PHILADELPHIA, March 10, 1855.
Dt M.i To-day we havo oommittJ to Hie
asvth all that wai mortal of that true friend of
Freedom, Cruet M. BuaLtioif, one of the brothers
(a that gifted family, whose name ha become in
separably eunnected with the Anti-Slavery cause
im America, and therefore with the life of the world
Mr. Di'RLtiait'i health has been Impaired for
out time past, and in January he left the citj for
'toe quiet home of dear friends in the country,
about thirty miles distant, hoping much from ro
oee. But his di sense being pulmonary, a sue
session of hemorrhages diminished his remaining
strength, and after severe and protracted suffer
lag. in which his faith did not fail bim, undismayed
ky the approach of death, tranquil and conscious
to the last, he died on the 7th imt., in the thirty
si i tii year ef his age.
Mr. Bpslsiqh was attracted to t! Anti-Slavery
movement early in life, and about 1839 began his
Irst publie labor iu New England. In 1345 he
euu to Philadelphia, and one year afterwards ac
cepted the call of the Executive Committee to the
'editorial care of the Ptnnsyhania Freeman, where
he continued, witfc occasional associates, and a few
intermissions, mtil compelled by ill health to re
io'hie'Aotieein March, 1854.
An -editor of the Freeman, ha was also a mem
iker ef the Executive Cmnmitteo, where his valu
able eounsel and indefatigable industry were fully
appreciated. During the nine years he was activ
ly engaged in the field as a lecturer, whenever his
editorial labors permitted, making extensive ex
cursions into parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey
' ofl Delaware, where Anti-Slavery was unknown,
ritb rare assiduity ar.d devotion braving the in-
lament seasons, and the more savnge and inhnspi
eble prejudices of the people, toiling on patiently
au iiupeiulty, la U. slow but kuu r,ric3Mj to
tthat martyrdom which at last befvl him.
He was a man of an admirable intellect, ai.d of
tfin ..excellent spirit, tho former furnished by judic
ious industry, the latter quickened by a vigorous
sense of duty. An eloquent speaker, a forcible
writer, an ncute and comprehensive observer of
events, with an intelligent appreciation of the
.Reforms which characterise our time, but regard
ing Anti-Slavery as his first cnte, lie was ready for
whatever service the occasion demanded, perform
ing the drudgery of tho cause, with tho same
thoroughness, intelligence and devotion with
which he proclaimed its profoundest principle or
enjoyod its highest privileges.
Of eucb clearness in his perceptions of dutv.
and such singleness of purpose in its performance,
the doubts that impede some and the fears that
mislead others were unknown to him, and if oc
casionally there might appear somewhat of severity
in his moral judgments of persons and cvents.it
was but the the result of his habitual reference ol
all things to principles, rather than to persons, the
steady effort to bring life to tho test of the absolute
.and the universal.
Few among as succeeded better than he "to re-
. member those in bonds as bound with tbero," to
put the soul in the stead of the tool that suf
fers," to feel and speak as tne slave would do ot
his .roes aud wrongs. Brave and just by nature,
and from principle, he could neither comprehend
nor tolerate cowardice or meanness, although no
man was more mersiful to tho erring, or more sym
pathising with the suffering than he.
Simple and singularly pure in his tastes and
. habits, affectionate and loyal in bis relations, he
was respected and beloved. To how many hearth
stones will the tidings of his death bring a
Who will supply his place in the great work be
fore as Lol the fields are ripe unto harvest, but
the laborers are few, and of the few how many
have fallen I
If a religious life consists in the forgetfulncss ol
elf ia the service of others, in the consecration ol
all that a man has and all that he is to his highest
apprehension of duty, then Mr. Bcrleiou's was
. eminently a religious life.
- On the 3d of February, pursuant to an engage-
ment (not previously fulfilled by reason of his ill
ness) he was married to Miss Margaret Jonis, ol
this eity, sister to Benjahix S. Jones, of Salem,
Ohie, formerly editor of the Buglo, by whom, with
. some of his brothers and other devoted friends, he
was attendod with unwearied solicitude.
' No hirod watchers did for him the last kind of
floes of humanity, but affection, through its holiest
relations, ministered to bim to the end, and at his
funeral the venerable Henry Grew, Lixretu Mott
and C. C. Burleigh bore appropriate testimony to
the integrity of bis life nnd the tranquility of his
death, and a large and silent concourse of people
paid its tribute to his private worth and his public
ae price. :
i- lie is doad. But the cause of Freedom which
' be remembered iu its weakness and defeat, will
. net forget him, in its strength and triumph. Trirth
. and Justice but await the fitting period to vindicate
their defenders. Time is charged with the sacred
mission of preserving their memories and present
ing them to the future, set in relief against the
darkness of the ages that denied them.
When the American Anti-SIaveiy movement
shall have passed into history, as the moral cru
sade of these latter times, second only in impor
tance to the advent of Christianity, or the Refor
mation, men will begin to realize their indobtcd
bees to its early advocates, who, with simple reli
ance on the power of Truth, went forth to the la
bor and the sacrifice. Proceeding with rare In
telligence and unflagging seal to the re-anunciation
of principles, fallen into disfavor among those
-who had loudest professed them, patiently submit
ting to practical seclusion from the sympathy and
s-xiety of coteuiporarics, cheerfully enduring pri
vation, obloquy and outrage, awaiting, in tho to
.reuity of faith, the hour of the Truth's triumph,
-and of their own bistorio justification, as sure to
eomeas day and night, seed time and barvest.suin
..per and winter.
. To this unfailing compensation of the moral
universe, this infallible Justico of humanity, we
committed the name and character of our friend
aud brother, whom ire shall miss from the places
that knew him, more and more. B. 11. P.
From the Standard we cpy the following ao
'couat of the funeral of our friend Burleigh; Ed.
" Our valued friend and esteemed coadjutor,
Cyras M. Burleigh, whoso health had been so long
declining, hat at last taken his depnrture. Ou
Wednesday morning ho breathed his last, and on
(Saturday afternoon his mortal remains were con
veyed to tho tomb. The house from which the
funeral procession moved was densely crowded by
'Ills numerous friends, who came there to pay to
his memory the last tribute of their affeotionate
rsgard. A strong and heart-warm testimony to
?bia parity of life and general worth was borne by
thoee who bad known bim long and well; and the
trickling tear en maoy a cheek was tbe silent
wjto9, t tbe fart of thote wko listened, to the'
truth and justice of what was said. IlenryOrewV
Locretia Mutt and Charles C. Burleigh wore- the
speakers. Mr. Orew dwelt upon the moral up.
rightti and dovotedness to principle of our
fiicnd, and especially upon his entire consecration
of heart to the cause of the suffering and opprosesd.
He addressed himself, with deep pathos, to those
pre ent who were personally bereaved by this sad
event, and exhorted all to lay to heart the lesson
which the occasion m. solemnly inculcated.
"Mrs. Mott said this was the second time in a very
short period that the fronds of the slave in this
city had been called to mourn tho dtparture of a
valued coadjutor. Our beloved friend Haworth
Wothernld, had been taken awny in the prime
of his manhood, and nt the full tide of his useful
ness, aid now, when our tears had scarce ceased
to flow, and before tho wound in our heart had
timo to heal, another, still younger and moving
iu a yet wider sphere of useful activity, and
whom wo bad fondly counted on for indefinite
years of service, has been cut down and who shall
supply his place T Mrs. Mott recalled the tune
when our friend first came among us, nine yoars
ago, in the froshness and vigor, as it were, of his
youth ; she spoke of bis glowing and earnest seal,
and the eloquent appoils osneoially by which he
sought to inspire others of tho same age with a
portion of hie own dovotedness. She regarded his
arduous life and early death ns in soino sonte a
martyrdom ; not doubling that it had been his in
defatigable and self-forgetting hbors that had
put a premature period to his days.
Mrs. Mott was followed by C. C. Burleigh, the
brother of the deceased, who, in low tones and in
a voice much impeded by emotion, ntttred one of
the most beautiful and touching eulogiums lever
heard on any similar occasion. I wish I could
recall some of the beautiful and well-sustained
figures in which his glowing fcoling expressed
,. . . ,, .
lect to allow
itself: but niv memory is too imper
ue even to attempt it.
"The interment took place at the "Woodland,''
a beautiful crmetory, on tho west bunk of ibe
Schuylkill, about a mile below the city. The day
was excessively cold and disagreeable, but, not
withstanding, quite a goodly number followed the
body to its last resting place. As wo stood around
tho grave, Mary Orew, said, w ith u voice and man
ner deeply imprcs.-ive:
"He has fought a good fight; he has kept the
faith : he has finished his course. lie has gone
beforo us, our true-henrled brother, to the spirit-land;
whence his voice comes back to us, saying,
'Be ye faithful unto death.' "
This was the end of these solemn ceremonies.
the procession was re-formed, mid the sad party
returned to their homes, soino mourning for their
personal bereavement, end all sorrowing for the
departure of a true friend Ui humanity.
This event has not como upon us suddenly, yet
it can hardly be said that we were prepared for it.
It is a year since our friend was disabled from
active labor, and for oven a longer timo th:in
that the result w hich has now been reached was
by some of us clearly furs eon ; jet his loss is
none the less sensibly felt. He has left a gap
which we have not yet been able, nor have we
now any prospects of being able, to fill.
His place we may not well supply.
Though we among ten thousand try
With vain endeavor.
Tho truth is to pass from this subject to another
which it naturally suggests our causo is sadly off
for efficient active laborers. Though many new
oonvertsare added to our ranks, our lecturing
agents are lamentably few. James W. Walker is
gone ; Parker Pillsbury is broken down in health,
and abroad; Frodcrick Douglas lends his influ
ence to our enemies and pulls down while ho builds
up: Lucy stone has been transferred to anothor
field, and now Cyrus Burleigh, our faithful and
true friend, whose industy knew no faltering,
and whose teal never flagged he, too. has gone,
and we have none to take his place. Thote thoughts
are truly saddening.
"And yet, thank God. our causo moves bravely
forward ; and here and everywhere are seen evi
dences of its steady progress toward a groat tri
umph." Still Another Case. On Sunday last, the
steam. boat Falle City, arrived at Cincinnati with
ten slaves on board. A writ of Haboas Corpus
was issued. But the entrance of tho theriff on the
boat was resisted until the slaves wero conveyed to
the Kontucky Bide of the river, or concea'ed on
board. A rule was subsequently issued by the
court, requiring tho Captain to show cause why
attachment should not be issued nguinet bim for
contempt of court. But when the officers sought
the captain he was among the missing. So the
effort failed, nnd the ten slaves will probably he
taken on to finish their days in bonds. It is howe
ver most encouraging to see so earnest a purpose
iu Cincinnati to stop tho progress of elave tram,
portation over Ohio soil.

Our energotio friend, Daniel Bonssll, who never
surrenders to slavery, beard the report, and at once
declared, They shall have a meeting in Canfield
I will see to that." And so he did ; and the
consequence was a largo and thoroughly interest

The same lack of faith and energy that was en
countered at Canfiuld, has characterized the friends
of soma other tdaces : and w e no-v assure those
friends, for their oonsolatiun, that their apathy has

And tho duty of tho faithful historian will re

and women to unpaid toil, treating ibcm with bar-
