A striking feature of the Procession was then presented in the advance of the select delegations of citizens from South Carolina, Kentucky and Massachusetts, marching abreast in three distinct columns, each of two files front, and each corps bearing rich banners, elegant scarfs, and other mourning insignia.

The South Carolinians took up the right of the street, the Kentuckians the centre, and the Massachusetts delegation the left. The former displayed an elegant banner, having on one side a portrait of JOHN C. CALHOUN, and on the other the coat of arms of their State. The Kentuckians, mustering stronger than the two other delegations, bore a beautiful banner, with a green ground, ornamented with gold and fringed with crape. The inscriptions on one side, "Our dead live in History," and "Seal of Kentucky," were at the top; two figures with clasped hands stood in the centre; beneath them was the motto, "United we stand --Divided we fall;" and at the bottom were the words, "Kentucky Mourns." On the other side was a portrait of HENRY CLAY, a perspective view of Ashland, and underneath, the words, "Our whole Country."
