GALENA, 111, April 29.—The people, of this 'City, which -wus the home of -Gen. 'Grant, celebrated Saturday . the '75th anniversary of. the illustrious commander's birth. The feature of the fes- -tivities was the'presentation to the city by, Judpe C. C. .Kohlsaat,'of Chicago, en be'half of his brother, H. H.'

The city was decked in bright, patriotic colors, and many visitors from Chicago and other places were present. Choercil HID Widow. CHICAGO, April 29.—Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant, the widow of the warrior, statesman, diplomat and citizen, came into a draped box at the Auditorium Saturday night. The vast audience, which had come to do honor to tho dead hero, nrose and, with one accord, filled the air with waving handkerchiefs und applause which refused to be silent. Mrs. Grant bowed, wiped her eyes and, from the enthusiasm of the reception, the thousands sank into silence and a thoughtful worship at the shrino which the day had erected. Mrs. Grant had Mrs. Sartoris at her right and her grandchildren at her left. This observance of tho hero's birthday anniversary was under the au&- pices of the Press club and the sentiment behind it brought out enough 310,000.000 worth of property and the loss of more than 100 lives, had a superficial area of '3,000,000 square feet. In 1SS4 a large fissure in the main dam ' developed. This was •filled with cement aud oak beams. : In 1SS5 the-feed canal burst above JJouzcy and carried away a length of •CO feet. Several bouses were destroyed on this occasion, but no lives were lost. Some time before this an inspector' of ' roads and bridges announced that the condition of tho dam was dangerous and notified tho people of JJouzey to watch for a possible disaster. In 1S03 there was a second accident to the wall near Epinal. During two years the wall of the dam, which should have been straight, has shown a bulge to the extent of about 3 feet. The chief engineer of roads and bridges who directed the building of the dam had great difficulty with his colleagues in order to carry out his plan of a straight dam instead of a curved one. This shape of the dam is now given as the cause of the accident, but there is a possibility that the disaster was caused by the illness for fifteen days of the inspector who was charged with the supervision of the dam.

"Ulysses & Grant was one of the people; in blood and ancestry n simple American- HI* was a life of simplicity of work, of tha absence of luxuries, of few books well learned, of tho influence of religion. He was no soldier of a parade: war was to him no piay. Bo was a commoner who believed that war was war: he fought for results and won. them. Ho gave us victories. Bat Grant was more than a soldier. The Qualities of good judgment and commocn sense, the Instinct of justice, his. high appreciation of the motive und spirit of our Institutions, made him In time of peace a ' statesman.
