Mechanicsville, N. Y., May 27th.
--On the arrival of the train to-day, which conveyed the remains of Ellsworth
to his home, minute guns were fired, and the entire population of the surrounding country assembled to evince their universal sorrow.
The procession was then formed, embracing a number of military and fire companies.
Along the route many buildings were shrouded in black, and all flags were at half-mast.
The roads were crowded with spectators.
After the customary funeral services at the grave, in which several clergymen assisted, the face of the deceased was uncovered, and the people passed in procession to obtain a parting glance.
The body was then lowered into the grave, the men of the company formerly drilled by him — the Chicago Zouaves
— firing a volley over it. Then grounding their arms, they took shovels and filled in the grave.
Three volleys were subsequently fired, and the multitude of mourners dispersed.
