It is melancholy to contemplate the histo

fate that awaits hi nr. Surpassed by none in
literary acquirements, he stood almost with
out a rival in the estimation of his country-
his political adversaries acknowledged with'
pleasure, it is said, at the Iwfut-moment
when f.itc had summonrd him' to the field,"
gave testimony in the presence of judjje
Pendleton, of Burr's unequalled greatness,
and confessed the superiority of his mind. "
, Of what a treasure has ambition robbed
our country! America had "destined him to
be her protector and lier friend ; but his evil
stars marrrd his better fait. What ablest
aing might he not have been to his ceuntry.
The morn of his youth gave promise otaf
ploriousjrinnhood, and his meridian splendor
for a, while attracted the admiration of his
countrymen. He was rapHly r.sremiing fo
'the achme of hnmi'n gres'ness- But he
fell; and' the-evening of his days, will be
one continued scene of midnight gloom.--
