friends. They were met at the east end of the bridge by the rest of the company invited on the occasion, comprehending, besides a number of the neighbouring gentry, the greater part of the respectable inhabitants of the place. The Magistrates, attended by the proper officers, preceded the hearse, and a party of the Dunkeld and Stormont volunteers, who are now here on permanent duty, lined the streets. The crowd which attended was immense; men, women, and children, every one vied with another in pushing forward to witness the closing scene; they all seemed to have an interest in what was going forward, and anxious to bid their last adieu to one whom they had justly considered as their friend and benefactor. But the circumstance which above all others, will convey the best idea of the public feeling on this occasion is, that, without any orders to that effect, or the most distant hint from his friends that it would be agreeable, every warehouse and shop in the public streets, throughout the whole town, was shut during the fu neral; this was an unprecedented mark of respect, and added peculiar soleninity to
The following tribute to his memory is communicated in a letter from Perth, of date July 19.-"It is impossible to convey an adequate idea of the sorrow and regret universally produced in this place by the death of our late chief Magistrate, Mr Marshall of Glenalmond. His funeral, which was very a singular one, took place this afternoon. His remains were brought from his late residence, Bower's Well Lodge, near Kinnoul, in a hearse drawn by six horses, attended by his near relatives, together. with his Grace the Duke of Atholl, Sir Alex. Muir M'Kenzie, Colonel Murray of Lintrose, Provost Caw, and a few other
As a Magistrate, his memory will long live in the hearts of his townsmen. Without the slightest disparagement to his colleagues in the Magistracy and Council, it may be remarked, that it is impossible to turn the eye to any quarter in this town, or its environs, without some remarkable remembrance of Provost Marshall ing in view. He had a particular pleasure in planning out, and a particular energy and vigour in executing, whatever appeared to him as calculated to ornament, improve, or be in any respect beneficial to his native city. Schemes which, from obstacles of various kinds, would have appeared impracticable to most men, his prudence, exertion, and perseverance speedily effected. As a private gentleman, he was no less respected and beloved-affable, courteous, and pleasing in his manners, he was a barbarian indeed who could be at enmity with him. To say more in the way of eulogium on his character, either in public or private life, is very unnecessary-a stranger, who had never before heard of him, could appreciate it more justly, by witnessing the unaffected griefs which every countenance expressed among the thousands who attended him to his grave, than any feeble impression of it our pen can convey.
"He was a man, take him for all in all, "I shall not look upon his like again." A subscription has been opened at Perth, to raise a sum of money for the purpose of erecting a monument to the memory of the late Provost Marshall. The paper
