I THE ANDRE MEMORIAL. With regard to the Andre memorial at Bath, a correspondent informs the St. Tames's Gazette that during Dean Stanley's visit to Ameriea. he wns the guest of the correspondent's father, on the Fudson River. At the Dean's request a search was made in the vicinity to identify the place where the remains of the unfortunate Major Andie had lain before their removal to England. The search was success- ful, and a stone was erected on the spot, on which the Dean wrote the following inscription: Here died, October 2, 1780, Major John Andr6, of the British Army, Who, entering the American lines, on a Secret Mission to Benedict Arnold For the Surrender of West Point, Was taken prisoner, tried and condemned as a Spy. His death, "hough according to the stern Code of War, Moved even his enemies to pity, And both Armies mourned the fate of one so young and brave. In 1821 his remains were removed to Westminster Abbey. A hundred years after his execution, r This stone was placed above the spot where he lay, By a citizen of the States against which he fought; Not to perpetuate the record of strife, But in token of those better feelings Which have since united two nations One in race, in language, and in religion I With the earnest hope that this friendly union Will never be broken. Arthur Penrhyn Stanley, Dean of Westminster.
