It will be remembered that upon the announce

as far as the newe was spread, during the night of

country the ensuing day. ' , '
A nation lay hushed in the silence of night,
All peacefully, calmly repoaing blast.
When aaad, mournful sound hastened by on the
A tale of deep sorrow disclosing.
'Twaa the dirge ef Ue dead, as it passed on the air,
O'er the laud like a deluge waa rolling:
Twas a dark-boding peal, like the wail of despair

Thro' the darkness and gloom, that peal echoed on,
Ae it hastened to tell the aad story t
That a nation waa humbled, and shorn of ita pride.
And bereft of the star of its glory; . .
To tell that the Angel of Death had just come,
With ilscold, icy hands to dissever.
A Chieftain and Ruler, Protector and Friend,
From hie laud aad hie people, forever.
Hew heavy ar-d aad were all hearts, as that sound
On the wines of the midnight was stealing:
Aa the tones of that bell and the tidings of death
Over bill-top and valley were pealing.
It chimed all that night its alow requiem lays, ,
Nor ceased its sad dirge on the morrow; .
But on ever on o'er that death-stricken land,
It sped with ita message of sorrow. .
Then a nation bow'd down as it mournfully heard,
What the Angel of Death had just done;
And Columbia wept, ae she stood by the bier.

The Dream of a Dying Girl. ;; "
"Do you know Mon Fere," said the child,
that I have had another such a beautiful
dream ? .' I have been in heaven. Oh! but
reallv in heaven ! I thought I saw the sun as
it is, without the mist of mystery, it wears to
us; and when I knelt down to pray to it, (it
was so very beautiful!) a voice said, 'it is in
deed beantiful, for it is the eye of God, but
it is not God, so. do not pray to it,, but go on;
so I went , on, on on, cleaving as i went
through such a soft resistance of Jight. and
heat, and I seemed to grow bright too, aud
expand with it; when presently I heard a
great rusuing ot tne angers wings, out so iouu
and clear, that it seemed as if all the space
was filled, with it, and the sound was music as
I had never heard before. And the same
voice said, 'this in heaven; ": hd is here.' I
trembled verv much, but I could not see God ;
and I thought' the angels veilod their faces
with the clouds because tliey ooum. l Knew
that, though I could not see God, He could
see me. and I ft-It that I must pray, or that
I could not stay in heaven ! 1 he same voice
asain said pray, and I knelt down aloof from
the rest: tor my prayer was ior you, momer;
and wanted none but bod to near it; and
though I did not pray above the beating of
of mv heart, suddenly tne great rusningot tne
ane-el's wintis died away like the echoes of
distant music, and the only sounds I heard dis
tinct and clear were those ot my own low pray
er, which like to the lengthened cadences of a
flute, made the silver vapors vibrate, which
contained God's invisible throne ; and when I
had done my praying an awful silence, like
a great shadow fell on heaven, and I trembled
exceedingly, for I thought the God was angry
at what I "asked. But as I hid my face for
fear, the music and the light returned, and
when, I raised my head, the same voice said.
'Child, since it is" for thy mother thou dst
pray, address thy prayer to God the son: for
when on earth, he saw that woman's sins were
light compared with those of men, and ever
punished below by such deep sorrow, that He
pitied them on earth, and does so in heaven."
Oh ! then I prayed again, saying. Blessed Lord,
if indeed the sins of the parents be visited on
me and forgive her!" When 'I had uttered
this prayer, I felt hand laid upon my head,
and some of the light that was around seemed
to steal into and lift up my heart, as a voice
but not the same voice as before, but one glo
rious, yet soft, like some all radiant star, flitt
ing athwart the violet twilight of a summer's
night, said, "leave the prayer with mk, and I
will account with thee for it when thou comest
into my kingdom !' There now mother, do not
err, for I feel sure whatever yours are, God
will forgive them even though yours may be
more than mine, as you are older than me.
Extract from the reers Daughter.
Thrilling Incident. -
- On Saturday last a middle aged man living
on JSavy Island, started in a small canoe, with
hu son, a lad ot some twelve years old, tor
Chippewa. The distance is short less than
a mile, we snouia say, ana aitaougu tne cur
rent of the rivers is quite rapid, the trip is not
attended with any hazard, if the boat is man
aged with- ordinary skill - But in this case,
the man was very drunk, ana only embarrass
ed the boy, so the boat drifted below the
mouth of the creek before the lad could ap
proach the r shore. Seeing the impossibility
of reaching the Canada shore, the boy turned
her towards the head of Goat Island paddling
with surprising strength and dexterity, his fa
ther barely steering, without rendering him
any efficient aid.. The boat was swept down
with frightful velocity, but the boy struggled
most perseveringiy, anu when she was urawn
into the rapids, he bad propelled her so far
across the Canada channel as to direct her
course between the middle and inside Sister
the little island lying outside of Goat Island,
near the upper end. There is a fall of some
fifteen or twenty feet just above the little islets,
extending nearly accross the Canada or main
channel of the river. Mortal aid could not
have availed the poor boy and bis father, if
the boat baa pitched over this lull, incy
must certainly have gone over the great Fall,
which man has never passed alive. Aware
of the imminent, peril as the boat was on the
verge of the small precipice, the lad sprang in
to the water, drawing his father after him,
and maintaining an upright position with great
difficulty,, upheld his helpless parent until
they were rescued ' by -the people from the
village at the Falls, who had collected in large
numbers on the shore opposite to the point
where the boat was abondoned. ' The boat
was dashed te pieces ia passing . tbs rapids,
and the fragment were carried -over the Falls
before the man ana his ion were taken to toe
land. ', " -
" : Proceedings in Congress.
The proceedings in Congress upon the de
cease of the President, are of great interest
We have not room for much of thorn to day.
We giro below the remarks of Mr. Winthrop
and Mr.. Marshall, in the House. Speeches
were also made by Messrs. Mclane. Baker, Bay
ly, Hilliard, and John A King. We shall en
deavor to give the- proceedings in the Senate
to-morrow : - Buff. Com.
Mr. Winthrop rose to second the resolutions,
and proceeded as follows:- -
It would not be easily excused,. Mr. Speak-'
er, by those whom I represent in this hall, if
there were no Massachusetts voice to respond
to the eulogy which has been pronounced by
Louisiana upon her illustrious and "lamented
son. Indeed, neither my personal feelings nor
my political relations to the living or to the
dead, would permit me to' remain altogether
silent on this occasion. And yet, sir, I confess
I know not how to say any thing satisfactory
to myself or suitable to the circumstances of
The event .which has just , been officially
announced, has come upon us so suddenly
has so overwhelmed us with mingled emotions
of surprise and sadness that the ordinary
forms, of expression seem to lose their signifi
cance, and one would tain bow his bead to the
blow in silence, until its tirst shock bas m some
degree passed away.
Certainly, sir, no one can fail to realize that
a most momentous and mysterious Providence
has been manifested in our midst At a mo
ment when, more than almost ever before in
our history, the destinies of our country seem
ed, to all human sight, to be inseparably as
sociated with the character and conduct of its
Chief Executive Magistrate, that Magistrate
has been summoned from his post by the on
ly messenger whose mandates he might not
have defied, and has been withdrawn forever
from the sphere of humaii existence!
There are those of us,-1 need not say, sir,
who had looked to him with affection and rev
erence as our chosen leador and guide, in the
difficulties and perplexities by which we are
surrounded. There are those of us who had
relied confidently on him, as -upon no other
man, to uphold. the constitution and maintain
the union of the country in that future upon
which "clouds and darkness" may well be
said to rest "And, as we now behold him,
borne away by the hand of God from our
sight in the very hour of peril, we can hardly,
repress the exclamation, which was applied to
the departing prophet of old : "My father, my
father! the chariot of Israel.and the horseman
Let me not. even seem to imply, however,
that the death of General Tatxoh is anything
less than a national loss. There may be, and
we know there is, in this event.' a privileged
and pre-eminent grief for his immediate fami
ly and relatives, to which we can only offer
the assurance of our heart felt sympathy.
There is, too, a peculiar sorrow for his politi
cal friends- and supporters, which we would
not affect to conceal. But the whole people
of the United States will feel and bear witness,
when they receive these melancholy tidings,
that they hare been called to sustain a most
afflicting national bereavment.
I hazard nothing, sir, in saying that the roll
of our Chief Magistrates, since 1789 illustrious
as it is, presents tne name of no man who has
enjoyed a higher reputation with his cotempo
raries, or who will enjoy a higher reputation
with posterity than Zachary Taylor, for some
of the bt st and noblest qualities that adorn
our nature. 1
His indumintable courage, his unimpeacha
ble honesty, his Spartan simplicity and sagac
ity, his frankness, kindness,, moderation, and
magnanimnity, his fidelity to bis friends, his
generosity and humanity to his enemies, the
purity of his private life, the patriotism of his
public principles, will never cease to be cher
ished in the grateful rememberance of all just
men and all true hearted Americans.
" As a Soldier and a General, his fame is as
sociated with some of the proudest and most
thrilling scenes of our military history. He
may be literally said to have conquered ev
ery enemy he has met, save only that last en
emy to which we must all, in turn, surrender.
" As a civilian and statesman, during the brief
period in which he be has been permitted to
enjoy the pre-eminent honors which a grate
ful country had awarded him; he has given
proof of a devotion to duty, of an attachment
to the constitution and the Union, of a patri
otic desire to maintain the peace of our coun
try, which no trials or temptations could shake.
He has borne his faculties meeklv, but hrmly.
He has been "clear in his great office." ' He
has known no local partialities or prejudices,
but has proved himself capable of embracing
his whole country m tne comprehensive nnec
Hons and regards ot a large and generous
heart - - ; -
But he has fallen almost at the thresh-
hold of his civil career, and at a moment when
some of us was looking to him to render ser
vice to the country which we thought no oth
er man could perform. Certainlv sir, he
has died too soon for every bodv but himself.
We can hardly find it in our hearts to repine,
that the good old man has gone to his rest
We cannot grudge the repose in which' the
brave old soldier sleeps. His part in life has
been long and faithfully performed. Inliisown
last words, "he had always done Ins duty, and
was not afraid to die." But our regrets for
ourselves and for our country - are deep and
unfeitmed. . .. . . - .
- Sir, it was a tit and beautiful circumstance
in the close of such a career, that his last offi
cial appearance was at the celebration of the
birthday of our national Independence, and
more especially ns an act of homage to the
memory of him whose example he had ever
revered and followed, and who, as he himsolf
so well said "was by so many titles the father
of his country."
And now, Mr. Speaker, let us hope that
this event may teach us all how vain is our re
liance upon any arm .of flesh and may impress
us with a solemn sense of our national ss well
as individual dependence on a Power higher
than human. : Let us rememder; sir, that "the
Lord is king, be the people never so impatient ;
that he sitteth between the cherubim, be the
earth never so unquiet." Let us in lan
guage which is now hallowed to us, as having
been the closing; and crowning sentiment of
the brief but admirable iaaugural address with
which our illustrious friend opened his presi
dential term, hardly more than a year ago,
and which is ray privilege to read at this mo
ment from tie very eopy from which it was
originally read by himself to the American
rjec-rile on the 4th day of March 1849 let 1.
in lancruacre in which- "he, being dead, yet
st-esketh" "Let us invoke a continuance of
the same Protecting Care which has led us
from small beginnings to the position we this
day occupy ; and let us seek to deserve that
continunce by prudence and moderation in
our councils; by well-directed attempts to as
suage the bitterness which too often marks un
avoidable differences of opinion ; by the pro
mulgation and practice of just and liberal prin
ciples; and by an enlarged patriotism, which
shall acknowledge no limits but those of our
own wide-spread republic."
Mr. Marshall said : . '
Mr. Speaker: Silence is the eloquence of
woe, and most appropriate sign of submission
to Him whose inscrutable decree afflicts the
people. - - . .
Were the emotions of my own bosom at
this moment the accepted counsellors of my
action, content to mingle mine with the na
tion's tears, I should permit this solemn occas
ion to pass without the obtrnsion of a single
remark. But custom and the known relations
I held to the late President of the United
States, induce roe to express here the profund
sensibility with which intelligence of his la
mented death will be received by the Com
monwealth of Kentucky. In no quarter of
our country will this blow fall with more crush
ing force than upon the district I represent
There are the graves of his parents the hab
itations of his kindred the surviving associa
tions of his youth the special friends of his
matured manhood the companions of- his
military adventures and the most numerous
branches of his family connexion. There bis
name was a tower of strength, as his fame
was the pride of the people.
I have not arisen to dwell upon his exploits,
or to recount his many virtues. These can
derive no additional lustre from the voice of
exaggerated eulogy. Comparison between
Zachary Taylor aad celebrated ancients, il
lustrous in life or death, will neither diminish
nor increase bis claim to the admiration of
mankind. His character was formed on no
Dre-existing model.' Reared amidst the soli
tudes of a western wildereess, his principles
were fashioned by the precepts of the pioneer,
and his career has vindicated their Christiani
ty, their wisdom, and their patriotism. The
column is complete. Omniscience has with
drawn the workman. Time and earth have
but "the sign and token" of the great original

At the honored urn which holds the re

. Grace Greenwood. .
During the session of the Convention, when
the crowded state of our columns prevented
the insertion of many things; we cut out of
the National lira, the following complimenta
ry notice of Gen. Taylor, by that elegant and
DODular writer, Grace . Greenwood, whose
strong anti-slavery sympathies will free her at
least, from the charge of any previously con
We publish it now. at this time of universal
mourning through the land, when the repre
esetatives of the nation, are following to the
tomb, the remains of the illustrious deceased,
in order to show what universal esteem the per
sonal qualities of the late President were held
by every one who approached him. , The open
hearted frankness of manner here described,
was the peculiar characteristic of many of our
great men in the earlier days of the Republic,
whose memories are so dear to the hearts of
the American people. ' O. S. Jour. -
;,t Washington, June 20, 1850, ,
Gentlemen : I believe that my visit to the
President, is next in order. As the levees are
now overr I made a morning call accompanied
by the member from my native district, Mr.
Gott, of New York. We passed through the
East Room," a truly magnificent apartment,
and into the "Blue Room," where the reeptions
take place. This apartment is very hand
somely furnished, but the profusion of gilding
everywhere struck me as having rather a gar
ish effect What I most admired were some
of the vases disposed about the room. 'These
were very beautiful. We were soon joined
by General Taylor, who came in with a pleas
ant, cordial manner, and with whom I at once
fell into an easy and agreeable chat. I was
entirely delighted with the old hero. In the
first place, he is far better looking than I had
expected to see him, from all the hard-lined
dasuerreotvpes, stiff lithographs, and rascally
wood cuts, which had met my eye. He looks
younger, slighter, more elegant and agreeable
every way.-. His manner and impression. are
altogether, open and honest dignified and
soldierly ;"yet simple in the extreme.. His
voice is pheasant, his smile winning, his eye
clear; earn est and withal,' benevolent I like
and honor bim for his manly uprightness,
most heartily, and when I visit the White
House, four years lienceI sincerely hope be
mav be at home to receive me. ' '' .'
An Army of Monkeys A hovel $us-
; - -"-tension Bridge. - .
They are coming towards the bridge ; they
will likely cross by the rock yonder,' observed
RaouL , ;
"How swim it ?' I asked. 'It is a torrent
Oh, no!" answered the Frenchman: 'mon
keys would rather go into fire than water.
If they cannot leap the stream they will bridge
it-' . ,
- 'Bridge it! and how?' ".'-''-
Stop a moment, Captain you shall see.'
The half human voices now sounded nearer,
and we could perceive that the animals were
approaching the spot where we lay. Presently
they appeared upon the opposite back, head
ed by an old grey chieftain, and officered like
so many soldiers. They were, as Raoul
staled, of the comadreja, or ring-tailed tribe.
One an aid-de-camp, or chief pioneer, per
haps ran out upon the projecting rock, and,
after looking accross the stream as if calcu
lating the distance scampered back and ap
peared to communicate with the leader.
This produced a movement in the troop. Com
mands were isued, and fatigue parties were
detailed and marched to . the front Mean
while several of the caraadrejas engineers,
no doubt ran along the bank, examining the
trees on both sides of the arrogo.
At length they all collected around a tail
cotton wood, that grew over the narrowest
part of the stream, and twenty or thirty of
them scampered up its trunk. On reaching a
high point, the foremost a strong fellow ran
out upon a limb and taking several turns of
this tail around it, slipped off and hung his head
downwards. The next on the limb, also a
stout one climbed down the body of the first
and whipped his tail tightly around the neck
and fore arm of the latter, dropped off in turn
and hung head down. The third repeated
this manaeuvre upon the second and the
fourth upon the third, and so on, until the
last one upon the string rested his forepaws
on the ground.
The living chain now commenced swinging
backwards and forwards, like the pendulum
of a clock. The motion was slight at first, but
gradually increased, the lowermost monkey
striking his hands violcnty on the earth as he
passed the tangent and oscillating curve, sev

This continued until the monkey at the end
of the chain was thrown among the branches
of a tree on the opposite bank. Here after
two or three vibrations, he clutched a limb
and held fast. This movement was executed
adroitly, just at the culminating point of the
oscillation, in order to save the intermediate
links from the violence of a too sudden jerk!
The chain was now fast at both ends, form
ing a complete suspension bridge, over which
the whole troop, to the number of four or live
hundred, passed with the rapidly of the light.
It was one of the most comical sights I ever
beheld, to witness the quizzical expression of
countenances along that living chain I
The troope was now on the other side, but
how were the animals forming the bridge to
get themselves over? This was the question
which suggested itself Manifestly, by num
ber one letting go hit tail. But then the
point d'appai on the other side was much
lower down, and number one,witb half a dozen
of his neighbors, would be dashed against the
opposite bank, or soused into the water.
Here then was a problem, and we -waited
with some curiosity for its solution. : It was
soon solved. A monkey was . now. seen at
taching his tail to the lowest on the bridge
another, girded him in a similiar manner, and
another, and so on, until a dozen more added
to the string. Those cast were all powerful fel

Then a scream from the last monkey of the
new formation warned the tail end that all
were ready ; and the next moment the whole
chain was swung over and landed safely on the
opposite bank. I be lowermost links now
dropped, off like a melting candle, while the
higher ones leaped to the branches and came
down by the trunk. - The whole troop then

"Enter, the teacher and two trustees the

"One. the trustees standing erect thus intro

"Boys, you come here ' to learn, and the
teacher is employed to teach you ; hence it is
your business to obey him, as well as it is your
privilege and his duty to teacn you. You
should always bear this in mind. , You must
obey the teacher, and it is his business to pre
serve order and secure obedience." - Sinks.-

I come here to teach, as one of the trustees
has said.-. You will find me disposed, to pun

contains an account of an injury to the brain
and recovery bf the man, which draws consid
erably upon one's faith to credit. ; The story
as condensed by the Philadelphia Ledger is,
that the person injured was engaged in blast
ing, and was tamping in the charge, when
it exploded, and the tamping iron, three feet
seven inches in length, and on inch and
quarter in diameter, weighing thirteen and
quarter pounds, passed through his left cheek,
just behind and below the "mouth, ascended
into the brain behind the left eye, passed from
the skull, which it shattered and raised up
"like an Inverted funnel,"' for the distance of
about two inches in every direction around the
wound, flew through the air, and was picked
up by the workmen, "covered with blood and
brains, several rods behind where he stood.
The man was placed in a cart and was car
ried three quarters of a mile. He got out of
the cart himself, walked up stairs, and in ten
weeks was nearly well, and though he lost a
