--Since the bloody battles of this war embalming the dead has become a profession in the Confederacy
, and a profession which will be gratefully remembered by those who have been enabled by it to inter the bodies of loved ones in the family graveyards in sight of the old homesteads, from which those brave spirits went forth to give up their lives for their country.
The art which was for a long time lost has been but lately revived in Europe
, and still more recently introduced on this continent.
, we believe, in the only city in the Confederacy
where the profession is practiced and from here assistants are sent by Dr. W. Maclure
to the different points occupied by our armies.
The chief office is on 12th street, at Belvin
