And although in Ihe later years of his life he
was not a dn-e stinlei't, no man ever grappled
with him in forensic coiuhit who did not find
him well learned in the doctrines of thee.isc

hada veryixact ceniiirehrnsion of the nature

ing and of character, prepared ami preparing to
assume the duties winch time will soon devolve
upon them. In this circle I find myself grow
ing towards the seniority. It seems a very
short li.uo since I ivas the' junior, and yet there
are but two members of the liar who outrank
me in date- of admission. I tru-t it may be long
before their place shall be vacant.
Gentlemen, many years ago Mr. Clark and I
were walking together before the Court House,
and discussing an event such a ha now again
happened. And then nnd there wo made n mu
tual pledge, that in the event of the death of ei
ther, Ihe survivor should pronounce an address
of condi lenco and respect for tho departed. I
have now fulfilled that promise.
