At a meeting of the bar of the Supreme Court on Saturday, January 19th, 1878, in the Supreme Court Room, Hon. George S. Hawkins was elected President and George P. Reney, Esq., Secretary.

On motion, the President appointed the following committee on resolu. tions: David S. Walker, Sr., of Tallahassee, R. C. Campbell, of Pensacola, and E. J. Vann, of Madison. The committee retired, and after a short elected President and George P. Raney, Esq., Secretary.

Resolved, that the bar of Florida has received with feelings of profound sorrow the announcement of the death of Hon. Charles Henry DuPont, which occurred at the residence of his son-in-law, Captain William B. Malone, in Quincy, Gadsden county, Florida, on October 14, 1877.

Resolved. That in whatever position he was placed he rendered important services to his country, for which and for his virtues in private life his name deserves to be cherished with grateful and lasting remem. brance by his fellow-citizens.

Resolved, That as a token of our affectionate regard for him as one of our brethren, and of our gratitude for his services to our profession and our State, we will wear crape on the left arm for thirty days.

Resolved, That the Supreme Court of this State now in session be requested to cause the proceedings of this meeting to be spread upon its minutes, and that a copy thereof be sent by the Secretary to the family of the deceased.

The resolutions were unanimously adopted, and the meeting adjourned.

Upon the opening of the Supreme Court on the same day, Mr. David S. Walker, Sr., addressed the court as follows: May it please the Court:
