Mr. Speaker addressed the House of Representatives, as foilows:

GENTLEMEN: The time fixed by the action of the two Houses for me to perform my last duty, as presiding officer, having arrived, I beg to be indulged in returning to you my acknowledgments for the many favors I have received from you during the session that must now close. Whatever success may have attended my efforts to discharge with fidelity and impartiality the arduous duties which have devolved upon me, is for you and not for me to determine. I have been governed, in all my efforts, by a desire to do justice to all; to promote the common good of our country; to facilitate legislation; and if I have succeeded, in any degree, it is mainly attrihutable to the kind and efficient assistanc- I have at all times received from you. If, at any time, an unkind look or word has unconsciously es. caped from me, I pray you that it may be forgiven and forgotten. I part

with each of you with none other than the kindest of feelings, and shall car. ry with me into retirement lively recollections of our connection during the labors of the winter. We have all looked to this hour with anxiety and solicitude, as the termination of our labors and responsibilitles, with the pleasing thoughts of family, friends, and home, before us; but as the time has come to sever our connection, it inspires me with feelings different from what I had anticipated. Doubtless, to many of us, this is our last interview in time. May the blessings of God attend each of you to your homes and families; and may you there, from the approval of your constituents, receive the reward of your faithful labors for their and their country's prosperity. My prayers will go with you. And now permit me to bid you an affectionate farewell, and perform my last duty, by announcing that the flouse of Representatives of the State of Illlinois stands adjourncd, sine die.

JNO. McDONALD,
Clerk of the House of Representatites.
