THE DEATH OF GEN. HAMILTON, IN TEXAS.
When the news of the death of (en. Jame
Hamilton (says the Augusta Constitutionalist
was announced at Austin, the seat of Govert
ment in Texas, the Governor of that State con
munnicated the melancholy intelligence to th
Legislature then in session. Gov. E. M. Peas(
in his message, stated that "the deceased wn
one of the first who raised his voice in our b(
half at the commencement of our revolutionar
struggle, and his services and means were lavisl
ly given to our cause, both before and after h
became a citizen of the republic. His big
standing and influence in the world contribute
much to the successful issue of our revolution.
" Texas claimed himt as a citizen, and ranke
him as one of' her greatest beneflactors. Sh
mourns his untimely fate, and will evr cheris
his memory with veneration."
Resolutions of Col. Wigfall, adopted by th
Senate, on the occasion of the death of Get
Resolred, That this body has received wit
profound sensibility, the annunciation of th
death of Gen. James Hamilton, of South Car<
lina. His death is a calamity not only to th
nation and his own state, but also to the Stat
of Texas. He was the hold and powerful adv<
cate of Texas in ier dark and bloody struggi
with the almost imperial power of Mexie:
When the heroic spirits of 'G were treated wit
opprobrium, and as having forfeited all clain;
to the fraternal regards of' the people of t
United States, he then ini his place in the Senat
of South Carolina, with thoughts that breathe
and words that burned with living lire, repelle
the imputations on the purity and honor of ot
iotives-and inl the light of such eloquence an
truth gave such elevation to our controversy r
to challenge the admiration of the world-an
to change indifference into friendship and ei
thusiastm. For his services on that itemorab'
occasion he was offered by Texas the chief con
mand of her army. His genius, his pre-emiune
abilities, his high character and enthusiastie d,
votion to the interests of time country, illustrate
and adorned the various exalted civil trusts wit
which he was honored by the Republic. As om
Minister, he secured a treaty with Great Britaii
the most powerful natioit on the globe. He ab
negotiated a treaty with the Kingdom of ti
Netherlands, and rendered many other sign
services with high honor to himself and to t
benefit of the nation which lie represented. 13
special act of Congress lie was vested with tl:
rights of citizenship, and lie ranks very hig
among the eminent and illustrions of her citizen
Resolred, That this body will manifest its r
spel-t for the memory of the deceased, by wearin
the usual badge of mouirning, and that a copy
these proceetings be transmiitted to the fatnil
of the deceased.
