"Many of thoeo Informed ns to General
Grant' * actual condition look upon the plan of
removing him ( ram a comfortable homo with
grave mitirlvlnRS. That his life now bangs
upon n very Blonder thread there is vary llttlo
doubt auong them. His throat in ono aspect
wns worse last night than over before. Col.
1'rod Grant ( old a reporter last evening that
his father had totally lust his power of
ipeech. Ho is still able to articulate
faintly , but oven thoeo moat accustomed to
his mode of speech cannot make out what be
says , except &t very brief Intervals , when his
throat was temporarily clogged with mucus.
This is something that has never happened before -
fore , and has developed in the last twenty-
four hours. It is said that his mouth can no
longer bo opened sufficiently wide to enable
the physicians to muko ocular examinations ,
and wlion they feel of the affected parts tbey
give the patient such excruciating pnln that
they retrain from it aa much ns
passible. In outward appearance
when clothed and in his easy chair with
wraps about him the general baa not very
greatly changed. Ilia face ban aged , it is
true , and is seamed with wrinkles , but it re
tains to a great degree Its natural fullnecs.
But aside from this , he is but the shadow of
himcelf. His body is wasted almost to a
skeleton and the bones of his bands and
wristsshow through tha tightly drawn skin
with the ghastly distinctness of a caiisump
tlve. That which most shocks th"se
who of Into have seen the
general is the great malignant looking swelling
which has appeared on his neck under hia
right eat. It has tf late grown with great
rapidity and is now as big as a man's two fists
put together , It IB kept concealed most of
the tiino by wraps about his throat.
Of course the general' household are bettor
able to judge than anybody else what is pru
dent and what is imprudent ( or
him to do , but not withstanding their decision
that It is safe to make the experiment they
are going to make , there is among m any
who have closely watched his case from the
commencement a fealing of grave anxiety as
to the roiult. They doubt whether the
mountain oir will suit the general.

own hands adjusted a woolen skull cap and
drew closer the neck scarf to as
to conceal the uely swelling
which filled out the right eido of the neck
even with tbo ear. He watched with appa
rent interest the movements of Dr. Douglas
and Harrison , who were arranging the chairs
and bags so that the general could be as com
fortable as po siblo during the trip. The
heavy drapery was BO arranged as to prevent
any draughts from reaching the sick man.

Tbo tide through the tunnel In the city
was the worst to be experienced
during tbo entire trip , The sharp
curves shook tha c r a little. Mrs. Fred
Grant , Mrs. Ulysses Grant and Mrs Sartorls
were also in the car , while the children of the
household were under tb& care of Col. Fred
Grant , in the forward car.
Geuoral Grant passed n restless night
This morning he looks much depressed and
emaciated. While ho watches everything
that Is done he does not speak a word.

Grant was naif reclining on a sofa with Dr.

Stony Point woa passed at 0:15 : , "When
Anthony Wayne stormed Htony Point. "
shouted Col. Grant above the clatter of the
train BO that the phjilcian and his patient
could hear , ' 'my grand-father , Oapt. Dent ,
was commaudur of the "Forlorn Hopo. " and
when they ro.iched the falls he had his men
stand on each others shoulders and then the
captain scaled the rampart over their
heads and stood on the wall and
trailed his men up ono by ono over the human
ladder. They then descended and opened
the gates of the fortroas and let Wayne's men
in. " The general inclined his head and smllnd
faintly at the recital of the incident. "Up
hero at Tocouderoga , " continued the colonel ,
"father's great grandfather and his brother
were killed in the French-Hnglish war about
17G1. " Too goceral heard and nodded assent.
About ten o'clock the general turned a
trille in the chair in order that he might com
mand a bettor view of the right bank of the
river. lie wanted to get ft glimpse of West
Point an the train huriied on. The scene
was growing faml'lan ' to tbo sick man , ecsnes
of bis cadetsliip were corning to view , and nt

Point swept into view. The general noddid
acrofii the river and Again amiled AS Mis.
Grant glanced across at him to see if ho
was luting- the point they were parsing ,
IIu smiled M ho nodded. The Udies hurried
to the river lido of the car to watch , and Col.
1'reil. Grant pointed out the pllo of rocks
which ho hod hoard his father mention in tell
ing of the swimming adventures of student
life. Till ) general epoku no word , but fol
lowed the sccnea with hU eye , looking rear

himself heard. Dr. Douglas requested him
not to make aud effort to speak and made him

CHICAGO , III , Juno 1C. Traders in wheat
were pretty thoroughly at sen to-day , owing
to the wide diversity in the estimaocs mndo
respectively by Chicago nnd New York stat
isticians regarding the visible supply state
ment. Operators had very generally calcu
lated upon an increase , but Instead the Chicago
cage statement showed a decrease of nearly
four hundred thousand bushels. This , to
gether with the estimate by the Ohio agricul
tural bureau that the next crop would not
exceed 270,000,000 bushels influenced
free buying early and the market
opened Jo higher. The Now York statement
indicated an Increase of somewhat more than
half n million bushels In the visible supply ,
and this held the market down and oausod an
early decline of Jc Under moderate buyinf
the market rose again advancing i@Jc ; eased
off J@SJc ; , and closed on the regular board Jo
over yesterday. The close on tbo afternoon
board showed no appreciable change. Liver
pool advices quoted spot wheat firmly hold.

veloped in coin. The visible supply state
ment showed a material decrease both by the

NEW YOUK , Jnno 13. Long Branch
baa something to talk about la advance
of the real opening of the summer season.
Phil Daley , the loading professional gambler
blor of the pines , whoso Pennsylvania
Olub la the meat gorgeous g-imlug hell tn
America , has to-day moved into the
villa which ho lisa added to hh belong'
ings. His neighbors hara for years boon
accustomed to the openness and splen
dors of his business , and aomo of them
had watched the erection of the real
donco ; but the embodiment of a cbapol
in the premises is a revelation whloh ex
cites them considerably. The honsn la
much bigger than the average of the aoa-
tide dwollingo , and ita architecture is
ornate in the extreme. Eccantrlc gables ,
Irrovolcnt pieces of roof , and other dc-
vlcoa , break the lines in all parts , and atone
ono corner rises a round turret somewhat
like the splro of a church. A solid wall
of brick , with an ornamental iron fence
and gate , surround the plot , The exter
ior curfaco of the honso la polished and
etained hard wood , In n semblance of
tiles. At each side of the front door is a
panel of carved wood , leading the observ
er to suppose at the first gllmpso that
thereon ho would find the naino of aomo
public Institution. Bat on ono is let-
tared "Tootuey" and on the other "Ma
gie" the names of Daley's two children.
The Interior ta decorated In a most costly
and showy siyU' Handsome natural
woods , exquisite fretcj , art tiles and elab
orated wall paper make the rooms quite
resplendent. ' The cost of the honso ,
aaldo from the beautiful furnitnro put
into It , Is said to hava baen § 100,000.
The apsitmeat which Is more curious
to Long Branchern than waa the blno
chamber to Bluebeard's fflveais a chapel ;
bnt no maglo key has locked Ita door
against intruders , and during the week ,
until to-day'a arrival of the dwellers ,
visitors have baen numerous. The fur
nishers were finishing their work and a
man had been deputized to explain , the
place of worship to all ocqulrora. The
chapel in mlnaturo Is twelve feet cquare.
The floor Is polished wood , with an ori
ental rug on it. The walls are frescoed
in an imitation of dark drapery , the pat' '
tern being copied from the hangings in
the Pope'a private chapel at Rome. The
coiling Is painted like eky , in shading
blno and gray , and at the center ia a
whlto dove on the wing , bearing an olive
branch. The ouo window is a piece of
extensive work in etiincd glass , cathedral
fashion. The altar is a structnrn fash
ioned like these in Roman Catholic
churches , but smaller , being about six
feet long and eight feet high. It Is
made of carved and finely decorated
wood , the prevailing eDiors balng maroon
and gilt. Two heads of angoh are em
bellishing features. The draperies are
specimens of flno embroidery. The
rorodos , or back p'uco ' , la ornamented
with carvings nnd Kuiig with cloths. A
solid gold crocn , ( ! tohavo cost $4,000 ,
Is kept in a safe at night , but by day Is
to stand on the altar. The receptacle
for the host , wafers representing the
blood ot Christ in the ceremony of com
munion , is provided E3 tn a regular
church altar.
The story goes that Daley hopes t3
atone for hla professional aina iu a gamb
ler by tblo attention to religion , but
these who know him well drchro that ho
has built the chapel in deference to Iho
\vhtiua of his wife , \ybo ia u notably piona
woman. Tjoro Is likely ( o bo eorao difll-
cully in the project to far oa the services
nro concerned. Dileywhuea to engage
tlio ItiV. Father MoFoy , pastor of the
Star of the ISoa Ohurou , directly asrosj
the ctrout , to celebrate a maaa in the
Daley chapel every morning throughout ;
the season , The priest Is willing to no >
cept the offer , which contemplate * a sep
arate ealary of § 500 per year ) but his
application to hla bishop for permission
IIOH not yet bsen acted on , and the im
pression is that it will meet with a refu
sal , on account of Daley's connection
with gambling. If BO , the request will
bo renewed by Mrs. Daley , In any cage ,
