win, the bodies of the dead are not k ept ‘
'for several days, se with us, in the house of
mourning, but are promptly removed to a
public cemetery. In order to guard, how
ever, against premature interment, the re
mains are always retained above ground
until tbe certain signs of decomposition are
vowel, and besides this precaution, in
case of suspended animation, the fingers
ofthe corpse are fastened to a bell rope
communicating with an alarum, so that on
the slightest movement the body rings for
the help which it requires fur its resusci
tation—a watcher and a medical attendant
being constantly at larnd.
Now the duty of answering the life-bell
had devolved on one Peter Klopp—no
very onerous service, considering that for
thirty years he had been the official
''Death- Watch," the metalic tongue of the
alarum had never sounded a single note.—
The defunct Frankfurters committed to
his charge had remained one and all, man,
woman, and child, as ,silent as so many
stocks and atones. Not that in every case
the vital principal was necessarily extinct;
in some bodies out oleo many thousands;
it doubtless lingered like a spark among
the ashes--but declined, by national
phlegm, to any active assertion of its . ex.

passiVe as statues in marble. Not a
Amb stirred—nut a muscle twitched—not
i \finger contracted; and consequently not
a note sounded to star tle the ear or to try
the nerves of Peter Klopp.
Jo fine, he became a confirmed skeptic
as to such- resuscitations. The bell bad
never runs, and he felt certain that it nev
er would ring, unless from the vibrations of
aa earthquake. No. no—death and the
doctors did their work too surely for their
patients to relapse into life in any such
manner. And truly it is curious to observe
that, in proportion to the: multiplication
of physicians, and the progress of medical
science, the number of revivals has de.
creased. The inanimate no longer rally
ad they used to do some centuries since—
when Aloys Schneider was restored by the
joking of his coffin, and Margaret Schos
ning, - leaving her death bed, walked down
to sapper in her last linen.
So reasoned Peter Klopp, who, long
past the first remorse and fancies of his
noviciate, had come, by dint of custom, to
look at the bodies in his care but as so ma
ny logs or bales of goods committed to the
temporary care of a Plutunian warehouse
or lethean wranger. But he was doomed
to he signally undeceived.
In the month of September, just after
the autumnal Frankfort Fair, Martin Grab,

was pronounced to be dead by the dactor,
the body was conveyed, as usual, within
twelve hours, to the public cemetery,
where, being deposited in the Corpse
chamber, the rest was left to the care and
vigilance of the death-watch, Peter Klopp.
Accordingly, havirg takena last look
at his old acquaintance, he carefully twisted

It was past midnight, and in the corps
chamber, hung with dismal black, the life
lessiiody of Martin Grab was lying in its
shroud, as still as a marble statue. At its
head-the solitary funeral lamp burned with-
out a flicker—there was no breath of air
to 'disturb the flame, or to curve the long
spider-line that hung perpendicularly from
the ceiling. The silence was intense.—
You might have heard the ghost of a whir.

been one present to utter it; but • the very

air. The light smoke of the pipe mounted
directly epward, and mingled with its
cloud-like shadows on the ceiling. , The
eye would have detected the flitting of a
moth; the car would have caught the rust•
ling of a stray; but all was quiet ae the

Ultraism.—Speaking of the fanaticism
that pervades some of the so called reform•
ere of the day, the New York Observer
says: 'Ultraism is a lying spirit, and a
more destructive spirit than any of those
that by the Saviour's indulgence were.. al
lowed to enter the Gaderene swine. Like
them it is headstrong, obstinate and blind;
reckless of consequences, rushing down
steep places and into the sea, rather than
fail of having its own way. This is the
fate of Ultraism. Its aim is 'rule or ruin,'
and as it can neverreign where God reigns,
it fights while it can, and then dies by sut.
This Bowling Green Fountain in the city of
New York has just been finished, at the ecpense
of a number of private citizens residing near that
spot. It is thus described in one of the papers:—
" The Bowling Green Fountain.—We must con
fess that w e were unaffectedly delighted with this
beautiful fountain, during the display yesterday
evening. The design is a natural, yet, in these
days of finical notions in such matters, a bold con
.crption, on the port of its very talented and Inge•
nious author, Mr. Renwick. It presents such a
pile of rocks as might casually be found upon a
deirable spot in the country, selected by a man of
taste, for the picturesque beauty of the natural
scenery upon and around it, as his resident , !.—
When in play, the jet (in the centre of this pile)is
thrown up some eighty feet or more, and, descend-
ing, fills a reservoir on the summit, which over
flaws the rucks, producing the effect of a natural
cascade, ofevery variety of form and aspect. On
the faur sides of the pile are additional clusters of
jets, which add much to the effect, when in full
play. For the evening, there are gas fixtures pro
vided, illuminating the basin, and exposing the
beauty of the falls most picturesquely. The moons

As the broad column of water descends from its
high elevation, the setting sun's rays falling upon
it produces zountless rainbows, changing , their
form and positibn with every change in the point
of view taken by the spectator; and, altogether,
this must be conceded, by all persons of taste, we
think, to be by far the most beautiful fountain as
yet opened in the city .
It plays 15 minutes in every hour through the
day and evening.

Grand Re-anion of the Whigs and Blue
After all the terrible encounters which
have taken place this summer between slip
whigs and blue-noses; after an expendi.
cure of ink enough to float the Iron Steam
Ship, and of wind enough to raise a hur
ricane, it is now whispered that a negotia.
Lion is on feat which is to end in the for.
mation of a single ticket out of parts of
atone now in the field.
The plan of c - nnpromise,we u Wet-stand,
that both the whig and blue nose con.
ventions, which met to nominate, are to
assemble in joint meeting, and to cull from
both tickets, their choicest gems. The
whigs, it is said, !Live agreed to surren•
der Breckenridge and leave the course for
Craig; in return for which, the blue noses
have evinced a willingness to drop Capt.
Hays, and go in for Mr, Morrison. The
a rangemeat is a very pretty one, to be
sure, and to secure Capt. Hays's assent to
it, we have no doubt that they will prom
ise him the next nomination for Sheriff.
In regard to till Prothonotary, nobJly
cares much for llorner, and we presume
Mr Jaynes will be the candidate.
The Assembly ticket will give some
trou'Ae. But the probability is they will
leave off Huliz because he voted to refund
Jackson's fia., and drop John J. Muse who
is now on the blue nose ticket. Robert Hi
! lands and Fauntly Muse, who are now on
the whig ticket, will also probably be left
off, and then the new ticket will stand;
Robt, S. Cassat, Francis C. Flanegin, John
Riddle, and Jas. E. Sheridan. The blue
node candidate for Commissioner, Robert
Wallace, will probably be retained, and the
whig candidate for Treasurer, J. W. Light
, ner, will also be kevt on the track. For
the rest, it makes no difference.
Perhaps we are not right in all of our
conjectures, but we incline to think that a
!ticket will be made, ternewhat after the
fashion we have above sketched. And
what will be the effect of this magnificent
consolidation on the Democratic party?
' may be asked by some. We answer that
no arrangement the federalists can make,
can at all jeopard the success of the en—
tire democratic ticket. They may man.
euvre as they please, but they have lost
their power, a•id no political sherne, how.
ever adroitly devised, can regain it for
The Fall Election
It will be seen by referring to the advern
tising columns of our dally and weekly pa
pers, that there is a goodly array of names
offered to the democratic Convection, from
which the Delegates will choose a tick, t to
be supported at the October election.
More anxiety is felt in regard to the coun
:y offices, than for any of the other nomi.
nations. All who have announced them
selves as candidates are good and true men,
and whoever may be the favorites of the
Convention, they will, we feel assured, be
warmly supported by the people. In their
political relations with the party, they are
highly e:-teemed, and known to be compe
tent for the offices to which they aspire.—
In urging their claims with the voters, we
hope they may not be guilty of any acts of
injustice towards their democratic compet.
itura, or sully their fair names by resorting
to means that have ever been reprobated by
honorable men and honest democrats,
is the custom of our federal opponents to
attempt to cut each other's throats—politk
cally—in their scramble for the nomina
tions,but it has ever been repudiated by the
democrats., We trust it always will be so,
and that the man who attempts to add to
his own chances of success, by putting in
circulation malicious statements against
those who are his competitors, or who will
employ others to do so for him, may receive
such a rebuke from the people, as his vile
conduct merits. Such a course is charac.
teristic of the Whigs and blue noses, but we
trust will meet with no countenance from
any portion of the democratic party_
