If, in the discharge of my duties as the presiding officer of this body, I have acquitted myself to your satisfaction, the most ardent wish of my heart has been gratified. Our session has been a long one—much longer than we could have anticipated when we first assembled; yet when we look upon the mass of business which has been before us for our action, we can justly say that this has been a busy—very busy—session. We are now about to return to our families, and to our constituents, and in all probability we shall all never again meet this side the grave, That the kindly feelings engendered, and the friendships formed, during our official intercourse may be as lasting as they are gratifying, is the heartfelt prayer of him who now addresses you. With this expression of gratitude, gentlemen, 1 bid you all farewell.

On motion of Mr. Chamberlain,

The House adjourned sine die.
