return at once to his party. He nOw dis
covered that Washington :was a soldier to
be feared end respected. •,•
The force of the whole British -army,'
was (now •in the dead of winter as • it was,)
put in requisition to surround Washington.
Tobring him to . battle except upon his, awn
terms, had been impossible. In rho mean
time, Congress had• conferred upon him
dictatprial powers, authorizing him to ap
point arid displace all officers under the
rank •of Brigadier general—to establish
their pay, and to fill vacancies in other de
partments—to take whatever he judged
necessary for the use of the army—to ar
rest and confine all persons who might• re
fuse to take' constitutional money, or be
otherwise disaffected to the cause. A copy
of these powers were enclosed by Congress
to the Governor of , each state, requesting
thiiim to laid Waehing,t6rl in the exercise .ofl
these powers. •
January 2d, 1777, found Washington ) l
again in greet 'peril. The etlemy were ad
vancing upon him in every direction, and
his' whole force of regulars, only enlisted
for's' few weeks,. tind that as a matter oft
personal favor to "him. As the rear of tho
A-merican army left in village, the front of
the British'would enter in five times the
forcer Fortunately, Washington, just at
dark had placed Assanipink Creek in
Trenton, between him and Lord Cornwal
lis, and night coming on, the British army
could not ford it in safety. Both'armies
posted their centries and resumed their
camp fires. Washington saw that• he
would be in the morning entirely surround
ed, and his army cut up, unless he could
change his position before morning, and
that undiscovered by his vigilant enemy.
at once impressed all the teams within
reach, •and before twelve 'o'clock all his
baggage and heavy artillery, was by a
circuitous route, on the way to Princeton.
Having renewed his fires late at night, the
enemy had do suspicion of his movement,
until they were startled in the morning by
the roar of his cannon charging upon the
British at Princeton, where over 500 of
the enemy, wore left dead upon the field.
Cornwallis, upon finding himself thus out
generated, at once' made a forced march
after Washington, who, having destroyed
all the bridges on his mi4ch,delayed Lord
Cornwallis so long in repairing as to ena
ble the American army to again change
position, and thus avoid theappeartince of
having made a retreat. In this battle, the
loss of American officers was very severe.
Among the slain was Brig. Gen. Mercer,
a brave , man. Congress erected to his
memory a monument, and ordered that
his children should be educated at the
public expense. The same honor in the
same resolve was extended to Gen. Joseph
Warren who fell at Bunker Hill. • The
delay 'in the approach of Lord Lord Corn*
wallis - upon Princeton by the destruction
of tha bridges enabled Washington to pur
sue the 'flying British from Princeton for
several miles. Thus while Washington
was being pursued by a superior force on
the ono hand, he was hard pressing anoth
er division of the enemy', and all this with
in hearing of each other. These great
movements of Washington soon caused his
name 'to be venerated, in Europe. • Dr.
Franklin wrote him, on hearing of these
victories, "All the world, on this side the
water, consider you as the greatest captain
of the age."
Notwithstanding • these brilliant results,
Washington had only, accomplished ono
half of bis plim•when he made the forced
march to ,P'r'inceton. • His' design was to
Nave urged his , harnessed troops on to
Brunswick, but liefound BO many of them

Short Patent Sermon.
I shall give . you a sermon to-day, drawn
fr i pm the following, text:: • '
,:The lady isto before tho tub.
is not ashamed to wring and ill!)
Or on the floor ashamed to scrub,' •
And cares not who calls in to see, •
Her laboring so industriously, i
Will make a wife for you or mo.
My learefh- 7 it was ordained by Heav
en—not by the devil.;--that every man
should have a, wife, and every woman be
bleised with a hiisband: the begin
ing God 'made two of the genus h6mo-r-of
opposito sex., a The one he elected, pbsitiVe
ly and the Other ono negatively : so , that
when they approximated,, their Mystical
effect would bo produced from the ono to
the other. The how, the why, and tho
wherefore, no mortal has yet been able to
understand—neither is it necessary that
ho should. The sex naturally 'approach
and adhere to each , other, through some
mysteiious influence that admAs of no so
lution. Let it suffice that it is so. ,hen
the creator made Adam hosaw that it Was
tibt.good for him 'to be alone; so ho ynes
merised man—dug a rib from lig side
with Out the least parilcle of pain Irani from
it he made Eve, to be a helpmate for him,
as well as a fancy plaything. Now,with:
out knoWing What love was, they couldn't
help, loving the moment they set their eyes I
open one another. He cast sheep's eyes
at her at a distance, and she threw some
killing glances in return, that fired his soul,
and set his heart vibrating like a splinter
upon a chestnut rail in a sou' wester.—
They finally came together just as natur
ally as a couple of apple seeds swimming
in a bason ()Ntter. But situated as they
were at first, and having little or no man
tle' labor to perform--Evo could be of lit
tle real utility to Adam and Adam'could'nt
do a great deal for Eve. Still they loved
and were willing to assist each other, in
case of any emergent casuality, and so
when they tound-that aprons were neces
sary, they set to,
and with the needle
worked together for mutual goo llip Eve
only understood plain sewing—she knew
nothing about your embroidery, lace work
ing and piano playing, and cared not about
the same. -The couple were perfectly hap
py in their rude and rough state, until the
sarpint got among 'cm and even they stuck
to each other through thick and thin, and
through all the brambling vicisitudes of
life—from Paradise to perdition.
My brethren since you know that mar
riage is a divine institution, and that every
one of you should have a wife, what kind
of a rib would you select 1 a pretty little
useless doll, or n woman big and spunky
enough to Tassel with a bear, and come off
first best? 1 imagtne you care nothing for
either extreme; but you would look for
personal charms. 0, you • foolish idola
ters at the shrine of beauty I---Know you
not that hundreds of husbands are made
miserable wives and that thousands are
happy in the possession' of homely ones 1
Homely without but beautiful within. Alas!
what is beauty? It is a flower that wilts
and withers almost as soon as it is plucked,
a transient rainbow, a fleeting meteor, a
deceitful will-of-the-wist sufligmated moon
shine. The kind ern wife you want is of
good morals and knows how to mend trow
sera, who can reconcile peeling potatoes
with practical or fashionable piety, who
can waltz with the churn dash, and sing
with tho tea-kettle; who understands broom•
ology,andthe true science of mopping; who
cah knit stockings 'without knitting her
brows, and knit up her husband's ravelled
sleeve of care ; , who prefers sewing tears ,
with her needle,- to sowing the tears of
scandal 'with her tongue. '• Such is deci
dedly a bitter half:. Take her if you can
get her-L-let her be up to the elbbws in the
suds of the wash tub, or picking the geese
in a cow stable. - • •
My hearers-;--my text speaks of a lady ,
befoie , tho wash tub. You may think it
absurd, but let me (Mine you theta, female
can'be a lady before. a wash tub or in the
kitchen, as much as in the drawing room,
or in the parlor. What constitutes a lady?
It is not a costlYdress,paint for the cheeks,

general deportMent,her intellectual endow
ments, rind thatlevidenob of virtue which
commands the silent 'respect and admire

and an.ttrert of tthly 50,000 square miles,
or just thirty-tWo millions ofucres,giving,

each inhabitant.' Tho residence of • the
Duke is a complete palace. One exten
sive hall is covered with yellow - silk, and
pictures in the richest . 'azia most costly
tapestry. The dishes and - plates upon• the
table are all of porcelain, silver.and gold.
Twenty-five race horses stand in the, stable
each being assi g ned' to the care of a spe

In the grounds about his house are kept
four hundred head of cattle, and fourteen
hundred deer. The kitchen garden con

every species of fruit and vegetables. A
vast apboretum, connected with the estab

glass conservatory 357 feet in length,
12 in breadth, 67. in height, covered by
67,000 square feet of glass, and warmed
by seven miles of pipes conveying hot
water. One plant was obtained from In

at $lO,OOO. One of the fountains, near
the house, plays 285 feet high, said to be
the highest jet in the world. Chastworth

wealth and refined-taste.
TUE CAM Sys-rmit.—The evils of the
credit system, in minor transactions, 'are
the experience of almost every one. The
remarks belnw apply as well - to most
kinds of business as to publishing:—
With publshers of newspapers, in com
mon with business men generally, the
cash system is preferable to any other ; to
publishers who rely, or nearly so,
their subscription list for support, for the
prosecution of their business, they must
necessarily be the loser. There nre
thousands of well meaning men, who sub.
scribe for newspapers and intend to pay
for them; but the idea of writing a letter
to an editor enclosing two, three, five, or
eight dollars, never enters their heads—
though if called upon for the amount due
would probly be prepared to meet the, der
mud. But the publisher of almost every
country newspapet Anews,it . would he out
of the question for ,him to employ a. colH
lector out of the, profits of his
tions; so many of his patrons continue
year after year taking the paper without
udvancing a coat, while he is ,paying Cash
for his printing and materials,
his paper and labor 4. and every thing else
necessary to carry on business. , Here,
then, is a loss- 7 -not attributed to any, de
sign on the part, of,the subseribers to de
lraud, but tho fruit ofa, worse than wortli

We are seldom .called upon to record a
MOTO dreadful and revolting tragedy than
one which occurred' in this city on Satur
dhy . It 'was ono of those corn ,
bintitions of crime, to be guilty of which
all the fiendish passions of man must , tole
predominate,_ unrestrained by any moral
principle. The particylars, so far Its have
yet been developed, are as follows:
About five o'clock on Saturday morning,
Mrs. Mentz, residing in Maiden lane, near
Little East street, befweed Baltimore and
Fayette streets, .heard a noise in the street
and on looking from her window discover
ed a man named James White, who lived
opposite, knocking violently at the door
of his residence. He was apparently
much intoxicated; and as it was quite cus
tomary for him to come home in that con
dition, Mrs. M., paid 06 more attention
to him. Shortly after this 'a noise was
heard in the house, as though there wail a
violent struggle going, on, and soon after
the building was discovered to lie on' fire.
An alarm was raised, and several of the
neighbors gathered, and endeavored to ex
tinguish the flames, which was notaccorn:
plished until after the building had been
considerably burned.
Some of the neighbors then went into
the house to ascertain the amount of the
damage, and on going into theAsecond
story front room, found a son of Mr.
White, aged about two years; lying on the
bed, patially consumed, with his throat
cut and•skull fractured. On the floor ofl
the same room was a sister of the child,
about fifteen years, of age, mutilated in a
similar manner; by her side lay the father,
between whom and the daughter there
seemed to have been a protracted struggle
in the course of which, the head of the
girl was thrust beneath a shoe-bench,
where it was still laying, the throat of„the
father was cut from ear to ear, so as al
most to sever the head from the body.
The mutilated boides wereall scorched and
blackened by the flames, the extremities
being burned to a crisp.
White is represented as having been a
very dissipated and intemperate man, and
living on disagreeable terms with his
family, towards whom ho exercised great
brutality, His wife had left him some
two weeks before this horrid event, hav
ing been impelled to do so by his ill treat
ment and her own feeble health. She call
ed on a neighbor, the day she parted
from her husband, and
.showed marks of
violence on her face and neck; saying
that White had chocked and beaten her.
She is now lying very ill at the . house of
a relative, and her recovery is considered
extremely doubtful,
Coroner Hooper was called and held an
ioquest on the bodies; the jury rendering
a verdict, that, in, their opinion James,
White had murdered his children by cut
ting their throats with' a shoe-knife, and
then, after firing his residence, had com
mitted suicide by cutting his own throat.
They also concluded, that , the deed had
been doe while laboring under the effects
of continued intoxication, as ho had been
known to have been drunk, almost con
stantly, for the past two or three weeks.
After the verdict was rendered, a pistol
was found in the room, and some of the
neighbors asserted that they had heard a
report of a pistol a short time before the
arm of fire was given. From the wound
on the • head of the child, it 'is ,presumed
that it was inflicted with this vfeapon.r—
The shoe-knife was found lying close, by
the side of the deceased, where it had
seemingly fallen from the grasp of the
wretched man, after he had given himself ,
the wound which terminated his existence.
During the whole of Saturday, the great
est excitement prevailed in that port of,
the city; hundreds of persons crowded to
the scene of this awful occurrence, to gaze
upon the remains of thoso who had been
thus hurried into futurity, in
.so. fearful a
manner. , ; .About twelve ,o'cleck, the re-i
latives of. White had the bodies removed
preparatory to burial. 'rho wife and
_daughter appeared to have , been , highly
respected and esteemed hy ,their .acquain
tances, and all who knew them testify to
their amiable conduct, and deplore, with un
feigne sorrotv the horrible death of the
daughter, and unfortunate bereavement of
the mother, who has not been madeac
quainted with the fearful calamity which
'has befallen her. • ,
