I . - r i ' - ii i The SpCAKEtt!(the Hon. R. C. Wirithrop) rose, and in a feeling and affecting man ner addressed jie House as follows : Gentlemen of the o Repfesentatitei of the U.S.: It has been taught fit that the Chair should announce officially to the House, an event airealjy known to the members indiv-duay ap( which has filled all our hearts with sadness. A seat on thjk floor has been vacated, towards which! bur eyes have been accus tomed to turn With no common interest. A voice hasten hushed forever in this hall, to which Kll ears have been wont to listen with profound reverence. A venerable! form has faded from our sight, around Which we have daily clus tered with an ftflectionate regard. A name bas-been stricken Irom the roll of the living statesmen of our land,: which has been associated for more than halt a century with the highest civil service, and the loliiest civt renown, ' . On Monday,!the 21st inst., John Qcixcy Adams sunk inlhis seat, in presence of us all, by a sudden illness, from which he never recover ; and he died, in the Speaker's roorfri at a quarter past seven o'clock last evening, with the officers of the House and the delegntion of his own Massachusetts ground him. Whatever advanced age, long experi ence, great ability, vast learning, accumu lated public honors, a spotless private cha racter, and a firjTi religious faith, could do, to render anyjpne an object of interest, respect, and fldmiration they had done for ih's distinguished person ; and inter est, respect, and admiration are but feeble terms to expreill the feelings, with which the members oil this House and the peo ple of the country have long regarded him. j j After a lifel bf eighty years, devoted from its earliest maturity to the' public service, he has at length gone to his rest. He' has been pHjvileged to die at his-post; to fall while ill She discharge of his du- ifir tl ; antl -ut tlie po onfrrritig W the ties ; to expirtf Capitol ; and to cialed lore vert i; beneath the roofof the have his last scene asso history with the birth day of that illustrious Patriot, whose just discernment brought him first into service of his cwuntryj The '.close of Stich a life, under such circumstances,; is not an event for unmin gled emolions.l I We cannot find it in our hearts to regret,! that he has died as he has died. lie himJsllf could have desired no other end.

But we might almost bear him xclaiining, as he left us in a language hardly less familiar to him than his native tongue Hoc. est, nimirum, mag is f( lie iter tie vita mig rare qunm ?nori." It is for others to suggest what honors shall be paid tbjhis memory. No acts of ours are necessary to his fame. Hut it may be due to ourselves and to the coun try, that the national seiise of his charac ter and servictls should be fitly commem orated. . j i W hen the Speaker concluded Mr. HUDSON, of Massachusetts , rose and addressedithe House as follows: Mr. SrcAKEit I rise with no ordinary emotion to perl)rm a painful duty, which vate secretary. Here he remained till October, 1782, when he left Mr. pana at St. Petersburgh, and returned jlhrotigh Sweden, Denmark, Hamburg, and Bre men, to Holland, where he remained some months, till his lather took him to Paris at the time of. the signing of the tfeaty of peace in 1783. From that time till 1785 he was with his father in Englarjd, Hol land, and France; during the -whole of which period he was a close student. At the age of eighteen, at his bwn re quest, his father permitted him tb return to Massachusetts, where he entered Har vard University; and was graduated in 1787 with distinguished honors. Soon af ter leaving college he entered the office of the celehrated Theophilus Parfeons, af terwards Chief Justice of Massachusetts, where he remained the usual period of three years in the study of the. law, when he entered the proiession, and established himself at Boston. In 1794 Gen. Washington appointed him resident minister to the United Neth erlands. From that period till 1801 he was in Europe, employed, in diplomatic business, and as a public minister in Hol land, England, and Prussia. Just as Gen. Washington was retiring from office, he appointed Mr. Adams minister plenipoten tiary to the Court of Portugal- While on his way to Lisbon he received a new com mission, changing his destination to Ber lin. During his residence of about three years and a half at Berlin, he concluded an important commereial treaty with Prussiathus accomplishing the object of his mission. He was recalled near the close of his father's Administration, and arrived in his native country in Septem ber, 1801. In 1802 he was chosen by the Boston district to the Senate of Massachusetts, and soon after was elected by the Legis lature a Senator in Congress for six years from March 3, 1803. He remained in the Senate of the United States until 1808 when he resigned. While in the Senate he received the appointment of Professor of Rhetoric in Harvard University, an of fice which he filled with distinguished ability. In 1809 he was appointed by President Madison envoy extraordinary and minis ter plenipotentiary to the Court of Russia, where he rendered the most important ser vices to his country. By his influence with that Court he induced Russia to of fer her mediation between Great Britain and the United States in the j war -of 1815 ; and, when the proper timfe had ar rived, he was placed by President Madi son at the head of five distinguished com missioners to negotiate a treaty of peace,! which was concluded at Ghent in 1814. Mr. Adams was then associated with Mr. Clay and Mr. Gallatin to negotiate a corn commercial conversion with Great Brit- We tender to his afflicted family our heartfelt sympathy, and assure them that a nation's tears will be mingled with theirs. And while we look for consolation to the wisdom and goodness of an over-ruling Providence, we would affectionately com mend them to that eracious Beins who las revealed himself as the father of the atherless and the widow's God and friend. Mr. Hudson concluded by offering the bllowing resolutions : Resolved, That this House has heard willi the deepest sensibility of the death in this Cap. Hoi ol John Quixcy Adams, a member of tlie House Irom the State of Massachusetts. Resolved, That as a testimony of respect for the memory of this distinguished statesman, the officers and members of ihe House will wear the usual badge of mourning, and attend the hi. neral in this Hall on Saturday next, at twelve o'clock.

The New York Courier of Wednesday has a detailed account of the "Independent Meeting of the friends of Gen. Taylor" held in that city on Tuesday evening. The Hon. Judah Ham mond presided, assisted by forty-four Vice Pre sidents. The Courier says that Military Hall in the Bowery, the building in which the meeting was organized, was so crowded that another meeiinir was formed in the stieet, of which A. Sydney Doaue, Esq. was chosen President. The speakers at the street meeting were G. A. Halsey, Esq., Col. Brucu and oth ers. Soon after the organization of the meeting in the Hall, an address was read by James A. Van Allen, Esq., amid frequent bursts of appfause. The closing paragraph of the address is in these words : vance, to support him. The following resolutions ;vere adopted : Whereas, the near approach of the time when the People of the United States will be called upon to elect a new President, renders it proper that they should meet in their nrimarv assemblies to confer with each other, compare I opinions ana preferences, and give utterance to their honest convictions : Therefore, it is Resolved, That we, the Whigs of the City of New York, regard HENRY CLAY, of Ken lucky, as the most eminent; champion ot our ('.un-iiPR-, we counae in mm as a Statesman, admire him as a Patriot, and love him as a Man, and believe him the fittest of all men to lead ihe Whig array in the great con test now swiftly approaching. Resolved, That ibe public life and services of Henry Clay duiing ihe last half century, and we uusl not yet near their termination, afford to ihe por and friendless youth of America a most cheeiful encouragement and striking example ; and we point the young men of our land to that life, and to that universal respect and general admiration with which our great Leader is now regarded, as afTording the fullest evidence that Virtue and true Patriotism, although they not always ensure success and raise to the most exalted station, are not yet certain to be re. warded with that which gives to Success its highest zest, and to Station jts only just value. Resolved, That in War mud in Peace, in Congress and in the Cabinet, as a debater and a diplomatist, Henry Clay has for the last thir ty years stood unsurpassed among the States- men of America, and we cannot understand how any man should be willing to vote for any Whig as a Whig, yet he unwilling to vote for Henry Clay. Resolved, That the Whigs of New York are neither afraid nor ashamed to avow full) the principles and objects for which they have so j ardently and untitingly struggled; and while in 1819 neither would the United St; j Court have confirmed him in it aftt r j had been granted. e i ' Ihe Cast Iron Plowshare wait invent? by Robert Hansom, of Ipswich.
