requested by resolution of the city council this day to express deep sym pathy with you and the American nation iri the loss sustained by the death of your hu ts ni, Geu. Grant." The family still regard with favor t suggestion that the body be tak?n froir Aloauy to riew ork iy boat, ihey art esjwially impressed with the plan of hav H!g trains of cars escort the n-dilia on tht Naw York Central anJ We t Shore roads. One reason why Mr Grant does not give to te public the l-tter tue general left f it her, is tnat it mention, tbe names of a nu: ber of men, now living, telling how the gva eral bad been deceived ny those Ue sun posed to be bis friends, and explaining how hi was drawn into the meshes of ard. The letter would make eight pae-. closely written, of larce sized writing paper. Kev. Dr. S. V. Ijeech, chaplain of the state senate, came up fnm Saraoa, Thursday, to make a final p'.ea that the body of Gen Grant lie in state in or near Congras park. He bad an interview with CoL Grant, wac referred taim to Cnl. Jones Gfo. IlaucocK's repre-entative. Col. Jones said it would be dsirable to get to Al' any a' soon us po ble, aud he wt uld have to adhere to t published pun, wuich will not allow the casket to be 0ned at Saratoga A VIEW OF THE DEAD. At 2:15 p. m. Thursday the doors of the cottage were opened and the guests of the hotel and visitors entered in single file from the north door and passed into the parlor. The casket was placed on rests be neath a heavily draped canopy. Half of the bod is visible. It looked natu ral, but very ashen, and dark under the eyes. Each visitor made a momentary pause, and then passed out by toe east door. bigns of emotion were visible on many faces. It has been thought by those who wili bave charge of the funeral car it New York that it would be 'ap propriate it the colored grand army veterans should lead the thirty-eight horses that will draw tbe car. It is understood that upon application to a post ot colored Grand Army men the response was made that tbe required number of grooms would respond at $3 per head. This is said tohava been declined. Frogrem of Preparation at New York. Kkw York, July 31. Rapid progress u arranging the many details attending tbt Grant funeral ceremonies o 1 Aug. s is being made at Gen. Hancock's headquarters. vast amount of work, however, still re mains to be doue, which cannot be completed until a definite estimate is mide of the number of organizations, witu their re spective strength, which will participate in the procession. Thursday Gen. Hancock, CoL Nicholson and Msj. Gardner were occu pied in issuing instructions to the varioui aides, which bave been appointed to assist in the conduct of the ceremonies. THE NATIONAL MONUMENT. At the meeting of the monument commit tee Wednesday a communication was read from Norvin Green, of the Western Union, stating that the board of di rectors of that company bad appropriated (5,U0U toward the national moo a meat tc Gen. Grant, and would receive and trans mit free of charge ail subscriptions tot the same purpose, at any of Its c-fDes In the country, i - A member of the committee said the sura of fl.UOO.OOO bad been mentioned in the committee as the amount to be raised by subscription for tbe permanent tomb . tL-,. f,fc but that the committee did not mention any sum in its report, because even tl,000,000 may be too small for tbe de sign finally fixed upon. MUST (K) BY RAIL. Alfred Decordova, commodore of the American yacht clu j, has bent a communica tion to Gen. Hancock suggesting the appro priateness of a naval parade, and offering the service of the squadron under his com mmd for the occasion. Gen Hancock re plied: Your suge-tions are interesting, and have a precedent in the trausportaation of Gen. Montgomery's remains when removed from Quebec, via the Hudson half a cen tury ago. Time is passing rapidly, and not sufficient remains to change the order of the programme already dehn itely concluded. l tie railroad route nas been selected and the train is being draped, and it is now too late to chhn.e the programme, which might have been done hail the proposition been made earlier. I would venture to suggest that the American yacht club which you repre sent might make a very effective addition by being present on the 3 to inst on the river near the line of the procession, where the Hudson is first approached by tbe line of march, and following it thsnca to the place of interment While a large force of men were at work on tbe foundation for the temporary vault r r Gen. Grant s body, at Riverside park, Wednesday, a violent storm came up. The workmen had hardly secured shelter in the neighboring house, when a terrific stroke of lightning descended close to the spot where they had been working. It struck one of the large oak trees on the bluff and shattered it to pieces. Proposed Monument at Chicago. Chicago, July 3L The monument to Gen. Grant, which it is proposed to erect in Lincoln park, is variously estimated (by thoe taking an active interest in the mat ter) to cost from $50,000 to $100,000. Sub scripti ms have been opened, and one or two received of $5,000, Potter Palmer giv ing that mm. It is said that there if about $31,000 already plelged. A serv ant girl went to The Tribune office Wednesday afternoon and gave a whole week's wages $4. The Union Veteran club and Gen. Grant post, G. A. R-, held sneetinzs Wednesday night and took appropriate action aoi ad dresses were delivered eulogistic of the great soldier. The Union veteran club indorsed the monument project Mayor Harrison has appointed a commit tee to make arrangements for services to be held in this city on the !av of the funeral There will pro; ably bo a procession of the military and other orgauizations. The new-boys of Chicago, numbering some 300, assembled on the west side of the citv hall Thursday af:ernoon, and passed resolutions of sympathy for Mrs. U. S. Jrant in her bereavement Cciefof Police Doyle addressed the boys. The Pall Rearers. Washington- City, July 3L President C'.evelani has been in commun cation with Mr. Grr.ut restiecting tbe selection of pall bearers for Gen. Giant's remains. Upon ceipt o; the request tnat be make the selection, the president immediately teiei-aptied to Mrs. Grant for any siiiTestioa she might de,ire to offer. .drs. Grant replied that fif a prominent union general instancing Sherman and Sheridan should be selected she desired that some prominent general who served in the Confederate army should also be invited 1 1 act as one of the bearers. The presiden has not yet prepared the list of names. Waseiikgtos, D. C, Julv 31. Presi dent Cleveland, on reeeivinn Mr9.

Y., July 31. At seven o'clock last evening, while the major: the hotel guests were at dinner, a ter rific peai of iihtnin came, aecornpauied by an explosion like that of a bomb in the d.ijiag room itse.f. Lightning had struck the electric light wires, which conducted it to one of the arches over the dining ttx-m, where U exploded witu terr.hc force, but destroying no property beyond iilackeuing the walls in the immediate viciuitv. Tbe same flash traveled down the wires which run through the long rus tic arcade to therailway station. Gen R. II. Jackson, from Governor's Island who is in command of the battalion reg uiars here, and Col. W. Butler Beck commanding battery A of the artillery, were walking slowly side by siae up the arcade, and were about a quarter of the way up and immediately under one of the electric light ouins watn ine nasa came. Gen. Jackson was knocked sense less, and fell heavily upon the board walk, cutting his head severely. Col Beck was also stunned, but soon recov ered enough to raise himself upon his e! bows, where he was found groaning beavily by the dozen or more who ran to the rescue. Gen. Jackson lay as if stone dead, with eyes starting from his head The same flash followed the wire down to the little railway station, in which four. teen or fifteen people were either stand ing or sitting. Tie thunderbolt exploded amoD2 them with a terrible noise. Mrs Fox, wife of a lawyer from Philadelphia, was standing immediately under one of the electric burners. She received a heavy shock, and sank senseless to tbe ground lying as if dead. Although the electric wires run to the cottage, the thunderbolt did not go over them, which is the more fortunate, for the reason that an electric burner is immediately over the casket in the parlor. On one of tbe posts of the rustic railway station the bark was snipped clean from top to bottom for wid'n of from three to four inches. Tbe lightning struck the cottage, conducted there by the electric wires, and knocked number of shingles off the roof, thence entered the nursery and ripped a large piece of p'aatering off the ceiling, but did no damage to anyone. The carbon in the electric light over the casket was con sumed and the light put out. The fami ly was for a time much alarmed until they found out that the damage was so tri- fiicg.
