was so eloquently prefaced meet with

Horace Greeley the distinguished
American, to whoso deith the motion
relates, died after a brief illnes, at
Tarrytown, New York, on the night
of the 29th ultimo. His career fur.
nishes an impressive example of the
benefloient nature of our free institu.
tions, which accord to all men, how
ever humble, their ot igi, an equil
chance in the race of life. He6
sprang from the loins of the
people. Born sixty one years
ago of parents who IVelonged to the
hardy and independent yeomanry
of New Hampshire, his early life was
passed in poverty among the hard
handed tillers of the soil. le gradu
ated in a country common school, an
institution which is the onduring bul
wark of the State, and to which New
England owes much of her great and
deserved renown as the leader of
American civilization. le entered
upon his manhood as a printer, and
after yoars of arduous effort he arose
to eminence as a jurnalista among
a people whose intellectual standard
of journulism, was of the very highest.
For many yearp, and up to the po
riod when lie died in the full ripeness
of his intellect, lie was the recogniz
ed leader of the American press.
That was no common distinction.
The press in our day is a great mental
force, which guides and controls the
public opinion which it only seems to
reflect. as the cord berds the bow,
which it seems only to obey. Indeed
the influeneo of the newspaper press
upon events, niid upon the progress of
society, may be compared to that ex
erted by the great laws of attraction
and gravitation upon our planeta
ry system, silently restraining, while
irresistibly impelling each orb in its
The great editor of the New York
Tribune knew that influence, and
wielded it with matchless power and
skill. Sir Edward Coke has well
said, that "sparks of all science may
be gathered up in the ashes of the
law." This is especially the case
with lthe profession of the editor. ie
ithe true Encyclopaldist.
Editoritlly, Mr. Greeley was the
most elegant write~r and formidable
debater of his time. Whenever occa
sion required, the most extraordinary
array of facts and figures followed the
march of his splendid diet.ion, just as

and supply trains, of a great army

the mind of the scholar, the fabled
