Grant's Birth—Notable- Observance at Galena, III. BEMEMBEBED HIS OBASD CABKKB. OALEXA, 111, April 27.—This town resounded with the echo of that artillery which was music to the ears of Ulysses S. Grant, and in memory and imagination |the people fought again the battles of their hero. It was tho anniversary of his birthday, and the people did honor to his name. Fine oratory thundered the praises of the soldier from the pulpit, brass bands crashed music in his honor, the stars and stripes waved in the sky, children's Toices united to sing his glory. Galena put on its gayest apparel and glorified the memory of its great soldier with every accent and expression of praise that was possible. Tho celebration was in all respects a notable success, and its yearly recurrence will make it, in time to come, one of tho most signal days ot tho few that are snatched from business in America and gi»en over to patriotism. As Grant's home,' Galena •hould properly be tho first to Inaugurate an annual celebration of the hero's natal day. The Grant celebration has now become a fixture. Tli» Exercises. The exercises began early in the afternoon. A parade was formed and the column moved to Turner hall, headed by the Galenti Juvenile band costumed "in bright zouave uniforms. The line wns formed by Company M, Galena, 1. N. G., tho local and visiting posts of the Grand Army of the Republic, odd fellows and other social organizations. The march was brought up by carriages containing the committees and prominent guests. Turner boll, although a large room, •was by far too small to accommodate the crowds that pressed Into it, and the overflow was compelled to be content with such a celebration as it could make for itself In the parks mnd in the streets. Rev. E. C. .Arnold, of the First Methodist church, 'opened the proceed'ng-s with prayer. lAft«ra short seleotionjby the band, .Maj. jBerbJun introduced Hon. Lutber Laflln Smis, the well-known lawyer of Chi- oago, who wa» the orator of the day. |llr. Hill* delivered » most eloquent n « ohftrMt«r oi Gen. Grant and his services to his country, and the great audience at the close fairly thundered forth Its approbation of his sentiments. The Imperial quartette, of Chicago, sang tho national anthem, the audience joining in the chorus. The chaplain thon pronounced the benediction. Celebration In Grant Park. While these exercises were going on in Turner hall another equally interesting programme was.being carried out in Grant park. Several hundred school children of the city marched out to the park and, gathered about the foot of the Grant monument there, rendered a pretty programme of choral songs and recitations. A profusion of flowers were left at ihe base of the monument. Observances F.lsowhere.
