Von, but juiljioe froiii tin- atn'eof your pue
your time with us i.s short. He replied, "lam
cmare of it." It was iicht 1 o'clock P. M.,
and his mind and memory xwnird perfect. I
said to him, in this soleiun hour of your ap
parent dissolution, helii'vini: ns you do in the
sacred Scripture, your ae -ountuhiliu to God,
lot ine ask you how yu feci in view of ap
proachintr eternity: whether yo i have c"d
hope through ff -v t'nt itil vour sins will be

tiess of his beloved Son, our Lord jesus Christ,
who in love stilfcred and died for us the nion
i?.ig bitter death of ihe Cross, by whom alone
we can have the nnlv sure hope of salvation?
To which he said, wilh deep nnd evident emo
tion. "On that subject 1 am coy." By which
I understood him in mean that on a subject of
such ninjjnitiide and momentous interest, touch
ini the assurance of his salvation, he felt coy
(cautious, n the word denotes) to express him
self in full confidence.
With his usual cordial concurrence nnd
manifest desire we kneeled in prayer before
the throre of henrcnly trraee, imploring God's
mercy and blessing. lie turned iu his bed
nnd put himself in nn humble nevotional pos

recommended him to the mercy of God nnd 0
the word of his jirnce with n hist fnrewell.
At nbout 2 o'clock P. M., without a sronn or
btraggle, ho breathed his last. His death was
easy and neiitle as a tnper in the socket nnd
as the summer's wave that dies upon the shore.
Thus died Cel. Aaron Burr.
His first funeral service wns performed by
tne in the Port Richmond Uone, where he
died. "Thence we took his remains to the C'.a
pel of Princeton Colleee, N Jersey, where
Dr. Carnahan, tho President, nnd layself per
formed hia last funenil service before the stu
dents, the faculty, the military, a nd a numer
ous assemblage, nnd he was buried, ns he re
quested, in the supulchre ol his ancestors."
The Great Central Sea in Africa.
We have already noticed the discovery of a
vast aea in the interior of Africa, hut we do
not remember to have seen till now a statement
of its extent nnd locality. If the boundaries
fixed in the following extract me correct, t'ais
sea is about fcix hundred miles lonirfrom north
to south, nnd over four hundred miles broad
from east to west. We hnv seen it stated
that the water of this vast inhitul sea is salt.
The existence of such a sea 'has long ben a
matter of belief, from the fact that, with the
exception of the Nile and ihe Niger, no great
rivers flow from Central Africa to the ocean.
In the Calwer Missionsblatt we find, with
some letters from Dr. fiebmnn dated the 13th
and 30th of April, a map which is communi
cated by the learned missionary. On this map.
Iietween the Equator nnd 10 decrees of south
latitude, and between the C3d and 30(h mari
dian, lie an . immense sea, without outlet,
nvice as Inine the Black Sea, including the
Sea of AzofT. It is designated Ukerewe, or
Inner Sea, and the veil known Nijassn Sea
nmx-nr as a small bay on the southeast." Pr
Kcbmatl refers to a map in detail, which his j
rnmuaninn. Dr. Erhardt, is brinpine to Europe,
This preai discovert', tho consequtnses of
