The following local paragraph from
the Baltimore Gazette, of Wednesday

Corpus Christ!. ,
This festival of the Roman Catholic
Church will be observed .in St Peter's
church to-day by the celebration of
mass at 1 o'clock in the morning. The
festival is derived from -the article of
Catholic Faith, which teaches that the
humanity ot the Saviour is really and
substantially present in the host conse
crated at mass, and -preserved in the
tabernacle nron the Catholic altar. The
institution of the sacrament was always
pplp.hrn.ted with solemn thanksgiving on
Maundy Thursday in Holy Week. But
that time being mostly taken up with
the commemoration of the sorrowings
sufferings of the passion, a solemn fes
tival was established by the zeal of pi
ous persons to celebrate this mystery,
It was first ordered to be celebrated in
a synod held at Liege in 1246. Pope
Urban, in 1264 commanded it to be ob
served by the whole Church - with a
solemnity equal to the four great
festivals oi tne year.

r Extract from a Communication to The Observer.
The next day (Sunday) he was put in
to a very common pine coffin, which
was about three inches too shallow ; his
shoes had to be taken off, and part of
the cottonTfrom under his head before
the lid could be placed on. He was
buried in a gray suit that he left on
shore while in swimming. As there
was no lining in the coffin, Mrs. Solo
mon furnished a sheet in which he was
wrapped. His body was conveyed to
the potter's field on a one-horse dray, ac
companied by no one except the driver.
Mr. bolomon instructed the drayman to
go a back way, so as to avoid being seen.
Mr. Solomon and Mr. Rogers who was
in bathing with Benton when the lat
ter was drowned started to the potters
field soon after the dray left When
they suTived at the burial ground, the
keeper or the cemetery and his hands
were filling up the grave. Mr. L. S.
Rogers is from KnoxviJle, Tennessee,
ano says he never wants to die in Char
lotte unless he has money enough to
give him a decent burial.
Mr. Benton left two dollars and two
cents in money, a silver double-case
watch, gold pin, sleeve buttons and a
pocket knife, besides a box of valuable
tools adapted to his trade.

To the Editor of The Observer:
Shall the poor that die lay and rot
without a burial? A woman in our
city who has been sick a long time died
on Tuesday with no money on hand.
Was it no one's business to attend to
her burial ? In such a case ought not
the authorities of the place make some
provision to remove her to the ceme
tery and provide a coffin and a grave ?
Can health be perpetuated if dead bo
dies remain a week or more in a state
of decomposition? But this state of
things must ensue unless some private
persons who may be entirely unable
make a sacrifice and provide for the
burial. Would it not be much better
for the whole county or city to bear this
expense than to impose it on a few free
ones who are already ridden to death ?
A bone for some one to crack.
