NEW YORK, .Feb. 16.—Immediately after General Sherman's death General* Howard and.Slocum, who were on General Sherman's staff, were sent for. Some two weeks ago the General made known his wishes as to his burial. He particularly requested that his body should not lie in state anywhere. He also requested that the funeral be a strictly military one. He said that he did not care particularly for any mili- tarj' observances here in New York, but that he did want a military burial in St. Louis, which would be participated in by bis old comrades in arms. He also requested that the funeral rites be not in conformity with any particular form of religion. He wanted a soldier's burial. The body is now lying 1 embalmed in the room where the General died—the back room on the second floor. The features are natural, with the exception of a slight swelling on the right jaw and under both eyes. The eyes are closed and the arms folded across the breast. Less than half an hour after the news of the General's death was flashed over tbe country messages of condolence began to arrive. The messages were received by Private Secretary Barrett and Senator Sherman. Senator Sherman said that nearly 3,000 dispatches had been received.

Johnston, Vice-President Morton, Justice Harlan, General Alger, James G. Elaine and ex-President Hayes. In addition to these there were telegrams from the foreign Ministers and heads of various State departments from all over the country and Europe- The outward mark of respect that was shown iu New York City upon, the announcement of the death of General Sherman was the universal raising of flags at half-mast on all the public buildings, the newspaper offices and on many stores and private residences. Dispatches from all parts of the country state that Governors and State and local authorities generally have issued proclamations and have taken other official recognition of the death.

General Sherman enjoyed the esteem of all parties and died without a stain upon the luster of his arms—as free from reproach as from fear." AGAIN FIRST IN THE FIELD! A CHOICE AT LAST.
