The remains of eighty South Carolinians, who
fell upon ihe bloody field of Gettysburg; were yes?
terday :reinterretl _t Magnolia Cern . -ur. The prep?
arations which have been in progress for the past
week culminated in the solemn ceremonies
around the graves, and.seldom have we seen a
more impressive spectacle than wa3 exhibited
yesterday on that hallowed square. The memo?
ries of ?he past, which seem of late to have been
smothered up by our present trouble*: were once
more awakened, and few who stood upon that
solem? ground who did not feel the influence pro?
duced by them. The long row of freshly made
graves spoke louder than trumpets, and the cause
for which they died was Invested with a brighter
glory by the immensity of their sacrifice. They
died upon thc soil of an enemy, and yesterday
saw the latest prayer of many of them granted,
that they should sleep their long last steep In the
bosom or their native Carolina. The wives,
mothers and sisters who sent them rorth to bat?
tle remembered these dying words, and after a
long Interval of untiring energy and labor In the
great aad hallowed cause, they have fulfllled their
wishes. All honor to the lautes who have assisted
In this sacred work.
Th: tr gb.' morning was propitious to a celc
,bra lon of ic 2 kind, and at an early hour, masses
or evergreen 1, beautirul crosses and chaplets, and
lovely bouquets of flowers were to be seen borne
about the streets. The extensive decorations in
the Hioernian Hall, from the late lair or the Sis?
ters or Mercy, were taken down to lorin material
for the decorations, and various wagons, with
their ve rnal freight, variegated with baskets of
flowers, could be seen travel-.ng the city. At 2
o'clock, by general conseut, the leading establish?
ments on our prlucipal streets were closed, apd
the population turned odt en masse, to do honer
to the remains of the fallen heroes. The street
cars on the up trips were Jammed; everybody was
hurry itg to the railroad depots.
The trains on the South carolina and Northeast?
ern Railroads Were much lerner than usual. On
one tri.ln alone there we^-thirteen passenger
cars, at.d every oue full. Dp to the mitote that
the last train left tbedepoi, ladles and gentlemen,
and the inevitable jmalt l- ays, could be sean .'mr.
rying up, but at last ahe whistle blew, and the
long* train or tars nove J Steadily up to the Forks
of the Fioad.
Alighting here, the ..-?Ito-s walked up the ave?
nue, aud were soon a: ts?? burial grotfnd of thc
Confederate dead. In addition to thc railroad
trains, vast numbers of impromptu vehicles were
plying along thc road?, and over 6000 persons
must have beeu upon the grounds. The road irom
the gate 01 the cemetery, within thc grounds, was
thronged with vehicles, and the vast concourse of
people .vevo densely crowded around the speaking
stand, at .ne northeast corner of the Confederate

Mr. Capers then offered the following prayer:
O ! Taou grear, good and merciful God-Thou

and grace In Christ Jesus our Lord, to Thee we
bring cur humble tribute of praise and thanks?

mains of the belove l and honored dead, who
were nat atone bouud to us by the strong ties ol
kindred and affection, but to whom we owe
a deo debt of gratitude, for these sleep?
ing patriots shed their blood in our do?
rene;. And whilst we pla".e up'in their graves
memorial garlands or love, affection and grati?
tude, ?ut Thou, Heavenly b.'titer, engrave upon
our heurts the remembrance ol their virtues, and
teach cs to emulate meir patriotic love of coun?
try? Impress upon our hearts, everlasting Uod,
the solemn lesson of mortality here taught us,
and, whilst we linger around Ute hallowed
mounds under which our dead heroes Ile, let us
look btyond-above, and prepare, by lives ol inno?
cence, virtue, benevolence and faith, to join our
departed ones iu thai land wnere sorrows are

and the orphan, and provide ror their necessities.
And we beseech The* look In- mercy upon pur

we groan; let wisdom guide our counsels, mit!
prosperity smile .wain upon our land. Finally,
may Thy holy reiiaton be widely diflused. until
the while earth be flited with Thy glory. In the

Husl;ed he Hie clamor or the mar ;
Stided as when strick-eii peoples pray :
For through a Lilien nations heart
Wt bring our herds' dust to day;
Lc-t all her sons a Sabbath keen
In Meir proud City by the Sea,
And come, whoever loves<.! weep
Tin; broketi lance or Chivalry.
Come Honor wich iU> diutcd shield,
Anl Valor with thy stn vero 1 glaive ;
Aud from the sod where Faith hath kneeled,
Rise Justice from her trampled grave t
And come, O dove-eyed Peace : who long
Fro m this, ou1- desolate land, hath strayed.
And "t ns dream that Hate at.d Wrong
Wi .h these our brothvr.v bones relaid!
Twice Amarant t for the noble dead,
Nor be ?he victor-leaf forgot.
And, while the paning prayer ls said,
Strew Heart's Ease and Forget-me-not.
For thes" no sculptured shaft shad risc,
Nor stouei urn i-nibl ?cou them ;
But nobbing waves and watling skies
Will sound i ht tr flt iug requiem.
And, year by year, a form uusi-en
Mull deck the turf we heap io day,
To keep i heir fadeless memories green,
Who fell, In vain, Tor liberty.
So guard O God I this -acred dust,
Winch we wi;h pravers and tears would bless.
And be Thon still tin- Widow's trust,
Arad Father of the Fatherless.

Our reporter len as several dusky politicians
were discussing, In a very excited manner, whicu
of the speakers should be pnt ont of the door.
DEATH OP DR. BENJAMIN JENKINS.-We learn
from the Southern Christian Advocate, that Dr.
Jenkins died at Shanghai, China, March 13, his
age being about ?6 years. Dr. J. was well known
lu Charleston, having resided hera a number of
years, prior to his removal to. China. He was
at one time employed in the printing office or the
Charleston courier, then for six yeirs published
the Advocate until, in 1843, he went as a mission?
ary to China. He severed his connection with
the board, however, some years- ago, and became
attached to the United States Consulate, where he
rendered valuable service by his great linguistic
proficiency. Dr. Jenkins was a self-made man;
In lils earlier years a hard student, with a special
predilection for languages. Before he went to
China, he bad acquired some knowledge of some
eight or ten different languages, and during his
stay in the East he added largely to his store in
'this direction, and used lils leisure in laying open
the literary treasures the heathen Chinee to
our Inquiring Occidental gaze.
