Colfax's Farewell to the House.
Wasbington, March 3.-Mr. Colfax, when
he resigned the Speakership, said : "A part
ing word amongst friends about to separate
is always a regretful one, but the farewell
which takes me from this Hall, in which so
many years have been spent, excites in me
emotions which it would be useless to attempt
to conceal. The fourteen years during which
I have been associated with the representa
tivre of the people here, have been full of
eventful legislation, exciting issues, grave
questions, and decisions vitally affecting the
I entire Republie. All this, with the accom
panying scenes which have so often been pro
p duced in this arena of debate, the warmth of
feeling ot our antagonizing constituents have
paaied into the domain of history. I but re
fer to them to express the joy which is ap
parently shared by the mass of our country
men that the storm-cloud of war, which so
long darkened our national welfare, has
passed away, leaving our imperriled Union
saved, anid that by voice of the people liberty
was proclaimed throughout the land to all
the inhabitants thereof. But I cannot leave
without one word of rejoicing over the pres
ent position of our Republic amongst the
nations of the earth. With our military
power, almost unlimited resources, rapidly
augmenting population, and the welcome at
our gates to the oppressed of other lands; our
vast agricultural, mechanical, manufacturing
and mineral capacities; our frontage on two
great oceans; our almost completed Pacific
railroad uniting those opposite shores and be
coming the highway of the Nations, the Uni
ted States commands that respect among the
powers of the wor!d which insures the main
tenance of all its national rights, and the
security of all its citizens from injustice or
oppression abroad. Nor is this all. The tri
umphal progress of free institutions here has
had its potential influence beyond the sea.
The right of the people to govern, based on
the principle that all governments derive
their just powers from the consent of the
governed, is everywhere advancing, not with
slow measured tread, but with a rapidity that
within a few years has been so signally illus
trated in Britain, Spain, Italy, Prussia, Hun
gary, and other lands; and may we not all
hope that by the moral but powerful force of
our example the fetters may everywhere be
broken, and some of us live to see the happy
era when slavery and tyranny shall no more
be known in the world from the rivers to the
ends of the earth.
I cannot claim, in the share I have had in
the deliberation and legislation of this House
as a member and oSeer, to have always been
that which was the wisest and best in word and
act, for none are intallible, but I have
striven to perform faithfully every duty that
devolved, and have been devoted to the
principles I have deemed correct. The honor
and glory of our own country have always
been paramount and above party ties. I can
conscientsously aert that*I have sought to
mitigate rather than intensify the asperities
which the collisions of opposing parties so
often evoke, but it must be left to my fellow
members to verify. In the respon
sible duties of the past six years
I have endeavored to administer your
laws, both in letter and spirit, with impar
tiality, uninfluenced by political associations
or antagonism, expression or qualilcation,
and while no decision has been reversed,
there has been no appeal ever decided by a
strictly party vote. If in the quickness, with
which a presiding oAcer is compelled to rule,
hour afLtr hour, on parliamentary points, and
in the performance of his duty protect all
members in their rights, advance the progress
of public business and preserve order, any
word has fallen from my lips that justly
wounded any one, I withdraw it unrrerved
ly. I leave this Hall with no feelings of un
kindness towards any member with whom I
have been associated in all the years of the
past, hoping earnestly it is reciprocated. I
have ted to practice that lesson of life
which command us s "write our enmities on
the smad but engrave our friendships on grana
ite." But the last word cannot longer be
delayed. I bid farewell to the faithful and
confding constituency whose afectionate re
gard has sustained and encompassed me
through all the years of my public life.
Farewell this Hall, which, in its exoitemeat
and restless activity so often seems to repre
sent the throbbings sad intense feelingL of
the national hear. and finally. fellow mem
bers and friends with sincere gratitude for the
generous support you have always given me
in the diacult and often complex duties of this
Chair, with warmest wishes for yorer health.
happiness, and prosperty, one and all I bid
you farewell." (Great applause.)
