Thousands of 1'eople Look Their l.:ist Upon the Face of the llrave Man The Procession to the Capitol A Fervent Prayer by ltev. nmn The Flarul Offering. Washington City, Dee. 31. The scenes at Gen. Logan's old home on the hills over looking this city were impressive Thursday morning. Early in the day the body, dressod in civilian costume of black broadcloth, the left breast covered with corps aud associa tion badges, was placed in the casket and the family were admitted to pay the last fare well alone with the dead. Tho house was crowded with veterans and public men aud it might almost be said to be full of flowers, while long rows of carriages seemed to ex tend for miles from its gatoi. At 11 o'clock the death chamber was opened, and senators and soldier s, veterans and visitors crowded in to pay their tribute of respect, while the sobbing widow and be reaved relatives lingered about tho casket which was embanked in flowers and partially covered by the national Hag. While the view of the remains were being takeu, tha silence was broken by the Rov. John P. Newman, who delivered an eloquent and fervent ex temporaneous prayer. The casket was then closed and Iwrne to the hearse which had been drawn to the door by four black horses. Here a procession formed, led by the honorary guards and guards of honor from t lie Grand Army posts. Loyal Legion, United States artillery, Mexican war veterans, etc., surrounded by a veteran body guard aud pall-bearers, and followed by tho congressional committees in carnages. In this order, with a Lnion et- eran corps band playing dirges, the cortege moved slowly down the hill, into tho city, and toward the capitol. Although it was a cold, raw wintry morn ing, with an inch or two of snow on the ground, that had fallen daring the night, yet as early as 10 o'clock, a crowd of several hundred people had gathered at the capitol, waiting to view tho remains t.f Senator Logan, which will liu in state in the rotunda from '2 p. m. Thurs- lay until 11 a. m. Friday. Tho drapery was removed from the senate chamler and the heavy drapery in tin rotunda, midway between the two hous-js, where the remains lie in state, was completed before 11 o'clock. The bier on which rested the remains of President Lincoln, Chief Justice Chase, President Gartield and Thaddous Stevens, was found in the crypt of the capital, recovered and used for the reception of Senator Lo gan's remains. About noon floral offerings brought from Calumet place began to arrive at the rotunda, and were put in ptisit ion about tho bier. At 1 :4- p. m. the cortege reached the capi tol ; the guards cleared the way at the vast entrance, and tho casket was placed uioii the bier in the rotunda. Then the floral offerings were carefully arranged about it aud at -o'clock the assemblage thtuands of people having by this time gathered about the ea-t entrance were permitted to liie past and view the face of tiie dead warrior and slates man.
