. Death or coi. iiemon.
The . telegraph apprised us, about 4
o'clock last eveiiiiig, of the death, in
Washington City, of Thos. H. Benton.
No other particulars were then commu
cated, except that both Houses of Congress
in token of- respect for the deceased, im
mediately adjourned. This was . an ap
propriate testimonial of respect, inasmuch
as Mr. Benton was a member ot the
Senate for thirty ytars, and afterwards
served two years, as a Representative
from the St. Louis District. . The critical
condit on of his health, had, to some ex
tent prepared the public mind to ht ar of
his death, rut it occurnu at a somewhat
earlier priod than it was expected. His
desease has been, termed cancer of . the
stomach, and a vigorous constitution
could only be interposed to postpone, not
prevent; his. dissolution. In the 74th
war of his .age, calmly, with a full
knowledge of hi condition, he ''put of!

There are those who knew Col. Benton
long, in his social and political relations,
who will be summoned, and will be raady
to do ample justice to his memory and to
his character. For nearly forty years he
filled, a large space in the public eye.-
Even before his election as a Senator
from Missouri, he was not unknown to
fame; but it was only after his election in
1826 that his name became associated
with the names of the most illustrious men
in the country. His Senatorial career,
for two-thirds of that period was undoubt
edly a brilliant one, but that brilliancy
was not such as we all accord to Calhoun,
or Clay, or Webster, or Barton, or any
of those Senators who are regarded, in
the public esteem, as his cotemporaries
