I*uninlinirut of r CorpM1, The following account of the revival in Eng land of a custom supposed to be extinct in civ ilized countries, we take from the Loudon Morning Star. The idea of punilhini/ with in dignity the lifeless remains of one whom mad ness or despair has driven to self-destruction h is iu it something so monstrously barbarous that we had suppqsed it to no longer have a place in a community claiming to be Chris tian. It seems, however, to still find lavor with English juries. It will be observed that the writer of the following evidently considers the omission of the stake part of the ceremony as all that was necessary to bring it up tq the standard of English humanity and propriety: Now for the first time wilhin a quarter of a century, Norwood Cemetery was last midnight the scene ol the burial of the corpse of/do de sc without Christian rites. The coroners’ jury, which last evening at six o’clock found that the commercial clerk, William George Williams, had committed the crime of self murder, im posed upon kfr. Sargent Payne the necessity of issuing his warrant for the burial of the body by torchlight between that time and midnight. The last verdict of /do de se re turned at Guy’s hospital was in the case of a person that died there twenty years ago, and on that occasion the horrible form of driving a stake into the body was gone through. The ghastly ceremony was performed iu the burial ground adjacent to the hospital, and is said to have been almost the last instance in which that ob olete barbarism was exercised in Lon don. Lest the the tradition should be, by any misconception, carried out in the present ease, the coroner expressly ordered that mi stake Should be gsedi About nine o’clock last night a common mar ket cart, drawn by an old horse, emerged from the hospital gates. The end of a deal coffin hung over the tail-hoard, and the name‘•Wil liams,” written on it with a piece of chalk, showed that it contained the body of the sui cide. In the course of an hour the cart, with its burden, was drawn up on the highway alongside a hedge a$ Norwood, •The night watchman at the cemetery was called, and in formed of tile business on hand. The func tionaries at the cemetery were just going to bed, and were completely taken by surprise by the production of the warrant for an immedi diate burial so late at night, lor a case of the. kind hail not occqpred therd for twenty-six years. Mr. Gardiner, the superintendent, sent messengers to the neighboring house, anil was fortunate enough to find two grave-diggers there. These men were promptly set to work to dig a grave at the southeast corner of the ecmetery, beneath some lime trees. When the grave was deep enough tho cart, which had been left out on the high road, was driven into the grounds. The men unceremoniously lifted the coffin from the cart, and guided by the flickering light of the lanterns, earned' it to the roughly-made grave. The excavation was long- ! er than the coffin, and at either end near the I bottom, a candle was stuck into the earth, | where, screened from the wind, which blew strongly and whistled through the trees, tliev \ east a sickly light upon the yeljuw clay. The coffin was lowered into its place by means of j topes, me earth was instantly shovelled in and ; stamped down, the lights were put out and all was over. An English .Journal observes: “The Queen j gi Sjpaiu h:’rs, it is said, announced that she i will make no concession, hut will ‘sacrifice her | body, if thareliy she may save her soul.’ This ' is what her M ijest.v says, hut what she means ' is, that she will sacrifice, lor the sake ol' her soul, any number of the bodies of other neo pie.” I LATEST NEWS BY TELEGRAPH TO THE PORTLA1VD DAILY PRESS.

Crowds ! of curious spectators are on shore, and others in boats, cheering. Three steamboats with many visitors have come down from London to witness the scene.
