Mr. Ellis from the county of Brown, arose and announced to the House the death of his colleague, the Hon. CHARLES C. P. ARNDT, in the words following:

“ Mr. Speaker,-1 rise under circumstances the most painful. The melancholy task devolves on me of announcing to the House the death of one of the delegates of my district in the other branch of the Assembly—the Hon. CHARLES COATESWORTH PINCKNEY ARNDT. Yesterday he was in the full vigor of health and manhood, as fondly as any of us, Mr. Speaker, looking forward to years of happiness and honor. To day he is no more! At noon he died almost instantly on the floor of the Council Chamber. How emphaticaily is it to be said « his sun went down at noon ! " Indeed he left us in the morning of life, being but 29 years of age.

“If it be painful to me Mr. Speaker, to give the House intelligence of this distressing calamity, it is some relief to overburthened feelings to be able to bear unqualified testimony to his irreproachable character and high moral worth. Acquainted with him intimately from his boyhood, I can well testify to the amiable sentiments of his heart, and the brilliant qualities of his mind. As a son, a brother, a husband and a father, he was equally the pride of his relatives, and the admiration of his friends. As a neighbor, a citizen, and a public servant, he ranked first among his fellows. Think you then, Mr. Speaker, what a void is thus, in the twinkling of an eye, made alike in his family circle, in the society of his neighborhood, and in the delegation to this Assembly from the county of Brown. But why should I enlarge? All knew him, and to know, was to love and admire.”

And thereupon Mr. Darling offered the following resolutions: which were unanimously passed.

Resolved, by this House, that entertaining the highest sense of the worth of the deceased, and regretting deeply his loss, not only to his family and the constituency he represented, but particularly to this Legislative Assembly, the members of this body do mourn the untimely death of the Hon. Charles C. P. Arndt, late a member of the Council from the county of Brown, and that we wear the usual badge of mourning for thirty days.

Resolved, That we deeply sympathize with his bereaved family and friends in their affliction, and that the messenger of this House convey our regrets to the surviving partner and family of the deceased.

On motion of Mr. Parkison, The rules of the House prescribing the daily order of business were suspended this day.

The Secretary of the Council being introduced, delivered the following message from that body:

“Mr. Speaker,—I am directed to inform the House of Representatives of the death of the Hon. Charles C. P.
