o read a brief sketch of the life of him whose portrait I entrust to your Honor's keeping. The Hon. James Mercer Garnett, of Elmwood, Essex county, Va., was born June 8th, 1770, the second child and oldest son of ten children. His father, Muscoe Garnett, of Essex county, was the son of James Garnett and Elizabeth Muscoe, his second wife, the daughter of Captain Salvator Muscoe, and was the only child of that marriage. He was the grandson of John Garnett, of Gloucester county, supposed to be first of the family that came from England to this country, although this is not certain, as the family records do not trace his ancestry further back. Muscoe Garnett, as his father before him, was a large landed proprietor, and built Elmwood before the Revolutionary War. During that war he was a member of the Committee of Safety for Essex County, which regulated the military affairs of the county. He, his father, and his son were vestrymen of Vawter's church, built in 1731. He married on

his pamphlet entitled: The Union, Past and Future; how it works and how to save it—by a citizen of Virginia, which created such wide-spread interest throughout the South, and was deemed worthy of review in the old Southern Quarterly Review, published in Charleston, S. C. This pamphlet is remembered to the present day, although the issues which it discussed are long since dead, for it was only very recently that a gentleman inquired where he could obtain a copy of it. Soon after 1850, Muscoe Garnett entered the Virginia Legislature, of which he was a member for several years, and on the death of Judge Bayley he was sent to the U. S. Congress from this district, and represented it until the war broke out. He was a member of the convention of 1861 which passed the ordinance of secession, and at the next election he was sent to the Confederate Congress, of which he continued a member until his death in January, 1864, although he had been defeated for re-election to the succeeding Congr

, Because he had a hundred eyes; But much more praise to him is due Who looks a hundred ways with two. The judge was so nonplussed and surprised by the offender's smartness, as well as audacity, that he let him off without fining him. He was the renowned, but unfortunate, Billy Pope, orator, poet and wit. I have, too, some recollection of the members of the bar of that period. Thomas Gresham and Wm. A. Wright lived in Tappahannock; John Gaines, two Upshaws (Horace and Edwin), and Muscoe Garnett, came from the country; Phil. Branham and Chinn came across the Rappahannock; Richard Baylor from the upper part of the county, and John L. Marye and Carter L. Stevenson from Fredericksburg. Mr. Marye had lived in Tappahannock, where he served in the store of Mr. Robert Weir. Whilst I was at school in Fredericksburg, I became well acquainted with him and Mr. Stevenson, and intimate with their sons. My last Essex county teacher, James M. Garnett, was a member of its bar.
