To give you an example of tolly and extravagance in the present admin istration of the government, which the wise and sober-minded ol our own and all succeeding ages do and will consider as the “miserable abortion” ot political fanaticism, we need only name the Pana ma Congress: concerning which however, our surprise might be expected to be somewhat diminished, by attending to the bold, unprecedented, and unconstitu tional language empoyed by our present Chief Huler, when in his first Message to Congress he expressed his sentiments on ibis subject.

L. DAVIDSON, Chr'n. the dead wrrc seen. On rach side of ihc bier, stood large waxen candles, and round were ««tanding hundreds of friends, f-ach bearing a lighted taper in his harid. Half an hour or more, the priests al er- nately recited the funerjil service, and at short intervals numbers recited a sacred song. The scriptures were f>pen, ai,d from the ancient Greek read, the hour ig coming, in the v hich all \hat are in their graves shall hear his voice, artd come forth. An aged priest, with a long hairy head, standing by the side of the dead, in their own native dialect, then addressed the people. He stood theie, he said, to speak for her who could no longer speal; for herself, and for her to forgive any, who might ever have injured her. If she had herself injured any, he hopeii ihey would freely forgive her. The as sembly with united voices, responded, “ we forgive, and may she also be for given of her God,” crossing themselvej and bowed. The crowd ihei) parted,ana ihe relatives stood near. The eye of ihe husband was now, for the last time, fixed on the object of his aflections. Thnc? he crossed himself, then bowed and kiss ed the cheek now cold in f^eath ; and so feeling, so afll'ectionate was the last fart- well, that no one could pronounce ii ce remony merely. The deceased was thei^ borne to the depository of the dead, and when laid in the tomb, the priest poured oil on her head, repeating one of the Psalms of David, the earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof i the worlds and Ihqi that dwell therein.

Such an example of Ihe txertion of a th groe ol intellect in cattle, led to an enquiry f the hoy re>;anhng the circumstances of the case. The boy informed the writer of this article, that only one of the cattle came first to his n sciic, and attacked the hull, and in a little time the others came, ;is if to the assistar.ce of the first. This gr:itehil and gi-nerous animal had hi en, during the Iasi winter, in rather slcklv condi tion, during which time the boy had’ iiaid it consiJtrable attention, giving It hansdhill of corn, and otherwise aihiiinistering to its roin- foriH, which attention it basso noblv repaid, by rescuing its btnctactor froia a violent and shocking death.
