John Ka ' jidpi p h , Esq, late member of Con- gress from Virg inia, who was present , then rose and- returned thanks for this .. .mark of respect towards the United States of Ame- m«# He said after the eloquence which had already been disp layed' upon ' this great 9ubj eet , ijuwould be ah \ act of presumplioti scarc(d y r excusable in any stranger , but un- pardonable m^hi ' m , ' to intrude his unpresiic- ditated e ' xpresMons upon them, after the able speeches wiiicb-fhey had not onl y heard but felt. (App lause..) He was , however. Impelled b y a double motive , which he cohld sot resist, to offer himself a few moments, to their attention. First, to discharge ah act of duty in behalf of his native land, hi; the absence of its official representative—an absence as uncspeetcd b y him, as it was un- foreseen, and which had east upon him a 'dti tj he felt inadequate to perform—that oi thanking this meeting for the grateftri sense they had expressed towards America, and also to assure (hem that all that was esalted in sfarion , in talent ^ and in moral character* among his countrymen, was (as was also to be found in Eng land) firml y united for . the suppression of this infamous traffic. (Loud App lause.) It was delig htful, to him to know that \Virg inia; the land of his sires , the p lace of his nativity, had for half a cen- tury affixed a public brand, an indelible sti g- ma upon this traffic, arid had put in the claim of Ihe wretched objects of it to the common rig hts and attribute s of humanity.
