Mr. N. said he owpd the senator something lore than an 'pitaph, and would honor him with a brief biographical notice of his public ifp. 'I he honorable senator commenced his career early, and iis dawn was illumined by Ur'iL'lit hones and noble aspirations. Like foiher aspir.inta for power, his early life was distinguished hy an ardent love for the peo ple, and strong professions of devotion lo po plar rights.

With n:s eyes steadily fixed on his object, and never for a moment withdrawn, the sena- Itor w itched the progress of events, and waited nuher impatiently the movements of the troub led waters of politics. The derangement ot iparxies in 182 1, was thoijuht to present a fa- Wible opportunity. I be senator enteaed up- Icn the President's course with high hopes and- anguine expectations.

The Strug s'0 terminated in the memorable contest of 88, in which the senator did not. it is true. the field in person, but, as a political part- with his eastern associate, a sort of joint toek in trad.?, with an understanding thafl they ere to divide the profits.
