4 SALMON P. CHASE. The Chicago Bench and Bar Pay a Tribute of Respect to - His Memory. Meeting of the Profession at the La w Library Yesterday V•; j Forenoon. Resolutions of Condolence and Sympathy Adopted. Eloquent Remarks by Judge Drummond, Hon. 1. Sivctt, Judge Trumbull, ■ Hon- J., E. Doolittle, ‘ Judge Williams, and Others. The meeting of the members of the Bench and Bar. of Chicago, held in tho Law Library rooms, yesterday forenoon, for the purpose of taking' suitable action in regard to the death of the late Chief Justice of the United States, was called to order by Jesse O. Norton, who nominated Judge Drummond as Chairman. ;' JUDGE DBDSIMOSD " was elected, and, upon taking the chair, address ed the meeting as follows : flw»T.gMgv; Wa hare met this morning as rep resentatives of the Bench and Bar of this city, to pay a tribute of respect to' the memory of: a 'man who has been eminent for his . virtues and worth as a for his ability and integrity as a member of the profession to which we all belong, for the slriil and success of his administration of the af fairs of e great state as its chief executive, for his dis- Unction as one of the great legislative body of this na-'. tio a, and as a member of the Cabinet during the most evantfu* period ©f our history, and who was also dis tinguished as the Chief Justice of the United States, It is fitting therefore, when such a man departs from among us, who has filled offices so many and so varied, with such' high honor, that we, who belong to a profession of which he -was so .great an .orna ment, should meet together in the way that we have, to-day, to testify as a body our appreciation of the great example which he has set before us and before the nations I coll upon you, therefore, at this time to carry out, in its just and proper sense, the ob ject of the meeting for which we are assembled. judge Regers moved that: the Hon. Charles Hitchcock bo elected Secretary, but that gentle man not being present, B. F. Ayer, Esq., was chosen. Judge Trumbull then moved that the Chair appoint a committee of seven to draft resolu tions expressive of the sense of the meeting. The motion was agreed to, and the Chair ap pointed as such committee Judge Trumbull, Judge Blodgett, Judge Gary, Mr. McCegg,' Mr. Goody, and Judgo Gcokins. HOW. LEONARD SWETX then spoke as follows: . Mb, Chairman ; I remember in childhood to hare read an allegory of life, representing throngs of people crowding over a bridge full of secret drawers and trap doors, upon which the -traveler. ignoranUy stepping, fell through and disappeared in the flood below. Each. passenger as his companion fell paid no heed, but, seemingly as secure as though not warned, .pursued his journey, some with frivolous gaiety, some with unseemly rioting, and all careless of where they stepped. The throng was represented as children when they entered the first span of the bridge, middle aged in the middle of it, and old os they tottered to-, wards the opposite end.' The pit-falls were the thickest and the disasters most frequent as the throng entered. in childhood. Towards the middle there was a meae-; nre of security, but at the opposite end the dangers, thickened again, Until the foremost old man, tottering with his cone, and failing to complete the passage, finally fell, and was engulfed in the waters below. The' lesson of my dog-eared book has followed me through life, and lam again reminded by ibis occasion of the lost section of the bridge of life we are all rapidly ap proaching, and the dangers which a second time begin to thicken, whereby our fall into the unknown is ren dered nearer and more immediately certain. The distinguished gentleman and jurist whose mem otywe have assembled to honor, although especially and personally.warned, stepped upon the secret pitfall when he was only rounding to the fullness of old ago, and,*in the midst of hopes and the busy plans'of life, his foot made the fatal step and he was gone. We have nßgprnhiAfl to pause a moment midway the bridge, startled by bis fall from our ranks, but soon we will go on again and walk the dangerous path until each one’s foot in turn will trip, and we shall follow him. Every man in our day and country develops char acter recognized and felt in bis home circle, pervading his surroundings, and impressing., itself upon the younger minds of his hearthstone. Every man also in a greater or less degree has a public life, and within the sphere of its influence the community or class reached by it rejoice in his success and share in his defeats,- even though the individual upon whom the interest centres is personally unknown. To-day, while the children and nearer friends of the Chief Justice of the United States are bearing his body to the grave, and over his remains are paying their lost tribute of affection and respect, who have lived for many years within the influence of his public life, and especially we who stand in that profession, the highest rank of which be attained, have not.assembled to sorrow for him as a friend, but to pay • a tribute of respect to his public services and recognize those vir tues which constituted the adornments of hiapnblio lof. - - '• Although Chief Justice Chase was eminent in the le gal profession, and died a jurist of the highest Ameri can rank,- lie will live .in posterity as a statesman rather than a Judge. . He was the father of the Ameri can dollar. Values at’other times, and elsewhere have represented something in the eye* of the world, in trinsically precious, and in which the value remained :EOtwilhstandtng the party issuing it might prove faithless.' The great' Secretary’ was the first to issue successfully values based wholly upon faith, and the ■timeis not far distant when the honor of our people •win make this ideal dollar of America rank with the gold dollar in every market in tho world, *• • • •As Mr. Chase came to. manhood, he was among the first and few who saw that the slaves in America were destined in our day to become free men on American coil. All of us have * been anti-slavery men in, a limited sense. We opposed the extension of slavery’; we encouraged every proper limitation, but drifted along with, the movement without realizing whither we were tending, and scarcely* believed the slave ever would be free until long after the prodamo-' tion was made.. Mr. Chase from the beginning waged a . war of ex termination, and fully realizing that ** a house divided ngsinst 'itself -could not stand,” v believed it would ctand because it would cease bo divided. "The names of Lincoln, Seward, and ,Chase will pass down to posterity with the history of slavery aud its over throw in the United fiUtes, and so long as the memory af the struggle shall remain, so long they will' be honored and rememberod.,. As he entered political life, Mr.Chase thhewintothla Treat contest all the weight pf, his bright hopes, his dauntless courage, and hia boundless ambition. His idvanced ideas soon gave him a natural leadership, and je held the position untfiliiappinicns become national: Jn personal apyearanee he.was a marked man, of jtrang frame, commanding voice, almost overshadow* •fig presence, and few men have equaled him in clear ness, logic, and force.. During thirty years of public fife, although standing most conspicuously before the rountry, and in a leadership which called forth the deepest malevolence, no.m'an can. remember the occa sion upon which his integrity in pecuniary affairs was Questioned. Still, for him, for us all, the fennel leaves crowned his.cup.' •- Notwithstanding his .marked ability, and the triumph •of that cause of which he was one of the mostpopular "leaders; notwithstanding his honesty, popularity, and •conceded fitness to adorn any station, and notwith standing the places of honor and trust he has filled con* .rinnpusly for tho last'quarter of a century, ho died .disappointed in tho great ambition. of his life. ■ mortuis nil nisi bonam.” lam not unmindful cf tho maxim, So long os one “star dlffereth from another star in glory,” it win, as I believe, be the on»« ynent and not the dishonor of the human creation, in whatever, worid.it jnar. be found, that ambition will not rest while one Mofdecai sits at the gate, or one more excelsior remains to -be attained. HU ambition ■was honorable, though perhaps extreme, and without ft the nation would have ~ lost his public growth and derviceti.

V mb. nrmmm.T.. Judge Trumbull then spoke as follows': -"T , ***• PRESjnmiT ? In presenting these resolutiousit *batJ* fnend and acquaintance of the tie Chief Justice for many years, should say some ffiing in their support, When a man so. distinguished passes from among ns, they whoa he temporarily leaves behind, and who have bcen profited by his so? • |onm among them, should pause for a moment^to’ consider what were the characteristics which his existence a benefit to • mankind,. and which should pp held no as examples for others to'follow.; Chief Justice Chase via a'mafked.m&ni andlike most men* -who rrlse to eminence In free r.countries,- and specially in our own, wasj under Proyidciice, the archi tect of hia own fortune. Unincumbered with wealth or position si the start, he commenced the journey of life with a resolute purpose to win his way to useful ness dittHTiftHnti by earnest effort and persevering labor,' -Endowed by nature with a vigorous constitu tion and large mental 'pcwbnv with • perseverance, so briety, and virtue,' 1 success was sure. All these henad, and few men have been able to adapt themselves more readily to important and varied trusts than he. Daring the last third of a century he filled many responsible positions calling for different orders of., intellect, and discharged the duties of each with sighs! ability and success. I first made his personal acquaintance about fifteen years ago, though 1 had corresponded with him previously. He left the Senate of the United ‘ Blaics just as I.entered it, and did not return to Wash ington to • assume -official position till the spring of 1861, when he gave Tip tho-seat in the Senate to which bo had then just been elected to assume the position of-Secretary of the Treasury under Mr, Lincoln’s administration. This was to him a new position, and the time at which he took possession of the Treasury Department was the most critical in our financial his tory. The Treasury was bankrupt and without credit. Hia- success in l restoring its credit and supplying tho means to carry the country through the great war, astonished both ourselves and tho world. He it was who issued tho 7-30s and popularized tho National loans. It was under hia auspices that Na tional Banks were established, and tho financial sys tem inaugurated by him has been continued substan tially ever since.' Whether a system, which was neces sary and proved successful in time of war, Is best adapted to a condition of peace, or would have been continued by him bad he remained at the head of the Department, Ido not propose to inquire; but such is the fact, that but little change has been made in our financial system since he left the Department. The . Government has bad two groat financial Secretaries since its existence,—Alexander Hamilton and Salmon P. Chase,—and too much praise cannot be awarded the latter for his successful management of the Treasury daring tho great rebellion. ’ s. As Chief Justice, he presided oveb the Supreme Court with .dignity, ability, and . impartiality, and proved himself no unworthy successor to Tanoy and Marshall, than whom no country can -boost two more eminent jurists. - - Some two years ago his health failed, but such was his strength of will and desire to dis charge the full measure of public duties, that he strug gled against disease to the very last Having a few days ago closed a six months’session of the Supremo Court, hie work for the present being -done, he went to Kew York, as the sequel shows, to die. at his daughter’s bouse. Thus passed away one of tho ablest, purest, and bosk of our public men. Through a busy life spent in the pubhc service, no stain has ever attached to his official « conduct, and his private life was pure and without reproach, Hia death adds another to the list of eminent men who rendered .the country signal service in tbe-Cabinet during the great rebellion, and have since passed away. - > ■Lincoln was taken off by violence, 1 and of those who. stood around him here, Smith, Bates, Stanton, Seward, and Chase,'a majority of his advisers have now Joined ; hlin upon the other side. Noble men, patriots and 'statesmen, they all were, and all rendered their country 'signal service. Let.ua thank God that such men have lived, and, inspired by their example, strive' to make our lives such that, departing, we may leave behind ns characters worthy for; others to follow, t_- • nos.’j.n DOOLITTLE. ** The Hon. James E. Doolittle then addressed. - the meeting -as : follows: . .. . Mb. President and Gentlemen of the Bench ' and Bar ; On Tuesday, last, about 10 o’clock in the morning, Salmon Portland Chase, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, died at the resi dence of bis youngest daughter, Mrs. Hoyt, in the City of New York. To-day is fixed for his funeral, and we * are here to pay tribute to his memory. The resolu tions just read, in well-chosen words, express the sentiments of the Bench and Bar of Chicago. Z rise to. second those resolutions, and to. move their adoption.* In doing so, it . may not bo-' out* of place for me, In a few .words, -to recall some of the principal incidents of his eventful life.' He was bom where many great men have-been bom, —among the mountains of New England, where fathers and mothers provide pure air, drink' pore water, and where the homely virtues of piety, integrity, and fidel ity are as pure as their' mountain air ana mountain streams. He was bom in New Hampshire, now sixty five years ago, the old Granite State, where every man, : and woman, tqo, Rooked upon honest toil with their own bands as on honoranda blessing; where they ’cherished-all the domestic relations in Christian' and republican simplicity; where, upon every farm;* * rugged' and* rockey’ though It were, . they knew no master but ' God * in Heaven; and in every household the man was a king 1 and the woman a queen. I refer to this with some em . phasis, for, next to being bom at all, the' most impor tant question of man’s life is, of whom was he bom • and of what was he bom? T do not- refer to those ! external things,.prized ed highly, which .wealth can I purchase, dying 'men can leave to. their children ; t i but T refer, to those higher qualities, those nobler : capabilities, which parents in lowly life oftener, per haps, than in high life, give to their children in heart • andbrain, in vigor and vitality, and which constitute the true nobility of nature. The speaker then briefly recapitulated' the principal events. in the life of the Chief Justice, and the part which he had taken in politics and the administration of State and national affairs. The measures intro duced by him as Secretary of the Treasury still con trolled our financial policy, and however much men might have differed in times past, all row accorded tq, him the highest order of ability and impartiality. As Chief Justice, hla opinions were clear, his style chaste and elegant, and, what was of the first importance, . generally concise and to the point. One incident in bis life could never be forgotten. He presided at the trial of the impeachment of President Johnson, The speaker could not forget the fair, impartial, and digni fied manner in which Mr. Chase conducted that most important trial, Mr. Doolittle then concluded as fol lows : But suddenly that summons which awaits all, and which, when it: comes,admits of no denial, and will take no denial from high or low, has called him hence. His life record upon earth is closed. That belongs to' history now. "He was a professed Christian, and we trust that he has entered upon the higher and the the better life; Upon the whole, Mr. Chase was among the groat men of our time; ambitious, it is true, in the highest degree, yet liia moral character was supe- ' rior to his ambition, and that kept him always true to his convictions. He was strong in party affinities, but stronger still in his lovo of the truth. His faith in its ultimate triumph was strong enough to enable him to bear temporary defeat, and to submit with composure to the denunciations of those who could neither com prehend his motives nor the real issues of the hour. After some years of observation and reflection, lam of opinion the bffice of Chief Justice la the greatest under our Constitution,—not because it is an office for life, but because the man who fills it presides over a tribunal called upon* to decide graver questions than are ever submitted to any other judicial tribunal of the wqrlcL Under oui complicated system, which is based upon the idea that the Federal Government is one of delegated powers, oil, others being reserved to the States and to the people, the question must often arise, what powers are delegated, and what are re served, and where is the boundary ;* where the former began, ,and the latter end ? 'Who l£ to decide that qnestion, when it arises?- A question which involves the rights of the States towards each other, and of the States toward the Federal Government? No such question can arise in England, for Parliament is omnipotent,* but it docs arise here, and must id the’ end be decided by our Supremo Court. When called upon fo decide that question, the Supreme Court is above tho Congress and above ibe President. It is their rights and their dnty lo.declore any *law which their judgment finds : unauthorized by the Constitution null * and void. , They are also.made the-supreme judges upon the question of the extent of their own jurisdiction; there fore’ are the' courts. and - authorities of tho States subordinated to their decision, * - - Gentlemen, while we lament the death of the Chief Justice asa national calamity, let ns hope that wo may find in his successor all those great’qualities, and’ that legal learning which its duties require. ‘ Mr. : Prealdent, T second the motion to adopt' tho resolutions offered by the Committee. judge;ynjjfAMß, ■ ,V. ;: = Hie Honor, Judge ’Williams, then’ spoke as fol lows:* - '• In the distant city,'which was the homo ofiho late Chief Justice, his remains* lie to-day in their beautiful casket.. Surrounding that casket are the floral offer ings of have contributed out of their love and out of their gratitude,, On behalf of my brethren of the Circuit Court, I am asked to come now to lay my ivy wreath amid those offerings which are so abundant already. 1 shall not speak of the late Chief Justice either as a -Judge or os a statesman,* .

The results of those labors have been a scries of adjudications which , have been the honor of tiie Bench;- which, are now the property of this genera tion, and which wiil.be a rich legacy to posterity.

Soma men are ; all head, some all heart. Chief Justice Chase was a happy union of the two, and by-thathappy combination: of head: and .heart he be came .not only known, but loved, by the whole Amcri can* people. • Them is ndßoubtthat to-day the mourn ingfor the late Chief Justice is universal, andthat il is m heartfelt feeling upon the part of the great mass of .thepeople. \ ;• Chief Justice Chase possessed, in the* first place, a wonderful moral character. Underneath, and lying like .the granite upon which be had been accustomed to look in infancy, was this moral principle. It did not crop out so ‘-os. to,, offend yon,* but you knew it woe always there, • and there it would .remain,, ever unchangeable, that upon - that were engralted a simplicity of, character, and a hativo K generosity which made Mm-the object of the love of all withwhom be came in contact.l It was -this man- Itoodof which T have spoken, which ledj-.him’ in hia early-years to take the position--which he did in re gard f to human" rights, and we know that the port Which he played, in those times, .when to be an abo litionist was to make oneself an object of an animadver- sion,'an object of derision, and even of persecution. We knowthat the part'which he then took was no email one. We - know how he lent his largo heart and his active brfein to tho sup port of that cause, and how it was pushed onward till & lost it became successful. It was the gennine'manhood lying behind everything else which induced him to take such a course; and we.' all know how, at a later the dark clouds gathered around our horizon, and when' most of ns * could not sec the sun on account of them, he stood like another Atlas,'with his serene forhead above the clouds, and held upon his shcmlderathe whole* weight of the Treas mryDepartment of this Government. And-we know that ho staid there 'for' years,- neither trembling nor falling.' And when~atlast that massive finrrm whmnv .and feli,il did not do it: until the Government was saved.

Ccok then spoke aa fol lows Not fully without premonition and nolo of warning, but yet suddenly, and with a great shock, the intelli gence has come to us, that ho who was highest in place and official rank in our profession has died, and wo are called upon to pause for a day in tho activities of a Bill-ring profession to do honor to tho memory of ono who but yesterday eat as chief among us. How often, in God’s providence, do these sad events, come to warn us of tho frail tenure by which our human life Is held. The lesson is tho more impressive the higher the position and the more eminent the character of him whose departure we may bo called upoq to mourn. 'When ono who has occupied so grave a station, and who has played so prominent a part in the history of the times, who has done eo much to mould and shape the current of events, passes away forever from our sight, as the loss is a national one, tho manifestation of public sympathy and the ocknowlcgcmcnt of public grief should bo national also. It is in itself an honor to do honor to the memory of the great and good who have filled stations of usefulness to mankind. Patri otism and publlo virtue are stimulated by recalling tho obligations wo are under to such men. I suppose, sir, that I have been designated by your Committee to speak a few words of grateful remem brance of tho deceased, chiefly because I have had the honor of a personal acquaintance with him for many years, and, may I hope, as far to have possessed some share of his personal regard; therefore I come to-day to lay my tribute of grateful affection upon his tomb. la the awful presence of death every voice save that of eulogy and eorrovr is silent. The frailties incident to our humanity, thethings which may have cliallenged criticism in the past, aro forgotten. Wo remember only the good.. .Men instinctively conceive and expect this sad memento at the grave. In the few words which I shall speak to-day, I shall not attempt to direct attention to the history of the deceased Chief Justice. I shall not attempt to speak even of his public history, I shall only allude in the briefest way to some of the events which have already been mentioned, and which may be worthy to direct your thoughts to some of the characteristics of the man, which I propose to notice. . ;I suppose, sir, that the great events in which he had : so great a part in fashioning, also had their influence, and flilod no unimportant part In molding and deter mining his own character. I remember that the first time the name of Salmon P. Chase became fixed in my memory was by the perusal of a law argument, which-has already been referred to, in defense of s fu gitive slave woman, in Cincinnati, .in 1837, —a name . then, and by that argument, acquiring a national rejv . utation, at leaet among lawyers. The prominent points In bis character, exemplified by this and other similar events in his history to which I shall refer, are these: He loved freedom; he hated oppression. He was entirely true to his convictions of. right and duty, and followed them with rare fidelity. He had a reverence for law, and, with all these, a disposition to yield everything to principle when contention would do harm. -1 suppose in sn assembly of lawyers I need not say that a young man entering upon the duties of an arduous and laborious profession, not without strong personal ambition, conscious of a genius and of power to tarn away from those beaten paths in his profession which might-certainly lead him to preferment, to espouse the cause of the poor and of the friendless, the unpopular,. despised, and the persecuted, was an act of which we all can form but one estimate. It was. a grand characteristic of the man. Likewise, prompted by the. same spirit and feeling, was his defense of James G. Blrney, arrested for harboring a fugitive, slave, occurring about the samo time. . Passing rapidly from these events, I come to the time when it was my fortune to be associated with him in the. Conference- Convention, which was the last called by the State of Virginia, and which was the last effort made to stay the tide of civil war, then threaten ing to desolate the country. It was my fortune to bo upon tho Committee appointed by thoej members of the Convention who thought as I did with the Chief Justice, and I had an opportunity of forming,.ss I be lieve, a very correct estimate and appreciation of bis character during those events. Impressed- more thoroughly than myself at that time with the danger which menaced the Republic, his demeanor in the Convention was serious, and grave, and thoughtful. His words were few, but when I 'he did speak, ho spoke with rare impressiveness and power. I remember ouo ■ short speech of his which thrilled mo, expressing, ’as it did, my own convictions and feelings. After adverting to the fact that the people of the United States were men who were accustomed to' think for themselves,, and who would not accept the resolves of. that Convention as a settlement of the questions at issue, except so far as they should embody the convictions of the people themselves, he laid down the proposition that the people of the Free States were thoroughly and conscientiously opposed to sanc tioning the institution of human slavery upon any part of the national domain which was then, free, and that no power, either in that Convention or elsewhere, would induce them to do it. He closed with an appeal to the members of tho Convention who were listening, not perhaps as generally known as his other public speeches. Prom that appeal I quote but a few words: “ You profess to be satisfied with slavery as it is, and where it is. You think the institution Just and bene ficial. The very able gentleman from Virginia (Mr. Siddon), who commands the respect of all by the frankness and sincerity of his speech, baa said that he believes slavery is the condition in which the African is to be educated up to freedom. He does not believe In perpetual slavery. He believes the time will come when tho slaves, through tho beneficent influcncorof the circumstances which surround them, will rise in intelligence, capacity, end character to the dignity of freemen, and will be free. We cannot agree with yon, and, therefore, do not propose to allow slavery where we are responsible • for it, outside of your State limits, and under national Jurisdiction. Hut we do not mean to interfere with it at all within tho State limits. So.far as we are. concerned, you can work out your experiment there in peace. We shall rejoice if no evil comes from it to you and yours. I refer to this point to show you that if we do not concede all your wishes, it is because our ideas of Justice, duty, and honor forbid, and not because we cherish any hos tility or aggressive sentiments. We will go as far as we can to.meet you ; come yon also as far as you can to meet us. Join in the declaration of principles. Your people have confidence in you ; they will believe you. The declaration made with a substantial unanimity by this conference, will . tranquilize :. public senti ment, and give a . chance, for reason to resume its sway and patriotic councils to gain a hear ings Gentlemen, Mr. Lincoln will be Inauguracd on tho>4th of March. Ho will take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the, ‘United States, tho law of all the United States. That oath will bind him to take care that the laws are faithfully executed through out the United [States. Will secession absolve him from that oath? Will it diminish by one Jot or little its awful obligation 7 Upon the question of the maintenance of ad unbroken Union, and a whom country, tho people of the Korth never were, and, it is my firm conviction, they never will be, divided. Gen tlemen who think they will be, in any contingency, will, I think, be disappointed. Mr. President, let us not rush headlong into the unfathomable gulf of civil war. Let us not tempt this unutterable woe. We offer you a plain and honorable mode of adjusting all dif ficulties, • If is a mode which we believe will receive the sanction of the people. Wo pledge ourselves that wo will do all in our power to obtain their sanction for it. Is it too much for us to ask you to meet us on tht« honorable a ndpracticable ground?” ..... Tho appeal was not responded to by the majority of that convention, and the result which followed shows how clearly- the*, author of tho appeal understood the ground upon.which we were. standing. Immediately after this ‘ convention, Mr. Chase . became as has already been stated Secretary of the Treasury of the United States. Ido not propose to speak of hia car eer in the Cabinet of Mr.. Lincoln. When called upon to provide for an army of millions ,of men—to arm and equip them with 'an exhausted Treasury, the history of thecountry is .but tho record of, his success. However men may differ *in regard to some of the features of the measures which -.wore proposed to that end, all will concedo.the rare ability with which the enormous sums of money necessary to meet the current expenses of the nation were raised; aU will concede tho patriotism which voluntarily assumed and bore up under such a terrible burden. * • A'majority ofthoso men who stood around Mr, Lincoln haye passed away. Their names have beeil called in your hearing to-day, and. Mr;-President, as our country lives, it mil ever bo their record and their monument. * There is but one other characteristic of tho late ChlW. Justice to which I shall advert. He was an bum ble arid sincere Christian, accepting th£' revelation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the revelation of 'the inind and wfll of God. Professing hia faith in that revelation, he fashioned hia life after its pure rifles of life, and after its sublime* teachings of reverence to God and benevolence to man,- . Painlessly to . pass away from, life, with life's work well,done, with a sincere and humblg faith and trust that this mortal shall put on immortality, leaving a name emblazoned upon the page of history associated with deeds of - service and benefit to man- kind, > followed by the tender mourning of the whole people, the regretful sorrow of the great and good in aU the earth, and the tearful blessings of an enfranchised race—this sir, is not to die ; it is to have life more bountifully.

Adam Forepaugh—.The Prince of Showmen* All men of force and character have some particular ambition, which shapes their lives and controls their action. Borne aim at gaining political power, and bend all their energies to effect tbh*; some strive for mill try glory; others reach after literary fame; and with many the great purpose of life is to accumulate wealth and estates. All have a favorite aim aqd ruling pas sion. and, if they possess courage, ability, and perse verance, they generally gain their end. There are very few men in our country whose greatest ambition In life has been, and is, to gain the rank and title of “Priiico of Showmen.” Bach an one is Adam Fore paugh, whose MONSTEB COMBINATION of menageries, museums, and circus, will bo exhibited on the West Side, corner of Madison and Elizabeth streets, on Monday, Tuesday. Wednesday, and Thurs day of this week, and on Friday and Saturday at the corner of State and Twenty-second streets. Mr. Forepaugh has been bo long in the traveling show business that bo can hardly remember himself when he commenced. Ho is, in every sense of the term, a “ veteran showman,” and it has been his ruling hobby all through his professional career to glvo the “ beat show “in the country. Many circus and travel ing show managers make the great aim in their business simply dollars and cents. They envelop a clown in flaming and high-colored show bills, get an immense crowd and their money, and that is the end and aim of the whole thing, as they look at it. Whether the people were satisfied or not was of no moment to them; it paid, and that waa all that was necessary. But this is not Adam Forepaugh. Asamatterof course ho wants and tries to make money out of hia business, but it is not hia ruling paasiou. To have the name and fame of giving the BEST SHOW IN THE COVKTUY is to him for more satisfactory than the simple profit. To tell him he did not give a good entertainment would be like telling a Pennsylvania Dutchman that he had a poor bam. To have the largest collection ot carious things, the rarest and most numerous wild animals, the most wonderful performers, tho largest spread of canvas, the grandest and most gorgeoas procession, Is his beau ideal of Paradise. If he hears of a strange and unheard-of wonder, a lusus natures in the shape of a monstrosity, a great mechanical triumph, or some astounding performer, he neither sleeps nor rests un til he baa secured it, if it comes within the range of possibility. Price or salary being a secondary consid eration, to get the control of the “ card ” is tho object. In the combination that he has now on exhibition he baa combined four or five or six different entertain ments. This, as a matter of course, does not include the usual amount of side shown, which, os is always the case, are numerous. Ho moves like an army. His commissary, quartermaster’*, and ordnance depart ments he carries with him. He spreads MOBS CANVAS THAN AN ABMT CORPS, Yesterday morning wo took a stroll about his estab- and could compare it to nothing but a can vas town. The huge pavilions, some five or six in number, used for the iliow proper, and the regular street ox smaller tents, used as dining-rooms, kitchens, dormitories, stables, cook-houses, otilces, &c., remind us very much of our old army life when we lived in cities of tents. The stir, bustle, din, &nd clatter of the hundreds of men employed in putting this im mense machine in working order was like what we could imagine disturbed the air around Babel or the rebuilding of Chicago. Tho en trance to this combination of amusements opens into the museum, which consists of a circle of monster wagons containing a largo and rare collection of won ders, natural, mechanical, and somo compounded of both; groups of statues representing historical celeb rities, renowned criminals, with some beautiful ideal izations. To enumerate them would TAKE A LIFE-TIME AKD FILL A VOLUME, but they aro all instructive, interesting, and wonder ful. .From the museum we pass into one of the two largo pavilions devoted to the collection of living ■' animals, which contains many specimens of these . natural wonders, from earth’s remotest corner, never before seen by ns, and we flat tered ourself that we had seen the elephant, 44 bead and horns,’* Speaking of the elephant reminds os that the ** baby elephant’’ is the 11 cutest” little chap we ever saw. Ho is, as a beautiful young lady remarked in our bearing, “ A LITTLE DAULIKO I OH I 1 WISH I HAD ZHM I” But of all the ugly, horrible, disgusting-looking things that lives, moves, and has a being, la an animal that bails from Japan, called in the vernacular of that de lightful land of the sun, the 41 Aard Vlaek.” It is of the hog species, with a head broader at the snout than at tho forehead, which it does not possess, tho eyes appearing di rectly on the top of the head, between tho ears, and have a most vicious look in them, being, in fact, the only mark of intelligence it possesses. Among tho animal specimens of beauty the ** black leopard ” and a beautiful little 44 ounaelol, n from South America, take* tho first rank. They are charming to look at, that Is if you have strong bars between yon and them. A pair of grim tigers from tho Jungles of India occupy one'half of the large cage, the other half being rented to on old African lion and his wife. The old man lion is something of a hero, having killed in one day three 44 tamers ” in tho cage. He is now over SO years of age. Mr. Forepaugh will not allow any one to enter his den, although a number of 44 lion tamers” have offered to try him again. A large cage 6f monkeys, as is always the case, attracts a crowd, who are anxious, no doubt, to see if they can, in the characteristics they exhibit, detect any evidence to convince them or TQZ TRUTH OF THE DABWIKIAK THEORY. Among other things which is. of most interest to the wonderful is a ** Uilpnti&n cow,’’ a perfect animal in every respec^—horns, adder, teats, all complete—yet not bigger than a good-sized goat. IV would make a nice little pet. The arena contains some of the finest acrobats we have ever seen. There were two in particular—wo don’t know their names—bat their feats of strength and agility were wonderful; and. In fact, so were all. The audience most have been fully 5,000, and some very distinguished personages were present, among whom we noticed President Grant, Gen, Sherman and family, Doun Piatt, Count de Chambrun, inn. risk, Senator Frelinghuysen, Gen. Butler, Commodore Goldsborougb, Lady Thornton, wife of the British Minister, besides other member of the legation, all of whom seemed to enjoy the performance very much. Take it aU in all, we think that Adam Forepaugh and Adam Forcpaugh’s Circus are an immense success, and will doubtless bo tbo ne plus ultra of traveling shows in this country during the coming season. The Fine Art Sale. Those who were unable to attend tho great sale of oil paintings on Wednesday and Thursday of last week, are notified by Messrs, Eliaon A Foster that another opportunity will be afforded on Wednesday next, at 2# and 1)4 p. m., at store No. 948 Wabaah avenue, corner of Twenty-first street, at which time tbo gems and • choicest works of this splendid and beautiful collection will be sold.
