In tho reports of the Medical Officers of Health for Lon<lon. weresd that in the Victoria Park Cemetery. last year. ererr Sunday. one hundred und thirty bodies were interred; which fact ?>ne of the medical journals expressed hy saying that there wore sixteen thousand pound* of mortal matter added on that day alono to the already decomposing raw A uieaibor of the London Koyal Coilegn of Surgeons has recently issued a sensible pamphlet entitled ?' Burning the Dead. *r I rn Sepulture." aud we consider the subject ot sufficient interest to our reader* to present the following brief statement of his ar^iiment : I"he soul of a man is indestructible, and at death parts from the b*>dy. Of matter only the elements are. humanly speaking, indestructible. The body of man is made up of oxygen, hydro gen nitrogen, and carbon, vrith small quantities of phoephorus. sulphur, calcium, irou. and some other metals. By the law to which all matter is subject, man's body when done with, dcoom p"*cs into these elements, that they may be used for other purp?*ses in nature Can it matter to him whetner the process be effected rapidly or slowly' Tpon the douht a.* to the possibility of the re surrection when our bodies nave beeu burnt in stead of rotted, the snrgeon lay* the ha?m of texts ?? That which thou lowest, thou sowest not the body that shall be;" and ?* we shall he changed. But he adds: those who claim to have hereafter the whole identical body baclt again, must remember that in life it wastes and w renewed, so that if erery pnrticle that ever belonged to tha frame of an old man were re turne<l to him. he would get matter enough to make twelve or twenty b?Alies. It is just possi ble that somebody may bo comforted with a theory which the surgeon quotes in a note, that the soul carrie* away with it out of the world one atom of matter which is the seed of the fu ture body, and that these seminal atoms not be ing here, need not be included in our calcula tions abont things muterial. If could, by embalming, keep the form of the departed upon earth, that would be much; but for any such purpose, embalming fails. I'e'ay will n?e i's effacing fingers. " In the mu?eum of the College of Surgeons in London, may be reeu the first wifa of one Martin Van Butchell. who. at her husband's request, was embalmed by Dr \\ illiam Hunter and Mrs. t arpvnter. in the year seventeen hundred and seventy-fire. No doubt extraordinary pains were taken to preserve both form and feature; and yet what a wretched mockery of a once lovely woman it now appears, with its shrunken and rotten looking bust, its hideous, mahoganr colored face, mud its remarkably fine set of teeth Between the feet are the remains of a Sreen parrot?whether immolated or not at the eath of its mistress is uncertain; but as it still retain? in plumage, it is a far less repulsive ob ject than tiie larger biped.'" There was a law suit one* to try the right of a dead man to an iron coffin. when Lord Stowell decided that, -All contrivances that, whether iutentionally or not. prolong the time of dissolution beyond the period at which the common local under standing and u* ige have fixed it, form an act of injustice, unless compensated in soma way or other ' And when an iron coffin has been i opened after the lapse of years, what has been foun l ' Chi-dv dry grui* of worms and other [ insects that have fed upon the fleih. Socrates : exhorted his friends. ?? Let it not be said that F >crates is carried to the grave and buried; su?h an expression were an injury done t? my immortal part. Not very long ago. a hard ened murderer being told by the judge that his body, after hanging would be given lor dissec tion. said. " Thank you, my lord; it is well you cannot dii"??et my soul." Wo should look up ward. and not downward, when we stand beside the grave. The surgeon replies to (hoN who regard cre mation as a heathen custom, it is not more heathen than Jurying in bole*. Sprinkling J earth on the coffin is a heathen custom based upon a heathen atinersMfion. but converted to a Christian use lie gives interesting illustra tions of the use of urn-burial by many nations, bat reminds us that the cost of fuel was one ob stacle to i;? general adoption in old times. Oround was to be had more cheaply than the material* necessary for the humblest burnings, when it was requisite to burn on largo piles in tb*- open air "fiie Christians, however." says Sir Thomns Browne. ?' abhorred this way of ob sequies, and though they stick t not to give their b?*ties to ?hj burnt in their lives, detested that in >de af or death " But whatever reason Christians had in the first days of Christianity the burning of their bodies, they have left behind them no objection founded on a per manent religi'.u* Principle. We, now, bury in graves and build funeral urns in stone and emblems. f he report of the French Academy of Medi cine upon the effect of cemetries on the health of Paris, has led in France to the bestowiug of much serious attention on the subject of crema tion; and there is sober discussion of the plan j of M. Bonneau, who prop<>acs to replace ail j cemeteries near great eitie.,, by a buildingcalled the Sarcophagus ?' Thither the corpses of both rich an 1 p<ior should be convoyed, and laid out on a me'allic tablet, which, sliding by an instantaneous movement into a ooncealoo furnace, wouid csu'u the h?>dy to bo consumed in the space of a few minutes." Like a true Frenchman he urge, tne bearing of his plan on the interests of art. " for who would not wi h to preserve the ashes of his ancestor * The fu i neral urn may soon replace on our consoles and ! mantelpieces the ornaments of bronze clucks and china vases now found there." -Thismay ceem a misplaced pleaaintry," siys the Edin burgh Me<ii<-al Journal.'* ? but wc cannot help b?ii.g st.irtltd at reading the canitary report lea-ling to it." 1 he surgeon then dwells briefly on the one valid objection to tbe burning of the dead It destroys evidence in case of secret murdor Now. the dead speak under tbe spells of the chemist. If cremation be adopted, greater ac curacy in tbe registration and closer scrutinv in'o each doubtful case of d<*ath will b? imper atively called f >r. While we write this (says the surgeon.) a man lies sentenced to death againat w|. m the condemning wiluasa was the disinterred corpse of hi# mother fhe surgeon in his next chapter shows what tbe pollution of a grave yard it. Over this fa miliar gnun 1 we do not follow him, excent to take up the testimony of tbe French Academy ot Medicine that" no matter from what quitter ! the wind blows, it must bring orer Paris the putrid emanations of Pt-re la Chaise, Montmur tre. or Moatparnaaso, and the very water which we drink, being impregnate.l with the same poisonous matter, we b^como the prey of new and frightful di**a?e? of the throat and lungs, to which thousands of both sexes full victims every year Thus a dre idful throat disease, whi'-h baffles the 'kill of our most experienced medical men. and which carries ofl its victims iu a lew hours, is traced to the absorption of vi tiate i air into the wiudpipe. and has been ob served to ragc> wirh the grentest violence in those quarters situated nearest to cemeteries '' There nee 1 not be foul "null in poisoned air. The deadly malaria of the Pontine marshes, near Koine, wi: are reminded, blows soft atui b i'.uay as the air of a highland summer. In bis l**t chapter, the surgeon shows how oreiu iti -n of tbe d? ad would give even increased solemni ty to the funeral service, and increased truth to the words, " ashes to ashe?. dust to dust."' In the centre of the char>e| u?ed for burials, he w >ol 1 erect a shrine ot inarbio, at tbe d->or of which the coffin should be laid?so eonstructe 1 and arranged that at tke proper time, by un even agency, tbe body should oe drawn from it unseen, into an inner shrine, where it wo lid eroes a sheet of firnace flame, by whi-b it would be instantly reduced to ashes. Within the cbaj'el nothing would be seen; outside, there would be seen only a quivering tra-:s|C_ reat ether, floating iway from tr.e chapel epire. At the eooelnsioa of the serrit^e. the ashes uf the dead would be reverently brought, enclo sed in a glass vase, whi *h might he a^aiu en cb?sed iu a m re oo?tly urn for hurial. for de posit in a vault, or in a consecrated niche pre pared for it after the manner of tboee nkhef for the urns of the departed which were called. fr?>m their appearance, columhinria? dove cote*?by the Romans. The ashes of those who lored each other tenderly might mingle in oue urn. if we would iav : " Let not their dust be 1>8rted. for their two hearts in life were single leartod.'' There is nothing irreverent to the dead in cremation. Sou they expressed very emphati cally why a man might desire it for his friend* : 4'The nasty custom of Interment," he says, '?makes the idea of a dead friend more un pleasant We think of the grave, corruption, and worms. Burning would he much bettor."' The true feeling is that with which the sur geon ends his pamphlet, using the words of Sir Thomas Browne " 'Tis all one where we lye. or what becomes of our bodies nftor we are dead, ready to bo anything in the extasie of being ever.'" ' Nkw Mods or Trassi'Obtixo Promtr.? 1 For some months past, considerable quantities t of farm produce and other perishable substances ; h:iy9 been brought to the city from remote points, through the instrumentality of a now description of rail-car. fitted up on the "re frigerator" principle; and though delayed on the road by adverse circumstances, and notwith ! bonding the prevalence of hot weather, the , transportation was effected without injury to the contentsofthe car. Sosuccessful have been these efforts, and so favorably, in a pecuniary point of view, can the work be performed, that it is probable the business may become ono of mu^h importance. If choice articles lor house hold consumption?such as beef, garao. Ac.?can bo brought to the city from tho M estern country in prime order and at a reduced cost to con sumers, the success of the plants established. It is claimed by those personally coucerned that the*# ends have already been realized. Only a few cars have thus far been employed, and an effort is makiag, by stock subscriptions among privato families, to so increase the number that , tho "Market Car Company"' (already incorpor | ated under the laws of this State) can havo at ! least one car daily dohvered in the city, ladon i with meats, batter, eggs, Ac. The Refrigerator Cars are the inventions of ; Atsl 5. Lyman, and tho principle involved in their construction is applied with great facility to houses, boxes, or other receptacles designed for cooling and preserving perishable articles, j By this invention an artificial atmosphere is < ; created?pure, dry and cold. We arc told that fresh meats and poultry have been brought from the Western States to the city of New York, during the extreme heat of the summer months? a se??on when the value and utility of the inren | tion would be subjected te a severe test?with , complete success. By ore arrival, fifteen hun ! dred turkeys, chickens, geese. Ac., and one hun dred and eighty carcases of mutton, wore de livered in this eity in as good condition as when first placed in the car. in which they remained nineteen day*?.\. \ . Jour. of' Commerce. I A SlNQtLAR Ex eci'tiov?\\ e published a I , few days ago an account of the execution, under I Lynch law. in Pontotoc. Mississippi, of one ' <*ray, for the murderof Ahernethy. The scene ! seems to hare l>een one of those curious blend | ings of the terrible and absurd, tho savage and benevolent, which our highly original western population ha\e no difficulty in extemporizing at the shortest notice. The populace, being themselves judge, jury, an l executioner, ser^ I teneed the prisoner todenth. and lead bimforth, with a noose around his neck, to * convenient tree. Being requested to confess his guilt, not <>f course for the satisfaction of the wi?? tribu nal. which would not have sentenced him to die without proof uf his guilt or criminality, he de nies that heeommitted the murder; whereupon, shocked at the depravity of a wretch whocould lie in sight of his coffin. Judge Lynch orders him to be immediately hung i'his prompt pro ceeding appears to have at once aroused the ' torpid conscience of the criminal, and he in stantly made a clean breast of it. giving all the particulars ot the murder, and declaring that, at that moment, he saw bell burning beneath him liks straw. At his ie'jufc-t, the brothers of the deceased were then brought to him. assured him of forgiveness, and both parties cxchaB>'ed sentiments of a very gratifying and creditable character. After this, a military* man present, j one Major Steele, was called ujm.h to nutke a prayer, to which call he responded with much effect, and greatly to the edification of the as ?emblcd. company. The prayer being ended, a collection was taken up for the benefit of tho wife and children of the unfortunate gentleman ab .ut to suffer the last penalties, and the sum of $250 was raised. Thes? pious and benevolent duiie* having been performed, the prisoner was attached to the limn of a tree, and his anima tion at once suspen led The whole affair ap pears to b'tve passed -If in the most humane and even agreeable manner; and the assembly having devoutly fiiii?hed their prayers and alms-giving, separated without the slightest suspicion that, in the eye of law, they had just committed as clear a deed of murder as that of (ithj U|?m Abernethy.?111 ch mun <1 1) t * patch. Rbportrr Diem* AT Wbst Poist.?The editor of tho Rochester Democrat bus seen a statement from a pretty relit bio source, to the etiect that a duel was recently fought between two officers at West Point, in which one was rather severely wounded. The other one. who had dono gallant "ervicc in Mexico, was atoncc ordered ojjf to Utah, and the a&air was not made public. 1 he same authority is given for the statement that recently, while a corpi of cadcts were ordered on some spe - in 1 duty, the young men took cffonce at the orders of persons in command of the squad, and one of them rushed at the officer with his sword drawn, and at once commenced a furious attack. The officer stood upon his defence, and finally suc ceeded in disarming his opponent, who was all the while becoming more hot and rash. In dis po?sessing him of his wa[?on the cadet's sword arm was wounded. He retired to have his wound bound up. and while absent one of his comrade* aseuiued his place in the combat. The wounded man returned and again took his sword, and with increased violence attacked tho officer, who found it necessary to use all his skill and vigor in parrying the blows of his antagonist. \\ hen the attair had Income ap parently one of life and death between the combatants, a senior officer came upon the ground and put an end to it. Tho cadets who participated in the combat were arrested, and it was supposed would be dismissed. Ono of them it is stated is a son of Gen. Jesup. Tub KvANor.LirAt. Am.iante ?The Evan gelical Alliance commenced its sitting at Berlin on the 9th of September Mr. Wright, the American ambassador, addressed the meeting in an eloquent speech. Bishop Simpson spoke briefly in the name of the Methodists of Amer- i K-a. and Rev. Dr. Baird read an address from i the Protestant Christians of America to the con ference. which, he stated, had received the sig natures of the urmt distinguished Protestant Christians in the I nited States, and had also been adopted by several religious bodies, such as the syn'ulof the Associated Reformed Church, the General Assembly of the New School Pres byterian t.hurch, and also had received the sig natures of many prominent members of the Old S-h?iol Presbyterian Church, the Associate ' hurch, the Reformed Dutch Church, the S.uthcrn Church, the Haprist. Methodist, Epis copal, Moravian, and other churches. Able addresses nere delivered by Dr. Jacobi and the celebrated l?r. Merle d'Aubigne, of Genera. so well known by his history of the reformation in tho sixteenth century. The convention, amount ing to about nine hundred members, paid a visit to Potsdam, where they were hospitably received and entertained by the kin* and royal fiini'y.
