. His remains were identified on the next day by General Gordon and Captain Shaw, and were, after due preparation, sent to Washington, and thence to Oakhill Cemetery, Georgetown. There took place on the 25th of September that simple and touching funeral ceremony, the narrative of whose pathetic loneliness has touched many hearts; while it was yet more consonant with the nature of Stephen Perkins than would have been any priestly or military splendor. The services were performed by Rev. John C. Smith of the Fourth Presbyterian Church in Washington, who thus describes the scene:—-- There were but four of us,—the father, Dr. Francis H. Brown, Surgeon of Judiciary Square Hospital, and a young ministerial friend, Mr. D. R. Frazier, from the Union Theological Seminary, New York. As we were about to leave the Superintendent's house, I beckoned to three wounded convalescents near by, and said to them, Boys, I have come here to bury a young officer; we have no guard, fall in and act

killed at Cedar Mountain, Va., August 9, 1862. Nathaniel Bradstreet Shurtleff, Jr. was born in Boston, March 6, 1838. His father, Dr. Nathaniel Bradstreet Shurtleff, was the son of Dr. Benjamin Shurtleff, who for many years was an eminent physician of Boston, but originally from Plymouth County, where his ancestors, as well as those of his wife, Sally (Shaw) Shurtleff, had dwelt since the earliest days of the Colony, having crossed in the first Pilgrim vessels. His mother, Sarah Eliza (Smith) Shurtleff, was the daughter of Hiram Smith, Esq., of Boston. At the age of not quite four and a half years, Nathaniel entered his first school, and in two years was admitted to one of the public grammar schools of the city. His early boyhood was that of a bright and happy child, roguish and playful, yet withal well behaved, intelligent in mind, and sunny in disposition. He was exceedingly fond of reading, even before he was seven years old, finding pleasure in very mature books, and un
Departure of Missionaries. --A scene of unusual interest took place on Commercial wharf this morning, on the occasion of the departure of two bands of Missionaries, on the fine ship Sea King, for Madras and Calcutta. For the Ceylon Mission, under the care of the American Board, there were Nathan Ward, M. D., and wife, Rev. John C. Smith and wife, Rev. J. A. Bates; and for the Methodist Mission in India, under the patronage of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Rev. Mr. Jackson and wife, Rev. Mr. Hauser. A very large congregation of their friends, and others interested in the missions, assembled to see them off. Religious services were held on board, which were conducted by Bishop Baker. After the ship left the wharf the audience on shore joined in singing the missionary hymn.-- Boston Journal,30th.
A Powerful Light. --The New York Journal of Commerce states that the N. Y. Central Railroad Company has adopted the "Smith" light, for general use, upon the locomotives of their road. "By aid of this light," says the Journal, "the print of a newspaper can be read 2,400 feet distant." Nearly half a mile!

"crush," "confound" and "destroy" were no unusual epithets. Nevertheless, there are a few good and noble spirits who cry day and night for peace. They are sick of the awful scenes of the wounded and dying which Washington city has so often witnessed. Dr. Sampson, a Baptist minister, on the day of one of our "fasts," called the attention of the union prayer meeting to it, and desired that God would bless the day to our everlasting good. It met with the approbation of some, but Dr. John C. Smith remarked, if this was to be converted into a "secesh" meeting he would come no more, and his majesty has since kept at home to curse the South and invoke blessings on the head of President Lincoln.--Although I was once a teacher in his Sabbath school, and a member of his congregation, yet I was afraid to attend his church, lost he should recognise and report me to the Provost Marshal, and have me imprisoned. We do trust the prayers of the few righteous will be heard, and that He who i
