The president of the United States
has just received the sad liduigs of
the death of that illustrious citizen
and ex-president of thoTJnited States,
General Ulysses S. Grant, at ML Mc
Gregor, in the state of New York, to
which place he had lately been re
moved in an endeavor to prolong his
life. In making this announcement
to the people of the United States
the president i3 impressed with the
magnitude of the nublic I033 of a
military leader, who was in the
o , hour of victory magnanimous, and
a ' amid duster serouo and self sus-
tained. Who, in every station,
5 whether as a soldier or as a chief
magistrate twice called to nower bv
his fellow-countrymen, trod unswerv
ingly the pathway of dnlv, unde
terred by doubt, single-minded and
straightforward. The entire country
nas witnessed witu deep emotion his
prolonged and patient struggle with
a painful disease, and has watched
by his "couch of suffering with tear
ful sympathy. The destined end has
come ac jasr. aim nis spirit nas re
turned to the Creator who sent it
forth. The great heart of the na
tion that followed him with love and
and pride, bows now in sorrow above
him dead tenderly mindful of his
virtues, his great patriotic services
and the loss occasioned by his death,
lu testimony of respect to the mem
ory of General Grant, it is ordered
that the executive mansion and the
several departments in TVashineton
be draped in mourning for a period
of thirty days, and that the public
business houses shall on the day of
funeral be suspended, and the secre
taries of war and of the navy will
cause orders to be issued that annro
priate military and naval services be
rendered on that day.
In witness whereas I have set my
hand and caused tho seal of the Uni
ted Slates to be affixed.

GRANTS LAST MOMENTS.
The morning had passed five min
utes beyond 8 o'clock and there was
not ono of tho strained and waiting
watchers but who could mark the
nearness of the life-tide to its final
ebbing. Dr. Douglas noted the near
ness of the supreme moment, and
quietly approached the bedside. A3
he bout above it tho sorrow of the
gray-haired physician seemed closely
allied with that of the family. Dr.
Shrady also drew near. It was seven
minutes after 8 o'clock, and tho eye3
ot tue general were closing. His
breathing grew more hushed ai the
las functions of the heart and lungs
were hastened to tho closing of the
ex-president's life. A peaceful ex
pression seemed to be deepening in
tue nrm ana strong-lined face, and it
was reflected as a closing comfort in
the sad hearts that beat quietly un
der the stress of loving suspense. A
minute more passed and was closing
as the general drew a deeper breath.
There was an exhalation like that of
one relieved of a long and anxious
tension. Members of the group weie
impelled each a step nearer tho bed,
and each waited to note the next res
piration, but it did not come. There
wa3 absolute stillness in the room
and a hush of expectancy, so that no
sound broke the silence, save the
inging of birdt in the pines outside
the cottago and the measured throb
bing of the engine that all night had
waited by tho mountain depot. "It's
all over," quietly spoke Dr. Douglas,
and there came then heavily to each
witness the realization that General
Grant was dead. Then the doctors
withdrew, the nurse closed the eye
lids and composed the dead general's
head, after which each of the family
group passed to the bedside, one
after the other, and touched their
lips upon the quiet face so lately
