' t m i ?Uu!? J o 9031 THE MELANCHOLY PAGEANT. I THE RECEPTION IIP TOE REMAINS or JOHN QUIWCY ADAMS. Two Hundred Thousand People in the Streets to witness the Ceremony. Xhe Q-reat Ftmeral Procession, dec <bc ?fcc. Yesterday having be?n fixed upon for the reoeptton in New York cf tha remains of ex-President Adams, oar eitLaws were all prepared to do honor to the memory of the men who once filled the nation's Chair of State. There were upwards of two hundred thousand human MIEgs la tne streets, 10 pay me ihi mu ?w mains of the great man. No word waa whispered about the party to whioh he b longed; ne allusion wa? mad* to tali political lift. It wss enough that he waa onoe the people's etoloe; and all delighted to honor whan tha nattoa not only, but the world, acknowledged sage. We hare often been called an enthusiastic people; perhaps we are so. We know how to receive a living here, and we certainly know how to ihow respect to tha renowned dead Washington, Lafayette, Jackaon, Harri?on_Adawis, and others, who have been honored when alive, and mourned whan dead, are proefii of this. We do everything with a will, a* the aailora Bay, be it to fbi* a hero or to bury a statesman. At about noon yesterday, the military and oitissns were aeen In thonaanda moving from the upper part of the city, towards the lattery and Whitehall; regiment after regiment of horsemen and footmen, passed down, with measured tread, and took up their appointed petitions. Beautiful muaio was diseoursed by competent bands ; the rleh sounding horn, ths shrill life, the rattling drum, were all oaltad Into nse. There were gay sights to be seen; yet over all there was oast, as it were, a shadowy pall; the soldiery had as martial a bearicg as ever, but their colors were shrouded in black orape; the sword kilts of the ofloeri were bright as ever, but th?y were knotted with black orape; the high mettled chargers obamped their bits as Impatiently aa ever, but their bridles were bedecked with crape. Marshals with Ibaautiinl ohapeaus wrre hastening along the lines, but | they won long searf.i or black satin and crape, and their golden beaded batona were all veiled with the same ; eqnlpt ges were out, bat they, too, were In orape; in faot, the whole olty might be said to have put on mourning weeds. A most remarkable appropriateness, with all this, w*s obssrvable In the atmosphsre. The sun shone down ooa the bay and harbor In great beauty, but withal through a kind of mellowing mist, not damp enough to be disagreeable, but more like that of a morning or evening daring the Indian summer. Sadness aeemed to pervade the vary atmosphere. The numcroua vessels at anchor and at the wharves, had their oolors at half mast. Many of the ordinary avooations of the industrious about the wharves, oeaied for the time; and it was as though the great metropolis of the western world had, for the time, partially suspended action, to mourn for the loss ef the great statesman of the East?all felt that It waa a funeral day. . As the hours passed on, troop after troop flled along the pathways in the Battery, and took positions as dl r*at?d by thalr oonmaadHU. Baads of policemen war* seen mtrohing down la orderly ompmies, and taking up their stand wkneTn their iwvioes wire required ? barniahed etare. which the day before glittered in all their bru>aiae;s, vere now (hrou-led in the lame sombre erape that oloaded everything. AM moved in ocm- | parativ* silence; milita:y, police, member* of *ivio *ocieties, all performed their respeotiv* part* noiselessly ?;id silently. They were not aware of It themselves. bat the oeeaeion reamed to make it appropriate that it I ahonl<i be so; and therefor*, whatever w?? mid, was spoken la uader ton**. a* if the very words spoken came mi.ffl -d fr.'ai the tongue, and asii the s<Idler* had been pertormlrg the faaeral rites for some departed companion Such wte tbe effect of surrounding oiroamstauoes While ta-y awaited the arrival of tha boat, the military leanefl upun their gaos in a Buiiog mood, and it tb-y merch.d to ohang* position, it ?aa in many inataoaes without mu*i<) Kaneral wu written upon everything Sadners was epr?-sd over tae whole scene At hvif past on* o'elock, tbe Orand Marshal and s*v*rtl oi his aics, mounted, cane dawn to the wbarf of the Uuiteil 8tat.ee barge office, to saparintend tbe landing of ti e body from the ferry boat Tbis small oavaloade partook of and added t* tbe monrmul appearance of thiogsalready observed The Marshall w?r? drested In black, and wore loni; black scarfs, while their horse* wore saddle cloths and trappings of tba same oolor Their orders were given in uaJer toaee; and the arrargeBieati having b??n completed, tae gaard of honor, "Vinoeat's L'gbt tiaerd," accompanied by Bloontfleld's escelleat United Stats* Band, frsm Uovarnor's leland, took their place on the platform wbera It was intended the landing should take plaoe To prevent all disturbance aad luconventance from the preasura of tbe crowd, the Chief ef Police, aided by Capt.

TIIS CEREMONY AT TUB C1TT HALL?TH* RECEPTION Of THE B >DY. From ths roof of the City Hull, the speotaele was truly affecting and imposing. Takiog a survey around, tbe eya at oace peroelved emblems of mourning fur the departed statesman, near, and all around. The nearest ohi'ots were Tammany Hell, the Astor House, tbe American Hotel, Peale's Museum, Lovejjy'a Hotel, and other buildings, all of whloh were surmount d with tha national flag at half mast, *nl trimmed with black roe eumeroua masts af tha shipping on the feast and North rlvera, were deoorated in th* same melanoholy way. as were also the various fUcataffi ?nd liberty poles in tha aity, as far as the eye could reach. Looking down, the spectator beheld theerowisin tha Fark, and tbe hearse drawn by eight white horses, robed In black , which was aonvejing to their last resting place tne re mains af tha illustrious statesman, sane and patriot, whaaa voice, time and again, has reverberated in tha eonnella of the nation, and whose elcqnenoe has so often and so recently entranced oil who heard It. The scene from this elevatien was truly grand, when it Is known that the proeeasion was tha spontaneous offering cf tribute to departed greatness, by the fellow citlaens of the great deceased, who, living, was respected, and dead, is venerated. The benuMful weather added to the soleaa uiiy of th* seen* k.mergeJ, as we junt uti, from the toll aud droari _.<-** of winter, the beautiful sunshin*, th genial atmosphere, aud the ol*ar Italian s*y, teamed typical of th* great and glotious oYiug* whloh earn* ow th* lamented statesman whoa* funeral cvrltgt *u paasiug btf>r* us, follow* ed by all the eivie, military aai navel oignitaries la tai* region, a'well ?* by tboustnJs of our fellow-cltlztnain every d"parttn?at of life, i'altenfroai h'scourtry at an advanced age, to a place, " where the wicked e?a?? from troubling, 8iid ibe weary are at r?it."
