Dr. Gilman Davcii. Last Saturday noon a largo number of the physicians of this city assembled at the Port land Dispensary. Dr. Gilman was chosen chairman of the meeting, and Dr. Gerrish Sec retary. On taking the chair Dr. Gilman spoke as follows: You are already apprised, gentlemen, of the sad event inTeference to which we are brought together this morning—the sudden death of onr much respected associate and friend, Dr. Gil man Daveis. . , Although his health was somewhat and had been for a year or more, he was 1'blb attend to the duties of his profession, almost say, to the period of his deat . awoke early Wednesday morning w pain in thi right shoulder wmch^lym creased and soon extended,^ when vigited mg the entire side jn a short time after by b.spbysuna soiidification of the right ml was disemered. with indications of con gestion at the base of the left. His suffering Vwis intense, an l all the resources which his physicians could command failed to have the slightest effect in controllingor even mitigating the violence of the attack. The vital powers sank rapidly, and he expired in aa unconscious stab? at 1 o’clock Friday morning, after a brief but agonizing sickness of forty-eight hours. I knew Dr. Daveis intimately many year3. L knew him in his boyhood and in the full" strength of manhood and maturity of all his powers, aud cau bear willing but inadequate testimony to his large and varied intellectual endowments, to his distinguished learning in all the depart nents of our profession, particularly in the one lie made a specialty, and to which he devoted himself with untiring zeal and industry to the very close of life.to the high sense of honor which ever regulated liis intercourse and acts with his professional associates, and to the scrupulous fidelity and entire devotedness with which he discharged his duties to all who sought and re ceived the benefit of his professional care. You doubtless anticipate the object of this meeting, aud will agree with me that it is a fit ting although melancholy duty to tender to the stricken family of our deceased brother the as surance of our heartfelt sympathy, and to pre pare appropriate resolutions expressing our ap preciation of his eminent professional worth, of his many manly virtues and Christian graces of character, and our deep sense of the great loss which tbo profession and the community have sustained in his lamented death. Dr. Wood made the following remarks: Mr. Chairman: I hardly dare give utterance eveu to a few words in relation to the sad be reavement that lias fallen upon our profession in tho death of Dr. Gilman Daveis, for 1 have the, conviction that even if I did more I should still fail to do justice to my own feelings, and especially to the subject of my remarks. This bereavement naturally falls upon us all with more or less varied effect, in proportion to our knowledge of and intimacy with our depart ed associate. To me, it comes with peculiar force, for my acquaintance with him, early rip ening into friendship and love, extends over nearly the whole of my professional life, during which no event has occurred to mar for a mo ment the harmony of our intercourse with each other. This friendship of his, though perhaps sparingly bestowed, was a treasure to be valu ed, for it was true as steel, with the ring of the pure metal, and was ever reliable in any and every emergency. One of the salient points in his character, and that perhaps by which he is best known to the profession generally in this city and State, was bis ardent love of the study jf medicine and surgery as a science. Surroundin'; himself with all the appliances necessary for their prac tice, and with the choicest works in their liter ture, he busied himself in storing their richest treasures which his retentive memory enabled him to bring forth as the occasion required. Another of the salient paints in his charac ter, and that perhaps to which wc are compelled at last to look as one having an immediate bear ing among tbe predisposing causes of his death, was his devotion to his patient where the con dition was critical. Tbe last fortnight of his life was devoted to just such a case, and though in feeble health, he would not sparo himself but at all hours of every day and night he ad ministered to the relief of this suffering patient, though at the expense of a vast amount of the vital force necessary to protect him from the invasion of a disease which might he violent just in proportion to the loss of this vital force. In this exhausted condition he called upon me, requesting my presence in an operation that ■ he wished to perform upon the eye, the next day, Wednesday, at 11 o’clock. On the morn ing of that day he sent word to me that not be ing well lie should postpone the operation, and requested me to call upon.him in the course of the day. This was followed an hour afterwards by a more urgeut request that I would come at once to his relief. You, Mr. Chairmau, have already told the story of his brief but violent and distressing sickness. I will only say in ad dition that I can never forget the extraordinary change wrought in his appearance by tho dis ease of only a few hours duration. Half stand ing, half sitting at the head of his bed, his fea tures pinched, bis countenance livid, tbe sur face of the body cold, he begged for relief from the great distress that occupied the right chest. Upon examination I found tho expectoration bloody, the whole right lung and a portion of the lower lobe of the left silgnt, the upper portion filled by a puerile respiration, but without a rale of any description upon cither side, the spaces where the respiratory murmur was absent being entirely fiat to percussion. Mr. Chairman, in accordance with your sug gestion and with my own feelings, I would move that a committee of three be appointed by the chair to draft resolutions expressive of tbe feel ings and sentiments of the physicians of this city in relation to the death of Dr. Gilman Da veis, and of our heartfelt sympathy with the family of the deceased. Dr. Wood was succeeded by Dr. Chadwick, who said: Mr. Chairman—We have been called upon within the last decade to chronicle the depart ure from earth of one after another of those with whom we have been associated in our pro fessional life. One by one, and at short inter vals, are we summoned to offer our tribute of respect and see them borne away to their last resting place, and now the summons has come agiin, calling us together to pay the tribute of affection and respect to one who has been among us for more than a quarter of a century, having filled to the uttermost the duties, the labors and the anxieties of the good physician. While this may not be tho occasion lor any eulogium upon our departed friend, still I de sire that these few words may find a place in the action of the profession at this gathering where we have met to express our appreciation of his wor th, and of our great loss. My rela tions with Dr. Daveis were perhaps more inti mate, if I may except two gentlemen of the profession, than possibly any other physician in the city. I entered upon the study of medicine in the office of Dr. Daveis, and have been upon tbe kindest and most agreeable terms with him ever since that period. During the last few years we have not met so frequently as in earl ier times, but always has the Doctor manifest ed for me the kindest feeling and interest, and I should be doing a great injustice to my own feelings did I not say that my recollections of our acquaintance and intimacy will form one of the brightest spots in my memory. Tho zeal with which Dr. Daveis entered upon the responsibility of each and every case in trusted to his care, was very apparent, and it has often struck me with surprise to note his utter forgetfulness of self when there was any obscurity in the patients condition. There seemed to be, as it were, a drawing in upon himself from tho patieut, almost the patient’s condition. _ He could not forget his case, and this, I believe, was the prime cause of his sud den death. It will be pleasant to remember him, and may we bear away with us the recollections of his excellence as a physician, and tbe genial worth of his social qualities. Drs. Wood, Dana and T. A. Foster were ap pointed a committee on resolutions. The meeting adjourned until Monday noon, at which time the committee presented tho fol lowing report, which was accepted and the resolutions were unanimously adopted, It having pleased an all-wise Providence to remove suudenly from our raid3t our lamented associate and friend, Dr. Gilman Daveis, there fore Resolved, That in the death of Dr. Daveis we de plore the loss of one who, by his ripe experience,large, varied and accurate learning, his skill in every de partment of medicine and surgery, but especially in that which he had adopted as a specialty, had won a distinguished appreciation, not only by the profes sion of this city, but over a widely extended field, both at home and abroad. Resolved, That his loyalty to his profession, liii self-reliance, his manly independence and especially his untiring and unceasing devotion to the cause of his patients iu every critical period of their distress will make his loss one to be shared in and regretted by the whole community, and especially lamented by all to whom he had administered iu the hour of their peril. Resolved, That we cannot better express our ap preciation of the true character of our departed friend and brother than by the adoption of his own lauguage as indicative of “the spirit that must actu ate-every true physician.” “Happy indeed is tbo man whose mind, whose moral nature and whose spiritual being are all har moniously engaged in the daily business of his life; with whom the same act has become bis own happi ness, a dispensation of mercy to his fellow creatures an«l a worship of God.” Resolved, That a copy of the30 resolutions be sent to the family of the deceased with the expression of mctiouartfclt BymPatljyin tliis hour of their deep af r>iibl/cattdVn m copy of the33 resolutions b° sent for publication to the daily papers of this city. lMPBOVEMENT.-On the south side of Com mercial s reel, at the corner of Custom House wharf, a largo throe storied wooden warehouse is to be immediately erected, it will be 30 feet on Commercial street and 100 feet deei>, with a cellar under the whole building, it jj be a handsome structure of modern style, built as strong as timber can make it, with a brick wall in the rear to prevent danger from fire in that direction.

The casket, covered with flowers, was next brought into the chamber by the colored ser vants of the Supreme Court and placed upon the catafalque, in the area fronting the Secre ■ tary’s desk, which was strewn with floral wreaths, crosses, anchors, etc., a large cross from New York being placed on the Vice Pres idents desk. Next entered President Grant and Cabinet, accompanied by the ladies of their respective households and the immediate relatives of the deceased, followed by colored servants, male and female, all in deep mourning. The minister concluded his reading by tbe time tbe assembly was seated. Rev. Mr. Cleveland real a passage from tho scriptures, when the Rev. Mr. Brown offered prayer. Mr. Tiffany, in the course of his sermon,read an extract from a letter written by Mr. Chase on the subject of the Presidency, in which he said lie did not desire the Presidency or a nom ination, nor did he know with liis views and convictions whether he was a suitablo candi date, and yet, the minister remarked, an im pression prevailed that Mr. Chase was a disap pointed politician. It was undeniable that no man saw in liis acts indications of querulous ness and bitterness, hut their opposite.— He was kind to all, a pure patriot, an upright judge and a Christian gen tlemen. It would he found that his blameloss private life was rendered more conspicuous by his eminent official position. No acts of liis life need concealment. His character was without a blemish. Scandalous attacks had been made on public men and perhaps many of them were innocent, but none have attempt ed to tarnish the mirror of the reputation of the deceased, and his namo goes down to posterity without reproach. Courteous in hearing lie superadded a Christian conservatism. He was great among men, but as a child before his Father in Heaven. The minister concluded with prayer, when it was announced that further services would be

performed at the cemetery. Under direction of the Marshal the proces sion was reformed and moved to Oak Hill Cetn etery where the remains will be temporarily interred. There were about 80 carriages in the pvocessiou, mostly private. The President, and the Cabinet, and Foreign Ministers occupying their own. Thousands of persons were on the streets as spectators. The day was clear. There was a toiling of hells preceding and after the funeral services. After the last sad rights in the chapel, the casket was lowered iuto one of the temporary vaults beneath the floor where it will remain till to morrow. It will then he taken out and having in the meantime been enclosed in the case, will be interred in the lot of Gov. Cooke, in a new part of the cemetery. The President and JLonisinna. Much having recently been said concerning the present and prospective action of the Pres ident in the troubles of Louisiana, it may be stated that the President has received no tele gram from Gov. Kellogg since last Friday, when the condition of affairs were represented as somewhat improved. While there is no doubt tdat the President would intervene to protect the State from domestic violence should the Governor make application to him for tho pur pose, and provided tho facts warant such pro ceedings, it is nevertheless the hope of the President, as he expressed himself to a friend to-uight, that all disturbances would soon cease, and that no such contingency as that contemplated by the Constitution would occur; hut if it uulortunately should, he would take care to act clearly within the limits of the con stitution and the laws. Heretofore be had merely sustained the decisions of the courts. a ooon Apiiominicnl. TUo appointment of Minister to Russia lias been tendered to Judge Pierrepont of New York. His acceptauee lias not yet been signi tied. It is uncertain when a successor to De long as Minister to Japan will be indicated. Libel Suit ngninst Whilelaw Reid. Gen. B. F. Butler and Messrs. Hinkle and Arrick to-day entered a suit for Beuj. F. Camp against Whitelaw Reid for libel. An alleged lilicllious article in the N. Y.
