DEATH OF JUDGE HUMPHREYS: At a meeting of the members of the Bar in Holly Springs, on the 20th inst., to pay a tribute of respect to the memory of the Hon. P. W. Humphreys, the Hon. A. M. Clayton was called to the Chair and I. N. McCampbell, Esq. Appointed Secretary.
S. B. Isaacs, Esq., in introducing the following preamble and resolutions, said: Mr. Chairman, I am grieved to announce to this meeting the painful and unwelcome news of the death of the late Hon. P. W. Humphreys, recently a citizens of this place.
Intelligence of this character is ever calculated to arouse in the mind the gloomiest reflections, awaken us to a sense of the brevity of life, and point us to the goal to which are all hastening; but when we learn of the death of a distinguished statesman or philanthropist, one who has spent the golden hours of his life in the service of his country, and not in the advancement of the happiness of mankind, one who is endeared to us by his lofty and high-toned principles, his genuine and unalloyed virtues, we are impelled deeply and sorrowfully to mourn and lament our loss. Such was the distinguished individual whom we now mourn and whose memory and virtues demand of us this our last heartfelt tribute.
He was an early settler in the State of Tennessee, was honored with many high and important offices in that State, represented it for a series of years in our National Legislature, and afterwards became an able and efficient member of the Judiciary department. His whole eventful life was worthy of imitation, mild, courteous, and dignified in his intercourse with his fellow-men, he was scrupulous never to offend the most delicate and sensitive. In his political creed he was firmly attached to the principles of Thomas Jefferson, and in the advancement and establishment of these great principles of freedom, he battled long, ably and faithfully. If the example of the deceased in his political and public career is worth our admiration, his private and social virtues are no less worthy of emulation. It was around the fire-side, in his own family circle, that his virtues were most conspicuously shown. It was in these situations that the genuine principles of his heart and soul swelled forth to the full measure of benevolence, kindness and charity. I now, Mr. Chairman, move the adoption of the following preamble and resolutions:
Whereas, we have learned with regret the death of the Hon. P. W. Humphreys, lately a citizen of this place, and whereas his kindness and benevolence, his urbane and courteous manners and amiable deportment in society, have deeply endeared him to all those who knew him. Therefore,
Resolved, That the members of the Bar have lost in him a generous and devoted friend, and a brother in the profession, whose example is worthy of imitation.
Resolved, That this meeting and the people of Holly Springs generally, deeply mourn and deplore his death.
Resolved, That his family has sustained an irreparable loss, and society one of its most valued members.
Resolved, That as a testimony of our regard for the deceased, we wear the usual badge of mourning for thirty days.
Resolved, That these proceedings be signed by the Chairman and Secretary and published in the papers of this place, and that a copy be transmitted to his family at Hernando, Miss.
