I , WASHiaofow, Sept 6. The grtji moni-fcg moni-fcg moni-fcg dawned upon a seen of almost absolute stillness. Not a breath of wind stirred the leaves of th trees, and not a sound broke the perfect quiet Already a doable row of po- po- lioemen stood along the prcjetd route from the White House to the depot motionless and: wjib the. air of being; permanent fixtures of the street A small crowd bad gathered in front of the White House gates, the majority: of tbem sewgpaber correspondents, the rest euiiuj j negroes. Among un miw were three or four women. Some of them" bad roosted n the railings all sight Admittance was refused refused by the policeman on guard. In front of the porch,., half bidden by the distant foliage, stood an Adams Express wagon and four r fire carriages. A bustle was xrcpti-11 xrcpti-11 xrcpti-11 behind toe pillars. It was 5:30 o'elock. Gradually, as the minutes pawed, a little more bf became apparent in the city, Tb waiting crowd, increased until It numbered several eondrsxis.

It contained dW Ague Ague w Woodward, and Barnes. It was fallowed by anothsr in which were Mrs. Garfield and her daughter -Mollis -Mollis ; then by another with Mis Dr. Edson and some female servants, and by another with Mrs. Rockwell and her daughter. daughter. Miss Mollie Garfield and Miss 'Rockwell were both weeping. j In tbe meantime two toot bay horses had been, bitched to the express wagon and it had started slowly on Its Journey. Two negroes' walked at the horses' heads." The springs bad been newly sad carefully piled, and tbe moat experienced driver in Washington held the reins. Presently Presently it passed out The President lay upon the low walnut bed which he. has occupied in his sick-room,' sick-room,' sick-room,' his bead toward the driver. A white lamb'swool blanket, with rfed striped borders, covered his body. His foijebead was bound with a white cloth. His faoTwas turned to the left, and he seemed to "be asleep. A low Bunnurof irrepressible delight went up from the hitherto silent crowd. The face was of a tale yellowish tint but astonishingly full, con adering what everybody has been led to before. before. After be bad passed,- passed,- the spectators it ones fell to congratulating each other on his . unexpectedly good appearance. Doubt as to bis ability to stand the Journey vanished Instantly and confidence in .ti ultimate recovery filled every breast The two long stretcher-handles stretcher-handles stretcher-handles described in last sight's dispatch bad been firmly fastened to the sides of the bed. The jointed bars spoken of proved to be side bandies. The bed was supported at bbth sides as a preventive against Jarring upon the knees of friends seated upon the sides of the wagon.

Then he apparently apparently doted off. again. Wbeti the eortage seared tbe market the botchers rushed over in a mass to the avenue, and one of their horses standing near by whinnied loudly. This was the last sound that disturbed the stillness until Sixth-street Sixth-street Sixth-street and Pennsylvania-avenue Pennsylvania-avenue Pennsylvania-avenue was reached. There an immense multitude had' gathered. In anticipation of such a contingency, contingency, ropes had been stretched from tbe telegraph poles on both sides of the street and an extra force tK . policemen stationed there. There proved to be little need of these precautions, however. The Presidential train tood upon the temporary track across the . avenue. Tko President's car was in the centre. A pilot locomotive,' numbered 5, mounted jsruard a short distance down Sixth-street' Sixth-street' Sixth-street' Both engines engines had steam up. As the. express wagon approached. Dr. Agnew made his appearance at tbe side door of the car. . The wagon was drawn side on up to the door and the horses were detached. Then a squad of regular soldiers, wearing cork helmets and without arms, under oommand'of a Lieutenant -suddenly -suddenly appeared from no one knows where. They surrounded the wagon-and wagon-and wagon-and gently turned it about and backed it up to the door of the car. Their first attempt did not satisfy Dr. Bliss, and he waved them back. Jt required three efforts to fet the end of the wagon sattsfactorilv- sattsfactorilv- in line. It- It- was noticeable that every man handled the vehicle as though he thought it brittle. Then occurred tbe first demonstration. A man in the crowd ' cried out " God save the President !" - No one else spoke. Tbe sufferer motioned Oen. Swaim to him and whispered a few words In bis ear. The bearers caught bold of the handles of tbe improvised stretcher, and slowly tbe President began to move, feet forward, into tbe car. One of the side handles struck' gently against tbe car. Tbe sufferer visiblv winced with pain. This was the only contretemps. At 6:12 o'clock his entire body was inside the car, and be was being carried backward into tbe rear compartment A moment later he had disappeared, disappeared, and a sigh of relief went up from the multitude. The soldiers pulled the wagon away, the borses were bitched to. it and it was driven off. Bress do Lord," exclaimed a wrinkled colored dame, " I seed his face, I hope he soon get welL" This sentiment was echoed very generally, but no disturbing noise of any kind was made. Once inside the car,4 the President was lifted from the bed in which he had been carried and placed upon tbe new bed previously described. Mrs. Garfield was ready to receive him, and Immediately began fanning him. Dr. Bliss gave him some beef tea, which he swallowed with apparent relish. Xbe-old Xbe-old Xbe-old bed was carried along. The family" and household had previously taken their seats in tbe private car behind. Dr. Bliss came to tbe side door and nervously Informed the conductor conductor that all was ready, w He was asked the President's condition, and replied, ." First rate; bis pulse was down to 100 this morning; it is now 114." There was a little delay in obeying the conductor's slgnaL A train was backing into tho depot up tbe street and the engineer waited for it to go by. At length, at 6:18J o'clpck, the engineer touched the lever with an inconceivably delicate hand, and tbe train becan to move quietly" forward without strain 'or jar, but stopped airain alongside the depot to permit the other train to draw out again. At 6:30 another delicate touch and a second start was made, and slowly the cars passed away from the sight of tbe lingering multitude who as. slowly dispersed. Two-thirds Two-thirds Two-thirds of the first car was filled' with unoccupied seats, while the .press staid behind. As the train passed through the tunnel the President was within pistoLshot of Oniteau, the jail being directly over "it Laborers at one went to work to remove the temporary track. The sky which had been unclouded in tbe early morninz became became leaden and the weather grew insufferably insufferably hot Tbe day is being observed as a dav of prayer for the President's recovery, and all the departments are closed. After the departure of the President the city soon regained its normal condition, although tbe number of persons to be Feen on the streets during the day was greater than usual because of tbe closing of tbe departments. The weather continued to be oppressively hot and there was a -general -general feeling of thanksgiving this afternoon because, the President bad safely reached a better climate and better air. The White House, for so many weeks the centre of attraction for. anxious crowds, seemed deserted. The guards were withdrawn this afternoon. The dispatches sent from tho chief stations along the route were posted in the places where the daily bulletins nave heretofore appeared, and were eagerly read. In recognition of the nroclamation of tbe District Commissioners setting apart to-, to-, to-, day as a day of prayer in behalf of the President President union, meetings were held this forenoon in the Memorial Church, the Wesley Chapel,' tbe Presbyterian church on Four and a Half-, Half-, Half-, street Trinity Chnrch, and the Hebrew Tat ernacle on i-ighth-street i-ighth-street i-ighth-street i-ighth-street i-ighth-street ' Many clergymen took part in the services, which were informal, and the latest dispatches concerning tbe President's President's progress 'on his way to the shore were read. The figures given lh the. evening bulletin, which was displayed in several public places to-night to-night to-night caused some additional -anxiety, -anxiety, but it; was hoped that the high ; temperature and pulse were due only to the excitement of the journey and not to tbe approach' of any new complication in the case. -"- -"- -"- - THE STORY OF THE JOURNEY. ?

Tbe success attending attending every feature of moving the President President has been more complete 'than tbe most sanguine of his attendants 1 1 'VlMi 1 he is resting to-night to-night to-night within less than ioordi of a heavy rolling surf, and, instead' of the vapors of tbe Potomao marshes, the breeze from tbe great pore and purifying ocean is making him glad and evoking thanksgivings in the hearts of all about him. The important fact in the rapid removal Is that, it has drawn very little upon his diminished store of strength. His pulse began to go up toward the end of thetrip, showing that much more could not, well have been accomplished. without a rest Soon af tor arriving, however, e began to rest comfortably, and toward evening be. fell into a quiet sleep, and his pulse began Jto subside.' He has taken bis food well throughout the day, and during tbe afternoon it was the opinion of all about him that he was In a better condition than he would have been bad he remained at the White House for another day. . CoLCorbin. who helped to carry bin from bis room at tbe White House to-day, to-day, to-day, aad came on tie train, gives a very interesting account : of the jenmey. The President was one of the first to tie wide awake-for awake-for awake-for the trip. After 4 o'elock he would not try to sleep. He was anxious toga His one slight apprehension was that it might be difficult to carry him down stairs, but as soon- soon- as that was done so easily and so safely he seemed' to- to- dismiss all anxiety as to any part jof the trip. He was strongly moved on bidding good-bye good-bye good-bye to the attendants attendants at tbe White House, but recovered himself soon. -It -It was an evident pleasure to him to see tho crowd on the avenue at the depot Their following him and their most respectful demeanor, touched him deeply. The first 15 r 20 miles of the trip were made at the rate of S5 miles an hour. Tbe President was delighted delighted with his entire freedom from trouble of any kind and urged a faster rate. A quietening" quietening" of speed brought no inconvenience and be several times said they could run faster a far as he was concerned. He said this once or twice wnen the train was making over a mile a minute. . Everything was still on the Una wben the special train passed. The only noise outside of the .train' was in passing stations, crossing bridges, and passing close to standing trains, but the President did not seem to notice any of these thing any more than on bis trips wben a well man. He seemed, how-ever, how-ever, how-ever, to have a strong sense of his weak condition, condition, and to realise that so long a trip in extremely extremely hot weather would affect a well man appreciably, and muss, of necessity, make a severe strain on bis store of strenrth. and so be urged the ektremeof speed. Tbe average for tbe lonrneyi was over 65 miles an hour, in cluding two sto . A good part of the distance was run at a mu :h more rapid rate. By careful observations n ade by several watchers two. miles were run In 55 seconds, two In 56, two in 67. and two in I 'J. .

The rate of speed was foun I to be canning no trouble, and the President's vish to go faster was gratified. Tbe population along the entire line seemed to be watch; ng for . him.

M., bntiwas not made public satQ 8 o'clock. It luted that in anticipation of tb journey I of to-dar to-dar to-dar . the . President was evidently somewhat excited jlast night At ; 5:80 this morning his pulse was 119; temperature, 99 8-10. 8-10. 8-10. and respiration, 18. The fatigue incident to the journey was ex-.hibited ex-.hibited ex-.hibited this evening by an, increase in temperature temperature to 101 6-KT 6-KT 6-KT and a rise iA the pulse to lt4. - Tbe respiration remained at 191 These figures would be considered . alarming were it not so evident that they are due to the king journey front the capital rather than to any relapse in the president's real condition. Just after the evening bulletin was issued Tbe Tiara's correspondent met Dr. Bliss and obtained an interesting story of the journey. " I haven't slept for 43 hours, and I'm tired." said the Doctor. Tbe President has thought -about -about and pondered over this trip a great deal, and last night he spoke about it a; good many times, after calling up members cf the family and talking to them about it He seemed preoccupied with the matter. We observed his excitement in an increase increase of bis pulse. The President slept fairly well last night perhaps not quite so well as some other nights. He took his nourishment nourishment regularly, but bis sleep was fitful and broken. Sometimes -. -. he slept 15 or 20 minutes at a time, and once he rated three-quarters three-quarters three-quarters ot an hour. We did not feel that be was in the best possible condition to be brought here this morning. He bad been in possibly as good a condition two of three times before ; but be was in a fair condition and one we felt would warrant us in moving him. After we started, his pulse went steadily down to 108, 106, 104v 102. This point was reached when we were-' were-' were-' at or near Phila- Phila- ' phla. I think, had the journey ended at Philadelphia, the 'President would have suffered hardly any fatigue; but the long stretch to Long Branch was enough to tire him. His pulse after leaving Philadelphia rose, and it was about 110 when we reached the cottage here. We did not think it advisable to dress the wound in the Presi-dent'sjback Presi-dent'sjback Presi-dent'sjback during the trip, but we dressed bis face and bathed him on tbe train. After we got here we dressed the wound, aad found it lh a very gratifying condition. There was more granulation, it was fresher and better, better, ' and the discharge was excellent We can see, too, that external healing healing is going - on nicely. An abrasion of the skin on the back near the wound is also healing, showing that the process of . building up is going on steadily. The incidents of the journey were very few. Everything was as quiet as possible. There were very few persons persons in the President's car. Of course visited him often to take his pulse and see how be was getting along. Once, when we were traveling at the rate of CO miles an hour, I said to him : Mr. President if the movement affects you in any way we will reduce the speed.' 'No,' be answered, 'let her go.' Afterward I remarked that we would stop and give bini bis bath. ' No,' said be, ' to get to the end of this trip is more important now than the bath.' The President was given food regularly every two hours, during the journey, but until to-night to-night to-night he had no enema given him. His food consisted of from two to four ounces of beef extract each time. The story that the President was given morphine is absolutely untrue." Dr. Bliss continued : "He was given! no morphine, no opium in any shape, and no anodyne of any kind at alL After we dressed his wound -. -. this afternoon, we changed bis clothing, gave bim 'a bath and put bim to bed. He was unable to get to sleep, however, until about 6 o'clock, wben be had two or three naps of 15 to 20 minutes each. About 7 o'clock, however, be fell into a quiet Bleep. ' We expect that the President's restless-nes restless-nes restless-nes will hardly be overcome to-morrow. to-morrow. to-morrow. We are. not at all alarmed at the increase of pulse and temperature shown in to-night's to-night's to-night's bulletin. That was expected by us, and is attributable solely to .the effects of the long ride. . I do not think tbe increase in temperature is the effect of the old evening fever. All the President's symptoms to-night to-night to-night are due to fatigue." I Dr. Bliss said that the President remarked, after he had been in his room a short time. "This is very refreshing." The bed is placed -so -so that tbe patient can look out directly upon 'tbe ocean. There is a capital circulation of air through the room, and to-night to-night to-night the breeze became so strong tbat the doctors ordered the windows closed. . Dr. Bliss expressed the most emphatic approval of all the arrangements 1 made and carried out for tbe journey. ' As we., got into-Elberon," into-Elberon," into-Elberon," said be, ' 1 took a retrospect tive view of the trip, and I said to tbe others on the train, tbat 1 could not think, looking back, of a single thing that could have been improved. Tbe Pennsylvania Railroad Company are certainly certainly deserving of unlimited praise tor the magnificent work they have done. " After the physicians had seea the President safely stowed away in bis bed, Attorney-General Attorney-General Attorney-General Attorney-General MaoVeagh hai a long talk with them regarding the journey and' the President's President's condition. . Mr. MacVeagh said to Tbe - TlXKS'd correspondent that tbe President surprised the doctors by the way in which he bore tbe journey, but of course, tfiey expected be would show signs of fatigue for some time 12 hours at least Tbe physicians, however, considered their patient in an absolutely better condition than wben they started from Washington.

Within two boars after the arrival of the President's train at Elberon, J. Stanley Brown, the President's-private President's-private President's-private secretary, bad established his office in a cottage on the opposite side of Ocean:avenue, fronting tbe Elberorl Like all tbe others who came through on tbe train, Mr. Brown was delighted delighted with the prompt aad exact manner in Vhich every detail of the journey was successfully successfully carried out "One of tbe pleasantest things about the whole trip," said Mr. Brown to The Tihes's correspondent "was tbe admirable conduct of tbe people alon the entire route from Washington Washington to' , Elberon. Everybody in every town and hamlet ' seemed to know the train was coming, and at every station and farm-bouse farm-bouse farm-bouse people lined the track; but they teemed to feel that noise was net goad for the President President and so, instead of cheering, as one might naturally expect them to do, they simply took off their hats and stood in silence as tbe train went past Even tbe street urchins in Washington Washington were quiet as we left the city. In Baltimore Baltimore and Philadelphia there were great crowds, mostly of laboring men, and nearly every "man stood with uncovered bead while we wore passing. I helped carry the President President to the express wagon at the White House," Mr. Brown continued, "and is was the first time I had seen bim for 1? days. His face was much less emaciated than I bad expected to find it After we got him into the car and during tbe trip the President took considerable considerable interest in what was going on. ' There were scarcely any incidents worth mentioning 6a the train. One of the most touching things was the manner of the people at tbe few places where we stopped to t&ke in coal and water for tbe engine. The people would -crowd -crowd op around the train and whisper , ' How is tbe President f How does be stand the ride f and similar questions, but tbev were always asked in whispers. No one would talk loudly, and everybody seemed anxious not to do anything that could possibly possibly disturb Mr. Garfield. Th arrangements on the train were simply perfect - At the bs-i bs-i bs-i nning of each division oo th road, for in- in- stance, a skilled jtelegrabber and lineman thoroughly familiar with tbe route were, taken on board. If any accident of any kind bad happened (be lineman would aim-, aim-, aim-, ply climb the nearest telegraph pole and cut the wires. Then tbe operator would bav connected connected the out ends of the wire with an instrument instrument and opened a telegraph office right on the spot so that whatever was wanted could have been ordered at once. Then too, a pilot engine engine ran 15 minutes ahead of ns and evsrr train it passed came to a stand-still stand-still stand-still at once, so me eirra noise or passing cars at full speed was avoided,. The train was run at the rate of speed tbe railroad men judged would cause the kast jar and motion to the President's President's coach. Every few minutes Mr. Ely, who had charge of tbe train, would inquire of the physician if any discomfort was caused byhe speed, but the result proved that the railroadL men were the best judge on that point Part of the way we ran 60 miles an hour and three of the miles between Philadelphia and Mon mouth Junction the speed was increased to w -i -i i miies an nonr. l tea you, we all "yyOu iairij fpun over tne iracic .

Kelley. of tbat institution, institution, was driven into the covered way which divides the kitchen of the Francklyn cottage from tbe main building. . Some of the nervous spectators started all sorts of wild rumors concerning tne reason for the presence of the ambulance. It was learned, however, that early in the morning if was suggested to Attorney-General Attorney-General Attorney-General Attorney-General MacVejagh that it would do no barm to have an ambulance' ready in case some unforseen trouble, should prevent the President's car from being, run over tbe branch leading to the cottage. With Mr. MacVeagh's consent a telegram was sent to the New-York New-York New-York Hospital, and an ambulance arrived arrived on tbe next train. 5 ' The track of tbe branch road was carefully oiled this morning, so that, the new rails would not give out any harsh, grating sound as the wbeels of the cars passed over them.

Secretary Hunt and . wife, .Secretary Kirkwood and wife, Postmaster-General Postmaster-General Postmaster-General Jameai and Secretary Lincoln. None of these gentlemen had been at the White House in tbe morning to see the removal, and they listened with the greatest interest to tbe descriptions of the scene given by tbe newspaper correspondents on tbe train. At Baltimore dispatches were received by Postmaster-General Postmaster-General Postmaster-General James, conveying to them tho information of the favorable condition condition of tbe President . The only . other telegrams they got on this .subject during during the journey were two handed to them during the short wait at Philadelphia.

FINAL PREPARATIONS AT ELBERON. : Loo Bbasch, Sept 6. The track from a Elberon station to th Francklyn cottage was practically finished about 8 o'clock this morning. The laborers, who bad been hard at work during the night drove the last spike in tbe last rail with a prolonged cheer, and then broke up into small gangs, distributed over tbe half-mile half-mile half-mile road, and began th work of ballasting ballasting the tracks, filling in between th ties,&ei Hour before the Presidential train arrived nothing remained to be done. Soon after daylight daylight an engine was brought ep from Long Branch and switched upon th new track to test it As th engine struck the first curve, a few feet from tbe main line, tbe rails suddenly spread, and tbe locomotive was derailed. The curve bad been made too abort ' A host ot workmen Very soon bad the engine lighted, and then tbe curve was made wider. Again th test engine was run oyer th curve, and: again . th rails spread. . The curve was still too short. A second .tim the track wa relaid, and there was no further trouble with tbe curve. During the forenoon drill engine No. 4 was slowly run over the road as ar test and the effect upon every rail and tie was carefully noted. Nothing Nothing was found wrong. Just within the Elberon Elberon Hotel grounds the smoke-stark smoke-stark smoke-stark of th engine cam in contact with a number of telegraph telegraph wirvs running to the hotel, and tangled them uo badly. Men- Men- were put to work rearranging rearranging the wires at once and the tangle was soon straightened outand the wire stretched high enough to allow a train to pass under them. , V Soon after 9 o'clock a detachment of 30 soldiers soldiers from the First Artillery, arrived at Elberon Elberon from Governor's Island, tinder command of Capt In galls. A portion of th men wer immediately set to work putting up an awning on the piazza in the rear of the Francklyn cottage, cottage, extending to th railroad track, so that no ray of tbe broiling sun could descend npon President Garfield as be was taken from the car to bis room. A short timo lwfore th - Presidential . party reached the grounds the soldiers wer . placed on picket duty, and tbe throng ot visitors overrunning overrunning the lawn were compelled to retire. The picket line (inclosed three sides of a square, nearly in the- the- centre of. which the cotfage stood, the fourth side being effectually guarded by the ocean. No one was allowed within tbe inclosure thus formed,' and the President's physicians found no annoying crowd to interfere interfere with the proper removal of their distinguished distinguished patient Attorney-General Attorney-General Attorney-General MacVeagh was out of bed bright and early this morning, and was an exceedingly, exceedingly, industrious person during the rest of the day. i!As he was the only representative of the Cabinet here, tbejbtirden of superintending superintending all tbe final details for the President's President's reception fell upon bis shoulders. Together witb CoL Jones, of the Elberon; Elberon; ex-Collector ex-Collector ex-Collector Murphy, and Major Arnold, of tbe United States Army, Mr. MacVeagh looked after the testing ot the track, the final airing of the cottage, tbe disposition disposition of the military guard, and a thousand and one other matters. Every few minutes from the time the Presidential party left Washington until tbe train arrived here the Attorney -General -General was in receipt of dispatches from the President's physicians stating what progress was being made on the journey and the condition of their patient Each dispatch was of the most encouraging and gratifyiag character, and as Mr. MacVeagh read bis news to tbe people surrounding aim be was not the only one to ejaculate " Thaak God I" many times. Early in the morning people from all the hotels and most of tbe cottages for miles along the coast began to arrive at Elberon in all sorts of conveyances and on foot Ocean Grove. Asbury Park. Sea Girt, Spring Lake, Deal Beach, and all the other towns and hamlets hamlets in the vicinity were well represented among the visitors. By tbe middle of the ferenoon scores of carriage lined Ocean-avenue, Ocean-avenue, Ocean-avenue, running along the beach, and Lincoln-avenue, Lincoln-avenue, Lincoln-avenue, the driveway between Elberon Station Station and tbe boteL The lawn 1 around tbe President's cottage was covered with hundreds hundreds of visitors, who wandered about in tho hot sun, closely examined every portion of the exterior of the cottage, tried to peer in at the windows, admired the beautiful flowers surrounding surrounding the building, ran along the railroad track, bothered the soldiers and workmen, and in general conducted themselves as ssch crowds always do. When they were finally' driven back by the pickets the visitors formed in a dense body on tbe edge of the picket line, and stood patiently waiting nntil the President's President's train came to a stand-still stand-still stand-still alongside the cottage; and tbe sufferer was safely placed in his new quarters. . ; . .- .- .'.'..
