The case closed here, the counsel on both sides expressing themselves satisfied, without making nny remarks upon tbe evidence ^'ji'he Justice remarked that he always felt it a pleasure when an officer was attacked' to defend and protect him.

Mr. Uarr moved that the sum he reduced to >3.50.WO. the work to be superintended by a civil superintendent to lie appointed by the Secretary of War. He argued that ranlaln M?i?? - _ p. ? f- ? .? v a military oiflcer, is unlit for the business, Mr Hughes replied, saying that Captain Meigs hid shown great skill In the erection of the bridge over Cabin John Cr?ek. .Mr \\ hiteley opposed the recommendation of the Committee of Wave and Means to non-concur In this amendment, and spoke unfavorably of the Senate's discrimination an to who should superintend the work. It was folly for Government to crts** appropriations for uutlnished works on which millions of dollars have been expendtd Mr Morris, of 111., recollected Mr. J. G. Jones, during the last session, aaid that *"*00.000 would complete the aqueduct, and the statement was made on the authority of Captain Meigs. Now the latter came here and asked $500,000 more. The gentlemau from New York [Mr Karr] was right when he said 31.000,000 will not finish the work This Captain Melga had coat the Government millions upon millions of dollars. No military ofiieer ought to expend the Government money Mr. Barr's amendment was disagreed to; and the Senate's amendment for the water-work* was non-concurred la.

Mr. Editor: Why can't we bave the Promenade Concert* which are held at the Capitol grounds every Saturday afternoon, on Sunday afternoon. Instead of Saturday? the same as they do in London. Paris, and soine of the German capitals?so that the laboring classes, while at leisure aud in their holiday attire, can attend them, as well as the idle and flite of the city? There can certainly be no objection to t'ae arrangement in a relisjtous point of view, as every intelligent and liberal mind must admit that the time of the populace would be better spent under the humanizing nud refining Influences of these Concerts than it generally ia, on Sabbath afternoons, without them.

In sections. t 0 a OvtmoR ?a wiuim movbk-1 i>g Afheil -In hii morning sermon on Sun- I day last the Rev Dr Butler, of Trinity Church, I treating on this aubiect. aaid ' Our life la sorrowful mooch In our sorrowi as they pass without bringing them and holding them up in the world and erecting conspicuous monuments over them in the 11 vt* of others tc perpetuate them after they are dead and buried it i* a Christian doty to trouble others aa little a* we can with our griefs. We may be sure the world has enough for its own discipline. And It Is from this view I object to a custom which to my mind Is never good, but which in the excess to w htch It it carried seems to me to be an absolute wrong to society, throwing over It an element of gloom, which no persons, and Christians least of all. have a right to cast Into this already too shadowed light. 1 fear that I shall ofl'end the sacred sentiment and feeling of many who cherish tt aa a Christian ceremony when 1 announce my most decided objection to the practice of putting on mourning for the dead You will permit me. with all respect to the sentiment* or other*, to utter my very long and matured convictions upon it Its evils seem to me to be manifold. It looks like a uniform of organized rebellion against the providence of God It ?h?J? ?i" * - - row* KIWIII UHI IUC streets, through the churches, and in the houws It creates an impression in the world of tbe abaence of comfort and of conaolattou. It helps to perpetuate sorrow, when the Christian duty ia to cultivate peace and joy Children or Christian friends die and they go to Heaven, and we very properly lay them amid fragrant flowers, wlut whfte lilies upon their breast All around them la the light of Christian hope and consolation, and then we come in a dark cloud shedding night over tbe acene. This is not a Christian but a heathen custom The early Christians forbid cries sf agonies, tbe rending of garments, and the black emblems of despair which the heathen practised and adopted, and deposited their dead with sorrowing gratitude; for they sorrowed not without hope. Indeed, evidence is not wanting to prove that they adopted first tbe opposite custom to that of mourning; that they w ore white and bright colors, emblematical of their Christian joy. when the dead was buried out of their sight. I have sometimes thought whether the haoit, which will be in the memory of some of you, of wearing white scarfs at funerals was not arrived from this primitive custom. It is not. I think, a Christian sentiment which prompts this gloomy habiliment. It converts women, and. saddtst of all, little children into walking emblems of despair. black! Why it is the symbol of sin, of woe, of wrath, and of despair, not of the comfort and the gladdened sorrow of the Christian It is, moreover, too often h mere fashion. And then, to see it elaborately iuterwoveti, coquetish in Its adjust ments, going to places of amusement, covering the l?ay and giddy, as it has a sort of fantasquc masquerade appearance, and stems incongruous to the gloom. 1 respect the sentiment which leads thost who are bereaved to put away gay colors, and wear those which are gloomier. But let not the fancied respect for the dead, or fear that one may not seem to mourn enough, lead us into the most mistaken conviction that sorrow is a dutv When it i? a duty, let grace convert it into'a peaceful joy Let it not lead us into the egotism of obtruding our sorrow into the world, and a wrong against Christianity by making it wear a livery of despair, and a wrong to the world by being object* of gloominess, when our present peace should be a perpetual testimony to the high joys, and the sufficient consolations to a Christian faith Black ! What is it? It is that into which the light cannot come It ia the absence of light. Why should it drape the children of ligbt and of hope? Why should it be used in the case of those, the memory of who?e departure and peaceful rrst is a sacred joy' I may run counter to your feelings and prejudices upon this subject You may say it corresponds to your own feelings to wear this gloomy material; but is that feeling such as corresponds to the credit of God. and to the mercies of redeeming love? If the custom is in harmony with just conception, then have our green, sweet cemeteries, so full of joyful reflection, whose embtems are all in conflict with it, altered. Our graves should be placed in rugged pi ices, and have no trees but the Cyprus and the nightshade; no monuments but those of black marble. If our religion is joyful, it does seem to me that this objectionable uniform *f woe would be soon discarded.
