Freneatatiaa ot Medal to Mr. CUf.
The friends of Mr. Clay, in the City of New
York, recently presented him Kith a splendid
gold meduL The following is Mr. Clay re
ply to the address of the Committee appointed
to deliver the present :
Gentlemen t Tint is among the most inter
esting and gratifying days of my life, although
I have been confined to these rooms for a long
time b a tedious and doubtful illness. You have
come here, the representatives of a large and en
lightened body of ardent and devoted friends of
mine in the city of New York, to present to me
a beautiful and costly gold medal, intended to
commemorate my public life. On one face of
it is engraved all Ihe great publio measures a
dopted in the National Councils in which I was
supposed to have had any conspicuous agency,
and on the other a remarkable and accurate like
ness of me. The time and the place of presen
tation, and the friends who have contributed this
splendid testimonial, give to it an inestimable
value. The time is when I am about to retire
forever from public life, and when I cannot ex
ptct much longer to linger here below; the place
is tt.T Pity of Washington, the principal theatre
of tho3 publio services which have commended
themselves to your approbation. Throughout
my public life J have been blessed, everywhere
in the United Stales, with more or fewer true
friends, to whom I ai7 bound by the strongest
sentiments of gratitude; .'"ut no where have they
surpassed those in the city New York in zeal,
constancy, and fidelity, and iu .distinguished and
various demonstrations of their affection and at
tachment. Whilst one is in the ardent pursuit
of public life, and i lid J up for it Lights! hon
ors, it is not practicable always to discriminate,
among his supporters, between those w'10 D'
stow their suffrages from pure, patriotic dis
kiterested motives, and those who are acvJtaJed
by selfish ends; but on this occasion no such dlf-
liculty exists. You have come, at much per
sonal inconvenience, to the bed of a sick and af
flicted friend, to present to him, in your names
and in the name of a numerous body of his per
sonal and political firiends, whom you represent,
a most precious token of your esteem and affec
tionate regard. That friend has not now, and
never will have, any public patronage to dis
pense. The high and honorable and disinteres
ted character of your motives cannot, therefore,
Gentlemen, I request you to accept yourselves,
and to communicate to my absent friends whom
you represent, my cordial and heartfelt thanks,
and my grateful profound acknowledgments, for
this rich tribute to the sentiments which they
do me the honor to entertain towards me. I
should have been most happy to express my
great obligations to all of them personally, if it
had been in my power.
I shall soon pass from the jurisdiction of my
contemporaries and of the present generation to
that of history and posterity, if the one shall
deem me worthy of any record on its pages, or
tradition shall transmit any recollection of me
to the other.
It is not within my legitimate province to ex
press any opinion of my own publio career or
fublic deeds. That office belongs to them, and
consider my future fame fortunate if it shall
be regarded by them with a small proportion of
the favor with which the partiality of yourselves
and vour associate mow contemplate it,
I shall soon appear before a higher and more
holy tribunal than any earthly one, which can
unerringly judge of tne motives as well at the
acts of man. To that tribunal I look forward
with composure and confidence that I shall be
acquitted of bavin? ever been prompted, in the
discharge of my public duties, by any mean or
sordid or selfish ends, or beet animated by any
other purpdso than to promote the honor, the
prosperity, and glory of our common country.
Medals are generally ttruck by the authority
and paid for out of the public treasury of the
Government, and most frequently are intended
to reward and signalize the triumphs achieved
in war. But that which vou now so kindly ten
der to my acceptance is the spontaneous olloring
of private citizens, from their private purse, for
nulilin servir-M exclusively in the civil depart-

Mr. Clay expressed a favorable opinion of
the head, as giving his features witn great truth
fulness, but playfully remarked that he did not
know before that his nose was quite eo promi
nent; and then added, in allusion to the great
intrinsic value of the medal from its material,
"Who can tell, but fifty or a hundred yetrs
hence, tome Goth may get hold of thit and say
the nose of this old dead fellow will serve to buy
me a great many things that I want, and may
carry it off? However, it is a capital likeness,
I think." The artists, said Mr. C, have not
generally succeeded well in taking my features,
but that has been in a great measure, my own
fault; for my face never retains long the same
expreasion, und, especially when I am under any
excitement, it changes every moment. John
Randolph once paid me a high compliment, not
intentionally for he seldom complimented any
man but, without intending it, he paid me what
I esteem one of the highest compliments I ever
received. He said that whenever a debate is
coming on, if I could get a sight of Mr. Clay's
face, I can always tell which tide he is going to
This transition from the grave to the gay is
so characteristic of Mr. Clay that no one who
has seen him in his hours of confidence,' can fail
to be reminded bv it of many an association that,
while it kindles a smile, will be followed but
too soon bv a surh
The medal does the highest honor to the tal
ents and skill of the artist, who, we understand,
is Mr. Wright, of New York.
