but never before today has the highaet dignitary in the land bowed his head within its historical walls to receive tho blessing of tho church on his union in the holy bond of matrimony. From tho very dawn of the wedding day the city seemed alive to the approaching event. The day opened with a gray and threatening cWy, but as it advanced the clouds lifted and tho sun came ont warm and bright. Large numbers of people hovered about the whito house crounda and loitered through tho park urine the afternoon and until six o'clock tho crowd had swollon to several hundred. Suddenly tho strains of the wedding march flowed through the open windows and thcro was a general exclamation from the outside crowd that tho service had begun; then there came a tantalizing hush within the walls which was soon ended by tho strains from tho bridal chorus and it was thcroby known that tho ceremony was over.

One by jono the lights sprang up and tho great burners on the portico cast their ef-lulgence over tho pavements. Tho scene resembled a summer night's festival and the crowd gave itself up to tho enjoyment of the delightful music Washington, Juno 2. Miss Folsom arrived eafo in Washington shortly utter 3:30 o'clock this morning and wa3 met by Col. Lamont. There were many persons in tho depot when the train arrived.

Tho train was composed of four cars and President Roberts' private car. Tho latter was occupied by Miss Folsom and party. Miss Folsom was dressed in black andworoa wrap of tho same color to protect her from tho morninc air, a stylish hat, trimmed with white and black ribbons and black kid gloves. She is of medium size. Ilcr manner is shy and restless.

She was escorted by Colonel Iiamont to a carriage and was driven direct to the whito house with Mrs. Folsom, who looked a little tired, and Mrs. Rogers of Syracuse. Conductor It. Mitchell, who was in charge of tho train, said that tho journoy was quiet and dovoiJ of interest.

There was a slight misty rain falling when the train arrived. Lator on tho clouds broke away and tho prospect now is for fino weather. Whilo tho whito houso is entirely closed to visitors today and tho usual afternoon reception by tho president omitted, insido all was bustle and confusion in preparation for tho wedding. Several express wagons wero unloaded of numerous packages of various sizes at tho main entrance, which wero at onco removed from sight. Somo wero addressed to the president, somo to Miss Folsom, somo to Col.

Lamont, and one to Mrs. Grover Cleveland. Most of them were undoubtedly wedding presents. 7:25 p. m.

Tho president and Miss Folsom havo just been married. About 0:30 o'clock tho wedding guests began to arrive, their carriages rolling up to tho main door of tho mansion through the groat iron gates on Pennsylvania avenue. The first arrival was Secretary Lamar, at lie was closely followed by the Rov. Dr. Sunderland and wife, and during tho next few minutes thcro camo in quick succession P36tmaster General Vilas and wife, Mr.

Wilson S. Bissel, Secretary and Mrs. Endicott, Secretary Itayard, Secretary and Mrs. Whitney, and Secretary Manning and his wife. Romoving their wraps in tho state dining room, all the quests proceeded to tho blue room, where they were received by Miss Rose Clovoland.

For a few minutes the guests chatted gaily, but tho conversation was quickly suspended at 7:13, when tho selected orchestra from tho Marino band, stationed in the corridor, struck up the familiar strains of tho wedding march from Mendelssohn, "'Mid Summer Night's Dream." Tho following is a complete list ot those present: Mrs. Folsom. mother of tho bride; Rev. William Cleveland, tho president's brother; Miss Cleveland, Mrs. Iloyt, tho president' sisters; Thomas F.

S. Bissel, of Buffalo, the president's former law partner, Dr. and Mrs. Byron Sunderland. Attorney Genoral Garland, although in- Titod.

was not present. All eyes wero turned to the doorway to catch tho first glimpse of the coming bride and groom. Starting from the western corridor on the upper floor, the president came slowly down the western staircase with his bride leaning on his orm. They were unac companied, even tho bride's mother await ing her with the other gucsis. Passing through tho central corridor, the bride and groom entered the blue room and took a position near the southern wall, which was completely hiddrn from tight by a mass of wedding palms, tropical grasses and an endless variety of the choicest flowers.

The crystal chandalier poured a flood of mellow radiance upon the scene and the color of the massive banks of tcarlotbcgc-njas and royal jacquiminot roses, mingled jrith the blue and silver tint ot the frescoed walla and ceiling, gaTe a warm and gloaing tone to the whole brilliant interior. The delicate ivory shades or tho bride's wedding gown round an exquisite setting in tho masses or crimson roses. Immediately beyond was tho president, in full evening dress with turn down collar, whito lawn necktie and whito enameled studs. A silence fell upon tho assemblage as Drl Sunderland stepped forward to his position fronting the wedding pair, with Rev. William Cleveland, the president's brother, at his left hand.

In a distinct tone of voico and with a deliberate utterance the doctor began the simple and beautiful wedding service as follows: "Forasmuch as we aro assembled together to observe the holy rites of marriage, it is needful that wo seek the blessing of the great God our Father, whose institution it is and therefore I beseech you now to follow with reverent hearts in prayer to Him. Almighty and everlasting God, tho father of our spirits; the framer of our bodies.the giver of every good and perfect gift, Thou who canst see tho end from tho beginning, who knowest what is best for children and hast appointed the holy riteof marriagotobe observed throughout all generations; regard now, wo beseech Thee, Thy servant, our chief magistrate; endow him plenteously with Thy grace and fill him with wisdom to walk in Thy ordinances. Bo very nigh to him in tho midst or his many cares and grave responsibilities, day by day. May Thy law direct him and Tby strength uphold him and be Thou forever his sun and shield. And bo graciouslv pleased to look down upon this Thy daughter even as Thou didst favor the chosen Rebecca and many noblo women that have adorned tho world.

May sho indeed be a precious boon or God to her husband, to cheer and help him continually; a woman gifted with tho beauty or the Lord and shedding the sneet influences or Christian life upon tho nation in whoso sight she is to dwell. Wilt Thou approve what we. Thy servant, come to do in Thy name by Thy authority and under the laws or tho land in which wo live, and assist them, this man and woman, wro aro to be united in the bonds of holy wedlock according to the instruction of Thy word. Mercifully bo pleased, Almighty God, to vouchsafe to each of them Tby grace, that thoy may well and truly weih tho unfailing vows which they aro now about to make to each other in tho presence of the company and beforo Thee, and that they may be enabled Lercafter at all times to live together in tho solemnization or this union with joy unspeakable and fill! or glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Addressing tho company tho doctor said: "Jlsmaga is honorable among all men, in that a man shall leave his father and mother and shall clcavo unto his wifo and they twain shall bo one creature. It was confessed by patriarch and priest, prophet and apostle. It was confirmed by tho teachings and adorned with tho presence of the Redeemer and has been honored by the faithful keeping or all good men and women since tho world began. It is not, therefore, to bo undertaken lightly or unadvisably, but soberly, and in tho fear of God. Into this holy estato this man and this woman como now to enter.

If any now can show just cause why they may not bo lawfully united in marriage let him now speak or elso hereafter forovcr hold his pcaco. To tho brido and groom. "If you desire to bo united in marriago you will signify the same by joining your right hands, (tho groom and brido joined hands.) "Grover," said tho minister, "do you tako this woman whom you hold by tho hand to bo your lawful, wedded wire; to live together after God's ordinance in tho holy estate or wedlock, do you promise to lovo her, cherish, comfort and keep her in sickness and in health; in joy and in sorrow, and forsaking all others keep you only unto her so long as you both shall The groom (firmly) "I do." Doctor Sunderlfbd: "Francos, do you take this man whom you hold by tho hand to bo your lawful wedded husband; to live together after God's ordinanco in tho holv slato or wedlock; do you promiso to lovo him, honor, contort and keep him in sickness and health, in joy and sorrow, and forsaking all others keep you only unto him so long as you both shall live!" Tho brido responded in a low but clear voice, "I do." Doctor Sunderland: (solemnly) "Forasmuch as Grover and Frances bavo hero agreed and covenanted to livo together after God's ordinanco in the holy stato or wedlock, and confirmed the samo by giving and taking a wedding ring, now, theretore, in tho presenco or this company, in the name or tho Father and tho Son and tho Iloly Ghost, I pronounce and declare that they aro husband and wire, and what God hath joined together let no man put asunder. Tho Rov. Dr.

Cleveland then pronounced tho following benediction: God, tho Father; God, the Son, and God, tho Holy Ghost, bless, preserve and keep you; the Lord mercifully fill you with all temporal and spiritual blessings and grant that ou may so live together in this world that in tho world to como you my havo lif cveriasting. Amen. At tho conclusion of the ceremony, Mrs. Folscm, showing traces of great emotion, was tho first to tender her congratulations to tho newly married pair. Sho was followed by Miss Cleveland, tho Rey.

Mr. Cleveland and tho other relatives and friends in turn. Whilo tho congratulations were in progress, the band, undor tho leadership of Profcsor Sousa, performed tho bridal chorus and march from Copenhagen, and to this music the president and his wife led tho way into the statelv east room. The adornments of this noble hall were in keeping with its majestic proportions, and its ample space and brilliant illuminations afforded an opportunity for a fitting display of the ladies toilets. The bride wore an enchanting wedding dress of ivory satin, simply garnished on tha high corsage with India muslin, crossed in Grecian folds and carried in exquisite falls of simplicity over the petticoat.

The orange-blossom garniture, commencing upon the veil in a superb coronet issuene, and continued throughout tho costume with artistic skill. Her veil of tulle, about five yards in length, completely enveloped her, falling to the edge of the petticoat in front and extending the entire length of her full court train. She wore no jewelry except an engagement ring, containing two diamonds, ancl a plain gold wedding ring, which had been placed on her finger before she descended the staircase. Mrs. Folsom wore a superb dress of violet satin, with garnature in white faille, with chrystalized violet drops in pendants everywhere.

Her flowers were La France rose.

Mrs. Manning's dress was of white satin, flounced across the front with duchess lace trimming, finished with low neck and elbow sleeves; diamond ornaments.

Mrs. Rogers, cousin of the bride, was dressed in a costume of delicato cameo pink with brocaded front-Mrs. Codman, a relative of the bride, wore a whito satin dress, en train, with black lace draperies- Mrs. Harmon woro a train dress of light orange.

Mrs. Sunderland's dress was gray satin trimmed with lace, long train, square neck and elbow sleeves. The decorations of the executive mansion tonight wero of an elaborate character and in tho laneuage of one or tho oldest em ployes, "it never presented a handsomer appearance." Other cities contributed their choice plants and flowers to lend their beauty and rragranco to the scene. Of course, the blue room, where tho ceremony was tho principal attention or the decoration, which was certainly well done. It was transformed into veritable bower or bcanty, a stately group or tropical plants extending along the entire Eouth end or tho room, concealing tho windows and south doorway, and rising to within a Tow feet of tho ceiling.

Tho hearth under tho cast mantel was a floral arrangement representing a cheerful, blazing firo Tho west mantel sustained a solid bank of roses in which none but the choicest were used, commencing with delicate pink at tho ends and growing darker and richer toward tho center, where thcro was interwoven a monogram, Over tho mail, entrance from tho corridor was a beautiful floral scroll in which tho memo Pluribus Unum" was interwoven in immortelles. Tho decorations of the private dining room whero the wedding collation was served wero also of elaborato character. Tho main tablo decoration was a full rigged masted ship displaying the word "Hymen." Tho cast room and the red and green parlors wero decorated in tho style usual at receptions and stato dinners. The cast room presented a particularly grand appearance. From tho cist room tho company proceeded, after a season of promenading and conversation, to tho family dining room or tho mansion, whero tho wedding supper was served.

After tho guests proceeded to tho dining room thero was no formal order observed. In the supper room a collation was served and tho guests sat at the small tables or slowly promenaded as they discussed tho menu and chatted over tho event of tho evening. The elegantly designed souvenirs or the satin boxes, containing dainty pieces or tho tho bridal cake and each one bearing the hand-painted monogram wero received with great admiration, whilo tho orchestra was playing ono or its happiest selections and tho guests wero gathered about tho tables; tho brido quietly slipped away to her room and changed her wedding dress ror a heavy gray silk trayeling dress. Sho then returned to the company and was soon afterward joined by tho president, who had in the meantime changed his dress suit ror a traveling costume. This was about 8.30 o'clock and the president and his brido said a hasty "good bye" to their friends and left tho houso through a privato exit from tho red room into the south ground.

A closed carriage awaited them and they entered and tho horses started off. A shower of rico was thrown on the carriage and their friends waived them a final "God speed" from tho rear porch. It was expected that tho president would try to slip away unobserved, and in order to prevent this a number of newspaper men stationed themselves near tho southwest entrance to tho grounds with carriage to follow tho president in caso he should make his exit by that gate. This was reported to the president, so ho instructed his driver to go out of tho grounds by another and almost unused route, and in that way hoaertcd tho reporters altogether. His carriage, was driven direct to the Baltimore and Ohio railroad station whero a special train was in waiting to tako the president and his brido to Deer park.

They wero escorted through tho station and into tho car provided for them without attracting attention and at 9 o'clock the train started off to its destination. The president and his bride were wholly unaccompanied on this journey. They will probably remain at Deer park about a'week which lime thev will oecunr a small I oottago which has not been opened ror the Eeasuu. The guests began to leave the Whito Houso soon after tho president's departure. The crowd of curious sight-seers remained at the mansion until preparations were made to close it for the night.

The wedding presents wero manT, but they were not accepted, nor will a list furnished. This is in deference to the wishes or the president. The groom's gift to his bride was a handsome diamond of a single string of diamonds. The presents from the cabinet officers and their wives wero mostly articles of jewelry, although there were several beautiful presents of silver-ware. Just as the wedding ceremony began a presidential salute was fired by a battery of artillery near the river and the chime of bells of tho Metropolitan M.

E. church pealed forth the Mendelssohn wedding march, and the other churches joined ia the happy salute. Th he centlemen present at the wedding were not fortunate enough to receive a salute from the bride, who confined her kiss to the ladies. Otherwise the ceremony was orthodox in form. The executive mansion will be open tomorrow and photographers have alreitdv received permission to perpet uate pictorially the elaborate decoration of the interior.

The arrangement for tb day' event were under tho control and personal management of Colonel Lamont and they worked so smoothly and satisfactorily as to cam for him universal commendation and compliment.

FORTV-NINTH CONGRESS. Senate. Washington, June 2. In the senate today, after routine busine, the Northern Pacific forfeiture bill was informally ltid aside to permit Mr. Brown to address the senate on the bankruptcy bill.

Mr. Brown said that of the GO.000.000 people in the United State not 10,000.000 desired the bill; it was desired by brokers bankers, railways, etc; it was a good bill for those but a bad bill for the remainder of the people. The Northern Pacific forfeiture bill then resumed.

House calendar. The house then went into committee or the whole on the oleomanrerine bill. Mr. Willbourne, or Texas, opposed the bill. He said it could not be found in the history of tho republic a more serious precedent than would be established by it.

Mr. O'Farrall, of Virginia, said it wa not a proposition to build up one honest industry at the expense or another honest industry, but to build up honest industry with honest industry. On motion or Mr. Beach, or New York, an amendment was adopted inserting the word "knowingly" in the clause imposing a penalty upop every person who purchases or receives for sale oleomargerine from tho manufacturer who had not paid the special tax. Mr.

Holman, of Indians, spoke in it favor. Tho object of the bill incidentally advised the repeal or the tobacco but maintained that oleomargerino was a proper subject or taxation. Mr. McKenna favored the bill and Mr. Lawler opposed it-Mr.

Bayne, or Pennsylvania, said that there was nothing in tho bill which would prevent the poor man from buying oleomargerino without tho payment of any tax if he went to tho manufacturer and purchased that which was not produced in imitation or butter. Mr. Scott, or Pennsylvania, entered bis protest against tho resolution or the trades assemblies or western Pennsylvania, presented yesterday by Messrs. Negley and Curtin. beinir resrarded as representing the sentiment or the wage workers or the state ot Pennsylvania.

Tho telegram presontea misrepresented tho wago workers or Pennsylvania. It did not speak their true sentiments and convictions-Mr. Henley sustained ths) bill. a Mr. McMillen, or Tennessee, moved to strike out tbo clauso which provides that hlf th fines and penalties imposed by this act shall go to tho informer.

Tho houso would not do itself justice if it enacted such an obnoxious piece of legislation. Tho motion was agreed to to j-j. In accordance with an arrangement made this afternoon tho committee rose and re-norled the bill to tha house, tho under standing being that a vote should bo taken tomorrow and that an opportunity should be civen to allow members to pats upon tno question of reducing tho rate of tax imposed.
