ticipated in all other measures of public concern, and was regarded 88 à liberal-minded and valuable member of the House.
At this period Mr. CHAMBERS had acquired very considerable character as a lawyer and a politician, in a section of the country which was rather prodigal of sound lawyers and acute politicians. He was able to cope with the best of them, and his success in both capacities' was more marked than generally falls to the lot of young
But he was not satisfied with this position. His ambition was not yet gratified. Possibly his connexion as editor of a weekly newspaper at Bowling Green, in Pike county, first turned his attention to a different theatre and a more extended field of action and usefulness. At all events, his negotiatons for the purchase of the “Missouri Republican” were consummated, and in July, 1837, he became the editor and joint proprietor of the establishment—a position which he retained to the time of his fatal illness. How he performed his multifarious duties — with what vigor, and energy, and judgment and tact--the people are here to bear testimony, and the paper itself is the best evidence. For seventeen years, his history is blended with that of the “Republican,” and it needs neither illustration, nor apology, nor defence.
In all the troublous times of the city within that period and they were many and remarkable, and such as no other city has experienced — we never knew his spirit to quail, or to give way under what seemed to be thick-coming and unending disasters. He was always at his post, in the gloomiest times - encouraging the timid, counselling the desperate, diligently unfolding the means of avoiding the effects of pecuniary, or other embarrassments and never for a moment despairing of the glorious destiny of St. Louis. The Flood, the Fire, and the Pestilence, quickly following each other, had no terror to deter him from the performance of his obligations as a citizen and as a man; and those who served with bim as members of the Board of Public Health” in that fatal year when the cholera daily swept hundreds of people to the grave, and when the strongest-minded men gave way before the panic, will bear witness to the personal services rendered by him, day and night, throughout that frightful period.
Of his social relations—his hospitality-his attention to strangers, and his friendly intercourse with his fellow-citizens — it does not become us to speak. It was a source of great pleasure to him to be able to extend these courtesies and civilities, at all times, to the recipients of them.
Mr. CHAMBERS was married in 1833 to the lady who now mourns his death. He leaves three children- a son and two daughters— and two step-sons, to whom he has been as faithful as a fatherto regret that they have so soon been deprived of his excellent counsel and fond care. They have the sympathy of the whole community in their affliction.
