Rawlins warned him that he must stop drinking.

A Galena, Ill., special says: Thousands of persons from this and adjoining States met in Galena to-day to honor the memory of General Grant, and to take part in the reunion of the survivors of the 12th Illinois Regiment. The reunion was held in the court-house room, where thirty-five years ago Captain Grant presided when Co. F, of the 12th, organized.

After listening to several brief addresses, the veterans adjourned to Turner Hall, where the formal exercises were held. General John C. Black, of Chicago, delivered the principal address. It was an eloquent eulogy of General Grant assoldier and statesman. He held that the greatest achievement of his career was the signing of the treaty of Washington, which had rendered war between the United States and Great Britain almost impossible, and which, General Black, predicted, would be followed by international arbitration under America's lead.
