so in the present instance, and desirous to accom

On theiace of the whole creation, God has

In the animate ereation, the same inexorable
law has sway. The songsters that enliven the
grove and salute the rising sun with their songs,
soon cease front their warblings and , mingle

The , microscopic insect and the monsters of
the mighty.deep are alike. mortal. Indeed the
very rocks and hills are not proof - against the ac
tion of the elements and the ravages offline, and
the earth itself will be arrested in its course by
the mighty hands ot God and return again to its
original nothingness
All these things, the man of reflection can
contemplate without emotion except so ; far as he
sees, shadowed forth in them, his own condition:
for our "tune is short and fast passing away."—
The infant breathes out its life. unconscious of a

ardent noble aspirations, falls an easy prey to

friends are no security. One dieih in his full

Rome Carthage should be blotted out:
Whether Roinan civilization and' law 'should

Africa. This really was the risk staked at Za

victory declared for the legions, of' Imperial
Rome. It is the result that throws such a lustre:
• over the name of Scipio; not that Carthage fell.
but because Europe was saved.
Columbus is another name that will not soon

human race, as if preparatory to the mighty ef

which were destined to shake Europe tolls cen

ranners of Franklin, of Hancock and of Wash

where Hampden left oll . and in another hemi
sphere completed the noble Temple of human
right, whose foundation stones are laid deep and
immovable in God's , eternal Truth.
Among such men, the late President must be
classed. What particular rank, he shall take;
which niche, he shall fill in The Temple of Fame.

The fact that is settled, is that Taylor's name is
fixed 'in history—that Taylorea deeds can nev

influential in deciding the destiny of natious, than
the extension of Territory and the incorporation
of new and to some extent, of 'foreign element in
the body politic. What, may - be the result in
any given case, no prudence can foresee: What
'must be, if pursued beyond the ability tc assimi

If the purposes of Divine Providence in this
matter be so far developed that wecan predict the
issue with any tolerable degree of certainty, the
time is not far distant when the once noble race
that made thernountains of Old Castile, the but

back to Africa the mighty tide of Saracenic in

the events of the-last seven years dour history

In these events, connected with results, if not
precisely such as have been.describod, yet simi
lar ; Gen. Taylor was a chief actor, IC is true
indeed that the honortnust be shared with oth

trious and all - the distinguished actors, immortal.
We are assembled, therefore, for a higher object.
a nobler purpose than man-worship : We are
assembled to review a character that reflects glo
ry on our country and honor on our nature.—
That character, in our judgment can be fully
appreciated only when contemplated from the
direction we have approached its manifestations.
It must be seen not in a sectional point of view
or even nation's' but world-wide. . For as the
pelabledroppedin the ocean communicated. its
imptilsesto every particle of water, so the deeds
of the army of occupation. will mingle with drid
determine the stream of the world's history:
thus viewed battles are of intense interest not as
scenes of carnage, but as the decisions of god, as
permanent points of reference and as indicatiqns
of human character. These are the' media
through which the public' haracter 'of Gen:
Taylor must be'viewed
His military course was a strikingly splendid
one, from the beginning of it, to the end. The
llisplar of military. talrntt . made in the ch fence
of Fort Harrison proved that an opportunity was
all that was required in order to e'rninence in the
.profession of arms.

U.S. against a combination'or Indian tribes un
