Correspondence of the Deily News.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 26, 1848.
This day has been devoted to the hon
or ()lone of the greatest of our race, now
no more to guide or counsel us on earth.
The military companies were out, at an
early hour parading the streets. The
whole length of Pennsylvania Avenue
was n continuous string of mourning ap
pendages. All the hotels and public
buildings had flags at half-mast. Black
muslin hung in profuse folds from the
hotel windows. Jackson Hall had its
flag at half-mast, and showed the weeds
of woe. The shops were generally clo
sed, and covered with black muslin.—
The public buildings were also in mour
ning, everything spoke a nation's grief
at the sad calamity that had befallen
us. From the lamp, elevated a hundred
feet above the dome of the Capitol, flew
a black streamer, while the pillars and
ornaments of the Capitol were begirt
with black. The flags of both Houses
were at half-mast all day.
At nearly one o'clock the body was
brought into the House of Represen
tatives, ar.d placed in front of the speak
er's chair, the friends of the deceased,
mourners, &c. &c., surrounding it.
The Hall was clothed in the deepest
mourning, the chair of Mr. Adams was
vacant, and the desk in mourning. Mas
sive folds of black crape hung over the
Speaker's chair, completely covering up
the large curtains surrounding it. The
full length portraits of Washington and
La Fayette, friends and acquaintances
of the deceased, were appropriatly in
mourning. The clock over the centre
door was surrounded with crape, and
the recording genius of time above it
rose from clustered mourning, as if she
wept at the death of her noblest son.—
The mace of the Sergeant-at-Arms was
veiled in mourning, as if even power
itself paused in the exercise of its func
tions to pay a tribute to its most virtu
ous, wise, and prudent servant. All was
in keeping with the deep and melan
choly spirit of mourning which darkened
every heart. There are times when
these things are worse than mockery,
but to-day it was sincere, and the heart
of every man woman and child respon
ded, in dark and melancholy musings to
these outward signs of woe.
The audience inthe Hall was such as
is seldom seen together. On the right
of the Speaker's chair sat the President
of the United States, on his left sat the
Vice President of the United States, and
President of the Senate. In front of
the Speaker's chair sat the entire Cabi
net, Messrs. Buchanan, Walker, Marcy,
Mason, Johnson, and Clifford, with the
President's Private Secretary. The
whole bench of the Supreme Court of
the United States were in attendance,
with the exception, I believe, of the
Chief Justice. The foreign Ministers,
particularly the Prussian Minister, were
conspicuous for their splendid dresses.—
The military also were largely repre
sented. Among others, I noticed Gens.
Jones Quitman, Shields, Col. Harney,
&c. I noticed several Commodores of
the navy. Among the pall bearers present
were Messrs. Calhoun, Benton, and Jus
tice McLean. Mr. Webster came in
with Mr. Davis as chief of the mourners.
The domestic calamities which he has
recently endured, the sorrowful feelings
of the occasion, added a deeper shade to
the dark outline of his features. Mrs.
Madison, Mrs. Hamilton, Mrs. Bodisco,
Mrs. Polk, &c., &c., were in the ladies'
gallery on the right of the Speaker.
The religious exercises were conduct
ed by Rev. Mr. GURLEY, Chaplain of
the House. He was an intimate friend
of the deceased, and, unless my memo
ry decievee me, Mr. ADAMS was the mem
ber who moved and carried, by his in
fluence, the election of Mr. Gurley as
Chaplain. Mr. Gurley is an eloquent
speaker and his sermon was able and
appropriate. His sketch of the life of the
illustrious deceased, the Religious coun
sels of his mother, in which she tells
him upon one occasion, that she would
rather see him perish in the ocean than
that he should be an immoral man. The
comparison of the character of the mighty
dead ton granite column, massive in its
proporition, immovable in its proud ac
tion and towering high to heaven, the
place to which his soul aspired was su
blime. The journey of Mr Adams to
Cincinnati to lay the coiner stone of the
Observatory, there the Religious cast of
his mind, were beautifully described.—
The sermon in its simple eloquence, ex
pressive character, and in its touching
appeals to the audience to imitate our
deceased friend, was a model worthy of
The text from which Mr. Gurley
preached was taken from Job 11th chap.
ter 17th verse. Before the sermon Mr.
Gurley read a portion of scripture from
Job, and offered up a fervent prayer.—
There was singing whioh came upon the
audience with effect, by a band in the
gallery on the Speaker's left. The fe
male voices sounded well in the House.
At the conclusion of the services, a
procession was formed which swept
round the grounds west of the Capitol,
contrary to custom, which is to go direct
ly to the burying ground which lies East
of it.
In the procession I noticed some 60 or
80 members of the Maryland Legislature
accompanied by their Sergeant at Arms
with his Mace.
The following is the inscription on
the lid of the coffin, just as it is engra
ved, line by line:
(An Eagle, with a wreath in its beak.)
John Quincy Adams,
An Inhabitant of Massachusetts, July
11th, 1767.
A citizen of the United States,
In the Capitol at Washington,
Feb. 23d, 1848,
Having served his country

Thousands called to see him yesterday
and to-day. The coffin was ornamented
with flowers. His features seemed to
retain their expression wonderfully.
ADVICE TO A SON.—Do not begin to
quarrel with the world too soon ; for bad
as it may be it is the best we have to
live in—here. If railing would have
made it better, it would have been re
formed long ago; but as this is not to
be hoped for, at present, the best way is
to slide through it as contentedly and
innocently as we may, The worst fault
it has, is Want of charity, and calling
knave or fool, at every turn, will not
cure this failing. Consider as a matter
of vanity that if there were not so many
knaves and fools as we find, the wise
and honest would not be those rare and
shining characters that they are allow
ed to be ; and (as a matter of philosophy,)
that if the world be really incorrigible
in this respect, it is a reflection to make
one sad and not angry. We may laugh
or weep at the madness of mankind—
we have no right to villify them for our
own sake or theirs. Misanthropy is not
the disgust of the mind at human nature,
but with itself, for it is laying its own
exaggerated vices as foul blots at the
door of others ! Do not, however, mis
take what I have here said. I would
not have you, when you grow up, adopt
the low and sordid fashion of paliating
existing abuses, of putting the best face
upon the worst things. I only mean that
indiscriminate, unqualified satire can
do little good ; and those who indulge
in the most revolting speculations of
human nature do not themselves always
set the fairest examples or strive to
prevent its lower degradation. Virtue
will catch as well as vice by contact ;
and the public stock of honest manly
principle will daily accumulate. We are
not too nicely to scrutinize motives as
long as action is irreproachable. It is
enough (and for a worthy man perhaps
too much) to deal out its infamy to con
victed guilt and declared apostacy.—
(W. Eaditt.
A JURY VERDICT.—A case was recent
ly submitted to a jury in this county,
which for its novelty and happy result,
deserves a place in the reports." It
arose from the following circumstance:
Two men, living near neighbors, had a
falling out about the cow of one of the
parties frequently getting into the en
closure of• the other, and which finally
resulted in the death of the cow, she
having been set on by dogs and chased
till she ran against a stump and broke
her neck. The case was submitted to
a jury of respectable and wealthy far
mers. After hearing related all the cir
cumstances, the jury made up their
mieds that the owner of the cow could
not afford to lose her, and that the own
er of the dogs was not able to pay for
her ; they therefore rendered the follow
ing verdict : that the jury should pay
the value of the cow, the magistrate
trent the party, and the constable pay
the cost.
The verdict was immediately ratified
and satisfied, to the great joy of the en
tire neighborhood.—Kentucky Democrat.
MlLLEntsm Al:MIN.—The Millerites
have fixed upon another day for the grand
burst up of worldly affairs. It is to
come in May next, when, according to
their calculations, the world will he 6,000
years of age for certain, and will take its
final blow out. They are geting ready
for it at Leroy, New York.
ANOTHER VICTIM.-Mr. I sa a c Thomson
fell dead from his chair while drinking
liquor, in Indiana Pa. He drank about
one quart of whiskey, fell from his chair
and died. He was a man of some prop
erty, but intemperate habits.
[From the American Messenger.]
Just before Napoleon headed his ar
mies for the invasion of Russia, some
one remarked to one of his veteran Gen
erals that God would never lend his
blessing to such an enterprise. The
war-worn soldier replied, "1 have al
ways observed that God helps the heavy
With this sentiment inspiring his
mind, Napoleon assembled his hosts on
the banks of the Niemen. It was the
most brilliant spectacle of military pomp
and power, probably, ever witnesed on
earth. Five hundred thousand men,
glittering with a formidable enginery of
war, were marshalled before their Em
peror, whose very name was a passport
1 1 to victory. As battalion after battalion ;
in their solid strength, made the very
earth seem to tremble beneath their
tread, Napoleon felt, and all Europe felt
' with him, that there was no earthly pow
er which could stay his vtctories, The
armies of Alexander are assembled to
resist the invaders, but at every point
they are met and routed by the Conquer
or of Europe, and the Russians, though
contending for the protection of their
own homes, invariably flee, after a scene
of awful slaughter, before the heavy bat
talions of their foes. At every river's
side, and at every mountain pass, the
discomfitted troops of Alexander make
a stand, to repel the invading army, but
it is all in vain ; the veteran armies of
the South mow them down, and ride im
petuously over them, as they march un
impeded on their way from victory to
victory. In the course of a few weeks
the domes and the palaces of Moscow
were seen glittering in the rays of the
setting sun, and the soldiers, with shouts
of exultation, rushed forward to revel
in the halls of the Muscovites. The
heavy battalions of the invaders had tri
umphed, and the Capital of the Empire
was in their hands. But the end was not
Napoleon, intoxicated with power,
stands upon the balcony of the Kremlin,
gazing upon the resplendent spectacle
before him. It was the dead of night.
An unclouded moon illuminates the gild
ed domes of two hundred churches, and
discloses to his enchanted eye a bound
less expanse of pillared palaces, and
magnificent streets, and parks, and gar
dens, and rivers, all decorated with
Moorish architecture, and rendering the
whole scene peculiarly fascinating to a
mind still alive with dreams of Oriental
Suddenly a bright light is seen to shoot
up the northern sky. The cry of fire
resounds through the streets. With
loud explosions and meteoric glare, new
volumes of flame and smoke burst forth,
with almost miraculous rapidity, in ev
ery part of the city. A rising tempest
fans the flame. And as the gale increas
es to a hurricane, the whole horizon is
filled with the terrible conflagration.—
The devouring element, rushing, roar
ing, crackling on its way, strides along
from street to street, until one wide,
wasting sheet of fire envelopes the city.
Napoleon and his officers, and the whole
army paralysed with consternation,
zed upon the resistless march of these
heavy battalions of flame and smoke,
and hastily retreat in utter discomfiture.
The victorious fire takes possession of
the city, and the vanquished troops, in
despair, throw themselves upon the fro
zen ground of the black heath. .
And now inclement Winter darkens
the sky. Cold, and winds, and snow,
and diseases and famine combine, and
with their heavy battalions, ns the allies
of Russia, pour down upon the unshel
tered hosts of France. They sweep
over the dismayed army with whirlwind
fury. Resistance is unavailing ; the
drifting snow is the winding-sheet of
tens of thousands who, during the win
try night, freeze on the storm-swept
plains. The driving storm is pitiless.—
The piercing cold knows no mercy.—
The sleet which fills the sky, and is
whirled by the howling wind, has no
ear to hear, and no heart to feel the aw
ful wail of dying men, which swells
louder than the roaring of the storm.—
And gaunt Famine and torturing Pesti
lence come in rushing squadrons more
terrible than Polish Lancers or Mame
bikes, and no solid columns or bristling
squares can repel their charge. God has
raised the heavy battalions and equip
ped them, and commissioned them, and
nerved them for His dread work of ret
ribution. And now he helps them, and
before their stately march the army of
invasion is scattered like chaff by the
Infidelity gazed upon the carnage of
Lodi and Rivoli ; upon the battles of the
Pyramids and Mount Tabor; and the
slaughter at Marengo and Austerlitz and
exclaimed, " There is no God who cares
for Man. The weak perish. It matters
not which is right or wrong." But in
the flames of Moscow—in the horrors of
those wintry nights on the plains of
Russia, when uncounted thousands found
in the snow their death-bed, and in the
howling of the tempest their requiem,
even Infidelity was abashed, and ex
claimed, ".God has at his disposal bat
talions heavier than man can marshal."
And when the retreating army, having
strewn its dead, like snow flakes on the
frozen ground, all along its path, under
the awful passage of the fferesina '
—as the dark flowing waves of the icy
river were before them, and the fur-clad
squadrons of the North behind them,
with artillery and musketry, and gleam
ing sabres, and pestilence and starvation
and benumbing frost, and despair, per-
waded the camp, and the storms of win-'
ter were shrieking over ther heads—in
that horrible day, when all that was mer- '
ciless in man's fury was combined with
all that was terrible in the warrings of
the elements, the horror-stricken fugi
tives felt that God was indeed helping
the heavy battalions 1_
. _
It was - on the 23d of June, 1812, and
one of the loveliest mornings that ever
dawned upon mankind, when Napoleon,
with a more magnificent array than
earth had ever before witnessed, crossed
the Nemen, for the invasion of Russia.—
At that time, Napoleon was on the high
est pinnacle of greatness ever attained
by mortal man. And as the resplend
ent mass of five hundred thousand, with
gorgeous banners, and glittering steel,
and soul-inspiring music, poured across
the bridges which spanned the stream,
every bosom glowed with assurance and
pride. "The glittering of the arms, the
splendor of the dress, the loud shouts
of the men, inspired universal enthusi
asm, and seemed to afford certain pre
sage of success."
In the middle of December of the
same year, a rabble rout of about twen
ty thousand men re-appeared upon the
banks of the same stream, haggard,
squalid, emaciated with cold and starva
tion, the sole survivors of the vast host
which, but five months before, had cross
ed the river in all the pomp and pageant
ry of certain triumph. " When this
miserable band of fugitives," says Al
lison, "arrived at a certain point where
the passage had been effected five
months before, when they beheld those
bights, then crowded with splendid bat
talions, now covered by a miserable
band of fugitives, and passed the re
mains of the bridges, now deserted,
which then groaned under the march of
glittering squadrons, the magnitude of
the contrast, notwithstanding their pres
ent sufferings, brought tears into the
eyes even of the common soldiers.—
Casting a last look on the shores of her
savage regions—then so ardently desi
red, since the scene of such grievous
suffering,—they plunged into the forest,
and abandoning every appearance of
military order, dispersed like private
travellers over the boundless plains of
The lesson will not soon be forgotten
in Europe, that God helps the heavy
battalions. And woe be to that individ
ual, and woe be to that nation upon
whom God lets loose, in an avenging
hour, his Heavy Battalions!
A SIIARP REPLY.-TWO physicians of
considerable skill and eminence lived in
a town in America. One of them used
no spirituous liquor—the other drank
freely—while one had acquired consid
erable property, the other remained
poor. Meeting each other one day, as
the former was returning from a distant
town, with a richly painted and well
made carriage, the latter accosted him :
"Doctor, how do you manage to ride in
a carriage painted in so costly a man

a very liberal man, and uncommon lib
eral in his dealings. When he had any
produce of his farm to dispose of, lie
made it an invariable rule to give good
measure, over good, rather more than
could be required of him. One of his

so, questioned him why he did it, told
him he gave too much, and said it would
not be to his own advantage. Now my
