The remains of the late Earl of Durham arrived at Sunderland on Saturday at six o'clock, in the Albatress yacht, under charge of the Honourable Captain Grey. The colours of the ships in the harbour, and those on all the churches, were hoisted half-mast high, and the shops' were partially closed, in honour of the late Earl's memory. The respectable men of all parties were desirous of accompanying the remains, through the town ; but his Lordship's relatives having expressed a with that time removal of the corpse to Lanibton Castle should be effected as privately as possible, it was the same evening, at five o'clock, placed on board a steam-boat of light draught of water, and taken up the river to the Castle. Crowds of well-dressed people lined the shores to witness the sad spectacle, and not a face was to be seen that did not bear marks of deep sorrow. The funeral will probably take place in a week or ten days. It is understood that, in compliance with the general wish, the arrangements of the ceremonial will be such as to afford the admirers of time deceased the melancholy satisfaction of accompanying his remains from the Castle to their appointed resting-place, the family-vault at Chester-le-Street. —Sanderland Paper.
