This Bier was borne by four men dressed in scarlet jackets and dark pantaloons?the other Companies bore the Hags and torches, headed by their Engineers, carrying their trumpets, all ot which, were very tastefully trimmed with crape. About four o'clock, this division formed into line, und after passing through the prescribed route, from the City Hall, entered at the end ot East Broad way, on the limits of Grand street. The crowd of thousands here met them, and though most excellent order was observed, it was with dif ficulty the procession moved forward. Trees, bal conies, roofs of houses, windows, and in fact every corner where human form could be jammed, waa one living mass of people, the motion of which might well be compared to the moving billows. Business at this part of the town was quite sus pended, and the shops were closed. From the infant in the mother's arms, to the need and infirm, was every where to be seen. Windows were com etplely gutted of their frames, and platforms erected on every floor, like stairsteps, to afl'ord those who were in the rear a chance or opportunity of getting a glimpse at the solemn thousands. Mourning dra pery hung in numerous shapes from the windows in all directions, to the trees or other supports in front of the houses. We must remark, the military, with out exception, wore u rosette of crape on the left arm, and many of them, especially their officers and nott-cominiasioned officers, the portrait of the de parted hero on their left breast The heat of the sun in Grand street had a powerful effect on the men on account of their heavy accoutrements, and the water might be seen rolling d9wn their faces as large as peas. Along the line, were a number of men and boys with buckets of wa ter, serving out to the procession, some for payment, some without price. As soon as the Seventh Division arrived at Eldrtdge street, there was a halt for about five minutes, which gave us a little time to ruminate on the scene which everywhere presented itself; and on looking round, in the direction of where we imagined the market-house ought to be, for some moments vyc were lost in reverie as to its location; but on further scrutiny observed it at a short distance. The cupola, roof, walls, windows, balcony, were so crammed with the men, women and children, that uny one who ever saw a swarm of bees on the out tide of a hive, would not have the slightest hesita tion in at once forming a comparison between them. Several flags and other ensigns floated silently and solemnly on the breeze, whify in the twinkling ot an eye the commanding officer, in a voice like thun der, which echoed through the ranks, ordered the military again to stand to their arms; and in a mo ment all was bustle, and again th-y were on their solitary march, and in a few seconds on the limits of the Bowery, in order to proceed on their further route. Eighth Division. This division did not number so many societies as we were led to expect from the programme, but those that were on the ground were numerously at tended, und their banners moat tastefully arranged with crape and the various insignia of mourning.? They were marshaled by Ool. ti. C. Morris and k. Short il, Esq. The first society was the " Italian Benevolent Society," bearing their ban ner representing the landing of Columbus. After them followed tne " Hibernian United Benevolent Society," with banners depicting the same scene, unother one ot Wellington, and a gilt harp wreathed with crape there were upwards of two hujidred members walk '""The Shamrock Benevolent Society" appeared next?one of the most prominent of their banners was a large green one edged with gold fringe, and bearing the motto " Justice to Ireland.' This soci ety also numbered about two hundred. " The Hibernian Benevolent Society'' next fol lowed, and turned out quite strong, there beidg up wards of five hundred members, they were most tastefully decorated with ijreen scarfs, nnd their be'iuliful banners all were emblematical of the char acter of the society. The visits to the sick and the consolation and assistance to survivors being all de picted. These banners, like those of the other so cieties, were hung in mourning. "The American Institute.'?The members ol tin* institute followed in carriages, but there were but few, und with them closed this division. Ninth Division. This division was under the able charge ol Col. Grant and G. B.<r, Esq.. The numbers her?* also was somewhat diminished ; the first that led oil' was the Journeymen Tailors' United Benevo lent Societies," which mustered n large force. Th"ir banners contained the appropriate motto of " Ye were naked, and we clothed you," and severnl Other minor banners. The various literary associa tions, "The New York Society of Literature, "Mercantile Library Association," " American Society of Youcg Men," "New'York Metropoli tan Association," " New York Society of Letters " shipmasters and mates of vessels in |>ort; all made a most imposing uppearance with their appropriate banners. In the part of the city where we ob served the passage of the procession, some of the societies had fallen off from the plan laid down 111 the programme, but this was owing we believe to the fact that from the intense he it ot the sun, several of them were obliged to withdraw at Thir teenth street. Tenth Division. So early as eleven o'clock, this Division began to assemble, at their i.lace ot rendezvous, Centre st. Thi* Division was placed under command ot Col s. Philbrick and Hough, Aids to the Grand Marshal. The "Ironsides Association," with Mr Andrew Thompson in charge, took the lend ; and took up its ixisition immediately in front of Chambers-street, down Centre. This Society is certainly a tine look ing body ot men ; but, in point of numbers cannot be compared with many of the Civic Associations, at present in existence. We have been assured that the "Ironsides" will, erelong, have acquired a vast accession of strength ; and the Association bids fair to rival many of our most distinguished civic bodies. . , T ?? Fourth Ward Jefferson Association. ?Mr. Jas. lla^an, at the head of this Association, followed next in order. The Association assembled in full strength with appropriate banners, and looked a very respectable bony 01 men.. ??

From November, lBli, to the cessation of hostilities, he is constantly employed in creating and leading the armies fighting the f>attles, and vanquishing the en ?X off is country. It is not my purpose to enter into the details of his military exploits. Of all and of oach it may bo said that in each and in all he acquit ted himself as no other man bat Ai?oai:w Jacbsow could have done. With his first touch of tho mar shai's truncheon, the hand of one born to command at will the energies of hi? troops, to infuse into them his own daring spirit, and successfully to cope in any aud every field with the most .kiiTul andcouragcousof his enemies, is evidently seen. Throughout his whole mi litary career he exhibits infelicitous combination ail the re at qualities of a great commander?comprehensive ness and accuracy of view, genius to devise, skill and courage to execute, coolness and lelf-possession in every cmerifency, perfect command of his resources, sagacity to discover and ability to defeat the plans of his oppo nent. In his campaigns against tho Creeks, so formula ble by their numbers, their obstinate bravery, and their proficiency in all the arts of savage warfare, I* adds to the hardihood, the patience and the self denial of a Han nibal?the vigor, tho celerity, the success of a Caesar. When he plants, upon his own responsibility, tho Ameri can Kairle on the forts of Pensacola, statesmen seo that the instincts of a heart and will devoted to the pub lie weal, can anticipate tho rules of public law ; and the nation recognize and honor the clearno** of his judgment nolens than the promptitude anil energy of his conduct. In his command at New Orleans, from his arrival at the beleaguered city until his depurture from it, wo seem to lollow some heaven appointed and heuven as sisted warrior of tho anrient dispensation, rather than a chieftain of modern times Such superhuman activity; such assumption and exerciso of power; such chivalrous daring ami consummate address in striking the first blow in the unequal conflict; such cautions preparations lor t le linal struggle; such perfect success in its triumphant issue; such frightful havoc in the troops of the enemy, and such almost miraculous pre .civation of his own; who, in these things, does not see tho hand of Ood. the agency of an instrument ordained.prepare.l.and guided by Himself / I must content mvielf with the briefest pos^ble reterence to the war with the Seminole*, in l$I7-ld. It the exploits of Jackson in this campaign had constituted nis whole title to military renown, they would have been amply sufficient to place him high on the roll o! fame. How does it enhance the estimate ol his formei achieve ments, when it is considered that the Seminole war is scarcely thought of in the comparison; and that Jackson is seldom named in connexion with it, except by those who refer to it for the purposo of denouncing him lor the exe cution of Ambrister and Yrbuthnot! Having named this incident, I feel it right to state my entire conviction, that in this, as in every other act of his public life, lie pr<> ceeded under a deep sense of what ho believed to be the injunction of duty ; and duty was ever to him as the voice uf Heaven. "My Ood would not hrvo sinilod on me. ' (was his characteristic remark, when speaking ol this sft*ir to him who addresses you) "had I punished only the poor, g lioiant savages, and spared the white man who set them on The hour has at length come when lacksou believed i e may a second time retire to ruialoccupations, without danger of any further call to engage in the service ol the Union. The nation is at peaco with all the world ; the Indian tribes have been reduced to submission ; peaco reigns in all our borders, and tranquillity throughout the land. He resigns his commission in the army ; retuses the apiK>intmcnt of minister to Mexico, conferred on him I.y Piosident Monroe, not only because he desires no ol lioe of emolument or honor, but becanso he will not coun tenance, by his presence at the court of Itfisnw, ?'? substitution of a mouarchy in place of a republic, nor the means by which it has ^ee" effected. Other reasons concur, to enforce the step he has taken. Incessant toil in the vaiious duties of his command?ex posure to the hardships of military service in the warm climates of the South, anil es|>ecially in the swamps and morasses of Florida?have undermined his constitution; and retirement seems as needful to the preservation ot his own life, as it it to the happiness of tho*e who have so long been denied tha pleasure of his society. He does not deem it inconsistent with this feeling, to accept the iiHice of Senator in Congress, again conferred on him by his beloved Tennessee: for this honorable and compora tively easy service will still leave him, the greator por tion of the year, an inmate of the Hermitage. Hut his mission is not yet ended. " Peace hath her victories, No loss renowned than war." \nd many such victories he is yet to win. By spontane ous uprisings of the people, in his own and other States, he is presented to the nation as a candidate forthehigest trust. Though not at first invested with this dignity, his three competitors, each long and honorably identified with the civic service of the Union, are lett behind him in the race. In due course of time another contest ensues. He is raised to the Chief Magistracy by more than two to one of the electoral votes. I In surveying, from this high eminence, the field ol duty to which he has been called, he perceives that with mnny foreign States we have unsettled subjects of dis pute, growing out of claims to justice long deferred, for spoliations olour comraorrc, during that reign ol law less violence which, in the beginning of this century, disgraced and barbarized the maritime wars of Kurope. He sees that unless speedily adju?te I, they will e<cp'?-e us to the alternative either of sacrificing our national honor or of vindicating by the sword our unquestionable rights. Ho resolves that this state of things shall not continue; that 110 needless delay, 110 evasive subterfuge shall be allowed, that he will procec I. with all possible despatch, in the prosecution of his duty, " asking nothing that is not right, and submitting to no thing that it wrong;" and he believes that il this course be steadily and wisely pursued, peace will be preserved, and Justice he obtained. The result shows the sagacity of his conclusions. One after another, treaties are made and ratiflo I, hy which the-e subiecs of irritation, so grave and so dangerous, are all, at length, happily disposed of. In one case only is there any serious delay ; but this is the most important of them all ; for 4 is our ancient ally, the beautiful, the brilli int France of our own Lafayette, that neglects the performance of her duty. Jackson does not hesitate or waver in his course He deals with the greatest and most h?no?ed as he would havo dealt with the weakest and most humble ; ho tees to it that while the res|>ectful courtesies due to so distinguished a delinquent, are sedu, lniisly observed, no Jot or tittle of thh national honor Is lo?t or compromitp I In the end justice H secured ; the faith of treaties vindU'.a'eil-, the 1 e?ce ol Empires preserv ed. snJ France herself, on a fuller understanding of his conr c.does I101101' w itli r.h iracteristlc chivalry and glace, to tho " is/t dcJtr ?too iron will of the stern old man " His name through Europa rings, Filling ench mouth withe ivy or with pram, And nlllieijedou* mo isrcln with soxze, And 1 amors loud th it d milt remotest ai'igs ; and by his eoeigy and renewn our national character israi od to a height or glory never before attained by the American Kepnblic. In the meantime Jackson has been involved, at home, in conflicts protracted and se veie hired with the love of democratic liberty, and filled with /.eal for the constitution, he pursues sys tems of policy, and adopts a course of measures, which hrlnir on violent collisions with the interests passions, and prejudices of men in different quarters of the Union. In th? midst of the outbursts of paity , produced by the?e collisions, ho is re elected by a vote of three to one over all the other candidates, although the state of his nativity, formerlv foremost in his support, withholds her approving voice.
