Time is erer onward marching,
Chasing all that's in bii course;
Mirth and sorrow flee befors him,
Often knowing not their source.
We rejoice in sunny gladness,
Mingled too with gaudy prlJe;
Time now grasps our dreams of pleasure,
Next to launch them on his tide,
Vonth claims the present as its own,
Pportl ng 'mid life's passing mirth;
Vet to learn that time in silence,
Brings a brighter clime th an ear th.
Fruits and flowers lose their fragranco,
Verdant forests all their hue;
Frigid pearls of endless nnraber,
Wither all that's fuir to view.
Distant worlds beyond our vision,
All must full before his sway,
Liko the mingling rays and shadows
Of an evening past away.
Crnel are his daily actions;
Wit and loro are favoured not
Guilt and shame, alike with goodness,
Are by Time with ardor sought.
Surely Time is aught but friendly,
For intrigueing as he does:
Hymen's dupes think all is pleasuro,
When 'tis but sunset glows.
But we '11 take the given lesson
From the richest fount of peace;
Moil no more in clouded sorrow,
But desponding thoughts release.
Character of Chief Justice Gibson.

Extract from hit r.Jogi on Judge Gib
ton, p. 107.
His manner of reaching hi conclusions,
nnd writing his opinions was well known.
It is believed he took little, part in the
consultations of the bench, communica
ting liia views usually in clioi t, detached
sentences, sometimes not at all, but when
he did, hitting the exact point, and dif
fusing additional light on tho principles
in question. When appointed to deliver
t! e opinion, he generally mado an exam
ination of the authorities, and sometimes,
it must be admitted, too brief nn examina
tion. His habit was then to think chiefly
without the aid of his pen, nnd out of the
roach of books. He did this in his cham
her, on the street, at the table, sometimes
on the bench during the progress of other
causes, and not unfrccjuently in tho pub
lic room of his hotel. Persons who ap
proached him on these occasions, were
struck with, nnd sometimes offended at
his abstract and careless air. To those
who knew what he wasdoing, he frequent
ly complained of his difficulty in deter
mining on what principles to pitch the
cause- without mentioning it particularly,
lie did all the labor of thought before ho
commenced to write, and ho never wrote
until he got ready. Before ho began the
very sentences were formed in his mind,
and when he assumed the pen, he rarely
laid it aside until tho opinion had been
completed. The bold, beautiful, and legi
ble character of his hand-writing, audits
freedom from erasure, induced those who
road his opinions in manncript, to suppose
that he transcribed them, but this was
rarely, if ever done. ho had too little
time, and too much horror of tho pen to
attempt it. Such a method of writing
undoubtedly possessed great advantages.
It gave his line logical powers full play.
It contributed to that condensation which
forms one of the distinctive features ofhis
writings. It enabled him to proceed with
directness right to his conclusion, and to
make every thing point to it from the firnt
sentence to tho last. No repetition oc
curs. We see each idea but onco, and
need not count on even seeing & shadow
of it, more than onco. Having always
something to do ahead, tho pen spent no
more timo on the thought in hand than
was necessary to complete it. Ho knew
precisely where he had to end before be
gining, and ho avoided all difficulties of
those writers who began to write when
they begin to think and sometimes before
it, and who produce works resembling,
for the most part, tho patch-work embla
zoned on the best beds of German house
keepers, and giving evidence not to bo
mistaken, of the exact places at which they
have been joined, and of tho diverse and
heterogeneous materials out of 'vhich they
have been composed. Tho most casual
render of Judgo Gibson's opinions must
have observed how seldom he professes to
give any history of tho decided cas cs, and
how invariable ho puts the decision upon
some leading principle of tho law, refor
ing but to a few cases Cor tho purjioso of
illustration, or to show their exception to
the general rule, and how all this is done
with the ease and skill which betoken the
hand of a master.
As a jurist, Judge Gibson was ardently
attached to tho principles of the common
law. His love of them beams in hit wri
tings as affection will beam in tho human
countenance. Ho not only looked on
them with the admiration of an artist, as
symmetrical and beautiful parts of a great
fabric, but ho regarded them as the best
rampart which the common sense of man
kinn has yet thrown up against the des-

man ahould rival tho uattiarchs in the
tertnofhU natural life. From tho day
when Lord Erskine uttered his quiet hu
mor on the subject, down to the publica
tion of Bleak House, the severest sarcasms
on this state of things have been fiunij in-
i to the faces of lawyers, without the possi
bility of turning the point of ono of them,
i The Pennsylvania system of law is among
i the few that have been measurably free
from tho reptoaches which tho learned

that tho mind of a man liko Judge Gib.
son, who had done so much to advanco
this sytom, and who had witnessed the
strides which tho lonI world seems mak
ing towards it, should f-el somo pride in
perpetuateing it. With this spirit, it is
consistent, that when our legislature adopt
ed certain equity remedies, nnd provided
for separate equity proceedings, ho bhould
endeavor to carry them fully into practice.
An opposite course, if ho could have pur
sued it, would havo caused disquiet and
disaster. Besides this, whatever he might
have thought, he was not a man to set
himself up against what seemed to bo n
useful reform. He had seen delects which
some of these remedies seemed to supply,
and he applied tl em in the very spirit m
which the profession and the legislature
had called them into being. So success
fully was this done, that with all his at
tachment to the common law, it has not
been unfrequently to hear from those
most devoted to the equity system, the ad
mission that he would have mado a better
chancellor than he was a judgo. It is per
tinent to remark here that he had no un
due fondness for civil law. His mind was
too liberal for the mind of ajscholar is al
ways liberal in its appreciation of learn
inc not to admiro tho beauty, wisdom
and simplicity of many parts of that sys-
'teni, and its ndaption to the state of socie
ty in which it has grown up ; but it, must
I be admitted that ho ever and anon cast a
suspicious glance on the effort of Judge
Story, and the writers of that school, to
infuse its principles into our cherished
common law. He could not have denied
! that many of the branches of our law have
been enriched in this mode, but ho was
'alive to tho danger of pushing such im
provements too far. I need refer the
reader only to the opinions delivered in
Lyle vs. Richards, 9 S. A. K. ."22, and in
Logan vs. Mason, G V. & S. 0, in proof of
the existence of these views in the mind
of their author.
j In summing up the personal character
of Judge Gibson, I do not tnenn to present
h: in as faultless, for then ho had been
more than human. Doubtless he had his
defects ; whatever they may have been, I
do not propose to discuss them. To do
bo, would lie to imitate- the conduct of
some visitor to a gallery of art, who bhould
employ himself in tracing rough images
in the dust of the floor, and not in con
templating tho beautiful conceptions of
genius on all sides around him and above
, bim. I speak rather of what Judge Gib
jBon was, than of what he was not. His
case has been removed to that great ap
; pellate Court which, while it administers
j perfect justice, is governed also by perfect
mercy. Jurisdiction having vested there,
.on tho soundest principles of jurispru
dence no allegation should bo permitted
: against him hero. He certainly had small
'fault, which to small eyes were large
I enough to shut out a perception of his
great qualities, ma ctespisea tho aniso
and the cumin, and necessarily lost the re
spect of those valuable momliers of the
of the State, outside and inside of the bar,
who do the least important things first,
and tho most important lost. Frank gen
erous and confiding, he spoke on the ben .ih
and elsewhere, of persons and of things,
with that impulse which none but an hon
est heart can know ; nnd in doing so, he
occasionally lost in dignity as much as he

y kind, iu unv form, which des
pite his apparent unconcern of manner and
sluggishness of body, elicited and compell
ed affection. Thsr'e was a true fire of the
heart which glowed unceasingly ami cast
even the splendor of his intellect into the
shade. No man ever more cordially des
pised a cold, calculating, spider-like lawyer
weaving day by day his miserable toils, giv
ing up nothing, retaining his grasp on every
victim of chance and folly, employing his
powers only for the production of misery,
the pructiso of oppression. No man evi-r
spoke into being with so little effort, ar
dent and permanent friendship. He sat
on the Supremo Bench with twenty -six
different Judges, none of whom, owed
their position to his influence, mid almost
all of whom, on their acccsssion, werecom
pamtive strangers to him, and yet it um
bo doubted whether the purest an 1 hap
piest household ever lived in more absolute
harmony than he enjoyed iu his personal
intercourse with his associate, in regard
to any body of men long associated to
gether, this fact might be worth repeating;
but in that of so many independent men,
of strong intellects and wills, employed to
gether in the daily examination of exciting
questions, where conscience and duty re
quire each man to stand by bis individual
judgement, tho case is somewhat remarkable-.
His intellectual acquirements were
great, and ho had a right to bo proud of
them, but that wouldbe a poor monument
to his fame, which should omit to mention
those highcrand tinerqualitiesof the heart,
which placed him so far above the level of
It is almost unnecessary to speak ol
him as a man of integrity. I verily be
lieve that the mere force of habit in seek
ing the truth nnd finding reasons to sup
port it, would have driven him to the right,
agninst every corrupt influence that could
have been brought to bear upon him.
But tho truth is, no idea opposite to that
of his utmost purity as a judge, was ever
associated with hisiiame. There was some
thing in his character, conversation, man
ner and appearance, which wouldhavc
crushed such a thought in the bud. A man
who had approached him for the purpose
f corrupting him, would have been as
much disposed to fall down before him in
an net of homage, as to have attempted to
carry out his purpose. After a lifetime de
voted to tho service of his country, it is
surely no mean praise of a public man,
that declarations liko these can be utter
ed, with a certainty that they will be cred
ited, not less by tho suitors against whom '
he decided, than by tho profession who i
practised before him, and the community j
w hoso laws he enforced. I

"The 3i'ih of January, being that d.'.v
twelve yea i-3 from the death of the king,
the odioti3 carca .aea of Oliver Cromwoll,
Mitj'-r Gen' nil Ireton and Brndshaw, were
drawn in sledges to Tyburn, where they
wern hanged by ilie neck, from morning
till four o'clock in the afternoon. Crom

embalmed; Ir-.-ton having been buried,
Lung like a dried rat. Bradshaw in h i
winding-sheet, the ret; very perfect, inas
much thnt I knew his hicc, when the.
hangman, after cutting hi. head oil', held
it up ; ofhis toes, I had five or six in my
hand, which tho 'prentiow had cut off.
Their bodies were throw into a hole under
tho grdlows, in their reare-cloth nnd sheet.
Cromwell had eight cuts, Ireton four, lie
inj .seare cloth'i, and their heads wore sot
up on '.liesotith end cf W'cstinin.-ter Hall "

ing to the accounts, the body of Oliver has
ben dilli-ivnily disposed of. Some my
that it was 3-.tnk in tin Thames: other.
I hat it w as hurried in Norse byficld. But
the mo-t romantic story is, that this corps
was privately taken to Windsor, and put
iu King Chavlo's coffin ; while the body of
tlie King was buried in rtate for Oliver's,
and conse-piently, afterwards hanged at
Tyburn, and tho bcid exposed at "West
minitcril.il!. These idle reports might
nri-e. from the necessity there was of in
terring the Protestor's body before tho fu-
ner.il rites were performed ; for it appears
to havo been deno ited in WustminsUr
Abbey, in the place now occupied by the
tomb of the Duko of Buckingham. ' The
