Ouk people, pretty generally, " ab stained fiom their usual avocations" yesterday ; but it is safe to say that the day was not observed in the same spirit as it was when first instituted. The attendance upon religious services was not uncommonly large, and sugar par ties hero and there, drew many away from Ujo village. Secuhki) Bail. The Bellows Kalis Times understands that J. M.

II. . ins KUNintAL ont:QUii:.. Thesad announcement of the deatli of Dr. fcs It. D.tyofSt. Alb.nn, has al ready appeared in the columns of tho TitANSCitlPr. On Wedncjduy, April 7tlt, the last kind olllew of respect woie pnltl to ills lemalns by a lurfc gathering of the citizens of this village, and friends from abroad. At half past one o'clock i. m., the Masonic fraternity, of which the deceased had l ing been a zealous member, appeared in o.iluiii.t upon the stroct i'i front of th.dr hall in Union block, and papd up N.rtli Main street to Congress, from thence to the corner of Thomas and Hank ntr els to the late .esidence of the deceased. The fraternity pieceded the remains to the Congregational Church, followed by the mourning family and near friends of the departed in eanlages, and citlens in can luges and c 11 foot. At 12 o'clock tho lolling bell had ceas ed, and the large procession had reached the church. The body slip wore lilted with the mourning friends and the fra ternity, the lemaining slips with citi zens. Tlie solemn oxereibos were com menced by the choir, singing the hymn of the collection of Walts' and Select. TIil pastor, 11. C. Kiggs, read appropriate selections from the Sacred Scriptures and delivered a short dis course. The religious exercises in the Church weie closed by the choir ren dering hymn 00 1 select, of Walts and Select Hymns. The singing was in unison with the sad and sacred sur roundings, and the tone.j of the Church Organs sorrowfully continued the re frain. The remains of the deceased weie ex posed to view in the vestibule of tho church, and rich bonnets of flowers be decked the casket. The features of cur departed friend appeared quite natural, but very much emaciated by long sick ness. The body was wrapped in a suit of black, and we saw the likness of the Doctor, evon in death. The order of the pioce.-sion from l lie church Mas as follows : The members of Franklin Lodge No. 4. F. & A. M. St Albans, with delega tions from other Lodges in this vicinity, proceeded by the Lodge Tiler, and stew ards ; Next came the Officers of lOngles by Ledge Xo. SI; Olliccrs of Franklin Lodge, anC members of Champlain Chapter No. 1, St Albans. The next in order was the hearse containing the re mains, drawn by a beautiful span of black horses, with an escort a detail ot six knights Templar with drawuswords, from Lafayette Commando ry No. o, Swanton, commanded by Sir Knight, 1). J. Morrill. The six pall bearers on foot w jro next in older, It. Camp, Abner Forbes, G'co. (). Hunt, Hiram Pierce, Samuel IJrcck Jr. and C. E. Stevens; Then came the pastor Itov. II. C. Kiggs, the widow and three children of the deceased anil fami ly relatives in carriages. The resident physicians of St. Albans in carriages, concluded the more immediate mourn ers and were as follows: Doctors Chand ler, Fassett, Clark, Woodward, Branch and Plant. This procession which al ready attained great length was follow ed by many citizens in carriages and on foot.' The burial services at the grave were according to the ritual of the'Masonic Order, and were eonductcSJhy Park Davis, Esq. Junior (i rand Warden, of the ti rand Lodge of Vermont! Often had these same services boeSfheld in the village cemetery where ttifTrcmnins were deposited, and had been led by Dr. Day while living, but never with more solemnity than on this occasson. Eacli brother deposited hi. sprig of evergreen in tl.e now made grave and responded Alas my brother." The grand honors were given with tho following language "We cherish his memory hero wo commend his spirit to God who gave it wo consign his body to the Earth." These services so impressive wore those in which tho order seemed to take great Interest, but there were silent mourners there who felt the pangs of sorrow more keenly. It must be a con soling reflection however, for tho more intimate friends to witness tho tokens ol sincere friendship for the deceased, of tho fraternity. The exorcises at tho cemetery were closed with abonodiction by Bev. H. C. Biggs, the pastor. While tho weather was quite beauti ful over head, the walking was very disagreeable ; but tho attendance at both tho church and the grave was very large. Something over 100 masons were in tho the procession, and the ob stacles which were overcome, and the good order which was maintained throughout is duo in a great degivo to tho Conductor Dr. Oilman, the Marshal Capt. L. McD Smith and his deputy, Edward Tinker. The space which wo have already oc cupied is considerable, but tho character and associations of tho deceased demand it. A low words further may not bo Inappropriate. Whilo the character of tho deceased in his profession, and as a citizen, was of a high older, us evinced by tho attendance of tho profession in a body upon his funeral, and the very largo attendnnco of citizens, ills f-ocial relutions in tho Masonic fraternity were pre-eminent. He had 1 nig boon a mem ber of Franklin Lodgo and having pass ed through tho subordinate olllccs was Master of tho L-nlgo from 1801 to 1S03. He held the next highest ofilco in the Chapter from 1803 to 1S0S, and at his death va' the highest in command, his 0M00 being that of High Priest. For three years and at the time of his deatli h-3 wa-Dl drlot Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Lodge, and was a member of Lafayette Comniandery at Swanton. Verily ho must have been ho! 1 in high social e-'tcem by the large fia'ernity of which lie lias long be.-li an honored ai.d and zculoiK. member. At a special communication ofl'iaiik liu Lodge held oa Tuesdav evening Apiilllth 18(11), tho following preamble and resolutions were pa-s'ti, unani mously.
