May U plea your Honor i.
My brethren of the bar have devolved upon me
the duty of presenting to the Court the resolu
tions I have the honor to auhmlt.
lly brethren have endeavored to express In
tbesa reaolut one the profound retpoct they feel
tat your lamented aaaoclate, the lato Justice Ca
tron. Mr. Justice Catron presided In the Circuit
Court for the district In which I practiced.
1 knew him as a J udge from my earliest years.
My acquaintance continually eubaneed the rs
ipect asd admiration with which, from the very
Jnit. I regarded blm.
With the advantage of only limited educational
training, he rose easily and pleasantly to the
high position he Illustrated.
Poihesslog a vigorous mind, diligent hablu,
arnestand honeat purposes, aad almple, uaaf
factad manners, hie life was one of dignity and
Ills loyalty, not the result of location, asso
ciation, policy, or sentimentality but of simple,
.native Integrity, allied to native good sense ana
firmness, was a sheet-anchor to tbe States of
Tsnneasee and Kentucky.
The memory of such a character and each a
life go far to soften the sorrow we feel for the
loss the country has sustained
The grave has closed over his mortal remains,
but 1 am sure It cannot shut out from your
chamber, so long tha sceue of bis labors, tbe
awest memory of his character, as it caanot Ue
rlve hla country of the good he did, or man
lud of bla bright example
i now present to your Honors these resolu
tions, which, after they shall have been read, I
respectfully move msy La entered on tbe min

strong, practical good sense, by firmness of will
and straightforward honesty of purpose. Ever
frank and earnest la the exprerston of his opin

arbitrarily on others. The candor and patience
with which he listened to argumentfoaad fitting
counterparts in the Impartiality and equity or
his Judgments, These Jnderuenta remain, and
are his pest monument. While the records of
this court endnre, they will recall the memory
of tha just and fearless magistrate who pro
nounced them, and will be esteemed as valuable
contributions to the Jurisprudence ofhlecoun
trr. They will command from the nrofeealoa
the confidence and respect which waa felt for tbe
