THE BURIAL- OF THE DEAD.
The opening of theSpring, to which the

cheering' associations,-has this year been
imarked 'byitivient has obscured its bright
lfisdsiae season -of hope-andof

The first-hourrafter the appalling catas
trophe of Wednesday last were marked, as
might be expected, by" high excitement.
Astonishment, and -a -feeling -of-dismay,:
mingled with intense and painful curiosity,
seized upon the entire community. All
tongues were busy -in-pressing, or-answer
ing, inquiries.- Sympathy with theberea
ved, lamentations: over- the public loss,
wonder at the 'astounding - dispensation of.
Providence, and speculations as to- the
consequences, seem to absorb- all -minds,
and, for the time to supercede all other
The next day crowds -poured down to
the wharf where the bodies were expected
to be landled, and. though long disappoint
ed, continued to wait, hour after hour, till
at-length the minute guns front below an
uounced the departure of the coffins from
on board the Steatner, and the commence
ment of their melancholy route up to the
city. As the boat' which bore them ap
proached her lauding place, the surround
ig- shore., were covered with spectators.
while a long line of carriages stood waiting
to follow in the train which bore the re
mains of the dead. Six hearses, in horrid
comtiguity, stood side. by side, and re
ceived in succession their sad freight, as
their coffins, borne by Seamen and follow
ed - each by an--escort of Naval Officers,
,were brought-along through a lane of sym
pathizing citizens, -who opened to the right
and left to let them- pass. More -than-sixty
carriages followed to the President's- man- -
sion, whither the:dead were carried by- the
President's particular desire, and deposited
in- the -East Room.- .Yes, in that .vast
apartment, so -often -the scene of brilliant
festivity-so often echoing" the sttain of
joyous music and the mingled voices of
the gay--now converted, by the,..aet : of
God, into a sepulchral 'chamber,cold and
silent as the grave. Here-they were :visi- -
ted during the whole of Friday.:bv nu
merous groups, moved by the irresistible
feelings -which, draevs us to-:.epectaclesof
terror and grief.- -The:.upper parts-of-the
comins were-open,-the-countenances of the
dead, (with but one -exception,) being ex
posed to the public view, covered, however,
with plates of. glass. .
Saturday was-fixed-upon for they funeral
ceremonies,- which were, conducted with
appropriate order and-solemnity.- The as- -
pect of the Peansylvabia avenue forcibly:
called up . the remembrance of the scene
when Gen. Harrison's lamiented honored
corpse was borne along it to-the tome. Al
though the chief market day, and the bus
iest day of the week with all classes of ven
drs, the~bustle of businessewas hushed at
an early hour. the btreets were silent though.
full of moving masses, the stores and places
f busiuess being universally closed, gud
many of them hung with -the drapery of
mouring; Nothwithstanding that thous
ands from other cities and from the country
were aidded to the thousands of the metrop
olis, to witness the solemn rites and funeralI
pompof the occasion, yet the order and de
coum which reigned throughout were not
less gratifying thn the entire exemption of
the day from the slightest accident.
The expectation of the people now, as
at the Funeral of Gen. H arrison, thronged
the avenue with waiting multidudes hours
before the procession made its appearance.
The perfect silence observed in the gather
ed throngs, and the clouded gloom of the
sky, sensibly deepened the solemnity ofthe
At the Presidential Mansion, the Officers
of Government, civil, military, and naval,

were removed by the Rev. Mr. -Hawley,
the Rev. Dr Laurie, and the Rev. Mr.
Btler, of Georgetown. -
The procession was -then formed, and
presented an imposing coup d aik the fu

troops and volunteers in their beautiful uni

- Then-in the order annonnced in our last,
came. the bodies, each in its own hearse, 1
accompanied by carriages containing-the
pall bearers, and others, filled with the
mourning relatives of each sad victimn; next I

mourning, and then a long train of officiali

General Jackson.-It will gratify the
American people to learn with what sensi
bility the venerable patriot of the Hermi
tage has received the last tender of their
affection and approbation through the late
rote. e. Congress. The reversal, by the
representatives of the States and, the peo
ple, passed .on Judge Hall's judgment,
oademning the General as -a. vialator of
the laws and constitution at New. Orleans,
has given more heartfelt gratification to
the closing hours of the retired chief and
statesman, who, shedding his stripling
blood in the revolution, has given his whole
life to crown it with success and glory,
tan all the honors that attended his illus
trious career. In a'letter just received iL
his city he says: "1 feel truly grateful to
be people as well as to Congress for this
act.of justice to ine in my declining years.
In a later letter of the 24th of February,
miter the fical vote in the Senate, in reply
to a letter informing him of it, he says :
,The evening before I had received from
any friend, Mr. Slidell, a note enclosing
he vote on the odious amendment offered
>y Mr. Berrien, I have also received from
ny friend, Mr. Walker, a letter enclosing
he result. Please, as I cannot write to
hem, present my kind thanks to Mr. Sli
lell and Mr. Weller for this evidence of
heir continued kind remembrance of me.
y gratitude is due to all my democratie
renda for their unsolicited efforts to have
ustice done to my fame before I am called
tence; and to none more than to my friend
dr. Ingersoll, to whom I intended to write
ny acknowledgments; but writing so much
Appresses me that I have to request you to
ay to him how much I feel for his effort
n my behalf. The learning displayed in
us pamphlet oD contempts and law martial
ill render it a text-book on these subjects
or all time to come."
The circunlstances which induced the
~eeral to hasten to express the sense of
bligation which he entertains for the act
f this Congress in his behalf, and which
o greatly enhances the obligation in his
mind, will he found in the closing sentence
"If I am to judge from my present af
icion, I cannot be here at the next Con
ress. I must, long before, be in the tomb
repared for me; but I am in the hands of
just and wise Providence. When he
akes the call, I am prepared, with due
umility, to submit to his will. He has
ang spared me through a long and varie
ated life. How much longer I am to be
oer, He know., and only He."

THE~ CONTRA ST.
"I WILL NOT VIOLATE THE SABBATH."
A few years sicce, Andrew Jackson "i
ited. tie city of New Orleans, at the invi
tion of the people of that city in order to
1 present atthe laying of the foundation
tone, of thie monument erected to comme
norate the glorious victory he had achiev.'
d. He wras~received with every demon
tr ation of joy and 'gratitude. A committee
was apjinlted to wait on him, and inform
tim thatSunday had been chosen as the
lay to lay the foundation stone of the
nonument, and the troops of the city would
scort him to the ground with military
onors. The Old Hero sternly replied
'ziil not niolate the Sabbath." The
ontmittee remonstrated, they spoke of its
aing been the custom of the city to have
eir military, displays on Sunjlay;; all
ould not do-the old veteran again re
,lied,-", soUL not uiolate the Sabbath,"
d the committee yielding to his never
ne for his Maker, postponed the day.
Jompare this conduct with that of hienry
~lay, on his late political tour through
ousiana. He was received in N. Orleans
n the Sabbath day, by the millitary, with
launting banners, sounding trumpets and
eating drums; and in this style, during the
essin of church, 'he was paraded through
he streets of this great city. Nor is this
ll. Not. satisfied with desecrating the
abbath, by his vain display, Henry Clay
scoted by the military, marched past the
hurches while: engaged ijl worship and

It has been well asked what political or
commercial object will be gamned to the
United States, from the acquisition, of Or
egon,suppohingit was entirelysturre'dered
by the British Government ? It woild .be
difficult to answer this question. A:Wa
torn member of Congress might repiy, the
as our ancestors have- established a' Re
publican frame of polity on the Alanti
it is incumbent on their descendants to es
iablish Democracyon -the:Pacific, with?!
view to a political balance. Itis only n'e
cessary to extend so comprehensive asur
vey of the dities of Republicans, by em
bracing-Texas and Mexico, thus sweeping
in political vision the whole NorthAmer
can Contiset, and forming clusters of Re
publics throdghout its entire extent Thi
is a magnificent abstractioni. But there is
nothing too sublime for the Republicanis
of our dasy..
It would, however, be. a curious result
to behold-the Representatives of tile State
of Oregon participating in acts of legisla
tion, the knowledge of which would,- per
haps, reach their constituents by the time
that Congress would again assemble-at
the. Constitutional. period It might be
that a passage into the Atlantic, round
Cape Horn, would so lessenthe 'geogra
phical space between-this anticipated land
of republicanism and the political centreof
the Union, as to render it a consideration
of economy in a question of mileage.. At
all events, if Oregon is ever-brought into
our Sisterhood of States, the centre must
be brought nearer than it now is to. this
new portion of the Republican circianfer.
cence-this remote extremity of our pros
pe~tive Union, and the Seat of Govern
meat removed to a convenient travelling
distance for the Oregon Senators and Re
More Panaticsm.-We learn from an
exchange paper, that a public meeting of
the citizens of Pittsburg Pa, was held last
week for the 'purpose of interposing to save
the life of a young man sentenced to death
in North Carolina, for abetting in the es
cape of a slave to run away. Resolutions
were introduced denunciatory of the insti
tutions of slavery, and the Judge, Jury and
laws, under which the offender has been
sentenced. This is the way they interpos
ed, raving against the latos of the country,
and denouncing those who are sworn to
administer those laws with fidelity. In
Congress and out of Congress, there is a
fiend like spirit abroad against our institu
tions; a spirit which springs not from any
benevolent desire, or wish to ameliorate
the condition or that people to whom God
in his providence, has allotted -a servile
condition, but from a deep and deadly ha
tred to the South, and the prosperity to
which God bath blessed her, and besides,
this a burning anxiety to sweep away all
distinctions in society, save that* which
would be begotten, -by wealth, and family
-a noble aristocracy, which result would
sooner or later follow the entire abolition
of slavery in our country.-Crnien Jour.'
" Good old Camdenw"-We copy from
he report of Dr. Capers, the correspond

There are more worthy. citizens, not
members of the Methodist scommunion,
who subscribed liberally, to. the above
cause, and no doubt we all exult to see our
