Mr, Upiiam was bom at Leicester, Mass

There have been very diflercntfpntiinentsl
among different nations in repnrd tothej
treatment llicy should ive to the remains 1
oTthe dead. At onetime an ciTort wasj
made to embalm tlio dead, in order to pre-1
rette. every feature, etcry lingering linea-
meni of the countenance, as it was when i
I i tin!?. At another, the exact reverse of
this was pursued, and instead of attempting
tri preserve the feature or form, even, they
burned the body and timed only the ashes
The sentiment of our Saxon race is en
tirely differdit from cither. Their seuti
hicnt and their wish is, that when the fam
ily die, they may be gathered together in
one -group, in the same graveyard; anil
whrlqer it may be in a marble tomb above,
in rtic peaceful and powerful gravo bc-
ueath the ground, that they may lie, side
by tide, where only " a lew feet ol tullon
earth divides each winding sheet."
It is in accordance with sentiments
know to he universal, that Congress has so
ofien, and I believe sojustly, tent an escort
of its own members to tho home of aflec
tinnaio relatives with the remains of the de
parted associate. It is for this causo that
jou see so many of these mule and grate

The House thereupon ndjuurned until
memory of our lamented benefactor, Uev.

that this work should be-prosecuted imme

will avail themselves of the first opportuni
ty to do o.
A very pleasant ami profitable Conven-
and there were present about thirty Mutes,
anil resolutions were passed lo raise means
to aid in the erection of a Monument to
the memory of our lamented benefactor.
The Committee exceedingly regreticd that
a larger number of .Mutes were not present,
and will endeavor, hereafter, to see that all
arc supplied with cards for the Contention.
A new Committee of eight were chosen
last Not ember, to perfect the arrangements
in season for the next Convention, that all
might be prepared in season ; and il is hop
ed that there may he a lary r attendance at

they will have the pleasure of meeting their

this State which will awaken an interest in
those of other Slates.
Also, to see what means the Conrention
will devise to establish an Annual Society
(or the improieraeut of their education. It
is a lamentable fact, that many who have
been through a course of study, have re
turned to their homes and neglected it, un
til they aro in no better condition than they
were before they went to 'school. Some
thing should be done to remedy this-ctil,

the next Contention, and also to transact
any other business which may bo deemed

New Hampshire and other States, are c.v
peeled lo be present and address the Con

Arrangements will bo made with the
presidents of the several railroad compa

The poor man soon finished his work,
and came across the field to the path where
he had left bis coat and shoes. While he
put on his coat, he slipped one foot into one
of his shoes ; feeling something hard, he
stooped down and found the dollar. Aston

round, and looked again and again; then
he looked on all sides, but could see no

Dr. Hume, principal medical attendant on
his Grace's slaff, on preparing i'ie list, hast
ened to the Duke's lent, and, giving ihe
pas word, was ushered in b) the sentinel.
His Grace was asleep. The doctor was
aware of the fatigue ihe Duke's Bystem had
undergone, and hesitated to wake him.
The order of the Duke, oh the other hand,
had been issued with more thin usual per
empionues" ; and the doctor ventured to
give the Duke a shake. In an instant his
Grace, dressed as he had beca, in full regi
mentals, was sitting on the bedside. 'Head,'
was the significant command. For more
than an hour had the doctor rnad aloud the
harrowing list, and then his voice failed, and
Ins throat choked with emotion. He tried
to continue but'could not.
Instinctively he 1
raised his eyes to the Duke. W elhngton

werocoursmg down his cheeks. In a mo

the stern command, and while his physician
continued for hours, the ' Iron Duke' sat by
the bedside, clasping Ids hands, and rock

A credulous clown went to tho clergy

consternation, that he had seen a ghost.

" Why," said Diggory, " as I war going,

right up against the walls I sees the ghost."
" In what shape did il appear 1"
" For all the world like a great ass." i
"Go home and hold your tongue," re
plied the clergyman; "you are a timid crea

throws a body up into tho ttir and catches

Every one knows that a stone dropped
from the mast of a vessel in full sail, falls
at the foot of the mast, just as it would do
if the vessel were at rest ; and that a bottle
of water, inverted and suspended above tho

another placed exactly underneath, though

Fairtax. This bull, says tho New Eng-j

when exhibited at Ule North Lincolnshire
Society's meeting, and won the first prize
in lfi-lU. He was also exhibited at Great
Yorkshire Society's meeting at Hull in
1S41, and received the first prize as the best
bull calf. He was bred by Mr. Whitafcer
Hurley; the properly of Mr. Henry Watson,
Walkeringhatn, near Bawtry.
The short-horned breed of calll6 was
produced in England by choice selections
of fine animals; and by a long, judicious
attractive sight. As a mere representa
tion of n particular atyio of architecture,
or as n model of imitation, it might ex

tectural design should be in harmony
with tho features of the surrwundini;

completing the cflect sought, nnd which
cannot be accomplished without it.
A farm with its buildings, or a simple
country resilience with the grounds which
enclose it, or n cottage with its door-yard
nnd garden, should be finished sections
of the landt'capo of which it forms n
pari, or attractive points within it; and
of consequence complete each within
itself, nnd not dependent upon distant
accessories to suppryt it an unperiiim
in impcrio, in classic phrase. A towui,
a motiutnnnt, a steeple, or the indistinct
outline of n distant town may form a
striking feature in a pictorial design and
the associations connected with thorn, or
the character in which they are contem
plated, may allow them to stand naked
and unadorned y other objects, and
still permit (hem to fill up in perfect
harmony tho picture. This idea will
illustrate thc importance of embellish
ment, not only in the substitution of
trees ns necessary appendages for a
complete rurnl establishment, but in tho
erection of all buildings necessary for oc
