OWEN L0VEJ0Y, IN THE HO rSF OF It EFBJESM2TTA TIP FS. BV H18 COLLEAGUE HON. JE. H. WASHBURN, of Illinois. Mr. Speaker:—It becomes my duty to an nounce to the House of Representatives the death of the Hon. Owen Lovejoy, a Representa tive in the Congress of the United States from the Slate of Illinois. Mr. Lovejoy expired in the city of Brooklyn, N. Y., on Friday evening last, March 45, 1864. A man of an iron consti tution. he had always enjoyed the most robust health until a short time before the expiration of the last Congress. He was then stricken down hy a sudden and severe illness whioh de tained him at the capital for some time after the Congress had expired. Returning to his home, lie partially regained his health during the last summer and autumn. Taking his seat m Congress at the commence ment of the session, in the hopeful amt buoyant feelings of his nature, he flattered himself with the idea of health recovered and energies re gained, but there was something in his altered look, which, even to the unpracticed eye, told of disease and death; creating in the minds of friends thegravest apprehensions. During tlicbol idays, in response to the pressing im itations of friends he visited Portland, Maine, and delivered a public, address on the great events which are now challenging the attention of the country and of the werld. It was his last effort at public speaking, and it was worthy of his name and his fame in his palmiest days, und the news of liis death will reach that delighted auditory be fore the accents of his eloquent utterances will have died away. Coming hack to Washington alter the recess of Congress, he soon had a return of the disease which had prostrated him nearly a year before. After several weeks’ confinement tb~ his room and to his bed, he had so far recovered as to be lieve himself able to partially resume his duties in this House. He attended our sittings a short time for several days, but his eye had lost its brightness, and the unwonted and ghastly pal lor of his cheek told, alas! but too plainly’ that Death had already marked him as its early vic tim. Stimulated by the stirring events of the passing hour, the important legislation of Cou gress, and the claims of a constituency whose interests he had never neglected or betrayed, und whose convictions he had never misrepre sented, the effort he made to resume his duty among us was too much for him. A partial re lapse was the consequence, and then it was de termined that he should for a time, leave the ex citement of the Capitol and visit a more genial climate in the hopethat his shattered and broken health might yet be restored. He left here for New York city some t*n days ago, but the trip thither was too hard for him to bear, und he was unable to pursue his journey further. From that time lie became rapidly worse until he expired at the time I have stated. Though dying away from hits own beloved home, he was yet surrounded not only by kind and sympathizing friends, but by members of his own family, and the pangs of his parting life were assuaged by the affections and the care of a devoted wife. Mr. Lovejoy was born at Albion, in the State of Maine, on the 7th day of January, 1811, ami was consequently, at the time of his death, a little over fifty-three years of age. The son of a Congregational clergyman in a country town, his early life was devoted to labor upon a farm und to the acquisition of such an education as lie could obtain at a New England "district school.” He entered Bowduin College at the age of twenty-one years, and renfkined there- for three years, and then entered- upon the pursuit of theological studies. He removed to Illinois in 1836. In 1839 he was ordained as pastor of the Congregational Church at Princeton, in that State, and remained its pastor nearly seventeen ■ years. It was his only charge, and he there proclaimed, according to his own statement, the “everlasting evangel of the fatherhood of God, the aouship of Christ, and the brotherhood of man.” His first entrance into political life was in 1854, when he was elected a member of the lower house of the Illinois Legislative Assembly. in 1859 he was first elected to (.entrees for the Third Congressional District of Illinois, and he was twice re-elected from that district. In the re-districting of the State iu 1861, he was again elected to the present Congress from the fifth district, having thus been elected four times, and having served for a longer period, with four exceptions, than any man ever elected from that State. This great fact speaks, in un mistakable language, of the hold which he had upon the confidence and affections of his constit uents. Mr. Speaker, Owen Lovejoy was no common man. In saying that in his death a great man has fallen,! speak it iu no common orhackneyed reuse, for lie was great. He. was great in the leading idea of his life; great in his convictions; great in the elements of his character, great in his eloquence; great in his courage, and great iu liis abiding ana ever-living faith in the ultimate triumph of the eternal principles of right, jus tice, and humanity. So man who lias ijjucceeded in stamping his ideas and hie principles, as lie ha- with the im press of indelibility, upon the minds and hearts of men, could be an ordinary man. Early im presstsl with convictions in regard to the sub ject of American slavery be followed those con victions with unswerving fidelity, in the face of danger, obloquy, and repioach. His natural abhorrence of slavery was quickened by the tragic fate of a beloved brother, who fell a vic tim to his opposition to that institution, .and who illustrated his principles by his blood shed by n lawless mob. in the advancement of this great idea of his liie Mr. I.ovejoy toiled with an earnestness and teal which were "without varia bleness or shadow of turning,” and in the pur. suit of his great object it could truly hare been -aid of him— “So dangers daunted and nolabore tired." The heated denunciation of partisans, the ridi cule and clamor of tiie vulgar, and the threats of the cowardly aiv? Hie base, failed alike to turn him from that great purpose of his life, which like the "Pontic Sea know no retiring ebb." nnd which purpose lie pursued with unfaltering devotion to the last moment of his earthly ex istence. If he did not live to see the end of that stupendous struggle which was to establish the great problem which lie lead spent his life in working out, like Moses he saw the promised land, bright and beuutiful, as the last object up on which his expiring eyes fell. 1 cannot, Mr. Speaker, dwell at length upon t he striking incidents of the life of my late col league, nor shall the partiality of a longaml un interupted personal and political friendship lead 09 to trespass too long up on the time of the House. But serving with him for three full 1 Congresses in this House, ( should he recreant ; to my own sense of what is due to truth and justice, did I not hear my testimony to the dis tinguished ability and the great usefulness with which he served his constituents, his State and the country, as a Representative in the American Congress. As a legislator he was wise, intelligent, practical, vigilant, independent, and, above all, incorruptible. He was devoted to every duty, to his country and to his constituents. Wherever there was any principle involved, he was as firm and un yielding as the hills of his own native State.— i Yet, in all matters of mere policy, involving no | surrender of principle, there was no man more ready or more willing to yield to the suggestions of others. It is, perhaps, the case that, where ' men have been devoted to a particular idea, i they are generally impracticable in all other matters, but it was not so with our late associate. He was eminently a practical man, and a man of great common sense; a good judge of human nature, and familiar with the workings of the liunjan heart. I have spokeu of the deceased as a public man, but who shall s]>eak of the virtues which adorned his private life? Who shall speak of him as hus band, father, friend, neighbor, citizen? He was so genial in liis intercourse, of a sympathy so quick and ready, so kind, affectionate, and gen erous that there seemed combined in him all the qualities which challenged the love and admiration of those who best knew him, and which disarmed the resentment of enemies, aud .endeared him to the hearts of friends. Upon the immediate family of our late colleague has this blow fallen with crushiug force. No words of human sympathy or condolence can staunch the wouuds ot bleeding atfection, and it is alone to “Him who temj>er.- the wind to the shorn l imb" that the appeal must be made. Mr. Speaker, the proceedings of this House as published six years, will furnish a!T undying record of the services and labors of the distin guished man whose loss the country so deeply deplores. Serving during a part of the most interesting and turbulent periods of our Con gressional history, lie was one of the most ac tive participants in those scenes in the House which to the student of history, were the pre cursors of that terrible civil commotion which lias since drenched our laud in blood, and made the civilised world to stand aghast. I might call to your collection, Mr. Speak er, and to the recolleetion of those members of this House who were members of the Thirty Sixth Congress, that extraordinary scene in the House, of the 5th of April, 18(H), and which has scarcely a parallel in the history of any deliber ative assembly in the world. It was on that oc casion that he displayed that undaunted cour age and matchless bearing which extorted the admiration of even his most deadly foes. But [ need not recount to you, Sir, the many other occasions during your service when lie has elec trified the House by his outbursts of eloquence. With a mind well stored with classic learning, null a » uu-i viiu^iuvnv'i iiii'iviauijuiiii;, with a fine personal presence, he was one of the greatest orators, while yet be scorned the ordi nary artifices of eloquence. His was the elo quence of Mir&beau, which in the Tiers Etat and in the National Assembly made to totter the throne of France; it was the eloquence of Dan ton, who made all France to tremble from his tempestuous utterances in the National Conven tion. Like these apostles of the French revolution, his eloquence could stir from the lowest depths all the passions of man; but, unlike them, lie was as good uud as pure as he was eloquent and brave, a noble minded Christian man, a lover of the whole human race and of universal liberty regulated by law. While from this tibune lie spoke to the nation, and left |upott it the im press of his priiiciplqpiiil his convictions and of hie master mind, jTt the theatre of his great est triumphs as an orator was on the stump and before tlie masses of the people. It was in his own State, where he was known the best ami heard the oltenest, that he achieved his greatest distinction as an orator. In the presence of the people he was invincible. What ever might have been effected against him by political or poraooal prejudice, whenever he reached the popular ear all was scattered as if by a w hirlwind. Hut lie has left as in the pride of his manhood, and in the fulness of his intel lectual vigor—gone almost at the moment when he expected to see accomplished the great work to which he had devoted his life. He expressed that cx|>eotation in his great speech of April 5, MO, by a quotation from the speechof Mr. Wel> Iter on the subject of the threatened interposition (of Kussia to snatch Kossuth from the protec tion of Turkey for the purpose of sacrificing him on the altar of despotism, and I willclose with thnt quotation: “Gentlemen, there is something on earth greater than arbitrary or despotic [lower. The lightning lias its power, and the whirlwind has its [lower, and the earthquake has its power; hut there is something among men more capable of shaking despotic thrones than lightniug, whirl wind, or earthquake: and that is the excited ami aroused indignation of the whole civilized world.” 'The Avon to the Severn rune; The Severn to the era; An>l Wicklifle's duet shall spriad abroad Wide ai the waters be.” BAILEY AND NOYES, DEALERS IN PAPER HANGINGS, WE purchase our Stock of Room Taper from the largest Manufacturing Establishments in the United .States; careluliy selecting from their large stock*, the NEW patterns only,—and such m are adapted to thin market.
