she raised her eyes to Ids face, and in an

against the wall of tho room, ho gave him

regained some control over hi) feelings,
and still kept at a distance from her nay,
conquered himself, so far as to repair to
tho drawing room, to escape from her Uan
crous vicinity. Ho saw her not again
until sho was equipped for her departure.
Then hho contrived to get near him, and
threw so much sweetness and melancholy
into her voice, as she said "good night,
Mr Wcstbury," that ho was instantly dis
armed and drawing her arm within his,
conducted her from tho room

voice, " how, Maria, could you sing that

Washington stopped at the end to let Mr.

or rather looso cuffs. IIo also woro wrist
ruillos. IIo had not changed his fashions.

"General Washington's dress was a full
suit ol black. His military hat had the
black cockade. There stood the father of
his Country, acknowledged by nations "tbo
first in war, first in peace, first iu tho
hearts of hi3 couutrjmen." No marshaL,
with gold colored scarfs; no cheering. The
most profound stillness greeted him, as if
tint great assembly desired to hear him
breathe nnd catch his breath tho homagu
of the heart. Mr. Adams covered his faco
with both his hands. The sleeve of his
coat and his hands were covered with tears.
Every now and then thcro was a suppressed
sob. I cannot deseribo Washington's ap
pearance as I felt it perfectly composed
and self-possessed till the close of his ad
drees. Then, when strong men's sobs
broko loose, when tear covered their
faces, then the great man was shaken. I
never took my eyes from his face. Laro
drops cauiofrom his cye3. He looked to
the grateful children who were parting with
their father, their friends, a3 if his heart
was with them and would be to tho end."
