His address, so clear and dispassionate on this momentous occasion, is worthy of a record in these pages, that the youth of our land may better understand the lofty spirit that characterized the men who were there assembled. Mr. McGehee said: Gentlemen, I feel very sensibly the honor you have done me in calling me to presid
