The f.4p pv9 1 l w e livered by. M,4 i.t L $, Be.~It ,, the presonlW vy, en. Jackstacai No , Fdr t bqato grdss fkom the Ahmlly ofGo a. Armstrong) deceased. Mr. Preside4tt:--I mest:' tle' indal4 once of the BSenaep for .~tin : at t| usual business ma.y.y'. ld gd ye me an opportunity to 4iphaig a~e ,tist wl ich has been com ittDp - `trtstt I had not the hearttb declline, b It ivhih' knew I had not the po.er to.tlflas suach a mis sion shouldle'fL . jdE~ ALF hand the sword of en-eraJackson, which he wore in all his etpeditions, while.in the military eu~ce of th6 csunify, and whlok was his faithful companio inh his last and crowning victory, when New Orleans was saved i from the grasp of a rapacious and powerful enemy, and bur nation from the disgrace and diaster which defeat woulfi have brought in itstrain. When the hand of death was apon him General Jackaor presented this sword to his friend, the late General Armstrong, as a testimonial of his, high appreciation of the services, worthl ant courage of that most estimable citizen' aund distinguished soldier, whose desperate valor, on one oocation, stayed the tide of indian success, and saved the army from destruction. 'The ftmily of that lamented depository, now that death has released him from the guardianship of this treasure of patriotipm, are desirous it should be surren dered to the custody of the national legis. lature, believing that to be the proper dis position of a memorial, which, in all time to come, will.,be a cherishcd one for the American people. To carry that purpose into effect, I now offer it in their namte to Congress. Mr. President, this is no doubtful relic, whose identity depends upon uncertain tra dition, and which.owes its interest to an impulsive imagination; Its authenticity is e.tablishcd beyond controversy by the par p.rs which accompany it, and it derives its v.luc as well from our knowledge of its history, as from its association with the great captain, whose days of toll and nights of trouble it shared and witnessed, and who never drew it from the scabbard but to defend the honor and the interests of his 'rhis is nether the time nor the phlace to puoztray those great traits of character : which gave to General Jackson the ascen doney that no man ever denied who ap proached him, and that wonderful influence' with his coutrylmen which marked almost ' his whole course from his entrance upon a public career till the grave closed upon his r life and his labor-, and left him to that I qluality which the mighty and the lowly munst find at last. Still, from my personal and official relations with him, and, I trust, I may add, from his friendship towards me, of which I had many proofs, I cannot with hold the acknowledgement of the impres-, sion which his high qualitiesmade upon mc, and which become nmore lasting and pro Ibund as time is doing its work of separa tion from the days of my intercousse with him. i) 1 have.been no careless observer of the imen of my time, who, controlled by events, i or controlling them, have stood promigent atmong them, and will occupy distinguished positions in the annals of the age: and cir cumstances have attended my opportunities of examination to the old wosld as well as to tile new. But I .ny, and with a deep c:nviction of its truth. that I never have been brought into contact with a tman who possessed more native sagarity. more pro flltmity of intellect, higher powers of oh servation, or greater probity of purpose, more ardor of patriotisin, nor more tirntl noss of resolution after he had surveyed his position and occupied it, than tile lamented niubjet of this feeble tribute, not to hitml, but to truth. And I will add, that during the progress of determination upon impor tant ,-uijects, he was sometimes slow and generally cautious and inquiring, and he has more than once told me, anxious and uneasy, not seldom passing the night with out sleep, but lie was calm in his mind and inllexiblt in his will, when reflection had given,. place to decision. The prevailing opinion that he was rash and hasty in -his conclusions is founded upon an erroneous impression of his thoughts and action upon a want of discrimination between his conduct before and after his judgment had lonounneed upon his course. This Is not the first offering of a similar nature which has been laid upon the'altar of our country, with the sanction of the le gislativo department of the government. uSome years since, another precious relic was dl'posited here, the sword of him, who, in lil[, was first in the affections of his coun trymen, and in death, is now first in their in-mory. I neod not name his name. It is written in characters of living light on every heart and springs instirnctiely on ,,very tongue. His fame is committed to tiih:, his example to mankind, and himself, we maIy humbly hope, to the reward of the vi ihteuts. When centuries shall have pas set over us, bringing with them the muta ti i; that belong to the lapse of ages, and tnid our ,tcnry v shll yet be fllfiliing, or slall havetlfiltld,1ietmagnitfcent dentin7, for good, Idevoy hope, aidt ot fo' evil, pilgrims' from b ocean coasts, and from ar ip14nd seas, and from the vast regions which now separate, but ore long, by our wonderful progres, ,must unite them, will come up ,to the high places of our land, con seaatedl by days and deeds of world wide renown, and turning aside to the humble todb, dearer than this proud capitol, will meditate upon the eventful history of their coantry, and recall the example, while they bless the name of Washington. And on the same'oeeasion was presented the cane of Franklin, which was deposited in our national archives, with the sword of his friend and co-laborer in the great cause of human rights.. Truly apd beautifully has it been said that peace has its victories as war; and never was a nobler conquest won than that achieved by the American Apprentice, printer, author, statesman, am. bassadoi, philosopher, and better than all, model of common sense, over one of the pmost powerful elements in the economy of nature. Subduing its might to his own, and thus enabling man to answer the sub limo interrogatory addressed to Job, 'Cans't .tlou send lightnings that they may go and }say unto thee here we are?' Yes, they now come at our command, and say, here we are, ,ready to do your work. And it was our il. lustrious countrymen who first opened the way for this sulbjugation of the fire of Heav on to the human will. The staff that gui ded the steps of Franklin, and the sword that guarded the person of WasVington, may well occupy the same repository, un Ider the care of the nation they served, and loved, and honored. I The memorial of the first and greatest of our Chief Magistrates, and this memorial of his successor in the administration of the Government, and second only to him in the (gratitude and affections of the American tpeople, will lie side by side, united tokens of patriotic self-devotion, and of successfcl mihtary prowess, though they who bore them and gave them value by their services, are now tenants of distani and lonely graves, separated by mountains, and rivers, and valleys. And in ages now shut out from our vision by the far away future, when remote generations, heirs of our heri tage of freedom, but succeeding to it with. out the labors and privations of acquisition, shall guze, as they will gaze, upon these tes timonials of victories, time-worn, but time honored, they will be carried back by asso ciation to those heroes of early story, and will find their love of country strengthened and their pride in her institutions, and their 'confidence in her fate and fortunes increas ed by this powerful faculty of the mind, which triumphs over the distant and future as well as over the stern realities of the prc~ent, gathering around us the mighty meni and the mighty deeds which excite the admiration of mankind, and will ever coin mand their respect and gratitude. And thus will communion be held with the great leaders of our country, in war and in peace, who wore these swords in her service, and hallowed them by their patriotism, their valor and success. A resolutive was adopted, expressive of the thanks of Congress to the heirs of Gen. SArmstrong for the gift, and directing its preservation in the Department of State. I IIFSOow beautifully does James iladi son bequeath the following advice to his country. ADVICE TO MY COUNTRY.-AS this, if it ever see the lighl, will not do so till I Tam no more, it mlay be considered as issuing from the tomb, where truth alone can ,e respected, and the happiness of man alone consulted. It will be entitled therefore, to whatever weight may be derived from good intentions, and from the experience of a man who has served his country in various stations through a period of forty years: who espoused in his youth, and adhered through his life to the cause of liberty; and who has borne a part in most of the great transactions which will constituto epochs of its destiny. The advice nearest my heart and deepest in my convictions, is, that the Union of the States be cherished and perpetuated. Let the open enemy to it le regarded as a 'nl dora with her box opened: and the disguis ed one, as the serpent creeping, with its deadly wiles, into 1 uradise. A CHIILD's YSPATRiY.-A child's eyes! those clear wells of undefined thought what on earth cau be more beautiful ? Full of hope, love and curiosity, they meet your own. In prayer how earnest! In joy, how sparkling I In sympathy, how tender l The man who has never tried the companionship of a little child, has carelessly passed by one of the greatest pleasures of life, asone passes by a rare flower without plucking it or knowing its value. A child cannot L'n derstand you, you think; speak to it of the holy things of your religion; of your grief for the loss of a friend, of yaur love for some one you fear will not love in return. It will take, it is true, no measure or sound. ings of your thought--it will not judge how mucIh you should believe, whether your grief is rational in proportion to oour loss, but its whole soul will incline to yours, and engraft itself, as it were, on tlhh feeling which is your feeling for the hour.
