One account that 1 have seen states that he will have a Public funeral and that the two sons of Louis Philippe will be ordered to attend As chief that contest which secured Freedom and Independence to our country.

He bad not time to prepare a Resolution fitting such an Occam in it but be presumed it would be obvious to every person that it was a occurrence peculiarly becoming the co Gresa of their. States to adopt some suitable Meas Urf to express the deep sense they enter taped of the misfortune involved in the decease of one of the most eminent benefactors of the age and of Mankind. It occur aed to him that such a duty should be discharged in a manner suitable at once to the dignity of the representatives of the people and of this Union and to the merits of him to whose memory this tribute should be paid. This be supposed would Tho form of a joint Resolution of the two houses of Congress. He would now therefore submit a motion that a committee should be appointed to consider in what manner a tribute of affection and respect May be Shewn by the Congress of the u. States expressive of the sen Mility of the nation on the event of the decease and their veneration Lor the memory of the illustrious general la Fayette.

He came in his youth to defend our country lie came in the Mil airily of his age to witness her growth in All the elements of Prosperity Aud while witnessing these he received those testimonials of a Rioual gratitude which proved How Strong was his hold upon Tho affections of the a Merican people. One melancholy duty remains to be performed. Tho last major general of the revolutionary army has died. Himself a Young and Humble Participator in the Strug Glucs of that period the president feels called on., As Well by pc Rosenal As Public con a a durations to direct the appropriate Hon ors be paid to the memory of this Dis Lin go nihed Patriot and Soldier.
