PREPARATIONS FOR THE PEA BODY FUNERAL. The Portland correspondent of the Bos ton Advertiser furnishes that paper with an account of the preparations made in that city to receive the remains of Mr. Pea body, from which we copy. Upon entering the city hall one is utterly amazed at the change that has been wrought in its appearance within the .past two weeks.— Two weeks ago everything connected with it was bright and cheerful, but now it seems as if the very wood of which it is made were sharing in the general sorrow. The beauti tilul proportions of the hall, the dim flicker ing light which is shed out upon the darkness from the burners here and there, and the rich, heavy festoons of white and black, almoat ob scuring from the view the sides and ceiling of the large hall, produce an effect which, fur sombre grandeur, probably surpasses any thing of a similar character which hat ever been attempted in this country. From the ceiling overhead depend heavy festoons of black aipacca completely covering the white ceiling, and gracefully looped at the sides ot the hall in such a manner as to give an ap pearance of great weight. There are in ad dition to these, eight heavy festoons of white bung in the same manner. At the centre of tho ceiling from which all these festoons bang in graceful folds is placed an elegant white rosette. The walls are draped in black. The fronts of the galleries are hung with black broadcloth tastefully plaited. Imbedded in the broadcloth are here and there small glittering stars. These festoons arc caught up, near the heads of the pillars supporting the galleries, by silver cords hanging from wreaths of immortelles, they being surmounted with elegant plumes. The pillars supporting the galleries are also draped, and the walls under the galleries are hung with festoons of black broadcloth formed into bats surmounted alternately with a wreath and cross of immortelles. The windows, twelve in number, are wholly darkened. They are heavily draped in Gothic style, with a white background. Above each window is a large white rosette, and in the centre is placed a black rosette. Tlie wall at the head of the hall is especial ly noticeable for the two coats of arms, one British and the other American, elegantly finished in gilt. Under the English is this inscription. “Nisi utile est quo.! tacimus, stultu est gloria.” Under the American coat of arms are the worui, “l’ulliiruin cst lienefacere Beipublica.” Between these decorations and higher upon the wall is a monogram composed of the let ters “G. I*.” illuminated by one hundred jets of gas. each giving a small bright light and producing a very wonderful effect in this oth erwise darkened part of the hall. Among the inscriptions upon the front of the galleries are the following:— “Tbmi, too, whose deeds bankrupt a nation's gratitude.” “Kind hearts arc more than coronets.” "llut the greatest of these is charity.” “Lay up tor yourselves treasures in heaven.” At the foot of the hall are escutcheons, up on which are inscribed :— "Luxuria ejus lienefacere." "Virtus sola nobilltat.” Elegant and impressive as the hall itself is, tlie catafalque upon which will be placed the remains of Mr. I’eubody is certainly the most observed of all. It stands at the head of the hall, in front of and touching what is usually used as a speaker's platform. The dais is twenty-four feet by eighteen. There are two steps covered with black. The bier itself is fifteen feet by ten and is about four feet high from the upper step. It is richly dressed in black broadcloth, bordered with black velvet, ornamented witli heavy silver fringe. The centre of the canopy is twenty-five feet from the base. Upon the canopy are clegnnt sil ver holders and in each a heavy black plume. At the corners heavy festoons are arranged, being aught up by crape bands to be setwitli flowers when the work is fully completed.— Upon the dais are twelve massive silvered candlesticks from which the flickering gas completes the illumination and would almost make one believe that so modern a light as gas had not been employed upon this occa sion. When tlie burial casket is placed upon the bier and natural flowers are scattered along the dais with wreaths of the same appropri ately arranged here and there, the effect in the dimly-lighted ball will be imposing. The en trance to the hall will in due time be tasteful ly draped and X'ortland people need not feel that everything possible has not been done by them and by tlie State authorities to show that they combine in this display a profound re spect for the memory of tlie great philanthro pist and a sincere appreciation of the compli ment paid in selecting tills as the seaport to receive her Britisli Majesty’s vessels of war which are bringing across the ocean the only man whom the two nations have ever united to mourn. My description of tlie preparations, imper fect as it must be, would bc'incomplete did I fail to mention the elegant funeral tar which lias been constructed at the expense of the State under tlie supervision of Colonel John M. Brown of the Governor’s staff. The car is twenty-four feet long, seven feet wide, five feet seven inches from the ground to the first platform. The second platform, which is to bear tlie bier, is raised slightly above tlie first, and is seven feet long and three feet wide. The drapery is mostly of black broadcloth, bordered with white alpaeca around the bot tom. covered with heavy festoons of black velvet with silver fringe, with white crape boa s at the corner. At each corner of the body is an elegant silver holder supporting a heavy black plume with white top. The dais is covered with black velvet with festoons held up by silver cords. The canopy, also of black, lias a graceful sweep from the centre post to the corners and sides, and is surmount ed by a large American eagle bearing in his beak ribbons of black and white. This ear, which is of itself elegant and imposing, is to be drawn by six milk white steeds, each led by a man bearing the usual emblems of mourn ing. The car, preceded by the military es cort will present a more ini|Hising spectacle than lias ever yet been witnessed in the quiet streets of Portland. BILLUKBTAILB.
