Boston, August 3.
Jo the Editore of the Savatttah Daily Herald
Lieutenant General Grant has been making
almost a royal progress through New Eng
land. The spontaneous orations of the peo
ple have made it so, for the hero himself, as
modest as he is brave, as sparing of words as
he is fertile in military resources, acts as
though he would be glad to forego the
triumphs which the people prepare for him,
and seek the seclusion which is mbre con
genial to him. His reticence and icy indif
ference to the mosC tumultuous plaudits con
trast strangely with the love of parade and an
audience which characterize some of our
less successful generals.
The illustrious soldier arrived in Boston
Saturday evening, the 29th, having stopped
over a few hours in Springfield, and was
escorted by the Independent Corps of Cadets
to quarters prepared for him at the Revere
House. He wa3 accompanied by his wife
and four childrens (two boys and two girls)
and three membert of his staff, including
Col. Parker, a full-blooded Indian, a des
cended of the famous Red Jacket. Rarely
has such a reception bean tendered to any
man lu the city of Boston, as was extended
to the commander of the armies of the Re
public. The streets wore crowded from the
curbstones to the roofs of the houses along
the liije of march, and the reception at the
Depot was so overwhelming that, for a time,
a laige posse of police in attendance was
entirely powerless. An attempt to take the
horses from the carriage, that it might be
drawn by the people themselves, was almost
successful, while the General sat like an ice
berg, with his hat iu hand, as unmoved as
when in his camp at City Point.
After something like order was restored,
and the carriage was allowed to proceed,
the procession went across the town amid peal
log bells and the roar of artillery on
the common, and only reached the Revere to
find thq square in front embargoed by a dense
crowd of people, whose lines were as im
penetrable ns those of General Lee at the
battle of the Wilderness. The General was
obliged to resort to a flank movement, and
as the crowd was most dense near the ladies’
entrance, where it ’had been arranged he
should alight, he took in the situation at a
glance, and was rapidly taken to the main
entrance, where he readily effected a breach
and gained the interior of the works. He
appeared at the window and stepped upon
the balcony from his room in about two min
utes after disappearing inside and silently
bowed his acknowledgments to the shouting
crowd, governor Andrew, who was by his
ride, announced that the General would be
pleased to see his fellow citizens of Boston
in Faneuil, Monday noon, and the General
again disappeared. All efforts to get a
speech ont of him were unavailing
Later in the evening he sat down to an
elegant repast, at which tbo Governor pre
sided, Mayor Lincoln, Boa. Chas. Sumner,
Hon. Henry Wilson pud other distinguished
persons being also present. .
Shortly after, the General was serenaded
by Gillraore’s celebrated band, ten or fifteen
thousand people being present, to whom the
old war-dog silently bowed his acknowledg
ment, Bi before. Still later he was taken to
the Union Club House in Park street, of
whicli the lamented Everett was formerly
President, where he was introduced to a
number of prominent men.
The next day (Sunday) the General atten
ded the Old South Church very quietly,
where Rev. Mr. Manning had the good sense
to preach a purely religious sermon, without
a word of politics or adulation in it. In the
afternoon the General rode through the in
comparable suburbs of Boston, accompanied
by his family and staff and the Governor,
Monday morning was devoted to flying
visits to the*Navy Yard and Bunker Hill
Monument, and at precisely twelve o'clock
the General appeared, by the private en
trance. iu Faneuil Hall. The ovation which
greeted him was almost unparalleled. The
old Cradle of Liberty never was rocked so
wildly amid the forensic thunders of Webster
as when this grim, 6ilcnt soldier stood be
fore the descendents of the Pilgrims, arrayed
in the full uniform of his rank. He was
briefly introduced, as ready to take his
friends by the hand, and he continued to
shake until it was too much for flesh and
blood to stand, when he put his
bands behind-him and nodded to the rest as
they passed. The hall was crammed full,
and running over, and for euery one who
left, there were two trying to get in ; so that
when the General left, there Were thousands
who had not even seen him at a distance.—
There was another rush when he left, and
everywhere he went he was followed by
shouting and struggling multitudes, who
couldn’t express half as much delight a*
Tuesday morning the General and his
party went to Portland on an elegant special
train, stopping in Lawrence to take a walk
through the great Pacific Cotton Mill—the
largest in the world—and to .partake of a
fine collation at the City Hall. The first la
dies of Lawrence waited upon the tables.
Tb« whole trip to ferOasd was a tri-
umphal progress, and the same scenes were
repeated at that beautiful city when he ar- !
At a serenade, Tuesday evening, the Gen- j
eral having appeared, loud clamors were
made for a speech. “ Let us hear your
voice,” was the earnest appeal. “I wish
you a very good night," responded the Gen
eral, in a low, clear voice, and with that he
turnA) away, a grim smile resting for a mo
ment on his iron face.
He held a reception in Portland City Hall
on Wednesday, where he was kissed and
hugged by several enthusiastic youDg women,
rode about the beautiful town, and in the af
ternoon visited Brunswick, where the Bow
doin College commencement was going on,
and where the degree of Doctor of Laws was
conferred upon him. He met here Gen.
Howard, Gen. Ayres, Gen. Chamberlain and
other distinguished officers of the Union ar
my, and remained during the evening to the
re-union of army officers and soldiers who
graduated at|Bowdoin, but a simple monosyl
lable was the only speech he made when
called upon. To-day the General goes to
Augusta, as the guest of the State of Maine.
To-morrow (Friday) morning he will go on
an excursion in Casco Bay. and in the after
noon leave Portland for the White Moun
tains, on his way to Quebec, where he goes
to meet Gen. Doyle, the commander of the
British forces in North America, who was
some time the Lieut. General's guest on the
tented field. Some are disposed to see some
thing significant in bis visit to Canada at this
time, but they are they who always expect
to find “a eat under the meal.” lota.
ADDRESS OF PROVISIONAL GOVERNOR MAR
VLV TO THE PEOPLE OF FLORIDA.
Iu another column we give the Address
of Governor Marvin, on assuming the posi
tion ol Provisional Governor of Florida, in
which he defines the line of policy which will
govern him in the discharge of his official
duties. It will be seen that the Governor
comes fully instructed in regard to the views
and requirements of the President, and that
he requires a willing and strict conformance
on the part of the people with the mode pre
scribed for the re-organization and re-instate
ment of the State in the Union.
In a speech delivered by Governor Mar
vin at Jacksonville on the 2d, he gives some
wholesome advice to the people and freedmen
of his State, which is equally applicable to
the people of the South at large. We make
room for the following extract:
As one of the results of the great rebel
lion, slavery has ceased to exist. With the
fall of the Confederacy,its corner stone crum
bled to dust, and the winds have scattered it.
The war which was commenced, among
other reasons, for the purpose of perpetua
ting the black man's bondage, has, in the
Providence of Goo, brought him freedom.
He can never be euslaved again, (a great
shout among the colored people.) No form
of slavery can ever be established again in
this country. From all we can learn, I think
too, that the people of this State not
only recognized this fact, but they are now
becoming glad of it. The constitution which
you will be called upon to form will recog
nise the new order of things and secure free
dom to all alike.
With slavery out of the way, there will be
notbiug to hinder a restoration of our consti
tutional relationship with the general gov
ernment, and ourbecoming a great, prosper
ous, homogeneous, and happy people. In
the U. S. Senate, Florida will be the peer of
New York, aud in the lower house she will
he fitly represented. The restoration of civil
government will be through a convention to
e called at no distant day to alter or amend
the State constitution. No time should be
lost in becoming qualified to vote for mem
bers of the convention.
In the meantime the preservation of peace
and order will continue in the hand 9 of mili
tary authorities. Their administration of af
fairs here, so iar as I have been able to learn,
has been so wise and so mild, that there
will be no impatient and unreasonable anx
iety for a change. But some will ask, “why
don’t you assume control at once of the civil
administration a9 we prefer civil rule ?” I
answer, I have no authority to resuscitate
the civil authorities or to appoint any one to
office beyond what is necessary io the calling
ot a convention. My business is to assist
and you to iuaugurato a government. I trust
you will cheerfully acquiesce in this arrange
But what will be your conduct when the
wheels of the civil government are set in mo
tion, and the strength of the military force
is greatly reduced in the State. Will we be
have better than formerly ? I remember the
organization called the Regulators, and the
terrorism exercised by them, and the lynch
iug and the murders which occurred in some
parts of the State.- I trust when the civil
authorities are once more established that
you will all yield to them and to the law the
heartiest support. The spirit of malice and
revenge must be banished from among us,
and every one must embark in a mission of
peace and good will. If you would see your
fair and happy land, inviting capital and
good citizens to come among you, you must
see to it that Judge Lynch and his infernal
cohorts are never allowed to scourge the
country again. Let every one yield supreme
obedience to the laws and prosperity will
so 1 >w.
And you, Freedmen, have now exchanged
masters—you must now make law your mas
ter, for it is the law which is to protect you
in your freedom ; no other course leads to
happiness and honor. Will you stand by
me aud oilier officers who may be in au
thority and obey the laws? Obedieuce to
the laws is freedom. My knowledge of the
past makes me earnest in the matter.
We are about *to enter upon anew career.
Between the two races a good understanding
must be created aud continued. Some per
sons, disappointed and vexed, will not have
any faith in the colored man. They will not
think of him with pleasure, now that lie has
become free They have no anxiety to see
him socially and morally elevated because
they have not faith in his capabilities. Let
me say in all frankness to such, try him.
Give him a fair chance. Teach and encour
age him. Your happiness and prosperity are
now inseparably connected with the welfare
of this people. Their, elevation will add to
the power and prosperity of the State. They
cannot remain in a stationary condition.
Their movement must be upwards or they
will become, in many cases, the veriest vag
abonds mid rest like an incubus upon the
country. Iu many respects the white man
is superior to the colored man, and his re
sponsibility is cortespondingly increased. We
want the colored people here. In their mus
cles and sinewftjhe State has immense wealth;
but that they may be made available we must
treat them kindly, give them an education
and make them an honorable part ot the body
politic. And you, my colored friends, must

fear of the Lord. Send them to the Sunday
school. The white man, too, must school
himself to this new order of things. His
responsibilities and duties are of the most
imperious character. He must meet them
like a hero, or the worst of consequences will
follow to himself and family. Schools must
be established all over the land. Northern
teachers must be welcomed—some of them
have their peculiarities, but what of that, let
them come among us—you must also send
out missionaries and teachers from among
yourselves and interest yourselves in promot
ing the intelligence, virtue and general eleva
tion of all the people of the State. The
Ministers of the Gospel have a heavy respon
sibility in this matter. They should be. in
stant in season and out of season in exhort
iug and rebuking with all long suffering and
patience, and in teaching and instructing the
ignorant and the wayward in a knowledge of
their moral and religious duties, and in pro
moting peace on earth and good will to men.
Let every man, woman and child throughout
the. State cease to murmur or complain
against the dispensations of Providence, but
cheerfully and hopefully accept the new or
der of things, as coming from Him whose
ways are not as man's ways, and whose
thoughts are not as man’s thoughts. There
is a bright prospect in the future for our
beautiful State. The storm is past. The
rainbow of promise is seen in the dissolving
clouds. J.et each man do his own duty and
God will bless ns.
A BALLOON ADVENTTRE.
A great balloon ascension recently took
place in Ireland, in which a number of per
sons went up under the charge of Mr. Cox
well, who is distinguished as an aeronaut.
One of the party thus narrates the sequel of
When Mr. Coxwell proposed to descend
he gave to us the strictest instruction hOw to
behave. He told us to sit down at the bot
tom of the basket, with our backs towards
the willow work, and to leave our limbs in
an easy, unconstrained position. He fore
warned' us of the heavy knocks and bumps
we should get, and told us not to mind them.
On landing he told U 9 to get out one by one,
and not to let go our hold of the car on any
account, as the gas in the balloon was now
comparatively exhausted and it had but little
buoyancy left. In spite of Mr. Coxwell’s
injunctions, some of the passengers could
not be induced to sit down. When the car
struck the ground and was carried along with
great violence, knocking us about severely,
the excitement got intense. Some prayed
aloud, others shouted to “let off the gas
others cried out, “We are all lost”—in short,
they behaved in the wildest manner, losing
completely their self control. Several of
them now pulled at the valve cord violently,
and there appeared to be a general panic.
We who sat down, obeying Mr. Coxwell's
commands, were/'trampied upon by others,
as if it were a struggle for life. At last the
grapnel caught and the car settled down
squarely on the ground, when Mr/ Coxwell
gave the word to get out; but he repeated his
injunctions to leave the car one by one, and
by all means to hold on to the basket
UDtil all were out. Instead of that it
was a scramble, each man for himselt —the
more powerful men thrusting back the
weaker; those getting out first abandoning
their hold of the car as soon as they reached
solid ground ; others, among whom was Mr.
Coxwell, held on, but were obliged to let go,
when the balloon, relieved of the weight of
several persons, rose again with renewed
buoyancy. All this happened in but a very
few moments, so that when I climbed upon
the basket the balloon was already at least
fifteen feet high, and I wa9 left with a single
companion, Mr. Halferty. Mr. Coxwell and
some of the passengers tried to hold on to
the cable, but their strength was not ade
quate to the task; the anchor broke loose,
and off we went rising to a height of about
one thousand feet. My companion said calmly
“The Lord have mercy upon us ; our lives
are lost. We had better he resigned.” I
was looking out for the valve cord to pull
the valve, but could not find it. At length
I discovered it entangled in the netting. I
pulled it, but alas! it had no longer any
connection with the valve. My companion,
who saw me occupied with the cordage,
asked me whether I understood the man
agement of a balloon? “No," I replied,
“ but if I did it would be of little avail since
the valve cord is broken.” About the same
time I discovered-that we were again falling,
so I called out to my companion to cheer up,
that we might yet be saved. We were
gradually coming nearer to the earth, and
the anchor was then striking the ground
from time to time. I looked out for assist
ance, but could discover none in the moun
tain wilderness we were then careering over.
At length I saw several men, to whom I
shouted out for butp. They, however,
stariug with vacant gaze, stood motion
less like so man> statues. Onward we
swept. I saw another batch of men, to
whom I made the appeal, bnt with a
similar result. Some remained motion
less; a man and a woman ran away at full
speed, and one tall fellow actually dropped
down on his face, struck down with £ter
ror. On we swept—then a fearful concus
sion of the car—the grapnel had caught. -
“Prepare for a bump:” I shouted to my
companion; almost immediately the balloon
surged down, and afterwards the car struck
the ground. Mr Halferty was pitched Quite
out by the - violence of the shock, whilst I
was thrown against the netting, and fell back
again into the car. I tried to scramble through
the ropes, but I was in an instant again house
high—for the balloon, relieved of the weight
of Mr. Halferty, rose with renewed vigor.
Mr Halferty, although he had a heavy tum
ble, did not lose his self-possession, but im
mediately caught the cable and tried to se
cure it, but his poor strength was of no avail.
The anchor broke loose and away I went. I
did not rise high. The balloon moved on
very soon in a horizontal direction straight
towards the sea, which we were then rapidly
nearing, at the height of about twice the
length of the mooring cable. The thought
had struck me several times to try by any
means to make a rent in the balloon, for, al
though I had no knife, I might have torn
the silk with my teeth. I climbed up a short
distance, but then it occurred to me that
a9 soon ns the gas escaped, the anchor
would strike the ground again, and I
should not be able to support the con
cussion while hanging in the netting, as It
was suffering a good deal from the shocks I
had sustained. I descended, therefore, into
the car, and to my great relief found that
I was gradually coming nearer to the earth.
The anchor stiuck the ground several times,
but never held fast, scattering about tb6 turf
aud stones like feathers. I saw men work
ing in a field,and shouted to them, “For God's
sake help me, or I shall be lost—secure the
anchor!” They understood me at at last,
but too late. Away we swept before them,
the anchor plowing up the ground several
acres in length Coming to a farm I shouted
out to the people standing there the same
appeal. Some women, with their quick,
humane instinct, were the first to conceive
my danger, and exhorted the men to hurry
to my assistance, they themselves running as
fast as they could to tender what little help
they might be able to give me. The anchor
struck in a willow tree. I shouted ont to
the people below to secure the cable and an
chor by rop.es, which they did. The evening
was now beautifully still, the breeze had died
away, and the balloon was swinging calmly
at her moorings above the farm yard. One
of the men asked me whether I had a rope
with me, or how I intended to get
out. I told them only to take care of
the cable, because the balloon would
settle herself by-aad-by. I w«»
congratulating myself on a speedy es
cape from qsy dangerous position.—
1 had not counted on the wind : a breeze in
about six or eight minutes sprung up, and
tossed the balloon about like a large sail. A
crash—and the anchor was loose again. It
tore through the trees, flinging the limbs and
branches about like matches. It struck the
roof of the farm house, splintering the chiui
nevs and tiles like glass. On I went. I
came near another farm, shouted ont for
help, and told the men to secure the anchor
to the foot of a large tree close by. The an
chor was soon made fast, but this was only a
momentary relief. The breeze again filled
the half-empty balloon like a sail; there was
a severe strain on the cable ; tben a dull
sound ; and a severe concussion of the bas>
ket. The cable —strange fatality !—had bro
ken, and the anchor, my last and only hope,
was gone. I was now carried on in a straight
direction towards the sea, which was but a
short distance ahead. The anchor being lo6t
I gave up all hope. I sat down resigned in
the car, and prepared lor the end. All at
once I discovered that a side current was
drifting me towards the mountain; the car
struck the ground, and was dash
ed along at a fearful rate, knocking
down stone fences, ahd breaking everything it
came in contact with in its wild career. I
think I mast have gone at least at the rate
of ten or twelve miles an hour. Almost cer
tain death seemed before me, yet to jump out
on this passage would have ensured my be
ing dashed to pieces on the rocky ground
beneath. I was tossed about in the basket
as the peas in'a child's rattle, and cannot com
prehend at this moment that my bones were
not all broken. By-nnd-by, the knocks be
came less frequent; we were passing over a
cultivated country, and the car was, as it
were, skimming the surface and grazing the
tops of the hedges. I saw a thick hawthorn
hedge at some distance before me, and the
balloon rapidly sweeping towards it; that
was my only chunce. I rushed to the edge
of the car, and flung myself down upon the
hedge. I expected a severe tumble, but
had a mild fall. The car did not, as I feared,
strike me, but the moment I left, it rose over
my head. I slid down on the other side of
the hedge. I rose on my leet, and then tried
every limb. They were whole, and I need
not describe my feelings at this almost mi
raculous preservation. When I looked up I
saw the balloon soaring majestically over the
Bea, from Which I was about a quarter of a

Mystery Unravelko.—Last weeK a mys
terious prisoner, in irons, has been “Yanked”
across continent, from Memphis, via
Cairo, to Washington. The prisoner was
“heavily ironed” and “chained to a guard.”
At every station a man came on board the
cars who recognized the prisoner as John H.
Surratt. This fact was immediately tele
graphed to New York, the man’s deposition
was sent to Washington, and the man him
self became at once an object of interest to
the town in which he lived and the rest of
mankind. He was only next in the nation’s
§-atltude to the man who saw and spoke to
ooth in the cars of the Pennsylvania
Central Railroad a few .days after Mr.
Lincoln was assassinated. Finally the pris
oner reaches Washington, and turns out
to be, a9 the' Philadelphia Bulletin says, “not
even an assassination conspirator, but only a
common fellow, named S. W. Fuller, who,
during the late Presidential election, it is
charged, falsely represented himself to be an
agent of the Executive Committee, of which
Senator Harlan was chairman, and went
about the country making collection, pro
fessedly for the benefit of the Union party.
He succeeded in swindling to the extent of
$45,000." This is disgusting. The prisoner
has no to be a “common swindler,”
particularly after all the State of Pennsylva
nia had gone mad about him, and a man at
every station had pronounced him to be Sur
ratt. Beside, he had ouly cheated a political
party, and that is so “common,” that it is
novel to take any punitive measures against
it.— N. Y. Commercial.
Whisky in Butter Tubs.—A smart fellow
from Kingston came to Charlotte last even
ing in tLe steamer Bay State, bringing a ten
gallon keg of whisky and two tubs of butter.
He paid duty on the liquor, but the butter
was free. He had put into the centre of the
butter tubs a keg of whisky, and covered both
nicely with butter. The whisky kegs were
new, and absorbed so much of the whisky
that there was a vacuum, and when the tubs
were put in a car to come to the city, the
cheat was discovered by the swash of the
liquor. The property was seized, of course,
and confiscated.— Rochester Union. '
Loso Delay op a Letter. —On the 13th
inst. a package of letters was received at the
post office in Woodstock, Vt., that was
mailed at Irasburgh, Vt., May 2, 1844, more
than twenty-one years ago. Several of the
letters were of considerable importance. The
package does not bear evidence of having
travelled much, and the supposition is, that
it has been all this time concealed, by acci
dent, in a comer of some post-office, and has
been brought to light by a recent “house
cleaning,” and deposited in the mail without
suspicion ot its antiquity.

marily hung, a few days since, at Bergen,
Missouri, under the following circumstances:

be there to take his blouse off, remarking
that he did not like blue coats. Hie lieuten
