Saunders, Grattan, Denoon, Stokes, Haskins, Wynne, Crutchfield, Glazebrook, Burr, Griffin, Hill, and Scott. Death of Ex-President Tyler. Mr. Grattan submitted the following preamble and resolutions, which were unanimously adopted: The Council of the city of Richmond have heard with deep regret of the death of Hon John Tyler.

The Council feel that, though he has fallen full of years and of honors, he has left us too soon, and the country may well lament the loss of his enlarged experience, his practical wisdom; and his unselfish patriotism, in this day of her trial.
