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.
