the great lawyer in some of the English papers, and from time to time they mentioned his declining health. I felt sad when I heard of his death in Paris, May 6, 1884, in the 72d year of his age. He was one of the gifted sons of the South when the Southland held the ruling power of intellect in the national councils—the peer of any man then on the floor of the United States Senate. The highest law courts of the country were enlightened by his great legal lore, his brilliant oratory, his profound arguments. In all that trying period of fierce struggle and deadly trials and heroic efforts, memorable months and years of glory and renown and final disaster, he was one of the noble and devoted men who gave his all to the glorious cause, even to the sad day of Appomattox, when— On Flodden's fatal field— Where shivered was fair Scotland's spear, And broken was her shield. He was a noble and gifted man, and, as Hon. John Goode said truly and well, the great Judah P. Benja

ed at the head of this expedition Captain J. B. Starr, commanding Company F, or Lafayette Light Infantry, a man of that stubborn, bulldog courage which is never exalted by victory or depressed by defeat. An officer of the Virginia Cavalry, Lieutenant Goode, I think, who was thoroughly acquainted with all the country of the Yorktown peninsula, was selected as guide through the woods and swamps to the scene of action. The men were ordered to equip themselves in light marching order—that is, wught along to carry away the captured guns, and they must have been harnessed in cotton or velvet and shod with straw, for they came on as noiselessly as the spectres of a dream. And now, under thick darkness, headed by our morning guide, Lieutenant Goode, we broke our way through bush and briar, splashed water, stole quickly across some open patch of ground, descended into a steep gully, then climbed a hill, and the redoubt was right in front of us. Just above me, not twenty feet away, I cou

wanting to abolish slavery, was exerting a secret power for the dissolution of the Union. Mr. Goode, of Bedford, desired to enter his protest against the views submitted by the gentleman from Roed, and put its heel on those measures which he alleged as reasons for not uniting with them. Mr. Goode, in proceeding, summed up the aggressions of abolitionism, and remarked, that on Monday next ageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And, by opposing, end them?" Mr. Goode, while enforcing this point of his argument in words of thrilling effect, was heartily applaudsted Mr. G. to suspend his remarks, and ordered the Sergeant-at-Arms to "clear the galleries." Mr. Goode appealed to the President to countermand the order, but he declined. In compliance with txandria, moved that the resolutions under consideration be laid on the table until morning, as Mr. Goode did not desire to proceed with his remarks this afternoon.

The object of the meeting being as quoted above from the hand-bills, an invitation was extended to "every true Southern man to be in attendance," at 8 o'clock, corner of Mayo and Franklin streets. An immense crowd of citizens assembled at the hour named, and led by a band of music, proceeded to the Exchange Hotel, where they were addressed in strong Southern State- rights speeches by John Goode, of Bedford, and Wm. F. Gordon, Jr., of Albemarle. Both gentlemen said, no matter what the Convention did, the people of Virginia would go with the South. Cries were made for Goggin, Wise, Morton, and Montague. An announcement was made that Gov. Wise was too much indisposed to speak, and a motion was carried to adjourn to the Spotswood House. On passing the American Hotel sundry groans were given for Mr. Moore. At the Spotswood House, Col. Dickinson, of Prince Edward, apologized for

Mr. Moore, of Rockbridge, submitted resolutions demanding from the North security against future wrongs; opposed to going into any Confederacy which had for its objects the re-opening of the African slave trade, free trade, or direct taxation; and proposing to go into Confederacy on the basis of the Crittenden resolutions, or their equivalent. Mr. Moore sustained his resolutions in an anti-secession speech, which was replied to by Mr. Goode, of Bedford. Before the last-named gentleman concluded, the President was compelled to give an order to clear the galleries, in consequence of a popular demonstration, and the further consideration of the resolutions was postponed to this morning. Mr. Burdett, of Taylor, in view of the interruption, introduced a resolution proposing an adjournment to Staunton, which was promptly laid on the table.
