E?lOgy on Robert EL Lee, Delivered In

the Her. Dr. B. m. Palmer.
- MR. PRESIDENT, GENTLEMEN AND LA?
DIES: I should have been better pleased
had I hoon .permitted to sit as n mere
listener to the eloquent tribute of praise
to .the memory of the great chieftain
who now reposes in the Valley of Death,
whioh has just fallen from the lips that
have closed. The nature of my calling
ao far separates me from public life, that
I scaroely feel competent to allude to the
themes whioh naturally gather around his
memory? When informed that other
artists would draw the-?>icture of the
great boro, I yielded to trio solicitations
of friond?, ja the belief that nothing
would bo left lor me to-night but to de?
scribe the Christian and the man.
"Tba are naturally familiar with the
carly lifo of him whose name wo cele?
brate, and over whose memory we this
night shed oar tears; with his grave and
sedate boyhood, giving promise of that
reserved strength found in the maturity
of bia manhood; with his academia ca?
rear afc Weat Poiut, .where he received
the highest honora iu a olaBs brilliant
with, such names as that of Joseph 12.
Johnston; how he served his long ap
Srontiooabip in those duties which he
isoharged as a graduate of that institu?
tion; with his career during the Mexican
war* which drew him out from compara?
tive - obscurity: and you nm familiar,
without repetition, with that great mor?
tal and spiritual struggle through which
he passed in one night of grief and an?
guish; when, abandoning the service in
which he had gained so much honor, he
laid his sword on the altar of bis native
State, and Bwore to live or die in ber de
It would be a somewhat singular sub?
ject of Speculation for the philosopher if
we were to disoovor that national charac?
ter is so often expressed in a single indi?
vidual as the representative of the alosa.
It ia a'wonderful and remarkable field
for speculation how great men are born
in c?uatere sometimes, and as ono star
shines in solitary strength from the ge?
neral gathering of a great constellation,
filling the sky with the glory which is in
that combination, so it is a wonder?
ful field for the speoulatiou of the prac?
tical, physical, intellectual and moral
philosopher, what should make a nar?
row strip of land, here and there, all
over the world, the mother of great men.
This subject may well invite the atten?
tion of the most philosophic mind to
solve the problem how ancient Greece,
with ita indented ooast, inviting to ad?
venture, should have been the mother of
boroea; how her poets, soolptors, artists,
and her science, still; after the lapse of
centuries, should have been the educa?
tors of mankind, leaving grand and glo?
rious monuments, snob, as modern civili?
zation, with all its boasted reforms, has
never been surpassed or scarcely equal?
ed; to investigate the cause, why, iu the
330 years of American history, it should
have been assigned to the Old Dominion
does not reoognie? a select rac?, and se
IeCt individuals of that raco, to make
?them. Bat preterrriitting al! speculation
of that sort, when Virginia rjrifolds the
scroll of ber immortal sons-not because
other illustrious names do not appear iu
the constellation, but because theirs
shine out from among them-we read
tho name of George Washington; and
then, Mr. President, after an interval of
three-fourths of a century, daring which
other deeds are recorded, and names are
traced that history will never let die, wo
come to the name-the only name in all
the anuajs of American history that can
be named in this perilous connection
that of Robert E. .Lee, the seoond Wash?
ington. [Applause.] Well may old
Virginia be proud of her twin sous, al?
most a century apart, shining like those
stars which, combining their glory,
throw their splendor over tho world.
Sir, this is not artificial rhetoric which
Ruggebts thia comparison; because these
two great names of American history
are naturally linked together, the sug?
gestion springs to the lips of every man.
It is scarcely possible to disonss the
traits of one, without dropping a hint
of the mysterious connection which
binds the two together. They were
alike in the early history of their boy?
hood, both earnest, grave and sedate.
They were alike in that peculiar purity
which belongs Only to a noble boy giving
promise of a life, spotless, if not great,
until it doses in death. They were
alike in that commanding presence
which seems the signature which Heaven
Sometimes places on the puro sonl, when
to that soul is given a fit dwelling; alike
in that noble ooarage and commanding
dignity whioh needs only to be witnessed
to exercise a mesmeric influence, and
wbioh subdues and melts with a power
that cannot be repressed. They were
alike in the remarkable combination and
Bymnietry of their intellectual attri?
butes, all brought up to the samo equal
level; no faculty of the mind overlapped
any other; but all wero so equally, so
well developed in judgment and reason,
in memory, in fancy, that you are al?
most disposed to deny him greatness,
because no single attribute of the mind
was projected on an independent Beale,
just as objects sometimes appear smaller
to the eye, because of their perfect sym?
metry. They were alike above all in
that grand, that Christian virtue, which
was the climax of the character in both,
as told you so beautifully in the tribute j
which has been rendered to bis memory
by my friend, whose high privilege it
was to be the compeer of Lee, although
engaged in another sphere of public
service. They were alike in their ances?
tral fortune, and yet so strikingly dis?
similar. The one the representative of
a stupendous revolution, which it pleased
Heaven to bless, and which gave birth
to one of tho greatest nations of the
globe, to which was assigned a continent
for a homo. The other the representa?
tive and agent of a similar revolution,
upon which it pleased high Heaven to
throw the darkness of its frown, 6o that
by carrying upon his heart tho weight of
this crush, he was at length stifled by it.
And the nation whom he led in battle
gathers with spontaniety of grief all
over this land, strewn with graves and
reddened with blood, and the tenrs ol' a
widowed nation, in their bereavement,
are shed over his honored grave. But,
sir, these rude suggestions, which full
almost impromptu, suggest what I do
sire to throw before the audience to?
I accept Robert E. Leo as the true type
of the American man and Southern gen?
tleman. A brilliant English writer has
well remarked, with a touch of philoso?
phy, that when a nation is rushing to de?
struction, the whole force of the nation
will shoot np in one grand character, like
the aloe, which blooms and stands for a
hundred years, then shoots up in one
single sprout; and wherever civilizatiou
bas worked r?volution?, it is possible to
place the finger on individual men who
are the exponents of the nation's cha?
racter, after whioh others, though less
noble perhaps, have, nevertheless, been
fashioned. That gentleness and courtesy,
that perfect moderation, that self-com?
mand which enabled him to bo so self
possessed amidst tho most trying cir?
cumstances in bis career, clothed him
with tho stainless attribute of a gentle?
man, and a character such as that of the
purest woman was uuited in him with
that massive strength, endurance nnd
power which gave to the people whom
he led such momentous strength in the
long struggle through which be pasfed.
Born from tho general lovel of Ameri?
cans, the blood of noble ancestry flowed
in his veins, and be was the type of tho
raoe from which he sprung. But thus
democratic in bis birth, such was thu
gentleness and simple majesty of his
character that bis only peer in social
life, perhaps, can bo found in the courts,
and among those who have been edu?
cated amidst the refinement of courts.
In that regard, there was something
beautiful and appropriate in the idea
that he should becoino in later life the
educator of the young; and, sir, it is a
cause of mourning before Heaven that
be was not spared thirty years to edu?
cate a generation for the time that is to
come for this widowed South; that in
the days when the red banner of battle
shall be unfurled again, her sons might
fight ander his banner, or send forth
those sons to sit at his feet as disciples
of the Muses, and he a teacher of phi?
losophy; BO that, with his imperial in?
fluence, his more than regal character,
his majestic form, and all his intellectual
and moral attributes, he might flt those
that should como in future, modeled
after himself, to take tho trusts fallen
from his shoulders, and bear them to
generations unborn. But, sir, General
is tbe ^ of'lh^
to 1865. They wrong tis, mr, who Bay
that it was this Southern land that
brought on the revolution of 1776, and
thai the South desired the revolution of
1861. And wo are the heirs of all the
glory of that immortal struggle; it was
purchased with our blood, or the blood
of our fathers, which yet flows in these
veins, aud which we desire to transmit
pure to the sons that are born of our
loins. All the traditions of the past
sixty years was a portion of our inherits
ance, and it never was easy for any great
heart or reflecting mind even to seem to
part with that inheritance, and enter
upon tho perilous undertaking of esta?
blishing a new nation.
Mr. President, it was my privilege
once to be present and listen to a speech
by one of the noblest sous of South Ca?
rolina, whose name glitters among the
galaxy of her great names-for South
Carolina was Virginia's sister, and South?
ern, and stood by the South in all her
struggles. That little State, small in
compass, barren in resources,' but great
only in the grandeur of her men and the
gigantic proportions of those whom she,
Hke Virginia, hos produoed. I heard one
of South Carolina's noblest sons speak
on one occasion: "I walked," said he,
"through the tower of London-that
groat depository where is gathered all
that to English hearts is precious-and
when the guide, in the pride of his Eng?
lish heart, pointed to the spoils of war,
gathered through centuries, I turned
and said, 'You cannot point to one single
trophy from my people, or my country,
though England has been engaged in
two disastrous wars with it.' "
Sir, this was tho Southern heart thal
loved every inch of American soil and
every part of that canvas which, as the
emblem of ber authority, floated from
spire aud mast-head. Aud it was onlv
after the anguish of a woman in birt!
that this land, which now lies in sorrow
and ruin, took upon itself that great pe
ril, and embarked in the revolution
with tho experience of him whoso praisi
is ou our lips to-night.
Liko the English Nelson, he only re
cognized tho word duty-"let every mai
do his doty"-as tho only ensign o:
motto. Tearing himself away from al
tho associations of early lifo, and abau
doning tho servico in which ho hal
gained such honor, he made up his mini
to embark in the cause, and, with mode
ratiou and firmness, expressed his will
ingness to live for his native State, an<
do all aud auy duty assigned to him.
accept him iu his noble teaching equally
as the representative of the South in hi
retirement. It cannot escape any Bpeak
er, the dignity of that retirement, when
beneath that apple tree at Appomattox
he surrendered his Rword to tho genere
on tho other side; then withdrawal
from public observation, withholdiu
himself from all conceivable complier
tious, he devoted himself to the on
great work which he undertook to dh
charge. So, sir, this laud of ours obej
cd; quiet, submissive, resigned, yt
without resigning those immortal prii
ciples which aro the convictions of a lif<
time, aud which lie buried in the recesi
es of tho human heart.
Sir, all over this land of ours ther
are men like Lee-not as grout, not i
symmetrical in tho development of chi
racter, or as grand in the proportion
which they have reached, but who, lik
him, are sleeping upon memories tin
aro holy as death, and who, amidst a
reproaches, appeal to the future and t
the tribunal of history, when she sha
render her Anal judgment of that str^f
gio, and of tho people who embarked i
that struggle. We are serene, r?sign?e
obedient, sleeping upou solemu mem<
ries; but UH said bv tho poet-prophet i
the Good Book: "Hesleepeth, but tl
heart waketh"-waketh as it looks fort
from the watch tower into the futur
ouly praying now to Almighty God tin
those who have conquered may at lea
have the grace to preserve our coustiti
tion intact. Aud, sir, if it were rc
privilege to speak to the people all ov<
tho entire land, I would utter with pr
found emphasis that no people ever tr
versed the moral ideas which underl
the character of the constitution at
tho laws, that did not in tho end peri:
in disaster, shame and dishonor. Wha
ever muy be the glory of modern civil
zalion and its vast achievements it st
holds true t hat truth is immortal ai
ideas rulu the world. Aud now, sir,
li ave but a single word to say, and tb
is, that the gruvo of tim noble hero
bedewed with the most tender at
sacred tears over shed on human tom
I was sitting iu my study this nftcrno<
striving to strike some parallel betwei
tho first Washington and the secon
and I asked my own heart the que
tion: "Sitting upou the rniu of uti yo
hopes would yon not accept tho far
and the glory and tho career of Rob?
E. Leo just as soon tis the fame and t!
glory and the career of tb? immort
mau who was his predecessor?" S:
there is a pathos in fallen fortune whi
stirs thu sensibility and stirs the fou
tains of human feeling; and I am n
sure) but that at this moment Napoleo
HS tba strange guest of the Prnssi
King,- is not grander than when
ascended the throne of Franoe.
There ia a grandeur iu misfortu
when borne by a noble heart, a heart tl
bas strength to endure without bondi
or breaking. Perhaps I slide natura
into this comparison, for it is my pi
vince to teach that our hearts are me

true of a nutiou in the collective.

and guide, commander and friend; .and

Sir, there is a unity in the grapes as
they grow in clusters upon the vine;
hold a branch in the hand, and you
speak of it; but there is another unity
of the grapes when thrown into thc wine

trample upon them almost profanely,

red blood flows together in a communion
of wine; and such in the union nnd com?

we come here in a trne feeling of honest
grief and affliction, to render tribute of
praise to him upon whose face we shall
never look again, until that immortal
