THOSE who are trying to make it appear that Columbus was after all only a sort ol pirate on a large scale should read up enough to learn that all sailors of his time were somewhat given to that sort of thing.

It may be conceded at once that he was not if such a course will put the uneasy at ease.

The Oration of the Occasion an Eloquent Euloey by Cbanner M, J>-EW YOKE, April 27.—The first stone of the great mausoleum which is to fierpetuate the memory of Gen. Ulysses Grant was laid in Riverside park at o'clock this afternoon. President Sarrison, in the presence of his Cabinet »nd thousands of citizens, laid the granite block upon which is to be builded a tomb worthy of the nation'a hero. The ceremonies«\vere impressive and the weather favored them. Long before the hour set for tbe ceremonial, the park presented an animated appearance. As early as 10 o'clock, the little knoll upon which tbe enduring monument will stanc was surrounded by thousands of civi lians. Hour after hour, the grea throng was augmented. It -was : peaceful, orderly, decorous gathering The best people of the metropolis were centered around the site of the manso- leum that is'to \>* The president left tbe Ffth avenue hote at 12:45 and was accompanied by troop J cavalry, Capt. C. A. Rowe, commanding, With the president were General Horace Porter and Lieutenant Parker. In othe: carriages were Yice r President Morton an: F. D. Laphin, Secretary Eikins and General BuHerfield, Post Master General Wan arnaker and John H. Stairn, Secretar Noble and H. W. Cannon. Secretary Rusk Cornelius Bliss, Chauncey M. Depew an others. The party arrived at 2:15. Afte Hail to the Chief, by the band, and an in vocation by Rev. John Hall, Gov. Horac Porter, president of the Grant Monu-uen association, spoke, saying: We gather here to lay the corner ston of a temple of the dead, to celebrate an event which will be forever memorable history. Although the fuad required fo the completion of the monumental torn is large, it is decided to lay the come stone today ia tbe confident belief that th patriotic work once begun, will never b allowed to stop till completed, have great, satisfaction in announc ing that the total subscription up last night amount to 8202,800. When th structure shall have reached completio the"dome will point out the path of loyalt to unborn, children, the hallowed memo ries which cluster around it will remin us of heroic aid to the republic, the blenc in^ of chaste lines and massive propor tions will be typical of the hero who &lee beneath the granite, and will recall t! childlike simplicit' which mingled wit the majestic grandeur of his nature. the Iron the grandeur of the iem- caieer and the deed* of tJlyeie* S. i)ri Hall pronounced UM superb erected tenderness mom, with over life would pee . rom display, and he desired to escape it after death! To lie in the church yard where slept hi* father and mother would have been more in accord with his mind. Jat he appreciated that his countrymen lad a claim upon his memory and the les«ns of bis life and fame, lie knew that where he was buried, there they build a shrine for the study and inspiration of coming generation*. He selected New York because it was he metropolis of the continent and the capital of the country, bui he mule one condition. No spot should be chosen which did not permit his wife to be at his aide at the resurrection. She had been the love of his youth, the companion and confidant of his maturer years She had made the humble cottage at Gaiena, the camp, the white house, and the stately city residence, all equally lis home. He would have no monument, aowever erand, which separated him from ler during the nnumbered years of the hereafter. At Arlington, he would have lain among the soldieis who bad followed and revered their great commander, bul at Riverside he will await the last triumph ith the partnerof his life and the mother of his children. Ihe memory of our heroe?, our patriots and our men of genius is oneof the strongest of the bonds which hold together our union and perpe uate our power. But the altars upon which the fires of patriotisn are evw burning are north, south, eas and west. Washington is at Mount Ver non, Lincoln at Springfield, Grant a New York, Sherman at St. Louis, and Jackson at the Hermitage. Jefferson is at Monticello, and Adams at Quincy. Irving rests among the scenes irnrnortalize< by his pen at Sleepy Hollow, and Long fellow amidst the inspirations of his mOse at Cambridge. E?i-ry stats cherishes the remains of its citizens, whose illustrious achievement? are the glory of the country and the pride of their commonwealth, whose works and lives are ever living les•sons of love and devotion to the flag and constitu'ion of the United States. New York in accepting this bequest of General Grant has assumed a sacred trust. The whole country are enlisted in the army of reverence and sorrow, but he appointed New York the guard of honor. Lst the monument wbicu will rise upon thii corner stone be worthy of the magnitude of the metropolis and the grandeur of the subject. A phenomenon of our times, and one of the chief dangers to 'aw and order, is the growth of the fclml of despair. The concentrated contemplation of accumulated wealth, and the hopelessness of acquiring it, paralyzes industrial energies and true ambitions, and plants the seeds of toeialitm and anarchy.. But Lincoln, from tie poverty of the Kentucky c. bin, and Grant from " the narrow gifts of a log house in the Ohio wilderness, became the central figures and the representative heroes of our age. They are types of the glory of American citizenship. diction, and the-guns of the Mointono- mah fired the national salute. School x>ys to the number of 1,500 marched b» he tomb and scattered Bowers aronnd it Mrs. Grant and one of her grand chit dren, with a party of friends, occupied a position of honor on the grand gland.

The avenues oi pref erraent and opportunity must be open alike to all. These great Americans ilius trate the processes by which masterful men forge to the frost, and the less capable cr industrious find their places in the ranks in every village and hamlet in the lard. The schools cannot create heroes They train and discipline faculties which only opportunity can reveal whether they are the gifts of a great commander. The civil war demonstrated that our country was singularly rich in excellenl brigade, division and corps commanders. It developed three or four officers capable of ^initiating and conducting military operations with immense forces and on a large field, but only one general. The intellect which tired "of the routine of a soldier's life in times of peace, which could not oe roused to the successful management of a farm or a surveyor's office, wnich indifferently comprehended th« duties of a clerk or junior in a merchant's firm, was clarified by grave perils and expanded under greater responsibilities. Grant at forty was an unknown and unimportant citizen in a western town, and at forty-two he was the hope of the army, and the hero of popular imagination. Grant was the most independent of generals, and the re suit placed him in the front rank of greal captains of the world. He rarely held councils of war, and never adopted their conclusions. He sometimes acted directly How a Soldier Feel* When He Kills an Bnemy In Battle. They do not call it murder when men meet to slaughter each other in batiie They simply report so many dead, wound- en and missing.

We have thrown down the rail fence, gathered logs and brush and sod and form d a breastwork. It is only a slight one but enough to shelter us while lying down.

Under the smoke we can see the work of the shell?, but they cannot halt that mass of men. The grape and canister does awful execution, but there should be a dozen guns instead of sis. They are going to charge on us. The guns cannot prevent that. Orders run along the line, and we are waiting till every bullet, no matter if fired by a sildier with his eyes shut, must hit a toe. I select my man while he is yet'beypnd range. 1 have eyes for no other. He is a tall soldierly fellow weiring the stripes of a sergeant. As he comes nearer I imagine ;hat he is looking ss fixedly at me as 1 am at him. I admire his coolness. He looks neither to the right nor to the left. The man on his right is hit and goes ddwn, out he does not falter. I am going to kill that man!

We are calmly waiting until our volley shall prove a veritable flauie of death. NJW they close up their gaps and we caa hear the shouts of their officers as they ; make ready to charge. My man is still opposite me. He still seems to be looking I at me and no one else. I know the word is coming in a few seconds more aud I aim at his chest. I could almost ba sore of hitting hi ui with a stone when we get the • word to fire. There is a billow of flame — a billow of smoke — a fierce crash, [ and 4,000 bullets are fired into that compact mass of advancing men. The smoke drifts slowly away — men I cheer and yell — we can see the meadow beyond heaped with dead and dyins men. We advance our line. As we go forward I look for my victim. He is lying on hb back, tyes-half shut and fingers clutching at the grass. He gasps, draws up his legs and straightens them out again and is ! dead as I pass on. I have killed my man!

He then ascended the base and spoke as follows: My assignment connected with these - j i renner, against the assemblage.
