Admiral DuPont was the beau a deal of
a naval officer. Devoted to his profession,
be labored assiduously to build up the
reputation of the navy, and was one of its
chief ornaments. The preparation of
that branch of the public service for the
work which devolved npon it in aonse r
quence of the rebellion, was due mpre to
m than to any other man in tbit de
partment of the government.
Possessing all those virtues which adorn
public character, he was in private life a
pure and Widest Christian gentleman.
Sam peur f turns reproche could be in
scribed as the- legend of his arms. In
his death, the Country has lost one of its
noblest patriots, and the State of Delà

of her best and greatest citiiens.

some of his experiences as a diplomat in

history of tho poor Irish girl "Ellen,"

oompany with auoihvr person, Walter Cnrpenso.,
was on his way home. The latter had probably
been indulging a little too freely and drovo ofl

Run, about a quarter of a mile from the Street
Rond, and five from West Chester, they
off tho end of the bridge, and both wero
into the stream—Beuglesa under the vehicle.
Carpenson, with great difficulty, succeeded in
getting to the shore, and commenced hallooing
for help, which drew tu his
gentlemen who were near by fishing. The
horse plunging and jerking the carriage about
kept Beugles» under it, and by the time aid
arrived and he was taken on ahore, life was
