GETTYSBURG, _ July .I:—The town is
thronged, and many , were obliged to stay
in the streets all night. Many strangers
artito-day visiting th e battle field. The
procession marched . 'to -the cemetery' at
ten o'clock under military escort.
The proceedings at the m_
around which were 'stationed „ the mili
tary, commenced by +be singing of a
hymn by the Baltimore Arlon Society.
Bev. Mi. Beecher then made the Open--.
ing prayer, -- invoking "divine protection
for the future of this, and as it bad been
accorded to it in the days of trial; pray-
big' that God would remember those
whose homes werb poorer because of the
lose • of: - those who are entombed on the
field cif 'battle, and beseeching divine
' guidance for the rulers;of the country
thatpeacenniy ever blesathe whole land.
The hyniq;',. 'Tis Rolf:Ground," writ
ten by B. O. French, of Washington, for
.the dedidellon of the Cemetery in 1883,
was sung by the choir:
Yresident Wills then announced that
Gen. Meade would address the'audience
preparatory to unveiling thernonument,
+which would take place duringThelring
Of a salute of one gun' for each State hr._
ing dead buried within its limits.`' 1
Gen. Meade then took his position OR
the plattirrn, and was: received .with
"cheers. When the cheering had Stub
aided, Gen. Meade said: i
My Fellow-Oittzens, .Ladie s and Gentle-
Igen: Six years. ego ,i - good upon this

happy places around me, are widely dif
ferent from the turetiltous roar of: ar
and the terrible scenes enacted atthat
Time. Four years ago I stood here, by
invitation of the -same honored- gentle
men WhoAnsve brought me here at this
time, and laid the corner-stone of this
monument which we ere brought to
gether to-clay, to dedicate. And now
for the third time I'appearbefore you, at

\ the memory of the brave men who fell
here, by ,deKlicsting this-monument to

well as my right hand olficer—brave
Vincent and. Zook and Weed, and others.
~, f ar more in number than I have time or
words to mention—my feelingsare those
of mingled sadness and joy; sadness, my
friends, to think there ever was an ooili
sion when suchmen should be arrayed
in battle, as -they were bere; that we
should ever have been called'upon, as.
we were called Alp= this field, to defend/
the Sig of our country and Government,

which we here wrought in obedience to

widows and orphans left throughout the
land by that dreadful estruggle.l: Such
thoughts naturally come on us. , At the
"'setae time I am,..filled With gratitude and
joy, gratitude td the ;Almighty who di

as an &lull:31o! infitrument, with those
then around me titan this tield, to obtain
that decisive *tory which turned the

At the conr eion of tb remarks-a
passage was el oared,' 'in front of the at
leading to the base- of this m nu
ment, and assisted by S6cretary ofWar
Rawlins; the veil that shielded the rout
of the monument was/dropped, an the
first full view of all its beauties was met
with enthusiastic , applause from', the
throngs that were looking on.
At this interesting moment, mingled
With the music of the band and the
firbig of a salute, President Wills an
nounced that Hon. O. P. Morton, Senator
from Indiana, would pronouncethe
Senator Morton then addressed 1 the
audience. He recounted eloquently
'the - battle of Gettysburg, saying it r -
suliedin destraYing the prestige of tne
rebel army, never to be recovered. By
:one victories at Gettysburg . and Vicki!,
burg, the rebellion lost its prestige in 'Eu
rope and all hopes of foreign intervention.
At the foot of this monument sleep he
roes of l battle. Iri far .off homes, among
*the hills of New England, on the shores
of the lakes, and in the.valleys and plains
of the.west, the,wider, the orphan and
the aged parent are weeping for these be
loved dead. . Many 01 the tombs are
marked "unknown," but they will all be
recognized on the morning of the resur
rection. Doubtless the recording angel
bas' preserved the - record; and viien the
books are open on the last day their
names will be found in letters of living
light on the immoi tul page of hordes who
died that their country might live. He
paid if grateful, ' compliment to the
courage;of the rebel-dead. - .
• The rebellion was caused 'by the false
belief that chivalry and • glory were the
inheritance only of slaveholders. But
now rebellion, the offspring of slavery,
bath murdered its unnatural parent, and
and a perfect reign of liberty is at hand,
The principles of liberty will be borne.
through all ages, %and.the oraspact for
liberty throughout the world was never'"
so bright as to-day. He then reviewed
the advance of liberty ;Onto 1776 in the
old world. ': 1
Of Cuba he said she is making bold, vig
brims, ,and as we trust, success:ld efforts
tce`throw off the Spanish yoke and mob- '
bah her independence. Though we cannot
rightfully intervene between Spain and
her colony, which she.has so long O.
pressed and impoverished, our sympa
thies are with the Cubans,' and we cannot
regret any'aid they may I receive which
does not involve a breach 'of the interna
tional duty of our Governu y Erlat.
1 After . referring to - the progressive.
strides liberty is making, ' even in Eng
land, he recounted the numerous dilli/
,culties encountered in putting down the
1 rebellion; but contended , that the ,juslice
' of our cause enabled the ;final final victory to
be won. N ' 1
He concluded as follows: We seek not
to commemorate a triuMph over ; our •
misguided Countrymen.; It islhe cause
we celebrate. Our triumphils their's,
and their children's children unto the.
latest generation. The, greet - disturbing
eleinent has been removed; vielmasi pci
litical heresies have ,botin extinguished; ,
the trial by .wager JaChattle has been
decided in f.avor of liberty and union,
and'all‘will , submit.< The, people of the
sNentli,*id the South havemet each other
face to fade on ManyLa field, have trier
each ether's courage,tinve found that they
are much alike in most things, have
increased their mutual respect, and are
now preparing .to live together more l i
fraternally than before. The Southern
States lire rapidly recovering from the
prostration of war,- and' • with their
lelivniance from the incubus of slavery,
with free labor, with free 6chools, with
emigration from the North and from
Eitrope, will soon attain a prosperity and
/ power of • which they scarcely dreamed
in former days. Their advancing pros
perity is solid, just and enduring. We
•rejeice in it; all participate in it. Tne
bonds of Union are Made indissoluble
by the community, Of political , princi
ples, by the complete Identityl, of do.
mestle and commercial interests and by
a uniform system of labor, of education
and of habits of thought- And action.
Henceforth disunion is impossible.
