The Burial of Washington Irving—Impressive
and Solemn Scene at Tarrytown
—Funeral Obsequies.
The funeral of Washington Irving took place
on Thursday at Tarrytown, N. Y. It was an
occasion long to be remembered. Business
was suspended ; stores were closed ; from al
most every house mourning drapery was hung;
the bells of the oburohes tolled lor tome hours.
From the surrounding country and from New
Tork and other cities, thousands of people as
sembled in and about the ohuroh, where the
funeral services took place. A procession, more
than a mile in length, followed the remains of
the deeeased to the grave, where, besides many
of the most distinguished men of New York
City, were nearly all the Episcopal clergy, in
oluding the Provisional Bishop of the Diocese.
The New York Common Council and the Trus
tees of the Astor Library were present; and
the Historical Sooiety was well represented.
The sarvlses in tho oliqrca and at the grave
were conducted by the Rev. Dr. Creighton,
pastor of the ohurch at Tarrytown, of which
Mr. Irving was a member.
From a lengthy aooount in Friday's 2W6une
we oondenae such particulars of the funeral as
we deem of interest;
The remains were on Thursday morning,
for the first time, placed in the coffin, and were
lying In the north-west parlor of the quaintly
gabled cottage, familiar to those who have
loved to read of Irving. To all was granted a
long, last look at the precious dust, ere it left
forever the spot where nis years were so ripe
and lustrous. Very few were present, except
the immediate family connections, it being
understood that no servioes were to be bold at
the house.
The body was robed in a plain blaok suit,
with white cravat and oollar, and as the light
struck the features of the deceased, it seemed
almost as if he were sleeping so calm and
smooth had the touch of death left them.
The face was thinner than we had seen it, bnt
there was the same repose, and the same im
aginative, noble brow. At the left of the
coffin hung the oelebrated portrait by Jarvls;
by its side were the oenter-tablo as be left it,
ooverod with books and his favorite ebair,
standing in the position where he oooupied it
last. It aoemed as if the grief of the bereaved
ones was tempered even there and then by the
thought of bis well rounded life, and tbe
euthanasy that was his lot.
At about 12 M. the family proeeBsion left
Sunnyside, with the body, winding through
the lovely grounds to the east, and then two
miles north, ovor a road linod with beautiful
trees and mansions, to the village of Tarry
town. Tai FcNinAb Procession. About 2 P. M.
the procession was formed to convey tho re
mains to their laat reiting-plaoe. It moved
in the following order: 1st. Tho Clorgy; 2d.
Pallrbearers; oj. The Hearse; 1th. Relatives
and invited guests ; 6th. Tho Common Coun
cil of the City of New York; oth. Scholars of
the Irving Institute, to the number of about
one hundred, on foot; 7th. Citizens in general.
The procession itself was about one-quartor of
a mile in length, and many hundreds, beside,
had already gathered in the Cemetery prior to
its arrival. Moving still northward, with the
silvery Hudson and the nestling village ever
in view, it passed the Andre Monument on
the left, and so on for a mile, to the lovely
hill where the Tarrytown Cemetery lslooated.
The streets through which it moved were
draped with mourning, as, indeed, were the
shops and dwellings throughout the place ;
the flags at the river side were at half-mast ;
the church-bells tolling, and all business ap
peared to be suspended for the day.
Mount Pleasant Cemctsev. This burying
ground is romantically looated on a hill over
looking the famous "Sleepy Hollow," where
the bridge of the "Headless Horseman" is
still pointed eut. Near the entrance is the
old Dutch Church alluded to by Mr. Irving in
hie works. It was erected In 1090, by "Fred.
Phillipse and Catherine Van Courtlandt, his
wife," so says tbe ancient tablet. The lot of the
Irving family has a south elevation on the
south-west side of the ground, and commands
the loveliest view of the Hudson anywhere
obtainable. In it are already deposited the
ashes of William Irving and wife the parents
of Washington; his brothors, Peter and Wil
liam, and tho wife of the latter, and the wife
and three children of General Eb. Irving, the
surviving brother of the deceased.
Tnr BsnEAVED Family. General Ebenezer
Irving, the surviving brother of the deceased,
is eighty-six years old, and was consequently
Washington's senior by ten years. lie feels
keenly the shock of hia brother's death, hav
ing thought that, in the course of nature, his
own summons would have been the first. His
three unmarried daughters, Catharine, Julia
and Mary, are the nieces who have kept house
for the deceased, and tenderly cheriBbed and
lightened his declining ago. Another daugh
ter, Sarah, is the wile of William Grinnell,
Esq., of Havana, N, Y. His son, tbe Rev.
Pierre M. Irving, of Brighton, Staten Island,
was tho last person to whom Mr. Irving spoke
before his death. The Rev. Theodore Irving,
also of Staten Island, is another son and
there are two others whose names we did not
obtain. Pierre P. Irving, Esq., nephew- of
the deceased by an older Mother, and brother
of Mrs. Moses H. Grinnell, forms one of the
bereaved family of Sunnyside.
Ma. IaviNu's Last House. Those who
have seen much of Mr. Irving, for some lime
past, say that he retained to the last his erect
ness of posture and noble bearing. A few
days before his death, while suffering painfully
from the astbmatlo attack which hastened it,
he stooped a very little only, as if from weak
ness in the ohest. His death was wrongly re
ported as having- taken place at 8 o'olock on
Monday' evening. .He conversed with his
usual spirits, and mingled in the family
amusements, until about 10 o'clock, when he
rose to retire, and had prooeeded as far as his
bed-chamber, on the second story, before he
fell In death.

ving could well abide the judgment of his fel-low-townemon.
Not alone - the wealthy, well

to whom he was so well known, were among
the truest mourners that followed him to his
The genial nertonnef the broad, loving, hu
man heart of Washington Irving Improssed
alike all elasses that knew him. Many a one
was heard to speak, yesterday, of his gentle
ness of bearing, his kindly words to the suffer
ing, his clear grey eyes, his sunny smile.
" Sir," said one old resident of Irvlogton, who
had greeted him almost dally for many years.
" the poor of this vicinity have lost the best
friend they ever had. There never was an ap
plicant for relief at Sunnyside, whom Mr. Ir
ving knew to be worthy, that went away empty
handed. He visited the sick in affliction, and
waa a friend to the widow and the fatherless.
No one hereubout can aay a word exoept In bis

The -Rfiuieroflate date, says: "Mrs. Moran
had been living in tho house where she died
for some years, and often locked herself op
for days at a time, and never allowed any of
her neighbors to visit her. Notwithstanding
that she had plenty of this world's goods, she
lived apparently in extreme poverty. Some
of her neighbors, not seeing her since Satur
day last, were influenced to Inquire into the
matter. They found her on her bed, dead,
nd from the decay of her body she had evi
dently been dead several days. We believe
that she was a native of this place, and of

Anot&ib Ladt Gat Spaiikb. Lady Stam
ford, who, it seems, oonsiders herself, and with
every reason, too, a first-rate steeple-chaser,
finding few can surpass 'her dsring, or defeat
her in a long run, has, (says the Court Cir
eular,) with the chlvalrio mettle of more
primitive days, challenged another lady, re
nowned for her oross-oountry daring, and who
presumes herself a mighty huntress before
her liege lord, to an equostrian tournament
aorosa a rather difficult oountry for 600 a

this interesting wsger is in the oounty of
Rrv. Hesbv A. Wist, jb. An exohauge
says of this young clergyman, second son of
the Governor of Virginia: "He has already
taken a high stand among the pulpit orators
of his age. Ilis sermons (which are delivered
without notes, or at least auy reference to
them) are remarkable for their terseness of
style, and chaste and fervid eloquence setoff
by a face of unmistakable intellectuality, a
voice at on oo Jeep, soft, and impaasi"ned, and,
a line delivery. Mr. Wise is now tho pastor
in charge of the Church of tho Savior iu
West Philadelphia."
Drunkenness i Avstbalia. The author ol
Southern Liyhtt and Shallow says: "My own
profession in Australia affords many awful
instances of the same charaoter as those I have
cited of line, regal minds drowned like the
royal Clarence, in a wine oaek, I have scon a
man, with a heart as fine and tender as a
woman's, and a genius and scholarship which,
I think, would be considered rare in the high
est oircles in England, lying drunk and insen
sible in a tavern, his pockets drained to their
last farthing, and his Apollo lips pressed upon
the dust."

We have raised eleven ships-of-the-line, anil

corvettes, gun-brigs and steamers." He gives
a Bad account of the immorality of tho people
now inhabiting Sebastopol, and expresses an
earnest longing to once more enjoy our Sew

be required to accomplish tho undertaking of
the company.

In the case of Ogier vs. The Pennsyl

week, the jury rendered a verdict in favor of
Mrs. Ogier, the plaintiff, of $10,250, The

the spot. Mr. Bond, who was also injured,
was awarded $500 damages.

he did not petition Governor Wise for the

About the Election of Speaker.
Wabhinoton, December 312 M. Nearly
nil the South American members of the House
are now in conference. The probability is
that they will not rote for the plurality reso
lution relative to the election or Speaker, but
put forward their own candidate upon the
suffrages of other numbers of the House.
The Democrats will also probably agree not
to vote for the plurality resolution, the design
of many being to unite these two parties upon
an Amerioan oandidato.
Ovor eighty members were present at the
Republican Conference held this afternoon.
Mr. Petit, of Indiana, presided, and Mr. Mo
Pherson, of Pennsylvania, Secretary.

one, lasted one or two hours. Some of tbe
most radical Republicans expressed their wil
lingnoss to vote for an Amerioan or antl-Le-rompton
Clerk if a Republican Speaker was
eleoted. It was finally determined not to oall
an Opposition, or a straigthout Republican
caucus, but that every member should go into
the House and vote for his choice, as was done
lour years ago. E. Jay Morris, Millwurd,
and other Northern Americans wore present.
