"GOOD GRAY POET". PEACEFULLY AWAY. PASSES His End Palnletg and Peaceful—What thn Autopsy Revealed—An Interesting Biographical Sketch of the Dead Bard. An Eventful and Varied Career. CAMDEN, N. J., March ii7.— Calmly and peacefully, like a child asleep, Walt Whitman passed away. He bad been weaker than uaual for some days past, but for some reason the knowledge of his condition did not become public property. At 4:80 p. m. he began to sink. A messenger was hurriedly sent for his physician, who reached the. ing man's bedside a..abort while . ward. The doctor found the in a dying condition, and so infor: those around his bedside. He asked a'; once attrncDou me attention of tha reviewers to the book which they had entirely overlooked before. Oa all sides the work, was condemned, and in Boston and other cities it was declared unfit for circulation in the public libraries because of its alleged immoral tone. But Whitman defied all his censors, and between other writings continued to make the "Leaves of Grass" his special work. In 1856 he published a second edition of the work, and four years later a third, followed between the years 18(57 and 1882 by five other editions, and in 1889 by the last and ninth, with the final authentic All of Whitman's readers agree that on this work his fame will mat.

WASHINGTON, March 32.—The senate passed the. bill to ref and to settlers in the vicinit/^Siorfeited. railroad grants the extra SI.25.fiii: acre which had been charged them I); the government because of such proximity. The vote was 2-i to 22—a party vote, axcopt--that Mr. Halo voted "no" with the Democrats. The senate then passed Mr. Gibson's Mississippi river improvement bill appropriating 815,000,000 for the building of levees, etc., 810,000,000 to ba expended by the Mississippi river commission, and $5,000,000 by the secretary of war, not more than $3,000,000 to be expended in any one year. The silver debate was opened in the house by Mr. Bland in favor of hid fre" coinage 1-sll. Mr. Taylor, of Illinois, anu WALT patient if he suffered any pain, and the whispered answer was "No." His breathing became fainter and fainter, and at exactly 6:43 p. m. he passed away. The remains of the deceased will be placed in the recently completed tomb in Harleigh, cemetery, ia the outskirts of the city of Camaden, a spot selected by Mr. Whitman when he was enjoying his usual health, and where he visited many times during the construction of the tomb. The interment will take place Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. BIOGRAPHICAL. Sketch of the Eveattul'Career of Walt Whitman. It is with regret that the world hears of the "Good Gray Poet's" death. His contemporaries were pot always kind to him. The critics "cut him up" with their pens, hut the sturdy old man never deigned a reply or a defense. His chief crimes in the eyes of his opponents were his utter lack of conventionality, his use of words not often sounded in "ears polite," and his total disregard of the laws of versifying. But Whitman calmly ignored the onslaughts made on him and insisted that he had merely inaugurated a new style. Until within a few years bis works have not been highly appreciated in. this country, though in England from the first he has been -regarded as a poetic genius. Nevertheles, his proudest boast has been his Americanism. "My tongue, every atom of my blood, formed from this soil, this air. Born here of parents born here, from parents the same, and parents the same," is his boast in one of Uis compositions. And there are few%.mericans who had a greater right to be proud of their Amei icanism, for his family on both sides counted back over nearly 300 years' residence in the New World. His father came of English stock and his mother of Dutch, her maiden name being Van Velsor. He was born a farmer's son at West Hills, L, I., on May 81,1819, and received a common school education, partly at his birthplace and partly in Brooklyn. Subsequently he entered a job office in /the later city and learned the trade, of printer, to which he clung with more or less regularity for some years. ' Incidentally, however, he interspersed bis typesetting with school teaching and literary work. He edited *eyeral Brooklyn papers for short periods, among others The Freeman and Esyzle. ~i,e»vei of ifrftM." Early in 1859 he issued the first edition of "Leaves of Grass." Tfoecontente of this singular book were neither verse nor prpse, but a serios of ejaculations and aphorisms preseat'ng m«ny original ideas, *nd appealing to t;*e common feelings of mind in favor of the natural enjoyment of Ufs, the exercise of the active powers of mind and body and the fr^nfc reception of wholesome influences. At first the critics d|d not notice the work, either to pra.ise <» condemn, They ignored it entirely. In a few however, a copy fell into th« IRaJph waste .Swum, P» wrote «let- ig made d^TOjto™"'" -v »--~ — ** i»»w*v llftOBtl jWifsrat Messrs, '"'. "Weadock, rlpes, O'L H Ci and Hopkins, ,'?

After so-..:e committee reports the debate on the silver bill was resumed and continued throughout the day. Thursday. WASHINGTON, March 34.—The house spent the day up to 5 o'clock iu debating the Bland silver bill. At that hour the speaker closed the debate according to agreement, and Mr. Bland moved the previous question. Mr. Burrows immediately moved to lay on the table. There was an exciting time, and when the vote on the motion to table was counted it was found there were 148 to 147 in favor. Mr. Crisp, before the vote was announced, said he desired to be recorded as voting no. This made a tie, and the motion to table was consequently lost. A motion to reconsider finally prevailed, when the anti- silver men adapted filibustering tactics. The greatest confusion reigned until 12:30 a. m., when the house adjourned. The silver bill then took its place as a special order and goes on the calendar. The senate was only in session a short time before an executive session on the Behring sea question was ordered. Friday. WASHINGTON, March 35.—Senate only in session half an hour before an executive session on Behring sea matters was ordered. The house, wearied from its labors on the silver bill since Tuesday last, devoted three hours to the consideration of bills on the private calendar, and not securing a quorum, adjourned at 3:30. Mr. Bland introduced a resolution to vote on the silver bill on Monday. Referred to committee on rules. Saturday. WASHINGTON, March S6.—The house proceeded, under a special order, to the consideration of the pension bills reported favorably from committee of the whole at the late Friday night session. Seventeen private pension bills were passed, and at 3 o'clock business was suspended and the colleagues of the late F. B. Spitiola, of New York, proceeded to pay tributes ( to his memory. After eulogies by Messrs. Cochran and Curtis, Cummings, Wheeler, Geissenhainer,Belden, Hooker and Cooper, the house, as a further mark of respect to the memory of the deceased, adjourned. The senate was not in session. AXouday. WASHINGTON, March 38.—Senator Morgan offered a resolution which was agreed to calling on the president for correspondence with the Argentine Republic on the subject of reciprocity; and 'for information as to articles exported therefrom to the United States on which the Unitec States requires a reduction of the custom duties imposed by the Argentine Republic, so as to maie reciprocity fair am equal, Rouse bill to amend the act o: 1888, autherking the construction of bridge across the Mississippi river at Burlington, la,, WAS passed.
