PRESENTATION OF THE TESTIMONIAL
TO COlf. M C PERRY.
A correspondent of the Providence (R.
I.) Journal, writing from Newport, under
date of the 14th instant, furnishes the
following particulars of the interesting
ceremony of the presentation of a testi
monial by Governor Iloppin, of Rhode
Inland, to Commodore M. C. Perry, U.
S. N. The writer sajs:
"This boing the day appointed by
Governor Iloppin to present the testimo
nial voted by the General Assembly, at
the January session, to Commodore
Perry, for their appreciation of his ser
vices to his country iu negotiating a trea
ty of amity and commerce with Japan,
the ceremony took place at 5 o'clock, p.
m., on the balcony in front of the State
House. A largo number of the good cit
izens and strangers assembled at the ap
pointed hour, embracing the beauty and
fashion of Newport. Many beautiful
equipages were also drawn up in front of
the State House, while the windows of
the adjacent houses, filled with ladies,
showed how deep an interest the fair sex
took iu the ceremony. It was proposed
to have a military display on the occa
sion, but with the modesty and good
sense which marks every act of the dis
tinguished oflicer who was to be the re
cipient of the testimonial, he preferred
that the ceremony shou'd, as far as pos
sible, be confined to the civil authorities,
particularly as the members of the Senate
and House of Representatives would be
piesent. Unfortunately, a shower of rain
fell while the people were assembling,
but it was of brief duration, and was
succeeded by a bright sun.
"On the balcony stood a table, upon
which was so placed the piecs of plate to
be presented, that it could be seen by the
assembled people. Governor Hoppin
stood at one side of this, and Commodore
Perry, in full uniform, on the other.
Lieutenant Bent, of tho Navy, Sheriff
Lake, several Senators and other State
officials, with many distinguished citi
zens and strangers fillel the remaining
space, while the other Senators and
members of the House occupied places
near.
"On presenting the testimonial, Gov.
Iloppin addressed Commodore Perry as
follows:
"Respected Sit: It is with great per-'
sonal gratification that I accept the hon-1
or to become the instrument of convey
ing to you a token ot the deep feelings of
respect and interest with which the Gen
eral Assembly of Bhode Island have re
garded your course in the late difficult
negotiations with the Empire of Japan.
" They have watched the whole* pro
gress of this important enterprise from
its inception to its happy termination,
with lively interest. They felt the sin
gular embarrassment of your position?
the more so from the fact that the honor
of your own native State was involved
in your success. They had no fear as
far as yourself was concerned, that all
things would not be accomplished with
characteristic faithfulness and wisdom?
but under all the possible contingencies
of so great a movement, the vast compli
cation of the details, the distance of the
scene of operations, the rivalry of other
nations, the total uncertainty of the bar
barian mind ?they could not but have
great solicitude. That solicitude is now
past. The object which was every wav
worthy of its dignified origin, and of the
energies and sympathies of a great and
enlightened nation, has been achieved ;
and achieved also, under God, we believe,
mainly through your own perseverance,
sagacity and skill.
" WJjere many might have failed through
over much boldness, or cver-much fear,
you seem to have pursued that golden
middle course that conducted to perfect
this success.
" That which has been accomplished
is held by the General Assembly of
iihode Island to be of the greatest mo
ment?both in the view of the commer
cial interests of land, and the general
interests of humanity.
"The Island of Japan, stretching
across fifteen degrees of latitude, and
containing, probably a* many inhabit
ants as the Luited States, who are gifted
as a race with no common degree of in
tellectual force and industrial talent?
these islands, closed to the world for
nearly two centuries, and never entirely
opaned for benefit, or to be benefitted br
other nations?have now unlocked their
gates at the touch of power clothed with
kindness. This was a new kind of tri
umph. Military power, even while car
rying the sword" at its side and the thun
der-bolt at its command, yet choose to
employ the weapons of reasou and of
love.
" The General Assembly of Rhode
Island sec in this a certain foreshadow,
ing of a moro wise method of settling
international questions, and of recon
ciling all diiTerences between govern
ments.
" The results cf the Japan Expedition
have proved that there need be no lack
of firmness, and no lowering of just de
man?ls in the exercise of the utmost spirit
of concil ation. The material advantages
to be derived by our nation from the
treaty with Japan may ba seen at a
glance. What Holland by her jealous
intrigues, has heretofore drawn from her
commerce with Japan, in a very limited
degree, will probably, in the course of
time, be turned towards us in a mighty
stream. And the boldness and wisdom
which have secured for us the first place,
will, as iu the case of England with
China, fairly contribute to enrich us,
while shutting out no others. But Ja
pan, as a stepping-stone from our Pacific
coast to the coast of Asia, lying only
tweu.y days from California, afl'oiding a
new depot for the track of Asiatic coin*
merce, and a new place of supply, seems
to promise to oonnect America and Asia
together, as they never hare been con
nected before. And there are, we con
ceive, still higher views of the results of
the treaty ot amity lately concluded with
Japan. The cause of humanity has made
a decided advance with that treaty. Not
only will the unfortunate mariner, cast
upon that merciless coast, now be as
sured of kind treatment, and the dead
from foreign lands now receive a decent
sepulture, but the heart of this great
peop e will be softened from its stern fe
rocity, ita manners will be gradually
ameliorated and elevated by contact with
a Christian civilization, and the oppor
tunity will be given for sowing among
them the seeds of a pure religion. The
fact that an Empire, twice sealed up by
its own idolatry and by its former terri
ble experience of a nominal Christianity,
may now be slowly opened for the intro
duction of the religion of tho Gospel, is a
fireat and glorious fact, which it must be
pleasing, sir, for you especially to con
template.
44 Were this the occasion, and would
time permit, many highly interesting ad
ditional facts relating to your personal
history in connection with the mission to
Japan might be presented. The unwa
vering faith which you had in the suc
cess of the expedition, akin to that which
animated the spirit and fortified the cour
age of the great discoverer of this conti
nent?the extraordinary discretionary
powers confided to you by your govern
ment, and the wise, humane, and benefi
C' ntu-?e which you madeof those powers
the memorable and delicate consideration
manifested by you in the treaty stipula
tions for the just rights of the Japanese
women, thus recognizmgin that far distant
land the appropriate influence ef women in
all the important aftairs of life?the great
moral power of the course of policy and
rules of conduct which you adopted, es
peciaily m declining to receive or make
visits of ceremony, or to negotiate on the
Christian Sabbath?thereby presenting
to the minds of this intelligent and ob
n^rving people, irrefutable proof of the
respect and reverence of your nation for
that great commandment of the Al
m'?hty, which is enjoined upon us all
44 to remember the Sabbath day, to keep
? ??~^iese an(* kindred topics afiord
rich food for thought and invite to ex
tended remarks; but I forbear.
Permit me now, sir. to present to
you, in tlie name of your native State
which cherishes, as among its most price
less possessions, the name and memory
of yeur heroic brother-this piece of
pia.e, voted to you by the General As
sembly of Rhode Island, in such terras
as must give you gratification. The
plate is altogether of Rhode Island fab
ric: and from this circumstance its slight
intrins:c value may be increased in your
estimation.
. 4< 1S least, sir, a sincere expres
sion of the respect and approval, of your
fellow-citizens of Rhode Island. They
rejoice that the name of Perry is still a
word of strength to your profession knd
country, 'lhey rejoice that the olive leaf
of Peace is entwined with its unfadine
laurel. ?
1 receive, through me, the con
gratulations of your friends in Rhode
Island, and their earnest wishes that
your life aud usefulness may be lonr nrc
served." ? *
The following are Commodore Perry's
remarks in ieply:
^ ut r Excellekct ; It is impossible
or me to ej press the feelings of grati
.ud<i with which my heart responds to
e "altering expressions you have this
moment uttered in your capacity of Gov
ernor of the gall aw t little State of Rhode
Island, and as the organ of both branches
of its legislative body.
*ou ^ay well imagine my pride and
satisfaction in being permitted thus to
stand before this assembly, and upon a
spot sanctified by the most agreeable as
sociations.
44 It was in my earliest boyhood, be
fore the intioduction of steamboats or
railroad, that I often watched upon the
shore for the first glimpse of the gaily
decorated packet sloop that in those days
annually brought thu Governor from
Providmee to this town, and witnessed
with cliild-iike delight, in sight of this
very edifice, tho pomp, parade, and fes
tivities of44 election day."
44 Since then I have traversed almost
every pait of ti.e globe, in the prosecu
tion of the duties ol a profession of
winch I am justly proud; and now, after
a lapse of nearly half & century when
in declining life, to be called b^ the Ren
reseiitatiyes of my native State back to
tneso hallowed precincts, here to receive
from the lips of its Chief Magistrate the
commendations of my fellow-citixens, is
an honor I little expected, when, as a boy
miushipman forty-six ycars ago, I first
embarked upon an element then and al
ways the most congenial to my aspiration
lor honorable emprise.
44 And should I not feel doubly hon
ored in finding my public services asso
ciated with thoso of a lamenied brother
the memory of whose heroic deeds has st>
far been, and I trust ever will be, fo^lv
cherished by every true hearty Rh0/e
Islander.
" Is conducting the mission to Japan,
whicn a confiding government entrusted
to my sole charge, I was fully impressed
with the magnitude of the responsibility
imposed upon me; and true to this gen
erous reliance upon my judgment and
discretion, was the more ambitious to ac
complish an objcct which to many seemed
unattainable. You have just now, sir,
told me how these services are appre
ciated by those of my compatriots who
are nearest and deaiest to me?and I am
satisfied.
44 The valuable testimonial, rj0W prc.
sented with so much cloquep.ce and erace
shall bo prewired ia ?y
heirloom, to commemorate an event to
rdMy V1 Wh? lnaJ ** allied
fimV t if ?k ??^ to the grateful re
cipient, who begs to tender to your Ex
cellency and all her present his profound
aud heartfelt thanks."
The testimonial consists of a magnifi
cent silver salver, of unusually large di
mensions, massive in weight, and almost
elaborately chased. This salver is oval
io form, 28 inches long inside the handles,
and about 36 inches outside. It weighs
319 ounces. The embellishments and de
signs arc entirely in the border, which is
four inches in its greatest width, the cen
tre being left plain to receive the inscrip
tion. The opposite centres of the bor
der midway between the handles, are oc
cupied by the coat-of-arms of the United
States and of Rhode Island, in bold re
lief?the former supported upon a clus
ter of flags of the I niNd States, and th?
latter surrounded by a wreath of palm
leaves. The handles, which a*e large,
and composed of scroll and shell work,
are so arranged as to form a portion of
the border, by which means the awkward
appearance of detached pieces is avoided
Immediately beneath, or inside of each
hindle, is a large eagle, in bold relief. At
the quarters, midway between the han
dles and the ooats of-arms, are four com
partments, formed by the arrangement of
the scroll work, containing clusters of
fruit from all countries. The olive branch,
bearing fruit, is entwined among the
scroll work. The handles, though very
large, do not have that appearance, ow
ing to the great width of the border, and
the manner in which they are connected.
This salver was designed, modeled and
made in every particular in the establish
ment of Messrs. Gorham A Co., and there
is no doubt it has the heaviest border ev
er manufactured in this country. It was
designed and modeled by Mr. Wm. Clark,
who is in the employment of the man
ufacturers. The centre was engraved by
G W. Babcock. The case, which is of
beautiful workmanship, is of solid rose*
wood, in the form of the salver, and
mounted with heavy plated trimmings.
This was made by Messrs. Wm. C. Mil
lard and Co., William street, and up
holstered by B. A. Norton, Westminster
street. We may confidently pronounce
the whole one of the most exquisitely
beautiful pieces of silver work ever exe
cuted in the United States, reflecting
great credit on the taste and skill of the
firm by which it was designed and ex
ecuted.
The following is the inscription:
'?Presented to Commodore Matthew
Calh&aitit Perrt, in the r.ame of the
people of ;he State ef Rhode Island, by
their General Assembly, in testimony of
their appreciation of his services to his
country in negotiating a treaty ot amity
and commerce with Japan, and in ac
knowledgement of the honor he has cc -1
ferred upon his native State, maintaining
the renown of the name he bears, and ad
ding to the triumphs of his profession
hose of humanity and peace. February
28, 1855."
