Sl'NDAY, JANl'AKY 20. 1SU0.
We hnve been much interested in tin
rending of a pamphlet under the ill hvi
title written by the Rev. Charles R.
Trent, rector (if the Church of the Arch
angel, New York City. The subject it
one which deeply louchcs Immunity in nl
its relations to the (lend, enlisting the in
fections, involving the sentiment of pride
und then, by great descent, coining tliiwi
to practical considerations ol the hcaltl
of the living. The first are the natural
spontaneous, predominant ones; tin
other only arise under the pressure oi
increased population when the dispost
tion of the dead passes beyond tin
realms of sentiment, and goes into tlmsi
of practical statesmanship. Then nrisci
a conflict which may have begun, and in
doubt did begin, in a very early stage o
human history, when the necessities o
safety of person and security of proper!
enforced that aggregation of human Ik
ings that made up the enormously pop
ulous cities of ancient times. Sciitiiueni
was stifled by utility, anil the disposi
tion of the bodies of the dead was con
trolled by practical reference to the wel
fare of the living. Among some people?
the voice of nature was not uKogclhct
unheard. In I'gvpt n vague idea ot !
future state probably suggested tha
idea of embalming which indefinitely pre
nerved the mortal frames, bringing then
down to these remote modern times si
n hideous travesty, and humiliating a.-i
tire on mortality. Other nations, lc
hopeful or less credulous, and apparenth
less sensitive or less affectionate, mailt
quick haste to efface nil vestige of th
dend except what was included in tin
handful of ashes remaining after crein.'i
tion, to be piously treasured in einerat
urns, or scattered broadcast to tit
winds, it did not npteur to matte
which. Others ngain introduced tin
loathsome and contemptuous practice
still observed among the l'arsces, of ex
posing dead bodies on the tops of SK-ei.-tll
prepared towers, to lie consumed by tin
fowls of the air in orgies so foul am
filthy as to degrade the sentiment of !iu
ninnity to its lowest depths, mid put r
on exact level of the last stage of tin
beasts that perish.
Hut we must refer to the more tiniver
sal practice, that which prevails nraoiij
most of the moderns, that which is oh
served by us, the general one of burial ii
the earth, and that which maintains it
the cities mid towns. It is not so niticl
the social int-tinct, which in life uggre
gates the living with the living as a m
ccssity that brings the dead to the deai
in one common burial ground, from gen
erntion to generation, until, in process
of time, there comes to pass such a eon
fusion of remains that identity is lost .
nnd this fact among others has led tt
the variety of suggested reforms in sep
ulture; for if the grave does not sccun
distinctive immunity, why pcrivtiiatc a
method which falls short of many of in
most cherished expectations? lletweei
the surviving living and the cherished
dead there is perpetuated, or lioK-d ti
lie perpetuated, an unbroken link, to bt
kept bright by carcot the sacred grave
watered daily with tears kept vcrdaui
with the living turf, brightened with tin
rich nnd fragrant flowers. What, if in
addition to the hideous transformation
going on beneath the cnith, the bus
work of the worm, the steady process o;
decay, the gradual absorption of tht
mortal frame, there should lie in the saint
spot and it is often the case in thickly
tennnted graveyards antecedent re
mains of bodies unknown to the mourn
ers, those connected by no possibility oi
tender association ? And then the pious
care resolves itself into an almost Itidi
crous worship of it false idol, or an empty
Perhaps this very confusion, mid this
inevitable existence of a "valley of dry
bones" in every long tenanted cemetery,
has led more potently than any other in
fluence to the abandonment of the
churchyard grave, nnd the general re
sort to the rural or adjacent cemetery.
And to this we give our preference lie
yond any other form of the disposition
of the dead. There is no such pressure
upon us as there is upon the huge cities
where increase of the living presses con
stantly upon the reservations for the
dead, involving inevitably detrimental
unitary results. In our smaller South
ern towns the suburban cemeteries can
be used for many generations, to he
cherished and beautified as the silent
cities of the dead. Through its streets
we walk silently, reverentially or tear
fully, The link between us and the dead
remains strong and bright, and every
thing invites so to keep it. All the repul
sive suggestions of the grave are ban
ished by the solemn stillness, the eloquent
memorials, the carpeted verdure, the
cheerful flowers. We walk among these
last resting places at among the abodes
of friends from whom he have just
parted, who have just gone before, whom
we shall soon rejoin.
Possessing such places of repose for
those we loved, we feel happy in the
thought that we shall never bt compelled
to the resorts which, the best of them,
harrow the human heart with its teeth
of agonizing grief cremation, which
turns at once to nshes the forms around
which our affection had been so deeply
twined, or the alternative suggested by
the writer of the pamphlet before us,
ilcssicntiug them, and setting them up in
specially designed places, perpetually
preserved, a hideous mockery of our
griefs its imagination vainly tries to ani
mate those iliieil-iip frames with the
warmth and animation that in their
lives won to them our dearest affections;
perhaps at some future time tn meet at
the hands of irreverent interest the fate
that has befallen the Iigyplian mum

The Albany correspondent of the New

of a member of the New York Legislature
It is a picture as much physical as mental

otid enough in crying out "lay on .Mac

Yc quote only one paragraph lit pics

the approval of this and similar conven
tions: "Hut nil this must lie done by the colored

When we made our comments on
Ingulls' sieeeh yesterday morning, we
did so without having more of the
siecell before us than was conveyed
in n telegraphic report, compara
tively full as to the first pari, very
meagre as to the ol her. We arc glad to
find that our conclusions are fortifn-d by
the opinions ol so able a journal us the
Baltimore Sun, of the 2th, drawn ufler

Sotith under reconstruction abundantly
proved. Senutor Ingulls sees nil this
with clear vision. He makes it plain
that if he lived in the South he would
favor a thorough-going solution of the
race oroblem. As he lives where society
and prosH'hty nrc not imperiled by the
presence of the African in great numliers,
what he advises practically is thut the
South should voluntarily duss through a
second reconstruction era. Though he
knows I letter and shows it in Ins speech-
he asserts, in conclusion, that the race

jects them all and calls lor a fifth
"justice." Ity justice he menus allowing
the African to vote freely. As he already
beyond question voles freely in the
border and ninny Northern Stittcs, with
out dispelling "race antagonism," the
Senator's reasoning is clearly at fault.
