Gen. Shonnan bo a-i by sayins :
According to our family Bible I wan

onsiquently I am in my C4th year
f life , and If I survive another year ,
111 pass from ac'.lvo command ot the
rmy of the United States to a life of
ompnrativu ease and retirement. The
w for compulsory retirement of all

iy judgment wise and proper. I did
ot ask for or wish exception in my
wn cise , and I declare that I then as
ow approved the measure nnd nskad

'ons by reason of its effect on mo
think I am duly grateful

o congress that oultihlo and liberal
irovisioi a hts boon made for mo and
hooo dependent upon me , to enable
i to live out our nppolnttd dttya in
lompar.V.ivo ease "
Ho then reviewed briefly the pro
rea of the world in the orta of civil-
zitlon during the past half u century ,
oferred to the stirring ovonta which
id taken place in tliia country within
Iiat period aud ojpecially to thn wnra
i which the people ot the United
states has been engaged and said that
von now , after a very ahoit lapse of
ime , it could bo aeon that these wats
iad accomplished valuablcrosnlts which
: onld not have Seen reachtd in any
ther way. As an illustration cf thlj
10 asserted that the American war
which extended our a system of gnv <
Tninont from the Atlantic to the Pa
iific , converting lands which had re <
malned for centuries in possession ol
wild beasts and wilder savages , into
prosperous ststca and torr torica in n
hort period of years. After pointing
mt the fact that the acquisition of
Califuiiila wan blio one of the resulta
of this war , General Sherman review-
id briefly the riao and development of
hat great otato and the open-
ng of railroad communication ncrora
the plains. "In those mighty ou'or
prises , " ho said , "the noldier went
hand in hand with the civilian. " Rd-
erring to the late civil war , Gen
Sherman said : " 1 need not apeak to
yon of the civil war. Ito history is
written , and all who now hear mo re
member its details. I will venture to
aay , however , in this connection that
friend and foe alike now Bharo its
glories and fruits. No part of the
union has experienced a larger meas
ure of profit than the section over
which wo seemingly triumph. I be
llevo that nine out cf ton
toldicrs of the aouth would
rather be members of our present
glorious Union , at peace with all the
world , than citizens c f the Southern
Confederacy , with slavery the corner
stone , and at constant war with their
neighbors. I have not the least de
sire , hero or elsewhere , to boast < f
my share in that war , but I do feel a
aeuso of pride and satlefactlon that
wo aa a people mot the issuea of that
day like bravo men and carried our
ship through breakers which for u
time appeared to bo A ihlpwrock. "
"Peace and good order now reign
snpremaand I can lay aside the armor
with which I hav been clothed with
honor and safety. Another will take
up where I leave i IT and our arm ;
wi'l ' move on ita glorious career to ul

In conclusion tbo general said ;
"The occasion is not suitable for mete
to eay even this much , but though
my military career is in its penulti
mate , I cannot help pleading to my
countrymen at every opportunity tc
cherish all that Is manly and noble in
thn mi itary profoition , bfciusj peace
is enervating and no man is wist
enough to foretell when soldijn maj

nauoial con ; HI about himself , and ob-
almd from the principal tnoaiber of
is bnsinoia family , G P. Morisinl ,
omo fiots udditlmul to thoio gonur-
lly known about him.
Jay Gould was born in Itoxbury ,
Daluvan couutv , in a rndn part of
iVeatarn Now York , May 27 , 1837
o ho IB not yet forty six Indeed , his
oal black board and hair , whioh ,
hough thin , h scarcely touched with
ray , indicate a nun below middle life.
iy Gould WUB lucky at the very start
in bolrg barn poor. Few Amorl
cans are rich at f jrty unless they hid
u inheritance of poverty. They who
iavo an easy boyhood and find them-
lolvcs at twenty with a few thousand
n hund , which they try to increase ,
ire the onus who are really "born tea
a hard lot " Jay waa not thffhandt-
sapped. His father , John B. Gjuld ,
wan a poor farmer , and could scarcely
} arn nnough to support his largo faml-
y in the simplcat slylo. The boy was
ho youngest , and when at the ago of
en or twelve his great thirst for
knowledge developed , hir elder sisters ,
. ouug ladies of considerable culture ,
became his teachers. I couldn't induce -
duce Mr. Gould to toll mo much about
his period of his lifo or , In fact , at.j
other. ' 'I have nothing to say"he
protested ; "why should I talk about
myself ? It doesn't seem to mt at all
proper or necessary. I am talked
about now ten tiraos as much as I wanl
to ba or ought to bo. I prefer to re
main a otriotly private citizen. "
"Yon cannot bo that , " I took tha
iborty of suggesting , "unless yon gc
out of Wall ntr < ! ot , out cf speculation ,
and out of business and put youi
money Into bonds and lire on the in
terest of it. At preaunt , the public
have a right to feel an interest in you. '
' "Vury well , then , " no reluctant ! )
conceded , "my boyhood in Iloxburj
wai about the iitne us that of othei
boys roundabout. I worked around
the farm , planting and hoe > ng , going
to district school some , doing cliorei
and milking COWB nights , and ubonl
the most vivid memory of tlmt time If
of an old brindle cow that I tried tc
milk. She kicked mo in the mos' '
skillful manner , and I turned a complete
pleto Bomeraot in the yard. It aoemi
funnier now than it did then. "
The growing boy studied nights
road all the books ho could got in tha
sparsely settled country , and at tin
ago of fourteen applied to hia father ti
end him to the aondomy in an ad
j nnlng town.
Ills father could not afford it. Th
boy thought it over deliberately , ful
that his study of mathematics , no ;
beyond the instruction cf Roxburv
mtint be gratified somehow , and re
solved to go to the academy and pa ;
hla own expenses. Ho asked hi
father's permission. "Of course , yoi
can go if you want to , " was the nature
rrply , "you nin'tgood fir much hpro
It was the solemn truth Jay had al
ready discovered that he was not bor ;
to bo a farmer by u largo mujsritj
The next morning the ambitiou
youth hastily arose from the breakfat
table , held out his lurid to his sat
prised father and said "Good bye.
There were tears , entreatier , warning'
but ho hurst away , seized hla llttl

Thirty-two yoare later , being charpe

Arriving at Hobart college and car
vasalng the town for work , ho got
chance to keep booka for the vlllaao
blacksmith , who had started n little

learned what the academy had to

uiKS to systema'lo study of trlgoiium-
otry and summing. Ho arose r\t 4
in thu mornins ana gave three hours
to bjok and olato. He bjrrowcd an
old couipitn and a sot of surveying
tools , and , inducing the boys of the.
village to bco iino his ihg and chain

learning practical surveying "without
At the same time ho uppllod him

and the same year , 1852 , ho slipped
out , left his Httlo capital behind , put
hia father in his place , and engaiud to

$20 a month , to complete the imp of
Ulster county. Ho organized his
pirty , and smarted with $5 in his
pocket ; walked for.y miles the first
day and worked A fortnight , when hla
employer suddenly "f.tiled" before ho
had paid them a cent. Gould nt once
resolved to carry on the survey him
self. What now happened to the
fifteen year old boy is best told in
11 u OOULU'H OWN wonus.
"i was out of money , that la to say ,
nil I had WM a 10 cent piece , and with
that last coin I determined not to part.
( [ did not part with it , and never
nhall. I keep it new aa a memento )
Fall was approaching , and unless our
surveys were finished before winter
sot in they would bo postponed till the
next spring , subjecting us to addi
tional expense and perhaps cinalng
their abandonment. I determined to

had neither time nor money to go back
to Delaware county for supplies. I
was among entire atrnugcra and with

nor retreat without money , nnd BO
deeply did I deplore the ruins of our
project that I shod tears. Tired ou
with my lapl day'a trump , hungry and
djt > atod , I was resting in n rocky
nook nottr the town of Shaw.au < ; nnk ,
my tears trickling down on the face of
the compMS , when I was suddenly
halted by a farmer , who asked ma to go
homo with him and mtko a noun-
mark north and south line ,
so drawn that the shadow of au
upright object falling on it will in
dicate mid-day. I was asked to t\ko
dinner first , and joyfully accepted , aa
I had supped on two small crackers
the previous night , had boon hud at
work since daylight , and felt exceed
ingly faint. After a hearty dim or , I
made the noon mark , and wan ubuut

when ho asked what I clurged for the
work. I said I charged nothing ho
was woioomo to it ; but ho offiired mo
half n dollar , insisting that it was the
price a neighbor had paid for ono. I
accepted the money and departed re
joicing. If I had discovered a now
continent , I could not have been moro
elated , for with GO cents in my pocket ,
and the prospect of making other noon
marks along the route , I saw a way tc
carry my enterprise through. lean
never forgot that diy. From that
time forward the fame of my noon

The performance had reached the
fifth item in the programme , eomu
clowns being in the ring , when an
other clown in noting oooturao rushed
in , shouting "Fire ! " At first the
people thought this was part rf the
performance , and laughed ; but immo
dlatoly after the ringmaster rushed in
and gave the alarm. The econo of
horror that ensued was indescribable.
The audience wore so closely packed
that motion waa almost irnpotslblo.
Some in despair flung themselves
from the galleries , aud paronta nuablo
to iavo themselves made a diapcrato
attempt to save their children by
throwing them down into the ring. .
Some ol thu men , wearing the long
coats of the Russian Jews , were en
tangled on apikoH , nnd remained hang
ing In the air , while the whole build
ing resounded with heartrending cries.
In the ring , where thu clowns had
boon performing , there wns a carpet ,
nnd for a Httlo while thu children
were Bifo in the centre of thl * ; but
when the grown up people in their
despair began jumping from tha dross
circle und galleries , the whole ring
became ono inextricable mass , in
which the children were trampled to
death or tutlccatod before the Ihmcs
rnaohid them. But oven this was not
the worst. The horses soon boosing
unmanageable , and about n dozju of
them , driven m&d with pain nnd ter
ror , broku into the ring , trampling to
death the people huddled together
there , All this occurred In less time
than it takes to describe , nnd In
twenty minutes all was over at least
half the people who had boon in the
building being burned to death or suf
focated. At the windows and various
uxits scenes of the most horrible do-
eoription were enacted , some of the
strongest , in their efforts to oxtrlaato
themselves from the struggling mass ,
forcing others weaker than themselves
into the ( lunos.
The fire brigade was summcgod ;
but the engine was delayed by fulling
through the ice , and when It arrived
the water In the tanks wan frozen.
The doors of the circus opened in-
w.ud , add thu aide ontrancoa were
nailed up. Efforts were begun on
Sunday to reouvor the bodies. At the
main entrance to the circaa lay the
burned and blackened bodies rif a heap
of victim , their heads fairly outside
the doori while their bodies wore
hold aa though ill n vice by
these who had crushed upon
thum from behind. Further inside
the ruins many of the bodies were
urnod to a cinder. The total lees of
fu has been ascertained to bo 2G8 ,
nd of these 187 had up to last night
eon identified and claimed by their
ciativoa. Twenty-one bodies are atill
waiting identification , while slity
'liora have boon literally burned to a
