The following from The UlsterCounty Gazette ?>f Jan. 4. isoo. gives a brief account of the funeral vt \> ashiu^Utn : UllOBUETO* * Dec. 20. *>n Wednesday lust the mortal part of Wash ington, tho Father of his Country and the friend rt man, wm consigned to the toiub with solemn honors and with funeral pomp. A multitude of persons assembled frcm tnany tni.es around at Mount \ ernon. the choicer bode and last residence of the illustrious chief Thore were the groves?the spacious avenues?tho beautiful and sublime scenes?the noble man sions, but 2la? the august inhabitant wus now no more That great soul gone. His mortal Pmr* was there, indeed but, oh. how affecting' how awful the spectacle of such worth and greatness, thus to mortal eyes fallen?yes fall en * fallen * In the long and lofty portico, where oft the hero walked in all his glory, now lay the ?hronded corpse The countenance, still' com posed and serene, seemed to express the dignity of the spirit which lately dwelt in that lileless form. There, those who paid the last sad honors to the benefactor of his country took an impressive and a farewell view ''n the ornament at the head of the coffin was inscribed'- Surge ad Judicum"?about the mid dle of the ooffiu, ''Gloria Deo,'' and on the silver plate, GEXRRAL GEORGE WASHINGTON. Departed this life on the 14th December. 1799. .Et. 66. Between 3 and 4 o clock the sound of artillery from a vessel in the river firing minute guns awoke afresh our solemn sorrows?the corpse was moved?a band of music, with mournful melodv, melted the soul into all the tenderness of woe The proce*?ion was formed, and moved in the foil.,wing order : Cavalry, infantry and guard, with arms reversed ; music ; clergy ; the Gen erals horses, with hi* saddle, holsters and pis tols ; Colonels Sims, Bainaay and Payne, pall hearers. The cor pee Colonels Gilpin, Mar and Little, pall bearers; mourners ; Masonic brethren , citixens. When the procession had arrived at the bottom of the elevated lawn, on the hanks of the Poto mak. where tho family vault is placed, the cavalry halted, the infantry marched toward* the mount and tunned their lines; the clergy, the Masonic brother and the citizens descended to the vault, and the funeral service of the church was performed. The firing was repeated from the vessels in the river, and the sound echoed from the w<?oda and bills around. Three general discharges by the infantry, the eavalry and eleven pieces of the artillery, which lined the banks of the Potomac back of the Tault .paid the last tribute to the entombed com mander of the armies of the United States and to the departed hero. The sun wi? now sotting. Alas ! tho Son of Glory wa? set forever! No * the name of Wash ington. the American President and General will triumph over death ! The unclouded bright ness of his glorv will illuminate the future ag?-s. ID" Several hundred men are now engaged In improving the ground* of the great Central Park in New York. Some :dea of the extent of the Great Wall of China may be eathered Pom a remark of Dr. Bowring, in a lecture on that country recently de livered in England. He said that if all the bricks stone and masonry of Great Britain were gathered together, thev would not furnish materials enough for such a wail &? the wjll of China, and thaMf all the iinternals in the iMiildlo^x in Loudon were put togetner, thev would uot lu-ike the towers and turrets that adorn It.
