S. Grant has been expected, and when it ■was' flashed over the wires yesterday that he had quietly passed away, general feelings of sorrow were expressed on every hand. Whilö the distinguished citizen and soldier had his faulto like other mortals, they were out-balanced by his noble qnalities of hand and heart. He had a warm hold on the affeetions of the American people, who will sincerely mourn hia loss. The death of General Grant teaches one lesson, it teaches ub that a man may be raised in obscurity and want and yet hand down to postority a name that will live through all ages. No man was better known than he. His fame was not confined to this nation alone, bnt across the ocean and in foreign lands the people sought to do him homage. He was beyond question the greatest general of modern times.
