greatest Soldiers and Statesman Mis
souri has ever known, ebbed peace
fully away, at his rooms, at the Hud-
gins house in this city, surrounded
by friends and the few relations that
survive him. He had been sick for
some time past, but bis illness did
not assume a dangerous form until
a few day before his death. He was
affiioted with no particular disease,
but having made up his mind that be
had outlived his generation, gave up
to die and refused to take such med
ioine or uounshment as was neoessa-
ry to prolong his life.

he was benevolent, honest and useful,
with a character pure ana uncorrupt-
able. In all the relations of life as
