|#1 In the passing of these
three great intellects, there is something peculiarly touching. Talcott
died suddenly at the early age of forty-five, leaving the members of the
New York bat as sincere mourners. Butler, after the highest and purest
living, died at fifty-nine, just as he landed in France to visit the
scenes of which he had read and dreamed. Marcy at sixty-two, having
recently retired as president Pierce's Secretary of State, was found
lifeless, lying upon his bed, book in hand. He had been reading, as he
had read since childhood, whenever there came a lull in the demand for
his wisdom, his counsel, and his friendship.--Alexander's
