Mr Irwin rose, laboring under the deep*

the only opinion was, he never looked nor

It is no light matter to tear oneself from

him who is thus about to separate from

ance to the emotions which crowd upon
me at this moment.

which he has too highly estimated. IA ith.
out, gentlemen, presuming to offer a word
of argument, or of discussion, in connec
tion w ith any political topic, which may.
even in the slightest degree, wound the
feelings of any one, it is perhaps due to
the occasion that I should, briefly a; may
be, disclose to you, the course of policy and
principles by which I was governed, while
in Congress. Gentlemen, it was with no
light heart, or bold confidence, I took my
seat in the Hall of Representatives, at the
opening of the 27th Congress. I saw he
fore me,and around mean array of infellec,
teal force and power, such as is seldom
witnessed on any theatre, even in this en
lightened country. There were veteran
statesmen, experienced part amentary tac .
ticians, brilliant orators, adroit politicians,
and tea who had appeared for the firs'
time, on that arena, but who were burning
with an ardent ambition for honorable fame.
I had succeeded men, your former repre
sentatives, who had left behind them repu
tation for services and ability, such as it
would have been presumptuous in the to
have hord to attain.
It would have been imekessible for any
man of ordinary reflection not to have for
seen that all the great questions of national
policy,—all the great measures of federal
administration, not excepting the fearful
issues of peace or war, which had agi'ated,
divided and convulsed the American people
for the last twenty five years,woula be mar
shelled for the consideration, discussion
and action of that 27th Congress. It was
quite as easy to see that, daily, nay hourly,
questions of vital importance to the inter,
eats of the whole country, might be sud
denly sprung upon the inexperienced rep
resentative. You,rny constituents, were not
at my elbow to counsel and advise me in
my votes. I was not long, gentlemen, in
deciding upon the course which I silt uld
pursue. It may have been a perilous on e ,
but it was simple and straight forward.

In the n ‘itt place,' thought it prudent & I

meet with the general and cordial acquies
