The king expressions of he Senate, will always be appreciated as they ought; they will afford a constant and fond recollection. This day will produce a separation of gentlemen long associated in the great duties of the Senate. The commands of the constitution return each one into the private walks of life.

The object of legislative assemblies is the production of the centinel constantly upon the watch for the general welfare; how far this body has stood close to this great duty, is for posterity to determine; I have only one wish it is this, that should nay thing have been done, which by any possibility, may operate unfriendly to the rights of the country, that a kind of providence may overrule and arrest its progress. And now gentlemen, when we come to be separated, perhaps, forever, I pray you to accept the liveliest sensibilities of my heart, that every one of you may be borne to the bosom of your families, and your country be loaded with the riches blessing of an ever protecting providence.

On motion, the Senate adjourned sine die.

JOHN D. TERRELL,

President of the Senate.
