Tho Senate Chamber was hung In block tho doorway and gallery in the tear of tho Vico-Presidents chair being lieavl ly draped, aa woro also tho entrances to tho chamber. Tho galleries woro densely Qllod at an early hour with spectators, and hundreds of persons were unable to obtain an entrance, The floor of tho Bonato was reserved for specifically named officers aud persons, who entered from time to time, and took the seats assigned to them. Among those Were full representatives of foreign lega tions, including tho Ministers from Eng land, Franco, Spain, Russia, Brazil, Turkoy, Austria, and Pern, and tho acting Charged? Affaires of Japan, together with their respec tive Secretaries and attaches, all in plain dross. The members of Congress present wore Sena tors Cameron, Sargent, Kelly, and Morrill of Vermont, Caesotly, Oragln, Conkling, and Rep resentatives Potter, Randall, Holman, Garfield, ana Charles O’NoU, end Judge MoOolmont. of Pennsylvania. Rovordy Johnson was conspic uous In tho assemblage, being ono of tho oldest Und most intimato friends of tho deceased. Seats were occupied by tho officers of tho respective houses, Judges of tho United States Court of Claims, of tbo Territorial Courts, and officers of tho Department of Justice, a largo representation of tho clergy of tho District, tho Assistant Secretaries of Stato, tho Treasury, and tbo Interior, tho As sistant Attorney-General, and tho Assistant Postmaster-General,' heads of bureaus in tbo several Departments of tbo Government, officers of tbo army and navy, tbo Connell and House of Delegates of Territorial Legislatures, civil offi cers of. Territorial Governments, and invited friends. At noon, tbo itev. Dr. Tiffany entered at tbe main door, reciting tbo funeral services, com mencing, “ I am tire Bcsurrcction and tbo Life," and accompanied by the pall-bcarors, Admiral Goldsborough, Oon. McDowell, Qov. Cooko, Montgomery Blair, W. D, Qallaguor, Chief Jus tice Casey. Judge Sohloy, of Maryland, Dr. Peter Parker, Wultelaw Bold, w. W. Corcoran, and the Mon. A. F. Perry. The casket, covered with flowers, was next Drought Into the chamber by tbo colored servants of the Supreme Court, and placed upon a cata falque in the area fronting tbo Secretaries’ desk, Which was strung with floral wreaths, crosses, anchors, etc., tbo largo cross from Now York being placed on tbo Vice-President's desk. Next entered President Grant, Secretaries .Fish, Biob ardson, Boboson, and Delano, Attorney-Gen eral williams, and Postmaster-General Ores well, accompanied by the ladies of tboir respec tive households and tbo immediate relatives of the deceased, followed by tbo colored servants, male and female, in deep mourning. Tho minister concluded his reading by tbe time the assembly was seated. The Bov, Mr. Cleavoland road a passage from tbo scripture, when the Bov. B. Peyton Brown offered a pray er ; after which tho Bov. Dr. Tiffany delivered Iho funeral sermon. Ho said: A prince and a great man had fallen, which had brought those “present and tho whole country to a common sor row. Noticing some of tbo salient points of tbo character of tbo deceased, bo sain : Tbo late Chief Justice was competent for tbo mastery of details, being remarkably tenacious of tboir con clusions, as wore most men who arrive at results * r01 ? A°K*° mtbor than from intuition. Ho was genial in spirit, and of refined habits of life, and therefore his judicial decisions appealed to both tbe understanding and heart. He was a leader of tho sentiment of freedom before it was popu lar, and put into party platforms. Befooled by President Lincoln as Secretary of tho Trea sury, it became his duty to furnish tho sinews of war. An empty treasury meant no supplies, no transportation, no bounties, no soldiers, no suc cess. Ho did not come to the post without special training, and by his exertions and skill an empty treasury was filled, tho armies clothed, and the vast expenses paid during, protracted civil war. The importance of the work in this department could not bo» overestimated. The Secretary of War was enabled to have all tbo troops and appliances he wanted, but without success in finance there .could have been only disaster and defeat. After the war was 'over, although tbe Constitution was strained in consequence of tbe peril of tbe nation’s life, bo afterwards eat iu and passed judgment on somo of hie own official acts. As Secretary of tbo Treasury, dis pensing thousands of millions of dollars, no ono ever accused him of wrong, and bo wont out of that office a poorer man than bo was when ho assumed its duties. After tbe death of Chief Justice Taney, it was but just and proper that tbe late Chief Justice should bo bis successor. Tbe minister then road an extract from a letter written by Mr. Chase on tbe subject of tbo Presidency, in which be said ho did not desire the Presidency or a nomination, nor did ho know, with bis views and convictions, whether bo was a suitable candidate; and yet, tbo minister re marked, an impression' prevailed that Mr. Chase was a. disappointed politician. It was unde niable that no man saw in his acts indications of querulousnosa and bitterness, but tboir oppo site. He was kind to all, a pure patriot, an up right Judge, and a Christian gentleman, it would bo found that bis blameless private life was rendered more conspicuous by bis eminent official position. No acts of his life need con cealment. His character was without a blemish. Scandalous attacks have boon made on public men, and perhaps many of them were Innocent, but none have attempted to tarnish tbe mirror of tbo reputation of tbo deceased, and bis name gooe down to posterity without reproach. Cour teous in bearing, bo superaddod a Christian consecration. Ho was great among men, bat as a child before bis Father in Heaven. Lincoln, tho martyred President, , was followed by Stanton, tbo iron Secretary of War, and Seward, tbo polished Sec retary of State, followed not long ago ; and now another leaves us. bis death hastened by his ar duous labors as Secretary of iho Treasury. Be mombering bis life and bis sudden decease, may wo not say: “My Father, tbo cbarolta of Israel and the horsemen thereof," and devoutly pray that bis falling mantle may rest on one chosen of God. There were about eighty oomages In the pro cession, mostly private, tho President, Cabinet, and Foreign Ministers occupying their own.' Thousands of persons were on the streets as spectators. Tho day was clear. There was a tolling of bolls preceding and after tho funeral services. All public departments wore closed to-day, except the Treasury, which was open un til noon. In tho chapel of tho cemetery, the Hot. B. Peyton Brown began the services by reading from tho burial aorvlco tho office commencing. M Man that is bom of woman bath but a short time to live, and la full of misery." The minis ters present repeated in unison: "I heard a voice from Heaven saying unto me. ‘ write from henceforth blessed are the dead, wno die in the Lord, 1 oven so aaith tho Spirit, for they rest from their labora." The Bov. B. Peyton Brown then read from tho collect, beginning, “0, merciful God. tbo Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,who la Iholtosurrootion andtheLlfe." Tho ministers repeated in unison tho Lord’s Prayer, after which tbo Bov. Br. Tiffany pronounced the benediction, which concluded the services. After the last sad rites in tho chapel, the cas ket was lowered Into one of the temporary vaults beneath tho floor, whore it will remain till to-morrow. It will then be taken out, and, hav ing in the meantime been inclosed in a case, will be Interred in tho lot of Gov. Cook In the now part of tho cemetery. The burial will be strictly private, in accordance with tho request of tho relatives, only tho immediate family being present. The President, accompanied by Mrs. Grant, members of tho Cabinet, and Senator Conkllng, left tho Executive Mansion shortly before noon to«aay, to attend tbo funeral of tho lato Chief Justice at the Capitol. The President and Sec retary Fish occupied tno first cordage, followed by Mrs. Grant and Senator Oonkliug, Secretary Boboeon and Gen. Babcock, Secretary Blohard son and the Attorney-General, ond the Post master-General with Secretary Delano.

Camp charges that this publication was malicious, and that it Injured him to tho ox* tont of $50,000, It appears that Camp was ac quainted with tho late lloraoo Greeley, aud it is charged that ho made use of Mr. Greeley’s name . in various ways to obtain Infiuonoo.

Commissioner Douglass has given satisfaction to tho President and tno Secretary of the Trea sury In tho discharge of tbo duties of his office, and Is generally well liked.

Majority and Minority Report* of an Investigating Committee ot tho Brooklyn Aldermen. New York, May 13.—A special Committee of tho Brooklyn Aldermen to-day submitted ma jority ond minority reports of thoir investigation into tbo affairs of the East River Bridge. The former, after making a lengthy synopsis of tho evidence taken, says that all the materials used in the construction woro of the beat quality, furnished at favorable prices ; that the desirable requirements in quality, construction, aud cost of such an enterprise bavo boon fully mot; that there appears no evidence of fraud, and that all tbo evidence points clearly to -an econ omical management of the funds of the Company unless tho $125,000 paid William O. Kingsley for oalory os General Superintendent should he re garded as an exception. and upon this the Com mittoo say they aro not called to pass Judgment. The majority conclude by recommending a larger representation of the two cities in tho Board of Directors. Tbo minority report suggests tho necessity of a Legislative Committee, which shall go to the bottom of what upon its face appears a gigantic speculation and pnbllo disgrace 5 that an appeal for ft Legislative Committee of Investigation woe defeated by Henry O. Murphy, President of tho Bridge Oompony, and a gentleman, who represents It. in the State Legislature, and ?? y8: * 0 oon «nltteo has not onco visited the office of tho Company to examine Its accounts. It has made no statement of tho services rendered by any employes; it has not measured or compared the price of material; It has employed no exports to examine tho quality and quantity of tho works; It has not subpoenaed

persons from whom tbo Company has purchased $2,000,000 worth of supplies to relate thoir trans actions with tbo Company; it has not examined tho value of tho land taken; it has not exam ined the law, under which it has been dearly shown that it was possible for tho Bridgo Com pany to pay $1 or SIOO for stono and involve no risk by so doing. Tho minority report expresses tho belief that, in the hands 01 tho present ring, $20,000,000 la tho probable cost of tho bridgo, for which tho original ostimato was $0,000,000, and concludes with resolutions covering a re quest to tho Legislature to amend tho Bridge Charter so that no member of tho Company can bo interested, directly or indirectly, in furnish ing supplies : so that all mootings of tho com pany bo public, and so that all supplies amount ing to over SSOO bo purchased upon bids adver tised for ton days in four of tbo principal Now York and throe Brooklyn papers, and to oppoint ft cqmmitteo with full power to investigate all affairs of tbo Company, until which time, or un til tbo management or tho Company has passed into other bands, the City of Brooklyn should as sume no further liabilities on account of tbo bridgo. After a lengthy debate the majority report was adopted by a veto of 20 to 1. AMUSEMENTS. m’vioeer'b theatre. Sir. Edwin Adams began an engagement at McVickor’a, last evening, appearing as Raphael Ruchalct in “Tbo Marble Heart.” For some reason, tbo audience was not largo. It certainly should have boon, for, though tho city was full of counter attractions, there wore none so high In character that they should operate against such a dramatic performance as that of Mr, Adams la “Tho Marble Heart.” This Is one of America’s greatest actors, and tbo role of Raphael in his bands takes rank as one of the finest impersonations on tbo stage. In finish, warmth, and feeling, it has fow peum. Tn bio treatment of tbo character, Mr. Adams shows nice discrimination and artistic tact. During tbo ear lier periods of tbo story bo Is content to remain in the background, permitting tho trenolmut Volarge to servo for a time os tbo central figure. Raphael con afford to await bis opportunity, ■ which comes in tho tWrd act, wherein Mr. Ad ams is pre-eminently powerful. Tbo scene with Marco ho presents with a rare blending of dig nity and self-abasement, of sternness and ten derness, depleting, with striking vividness, tho fearful ravages wrought by his consumlnglove and utter despair. In the last act his pathetic power is brought into play, and assists in completing ono of the saddest and most touching of stago piotnroa. Mr. O’Neill, as T r otar<;o, fairly shared tho honors, giving a most spirited and admirable rendition of tbo part. It has seldom been played better in Chicago,—a fact which was warmly recognized by the audience, whoso approval was plentifully manifested. As Marco, Mrs. Allen was not at her best, being neither buoyant enough In tho lighter phases, nor emotional enough in the intenser phases. Mrs. Stoneall, as Madame Ruchalet, was excellent. The re maining members of the cast call for no especial mention either way. “ Tho Marble Heart'’will bo given this evening, and to-morrow night Mr. Adams appears as i?ooer in tho delightful com edy of “ Wild Oats,” a role which affords a pleas ant contrast to that of Raphael, and ono in which he has no equal on the American stage. Wo remember it os a delicious piece of acting. THE OTHER THEATRES. At Hooley’s, “ Bisks ” entered upon its second week last night, with a largo audience. The play has achieved immense popularity. The Theatre Comiquo Combination from New York, opened to a densely crowded house at the Academy of Music. The performance is one of the finest ever presented m Chicago. Wo shall speak of it more at length hereafter. At Myers'Opera-House the musical'extrava ganza of “Bad Dickey,” by the Kitty Blanchard Burlesque Combination, began its second week. There are several now and valuable additions to the company. Prof. VancCc continues at the Amphitheatre his really wr.nderful illustrations of the degree of perfection to which the science of optical il lusion may bo brought. His decapitation act is one of the genuine marvels and sensations of the day. Tim SAN FRANCISCO MINSTRELS. Birch, Wambold & Backus' Ban Francisco Minstrels appeared at Aiken's Theatre, laut evening, before tho largest audience that that place of amusement has hold for several weeks. The performers showed their appreciation of the compliment paid them by exerting themselves is the utmost to please. If a houseful of laughing and applauding people is any evidence of success in that direction, they succeeded beyond a doubt. Tbo music of the first part is unusually good. The ballad singers are Fredericks, (who is pleasantly remembered in Chicago), Wambold, and Bead.' Mr. Wambold possesses a clear and sweet tenor voice, which he uses with remarkable judgment. Mr. Bead’s voice Is a pure, natural alto,—a voice with which those who call themselves minstrel altos are rarely gifted. Ho sings two pretty ballads very neatly. The comedians are Birch and Backus, both of whom are extremely witty outside of their regular business. Backus is a capital mimic, and ho wisely manages to .use his powers in thac respect on every possible occasion. The description of winter life la a farm house, given by him and Birch, Is one of tho most laughable things over heard on the minstrel stage. Tho other prominent members of tbo troupe are Johnson and Powers, tho dancers, and Bicardo, tho burlesque prltna donna, who are favorably known hero. Those who derive pleasure from a minstrel performance, will find many new jokes and acts In the Ban Francisco's programme. Miss Clara Louise Kellogg and party woro among the interested spectators last evening. APAU FOREVAUau’S SHOW, tho coming of which has been so loudly her alded during tho past past few days, and tho arrival of which has uoeu looked forward to with such agreeable anticipations by every boy aod girl In Chicago, ami by thousands of ohlor people as well, paraded our streets In full glory yesterday, practically demonstrating to tho mul titudes who thronged tho sidewalks tho fact that tho great show had actually come. Tho pageant was one of tho most gorgeous and dazzling ever seen. Tho “ Golden Car of tho Muses.” a su perb plooo of elaborately carved and gilded wagon-work, headed tho lino, containing an ex cellent band, wbilo further along camo tbo ani mal cages, handsomely painted and ornamented. < There was the interesting young Miss “Annie,” just In her teens, whose elephantine sensibilities were so painfully shocked last June In Chicago as she stood by old “ Borneo ” and saw that grin mai(odon breathe his last. T, MAY 13, 1873, u Annie" seems-to have borno tbo affliction with becoming resignation, for she has grown amazingly within tbo past year. A herd of camels marched .meekly along, evidently regard ing with quiet but admiring interest the wonder •ful change in tbo burnt district eluco thoir lost visit., Cozinnol rodo serenely In tbo don of lions and tigers, tho unusual spectacle creating a de cided sensation. In tho rlchuoss and splendor of Its paraphernalia, tho Foropaugh street pageant was worth going a long distance to see.’ Tbo attendance at tho opening exhibition, at tbo comer of Madison and Elizabeth streets, was very, largo. Among tho distinguished people present was Miss Clara Loulho Kellogg, tbo celebrated nrlma * donna, who scorned to greatly enjoy an inspection of tho animals in tbo monagorlo, and who watched tho circus performance with nu air of interest which showed that sho was dis posed to recognize and encourage true art, whether displayed bohlud tho footlights or under canvno. All that has been said and written ot tho Foropaugh show is amply warranted by Its excellence. The collection of animals compris ing tho menagerie is ono of tbo fluoat In quality as woll ns tbo moat extensive ever organized. All tbo specimens aro iu tho best of physical condition, and sorvo to convoy an accurate Idea of what they aro os soon In thoir native wilds. Tho most interesting of all, to our mind, was tho immense Sumatra rhinoceros, which la said to bo ono of tho largest in tho world. Tho monster weighs 3,000 pounds, and his daily allotment of food consists of 200 pounds of hay, two bushels of oats, forty loaves of baker’s broad, ond a barrel of water. This foorful-looking bruto represents an enormous monoy value, Mr. Foronaugh having refused an offer of $40,000 for him. Among tho other exceptionally duo specimens in the collection, many of which woro never before exhibited in America, is an African eland, a dwarf cow, a wbito polar bear, a mon strous California grizzly, an ostrich which stands nine feet high 5 a block tiger, said to bo tho only ono in this country 5 a queer-looking customer called tho vlacko va&rk, from South Africa; a beautifully shaped zebra; an African gnu or horned horse, black as 0 cool, and with an eye positively fiendish in Its ferocity ; a pair of sleek, fat leopards, unusually largo ; several of tho finest lions wo have over soon; two splen did royal Bengal tigers ; an orang-outang almost as largo as tho gorillas told of by DuGhaillu 5 * of huge black wolves with a family of whelps, and a host of other rare ond Interesting specimens of tho ani mal kingdom. Tho museum department is an interesting feature of tho groat show. It is handsomely embellished with choice statuary and richly emblazoned banners and trappings, and contains a list of extremely interesting curiosities. Tho olrcus performance ranks among tho very best. Nothing finer has over boon done in Chicago than tho trapeze perfor mance of Hawloy and Mtaco; tho ropo balancing of El Nino Eddie, who yesterday, for tho first timo in his life, essayed and accomplished tho hazardous attempt 01 throwing a back somer sault without tho aid of his balance polo—a foat never boforo tried ’ much loss achieved, by any other rope performer ; ond the four-borse riding act of Mr. Munroo. Tho show remains throe days longer at tbo corner of Madison and Eliza beth streets. FRUIT IN LOWER EGYPT. Reports from Reliable Growers—Tito Fruit All Right. From the Jonceboro (HI.) Gazette, May 10, In response to inquiries wo have boon favored with tho following reports from some, of tho most reliable fruit-growers in Southern Illinois : VILLA niDOE. Villa Ridge, May 4, 1673. Tho cold torm'of tho.lattor part of April cul minated in a sharp frost on tbo morning of tho 20th, with tbo mercury at 31°. On the hills no damage was done to orchard fruits. About throe fourths of the open Bfrnwbarry blossoms wore killed,—moro or less, according to locality. In some places a fow of tho grapo buds wore tilled, but not enough to affect tbo orop. On tbo bot tom laud tbo frost was moro severe, killing ap ples, poacbos, and pears to sorao extent. Apple and poar trees havo sot full crops, and look very promising. Of poacbos all seedlings %ro very full. Halo's Early, Troth’s Early, Largo Early York, and one or two other sorts aro all full enough, and some enough so to require thin ning. Other varieties promise from half a crop to none at all. Tho berry crop will bo light ou account of tbo drouth last summer and autumn. Your friend, A. M. Brown. DONOOLA. Our reporter from Dongola writes (May 6): . tiioccmm u .Advanced now that tho weather merchant has. in nil promiumiy, away bis supply of white and lulling frosts for a fall market, and it will bo in order to say some thing about our fruit prospects. Apples. —Not one-half enough of those havo boon killed to relievo tho trees from an overbur den, and. unless thinned, many of thorn will bo too small to command the bettor prices. Tbo crons will como in a littlb later than usual, owing to the cold, wot spring. Peaks. —l have examined many trees, and find that not moro than one-eighth of tbo blos soms, or rather fruit, for they are beyond tbo blossom, blasted fruit. Tbo fruit will have to bo thinned to obtain tbo best results . Poaches have been injured to aomo extent. Some of them wore killed, but enough aro loft to give the trees all they can boar up under. Like the early apples, they will bo a little late. Wo expect a good market for our poaob crop. Plums and cherries will bo in full supply. I have examined 1 many trees and find that tbo blasted fruit is in no greater quantity than the past season. Tbo trees will be fall. “Stkawbbbbies.— Some of those wore killed on the 2Gth ult. I should judge about ono-ilfth of the crop. The crop will not bo largo this sea son, and the dry weather last fall retarded the setting of plants from the runners till the sea son was so far advanced that fruit bods wore not started. Besides this wo had so little snow that plants not protected by a mulch wore many of them frozen out. . Baspnorrios and blackberries aro all right. There will bo a full orop of those, though they will como in a little later than usual. • “ Grape-vines are not injured, and wo may expect tho usual yield. Currants and gooseber ries will bo abundant. The bushes that I ex amined wore full of berries, the larger about the size of a poppor-oorn. We have reasons to be thankful for our fruit pro^p^ls; the more so as it will be scarce in many loss favored locali ties.” MAKA'fTHA. Our Mokanda correspondent, undr-r dato of May 8, says in regard to fruit: “Believing that the winter is over, I a*ve in the last few days visited many of our fruit-grow ers to ascertain tho condition of tho crops, and with the following result • “ Peaches.— Budded, voryfow. Seedling,some orchards are full, while ethers have but few on them; yet they look healthy. “ Apples.— ln orchards which boro so heavily last year tho protect for tho present is not good, but that th*r* will be a heavy crop thoro is no doubt. Poars and cherries promise full crops. It is too soon to tell with any certainty anything about grapes, but wo know wo will have any amount of thorn if they do not rot. “ Berries.— Tho exceeding groat drouth of last fall almost, if not altogether, ruined the young strawberry plants that were sot last spring, while those that escaped woro either frozen or pulled out of tho ground by the severe winter, bonco we have no very nice or healthy bods to judge tho crops by—only from old patches, and tboy are not very promising. Peo ple have tho strawberry mamanero this spring, as usual. This time worse than over. One man is sotting eight aoros this spring, al though ho had thirteen acres sot before; and altogether I th*uV there will bo considerably more than 100 acres planted this spring in this immediate vicinity. “Crops.— Wheat looks much hotter than was expected during the early spring, yet we will not have anything to bonst of. Oats and early pota toes are looking splendidly. Owing to tho sovoro and protracted rains, few farmers are through planting corn, and even now tho ground is soaked with water, aud still raining.” Tolegrnplilo Uruvitios* Tho May term of tho Ottawa, 111,, Circuit Court began yesterday oil a docket of 402 cases.
