Lemuel Hastings Arnold
[Add Flowers]
June 27.—In Kingston, R. I., Hon. Lemuel H. Arnold, aged 49. He was born in St. Johnsbury, Vt., January 29, 1792. He removed to Rhode Island at an early age. He graduated at Dartmouth College in 1811, and was educated to the bar, but left it to engage in mercantile pursuits. In 1831, he was elected to the office of Governor of the State, to which office he was reelected the following year. In 1842 he was a member of the Governor's Council during the Dorr war, and from 1845 to 1847 he was one of the Representatives of the State in Congress. He was a gentleman of stern integrity, and enjoyed the esteem of his fellow-citizens. His father, Jonathan Arnold, was a member of the Continental Congress from Rhode Island, and in May, 1776, drew up the Rhode Island Act repealing the laws providing for the oaths of allegiance to the mother country. ——The American Almanac and Repository of Useful Knowledge, for the Year 1853 (Boston: Little, Brown and Co.), 1853, p. 337.

He who rules by moral force is like the pole star, which remains in place while all the lesser stars do homage to it.
