Excerpt from Addresses Delivered at the Complimentary Dinner Given to the Hon. John B. Weller: By Citizens of California, at the Kirkwcod House, Washington, D. C., On Thursday, January 22, 1857

Among those to whom I have alluded, is one whom we have especially met to honor. He sought not California in the wild and reckless spirit of adventure, much less from sordid avarice, to gather the golden sands of her mountain streams, or the bright pearls of her ocean waves; blit having won distinction as the rep resentative of his native State in the halls of legislation - having bravely led her gallant sons to Victory on the battle-fields of Mexico - he left home, kindred, and friends, to join a people struggling for independence and the right of self-government. For the aid and counsel given us in the darkest hour of the winter of our discontent, California was not unmindful, and soon called him to the position which he now occupies. Of the ability, dig nity, and patriotism with which he has discharged his duties as a Senator, I need not speak. The record is enrolled in the Capitol, and will attest to all future time that he never sacrificed principle to expediency, or his fidelity to the Constitution to party purpose or political speculation. Carrying into the Senate Chamber the same kind feelings and courteous deportment which has endeared him to the friends of his social circle, he has gained the esteem and regard of his illustrious compeers, as is shown by the presence of those around us, as well as the regrets of many at their una voidable absence.
