'I’he lalxirsof .Mr. Llving.«ton in the com pilation of hia code were for many years unwearied and assuiiwiss. Men of inort- limited knowledge, and inferior powers, would have l»ceii unfit for such a task. M» n of less enthusiasm woiikl have shrunk Iroot it in dismav. Mr. Livingston, forimutel\ for himself and his country, braved al! d*.' fieulties, devoted to it the whoU norgies f bis mind, and bronjl't it to a hanny ccni- plctioii. Animated by the zeal of a pbilantbropist he made hitnself acquainted with the laws of all nations, and the contents of every treatise on crime and punishment whicH could be discovered in Europe. He main* tained an extensive correspondeitce with tiie most eminent, political philosophers of the age, and among others, with Bentham, by whose enlightened advice he profeicea to have largely profited. One iiictiinnt in the life of Mr. Livingston i is worthy of record, as affording a fine illus* . tratiun of tho character ef the roan. Hia ' labors connect;d tvitb the code were already fiir advanced, when his whole papers were I destroyed by fire. This happened at tea 1 o'clock at night, and at seven on the follow* I ing morning, with unbroken .spirit, he began ! his task I Few men are endowed with sucb I buoyancy of spirit, and indomitable perse* verance. ' In person, .Mr. Livingston is rather tt« ' hove the middle height. His countenance, though without elegance of feature, is pe- j culiarly pleasing, from the benevolence of I its expression, unusual at his years, whicb lights up bis eye when he discourses oa any interesting subjcct. His manners are those of a finished gentleman; yet rather, I should imagine, the spontaneoiKs result of ' an innate aud natural delicacy of thought I and feelinc, than of intercourse with poU I isbed society. To the courtsey and kind- ' ness of this eminent individual, 1 feel deeply ; indebted. It is with pleasure, that I nour ! give public expression to those sentimenfg of admiration and respect, which 1 shall ever entertain for his character and talents. I D.iMFL Websthk.—The person, how- I ever, w ho has succeeded in rivetting most I strongly the attention of the whole Union, [is undoubtedly Mr. Webster. From the ICiulf of St. Lawrence to that of Mexico, from Cape Sable to Lake Superior, his ' name has become, as it were, a household I word. iMany disapprove his politics, but i none deny his great talents, his unnvalled ' fertility of arguments or his power, evea still rnoro remarkable, of rapid and compre. ' hensive induction. In short, it is universal- I ly believed by his countrymen, that Mr. i Webster is a gr«at man; and in this niat- ' ter I certainly make ne pretensions to sigu- larity of creed. Mr. Webster w a usan oC w bom any country might well b«' proud. His knowledge is at once extensive and min ute, his intellectual resources very jfreat; 'and, whatever may be the subject of duicus. Sion he is sure to shed the light of an active, acute, and pfiwertul mind. 1 conte-ss, however, I did meet Mr. Web* ster under the influence of some prejudice. From the very day of my arrival in the U- nited States, I had been involuntarily fa miliar with his pretensions. Gentlemen , sent me his sjieeches to read. hen X ; talked of visiting Boston, the observation i followed, “Ah! there you will see .Mr. Webster.” VVhen I reached Boston, 1 en- 'Countered condolence on all hands. “ You are very unfortunate,” said my friends- , “ .Mr. Webster set out yesterday for Wash ington.” V' benever at Philadelphia anti Baltimore, it became known that I had I visited Boston, the question “ Did yr-u sea , .Mr. W ebster was a sequence as conatant I and untiring as that of the seasons. The result of all this was that the nama I of \\ elister became invested in my ear witli an adventitious cacophony. Is it not plea- ; saiit to admire upon compulsion, and the very pre-eminence of the gentleman bad b«“en converted into something of a bore- To Washington, however, I came, armed w ith letters to the unconscious source of oav' annoyance. 'I'he first night of my arrival I met him at a Iwll. A dozen people point- I ed him out to my oliservation, and the first i ulance riveted my attention. I bad never seen any countenance more expressive intellectual power. ' 'I he f'orehead of Mr. Webster is broad and advancing. The cavity beneatU the eyebrow is remarkable large. The eya i is deeply set, but full, dark and penetrating in the highest degree; the nose prominent, and well defined, the mouth marked by tha iigid compression of the lips by which tha I Now Knplanrtcrsare distinguished. When Mr. WehMer'scountenance is in repoee, tha : expression it ctinimunicati*s is al ©nco I chanjjed. His vmce is cieur, sharp and I firm, without much variety of niodulutiou ; hut when aiiiiiiated, it rings on the ear like ; u clarion. j As an orator, I should imagine Mr. Web- , stor’s forte to Ix; in the de[)artment of puro reason. 1 cannot ciMiceive his even at* tempting an appeal to the feelings. It could I not be sui’ces«ful; and he h:is too n.uch knowledge of his own powrr> to eucounter j fiiiliiro. In deltafe his very couiitenanc© must fell. Few men would hazard a volun- I tary sophism under the glance of thai eye, j so cold, so keen, no p»‘netrating, so exj>res- sive of intellectual power. A single look W'HiItl be enough to wither up a wholovolunio of hud logii'. In the S'liatc. I had. unfortuuately, no I o|i|Mirti!iiilv of hearin;: Mr. eljsfer display ' his great ^>weis a> a deUuer.
