Mr. Connelly addressed the House as follows:

Mr. Speaker: It is with no ordinary feeling of pleasure that I arise in this House to-day to place in nomination for United States Senator to represent the State of Illinois, for six years from the 4th day of March next, in the Senate of the United States, one of our citizens who, by his own honest, manly efforts, and true hearted, noble courage, has · written his name broadly, brightly and indelibly upon the pages both of our State and national history, and carved it deeply upon the face of the century in which he lives. In presenting this name, sir, which is known only to be respected and honored throughout all the broad limits of our Prairie State-in the mansion of the wealthy as well as in the cabin of the humble-I feel that I am but echoing the strong-voiced utterance of all classes within our State, as expressed by them at the ballot box last November, and that he, whose name I present, will represent the people of the State of Illinois as truly, as faithfully and as honestly in the Senate of the United States, as he led their sons gallantly upon many crimsoned fields. He needs no word of eulogy or commendation. Unstained by corruption and free from venality, he will go up from among the mass of toilers in our State, as one of them

selves with a great head full and heart full of sturdy integrity, to represent them in the National Council. I therefore noininate him, Major General Richard J. Oglesby, for United States Senator from the State of Illinois, for six years from the 4th day of March next.

Mr. Rogers addressed the House as follows:

Mr. Speaker: I have the honor to place in nomination for United States Senator, a statesman of acknowledged ability, of purity of life, and character above suspicion—a gentleman who has reflected credit upon this State from that exalted position for many years. I have the honor, sir, to place in nomination, in behalf of the democrats and liberals of this legislature, the Hon. Lyman Trumbull.
