About tho year 18C7 Daniel F. Se;

this Bcckwith S. Brockway died. Tho
death proof was made out and rll tho
preparations made for collection of tho
insurance money by 1). 1 Hovbert,
Tho companies interested objected to
paying Seybert on tho ground that ho
had no insiirablo interest in tho case.
Seybert brought suit against tho iEtna
company in 1872 in tho courts of Luz
orno county. Tho matter was submit

whoso decision was adverse to Sev,
bert's claim on tho gronud that ho had
no insurablo intereht in tho lifo of
Brookway. Seybort rested until 1882,
when ho brought suit against tho Now

A writer in tho Now York Sun tells
this story : A few months after the
termination of Iho sipgo of Paris in
1871, during which I had acted as spo-
cial correspondent for an English news
paper, i was staying lor a short timo
nt tho Grand Hotel in that city. While
I was sipping coffee and smoking a ci
gar an American friend, Colonel W.,
entered and introduced me to n gentle
man who accompanied him. Wo sat
down at tho littlo marblo tablo of tho
cafo for n chat. Tlio conversation soon
becamo interesting, for all tbreo were
brimful of military anecdotes and re
miniscences of tho lato war in France
as well as of tho war in America.
Colonel W.'s friend, whoso namo has
escaped my memory, was prevailed up
on to relate tho following story, which
is given as thoroughly reliable:
"Although Iho Colonel hero and I
were firm friends from tho days of our
youth, wo found ourselves, liko many
others, when tho war of secession
broko out, ranged upon opposito sides.
Wo were, however, spared tho distress
of being thrown into immediato per
sonal contact during that dreadful pe
riod. I was always a headstrong, im
petuous sort of fellow, and n red-hot
partisan of the Confederate cause.
Toward tho latter part of tho war 1
had workod up my intompcrato zeal to
tho point of believing that nothing
could savo tho Confederacy from do
struction except some heroic deed of
self-sacrifice. Tho continued series of
defeats which wo had recently sustain
ed at tho hands of General Grant had
served to inspire in my mind an intense
rago which ultimately degenerated into
a bitter personal haired against the
"At this particular period wo wcro
noaring what proved to bo tho termi
nation of tho terrific struggle, for Gen
eral Lee, in whoso army I was an offi
cer, was expeoting to como into .actual
collision with General Grant's main
nrmy from day to day. Of courso you
havo read and heard all about tho final
surrender of tlio Confederate forces.
As soon as information reached mo
that our sacred cause was ruined my
indignation rendered mo ftiriou, but I
breathed not a word of tho ignoble
resolution which I had suddenly form
ed, namely, that Gencrf.l Grant should
not survivo his triumph. Briefly, I so
contrived as to get mixed up among
tho group of staff officers surrounding
General Leo when Grant rodo down
unostentatiously to receive Iho formal
surrender of our chieftain. I had pre
viously, however, fortified myself for
tho critical moment with two stiff
glasses of whisky. Then I set myself
to watching closely for an oppoitunity
of getting a shot at him with my re
volver. "When Leo advanced with melan
choly but courtoons dign'uy and ten
dered his sword to tho conqueror I
could havo lodged a bullet in Grant's
heart with dead curtainty, but somo
mysterious interposition of Providonoo
stayed my murderous hand for tho mo
ment. Goncral Grant took tho proffer
ed sword with both hands, examined it,
and, with a winning Binile, gracefully
handed it back to its owner, saying:
'This boautiful weapon could not bo

Therefore, Goncral Lee, I havo

A Dead Issue.
When tho pcoplo of tho United
States buticd Gen. Grant they laid bo
sido him in tho gravo forever the laht
excuse for sectional agitation. Al
most with his dying breath the com
mander of the Union armies expressed
his thankfulness that ho had bcon spar

'happy harmony" that had been estab
lished between tho North and the
Soutb, and his words to tlio ex-Con-fedorato
Gen. Buckner, from whom ho
wrested Fort Douelson during tho war,
will livo in history. "Wo may now,"
wroto Gen. Grant, "well look forward
to n perpetual poacc at homo and a
national strength that will screen us
ngaiuet any foreign complication." At
tho tomb Saturday four of tho most
distinguished surviving generals of tho
war Sherman and Sheridan, who had
fought for tho Union, and Buckner and
Johnson, who had fought for the Con
federacy stood side by side. And as
tho iron doors closed on tho mortal re

Will it bo possible for partisan fanli
cism or political necessity to again re

tho two sections of tho Union t Will
it bo in tho power of tho politicians to
persuade tho people to pay no heod to
falsify his predictions of "happy har

mity only a few years ago ?
Let us hope not I When partisan
orators and organs chargo tho South
with heading nuw rebellions ; with a
determination to defy iho Constitution
and violato tho rights of citizens ; with
being still "unreconstructed rebels"
and with a desire to bo again "in tho
saddle," let us hone that the people
will have tho good sense to remember
tho words ot peace and lraternity trac

attempt to tear open his gravo and de

What the Funeral Cost.

All that has been published concern
ing tho cost of Goncral Grant's funer
nl is pure guess-work. Things have
not yet taken such uliapo that it could
bo otherwise. Mr. Merritt, tho under
taker, said that ho could not tell wheth
er his bill would bo twenty thousand
dollars or twenty thousand cents. Ho
did not know yet what tho oxpenso of
numbers of details had been to him
and until ho knew this it was impossi
ble to iiinxe oven nn approximate esti
malo ot what his charges would be.
Iho first order camo to him in a tele
gram from Colonel Frod Grant, tho
day the General died. This covered
the canopy, the cotlin, tho embalming
ami an tuat was uono nt Alt. McUrceror.
Iho second order camo from tho War
Department and covered the funeral
oar, livo hundred carnages and the
work hero in tho city. So far as he
knew now ho should render ono bill

What tho doctors bills are is cuuallv
as much in doubt. Dr. Douglas up to
tho timo of tho General's death had re
ceiyed from the family only $1,000.
This was iu tho form of a check mado
out by tho General himsolf on receiv
ing an installment of his retired pay.
The family havo as yet received notli
iug from tho General's book and prob.
nbly will receivo from it much less than
has bocn asserted.
They get soventy cents on tho vol-!
limo and up to the lime of tho Ouner
nl's death llielr share from Iho subscrip
tions now in amounted to about $10,
000. Thoy havo received no advances
from Iho publishers. Colonel Grant is
without resources, but will havo a val
uablo property when ho has completed
tho biography ol his lather, upon
which ho will nt mien set to woik.
Tho disposition of some of tho most
valuable mcmunlocs of thu liineral has
already been decided upon. Tho largo

I was struck by a remark mado to
mo by Dr. Newman. IIo said to me,
in speaking of the family and the mon
ey they might havo to livo on: "Tlioro
arc eight families, yen her, to bo sup
ported." Now, isn't that a littlo bit
exaggerated ? Tho widow should bo
placed, beyond question, far up along
the line of pecuniary ease. Well leva
sco 'about that, I am told by Mr. Jones
mat tno sl'.ju,uuii fund is ns much a
8250,000 fund to day as it over was.
That will give this good lady 815,000
a year. Congress will unquestionably
pension her, as It has all tho widows of
all other presidents, and givo her 5,
000 a year. Tho publishers of Gen.
Grant's momoirs havo already ordors
for nearly three hundred thonsand cop
ies, on which Mrs. Grant is to receive
7a ci'nls each, and tho largo probabili
ties aro certainly tho expectations are
that a million copies will be sold, on
each of which she is to receivo 75
cents. In other words tho good lady
will bo rich boyond the dream of pos
If we aro to assume that tho young
men aro incapable of earning their
own living, there is quito sufficient in
tlio annual incorao to support them all.
But Fred Grant has married tho
daughter of a very rich man, manv
times a millionaire, indeed, and is in
tho enjoyment of a handsome incomo
from that source, and in this country,
where Gon. Grant was born a humble
Jad, and worked himself by clean-cut
industry, perseverance, energy and
loyal service, to such a point of" public
favor as to bo mado twice President of
tho United States, and when ho dies to
bo deemed worthy of a national monu
ment, it seems odd and strange, evon
for Dr. Newman, to class among tho
eight families to be supported the boys
who are men, old enough long sinco
to go into business, to havo lost a for
tone in a financial crash which havo
no precedent and which thus far, for
tunatoly, has had no successor.
