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-

The '.close of Stich a life, under such
circumstances,; is not an event for unmin

hearts to regret,! that he has died as he has

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

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

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
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
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

las revealed himself as the father of the
atherless and the widow's God and friend.
Mr. Hudson concluded by offering the
bllowing resolutions :

THE GREAT TAYLOR MEETING IN
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
