  ELLISON'S BODY IN POTTSVILLE

     Pottsville, Penn., Aug. 9.--The remains of Corp. Ellison, the arctic explorer and martyr,
arrived here this morning, and were received at the station by the Grand Army and a large throng
of citizens. The remains were immediately taken to the residence of his brother, Alois (*1) Elison
(*2), at Yorkville, where they will lay in state until to-morrow, guarded by a delegation from the
Grand Army Post. They will be interred in the German Catholic Cemetery, with imposing
ceremonies. The Judges of the courts, the Council, eight fire companies, five soldier companies,
twenty-five civic societies, five bands, and other organizations will attend.
