R T a o r 311 Market Street. EX BOUTE TO THE GRAVE. NEW YORK, Feb. 19.—New York paid every possible tribute of respect to the memory of General Sherman, \vhose last years have been spent as one of its citizens. The dawn of his funeral clay opened bright and clear. Its light fell on thousands of the National flags floated at half mast from public and private buildings alike. The courts remained closed; no public business that was not compelled by law was transacted. The exchanges closed at noon, general business was brought almost to a standstill, and all who could do so ceased their daily occupations to do honor to the dead soldier. At an early hour the people beKin to assemble in West Seventieth street opposite the residence of General. Sherman. From almost every house along the street the American flag floated, the greater number being in deep mourning. There were few visitors in the early hours of the morning. Only the most intimate friends and a few old soldiers were admitted, and the latter were obliged to show certificates that" they had served in the army. Rev. Thomas Ewing Sherman, the son whose arrival has been so anxiously awaited, arrived at the house at 1:30 a. m. He was welcomed home, not by his beloved father, but by his brother P. T.- Sherman,-' and his sisters. Mrs. Thackara and Miss Rachel Sherman. He did not go then to view the remains of his father,, but after a short, sad talk with his brother and sisters, retired for the night, to pass the hours till morning in restless sleep. In the morning at 7:30, just before taking an early breakfast with the family, the son entered the room in which lay all that remained of his renowned lather. Silently he looked at the features, once so familiar to him, but now overspread by dcata's pallor. The casket remained open' during the forenoon for any distinguished visitors that might arrive from the hotels. Touching the subject of General Sherman's religious belief, his son said in a positive way, that may well remove all doubt on' the matter: "My father was baptized in the Catholic church, was married in the Catholic church and attended the Catholic church until the outbreak of the civil war. Since that time my father had not been • a communicant; but he always told me: 'If there is any true religion, it is the Catholic religion.' " Continuing Father Sherman said: "A week ago my father received absolution and extreme unction at the hands of Father Taylor. My father was unconscious at the time, but this fact has no important bearing, for the sacraments coxild be administered to any person whose mind could be interpreted as desirous of receiving them. I will hold services over my father's remains at 12 o'clock in the presence of the immediate family. They will embrace the reading of the regular funeral service prescribed by the ritual of the Roman Catholic church." All the door-steps along Seventy-first street were crowded with interested spectators and windows were filled with expectant faces. The street was kept quite free from pedestrians, but the side streets were crowded with the forming troops and citizens. About 12:25 the caisson, draped in black and drawn by four horses, was drawn up in front of the Sherman residence. The horses were mounted by regulars and an army officer was in charge. Behind the caisson was an orderly leading the. black charger which bore the military trappings of the General. A black Velvet covering almost hid the horse from view, but the boots and saddle were plainly conspicuous. The sergeant in charge was Sergeant Jordan, and the man whose honor it was to lead,the black horse with the trappings was Private A. T. Webb, of the Second Battery. The services of prayer began promptly on the hour. At five minutes to 12 Father Taylor left tlie General's late residence and entered No. 77 Seventy- first street and summoned the boy choir of St. Francis Xavier. The services were over at 12:30. The prayers were read by Rev. Father Sherman. Close to the casket stood the other son, P. T. Sherman. In' the front parlor were all the other members of the family and Secretary ^ Shrine^ and wife and Mrs. Damrosch. Father Sherman was assisted by Rev. Father Taylor -and two other priests. Father Sherman in conducting the simple services read from j the Scriptures the passage beginning: "I am the resurrection and the life." After this two selections were sung from the oratorio of Elijah. Father Sherman again read the Scriptures and the Miserere from Mendelssohn vnsa given. Prayer was then offered by thV son, and the conducting music was Piua Jesus. "0. Rest in the Cord," was ona of the selections. There were .about 150 ' persons present at the services. The greater number were relatives. | GHAND ARMY OF THE but'aracmg- the friends were Mrs. Grant and Senator "Cameron. The hour at which the head of the funeral procession was to move from Seventy-first street was 2 o'clock, but long before that time spectators began to take np their places along the route of march. The decorations along this route were not so numerous or elaborate as when General Grant was buried, but, nevertheless, they were strikingly handsome and in great profusion. Every, house in the block where General .Sherman lived so long was tastefully decorated with draped flags. Along I-'ifty-seventh street, from Urondwuy to Fifth avenue, nearly every bmvsp WHS clr.'i nod. a.nrl no to noon the work of decoration continued. Fifth avenue, from the plaza at Central park to the arch at Washington square, presented a bewildering array of draped and half-masted flags. The club-house of the Seventh Regiment veterans w;is handsomely draped, and the Union League Club Building presented an elaborate' display of drapery. Especially noticeable were the somber decorations of the big hotels along the line. The Hotel Brunswick. Hoffman House, the Fifth Avenue, Grand Central and Metropolitan hotels excelled in this respect. The offices of the Adams Express Company throughout the city are elaborately covered with mourning 1 , draperies and flags. The big wholesale houses on Broadway have their flags half-masted, and the smaller stores are tastefully draped. The side streets were similarly decorated. As the hour of 2 drew near the scene in the immediate neighborhood was one full of lif;\ Mounted officers and orderlies dashed through the streets, the polished trimmings of their horses' equipments flashing in the bright sunlight and their yellow and scarlet-lined capes flying in the breeze. / The order of the column was as follows: Mounted and Foot Police.
