Thumbnail for

The President of the United Stales and his
son passed through Philadelphia on Monday
last. It is said th.t he was informed of the
death of his venerable father on his arrival in
Baltimore.
It is expected in Boston that tlie President
of the United States, will be the Biographer of j
his Father, who has left’ many valuable manu- j
scripts filed away for publication, in the most
accurate and methodical manner, independent
ofa Journal, which he has always kept. A
writer in the Centinel supposes chat the labo
rious avocations of the President will not per- !
mil him to undertake the sacred task,’St speaks !
of Josiaii Quincy, as a competent and fit per- j
'.on.
The Boston Patriot, in speaking of the Death
of Mr. Adams, says, that having been for
some da s sinking, ‘•On the Jubilee of Inde
pendence, his declining faculties were roused by
the rejoicings in the metropolis. He inquired
the cause of the salutes, and was told it was the
fourth of July. He answered,‘it is a great and
glorious day ’ He never spake more. Thus
his last thoughts and his latest words were like
those of his whole life, thoughts and words
which evinced a soul replete with luve of coun
try and interest in her welfare.”
. The Mavorof Baltimore,in his comfnunica
tion to the Council of that city, remarks, like
a sensible man, superior to old party prejudices,
and grateful for the services of the authors of
our liberty,—that Jefferson and Adams, the na
tional benefactors and virtuous and enlighten
ed statesmen and philanthropists, “ought no! !o
pais info the silent tomb without particular notice
“Therefore,” he says, “a meeting of the Coun
cil has been called to take into consideration
the propriety of recording in (heir journals ex
pressions of the feelings of the Corporation of
Baltimore, on this very extraordinary and so
lemn occasion, and to recommend to the citi
zens, the manner in which respect to the me
mories of the lamented compatriots, Adams
and Jefferson, may be most suitably demonstrat
ed.” Such sentiments exalt, not the illustrious
dead, but the Mayor and Citizens of Baltimore,
w ho have proved themselves worthy of free
dom, by a manifestation of regard for its ori
gin, and a political toleration that can award
alike to Adams a«»d Jefffrson the meed of
their great usefulness and honest labors. Bal
timore, however, is not alone in her magnani
mous course. To the eternal honor of out
country, the papers from every quarter of the
Union that has been penetrated by the melan
choly new*, teem with proofs of a similar feel
ing. We have more especially named Balti
more, because the Mayor has said so truly and
so eloquently that these great patriots
not to pass into the silent tomb without particular
notice**
It is asserted by the New York Evening Post
that the lamented Fisher Ames, in whom this
nation lost one of its brightest ornaments, also
ended his worldly cutcer on the anniversary ol
American Independence.
New-Orleans papets to the 20th ultimo have
been received at New-York, by the packet ship
Russel. The Louisiana Advertiser of the 19th
says,41 We learn from Mr. Wilie, that on Satur
day, after the Price Current was put to press,
all the flour on the Levee was'hought up by
speculators, at the prices at which he had quot
ed it. There is now none in first hands, and
unless the arrivals should be large, the article
must advance considerably.”
It is published in the Ncw-York papers, for
tVie government of our merchants, that the new
quarantine regulations ol Spain requiring a;l
vessels from the United States having clean
bills of health, provided there has has' been no
sickness on board, to go to V igo Bay and per
form a quarantine of five or six days: went into
•operation on the 1st of June, and will continue
till the 15th of November.
[From the Baltimore Commercial Chronicle.]
Among the last wotds uttered by the lament
ed Jefferson, were the following:—“/ hare done
for my country and mankind, all that l could. mid
I note resign my soul, without fear Jo my tied, AND
MY DAUGHTER TO MY CO’ NTRY.”—
I’hese are emphatic vvords, and breathe at once
the spirit of Christian resignation, and an un
shaken reliance upon the gratitude and justice
of his country lie has committed his daught
er and her eleven children to his country, to
whom he devoted upwards of sixty years ot his
life—for whom he sacrificed the best and dear
est interests of himself and family—rendered
himself a bankrupt, and left his descendants !
pennyless—under such circumstances, and thus j
situated, he has committed his daughter to his i
country—he had a right to do so; and we feel I
assured that that country will take pleasure in ;
recognising the justice of the appeal; the work
which has been so nobly begun must be con
tinued, and the family of the Patriarch of Mon
*:ce!lo, whose elegant though frugal hospitality,
so recently reflected honor upon America, must
not be permitted to be driven from a home, en-1
deured to them, as well as to the nation, by every j
ennobling consideration. l'he only regret he fell j
v tn quitting this life, arose from the circumstance j
ythnt his debts were not paid— this was a regret bo- j
ijorable to him, and carries with it a strong and
powerful appeal to his countrymen—shall it be j
said that America—proud and happy America, j
who looks to 'the Declaration of Indepen
dence as the Magna Charta of her rights—who
hails it on every returning anniversary, as the
palladium of her liberty—we say, shall it be
said that she permitted its Author to die in
f riury, and had not generosity enough, to step
rward and save to his offspring, the home
which had sheltered him and them from the
peltings of the pitiless storm—shall such a re
proach go forth to the world—shall Europe,
who so recently heard of our civic arches—up
on whose shores, distant as they are, the echoes
of our gratititude reverberated, in paying hon
ors to the Nation’s Guest—shall Europe be
now told—shall our acts proclaim it as upon
the four winds of heaven, that we built aiches,
voted money to I^afayette; and suffered Jeffer
son, the Apostle of Liberty, the beloved of Re
publicans, the pride and boas» of America, to
die in want and be forgotten—forbid it justice.
If we would prove the sincerity of our profes
sions of love and veneration, we must do some
thing more solid than sounding his praise; the
debt we owe him must be cancelled—the nation
must become pay-master—his debts must be
paid, and his creditors satisfied out of the na
tional Treasury, and as to whatever may have
been, or whatever shall vet he raised, by private
munificence, let that be given to that daughter
and her children, whom he has so feelingly
commended to the protection oT the American
people.
From the Boston Centimi of Saturday.
INTERMENT OF MU. ADAMS.
Agreeably to arrangements made, the re
mains of the lion. JOHN ADAMS were en
tombed yesterday afternoon, at Quincy, with
every token of veneration, respect and affection.
An immense bony of citizens assembled from
various'paits of the State. Several carriages
were from Salem, and more remote towns.
A corps of artillery, stationed on Mount
Wallaston, fired minute guns, during the whole
time of the funeral sen ices, and several simi
lar tokens of respect were heard in the adjoin
ing towns; the bells of which were tolled, and
the Hags on various gun-houses, Sec. were hoist
ed half-staff.
The Relatives of the deceased, the Societies,
a"d others, assembled at the. late President’s
mansion.
The citizens of Quincy met in the town-hall,
organized, and moved in a body to the vicinity
of the mansion-house, when, about 4 o’clock,
tne Funeral Procession was formed, under the
direction of several Marshals, composed of
Gentlemen of Quincy.

The procession was of great length. When
the front arrived at the meeting-house, the ci
tizens of Quincy opened ranks,while the corpse,
the relatives, and others, entered the Church,
the pulpit and galleries of which were dressed
in mourning, The house was thronged.
The services commenced and closed with
anthems. The Rev. Mr. Whitney, Pastor of
the Society, addressed the Throne oi Grace in
prayer, and delivered an impressive Sermon, in
which he gave a summary of the eminent ser
vices, distinguished talents, amiable life, and
Christian virtues of his venerated parishioner.
The body was then borne to the burial ground
ar.J deposited in the family tomb.
MEETING IN THE CITY HALL.
tt’ashingfo/i,JuJy 13.—Pursuant to the public
notice by the Mayor, the citizens assembled last
evening in the City Mall, to adopt measures to
pay similar honors to the memory of John A
dams, with those accorded to the memory of
Thomas Jefferson. We were again gratified
with the presence of Mr. Rush, Mr. Barbour,
Mr Southard, Mr. M’Lean, and a number of
others, individuals eminent in the several States
of the Union, who mixed among, and entered
fully into, the feelings of their fellow-citizens, in
relation to this solemn event. Very eloquent
addresses were delivered by Mr. Rush and Mr.
Barbour, and resolutions corresponding with
those of Saturday, preceded by a feeling*and
appropriate preamble, offered by Judge Thrus
ion and by Mr. Watf:rstov, were unanimous
ly adopted. The meeting, which seemed deep
ly impressed with the solemnity of the occasion,
desirous of uniting in future the names of the
two patriots, whose earliest exertions and latest
aspirations were given to their country; whose
efforts were united in laying the corner stone of
the Republic; and whose spirits look their flight
on the same day—that of the Jubilee celebration
of our Independence. \\ :th this view, the
meeting resolved to request that Mr Wirt, who
had been selected to pronounce the eulogy on
Mr. Jefferson, should unite with it that of Mr
Adams. We will be furnished with the pro
ceedings in detail for our next paper.^
Nut. Jour.
from the yatioul Advocate.
PUBLIC FEELING.
We have never seen New-York exhibit such
a state of feeling as it did bn the day before yes
terday, when’he news of Jefferson’s death was
made known to the people. Coming so sud
denly upon us after that of Adams, and attend
ed with circumstances so peculiar, it roused
the attention of every individual in this great
community. Nothing was heard after the first
silent emotions of astonishment, but how
strange! how singular! what a coincidence!” 6c
other interjectional expressions of the like kind.
The public authorities took immediate meas
ures on the occasion. The Court of Sessions
adjourned and a meeting of the Common Coun
cil was called. The Park and Chatham Thea
tres, and *he Broadway Circus were closed.—
The shipping in the harbour*showed their flags
half mast, and the streamers from the different
places of public amusement indicated a similar
feeling. The death of two such men on the
same day, and so near each other in point of
time, was felt by the whole community. Friend
stopped friend in the street and expressed in a
few broktn words their surprise and astonish
ment. The very children that play about the
streets, although they could form no adequate
conception of the intelligence, yet seemed to
feel out of sympathy for their parents 8c friends.
It was indeed a fit occasion for the deepest pu b
lic feeling. The like never has happened in the
world, nor can it ever happen, wc may almost
say with certainty.
The first time the Declaration of Indepen
dence was publicly read in Massachusetts was
itt Worcester The express, on his way to Bos
ton, furnished Isaiah 1 homas, Esq. ith a co
py for publication in the Spy, of which lie was
at that time the publisher. The news of its re
ceipt soon spread throughout the town, and a
large concourse of people collected, all anxious
to see or hear so extraordinary a document —
To gratify their curiosity, Mr. Thomas ascend
ed the portico of the South Meeting House,
(then the only one in town) and read it to those
who were assembled. Haifa century has since
passed away, during which our country has in
creased in wealth, population, and power, be
yond all former precedent. Mr. Thomas still
lives to witness the prosperity of the country,
and yesterday joined itt the celebration of Inde
pendence iu the same house lrom which he read
the Declaration fifty years ago.— Worcester Spy
