OBSEQUIES TO DANIEL DEVLIN. ?m4 RmiiIom >? the Church mf M. Frwi to Xwvler?Knacral Hermom .Archbishop ?teC'lowkey?Immense Attendance -Tempo , rmry Interment ef the Kemalwa la W. 'PUrlrlt'i Calhrdruli lir The mortal remainx of Daniel Devlin, late City Cham berlain, were consigned yesterday to their temporary resting place in a vault of St. Patrick * Cathedral, after the last earthly honors of a requiem, panegyric, prooes efrm aBd the other pageantry of woe were paid to them. The handsome little church of St. Francis Xavier, West Sixteenth street, was crowded to excess long before the funeral cortege arrived from the residence of Thomas H. O'Connor, No. 13 Tenth street. At ten o'clock, the ap pointed hour for the requiem, the street in front of the church was lined with spectator*, among whom were ?any ladies. The church was draped in mourning; sable banner* on each ride of the altar bore, as emblems of Time, Judgment and Eternity, an hour glass, a trumpet and a book, with the characters Alpha and Omega inscribed upon it; skulls were worked on the black coverings ol the altar candlesticks, and tall candles flick ered on either side of the gloomy catafalque in the centre aisle. The nave of the church was reserved for the friends snd mourners of the deceased, and at the ap pointed hoar the central door was thrown open and the solemn procession passed up towards the altar silently, preceded by the colDn and pull b carers. They paused for a moment at the door of tbe church while the offi ciating clergyman, attended by a crossbearer and acolytes, sprinkled tbe coffin with holy water and read tbe accustomed prayers. The following iteiiuemen were pail bearer*-?Mayor Hoffman, F. A. Palmer, B. F. SpauJding, Thurlow Weed, Dr 3. D. Ives, James T. Brady, Eugene Kelly, W. S. Caldwell. Walter Mayer. James B. Nicholson, Henrv L. Hoguet, Jobn Bryan, Andrew Carrigan, John E. lievo lin, Edward C. Donnelly, Judge Barnard, C. M. Con nolly, Charles O'Couor. The requiem then commenced, Kee. J. Dunbresr, a J., acting as celebrant. He v. J. Thivy, deacon, and Rev. V. Bandevln, sub-deacon. A large number of tbe clergy was present, among them Archbishop McCloskey. snd Bishop Loughlio, of Brooklyn. Tbe mass selected for the occasion by tbe organ ist, Mr. A Dexsane, was Cherubini's magnilicent requiem. The choir, which consisted of thirteen voices, was assisted by a full orchestra from Klein way Hall, under the direction of Mr. Ebon. The organist con ducted the mass and played the organ pari, a feat of rnre difficulty. We have described the beauties of this wonderful requiem before, and will only refer to it again as a <*?;" d ec . ure of art in the expression of woe. The organ being placed almost at the very roof of the church marred the acoustic effect of tbe work, and the voices were not sufficient for tbe combined etlorts of the organ and orch'f tra The Rac<rdare Jem in the Die* Ire was also taken loo fast for the proper carrying out of tbe dramatic contrast between it and the preceding move ment. Excepting these blemishes the performance was worthy of the subject and occasion. The sad, monotonous antipbonal dialogues of tbe mule and feuiaio voices, carrying the mtud back to the days of funerals within cloistered walls, and silent pro cessions of cowled monks passing under gotbic archos and along gloomy corridors, were given with inexpressl olo effect. The sharp, passionate ifcrtato, relieving at intervals the walling monotone?at first strong and im petuous, as if the very soul would burst with its weight of woe. and then gradually subsiding, as if natnre be came exhausted?iound an echo in every heart. A Libera me Deminr, composed by tbe organist, followed tbe mass. It was of the sume < baracter us the music which preceded it, and was finely sung After the re quiem came tbe sermon or archbishop n'cioaxKV. Archbishop McCloskoy delivered an address from tbe altar. Be took for hi* text the eleventh chapter of the Gospel of St. John, commencing with tbe twentieth verse and concluding with tbe twenty-fifth:? Then Martha, a* soon as she heard that Jesus wss coming, et him, but Mary sat still n the hou?e. Then went and met] . _ said Mary unto Jesus. Lord", if tbou hsdst been here, my brother liad not died. But I know that even now whatsoever thou wilt ask of tlod, Hod will give it thee. Jesus said unto wspvia Wilt una vi uuu. "utt win fcivc iff uirc. iiOPUff SillU I1UIU her, thy brother shall rise again. Martha saith unto bim. I " ? that f " "* ? know that he shall rise again In the resurrection. Jesus said unto her. I am the reeurreetion and tbe life: he that be Meveth in me, though he were dead, ehall live. It was in such words as these, my beloved brethren, words bo tall of holy tendarnsm, as well as of Inspiring Mops, that our Blamed Lord poured into the wounded and bleeding heart of the afflicted Martha the sweet halts of consolation. They wars words not merely of bnmaa sympathy sad of affoqikpnate condolence, but wcrde of divine power, of infallibility, and of precious I ' and heavenly promise. He did not diadem, all God as I Mo was, to tplngle his team with those of the weeping I sister; end th& Inspired record tells us that He groaned I Ad spirit ay be stood by the grave of Lazarus, His well I beloved friend. And He that has rendered ever sacred Hew natural tributes of a sorrowing snd loving heart, and while directing grief-stricken mourners to a better and brighter world beyond the grave, He austalne through theee tears all their bitterness, and has converted wild, dsspoodtng and desolate grief into the subdued end sojA's toccata of aumble resignation, into a trusting and wwd&ladlalUt fat ft HVOStfeT H?nha alone, qor for any one time or pSZ?. that ftls^ofitfeHohsU fplnt of flbe hnviour was reserved.

And so It is, dear brethren, that In those m and mournful ceremonies at which you hare in thorn plaintive tones that have fallen on ears, in all that you have seen and fipard, ? Christ again, in His Church, show* His eom-n fnsslnw and His nrmpathy for the grieving end hearts. Ho It is that comes from afflicted His Father, a victim In expiation of tbe sins of tbe de puted ronle, tbe sins of ell men, end in propitiation of eternal mercy. His voire It Is that sounded from within the sanctuary as the miu ster chanted tbe Gospel of the dffy, "lam the resurrection end the Hie.'' "Ho that believetb in me, though be be dead, shall live, and he ?hat 11vol h and believeth in rac shall not die forever.n Thanks to tbt Son uf God, thanks to that merciful end loving Saviour for those sublime, consoling and choer log words, "He that llveth and Delleveih in me shall not die forever." Aye, even though our departed friend is dead ho still llveth; and although the tics of fond affection that bound nx to this living body have been rent asunder, tba golden thread that held tinned tbo spirits of tbe living and tb* faithful to each other is siill unbroken, and with the heart of faith we follow the spirit beyond tbe grave. If taken, ee we trust, to regions of eternal htisM, still in the sweet communion of tbe saiuts may we commune with tbe spirit ol the departed. And if, per chance, through human frailty something yet can re main to purify that soul which is to be entirely worthy ?r that Divine presence into which nothing deuled can water, even then we can assist that soul with our sacri fices and our pra> crs, and wo can mingle the teats of Walurul affection with the humble application of Chris tian faith. "He that llveth snd bolicveth in me shall not die forever." Well may we apply the words to our de ported friend. He had believed in Christ, and he lived in Christ For him the precious of flalth was I aw inheritance, a birthright He shared it in common with the par*wis from whom ho sprung, ?nh ?be children of tbe country which gave him birth, where fflsl has sssmsd always to make that hsantifnl and ampin compensation, that, white poor In the good* of this world, he hm made them rich In faith. And when kTUde adieu to Itis parental bouts in early years to ocean end make hie home in this, our beloved country, 1m carried that Ihith deep rnt In his heart and made it ever Tin animating principle of his whole life cad action. Ho bswecht with it, too, youth, health and lateilifimm, sufficient education, an honest heart, an up right purpose and an unswerving trust in Uod. With ffhms characteristics and these qualities he could hardly Tail of alUmete success. He cemmeoosd bis career with fihe obstaetaa always In the way of tbo young emigrant Yet hi wan not looking la oowsge.

The coffin, case and mountings were of tho richest description, and were surmounted by three floral em blems, worked in the most artistic manner, representing a cross, an anchor and a ham After the services in the church were concluded the funeral cortege proceeded to 8t Patrick's cathedral, Mulberry street, and the body of the lamented dead was deposited in a vault Rev. Dr. Mcaweeny read the Extquiu at the vault, the other cler gymen jiving the responses. The Mayor, both BoardB of the Common Council and the heads of the various city departments took part In the funeral services.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. Nnw Yore, Feb. 35, 1867. Several articles bave recently appeared In leading journals of ibis city and Brooklyn, relative to the Quar antine bill now pending In the Assembly, containing statements and comments which show that the purposes and scope of the bill are very little understood, and that much misapprehension exists as to what is now being done towards constructing the permanent quarantine establishment As these articles are calculated to create the impression that an attempt is being made to re-establish quarantine in dangerous proximity to some thickly populated local ity, 1 ask a brief space In yonr columns, in behalf of the Commissioners of Quarantine, to state a few facte. wh'r^ I trust will make the "Quarantino question better understood, and tond to allny public anxietv. At the session of 1863 the Legislature passed an act designed to secure the complete removal of quarantine from its former location on .-daten Iel??d, and the icon struction of a new quarantine establishment below the Narrows. The act defined specifically of what Ib is estab lishment should consist; and a reference to ita terms wilt show that a place for the detention of passengers who had been eximsed to disease, but were D?t. nituaily nick, constituted no part of It Under tho farmer svs tetn such passengers were landed and detainod upon the quarantine grounds adjacent to the Marine Hospital, until, by proper lapse of time, it was ascertained that I they might safely proceed to the city, llut this uct dl rected the sale of the whole of tbeso f7n?d'!' !nc'^i^ those belonging to the State at Soguin's Toint. and In effect prohibited their further use for quarantine pur poses. lhe State was thus left wltbont either a plaoe lor the detention of such passengers while under quar antine, or a landing and boarding station for uso by the health office, except that which would l?nl^dedby the use of the hospital ship. The latter difficulty, how ever. was removed at the following session, by amona ing the set or 1863, so as to authorise n portion or the Marine Hospital grounds to be reserved trom sale and u*e<l tor a landing and boarding station until a parma-? pent quarantine station should be provided. To meet all the other requirements of quarantine resort was tnen bad to the use of hulks and vessels, and their use has been continued from that time down to the present. Bui each season has demonstrated that, however ?ell adapted they may he for nsc as hospitals, they cannot supply the necessity for having a place on land ftr the detention of passengers under quarantlne who arc apparently well, hut who have been exposed to disease, where they may be landed imme diately upon their arrival and eecure that omet and perianal comfort, and cleanliness neces- . tHard cHESe. ThiTwas ralntully manifest | during the prevalence of chotere In the and led both the Health Officer and the C?.raml?ionere of Quarantine to earnestlv urge uponlh? introduced for the purpose, among otbor things, or meeting thia neoeaaity. ?nd it provides for taking a site for that purpose by right of eminent domain, It It can not ha acquired by purchase. It also provides for ?test ing n new landing and boarding station in the same Sanner, to he need In place or the one now located at tho old quarantine grounds. Tho eale of tho preaent one is recommended by toe Branl of Commlssionere charged with the sale qf thoee 5TOut}4s undfr the act of 1866, forreasons which eeera ""rhe^ppoelllo'to the Ml iTconflned to ibese two pro visions, aud arises in part from the fact that lt doea no, doeignate any particular localltv where these sites snail be (elected, and In part from the fact that an slou prevails that the bill is designed to provide for the selection of a ait^ for a quarantine hospital. This Im pression Is entirely! erroneous, as hss been sbrady shown In fact, thc btll strictly prohibits t he e-nding of any stck person to tho propoecd place of ?J'1?'*1!""; ether ground of objection considered with reference to the parties presenting It furnishes the very strongest argument which can bo presented In favor of passing th? bill in its present shape. l'be people of Long Island protest waiDst locating the -place of detention" on that r/land oronConey Island. A simitar prolyl against its be ing located on Staten Island comes from the people there. Isolated pointe can be round suitable for the purpose on either of those islands. It must be located somewhere, and must be on one of these islands. If it Is right to my in tbc bill that it shall not be on Sraieu Island It is eaually right and just to declare that it shall not be on Conor Island or Long Island; and If all these Islands are I excluded it is useless to confer the power asked tor. The onlv safe and proper course Is to leave the self*'"?" to a board of aompetent officers, aa is proposed In the , bill. If this is not done New York Is likely to rest at 111 longer coder the disgrace which has attached to her | quarantine system for years past. The opponents of the bill ask whv not carrv out the provisions of the act of 1863? and fcen we should ha ve a quarantine establishment on West Bank. That act simptv authorised the erection of ? hos pital there. It made no provision for ?renting a structure to be used aa a place tor the detention of nay aicept those ?rtually siok. The hos pital is new being erected there as rapidly aa the ele ments will permit, and It la confidently hoped that not manv months will elapse before it will be ready for use. Another atruatura doobtlana might be erected upon the same shoal at a suitable distance froiq the hosp.tat. to be used as a place for tha temporary detention of those ap parently well, but who may carry with them the seeds of disease. But It would be a work of considerable time to erect each a structure, and it would require more money than the Legislature would probably now be willing to appropriate. There Is aa immediate and in seeing nsee?Itv, la view of the probable reappearance of cholera, that such a place of detention be at oor s provided. It will be secured by the passage or this bill lalte pre?nt shape, and then both the sick and the well wlU be^Evtdedfor. HENRY W. JOHNSON, Counsel to the Com ml?loners of Quarantine. TK fWlIC HEALTH.

A Lack of Jurisdiction Acknowledged by the Corporation. Before Justices Daly, Brady and Cardozo. Fmil RruOtardt vr. the Manor, <tc.?In this case the de fendants appeal from a Judgment for $1,000, recovered by the plaintiff for accidental injuries sustained by him under tho following circumstances:?On tho 22d of Sep tember, 1802, atabout seven o'clock P. M., while passing along Thompson street, in this eity, plaintiff stepped upon a grata in tho sidewalk covering a circular opening communicating with a vault In front of and attached to the house. The grate turned up, and the plaintiffs leg slipped Into the ononing and was severely Injured. Tbo grate was made of three rings and two crossbars, end fastened by a chain, which, by a neglect of tho family occupying tne house, was unfastened at the time of the accideut. There was no imperfection of the grate or chain which was apparent to tbo passer hy. Counsel for tbo appellant argued that the plaintlfT should establish, through express not ee to the defend ant, the defoctive and insecure condition of the vault covering; and that Its defective condition was ot such manifest charaeter that it was negligence for iho officers of the Corporation not to have discover'd It; and that it had existed so long that notice could be presumed; that the testimony failed to establish that point. Judge Brady said tbat he was of the opinion that the city anthoritlos wert bound by n sacred duty to protect the lives of citizens, npd that it was their duty to see that police officers ascertained tbat everything was safe qn their beats. Counsel continued by saying tbat neglect on the part of tho officers of the city could not be predicated upon tbe fact that they failed to discover the Insecurity which caused tbe accident, because tbe etty had been so bonnd by the Legislature of tbe State; tbat ir a policeman wil fully refused to report tbe negligence of a ctUaen, the authorities bad no power to remove him or to puolih hist, and, therefore, they ought not to bo bold responsi ble for any dereliction of fluty or negligence id enforcing tbe ordinances of the tiTjr. ? ?? Judge Brady?The Court is of the opinion tbat the city iS 'I tbe gtreett in such a condition that they cln bokavoriea at any time of the day or night. ? Counsel for the respondent said that the grate was one of the old fashioned kind, ana the testimony showed that it waa defective. The new kinds now la use were i covers which could not be turned iRSM MHO, end he proceeded to argue tbat it was the duly of tne Oornt^H Council to adopt all tbe latest Improvements far til! pro tection of tbe lives of dtlxene, sod tbat a (himre to da so was a proof of negllgenco on their part He said U?$re wore certain porsons appointed to inspect tog (rating*, wbo nover appeared except on pay day.

Called Mtntea District <'anrt. actio* r?* eaaaaas CArsvo it tub sin situ or a ivuui ?OAT. Before Judge Benedict In the United State* District Court yesterday. Judge Benedict rendered bis decision In the rise of the steam boat Angelina Corning. This was an action brought against the Angelina Corning to recover the sum of $2,455 damages caused by the sinking of the canal boat Oswego, In May last, while It was being towed through the Kill*. The steamboat was bound from New Brine wck to New Tortc with a tew of fire vessels, among which was the Oawago, and while on the smr us the canal boat ran bard agamat a sunken rock, aa the Ange lina Corning ants about to change her < ourse towards the Jersey share. It was found impossible to draw the boat off the rock, and It accordingly became a total wreck. From tbe evidence submitted in the case It appeared that tbls rock was unknown to navigators and not upon the ? barta; la fact, there was nothing to Indicate Its existence to the parties in charge of (he lowhoat There was no evidence to show mat It was regarded as unsafe for vee* sett to approach the shore so near ae the rock was lo cated (about 200 feet from the nearen dock), and i there was nothing to show tbst any known risk was Incurred at tbe time or any precaution omitted. It was charged, however, that the tow was sllowed to hang off some distance to leeward, and thereby the Oswego ran on the rock; but It appears that the Angelina Corning had altered her course Just previous to tbe collision, and there was nothing to indicate that any danger would be incurred In eo doing. The lowhoat *?-? not a common

carrier, and even lor running on rocks not generally known common carriers are not hold responsible. It eras simply running on a rock which the allot did not know of, and Jndge Benedict accordingly dismissed tbe libel. TBI (SITED STATS* Ot ABSKrcA TS. TITS TtlOfSAXn OAMOSS OP VOLASCKS. This was a case wherein Rodman Burke was Ike de fendant or claimant of tbe property being litigated. It appeared Iron the testimony that the claimant ? a die tiller in First street, Brooklyn, Eastern District. On the 19ih ilay of January last the premises of the claimant were seised by the United States revenue officer, on the ground that be was carrying on the business of adla tiller without there being present at the time of distil lation a regularly appointed inspector, and, therefore, with the intent to d 'fraud the government of the tax on tbeiplriis distilled bv him; and also, on the further ground, that tbo capacity of the still was reported to the assessor to he two hundred and flftv gallons, when, in reality. It was of seven hundred and fifty gallons capacity, and that he (the claimant) liad, therefore, rendered him self amenable to tho law. On the trial of tbo cause the following facts wore brought out:?That tho claimant had served a notice on the revenue assessor signifying his intention to carry on the business of n distiller of spirits; that he had already filed bis bond in com pliance with the law, and that he was fully prepared to carry out all the requirements of the statute in such case maite and provided. No inspector was. however. d? tailed to supervise the distillation lu the claimant's establishment, and he (Vfr. Bnrke) proceeded to conduct the menu fact ore of liquor without the presence of such officer, making bis return to the revenue collector In person. This was the cause of seizure. Incidental to the trial questions were raised as to whether, at the time of the seizure, the matter being distilled was "spirits," as defined tiy the statute, and also as to the capacity of the "still" seized by the revenue officer. Part of the property seized (molasses) was In process of d'stillntion at i ho time of the seizure, but tho evidence did not show thai the officer had round on the premises any liquor distilled in violation of law. Counsal for tho claimant summed up the evidence, when, at tour o'clock P. If., the court adjourned till ten A. M. to day. United States Commissioner's Court. Before Commissioner Newton. In this court yoslerday four cases were called up for examination, but for various reasons they* were all adjoqrncd. In the case of the United Slates against Thomas Rogers, who is charged with using spurious brands on whiskey barrels, all the witnesses for the prosecution alisented themselves, whereupon Assistant District Attorney McGrath issued attachments for the delinquents, and they will be properly attended to.

John McNeil was arraigned yesterday at the Essex Market Police Court to answer to a charge of larceny preferred against him by Peter Reifferscbudt, of No. 68Greenwich avenue. It appears from the statements of both parties that McNeil, who is a car driver, and rosldes at the corner of avenue B and Twelfth street, provided Peter until recently with board and lodging, and had done so, McNeil says, for twelve consecutive weeks without receiving any payment from his guest Learning that Peter intended changing his place or abode, and unwilling that the nny of settlement should bo postponed beyond the occurrence of that event, he visited Peter in his room earlv on the morning of tho 24th inst., while Peter was still In that state of lan guor following awakening which postpones all effort or exertion, and blandly inquired tho lime. He was imme diately Inyited to look for himself, Peter freely extend ing his watch to him for that purpose. Having token it he qniotly put it into his pocket, and taking up an over coat from on adjacent chair walked off with both, re marking that he wou'd keep these until his bill was pa d, no remonstrance, he says, being offered by Poter to his proceeding. Notwithstanding the peculiar ctrcum stsnees of the alleged larceny Justice Mansfield thought It best that another oourt should pass upon Its merits, and accordingly held McNoil in $600 to answer.
