Hon. N. H. Purple was called to the Chair. Hon. Wm. C. Goudy was appointed Secretary. On motion, a committee of seven was appointed by the Chair to report resolutions to an adjourned meeting. The Chair appointed Thomas Hoyne, B. C. Cook, Geo. Campbell, Ebenezer Peck, James Roberts, H. M. Wead, and W. W. Orme. At the adjourned meeting, Mr. Hoyne reported the following resolutions: Resolved, That in the recent death of our esteemed friend and brother, the late W. H. L. Wallace, from wounds received while gallantly leading a division at the battle of Pittsburgh Landing, the Bar of Illinois, in common with the people of the whole State, deplore the loss of a soldier, who, as well in his life, as by the manner of his death on the field, has sealed by his blood this new testimony of the ineradicable devotion which the people of Illinois are manifesting in heroic deeds and patriotic sacrifices to that form of free government on this continent, which domestic traitors are so wickedly attempting to overthrow. Resolved, That while as citizens, the State may regret the loss of the experienced chief who could successfully inspire by his personal daring and valor, the troops committed to his charge, and by his example and bravery command success in the desperate charge or assault of battle, - and while to the grateful history of his country is now committed that fame, which to remote ages will rank his name with the other heroic defenders and founders of the Republic- - yet the Bar of Illinois have a sadder tribute to render now to his memory, by an expression of the profound grief which they feel at this final parting, and loss of a friend and brother. Resolved, That they knew in the late W. H. L. Wallace, one who, while possessing all the virtues that adorn a private life of exemplary excellence, in his professional character he was also a man without spot or blemish. Of a persevering industry, a very high order of legal attainment, and the very highest order of intellectual capacity, he seemed above all to shine in the very spirit of intellectual, moral and professional rectitude.
