[communicated.] Mr. Snowden—The following verses, compos ed by a young man on his departure from the beloved land of his forefathers, having fallen in - to my hands, I wish to avail myself of my good fortune by preserving them, through the medi um of your valuable and interesting paper, as a lasting and affectionate monument of true, ge nuineVish talent, bursting asunder the shackles of tyranny, persecution, and oppression, and sighing forth from a heart no longer bleeding under the galling chains of British slavery the last sad farewell to his dear, devoted country. A compliance with this wish will infinitely oblige Your friend. FAREWELL TO ERIN. The last breeze from Erin Has pass’d o’er my brow; The gale of the ocean Is over me now. 1 leave thee, my country! Farewell! though thou art The life-pulse that stirs me, The veins of my heart. Erin mavourneen, farewell! I gaze where the bright scene * 'Falls back to the west, And tinges the blue clouds That hang o’er thy breast. The bark bears me from thee. To sail o’er the deep, While on thy green bosom I gaze,—and 1 weep. Erin mavourneen, farewell. I weep, for the spring-time Of beauty is o’er; And feel, while my dimm’d eye Is on thy lov’d shore, Like the mourner, when fixing His gaze on the dead, He bends o’er the cold earth Whose spirit is fled. Erin mavourneen, farewell! The tear-drooping willow Hangs over thy lyre, The chill blast hath broken Each soul-stirring wire: Through the gloom of thy darkness No day-beam appears, And thy sweet type, Ierne, Is gemm’d by thy tears. Erin mavourneen, farewell! Farewell! for no longer I gaze on thy shore; The mists are between us. 1 view thee no more! Perhaps to my country I breathe the last strain: Perhaps I may never Behold thee again. Erin mavourneen, farewell! Though in darkness, Ierne. Thy sun may have set. Thy emerald bosom I ne’er can forget: And while o’er the deep ocean The breeze bears my bark, My heart, like its billow, Heaves deeply and dark. Erin mavourneen, farewell! Alexandria, March 18, 1834. last ILLNESS OF MR. WIRT. From the Washington Correspondent of the Richmond Compiler. Washington, Feb. 26, 1S34. My dear Sir:—I promised, when we parted, to keep you informed of such occurrences as mi"ht furnish food for an amusing letter. Little the'n did did we anticipate the melancholy event which soon followed, and which will give to this letter so opposite a character—an event which must fill every American with regret, and every good man with sorrow, which hath so al tered the face of nature to the excellent and es timable family through whom our acquaintance commenced, and left a host of personal friends, and a whole community to mourn the loss of one whose friendship was honorable as it was delightful, and of whom any community or na tion might well be proud. When you left Washington, Mr. Wirt’s health was so much on the mend, that the apprehen sions long entertained had given place to the confident hope that many years of continued usefulness were reserved to him, and of conti nued happiness to his family, of whose home and happiness he was the life. It was a cruel hope, which illumined the heart for a moment, that the coming gloom might be the more ap palling. On the evening of Saturday, the 8th inst., he was in playful spirits, and sanguine of the suc cess of an argument which he was to make in Court on Monday. He felt better satisfied with his preparation, he said, than with any he had made for years before. On Sunday, he walked • to the Capitol to Church: it was a damp, chilly day, and the Representative^ Hall was crowd ed and warm. To go immediately from it into the cold, damp air, and walk slowly, as he did, a mile to his lodgings, might have been deemed imprudent, in one whose health was less preca rious than his then seemed. That nio’ht he complained of a slight indispo sition, and in the family worship of the evening prayed with an unusual fervor and seemingly a foreboding spirit, which he communicated not save to his God. But even this w as sufficient to excite vague apprehensions in a family always ready to note and to dwell upon whatsoever might seem to bode danger or safety to a friend so dear. On Monday he was confined to his room: no serious apprehensions were entertained, but a Physician was called in—it w as only a cold. On Tuesday he w as worse, but we feared not the result. He complained of stiffness of the muscles of the throat and swelling of the glands _milk poultices were applied to his face, but they gave not relief. On Wednesday he was much worse, so much as to excite alarm: on the evening of this day it was first discovered that the disease was Erysipelas—a “ new enemy” of which Mr. Wirt then expressed his fears. “ It was not the foe with which he had been so long accustomed to contend.” His constitution was too wreak, as the Physi cians apprehended, to stand the vigorous treat ment which would have been most efficient in destroying the disease. By Friday the alarm had become very serious—the door was crowd ed by anxious enquiring friends, and those who met in the street asked from each other the lat est intelligence. The affliction of the family was extreme, but there was still hope. On Sa turday his daughter and son-in-law arrived from Baltimore, and were shocked to find the case so much worse than their worst fears. Scarcely a glimmer of hope was left to us, but this feeble ray was most anxiously watched and cherished. When once shadowed by so deep a gloom, the least of the twinkling stars in the firmament is more precious to our sight, than is the sun itself in the noon tide of an un clouded day. Death, from the first day of his illness, had continued to approach with a steady pace and in a form more than usually hideous. The fine , countenance so bright with intellect, so beam ing with benevolence, was sadly altered by the disease partly, and partly by remedies so fruitlessly applied. The eyes had lost their speculation—the eloquent voice was hushed— the Divinity had departed from the temple, and its walls were defaced,but life still lingered, loath to abandon a habitation which had so long giv en to a thing in itself so little desirable and so worthless, beauty, purity and worth. The attending Physicians were Doctors Hunt and Hall: none could have been more anxious ly attentive; the latter staid by him every night of the last four or five. About noon on Monday, consciousness re turned; and he had power to speak a few words. Nature had made a last effort to permit him to take leave of his family and friends, to give them assurance that he died in Christian hope, and to join with them in prayer to his God. l ne tiev. lvir. rosr umuiaicu. ah ou iuuv>., I the prayer as related to his family and his own acceptance with heaven, he seemed heartily to join—but when a petition was offered that he might be restored to health, he audibly dissen ted “ no, no!” He had done and suffered enough in this contentious world, and was entitled to the release, and the transfer to a higher exist ence, which the just and good are authorized ; to expect It was now become manifest even to the most sanguine, that recovery was beyond the most remote probability. He was too shining a mark for death longer to miss—All that was left to us was to smooth his passage to the tomb—to moisten his dry parched lips and tongue, and perform such little offices of affection as might sooth his Iasi sufferings. During the last eighteen hours, he was tran quil as a child. Breathing and warmth were the only evidences of life—no motion, no pain, no consciousness—there lay the wreck of Wil liam Wirt. Three friends besides the Clergyman, atten ded his bed side during the night—his family too, worn as they were by nearly a week’s con stant watching, could not be induced to take re pose. Anguish and affection gave them strength to bear what would have exhausted the strong est men. It was a night long to b^ remembered —a night of silent, despairing sorrow, which conveys to the heart a language never to be forgot—a language which it is not for a pen like mine to transcribe. Tuesday morning breaks upon the scene still unaltered, save that life flickered more faintly and all pulse was gone. About 11 o’clock the breathings become gradually more distant and more feeble—are suspended or imperceptible— another breath—Is lie gone? So calm, so im perceptibly did he make his exit, that the pre cise moment of his departure could scarcely be marked—without a sigh or a struggle his bright spirit has departed from amongst us, from a state of existence which he adorned and honor ed here, to an existence higher, mightier and more glorious. Upon a highly excited mind, a slight incident will sometimes make a deep and lasting impres sion. As ihe last flickerings of life were failing — while his whole family, and the friends who had watched with them, were grouped around his bed, and in silent, deep attention to the aw ful scene, all held their breath, and their hearts and pulse stood still, a few soft, low notes from a pet Diru, wnicn nau oeiore oeen so sneni mai its presence in the room was unremarked, fell with startling sweetness on the ear. Only once before during his illness, had it been known to sing. On the preceeding day, at the conclusion of the last act ol devotion in which he ever joined, these same soft notes had mingled with the solemn ‘ Amen.’ Within an hour, the decease of their distin guished brother was announced in the Supreme Court. The feelings of the Court, said the ve nerable Chief Justice, would not permit them to proceed with business, and it immediately ad journed. The proceedings of the meeting ol the Bar which followed—the twice honored re solutions which were adopted, prefaced by the feeling and eloquent address, from one who, in the pride of intellect, can seldom he excited to give utterance to feeling—the adjournment of the two houses of Congress,to give their members an opportunity to escort his remains to their temporary resting place in the Congress vault —a proceeding heretofore unexampled—for which indeed there has rarely, perhaps never before occurred such an occasion; for who, among the good and great of the dead or the living, can compare in all things with Mr. Wirt? —the proceedings of the Supreme Court, on the day after the funeral, with the observations of the Chief Justice, who had such opportunity, with such capacity, to know and appreciate his worth—“ we too, gentlemen, have sustained a loss which it will be difficult, if not impossible, to repair—we too, have lost the estimable friend and powerful advocate”—all this you have seen noticed in the public papers; you have seen too the generous gush of deep, warm feeling, to j which the Ex-President gave vent on the occa ; sion, in the House of Representatives—“ Mr. 1 Wirt was never a member of this House, but if j his form in marble.or his portrait on canvass, were placed within the walls, a proper inscription would be that on the statue of Moliere in the French Academy—‘ Nothing was wanting to his glory, he was wanting to ours’.—If a mind stor ed with all the learning appropriate to the pro fession of the law, and decorated with all the elegance of classical literature; if a spirit im bued with all the sensibilities of a lofty patrio j tism, and chastened by the meditations of a pro j found philosophy—if a brilliant imagination, a discerning intellect, a sound judgment, and in, defatigable capacity and vigorous energy of ap plication, vivified with an ease and rapidity of i elocution, copious without redundance, and se lect without affectation—if all these united with a sportive vein of humor, and an inoffensive tern per, and an angelic purity of heart—if all these in their combination are qualities suitable for an Attorney General of the United States— in him they were all eminently combined”— ' “As the penetrating delineator of manners and character in the British Spy: as the biograph er of Patrick Henry, dedicated to the young men of your native commonwealth as the friend and delight of the social circle as the husband and father in the bosom of a happy, but now most afflicted family—in all these char acters, I have known, admired, and loved him and now witnessing from the very windows of this hall, the last act of piety and affection over his remains, I have felt as if this house could scarcely fulful its high and honorable duties to the country which he has served, without some slight, be it but transient, notice of his decease.” Such is the estimation of Mr. Wirt by John Quincy Adams, than whom none are less likely to be misled by favor or partiality; and who, as sociated as he had been with him for twelve years in the administrative brancli of the go vernment, and having since had leisure to re view impressions and correct opinions, if erro neous, possessed of all men the best means of forming a right estimate of his character. Such language as I have quoted, so just, so true and so eloquent, could only be the effusion of a heart brimming over with the warmest, kindest, and most generous affections. Such a mind, and such a heart alone could have so ful ly comprehended and feelingly delineated in this short sketch, the character and qualities of such a man. The funeral was conducted by the members of the Bar appointed by their distinguished asso ciates to solicit from his family permission to dispose of his remains and erect a monument to his memory. It was such a funeral as is due on ly to those who are ablest among the strong, and best among the good. The President of the United States, the Chief Justice (who so warm ly esteemed him as a friend and admired him as a man) and the distinguished men of all parties and professions—all who hold and who hope for the high places of the Republic—men who, on every other ground, are wide as the poles—all met here, to join in doing homage to the remains of an intellectual compeer, whose pure life and manly virtues rendered his existence an honor arid a benefit, and his death an irreparable loss .1 i .

For who, by unworthy means, through cunning and crook ed paths, ever gained so bright a name or at tained so high a destiny? Whilst the distinguish ed of our land are so deeply sensible of the sur passing beauty and brightness of such a charac ter as Mr. Wirt’s, can even the timid fear for the purity of our Councils, and the safety ot the Republic? I have forborn all attempt to portray the afflic tion and anguish of a family with whom his eve ry feeling was participated, by whom his kind ness of heart and excellence of character and clearness of judgment had been so long known, so deeply felt and so well appreciated, and over whom his death hath spread a gloom scarce less appalling than if the sun had been blotted from the heavens. So far as the heartfelt sympathy of friends, and of the community, and the ho nors so justly due which all have vied with each other in rendering to the illustrious deceased, can bring solace to such sorrow, they have in it in the amplest extent.—But “ Tho’ the mead of fame May for a moment sooth, it cannot slake The fever of vain longing, and the name Honored but assumes a stronger, bitterer claim.” [communicated.] The President, in his conversation with the de legates from the Philadelphia petitioners, told them that men doing business on borrowed capi tal, ought to break.
