There have been very diflercntfpntiinentsl among different nations in repnrd tothej treatment llicy should ive to the remains 1 oTthe dead. At onetime an ciTort wasj made to embalm tlio dead, in order to pre-1 rette. every feature, etcry lingering linea- meni of the countenance, as it was when i I i tin!?. At another, the exact reverse of this was pursued, and instead of attempting tri preserve the feature or form, even, they burned the body and timed only the ashes for preservation. The sentiment of our Saxon race is en tirely differdit from cither. Their seuti hicnt and their wish is, that when the fam ily die, they may be gathered together in one -group, in the same graveyard; anil whrlqer it may be in a marble tomb above, in rtic peaceful and powerful gravo bc- ueath the ground, that they may lie, side by tide, where only " a lew feet ol tullon earth divides each winding sheet." It is in accordance with sentiments know to he universal, that Congress has so ofien, and I believe sojustly, tent an escort of its own members to tho home of aflec tinnaio relatives with the remains of the de parted associate. It is for this causo that jou see so many of these mule and grate less iiinnutnenis in your Congressional bu ry me ground. 1 Ins, I deem it, is the educated craving of our nature.

A very pleasant ami profitable Conven- and there were present about thirty Mutes, anil resolutions were passed lo raise means to aid in the erection of a Monument to the memory of our lamented benefactor. The Committee exceedingly regreticd that a larger number of .Mutes were not present, and will endeavor, hereafter, to see that all arc supplied with cards for the Contention. A new Committee of eight were chosen last Not ember, to perfect the arrangements in season for the next Convention, that all might be prepared in season ; and il is hop ed that there may he a lary r attendance at tho Convention than there was last year, as they will have the pleasure of meeting their id hC,loo aj gVioiid. Should any I one he, unable to meet with the Conven tion, the Committee would be pleased to receive by letters, tlirectid to thr cure of Daniel V. Phelps, of Middhhury, Vt., ur George Al.

Gailaudet, aud aud it is hoped that there may be manifest ed a zeal on the part of the Deaf Mutes of this State which will awaken an interest in those of other Slates. Also, to see what means the Conrention will devise to establish an Annual Society (or the improieraeut of their education. It is a lamentable fact, that many who have been through a course of study, have re turned to their homes and neglected it, un til they aro in no better condition than they were before they went to 'school. Some thing should be done to remedy this-ctil, nut) it is proposed to consider tho matter at the next Contention, and also to transact any other business which may bo deemed necessary. Alesss. Iltown, David and others, from New Hampshire and other States, are c.v peeled lo be present and address the Con vention upon tho subject of the proposed Monument, and also upon tho System of Education for Mutes. Arrangements will bo made with the presidents of the several railroad compa nies to grant the Mutes a pass lo the Con vention. Each one of the Cotnrnitlee will act as conductor on the several railroad lines in this State, and will meet the .Mutes 'at the several depots and conduct them into the cars, The Deaf-and-Dumb ladies will' be placed under the care of some one of the older Deaf-and-Dumb ladies, and they need not fear any dangers.

The young student turned lo the profes sor, saying " Let us play the man a trick ; we will hide his shoes, and conceal ourselves he Iiiml these buahes, and watch to sec his per-1 plexity when lie cannot find them." j "Alt- dear frienil."'aiiMiered the orofi-s. My dear friend," answered the profes sor, " we miit never amilv, oursehes a the expense of the poor. Hut jou are rich, 1 " ' ' . , 1 1 1 . . 'itrnrpi!

UU .watch the laborer, and see whatever wonder I sl"r"3 111 or joy he might express. The poor man soon finished his work, and came across the field to the path where he had left bis coat and shoes. While he put on his coat, he slipped one foot into one of his shoes ; feeling something hard, he stooped down and found the dollar. Aston ishment and wonder were upon his counte nance; he gazed upon the dollar, turned it round, and looked again and again; then he looked on all sides, but could see no one. Now he put the money in hts iock ct, and proceeded lo put on his other shoe; hut what was his astonishment when he found the other dollar.

The young man stood there, deeply af fected, the tears glistening in hts eyes. " Now," said the professor, " are yon not much belter pleased than if you had played your intended trick ?" " Oh, dearest sir." answered the youth, " von have taunht me a lesson now that I will never fnrcei. 1 leel now the truth of the words which I never before understood ' It is heller to give than to receiie.'

Dr. Hume, principal medical attendant on his Grace's slaff, on preparing i'ie list, hast ened to the Duke's lent, and, giving ihe pas word, was ushered in b) the sentinel. His Grace was asleep. The doctor was aware of the fatigue ihe Duke's Bystem had undergone, and hesitated to wake him. The order of the Duke, oh the other hand, had been issued with more thin usual per empionues" ; and the doctor ventured to give the Duke a shake. In an instant his Grace, dressed as he had beca, in full regi mentals, was sitting on the bedside. 'Head,' was the significant command. For more than an hour had the doctor rnad aloud the harrowing list, and then his voice failed, and Ins throat choked with emotion. He tried to continue but'could not. Instinctively he 1 raised his eyes to the Duke. W elhngton ,. ctlll iiMiiir. u.tili hi. Iinnrla ranuf! mi,! clasped convulsively before him. Big tears werocoursmg down his cheeks. In a mo ment, the Duke was conscious of the doc tor's silence, and, recovering himself, look ed up and caught his eye. ' Read on,' was the stern command, and while his physician continued for hours, the ' Iron Duke' sat by the bedside, clasping Ids hands, and rock ing his body to and fro, willi emotion. A credulous clown went to tho clergy man of his parish, and told htm, with great consternation, that he had seen a ghost. " Where did you see ill" " Why," said Diggory, " as I war going, an' please your rivereuce by the church, right up against the walls I sees the ghost." " In what shape did il appear 1" " For all the world like a great ass." i "Go home and hold your tongue," re plied the clergyman; "you are a timid crea ture, and have been frightened at your own shadow." It has been nsscrtcil that if tho canh turned, a body throWti up into the air ougl t to fall backwards; that n stone let fall fintu the top of a tower ought not to fall at the foot of the building, because the erih hud moved during" the lime ofthc fall. This is nn error ; experiments have shown that n projected hotly partakes the motion of the projector. Thus a person on board ship throws a body up into tho ttir and catches it acain with facility, and thercforp hq thinks he throws it up vertically; vthcrcas, seen from the shore, the body appears throvti obliquely upward and forward. Every one knows that a stone dropped from the mast of a vessel in full sail, falls at the foot of the mast, just as it would do if the vessel were at rest ; and that a bottle of water, inverted and suspended above tho cabin, leaks out, drop by drop, and fills another placed exactly underneath, though thcvecsel sails several feat in tho time each drop takes to fall. Ahaoo. Tho profane swearer generally denies the consciousness of having uttered an oath, when reminded of the same by those whom he knous are shocked at the sound of bias- pjjeinous language. He is still susceptible. 01 ins wrong, asid 111 order to get rid ol the implication, he thinks a Utile falsehood may smooth over the matter: but if reprehended j for this also, yoti may perhaps see him come out in Ins true character denouncing cc ry thing that is good or sacred, enraged at having been caught in the meshes of his own net.
