W. L. MARCY. Albany, May 11, 1835.

A message from the Senate, delivered by Mr. Livingston and Mr. Tracy, was received, informing that the Senate were ready to adjourn. Ordered, That Mr. Wetmore and Mr. Blatchley wait upon

the Governor, and inform him, that unless he has some further business to lay before the Legislature, this House is ready to adjourn.

Ordered, That Mr. Cash and Mr. Hillyer be a committee to wait upon the Senate, and inform them that this House is ready to adjourn.

Mr. Cash reported, that pursuant to the order of the House, Mr. Hillyer and himself had waited upon the Senate, and informed them that this House was ready to adjourn.

Mr. Wetmore reported, that pursuant to the order of the House, Mr. Blatchley and himself had waited upon the Governor, and informed him, that unless he had some further business to lay before the Legislature, this House was ready to adjourn; and that the Governor had been pleased to say that he had no further communication to make to the Legislature.

On motion of Mr. Patterson, Resolved unanimously, That the thanks of this House be presented to the Hon. Charles Humphrey, Speaker of the Assembly, for the able, dignified and impartial manner with which he has discharged the arduous and responsible duties of the chair; and that in retiring from the station he has so honorably and faithfully filled, he will carry with him the best wishes of the members of this House. To which his Honor the Speaker made the following reply:

GENTLEMEN, Our public services having ended, we are about to return to our individual avocations, and to the enjoyments and duties of domestic life.

On looking back through the period which we have passed together, we can find great cause for mutual congratulation, and but little for unpleasant reflection. Our proceedings have been distinguished by as much of harmony and good temper, and as little

embittered by party asperity or personal collision, as has been the lot of any of our predecessors in this Hall. I may not, on this occasion, speak of the talents of this House, individually or collectively; but I may, without impropriety, claim for its members the credit which is due to industrious and patient labor in the public service.

A very small and comparatively unimportant proportion of the business submitted to us has been left undisposed of; and in the amount and importance of what has been accomplished, taking into view the increasing population and business of the State, our proceedings will be found to sustain a favorable comparison with those of any former session.

In this moment of separation, it affords us a melancholy pleasure to turn from the cold and perplexing business of legislation, to the indulgence of those kindlier feelings connected with the social relations which we sustain towards each other.

When we came together in this hall from the various sections of the State, many of us met for the first time. Many of us then met with the indifference with which strangers regard each other, who will now part with the regrets which attend the departure of friends. As men, we can appreciate the sentiments which such a relation inspires. Statesmen can appreciate the influence of such a cause upon the stability of our political institutions.

I take this opportunity, with great pleasure, to acknowledge my obligations to the Clerk of the House, for the aid which I have received from his intelligence and experience. The progress of business has been greatly facilitated by the methodical arrangements in his department, and the prompt attention of those connected with it. It is also due to the officers of the House, to bear testimony to the fidelity with which they have filled their several stations, on which the preservation of order and the comfort of members essentially depend.

I entered upon the duties of the chair with a distrust of my ability to discharge them. They are always arduous, often delicate and embarrassing. It has been my endeavor, by an adherence to our rules, and a strict impartiality with regard to members, and such attention to the general subjects of legislation as my peculiar duties would permit, to promote the despatch of business, and retain the confidence of the House. That I have succeeded in the latter respect beyond my hopes, I have the gratifying assurance contained in the resolution which you have just passed, and in the unanimity with which it was adopted.

Gentlemen, I have throughout the session been cheered and encouraged in my official labors by your constant and liberal support. In our personal intercourse, courtesy and kindness have prevailed without an exception. For all this, I cannot content myself with rendering you a mere formal acknowledgment of thanks. I feel that I owe you a deep and lasting debt of gratitude. With my best wishes for your prosperity and happiness, I now bid you, each and all, an affectionate farewell. The Speaker then adjourned the House sine die.

P. REYNOLDS, JR. Clerk.
