How deplorably have we felt the loss of the forecast, the courage, and the noble spirit of concession and Con)' promise, each so conspicuous in the various positions which be occupied and adorned. Most signally did these cbnr- acteristics' illustrate his career, from 1811, when, on the first day of his ap pearance as a member of the United States House of Representatives, he was chosen' its presiding othcer, until tb memorable struggle of 1850-51, upon the compromise measures, when his genius and eloquence came to his country s help, with a vigor and brilliancy which even he bad never surpassed. - Louisville will be sacred ground that day 1 sons and grandsons ot the lathers, who by their valor achieved independ ence, and by their wisdom founded the republic, representee every State, old and new, will, I confidently trust, stand together arouud that statue, to be inspired by fresh emotions of mutual love, ; re newed respect for each other's rights and a firmer, closer clinifing to the Con stitution, which has been and is the sole basts of well grounded hope; the only rock of safety.

VThen the veil is withdrawn from tbe statue of Mr. Clay, there will be re vealed to the . eyes of the assembled thousaaui the form of a Venerated states man, whose fame is the common prop crty of the whole country. All that genius could do to make it fit present ment of the great American has doubt less been accomplished by an artist in whose growing reputation we all feel a just pride. But alas, it will be only marble, lhe man has passed away. Ihe great intellect and the graater sou! no longer find an impersonation in'our midst Those lips that spoke to ns of the country, of the whole country, of its interests, its glory, and its peril, are mute. Never since tbe organization of the Govern ment has there been such a field for statesmanship as that which our country exhibits to-day. If we could bring Mr. Clay back for a day, how potential and how beneficent would be his influence. Or "if, in the presence of his statue, we ceuld revive his policy that policy so essentially American, so wise, so com prehensive, so conciliatory we might well hope to witness the restoration of tranquillity to the country, and the re inauguration of the supremacy of tbe Constitution. It was at once the re proach and the glory of Mr. Clay that he could always find a solution for the trou bles of the country by a compromise between conflicting views. Extreme men, whose vision never extended beyond the horizon that bound a section ; and whose Datriotism Wa limited by narrow geographical lines, charged him with a want of proper regard for the Constitu tion, because he was ready to yield some thing to the exigencies which threatened to unsettle the fonndations of the Gov ernment Hut who will not now admit that if this wise statesmanship had been brought to bear apon the great contro versy which arrayed States again( each Other in belligerent lines, in a conflict hicu has so lately shaken the Uovern- ment to its very foundations, the country vould to-day be prosperous and happy T Our troubles are not yet ended.

In the olden times it was customary for the ladies of India to bathe In tbe costume which' Eve wore before tbe fall. And on one occasion when Furbuttee went to perform her ablutions, it hap pened that that in fact, " not to pat too fine a point upon it, she did sot always practice the oommendable New England virtue of cleanliness, and was consequently in . what impolite people would call a very dirty state." Ip these days cleauly people in India hatha at least onee a day, but in those days prob ably, cleanliness was not invented; so the lady was, after all, perhaps, . only " following the fashion." At any rate, she took what my Brahmin friend called " the dirt off her body," and made an image of it ; and being the wife of a god she possessed the power of giving life to inanimate objects. To this image she gave life, and told it to watch at the door of her bath, hot on no account te admit any person who might wish to en ter. While engaged in bathing, her hus band, Dlahadco, came into tbe building, and fiadiag a young man watching, at the doors.be suspected the fidelity of his wife, and cut off tbe watcher's head with a blow of his sword. He then entered the bathing apartments, and finding his wife, immediately related to her what he bad done, rarbnttee bnrst into tears, and told her husband how she bad formed the yoing man, and that, as she had formed him of her own body, he was in reality her son. Mahadeo.on learning this. was very sorry for what he had done, and wished to repair his error by restoring the young man to life ; but being unable to find the head, he cut off the head of a dead elephant which lay near, and stock if on theyenng man's body. It grew there, the body was restored to life; and this is the reason why unnputtee pos. sesses an elephant s head. This deity, it may be added, is worshiped at every ceremony of the nindoo, no matter whut it maybe.
