OBITUARY ADDRESSES DELlvEmm ON THE OCCASION OF THE DEATH Of ZACHARY TAYLOR, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. m THE gennte anb oust of rprrentatine, JULY 10, 1850 WITE THE FUNERAL SERBOI BY THE REV. S311TI PYIYE, D,D, HgCTOR OF El. JOENS CELlRCEt, WABHINGlOX, PREACHED IN THE PRESIDENTIAL MANSION, JULY 13, 1850. WASHINGTON PRINTED BY WILLIARI M. BELT. 1850. c. IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES, TUESDAY, JULY 9, 1850. Mr. BUTLER proceeded to address the Senate and, having spoken an hour, on a private communication from Mr. WEBSTER, he suspended his remarks. Mr. WEBSTER. Mr. PRESIDENT, I have permission from the honourable member from South Carolina to interrupt the progress of his speech, and to make a solemn and mournful suggestion to the Senate. The intelligence which, within the last few moments, has been received, indicates that a very great mis fortune is now immediately impending over the country. It is supposed by medical advisers and others that the President of the United States can not live many hours. This intimation comes in a shape so authentic, and through so many varieties of communication, and all tending to the same result, that I have thought it my duty to move the Senate to follow the example which has already been set in the other branch of the National Legis At half past eleven oclock to day, I called at the Presidents mansion to inquire after his health. I was informed that he had had a very bad night that he was exceedingly ill this morning, but that at that moment he was more easy and more com posed. I had hardly reached my seat in the Sen ate when it was announced to me that the had suddenly returned upon him with very alarm ing symptoms that appearances of congestion were obvious and that it was hardly possible his life would be prolonged through the day. With the permission, therefore, of my honour able friend from South Carolina, who, I am sure, like the rest of us, has those feelings on this occa sion which quite disqualify us for the performance of our duties, even in this very important crisis of public affairs, I venture to move the Senate that it do now adjourn. The Sena,te accordingly adjourned. I C 9 8 d HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. TUESDAY, JULY 9, 1850. At one oclock and seven minutes, P. M. Mr. BAYLY rose and stated, that he understood that authentic information had reached the Capitol that the condition of the President of the United States was so critical that he would probably not survive an hour. He therefore moved that the House adjourn and the question being put, It was decided in the affirmative. And the House accordingly adjourned until to morrow at eleven oclock, A. M. C 6 IN SENATE. WEDNESDAY, JULY 10,1850. The following communication, received by the Secretary of the Senate, was read Washington, July 10, 1850. To the Senate of the United States In consequence of the lamented death of Zachary Taylor, late President of the United States, I shall no longer occupy the chair of the Senate and I have thought that a formal communication to the Senate, to that effect, through your Secretary, might enable you the more promptly to proceed to the choice of a presiding officer. MILLARD PILLMORE. The following message was received from the President of the United States, by Mr. Fisher Washington, July 10, 1850. Peellow Citizens of the Senate and House of Representatives I have to perform the melancholy duty of announcing to you, that it has pleased Almighty God to remove from this life ZACHARY TAYLOR, late President of the United States. He deceased last evening at the hour of half past ten oclock, in the midst of his family and surrounded by affectionate friends, calmly and in the full possession of all his faculties. Among his words were these, which he uttered with emphatic distinction I have always done my duty I am ready to die my only regret is for the friends I leave behind me...
