HHP nnuTiRT as d cmc pbocessioi. first Appearance of the K. N.'t in the Pnblic Streets. Addressee by Rev. i. B. Wakely and Mr. Htlme. k Harrowing Scene at the Cemetery. SCENES AND INCIDENTS. | Ac., <te., <fco. Our citisena yeeterday witnessed one of the moat ex traordinary demonstrations ever mad* in a Christian country. Public honors on a moat magnificent ecale were paid to tbe memory of a pugilist ? a man whoae paat life baa in It much to condemn and very little to com mend. One of the moat interesting feature! of the de monstration wu tbe appearance for tbe first time in public, of tbe mysterious Know Nothing*, who turned out in great numbers, their only mark of distinction being narrow strips of red, white and blue ribbon tied with black crape in their button hole*. Their appear nnre created great curiosity ; but as no one knew any thing about them, and as they were themsslves any" thing but communicative, very little was elicited with regard to them, their objects, numbers, or why they seleeted this occasion to make their llrst appearance la public. The weather was everything that could be de aired ? warm, sunny and pleasant ? with rery little wind stirring, and every circumstance seemed to favor the friends of the deceased in their endeavors to pay fitting honors to their departed associate. This is the first time the " fancy" have ever held a procession excluiively their own, although they have formed no Inconsiderable portion ol others that have been oelebrated ; and they can felicitate themeelves on the handsome turn out they anade. They were not, however, all In the procession, as over thirty of them were arrested for picking the pockets of the crowd ; and in the very house of the deceased, It is reported a gentleman had his purse, containing $30, ?batracted from his pocket, in the hall, while tbe reli gious servioes were being held in the parlor. A number of persona arrived from Philadelphia, Bos ton, and other places, to participate In the proceedings, ftlaay of them turned out in the procession, and helped to swell the ranks of the O. U. A. .The coup d'ccil, of tbe city, during the progress of the obeequeis, was most magnificent. The splendor of tbe day? the gaily dressed crowd that thronged the sidewalks, and filled the roofs and windows of the house* on the route? the solemn music and the rich, though sombre, adornments of the various associations ?s they filed passed, made the scene one not often wit nessed nor soon forgotten, the whole make up of the procession proved that a strong national feeling was at the bottom of th* whole proceeding. This is proved by the great turnout of the native Americana and Know Nothings. Added to this was the feeling that 1'oole had been most foully murdered? killed by a conspiracy, and that, too, under circum stances that placed hin conduct in a favorable light, he ?vidently being tbe offended party. We underatand that Messrs. fowler k Wells desired to obtain a cast of Mr. l'ooie's bead to add to their cabinet, and for that purpose applied to Mrs. Poole for facilities to obtain it Hhe, however, declined giving the cast, a* ahesald her late husband's hea<l would soon garnish ths walla of every porter house in the city, and this contin gency she desired to avoid. THE SCENE AT POOLE'S HOUSE. I on* before tbe time announced, th? house of the de ceased. No. 194 Christopher street, ?u thronged by a dense orowd, many of whom war* th? female frieodi tad relatives of POole. The coffin, uncovered, ft* place! in the middle of the room, and a passage way formed from the front to the back door*, the crowd pasting through to gnw at the feature! of tbe deoeated. The widow eat at the aide of the coffin, weeping hysterically, in a man ner to mure even the stern, rough men, and eecure the warm sjmnathy and copiaus team of the female* who were present. Tom Hyer itood at the head of the coffin, crying and gobbing like a ehild. Poole's little boy, hi* brother*, sisters, and mother in-law, were a Lao in the ' room. The dictated was dressed according to hi* dying teqneat, in a plain lult of black, coat and panta, tllk ? cravat, and patent leather boot*, with the icarf of the T'nited Order of American* laid aero** hit body. He wai I < aa excellent state of preservation, only alight indica tion* of deoompoeition being risible on hi* forehead. Poole wai a (light built and rather tmall man; hi* feature* were regular, and by tome would mo b* con sidered handsome. Cndcubtedly hi* great success a* a pugtlUt depended on hi* alertness and agility rather than on hi* personal ^ atrength, which wat not Tory great. He never fought a ring fight, but eat famou* for hit success la what -1* termed a "rough and tambla," what* the com batant* are privileged to take every advantage their agility, strength or endurance given them. In tbeae affray* Poole never met hi* equal, hi* great celerity of irorement enabling him to throw hi* antagonist to the ground, and when once down he could eaaily keep hica there until he cried "enough." The coffin was of rosewood, and the plate bore the following inscription ? 0000000000000000000*9000900 ? WILUAM POOLE. O o DIJQ) o o March 8th, 1S6A, o O AQD) O o 38 years and 8 month*. o o o eoooooooooooooaooeooooooooe We understand that the age given above U incorrect, Poole being bat a little over 31 yeart of ag>\ THE RELIGIOUS SERVICER The Rev. J. B. Wakely, of the Jane street MethedUt church, commenced the Mrvioea by reading the 90th Psalm, as follows ? ? Ixjrd, thou bast been eur refuge from one fen* ration to another. Hefore the mountains were brought fsrth, or ever tne rarth and the world were made, thou art God (rom ever la?ting, and world without end. Ihou taraeet ma* to destruction, again thou sayeel, Come again, ye children of mea. Kor a thou land year* In thy light are but a* yester day ; teeing that is peat aa a watch in the night. Aa toon as tboa scatterest them they are ere* as a sleep, and fad* away suddsoljnlihe ths grata. la the moraiag it la green, aad gTuwetn up . but in the evening it is cat down, dried up, eul withered >'or we consume away la thy displeasure, aad are afraid at thy wrathful indignation. 1 hou hast set our misdeed* before thee; aad oar secret e n* in the light of thy countenance.

The dsys of our age are threescore yeart an 1 ten , and (though me* be to strong tnat they com* to fourscore years, jet Is their atrength then but labor and sorrow , so toon pasteth it away, and we are gone. Hut who regardeth the power of ;the wrath ? for area thereafter as a man (?*r?tb, so la thy Utpleasurw Ho teach ua to number oar days, that we may apply oar hearts uato wisdom Tbe Reverend gentleman then proceeded to del rev the following addreet What meaaa this wonderful gather ng '?this rast throng ?these anxious and terloua countenances' Hat aoroe awful tragedy been performed ' What ttrange calamity hat occurred' In yonder coffin tee that manlj form, arrayed ta the habiliments of the grave Sad and painful are the circumt'aac*a that have tammoned ut together. Thit is a house of mourning Heath hat been here, aad left sad traces of hie looteteps Tbe rigid limb, the pallid Hp, the silent pulse. the cold and oJtmm; brew, declare that William hmle twella tbe liat ? of death's pale realm. He has yielded to the conqueror u? eonquirors, and fritnds havs nailed ua together to bnr y their d*nd. We art about to fellow hit mangled body to the citj of the dead, aad depot it It in th* grave' a eoid boeom, where it wiU tleep until the re*arr*cti*a At aav time the death of a human Ming is aa event of In ternet, but thie is one involving a conalderat oa of great magnitude. When a man diee a natural death, by die ?we, there are thrilling Interact* that duster areund him? but whan he die* by the band of riolence? when i he Is aaea In inn ted? murdered in cold blood? then the | interest is Increased a thousand fold? become* in tease, thrilling, overwhelming This is the case here to day. , Thla crowd in tbe hensa? the rast raultitad* in the , stree ts? all atteet the deep and awful interest felt In regard to the demise of the man whoae untimely depar ture we mourn. The moet intense ageitew>ent ex lata I would not increate it?

The work of the assassin is done The work of tbo anrgton ia done One ball la extracted from hla limb? another from hi* Meading heart Tha work of the physician u done, and bia akill exhausted. The work of the nuree ia done. The work of friend* la done.

Mine baa juat commenced; full well 1 appreciate tie position I occupy , full well lam aware 01 my re apcnsibiMv. If I ever had a deaire for the wiadon that la piofliable to direct, It la now. If I im longed for I>ivine aid, thla ia the occaaion. We coma now to speak of the deceased, whoae cbaequiea are being per futmtd. Mai k Antony said, "I couie to bury Cieaar, not to piame him " I come to bury William I'oole, not to praise him. He baa gone where pralae and censure af fect him not If I uoaM eulogise him he would not bear it ? it 1 ahould stand orrr hia cold corpse and ceo Nur>- him, te ?ould be insensible to it. Ha waa born in Sussex, hew Jersey, and at the age of eighteen month* met with an iriapaiahle loaa? a lues that oould not be replaced. Heloit hla earliest, beat friend? be loat hi a u.otber. At any time the loea of a raoth-r ia great, and there ia no Iriend like a mother? no eye like a mother'* ? do voice like a mother a? no heart like a mother'*; but to lose one in infancy la a groat disaster. Who know* what be mlxht have been tf abe had livod and ?temped her own image upon biin? If ehe had II rod to mould hia character, to train him, hia mind might hare bad another biaa ? hia heart might hare early boon given to the Saviour? ha might have been a bright and shining light in the church ? a bold aoldier in the army < I Emmanuel. Thin might all have come to paaa, if ha, like 1in.-e'hy, had liad a piou* mother to have taught biui the Scripture* that were able to mitke bim wiae unto ?alvation At the age of nine hla father died with the cholera? in 1832. Than be waa doubly an orphan? a mother's amile never to enjoy ? a mother'a kiaa never to experience. Fatherless and motherless ? no one to call by the endearing name of father, or mother, or pa rent I Poor orphan? lonely orphan? friendleaa orphan I He lived with an elder aiater and brother-in-law, and wes an apprentice to the butcher buaineaa. We aee hew be commenced life ? without a patron ? without a guide? h* began to navigaU Ute'a dangerous ocean without a pilot. Mr. Poole died young, only thirty three yeara of age. It waa not evening with him, but morning. Tuna had not whitened hia lock*, nor wrinkled hi* cheek, nor palaled hi* band, nor chilled hia heart. Oh, it 1* aad t<> aee youth fall, beauty fade. What were hla char acter Utica ? He waa a man of great muscular atrength , he waa a man of uncommon courage; he did not tear the face of clay; be never knew what fear meant, unleaa he read It In the dictionary, and be forgot It then aa eoon aa he clo*ed the book He wa* a lover of hi* country? a patriot. The love of country waa enahrined in hia heart'* core. He would have poured out hia heart'* blood for hia native land. He wa* generoua to tbe needy: hia purae wa* open to their wanta. But there were alio striking delects in hia character; not mere blemishes, but radical defect*. Hia pugilistic pro pensities, ana otliera, on which I need not dwell, and which I not only diaapprove o'. but would condemn in tlie strongest language, and have done, from the pol pit and from tbe platform. It ia (aid he never gave an insult. n>r never took one. Let ua notice hia death ana it* causes. I need not dwell upon the acene* at Btanwix Hall on the 34th of February. He waa insulted, epit upon, hla country ridiculed, Urea at by several? one ball entering hia leg, another hi* heart "My God!" h? exclaimed, "lo you maan to mur der maf" It wai the moat cool blooded, diabolical, cowardly murder that ever took place in thi* city. 'Tta singular he never (truck a blow. He'never ilred hi* pistol, though he carr ed one to defend himaelf with. Art auch scenes to be re enacted v Who ia to be the next victim Y In the name of patriotism? in the name of humanity? in the name of outragea law? in the name of trampled under foot juatice ? in the name of the sew made widdto ? ia the name of the lonely orphan, we answer no! Tlie law-loving, law-abiding citizens will anawer no in the moat emphatic language He waa brought home and lingered twelve day* ? tul Thursday rootling at live o'clock. Many supposed he would re cover, and the heart of the community waa ahocked when tbe announcement waa made that William I'oole waa dead. His Bufferings were great. For many days, he, with others, suf posed he would recover; but on Sunday night he waa taken worse. When he found he must din, he gave direction* concerning hla funeral, and began to aet bis houae in order. Tie regretted moat deeply the life he had lived, and aaid, "If I waa to live my life over, 1 would live very differently." He wished hia mother-in-law to read the Bible. He aaid he waa going to die, and hoped he would not go on the left han't of (iod? he wanted to go on the right hand. "I want," ?aid ha, "to go to the good place. Do you think there ia any hope for me ?" All men want to die right, even tfcoae who have not lived right Men want to be on the right band. There was no minuter there to reaaon ol rightaouKneaa ? nane to alarm. Conscience ipoke. Memory called up the acene* of the paat life. 1 he Holy Spirit moved; and he felt that it wa* a fear ful thing to go up and meet tbe Judge. He felt it " waa not tbe whole of life to live, nor all of death to die." He eaid to hia friend Cyrua Shea, who had remained by him, " You have been wicksd aa well as me; I have been praying for you, for you need forgiveneas aa well aa I do." Ha aaid while they thought be waa aaleep he wa* praying for forgivrneea. Ha aaid, "I die a true American," ast regretted that ha had been murderad by auch a *et . but he aaid be waa forgiven, and he for gave those who murderad him, even aa he also had beea torglven. Thua died William I'oole. There ware melior sting circumstances in hia death; he died at home. Sujpoee be had died immediately at Stanwix Hall, and hi* corpse had bean brought home inatea'l/if b is wounded body. But space waa given him to reflect, to pray for mercy, to repent, to set his houae loonier; to hs did not die arooug strangers; he died among his frieads; they bad the privilege of smoothing hi* pillow, wetting hi* lips, watching by him day and night; hi* laat fou l look waa caat on thoae he loved; he died at home. There was much In the Oriental benediction, " May you die among your kindred." He dlad penitent. Suppose he bad died 'hardeued, with ao prayer for mercy. Ha died in poseession of hla reaaon; be died forgiving and praying for hla eaemieH. There la a bow of hope arch ing tills dark blowl To hia widow and orphan boy we tender our elnrere aad heart-felt condolence forever. If be had died from disease, no tears like the widow's, na aigbs like bar's to mourn his loss. To bia brothers anil alatera we tender our aincere and heart telt sympathiaa. What improvement can we make of thla aad cataa trophe V I trust it will have an influence in checking sporting gentleman ? pugilists? and preventing rowdy Ism ; that we shall get rid of this fearful, withering cur-e, that his de*th will give to this a death blow, and that men wlU caaae to (estroy each other. It ahows os the danger of carrying weapons of death. It abowa us the evil of keeping open aaloona, if they muat be kept open at all, till a late hour In tbs night. Why is it necasaary J M ? at of the murder* that have taken place In our city for the laat year, have occurred in auch establishments, and at thosa lata hours. This took plaae at midnight, between Pi and 1 o'clock on Sabbath morning. We aee the danger of being out at a lata hour In toe night. Home' home' is the place of ? loess ? the plae? of safety. Had tbe departed be>-n one with his beloved wiffr. and lovely child, his funersl would not have been attended to day, aad he would not have been arrayed ia his grave elotbea. Tbe roaaa would bave beea upon hla cheek; hia heart woald now have been ebbing and flowing with the bloo-l of lifa. We see the folly and tba danger of national praju dice. We cannot blame any man for loving his country, Rreataes tbere a man frith soul ao '.end. Who to himself hath nsver laui, Thin in mi own my native Unit A man cannot help oeing born in thla place or that.

At the conclusion of the addreae, the Reverend gentle man delivered an impreaaive prayer, In whl h be called on Almighty God to protect tbe widow and tbe fatberlea* Mrs f'oole, during tbe conttnunnoe of tba servioee, had a (It of hysterics, In one of which she cried oat : " O why dU they murder him ' If ho had only died a nalu ral death, I would not cam, but to be shot like a log ! Oh ! oh!" It wa* with the utmost dUBcnlty she could be calmed sufficiently to allow the services to proceed The coffin was then aailei down and horns to the street. THE PROCB88ION.
