PROCEEDINGS OF THE PUBLIC MEETING.

At a numerous meeting of the citizens of New-York, held in pursuance of a call through the public papers, at the Merchant's Exchange on Monday, the 19th of November, 1832–On motion, by John Duer, Esq. David HADDEN, Esq. President of the St. Andrew's Society, was called to preside, and, by motion of Charles King, Esq. the Hon. WILLIAM A. Due R, President of Columbia College, and CoRNELIUs W. Law RENCE, Esq. were selected as Vice-Presidents. On motion, by Charles F. Hoffman, Esq. JAMEs Lawson, and Prosper M. WEtMoRE, were appointed Secretaries. The following preamble and resolutions were presented, with some appropriate remarks, by the Rev. Doctor Wainwright, and unanimously adopted. The citizens of New-York have assembled to express their deep and unfeigned regret at the death of Sir Walter Scott. They feel that no eulogy of theirs can exalt the fame of him who has won the proud distinction of being compared with those who were the brightest ornaments of past ages. The writings of Sir Walter Scott have delighted and instructed almost every nation of the earth. The vigor of his mind, and the excellence of his life, have added to the intellectual and moral wealth of the world. The dwellers in his own mountain land, and they who tread our far-distant peaceful shores, may well emulate each other in offering a tribute to his memory—for, his fame is a legacy to man. The citizens of New-York, revering the beautiful simplicity of Sir Walter Scott's character; appreciating the elegance and value of his writings; and deploring his death, in common with the friends of literature throughout the world, desire to evince their admiration of his genius, and their respect for his memory. Therefore, be it Resolved, That while we yield to the people of Scotland the pride of local associations, for, that the land of their nativity was also the birth-place of the author of Marmion and Waverley, we claim to share equally in their veneration for the purity of character, and splendor of genius which distinguished the “Minstrel of the North.” Resolved, That we tender with heartfelt sincerity the expression of our sorrow and sympathy to the relatives and friends of the deceased, for their irreparable loss. The following resolutions, introduced by John DUER, Esq. who supported them in an able and eloquent address, were unanimously adopted. Resolved, That a committee of fifteen be appointed, with power to increase their number, whose duty it shall be to receive subscriptions in aid of the fund, proposed to be appropriated as a tribute to the memory of Sir Walter Scott, and that no subscription shall exceed ten dollars. Resolved, That the funds to be raised by the the committee under the preceding resolution, be applied by them, in their discretion, to the erection of a monu
