Funeral of Ki-Chancellor Hates — Feel -1 ing Eulogies by Dr. Stevenson and. Jlishop Lee. The fuuerul services of the late Hon. Daniel M. Hates were announced to take ! place at his late residence, No. 1003 Dela ware Avenue, at three o'clock yesterday afternoon, but before that hour the com pany began to assemble to pay the last tiibute of respect to their deceased friend. Those present included the leading and most influential citizens of the citv, and their bearing and manner showed that each one felt as if he lnid lost a sincere and valued friend, and the community an honored and resected members. The body was laid out In the front parlor, encased in a metallic casket, of rosewood finish. The features liore maiks of suffering, but were calm in their repose, and still flowed that expres sion of swee'ness apd simplicity tlut characterized the appearance of the de ceased in his daily life. The casket was of the giass-top pattern, silver mounted, and also bore a silver p.ale, on which was the inscription : : Daniel M. Hates, : : Horn January 28, 1821,: ; Died Mai cli 28, 1870. I The floral offerings w«*ra of exquisite taste and beauty. On the ca'ket were an anchor aud two magnificent crosses, while at the head was a pillow of pure wnite flowers entwined with stnifex, and bearing Lite word "Rest," formed of dedi cate purple immortelles. A beautiful basket of lilies of the valley, Marshal O'Neil rosebuds, saffranos and violets, aud some choice cut flowers distributed around the room completed the floral tributes .Shortly afier three o'clock the services were commenced by Rev. W. J. Steven son, D. D., of Grace M. E. Church, who read that most beautiful and impressive of the Epistles of St. Paul the AjKisLle, as found in the fifteenth chapter of I. Corinthians. He then followed in an earnest and impressive discourse. He :*aid this was the voice of God in grace. He hits spoken in this sudden death, and how may I dure to break the solemn stillness. How feeble are human utter ances in an hour like this. As the mai quis Lafayette on his last visit to tills country, said to an old comrade whom he met alter years of parting, "I lemem hcr," so the most fitting and expressive tribute of those now assembled here would bo to gather around the cofliu of our deceased friend, and clasping bunds each say to the other, "I remember." Hut though there would be no response, lie still lives and still remembers. As it has been said by the greatest master of the human pa sions the world ever produced "Praising what is lost makes remembrance dear," aud us is written in the Word of God, "Out of the abunuance of the heart the mouth Speakern," I b«g you to answer why is it that the remem brance of our departed friend is so pre cious? What was it iu his life and char acter that makes lus memory so dear? In his death we have lost one who was distinguished for his gifts and graces, eiuineut for his talents and virtues, who was grandly himself, aud one whose place cannot be filled. 1 i einem Lut, and you remember, hut who can separate the remembrances? I can pronounce his eulogy iu the briefest form, for there is no room for enlargement. His charac ter was as ]Hiifeet in Its symmetrical projetions, as his life was complete in its relations to God and man. If I was to erect a beautiful marble pillar as em blematical of his perfect life and charac ter, on Its base 1 would inscribe "gen tleness," on its cap "wisdom," and on its shaft, "purity." For be was gentle in manners, wise in judgment, and pure iu bean, ii is given to genlieiuhs to be lov«d; to wisdom to # be lionortd and obeyed ; hut ah I " blessed are the pure in heart, for they sliull see God! The sp aker then proceed to describe bis pastoral relations with the deceased, and ins iHTsoiml acquaintance, which ex tended ovei a p< His Christian character wi an almost const ant associât ion church. He grew up with it, it can almost be said, his connection covcr.ng a period of neatly fitly years. He was faithful in the discharge of all his church duties, and he ever exemplified his faith to the outside world. Christian law yer, as given in his eulogy upon the late Samuel M. Harrington, will be remembered by all who heard it. It was, in truth, given to him, as to few men, to jnissess tii« ideal And to fulfill it in Ins own existence. He was a Chris tian, so he lived, aud he died as he lived. And when lie was a>ked, when he laid in his last sickuess, If there w as anything to be done, lie said there was nothing; all had been done and be w as ready to go. Death to him was nothing hut gain. It may be said lie died far aw ay from home and friends, aud alone. No; not alone, for God was with him. "Lo, 1 am witli you always, even to the end of the world," is the promise of the Lord." God was there, and sate in the aims of Jesus he went home to rest in the besom of the Lord. Let us remember that lie was man's friend, our friend, the friend of God. And by and by we shall all gather to gether in a fellowship that shall be for ever with the Lord. At the conclusion of his remarks, of which the above is but a brief sy nopsis, Dr. Stevenson offered a fervent and af tried of sixteen year's. formed by iih tlie U portraiture of the feetiug prayer. lit. li«v. Bishop Lee, followed in a brief address. Surety, be said, could be added to such a poitraiture of our deceased friend, tlie truth of which is acknowledged by every hea t. 1 can on ly add my tribute, and utter a sincere amen to what >ou have already heard. Who doi*s not feel that a void has been loss sustained that cannot be >thiiii> made and remedied. The wealth ol a community do'ts not consist in its riches and its great industries, but in its moral tone, its pre vailing opinion of rectitude, gentleness and honor to God. The man who elevates the moral tone of tlie community and elevates commands its confidence, afe his iellow-ruan, and adds to the wealth ot the city thousands and millions more than can bo computed by arithmetical methods. Who can compute the value of a man with an unsullied record, whose professional life has been an ornament, Ids domestic relations too sacred to be the subject of eulogy? Such men may be removed, but death has no dominion over them. They not only live with God,but live here in the memory and|influence of their fellow men; for they "being dead, yet speaketli." "The path of the just is as the shining light, which sliineth more and more toward die end." This portraiture is verv applicable to our de ceased friend. He was a man of intellect, of pure character, which maturing from day to day, caused his life to glow more and more beautiful towards the end. His light was shining, his clia>acter be came more attractive and winning, his influence more and more felt. Hut his perfect day is not for our vision. Hut who can doubt that his beauty of life and character but foreshadow tbe splendors of that glorious day. Only faith can realize aud hope anticipa'e the future of a character that was so perfect here. The exercises ended with a prayer by Hisliop Lee, and shortly afterwards the remains were conveyed to the hearse and taken to the Wilmington & Hrandywiue Cemeteiy, where they were interred. The pall-bearers were Chief Justice r 0inegys, Hull. Thus. F. Hay aid, Hon. E. ( ». Hia iford, J. Taylor G.tuse, Charles H. Lore, Col. II. fS. McC'oinb, Geo. W. "Sparks and Win. C. bpruance. For the Gazette. Mit. Edituu:—I f you will allow me a little space in your paper, I will Bay something about the new Court-house. Wilmington has won at la*t after a forty years' struggle to have it removed to this place. The next important thing is : Where ought it to be built ? The City Council prematurely offered the county a part or all of the square at Tenth and Market. If the Levy Court accept, I hope they will make them give the whole square. While this may be a very good place to locate the Temple of Justice, yet 1 am satisfied we have a better place, though it may uot bd so convenient at present, but inconvenience, in most cases, soon regulate itself. 1 mean the square on Eighth street between Frank lin and Broome. No belter place than this could be found anywhere, and at present it is but of little use, if any, to the city. Now for ti e advantages. I lie property around there is unimproved and if we make tins the county seat, the IHiople whoowu real estate around it will soon begin to improve ; and in a few years tbe improvements will pay enough tax io meet the interest on tbe money it will cost the city, and start business and give employment to the working class of community, and the inconvenience will soon be Kst sight of. Then we will soon have a branch railroad from. tl;e Avenue up Franklin, by the Court-house to Front street and then down to the depot ; and even now it is only a short walk to tbe city railroad. Mr. Editor, 1 will now return to the old basin projierty, that is worth from $30,000 to $40,000, and it ought to be sold and the proceeds applied to tbe Water Department, for we are in need of money there ail the time. 1 think if the Council would look at this matter in a business way they will see that for the go#d of the city, they have made a mistake in their selection. For the money that the bAsin square would bring would pay for opeuiug an Avenue on the south tide of the race from which we re ceive our supply of water, and protect the water by carrying off tbe surface refuse and drainage of the city above, which is becoming a very serious matter. Tbe Hoard of Health has been complain ing of it for a long time, and this im provement, if done, would give a nice front for buildings, and would soon pay for itself by increase of taxes. I undeistaiid that tbe Levy Court is going to pay us a visit in a few «lays, aud see lor themselves where the best place is to make said improvement. I think the Levy Conn, while 1 suppose they are going to build, are acting wisely not to be in too much of a hurry, for these tilings don't occur veiy often and when these new buildings are put up they will be for all time to come. For one I am very much opposed to using the basin propeity, and 1 am in favor of tbe other, fot* it will improve the city and that will >■'■1-0- tlie county; anJ 1 hope Levy Court, as a disinterested part>, wjll select the best place for both city and county.

During the past mouth there were thirty-two building permits issued at the Survey Department.

The county authorities meanwhile got wind of tbe fact that Townsend's inten tion was to draw upon the Corn Ex> change Hank,Philadelphia, for the $4,000.
