It was proposed to have a military display on the occa sion, but with the modesty and good sense which marks every act of the dis tinguished oflicer who was to be the re cipient of the testimonial, he preferred that the ceremony shou'd, as far as pos sible, be confined to the civil authorities, particularly as the members of the Senate and House of Representatives would be piesent. Unfortunately, a shower of rain fell while the people were assembling, but it was of brief duration, and was succeeded by a bright sun. "On the balcony stood a table, upon which was so placed the piecs of plate to be presented, that it could be seen by the assembled people. Governor Hoppin stood at one side of this, and Commodore Perry, in full uniform, on the other. Lieutenant Bent, of tho Navy, Sheriff Lake, several Senators and other State officials, with many distinguished citi zens and strangers fillel the remaining space, while the other Senators and members of the House occupied places near. "On presenting the testimonial, Gov. Iloppin addressed Commodore Perry as follows: "Respected Sit: It is with great per-' sonal gratification that I accept the hon-1 or to become the instrument of convey ing to you a token ot the deep feelings of respect and interest with which the Gen eral Assembly of Bhode Island have re garded your course in the late difficult negotiations with the Empire of Japan. " They have watched the whole* pro gress of this important enterprise from its inception to its happy termination, with lively interest. They felt the sin gular embarrassment of your position? the more so from the fact that the honor of your own native State was involved in your success. They had no fear as far as yourself was concerned, that all things would not be accomplished with characteristic faithfulness and wisdom? but under all the possible contingencies of so great a movement, the vast compli cation of the details, the distance of the scene of operations, the rivalry of other nations, the total uncertainty of the bar barian mind ?they could not but have great solicitude. That solicitude is now past. The object which was every wav worthy of its dignified origin, and of the energies and sympathies of a great and enlightened nation, has been achieved ; and achieved also, under God, we believe, mainly through your own perseverance, sagacity and skill. " WJjere many might have failed through over much boldness, or cver-much fear, you seem to have pursued that golden middle course that conducted to perfect this success. " That which has been accomplished is held by the General Assembly of iihode Island to be of the greatest mo ment?both in the view of the commer cial interests of land, and the general interests of humanity. "The Island of Japan, stretching across fifteen degrees of latitude, and containing, probably a* many inhabit ants as the Luited States, who are gifted as a race with no common degree of in tellectual force and industrial talent? these islands, closed to the world for nearly two centuries, and never entirely opaned for benefit, or to be benefitted br other nations?have now unlocked their gates at the touch of power clothed with kindness. This was a new kind of tri umph. Military power, even while car rying the sword" at its side and the thun der-bolt at its command, yet choose to employ the weapons of reasou and of love. " The General Assembly of Rhode Island sec in this a certain foreshadow, ing of a moro wise method of settling international questions, and of recon ciling all diiTerences between govern ments. " The results cf the Japan Expedition have proved that there need be no lack of firmness, and no lowering of just de man?ls in the exercise of the utmost spirit of concil ation. The material advantages to be derived by our nation from the treaty with Japan may ba seen at a glance. What Holland by her jealous intrigues, has heretofore drawn from her commerce with Japan, in a very limited degree, will probably, in the course of time, be turned towards us in a mighty stream. And the boldness and wisdom which have secured for us the first place, will, as iu the case of England with China, fairly contribute to enrich us, while shutting out no others. But Ja pan, as a stepping-stone from our Pacific coast to the coast of Asia, lying only tweu.y days from California, afl'oiding a new depot for the track of Asiatic coin* merce, and a new place of supply, seems to promise to oonnect America and Asia together, as they never hare been con nected before. And there are, we con ceive, still higher views of the results of the treaty ot amity lately concluded with Japan. The cause of humanity has made a decided advance with that treaty. Not only will the unfortunate mariner, cast upon that merciless coast, now be as sured of kind treatment, and the dead from foreign lands now receive a decent sepulture, but the heart of this great peop e will be softened from its stern fe rocity, ita manners will be gradually ameliorated and elevated by contact with a Christian civilization, and the oppor tunity will be given for sowing among them the seeds of a pure religion. The fact that an Empire, twice sealed up by its own idolatry and by its former terri ble experience of a nominal Christianity, may now be slowly opened for the intro duction of the religion of tho Gospel, is a fireat and glorious fact, which it must be pleasing, sir, for you especially to con template. 44 Were this the occasion, and would time permit, many highly interesting ad ditional facts relating to your personal history in connection with the mission to Japan might be presented. The unwa vering faith which you had in the suc cess of the expedition, akin to that which animated the spirit and fortified the cour age of the great discoverer of this conti nent?the extraordinary discretionary powers confided to you by your govern ment, and the wise, humane, and benefi C' ntu-?e which you madeof those powers the memorable and delicate consideration manifested by you in the treaty stipula tions for the just rights of the Japanese women, thus recognizmgin that far distant land the appropriate influence ef women in all the important aftairs of life?the great moral power of the course of policy and rules of conduct which you adopted, es peciaily m declining to receive or make visits of ceremony, or to negotiate on the Christian Sabbath?thereby presenting to the minds of this intelligent and ob n^rving people, irrefutable proof of the respect and reverence of your nation for that great commandment of the Al m'?hty, which is enjoined upon us all 44 to remember the Sabbath day, to keep ? ??~^iese an(* kindred topics afiord rich food for thought and invite to ex tended remarks; but I forbear. Permit me now, sir. to present to you, in tlie name of your native State which cherishes, as among its most price less possessions, the name and memory of yeur heroic brother-this piece of pia.e, voted to you by the General As sembly of Rhode Island, in such terras as must give you gratification. The plate is altogether of Rhode Island fab ric: and from this circumstance its slight intrins:c value may be increased in your estimation. . 4< 1S least, sir, a sincere expres sion of the respect and approval, of your fellow-citizens of Rhode Island. They rejoice that the name of Perry is still a word of strength to your profession knd country, 'lhey rejoice that the olive leaf of Peace is entwined with its unfadine laurel. ? 1 receive, through me, the con gratulations of your friends in Rhode Island, and their earnest wishes that your life aud usefulness may be lonr nrc served." ? * The following are Commodore Perry's remarks in ieply: ^ ut r Excellekct ; It is impossible or me to ej press the feelings of grati .ud<i with which my heart responds to e "altering expressions you have this moment uttered in your capacity of Gov ernor of the gall aw t little State of Rhode Island, and as the organ of both branches of its legislative body. *ou ^ay well imagine my pride and satisfaction in being permitted thus to stand before this assembly, and upon a spot sanctified by the most agreeable as sociations. 44 It was in my earliest boyhood, be fore the intioduction of steamboats or railroad, that I often watched upon the shore for the first glimpse of the gaily decorated packet sloop that in those days annually brought thu Governor from Providmee to this town, and witnessed with cliild-iike delight, in sight of this very edifice, tho pomp, parade, and fes tivities of44 election day." 44 Since then I have traversed almost every pait of ti.e globe, in the prosecu tion of the duties ol a profession of winch I am justly proud; and now, after a lapse of nearly half & century when in declining life, to be called b^ the Ren reseiitatiyes of my native State back to tneso hallowed precincts, here to receive from the lips of its Chief Magistrate the commendations of my fellow-citixens, is an honor I little expected, when, as a boy miushipman forty-six ycars ago, I first embarked upon an element then and al ways the most congenial to my aspiration lor honorable emprise. 44 And should I not feel doubly hon ored in finding my public services asso ciated with thoso of a lamenied brother the memory of whose heroic deeds has st> far been, and I trust ever will be, fo^lv cherished by every true hearty Rh0/e Islander. " Is conducting the mission to Japan, whicn a confiding government entrusted to my sole charge, I was fully impressed with the magnitude of the responsibility imposed upon me; and true to this gen erous reliance upon my judgment and discretion, was the more ambitious to ac complish an objcct which to many seemed unattainable. You have just now, sir, told me how these services are appre ciated by those of my compatriots who are nearest and deaiest to me?and I am satisfied. 44 The valuable testimonial, rj0W prc. sented with so much cloquep.ce and erace shall bo prewired ia ?y heirloom, to commemorate an event to rdMy V1 Wh? lnaJ ** allied fimV t if ?k ??^ to the grateful re cipient, who begs to tender to your Ex cellency and all her present his profound aud heartfelt thanks." The testimonial consists of a magnifi cent silver salver, of unusually large di mensions, massive in weight, and almost elaborately chased. This salver is oval io form, 28 inches long inside the handles, and about 36 inches outside. It weighs 319 ounces. The embellishments and de signs arc entirely in the border, which is four inches in its greatest width, the cen tre being left plain to receive the inscrip tion. The opposite centres of the bor der midway between the handles, are oc cupied by the coat-of-arms of the United States and of Rhode Island, in bold re lief?the former supported upon a clus ter of flags of the I niNd States, and th? latter surrounded by a wreath of palm leaves. The handles, which a*e large, and composed of scroll and shell work, are so arranged as to form a portion of the border, by which means the awkward appearance of detached pieces is avoided Immediately beneath, or inside of each hindle, is a large eagle, in bold relief. At the quarters, midway between the han dles and the ooats of-arms, are four com partments, formed by the arrangement of the scroll work, containing clusters of fruit from all countries. The olive branch, bearing fruit, is entwined among the scroll work. The handles, though very large, do not have that appearance, ow ing to the great width of the border, and the manner in which they are connected. This salver was designed, modeled and made in every particular in the establish ment of Messrs. Gorham A Co., and there is no doubt it has the heaviest border ev er manufactured in this country. It was designed and modeled by Mr. Wm. Clark, who is in the employment of the man ufacturers. The centre was engraved by G W. Babcock. The case, which is of beautiful workmanship, is of solid rose* wood, in the form of the salver, and mounted with heavy plated trimmings. This was made by Messrs. Wm. C. Mil lard and Co., William street, and up holstered by B. A. Norton, Westminster street. We may confidently pronounce the whole one of the most exquisitely beautiful pieces of silver work ever exe cuted in the United States, reflecting great credit on the taste and skill of the firm by which it was designed and ex ecuted. The following is the inscription: '?Presented to Commodore Matthew Calh&aitit Perrt, in the r.ame of the people of ;he State ef Rhode Island, by their General Assembly, in testimony of their appreciation of his services to his country in negotiating a treaty ot amity and commerce with Japan, and in ac knowledgement of the honor he has cc -1 ferred upon his native State, maintaining the renown of the name he bears, and ad ding to the triumphs of his profession hose of humanity and peace.
