As a prornhnul man, his months had only marked one year on the dial plate of time yet hav ing stepped, in advance of young men of his years, to a heavy practice at the bar, we had siflhYieut business intcrcourte With him to justify us in the belief that his clear niatheniatical mind, his literary taste, his untiring energy, his methodical habits, his glowing imagination, his un selfish friendship, mid his high colloquial powers, which gave ns cause to guard agalilst hint as an adversary 'around the council table, but love hfm as an compa nion around the social board 'would lead him to distinction in his profession But As it lias pleased a kind LVovidenco to SUttimon him lo courts of higher au thority, it is a md, yet sweet privilege, of turning for consolation to the memory of his deeds; they aro written on the re cords of our courts; they are stamped on many a Held of martial glory, that will form themes for pages of our country's history, and engraven on tho hearts of all who knew him, and it only remains for ns to , Xetotoe That it is with unfeigned re giet we heard of the death ofoures teemed brother; and although ho fell covered with the honors of the patriot soldier, and a martyr to the noblest cause that ever graced humanity, we can not, in our Bullishness, but express the wish that he might have been spared a littlo longer to serve his country with his valor, and bless his friends with his com pany. , ., j Jfeolwd, That iu . the conduct of our deceased brother, wo ever mot an exem plification ofjprofessioual ethics, and soci al duties, tii at now contribute a double pang at his death, but a bright example in his memory. , , Resolvxl, Tuat we tender to tho family and friends of the deceased our condo lence and sympathy tor the Bad bereave ment that has befallen them.

Narrow, in deed, will be the mantel required to cor ver thy faults. Among humanity's fa vored few, yorlr memory lives, unstained and bright as the spotless robes of purity. As we witness the tears of the young and the old, the male and the female, thd rich arid the pool', mingling at the mere mention of thy fate, we Cannot but feel the shaddws ot a passing joy in tlie belief .that Providence cut ytnt down in the centre of that friendship's circle which extended co-evil with your 'ac quaintance.

Tho editor of the Soranton Republican says : ,"We saw a curious embellish ment tho other day, a five dollar bill on tho Pottsville Bank, which contains on otio corner a vignette of James Buchan an. Some loyal persons had bunged his eyes with. red Silk, drawn a gallows above his head, from which a rope was suspen ded, that went round his neck, and then branded his forehead with the word ' Ju das." This is but one of hundreds. The, bank has had to call in all its issues with that portrait on it, so unmistakea ble are .the manifestations of popular in dignation against tlio man who might, had he had the will or pluck, have nip ped this thing in the bud, as Jackson did before him." ...

' ' - '' " After awhile, I went np to Valldnituj ham, who, as he" made the most noise, had the biggest Crowd around him, and asked where I Could find ''the party." . "Major," says he, "I'll give yon a liile to a few of the sachems. Our real head quarters now af Philadelphia." So he gave me a bunch of letters; and I made For the Quaker City by the next train. When I got odt at the Prime street depot, I pulled out my letters, and I tltiVef Was 'more struck in my ldng event ful life. I read first, Lawyer Ileed, next Lawyer Rmdull,- next Lawyet Wharton. By thunder, says I, somebody has swap' ped coats with me ; these names point to the rankest ot Old Nfctft eoumellors they wore every oue attorneys of the Chestnut street monster, find I'd as soon call on a cannibal as Oil either of 'em. But when 1 felt in the othe pocket and found my knife and tobacco there, and found the mended platte in the right cuff, so that there was no nVistake as to the coat, 1 suspected that Vol. had played a mean joke on me, and had given mo letters to these friends of Kiddle Rd as to have me snubbed. I fult like going right back and or.imraiug' (he -envelopes down his roaring thi oat. v4ut oir second thought rtctci'ifiinecUt5o tip to Lancaster and seo, Mr.' Buchanan; and ask him whether such treatment was according to the Constitution! ' Sure enough, there I found J. B, pal j and cold as usual. He told me the let- tors were all 'right. Says he "xhese are our patrori Democrats now." "Well," says I, "this beats .ill my for mer trials its. worse than nigger recruit ing.' I wouldn't feel safe in conference or company with thein. I'd rather go down and take my luck with the remains ot the old Kitchen Cabinet, viz : Globe, Blair and P. M. Amos." "Ah Major," said he, "you are nt once too ndhesive and too suspicious. The world turns, and we must turn with it. You stick tod fast to old friend's a"d tako hold ot new ones too slowly. Yon had better not lose this opportunity of calling On ottf late Extraordinary Envoy to China. ' See how his acquaintance might, advance your social btatiw." "Mr. Buchanan," says I, "you'll please to speak English when you speak to mo. I want none of Squire lteed's 'social sta tus,' whatever that may be. I want a few real Democrats." , "I .begin to understand your case, Major," says he. "and I now think of a couple of ourfolks with whom you will be both safe and satisfied. I can com mend you to Fernando Wood and Hora tio Seymour of New York." ' ' "They sound rather better," says I. "At least I don't think they Were among the Biddlo Whigs thirty years ago." j "No, indeed,", says ho ) "but, Major, you shouldn't have such a dread of the Biddlo name. ; Don't you know that Oul' Colonel Biddlo is Nicholas Biddle's own son!"- .,''.;; ..-iv. .....'' "What I that Congress man who cus sed the nigger so, and said he could smell !cm far off, and that Lincoln meant to put them abOVe the whites, and all that !" "That's the very man, Major," Said he. . "For gracious sake, Mr. Buchanan," says I, "don't tell me any more. Give me the letters, that I may start to New York before the very points of the corn eas cat ohanared." And so he wrote me an introduction to F. Wood and II.

I thanked Dim heartily, and said that when it suited, I would like to see the othor trentleman, Mr. Seymour. "That's our Governor,'' aid he, "and ho is up at Albany. . You may stay here a month with mer you shall have a free ticket up fo tho Capital to-morrow. Make yourself at home and at ease."

"Lut's introduce him to 'Glorious Little Mac' at once," says Fi "The very thing," says It.Mind then ho telegraphed to McClellan. . Then we look drinks all round, sipping and talking leisurely, and, jUst as I was lifting my glass for the last time, I heard a penny whistle in the entry, and tllty said that was a sure sign that Mao was close by. "Well, really," says I, "I reckon he Wasn't 'tother side of the Potomac when the Governor called him, considering the time it took him to cross it last fall." "Ah, he moves differently, now," said Fernandoi , "Here he is" and then the Governor rose and piit my hand over to "Little Glorious," and we shook hands, and my three new friends seemed quite pleased, and I joined in the fun.

Twill now give you a synopsis of our long, tedious aud laboiious march. Doubtless, as you have already learned, old Lee with his starved and motley crew left : his strong hold Opposite Fredericksburg, be tween the 5th and 12th of June. The yankees, being always wide awake when the blackhiarts tire in motion, Were ap prised of the same by the offensive smell when they emerge from their dens, were in quick - pursuit. Marching on double quick the distance of f25" miles ve came up with them at Gettysburg, Pa. . Tho oontest soon begun and when the history of this cruel war shall be beautifully written and published to the world, it will be seen to have been among the most terrific,- fierce and destructive of the war, and one, too, amongst the most brilliant victories. Once the old tdry succeeded in leading his starved crew upon the soil of tho Old Keystone, and, once their stomachs were filled, and once too, the green earth tt the old State was saturated with tory ,blood. TrilB, Hlany noble defenders of their Country, fell up on that bloodstained field. However, the number was small, when compared with that of the rebs, in that bloody struggle. We slew, and gobbled up thir ty five or forty thousand "grey-backs." .r . 1 .1 - ft'rtT!nf & v e men pursued mum 10 vv nimiiisuoi u JJai'ylaiiU.

Known as Kkmih.e's brigade, but subsequently commanded by the brave nnd sallnnt Caul, and nt this time eotnnl.lllded by Colonel Jostii'lk Snyder, of West Va. Much as editors and correspondents have promulgated In referenco to the treble deeds of other brigades, they seem to have been as silent as the grave in refer ence to the first named brigade. How ever, for this brigade, wo ask no favors. Nothing but that which is duo it, and thtitweihink wo are entitled to. Wo do not desiitt ti speak ej-itistioally.
