St. Petersburg, Xov. 13.
Tho preparations for tho reception of
the body of Alexander lit in this city,
today, were hardly equal to those in
Moscow, and in consequence of a thaw,
followed by fog and snow fall, the pro
cession had to march through deep
slush and mud. The heralds yesterday
announced that the body would arrive
at 10 o'clock this morning. The hotels
were crowded to their full capacity
with visitors from nil parts of Russia
and the continent, and windows nlong
the route of the procession had been
readily rented days ago nt 100 roubles.
Preceding the ceremony of removing
the body from the Xlcholns station to
the fortress three guns were tired. Af
ter the third gun the church bells were
tolled and throughout the day minute
guns were fired. When the funeral
train arrived at the Nicholas station ut
fl.55 a. in., the station was crowded with
the nobility of Russia and represeta
tives from every other European coun
try. The hearse stood ready to receive
the remains of the dead emperor ami
nround It was ranged the guurd of hon
or, ull representatives of the navy. Jn
addition to these there were a largo
number of clergymen, choristers and
others uwaiting the arrlvul of tho train,
and beyond the limits prescribed by the
police and military was an immense
crowd of people.
.Vn Impressive Spectacle.
Amid the snlemn music of the band,
and the chanting of priests nnd singers,
the long funeral train slowly stole into
the station, until the mortuary car was
opposite the steps leading to the hearse,
when It came to a full stop. With
candles and Incense the priests stood In
a group lining the steps, the metropoli
tan of St. Petersburg and tho higher
clergy at the top, and the roll of the
drums of the grenadiers mingled with
their chanting, showing the hurmonv
ot til tributes of the church and nrmv
to tneir lormer head. A boy choir began
a chorus, in which the men Joined, and
the volume of vocal music swelled high
upon the frosty ulr. The procession
moved at 10.30 o'clock. The coltin was
covered with u goldi.Mi pall lined with
heavy ermine. .
The prince of Wales walked with the
Czar Nicholas, each wearing a uniform
similar to the one he- wore in Moscow,
only more eluborate. This characteri
zation is true of the whole procession.
It was conducted upon the same plan
as that in Moscow, only more elaborate
ly. The flJor of the cathedral of St.
Isaac's was covered with black cloth.
