ble for him to support the Federal Administration as to breathe the vital air. Whether he would have contented himself with a moderate and decent "loyalty, " like that of Fillmore, or have plunged into the depth of personal debasement, like Everett and Cushing, must be, of course, a matter of conjecture. The corruption of the grave which has seized upon his body is nothing to the corruption of that living death which would have fastened upon a soul like his, degraded to the companionship of Wilson and Butler.

The President, the principal civil officers of the Government, the members of both Houses of Congress, and a large number of citizens attended and followed the body to Hollywood Cemetery, the final resting place of this distinguished young officer.

Vilieplgue, now well known in the Confederate service, and Major Greble, of the Yankee artillery, who was killed in the first battle of the war, at Great Bethel.

Sumner was Colonel, and our own General Joseph E. Johnston, Lieut Col. The operations of the old Federal cavalry were conducted mostly upon the distant frontier, far from the public eye, and from the observation of newspaper correspondents, and thus many deeds of great daring and high emprise went unchronicled, which would have established a reputation for their actors had they been transacted upon a theatre nearer to civilization and journalism.
