THE L.VST'JOUKXEY. PiTTSHUKOii, Pa., Feb. -20. — All through the long night the solitary light in the funeral car "burned above the casket in which lay the remains of the last of the great commanders of the rebellion. All night long a solitary watcher in the blue and crimson of the artillei-y uniform paced up and down, the narrow passage beside the casket. Through sleet and driving wind the long funeral train climbed the steep mountain grades. The track was slippery but the train kept steadily on at a good rate of speed. About 10 o'clock the members of the family and nearly all the others on the train retired for the night. Lancaster was reached at 11:20. No stop was made, hut the train ran through the station a,t a reduced rate of speed. On the depot platform, drawn up in line with heads uncovered, was a company of Gi'and Army veterans. Behind them and to the right and left of them stood several hundred people, men, women and children. Not a word was uttere d as the train rolled slowly by. It was the mute testimonial of respect by the people of Lancaster to one of the greatest of Generals. Harrisburg was reached at 12:15 o'clock. Everybody on board the train was 'asleep except the train hands. A great crou'd was in waiting to pay the last tribute of ^respect to the departed chieftain. Only the uniformed organizations and representatives of the Legislature were allowed to pass through the gates, but the hundreds of citizens packed the balcony of the station and watched the train while it stood in the depot and until it had disappeared from view. All the local military organizations, including 1 the City Grays, Governor's troop and City Gray Cadets, posts 48- and 11G Grand Army of the Republic, Union Veterans' Legion and ex-soldiers in the Legislative under command of Captain Skinner, who served with Sherman in the Atlanta campaign, were drawn up in line in the station and saluted the train. The legislative committee was headed by General Gobin. It comprised almost the entire Legislature. The train stopped ten minutes to make the necessary changes. Governor Patterson and staff, including Colonel 0. E. McClelland, superintendent of the Philadelphia division of the Pennsylvania railroad, left the train here. As the train entered the Station the band played "Nearer My God to Thee" and other appropriate selections.^ Altoona was reached at 4:05. Here engines were changed. Rev. S. P. Kelly, of Pittsburgh, representing the local committee of that place, boarded the train here. The next stop was for •water at New Florence at 5:50. At Edgewood the train stopped long enough for three of Lieutenant Fitch's children to get on. A Grand Army post of veterans was drawn up in line on the platform—standing with bared heads in the pouring . rain until the train moved away. At Wilkinsburg, the next station, a similar scene was witnessed as the train rushed by. As the funeral train neared Pittsburgh, and. the road crossings became more numerous, group after group of people were to be seen standing there, unmindful of the rain, only intent on honoring in their humble way the remains of the hero of "The March to the Sea." Pittsburgh was reached at 7:47. Thousands gathered along the line to see the funeral train pass. The crowd was greatest at the depot, where the Eighteenth .. Regiment and representatives from every Grand Army post in the city were waiting to do honor to the dead soldier. When the train drew into Allegheny City station the great crowd uncovered heads, the bands struck up a dirge and the veterans . first laid their tattered army flags beside the casket, • followed by a . lovely floral, emblem from the Union Veterans Legion. A heavily-draped engine drew up to take the place of a similarly clad, locomotive that had ended its run. The Eighteenth Regiment band played asol- dier's • requiem, "Rest," and the train started on its sad journey to the-West. At every suburban station and even- along the line crowds gathered, and all •uncovered in the momentary presence of the. dead. In the city, as the train- passed, bells tolled and minute guns were fired from the hill-sides, while all flags drooped at half roast in the driv-' ingrain. .' DEXKISOX, 0,, Feb. 20.—The first stop after Pittsburgh was Steubenville, O., where the train arrived at 8:52. The train stopped for a few minutes just outside the" station -to take water and a crowd of workmen surrounded the first car. When later it. pulled slowly into the 'station there was, a large assemblage in waiting.' In-the front rank stood the gray-haired veterans of Stanton Post, G. A. R., their heads uncovered. The eyes of many- were moistened. Tears stood in the eyes of General Howard us he looked at them. The train stoppe:! in the station for a few minutes only. There was an impressive silence, broken by the dull booming cannon at brief intervals. Just outside of Stcubenville the party took great interest in the flood, which came nearly to the railroad tracks, and which would have been up to the tracks and possibly h;iye washed them away if they had not been protected by some flat cars loaded with bar iron and steel which hud been run on the outer tracks to hold them down. At Cadiz Junction, at 10:0") o'clock the Grand Army post from Cadiz was or the platform and the speed of the train was slackened so they could get a glimpse of the casket through the open door.. 'At Scio at 10:10 o'clock there was a large crowd on the Ration platform. No stop was made before Dennison was reached; at 10:50 o'clock. A RUSH FOR FARMS.- Houu:-S<'ckers Already Ci-mped Jit Ash- liunl, WIs., to Pre-Empt r.;-iuls Xcxt Monday.

At 10 o'clock Wednesday night Albert Vincent and Abe Daley, of Chip.pewa Falls, took their places next to the receiving window of the Land Office and announced that they pro i posed to hold them until 'J o'clock Monday morning. 107 hours. They were soon joined by others, and Thursday night thirty people w r ere in line, including Miss Hattie Mulkilfine, of Ironwood, who declares that sh*i. will soon have a homestead at any cost. They are all provided with lunch baskets, and most all have cots and bedding. Special policemen have been sworn in, and as many will be appointed as necessary to keep the peace. In case of serious disturbance the Ashland Eifles will be put under arms and stationed around the land office, as was done at Wausau to protect the rights of those who are in line. There are 48,000 acres in the restored land, bat much of it is worthless, and the few choice selections are generally squatted upon by from one to five settlers. BIG FIGURES.

MANY~BILLS WILL FAIL. There Arc About, 1.3JO Mumures Whicli Congress Will Be Un»l>Iu to Act Upon Before the Sensinu Closes. WASHIXG-TON, Feb. 20.—At the clo*e of this Congress there will be . in the neighborhood of 1,800 bills on the calendar of the House which have been favorably reported, but which Will fail for want of time for their consideration. Some of the appropriation bills will probably be signed within an hour of the time of final adjournment, and it may be, as has often occurred, that the hands of the clock will have to Ibe turned back to prevent the failure of an appropriation bill. For the -first time in the history of the House that body held two distinct Legislative sessions during the same calendar day. Acting in accordance with a resolution adopted on Tuesday the Hotise met at 8 o'clock Thursday evening for the consideration of the immigration bill. The' chaplain was not present, but the proceedings were preceded by the reading of the journal and its approval. This action is. however, considered by parliamentary authorities to be irregular and it may be that the question will be raised as to its legality. The immigration bill was then considered, but without making much progress the House adjourned. Will Get Fifty Cents on the Dollar.
