While her sister was conversing with her

to procure a light, but before they returned
tho deceased had ceased to address her sis
tcr. The door wa then broken open, and
no one discovered In the room, and the
party returning to the lower floor found the
body of tbe deceased being conveyed through
the hall to an adjoining room, she having
been discovered lying on the p-ivemcnt In
front of the house.
Coroner Totter summoned a Jury at 1
o'clock yesterday nfternoon, and after hear

SiRt In common with all truly patriotic
citizens, the colored people of the United
States bare noted with regret the train of
events which hare resulted In your retire
ment from public life) and we, the under
signed, acting for them In oar capacity as a
national executlre committee, take tbe earli
est opportunity afforded to us since the dote
of your senatorial career, to glre expression
to the sentiments of continued regard and
esteem which yon are still and we doubt not
erer shall be held by them.
Nearly the fifth of a century has passed
away since yon were called to take part In
the deliberations of the highest legfslallTe
council In our land. Wecaatour gate back
ward over that lapse of time, and we grate
fully acknowledge that, throughout Us entire
extent, yonrs Is an unblemished record.
It matters not at what period that
record be examined) whether ft be within
the last few years when the hearts of nearly
all our statesmen haTe been constrained,
through the sense of threatening peril, to
beat In consonance with freedom, or In those
earlier days which followed the conversion
of the free North Into a great hunting-
5 round of fugitives from Southern thral
om days when the voice of outraged hu
manity coma oniy ncro ana lucre, eitocr
within or without our Congressional halls,
awake a sympathizing response. At what
ever period that examination be made, yonr
earnest ability, your Incorrnptlblo zeal and
your unfaltering fortitude confront the
search and challenge alike our gratitude and
our admiration. We congratulate yon, sir,
upon that change In the political sentiment
of tho nation which finally Installed as tho
presiding officer of the Senate one who. at
his adveut therein, belonged to an organiza
tion so unhealthy as to prcclndo him from
service upon any Important committee.
As you withdraw from the arena which
has so long witnessed your devoted cham
pionship of right, bo assured, sir, that you
bear along with you our slnccro prayers for
your future health and prosperity, coupled
with the wish that your retirement may not
be of louir duration! but that, lu some post
of highest honor, the country will feel that
It still stands In uecd of you. Whcthar this
wish bo realized or not, we are confident
that tho cessation of your labors In behalf
of the public will bring with It no cessation,
either of jour patriotic ardor or of Its re
quital in a people's love. We forget not
tuai iaio, in tno scansion oi nis oauine
villa, was as detotcd to his country, and as
fondly cherished In his fellow-countrymen's
regard as when their eager gaze rested upon
his revered form In the Senate house al
In behalf of the National Executive Com
mittee of colored men.
Geo. T. Dowkio, President.
F. O. BtnuADOEs, Secretary.
To Otorae T. Dotenlnq. tw . nJ ottur$ of
un "National Aieaitit Vommmtt oj votorta
-wm." uEfTLEMEt i Dinco hit retirement
from public life, I have received inanv kind
anu complimentary communications irora
tnr frlenila. which I vnlttA ptmIIt. Imt
nothing hat ghen me so much pride nn a
. . : . - ? : .
satisfaction as ine proceedings oi your na
tional Executive Committee. To know that
one's labors are appreciated and approved
Dy mote on wuoso ucnan tncy nave occn per
formed, Is Indeed gratifying.
It Is truo that for more than thirty years,
whether In tbe Legislature of mv own State.
as a Judge upon tho bench, In tbe Senate of
the United States, or In private life, I have,
with resolute and determined purpose,
labored to bring the Constitution and laws of
my country Into harmony with the lawt of
uou, wno -it no respecter ot pcrsont."
Equality before the law and exact Jutttcc
to all men, without respect to race, color or
nationality, has been the polar star to guide
me In all my efforts, and the prizo for which
I hare fouiclit. Nor am I conscious that I
have ever during that time subordinated
those great principles to any other, or com
promised them for anr other consideration
whatever. Yet I claim no special merit for
thlsltwas but tbe performance of a plain
and palpable duty which every man owes to
hit God. to his countrr and to hnmanltr.
Had I done lest, It would have been a self
degrndntlon for which I should have despised
in) self, even at I have despised all others
who may have compromised these great
principle tnrougn cowardice, teir interest or
ambition. And now. thank Ood. after a
thirty yeirt battle, I have lived to tco these
Irinclplct trlumphant,ccryman lu our great
tepublic equal before the law, nnd the la
borer relieved the foulest and moat degrading
violation ot nis nguti.
But. In ray Judgment, much more remains
to be uonet for I cau never bellcvo a govern
ment perfect while It Is possible for one man
to appropriate tno nvausoi tneiauoroi tnon
sands, whllo those that perform tho labor
pine away their life In poverty and destitu
tion, or to monopolize ou unlimited extent of
uoa s cartn to mo exclusion or others. I heso
etlU are yet to be corrected, aod may I not
expect that you who hava becu so 1-itcly
emancipated from the foulest oppression und
Injustice wilt take the lead In these great
unit necessary rciorinsi
ricnte accept my thauks for tho kind sen
timents contained in your letter.
Yourt, with respect, B. F. Wade.
