We quoted, says the New York Organ,
some time ago from a correspondent of
the Newark ..Daily Advertiser, an inter
esting account of Gem Washington, while
he was with the army ',Le Morristown, N. .1.
The Spine writer flirnishesithe following
respecting Mrs. Washington, which he ob
tained from an old family in Whippany,
N: J., 'twined Vail. Mrs. Vail's first hus
band's mother,. Mrs. Tuttle, was a sensi
ble and agreeable woman . , whose company
was much sought, even by those who, ow
ing tO their wealth, moved in moro fashion
ahle circles. Ainong other frequent visit
ova. was Mrs. Troupe, the lady of a half
pay captain in the British navy. She is
described as a lady of 'affable manners
and: of intelligence, !Arid much esteemed... 4
Ono day shayisited Mrs Tuttle, and the
usual compliments were hardly passed,
before she, said,;
"Well, what do you think, Mrs. T.; I
I ham been to see Lady Washington !" .
"Have you indeed 1 Then toll . me all
abont . how you found her ladyship, hoW
she appeared, and what she said."
"Well, I will honestly tell yea," an
swered Mrs. Troupe. "I never was so
ashamed in all my life. You see Mad
ura aud Madam - 7 ---, and ,I‘,(ladarn
Budd,. and myself, thought we would visit
Lady ,Washington, and as she was said ,to
be so grand a lady, we thOug,ht we must
put on our best bibs and bands. So we
dressed ourselves in our most elegant rut . -

she resumed her knitting. There we were,
without a stich of work, and sitting in
state, hut_ General .Washington's lady,
with her own hands, was knitting stock
.! legs for herself and dear, husband!
"And that was not all. In the afternoon
her ladyship 'took. occasion to say, in
way that we could not be offended, that at
that time. it was very important that Am

separation from the mother country will

To the stranger and indifferent, the infant
may seem, if not a cipher, a trouble, and
a wearisome, charge. But she whose own
bloo&flows in its veins, never forgets, and
never wearies.
We have .said Mary was still in the bloom
of,youth.. •Put ,the,blessom was sadly fa-.

the rose on her cheeks. A few days be

ful sighing, 'oldie. wretched, 'had comfort
ed her. The crisis hnd passed, and she
felt that natural composure . Which steals
on the soul, when all isdene i and all is suf
fered—the rest with which Heaven rewards
the patient and the dutiful..
Iler story . Was not a 'remarkable one, it
by remarkt.ble We mean to say unusual.
The appearance of the house indicated'
something or it,; for we imagine that there'
is always a significance in the aspect of a
dwelling which one of the late inmates had
just left, to go' to the "narrow house."—
Mary's husband had been consigned to the
grave. Ihe neighbors and friends who
had aided in the melancholy bustle of the
last offices, had returned to their homes,
and Mary sat with her babe in the silent
The husband whom she had buried out
or her sight was her choice,—her wilful
elpiio, made in spite" of the remonstrances,
tIM oh jectiens, and forebodings of her rela
tives.. For a short time after her union,
it seemed as if his life and prosperity were
to prove her triumphant answer to their
objections. All was sunny, cheerful, prom
ising. And the very friends who had
warned rind expostulated with her, were
willing to believe that they had been IA row?,
and Mary right; and that affection had t
not unerringly pointed out to her, excel
lencies of character which they had not
perceived. As if willing to atone for past
enmity by warm friendship, they crowded
advantages and facilities upon him, and
liberally opened the way •to wealth. For
a time, all succeeded that ho undertook,
and no young man in tho city seemed
more certainly assured ofeompetence than
he. And Mary, how happy she was ! We
can pardon her short period of exultation,,
fer site bitterly suffered for it.
Some men cannot bear prosperity ; and
henry Irvine was one of these. Give
them discouragements to meet, and uupro.
pitieus circumstances to combat, mad they
hew their way with a silent pride and res
olute perseverarice which 'conquers all ob
stacles. But let the sun shine on them,
then pride soon finds outrageous utterance
and their resolution degenerates into opin
ionated obstinacy. They take pleasure in
contemning, good ad vice,and will do wilful
ly wrong, and against their own convic
tion, to mark their indepenildnee. Henry
Irwine took early occasion to retaliate up
on his Wife's friends for what he affected
to regard its their unwarranta6leopposition.
Ho accused them, while they were in no
snit:di - degree the authors of his 'prosperity,
as being drawn t 6 !din fly it ; aridltitima

, the coolness becartle.mcire and' more

ndhe gloried , in moelung
proof, by persisting in. indiscretion. The
0 .1
end_ of such a course is easily' lirOphosied;
He fell among thieves; and for the wounds
of friends exchanged the selfish flattery of
knaves.• Plucked of :money, and bank
rupt in credit and character, he•awaked at
last to find himself a ruined man; with a
meek ; 'uncomplaning wife dependent on
him, and feeling twit() •as keenly' ns ho
did, all his ruin and degradation. The
temptation which has ruined many ; canio
in to complete his destruction. He sought
oblivien of his degradation in the:wine-cup,
and there lost the last redeeming trace or
hope of, manhood. It is a fearful fall,
when the appetites triumph, and the reas
on is dethroned; when the man wakes
ofily to misery, and rushes back tolnebri
ation again, in the vain hope to forget him
: self. • '
A lower depth still remained ; and lion
ry Irwine, found even that. His jaundiced
thoughts dared to suspect her who, for
love of him, had surrendered friends,home,
happiness, hope. Because she did,not, and
could not rail against her own, as lie did ;
because she was mtek, and quiet, and un
complaining, he quarrelled with her also.
He charged that she hated him, and re
gretted that het fate was coupled with his.
The last she could not deny ; the first he
saw in his Awn heart, and judged that it
nzust be in hers also. It is their own fan
cied concealed reflection in die good, that
the wicked hate.
And he dared, moreover to accuse his
wife ds the cause of all his misfortunes.—;
Ho said she triumphed in them I Can we
wonder that she did not say that:she did
not 7 It might have been 'dint she thought
such a charge too wickedly preposterous
to answer ; or, it might have been that
she was wearied into hate at last, and not
displeaSed to find that there' was one mode
in which she . could inflict pain on one who
had heaped so many wrongs on her. Mary
was drawing near her DAnts Iloun.
There is in most, if not all, careers, a
moment—the crisis of life ; an hour upon
which all the future hangs. That crisis
came to Mary Irwine.
Her house, derobed of many comforts,
was not yet quite d.solute. She clung,
while a glimmer cif hope remained, to her,
faith in her husband. She believed that
all who knew him did not knoW his degra
dation. She thought that she had Conceal
ed it from many ; and, fond simpleton !
imagined that men did not see through the ,
hollowneSs of her smile when she studio of

It was night and late. There were voi
ces, and a rude knock at the door. She
opened it, and her own brother entered,'
preceding the pobc"men, in whose custody
he had found the inebriate husband. She
looked, and comprehended aIL They laid
the senseless man on a sofa'; and the stran
ger lea the house.
"Put on your bonnet, Mary," said her
brother, and mine home with me."
Mary cast an eye on the wreck of her
love and hope. Loathing thowdits rose
within her ; she' made one step as if to
comply ; for escape was now first in her
thoughts, and she felt that she had borne
all that human nature could endure. The
child disturbed in its sleep recalled her to
the thought how hopeless was eitapo
the babe smiled, and in the smile she saw
the sunshine of other .days: Bowing over
the cradle,:she sobbed out of her heart all

TuL PRESlDENCY.—ttlfroris of a pecul•
iarly mean, insidious and unscrupulous
character are being made by agents 10' the
whig party to catch Irish votes for the Whig
candidate for the presidency. The deep
and well-grounded antipathy of Irishmen
to the English government is made. use of,
and they are asked to vote. for Scott,, be
cause, as is alleged, he carries "British
lean" about some portion of his body.—
The sacred name of religion is also used,
and Irishmen are lislied to vote for Scott
because a daughter of his has had the
grace to become a Cntholie. We allude
to these despicable efforts and the silly ar
guments by .which they aro sustained, be
cause WC conceive that the parties who use
them insult the understandings of Irishmen
and Catholics in the United States.' We
do not deny—no one can—to Gen, Scott
the merit of being a good soldier, but it
may be worth while to inqilire on what
occasion he received this dose of,"Britisb
lead" about which so much is said, It
waa'q One of the battles of the war of 1812
-,-La war declared and carried on by a dem
ocratic administration . ; and opposed in its
'inception and its progress by that whig
party of which Gen. Scott is now tho stan
dard-bearer. Had that whig party in pow
er in 1812 no war would have been de
clared in England, Scott would have won
no laurels, and the United States would
have been humiliated and disgraced. Dur
ing the war Scott, then a Junior officer,
obeyed the orders which he received from
his superiors, and fought gallantly ; but to
the party which originated the war is .due
the thanks of all true Americans and of
emery enemy of English, insolence. No
mutter what Scott's persenal merits,
he is noiv, and would be', if by accident he
should be elected, a tool in the hands',of
that party which; on every occasion since
the foundation oldie government, has lent
itself to the designs of t! - .e British govern
ment—that party with whom originated
the alien and sedition laWs of Sohn Adams
and whose most prominent leaders, even
of the present day, are tainted with the
spirit of native-Americanism—that party
who opposed every proposition for'llie ex
tension, by purchase or negotiation. of the

Henry lay some hours. weak but con
scious. Faithfully, but painfully . did his
wife, attend upon him for while the ne
cessity of attention and promptings of her
heart called her to his side, she grieved to
see that the sightof her face disturbed him;
disturbed him almost to distraction. And
who can wonder 1
It was a long, lona day. And dav pass
ed into evening, and evening into midnight,
before the care of her husband and her
child suffered her to test. Exhausted na
ture claimed her due, and Mary dreamed.
She was back in the joy of other years—
yet over that joy there seemed a sadness.
People were decrying him to her, mid she
was zealously defending him ns she had
often done, And while she dreamed she
thought his pleasant voice spake in her ear
"Mary !" Again she spake,and now she
sprang up and went to his b edside.
"Can you tbrgive me l"
"Forgive you, ckarest . 1 " She did not
knov whether she was asleep or awake—
whether he spoke in fact and deed or
whether the voice were a dream voice.--;
So, for want of further words, she placed
her cheek to his..
'God bless you, Mary ! /Vow I can rest.'
Ile fell asleep. .But the shock his health
had received was, not to be retrieved,
so easy as by one night's rest. On the
morrow he was both better and worse, for
there was less strength.
And so %tore day after day. We need
not relate how with sure progress, but slow
death mastered his victim; for Ilenry
wino's days were numbered. - And we need
not describe how the young wile hovered
over his couch, and his weary life was
closed in forgiveness and peace. Brothers
and friends she lacked none now ; forlle
who calls us hence by death, has surroun
ded its approach with circumstances which
remove enmities and disarm hate. He pass
ed away quietly, and his last illness left a
gentle memory of him in men's hearts.
There was a sound of wheels at the door.
"Now, daughter," said her mother, ns she
entered, "we have come for you as we
promised. Come home again to our hearth
and hearts. .Forget that you ever were

mother could make no reply, and Mary
said :
