GOSSIP ABOUT G}O. WASHINGTON. Hie Heine and' Habits in Philadelphia. `From contributtop to Yleirlbana,HotOe. by ttrace <1 eenwond.) Awhile since, in, looking over a Phila delphia Directory for 1797, my heart gave a great bound as I came upon the entry: "Washington, George,l9o , lllgh street." To the disgrace of , Philadelphia. , 'that honse,tecond only in historic interest to Independence Hall, was many years ago demolished. •But, for a feW charmed hours of - a mid - :tamer evening, that mansion has stood •':ain for me, at4Wasbingtonhaiwalked before my eyes `in his habit as he lived;'.' and yetshe only magic conjuration was the clear memory of a gracious old man, who, in his early childhood, was neigh.' bor•of Washington, his parents living, I believe, on Sixth street, near High. At the house of a friend in Philadel phia, I was so fortunate as to meet Kr. Robert E. Gray, a - than"past foursomy but wonderfully well preserved—looking much younger than his years—a gentle• man of the old school in courteousness of manner, in elegance and neatness of dress, stately in figure, with a fresh and handsome countenance. In person and demeanor, he reminded me strongly, of Walter Savage Landor, as I saw him in his eighty first year. • When I asked this noble relic of the past for his recollections of Washington, he said: "Bless you, I little to tell. I was so very young at the time when I knew him that I have only childish re collections, mere trifles, which will scarcely interest you." On my assuring hini that these were just the things I wanted to hear, he talked modestly, and with much questioning, of the old.days of Philadelphia, and of the great Presi dent and his household. , In his childhood, he said, the place where we theu were, on Tenth street near Arch, with the-roar of the great city about us, was quite in the rural districts. He remembered going to bathe in the little pond, near the corner of Sixth and Arch streets, a secluded an& shaded spot. High reet, the fashionable avenue, was only paved as far up as . Ninth, but it was planted with rows of the Lombardy pop lar nearly out to the Schuylkill, and was the favorite Sunday promenade of the citizens. "Washington's house," said Mr. Gray., "was thought a very fine mansion. It was what was called 'a house and a halt' —that is, the hall was not in the middle, but had two windows at the right, and one window at the left. It was two stories and a half high, with dormer windows. It was rented for the President, of Robert Morris, but originally belonged to Gallo way, the Tory." • \\•• Was'- Washington the stately and formal personage he has been repre sented I' "Yes be was a very dignified "gentle man, with the , most elegant manners— very nice in his dress, careful and punct ual. I suppose he would be thought a little stiff now,a days." "Did you ever hear him laugh heartily?" "Why, no, I thinkl never did." , "Was he alwayssgrave. as you remem ber him, or did he-smile now and then ?" "Why, bless von, yes, he always smiled on children! lie was particularly popu lar with small boys: When he went In state to Independence Hall,‘ln his cream colored chariot, drawn by six ,P,ays, and with postilions and oiat-riders, and when he set out for and returned front \ Mount Vernon, we boys were on hand; he;pould always count us in, to. Luna and wave our hats for him, and he used to torch ' his hat to us as politely as though we hid been so many veteran soldiers on parade." "Were you ever in his house, as 'a child ?'" - "Oh ! yes; after his _great dinners he used to tell the steward to let in the littie fellows and we, the boys of the immed, ate nei:thborhood, who were never far oft on such occasions, crowded about the table and made quick work with•tthe re.; 'paining cakes, nuts and raisins." " ' t, "Washingto n had a bad habit of ptice ing up`and down the largalront room on the first floor, in the early'twilight„ . with bis bands behind him; awl one evening a little boy, who had never seen him, in attempting to climb up to an open win. dow to look in upon him, fell and hurt himself. Washington heard him cry,' rung for'a servant. and sent him to in quire about the accident--for; after all,' be was very softehearted, at"leut toward children. The servant. Cote back and , mid- 'The boy woo tsylog-,(6 gent look ME IS VITISBURGH GAZETTE: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 1869. at yon sir.' him in,' said the GeneAl..andovhen the boy came in. he .oittealdm on the head and said: 'You wanted to see- General Washington, did you? Well, lam General Wasedgm' But the little fellow shook uls Read and, said: 'No, you are 01117' just a man, i want to see the Prnment' "They say 1 ngton laughed, and 13 " 1 " told the h.., that he was the President, A ....an for all that. Then he had the _giant give the little fellow some nuts and cakes and dismissed him." • I asked Mr. Gray if he- remembered the Custis children. "Yes," he said; "I often saw them at the windows, or driving out with Mrs- Washington in her English coach." They did not seem to have left a very vivid and human impression on his mem ory. With their fine clothes and com pany manners. with their attendants, tutors, dancing and music masters, they seemed very strange, inaccessible, and unneviable little personages to all the happy, free•and-easy children of the neighborhood. "Do you remember Washington's levees, and Mrs. Washington's drawing rooms?" I asked. "Yes, I remember hearing about them. All the evening parties were over by nine o'clock, and the President's house was dark and silent by., ten. They were,great affairs, but I was 'too young to know ranch about thenl2 l / I attended his' horn lateen .1 was veryfound of - visiting his Stables, early in the morninvat the hour when, he always went to inspect them. I 'liked, to see him at that work, for he seemed to enjoy .it himself. Like Presi ,dent Grant, he was a great lover of horses. I can almost think I see him now, come striding out of his house, across the yard to the stables, booted and spurred, but bare•headed and In his shirt•sleeves." "Washington in his shirt-sleeves!". "Yes, madam; but he was always Washington. The grooms stood asice, silent and respectful, while he examined every stall and manger, and regularly went Over every horse—l mean, he passed over a portion of its coat his large white hand, always looking to see if it was Boiled, or if any loose hairs had come off on it. If so, the groom was reprimanded and ordered to do his work over. G4n. erally, however, Washington would say: 'Very well. Now, John, get pit Pres cott and Jackson.' his white chargers. 'l'll be ready by the time you come round.''" "Did he ride at so early an hoar?" . "Yes. Generally between five and six of a pleasant morning he was off; and he almost - always rode up to Point.no- Point, on the Delaware, a little way above Richmond. He was a fine horseman, and, being a long-bodied man, looked grandly, on horseback. It was a sight worth getting up early to see." Here came a pause, and then I pro pounded the momentous old question: "Did. Washington ever swear?" "Well; as for that, I cannot speak from my own observation. Washington had great self-control—he was a moral man— 's religions man, for those times, and 'did not swear Upon . small occasions, and, I should say, never before children; but, from what I have heard my father and old soldiers say, I think he must have blazed away considerably in times of great ex citement. lie was very tender of his fa vorite horse, and at one time I remember to have heard a young aid or secretary ask leaie to ride one of his white charg ers, on the way to Mount Vernon, and the General allowed Erato, but cau tioned him not,to rein up the horse too tightly. After a while Washington saw he was worrying the animal, and cautioned him again; bat the fellow kept on pulling and jerking at the bit until the creature be came almost unmanageable. "Then Washington broke upon him, like a whole battery, ordered him to dis mount, and swore tremendously. I re member, too, that I once heard an army officer tell about his cursing some,General who disobeyed him in battle." "Lee, at.Monaiionth ? " "Yes, I believe so. Anyhow, my in foment said it, was the greatest sort of swearing, yet wasn't so awful as Wash ington's face at the time. He said, I re member: never saw the devil before.' "These things were told of him, but not told against him. It was the fashion of those times. However, I never heard a rough word from him, or saw his face when it was not peaceful and pleasant."
