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.

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. One who Thinks.

This popular play will be pioducedat

That '.lie play is an interesting one, none
who have ever seen u will gainsay, its
design is to impress the inllids of the
youth with the beauties of a temperance
life, and to show' tlie sad and pitiable end
of the drunkard's career. It never fails
to accomplish good. On tbe 28th of last
February tbe M. £>. It. A., placed it for
tlie first time at our Opera House, and it
was conducive of bringing many young
men within the influence of the Associa
tion. Tbe object of repeating it is a two
fold oue, to induce young men to sign the
pledge, and to endeavor to raise furniture
for their hall. None who take part re

From the Phi la. Tunes of to-day.
On Sunday afternoon a Seventeenth

vu ry much intoxicated and desp«
r "t|ily uiud-bedragtjled, as though froiu°a
of adventures ill the First waid
gu-h-rs. Out of compassion the police
man took him to the station house to
sober up. When the tun key came to

P JS ^ a a man by tbe name
lownsend, wiio was warned iu Dela

of the Delaware authorities ob allied re
plies that warranted the re enliou of
Townsend. Yesterday he was taken be
foie Magistrate Pole and given a prelim

man who is now iu custody is W. Fisk
Townsend, Clerk of the Peace of Sussex

deposit in the Farmeis' Hank, aL George
town, four thousand dollars, which he
had collected a» btalu taxes.
Several mouths ago the Legislature
adopted a resolution lequesting Governor
Hall to remove Townsend on account of
his intemperance, but the easy Governor
let up on Townsend because the latter
made abundant promises of reformation.
Ou Mardi 27 Townsend's sureties were
astonished aiul felL a gtip at their purse
strings on dis.overing that he had drawn
out of the bank every red cent of tlie
funds aud had disappeared, even selling
off his personal effects. lie was looked
for at Petersbuig, Va., his wife's foimer
home, but ineffectually. Two days af
terward he turned up iu Wilmington,
denying any intention of absconding,
aud declar.ng that he had only drawn
out the funds to make some purchases.
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.
They sent a telegram, which effec
tually blocked that move, s» that even
had he kept sober and presented his
check at the desk yesteiday it would not
have been honored. Constable Wood

was some more telegraphing done be
