That the melancholy event which has brought together the vast assemblage present here this day has revived in the public mind a recollection of the transcendant services and labours of Daniel O'CONNELL, that man of rare integrity, who with every opportunity afforded to him professionally and poli. tically in his lengthened career of aggrandizing himself and his family, died, after a glorious public life, in the enjoyment of unequalled popularity, yet learing to his descendants little more than the inheritance of a great reputation.

That John O'Connell, whose obsequies we have attended this day-to whom his father was most tenderly attached, and of whose merits and devotion to his country so many sincere evidences have been given—has passed away, leaving after him a young and numerous family with means too slender and inadequate for the future support of their position in life.

Moved by Francis W. Brady, Esq., seconded by Carew O’Dwyer, Esq.: That it becomes the country, to whose material and intellectual developement were consecrated the genius and labours of O'Connell, to manifest its grateful veneration for the name, by a resolve to raise, by public subscription, a fund, to be added respectfully to any means already existing for the education and advancement of the family

of John O'Connell. Moved by Patrick O'Brien, Esq., M.P. ; seconded by Sir Edward M'Donnel :

That a subscription be accordingly opened with this object, and that Sir James Power, Bart., and Denis Moylan, Esq., Alderman, be the Treasurers of this Fund, and that a Committee, with power to add to their numbers, be now nominated to take charge of the sum to be raised, and to vest it in such a manner as shall insure its proper application and carry out the object of this meeting, and that the Committee be requested to open a communication with the various localities in Ireland and elsewhere likely to assist, so as to produce a general concurrence in the national design. Moved by Edmund Smithwick, Esq., and seconded by P. V. Fitzpatrick,

That the following Gentlemen be now named as members of Committee : Right Hon, the Lord Mayor, his Grace the Most Rev. Dr. Cullen, Archbishop of Dublin, the Right Hon. the Lord Chief Baron, the Right Hon. Judge Keogh, Hon. Justice O'Brien, Very Rev.
