Montreal, Canada, Nov. 16.—The re mains of Gulbord were borne from the Pro testant cemetery at 10.30 a. m. to-day, fol lowed by about half a dozen carriagee, con taining the members of the Instit ute. Supper* intendent Boieeeau, was the only officer of the Inetitute present, the friends of Mr. Dontre having iaeisted upon his remaining away. The hearse was drawn by two blacL horses; the top was ornamented by a fine cross. Th* hearse was proceeded by a strong detachment of police,under the com mand of Chief Benton; they were followed by the military, who walked four abreast. About 11 a. m. there wa* a large crowd af French Canadians in the vicinity of the Ro man Catholic cemetery. Ominous remarks were made that "They could bury bis ac cursed remains,but they could not keep him there." The fu*:ral procession soon ar rived, headed by the police, and entered the church yard gates without opposition. A large crowd followed behind until the cor tege reached Gulbord's grave. Hero a stiong detachment of police encircled the grave. The hearse drove into the circle, and three laborers lowered the coffin containing the remains, which were very light, into the grave the bottom of which was laid in cement, just as the coffin was being low ered, some astonishment was caused by the appearance of the Cure Rousselot of the Roman Catholic Church, whose name it will be remembered figures prominently in all the law suits lu connection with this affair. He asked Superintendent Boisse an, "How deep is the grave due." Boisseau re plied "Four feet." He then asked Boisseau jf he would identify the remains as replying that he could not, the Cure took his de parture. The military were stopped by Mayor HIngston of St. Jean Baptist village and did not eater the cemetery as he considered their doing so might be looked upon as a desecration. As soon as the coffin was lowered six men com menced filling it with Pertland and Roman cement mixed with scrap iron. This hard ens very quick and after 12 hours can only be chopped out with the greatest difficulty. The Mayor has refused to keep a guard at the grave until the danger is over and the members of the institute say that to place a civil guard there would be to invite a riot. It Is thought by somethat an attempt may be made during the night to remove the re mains. The military have been withdrawn and disbanded. A heavy rain fell during tbc ceremony. Doutres' absence caused much remark. LATER. At the request of the institute Mayo Hiugstou has detailed a guard of police to watch over the grave of Guibord until furth er orders. Body Recovered.

Joseph Gulbord, over whose burial Ultra montanlsm aad the civil authority have came into eoifllct in this country, wa* a French Canadian Roman Catholic of dis" tinguislied piety and fidelity to the doctrines of his Church, and of excellent moral char acter. He was a printer, and for thirty-six years was in the employ of Louis Perrault & Sons. Guibord|was a man ef more than ordinary ability. Mr. Perrault considered him as one of the first printers in the Do-, minion. He had great mechanical ingenu ity, and was, in fact, a scientific printer. He wa* the first who introduced stereotyping into thi* country, and the book stereotyped in Canada was done under his supervision. At the time of his death he was the oldest printer in Canada except Mr. Lovell. Gulbord was sixty-two years of age when he died. Guibord was not one of the founders of the Instiitute Canadian but became a member Jhere two or three years after its establishment. When the Institut e fell under the displeasure of the Bishop for refusing to throw out of its library certain books that were plaeed in the Index at Rome, Guibord was one of about 200 mem bers who persisted in maintaining their con nection therewith, and who appealed to Rome against the arbitrary course of the Bishap. Guibord died suddenly on the 18tb of Nor ember, 1869 but three or four weeks previous, when seriously ill, he sent for a priesi, who came and heard his confession. The priest acting under direct instructions from the Bishop refused to administer to him extreme function, unless he would withdraw from the Institute, which Guibord refused to do. He rallied from that sickness, but ids death,when it subsequently occurred was so sudden that he had no time to send for a priest. A few days before his death Guibord met one of bis fellow-members of the Institute in the street, and asked him what was the news about their appeal to Rome. The answer was that no news had yet arrived,but the Institute hoped that jus tice would be done them. "I hope so, too,'* said Guibord, "for I feel that I am going fast, and unless the matter is settled before I die there will be a row about my grave. I am a poor man, and they will no doubt bury me along with those that have been hinged If they can." "Have no fears about that," returned his fellow-member, "your friend* will see that you are do worse treated than a rich man." Although Guibord was the owner of a lot in the Cemetery of Notre Dame, at Mon treal, the ecclesiastical officers of the par ish, under the Bishop's instructions,refused burial to bis remains. His widow applied to the eouris of Canada for relief. The tribunals decided variously, each party when beaten appealing to a higher Court. Meanwhile the widow of Guibord died, but before dying bequeathed all her property and claims of every kind to the Institute Canadian. This association car ried the ease to the Privy Council in the home country, and-that body, as the Court of last resort, in August last Issued a de cree in favor of the Institute Canadian. first The famous submarine tunnel of the English Channel will soon begun. The members of the French Commission, com posed for th* most part of practical men and engineers, declare that an underground communication between France and Eng land is only a question of expense, and their report leads to the belief that the project can be carried out with less expense than was at first imagined, and that the danger ef leakage and infiltration will not bee# great as was originally supposed. A shall will shortly be sunk on tho French side of tho Channel, near Calais, to a depth of 350 feel, for the purpoee ef hauling up the earth and rock from the excavation. or Bit AND TERMINER. NOTES MOM OUR COUNTY COURT—CHAD WICK AND HAYDEN ACQUITTED. New Casti.e, Nov. 18,1875. Notwithstanding the threatening aspect of the weather, to-tay, after the doors were open, the Court House rapidly filled by a large and expectant crowd. Exaetly at 10 o'clock Judges Gilpin Wooten,Houston also took their seats on the bench. The gentlemen of the Grand Jury and the general jury having answered to their names the case of the State vs. Cbudwlck was con tinued. The Hon. Thomas F. Bayard began hi* speech on behalf of the prisoner, he said, on adddressing the jury, he knew not whether it had ever been the duty of any of them to sit upon a case where the life er death of a fellow creature was at iksne. He bad been counsel, he said, in many such cases, and he never approached one of them without a grave sense of responsibility. He. went on to enumerate the different counts against the prisoner ; he strongly and in feeling language appealed to them to f'onslder the case unprejudiced and un clouded. He alluded at considerable length on the many scandalous reports respecting the prisoner, both by gossip and by the press. A man, however prosperous, how ever well doing he may, he has generally a closet in bis house and in that closet a skeleton. This man's house, (alluding to the prisoner's), has been fjer many years the scene of a domestic tragedy ; for, as yon well know, his wife was given to the terrible vice of intemperance. II* (coun sel) alluded in strong terms to the fact that seven important witnesses had not been called, and had they been so, how dif ferent would have been the disclosures ; but he would bring witnesses to prove the truth of the defense and lay all the facts before them. When a person dies, who ought to be called to give evidence as to the manner of death f Here in this court is a gentleman of high standing and respectability, and strange, yet nevertheless true, h ed ; why the omission he did he was not not know; the rest you gentlemen must know ; Doctor Fields will tell all ; no opinion, but facts that did occur under his own seeing. Peo ple, strange to say, who lived a distance of 80 feet from Chadwick's house, that knew and heard so much, never called to see her. Witnesses will be brought before yon who know the facts , you shall then decide the case. He then described in forcible language the miserable state to which Chadwick's home bad been reduced through the awiul intem perance of the prisoner's wife, and concluded in an eloquent appeal to the jury, saying that he desired justice and nothing else, and thouglit that after hearing the witnesses which would be produced he or his col league would not be heard in this case again. Dr. Wm. Fields, sworn. I live in Wa rning and haye had practice for upwards of forty years; was called in to see Mrs. Chad wick on the 1st of May; examined her and found erysipelas on the face, breast and arms; very sore to touch; very severe and aeute; applied the usual remedies; nothing else complained of; observed wound on right side of her head; on Inquiring as to how it happened, she replied she had got it by a fail; he desbrlbe the lessening of the disease day after day until it disappeared. On be ing qnestionedas to the wound on the head, he said he thought it was a flesh wound; no symptoms which attend congestion of the brain; even after death it would have shown through the dilation of the pupil; if you could only remove the pain in my chest doc tor I would be well she said. In con elud ing his evidence the learned gentleman g it as bis opinion that death was caused pneumonia of the lungs. Mrs. Mary Palfrey, sworn, in the course of her evidence she said Mrs. Chadwick told or sung the word that she fell in the entry. Also complained mnch of her chest and said "there was great misery there." She (the deceased) had a violent cough and ex pectorated much, no complaints of her hand ; saw no marks on face or body, dur ing sickness her mind was quite bright and clear. Cross examined by District Attorney, n* change in evidence. Mr. David Downs, sworn, gave evidence as to his long business trans ictions with the prisoner. The many loses Chadwick had come to through the intemperate habits of his wife related at considerable length the condition of the deceased at the time of her death. Mrs. Downs coroborated her husband. Wm. Chadwick, sworn; testified to the intemperate habit* of his mother and when intoxicated she would often cry out murder when no one was present. Matilda Chadwick recalled, and was pos itive that no such a cry as "Papa don't murder mama," was heard by her that night. Hannah corroborated her sister. No farther witnesses being called, the case without delay was left in the hands of the Jury after about one hours consultation they brought in a verdiet of "not guilty. The trial ef the State vs. Isaac Hayden, Indicted on the count for wilful fire raising log, the prisoner was arraigned and plead "not guilty." The District Attorney represented the State and the prisoner was defended by Henry Coaard and Henry Tomer, Esqs. The following jury were empanelled to try the case : Foreman, William Wood, Edward Boulden, Daniel Draper, David P. Derrickson, John F. Reyboid, William Woods, Edward A. Steops, George Haw thorne, Bayard Guest, - Thomas Lumm, Joseph Pogue, James Ward. The District Attorney, in a brief speech, stated hie case, and then called tho follew iag witnesses : William M. Jones statod he resided in Wilmington ; the night of the occurrence was a clear, moonlight night ; is employed by Robinson & Bro.; did not know the prisoner ; saw a person pass the end of the stable ; can positively swear it was prison er ; denied in a fllabusterlng style having ever said to Mrs. Long, at tbe corner of Second and Market, " that he did not see th* man apply the match but he would take the bounty ; he went on giving his evi dence in his own style:" he continued at a rapid rate, but waa effectually stopped by belag told ha might retire. Wm. H. Moore sworn— Lives on Walnut street; waa on the night of tho occurrence call ave by of it by at 12 o'clock, at Second and King street* ; heard cries of murder, apparently in the di rection of Market street bridge ; went to the place the fire was; seen Isaac Hayden at the end of the stable; seen him pick up an armful of wood about 100 yards from the stable; dees uot know who set it on fire. Cross-examined by Attorney Conrad.— Did you state before the Mayor that you seen Isaac Hayden with an armful of wood and throw it on the fire 1 Witness—I believe I did; could not posi tively say so now.

Cross-examined—He believed it was im possible for s person standing outside the fence to sat the stable on fire. police officer, sworn—Said he went Immediately on bearing the cry of fire to the stable; saw prisoner there trying to open the door; arrested tbs prisoner. Mr. Henry Turner addressed the jury for the prisoner,in an able and eloquent speech, in severe terms of the long delay lh bringing lilm to trial, now 11 months in prison. The speech was listened to with rapt attention. He concluded by appealing to the jury to do their duty and by doing te they woubd acquit the prisoner. At the conclusion of counsel's speech, witnesses were called for the defence. Robert Lydell, sworn; gave it as bis opinion that a man ' standing outside the close fence could fire the stable, standing on the flat attached to the coach factory he positively asserted that a man there could not recognize a person at that distance ur even see one inside the fence ; bad opinion of Jones' character. Mrs. Sarah Long, sworn ; I live in Wil mington, known William Jones some years; met him shortly after the occurrence on the corner of Second and Market street, and he (Jones) said to her. "I do not know the man who applied the match, but I will take the bounty." Several witnesses were examined as to the character of Moony and Jones anl the prisoner. Henry Conrad, Esq., then arose and ad dressed the jury in behalf of the prisoner in a manner worthy of commendation for one so young in bis profession. He bas certainly made bis mark among the members of the county Bar. His appeal to the jury was an able effort, characterized throughout by strong logical reasoning. At its conclusion the State's Attorney General replied forth* State. The jury then retired, and in a few min utes returned with a verdict of "not guilty." Daniel O'Neil of Wilmington was ar raigned on a charge of murder and felony in the 2d degree for the shooting of Sarah Doyle. He plead not guilty. After a few more arraignments, the Court adjourned.

It appears that a gentlemen, who is a Republican candidate for Sheriff, is guilty of a compound felony in so far as he has been trying to bribe the above Samuel Elliot to leave for parts un known, so that the prosecution may fall to the ground, thereby procuring him a vote.

TOE GEORGIA MINSTRELS. To-morrow evening these King Laugh Makers will make their bow before a Wil mington audience at the Opera House. Their fun is fairly side splitting, and keeps the audience in a continued roar of laugh ter from the beginning to the close of the performance. Their recent engagement in Boston was a perfect ovation, The houses being crowded nightly by the elite of the Boston Journal says: "As to tbe merits of this company, it is enough to say that any one who attends their perform ances, is in danger of falling into a ehronic state of laughter. The troupe is made up of gentlemen whose faces vary in shade— from the lightest mulatto, to those upon whom charcoal would leave a white mark. The troupe must be heard and seen to be appreciated.
