TUB BE.X0BT Or THE LATE IJtWCATED SrVATOR TOO! OK t URMONT. Mr. roland. Mr. rrosident, I offer the following resolution; ifarotW. lhat the Beerotarr of the Senate be dlrectad to Inform tbo Hooao of llanreieotBtlraa that tbe Senate baring llataned to ealogleo npoa thoeharaoter aad pnbllo services of lion. Solomoa Foot, a Booator from tbo Bute of Vormoot lately dMeaaed, out of reaped to his memory bars voted to adjourn Mr. President, two weeks am this dav. it was my painful duty to announce to tho Sen ate the death of my distinguished and be loved colleague, Hon. Solomon Foot. The little time that elapsed between his decease and tho funeral lercUionics hero, and the ab sence of one, of mv coueairucs of tho House, who Was Mr. Foot a immediate representa tion, wero deemed sufficient reasons for post poning me customary onuuary iriuuics 10 some future day. In accordance With the notice then given, I now ask that tho Senate for a short timo lay asido its ordinary busi ness, and allow mo and othcrB tho melancholy satisfaction of expressing our appreciation of the) character, services, and virtues of our departed associate and friend Tho lost oc casion of this kind, in this Chamber, was early in tho present session, in memory of j my lamented prcuccessor, juugo uoimmer. No one of us will ever forect tho eloquent and loving Words of Mr. Foot on that occa sion in dwelling upon the memory of his lone time friend and colleague. As we looked at his robust and majestio form, and listened to his deep, rich volco, and solemn weighty words, how little wo thought that in so short a tune he, too, would havo becomo only an obicct of meinorv. and a subiect of culoirv. Who next In this body of representathes of oiaica snail uo caueu irom una uigu pmcu iu tho unseen world! No one of us can tell. How solemnly aro wo reminded that death comes as a tluef In tho night, and how wisely are we cautioned, "be o also read)." Mr. Foot was born m Cornwall, Addison county.Virmont, on the 10th day of Noem bcr, 1602. I have not been ablo to learn anvtlunir In relation to his early life, but I Infer that his family condition was such as to make all attainment anu advancement in life dencud unon his own efforts and labors I infer thU from the fact that he graduated from Middlcburg College about 1828 or 1827. and somewhat later in life than is usual with young men whero tho means of educa tion are provided by others. After his grad uation no spent some timo in icacnmg, anu at tho saino timo Btudying law. After his admission to the bar ha commenced practice In tho town of Rutland. Vermont, and that continued to bo his place of residence up to tno timo oi ins ueain Ho was elected a Rcprescntatlt o from tho town of Rutland to tho Vermont House of Renrcscntat ves n 1833. 18J0. 1837 and 1838, and again In the year 1817, and during tho last thrco of thoso jcara was Speaker of me House lie was a member or tno state constitutional convention, in 18J6, which raauo the important alteration in our State constitution of exchanging tho old Lcgisla- lativo Council for a Stato Senate. Ho also held the office of prosecuting attorney for Rutland countv from 1836 to 1812 In 1612 Mr. Foot wa3 elected to tho lower House of Congress, and was re-elected in 1811, but doclined further election. In I860 ho was elected to the Senato of tho United States, re-elected in 1856. and ajrain in 18C2. and at the timo of his death was the oldest member In continuous service in this bodr. Mr. Foot very soon attained a highly re spectable position as a lawyer. Ho was care ful and attentive to tho interests of his cli ents, and always made full and elaborate preparation for tlio trial of his causes. If DjltUl AalTHlaau.tl .laOl Utai akUn ItalwHIlaaaU U tka tMvWtaakl r PuUllha.! Tfrn Is life had becn!fvnlit In Ma Mmflln,'l. io would doubtless hare atlillteti lilgh rank M a lawyer. l!ut his attention wu early turned to political life, and lib ptrofesstonal career Was too broken nd ucsuttory to en able him to attain the highest distinction in It. His Ability and character were, far better suited to a public and popular, rather than jucro proicssionai nit. no nail oecn but a very few years at tho btr, and a resident ft tho town of Kntland, when ho was chosen o ropnfccntahat town in the State ICgisla s quite rare at mat day lint to ih waa chosen to represent one of and most imnortant towns in tha d which cdntalnetl matiV leadbur tiublie men. liut ho had already attained a lilffh noiition as an able and normlar trxtakelr upon public and political Questions, Hill his career In the State Legislature added to this a reputation as a wiso and careful legislator. It was as Speaker of then Vermont House of Representatives that ha Ursti displayed that almost wonderful aptitude aiulapaeity as tho presiding officer of a deliberate as sembly, which afterward made liila so cele brated throughout the nation, when ho be came the Presiding Officer of tho fenate of the United States, as, perhaps, the ucst pro- siuuig omccr in ino wnoie country, lie seemed almost to havo been made for the position, ills nne, majestic perron, his dig nified deportment, ha full and rich voice, hit easy and graceful manner, all conspired lb inako him a most useful and accentable prsiuNt over any assembly. Ills knowl- very thorough, but not rnoro so, probably, than many others His auncrtbrity ill this respect appeared preserved onlw 1 born In him. Ills look tho slurhtest word allai ed contusion. Hie tame grace of person and dignity of mahner attended him always and eerj where, and was equally pleasing and utgrui'auic iu I'tivjMU auuiuiy ur uu uiv crcuaie floor) it had nothing of haughtiness or arro gance, but was kindly and benignant. It had doubtless much to do with tho almost universal personal lovo and reverence felt for turn by all who knew lum. Mr. Foot was not a man of great origi nality. I ara not aware of nhy great public measure that ho originated. I ID did not take much part in tho general debates in the Senate Upon general subjects but be was always in nis scat, carciui anu waicmui oi afl measures, with excellent tudo-ment of what was for tho public Interest. A mclnber of tbo present Cabinet who served ten years with him in tho Senate, said to ine, during Mr. Foot's sickness, that lie net cr knew d mart whose votes b ere Always more consistently right Utah bis When he did speak in the Senate, it was generally with carcfnl prepara tion, anu men no spoKe wisely anu wen, anu was listened to with rrreat attention ntid re spect. Ho was alwajs faithful and prompt in his attendance oil his committees, ill inak ing his reports, and in the performance of every public duty, lint it was especially in his dut to bis Slate, and tho peoplo ot his SUtt, tnat his watchfulness, energy and un tiring efforts were mainly directed No In terest of Vermont was allowed to suffer, or remain unguarded, either in Congress, or In any Department of tho General Go eminent And so with every cititen of tho State having right or claim, of pfober request, upon an) Department of tho Oovernmcntj Mr. Toot mado It his own special duty to sco it righted. He loved and honored Vermont, ho was proud that it was tho place of his birth. More than once since I became his collcaguo he has mentioned the fact to me, that nccr be fore was Vermont represented In tho Senate by two of her sons, born oh her own Soil, and he seemed to dwell on the Idea with great satisfaction. During his illness, and after he becarne satisfied he should not re cover, no loved to Speak of being carried back to his native State; of being buried un der the shadoW of her grand mountains and green hills, and within sound of her water falls, and that his grate would bo among his own people, whom ho loved, and who loved him so well. Mr. Foot's real greatness and the canso of his universal popularity, i navo not yet scanned. Sorno men aro called great from a. smglo great action, others by a few great deeds. Mr. Foot Was a great man by reason of his great heart: not a smglo act. or several acts of great statesmanship, but a lifetime of goou anu generous anu unscinsn aceus, was what mode him great and gavo him such a hold upon the hearts of his own State, and otners wno Knew nun. His mental faculties were of a high order: his acquirements wero very respectable im deed, his judgment was excellent; be had ex traordinary gifts of person and manners, but many men possessing all tlicso in equal de gree wouia never nave auainou a uine oi the honor and respect ho did It was his generous warmhearted lovo and sympathy for his fellow s, and his exhibition of it to them and for them at all times, that Induced their lovo and respect for hira. You saw with me the general exhibition of sorrow for his death here where he had been so long, and was so well know n and so highly respected, but it was ray fortune to bo ono of J our committco to attend his remains to ills old homo, and among tho neighbors and associates of his daily homo life. Had you witnessed the deep gloom and sadneBS that hung over that wholo community, the tears that tilled so inanv eves as we fulfilled our melancholy duty, ou might well hat o exclaimed. "Do- hold how they lot cd him." Living in an other part of the Stato from Mr. Foot, and our pursuits for raanv vcars having been so different, I had never much personal inti macy with him until the commencement of tno present scsBion, wnen i Dccame nis col league From that timo till his death we lived In tho eamo house, and till his sickness, at the samo table. I soon saw why all loved and respected him, and shared their senti ments in tho fullest manner 1 ho Infinite pains he took to make my po sition agreeable; to make mo acquainted with the course, and details of business in the Senato ; tho proper officers and depart ments for everything; in short, tho wholo routlno of congressional drudgery, which It is so Important for every man to know, and still etery man is expected to find out for himself ; was what I did not expect from him and probably should hato received from no other man Rut with bis nature he eould hardly havo avoided doing It. Ihe circumstances of his sickness and death wero suck JJiat general publicity has uvin given tu variuui luurrviuwa uuuuanuigo between him and valued friends, solemn aqd affecting In their character and Interest. I took mv tost leave of him on that same af ternoon boforo his death I could not now attempt to desenbo it, but I shall never fur get bis affectionate language or bis solemn benediction at our parting. I mourn his loss in common with all who knew him ; but with all who believe In the heaven hereafter, I doubt not that our hws Is bis infinite gain His tiiumphant Christian neatn was a tilting emi lor so loving anu tuo- ful a life, Will lr.X W. llr,i,w Hat -,'tik H. ..i nitr death may bo liko bis. - 8drely. Indeed, has lnV natfve Stato liecn stricken; her ln most distinguished sons, long her joint rep resentatives in tnis oouy, wnera tney rcpre- and credit I both taken away by death, and so near cacn otner tnat ine stirring enect of the nrst blow bad baruiy passed when tho other came. Ood grant that those who have survived and succeeded them may bo enabled In some degreo to cmnlato their virtues and usefulness to tho Stato and peoplo thus bo. rcavwt Mr. Johnson. Mr. President. I rise brieftt' to participate in pa) ing honor to the memory of our departed friend Mill associate. Such tributes to Nirtues, public and private, as he possessed, cannot fail to benefit the living as woll as honor tbo dead. They show those who aro commencing life how it is, Mid ti hat it Is to earn a name that Wilt live after' death, and be to family and friends a Jtr(cc!css heritage. Theyfllow lliu Value of honest fame, a famd which survives death and becomes brighter as time tolls on.

Is sufficient to estab lish its divihe Origin. Ho who, with evident sincerity, and whilst his mind was as perfect as ever, nearly it the moment of dissolution, could say that ho felt ' borne up, as on an gels' Wings," and in tbe very moment pre ceding it, with hands and eyes uplifted could exclaim, "I soe It, I lee It, the gates arc wide open, beautiful, beautiful," and then die, is a witness to our faith that the statistics of skep ticism'can never counteract. Tho memory of such a man should not be lost. It is not enough that it may surt ivc in the recollection of his family and friends l It should live in the records of tho body to v inch ho was 10 long attached and which he so faith fully served and honored. Tho Senate of the United States should perpctuato tho evidence that Solomon Foot wiee for vrara nnn hf Ha most honored members, Fesjie'cled, admired. lotca dj- ovcry associate lor tus ratmrulncss, his pattiotlsln, his endearing social qualities, and revered for his Christian Ucalrt. This willbo done oVtho hroeeeliiup of this day. Mr, Toot's public career is now so wc known that it would bo idle in mo to attempt its, detail. This has been done by his col league. Seldom engaging in debate, we ct knew, in advance, tho result to which his sound Judgment, over tms a) ed by passion or prejudice, ttould lead him. Though in a large and comprehensive iiihso a part) man, his principles were adopted bccaiiso thev. in his estimation, led to gincral and not partial kuuu. iu rccuuimi lec'uug ever consciously influenced him. His mind and his heart em braced his whole country, and he loved even his native Vermont, to which ho was so strong ly attached, tho moro becaiuo it was a part of that great whole. His reading, his famil iarity with tho history of his country, his ex perience, bad continced him that. notional prosperity and rtnown, as well as the happi ness of tho several States, could only be at tained through tho Union established by our fathers, and ho ncter, therefore, tolerated thoso who threatened its dissolution, or fool Iscly attempted, with a view to depreciate it, to calculate its value. In heart and In mind a Unionist, ho entered tcalously into all the measures calculated to terminate our recent civil strife) and although in somo respects, 1 believe, not a very sangnino man, ho never doubted a successful result. It was encour aging to bear him speak on the subject. He had studied our institutions, had becomo ex tensively acquainted with our people, and knew how deep was their attachment to the General Government; and with this knowl edge ho was satisfied that the first wero ade quate to meet tho emergency if their powers were exerted, and that tho latter would peril all to havo them everted, lie lived, thank God, lo see Ilia prediction Verified When ho left lis he knew that the strife Was over, the Union everywhere reinstated In all Its rightful authority, and nothing remained to bo done but by projier efforts to calm tbe agita tion inseparable from such a contest ami win Us all back into our ancient brotherhood Mr. 1 resident, although we shall no more tee our late brother in this Chamber, which of us will ever forget his manly presence, his uniform dignity, his cter constant watchful ness ot cr tho proper decorum of tho body, his unbending firmness, his uniform courtesy as its frequent presiding officer; and, aboto all, which of us who listened to the touching story of his last days on earth, as recently told us by tho retcrend clergyman who was his pastor in this city, but will have cause to rejoico if he can livo and die as llvcdand died Solomon Foot d)ing; lo usa his own truthful words In his eulogy on his former colleague, Jacob Collamcr, so affectionately delivered in this Chamber on the llth of He ccmber last, and so strikingly applicable to himself, "In tho full cxerciso of his Intellect ual faculties, with an abiding and unslmkin faith in tho Christian religion, and in the cherished hope of a blissful iminoriulll.."

To-day all that was mortal of our friend and brother reposes In a distant grave, among thoso by whom ho was loved and trusted and honored, a grave watered by many tears and venerated for Its sacred dust, while tho true and noble spirit which onco animated that clay haa ascended to give an account of Its mission upon earth. and to enjoy, as wo may well believe, tho re ward ot a well spent n:e. An event like this, touching in its signifi cance, becomes tho more startling when fol lowing closely upon another scarcely less Iropressit e In a single session of the Sen ate, within a few short months, we hear the announcement that death has laid his icy fingers upon both Senators from one of the States of tills Union, each a man of eminent mark In this bod), and at a period when tho In thla Pa par by Aatharllr TUB PnCttDISKf . loss of their wisdom, their experience, their patriotism, their unswerving integrity, and unselfish devotion to their country s good, is most severely felt. That State has many noble and most worthy sons anions' whom it may choose for places of trust and honor, uui no oiaio can give at onco to tne public councils tho assurance, whirh limn nnlv pnn bestow, of tliat fitness which experience and trial alono eon prove and aprliro When, Mr. President, a man, however eminent in other pursuits, and whatever ciauus no mac navn tn t,ni,i nnfi,i, a becomes a member of this body, has he much to learn and much to endure, I.ittlo docs ho know What lie will hat e to chcountcr. lie may be well read in public affairs, but he is unaware of the difficulties which must attend and embarrass every effort to what he may Know ataiiauic and useful. lie may be up right in purpose and strong In the belief in his oWn,integrity,but ho cannot even dream of the ordeal to which he cannot fail to bo exposed; of how much courago ho must pus- res in resist tne temptations wiitcn uauy beset him ; of that enitlvc shrinking from undeserved censure which ho must learn to control of the dVCMccurnng contest be tween a natural desire for public approba tion and sense of public duty; of the load of Injustico ho must bo content to bear, even from thoso tho should be his friends ; the imputations on hu motitcs, tho sneers and sarcasms of Ignoranco and malico, all the manifold injuries which partisan or private malignity, disappointed of its object, may shower upon Ids unprotected hcud. All this, if ho would retain his integrity, ho must learn to bear Unmoved, and walk stead' ily onward In the path of public duty, sustained only by tho reflection that time may do him justice, or, if not, that his indi vidual hopes and aspirations, and even his name among men, should be of little account to him when weighed in the balance against the welfare of a people, of whose destiny he is a constituted guardian and defender. To such an ordeal, Mr. President, our la mented ffiehd was subjected for 14 years at a most tr) ing period, and admirably did ho bear tho trial. Coming to the Senato when two antagonistic forces had proclauncd what soon protcd to bo a hollow truce, ho was a witness to tne ouiurcaic wiiicli marKcu its termination, ulid was a party to tbo struggle which, after several) cars, eventuated In civil war. Trom the first moment his courso Was clearly dclinc'l. Representing a peoplo of strong convictions, and himself a child of free Institutions, lie could not 'but become their mammon. Assuming no leadership, content to follow, so long as the measures proposed commended themselves to his judgment and bis conscience, his firm and rigorous support wasalwa)s to bo relied on as a certainty. He wns not one to make capital for himself at tho expense of hiscotintr) or of those with wnom no acicei ii worK was to nc uonc, no was ready to do it. If a tnuig moment tame, it found him prepared Whatetcr of dire portents might shoot across the political sky, with unshrinking heart ho stood erect to meet. ami. II possible, to avert, toe tnrcat- encd culainity. Dccpiy lamenting the terri ble issue, sad and Bomctimes almost despair ing us he witnessed Its sanguinary results, there was no moment of doubt, not even of hesitation, with him. Let us rejoico and be thankful that ho lited to see the dawn of a brighter day. Throutrh all this lonir period of fourtien )ears, chequered, as they were, with great events, the course of ordinary legislation has required a iiign degree oi intellectual power. In a country like ours, where progress is so rapid, danger so instantaneous, tho human mind so uetive. new fields of effort so broad and diversified, legislation must accommo date itbcir to the ncccsssiucs, and oiien to the impulse, of tho hour. It is impossible here to tratel steadily In ancient wa)s ine legislator who stands still will not meet the reniurcmcnts of our day. Of such, our friend was not one. Wilh on interest broud and powerful in its grusp, and enlarged b) study and reflection, limited by no narrow or sectional vicwb, just and liberal in spirit, looking upon his country as a whole lot ing it in ull lis parts, nothing that could aid in its development, or advance its best interests, failed tb receive his sjrmpatby and support. And seldom was his deliberate judgment at fault To say that ho might not someitmes nato erreu, woum tie iu proclaim him more than nuraan. 1 o ussert tnat no w us never wilfully wrong, or erred where wise and good men might well differ, is doing lum no more than justice. Tho crowning beaut) of his public life, more than all else, was that whatetcr he did, lion cter he might act, no spot was left upon tho perfect enamel of his character as a legislator. Malico could not stain its whiteness In all that be did there was that transparent truthfulness which at tracts and secures the confidence of friends, and compels tho respect, and etcn tho ad miration, of ndtcrsunes enemies, ho had nohOt A stranger, Mr President, upon entering tlus Chumber, and easting bis C)cs around upon the Senate, eould not but bo struck with tho Imposing presence of oitr departed friend and associate, and attractid by the raro union of mildncBs and dignity in his ex pressive featuris.

The explanation, however, is simple. arid may be found in his remarkable want of seir-apprcclatlon. Modest to a fault, be ndter did anything like justice to his own powers. To others, and especially to those wto possessed his confidence and affection, hcj did moro than justice being too ready, aljva) s, to receive and defer to the opinions oflotncrs in no respect superior to himself Hence It followed that he seldom addressed the Senate upon subjects which occasioned general debate. Upon those raro occasions when his voice was heard, the questions were Bitch for the most part, as, in his opinion, hau not received tho attention their import ance deserved We all know tho respect with which he was invariably listened to, arid the light shed by his intellect and lua Industry upon whatever subject he choso to touch. His politcal friends are well aware how tlds want of self assertion In merely personal matters was exhibited in all high relations to, and intercourse with, them Though long tla.' oldest member of tho Senate in consecu tive service, he invariably avoided conspicu ous place. While others might seek for and claim desirable positions upon leading com mittees, ns due to their States, if not to themselves, he was satisfied with anything tliat was assigned to bun, however derogatory it'raight seem to his ago and standing pre ferring and urging the claims of others, and desiring only that all should bo satisfied Often hat e 1 known him tn insist that his n imc should be stricken from an important committee, in order to replace it with Ihe n nne of a friend or associate, to whom he tl ought the distinction would bo grateful 1 hull moro than any other was assigned tl c unenviable task of arranging the60 com ii ittocs, not only becauso all confided in his s nso of justice, but liecausc of his disinter e ted magnanimity. I have often thought t at such generous abnegation of self should p )t havo been permitted. I know that on s vcral occasions it was peremptorily ot cr r tied. Tliat mull n Senator, so useful, so modest, so unassuming, so courteous, bo kind, of a iV. pertinent so unexceptionable, should have won the good will of all his associates, and tiio lot c of muny, and that his loss should oc tillion iinltcrsal sorrow, may well bo sup posed 'lliose, however, who saw and marked the crowds assembled to witness the last sad ceremonies, and who noted tho many weep ing ejes which looked upon Ids collin, would natural!) be ltd to consider that nothing in the routino of his public career could account for a grief so deep, uud so general. Men are not apt to bo mourned with tears for public services, or even on account of public or pri vate virtue. Great intellectual pre-eminence may excite admiration, but when the light goes out pts absenco occasions but a weak snd transient emotion Gifts and qualities like these ' como not near tho heart." The Secret of all that genuine and unaffected sor row for tho friend we have lost his in the feeling of all who came within his sphere, that his was u tmo and noble and lovmg na ture. Impulsive and ardent in temperament, he was kind, generous and forgiving.
