Excerpt from Bushrod Washington: Damna Tamen Celeres Reparant Caelestia Lunae; Nos, Ubi Decidimus, Quo Pater Aeneas, Quo Dives Tullus Et Ancus, Pulvis Et Umbra Sumus

Upon the death of Judge Washington, the late Hon. Joseph Hopkinson, the District Judge at that time, delivered an Eulogium upon him, at the request of a Committee of the Bar of Philadelphia. The Discourse was very just and expressive in its praise, and quite pointed in noticing Judge vvashington's calmness and fearlessness at a time of high excitement. He illustrated these qualities by a particular statement of The United States v. Bright, in April, 1809, a case in which brigadier-general Bright was indicted, convicted, sentenced, and sent to prison, for obstructing, with an armed military force, by the express orders of the Governor of this Commonwealth, expressly authorized by a public law of the State, the final process of the District Court of the United States, issued in obedience to a mandate from the Supreme Court at Washington. The military body had been evaded by the Marshal, who executed his process, and the Governor then succumbed, and paid the amount of the execution. The supreme authority being thus enforced, a pardon by the Presi dent was presented to the brigadier-general at the prison door. The eulogist, in strong but general terms, also spoke of Judge Washing ton's unrivalled talents upon the Bench, but, probably to abridge the discourse, or to give place for a full detail and application of the prosecution above mentioned, he omitted to analyze or to distinguish some other peculiar and clearlydefined characteristics of his subject, which the writer thinks of sufficient interest to present in the present form. No one, perhaps, was better acquainted with these character istics, than Judge Hopkinson, or could have described them better.
