Parnall'a Remains Interred In th« Cemetery at Glastievan. DUBLIN, Oct. 12.—The remains of Charles Stewart Parnell reached Dublin at 7:30 a. m., and were taken at once to the city hall, where they laid in state from 10 o'clock until ». A steady flow of people passed through the building, and it is estimated that 40,000 viewed the remains. Nearly all were in deepest mourning. At 2:45 p. m. the funeral cortege started for the grave in Glasnevin cemetery. As the coffin passed it was almost hidden by flowers. Every head in the vast assemblage was uncovered. When the procession started the rain ceased and the sun came out. The scene was most impressive. All windows and house tops were packed. The i«.-ocession wended its way by a circuitous route to the cemetery, the circuit making it scarcely possible to reach the cemetery before 6 o'clock, Perfect Order Prevailed although the vast line of mourners surpassed in numbers any spectacle ever seen in Dublin. When the first part of the procession reached the cemetery gate, at 5 o'clock it was found impossible to penetrate the dense masses assembled there and after a struggle the police had to abandon the effort to make a way through the crowd. It was then decided to close the lower gate. This was ef fectecl amid great disorder jxist as thi hearse reached the spot. The hearse was then escorted to the upper gate. The coffin was removed and placed on a platform especially constructed in such a way that tha procession could file around it and have a view of the bier, At 7 o'clock, when dusk was fast falling on the scene, tho procession was still filing around the bier, so orders were given to remove the coffin to the side of the grave. The crush on all sides was terrible and the noise of shrieking women and of children squeezed in the throng and the shouts of men struggling amid the crush, made inaudible the voices of the clergy reciting the ritual of the church of England. When the crowd THE ATLANTIC STOEM, GREAT DAMAGE STILL BEING DONE ON THE LONG ISLAND COAST.

It was 7 o'clock when the mourners started to return to the city. RAIN FELL IN TORRENTS. E1S NEW YORK, Oct. 14.—The fearful storm which raged in this vicinity sinco Sunday has wrought immense damage along the Long Island coast. At Bock- away waves nearly thirty feet high «ro lashing the beach, plowing far into the sand and washing buildings and boats out to sea'. Many pleasure crafts have been missing sinco Sunday, and it is feared they have been lost with' all on board. George White, Alfred Kane, Mark Thursby and Alden Little, of New York.hired two boats Sunday for a day's fishing. They have not since been seen, but one of the boats has been picked up, and there is hardly a dotibt but that all four have been drowned. Sixteen Probably Drowned. At Hollands station, on Eockaway beach, seven boats were let out on Sunday. They carried sixteen men. None of them hav« since been seen and it is thoxight the storm carried them out to sea. "As the water outside the inlet raged mountains high, so that a small boat could scarcely live a minute in it, the sixteen men were prooably drowned. A two masted schooner sailed by Jans Moore and having a crew of three men, put out from Canarsie, Sunday afternoon. She was loaded with coal and bound for Baltimore. She was caught in the storm and the' three sailors were swept off the deck while trying to make sail. Moore clung to a mast and was saved, but only after drifting around for over twenty-four hours and then at the loss of Jxilius Quay, a life saver, who went out to the vessel in a breeches buoy and was drowned. Moore was finally rescued. He is believed to be insane from his awful experience as he talks in an incoherent way and constantly begs to be taken back to the boat. CONSECRATED^ A BISHOP.

Bishop Brooks will at once give up his labors in Trinity parish and devote himself exclusively to tho diocese Dr. Phillips Brooks is famous as a preacher and one of the few whose sermons have made acceptable books. He stands for certain ideas in religion which are as much matters of concern to other denominations as to that which has the honor of his immediate services. He is known for a broad and solid liberality, for the possession of such a spirit as should be housed in so great and powerful a frame. In personal appearance a genial giant, with something of boyishopen-heartednessin his smooth, round face, he has exemplified in his ca reer the good that can spring out ot strength and sympathy.
