and taking every precaution to guard against
the effects of a freshet, which it was ex
pected must take place, as the water and
ice were descending yesterday with fenrful
rapidity. Reports from higher up the country
stat* that the streams were all swjller, with
the probable destruction ot the bridges.
funeral of thi* distinguished gentleman, who
was 40 generally esteemed during his lifetime,
took place yesterday afternoon, from his late
residence iu G street, and was very largely at
tended. notwithstanding the inclcmcncy of the
weather, forming altogether a most imposing
fiageant. The cortt^e was composed of a long
ine of carriages, and of others, consisting of
General Pierce, various members of the Cabi
net. Senators aud members of the House of
j<e).rcsentati^c:, soldiers of the war of 1812, a
numerous tody of gentlemen employed ia the
office of the Ininn newspaper, and a large con
course of other friends and relatives.
The following were the pall bearers: Genoral
Cass, General Houston, Gov. Dodge, Hon. Mr.
Bell, lion Mr. Cburchwell. Hon. Mr. Ewing,
H<>n. Mr. McMu'ilen. Hon. Mr. Jones, of La.,
Col. Clemens. General Jessup, General Law
s^n, and Mr. Selden.
The coffin was covered with black velvet,
silver luvunt^ij. and en the lid there was a sil
ver plue, with the name and age of the de
ceased inscribed thereon. A striking novelty,
but notwithstanding very appropriate, as a
touching token of respect, was the manner in
?bich the coffin had been decorated with
reveraj L*c utifgj bouquets of flowers, some
thing more akin to iooftality. in our esteem,
than the chapletsof evergreens, called immor
t'He.t. with which the French people are wont
to ad>rn the coffins and cemeteries of the dead.
It was after two o'clock when the procession
star.ed from the house for the Congressional
burial ground, and som- idea of its length may
beiopceived. when wc mention it as a fact,
tmu nea?l/ all the public hacks of the city
were engaged in audi'ion to the private car
rHires In the evening there was not 10 he
seen a public hack at scarcely any of the stands.
SgRno.i.?Yesterday evening the Rev. l)r.
P>utler preached at Trinity Episcopal Church,
upon the subject of Dives and Lazarus. The
drift of his discourse was to show that from the
answer of Abraham to Dive*, supernatural
visitations and warnings would not be so effi
cacious in converting as the Gospel and the
prophets. He showed that men would not
often be converted although they were tfcoT
cugbly convinced of the truth of Christianity ;
bat deadening their consciences, would reply
to any remonstrance with some casuistical
query Numerous instances from the scrip
tures were cited, showing that many, who had
actually witnessed tho miracles of Christ, yet
remained obdurate. Even the raising of
Lazarus from the dead, was insufficient to
convert the unbelieving. Even the fact of a
visit from the other wo'ld would perplex still
more the sceptic-;1. on account of its very singu
larity. in lining him rather to doubt the fact
itself than to believe in the warning.

An election for five representatives to the
Board of Aldermen, and eleven to the Board
of Common Council is now going on in our
citj. From present indications the coiitost
will be quite a spirited one. Both parties ap
pear to be thoroughly drilled for the occasion,
and both sanguine of success. The tickets of
each are good, composed of some of our very
best citizens. All trader and professions, wo
believe, arc well represented, except the sohoo 1
m ister and physician. Both of these honora
ble callings has unfortunately been overlooked.
We say unfortunately, because we have fre
nuen'ly thought heretofore, while attending
the Council meetings, that there was some ne
cessity for the school-master's being abroad
with hie birchen rod, to reduco the hulky
? sons" to order. And when we have listened
to the thunder and lightniug speeches, sweep
ing every thing before them, like a long pent
up tornado just turned loose upon the broad
expanse of old ocean, we have thought it would
be well to have m physician at hand to admin
ister some cooling draughts, to reduce if pos
sible, the enormous height of the political
thermometer. What will be the result of the
eleetioa to-day, we cannot foretell. The bal.
lot-box must tell the tale. Do and say what
we may, the 4 sovereign people" will make
their own choice, and in tnatohoice we shall
be perfectly satisfied. We have no particular
i interests to represent. We pledge ourselves,
however, as a careful spectator, to keep the
dear people well posted upon all matters of
importance which they may from time to timo
have under consideration, and to keep them
