IRE LATE ROBERT MURE.
Memorial fleeting or the Cim.mbcr of
Commerce, g TS .
r There was a very lull meeting of the Cham
, ber of Commerce yesterday to testify the sorrow '
j of the members at the decease.or their-late presi?
dent, Robe : -,-?Hare, and Io give formal utterance
to the senti ment 3 of high esteem lu .which he was
! held as a merchant, a citizen and a man. The
meeting waa called to order by President Tupper,
who said :
REMARKS OF PRESIDENT S. Y. TUPPER.
Gentlemen cf the 6VW rube/--The occasion is a
mournful one which^?iing3 us together; and
painful is fie duty which devolves upon m.-; offi?
cially to bring to yonr notice the death, of our late
president; . .
An uprlijht.. man, a useful citizen and an hon
orafele-memhanrtiaj been gathered to his fathers,
fad, mdee-i. to ns ls the reflection that no more
within these Jialls shall we behold the manly
form of Rooert Mure. No more along the marts
or commerce shall we-exchange those friendly
greetings with one whose familiar face we have
almost dally encountered r<>r the past third of a
century, lie who movea with, as in the- stirring
business of life, whose-frlendsblp we enjoyed, and
with whom we loved to hold Intercourse, ls no
longer of chis earth-nor shall lils places any
more behold him.
Vain, but too familiar, are the utterances nf
sorrow from the human heart when "all earthly
.Uraga are ant the pageants of an hoar," and all in
their turo tro down to one mighty sepulchre. Yet
wh6n a man pre-eminently good, and 'whose vir?
tues far outweighed any imperfections of his na?
ture, whoue struggles through adversity and
triumphs over all obstacles proclaim bl9 native
strength, ol Intellect and energy-when, as men
and merchants, We lose an .associate whose sin?
cerity of character, commercial enterprise ' and
high Integrity of .parp?se are so - proverbially
known and recognized as was Mr. Mare's, surely.
lt becomes us to place on record some tribute to
his worth-some m unrest a: lon df pwr-ifcrrow.
From nj? personal knowledge and acquaintance
wp,h the'dtrceaseoT, extending through a period or
thirty year3,1 had formed the highest estimate
of h? trutr. fulness aad regard for morai right.
And this regard for truth, which, neither' .circum?
stance, expediency or temptation could ever in?
duce him to compromise, was, in my opluton, the
prominent and most admirable feature of his
character. ? ".* ? . - > * J
.-His. too, was a generous nature. Bis near*was
ever prompt in acknowledging Its highest obliga- I
tions, and he faithfully discharged to the extent
of hls-abllttv the offices of kindness afid benevo-1
tance. He sought for happiness in the pursuits
and fitirebteht of private Hfe, rather than In the
ambitious jaths of public notoriety-not that he -I
shunned tie duties that af rimes devolved upon I
him as a citizen, for none was more ready to
make the sacrifices and Incur th? responsibilities I
of public service than hlmseir, at the call of pa
trio tis m.
But he In dead, and he died as he lived, in the
humbU, faith of a Christ ilu-a faith which seemed I
to g lye a degree of tranquillity and contentment
to hu lire? and which kept him steadfast to those
.principles of truth and virtue which character?
Tgo not propose to trespass farther upon the
Chamber cr the privileges of those who are to rol?
lo? me tn eulogy or our late president. I ot: ly de
sire to say, in conclusion, that having referred to
those social and business qualities which charac?
terised Mr. Mure, there is one occurreuce of his
Ute which shou d not be forgotten, and which -ap?
peals t<> th; sensibilities of every Southern heart.
I refer'to rte imprisonment and sufferings for that
devotion 1:0 onr Southern cause which was al?
ways prominent In his sympathies and undisguis?
ed in his actions. *
The civil ian and merchant among ns en conn- t
tared th? perils of that cause with the soldier and f
the statesman, and both suffered alike from Us I
losses and dises'ers. * \* > *. |
Thus having faithfully discharged the varied
dat les of life, our mend has lett behind him an ex
ample wm ?iv of emulation. ? ? f
Tne Chamber is now prepared to receive amy
remarks aid propositions from members relating
to the solemn event which has brought us to

Mr. Mure was lu every sense a model merchant, I

verbal promise was as readily relied apon as any,

in his pro ession, and though lils experience has
been that or most others, having its lights and Us
shadows, its trials and Us rewards, still through
.them all he has upheld the character of the
Charleston merchants for honor and Integrity,
and preserved untarnished, by deed or word of
Us, their reputation for uprightness. .
' Recognising these traita of his character, and
feeling us; ured he would prove a worthy succ?s- I

also itat Hie interests of the Chamber would be
advanced by his assuming the duties of the prest- I

In nearing oar testimony to his character as a
merchant, a gentleman and a Christian, we feel I
it to be % mournful privilege to indulge in the

Perhaps lt would not be out of place to trace, In
a few words, the history of him whom we have

REMAKES OF MR W. J. MIDDLETON.
Mr. President-Bankrupt though I.be In speech,
and with feelings welting up as they would choke
my utterance, I may hot permit my beggary of
words, porthe depth of my emotions, to deter me
'from raising" my voice in support of the resolu?
tions, aud laying my tribute of pale flowers upon
the bier of our departed friend. This heart would
indeed be callous to the promptings of gratitude
.did it not, on this solemn occasion, publicly tes
tlry to thfe debt of love I owe to that good man
whoTias been called away.
To?me he was emphatically counsellor, benefac?
tor and friend. A close and intimate association
of neaYly twenty-two years enables me to speak
advisedly of those bright and sterling* qualities
which so pce-emluently distinguished him. It was
.In January, twenty-one years ago, I entered his of?
fice, a boy of sixteen years, bis kindness aud parti?
ality giving me the preference over a score of other
candidates; and in that long career we have seen
many vicissitudes af fortune-mnch of sunshine
and much of shadow; "skies now dark aud now
serene;" now a season of prosperity and success,
and anon troiibl?s like an avalanche sweeping
athwart our pathway and threatening to over?
whelm; but arhid all the changing scenes he ever
preserved'the calm and dig citied demeanor of the
uprlghfcmerchanc and Christian gentleman.
A stem and Inflexible Integrity and a delicate
'sense of honor ever marked his dealings with his
fellows, and lice Bayard, he was without rear and
wtthouc reproach. HU heart was big with nuble
impulses, and the appeal or the needy ever met a
iea?y and* generous response. His. platy was
.deep-and sincere, for ln'.olils Saviour's, keeping
he had committed his soul's eternal Interests, Tn
full assurance that He was able to keep that.he
had committed unto Him against, that day.
He has pi lend to-his reward; he has gone.down

?tr. Chairman-ll ls a matter or regret that the
first word I should .ba called to speak In this
Chamber 19 one of sorrow for a deceased friend,
?nt lt ts not without satisfaction that that word
ls one or testimony to lils high character and man?
ifold virtues as a man and citizen. Well may you
.say, ?ir, thsUhls ls asad occasion, when the very
head of your association ls stricken down in
death.; There ls in every community a class of
muii the death of any one of whom cannot fall to
occasion a sensible void, and lt ls a sad tiring to
see how many, within the last few years, or .those
upon whom we have been accustomed to, w
and to whom we have looked up with-pride and
confidence ai our . patterns and guides,
have fallen at our sides, and left us to
moam their loss, lt seems - to me that
our city, since the close of the la'e war, has been
oreatli bereaved lu this way. Apart from the ad?
vance of xe?rs, the strain "OT untoward events
and the pressure of breken hope?-and mortified
sensibilities have proved too much for the forti?
tude of mauy a noble spirit; and as one after an
.other bes dropped by the way and gone to his
long rest, we have felt as if a prop upon which we
have beeu accustomed to lean has rallen from
utldar oe-as If pillar after pillar ls being removed
from our social edifice, till the melancholy fore?
boding ls pressed upon us that the very edifice It?
self may be crumbling and falling to ruin.? The
anxious, absorbing thought ls, will the men that
are to came after us be after the manuer and
fashion of those in the light <T whose example we
have been privileged to walk ?
Such a feellug aud such a train of thought ls
suggested by the death of our departed friend,
rtohert Mure. He was a man of whom-any com .
muBlty might be proud. His death would be, In
any community, a public . loss. A native o? Scot
laud, he brouglu with him to his adopted'home
the proverbial virtues 01 his nativo land. Justice,
iutegrltv, ratr and honorable dealing were the
emanations of lils uature, and the proper fruits
of his training. Among houornble merchants
and there are none more honorable than those
bred lu this community'--he waa accounted
worthy to stand at. the head or. the oldest suer
oap tu.. association in the city, and to be toe rep?
resentative mdn df a Uodv of business men with
whom honor and fair dealing are traditional.
Aud he loved the people with whom he had cast
his lot; with all earuestness aud euterprlie, he
sodght to advance their interest; and he <?'-. suf?
fered in their cause that he never recoveied fr*ra
