As we ga.iod upon the solemn pageant the long line of carriages the mustering of troops, with arms reversed and muffled drum; the libit caparisoned steeds, which seemed almost to feel the melancholy duty they were performing j eveiy feeling f political hostility,, all harsh recollections, were merged it) trie sentiment of human sympathy. This was not the triumph for which we fought thia was not a victory at which we could exult I We thought only of t desolate mansion, a solitary wid'jw, a family in mourning. , : Man propos ti, says the proverb, but God disposes. This waa eminently the case here. In the very moment of fruition, in the very heig ht and fulness of possession, the deep laid plana or plots of a great party, were arrosted by the hand of Providence. Nee Devi inter tit, is also one of our maxims. Although wo believe that a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without permisaion from on High, we are not of those who imagine that the Deity is al ways interposing in behalf of huinao pasioos and designs. Yet as the friends of Gen. Harbiso habitually speak of his death as a providential in fliction, and thoir language was echoed Irom count, less pulpits, we insy be pardoned for turmimng th.it the hand of God was in the violation. )jr pur pose or wish is to turn the reflections which the reci collection offhe event suggests, to edifying ac aint. w . ' coi How many incidents have been crowded into a brief space I When we look back, it almost seems a dreara. The Uarrisburg Convention the hard cidef canvasi-he Democratic defeat the Whig inauguration and lastly, in one short mouth there after, that fatal catastrophe which was the "begin ningof the end." The first was a political Pan daiiionium, in which the meaner spirits, by superi or intrigue an management, triumphed over the higher. They were constrained lo sacrifice the leader of thuir choiceftudv boso claims were far paramount, to another less distinguished, however respectable. Tney separated with rankling disap pointment and gloamy forebodings, but witn a res olution to conquer by any and every means, how ever disreputable. They drew courage from 'lea pair. Their long banishment from power their blind unreasoning animosity to Democratic prioci pies, nd administration, gave them strength and j union which mutual harmony and respect could not have imparted. The cohesion of common hate, though temporary, is, while it ndures, a stronger cement than love. Thai was the keystone which bound tosethor the inharmonious materials of wnich the arch waa composed. This made them unite m the enthusiastic support of one whom they had tuflerod to linger for more Than tony"years' iii hopeless obscurity ; anebose pretensions m ny of them had cruelly scufljd, before it bccam-J tijeir poliey to adopt him. The canvass, and the manner in which it was conducted, were something new in.the history of our country. The reason of the people mti not addressed their adgrnent was not sought to ba convinced their hone-rt tecltngs wei n nppenl d to. Son"S. riotous essem bis ires, inflammatorv iisr- angucs, free quarters, gratuitous distribution of hq jors and provision, money iudtraotly umrsslly, nd sometimes directly applied, were tho means adopted to captivate popular support. It was a conspiracy, not only again n free Government, but the di mitv of human nature.
