The grave is the ordinal of true affection It is therw the d vine passion of the soul manifests its superiority to the instinctive impulses ?f mere animal attaohtnent. The latter must be continually refreshed and kept alive by the presence of the ohjeet. but the love that if) seated on the soul can lire on long remembrance. The mere inclinations of sense, languishing and de clining with the charms that excite them, turn with shuddering and disgust from the precinct of the toinh: but it is thence that trub spiritual affection rises, purified from every sensual de sire, aud turns like a holy flume to illuminate and sanctify the hoart of the survivor. The sorrow for the dead is the only sorrow from which we refuse to be relieved Every other wound we seek to heal?evory other af fliction to forget; but this wound we think it a duty keep open?this affliction wo cherish and brood over in solitude. Where is the mo ther who would willingly forget the infant that perished like a blossom from her arin. though every recollection is a P?ng' Where is the daughter whe would forget the most tender of parents, though the thought is but to lament' Who, even in the hour of agony, would forget the friend over whom he mourns ? Who, when the toiub is closing upon the remains of her he iu"jt loved?when he ft els his heart, as it were. crn*hed in the closing of its portal?would ac? cept consolation that must be brought by for getfulness? No; the love which survives the tomb is one of the most noble attributes of the soal. If it has its woes it has also its delights ; and when the overwhelming burst of grief is calmed into the gontle tear of recollection? when the sadden and convulsive agony is over ?the present ruin of all that is most loved is (?>fU?nud away into pensive meditation on all that it was in the days of its lovelineas. Who : would root out such a sorrow from the heart ? Though it may sometimes throw a passingcloud over the bright hour of gaiety or spread a deep er -a lacss over the dtrk hour of gloom, yet who would exchange it for the song of pleasure or the burst of ievelrv ? No; thero is a voice from the tomb sweeter iKan song. There is a remembrance of the dead to which we turn even from the charm? of the living. Oh. the grave!?the grave! It buries every error?covers every defect?extinguishes every resentment. From its peaceful bosom springs n-?ne bat fond regret and tender recollection ! Who can look upon the gravo even of an enemy; and not feel a compunctive throb that he had ?ver warred against the poor handful of dust that lies mouldering before him ? But the grave of those we loved?what a place of meditation ! There it is that we call up in long review the whole history of virtue and happiness, and the thousand ondenrmunts lavished upon us almost unheeded in the daily intercourse of intimacy ; the tenderness of the parting scene?the bed of death with all its ?titled griefs, its noiseless attendance, its watch ful assiduities?the last testimonials of love? the feeble, fluttering, thrilling'?oh, how thril ling!?pressure of the hand?the faint, falter i.ig accents, struggling in death to give one m>re assurance of afieution ! Aye, go to the grave of buried love and med itate ' There settle the account with thy cm science for every past benefit unrequired, of every past endearment unregarded, of that de Earted being who can never, never re^Urn to e s?>othed by thy contrition. If thou art a child, and hist ever added a sorrow bo the soul or a furrow to tho silver brow of an affectionate parent?if thou art a hus band, and hast ever caused the fond bosom that has eenturod its whole happiness in thy arm4, to d?'ubt a moment of thy kindness and truth?if thou art a friend, who has ever wronged, in th<>u^ht. word or deed, the spirit I that generously confided in thee?if thou art a . lover, and hast ever given one uumerciful pang to that heart that now lies cold and stiff be neath thy feet?then be sure that every unkind look, every ungracious word, every ungentle action, will come thronging buck upon thy memory, and kuock dolefully upon thy soul ; then bo sure thou wilt lie down sorrowing and repenting upon thy grave, and utter the un heard gr >an and pour the unavailing tear, the more deep, more bitter, because unheard and unavailing. Then weave the chaplet of flowors and strew the beauties of nature about the gravo?eon Mle thy broken spirit if thou can-?t, with those tender yet fertile tributes of regret, and take wirniug by the bitterness of this thy contrite affliction over the dead, and heneefurtn be more f<ithfu! and affectionate in the discharge of thy duties to tue living. ? Nrw FlRK 1-Roor I* AKMKNT3 FoR FlREME!*. . Poine euri obs experiments have just taken place | at Pari* to les a new contrivance f>r prote -ting j hr-Miien from the action of the flames and en abling them to resist a strong heat. Iteonsists ?>f gloves made of amianthus, a kind of tll:\men tous mineral, a helmet of the same material fitting into another of wire-gauze, and a shield one metre [h'Jf in ] long and H<> centimetres broad, besides other garm.-nts of the above-men tioned materials Three firemen, having put on the gloves, were enabled to earry iron bars at a white beat f- r three minnte* without being obliged to let go their hdd. Straw was after ward* -et on tire iu a largo oa.?t-ir>n caldron, and continually kept uj? while a firemen, wear ing the double helmet above mentioned, stood above the flames, which he warded off with tho rbield Although they roee at times above his head, he was enabled to keep his p?et for a min ute and a-half, at the end of which time his i>u'?e which wv at 72 before the experiments, r.i l risen to 152. Another fireman followed, who, having covered his forehead with a piece of aiman'hus. was enabled to resist the flames for three minutes and forty eeoonds. Two longitn lin.il heaps of chips, splinters, and straw had been prepared about five feet asunder. and thirty feet in length, two lateral openings being left to enable the firemen to get out in case of necessity. Four men were now equipped in eoiuplei* suits of wire-gaase. with lioot* of amianthus; two of them wore, besides, a dress of amianthus, ever another suit of clothes rendered incombustible by mean* uftmrax, alum, and phosphate of animoaia ; the two others wore a double dress of prepared cloth ; one man. moreover, win intrusted with a ba?ket of wire gnus*: on his back, containing a boy ten years old. protected by a helmet of amianthus. The hea|* bwing set tire to. these men went into the fl.ime# together. and. walking at a very moderate pace, performed the distance several times. At the end of 6" se-onds the boy shrieked out, and the fireman who carried him stepped out of the flames. The bo^r was examined. but wis found per fectly uninjured ; his skin was cool, an l his ulse. which was at h4 before tho experiment, ad only risen to 9A ; he might, therefore, have resisted longer had he not been frightened at 'peeing the flames meet over his head, while, at at t e s?ine time, one of the ropes which held the musket had slid down the fireman'ssholnder a little, with a slight *h??ck A few minute* after, he was as g*y as ever, and betrayed no signs of indisposition 'lhe fireman s pulse which was 1*2 before, was III after the experi ment The olher three men remained 2 miu u e and II Meeonds in tlie flames, and .-tated, in iu n^ out. that the* had ex erieuced lio par ticularly painful sensation, except that ??!" ex cessive heat.

Some of these communication* are very elegantly written; one or two come from the graceful hands of ladies; and thosefroin the neighborhood of Richmond urge with extraor dinary force, the claims of that locality, above all others, for tho grand arena, which, on the bright days of the year, shall have the honor of gathering together the t/ua of the intellect and beauty ot the land. The largest amount of fa vor. however, inclines to Washington city; ami we coufess that, after looking on the subject on all sides, that location seems to have the great est nutubtrof advantages for theobject in view Washington city is becoming a great favorite with the American people. Its very name teems with reminiscences of overwhelming im port Its beautiful location, selected by Wash ington himself, and appropriately designated by his name, suggests itself at once as the most intensely national locality for an institution that is contemplated to be of a purely nnd broadly national character. That city, however, become* still more at tractive to the end iu view, from other and more practical considerations. In the way of resident population, it has the advantage over the other places named. If a bell were tolled on the Capitol, whose boom could pertorbate the atmosphere for six miles round, tne ring would reach a hundred thousand ears We need not say that this population, in moral cultivation, p-pular intelligence and social refinement, is c^iial to that of any other community, while its thousands of temporary residents are but so many representatives of the wisdom, taste, and general accomplishments of the world. It seems to us, therefore, that Washington is the true ami appropriate middle ground, where breeders, owners, and trainerscan conveniently take their racing stock, in all seasons of tho year, from all sections of the Union. They would all leel at home in the District of Colum bia, and from the great facilities afforded by the railroads which concentrate upon that cen tre. they would easily get there. It should also be remembered, in this connec tion, that tho pending enterprise of Mr. Ten Iiroek. whatever may oe its immediate results iu England, has only laid the foundation of an intense and most congenial rivalry between two great nations for many years to come ; and that the contests, in this way. which opened at (iood wood in the presence of a (^ueen and lords, both temporal and spiritural, might most ap propriately bo continued, when the British in terchange compliments ou our soil, in presence of our President, his cabinet, and the peerless beauties of the Republican Court. Is it too much to expect, that such racing contests at Washington, graced as they would be by the attendance of resident representatives of near ly all the nations of the civilized world, would attract as many respectable strangers as ever attended the inauguration of a President ? The parties who should take the most interest, in the establishment of a National JoekeyClub and Race Course at the National Metropolis, are manifestly the citizens of Washington uietn selves. The race meeting, if conducted as pro posed, would fill the city with affluent and lib eral strangers; while from the rural districts, there would bo an inpouring of tho country families, who would not only enliven, but eit rioh the city by their profuse little purchases. The question then is, will tho citizens of the National Metropolis avail themselves) of these suggestions, and turn them to a good account. SmUjc one or two gentlemen of means and en ergy. backed and aided by a well-organised lo cal Jockey Club, could soon select a suitable site for the Course, and make such improve ments upon it as good taste and experience would readily suggest. Then we would, in deed. have a National Institution worthy of the Capitol City, and equal to the "Spiritot the Times. '?Purler's nj the Times. An Kpisooe in Citv Life.?Passing through Avenue B a few days ago, our attention was attracted to a crowd in front of a carpenter's shop. The object of interest was a poor fellow wb i had tallcri in a flr. From his apron, rule and other indications, we inferred, rightly, tht?t he belonged to the s-hop. Irom which, we after ward learned he had been borne for the benefit of the air. lie presented a pitiable sight, and, leaving the spot the more hastily because of the heartless witticisms which two or three brutes in human form were venting at every contortion of the unfortunate carpenter. we entered the shop to in<{uiro of one of his fellow-workmen who remained in it the cause oi the fit. The place seemed to be a coffin factory, rather than an ordinary carpenter ? shop, and on every side were scores of those ominous looking cases for the inciosure of human bodies. They wore all of pine material, cheaply made, and as yet uncolored. We put the intended inquiry, and wai answered by tho man as civily as was c^nsistant with his uninterrupted continuance of nailing together the sides and ends of a coffin. "l>idn?t know kind of a fit it was?didn't know tho cause?couldn't leave go his work to find out?ask the boss." We complimented him npon the faithful use which he made ofhis employer's tiiue, at which be grinned, and, with a hard lick at a nail with his hammer, th- joiner rejoined that he worked Ky t/ir piece. 4*So did A/?t," he added, with a hasty gesture with his hammerover his shoulder, t >war?is thesidcwalk. 4,Thero's acofiin heje?t done. Lucky for him, he'd jest druv the last nail when he droped down into the fix you we him in. and all he's got to d^ when ho comes to agin is to take his pay for it. If he kicks the bucket this time, it's all ready, yer know, for bis own use !"' The mm chuckled cheerfully as he said this, and only a few moments had clajtsed when his unfortunate fellow-workman was brought into the shop lifeless, and laid 011 a box which his own hands had made !

The hearse was drawn by four white horses, anil fifty carriages followed. Ry the hearse, one man walked, with his hat in his hand, while the remainder of the followers were in the carriages. The peculiar circumstances of the funeral were these. Abont three months ago, two (ierniau citizens, well circumstanced in life, wure on a drinking frolie together. During their conviviality, they discovered that thty were both from a particular part of tierinany. They thereupon ratified a perpetual friendship, and under the enthusiasm of the oocasion, went s 1 far as to make a funeral compact, the pro vision* of which were, that the first one to die should be buried by the other, the survivor to riay all tho expense*, to have the hearse drawn >y four white horses, and followed by fitly car riage*, and t<> walk himself by the side of the hearse, as chief mourner.
