K Julian, in the Fhke Pkss of April 28th, itj waa remarked that Lin short Lie was by no ueana without fruit of the bent character; (bat it waa in many respects too remarka ble to be allowed to pass without spociul commemoration; and the purpose was de clared to make an attempt in that direction in the next issue of the paper. It waa aoon perceifed, however, that this task could not be worthily accomplished under tlion ex isting circumstances, and henue it waa de ferred. But ecarcoly for an hour since has that purpose been f orgotton, and now, 'on B the approach of his birth-day, which occunJ on to-morrow, when this paper will be mainly circulated, we feel that the appropri ate time has .come for the fullfilment of this sadly pleasing duty. Alas,on the day here tofore so joyously commemorated, we can only lay this poor wreath from the flowew cf memory and affection upon his grave I Thera are other reasons for this tribute to the memory of the child.
