THE DOCTRINE OF EVOLUTIOXL
Mr. Darwin has published another book
in which he gives some far-fetched, if
ingenious, illustrations of his pet theory
of evolution. His book is Entitled "The
Expression of the Emotions in Man and
Animals." Seme of the illustrations by
which he attempts to establish man' skin

Mr Darwin, iu the belief that man once
existed in a lower and animal-like condi
tion, where this expression is common.
The same is true, he holds, of a similar
movement of the facial muscles iu the
laughter of men and monkeys. The com
mon gesture of children in jerkingaway one
shoulder, when in a pettish mood, finds a
counterpart in the action of certain ani
mals. jWecping is traced hy Mr. Darwin
to the usual ouicry of children and animals
when hungry a prolonged screaming
filling the blood-Vessols of tho eye, con
tracting tho muscles, and affecting the
lachrymal glands. Tears, which are thus
traced to a natural source, eventually be
come habitual and imitative, which ac
counts for the common expression of pain
or grief in weeping. Pouting is one-of
the mot t curious illustration whurh Mr.
Darwin brings to his theory. Theprolrii
sion of the lower lip is the common mode
of expressing auger oraiscontent among
the young oraugs and chimpanzees.
Among civilized people, this expression
is still common with the children, and Mr.
Darwin has collected evidences that it is
uuivereal among the Chinese, Abyssinian",
Malays, Kafirs, Fiugoea, Hottentots, In;

FUNERAL OF HORACE GREELEY,
A Grand and Imposing j Ceremonial in
Honor qf the Distinguished Dead,
New Yoek, December 4, noon. Large
numbers have arrived. Many representa
tiyea of the press from various parts of the
country have arrived to participate in the
I Beautiful Decorations in Sombre.
New York, December 4, evening.
The interior of the Church of the Divine
Paternity jpresented to-day a sombrely
beautiful appearance. The pulpit was
heavily draped in crape, ami long lines of
crape'were suspended trom every pillar
atrd(every abutment of the beautiful Gothic
The several offerings in the church were
exquisite in design and appropriateness.
The principal ones among them were the
following? "I Know That My Redeemer
Liveth," red on white ground and green
body At the rear of the pulpit was a
sheaf of wheat from Chappaqua, in the
form of a crown, and suspeuded overhead
a pen and an axe. Around the pulpit were
innumerable offerings of flowers and
Wreaths. In front of the pulpit was a
beautiful design in flowers, with the words
in te center, "It is Done," on white
ground, purple letters and green border.
On a tablet to the left of the pulpit was a
floral wreath bearing the letters "II. G."
Then there were in flowers a plow from
the "Tribune" office, a qnilt from the
German Greeley Club, a basket of flowers
with crown and cross from tht Lincoln
Arcauian, "ncraia and otuer Cluos. ?
Crowds Hoclcing to the Church.
As early as 9 o'clock crowds flocked
to the church, but only those having
tickets succeeded in gaining admission.
By 10 o'clock the galleries', which had
been reserved for the ladies, were crowded.
The President and Notables Present.
, About a quarter before eleven o'clock
President Grant entered, and immediately
following him were Senator Henry Wilson,
Minister Washburne and Secretary of
War, Bt lknap. 1 hey took seats on the
right of the pulpit.
There were also present Carl Schorz,
Lyman Tremaine t and Vice-President

Promptly at eleven o'ch-ck the funeral
procession started trom air. bmclair s

After which Rev. Henry Ward Beecher
delivered the funeral oration. He said
no one dies whose death is not moment-

one has gone for a long time who will
carry with him so much reverence, so
much honor, so much devotion. Who is
this man who gets all these civil honors 1
VY no is t his man f . as he cue of those
great princes of wealth ? Was he of great
military renown ? No, and yet here are
men from every walk in life here is our
chief magistrate, here are the most pro
minent citizens from all parts of tire coun
try, gathered around the bier of this man,
who is now no more. Here we see that
criticism is disarmed. A little time ago,
and men's political passions were all
aroused (and we differ as much on politics
as ever), but here lies before us this man
who but a brief time 'ago was a great
leader in the land ; and why do men of all
parties gather here in reverence around
his remains 1 It is because the man is
greater than his politics. Here, to-day
between the two oceans theie is scarcely
man or child who has not felt the beneifi
cent character of Horace Greeley. Horace
Greeley gave thestrength of his life to
education, to hnui amity, and especially to
the poor, who conldfiittle help themselves.
He had a great heart that longed for
sympathy. Though his life may not be
remembered by those memorials which
erry other men's names down, he' will be
remembered throughout this land for those
great qn all ties of mind and heart which
make his character commensurate as it
were with the genius of this great Repub-

Eulogy of Dr. Cliapin.
After an ode by a quartette from St.
Francis Xavier's Church was succr. Dr.
Chapiti said : To-day; in the freihness of
his power, Horace Greeley la laid by the
side of his beloved wif. As a pastor and
a personal friend, "I cannot now here at
tempt to depict theVorth acd greatness
of the departed journalist. Horace Gree
ley's epitaph is written u. homes through
out the length and breadth of the land.
Where are now all party and religious
differences! I ask you to consider here
what it is that brought forth so much lovo
for this man. It was not his official posi
tion. He held none. It was Tiot even his
unquestionable genius. It was the attrac
tion of pure and simple goodness. The
hundreds of toil-worn men who yesterday
waited for hours to look upon the face of
the dead were not drawn there by any
jnere curiosity 1 hey went to look at the
features of one who had been their con
sistent arid untiring friend. Horace
Greeley stuck for what he believed to be
right, until mind and heart gave way. He
lies dead upon the 6eld. Let me remind
you that Horace Greeley's life was a re
markably practical one. No man, it
seems to me, was given to more practical
pnrposrs than he. How many lives has
he stimulated to wholesome energy ? How
many great interests of education and
science and progress mourn him now 1 All
these tributes to-day testify to the recog
nition of the virtues of this great and good

murs of applause. Let me take occasion
to urge Mr. Greeley "s views of Christianity.
He lived on the essential truths of Chris

weary heart and died, weary with the
turmoil of life. Does the truth c-rhe to

THE VILLAGE ANGEL.
Emily' Wharton vas the pet and prid
of Rriverdale. Tlie old men reverently
called her the "village angel," the young
men admired her by day and dreamed of
her by night ; and eveu her companions
of her own sex felt for her s pure regard,
tree from the least taint of envy orjeal

if you, dear reader, had seen her, no time
could cfl'tce the memory of her glossy
brown hair, her deep, tender eyes, of n
dark gray, and her fair, round face, with
gentleness and patience shining from
every feature You might deny that she
was really pretty, bat you would have to
admit that she possessed charms superior
to those of personal loveliness.
What little of romance there had ben
in Emily's quietly happy" lif.-, she bid
made herself, while quietly working for
quite another object. Her parents bling
the wealthiest people in the tuwn, and her
own heart prompting her to take the mom
worthy advantage of this blessing, she had
often helped those in need, and accorn-
unshed it in such, a ouiet wav that die
avoided the ostentation of charity, and
caused the recipients to feel a thankfulness
unburdened by any senso of humiliating
It was one summer afternoon, when
sittins with her mother on the niazza of
their elegant cottage, that Emily saw a
young man staggering under the weight
of a heavy banow filled with vegetables.
He was coming up the road, aud as he
drew near sho saw that his face was very
pale, and bore only too plainly the mark
of care and sorrow. She watched him as
he advanced, her face revealing tha sud
den syrapath which the appearance had
inspired in her heart.
Reaching the houe directly opposite,
the young man let his barrow, rest upon
the walk, and opened the gate ; then mov
ing forward with his load, he essiyed ro
enter, but the gate swung to, barring his
progress. Again he tried, and with the
same result. Wiping the perspirati-M:
from his brow, he looked about far some
thing with which to hold the gate in posi
tion, and at that moment a slight, girlish
figure .swept by him, and a sweet voice
said : "I will hold it while you come in."
Surprised, and not a little embraased,
he regarded her for a momeat iii silence ;

Five years had pissed since the night
when Emily gave Tom her pro mice at
