incorporated hy the nam of Qniney, on 8tiir
rt7. Jul? 11. 1767, and waa haptiaed tha next
tfy in the) Conjrreaational Church m tha firwf
Pariah of Braintree. He waa named John
Quincy, in eonaeqnanc of tha intereetinf eir
cumatanee that hia maternal freat grandfather
nf that nam, wha waa tha owner nf Monnt
WcJIsston, and a leadinf civil and Military
character of hia time, in honor of whom tha
foWfiQnincf received Ite name, was actually
dying- at the hour of hie birth. " In the1 eleventh
year nf hia ir he arMmpenied hia filher to
France, who waa aent by Conpreae, aa tint
mmia?oner with BVnjanvn Franklin and Ar.
thur T.re, n the Court of Vere-U'eai They
eailfd fr m B.wton in February, 1778. and ar-
rived at B trdeauz early in April. VVhile in
Franca he waa put to ecliool and instructed in
the language o the country, aa well aa in Latin.
After about eighteen months they returned to
America in the French Iriyate La Sensible, in
company with tha Chevalier da La Luzerne,
who came out aa Mioiater of France to the Uni
ted State. TVjr arrived in Boston en the drat
ot Atiffnat, 1779. . ,
In Noeemhernf the same year, hia father waa
again despatched to Europe, ftir the dichroe
of the diplomatic services which ho renderrd to
the eaneeof America with etieh memorable a
bility and eiiccesa. He took his aon out with
htm. It eeemed to be the determination ot that
great patriot not only to do and to dare every
thing himself for hie struggling, country, but
tn keep hia son continually at hie aid ; en that
by sharing his perils and hia toils, he might be
come imbued with hi own extlied eo'husiasm
in the cause of liberty, and be prepared to vin
dicated it with all the energies of hi genius
and all the sensibility of hi mul.
While the youncer Adams waa receiving th
impression made npon him by a perticipaticai ,
in the patriotic ad vent ore and exertion or lire
father, and imh btng the wisdom and intrepid
energy of spirit for which the latter waa so die-
tingniehed, the rame effect waa heightened and
deepened by the ineureariona and exhortatinna
tn every public and private virtue contained in
the lettera of hia mother.
The opportunities and privilege of an educa
tion under such auspice were not thrown a-
way upon him, as the ineidenta of his subsequent
csreer most amply prove.
In going toe-Europe thia second time, he
embarked with hia father at Boston, in the same
French frigate, La Sensible, biuind to Brest ;
but as the ship rprting a leak in gale of wind,
it waa necessary to make the first port Ibey
could, which waa Ferrol. in Spain. The tra
velled Iroru that place to Pari by land, and ar
rived there in January, 1780. The aon wa
immediately put to school. In Ju'y of that year
Mr. Adam removed to Holland. There hia
eon waa first placed in the public city aehool at
Amsterdam, and afterward in the University
at Iyden. In July, 1781, Mr. Francia Dana,
whn had accompanied John Atfama aa aecreta
ry ot the embassy with which he waa charged.
received1 the enmmieninn nf Minister Plentpo
tentisry to the Empresa of Rimsia. and took
John Qniney Adams, then fourteen years ot age
with htm aa hia private secretary.' Here the
youncer Ailame remained until October, 1782,
when he left Mr Dana at Sr. Peteraburgh, end
returned through Sweden, Denmark, Ham
burg, and Bremen, to Holland. Upon thia jour
ney he employed the whole winter, paaaing
conaiderabla time, by the way, in Stockholm.
Copenhagen, end Hamburg. He reached
the Haffne in April, 1783, and continued aever
al montha in Holland, onitl hia father t wk him
to Parte, where he waa at the aigning of the
treaty of peace, which took place in September
of that year ; and from that time to May, 1785,
he waa r the moat part with hia father in Eng
land, Holland, and France.
At hia own solicitation, hia father permitted
him, when eighteen years of age, to return lo
hia native country. Soon alter reaching Ame
rica he entered Harvard University al an ad
vaneed etanding, aud graduated with diatingui
ahed honor aa bachelor of art, in 1787. Ha
then entered the office of the celebrated Th o
philua Parsons, at Newburyport, afterward
Chief Justice of Maeaachueetla and after the
usual lerm of three year peaaed in the atudy
of. Iha Jaw, h entered the profeaaron and estab
lished himttlf at Bunion..
; He remained tn that aitnalion year, occn-pyiof-

taaoe proved the aagaeity of Publieola. Thee
pfeeee were at firat ascribt-d to hia father. They
were reprinted in England.
Tn Apri', 1703, on th Ural Information nf
war between Great Britain and , France, and
before Washington had published hia proclama
tion pf neutrality, or it waa known that such a
etep wa contemplated hjr him, Mr A. published
in the Boaton Centinel three article, aigned
Mareellus the objeet of which waa to prove
that the duty and intereat of the United State
required them to remain neutral in thai war.

waa then recalled, jurt before the clnee of hia

In 1802 he waa elected, from the Bosten die-
trict, a member of the Massachuaetta Senate,
and waa anon after appointed, by the Legirla-
lure nf that Slate, a Senator in thn Cnngrrea nf
the Ui.ited Statea for eix year from the 4th of

him to adopt a course which he had reason to

in March, 1808. In March, 1809, President
Madison nominated him Envoy Extraordinary

and ao rich hia resources ol liturstuie and lan

published in two octavo volume, were throng
ed not only by the students of the University,
rut by bar numbers of the admirers uf elo
quence snd geniu, who came from Boaton and
the neighboring town to Itatrn to them.
During hia whole lire, Mr. Adoma hae culti
vated the gracea of eU.cutiun, and m addition

acie.neee, of the ancient and modern language,
and of the literature and history , of all nation,

Mr, Adama aignalieed bimaelf while in Rue
aia by an energetic, feithlut, and wiae diacharge
of the trust committed to him. II succeeded
in making each an impreeaion upon lhat Gov
ernment, by hia reasoning and influence that
it hae ever aince been acmated by a feeling of
kmdneea towarda the United State, which hae
been Of incalculable benefit to thia country. It
waa through hi instrumentality that the Rus
sian Court waa induced to take active measures
to promote a pacification between England and
the United Statea during Ihu last war.
When the proper time came, he waa named
al the head nf the five eommiesionera whn were
appointed by President Madison to negotiate a
treaty of peace with Great Britain. The cele
brated diplomatic transaction took place at
Ghent, in December, 1814. Mr. Adama then
proceeded in conjunction with Henry Clay and
Albert Gallatin, who had been aaeociated with
bint in concluding the treaty of peace, to nego
tiate convention of commerce with Great Bri
tain and he waa forth with appointed by Presi
dent Madimn, Miniater Plenipotentiary at tha
Court of St. Jamea,
It la moat remarkable coincidence that, aa
hia father took the leading part in negotiating
the treaty that ' terminated the revolutionary
war with Great Britain, and first discharged the
office of American Ambsasadnr to Imdon; ao he
waa at the head of the commission that nego
tiated the treaty which brought the second war
wjth Great Britain to a close, and auateined the
firitt mission to that country upon th return of

to represent the United State at the moat pow
erful courtt in the world, St Peterebnrg and
Ijnnrion, and committed to hia leading agency
the momentous duty nf arranging a treaty of
peace with Great Britain.
It is enoueh to ray, that throughout thi long
and brilliant career of foreign public service,
he deserved, and received from his country, the
encomium which Wsnhingtnn pronounced upon
him, when, in 1797, he declared htm 'the mnet
valuable publie character we have abroad, and
the ablest of all our diplomatic corps.' While
Secretary of State an office which he hpld du

ministration he discharged his duties in sneh
a manner aa to inrresre the confidence of hia
countrymen in hia ability and patriotism. Under
his influence the clnim on Spain were adjusted,
Florida ceded to the Union, and I ho republic
of South America recngniznd. It will bo the
more appropriate duty of hia futnre biographer
to present a full view of the vast amount of Is
bor which he expended in the public service
while msnagipg the Department of State.
In the Presidentinl election which took place
in the fall nfl4. Mr. Adams was one of the
candidates. No candidate received a majority
of electoral vntea. When, on the 9th of Febru
ary, 1825, the two houses nf Congress met in
convention, in the hall nf the House of Repre
sentatives, to open, and count, and declare the
electoral votes, it waa found that Andrew Jack
son had 99 votes, John Qniney Adams 84 vote,
William H. Crawford 41 votes, and Henry Clay
37 vntea. According to the requirement of
the constitution, the Senate then withdrew, and
the House remained to ballot for a President un
til a cho'ee could be rffl-cled. - ' '
The whole number of Statea waa twenty
fonr. The voice of thirteen State were necrs-
ry for a choice. At the fire-t ' ballot it was
found that Maine, New Hampshire, Massacho-
lis, Rhnde lland, Connecticut, Vermont,
New York, Maryland, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois.
Misrotiri and . Ijiuitiana, thirteen Slate, had
voted lor 'John Qniney Adama, of Massachu
setts,' and he wia accnidingty elected Presi
dent of the United Stales fur four yer from
the fourth of March, 1825.
The time 1 approaching when justice will bo
done to Ihe administration of John Quii-cv
Adam. The passions nf that day are already
fsst subsiding, and the partieaand combinations
lhat arose under the exciting influences nf the
time have long eince been dissolved and scat
tered. -The clear verdict of noeieritv mav al
most be heard,' even now, in the formal ac
knowledgment of its merit by the people of the
country, in all ita variou sections. In the re
lationa he rnstained to the members of his cabi
net, 1n his enmmiinicat'tnn tn the two houses,
and in all hia proceedings, there is a tini'orm
manifestation nf, wisdom, industry, moderation
and devoted patriotism.
The great effort of hia administration waa to
mature, into a permanent aystem, the applica
tion nf all the superfluous revenue nf the Union
to internal imprnvement. Thia policy was first
suggested in a resolution introduced by him,
and adopted by the Senate of the United States,
in 106, and waa fully unfolded in hie fret mes
sage io Congress in 1825. It will be the duty
of the philosophical historian of the country,
half a century hence, lo contrast the probab'e
