Embalming.

The Yankee nation is introducing the fashion of embalming its deceased notorieties, beginning with one of the sons of the American Pharoah, who lately died and whose body has been preserved by that prosess. The late Gen. Lander has also been embalmed. They are also engaged in embalming the Union, which has long ago been defunct; but which they fancy they can restore by preserving the externals of life. In due course of time, we suppose Lincoln, Seward, and the Cabinet and military chiefs will also be embalmed, if the world can produces aromatics enough to save such a mass of moral and physical corruption.
