Fer the True American. IHE CAR OF STATE, t , In this age of improvement, when care convenience and refinement, is studious ly consulted, it is pleasing to the artisan, to herald the progress in mechanical skill designed to out-wing lime, and dispense with pedestrian travel The latest of which, we take great pleasure in announ cing, 'as being .that of the Car of State, or, Paymasters Sub-treasusy ; for .the use of the S. & I. R. R. Designed especially to convey the Paymaster, monthly, (if convenient,) along the line of the road, to make glad the needy employes. We hasten to a description, of this speci men of the fine arts. First premising that, the anology and fitness of things, is as fully maintained in this Car, when coupled to the Dinkey Locomotive; as that of the traveling 'equipage of Tom. Thumb. The relative proportion of pace for the Paymaster, being equivalent to that allowed for Tom's corporacity. As to who the designer or architect may be, we are not informed. But presume that he is familiar with bulivers history of the Liliputians, and may from thence, have derived his proportions. Description. The platform surface, of this Car, is some thirteen feet in length, by seven in width. Upon which, at the after end, is constructed the Paymasters Boxbeing six feet by -seven ; and of ordinary height. The order of Architecture, is that of the gothic ; lit up by goihie windows at the sides. The ingress, being at the af ter end of the Car. Forward of the Box is placed the water Tank, for the supply of the Dinkey. As a safeguard, and to sustain the ponderous weight of the Pay master and his treasure, the. whole is surmounted upon six ordinary sized car wheels. The peculiarity of this Car, is, its spe cial adaptation to but one purpose; and its great economy of room as it admits of a table stand, and two chairs for the convenience of the Paymaster and his body guard. with 'space for the ingress of a suitor to draw his wages. Such, are the conveniences for the summer arrange ment, upon the addition of a stove, the fellowship must of necessity be closer. The other peculiarity of this Car, is, that of its becoming a Tender for the Dinkey ; Se that, in all their peregrina tion, their union is as dependant as the Siamese-twins. Such is the description of this modern railtoad sedan. But to whom the credit is due, we are. not prepared to state. Letters patent, we think, have not been taken out, And we presume, that other Railroad Companies, might without risk, avail themselves of this valuable improve ment. As it is not in the power of the pen, to give as s vivid representation as that of the pencil, we would advise all, to seek a birds eye view, of this ''Car of State." . Looking to the future, we can readily conctive ti e interest that will bs felt, in the Hpprarance of this " payiog Car," along the line of the road, at the appoin ted lime. Not more intently did the servant of Elisha, look for a cloud arising out of the sea, After the jbng drought t than will the employes and expectants, look to the East, for the uppeannce of this ominous Car. And although in the distort' it may not appear larger than that of a man's hand, '. y et. lo them, it is porti'Dtious of itlief. Jt wtU be lo them, as the breaking forth of the sun, from behind a dark cloud. Q- P. S-.Il is a question for economists to solve, whether the bird or the ca should first be procured! Death and Funeral of Dr. Kane. fni a a, il a no great event oi me last weeK, in this city, was the arrival of the remains of Dr. Kane and the scene that followed in committing his remains to the grave We have seen no excitement in Philadel phia for many years past that created -so much interest. And well it miffht be so, This was the native city of the disting uished and lamented dead. Here he re ceived his birth, here he was trained in ti e halls of science and the walks of lit erature, here he formed his early associa tioos, and here he first displayed those rich promises of greatness and fame that have been so signally realized. As the hero on the field of battle, as the adven turer on -every sea, till lead even up lo the Arctic regions,. as the philanthropist seeking the welfare of his race at the very peril of his own life,' as the noble being whose heart sent its pulsations of sympathy and love to the very circum ference of the globe, he could not die and fcturn to the graves of his fathers and friends,- there to repose in the shades of his native oily and not draw around him the thousands that dwell there. Indeed she blesses that kind Providence that gave her such a sou, and rejoices in the privilege of lavishing her honors' upon his memory. Every lapd mourns for him as for a favorite child, and pours forth tears of sorrow that his labors are brought to such an untimely end. Every quarter of the globe joins in the tribute of affec tion and praise offered in this city, the past week. No other man had acquired such a fame at so early a period of life, nor could have been followed to the grave amid so much lamentation. Though but thirty-five years of acre, he. lived Ions if life be estimated by the character form ed and the deeds done. His name will live while time lasts, on the pages of his tory and the hearts of a grateful posterity. The book written by his own pen, a book that cost him his life, containing his noble adventures, is immortal. It is the richest and1 best monument that can be erected to his memory. That will live when brass and stone have crumbled into dust In behalf of our city we thank those who expressed their sympathy and re spect while his remains passed along from the sunny isles where he bid adieu to earth and its scenes till safely arrived in our midst. As another such scene may not occur in a life-time, we shall here give a little outline of what pertained to the funeral solemnities from the time cj the reception of the remains in this city till commuted to the grave. This city was reached about four o'clock Wednesday afternoon, at Broad and Prime Sts. by the cars from Baltimore, where a large collection were awating the arrival. A procession was at once formed; which marched up Broad Street, down Walnut Street to Sixth, and then to the Slate House, where the body lay in state till the next day at 12 o clock. At the State House the committee from Baltimore delivered uo their trust to the committee of Philadelphia in connection with appropriate and impressive speeches by John Dukehart- and Joseph R, Chandler, No more befitting place than this for that deposit where the Declaration of Independence was signed, that vener able, conseciated and endeared spot to all lovers of great and noble deeds, hal lowed by freedom and patriotism and ev ery philanthropic virtue. Ihe next morning was a clear and beautiful one, and the streets at an early hour were thronged with those anxious to join in the last tribute of tespect to a loved friend and distinguished citizen , the Hall was draped in mourning, busi ness to a large extent suspended, and the streets where the body was to pass on its way to the cemetry, displayed their sym bols of sorrow. Between ten and eleven o'clock the doors were thrown open to friends and visitors, but the crowd was so great .that it was impossible to receive much gratification horn entrance. Ihe military and civic organizations formed in the morning, and by 12 o'clock were ready for the procession to move. The line of unnumbered thousands pas sed along Walnut St. to Seventeenth St., down Arch St. to Seventh,' and thence, lo the Second Presbyterian Church, THE FUNERAL CAR was a magnificent affair, got up purposely for the occasion. It consisted of a plat form covered with black cloth, for the re ception of the coffin. Over this platform lofty and beautiful canopy of black stuff was thrown, and this In turn was surmounted by a dome. The latter was ornamented with' white stars and trimmed with white gimp. - The inside of the can opy was lined with white silk. At either corner of the platform were placed the flags of England, France, Spain, and the United States. The flags were festoon ed with crape. When the coffin was placed upon the spot assigned for it, the American flag was thrown around it, and the garlands of Mowers, and the sword of the deceased, which were upon the remains in the Hall, were retained there while upon the car. The catafalque was drawn by six fine black horses, each of which was led by a groom. i Ihe military was the most imposing portion of the procession, and the nume rous companies in 'the line looked and marched admirably. The funeral ear with its honored burth en, and the prominent gentlemen who at tended it as pall bearers, were objects of general interest, bat no persons in the line excited more general attention than the surviving comrades of Dr. Kane, who followed immediately after the remains of their late commander, bearing among them the weather-beaten flag of the Ad vance. - This party was led by the gallant Wil liam Morton, a name which will be famil iar to all who have read the account of ' the last Arctio Expedition, under the com mand of the lamented Kane. There was a crowd about the ehurch the Second Presbyterian from 11 o'clock, which increased until the arrival of the procession. , Ropes were stretched across Seventh street, both above and below, to keep (he crowd from the front. ' ; . i' v Those only who had tiokets were ad mitted previous to the arrival of the pro cession. This took place shortly. beiore 2 P. M. The body was brought in and placed at the head of the middle aisle. It was covered with the American on which a number of beautiful mottoes had been placed. The music in the church was remarka bly; solemn and beautiful. It was under the direction of Mr. W. H. W. Darley, organist of St. Luke's Church, and the solo parls were performed by members of the choir of that church. J. here was first an opening voluntary on the organ The vocal pieces were as follows : Anthem "I heard a voice from hea ven," from Mozart, arranged by Mr. J, C. B. Slandbridge. - Hymn.'1 Hark to the solemn bell." 00 .''Forgive, blest Shade," by Dr. Cakott, sung by Professor 1 . Bishop Chorus.'1 Unveil thy bosom faithful tomb," by Handel. The pastor, Rev. C. W. Shields, soon entered, accompanied by Rev C. Wads worth aud Dr, Bordman, Mr. Wads worth offered prayer, after singing an an them, and then read a chapter from the Bible. The Rev. Mr. Shields, the pastor of the deceased, and family of the de- ceased, preached the luneral sermon. when he sketched in truthful and glow me words the character and services of Dr Kane. The following are the closing remarks of the sermon, with the closing exerci ses: The disease by which Dr. Kane was prostrated was that terrible scourge of Arctio lite, some seeas ot wnicn ne re tained in his system on bis return, hut afterwards developed and enhanced by the exhausting literary labors incident to the narrative of the expedition. Entirely under-estimating fhoae- labors (of which but few of us are prepared to form an adequate conception) lie was quite too thoughtless of the claims of the body he had been so long accustomed to subject to his purpose, and only awoke to a dis covery of the error when it was too ' late. With this melancholy conviction, he an nounced the completion of the work to a friend in the modest and touching sen tence, "the book, poor as it is, has been my coffin." Helen the country under a presenti ment that he should never return. For the first time in his life, departure is sha ded with foreboding. It was. indeed. an alarming sympton to find that iron nerve, which had hitherto sustained him under shocks apparently not less severe, thus beginning to falter. Yet it will en hance thjs interest that now gathers around his memory to learn that even then the great purpose of his life he had not wholly abandoned, but in spite of the most serious entreaties was already pro jecting another' Arctic axpedition of re search and rescue. This object of his visit he was not destined to mature. Nei ther was it his privilege to enjoy the hon ors that awaited him, Succsssive and more virulent attacks of disease obliged him to recur to the last resorts of the in valid. In hope of repairing the wounds inflicted by the savage rigors of the North he is borne lo (he more genial South, where at length, beneath its sunny skies, and amidst its balmy airs, supported by the ministries of love'and the consolations of religion, his life drew gently to a close. In the near approach of death he was tranquil and composed. With too little strength either to support or indicate anything of rapture, he was yet sufficient ly eoncibus of his condition lo perform some. last acts befitting the solemn emer gency, in reference to those whom he conceived to have deeply injured him, he expressed his cordial forgiveness. To each of the watching group around him, his hand is given in the fond pressure of a final parting; and tben as it sensible that his ties to earth are loosening he seeks consolation from the requested rea ding of such Scripture sentences as had been the favorite theme of his thoughtful hours. Now, he hears, those soothing beati tudes which fell from the lips of the Man of sorrows, in successive benediction. Then, he will have repeated to him that sweet, sacred pastoral " The Lord is my shepherd ; I shall not want. He niaketh me lay down in green pastures ; He leadeth me- beside the still waters. Yea, though 1 walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil ; for thou art with me ; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me." At length are recited the consolatory words with which the Savior took leave of his weeping disciples: " Let not vour heart be troubled ; ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions ; if it were not so, 1 would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." And at last, in the midst of this com forting recital, be is seen to expire so gently, that the reading still proceeds some moments after other watchers have become aware that he is -already beyond the reach of any mortil voice. Thus, in charity with all mankind, and with words of the Redeemer in his ear, con veyed by the tones most familiar and be loved on earth, his spirit passed from the world of man. The heart refuses to.de.al with such a reality. Death never seems so much a usurper on the domain of life as at the grave of the young and the gifted. In infancy, we strive to complete that bril liant fragment of a history so abruptly en ded. We 'are carried forward into the future in an .effort to picture all that he might have been to his country and the world, until drawn back again by these sad shows of our loss and sorrow, noth ing seems to us'so visionary as this fleet ing life, and nothing to us so empty 'as human greatness. Alas I the head of the victor droops id death at the moment it is extended to grasp the laurel. Prayer, iy Dr. Boardm an. , Solo" Forgive, blest shade," by Dr Calcott, .sung by Prof. T. Bihop.

Ihe immense cortege then moved to Laurel Hill Cemetery, where the last sad rights to the honored dead were performed. Christian Chron. A Cow-Hiding Affair. A Slanderer eating his own wot'dsA .woman's wrongs righted by herself. A scene of unusual occurrence- took place at the Louisville Hotel yesterday which was the theme of "many inquiring friends, and of that rare old gossip "Madame Rumor," who is always nosing about where she ought not lo be. To be brief, a young woman, whose local habitation is Cincinnati, and whose name is well known in theatrical circles, il is alleged, had. been slandered and ass ailed by one a doctbr in our town who, from his past relations with her, should have remained silent. The proofs of his slanders were well established to her, and, grieving under the heavy pressure of their weight, she resolved to visit Louis ville and right her own wrongs. Accomoanied thither by two male friends; she proceeded in a masterly man ner to defend herself against his asper- tions. The young M. D. was sent for, and upon arriving at the Louisville Hotel was invited to sign a statement, retracting all he had said to the injury ot the lady endorsing her chaiacter to the fullest, and stating that, to the best 6T his belief, and from all he had ever seen and known ol her, her life had been perfectly in accor dance with the strictest and most virtuous propriety. The doctor for such is the title given him, and for which he has the credentials in his pocket not only gave this endorsement of the character of the lady, but called God to witness that he will' hereafter never mention her name except in those honorable terms whicn she fully merits. The lady after securing the necessary retraction, aumtnistereu a cowhide gently npou his back. The doctor made a rush at this, ana escaped through the billiard rpom to the street, and left the lady and her-friends in the distance. This was the whole affair, except that the statements diffej as to the amount of persuasion used to pro cure the signature to the document now in possession oi tne iauy. uce pany states that it was obtainea reauny and without force, while the other asserts, we understand, that he did not know what he was compelled to sign.

The Senate also passed the Senate bill amendatory of the act to provide for tax ing banks yeas 22, nay 6. It provides that banks shall make return to the audi tor of the county in which they are loca ted, instead of to the auditor of State, &c, &c. The Senate also passed the Senate bill to amend section 562 of ihe code of civil procedure yeas 29, nays none. The bill passed by the House relative to the non-use of jails, was amended in the Senate. The Senate then passed the bill yeas 22, nays 8 as follows : Yeas Messrs.

' The title was also amended so as to read "An act to prohibit tie confinement of fugitives from Slavery in the Jails of Ohio. The bill as amended will, no doubt, be agreed to in the House by a de cided majority, for the Dred Scott de cision has brought some of the strongest conservatives into the breach to stay the march of slave institutions into territories and States consecrated to Freedom. The Senate indefinitely postponed the Senate bill to amend the 192d section of the code of civil procedure. The Senate also passed the Senate bill to amend the 8th section of act to exempt the Homestead of families from forced sale on execution to pay debts, yeas 18, nays 7.

A motion to strike out the 12th seotion the bankruptcy provision prevailed by yeas 61, nays 25. ; The House then re fused to order the bill lo be engrossed for a third reading, yeas 37J nay .57. A motion was made to reconsider the vote, and the motion was ,laid on the table, yeas 60, nays 28. So the matter may come up again, but it is hardly probable, the vote to strike out the lZtu section be ing so decided. The House passed the House bill to amend section 14 of the act to punish crimes, il mokes the breaking into any dwelling house, shop, barn, kc, in the night season, with intent to kill, rob, steal 6io., burglary, and punishable in the penitentiary .from one to ten years.

The Call fornia appointments have been considered by the Cabinet, but not consumated. The National Hotel is to be closed to morrow. Sickles, Houck, and many- others of New York, had a long interview with the President this morning concerning the appointments of that city and State. The door was then thrown open to more than a hundred persons in waiting, including a Iresh Maryland delegation. Large nuni bers rushed up and hurriedly put their papers in his possession. The President said he wouid listen to them all seperate ly, were it in his power, but the Cabinet would meet in a few minutes and they would he said, have before the in one of the most important subjects ever brought to the attention of Government, and in tins connection, he said he had just recei ved the resignation of Gov, Geary, to take place on the 20th inst., and that time is past; hence, he remarked, you see it is impossible tor me, to attend to your case now.
